"Again and talking about their fantasy value and whether or not you could, you could pick him up or if you're monitoring match up some defense for the postseason 40 Niners right now in Yahoo fantasy leagues only owned in 38% of leaks was I told you they've been susceptible to give it up points and I think even if you picked him up this week, and this would be the week to do it Before, but we kind of get hip to the fact that they may have a decent schedule for week 13 against Washington Week 14 against Dallas. This would be the week to pick them up only 38%, a legion, Yahoo! And one thing to consider as well in talking about Washington. You said Alex, Miss, not the same guy agreed. They throw the ball a lot. They've been thrown a lot more with Alex Smith. They've been far more effective. It racking up yards and the yards they can put up. And certainly do damage to the to the point total for your defense when you get a touchdown excuse it all, of course, but I think for their matchups week 15 and 16 Excuse me, 13 and 14. Apollo 14 14 and 15, Washington and Dallas. Not bad matchups. And also I'll tell you what, though, but you're right. This is the week to picked up because Hey, man, the bills are an offensive, you know, not powerhouse, but they're pretty damn potent on offense. If the Niners even if the Niners lose the game, But hold the bills, too, I would say under 21 points if it's if it's a low scoring tight game, and, um, I think that the statement will be made. Is Josh Allen is having a hell of a year. And if they can not shut him down, but quiet him. Ah, little bit than then. Yeah, I think there'll be a big time pick up next week. So this week is the week to grab him and stash him. Bring it on back to build walls Rather be away too early than a week. Too late with this point. Seriously,

"Stories on that same i could. I could give a long list of reasons why you can't raise washington higher instead. I will simply a four and seven as is their record. We think we are giving washington e nor miss credit for what they could be because of alex smith now being the starting quarterback because of ron rivera but every team of bob them has six or seven wins in the tier above them. So you can't have a four and seventeen. Join them there now. I do think as i said last week that they're going to win the division and if they get the bucks in the first round i think because of the pass rush they beat the bucks.

Fresh update on "alex smith" discussed on Sports To The Max with Mike Max
"In our CBS sports radio NFL picks on Lee on the Sack Gelled show. I'm impressed with the former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback. He has taken the lead. 12 weeks. He's up one game. So now we're going to find out what he's made out of, and what I'm made out of. I got to step it up. We're coming to you live as always from the rocket mortgage studios needs to know what it takes for a home loan to fit your budget and your family. Rocket can last week. We picked five games because you had the two on Thanksgiving and we did this on Wednesday. Now we'll go back to three games, Gus for brought up by a game. He was three and two last week. I was two and three, Gus, I'm gonna ask you how you're doing, but I think I know the answer to that. I think I'm doing one game better than you right now. So I don't know what happened to you last week. You know you had a lot of confidence going toe to toe last week, but some something I don't know. I'll tell you what happened. The Browns up against the Jaguars and embarrassment. They were up by like nine points, and they choked that they won by two and the Giants. They allowed the Bangles ball was really the Giants. The referees in the Bangles game gave the Bangles a gift pass interference at the one yard line. Was about to win those two games and in a snap of a finger, but by gone loser That's how I lost those two games. That's what you want. I mean, you gotta take into the count the referee sometimes you know what I mean. No one likes the officials. No one likes the officials. E. Don't know They were pretty rough, innit? Steelers game. That whole Steelers Ravens game? What a joke That was for what was going to be a marquee game of the year And I know unfortunately got bit by Cho VID, but 3:40 P.m. on a Wednesday That was one sloppy, ugly game, and there was a back door cover there because trace McSorley had a touchdown late two marquees Hollywood Brown. I know that that is crazy. Who would have thought that would have happened? He threw one in the hole and the guy to make the tackle. I doubt they would even scored. It's the safety would've just made the tackle. So you live in the Pittsburgh area. That team's 11 and oh, and based off the conversation this week, you would think they were, like, six and five or something like that. Are you concerned about Pittsburgh? Are you thinking? You know they're still 11 and no, Let's not freak out here. I got a little bit of concern just because that I'm not sold on their running game. And, you know, I think when they get James Connor back, they can run downhill little bit, but you know, that's the part that concerns me a little bit. I see their defense playing well, they lost, but Dupri that's a big It's a big blow for them, so we'll see how they compensate for that, But that's what concerns me a little bit. You know Ben's doing a good job getting the ball those playmakers and some drops last week, But hey, at 3 40 in the afternoon, we all had some drops. Now that's for sure. Except I was like, why wasn't having it cause I had a show to do, But I'm sure some people having dropped some tequila. Maybe people related things up and they saw the Christmas tree get lit up after the game. All those things probably did occur. Hey, I gotta ask. I don't know if this is in your picks this week, so I don't want to spoil anything as Gus Peratis here with us huddle up. Agus, Former NFL Pro Bowl quarterback as he joins us each and every Friday in football season for NFL picks, and whoever loses the picks this year has to donate $250 to the Ronald McDonald. House for a great cause. That's that Steelers Washington game that's coming up this weekend. Do you root for Washington? Because they were your team? Oh, yeah. Most definitely. Most definitely. I tried to play from the sea. There's three times and he never took me. So I'm all in with wftv right now. What is it The weight though? Yeah. W F T Washington football team, You know, Try another. We're out of nicknames hard. I thought you were gonna go wtf for second. I thought you got it messed up for a little bit. Come up that bad. Yeah. So how about Washington's football team? I know it's the NFC least, then the division stinks. But you got to feel great for Ron Rivera and also Alex Smith. I mean, I think Alex Smith is definitely I mean, you're talking about the two comeback players to the airplane against each other right? And Ben Roethlisberger and Alex Smith and I think Alex Smith definitely deserves that. I mean, what a horrific injury to come back from What has happened to him and to be able to play and lead the team. In a good way. I think that his leadership is shown the team is responded to him. They got a great defense. We talked about that week in week out. And you know, I don't know if they're going to go up there and beat the students, but I know they're going to give him a good game. I want to just go back to Thanksgiving. I'm sure you watch the Washington game up against Dallas. Do you still get what the Cowboys were trying to do with that fake punt? I don't know what the Cowboys were trying to do. Got it, you know? You know, and I watch, you know, watch his team just because the coach Zeke in high school and I have been watching his career, and it's just like There's something going on where there's just not clicking like, Obviously they've lost all their line and then another, their big names and their quarterback and six trying to figure it out. But then I see Mother. Guys, come in. They still have the receivers. You know, I think It's just hard to figure out what the heck is what what's going on in Dallas because they show signs of greatness, and then it just fades really fast. I still I know..

"You're going somewhere even if you're just staying home in this sort of odd year for thanksgiving really hope you get to listen to this podcast particularly of my conversation with alex. Smith is many of you know. The washington quarterback two years ago was in significant. Trouble is life and his right leg which was very nearly amputated. You'll hear the story here and you'll hear reason. I wanted to have him on. This week is that. I know alex smith he doesn't Lie around feeling sorry for himself and he certainly didn't when that happened so it's been two years since that since that moment and he wants everyone happy thanksgiving and i know he's going to have one as well also this week. Juju smith schuster. Now i'll tell you the story. About how juju smith schuster is on this show one of my coworkers at nbc. Sports tests quinlan Who along time ago. I coach on a girl softball team in montclair new jersey. Said you know. Hey we got the dog show on this year. The national dog show which is thursday at noon. Eastern on nbc. And maybe you could get juju smith schuster because he's got this really cute dog of his french bulldog named boosy and maybe he could come on and talk about the dog show so i started to think that's probably not going to happen then. I said why not. Let's try to get juju. Smith schuster on to talk fuji and the dog show and so therefore i did and he said yes. So you'll hear juju in fact there's gonna be video floating around a shot of judas. French bulldog who has by the way over two hundred thousand instagram filers. Buji the dog So we have a good conversation with juju smith schuster and also about how much he really wants to undefeated with this dealer teams. You'll you're from. Alex smith and doodoo smith schuster. Were putting the podcast out a little bit early this week. Just because you know. There's no real reason to wait. I had both of these conversations. Done and i thought maybe you would. You might wanna hear these conversations early this week in holiday week but before i start in i just want to tell you just a little bit about how the sausage is made my job and then a little bit about of the conversation i had on sunday night That sort of led me to to write the column that i wrote this week a football morning in america you know as many of you know read my column. I talked to people on the phone during the day and try to do some stories about stuff that was hot that day in the nfl. Just it so happened than in week. Eleven i thought that the lead of my column was probably gonna be about a taste. Some hill of the new orleans saints starting his first game after being on the saints for three years and i got pay some mail to talk about it sean. Payton coach of the saints. They're both very good. So sit down to watch to write it in on sunday night is i was there was writing. I had the tv on. Because i'm an old man now. And i don't deal well with distractions while i'm trying to writing so i can't look up in the end that will create the great football game so i stuck writing early in the third quarter and i started watching this game. I was transfixed by a so many of you. I bet worthy the las vegas. Kansas city game where kansas city in the second half of this game came back from deficits of seventeen fourteen Twenty four twenty one and thirty one twenty eight. I think those and they kept coming back. Because i believe we are watching right now. The michael jordan of the nfl. In fact i had although headline on my piece in the column. We're watching jordan. So i texted the to pr people of the kansas city chiefs ted cruz and and brad g and i said if there's any way i can get hose afterwards if you guys win i'd love to be able to talk to so you know you have to know in this business. Don't ask for. Patrick mahomes very often maybe two or three times a year at most and so they were very good to me afterwards. obviously chiefs win the game. Thirty five thirty one and may get me mahomes eight minutes before. He's been run out of a skit on a plane back to kansas city. And what i found. So interesting is what i always find out. Mahomes mahomes does not mainland these little conversations. Because he knows that i think he knows that i like the little inside. What really happened. You know during these bribes. So i asked them about this final drive and and essentially you know right at the end of the game. Wanna know what really really happened in the game and so i asked him so that that final timeout xactly happened. When you were driving with less than a minute to go maybe thirty. Thirty five They've got second in seven and the ball is vegas twenty two and they called their final. Timeout goes to the sidelines and he's got a play in mind that he absolutely wants to run. He goes to the sidelines in and he sees. Eric is office coordinator says. Hey there's a player. I really wanna run tells. The play he goes. Well that's good. That's good but what about this point. Any tells them the play that they ended up. Running home said hey. I i like that play a lot and as he said to me afterwards he said that's what i really love about our offense that they take my ideas. I dare ideas. I'm out there. And i respect the fact that they say. Well what do you think. Because he's you know. I'm i'm out there kind of in the in the battle and so he went from the idea that he really liked to the idea. They liked and he said okay..

"alex smith" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"So when. I wanna read this chiro quickly from reverse presser yesterday When he was talking about alex smith and he said look you know he helped helped account for twenty points he put up two hundred fifty yards of offense and a half and he said you know. Jd tripped on one of the interceptions. And and then he basically really tried to protect alex on the other two Interception saying and. I'll read it to you. It's hard to follow the guy who's trying to make something happen when you're in desperation mode. It's unfortunate that it happened again. It's probably still a little bit rusty. But we'll see how he is in the next coming week because he'll be the primary quarterback getting primary rep civil. See we'll get an opportunity to judge him but again it was because we were kind of in desperate desperation mode on the final two picks which just wanted to not true. That's what i said. Tommy that's just not true there. They weren't in desperation. They just needed field goal range and the last pick. There's a minute twenty three and it's a second sick right exactly. You're you're at the thirty two yard line. You just need to get a first down right there right. There's no desperation at all agreed. All right. let's this is incredible conversation. Which i love when we get into. But let's move it along now on the skill position. Players kyle allen's ten snaps. Rene alex smith would have been in a minus b. plus the pics. But with the pixie was a c plus terry maclaurin. I can't believe you didn't get the fumble on the first play a game like of all the guys that didn't get terry had a shot at it like the easy shot at. I'm not downgrading him for that right. I'm just suggesting when you watch that. Play with the all twenty two. You see terry have a good look at it coming late bellyflop and not get it. This is the weirdest thing with those. Fumbles i into slow motion only on fumbles ball on the ground in every you know when you have that dream some people have it in different ways. But i've had a lot of times where you're fighting somebody in your punch. Just doesn't go.
"alex smith" Discussed on Straight Outta Vegas with RJ Bell
"Shoulder injury Alex Smith comes in it was great to see him on the field, but the performance was nowhere close to it. No, and first off, we should have no with cow Allen when you have such small hands, your frail frail scholar. But all joking aside in a way, we owe it to Alex Smith to be candid about the performance we can celebrate and I think we should the amazing perseverance and I'll be honest with you I don't get it. I get wanting to come back to your physical health. I totally get that. And I so respect the amount of work it takes. With an injury like that in the surgery after surgery and oh I mean it's it's it's courageous. That's not too strong a Alex Smith courageous. But when he was on the field, let me ask you as a fan as a human being. I was scared for him. Yeah. I was are they got early on he got sacked and Aaron Donald was was on him and they were standing up and I couldn't help but watch his leg the entire time and almost given aside I of God i. hope the same thing doesn't happen when he got taken down to the ground, it was great to see him but I was terrified that something was going to happen and if you've seen just he had to go because it was so severe he had to go to a special. Unit in San Antonio that deals with bomb blasts. That's how severe is injury was. It wasn't even just a football injury. He was talking with people who went to war had limbs blown off and we're recovering from that. That's how bad the injury was and to see him come back it was it was a little terrifying I for sure and I'm not sure that changes to be honest though obviously as he takes hits, you're gonNA feel like, okay he can take that hitter but that's the thing about these types of injuries there. There's a certain randomness you can't control to them. It's just a certain angle certain moment a certain amount of weight. But it goes to show if you had any doubt. Before you should not have any doubt. Now, these professional athletes are a different breed. There's something in them that motivates them.

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson buys XFL for 15 million dollars
"The XFL, trying to go again, a group including actor former WWe star Dwayne Johnson. The. Rock has agreed to purchase the xfl approximately fifteen million dollars. The XFL declared chapter eleven, bankruptcy April thirteenth, and so who knows maybe the rock make it work? In case you want the numbers, the League average one point nine, million TV viewers per game in two, thousand, twenty, and generate nearly twenty million gross revenues in. In Two thousand twenty, I know you watch more than I did Mike and you thought it was it was good out of the gate at least. What do you think XFL? Can it work again I? Think it can I mean look I think there's going to be more bigger player pool than ever before you know and and we should have some kind of according to Dr I, call him. You know from the Godfather according to Falconry. Dr, Don. According to Don Uchi, we should have some therapeutic or some cure by then. So we can have people in the stands and we can do all that you know I think it's a hell of a deal for him. Now redbird capital partners, they they have an option for seven and a half million of the fifteen. So I think this is all going through and just reading a lot of stuff online today I. Mean, this is a hell of a deal to pay fifteen million dollars to basically get all the all the hardware. Think about the equipment that they're going to get for fifteen million, the video machines, the uniforms, the all this stuff that you could basically would have cost you just it's worth. Sixty, one, million dollars. You get fifteen, it's pretty good deal. Yeah. Johnson as investors include his business partner Danny Garcia Garcia will have an executive position the league and said that both she and Johnson, a hands on approach run the league join John. This is played the you he played in the NFL and he certainly knows. Out of market himself. So curious to see if that can work for the
Jack Del Rio on opt outs: I have views that wouldn’t sit well with my occupation
"Jack del Rio gave an interview to the athletic the other day, and he said, I have personal views probably would not set well with my professional occupation right now, I think I'll just leave it at that. You know I think to me you know this is really the challenge of a coach now dealing with players I'm not saying you you shouldn't have different views than the players but I think you have to keep what you want or what you believe to yourself and treat everybody. And treat everybody. But the right to have their opinion because when you start giving out your opinion as a coach, you're basically saying that the people you're leading their opinions, really not what you're not gonNA listen to those, and I think this is a slippery slope for coaches. If any young coach listening to this is there's a separation between I'm not saying you should be a different person, but I, think you have to keep the professional relationship with the players respectful, and if they believe in their voices need to be heard you need. Need to listen to them the matter what? No matter what your personal beliefs are.

"Ron Rivera is GONNA look at Alex, Smith and say dwayne hands can speed you out not going to happen. Oh, I totally disagree with you I I not only I not only think that he would say that if it were true because you're almost intimating there that he wouldn't say it if it were true like he can't tell Alex Smith that Dwayne Haskins beat 'em out why not because the they won't because I don't think that's GonNa happen because it's not going to happen. There's no way that that football coach is going to say that to Alex. Smith we'll be the PRESEASON NFL poster boy. For his comeback. And you're going to grow. You know first of all, this is such a waste of time. It's such a waste of time because it's just not going to happen. It isn't in you know I know I'm pretty sure. We've talked about this and I, think you agreed with me on this. This organization has to have they've never had self-awareness in the past. Hopefully Ron Rivera has enough self awareness to say you know what this guy did get himself in pretty good shape. He could probably be on the field I, but my God if we put him on the field, if we the Washington football team with our track record of being negligent when it comes to medical and training and and otherwise in the reputation we have if we're the ones that put him on the field, any loses his leg, it's over. They. That that that's an ugly scenario. It wary and it was put again but look and I look for all concerned I think the best thing would be for Alex Smith to take football and go home okay I really. Don't want we both agree play yes I don't think he should play because you're right it's that is an ugly scenario that the redskins would have to deal with too but And then I I don't know what what he does after that Tommy there's some similarities with the Jordan Reed thing. He just signed a one year incentive laden deal in. San. Francisco reunited with Kyle Shanahan and Trent Williams you know I'm not saying that this one into their thought process but it should have they weren't the team that could afford to re-sign Jordan Reed and. Put Him out there and have him get his eighth or ninth or tenth concussion whatever wherever the number is now and and and end up being compromised for life. Let somebody else roll the dice on that it's GonNa. It's GonNa be the same thing with Alex Smith now this is soums that there's some level of self awareness at this point with Ron Rivera in the organization. But If he went to. Uh Los Angeles in backed up jared. Goff for Sean mcvay and Jared Goff got hurt in Alex Smith came in and had another tragic injury God forbid. It would be comeback player of the year incredible that they gave the opportunity nobody thinks he should have been on the field and it's a shame. Let's hope his he keeps his leg his life is saved, and that'll be it if it's this team. They may have to you know you may get goodell getting all the owners together saying look we got two choices here. Here's the vote either Snyder's out or we disband the franchise all together and we and we get out of DC for a few years and we'll come back around twenty twenty five when it's safe. You can't put out Smith out on the field if you're Washington. I'm exaggerating obviously, but you really can't. I get that and. Some aspects you're right but what are your option? dwayne. Haskins. Kyle you you win the job he's not going to win the job but if he asked that question what if he wins to not going to allow them to win the job? Oh well, that's nice. But he I certainly redskins. Tom And we'll tell me look you. You're right about one thing in mind. Shanahan's told both of this both both of us this many times you can't fool the locker room. And if you try to, you'll lose it. How many times did he tell us about you know when the conversations about Griffin came up in the locker room all knew that he wasn't the best player at that position and didn't give them the best chance to win you know in two thousand, thirteen as an example. This is different. Right now you have a culture change you've got an organ you've got so many other priorities. You've got a weird off-season and you've got a player coming off an injury where I bet if he's truly beloved like you say and I'll take your word for it. Most of those guys don't want to see him play again either they may want to see him get to the point where he you can take a ceremonial snap. But they don't want to see him. I mean, imagine the pressure on some left tackle named Jaren Christian. If he's the guy to gives up the sack, they get some injured again. That's a good point that this is why. This is why he shouldn't even be there. He shouldn't even be there I'm like he is I'm GonNa out coach, and now the head coach is singing the praises. You know you just a little aside because I can't help myself. You know because I got all this time on my hands here in the fortress of solitude. You know, and it's almost every tweet from every redskins beat writer about what Rivera said..

"About Alex Smith's wife, he's already made millions and millions with a leg that looked like it was attacked by a great white great white shark and telling him yet get out there. I just I just can't see that. I agree with everything you said there a hundred percent, but that's totally different I understand I understand. Okay. We disagree on if Alex Smith wanted to play got himself ready to play was ruled healthy enough to play and it was a legitimate competition I think Dwayne haskins would win that competition and you think Alex Smith would win it easily and so I understand there are two different things. But the anyway. So with all of that memorial, let me ask you wait. Wait a minute head. Let me ask you a question. Alex Smith. has spent half of this recovery period basically. Not being sick. Seventeen operations. Over the course of that's trying to deal with all kinds of infections this you were the first to report the seventeen in fact. Yes. Surgery. Yes seventeen surgeries. Dwayne Haskins be ahead of Alex Smith in terms of studying the playbook I had a lot more time on his hands well studied a playbook during those seventeen surgeries. Ron Rivera Scott Turner weren't a part of the mix Tommy. They've they've both the playbook in the same time they both got the playbook at the same time and it wasn't. In Alex Smith wasn't not. In a hospital bed. You don't think his priorities were different when he first got the playbook, we don't think he was still trying to get healthy. As opposed to actually thinking about about playing football, where do only thing was stopping Twain Askins was being on the football field working out thirty six. Behind Alex Smith, why do you think? Because this is the veteran exactly and he played in the NFL with his why if this is one hundred percent equal, he will be the starting quarterback no that that would be a reason that he would be in competition to be the starting quarterback. It isn't necessarily the reason he would win the job the winning the job would go to the guy that in this case, they invested a first round pick into is the future as the future. No. I'm saying it doesn't matter. We'll wait a minute. You're giving it. You're you're not giving a real hypothetical then no I am. Hypothetical. DID THAT HE WASN'T A. Last year. Wi, no? No. The real hypothetical is. Who can you look in the face after a quarterback competition and say you want a job and you'll be all starting quarterback You know how this works. You know of Alex Smith out hats. Robber in its first year at coast can't say to his team where starting Dwayne. You know that I just don't think but I don't. But I don't think but I don't think he would be out twain. That show that but that's different stats nothing to do with Wayne be a first round I. See what you're saying okay. We were trying to create all things being equal meaning. No, we're not. We're not taking any of of of the real world factors into this because that will be taken into consideration. If. It's especially if it's close, especially you know. It's the same thing we've set in the past last year I was like if it's close, you gotTa Start Dwayne. We'll. Why will because he's the future in the team's not going to be any good this year let's get him started well, that sort of applies to this year as well. You gotTA. You got to find out if Dwayne can do it or not this year. Not If. You've got a guy who who beats him out in a quarterback competition, who's beloved like Alex Smith and by the way. Like we've talked about before a quick start and a successful season would go a long way towards empowering Ron Rivera in that bill who do you think the owner would want to start all things being equal his best new friend in Alex Smith or the guy that he picked in the first round last year. Question I think he'd be divided. I think Twain House I. Bought Buddy I. think There's one advantage that Alex Smith would have and it's what we were just talking about it would be his veteran experienced and savvy and and the ability to be a really solid game manager if they feel like they're going to have a much improved defense with better coaching and with the addition of chase young and they may be looking at it as you know what? This is the all things being equal hypothetical We just need a game manager and we can win. We can win nine games now. Better than than Alex in many different ways, he's got a bigger arm. He takes more chances. He's more mobile now that Alex probably than Alex is and he is you know young and precocious in our future and we think that he can probably produce much more on the upside. But right now, what we want is we want the gay manager that we saw in two thousand eighteen. Before the injury the guy that isn't going to turn the ball over and we're going to try to win games the old fashioned way like they did on their way to a six three start with a better defense and better coaches that would be much better coach but I'm we're not talking about Alex Smith at thirty six years old being a better quarterback into Wayne. Haskins I just don't think that he obviously beats him out all things being equal and then I, and then when you. I know you do and and and then then you bring in the reality of what this season probably is about and what the future of that position for the franchise is then he'd have to beat him out by a wide margin. To Sit Dwayne, and if that happened, it would be a major indictment on Dwayne and they would already know that Twain's not the guy. You know this year next year beyond if Alex Smith Beats Out Dwayne Haskins Dwayne Haskins is not going to be the quarterback of this franchise in the future they're gonNA play Alex Smith and they're going to hope to gain manage their way to eight wins or nine wins with a good defense and then they're going to solve that problem next off season. Given. Look if our Smith and Wayne Haskins compete for the starting job there is.
Ron Rivera “pleasantly surprised” by how far along Alex Smith is
"Washington football team coach Ron Rivera is not ruling out a return of Alex Smith, who's currently on the physically unable to perform list but is working out on the side. He did some really good things last week, he went through off work or work out days had no residual effect the next morning. You know, which is always important because you know, the next day usually tells he comes out and he's just He's just raring to go, so we'll see how he is this week, and we'll go from there. Smith is coming back from a compound fracture to his leg suffered the Sunday before Thanksgiving 2018.
"So you'll high, what was working on this piece like for you, what? Did you learn first of all I learned how difficult it is for community that so knit to separate itself all of a sudden like what valiant effort. They did to actually do that once they realize what was going on. And the price is heavy prices. They paid I learned how lockdown affects people very differently lockdown, not the same for a young couple with the one kid or a bachelor living alone or with some roommates, as it is for a mother of you know six seven thirteen kids. Another thing I learned. Is You know these people are very positive? Even when I talked to them, and I talked to remember, I talked to people who had very strong complaints. That's that's how I reached them. Even those people at the end. All of them felt it was very important to end with a positive message. Hopeful message that we can all learn to get along better and. They'll never complain. They'll say you know. It's very very hard, but So. That was really inspiring for me. Being myself stuck with three kids at home and much. Full of. Self pity.

So Alex wasn't sure how it would all go down I. Thought I would be getting things thrown at me or like getting shouted from the other side of the street stuff. Like what is the army doing? Hugh, get out of place. I can tell you that as soon as they see us coming there like and they put on the face mask or go to another place. So what do you do you go and knock on people's doors or where? How'd you? How'd you convey this information? No, we do not going to people's homes. We are going close to supermarkets to hospitals.

AG Two things to end the show with today first of all I did want to mention the NFL trade from over the weekend a blockbuster. Trade that saw Jamal Adams go from New York the jets to the seahawks for two first rounders, a third rounder, and a starting safety and Bradley macdougald It's an incredible trade when you think about it from the jets perspective first of all they had disgruntled player. Part of me really hates when the disgruntled player begs for trade and gets his way. Nine get traded to the cowboys, but he got traded to the seahawks and man. The seahawks gave up a lot for a safety. That's the first thing you think about like really to I in a third and a starter at safety for a number safety. Jamal Adams is really good, I mean. We talked about him last year when the redskins played the jets, and it was quite a performance by Adams in that game. If you recall that was really the one start more than any other that Dwayne Haskins really was at a sink and did not look very good at all. That was last year the second start for him he. He started the buffalo game then they had the bye week and then they came back, and they face the jets and it was a beat down. They're down thirty four to nothing or thirty, four three one point, and then join put up some numbers late, but Jamal Adams in the box. A blitzing safety in that game was all over the field in that game. Three sacks four quarterback hits. He was all over the place. There's some really good young safeties in the NFL. Right now in Jamal..

"Right so the Alex Smith thing came out of the blue and again it's great. It's incredible that he's worked himself back into the ability to potentially play pro football again I would wager heavily against it. I would also wager that the redskins fail him on his physical today I. Don't know that for sure but you know there is this insurance policy, and I don't know I mean. I really would be surprised if Alex really wants to get out. Out Onto an NFL field given that he's got generational wealth and take a snap, and put himself at risk again after what he went through I. Mean You can't put yourself in anybody else's position, but I think all of us had we survived. He survived never forget the images of that leg of that flesh eating Sepsis, you not taking away his leg bit by bit was in that hospital nearly dying, and then certainly in danger of losing the leg to save his life. I just can't imagine. Can you that he's going to go out and play professional football. Can you imagine the first time he's under center and he he drops back on third and seven, and here comes the pressure. How but if you're other players just the thought of tackling him or hitting him, it would be a bit much I. Don't think it'll ever happen It's incredible that he's gotten himself close to it happening again, but I just don't see it happening and again. I want this team now. To focus on becoming an NFL franchise again they have a coach that is totally capable of at least for a while if he's given the ability by the owner to you know, implement winning philosophies winning winning structure it least into the football operation. It's time for them to start being competitive again. Start Looking like a professional outfit and if they do that they're going to have a chance to take all t t least get the people that have looked away in recent years to give it another look. That's what I'm hoping for and more so because of what I was talking about j. p. earlier God. Has the last two three weeks been just difficult to deal with. I am not. You know I'm not happy. About the name of the team that plays in the city that I was born and raised in being taken away in this fashion. It's not that. The financial economic you know lost revenue potential without the name change because big companies like Fedex in Bank of America and others really decided once and for all to put a foot down I'm not. I'm not upset with. That I'm upset with the way it's being described because it lumps of us that are lifelong redskin fans into. A recorded. A recorded history of this group of people in Washington, DC with this terribly racist. That allowed this to go on and just how how unconscionable it was for that to happen, and we just know that that is in. That is not illustrative of the facts of this discussion over the years. It just isn't but. it's going to be hard to get people to understand that twenty five twenty years from now ten years from now because the Kellerman in the Florio's and the Peter King's. Don't want you to think that this was ever A. An issue that was debatable numb that it was an issue that was clear cut and those that were against the name change really were insensitive. If Not Racist People and that's the way they want you to feel. That's the way they want. People who view this down the road to think of us as a fan base. and I'm not down with that at all I. Know what the facts are I know what the facts have been I know what the available information has been. I've always been open minded to. The information conflicting with their completely overwhelming, the information that we had off from the other side that native Americans were overwhelmingly offended by this name, but that information just is never been there never not once not one survey, not one poll, not you know over one hundred visits that the team and people associated with the team and people who I trust were on. Never was this terrible injustice that they're making it out to be. It just wasn't. You know We weren't enablers as fans. We should not be ashamed. There is too much information too much factual information that's in conflict with the narrative that they've been making for several years, but now are really making it now that the name has been changed like. Why did it take you so long? Well, the reason is you. People were terribly insensitive people. You really were shameful. Awful People I I'm just I can't I can't do that. I can't be down with that there and I think there's a lot of disingenuous you know. Discussion there. I think they know that Mex, Max Kellerman is not an idiot, you know florio line, but still smart enough still intelligent enough to know what the information's been. You know I know Mike Wise and I've known him for a long time. He is intelligent. He knows the other information that's been out there. He is a he's been very adamant that one person or five percent or ten percent is enough in to. To me, that's a better position. That's more honest position the position of look. I understand there's a lot of conflicting data out there. I understand that it's not the easiest thing to move on from based on the data's. That is out there. However for me I think it's a no brainer because to me, one person offended is enough, and if that's someone's position, and they've been adamant about that position, and they've done a lot. Lot of their own research and been passionate about the issue I am much much better with that. Then the person that claims that this is the N. word. It was always the N. Word in the people had absolutely no basis for continuing to use the word, and they were being insensitive, and they were being racist by using it I just I can't do that. and I'M NOT GONNA. Let them convince me that somehow. Somehow I was a hateful human being for rooting for this football team with this name, and I'm also not gonNA put up with being lectured for the next few years as we deal with this change, and we make mistakes you know in referring to the Redskins and by the way some of them won't be mistakes. Some of them are just gave. They're not mistakes. It's habit you know. It's GonNa. Be No ill intent. There's not going to be an intentional You know effort to be insensitive because there wasn't before. but I'm not going to be lectured. By Mike Florio the name police commissioner about using skins or rooting for a team that still a rooting for a league that still has a few teams with the logo on their site.

"They draw blood and compete a cup or whatever it is, it's quite different so. It, it just seems odd and I. Don't think this is a money. Play on either side of the money's guaranteed this season. I think it's an insurance thing. Yeah maybe that. Maybe maybe there's some contractual stuff to it than I am not aware of yet But I I wrote a call on Saturday morning. That I think, and I don't expect to have them, but Alex Smith ten play and can actually get back on the field. I think that Washington owes within the trade them get him in a place that a lot of very clearly isn't a tear down. Rebuild use movement. It doesn't make sense for them to play Alex or have him on the bench and and I know people will say that you can be a great coach and mentor in the meeting room if that guy has worked this hard to come all the way back and he can actually play. Send them the Tampa for a conditional fifth and let them back up. Tom Brady or let them go back Joe Borough or Shawn Watson I mean. I don't know this is not the right place. For thirty six year old quarterback coming back from a nearly. From life, threatening injury I don't think you know for a lot of reasons. Jp and it's funny as you're talking. Thinking about and I didn't come up with this on the radio show, but. This, organization more than any other I mean it, it could certainly use an inspiring story, but at the same time it cannot it cannot you know withstand some sort of a catastrophic injury that they approved with a with a physical that put him back on the field, and then they put him back field I made just just. Can't you know I I read on the Stephania Bell Peace and she said that the he had received clearance from or the report from her that he had received clearance from his surgical team to return to full football activity. I don't know what that means. If activity versus padded. And Games in contact I think the team's GonNa fail them in his physical today because if he does failed that physical the his salaries fully guaranteed for injury, but the red sox fans can recoup that and I. Don't know what the numbers I've seen multiple numbers, ten and twelve. I've seen ten to twelve million dollars in the insurance policy that they took out on his contract if he had a catastrophic ending injury. Look personally. I. Don't WanNa. See Him after seeing that leg on that project eleven documentary. There's no way I ever want to see him on a football field. Can you imagine the cringe-worthy Watch that would be Alex Smith being pressured in the pocket? Are you kidding me? I can't happen. I agree and reading the quotes like the actual coast from Alex in the story made. It seem like this is more of a life thing because he said he's like yeah, I can go skiing or snowboarding again i. His quotes versus you headline of Alex Smith cleared for football activity struck me differently But I. You know what I'm most curious about because I. I still don't think the Alex thing is happening May. Maybe I'll be proved wrong I from what the people I talked to I. Don't exciting test physical either. I? WanNa. Know what's going on with, Kyle because I've been sor- I circle back to some comments. Ron made that way back in April foot about hey, if we have a short and training, camp and preseason, we'd be very comfortable going with Kyle because he already knows the system, and now here we are where training camp. Is Not going to be normal. There's no preseason that. I'm trying to and maybe I'm dumb for trying, but I'm trying to get back into football most. What's actually going to happen on the field and That to me is the biggest question wash. Well and let me add to that because I. don't want this to come off as crass or heartless, but I'm. Any human beings totally inspired by Alex Smith being cleared for football activity. Whatever that in everybody you know is super happy for him. I thought the best part of that project. Eleven was to seem at the end of that thing running around with his kids in sort of Jing a little bit. You know on on on the leg I mean he was near death, and certainly was very near in Robin West basically advocating I'm recommending that they amputate that leg but you know this franchise It's time look. It may not happen. Who knows if there's going to? To be a season, but let's just assume for the purposes of this conversation that there's going to be I'm ready to talk some football. I'm ready to see how good this defense is ready to see. dwayne on the field. That's all I wanNA see I. Don't WanNa. See Lyle out there and you know I don't also want the redskins organization, which they are prone to do to get wrapped up in things that really have nothing to do with the football operation like a ceremonial snap or any of that you know to your point. If he really wants to play, then trade him. I I just this is inspiring at the same time. He's not going to be a significant. He's never going to play again. In my view and I certainly don't want playing for this team and I want the focus to be on whether or not they can become a professional football operation which they haven't been for a long period of time, but I feel good that Ron. Rivera can tournament to one but I. Don't want all these I. Don't want again I don't. This is not an uncaring response. It's just practical I'm happy for him on one hand and I went just football on the other I don't want want an effort to to finish square. Peg into a round hole. With you I'll tell you what I'll come on again later. In the week after we talked to Ron Tomorrow and had a little clarity. Maybe on what's going to happen, Neil let's do that I, know you got to run, and you've been kind enough to give me this time with with the girls and all of your responsibilities at home I'll talk to you soon.

The move created confusion at hospitals and alarmed public health experts who worry about public access to this important data. We're joined now to talk about this with the NPR's Ping Pong. Thanks so much for being with US warning. Scott H here. This new reporting change has been affections wins day. Can we tell how it's going? Yes, so it's been a mixed bag I've heard from a few hospitals around the country. Some say it's been really hard. Some say it's been really confusing and other states been okay, but they're still sorting out the details of the change, but according to hhs more hospitals have been reporting this week that have in the recent past and they say that was one of the reasons. They wanted to implement this new system. Stripper Ping which changed for a hospital. Okay, well for a couple of months since the beginning of the pandemic hospitals have been reporting this daily data about the number of covid patients, they have the number of beds and ventilators. They have available to the CDC and the CDC has been gathering this data they've been. They've been putting up on their website to give updates on hospital capacity, which is you know whether hospitals have enough resources and protective gear to take care of the covid nineteen patients that are coming in, but under this new rule, hospitals are now supposed to report the state up either to their state health departments or to a different system called talent tracking, which has been set up by a private company, and which provides data directly to HHS, shall hospital still report the data just somewhere else What has some experts and officials so concerned? Yes so hospitals are still required to report the data, but they say it's been a big burden to change things up right now. Especially for those facing certain coronavirus, cases and doctors have also pointed out that the administration seems to be saying. Hospitals have to use this new reporting system to gain access to federal supply from decifit here, which is one of the only drugs known to work against covid nineteen. Top scientists at the CDC says these new reporting methods ignore valuable experience at the CDC has gathering this data? Here's Dr Daniel! POLLICK! We have a long standing working relationship with the hospitals. We have means of being able to quality checks over the incoming data. He's not sure that the information coming in from these other methods will be as good as the data CDC was collecting and public health experts have also been raising concerns basie this in the context of the administration fighting federal scientists over Corona Virus Advice, and they say this could be part of a pattern in which the administration is trying to sideline the CDC The nation's public health agency in the middle of a pandemic. And this week CDC website that the chaired that hospital data with the public went dark for dare to do. We know what happened. Yes, oh. This is the website that was getting updated three times a week, and it went down briefly, and then it came online again, but it's using old data and reporting from Alex Smith at member station K. C. You are in Missouri, says hospitals there are currently without access to critical data. They've been using for their daily and weekly reports. They hope the issues will be sorted out in the next days or even weeks, but in the meantime the Missouri Hospital Association says they'll be very much in the dark

"Because quarterbacks he played the position he has a great belief in the way he wants things done and it's like nothing will ever satisfy him except for his boy. Colt but I think he realizes colts limitations too but anyway I talked about how in the two thousand eighteen season before the Alex Smith injury. I knew this in a lot of other people knew this I. I'm pretty sure I have talked about this before. But Jay was very frustrated with Alex Smith Now it's the early part of their relationship you know. They've only played eight games together. You know there's the possibility that it's going to be better. But I I think Jay really didn't adapt to with Alex Smith did well necessarily. I mean we saw some Rpo but we didn't see enough quick game. We didn't see enough west coast. We didn't see enough getting on the move and I talked about that during the season. The game that sticks out to me is the Colt Game. Week to when the colts are playing soft zone. Start to finish and the Redskins can't pitch and catch like they would have the previous years you know not they were great at when teams were in soft zone. Kirk just getting it out quickly to somebody you know a six-yard hitch in boom. You know eight yards. The next one was four yards moved the chains they jay never adapted his offense style. Smith I put that on Jay but he was very frustrated. You know in practices and in Games. Because he didn't feel like Alex Smith was really getting it. I also think that he didn't adapt to Alex Smith strengths. But yeah that was going on and when Colt McCoy came in and GP. And I were talking about this time. He yesterday he certainly. No one was happy to see Alex. Smith get hurt away got hurt. That's not of course. Nobody was rooting for that. But I remember saying at the time Jay Gruden if you injected truth serum into Jagran. Right now he would tell you with Colt McCoy. The offense is on the verge of stuff and I think he really was confident. In and Colt had a short work. Week to prepare for the cowboys on Thanksgiving Day. Which happened to have been the date at Alex? Smith really started to get sick in the hospital And then if you recall Jay was really really bullish about the amount of time that that Colt had to prepare for the eagles Monday night game. Yes yes absolutely. You know all this does is just one more illustrations.

"Fix Tuesday Tommy's in not in but by phone errands at home. He'll edit this thing when it's done. I have my mock schedule. My redskins mock schedule an annual dumb tradition that I've been doing I don't know how many years in a row Tommy. I think it's twelve or thirteen years. I've been doing this On radio and podcast last year only and now both this year We're going to get to the latest tweet from D. H. Simba Seven Oh boy Don Shula I wanNA talk to you about Shula in his standing and I know you have some thoughts on Alex Smith. The last stance And a few other things. But I'M GONNA real quickly I'm GonNa Start with some Alex Smith stuff because I got to tweets that I wanted to share with you This tweet came from Yancey yesterday. Yancey said I'm beginning to think that Alex Smith can return from this injury. What perseverance what fortitude. What a story. I think he's going to play again at some point that was from. Yancey and let me just read the second. One real quickly from Kevin He writes she. Why don't you want Alex Smith to play? And then he goes on to accuse me of not being in Alex Smith Fan. Which by the way. I've said this before is just utterly untrue. You know some of you are really really you have the NFL? You just don't have the ability to sort of see things as potentially mutually exclusive of one another. Just because. I didn't think that Alex Smith had a good twenty eighteen and didn't think he was playing very well and didn't think the offense was very good doesn't mean that. I dislike Alex Smith. I wanted the trade. I was in favor of the trade not the extension but the trade. I was a fan of Alex Smith when he was a Kansas City. Tommy you or may not re- remember this and the only reason I remembered quite honestly because Dan Steinberg reminded me of this. He tweeted out something. When when the redskins traded for Alex Smith Steinberg I? I'm pretty sure re tweeted a tweet of mine from like three years previous to that where I said I believe that Kirk cousins can become an Alex Smith or Andy Dalton type of starter. Which by the way was a compliment So I always liked Alex Smith. Now why don't I want Alex Smith the play because after watching that program the other night in particular? I don't want him to put himself at risk of playing. He's got a beautiful family He has all the money he'll ever need. I don't WanNa see them. Take the risk and play professional football. I'd love to see him get himself into position to play professional football but by the way to Yancey who said he's beginning to think that Alex Smith can play. There's nothing that convinced me. More that Alex Smith will never be able to play again then. That documentary the documentary. The other night tummy that the grotesque pictures in particular of the flesh eating bacteria in the process of carving away essentially most of his leg between his knee and ankle. I don't know how anybody could look at that picture and think that he's ever going to play football again. I'm just so happy. He's able to walk around on two legs and play with his kids. Anyway that's how I want to get out the show. What do you say well look? I mean they're going. They're going to start showing pictures. Ovallis from its leg on the concourse at Fedex field..

"Was a Hornet's nest. You're breathing about the break. The record in the Dome Football. But that that Falcons game at home I remember that one because I I think it was like twenty one fourteen and then I think it was twenty one ten twenty one seven and then I if I remember rightly skins scored before FM. It's all right. Take a breath. Catch you know come out at halftime. And then they got beat deep Calvin Ridley to go like twenty eight fourteen at halftime and it was just a wrap so I I don't remember on the. I don't know that they were a house of cards. Because we're other bad teeth. If you look at the back out of that schedule you know. They beat the Jaguars. They almost beat the titans. Josh Johnson. I think they get to at least nine wins. They were at six point. Nine nine nine. I'm not I'm not. I'm not going to debate you on. Whether or not they would have gotten to nine in succeed in the playoffs. I just didn't think they were good team now. I did think this was the team. That actually was well coached for that. Six two six and three start. They didn't commit mistakes. They didn't they won the turnover battle. They were winning field position battle. They were stopping the run and running the football which was huge. It was one of the things I remember saying very clearly about Alex Smith when he got here. You've got to be able to run the football or it'll be a disaster. It won't work with him. And that's what he always was. One of those quarterbacks in this is not a criticism. It's just that most quarterbacks that are good need a lot around them the he he wasn't at that elite level. No one would've ever put him there but anyway the the point that I was going to make was that you know that Houston game was GonNa make him six and four. It was one of his worst games. that he was in the process of and yet yeah. S. Hundred Yard Return. I think Dow hit a couple of turnovers in that game. The Dallas Thanksgiving Day game short week then Philly on a Monday night. It was very possible that they were heading to six and six but again nine and seven. Whatever the point that I was going to make. Is this what a lot of people didn't know about that time? And you know this I'm pretty sure. Is You know the person that was most frustrated with Alex and the offense was the head coach. There was very And I've talked about this before. It was not a great fit. Bruce made that trade. It was not the best fit for GRUDEN. Necessarily IN GRUDEN was pulling his hair out at times. You know now. Look grooten was a perfectionist. I don't think the that Dan Marino would please Jay gruden because any and it's just the way he was you know he was that way with Kirk towards the end but early in that season there was major frustration disconnect between he and Alex not that he didn't like Alex and didn't understand and respect the leadership part of them but it wasn't the best fit now doesn't mean that it wasn't on the verge of becoming a better fit they only you know they had only been together for one off season and nine games takes a while at that position but it was a frustrating passing offense for sure it was not. Oh it Smith's best year by a long shot well and there were a couple of factors right. I mean for. How long did JAY WANNA go with? Colt? I think he wanted to go with cold. They knew Kirk was finally.

Finding Value from LinkedIn Connections Off of LinkedIn - Alex Smith
"Today. Got Another tip from Alex Smith. Here he is. Hey Gang as of this recording some of you may know I've been in a sales job search lately from a layoff in despite a lot of interviews I've had I'm seeing a lot of companies in holding patterns recently and they're really slow to get back so I've really been doubling down on Lincoln lately. The one thing that I found that's really working formula. Lincoln was something that really came as a surprise in his might tip for today more people than you realize are willing to have a conversation with you outside of Lincoln than inside of it with a good strategy. You can create some really valuable relationships. I have to admit I was a little hesitant to ask people for their time. Outside on linked in without much of anything I can give them return if you think about it. I'm reaching out to quota carrying top beat. Abi Sales people to network and they're willing to spend a few minutes and hop on a phone call or zoom call with me this despite the fact that they have a number two hit themselves and way less prospects are entering their phones and emails right now but when you think about it. Great sales people don't expect a give to get. They live life to learn and just listening to you is all the Roi. They need for their time. So I don't take it lightly that anyone would want to give me their time and the agendas of our calls is really just genuinely getting to know each other. I used to think Lincoln was purely numbers in engagement game. And maybe in some way it is but at its core. It's still a platform comprised of people people who all have something to offer and we can all learn from a Lincoln connection is so much more than just another number and when you grow your connections. Don't ever lose sight of building connection. Growing connections isn't the same as creating connection growing your connections can be done in a split second but creating connection requires intention and giving on both sides of a relationship so I thought to myself. Why can't we all just use this time to create connection not just adding connections? We all have an opportunity to move beyond the one time connection right now. I've had so many great phone calls with completely new people recently. I've had a minimum of at least five new calls scheduled each week with new connections and none of the call started off trying to sell anything or have any other agenda from either party tied to it other than genuinely knowing people beyond their profiles. So how can we make connections more valuable to others and ourselves? Why I thought offer a few quick strategies than I'm using would love to hear your take. So here's a few things that are working for me. First thing I'm going to steal is from someone that reach out to me and I loved her approach. So shout out to Sara Marie Clark Brand Consultant for Jack Neater Consulting. So my first tip is be genuine with your ten. Sarah was really genuine with me when she responded to my connection request an interest on she said. Hey Alex thank you so much for your kind words and thank you for connecting. I love to make this connection genuinely valuable to you and not just another number. What is the best way? I can support your growth. Are you open to a call? This week to collaborate and explore our connection. I didn't know Sarah from anything. I'm not in brand consulting and didn't specifically want something from her and she didn't want anything from me but her starting off relationship saying she didn't want to just be another number asking how she could help me and asking if I was open to. A call really presented her as genuine. We had a really great call and I've used a similar approach to reach out and meet new. People linked in second tip build people up through community. I've reached out to people from communities. I've been on lately Y- whether it was hopping on a linked in live Webinar training. Sometimes if you zoom causing communities. I'm in and many of the top sales people in Lincoln. Organizing resume calls right now. I definitely suggest getting on them. But what I do is reference. The call compliment them on what they said. And what it meant to me. It really feels good to people to let them know how they impacted you so when you ask for their time they they don't think you have a hidden agenda. They want to go deeper on the topic with you number. Three the Lincoln activity tab is gold. I used to reach out and mentioned someone's profile when reaching out but finding what people have commented on from their activity shows the other person. You really see them. You plan the same lanes. You're one of the same tribe. You're more of an insider asking for time in someone outside of the club banging to get in reference that in your outreach. Hey really loved what you wrote on so-and-so's post it made me think of x the have a few minutes to talk with. Love the run some suggestions questions by you giving your knowledge on this value any advice you may have in this area. And lastly be specific and ask for their time. You have to give them a reason for having a call could be making yourself a better candidate to an employer. You value their perspective on an industry where you want to get their thoughts on a sale situation. You're dealing with include that in your outreach. I also like to say even just a few minutes helps. I know your time's valuable. So that's some quick things that I'm using finally. Don't even think you need to have a specific ask. It could just be you feel a genuine connection with some content and you WanNa meet them so tell them why. I urge you all to pick a few people who genuinely respect on linked in but haven't met outside of it and try to meet them. You just might be surprised who accepts the invited. The massive value that can come
Selling Internally: Prepare for Impact - Alex Smith
"Have you ever had a great idea at your workplace but it was never implemented? I've had ideas. That had amazing excitement and launch and others that are currently sitting in an idea. Graveyard somewhere in likely will never be brought back to life and everything in between so my tip today will help you with actionable ways to prepare you to present your next idea work so that it has the best chance to make the biggest impact. I'm someone that always loves challenging myself to come up with new ways of doing things. I really look at sales as an art form. And it's up to us to be creative on how we want to approach it. If I ever lose a sale I always want to ask what I could have done differently so I started doing the same with ideas. One consistent theme that I began to notice was that all of my improvements really centered around how they were presented and my process ideas are no different than the products and services. You might be selling so why not adopt similar sales processes the next time you need to present them. Many of us know the importance of getting our sales process right. We put intricate detail into them. They are the lenses that make our forecasts crystal clear any smudge on the Lens and we clean it up immediately. We've all learned some amazing processes. Whether it's been from David Weiss and MED picker trae Simonson and Joint Action Plan. Whatever process you liked US urge you to treat your ideas with the same level of care that you would to one of your sales plans. Your ideas reflect your creativity and you want to give them the best chance to succeed so list out your ideas and go through deliberate sales process with each. I guarantee you could translate whatever current sales process or process. You subscribe to in order to sell your ideas. Just think about it. Each idea will solve a problem for your organization and delivers a specific impact. List out each idea. The problem it solves and next to the impact your organization if you solve it a pick chart for ideas if you will make the idea personal your boss. Might WanNa make quota but your CEO needs to increase market share. You need to know how your idea and show how your idea generates revenue in quantify it and you need to create urgency. How will this get your boss and upper management's attention to act create a chart enlist this all out? One of my favorite sales quotes also applies to ideas. If the problem is the reason to change the impact is the urgency to change. I like to say things like if we continue to do things this way. This is what we might be risking or not capturing by failing to try this when you create impact. Make it massive. If it is a massive likely won't gain enough attention or to really catch on you want momentum and excitement you're looking for. I love that idea. Let's do it not. Oh yeah that's a good idea. And then crickets. Can you gain support for the idea across the organization if so with WHO? What's your budgeting process? Look like budget timelines. Does it require a financial investment? If so what's the ROI even better? Can we start with no revenue investment if the investment is not revenue but just productivity time clearly spelled out all things you can put in a chart? You're going for. How can you make it really easy? For Management to say yes remove friction and make them think that they lead little to no extra work on their end and this will just be extra money. That's coming in mark. Cuban one set a great quote when he said the greatest value you offer to. Your boss is to reduce their stress so clearly show them. How your idea does that for them? I'm always eager to get ideas out there but to make them really catch on. We need to put a deliberate process behind them. There's so many examples of people doing that in this community who came up with a new idea. Internally to increase visibility with senior execs get promoted increase influence at companies and learn along the way a quote that really guides me on the importance of selling ideas and building. Excitement was said by the iconic businesswoman and founder of Mary. Kay Cosmetics Mary. Kay Ash when she said a mediocre idea that generates enthusiasm will always go further than a great idea that inspires no one so I urge you to go forth and create a killer process with your next idea at work in generate incredible excitement at your organization. I'd love to hear from you on what ideas you've pitched that worked well and maybe also we can swap stories of one's that didn't talk about why. I'm always gained a chat.

What could happen coming into the NFL? At this at this age aids but I think I was putting a great situation and all we always talk about it but to be able to learn from Alex Smith and then be with coach. Read in the had the playmakers I have around. Tell me why culture of winning I was putting the perfect situation and maximize it every single day and It's been good so far and I'm trying to keep it going when you have already done this much at such a young age. How does it change if that all kind of your view looking forward of what you hope might be? Yeah I mean he just wanted to go other do more. You want to go out there and win more super bowls you want to go out there and keep competing with this team and You understand that. It's a hard process hard. To get there with the guys I have around me career the the attitude of the mindset to go out there and try to do this again next year. How long will it take you to get back to the people in your phone? So take a while. I'd like two hundred seventy messages right now. So I'm up to spend a whole day on a after the parade or something and have you had any chance to sort of see like wait. I don't even know who this his holy crap that's so and so. Have you had that moment. Where somebody that you've somebody really admire has reached out? Yeah I think the funniest thing is as I was looking through the messages I saw at a message from Brett Farve Peyton Manning Troy Paula Mojo Brusca. Bobby Wagner all these guys in this the have that support and from everybody from from different sports. I mean it just shows that I it was special what we did a lot of respect for those guys not appreciate in reaching out
"alex smith" Discussed on The Kevin Sheehan Show
"How in God's name did they go oh for that fourth and one or why did he punted on fourth and one this this game is for the number two seed in the NFC play you gotta go for it? You know things like that but we never ever have a chance to have those kinds of because they're not an NFL franchise play in the NFL but they're not an NFL franchise life but they're about to become one. Aren't they buddy or are they about to become aren't they about become one isn't change on the horizon. Yes so all right. So let's go there because we got to get to Strasbourg prosper gear and there are other things too but couple of things So I do believe that. There's a chance something will happen this week. Talking about it for a few weeks now on this was You know and I felt for a while. That Bruce Allen's not coming back I think the sound era is GonNa end I do I. I don't know that I'm not reporting it But it's a pretty informed formed hunch that they're going to move in another direction. They're going to be changes. I think I felt the same way last year. Based on a lot of the same sort of informed hunches understand that that this time last year I was pretty bought in sold when they got eliminated. I thought there was no chance Bruce Allin was coming back. I didn't think GRUDEN was coming back. I thought there would be major. Change in there wasn't so when you have sort of an owner who is impulsive and you know He could change his mind. My bet is he's not going to they're going to be changes but then I saw something this morning talked about this on the radio show. Maybe you know who these people are. Do you know who pro football Prof pro football network is the pro football now. I don't nor I'd never heard of them either but they put out a tweet that somebody sent to me overnight and I saw it early this morning. They wrote that according to Albright. NFL that's Benjamin Albright. He is Scott. It's got eighty six thousand followers. He's a Colorado Denver guy and an NFL reporter. He may host a show in Denver. That may be how we know that that name. And maybe he's had a story before but he reported that chiefs coordinator Eric Be enemies somebody to watch his early front runner for the Redskins head coaching job. When I read that it eight immediately triggered the following response? Because I've talked about this on the podcast going back. You know three weeks almost a month now. Dan Snyder's new golden. Boy Is Alex Smith Right. He really likes Alex Smith A lot. They get along and sits next film during Games. And you know I. I talked about this about a month ago that you know if Alex doesn't come back as a player don't be shocked if he comes back in another capacity. Well Eric B enemy and Alex Smith know each other very well. Eric Enemies Bench in Kansas City. On Andy Reid Staff for since twenty twelve or twenty thirteen. It's been five six seven years something like that. So he was there for Alex Smith and if the enemy is being considered. There's no doubt in my mind that there's Alex Smith influence in us because Dan Snyder wouldn't know Eric Danny from anybody else So Alex Smith you know that's one potential path here. That wouldn't shock me. Is Alex Smith having a significant job in the organization. I Eric B enemy being sought after to be the head coach and that's the direction they go in. That wouldn't surprise me either. There are other paths that I think are out there now. What about the todd? Bowles JOE GIBBS CBS path. And don't forget when Jagran was fired. You know offshore books. Were putting up blinds and Eric. B enemy was the favorite day. Jay Gruden was fired. True remember we weren't sure sure. What the reason why? The reason was that he was going to be the number. One on anyone's you're right Erin. That's exactly right and be enemy is going to be sought after. Yeah I any eighteen with an opening. Yes but what about the todd Bowles Joe Gibbs connect. Well that's always a connection that I thought was a good one I'm not hearing. I haven't heard anything about that recently. Also keep in mind Tampa's defense this year's not been very allies with bowls but that wouldn't deter me at all The this would so four owner that let's just say he rids himself of perhaps his his biggest. You know weight right now. Which would be Bruce Allin in terms of his ability to go out and create something new? That's legitimate without just taking people that are unemployed employed you know. That's basically what they do with their coaching staff flashers. They had to take people who were out of coaching or didn't have any other opportunities now. Part of that was because Jay Gruden was perceived is lame duck. I understand that but you know Alex Smith may be his opportunity to be perceived as legitimate intimate. Would Alex Smith do you think co first of all would he and then the second part is could he would he tell Dan Snyder or no not about the job but just no I mean because part of the problem. Let's face it. Dan Snyder does not employ people who will say not him. That's right not you're right about that Sell what would Alex Smith. I would say they'll feel phil confident enough and powerful enough to to to say you know you're wrong Dan. You can't do this. I have no idea but I would lean no. I would lean no because because from what I've heard. Alex Smith Really Likes Twain. Haskins which by the way the owner really likes Twain Atkins and not to say that. That's the only reason he saying he likes. Join Haskins to buddy up with the owner. Potentially get a big time job maybe maybe the GM job you know it would be out of the box higher. But we've seen more of those in recent years witness. What happened in San Francisco Online? John Lynch if they were going to hire out of the box sorry thom he don't comment on this. I would hire Chris schooling because he's been right about every single college player that he is analyzed including the guy that he said he would taken a quarterback which is drew lock. I don't know if he's right about drew. We're lucky at one good game. I'm I'm exaggerating. But it looks like he can play maybe How would we feel about Alex? Smith how people were very excited very excite Whi while because Alex Smith is perceived as a unblemished untouched inexperienced to yes S.. Put but unspoiled. You know like he's. He is a bright light and Dan. Snyder is is the darkness and and I think people would love to bask in the bright light of Alex Smith. The human being as much as anything you know because it's been a long time time since you've had a human being charged at Redskins Park. Let's face it you know. It's interesting Vinnie Serrato. You know this I think to a certain degree he was obviously not legitimately qualified to be an NFL general manager. I shouldn't say wasn't qualified. He wasn't a good but he he actually was a good guy. Well Kevin you can't be a good guy and carry out and be henchman okay. You can't vote now. You can be a a good guy. You can be a guy that you can't respect. Yeah that's like saying like a mall Pitman. Well he was a good guy. Well you know he was a good guy. I follow me all around on this podcast and I think your family well and all that was not a good guy. He wasn't evil like Brunell Nelson. That's the thing that's my point. Is that Vinnie. Actually you know was I think he was a decent human being okay but he can't he can't be a decent human being and work for dance. You can't do well anyway. This enemy Alex Smith thing the enemy news. I don't know if it's credible or not. Not Let me just start there. I don't know enough about Addow Albright. NFL or pro football network. You know this wasn't pro football talk you know. This wasn't pro football focus on they don't do reporting but I I don't know how credible it is. Credible it is. I do have a sense that Alex Smith is one of the new favorite people. Colin Dan Snyder's life and that he really respects him and he gets along with them and that he really That he that he believes believes in in what he believes in like he he. He Views Alex. Smith is a really good smart resource. Okay Paul Resource may ask you something hold on. I just want to say one thing I don. I don't think I'd have a problem with it because just like when Mike in Bruce came in here versus Dan invented it was like it. Just beat the hell out of the alternative in in the moment and I think I would feel that way but Alex Smith has no experience to be a general manager not they brought them in in another capacity and elevated Kyle Smith to General Manager and Alex Smith was somehow influential and the decision maker. Maybe he was you know Director of personnel. I will see you got some sort of title director of Dan Snyder You know I don't. I don't know that I have a problem with it. And I don't know that Eric Enemy to me is very intriguing. But they've ed some talent and Kansas City. Let's not forget that they got tyreek Hill. They got Travis Kelsey. They've they did have Kareem Hunt. They've got a guy you may have heard of them. Patrick Mahomes a quarterback Haskins to me so far even though I've been more positive than negative not Patrick Mahomes. He's not even drew lock. Well it's one game that drew. Okay well I know that I'm still waiting for the one. I'm sorry I'm still waiting for the one game from Twain Haskins I know so I'll Kevin yes. If there is a Bruce Allin departure is friendly. And if it's friendly does that mean Bruce Oun we'll still have a voice voice in the organization can as an advisor or him. I don't have the answer but he can't tell me you can't have them you could. He's got to retire. Hire or be fired so that you can get the maximum benefit of his exit. If he's reassigned well it wouldn't surprise me because is Dan. Snyder is clearly detached from what is fan base or majority of the fan base. Thanks but nobody then is going to buy into it. Nobody is now if you wanted to hire him. Name is an outside consultant for the stadium. You know okay. But he can't be in the building by the way that would be at least agree with me building. I agree or you don't the benefit of having a short term benefit. You're going to get from his exit and trust me. It will be short term. Whatever short term benefit you'll get you're not gonNa get if he's still connected with the team in any way shape or form and hire him as a consultant for the stadium is an absolute waste of time a waste of time? Yeah I I don't I don't have any influence on the stadium. You still think about it. Just as quick.
Submarine Hobbyists Help Researchers On Montana's Flathead Lake
"Something unusual was bubbling underneath the surface of northwest montana's flathead lake this summer submarines the subs pilots. We're helping cash-strapped researchers helping them explore the depths of flathead lake for free and study the lake's ecosystem aaron bolton with montana public radio radio explains it can be hard for research divers to see what's at the bottom of deep bodies of water like flathead lake unless of course they have a submarine marie. We'll be a good test right. That's right and grab a screamer this summer. A group of submarine hobbyists is who build subs themselves spent a week on flathead lake as volunteers. One of them is hancock who lives in nearby hype bridge columbia on a recent tuesday morning we get into his two man submarine smaller than a compact car already bobbing on the lakes crystal clear surface khun bang on forty feet. They're wanting to go down. Okay all right. We're gonna die prong cane to north west montana to help researchers explore the bottom of flathead lake which is three hundred eighty feet at its deepest point <music> fourteen feet from the renou slope icy prox- sub is the people of going much deeper than the bio stations research divers limit of one hundred feet. One of the stations research scientist is jim craft. He says deep water research research is expensive unless you're going to do a lot with them to put out you know twenty thousand dollars or so for rover or shoot in autumn how much a submarine cost but he does know they don't do enough research that deep to justify the cost but the sediment and algae samples collected on this expedition might lead to more deepwater research video will also help researchers examined invasive mices shrimp so understanding their habits in what author doing is really nice. This scientific reconnaissance wouldn't have been financially feasible for the bio station without proc. The sub hobbyists are members burs of inner space science a collective that connects researchers with private submarine owners when we started it two years ago. Alex smith is the site's founder and seems to be working out the group's seven members solicit expedition ideas from researchers through their website and because they're not commercial operators. No money exchanges his hands. They're just in it for the experience. It's much more rewarding to use your sub that way than to just putter around and just come home with a family family video. Something smith hopes the resulting research will bring in more expedition requests back on the bottom of flathead lake sub owner hand crank and a fellow inner space science member have found some of those invasive mice shrimp beginning their daily migration gracious to feed on the surface. Yes so they're they're so tiny. The mices population has fueled old in explosion of invasive lake trout since the nineteen eighties significantly reducing numbers of native trout species the resulting data from the partnership between the hobbyists owners and researchers could help lake managers understand what's happening with trout populations and how they might restore the ecosystem for n._p._r.

The NFL's best and worst offensive arsenals: Barnwell's 32-1 ranking
"Barnwell writes these very lengthy pieces on E._S._p._N.. Dot Com and he wrote a piece that that came out early this morning ranking the N._F._L.'s. Goals offensive arsenals thirty two worst all the way to number one <hes> and basically you know he's considering how the players that the teams have will perform in twenty nineteen. He's not necessarily really just basing it off of recent <hes> recent performance. He's he's he's guessing on what you know. It will be in two thousand nineteen any says also that the as as a preface it with a lengthy the preview before he started ranking them of course in love with is that the arsenals are weighted <hes> the arsenal rankings are weighted more towards receivers than tight ends or running backs <hes> any says also the top elite level talent wins out over depth anyway the rankings start with the thirty second ranked offense of Arsenal Jacksonville Bennett's Denver Miami Seattle and then the Redskins so the redskins have the fifth worst offensive offensive arsenal in the N._F._l.. According to a bill barnwell any rights the investments Washington is made it wide receiver haven't worked out former former seahawks wide out Paul Richardson signed to a five year forty million dollar deal wasn't healthy and Seattle and cautious watches twenty passes in seven games last season former first rounder. Josh DACHSHUND hasn't developed in Washington. Just decline the fifth year option on Dachshund Jamison crowder left the jets <hes> mister relevant Trey Quinn will be as replacement Jay Gruden gruden drafted Terry maclaurin in the third round but there but is there any reason to think Washington is going to start developing whiteouts effectively. This is likely the league's worst group of starting wide receivers while that's the kind those kind the tools you wanNA put around a rookie quarterback and you know the funny thing is according to warn sharp. This is the most expensive offense in the N._F._l.. This mostly costly offense. Well take the field the N._F._l.. Because of the Investment Alex Smith and you know that is not going to write to pay off <hes> yes so I mean again another reason why you you WanNa put this on this limited offense in the hands hands of a quarterback who understands limitations in that case keenum. It's Cole McCoy too but I'm going to operate on the assumption that cultures isn't going to stay healthy so <hes> that's case keenum you don't want to <hes> experiment and test out a rookie <hes> with these with these kind of weapons <hes> especially if you're Jay Gruden and you know you have the expectation or the hope and we're assuming he does is of of having team good enough for him to remain as head coach. You know what's interesting. I was thinking about this as I was reading this early this morning. <hes> that the redskins according to Barnwell look I mean I don't know if it's the worst it's certainly among the five for six worst greg in a starting wide receiver groups and the N._F._l.. And we we know that you know in terms of offensive weapons they don't have much. I mean you have to pray. The Jordan Reed comes back plays thirteen games in his Jordan Jordan Reed again. You got to hope that Chris Thompson is a weapon out of the backfield. The dairy skies pays off as a second round pick and turns into a a guy that with Adrian Peterson is a big time back that that that <hes> Vernon Davis continues to be effective in it somebody somebody whether it's Richardson Dachshund or Harmon or maclaurin. Somebody steps up you.
Broncos trading Keenum to Redskins
"Case keenum to the Washington Redskins that one will officially happen next week as well bought they swapped late round picks, the split his salary keenum expendable in Denver. With of course, Joe flacco now in a Broncos uniform. So the Broncos really stopgap quarterbacks last year, it was case keenum this year's going to be Joe flacco course, Peyton Manning was not a stopgap when they got him in John Elway zero. That was a big time acquisition that helped the Broncos win a Super Bowl and get to another one. So the last couple of years though, they're trying to find some magic here with some guys off the scrap heap. I don't know how much flacco has left in the tank we'll find out in twenty nineteen. But case keenum to me is a good backup quarterback in the NFL. I guess he's an okay starter on a mediocre to bad team. Maybe, but I don't see case keenum the long-term answer in DC. They had to do some where you really going to go into the season with an injured Alex Smith and Colt McCoy and a rookie if they were to drop on. We'll talk more about the
"alex smith" Discussed on The ThomaHawk Show
"Put those rumors the bed and say no it's not me guys got the wrong guy i are definitely still in washington only to find out a little bit later that he actually was the guy the guy traded so i'm saying it's time to get a new aged kendall yes it stabbing in a new aged it's good that you had a new team because they didn't think very highly of you to tell you hey the trading bloc yeah it would be nice to maybe give him a heads up next on hey manual and traded that that that little lie the wind out of a lot of brown's hands when they seen it alex smith was going to the washington redskins i think that was like the over that the overall feeling here that that people thought we had a chance at alec smith and cleveland yet john dorsey the new general manager for the browns comes here from kansas city via uh unemployment let's say and since he got let go or step down in kansas city last year and i think that was the natural connection for everybody i think it's pretty well known that dorsey is a guy that doesn't want to play with the rookie quarterback he thought really highly of alex smith and i think everyone sort of expected that sort of naturally to happen because there wasn't any obvious trade destinations for alec smith outside of the browns and all of a sudden outta nowhere in a time that nobody expects now we wake up and he gets treated to the redskins so now browns fans are panicking is that that make the browns fant like through that make the browns one of a loser of the straight no and here's why what has my notes your 'damas prediction is coming true yeah this just puts the browns one step closer to signing kirca's unless you're going with israel briefly.
"alex smith" Discussed on First Take
"What's it called six here have doesn't or the other you know you got to look at it it's a close call but to me it it is just to wash because clearly the redskins are just saving money more than anything else alex smith to me the game manager he's not a game changer what kirk cousins again cost a lot of money for do they can't even get you to the pacific maybe it's not his fault maybe we need to be looking at j glued maybe they doesn't need to be to goudin's coaching in the national football league in a head coach and we all they can no one's going to sit a up the essay john gruden doesn't deserve to be a head coach job but jake rooted that's a discuss it that's worth having no question about it but if you to washington redskins i'm not franchise tag in a gang kirk cousins paying kirk because it's all that money i could miss the playoff bob handsome body considerably less than i would have had to pay him neither alex smith nor kirk cousins to think is the kind of quarterback who will stop in otherwise great team from winning a super bowl put neither is one that's going to put an otherwise good team over the top and win them a super bowl there are kind of the same guy that way the one thing you mentioned about alec smith with the low turnover stephen a i would actually like to see that number go up a little bit because it would say to me that what is missing from alex smith really middle gunslinger he needs a little more than you usually don't say that about a quarterback usually they have too much but he's missing the number one overall pick he's missing that and he could use a little more of that i think that super low turnover ratio for him at the section total for him his maybe actually just for him not a great sign one more thing about the nfc east now the eagles and the giants both have now two teams in the division were generally the quarterbacks not going to throw the ball more than ten yards like i know smith that it more early last season.
