NFL, Falcons, Football discussed on CBS Sports Radio
Make sure that you are taking us with you wherever you go. I love it being able to have it with you. Eight five five two one two four CBS is the number. Sometimes winning is losing what I'll explain Gary and rocky top Tennessee joins us next that Gary is rocky top Tennessee, actually, a place. Yeah. Actually, you know, we were afraid to Knoxville's rocky topic. I know that I know that there's actually a town close to Knoxville they changed his name to rocky top. So there. Basil. Rocky top. Yeah. Here's a couple of questions about these meals. Bogies? First of all, we love you here. Lock it out, by the way. Thank you, buddy. All these names released ridiculous sponsors, do they still them for NASCAR. That's my first question that could be you know, what it might be. I don't know where the sponsors come from. And I look it's great. If people wanna play bowls just don't tell me that there any good their lousy game. These are lousy teams playing in lousy gates. But the college football writers, they try so desperately to convince you 'cause they're dying for content. They're like, oh, these games are great look at this football. It's so great to have football. It's like it's like watching peewee football. It's terrible. Hey, here's the second question. Now. Let's go, let's suppose, you're the middle linebacker for middle Tennessee State university and the highlight of your sports career, your sports five fifty right about someday to your grandchildren is that you got the pain Dunkin donuts buy one get one free bowl, and you may to tackles during that both your view as a human have you had the human being failed in life. If that's a no, no, no. You know, what you are at that point? Thanks for your call, buddy. And we love you. We love rocky top to hear your know what you are at that point is your Al Bundy. You're Al Bundy. And if you didn't watch married with children, you know, the fabulous Ed O'Neill, your Al Bundy at that point. If the highlight of your sports career is I had a four tackle game in the point Setia bowl, by the way points Setia. Poinsettias? Anthony, what are those red flowers at Christmas? I can tell you John. What is it there a sign of love their poinsettias, though? Oh, I don't know the name. Well, I keep hearing points set. I'm not a big flower guy. You're not a big flower guided, by the way, if you have if if anyone you know has a cat. Or a dog don't get them appoint center because they are this is our poisonous really their poisonous. If they would if like if a if a cat went to town on a point city it could kill the cat. Now. I'm not telling people if you don't like cats to bring over point SETI and wipe out the cat. Yes. So don't miss the point and cats dogs, though, I will not get the person's name on the air because I love them. And I'm going to that I know of someone who spent like four thousand dollars to try to save their sweet seriously. And because they bought these flowers is that report Setia poisoning. And they spent like four thousand dollars to save the cat. And now you want the punchline of the story. I do it wasn't their cat. They were cat sitting all really. And they were trying to save the life of this cat that they were cat sitting. And it ended up with like a four thousand dollar realized cat is alive the cat's alive. So that's the great story. Okay. Anybody who thinks it's a bad story about like poisoning cats the cat's alive. Did they realize they poisoned the cat though? They realized that what it was from. But it was the cat sitters who poisoned the cat or with the cats that are now the cat sitters had poinsettias brought them over though. Now, they had them at their house and the cat was being sat at their place. Wow. Oh boy. Yeah. Not good. Now that good you don't want a four thousand dollar Bill Christmas. Now. Now, you don't really wanted someone else's. Own cat. But for someone like you said, you're just really dumb. I think I have I I'm not sure, but I may have waited for the for the cats expire, I may have I'm not saying that I would have. But I may have sometimes losing is winning. And it's the situation I'm in as a fan today. I saw my team win the Super Bowl last year. Some really happy. In fact, it's this year was this calendar year. It just seems like it was twenty five years ago. But. Sometimes winning is losing. And not winning meaningless games. Today. Like my eagles play the Rams. There's no reason to win this game. And there's no reason to win next week's game against Houston. For the Atlanta Falcons three games to go horrendous season for the falcons playing playing absolutely terrible football playing the Arizona Cardinals today in a home game. Then honestly, if you put two falcons tickets underneath your windshield, wipers this morning outside Mercedes Benz stadium. You're gonna come back later and there's going to be four. Nobody wants to watch the falcons play the Arizona Cardinals. Now if my kid was misbehaving in school. I might take her down. There maker just watch four quarters of it. That'll teacher start acting right behavior. There's no reason for the falcons, why are you? Why would you even want to win? Why would you want to win another game? Now, I promise you professional athletes are tanking. Whenever I hear about tanking in the NFL. It's preposterous. Tanking in the NBA is a different animal because of the fact that the manipulation the actual manipulation of a coach with five guys on the court what they can do. In the NFL. You're not getting a bunch of guys to throw a game or do something like that. That's not happening. You get too many guys with pride too many guys that want to win and they're worried about where the next paychecks come from because they only get sixteen games to show what they're about. So it's going to be a bit of an issue for them. They're they're gonna they're gonna be trying. They're going gonna be trying really hard. And if you are a fan of the eagles fan of the falcons there are other teams in the same boat. Sometimes you win by losing. And yes, this is going to be one of the deepest defensive drafts in the history of the NFL, and I believe by the time February and March comes around people will be telling you this is the deepest defensive draft. They've ever seen. Do you want to be waiting for other people to make their move before you make your move or you cosmetically trying to win games in a season? That's already lost. Genn birds of prey like the eagles the falcons you stunk this year. Do you really what are you really really wanting to win? Is that what you wanna do? You really want to be down the draft board more. See you got to wait. And you got to watch other people make their choices. Or maybe do you wanna pick from the four best defensive players available or do you want to pick from the two of the remaining for best defensive players available saying it always goes in order that the guy taken I is the best. But wow. Meaningless games, try to Padua record the care about that. Or not. You're trying to win championships. That's what it's about for an NFL franchise. Think of what helps you get to that goal faster? And if you're smart, you know, what I just said that losing sometimes is winning Elissa roses with us. Eliza. I won't apologize. My finger button pushing sometimes gets a little haywire. So glad to have you. Glad to have your board this morning. Thanks so much. I'm excited to be here. And a Sunday ahead. You I heard you got up at two thirty eight dead and two thirty Anthony, what's how do you get up? Get up. How do you get up to do this show? I woke up today I woke up at two o'clock today. So I wake up at four thirty five is I'm pretty close to the studios. That's that's a little bit different to be on the quick elicit. You're gonna find out that the JK show doesn't require that kind of preparation. You're gonna fuck you're gonna find out is I heard you went to bed at three thirty yesterday. So and I'm only a ten minute Uber from. But like give myself time to wake up in my surroundings and be able to type in c thinks me longer than others. Okay.
