Hello Falcon fans and welcome to the K & D sports podcast. I’m your host Keanu
I’m Derrick Coleman.
Unknown Speaker 0:09
Give me your, your take on the Super Bowl.
As a defensive guy It was a good game
But offensively, horrible
you play corner, right?
Yes I play corner
yeah, go ahead
I mean, I’m watching the game and I’m like,
Who’s gonna score?
Who’s gonna score?
Who’s gonna score first?
You know we’re going to give you guys the breakdown, little bit of quarter by quarter. You want to go ahead and start with the
So the first, the first five plays of the game, the Patriots ran run plays and they’re actually running the ball pretty well, too. They got to the other side of the field but on the six play as Brady seems to pass it, it’s intercepted by the Rams corner or excuse me linebacker Cory Littleton
Now on that play, Brady threw it super late, super late to Chris Hogan.
That was the interception right?
That was the interception
If he threw it earlier, that would have been I think the patriots could have scored on that first drive
Yeah I think personally the rams defense, had a hell of a game
oh, yeah same as the patients too
Yeah, how about that missed field goal
Yeah, you don’t see Stephen Gostkowski miss too many field goals in the playoffs
That’s that was pretty surprising to me.
I mean, even even if you look at the, at both quarterbacks, Tom Brady was six for six for 11 for 84 yards. One interception.
Jared Goff was two for six
17 yards passing
I noticed that during the game he, he was inaccurate
during the first half.
I believe there was something wrong with wrong with his hand.
Yeah, there might have been but he was also getting pressured a lot by the Patriots defensive line
How you like how you like my boy Tony Romo calling the game?
The play calling?
he’s been doing a pretty good job the whole little season
I like money when he likes to tell the play before the play actually happened too
Which is pretty cool
I mean the way he broke down every defensive guy that was coming at the quarterback. You know,
he also did that uhh, he also did that pretty well during the chiefs game
Yeah he did
Two three weeks ago
Unknown Speaker 2:52
Umm total yards after the first quarter patriots had 122 and the rams had 29
first downs patriots had eight and rams had only one first down
For time possession, patriots they pretty much chewed up the whole first quarter
Yeah they did
with 11 minutes 47 seconds and the Rams three minutes and 13 seconds
Which you know, if you if you look at the Rams defensive coordinator
Wade Phillips. Yeah.
He’s, he was a really good coach. But as a defensive guy
He’s yeah, he’s like a Matt Patricia
he might actually be better than Matt Patricia
Yeah I think I think from what I was reading, yesterday, was that the linebacker, the Patriots have to go look for a new linebacker coach.
He’s taking the head coaching position that
What you think about that?
I’m not too surprised actually, You know, I think any any coach on the Patriots roster or coaching staff can definitely be a head coach. Any of them. Any of them. They all have that Belichick mindset and coaching ability.
They have his younger coaching mentality.
I think personally, once Brady decides to retire, I think Belichick is gonna step down.
Oh, yeah, and then once Belichick steps down, I think the offensive coordinator for the Patriots, I think he will step up because he’s a lot like Belichick
yeah he was supposed to up for a head coaching position last year
Yes he was I forgot do you do you remember his name?
Shoot, I forgot his name too. Anyways, in the second quarter, the rams defense stepped up and stalled the patriots drive, but was unable to hold Gostkowski to a 42 yard field goal which gave New England the lead three to zero.
Through 25 is there have been many highlights from Atlanta, or or.. correct from Atlanta. At halftime, Tom Brady went 15 for 25 who threw for 160 passing yards and one interception. That’s that’s not like Tom Brady at all.
Usually he has a couple of touchdowns before halftime, but that there it goes against it’s a defensive game.
And even the Rams defense held Tom Brady to such little passing yards.
But the guy who who know ended up being the game MVP, Julian Edelman?
He went off
Seven receptions 93 yards
That’s big in the first half
That’s really big.
Jared Goff he went 5 for 17 *Keanu and Derrick chuckle* 5 for 12 53 yards
And then gurly man
Gurly he just
what happened to him?
he couldn’t do anything. I think there’s something there
there’s something going on internally.
Oh yeah, all that taking the hits during the season everything it all catches up to you sooner or later. Moving on to the third quarter, four more punts were added to for the Patriots as rams traded field position. It’s worth noting that the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history was the dolphins 14-7 win over the Redskins in Super Bowl seven. We could be breaking records tonight folks that’s for sure.
In the third quarter the rams punter, Johnny Hekker?
Unknown Speaker 6:46
Hekker. Hekker now holds the record for the longest punt in Super Bowl history
Yeah I heard it was 65 yards
isn’t that the guy that won them?
And you know what’s crazy about that he got hurt like right after the game like
The rams and Okay, we’re going into the third quarter.
Yeah, oh it’s the third quarter?
the rams are finally on the on the board. Los Angeles puts together its longest drive of the game but still needed kicker Greg Zuerleren
Zerlein to nail to nail the 53 yard field goal, he delivered.
John Nate’s net
it was the first field goal first field goal from 50 plus yards in the Super Bowl, in the Super Bowl in 15 years.
Dang, you want to go ahead and
Yeah, going into the fourth quarter with 10 minutes and 25 seconds remaining in the game, Tom Brady and Jared Goff had passed for a combined 322 passing yards. Johnny Hekker has punted for 378 yards *Keanu laughs*
Give him an award
They need to renew his contract *Derrick laugh*
Yeah give him an award at the ESPYs or something
Yeah, two big passes from Tom Brady to Rob Gronkowski brought the patriots to the Rams goal line, and Sony Michel finally punched the ball in to score the first touchdown of the game. Given the patriots the lead ten to three
Fourth quarter the Rams offense finally came to life on a crucial drive but after driving his team to the Patriots 27 yard line, Jared Goff flow floated up a past that was easily picked off by
That killed it
That right there was the nail in the coffin.
Unknown Speaker 9:01
I feel like if they would have scored on that drive and held the Patriots on their next offense to drive. I feel like the Rams, it would’ve definitely been a better game the last two minutes and then rams could have scored win the game and finally bring a Super Bowl to LA
Yeah but I mean the next Super Bowl would be hear in what, two years?
Let’s see what let’s see what they’re
Three years three years
So let’s close this and talk about NBA tread trade deadlines, latest news, grades, and rumblings.
Where should we start? So blazers acquired Ronnie Hood from the cavs. So what the Cavs are going to get Ronnie Ronnie Hood. Cleveland is going to get Wayne Baldwin and Nick Stauskas
Also oh go head
but clearly also gets a 2021 pick a second round pick and 2023 second round pick
that’s not bad actually, for a good trade. Actually for one guy.
Three players and two second round picks, That’s not bad, that’s not bad at all.
The Knicks traded surprisingly traded, Porzingis to Dallas for Dennis Smith. The Mavericks will get Christos Porzingis, Courtney Lee, Tim Hardaway Jr., and Trey Burke
you know what’s crazy? You know surprises me that Nowitzki played with Tim Hardaway senior. And now he gets to play with Jr.
That’s not bad, that’s actually pretty cool actually.
That’s pretty cool. And he gets to actually porzingis gets to learn from Nowitzki too. You never know I mean Porzingis could might be the next Nowitzki maybe you think
I think if Nowitzki stays another couple years two three years. But not start. Not starting, he’ll come off the bench
He got to come off the bench.
Yeah because he’s old, he’s old, he’s forsure old
So what trade was that? Oh Okay? That was that traded
Mavericks and Knicks trade.
So New York Knicks. They get Dennis Smith Jr, DeAndre Jordan,
Wow, they traded DJ.
Right, Which here’s the thing. DJ wanted to be with Dallas.
and now that
Now they traded him
that was a middle of a season, now they want to get rid of him.
That might be like LA with Lonzo you know
Might have to trade him
Yup… Well, you know, we’ll talk about that towards the end.
Wesley Wesley Matthews. And then they also get two future first round picks. It doesn’t say what year but
Nah nah nah
we’ll figure out, Figure that out during the draft. So you want to go ahead and give us the Carmelo Anthony deal
you know I thought he retired? *Derrick laughs*. I thought he retired he needs to retire already
Yeah he does.
I think it seem, I think teams are just wasting their money on him, honestly. But anyways the rockets have agreed to send Carmelo to the bulls
Which by the deadline I think they’re gonna wave him
you think so?
Yeah, they said the word
so the rockets in exchange get draft rights to Tejeda Dad Rogovich. Can Melo help LeBron and the Lakers in LA he wants to get them?
we don’t need him.
Yeah. Same I wouldn’t want him either
I would rather see AD
Oh yeah Anthony Davis would be a good pick up but then we would have to give up a lot too.
that six pairs. six players
Six players man for AD
six players and a first round pick. That’s like half your roster.
Pretty much. That’s pretty that is pretty much half the roster for one guy.
But they have all that money sitting there so they could you know save for free agency. Maybe get Carmelo.
That is true
We don’t know what magic is thinking you know
Yeah it’s still we haven’t reached the half. Half the half point of the season yet so
it’s coming up
It’s coming up soon enough
what you think about the all star game
this year it’s coming up pretty soon. So so they’re going to do it like like the way they did it last year is that they have two team captain Captains
and they just want to pick
Oh so it’s like park ball pretty much?
It’s not bad I actually like that honestly thats
It was good last year.
let’s transition over to the Kobe Bryant interview on his opinions of James Harden and Houston.
Oowee. Did you get a chance to watch it?
I did not sadly
Man, So I’m quoting I’m quoting Kobe right now. Kobe he doesn’t think that the Houston Rockets can win a championship with the way the reigning MVP continuing to play this way. “Well, I think he has to do what he has to do in order for the his team to win,” Bryant said in an interview with ESPN.
What do you think about that?
Yeah I think I think it’s honestly too tough to win in that conference right now.
Golden State still at the top, Portland is up there. Who else is up there? Honestly all I know is about Golden State
Yeah, Golden State that’s the team you have to beat. Of like playoffs from the first seat to the eighth seed all roads lead to Golden State for sure.
I hate to see the same team win over and over
that’s like the same thing with the Patriots and the AFC you know
I was just going to ask you Did you see what Steve Kerr’s he kind of compare how New England was winning all these championships and how you know the Warriors can
yeah they they can build their pretty much building that same dynasty you know. And I think in order for Houston to beat Golden State you need to get players like Anthony Davis
You need Chris Paul back and Eric Gordon
Yeah yeah yeah
Eric Gordon for sure.
You need players like how Golden State have you know they have a curry, Thompson, Durant, Green. They have like three big guys you know and they have players come off the bench scoring points too.
Houston you don’t have that all you all you have is Harden, CP3 and that’s pretty much it. You don’t have any more star players.
What’s your take on James Harden what to think about his personality of playing?
He he’s very similar to Kobe you know in clutch moments when
you know when you need those points
I think he’s the guy where he’ll take the ball and score that game winning shot. But if they’re in a lead and you know they’re comfortable he he will pass it, kinda like CP3. I think that’s where CP3 comes in and he’s more he’s more selfish with the ball
Do you think James Harden is like a selfish player? Compared to curry?
No I think Harden is, I think more selfish than curry *Derrick laughs* Honestly yeah. I think curry he, Curry has his moments to not not selfishness but where he can become kind of a ballhog in a way.
I saw that I saw that
he doesn’t have to worry about scoring that game winning shot. You know? He He has Thompson. Who just scored what was it, he scored like ten threes in a row?
That’s ridiculous, in the first half too. You have Durant, you have green who can score from the outside. You know you don’t have to worry about you know losing the game when you got players like that. Yeah, Harden extended his streak of scoring at least 30 points to 27 games on Monday night with 44 points eight rebounds, six assists, in a 110 to 110 win over the Phoenix Suns. Is the third longest streak behind Wilt Chamberlain streak of 65 and 31. You know in the end when playoffs come and Houston’s is facing Golden State State, it’s all going to come to know going hard throughout the regular season, it’s tough. That long season in the NBA
It’s really tough.
It’s a surprise to me that James Harden agreed to what Kobe Bryant said you know which you know, he said we have injuries throughout the course of the of the year but when we get back CP3 and the rhythm of Eric Gordon back and get our full roster, we get multiple guys that can make that can make plays multiple guys that can dominate the ball. I mean, that’s that’s pretty true. You know?
Yeah. I feel like CP3 and Eric Gordon will take most of the pressure off Harden and you know, that harden can he can heal up you know. He doesn’t have to play like a full game and score this amount of points like he’s doing right now. I think, yeah I think getting CP three and Eric Gordon back will be good, probably in the second half of the season. I think going into the playoffs I think they’ll be healthy
If they make it that far
Yeah, I’m pretty sure they will
I’m sure they will.
So let’s think about Kobe a little bit. So you know, he recently opened his Mamba Sports Academy.
No, I didn’t. I didn’t hear about that.
Yeah he opened it a couple couple months ago, which we all know Kobe won five championships with
Big la. One of the things we probably don’t have time to go through all of this, one of the things is that Kobe Bryant ever since Kuzma came into the league, he’s been working with Kobe Bryant, you know,
Kobe Bryant been the one that’s been training him this offseason.
What you think about that?
You know I think
He’s basically his offseason mentor.
Yeah and with LeBron to during season, learning from two greats. I mean, don’t get me wrong they they are a young team, the Lakers, you know with Kuzma, Hart, Lonzo, I think in a couple years from now, they’re going to be that dominant team that can beat Golden State in Golden State and win a title and finally bring a title back to LA
the problem I’m having even towards the end, I think last year, the last 20 games, Lonzo didn’t play
or something like that. He was hurt most of the season last year.
Oh yeah yeah
And this year, he’s out for six weeks
Yeah I think I think it’s a good, it’s good that they’re having injuries right now because then they get the all star break to rest, you know get back to their healthy healthy self. And then
well, we all know we all know Lonzo’s Lonzo’s problem. He’s going to be traded,
mounted up a baby, baby mama drama.
aww probably maybe
That’s you know
not adding it then again, I think Lonzo of us to stay out of that. And focus on the team then his personal life. Because I think bringing personal life into the team that can
Ruin a lot of things and make mistakes.
Oh, yeah. Yeah. This is Kobe speaking. It depends on what you are trying to accomplish on what your what your long term objectives are, Bryant added now by signing Lebron James, you’re already making in in indication that you want to win right now. So I think it’s it’ll be a smart, smart thing to do for the Lakers to look at that. But at the same time you know that you got to play a little bit of poker. The Lakers, personally are our friend that pelicans a package. So we’re going today, just a little bit.
So the Lakers personally are often Okay. That includes forward Ingram *Kuzma*, Ball, and two first round picks, as well as a willingness to absorb the remaining of 12.7 million.
Man that’s pretty much your future right there you’re getting rid of honestly
Keanu & Derrick 23:45
that are your future. You better have a good draft coming up the next few years if you want your team to actually be winning. Don’t get me wrong, I think LeBron and AD I think they can definitely win win games, but throughout the stretch of the season and playoffs.
LeBron, he can definitely work with a young team. I mean look look what he did a couple years back when he won a championship. He had a young team, he had some veterans
which one, Miami or cleveland?
Cleveland. Obviously. It was a 2016 when he won
He had a young team but he still managed to win a championship. I think that might be the deal with Lebron you know coming to LA he has a couple of veterans but the majority of the team is young.
I think Lebron is due to play tonight. He sat out last weeks Saturday’s game
Okay. The Pelicans haven’t counted the Lakers offers yet but do have expectations that Johnson will overwhelm them with young players and a store called job pics. You think also they’re going to give La money to along with AD
They have to
You think so?
He’s gonna need to pick
Yeah I mean, I think they’re going to need at least two or three draft picks
Yeah I mean, so let’s go back to Lonzo his daddy doesn’t want him to go to New Orleans
I want him to go to Phoenix I’m like who’s over there? Can they deal with with with him?
Honestly I don’t think so.
I don’t either.
I think I think Lonzo’s too young to be the captain of the team you know. I don’t think I don’t think it will work out I think Phoenix will still remain the same.
He’s not Lebron when LeBron was younger
Oh no *Derrick laughs* heck no
He’s not Kobe when Kobe was younger
Lebron didn’t have a baby mama.
Lebron focuses life on basketball.
and just basketball
Lebron didn’t have that fame you know coming out of high school or college yet like lonzo did
now you’ve seen the ball brothers at Chino Hills High School. You seen Lonzo at UCLA, only played a year there and he’s in the NBA now
I mean his other brother couldn’t even make it into the draft
Gelo messed up big time.
Well, yeah, after what happened in China
I think mellow I think mellow has a good chance of making it
But he’s in the G league right now.
Melo. Not Carmelo but Lamelo Ball
that’s the youngest right?
He decided to go to high school.
Oh that’s right I forgot he’s in High School now
he decided to go to Crossroads High School
Which is his Dad wasn’t happy with it
Nah I think his Dad wanted him to still play ball overseas, but that’s a good decision though by melo by coming back to school, getting your education
Because that comes first before sports
I think his dad needs to realize that he can’t base is life at such a young age too. I mean, it’s good to have sports in your life, but you need that education.
you need that backup
Yeah because your not gonna be playing sports until you’re in your 60s or something
I mean, look at look at Shaq, you know?
He went back and got his degree now he’s you know, he can work anywhere.
Yeah he can work anywhere, do anything he wants
I think it’s good though he’s good with working at TNT pregame postgame in talk shows on commercials.
Those are funny though
Yeah, those are pretty funny
And it’s fun to look at him and Charles Barkley they will sit sit next to each other. They don’t like each other at all. That’s kinda crazy. So next week we’ll be to be you know, bring you guys some more info on
Falcon sports, basketball, baseball. All those coming up next week
Yeah, I was I was looking at our stats our, our baseball team they’re they’re horrible. They haven’t won a game yet.
They haven’t won a game yet?
Let’s hope that changes
Lets hope. They were supposed to play today but because of the rain today or tomorrow one one of those they are supposed to play
Well Falcon fans that’s it for K and D sports talks. I’m Keanu I’m Derek and we’ll see you all next week.
