"That's pretty good to take whatever the best defense in the league. But why all these guys and you've put so much work into making this big board but one last question wanna ask. You is what that process looked came out. Great and i'm curious to. I mean what would that look i mean. Obviously i know you're passionate before this benami. Everyone knows might seem that. You put all his efforts to bay boyd. How that'll take shape What would that look like. Yeah so i think for me like this is my first year covering the rockets. Just in general i mean. I've always been a fan. I've always done analytics. Projects on the side by as my minor at syracuse always watched games league pass on that stuff like i never really dove into into the value. Add part of it though of just like creating content once the rockets sucked which like hasn't been a thing for me in in my like time as a rockets fan. I mean we had like oh nine through twelve ten years old. I wasn't going do anything at that time. And i love. Kevin martin aaron brooks so like i was. I wasn't upset about any of that but this year. The rockets weren't good so dove into the draft law I think it started with the g. League a win the drive. My timeline correct. I mean i watched like march madness and stuff like that scouted for march madness. 'cause i was around the same time as sbc draft academy when me and you both did that but in the as well. Because the rockets down kevin porter jr. engage a martin watching them and i started watching the night loved. Jalen green loved Mingo loved isaiah todd. Dacian knicks is cool. Like all four of them were very very fun to watch. And i was like okay. Lemme like really dive into this draft. And kinda see like all these other guys because if dacian knicks is not a guy that should get drafted by some for some people like who are these other. Is you know or if like isaiah tie and like jonathan coming. I'm like oh man like there's all this like awesome talent. Coming into the league star watching law like a lot more really paid. Like i only had really paid attention to acc because the syracuse and also i would just watch ut games and my university houston game. So i knew players. I didn't really know like who's coming into the draft and who's in what draft class and stuff like that by kind new players then once. I really like dove into it. Started watching film star watching. You know even though like you. I b l. game from like years back watching old interviews workouts. Whatever i love the process. It was a lot of me just sitting where i am right now looking at my computer a lot of headaches and long nights and slamming my keyboard going. This is hard because it is. It's such a hard process..

"What's up layup lovers. Who is your favorite player. The had an amazing two to three or stretch and then just fell off. Maybe it was due to injury or maybe they just stopped being as effective. My mind instantly goes to gilbert arenas and as a bulls fan ben. Gordon had a stretch where he could score on anybody interested to hear who comes to mind for you guys thanks. That's from adam in nashville. Maybe he's a predators fan li but tests. You answer this one first favourite player. That just was like awesome for two to three or window. Nashville sticking in tennessee. With this news. About penny hardaway sticking to stay in memphis and coach thereafter flirting a little bit with the orlando magic and their head coaching position. I'm with penny back in the ninety s. It's a little bit of a cheat. Because obviously he fell off because of injuries. You know it's a little like grant hill. You know that kind of thing but penny obviously was so so so so so so so so good and he could have been magic with shaquille o'neal pun intended at the first injury slowed him down. He was twenty seven to four and then he came back and then he was still good. You know he's still around like sixteen seventeen points a game and then the second injury slowed him even down more and then he was just sort of a role player after that. He's a little shaun livingston. Ask after that but damn he was phenomenal. Toss us you know it's not it's not a gilbert arenas which is a really good one where he was on top of the league and then just kind of flamed out injuries stop guilty. Penny was just more special than anything. I actually love the mention of ben gordon. I think that's a solid one. Aaron brooks is another guy to me that as a strange one to look back at his career he was twenty ten. Most improved player averaged like nineteen point. Nine points per game not bad. He was the sixth player in nba history. To make over two hundred. Three's over four hundred assists in a single season. He did it before steph curry. But aaron brooks was just kind of a little guy so his career didn't last for a super long time kind of moved into the super sixth man role. Eventually but aaron brooks was like an early rockets guy that they kind of just cut loose and say run a ton of pick and rolls. Shoot the ball. A lot at worked out for aaron brooks maybe. It was a bit of a proof of concept to say. Hey we're going to become a pick and roll team here in the future. Eventually they got james harden. We know the rest of that story Lee mine's probably the touch. More than that. It's the four to five years. But it's a guy i try love. I love as well as joking. Noah really i mean he had five seasons there where he was really good. My the all star game twice defensive player of the year free fourth in mvp voting one-season. That's just how good he was but then it pretty quickly fell off actually after that. Second all star game use only twenty eight and then he really tight off. After that dropped his average to below ten points a game and obviously he was tried ordered and try was signed as a free edge by the knicks. That's certainly didn't work out. Had a cup of coffee with the grizzlies last year. And then the clippers but we for a couple of years there. He was a really really good player but really it was just a four or five year. We thought he was really good. These first couple of seasons. He wasn't all that he was. I but then sort of found a way to be effective without having the pretty shot in the world came really good but then kinda just drifted off. Unfortunately so i'm going to go with no okay. I got really into basketball in the mid nineties. A big part of it was playing fantasy basketball again with my buddy can way back in the day just going into high school and doing it ourselves. This sort of pre internet pre yahoo sports. Espn and all that you had to do it manually. And i just remember. Two players were really good. Bigs like a three to four year window like right at that time where one vin baker who is like an all star for like three or four years. I think four years. He made it in a row three with milwaukee and i think one was seattle. He was awesome especially as a fantasy player because he gave you a steel and a block to and he was like at twenty ten guy and then another guy who just checked. And i was like what he only played four years in the nba. Dino raja celtics never been all star game but like flirted with twenty points per game and was like a halfway decent sort of late round fantasy. Pick so only played again for years. I think it is for the celtics. They're came over later is croatian. He's in the hall of fame. Maybe bill simmons onto something. That's because of course because of his international play. But yeah those two guys dino raja and vin baker and of course thank you struggle with alcohol and all that later in life but he was awesome. It started his career So those are my two guys. Great stuff Last email here guys know funk's crew. I have been a longtime fan and always looked for opportunities to recommend you to fellow basketball sickos. I worked for a health system in southern california and our ceo. And i are big clippers. Fans i have told him about the podcast many times but he still hadn't checked you out until today. We were driving to a meeting. And i turn the volume up because you were playing in the background. I gave a confident. You'll love these guys and was excited for him to hear your show. After five minutes. He slowly turned his head towards me and gave me a. What the hell are we. Listening to glance of confusion. I told him you guys don't usually spend seven minutes debating who the most handsome trade.

"I am a Mets fan. All right, anyway, though, Matt the floor was asked if and Raj would be on the team next year because you heard some reports that the rands showed heavy interest before making the deal for Matthew Stafford. Here is back before talking about his QB one and elope. Is QB one for the remaining future. Is that a trick question? Absolutely. There's there's no doubt about it. I mean, you're talking about the guy that is gonna win the the MVP of the league like we're not in this position without him. So, um I couldn't be happier with just not only his performance, but how he he let our football team If you remember the Schefter talking point from last week on get up. The coaching staff definitely wants him back if he wants to come back, so that falls in line there. But he said others in the organization didn't name anyone. But you would think would be Brian Goodykoontz. Right Drafted Jordan. Love maybe doesn't want Aaron Rodgers back for whatever those dumb reasons are. So let's hear from Brian Goodykoontz, who says that Rogers is the Packers quarterback. Moving forward. This year was a Special year didn't finish like we wanted to finish, but I think I think everybody's you know purely Um, you know, motivated to get back and I think like I said, I don't think there's anything that we have to do. Um, he's uh, he's our quarterback, and he's our leader. All right. So I expect the Raj to be back in 2021. Rogers has three years left on the deal. You did draft Jordan Love Not only draft him traded up to get him in the first round. So how long you planning to sit? Jordan Love, who is scheduled to join us on the show tomorrow? By the way. Right, Get it Princess. He has no problem with sitting Jordan love for multiple years before plying him. Let's listen up. I've you. Jordan has a very talented prospect that we're really excited about developing and I know that maybe that's not the norm to have quarterbacks it for for a long time, but we way certainly believe in that. Um, I go through my history here of the Rainbow Packers. Whether it was, you know, Matt, Hassle Buck and Aaron Brooks and the way we developed those guys and always feeling good about having a guy. Have some happened to Brett back in those days or even we had Matt Flynn with with when Aaron was here, that that if we needed to go to somebody else because of injury, or or anything else that we were able to do that So we believe in that this probably won't be the first time we draft a quarterback and try to develop on because we just think it's such an important part of the game. If you look at the two teams were playing for the championship this year, and the four teams that were in the final four, so to speak, and that you can understand the importance of developing quarterbacks, so We're gonna put a lot of stock into that We're gonna.

"Oh, Donald 866496 23 100 cops. I'm out here yesterday, hanging out trying to get Trying to get psyched up for the Sunday viewing schedule First day and I was wondering about you almost texted you. But then I thought, Nah, I'm gonna leave alone. Let me Joyce yesterday's game. Yeah, because I I wanted to ask you, but I just figured I'd do it today on the air. I want to tell us watching that Saints game and I'm like does co pay the Saints or is it just your brief Because I started thinking like You know, And by the way, I was actually rooting for the Falcons destination because I kind of want to see Matt, right. I like that. Ryan, and I'd like to see him do something this late in his career and and always having a tough time with this year's Falcon squad. Would you think about him in a in a gold helmet? I know. No, I know, but, you know, he's not gonna like he a mobile. Everyone's like mobile Mobile mobile. Gotta have a mobile got Matt Ryan ain't going anywhere. No way and that Ryan got destroyed yesterday to kiss up to the taste of hell stuff. I know. And I felt bad for Matt Ryan because he just took such a beating, and he couldn't get away was Brutal but anyway, so I said so yet answered that one. Do you hate the Saints? Or is it exclusive to Ah, Drew Brees. Let's start there. I don't need the same thing. All okay, So it ZTA Breeze thing you know, it's funny is, um Who was that they had used to have the Raiders had that quarterback Aaron was that guy's name? Who? Which team and he used to play for the Saints. Aaron Brooks. Okay, Aaron Brooks, However, the same like Marcus Colston and then meet him like that kid like before. Drew. Bernie's got there. The same kind of a fun team like they weren't bothering anybody, right? Yeah, I don't hate them. I didn't have a problem with him yesterday. The problem is in rooting for them now, like I know breezes coming back, So if they're winning that, it's a great. Um, I'm gonna deal with this guy and in January In February again like that could be a headache. But what I noticed in that game yesterday? It's funny that you mention this about the mobile quarterback. It's clearly not just a trend in the NFL. Well, what do you mean? He used to be like Michael Vick was the mobile quarterback right? Like you have a guy like Culpepper, who could roll out, but he was a big arm guy. Donovan McNabb could use his legs. But not in the same way that Michael Vick would. Now you've got this quarter. I mean, like, Take one look at the Carolina Panthers yesterday with P. J. Walker. He steps in and his mobility was a major factor, and he's getting guys open downfield. You senior with Taysom Hill now where they can just they can just decide. I'm gonna catch the ball. He was the leading rusher and he ran for two touchdowns. He ran for 50 yards, and he passed for 230 something yard. So you look at the mobile quarterbacks that air starting for teams in the NFL. They're tasting home with the same to go. Russell Wilson? Yeah, Murray with the Cardinals. There's probably a few more. Patrick Mahomes, I would say, is a mobile quarterback with Kansas City quarterback.

"And got shut out. Who my how the heck did that happen? I mean wh when Nagy wanted first year Khalil. Mack Double Double D Copyright Kevin Harlan and and Super Special Trubisky. Okay that what they did was coach of the year worthy knew what McVeigh did a Don Coryell reincarnate worthy outside of the final fifty five minutes at US Bank stadium where he didn't look like coach of the year. But that's a conversation for for for a separate radio show so I I understand. Those has lit two thousand twelve and four with the saints Aaron Brooks Though. But Ninety five man ray. Rhodes ten and six Mardi heimer thirteen and three with the chiefs. Yeah and Mardi get shut out. So I'm looking at this if you look back in. Nineteen ninety four both the Kansas City chiefs and the Philadelphia. Eagles finished seven and nine and they missed the playoffs. Fast forward to ninety five Marty Schottenheimer Mardi Schottenheimer Marty Schottenheimer Giardi. Modern Heimer was was coaching. The chiefs at the time however ninety four the Philadelphia Eagles coach was somebody named rich Kotite. Rich go type so used to coach the jets. He might have been the original point of contention for for robes being pissed off at coaches with clock management bow. Yeah so so I mean this is an inert shattering take. I think it's the new coach. Bob I think that ways I mean the the ten in six versus the thirteen and Farrier. That's immaterial to the standpoint that the eagles weren't good enough and newcast to come in and make plays does it team while and the thing. I do have a problem with is. They didn't even finish first in their division right. I can't remember who finished first that year but it may have been Dallas. Yeah Twelve Informs Ninety Five Super Bowl. You're the cowboys okay. So they win the Super Bowl. They have a they have twelve wins. Yeah Main Marty as thirteen railroad slides into the DMZ with ten wins against coach of year. I think it's I coach bias. Okay well first year coach by outside of his sons and e Dina Football Leagues. He potentially coached as Kevin Stefanski ever been a head coach at any level. No he is not all right so that plays into it right. It does his their talent on the roster. There's immense talent on the Ross. Does HE PROVIDE KEVIN COM? We love the call can baker play. I think he can like some guy out of the slot. Blessing them all day. What if oh? Bj stays quiet because he loves the call can be argued with all due respect to Dalvin cook and Alexander Madison. Aaron Jones Jamal Williams and the weird Boston College pick. That's three deep but Jones high end Williams behind him and whomever wherever can be argued? Nick Job Kareem Hunt. Best one two punch at running back in the NFL. That's pretty good. If if haunt is up to speed that's a force Alabama tide in Alabama offensive lineman first round. Yeah absolutely Austin Hooper tight end Atlanta in the mix. I think he was overpaid in the offseason personally. But he's productive. I'm not as financial adviser I don't care about is money.

Aaron Brooks Discuss Working as a Devops

"All right so tell us who you are and what you do Yeah my name is Ann Brooks. I'm devops engineer. Aman technically actually at a software company In in Baltimore fearless solutions. Actually black owned software company owned by a guy named delight zero And another guy who's partner in it I was in his John Foster But Yeah I saw. That's why engineer on my help. Bridge the gap between development operations. But I'm also pretty passionate about technical education so I also have started a series called a mastermind academy where I hopefully have created a scalable platform to be able to teach these topics in a way that will actually help people get jobs in the future. Dope I really WANNA go more. It's a masterminding academy and Definitely WanNa talk about devops stuff. But let's let's start with fearless because you already said something that is blowing my mind a little bit which is black on software company. Like oh absolutely what. I checked out the website before we started recording and I was telling you before like the whole software with a sole really struck struck me as like wow like even just looking at pictures of the company culture and how everything works out. It's really unlike anything that I've seen before and I've been around in tech for a minute. How did you you like hook up with feelings? How did you get started there? A great question. So you're you're definitely not wrong but So I I I grew up in county which is not that far from his is closer to DC ABC. Not that far from Baltimore. But I went to school in Baltimore College of Baltimore and after school I was working. I ended up a lot of jobs are in the DC area northern Virginia area. So I was Kinda working down there living in Baltimore and I moved down to the DC area. And then I was looking around for different things and my wife actually my wife in Baltimore and she was working on the move back to Baltimore again. So a lot of moving back and forth but As I was moving back to Baltimore decided I didn't want to make this long commute anymore. I started looking for jobs and I went on Google typed in tech companies in Baltimore and fearless popped up and actually went on the website and I saw someone that I knew there. There's a a woman named Kiera that I'm that I knew you through a mutual friend and I saw on the website and I reached out and ask questions that she had nothing but positive things to say so I applied things went well. They actually didn't get the contract that I I was supposed to be joining. Forces actually took a job in DC for the time being and then they reached back out to like hey still interested. We'd love to have you and it sounds like a great company so I took the leap and I've been there for almost three years. Now wow so really you kind of almost lucked up on it. You found it through Google search. Yup absolutely what is a regular day like for you in devops like I'm sure for people that are listening might have an idea but can you also explain just like what what is devops and why is it important. Yes so devops really is is different everywhere you go and everyone will have a different answer for but that would is supposed to be a man supposed to be bridging the gap between development lemon operations in breaking down those silos usually developers right. They're code and they toss it basically over this proverbial wall over to ops of the people who are designed were there to put this stuff out in the systems and keep running if their issues ops people toss it back and they don't really know how to code runs and things like that. It's not really a job title as it's not what you we do. More of a philosophy about how you approach a software development and solving problems. And it's really just people who are designed to create these pipelines create tools services to help developers develop as fast as they a need to assess autopsies. A normal day for me really is I do have to manage that. There's usually a pretty big focus on infrastructure management. So I do a lot of cloud computing. And I'm responsible for you know writing and codifying templates To basically deploy Amazon Masan webs services resources. So now you don't need to you no longer need to buy servers and things like that you can basically write these files That kind of describe the state of the infrastructure that you want and ship it off to Amazon and Amazon will go ahead and provision these resources for you which makes it a pretty cool. It's a lot of automation and they're making sure these processes and things that you usually do manually are done in automated fashion done in a way that no one has to kind of be hands on which should save a lot of time on really help developers move a lot faster stor. Some of sounds like it's a lot of almost behind the scenes work making sure that all the years returning and everything is running smoothly. Yeah absolutely definitely more. We're back in focused traditionally back in focused. Okay do you lead a team or are you just kind of individual contributor. I do so I I I I am the team lead eight for I'm actually work on the SBA DOT GOV projects. Let's the small business administration we manage the basically the digital footprint for the small business administration. You know we are revitalizing their tooling their website. All they're all the various backings. We have to help support small businesses. But I am not there so I ah do do more than just absolutely actually. Don't do much devops your day to day right now because I do manage the application team And I'm helping architect out the application location. There make decisions in helps setting the path for. We're going to do there okay. What does that kind of day to day? Look like is it just mostly meetings and you're not kind of in the thick of it more meetings. And before I I am very much dylan to think of it but there is definitely more meetings than before a lot of meetings that I did not expect Day to day. I'm usually you come in. We'll do our standard. We'll talk about other things that we did what we have coming up tomorrow you know. We were an agile shop. We practice Agile scrum. We do that and then it's usually a you know have some spring tasks I might have development tickets. I may be working on a we have a react a javascript node. React Front End. Maybe doing some some things with that or I may be showing up some security concerns and and updating packages and things like that or adding new architecture to the site new physical Amazon architecture to the site. Hi I'm on a daily basis but it is a lot of beatings. It's a lot of helping to clear. blockers for for developers developers run into problems helping them work through those problems and making sure for that. They have kind of the runway to be able to complete the things that they need to complete But yeah a lot more administrative things than I am used to So for people all that are listening you kind of detailed what devops is so. I think I can kind of get a sense of what the differences between software development and just doing devops or something like But you also work with designers as well is that right absolutely all of our scrum teams have general above developers devops scrum master astor designers in a Qa test engineers. What do you think designers need to know about the software development process because like you're mentioning? Agile scrum. I don't know what those things mean. I know if I talked of disasters. They'll be like what what does that. Yeah Yeah Yeah So. I've actually been fortunate to the team that we actually work with his actually pretty small our entire team is about ten people also get to work pretty closely together and this is the actually this. This position has been the first time I've ever been truly a part of the entire hire process of the software development life cycle and so what I would say developers would kind of a benefit from knowing about devops is one what would art. What the devops ethos is is again really being able to enable development so that both designers and devops engineers really have the same goal and that is too great the best product for the user our users users are the same so you know the end user was aimed but for devops the developers also our user that that's kind of our main stakeholder and when we are when I just WanNa designers are designing Having being able to be a part of that design process. I've been a part of design sprints and all kinds of design jams and things like that to be able to to actively actively run through and analyze and figure out what a proper or federal solution will be for someone design wise. That part is really important because the conversation that happens between the technical feasability of a design came really impact. How the devops engineers architect the system An implement the system so that this can be done quickly so you know if you have the opportunity to work hand in hand with your developer devops engineers can make the product much better than than you think it is and you can actually get it a lot. Astor interesting. No that's good to know because I used to. This was got maybe about over ten years ago but back when I used to work at Web. MD They really had like development and design in these two silos so like when you mentioned that wall earlier like it's a metaphorical wall. But you know like throwing doing the project kind of back and forth over it to make sure that both sides kind of have everything in Sync I just know when I was working at Web. MD and we had that process it. It was so difficult because we would get the the we would do designs or whatever then we toss it over and then the development of just toss it right back like Oh yeah. We can't Geico that you can't do that. And it's like there would be a lot of this caused a bottleneck to try to get things done. Yes it's really tough also to be able to know unless you're having that constant communication is hard to know like we aren't designers and designers. Aren't you know web developers or or or back in Asia. Nears I usually so it's tough to know the full scope of what is feasible. What can be done in the proper amount of time so like having that conversation can really help you know like? Hey maybe we maybe. The the stakeholder just needs like feedback but we just need somewhere on the page to get feedback and the designers may say super easy. We'll just throw this box over here. But because of the way that they'd be pages as I because of the components we have built. Maybe that's another ten hours of work. Where if maybe we just had a conversation maybe we could have thrown it into a component that we that already existed and we can throw a little Lincoln there on which which may be equally as effective solution? But until you have that conversation. You'll really no. Yeah so how long have you been at fearless now. I'm coming up on October. Seventeenth will be my three year anniversary. And I've never been anywhere for three years the traditional I guess millennial job hopper. I've had a lot of jobs in the past seven or eight years and usually I usually get out of there in a year year and a half times house man and this is the first time I've been

really is I do have to manage that there's usually a pretty big focus on infrastructure management so I do a lot of cloud computing and I'm responsible for you know writing and codifying templates to basically deploy Amazon Masan webs services resources so now you don't need to you no longer need to buy servers and things like that you can basically write these files that kind of describe the state of the infrastructure that you want and ship it off to Amazon and Amazon will go ahead and provision these resources for you which makes it a pretty cool it's a lot of automation and they're making sure these processes and things that you usually do manually are done in automated fashion done in a way that no one has to kind of be hands on which should save a lot of time on really help developers move a lot faster stor some of sounds like it's a lot of almost behind the scenes work making sure that all the years returning and everything is running smoothly yeah absolutely definitely more we're back in focused traditionally back in focused okay do you lead a team or are you just kind of individual contributor I do so I I I I am the team lead eight for I'm actually work on the SBA dot Gov projects let's the small business administration we manage the basically the digital footprint for the small business administration you know we are revitalizing their tooling their website all they're all the various backings we have to help support small businesses but I am not there so I ah do do more than just absolutely because I've actually don't do much devops your day to day right now because I do manage the application team and I'm helping architect out the application location there make decisions in helps setting the path for we're going to do there okay what does that kind of day to day look like is it just mostly meetings and you're not kind of in the thick of it more meetings and before I I am very much dylan to think of it but there is definitely more meetings than before a lot of meetings that I did not expect day to day I'm usually you come in we'll do our standard we'll talk about other things that we did what we have coming up tomorrow you know we were an agile shop we practice agile scrum we do that and then it's usually a you know have some spring tasks I might have development tickets I may be working on a we have a react a javascript node react front end maybe doing some some things with that or I may be showing up some security concerns and and updating packages and things like that or adding new architecture to the site new physical Amazon architecture to the site hi I'm on a daily basis but it is a lot of beatings it's a lot of helping to clear blockers for for developers developers run into problems helping them work through those problems and making sure for that they have kind of the runway to be able to complete the things that they need to complete But yeah a lot more administrative things than I am used to so for people all that are listening you kind of detailed what devops is so I think I can kind of get a sense of what the differences between software development and just doing devops or something like but you also work with designers as well is that right absolutely all of our scrum teams have general above developers devops scrum master astor designers in a Qa test engineers what do you think designers need to know about the software development process because like you're mentioning Agile scrum I don't know what those things mean I know if I talked of disasters they'll be like what what does that Yeah Yeah Yeah so I've actually been fortunate to the team that we actually work with his actually pretty small our entire team is about ten people also get to work pretty closely together and this is the actually this this position has been the first time I've ever been truly a part of the entire hire process of the software development life cycle and so what I would say developers would kind of a benefit from knowing about devops is one what would art what the devops ethos is is again really being able to enable development so that both designers and devops engineers really have the same goal and that is too great the best product for the user our users users are the same so you know the end user was aimed but for devops the developers also our user that that's kind of our main stakeholder and when we are when I just WanNa designers are designing having being able to be a part of that design process I've been a part of design sprints and all kinds of design jams and things like that to be able to to actively actively run through and analyze and figure out what a proper or federal solution will be for someone design wise that part is really important because the conversation that happens between the technical feasability of a design came really impact how the devops engineers architect the system an implement the system so that this can be done quickly so you know if you have the opportunity to work hand in hand with your developer devops engineers can make the product much better than than you think it is and you can actually get it a lot astor interesting no that's good to know because I used to this was got maybe about over ten years ago but back when I used to work at Web md they really had like development and design in these two silos so like when you mentioned that wall earlier like it's a metaphorical wall but you know like throwing doing the project kind of back and forth over it to make sure that both sides kind of have everything in Sync I just know when I was working at Web md and we had that process it it was so difficult because we would get the the we would do designs or whatever then we toss it over and then the development of just toss it right back like Oh yeah we can't Geico that you can't do that and it's like there would be a lot of this caused a bottleneck to try to get things done

"Because here's what I'm. He I mean Rodgers is getting hurt more in his later years. And you know, we just need to plan. You know, if he gets a major injury in and see who that next quarterback is to replace writers. I'm curious myself, Brian when when it's going to happen because I think the Rogers pick it it it almost felt like well somebody's gonna why is he falling is never being around. The draft is watching it and thinking to myself, how is this gonna work out? But I also been somewhat conditioned by Ron woolfe that the Packers take a quarterback. They take a quarterback, and they did it with Brunell and Aaron Brooks couple guys come to mind Matt Hasselbeck elite around draft pick. But nonetheless a quarterback and each one of those guys turned into future draft picks for the Packers. So I think the Packers are a little different situation right now in no, I don't think they're depth. That quarterback is great. I really don't positions that aren't I I'm not a big Sean ties guy at this juncture years and shown a whole lot in terms of being a viable backup in my opinion. I mean, he's gonna wonder to career interception ratio. And the sample size is getting big enough with ties her that I feel like that's more legitimate than not I think the arguments that fan. Would make saying I don't want a quarterback in the first round is very simply we've got other needs that are more important at this juncture, well, you want impact players impact players who can play and rocket right away. So I think we all understand that if knocked on wood Aaron Rodgers were were to get hurt again. And this isn't just a Packers thing. It's an NFL team thing your seasons in a pretty tough spot. If you're starting quarterback goes down with an injury for an extended period of time. Right. So I just I feel as though that tonight's not the night that that day is a year or two or three years away in terms of drafting that successor. And the only thing that we we have discussed with guys like drew locker Dana Jones's they're not being perceived like Aaron Rodgers was in two thousand and five Aaron Rodgers was pick one eight or one b and just so happen to slip to twenty four because nobody else took him. Nobody's talking tonight. Like, drew lock or gain Jones is going to be an option for the number one overall pick, by the way, it's looking more and more likely that that will be collar Murray, according to tweets rolling in from a variety of different reporters. We'll get the official announcement. And a couple of minutes here is the draft gets underway down in Nashville. But it's not like drew lock or Daniel Jones is being spoken about as the next. Great NFL quarterback. Just not how they're being perceived four one four seven nine nine one six. Twenty to join the program tonight. Here's what we'll do. We'll step aside for just a moment. Breath coverage is now officially underway. And we're going to follow through the pigs and try and figure out what those picks mean for the Green Bay Packers out of the picks one through eleven impact. What the Packers might do at twelve. Or if they stay at number twelve to be very interesting first round, we're used to pick in the mid twenties somewhere. And no longer the case at least not this year. So Packers will be on the clock. Maybe sometime in the eight o'clock hour, should they stick at number twelve step.

"It wasn't a good pass one. It was an open to you. Gotta throw it to the outside shoulder. If you play the ball. That's and drew Brees threw a ground ball on first down. They'd be better off taking three knees kicking a field goal than what Michael Tommy checks out of a run play. There was the Michael Thomas and unless Michael Thomas shoelaces can catch a football that was a bad pass. So you got a quarterback who like all these guys they get older even in a dome where you can hide some lack of arm strength. You can't hide the drew Brees thing for much longer. It's the saints divisions. Gonna be better or you could go coach the Cowboys whose they don't have to give Dak new contract. They got an elite running back in a lead off of line. They got a pretty good defense. And what's the only thing missing from the Cowboys? What's the only way you could say like, I'm not a huge debt guy. I think he's good. He thinks but play color like all we need is a guy who knows how to draw them up in the dirt. And if you ask people play against Orleans, we're like, you know, cruise not that good anymore. Really bright. They have won wide receiver, and they have one hybrid running back, and that's kind of it. And they dominated like why? Because that guy Sean Payton's that good imagine.

From San Jose, California. And my group and the most diverse community, which was Silicon Valley. And so do know when hip hop.

Been running TV news and media for a long time from Bill O'Reilly to Jessica Raphael to all the best actors actresses and everything else. So when they did have control of the radio. Clear channel from here to New York. Why were they letting us even though the Jewish Jews have helped us out tremendously in my father out tremendously? They had they have the mechanisms to habits be representing the better matter. It was still all about the money. So Farrakhan, take about Farrakhan and everything he did he did in the wrong way. But he wanted to open some eyes, and what's the best way to do it. But to do it in extreme manner. I'm disheartened from the Jewish people because they happen controlling TV. News media for a long time now, and it's sad that they let us be representatives black people like that throughout the last twenty years. All right. Well, let's let's let's let's let's let that sit.

I don't I don't get all geeked out about the combine. I will say this. If you are evaluating choosing players based on what they smell like, you're probably doing it wrong. It's going it's going to take a little bit more than thinking outside the box. But sometimes there's nothing wrong with the box by the combine everybody runs a shuttle drill.

Okay. At any say, hey, how's it going to work? So you know, what we're looking for guys like Khalil Mack? Amari Cooper because we get those. We just had a key wide receiver a pass rusher. We like right away. You're like that pope the died after like six weeks like you have the shortest GM tougher, but you get paid out. I think I think Mike Mayock can you just heard there he understands he understands the the the whole shebang bang. I mean, some wants to pay Jon Gruden right? John. I'm I'm there with Jon Gruden wants is what Jon Gruden is going to get. I am here to make that happen. Now. Now, here's the thing in fairness to to Gruden and it's been tried by Mike Holmgren. Even the great Bill Walsh. Never tread this way. Can't you everything you can't be a GM and a coach because when you're finding guys at okay, let's use Khalil Mack at buffalo university the university of buffalo. How many times in cal- Shanahan's a helluva coach to how many times have Cal Shanahan flipping on the university of buffalo tape in the middle of NFL season. Oh, you're right. Not right. You just one job is to be the coach one job is to be the GM. Now like you have Lynch and Shanahan now. Like you had McVeigh Walsh. Bob Myers and Steve Kerr you want to coach in the GM to work together. I mean, clearly, hey, what do we need? What are we missing where we good what we'd free agent we need a guy like this. It's not that the coach doesn't have inputted conversation all that stuff. But when you're drafted a guy in the fourth round, and you're scouts and your GM have seen this guy six times and you've been coaching Tampa Bay and Arizona and Seattle whatever you should not be weighing in on on the traffic. You know, you just shouldn't it doesn't work and what has happened, unfortunately. And this is the history of the raiders Al Davis, who is a brilliant football mind as an owner as a coach the whole bit in his later years. He would just watch the combine on TV, and they take all these workout warriors that largely we're just failed draft picks. And that was a guy who knew football, but he wasn't watching him play eleven games against Valdosta state and things like that. And as much as we want to get Walsall, the credit, you think Walsh, actually, saw Mississippi valley state tape of Jerry Rice, you make it sound like L, Davis's infatuation and picking up jamarcus.

"It makes it a challenging thing for the fan to be able to weigh in on. So I think most people know that this is these are critical decisions that are made here. Here's the problem that I have with chasing, the groups of assistance that come around. Almost all of them are busts. I said almost Mike McCarthy was at assisted who is brought in from another team. In fact, it's amazing. How many people don't remember where Mike McCarthy was before he came here? Do you remember where he was before he gamer forty nine you got that? Right. Everybody says New Orleans he was at the war Orleans, but then went to the forty Niners for one year. In fact, the year that he came from the forty Niners. They had an atrocious offense. But he was only there for one year with people remember him for is that he had the number one offense in the league when Aaron Brooks former Packer was the quarterback down in New Orleans and prior to that he kicked around all over the place. Similar situation. With regard to Matt leflore who a number of stories indicate that the Packers are focused on is maybe their backup. If they can't get FitzGerald from New Orleans. The floor is apparently the offensive coordinator with Tennessee. But he's only been there one year prior to this. He was at the Los Angeles. Rams. It just turned into a very very powerful offense. So I can't with any intelligence go through and commented all these different assistance and say who I think they should hire. Who they shouldn't? What we can do is react to the media reports that are out there about who. It is that they've asked the interview because for teams for coaches that are under contract with someone else you do have to request permission. So it gives you an idea of who it is that they're focused in the only people you don't have to request permission for people who are unemployed. So if there's a former head coach flopping around out there, you don't have to ask anybody's permission for that guy at all. But if they're working for somebody else, you have to make a public request for permission to speak to the person, and those names are reported. So we take you can see that certain teams are looking at certain coaches. The trend in the NFL the last several years has been to hire young assistance. And I am struck at how many of them are total flops when they get their first head coaching position. Some succeed the bears clearly succeeded at least in the first year they hired a relatively young assistant at it. Worked on the other hand, the former bears offensive coordinator gays who went to the dolphins was thought to be a can't miss. He lasted three years there. And they fired him was it because of him or did he simply not have enough talent to do the job at Miami. Don't know the answer to that. Most discussion with regard to the Packer vacancy has focused on Pat FitzGerald, the head coach of north western who doesn't seem. He's either not that interested or is trying to get the Packers to give him a ton of money. Hard to say he said after northwestern's bowl went on Monday that he's not leaving northwestern end of story. The coaches of the biggest liars in the world. Maybe he's just saying that because he doesn't want it team to think that he's going to leave, but he's open to the notion of leaving or maybe he intends to stay what I do think about the Packers situation is this. I think they have to decide who their top person is. And then. Get them. If it's Gerald is the guy that good, a constant Murphy watts. Back up the truck give him the money. Don't get into one of these situations in which you're gonna miss out on a guy because you didn't come up with your five hundred thousand dollars short five hundred thousand dollars is what you're giving. That's what like a barely more than the pay the give to somebody who's on the practice squad. You don't wanna miss out on something is important is this by playing it on the cheap. You have to identify who your candidate is. And once you determine who it is that you want do not allow yourself to fail in getting him. If they want FitzGerald, just because Mark Murphy knows them from northwestern, and Brian good accounts was impressed with them because he went there on a scouting trip. That's the dumbest possible reason if they want to get him because they think that he is an incredible leader. And he has been a consistent wetter at a place that it's almost impossible to win at if they think that he because he runs a pro style offense that can translate to the NFL if they think that he can be a tremendous leader of a strong staff of assistance, then go ahead and hire him if it's because it's somebody the emitting you have a level of comfort with that's the dumbest reason to hire. Anyone?.

"You know, maybe it would be another year on the rebuilt, but even a five hundred season showing progress. I mean, that's how it that's how it works in this league get on learning new systems and all that. But he does have a pretty good record with quarterbacks. I mean, you know, he he helped rich Gannon just swears by them. And that's it used to be learned his career took off when he was in Oakland. But he said he learned most of what he knew or much of what he knew when he worked with the Carthy Kansas City. And I don't know if you remember Aaron Brooks, but he was a guy the Packers drafted then when maturity he was on railroad just staff only lasts staff lasted a year. Mccarthy went down to New Orleans and was offensive coordinator down there and got them to trade for him Brooks to be their quarterback. They didn't have one and Aaron Brooks took a little playoffs one. Yeah. Year. And he I think McCarthy was there for three years and they're Brooks played pretty decent football for him. When McCarthy left Aaron Brooks. I think his record after that was like two and twelve or maybe even worse than that was really bad. So his track record overall with quarterback is good. And you know, riders had that he was why am I blanking on the Tedford? You can't protect for Cal. And and had that system where you know quarterbacks had the high carriage on the back. So they put the ball right by their ear, and it kind of mechanical throwing motion because of the way he wanted them to play, you know, he wanted those mechanics, and you know, McCarthy got rid all that stuff. And now you see the natural thrower that Rogers really is. You know and McCarthy you have to say McCarthy helped him there. So yeah, I think he's he's good at work, and what these young quarterbacks, and that would be obviously that would be what would attract have to the to the jets, and what is somewhat ironic if I were call. I if I'm correct here. Mccarthy was with the forty Niners at a time when they were very offense of minded and during the draft passed on Aaron Rodgers, and Alex Alex Smith, I yeah. Yeah. And then McCarthy loses his job with the forty Niners gets hired by Green Bay. And then drafts Aaron Rodgers. Yeah. He gets one because it was that draft Packers. Some San Francisco had the first pick, and it was gonna be Roger Smith, and they took Smith and Rogers falls all the way to twenty five. I think it was and Packers take him at twenty five. And then McCarthy in all year later coaching is coaching Rogers. And I think Roger's never let him forget that that when he was in San Francisco, we pass on the funny thing there is you know, so you worked with Smith for a year, and obviously Smith wasn't close to ready to play. Right. The rookie. And he's nowhere near as good. As Rogers was. But they finished with a thirty second offense thirty second ranked offense that season and yet McCarthy still Thompson still that didn't bother him at all. And he's still hired McCarthy after he had the worst reykdal ranked offense in the in the NFL we're talking with for a few more moments p Gardy who has a Packers columnist for the Green Bay press gazette. You think McCarthy? He will be able to handle New York and the pressure and the scrutiny. I think so I mean, it's completely different markets. But one probably misnomer that people wouldn't realize is that the media coverage of the Packers is actually really thorough. You know, they're the far the biggest thing in this state bigger than Ben state government bigger than anything. So people follow this closely because of the sixties especially in the fire of years. They've got fans all over the just all over the country. They've got one two or three biggest fan bases. The NFL. I would I would guess that all over the world which by emails much ads we do and all that. So and there's a lot of local media, keep the walkie Madison. Green Bay all the TV stations are out there all the time radio print media. So even a small market because the smallest city the media coverage is actually, you know, pretty robust so while it's going to be different in New York. Of course, the jump might not be as big as as. Someone who's unfamiliar with all this with gas. And what kind of well, certainly we're talking about the Green Bay Packers. And if there was going to be an America's team. It would be I believe the Green Bay Packers more than the Dallas Cowboys a little bit more promotional and marketing with with Dallas from when they started with that kind of monitor some years ago, but you're right about when you're talk with what you're saying about the Green Bay Packers. They have a fan base as to other teams too. But really, you're talking Vince Lombardi you're talking at the beginning of the NFL as we know it, you're and Vince Lombardi from here New York is you know, and the bottom line is no the Green Bay Packers without an owner and the Green Bay Packers right in the middle of the country, the small market that's talking about. They could be seriously called America's team if we were gonna call any team in the NFL, America's team might be more. Do you think? Yeah. People love that story. And it's the history is pretty neat. Actually, you know, I had a professor in. And journalism school never use the word unique. But professional sports in North America. They really are unique for their ownership structure, and how they arrived from from nineteen nineteen until now there's a lot of of that and you were hit on with with Lombardi. 'cause that's when the NFL started getting big on TV was in the sixties. And so the Packers were the dominant team Iran national games often. And so all these young fans, you know, teenagers and even younger around the country. We're seeing the backers and watching them win championships. Dr them, no matter where they live. There was people who adopted them as their team, and then they pass that along to their kids. And I think that's a big reason why between that and kind of just the allure of their story, and you'll be in the community on team at I think that has gone a lot of friends. I what I could tell I road games. You know, there's the teams the fans seem the pack stadiums when their team is on the. The most I think the Packers the Steelers New England because of how good they've been and you know, Cowboys fans to, but I think those are probably. I'm not sure if I'm forgetting anybody, but those might be the teams has fan bases. Phil opponent stadium was more than more than anybody in the NFL. No sure about the Green Bay Packers with the history. Currently Lambeau the whole thing. You know, listen to frozen tundra. I mean, I even remember, and I can't remember what I had for dinner yesterday. But I remember that Hornets number was five Jim Taylor. Number was thirty one. Everybody remembers the ice bowl. I mean, Vince Lombardi legendary already and that that's I mean, that's almost too obvious to say, but certainly people know from the Green Bay Packers before we let you go Peter again with Mike McCarthy, you think he'll take the job if it's offered money notwithstanding. You think he would like the challenge of taking over a team that knows losing. Mike from Charlie Brown with the peanuts cartoon strip. I mean, this is the bad news bears. They have not won a Super Bowl since sixty nine. You know from with Joe name that's been fifty years and what a hero. He would become. In fact, Chris Johnson the brother of Woody Johnson. The two owners of the New York Jets said he would become a legend were he able to turn things around any coach. And if it is Mike McCarthy, he would become a legend here in New York were heated turn things around for the New York Jets with young promising quarterback, and he would become a hero here in New York. You'd think he would accept if offered the job the challenge of what New York is. I would think there's a pretty good chance. Now, I'm guessing in his mind. He's interviewing the jets, you know, as much as they're interviewing him. He'll I wanna have a clear understanding of, you know, the the front office structure whose whose bosses and who's making what decisions but. I don't think he would interview unless he were, you know, pretty serious, and he's going to have done background or whatever. To find out some of these things. So I would think if he's taking the interview which it sounds like is that there's a really good chance. He would accept a job if offer I haven't talked to him. So I'm just guessing reading tea leaves. But that's that's my best. Guess sure. And you have no idea when he might be interviewing with the New York Jets. I do not all I've seen is that confirmed that he is interviewing with them. But I haven't seen a day. He's he's free. They could talk to him any time. I would have to assume it'll be in the next. I would guess the next two or three days. Many jets fans right here would love to see him interview. In the next ten minutes. I'm sure. Yeah. He's the popular choice with a lot of our caller is a lot of our listeners. I mean, there are there is always some concerns. I mean, there are a number of jets fans who would love to see this coach or that coach. But I think McCarthy right now is with the popular public opinion that the jets hire him, and I think he'd be interested more than say Arizona or some of the other teams because of the quarterback with Sam darnold. Do you think he would be able to be a complete head coach in other words? Yes, we know. He's offense of minded and the jets need that. And we know that that Sam darnold needs some tutoring and mentoring and coaching and educating ward he be able to cover the entire team as a head coach and be not only the offense of mind that he is. Is. But also have the respect and attention of the defense as well. Tell us what you think of him becoming or and being a head coach with the whole team. Yeah. So three or four years. I think it was three years ago. He decided to give up the play calling and head down. Tom Clements is coordinator at the time. Do it and about halfway about ten games of the season and their offense was not playing. Well, I think it was the fifteenth season is happened. He he took over the play calling himself. It back. My guess is after that experience. You'll never give up the play calling again, I could be wrong. But that would be my best guess. You know, he was hired in large part because of his expertise on offense. So he would be reliant on getting a really good experienced defensive coordinator who he can leave that side of the ball to the handle. Because if you're gonna run the offense there's just not time to also be heavily involved in the defense to so that would be one of the downsides of hiring. If that's what they're looking for is an overseer head coach, there's not enough hours in the day to do to do both. I don't think so sure there would there would be some limitations there. But you know, this is an offensive league. And it's a quarterback league. And so if you get that part, right? You're eighty percent of the way, they're you know, that's why that's why teams like having these offensive head coaches as that's why there's a good argument all things being equal you go off. But that would be my guess is that he would continue to run the offense himself based on his experience. One. He did give up the play calling and so much like he did with Aaron Rodgers when he first took over the job when Aaron Rodgers was young and unknown per se an untested when he was working with an Aaron Rodgers in the off season trying to refine and define his game. And help him become the star. He has become you would think that now all these years later that McCarthy would be doing the same with the Sam darnold working in the off season to improve his game. Yeah. That would be exactly and it was interesting in Rogers first season as a starter was always. And then the no nine so his second. Here's a starter halfway through the season Rogers is on track. If you pro rated that he was gonna be close to setting a record for being sacked most NFL history. I think coward on an instant, I think you have the record. And it was like seventy one sacks something like that..
