Listen: Khalil Mack, Green Bay, Aaron Rodgers discussed on Joe Giglio
"All right. So keeping sort of your assessment of some of the best in the National Football League. Who's the best defender in the NFL right now? I know there's a lotta great guys. But who's the top NFL defensive player from your perspective AJ hawk? Good question. Who's your first off? What do you want a bears fan? But I'm gonna clear max. Okay. Okay. Probably Aaron Donald right? I mean there because have a bears fan. So it's you know, it's like it's like if you ask a Green Bay Packers fan like a bunch of my relatives. Who's the best quarterback? They have to say Aaron Rodgers even though it's the right answer. It's required. So that's what I'm doing with Khalil. Yeah. As a guy that played nine years in Green Bay. I guess it should be tough for me to say quilt mackinaw. I'm going to go. All right. I really am. I just. Yeah. I mean, obviously what he did in that first game of the season. You saw the kind of impact he can have for that team. That's going to trickle down the second. I think the energy the juice that he brings to the field. But he gets consistent with that. I I love everything about Khalil Mack to where he is such a rare talent that doesn't come around very often. But there's no there's no off the field stuff. There's no teams like he has it all is all the boxes check. As my dad is buddies would say, they're stupid football cliches, like he has no issues. Like normally when a guy has crazy amounts of talent and can affect the game. I can sometimes they have other things you have to deal with the headaches that you'll put up with it. But clearly has none of that seems to be a great team guy that everyone loves being around and they kind of rally around him. So yeah, I'll take him to hear. Here on the show. So in that in that vein. We've talked a lot about on the show AJ because I'm a bears the produces the show Stewart Kovacs to a raiders fan. And we're in very different perspectives of our happiness with organizations. What did you just make of? And do you make of John gruden's approach, and obviously so far it's been largely defined by Khalil Mack becoming a Chicago bear. I guess we just have to wait and see if they could turn those two first round picks into something into to franchise type cornerstone players, and if they can have success in the next year the following year like this year who knows me another tax on close battles. They could rebound VR. Right. But I think it's too early to really say exactly what the raiders are going to be. But I I just don't know regimen. Bridget MacKenzie who's the GM there? I spent multiple years in Green Bay with in the front office there to it. And who knows who's running decisions have more of the power to Reggie have more of the power. I know there's been reports on how they scout players differently, which is normal. I mean, everybody kinda evaluate players in their own way. But I just wonder how it's all gonna play out and who was gonna win when they finally make all these kind of decisions AJ hawk really appreciate the time. And see this is like Packers a Packer fan Packer. Great and a bears fan like me get along. I can say nice things about Aaron Rodgers. You could say the nice thing about Khalil Mack work. We're bringing the bringing America gather AJ. Yes. The best part is you you may have told me fourteen times or your bears fan during this call. I didn't forget, buddy. Hey, thanks. Thanks for being on the show. It was great stuff. Really? Appreciate the time. I'm a bears fan. But. Trump. Thanks, brother. Oh, that's funny. Dog here on the program. Long time. I have a bears fan, buddy. My dad lived in Green Bay, my family did for awhile and dad through business had a like a luxury suite is office did and he's to show up every day at Lambeau in bear stuff. And there were two giant guys who just glare at him. And it turned out. It was Brett farve brothers. He was sharing a luxury suite. And he was telling them to around the family. All right. Let's keep it roll. Let's keep it going Stewart Kovacs my God. My do the executive producer has been working all day, blood, sweat, and tears. Bring you five things you need."
