Jimmy Garoppolo, Tony Rome, Ross Tucker discussed on WFAN Sports Radio_FM Show
For me lately? Business and I know that I've known that my whole career One of things you gotta watch got going to do it again, So can't be satisfied with just doing one Chicago every season. I keep going at it. Just one of those things. You gotta roll with the punches. Um, whatever, not do you present yourself. You gotta be ready to take advantage of it. That's kind of what I've done going my entire career and that's why I keep doing so. It's not like my dad's not gonna be handed to me. I'm gonna be handed anyone in this week. Start. You gotta go in there and work that applies to the world That is gonna be hands than anybody in this world. That's always a smart mantra of life. There's a Childress about what? How he says that you know what I mean. It's kind of like Yeah, it is what it is. You know, I understand it. I'm not upset about this. I'm not. I'm not Carson wincing this like when? When Jalen hurts, took his job. I understand it, and he kind of has to And his seven seasons BT he started 16 games one time Now that time was the Super Bowl season for the Sam Cisco 40 Niners, But I mean, since he became, let's they say the guy In in in San Francisco, He started three games 16 in six games. That's it, and he was there. Obviously 2017 after the after the after the trade. And he only started five games that year. But it was five and Oh, right, so it's just kind of. It's hard to like, feel bad for him for not getting his opportunities because he hasn't always been available, and that's the most important skill that you could be. Have for a team is we've always heard just be available. He hasn't been that way. If you're out on the field, you don't have any value. We all know that I got you, but I want to go back to what you said before about how you know he's seemingly okay with it, And they said peace I think it's the opposite. I mean, I'm not gonna I'm not gonna lean too much on inflection or words, though he does strike the proper balance on both. But I think it's the opposite for Jimmy. Because He's been He's three yards from being a Super Bowl champion. And quite conceivably, the Super Bowl M v P and, you know every every time he gets A little. A chance, not a little, but a chance to car about. This is undeniable. You know, NFL legacy, even though I'm not saying all time, great but a truly defined like stamp his career. His knee buckles or something happens Now there's what he's healthy, but now that it's all right now we got the new guy. I think it's the opposite. I think that Jimmy doesn't wake up every day feeling that it's okay if it ended. I think Jimmy wakes up every day, saying Man I am. I am as motivated as ever to to prove to the dissenters. And there's some if not many, that that I am. What people thought I was three years ago. Yeah, but what makes you say that? Because you don't You don't think competitors? Yeah, but I mean, but the reality is he just he hasn't been available around hasn't played This is what it is. Doesn't mean that he's okay with it doesn't mean he's not Jason. It doesn't It doesn't desperately needed or wanted for his own competitive soul. True, But when I hear him say, Yeah, trey lands because coming in, I'm gonna do all I can to mentor him. Yeah, Tom Brady men toward me, and it was a good relationship. It's almost like saying yeah, I understand. This kid's gonna take my job and I'm okay with it. I don't know. I remember this person. This is this is personal to me because they did giant drafted Ron Dayne in the first round, right in 2000 and deservedly cell because I also was hurt a lot, and it's a different position, so it's not really apples to apples here, but I remember when he drafted Ron Day, and the first thing that I was saying was, this is gonna be great for me because it's gonna force me to tea get better. And you know, I want to win my job. I wanna Be that guy that that's that's my instinct was my instinct when I hear Jimmy Garoppolo saying Yeah. You know, I'm gonna help you get better on mentor him that it's kind of feels like he's resigned. T the fact that he's not the guy anymore in San Francisco, and I don't. I mean, I guess I guess it's okay if it works for him. Works for the 40 Niners. It'll be all right, but I don't know I I don't I don't see that ultra competitiveness. When I hear a guy say that I don't think it would have gone to the league without that. Also competitive this coming from where he came from. Yeah, I mean, Jimmy Garoppolo wasn't a slouch. I know he would. Do you know who it was, I know, but he was sick and he was a second round pick. It's not like he was like, 1/5 round pick. I got it. He was picked 62nd overall by the by the by the by the The Patriots, right? And Yeah, he sternal annoys a tiny school, but they've had some pretty damn good quarterbacks come out of there, including Tony Rome. Oh, in a coach and Sean paid so Yes, The expectations probably weren't elite when he came to the door and patriot because of who he was sitting behind. In fact, I don't even remember him being drafted in the second round and full disclosure when he was drafted me and all of a sudden we heard this. This this brouhaha. A couple of years in the Tom Brady was kind of, you know, feeling some angst with his backup quarterback. I was like, Who the heck is Jimmy? Glad I don't know that kid. And then you start the look that guy, he's actually pretty good in college, Just second round pick. Okay. Now I see why Tom Brady's a little bit upset about this, but I don't know. I don't. I don't know where his drive is to be that guy. Maybe it's internal, but I haven't heard it haven't heard him say those things. Which makes me think he's okay with what's happening to him in San Francisco. Let me read this. This is totally different. Just so this sweet from Schefter, and this is why the NFL stinks. All right. On some level, it's the best, but it's It's brutal. So Broncos offensive tackle Juwan James suffered a season ending tort Achilles. Good. That's terrible. Yep, toward Achilles, working out today away from the team facility. James is $10 million salary for the upcoming season is now in jeopardy. Being that Denver is no longer obligated to pay him working out off site non football related injury, even though it's clearly is a football related injury. And then Ross Tucker, our buddy quote, tweeted what Schefter wrote. You wrote brutal. If this happens in the facility, he gets all 10 mil..
