Listen: Chiefs, Football And Tony Dorsett discussed on Early Morning Praise with Larry Tinsley
"So the chiefs, of course are still adjusting to life without Kareem hunt. I don't think Kelvin Benjamin is going to be the answer. But he did you sign with the chiefs. But now they've got to face. This ravens defense defense and special teams and the run game for the ravens is the key to their resurgence now putting themselves back into this playoff conversation. In fact, be one of the AFC playoff teams right now they've got this three game win streak. And of course, Lamar Jackson, the rookie QB. He is not that much different in age from batmobiles. But in terms of the experience said, it's a different animal. He got the road win in Atlanta. Right. So there was a kind of stick your in the water, but Atlanta, not the same as Arrowhead stadium and the chiefs and their fans is one crazy atmosphere there I've been there. It's phenomenal. It's where my favorite places to watch a football game. True home field advantage. So how will the rookie quarterback handle it? He says he's going to be making a lot of hand signals with his offensive lineman. They're just going to take it a snap at a time. He'll rely upon them. But he's heard it's really loud. That's what he said. I've heard it's really loud. And that defense, of course, they can keep the home the field if they could run the ball, which Jackson is a big part of. But if they can run the ball, then they can control the clock, obviously, keep their defense with some fresh legs, which they'll need later. You don't wanna get into a shootout with the chiefs that does not behoove you in any way, shape or form does not behoove you to get a victory that way, it's after hours here on CBS sports radio. What's the game? You're most looking forward to we've got a poll up. It does include the ravens and the chiefs also includes the Vikings and the Seahawks and other game that could have significance in the NFC. And it's playoff picture. Eight five five two one two four two two seven. Let's go back to our phones here. Bob is listening in Pittsburgh. Welcome to after hours. Thanks for having me. I just wanted to call him out of the center and thinking of these names grown up in the seventies. Tony dorsett. I heard a million times from high school to Heisman Marino. And. Clemente best way, right before I was born. And there's a lot of history or colluding Mario. But the guy that really makes me made me attracted to sports, especially baseball. That had markers every stadium. The at home runs and was props really star joining we are family that guy was larger than life. His is. You know, his at bat you when he was coming into Barry's boxes is swing that. He would always do before to get loose. If you ever saw it and his big smile, you may think he was a big teddy bear when the ball dispassionate. That's neat. That's a cool memory. I don't know. There's a lot of issue there. That's something that you you look at him. And you and you say that guy truly brought me into all sports. But especially baseball awesome. Well, I appreciate that. Bob. Thanks so much for sharing that memory. It's after hours here on CBS sports radio eight five five two one two four seven just got this tweet from any. She says those great Steelers teams in the seventies made me a football fan. They went from a really bad team to a great one remember jumping up and now with my mom after the immaculate reception. Are awesome. So essentially what I'm asking you in light of the fact that today is Larry bird's birthday. And he's pretty much. The reason why I am wearing my in my career. He was the catalyst for all of it. When I was growing up in New Hampshire. Masking you who's the athlete or the team the memory of that kind of sucks you in and turns you into a sports fan for better or for worse. I let's see Ian says here are a few.

I mean, he before he he went away to prison for the dogfighting, and the cruelty charges the animal, we all know about that. We're not gonna forget.
