    Measuring Manoah + Real or Early Edition with Charles Davis!

    JD Bunkis kicks off the new week with his thoughts on Alek Manoah's latest performance on Saturday, before questioning how he can possibly be fifth in the AL CY Young odds this year and if his 2022 could potentially be one of the best seasons from a starter in franchise history (1:27)? JD then previews the upcoming series against the Yankees with Josiah Bosch & Pete Walker, and asks if they would want to see Aaron Judge break the AL home run record in Toronto. The trio then share their best best ahead of Monday Night Football, brought you by DraftKings (15:34 )! Later on, NFL on CBS analyst Charles Davis joins JD to help break down everything we saw from Week 3 in the NFL! They then play a game of "Real or Early?", where they question: if the Dolphins are contenders, the top dogs in the AFC West, if Russell Wilson is past his prime, if the end near for Tom Brady, and if the Eagles are the best team in the NFC ( 21:12)?
