FIRST TAKE | Stephen A. EXPECTS Mahomes among NFL’s top 10 – Kansas City Chiefs vs Minnesota Vikings

be it’s something that will motivate you for the rest of your career touchdown kansas city biggest thing that i preach to myself is you never want to be satisfied with where you’re at we’d be better than we were this last year and go out there and win the super bowl [Music] all right prior to the unveiling of their rankings the top 10 players in the nfl is voted on by their fellow peers the players themselves important detail has been released and there’s some familiar names uh tom brady yes patrick mahomes aaron rodgers okay josh allen or the quarterbacks well aaron donald and tj watt are the lone representatives on the defensive side since the players never get any love all right who’s the player outside of the top 10 that can jump into the top 10 this upcoming season hedy i might have to go with russell wilson he’s a guy who’s done it since he’s entered the nfl he’s been the most consistent of anyone i think we can even name right now you look at russell wilson last year halfway through the year we were actually talking about him being an mvp being the top candidate as a as an mvp of the league and he only passed with 4 200 yards 40 touchdowns 13 interceptions so i don’t know why people are sleeping on russ but russ is here to stay he’s most consistent and i told you yesterday max i’m gonna never bet against a guy who’s not scared to get on his knees and pray in church in front of everybody um i love russell wilson yeah russell wilson’s a good pick over the last half dozen years let’s say he’s probably the best player in the nfl but what’s interesting is you got to take all those years right like cause the other guy’s names change has an off season isn’t it but russell wilson has never been to me that’s the best player in the league this year but if you took his value over that last time we talked about it last year for half the year yeah well we talked about other years forever the year cam newton won mvp for half the year russell wilson was better than anyone he’s had stuff like that but if you took if the season was six seasons long he’d be the mvp of the league right now um so i like that pick uh but i gotta go with justin herbert because justin herbert just had a season for the ages as a rookie with a bad head coach and no offensive line think about that for a second now per sharp analytics three plus step drops he was pressured 47 of the time 40 half the time he takes three plus steps he’s facing pressure and he still put up four thousand plus passing guards as a rookie who wasn’t even supposed to play this dude is different as i said if trevor lawrence fulfills every hope we have for him he’ll look like justin herbert just looked only now you got a new head coach and you buff your offensive line rashaan slater right uh uh uh corey linsley right you got you got guys who are potent one stud at a potential stud justin herbert could his peak play could be next to only mahomes and rogers he could join that group as like these three dudes let’s put them aside they’re not normal everyone else is kind of normal great these dudes aren’t normal he’s got that kind of talent now i have to agree with you justin herbert is going to be a player to reckon with in this league but i think the bet you left the you left one thing out though max the best thing that happened to justin herbert was brandon stanley becoming his head coach but lombardi being his offensive coordinator because that guy can coach the game of football we’ve seen him he had stunts in uh new orleans where drew brees was there doing all the things that he was doing but i’m very high on justin herbert and i’m glad he has a new head coach and new coaching staff now he has those players around him now he can pick defenses apart yeah even if he’s a defensive guy but like he was he’s coming out of a bad situation he made it but he has also offensive background as well too yeah i love both of these i want to see russell wilson win another super bowl max i’m very high on the chargers and justin herbert my only thing that i would kind of caution you on is that we have tape on him now because people weren’t expecting him they didn’t see him coming so now that now they got a year’s worth of tape so sometimes that can make a difference when defenses are coming after him yeah and you got to also be that good under pressure you know as a fir like you got to continue to do that that’s hard to do yeah they always talk about the sophomore slump for nothing but but i agree with you guys and everything else i’m just throwing that out i love the fact that he has steven allen but not only keel and allen he has mike williams a jump ball receiver yep when if things go to bad he can just throw it up and let him go get it absolutely all right does cam newton have what it takes to lead new england to the playoffs we’re talking playoffs find out why max has i think he’s lost all his confidence well well let me respond let me respond to that real quick because because molly directed what i was saying number one yes it was wenzel’s name all that stuff occurred before the injury that’s true and before they ever won the super bowl not after that was leading up to it and i give him his props for the way he played then that’s the once we’re talking about that we don’t know that that guy’s ever gonna come back and the reason i say tough love when you say well he needs someone to build him up he needs to be built up from everything pocket awareness confidence like everything footwork everything he needs to be built back up and the injury i agree with you molly played a part i i’m not i’m not saying we’re not talking about the cause i’m just talking about the effect right but in terms of what can affect him now i think the last thing he needs is people telling him how great he is that’s how he wound up in this position in the first place well i’m gonna i’m gonna tell you a lot of it happened and marcus kind of touched on it a little bit the the bottom line of this the whole situation is that carson wentz need to get out his feelings this game has no place for your feelings i had a receiver coach that told me that when i first got into the lead this game cares nothing about your feelings man up and play the game of football no one cares about your feelings in this league and until carson wins understands that he’s going to continue to be in these situations time at the time team at the team it doesn’t matter where he goes get out your feelings that’s that’s the bottom line to me marcus perry that’s a beautiful statement that’s a beautiful statement and to respond to you molly about the carson wentz that needs to be built up i saw bruce arias curse out tom brady seven times last year because if you’re a baller you’re gonna play like every everybody needs the bad cop that’s a part of staffs that’s a part of football organizations you need guys that’s gonna force carson winston say hey man throw the ball away and don’t go get hit in the knees all right get rid of the football all right trust the things that we telling you on the football field trust these plays i’m talking about all of the things that came up outside of him playing bad in philly that came up about how his attitude was and how he responded to criticism that was a part of why carson wentz took a lot of heat in philly yeah we all acknowledged that everything wasn’t great around him but the way he handled it i was talking about this morning on get up with trevor lawrence in his performance with the jacksonville jaguars last night you know what i respected about trevor lawrence even though he was under all of that duress he said it’s me i need to do better i got to get the ball out of my hands we got to start clicking offensively those are the things that i was looking for from carson wentz so yes he needs to be built up he needs to be around a guy that believes in him but he also needs somebody to tell him the truth and that’s the point that harry is making that’s the point that max is making and molly is a great question i get it if i see the goat get first out right everybody get cursed out no absolutely listen i grew up on tough love i had the strictest father there was i couldn’t sleep in on the weekends i could go on and on all these things so that’s how i get uh but some people no i don’t but some people don’t always respond when the confidence broken but we will carry on because this is not about me max you’re up first give me your top afc sleeper team because i think you you mentioned it harry the afc’s gone a lot better it’s actually the chargers i think the chargers because i i can’t say the patriots anymore because they’re not getting slept on anymore i said that a couple weeks ago i didn’t hear a lot of people saying it now everyone’s saying it i won’t say the dolphins i think it’s the same thing it’s very tour dependent if two is good dolphins gonna be really good but the chargers the chargers could win double digits all right season the chargers had one of the worst coaches in the nfl last year just look at the results um they switched that up they have a guy who seems to know something about defense right now they built up their offensive line they had among the worst [Music] you
