Aren't welcome everybody it's the weekend -- I'm Michael -- this is -- -- Matt this is brought to you might appeal or near I've fallen into. Today remote control you don't need to have you just take that and you know do the same thing that we quickly click. Well leveled him on NFL opening weekend it's a huge weekend obviously. Force everybody -- what fantasy owners people who don't like fantasy football it's similar spring training everybody's very optimistic. -- What we're gonna do this year we're both competitive people yet we're gonna pick for game two weeks and it's going to be the raider game the matter. The Eagles game because He grew up in the Eagles in the Jets game because I grow up. A Jets fan so let's start with the 49ers and -- that isn't -- I would take the 49ers there all week one. Knew we are under Harbaugh. Seattle's stinks thing. That is nine. The -- and -- the Theo Seahawks however. Because I just didn't see anything and it's part 49ers. Q there are put themselves Miami ball. Right out of the blocks on the Raiders days are playing football that's correct in Denver Monday Night Football in Denver that's kind of a rivalry game used to be -- that game. He had John Fox. Run and the Broncos. Instead. What was the guys and master Mike Shanahan. Now -- Josh McDaniels threat I think the Broncos have bowl and it was -- bowl hat blowing. Yes it was -- know is nobody in my ear telling me daddy knows Clint Hurdle. It that's visiting Pittsburgh something music and her. Off I've taken the Raiders I'm going Broncos -- -- if I believe last year Raiders beat Denver in Denver like 53 last year on the mountains. Seriously put -- a -- -- down nine nothing like are needed to block punts early in the game and that recall. Let's go to fifteen trips. With it but like Raiders to. -- bone to pick would you do it sets up that was incorrect they did on the radio today how about Al Michaels. Al Michaels said in all TNT thing He said would you call -- guy genius who had seven straight seasons of eleven losses. In a row He said he's wrong they won eight games last year so he's factually incorrect. Actually you're factually you know not like He never said. Most recently they've lost eleven straight games. Columbus to push back. If you have a team that watched. Or seventh it. Had a seven year period where they lost the levens for you that's all we should. Should have clarified is a world class broadcasters. When I hear he's had seven consecutive seasons I'm thinking that. Consecutive streak is still blown. You should make that assumption that. Maybe a year ago were aggressive -- -- our idea that you gave that we're gonna pick we're going to pick in your Jets. At home against the Dallas Cowboys -- that you know when it goes this is going to be the Jets the Cowboys can't stand them. Jets favorite team grown up I have to go with the Jets where you gonna go I with the Eagles were actually where you are but I also haven't picked the Jets. With an eagle and I hate the Cowboys but the Jets or do I get it. -- -- The Super Bowl. Contender this year worthy Super Bowl worth not some -- got to pick the Jets just as smart and -- obviously the Eagles -- India. They're playing in the St. Louis Cardinals. Or the Rams. Well Cardinals Rams whenever. -- Arizona Cardinals and they'll they'll learn about what saint louis' Lomax He can get hot. There -- the only black man this guy's got pressure all right one last thing before we get going because we were very and it -- that program. Giants. Diamondbacks. The other players on the team. -- yeah Cardinals whatever. That's got a shot that's. Oh man now because whatsoever no because they are not that I can see. Arizona faltering. A little bit down the stretch. I cannot see the Giants. Finish in the year like Celtics that's that is exactly. I don't think they're gonna do that what is more likely public -- -- -- ending up in the hall of fame -- the Giants winning this division this year. The odds of policy and Oliver missed the meal. You get on -- -- away yeah. Really his tail off again seasonally. Is tailed off yes -- the last month like productive consistent hitter on this team. How is Beltran bill last week or what's his name right now I felt shrugged -- listed notre. -- there. Good dad. There's not all right this didn't play well lately are seriously. I think every sign mr. chancellery sign -- definitely not. They're gonna have to lower that sides considerably. Mean they get a lot of money's still on the books are going to be in -- and -- -- still and Bears and Jimmy Rollins out here that's what I'm saying you have rob always finally agree Johnson and Jimmy Rollins takes care your shortstop position -- little pop takes care of at all just -- The woman He -- a couple birds one stone there knowing.
