Happy Halloween weekened! It is a jam packed Friday. Trevor Lawrence tests positive for COVID, Tony La Russa at 76 years old is now the new manager of the White Sox?! I'm intrigued. It's unfortunate to see what's happening with high school sports in Illinois, Daryl Morey to the Sixers gives me faith that Sixers ownership might know what it's doing, week 8 NFL picks ATS. Lets get back on track!
Dodgers Get It Done: Kershaw’s Legacy, Mookie over Trout, Justin Turner, Analytics | The Tom Brady Influence
The Dodgers finally got it done, winning their first World Series since 1988. There's a lot to unpack: Clayton Kershaw saves his legacy, Dave Roberts saves his job, Justin Turner tests positive, the case for Mookie Betts over Mike Trout. Also, after reading the TB12 Method, one thing became apparent. Tom Brady preaches focus, discipline, accountability, consistency and the pursuit of greatness. That's translated to the Buccaneers locker room, changed the culture and has the Buccaneers looking like the best team in the NFC.
Chase Senior and former Penn State, NFL and XFL quarterback, Matt McGloin recap a highly entertaining week seven in the NFL. Tom Brady and the Bucs are rolling, while Cam Newton and Bill Belichick.....are not. Steelers - Titans was a fantastic heavyweight fight. OBJ is done for the year, but Baker balled for the Browns. Russell Wilson vs. Kyler Murray is going to be a lot of fun for the next several years. All of that and more! Enjoy!
We measure quarterbacks on comebacks, game winning drives and clutch plays. While Carson Wentz may not be elite yet, he is CLUTCH. The sample size proves that. Also, lets make some week seven picks ATS! So far this year, I'm 21-9, but have cooled off after a hot start. Lets get it moving again!
Carson Wentz Is Gutsy & Deserves More Respect | Dodgers - Rays Is Going To Be An Excellent World Series, Can Kershaw Get It Done? | The Dallas Debacle
On this episode of The Chase Down Podcast, Chase Senior explains why he's so excited for the World Series between the Dodgers and Rays, two of the most forward thinking organizations in the world. We also nervously await another Clayton Kershaw World Series. The Dallas Debacle. Why goodness the Cowboys look like an unprepared, poorly coached team. Finally, Carson Wentz is gutsy and the dude is a baller. When evaluating his play, you can't just look at the box score. No quarterback is putting up with what Wentz is dealing with. The team is falling apart around him, yet he keeps fighting.
Tom Brady and the Buccaneers lay the smack down on Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. What a week for the Titans, crushing the Bills, then outdueling the Titans. Ryan Tannehill is a MVP candidate? The Steelers show the Browns who runs the AFC North. Is it time to take the Bears for real? Carson Wentz nearly leads an epic comeback. Phillip Rivers had the guns drawn and led the Colts back. All that and more. Enjoy!
