"I had no idea about the ties to the dark tower. But I'm reading rose madder now and it's like that is also kind of tying into the dark tower so there are more dark tower books than King has labeled essentially. Because you have the stand. You have this then you have rose matter almost immediately after this or immediately after this actually I think and then who knows how many more of his books will have these little tidbits but I feel like with insomnia. You're getting even more important information than maybe what we get from the stand about the dark tower. Yes and I have been told that 'cause I again haven't read the last book this ties in incredibly heavily with the last book like it is. It is something that you should read if you're reading the dark tower series. That's kind of how it's important side material will say because it gives you more background. But the connections to the tower kind of very slowly creep in and I wonder what someone would think if this is like the first Steven King Book they picked up like I feel like I. I would feel bad if you've been reading king for a long time like even if you've never read any of the dark tower books like you're kind of aware of the tower as thing and you've seen scene Rowland mentioned because he's mentioned couple times in this one never in any real capacity but he's talked about and you've heard mentioned mentioned. You've you've seen other things in that kind of hint that there's some other bigger world going on in the background of all of kings books but if this this when you like. Why do I care about this kid? Who's what's what so but if you've read any of his other stuff like I feel like this is a really rewarding read in not because of how how it manages to take the dark tower mythos and bring it into his other books and help it? really flesh out wrote how diverse works like you said like the tower has the levels and this gives a different metaphorical reading on what at those levels are and how the tower exists in all dimensions. I guess that's the word we'll go dimension. I feel like that's the only word that might suffice. Because when it comes to the fantasy elements of kings storytelling. Fantasy isn't necessarily my in January. I mean the most I've dug into fantasy really is like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings and some of Neil gaiman stuff so it's not like I'm An avid fantasy reader by any means I got into king because of his horror elements and I felt enough of that in this book for it to kind of keep me wanting wanting to figure out what happens at the end but I feel like because I've only started the dark tower and I don't really know how this ties in yet. It made it a little less enjoyable for me if that makes any sense because now I'm kind of like okay. Well did this story serve any purpose other than serving as a connection to the dark tower or is it just one of those things working was like. Oh Hey I have all these dark tower stories in mind so let me just give you a random piece and not label it as dark tower book. Yes I can totally see that 'cause I think how well the ending works for you and like the the under arching structure of why the story is happening because you're right. This is very much a on a certain level. This is very much a explanation of of character in the dark tower But it's also like a story about Ralph because the story is indirectly about the person. It feels like it's kind of trying to work at two purposes. You know trying to like tell two stories at the same time almost and it. It's really going to depend on how it works for you because I liked it but I do read a lot of fantasy novels. I went through a period of reading a lot of epic. Fantasy like big tomes So it wasn't that they do that a lot and fantasy books. That is not unusual usual to have kind of multiple purposes going in a story so for me it was like. Oh Okay I see. We're we're trying to world build and tell a whole complete story and it's a real tossup of how it's GonNa work for the individual. Yeah because the grounded rounded parts of the story certainly take place in dairy so then you're like okay. Maybe this has more than just the connection with Mike aac being part of the story and then it Kinda doesn't go that direction and once the Greek mythology came into and I was like I don't know any of these names so there's probably probably a lot that I'm missing here so I'm glad that you have clarified some of that for me and then the character in question for the Towers Patrick Danville and he appears in this book and then in the dark tower which is book seven of the series. which you said is the last book? It's not the last published book but the one after as like a space between books four and five so you know he just really stood out of order for whatever reason but as far as I know that is at the end of the dark tower series. So the fact that I'm going to now have to wait like I don't know twenty more books. Take before I get to that. I don't I think it's twenty but it's pretty close so I have quite some time before I'm going to get to it. And that's probably how people who read these books as they were being released felt because there's a huge gap between this and that dark tower book right and I mean this was ninety. This was published in nineteen ninety four and was was the dark tower. Like you said like twenty bucks and I mean I think this this would have been after the fourth one but before the big rush of the last three that it happened because he didn't publish any dark tower books for quite some time and then he had learned three back to back to back right and I think that was the from what I've read. I think I think it's an on writing. He talks about that he realized like Oh shit I better finish the series right right right and so there's at least ten years if not more space between this and the last star tower. So it's it's very very interesting to me that this character has been was set up so long in advance because it would have been weird if he didn't didn't use it but that's a lot of setup for something that doesn't come to fruition for an incredibly long period of time and from the From what the the apropos season. Not Atra Pos close and leases. Tell him like. It's kind of clear after that king knew what he was going to use this character for. It wasn't just like oh well we'll just tell this interesting story. It's like he had a plan of like okay. This character. Patrick has this purpose that he needs to get taken care of. So we'll tell the story of his life being saved so he can fulfill that purpose. Yeah and you were right. It was ten years so book six and seven both came out in two thousand four and five came out in two thousand three so he really just like cranked out the material. And from what I can tell from the gunslinger booking knew what story he was going to tell because in the early books he kept saying and you know the story will continue so obviously he had this idea in his head for years upon years because the gap between the gunslinger being released in eighty two all the way to the series quote unquote ending in two thousand and four. That's a big gap. That's a Lotta years twenty two years and then you have the wind through the keyhole which came out even later in twenty twelve so to really get get the entire story. People had to wait thirty year. So that's just crazy for a series to drag drag on that long and it's because king was putting out so many other things he didn't want the dark tower to be his only thing he was working on right that that man is ahead is obviously stuffed with ideas. They're constantly begging like commanding to be get to be released. And you know with that kind of book or that kind of series rather you have to be so careful with what you're doing because it's usually has to come at the right time it's hard to just I force that to come out and have it come out right especially for someone who's constantly coming up with new ideas and like. Oh well I really want to write this book now. Oh and I want to write this book now. And he just didn't get back to it and I think my guess would be by the time he hit the fourth book he was like. Oh God this is. This is really complicated. I'll just put it off and keep putting it off keep putting it off until like okay. I better finish this because I might die type of situation and I think that. But he's still kinda like gives us little tidbits from this and rose matter and a few other books Later on in the series are in his collection of writings were. Yeah I definitely found Ralph and Lois as a team very compelling and like I mentioned earlier that sort of what kept me going with the story because I was so invested in those two by the time you had the little Oh ball Dr doctors playing a bigger role and trump does so you have this buildup that makes you like these characters and I think that's something Matt King does so well because if I didn't like Ralf in lowest other than this podcast I would not have had a ton of incentive to want to finish that book especially with that being as long as it is. Yeah I think they're they're so compelling there so interesting and like they're so different like you just don't get to see these kind of people who and as always he writes people who are different than him because obviously he was not seventy when he wrote this book Quite a ways away from it at that point and but yet they feel so lived in as most of his characters do and I just wanted to know and I think it was a it was really good idea a start. START US getting to know Ralph with the death of his wife because when you see someone in a book who's going through that kind of trauma like you get to. I know them on this very deep vulnerable level pretty quickly. Because you're seeing how they're reacting to all of this pain and it makes us feel for Ralph and want him to feel better and then he gets the insomnia any just starts to go downhill from there and it's like I just want this guy to have win. He's got to have a win right. You know. And then his relationship at his Ann Lewis is relationship with bill McGovern who's Ralph's downstairs neighbor And I really love how the three of them have the relationship between the three of them and how they all interplay with each other because McGovern is such which so different from the two of them so it allows them to bounce off of him and creates little conflicts. Wants to keep us going as we're building to the bigger conflict exactly and a lot of what I enjoyed about this has to do with how king structured the the story as a whole but also just the various character arcs within the story. Like you said if we didn't start off with seeing the trauma that Ralph had gone through and how he was suffering with the insomnia and everything like that we wouldn't have cared as much about his story and how so it led him to lois how it led him to ultimately in the end his sacrifice which will talk about in a little bit but just the way king rights characters. I he really knows where to drop them in in the story. It's like okay. We're going to give you this character. Who has been through this horrible thanks and is struggling so much to get over it because of this other thing that came about because of it right right and that it gives us such a recent isn't root for him and I think in particular? I think one of the things I've really loved about Ralph's character is how he interacts with a deep know. WHO's the puppet bit of the puppet? Yeah he's Atra posts human puppet and how immediately Ralph is like. I've gotten no time. I'm for you once Ed. Because we see ed in the very beginning of the book where he's acting completely out of character and he's got some road rage going yeah and cursing cursing and hitting this guy who was much bigger than him in. Ralph Kinda helps defuse the situation. But then that all gets Kinda lost once You know his wife dies which is like the next scene and then we see where Ed has beaten Helen and sheet the scene where she is walking after after he's horrifically beaten her and she's walking with her baby and how Ralph becomes so enraged despite his age seventy year old man again. Dan Goes to confront this like early thirties. Dude who literally just beat the shit out of his wife and knows he.

"This is the job that I welcome build the card William occurred writing for the Wall Street journal editorial page he writes a column main street is a member of the editorial pointing me to a mystery I had never solved about the liberty bell this has to do with an inscription on the liberty bell inscribed from Leviticus bell a very good evening to you it didn't come to me until I read your column to ask well how is it there I then went and inspected because you can go online see inside and out everything written on the liberty bell I thought the crack was the whole story all right right I'm game wise Leviticus passage from Leviticus inscribed on the liberty bell in Philadelphia good evening to good evening John well it was one of the many influences on the the founders and it says proclaim liberty throughout the land so there's a new book put together by the Strauss center at there you see the university just talks about the Hebrew Bible as a foundational text of not only the American revolution but before that and throughout American history no physical link in Utica Martin Luther king and just how many people have invoked the imagery metaphors and cadence of the the Hebrew Bible to to understand American history and do you also had to have a connection to all of these unusual town names especially in New England right Zion and came in and news I and and and of it can I think it is filled with the Bible and I had always presumed that that was the book that everybody had in their farm house and that they just they just open the Bible and pointed a finger but you're saying this is consistent with the whole the whole culture of the of the late part of the eighteenth century in America yeah I mean it the language the purpose of this book is not to understand Judaism or even choose an America is understand how American leaders largely Christian view themselves through the lens of the user Israelite I mean the most probably the most popular comparison was to exodus where American saw that his latter day Israelites slinging a latter day Farrow George the third and so much so much of that you know explains how they look look and what I didn't know until I read the book is for example on July fourth when they in Philadelphia the second Continental Congress declared independence it also set up a committee John Adams Ben Franklin Thomas Jefferson to design a great feel for the new United States and they look for design the wrestling with Adams design but Franklin and Jefferson both chose imagery for accidents Jefferson had the Israelites being led by you know cloud during the day and a pillar of fire at night and Franklin more to my heart had an image of Moses with his hand over the Red Sea and Caroline is chariots being over water and and some I can't remember the exact phrase something about them this is what happens to tyrants he was just it's just so far we we've lost because we lost so much biblical literacy we've lost this kind of appreciation for how again how these Americans understood themselves I have long understood I've been told that the concept of America in many of the early fathers and these are not all pious man some of them like Thomas Jefferson we right now call anything but hi as a in their daily practices that they saw America's in new Jerusalem is that the connection as well bill that the the way they use that term I mean they saw themselves and as the Israel you know some of them didn't particularly care for Jews I think there's a letter from John Adams you know flesh and blood Jews but they they had tremendous admiration for the Israelites and that's how they saw themselves remember Lincoln famously called America almost chosen people and these concepts that are that are really unique to the Hebrew Bible chosen this exhibit is of confidence are dominant themes in American history you identify however there can be problem with this and that has to do with slavery because their IT support of slavery in the Bible you Adam right my memory is that the split of the Presbyterian church turned on that the southern Presbyterian skews the Bible and the rather Presbyterians the abolitionist use the Bible and they were competing biblical claims that could not be resolved to the churches eventually for other reasons split a specially you point to the one what is it that liberty is thy liberty in law that's a problem with that that's the phrase that's a slightly separate that's just for you today I enjoy a meal I'm a big fan of the second stand those of some of our most patriotic songs in America the beautiful ends on liberty a law I mean the that that concept which is very key to the puritan understanding of of the law and the laws liberation I mean that could have been said by Moses himself in another words that the laws were not in management's inflected on you but a key to your liberation and so forth and I think that's you know that's also with team in American life and and again to go back to Colin and as opposed to just a contract you know contract between meet you in me that just lasts as long as we're around the continent sort of is it an agreement to extend over generations and in this case included the concept of god to before god and and as part of this packed in that that sciri elemental in American history and it's hard to understand American history with out this understanding again probably the master of this kind of language was Abraham Lincoln because unlike others who might say as the Bible says he he never did that he incorporated so seamlessly into his speeches his second inaugural I think where it says the judgments of the lord or Righton and trust and in other in other language he just incorporated so well four score and seven years ago get okay cadence comes from the psalms and he just did it so effortlessly and I will and it and it continued Martin Luther king you wonder today because of the lack of sort of biblical literacy how many people could tell you what he meant twenty said I've been to the mountaintop you know everyone in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries could have told you what he meant you know the reference to to Moses and yet still there is the problem of slavery and the old right and that is not solved by language of the Old Testament its support you know that it supports stats that are that are peculiar institution that's the way they called it in the nineteen I mean the point of this book that I was referring to proclaim liberty is is just to say objectively that is that the Hebrew Bible as a foundational tax it's not to say that everything he says is right but the you have to understand that and that's the you what you're saying speaks to the role because slaveholders pointed to for example no with curse on the Canaanites that they be slaves as in genesis as the passages that approved of the Bible and Lincoln Sir refers to that remember in the he says you know both sides read the same Bible any refers to that contradiction William McGovern bill McGovern pointing here at made here at July for the Hebrew tax the Old Testament the Tara inside the founding fathers in the late eighteenth century and it's all around is just look at a map of your state and type in the words I and R. truth some you'll five five in the valley look at the crest of Yale you know in in Hebrew and so forth I mean this is such a thing is.

"The help them. There's a lot of information on the web, and it's been communicated really sense. Even during the shutdown. We work with different groups interest groups who help them complete. We're looking forward these applications will come in and early preparations of the dollar. So they can get started. This absolutely is. I think a transformational moonshot that. I believe has the ability to connect rural urban America in a way that we haven't seen before. Yeah. I think so I think there's a lot of excitement to about the program. So we're looking forward to we'll have proposed deficit loan levels sufficiently meat producer demand. We raised the direct loans and also the guarantee that was my I actually tried to raise it higher. Production costs in production agriculture gone up so much. There's no doubt about it. And I think you're recognition the farm Bill of those raising limits will help we'll see I can't answer directly, obviously based. On the stress that we've talked about Adkins Senator talk about there's a lot of demand out there. There are people that are going to look to the FSA for their lending this year that may not have in the past. Yeah. And I mean the capital requires just so high. I mean, a small farmer is still. Deploying millions of dollars in capital. And that's why you see the Konami of scale getting larger and larger farms growing larger and larger, but we'll have the census information out of this afternoon. A great data point for you all to look at some of these issues as well. The food aid programs are important. Obviously, we're cutting the budget, but this committee Odyssey's committed to them your thoughts on food aid. Again. This is something that ministration has again chosen to do. They want to make sure that it's done. Well, you all in congress have had a different opinion. And I don't know that I can disagree with that regarding how this utilized this with the Governor, David Beasley today with the World Food Program and talking about how we can be more effective in USDA and working with them in that regard, certainly the administration in the number of budgets. That's where much of the reduction comes from and the USDA budget. We acknowledged that. Yeah. And it's a win win in it. You know, we provide a certain amount of foreign aid. And to do it in a way where it also is helpful to our farmers. It just seems like a win win in that respect. She's been radio programming from Thursday WCS p from washed. Thank you for the flexibility. Provided on left in a very timely way, very helpful with the cattle producers going out there right now. Is there anything else that you want to make sure record that? I haven't brought up as far as issues. No again. I think really the disasters the real key. I mean, we've got situations that we're not going to be able to cover with a safety net this provided in the fort in eighteen farmville. And I think you all know that it's just a matter of the natives great. And for those people who are affected, it's devastating when you're in that the period or place where things have been devastated. So hopefully, we can get that resolve quickly. Well, we need to. And that's why you reflexively and responsiveness is really helpful. In addressing what's going on out there right now with with the flooding and other disasters. We appreciate that. Senator merkley. Thank you. I'm going to mention several programs very rapidly. I'll have to follow up with your team real energy savings program which enables rural co ops to do on bills. Loans for energy saving for both businesses. And households means a lot of real construction jobs is just starting to get into rhythm, fourteen co-ops across the country of Dopp that others are in the pipeline. It's real construction jobs in places that don't have them. And that's that's important African swine fever a lot of concern about the imported meat possibly contaminating. American hog production million swine of died in China just wanna follow up on what we're doing to try to prevent that from contaminating our industry, livestock, forage disaster program and very important for many of our ranchers following our forest fires out and Oregon. I know there's other different impacts across the country tornadoes hurricanes and so forth. But I'd hate to see that program. Go away. In January first twenty twenty the labeling law is going to go in for bioengineered food products. But it has a number of problems a cure c code which is a block computer code is going to have a label scan here for more information. Nobody has any idea that has to do with with getting information on bio-engineered. Plus, nobody in supermarkets gonna stop and scan those those codes, and they're not even going to be informed. Why they would would do. So the bioengineered sugar and oil is exempted from being considered bioengineered. I know my colleague from Michigan was assured that that would not happen. But that's exactly what we thought would happen from the language. That was inserted is exactly what is happening. So it's really misleading of congress and the American people we can do a lot better on giving information in a pathway to get the details. I realized not everything can be put on the package very concerned about the clean water. Supply and wastewater treatment small communities have to meet new standards, but it's really expensive to do for small number of people. And so there is a calculation of the subsidy rate that has expanded in ways that are very surprising. I'd like to have my team sit down and understand better. How the subsidy could have risen from from point one seven percent to two almost five percent over two years, which means because of that calculation far fewer grants and loans can be put out to these small communities, and I can tell you that is a big problem for them being able to have a growth or industry in these rural communities, and then I wanted to turn to snap and Oregon uses the waiver, and I've got a list here of the counties that are received two we have thirty six counties twenty two of which got the waiver. This is over the three months in a twelve month period. They're all very rural. Counties. I mean, this is this is striking at the heart of role, Oregon where you don't have the same jobs. You have in an urban area. You have transportation difficulties that, you don't have. Elsewhere was we get more mechanized in the sector, a lot of the jobs, disappearing ranches and farms, so that's affecting them. We don't have real housing construction, which we just talked about. So I think the states should be left in power to make this decision. But this proposed rule, you're not you're striking my poorest most rural counties with this rule. I think that the state make the decision lead the state's empowered and just on this piece. I do want to take my last minute. And and see if you have thoughts about it. Certainly we still give the state some authority to do that they still can determine let me just give you the guidance here state agencies responsible for assessing an individual's fitness a work on able bodied issues methodically and comprehensively the individual gun need to be receiving disability benefits. We believe again from the education training. Our goal is to help these people to sustain permanently not indefinitely own a food assistance program, which we think is more helpful. You can have volunteer twenty hours a week, volunteer and others if. If your local communities are higher unemployment there. They're still the waiver applies to them over that as well as the state having twelve percent set aside for no reason at all. So we think the flexibility that Sates are given us properly is in keeping with the farm Bill from a perspective of nineteen ninety six over the work requirements. I'll tell you the average lifetime in America's twelve months. So that's over a lifetime of working lifetime. Four hundred and eighty months that's pretty pretty small factor. And again, this these are my most rule, my most difficult places to find jobs that are going to be affected by these these changes, and we've had we've often been a state that among the hungriest in the nation. Not something we like. But this this will make our situation in rural Oregon a lot worse. We look forward to dressing all of these other issues that you've aggressed and we want to we want to converse with your staff and answer your concerns over these issues as well. Senate appropriations subcommittee hearing with agriculture secretary Sonny Perdue. Senator maria. German. Thank you, Mr. secretary. Thank you. Let me go back to something. The chairman said talking about food aid. And I would highlight. Unfortunately, there are four famines ongoing around the world today. I want to particularly talk about McGovern dole, or as we say in Kansas Bill McGovern food program every year that this program has been zeroed out, which is every year in the last three. The explanation is unaddressed oversight and performance monitoring challenges mister secretary of those I say this with a smile, but if those really exist fix the problems don't zero out the account, and I this is an important program to our country. It's farmers. But most importantly, it helps lots of young people be fed around the globe. And I would encourage department support. In fact, I visited with you and with others about I remember showing you a pile of grain in front of an. Elevator from to harvest ago that hasn't been marketed yet. And then we learn and know that there's people who die every day because they don't have food, and we ought to do a better job of connecting the two. In a. More specific issue. I know that a month ago the effort began to hire a new director at the national bio, science laboratory. This position. I hope he would share. My view is absolutely critical to the future of this project. And I'm curious as to where we stand on on the recruiting efforts. I hope it was more than just an announcement that you're hiring. I hope that you've been out encouraging individuals to apply people with certain characteristics. Backgrounds and intellect tell me where we are in that regard. Please we're not as far along as I would like our recruitment efforts have not been as aggressive as I would like and we've had discussions recently about that about fulfilling that beautiful facility coming along. Well, we appreciate the transfer the appropriations from the DHS to here, but it can't run without the right people. And I know that I share your concern about that. If you don't know at the moment, would you let me or my staff know, how many physicians beyond the director are posted and remain open. We will do that. Thank you very much. Then let me visit just a couple more issues in the last farmville. We were successful in including. Legislation called farmers. I this deals were suicides. Among producers, the committee provided this committee provided two million dollars in fiscal year for the two thousand nineteen network can you speak to the importance of rural mental health services. Fill in the gaps in what is currently available to those farmers and ranchers. I'm looking for an update on the farm and ranch stress..

"Batchelor. The shutdown. Welcome Bill McGovern. The Wall Street Journal writes main street is a member of the terrible who has a completely fresh view of the shutdown. And this amazing fact think about it just now what I'm about to say, the Republicans are not being blamed Belle, a very good evening to you. How did this happen? How did I not see it? How after all these years of blaming the Republicans for everything. Gingrich said today has Mr. McConnell McCarthy escaped blame for the shutdown. Good evening, John. Well, it's mostly because of Mitch McConnell. He is a master of strategically doing nothing as he showed in the Merrick garland and non drawing attention to himself. But basically in a nutshell it's this in in one swoop by saying he's not going to send a Bill up to the president that the president won't sign. He protects President Trump. He drives Chuck Schumer. Insane. Because there won't be any of these bills, and he insulates his Republican senators from criticism because they don't have to go on the record these Sony votes. So you know, you mentioned the Republicans are not getting the blame some of the polls might just otherwise because they say who do you blame President Trump and the Republicans are Pelosi in the democrat. Oh, well, that's that's that's a. There have been polls. And there was one that came out today that if you break it up who do you blame President Trump gets the most blame I think it's almost half Nancy Pelosi gets either quarter to a third blaming her. But Republicans only get four to five percents. So they're not they're not really feeling the pressure. I mean, I can't believe all these beltway stories about Republicans feeling the pressure to crack, I don't see it. The house doesn't really matter. Right because anti Pelosi has majority of the Republicans in the house don't really feel any pressure. It's in the Senate and McConnell, just by not doing anything. We leave them a lot of pressure. They can go around, and they could say the shutdown stupid. I wish it would end. But they're not forced into these votes. That Senator Schumer wants because he wants us to say, the United States Senate is eight times to open the government and Donald Trump won't do it and Mitch McConnell won't give it to them. But there's a twist here. And this is even more delightful than Republicans not being blamed the twist is that Nancy Pelosi is standing back with their arms folded and not taking an opportunity that might not come again in this congress. How so Bill. Well, look, this is the way I explain it. And you would understand if I went to MRs mcgurn, and I said, you know, what I'm thinking of going to go for week with my college roommate's? Let's just say that would put MRs mcgurn and an excellent bargaining position to get something that she wanted that. Somehow, our husbands stood in the way, you know, Nancy Pelosi controls one chamber of the house. Right. She doesn't control the Senate. If you look at the next two years, it's hard to think she's going to be in a better position ever to get something from President Trump. And there's where the dynamic is really subtly different on on the on the top line. It looks like. Trump and Pelosi are equal Trump's has won't sign a Bill that doesn't have the funding. I want for the wall. Pelosi says never going to give him that funding. The differences Trump's willing to give the Democrats some things to compromise to get that funding and MRs Pelosi isn't an I'm just not sure that over the long term, that's a sustainable policy for her to say she's made it clear. There's nothing Trump could give her that we get her to reconsider. I'm not sure that's a sustainable to this puzzle. Early Bill when MRs Pelosi on the night of the twin speeches. Really went to moral language calling the ball moral and calling and saying that it was unacceptable on moral grounds. She said it was cruel. And that puzzled me because as Anna position, you can parse or rearrange later. It's sounds like you don't have an argument. Right. So you call people named I mean that was an interesting inversion that night. I don't think the president's speech was among his best. You know? I'm not sure it really move the needle so much at least made us over reason case for his position, and he didn't name call and the roles were reversed, you know, Mr. Schumer and MRs Pelosi, you're saying this was malice and misinformation and all he did was kind of name call. And of course, the press wouldn't call him out on the puzzle here. Also for me Bill. I mean, we've got to talk about this. We're talking about five billion dollars. I mean Bill is not the money. It never was the money. And there is a wall. I looked at a picture of the Arizona border. There's a wall there's been a wall for some time, whatever they're planning on building is in is is a supplement to the wall that exists. So I have to believe that Pelosi's approach to this is to break Donald Trump. Now, there's something in her temperament that wants a victory over the president of the United States in January of twenty nineteen. Yeah, I'd say two things one is if you look at the history of shutdowns, generally, it's the congressional side that loses, you know, Newt Gingrich's considered to lost to shutdown in ninety s I I think John bainer this shutdown with Obama's considered to come out on the leasing side. And of course, last January Chuck Schumer loss when he called a shutdown over Dhaka. And then then default, but John that does tell you something. From the party surpr-. It's a lot easier for president to hold his line. Then for the leader in congress because the president just it's just himself. You know, if he says, I'm not going to do this. He doesn't need anyone else. Right to do this where in congress you have to keep controls your caucus. So I'm just not sure she's gonna do that. I think a lot of caucus. I mean, the temptation for the Democrats. The next two years is to make their priority sticking it to Trump or denying him a victory rather than doing what might be best for them. And I think that's where they are. Now that their primary goal is is not getting like, the DACA people. They want dreamers that the Democrats would consider that a great victory that that would just they went they went they shut down the government last year over that. Right. So I think they could get that. But so I don't I don't understand look, I think Trump hatred enter agree with everything the president does. And there's a lot of stuff. He does that. I don't like, but the Trump hatred blind people and drives them into doing dumb things. I I mean part of me thinks I'm not a huge fan of the wall. I mean, I think there are other things you can do into this not my priority. But he made it a signature issue. He can't surrender on it. And the Democrats have to recognize that. And I think what Trump is doing what they don't realize. I think he uses a wall in his tweets. Dr Democrats crazy to save the hear it, and they can't help themselves. What he's really doing is making this debate. And saying this debate is really not just about the wall. It's a choice between. In border security and no border security. And I think the Democrats are losing that fight. Because I don't think anyone takes us seriously on security do all this footage of Democrats being four fences and restrictions and different things until Trump embraced it right now, they have a different opinion. And I I don't think they have a credible case on border security, and I think that's what Trump is doing on the issue. And if we have this other caravan forming, I guess I I just think it plays into his hands. And they're they're also denying they wanna say there's no crisis at the border at all. I mean, you can you can believe that the wall is not an answer. But to say that it's just a manufactured crisis. Wave all these kids coming over. I I don't see that these are long term sustainable positions by the Democratic Party Beverly garden, he writes mainstream. Remember that ATar board of the Wall Street Journal. I'm John Batchelor. This is the John Batchelor show..

"Join us just like Marlin MAC, and let's see just like Whitney mercilus did on the shell Pennzoil performance line. And things are getting a little weird down in Tampa Bay. I thought and it was it was a horrible interception. From Jameis Winston edge. Flat out missed was the line was linebacker for Cleveland. Jumped up and made that I mean, let's Jimmy Collins's as athletic as you're gonna find. Jumps up interceptions sets the Browns up in bucks territory. And then you gotta fumble from Djibril peppers. They give football right back to Tampa Bay. And that's where we're at at the moment to the bucks maintain possession. But this one I think if our live wagering this one looks like it's headed for a top three twelve to play that one really hurt. Stocks have the football one. Really hurts. Now, they're they're on their in Brown's territory, forty seven and a half yard line. So we'll see. There are underway in Landover. Maryland redskins. Cowboys Dallas nothing doing on their first drives Washington takes over a three and out for the Rams on their first possession. Jared Goff took a sack Niners. Pretty awesome throwback. Uniforms Rams are too but the Niners ones remind me of like Merton Hanks and Dion agreed that. Yeah. Clean clean, white pants, white jerseys real clean. Look, they're purple and purple for the ravens at home against the saints. Okay. What are we say? That was not a fumble for Alvin Kamara. It was just a failed fourth down conversion is that the official ruling on that. Should look like a fumble. It looked like it was kind of a backwards pitch lateral that the ravens recovered on the sideline. Either way being the saints squandered an opportunity down in the red zone to be able to score points. And and that's that's what this ravens team has been built on their defense defense defense defense. It's funny. Because rainy you ask that question. Yeah. And the reason why it's of consequences. Oh, yeah. Been football. Like, I love this like who cares? Like the end result. I don't mean that kind of suddenly I mean, it's a great illustration of just how much people means to us like whether the believe it or not it was still a turnover on downs. But now, let's get to a main attraction to the show. Let's get to it. Let's get to the victorious visitor's locker room in Philly, maybe out near the buses. It is Panthers linebacking nightmare. Luke Keithly joining us. It's operation football on ESPN radio on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Luke. We have one of your guys Mark hers lick here with us in studio. And he was just singing your praises during the game. Say look this is where you're gonna drop back in coverage. This is we're going to do that. This is where it's going to work. This is where it's not he was dead on. He was dead. How well does this man know, you Luke taught me everything when I got there as a freshman Ellas marks here when he was when he was doing with cancer. So he was like our second coach was him and Bill McGovern. Mark showed me everything, you know, how to play where to go to get stuff done how to watch tapes. And you know, without Mark, man. I don't know if I'd be here. So he's he's a good, dude. I learned a lot that's on the record. So that is a Baluch. No seriously. I thought that too plays kind of stood out to me from you. Specifically in the game that I think people who watch you play week to week or are you still on? But when skin running back screen, and you're able to slip under a blocker and make a big stop in the backfield. How much of that is? Game prep in studying film, and how much of that is reaction on the field. I think a lot of it's you know, you see it in in the in the week of crap. But they ran that play earlier in the game. And they got a bunch of yards on they kind of ran the same play out of the same formation in the same movement pre snaps and once they they got that guy across I just looked at the running back, and he kind of had a screen looks. So it's one of those things came back to it because it was successful. And we're able to make a good play on it. Just one last play that that, you know, at the end of the game, you drop back in the middle of the field, and you're underneath that. What would be touchdown routed able to break past where last week the eagles kinda hit one in the middle of fuel right in the same spot. How much of that is again is game prep in. Did you see that coming in? You just knew that's where the ball is going to be a lot of it's a lot of its game prep and a lot of its who they like going to the red zone and Alcyone kinda ran that that seemed ball right down the middle. So you know in a crucial situation on time these quarterbacks go to guys that they feel comfortable with. So I was able to be underneath. And then Mike Adams our safety was able to come over and make a good place while so good play. Bye. Bye, mike. He was able to kind of jump in their deflect itself. It's always good to you out there making the Nabet look you guys have had no shortage of tight games. So far this season. How much have the first five games you guys played? Contributed to what you guys were able to do today in a crunch time game against one of the best teams in the NFL. It's one of those situations that we've been in before you know, we've had the ball at the end of the game. And you know, the previous two times either we didn't give offense enough armor. We weren't able to score. But you know, we got a couple of stops gave him plenty of time. They were able to go down there and pulling away at the end. So it's one of those things you learn from stuff earlier in the year, and you hope you can improve on it moving forward. Those guys went down and made a big play back against the wall there at the end of the red zone made a couple of good calls. Everybody get off to with that big. Leuke clean. Thank you for the time. Congrats on the win the largest comeback for a winning Carolina Panthers history. Anything you want to say to Mark before? We let you go. Mark. Keep doing your thing. Man. Thanks bye. Greg win today. It was really cool as you guys come back. Unbelievable job by you, the defense and also offense really finding ways we're points. Great work. Cool. Thanks Mark died. That is Luke. Joining us is all guest you on operation football via the shell Pennzoil performance line. We have an update while we were gone Cowboys at Redskins guitar, man. Aaron in Landover, Maryland, Aaron what's going on. Well after that eagles lost this game between the Cowboys Redskins for first place in the NFC, Ethan. The Redskins have struck first Capri the screen filling in for the injured. Chris Thompson takes it. Twenty three yards down Alex Smith or to thirty five yard Adrian Peterson. Got four carries for twelve yards and ten nineteen left in the first quarter. The Redskins leads seven nothing aeronautics with the update there from Redskins. Cowboys were Washington was pulling out all the stops this week trying to gear up the rivalry one more time and a lot of it has to do with sagging ticket sales to be perfectly honest. But the message was received Redskins have a little extra bouncier is Jonathan Allen just wrapped up Zeke Elliott for a loss. Lost about two or three, but Zeke has owned Washington in his young career. He has what five rushing touchdown. He's been terrific terrific in this game. By the way, all of a sudden because of what Luke Keith the Panthers due to the eagles this game determines who will have the lead in the NFC east as week eight begins whether you want to on Tuesday morning course, the giants play on Monday night. So there's a lot at stake here. A lot at stake between these Redskins Cowboys teams to that. You know, maybe if you were to value with them on paper he'd say, nah, probably not playoff-caliber with the way, the NFC east of shook out so far and some of the I don't want to call it growing pains eagles have experienced. But just some of the uncharacteristic things we've seen from Philadelphia earlier on early on this season. Like, maybe the door is not wide open. But it's at least for now ajar which most people at week eight of the one probably said, no way. Emcees last ten years. Probably you have a record of a team getting into the playoffs and waiting the vision that wouldn't necessarily get into the playoffs in any other division. But that's kind of the way the NFC east has worked in the Washington Redskins are a team that no one's really talking about. They are good team. And they have a solid defense which really keeps a minute. You know, but watching watching their run game. And and you you see a guy come into this team and make their run game kind of really interesting and Adrian Peterson has done that. And and I really like what he's been able to do and still do. And it's what you expect of him. Maybe ten years ago, but he's still doing it right in. No, no, Chris Thompson today for Washington has been sort of king of the check down reception from Alex Smith. So they're going to need to get contributions through the passing game from somebody today. Another other banged up Washington so far with a seven nothing lead lining up for a fifty nine yard field goal down in Tampa is Chandler. Zara. We'll see if that goes through if it does it's over in the bucks win the Browns playing in their third overtime game of the season. And it's only week seven that plus points on the board out San Francisco. We'll tell you who did it and what it means for the scoreboard. It's field gates, Mark herzlich Radi. Scott with you operation football, ESPN radio and the ESPN app operation.

"And by Foxwoods resort casino. The wonder of it all Mr. Dottino. How you doing this morning? Good morning. Richard looking forward to this trip down to Dallas later on today. Yeah. I mean, it's the second game of the season, and you know, early in the season. Alright you win you lose. Who's whatever. But it's looking like this is going to be a really important game for the giants. They've got Houston next. That's going to be tough at Houston. They've got the saints Carolina Panthers. And the Super Bowl champion eagles at Atlanta. They've got a tough schedule. And this is a game that they really really do need to win. No, I agree with you, Richard. And you know, over the course of time, and you, and I have come across many coaches who have said I break the season two halves others break the season into quarters. I kinda liked the quarterly approach and for the giants. It's been my opinion since the off season started that they needed to go in to in the first four games because as I've said many many times over it takes timber for a team that has had so many changes to truly get their sea legs under them until they can really find out who it is that they are that first month of the season is almost like an extended training camp. It's ridiculous to say. But that's really what it's become. In today's NFL game. So if you're the giants and can somehow get the two into now, you've got yourself a twelve game season with your sea legs under you, and you can now go to war and see what it is that you can put forth on tape. But you're right. I mean already losing that first game to Jacksonville, which was absolutely winnable. They now put themselves in a spot where they gotta win two out of three to meet my litmus test. So that they are five hundred going into October. Absolutely. Well, I mean, the big story, of course, the offense of line. You look at the right tackle, Eric flowers and the tough game that he had. But I gotta tell you. I was not impressed with the left tackle soldier who they gave all this money to he had a couple of critical breakdowns as well. A subpar performance by all five starting offense of linemen. And if you excuse any of them, you're making a mistake. None of them play particularly. Well, not good at all in the running game. Barkley had a break one off on his own for sixty eight. Eight yards enforce four minutes chapels on the play for the giants to put up a respectable rushing number. The pass protection was clearly better than the running blocking. But still not where it needs to be. But Richard I would say this to you. Five new starters on the offensive line. We talked about it last weekend. They played a combined total of five quarters together. During the preseason to me. This is a significant problem around the NFL where you have coaches and justifiably so because of the money that's being paid to these guys plus the salary cap. They don't wanna play their starters too much during the preseason. Well, you combine that with a watered-down training camp? And this is the kind of results you're going to get a specially from offensive lines that have been shuffled during the off season. It's going to take these guys several weeks to come even close to what they should be able to do on a weekend and week out basis. It is not a surprise to me that they struggled. It's disappointing. You certainly wanted them to at least come out of the box, adequate they were not even adequate. But again, these coaches, I get the fear, but until they start playing these guys more. Or have tougher training camps, which they can't do because of the CBA. This is what we're going to see the first few weeks of the season last week that could not score twenty points off sensitively. That's not good for the game. I think you're absolutely right, Paul. I mean it it's like September is extended training camp. They don't get enough rats. We can blame this on the practices in the rules to. But you can also look at the fear that God if you put these guys in and somebody gets hurt. Oh, you've got him hurt in a meaningless game. And I honestly I don't know what the solution is other than to what do you do? Do you reduce the number of preseason games? Do you make it to hand touching the preseason? What do you do? Well, you know, if if these guys are going to jail, especially along the trenches they're up front, but the defensive and offensive lines. But specifically an offensive line. They gotta work together. They've been live game action together, they've got a gel and mash and hit and and work off each other's combo blocks in instincts. So no, you can't lighten it up. That's only gonna make things worse. What you need to do is loosen up the CBA so that they can have more difficult. Training camps. The players union will never go for that. We both know that. So maybe the only realistic solution is to tell every team what you're gonna do is have two full weeks of practices with other teams around the league. But lions did that this year they went out to California and had a full week of practice with the raiders then had a week of practice at home with the giants. Now, they got whacked in the first game against the jets. So maybe that's not a great example. But I do think that listening to coach Pat Shurmur and the other members of the staff they did think that that week in Detroit against the lions was worth a lot more than a training camp practice, and in some ways may have even been more valuable than an exhibition game because as you and I both have just said the regular don't play exhibition games anyway. So how much could they be worse? So that would be my take maybe the league could arrange something where every team. Gets to practice two weeks against two other opponents around the league. Let me ask you this. And it's it's sorta jet giant related Davis Webb, of course, was with the giants when they went to Detroit and they practice with them and worked out with them. And then after the game against the jets a lot of people were saying it was like they knew what we were going to call. They knew our formations is it possible that Davis Webb observing practices gave the jets valuable information in terms of what Detroit was going to do in that first game. Well, there's certainly something to be said for that. I mean teams talk all the time about debriefing players who come over from another team a week or two later, and they're able to glean some things I don't think it was very much. What certainly they they had a chat with them. I'm think we'd be naive to think they didn't have a conversation with Davis to figure out anything that he might have been able to pick up, but you have. To believe that it was minimal. Let's give the jets credit. They played a sensational game. That might be the best. They will look all season long. And they hammered the living heck out of the lions. So you know, where that goes from here who knows, but I'm sure there was a conversation. Yeah. I would I would think so we're talking giants football with Paul detino. And no Olivier Vernon in this one. They're hoping to get him back for Houston. Is that what they're looking at now. Yeah. That's what coach Shurmur told us yesterday. And it looked more and more apparent as the week went on this past week that would be the case. And so you looking again at the combination of Lorenzo Carter, the third round pick and kinda by win basically taking a lot of those snaps in Ronin spot, and they're not going to necessarily go back and forth passing down running downs. According to Shurmur correct in terms of Carter and borrowing. Well, no, the thing with Darwin is that because he's so experienced, you know, he's gonna leak for more than a decade, Richard. He's capable of playing any doubt. I mean, you know, he knows the playbook. Shabby we member he was with Bill McGovern the giants linebackers coach when they were both with the Philadelphia Eagles. He also knows Pat Shurmur very well. It's not like he doesn't know any aspect of the playbook. He does not have to be a one or two down backer. Well for that matter sub package, backer. He can play on any doubt. And quite frankly, Lorenzo Carter has been really good picking a lot of stuff up. It looks as though after his experiences at Georgia or he played in a variety of different schemes that he can probably play every down to. So it'll be a matchup situation kind of a feel of that kind of thing and ginormous Jenkins, even though he's had some family issues. Expect them to go tomorrow night. I played a good game against Dallas Dallas was unable to put too many points on the board. And you know, Zach Prescott his gone Dak Prescott has gone from this young quarterback. I look who they found to a guy that a lot of people wonder if he can play in this league. What are they expecting from Prescott this week? Well, you have to believe the press. God's going to do a lot more rolling out more boots. I mean, look what happened when Bortles tried out against the giants last week. He ripped off a forty plus yard run until the giants show and it happened in the preseason too. I might add until they show that they can defend the edges. Well, and by the way, that's a big loss with Livia Vernon because he does defend that edge, which would be the right side of the giants defense exceptionally well against the run. We always talk about him as a pass rusher. But his rush defense is very solid until the giants prove that they can defend the perimeter against rollouts and boots. And things of that nature. You have to believe that teams will continue to try. It Prescott certainly has the mobility to try to do that. I did talk to the bar win and allegorical tree about his movement mobility this week, and they said look he really wants to move to throw it. He's not looking. Run if he doesn't have to he'd rather just buy time and throw well this week given the giants weaknesses out there on the edges. He may be looking to run a little bit more on the offensive side of the ball. Evan. You know, the tight end has to catch the ball drops again have plagued this guy. Yeah. Yeah. To critical drops last week. Particularly the one inside the last four minutes when ball was in his hands. And then got knocked out can't happen. I I think everybody understands that. He worked hard dirty off season. He looked terrific in mini camp. Look terrific over the summer looked as though the drops of last year. When when I think I had him for fifteen had disappeared, and then they showed up again in week one of the regular season this year. So clearly disappointing. He knows it. He works hard. He's conscientious. He's a really good young man who has has busted his butt to get better. It just didn't show up. Now could that have been partially because of the wet ball? We know the ball was wet last week. It was drizzling and missing and not great weather. No excuse though, if you wanna be one of the premier receiving tight end in the game you have to make those plays, Richard. And I think he knows that. Okay, Paul time. But again critical came second game of the season at Dallas tomorrow night. We'll have it here for you on the fan. Enjoy the trip. Thanks so much, Richard. Okay. Paul detino next. We'll take your phone calls. You can type giants jets. Serena. If you.

"Batchelor this is the John Batchelor show in, these last days much attention to a freedom of information act release of the Pfizer court warrant applications by the FBI and the, department of Justice beginning in October of two thousand sixteen and extending into 2017 the Trump administration, to permit surveillance national surveillance on an American citizen and an Annapolis graduate and a man on television much the. Time Carter page the puzzle here is what's in those documents that we can see because about three quarters of it is blacked out what's in the documents we can see is that the FBI and the department of Justice vouchsafed an application that was built upon what we know to be salacious. And unverified material and then an article in the open press written by Michael Isikoff that endorsed the salacious and unverified allegations because the source of that article was. Christopher Steele himself The man who made up, the dossier Bill mcgurn the Wall Street Journal editorial board he writes mainstreet is here to go beyond this puzzlement. Over an application that is so ma- lacking in credibility to what the Pfizer court needs to answer what it needs to understand about the doubts now raised Bill a very good evening to you the Pfizer court is a collection of distinguished jurists who have been used these many years as a. Check and balance on overreaching or a distrusting surveillance by the United States government is it now working that we can see in these applications good evening to you No I think look John the size court grew out of a. So called reform like a lot of other, terrible ideas grew out of the sort of general anti, Nixon fever and reaction, to Watergate and some of the other abuses that we saw and I can't claim any originality the. Argument I, have echoes one that Robert Bork made forty years ago and our page is predicting all these problems and it really comes down to this since FDR presidents have argued that the right to Meyer the electric, communications a citizen together for Intel. Intelligence for national security was prerogative of the president right and would fight it did is it added judges to the equation judges who have no competence in this area and the result is what we see in this application a lack of, accountability how many times If you heard this dossier defended and that's the dossier, the application defended like four judges signed off on it, I mean what does. That really mean You know. And to, go back to regional principles Number, one spying, on an American is a big step you know, for? The government, or should be a big. Step right and two we have an example here what looks to be opposition research by one presidential cabinet Mrs Clinton used to instigate an. FBI investigation of the other candidate or. His campaign, and I mean either very dangerous things in addition I just want to observe one thing, before we go to the fisa, court's credibility here the application repeatedly the first one especially the the critical one before the election is. Is decided this is of two thousand sixteen states that. Carter page is an. Agent of a foreign power it just declares it. It doesn't prove it doesn't attempt to prove it it just declares it and the, court is sitting there reading? This, and, not asking how do you know this well that's that's why I say it, is an, important step because the presumption of FIS Warrant is probable cause to believe that the person you wanna survey is an agent of a foreign power. Not just that he has on popular. Opinions on, Russia or whatever it is but that he's actually in some way working for a foreign. Power and it's just it's just, it's it's it's an outrageous saying look there's nothing wrong with accepting information from dubious sources just as. If you were the FBI and you're getting organized crime. You know the people. That are gonna come forward and say selling so. Wax so and so they're probably not alter voice right probably criminals themselves and in, foreign intelligence you're going to? Get, a, lot of information from people who might be compromised themselves or have ulterior motives In that case with the FBI is supposed to do is take, the claims like take the, claims, in the dossier say Carter page met with this person and verify it instead what the FBI here was astounding it. Just said well we work with Christopher Steele before we thought he was a good. Guy so we kind of believe what he? Says I mean that's incredible then it, turns out of course remember they had a sever their relationship with Christopher Steele because he lied to them What steal presents, and the columnist. Source but he's not he's an. Aggregate or of hearsay what I. Read from this Bill and I'm an amateur but I read that the government can use hearsay to bring the full, weight, of national surveillance on me and everybody I've ever emailed with or talking to but that's. What it means, that, this level here say somebody says you know he's you know I don't. Like the paid for by by your by. Arrival rival, campaign I. Mean it's really incredible, Al he, this is look they say that the redacted material so you were talking about right Support? The the warranty and other? Cases all let's go back remember Andrew McCabe testified before the house intelligence committee in and said under. Of under oath heroes and very unequivocally no? Dossier no warrant there's a reason he's called source number one in in, this application now, maybe it does have some other information, but it is interesting to me that the people. Like us we want to information made public so we, could see it and the people that are arguing that it's going to have more information on Carter page and other sources they don't really wanted released you. Know and why is that what does that tell you, the court, itself may, I, believe judge, Collier is mentioned in signing these four different judges signing this do we. Need an, explanation from them are are, they in some. Cloister somewhere that they can't comment. On all these all these suspicions I I agree look at, this, this, is what. You get from having judges and it they have no particular competence. Problems, one either they just defer to the, intelligence services right because the intelligence services know more about the, subject than they do in which case the oversight doesn't mean anything or they might insert their own judgments where they have no particular authority to do it I think it's a real problem for, the separation. Of powers I mean? It's hard to be the? Article three towers constitution really think that judges should be inserting themselves in this kind of executive decision. In addition as we see it in models? Everything it means in other words if I were the attorney general and I wanted to Survey you I mean I think long and hard before. I put my name on the application if. No one else is reviewing it right, and? I might get called before congress a lot of things that might. Happen to me but if I just say you know I'm gonna put it there we'll see what the judge says you just throw. Whatever you want it to wall and see what sticks and. That's a, that's a really bad way to handle something this serious one of the signatories of the four applications was deputy attorney general rod. Rosenstein who is still with us in making, decisions. He signed. One of these, applications is he accountable for that signature at this point They. Should be accountable but what is, the way that we hold judges accountable to this we really don't again back, to this article that Robert Bork wrote in one thousand nine hundred seventy eight at our, pages it's a. It's a, prophetic article and he said you know is is a congressional. Committee likely, to get one of these judges before to give explanations about what he. Did I don't think so and you know, I think in that sense you know, I mentioned this is sort of an outgrowth of. One of these really bad, ideas like, the War Powers Act coming. Out of the seventies and Watergate. And Nixon and so forth and this is just a really bad idea. And just it, seems to me we're getting further and further. Away from. The constitutional sensible of oversight and accountability which is to the elected representatives of the American people and more to judges two. Inspectors general special counsels you know. All these sort of dubious other ways to do Bill McGovern writes main street for, the Wall Street..

"I think Seattle is going to trade him with over all changes that they've made throughout the organization. I could see them trading Earl for a draft pick or a player, especially before training camp. Earl is still a good player. He's in last year contract once an extension, they don't look like they're going to give it to him. So the only way to build. Resolve. This is to let the player move on, I think is going to be traded as well. Typically, we see player for pick trades in the league, but if at training camp, if a team that drafted has amid around off into Lyman, for example, really? Oh my goodness. This guy's ready to play right now, and he's going to take the spot of a veteran offense of lime in. That's could be the rare player for player. Trade were team need to safety.

Finally, linebacker Conor bar way and signed a two year deal with the New York Giants borrow and help turn the Rams around. Last season will hope to do the same for the g. men who finished last season with only three wins, see what does the giants defense need to do to return to form this season for one, they got to like each other. I mean, they didn't like being around each other. You heard a lot of backlash. Collins, ally. Allah the big time draft pick and then performance forget about all the bickering, everything they did not play the tight of defense that the giants need to build a play or are capable of plan. Connor Bravo. What is he going to bring? Well, he's fortunate Bill McGovern was as linebacker coach and Philadelphia when he had his career high of fourteen and a half sacks. So he's very familiar with this, but he's a situational pass rusher he can't play. He's not a three down player, but if you put him into the rotation day, p p trade him off the Tampa Bay. So there are some snaps that Concha derby to get to the passage. The giants to me of never had a playoff team where they didn't get to the past. So I spent a Bill to run the ball. I expect them to be very exciting on offense event, but for them to have playoff aspirations to exceed the what I think are the small expectations of the football experts. Man, this defense has got to be physical, got build to get after the quarterback, and it starts. With the rotation of players like Connor, I'm glad you start with got to like each other because that's where I think Conor bar win actually can be as useful as he will be on the field is he has been a great locker room guy everywhere. He's gone. He's been a popular player. I was in Houston when he got there. If you guys remember famously those Texans Letterman jackets the day, they played the patriots. They ended up. They had to burn those DAX's out, embarrassing that game. But that was like a team building thing that Connor bar when and Sean Cody orchestrated together, which very Very, own success. it was very unsuccessful. They got mortified in that football game, but as far as the locker room leading up to the game, he he's was a team leader in Philadelphia when he was there, you mentioned the coordinator who's a good player for Los Angeles last year. But so I think we good in the locker room and he'll be good situational guy for the giants..

Peterson because he's calling plays and I could be like well he he he. Has an effect on the game did a baseball manager really doesn't have the same effect as some other sports but the one thing Charlie manual proved was that. He knew he knew when the, push buttons on guys at what time to get the most out of. Them, the club houses to. Come, in you'll spend a lot of talented players to which helps. What he.
