[BREAKING NEWS] Jay Williams REPORT: Rams acquire RB Sony Michel from Patriots

and stafford and what they’re trying to create there i like the sony michelle fit right i mean i like the duplicity of him as a back being able to get out of the backfield you know he’s learned screen game you know how to get out of the backfield in the passing game all those things in new england i understand some of the injury concerns um you know that sony has kind of faced in his career but i like this pickup i think it’s i think it brings a lot of balance uh to the rams offense and just kind of again an added running back when you lose your guy to a season ender before this even starts it hurts but i do think this is a great addition for the rams in your mind now when you think about this edition because we thought we were talking about the rams in such high regard with cam akers now with you bringing a guy that’s a veteran a guy that understands how to run in between the tackles much like todd gurley he still can be one of those screen prizes where do you put the rams now back as far as your your rankings as far as super bowl contenders like them listen i i think you know when you think about the nfc west i i like what they’ve done the my only issue bart the whole thing about matt stafford is big games right i mean the guy just has not had a ton of them but if you’re going to get matched with a coach who gives you the most confidence mcveigh would be that guy right you’re going with he’s a very good play caller i like the design he has a ton of stuff kind of based off wing t principles which you and i both know we faced way back in high school and and just the ability to kind of morph that running game to help a quarterback i love all of that so again i’m a big fan of uh of where the rams are i think it’s between them and the 49ers in this uh you know in their division so i like it my biggest concern with the rams is on the defensive side it’s got nothing to do with the offense it’s just with the loss of certain players and their defensive coordinator i know i know raheem’s gonna do a good job on the defensive side but it’s just a concern of how quickly can that defense gel and what does that look like it’s going to be a tough division you and i both know it’s going to be it’s going to be a you know it’s kind of going to be like like a like an afc nor there’s going to be some smack around some tough games uh yeah so i like the division but i do like the rams uh you know to get the division in a tight one with the 49ers yeah i think that i actually absolutely think the nfc west is that division you want to watch because you could argue all four teams could make the playoffs in some way and in fact you know this year with the extra wild card technically it could happen all right jeff saturday joining us on the goodyear hotline let’s play some take your pick jeff so we’re gonna go through two names you pick which one and it’s based on your expertise if you base this solely on offensive line for each team or each player i should say who would you start so let’s go with jacksonville based on their offensive line would you start trevor lawrence or gardner minshew i’m gonna go trevor lawrence uh but with the idea you gotta get rid of the ball bro don’t be a deer in the headlights like the ball’s gotta come out one two three throw it away right like you know tackles have struggled a bit so i’m going trevor lawrence though i’m nervous about trevor lawrence man listen they just i’d rather wrap him in bubble wrap they’re just not ready what we saw happened to joe burrow last year man it’s like it’s like man see i beat real champion i can see somebody from one of the other teams and they’re just knocking him senseless man he’s such a long guy you see he’s willing to run those long legs they take that knee out i worry about his acl too because guys gonna chop them legs out man listen man just punt planting on the next season you got you know you got some giant effect and prune this line man minchu going here with you with your jeans shorts with a handlebar mustache man and have at it man if he dies he that’s not right all right let’s see how many how many rocky iv references can we have in one in one segment all right would you um who would you base now who would you start based on offensive line in new york zach wilson or whoever the hell the backup is there yeah a reporter and he talked about lamar jackson and the pressure on it remember josh allen already got paid in that draft class baker mayfield expecting as well and lamar jackson is another guy up to get paid big time so listen to what jeremy fowler says about lamar jackson and the pressure on him this season take a listen there are a lot of people around the league that i speak to that are talking a little slick they say this might be the year that everybody figures out lamar jackson like there’s sort of that feeling right now he can definitely prove that wrong but i think there’s a little bit of pressure on him right now he doesn’t have a deal either wait a minute did he just say this is the year that the whispers are this is the year the league figures out lamar jackson bart so of course what do we do when a hot take like that is put out there in the world we go to lamar jackson and we ask him did you hear what jeremy fowler said and what do you think of it i’m going to keep playing football we’re going to see but i doubt it dude i died i strongly doubt it don’t play ball i doubt it dude i doubt it well i wouldn’t expect him to say yeah yeah i think this is the year they’re going to figure it out yeah they got me yeah yeah they got me but bart what do you expect out of lamar jackson this year i expect lamar jackson to evolve right and um i think he’s going to evolve because the team has surrounded him with the talent for him to evolve right they talk about him struggling throwing the ball outside well the you know the he was trying to throw you know thread the needle throwing to a small target like hollywood hollywood brown who really couldn’t get open what did they do they went out and they got a former number one overall i mean not former first round draft pick top 10 pick and sammy watkins they spent their own first round draft pick on rashad bateman who has looked tremendous which allows a guy like hollywood brown to be able to work in it yeah but yeah he’ll be back he has growing certain growing surgery but you know it allows hollywood brown to play in the slot they still have andrew so now he has a good tight end underrated right he’s he’s top five tight end in the league right you talk about the numbers pro bowl or all that stuff and they surround him finally with the talent for him to be able to to really show his arm outside remember this is a kid that’s been doubted every step of the way i mean he’s the most scrutinized um heisman trophy winner probably since johnny manziel right when you talk about like him coming in and people not having belief in him there’s a reason that he slipped because people didn’t think that he could throw the football accurately from the pocket well his whole his whole final year of college was trying to prove that he could be a powerful person exactly but what he does as well like he still has a strong arm he still has an accurate arm but what he does with what he’s able to do with his legs is is phenomenal right and i i i haven’t seen the quarterback do this since michael vick you know just on purpose just being here he wants mvp right and so his productivity is through the roof and i think you only talk about figuring them out i think this jk diamonds kid is going to be a problem as well i think he’s a sleepy like breakout player candidate for me you know the fact that he’s gonna have another year they get ronnie stanley back yeah they lose orlando brown junior but they’ve upgraded venezuela is not a big you know drop-off from what orlando brown jr did and so i think they’re going to be able to be a tremendous team uh they’re going to have a great season i believe and i think lamar jackson is going to prove the doubters wrong like he always does it is amazing to think again a guy at one mvp mvp the league’s going to figure him out you know is he is he the where would you power rank him in a division as far as like out of quarterbacks because there’s you know you have good quarterbacks joe burroughs young obviously in that division i think he’s number one big ben’s the old guy so where does lamar fit i think lamar is number one he’s the best but i do think that joe burl like when they get him a great team around him if they can surround him with the same type of teammates around against carson palmer i think he becomes the more effective quarterback because there’s always a concern that lamar jackson is going to end up like robert griffin iii remember rg3 no pro bowler his first year yeah and he got injured that gruesome injury when he was out there running you worry about you know he puts himself at harm’s way so much that all it takes is one hit that he doesn’t see and how does that alter his gait and alter his game when you’re able to take away that element and teams are trying to they’ve tried everything they’ve slowed lamar jackson down they have yet to stop him and i think you know he’s going to evolve right when they think they have them figured out bart made the reference let’s bring him right in robert griffin iii joining us right now on the goodyear hotline again heisman winner all the same type of accolades nfl offensive rookie of the year in 2012. pro bowler certainly rg3 we appreciate you joining us right now and again welcome to espn welcome to the family you heard what bart said and you know i don’t know if you you got to hear some of that back and forth where jeremy fowler said last week that the whispers are that the league is going to figure out lamar jackson lamar said i don’t think so and of course you played with him for three seasons you know what he’s about and you certainly understand that style of play is the league going to figure him out or do you see him having a big season this year see lamar having a big season this year i think uh jeremy fowler is just speaking on behalf of all of the nfl uh defensive coordinators out there that are hoping and praying that they can figure out lamar jackson you know the beautiful thing about lamar and the way he plays is uh sometimes he doesn’t even know what he’s going to do he plays strictly off instincts so just as teams as bart was saying his teams think they’re figuring him out they’re not you know they’re not figuring what out what he does because he’s such an instinctual player the bottom line is that uh as lamar continues to grow and develop he’s going to become even better and there’s one factor you can’t take away from him as long as he stays healthy he can do things that other guys just can’t do make guys miss run fast down the field cut on a dime and i think that’s what makes him truly special because then you have to deal with his throwing ability and his ability to push the ball down the field so i think lamar will be in good hands and like he said he’s just gonna go play football everybody else has to try to figure him out and at the same time he’s figuring out uh the things that he can do on that football every single sunday now a lot of that may be coming from last year remember lamar expressed his frustration with greg roman’s offense saying hey man they kind of know what we’re doing they had the you guys had to buy we gotta know why i’m saying they you guys had the bye week and you and you kind of switched some things up what does the additions of a guy like sammy watkins and a guy like rashad bateman on the outside do for lamar jackson in this package that should be able to continue to grow now that they’ve been together for a long time yeah bart if you watch lamar play you know that he loves to throw the ball to mark andrews right yeah and a big contingent for him and the ravens and everyone that’s watching is his ability to throw the ball outside the numbers so how do you get that done you bring in guys like rashad baby you bring in a guy like sammy watkins and you know that these guys can win one-on-one matches on the outside they know how to get open and that’s going to give them all more confidence to stretch the field outside the numbers and not just stretch the field in between the numbers and the hashes so i think that’s great for them obviously they got to get healthy right now they’re dealing with a ton of injuries but maybe some of these injuries and some of this arrested these guys are getting is going to help them in their regular season and their longevity there but i don’t think that’s a massive concern like one of our uh our comrades thinks and dan orlowski that the ravens receivers are all injured but i think that’s something they wanted to address in the offseason they did that and now they get to go out and showcase that uh on when the regular season comes about you know the great thing about you know what lamar does is he dictates coverage right because you have to have that eighth man in the box you’ve seen teams try and put more skilled position players out there in the box but that just opens everything up for jk dobbins you know uh i just want to ask you about a guy who hasn’t lived up to the building um in that ravens facility and it’s kind of hollywood bronze they brought him in here to be a true number one the fact that they had to go out against sammy watkins the fact that they had to go out and
