His dumb producer, Hot Take Hickey. Coming up, hour 20 from now, had the game-winning touchdown for the Minnesota Vikings, friend of show KJ Osbourne will stop by, and then at 8.40 p.m. Eastern, 5.40 p.m. Pacific, we will catch up with the head football coach at Kansas State, Chris Kleiman, as their team had a huge victory. They lost to Tulsa, then they bounced back as he's now four years on to the job, and he's taken three out of four matchups against Oklahoma at the time, ranked six in the country, so we'll catch up with coach coming up in hour number three of our radio program. I'm going to start today's show doing something that makes me want to puke, but I actually have to give praise to the drama Dallas Cowboys, and I may need to wash my mouth out with soap when I say this, because I'll feel disgusting after I say it, I've actually been impressed with the Cowboys the last two games. Without Dak Prescott, to beat the Cincinnati Bengals is impressive, and then I know the Giants are 2-0, I don't think the Giants are as great as what their record said they were, but that was an even matchup, because you have Cooper Rush as a starting quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys, and the Dallas Cowboys were just a better team. Now, it wasn't pretty, it was not this great victory in terms of, wow, they played a perfect game, but when you're without your starting quarterback, and you are then a team that has back-to-back victories, that is a level of impressive play by the Dallas Cowboys, and it was not this pretty victory, C.D. Lamb dropped early, then found a way to bounce back and make a sick grab, the defense is a really damn good defense, and the run game, which it's weird because we clown Jerry Jones so much before the year saying this team still needs to run through Ezekiel Elliott, talking about when Dak Prescott was on the field, you needed that run game to really take that baton and run with it, and not only did you get Tony Pollard going for 105 yards, you get Ezekiel Elliott getting 73 yards, and he set a tome in that second half, and he also had a rushing touchdown as well, and Cooper Rush did his job.
He managed the game, that's what he did, he didn't make a mistake, he was 21-31, 215 yards and a score. So what the Cowboys have done the last two games, and I love piling on the Cowboys, I love eviscerating the drama Dallas Cowboys, and yes, it pains me to say this, the Cowboys the last two weeks have salvaged their season. Now I'm not gonna sit here and tell you this Dallas team is great, I'm not gonna sit here and tell you that this Dallas team is even really damn good. I just think this is a team that some weeks are gonna look like a playoff team, and then some weeks against better competition, they're gonna take a step back. I don't believe in this team long term, the defense I do like, and I think defense has done a good job the last two years under Dan Quinn, you saw Diggs get the big interception late, Michael Parsons is an absolute stud, but offensively I just don't trust, even when you have Dak, the identity of this offense. Week in and week out, I'm not a big believer that Ezekiel Elliott is a great running back anymore, CD Lam, it seems like they need another wide receiver that can assist if he's gonna be your one wide receiver with no more Amari Cooper there. There's times where CD Lam looks like an absolute stud, then there's some times where he looks more like a number two wide receiver.
Do I think he has upside to have a really good career, yeah, and we'll see what happens when Michael Gallup eventually gets back into the fold, recover from his injury because he's underrated, but CD Lam, in the first year where he has to really take the baton and run with it, he's got to show me a little bit more consistently. But this is a Dallas Cowboys team that in a week NFC, I guess you could say they'll have an opportunity to make the playoffs, where after week one, when you lose that game to Tampa Bay for the second year in a row and then you lose your quarterback Dak Prescott and we still don't know when Dak's coming back. Maybe it's next week, maybe it's two weeks from now. The original timeline was six to eight weeks and then Jerry Jones does what Jerry Jones does best, make you confused, stir up a bunch of drama, start a quarterback controversy, which I don't really think there is one, but you go through all this stuff with Jerry Jones and it's expected, I'm not surprised by any of it, and you sit here and you look at Dallas and you say, all right, yeah, their season was probably cooked, I buried them. After week one, I thought their season was done, so I thought it was finito, I thought it was over, I thought it was finished, but they found a way with their backs up against the wall and it's all about timing. You get the Bengals, Bengals lose week one, their offensive line is in shambles, they took advantage of it. Then this Giants team, the Giants, there was no way they were going to win three games in a row to start off the season.
I like Dayball, I like Shane, Daniel Jones is not a good quarterback in this league, Saquon Barkley shows that he still has that acceleration and hopefully he could stay healthy. The Giants wide receivers are nothing to celebrate and defensively, they have their ups and downs. So it was going to be tough and the Giants starting off 2-0 is a heck of an accomplishment. And I know you come back against Tennessee, you beat the Panthers, but the odds of the Giants going back to back to back victories to start off the year weren't great, even though last night was a close game. So for Dallas, yes, you never want to see Dak get hurt and we'll see when he comes back, but they took advantage of an opportunity and Cooper Rush has as well and this team has rallied together when everyone was trashing the Cowboys, including yours truly, I was leading the charge after week one. So last night, here's the best way how to say it, the Cowboys got you intrigued again. Not that I think they're a great team, they won't be in the Super Bowl, they won't be in an NFC title game. I would still be surprised that they're playing on divisional weekend.
But the Cowboys, we thought their season was done zone, a lot of Cowboys fans did as well. When you go to Cooper Rush and it's wild, because going back to last year when Cooper Rush got a start, he's 3-0 as a starting quarterback. And then this week you'll probably go to 3-1. I know it's a week to week league, it's tough to predict, but yeah, you're probably going to go to 3-1 this week when you go up against Carson Wentz and the commanders because that offensive line's horrible, and I can see Michael Parsons and company just harassing Carson Wentz all day. So in a weird way, and I don't know if Dak's going to be back or not, I'd be surprised at this point if he is, but you get to 3-1, then I think you come back down to earth a little bit, you get the Rams and the Eagles back to back weeks, you probably lose both those, and you sit at 3-3, then you play the Lions and the Bears, you should win both those games.
I like probably the Packers and Minnesota better since both those games are on the road. So that's what it's going to be with this Cowboys team. I went into this season thinking the Cowboys would make the playoffs, I thought that's all that would happen, that was their apex, they are nowhere close to being a Super Bowl contender, they're nowhere close to winning multiple playoff games in my opinion, but I do respect, even though it kills me to praise that football team, I do respect the way that they have rallied together the last two weeks. And I know everyone loves to kill Mike McCarthy, and it's not always pretty, and everyone loves to kill the coach, coach got to get some credit for what has happened the last two weeks. Yeah, on 3rd and 1 last night, I don't know what they're doing throwing the football, just run the ball when your two backs were having good games, and don't make Cooper Rush go make a big throw. So there's some things that when it happens, Mike McCarthy, the year of 2022, you scratch your head, you say, what the bleep? But who would have thought that the Dallas Cowboys would have won these last two games without Dak Prescott?
So yeah, I don't like to admit it, I feel wrong right now, I want to wash my mouth out with soap, P.U., yuck, disgusting. The Cowboys have kind of sucked you back in the last two weeks, where the idea of them getting to the playoffs is not crazy as it was when everyone, including yours, truly thought this season was over, when Dak was out, they lose to the Buccaneers, you're playing the Bengals, who would have thought they would have won that game? They did, and they followed up with a very nice victory up against the Giants. I do think it's going to be a turbulent season, I do think there's going to be some weeks where you go, like how we're saying today, all right, Dallas is back in it, then there's going to be some weeks where you go, all right, they're not that good of a team. But that's the reality of what the Cowboys are. They're a good enough roster to finish above.500, but they're not a good enough roster with the way that they're assembled to win a Super Bowl. I don't love Dak.
Now I'm not going to sit here and tell you Cooper Rush should be the starting quarterback the rest of the year, because that would be Jack Assery. Their offensive line still has problems, I still don't know what I'm going to get week in and week out from Ezekiel Elliott at this stage of his career. And defensively, they've done a nice job, where for years we used to bitch about the Cowboys defense and how inept it was, the last two years under Dan Quinn, who probably will get another head coaching job again, Dan Quinn has done a nice job with his defense and they have some playmakers on that defense. So that's where I'm at with the Cowboys right now. Can they make the playoffs? Yes.
Do I look at them as a threat? Absolutely not. How about you? 855-212-4CBS, 855-212-4227, Hickey, your reaction on what the Cowboys have displayed to you the last two weeks, beating the Bengals and also the Giants? They've saved their season. I was with them, I wrote them off. The Buccaneers game was ugly, Dak goes down.
You see the timeline, six to eight weeks, he was two months. No way they'll be able to stay afloat. And even in a bad NFC play well enough to be realistically in the playoff picture come December and January, and to Cooper Rush's credit, played well enough to help beat the Bengals in the game. I thought it was going to be a blowout in Cincinnati's favor. You come back and beat a Giants team that's, like I said, they're not a very good team.
Their tuna record is not indicative of how truly bad they are. But now you're looking at whether Dak returns this week against the commanders, I mean next week against the Rams, you have given yourself a margin of error to where you still should now be back in the playoff picture and probably more than not should be a playoff team come the end of the year. Yeah, because whenever Dak was going to come back, the thought was, okay, they were going to drop more games than games they would have actually won. Now at this rate with Dak standing on the sidelines last night, you kind of look, okay, if it's not this week, it's probably the week after that.
Now you have some tough opponents upcoming after the commanders, the commanders stink, in the Rams and the Philadelphia Eagles. So I'll be curious when they do implement Dak Prescott back, but then you get into this Jerry Jones stuff too. He started a quarterback controversy last week.
This is not the radio guy. Let's just drum up some controversy and stir up some controversy for clicks and for ratings like all you people think that's what we actually do. Jerry Jones was the one that said he would love to have a quarterback competition. He'd love to have a quarterback controversy because that means Cooper Rush would be playing well. I just don't see how when Dak is ready to go, how they're going to tell Dak and McCarthy basically said this, but I don't see how they're going to say, Oh yeah, Dak, you're ready, but we're going to give you another week.
I will say this. I think Cooper Rush's play has bought patience. Like I wouldn't, would you play Dak this week against the commanders? Is he healthy? If he tells me I'm a hundred percent and the doctors say he is cleared to play, then yeah, I would.
It's not even a, it's not even a thought to me. And this commander's defense has regressed. They've been brutal last two seasons ever since winning that NFC East and you got to, that's a divisional game. So if Dak's ready to go, I'm throwing them in there, but you know what's going to happen? Then they'll lose that game.
And then I can hear it now. Skip Bayless, time to play Cooper Rush for the rest of the season. I'm doubting Dak coming up next on whatever that show's called.
What is it? No, it's not first take. That's on ESPN, undisputed. I can hear it now by you're telling me if Dak is healthy and ready to go this week, you say, hey, it's another week. Here's what I would say. It's a tough spot to put your quarterback in. If he's healthy, you tell him to sit another week, they get the win, they're three and one and then you throw them to Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey in LA. I would say, take your time.
I want to make sure you are a hundred percent healthy. So I will wait one more week, be a little more patient because we're not that desperate to need you back and then bring it back when we really need you, which is going to be week five against the Rams. Well, also if he's ready to go and then you still fear a little bit about the injury, you could just run the team the way that Jerry Jones wants to run it. Handing off to Zeke, handing off to Zeke, handing off to Zeke, handing off to Zeke.
That's what they could do. So where's your belief level with the Cowboys? I'm not telling you mine is high.
I'm not telling you. I think the Cowboys are a Super Bowl contender. All I'm saying is they've sucked me back into thinking in the last two weeks that this is a team that can make the playoffs.
Cause after week one, it looked like it was over and the fat lady was singing. I don't think they're ever going to be a Super Bowl contender this year. I don't think they're ever going to be a great team this year, but what we've seen through the first three weeks of the season is what the Cowboys are going to do. Against the better teams, they're going to disappoint. They'll find a way to get a game that they probably shouldn't have won, like the Cincinnati game. And then against a team like the Giants, that's young, inexperienced, new coach, they'll find a way to get the job done. There'll be some weeks where you're praising the Cowboys. There'll be a lot of weeks where you're ripping the Cowboys. That's what's going to be the seesaw ride this year for the Dallas Cowboys. We'll take a break.

You're listening to the Zach Gelb show. So Deion Sanders is in the news actually. The head football coach at Jackson State, HBCU has done a really good job there.
His son, also Deion trying to make a case that his son should be a Heisman Trophy candidate. He's a quarterback at Jackson State and is putting up some pretty big time numbers. But we've seen this through the last year or two ever since he's become the coach at Jackson State and has done a good job. His name has been linked to Power Five Jobs. And you wonder, is he going to leave Jackson State to go take a Power Five job?
When Nebraska opened up, people have thrown out the name. And most recently with Georgia Tech, especially with that being in Atlanta, there was an actual report that they could be interested in him. And that's a name to watch and that's a name to monitor. I don't know if he's going to go or not. If you're a school like Georgia Tech, absolutely, you should want him. If you're a school like Nebraska, absolutely, you should want him. And it was Brian Jones who right when the Nebraska job opened up, he said they need to go outside the box. If you want to get Nebraska back. And he was someone that suggested that, yeah, Deion Sanders would work, Coach Prime would work or could put him in a better chance to succeed than what they've recently had at Nebraska.
Now there's going to be more jobs there to open up. Like there's no doubt in my mind, Auburn is going to open up. Like Brian Harsin has only been there for two full seasons. Last year, the entire offseason, I know it's more complicated than just simply football wins there or the lack of it, but the last year there was talks about him getting canned to the offseason. And I'm like, wait, how long was Brian Harsin there? I remember when he joined us at Boise State, the moment when the season got suspended originally in the Mountain West. And I go, he's only been there for a year at Auburn? Feels like he's been at Auburn, Brian Harsin, for like three or four years.
But it did not help that they got embarrassed against Penn State, again, the hickey was at. What was that, their orange out, Ryan? The orange out. The orange out down south at Auburn. So that job's going to open up.
And I would, if you asked me those three jobs, and there will be more that will open up clearly. If I'm Deion Sanders, would you rather have Auburn, Georgia Tech or Nebraska? I guess if you're Deion Sanders, you'd want to go to Auburn. Now, I know Georgia Tech, ACC, not the best conference in the world. Nebraska, you're in the Big Ten. The players right now in the Big Ten are Ohio State and Michigan. Penn State's got a good young roster, we'll see what they are in a few years. We'll see what Mel Tucker will continue to do at Michigan State.
But if I'm Coach Prime, and I live to be the star of the show on the biggest stage, no conference is better than the SEC. And for Auburn to really have success again, and consistently have success, you got to go improve that recruiting a little bit. And you know this about Deion Sanders. Deion Sanders, anywhere he will go, in reason, will improve recruiting.
Because Deion Sanders captivates a room, everyone knows who he is. And then also, if you go to a bigger school, we've seen already, what's true, what isn't, from what you read, who knows, some of the recruits is able to get to Jackson State. But if you give him more resources, through NIL and boosters and all that stuff, you look at what he could do at a big time university, I would be intrigued. Now if he wants to stay at Jackson State, I have no problem. If he wants to stay as a head coach there, and I get it, it means a lot to him, HBCU, and maybe he wants to stay with his son and ride this side, I think his son's a sophomore.
Now his son could always transfer now, you know that, then that's fine with me. But if I'm a power five school, let's say like a Georgia Tech who's irrelevant, like a Nebraska who hasn't been good in a long time and is living off the past, or Auburn who got rid of a good coach in Gus Malzahn, who did a nice job consistently beating Alabama, and I know that's an impatient fan base, why not? How many times we see these group of five coaches that get jobs, some work, some don't. Deion Sanders would bring excitement to your program, now if he doesn't win, then ultimately it will turn out like the other coaches, where you get rid of him. But if I'm a power five school, I would have no problem giving Deion Sanders that shot to be a power five head coach, but the question is, does he want it? And that, I don't know, right? For a while, maybe you thought he would end back up at Florida State, it doesn't look like Mike Norvell would start there off too, who was on the hot seat this season is going to get fired.
So you look around and you see the lay of the land. The good part for Deion is he doesn't have to take the job, he doesn't need the job. But if he wants the job, then I would have zero hesitation if I'm one of these schools that have been in a rough spot in the power five for a while, like a Nebraska, like a Georgia Tech, or if you're a school like Auburn, who needs a little bit more life. The level of competition so high in the SEC, you got to steal some recruits, yeah. I would have zero problem interviewing Deion Sanders, and then if he impresses you and you go through the process, giving him the job.
How about you there, Ryan? That's the big thing to me, I just don't know if he wants to take that next step to the power five because of how unique and special and important Jackson State is to him. Especially too, when you look at some of the schools, it's tough because the pressure is so high that you don't have a lot of time to build a program and have success. For Auburn, for example, they do fire inevitably Brian Harsin. I mean, honestly, he may have two years. Yeah, but here's the thing, that would be met, I would imagine, it's just me guessing, if you hired Deion Sanders in most spots, it would be met with a positive reaction. So a guy like Brian Harsin, when they hired him, and I know that people that are in that athletic department and boosters, you read the story, we're trying to get Gus Malzahn out for a while, you didn't really improve. That wasn't a hire that was really positive, so when you have such an intense, passionate fan base, and you make a hire that's like a higher, then the patient wears even more thin than what it currently is. I do think Deion would be a positive hire though, and an exciting hire. I know you don't win just on an introductory press conference, but you're telling me after that press conference, not everyone that's associated with the school will be like, yeah, that's our guy, he's gonna bring us back to be in this big time program again. Well that's like you said, there'll be excitement until the ball kicks off into September, and if they're one and three to start- Sure, but I'll buy him a little bit extra time because he has Deion Sanders. You would think, but again, like you mentioned before, Gus Malzahn was three and five against Alabama next season, that's a great record. That's a great record, they ran him out of town. Let's also be clear, Auburn is different than Nebraska and Georgia Tech. Yes, especially Georgia Tech.
Get all the patience in the world, okay? If Deion Sanders wants to go there, you should kiss the floor, and you should look up and say thank you, thank you, we have our savior here potentially. Agreed. That is what you should do if Deion Sanders wants to go to Georgia Tech. And if you gave Jeff Collins what, four years?
I think it was. Jeff got three like- Well, three plus. Yeah, three plus. If you give Jeff Collins three plus years, Deion Sanders at least gets five or six, just for starters, especially when you're bringing a new AD as well.
Nebraska, a little bit more pressure. I know Scott Frost was one of their own, but you gave him a bunch of years. And then Auburn's the one where, yes, there is an expedited process, but I would think if you're bringing in Deion Sanders, you got to at least give him, I'm not talking about the total contract, but until you think about moving on, if it doesn't work, at least three full seasons.
That's the way that I would operate it. I actually hope he takes a power five job. I think it would be fun to see. And if he's going to get a power five job, I don't want to go to Georgia Tech. I don't even want to go to Nebraska. Auburn is the one, assuming that opens up out of the potential jobs that have already opened up or that will open up by the end of the season. Auburn's the one that kind of makes me say, yeah, I would love to see. Imagine Deion Sanders coaching up against Nick Saban. Deion Sanders up against Kirby Smart. I would love to see Deion Sanders just eviscerate Jimbo Fisher in a press conference.
That'd be fun. Deion Sanders, if you could get him in the SEC, I would be on board with that, but I don't know if he wants to leave Jackson State with how important that school is to him. And that's going to be the question. But yeah, if I'm a school, a power five school, and I've been struggling and Deion Sanders wants to be my coach, I'd be all in. I just don't know if he wants to leave Jackson State and if he wants to take that next step into a power five job. And that's the great unknown because we're just accustomed to it. And I guess the situation is a little bit different, but how many times you hear a coach say this is my dream school, this is where I always want to be, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah.
And they're interviewing all throughout that process and they're right out the door. For Deion, I'm not going to say there's no interest. We've heard the rumors. We've heard the reports the last few years. But until he leaves, I just don't know if he actually will leave because this one is a little bit different than your typical and traditional up and coming head coach because of the career that Deion Sanders had before he even thought about being a head coach at Jackson State. It is the Zach Gelb show on CBS Sports Radio. Would you want to see Deion Sanders coaching in the power five next year, eight, five, five, two, one, two for CBS. Take a break.
When we come on back to quarterbacks that there was a little optimism about before the year started that I don't see much hope for.

Listen and subscribe to Beyond Black History Month on the Odyssey app or wherever you get at Auburn. We know that Nebraska's already opened since they fired Scott Frost. Georgia Tech just fired one Jeff Collins.
I looked at the odds during the break and I saw that this was released by I believe Barrett Salih who had the tweet out earlier. Here are the the six, seven, it's like more like ten jobs let's just say. They have the highest odds to open up. Colorado at two to one. Auburn like we've been talking about nine to four. How about this one?
Three to one Stanford? I'm kind of surprised by that. Really? Yeah that's...
I would be stunned if David Shaw is fired after this. Yes. South Florida, I would be surprised if Kenny Amato Lolo is out at Navy. Agreed.
Missouri, Northwestern. Do you think Pat Fitzgerald's in the hot seat? No. Yeah I don't think he would be fired either and I feel like Pat Fitzgerald's in a spot where even if you don't have great performances there's like a complacency because of what they did a few years ago and this guy turned down NFL opportunities and interviews to stay at Northwestern. Right they're not yeah they're not firing him.
Here's what I also don't get. 14 to 1. Sarca, Texas. Arch Manning is coming next year. So even if Quinn Ewers does not pan out to be the Quinn Ewers that we thought he was gonna be, you're giving Sarca at least next season because you don't want to risk losing Arch Manning. Agreed. Jimbo Fisher at A&M 20 to 1. That'd be great at the unsanitary place Jimbo Fisher. Especially with all and you know they have all the NIL money in the world. I was just gonna say. But with his recruiting and those resources.
I guess is the way to say it is recruiting charm and those resources. Oh that would be fun but I don't think Jimbo Fisher's getting fired after this year. Not that the Arkansas win saved him. It saved what could have been a disastrous season. Yes Miami as well it's a good point.
This could have gotten very ugly. Like I don't think Jimbo Fisher is a great coach anymore. He won a national championship at Florida State but he's been a lot of talk at A&M and he really hasn't backed it up other than that 2020 season when they were 9 and 1. And I know his first year he was solid 9 and 4 but 9 and 4, 8 and 5, 9 and 1, 8 and 4, 3 and 1 to start off this season. It's not like he's been this great coach when you look at Jimbo Fisher but I don't think he's in danger of getting fired now when this season comes to a close.
And I'll give you two more on here. Louisville it's got Satterfield 22 to 1 and then how about this one? I think this would be more retire. I don't think they'll ever fire this guy. I think it'd be more so retirement.
They'll mutually agree to part ways. I'm not saying that has a possibility at the end of this year but North Carolina with Mac Brown is at 25 to 1. Those jobs I don't want to see Deion Sanders at Colorado. South Florida it's Ivan Power 5. Missouri no thanks. SEC? Yeah but I don't want to go to Missouri. Auburn, Missouri.
It's not tomato, tomato. There is a big difference there. Texas isn't gonna open up. Texas A&M is like if that's the the coaches that are on the hot seat it would kind of be Auburn or bus for me right?
I am very intrigued. I'm actually leaning towards Georgia Tech. I want to see another program kind of rise up.
But that program stinks. He's a hero in Atlanta that's a recruiting hotbed there so you can get a lot of talent stay close to home. I think it'd be good for the sport of college football for Georgia Tech to make a comeback.
Well here's also the thing you think about as well. We don't know what the future of the ACC is gonna be. We don't know how Deion's we don't know what the future college football is gonna be but you know the SEC and the Big Ten extremely healthy right now. They're not going anywhere. If Notre Dame goes to the Big Ten and doesn't elect to go full-time in the ACC then does Clemson maybe follow somewhere else? Does Miami leave? Yeah Florida State do they like it just things that I think about I wonder if that impacts and I get what you're saying about Atlanta but I wonder if that impacts maybe the decision to not go to a school that isn't in the SEC or the Big Ten. Well if you're Deion Sanders and you think of yourself the way Deion Sanders thinks of himself would you think that wherever he goes yeah that school be included in some sort of yeah it's fair conference realignment yeah that's fair and also we don't know when that big shift is gonna happen we're starting to see it I don't want to say slowly because those those teams are are not just regular teams when you get into USC you get into Texas you get into Oklahoma still the brand of a of a UCLA so those are big moves but you don't know if the big shifts gonna happen a year three years four years five years a decade from now we still don't know what's going to be the case so if you could pick one job it'd be Georgia Tech for Deion Sanders yes the more thing about the more I like it a lot okay I'm in on Auburn eight five five two one two four CBS eight five five two one two forty two twenty seven let's go to Alex in Alaska next up on the Zach Gil show Alex what he got man I would love to see Deion go to Auburn too I think that he would make a splash and he's going to shock all of those coaches and I mean it really I'm kind of torn I'm torn because it's like we're talking about prime time here so wherever he goes it's gonna be prime time yeah it's obviously it's obviously gonna be a show there's no doubt about that it's gonna be a spectacle and eventually you're gonna have to back it up with wins like that's what it comes down to at any job but the higher absolutely that would be a higher that I think the majority of people not all but the majority of people if you go to a school like Auburn is trying to find the next great thing Georgia Tech which is as a football program in a brutal state you look at Nebraska those fans are just dying to win you could easily talk me into Deion Sanders Wow like that's that's something that is extremely positive and something that would be met with the excitement initially but like Hickey was saying you then eventually have to win and I think he can win in the power five I don't know to what extent but do I think he could win games Deion Sanders absolutely you make the right hires with NIL with him and he wants to do it I think it could be super successful I do but that excitement and that positivity if you get three years into a job and teams like five and seven six wins and then the apex is seven yeah it grows I guess a little bit tiresome because if then we'll be treated like any other coach but I'm on board like do you want to see that happen Hickey I want to see him in the power five next year same I'm intrigued sure you can see what he is okay real quickly there's two quarterbacks one you were very optimistic about heading into this season the other I had no belief level in heading into this year are you now willing to revise your take on Baker Mayfield through what you've seen to the first three games of the season I know it's a new system I know he got there late but you're seeing a common thread here Baker and Cleveland had a bad relationship with Odell Beckham now some of that was Odell some of that was Baker Baker now in Carolina is not getting that football enough to DJ Moore and DJ Moore could be a top 10 wide receiver in the league they got to get in the football it doesn't they got to get in the football more like no pun intended you got to get DJ Moore the football more and it's concerning to me how he hasn't been a bigger part of this offense with how talented he is I know you get your big toy back and Christian McCaffrey McCaffrey's been good so far but what could make that offense actually hum is McCaffrey and Moore together and so far for whatever the reasons are Baker's just not gonna have football to DJ Moore enough but I'm starting to think not that Baker's bad and I never thought Baker was this great quarterback but I'm starting to wonder Baker could even be good in the NFL anymore and that was the tricky part with what you saw in 2020 and then what transpired in 2021 was that regression because of the injury or was that regression because that's who really Baker Mayfield is and through the first three games of the season Baker got off to a slow start against Jacoby Bersepp before making that big throw to Robbie Anderson Baker Mayfield lost to the Giants like those are not the two greatest teams in the world and then even if in their win up against the Saints the story wasn't Baker Mayfield you had a defensive score there in that game defense played well special teams did its job and McCaffrey played fine so Baker hasn't shown me a lot so far through the first three games of the season and it's starting to make me think yeah it's looking like Baker's 2021 regression even though I thought it was probably more likely injury probably more so just a reality of what Baker Mayfield is I'm not writing him off completely but he's not a top five quarterback in the NFC like you were saying before the season holding out hope that'll turn it around but yes they're dubbing him the fifth best court in the NFC that was you not me just to be I may have to revise my rankings after three weeks and I respect Jamis Winston in terms of that he's playing with multiple fractures in his back but what you saw from Jamis Winston against the Bucks and what you barely saw up against the Carolina Panthers Jamis Winston we all try to hope that he's gonna be able to cut out the turnovers and we're optimistic because it was fun when he was having those 30 touchdowns Alena league in passing yards but those interceptions are just damaging and you got talent there I know Kamara came back last week a lobby's been really good and nine receptions 147 yards you got Michael Thomas Jarvis Landry trick on Smith had a good game like you got talent there and for them to be one and two hmm Jamis Winston and they're one when they had to come from behind against the Atlanta Falcons to be one and two and you got now you're going to London and you're gonna play the Vikings I like the Vikings this week the only thing that concerns me is that flight whenever you go to London have one of these games you just never know which way it's gonna play out because you don't know how the flights could impact everyone but I would pick the Vikings right now to beat the Saints so I'm out I've been out on Jamis Winston but now like I'm really out on Jamis Winston and I don't see how that team's gonna make the playoffs this year even in a week NFC right same one champagne was not coming back I couldn't trust Jamis Winston you've seen it so far and these it could get ugly quick like they're one and two here's their schedule Vikings Seahawks bangles Cardinals Raiders Ravens Steelers Rams 49ers bucks Falcons Browns Eagles Panthers it's not the worst schedule in the world but it's not an easy schedule I think there's to be a lot more turnovers from Jamis Winston looking for stories about the black community and you don't want to wait until oh I
