"If you never watched the documentary that ESPN did on his rehabilitation, you should watch it to gain a full appreciation. For everything This guy did. It is it was remarkable that alone. Was his victory. Um So good on him, and I'm glad he's able to retire with peace of mind after having come back now he will no longer have to ask himself for the rest of his life. Could I have come back from that injury because he did it? On and I think it's a good way for him to ride off into the sunset, now former number one pick in the draft in 2005 Alex Smith calls it Ah, career some free agency news and notes. TJ carry the free agent cornerback that visited the Bills last week re signed with the Colts right going right into the weekend last week, so he is off the radar for the bills. In terms of wanting to supplement their cornerback contingent. They were trying to land. TJ Kerry and reports were that the bills were making a strong push to sign him. But he goes back to the Colts on a one year deal. So he is no longer out there And then finally, ah, guy that Steve had his eye on in free agency is visiting the Ravens today. What Steelers free agent offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva is visiting the Ravens today. Which is now sparked some intrigue in Baltimore because there has been talk since the early stages of the off season that they want to trade Orlando Brown. Orlando Brown has asked for a trade because he wants to play left tackle. We know that's a position that belongs to Ronnie Stanley, who signed a long term contract last year and is not going anywhere. Orlando Brown says I am not a right tackle. I am a left tackle. You need to trade me in the final year. My rookie deal. He obviously wants to make a giant contract somewhere else. You know in years to come and believes he can best do that by playing left tackle for another NFL team to this point, the Ravens are not commenting on any kind of trade proposals talks negotiations for Orlando Brown. But now that Alejandro Villanueva is visiting Ravens. There is speculation that that might gain some traction as we get closer and closer to the draft. I think in Orlando Brown trade is is going to be happening on draft weekend, right? Probably. Yeah, but let's remember it's going to be a one year deal. Well, he's got the final year of his rookie contract. I think he's going to say I'm not going there unless you sign me to an extension. Now. I think he's looking to get his big second contract. Now that just say no. Then you know, and just who knows? That could be the what's gumming up the works Right now. He's adamant about getting a second contract. All these trade partners was saying, Well, how about we play here first, and then we'll talk about contract next year and Saying for him. My I don't know who is Agent and I get that holding a lot of cards, right? I get all that you need to say, Hey, I'll go to whatever send me to a team. And play. Yeah. Play for a year and then don't and then don't sign the deal with that team. Then go out on the market. I mean, that's what you gotta do is certainly he's played extremely well for the for the Ravens up to this point. What I mean. You got a bet on yourself. If you gonna bet on yourself, you know, don't fold. Don't fold your hand. Best thing you could do is play frankly play all right. We have to take a break here, but when we come back, we will set the table for today's Twitter poll. Which has something to do with the bills being atop the A F.

"You're talking about our favorite game of the year. Army navy is a man who was a captain at army served three tours in Afghanistan earned the bronze star medal of valor. We take too long to go over all all the things that he did for our country as an army ranger in Alejandro Villanueva of Pro Bowl less. Tackle the Pittsburgh. Steelers joins us now here on herbstreet and Fitzsimmons and one hundred this we're not talking Steeler ball, man. We're talking army navy, and that's it about what you learned. What you got what it means to us? So let's start right there. When you hear the words army navy, what immediately comes to mind immediately. I feel the pressure that the school is is put in on on the players to win that game because the rivalry is Israel. I mean, I think the two degree. I'm not going to speak for for the entire rest of the program. I'm not gonna speak for the rest of the the graduates, you know, but. If army's not a lot of play, you know with his new college playoff and. With limited. You know, a attention of again because of the the system of the plan for a lot of players for a lot of graduates. The army navy game is more important than the rest of the season. I mean is is that important so. Pressure is essentially what I feel. That's considering everything that you did for our country. Just I surprise me. That's the first thing that comes to mind because you you felt real life pressure like bullets pressure. How much does army navy prepare you for any type of adversity? Just just going to a military academy going, you know being there. How much does that prepare you for any adversity that you'll face in any weather walk of life? Well, I mean, you gotta understand it. The navy players also phase him bullets as well. It's been you know, obviously, you have a lot of respect for the Marine Corps. Does a a wave of navy polo players that are now joining the marines and nothing that's extremely inspired. And I'm very very honored to play the game against. Marine officers, and obviously, fire pilots, and and officers that have that fought alongside of me, and you know. Great things for our country. And so that's why you know, all the pain goes away. You know, I it's it's, you know, both men on the field are going to face the same degree the same type of challenges. And so now all because about football. You know is not so much about what's coming out thirds. Just the game the game that you play in right now. And it's a lot of pressure. But I mean, I think football in general, it's a really good thing for. For for for young leaders growing up. Now the accepting criticism. Dealing with the pressure of the intensity all eyes on you type thing, and, you know, learning from mistakes learning from, you know, maybe not getting what you want and put it in a plan, you know, to to get where you want to go. So football's a beautiful thing. There's a lot of parallels that get drawn between clean football war being an officer leader and and whatnot. And I think that there's a lot of truth behind some of those some of those payments. He's decorated with the bronze star a served three different tours afghanistani's a Pro Bowl left tackle for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and he played and let me get straight defensive line own line tight end, and you were wide receiver at two hundred ninety pounds and to get all the positions. You do. You. Didn't you didn't lineup under center, right? No, I didn't. I never I never played tight end. When I was at army. I just play wide receiver and tight end was more an experiment or more than that wants to try to. What what is it when you're in the tunnel and its army navy like we have this Saturday. Just describe the adrenaline the feeling when you're about to take the field. Well, I mean, first of all your classes, they're going to be watching, you know, your world when you're cadet does not revolve around a huge campus. A lot of fans it doesn't revolve around. People on ESPN that maybe, you know, talking about you because you know, obviously, it's a little more limited coverage, and you don't get to watch ESPN. Or any other channels on your West Point? So everything revolves around your classmates, and obviously the entire. All the midshipmen from the naval academy..
Are the Steelers the Most Dysfunctional Team in the NFL?
"J this was kind of a damage control week for the Steelers number one were they effective in doing. So at least in terms of public perception, more importantly internally. Are they going to get right? Where do you think they know what happened? Monday night. I mean, this is very similar to me. Then where they were last year the the the the weekend after Donald Trump called NFL players SOB's. And if you recall the Steelers had numerous meetings about how they were going to handle the situation, especially having a military veteran Alejandro Villanueva on the roster and it got botched. Remember the coaches were on the field tunnel enabled at the top of the tunnel. And then they rip each other to shreds for five days, and they had more meetings and everybody was that everybody's throats, and then they pretty much got hot after that ran away with the north. It could be that. Or this could be they lose to fits magic. And the defense continues to give up forty points. And the offense continues to throw the ball at a rate that nobody else in the league is doing it with no semblance about they're running the ball. Twenty two percent of the time in the first half the season two games. But and I know they got great. You know, great skill guys. But you go out there and throw the ball eighty percent in the first half. Good luck doing that all year, how that works out some semblance of balanced. So we'll see if they can rectify those things in that very building. I mean, that's what they're they're wondering. They're like. You know, we about to galvanize and all come together and put this stuff behind us or your season going to go off a cliff way before we even get to

"Show that with continuing conversation and more dialogue we can eventually eventually get to the point where we can respectfully disagree and it's not throwing stones in calling names and insulting people which very often is what this dissolves into i know because i've been in a lot of fire of it for it for a year tao it's okay to disagree it's okay did not see eye to eye it's not ok disrespect one another that's the part that okay were allowed to disagree if we all agreed life would be boring so i hope that we can learn from one another for sure as long as the conversation continues again that's my pipe dream that's not really related to football the football part of this is while a lot of players came together this weekend to make a statement to stand up for one another about that was impressive but there are also moments like alejandro villanueva staining just outside the tunnel before the steelers bears game all by himself handover handovers heart singing from the national anthem that move me to tears why because he's a former army ranger who served three tours in afghanistan so we again we're all different we all come from different places it was a unique moment in the nfl on sunday i don't know if it will continue next week in terms of the numbers the mass of people that were protesting but if it does there will be consequences there too so don't think it's over i don't think we've heard the last two people who disagree with the protests and i don't think we've seen the last of the protest so though it's okay to not agree she's not okay to be disrespectful i did tweet a bunch of about it on sunday morning if you want to you can find the tweets at a law radio and then on our facebook page to you and it was some of you are weighing in but we are going to get to football coming up next which is great we had some fantastic finishes to our early games on sunday specifically but was limited to that because you know aaron rodgers so we'll get to some of our fantastic finishes some of.
