Mike show over the bulldogs welcome back. I'm feeling well enough to be here thank you I -- you admire my. Pride and bravery and courage I did you -- very doubtful. C'mon I really like today and yesterday smear him and the goat is the end Greg bout is on and today. Eleven of some kind of sickness. Would you call it a cold. You technicals or bronchitis technique bronchitis stacked technically they. You know finger quotes and doctors know. Bulldogs your all right all good you were a little bit of a mess last week. To say that the two strong. Strong couple weeks ago I was sick I missed today I thought it was going to be down for awhile and it dotted I blew right through it and now than. Since he started running last week what you write there was -- -- were I thought it was in sick but not happen all that soup I'm all good man and a health my health. Once upon a time or update I was putting you down for the everyday Italian wedding soup now who's laughing. -- he's organ in Pittsburgh. -- shots is -- -- now from football outsiders dot com how are you feeling there. Aaron aren't you are right god it's going around to look out. Yeah not figure out. Have you done any radio interviews yet or even asked about the draft a lot dispute that I'm not -- though. Is it our right if you wanna ask you gonna grab your ready figures we are I'm not. Draft expert it's actually the main things that. It's actually the main thing that I don't pay much attention to a lot of other people can't cover that -- will be busy covering everything else. Games and and stuff yeah well not really an expert on the kept coming out like that very well well here's why I I go destruction though. I don't know a month ago maybe two months ago. Something happened and for summaries and on Twitter you refer to Robert Griffin in Chan -- together number that. Yeah the idea being that Ankiel is and that's exactly. So mobile quarterbacks. You know the whole pistol saying. -- -- talent he's actually pretty accurate. And it would be an interesting. Perry and. Well that's what I'm thinking about Griffin may win the Heisman Trophy are predicting well. And at an -- college football you're you say other people focus on that more than you do give an opinion. About you know what this your opinion about whether the bill should be in the market. For quarterback. Yeah I mean I think that if the right quarterback there yes. All right well there's fact and up. There it is now because we know why they're in they're not mean this is not usually the sort of stuff that we automatically talk with you about it. That Meredith Fitzpatrick for that long relief they drafted a guy. This April even. And had to factor for as a starter for next year and let him go even after that if they wanted to do that -- mean it's not financially prohibitive for them do that the only guaranteed. Well then it's definitely I mean listen I don't you know think he. The spectacular quarterback -- look pretty good early in the year that seems to fade away. That's performances really declined. So certainly you've got a chance to -- young quarterback and there are some of the strapped. Errant shots -- -- OK you had referenced today or yesterday to the Packers. This'll be my word for maybe not yours their record being a little bit deceiving. At twelve and know that maybe they're not as good as twelve and no team should be let me not put any more words in your mouth. That's about right. I wrote a little bit today about sort of the difference between greatness and dominance. We think of the best teams in history we -- teams that are dominant. And Green Bay is really not in common. But -- what's great about that mr. consistency. Has never or it's very hard at least find -- it's been this consistently good. At the Packers the business here. But they're not number one in the league -- point differential they're not number one in the league and our staff. And you know I mean they came close to lose in this week. Strangely you know they're they're they're -- and going sixty however reasonable map because the last four games are not too tough. By their want to go into communal probably better than their odds of winning suitable. Because the hardest teams that they're gonna -- are going to be the team that they after the regular season over. Would be namely well. That's easy about San Francisco and world. Vote him. His New Orleans can score with a -- mean that I'd want watching the world ends in primetime a couple of times recently certainly watching Green Bay all year. I promise of drooling about the bottom. The different things Green Day new England and New Orleans is really wanted to create -- very similar teams the difference is that the Packers are just a little bit better on both sides of the ball the New England. And New England it just a little bit better on defense the war. Are we comfortable as a group here are we comfortable calling Aaron Rodgers the best quarterback in football. When when if I may just give a little more to this when Ryan Miller had a great Olympic Games. A lot of people started calling him the best goalie in the world and my objection that was there there has to be a certain period of time. Where are you are that it may be Rogers Super Bowl champ the year there having this year maybe that's long enough that you'd say he's certain at this level surpass Brady. If you'd say that -- just say that. All it's a reasonable argument to make. You know it it's all philosophical discussion. How long you think it kind need to establish himself at a certain level before you wanna say he's not the best. He's certainly in the top two. And he certainly having the best here anyone this year I mean Green -- is essentially a one dimensional. Throwing its executives and helium and yet. It's Jordy Nelson's a big part of that is an. Yet dirty not having great seasons having our numbers the best season per play at any wide receiver. In the last twenty years at least fifty pastor. Did you see bull by the -- made it when it looked like he had to land out of bounds he was in bounds late in the game yeah Africa has goes down as one of those second round picks with James Hardy. That when when there were -- -- receivers he's good the way that quarterback put the ball is incredible to watch in. You know it's funny like I'm worried and all kinds of a follow mood here and with the -- this bill season is just you know. Turn -- of the players. And the -- watched I -- imagine watching the world is in prime time watching Green -- the bar set really -- we're talking about. But -- -- like even when the bill will really don't they don't. I mean it's incredible. Home means yeah maybe not quite that good that they looked pretty good when they were going there I will say. That within. I went back and looked and we found a team that was both considered by our numbers to be better. And the only team the last twenty years that was more consistent -- Green Day through the first twelve games this season. And that he was the 200512. And no Indianapolis Colts. -- And the same kind of things were that about the -- that they had a better -- -- -- the meat Packers to. And yet what they found was eventually they -- a team that could slow pain amounting banning down somewhat. And the defense gave up just enough points and they lost to Pittsburgh. San Diego first during the regular season and that Pittsburgh during the -- So. People are talking about Aaron Rodgers can't be slow down that's not true. It's just that nobody's really done a good enough job of yet to win again. But it doesn't mean it can't happen because there's no player in history who can't be slowed down by a good defense. It doesn't mean it could be that make you have a bad game. But all the does have to do -- make have a good game about an excellent game and then just outscored Packers because the defense and playing well. And that is a reasonable chance of that happening. It's just less likely to happen during the regular season and more likely to happen during the playoffs. Because. This better competition because the best team that they have remaining in Chicago it should be but that's you know without considering Chicago and injuries Chicago and detonated by entry -- -- How -- by the way the -- five colts made the unfortunate mistake of missing a game winning field goal. And in that that Pittsburgh lost good. Yeah I mean -- that that they that they turn on the smallest to vaccinate this last game. There was a play where our running back and remember the name the rookie running back from Green Bay but the -- player the winning drive. He essentially fumbled the ball they didn't count as a fumble but he fumbled the ball country cottage they got the ball back. Imagine the giant pounced on that ball in the rest declared a fumble. Well don't get me started I mean that's how small that's how close. These things can be and so the idea that a difference between our beautiful and -- deep. And the fact is if you're looking at the upbeat upbeat ability of the Packers. Higher than the speed ability of you know posted at 2007 patriot and that he lost. So it's possible. That putt the package ranking the the touchdown Green Bay scored to go up by eight. Drivers touchdown they show the replay of driver and I sold them. The DB in the backcourt the end zone just melts them as Rogers is looking for over received just pushed him like. You know illegal contact maybe not interference yet what ever nothing driver then comes away and catches the ball and score a touchdown it. They'll just sold a lot like the mentioned it doesn't get matches -- -- -- It on a bouncer that's what they couldn't write and even. That was -- he wanted an idol. Think if I had a not enough time to look at it I think I could find at least two penalties and and and every NFL play. At least two and every and I think you probably are open. Ice can beat that I'm telling I think I could be good but illegal contact on every passing play in the NFL. To think five yards and contact -- Five yards to. Well that's why you're not an honest -- Hayes took place closer keep that even if it means you're gonna get lacked a few more times and defensive penalties. Because if you play close defense the -- of -- will be more planes we commit a penalty that is called there are plays we commit a penalty that is call. At least in the call this vehicle noticed it and I happened to that somebody who agreed I happening noticeably Greenwood who recently about this. And he's getting a lot of you right -- -- taking a lot of penalties that -- not of the if we play clothes will play good defense variety. And that -- imports. But he'll happily believer that if you play post defense you can take a few extra penalties I just don't think you want to be unnecessary -- this panel. The -- gonna set the record for stupid penalties. -- You'd think they're they're probably the most likely team to ruin the perfect season in the regular season and that's because he can go by The Who need it more theory. You know this is one of those things that's beyond numbers the numbers can't account for. But there's a pretty good chance we go into the final week of the season. Where Green Bay has is completely locked into the number one seed and Detroit have to win the playoffs. That Green Day. They put that -- a night. They could bake that the night game yes. A lot to see I want and everybody wants to go to see the sixteen and know what they're trying to go for sixteen -- -- I meet -- remember what happened with the patriots and an apple like it networks. -- on the other hand that you let this thing now where they try to put teams at the at. They try to put games. At the same time they have the same impact of the play out. So that would suggest that the Atlanta. Have to win to get -- Atlanta at the blues in order for Detroit to get in or something like that they would want to put Atlanta and toward the same time and neither one knows whether the other one. Yeah that's what soccer goes champions league is right now the yes thank you for your time is always started quickly and talk more bills schemes. Other how much about -- point maybe actually are thank you all right. -- -- shots.
