Joy Taylor is joining me joy so we get through get through three hours today. We get through another week of no games. And we're somehow we're getting through this. Yesterday was fun. Getting through. We're thriving we are having honey and we have a very special segment today that we tease lots which I'm super excited for you mentioned. I haven't mentioned in an hour and a half. We have a segment that I think is really fun. You can play along and I'll talk about that more next hour but that's coming up next hour. Let me start with this. You know the Brett Farve Aaron Rodgers Drama Brett. Farve is going out and just acknowledging you know. Hey listen errands not happy. I talked to him but Mike Freeman a bleacher. Report is a reporter and he covers a lot of NFL and he had something yesterday according to an AFC coach. Green Bay drafted Utah. State quarterback Jordan love in the first round to send Aaron Rodgers. The message quote. We run this not you unquote multiple executives and coaches around. The League agreed. Now that's interesting right. That feels green. Bay's compensating for something right. I mean just Kansas City. Feel the need to tell Patrick Mahomes. Hey we run this place. No they empower does does New Orleans feel a need to send a message to their highest paid. Most important player drew brees. Hey drew we run this place? No it's a weird. It's a weird message right. I mean Big Ben. All that draw steelers like no. No no no. We support Big Ben all the way. Seattle traded guys who anonymously criticized Russell Wilson Tampa Bay. This draft is already picking people that they think Tomlin's so why would green bay need to push back on Aaron? Let me ask you anybody watching or listening to parent. When do you as parents have to reestablish? Who's in control when you get when you have a curfew in your son or your daughter blows through it? You then need to with that little bit of friction with your kids. I don't have to do it much. I got good kids but every once in a while. Dad has to reestablish who runs this joint. Who's paying the bills? Who's feeding you? That's when parents have to reestablish when there's been pushback so let's think about this so Greg Cosell has come on my show. I'd say at least four five times and said Aaron Rodgers Ad Libs out of successful place doesn't listen to coaching two years ago. Mike McCarthy joy just started on the show I think when we started noticing a trend that Aaron led the NFL in throwaways. Basically a middle finger. Mike McCarthy this place stupid I'm not going try it I'm GONNA throw it out of bounce so Sometime this week could have been yesterday day before a rich. Eisen had Greg Cosell on Cosell and Greg doesn't Care Greg watches tape. Greg's been saying what he said yesterday four years and when the parents reestablished control when they get pushed back and here. Is Greg cosell either yesterday or the day before? What you want about Aaron Rodgers? He's super talented. We know that he'll be a hall of Famer. But Aaron Rodgers over. The last number of years has evolved or one could say devolved into a player that plays a lot outside of structure and outside of rhythm. And when you get a chance to watch the coaching tape as I do and this is not an interpretation. This is what the tape tells you. He leaves a lot of throws on the field. Within the timing of the offense that are there to be thrown and I guarantee that that bothers mental floor and given the age of Rogers. And who knows how long. I can play the age of Rogers and mental a floor clearly coming last season having probably pretty much carte blanche at this point. I think he's looking to say. I'm going to start to put this offense together the way I wanted to look and will rogers great. I'm a little frustrated with the way our offense plays out and That's just my personal opinion again but I feel pretty strongly about that Erin created this. Aaron has pushed back. Errands been uncomfortable. Aaron leads the NFL and throwaways. So Matt Leflore gets him and says we got we got throws here in our offense earns now. Megan him and he can make. He's talented enough. So why does Green Bay need to reestablish we run this place because drew brees does not ad Lib his way at a completions or Sean Payton would bench? Him and Tom Brady does not ad. Lib his way out of ballot. Check and Josh. Mcdaniels offense once again. Aaron Rodgers does so as he's portrayed as a victim Greg Cosell says look at the tape and for the record cosell said this. I think three years ago have been four. We ran the tape a dozen times. We kept going back to this. Great was like there's plays open. Aaron just won't airlines to do his own thing so very interesting because I think the idea that you need to establish we run this place. I'm like why why nobody else does that. But no other quarterback does what Aaron does the same reason occasionally very occasionally. I have to reestablish dad runs the house. So here's your curve for you. Hit It okay. Here's the rules. You gotTA clean the dishes. Hit It if you don't for about three days straight time to reestablish so I think I don't think it's a crazy theory cosell's on it again and this is Matt Leflore said Timeout Bro. I'm not going into a second year with you. Just do in your own stuff. Nope our offense our franchise. So what are the advantages? Let Me Segue to this of having power and money and being lucrative is facebook can kind of do what facebook wants. They don't have to rely on others Amazon. Can kind of do what Amazon wants? I saw this story. Sec football's very good best conference easily in College Football SEC commissioner. Greg Sankey said yesterday quote. If there's a couple of programs aren't able to play. Does that stop everybody? Mom Not sure it. Does we just want to stay connected and remain important? He went on to say he doesn't know if all eleven states that represent the. Sec will be on board. But he thinks they will and they're going to have a college football season and it got me thinking there's a hundred and thirty college football programs. They're small schools their state schools. There's there's independence there's you know there's there's there's all sorts of there's there's gigantic programs. There's there's barely making it programs. There's naval the Naval Academy. Not all of them. All one hundred thirty are going to be able to play college football. I mean if if you're a program Newark New Jersey or New York. You're dealing with something entirely different. The State of California our governor very liberal does not care about football especially college football the SEC doesn't need anybody else. It's a cell stain to self sustaining business. The SEC is big enough rich of powerful enough and interesting enough. Screw everybody else. We're going to have football season. You guys do whatever you want. We don't need the PAC twelve. We don't need the big. We don't need the big ten. Frankly we roll our eyes anyway the last twenty years the sec just have their season. You're gonNA tell me you won't watch. Let's be honest about it. Lsu Amazon Bama Auburn's on Florida's Georgia's on. You're not GonNa Watch. Can you imagine the ratings for SEC football if they're the only conference on Saturday they'll be massive in the already? Are That College. Football has a history of independence. Notre Dame is overwhelmingly independent. Byu independent unlike the NFL where most offenses look the same in college. Football Team Two team school to School Conference the conference the offense is wildly different the SEC could simply say we're just gonNA have a season. We're all GONNA play each other nine ten games have an SEC championship. We run the sport anyway and remember the SEC. Is the one conference that I think does not wanNA play in the spring so there have been suggestions serious suggestions that you can move college football to January February March the SEC does not want that. Why because the SEC has the most NFL level athletes why would an NFL level college football player playing March? Bang up as knee and not be able to get healthy three weeks later for the combine so the SEC knows we got seventy sixty NFL guys in this Conference Bama Auburn Lsu Florida Georgia. They got a lot. We do not want to be playing in March. No Way guys get hurt. They can't get healthy for the combine. So you're GONNA have a lot of kids in the SEC. Why God's name I gotTa Plan March the drafts in April combines in March. So they're the one conference has no interest in that spring stuff and we know this that college football's got a history of independent thinking an independent operating the. Sec doesn't need anybody else you think they care about the PAC twelve. They laugh at the PAC twelve. You'd think they'd care about the big ten. They roll their eyes even at Ohio state. So I think this very interesting if you look at a footprint of the SEC states. You've got mostly conservative. Governors mostly conservative governors. Who are going to be on board schools opening up vanderbilt. I'll keep my eye on but we have one hundred and thirty college football programs. A school in New York or around New York or in California between the governor and and the virus levels could be totally different than a southern state. Who Haven't been hit as heavily cases? So I I look at that and I think to myself the. Sec is laying the groundwork we're playing and we don't need you. It's almost like international soccer. The English premier league. It's so big so popular so lucrative they could just say we're just GONNA run our league. We don't care about anybody else. I mean that's already self contained anyway but like when you get that big and that strong powerful that lucrative and that interesting who does the SEC need. They don't care about anybody else.
