And alex smith jen. You're one of those rare. And i mean this rare sales people who's actually happy and there are so many of us out there who are chasing that dream. Chasing that accomplishment chasing that sense of fulfillment. That is often very fleeting. We know it's out there. Some people are absolute gluttons for punishment. Some people have reached it often enough to know it's worth continuing to reach but there's something about the energy that you have with you just walking onto the stage walking down the hallway sitting here for a few minutes talking with you. You seem to be very much in alignment as a person with what you do. And i think that is what's most inspiring about what you were talking about. Which is you know really creating that environment of success in happiness for yourself so really excited to dig in to this conversation with you and i know alex you're in the audience with me. What was your biggest takeaway. I just had to go to her afterwards. 'cause i met her last night too and she is happy. She's smile always smiling. And i just took away two things. At the beginning. She led with this theme of this fishermen story where it was you know fishermen goes to fish and you know he catches some fishing. Another guy goes. Why don't you stay longer. You'll catch more. And he's like why would i do that. I have my wife. My kids at home. I i know what makes me happy in. She said the quote. You know money can't buy you happiness. It can be an avenue to give you happiness but real happiness is kind of nick knowing yourself having self awareness and throughout her presentation she really kind of like hit into a lot of things that you could be doing because what makes me happy as is conversations. I'm curious. I really think that life is sales. I think there's so many things that we confuse the term so much selling with winning signing contracts money when things.

"Packers. This decade is the senchenko forty nine. They own the packers. They do make how they do. It doesn't matter. It seems like whenever they meet up a shanahan just just knows how to pick apart the defense. The defense has shown no ability to stop the run. The kyle has just like his. Dad loses her running back. They literally find anybody off the street and the guy running for a hundred yards So this might be the the double jinx fan in maine but I i don't trust bay. The road against san francisco. I'd just don't. Okay take serena cisco yeah when it was on bore yesterday i do you know that was. That was a lie. it was four. I think before the detroit game at one point. Then you guys sent over for which surprised me and I i might have might have thought about green bay at four but now by the way for people who follow all these rookie quarterbacks and they realized that kyle shanahan traded to get the pick that turned into trey lance and people might be wondering. Where's trey lance. Let me explain to you. Why trae lance will never play if jimmy garoppolo is healthy because jimmy garoppolo's record as a starter in the. Nfl is twenty six and eight kids. Twenty six thousand eight. And if anybody who thinks jimmy garoppolo camp play is not watching when jimmy garoppolo goes out to play my right on this chuck you are but i think garoppolo is italian for alex smith. He gets hurt. I remember when alex. No but i also mean it this way. Alex smith was in san francisco. He was a winning quarterback. He was a great winning quarterback and they decided colin kaepernick. You can get us through super bowl and they were right kansas city. Alex smith does fi record guiding. Patrick mahomes right. I i. I don't know i just. I have a feeling jimmy. Garoppolo is going to be an indianapolis colts quarterback in in a year to the next game philadelphia getting four at dallas philadelphia. Not a good team. Dallas not a good team. Now i don't spare me about an fairness are you sure about philadelphia. Not being a good team. I don't think they're a good team philadelphia. I don't know what we know in fairness i they okay. They they hung with. I think the forty niners are the. I think the forty niners are the third best team in after the bucks and the rams i think they're that good and you know they hung with them I know the eagles beat the beat. The snot out of atlanta When we're not. I'm just saying i i don't know i i'm i'm willing to say jury still out dallas on the other hand as a packer fan. I've taken so much. Delight in watching mike mccarthy's inability to manage o'clock this last week it was. I couldn't see the clock. where are you man. there are everywhere not like a high school where you're like. I'm not sure like i go to my kids game. You're wilson and maybe they run. The clock scoreboard. Maybe they don't you know on on any given game. This is the nfl and he claimed he couldn't see and then at one point said oh. A referee was blocking the urine. Nfl coach. you shouldn't and you're the dallas cowboys you should have. Somebody who's fulltime job is to manage the clock. Did i ever tell you that When i was doing monday night. Football mike. mccarthy was the coach of the packers. And in one of those pre-game sessions a day before two days. Before mike mccarthy began to talk about something and i asked him a question about jobs he'd had before he was the football coach. His favor job was he was a toll taker on the pennsylvania turnpike was disfavor. Chop said that three in the morning four in the morning naked people would be in cars dropping money out of the side into the toll booth. You love anyway philly in the four. I'm gonna I am going to take those points. I think it's just too many points. I think philly's this is a you know and This is extremely entertaining game. 'cause dallas does not have a good defense. It's not that bad. But i think dealing move to bonn game entertaining. At least we'll be forced to watch it. Speaking of people who do not have good defenses. Atlanta has allowed eighty points in two games eighty points. Okay one last game. The football team is on the road at buffalo. Nobody looked better than buffalo on sunday. Nobody you might say. Somebody looked good but nobody looked winning. Thirty five nothing in miami on the road. The football teams getting eight at buffalo. Who do you like to. I'm just gonna play a numbers game here. I understand why this numbers high. Yep i just i- i washington football teams not this bad. They're not a this feels like what what the spread should be if they were. They were facing the giants Not the another football team. I i this this field high and after the blowout I'm i'm I'm giving give me the football team on extra rest by the west with the football team already. You know i. I i know and not only that. I've spent my whole time in washington hating the hating this team le enjoying their downfall in all of this stuff. I can like ron rivera. Some finding myself you know. Go get them running in the washington. Rivera's is what. I wanna call right now. So i i like the guy feel like he's you know he's a nice liter this team. I don't have decided these the best coach they can have but i. I don't know maybe. I'm giving them a bed. That modem certainly make the monkeys life more miserable though. I did him the monkey. Bud grant love could get so you know. Think what what i think. I know one game the month. Becca may correct. It's probably but grady. Look great he did now. He's like ninety three or something like that still wearing yes. We'll talk to you next week. Twenty-three thank you chuck. Chuck todd boys and girls. We'll take a break and we won't go right to the milk if we judge jesse. Just talk chuck todd. That'd be fine. And i just completely blew the whole deal. We give you monkey. Go ahead allow.

"Aldridge a few years back. I had the honour of covering the eastern conference finals. td garden and when. I saw david in the hallways after the game. I ignored all pretenses of acting. Like i'd been there tapped on the shoulder and gave them a hardy cheese. Orie that's nice either way a sincere and overdue thank you to you. And the entire crew for many years of laughter unwisdom. You'll have to come on the celtics left podcast fuel-cell i'm sure nigel can arrange a betty can once again. This is two by two and it is a band called divine sweater and they will be appearing in dc dc nine wherever that is on october. I i play in chuck. Todd chuck todd had a fantastic sunday chuck. Todd was two and five in week. One and two and six by thursday night as he lost by betting on the washington. Football team in the giants covered. Okay so that makes him to and six on sunday he was five and one. Do you want you can take a bow on this issue. Were five one and sunday including baltimore which to me looked hopeless in the third quarter. I'm like i'm like the american electorate a moderate by extremes. We get to the center with this extreme It's a it's a real complicated way to go. Five hundred which also means Benefactor betting real money thanks to the juice but it's also reminder that the first couple of weeks hard and look how many you guys sent me over the lines twice them and i don't think this has ever happened. But of the of the of the seven games you sent me six six six six change. I don't that to me shows you even the pros. Don't quite know what to make the nfl. See you know what i mean. Everybody's still trying to figure out where everybody stands. There's no there's no consensus. Let's start with the first game. Line shifting thing. Because i had written down my original line was new orleans plus three at new england is thought to myself. New orleans is getting points at new england new orleans okay. They had terrible second week but look what they did in the first week and the ones getting three. That seemed like a lot to me. That is now down to two and a half. Who do you like in that game. Well i don't know. I'm i'm with you. I saw that line. And i thought three three was definite. Now you know there's a reason it got under three point every half point matters in the nfl This is no. I'm gonna stick with the patriots because this is new orleans just third straight road game right if you count the first jacksonville. Obviously that assistant coach thing i think. Apparently you need seven assistant coaches to keep jameis winston from throwing interceptions or at least we'll find out and speaking of somebody who's kind of like me with gambling james winston one week he's going to be a hall of famer and the next week is going to do these things. And that's how new orleans fan so it's going to have to get used to it but now i'm i'm gonna go with the pats here simply because of the third straight. The process new england beat to and now they should be to know they had a fumble. Going in for a score will not like not at the goal line but in late in the fourth quarter in their first game. That fumble lost the ball lost. The game is going to be one and two and they. That's right. i am a scene that way at the start of the season. Now you're right. Let me go to the next one. Where the line was a thunder shift. Overnight thunderous because it started out. I'm so happy insanely to me. Totally insanely that tampa bay was giving one right or getting tampa bay was getting one at the la. Rams getting one tampa bay. Tom brady has nine touchdown pants. They were getting one. And i love the rams but come on now they are giving two and a half and that is no small movement in the line. This a game that everybody is going to watch this one. Well the reason. I'm happy about it. Because now i feel good about taking the rams. I was wanted to find a way to take the you look right. The and this is what i'm betting on here. That the rams defense is better than the bucks defense and while the bucks. Offense is certainly better than the rams offense. I think that can balance out. I'm not obviously ready to sit here and claim the rams a home field advantage for all. I know they'll be half as many there'll be place it'll be half brady fans have rams but Whose defenses look better in the first two weeks tampa's or or or the rams and the rams have beaten their games you know. I look. we're going to nitpick. I'm gonna picnics here. I think tampa has been sloppy. And i don't think you copy against a good team and the rams game this'll be the wake up call in rams yup so you're getting two and a half you know you're getting two and half at home points now. That's what i never. I looked at that. One rams that tampa bay getting points. I said you gotta be kidding with this okay. The next one went from six to six and a half. Maybe these are the charges. The san diego chargers in my mind but the la charges on the sandiego charges that kansas city charges getting six and a half. And i will just say this. I understand the kansas city lost the baltimore. Kansas city hasn't looked at sharp this year in either game as they looked last year. The chargers are better than you think. Justin herbert is better than you think. This is a division six and a half is a lot. You see where i'm lying but i'm with you and for everything you just said and look at the. You heard me last week. Why took the ravens. The chiefs don't cover. They find ways to win. Don't cover by the way they wouldn't have covered. Had they won the wanna feel at. They fumbled the ball right like this. Aren't they do just enough to win. And if you're playing a good team one mistake can cost to the game. As as they've done they've been slashing. And i'm and the chargers are better road. Came home team you know. Give me the charges on the road. They've learned how to plan the road every day. You know when when they're at home and they turned out to be a pretty good road warrior team on spread. So i like. I agree with you on this one. I would take the charges on this. An extra two teams that lost disappointingly and almost catastrophically last week. Seattle blew a fourteen point. Lead in the fourth quarter to tennessee tennessee. By the way. Big obsta tennessee in baltimore for what they did last week. Seattle is now giving to at minnesota minnesota thirty seven yard field goal to win the game and didn't convert kirk cousins. Who anybody listens to this show knows. I've never loved kirk cousins. But he did what they paid them to do. He put him in position to win easily. Yeah so seattle is giving to. I guess they feel that seattle is going to be highly motivated giving to at minnesota who you liked. I told myself at the beginning of the year. I was been winning doubt on minnesota that against kobe and I i'm not gonna put. I don't trust this minnesota team. I feel like it is one bad game from completely. That locker room completely coming undone. Zimmer's got a little pressure on them And i just feel like seattle can recover from a bad loss. Better than other can so I know it's on the road which is a little disconcerting. But but i just don't trust minnesota. I don't trust what's going on and now. Gimme gimme the sunday night. Game is once again. Green bay in a national game green bay at san francisco. San francisco is to an old. They beat too bad teams and detroit game inexplicably. They gave up about twenty points in the fourth quarter. And then they went to philadelphia. Philadelphia is not a good team. They beat philadelphia. They held philadelphia down their defensive. Very good in that particular game they destroy jalen hurts by. Aaron rodgers is not jalen hurts. Aaron rodgers and the green bay packers in san francisco. Getting three and a half your packers fan your whole life right i am i am i i the largest unofficial.

"Off but in the morning. It's going to be chilly john. It's gonna be fun so let me get to. I think there's a lot of sort of soft questions but the hard question for most people is. What are the chances of the intersections of kepco and shambo who have not pin pals. What are the chances. I assume there's no chance they'll play together but but will they be in each other's company and are people looking to see how that works. Yeah more than any other event in golf. When you're in a team event your intersections are often and the the guys are around each other a lot and they'll get along this week tony. They'll play nice. It'll be coon by ya. It'll be fine. I don't expect him to play together either. Just doesn't seem like steve stricter To do that. He's such a nice guy. Isn't very confrontational like butch harmon. For instance is one of the all time. Great golf gods The instructor butch harmon Gozo dear friend who was telling me the other day. I put them together. I match friday morning. Get it out of the way. Just go They would make a great pairing by the way but they don't get along as okay. Not everybody has to get along sports. But they'll they'll intertwined a bunch In the team room Having to walk around with other matches when their matches complete those kinds of things but if they do play together tonia i. I'd be surprised. But you never know. I mean i think it'd be great television. If they play together first thing out friday morning that'd be that'd be very very cool. I my question about the shambo. And i like to shambo and i think what the shambo doing incompletely reshaping a sport or trying to is very very intriguing to me but he is also practicing for the long drive contests which is going to be held the day after the ryder cup. How if you're if you're steve stricker how do you not go to the shambo and say what are you doing. What do you mean you taking time every day to practice for the long dry. What are you doing as as that come up. He hasn't said something to privately In that regard i. I don't think it's gonna actually affect his game whatsoever. Look telling you watch as much golf as anybody. I know and i know does well And i know wilbon hates the shambaugh but yeah he is he is he's taken over the mantle from bubba watson as the most interesting person to watch in all of golf and if you've watched him say all the way back since say wing foot last fall when he won the us open outside of new york city you know. He goes out there and rips that driver on the range every day. I don't think is preparation. changes whatsoever. Just because he's entering the long drive contests on monday i. I don't think there's any difference in what he's doing. He's always done this or always meeting in the last twelve or eighteen months. And i just don't think it's that big of a deal for him. I think it looks like a big deal to us. Gee tony it looks like you tear your acl. Just watching get a drive that hard on the rage as opposed to actually performing that way. So i don't think the other guys know a little quirky and they that he's into that other kind of stuff. So i don't think stricter cares. You have to consider what this might mean for matchplay particularly if he has the safety blanket of a partner. You're looking at what means to get off to a fast start with the right wind conditions. One seven could be driveable for him. And there's an early par-five most players are going out left. And they might have a three wood into the green. He was cutting quarter and had one hundred and twenty yards. And so i mean with the right conditions. it could be right or cup changing Well i guess. I i'm sorry telling you things on that Michael the golf course gets to be set up by the home team in the ryder cup. Unlike the president's go and the way the golf courses set up this week wide stairways not thick rough at all and they're probably going to be about three or not just seven. Michael they gave me about three or four holes perhaps depending on the wind and the way carry the pj of america decides Tea boxes Three or four holes could be driving. I would be to me forget personality and all that kind of nonsense price. The shambo should play in every match. He should play in all five matches. He drives the ball farther In match play You know you never know what's going to happen. And by the way at the end of the day as far as he hits it match usually is a buddy contest. And outside of harris. English and zander schlafly on the american side rice in the shadows. Probably the third best putter right now on the team so to me to shambo with what you talked about michael and the way the golf courses set up with not a lot of rough and wider fairways and greens that are softer than usual to me. I didn't shambo ought to be playing every single round. Can i just ask question. There's no chance he can win the long drive contests right. These guys are beasts do that. He's not gonna yeah different deal. I mean look he can roast it out there But those guys are playing different sport like he's playing a different sport than we play when we go play off. Those guys are playing a different sport in that particular skill set. But it'll be fun to watch him. Get after. Because i mean. Those guys aren't great golfers. He is great golfer. So you know it'll be fun to watch him compete against those guys but no he's not gonna win that i'm assuming that everybody on both teams has played whistling straits before because it's been the host of a major too right. I mean they've played it like they're familiar with the course right now. The last time there was a major. They're telling you it's twenty fifteen. Pj championship jason day. So it's been six years there. There are some guys who have not played up until this ryder cup. Where you know players have come over to the golf course. Looks like but yeah there. They're a few guys on both sides actually who've never seen the golf course before. Okay all right. Stricker much to my surprise because i think patrick reid is a great ryder cup player. Much surprise he left..

"Eight or almost eight seven the second pitcher for the nets to go. I mean he went a long way but when you see him pitch when you see his motions before he pitches the rocking. Back and forth on the mound. Three time in rhythm with the batter pumping the back. It's just it's very weird. It's very weird. He had a very good outing. But it's very weird. Nats nats won that game. Are they in last place or have they avoided last. I think they had to sweep the marlins to get out of less. So i think they are decidedly inland okay. So we'll see about that. I have a story to tell. And i want to tell the story in the open to the show before we get to. Steve sands at kohler. Washington kohler wisconsin. You know that. I've talked about things that have happened in cars on my street right. I told you about a person who was dead in a car. A few years ago the found found found body. Okay in the same area. That i'm gonna talk about now. This is up the street towards the corner towards the corner. Then i told you about the people who used to just park rental cars right rent. A cars like sloppy little hondas and just park them there and then somebody else would come by and take them and i said what. What are we doing. Sloppy is a of term than what you use. Were junky cars. That's still kinder you know. And i said what are we doing here. This is not a lot. This is not an avis lot or hurt slot. This street is a residential street and is not zoned for having rental cars. You know for having the guy from national come out and say just go down the aisle and pick what you want a staging area all right. This is not what it is for the last ten days a giant and i'm not exaggerating forty foot. Long trailer is parked in that same area on my residential street. A forty foot long piece of junk trailer. That is painted half white and half gray. It is not it's garbage in airstream camper right. Yeah whatever it is it is not mechanized. It cannot by itself be started and driven out. It has to be towed. It's forty feet long. My kidding about that not at all. It's forty feet long and it has partially obscured deliberately pennsylvania plates. It belongs to no one here that i know of no one here on my street so after ten days it was by the way dropped off there by a pickup truck with ohio plates. Not dc plates ohio plates and everyone just for a second because you mentioned zoning and one of the issues with your neighbor versus other dc neighborhoods is you don't have as zoning residential parking doesn't have to say zone to zones so you actually get this pretty frequently because you're in between access points to maryland and you happen to be on the street that has ample street parking versus some others in this area. That's right all of that is right. It's forty feet long. It belongs to no one here and it is an eye sore. It is an eyesore enough. If i lived in the house that it was parked behind. I go crazy. Don't crazy to remove the blocks. Just let it roll down let it roll down the hill. It is it has. Some of the windows are open. And i don't i don't mean by open that they are open and leading aaron. I mean there's no shading on them and there's just junk inside again delivered here by a pickup truck from ohio. That chuck is now gone yesterday. Nine or ten days into this. I called my elected representative the councilwoman from ward for where i live. Genelius louis george. I gotta recorded message. And i said into the recorded message. I gave my name. I gave my phone number twice. I gave my street address twice. And i explained that this piece of junk has been sitting here for ten days and i went further to say that my neighbor up the street had said she saw two young men over the weekend working on this thing and she inquired. Do you live here and one of them said. I live a few blocks away a few blocks away. And i said in my recorded message. Well why does he put it on his street if he lives a few blocks away. Why is it on my street. A few blocks away. I received no response no response last night. When i was out with a dog i saw a truck pull up behind this particular thing and a kid get out late teens. Early twenties and go into this monstrosity. I got his license plate. Dc license plate by the way adc license plate. now. I am awaiting. I mean this is not. We're not an rv lot. We're not selling campers here. This is a residential street. We're not a place where you just pay. We're not a gas station. We're not we don't have a big sign that says we repair old. Rv we don't have that it's a residential street. There's no commerce on. The street is just houses on so if this camper belong to a neighbor on the street would you be okay with us if you least knew the owner and the time that it would be on this yes because i could approach that owner and say what's the deal here. Yes since the pandemic has started. This has been happening in your neighborhood. A lot of boat hitches have been popping up and they are dropping them off at these corners that have easy access point. Now you have enough cars. Why don't you just put one in front and one behind and say when you're ready to when you're ready to get in her move this thing come find me. I did was what i thought was proper. I called my elected representative sure. There's been no response. No response yet. Perhaps this will get a response again. My elected representative is denise lewis. George and what. I said in the message to whomever would listen is what are we. What are we doing here. What are we doing here. This is just an abandoned old piece of junk. rv it cannot be moved by itself. It doesn't have a motor. It doesn't have a starter. It doesn't have a steering wheel. It's been here for ten days. My overreact was just a few bits. A starter you can take it anywhere. It's like a solo. Stole a my overreacting to this. I certainly don't think so. I mean excuse me when. I've been over here and i've seen that you can't miss it. I mean it's a horrible thing. I mean it just sort of just there and my question is who are the people with the ohio trump. That just left it here. And who is this kid with the dc plates. Who's working on it. Well is there.

A visit as not as i say to. Crv it's got pennsylvania plates now. Nigel was so excited this morning he was gonna come in and share the news about his. I do home purchase. He was really excited. Get close to work no real commute. I purchase that. I wanted to. I wanted to be so close to you that i could be here for. You know it's terrible and yeah you just want to say look if this live somewhere in this on your block. What on your blog. Now you don't see how your neighbors like it. I mean you know how crazy stuff with my neighbors and you know the fallen trees in the in the trash cans. Now take care of your stuff. This is no good. You can't do that now. And their defense they might be saying we view this as a neighbor not street by street and actually just park forty four i. They would say based on the traffic flow of this neighbor. This is the easiest place and you know because we've gone through these processes. That's why if you have the paperwork to have this thing on the street then you have to sort of retreat but right now just seems like we found a place to dump this. There's no one checks this corner so there's been a pattern of this behavior. So am i right to expect a call back from the council members office. You're right to expect it. Will that happen. I've left messages over the things that have upset me on my block in the last several very famous name. I gave my address. I gave my phone number. Came through three one one. Do you know the dc portal to get things done. You're going to get tickets opened and closed. Sometimes those tickets come back years later if you're mentioning say a parking sign in a residential neighborhood doesn't make sense or a bad intersection so they might be working on it but i would've expected a phone call by by middle of tuesday. You know once you got back into the rhythm of the workweek. This is what i'm saying. It's a piece of junk it's piece of junk doesn't hands the visual pleasure of this block. I'll just say that.

"Intercept to the backfield goal shovel. Pass off chapter by troy reader. And i'm just curious because for me. I didn't play quarterback alex smith. I don't know if you know that but for me and for the internet it was like a jarring thing like i didn't know this happened. Did you know that intercepted shovel passes were their rarity. I did know that you could enter the shovel pass I i got i got it offend carson on this play that that's a play that a lot of the nfl runs They're pulling jack. Doyle is tight. End kind of lined up on the tackle. He's he's poland and volunteers guard. And it's it's basically a running play But you're just shoveling instead of handing it off. And for some reason jack doyle decided to run behind the defensive line I have no idea why did it. There was a little bit of penetration on the play by a guy named aaron donald but still the place should have been just fine. I think that's a hard play to ever see when you're the quarterback and you're reading the defensive end you go to for pitch it and i'll send your tight end isn't area decided to duck behind the d. line i really gotta give carson get out of jail free card on this one. I don't think it was his fault. You use daily. Use daily grants you alex amid the ability to dispense get out of jail free card the insight that we want. I was not expecting this. But i respect it. I really really got on this. But it was useful in the game costs and then also in florida onto the floor down at the one on the first drive and didn't score an emmy guy kicked one of those get points which would have been a huge upset. I think against a really good rams team so i i'm not giving up on carson wentz. He was banged up all camp. He didn't get a ton of wraps he played last week. Basically on three days practice. I love him. Being back. With frank. Reich i i really do think I'm hopeful this isn't a serious injury. That tackle was really awkward when he did injuries ankle. Hopefully he can get back out there because i think it'd be good for football To get him back to kinda where we know he can play from potential sampling. So let's let's get you out on another trip down memory lane because you mentioned aaron donald alex and you know i just want people to respect what that actually is like what it's like to have the aaron donald experience. Have you blocked those memories out as well as that under the couch tried again again. Probably you're bringing up a lot of bad memory said. I know this is like the world's worst psychotherapist. I'm asking you. Hey remember that time. He got sacked. Aaron donald four times and your game back from injury like what was that like. Yeah i do associates..
The Zach Wilson Era Is off to a Disastrous Start
"So let's talk about zack wilson. Because you mentioned him and watching him lose twenty five to six at home to the patriots and bill ballot check and bill. Bella check destroys rookie. Quarterback's he consumes them. He picks their bones. That's all stuff that we know already cleans. His teeth with the bones of rookie quarterback is what he does but we saw jets fans alex. You know throwing in the towel and it's week two. And i say that because they were literally throwing souvenir tales from the stands. And zach wilson. The four picks. I'm curious about climbing into your memory bank here because what do you. Alex smith remember about playing the colts back in two thousand and five pablo. I've definitely tried to forget this one all right but we're good. I do remember my first career. Start the number one defense at the time and like the colts were in their heyday. Payton was rolling. But that defenseman dwight free robert matt Bob sanders. i mean it was. It was a joke and yeah. It's all a terrible blur for me. Like four picks i think my rating was it like it was a disaster but i think that was a clear design i was i just turned twenty one. I mean i played only two years in college in a spread system now trying to plan their center. Probably this become this pro quarterback whatever that is and It was not good. I was definitely i. I felt unprepared. And it was a disaster and it showed. You've been a guy who had a four interception game really early after being a top. Pick your the number one overall pick of course. What do you counsel him. Hypothetically what do you stay to him after a game like this if you were to visit him. Alex smith kind of like a ghost of christmas future. What do you. What do you tell a kid who's very talented but also just had a day like this. I think exactly that. I mean i think you gotta go like for me. I just go to the third and fourth picks that he grew and pause before the snap and look look like jack. It's ten to three on this one. It's in the third quarter we got. There's a ton of football left. There's no reason to throw this ball up The way he did and then even the second one in the fourth grade. I mean i think it was thirteen to three. At that point. There is still time. Left like again I think going back to just doing your

"It's the most was asante samuel. He was staring at you the whole time. You be throwing the ball inside your tight end. And somehow thought they samuel was all the way out of the outside. The numbers somehow ran in there and pick dot your body. The tight end like he decided that kind of instinctive ability. He wasn't predictable. You didn't know where he was going to be. And as quarterbacks were so accustomed like okay we have a receiver out there. Running a clear out. Like someone's got to go with him That wasn't the case with asante samuel so a lot of years of know nightmares of asante samuel jumping out route or something and trying to chase down tag on yes and now. He's playing for the chargers trying to do the same thing. Yeah so weird. It's weird even say. I felt like last year. In how washington. Also i played with randy mosses son and it was so weird because i also played with randy man. Don't feel that all. yes so the other thing. Alex that jumped out to me. Here as you contemplate your own benjamin buttoning of your own life is is the invocation of the nfl's new rules against taunting. And i say this because that was a big deal in. This cowboys chargers game that god balanced out by that other penalty but jared cook. The chargers tight end got penalized for celebrating touchdown by spinning the ball on the ground. And doing the feed me thing. The zeke thing and this happened and got penalized a bunch on sunday. We had a defensive back signaling. Incomplete thousand flag player clapping that was a flag and then in the seahawks titans game. This was the worst one i think. Fourth quarter seahawks cornerback. Dj read very generically. Thought flexed over. Aj round the titans receiver. After incomplete passes. Look i hate these rules. I think along with everybody on the internet at this point. Do you feel strongly about them. Yeah i couldn't. I couldn't agree more especially about a couple of them for one of the flexing one. It's something that half the league. Does you make a play. These guys get up and flex. Which i think's harmless i actually. They're excited. I mean this is an emotional game. You how much these guys put into this You get one shot on a sunday to to have these guys not play with emotion. I think it's absurd It's what we want. I know. I i love watching it that moment in the game. It was a huge play. You know he's excited about it. There was nothing demeaning about that and some of them to thought that flag i thought was a clear. Overreaction jared cook went to scored a touchdown. I mean not. Celebrate a touchdown. I just don't know who are. Who are we protecting alex. What's the logic here. I don't get it either and it's the same. It's an overreaction. I love watching the emotion on tv. I think we all do. It's what makes the nfl so special to try to tell these guys in the heat of the biggest moments to to contain themselves Is is absurd into penalize them and influence a game is even more ridiculous. Yeah so the seahawks lose that game in overtime and there are other things going on there to mix extra point missed extra point derrick. Henry doing whatever he wants. Because that is what derrick..
NFL Week 1 With Alex Smith
"Alex smith. Man you were. I mean first off your ties loosened. Let's start there. You've just spend your first sunday as my teammate. now at espn. You were last. Season's nfl comeback player of the year. We all know that incredible story. But i believe this was the first time in twenty five years you have not been playing football or rehabbing for football. So how did it all feel for you personally. Just being out there and not being out there. Yes you're right. It's been twenty five years. This fall that i haven't been doing football some fashion or another been in training camp incredibly different but Awesome i had a lot of people reach out to me a lot of like stanley france. You know this last week in mackay. We're thinking about you. How are you doing. And as honestly i. I'm so at peace with the way my career ended obviously grateful that i ever was able to make it back in to be doing what i'm doing and you know still be around the game in some other capacity. I still had butterflies this morning. So that was amazing and looking forward to this challenge. It's it's it's fun

"Obviously from an outside looking in the you know that didn't that didn't happen didn't take place before we get to overdose. What are your thoughts. Colin kaepernick can how that situations played out over time. Yeah you know so hard you know. I spent his first years in the league. I was with him news. Young kid obviously just kind of getting in getting into the league trying to get you know he's floating and figure it out but to watch to to know him The person that he is the player that he is the work ethic That he has in competitive drive and to see the. I think he played seven or eight games at the end of that season. If you clued include the playoff round in the super bowl game i mean it was a historic level of play You know seven or eight games so you know for me then leaving an in fast forward a few years and all of a sudden he's out of the league What was you couldn't explain it either. I mean it. It just didn't it didn't make sense of the path trajectory that he was on the talented. He had the work ethic and competitive nece that he had internally league. Obviously it just doesn't make sense you can't you can't explain it Baffling guy was a. I mean he was just i mean he was he was rolling mean he's still holds record domestic back to the green bay playoff game and like had no idea what was going on and how to stop him and he was just He was in his second year in the league and playing at that level. And i felt like you know it was only looking up for him. And so obviously you have bumps in the road happened to to see him out of the league at a few years later is it is like i said does. It doesn't make any sense before. Go give me that old story that you yeah i tell them together. So it yeah. So it's it's funny Guide i got introduced to votes probably seven years ago. Eight years ago so in the offseason i started taking my my family would go to hawaii in the off season. You know especially kick escaping some of those winters in kansas city. And we'll go out there and spent a decent amount of time out there in and i got introduced to doing a bunch of crazy stuff outdoors. I mean you name it. A road cycling hiking beach workouts paddling. I was on the go rolling and doing all these doing all these things that i'd never done in life and It was a ton of fun. You like the amount of things you could pack in a day. I was crazy. And that's why i got introduced to because i would pack up today and as you can imagine it obviously takes a toll on your body and i ran into these sandals. They're really big on the island and they were kind of like say this kind of recovery sand had never seen anything like it. And i remember the first time i put him on and i remember you know a lot of football players i have. I have some back pain idea with kind of off and on in in my lower back and i remember the first time i put him on. It was like someone had taken like a release valve in the pressure on my low back and was like oh my god. These things are amazing. And i love them. I warm everywhere over there in hawaii kind of live in sandal and I remember i. I immediately brought several pair back to the kansas city. Qb room and At that point. I think it was like nichols and tyler brayden and i'm mike. I brought the sandals back and like you gotta try these things are crazy. And i kinda thought it was an island thing. That was the only place. I knew i'm turned out to comedy from new england and But anyway i just. I tried them and i love them. And that was really where it when you know i. I kept a pair out there. I keep a pair with me Kind of wherever. I went in and then fast forward then. I hurt my leg in break my leg infection and obviously rehab. It was hard. I dealt with a lot of pain in my lower body. A lot of fleet discount for daily kind of came back to the different stages in and same thing like i just found. I like i was in the every day i mean i would. I would go do my physical therapy and rehab and pushing this could and i make these games but it would be heard heard you know for the rest of the day your solar in come home immediately like i was even a conscious thing. Just get in. Get in my house. When i came home and i wear them around the house of the rest of the day. It's so i make. I make the fifty three man roster this year and it's in the middle of the co but i never thought i'd come back this bar then i make the team and i don't know if my wife my wife and kids in my my sister were here and they do a small celebration for me. They this like champagne shower. They surprised me with it To call me out into the driveway and everybody got champagne. And they're dousing the champagne. And of course i had practice earlier that morning. And i'm in my who i am and so my wife puts on instagram. And next thing. I know who kind of reaches out to my wife. And that's like the first time we made the connection. I tell them the backstory. Like i've loved the company way before my injury but it's obviously weren't even more and kind of started back and forth and next thing you know like hey they're they're interested in potentially nothing and so you know obviously over the years i've done. I've done a handful of endorsements you know being a professional athlete a lot of times. There's not necessarily an honest connection you know. And and i hate. I hate that kind of false narrative that you push maybe something. That's not really what you you believe in and for this one. It's so amazing. Because as i got older it's it's it's way more important than me to if i'm going to do something like this. That is real. I don't. I'm not. I hate i wanna be authentic and so for me. This one is like a win all the way around. Because it's something that. I believe in wholeheartedly get a kind of published. Push this company out there a little bit attention. I think they're amazing. I think the product is absolutely one of a kind. It's killer anybody out there that's dealing with like if you're active or you're dealing with any kind of lower back. Pain aches and pains back pain. Like i mentioned a give them a try. I think there. I think it's amazing. so yeah it. It's still cool to kind of be here launching this Like i said it. It's a win win all the way around. It's company that i feel like i believe in the product. I love the people there what they're about and so Awfully kind of a get the word out there. I mean half. Alex if you wanna give me a pair okay i got on the. Hey thank you very much. I appreciate taking the time. It's an honor to get to speak to you. Congratulations on all your success. It was a treat to watch you and we will pay attention. Cheer few the next job after whatever it is that we know it won't be coaching out.

"And into kansas city in my run their united seven seven coordinators in my first seven years. Not exactly the way you to wanna draw it up. But but an opportunity to play for a ton of coaches a lotta great minds. yeah so so lucky been around. there's a lot of ways they've get it done Learned a little bit. I think from from all them look better. Rogers let's try your broadcasting skills. What's your take on that situation and how it's gonna play out right now. Yeah i mean. I think it's it's so crazy that it's gotten to this to where we are. I think without a doubt. I think it's inexcusable. That the organization. Let this point Here you have a is given you sixteen years his entire career to you. He's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time arguably the greatest statistical quarterback of all time you're on the doorstep of the super bowl and you don't communicate with him and he obviously doesn't feel wanted there and you go ahead and draft a quarterback in the first round and it appears that he had no idea that was coming. That wasn't communicated to him. I i just don't know how it's not so much. What they did is really they did it. And i think So much is how you treat people and the respect. I just don't know how that all wasn't if you knew that was potentially a place you're going and taking taking you know quarterback how that's all not ironed out with aaron prior to the decision and if it's not you potentially don't make it Here's a guy that's a multi. Mvp still playing at a crazy high level. And i think you gotta take that into account oftentimes you know the personnel guys in know looking at prospects this prospects and they're looking down the line but you also it's a it is about the people and i i. I do think you gotta gotta look at how you treat them. The messaging The the communication. I still go back to that. I mean you got to communicate you gotta be able to go talk to you guys and make sure everything was was good to go before you pull the trigger on something like that. And that's what everybody in the building. Not just aaron. I mean i think you gotta go out of your way to over communicate that and make sure everybody's on the same page when the chiefs draft to patrick mahomes. You knew in advance that was coming. Yeah absolutely that had been communicated the entire offseason leading up to that the entire offseason by multiple multiple people. Everybody in the personnel department coach. Reid constantly or multiple phone calls about that happening happened with with when we drafted cap with coach. Harbaugh i i knew i knew invent well in advance of that. What the team was thinking the route they were gonna go And i think that makes a difference it it does. I mean honestly. I i in any case had gone out of your way to obviously make let him know how you how the team feels about about how important he is Ended up. potentially they're thinking this route and and obviously explaining their thinking Clearly obviously from an outside looking in the you know that didn't that didn't happen didn't take place before we get to overdose. What are your thoughts..
"alex smith" Discussed on The Adam Schefter Podcast
"Nfl quarterback alex smith is brought to us by voice. Did i say that correctly. Alex you got it. You got it after a few times. It took me and overdoses helped you with your performance and recovery. It's a schumer company right with. What do i need to know about ruvo's before we get busy here today. Yeah it's a. it's a recovery. Footwear company and it. It's a crazy story. Hopefully we'll be able to dive into it a little bit. But it's a company that i i was. I was kinda into as far as wearing it way before my injury and then and then obviously throughout my recovery. After you know my my leg injury it was something that became integral into kind of my daily routine. And so it's It's so crazy to kinda ended up being partnered with a mountain and Pumped talking with you about it. Well thank you very much. I appreciate taking the time. We will come back to them at the end. But i do want to know now that you've announced retirement. What is next for you. Yeah you know it's it's I'm still kind of getting used to even just saying that every time i say it it still feels a little weird kind of trying it on you know Being retired in a little bit it hasn't said in you know it's it's we're still in may For me this been pretty similar to the last couple of seasons in the sense there hasn't been an off season for me The last two years so it doesn't feel that abnormal right now. You know i'm interested to see obviously come this fall. I think it's only gonna be natural That it'll it'll be weird. You know every fall. I been in the training camp for the last shoot. Almost twenty five years of my life So i i think it's to be expected that they'll be some There'll be an adjustment period but I'm kind of looking forward to what's ahead. You know i. I haven't made any decisions You know so kind of the lay of the land and tried to take as much information as i can before i make a decision. I've always thought that strange though. Because you're you're at the age of thirty seven you've done this as you mentioned since you're twelve years old and all the sudden something that's been such a major part of your life. No longer is such a major party real life and train to gear up for the season. It's a total change in perspective and attitude. And i'm wondering what kind of feedback you've gotten on that and what type of expectations you have. Now that you've begun to meet the reality of it. But i think too big things You know one of the biggest ones is. I've been i've been part of a team. That part of the team for you know twenty five twenty five years and with that the structure of the team the routine you know especially come to fall. Even even the the year to year cycle of off season in season. You know my family families lived that kind of heartbeat. You know it's all my kids have known and obviously that's coming to an end so i think they'll be adjustment there. I think the other thing is you said it. I i never expected to play sixteen years in the nfl. And for that reason. I i've put off the whole question that most you know early adults have to answers. Like what the heck do they want to do with their life. You know like. I mean football. Just lucky enough. Kept going in. And i have all these interests and curiosities and it's like when i am here i am thirty seven. I got it. Finally i got. I got to face this this puzzle Now we're most people. I think obviously a faced in their early twenties and and kind of figured it out. And i'm doing it much later in life and three kids and so Trying to juggle all that you know. I feel i feel well prepared for it as much as anybody can but again like i said just Right now just kind of gathering as much information as i can before i make any kind of decisions. Okay so gathering information gathering information about coaching gathering information about broadcasting gathering. in from like what are we. What are the options event. You can do anything you want. But what what interests you a ton of interest in football and and not football. We'd go ahead and take coaching lhasa table. At this point. I might wife. My wife would kill me. If that was pursued from the home life and really know the point of me retiring. I did seriously think about key. Plenty of keep playing had opportunities out there but for me it really was about spending time with my family and my kids are at an amazing age to go do a lot Incredibly impressionable in in. I think here in a few years all of a sudden they're going to be in high school and not wanna hang out with me as much so Definitely looking to take advantage of. You know having a flexible schedule be able to do things with with my family at this point. They've sacrificed so much for my career. over the years so a little bit. I think time to put some focus on them and so coaching definitely doesn't It's tough tough from from that perspective. So yeah i mean. I i am. I am looking into the broadcasting thing. Obviously there's different forms of that As you all know what does that. Look like obviously there's the potential opportunities opted field as well. And what are those Who am i working with. I mean i. I think that's a big thing you know. Who are you working with. I mean it's such a big part of of enjoying what you do in life I can't do nothing. I'm not just going to sit at home Twenty four seven either so just trying to find that balance that life balance Wanted to do here in this next chapter but obviously also spending time with my family. Great part is you've earned that you could afford to do whatever you want it to do. You are entitled to do whatever you wanna do. It's a great spot that you've put yourself in now during the season that you did visit jacksonville at one point how how can you come to signing with the jaguars like.
"alex smith" Discussed on The Adam Schefter Podcast
"Another episode of the adam. Schefter podcast today. We'll be joined by the former quarterback of the washington football team. Alex smith has he details. How close he came to actually playing this year upon his visit to urban meyer his former college coach in jacksonville and also breaks down the relationship between aaron rodgers and the green bay packers. Keep in mind. That alex smith was in the same draft class as aaron rodgers in fact in that draft throughout the all season most mock draft experts at aaron rodgers. Going number one to san francisco and then somewhere along the way a couple of weeks before the draft somehow switch. Alex smith slid into that first slot ahead of our rogers changing the course of history and almost taking us to where we are today with aaron rodgers in hawaii at least was recently with his fiancee. Shaving woodley and the actor miles teller but we are quickly approaching a key. Date the next key date. In the aaron rodgers stalemate with the green bay packers and that would be on june eighth wednesday june eighth because that is the day on the packers begin their three day mandatory minicamp. And i would say right now. We should not expect that rogers to be at that. Three day mandatory minicamp and if and when he's not there as i would expect the debt point in time the green bay packers will have the option of finding him ninety three thousand and eight five dollars for missing old three days of the mandatory minicamp at breaks down like this fifteen thousand five hundred and fifteen dollars for missing the first day. Thirty one thousand thirty dollars for missing the second day and forty six thousand five hundred and forty dollars for missing the third day grand total of just over ninety three thousand dollars in. It's not the money that matters to enter rogers in this particular case. It's more the principal. And i think it would. Further inflame the relationship between the two sides if the packers went ahead and find him for missing those days of mandatory minicamp which is why not only do i expect aaron rodgers to miss the mandatory minicamp. But i will not be surprised if the green bay packers in advance. Proactively say that they are excusing. Aaron rodgers from the three day mini camp. That is the situation that would make the most sense now. I don't know if they ultimately wilder that but again that's my prediction in advance is that the packers will wind up excusing him. Therefore avoiding the confrontation and further. Inflaming that situation while giving aaron rodgers. More time with the hope that eventually he'll decide to come back to green bay. But that is the next aaron rodgers date on the time line here with the green bay packers meanwhile we continue to wait for julio jones to be traded and we are expecting that to happen any day now in fact i would think it happens this week and again. There's not a ton of interest in paying the falcons what they want. Everybody agrees the guy is a future hall of fame. Receiver still wanna top. What the game today. Thirty two years old dozen practice a lot. Is that ankle injuries. All sorts of nagging lingering pains in all sorts of lingering pains throughout his body but again there's been some interest but not as much as you might think certainly not at what the falcons are requesting in return so we will see where julio winds up going to me the tennessee titans do make the most sense not saying that will get it done but they lost corey davis lost jonnu smith. They have a whole arthur smith. The falcons head coach came from tennessee. It would be out of conference. That the falcons will be trading if they decided to send him to the titans school. You'll be in alabama guy joining derrick henry and other alabama guy. Give me the titans of formidable combo there in tennessee. So we'll see how the julio jones saga shakes out this week. But i do think he'll wind up. Being traded from the atlanta falcons and of course last week we had the re and of course last week we had the announced retirement of the former colts. Kicker adam terry who in my mind is the single greatest kicker in nfl history and we'll be first ballot future pro. Football hall of famer guy is off the charts and really if you just look at the numbers and what he's done. The numbers speak to his place in history. He scored more points. Two thousand six hundred and ninety three than any player in nfl history. Think about that more than anyone. The idea of the game is scoring in the skyscraper. More than anybody kicked moorefield those five hundred ninety nine then you player district tech. Two more field goals any player in history. Seven hundred fifteen made the most field goals in nfl postseason history fifty six the most postseason points two hundred and thirty eight. Nobody scored more in the regular season. Nobody's scored more in the postseason. And the we think about the biggest kicks in the history of the game. Adam viteri made them. He made them made a game winning. Kick to beat. The rams in the super bowl really launched the patriots dynasty with the single greatest field goal. That i've ever seen in the snow. Against the raiders to help beat oakland at that time and help propel the patriots onto what would become their first super bowl title in the start of the dynasty out of atari made. That happened was an unbelievable kicker. Did it in new england. Did it in indianapolis remember the shock when he left new england like you didn't players the promise of their career leave with adam. Budgetary did but he moved on.

Has Washington Made a Mistake Dropping Alex Smith?
"For me. Alex smith if you're loading up to try and win the super bowl and the next two years because you've got stafford for these at least two years. I would think that having an experienced. Backup quarterback like alex smith on your roster that would be. That'd be a nice luxury to have. Yeah no for sure. I mean despite worries about being in the same time ever stand those worries. I seen those production meetings with alex smith. He's hot i got it. Yeah yeah he's he's a handsome fellow So lies so. I i'm with you right. I mean if god forbid something were to happen. Stafford's someone capable as him. Yeah a backup quarterback and we've seen a lot more injuries at the quarterback position over the last five to seven years. I i do think it's really important position to have. So i'd or if we're gonna talk football greg then i'll just simply say then since they wanna be boring i'll simply say that that you know I think alex smith is actually still a starter. And i'm not quite sure you will want to be a backup. Because they went five and one with them and that team was trashed. Let me give you the flip side. You ready for this. Which is let's say. Matthew stafford has a couple of bad games. It won't take long for everybody to go. Hey you got alex smith. He had a great career. Give him a shot. I've never heard of crowd. Beg for alex smith before my life. It hasn't happened to him. He's had that he had a really crazy career. You know when he was in san francisco and every year they were changing coaches or coordinators. He had this one game. I'll tell you guys were a divisional. Round game against new orleans. And he ran a bootleg for a touchdown. It took to overtime. And then he threw a touchdown. Pass vernon davis in the this old candlestick community thought. Alex smith was on his way at that point and he's just caught bad luck. It seems throughout his whole career but he's had a great career because he's a winner everywhere he goes. Now he's like the most inspirational guy on the planet. Yeah it really is inspiration for sure what he went through his wild for. It's crazy that he's sixty when i saw it.

Where does shawn watson might be available. Dak prescott might be available. Russell wilson might be available louis. How interested do you think teams will be alex smith as he becomes available now. I think alex is a tremendous mentor. I think alex would be a tremendous bridge quarterback at this point in time these people are going to really try and connect the dots between him in chicago given his familiarity with matt nagy and that system that they run in chicago like it was in kansas city. I don't think that's a that's the option that they're looking for but look. I have nothing but infinite. Respect for alex smith at any team would be better served having him in their in their quarterback room for sure.

Dallas Cowboys fire defensive coordinator Mike Nolan and defensive line coach Jim Tomsula
"Do have some breaking news on friday afternoon. The first friday after the dallas cowboys season ended an unfortunate start the new year for their staff. That dallas cowboys. Making some you know some obvious news in a bit of surprise news the dallas cowboys announcing that defensive coordinator. Mike nolan defensive. Line coach jim. Tom soula have been let go. Have been whatever you wanna call it fire to buy the team. They will not be back in two thousand and twenty one. Mike nolan obviously oversaw. One of the worst defenses to ever live ever played in the nfl. And so we'd heard. Rumblings obviously had been reported different instances over kind of the last month that it was likely he was not going to be back although mike nolan. If you're somehow unaware is is rather chummy with mike mccarthy dallas cowboys head coach mike mccarthy they go way back in case. You forgot mike. Nolan was the head coach of the san francisco. Forty niners in two thousand and five and mike mccarthy offensive corner at the time that was of course the year. The forty niners took alex smith with a number one overall pick. Ironically the quarterback that won the division that they were together here. This season with the dallas cowboys. Jim thome soula was a head coach of the forty niners at one point in time himself albeit for only a year obviously following in the footsteps of jim harbaugh who got an extension today of all days again with the university of michigan so lots of symmetry going on here and so. Yeah i mean my canola thing. I think everybody saw coming a mile away. The jim thome solo thing is a bit of a surprise austin on youtube. Says i thought it said mccarthy and was like whoa still good to get rid of nolan and this is how every cowboys fan feels. And let's be frank. Let's be honest. We don't enjoy talking about people losing their jobs. People getting fired or things like that but this defense was among the worst again in the history of this game. The dallas cowboys last week. With their season on the line against an offense that had been anemic for most of the season the new york giants that was incidentally again. You talk about all. The irony here led by former dallas cowboys head coach jason garrett in the giants offensive coordinator who again to go kind of crazy circle reportedly had an interview today on friday with the los angeles chargers for their head coaching vacancy. But the cowboys new york with their season on the line and they got run over. I mean the new york giants before last week against the cowboys. The previous four games. The giants had not scored more than three points in a single first half in each of the four games. The giants played before the cowboys. They went into the locker room at halftime with no more than three points. They put twenty up in the first half against the cowboys. And that was kind of what the season was for the cowboys right. This never ending display of imperfection this never ending run of records getting broken records getting set and i just you know this was inevitable. I mean shutout. Of course to the all encompassing thanos. I mean this truly was inevitable. Reality a lotta people myself. Included wondered what took so long this week. It's a pair at the mike mccarthy and his staff overall were evaluating things doing kind of the final walk throughs and assessments in whatever time just came for them to move

That is not in contention for the nfc east crown entering week. Seventeen which tells you everything you need to know about. How their season. When greg i feel like a lot of my confidence in washington is rooted in if alex smith is playing. Because everything else about this team. I like in this match. Yeah i like that. They have antonio gibson back is huge. Smith did practice on thursday so it's trending towards him play now. He wasn't playing as well. His last few starts that we saw him out there even before the calf injury as he was when he first came into the lineup.

I mean just to even come back and be in uniform on the fact that the coaching staff so clearly said all along this the guy we trust. I think that he can do a lot priests snap that. You're not going to get from the other quarterbacks on that roster this needs to be about washington's rookie class though to chase young antonio gibson these guys are key to this team and it's incredibly. These teams met in back in week one. When i thought philly could be a super bowl team their quarterback of the future carson wentz is nowhere to be seen right now and philadelphia and washington washington. Chance to win the nfc.

"Wrote the best sports book in my life time moneyball. I just watch. Go Watch the movie trailer right now on Youtube. It's so good. It's so good. It is such a good book. It is such a good sports movie. I love everything about it. Everything it's funny. It's whatever it is. Baseball makes better books. Football makes for better television. No. That is what it is. hockey miracle. There's been a lot of good hockey movies slapshot miracle, lot of good hockey movies. I don't think it's great on TV makes good movies. Baseball's not great on TV all the time. I like the world series and the playoffs, but baseball makes for good books. Maybe it's because the seasons long, and there's a lot of inside stories. I mean I I have no idea why, but God is moneyball. Good, go YouTube. We're all looking for stuff to watch. Go Watch after the NFL schedule released tonight this weekend. Watch moneyball with Michael Lewis a Brad. Pitt's obviously that thing it's so good and you know what I love about it. It's IT basically they're looking for solutions. They have no budget the Oakland A.'s have no budget. They have no money. And, so like all right. How do we win? And we're going to turn the sport on its ear, and now the sports totally driven by analytics, but when you're the first people to do things, it changes, you get a lot of blowback, and so billy beat in the as had no money and a lot of blowback and. They changed. The first adapters people say well. They didn't win a world series. You can't. They had no money. They were getting to the playoffs. It's like it's it's. They just didn't have any money. The a still don't have any money. But Michael Lewisham fifteen months. That's joy. Taylor Steve Smith Brandon Marshall they were honest today. They were I was GONNA ask Steve Smith About Earl Thomas. I thought I'd stay out of that space. Out they said. So. I am now going to predict. Let me. Make sure I got this right screwed up. Through someway guys I can't find it. Although we go there, we go so I. Season ends and a bunch of coaches get fired and hired like Washington right. And then you have your free agent. Period and then you have your draft. And then. You also have your schedule release, and then you have camp and some guys get hurt. And so I could sit and never make no prediction until right before the season. But I do believe. Once! They get the coaches in once. Get the free. In, and once I, get the draft in. Can kind of predict what's going to happen, I think the variations. Of the standings will be small I. DO think somebody tonight so I'm going to give you my AFC and my NFC. Standing predictions pre schedule release and my gut feeling is I'll make some moves not drastic but some. So you WANNA GO AFC I. All Right so AFC east. Bills jets tie. At nine and seven, but bills beat the jets twice and win the division. Dolphins third at seven and nine Patriots and nine patriotism, no weapons. quarterback never taken a meaningful snap, no weapons. They lost their two best linebackers their kicker. Dan replaced him. Rookie tight end tight ends tend to take a while in the NFL so bills jets dolphins patriots. AFC North. Ravens win ten in six Brown, second nine and seven I. I've moved the steelers down seven and nine Bengals, five and eleven. I guess the story here would be I. Have Cleveland over Pittsburgh I think they have better components. I think I. DON'T Trust Big Ben's off season workout regimen at Jay. Glazer pointed out yesterday. And I'll probably look at the schedule tonight. The steelers one of those teams. I could move up to eight, eight, nine and seven based on the schedule and bengals neither five and eleven. AFC, south I think. The colts reclaim it with Philip rivers. I think for a year he works. Titans pullback. I think the Ryan Tannehill south. All worked perfectly. A Won't this year. Titans. Too, noisy too many missteps in the front office pullback at seven and nine. jags, a couple of wins, but they're tanking two and fourteen AFC west I think is very competitive chance to win. broncos second chargers, raiders I love the chargers roster. But this is a quarterback coach league. Anthony Lynn and tyrod Taylor in a division that's got mahomes and Andy Reid. I think they're outgun and I gotTA. Tell you something I. Thought Vic Fangio did a really good job. In the second half of the season last year, I thought Denver really came alive, and I love Denver's off-season. chargers rounded out five and eleven. I'll watch their schedule and see. I think the divisions. Do tough for them. I don't think they're good enough defensively to compete. Raiders Five and eleven so my AFC playoff picture. Bills when the East Ravens win the North Colts when the south chiefs win the West. And in the wildcard teams, are, Denver Cleveland and the jets. And the NFC. Eagles Win Division. Two Games over the Dallas Cowboys at eight eight. Giants six in ten Redskins, five and eleven, Redskins, defense is interesting but I. don't have any idea what they're gonNA, look like a quarterback. New Coach new coordinators new staff, no TA's virus year. And north I think Minnesota had a better roster overall than Green Bay last year and I think they had A. Much much more influential draft I think Minnesota had one of the better drafts than the packers did. Eight eight. quarterback situation who knows I? Don't Buy Matt Patricia Five and eleven NFC south. I think the saints getting Malcolm Jenkins and Emmanuel Sanders was really smart veterans, smart players who come in fit very easily. I think Tom Brady gets Tampa after Iraqi September two nine and seven I do not think Carolina's in a rebuilding mode. I think Carolina's GonNa score a bunch of points with Eddie. Teddy Bridgewater who is a very good distributor and I think they drafted all defense a. Total rebuild mode. Think Carolina's GonNa. Be Okay, Atlanta I. Don't know how I feel I'll watch the schedule. They feel five hundred seventy nine. NFC West Seattle twelve and is pretty ambitious, but I think Seattle and forty niners are the class of the, division. I think Seattle last year was on fire. They beat San Francisco. Then they fell apart in the backfield or they think they would've ended up in the NFC championship and quite frankly. I could have ended up in the Super Bowl I undervalued them. Last year I'm not doing it again. Rams eight eight don't have any depth and a bunch of new coaches cardinal six and ten. It'll be a fun six and ten. We'll see how Isaiah. Simmons works I love watching Color Murray. So in the NFC I have the eagles winning the East Vikings. The North The saints, the South the seahawks winning the West and my wildcard teams, forty niners, going to be a heck of a wildcard team of bay in Green Bay. And there you go. And I have. I have the right to change my mind. Right to change my mind. I did see begin a baseball..

Jones drew NFL network broadcaster played for a decade in the NFL eight for the jags in one for the raiders and a three time. Pro Bowler is joining us this morning by the way it looks like. Not that! The jags are fascinating national topic, but it does appear there sort of tanking. When you were there. They were viable and they won games. It's I. I can't say tanking Marie because I. It's hard to tank in football, but it does look like. How about this? They're looking to next year's draft. Is that fair? Are would say that rebuilding I. Think in business. We call it. pivoting Hannah happens at a lot of different networks happened at a lot of different businesses. You decide to go one direction in that direction. They were getting a lot of talented players, a lot of personalities locker room. those players, and then that staff got into the AFC championship game. they swung for the next couple of years didn't make it and now they're going to pivot to a different direction It does suck though being Jackson when you're. You're that close, right? And you come back, and and you know, and now you're part of a rebuild again. And and my career early on we were winning games and all as part of a couple of rebuild, because we weren't winning consistently and it it just it's. It's disheartening at some points, but you just hope that they hit on some guys, and that they can keep you know building, and and keeping their guys there, which is the most important. It's hard to win games when you draft the top ten eight or nine years or ten years in a row, and only two of those guys are on your roster. So Cam Newton most believe is more talented than Teddy. Bridgewater or Nick foles. But Nick foles has a job Marcus Mariota has a job case. Keenum keeps finding work, Teddy, bridgewater, who I like more than most people get to starting job and Cam doesn't have a GIG. I have a theory on it for years and years. I was told by sources inside the building. Sometimes he was distracted. Sometimes he was a little dramatic. He was not the easiest guy to coach. That's why Ron Rivera went to Washington and traded up to get. His backup Kyle Allen, so but it does it surprise you that Cam Newton, a former MVP. There's there's no job for them. None doesn't appear to be any market. I'm very surprised and for me it it comes down to..

He was the number one pick. He is a ninety four and sixty six record. Five playoff appearances won a division. No losing seasons in a decade. This video is wife. Sent out is amazing but if you watch project. Eleven the documentary. It is I've seen I can't watch the whole thing. Is I know I come across here? As a you know to touchy feely. But I can't. He's had a great career. He's made a ton of money. I don't think Washington right now needs him. Dan Snyder I've been told Dan. Steiner is offered him an executive job he's been offered in the and upper level. Vp executive job. That's how much Dan Snyder respects him. He could get a broadcasting job tomorrow at and I won't speak for my bosses but if Alex Smith was on the market you be crazy not to hire him. Super Nice guy gets along with others really SMART. I mean he's He's played in the NFC. He's played the AFC the video of him coming back and I am had him on the show before he has a legendarily good reputation the NFL. He's a great guy. I can't watch him play. I joy I would be on pins and needles watching him play. I couldn't do it so as the team doctors in Washington. A decision almost had his leg amputated and many people were concerned died and I watched that video this morning. I'm like Oh God retired please in it it. Just sit down a lot of money. Beautiful family studying wife lot of money number one pick. Five playoffs wanted a vision title fifty eight percent winter. Don't play sometimes people have to step in and help you because it's hard to manage us. Men are hard to manage right. We manage our money. Men manage their money better than they manage themselves. That's why Wall Street and prisons are full of men as my dad won't said Sometimes people have to step in because men. Are we get tunnel vision? We get very competitive. We can't we can't see the broader horizon. I don't WanNa see Alex Smith play. I really don't I just I. I sat there and watched video like if he plays. I just go watch a watch. The bingles games.

"alex smith" Discussed on Speak For Yourself with Cowherd & Whitlock
"So I if I'm with teammate I can play with them. But no matter what he still average see my my my opinion of deck hasn't changed. But I can pretty high regards already like I didn't think he was elite. But I think he's right on this second tier trying to pull his way in like a b b. Yeah. I mean, you know, if if you guys have Super Bowls second tier guys all, you know, you're thirty million guys like your cousins, Matt Ryan's. I think he's kind of even Russell Wilson kind of probably give Russell on the top tier putting yourself in. But I just see differently. I don't know if it's because I've competed against him. But I just think that kid has something man like he has it. And yes, it's not gonna always be pretty, you know, the past might not always be on the money, the inception. He threw received should of made that kitsch, but that's elements ball deck. You throw that ball to where he can stick that seven round and run right under it and catch it right here in his hands. You don't put it back here. That's a play NFL quarterback should make one hundred out of one hundred times. And so those frustrating plays you see from that. But like you said it's something about this kid when he called his man random can he win it all can he be? Yes, he can't on his team. Yes. He can not this team this year. Right. But moving forward them having argon who's the comp is Alexander Alex Smith before before you Smith. This twenty five at one of seventeen you're right. But he was a bargain deal. Seventeen million. He won a lot of games. He protected the football. And he gave Kansas when he was in Canada. He gave Kansas City a chains. Now, Alex Smith last year who taught it all over the yard because he seeing young Mahomes on his heels, and he knew he had to play a little different. I'm talking about Alex Smith who's who on those San Francisco teams, whatever collar who has office coordinator every year every other year. So he never got to figure out and have consistency at the position debt. I got to me his greatest attribute is that he plays within his skin. Now that means there are limitations. And we know that that he's doing amazing job of computing. What his limits are and trying to best not to exceed them. He's played forty eight games right now by game logs, and like I said in terms of next level NFL games three hundred plus yards. We see five. So this is a guy who was like. I'm not I'm zig zag. Everybody else is going out there. Trying to four yards five touchdowns and also increasing the risk factor. This is the guys like I'm going to rely on other elements. I got the best running back in my mind in the league. I got one of the best defense is out there just play within it. And it's almost Mark Sanchez. I two years inflated lady. Me bill..
