On today’s episode, Jason and Super Producer Rob G (Robert Guerra) get the party started with a deep dive into Lamar Jackson’s obscene tweet in the aftermath of the Baltimore Ravens’ disappointing loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jackson is clearly frustrated, and he’s young so we’re going to give him a pass for the tweet. However, given that this wasn’t the first time the Ravens lost a game they should’ve won and Jackson’s overall numbers aren’t all that impressive, is it fair to say the critics were right to say he’s not worth the fully-guaranteed contract he’s been seeking? Sticking in the AFC, backup Mike White put on an absolute show in his first game starting in place of Zach Wilson. So you would think J-Mac would be giddy as a kid in a candy store, right? Wrong. The fact remains that White carved a porous Chicago Bears defense and it would be unfair to all parties involved to declare him a clear upgrade over Wilson after one game. Let’s let this thing play out first before we crown White. Moving over to the NFC, the tense relationship between Kliff Kingsbury and Kyler Murray seems to be at a boiling point now that Kyler has publicly ripped his coach’s scheme. We’ve been trying to tell y’all for weeks that Kliff and Kyler weren’t on good terms and now it seems more likely than not that they’re headed for a divorce. Speaking of divorce, could Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers be headed for Splitsville after the season as well? At some point, the Packers have to see what they have in Jordan Love, right? We all thought that when Rodgers got hurt in the Packers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles that it might allow Green Bay to start Love for the rest of the season… until Rodgers came out and said that he’s going to keep playing so long as his MRI comes back clean. Rodgers obviously won’t step aside willingly so the Packers are probably going to have to trade him if they want Love to take over; do they have the stones to do it? We’ll find out soon enough. Finally, J-Mac closes the show with a very special Monday Night Football edition of the Best Bet.
