NFL, Vic Fangio, Football discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
Doesn't see it at all in the NFL. I disagree with that. I thought it was a little tone. Deaf. I imagine it was a topic on your show. What are your thoughts on it? My my thoughts are in context I understand what he's saying that the NFL's talk, and for you to get an opportunity to play in the NFL. You gotta earn it like everything you've gotta earn it, and it's that way inside a locker room. It's that way you don't from player to player. We know that it doesn't matter what color your skin is where the background is where you went to school. It doesn't matter if you went to a little school EDYTA. Idaho, or whether with Uber She Alabama. If you can play, you're gonNA. Get the opportunity to play. That's how it works inside the locker room, and that's how it works. You know from the WHO the coaches pick to to play. Now Remember Vic Fangio's be coaching for forty two for forty years forty plus years. I think thirty two of the NFL and like he's been a coordinator for twenty plus years in the NFL one of the best coordinators gist got his first opportunity to be a head coach last year, so he's been passed over a million times. Himself, so I mean I look at it more like conceptually. He's talking about your opportunity to get on the playing field. He understands you know. He understands that there is some racism. There is some some issues. At least the NFL has dealt with it, or at least try to deal with it, maybe not perfectly, obviously not, but at least they've acknowledged in are trying to do things to. To to fix, know not that you'll ever fix everything, but at least try so i. look at it more of a context issue young. Vic Fangio's old school. That way and there's some there's been plenty of thanks. He said as adcose with Denver broncos that have gone over exceptionally well with people inside the organization, and and that's part of. That's part of the charm of VIC. Fangio is like he's GonNa say what's on his mind, but e context I think it was more about your opportunity on the football field and play as a player. A couple minutes left. How good a shape! Could you be in today as an NFL player with not as like I. Think of you as a lifter i. Could jog around the neighborhood or have a treadmill, but like how good of shape could you have been in with no Ta's and camps pushback. I think it's really hard. Calm. The only thing that you can do to get yourself in shape to play football to play football so regardless you're gonNA. You're going to be able to create a baseline of being in shape, but the kinesthetic we go into the kinesthetic awareness, the the the pro reception skills of one guy against another guy. You don't push it on people doing all those things that can only be replicated through playing football, and so anytime you go into training camp. Camp you're not. GonNa be in quote. Unquote football shape until you start actually playing football and in today's game, even in the OTA's. They can't do that anymore. Because you're not allowed, you know. We circumvented the rules. When I played like there was, it was a full go full-contact no pads in and if he didn't like it. You don't have to be here. That's the way it worked. It's different today. Right so I think that nobody really is shaped when they get to camp. In include football shape, and less so today than than back in my day, so I think it's exceptionally up and now that the came out with a we're not gonNA have these joint practices anymore that that's not gonNA happen it makes it that much more difficult for these teams to really get themselves ready to play this upcoming season bought by forty five seconds here. How many things are open in Denver are restaurants where you guys at? Were just outside of Denver. So. We're in the BURBS but. Like, everything restaurants have opened, but it's more limited seating limited capacity, only fifty percent of capacity, and most of it is outdoor type seating right now. Also there are a lot of things that are open. Still they're still the masks in the suggested fast, and all those things that are being required a you know pretty much required to go into grocery stores and restaurants in those things, but things are slowly opening up here in Denver stuff mark have a great weekend and rest of your week. I'm off tomorrow. I'm going to hang out and do some hiking and whatever I do, but go xenia. Take Care All right March Sarah. Yeah it's. We opened up in our little town for like a day and then it closed down again. Because of the protests, so you know towns are. So. It's been a rough few months for.
