Did we mention it's all free download the Odyssey app today? Good morning to you. It's so Wednesday and it's November 2nd Whoo, we survived the first day. We survived the football workweek We survived the first set of college football playoff rankings. We survived game three of the world series.
Steve Nash did not survive November as the head coach of the Brooklyn Nets Thank you for all your questions for asking me anything. Jay is right. You rallied I had I had zero doubt I have so much faith I've already gone back and answered some of your questions And so you can find them on our Facebook page the thread is there after hours with Amy Lawrence or on our Twitter page I haven't yet gotten to the ones on Twitter But I will generally I don't get to the ones on Twitter until I wake up on Wednesday afternoon But I promise that I will respond to the questions that I can answer quickly Not the ones that asked me for my pick to win the Super Bowl But it's after hours with Amy Lawrence our hump show here on CBS Sports Radio So on Twitter after-hours CBS We will reveal your choice for TD of the week the last I knew it was literally going down to the wire mere percentage points Separating our top two candidates Jay is the poll done or people still able to vote? There are 18 minutes left. Oh go and it is very close. Go go go ready break go Omaha Honestly one vote new direction could be the different No, there's way too many votes for that one vote.
Yeah, I know but one vote would be like if we had 11 votes Okay Anyway, whether it's Twitter after-hours CBS or our Facebook page You can still vote for TD of the week as Jay mentions. It is very close in addition We've got a show question out there that we think is producing a variety of interest Answers a wondrous variety a smorgasbord if you will Because in light of the Phillies Dominating the postseason at Citizens Bank Park. We felt like this was a good opportunity to throw it out there Which teams actually do carve out a real? Tangible home field home court or home ice advantage and that doesn't mean they win all of their games at home But it does mean the fans create an advantage that literally can sway plays snaps moments It makes a difference now sometimes in football that's tangibly measured by say false start penalties for the visiting team or when teams can't communicate and One of the first places I thought of is Arrowhead Stadium I've been there for a football game on the field and you cannot hear yourself. Think it's insane It's amazing, but it's insane There are certainly atmospheres in college football like that and some of you have responded to the question on both of our social media sites with college football home field Advantages there are certainly some in basketball and then obviously when we're talking about hockey, it's not court or field It's ice. So we didn't want to leave out hockey so it doesn't again doesn't mean they win there all the time, but it does mean that when it comes to The games that matter when it comes to the rubber meeting the road so to speak the fans are so Invested they're so passionate. They're so Ready to be part of the event to be part of the series or the game That they bring it and they don't just react to what's happening on the field the court the ice they actually set a tone That the opposing team has to walk into and deal with Like the Seattle Seahawks who call it the 12th man Or the Texas A&M Aggies at Kyle Field who call it the 12th man Those fans are engaged the entire time regardless of what's happening on the field and it really is about the fans It can be about the dimensions.
I suppose it can be about the acoustics But it's really about the fans We see multiple stadiums and venues around the country That are gorgeous and state-of-the-art the the newest technology They're a lot of fun to visit, but they don't necessarily have the character or the fan Support or the advantage that comes with some of the older places some of the places where fans maybe have a history Where they have a connection with the venue and the team that plays there and right now? I think it's very evident that the Phillies and their fans have carved out a real tangible home field advantage Because they have not lost at home in these playoffs But also because the fans are and I say this in a positive way. It's a compliment absolutely and utterly insane It's after hours here on CBS Sports radio So let's talk about game three of the World Series. It was delayed but in all of its glory We got the fireworks. We waited for right off the top two outs rudder at first And the colors kicks and comes home with the pit swung on hit the right field and the Phillies are gonna lead it Yeah, they are Bryce Harper Has put the Phillies on top with a two-run home run over the out-of-town scoreboard Simply amazing Harper here at home has hovered on back-to-back swings Listen at this crazy That is Phillies radio and I just adore listening to them It's been not so and you don't get the full effect of the fans behind them, but a taste of it I not only listen on the radio but watched on TV and the roars Captivating electrifying certainly the buzz the energy and the Phillies fans deserve credit for that and Bryce Harper knows it Well having a first inning no doubt her home run off Lance McCullers was massive Just walking into the ballpark.
I mean just being back home. I think is such a momentum swing for us Just for the pure fact of our fan base I mean that we all come in here and we're ready to go and we're excited to get on the field because we know they're gonna show up and you know, there's gonna be 46,000 people here screaming and yelling going crazy and You know this whole this whole city is so excited to be in this moment And we're just you know thrilled to be able to play in front of them and have this opportunity and you know Just be here with them. They're like the Eagles. They get better every game There's really something. Yeah, it's really good There's a lot of love between the Phillies and the Eagles the two franchises right now who are pursuing something special That's Rob Thompson who compares the Phillies fans to the Eagles who get better every single game So that was your first inning blast from Bryce Harper and right after he goes through the handshake line And they do all their their fun gestures and the connections with every single player.
I don't know how they remember that stuff I can't even remember well, I don't have a good analogy right off the top right now, but I Couldn't imagine remembering all those. I'm always in awe of baseball and softball teams because they all have special Handshakes between each one of them And so after Bryce Harper does that and gets back to the top step of the dugout Into the on deck circle. He starts yelling Boomer Boomer to his teammate Alec bone So bone was standing there getting ready to hit and it was it was a mic that just happened to be right there And it was very clearly Harper yelling at his teammate to try to get his attention. So boomer comes back boom. Sorry, I don't call him boomer boom comes back to Bryce Harper, they have a Private moment a conversation and while boom did not Get on base in that moment. It wasn't long before he took that advice to heart and the pitch to Alec boom Blasted left field deep cover is back. He turns he looks It's gone it just clears lead off homer here in the second for Alec Boom on a low laser just over the left field wall and it's three nothing filly Swung on hit in the air high deep right field Tucker drifting back to the track at the wall He jumps and it's off the top of the wall.
Is it a homer? They say yes Brandon Mars, well got hit in the air center field going back on his McCormick back toward the wall Here's the two-two pitch the Hoskins swung on hit in the air deep to left field Back to back And Hoskins Reese is pumping his fist going around second base seven nothing Phillies whose house mercy Once again, Scott Franske and company Tom McCarthy, it's it's all in the pool. Everybody's in the pool Everybody's taken a whether it's Phillies radio whether it's the Phillies on the base pass They hit home runs in the first in the second in the fifth innings And at that point Lance McCullers, they had no choice, but to pull him dusty Baker had no choice, but to pull him When Alec Bohm was interviewed on Fox by Ken Rosenthal, of course Ken asked him Now I don't love these conversations in the dugout while the game is going on.
It's it's not my favorite I don't know. I suppose it's cool access, but it doesn't seem like you ever get anything real anyway, regardless that's something that Fox now has in its repertoire during this postseason and And Ken asked him what did Bryce Harper say to him? And of course his response was that's private between the two of us but later because of the speculation and how well the Phillies were able to get to Lance McCullers and shots both had a lot to say about what Lance was throwing and the fact that He wasn't able to throw some of the pitches that he normally does because of the aggressiveness and because of how well the Phillies Hitters are locked in right now But regardless the idea came up that McCullers was tipping pitches possibly And so the question was is that what Bryce Harper was telling Alec Bohm and other players after he had his home run? These guys they're always talking communicating What they're seeing and what pick what the pitches look like to them understand in the box. So that's pretty normal I think guys have conversations all the time, you know before at bats and Before innings and things like that.
So I'm not gonna sit here and and say anything like that. They I Got whoop in the story. That's not anything I notice I mean, you know guys are always looking for for something always looking to see if they're tipping their pitches and You know, we didn't say anything I mean sometimes they just they just hit you, you know what I mean? And like I said You know who knows they might have been sitting on off-speed pitches cuz that's what they hit out of the ballpark Yeah, it did seem like there could have been a variety of explanations You hear dusty Baker and before that Lance McCullers guys talk all the time and certainly they're sharing Intel and that happens in every sport If you're not sharing Intel, then you're missing opportunities based on what you've seen in in these matchups So that's not anything different or strange as for the tipping pitches I mean, it's it's like anything else in baseball right once you but actually it's not just baseball think how often this happens in football Where a defensive group can figure out what's happening on the offensive side of the ball They can pick up on particular tendencies or particular directions Which way the ball goes how the offensive line dictates what happens in the backfield based on what they hear at the line of scrimmage Which is why you constantly have to change it So whether it was tipping pitches or whether it was a pattern whatever it was These guys are professional hitters. These are professional athletes.
They know what to look for They can do this stuff in their sleep. So it is certainly beholden on Lance McCullers on his battery Just like it is on an offensive line or a quarterback to change up the terminology you use to change up how you run plays because Smart athletes on the other side who get paid to are going to figure it out If you become too formulaic if you're big your patterns become too obvious But Lance McCullers wasn't really concerned about whether or not that was the case He just recognizes that this was a tough go and feels like he lets his team down. I got beat man, you know, they They had a lot of a lot of solid pitches. I thought But you know at the end of the day You know, we got beat pretty bad and I got beat up pretty bad. They just had good at bats you know, I mean, I felt like I made some adjustments and we're on a little bit of a of a Decent run there toward the middle of the game and then obviously, you know, they had two homers to before I got taken out so you know, this is a game of adjustments and they're a good team I've said that before and I got beat today Lance McCullers wasn't the only reason they lost but certainly that makes it very difficult to rally from and Obviously takes a lot of pressure off the pitchers for the Philadelphia Phillies. It's after hours here on CBS Sports Radio So there were five home runs all of them off Lance Seven runs total cross the plate in the four and the one-third innings It's the first World Series victory for the Phillies since game five in 2009 and they do it with a record by hitting five home runs off one pitcher now You could say that's on dusty for not pulling Lance before that there certainly is a debate to be had there But yeah, the Phillies offense has been locked in for weeks now because they've been living on the edge They were the last team to get into the playoffs and they've had to continue hitting like this just to survive It's pretty evident what kind of threat they pose and they can get the ball out of the ballpark and they can hit and so You know, we just got to go back to the drawing board and and then figure was it was it them tonight?
Or was it Lance tonight, you know not having his off The Phillies now have seven home, excuse me, 17 home runs in six games and In the last six games of the playoffs It's clear that their best hitters are playing their best and performing their best on the game's biggest stage And that's what you want. Obviously, I don't believe in destiny necessarily But I do believe that everything can come together at the right time and some of its tangible some of its measurable Some of its not this team had to Perform as though in the postseason with that sense of urgency for weeks and weeks just to get back to the point where they were Relevant in a division. That's so difficult with the Mets and the Braves winning 101 games I've said it over and over again their playoff run started long before October and they've been able to maintain that but it's also The the chemistry this group fighting for each other believing that it's it's us in this in this clubhouse And and that's it.
Nobody else believes in us. That's very powerful as the sports team So all of it is coming together in the perfect time for the Phillies But let's be honest the guys still have to perform on this stage and to see what Bryce Harper is doing in the playoffs The fact that he's now got six home runs in the playoffs the way that Kyle Swarber has rallied from it was a slow start if I remember correctly for the Phillies when They played the Cardinals first and then it gets the Braves and Swarber took a little longer to find his stroke and to find That rhythm but JT real mucho. We're talking about the Stars who are showing up not just them But they're the ones setting the tone and it's been really impressive to watch these Phillies as for the Astros They certainly can answer their offense was anemic last night and that's on them They actually only had three opportunities with runners in scoring position They left eight guys on base, but only five hits. So there has to be some responsibility for them as well It's not just about the pitching staff now moving forward It'll be interesting to see Whether or not dusty Baker is quicker to go to his his bullpen or quicker to make a change That obviously a criticism and it's been something that's plagued him a little bit throughout his time as a manager in the postseason What we've got for game four tonight Christian Javier of the Astros Aaron Nola who is the game one starter. He will return as the game for starters So the opener was Friday night and now he'll come back on this Wednesday night with the pushback certainly helped And then I don't know if it will end up being a close-out game. I do believe the Astros are gutty They got a lot of experience in these situations. So I wouldn't be surprised if they come back with a win on Wednesday But if they don't Justin Verlander Game five would be Justin Verlander His World Series numbers his World Series performances are brutal He's got he's got he's accomplished.
He's been honored for pretty much everything else You can possibly do and be in baseball But he does not have a World Series win and the numbers are stark contrast to what else he's done in his career This could be the time and it could be that it's the last opportunity for the Astros But we won't know that till we get through Wednesday All right, you can find me on Twitter a law radio. Love to hear the best home field home court home ice advantages in sports We'll run through some of those before we hit the top of the hour and then producer J's Retweeting some of them on our show account after our CBS the NFL trade deadline featured some pretty active Movement and some big-name players some fantasy guys that are gonna change uniforms straight ahead though. It caught me off-guard Maybe later in the season it would not have but Steve Nash out in Brooklyn and E-Mae U-Doka could soon be the new head coach of the Nets You'll hear from Kevin Durant as well as our Nets insider who joined us earlier in the show It's after hours with Amy Lawrence our home show here on CBS Sports radio. You are listening to the after-hours podcast We both felt this was this was time It was certainly trending in that way and to be quite frank the team was Was not doing what it was supposed to be doing? This is after hours with Amy Lawrence Nets general manager Sean Marks on parting ways with Steve Nash It was a two and five start for the Nets the season before They lost last night to the Chicago Bulls in a rally in the fourth quarter by Chicago But a two and five start under Steve Nash and then the change Jacques Vaughn is now the interim head coach again So Sean Marks, how much did the players have to do with this decision to part ways with Steve?
Zero. Well, there was zero input from from any of the players on this. I think this was a decision that We didn't need that Steven.
I didn't need that. I'm obviously I've talked to Joe about this But the players were not consulted. They were they were told ahead of time that this was the direction we were going to today But I don't think we needed that You know that input right now I believe him I just think it's ironic that they listened to Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving when they hired Steve Nash because this was the guy They wanted not Jacques Vaughn now Vaughn is back as the interim and Steve Nash is out and who knows where they look At this point Kevin Durant after the Bulls lost his reaction to Steve Nash's ouster All shocked. I mean, you're always shocked when a move like this happens, but it's normal in NBA You know, so it's about getting ready for the game tonight.
There's a lot of stuff. We didn't have a healthy team Just didn't play well And that's what happens in the league so That doesn't take away from Steve's basketball IQ his how he teaches the game I don't think that takes away from anything. It just didn't we just didn't work out. I like working with Steve I like working with the coaching staff. It was a roller coaster the last few years But you know the core of it basketball is something that we all love to do, you know, so Regardless of who to coach regardless of you know, the circumstances still got to come to work So I enjoy coming to work with Steve Am I the only one that thinks that's disingenuous after he gave an ultimatum to joe psy That he would only return obviously they didn't trade him But he would only return if sean marks and steve nash were fired. Okay It's after hours with amy lawrence cbs sports radio had a chance to catch up with new york post insider Brian lewis who joined us earlier in the show and I asked him Why even bother bringing steve back to start the season if this was the way ultimately it would go? I asked john mark that question and I didn't really get a concise answer Please know what if you if you thought that this was the right move in training camp then Why isn't it the right move now? And I suppose their contention is that they gave it at least some opportunity During the regular season preseason and regular season And it was obvious that the team was not going in the correct direction That they were backsliding And that they weren't getting the production That they'd hoped for But I think it was fairly obvious that The primary party kevin Tyree Etc They were not clearly responding Shall we say brian lewis covers Everything that is the nets and their winding road for the new york post It's after hours with amy lawrence here on cbs sports radio the headline on your column about steve nash's tenure ending Includes the word mercifully and then in quotes as things came to a head.
Are you referring to? On the court or does this include everything that's been happening with the nets? Like the kairi irving situation Well, I don't consider the kairi irving situation over and even when it is there'll be another one when i'm saying came to a head I mean sean and steve Whoever friendship that goes back decades They've been in constant communication That's not a new thing So we're talking about communication over the past week About these guys aren't responding they're not hearing what i'm saying I can't drag out of them what i'm trying to drag out of them, etc Etc, etc And i'm saying those conversations finally came to a head And they decided to part ways the name out there is imayudoka as you've referenced and he was a part of the staff before he Took that celtics gig. We know what happened with boston kind of at least the fact that it seems like the celtics were not Interested in bringing him back once the suspension was handed down.
What does it take to get him? Release from boston and back in brooklyn? I don't think it'll take that much. I do not think this is a situation where Boston would hold brooklyn hostage Uh in terms of draft compensation and so forth which at least to me Tells me if you have a youngish coach who just led your team to the nba finals And you are willing to let him go to a division rival That is loaded with talent And you're willing to let him go with no sort of compensation that would terrify me as to What i'm not seeing And that would scare me that i'm only seeing the tip of the iceberg, but I don't know I don't know what the celtics know I don't know what it is that we don't know Uh, but I don't figure it will take a ton of compensation To free him from the rest of his contract and get him to brooklyn.
I don't think that's going to be A difficult hurdle clear getting back to the team the last time you and I spoke we were in the throes of Kyrie whether or not he would pick up his option and then boom right on the heels of him doing that Kevin Duran asked for a trade you already mentioned this conversation that he had with joe sai about trying to get steve nash And shawn marks ousted that didn't happen So here we are one big happy family though minus steve nash is all of that forgotten brian Forgotten by whom? By the team by I don't know by the locker room by the general manager by the owner Are they just agreeing to let all of that be in the past? I don't think they have a choice Here's the thing.
Good point. They don't have better options Kevin duran's not a fool. He looked around at the landscape And he realized the nets are not giving him away for nothing And he also realized that if the nets could extract even close to the price that they wanted The team that he's going to Is going to be a picked over cartoness and he's going to be playing by himself And the net He never wanted to trade him They grudgingly did their due diligence and said okay. What's out there that we could pry away from other teams? What's our asking price?
What could possibly be our guests? And then they looked and they said none of these deals Are to our liking? It's an uneasy marriage Uh, you might say it's a marriage of convenience, but it's certainly better than the option and I think all sides realize Great stuff from brian lewis of the new york post who covers both the nets and the nba I tweeted his line a little while ago just because it resonated with me I told him when he was on the show that I was going to use it and I was going to attribute the line to him quote The nets do drama far better than they do basketball right now And if you're wondering About the kairi irving situation and the options for the team Plus the relative silence from the nba We also go over that and certainly still a topic of conversation around the league And I haven't forgotten it. I don't think anyone else has forgotten it in basketball circles. It's just just Eerily quiet around him and wondering if there is going to be any type of discipline or any type of ramification Uh that comes down because of the tweet that he's now deleted But that was the link to the movie that had definite anti-semitism in it He has said he didn't endorse it. He doesn't endorse it but to share the link like that can be looked at by a lot of people as support or as uh agreement It's a sticky situation on social media always there's something else that brian told us and again You'll want to check out this conversation on our podcast after hours. Amy Lawrence calm Is that one of the reasons kairi has not been made available to the media is because? When he was over the weekend, it went so horribly wrong The nets did not like how it went with kairi the last time he was in front of microphones And they do not want him out there now and so until they feel like they can trust him Or they have some handle on what he might say They're not comfortable putting him out there in front of the microphones. That's directly from Brian who you know was part of that press conference with shawn marks on tuesday So there's a lot there make sure you check it out for the latest details and this emau doka wrinkle It's interesting. I mean it's it's certainly what the celtics wanted someone else to take him off their hands so that and And they're going to get compensated for it because he's still an active coach.
He's still there Well active is the wrong word. He's still their coach And so this is best case scenario for boston and maybe for The nets as well because they have a history with them. These guys know him. He certainly does Have a working relationship with players. That's productive.
But what do we not know? There's the part that's Interesting intriguing and and Certainly seems like the nets walk into these types of situations all the time. This is their specialty Jay hates it when I say this, but I gotta be honest. They are the cleveland browns of the nba.
They do this to themselves They do they know the potential and how often does it backfire in their faces? Is it's after hours with amy lawrence nfl trade deadline on tuesday, man? A lot of big names big fantasy movers and shakers that are now on the moving And shaking you are listening to the after hours podcast You're listening to after hours with amy lawrence firing for the end zone. Come on touch down Touchdown takes it himself to the power touchdown one man to beat ten.
He's gone. They throw the end zone Touchdown say the guy missed he's inside the five. He's to the three-two-one The people have spoken and one score stands above the rest here is your td of the week Like The san francisco 49ers kettle in c is inside of iuke right they motion mccaffrey backwards pass to mccaffrey And he's gonna throw down feel wide open Touchdown San fran cisco I don't think anyone ever has a perfect game, you know, I think anytime you check the tape, you know Regardless of the statistics. There's always a couple plays here or there where Uh, you're kind of beating yourself up about so i'm sure that'll happen I think everyone knows how good of a player he is So I just like how consistent he is and under control on what he does He's he's a very smart player and even though he makes a lot of plays and stuff But the consistency of how he plays his game and stuff. I feel like was a great guy to add for us Christian mccaffrey the trifecta and Not only was he asked about it being a perfect day You chose his throwing touchdown to brandon iuke on niner's radio as your td of the week You hear greg papa and tim rice and then kyle shanahan about the addition and if you haven't heard the story they were going through some of their various options and kind of drawing up game plans and um looking at What they could do to change it up and to create new wrinkles against the rams and he Yells out to his table Anybody know if christian can throw the ball? And one of his coaches came back to him with a video showing christian throwing the football And so they decided to incorporate that and it turns into A long touchdown pass in addition to that though. George kittle was a guest on serious xm NFL radio on tuesday and he was asked about christian's huge day and how he changes things for the niners He was inspired by the world series and hit the trifecta today, you know passing catching and a rushing touchdown. Uh, love to see it Being around him for just a week and see the hard work he puts in every single day And just adding a dollar already talented roster just makes a lot easier on everybody else because the cuts he makes he's really hard to tackle He's slippery and he's just an overall baller. So it's very fun to play with him.
He's slippery. I love that Uh, george kittle also had a touchdown on sunday against the rams. So again serious xm nfl radio It's after hours with amy lawrence on cbs sports radio. We're live from the rocket mortgage studios Do you need to know what it takes for a home to fit your budget and your family? rocket cam some fairly intriguing moves most of them based on Finances and draft picks and positioning for the future But at the nfl trade deadline we had some big names.
I don't know why I just hiccup. Sorry We had some big names some pro bowlers Who changed teams like bradley chubb the the outside linebacker for the denver broncos? So they've now divested themselves Of two of their best defensive players in the last two years in first von miller And now bradley chubb and in exchange for chubb to the dolphins. They do receive a package that includes a 2023 first round pick And so this is clearly the aim for the broncos having traded away so much of their Draft capital to get russell wilson Now they have to sacrifice one of their best defensive players to bring in a first round pick Listener on facebook asked me if this made the broncos better Hell, no, how do you get better by trading away a pro bowl linebacker in exchange for draft picks?
That does not make you better but this is the state that the broncos are in and Maybe they don't have designs on making the playoffs or rallying from the hole that they're in It just sends such a discouraging message to the fan base. I think now the dolphins were active. Not only did they add bradley chubb It's huge. Oh before we move on Bradley actually was tracked down by reporters as he was leaving the broncos facilities on tuesday You know, it's the business side of it. I understand that It sucks at the moment, but just because of guys i'm leaving back the the relationships about building these past couple years Just like walking into this facility every day is going to be different to go into a different one But i'm excited about the new journey guy has for me for me and my family So i'm looking forward to it kind of just all coming to a halt Even earlier today, I was kind of up in the air how i should feel and stuff like that So now it's just good to be in the right state of mind and understand what the task a hand is down and just go out there And so that's bradley chubb before he left denver and now joins the miami dolphins Broncos then turn around and make a trip. This is the part that's crazy They turn around and make a trade for a pass rusher in defensive end jacob martin from the jets. He still has to pass a physical He's got a sack and a half For the jets to this point and he signed with them as a free agent So they exchange a pole bowler for another guy who they think can help but they don't have to give up nearly as much and Really getting the first round pick was important to them The dolphins make another move in bringing in jeff wilson from the niners And I think this is really interesting because mike mcdaniel has such a great familiarity Not just with jeff wilson, but with rahi mostard as well who we've seen get a lot of play Early on with the dolphins.
So those two guys are reunited in the dolphins back field where they were together in the niners back field There were some other weapons that were on the move too like nyem heinz colts running back slash receiver Headed to the buffalo bills I know the bills were looking to upgrade remember. They were one of the teams that inquired about christian mccaffrey obviously the rams did too and This is a this is a I think it's a nice pairing. I like it I do feel like they need to have more games in which their run game is not Is not sparked by josh allen.
He's a tough guy. He's physical He's obviously a big and he's athletic and he's powerful I don't need him to be leading the bills in rushing. I don't think that's their best offensive plan sometimes scrambles Yes, extending plays if there are openings you want him to be smart and take what the defense gives him But I don't love any quarterback leading his team in rushing and certainly not josh allen who is Is I believe far more dangerous with his arm? Um as much as he can get out and run and I think that mobility is a weapon for him Too often he is the bill's top rusher So let's see what they can do in exchange for zach moss They bring in nyem heinz and they've been trying to add a certainly a running back But a running back who is also able to to catch out of the backfield, which is what christian mccaffrey does So well, all right, so that's a move for the bills that definitely weakens the colts in fact heinz had a touchdown Over the weekend against the commanders too, but you can kind of see the line of demarcation As for receivers the bears pick up chase claypool from the pittsburgh steelers And this is one that general manager ryan polles has kind of added to his list of moves now He's a first-year gm. He also traded away roquon smith Uh and robert quinn in other deals and now he brings chase claypool back to chicago I am Excited about this player, you know I really like the way that our offense is is starting to come together and move I thought it was important to add another Impact player to our offense to go along with the guys that we currently have in the receiver room right now I like the way just in this trending and I think adding another Um Big body whose physical explosive great leaping ability can stretch the field but also Is is violent with a ball in his hand as well as a blocker. I think that enhances everyone around him You may have noticed that The bears don't have or didn't have a viable threat at receiver darnell moody Is their leading receiver? That's not like I said moody.
I meant to say moonie didn't quite come out that way Maybe he is moody. Who knows? Anyway, he's the guy that leads them With 25 catches, but he's got no touchdowns through eight games.
So they do not have a number one wide receiver chase play Oh heavens. Okay, it's wednesday morning. It's the hump show i'm starting to lose it It's all going to heck in a hand basket right now. Let's see if I can survive for the next 90 seconds. Okay? I'm all about the beefcake boys.
I'm not about the acting. Uh, so chase claypool instantly moves to their number one wide receiver spot Something interesting about chase in his two plus years. He has over 2 000 yards and a dozen touchdowns 10 of those touchdowns though came in his rookie year Can he find some new life now from the end of ben roethlisberger's tenure to mitch trubisky and then on into? This kenny pickett regime Era tenure, whatever, uh, can he find some new life and spark the bears?
Also saw the lions trade their titan tj hockinson to the vikings So another target for kirk cousins and this was really about money The lions didn't feel like they were gonna be able to pay him what he wanted on the free agent markets They wanted to get something for him in return and then the falcons trading away the suspended calvin ridley to the jaguar So when he returns to the nfl, he will be in jacksonville Wow, there were other moves too, but those are the ones that resonated made some headlines So we'll see how they play out in week nine really quickly producer j homefield home court home ice advantage. Where is it? What's one place? Buffalo build mafia. Yes for sure. I would say arrowhead stadium and also go with oracle or the old oracle Yes, now the chase center where the warriors play. We'll pick this up tomorrow. Enjoy your wednesday survive your wednesday It's after hours with amie lawrence cbs sports radio BOOM
