Philadelphia Eagles trade QB Carson Wentz to Indianapolis Colts for two draft picks
"Story of the day. The Eagles have traded quarterback Carson Wentz to the Indianapolis Colts and oh my goodness. It made me very happy. I was so excited. There's a lot to unpack. I want to start though by mentioning a weird thing first. In the 2016 NFL draft the number and overall pick was Jared Goff. The number two overall pick was Carson Wentz. And both have been traded away from the teams. They were drafted by 19 days apart. Just a weird quick doesn't happen very often the guy a number and overall pick a number 2 overall pick gets traded away. Especially not the quarterback position. Let alone almost in just over two weeks apart from each other. That's crazy. Pretty wild now after the trade the Eagles have a 33.8 Million Dead money. Salary cap charge for the 2021 NFL season what that means I will get into that in a minute. First of all, that's actually by the way the most ever to have dead money cap. I guess charge or penalties by an NFL team. It's so much that I actually thought that might keep the Eagles from trading cars and stuff like that might be so much of a penalty. They're not even getting rid of the guy sounds like they did. I thought it's good for everybody Carson Wentz wanted out they I think we're you know, we'll talk about Jalen hurts in a minute, but I thought it was good to get Carson out of there. It is also kind of weird and interesting I talked about Jared Goff previously very briefly the other the the record for the most amount of dead money against the salary cap was Jared Goff. The Rams amount is 22.2 million dollars off. Beat 19 days later by the Carson Wentz trade what is dead money? You may ask it's basically all the guaranteed money the Eagles still owe Carson Wentz after the trade. So even though Carson is no longer on their team. He still creates a thirty three point eight million dollar cap hit for next year. So over thirty-three million dollars off of the salary cap has taken up for Philadelphia. They cannot use that money for other players. It's weird. It's interesting. It's never that's again the most ever pretty interesting. I was surprised that you know, they still trade off a given that but in the trade the Colts got Carson Wentz so the cold they get their quarterback that the replacement Philip Rivers the replacement for Andrew Luck. I'm happy for the Colts man. They've they've Way to make it work. They lost in Turlock. They had to scramble the Mage Jacoby Brissett work for a year. They made Philip Rivers work for a year. Now. They've got what they believe is their franchise guide Carson Wentz good for them. The Eagles got a 2001 third-round pick for the upcoming NFL draft and a conditional 2022 second-round pick and here's what's really cool. The condition. Is that if Carson Wentz plays 75% off Kohls offensive snaps for next year if it stays healthy place the whole year or you know, it's good enough to be the starter all years and get benched. Then that draft pick goes from a second round pick in 2022 to a first-round picks. Oh, wow. I like about that. People are saying the Eagles got a horrible trade. They got fleeced. It's terrible. Oh my goodness. You gotta realize this is probably the best trade they could possibly find the Eagles traded away Carson Wentz a guy who has an injury history has been injured repeatedly over the years. He's coming off of a horrible season where he was so bad the dude got benched for Jalen hurts a rookie quarterback Club. So the fact that Philadelphia made a trade where they have an opportunity to get a first-round pick that's impressive to me. I think people realize that's the best they were going to get so anybody criticizing Philadelphia you did not realize how I think how little value Carson Wentz really had on the market people like nobody really wants him. I think JJ Watts getting a ton of attention Carson Wentz people are very wary. And I think it's really what's really disappointed me. Is that the Bears didn't get him. What did the Bears did the Bears not want him? I don't understand. Maybe they're trying to John Watson feel like the Bears really lost here. They still got home key who Carson Wentz has problems I think is way better than Mitchell trubisky. So debate that all you want. I don't know how you go. Like. Oh the Bears they got a great quarterback still trubisky. I like it. I think another thing people got realize is that I love the trade for Carson Wentz. He's going to a way better team he gets to play for his former offensive coordinator Frank back in 2017 the best year Carson Wentz ever had in the NFL. He was a before he got hurt. He was an MVP candidate playing under Frank Reich. He's reuniting with that guy that's going to be awesome to got a great relationship and EM the Colts have a great offensive line. They've got to get running game. They've got a great defense Carson Wentz is being put into a great situation. If he does not do well then there's no excuse. You can make he's got great great team around him good support good people. He's getting helped.

"I had no intentions of coming back. People always want to discuss it. I think Andrew's the same way when he left. Um, you know, it wasn't a twist. I didn't see it as well. Hey, I'm leaving for a year to get myself together and see where I am and possibly come back. Hey, loves football. He loved football, and he had a great career and a great team there. And hey, was stepped away from it, so I don't think he'll be back. But it will certainly invite a lot of speculation. Former Colts head coach Tony Dungy was that Aunt Pat McAfee show? Yes, he was on with McAfee earlier. And so they tell me about these rumors and speculations. Something talked about with Ian Dockage last week when he was on our show Hammer about the speculation that Andrew luck there's there's Because it all started with somebody Ask anything was Kevin bowling that asked Jim Mercy about you know, you should Maybe ask Andrew luck if he wants to come back because there's a quarterback situation right now for the Indianapolis Colts. They don't have one. Right. So the story that came out this morning was Some alleged friend whose wife is friends with Andrews looks wife put some screen shots out there of some conversation where Andrew Luck's wife was supposed to be saying, Yeah, Andrew, Mrs playing. He's having a meeting with Jim er say, you know things like that, and it's kind of snowballed from there Interesting. Let's not wait. So it's like a friend of a friend who took Screenshots of somebody who supposedly knows his wife, right. It's like that chicken Ferris Bueller. You know, I guess it's pretty serious. Well, first of all, it's a crappy thing to do, isn't it right? I don't believe it. First of all, But if it is true what a crappy friend to put your private conversations out there for people to say like that. Definitely don't like that. And quite honestly, Andrew Luck is probably changing A poopy diaper right now has no clue that mean he doesn't have social media is a flip phone, for God's sake. Right, right, right. So I think it's all bogus. And everybody that covers the Colts from beat writers to the Star beat writers on the athletic. Anybody in the know all says this is crap and deluxe retired. He ain't coming back Who's like how you told Mach earlier when she was on for mock tails? You said everybody here decision has there Their enemies for Tony Cats. You know, he doesn't like Andre Carson. Rob doesn't like Holcomb. You don't like hogs said. I'm still mad. It luck for retiring. That's my nemesis, Andrew Luck. All of a sudden, I'm sitting there at the at at the last preseason game before a Colts were supposed to have the offensive line. They had all the players lined up. It was supposed to be a Super Bowl out of sitting there at the game, and it's sweet drinking with some friends and all the sudden my buddy shows me a tweet. On it said Andrew Block, is retiring. And the game wasn't even over yet. The you know the preseason game. And now is that like a fake Adam Schefter report with the ass is actually a five, right? Something like that. And you know? Nope. He's retiring and then Five minutes later, Andrew Luck walks out of the stadium. Do records of booze. Still sort that had to be there for all that unfold. I mean, that's something you'll remember for the rest of your life. When the Colts fans turned on Andrew luck because it wasn't like the story just broke. He was physically down there playing grab ass with everybody on the sideline. That was not his plan at all to announces. His retirement. At this point, I'd what's have him back. I take it Would you accept him back with open arms after the way that it went down the first time, whatever, man because I'm not Szolkowy percent. It is. You're free agent. He's a free agent. E mean He's gone right there. Nobody's gonna. I mean, they gave him 25 mil. Is he sticking around is not for 25 million is not I promise you that I don't know if there's a lot of options right there after The quarterback position for the Indianapolis Colts. So that's the rumor. It doesn't sound like it's legit. But for those who see Andrew Luck trending on social media, that's why some screenshots of some text messages right from somebody that knows somebody else that knows his wife. Okay, All right. That makes sense sounds perfectly legit. Turning our attention to Washington. The executive orders keep on rolling in the climate change. Energy orders have got a lot of governors and senators and panic mode because of massive job loss. You're even seeing Democrats in states like Texas and Oklahoma coming out, saying Wait a minute here. Let's let's pump the brakes and all this kind of stuff because You're going to put our states into poverty here is Louisiana Senator John Kennedy. Well, let me say a word about President Biden's executive orders on oil and gas. They are immeasurably foolish. We're gonna gut Louisiana like a fish. One third of my state's GDP is related to all the gas. The state is not alone. His war on coal and gas is going to hurt America. It's gonna destroy our energy independence. Here's President Biden's new energy policy. We're not going to produce their own oil. Instead, we're going to buy oil. From countries that hate us so they'll have more money to buy weapons to try to kill us. It's immeasurably foolish. That is John Kennedy, the center from Louisiana For the first time in the history, the United States were energy independent. We don't have to buy it from anybody in..

"I think it's done. I would love to see luck return, but I don't think it's gonna happen if Andrew Luck announce that he was coming back. Let's say to play for your coats, Rivers done next year. Luck comes back. It's got to be some excitement there, right. I'd be fired up. Yeah, that would be vey announces in the office. He's coming back, man. Yeah, that would be That'd be awesome because he's 31. I'm in. I don't think it ever happens, though. I agree on the only thing he's come back. I think it's one of those guys at once, he says. He's done he has done and we had Oliver luck on what two times when he was running the XFL. And Oliver Luck didn't say this. But when I asked him about Andrew luck, you just got that vibe that this was it. It's done. It's over. You know, Now he's all about being dad. And you know that family has enough money as it is, they don't need the money. And Even though Gronk came back as usually compare Gronk and locked just because of the timing of everything, even though Gran came back For luck. He has never been in the spotlight since retiring drunk. He retired signs of Fox is doing the wrestling all that stuff with the W W ay, he was still in the public spotlight for Andrew Luck. Has anyone ever heard of in the last time I heard of Andrew Luck was when there was that photo that emerge of him at the Colts facility last year. Member that was like a big doll. Why's yet the culture silly? That's going to be a little bit awkward because he's very friendly still, which Jacoby percent in that coaching staff. So I don't think we'll ever see Andrew luck. But for some reason when I saw that does Bryant news today those of the four names I was thinking of guys that I'd love to see you return to the NFL that, like retired and lives 10 to 15 years. Calvin Johnson, Terrel Owens. Shadow, Just Cinco and then Andrew Luck. Look one. I'll never forget that I was getting ready for CBS Sports radio.
Multiple NFL teams removed Tua Tagovailoa from their draft board
"The hatred for to a total of a lower is at an all time high after the past couple of weeks of where do you draft two of his hip his hip his hip his tip is the big concern I wouldn't track to be sliding down draft boards he could go was as high as third or as low as twenty third which trust me that is not happening all the hate culminated tonight in at culminating in the all the hate coming tonight with a report of two was Wunderlich which she took it came back with a score of thirteen and now I can't get over and it's haters because I just have to say haters because of the way things have been going and I'll get into why but it's haters who are just continually jumping up and down on to and how all yeah I don't know if I could read about it if I can draft all right first of all let's deal with the hip he's got a clean bill of health right now okay he's healthy he is healthy could you get it in four years could something happen with his hip yeah put in four years a guy you draft instead of him could be out of the league right there's a risk in every single player you take in the NFL draft there's very few perfect prospects will the last perfect prospects pose it was Andrew luck I think was the last guy that got the highest grade that Kashmir was was Andrew luck and before that I think it was Peyton manning I did with over the last couple of guys to get perfect grades coming out of college there's no such thing as a perfect prospect all right the thing is the thing what people fail to realize with two a is that when you can talk about someone that's had injuries it's tangible it's black and white so it's easy to say well I would worry about him because you know we could wind up having an injured hip in a couple yeah you could you know other guys could wind up getting hurt too but because it's an injury it's something tangible that I don't know the hip could given problems you know it's not tangible the fact that the quarterback might not be able to make his second weakness progression mark Sanchez may not be able to do that and that's going to find a guy out of the league faster than a guy who's good with a hip injury there are so many risks for quarterbacks but we we focus on the physical because that's what we can understand what all the evaluators you see we have a filter they're looking at if they're picking everything apart why is this guy going to be able to travel to the next level because he's able to go through his progressions quickly or he's able to put the football in a place where only his teammate is going to get to it look Joe burrow it made a meal out of that this season only putting the football where his player was going to go get on LSU there's so many things going with there's so many risks for every player there's just as much risk for Justin Herbert because the guy could be a bust all right I want to play some games last year your chase a locker for on with us earlier this week he said there's a couple of games he looked like a high school kid playing quarterback he looks so bad last year everything to what has done on the field physically has shown you he is the tag for to a guy he is the most talented quarterback in the NFL draft and how I know what's haters when it comes to everything now you have the Wonderlic score out here of thirteen thirteen is not the worst for the world there's been guys with scores in the single digits and you know what some of them it has to stop Frank gore I think got a seven on the Wonderlic and he's going to the hall of fame so it's not like you just because you could have low score thirteen I think he took it before I got a nineteen on it when he was at Alabama together thirteen now his score is absolutely fine but all this jumping up and down on to a is all haters and it's all pushing is his value down and it's not fair because what's not being talked about by the same people that are like a draft to again as a present what about all the other things he brings to the table what about all the reasons why you would take of that height with considering what he can do physically what kind of arm he has what kind of accuracy has how strong his arm is how you can get outside the pocket all right his attitude that so far has been the best part of it no one's talking about because he's taking all of this eight and he is not imploded he's not explode is not blamed anybody he he is just trying to let people know I'm healthy right so this is a kid who's healthy could be hurt later on yeah but like I said the the risks for other players are out there too as long as he's healthy now he is the most talented quarterback in the draft there's no reason why I wouldn't take him I I I said months ago I would take him number one overall other people came to the party late on that congratulations it's good for us so I would take him number one I told you as always gets a clean bill of health I take a number one because he's that good the people are forgetting he was that good and if I'm a team in in the draft and I need a quarterback I am happy as hell with this is going on right now because this means the price to move up for him is going to be less and less because the lines are open for business at three and the giants are open for business at four and if teams are going to get scared away and there will be teams scared away of two a because of his health because what whatever reason because now is the time when teams talk themselves into things they don't need to talk themselves into the competition to move up to get him is going to be a lot less so a lot of teams that need quarterbacks you're not hearing from they are happy as hell right now still to this around that yeah yet continue to hate to us so we can go up and get in and get a franchise quarterback and be and be set for the next

NFL Week 7
"Let's get into the Games for Sunday pain we can start at Lucas oil stadium we're we're looking at Indianapolis a modest one point home favourite total in this game forty seven at Fox but of course to Houston Texans have been dynamic of late F one four out of their last five covered the last four have a little bit of playoff revenge on their minds for a game that they were dominated by Andrew Luck in company to the tune of twenty one seven season ago and in a unique scheduling quirk or call it what you will both teams actually enter Sunday's game fresh off a victory against the Kansas City chiefs interesting did not know that why Chins I didn't know I didn't really realize that listen I think when we look at this matchup we look at this game we're starting to see what the Texans offense has the potential to be right with a little help up front we've kind of seen flashes the last few seasons of you know in the lead offense when it's healthy Wendy Shawn Watson has it rolling and he's confident is a passer which you look the last two weeks Houston's had the best pass protection in the Watson air and I think that's pretty important moving forward the ground game has also been on fire something that the Houston Texans could not do last year was run the ball consistently would fizzle out constantly in the red zone and it's because I think they found some consistency upfront finally right you found your five guys as the talent is playing spots I think that suit them best in you're looking through the last two weeks eight pressures fifty six percent of runs of grades so now let's see if that continues because it's it's it's a two-game sample it's a byproduct of probably facing the chiefs and Falcons defenses and I think also the right is Howard injury at right tackle could shake up some of that piece of this that I've kind of been alluding to their other thing in this match up that's kind of caught my attention and it kind of is a a broader point a topic that we've discussed Ad Nauseam ruin knows at this point we liked the coach's coaching staff of the colts were not fond of it for the Houston Texans and I think coaching tends to matter when the opponent is familiar and everybody kind of knows what each other wants to do and it's the coaching staff that comes out and has the power Henschel or ability to make adjustments and make changes and I think the team that does that rise probably the colts and you look last season these guys play each other three times in the I meeting which was the first time Frank Reich saw this team Shawn Watson has seven point one yards per pass in week four that number tumbles to five point three per pass in week fourteen and then you had the quick turnaround Wildcard Game Watson was held a four point two yard pass at home and I think that's interesting it's something that you have to talk about here there's another element play and it's one we've talked about I think we talked about it on the Monday night breakdown of the new CBA about home teams coming off the bye and they generally haven't performed overly well it's you know about forty one percent of the time they're covering think it's positive if you've done some reading this week Frank Reich iterative that this was not a time to vacation that this was rest recover and mentally focused on the bye week there was no vacation time no one was allowed to travel so it would make me nervous in a pick em game choosing bill over Frank Reich and you know it just it that becomes magnified when you have two weeks the game plan
Fantasy intel for all 32 NFL teams ahead of Week 7
"Of information kind of funny because the beginning of the year we were told the Broncos had the most difficult schedule the NFL or second most most behind Texas dipping high look at it now everybody's talking about the schedule being so easy it's funny how on paper something looks in the beginning of the season and you get a way it was easy to find out it's not what you thought you with the Cleveland Browns for instance everybody was in the high pick for the Superbowl now they might not even win their division so you know it's it's it's interesting to watch to stop play out well even in the course of the of the flows of the season I mean as soon as Andrew luck announces retirement a lot of people just immediately said okay the culture gonna be picking in the top five judge go we were set is doing okay in fact the colts might even not necessarily go into the draft picking a high quarterback they might say you know Hey you if you if you could make us a competitive team Jacoby maybe they let you roll with it another year and they'll just bring in a quarterback they'll draft a quarterback to develop behind him I agree and I think it's amazing that you didn't mention Chad Kelly in there once that's because I shouldn't and nobody should here right but they they you know a little help Broncos fans are some people that I know I know I'll floater the one that got away the legend to the got away preseason legend Kyle floater all time grease motor back in a pre season he's putting up some really spectacular preseason numbers Benjamin rushing it yeah but highly loader single handedly ending the dreams of future insurance salesman but but to that point and I and I'm glad you brought that up and we we spoke about this a few times the ANC overall pretty weak conference you have the top in teams right we know those teams it it that doesn't change anything we knew that those teams were gonna probably be good but what happens is there's a lot of middling to bad teams teams actively taking in the A. F. C. N. and then there are teams that are look inconsistent at best and so for for the Broncos that's why you when we were in the midst of the old for when the Broncos were in the midst filled before we were talking about it we said look star string together a few wins yeah you never really know how this is going to shake out and in the midst of the Broncos getting the two wins in a row which they really should have three in a row the chief lose too and they lose too in a way that actually is a replicable likely teams or Detroit Lions basically did it carry that into the colts game the colts they went to Kansas city and they didn't even better and in the Texas look the the Texans model what is John Watson and and the officer told this sort of their shots it wasn't like they they wanted that game saying if we can hold them under twenty no I just did their thing they took chances will fuller drop three touchdowns in that game now three touchdowns in the game on now you know a great week start will fuller your fantasy league yeah I don't know any Benjamin all rights that would have invested heavily in him and done that but I I but yeah yeah that happened well buddy that that's that's what kills is like you know well for the week before hundred seventy yards receiving three touchdowns any of this to find digs going off for three W. like those things happen in that everybody's gonna rush to put it back in their or their line ups and then at the very next week their their disappointment right I'm not appoint chaser by as those good match up and then put in that vein it's not like the tents that that's where I'm I'm like look does the size of the Broncos to do their thing but it doesn't mean that the offense can execute effect I'll go almost a further with you on this bed I think mostly Joe Flacco today I think Joe Flacco once it I think Joe Flacco after kinda have in a a little a little bit of a everything taken off of him like like Hey we got this game Joe don't don't stress too much don't screw up in in the Titans game we got this one the way he's been Kerry himself the way he's been talking about the office I don't have a cut for me but she basically said something to the effect of like we want to be a reason why we win this game but not just part of like along for the ride the office was along for the ride in the Titan's went kinda yeah and I think that Joe Flacco of all people knows what both sides of that coin feel like you know he he was along for the ride with the ravens a lot of the time he also strung together the reason that they got two and won a Superbowl so you've been bullseyes that coin he sees tasted in all the that the tree of of winning in a great offense and now I I I do think that you think is will chip on your shoulder when you come away from the Titans game like well you know we actually kind of stock but the defense held us together you know the run game was next out the past came with very good at it I mean it wouldn't the office of Lee that what a great game by the Broncos are flashes they made some big plays and they need to but they try to put it in kinda cruise control because they knew they didn't have to I mean that the tides getting crossed the fifty yard line in the first three quarters play that I recall they got to the forty nine once had a point all of our four template but I mean you know when you when you bottom up that well get out your office kinda I don't see the check out but you know they recognize are not needed and there can be you can kind of let off the gas a little this was the quote he said there's always that side of it of wanting to go out there and have your claim on the game and all that is like there's always a personal side going out there and playing football games I don't think that always means it's a bad thing it's like I said I think you go out there and focus on what you're doing with the idea that it's for the guy next to you would have to repair the best you can so you're not letting anybody else down but again he kind of point at the very beginning of that he kind of pointed out yeah you know what you play this game you play this game to be remembered you play this game to be a winner and you don't want to be along for the ride of your quarterback like they did there you're less your a career pack up that is being brought in just to keep the seat warm you want to go out there you want to kind of put your stamp on the game just like I didn't get a chance to really do that this last game I think he really wants this one and he's got the defense I think to do that if they can get that run game warmed up early he'll have his spots to be able

I have never been a franchise quarterback quarterback. I always dreamed of being one but never had that opportunity or maybe it wasn't good enough to get that opportunity. The bottom line is that organization committed and invested in him and to do this to a team going into the season. I believe he has an obligation to try to handle the situation in the best way possible civil even if he knows he's gonna retire why create a controversy going into the season when you can easily defer that conversation until after after the season by just saying it's best for this organization. Maybe i might even change my mind because i even admitted in my previous in the press conference. I've only thought about this for about ten days. That's what he said. It was a quote right so give give yourself another couple of months to think about it. Go to europe for a month. Get away. Let that foot healed up a little but maybe maybe you'll come back in a month or month and a half and say i actually wanna play. I wanna try to take this team that i hear what you're saying. Steve i think obligation is a really tough off work. I do think there's a responsibility when you take on except all that money and everything they give you as a franchise quarterback but but obligation you've chosen that word intensely that gives you no wiggle room and you're saying that i think he tried to do the right thing. I didn't say he's got an obligation to stay in going into reserve. He's got an obligation to try to do. What's in the best interest of the organization. At that point i think in andrew luck mine did that in his mind what what he thinks is in the best interest organization may differ from you and jim and frank reich and jacoby perset but he did what he he felt was in his best interest and i think part of he thinks in the team and i always will bring this up byron left which was a franchise quarterback who went to the season ticket holder order luncheon who was demand and then they say august thirty. I get up outta here. David your turn sometime. Well guess what you could go the other way as well. This is not to jesuit. Yes what the boss can always fired period
Andrew Luck's retirement shocks football fans
"And we were shocked by the stunning retirement the age twenty nine Andrew luck the Indianapolis Colts quarterback one estimate I read it a half billion dollars in four gone earnings your reaction might going to made it your top ten but your personal reaction to this young man saying I've got enough I'm not going to risk my health my personal reaction is that this present a massive issue to the NFL how dangerous indeed bill attending the sport can be hold it takes on top talents agenda and I were talking about this last night you reminded me of one of the great Green Bay Packers Brett Farr battled addiction to pain killers the talk about taking fifteen by the bike it in at one time taking a month's worth of pain killers in two days and so I think that the lock during the war you said that the joy had gone out of football the you're stuck in a cycle of the injury rehab injury we have the New York times on football a comma convulsant writing players of locks generation now make a loop whose calculation between help Christmas money and that's going to put them in conflict with team owners who always want more football not what and if you did a little more digging tomorrow you'll see that Andrew luck got crushed his first two seasons with the colts because they had a terrible offensive line to go back to Michael Lewis is great but the blind side and I'm watching Baker Mayfield were on the cover of the brands on the covers SI Odell Beckham junior Jarvis Landry and behind the Baker may feel and Nick Chubb we're gonna have a great year we had a very good offensive line after job attorney I was at left guard and I'm beginning to think that reading that Andrew luck story the brown should start trading draft choices to get in a line to protect their asset which is Baker may feel he's the whole club these everything and the reason Andrew luck is quitting with half the career of Roethlisberger and and one two fifths of the career of Tom Brady is because you don't have an old line it be it Michael Lewis is frightening still right this is a brown story is proof that all politics is local the the the ill the triumph of hope over experience has led me to have season I have my four on the fifteen people want them and I'm so excited about Mike Allen always a pleasure good Monday

I. B. C. let me bring in Kevin balance from one oh seven five the band ninety three point five one seven five the family sometime the fan dot com literally every article on that site right now is you you and Kevin's corner and talking about the retirement of Andrew luck so here's here's the the the question what the hell yeah right shock stunning disbelief answer all those adjectives right there basically Angela came to the realization that the sacrifices it takes to be an NFL football player and the amount of pain threshold that you have to play through the amount of rehab that a lot of guys have to go through to play at that level he was no longer willing to make those sacrifices and I think the Andrew luck we saw maybe the first for five years and his NFL career war was very willing to do all of that but ever since the labor issue began four years ago and he wants the Netherlands for two months for that twenty seventeen season to try and get away and nearly new husband and new father later this year all those things wait into this pretty heavily now there's no doubt and I am I'm from the beginning I was saying this to the people that I was around he looked in his life he looked at the money in the bank he felt the pain that these and you look at the future of his family said I don't need this right and and I don't actually have a problem with that I'm not one of those people who's who's angry with him for retiring certainly I think that he's wrong to say mentally worn down you don't get to discuss mentally worn down there's a guy who's been going to the plant for twenty five years and he's mentally worn down and physically worn down but is a hundred million dollars in the bank you don't actually get to say that to people as as far as I'm concerned and he has two X. I think except that when people were brewing as they were coming up the field it's not just all it was about that but it was also about him leaving it's also about this team that's what I want to get into with you this seems like the second time in three years that the Indianapolis Colts lied to the fans about what was going on it was a calf strain it was a magical thing it was bone thing now it's retirement how or GM Ballard Chris Ballard and the coach Frank Reich discussing this and are they aware of the fact that for the failing side never will get to the team a second for the fans side there is all lot of mistrust of
Andrew Luck's Retirement Highlights the NFL's Growing Problem
"Know what it wasn't long ago. I think it was last week when two weeks ago when mclovin said hey how about this poll question is andrew lock more likely to be an slight disappointment or hall of famer and this is when the ankle injury came. I remember it was the calf and then the owner robert say said i think it's an ankle and then i started to think there's more involved in this. There's more to this story. Sorry ben just glynn from the calf to a high ankle. I don't even i still don't know what he has but we know it serious enough that he announced his retirement and everybody's got an opinion on this. His decision to retire was a shock to the system for you know the the entire n._f._l. Nation when people say boy oy this is the most shocking football story we've ever heard i mean like new. No no no no how about we start with o._j. Simpson michael vick aaron hernandez. Those are shocking stories. Andrew looks different cat all right he is. He went back to college to get his degree. He could have left after his junior year. He went back to get his degree in architectural design. I believe he there are guys who are or football players and then there guys who play football most our football players j._j. Watt is a football player. Should he still be playing football. No no not at all but it andrew luck is a guy who is a guy who was good at playing football. I don't know if he's a a football guy and there's a difference in that but that doesn't mean he wasn't good at it or didn't love it. I just think that we're we're so unfamiliar. Oh you're with an athlete who uses logic where you go. What are you doing. Most football players in pauley had the analogy. Let's say you have a rock rock in your shoe. Most football players will continue to play in fact. Stop down on the rock. Where is andrew luck goes. How about. I just take the rock in my shoe. I mean it sounds logical. He just took the rock out of a shoe. Football players will tie the shoe differently like they'll somehow find a way. Hey i'll walk differently who care i'll take madison. Shoot me up. Whatever andrew lucked just said. I'm gonna take the the pebble <music> out. He's removing football from his life. Everybody has an opinion on this and when he started rattle off the list of injuries it makes a lot of sense but it's hard for us to imagine and by the way athletes are just commodities. We've moved on from all of these athletes. We don't care really don't care eric. Dickerson joined us in los angeles when we were out there and here's one of the great running backs of all time any looked great. I said the kind you look like you could give me a couple of carries. He said people don't realize the toll that this takes on goes. I slept in a reclining chair for two years because i had neck and back injuries. Nobody cares about eric dickerson's injuries. Nobody cared about jim. Mcmahon's injury his health. He thought about killing himself. We move on and andrew luck realizes that and yes he got paid paid and the reason for people to be upset and how do you do this to your team. And how do you quit on your team. I understand those emotions. I really do but i have to look at this and say andrew. Luck did what andrew luck thought he needed to do. Is it inexcusable to you know oh colts fans. Yeah i get that. I don't think he's saying boy. Watch what i'm gonna do. I'm going to set up the colts for failure now. I don't think i think that he had to process this. It took a long time. It's something you do you do well. It's your identity and maybe he doesn't want that is his identity and can you get away from this. You know the guys who had all the surgeries. I'm seeing all of this stuff here. Everybody's saying how do you do. I understand all of those emotions. Russians here but andrew lock did what andrew lucked thought he needed to do. If barry sanders was a quarterback and he walked away we would have abba bigger issue with what barry sanders did at age thirty-one calvin johnson at aged thirty. Jim brown age thirty. What are you doing walking away from the sport. Guess you've got a contract extension. There are a lot of questions. I have ranted you luck in this situation. When did you really know and when did you let the cold snow and what is the reason. Is there more surgery down. The road like you went through shoulder. You had and i put some of this on the colts by the way ryan grigson in particular the former g._m. What did i say for years. You have this investment. It's like having this unbelievable engine but then you have a car that's falling apart. You traded for trent richardson. You didn't use any lyman you finally went out and got quinton nelson and what happened. Andrew luck had the best season of his career. He had the fewest sacks. It's not something that takes a whole lot of thought. Hey how about we have a good offensive line. Chances are andrew. Luck might be able to play play a little bit longer but so many injuries and then you start to get down on yourself and you get in your head and you don't wanna go through it and and i look i couldn't play the game. I've told you if you ever watched a game on the sidelines. You never let your kids play. It is violent. It's more violent than you think because when you hear it you can close your eyes on the sidelines just listen. There's no way you go yep. I want to play play. I know we're macho. I know we all wanna play through pain. I did stupid things with my knee and my shoulder waited thirty five the years to get my torn rotator and i'm not even a pro athlete. I have an artificial knee because i was stupid when i played this guys out there and they're taking shots at him. He's getting hit lacerated kidney. He's got shoulder. He's got yeah. I understand all of these injuries. Do we want him out there. Yes because it's about us he. What are you doing to my fantasy team. Hey what you doing to my colds. You're you guys got a chance to. I understand hold loose things but this is something that we don't understand an athlete who says i'm gonna take a logical approach. He's a guy he's got a flip phone. He's got a book club. I mean he he's not your normal guy. Hi and we can't understand this. He's newly married. We can't understand this because all of us would go. I killed a play and make that kind of money and be a starting starting quite yes. This story is about us in how we perceive. This people didn't play wanna tell you they would play or how oh you need to play or. What's wrong with your your soft. You gotta take a step back and andrew luck. Doing i see all of this twitter chatter. Oh this is going to stay with him forever. I is very sanders. A quitter calvin johnson a quitter. Is jim brown a quitter right i. I haven't heard that i'd never heard somebody say. Jim brown's a quitter. Barry sanders quit walked down on the <hes> the lines how can you do. I guess andrew luck is a quitter but i'm guessing will move past this calvin johnson. Is he a quitter or see smart. I don't know i just i saw this reaction this vitriol that andrew luck how dare you do for this. He walked away from his team. I get i get it. He gave up on a sport. He excels at but no matter what people say. I think we can all agree. Andrew luck was outstanding when he did play and wishing luck and no pun intended with his life after football.

Andrew Luck retires: Colts' personnel moves forward with Jacoby Brissett
"The Indianapolis Colts in thirteen days face the LA Chargers went out Andrew luck and with your cover percept the guy for whom they traded Labor Day weekend at twenty seventeen he started fifteen games that year after being thrust into the mix with no opportunity to learn the offense no opportunity to learn the personnel no opportunity to learn the coaches everything's on the fly for Jacoby per set it was for an eleven which obviously is not an ideal record but he played well under the circumstances and remember twenty seventeen GM Chris Ballard was still trying to dig out from the mess that Ryan Grigson had made from two thousand twelve for two thousand sixteen in Indianapolis so I think there's reason for optimism as they move forward with your cover per set they have resisted all options and opportunities to trade burset elsewhere and now they have him and now he's the guy now Chris Ballard the guy who has compiled this culture Austin made the playoffs last year made the final weight has to cover percent he understands that the office will be different without interlocutors Ballard from Saturday night we're not gonna ask you go we were said to be Angela Angela was a unique unique player but you go we were set is is a winning football player initially and he is an apple I think your would you what Andrew said Cody said is a rare rare leaders he is he's a rare human being man I know look in that moment Chris Ballard needs to say something to inspire confidence in the locker room and beyond that the colts will rebound from this but look at what they rebounded from just in the past couple of years Josh McDaniels fails on a verbal agreement to take over as coach of the team following fifth Super Bowl fifty two bad stunner on a Tuesday night and we had a hard the rumblings that you know what McDaniels may not take that job after all and they didn't and they were covered and they pivoted to Frankreich and Frank Reich has ended up being the guy who maybe should have been at the top of the list from the get go and right there was a thing or two about moving on from disappointment about changing circumstances and adjusting on the fly right was the quarterback of that game in buffalo the comeback for the ages when the Orleans wrote thirty five to three it wasn't Jim Kelly he was injured it was Frank right it was Frank Reich who was the offense of coordinator the Philadelphia Eagles in two thousand seventeen when Carson Wentz suffered a torn ACL in the middle of December the kind of injury that would derail a team's playoff run they pivoted to Nick Foles the cobble together an offense that would work in light of his skills and they won the freaking Super Bowl with Nick Foles that was the final active Frank breaks career in Philadelphia's offense of coordinator he's not going to panic he's not gonna give in he's not going to give up it was three years ago that teddy Bridgewater suffered a torn ACL at a no contact practice it's always no contact quarterbacks just a week or so before the start of the regular season and Mike Zimmer said nobody's gonna shut down the season nobody's gonna cry force we just have to go forward it was not long ago we heard Frankreich explaining that he learned from watching Tony Dungy how to stay even keel in that setting how to be the call in the middle of the storm and the importance of that message sends to the rest of people the organization now since how possible Frank break knew what was coming so already was working himself into that state of call so he could be the beacon of hope and stability for the franchise because he knows that they're going to go into the season without interlock but regardless between Ballard who has put together a top flight roster couple of all pros not just pro bowlers but all pros that were rookies last year and continuing to build continuing to finesse continuing to make that team better and yes it makes that team worse not having interlock but there's a quiet confidence between Ballard and right and also what we've seen from the cover set I'm not gonna write the colts off at look people will write them off they will have no expectations the fall off the radar screen and and and now well one hand the division to the Jaguars with the Jaguars in the Texans act the colts I think we'll still be

What just happened? Making sense of Andrew Luck's shocking decision
"You know what how is indeed going to remember Andrew luck's legacy in in his career what what is his era and his legacy going to mean to those colts fans one we now look back in hindsight well so great girl he had said he told us Jason that he actually believes that when we look at Andrew luck we're going to think about the things that he did not do he's going to be remembered for the things that he did not do versus the things that he did and that might sound harsh it might sound unfair at the moment but when you think about that it kind of makes all the sense in the world doesn't well I I do think it's Marcia and I do think it's unfair that if we step back for a second engine log your armored when he was come out of Stanford I had scouts in player personnel people telling me he was the group he was the best quarterback quarterback prospect since John Elway I mean I had several people independently say that to me at any comes in succeeding Peyton manning arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history mean we can go over Brady debate would go around around but if you take manning is right there and what does he do he picks up and gets his team into the playoffs he has great seasons pro bowls he gets hurt his body his body lets him down and I would certainly phrases but England out his body was in the NFL okay and you got hurt and he still after missing season came back I played with a lacerated kidney the playoff game and we're gonna remember for what he didn't do I get it Nick that's the waste that's we sports works in this country it's all about winning championships if you don't and if you walk away your brand the bomb but I don't look at him that way I look at a guy who you know what he made good on his promise but his body did not allow him to continue making good on it but I will look at the guys a failure at all I don't think that there's a difference to say that will remember him more for the things that he didn't do verses what he did then saying he's going to be bomb or a boss or a failure I think it's just looking back at his career and saying what could have been right because he is so so talented he has all the tools it's just looking back and saying them you know what if things fell into place what if he was able to stay healthy what if if he played until he was thirty five thirty six here is Greg Doyle's answer from the NBA star the J. since questions about how long would be remembered you're not gonna be remembered for what he did he can remember for what he didn't do what he left on dark even called quick message what's going to happen and it's a damn shame because he's he deserves better that I realized what he did I realize we did the scene I realize all that but this is not a sports story it's a human story this is a human

The story for Andrew luck was the return the arm, but the bigger thing was the offensive line. Andrew lock throughout his career. It he missed an entire season because of because of the the two hundred and eighty five days off to wait for them to figure the office of lying because the colts refused to address their offense of line in years past it led to his every a a near complete waste of Andrew lock's career. But they got things figured out including Ryan Kelly the center he had the the colts the colts who were among the league's worsed for years in sacra Senate. They had the lowest sack rate in the league down to two point seven. I mean, what what they did in. Indianapolis was nothing short of outstanding to turn that offense of lying around. I agree. I agree. And all you got to. If you're newer to fantasy you have to pay attention to offense of line offencive line can control the destiny of so many fantasy players if without question what happened. Ruling last what happened to girly coming back to life after the Andrew Whitworth signing and that improved oftens of line in Los Angeles.

"andrew luck" Discussed on The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz
"That's a bummer. So the competitions that I saw was it was like a skills. Catching thing was a QB and receiver combo, and I was just pulling pulling for Andrew luck. I always pull for him. I love him so much. I only caught the end, and I saw dodgeball an anti dodge. All I saw was Andrew luck is the the worst dodgeball player ever. You know, like the strategy is you get a ball. And you kinda hang back and you wait for your spot. He must have thrown like, four balls in ten seconds. He was just at the line like throwing but pick up another one throwing his first of all the colts have to be like like why is he out there? Just chucking balls when he's had so much arm surgery as good point. But and then on his third one. He's just like a machine just throwing balls in Heathrow in right at Adam stealing, and he just caught it and then Andrew luggage. Like, oh, gosh darn it. And you had to like go to the side of feeling by the way is like sneaky good at passing. So they have this passer precision contests and Adam feeling was one of the people. So the first two competitors are non quarterbacks and Adam feeling was throwing for the NFC. Right. And he he hit a five point shot. He had a four point. He got like ten or twelve points or something like that. Andrew luck ended up with five which is really concerning that atom feeling was like more precise and Andrew luck. So what was the finals like last year? It was very traumatic because Jarvis Landry and Graham Gano. It all comes down to all the contests before one point and died votes. Three point almost seems it set up. FC one who is who thinks. Well, can you man I wanted to? I wanted you to paint a picture for me. Like, what was dodgeball like what did it boil down to because last year? It was incredible with Gano versus Landry. Letting it Bill was it this year. This the first game I'm trying to think whether they they split the first two games. And and both of those first two games were like it ended up with five against one. And so then I forget whether the NFC one the first one AFC won the first one, but it was like very uneven games to start the first two. So they got to the third game. And then the NFC one pretty easily. You guys see how the NBA all star. Roles change without us noticing. Yeah. I don't like it. I don't like this. I thought it was going to be an all-star if it was just it's not just fan voting. Oh, yeah. No. I saw that. It's like fifty percent fan voting. And then the other fifty percent is players players and coaches split five. Dwayne Wade would have been a starter under a previous format because he got number two most fan votes at the guard position Kemba Walker, obviously more deserving of an all-star so Kemba Walker who finished third got all the respect from the players, and coaches and that booed him on this sort of algorithm that they decided and it his weighted score was higher than twain Wade score. And we got Wayne Wade starting in that exhibition game ripped away from us a games in Charlotte. Right. Yeah. No. That is deserved. And he scored twenty five points again when he does deserve it. But Wade I mean, he needs to get like he can still I heard zaslov on the way in report that that way it's not going to be an all star game because he's definitely not going to be a starter. But it's he could still get chosen. From the coaches zaslov has sources says that's not going to happen. I'd like to see that happen. Why would he get chosen? He's not deserving mental on game. This is serious. This isn't like I got to pick the best twelve guys like Dwayne wait future hall of Famer. I if your first.

"On some surprising news at Carolina yesterday. It seems Cam Newton shoulder injury is worse than originally suspected came was hampered by most of the year Panthers owner, David Tepper said the team might take drastic steps for his long-term future. Temple isn't ruling out Newton missing the entire season. Saying we've got to make sure we have our options open in always possible. Just in case lot of different interpretations here. But Nick, what is your reaction to this? I don't want to react. I don't think Dave Tipper was saying they expect Cam to miss the season. And I don't think anyone should expect him to miss the season. He was kind of speaking hypothetically. And then right after he opened the door to Cam missing the season. He tried to close it a little bit like, well, we're not saying that's going to happen. But the reality is Cam Newton had shoulder surgery last year. He then injured his shoulder in week six this year. And then got it really injured on that TJ. Watt hit and was never the same. After that, they need to learn from the mistakes made in the Andrew luck recovery, and whatever the most cautious processes, whatever the steps need to be not skipping steps not rushing back. And if that means Cam isn't ready for training camp. Then cams ready for training camp. Like Cam Newton. We know that he has the ability to be one of the very best quarterbacks in this league. We also know that as we saw last year that if his play falls off the team falls apart. And that's what happened last season. That is one hundred percent what happened last season. And so we Cam took a lot of criticism late in the year. But we now know he was in with significant shoulder injury. I don't think they have a contingency plan. Like if Cam is to miss.

"To the doctors, did my due-diligence other names. That it wasn't the best idea to play with the risks involved too. So. You know, I felt I wanted to be out there. No doubt. But but the risks involved in the way, it was ultimately entering me. Was was not worth it at. What point did the eagles say, okay? We need to have a better insurance policy or need to keep the one that we've got now, I know Nick foles can get out of this contract and start somewhere else. But this is the second consecutive year that they've had to turn to their backup. The most critical point guys get tornados CL's. It happens all the time. Now, the back injury just saying when does it become a pattern and not just a couple of freak random isolated injuries after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS, sports radio my opinion, is that Nicole should be able to choose and he wants to stay in Philadelphia. They should pay him every dime of that twenty million dollars because they're not Super Bowl champs without him. And they're not in the playoffs this year without him. If he decides he wants to stay he should stay. Now. He does sound like he wants to go start somewhere else. But if he decides he'd rather be Philly, they'd better not try to tweak his contract and say, oh, let's renegotiate. Now. There's twenty million there you pay him that twenty million not to. Mention Carson Wentz is coming cheap right now. If he's even on the field at all. But regardless she got him in his rookie deal after hours on CBS sports radio. Andrew luck is back. We'll probably see him again at the NFL honors to pick up that comeback player of the year award. And certainly as he was doing his exit interview as much as this stinks for captain, Andrew luck. And the Indianapolis Colts Frank Reich in his first season. There is a lot of optimism moving forward. Like, I said throughout this season perspectives a little different. This is a special offer. There's no shame for many of these guys. We left our hearts on on the field every game, certainly. I know we all wish we would have played better yesterday. We all wish the outcome would have been different. We're sad about that. And we're we're our disappointed. We wanted this somewhat magical ride to continue. Andrew luck. It definitely gave us this this magical ride coming back to the NFL's better with with luck playing as well as he did second in touchdowns only to one Pat the homes, he had thirty nine home. Fifty of course. And he was in the. The top ten. I don't wanna go top five in. Let's go back and look at the numbers but forty six hundred yards passing. And of course, the colts were ten and six they played their way into the postseason as a wildcard in the AFC south. And then knocked off the south division champs in Texas in the first round of the postseason. There's a lot to like about this colts team. I don't know whether or not there'll be a popular pick moving forward and in two thousand nineteen but I do know the expectations are a heck of a lot higher than they were a year ago. Why was that number that Frank Reich held up in the locker room after they made the postseason thirty two because there was some power rankings out there that had them in dead laugh at number thirty two. Yeah. That's not going to happen again and asked for Andrew luck think the the fact that there's a great offensive line in front of him. He and t y Hilton have a phenomenal connection. They've got this run game. It's been so good Marlin MAC really emerged in the later part of the season. The defense outplayed the expectations. All of that makes for some excitement moving forward. As the days. Go by understanding how special times of this. Yes. This season were also to motivate us to get better. We've got a great group of guys in the locker room. I think we've got great leadership. That side of the building. And certainly that makes me excited to be a coal. Andrew luck Carson Wentz, Nick foles, which one of these is not like the other. We're going to have some QB musical chairs in the off season. And I've already seen your tweets about. Hey, send Nick foles the giants. Hey, send Nick foles to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Which makes no sense whatsoever. But I know there are a lot of teams that will be lining up for services. It's just a matter of. In terms of free agency. I think it matters more to Nick the connection he can have with a coach feeling like the locker room is somewhat similar to the eagles though. They certainly did capture the perfect chemistry and a bottle the way they overcame adversity last couple of years, they had wonderful leadership, and that's hard to find everywhere. But he can be selective. Certainly. And so we'll see what happens. I'm a big fan. Now the way that Nick foles has played. But also the way that Nick foles has carried himself the last couple of years, I'm rooting for him. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. And I can't even look at it anymore. Now. I feel terrible. I feel bad for even joking about the eyes of Adam gates that should be a hashtag the eyes of Adam gates. They're watching you the videos, so I went out in the newsroom to record my CBS sports minute. And one of our fellow broadcasters out in the newsroom said have you seen the videos of Adam gates? No, no, I hadn't. I don't. We seem to still photos and a picture while it may be worth a thousand words, they can also lie to you a picture can lie you can capture some warning eight eight a bad moment or just did a random moment where it looks. As though they are someone that they are not or you know, the angles can be really bad and unflattering sometimes, but the videos are worse. And now, I feel terrible something's wrong. Something's terribly wrong. What is happening? Why didn't anyone asked me if he's okay? I wear contacts. And sometimes I have used the contacts, and I'll keep them in for longer than they're supposed to be in my eyes. And there are times when my eyes are extremely dry or or I mean, a lot of pain, and I'm constantly like fiddling with them. Maybe he was with his contacts that anybody asked him if he need some eyedrops anybody can we be nice to Adam gays, please. Because now I feel terrible. And you have not seen the videos. I cannot Ri tweet them. I don't ask me to but producer, Chris. He's heartless because he's a jets fan, and he didn't want Adam gave here admitted Chris just admit, you think this is funny. It's hysterical. He's your head coach now. For now. Let's say that you don't really wish a man will get fired. Do you know, but he might be abducted before he gets fired. Buying who the alliens that made his eyes. This video. He's one of them. They want their guy home again. It's like the with Cal l when when they came back to find him and take him home. Okay. That's I'm not great with my the droid. We were looking for. No, come on videos are just they're disconcerting. What is happening to him? Okay. I can't read tweet them. But Chris did on our show Twitter after hours CBS. Let's squeeze in one quick call here Trent is in Dallas trying to get about sixty seconds, go. Good morning. How you doing great? I wanted to get your opinion on what's what do you think is more impressive. Lebron James Lee. His teams eighth straight finals Tom Brady, h straight titles. As much as eight straight NBA finals is extremely impressive. The fact is they haven't won eight straight night of the patriots haven't either. But if you're asking me in terms of. Just just those two categories. That's all I can look at that. I think it's gotta be Tom Brady. And let's keep in mind that brings older too at this point like LeBron James will soon find out aid should have caught up with him. And yet he continues to be dedicated to his craft. I also think now LeBron James really impressive last year. And then he played every single game the way that Brady's had to adjust his game four age and for the the rotating door of teammates are all volving door. Teammates almost Brady for now. So yeah, that's I dunno. It's they're both really impressive though. Yeah. I I agree. I thought it was Brady. For a while. I went back to the Brian just because sometimes Brady only has to win one game that get there. But at the way, how'd you get that in the playoff? Oh in the playoffs. Yeah. But they don't get them. If they don't get the buys there are completely different team. So keeping in mind, of course, that they've had to come up with these buys for so long as well. So we'll see now they have to go on the road and be able to win this one in Kansas City. Thank you so much for that call from Dallas. I don't even know if I made any sense whatsoever. Because I was too worried about.

"And I bet it with my heart instead of my head. I bet it with my heart because I wanted Tom Brady. Game and home. So I wanted Andrew luck and company 'cause eat seemed to have a lot of company is they came into that game. I wanted them to go in there and upset the chiefs and then have to go to Foxborough. We're Tom Brady obviously would get back to yet another super has nine Super Bowl. Now, it's going to be different. And it's going to be hard. But what did I see you were being very nice to Andrew luck? I thought he was mostly pathetic in this game. He had a QBR of nineteen point seven scale of zero to one hundred which is just pathetic. And I asked the question is his shoulder still bothering him. Because all I saw was a lot of push passes and very slow on the draw very deliberate. Like, I'm going to push the ball over here to this guy. And it seemed like every other pass tipped or batted at the line of scrimmage with give it would like twenty degrees. Well, maybe cold for the No. know I how. don't teams do when they go outside. He grew up in Houston torch the Texans in Houston in dome Dave play in a dome, but it looked to me like once you take away his run game, which was taken away. No, Marlin MAC to speak of to your point. And once you're hot defense looks cold in Kansas City against that kid and all those weapons then all of a sudden Andrew lucked got exposed in this game. And again somebody I know somebody very near to me right now had the audacity to suggest that Andrew lucked belonged on the Pro Bowl. Team ahead of Tom Brady is that's just laughable base it on playoff. I it's just this guy. Well, that's the case fee. Jonathan should be in the Pro Bowl. For the promo performances. He should be actually you. But you you ought to be ashamed for even suggesting that Andrew luck. It's Bert in that does down. Fifteen picks is just completely misleading. It was a Mirage, and it it just blew up in the one in five and for them to go one in five and make it to the playoffs and win playoff game. I don't think it was his doing he tributed. But I think it was Marlin MAC being the hottest back. All four games the last five or six games. Go look at what he did. But while he was season. Andrew luck had as great game of three touchdowns. A what happened Saturday may my fault? I just picked the wrong the bigger the game the worst supplies..

"Had it just faded out because I pay attention to the got it for second show. That's all right. Okay. I want to make sure that we said this. We're in. I don't even know if we were the baseball talk and right in the middle of baseball. We're going nuts. Klay was just like Klay hit three threes right in Rhode start the game. And you're going is this going to be one of those moments? And then I mean, he only has that's his last three took nine points. It's always, okay. But I mean, just keep feeding them the rock. I'm with you get that could be one of those nights where you get the accolades this could be the night where they get one fifty before the fourth quarter just saying I've been waiting for this for years. It took it took two overtimes for the Spurs together last night, which way we missed. I remember sorry. Go ahead. All right going there. No, no division around this. All right unto matchups going on. There's some interesting news happened in the NFL, but we're going to get to that in a couple of minutes. But what's the most intriguing match-up? You think this weekend? What's the one? You're looking forward to the most. I'm just curious because. The game. I'm going to be honest with you, drew. There is not one of them looking at them going at don't really care for. Okay. I am. I would never I'm not. I think that this weekend usually is the best weekend. I never thought that I was in talks about that. Why was thought wildcard weekends the best weekend? I love walk- Hartwig the vision around is out stage. There's no around. I'm just telling you right now. It's great every matchup is there's something behind it. There's something truly behind it. Where you go either team could win, and that's what I want to investigate as we talk about. This round is is all the storylines attached to every game this weekend because I do find it fascinating. Obviously, very intriguing match-ups kick off the entire weekend. Which is the game. I'm looking forward to Saturday morning or afternoon is the color chiefs. Casey. I don't know if you wanna play the colts right now the way that they handled that front from Houston defense on Kansas City's shady at times. But it is Pat Mahomes, I understand that. But the Pat Mahomes Andrew lucked quarterback match up. I think is one of the most intriguing story lines of the weekend. Maybe not the most intriguing storyline. But one of them for sure would you got Andrew lock in the comeback of Andrew luck. He absolutely could carve out a very unique legacy in this postseason run that the colts are and then obviously Pat Mahomes who took the entire NFL by storm in the postseason for the first time. I mean, we'll Andrew luck ruin Andy Reid in the postseason once again, we will be a sad story. I mean, there's so many storylines to go on. But that is the one game. I'm really more than anything looking forward to colts and cheese. What's going on right now? They're snow showers. Love it. Ninety percent all the way until five AM seven AM, eight AM. Is the k nine AM AC mo- weather Rowley hell when you get to game time sixty percent chance of snow thirty two degrees. I look we've seen in the past. They've got the coils underneath the field. So in Kansas City. So you're going to have that heated field. So it's not going to be. All built-up snow. But that's going to be an issue. And I want to know how Patrick Mahomes are gonna play in that. I do I get it. He's played in Kansas City for a year for one year. I wonder and you're luxury. Andrew luck plays inside. There's uncertainty. It gets it going. Either one of those is that is that what is going to be the factor. Does the offensive line for Indianapolis? Hold up. Put them up against anyone Gwen Nelson's bad s. I just like if if my game plan it'd be like look at Nelson's in there. We're just gonna run right behind him. He's to block everything he's just like the snow remover. Yeah. Billy Bob says following laid in varsity blues that's him. Was that before after concussion started bleeding from the ear? That was was there was before before. Yeah. Billy Bob had my I have my cat scanned. Wasn't there? A varsity blues TV show that came out there TV show that happened. Just straight a movie am I mistaken? Maybe I'm thinking, maybe I'm thinking of Friday night, that's more or less. You've been on. That though is that a good show. Is it worth watching? First couple of seasons. Yeah. Yeah. Started slow down a little bit. Yeah. A lot less football than early. That's what you want you want more football. Yeah. Okay. Fair enough. Oh, I can take that from half court. What? That was bomb when he banked in one from how I not Steph warriors are forty eight hundred four three seven. Just not even worth your time. I mean would still the most amazing thing if you think about it. If you go sorry to the fans that are listening that wanna listen to MBA or to the NFL. The warriors and just their half court shots. Whatever at the end of quarters, Pfaff's, whatever. I'm gonna say majority are pretty damn close in. I can't say that about anyone else. I wanna like Steph is. Steph is around the basket more than anything. I just feel like that's a part of the drill at practice. Oh it. Absolutely. Very very. Hey. All right here, we go this in the half court shot. He's gonna pull up from half court one. Oh, yes. Already already, sir. Or is it okay? See at home February two years ago. Have you remember this? 'cause I was at. I was at ten lease godmother's birthday. So you're so so. And shannon. Just watching the game. Yeah. Well, no. Who is that a bar? We were watching it. And it was like, I think it was. Okay. See he went off. It was unbelievable. I mean, like pulled up from half court was sorry. A step inside half court. Not half court Koch can't believe I said that what a check. Try to drain that shot. I know you can hit that that half court shot. Three good, of course shot. I'm sure you were. Yeah. That's something. I think. My dad basketball coach my whole entire life. So I was the halftime show. Right. I mean, I played it either. I played against my brother, or if he was too cool for school, which happened often. So you ran out there and halftime did you actually do a halftime show? I'm telling you like both of us would run around the court. And do the pregame drill for like, thirty seconds. We'll screaming and hollering. Absolutely. I was like six, Freddie. And then it was just check away. I mean, he would try to he would try to beat me down. He did that often. Sure. But yeah, then it then it went from game to okay, let's just go half court shots and here the place. Go nuts. You're right though. There is a different feel to it. It is looks different absolute. That's right. That's why I think they work on it a little bit behalf to anyway. Day kick everyone's asked that they could do that. It's it's the tendon thirty one bowls. This doesn't surprise me. At all we call this an hour ago. We'll get back into the NFL. Obviously we're talking a little bit about the colts in the chiefs in that matchup. This weekend. Well, you know, they're interesting when they play team like this. They play team. It's it's interesting to see how many accolades they can gain. We're talking about three point shots not talking about strategy game on ten and thirty one bull's team. But these are those moments I do think that Steve Kerr more than anything. Wants them to have the best habits like the best Technic. These are the games in the past have gotten away from because not in not gotten away from in losses. But they get sloppy. They start trying to do turnovers games like turnovers in the game. Like this. Right. We'll keep you up data. What's going on in the bulls at oracle? We'll get back into the NFL coming up next some news that happened with a couple of coaches, and then we're going to.

"I'm not so sure about this with Texas had plenty of chances to make plays that would have had to winning this game. The difference came down to the fact that the Colt had a better quarterback than the Texas do and the colts have a quarterback who played much better than the Texas Coon back. Yeah. And I would say that the colts we have spent a lot of time wondering did they adequately protect Andrew luck his shoulder and therefore his career and this was the game where they proved to everybody. No. We got him. We got this Morlin max at the record. Bo playoff rushing yards by a tailback for the colts. They have an offensive line led by my brother Winton, Nelson who was pancake people today. Uncloudy JJ watt. No, they have him under control. And it's rolling right now, ten of eleven is up in the hottest human leads still. He's not your brother Pablo by like, you get to claim all of the Asians. You don't get to claim white dudes named Quinton. But is not your brother if he's anybody's brother. He would be mine in spite of your attempt to see if he was Asian because you thought his eyes may have been a giveaway. They are something of a giveaway, but I did find video of him taking taekwondo lessons. So. Oh, yeah. Reality Clair's welfare to this world, by the way, you become less white because you took taekwondo lessons. Okay. Colts, though, this is a much more talented outfit than we had seen them having. Absolutely. This is impressive. What they've managed to put together because. Yeah, they kind of bird years of Andrew luck's career it might not look like because they kept going to the playoffs. But they never had a team that looked like it had a legitimate chance to make any noise. This one looks like a team that could make some noise. They look like they could in fact beat the chiefs this next round. I'm not betting on it. But they could I am leaning that way because they've given up the fewest sacks in the league in this eleven gave run they have the number one scoring defense. But after this game vote, we have a toast from jimmer say to wash. No me. I'm a perfectionist guys. I know you guys you got Moore in the tank, okay? Like thirty one points, baby. Maybe. I will leave it at that. I'm sorry. I don't wanna watch mood on screws. I love. Say. Vows a player jimmer say it would be a cool owner to have like they like you fuss at she totally. But I will also say that if Jim Irsay was a player he'd probably be placed in some sort of protocol after that speech. There was something. I mean watched the the faces in the background, right? Frank reich. Look into players looking a little bit of comfortable with our with our data to wet air odors. A bit of a weirdo. Right. Like, this is what it is. You just hope made his cameras over there. I hope he didn't say anything crazy. Start saying Beatles song, and nobody knows worse to in there, even Frank right?

"But to he's not taking the risks with his body that used to take holding onto the football moving in and out of the pocket. Trying to do something with it. And then at the last minute taking that big kid of that big sack. So I think the fact that he had this injury. And because of the time that he said out, and the fact that Frank Reich has got a perfect offense Dowd up for Andrew luck strength that he's being more efficient. He's being a smarter quarterback. And he's now taking those risks that he used to take with his body early on. In this career at the fact in that now, they have a Marla MAC running game that's really taken onus since the middle of the season. And the fact that you have a defense that flies swarms to the football. And that they hold each other accountable. You can see that there is not the lack of discipline and communication when you're looking at the colts defensive side of the ball. No. There's not in any way. There's not at all your debt are correct about that. And with lock it's not only to drive the ball outside the numbers. But you mentioned it. I mean the touch throws down the field. He's able to make and put it exactly where he needs to. Now. He's added. And I know the zip is in what it was before the shoulder surgery and the ability to spin it how he can still make all the throws you needs to make. But you look at it. The ability to put the ball very similar to what Russell Wilson doesn't Seattle. It kind of drop it right in there. You saw it on the big on the opening drive that big pass the T Y Hilton down the center of the field where he was covered by live. Or underneath the over the top. And put it exactly where he needed to put it those kind of throws make special, and I don't know if there's a quarterback right now. It's playing better moving forward here that Andrew lock not only that. But the belief figure him and TY Hilton going back seven years the belief that his wide receiver if he puts it out. There is going to go up and get it and put him in a position to succeed. And that's something that you cannot knock, and you can't sit here and give all the undue credit to Andrew luck considering the fact that going into the season, we weren't sure what type of quarterback that. He was going to be thinking about it early on. I want to see was it in Houston. And that first game where they had to bring in Jacoby percent to try throwing the hail Mary at the end of the game. That's right. It was a big attention call it a big wakeup call for everybody. Like, hey, this could not be a full season based upon where he's at physically he proved this all wrong now he did. And he had an unbelievable year and Reich as we mentioned earlier on in the segment, David. Right deserves a hell of a lot of credit because I think he ended up being the right guy in the right place at the right time. I'm not telling you that Josh mcdaniels was not a hell of an offensive coordinator wouldn't be a good candidate to be a head coach. Once again, even though he spurned the Indianapolis Colts last season. But we do know he was going to take that job decided to stay in New England for a number of different reasons and Reich ends up getting that opportunity in that job. Interesting was brought up last Sunday night. Only guy that interviewed in Indianapolis that did not ask about the health of Andrew luck. Number one, number two steps into it. Haven't been on that staff and Philadelphia with the eagles under Doug Peterson. And a big part of that game planning in order to unseat. The patriots win the Super Bowl bring that city a championship steps intended, Annapolis. And I really think the calm cool demeanor of Reich and the relationship that is built with Andrew luck. I think he's been I think the right choice was the second choice because he's done a remarkable job in that team. That team plays off their head coach. Well, you have to thank Josh mcdaniels because he did give them some help with the staff there coaching staff. You're right about that. You also have to give credit to Chris Ballard the way that he's turned around that organization as a GM you go back to earth say Grigson Grigson was a former offensive lineman drafted. The problem making sure that you secure and protect Andrew luck. From the inside out it made zero sense of for Chris Ballard to change the culture change the way of type of players that they bring in there. But more importantly have the belief in Frank Reich. Stay true. The course with everything tumbling around them what the mcdaniels change and really believe in the foundation of what they were doing and turn things around a lot of people were going crazy when they drafted Leonard in the second round that say they're taking the pick a quick Nelson in the first round panned out for him. It certainly did we're approaching I twenty here on this Sunday morning Melissa's deal with you. It is football Sunday will get into the Cowboys victory over the hawks. We'll do that next preview.

"They have established a running game. They was to have a culture of you're going. Hit our quarterback. And if they were to take away the number one rival Seaver, I just leave. Andrew luck has the wisdom and the wherewithal to get to Iran in those others, and I believe those players will be more significant than the others for the Texans. And we give you gotta give prank right? And Andrew luck. A lot of credit for getting the ball at Andrew luck. Sands for not taking those sacks. That's always been an issue that I've had with Andrew luck. And with the systems that he's played in. And he's doing so much better at protecting himself because he goes the team goes, and you see the force multiplier component to Andrew luck. Where guy like Eric Brown who didn't do anything or who struggled for as long as he did. Now comes back and has his breakout season. And he spread the ball around. A lot of guys that to me is the biggest challenge for Romeo. Cornell is okay, you gotta take away T Y Hilton. But he doesn't nice job distributing it to other guys to the second and third option. There's got to be an element to disguise and trying to make him make post nap reads, you also can't start one in five and being. In the turnament. If your team hasn't been outstanding on both sides of the ball during this stretch during this stretch winning nine of ten the number one scoring defense in the NFL is the Indianapolis Colts. So all of a sudden, and that I think that would all know people don't know that. And they're only reason why they'll be like, oh, just to take a little like, they think they know more football. That's a shocking shocking. The number one point differential team, meaning who's outscored their opponent by the most the Indianapolis Colts. It's why the Texans cannot be thrilled. This is the team they drew. It's the one of the best years in their short franchise history. The closest they've come to a buy in franchise history. And you get the hottest team in the league right now coming into your building and team that's played there every year that building's been in existence in his ad enormous success there, but the, but that being said, they also know each other really, well and these games come down two to three points or overtime. So as unlucky as it may. I seem having that firsthand knowledge to to me. That's it helps it helps you prep and look at Hebrew fluids doesn't nice job. And he has the nice job defense coordinator for the colts, and yet creative, and he did a lot of creative things less. Somebody played. It's going to be interesting to see how Sean reacts to the new wrinkles this week. Our point is the last quarter of the regular season for two teams that are now in the playoffs that would that momentum. Because one of these teams is just steamrolling people say, we're momentum real, real nickname. We were going over the playoff team this crazy and the numbers of hot teams like Nick SP, Chris can you remember the last time? I was like no typically you have three or four teams stumbling. I mean, they need a glass of water into the playoffs. Not in this year team that's made wildcard around is playing the wildcard around had slow starts and spectacular finishes. I'll go through quickly the bears of one nine of ten. The eagles won five of six. The Cowboys won seven of eight the Seahawks of one six of seven the charges won five of six. The ravens won six of seven the cult of one nine of ten. The least hot one is the Texans won eleven of thirteen. Can you write that down here notebooks next year while we're talking about this? No, I shouldn't say. Equal out what those numbers mean in this new NFL? There's a lot of things going to come out of training camp gonna scramble. But in this new NFL your team can recover you can use that month of September. The Bella check way the New England way. That's what that number shows. Right. They're off to a bad start, you can recover and build your football team. Yeah. And you got to figure out who you are. And who you need to be in good coaches and the good teams are able to do that. I got take a break. Coach stick around coming up. What are the Cowboys need from Prescott to take down Seattle? That's next. This is first thing..

"Well, you see that you like bra every athlete is full of confidence. And if he acted that way, Anthony Lynn woods show amend say, oh, man. He ain't so confident they don't think they have a chance of beating us he supposed to act that show. It is the is the chargers defense or offense gonna play any better by what Lamar Jackson said or not said, absolutely not. They're gonna come out there to play. I won every player that I'm strapping with believing yourself. You are the best at everything you do. We should all have that mentality. Because if you don't something's wrong, I love it. I hope he plays. Well in every athlete has gone to play this weekend. All believe there. Team's going to win. Whether they they say that that's the questions. They're actually question answered. How you feel an answer? Honestly to what you're saying. No jason. I don't mind what he said. I think with maturity he'll understand how to deliver his message on whether or not could this potentially be something that will be lead to bulletin board material or will ignite the other team or throw fuel on the fire so to speak. I think he'll mature into that. Andrew luck's not saying that this weekend. This is an Andrew luck. I go round, I know. But how about this? You're going into a playoff game, Greg. The opposing cornerback says man, I'm going to lockdown Jennings who he's not getting anything on me. But he didn't yours that. Okay. But again, he said that braggadocio wasn't negative. Would you want bulletin more? Material put on the Tate at all. That's all you gotta do is put on tape because here's what I love about the Baltimore Ravens. And these are the teams that I played on. And this what I loved about our teams we do what we do. And we just believe that we're going to bully you. We believe that we're better than you. We believe that we're going to out execute you start. This is what we are stop it. Yeah. What do you got loss? And you know, what all you gotta do is put on the film because I'm telling you, you don't think Philip rivers believes this you best believe full rivers like we're on a Baltimore. And we're gonna park them. I don't like the way they beat us here. We're getting back to one feels that way. I love it. I if I have any issue with it. That dude's do sponsored by captain Morgan drink responsibly captain's orders, Greg.

"He's an athlete, but you have to give him a great defense a great running game. You gotta manipulate it. Schematic? I think fold is the better quarterback so wild card weekend. I would take Andrew luck. Russell Wilson Philip rivers. And and then we go so the following weekend. Here's what you're gonna have. You're gonna have now. Andrew luck against Patrick Mahomes. Now gamma take Andrew luck. Barely again. I stand by it. Patrick Mahomes is his first year starting so you but this is only based on quarterback on quarterback. Andrew luck is a better quarterback. Pre snap experience. Understanding the entire game game plan. I see why this went badly. Okay. So Andrew luck over Patrick Mahomes. Then I will take Tom Brady over Philip rivers. Even though Phillips got better numbers. He's got significantly better weapons this year. The chargers have the best. They got they got a Pro Bowl tight end guy. Coming back to unblock, the deepest receiving Gordon. The league the deepest running back corner league so Brady over rivers than in the NFC. It's a Russell Wilson against Jared Goff. I'm an obviously take Russell Wilson. I think Jared Goff has been helped great by left tackle a superstar running back a deep passing corn. Sean McVeigh other reasons why you would normally pick Jared Goff in this situation. Yeah. But we're not doing that. It's just a quarterback face. Right. It's beloved. And then I'm gonna take drew Brees over Nick foles, obviously. Because drew Brees is one of the eight great quarterbacks I've ever seen play for forty years. I've been watching NFL football. And I have drew Brees in my great eight the following weekend. Then it's Tom Brady against Andrew luck. Why under lock is a better player right now? Then Tom Brady. Tom Brady's forty. He's declining. He's still really good. But you're asking me who's the bigger stronger more athletic better stat guy this year. One guy got ballot. Check one guy's got Frank Reich. So I would take Andrew luck over Tom Brady than in the NFC. It's tough. 'cause I love these guys. It's Russell Wilson against drew Brees. And I would narrowly take drew Brees. And again, I think a lot of it is you cannot fool him. You drew Brees is seen everything in the world. So now we have my Super Bowl in the cowherd quarterback face bracket. Andrew luck against drew Brees. And again, this is incredibly narrow, but I have the Indianapolis Colts in my face bracket winning the Super Bowl because I think Andrew lucked right now is the best most valuable player in the league. He's taking more average players in rookies. So Andrew luck wins the Super Bowl. You have a reaction to that. I'm it's still washing over me. I'm trying to process it. If you look at it as just just the quarterback on Hornak face. I still be disagree. But you know, you love Andrew luck. I think everybody loves him. I just think people have screwed up the term valuable. I think when you take I think they started the season losing five of their first six games. He wasn't fully hill. Are we doing quarterback bracket or no I'm just saying he had a bunch of rookies? It took him a month playboy toback bracket or now doing the quarterback face bracket. Yes. Andrew luck. Right now wins the Super Bowl. If the way if this happens America, look like a genius if I'm not going to give you credit if this happens because you're only going off the quarterbacks, but they are valuable tonight. A very value would not deny the maybe most the most valuable position in any team sport. So hurry. Here's a funny thing. Everybody's laughing right now. Honest feel pretty good don't get chat. I feel pretty good about it. Last year. Who who did you have any last year? I don't know. But it ended up poorly. You have luck beating Mahomes Brady and Brees you gonna problem with that member. I'm a gangster that's been established a half hour ago. I am gangster gangster. Yes. Gangster. I'm not into this gangsta. I gang side. I prefer that. If you're going to say, it did you just say gangster gangster radio gang? It doesn't quite row off the gangsta joy with the news. Heard on the news..

"But for that devastating injury that he suffered in the ball against Ohio State. But Andrew luck. Andrew luck wasn't throwing regulation NFL football in June. This guy went through everything and physically and mentally and emotionally think about think about spending a year wondering whether or not your football career is over and thinking it very well may be and then coming back starting one in five. And leading your team to the postseason. Andrew Alexa comeback player of the year. Speaking of the colts, you throw it altogether. Quentin Nelson sixth overall pick after the colts traded down from three. Darius Leonard second round pick rookie of the year. I remember ballot telling us I think it was at the league meetings in March stats that. That. It's gonna take to drafts to turn the team into a contender. Nope. Took one. He strikes me as a guy when you hear him talk. He's just like when you say football guy. That's Chris Ballard. Yeah. We we had a long interview with him at one point in the off season. And I'm sure we'll talk to him again. He he's been he has been. It's funny. The disconnect between now I want to see disk. And is it a disconnect? I don't know. We were blessed with thousands of fans out there who read PF obsessively. We had one hundred and fourteen million unique visitors in two thousand eighteen five hundred million page views just a shade under five hundred million. I in an age where everybody lies about everything. I don't wanna say five hundred million. If it wasn't was four hundred ninety eight million and change and hundred and fourteen million plus unique.

"But his ability inside the pocket to manipulate the pocket to scramble around to buy time from so either make plays with his feet or to push the ball down the field, successfully when things are off schedule. I just think he's really good at that. And then ultimately it comes down to complementary full. For me. And do I look at the Texans defense and their ability to pressure, Andrew luck. I mean that defense is is one that will give you nightmares as a former offense a player having a block all those guys would JJ watt making the comeback that he made this year. I just have more faith in the off schedule nature that I think both offenses will have to orchestrate from that. I have more faith into Shawn Watson and his ability to to move in the pocket and make plays down the field. Andrew luck. I'm. I'm jumping there right now. Andrew, look, he clearly would be the front runner for MVP headed not been for guy in Kansas City, Patrick Mahomes. I mean his numbers this year. Arguably some of the best I drew Brees would be in that that conversation as well. But what Andrew luck has done. No one saw this this year coming off of that injury that significant I don't care who you are. No one saw this coming, but what the coats have done they understand who's most important in. What is most important look at these their success started by simply protecting Andrew luck since week seven NFL, low insects. They are the they they rink. I overall in sacks allowed. So that defense that we're talking about down in Houston who can get after the quarterback we understand that they're going to get an offense of line. And you know, how important it is protect your guy who makes everything go. They don't let. Other opposing defenses touch their quarterback. And when you look at the Houston Texans on the reverse side on upside, they're dead last because of the extended plays in the ability in this is some of the some of the pros and cons that you get with a guy like Shawn Watson that you kinda take on the chin because his ability extend the plays. He does take more sexy onto the little bit more because of that. And I just trust Andrew lucked and that supporting cast more. I think the Sean watching think he comes out on top of this game one. We're talking about being able to create plays defense Allama front and being able to get after you. They going to get Andrew luck off the spot. If you look at him, his percentages and watching them move off at a spot and being able to be mobile and throw the ball and around. I notice Shawn Watson has been hit more. No, he's taking more sacks. But when his game come down to and you got to create something big and make it happen. Because if you look across the board they got both got a wide receiver. They can go through. They they got Gaza office out of the ball who can create at of the game with a game. Guess close. Gets on the line to Shaw watch and is able to extend place Doda ball down the field. And I don't think that Andrew luck is going to be able to do that towards in the game. When it gets close when Damien cloudy and JJ watt standing in his face..
