  • Let's get into the fun off the top.

  • We're gonna do it the way we can Onley do it on this show.

  • And that's with the blitz field.

  • You got a little warmed up, but what we're gonna do here is we're gonna throw 60 seconds on the clock and let you go with all of your hot takes.

  • Are you ready?

  • I'm ready.

  • And away he go.

  • 60 seconds.

  • Take it.

  • Feels all right.

  • So we're all talking about the incredible win for the Rams yesterday.

  • Spearheaded by a dominant defense.

  • Jalen Ramsey, Aaron Donald amongst the top players on that group.

  • And the quarterback was a carousel yesterday for them Between John Wall for starting getting her early and Jared Goff filling in e wanna give credit where it's due, though, because a few years ago the Rams made a decision to go all in on a core players Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, Jared Goff, Robert Woods, Cooper Cups, uh, Cooper Cups of the world Andrew Whitworth.

  • All guys paint at or near the top of the market of their respective positions.

  • They put a huge premium on scouting and developing GM less need has made a ton of great pics around the margins, not first round picks because the last first round pick, the Rams, had Jared Goff.

  • Jared Goff was the last player this election in the first round.

  • Less need his scouting staff.

  • No surprise.

  • Someone like Brad Holmes.

  • Getting GM interviews deserve a ton of credit for finding a way to build this roster.

  • Not with the obvious resource is, but rather late round picks.

  • The waiver wire, mid round picks.

  • Awesome job by the Rams scouting party.

  • Let's quickly dive into that mike.

  • I mean, I thought it was one of the most surprising outcomes yesterday.

  • Not that the Rams beat Seattle, but that they beat Seattle the way they did.

  • I mean, were you watching it?

  • A little surprise.

  • Uh, not overly.

  • This has always been a weird division.

  • I think Mina Kimes, who does a great job for us and is a rabbit Seahawks fan, has always said anyone in this division could beat anyone else on any given day.

  • But you also know there's an added level of violence, and I'd say this.

  • What we all see triggered on the Rams defensive side of the ball comes from Aaron Donald when you've got one force that could command so much respect.

  • We've seen the Leonard Floyd with World be able to enjoy a rebirth of the spot because now you know you're never gonna be the one that everyone's got their sights on.

  • All eyes will be on Aaron Donald and his health moving forward because that Rams defense looked absolutely unbelievable.

  • Mike, you ready to get in on the fun?

  • I am ready to get on.

  • That's why 60 seconds on the clock, Mike Golden Juniors blitz away.

  • He go now.

  • Obviously, everyone is gonna be focused on the end of the wild card last night on Tom Brady.

  • Big night for him, statistically in his first playoff game out of a Patriots uniform and all the things narrative.

  • Why does that mean?

  • But I want to take the focus up front because last year old line Twitter and the people that know would tell you that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had one of the more underrated front groups in the entire league on their offensive line this year.

  • In this playoff game, they came into focus because of some comments from Washington football team D N Chase Young Chase Young, who said, I want Tom Brady coming off the field after their win against the Eagles.

  • Chase Young, the number two overall pick on a D line full of topics and instead Ali Mar Pit, Donovan Smith, Ryan Jenson, Alex Kappa and the rookie himself.

  • Tristan Works stepped up last night to be dominant, not only keeping their quarterback clean against the host of first rounders.

  • I understand the three sacks were there, but sacks are complicated stat.

  • To judge all of this offense, we saw a wall of humanity move others, and I think I, like many others, grew to appreciate what Tristan works, especially as a rookie was able to do protecting the future Hall of Famer Tom Brady worth noting also, by the way, that it's not like Brady was just getting rid of the ball dink and dunk style.

  • I mean, he had time to go down the field with the whole way field.

  • I didn't see that coming.

  • I mean, part of the reason I thought it could be a competitive game was I thought that the Washington football team could get after Tom and make him uncomfortable instead, that didn't happen and Washington had a surprising offensive night.

  • Yeah, Taylor Heinicke story that is right.

  • Like a year ago.

  • This time the dude is I don't even know.

  • Do they have training camps in the XFL?

  • Probably.

  • Right.

  • Like the guys getting fit in for pads.

  • You wash your own jersey there.

  • He's the backup quarterback for the ST Louis battle logs.

  • He spent most of this fall studying to finish off his degree at Old Dominion.

  • So I always say that sports are a metaphor for life.

  • And last night was a good example.

  • If you're ever feeling like you want to give up, but you still have a dream, remind yourself if that dream is worth chasing, you will not give up.

  • Cool story there.

  • And the bucks.

  • Congratulations on advancing divisional round for the first time in quite some time.

  • All right, I'd like to get in on the blitz fund.

  • So mostly because my last name sounds coolest with it fits.

  • Blitz.

  • Alright.

  • Put 60 seconds on the clock.

  • You're welcome, America.

  • And the way I go, all right?

  • One of my objectives and this might be impossible in social media is to get everybody at some point to learn to listen without wanting to necessarily debate.

  • I think that's more important than ever.

  • When it comes to analytics, everybody is jumping on it without even understanding at times what it means.

  • Let's understand that sometimes the football games a little like a choose your own adventure book.

  • When I was a kid, turn to Page 32.

  • If you're gonna go right here, we have to understand that not everything plays out in the game the same way.

  • Just because the Colts elected not to kick a field goal at the end doesn't mean that the rest of the game would have turned out the same way.

  • So it's unfair to say that that one decision is the reason they lost by three points.

  • We have to acknowledge that strategy changes based on every single decision that's made that being said, what's wrong with listening to the analytics and trying to understand why it's happening?

  • I'll throw myself to the bus.

  • I've text Mike and other friends several times and said, I don't understand why we're not going forward or why we're punting.

  • But what we could all afford to do is shut up and listen to people long enough to get a better understanding of analytics.

  • In every particular scenario, I feel better than I got that off my chest.
