We're gonna talk more about super wolf 51 with our next guest he has a NFL analyst and staff writer for Sports Illustrated in the MM QB got SI dot com. A frequent guest on the show because he's such a good guess happy to have Andy Benoit on the line with a sandy it's John Murphy and Donald Jones thanks for joining us here today we really appreciate it. Never entered ever outward like being. A great job thanks in the U you do a great job as well let me get your quick thoughts and well we're just talking about and you'd you do not have all the same boat I don't believe any rate. I do not I would like what I'm not ready buyer would yell limited playing I'll probably be ready that they want the eight to ten years that would. Do you have thoughts on Terrell Owens how biggest snub that was a week ago that have been Terrell Owens and neo pro capital. Well I heard that you guys are saying an end players back and now and I've heard bad stories from guys who coached bill in Milan team that power understaffed coaching staff that had and and I. I I understand both sides of the argument I have no problem and not being in the hall of fame because I think he told that much off the table. As he put on the table when you save up three receiver every year no one would argue that bad. So imagine how much of a distraction he was how much she was taking off the table. That there are Smart football people make you legitimate cases saying yeah right you back good and it's not worth it he was a real problem. For every team he was off from what I've heard even that it did towards the end buffalo and Cincinnati goes didn't go great. He got the big out every unit Adam got rid of him before it was time to get rid of him. I gotta say and it just because we sides serfdom here at Buffy. Was a real problem here was he. A great loyal teammate everybody's back probably not and again on the outside look at him but. You I don't know how much of a distraction was there probably was he was. He was TO he was his own brand you know he brought that with him the last especially the last few steps of his at a brokerage. Terror out of degrade a good way to put it I would. I would doubt you on that junket you might be also looking amateur certainly close circle looking and then that someone in my position so that that's good to know that could be here I'd now like the. Go ahead I don't want to look at is going to too bogged down in this but I just look at you and you look at guys like. You know the Kobe Bryant to Michael Jordan's how many people listed those guys agree team is there's a lot of guys Americans stand Kobe Bryant. But he's going to be a first though all of Mae mine out in a crazy distracts him. But you know there are a lot of people that said he was a great team me and asked is because he wanted to win. You know T I just don't think it's fair to him. To say he should go and all of Spain because of anything that might happen in the locker room I just think he produced on a field and that's what counts. Yeah it charges Garnett and he. No no we're I hear that these are good discussion of one however I would give them that is. They're they're basketball their principal all basketball individual control it more football no matter how great you are you are dependent on the ten other guys around view. And I think if I think it's more not that bad though not a huge sport. Thanks for all the old Donald you'd app that you played the game had been the ultimate team sport. Andy Bedard joins us from SI dot com he's does and he does extensive. Film study including about the Buffalo Bills what I ask you about the bureau of recent posts came up just last week Andy about. NFL team by team offseason needs you went through all 32 for the Buffalo Bills you identified. Quarterback and you say pretty simply Tyrod Taylor is not the solution what have you seen on video that leads you to that conclusion. Well what what you were tailor it's something that no statistics to ever capture so you have the rollout is any whatever the advanced metrics stay on ever Vista has brought quarterback he numbers. They're beside the point because what no specific and ever capture our played better supposed to be made that are not attempted. Guys that are left open on the field balls that are brought a little late so it. Five yard catch should've been a twelve yard catch back kind of thing and would tailor that that's the way of life for Emmitt the quarterback at this point it's been a buried. Palpable albeit issue for two years now there has not been a lot of improvement with data and it had gotten the point where you can see. The buffalo it was great growth in India and especially Anthony land. They're hater in the office to tell operatives there haven't played all around certain limitation. That dealer or shall from the pocket. The one thing you also while the other one the other good things it seemed dangerous about Tyrod Taylor is that. You know he's not comfortable in the pocket and yet he. He's got great escape ability you'd think he would have certain comfort level just in his own ability to get away from pressure you don't see that I'm on your film breakdown. Well I think that great escape ability can ride powder to a guy look call like the pocket comfort her for lack of a departure of the best per wreaking come up with. Are you that you can't escape then think you spent your whole life high school. College coming into the pros even early you're not awkward you've been able to run away from people. And as for your instinct is to run away from people and there are very do you play design. Better drawn up to help work quarterback trying to run away from people if it's not the way to geometry of the field in the geometry of formation plays out. So there are times and east it is almost every mobile QB. There are and are you should stay in the pocket the best place to do it you opportunities are there. And your instinct get the better of you and you move needlessly in the pocket. And you see that would tailoring you can Helen's been drilled it in their hand to play differently because you do see him make a deliberate effort that they in the pocket. But they're always stepped oriented down and they come with him too early in the count too often it's too early in the down. Where beat and beat kicked and whatever drove in the end doled out the window and you see him move. Unnecessarily. You beat him start to panic and it totally clean pocket play a little spat it's just we're talking about a lack. Of refinement from the pocket he's not the first guy and other media air play in the NFL. But it's immediate mean he's not eighty you do not in apple quality starting quarterback like that. Nanny when you when you break down assume. You know how many times. Than not is he actually just like missing guys are being late in because of that he has to move out of the pocket. It happened every game and it happened at different stages of every game I can say almost every game yet think of the browns game where he was very very good data are called the you know he has. Very good moment either Halliburton about. Player but you see it every single game of all I it's gotten where I've watched bill pay. Much clothes aren't lower because it's harder to account for what not being pro what not open and they wanna make sure you're seeing everything because. As some of the stuff guys quite frankly. It's one thing commit. Guys are not that habit feel Beijing the vehement than another to leave guys open within the design of the players there are time for it then simple read. Be easy reach begin at quarterback going and the ball wasn't thrown there either so you don't know what you're going to get from snap snap with bad. And just imagine trying to drop play debate coach Coles played everybody else about the issue. Andy Benoit joins us he's gone through NFL team by team offseason needs he's got. The bill's biggest need a quarterback and a lot of us wonder Andy you know if that if that's the biggest need they fix that with the the prospects come out of the draft and and the likely you know absence of any big name free agent quarterback says it might be their biggest need but is it a neither can be filled this offseason. Right at majors have been done already read it figured they go get a quarterback. Maybe you don't have a lot of options there are enough picture does have the unique wrinkle out there are there might be guys available on the veteran market Jimmy go drop below. Potentially portrayed Kirk cousins potentially portrayed Tony Romo. All of those guys were different regions would cost a lot you got probably overpaid former give up that we added draft picks and money you're gonna you bet the premium were talking. About so it it's not easy to find it QB that that the conundrum that a lot in find themselves then. Buffalo not the only one. But I believe Taylor cap number it's a market about twelve million guaranteed money coming up Christina is that correct yes. So I think for twelve million there you can get a quarterback who's very comparable to Taylor. Probably even more stable guy like Josh held for example and it would cost you up fraction of the twelve million. So I. I've got that you have that fact they're ready whenever the discussion about Taylor that he is a a lower middle here starting quarterback in best and I guess that technically that kind of money he's getting but. You can find it cheaper lower your little starting quarterback in twelve million dollars bail. There wanna turn your attention to another great post that you had late last week on MM QB. With Peter King web site. You Super Bowl film breakdown in which you kind of start right out of the gate after you broke down the video of the falcons and patriots. Talking about how the Atlanta Falcons defense tired as the game went along in India. The the patriots. Took advantage of that as the game went along was that maybe you're one of the big conclusion you drew from watching that video. Yes I think that was what determined the Super Bowl in Atlanta it was I mean they've played 99 snaps that they gave an app average game it's beep beep or snap in the NFL. Little play in 99 of them end on the nineteenth. Game of your speed data and auto week we're all your schedule was different well your body clock killing different. You're going to run out of gas and especially did it really welcomed by an offense like New England. You could make it very legitimate argument that the gonna sound crazy to people put up a look at or talk in the bowl game and not just a few isolated. Fourth quarter decision which had been debated at audio you can make a very legitimate argument at Atlanta Al coached NL electrocuted new England and that gave violate ballot executed for the first half they had an excellent game plan on though. I thought that coaching was superb and all that happened with the game plan like eating game plan it stopped working when the defense ran out of debt. And I guess I have to pose this question do you do. Did the patriots. Beat the falcons of the falcons lose the game. I think the patriots still be about it because they ran lane and I played good they were consistently moving the ball and they're something to be separate out of course. What I don't like that outlet that did so well was beef they use they have some unique wrinkle out of their man coverages and they played. More variation been more demand demand and New England expected. And that had a big factor in the game but it's hard to play man coverage for so long as you're running all over the field with your guy or not like you're camping out and so they're reading and reacting. You're running for the whole duration of the map. Plot with New England big backstop either individual receivers so each corner had ever specific receiver in New England boost their guys around so much. But those cores were all average jog back in sport before the snap. All their guy all over the field before the map so it was a great game plan it was not the bank collapse that 99 snapped. And New England or that landed a played 99 snaps are building New England won it. Andy Benoit from a Sports Illustrated has says super bull 51 game notes up on the QB website. One of the big plays was the strip sack Matt Ryan Donta hightower lot of people questioning now the play call itself why would you throw third one. You you point out that it's not a bad play caller was the simple blitz pickup that just didn't get done right as you look at the film. They kept at it it was that simple battery. You're gonna drop. Outplay under the assumption that you're running back going to blow the protection and especially on bad defensive front in that scenario. Tell the numbers off the only possible guy who caught a block hightower was screened. Which made it very easy reaper Freeman bats were hit I needed to go first they didn't it was just that mental mistake though things happen. He blew the protection but the part that isn't caught on the on television when the show on the game and I I have to give credit to Greg cosell I noticed that after he mentioned something to me. Altered Robin and their number or number five wide receiver he beat Dioner RT EEB Butler Malcolm Butler EB don't beat. Over the top and up to I believe Ryan was looking for so the deep drop back he was a shop play and there would be 45 yard completion available. Premium blew the protection before it had just become the religion but. The same as the bad play call if that if that were a premed didn't global block they're they're making a 45 yards in everybody's. Pouting Kyle Shanahan for having the guts the broad deep on third and one and that's why you become head coach. That he can't analyze coaching after the result of the play up analyze how the play book going into the play and how the play on old. In effect and you say. You know not only did Kyle Shanahan not blow that call you right did you thought he was outstanding throughout the course of the game. When he dominated New England the same week dominated other defensive coordinators. Throughout the year and I think Shanahan individually dominated aperture and Bill Belichick but Atlanta offered. Dominated New England beat parents for the first. Quarter an app virtually. Two and a half quarters of the game. And they pitted the way they've done it all to go lot by being a highly in dolphins they haven't caught up formation. A ton of different route concept they have. Plays that are designed to beat man coverage on one side of the field. And don't coverage on the other side appealed to the play in theory has an answer for everything and Matt Ryan was very sharp ready to game plan voted. It New England they were back on their heels and I believe that's why Atlanta didn't run the ball much in the second half but they didn't have a lot lately there weren't a lot of chances. But on the plane they did have baseball they could move the ball ruby air because they have moved the ball through the air and they'd done that all people logged nobody had been able to compete with that offense. For the past 78 week heading into that game and ever made trooper most of that game it was true and tell it what it. But you can't look in there all what it's pretty much they should have done it differently. It that's why they were buried had to work very well within including what's been most of that game against New England. The game and he will always be remembered. For the patriots comeback an incredible. A comeback from 25 point deficit and as you point out after doing the film notes they did it really without any big place there were no big chocolates right in the title game. There are incredible I got both the film that I don't wait a minute what was important but that there were some defining plays or some huge converted on. Sixteen to twenty yard conversions including on the third down situation. But they have their longest play and the whole game people are expected quarters or James White catch that went 28 yards so nothing enact come back they were down 25. Midway through the bird and not only did they come back but they didn't have any huge didn't play well no big giant swing in the game bad turn over on deep and but be offered remained methodical throughout the day and they were so well executed so crisp that that was about the comeback even that short amount of time. It's really good work candy I would it be anybody is not sick of the Super Bowl yet reliving that they're great game. But today and even though it's Super Bowl 51 film notes it's on the MM QB website MM QB that SI dot com idiocy NFL analysts and staff writer for Sports Illustrated in the MM QB and Andy we thanks for. We thank you for coming on the show this great stuff thanks. Always appreciate it there are.
