This is the Sean Salisbury show. I'm sorry that we couldn't get this team over the Hump couldn't get over the hump last year year before but And obviously early on this year. But we it wasn't from lack of effort We did win four division championships here that we're very proud of one four division championships in six years. So we did a lot of good things here, but we didn't do enough. We didn't bring a super bowl to Houston which I believe eventually someone will I think this is a a championship team that's that needs to get things turned around right now but I believe in this this team. I respected the decision John You know look I know in this business You know when when we lost the Minnesota a game that we you know we had a chance to win give Minnesota credit. They did a great job and I i. You know I knew that like this could happen that's that's the business you know you start off like that but I have tremendous respect Cao Cao called me and we had a nice conversation and you know I think pretty opportunity and I told Emma. they've got a good team here in, they'll turn around. I don't make excuses You know we just we just didn't do enough whatever it is. You look back on it. hindsight's twenty twenty right I mean we just the players played hard. we had a chance to win or tie the game at the at the end there the other day we scored the touchdown and been able to convert to point, but we didn't get it done. You know. So in the end, that's that's on a head coach and I totally understand that But looking back on it I I I don't I don't regret anything. We did in this especially this time period with what's going on with the. With the covert protocols that we had to follow on all the different things we have to do we just we just weren't able to to win games. Well welcome. In. Didn't make excuses but I've just heard of covid situation there. Listen I respect Villa Brian good human being. He'll be fine. It is the nature. There's he said he knew that this was possibly happen when he started on four I'm not sure Vikings win would mattered because eventually. I think he would have been the coach still he'd been this week. Long run right I'm not sure what mattered you're supposed to be. You're supposed to Birdie though so. I am. You know. Listen you always got thank Bill O'Brien for his efforts in he did a good job and he got him to the playoffs, but it wasn't enough and he's right. And, a super bowl is what you play for. and. He's out his head coach and we probably screamed on a mountaintop loud enough yesterday for everybody to hear I don't know if you know how around the city who else did but people been begging for this for a while and I listen. Brian good human being and what bothers me is when people take Bill O'Brien whose abrasive but take what he's done on the field and let it creep into. You know off the field it's not right and we shouldn't. But as a football coach, this had to happen this football team became complacent. Sorted He. And like I said, he doesn't make excuses Yeti said to calvin that had something to do with it. Well, you know what? It's not some other that's an excuse and and it's a unfortunately this day and aging in-depth part of managing what you gotTa do as head football coach and the Texans now take the next step now Romeo Cornell is interim head coach. It falls on not only him because I can tell you at the end of the year he's not going to be the head coach, right? They'll be in search of the problem is you're not GonNa get the head coach you want until the season's over so you've got to survive this go on. A major search and then the major searches. Okay. Not only for a head coach and general manager and the talk of the Jack Easter being and Bill O'Brien were at odds. It seems like a lot of people have been at odds with Bill Bryant and it may be Jack Easter beat that we got a problem with but I said yesterday gut this franchise now, gut it doesn't mean everybody but you gotTa make wholesale changes you do and that means players to in half asks you. If you guys are next players, you're next because you don't get to make the excuse this. Sunday. And they're what? EASIEST BET in the world is the easiest baton world right now. Is the Texans over Jacksonville this week They'll come out respond and they'll win a game and say see it was bill O'Brien's fall. I got news for you as much as I. This change had to happen should kind to happen. County finally grew up and stepped up and did something that I never thought. He'd do during the season that matter of fact I thought that four and twelve and he'd still. Be The head coach because he gained so much power after twenty, four, three loss through remember Aaron Wilson came on here and I asked him. Well is this going to affect Bill O'Brien. Future Goes Sean. He's going through an extension that's what he said and I'll be damned two days later, Bill? O'Brien did not only that he was he was named general manager you can't do both. I'm a bed count, McNair? Please do not hire guy who comes in here and gives you the ultimatum I want to be the head coach general manager. If he says that get him out of the interview radiantly escort him to the door and say you're not for us because you will not be successful given somebody that much power because the only dude you can pull that. Off Resides in New England, you ain't get him. That's one two is you gotta look long and hard and I spent a longtime stayed up late last night looking through this and Jack Easterby credentials and what he brings listen I'm telling you right now I'm staying away from the New England Patriots period I would love them to not be New England south. I'm tired of it listen Bella checks the best coach ever. His the people that leave bill for whatever reason whether it's a bill whether we realize bills got his hand in more than we can imagine because they're winning because he coaches linebackers wide receivers quarterback that he's that good and then he and he's got an eye for talent that the other guys leave him don't that doesn't mean Scott. He wasn't good but Scott wouldn't have been near as good without billy. He wasn't when he went to Kansas City. If you guys remember he wasn't as good and that Scott was very good with Bela check because belichick understands talent understand salary-cap understands it all, and then understands coach Andy said Tom Brady for twenty years and that helps. Do not do not do it I'm GonNa. Tell you name is I search through that I've been bringing up his name for a couple years now. The first thing this and I think that if this is I personally and I know this is going to sound harsh a try to be compassionate. I think once you get rid of the head coach I. Think you've got to flush the whole front office out. Yes I one. Want any lingering people. Because of Jackie's to be was that good. We wouldn't be having these problems and I. Don't Know Jack from atom other than Saturn on from number Steve or Mike Jack You'd sued I did there. But he and he may be good. But. What what what qualification does he had these job? Not only that it you know what message going to send. We still are hanging. We just don't quite can't cut it all on just what clear Houseman Jack Easterby will be fine if he's as good as. Bill O'Brien whoever thought he was and he'll land somewhere else. You've got to clean house and start fresh and you have to have a cleansing in the front office and I'm telling you players you better take notice while this is good and you're excited about change I got news for you. You're next if it doesn't change that that that Guillotine starts falling on a lot of people if got balls enough to do it. Sacred cows. There's only a couple on this team and even those guys there's one. And he plays quarterback. and Jj Watson about the next closest. But you know what? He started to get to that point in his career as much as I. Love Him the only as a player on the field he's not a sacred county more no no, and so that's the listen and you're all up man. You are all on notice if an organization has any guts at all. Let me tell you name that. I. That I been asking for for two years and I thought should've happened down the road. I believe in my heart. Knowing that competitive and no one, his insight football in his winning. and. Knowing. His preparation. And look at it this organization and saying we'll either he can work with this guy or you can move him out and start fresh. You want instant credibility. You want something to drive the guy's nuts down the road you want a guy who I believe this is just me after looking at this. Fresh credibility and gets. Why Not Troy Aikman? Are they AIKMAN's ready to leave the booth I do I think he's ready for the next step in his career and you say, well, let's go get somebody experience. Why? Why are we gotta get a New England retread? Why did we gotta get an assistant? GM. Somewhere else everywhere he's been he's been around winning. He's one in the booth. He's one as a player. He broke his leg and overcame adversity became the first pick of the draft trade and when he got what he transferred Oklahoma. And? Let. Me Ask anything PEYTON manning job. I do yes. He's a grinder and studies and I one thing about troy. You WanNa talk about a guy who will take no crap. But he's affable and friendly, but he I'm telling you all business. I remember playing golf with him years ago, and we were getting ready to play in a tournament and troy hated golf at the time. Hate it. He Goes Sean. I. Don't even WanNa play this game because he frustrating because he couldn't be great at it and so instead of quitting, you know what he did. Got Good. and. You know I flipped with golf and football I'm looking for a guy who brings instant credibility. Who is a no nonsense guy but people love. Who you see. Even his broadcast career he's gotten better people are going to say, well, did you talk to no I didn't talk to troy at all. This is my perception of an organization needs a fresh start, and even if it's not him somebody wipe it clean man start fresh and bring credibility and you get a Guy Not Texas you get a guy who would love to run a team I believe now I'm maybe I just want to broadcast get paid all that money, but I would I would make the phone call. Because, the credibility he brings. And I know how he was on the practice field I know how he is on his preparation I know how he's he grinds and he doesn't want to be the coach. I don't believe. And you say we'll. He's got a great gig. Let me tell you one thing I know about dudes like him. And peyton manning. They've been in the game. And that doesn't mean success but always good and always had his struggles. John Lynch is really good. It depends on who you are, but I'm looking for credibility on a fresh start. And I'm looking for somebody who understands this part of the country I hate to say it it's a different ekg when you when you live in or part of Texas and understand what they're trying to go Ryan didn't really know if it did not but I'll tell you who does the do down the road didn't highland park in. Dallas I. personally like I said, they may colony may say, no. But I personally believe that if you interview him at Beg, you to interview him. Because if you do I, think you're gonNA find a guy who's show buttoned up that people not only will love but also respect and quite frankly there'll be some fear. and. It's okay to to feel the general manager because when you call up to the office, it's not supposed to be a casual walk that this is a joke it's supposed to be. What's going on? Am I getting paid or am I? Am I losing my job? And for a guy who understands the structure of winning under what I think there's one of the best coaches of all time an underrated Jimmy Johnson. I'm just telling you that after looking at it last night. I think this front office needs a swipe clean I do completely clean and you know you also gotta look for somebody who's willing to take on the lack of assets we got and say that guy's not for us. This guy is we'll take this guy we'll take that guy and start to shift pieces around but not just shift them. Sometimes you gotTa, you gotta you gotta get. Rid of them. You've got to get rid of them and it's not just the front office. I'm telling you what players you're on call now buddy you're on notice. So the next step is and don't hire coach before you hire a general manager, find a general manager and you can find that guy immediately you can fight you don't have to wait. You can find that guy right away. Because they're out there. Then the next step is, let him do the three month or two months search for a head coach. Do it the right way. And do it with a guy who is not does not care about the feelings I mean you got care about people but is not in this he's in it to win. That's what's made ballot check so good. He does not care get to a point when you're done helping the team win guess what he does friends or no friends it's time to move on. And somebody who's looking for a challenge brings instant credibility and understands every phase of the game is what you need. And there's a couple of guys I have in mind. He was thinking about him because I remember when Dallas then came up and there were rumors that they talked him being in the front office and with the cowboys. And and I'll know if they WANNA be threatened by that but I'm telling you. I know guys grind and I may be speaking out of turn because I don't even he's got a great job but certain guys love certain challenges eighteen in Indianapolis. Number Eight in Dallas five he's everything he's touched turned to gold. I'm telling you you bring instant credibility and this franchise needs credibility and needs a pecking order and it got to be by one Dude Sarda Tie. sportstalk seven ninety much to talk about Josh will get to you and all our caller seven, one, three, two, one, two, five, seven, Ninety Astros. Win We will discuss obviously the bats awoke and they are alive and well after one game they hammered the Oakland A.'s and the talk in what's going on in this city, and you'll find out an eight just coaches that have a problem and assistant coaches are on watch because guess what most your jobs are going to be you're GONNA be out at the end of this year. So what are you GonNa do to build your resume just like a player Now Call Your Down I. Mean you're you're on watch now your own four. What's next? Most. Your jobs are going to you'RE GONNA be out at the end of this year. So what are you going to do to build your resume just like a player? Call you're you're you're on watch now you're own four. What's next? Bill O'Brien's out as the head coach had to happen and wish him. Well, there's another step hiring a general manager as soon as possible and the right one is that next step sports talk seven ninety. The Sean Selves Very Show continues. To go now you know. Sports talk seven ninety. M C sags myself guys I just. To me. You have to. LISTEN IF YOU'RE GONNA. Go here. You can't go half in right and that's that's a big Howard here. There's no way that you can have any faith that they're not going to have this thing and it's just like what was the first thing we saw after it happened our guy in report who join us tomorrow and he can get delve deeper into this and because he obviously talks to people but it was the stain of Jack. Easterby and then you Go to Nick Caserio who they had talked to after Easterby was here and then the Patriots candidate you know shot that down a little bit and then there's the guy that comes up in every single coach Guy who turned down sign agreed to be the colts. Head coach and then backed away and that's Josh mcdaniels and you said in the first segment stay away from the Patriots guys. Well, I mean we all know where Easterby was and we all know what's going on and also easterby was go from that point right? They Bill Bill Belichick fired him what they have to understand. Is it new. England's not the catch all the stop it when it comes to like I said, and if you tell on I'm gonNA. Tell you right now is is great a play callers he is. And I think he is. They they'll. They'll interview Josh mcdaniels touch him. He already back now I wouldn't do. It just screams too much saying does and with with Easter beat like I said I'm sure Jack Know Jack from like I said from from Jack. Okay. But for me, it's if you're going to clean it, don't don't be don't put one foot in the water and stick your tongue gets go in man dive in. You made a decision to get rid of a coach that's been detached some success but couldn't break through the ceiling. You brought that guy amid some controversy and talk in New England and the rest of it. What are you afraid of? I don't understand what you're afraid of. Well, we gotta have. No, you don't. You don't have to have somebody from the Patriots or somebody overseas hire a guide overseas and Clean House like smart teams do. And I'm but I'm afraid the fan base is going to say. Not that the fan base gets to dictate who runs the show and run and runs a front office and the head coach, but it's going to sake. Still more of the same. Jacket higher the head coach. What's HE GONNA do go go get a New England guy. I? Just. Listen. Hire a general manager. Clean. House in the front. Put players on notice. And let's go the core your team you build it and those guys who don't want to come along for the ride and grabbing orange start paddling. Get your ass out. Period. I know a lot of people like to bring their guys together. You know a lot of times we see a GM come in and then they end up bringing their guy maybe a year later. I mean to me why not go to the best place right now and say, let's we're going to take to say Mike Moore Ghanzi. In Kansas, city airbnb enemy you guys know each other you guys there together. You've developed best football team in the world right now. Come. Help us do that here. It's going to be a challenge. It's going to take a few years my my question with all those. Assistant GM. Who's learned right and that's fine. I mean he's credited. Scout so he knows players he d- he came up through that way. It's not some guy who's just an analytical guy who works as way down and he he went the hard way I need to. Understands personnel and. Scout Talent. Isn't afraid to to to. Empower other people and also isn't afraid to make some decisions and yeah. If you WANNA, go double down and do that to completely get it. Yeah. Interview Eric Be Enemy interview a few get a shortlist I don't need fourteen guys interview now because I hate to tell you this fourteen guys aren't worthy to be the head coach right now they're just not I. Still I think tweeted at during the game the other night if Joe Brady's not interviewed, you'd screwing up. What he's done with a bad panther's offense without Christian McCaffrey in two weeks. Has just been phenomenal that dude should be index Sean mcvay the bottom line is success doesn't lie, right? And everything he touches from. Sean Payton. Assistant. There to Joe Borough in a year and look what burroughs doing now and Berl doesn't have him anymore one one year with them. And now look what he's doing and taken over a Carolina team. That's got minimal players. So I. I mean whether it's world but get a general manager who has his shortlist and let in you cut him loose and let him go higher the head coach. Then you deal with the money if you're the owner but to me once you listen when you clean your house. You don't forget to mop one floor Amapa. Mall Man. And let like that doesn't mean that everybody in the organizations got to go. You may re interview somebody and say we want him. But every year you're looking at your roster every year, you should judge your front office the same way. They don't get a hall pass because they sit in the front office if their lack of success or coach get rid of him, and if the offensive of coach, the wide receiver coach didn't do it his job he got to go to. If he is keep him interview for the new one and tell the head coach. I'd like to keep this wide receiver coach, but you make a decision you're the head coach. Here's a suggestion, and it's only a suggestion because I'm empowering you to be the head coach your hand on stuff on the field but you don't get any personnel decisions final say we will work together. is a general manager, but you're going to coach football team because that's tough. Enough job, right? And I'll take care of the GM and then we'll answer right up to the owner if the owner doesn't want any part of the football stuff. Good higher good football guy. WHO also understands see it's not just salary cap I can find a smart mathematician works our cap I can they matter don't don't misunderstand they matter. But I needed a guy who understands talent who can evaluate pro tablet and college talent and how they fit with what I'm trying to get done and how that town fits with the head coach. Yes, and if it means a small search committee of people you want but don't you don't have to stay. there. Well, we gotTA keep one guy here from the Patriots well. No, you don't. You don't you don't. So find the GM and I will tell you right now find him quickly. Doing the hurry. Locate the guy you don't have to wait until January to find a general manager can now if they're under contract I mean that's up to that team. So Up to the team. You let him interview Right Ryan Ghanzi just for example. But why the Kansas City chiefs? Here's the way I look at it. It's like a head coach. Now, during the season, you ain't let me go the rules online you can. But if you're a front office guy and you're the GM, why wouldn't you? Allow your guy to interview. Even if they interview now and say we're not hiring till December or early January but allow a guy like that. WHO's not dizzy affecting the Sunday game who's doing now you scouting talent the rest of it and maybe they wanted to scout through. But at least live interview Rican still do his job like a bowl game coach. Still going to stay in coach, but he's going to take an NFL job. Let if he wants to the school wants them to coaching wants to finish up let him go to his job same gear I if I'm a GM, you know what I want my assistant to do eventually. Be a general manager yeah you hire grant. To do that yes. There's no question about it Josh what's going on? Man. Free at last free at last Alleluia Real. Labs. been waiting for this for a while. We'll you've got it man glad to see. Glad to see below Brian Gone. Glad the. Dominated not even just want dominated and they sure did that's three and Ellen fantasy football too big league for you. Congratulates Big Week. Big Week. We appreciate it. Thank you. Yeah Josh Good. Obviously. Three hundred fantasy bill is out and Astros win hammered the as which we will get to today LSD, follows at seven thirty. And and we get. Brian Bogus advocates seven. Talk Astros and football. We're GONNA go break. Comeback. And will. The big one little. Probably imagine focus on football and who to replace right but. It is incumbent upon we talk about this. Now listen you guys don't find out it ain't just the coach. While I needed to be done and we stood on a mountaintop. You can't give me moral victories and tell me guys play hard great. Everybody should play hard and that set I mean that was the end for me yesterday that that ended it for me yesterday and then we got great guys. Good. I need dogs. Ok. Dogs three hours a day on Sunday and practice like that. That's what I need on my football team and then be good guys when you walk away from the field dogs. So that set me off. That's got they've got to make that decision and get that done and get it done for and start moving forward. But I'm GonNa tell you what you folks want to bill out and you'll see it and you'll see a change in Jacksonville I got news for you though if you think it's just the head coach, you are mistakenly wrong. Because there are some players on this on this team that aren't dogs. But they're dogs you get my point. They don't play like the dogs we're talking about delivered to casual. Well. If they don't take notice guess what they'll be on the first out of town if the franchise is doing it the right way you clean house from guys that don't want to be a part of your tried about. To. Casual. Will if they don't take notice guess what they'll be on the first bus out of town if the franchise is doing it the right way you clean house from guys that don't want to be a part of something you're trying to make special.

Part pardon my. Stool Sports. Part of my take by the cash APP download right now use code barstool dollars for free ten dollars. ASPCA today is Wednesday October seventh. And the heater dead not dead yet. no H. E., A. D. E. A. D. it is. It's unseasonably cool. He's not dead yet. We could have another heat wave comeback think that. If they win the next game I, think might make it. To Game Six Day. gave it their all. They tried very, very hard valiant effort from Bam to come back from injury. There's no way that he's Not But they didn't count on the Lakers. Best Player, the referee TV is called Bo pulp okay and the rest as well. Yeah the rest of the whatever the Lakers get every call. You just gotTa. Know they also didn't count on on Mark Jackson breaking out the best call maybe in the history of sports. Not, all heroes. Where capes not? No that would have been great. Would he actually said was a hero? Isn't just a sandwich Oh. Nice much like that on us expect that. But yeah. I don't know man this is they heat. It's unfortunate because I'm not gonNA make excuses and said, this doesn't count as a final win for Lebron but you gotta think that if I played this game, they would probably win absolutely, I, mean we can all agree and not to mention Bam out there with one arm and it's fair to have Casey all of a sudden be good like that's not cool Also I think hitting his Dick like Dude we've seen your Dick. Over and over. Hang, they're no fans. They're no fans. It's October two. Cares it is October. Right so also Lebron's very rested having taken the the ten seconds off prematurely in the last game. Yes. Get a very load management what they call that and Lebron look here's where it's illegal to me the Brian you can't just start making your free throws. That was a joke we had we were going with you miss your free throws now you suck two free throws now he's also making them I feel robbed of some joy. They're also just one last spins on this game looking at the Lakers. Roster You had all the starters plus minus he was plus Seventeen Dwight Howard plus three Danny Green Plus Five Casey plus eight Lebron James. MINUS TWO WE'RE NOT Cherry picking that. That's an actual stat of the Lakers better without Lebron. That's what you're asking. I don't know if you put in Rondo instead of Lebron he's a plus eight. They probably win by one hundred either way it was a good game like the heat they tried good. Good job. Good. Job. Good effort. That's what Magic Johnson actually said. It was like last. Friday night he said like those those a solid performance by the heat in a loss. All right. Jake will give you thirty seconds to tell us how you feel about your heat. It's a big night for jake he had the heat diet the end he's got the the Yankees losing their pinstripes. It's bad night. Oh all of those that know Giancarlo Stanton hit a ball to the fucking moon guy when he hits home runs like him, he Aaron Judge when they get a hold of one. It's on inspiring. So there are two on new out in the top of the ninth right now as record this quickly jake, give us something about the heat. They are not dead yet. We're here we're going to hear from Chris Bosh and a little bit. He believes in the country. So he did say they were GONNA win game four they didn't. They did not. However, they're going to win the series in seven games. Now that would make me happier my darling Jake if there if Lebron blew a three one lead. That'd be something. We would never forget that Dan Forget. The most important playoffs the we'd all agree, right? Oh absolutely. Yes. All right. So Baseball we're going to do more NBA finals with Chris Bosh Sec. Baseball. In a plot twist it, I didn't see coming. I think as a podcast minus Jake. Because Jake plays the the the game. The right way we all came to an independent thought today legitimately like I I was down in Dallas. So I wasn't even here. Back, I had this conversation with someone earlier, and then I came back you guys revenues conversation. I think we're going to root for the Astros I'm one hundred percent rooting for the Astros they. Just, I. needed. that. Korea quote and I was like fuck these guys. But now they've won a couple and they're starting to hit Dinger's like they did George Springer had today I think to the other Monday. It would make so many people angry. Yes and so many. Yankee. Fans angry and so many dodger it would make so many people angry that I think we have to root for that and I I think they're cheating again, which is what I said. They should do when they got caught they should just do the exact same thing they did last year, right? Now is the time where nobody's going to expect them to be cheating the astros they learned their lesson they're afraid of get. Surely they won't install another buzzer system using vibrators between their butts cheeks when they step up to the plate. No, I think that they are cheating and I'm all for I. Hope that his Yankees Astros and I hope they beat the Yankees. And then I hope they play against the dodgers. At that point I'm not sure if I'm going to root for the Astros or the dodgers. Probably refer Yasser's Yeah I. It's one of those ones where I in theory it's funny. Here's where I want. Here's where all in on this I want the Astros to get to the world series I do not want them to win because then you've got to think about the other side of this this fence here soon as we get the other side, then Astros fans are going to be insufferable and be like, yeah. Well, we deserve it were the best we didn't even need. To cheat this time, we can't have that well so I want them to bother everyone and then ultimately lose. So then we can shit on them again that is the perfect arc I agree with that. The only thing I disagree with is the crown that I'll get to wear as a nets fan if we're the team that disrupted the astros dinosaurs. Yeah. If we are the to isn't I guess. They would've won yet. They wanted threes. Bobby in a row. Yeah I wouldn't yeah. We we stop them from becoming the team of the decade I I just I I don't want them to win I don't want to win the world series I want them to beat the Yankees and then I want them to like Kershaw to like throw a perfect game against does the commissioner hand them the trophy I want slim diego to win yes lamb Diego be fun. Is there are ceremony where the Commissioner has to hand that trophy to the Astros probably that would be very, very funny. Yeah. I know he awards them with an extra. Next yet at listen. The Astros are pissing people off and I liked it. But yeah, I don't want them to go all the way because 'cause you know astro fence and you know what the worst part is. Astros. Fans are also James Harden fans not only analytics fan not all a nerd ball they're no, they're not only. Had their one. Let it let they had their one. And also you the one that you can then always argue was tainted. Will then be tainted. You're right. They won't have. We'll do. They won't have a legitimate any taint yet. No. I'm saying like if they win an extra without cheating. Yes. Taking clay. into real yes. No I don't WANNA I don't want that I'm I'm still up in the air if it slammed Yego I'm root for them. Yup. If it's the dodgers are you telling me that you're not gonNA root for an epic Clayton Kershaw meltdown in the playoffs now and he's at the end man i. just at some point you kick you kick a guy so much just WanNa see him get back up or everyone loves a redemption story you know what I mean like yeah at the end at the end Astros yeah you. Know at the very end, you do want. You know like Tiger winning the masters like you want Bridge I. Yeah. I mean that one I don't care about but we sure Warning, Stanley Cup after. They were. Virginia's Good Virginia's a good good call Yeah do you want that's what America does Patriots after deflategate gate. Yeah. Okay. That's what America does though we beat people down. Then we lift them back up and then when they get to good again, we beat them back down again Marion Berry. Yeah, perfect. Yeah. Exactly. All right. Let's woody laugh about like. We say. I'm not I'm saying, Hey, sit Oscar stories. Oh, I thought you were going to say. I wasn't going to shuttle. For. The nationals. Back. Knocking. Knocking to say that back and better than ever. Yeah. Okay. Let's recap some Monday night football. Oh, should we I talk about our friend? Bill Brian Losing two jobs on Monday three jobs, three jobs coronavirus. Announced that he lost off corner. That's true. They said that they fired GM and head coach Bill O'Brien but he sits at the very least bill. O'Brien left some things behind in the office that he can come back and Colette gradually over the course next four weeks Oh, one more thing Romeo you might want to add this into the game. It would be hilarious if they were JJ if they're doing zoom installs and he was just popping in gem crashing change the passwords they did the thing where they let him talk to the press I like that's like a new. Ron. Rivera, they did that with him when he left the Carolina Panthers Yup Bill Brian. I think it's just like if you've been with the team for longer than it's like if you took over the team when they really stunk and then you got them to the playoffs at least once right and stayed there for five years they let you say goodbye the famous Ron Rivera when he said we won the. NFC South three years in a row and failed to mention that one of those years I think they went seven eight and one they won the innovate one, the NFC south but bill Bryant has been fired you have to think that if he had just. done the play calling move like two weeks earlier he might have been able to save this job I also think hers I. I can't remember who said it but someone who was like I think he might have done. I. Think he might have been calling the plays like two weeks ago but waited to announce it till the Vikings game. So he could take credit against a bad defense. Yeah. So he was waiting and then if they had like pulled off an upset against the steelers who've been. Calling. The place me instead he did it with the Vikings game to publicly come out and be like, Hey, guess, what guys the schedules about to get softer I'm what Sir calling the plays we're going to start winning football games. He forgot the winning football games part, and now we're back to my favorite story line in the world Shawn Watson to serve. Deserves better. Think it's bad. Do you think he's going to come back? Do you think that Yonder Hopkins GonNa come back to the Sean that would be funny. Just hate hundred. Now. That this is over I can come back. Yeah. This this junkyard cal shanna pitched cliff Kingsbury Abdominal. So we are we are back to the whole notion of Sean deserves better. But my other favorite story line is interim head coaches and Romeo. Cornell is technically their interim head coach does he doesn't he doesn't do it for me moved and has interim head coach title you want your. Interim. Head coach is actually like the five year anniversary of Tony Soprano bearing the football today when he was the raiders interim head coach and you want your your interim guide to come in light spark Romeo there's nothing about Romeo that scream spark i. think he's the oldest head coach in the NFL right now his his motivational trick is like okay everybody has to get a library card I'm GonNa. Tell me what read at the start of next meeting. Have some naptime. You're right. Though the interim head coach is the best case scenario is the guys love him so much that he becomes the head coach Freddie Kitchens. Yeah. He wasn't interim head coach but you know what I mean like the guys you know Cape Form so much that they're like you gotTa, make him head coach and that always fails but Yeah. You want a Dan Campbell play metallica dressing the dolphins and all. Black. No show in at USC and Lsu was legendary who then he became the Lsu had coached. That's what you aspire for Romeo Canal. They're just playing out the string and it's early to play out the string. Yes. You want. You want your interim head coach to be the substitute teacher that has an open carry license. Romeo Cornell is the substitute that comes in and just like falls asleep at the desk. Yeah and Every now and then wakes up and yells at someone like you better stop fucking around back there, and then falls back Romeo was gonNA wheel end the TV cart that we also back in elementary school put on Bill Nye the science guy and fall asleep when he turns the lights. Kids going to steal the remote and turn off the TV in Romeo's GONNA lose it. Out What's going? So algae's not his strong suit were you gonNA say j not only the oldest head coach right now the NFL research the oldest person to coach game in his three of the NFL at seventy-three. This bill parcells still got one more run at him. What do you think about we think about Jeff Fisher? Irene Jeff Fisher Houston have him move the team to Tennessee and then move the team to la I liked that I like the Los Angeles Texans too bad for Bill Brian missed that Chin he's going to go somewhere another notch on Bill Bell Checks I'll let you free and then you can fuck up a franchise belt. Yes. This was actually his his masterpiece. Yeah. It was like they got a great quarterback they have probably the best wide receiver in the NFL Bill I need you to trade away Sean what I need you straightaway deandre. Hopkins to the NFC form Yes ruin it. So that was the bill Brian. News. We had Monday night football double Monday night football, which was very confused by the way Hey. It just it just dawned on me right now this time he makes no sense to fire Bill O'Brien no makes absolutely no sense because you're going to let him trade away your franchise's best player. Then you're gonNA, give him four games, and then fire him after the way we you're under the assumption that the Texans are like a franchise. It does smart. Think that's true I'm just so in my mind, it makes perfect sense. This is exactly what a dumb franchise would do. Let their coach become their GM in a power struggle. Have Him. Everything and then firearm four games in the season. That's true. That's that's exactly. Right Patriots of the seahawks talking about the Houston Texans the other makes I think I realized. Also, it's pissing me off about this is that it's thrown off the whole timetable of when we expect bad coaches to be fired. It's so early people are saying like Dan Quinn after that loss, he's going to get fired before he gets on the plane no, no, no, no, no these these firings happened either in the bye week or like week ten at the after Thanksgiving. I did. I saw a tweet today about Dan Quinn and it was a report from about Falcons beat reporter and he said. According to my sources, Dan Quinn is not expected to be fired today. Okay. That's when you know you're in trouble. Yeah. When they're now reporting on days, you don't get fire he's doing the keycard update. Thank quin access the Atlanta Falcons. Nothing about tomorrow put today Tuesday Dan Quinn, kept his job if I may I, think that Dan Quinn will be just fine. He said after the game and I'm paraphrasing here probably no one's more upset than I. Am I'm GonNa take a long look in the mirror it's start and it ends with me Oh there. Go I'm in full evaluation process from the top down and we're looking forward to get this thing turned around because we've got a great team they deserve better the fans deserve better. So it starts me again I'm looking into the mirror and you know what? The Falcons They'RE GONNA probably I'M GONNA look up their schedule real quick but they're probably going to play for Dan Quinn shop the I'll say something nice about the Falcons they were trying on Monday night football they weren't dead football team now Matt Ryan. I he's starting to see ghosts. He's starting to see ghost he's starting to there's a couple of plays you're like, what is he looking at, but they still have all those first rounders. All right. So the Falcons play the panthers, the Vikings the Lions the panthers, the broncos. Okay. They could start they could. Look if you want to talk about schedule talked they they they started the season gets the seahawks which some may say is you know the second third best team in the league they lost in that crazy game against cowboys. He lost that crease games against the bears, three bears, and then they played against the packers who saw may sayers the top three team in the league. So you want to let schedule fuck to alkaser up there fort. I think, might I think tank when my keep his job I think he might rattle off enough wins to get to eight, nine eight and keep God damn job. That's I mean the the next five games that you just mentioned right there they seem all winnable could go to go well. What's my one? What's what's one of my three things? Emma do this year respect teddy bridgewater more. Off Going to beat the panthers okay but Vikings Lions. Panthers twice and Broncos that that feels like the we could be sitting here halfway through the season and he'd be like the Falcons are three and five, and they're heating up there on a roll. Yeah. I think I think Dan. Quinn maybe maybe spend less time looking in the mirror more time looking at opponents running backs into flat dow would work. That would be nice if they could guard a running back who's very obviously about to catch a pass and scoot for a four yard I. Yes, I'm also so that game. I mean era just decided. He's going to be an MVP again I'm so fucking. Sick of this shit too hard counts back hard counts bad. He's messing with people. He's getting cocky with it his heart count this week he said hard count instead of hike. Yeah. Because he knows everyone's listening are you? Threat to cocoa. FROG. Billy's territory be deep throat and toads. Good, UK? Yes. Good finish. Yes. but yeah. YEA ribbit Aaron Rodgers second people out with the hard count and this fucking Tanya Guy Get outta here man they don't packers don't don't do this packers the packers are, and I know it's because Aaron Rodgers not the receivers but they are the number one team of let's just throw random dues out there and they'll just ball out. Well, it was funny 'cause Aaron Rodgers laughing and people were like wisey laughing so much 'cause he's it's a big joke. To him that he's able to complete touchdown passes to his tight end. Yes. He never has a good tight that game also, there's nothing more demoralizing than I've never seen an over killer quite like that sequence of events where the packers got stopped fourth and go on the one, and then the Falcons, went on a ten minute twenty play field drive and it was a ninety four yard drive suck. The life out of that was tough. It really is over I also had the over on that one. So the other game, the the chiefs Patriots This was like a glimpse into an alternate reality of what would happen if bill check didn't have a quarterback because Holy Shit Brian Hoyer there was a Yobbo for the raise their Brian Hoyer. I'll say some nice things about Brian Hoyer. He's not afraid to stay in the pocket even while he's getting sat and there's a Russian front of him and he And he has no timeouts. He he's fearless. He is cool under pressure internal clock. It just never expires. He does not see ghosts no. No He sees the player in front of him sacking him. Yes, and he's still like. Bruce Willis at the start of the sixth sense. Yeah. The first five minutes. So that game Hank. Like it was the pitch that was a winnable game today if we ever get an explanation on the Patrick. mahomes turnover was it bella check was complaining and missed it because no, the the report, the REF reported whatever came out today and they said that they call them down because he was getting sat. There wasn't a whistle. Ran Credit to Dave Tobe. CLINT CHALLENGE IT Oh. Okay. couldn't challenges so Dave told though. Like the best special teams coach in the League he he he used to coach the bears when they had hester in that run but I've never seen a punt get off faster that thing you blink to that point and Bella check was like out on the field took off both of his masks. About that when he was pissed off I, I don't blame them for being mad. But I will say stick them has a great hand off his hand look. Off The eyeball test, he passed it quarterback controversy New England I'm instead of it's one of those things where it's like you can't really judge guy until at least start a few games like it's if you're not if you're coming in as the backup, it's not it's not really a fair sample size. We also I I know I ranted about this last week when Matthew Berry tweeted the thirty one teams passed on Cam Newton which was crazy to say but this like the Patriots were thinking about starting Jarret Stidham over Cam Newton? Earn Austin Radio. No they weren't bill. Belichick was playing mind games with everyone. That was primetime corona when there was no sports going on and there was nothing to talk about. But that also is that's a credit to Bella check in the coaching job that he's done in his entire career where the fastest way for a guy to get hype is for Belch draft you in the late rounds as a quarterback. Well, so I think Ryan Mallett Yeah Matt Cassel like you just name all these guys who Brian, Hoyer you can name any guy who he drafts and. What did he see that we didn't see I know they probably just thing I think Brian Florez was a coach that before the seasons are wouldn't even acknowledge that came was gonna be the starting quarterback. He was like I. Think they're going to have an open competition. Those other guys are pretty good. That's another classic. That's a check telling former disciple right what to say to the media gas right to Kobe. Yeah. Great, the greatest you make Garoppolo greatest job you can have in all sports is to be like a fifth rounder that gets drafted by Bill Belch, 'cause smart by him he always like he feels like he takes quarterback every other year which smart organizations do that but he instantly gets bumped up to like a second rounder just by the happens all the time with traits to Belgium does trade everyone's like well, that washed gotta be something. In everyone's head. Yeah and so like Mohamed Sanu. They picked him up last year. Like what a class should fine. I think Mohamed News been cut by two teams. Yeah everyone thinks automatically you go there. There's something about you like bill was going to get a job soon. Or is he is he on the giants on the China? The John Birch? Run. RUN RUN SPLINT yeah sprints with Joe Judge. My only concern about cam is that they're doing all the contact tracing and testing of the Patriots. Zero other New England patriots besides Cam have tested positive not true. One One did today sorry Bill Squad you Bill Murray squash everywhere. Hilarious. No starters nobody on the offense has test positive. Is that indictment on Cam Newton's leadership? Ooh, because you know that Tom Brady had corona. When he was in New England Julian Ataman would be the one driving him around outside the hospital without a mask on waving to his fans Julian would be like we get. He would test positive within thirty seconds of Tom Brady testing. I'd love to see what concoction outgrow would come up with to to cure corona Tom Britos water. Like we drank it out here kid eat this nickel. have. Some cabbage some hose water yeah. I'M GONNA. I'M GONNA make a broth- out of loose change my pockets and we're going to add in some eye of Newt and we're GONNA I'm GonNa give you a deep tissue massage your throat I'm GonNa need every tomato in New England. State of New York Ito's within three states of Alagoas proud. Squirrel has definitely like pulled Tom Brady aside during the pandemic been like, Hey man. I'm willing to you I and I'm here to do a job for you. But if they call upon me to to find a vaccine for this coronavirus, I got one like he's like I'm not listen I'm not gonNA put my hand up. But if they asked me, I could fix this thing is drink a lot of water. Yeah. Need to double your wash talks. Positive thoughts and what we're, we're a copper undershirt to bed and then sleep with this crystal underneath pillow. Man All right. So that was one night football the double money for also I love the two planes that the Patriots to this is the sick planes the death point yeah. This Spirit Airlines and this is the real jet blue I have to admit something I. In a moment that like I'm having more and more dad moments but when the kickoff started eight fifty I audibly said this is too late for me Oh really yeah. I don't know what those thirty minutes did but I was like I watched the whole game. But I still said I was like Jesus Christ it's fucking late. Because the Patriots game had started and ended in Oh, this is seven o'clock right over thirty like this is awesome it was Just it was I mean it's every father. In America, any any game that starts past eight o'clock like no. Dad Dad strength expires when the sun goes down. Maybe. Wake up in the fourth quarter on the couch and be like what happened. Okay. Got It. I do think it was it was a good game for the chiefs to win ugly. They proved that they can win a game that where they don't look like they're almost unstoppable. Are, now too is that you that you can stop him for a quarter or two, but they're just gonNA figure out a way it same thing happened with the chargers game charged a great game. We sat there watching it being like well I mean seventy or touchdowns going to happen at some point but you always have that in their back sleeve I obviously the pick six was You know a bigger deal to make it like a bigger of a blowout but it just it feels like the chiefs are always just waiting waiting waiting to pounce. Yeah I'm just I'm glad that Andy Reid seems to have made it out. Okay that was my initial concern when the Patriots tested positive when Cam Newton tested positive, we can't have any reach of coach that game from inside one of those big bubble balls. The hamster balls are like the atmosphere from American gladiators we can't have anything get to go and hit other people with it. I. Love. I love when people get knocked out twenty s been been bad enough. We lost even hail in today we cannot. can't lose Andy Reid. Covert bobbies. Got It. We lost John Crime. We've gotTA keep Bobby Lot lost to shuttle Tommy lasorda just fucking motorin on just reuven ages. Dot On. Bill Tommy Tommy LASORDA. Probably, he probably has antibodies from the Spanish flu in one thousand, nine hundred and would punch corona face into a fight with it. He would. He would. He would. He would.

Some day my Chicago Skyer GonNa Make It. Did Actually I. went to it. I people forget I went to a Wnba finals game by myself. No content and someone took a picture me because I had three empty seats next to me and said, sitting with all your friends and it hurt my feelings but I also had a great time but they lost to just season ticket holder to did anybody journal tweet of like this this fat person had to buy three six. One fact I was the person who screen shot at that one got during trouble. I, love that. Thank you for your service. Yes. Appreciate it. yes. Someone whoever tweeted that at the be whoever actually took that picture tweet that out and I'll read it again it's a very funny picture me sitting with no one. My hotseat is Jerry Que-. I think I pronounce that Right Billy I say that right? I've known Jerry Koi it's on your seat. It's. no, it's the mascot for Arsenal. Oh Yeah. They dismissed they sat excuse me it's England they sacked their long-serving Mascot. Same Day, they spent millions. Well, he's dinosaur. So maybe getting rid of the animal or the guy in on the same day that they paid a fee of forty, five, million quid at. So that's a lot of quid for Athletico's Madrid's Thomas. Party and that was talking soccer the sacked the person who portrayed slow Mascot Gunnar source to that I like going to source right? That is a bad they overpaid overpaid garner sort. It's classic Athletico Madrid So, governor source lost job. He'd been in the role since nineteen, ninety three. Very depressing dude this is a great name and the transfer window in soccer is actually awesome like really. Go in the transport. Yes. They should do that for every sport though because you basically have one day where I mean obviously it's it's like a trade deadline put just by himself. I mean, how fun would it be if in a football season you could loan out a player like to Shawn Watson Right now. Start one in six a team could be like all right. We'll pay to Shawn Watson will pay the Texans sixty million dollars for Shawn. Watson for the rest of the year. Yeah, I mean. Back. Yeah you can. You can do that. So this guy has a contract with LICO, but Danny goes sometimes you. On Loan I also might have made some of this. So Jerry, I think I feel like the Knicks loan thing but immediately. Gets the transfer and then he just stays their. Own but he can also go on and come back. You can just like an. Yeah he's like Gutter source could have a hall pass where he's like, you know what I'll go. I'll go mascot for the Astros. Yeah. It would be sick though if we just had the, you can just pay whatever you want for a player that'd be sick gutter source open invite the football team needs a mascot. Changed the bullets we're. Not GonNa get. Guns source yeah but. The nickname of defense we're going to go back gunner source no the they're the gunners. Yes. I'm where Arsenal. Goners I know I don't know if you knew he pl like, oh I know arsenal. Name one of their players. Terry Anri Boom Jer Jerudong all Oliver Giroud. I'll name one Thomas Party. Thomas, from he used to play Athletico Madrid Dinnie. Last year. Trade got transferred odor. Yeah. A lot of money. So yeah, I guess we're both arsenal honks over here arsenal socks. That's all I know. Cool thrown is Mike. Tomlin's thesaurus. Yeah. So Mike Tomlin give press conference as the asked him. What was different about this weekend? How did your team spend the time when they had an unexpected by week? His answer was we took a weekend to observe competition on a global perspective. which it sounds like somebody making up a fake job experience for the resume like it really embellishing what they did to sound smart. We are guys we watch the red zone we watched we watched football for two days on television but really when you get down to what we did was we observed competition yeah. On a global person we watch all the games he also said the eagles don't have a bunch of injuries they have a lack of availability at the wide receiver position I. Love His the source. Ben Doesn't have a porn addiction. He's he's just an enthusiast when it comes to observing Gash, he's an internet enthusiasts. Yes. Web MD, he's not he's not a porn addict who's also hypochondriac he just loves observing and and notifying gashes in their native environ private mode That's always yes. Incognito specialist my hot seats is twitter so. Unfortunately you all probably thought to yourself twitter is our one place that we can escape from this world from politics. Yeah. From all that stuff. Feels like just yesterday politics well, unfortunately that no longer. The case because Keith Olbermann has left ESPN and he is starting a political show for the presidential race. You actually made a he did a periscope and he said, did you think I was GonNa sit out this election season and I have to constantly say I did not think for one second where's where's Keith Olbermann pen? He hasn't been tweeden serve resigned yen. Yeah. I know but I didn't. I wasn't like men is Keith Olbermann sitting out this this political. Season maybe not allowed to tweet whatever no I know that is what I'm saying is like no point was I missing, Keith Olbermann tweeting about politics. I'm really interested he the World Mitch side he's going to take like cutting at ESPN. We don't know Keith Olbermann just been building up these tastes room He's do like a gender reveal for WHO's going to be voting for it was. It was very he told me being like you know what twitter like you probably were wondering who will tell the truth who will talk about politics? Well, me Heath Olbermann I'm here to do it. What's what's GONNA be called? My guess is the key Keith Olbermann show starring Keith Olbermann it's Keith Olbermann Youtube I think he said the though I think you said this presidential election is for the worst person on earth or something I? Think that's might be what he calls it. Okay. I don't know. I'm already ounce I'm done with. Like the best Keith Olbermann is when he is just only tweeting sir resigned know what follow him for his politics didn't follow him because every fucking day. He tweets some some like sad dog that needs to be adopted Sarah Mclaughlin commercial all the time even worse than that because he'll be like this dog is going to be executed in in the next minute I.

Everyone should go listen to it. This is exciting. So what is this all the song is about Kobe and it's a tribute to Kobe correct pretty much I mean you know capture music come to find out his? Very, challenging thing and. Working. With the artists than you really befriend the people that you work with or get in a good working situation with guys and. You know you just Kinda you have to kind of ride the wave and obviously being being a basketball player. You know that is spires a lot of a lot of the writing, and at the same time is just how we were feeling especially with you know. Everything happened so fast nobody really thought they were going to be in the finals and. We were just so inspired. We just made something in You know I was able to call on the context of make some things happen. It's it's a very intricate business, but I'm learning more day by day and Appreciate you guys for the shoutout yes? Yes. What's up man? What's that like? What's the process like when you're writing a song or are helping to produce you sit down at a piano do you help them? What's your? What's your bargain? I'm not that Nice. I I pretty much started getting to know riders. If at first you start out by yourself, you know and It's a very kind of lonely lonely beginning, but you have to learn how to. Put things together and you learn what you learn in eventually hopefully, you run into somebody WHO's a writer? Or a performer whatever it is and You notice that. Okay. My music is cool but there's no words on it. I can't sing. I'm not one of those guys. I. Need Somebody to single in it or rap wanted or whatever it is and you get to that point and then it's just you know really honing in on end getting better and better at asked a life. For me it was like having like a lot of beats you know that's pretty much started that became like my basketball. You see what I'm saying. So instead of like you know getting up in the morning and in shooting the thousand jumpers our. Now make up the as and bs what I'm saying like whatever the equivalent is. Yeah and you know teaming up with guys this particular guy He's is an artist I've been working with the past couple of years and you know he's very talented, very great writer artist and you know we just make some stuff, play some music vibe out and just record and hope that is something will happen. So you mentioned. At the start there, the no one expected the heat to be in the finals Thankfully, they won on Sunday night so that we're going to run this on Wednesday. So there still is going to be a finals when we're there will be a game five. Game Five. Sooner officially, you're rooting for the heat, not Lebron right well to be honest with you. I. Have Very close friends on both sides Lebron and not Eric's bolster you know. So if you can believe that so. You have to come to a point sometimes to where you just let the guys play and you stay out of it. You just WANNA. See guys represent themselves. Well, you WANNA see guys play well and whoever wins wins but I got guys on both sides looking for their first rain like very close France. I love. I. Love It. So SPOELSTRA? I I don't know if he's underrated anymore because everyone I think is given him the respect he deserves. What is it about him as a coach that he's able to get you know the heat did people expect to heat to be in the finals and especially in the winter game finals? What is it about his system coaching? The culture that has has them in the finals and has him in the discussion of top three coach in the NBA, I think most of all is consistency. That's what you want to see the most most coaches. Really. You want them to be consistent. He always has a message as far as the the things he wants to implement no xs and Os has its own place. In the game as far as coaching is concerned and he's gotten better at that always having solid staff he's always surrounded with gray guys around like. David Fidel. Juwan Howard. By Man DC Chris Quinn a monk starters. and he just a team I guy and just he's always trying to get better. So he's really not worried about. What the situation is. What things call for what he's coming to work the next day and it's all about what can we do today to get better? He always likes to say one percent better. Oh, my goodness man he he's. He's a true believer in that and and I think when you do that you just kind of stack your chips up and look back and see what you have. He's one of those guys he doesn't really worry too much about. What tomorrow brings with yesterday was he's worried about right now and I think that's give him quite a bit of success. Yeah. It looked like the game plan early, some big part of it in this most recent game was attack Anthony Davis tried to get him in foul trouble early because the Lakers played different wind, he's got three thousand the first half and he has to play different ask play more conservatively for you. I'm sure that there are probably some instances in your career where you knew that the game plan was to go out, you try to get you in trouble early. How do you continue to play like good physical defense with the understanding that these guys are doing everything they can to jump into me to make me leave my feet early make mistakes. So they compete with cheaper Nami I think he just comes in with. Learning not to play you know play your game and I know Anthony He's probably. Since getting to to La you know I can relate as far as like having to take it to another level and finding out what those. Western Conference finals, levels are or the finals levels are you know just? That difference I think most importantly like you just have to, you just have to know time score in your situation as a player. So Hey, if there if they have a loose whistle, which means they're not calling too many files, you can be aggressive be aggressive but the miniature pick up one you might WanNa. Play a little loose if they're if they're calling tight, you know you have to recognize those things in a gesture game accordingly pretty much on the fly which he'll do. But look is hard to win games seven man I mean not not games, of course. Is Hard to win game three of your up to. Not, nine making any chooses or anything, but give credit the heat for how they came out swinging. Their back against the wall they don't WanNa go home. Everybody's telling them. They can't do something you know come on we know the human nature you tell somebody they can do something until my four year old you can do something is going to walk his but right in there and do it you know. That's just that's just human nature in and people have to understand how hard it is to win a championship. Yeah. No, that's true. The the hunger dogs run faster kind of motto of you know t the team that kind of wants it more in that given night so bad one last question about the coaching staff. I always love when players can point to one particular instance or game where Maybe Spoelstra or the coaching staff implemented a game plan like in one of the heat runs, you had it to two championships where you're like oh man. Out this team and they put us in a spot like we knew they were going to do this and we were ready for it. was there ever a moment that you had that where you went into a game and what they told you was going to happen happen exactly that way and you're able to execute win. Man Yes I think more one abroad nothing particular with that one particular play happen bright but it was more so situations to where we wanted to get to so. In particular. One of the main things that we used a against the spurs was putting Lebron off the ball, but you know weekday kept running I forgot which particular play it was. It was strong pretty much too high screen enroll. We would switched that with the four-man and Lebron would end up on Tony. Figuring out those chests visas to get the last. Like eight seconds or five seconds of the shot clock matchup that you want that's best what they're really good at NS. What we didn't think you saw a lot of it last series with Lebron Jamal Mercury. Yeah you know. So just small things like that to where we could get the match that we want late in the clock because in. This particular series when we were planned San Antonio, that's where you we will get burned for three is that is four seconds in some some how they make eighteen passes to open three. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. No, it's true that we know those spurs teams that was they would always try to. They would always find the the open guy in that in that. Particular Seem in my dreams. Yeah. How many more years do you think that you has? Has Them COMPLA-? Based on what you've seen physically. Physically is not even about physically if if he wants to do I worked out with this, do you know a few times I was always one of our things and he works hard I mean he's one. He's going to be one of those guys where he's always going to be doing his off season full season workout as how hard he works. You know just a habit for him. It's not even. It's not even something like the old guy getting off his boat you know trying to go out there now he's out there in the heat in the warehouse big Fan in the corner that doesn't do anything but is blowing hot just hot air and he's lifting and getting it in. I've I've taken part in at and I've seen what he does. So he can play the game for as long as he wants to as much as he brings really as a voice in that locker room I mean I is pretty much been grandfathered in what? His potential is and what he could possibly do in the future. Yeah. Saw before game to Spoelstra said, he almost he almost started has long because has them a big speech in the locker room the fire everybody up that would have been great lumine there for like two minutes. Set the tone. Show. Yes. That's laws. Nobody does that anymore man those are small things and you know it, it's funny. You said that I was looking on and I'm like man that's one of those situations where you love to have you D- as a team made but then you hate it because he's going to be talking to you own right right. We we had plenty of those moms and we used to feed off of each other on that when. We have so many battles in practice beating each other up. To that point where and if you look at Game One and game two, you know you can you know you saw a lot of slouching body language you can tell the he kind of Philip sorry for themselves a little bit because you know everybody's hurt you eventually have to get over that and I know I pretty much can can think in my head when he probably said. Yes I love it. And of And of game three, some people are saying Lebron walking off the court with ten seconds less was Bush. League made it all about Lebron trying to up stage Jimmy's unbelievable performance which I think statistically was I saw a stat where it was like the second highest rated NBA Finals Performance since they started tracking that stuff in like the mid eighty s So yeah. But some people are saying the Bronx House Bush League not us but some people are saying that, what would you say to that? Is One game whether he's supposed to say and say man Jimi played a great game and you know give them a sports tap and give them a towel and give them some gatorade and punch to. Okay the game it wasn't like the gang was over if he wants to walk off the floor then that's his choice. I mean, it's not that big of a deal some. was that said I understand yeah. I understand how the finals enough I heard some people saying well, he was in the game which on that part you know it is what it is but let me tell you something if Lebron was to walk off the court then who's GonNa Stop? In and I understand that but I've been very mad at at after a loss and I off the court with time left. So you know. I'm sure that he really did not expect to lose that game and to play. So if You know if he didn't have, we usually don't see a more golf with he doesn't have six turnovers I. think that was that was the main thing they didn't play up to their potentially. In it is what it is, you walk off and you made a choice I don't think it's that big of a deal. Are you shocked at all Lebron? Just keeps like he's thirty five now going to be thirty six in December and he's when he wants to be. He just dominates everyone I think he does the thing now where Lebron paces himself well and. You can tell that he'll take a quarter or two where he won't be going to the basket nonstop because he's saving that energy, which is very smart shabby. But are you shocked at this is still happening like this late into his career and how many years in miles he's racked up? Yes and no I mean for one with the with the you know with. To regard the two years of retirement but. Our Heroes Mj. Right. He was thirty six to a plan on the biggest stage like when he hit that shot, he was still the man in the League you know so I think every person. That came into the League after that I would assume if you're especially if you're deemed the Chosen One, you have pretty much the the your eyeball and exactly what's possible in in in you have to put in the work. That's one of the thing things that Braun does. He's he's done his research. He's found that thing and he puts in the work daily so. To see him still playing a high level no I wish I was still planted at the level at a high level NBA at my age right now you know that's how I. Saw Myself. It just didn't happen for me. Yeah. But to see him actually deliver with it. Is Incredible. But with that said, he has I mean since we were always so disturbing telling a lie later. In we're in our early twenties he was stretching twice a day. He had the habits and the foresight back. Then I wasn't stretching bro I was eating McDonalds I was enrollment islands was eating McDonalds you know whenever I wanted I didn't stretch I didn't take those those precautions with my body which it wasn't. It wasn't a thing back then yeah. Also he was on in back then and I mean, this is pretty much I. think we're just now getting into the meat of his second prime really if you WANNA call it that because I only say that I guess he took a year off from you know compete in the finals now he's back. All right. So you know. So when he does become a free agent, where would where would you like to see? Laurent go maybe go maybe goes to Boston closes out his. Anger the Celtics. Maybe to new. York, how much how many how many years you've got one more year after this year? He's always a free agent just like we're always every summer we're going to be like, where's Lebron going? Yeah. I think I think that's definitely by design and at the same time I think, yeah, I, mean you know. If guys would have thought about that back in the day over the rules would have been like that where you can be just like Oh man I got a couple of championships. I think I play here because there is a good team I mean, you know that's kind of a that's kind of tough to pass up which said that you can live event but no, the Lakers seemed to be very serious about having the run. So I mean, it's really really tough to see him kind of. leave that on the table and go do something else. But with that said. You know you never know year in two years from now totally different situation if you were starting a new new team, if you were a general manager and you had the option, let's just say like for the next for the next six years who would you want on your team at the age that they are now Lebron James or Jimmy Butler. Howell even on Jimmy. In Brown. is nothing is nothing against Jimmy but yeah, take Brian. I was kind of joking just he has another gear in his career. I feel just my philosophy I. Guess I was watching Jason Kidd on their bench one day I'm like Damn Jason Kidd Magic Johnson would've he evolved his game in befitting that type of style where he's averaging like sixteen seventeen, eighteen points a game in Tennessee's you know he can still do that and be an MVP candidate right? You know. He can I still feel he can do that and still control the game because essentially he'd be going three point line three point line and you just you know. But look with that said I'm sure he's thought about those things and you know as the game progresses he he's going to continue to progress his game and we'll see how long he goes for well, and he also has an Alpha dog now with Anthony Davis I mean it's Kinda Anthony Davis team right. His team. Let me tell you I I've seen some players Ju Ju I'm jealous. Bam Out of Bio and Anthony Davis. Aw Man I'm jealous those guys man so envious because one on on what the Lakers they feed the yeah. They give him the ball and he's a problem down there and with band just him getting the ball those situations and him being able to read and react off of one hundred screen and rolls and slips a game are man look at their offensive systems and a put myself in classic. Old. Guy. Now where I'm like well, I would have you know. It's true. No you're right that. I'm sure you've had aw and it Kinda sucks to have this thought. But the way the game has evolved your skill set in your prime was perfect for today's NBA. In terms of know we talk about the stretch five and how there's not really a centerpiece in anymore like that. You probably look at that and salivate and say man if I were twenty five years old now. Yeah. Sh forget about this if I was thirty five out of been I. I was kind of you know I kind of started seeing. I didn't know it was going to be like the fast as it is now but you start seeing the trends and I'm smart enough to be like, okay. My last year in the League. You know a point to shoot more three. Four five threes game. But. Then it got to the point where you know it's funny your whole career you don't WanNa, play the five. Then you get a little older and say a man I think that five positions. You've got pretty good for me, but we had his son at the time. You know. So we were a bit unique in our attack, but yeah, can't help but see it every time. Every time I see the the the League plan now just. Man I just wish I woulda Coulda had that was that was my dream to have that I guess twilight phase in my career trying to figure it out in this new league and and I like it was going. I was just trying to you know put my imprint on an even more. Yeah. We're trying to figure out if this is the hardest NBA Championship. To win or if it's the easiest has to be one or the other, there's no room for nuance in our brains. So you could make the argument that glorified a you tournament right that seems are playing hard against other. You can make the other argument that everybody's isolated. It's tough to focus on basketball if you're just trapped inside Epcot Center or whatever they are so. What are to Which one is it? The hardest are the easiest? I actually saying, this might be the hardest championship and this was like two months ago. How not? If you're the Lakers think about it just think about this disneyworld. Is Cool you can't even around the rise going there in the Blue Disneyworld. There in the bubble in the WALT disneyworld bubble. I and I'm sure they've got a lot of amenities there. But what guys are going there for three months you really gotTa WanNa win that thing you know and. I guess it's relative. You know and I think. The teams that have repeated put that to the side back to back and three peats put those to the side because those years I feel are much more difficult just in my short experience with it but. All other titles as far as like a first year I definitely think this is definitely been one of the hardest you don't. I. Mean you don't have any issues where you're going to say I didn't have the regular energy from the fans everybody still watching. The Games are still going to be played. Whatever the intensity is let they give there's an NBA championship you know up for grabs. Nobody's GONNA. Say Well, it was in the bubble. Let me tell you something if you lost and they wouldn't say Oh, well, that's cool. It was like you know that was the easiest one to win. Them you lost it. You know. So that's what guys have to realize, and that's why I love like I didn't think that he was going to make to make it to the finals I'll be honest with you. But I knew like going into a situation like that the way that they're built in the way that they think I knew they were going to be a problem because they were come. They were going to be coming in ready to whip ass and that's pretty much what it came down to with this. This particular stretch of the season. So in talking to guys who are in the bubble I would imagine team K. The one part that I would say argue is is harder when people probably from the outside look at it and think it might be easier because they're all together. But I think it might be harder for team chemistry to be together nonstop. You saw what the clippers that fell apart and you're thinking like how this fall well if they. Don't like each other and they spend every second with each other in a bubble without their families and can't go out. You know to blow off some steam probably gets on their nerves. So do you in talking to guys have you noticed that it is like the the teams that have the chemistry, the teams that the get along it's been a little bit easier than the teams that might not have that chemistry might not have been through those wars together. I haven't had those conversations but I can tell you know just from experience. Yeah. You have to have a good solid team a well put together a team. To win a championship period, you gotTa care about each other you have, and you have to respect one another. Even if you don't like that per person, you have to respect that person because you have to dive which used to have the dive in the stands but let's just say hustle you have the hustle for that person you have to do things that you want to don't want to do you know so that the team can be successful. If, you don't like the person to your left and your right let's be honest you're not. GonNa go that extra mile. That's just is what it is. You're always going to have that thing in your mind and even if you're quick to the ball is going to be that little split-second. That will make you go forward and then you'll be too late. You know. So yeah, you I think, I, think it definitely brought things to a head if you didn't have a good team and you know. Less. One thing about this beautiful by basketball, you can't the game you can't lots of the game. I can look at you and look at how your plan and see how the team is playing. I can see WHO's giving high fives to who I can see WHO's sitting next to who talking to unless you have that collective team going and you're probably not going to win. So I think the. Bubble was definitely one of those things that kind of exposed exposed that in and that should always be a top guys. Let's how can we build a great team? What are those intangibles we need to do to be a great team before we even get on the court you know it's a great point and it is part of the reason why I love watching basketball is unlike any other sport where? How the guys get along and play together and can read each other and no, you're going to like the one thing I love about the heat. It seems like they're always cutting and they're always making cuts and guys are you know what? I mean like guys are always moving towards the basket and it just watching that when it works, there's nothing prettier and then you see a team like the clippers who flamed out and no one's moving and everyone's standing around waiting for someone else to make a shot and you you're right. You can see the chemistry can read it on a team whether they're really getting along and seeing on the same page on. Cruiser. It's all about one time suck now when they're you know now when they're cool. Not when it's easy, it's about when it's hard you know it's about nobody believes it is. Even, when you don't believe it, are you still going to come in to work the next day and be positive? You know are you going to believe or you're going to have that faith you need to to have to get which needed to get the? You're right. It's it. It helps out the teams that are close and it also really hurts teams that are not close to kind of puts a line in the sand and out of the east team that was very obviously the closest was the heat on the West. The nuggets and the Lakers are just all afraid. That Lebron will create them away if they don't Hustle And so that's why they're going that extra mile not a show. So. You kind of see it working in real life one. The other thing that I noticed though I feel like the refs are getting bullied more in the bubble maybe it's because they can hear the players more. They can hear the coach more but I've started to notice like usually if ball goes out of bounds if fifty call, the first person that emphatically points like we. Got The ball going this way the rest are giving them that call I think that there's a difference not having fans to be to bully them on I. Think more coaches should coach their team to be like, Hey, no matter what happens when a ball goes out just you point as hard as you can immediately and the rest is going to give it to you. For. Everybody. One thing I would love him. So talking this. Is You. Know. If you're a refugee you're gonna get a hard time period. I would just love the League to stop the instant replays. Yeah. That is killing the game I have turned as a consumer of the product I have turn the channel multiple times and I didn't come back to watch the game because there's been an instant replay because when Luca Danni shakes. Did A eurostep somebody got tapped in the face of flagrant You know you know I'm not trying to be old school or anything, but you know I got whacked in the face plenty of times and you know you just keep playing. You know to stop the game to see and figure out if it's a flagrant one or flavor into. Is Much I really don't like mean getting smacked in the face is a part of the game. If somebody does it intentionally that's one thing and maliciously. But if you strip the ball on me and I just do this and and somebody. You know. His crazy crazy. You're absolutely right. It's it's happening every sport where we have taken instant replay, which is great like at the end of the game if you want to find out who the ball last, that's important absolutely I want to see two minutes I have no problem. Right right. That's important. The problem is we've taken instant replay to be like well now we'll have a perfectly officiated game which takes out. The human element which is always going to be there there's physicality and when you slow something down, of course, going to look like, oh, Jimmy hit him in the in the face of noble going up for it's like that's just playoff basketball I. Agree I think there's a level of not to be like I. Think There's also like the losers like nineties basketball doubt was when it was real, we know the. Other and economy you don't want to. Close Line. To the free throw line. There is like there's GonNa be. Things that the game right right He's other Klay. Played pick up and you've been smacked in the face like Oh man you know let's check up. Let's keep keep playing ball. Right you know to would liked somebody gets smacked hold up everybody stopped. Let's review that. Yes what? Who calls too many fouls. And sometimes, it also can benefit the team that just committed the foul in a weird way. If they go back in the completely stopped the game take everybody out of a rhythm it can. Totally, derail a team that's playing really well at the moment if you have to wait five six minutes to figure out what's going to happen like these should these things actually do have an effect on the game and then you have the aspect of like trying to figure out whether or not a play is reviewable before they go into the review and then that's another distraction from the game. I'm with you like that is. Just completely. Lose interest. My attention span is usually fifteen seconds and he was. So if you take me out of that I'm GonNa pick my phone, I'm GONNA Walk GonNA harder in the regular season right? I mean if you're watching a regular season game and they take your attention away, that's no good for anybody. Was this a flagrant like, oh, he hit his eyelash hey man that was in the upper whatever two free throws the ball. And if he does it again, he's out the game a superstar and by I don't even care 'cause I'm watching mash or something like that. So you big mash guy. Mass.

I WANNA series I don't know of Jimmy can give another performance like that, but I think he's given his team confidence. He's inspired them and I live for them to play much much game. Of course, it'll be a closer game down to the wire but yeah, got I got the heat and a dramatic finish and. You know winner take all in the next two out of three anything can happen.

I'm not paying for coffee bro that's the thing. Talking about Jimmy getting all this. You know charging all his teammates.

My good friend PF rival. Enemy de que metcalf from the Seattle seahawks top five wide receiver. I'm hearing that buzz. Well but for me know from every, my said no, I said legally I said you were top five wide receiver actually as much shit as. I said that on Sunday show I looked you up I I looked up online. This is kind of back handed compliment NBC sports said for overreaction Monday right. He came calf top five wide receiver, which is like saying he's not a top five wide receiver. So wh- do you take any fits by that? I mean I don't care because I know who I am in my mind appreciate the the support row on pet in always you know you get me a lot of crap. Appreciate the support call me tough our but now I'm GonNa just go back on Sundays and just continue to do me contained. Do My. When you say continues to do you do your thing? Does that count dropping the ball or getting stripped at the one yard line? Where is that part of your thing? Now I mean you and understand because you know you've never been in front of a defender as far as I, have I mean it was it was a stupid mistake on my part I. Really. Burnt bad and then think he was gonna come back the horror but no, I lived learned definitely happen again. So. Real question to what happens like take us through the next five minutes on the sideline after that because obviously you're a tremendous competitor, you beat yourself up but do people come up to you in like hey, you got the next one or someone like, Hey, you're an. That's the worst part during the game I don't think people would call me. Eighty light you shouldn't have done that but because already not but you know people just trying to. Me We'll get the next one. Just look at the next nisqually just don't let it happen again so that's what everybody else was saying on the sideline but I was. Really just laughed it off because I was like, I, I really did I write? Just tried the walk into the his aw and the do really stripped the ball away from me like not that out of my hands I, it was just like one of those i. Like my heart sunk my stomach right after hats. you want you want I imagine. Yeah I imagine tell us what the what the what it looked like someone just walk into your room. Here's my. Open the door. Okay. what was film like though the next day You know everybody they showed the clip a couple of times you know you can't do this can don't let it happen again was sick and tired of seeing the club by even the next day on a Monday and it just happened Sunday. Sunday evening. I was tired of seeing it. I know I got mad a couple of times and I didn't talk to anybody during the meeting like I was laser focused from from that point on but you know. I'm glad to happen to me and not anybody else though. Take did to Sean Jackson, reach out to you and say, Hey, man gets better I'm pretty sure you should have reached out to me. Why did I did? Hear from you I did reach out to you because I told you online I said decayed the big red flag about him was his one yard split was the slowest of any wide receiver group. So like that last yard that you got caught on, that was something that scouts new out of college. You know what I would like to see though you do that the one honest I guarantee I'm faster than you in one yard split I promise you that I promise you that promise also almost bro Are you concerned maybe you've you've lost a step because you're you're cuts are too good now like you've lost that straight line speed. Okay. I don't lose a as you. You can see you just told me Sunday. that. Are Pretty much gained this stuff in my opinion because you called me a top five hours sleep. Yeah. I I did. Win that case. In that case do you do I need to call five kicker in order for you to feel happier? No because I know the middle near never changes I'm my own worst critic. So if I start to tell myself I'm a top five kicker I start hearing that from you. That's rat poison and I don't need that from media guys like you. I'm just I'm focused on doing my job. Me Because you're not a top five united thought Dan. All right. Well, one other thing that you said was you you came at me because you want to go viral you want to get your cliques in whatever that's fine. You took a cheap shot and said that I don't at you on Sundays which I've rectified by the way. But then you accused me of having a man crush on you because I tweet about you when you screw up. In reality I think you have a man crush on me because you're always checking my line after game seeing what might have said about you you see that's where you gotta misconstrued. Okay. So I have to actually hear from other people that's where the real like no line come comes in like. A real man would say something to meet instead of sub tweeting. Just putting my name in a tweet like at meeting at buttons therefore reason because you're gonNA search, might you're gonNA search, your name and your? Name I don't search my name people, tag me in in what you say and then that's how I see. I, don't I don't go looking for trouble how about this I'll have big cat tag you in times mentioned. You he'll snitch on it. Yeah I. Got You. That makes sense. Yet I got you. What do you say to fantasy owners that might have lost because you got stripped the one yard line put themselves. Uh. Wool that I don't think like personally if I had you on my team, I probably wouldn't start me over you. Exactly so But I would also like not fumbled. The one yard line is that too much to ask. I mean put yourself in. All right. Every fantasy owner out there. Let me ask you. Do I do I not gain as many yards do I not score on purpose is that is that that something don't do of course I want to score of course I WANNA win of course I WANNA as minyard's I can tell the team Fail anybody has a problem with that light. Goes, start yourself go to draft yourself. I'm pretty sure you know is probably impossible to do that. So don't don't come at me when you know. We say, I'm not trying my hardest when you know I I, really I wanna see myself do do good as as well as the team. So I'm not. I'm not out there. Just you know seeing the bid on purpose. Yeah. What was good was you score a touchdown later that game so you can always say like I scored that touchdown four my fantasy owners out there to give them a little taste because I did screw that one. But if you lost in fantasy because de que fumbled that touchdown, please tag him tomorrow and let him know. That you demand justice and that's what room. Yes. People I have some stats for you though because you have been having an unbelievable year. Not to pump you up because I know you got confidence where I saw this stat today and it's eye-popping. You have right now you're averaging twenty five point two yards per reception. That's insane. Sixteen catches four, hundred, three yards on pace for sixty four, sixteen, hundred yards. Now I've seen the. Player comp analogy that's been going around and I actually kind of agree with it. But Teo Hall of Famer do you model anything after him or I mean like when people say that? Are you like thank you I appreciate it but I got a long way to go or what are your thoughts? I do appreciate the comparisons and all that. But you know on my own person I'm I'm not trying to be like anybody else I'm. Gay. Mask. Trying to be like decay on the field I mean the comparisons are great. They're comparing me to hall of Famer but you know mom trying to be mean I'm trying to be the best me commuted I can be, but that's a that's a great comparison to have a hall of Famer. So I think you should do you should lean into it and you should demand to trade and really PTO don't get the joke. You do get the joke you're smiling you should demand trait. Driveway sit ups use of Dr we love working out. Of Order. Back. Go. Ahead. I'm good when I promise you, I'm I'm living good as you can see. Him Sasha Room Yeah. You look your your bedroom. Looks like my dorm. Your bedroom looks exactly like that where. Repair I'm. Pretty. I'm. Pretty. Air Matches unjustly right there. Basically this is. A. Scared Straight. Hey kids. This is what happens when you get drafted in the second round not the first round. Case. I've noticed that you've been going real hard on the Russel Wilson for MVP, train your leading that you've tweeted about. Obviously like I can see why you'd say that about your quarterback says, he keeps passing you the ball but the fact is he has twice as many interceptions as Josh Allen does. So that's kind of a problem as a voter as an MVP voter I look at mistakes I and that's kind of a red flag from your new concerned about that. Who Josh Allen has has half as many interceptions zero as Russell Wilson is your thought he had one. Oh Yeah. We're not counting. We're not counting owns yes. To fewer interceptions Russell Wilson does I mean he tells now's the twelfth question. John. Brown. So exactly as many as as Russell Wilson. Native. You haven't seen. Status Russell had sixteen by sound. I thought he had thirteen o what I took away three because they're against the cowboys. County gets that you know what? He would have seventeen. That's true. That's me yet it is. Imagine. If you cost. Magin if he has like fifty touchdown passing. Fifty one, what are you going to feel like that I'm pretty sure has more rushing yards in. Tied for the for the lead league in receiving Stefan Digs. Yeah. If you if you had one more yard, I bet that'd be nice. I'm not even if this conversation last week I'm pretty sure we got. We would have been got into a heated argument. Over now. Doing this. Week, oh by where we really gave you shit. Yeah. We we want. I'm not even. Trip but last week. We. Could probably would have faced on. Do you have to do? Yeah. So I I saw that you also you put out a rap song you did a little collaboration shady is that Sadie of a neighbor or Shays and song who's the other guy on the track the guy that carries a bill from. From up here in Seattle man, his name is ru He goes by King, Koto okay. You you really liked the auto tune How much outta you really like this. Is Really. No auto tune on they're. Not Much I did notice that one of the lyrics you said that like it was Kinda dicit all the tough guys talking tough on twitter out there I couldn't help but feel like that was a slight at me. Hey, if the shoe fits then you know. I'M GONNA if you're. Trying to. Say is why why do you feel threatened by the earlier because I, know you spend all the time scrolling time you're probably looking at my timeline. As recording. Tracks on me. To Club back. Follow you. Yes, you do. You Deli you definitely follow me because I'm faster than you ooh. Got You. There goes doing I walk I walk right in. Distract. Real question though. Real question. We've we've talked to a couple of players since the season started trying to mark Ingram and Cam Jordan last week but is, how is it with? No fans? Is it tough to get like hyped up? Is it tough moments in the game where you kind of zone out maybe not when you're on the field but on the sideline, how does the energy feel like from a player's perspective because we're on the fan perspective it looks the same as long as they don't show the stands obviously exactly. Yeah I mean it feels the same there I'm not GonNa lie we still just they still keeping score. is still a defense out there trying to stop you. So in my mind the way, it feels that there is not any different I know Miami Sunday. And just the have some fans in the stands it it it did feel different in Miami I felt better even those it was I detail out there but it it feel better in my I i. believe that I think that like you know even like I think the steelers are having seventy, five, hundred fans this weekend even a few fans has to be better than no fantasy. It just feels like someone's actually watching you. Exactly. Yeah. I know up here in Seattle we've had two two home games than. I mean just the just having our fans. They're gonNA make a big difference whether it's not thousand, two, thousand or fifty thousand GonNa make a big difference. But I would love to for the seahawks to allow a couple fans back in stadium. Could you imagine if Seahawk was there jeanette he that's his endzone that decay fumbled out of just he would've been. He would've. Rage Seahawk, and then like five guys wearing the receiver gloves and they would've asked those guys, there's one that has like a hawk like the hawk. Is. There is there. Yeah about this. When we allow fans, you come to a gang. Okay and I'll hold up a sign saying don't stop. Yeah. You like the babe. Ruth like for a sick kid. You promised me one fumble out of the end zone. That would be amazing. If you scored a touchdown Cam Newton handing the ball to a three year old girl and you just came up to me in the front row and gave me the ball. Money you look funny. I'm not I'm not giving you know thanks your top five receiver. Overreaction Wednesday. Yeah. I. So who Saudi you'll be odd I. I'm neutral in here I, mean obviously if it really got down to it like if pf looked at me and gave me the look like GonNa Fuck de que up, we'd fuck you up but up until that point like I'll still be friends with you. You really think you can do that though yeah. Yeah. No if he gave me that long to. Voice ain't. Why did you voice things? What do you mean? Fuck you up because. You're you're not confident and throw hands and I would fuck you up and then I would do the dog piss on you Miss Ole Miss Celebration. Asia's. Won't. Shoes. Was the last time you got into a fight. Middle School the fact that you had to take that long about it. Not. Really an Alpha cat we throw down like every week. Yeah. Just stay sharp club. How about this this? Reason I had to think about was I had to think about when the last time somebody really actually trapping. And not over twitter. Well. So you're out of practice centers where I'm hearing. Yeah. I'm what you're out of practice. Then what about on the football field have you ever have you ever tried to punch somebody who's wearing a helmet? Don The point somebody wearing a helmet you think too much. I would imagine most cornerbacks. I I would say that they probably don't WanNa. Try You have you talked to Lane Kiffin we're on the lane trae now I know my boy pat hit me he's he's excited about it. Yeah. I. Have it out on the okay. So we're big Ole miss fans than you. That's crazy. Crazy did you think when he was supporting Miss? Or as as some people call us. Are So, why are you wearing a danger? This is for ob top and they don't have a football team. They might I don't know I don't think they have dating together they do. Well, their football team doesn't matter their basketball team ain't now stopping top and future Chicago themed like you're pretty nervous because you you just start twisting your ankle. So I'm going to this. I'm actually loosening up my ankles in cases gets more king case against. And I have to run out of the studio. Would you. What did you think about link Kiffin flushing the toilet during Media Day Thought. It was very funny. Opinion I mean the guys carry. One or number two I think dropping deuce definitely a deuce. Yeah he got up and. Of course, he's dropping cranked it out hit to flush by the way we were talking about this last week. How bad does that flight to Miami Sauk if you have to fly down there, play game in the fly back it seems like that would ruin my entire week. It was terrible. Getting meal yet if that's their beds on those planes if I was an owner, I would. I would I would like. Yeah but I would get a jumbo. And and just put a bunch of like like king sized beds and my team be real comfortable. See Not which ought do Ryan. I be great owner. That's that's a fucking awesome over there are seventy people flying on the planes seventy beds. That's you can fit that how many pink pong balls inside of a seven forty seven. I'm sorry. What's the how many ping pong balls inside a seven forty seven how many? How many lights would lampposts in Manhattan? These are the type of. Job Interviews, slash. You're going to have to answer when you're out of the League in a couple of years. Yeah. When you have to get a job working out. Wolf of wall, Street type stuff. This is how they figure out who the real smart people are as a worker. Now, it's what I I won't have to. You have been unbelievable to share I do like to I can't believe you don't I guess you don't WanNa be compared to another guy put the Te'o comparison is spot on I mean that in the best way like you or me or people I would rather I would I have no problem being compared to the Oh Randy Moss Calvin Johnson or Julio Yo Download problem being compared I don't like being compared to anybody but if somebody said those four Numb, GonNa take it with a grain of salt and just keep it pushing but. Not Not a bad comparison nickname. You need a nickname to get some real buzz going to. Who D-. Decay, that's nickname K that's a pretty good nickname would about well, no. Actually I looked this up 'cause I google vk metcalf nickname you gave yourself a nickname when you were in high school on your high school highlight reel optimists Mega Cath. WHOA that's pretty cool. How did you think of that? We must out lot of friends how high were you and you thought. You definitely didn't have any friends that are like, Dude, that's lame. No no everybody likes everybody was calling me. Optimistic or or money, and those those are much in high school. I have one last question I searched. Sometimes you do if you go on Google and you people also ask there'll be a bunch of questions and the first one is how many passes has decay metcalf dropped. The answer. I don't of his seventy four catchable targets the former Ole miss. The end out had seven passes from Star quarterback Russell Wilson slip through his hands as a result, metcalf finished tied with the fourth most drops. In two, thousand nineteen. That's last year though that's just what people ask. I. Didn't ask that was Google I didn't I would never ask them. Are You mad that that Russel doesn't throw as many interceptions so that way you'll never have the stat Larry Fitzgerald Stat, which is he has more tackles than dropped passes. There you go. Compare me to know another person. Reach that because Russell selfishly doesn't throw as many interceptions. Yeah. He doesn't let US TACKLE STATS UP Yeah but at least they're google my name for res. True I didn't ask that again I think you're having a great year top five. Teo piece. Passes, of this year. you drop one last week. My. Maybe made that up yeah. Well, the full council like five in my book, but it counted one. Typically no zero. Actually I think that's counts as caught. PATS yet. Why don't why don't you run at people in punch him in the face more like like, George, kill does. Good question you're about the same size. I'm not doing kill George kill is a piece George. He's yeah. I just think it'd be good. You're big enough you can do it. I'd like to see knock out of free safety this year not like to see you play an NFL game. Yeah. Same. You have one drop this year Jake just looked it up. That's not bad. So you actually that part of your game they were go. Fuck the Google. Yeah Jake. do you have any questions for? All. Wow. Yes. By any questions for us before we let you go I mean you. You know that we we like you. I don't even know if you listen on Mondays but we've been pumping you up. Every Monday. I really I. Really Don't know how to take it because your boy over here at talk so much true I. I've been saying good stuff about you. During the game iron sharpens iron you know like if I don't coach you up hard I know how you like to be coached is true if I don't get on your dog cost you, then you might not perform next week. So in reality, you should be thanking me for being such an asshole. PF Ti. Got a question for you. How do you feel about? The. Comparison. Excellently Oh, no decay metcalf compared to the sexiest man in the history of romance novel all Women Want No. I'm just. Asking I'm fine being compared to. That's good. Fabio is famous for last having great hair can hit by that bird roller your nose broken by by Peregrine Falcon. You name lately and. Lately, I've been here in the trolls comparison like which one was. It's true. We haven't heard from Fabio in awhile what's up with Fabio as he passes prime like it's Fabio. Dead how funny would it be a fabio was just fattest faulk but you fabio has covert Fabrio Lonnie Fabio. Lanzoni, what's he see? We still alive what has happened? He look here's the people also ask what has happened to. Fabio always here America's in two thousand sixteen and lives in Los Angeles where he now enjoys a life a lot of people in Hollywood celebrities they take themselves too seriously. That's a quote from Fabio. This is pretty good too. They said someone asked him why do women always go crazy for you and he respond by explaining it's just because he's always himself. So he's just like it's because I'm Fabio, right? That's a dumb question I'm fucking Fabio. Yes, he is. So. Yeah I like the Fabio comparison, the the troll comparison I think that just kind of came out of nowhere I don't think so far fetched far fetched on that one. I'm. was I was I was thinking the same thing like well, I'll even compare. Yeah. So so in the future, you're gonna drop the troll comparison. Big Cats going at you every time I talk shit about you online. So you're kept informed of that and I'm going to continue saying I'm a fan in hoping that You know you continue to be like Te'o and just dominate everyone and I. Believe you boy big.

We, are coming to you live from the Geiko Fox Sports Radio Studio Lot fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on your car insurance visit GEICO DOT COM for a free write quote it of course, is an NFL football Monday, what a weekend of games and is not over obviously you're always have the Monday night game and we got the Great Aaron Rodgers on display against Atlanta Matt Ryan could throw for some yardage himself but we've also got a bonus and I was really. Hurt. For lack of a better word. That the Patriots, and cheese were not playing yesterday. But now I actually am glad they're playing it out I wish that Cam Newton was able to play, of course our prayers. Reciting. About what? For meal to chiefs is fun to watch the the the you know. Pat, Mahomes? Yeah. The Jordan s quarterback of the chiefs. I just enjoy watching the show and he's still gonNa Bella checks defense. So let's see Andy Reed's. have been able to put up points on Bella check. So it's interesting but you're right. Obviously you lose some of the buzz and some of the sting at that is the voice of my partner Rob. Parker how are you? I'm doing good. I'm excited. Couple of things to watch tonight a little football a little baseball. Yeah. He's raised for the NIGHTCAP I was watching the Astros and Chris I don't know we might have a nightmare scenario we'll wait and see but Stroz the as will leading to nothing in his game and you know what happened to era to outs nobody on an error and opened the floodgates. Baseball very weird. You make an error Chris or you walk somebody and they make you pay you normally get. Yeah. And remember we saw that with. MINNESOTA. TO HAVE THE GAME IN COMMAND So you're saying nightmare scenario. So let's say hypothetically to Astros got to the world series do you think that would be bad for baseball? Yeah it's just no it would. It would. It would close to clear their names but I'm just saying considering that they never got the. Booth, they should've gone. They never got you know what I mean, and then for them to get to the world series again now, they'd have to win not only this Sui that have to beat the Yankees or the ways whoever comes from that. Bracket. But anyway, we'll get into that as well. So, there's so much going on. Yes. Yes. Indeed. We have a great show planned for you guys with the bottom of the hour friend of the show former NFL quarterback Sean Sows Berry will join us from Houston he's got a show on seven ninety sports talk. They're obviously a good man to talk to considering the big news of the day that Bill O. Rien, the Texans GM about saw how about that about? Right about that, he has finally been relieved of his duties and we will start there in a moment is introduced. The crew got DJ Alex. Tyson. Aka Alex the Vegan any of you that have been out there. They'd follow him on Instagram and have seen his photos in his darn near Speedo. A tree. I didn't I didn't. I wasn't paying attention hours watching the flip flops he had on his feet now. Flip Yes. Dude I've been wearing them hall weekend I, saw he didn't have any. It was Austin Skin. Cancer. That's what a young her looks like come on. You heard him at a beach in southern cal. That's true. He's at a beaches other Kelly for those that don't photos you know Chris. If he had any more material, he'd have a bikini all. We got the Super Producer Rob G is in the House and Rob Gee I to say welcome to parenthood to rob G. Little Arias, putting it on him and that's good for you. Input hair on your chest. But my dad used to tell me put hair on your chest. So. There's good welcome to parenthood I've been through it. And of course, on the updates. Hey, that's right. Is Brian. Finley. All right. Let's get into it rob Bill O'Brien gone. You said it it's about time you want to expound just you know what Chris went. First of all I'll be the first one to say I'm against coaches being general managers I think there's a conflict adventurous absolutely I think you need to people doing that job Chris I really do all care how I remember bill parcells. You remember that if I'm making the dinner, I want to buy the groceries that was his his and everybody can do. Chris. Can't do it and we've seen Bill O'Brien You know make mistakes with different players Hopkins they traded away. A lot of payroll like you can't trade away your best players I don't care. You gotta be able to figure it out Chris and work with people. We don't have to be buddy buddy. We don't have to love each other right. The working relationship is is what sometimes you have to do. and. The same thing we saw with the Lions Dairy Sleigh, right? Same thing Chris. He's their best DB and they get rid of him. Not The line's been able to stop anybody no you cannot do that. You just can't give away and the jets did the same exact thing. So we've seen these mistakes, guys. Robbie. Wage being cloudy Yeah he's traded away De'andre Hopkins. Probably. Give him a ton of money Yuccas Walhi. He gave him a ton of money. Chris is nothing but mistakes here man they were Owen five and rightfully. So they finally made this thing how four Oh. Informed saw Abed on four and they got rid of and I will say this they. I'm not I agree with everything you say it's time for him to go. However, they did have a tough schedule so. You. Know they play four really tough games. Vikings obviously were were struggling, but still a pretty good team in most people's eyes. So they've had a tough schedule but to your point, look look at what the Andre Hopkins is doing with Cuyler Murray, you don't think he could do that with the Andrei humane. Harlem. He column Odia. Court, no Martin Whites, but he has done it with with. With this Shawn Watson and you try that was just a terrible move and look one important thing for executives and coaches, but particularly, even more. So ex-. Executives, you are not more important than superstar players. Period, you could be a great executive but should better have some great players. Period. And you get rid of the Andrey Hopkins because you got beef and I know he wanted extra money and all that he's a great receiver paid demand. and. So Bill O'Brien has gotten what look and I'm GonNa give him his not flowers but he look he got them to the playoffs four of the last seven years or six years but here's what I'd say. There comes a time where you that's all he can do. Right, it's evident that that's what he is. He'll get you there, but he can't take you any further. That was the case with our man in Cincinnati. Right Marvin Lewis. Yes. Who didn't know especially in the NBA Playoffs John. Times Chris Ryan was Oh, seven in the playoffs. At some point you gotta say, okay, we gave the guy a shot it happening there too Yep dwayne Casey who is a good coach. Now he's in Detroit he was in Toronto Rob Right they couldn't get over the right and nick nurse comes in and get them over the Hump sometimes even in a good situation and I'm not saying this was. was good but it wasn't a horrible because again, they were essentially almost a perennial playoff team under O'Brien but he couldn't take him to the next level and this year looked like he wasn't even going to take them to the playoffs level. So I, I think this is a good move Romeo Cornell is brought in to replace him and let's not bypass the Romeo Cornell thing because obviously like O'Brien. He is a bill Bella check disciple. And Ron call them. Did you call them a disciple he them because they don't win Brian. Hughes in. HOUSTON. who gets fired you got Cornell who failed as a head coach. You. Got Our friend and did a good job in some places but obviously out of the league, right now's now head coach Eric Mangini Yeah. Genius. Good with the jets and then kind of fell through in Cleveland and all that Joe Judge off to a rough STI- my boss rough an understatement way. Bad. Back Matt Patricia in general which. If I did you watch did you see that Game Chris up fourteen nothing gave up five straight scores? That is their Mo what to call it like like like look at New Orleans no Thomas they don't even have their best player Chris and you'll get shredded like like the saints due to the Lions and now they've lost what is it twelve of thirteen I mean come on? Well considering you fired the guy who was air before him for making the playoffs two out of four years and going nine and seven his last two years. He said nine wins is not enough. You got. You barely got nine wins in the three years of Patricia. He's got twenty. Five. Ten twenty five in one and air. Brian floors who you know give a little time but he looked like a nice breath of fresh air on the Belichick. Coaching tree lives it year by, and now they should step back. All right yeah. Yeah. One and three. So. Here's the and you and I've talked about this before rob and I'm an old school got a little more old school than you even though you're, Oh, you're just playing. Oh I'm a little old school. I I don't mind a heart coach a rugged coach. A coach who runs runs things I'm fine with that. But. You have to have the pedigree I mean it's high school you don't college you might not do. Could you have this scholarship back pocket Chris? So you can get away with in the pros baby you better have the pedigree. Or you better have some other way of getting their respect, which is probably winning right away right because if it doesn't work if you don't win or they don't respect you because you don't have the degree, it could be ugly and that's what we see with Matt Patricia coming in with this big I've heard pro athletes tell me about coaches who came in with major swag right and they hadn't earned it in the players is the players like oh He got swag like he's a multiple champion but he's done nothing and they don't respect that and that's what I see. Rob With a lot of the not every single one of them. But a lot of the Bella check disciples they try to run that Patriot way right and it just doesn't work is not working for judge, is not worth of Patricia Charlie Weis Tony White failed one if you remember was, what was his name Chris Sale Winning Ham? Was the coach before Holly Wise I just a nice start there I forgot. But Iran willing tyrone, Willingham and why took his players you remember like the first first year and I a second year excel gave him a big contract and then when all his recruits came Notre Dame went down the tank and they wonder firing him right right. So so all I'm saying is most of these guys have failed having done well, and I think that the Bella. Check I don't I. I would be against hiring every anybody from his tree and even Josh mcdaniels go a interesting you. He's rumored. Yeah. Always rumor but he's rumored to maybe replace O'Brien in Texas. He's always rumor critic got the job. You remember we lost it in Denver. You know why lost it to read? Well, he was eleven seventeen. So yes, and what are you? Also you also moved up to take Tim t-bone draft and he also got busted. Videotaping another opponent on the road you remember that that's Ballot check can do that. No one else can do. You can't take that on the road as Sabella check thing don't try to copy that. Now I hear you rob and you're right look. Some guys are meant to be like it's like rob when you hear people talk about owning a business, right? Let's be an entrepreneur. Everybody's on the entrepreneur and that's great I think we should promote that owning your own business being entrepreneur. Guess what Everybody can't be an entrepreneur by you know I mean whether one number one, you might not be built for it. It might not be strips but number two, some people have to work for entrepreneurs. Some people are going to be employees everybody Cam. Employees own some stuff to. Your Business businesses but we're also employees and we're doing fine with that. And somebody's guys are built to be coordinators or position coaches. There they may be great at that, but they're not meant to be the head guy. And it seems like many of Bella checks people are meant to be you know coordinators position coaches under a guy like him. Josh mcdaniels he's interesting. I mean look one one job he failed does it it doesn't mean he won't be successful somewhere else we act saw that with Bella that who failed in Cleveland but still with the track record ease guys underbelly check I'd be a bit hesitant. Eight seven, seven, ninety, nine, on Fox Eight, seven, seven, nine, six, sixty, three, sixty, nine we wanna ask you why do so many ballot check disciples or as rob called him heathens continue to fail as head coaches. Is it time to stop picking from the ballot check tree you're turning away in as we continue the conversation with you next it is Kristin rob the odd couple right here on Fox.

So even extra fifteen percent it when you switch by Tober seven all right now October seventh is right around the corner fact October seven is Wednesday. So. Go ahead and call or visit Geiko Dot Com right now to learn more I rob, we threw it out. Why do these Bella check disciples. This these people from the belic check tree, the fruit. More. Often than not is rotten s ron to the Kumar. Why do you think it is eight, seven, seven, ninety nine Fox your turn to tell me around. Right let's do mark. Maryland you're on the odd couple of Fox sports radio what's up mark. A first step you guys on Today Man Man Rain. I'm man love the show I'm glad I can call them. No magic city Monday sprouts. Na Bj. In. DC. We WanNA party well. I. Know. I was coming to go to church. In DC we go to. Party. More along bombed-out definitely a good time. But I just think the the ballot check coaching tree. I think these guys are just a little arrogant I mean you come off such excess with a you know a big time coach learning the INS and outs, but you can't take out the door. You know what I mean it's it's really tough. It's only one ballot check I. WanNa go stat out there. Matt Patricia with the Second Half of the game. They're they're getting. One hundred and thirty three points in the second half of game. So. Not. Just, pick euless and you know. Part thanks mark for the call. He's a defensive. Offensive Guru right? Right. He's a defensive coach. Did you hear the excuse? He said today he got trashed by talking about well when I came to Detroit a lot of work to do what work what were they like a year removed from the playoff yeah it was nine seven. Yes and NATO players I I'm trying to remember roster. But even if it's different players you may you help bring in two different players by you know I mean come on it's just it's just jokes how `Bout Chad and Cincinnati you're on the couple of Fox sports radio what's up Chad? G. What's. Up Chris So Bill. Bella. Tech he has. More personable skills than people give him credit for he worked with Lt Hey. Carson lot of those players from the giants. Those these disciples don't have the same skin you and just like the last call he was correct they come in a little bit more pompous. Arrogant without that same grit and I think football players relate to that no nonsense personality that bill check gives because he's more disciplined. So what? That same track record right check Chris is what Chris was talking about. You could get away with that when you win you can. It's hard to argue Chris if I'm telling you do it this way and we win. Okay right. But if I tell you this way and we lose like Matt Patricia Detroit Right How in the world people are going to buy into it. Right I'm looking at you funny now no doubt. Probably. Also has a way of making his players. From behind closed doors that we don't see in the media but making them no, he cares let. Rock people know you care they'll make big automania they'll take doubt. Gabe in. Fresno you're. You're on the couple of Fox sports radio what's up. and. WHAT'S OUT FELLAS So Hey, just wanted to say Chris, I love what you've been doing with the worship. Wednesdays that's pretty awesome. Man. Thank you. There you go. So what I was thinking whereas well, number one bill belichick is one of the greatest geniuses of in the NFL as far as coaching and. Cheated he's also past ten. Yeah. Yeah I. I'll give you that one I'll give you that one but I I, feel like that can also be part of his downfall for some of his his coaching tree and because as a teacher I know that when you are trying to teach someone to do something a lot of times if you know exactly how to do it, it's just so much easier just to tell them how to do it and then sometimes do it for them. You know so like Near near on yeah. So he's not he's not giving that humility side of you know what? Let me have them take offense or defense and do what they do. Instead he's saying, Oh this is how my team is going to work it, and this is how we're going to do it, and then on the flip side, he's changed his system so much because he does know how to work with what the talent that he has whereas some of his Defensive Coordinator Matt Patricia Your San. He's going over to this team and trying to take what he learned from Bill Belichick, well, that might not work for his specific team. And so. That makes sense. Thanks for the call. Appreciate. We got our Mashaan sows berry friend of the show host of the Sean. Salisbury. Show on Sports Talk Seven Ninety eight Houston coming up in a moment. But I be sure to catch live editions of the odd couple with Chris Broussard and Rob Parker Weekdays at seven PM Eastern Four PM Pacific on Fox sports radio. The IHEARTRADIO APP friend of mine arrived from back at the old place. He's now the host of the Sean Salisbury show former. NFL quarterback he's on Sports Talk Seven Ninety eight Houston are man Sean Salisbury what's up brother? What's happening guys how you doing crazy stuff in Houston that's for yes. Yes. Look from our standpoint I think a lot of people's this was the right move. Are you are in agreement with that or do you think he should have been given given more time? No I'm one hundred percent agreement and I. Just usually you know I didn't take the county mayor of quite frankly guys have the balls to do it. I don't he's been letting bill O'Brien it seems like whenever they struggle he gives him more power and ownership is giving bill so much leeway in this off season you know signed him made him the official GM and you thought well are are are they gonNa do this especially when the excuses of the first three games of Gannett fell gave him and Calvin famous McNary they don't Bob Macaire spoke more. The. Famous. He didn't know what his thinking was. Guys I. I mean I I've probably been more of let's wait and see because we all know this crazy business I'd like to see guys get fired at. You know what? That's the business when you make four or five million bucks. On. Take that on you know that going in. The right. Now you get the good stuff going in and sometimes it doesn't work out. You gotTA deal with the bad sue but I said on my show this morning not true. They gotta get the franchise because they'd no energy coming out. Players are not playing for him. Players are underachieving. It's not just bill they got a lot to do but guys, it's been groundhog day. It's been bill, Murray Grant, day for years you get there and if you just want to settle with getting into the playoffs, we'll then you're no better than the Cincinnati Bengals for years or right now you're so you're the jets and the giants. and. You're going south not north this had to happen. I know it sucks this early for bill but he's got a lot of money. He'll way I'm somewhere they needed to do this because the franchise was bad and it's been going nowhere indeed gutted and it won't be the last move they make. Up Rob can I? Got To go ahead. Okay. They we all know four playoff the last six years. You know you look at that from now side in you say, well, that's not bad. Do you think this team had the talent or has to go further and O'Brien couldn't get them over the hump or he was doing a good job of getting that far. I think a lot of it had to do with number four and I'll end end with some good players and we'll wa was his best Shawn Watson. While he's listened, he's still got another level to get to if he wants to be Aaron and Russell. Wilson. But he's got such a great skill set. He. He he needs to improve a little bit on hold the ball too long. You can come out of the locker room. Faster watching but here I think bill hit his head on the ceiling man I. Don't think there was anywhere else to go. I. Don't think they were responding and when you start slow every game and concerts. All VIN is a different rapper same stuff and I agree get into the playoffs is great. The problem is getting to the playoffs is for some teams when you've got a quarterback like this and you guys know whether it's basketball or baseball getting there after a while could not be enough that just then he I think the team quit responding and I think they've got some skill players but you know what? He's traded a lot of capital. Now, the next guy is going to be left with the whether that they're the enemy or somebody else you trade a bunch of guys for Tunsil. Getting anybody to stop the run your I mean, you start to look? No No de'andre. Hopkins. So he's given a lot of top assets away and when you're owen four, you gotta make changes. But yes, because whenever you have a quarterback, it's a great place to start at an ultra or pro bowl left tackle. But I I don't think that at least in this franchise that bill was GonNa get him any further I think they've capped out and I also think they tapped out and it was time for a change and Sean the other part is. The Texans most people would know this have the highest payroll this you at two, hundred, forty, eight, million. So he's thrown around money but but but no, no results and Rob Chris and I are both against GM's being coaches because I think there's a conflict there it could just you need different people one guy handling the money and one guy handling the the playing. Tom I just don't believe in it. Rob I'm with you. Bella checks able to pull it off. But in truth he's one in how many remember when my call Mike God Bless my Guy Stuart Scott I remember I guess I was sitting on the set of sports center and we were this was years ago when my Corgan was in Seattle, he got the GM job They were struggling as the head coach and GM, and I said when my takes a suit back off and and just goes back to coaching, they'll be good and they'll go to a superman and they did not. It's not a pat on the back. You know not right now your doctor and a lawyer Bull. I also and you guys around enough players. Here's how players feel coaches. One thing coaches got my back. He's my guy. He might position Jan head coach and then when I walk upstairs the dudes in a suit. Right and so so the trust factor becomes different plus listen. He's got a personnel decisions on Monday who am I working out on Tuesday? Who am I paying told by the way I'm putting the game plan in Oh I got to be the head coach. You can't do both effectively and problem is he didn't do either very well, and that's not a good sign. And when you're going for, you gotTa make changes that sucks part of the business but bill O'Brien didn't he didn't actually endear himself not only to the media, which is fine but he's a breakthrough that if you're going to be like that, you got to win a lot of games gets into the playoffs that's not enough to happen and it had to happen now. Solids Berry Sports Talk Seven Ninety in Houston joining the couple John. You mentioned O'Brien being a bit abrasive. He's yet another Bella check disciple. And so as Romeo Cornell the veil who hadn't had a lot of success. Brian floors you know we'll give him time in Miami but Matt. Patricia Josh mcdaniels I mean we could go charlie wise on and on and on why do you think that these guys it from Bella checks tree don't seem they can't have much success on their own as coaches I think it's a couple of old one is a lot of them try to bill when they leave their initially and there's only one of those dudes gotTa Josh tried it early and it didn't work. Patricia looks like you've Seen Him Matt Patricia in the first week maybe he's like. The media looking like, what are you doing? He was mad and angry you know what? I'm saying and check get away with that. There's super bowls in a game. Okay. Why it also it also tells me that bill's got his hand in everything that a lot of the success into their position coach coordinator he has lots of good. Bryant floors is different guys do because I think he beats his own drum I think he took the great stuff from bill apply to what he's. You know the the intelligence and what he's got. My personality is going to be different and I'm not GonNa do it like I'm GonNa do something different but I'll take the good stuff and lastly, and you know this will you leave there? You're usually going to a crappy team number one usually a team that's not winning and if you don't have Tom Brady and a few other things, well, baby don't wait as much in. A lot of personnel and it's obvious that they don't have the same I at least today right now whether it's mcdaniels or Patricia or Charlie or Romeo, they don't have the same I for overseeing all the personnel that bill does it's a big difference and they have not been successful mystery in the league right now is Andy Reid. Reading this dot grows it's hard but it An era. CBN Ameobi one of those guys to. Them Real. Quick. We got to ask you about the Astros. They're gonNA. Win this game one. You. Know they hated been baseball America do you think they get Outta? Make it to hail see has? Man of people go to be around the country people are going to hate it did here's the people are going to say see we told you they were a good ride out of trash. I don't listen this first one huge for them because guys taxing that bullpen five straight days. Oakland's been better all year long they got to their best pitcher today what they have done guys. They're stars having hit this year and guess what they all did today. So if the bats wake up, they're dangerous team. I. Still Think after one game you say, well, Oakland. Still got to be the favourite, but I'll tell you get down to. Bat Stay. Hot. The Oakland. A.'s we're going to have trouble catching up to that 'cause they don't hit. You know they're not explosive hitting team and ask those bats awoken today if they do there's a good chance they'll get their whether they can win it all or not remains to be seen there at awfully young pitching staff.

American, public you DOT COM. Is the Chris Rob, a magic city Monday, and we're gonNA take a break from the NFL just briefly. To give props at least I'm GonNa give props. To. Jimmy Butler. Butler went off yesterday. I mean that is one of the best and I'm GONNA give Nick Right Credit for this and I hadn't really thought about it this way. But he he said it on first things first this morning and he's right. It was robbed one of the best. Performances in the finals. That you can really think of from a guy who's not like you know. Great. Player you know what I mean. He's not going down like Lebron or Kawai or staff or K. D. or Alan Iverson Shack Kobe. You know what I mean like it's rare either he's a star. He's a legitimate star right now but unless. He has a really great run over the next several years. You know he's not going to be a hall of fame or anything like that. He's not somebody to talk about is an all time. Great. He's not a superstar and it's rare that a guy like this. Has the type of game. He has last night he's on the floor with two of the top five or six players in the world. One Who's in our book? The second best of all time is still playing well near the top of his game. I. Some people think he's the best ever Lebron and he goes for forty points. He's the best player on the floor. Last night thirteen assists eleven boards two steals two blocks, fourteen of twenty from the floor. And harder. Brian Rob here's the kicker. Abyan Love A and Lebron total. Go for forty points, fifteen boards, eleven assists two steals two blocks or sixty, five percent shooting. He equaled both of them, but he wasn't just better than them individually last night, but he actually equal both of them. Props. The Jimmy Butler is not going to matter they're gonNA lose in five, but promise to the young man. I don't know about that from this standpoint. This is the only thing Chris that I just wonder. That was a weird game to me I just I. D- getting foul trouble early. Lakers just didn't seem to be I mean remember. Miami still without forty percent of their starting line-up. That should not even with Jimmy Butler doing what he did. Chris they still shouldn't win that game. No. Was Yes and I think it was more I mean they should of the Lakers just play like garbage Bosch. Now. You, know like what they? Have the case but I'm just saying that's the thing that is like, Whoa, they still should not Jimmy Butler hats off Great Game Chris Nobody's taking anything away from him. But forty percent of your starting lineup is out injured no, you shouldn't have a chance. But I don't know it was just the game had a weird field to me. I know you have to. Put on a brave face I, mean, you went out there on a limb. You pick the heat to win in six I think, right? Why do know? Seven game fairy tale pick I'm not well. So you know you gotta I get it. You GotTa Follow Your Narrative and act like you believe in and want to know the game it'll be different if next game I. Mean They win the Game War. I still don't see when the series but you know I it becomes interesting. I mean because there will you know how it is rob there will be a lot of people say, Oh, like you know what I mean like thinking the heat will win. And and who, Hey, if you win two at the first floor I, guess you got every right to think that no matter what the rosters are like. So I, think though AD. For. Some odd reason is prone to these types of games where not only are they low production games but he just doesn't even get engaged against Portland. In the first round he had a game we took eight shots. Against Houston is. The game you took nine shots and he took thirteen shots against Denver the last three games I mean he just forgot how to rebound. He actually had a to rebound game and two five rebound games just terrible. Yes. So Right and I'll give I'm GONNA say this the Lakers did not. Try to establish him early either Lebron was forcing stuff being a little too aggressive. I like when he's aggressive, he was over the top. Why had eight turnovers four late for early when he was trying to do too much and that they should have came out and did what they've done the first few games which get. Ad Going especially rob against this team because they got no size. In a why world wouldn't you continue to feed the beast ad, get him going and Lebron can get in where he fits in and do his thing. So they got away from that they took forty two threes out a seventy nine shots, which is unusual for them. They're not a three point shooting team. So they got away from new sales, but you're right look if you want. If you're hoping this becomes a series or your pick Miami, it's all about game for they lose. Obviously it's over no Denver Nuggets revivals here, but if they win. Now, we got a little drama and injury. No doubt about it it'll be interesting to just to see in that a lot of people thought it would be over four I. don't think that you thought it would be I picked five. Now I know you pick five but the game last night was I didn't know what that was. That's all it just. Would you make? You think that Tyler Heroes Snarl should scare the Lakers. That's like Eh. Bryant. Finley. Snarling. It just it just it just wasn't. It just didn't have the desired effect. I don't think I mean. I'm just guessing call it a hunch. Scared the Lakers keep.

Dan Quinn And Bill O'Brien Fired. Cleveland Browns Are For Real. The Terrible NFC East.

"Welcome into one and done radio wherever you are. However, you are listening what it's on iTunes SoundCloud Spotify off automatic. IHeartRadio. Tuna, Stitcher Pandora popcorn Avi Google Playlist Amazon music and anything else that is out there. Thanks for making one. I've done radio of part of your day lots that goes on in this episode. I talked about the recent firings between the Houston Texans and Atlanta Falcons game firing their head coaches. And then the Cleveland Browns actually look like they are for real. And finally I am the show talking about the NFC East how it's probably the most Crazy division that's happening right now because no one seems to have a real grasp on it. I know it's early but I still talked about us all that on the show. Let's go off. So what's up by talking about the gray performance of the Los Angeles Lakers just to start off finding a way to wield their team to win an NBA title tied for most all time with the boss until the against the Boston Celtics LeBron James finals MVP is one for as long and times Four Winds, six losses and my opinion. I'm not saying he's the greatest of all time. Maybe he but he started to make his case. But I wanted to talk about obviously great things happening with them Frank Vogel great coach just seemed like the right guy for the team. I know people can probably say, oh naked one with anybody's head coach, and I don't think that's the case. Now we're going from a team like the Lakers to a team that was in the Super Bowl and lost and that would be the Atlanta Falcons few years back a big lead Blewett 28 to 3. We all remember that but let's take a look at the whole situation with Dan khong em with albums. Let's talk about the whole round about and I'll get into Bill O'Brien in the Houston Texans and what it means for both teams of fire their coaches. So it comes to Dan Quinn great coach for the time being when he was with the Falcons and led them to the Superbowl could not hold a lead multiple times. This song could not hold a lead. defense a man who was a defensive coordinator for the legion of boom with Richard Sherman Kam Chancellor Earl, Thomas Batman could not control his defense in Atlanta a man that defensive mind could not make it happen for the Atlanta Falcons. So now we're talking about the Falcons as far as what what do we do from here? What do we how do we move on from here? And it's simple fact of the matter is you just maybe a start to rebuild. Listen their own five. They have a one in game. Okay, I'm not saying that it's the teen of it have right now is a full-on sole reason why they are the way they are off cuz there's a lot of factors that goes into it when it comes to coaching players the organization in general. I mean heck the Washington Redskins have a terrible organization, but they're still at least one game this year. So there's so many factors that can place into play and honestly, you can look and say maybe the Redskins wash it the Washington who I said Washington Redskins. I mean, I got retract all that the Washington football team, even they have one again. With their talent that my opinion doesn't seem to match up to what the Falcons have talent wise. So I think that when it comes to talent and coaching and the organization all those can play a factor plus I truly believe that they never recovered from that Super Bowl wage. A lot of teams do that was a mental breakdown and I know there's been a few seasons since that Super Bowl happened I get that but you have that lead it can stay with you mentally and now Dan Quinn no longer the head coach Raheem Morris is going to be the interim head coach and now there's the Arthur Blank has come out and said he has to see about Matt Ryan and I wanted to talk about this. I saw some people on social media saying Who Matt Ryan's not the reason and no one's really sitting there saying he is I'm not that Ryan is not the reason why this team is owned five. Is he a part of it? Yes, but is he the sole reason absolutely not. There's so many factors again. However dead Let's take a look at the future Matt. Ryan's 35 years old. Okay, he's probably got a few years left movie three depends on that level he's playing at so if we're going to keep Matt Ryan around for three years. Or should we go in the draft? Should we go and try and get a Trevor Lawrence? Should we go and try again Justin fields or a trade Lance to lead this team to be the focal point of the future. Just take that first second. And the best example I can say is looking back at what happened to Peyton Manning and the Andrew Luck situation with the coals paint manning was coming back from a neck injury next surgery pretty much dead. And they didn't know Ozzy how much longer he had left to play. So they and then there was talks maybe they could bring both on salary cap wise but the Colts did a complete rebuild Ryan grigson and Chuck Pagano came in they let go off Dallas Clark Gary Brackett. They let go of Joseph Addai. They let go a bunch of pieces. They kept Reggie Wayne and they let go of Peyton Manning. And what happened for as much as I wanted get on Ryan grigson for how bad he was to the for the organization. He still was able to help rebuild a page was kolstein that did something playoffs at the playoffs after playoffs. They continue to make it was the offensive line. Terrible. Absolutely, but they continue to at least make a run somehow. And I think when you start to see a complete like tear down get rid of Matt Ryan we get rid of other pieces. Well, don't bring back Todd Gurley would just draft you just to see that it gives hope yes your team doesn't look good for maybe a year or two. However, you don't have to get rid of everybody just guys that maybe don't you don't see in the future? I think Julio Jones is a guy he had to keep around based on what he can bring as a player. I don't know about Matt Ryan because if you can get a Trevor Lawrence, why would you want to keep Matt Ryan around because you know, why if he if he has a bad game you're stuck with him or you're going to hear from the fans wherever they're going to be. We don't know if they're going to be on the field or be with the team next year, but you're still going to hear from the media saying put Trevor Lawrence in and that's just not what's a corn dog wants to deal with when they are the starter. So a rebuild my opinion should happen just because it wasn't paid Manning playing bad when the Colts moved on from him. They just knew we can get rid of him cuz he may be off a couple of years left or were you bring in Andrew Luck. I know it it lasts a long plugged in longevity of far as what they want, but we could at least try and keep them for the whole ten fifteen years. You get a longer sustain success. Why not? Try and build that I think the Falcons should least do that now going to the Texans with Bill O'Brien that I had to happen. You are the GM your offense looks terrible. They finally got a window without him. Isn't that I thought that was hilarious. They were own former fire Bill O'Brien and said we're done with you. We are going to move on you were the GM you were the coach. You couldn't get it done. We gave you all the power to build your team. And you couldn't do it you trade away DeAndre Hopkins. You pretty much got nothing for him besides a David Johnson and a second-round pick whoop-dee-doo. DeAndre Hopkins is in probably the number one receiver in the game and you gave him up for nothing. And so all you had to do was go have success. Yes. Your first two games were against Kansas City and Baltimore to very tough matchups. No one's going to question that but you didn't look good and either one if you were play Closing those games. I bet you were still have a job Bill O'Brien. But you didn't play good and congrats on getting the win against Jacksonville a team. That's also now one and four along with you guys. However, moving forward and now you have a Romeo Crennel as interim head coach oldest coach in the NFL. So Texans find you a coach that can be developed DeShaun Watson. I don't know if I'm just late to this hype train or the hype party for the Andre the Sean Watson scuse me off. I don't know if I'm just lay I just don't see it what everyone else sees as far as I've seen people put him as a top-five cornerback. No top 10. Yeah, and I get it always has line. He's my life hasn't made so many plays. I understand that. But as far as seeing the great plays from DeAndre or from Deshaun Watson, I just don't see it. I get it. He had a great game against Jacksonville this past week three touchdowns 360 yards throwing I get that I just don't see what a lot of people see yet. And I maybe it's because now he doesn't have DeAndre Hopkins. He doesn't have as a great offensive line. Maybe if you build that he will. a time will tell and just when you look at these two teams. Head coaches have to be great. Okay, a GM there's so very few guys. There's not a lot of guys that are great head coaches and and GM's Bill Belichick is the best one in the game right now. Let's just let's just established he finds Talent he brings him in he coaches him and they have success. Bill Belichick knows what taste to be a GM and head coach Some is Bill O'Brien. What do you do one year at Penn State was like it was like a year or two. He was at Penn State and that was it and turn around. All he did was take over for a program. That was yeah, it was coming off a very horrific turn of events. I don't see Bill O'Brien hasn't guy maybe the offense of coordinator maybe but as far as the guy was going around program. What was it? What was he doing in Houston? What do they do? Oh, they want to maybe a playoff game here and there a couple of games. That's it. Terrible. And I just don't see Bill O'Brien's that coach and don't see Dan Quinn as a head coach anymore. There's some guys that get fired and you can maybe see them come back and be a head coach. I just don't see that from either one of these guys going forward. So as a Colts fan, it was great to see my team get embarrassed choice. That is I'm not going to rant too much about the Colts game because I don't want to and because if I do that I'm going really rant on for days and days and hours and hours. But I'm not going to do that. I'm just going to say this week and then I'm going to get into the Cleveland Browns. Just want to talk about how they are for real. Let me talk about the Colts home. Okay? What do I start Philip Rivers? I'm sorry. I look terrible two interceptions. Both are very costly and a safety. You lost by nine points you threw a pick-six and a safety. What are those Eco the extra point included nine points? Thank you Philip Rivers and Frank right? I get he's trying to see both back his quarterback. I understand but he I mean he cost us the game. Week should have won that game or at least had a better shot at winning him. And I we had a an offensive line that I was out. Anthony castonzo was out huge loss to the offensive line. And I just want to talk about and say that was Moravian clock is not ready to be a starting left tackle. That's why he's a backup got destroyed by Myles Garrett who worked him two thousand miles gear. He only had a sack but if you watch the game, you just saw getting the radiant Clark's getting beat. Yes, Phil probably have a lot of time. However, Philip Rivers just you're starting to seem change a little bit. I'm not calling for Jacoby Brissett or Jacob Eason yet because they are still in the playoff race. I just don't know if Phil's the guy for this year. Maybe took a one-year deal and they stick with the one-year deal cuz there's talks of oh, maybe they bring back for a second year know. How about we just do the one-year deal and we'll see how that goes. Now it's the Browns. I was one incident saying the first game of the year after we got embarrassed by Baltimore. I was sitting there saying this team is not good. It's the same old Browns the terrible they're going to be terrible but then a lot of us has didn't realize understand. It's Baltimore. It's the Baltimore Ravens who if they once they get a lead Lamar Jackson will hold the lead guy comes to training get for the Ravens to go and get a lead. They can't do it, but it comes to getting the lead that would be fine. I realize account would be like a oxymoron right there. But I think you understand what I'm saying right now for the Browns back to them what you're seeing from the Browns and I know Baker threw two interceptions, but for the most part they understand that they don't want him to do too much with lean on the running game the red ball thirty three times. They threw the ball they had Bakersfield about thirty seven times. So keep it balanced don't overwork him don't have him do too much. Let him continue to do what he needs to do to win to help you win games. Let's just be not a game manager because I know he's not really that but he's not something that they're going to force to do too much to carry them on the back throwing the football. They know what they have right now is a baker's look better compared to last year baker has actually looked pretty good. Now when it comes to what he has you should look good. Let's look at the Browns and this is I think the Browns are going to make it bleeds up wild card berth for sure. Probably you can place the case now watch watching the games and who they drafted as well. You can probably make the case of the at the Browns have the best offensive line in the NFL. They are building cohesion. They're working together on this offensive line. Now when it comes to the weapons, you have Kareem hunt with Nick Chubb when he comes back Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham Austin Hooper David ngoku. I mean this they're just had weapons for days and that's how I look at this browse offense and defense lovely. They already have talent again wage war miles gear both have two great players Sheldon Richardson as well great players have on the on the defensive side the football. This team has a very bright future when everything clicks. They are for one for the first time. I don't even remember when the last time they were for and why didn't know if I was born. I think I was born. I don't even know but it wasn't watching but I guess I don't know my point the end. This is this the brand of the legit. Let's just let's get that out there. Okay. I know they haven't beaten a lot of people as far as if you look at their schedule, but this was probably their biggest test was the Colts I mean I guess is maybe shows the Colts who they really are. But if you look at the winds is Cincinnati, Washington Dallas Cincinnati Bengals. We know what they're doing. Not much Washington football team we get they're not doing much in Dallas Cowboys zero defense and then the Colts now you got a good win against a teenage supposed to be really good the Colts. However, just Did not rise to the occasion in the Browns have and they're looking really good going forward and I just think that personally they're going to be a wild-card team. I don't need a right to take a whole of the division with the Ravens and the Steelers but making the Wild Card definitely in the future for the Cleveland Browns for a fan base. That's just dying to have the Cleveland Browns. They're in the playoffs and closing the show. I got talk about the NFC east and just how I don't think it's like crazy or just what's happening. But the NFC East just looks all over potato credit but his game he won't talk about each team really quick and easy there big headlines from NFC East number one. Let's start with this past weekend. Let's start with the Dallas Cowboys terrible loss right now with What's it called? Terrible loss with Dak Prescott looked I mean just a gruesome ankle injury. You can see the emotion you can see the tears just a guy that just wasn't ready to try and take that next step with this offense and just what just gruesome injury right now the Cowboys I think with Andy Dalton they are in good hands as far as what he brings a guy who was a starter on offense with plenty of weapons. So now we're we're looking at we're looking at Andy Dalton and you're looking at a quarterback that is ready for this moment and think you'll be they'll be fine again, Washington now. What crazy situation with the quarterback situation? Okay, first off Dwayne Haskins was benched and I don't want people to think when people make this like a race thing. Like I'm sorry, it's just dead. Twin Haskins is just not playing the way he should be right now. And there's I guess there's a lot of people that I say. Well, he hasn't had a lot of time. He's got the tools and yet he definitely does God. What are we going to sit there and say that he should be starting right now because these Washington football team in Ronald, they're all know. They actually have a chance right now. Win the division. They have a chance you want to watch because the Dallas Cowboys are two and three and the in the next the Washington football team has won win so they are literally one game out of first place. Solar are we ready to sit there and say should we not put Dwayne Haskins in or Sweden? Not try and figure out the best quarterback for the team. Kyle Allen was playing pretty decent wage. He got the concussion and then Alex Smith came in. He looked fine mese took a hit and took some hits but he looked fine. But as far as being a consistently throwing the ball down the field, I think he's going to have a get adjusted. Ron Rivera just knows Dwayne Haskins is just not there yet. I don't like listen run the Bears a great coach. I don't want anyone else to take what he's done. He's literate interested, but he he's stuck with Kevin when teams and media whatever or players wanted him benched because he was a struggling be stuck with it last year. He can't do have that foot injury. That was the problem last year. I don't think Ron Rivera is sitting there thinking Dwayne Haskins is just I'm just going to bench and because I think you just understands that he's just not ready. The guy played one year in college. Not everyone is ready for that. Look at what Mitchell trubisky did one year of college banished didn't do nothing Mark Sanchez is only played one year in college played said in the NFL LED this just to back-to-back AFC championships. Some guys are just ready to come out right away compared to others. And Dwayne Haskins just right now probably doesn't have the mental ability of the mental capacity to handle it. Do we sit there and say my God, this guy's a star? No. Do I want to see him develop? Yeah, I actually do a Michigan fan, but I want to see him develop do I think he's an NFL starter? I do but some guys just sometimes have a sit back and watch the game. Think about it you're thrown into the game. You're not ready, but you have to go in and now you're like my gosh these guys move faster. Think about what it takes to be an NFL quarterback on a consistent basis for some guy like Trevor Lawrence is probably going to come in the NFL and he's going to be fine, Joe burrow he's off. He's playing fine Baker. He's playing now. He's playing fine, but some guys just it takes years in college to get that experienced Dwayne one year. And the jivin pretty decent right now with Daniel Jones. I'm not saying they're winning but I'm saying that they may be fine for the future with Daniel Jones and people were questioning that pic. I'm not questioning. I'm not questioning wrong. To the Giants by the way, terrible over five. That's all I can say. I mean, I don't know what else to say. Offensively inept without saquon didn't look good with him. I think it's just I don't know JoJo's you have to figure this one out cuz this team looks pretty bad pretty early. And then from Philadelphia play against the Steelers Pratt tough, but just wasn't able to get the win. But this the thing with the NFC East it is by far the worst division in the NFL the worst no team division looks good. But the Cowboys are now are two and three terrible defense the worst defense in the NFL and they're two and three want to why cuz they'd beat the fricking Falcons and their beat them Giants and guess how many wins those team have zero they r o n 10 so they can beat the terrible teams.

See? On this week's special bonus addition of the Adam Schefter podcast, we sit down with the Baltimore Ravens. Hey, coach John Harbaugh whose team has endured a tumultuous off season as well as the Houston Texans. Ed coach Bill O'Brien whose team is suffered some losses of its own. But I the ravens head coach John Arba quite an off season for the Baltimore Ravens. I did not expect to see that much turnover. I have to say did it surprise you. How much your defense in particular has turned over the thing? Adam that you learn after many years is that never be shocked by being shocked by what happens at because you never know. You know, you never know who's going to get paid or or who's going to decide they want to go somewhere else, or you're gonna have an opportunity to bring in you know, it's just crazy that way, and it was that way for us this year. Look, no, Terrell suggs knows Daria Smith. No, CJ Moseley. No, Eric Weddell. How many those guys did you think had a chance to come back? Why didn't think we'd lose Terrell? Suggs, you know, that's the biggest thing in Quetta was was the decision that was made by the club for cap reasons. You know, so a love both those guys and they're not here. And that's just moving forward. How about CJ Moseley that was was going to be tough maybe to keep it just depends on free agents. He's a great player, you know. And there's there are a lot of guys that a lot of cap space, and and whatever the number you think is right or wrong. It really doesn't matter. It's what he's able to get you can't blame CJ for for taking care of his family way, did, but we just didn't have the kind of cap opportunity that jets, and we talked about this where it seemed like Ray Lewis past that defensive mantle leadership to Edry who passed it to Terrell suggs. And I thought she g motza who gets does it Thomas your new safety takeover. They will have a mantle, you know, the Manto is not something that we have in our building anywhere. So I like show me the man. Leader, John who's the defensive leader whoever Burgess, you know. And it's it's that that's the great thing about it. I mean leadership is not something that's bestowed on anybody. You can't pass a mantle onto it. So they have to earn it. And I think all those guys over the years of the guys that took that on earned it, and we're respected for the reasons they were respected and a yo certainly do that in the in the jets, and and somebody has some number of guys will do that for us. We have a lot of great leaders. I mean, Tony Jefferson jumps into my head is a guy that leads, by example, and works hard. And I think we have a lot of guys like that. What is your Thomas going to bring to the defense? He's not bringing a mantle. He's he's. But he does. This guy he roams afield e we all know what kind of player, so he brings all that to us. I was excited to get him thrilled to get him. Eric went brought so much to us. I mean, I love Eric what I love his family. Love the way played. He allowed us to play defensive certain way last year. We were able to do some things on the field that other teams are not able to do we were smart enough to understand how to build a system that allows a guy like that to thrive and we're going to build on that system. And we think Earl can thrive in that system to in his way. And I think he's smart and tough and you'll figure out how to make adjustments for. So we'll Tony other guys will have to take that mantle on and make those kinds of judgments force in real time. But hey, Earl Thomas is a different player than Eric. Well, so he'll do it his way. And we all know what that way is. And I'm looking forward to seeing it on the offensive side of the football. How did you see the development of Lamar Jackson over the course of his rookie year? And what do you expect me to sake near perfecting a big jump? Like you do for any player. You know, all those second year guys. Hayden hers, Mark Andrews, Orlando Brown, you go down the list. I'm expecting all those guys take big jumps. And there's no reason that Lamar shouldn't be exactly that kind of guy. And he's a. Quarterback. He works hard at it. Plus, it's really our responsibility in so many ways to build an offense around him and with him that he can thrive in and that's going to be a little different than the standard. You know? It's one thing to build a standard the role the playbook and throw it on the table and say we've been doing this for ten years, and this is our system. That's not what we're doing. We're building this up. Just like we did last year with our defense. We're building up from from the ground up and rebuilding everything. Every word every term every concept is rethought and re reorganized, and it's it's it's because we need to be able to do a lot of a lot of multiple different. We're gonna we're gonna live in a lot of different worlds on offense. And we need to build a Bill system that our guys can operate in those worlds effectively in real time, and you know, make place so we're going to see a different ravens offense in two thousand nineteen and we've seen. Oh, absolutely. And what will be the biggest difference that we see we'll without giving anything on you'll see? And and you know, it's it's it's hard to sit there. And just explain what exactly but I can tell you this. We're going to live in in different aspects of football back pass downhill running game RPI. Oh triple option type run game play action pass wide zone plays. We're going to be doing a lot of different things to keep people off balance create numbers advantages force. I think Greg in our offense of coaches excel at that. And we'll see where takes us. How do you like to these leading up to the draft that we get now? How do I like those days? I love them. I really have it sooner. I wish we had the draft. You know this next weekend. You know, let's roll ready. But. You ready? Like, you could do the draft today could be if we needed it to be it could be absolutely. Yeah. I mean, let's see I'd rather get the players. I'd rather we we could get the board ready are scouts doing a phenomenal job the coaches have their role. But you know, the coaches don't need to be that involved in let the coaches coach draft the players sooner get him in here sooner. And let the coaches go to work on helping those guys become NFL players. Do you any idea right now of some of the guys that you think you could envision as both more ravens? I got my list the rear every year. Of course, how many guys are on the list for my list right now about seventy seventy let's allot. Well, that's a list, and how many do you never know who you're gonna chance to draft. So usually you get seven guys realist every year. Right. I mean, it's gotta be the same thing year after year. Right. What I will say this is the bigger year draft wiser more players on the draft board this year than other years. So my list is probably a little bigger than it is in other years, but a good year for the draft. And what are the attributes of John Harbaugh play on that draft? You see him on the field. Describe do they play both hard-nosed smart, greedy. That's it. You know, what that's the biggest compliment you could pay a coach right there. You nailed the type of players that he likes. That's what it's all about. Last thing before I let you go John house machine. It'd be in two thousand nineteen national champs. Gal guaranteeing it makes you feel that it's easy for me to do. I mean, I'm sitting over here watching him fan. You know, now gyms doing a great job. And I think they're gonna be really good John. Thanks, dante. Appreciate it. Good in the dress with your seventy guys. Thanks. We'll be back in a moment with Bill O'Brien. And don't forget to check out. The meantime show featuring Lenny it's NFL draft month. And what a difference a year makes last year. Meena wasn't a huge fan of Josh Allen. Now, she loves him on this week's episode Meena talks quarterbacks and pass rushers.

That's as museum to reboot truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. And Nelson fire happens all the time. It's all good. Geico. Fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Or here. A Bill O'Brien the Houston Texas, head coach Bill an interesting time of the year where pass free agency getting ready for the draft. How do you like this time of the year compared to some of the others? I love it. You know, you're able to especially relative to the draft you really able to sit down with guys get to know him go to a few colleges. See how some of the colleges are doing things meet the guys at the colleges, and then bring them into your organization, and I think it's all about the team building process. You know, we come together when we get back from this will have draft meanings. Coaching staff scouting staff coming together on what we feel is best for the team relative to what we've seen. So I think it's a great time of the year. It's a lot of fun fridge. Issues was a tough time for the Houston Texans. They're lost Kareem. Jackson lost the Honey badger to the Kansas City Chiefs. But you also added Bradley Roby to Shawn Gibson. How would you assess where your secondary is at coming out of free agency and heading into the draft. You know, it's tough to lose those two guys Kareem, you know, spend his whole career in Houston all five years with me. He did a lot force, you know, played safety play corner played nickel dime. Great teammate. But that's for agency. You know, you try to do the best you can to represent your organization in the best way. And you know, Denver had a really good offer for him. And he took it Honey badger came in one year did a great job for us. Great and locker room good. Good guy. Another guy that had a great opportunity with the Kansas City Chiefs. So now, you have to have okay, here's plan. A we're going to try to do what we can get these guys back. If we don't here's here's here's where we're going to go. And it's not like it's this plan is worse than that plan. There's a lot of good players out there. So we we felt really good about our study of Bradley Roby being able to come in. And do some of the things that he didn't Denver play man coverage play outside corner play inside corner. Some if we need them there and had a lot of good reports on them. You know, we were able to sign it to a one year deal and then with to Shawn Gibson. We studied him a lot having gone against them. You know, cover tight ends, man. Man, you know, played a deep part of field played down in the box. So we feel like we added a safety there that can really help us. So we're we feel pretty good about where we're at how hard is it to lose guys though cream. Jackson was something of a cornerstone for the franchise Honey badger came in to lose guys like this and just go have to replace him a little bit like college. I guess where graduate. It's tough. Somebody somebody inside asked me about that. You know, I'm I'm. You know, I get pretty attached to the players. I really enjoy coach in those guys. You know, you have a lot of great moments in the locker room and in the in the meeting rooms and not on the practice field. And obviously on the game on the gains that we won. So it's always tough, you know. But that's that's part of pro football. You try to, you know, look at where you're at from a cap standpoint what you can do what you feel like the value of the player is relative to your team. And then you just do the best job. You can't make the best decision for the team. And that's what we've tried to do one of the places you'll shut to plug a hole so to speak. He's at wide receiver lose marriage Thomas last year you suffer the injury to willfuller Danja Hopkins. Seems like you perpetually looking for another guy there and cuties struggle with the hamstring injuries. What do you do opposite Deandra Hackman's? How do we say that that's a big? That's a big deal. I mean when those three guys fuller, obviously, hop fuller and Cutie were on the field, which wasn't very often. But when they are on the field at the same time. It was a very productive offense. I mean, we. For over thirty points a game. And those guys really really did a great job of working on their chemistry with Sean and all those things so injuries are not an excuse. But those things happen. So will is on the way back. We feel really good about. Where will is right now. We feel really good about where q t is q t last year was no training for the combine came in, you know, hadn't played football in a while and had some hamstring issues that he didn't have in college. We we've tried to fix that on our side, and he's fixing it with himself. And I think he's in a better place right now. I think he's going to really help us. And then like I said Fuller's on the right track. And then we're going to see what goes on in the draft. And we have some good young guys behind those guys that we feel good about the fours the fives that we think can help us. So we'll see how it goes this full or have any chance to be ready by training camp. I think so I really do. I think there's a there's a chance for that. I'm not gonna put a date on it. But I do think with the way he's progressing and work in in there every day. I think he's got a shop. So if you have Hopkins. And you now. Oh, you should be pretty set there. It's a good position. But there are some unknowns. Like, you're you're asking what you're, you know, really good questions because of the injury situation, but I do feel good having seen these guys over the last month or so around the building talk specifically QT in fuller. I feel good about where they're at. What is the Sean watching ceiling? I don't think he has a ceiling atom. I think that I think that it's hard to put a ceiling on a guy like that. Because of who he is how he works. His ability skill set his passion for the game. I mean, the guy's really fun. Got a coach works very hard to learn the game. I think there's a lot of things you can do to improve. He knows that. We know that we're going to try to improve things around him. He's working hard to, you know, improve his knowledge defense improved his his mechanics, you know, the way that he processes information all those things. So I don't think there's a ceiling fan just curious when you go back that data detours AC on practice. Your team is rolling along. We're doing pretty rolling along and other tough. They I remember get. The word and it was shocking. Like, you just don't hear about an injury like that. And you know, what to hear about an injury like that too? At that time. I would say the most exciting young player in the game and your team was rolling towards the postseason, and then everything seemed to get derailed. What do you remember about that day that was you know, we were practicing, and he was just running kind of a simple little play kind of a bootleg type play out to his right, and he just planted Nolan around him because usually these are non contact injuries. And he came back, and he said, hey, something clicked their and doesn't feel right. And we took them right away marine that was it, and I was tough. Because like you said we were very productive. We were exciting and we were moving in the right direction. And you know, it was at that point for us. So it's tough to tough to overcome that loss. You know, we had other guys injured too. You know, so, but then, you know, the one thing if you look forward to where we are. Now, he has had now this season full off season of no, limitations. And coming back to off season program, full go can do everything training camp full go last year that wasn't the case. You know, he couldn't he was limited in training camp limited in the off season program. So now he he'll have a full off season, which I think will be big show. How much of a difference does that mean, I think it makes a big difference? I think you know, if you look at last year all he could do off season program was like seven on seven no eleven on eleven training camp. No eleven on eleven you know, he did a little bit. But not as much then we've played him a little bit in games, you know, to try to get them back in the in the in the routine of playing in games and getting ready for games. And I think this year he'll be able to do, you know, obviously, a lot more. And I think that'll help us with the timing of the passing game with his improvement individually and help our team to have them out there every day Bill random question, you spent time in the patriots organization how much longer do you think? Tom Brady's gonna wind up playing for. I mean, there is no way on putting a limit on that one. I mean, the guy is defied the odds. I mean, he's it's incredible. It'll never I don't. I mean, I guess you would say never say never. But I don't know if that will ever be done again what he's done. I mean to to to play at that level for so long and be in his forties. And really, you know, having another great season last year at whatever it was forty forty one years old. I mean, it's incredible. You know when I was there. I was fortunate enough to be around him and coach them and work with them. And he just does everything the right way. You know, he he takes care of his body the right way, he's a great teammate, obviously. And he really works soft on the on the practice field and off the field. And so I think there's I don't know. I have no idea. So does the AFC. No shot the division. It seems like it's amazing. I made it just it's hard to describe you know, what he's been able to do. But when you're around them, you know, I know you've been around him a lot. You know, you just it's kind of interesting. You know, people say, can you believe it, can you know, I can believe it. I've been around him. I've seen him. He's the best. And he's a great guys, very, very smart and he works hard. And he knows how to he knows how to take care of his body. And he knows what he needs to do to be ready to play loves playing. And we'll be your memory of rob gronkowski as he walks away from the game though, maybe comes back. Maybe you know. I have great memories of rob. I I was I had rob his first two years. And he was just a he we'll get to the skill set a second. He was a great guy. You know, when he walked into the building the building literally lit up. I mean, he had great energy awesome sense of humor had a great relationship with Bill. We love coaching them. He Tom loved them right away. The team did you know how? Rookies when they come in initially just had a way about him. That was interesting and everybody loved it. And then the skill set, you know, when he would be out on the practice field. You know, the catch radius his ability to run his flexibility his instincts, and then he brought a level of toughness to our team because he could block the edge. And he really he really helped us in that regard. And I think he's he's the whole the total package at that position. I know you're not betting, and you don't have any inside knowledge. But you think we've seen the last of him in a football uniform. I don't know I it's twenty nine years old. I just knowing him, you know, for the first two years when he was in the league, he'll he'll miss it. He loves it loves being in the locker room. That's what these guys miss. They missed the the teammates and the the day to day routine. So it'll be interesting. That's what I could see I could see the season getting into November's war. Tom calls him out says gronk helpless for the postseason even come back late December. He just be part of the play offs. And might be tempting. I could you know, it's funny. When these when these guys retire I've been around, you know, Andre Johnson now and as a head coach in Arian foster guys like that they do you can tell they definitely they met. Chris myers. You know, they missed the game because they missed the the relationships with their teammates and their coaches in the people in the building. So I could see him getting CI and coming back Bill. Thanks for taking the time to look into draft special. Thanks to Bill O'Brien there the Houston Texans head coach as well. As the ravens. Hey, coach John Harbaugh who took some time out of their busy schedules to give us some time here on the Adam Schefter podcast.

Inside the Bubble with Malika Andrews for NBA Finals Game 4

"Good a forty point triple double tonight in an NBA finals game. That is the best game of your career so far what was your mindset throughout every minute when? I don't care about a trip. I don't care about. I. Really. Don't. I, WANNA win. We did that I'm happy with alcohol. That was the Miami Heat's Jimmy Butler who in a must win game Sunday. Put up an NBA finals performance for the agents. But with Lakers still up to two one and injuries plaguing the heat roster are butlers heroics too little too late. Or is this the start of yet another shocking Miami Rod? Today ESPN's Maliki Andrews brings us deep inside the bubble ahead of game four and reflects on what she's learned from covering the strangest NBA postseason ever. I'm Pablo. Torre it's Tuesday October sixth. This. Is ESPN. Melita what day is, how long have you been inside this bubble? Well, I know Wednesday is one hundred days while. So, let's count backwards. So we are talking on day carry the. Day Ninety Eight Ninety Eight yikes Maliki Andrews has been inside BNB bubble from the beginning. I caught up with her yesterday afternoon. Where are you right now? I'm in my hotel room I sprinted back here. The buses only run every half hour between the arena and the hotel. So I took the three thirty bus back from the availability of the Miami Heat and the Lakers back here. But I remember I hadn't gotten tested today. So then I hustled to get my Cova test and now here I am. A Standard Order of operations for Melita on Day Ninety Eight. So you mentioned you just came from availability with the heat and the Lakers and. Look the Miami Heat, that is a team that maybe thought they were gonNA leave the bubble sooner than they actually are the Lakers are up two games to one Miami is going to try to even the series in game four. So before we talk about game four I, want to ask you about game three because there was a historical enormous throwing the adjective here performance from Jimmy. Butler. In a truly must-win game, a triple double forty points thirteen assists eleven, rebounds. How would you describe ballers performance on Sunday? We'll I. I think if you Pablo were to ask the Miami Heat about leaving the bubble or if they were on track to leave the bubble sooner than they initially thought I think that they would have said they always thought that they were going to. Shock the world prove people wrong. Whatever sports trope you want to put in their? Jimmy Butler doesn't like to be called an underdog I. Just don't think that we're underdogs don't. So what nobody picked to be here That's okay British. To win even that's okay but we understand we embraced it. We were sort of joking after game three. What do you want to be called then and I pulled up at the source and I suggested to him maybe dark horse was a better phrase for what he would like to be and he said, yeah, you know what I like that. Can we call it a a stallion I said no dark galley and I think we. Stay away from that. That's probably not. GonNa say but. My impression of Jimmy, butlers, historic performance by all these metrics in terms of pin being the first player to have that sort of night without shooting three pointer since Shaquille O'Neal in two thousand and two only the third player to have a forty point triple double the the list goes on and on. But to watch the heat in their post game interviews have to walk this line between on the one hand being incredibly excited about but not necessarily surprised over what Jimmy Butler was able to do in forty five minutes of play by the way, and also reckon with the fact that they are still down a game. In this series, they are still largely numerically not the favorites to overcome the hole that they've dug themselves into. That was kind of an interesting balance for them because it wasn't just a celebration of what Jimmy Butler did and I don't think that was just out of humility. They know that in the grand scheme of things one impressive night is good. But it doesn't change the makeup of this series. I want to get into what he'd coach. Erik Spoelstra said her Butler's performance. How else do you said other than Jimmy Butler? Is a supreme of eat competitor. And we needed. What is Jimmy? Butler meant Melita the identity of this particular Hammy heat team in this moment. On True Spo- way he did say effing that that wasn't even. That was a self edit in real time but during a game in an earlier round when I was a sideline reporter during the playoffs Erik Spoelstra told me. That one of the reasons why Jimmy fit so well with the heat is because of all of the reasons that other teams have run from or decided, they could not jive with him. So the fact Eric's bolster told me that Jimmy Butler is over the top. He said, good. We're over the top the fact that he cares and sometimes goes at his teammates verbally good. We care we go at each other verbally all of that seems to have fit have fallen into has fallen. into place for Jimmy because previously, his sort of I'm going to say what I want to say when I want to say it no matter what anybody else thinks or how they will respond that's gotten him in trouble but with this particular heat group because of the way that they're coached because of the way, their locker room is because they have you. Donna's house lemon these other guys setting that tone it bits it isn't this constant source of being offended. It's what makes them. and. So when Jimmy's able to have a performance like that, they're genuinely happy for him because there is really no sense in that locker room of or Jimmy Butler is that. It's when but ler is. There is a purpose for it and we're going to listen. I want to ask you about one of those alleged. Moments from Jimmy at the end of game three because Jimmy Butler makes this layup to put the heat up nine with just over a minute left to play in the game. What were dry the rotary fag? Sedan. Masterpiece from Jimmy Butler and the heat caught by nine with thirteen reverting. And I think he's saying they're in trouble. and. It looks like he says, you're in trouble right directly to Lebron James and illegal. You did the reporting on this you specifically asked Jimmy. About that quote what did he have to say? Well I wanted to make sure that that's what he said because it's sure looked like it and he said, yeah, that's what I said. Jimmy I. I just wanted to clarify it looked like you said you're in trouble is that what you said Rose Okay and then secondly you said last and then I moved onto ask him another thing and he he circled back and said first of all we neglect I'm just talking trash not bras ended I that's happened I just said it to him in the fourth quarter. Jimmy's recollection was that in the first quarter after he made a run, they got a big and in the Lakers two did what they do and they started chip away at that and Jimmy Alleges Lebron said to him you're in trouble, and so at the end of the game, Jimmy parroted back to Lebron. Jimmy is I'm not saying, Jimmy is an APP. I'm saying that there are people who have perceived his sometimes pompous sometimes cocky sometimes out their actions in a society that has decided that being meek is more polite, Jimmy everything that is not and. Finally in. Miami that fits. They also feed off of it I mean you're seeing rookies like tyler hero snarling his lip late in the game I mean you can't tell me that's not reminiscent of some sort of Jimmy Butler swag and she was six for eighteen by the way at twenty years old and to your point though what he felt it seemed to be. Powered by the alleged. Just. described. I think Jimmy would not say that he is an. He would say if people take my actions to be like. I don't care. So be it tell me I'm wrong. So. In terms of whether he is wrong on this. He said he said kind of prophecy right? You're in trouble what's going to determine that or would help determine it greatly is weather Bam out of bio and Gore and drudge or actually gonNA play in this game tonight Melita and both players have been out with considerable injuries since game one. So what's the latest you're hearing on their availability and how much is their absence being felt by Miami in this series? Well, their absences is huge I mean just from sheer. Size standpoint the Lakers when you look at them out on the floor, there's huge and to not have Bam on bio out there to just match them in the pain. Is is a two to Miami's detriment. Now they also know the heat know that they're not going to beat the Lakers at their big size game. Not Having Goran, not having that shooting not having that ability to be able to attack from the outside with him being such a reliable source of their offense. That's also a big thing that Miami is missing. On Monday Goran and Bam a bio spoke to reporters for the first time since their game one injuries and what I gleaned from that is that it is highly unlikely that they will play in game four. Now, neither one of them said that, but Bam on a bio had previously said and I he genuinely believed it on multiple occasions to different reporters I'm going to play in. Game Two I'm going to play in game three and he wants to he believes he can, and in his comments on Monday he said that if they tell me I am ready to go today tomorrow the next day I'll be ready as soon as they tell me. But really it's a medical staff decision I'm getting better you know is. Is Out to medical staff you know trying I'm trying to get back as quickly as possible. When I say I'm ready to play I'll be out there. That hesitancy deferring to the medical staff told me that he's ready is he's going to be, but he has to wait for someone else to say something and he also said that because it's a neck injury, they're being extra cautious uh-huh Goran on the other hand, he described his plantar. FASCIA injury. He said I snapped it is what he said and so that isn't going to be healed in this series the heat medical staff and Goran would have to make the decision to inject it and play through that injury in a very real sense. He isn't going to get better. They would just have to make the decision that it is worth it to play. I don't even really know where the Plantar Fascia is i. just know that when you said the word snapped, my entire foot just started radiating in sympathy and all of that Melita it sets the stage for what I think is going to be a deeply competitive game for so. Across the way. In the Lakers part of the bubble, what are you hearing from their side of things? They were incredibly confident after their game three loss. and. In many ways, their source of confidence is objectively correct. They didn't play well in game three that's just simply what it is and so because it's not just that they were outplayed, they were outplayed while they weren't playing near their highest level of basketball and even then they made several runs to close the sizable gaps that Miami was able to build. That probably should give them confidence Anthony Davis had one of the worst games he has ever had in the playoffs. Especially, if you're looking at the number of turnovers, he had the likelihood that he has that sort of game multiple times is probably not very high and you. Have to remember that Lebron James has said that before every game he looks at Anthony Davis and Anthony Davis has has said that this is kind of a a place where he gains confidence is Lebron looks at him and says, you are the best player in the world. If Lebron James is hyping you up and saying that before every game you're going to be going out there ready to run through wall you better believe he's going to be putting that on himself to try to do so moving forward and really when Anthony Davis is firing that's when the heat start to struggle and so if they can get back to that. The Lakers are likely going to start rolling again, and that's that's where they are feeling like we're not going to panic over this. How do you think this shakes out tonight what do you think is GonNa Happen. Well. You know better than to to ask me to make predictions. Do them well, and to I try to avoid doing them. Spoken like a true journalist Melita Andrews. I think the only thing I can guarantee is that. This game should be one of the best that we've seen because the Lakers are going to. Want to punch back and the he from. Jimmy Zone, words are not going to quote lay down. and. They WANNA tied at two two. It's going to be really really challenging the Lakers are the favorites for a reason when you look at them out on the court, they look like the favorites more minutes than the he does but. Game. Four has the potential to make this an interesting series where it was previously thought of as sort of open and shy. All right Malaika coming up I, WanNa talk about what you've learned after ninety eight days inside this massive experiment known as the NBA bubble and what you're feeling as you approach the variant. Last week is in the books, and now it's time to review the tape and prepare for this week, and there is no better place to get in on all of the action.

So Melita correct me if I'm wrong here. Are you the longest tenured media member inside the NBA bubble only a matter of hours Chris Haines arrived like. After I did but yes, Chris Haines Myself, Melinda Atoms and Jonathan. One of the TNT producers we all arrived on June twenty-ninth I. Think everyone else arrived July twelfth and then didn't get out of quarantine media members until July twentieth does it feel like I don't know like the end of summer camp I'm trying to figure out like from the outside. What it's like to be at the end or or near the end of the road of like the grandest scale science. Experiment that we may have ever see. I had a conversation with Adam silver, the other day, and he was asking me about. This experience because. I've I've kind of seen so many different iterations of the roles of. What this bubble is, and he asked me about how I felt about leaving and I sort of joked with him that I think I have a little bit of. I'm torn. I'm a little bit torn on the one hand. AM excited to go back to New York and ordering from my favorite Sushi restaurant but on the other hand. I genuinely think it may be the safest place in the United States right now and when I first got here I thought. There's no way that it can go as well as we know it is gone and when I leave here. I'm going to go back into the SURF hibernating the quarantining, the isolation that I was practicing before I came down here and so I sort of I told him I kind of have bubble Stockholm Syndrome I gotTA. Stay. But I, I, am fascinated like just describe what the bubble feels like. Now given that there are only two teams left out defiant. It's quiet. It was quiet when there were four teams. The spinal chapter of the bubble is actually much closer to the beginning because these last couple of days. Pablo we've actually seen sort of an uptick I was asked about. The safety protocols if they're still as rigid now were. Back, in in generally July. And the answer is yes but it wasn't always that way for about a month month and a half in sort of the middle things started to relax just a little bit. We have these proximity devices that we wear and for while the League wasn't enforcing wearing those for those of us who've been here while they broke, we lost them needed to replace them this that neither over the last week or so the NBA has started to enforce again when you show up for games, you must wear that we're getting more automated text messages all all read you one, please. From the League. So. Usually, this is the number to eight number text you at eleven o'clock pm or so if you haven't already gotten your Kobe tests to remind you to get a PCR tests and that's all I've ever heard from this number up until Friday. On Friday it's game two of the finals exclamation point reminder that following the health and safety protocols including mask-wearing and physical distancing helped us get here. We all want to finish strong throughout the finals. We'll be sending out regular reminders that promote healthy behaviors. On Saturday. Wearing a mask reduces the spread of covid nineteen carrying extra mask to be prepared and remember to keep your mask on outdoors unless you're walking by yourself. On Sunday game three tonight if you're headed the arena, remember your credentials and to test before you go at the arena, all spectators must wear their masks at all times. And today this one was my favorite spending time on the Destino lawn or by the pool today, please remember to maintain six feet of distance mothers even when outdoors. So we've seen over the last couple of days the sort of uptick in reminders and health and safety because we are almost at the finish line of this science experiment for lack of a better term, and they don't want it to crumble at the last minute. Do you think that the increase in those warnings and reminders is because of what's happening in our country at large right now well, it's an interesting dichotomy and I certainly wouldn't be surprised if that was part of it. People ask me why were masks on television in an empty arena when no one is around? One, there are people around that. You can't see there are people who were cleaning up the media tables. There is my producer that is not quite six feet away from me holding the the camera and setting everything up and being tested every day just confirms you don't have the virus, it doesn't prevent you from getting it. And so Adam silver when he was asked what he learned from this whole Syrians, he said that essentially science works doing those things works but. The day after Donald Trump. tweeted that he was positive for cove nineteen that was felt here in the bubble burst talking about it. It wasn't something that was this very distanced. Event that happens in that outside world it was we're closer to being in that outside world again than we have ever been. And this is what it's like. Melita. Somewhere between like. A time traveler and unfrozen caveman. I don't know which one you're going to reintroduce yourself into society and I wish I could offer you a lot more than Sushi when it came to out. Vibes. But but. When you describe that Feeling that, Fahd, honestly that you have for the bubble in your experience. I also, it's been tough. What's been the toughest challenge I mean there's been a lot of challenges for different reasons to be honest with you. I think that initially getting over the personal fear. Of Assuming risk. In leaving. My own home I hadn't been going out and going back to be around people again initially, that was challenging navigating the different rules of access was was challenging. We saw sort of adapt over the time we've been hearing it ended up that the access was far better than I initially feared it would be without us being able to go into locker rooms. So navigating that was challenging. The Bucks Hiatus was one of the. Most important stories I think that. Sports has had to reckon with in a long time because of the fact we are talking about a black man getting shot at the hands of the police. while. Corona virus was still raging is still raging across this country while these players are in a bubble what privilege that brings for them, how they reckoned with that. And then making the decision to continue to play, I, think all of that. was and continues to be an incredibly complex moment in history that will stand as important for a very long time. Narrower so Few Times. When Sports isn't the side dish. It's the meal and for these last few months, it wasn't the little brother of any newsroom it was on the forefront of. So, many people's minds because having this succeed. Gave people hope that if they follow what scientists are saying, there is a future that isn't. Overshadowed by fear of getting. Sick. and. So. As hard as it was to be inside this bubble and reckoning with your own guilt of being in a privileged position while world was going through some really trying times. It was also I mean it was a privilege to be able to. Do this and that's what makes me feel fulfilled. It's not the stat line of. Jimmy Butler, wow that was freaking incredible like awesome to watch was the that doesn't that that fills you up by even Jimmy it filled him up for a day. It's the lasting thing for him is winning the lasting thing for me is telling impactful stories and this has been a trove of impactful stories. The League Andrews, the longest tenured media member. In this science experiment, thank you again for joining ESPN daily. Thanks for having me Pablo and by the way I look forward to sending you some Sushi when you. Get back to the world. I'll even throw in the sea Urchin I'll. Be Yes only. Waiting for you Balik Andrews. Outside world what a generous soul. Coming up. The Houston Texans fired their head coach and GM yesterday and more than both of them are to blame. Here's another story I want you to know. The head coach of the Houston Texans Spill O'Brien. got fired yesterday, which at first seemed like something of a logic puzzle. The job of the general manager is to fire the head coach and. The general manager of the Texans? Well. That's also bill O'Brien. which is how Houston got into this whole mess in the first place. Head coach Bill O'Brien made. Of mistakes like when Houston led Kansas City twenty one nothing after the first quarter of the divisional round in January, only to lose fifty one to thirty one. But head coach Bill. O'Brien. was still a generally respected offensive mind. It was actually GM bill O'Brien. That mess things up for both of them. Because GM bill O'Brien was not simply terrible. Trading Away Stars like the Andrea Hopkins and Judean cloudy for seemingly personal reasons. Gm Bill O'Brien also had this massive conflict of interest. As an he was primarily interested in helping his head coach. Now it's no coincidence that almost all the best run franchises across sports are structured like the branches of government they worked together, but they also remained separate and bounce out each other's powers. Behead coach focuses on the near term and winning right now. And the general manager is theoretically verita take the long view to set the team up for success beyond the present. But in Houston. That view was only as long as the head coach's job secured. which was increasingly short and so O'Brien's front office mortgage the future last year trading away top draft pick after draft pick after draft pick to get help in the near term right now. And in came gap-filling players like offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil in out went the Texans First Round pick in twenty twenty. And their first and second round picks in twenty twenty. One. which all created a different sort of gap to fill because O'Brien not only leaves the Texans. The highest payroll in the NFL at O. and four this season. Next year's first and second rounders who may be the most valuable of their kind in the entire draft. Also. Now belong to the Miami Dolphins. Which means that the future for Houston? Looks Fair in two. So by all means blame Bill O'Brien for all of this blame both of him in fact. But. Don't forget Houston's owner cow McNair. The Guy, who ultimately stepped in to fire him. And the guy who should have separated those powers. To, begin with. I'm Pablo Tori and this has been ESPN daily. I'll talk to you tomorrow.

Texans Fall to 0-4, Astros Open ALDS vs A's, NFL Week 4 Recap, Steve Sparks

"They've got. Omega Bill quarterback. Sean Salisbury. This is the Sean Salisbury show. Madison. Zone touchdown vikings. That's call. We have seen them attack the edges, right? So you saw the eyeballs go to the jet sweep motion in widens that defense just enough to crease it the second career touchdown. Madison. She's the wall here. Could attempts. Handed one. Did he get other down at the assistant right there. That followed a touchdown. Actor review as a run into the ground, the ball hit the ground and move therefore, it's an incomplete pass. I Down Minnesota the five yard line I think we I think we we never quit. But so I think that's really good. Say We got a bunch of great guys. We just gotTA figure out how to win a game. You know we Got Down there, and we weren't able to get it in You know the police just didn't work and You know. So we just have to have to figure out. You know we just got to keep working I mean there's really no way out of it. Other other than that. You have no choice. They're the only choices just keep working in trying to improve and. And? That's what we're all GONNA try to. Do. Well welcome in on a Monday and they're heard the sound that's the King I. Did I heard him yesterday that's the king heard last week. King of moral victory. that. We got a bunch of great guys. So, every team has great guys and we gotta keep working. Yes. But I have no idea how to get better while you got outsmart the other team and actually execute that would help in. It's not just on the coach on the players are defenses absolutely putrid throw open your my mouth, elementary school football period those guys that a and we'll get to Tim J.j and you'll hear the difference between I don't want to. Dog Anybody and you always want to be positive through it. You have to send a message, but I'm watching to hear the difference will play in about ten minutes. Between Bill O'Brien does Shawn Watson and their side and J. Watt. The. Moral Victory Approach and then the realistic approach us guys been the three time defensive player of the year will approach at the way a real pro is supposed to approach it. If you're not pissed by what you see, enter doing on a field as a player on this team then you're in the wrong Buren, the wrong sport may I suggest you take two weeks off and quit and go find something else to do. It's their defense between the Dallas cowboys. And the Houston Texans. Then given up two, hundred, seventy, two points in eight games averaging given five touchdowns a week between the two. and. Then Prescott, playing at a level that. That well is through the talk about here. Sean. Deserves better. Yeah. He May and he does but I can tell you this sodas. Prescott. And I'm not even a cowboy fan either I'm just saying when you guys if I mean the ability to play defense in Texas pro football rivals that only of well, it's disrespectful to Katie and Southlake Carroll high schools. So. Horrible and I don't WanNa hear we've got a bunch of great guys and we hung in there. You're a frigging pro. You get paid what who you're GonNa go through the millions and he makes what five million bucks or something here to hang in there. To. Play hard never give up. What the Hell is this? The same third grade this in third grade Katie. Basketball where everybody looks up and they don't keep score on the scoreboard what to hang in there. We thought. What are you supposed to do? Are we supposed to on? Pat You on the back for be forgetting your ass handed to you early in a game all the to hang in there and do typical Texans. Give you a late touchdown to get back in it and give yourself a chance to win and the ball was dropped unfortunately great effort and great great catch and great balance and great body control. But you've got to carry it through the ground and they didn't and willfully dropped it. It was not a catch unfortunately. So wasn't on the refs that wouldn't have been catching any in any building in in the league. gave a chance and that's Sean does that he'll throw you back into a game and give you a chance to win in the end. He always does these special skill set. He may not be the problem, but he also along with a bunch of guys part of the prog special early and games another three and do you know the colts this year was like the second or third quarter for the first time this season. With three and out, we are four games into the season. That's an average of ten to twelve possessions a game that first time they went through. They went how many what? The last two games you said eight three, ounce, nine, nine, three, yesterday six against the steelers and then two games. And that's there in the same division in case anybody didn't notice. But so no, they're not going to the playoffs just so you understand this. While it's not the best division in football. It is competitive the. Titans are three and the colts are three and one Jacksonville coming back down to Earth they lose the Cincinnati, but I don't WanNa. Hear on. I. Love Upbeat Positive I'm a glass half full guy to. The glasses damn near empty on an own fourteen but you gotta feel like half full. I. I would rather hear him say getting our ass kicked. As. A coaching staff and his players and you are in every way shape or form. Every positions get their ass kicked quarterback Saunas keeping you afloat, but he's not. Listened when it comes to Brady everybody else we talk about every single person in this league. At that position, you gotta make players around you better. And while he's a really good player and he's got a great party, he's still gotta do some extra thanks to make them better especially early. In Games early in Games, they keep coming out three and out they don't start fast. Maybe they were listening last week. When I said, let's change the temple go no huddle. Well, they window huddle name went three and out on a bad throw by Sean. Yet. They never did it. They now to my knowledge, I'm trying to remember they do it again maybe late I'm talking about and then he just went back to doing their. Thank all they looked really good when bill took over the play calls. Yeah it was the same. During another than I'm the one who gave the place Sean through Timmy, he likes to call him timmy. But I just I am absolutely flabbergasted. By that I have to here. Yeah. Now, if you want to say the only way we can do is keep going to work. That's that's true. You keep going and keep grinding at work keep doing your best and you keep giving all you can to get better. That's what you have to. There is absolutely no question you gotTA. Grind. And do your best. But to tell me, we got a bunch of great guys. Guess what bill what you're not doing is going for the Mr Congeniality Award Call Sandra. Bullock. For that. She'll give you that win and then it tells me that we hung in there. What are you supposed to do just squad? I saw Philadelphia Eagles Team on the road yesterday that they're about as bad as there is an elite they won. Yeah they hung in there nope. With actually one. Cincinnati Bengals game they've been hanging in there they won. They won a game yet. So please don't I don't WanNa. Hear all. We should. We give the cowboys credit hanging in there. What a valiant effort you only gave up forty nine to the browns on the at all their Games in Dallas right. Now. I'm sitting here I think it was. So you gave up forty nine part of the two, hundred, seventy, two points. Hundred. Yards on the ground right and yeah, and you give. An Prescott throws for five five and they still can't win and. A give like I said, there's I'm all for glass half full. What else are you going to say but if you tell me your bothered and you're joyful, you're not bothered near full and we just gotTa keep going and we got a bunch of great guys. We got a Yup and one of those guys you didn't think was a great guy. Apparently practice hearts got like eight million catches in Arizona. I'd like to have some you know every now and then maybe don't need grank guys. Maybe you need really good guys didn't know how to win maybe that would help or coach knows how to put him in position to win on a continuous basis. I have. The. Same Old story start slow. Keep it close in the end and don't find a way to finish. Their own for the slice it way you want you're gonNA. Tell me now off the vikings came to town boy look at our rough schedule. They hung in there. They were all in three and they didn't even get to have a full week of practice. So I heard this in. Practice and you got your ass, kick the we. Once again, another running the runner. Dalvin. Cookbook a buck thirty and YEP, and so they it just it's the you can't do it. You just can't. You can't do what you're doing and give yourself a chance to win and are they great guys sure do they WANNA win? Absolutely I'm sure the players are bust their ass all week long and there that's a foregone conclusion I would think for a pro that gets paid that you go to work I've been on teams that have struggled the still going to work in bust. Your ass if you don't those guys just get cut. SMART coaches run guys out that don't want to work hard and smart owners run guys out the don't WanNa make the team better meaning coaching staff and an ancient the head coach we go down the pecking order guys it can be the head coach but I got news for you. There's a whole lot of position coaches that are coaching their guys up properly or the guys are just so bad can't coach one of the two because people are out of position and doing things. So who's responsible suggest the head coach for the position coach around him at eighteen hours a day. It's a whole team that's why there's a team effort. So. There's a lot of people to point fingers at and I'm a glass half full guy the please don't tell me. You have a bunch of great guys after a loss. Great. I'm sure they're great. Good. Great family man that's awesome and you need those kind of guys. But I, also need a guy who during that cut in time finds a way to cover somebody and tackle somebody that would that would help and a coach is not willing to accept it at four and then two tell me to tell us to tell the city. We hung in there. Watts I'm sure they'll get better what bill doesn't have nineteen jobs to worry about this hung in there. What would you expect? Don't you have you seen this movie before bill but what what did you expect? Your team always hangs in there though battle back and give them self a chance to win in the end because you've got a really good player quarterback. Okay You hung in there. Hung into the two zero, one, four, moral victory Monday. Here we go. Just what we need this franchise and this is the first time I have said this needs a partial complete overhaul. This franchise needs eight San Diego Padre? Marlin. About old school go around the League the thing when people have just said Nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. nope. It's time for a cleansing. Time to purge WHO's not willing to stay on the boat and go and those who can't teach it and start from scratch. Bingo. Not The whole team. It's time to make wholesale changes an I don't usually like to say that it's time. Unless you want to keep doing what you're doing in hang in there because we got a bunch of Great Guys Sports Talk Seven Ninety six and MC you're here and we're going to hear the difference between a three time. Defensive Player of the year at a guy who gets it. and well, some don't when it comes to. Hire supposed to approach it and what what losing supposed to do to you. Sports talk seven ninety. I didn't aimed this Sean Salisbury show continues. All. Right. Well, I was always taught that. Yeah. The more you can do when I was always taught that. Why you gotta get over stuff quickly it's okay to at least for twenty four hours. Let it fester toward bothers you for your happy when you win. The always got to have a positive attitude. You gotta be uplifting gotTa have leadership all those things matter. But when you make a lot of money two, I don't WanNa hear after going on for you got a bunch of great guys. Sure you do. I'm sure you do. I'm sure you do. There's no question about it but bill belichick had a bunch of great guys to I'm sure and if they don't perform, they find their way out the door quickly and coaches if you don't mean Steve Wilks or or somebody who didn't perform after one year a Cam. Cameron in Miami the Great Guy. UNDERPERFORM got to go. Bingo Bango Bongo it's time to gut this team. So when you WanNa talk about and great guys is one thing. Awesome. We want we want guys to be law abiding citizens, Bay the rules, and do all that and be great family men and all that and have fun and make and all that. And be great in the community and Charity Wilson want him to win. Because for three hours plus on Sunday I'm not really worried how great a guy there I'm worried about. Can you make a tackle in the open field and not blowing coverage? Can you make throw when necessary and can you actually stop somebody from running to the tune of well? Point given up an average between the cowboys and the Texans thirty four points a game the Texas I think have given up one, hundred, twenty, six points and four games they've they'd been over thirty in terms of s giving up in ever gamble. So their average over thirty the around there. So it's putrid. But I'm listen great guys and we hung in there. Cool. Oh, that's awesome. Seven years of hanging around and have a great guy and there's great. You love your team's effort. They're supposed to do that. It's actually what they get paid to do. I. Don't know of a CEO at some company that struggling right now is just grateful that they're coat at their workers and sales staff at some sales place if you're selling. If you're in sales at target in corporate sales or you got a new product out there were well, I've got great guys and Gals, and I'll tell you what the hang in there but sales are down ninety four percent. And it's been going on year after year made maybe that person needs changed. But I want you to listen to these three comments and tell me. which two of these things are not like the other. and which one actually. Think that dude gets it when it comes to understanding XS and OS. Think we I. Think we we never quit. But So I think that's really good I'd say we got a bunch of great guys. We just gotTA. figure out how to win a game. You know we. Got Down there, and we weren't able to get it The police just didn't work and You know. So we just have to have to figure out you know just gotTa keep working I mean there's really no way out of it other other than that. You have no choice. They're the only choices just keep working and keep trying to improve and. and. That's what we're all going to try to. I take that great guys we hung in there. That's a good thing in the plays just didn't work. Okay. There's bills approach, which is the place he called right and moral victory. Monday next. It is what it is real. Fine I keep pushing forward. You know nest s it but for me personally I'm not GonNa let it take my joy I'm GonNa continue to live life continue to work my ass off to come here every day and play football. So. Yeah I mean that's it is what it is but. Dave, my joy my spirit must mel. my energy they love of the game is still continue to be there so. This house it. Love Him. I I understand this giant come in there with spirit and uplifting guys around you. That's his job is a leader to to even at Owen four come in there and somehow bring the guys along and say we gotta keep doing better and keep working his ass off any will but it is what it is. Isn't good enough. Sorry tire that's up. It's horrible I. Don't need that that he's GonNa have joy and what it is what it is it isn't what it is. It's all four and you're making forty million a year you gotta make guys better. So I know he gets a hall pass because he's a great player and nobody probably gives him more of a hall pass in this town than me. But I also know I'm a truth Serum Guy Too and the truth serum is he needs to play better in certain he'll always play. Great late gotta make certain plays early. So you're not in the position late and it can't just be on everybody else missing a hot read. Another four week comes hold the ball to take a sack of an unblocked player. Okay. There's things that got to get better and guys studied and watch tape know that he's missing a few thanks listen I. Love the fact that he's joyful and does he does he deserve a better playcalling cherry dumps but think about what we always say about Brady or other guys. Hey, guys makes the team. Better. He's gotTA. Elevators players that are quite. Now did did did cooks get a catch yesterday? No three targets zero catches elevate that play. So I love the fact that he's got spirit and joy in his life that he's going to be happy as he should I'm all for that I love that he's going to come into the building with energy I do but I cannot stand the answer of. Is. What it is. No it's not as what it is when you're forty million dollars quarterback, it's unacceptable and you can't accept matter of fact I would've loved EMC GONNA play my ass off. I'M GONNA keep prepared I'm gonNA keep having joy but I can tell you this. What it is is what it's going to be guys are going to pick this damn thing up around here that's what I expect from. A forty, million dollars a year quarterback. So he is not above criticism. That's that comet half of it was good. The other half sucked period now here now here is a guy who's been in the legal while and understands that he got a ring. He's in the Malone Barkley, Stockton all that group of Guys Philip Rivers. Now you listen to this comment, you tell me which guy suffers moreover a damn loss. I mean, this is terrible brutal. It's I mean it's. Depressing. Sucks sucks. Any other way to put it? like I said I don't know any other way than to work harder I know that working less is not the answer. So. I'm going to work even hard. There you go. He said in essence to Sean said about coming in working your ass off absolutely great answer part of it by Sean Bill even said we gotta keep working of course it's captain obvious but is true and then everything else he's depressed it sucks I don't know what else to do but work. I. Know Working less heart isn't going to help. That's a guy that that. That's a guy who gets it. Who Cares about losing I'm not saying to Shawn doesn't Shaun's got winning DNA in college and winning DNA here but not enough winning get you super yet. The coach has won games they've won division titles, but just listened to the three answers once completely brutal and Bill O'Brien excuse making moral victory Monday hogwash be if I could on unload. But I can't it's. It's it's absurd. You ask your players and you're telling me we got a bunch of great guys. But by took great yet I'm sure they are. A bunch of great dudes for three hours on Sunday you know what? I'd actually want what don't be great. Once as a dude, just go out, knock the hell out of somebody tackle somebody I want to say, I, want him to say we've got great tacklers and great executor's Oh. By the way we have great guys off the field too great guys. Great guys eight winning squad. Is a speech by the president and also, and also you know what else we also have. We hung in there. What cool what? We Hung Listen Maggie style points in the voting listen if the astros hang in there but lose three games to two would be great. Yeah. They hung in there. At the rock they hung in there, they got to the playoffs. It's not acceptable and it's not acceptable coming out of the mouth the head coach great coaches don't talk like that. The best in the world, don't talk like that. Popovich Not Bella check your your positive. But in a process, you're sending a message. We ate standard for this because all of our asses are on the line dudes. I get fired coaches get fired. See how that goes one coach gets fired meaning the head coach everybody else's going with him I assure you and a bunch of players out the door to. Moral Victory Monday sucks when it comes to the NFL players and it should. To Sean Part, you work your ass off I love that he's joyful, but it is what it is. Isn't a good enough answer I'm sorry he needs to suffer some to. Not Talking about there should be a little suffering inside we suck. I gotta get back into work and I gotTa make the guys around me. Feel like I I love his joy. And I love his performance it's still not good enough to win their own four. Mahomes was good enough to win. Lamar was good enough to win Ben was good after winning cousins was good enough to win. He's got play better. He just does but listen I. I. I stand up and tell you I do probably I'm an apologist for Sean too often but I think he's a special player and I do I would it comes to him I'm like. He'll normally make that play and I think he special and he's the only I keep to not only guy but offensively, if he does if he doesn't play halfway decent this team's not. There three touchdown loss every week. Yeah. So that's how good he is but. You still have to send the message the he's also got to play, but I just can't stand the answer now. I can't even I want to see more urgency. Urgency and I, want him pissed wanting to say you know what? I'm not? FM. Taken this anymore. And the rest of this team will go, I'm going to grab you long and we're going and then there's JJ. Watt. Who? Unequivocally. Had I guarantee trouble sleeping last night. Woke up miserable EPIs- this morning. Realize this is an acceptable and he didn't have any joy last night when he went to bed. Or Waking up just tell you the joy is I woke up healthy. He woke up and got in the gym this. He's pissed as a mother watching Abe I'm just telling you. That's the difference and unfortunately I have a hunch that much of the team feels the same way that bill and dishonor answer, and then the way Jj answering and that's unacceptable and that's why their own for and that's why this city unless you got this town, I mean the. The franchise meaning this guy's got to go change and I don't usually subscribe to that I've seen, enough. Changes have to be made or this franchise will will flounder and mediocrity for a long time and it starts with the owner. If you don't have the balls to step up and do it then hire somebody or step aside I. Do sell the team so I just i. let me tell you what I don't know many coaches that are owned for this year with the expectations they have and the payroll they have that they're owners allow them to stroll in the building today and feel like we got a bunch of great guys. Yeah. Great Guy. Your ass right to the bus stop sports talk seven Ninety Sean Salisbury Shell will steak or steak what have we got the Big One. Big One next. Got The big one next. Yeah. It is a big one and something else. That's big is getting the new balanced greater Houston uptown of the woodland's the two locations to get into the world of comfort and confidence to feel that you know what the fit specials will give you which I do when I have those new balance shoes on my feet every. Single Day when I'm doing my workouts, I have him on my feet again today actually wore them yesterday to after the Texans game ended said I gotta get out of here. We wouldn't walk the dogs and just totally forgot about it for a little bit and head those new balance shoes on my feet again and I got him at the two area locations uptown and the woodland's. Go see the fit specialist to take completely different world. You're going to say, why did I buy the shoes off the shelf like I used to? It makes a massive difference up in the woodland's again, the two locations for new balanced greater Houston. More. Sean. Sounds Very Gedeon Strap Ian and right in. Question just one question. One question. This is the big one. Being question of the day on the Sean Salisbury show. It's pretty simple first of all the phone number seven, three, two, one, two, five, seven, ninety, one, empty, the bucket. On empty the bucket. Monday, on the Texans. Who deserves more? Now I want you to put your the overall I'm not. I'm talking about right now for four games. and. Remember there's a lot of coaches and a lot of players involved. How do we say this? WHO DESERVES MORE BLAME? Who should shoulder more of the blame fly Texans Oh and four start coaches or players? And say coach. Click. staffed. Right. Because guess what the last time bill coached the tight ends I don't remember maybe he was in college or High School coaching there maybe even did it in New England I, don't know when he was the coordinator he ate high tight end coach he ain't the defensive tackle coach. He's not the the linebacker outside linebacker inside linebacker coach. He's not the secondary coach he ain't the offensive line coach receiver coach. He Ain't the quarterback coach although I think he wants to be all of them. So who's to shoulder more blame for this Oh enforce start the coaching staff. Including your head coach. Or the players. I'm anxious to see if anybody just cuts the players one hundred percent slack here and says, all coaches only you can't do. If they do shame on you. That means you don't understand football. I've I I, put it to the coach more than anything just because I've watched after being preached to that they needed to get faster team more dynamic play calling was going to open everything up they were gonna be more dynamic as an offense, and there is no sign of even attempting to be there. Let me tell you what is dynamic is a glass of hot water. Warm. Water. Take. Drink sits there and the forgot you put it didn't put it in the sink right and it's sitting there and then you wake up the next morning. That's how dynamic. It's Lucas. or it's just like the temperature right or it's as dynamic as a as a carbonated drink that's been open for six weeks. That's how dynamic this team is. The dynamic anywhere as a as a carbonated drink you left open in your frigerator. Forgot it was in the back of the refrigerator for a week and a half and it comes out. So flat that's it. The this is the that's the explanation or should I say the if you say look a non carbonation or flat in the dictionary, it'll be the Texas picture next to a soda that's been open up for three weeks in your refrigerator. Came out flat today what a shock. Win having you come out flat. Against Jacksonville great who we count on that one next week way to go kick their ass they're good. And I. Listened I got an even in skins invested in the Texans because I grew up. Raider Fan Right. I don't give a fuzzy rats after they listen for sitting here talking about effort I care about kicking but I care about an I care about it because I'm in this town I care about the fans that I care about guys like Jj Watt and these guys who are working their butt off but the question is are they It's one thing to practice harder not Jayjay. It's one thing to practice harder. It's another thing to practice smarter. How smart are they practicing? Do they not put themselves in situations that do this? Are they chokers under pressure is just great practice field all American team. We gotta start asking these questions because well. The way you practice is the way you play. That's one and that's on coaches accepting it. And then if you're just a guy that's not a Gamer I got out. If you're a guy took the know how to pull through four quarters I gotta get you out some of us mere average players elite couldn't do it. I got cussed out plenty for it. Maybe, there's a bunch of those guys on this team, but to come out every single week three and out three now three now three now three now three and out three and it's embarrassing. And all you gotTa do a taped a run against them. Listen Harry. Hatchet ass and Joe six pack in the Backfield they're gaining one hundred yards rushing I just want you to understand this gave up one hundred, thirty yards of a hundred and thirty yard rusher. In Dalvin. Cook. Yesterday had two touchdowns. COULDA had a third but Alexander Madison took that third touchdown. And then you gave up two hundred receivers feeling caught a touchdown and then Jefferson just. You never threw the ball towards them don't even good like the Vikings even good yesterday other than getting yards like they wanted you to be in that game, they should have been up twenty one nothing in the first quarter and they weren't that will you couldn't take advantage of anything that was outside of you. One of the worst defenses in the NFL. deshaun Watson in the first half goes six of fifteen for seventy nine yards. So, I mean, again, you don't play four quarters you come up short with a you know an overturned touchdown at the end. But. If you come out and actually show some urgency. But again, for the fourth straight time your scheduled plays or you know your scripted plays quote unquote. Come out and go three and out, and it wasn't even close and again you start the game run up the middle. Chris Myers I mean, how many times? Yesterday, it'd be like and another run because all I do. David Johnson says great back. He's averaging. In credit to him yesterday at least it was better than last week. But is that much of a credit health three point nine yards per carry. Cool. You traded a second round pick for Brandin cooks. Through four games, he has ten catches. For one hundred. And let me get this right one, hundred, thirty, eight yards no touchdowns. That's what you gave up a second round pick for and tried to replace De'andre Hopkins with it's an embarrassing joke. Okay. It's an embarrassment the Big One I. Wish it was there but I want to give that cop out to anybody. It is really fifty fifty I. think the players have sucked. The defensive line is sucked. The offensive line is sucked even though I thought they played better but I mean again, you're playing the vikings front whereas nobody outside of Enoch Way and for some reason, they line them up over tunsil every time you know what? I think about this team and I think they all suck yeah. Well, yeah, IT'S A. I'm not saying we can do better but I don't get paid to be pro anymore. My job to do this show and I'm better this show than they are at their job right now and so are you guys hundred percent so so that because you know what? I don't come into work saying it is what it is. Okay. Now it isn't what it isn't k. and my guy, and thank you for the Nice Compliment Moselle be but I actually in. Saying this I think the Shawn Watson Way too casual at times and I think that permeates the team in the post game comments listen. This is the hardest probably ever be under Shawn. Watson in his life and why because I expect him to elevate his team next and we look at the stats and say if you're going to tell me that Shawn Watson deserves better. Every. Single Week deck and then rip back Prescott, every single week that guy plays out of his mind. And people are crushing him. What because he doesn't elevate the team make them better. To Shawn Watson is one of the five best players at the position is league. That's how I feel about it. And we'll continue to feel about it. But in order for me to for him to rise up to the next level, you gotta go all Russ Wilson Aaron. Rodgers on you've got will them to win a time? You don't you do. That's the responsibility you take forty million. chargers kicking your ass Kansas City. And a matter you blinked and guess what happened. Patrick Mahomes took care of it to Sean is listen. We're we're fortunate. I. Feel Bad for Sean because now he stuck here is if the franchise continues to do this not because not good guys not good city I? Feel bad because if this continues he's going to flounder he's going to be Philip rivers. Without a super bowl. If it continues part of it'll be on him just like it was on rivers and part of it will be on the the other players in a lot of it'll be on coaching staff and the ownership for not having the balls to make a decision but I can tell you this and as a glass half full of guided would crawl ten miles over broken glass to coach and or have Shawn Watson on a team was on or to be a teammate of his. But I can't take. It is what it is. I just can't. It hit. No, that's not it. You can't have it is what it is for a for a undrafted free agent trying to make a team that just hangs on but those guys don't go by what it is what it is. Those guys they think. that their life's fighting for it because this is it for them. I gotTA. Have this team seems way too casual coming out they actually stroll out of the locker room to open a game like their the former director of the reigning super, Bowl champions and four zero like the chiefs like do the ravens like right now though the seahawks like, Tom Brady who really the truth matters who the hell do you think you are your own fourteen, thousand, nine, hundred what the Philadelphia Eagles are better than you right now. There for the Philadelphia Eagles are better right now than Watergate game they suck. You know who you are. You're the jets and the giants right now. That that's who you are. we're not that your own the jets and the giants, and until you proved to me, you can be Jacksonville you've jets and the giants. How's that stand for you and quite frankly in the ownership you are the jets and the giants. It's exactly who you are. We. Could point are looking the jets and the giants. Yeah. Okay but guess what they got a bunch of great guys bill and you know what else they do. You know what else they do they hang in there. They hang in there. But it's a great guy to hang in there. Welcome to it ownership the jets and the giants both have won both hang in there. Both got great guys. It is what it is. Sports Talk Seven, ninety maybe you need an ice cold beer to cool off today and you should do that with an ice cold Crawford Bach from car back because Astros baseball they do play today LDS game one mccullers on the mound going gets Bassett it's going to be a good day in Houston sports and the only way to celebrate it is with an ice cold Crawford Bach from Car Bach Ruin Chris Gordian, I bring it the Crawford box cast twice a week sports seventy DOT COM that is Thanks car-bomb bringing that Crawford Bach be out there at the beer garden is open and they're going to be having watch parties for every single game because if you missed the scheduling in terms of the Times of the Games, they're all during the day we'll be out there for the game this week for the pre-game show Gordian I will so get your butt out to the beer garden four some delicious beer some great astros baseball. Thanks to car-bomb brewing that ice cold Crawford Buchan as always drink responsibly. Back to Sean Salisbury. We do have astros and we are going to talk about this matchup. Lance. mccullers has gone game one. We're GONNA find out how you feel about that. postseason experience. Matt Nasty Curve Ball which gives you the opportunity of things do or don't for him to be relief for its reliever at some other point Greg go until game three that basically in essentially. One and done for him in this series more than likely. In game three. So we'll discuss and William. Chamberlain. You you hit make a good point. When will we get the excuse of its twenty twenty from the blank show on curvy let me take them. I, don't want to I I honestly could give a rat's ass about the twenty twenty. You're taking the field I don't want to hear about. Well, we're concerned about Kobe if that excuse ever comes out, then we're like, no, I got a problem. Yeah. If that's the case and don't show up in opt out. Some of you need to opt out. Some of you in the building, you I feel the bottom need to opt out go home. And gather yourself and say and ask yourself this important to me. Is are more things important in life yeah. But that's your job and when you're on it for three hours areas nothing more important nothing. To Jj, Watt, there's nothing more important for those three hours. And everybody needs to take notice because the way you're supposed to care when you get beat. If you want somebody to feel sorry for which he doesn't. He doesn't want you to feel sorry for him is look at that guy who's been grinding back I mean he could just as soon walk away tomorrow and he's in the hall of fame with the first ballot. He could walk away tomorrow and is in the hall of fame I about but he's sick. He hit his one more time. We'll take the calls here. He here's here's how you're supposed to care after football game not that we have great guides and not that we really gave effort and man we didn't give up shut up. Here's how you're supposed to care. I mean, this is terrible brutal it's. Depressing pressing images in sucks sucks. I don't know any other way to put it. But like I said, I don't know any other way than to work harder line all the working less is not the answer. So. I'm going to work even harder. If, everybody on the team felt that everybody needs Jj Watt on their team, not just the talent that the approach everybody on the team felt that way. They would not be open for. The coach feels that way clearly but we got great guys and you know we we hung in there. That's a good thing. Of course it is, and it is what it is. Sorry. It ain't what it ain't what it is what it is. Alright Joanne Four. And? There should be guillotine in the building and not a literal guillotine. That's what you say a guillotine of a football guillotine meaning meaning. There's as John Tierney thank God rest his soul, our defensive line coach one of the best. Coach and defensive ends and pass rushers used to tell a guy on the practice field and you may not like to hear it. But Oh, well, it's called football. We don't play touch football in the NFL. When a guy would screw up in the game and keep screwing up on the practice field he'd say. The bus leaves at three and you'll be on it. If, you don't pick it up. And if you don't pick it up at my position, I'll be on with you being a coach. That bus ain't only reserved that train station Doug leave just with players at least with coaches to Ron. How're you doing? Going doing. Great I get my ass kicked yesterday. So how you doing? With. I need to quit crying. CLA. Halo. I have a pamphlet how great quote quit crying quick crying all when. Are you GONNA Apologize Forum. No you know I'm not. I've been telling you about O'Brien I in cry cars Ryan Listen. This is my team I. Listen I care about the fans the city and I want them to win.

I don't cry over spilt milk, but I know how to work I don't cry over a team losing I don't like sports that much I. Now listen I nobody's bitch I promise you that. You sound like you're my bitch on my show. Michael Connell you you're a OH. Thank you, Ron. Hey, you know what you go to hell well that. Ron Does sound is very nice. It's crime. Do me a favor. Go make me a sale to get off my air. Tell me Okay Jason What's going on. Hey how you doing this morning? Apollo. Follow that call. It's easy. You actually have a brain. Okay. There you go to welcome in you're above six. So go ahead what's happening? I. I mean huge John Watson thing I'm not GonNa lie lived in Louisiana, most of my life. So I'm the Saints Fan. So I'm happy about yesterday Bill O'Brien is sorry coach only certain manages way out of a paper bag but honestly my wife's a huge actress fan. So she's looking forward to that I'm actually more excited and I and I miss you on A. twitter I'm actually more excited. The braves are coming to town because I've been brave San since nineteen, ninety one and I, don't want to get your thoughts on I. Want I want you to tell me how far you think they'll go because if this is a year, this is a year for us. Thank you very much. I appreciate that I don't know how you guys feel I think they're a very talented team. And if this is a year to do it, it's not a bad time. They'll get to come here to San Diego. Right scientists into you to Houston and play. I liked the team. That's that's the only thing Jason is that while I like them and they're talented I don't know if they're ready for that show just yet. But. We'll see and I understand good for your wife as an Astros Fan that they've got a legitimate chance. But I would probably say the Astros chance against the as is a lot bigger right now than anybody against the dodgers nationally but. The Atlanta braves are a very talented young team, and sometimes you don't know what you don't know, but teams are going to have to play really really good anybody including your braves to get through the dodgers. If the dodgers don't win this year, I don't know what the hell to do if you're a dodger fan. Talk about talk about major disappointment heavy favourite but it's a towns dad. Thank you both agree there's some towns on that baseball team man, some young skilled players that are aggressive of should be fun to watch. Thanks for the call. Jason, let's quickly who's up next let's get to Chris before break and we'll get to all you guys Manning Sam Ray the whole group. I'm going to get to everybody's call I'm doing good. Chris. How're you doing brother? Normally have to fight but these dodger fans of a national show. The, overnight Ben Maller I'm always fighting with them man because I love these teams always rooted for these teams to Texas ever since they've been here the mediocrity is just too much now is just to the point where the those they got in in Don ever in our jeet heating got rid of all the time like he's gone and now the team looks like you don't even know what the team is. I mean in fact that you know the Sean. Has. A boat anchor hanging on a main bill O'Brien, and it's no no urgency was down by I think what would it like ten or so or eight, and it was no urge to see. It was like ten minutes left regained like come on man let's go. Let's go. Okay it was nonchalant attitude. I can't deal with my wife is a huge checks and She says she wanted to cry. I'm like. Would you WANNA cry. Because he's destroyed the team. Bill Brown has literally destroyed the Texan Cal McNair sitting in a fetal position with stomach mouth. There you go. Thanks Chris Fellas we'll get to you SAM man he don't go anywhere. We're GONNA take a quick break, but I can tell you this and he's Caller, just said, he doesn't know who the Texans are. Oh I do I know exactly who they are. They're an underachieving non four quarter plan flat out of the Locker Room. underachieving coaching staff right now and a coach who's made some decisions has too much power auto sands that right now should probably be an assistant coach. That's the facts and I've defended Bill Brian to my wit's end. There's only one reason they come out flat every week it's because they're not prepared period. Period. Three three three and out the colts won three and out. Four Games in one big difference sports talk seven ninety we'll get to some astros talk. That's a good thing. They're in the playoffs I imagine there's a bunch of great guys and they're just not out there. To. Hang in there. It is what it is. Right. Sports Talk Seven, ninety minutes. T clinic.

As approach, nece listen I take and five players in the league over Sean Well Top ten let's put out players in the league. And but I'll take JJ's approach to the game every single you're supposed to feel crappy after you lose. Time and time and time again. If it doesn't matter then win and won't matter either. Just doesn't Cam Front run on me when you get your ass kicked you either sit in the corner or you have mic on rocky cut you any go out and finish. Get to Sam. Sam Welcome in how you doing. tell you what I'm not doing well. Tell you what Bill von Mortgage, the future of this team, and we will have a team until he's gone. And not just take power with them. He's got to be gone. He's lost his team. You'd never going to get it back I. Don't I, don't argue with that at all Sami, ask you real quick question. Do you put any any accountability on the players? Know Nah I think he's lost them and they don't care about it. Okay. So We want to do it that way to have some accountability. But they don't have a coke respect. I don't disagree with that but I also know that I gotta give accountability to both man. Sam thanks. Is that you judge Sam. Yeah, Oh my goodness we hadn't heard from you and forever it's good to hear from on. Sam Hope you're healthy and you're one hundred percent correct debts. I can't argue one bit that the teams that that that the team did coaches lost the team I, agree with that I'm. Yep. Our own doesn't have. Encouraged to come and talk to us. You never hear from me being finding that rose country club every day. He does a good job there. At the Bar Yeah He. our own their idea. Okay. That's your clock. To go play around with talk some sense into. Santa's wrong I'd been there before and he was in the SAM. Thank you for your brother we. Thank you good to hear from. You skipped a manny manny. What's up man how you doing? Hello Amanda you're on how you doing. I'm doing great man I'll be doing well, yourself. I'm doing. Awesome. I well, you know there's so many things to talk about when it comes to tech. Let's just let's talk about the running back situation. The compared are running backs tuition to Minnesota's. You can tell the explosiveness they're running back and ours I don't saying our Guy Johnson trying not very hard but. I don't think he's just I don't think he has explosives. That's I mean that's one of the reason Arizona gave it to us and I would definitely take over the receiver a corpse that we got right now it's not working out. No doubt. Twenty two cents about the ready back situation listen. Thank. You many appreciated less an. Duke Johnson at times as underutilized David Johnson's a good player solid player. They average you know I mean do cadidate a little bit more yesterday David averages what three, three, hundred, four yards a carry. He did not that listen and I don't think anybody should have thought different least on this show us three preached it. If you thought you were getting humanity but anybody thought they were getting David Johnson from two thousand, sixteen seventeen wasn't happening. That position, the Frank Gorgeous don't exist very often at that position. They just don't seem so nature Johnson's a solid player. The truth is David. Johnson's a SPA David Johnson's a change that you could use him if David Johnson was in Minnesota David Johnson would get twelve steps. Fifteen snaps a game I didn't say touches. I said snaps. There's a reason why wasn't playing right? You've got beat up by Kenyan drake now he doesn't fit their system as well. So. If you're not gonNA use him and you told me on bill told us he's working hard. He's hungry and I listen I like David John David Johnston nothing wrong for me. He was a hell of a worker went through a tough injury and never quite been the same but we see that happened with a lot of people the problem is that some people thought we were getting. The we're getting David Johnson MVP caliber David Johnson because you will try to tell us that. Wasn't gonNA happen guys in an ain't gonNA happen. He'll have a game where he rushed for hundred yards. I'm sure some point but over the consistency and the long haul of the year now it's not happening. So I, what I expected from David Johnson Manny is exactly what I'm getting. Some good. Some. Okay. Some non existent. In the play calling I expected it and the results. Listen no disrespect David Johnson because he's a hardworking solid player and apparently a really great guy and you know what Greg doesn't give up according to build according the whole team could practice I can tell you this. I know I know Carlos side did the production was better last year? Over the course of the season Oh he it was right so. I. Guess what you go into to. A the panic mode. And, now you just did, what are you GonNa do you put the ball enforce hands and hope that he can pull miracles out weekend and week out? So I don't know how much more production David Johnson, or because you're great guys in it is what it is that David Johnson gets more production David Johnson's solid back. That's not going to anybody's pro bowl and wasn't wasn't GonNa be a star and had to do with amber just has everything to do with the fact that that's just the way it was at this stage of his career. I other than Bill I'm not sure anybody expected any different than a good guy who works hard that gives you some production. But isn't going to take over a game like you've seen other for running backs. Do Think about this David. Johnson, through four games has fifty one carries one hundred and ninety seven yards two. Three point, nine yards per carry but that's propped up by the seven yards per carry gun week one right since then it's been putrid Carlos Hyde last year in his first four games fifty to carry. So one more Kerry two hundred and fifty yards four point eight, one yards yard more. A different team in the office of lines have been a major. Greg Johnson. Three in the last three games three yards per carry Greg Jennings during the game yesterday you watch them go around the corner. Here's no. We can't you can't. You don't have to worry too much about the edge because he just. Get there. Now you don't set the edge like they didn't yesterday on defense guests at Donald Trump does his ass is to the Let's get to mark mark. What's on your mind man? I'm mad as hell night taking it anymore David Johnson a ham sandwich compared to new cups and we need to start calling the shots because, hey, time after time after time a guy runs a five out and he'd been doing it added feet I'm sick of it. To. Thank you brothers in. To Rob. Rob Let's get his rob on their Robert. We'll welcome in brother. How're you doing? I'm I'm doing great. How are you doing? It's been a long time. The had been a long along I. Listen My man if I was any better I'd be illegal life's good healthy plodding along and I'm not going four but but that's okay. Really glad to hear this John I'm going to go on a quick little rant. Then I'm GonNa get off as always do I've kept quiet around this entire thing dating back to back to the deandra straight haven't said anything I'm going to sit back and say you know what these guys know more than I. Do so I'm going to watch it happen I'M GONNA heal. Fast forward and four. He does the Tunsil Trade I. Go you know what we need to protect quarterback we've got a franchise quarterback the offensive line is horrid. The Andre Hopkins Davis Looking I, get the you know he wants an extension I get all of this all this other money coming from he goes in overpays for cop nine million I'm seeing all this money go out hustle deal everything else I'm going and you couldn't hang onto the Andrei Hopkins I'm not quite understanding what is keeping this man employ I get a quota. Every year if I don't hit my quota, he's around fire or I get a stern talking to him on a probation. What is this Guy Doing? There's no creativity to the offense. I watch other NFL gangs because well, let's be honest you can only watch so much of the taxes and I see the off in it so creative and I'm not talking about Casey guys. I'm talking about teams. SEATTLE. Jacksonville. For Christ's sake. Tennessee. Titans. I, see the creativity but then I looked at the Texans and I'm going this is just a regular. Oh hamburger it's not a McDonald's this is just a regular old hamburger but this guy still has a job what is going on? When did they fire him in my question to you sean it is it. Because nobody else wants this job because he's mortgage the Texans future for the next three years I listen back rob great stuff what I'm GonNa do because that's going to before we get to our south stakeout at we take quick break I'm going to answer that win and all three of us to that number one. Here's what it is. They got the payroll of dynasty. With the production of a team that picks the top three every year. That's how that that this team about this year, the payroll of a dynasty franchise and the production and the urgency of team that can't wait to pick in the top three picks yet. Even. If they have the top three pick guess what they don't get. The top three pick deco somewhere else. Get my point talk about an underachieving. The sense of urgency is like molasses. January. Look that up and tell me what that does sportstalk seven ninety. Buckle up. The. Sean Salisbury show continues his. Sean. There's now the Salisbury steak out. On the Sean Salisbury show. To answer the question about our guy and you guys can both chime in I listen. I don't but the best way I can put this in. You loved you ramp my man, those rob bright sex. Yeah Rob I. Loved it. Is I. I'm all for paying guys. But I gotta get production and what I saw like I said just the little thing like against Pittsburgh where you had to slide the line to help Tunsil I don't get it whether somebody making the decision four that's your ties paid tax slide the line to help him you don't. If you do then you're coaching staff sucks or you overpaid him one of the two that's the only way you can. Look at it right. He should never need help Gary Zimmerman never needed help and he was never our highest paid player and he's in the hall of fame. So stop it. Okay. So that goes with scheme and the of it and trust and all that you're going to keep playing. You're right. They've got it the team and and we're not getting the same production and the problem is, is it the owner? Is Not the owner. Does that make sense? Yeah. He's not owner is afraid to be the owner. He's a buddy now you think about this. If you put him on watch meaning the staff saying if things don't get better, we're GONNA have a long conversation and if they don't get better quickly with all the money I'm paying out and you put them on notice and if they don't just like you said, if you don't meet your quota and you'll four years in a row by falling short, you have the job you'll be working for a different sales company. It's just the way it works and I don't like to see people get fired but I got news for that's the world we live in in the business we live in. Now if you're in the if you're in the field good business in the business of Hall Pass Business, and if you're in the business of everybody gets a trophy business and if you're in the FI, the business of no accountability business, well, then you just keep doing what you're doing, just keep doing it. See if you're not afraid to make a mistake and you grow a set and you're the owner. You put them on call, not just the coaches, the players. Because you know what? Now sacred cows are created a salary and there's a few guys that have now you got him and a couple of you want you want tonsil and you want Watson again it. But. The accountability got to be there and if the owner has no accountability and is afraid to make a decision why the hell would anybody expect the rest of the franchise to do it So, if I was the owner, this would have happened a long time ago. Bill doesn't run the show. I do. You work for me. General. Manager, Head coaching thing is you better quit worrying about the general manager DOPP Today on Sundays at three o'clock at noon at start, worrying about head coaching job because I will run your ass out. I understand listen I, think we fire coaches too soon most of the time in sports I do this franchise holds onto them too long. Yeah. There's a difference between firing him too soon and being an just knee jerk, and then there's a difference between I. don't even know if you call it loyalty ignorance hanging onto long don't WanNa make a decision. Do. You realize right now if you put put them on call. And there was a hot seat here. Do you realize that McNair? Would actually finally have somebody say he's doing the right thing by. And ailing what the hotseat they want to be. So sizzling that you know the objection seat. Yeah. Outta town. Now I don't know if that's GonNa do any good this year, but this can't continue to happen because if there's two things if the coach can elevate the player, his coaching staff to get his players to play better. They here's what you gotTA. Do you gotta place to coach you got to replace the players and the quarterbacks got to get people to play better to is good as he as he's got the next stage of great quarterback is to get them to play better as well and if none of that's happened, you're going to keep the quarterback. Others have to go. That's just the way it works to say it. It's the facts analysts. You WanNa be the Cincinnati bengals. What's the difference? Well, WE WANNA vision. Well, you both went to the playoffs and got eliminated. The difference on the Bengals are better new this year by the way, they got a better record. While they employ and. The execution of this is humiliating. Jj Watt you did it right brother you said it right. Depressing sucks hurts don't know what else to do because that's a pro's pro who gets it. Who understands the sense of urgency? On a franchise and this franchise has zero. This team honestly could be down three touchdowns or down a touchdown with forty eight seconds to go and it's as if it's a marathon, not a sprint to the line of Scrimmage I. It's I. Don't know what and they come. OUTTA. The locker room they stroll out of the locker room elected the twenty-seven. Yankees. It wasn't twenty, seven, twenty seven years is if you just, you can just put your clear out there listen you're not good enough to play with fifteen men on the field right now. Let alone come strolling of the locker mccaw. It's the vikings they're all in three. Yeah. How's that one taste? Three team didn't get a full week of practice came in here and a hammered, your your former head coach and ways, and they your current head coach and play collar like well kindergarten. Had you a scolded dog in the first half of the game? and. That was the difference. And you couldn't stop anybody. Could you right now big twelve team score on them? I'm telling you Right Now oh God twelve team scoring on scorn on this defense. And I am not just blaming it on the defense because I'll tell you what offense you gotta play better early. three trips to the red zone how he points they get. Field goals. Yeah. Hey. Look man they're just trying to make sure that they look good for overpaying. Fair. But I do know this. There by great bunch of guys. To is they they they hate hung in there they kept fighting and three is it is what it is. That's what I do know that's what I was told at least the thing about this. Now, your what we thought was going to be a good second round pick and Mac sharpen did not play Talamante has taken that job from him. the wide receiver core which you're paying. Almost, the most lauded to look and see exactly where it ranks but they're paying their offense of side of the football more than any of the more than anybody. Yeah. And you're wide receivers close to think about this per game your top four receivers average twelve catches for one hundred and seventy eight yards and one touchdown. That's all four. That's four combined. So they're averaging three catches each day average. Go back to that. Max. Scharping. Round was he picked in second that's what I thought and drafted him. It'd be bill and where's he planned The bench. Yeah. This is a rookie rookie season. Though, right you do I need to go across court veteran season I mean. Veteran yeah he's he's a veteran but also. Can I go across the League and like Ken Law in San Francisco? I'm GONNA go across the League on on the other side of the ball across the League about rookies. Impact and teams yeah. Just looked at the number of snaps for the rookies. John Reid had twelve, Ross blacklock had nine Jonathan Bernard had five and how many stamps had Scharping your second round second year offensive. Lineman it was going to help. So this up every step seagate yesterday though it would be zero. Okay let's get to the before. My head explodes. Before my head explodes you can I one more at real fast please do just because you want my head? Yes. Twenty points per game right through first four weeks. That's the highest scoring first four games in the history of the League do you know that? There's going into yesterday so I'm assuming after I watched the browns hang forty nine, right? Yeah. Teams are scoring more than ever going into today's game in the first three weeks of the season. It was the highest scoring three weeks in the history of the game and they're averaging twenty points game and that is twenty ninth in the League. They're giving up thirty one and a half that is twenty-seventh in the league. But last year two, thousand, nineteen. First four games they went to two. Points per game. One, thousand nine and a half. So. You're telling me. It's Groundhog Day Yep just just losing the game. Yeah. Just like we talk about every single week with this team, it's groundhog day. It's the same thing over and over, and now you got beat by a crappy team somebody on twitter made a great point. Said you guys could actually take your first hour from the first game and. Just in the first hour and just like do the open like just to introduce it and the first hour we could be in water burger and thank you to mercy for bringing in. Water Burger for bringing in sanches. Missy always, she always gets the sponsors there is you have. You do that. Okay. So we can just run that. We'll just eat the water burger and kick back for the first hour because it would be groundhog 'cause. It's the same thing over no urgency no defense no production by the big dogs draft picks not playing and the game plan is about as like I said it's as innovative as a luke warm glass of water the left in the sink overnight. This is how you get a dejected fan base imagine being the owner of this football time knowing knows I know. But but like if you turn on the radio in listening to people that call our wherever talked people on your city and you realize that there is a large majority of your fan base that wants you to fricken. Lose every weekend because they want you to make a change they want it to be that bad. That should tell you all. You need to know about how you're running your franchise right there. It's so frustrating to me because the fans I know they deserve better and I know there's great guys on the team but I don't care about that. I care about that I on the maybe we need a bunch butt heads on the field at times just two and maybe a guy like earl, Thomas you don't like it. He knows that I read over the weekend is supposedly clock. Yeah that said that team players didn't want him in the locker room because he just didn't fit in fourteen. Yeah. and. Maybe that maybe a clean up your is exactly what you need. Now, trust me even he can't fix their lack urgency. Let's also remember they lost to a Vikings team only put up twenty three points six of fifteen in the first half to sean dead didn't run the ball. To Vikings team that didn't have Harrison Smith most of the game because of a ridiculous objection and Daniel Hunter who did not play Oh and by the way to best defensive players dating get a full week practice. Yeah. So just I, just WANNA throw that in. So if he doesn't understand the sense of urgency, then guess what shame on him shame on him and. You GotTa, you gotta call him to the carpet I. What we'll do is we'll we'll stick it out at forty five. Forty two. Steve Sparks going to join US next we'll get our. Astros talk. Throughout the show as well.

Sean Salisbury show put our smart ass on your smart speaker. Google play Sean Salisbury on iheartradio. sportstalk doc seven, hundred. After everybody takes deep breath and put your head back on from it exploding over the Texans performance yesterday and the day before in the week before and the week before Groundhog Day with Bill Murray we actually get to something a little bit more upbeat and exciting Steve Sparks Astros broadcast a joint. She'll be calling the game obviously right here on sports talk, seven ninety Steve Welcome in are. Going to be, are you going to be a minute maid park while the braves and Marlins are playing? What you say my my head exploded say yes. Of course did put it back on. Go we'll get into its looney tunes. Ten Hour. Where are you guys doing the game from Steve? From the at studio tonight the net to let us go over there. Yeah we can't go. We can't be at the stadium during this round of the playoffs. There you go. All right. So you'll call the game from the the AT and T. studios locally here. So let me ask you Steve. Banter about who should pitch game one. So sell us on why mccullers is a good start in game one. Well I would. I would have pissed vowed as agreed but lance mccullers. in my thing, it can be anybody at any time I. I'm just talking about the most reliable pitcher you have this year was Valdez and if it goes to game to game five. Then Then, it makes sense here. Here's one thing. If it goes to game five Valdez come come back on short days rest easier. So he can come and piggyback mccullers in that day because I think the of the Astros pitching staff is really going to come into question the series. With that in mind, when will we know Steve How you get a feel for a team like early you we all have things can change obviously but like richer I can usually get a feel for now some quarterbacks combat but how they're feeling that day and if they're. Okay. They're feeling at least at least most of the time. Sometimes you miss how will we know if mccullers is on today? for me it's always swing and miss on his curve ball in the strike zone. So if he gets a kid or to swing and miss when it would have been a strike, that's when you know he's got. if he has to go below the zone to get the swing this on the curve ball that's okay. But you know that he's got a chance to go seven innings of. Zero one or two runs of baseball if he can get swinging this strike in the strike zone. So that's the key for me in since he had that neck nerve irritation, he got the shot in his neck he's had three starts at them. And the curveball came back. That was it I mean we didn't see it. His first seven or eight starts or however many. It was the beginning of the season never saw the swing amiss curb all like we had in years past until his last three start. So that's what we're hoping for fastball curveball change supposedly added a cutter that he hasn't thrown. Will we see that? Much of that in this series or in this game should I say? What you need more than anything else the other team to think about it. So it's just another option where you can't sat on some of those pitches but he can throw you know a handful maybe three or four in Garner a strike or get back into the count or get a big strike out on a front door type cutter to writing about and things of that nature. I'm fine. But I would keep it five or less as far as new pitch going into series against the same. Hey, the eight bit swinging. That have been swinging well for me. This comes down to whether or not the the young kids in the Astros bullpen can throw strikes. I mean, it sounds like little league baseball but can they throw strikes? Steve Sparks after broadcaster joins US for his weekly visit here as he gets set to call game one of the divisional playoffs Astros and as in dodger stadium chevette ravine but he'll call it from here at at and T. Studios joins us on sports talk seventy I know he struggled some but he's a cagey veteran and we know how veterans come through in the postseason or at least we hope they do what messages send that. He's going to be pitch in game three. Her I don't think he's worried about. Getting a feeling for I. Don't think anybody's worried about getting their feelings hurt at this time ever especially him right Steve especially him he doesn't care about that stuff. I don't think he does it all. You know I think he understands what's best for the team he's fine and. You. Know you don't see the same type of disappointment he's more of a realist. There's no. Pretense with with Zach Cranky when he comes out of the game, it's just The type of guy who would say that was probably a good decision or something like that. You know he's just going to be honest. There's there's not a lot of fake fake upset that I'm coming out of the game type of stuff was that great so I think he understands that mccullers and farmer Valdez at this point in time give them the astros a better chance to get to know yeah, and he's He's speaking of being a veteran gets it. He's been down there. Enough feelings aren't hurt doesn't have ten skin guys like him and Jj Watt understand the importance in what goes on and what they're willing to St. sparks joins US here, Steve. The opposing pitcher today last five outings or solar been lights out and he's been a hound has Bassett. Steve With my dad. Yep. He's GonNa. Get it in and take credit for it saying. This guy has been a Hound Basset Hound I would never get credit. Absolutely not why would you do it? Saves I'm going to steal what are yours to. Hit, though he has been he's been phenomenal and that's going to he's going to be tough on hitters if he's pitching the way he has. Yeah the American League pitcher of the month or reasons and He figured a lot of things out. And one of the things is eating. He can leverage a lot of pitches and this is more old school than it is new school but he can throw a lot of downhill pitches because he's tall lanky and that adds to a lot of deception but he gets a lot of ground balls for the Astros and this is. This is a broken record GotTa get the ball elevated up that you can lift baseball hitting the ball on the ground. These days are out because of the shift so You just gotTa. Get it up a little bit. You got to think about that little box that somewhere in between you're five and your belly button for pitches that you can hammer and drive into the gap and easier said than done there's no doubt about it. This kid is really starting to figure some things out. There catcher a step back there too and For my here he's a, he's a good game planner they and they trust him implicitly the Chris Bassett. He's. You know there's there's only two pitchers left in the playoffs. Now they're in the top ten of era in the American League and that Garrett Cole is pitcher that the Astros are facing today Ham? He is a hound. It's unbelievable. It's. Imagine if Elvis Andrus was playing against him. Dog to it'd be. A Steve with that, you mentioned the young bullpen and and you know as you know the playoffs ramp up in every series, it gets a little more intense. There's no question. How with five straight days of baseball, it's even going to be more incumbent upon that staff and also the starting staff to try and give you more. So you don't have to tax it right Right. So yeah, you gotTa push them a little bit more and the Astros were much better built for a three game series. A are a five game series because of the absence of an off day and they're. Like you mentioned I think there's only if you want to be really honest, there's only a small handful of pitchers you trust right now to come in and throw strikes. So you're GonNa be holding your breath especially with the three bedroom minimum role I to bring in. I know liberate us or Josh James, or or some of those guys who have flat Andre Scrub. Who of slash some really cool thing during the course of the season at times but can you trust them in these big moment? Come in and throw strikes you gotta use them for three batters minimum in that makes things very difficult. So like you I'm going with my starter just a little bit longer just so you don't have to try to cover as many out this is you would ordinarily. If I game series that has no off days and what if Orel Hershiser was facing Bassett today? You know be a bulldog bulldog Bruce. Man So happy you're cracking yourself up. You know what Steve? Flooding just ask me I watch because my head exploded. I told you the first ninety minutes over the tax and so I have to dad joke by selfish ambition. You don't. I don't blame you Ma'am I. Think a lot of people's heads were exploding. There's no question about it and neither one of those guys were scrubs just to mention it. So I had to get that dad jokes too so. Kill Steve. I. Hope it's a great day for you. Hope it's a great day for the Astros and when we get you back on next week that they're moving on by that time because five games, it'll be done in a hurry and we'll look forward to discussing it with your brother take that Basset Hound and and run with tact run with it today brother. I. They have a great time. Yeah. That's a great Steve Sparks I. Do you ain't nothing but a hound dog tags? You want to go to break. Sakes. Yeah. I'm just in watching the Texans game over. Okay. So my dad jokes are far better than what you saw for. To give you that they probably are. I just can't do them anymore. You'll be Bassett takes about today Dudley. Will you be listened to see if Steve Uses it but I guarantee that you're thinking hound dog the whole time I guarantee it I put that in your head and I'm in your head right now notice. I mean your head right now but I can tell you this it is what it is sex. Mc You know that right? It is say I'll tell you what I know about you to. Crate guys. You just great guys. Great. Guys. sportstalk seventy right back. We'll talk astros. Going non stop. With former. Sean Salisbury. and. Steve on gets, to, call the game today. Right here, so there's no eighteen they get a week off if this goes five games, right? Literally get the entire week off right if he goes five games. Because they're working. So frigging hard in the afternoon for three hours. But that's right. Adam. Klein on calling you lazy bums out like I always great guys. Debatable. What else do they? Do they work? Very hard state stated do they try their best? And guaranteed three days off and you know what it is. What it is right is what it is. What I was told the Texans press conference yesterday that we got great guys and they never gave they kept fighting in the game. Because I guess when you're making that kind of money I, hope you folks at your job just keep fighting i. hope that maybe if you miss your real estate, it'd be like somebody else you miss a listing of your home that you're going to sell your house when you're when you're real estate agent or man, you just somebody came to you with a big account and they chose somebody else over you. I hope you keep fighting I mean because I'm sure your boss your big boss if you missed out on a two hundred, million dollar account at. At At Chevron probably. Pretty forgiving probably yeah. It'd be great guy. Great Guy. You know what they say. Good guys finish last in the Texans are in currently last place. In the division I love good guys off the field and I love respectful guys on it I I don't. Guys Knock your you know what? In the dirt on it and I don't like the sense of casual. There's a difference between relaxed and casual I'm on my quarterbacks that I trains ass all the time. Relaxed one thing don't give me casual into drop back. Don't give me casual about the whole team casuals different than relaxed. This team is the lack of urgency. is so palpable. It's UN- frigging believable and save the. They're not yet. I haven't heard it yet but saved. It's twenty twenty blame. Because there's urgency in. SEATTLE. There's Eagles yesterday and they. Okay. There's there's a there's a sense of urgency side I. Don't really WanNa hear you know the the excuse I don't I've heard too many of them, but the fact that does. Well. I'm disappointed in the performance the post game press conference to me even a whole new level. They're great guys. and. Well, we we hung in there. What. What would that listen when it says win loss? G. For great guys and then H for hung in there on when we go through the the college, a winning and losing, and that has a playoff implications. Let me know well, moral wins the text answer to. This you. Gosh. So there's Three months away because there was there was no more winning week one week two, but you can get a couple of close close. To what they got in that locker room. Great Guys Greg Is. They're all in their today singing kun-bae by probably roasted marshmallows and but if they're doing that so school out the owners doing right now. My as he teams that or he's got his thumb up his Monday aren't the river oaks close on Monday right to private Monday or Tuesday gets it open himself. To sits in their bound south and if he does. He. Gets rid of the guy who didn't open a four. Just starts over. Came in and I talked to you about that play. The on. I second drive of the game he steps. Is actually wrong. I'm looking at it again. Just like last week that it was six on six. It was not five on six thought originally David Johnson motioned into the backfield and stayed in blocked a Harrison Smith so Again. This time it's Tunsil who crashes in. The left side who crashes. So there's scheme is not sound it. No I mean 'cause they literally leave the defensive end the right defensive end that lined up across from tonsil they just let him free. And Dijon drops five-step drop, and then just stands there and expecting it to be blocked and it wasn't I don't understand why. If, you've got a guy over you normally in in a team. That pass rushing defensive end either one of now they switch side. That should be your best player right. One of if not your best pass rusher your second best pass rusher. Why are we leaving him unblocked again I'm going to tell you why because it's unsound and stupid football. Football. And it looks like I'm trying to see I. Don't have the all twenty two. So I can't see from behind but. Tell him that day and Nick Martin Double Team Defensive Tackle and You have like I said tonsil crashed down inside to pick up a blitzer and Let me give you the simplistic part of pass protection. They've got six blocking five with a free rusher. That's what they did. I actually saw one point yesterday to when the Vikings. Five couldn't block three Texans. That's bad protection right right. Right three. and. got a sack on cousins. Five dudes couldn't block three that's going to happen once in a while but it still looked ugly and you it's inexcusable five on three. That's two guys getting double teamed. Here's the other part of it. Is. I don't understand. With protection. There's a moral story as it's something during the week or something or the the. The ability the football Iq the ability to. Process information apply it is is not holding true with this team because. When they're six and you got six to block six, now you're going to get beat physically one time. You can't leave a guy in blocked. You just can't leave a guy in blocked when it six on six and then when the back gets out and it's five on five. You're. GonNa get beat once in a while TJ water or JJ Watt plane and other teams going to beat you one on one if it's five blocking. But you should not have to throw hot. On a five on five protection and when it's six blocking six and a seventh guys not coming then you expect as a quarterback to have it protected. I. Don't understand when it's six on six, and then six o'clock five in the guy you leave unblocked. Is a defensive end and over the left tackle. You don't put it back on him. But if you'RE GONNA put back at least put. Some warm body on him just a warm body I'm not even asking much just a warm body. But see they're so annonay like the defense yesterday is overly confusing I watched the in every snap of the game. Some of those past protections are not confusing. Mike left five on five protect five block the right guy you'll get beat physically. I can't continue to handle the mental mistakes that get me in trouble offensively and they happen time assignment alignment assignments about eighty percent of it. Then you've got to execute but if you're aligned right and your assignment sound. Good players will eventually make good place but when you already start out and the assignments, not right. It's like trying to hit it now for pro for an amateur trying to hit a par five, six, hundred yard hole and you're hitting an eight iron off the tee, you're already defeated. You got no shot. Yeah. You gotta at least give yourself a chance. So when you got five rushing. You Got Block five. At least get body on a body and six rushing with six protection you at least got a contact that guy and know who to get out to get him. They don't part of the time in which leads to another assignment breakdown which happens every frigging week and to me that's clearly you know just looking at the play again it's clearly on the Sean in the offensive line, just not reading it right? Because there is no. Quick hot thrill because it's Wrecked and protection wrong or somebody draw to crossers out of the slots and the tight ends going up the middle, and then there's one guy just running deep. On the outside. So if he threw the ball right away, it's probably picked off by the Middle Linebacker to the underneath crosser and so that's just clearly desha not moving the line, right? Like we've talked about and weeks passed or they're blowing assignment from the hut. Tons of stepping down when they're not surprised. You don't leave a guy over you unblocked bottom line. If you're an offense like you're an offensive Lineman, you're jobs to block somebody. Just somebody. Wrong Guy, we tell kids in high school go hit somebody in an office opposite Colored Jersey Block somebody. Especially, the guy over that would help.

Astros Game One. Today what? Three ten sound about right. Today is they're all two thirty or three every start this week so you will hear. Middle of the afternoon if you're at work. you can listen on the iheartradio APP Today's three Oh seven tomorrow is three, thirty, seven Wednesdays to thirty five. Thursday would be to thirty five and Friday would be to thirty five. Obviously foreign fiber if necessary but you can listen the iheartradio APP. We'll have. Pre Game Post game will be all your ashes coverage, but just go game. Wanted I plead at Camp Basset Hound. Versus mccullers Bassett's pants at Hound. That's his first name is Chris. Bassett. I. Thought it was you know he loves maybe the Astros can do something to take care of it. He apparently loves a drink a tunnel Red Bulls before he starts. Nice. He's a dog he's got a dog at approach. Get rid of Red Bull. Sags, you feel me you do not feel. Still Bassett's been the best pitcher in the in the well in the American League didn't state was pitcher the monitor the my has been really good. His last five starts of with some numbers. Yeah. Exactly and. The what appeared to be some timely hitting. Poor defense by Minnesota timely hitting by the Astros in the first two games right of the of the of playoff the wildcard. And fromberg continues and Christian heavier and Jose or Keady got some really good stuff for some guys who don't have a whole lot of. postseason experience, and in that case from the first two games some had none. Yeah, and so now is, does Bregman find his consistency? Can you get off and get after Bassett early, the as aren't exactly tearing the cover off the ball themselves. You think postseason experience and who've been in the while the as of been in the postseason. Most of these astros have been under world series pressure. Okay. So if it begins a new again. That becomes a thing in a series. Of course, you do I listen. Every like I mentioned about every series just like in football wildcard rounds different than the divisional round. It's different than the listened the choke factor or that squeeze around the neck choke I it's did exist. Now Make no mistake about the question is for young guys. Can you handle the tightening of it? We're not gripping the ball little hardy, not squeezing the dust out of all those things, and if you're struggling is a veteran wants the first thing you got you start tell yourself. I gotta get going got get going the key is and I know it's hard to do. The key is, can you take yourself into game five of the regular season right and I'm in a mode just got out of spring trap field it and apply that mentally to okay I, understand my. Grind has to be postseason grind you. I'm saying it's like when I tell quarterback about I, need an active violent lower body for Torque and and explosion but I need the upper body to be loose and look like you're board. Right? There's and there's a difference and it's the same thing here. I need the grind to be post-season. Oh Gosh, intense. Let's go but I need them mentality and approach whether you've been struggling whether you're young whether you're a veteran and you've struggled in past postseasons all those things to say. And it's impossible to do not not impossible. Sometimes improbable is a better word to do but the guys who can settle in quicker. Pitcher, for sure and hitters. To, swing it freely. We've all done guys when your grip and a golf club you got bet with your buddy, you're Gherman. China. Thank you. Very you just are the ability to to lighten up and this is bigger for them because more playing golf it's a few of our buddies watching when they're playing baseball the unlikely I would imagine like the NBA ratings which are plummeted. Battling out, people are going to watch and who doesn't Love Day baseball. So you get it. So the quick and I think you'll early for both pitchers doesn't mean you can't settle back in like. In the past Fromberg struggle or even this settling someone some people just start slow. But in the player, you don't want to start slowing me down three. Oh we've seen you don't want to be to this team single because once they get to their bullpen, they're tough to be they are and and and that you know look at the Astros Games against them the season all games are close basically but lost a lot of one run. Game bullpens, they were losing when they when they went to their bullpen and they didn't win those games, right? Exactly. So the ability to do it. Yeah. You always want every game to start fast but there's no talk about casual. You can't be casual. We all you got five days man five days, which equals five games and you hope it's done sooner if you're an Astros Fan, I'm sure Oakland is saying the same thing but it is. An emcee. In I to be able to kick into. Playoff mode and deeper into the playoff vote another in the intensity goes up. But Oakland grinds and Sodas. It'd be nice to get bats. We'll with both pitchers I I believe where their level of control or command is in in the first twenty, five pitch I like that mccullers doesn't have to go out there i. Today I would like to see Bassett how because I want to thank team? Yeah because I think that that team has. Look I get it the favorite. They noted the favourite. They've talked a lot. In the last days and I wonder if they come out to juiced up to where they. They overplay. As long as a pitcher doesn't you can see you're exactly right. So that's my question for the Oakland. A.'s Today's is extend with. Red Bull, because they've all this talk that they're going to be the team that takes them I mean there's There's a lot of expectation for a has. Failed a lot in the past up and with that sex I? It's going to be it's GONNA. Be a fun. Watch. I personally would have gone with proper. Too Young. To be honest I don't like the decision at all I don now dusty he's I mean he and Brett strong and the way they go that's on them but for me. mccullers would not be the guy starting today. Now listen he's got post. He's got some some Moxie but. It's more risky than Frahm I think has been their best pitcher and I always think you start game with your best pitcher and I. Think proper should be telling that rubber today but. We're not making those decisions this. This would not have been my choice even though I think mccullers can. If you will know early if he's Steve set his curveball being swung and missed at me, and the reason why I don't like it so much as just the fact of the way these series are set up it's five games and five days if he goes out there and tanks which we've seen through that you're. Working you'RE GONNA. Game if you get down big with him on the mound and throw somebody that is just Slice need that can come out and give you a four innings. Game and hope he's kicking, ass. And you hope he kicks ass and if he doesn't, you just make them eat it you make him or you make mccullers eat it a little bit more than you. Maybe you're comfortable at the end just that's the. He's so. Inconsistent he's so up and down that when he's bad, he's really really bad when he's good he's really really good. So that's my concern was starting Lance mccullers that if he's bad and he doesn't show up any remember he has not pitched since the twenty sixth I believe. So it's been quite a while and I don't know if that's why they're starting them game one but if that's the reason. I don't like it in just I would worry my do like what Steve said earlier see sparks said that I think doing it this way. You Trust Rom or more on short rest to come out of the bullpen, and like you could start both these guys on short rest in game five. It's like I do like that to where you do a tandem type of thing. But I still yeah I would not have made this decision today what I know hate it hate it like I'm not fearing it necessarily I think he'd pitched a lot better after he came back from that injection but I hate it I just don't like it wouldn't have been my pick and I personally guys I'm just sorry to tell you maybe you guys disagree. I believe game ones are always huge. Oh I do and I know. Does this team specifically exactly and asked, your team. I would have liked to posted to post my score. Right off the bat meaning. I want to be up I want the as to chase you win game one you had to win two of the next four. Exactly. It's a pretty I mean I some five hundred right I just like for me I. Just. I like the feeling of knowing I've got one posted near chasing me. Now I'd like that and all of the series is over if you're down one but I wanNA, throw my best on what to set the tone and Temple WanNa wear your ass out and say come get us that's I want it and I don't know. If. I put it this way I think it's an anxiety ridden game I think all of them will do which especially but today curve by. If it's working or it isn't because he can't spot his stuff. He's guys don't swing right and the the other scary thing isn't it's the exact opposite from the as you just don't know what you're going to get from this bullpen and they're going to actually have to be used in the series you can't hide them by. Like you kid. You'RE GONNA. Have to throw these guys. You're going to have to put somebody in a spot where you're probably not comfortable with them and he's going to have to step up and if not. Or football camps. That young kid who's with the older kids and who's a good player, but it doesn't Simpson that when it's his turn to kind of sits in the back, you have to call him with a little nervous maybe every. Rep. passed in because the A quarterback that's a couple years older him jumps in and takes it. This is one guess what you don't get to do you ain't duck and anybody this week not at all you don't get the duck anybody. So you're back there. You'd better, you don't want the calling the ball Pinkas. That means you're starters doing well, but when it comes be answered the damn thing because. You can't duck anybody in five straight. Days. Of Bullpen. For teams. Did the. Bachelor struggling for both and you gotta get going and quite frankly. Everybody is going to be emptied at some point this everybody CNN, you would think at least in a five. If it goes five, you're gonNA see them all. Yeah. All right. You're seeing them all eljay will get to you and the other callers will come back and we will also stake it out. A little bit later on since we were so passionate about the Texans which we are in my head exploded and what a poor poor start to the season. It's sports sportstalk seven ninety. Sean Salisbury show the group is here. Up at the crack of dawn. At the crack of Stacey Jennifer Caron. At least he was football glory days nowadays, it's up at dawn which on. Sean Salisbury. Show. Sports. Talk Seven Ninety Role Longhair Eljay in how you doing game one astros today what you got. Man I'm doing great. It's a Beautiful Day in Houston I'm glad we're talking Astros baseball because the Texans don't deserve an ounce of my mental or emotional energy NC man. It's always great to talk baseball with you just want to respectfully disagree with you guys on the mccullers decision I just a couple of points on a make on his I I like it because I you know the guys pitching great I hate to give that guy to long off and then maybe he loses some of that momentum. So from that standpoint, I kind of understood why dusty put them number one But to me, the biggest thing is we talked about this all season. This team has been missing swagger, and if there's one guy on this team that brings the swagger, it's Lance. mccullers man and I'm real excited to see what he goes out and does. I think he's GonNa? Pitch. Well the other point I want to make real quickly as I actually think this game is probably a little bit more important for the as and the Astros. Just from the standpoint you know there are better team I understand that or at least they have been there got better bullpen but the thing that they don't have that we have in spades. Experience at the Astros lose I don't think that they're gonNA panic I don't think they're gonNA start pressing. But if the as lose and you put that pressure on them, it's a big question mark as to how they're going to respond. So it's important for us to get out there and get it right so that pressure on them but I don't think that we're GONNA panic if they win so anyway, Hey, look great day go stroz Eighty eljay great point. I know you yeah, respectfully. Disagree it's fine I listen I. Don't hate the mccullers thing I just I would have pitched from her but. They're saying. About. Him being sworn colors going game would have been fine. Yeah I'm you. I would have gone Fromberg. been the best pitcher and but the the swagger if he's going, right. Then his his his stones drop even further and people start to feed off. There's no question and I completely agree. That pressure falls on the as and how they'll handle being down one when they've been the best team in the division all year long. So. Yeah. There's no doubt fast starts important to get up one make them chase couldn't agree more, and then you know then you get your best pitcher hauling it and game to which could be. Your up to because fromer is really really good now and he's pitching good and now so you can I didn't WanNa, say steal this one today but the way Bassett's pitching upset tonight it's like a steal but I think we do it to remember to the the as aren't some offense. They all of their role numbers worse than yours this season, right? You're not facing with the Indians did in there. I mean with the Yankees did in their first two playoff games in the wildcard round, right? Yeah. That's a you're not for what they get ten runs, ten runs, and both eggs to twenty runs total for those first two games. Didn't they have twenty? Twenty, two, twenty, two was ten. Yeah it was I think it was twelve and ten right Yankees. As. The. As aren't exactly swinging bat like that this second so and you're not the dodgers lineup. So Yeah L. It's great point. So today we'll get a chance to he's right about the swagger thing. Maybe just beating the twins the way they did towards the end. It felt like they got a little bit of that back I mean to me like I we're everybody's a key like the bats had to be great in this series. I need more than anything. Good bats and your team sags as it. Talking about swagger I need I, need Alex. Bregman beyond. The swagger point to me just doesn't hit because he's a pitcher they've been pitching. Well, they've they've really well Minnesota I mean this lineup shouldn't need swagger from a pitcher. Swaggering their biggest and Best Bang. into his. Co. Seasons in the past I think more than any of them in twenty eighteen when they played Cleveland and then Boston and they did this last year too. But to me that's when it became most evident. Yeah. The two teams there they were terrified of throwing him baseball anywhere near the zone. It changed the way that the lineup was moved about and it made the lineup longer and more difficult to get through because they wouldn't throw him strikes the dude at third base. has to hit yeah. He has to be here because when to win, he's hitting. There's just an attitude about the rest of the team and says, well, he's like Mikey and the lifestyle commercial let's get Alex Bregman to do it. He'll do any boom and they feed off it right. So and now if you're fortunate enough that Bregman hidden and mccullers them were. That Hook for strikes and they're swinging and missing while the then I'll see game too, right. Yep. So what you guys doing with I mean I'll be I'll be watching the game and having something. For. The Game I had this discussion with wax on our pockets late last week. And talking about the lineup would I mean I would move out to Dow but he also came back with the point of do you want to in Maldonado and those guys that have really been hitting the ball well lately all bunched together at the bottom was just an easy. Or would you rather spread them out to me personally though I would rather be springer Brantley Bregman and then just give me the rest. I see I'm fine with the line of. Best hitters right now getting the most at bath. Give Me Tucker at four and guess what's going to happen. Move. In anywhere in the there's just nobody Bob. Yeah he's not GONNA move I. I mean like it's talking point. Really, well, where he's at right now I would like to have Brantley in a spot where I might have two guys on in front of him. Instead of the one, the way that he's swinging the bat most I don't know. That two of those guys are because you know one of them's not GonNa, be able to. So that's the whole thing he's sex I think you have to understand this and I believe you do what we all do. I think the lifetime achievement award. Keeps him in the Up Gro- at the top. Released had we saw at the end of the season and get hits in the series against the against the twins? It's not like he went out there and. He didn't strike out. I thought the aback qualities getting a little bit better. I know it's about results there have not been and this guy. Cross my fingers, and hope that it Hap- Bassett can make a lot of hitters look fat any probably going to make them today right I ain't just based on what they've done the season as a team. But gimme one Gimme a couple of clutch hits and good pitching and let's see what happens. Yeah let's go. Let's go dangerous. What are you say l. f. g. let's. Go. I. Guess. I'll dangerous there's no question. There's no question. This isn't this isn't that walk where eight feet before the cliff you know what I'm saying where it's an easy walk you could paid yourself. It's that one you see that makes you like. ooh, there's only two yards between the cliff the wall he's like me when you're you're you're. You're flirting now Fleming. Even with the weather he's been hitting. He's been back. Yeah. I mean if Korea pops up. For the most part he isn't he's struggled I, help put out a five maybe he gets in an spot where he's got two guys on in front of them and they have to pitch batteries want to change a pitch to see him up something something but just leaving them in the two hole he's just hasn't been gave him today, and if it doesn't go well, it looks really bad. Then given the Golden Sombrero, you gotta move him. Is What you're saying George had Golden Sombrero once and then. Yeah. Yes. Getting. Dodger Stadium Yes. It was but you don't the point is that if it goes that. Yeah he goes bad day I. Think about it. Yeah. Makes Sense say you want him out now let's see. I'm going to start this. Yeah. Just make the move and like even if it's the five which I know is an important spot, but maybe it gets them some pitches if Bregman and Brantley around in front of them or something along those lines I dunno swagger. Continue create the swagger though to for sure if if they're hitting a number and a dude over third base has to get rolling. Yeah. No questions sportstalk seven ninety. Let's stake it out next guys Sean South ratio. Stays on. The. HOUSTON. Sports bubble for the city of. Because I love the city Sean Salads, very get in the bubble on ninety. Sean here. There's now the Salisbury steak stakeout. Steak. On the Sean Salisbury show. Guys I don't know what you got in your mind but let's changeup pitch. Let's take out across the league. Some of the things that happened yesterday. How's that sounds good let's start. Aside from the fact, the NBA ratings are down what sixty eight percent game to not good feels like it. It might be a hundred I don't know. Let's just start in the NFL. Question Real quick before we do this have you watched a full game yet and I've watched. I've watched zero seconds of the finals. Sex Truth. No, I've not watched a full game. I mean I've probably watched I. DIDN'T WATCH ANY A game three. I've probably watched roughly two quarters games one and two I as a Laker Fan. GROWING UP I've watched about the same as you maybe a little maybe even a split second life it's like half the time though. While say for all three games I forget their on I come across too late. Yeah. I come across it and I say, okay. Let me turn it on for a bit and I kind of get bored and I turned I gotta come clean. You guys wouldn't be watching if it was on at five o'clock. No No. Better change on at least flip it on. For a minute. So there you go. So it's just it's. It's It's so by the way. Yeah it really is all right. What you got sick. Once you start it and start in the NFL. Colts get to three and one nineteen eleven over the Chicago bears. If you like offense, this game was not for you. because. The offenses were not good. nope. Putrid offenses I chose me this Kansas City Indianapolis is defense is starting around in a four man. They're they're really good. They are playing really good football. It's Nick foles. Is Great coming off the bench and his great in Philadelphia as a starter and other cities. He always seems like he falls into just being a guy I ate sand but it's true and I know what you're bear sex I like him better than Bisky because because you'll keep you in it and when he comes it's almost like he's a great sixth Man Hood the bears be the first team ever to play one quarterback for a half and then the second quarterback for the other half. You try that, but I haven't seen it before in the NFL did. Do Tommy Maddox and somebody else when they dropped join. May. Maybe I'm crazy but I've seen bless you. I've seen teams rotate quarterbacks briefly in the NFL and it happened a hamlet. Were they bad Were they a bad team just trying to get a young quarterback some run. That's what would be my quite like the bears expect trying to find guys. Have a super bowl type defense with a with an offense. That's top. No. Bull. Type. Have like a a top ten pick off right they're not. They're not very good and falls down. So Hey, it's one start this year for falls I'm not against a good defensive. Another's defense that is super bowl caliber and the falls gives them a better chance to win. The problem is their offense stimulus back for the season two six. Yeah. Ya Colorado he went on to I. Home he's gone so they're going to have to dial up, they're going to have to manufacture wins and get some defensive touchdowns, but it was a very ugly game but. The Colts did just enough and defensively I actually expected more from the colts offense rivers just kind of which is fine as long as you're not on the ball, the other team. On a continuous basis and your Defense Zenit you'll win. But you're not gonNA win many games this year especially in the AFC quarterbacks score nineteen points a I mean I had not watched a ton of colts this year just spots. Watching that game yesterday I mean I think I was completely wrong on Phillip that dude just seems done he he can't. He just chuck's. Yesterday he really should have had four picks. Let me tell you. He just chucks the ball. He when he throws the ball into trouble, it's got minimal velocity and his feet art set. Yeah. I said the beginning of my biggest concern is if everything's not perfect around where you can set his feet, put his back foot in the ground anchor it and throw it on time trouble if that guy has to reset and move a little and and is thrown off balance, he is one of the worst in the League now. So he's got to have a game plan everything going in rhythm, and that is going to be the reason in the end. The colts don't. Advanced deep into the playoffs. To say he's an upgrade because he's smart he's been there a million times but when it comes to the physical gifts, if it's out of off schedule the that's gonNa cost the class. Win this Dirksen very well may but they're not there I would Tennessee still has the shot to go further in the play. All you gotTa do is take him off his Mark Take Philip rivers. Office mark and you got no shot right item say the Tampa Bay buccaneers and Game was pretty while yesterday but the chargers continued to get really good performances out of Justin Herbert is he going to continue to have that job or should they even consider if tyrod is ever ready to go give it to him higher if you listen. I. I have much respect for tyrod Taylor as any backup an I do. and. He's been a solid starter the problem it's limited and that's why he's been a backup. He's not a big chance taker. I'm just telling you now that if you honestly. If you WANNA, get to the next level. Just talking about to the next level he has to play. You, have to. You have to start tyrod I mean Herbert he's already proven now. Okay. He gives us some different stuff. You gotTA start it. You have to start I. It's a bummer. A guy loses his job doing an unfortunate injury. But YOU YOU CAN'T START Herbert's now past the point of of wondering if you should start not you have to start and you're one in three and it's not like tyrod Taylor comeback and lead you on this. Right. You know big ass winning streak to put you into the ploughs. He's starting to get some run. He's putting up good numbers. He's keeping you in Games and the chargers sent me a super bowl you. You can't give this back. This is. To? Well, yes. This is amazing time for him to just get right in the rhythm of the NFL and here's how people thought yesterday and I know it. I saw it and watched it and read it on twitter. I, know how they think Brady, throws a pick six. Now I'm a little concerned about. Why Bruce continues to have him through a wide side out cuts. And Thomas linked with the football in his arms. No longer strong enough to throw deep out cuts comebacks to the wide side of the field and be late he's got to be on time well through. QUARTER, undercut it takes it to the House for touch that I'm telling you. It's not a ninety eight, mile an hour fast ball still ninety. But he's throwing time and rhythm. And he can still sidestep and beach because he's so mechanically sound unlike rivers right now. But I can tell you this. Did I guarantee after the pick sixteen hundred dollars thinking Oh, boy they're down seventeen points Tom Experiments not working it's Kinda working but it's not good enough for them to win and then the do goes and does five touchdown pass plays like brady brings you back from seventeen points down and you're thinking and that was on the Road Right And Rub forever without his number two. xactly right. So Auto J it was it was one of those before you hit I. Didn't age well, Brady is far from done and I'm GonNa. Tell you what watching the saints they came back from behind yesterday as well and won a football game what in Detroit I saw early and they were down a bunch I was like at by the end of the day. Don't say. They went unanswered unanswered an answer, the Bingo they were back in. They've had a graphic A. Team Parlay yesterday five team was to pay me a bundle and yes, we're cost me the Baltimore Ravens half-point. They won by fourteen instead of fourteen and a half or more since. Fifteen partly. That's neither here. Nor there I figured I'd throw that in because it would have been a nice a nice pickup. In the next few days but. The Saints The saints both quarterbacks got to throw in rhythm now with Brady and brees I promise you. If you thought Brady was done. Then you blinked and he brought you back from seventy nine and went all Tom Brady on you and threw five touchdowns. That may springboard that franchise into thing. Oh. We're pretty good again and Thomas back. So that's the best game. He's had this year and. Just in case you know we all watch last year. What happened in new? England he just did not look right. He does lead the NFL in deep passing yards this year and four weeks to do. Well, that's part of Bruce's area, right? Exactly. When people say can't though the I know he can tho down the field when he goes one two three from the gun to five hitch and and get it out. It's the across the field. If you're a split and he's usually his whole career to twenty years, he's always anticipated phone on time if he's just a split second late in a Corner Squadron, will you saw yesterday and it wasn't perfect throw on time got taken to the house. Oh, they're going to we'll. We already knew they had vertical passing game and Tom was going to be fine. What they've added is efficiency underneath and which doesn't have Tom's already thrown two fixes this year old he may throw another one. So what three in one? So what's still winning football? What just as long as you come back out of it and throw five touchdown no more fixing the game you're GonNa win a lot of games. How about this game you throw fifty eight times for five, hundred, two yards, four touchdowns you do have one pick could have had a few more but you did. But the other team ran the ball forty times for three hundred and seven yards. The cowboys lose forty nine to thirty eight to the Cleveland browns three great straight Games Baker Mayfield stunk thirty times left twenty, three, twenty, three, thirty, you think with all those points they scored that he'd thrown forty five times I'm going to tell you about this. Jerry Jones you better. Hope you sign that Prescott long-term because I'm telling you he's right now he's the only thing keeping you afloat. As a Daska. Your defense is absolutely humiliating in the run game and all all around. If Prescott is not throwing it all over the lot there get blown out in every game and they don't lose the quite frankly they could be, by Atlanta. And they are they are winless if that if Prescott, doesn't win this dude talk about carrying a burden around that franchise team blows defensively, they're embarrassing embarrassing against the run and the points they're giving them all and they don't care. Let me think let me throw this at. You'RE GONNA get paid your deck and you're saying We've basically paid everybody but myself, we're not GONNA have money to spend on anybody defensively. You look at team and say, maybe this isn't where I should be on you look at it and say, I, do it's the cowboys what I do. I'm Bill Belichick I. Say let me stay. Let me think about. Let me let me if cam decides to go somewhere else wants big money a little older version. Now listen cams going to get paid. He stays healthy goes through this and fine either New England going to pay for somebody else because I'm this is a great comeback year for him to although the covert is slowed them down there playing what Tuesday then. Tonight. Start at five and the other ones that sentence right? It's doubleheader. So with with. Other teams are GONNA be standing in line. If you're Dak Prescott, you listen now they can franchise him again and pay a lot of money forty. That's any deserve every penny IOS hill deserve every penny because he there's not much more he can do right now but his job is to win so you'll get that but you can't. You can't stop the run if you're and you don't win throwing the ball fifty plus times, he's done that twice this year already. Vice, can you just give them to my? Defense stopped Bella checks to come up with something whether it's cam whether it's the press type free or position himself to get somebody he's got find somebody if he doesn't stems the guy and if he does then they'll find somebody else. But Dak Prescott is putting up some some monumental numbers them hurt I don't know because he's Starting Yeah. That tells. If he does then they'll find somebody else. But Dak Prescott putting up some. Some is monumental number hurt I don't know because he's Starting. That gives it tells me. Is Healthy and not playing tonight. There's a message there and it's. Just, this. You? Damn. Right. It is You know it's not healthy is stressing about worker maybe being out of work stop hit the reset button I got options for you start your new life as an it pro.

A lot of things stuck out to me and the NFL yesterday phone fourteen zero and three teams dangerous. The forty niners learned that. The Joe Berle I'm GonNa tell you. Talking to another quarterback that played in the League and he and I were having a conversation. On Friday. And we were talking about Jill Burl. And you guys have heard me say even last year before the draft I thought he had the most pocket presence I've seen even on a bad offensive line here in Cincinnati the best the best pocket presence I've seen in. Fifteen years quarterback coming out. Of His pocket presents better Andrew Luck. Just telling it was presence and as as been pocket presence no one win his pocket presence. If our guy here had his pock now, listen Watson can step out of stuff that he did it again yesterday a dead a dead solid sack steps out of it if Watson had boroughs pocket presence. He's an easy easy even at another level and Watson's phenomenally spectacular. Makes mistakes has to get better do things but we and he he he knows it and it's not just is what it is. A little less cash a little more fire in their belly but boroughs pocket presence is phenomenal. Learn that is it continues to reveal itself. The Cleveland browns are starting to look like a football team. They really are although it is the cowboy I don't care the competition. They haven't played tough teams that it's going to be really tested when they played Pittsburgh and Baltimore but there are at least starting to Dave Baker is back to being a little more accurate. They're making supplies. The buffalo bills are real. They didn't play a real good game today in one. And they went on the road and beat the raiders. The Buffalo Bills are are a hell of football team. They're going to be danger on telly they're dangerous. The saints are not as strong as you thought, they were to begin season although Nice Comeback Win. And Seattle playing semi ugly yesterday still found a way to do it on the road against a a Miami team that some point in time going to be really good. Yeah. That's what I was. GonNa. Say think about it I mean they have won one game they beat Jacksonville but they're one in three. But every single game they've played it felt like. They. Make you work for everything that you get. We've seen what Seattle's done the first three weeks and then they go there and it's they still get the win but Miami makes it tough on you every single week unlike here that it's just easy. It's just too easy when you walk into this building or they walk into yours, it's a completely different mindset. They're both bad same thing with the bengals the millennials aren't good job boroughs getting hit every frigging play seriously he can't run through his life was just going to look and see how many sex he's got fifteen sacks already guy is the guy is an and you know what? It's not affecting his player, his vision. He's not looking at the pass rush. He is going to be a great football player. Yeah borough he's already proven it. Yeah. I have zero questions about him. No Zero I have questions about can you get him some players up front because when you do, he's the of guy that's GonNa turn guys you've never heard of into better players I'm just telling you he has boroughs different and we mentioned and tonight we've got four months the the chiefs, the Patriots are an overachiever this you. Now we'll see if we can go on the road and deal with it I don't know why stems not starting. If he was your backup and the one was the reason you weren't going out and getting an I don't WanNa hear while they're going to play newest Kansas City on the road. He's too young for the Stop It. You know I don't play that excuse. So if he's banged up or they trust Hoyer more what message does this send but doing going to Kansas City and then who's the other one? Oh, we don't have four March teams. We have three monster teams because Atlanta's not that good. They played green. So it might be a high scoring game three. Too but yet somehow someway the Atlanta Falcons will fold up their tent, the third quarter and fourth quarter Lou. Even if they're if they're up three touchdowns, deal not turn off if packer fan don't turn the TV off because if you're in Atlanta Falcons Fan, you might WanNa turn this the TV it feels like that I don't know what the spread is in that game but me like a thirty, eight, twenty, four, Thirty, eight, twenty, eight. On, the los take the over I. Have I have I, know six and a half a real quick rockets. Note remarks Stein coaches your. Colossians. Says John Lucas is emerging candidate in the rockets search for new head coach. K., we'll destroy there's more run to the Lucas talk then obviously, there's been a little bit but the sun to it. Okay tough. Tough. In real quick with the packers I. This just. tweeted this a little bit ago Davante Adams announced. He is out for tonight and what? He's a special player I'm not real worried about. Putting offense together even without right and they they become a devastating. Have the kid that broke out last week I just completely. Not Lizard WHO's calling lizard. Lizard he will not. He got hurt last week and he broke out which means Aaron goes. Twenty, eight to thirty, four for three, hundred and eighty, five yards and three touch I think they still have Marquez Valez gambling. That Guy And guess what and they got that guy the words number twelve who's pretty good. Just just pretty good rich what you got. Hey Good Morning Sean go back in time a little bit too guy that I absolutely love old coach Bill parcells and something that he said that people around here and people in the touch organization need to step up and admit when he said you are what your record says you are because the the excuses coming out of Kirby drive or the most frustrating thing of this whole mess you stood up and said. Once we got s kicked. You know it's a matter of pride. You know something like that. But what I heard I don't know if you caught this. Brian actually stood up and said. Arrogantly is there any other way that he would say anything he's stood up at said well, we haven't lost became the division yet. I mean. It just makes your head one exploded. Really. Did explode the beginning it. Thanks very much. My Man I. You're exactly right. It's frustrating. Like I said to tell me you got great guys and that you at least fought. Is. It's almost like a cry for help. To to let everybody and please hey, we're we got great guys trying hard every teams trying hard. That's what you get paid to do bill. Yeah. I don't WanNa hear it an adult the it's so it's just now they're just they're just. Grasping at crap. Well, we played we have lost a division game. Expect you to listen to it as gospels what they do. It's just loser. You know what? It is the press it's a losers lament. That's exactly what it is. Hundred percents losers lament when you say hell is what it is. We we just you know we we played hard. We've got great guys. Bill everybody's got great guys. But you know we look great guys yet whether do charity work and all that. But on Sunday I, want I wanNA team the wins and execute I've got great guys on the coaching staff to or they great teachers every week are you advancing them these guys advancing to play coaching staff I accountability that building is is unbelievable when I don't believe in Arundhati laundry but I do believe every now and again you gotta call guys out without calling them out if you know what I mean yeah my guys can't tackle right now and if they don't get better, things are going to change simple. You're not calling one name out. We can all see with the naked eye don't insult my damn intelligence. Don't. My I got to pick up more hot reads on the line on quarterback on on the back on tied in I got throw with more accuracy I gotta run the ball better I can you start putting people on watching including yourself? Because if bill is looking at it honestly. And really didn't realize part. He's allowed to say this because he knows right now he's under zero fire, and if he wants to win as much as his abrasive attitude says, he does stop telling me you've got great guys in the you know what we tried harder. We fought you're planning all in three-team you fought. Oh you thought. Yeah well, good. That's that's exactly what okay. I'll make a deal. You fought give half your paycheck back because you fought but didn't win. Everybody should get the. Pay. Everybody. Thirty million just because they fight boy we hung in there. Don't make me throw up in my mouth. All you gotta do is Field Yates tweet from last night the Houston Texans are spending two hundred and fifty, five million dollars in cash on their roster. This season than any other team in the NFL and they owe their first and second round picks to the Miami Dolphins next year their own four, and let's remember of all the major injuries we've seen around the league they have zero and let me also tell you this. The Houston Texans, we're going to start doing jit just so it looks better. We'll get to start scheduling them on Friday night and you know exactly what I mean. Sports talk seven ninety. Shots. Shells Very. This is the Sean Salisbury show. Hour number four. Yeah. The you know what? Our caller is rich I believe was is exactly right. that. You are who you record says you are, and in some cases worse and in some cases, it's better, right? Yeah. The the if you're a Cincinnati Fan, you have to be excited, hell yes. You have to be excited. You got that dude looks like if you're a Miami Fan, I think you've gotta be excited. If you're Texans fans, you're you're you got you got dry heat throw up in your mouth. Yeah. That feeling of that burned. Watching this well, as I told you just the coach at ain't just the players. It's a combination of all of them. Position Coaches, players every single person on that roster, and the coach has a hand in this. Isn't it? is they're doing what they're supposed to do told you guys before the show I mean me personally I'm still waiting for to Sean to take that next step I mean we been I think he's just kind of been same guy since he got in the League. Had nearly damned good took a little stop in and give them that he matured a little bit but it's the same stuff. He is not taken that superstar step in my opinion and to the point where it doesn't matter who's on his team. Here's the well Hopkins was honest team, right? Well yeah but I mean. That's what you're saying doesn't matter Rogers has gone through receiver accuracy and he took that step Roy. Wilson. Will they've all? They take that step to the being a superstar quarterback We don't have to hide our love for Watson Right I. have. Looked at a lot of them and watch a lot of I and it has nothing to do with him being here in Houston I give the same praise. If he was in any other city, the guy is phenomenal. There's phenomenal player but. If we're doing our job right and not pandering to the fact that just because he's the quarterback Aaron makes forty million dollars to sean what you're put it this way I see the same things from now I saw a rookie. I do stepping out of trouble making spectacular slow starts at times. Missing easy throws missing some hots inside of just what he's good enough to step out of it. And while groundhog day exists in the Texans, there are some things that are groundhog day with his game right now they just are at times. He looks a little casual to me and gets a little bit wide and long mechanics wise and and yet the reason why is that he so spectacular and bringing you back like almost wanNA forgive early mistakes, but he's not the only listen. You can't say. Watson he's not the big problem. He's not even the small the kind of the big problem, but he is we judge quarterbacks by how they elevate players. and. You're exactly right. Could be considered a super superstar. Okay. Like I said I could go through people don't know the names of all the receivers in Seattle over the years all the names in New England over the Green Bay wide receivers in Seattle Big Ben I mean like I said Watson Scott. The skillset. There is another level to his game. And that level is fast start. Middle Start. In the whole time. Tour your shoring up the see he so physically gifted and got a high football. IQ. But he misses some things and then throw the ball away does some things that Prevent him from the next level. Yeah. They do and you can you can. You can decide how it's built. No, it isn't bill listen I've I've ripped his rear into shreds today Bill O'Brien I think you've got a gut, the franchise and you've got Guel all also. Speaking of getting the franchise have something from Peter King's Monday morning column that you'll be interested in. He says in his column, he's got a section on O'Brien being in trouble. and. It's terrible. Start their off to all the dealings that he made. That have led them here as a GM as well. It says owner Kalmyk nares been more hands off than his father franchise founder Bob but Callum McNair could have a decision to make after the season to actually O'Brien brought in smart and authoritative Jack Easterby to run the front office in April two, thousand nineteen if O'Brien goes could easterby his handpicked front office chief stay in revamped organization I wouldn't bet against it. That's what you need to know about them. Okay. You you clear house. You gotta go and we don't know what Jackie's does. Well, he said he was out there whole bads and training camp is a name, the face, the whole thing of the organization. Yeah, I can't wait to remember all those times you saw. Ron woolfe come down hold pads at the in for the packers drills wide receiver you know what guess what coach? Go coach wide receivers if that's the case. So for me. LISTEN THEY NOTHING If this continues he has to be on a hot seat number one I don't care how much power yes. You're going to have to swallow the money and move on. Secondly. I've ripped into shreds, but for anybody to suggest that every single play or non play that's made. So, here's my point. If you'RE GONNA give a guy credit for a sack. then. We should be saying, well, Bill was great call by bill build on call the defense now one. So that's on Anthony Weaver and Romeo Cornell and guys who executed on defense. Period Bill does has zero to do with the defense none period. So blame that on them. That's their position. They're part bill overseeing it who hires something to do and and yesterday i. Sacks Whitney. mercilus gotten had eight tackles going in he stepped his game up yesterday but it wasn't enough because he to sack say still gave the edge and allowed those guys to run roughshod over him in the in the in the running game. We've already said that their pass rushes decent as a whole against Lamar Jackson was decent against cousins but not enough well. If you're going to. Concert, you can't have it both ways folks. You can't say what? What? A what a nice tackle by the secondary. And then when the secondary's out of position blamed bill for that. Even. Though I'll re they need to change Bill O'Brien is not making them better and I I don't know how they're responding to bill anymore because it doesn't seem like they are which is on both. But if the Shawn Watson has a wide receiver open and throws a fade route and misses him by four that's not bill's fault against single coverage. So it falls on the quarterback if Bill O'Brien, they've called the right protection and somebody steps down and doesn't block the guy that's supposed to. That's called lack of focus in the meeting room not understanding your football Iq you don't process information fast enough. So it's a whole it starts at the top but every single thing that goes wrong. It's not just the head coach and anybody that just says, one hundred percent responsibility falls on Bill O'Brien for their own four start then you're hyperbolic hyperbolic and you're wrong but. They would get better production for somebody else because when it coach in the Post Game Press Conference tells me. We got great guys and we hung in there. Meaning we after getting our ASS kicked by three team that didn't get to practice all week. I don't want to hear it. Mentioned that to me is you've lost your team and quite frankly US law. You've lost your sense of what it takes to get better. All you gotTa do is listen Jj Watt Watson it senator. Now that's a pros pissed hit. It says J. JJ Watt for me one more time in case you missed. This is what your head coaching quarterback and rescue team. This is how you're supposed to feel when you lost to an three team in your own four and not getting better than this terror. It's Depressing. It sucks sucks. I don't know any other way to put it. like I said, I don't know any other way than to work harder. I know that working less is not the answer. So. I'm going to work even harder. There's a part of me. I'd hate to see him partways that try to get something for him and let that guy go play for a winning team. If? You're one in six or whatever hadn't into the trade deadline. Drafts. Somebody giving you a second round pick for the guy. You'd probably get a third round. They say if he plays a full season, he gate goes to a Sacramento. FORTHR- forthright goes to a third a third no problem. But it gets to the point now that you've got to start thinking about pieces that you're going to have to sell off because you're not getting any better and please don't, and I know the season's not over but please don't tell me at Owen for you're holding out hope. Oh, they beat Jacksonville they're back. Okay. They should be Jacksonville but you know what? Great guys and they hung in there is no team. This team should be because they're not a good team. Are. Caller said, they are what the record says. And if okay, let's say you're one in six real quick through you know brandin cooks. He's a guy that you could deal. Get A fifth round pick for a WHO cares you may cut will fuller you had. A second. Okay. If you'RE NOT GONNA sign willfuller because he's going to be out of your price range because you just didn't WanNa pay. Deandre Hopkins, now you're GonNa pay this guy, sixteen, seventeen million dollars if he continues to do what he's done early in the season. Trade them it's time. Kids something fire sale from the top. Because it's been. It's I. I'M NOT A. Quick Switch Guy on fire and people are cut I'm not but I am a after five or six or seven years of seeing. The same thing also is just a few different rapper bodies. It's the same thing different name on the back of the Jersey same result you got Jacksonville Tennessee Green Bay. Two of those games are going to be very, very tough on you old year staring at one six. And don't again like I said with the Vikings don't count out the jags cause you're a bad team you're playing another bad team. Lost to them step in beach you almost lost them last year at home Jacksonville actually gets to practice a full week at least as. We can't just count the jags as a win while they're not playing. Well, we can't just let them as a win because the Texans are playing well Jj Watt Kudos to you for calling it like it's supposed to be called and for for being bothered by losing. And letting US know about it. The head coach needs to do the same. You ought to put some some dudes on the Guillotine and let them know that their job, their asses on the line, including you yourself. If you're the head coach because I don't care what good guys are not own four starts. Good guys end up playing somewhere else. So two coaches, sports talk seven hundred Dr Jeff wits Whitsett Vision Dot COM Guy Whitsett. VISION DOT com. I used my free consultation because I had heard that he was the best I said okay. It's a couple of years ago. Let me let me find out what's up. So what I do I call seven, three, three, six, five, seven, nine, seven, one, three, three, six, five, nine, seven, nine, nine, and said. Doc what can you do for me? Well, I got a guy who's performed tens of thousands of these procedures and surgeries I found out that it's noninvasive and I'd had I've had lacy. Qualified through all the proper testing with him and his his crew over there and that I knew that he was an expert and then as he walked me through it, I said, well, I'd like to see far and close he goes let's blame them leave one alone. Do the other if we need to adjust the other down the road we can but then you won't have to wear readers glasser context that's for me turned out perfect I. Can See far and close in feels both is do both seem novel concept should have listened to closely and you tell me and I know getting rid of Bill Br Brian's wants some games here, division titles fine but that's what you're willing to accept. That's fine and I, know if he was gone the you'd say we got talent the next guy will get the most out of it. Well, that may be true as well, but I know this. Great talent. Can Still Overcome Average coaching at times. So let's not go overboard. Maybe we've over maybe we've gone overboard on some of the talent they have as well. One by one here's Bill O'Brien post game. Think we I think we we never quit. But so I think that's really good. I'd say we got a bunch of great guys. We just gotTA figure out how to win a game. You know we Got Down there, and we weren't able to get it in. The police just didn't work and You know. So we just have to we have to figure out. You know just gotTa. Keep working I mean there's really no way out of it other other than that. You have no choice. The only choices just keep working and keep trying to improve. And That's what we're all GONNA try to. Do. Those comments never come out of a great coach mouth they just won't. At Owen four now maybe at three and one or two and two, you got close in got a tip ball break and what he played hard. But Hey, we never quit. We hung in there. You're paid pro. That's what your job is every Sunday just like the other six days or five days or seven days a week other people in society sales, people, construction workers, waste management, all they go to work. And unfortunately, just a great guy. Doesn't keep them their job. All right they've just doesn't, and either just while we hung in there hanging in there at four gets coaches and players in sales people fired and construction workers I hung in there but I missed eighteen times I missed the wrong shingle on the roof and it leaked and I got fired that that happens it's not good enough just to hang in there groundhog day. That's one. So does that the debt I don't WanNa hear that from my coach I actually while I don't believe in air dirty laundry would like to hear you. Put some people on notice without naming them. All you gotta do is say it. In a roundabout way, they'd get the message period. What do they not they? We would have we said every week this year about Dan Quinn groundhog day same thing they get up then they lose the lead in the and they move on. Should be fired right. This team doesn't even really get up ever get down big and hang in there at the at least the Falcons have a great offense that can what at some point get them up by two or three touchdowns on a team and yeah, the defense sucks and in the offense gets a little skittish. Dan Quinn out. So I, mean we the way we talk about the falcons, is the exact same thing is the Texans just yet there never really up except for the little bit against the steelers pains me because you guys know that I've probably been on the bill O'Brien. You'd lasted a lot longer and everybody I've hung in lasted through lassie hung in there longer than most but it's not just the execution and the same stuff I. See every week and coming out of the locker room slow and getting down it's the. What I hear that we got great nobody gives a rat's ass in your post game press conference. If you've got guys will look at the in the off season doing charity work and all that Queen here about that. Fine. Great. We're not those three hours I. don't care what kind of great guy they are I want to. Win. Now here's a guy that I think is one of the top ten players in the league I think he's a unique talent I love the kid he's not above criticism and part of this I like there's a part of it I despise in his post game press conference. Today it is what it is real. Fine keep pushing forward know. That's it but for me personally, I'm not GonNa let it take my joy I'm GonNa continue to live life continue to work my ass off to come here every day and play football. So. Yeah. That's it is what it is. But at the end of Dave my joy, my spirit must smell. my energy they love of the game is still continue to be there so. That's Great I'd love. Animal fight your ass off I have no doubt that he does and that he got to keep coming in there and work and no doubt that he does. To tell me it is what it is at Oh and four to forty million dollars a year. That's not good enough. No I can't hear that from. That's too casual because what it was never like that for Marino. It's not like that for it wasn't like that for moon. It isn't what it is. What it is is it your responsibility and accountability is to go in there and grab a few guys by the nap of the neck and say thanks got changed and he was being perfect position to say, Oh, it is and four, but this is Acceptable and I gotta play better meaning him because he does and I don't want US joy and I'm glad that he's happy and joyful in life I would be too that salary and you're the king of the franchise and quite frankly king in this town one of them but you I'd be joyful to and go in there the smile on my face but they're also comes a point when that smiles got turn to a grind and a little bit of eight show your teeth man show your teeth because I think at times as much as I love him and his game little too casual for me and I don't like that it is what it is and. Not. Taking my my joy away part of your joy is make another guys around you better. And not accepting. Liberty guys. I could tell you some stories about Dan fouts. Would would frigging boggle your mind. About practice in what he went do. I'm not going to waste your time now, but I'm just telling you. At I've seen it and this kid is so good. But those opportunity will second let should take some of your joy away. You're all one four. This is your day job. Nobody's happy when they're getting, they're asking. So while I know he's going to work and I, know we without him there too and fourteen or three and thirteen. But I don't like I don't need to hear that because now here would what a guy who gets it when it comes to the hatred of losing and making sure his teammates no, it's unacceptable and he feels the same way that everybody should. In the organization after a loss mean this is terrible. It's I mean it's Depressing It sucks sucks. I don't know any other way to put it. like I said I don't know any other way than to work harder. I know that working less is not the answer. So I'm going to work even harder hints three times. Defensive Player of the year hints has been dominant Guy Even when his back tells him in his all the injuries tell him. I can't go fight through it hence why he's not going in. You know what? He's probably joyful in his life I, guarantee you. He didn't sleep well, last night I guarantee you just pissed woke up this morning and I guarantee there's going to be. They'll be some chatter because of him. Good chatter meaning guys. We can't take this anymore and almost to the point where he wants heads to roll. Yeah, and that's the way he accepts it because. It's great to push I. Hey, we always say that windshields better. The rear view mirror. Let's push it aside but you gotta suffer when you lose a little bit you do and then you get over and go back to work and you're right you gotta keep working hard. It's working harder. It's working smarter Jj Watt One, hundred percent correct and Bill O'Brien missed it completely and to Sean missed it fifty percent. On the did I mean, look back to the last twenty years Tom. How many times do we see Tom Brady y'all wide receivers or offense of Lyman because they made a mistake and it wasn't every single time. But there there's times when you got yells people. Weren't going right or you it was a trend where things were going wrong. He would finally get on someone's ass and if that play we talk about where if Tunsil slides down and he's not supposed to yell at learn tons I don't care that twenty, two, million dollar tackle these not above criticism either. The money and if it's the opposite if it's to Sean, not doing what he's supposed to do then tunsil turnaround and put on in his place got an chemists at hot. Yeah. Okay. I mean without embarrassing. Yes. See none of that from this team period and I don't even need the raw raw part I just need to make sure that I know you've got joy and you should have joy. But if all in four a ruin some of your joy the ninety care little more I think he does Stephen Got About thirty seconds Steve I'll get to you after the break what's going on Stephen. Good Morning Guys three points Watson. I would say individually, he probably would have waited sign that huge contract. He knew he was getting with this team and what this leadership was at the top secondly. This team won't sell out for this coach this coaches made it clear that he doesn't connect with his players, I hopkins and they're not going to sell out it's going to get worse and and third on this start. This is owners laugh I wanNA know Sean, do you think that there's any amount of watches that he'll take this year before he'll fire this guy I think no, okay. Got Some Stephen I appreciate it I I don't think it'll happen during the season I'm with you on that but I can tell you this and I don't subscribe to interim coach is very often if they go one and seven I, he's gotta go.

Hour 2: Jenkins vs Reid

"My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance, good. It's it's it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and j. u. l. dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. All right. If you're just joining us, we are discussing the situation that recently happened between Eric Reed and Malcolm Jenkins at the eagles panther's game. And essentially, Eric read called, Malcolm jink comes a sell out for hijacking and then selling read and Colin cabinets movement to the NFL for a hundred million dollars and max. I know you wanna say. Stephen a. actually your point about you feeling uncomfortable when someone who's not African American is discussing, this is actually well taken. I don't feel that way. Personally, I think social consciousness anyone can have it. But if you don't go through something personally, won't understand it the same way. So I actually appreciate that point. I want to say something about about what evergreens real beef is here. He thought the details of the deal were bad. And basically the idea was not just the players couldn't decide where the money was going to go. But the money itself, which wasn't quite one hundred million dollars was already money that was there and earmarked for other things. It was just being shifted over. It wasn't an additional investment by the owners and the players would also lose control about the way it was invested. So he thought on the details they were getting, they were getting it was like a shell game and they were getting ripped off and it was being co opted by the NFL. And so when he says, sells out, he means that literally. You're selling out and it's not even a good deal. I think Eric Reed has a point. No, he he, but here's the thing. Here's the thing max. Okay. Everyone can have an opinion about how the money was allocated where the money comes from. But for me, the bigger overall issue is the public display, their agreed head in the game because at the end of the day, what good does it do to have that type of confrontation with Malcolm jank Malcolm Jenkins at that point in time in regarding Colin cabinet him not being on a roster right now, because like I said earlier before the break people who are posers whole issue guaranteed you, they're sitting back, right, they're rubbing their hands. See, see here it is. These guys aren't even United on what they're both post be fighting for right now. You're saying that with me is my situation where agreed in this whole situation. You're both going. You're both fighting for calls, but you're doing it in different in different ways. It does no good to go. Out there and have a public display and say as a black man, it just hurts me to see Baroud black to black men going out there and having that type of public display when you're supposed to be fighting on the same team here he's supposed to be fighting for the same calls. Well, first of all, Daming absolutely right. But max let me take it a step further and you're not wrong. When you're saying max, I'm not talking to you as if you said something wrong, please. Please on misunderstand. Let let me be very, very clear. Let's get into the particulars. For example, the eighty nine million dollars. Did y'all know that part of the agreement is that. The owners will match whatever the players contribute up to a quarter of a million dollars annually to certain causes pertaining to the African American community. The kind of issues that Colin cabinet and others were talking about addressing, we know this if you don't know it, you know it. Now number two, the NFL Colin cabinet himself, Eric Reed himself, they will never protesting against the National Football League and its owners. They were protesting against society in terms of wanting to bring attention to Rachel oppression, Rachel inequality, and other things pertaining to disenfranchised communities throughout our nation. They were not complaining against the National Football League. Number three. When you talk about Malcolm Jenkins and the players coalition, they're saying their priority wasn't calling cabinet. Their priority would the issues we even have Josh Norman quoted on the record beefing, Eric read over a conference call written by an article in our very own. The undefeated where he was saying, Eric, let's just be real about what's going on here, whereas Colin cabinet to speak up for himself and, oh, by the way, this is big and it just one, man. We understand that what's happening to Colin cabinet is wrong, but this issue is bigoted him. And if we're about uplifting in helping our communities that takes precedent, which brings me back to Eric read, what does that reads? Real problem here max, you keep pointing to the numbers. You keep pointing to the deal, the intricacies of the deal itself. I'm willing to bet you check that. Eric re would not have a problem with this same exact deal that was reached. If a Colin cabinet had a job and be he was leading the front against the owners as opposed to Malcolm Jenkins, which means that the intricacies of the deal itself while may not while he may not like it. His real issue at the core of it all is. Is his lack of trust for individuals that he doesn't believe are lined with Colin cabinet's thinking that is fair. I understand where he is coming from, but in the end you this wasn't about Colin capital and it's not about you. And if you wanna make it about how Colin capping go, guess what? He took this knee and he's the one that spearheaded this movement understand in a roundabout way, and I'm being totally transparent here. It was really President Donald Trump because of Donald Trump doesn't show up at that rally in September, twenty second two thousand seventeen in Huntsville, Alabama and say, I'd fire all those SOB's. Jerry Jones would have never kneeled, and the players wouldn't have locked on unison as one entity and brand, and they would have never been at the negotiating table with those owners because Colin Cameron protests would have been exactly that. But Eric reading. For that. And then a process makes a public spectacle of himself in Barrasso himself and highlights a problem that exist within our community because every single time somebody black disagrees with somebody else who is black. It can't be a disagreement. It's got to elevate the character assassination with somebody's a sell up where I see points on both sides and I, it's my last one is I of your Lord Malcolm Jenkins because Malcolm Jacobs was class personified yesterday Damian when he said you couldn't pay me to address this subject. I am not going to insult. My brother is specially to y'all. I wish Eric read was that Kanda man on this particular Sunday, Stephen and Damian, I appreciate the point that it feels embarrassing when you have a movement, and this doesn't just happen with black. Stephen African American African Americans which make you feel better about it. This happens in all. Kinds of social movements. There are divisions and between the more radical and the less radical. And the reason I bring up the southern Christian leadership conference the SEC and the break with the NCC the student nonviolent coordinating committee, you know, back in the sixties is because that represents the same sort of thing. The more radical elements says your patient long game is not good enough. You know, as Martin Luther King said, Justice, postponed, his Justice denied, right, we need Justice now, and sometimes that division becomes public. And in this case it became public. So when I say Eric Reed has a point, I liked the way Malcolm Jenkins handled it very much what I mean is it they're, they're kind of illustrating the difference that is occurred in the civil rights movement and in most social movements between the less radical and the more radical. All right. I thought it was just an embarrassing situation. Like I said on this day, every greed is a smart brother. He's educated. He's a damn good football player, but he embarrassed himself on this Sunday afternoon. He's better than that, and it's a damn shame that he regrets to that point. You really is. Here's the positive all of their hearts are in the right place, right? Trying they're coming. Yes. My name is Lauren. I'm thirty three. I didn't want my identity to be the smoking mom. My first experience with jewel. I do remember being like distance, good. It's it's it's like a cigarette, but not. I don't miss smoking at all. Like I can officially say it grosses me out jewel is the tobacco alternative that delivers nicotine satisfaction without cigarette Asher lingering odor make the switch and j. u. l. dot com. Slash sports warning. This product contains nicotine. Nicotine is an addictive chemical. With your sports center right now, I'm troubled scales bears fans for probably hoping their next level defense would at least slow down to pats, but this should have known better New England put up thirty eight plus for the fourth straight game. But it was the office for the bears around up holding their own was big up. The highlight here in the first quarter, Mitchell Trubisky from the gun. Got a whole lot of pressure in spaces. Go scramble around quite a bit. We've got to tell us race in tracking him, but those wondering seventy two yards. He ended up running in told him to get eight regardless six goes up on the board Gago go take civilian. Now later on in the second quarter, Cordeiro Patterson off the kickoff makes move his the right side and that brother is known a ninety five yard kickoff, return to the crib with a high five to boot brings the patriots within three. Now, third and go for the pats. James whiten flat whole lot of points scored in this one that would six more for James Mitchell Trubisky not-i'm left. Try to make something happen in this. Bad boy up sent into overtime. Potentially. Kevin white comes down to get stopped short tiles Brady chest was tight after all this. Hold your breath. I saw him jump up and catch it, and I couldn't obviously have angle on the goal line, but by getting close to the end zone and they were pushing them, we're pushing sure what probably half yard or yard pretty close. So if I hold out. Him out. Shutouts let's first take patriots escape with the win over the bears for patriot Damien. Woody still with us. Stephen am going to start with you on this one. Were they lucky or were they good New England? I'm going to say good because you know special teams as a part of a football team. And obviously they had two touchdowns off a special teams that run that you know, that punt return by Patterson kickoff return about that. It's in and obviously the block point that was manufactured itself into a touchdown, would hot tower block in the plot. So I definitely going to give credit with credit is, do I will tell you that the patriots do have some concerns did have eighty one yards rushing. Now, obviously a lot of it was the patriots defense land back and what have you. So we get all of that puts still an all eighty one yards eighty one yards. And you can't have a quarterback running that affectively against you. So I think that's something that New England is going to look at. But at the end of the day, Tom Brady got three touchdowns just wondering sections and two hundred seventy seven yards. When you look at. What is the Josh Gordon had four receptions for one hundred yards and I'm gonna pay attention to that because obviously you're talking about an adult men along with gronkowski ultimately, being back when he gets back in what have you got one of them situations where Josh Gordon is out there and he's able to give you something on top of what you know, adamant and gronkowski we'll give you still with Chris HOGAN out there too, had about six receptions for sixty three yards. I'm going to look at the brokerage and say, you know what? They can ball did a fourth rank offense in the National Football League. They still have Tom Brady and Josh mcdaniels. So I'm gonna look at them and I'm going to say, hey, you know what? They're damn good team and they on par to obviously try to defend their AFC crown the patriots or good, obviously. Good. What you said about special teams. Stephen a. I actually agree with when you see someone excelling on special teams at team, that feels a little lucky. Well, it's not for that that little weird part of the game they lost. That's one of the three phases of the game. You know, you gotta be sound in the kicking game. The patriots are always. Sound in every phase of the game, even they bend but don't break defense has worked for them to the tune of Super Bowls in recent years, but luck as branch Rickey the guy who help Jackie Robinson break the color line and invented the farm system in baseball luck is the residue of design. And boy, it seems the patriots get lucky a lot, and that's because they have the greatest coach of all time and Bill Belichick. And by the way I gotta give it up a quarterback who is still great and Tom Brady and is therefore able to lead not just because of his veteran presence. But with his play on the field, he can still command the respect of teammates which why go grab a guy like Josh Gordon, who's not working out in Cleveland, look how he's working out in New England. The least penalized team is in football right now, forget about the giants because they stink of all the decent teams, the patriots, their second least penalized the giants, but least penalized among all serious NFL teams right now, like real NFL team. And by the way you know, known roughing, the passer penalty is like roughing, the passer, we all decried. I hate it. It's. Ruining the game. Look it out Brady waltzes into the end zone because he's new stupid. Roughing. The passer penalties penalized for roughing, the passer, the patriots because whatever the rules are, however ridiculous Bill Belichick gets them, okay. He stills the discipline in the team and they don't make those stupid penalties. This is good. Even the luck is. Good luck is the residue of design this Bill Belichick's design. Yeah, I wouldn't classify anything with the pages have to do with luck. I mean, you're talking about team on on a Sunday where the pages constantly preached don't beat yourself. That's the easiest way to win football games in the National Football League. You don't be a team. They had three turnovers, all things pages. Turn a bowl of that many time, three turnovers, but still your resources will no to get to scores out of your special teams. Josh Gordon's come round no groped by the way. So this is a patriots team that they know how to use utilize all fifty three guys on the roster. Also sonum assail goes down with a knee injury, so you just continue to see pieces go down, but the patriots somehow some way. And it starts with coach Belichick being able to utilize the guys that he has a roster and puts them in position to win games on the block. Put you know, he put Dante hot towel guy who wasn't in that situation, but he saw something there with the special teams unit. Let me put Dante Hightower in there and what did he do goes out blocked the punt. They turned it into a special teams touchdown. So when I look at the world look when as far as the patriots, I don't look at it that way. I look at coaches that knows how to put their players at position and it's like they waxed the dolphin Stephen at a time where the dolphins were good, then they barely beat KC and it's at home, and it's only by three they didn't cover and all that. But okay, they still got the win. It was them. Then they go on the road and they beat the bears. Well, they struggled the last week defensively. There's always an excuse for every team every weekend where you could say, well, the book, meanwhile, you don't have to make excuses for the patriots. They're the ones that constantly win those gains. It's been happening for fifteen years. It's happening against this season that ain't look while we're on the subject of this. Let's keep in mind that Khalil Mack wasn't one hundred percent, but they neutralize them. Let's keep in mind that to Rico and this brother can play and he had a big game yesterday. I'm a fan of his as well. It was nice to see a Kevin white signing, even though most of it came on that fifty four yard hail, Mary pass that he caught. You only had to recess. On the day. But looking at Chicago right now, Trubisky is in great, but he's better than I thought he would be again, he's not great yet. He certainly wasn't good enough to beat New England. But in the end, you gotta look at it from the perspective that he's getting better the defense, even though they're not the monsters of the midway that we thought they would be somehow someway you got to believe in them to some degree. I'm going to give the patriots credit. What creditors do also because of who they beat. I don't think Chicago is a deplorable team. I think they've got some weapons that they've got a tremendous upside and and I like him. He's just that the patriots were better. Hey, trays and chargers, both five and two only the chiefs with a better record wash. So sharpie said easily beating the chiefs week. One don't forget that after the Jags are the two zero. The season, they have lost four of five in bench. Blake Bortles on Sunday Jalen Ramsey going on with fifteen. Yossi how it isn't here. We've I would each other. We've I've towards the coaches, Chelsea at is no secret. How what's going on here right now they nobody gonna say, 'cause no, we can't, but they know secret what's going on in ain't it ain't right right now. So what it is. Stephen a. it is what it is. What do you think about all that? Well, listen, I get. We're jailer Ramsey's coming from from this perspective. He's basically saying it's not about us. Now. Defense might be arguing with one another because obviously, you know, the locker room had to be closed off from reporters because we could see players and collapsed Campbell restraining one player from going after another under the defensive side of the ball because the belief is that guys are not doing their job because they're trying to overcompensate they're trying to do too much. But I think this notion that we attributed to, you know, the shine and and trying to be popular because they were known as an elite defense. That's not what's going on here. Here's what's going on. They know their quarterback stinks. They know that their offense without Lennon for net stinks. And as a result, they're trying to win games and they believe that, you know, just defending and stopping opponent. If not enough, they've gotta make plays and literally score. For them to win because they have no faith on the offensive side of the ball. Now I'm Blake. Bortles case. Keep in mind that ever a lot of people feel you should be looking at Tom Coughlin because Tom coffins executive VP for the Jacksonville, Jaguars signed Blake borders to a three year extension at fifty four million dollars in the off season in February because he looked good last year, twenty one touchdowns thirteen interceptions you know, had a decent season completed over sixty percent of his passes for the first time in his career. So Tom Coughlin got caught up in that source. Plus they wanted to trip knit cap hit from nineteen million, which would have been to ten million once they made the new deal to extend him holding his right through twenty twenty. He'll be the cheapest one of the cheapest quarterbacks in the NFL next season, and we get all of that. But if you the Jacksonville, Jaguars defense, you got a problem with everything in the organization because you like damn cheapness. We went to the AFC championship game last year. We're an elite defense and you bring us back this garbage. We can't do anything with this guy quarterback. We can't do anything. With this offense. So what are we going to do? We're going to beat with not going to be risk averse. We're going to go after it. We're going to take chances. We're gonna try to make things happen because that's the only shot we have of winning as a result guys might not do their jobs from time to time because they've been trying to do somebody else's job on top of their job. They make mistakes and they end up bickering with one another. But I assure you when they come down and they huddle in somebody's home or the next morning or whatever, and they really get down to the crux of what is going on with this team is gonna come down to this. I quarterback stinks. We got no shot at winning with ham and they know it and they still brought us behind that. That's our problem. We got a band together and hold off our frustration in that regard. But the real problem doesn't allow with us as a defense in laws with that damn, Blake Bortles and we just can't say it. That to me is what I'm getting from them. Lakers also here with us. Victor, what are your thoughts on this. I think he's absolutely right. I think I think Jalen Ramsey understands and that team understands that offense. They can't do anything. They're struggling with the loss of Leonard fournette struggling with blade borders inconsistencies. Hence why he got benched yesterday. They're struggling with that. And as a defense, he's looking around like, what are we supposed to do? We can only Ben but so much before we break. We only understand what we can do. And obviously the defense they'd been lands of points off is not obviously all on the offense, but it's hard to play that way when your back's against the wall and your your, your defense is expected to show up such a major way. So I agree. I mean, Jalen Ramsey understand but I don't know. I can't speak to what's going on in that locker room as far as that defense and guys being held back. We're doing radio understands that our quarterback stinks for life, a better work quarterback is not the type of quarterback that we need on this team to win ballgames and it's costing us right now. Here's the problem though for Jalen Ramsey. When you start talking and talking big to start the season and my hat's off to your Jalen Ramsey you going up against Odal Beckham junior, you're talking, you got torched, but people respect. I don't care if you're playing zone or man to man. There will be times where you will get blamed. The receiver makes a big play and you were going right at the baddest dudes in the game, and you had confidence not only in yourself putting your teammates on defense problem is now you've got to keep talking. You gotta keep talking when the going gets rough and the going got rough, and I'm going to get the Blake Bortles in a second and what he's really saying about that. Here's the bottom line. The Jags give up thirty to Kansas City. Okay. No big deal, right? Because Kansas City's defense showed out think. Then they gave up forty to the Cowboys forty to the Cowboys. And then you just gave up twenty two, the Texan, but forty to the Cowboys. I don't want it. Well, if we had four net, you can control the run that goes hand in hand with the defensive were demoralized by the quarterback excuses, excuse, you, forty to the Cowboys. Defense is not showing up and by the way, and this was in the ring or by the way, things like red zone defense even sacks. But especially takeaways, those are a lot of variants from year to year. In other words, some of that's luck and the Jags kind of as in addition to having a good defense locked up a little bit. Yes. Last year that regress to the mean, so they're now they're not getting that on defense. So is lake Bortles good enough? No, especially in this day and age. The numbers Blake Bortles puts up is just doesn't cut it. He shouldn't be a starting quarterback for the Jags, but the defense ain't doing their job right now, but the accidents go hand in hand. Those things like, you know, especially when the offense isn't doing well Jalen Ramsey and that defense like, man, we, what are we doing here as an effect on your morale, just like on the opposite. On the defense letting points offense. If you like, man, we do, but so much, but defense is mad at, you know, they're not helping us out in this regard max. Let me drop this on you to close this segment and just and just and just sleep on this. Just just for the commercial break. The Dallas Cowboys dropped forty on Jacksonville, fair enough. No excuses. Bottom line is you the Jacksonville, Jaguars you're a big time defense. You can't wilt beneath the storm because you're frustrated with your offense because elite defense is don't do that. I understand that point max, I'm closer segment by saying this. They may have given up forty the Dallas Cowboys. Do you know that the Jacksonville Jaguars defense has scored twenty eight points for the month of October. Twenty eight points for the month of October total. The very, there's a reason to be depressed. Sounds like Dom would be. Would be for net though, and obviously, TJ Yeltsin's also banged up and Carlos Hyde. They brought in. He hasn't played yet and they lost marquees league for the season as well. So the offense, they need that age. The way the offense is. There's almost no such thing as a great defense, you better have an office. Let's stay in the division the Texans, though, going in the other direction, they became the team in the Super Bowl era to win four straight games after an owned three start, here's Texans head coach, Bill O'Brien on how hard it is to win in the NFL. The how hard it is to win an NFL football game. I mean, it is the most difficult thing to do. I think in professional sports to go out and win an NFL football game their hard-fought. There's great players on on both sides of the ball and on special teams. There's these winds no matter how you win this team. This team fights. This team practices hard. They care about each other. I mean, really like somebody asked me the question last week, you know, I just don't. I get these questions here and I'm going, what does that mean? We didn't play well, and we still one. Okay. Whatever you decide is playing. Well, it's fine with me, but we want and we've won four in a row and now the key is can we keep it going? That's going to be the case. Ryan opening up with a little Brandt their right to go off like that max. Absolutely not. That's absurd. Nothing against Bill O'Brien, personally, but coach, there are as many losses as wins in the league every single year for the history of the game, there must necessarily be as money as many wins as losses. Is it hard to win? Yeah, coach, but some coaches are better at it than others period. Like, you know, if you value as a coach, you bring that you're judged against your peers. The thirty one other head coaches in the league. Some of them are better winning than others. There are fifty percent of the games worth of wins to go around and you get fewer of them than most guys. It's hard for everyone, but they're better at it. Then you period. If you were an NBA coach, you know what you would think the hardest thing in the world that professional sports is to win an NBA game because they're the exact same number of wins to go around his losses. And if you. Did in the NBA what you do in the NFL you'd have fewer of them. Then others, Bill O'Brien has not shown inability ability as a head coach to make a team better than the sum of their parts coach. I'm not saying it's easy coach. I'm not saying you're not one of the best thirty two coaches in the world you very well may be, but by the standards which are very high, we understand of NFL coaches. There are the, they're the bell curve over here on the far right end there the really good ones. Then they're the bunch of guys in the middle, and then there are ones that are not so good and right now, the category that you fall into or the not so good ones that's the way it is. You're being judged at the highest standards in the world, and you're failing to meet those standards. You know what you're right, and it's not a debatable item because we don't disagree, but I'm just gonna ticky late it from a different perspective. Billow Brian. I've always been a fan of him from the standpoint that he's no nonsense. He's can't. He comes across very candidate. He was the one that wants got nose to nose and challenge Tom Brady and had to be restrained. He wasn't taking any crap from Tom Brady on the sidelines during one game, and I and I really respect that. But the flip side to it is that when I listened to Bill O'Brien talk yesterday, I looked to Bill O'Brien as an individual that didn't want to be held to the standards that ultimately got him the job. He actually did a damn good job at Penn State is a head coach. He actually did a damn good job as coordinated in New England. The reality is, is that as a head coach, his record is thirty five and thirty six with the Houston, Texas. He's never won double digit games. He had a four and twelve losing season last year. The best he's ever been able to do as a nine, seven record back to back to back years and that's about it. Now, to me, there's nothing great about. That obvious the, you haven't even want fifty percent of the games that you have coached, and we understand that. But my point is that Bill Bill Parcells once said, you are what your record says you are, and it's like, Bill O'Brien doesn't want us to acknowledge that you know what you all what your record says you are. And in the end, he's going to have to make amends for that. He's going to have to deal with that reality because the bottom line is, is that you look at him and he's supposed to be this quarterback guru and everything else. And we've watched Shawn Watson sometimes we all believe in and what it comes down to is that regardless of what we want to slice it in Houston is a respectable team in JJ. Watt should win defensive player of the year ward. If he keeps playing the way to these playing. The reality is that you look at Bill O'Brien and you said I expected better. It's not that he's awful, but you did expect better from what from him then what you ever seed since he has been head coach at Houston. Texans Bill O'Brien is absolutely correct. It is very, very difficult to plan. Sleep you think about it? Right. You game plan all week long for the chance that the team is going to run the same place that you saw on film the weeks prior and they can come out and change everything that you've seen. And now you have to midstream adjust and figure out how you're going to beat this team. You have to battle injuries. You have to battle quarterback play. You have to manage your defense. It is very difficult to win in this league. So whether Bill O'Brien's record indicates who he is or how he is or what type of coach he is individually, what he's saying isn't false. It is hard to win in this league two thousand eleven. When we won the Super Bowl, we lost six straight games. And then we went on a tear and whatever the case may be. But those six games, we were looking around scratching our heads like, how are we gonna get? How are we going to right this ship? How are we going to figure this out? And Bill O'Brien is absolutely correct. It is very, very difficult to win in this league. I mean, asked the giants this year, obviously as certain teams around the league that don't have winning records or teams that have lost gains by margin. So smart field goal or things like that. It's. Hard to win in this league. Things have to go right for you throughout the course of a football game in order for you to win. So Bill O'Brien, what he's saying is absolutely correct. It is difficult to win game difficult for some than others. Exactly. Obviously, the New England Patriots aren't anomaly they, they make it look so easy that Bill Bryant's comments almost look negated at this point. Technology truth brought to you by Geico.

Why are you talking about paper clips shoulder, shrug, high, five wizard hat what gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. We're on the staple center Saturday night for the game, but for the big fight in the fourth quarter, the NBA suspending Brin Ingram, poor games Rajon Rondo three and Chris, Paul, Two games all without tastes Stephen a Smith. How about this fight for the NBA. On its face. It's not that bad. There was no jumping into the stands or anything like that. So we understand it wasn't. It wasn't bad in that regard. When you talk about spitting, that definitely is a bad look. It's a far worse look to Rajon Rondo again, a player that I like and for the most part could be on my team any day, but you just don't do what he did. It cross the line. Having said, all of that, I'm going to piggyback max and Molly off of the discussion that we were having in regards to ever agree and Malcolm Jenkins now, obviously, this is basketball. This is not the National Football League. There was no kneeling at NBA games or what have you contractually. It is always been in their contract that they must stand for the national anthem. So they would lock arms with one another and assisted in bringing attention to the kind of issues that Colin cabinet wanted us all to address and we understand that. But the flip side. To it is that there's a constituency out there who have it may be four, whether it's President Trump or anybody else that our opponents opponents of the protest, opponents of bringing attention to such things. And when you are conducting yourself in a fashion that allows folks to lean back and say, look at how they're acting, it defeats the purpose, maybe not for the NBA maybe not as it pertains to ratings and popularity, but certainly as it pertains to how we're looked upon as athletes and dare I say is black men, and I think that's something that we have to be cognizant of as often as we can get Brandon Ingram shoving, James harden in the back and God's about to get in a scuffle is one thing. But when the spitting in the face takes place, that's not a good look when the. Person that receives that happens to be the president of the players association fighting on behalf of the very players like Rondo who ended up spitting in his face. That's not a good look and ultimately has a detrimental effect on us. I want to pick up on where you left off right there. Stephen actual, in fact, the the NBA has been seen when David Stern took over as a quote, unquote black league, and there were concerns about how that would play in white America. And when I say white America or middle America, in fact, we saw in this last national election, the white people voted as a monolith as kind of a lockstep voting blocks. There is one and a white America that is, and that's a huge economic engine and the NBA did not want that the to exclude that market. And and so David Stern realizes he needed to change the perception of the negative stereotypes associated with a quote, unquote black leagues. So for example, there was a dress code in the NBA that was strictly enforced and can. Serie participation in the national anthem and all those things. So I understand what you mean when you say the perception of the league guys spitting on each other, a Malay, all those kind of things. I would say this about the fight. If this is an isolated incident, it's okay if anything can even spike interest temporarily so long as this is not a pattern of violence on the court, and I will also say this, and this is interesting because it cuts the other way. You don't want to be the NHL of quote unquote, very white league, right? Like you don't wanna be that where you may not even be ojected for fighting. There's no automatic objection for fighting in the NHL. It's part of the culture of the league. And on the one hand, well, they enforce their own unwritten rules and all this stuff. On the other hand, it's never really caught on to become truly the fourth with jitters major American team sport. And I believe partly that's because of the violence. It appeals to as you put it, Stephen, a, the very kind of core constituency, the hard fans, but alienates others. And I don't think the NBA. A wants that racial issues aside. I think the NBA does not want to be seen as a league out of control. I don't think they are. I think this is an isolated incident. It's okay, but clearly you don't wanna pattern of violence on the court, and this wasn't the ideal ninety there with all the is on LeBron and his home opener Staples Center. So they couldn't be happy with the timing. Tatra mountains broke the NFL record for most touchdowns in his first eight games with twenty two in the twos, forty five, ten beatdown of the Bengals for the first time since two thousand thirteen. The chiefs scored forty or more points in back to back games max calendar in this chiefs offense take up all the way to the Super Bowl and hotlanta could. I'm not picking them to do it. But the fact is there's no stopping this offense, but I wanna remind everybody the Super Bowl last year. There was no stopping either offense until one of the teams made a single defensive play. Basically that was the no punt Super Bowl. And the first time a team made a defensive play the eagles. They won the game, and I asked you in the AFC who is more likely. To make that defensive play between the chargers and the chiefs. The chargers are more likely, especially when they get back. I will also remind you chiefs for six in one chargers are five and two, and they played each other game one. And the chargers dropped a million passes that is unlikely to repeat itself. Those normally sure handed receivers. I still like the chargers over the chiefs to get out of the AFC. I got the chiefs going to the Super Bowl. I'm there. I just think their offenses to explosive. They have too many weapons, and everybody's caught up Patchett Mahomes tremendous and has a rifle open arm. And what have you. I'm I'm quarterback Kareem hunt and tyreek hill. I think both of these guys are electrifying, you know what they do after catches. There's something special to behold and I am and what I'm seeing from opponents going up against the Kansas City Chiefs. I'm seeing folks scared of their offense. They're literally frightened when they're out there on the football field. They're not just beating people. They're beating them down and did demoralizing them. They're taking their heart. They're taking the heart of opposing defenses. You could just see the Cincinnati Bengals last night was the latest example. I think that's the first time in all my years, watching the Marvin Lewis team, I actually felt sorry for him. I wanna know from Stephen a. at some point this week, at some point this week, I want you to put in. Order because they have four special players in crude include Travis Kelsey, put in order the most special between Mahomes hill hunt and Kelsey. I'm very curious to know the answer there at leaving the main hill hill Mahomes hill McCaw Mahomes. And then obviously one hundred Kelsey weaken debate that non picking the patriots, the dull back again. Interesting. All right, that'll do for us here on I take. We'll see you same time tomorrow. Now it's time for a Hannah storm and Jay Harris for centers. Next, have a good day guys. Thanks much villes into the podcast. Could I take weekdays, ten AM eastern on ESPN.

We're opening today's show. With a brand new segment of the rip before the intro really. Why not, why not? We have no laws here. No rules know free wild. In my poem that I'm GonNa, read you kind of about that first segment. RB. Poetry Circle. So I've decided that every week Chris and I will each write a poem. Sometimes. Funny. Sometimes serious our sweater today for our poetry he did. I'm wearing sunglasses indoors much like a heroin addicted poet might. Sure. We're going to share these poems with each other and everyone listening. And give feedback to one another and it's going to be great. You'll love it and everyone at home is going to snap along you better love because it's happening now. And I'm going to start. After you good sir. Money in the bank. Blood upon my shank. Try a pirate Lord like me and I'll make you walk the plank. A Hoy me made. Let's storm the beach. Some British turds there a lesson we will teach. A pirate's life for me. I'm a master of the sea. Bathing in the booty. Full of rum and Hennessy. That was it. That was it Chris your thoughts. I. I was moved. Is that what be on people do they snap at each other? You cannot happen to British half to know at this point in your life that you snap after poetry I refuse to believe that you. Know. It's always the snaps I thought snaps was like a sorority thing. It definitely is. I promise you it. You allowed to I don't know that it's not. You haven't spent enough time that poetry slams dude I be like I've had in college time around sorority girls and not nearly enough time around poetry slams. My only familiarity with poetry slams actually comes from a very old Mike Myers movie titled. I married. So I married an axe murderer. Is the name of the movie. Sure. I've never late eighties early nineties. I can't remember it's outrageous but in it Mike Myers is a slam poet. Okay and he goes and performs sir. And they didn't have any snapping really know snapping well, my song goes yes napping. No. Okay understandable. My experience man slim very slim. You know except that. My experience was slam poetry comes. From a movie I'm done. But I believe it's twenty one jump street is. Cynthia. Sin Young Okay Okay She's Dodd for our sin the. And snap at the end of that one. Well, they have had like they hesitantly snap. Snap knowledge from twenty, one, jump I believe. Also. That awkward moment feature snaps at poetry don't always is I believe tight. Jordan, and miles teller all in the same movie were. Yeah. It's crazy. It's crazy. Didn't like I love it it's one of my favorite movies hilarious and like cycle ROM com. Pretty Cute.

Thank you good for you. I'm scared of that particular cast in that film. That cast in fact that I haven't heard of it in those three people star in it means it cannot be good but probably isn't it's kind of trash. So just to clarify, were you putting yourself in the boots of the pirate like was I writing the poem as a pirate or was it to represent pirates? Was it to rep was the deep because I was thinking it was the deeper meaning of your free spirited nature wanting to sail the seas of freedom and released the chains that have held you down in society is about the ocean of life? Yeah. You know that's what I saw coming a master of that. Staying. Not Sober coming. That's what it was about becoming the captain of your ship. Yeah. Really taking the helm. Of Your own vessel. Yeah. You know and just sailing to the horizon of destiny. Just, bathing in Budi. Lots of booty everywhere. Yeah. All right to your poem. Shirt sure sure a little more of a serious. No NO RHYME SCHEME to mind I'm going to be honest. It's more just from the heart kind of reform free form free form poetry. Absolutely. Okay. That's that's Alli. Bowl the strategy cotton. showed or a ballad potentially. Is What this? Okay. Okay. Here we go. See what you got. I'm going to click. Yeah clear the throat just so we're all GONNA. Drop, down like one octave for seriousness. You know that's how poets do it. Is it Now I don't know. Football. The four religion of America sending millions flocking to their local cathedral. Sunday. After Sunday, expanding their sweat tears and vocal cords all in support of their football family. For most a life of cyclical disappointment on varied levels as it may be for at the end of the year only one can raise the holiest of holy objects. But in that predicament lies the magic making you believe, and that's what you did. You were delight that escaped the black hole you came into my city with nothing but a wide smile and work effort, and you left with more than just an onfield. Superman for fucks you brought us from the deepest valleys to the highest peaks and everywhere in between. But hell, I wouldn't have it any other way for there in lies the magic. Sunday after Sunday, you filled our living rooms with the joys of broken tackles downfield bombs, dabs dance moves grinning from ear to ear arms wide out like an airplane in every time. It looked like you damn near might just fly. You never stopped loving on or off the field you genuinely cared you made a difference you left an impact, you created your own destiny. What you did for my city I cannot thank you enough. Memories will laugh through the blue and silver seats of eight hundred Mint Street for all of eternity, the echoes of MVP chance and the caucus explosions of eighty thousand souls cheering just for you caucus and I am sorry, I am sorry you never got the proper goodbye. Deserved I am sorry. So many turned their backs on you after you gave your mind body and soul to them unconditionally. This I'm sorry never got the credit you deserve and somehow found somewhat and people somehow found a way to question you one way or another. He's GonNa cry you inspire me to be me every day. You want stated prove it or lose it, and I strive to live by that mantra Jesus continued to do you continue to proving every continue proving every single person wrong that doubts wrong. This is an open letter. Cameron Jerrell Newton, this is my closure. Thank you. Use this chapter to solidify that you are all time. And finally, Goodbye. What next week I'm going to have to have you look up the definition of a poem that was an open letter to Cam. Newton, is my free form poetry to form closure I. thought it was about me. No you didn't, and then I was like, wait a minute. This is about Cam Newton. Yes. So yesterday Ross in the car. And Times. I Talk I'm not even going to review your poem just want to give the basis on why this was my poem of choice for today. Ross that I need closure, I need to move home needs an explanation I was preaching to the wrong choir, and at this point I needed something to out me being the wrong choir hypocrisy can't let. CAMCO. Correct. He's not he's a Carolina Panthers Fan Okay Huge Cam Newton obviously the head quarterback of the New England patriots now also has Kovic so not really but but calls yesterday in the car was back to talking about Cam and I was like Kohl's enough. No one cares she did say that I was like. Calls. Earlier this week. The Texans. Made a decision to essentially make. What was trading away the best best receiver in the NFL in my opinion and arguably in the top three. For, a washed old running back named David Johnson in a bag of potato chips I think we gave away some pick somehow in that one to. The the the man that made that happen. Is. No. Longer part of the Texans Organization we'll discuss later. Essentially making the loss of Deandre Hopkins one of my favorite players in history the arguably the franchise player for the Texans outside of Deshaun. Watson who what? What? You got it the Andrei Hopkins. Yes. The Shawn Watson. And it like. You got so many years ago a super bowl run all these things with Cam. We never got any of that. We barely got a year with a quarterback correct and so Ross in the car after I brought up camper probably the seventieth time in the last month said that enough was enough and I needed to move on so. Instead, of a poem, I realized that my free form poetry open letter form was the way that I needed closure. I. Thank you, gang. For listening. Next. You bring them up. I'm just going to start going on the list of of athletes that Houston has burned the end of their relationship with. Andre Johnson Akeem Elijah one I'll just start now. Now, they've fortunately repaired a lot of these relationships over the years, but now it is not uncommon to have your Your Franchise Athlete unceremoniously look at Tom Brady. I think for Tom Brady man. The Tampa. Bay buccaneers now he he is the New England patriots franchise to so many people and it's just that sports sports. Sports. But I hope you got your closure closure. I feel good now good and that was the first ever our poetry circle. We hope you enjoyed it. Featured one home and one open letter to. Cam. Newton and Yeah. Let us know your feedback on social media. I think Roz being too strict on what a poem actually is. That's for the listener to decide Ross I rode. Let us know I wrote it in the shape of a football. It's a concrete poem. You just can't see it. That could shapes don't translate into audio form. For the POD. Sorry about it. Next time I need I, need books and manuals on how you want my poem fair enough.

I was on three avoided that speech an jumping straight to the speech for all of you who are own for Because I care that much about you. So here we go. So you started fantasy football on for. A four month and zero wins, four weeks and not a single solitary victory. Disappointing no longer describes your season. This is a disaster. You look like a fool. Everyone, is laughing at you. What is it like you and one other guy that haven't won a game yet your pathetic bottom feeder, a sea urchin stuck to a boulder at the bottom of the ocean and that boulders your roster. Look we are past hearing you scream I'm fifth in point scored dude nobody cares your season is legitimately over if you don't start winning hard and fast. It's time to shake things up at the very least time to wake up goddamn players and remind them who they work for trade. You're only good asset for two mediocre ones and then way overpaid for the only available wide receiver and running back projected to score over ten points this week off of the waiver wire those are your only moves. Stir the pot. Smelling salts before kickoff, Thursday, Sunday and Monday, and strap in because if you lose this week. If you lose this week, it's actually over and you're only purpose henceforth will be to serve as an agent of chaos shitting random trade proposals out to every League member daily. And burning it all down. Oh enforced pathetic truly disgusting and you make everyone sick but is it over? Arguably No. Owen five is over O. and four is desperate. So, act, with desperation this week. You pathetic. Dork. Because this is your last chance. Next segment. Goodbye to Bill O'Brien, we're sports heavy at the top today calls. Have you noticed? I have a bit but this is important. It's a big day for me huge day for all Houston. Texans fans really sports fans if you enjoy seeing a good product on the field Amen. Amen to that brother because his any of you who know paid attention to sports or my general social media commentary where the Houston Texans finally fired President head coach general manager dictator demi-god. Bill O'Brien after falling to own four on the season like everyone the prior fantasy football segment addressed. Sad. Yeah. Ross woke up this morning his little band that keeps track of his energy and recovery in everything. Today he checked it and it was like you're crushing it dude what happened yesterday it was so confused because Ross is his mental, his physical vitals everything about his life. It's like a thousand pound weight lifted off his shoulder. He's glowing I don't know if your way if you're on youtube dot com right now, you can maybe see Russel and but he might be too bright. That's why he's got the shades on. He's got to contain you. He's like, what's the site contain me cyclops? Yeah. He signed a take these off laser beams shoot out of my fucking is that's how excited I am this guy's gone not a sad day for Texans. Fans at all as Oh, my God. Thank you finally count. McNair. So we had Robert McNair prior right his son took over when he passed away rest in peace and so far all he's done is give the but Chin doofus Bill O'Brien more power but finally he makes a move. Mailman Gary. His Texans Hat on today. That's how huge this is for. Houston he was stoked. Didn't even know mailman Gary was a Texas guy. He might not Houston guy might not have been until today he's finally like coming out of hibernation. It's it's been. It's been an amazing forty eight hours. The second bill O'Brien was fired Carlos Correa went yard lead over the as the Astros are not to over the as one win away from the ACS bill. O'Brien. Has Been an absolute mediocre Shite his entire career in Houston entitled rude to the press had generally shitty disposition toward all media gloated over division wins in a trash division maintained that. Nine and seven was the bar his entire stay before trading away the best receiver in football and being fired for an own four start when he literally had control of every asset of the franchise including calling by the end just absurd. It feels like a fucking dark cloud is lifted off of the city. Perhaps a sports curse been broken. Perhaps, this is what we needed to reverse the Astros two thousand. Seventeen trash cans, scandal Chris, your thoughts I'm just stoked for you. If I'm being completely on for me as somebody that you can really terrible organizations over and over again and somebody that scene bad a really good players go to waste their entire career because they're with terrible organizations and as somebody that works with you everyday and has to basically vicariously live through the struggles of Houston sports too I'm stoked. For you I'm excited to see the future of the Houston Texans they're in the AFC, my panthers in the NFC. So I don't really care if there I mean the only time we would ever meet competitively and knock each other out the super bowl which would be stoked about that. That's not gonNA happen anytime soon regardless the future is now for both of our programs, we begin a new we can. Grind togetherness flat. Circle. This is all happening at the same time. Simultaneously is everything else amen brother but I mean I'm just stoked for Houston as well as the Astros won yesterday. If they win, it will be funniest. Most Ironic. Put it. Enjoyable moment in I. Don't really care about baseball. So in the history of me watching baseball I would highly enjoy that just of how much they've taken this year and like they're not supposed to be here correct Ross, they weren't as. They. Kinda. Had A rough regular season having easy. No. Now, they're just beating the shit out everybody in the playoffs. They haven't lost a game to Larry's the world is furious echo mode they gotta Travis Scott View. Bob's Y-. You know. Yeah. I remember I used to see Travis Scott courtside at rockets games. That's tight man. But now that he's done like every collab- possible including McDonald's I'm like. I don't know maybe it's just not as tight McDonald's is like making this a thing. Now you say that they just released another one with like j Galvin or something like that. Don't care. It's big cared flurry and fries do not give. The Travis Scott meal was never will don't care. He didn't know say Care Travis Scott. CACTUS sent me give a shit but. Goodbye. To Bill O'Brien. In the meantime, we have like our old defensive coordinator, Romeo Canal. At the helm I'm not sure who's calling plays the season as watch it doesn't matter world for who gives a fuck. Brand is gone and the world wants Brett Bellamy. Belania Bill Bellamy is it Brett Br Brahimi Craig I believe it's Bellamy. That you're talking about the chiefs I think it's Eric. You're talking about the chiefs. Offense coordinator I, believe Eric. Be Enemy be in an IBM. Eric Yeah whatever white guy named Brett. Tom. Tim. Eric. Sean he's not Bellamy. He's black. You're talking about the chiefs head or the chiefs. Ovens of coordinator Right Eric. Enemy. Yes yes he's black. No Shit? Be Enemy, how do you spell his last? Be I N.. E.. M. Y.. Texans head Cook Offense of court. He's offensive coordinator prospects I now I just have to make sure we've been talking about the same Guy Yeah we are. Okay Eric Vietnamese at the top of the list offense coordinator, Kansas City chiefs, not a white guy no. Black people can be named Eric to it turns out. That's fair. It says he's only five seven but. He doesn't look five seven while I'm not worried about his height or weight. Think the coach. Oh, he can coach them in the door. Let's go new era. I'm stoked get Romeo Cornell out of there too. He sucks. He's like the trump or biden of the NFL at this point could him out couldn't had his chance? He's been there for fucking ever enough. Bye Bye Goodbye Gone Bill O'Brien goodbye I will never say your name again you will not get hired into important position in any franchise in the NFL likely again, you'll be like the quarterback coach for the fucking colts by next season.

Everything seems totally fine politically. Extremely. Okay. Not much to talk about. Obviously, we have to address what's gone on since we last recorded it's been a couple of days in man. Seems like a lifetime say what you will about the Dawn, but he keeps the headlines. Philo, Wing. Again I would argue no one has ever been more team content even if it is in the way possible. The Guy. Just can't stop who was in the hospital like forty eight hours. Yeah. It gets Cova did. You know he didn't want to go everybody admits this point to themselves. I'm sure he didn't want to go to the hospital trump not a fan of the optics of what that looks like. No they make them go to the hospital. We have an issues with his breeding levels and oxygen levels they go get him in there they pump him full of every drug and steroid and fucking on not approved by the Drug Administration. Just got this dude. He might as well be on like some unlike fucking from true blood. Here's like Darth vader on the table after he got his arms and legs burned off just getting pumped full of everything. Yeah. He's on V from true blood or whatever the drug is in the boys that they pump into the superheroes compound v compound, is yes K. Dome, the different letter there anyway. He makes them let him out basically well first of all when he's there. He doesn't I'm not dead? Yet Caravan. which was just One of the funniest things I've ever seen in my life. It was electric the amount of planning that had to go into that moment. Hysterical in the worst way. Possible. Again, when you think about it and I'm like the type of person where like the Shitty or something is the funnier it is to me you have to laugh to keep from crying type of thing, shirk. So watching that dude drive around first of all, who taught you how to wait? Who taught you how to do anything at this point? Did nobody ever teach you anything? That is not a wave. You. More Awkward. Didn't anyone at everything. Fuck Sake. Man. He's in their with like four secret guys immediately everybody on the left goes bat shit about the secret service. Guys are just easiest first thing to jump on like, wow he's putting a bunch of other people in danger man the honestly that wasn't my concern. The Secret Service guys are sort of their gig. My concern was holy God the amount of planning that had to go into this. I mean honest to God the amount of hours that went into that to ensure it was safe. Not just the hospital, the surrounding area I think about all the doctors and mortar pain in the fucking ads just unbelievably audacious then he checks out. Because back to the White House. And he's just they're pumping out social media tweet like he's fucking high as a Kite Connie style real for real and he. W- we read a bunch of them on Monday I believe. Now he's just acting as if it's all back to. Back to normal in with the Kovic School, he learned what he had to learn. Now. He's trying to do the debate and shit. I saw a headline yesterday they said. Joe. Biden. Thoughts on next presidential debate. So I click on it because I wanNA know Joe's thoughts on the next presidential Beijing interesting to me considering his opponent is the president and has covert. And it was a quote. It said Joe Biden doesn't think the presidential debates scheduled for this Thursday tomorrow should happen. If President Trump still has cove it. And I thought to myself. Yeah. Probably shouldn't, and then I thought to myself wait a minute. Da. He should. He's not like allowed to believe his room right? He's not like wandering around right and so that's what people are saying. They're saying that now trump has put on biden to can't like trump said I'm going to listen because he doesn't even want to debate me exactly probably because he thinks forget his lines he knows I owned him last time he won't. He won't even come back out on stage with me. It's pathetic so you'd be. Taking a nap. Yeah. Give me full of vigor just get out of the hospital haven't felt better in twenty years. Bro You're fucking seventy something that's a lie. That's a silly. Eli, they doubled down. He did anyone of the video I've said, he said I've said I've said recently I feel better having a twenty years do twenty years ago. I've seen pictures of you twenty years ago dog you were fucking. Surrounded by like playboy bunnies and models, and just living the life before any level of PC culture entered the scene to fuck your game up. There is no way you feel better now than you did twenty years ago, and if you do, it's because you're fucking high. Yeah. I. Feel Super Duper when I get out of surgery in Amman painkillers or whatever. Yeah. But that's not realistic time to be making decisions like the you know affect the free world remember really even for yourself. Remember that video that I sent you and I post on twitter me after my wisdom tooth surgery where I was talking about. Gang Yeah. That was imagined that but the president. And just tweeting without that level. Hallucination. All seriousness. Joking is on steroids now. Well, the joke is okay. They're not steroids that like Mike. Wire. Took in home runs. Their the steroid did they give you when you're sick and I've been given these steroids many times because I live in Austin Texas in horrible allergies that is until one time I was given a dose of steroid. At I believe it was a cortisone shot to be specific assured his own a steroid I'm not sure. But my dad used to get those shots in his knee is cortisone steroid google says is a manmade steroid that mimics the effect of cortisol a hormone naturally occurring the body. Thank you. Google I've got a cortisone shot to help me. To help me recover from this very bad flu cold. Whatever the fuck I had was in Asha is Nasser who was in the Asiya and it was quite large of a dose and I got home from that shot and had a total emotional and mental breakdown as a result of the fact that I have panic disorder. And what my point is this drugs in particular steroids in particular I've taken before that many times felt the effects of them on a normal person who doesn't suffer from panic disorder and they make you weird man you don't sleep as well. You you. You just wonky. May they make you irritable and in like? The world is not the same for that or here you'd while you're on that dose of steroid I took one for a week to get a rash my arm one time. I had this big ass rash like took over. My arm had to take steroids for week fucked my whole shit up dude whole week ruined could not sleep for the life of me really know and so my point is like, yeah, it is a little weird. I mean regardless of if you don't WanNa play the crazy game of like what are their drugs do they have eve? It's just the factually admitted steroid. Yeah. That's a weird concern for me as a citizen like this dude is up there working running around working like. With Co vid which has been known to trigger dementia in older people. Yeah. Pumped full of steroids that seems a little concerning. So no I don't think they should probably do the debate on Thursday. We should probably my my concern at this point is, how is this going to affect long to what? What are we looking at here? Because now, he's deflect all the attention already gone from the fact that literally the President Got Covid to the fact that he stopped the stimulus negotiations while simultaneously nonstop tweeting Nancy, Pelosi to get them done and saying that he'll sign right now or whatever the fuck just chaos like politically. I know there have been times a chaos in this country just I find it hard to believe there's been one that stacked up against this when you mix in the social media and you mix in this dudes tweeting ability like, yes I'm sure there were times in the country's history where if you handed like, let's just throw random name like Richard Nixon during Vietnam. So I was going to say if you through if you gave that man a twitter account, things probably would have been tough out there in these twitter streets. But I don't believe there would have been as tough as they are. Now I don't know that anybody would use twitter as crazily as trump does or that anybody ever. Again, it was the first thing about his presidency that we were all like, okay this is wild this guy firing off tweets all day. This is fucking crazy and we thought like on evidently he'll probably stop because it was during his campaigning. Yeah, and then at the beginning of his presidency when he was still doing it, I was like this crazy and then when he's still doing it like three and a half years later I'm like. WHOA. This is just him. Yeah this is it forever forever like I don't think you'll ever stop you want every day of his life no matter if he's president or not it'll be interesting to see if he doesn't win this election, will he go? Will he continue political commentary on his twitter will pivot back to just like random reacting brand it has to make money. Yeah that's the thing but I feel like. He could make money off literally his supporters for the rest of his life if you wanted to just selling mega hats and forty five flags God. Yeah. He built a Colt Dude Yeah. Yeah. He can for sure get paid for he was already getting paid forever. The thing about him that's valuable is that he can slang trump bobble heads in the museums in DC like the shops and the museums and DC that's Crazy yeah. Fame. His business practices are trash. I wonder if post for the only value in him is his brand. So this is the greatest branding move ball time to become president, but then it's like, yeah, the question is, how do you? What do you pivot to from there? What that is the most famous you can be. You cannot go higher what now sort of it's like for like Michael. Jordan. When it's over in the NBA, like that's tough for athletes to move on what's going to do when he's already achieved most famous person in in living on the world, maybe he'll turn his golf courses into private Free State's. Lynch shitting money out of his ass for terrible real estate deals in horrible hotels and golf course he'll turn them into like. Not Nice places. Terrible deals though yes yes. But he'll turn them into like Portland style free states where his supporters can come in commune and live together like a waste of. Red and. For Fox I wonder if that's like one of the possibilities if they offer him like ten million years. Fox Commentary. I don't know Foxwood. Asked trump to work for them like I. Feel like that's like making a very bold decision. You may be thinking too highly of Fox maybe I. Guess I guess I might be do you think you'll try to run again? If he loses because he could it's happened before I don't know. I don't it would be over. There's no rekindling that madness once people have gotten sick of it and let it go I feel like it's like that's it. I'm trying to find the name of this one guy on Fox News where Tucker Carlson yes. As long as he works there, that's actually a good point as they the other day they were like. It was like a commercial and it was like, Fox News Presidential Reporting Election Twenty, twenty all the information you need in ended with the anchorman shot of like nine reporters like folding their arms or like putting their you know. They look in one of them was that fucking guy. Tucker Carlson and that was like how in the sweet Jesus Christ that's like being like. I'm trying to think even if we had a new show and we did that and it was nine of us, and then one of them was just a sesame street character. And I was like I don't understand why people don't take seriously as a news organization won't maybe if big bird wasn't your fucking running one of your more popular shows on the network, then people would take it seriously. Let's issue. Shows on the network bird would be a moral stand moral ground week could stand on comparatively light. Tucker Carlson's just content that's not news at all. He doesn't know actual reporting. He's of carpeting guy yeah, like waters. Continent guy. They don't that's not the news. There's no journalism to be had there. That's if he's in a stack. I can't what and I'm sure. There's a CNN person. The is comparative comparatively stupid but I could not believe they ran out. It was so serious and I was like damn sounds like Fox is trying to put it back toward like being actually reporting on things and then and then that fucker showed up and I was like now never mind they're just. made it sound serious speaking of which. We'll start talking about politics now because it's it's I grow weary but huge news. Therefore names on the ballot for president. People you can vote for. Four parties have you didn't know. Republicans Democrats. Green Party. And then the libertarian candidate. And we have lined up an interview with the Libertarian candidate for. President Joe. Jorgenson doctor Jorgensen. For this Friday that will appear on Monday show. Now listen if some crazy shit happens between now and then it doesn't actually get to the her I apologize for getting hype but I don't think that's going to be the case we've got a time slot. We're all booked up and WE'RE GONNA be talking to one of the four people on the presidential ballot for twenty twenty so. Obviously I don't align as a terrier I'm not a registered libertarian. I. Don't I don't honestly know all that much about what defines libertarian anymore, and that's one of the things we're GONNA be talking to Dr Jorgensen about as well as just getting sort of for takes on this whole election as as a whole and And I'M GONNA come up with as many questions as I. Can we've got a very short twenty minutes with her? So point is just kind of cool to get a presidential candidate on the show. Obviously that's a pretty big deal for us and an exciting one and I'm excited to see what what kind of answers we can get out of her and regard to providing any type of. Clarity to our current situation and her messaging and what she believes would be best for this country moving forward just to hear from one of the four candidates is obviously were not going to get access to donald trump or Joe Biden, and honestly even if we did, we would just hear the same shit we hear everywhere else. So next Monday got that to look forward to. Going to have a little bit of a more politically heavy show on. Monday. Obviously talking about the election and calls and I are going to talk a lot about what we're going to be doing in the coming weeks to prepare ourselves for voting as we have not done early voting yet and still need to be educated on a lot of the candidates on the ballot and that'll be that. So yeah, it is a mess out there things have. been worse politically. But at the same time, we have a presidential candidate coming on the show. And we got that going for us. That's what I'm saying. I'm proud of US honestly look at US making big move. You believe it talking real politics yes. So before that on Monday Dr Joe Jorgenson the Libertarian candidate for president Monday on our VP RV p. three, thirty eight is also brought to you by Pancho outdoors.

RVP IMPACT Initiative. So, for over a year now. We've been doing something called the RPM, packed initiative that kind of comes and goes. It's where Chris and I receive emails from fans telling their stories about how the show has impacted them and their lives. Right. So we get a lot of these in from time to time. We'll pick one that we WANNA share. Sometimes, we'll do a whole segment with several of them. Today we have one Chris received an email from a fan. Talking about his experience that we're gonNA share with you momentarily. Now before we get to that, if you would like to share your experience with our BP, how this community this show has impacted you or in some way if you have a cool story like that. Paula Rattus Chris at Ross Bowl and podcast dot com is Chris Z. Mellon mine is Ross at Ross Bohlin podcast dot com just put the subject line as rvp impact initiative and boom. You're good to go Chris. Will you share with us the e mail that you received and we'll get into it quickly absolutely and? I didn't ask if I could use this on the show and this wasn't technically four and impact initiatives. So I'm GONNA leave the name anonymous this guy want us a desert this guy won a shirt on the twitter stream the other night and share the story that he related to about a to me about specifically he says Cole's first off I just want to say that you're the fucking man your testimony about how you dealt with adderall addiction and more specifically the details of your addiction made me feel so seen not too long ago I weighed one hundred and nineteen pounds soaking wet a saying five to six hours a week skipping meals and was skipping meals to pay for it. I now have my weight to a healthy place, my brother and I working out five days a week. Bro Fit inspired by Ross fit. I'm not skipping meals and one hundred day sobriety from phetamine was last Sunday anyway. I just wanted to thank you for sharing. Thank you both for everything. You do I legitimately don't know where I'd be if I never discovered the show. Love you guys gang gang gang talk soon. So we get a lot of emails like this from people who have related to. Kohl's in is stories right whether it's something to do with addiction mental health, a family, an experience we had in our lives and oftentimes. Win Given that. The gift of one of those emails from a fan it sort of reinforces it within Chris and I. And my belief is that when we share these fans stories and emails with y'all as well the listener stories and emails. It even further is the message that you are not alone, and there are so many people out there who struggle with these things and deal with these things on a daily basis and so far. Again, I didn't realize that specific one was not four and our VP impact initiative but. Amphitheater with the listener insure he's cool with it so. If you WanNa Holler your stories If something you've gone through that, you believe other listeners would relate to connect with and perhaps feel better about themselves from having heard than Hollywood, our emails, Chris it Ross Bohlin podcast dot com Ross at Ross Bowl and podcast dot com and Kristen I will will discuss on the show Yeah it. It's it's such a difficult thing to grapple with drug abuse. It was specially when they're prescription drugs like adderall in particular is such a difficult one because so many people start out actually needing it and utilizing it properly before they fall, do hazardous and unhealthy relationship with it, and it's something that I've watched in my own personal life take a friend. And colleague of mine and spiral them really low in in really fast. How out of control got and if inevitably, what happens when you get cut off by the doctors a your addy guy runs dry as you turn to street drugs and it just spirals even further from there and in adderall is a dangerous one man it scares me so much i. Hate to say this but I'm confident that in the way that we have an opioid epidemic currently at some point, the amphetamine epidemic is coming because I know too many adderall babies I know too many people who have been on it for twenty years. And they operate like fucking robots in it's wild and they don't even have a doctor, not a doctor that they have to go meet with. It gets filled somebody fills the script in big Pharma crushes and and these people the turn into admirals on bees and it sucks, and if any all have an his other thing if you prescribe to and you know you have an issue with it talked to a doctor if you're abusing it already, you can't just jump off talk to a doctor like I don't know how that affects your heart I don't know you personal medical history and help. So I'm not here to tell you how. To get off of drugs I'm telling you that you need to get off of them if they're doing you a disservice and they're bad for you and you know your relationship with them is no longer healthy than do something about it take a step in the right direction incorrect course, and sometimes that can be done without the help of things like Rehab and doctors or rather medication but sometimes you need help and if you need help, there's no shame in that. So ask for and receive it. Absolutely any other thoughts on email from the listener? Chris. No Dude. I mean a lot to me to hear that you know when when he said something to me about it made me feel seen as well because that's not something that's not something that you know I've talked about with a ton people and so for somebody to reach out and tell me they've gone through the same thing struggled with the same things in our especially it's awesome that he's now on the up and up as well and I I mean we had a little bit more of a discourse after that just talking about you know day by day get better every day every day's a grind and. You know keep working towards what you're aiming for. But I mean that that's the scary thing about all is that it takes such a toll on your physical health as well if you use it like fucking. This step below method. Yeah, and I mean like, yeah, it's not. It's not a good drug. It's it's definitely not a good drug and can be abused very easily. The issue it again it's. It's again again it's a good drug for some people. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. I'm saying it can be abuser very easily. I would say it's just like Xanax in that. Wish her they're absolutely if you if I heard this show and you said Zanex is not a good drug I would flip. The Fletcher absolutely, you know what I mean because there are people who need it and you take it properly than there are people who abuse it and give it the negative perception stigma that it has and what I'm saying is without her all in particular it was so accessible that I believe that's such a massive number of people. If I know a handful, just one guy like I don't know that many people fam- I don't keep up with that are. Of I know a few that have issues with still I'm like osas. Well what happens is it's like cyclical like you you're. So it keeps you awake were not necessarily awake, but like really alert indefinitely awake as well. So it keeps you awake and then you the drink yourself to sleep and then more smokers like that, and then you don't get good rests. So you need to take another one the next day to keep you awake and then you stay up even later because you took that one later in the. Day because you slept in a little bit later and then all the sudden you're now taking one at two PM and you're staying up until five am and then you're sleeping for two hours and you're eating one how you're like eating one meal a day because he's never had a weight now you look like ask you got bags under your eyes you're fucking tweaking all the time you're always in south park dislike. Yeah it's awful. So if you. Just, take care of yourself and never be afraid to talk about it and. Just take steps day one day at a time like we always and I've had friends that have been prescribed that like think those are just part of it and like that's not the case you talk to your doctor, get your prescription, your doses adjusted ask them about the difference between different types of releases, short releases, long release, and things like make sure you're taken care of and don't just like except that it's supposed to make you feel that way if you are feeling, you got questions doctor that doctor works for you. Yeah and if you don't feel comfortable about something or like you've gotten a good enough explanation, get another fucking doctor because Dr Works for you.

Chiefs-Patriots & Packers- Falcons Recap, Houston Fires Bill O'Brien, and TNF Week 5 Preview

"Around with the NFL gas. Make their mamas proud and. The. Welcome. To another edition of the around the NFL podcast. My name is Dan. Hans is coming to you for me virtual room filled with Heroes Greg Rosenthal marks Tessler, and he's back the great. Patrick Claybon Boys. I don't know if I've earned the fired, but it's great to be with you guys. I can confirm that that was a great money intro right there. Did he say Mommy's either way mommy's or Mama's coming out of his mouth? This was funny. A Patrick good to see you as I expected the quarantine is treating you well, the the pandemic. You're. You look like you're beach ready right now sitting on the floor with your arms crossed over your knees. All calm, cool collected and absolutely beautiful as always. So congratulations on being Patrick Claybon once again. Basking Quo of all of you gentlemen today you know I'm I'm huddled on the floor of my baby girls room the chair that I was sitting and actually fell apart subsequently before the Barker phone that I was gonNA use fell apart. So are you? Sure. It's not working out but hey. We get to spend time together and still got your electricity though lights are on the lights are on. All right. So great to have claybon back with us on a very busy show. We are going to dig in on the mess down there in Houston Texans after the surprise firing, a Bill O'Brien, and we're having a friend of the show. Down there in Houston Seth Payne, he's going to join us to talk about what happens next in Houston and and I was perusing Seth's twitter account. He's pretty fired up about what direction they should go and The belief that they should not be done with their firings at Bill O'Brien but we'll get to all that also Thursday night football preview. To come. In the game between who mark. It will be a game between the bears very exciting and the bucks. One of many Primetime Games for the Bucks Nice I always love. Quiz question on me like it's it's a great way to. Build report with me. Assuming I guess the question marks here for Thursday. Maybe. Absolutely, and we'll check in on what's going on right now in the League in this uncertainty around cove and nineteen and the teams affected. But before we do that, let's start with two games played on. Monday. Night starting with the rescheduled cove nineteen postponement between the chiefs and the Patriots fires it. High. Six Julia. Last year let the national. Football. League drops he's such a great receiver, but he lost concentration in the office left arm. Honey Badger who each the snake and runs all the way to the end zone talk stereo. With seats. Mitchell wd a couple of things there he went. He went for elements throat they're bringing up that he has issues with drops live in real time during the the pick six return. and then he ate the snake is that what it was that's what a scores I don't know but I loved it. Mitch with the call. The Kansas City chiefs are four. No for the fourth consecutive season that doesn't even seem possible. But it's true after a twenty six to ten win over the Patriots at Arrowhead a game that was six to three at halftime. The chiefs powerhouse that they are didn't score their first touchdown to Layton third quarter the patriots hung around but suspect quarter play quarterback play from Brian Hoyer. Helped undermine them in this game Greg You Let's start with the pats here. Your Cam. Newton. Mrs. This game obviously after testing positive for corona virus and Hoyer was for me. Surprised I was actually I had my head down cranking out power rankings. I just assumed Johnston. Was the backup because that was the thing I've been all year him and apparently it turns out that Hoyer was the guy but I don't court the backup anymore now I? Don't think so and Bill Belichick on Tuesday would not reveal who would start on Sunday against the broncos which is usually assigned that they'll. They'll go with the guy who came in. Unless cameras available, which is possible. Why play Brian Hoyer because there's two type of backup quarterbacks that I think you. Would want one is like the ultra aggressive just. I don't care what's going to happen DJ F. Ryan Fitzpatrick type when he was the backup and like it or even driscoll like whatever is going to go for the other that you would like is just like an athletic guy that gives you some. SORT. Of Advantage Brian Hoyer is neither he's in theory like a veteran good decision maker who very often in his career. Looks like the moments too big for him to use one of your terms and hate sorta going so non. Technical. But when you sale your first two passes on key third downs in the first two drives by like ten yards like that looks like nerves. Then you throw an interception, you take a terrible sack at the end of the first half. And then you get bench through another big mistake in the third quarter, he prevented them from potentially winning this game because. You said this was one of your favorite Patriots Games or maybe your favorite of all time and I wasn't sure why you said that but I I was happy you were on the same train as me, which is this was a vintage bill belichick defensive performance, which if you like ugly Footballer Defensive Football was kind of fun for me to watch and apparently you to greg. It goes by now mark sometimes he just likes to move the needle you know. Social Account no no. You know what? Because that's very cynical take on that because I. Honestly this was the thing I. Don't think this game should have even been played I get you have to, and you have to force it all along with Corona. But the idea that one team has to go out there against the Kansas City chiefs of all teams in the League with your starter out of the picture, you don't have a capable backup. The right half of your line is missing they have kirk forensics, Son Planes Center Billiton's best friend from Iowa I mean the stuff that was stacked against New England last night in the idea that he still found a way to beguile Patrick Mahomes Thing that I could not get out of my mind was the million shots to patch homes on the sideline. During that first half, he's just sort of like hands over his head to get on the field because they were just making a tough on the chiefs and the thing with Brian Hoyer. At the end of that half when he took that sack and you just saw belichick explode and Josh mcdaniels was furious. It's like we're not asking you to save the planet earth. Okay Brian Hoyer We know you can't do that but you can't have you. He showing the complete lack of veteran presence and to Greg's point you would think that Brian Hoyer who spent like seven years with the Patriots over his career would pick up a few tips along the way on how to handle the final minute of a game where you're still in it against all odds unbelievable performance by Brian and then stood him I. Love is live on a guy is throwing picks all over the place to. Drought cheaper the first pick. Was Bad by. With just a drop, it unearthed one of the potentially great coaching. It was a great coaching job, but he was completely unspoiled by his hideous quarterbacks wasn't how the other half lives Patriots Fan sometimes, your quarterback just suck and it ruins everything was was it really an unbelievable performance from Brian? VOYEUR. This is the Brian Hoyer that we've been watching right on them too. Yeah. That's if you. Search your twitter name and at Hoyer and just scroll through your reactions anybody can do this. Through the years game, we're reacting to this game that he had last night over and over again for multiple franchises for the browns for the Texans and now for the Patriots, this is Brian it's not the moment being too big for Brian where he's gotTa be good in practice Claybon. Category Rain anything else he? He's a really nice guy. He knows the playbook I guess. But he's not a good football player and that's fine like it's okay. You don't have to be good at football I guess to be a good person but there's there's definitely better at playing quarterback from Brian earlier was it wasn't Patrick's right it wasn't that this moment was too big for Brian Hoyer all every moment is too big for Brian. Hoyer. Not to pile on the guy but yeah, that did and it did cry as someone who enjoys a little bit of rain falling down on the throne of ease it also was a reminder like. If things don't break a little differently for the Patriots this off season, and there isn't a team that aggressively targets Cam Newton. This would have been there reality. This would have been there it. They would have been just living and dying every week hoping to get. Basic quarterback play so good actucal. It's and they dad to travel the day of the game but you're right just imagine how vulnerable they wanted. They would have been if another team in and said, well, we're going to the Chicago bears. Started stood him. They brought him in the fourth quarter I. think precisely because they have another game next week in which. Cam Newton might not be available, and so they wanted to see them in why not take this opportunity to see them who been pumping up. And as a young player for the whole game because the defense I took a lot out of this game because I was not encouraged by how this defense has played in the first three weeks, it was really built. Almost entirely in some way to stop Kansas City and teams like Kansas, city. So I guess like they they are uniquely situated to slow mahomes down but you know the the chiefs had what five months, the first six possessions the only scored nineteen points and nine possessions. They did an awesome job chase, which is for real their secondary played their best game of the year and yes, if it wasn't for. You know the offense of total brain farts by Heuer they had a good chance to win this game but that defense having that type of day makes me think other than missing dont`a hightower, which to me is just been one of the biggest missing pieces ever. He he I always knew how valuable he was, but they miss him so much every game Bentley is a pretty big negative for them. It, give me a little hope there Dan that the defense you know come together and I'll take the moral victory. Taking it and take the chiefs took the real one. But that was not the true branded Monday night football game that was played at. Lambofield. Let's check in on that game. Thirty Three Bhakta. Pasco's Rogers backpedaling, backpedaling, posing, arching, pass down the Middle Wide Open, the tight end a touchdown. At, the goal line tinyan his third of the night. Other TEDI Rogers, four touchdown passes tonight and he looks down at his right hand and he's kind of one to four touch. By Rogers. Kevin Harland with the call on Westwood One. Weekend. Only play this on for this game because is being owns the rights to this game and CBS on the right to the other. That's a two story Aaron Rodgers. Plan playing without divide Adams without Allen Lazard it doesn't matter right now because that's where Aaron Rodgers is. Right now in his sixteenth season twenty, seven of thirty, three for three hundred, twenty, seven yards, four touchdowns no picks passer rating of forty, one, hundred, forty, seven and a half and yes, you heard it Robert Tyson. West is boy six for ninety eight and three touches. Thirty two, sixteen, the packers cruise over the falcons the packers are foreign. Oh. and. And the bearded boy Matt will floor has an insane winning percentage through a year and a quarter and the Falcons Patrick Claybon in for Dan Quinn could be the next to go. And it's Kinda surprising right that that this is we got to this point in the season and we saw coach that wasn't Dan Quinn. Go before Dan Quinn seeing as he is he's Kinda wearing this. This giant waited Jane of being defensive minded coach and having a just a laughable defense th they got to a point last night where. Aaron Rodgers the company could really do whatever they want to do. It wasn't Bob Tanya and having three touchdowns it could have been anybody else. Aaron Jones. Legitimately. Could've probably had fifty point fantasy game last night but they checked it down offered him able to rest up they didn't even start Davante Adams who was upset last night. Or. Yesterday morning with this idea that they think they know my hamstring better than I do. But it's like dude, we don't put lady on. This team. This team in this defense, particularly isn't very good in the clock is ticking as as Nice of guys Dan Quinn is. Just like to have some results on that side of the football, and they just don't have any sessile who's nicer Dan Quinn or Brian hoyer settled. Randomly met him at the same super bowl and. Brian. Hoyer was so nice. To be with his wife and we had a small child at the time and I'm just like. Oh. My God, he's so nice. Art, I struggle with that because also Dan Quinn was. Adequate and I do think Dan Quinn is like I don't think he's going to turn into an evil person because of this but settle it, settle it though I think Dan Quinn is nicer because I didn't get enough time Brian what a rough Monday for Brian. I mean, he's he's a close second, but I mean forget Dan Quinn I mean this is the game and I'm late. I'm late to this because I've been rough on the packers forever a- like in even last year's packers just didn't buy the whole operation I totally do now I realize that make the last person in the room but Matla Florida me proved last night he can be one. Of those coaches that ups the creativity beyond what a normal coach can do i, mean the fact that they're missing all the wide receivers that they were and came out calling it the most efficient offensive week for the way that they're using different players left and right it kind of reminds me of this hideous Javy game. We're all these injuries and put it safety me played this team from. Trumbull that had no quarterback found. Kill these guys they have no quarterback and there's direct snapping. Into your playing days well, no. I still nightmares about this, their direct snapping the ball like midway through the first quarter they change it up to a two hundred and twenty pound person and he's barreling through the defense and I'm playing deep safety get this guy off the field and I like six plays in a row. I've got this guy coming at me and I'm just like I want to be in my house watching like little house on the prairie right now what am I doing here? So when you can beguile the defense, the way that Green Bay did I mean I just saw so many communication breakdowns in Atlanta's totally battered secondary on Aaron Rodgers touchdown on the first. The first score I mean he there was no one within fifteen yards of it was like a embarrassing preseason looking performance by Atlanta's defense often look like a poorly coached defense and I think one of the best test is when you have a bunch of injuries, can you still hold it together and look well coached? Maybe you're not gonNA win or look great but are you going to have a total collapse and that's what's happened to the Falcons Multiple Times to be fair they've had an incredible amount of injuries. They're not just missing a couple of guys they have five start every basically every starting defensive back was hurt and another other than Kendall Sheffield. Primarily replacements got hurt to demonte Casey got hurt during the game. So they're missing an entire secondary, but this has happened to Atlanta. Before when they have injuries suddenly it's like that's the excuse why were the very worst defense in the league and it's like no. Other teams would hold it together and get some sort of stops and not have all of those breakdowns and the packers have so many weapons I mean Tamara Williams has been really good this year. It's funny because everyone killed the packers to I do picks and the second one of those was Aj Dylan the seven thousand pound running back. He can't get on the field either he's like the Jordan love running backs Jamal Williams. is motivated just like a Aaron. Rodgers is apparently motivated and Williams played great this year and he's a great receiver and you could see last night. I think you're right. About the devante Adams thing that they're like city, they're also going into a bike. It's like they don't even need to use Aaron Jones every snap. Volumes half the time because they're like, let let's just ease off the pedal with Aaron Jones. We can beat the Falcons with any of our guys where this go down as the greatest packers draft of the last twenty years with two high selections that aren't even on the field just for the fact that it set a fire under so many buttocks. But that's the only way to explain it. Like. Because legitimately This was a team that really looked overmatched against the forty niners in the playoffs and then they draft to players but they aren't even using, but they've they've gotten better. Here to assist system but like packers fans. Yes. Stick it to the people who did know you're not using the players. On the field I really did think of the time people were overreacting if only because the first two draft picks on your team are not gonna maker Break Your season like we've watched enough football that of course you want them to come and contribute. But if anything this is validation that the packers should be thinking long term, I'd rather have a developmental quarterback than like t higgins I'm sorry. I just even antiguans good like I'd rather have a quarterback anyways. Yeah it's pretty amazing that we're talking about now the offense having. All, this firepower when the whole story, all through the off season was while they screwed Rogers here they didn't get him help. He still doesn't have enough help and maybe a part of this is rogers to changing always played. We've heard a lot about like. How he's become more zen this season and how he's more introspective than ever before, and he's become an addition to his incredible intelligence a like some type of Shaman or something. I don't know what's going on that storyline but I would like to get more of a football take on what's taken him from this and he even said it like when he was asked like, how do you explain your career resurgence and he fairly pointed out he's like my quote unquote. Bad years, career years from any other quarterbacks, which is fairly true. But also, I, want to know what the light that went on. Is this all just the competitor is this that is a shaman like had this had because he's unbelievable schedule schedule has helped the offensive line certainly and yeah year too I. Think I think there really is something to that. We've seen a lot of systems take off your to like Kyle Shanahan when he was in Atlanta and Matt Leflore. Was On that staff actually in year two, you know they just seem to seem to know what they're doing years before that were he he and Mike McCarthy retired each other and it's like think of any environment that you're in rediscovering getting your board, you need a little bit of a spark and the spark is common. The spark is Matt Leflore. He's not a little boy with a beard anymore he's just you can't call him that he's four years older i. Think. It was Roger Sherman from the Ringer who pointed that out I was like shocked by that that he's four years older than Aaron Rodgers Well Jen everyone calls the quarterback old and the coach seems so young right heads in my garage last December labeled Matlock Leflore the bearded boy it was more based on his youthful appearance in how house incongruent he had this full facial hair i. don't think it was like saying that he was overmatched and the GIG just A. Bit of that. I want to make one final point in this game, their own four and I and I have seen a little bit of the chatter beginning of like well. Is this the end of Ryan in Atlanta which is I think that's a but falcons fans are thinking about that and it is interesting the Thomas draft in this entire run, which has been by far the most successful run in Atlanta Falcons history started with Dimitrov. and Matt Ryan Together, and I don't think they're going to have the same front office or coach next year. I do think that Ryan. would be worth keeping around but he he needs to be special to kind of them competitive and he's not special rating or you wonder if Julio Jones could be dangled in trey draft the guy and keep Ryan for another year or two thousand saving you censor radical boot could be in the potentially for Atlanta. All right. Good. Talk there. One game was CBS Sunday property that was shifted the other was Monday night football. But now we move forward to talk about the Texans. And to do that US welcome in. He is the CO host. On the morning show. That sports radio six ten in Houston. Played a decade in the NFL with Texans. And the Jaguars. Collegiate standout at Cornell ever heard of it. and. Now, he's making his return to the around the NFL podcast talk about what comes next for the Texans it's sad. Mom. Reading a book. Pass it on by Sean. Right that for audio listeners set. knee-deep in. Premature biography by Amazon Watson. Right or it it's a long. It's a long book for a young man. I'll tell you that much one hundred. Chapter about how Bill O'Brien is the right man to take me through my career. Dishonest professors loved for for Bill O'Brien at times and. Is. Always. Said Sean is a guy that is truly committed to doing things the right way. Is I was just reading the book true. Greatness takes time and patience. Effective leader I was learning their expresses impatience with goals that require time. And With John is he's patient and I think he was really patient with Bill O.. Rien. Much as he could and try to do right by Bill O'Brien's I don't i. don't know how many tears he's crying for Bill O. Rien Line or moving on from him. But I think the sentiment here in Houston was that he's reached his limit with Bill O. Rien and need somebody else to start developing shawn. Watson. You know said that was tracking your twitter ahead of today's appearance. And I found it interesting. I'm going to read actually a tweet from set because he's got a pretty fire take about what's going on in that building here. Here it is the only way I'll be okay with Jack. Easterby remaining in the organization is if he hires somebody else to be the genuine general manager oversee culture and all that Ted talk drivel, but don't let him near a calculator or a Docu sign APP. So you're basically saying everybody saying we've figured out that the problem here it was Bill O'Brien, the power hungry monster that he was getting out of here but you're saying they're still might be another beast lurking beneath the surface you. Yes that's Jack Easterby the vice president of football operations whose previous stays in the NFL included his time as the team pastor in Kansas City. The character coach in New England somehow, he bolted himself up into two now the supreme executive position on the football side of operations in Houston beneath ownerships. And this whole last year, it's been presented to us that, hey, Bill O'Brien in Jackie Speier just walking in lockstep. These guys they've got a plan for the Texans. It'll be fine. Really Andre Hawkins doping deal with got Randall Cobb coveted. Hey, don't worry about. Nebi County. It's easy to stop the run and rush the passer. Now. All of a sudden I. It. No. The whole problem is just that Bill O'Brien doesn't know which played a call on fourth and one. All these are L. moves yielded you just a magnificent roster didn't kind of nervous that the got a nervous ownership doesn't understand just how much has been wreaked on this roster. I would say I love your easterby heat because I read the Greg. BAVARD. Article that you also sent out on your twitter and it goes back in time talking about the fact that there's the stew -ality to Easterby yes, he is this pastor and he's helped all these families and people are like he's a good guy and I liked him. But he's also really like a magnet for he's power hungry and Phil O'Brien well. No easterby came in like heat. First of all, it's really irritated. The Patriots when he left New England and it sounds like he might have been a little bit behind some of this nick area business and all this other stuff that happened I mean he's Kinda feels like a senator palpitation kind of lodged into the middle of the republic here I don't like it at all. If I'm a Texas Fan, you gotta get deeper and root him out. It's how do you bring someone new in in say this is going to be lurking alongside your your first year coaching career in Houston it's like it's like getting into a relationship. With, someone who is cheating on their significant other like why would you trust that person to not continue to cheat Jack Jack Easter Easterby by the way but are completely predicted that he was going to take over the organization two years ago. Dak Easterby was hired by Bill Brian because they were so close. Jackie should be pretty obviously uses media contacts. To burnish his reputation to rise in the industry. Oh. By the way who did that like better than any coach I've ever seen Bill O'Brien who like kept her know was never got out of the media cycle. Had had a certain agent never got out of the media cycle turn like okay. Jobs into all these opportunities but was awesome at office politics and using the media and sidling up to ownership to figure out how to get more power. So Easter becomes in by all accounts rap seat says the relationship turned sour in in a minute where suddenly O'Brien how I read into, it was shocked that he had been backstabbed by this guy. who was probably cozying up with ownership? Basically, he did the bill O'Brien move all these, Brian no like. I don't know as on a has been on a football staff and 'cause plays and had some track record of success. I'm with you said this this for whatever reason it's on my radar, they deserve a total restart. Patrick and can't you like? Isn't the last thing if you were a texans fan wouldn't it be like another patriots? Reboot 'cause there's some talk that like Easterby is GonNa Bring in. mcdaniels or they'll do some sort of like patriots light again, which just seems like the worst thing to do you just you just want the next coach I saw so many people floating. This idea that that will this is the spot right we've been waiting. For so long to to get an opportunity to coach are coming out of Kansas City due to come in there and it's like well is is this the spot? Is he going to have? This opportunity to be successful in Houston, and I kind of wonder go because Greg you were talking about you know Bill O'Brien keeping his media contacts like looking at sess Tomlin of the past twenty four hours like an Air Wilson's Tomlin I do want to bring up one of errands tweets where he said when GM Villa Brian People over the years he did so with a lot of F. bombs in order to get the F out of the building immediately person. That wasn't how he was dismissed today and just like that little sprinkle right. So little that little bit spring out there was. About these swinkels that are coming out of Houston. Because I. Feel like you guys are okay with the events here. Right, and honestly for the most part with the media, he had his bristling moments. But yeah, there's always these things you'd hear about the way treated people are the way interacted with people. The the best video evidence was at halftime of the Denver game when he got into a shouting match with a fan of where he said now quote. Myself you suck to lead. Light, them more after that. Paid the moment we're in the middle of the playoff thought it was the best thing ever the. Two weeks later. Making a plan for and they were up twenty, four, hundred nothing like three games ago in the divisional playoffs Edman he did not win another game after that. It's crazy how? Quickly at certain, that's why I blame ownership way more and there was a vacuum and I know you can speak to this better, but there is a vacuum of power. Their previous owner died and then his son Cao comes in and bill O'Brien kind of fills it. But I blame all of this in fact on ownership and if they continue on with Easterby that's on them too because they're they're the ones who okayed all of these trades and bringing in. Easterby. They promoted Bill O'Brien in January and gave him a long new contract. So he he lasted four games with that long GM. Them what kind of trying to get a sense or a feel for exactly how this progress in what cal McNair the owner was thinking along the way whether this is just an experiment using to see how it played out because he likes Jack Easterby as you said, Easter becomes. He has a wave ingratiating himself the people. You might call him an opportunist and. It's just it training camp. You know my co host. Sean Pendergast was one of the few media members allowed in training camp this off season and it was, hey, it was Jack Bill, riding side by side. These guys are the dynamic duo. All of a sudden things go south butte first few weeks of the season and there's a shakeup in Jackie's be survived look. There's no shortage of drama here ownership allowed Bill O'Brien. In Jackie's should be to execute these trades. Two Siamese veteran players renegotiate guys in giving extensions that are far above the probable market value. Still, kind of impressive account McNair pull the trigger on Bill O. Rien this early in the season I just I worry that Jackie's has his tendrils into the organization in that he somehow he can't be the general manager this to play. Well, Hey, do you think that's how it's GonNa end up if you gotta guess there's a fifty fifty chance. That is in game. He wants to get to that level where that's what's been reporting thought. So and he basically was at that level. That's that's why it makes zero sense because easterby made these trades with O'Brien. He, he traded the Andre Hopkins He. made the trade for. The dolphins are loving. This Texas and seasons they have offers picks of the Texans in the first and second round next year they I mean. They might get a chance to draft Trevor Lawrence or who knows or trade the pick that is Trevor Lawrence like. They gave the extensions. This has been a little under the Raider, a crazy extension to me to Whitney Mercilus who's been a good player in seems like a great guy, but was a wild. Extension, and the extension project Cunningham was kind of wild to. A lot of things going on. This on Watson though it can't be they've had this. I was reading the to Shawn Watson Book is that's you get the sense that this organization right now is being run by a basically a whole bunch of motivational Jim Yelm just nonsense that they picked up in a hardcover pamphlet that divide the airport because it looks like a good way to maybe improve your performance at work. Just mantras all over the place. Do the next best thing be. Dependable. I WanNa, tell you how discombobulated this is they came up with this these three things that they want the players to be dependable tuck in smart guys we spent. We spent with this brain trust with the Texans nine months trying to figure out which order you're supposed to pronounce. In they started off seeing smart tough dependable do your Andrew. They moved onto house, which is Kinda. Cool touchdowns. Right. But then he got bill O'Brien's Zan. You got you got Jackie Speier been saying Titas D.. Adult finally, they put it on a t shirt during training camp. We couldn't come to a consensus on how to say. It's that kind of an organization. I have the sense of like basically, you remember those old motivational work posters from the eighties where there's a little hang on just an air. Picture of Vince lombardi yelling at a player or something it's a it's an organization fueled by motivational nonsense. You know you didn't it good to see you Patrick by the way you weren't here last time. Are under different circumstances you made another good points up to that. If you WANNA take anything out of this now it's it's not house money because you're down a lot but There's no reason to tank because you don't have your picks anyway. So maybe Shawn Watson maybe with Bill O'Brien out of their. You know crazier things have happened this India go chargers started own four and went to the Super Bowl. That's not gonNA happen to the Texans but I wouldn't be totally stunned with a Watson team got hot one three in a row, and then all of a sudden it's like, oh, they're kind of frisk in the mix for that seven. I'm not totally counting out the season as a loss 'cause. That's great. Man is somehow then we're going to start hearing while you fire Bill O'Brien too soon boy you just said you pull the plug. I think for Omya, Romeo Kevin last I believe that was the last time he was made interim head coach. I feel like he's been injured times but that's how he kept the job in Kansas. City he was made interim. Did pretty well, and then got one more year. Which? Astor. All this coach in NFL history be George Halas, marv Levy. I believe I. Think he's seventy three years old. So would we love Cornell years? He's been here is that he's been he's been the all time defensive coordinator I don't know what you guys called the all time player back where you grow up the all time to the bill always step in. There's a regional difference on the all time to. Like when defensive coordinator Romeo kill got demoted by promotions of Raval could be the defensive coordinator Denver able left in Romeo stepped in was defensive coordinator and then Anthony Weavers. Now, the defensive coordinator but Romeo's such a dude did he stuck around and now he's the head coach of. Way I just realized they took a picture at midfield before last week's game of the three all-time Texans coach Dom. Capers is on Gary Kubiak staff and Minnesota which I didn't even realize on that staff and Minnesota in a Bill O'Brien was there and so they had a nice photo op of the. Who knew they were only taking it because that was bill O'Brien last game eastern. Knew because in my draft folder I ever tweet that says, Hey, it's the three former coaches of the Houston Texans that I decided against tweeting out. Before. Keeping a positive. Alright seth before you just want to get this out there because I couldn't live with myself. You seem like a man of principle family man an Ivy League scholar. But the celebration of the Astros? Kind underdog story, it's uncouth and it's beneath you. Come on. Do must stop lobbing my team. Years ago I feel like anybody who does if you don't understand not speaking to any of you here because I wouldn't be like this but you can't understand why somebody would still love something after that thing has made a mistake I feel like I feel like it's an indictment of your own parenting skills because you as children who haven't made mistakes and s you still walk. And I'll see this U2's I've given up trying to argue relitigate the cheating scandal and how. Many teams may have been doing with the US has redoing say Jose altuve May, this one thing I would say to you and your esteemed audience who I love because the best of the best listenership outside of the listeners of pain Pendergast's in the land. Who Else do? He's been made the face of this scandal and he is one of the three players who participated nece released didn't WanNA part of it. The players will tell you that. The Independent investigator that started a website where he tried to count the number of thump city heard said L. to obey had a least suspicion of any of those. We saw the wire under the Jersey. As you hold on over here everyone everyone over. And then his turns it look champion didn't have that night through six balls in a road couldn't find his fastball and Jose had a new. Hip Beneath yourself but they've been trying to tear his. Jersey aw after walk-off since two, thousand, fifteen this. No. You sound like a parent of a child that will always defend the child no matter how hideous they are I'm defined defending Jose altuve in that's it grew. Jose Altuve is happy on the show down there in Houston when the Yankees are playing a male. So yes, let's talk about her history will prove me right. All Right said besides that it was awesome. You're such a great voice in all things Houston sports related. So. We appreciate it and please join us again in my best to Chris and I tell you honestly to be very serious. The way you guys have handled. Just everything with Chris end in. As he's fought his way through this. It's been. It's been really cool I. Got teared up at times just when you guys are being really funny about talking about your little see Dan or anything like that. It's been It's been really it's been a really good example way guys can support each other through stuff like this and I was the best Chris Thank. You appreciate that man. There goes out the Great Seth Payne. Appearance by Seth. Nailed. It. Nailed it. All right. But Hey, let's check in before. We get to Thursday night football on some covid nineteen stuff. You know I want to the audience know that I really wanted to put together some type of Covid nineteen drop to get us into these conversations but then I, feel like, I'll. I'll have some. Keyboard warriors saying being insensitive. So I'm not so that that's a that's a sign of maturity from the old Zinser So we just get straight into the cove nineteen talk here. We'll start with those keeping score on Dan's maturity. That's that's that's a little item for you to add to the notebook right there because he titans no positive covid nineteen on Tuesday Mike Gabel announced An, team could return to the practice facility on Wednesday. Even though the titans have not yet been cleared to go back into the building the head coach hopes that they'll get approval by Wednesday morning. In case you haven't tracked closely a total of twenty titans players and other staff members. Have tested positive for the coronavirus in the past. Nine days I believe the NFL announced last week, the Titans steelers game was going to be pushed October. Twenty Fifth Tennessee is scheduled to play the bills in week five and teams to undefeated teams, and that's not going to be a slam dunk either we'll see how this progresses but even if everything goes well from here, they're gonNA missing a bunch of players mark against the bills in a big game with big conference of Ramifications. It's still remains the story where every time you open twitter that you're wondering what the newest will be what what update. There will be an for me again, I point to the game last night. The Patriots chiefs game that I I just don't view i. don't will never really view this as a season equal to any other if if that stuff's going to happen that completely. I totally understand you on one side of that. But like what is the alternative there? I'm not saying there's an alternative, it's just that they could have posed. Now, doubt. WITTILY, in that case, we couldn't. Risk Yeah they were taking a risk. Right. You're your alternatives. All happened before the season right the alternative to add a couple of buys to put a little more elasticity in the schedule of those play. Yeah. You could have done that before the season at this point it it's got what it is. You're just banging on buys and hoping like the postponements and the delays that would normally mirror like a hurricane season except this is a hurricane season where hurricanes can literally spun up at any point in any state in the union and you just gotTa Kinda hope and that's where we are. And in other cove nineteen news. Found this to be very interesting that the NFL is. You. Know trying to control this and a control uncontrollable situation and they call it. There's a memo that. That got released to the media. the next red complacency is our shared opponent is coming from. The NFL. On this idea that, hey, if you're not going to listen to us when we find you or threatened draft picks will how about this if you if you're acting a knucklehead is a team like the raiders doing that Charity Event and going mask lists and all that or again the raiders having someone unauthorized unauthorized in their locker room after a game if you're GonNa do that kind of stuff. You could forfeit a game. and. That is something that's in play I think to if if it does imagine how how that would be it's you wouldn't a year ago. It'd be unthinkable that something could happen. But if there's another big outbreak and there becomes a clear line of how this started, you wonder if the NFL ever actually act on that in awarding who nothing win to a team, which is how it works. Technically. you said it well in the. In one of our Texas threads Dan like trying to set up guard rails or these rules. For something that it it's impossible to for like they WANNA, set up the rules but. I struggle with them sometimes, of course, they have to do this and it's positive that they're doing this in terms of the finding and masks and everything but. The NFL's the one that decided to play that Titans Vikings game with two people who at least more than two but including Jeffrey Simmons by the way who was a big star for for Tennessee nouns playing really well who who ended up testing. Positive In they had an outbreak and and so. I think playing that game you could argue being in a plane together contributed to that WHO's getting fine for that you now. Who? It's it's tough because of course, you have to have rules and I've heard the doctor Sills who's in charge of it speak really well on this. But I find it confusing to when you're you're finding these players for masks in the coaches for mastering the game but it's all good to be. You know growing up and hugging like arms around each other without mass after the game like. So what's like what's the difference? It's just there's no like maybe there's no right answer like, but it's just it's a little. It's a little confusing like I I appreciated ballot check not shaking Andy Reid Tan last night. That's the. I'm going to give you my elbow. lost. These known for the right now I mean it gave them. It gave him. He gave him the I'm just saying it's a little confusing because like The you're getting fined for the mass at this event but your, but it's all good to be like there was literally a Conga line. Of Young chargers players in not one of them was a charges players I recognize they're all like young practice squad guys waiting to give Tom Brady a massive. Fifteen of them. And so. How is that different than the charity event and they decided to play this patriots game knowing that there are at least with some risks that they're increasing the spread of it like and hopefully they avoid that and it looks like they are but I don't know there's there's no right answers I'm just I'm Ram. Aaj Iso for cutting mark off in the previous talk I've got to. Know more cutting mark do you have something a no I think it's all been Said said well. I think it is. A greater issue I mentioned like it's similar to if you go out to eat in a restaurant, how you must wear the mask when you're walking into the restaurant or are you going to the restroom you sit down at your table and you're allowed to take the mask off and you play by the rules because everybody wants to kind of get through this together. But then if you take a step back like are we actually being any safer? Are we or is this really working but you just do it because we don't know what else to do as a as a society it's it's a man that's uncertain times it really is. Right. Button I want to hear your opinion On. Safety I like you said we don't know, right? We don't know maybe like Safety Theater wearing the masks being in certain places with mass being in certain places without masks but ultimately. We don't know and if you if you have your mouse gone and you're around people that you don't know but you should write that you're doing the right thing because you know what you can control when you're around your team. I guess you're in Tom Brady circumstance in your around guys who have cleared the protocol. And made it to the point where they're on the field. Then perhaps you can tap them up a little more safely than going going out the Harris Teeter you know kissing ladies on the cheek that would probably be a bad thing more if you're in a club situation like the raiders and you're just you're out there like when I'm watching College Football Games and I see guys score touchdowns and their their father, a kids in the stands like yeah. No. Don't do that. You have to kind of be aware of the circumstances that you're currently in. and Go with the best practices there because you know we we don't know. It's like, Hey, follow the circumstances you know do your part, and then you've got a president that's like it doesn't matter I. Made It. Are you? GonNa, make it to so. You just do. What you think is best in that particular moment in the League has its plan, and so you know I, it makes us the following plan. The raiders are doing the most raiders e thing the season in response to cove nineteen also, and sometimes we celebrate the raiders for being kind of their own organization. But like I, Dunno between Gruden not wearing the mask getting the fine and then still not wearing the mask the guy in the locker room. And they made it. About it so gruden apparently had a pretty rough case of Cova that you. He didn't tell anyone at they didn't tell the media at the time but. Partly inspired by that, they made t shirts they made it part of their whole camp that they were going to dominate the disease I. think that was the t shirt was like dominate the virus and they all have dominate the virus shirt. So I don't know there's another another game plan failure for the. Raiders. Right let's move onto Thursday night football. By the way it's Thursday night football because colleen gang, the do such great work on the pre post and halftime show but did they ever replace Priyanka? Is there a Thursday night football? Wrong? They did like seven years ago Dan they got rid of pre bianca lasted one year yet. But like how did you mean like a? New interracial. What's the new song? Yeah. was there was some sort of like insane. Body graphical sought ever while did for a while they did is right. They were placed. There was something forgettable. Could be wrong but I think they might maybe after that one didn't work either they just went to no song which is. There a song. Now I know beyond his for you think. Colleen that would work I. Think they. They added us a little bonus, Joe and troy. Instead of the song because like. Aware during the during the run outright I. It's like you'd have all this pomp and circumstance and there's a song. About. Here's Brian Hoyer running out on Thursday night. Brian. This game as a Fox game because now suddenly we got the bears big market there three and one we got Tom Brady. It's like once it's back on Fox, they start they start giving the better opponents unfold. So here we are bucks bears at soldier field obviously. week did not go to plan for the bears who were three. Now they had nick foles locked and loaded as the starter, and then they they lay total egg on offense and that was a if you've got a chance to watch that game a very rough loss. look for the offense nineteen to eleven was the final in that game a late touchdown to make it look respectable full still the quarterback and Claybon will start with the bucks though because I might take away from Sunday's win. By the bucks over the chargers was like. If we needed definitive proof that this is not Joe Nemeth on the rams this Johnny United on the chargers we got it in Tampa on Sunday because if you if you surround forty-three-year-old Tom Brady with a strong enough insulin in. He will light you up like a star quarterback. He can still be that guy into to me that raise the ceiling for this whole team. Yeah. The circumstances were good. The circumstances are getting worse that was the chargers team. That's honestly Kinda beat up. On defense and then Oj, Howard, has the Achilles injury. Where we know we're not getting we're. Definitely not getting pink Gronk. Are. Or. Even getting seventy, five percent GRONK. And so. Those circumstances I do believe her or changing he's not going to have like. In the preseason there was there was all this talk in jd was predicting the fifty five sixty touchdowns for Tom Brady. We know that that's kind of like. All that stuff. These fifty five caps downtown. But we saw how it can look you know Mike Evans limping down the field and still catching touchdowns. But they lose another weapons and you just of wonder at what point is it going to break I? Think we'RE GONNA learn a lot on Thursday with the way that the bears can play defense as to how sustainable this is. But but yeah, he's he's not not dust. Some other guys are I mean I think you have to wonder who is. Who the bears are going to be playing defense against because Chris Godwin. Leonard fournette sounds like he's not GonNa play Mike. Evans is banged up Scotty Miller's banged up Justice Watson that's the force top wide receivers are not healthy and it's not even the the list goes on Miller and finished the game I. Think an Evan. So I didn't in crowder GONNA play. Practicing. Just that it's a short week. So do you go Jay? Coming. Not Coming back. But they put to the point on Brady I. Mean you know PF tracks these big money throws and these had three of them in every game this season and he had. Five of them in the last one and it's like the dudes like. Tom Brady like arm strength might not be what it was and all this other stuff but it's fine. He's working in this offense. Yeah, he is. He's I did it again there mark it against. Just the it's just a Rosenthal curse I, notice it at the dinner table. I have been saying that. Brady's arm wasn't the problem I thought that last that he they had problems and he had problems in their offense at problems but his arm strength wasn't you never had the these strongest arm and right now he's he's hitting deep shots as much as anyone and I think his arm strength is from. The yet physically, he looks as good as you could hope, I don't think the offense has been awesome for a complete game yet in fact, they've very consistently looked very good for a half an sort of terrible for a half I needed that last week. But that the great for half was like next level. Bruce Arians, bombs away. Really Fun to watch I think gronk having that play a bigger role is a problem. So, we'll see 'cause they don't really have a guy to replace OJ Howard. That's what Bruce Arians said but you said I think this bears defense is competent. They're well coached with Chuck Pagano I. Think they're easily the toughest matchup. That Tampere has had the problem is it's the toughest matchup bears often has had to i. think even the fact that I know they played the colts I think this bucks defense would be my pick as the toughest one go against the chargers got hit some shots last week and in that can happen but I love this bucks defense especially, how many bullets is they're going to send nick foles and see what he can do. I just want to tell you one thing is. Driving me nuts about the bears. Matt. Nagy who feels like the Anti Matla Florida me in many ways he had a quote after the last game sane allowing nineteen points is enough for us to win a football game. This has been a theme for us. That's their theme just allow nineteen points in a win. Here's the problem they haven't. They've scored under twenty points and eleven of their past twenty games in there's an eighty two percent win rate for teams in that situation where your. Defense allows nineteen or fewer. The bears have lost four of those games because they can't they're not. They're not able on the other side of the ball to take advantage of what their defense is given them I. Think they missed the Rico and a lot I think they will like the the bears have a disease which has traveled around the League and I love I love quarter L. Patterson as a player Sorta but they have caught the too much quarter L. Patterson disease every team. That he goes on at some point, they become convinced he should be a huge part of their offense and that's always his last season with the team like the he is one of the best special teams of the last twenty years and he's a nice gadget player. But like at the moment where he becomes an integral part of the offense, the offense like it did in new, England and Minnesota, and before then it falls apart they've got the too much quarter outlets ceiling like Ted, ginn. Well, he's the ceiling, his first year with the team and then it then it. Is Unreal. Special. Teams player literally. One of the best of the last fifteen years that should get like three touches a game, and that's that's his floors Greg Rosenthal calling him the literal disease. Sorry. It's funny. It's too bad because he's a fun guy to watch to. But at some point, every coach thinks like they're going to unlock the quarter L. Patterson net the seven previous pretty good offensive coordinators haven't unlocked and it never happens you. You had the bucks short handed on a short week. losing to the bears? Yes or no? No I don't believe in the bears at all just checking. With you Claybon I actually do believe in the bears this game and it may be a wild theory but we've seen the way that things have fallen out in Philadelphia and the way. Frank Reich. Talked about Nick Foles last week it was kind of that. Nick foles was this broken quarterback Frank Reich came in him. And now he comes into a game where he's coaching against him and he It. Seemed like. If. Anybody knows nick foles is limitations it was gonna be the head coach of the Annapolis. Colts and I do expect Nick foles and Matt Negative. Competent offense even against maybe a defense. That's better. Some areas in Tampa Bay. But I I think you know prompt nick foles as. Present some some difficult we. In the gang well, it's devers foles come on I. Mean That's What I believe is the best super bowl performance by quarterback in NFL history and no one wants to give it to foles. They like pretend that he was lucky. Those throws were not lucky. They were like seven or eight of the greatest throws that you'll ever see into tight coverage I'm with you. I think the bears are too big and underdog there a sizable underdog in this game and I think I think it'll be tight I mean put it this way I think fulls outplayed Philip rivers in that game I don't think was the worst player ever, but they just don't have a lot going on a little bit of. Take I mean you got Phil Simms and twenty one you got Joe. Montana's superbowls get Steve Young against the chargers. These were all amazing game. So I just want to put some tight windows forty one points back and forth the beating Tom Brady at five hundred yards it was more like the. We aren't even talking about Nichols catching the ball in that game which was part of the story to. Definitely cut in what are the cut into a leader gave them a slight lead going into halftime that game? What was it again? I'm not getting into. Matinee. Mitchell trubisky every single game in brick bring nick foles in with about two minutes to go. In the first quarter, then you get the nick foles he's probably been a little annoyed that he's not starting. Then you get you know he's unhinged this starting Nick foles business is a disaster I. Don't start bring a minute later. All. Right. Good stuff. CHECK IT OUT WATCH COLLEEN NFL network back. Keep the dial in. NFL. Network you can go to Fox if you want. But why would you watch claybon fantasy live three times a week I saw him Hosting like a hard pivot to billow. Bright. Thank Bill O'Brien firing coverage just ended with like somber tone that rappaport and then they it's like, Hey, I'm patrick clue. So what's the fantasy impact of Bill O'Brien? Versatile Greg We all this fun stuff ran and then it's like Oh. Yeah. Bill of rights dead now. Let's do like. Career top of. I like Ian, rapoport like sad, serious voice. and. That's what's happening right now. that. Cleland. You. Get Serious Walter Cronkite. Right. Thank you, Patrick for joining us one thing on a serious note to the show. Really. Sad news for. Everyone connected to Jason Feller. is a NFL DOT COM guy from the very beginning He was part of the team that relaunched NFL DOT com and the late two thousands, and then was there through the early period of mark and I being there and it was always such a good dude. He passed away yesterday from cancer it was along for your battle. As you know pretty crushing he's he's got a wife and two young children. So we lost feller far too soon, and just to let everyone know nick could check it out on our. Social accounts but and I can't even imagine how. How you're able to do this thing but feller before he passed away was involved with starting up, go fund me to help pay for the funeral costs and the mounting medical bills aren't covered by insurance for his family so if you want to. Help out somebody market no you have thoughts on this too who was a really special guy who's gone too soon Go check out a social and hit the link and anything you could give to help get toward their goal would be a great. Jason was he was there when we first arrived back then you know you know Claybon, you see the NFL network newsroom today, you're probably WanNa want people in there, but it's massive. It's big long room in that building by the way used to be a call center we can talk about that another time but we're not got there. It was very small right Dan I mean and they broke down walls and stuff, but it was just the news desk of about. Ten twelve people, tops, I mean the whole thing and I came in there I couldn't have been more raw in Jason Fellow was a sports nut like he reminds me of Greg little bit where like we'd be like in the middle of a dense day of NFL action he'd be watching like tennis game. From like central Japan and like a bowling thing and he's all fired up about three sports at the same time and I would give him my copy occasionally is still figuring out what the hell was going on and he'd read it and like he come back and say all right, it's finals this line what the hell is this line this does not belong in a spin a story it was like Whoa I mean he would teach you but he was an awesome kind wonderful guy and Dan I know that you battled him on the basketball court amuse a passionate individual. He will be missed. So check that out again at social if you can even a little can go a long way. All right recipes Jason Taylor.

FTP Ep. # 190: NFL Wildcard Weekend Recap

"Welcome to the fantasy throwdown. podcast bringing you the latest sports news fantasy analysis and opinions. Don't forget the hot takes and have a sports show with takes these days. What about hotcakes hotcakes? Now here's your host. Reynier jump into things dwayne calendar. What a slate of games for NFL wild card weekend? Let's get right down to it because we we had. We had some surprises. Go Down Lot. Let's start off with The the key story of today so so obviously The Sunday games just wrapped up the Minnesota Vikings. pull off the upset on the saints in overtime again with. Pass it a speech. That was called. I you you know. I laugh but I shouldn't because essentially we just had the NFL basically give the Fu to a team on national television. And we're just all Kinda numb to it But the Minnesota Vikings have beat the New Orleans Saints Today and yes there was all its passenger fares on car. Rudolph that the NFL refused to actually call. I don't know what else you could say about that. Other than it. You know you I what else can you say. It is absurd but that is actually in fact what happened but the story of this game was the fact that drew brees was for all intensive purposes. below oh average. NFL QB in this game. He couldn't release the ball when he wanted to. He had difficult to even the stat. Outline doesn't look awful. He was twenty six thirty three but total yardage was to renate like literally it was a bunch of dump off passes and and then yards after catch by his receivers. The problem is You know the Vikings did slow down. Michael Thomas Micheal. Thomas was this only seven catches for seventy yards and for most of the game. He only had eight targets. Drew brees just had difficulty getting Michael Thomas the football he was not able to target Michael Thomas nearly as much as he as he should have but he was getting pressure up the Middle Lindvall. Joseph did his the job up the middle for the Vikings but drew brees again. And this is what I've been talking about when it comes into situations where he just has these flat games. The reaction time is so much slower than it needs to be that it just causes issues you know there was a key fumble in the fourth quarter that the saints almost didn't even get this game. Ot from drew brees was so bad. I mean the saints had rally from ten points down to fourth quarter just to get into overtime. It was twenty to ten. You know Kirk cousins makes a beautiful throw in overtime but kirk cousins also disappeared for vast stretches at the second half to You know I as much as a People are GONNA be singing. The praises of Kirk cousins. You know the truth of the matter is is that this victory. He goes to the Vikings defense because they consistently bottled up the saints to the extent that the saints had to turn the taste them hill to beat. They're running and passing attack. They could bleed a fifty yard pass and ran for fifty yards and was by far the leading rusher of afford saints because Alvin Kamara might as well have been invisible. Despite the fact that he had eight catches he only got thirty four yards receiving and he ran for twenty one yards on seven carries Alvin. Kamara was essentially drew. BREES is dump off pass and Camara couldn't get anything going today. I Know Camara has to be hurt or just utterly frustrated because it was a complete and utter non factor today and I had my concerns about Kamara to begin with. I can't say them surprise. The problem is is that you know. Maybe the saints should have signed dirty O'Brien because the issue that I had with this esteem was if Micheal. Thomas got shut down which. I didn't see happening with the Vikings and their banged up secondary My concern was. Where's his office coming from? Because it you know I don't think drew brees can elevate these guys anymore. And that's exactly what happened. The saints offense completely Lee stalled and Sean Payton had to get so desperate to bring in some hill to reinvigorate the offense. There were points in that game today. I honestly thought Teddy Bridgewater should've been warmed up and ready to go now Sean. Payton can't do that. Drew brees and he will get crushed at the saints lost. Anyway and drew brees was benched benched in favor of Teddy Bridgewater but the saints needed something and eternal tastes meal to run. Some gadget plays and it add to his credit tesa mill panned and out. But that's the problem. It took so long for the saints to acknowledge that this was not going to work the way they were going and to do it in the fourth quarter. It was a little too little too late because Dow McCook at that point had established running attack for the Vikings and they played ball. Control Offense The remainder of the game now when it came to overtime then they at least turn rates loose again on cousins and he completed a beautiful rainbow. Throw to Adam feeling that you know folks are GonNa Complain and say Oh the. DB's should do a better job at no nonsense when you highpoint a ball that high and you're in the superdome staring up into light that has the hardest ball and you'll see you'll see it on a Sports Center and all the highlight shows. Afterwards it is the hardest ball for defensive back as a pay because again you're running full sprint looking over your shoulder trying to high point a ball in the lights when this receiver knows where the ball is to me. There's only a handful of guys that I would even trust to be able to make a play on a ball that type and more than that. The receiver still going to win that match up. The reason why it doesn't happen all that often is that you actually as a QB more difficult throws yet to make because again then you have the perfect touch on it and not a lot of QB's actually have the capabilities to do so. There's only handful guys that in the League that asks you can make that throw and drew brees can't make that throw anymore. There are a couple other guys in the league that people consider to be Ille- QB's that I know can't make that throw. Oh so you gotta give Kirk cousins credit words do but the the final play of the game calvert it off catches a fade route in the end zone. Ed clearly shows off. Listen the NFL will has had it in for the saints for quite some time. Now the saints fans are convinced that has to do with bountygate you know if the saints the states caused the video replay review rule to come into effect and the fact that the NFL refused to even review. The play speaks speaks volumes. I mean I. I'm sure I'll river on is going to say some nonsense that they reviewed it in real time. It didn't think they get rose to the level of a pass. Ferrets which is by like I gotTa Spit. You can actually say but but if you actually did a clip reel of all the offense pass. Interference calls that were called at and that play that play would be front and center as is supposed to be called passenger ferrets the NFL could say whatever they want. They do. have an issue with the saints. They've stuck to and they're hoping that the national media it doesn't pay that close attention to it. You know. Honestly it's one of those where yeah we the saints have a gripe but they didn't lose the game because of that call. They put themselves in a position to lose that game. The Dudack Hall. Because they couldn't get their act together and drew brees was absolutely all kinds of awful today. There's no if ands or buts about it. All right moving on Let's let's talk. I mean I could talk about the Seahawks Eagles game but I mean let's be honest. Is that this game was over the moment Judean clowney landing on Carson Wentz said because if you thought for a second that Josh mccown was going to lead the eagles to a win win over the Seahawks I got a bridge to sell you. You know I thought that once was going to return to his game but once they once they pull them back into the locker room in the news started circulating that they pulled hold wants his wife debris bring her to the lock Romera. You knew he was done for today. We'll concussion and for for anyone that would suggest that Carson Wentz was trying to tap out of the game urine idiot. There's no way he's GonNa play through the route that second half of the season to get the eagles into the plants because the eagles were basically done Let's remember the eagles were done and they ran the table to get into into the playoffs as bad as the NFC east was give them. Credit were credit's due. He's GonNa tap out unless he suffered a concussion and the medical doctors because remember Was the new concussion. Protocols there are independent independent medical evaluators looking at these players. They determine that he suffered a severe concussion. There's no way they can allow him back into the game. That that that. That's the longest Jordan it I mean the the NFL putting these measures in place for player safety. And this is the world we live in would carson wentz probably put himself back in the game absolutely. But there's no way he was going to get medically cleared and once that happened. The Eagles were done because visit with as many as they had. Losing your starting quarterback to to boot I don't care how lacklustre Seattle played in this game. They were going to win that game. No no matter what and Seattle knew it. I mean I. It's it's really that simple so you're gonNA get a match up with Seattle in Green Bay and if decay metcalf puts on a performance today that Against the packers next week the sea hawks are GonNa Win de Que. Metcalf had seven catches for one hundred sixty yards vertical threat all game long. The packers packers defense is susceptible to the deep ball. So I know. Russell Wilson can you can flip it out there with the best of all I you know I I'm convinced that The Seattle rushing attack will not do anything unless it's Russell's at scrambling and they say they're gonNA give more carries to marshawn lynch moving forward. I mean between Travis homer marshawn lynch they combined for seventeen carries in one thousand nine yards. Yeah the I'll say that again between marshawn Lynch and Travis homer they combined for seven into Carey's nineteen yards. That's right back several googlers yards. Well Hey had a touchdown that was a one yard. Run it I I mean I don't know what else do you want me to say. It is that's what it is. This was an ugly ugly ugly ugly fantasy slate of games for Sunday. Ed had it wasn't all that pretty Saturday. We'll I'm also seeing stories on twitter that there. There's a allegations of collusion for the person. Could we just won the millionaire maker on draft gangs. This should be fun but Anyway for I get Furhter furhter distracted. Yeah the seahawks did what they needed to do. They want seventeen nine. It was not a pretty game you're not going to be watching this on. NFL films ten years from now. This was an ugly game. Let's move on so going back back to the Saturday games. You had the taxes and the bills and oh man Bill O'Brien bill. Bill bill if it wasn't for the Shawn Watson Bill O'Brien would have been fired years ago. The Shawn Watson continues to save. They've built O'Brien's job and I should say that I'm lucky that the shell wants to keep saving Bill O'Brien job because I am utterly convinced that the way the giants had coaching searches going right now. That bill I would be the front runner to become the next head coach of the giants if he he got fired after if they had lost his game and he got fired point blank. The bills should have won this game. Handily y Josh Allen is throwing so many frigging passes is like an utter mystery to me. I can't the life of me figure out why josh out is throwing so many passes. It didn't make any sense it I mean T- droopy told it screwed everything up because now you've got a situation where Josh Allen is GonNa be remembered for all the screw up see add add abby a.k.a to create this has created more questions about the bills quarterback situation boo before. They say whatever they want. Now I have legitimate. Hamic doubts that Josh out is going to be a franchise. QB Basov of how this playoff game went so to recap the bills. Were up sixteen. Nothing in the third quarter. Were in complete control this game. The shouted Watson leads a tremendous comeback with minimal. Run gain the Shawn Watson. Was the leading rusher first team. He had fourteen carries for fifty five yards. Carl's I'd had forty eight yards on sixteen carries. So yeah that yes. That is a three three yards three yards per carry average and duke. John had one gadget. Play that accounted for is thirty eight yards rushing but this was Shawn Watson carrying his team. He was able to finally get something. Something going with the Andrew Hopkins. I mean the show watch it was completing passes through multiple receivers just trying to get something going but my biggest gripe gripe with the bills is the fact that Devon Single Terry did not get any touches in the second half they needed to encourage moments they were giving carries the Frank Gore. I mean I love Free Corps. Frank Gore is not your number one running back. There's a reason why Devon single terry took over the primary running back duties at the close of the year. Why is Frank Gore? Stealing cares from David every single terry and in critical situations when you're in the red zone. The the bills lost this game in large part due to Josh Allen and critical a cool mismanagement by Sean McDermott. When they're throwing when they should be running in the red zone when the running it they're giving it to Frank Gore said of David but single Terry? The bills had chance after chance to put this game away against the texts and kept ended up having to settle for three point. It was infuriating watching this game. The Texas had no business winning this game. They were thoroughly outplayed. They a SEC Watson seven times people. I can't be any clearer to net. The shot wants. It was running fighting for his life. It's still got sacked seven times. Barda reason why you scrambling so much is because he he had to. The bills are honest. oddest tail the entire game but Josh Allen and his decision making oh boy I mean where do we start taking making multiple sacks to put yourself out of field goal range when all you need is a field goal. I've read Josh Allen all like the bills had to scramble to tie this game up to get into overtime. Josh Allen took multiple sacks knocked them out of feel great and they still had at the defense still had to bail them out again to get the ball back to even send this over time but Josh Allen even in overtime tries laterally the football because he lost track of the clock no no one understands the decision. Making that Josh Allen underwent in this game and again one of my descriptions for Josh Allen was he's a couple of bad decisions away for being Blake Bortles with inexplicable turnovers. That you cannot explain and I have no idea how you can feel good about Josh Josh Allen and his performance when his his his meltdowns are just you know. There's I mean there's the reason why. His nickname is Wyoming Josh. Because he makes tries to make these cowboy plays and just makes inexplicable turnovers hours. Whether it's just a terrible pick fumble taken aback attack. We does need to lie. There were just so many so many poor choices that everyone on twitter you can see is having to save reaction of what the hell is this guy doing. It is one of the most inexplicable things you'll see and again as I said. I have deep reservations Asians about Josh Allen as a franchise. QB This bills. And this is the problem when you invest in and I said this giants fans all the time when you have big question marks about qb and you array kind of get yourself to the sage of yeah. We're just GONNA have to try to make it work. It's almost always a recipe for failure. I'm just saying it. You know. Maybe maybe he learns a big lesson for this but I I don't know I just don't know. Because because even Brett Farve as much as people say talk about Brett Farve Brett farve decision-making never improve throughout his entire career. His is throwing ability is what salvaged him. Josh is not Brett Farve so I I just I don't know I really don't I don't know how how that could even happen. But the play the game and everyone's going to talking about this for years to come you've got you've got the third and eighteen gene. Well well there to place I I should say everyone's GonNa talk about Shown walks and breaking to sat. Ah like he had you sacked by two separate guys. It's still found a way to break out of it. Spin out of the tackles of both players and and And Find Find Taiwan Jones wide open but even earlier in the drive third down. Eighteen and a Watson was able to find Duke. Johnson listen in space because the bills linebackers and coverage dropback too deep in coverage and gave enough space for Johnson into wiggles way to find the. I doubt that play killed the bills. I mean outside of Shawn John Watson Spinning out of Two tacklers To to make the big pass play the set up the winning score again that they're down in eighteen in overtime. That is that that's one that's going to haunt. Ah The bills coaching staff for quite some time amongst all the other decisions that they made a as I said the bills had no excuse of losing this game but they did and the curse continues according to bills fans because they still have not won a playoff game in the. Yeah the ninety five they have not won a a playoff game since one thousand ninety five the street continues all all right moving on and I'll be the one admit it. I did not think that titans with a one trick pony and just running Here I mean. Derrick Henry is a man child I I mean just an absolute monster Amana amongst boys. Listen I did not see Derrick Henry being able to just smash smash and Smash Smash at smash the Patriots Away. Did I said he needed a buck. Fifty to have a chance beat the Patriots. He ran ran for one hundred and eighty two yards on thirty four carries. I mean that's the game folks. The New England England offense couldn't get anything going I thought that The patch will be able to turn it into a James White game throw a bunch of passes underneath if two men and white but the truth of the matter is is that the titans defense was ready to tackle. They made a bunch of tackles and just I can't make it. Your Dad do. England ended up being short on number replace and the problem. Is that even when Tom Brady had type confined anyone open. You Know Tom Brady was clearly frustrated. That entire game and the titans just warm down. I mean it was a thirteen game but man that game felt like it was a two touchdown deficit for the past because it just this continually felt as though they were going through an uphill climb and even at halftime. When it's fourteen thirteen tightens my dad? And I are talking through this game and I'm saying that the PATS ARE GONNA lose this game at halftime in a game of a one point. Game in Foxboro borough. I thought the paths. Were going to lose this. Unless they had some lucky break or turnover to turn the tide and it never came because it just looked as as though Derrick Henry was going to have his way and there was nothing the path we're going to be able to do about it and that's literally what happened. It was a slow Methodical death for the Patriots and all of America was it seemed like everyone on twitter was celebrating the fact that the pats were losing and eventually lost. The one moment that I think signifies this game more than anything else was with about six minutes ago. I'm Mike Gabel coach of the titans employed time wasting strategy. That Bill Belichick has used many times in the past where sure it's a running clock until it hits the five minute mark of the game and he was initially deliberately having delay of game penalties audit team just so he could run the clock down to under five minutes. Because it's a running clock Tuck it will even with a penalty it will keep going bill belichick knowing the rule and that he can't do anything to stop. It is turned to the referee asking. How's that legal? What he knows that he's one of the people who taught it to rebel because he right rebel saw bell check us that so many times against other teams when he played for him With the Patriots so to me that was one of my favorite moments because it was one of the sides were Belgium knew he was in trouble and had no other recourse but to complain to the referee because he had no other way of getting out of it. So you know this was just a very interesting game to say the least I I will say that you you know. It's almost a certainty. In my opinion that Brady's done in New England I think that unless Belgian spellcheck loses the power battle to Brady once again I think bell checks going to his way and not bring back. Tom Brady It depends on what of Robert Kraft wants to do. I know Crafoord Brady comeback. I'm not your braiding wants to come back and I'm very sure sure that doesn't want Brady back. So when you've got two out of three is not wanting to make it work out and only one guy there to try to play peacemaker to make both sides agree. I just think that this is an awkward awkward situation and I think this probably the end of time bringing New England. I don't think Brady's retiring probably should retire. Because I don't think the grass is greener stops. Where Tom Brady could go Post pats I mean the chargers. Maybe the colts. I just don't see a ton of landing spots that are you gotta give him much better opportunity to super bowl than what he currently has his New England That's the problem given his skill set at this point point and what he needs Yeah the past and the the playmaker Bayden absolutely needed Antonio Brown. Yeah I mean they can say whatever they want. They absolutely needed Antonio Brown. And I you know I wasn't checked whatever Antonio Brown's sightings last night but yeah th there's no question that the Patriots needed Antonio Brown that game to to open up the top of the defense so that's all aw that there was for. NFL Wall Card weekend. I took an absolute bloodbath in terms of some of the pigs because I I was heavy on Michael Thomas in draft gigs and that was an unmitigated disaster while I did play Josh Allen and again this is not what I think of Jesse Allen as a QB. It's more along. The lines of Jesse Allen was cheap and he runs around also You get a nice floor of points From the quarterback position. This is just an ugly week unless you stack your lineups With Derrick Henry Endow Alvin Cook You weren't going very far Now I'm seeing something on twitter that the winner of love the draftkings milly maker was a former contested on the bachelor but now of seeing that their stories of collusion because is She maxed out the full one hundred and fifty entries in the Mili- maker tournament which at is a pretty petty ready. Because you're you're talking about a twenty five dollar tree and you know by math that puts you literally as uh you know four grand and entries. Yeah well thirty seven fifteen entries but that should be interesting if they could actually prove that She she colluded in that she and her husband and maxed out the entry at three hundred entries with a unique lineups as opposed to A- as opposed to the usual cap of one hundred fifty. Yeah that's GONNA cause some issues but that's all I got for now you now interesting. NFL Kerr weekend. You got some interesting game setup because you got Minnesota Played San Francisco. You've got Tennessee traveling to Baltimore. Their candidate should actually have a good day running against the Ravens defense. And you know the Ravens are going to run the football ball so that should be very quick game for Saturday night. Live that that's GonNa be a lot of running clock situations I I echina- ready for see that happening yet. You got the Texans traveling to Kansas City. Will Andy Reid shoot himself in the foot yet again in the postseason because we know bill. Brian will But it will be. Patrick behoves and shot Watson and I will be excited to see that matchup and the nightcap will be Seattle traveling to Lambofield the play the packers and again. I'm not a fan of the packers this year. But this is the packers best chance of getting Aaron Rodgers to Super Bowl because the way somebody's at teams have panned out. You know if Seattle upset San Francisco I think Green Bay advantage over Seattle. Now if if I'LL SAY SEATTLE I. I mean if Minnesota upset San Francisco. I think Green Bay has a has a great shot against the Vikings because they just have a a mind lock on the a some type of mental block on the Vikings. Vikings can't play well against the packers in any situation. It seems But you know we're GONNA see how these games go but that's all I got for now. aggregrate night folks and we'll catch up sometime next week.

GSMC Sports Podcast Episode 624: Thank Goodness For NFL Free Agency,What Was Bill O'Brien Thinking, and NBA Coronavirus Update

"This is your ultimate stopper. Everything sports the Golden state media concepts sports podcast. Should I say more from the NFL MLB THE NBA MMA? It's all in here. The golden state media concepts sports podcast. Listen then now welcome back. Mcc sports our cast presented by the MC podcast network mining's displayed. And before. I guess already today when Mitch remind you guys as always if you haven't already to subscribe to the podcast Michou Nemesis Macias on tap when every drop our latest staff If you could as well as gifts a five star rating righteousness view would be very appreciated laussucq. Which I don't like we did. You can prove all that fun stuff and also if you on social media more social you can reach out to us. Their twitter instagram facebook. You can talk and chat we can discuss. We can debate all that fun stuff and thank you very very much to the NFL because it was looking very dry out there out here in these four streets. I mean I've seen as we've discussed many times. Obviously you guys all know at this point. Basically sports cancelled Duda current I do to the corona virus covert Nineteen Most people can't even leave their house depending on where you live. I mean well you can maybe leave your house but then all of those got curfews and all that stuff so you thought depends on where you're living where you're from or no certain. Cities is more strict than others at this point in time but Like I said everything's still kind of a work in progress with this country because it doesn't seem like we as a people were properly prepared to do something like this and So we are in the midst of that. We are wondering where we're going to get our sports phil from and luckily for us. Nfl Free Agency decide to come through and give us enough content to last a week and like the first few days you mean there are so many different things so many different people that are signed they got traded. That are Greg I resigned. That made me yourselves out there Kanat everybody's inside his those couple Big Names to be signed at this point but I mean name. Everyone was thinking talking about discussing wondering where he had ended. Up has unofficially officially made his decision. And that being none other than one. Tom Brady Based on everything we Based on everything Different reporters. I've heard analyses. Not Official yet. Because nothing can technically be official until Wednesday. I guess when you hear this though a lot of stuff up in the air because like the whole physical stuff and that might then put some these deals Khanda sword or is on these trays connoisseur on the shell for the time being like they may be announced they may not be like officially gone through Just because these guys can't really travel yet. These guys can't really meet with team. Doctors not safe for that yet. So technically These deals are still kind of pending. If you will. But they're agreed to more or less so This one is not at that level yet. Just because The boxer Tom Brady Officially said that this is where he's going. But but missus game earlier that he was leaving the Patriots And then I was never a couple of places that people are talking about. Maybe the chargers though seemed like the charges kind of backed off the bucks it'd be talked about. Were an option. Maybe the raiders but they signed Mary owner not necessarily to be their starter but these signed him panthers in theory if they were going to trade Cam which sounds like they might do. We'll talk about that But they went outside and Teddy. So is that Ozzy again could always go back to Patriots But yeah the bucks seemed like an option. Just because I don't know how tied to Jameis Winston Bruce Ames was now see. We know now that he really wasn't tied to him at all But yes I mean obviously coming off the season that James had were again a lot of yards two touchdowns also through ladder receptions and. It's hard to win games when you turn the ball over that much. A colt an a random but that cult another team. That people thought Tom Brady could go to. And they have their new quarterback which again we'll get to in a second but it seemed like Like I said Bruce. Arians didn't give him executive glowing review when the season ended. So you thought it was a chance that that they move on different direction and obviously when Tom Brady Becomes available. You at least have to listen or not necessarily listen to you. We have to pursue and that is what they decided to do. They being the bucks obviously like I said it's not official yet but it all tends to the sounds like Tom Brady will be Buchan. Apparently are GONNA unveil New Jersey's that'd be kind of cool is. He was the one tenth album. I don't know if that's what they're planning is already. But if it's not Dan but that's what you guys should do Exhaust you're going into a completely new era of Bucks football though I'm going to get an stumbling at the end of his career so will not exactly Disney actually prime. Tom Brady but against the Tom Brady still arguably go. Depending on who you ask. was argue. I don't WanNa say biggest the free agent market in terms of quarterbacks. But he's definitely one of them so again this is this is. This is not some little a pretty deal. Everyone was Kinda wondering where he was going to end up. And obviously we think we have our answer from from the bus which actively makes a lot of their offense is filled with weapons. I Dunno they may need some work on that old line but they have Mike Evans Chris. Godwin one of the better. Why was he redo in the League at this point? There's not many people that could compete with that they have OJ Howard who again as we talked about as a tight end who has reshuffled potential yet but not much time very tight ends so now may he may be the person to unlock. That also have came embraced so things will do something to tide and stuff that The Patriots have done over the years. Ronald Jones is in a bad running back and he's had he had his moments throughout the this past season and again with a quarterback. Tom Brady getting them into advantageous situation. Not that James necessarily didn't but again having quarterback Tom Brady is a big difference then because he knows he he's he can manipulate the defense sern. Get maybe get Ronald Jones into some makes it advantageous situations advantageous runs. So maybe he get him open up and then the OSCE from from their standpoint again. He's a he's a chordbuddy doesn't really turn the ball over as much obviously. Was He great rash here now. Some that could be predicated or something that could be placed on the fact that his weapons on the outside last year weren't that great announced their ten times better with the bucks currently But again he was definitely a quarterback on the decline to a degree but at the very least. He's not a quarterback this pronin a lot of turnovers next like I said it's the biggest thing if the James even throws say like twenty years happenings. That thirty bucks may be win. Two more games maybe even three now instead of seven to nine. They're nine seven ten and six. Maybe SNEAK INTO. A playoff spot. You never know so. That's kind of what the bucks going for her. And also the the suppose in Tampa next year not that I'm not GonNa say that Super Bowl bound because that'd be a little crazy At this point in time but I mean a team that's host who never played an in house e Tom Brady is known for going to super bowl. Also you at least have to see at least have to believe it's on the table again. Not No guarantee that they'll get there but it's you gotta you gotTa think about it and that's not something that the bucks would have had people believing that they are team. That could get to the super bowl before Tom Brady Invade sign many a lot of other quarterbacks Philip Rivers Teddy Bridgewater resigned Amos. Like a lot of this. There's no there's no way you thought like Oh yeah. This team probably could go to the Super Bowl but because of the fact that you have Tom Brady. He's got guests. The pilots every year though again different team different coach different situation These guys got to play offs every year guesses who all out we have to think they can not say they will go as they did in this past season but you at least have to think they can so. Tom Brady on the move. It sounds like he's not the only quarterback on move. I mentioned Teddy Bridgewater go into the panthers. Sido believe what three-year sixty three million dollar deal to go there So they get their new quarterback of the future question mark because what Teddy's twenty seven years. He turned twenty. Sounds who turned turned twenty. Eight to November against added three new deal. Yes twenty four million dollars in year one thirty three million dollars until guaranteed from Tom. Sarah and good for him just because again. This is the guy that had lost his starting job. In Minnesota do a severe knee. Injury had been the backup to drew brees for a couple years. Did while the season won all his starts though. I mean the N. T. game on. I'm not one of those guys that puts a lot of emphasis on a quarterback wins because again. There's more to winning a game just to play of the quarterback though now see if he plays well helps the so he's He's has a new his new deal. But the now that leaves the the panthers with a decision to make on Cam Newton because obviously if you signed him you're not signing him to be a backup. Says you need to move on from Cam Newton. But it's kind of weird. Because now they lost all a tray leverage. Because you know you can't keep them so nosy and give up a lot for him. See the editor. Am for like pennies on the dollar. Which I mean. We've got the bill brought in a couple of segments but that's kind of what he did But yeah so then you gotta train one for pays onto our maybe even have to cut up. And that's like why would that doesn't seem that advantageous from the panthers standpoint to do something like that but I will see what they end up doing with like. I said them them choosing to assign a new quarterback before the average Cam Kinda hurts all the leverage they have in trade negotiations. Because everyone knows you already have new quarterbacks and no one's if there's a situation your quarterback room it doesn't affect them so then I'm just gonna I'm just GonNa take on There's GonNa take him on to give up a lot form. It doesn't make any sense and that's what I understand completely so we'll see what they do. The colts have a new quarterback. It seems like they signed Philip Rivers too. I think it's only a one year deal But yeah sounds a one year. Deal to call twenty five million dollars again. I guess they decided to Cobra. Said experiment is over then. Mean Fair to him. Though I you could argue. How much better? Silver IS DEAD. Jacoby percent at this point in time because obviously if if James wouldn't turning the ball over so much people would have talked about Philip doing the same thing I mean you started all sitting game. Last year is usually a gap for that and that's actually the fourteenth consecutive season again. He's a guy that's pretty durable when it comes to that e through twenty three touchdowns but also twenty interceptions and again is not. He had weapons. You have key now. And who have Mike Williams? You have hunter Henry was coming back. He wasn't like all the way there. I mean he wasn't the I the whole ceiling. Missed some games you often know. Who was great. Melvin Gordon who was silence. He got laid back under a begin. Necker who knew was argument vest running back out last year. Not named we'll probably not McCaffrey. But outside of him the like he was he was an excellent receiver so they had weapons and defense was in bad but again the oilers interception kind of doom them. So as I'm saying you kind of wonder. How much of an improvement is he from? Go respect if you're paying a guy that much money. You're assuming that you're trying to improve on your quarterback play. And if you look at Cobra Seth numbers from last year. They're not bad again now. Great so I see why they at least felt like They can move on and I mean I don't know for certain if Cobra is a long-term star in this league but he missed. I don't miss a couple of games played youngest one game. I thought he missed more than that. All right okay my bed. Ds Missed one game. Due for in fifteen games to for under three thousand yards which is really eighteen touchdowns six interceptions sixty one percent. Completion percentage only six point six yards per attempt passer rating of eighty eight which is an OEM. Us useful in the run game if I can find those stats for you. Guys over two hundred yards. Twenty first downs on the ground What else do you score doesn't say that's kind of annoying. Where is it? Oh yeah this advanced rushing. I didn't need that. Yeah so he's four touchdowns on the ground there zip with that was useful With delays. Now's if not something. You can get from Phillips. So that's an interesting aspect of their offense at you gotta change. After even with Andrew Luck they still had a guy who get not not exactly Lamar Jackson but he was mobile income. Move around. So that's kind of a big big deal just moving out see. Philip is not that so again. We'll see how that affects their offense a little bit but yet they said the move on from to Kobe. Moving back to the backup role which may be. He's may be better suited for long term but again That's Indianapolis decision not mine Yeah so we'll see how that works out because again you you get that you go out and get Philip rivers. Assuming he's billion improvement and I think what they have seventy nine so you're looking at your division. It's basically up in the air. The titans not there one year wonder that taxes will talk about. I mean boulevard ruin that team. And then Jaguars rebuild mode. It seems like so divisions there for the taking. And you're hoping silvers could be the get you over the Hump and we'll find out if he is or fees or if he's been another gosh just on the decline because he wants father. Time comes he's undefeated so there's not much coming back from that. But Yeah so. That was the quarterback movement movement that we've had over the years I two days so like I said your soul talking about him later on we saw of him potentially be moved. Jamesy where he goes and he dogs he where he goes Ios By name was back got franchise and Mario went to Oakland. See if they're moved by won't And then who unintended who got For Akzo Righetti like Dawn Cam. Jamie's those kind of guys that are left to see like see who fills out the last little move in spilt quarterback spots before again after the draft is coming up so the Gaza felt this lot there. But the but you can't just have a rookie. No one else they gotta they gotTa these bring veteran. You would think but again we shall see me as when we come back when talk about more day one. Some the biggest moves biggest trays biggest signing stuff like that so yes we'll talk about stuff rapid break so stay tuned. Are you looking for the very best?

This show sleeps and breathes football. Don't forget to like on facebook and follow them on twitter visit. Yes MC PODCAST DOT COM for more info so they want what happened a lot honestly I would say. Probably the biggest thing or at least the biggest. The biggest star in the biggest Amount of Stereo on social media was the the Andre Hopkins Trade which Nolan's all coming unless I guess apparently After the fact a reporters many tax income tweet up. There was a rift between the Andre Envelope. Brian which may have led to this though even still with that. I don't know exactly if anyone expected this to happen like Tom yesterday. Or not yesterday or is when you guys are hearing this Monday. Two days ago but yeah that kind of caught me by surprise. I never know when as David nounce got traded to car into the Texans. I was like all right. I mean that's weird because they have Carlos Hyde and do Johnson but whatever May think these. Moore's easy useful. Ozzy cars are basically not use on passing downs that much. So Lisa gives them a guy that could be in for both An hour to the guys. We saw he kinda he kinda look lost. Lashings for the cardinals again. We'll see going and being with Texans. gives new life but from harnessing but understood why they would get a move on from him but then became through that the conversation they got back and then you see that the backyard your happens. You're like Whoa hold on time out what's going on here. How does David Johnson gets you beyond it happens? Down to happens is at worse now including Antonio Brown anymore because I mean news reports that they're trying to get them into Tampa Co. They don't need them. I know it'd be a mess. Don't don't do that but you don't need him that badly But none ankle NEOM is what at worst a third best receiver? And I think that those things too like f Michael Thomas and maybe Julio probably long as you can put above him at this point I see you have more than welcome to tell me. You believe. I'm wrong about that but from my standpoint I don't know anyone else that you could put above him so yet at worst thurbers evenly an therabreath receiver in the League can only net you David Johnson. In a second round pick up leaves is the guy. The full trade details were Texan. Get yonder Hopkins. Yet Texan hit David Johnson. A second and a fourth and then the cardinals get beyond Hawkins in the fourth so they slave swat forcing they add in the second round. Pick which in fairness Texans very men will picks over the over the next few years which I mean we will get to as to why that is because they treat a lot of their picks For other people. And what is what. It is But yeah so they don't have that many pixel again. This helps them in that regard but lay. What's the plan here not saying? Maybe they just think Randall. Cobb will be able to make up for the fact of the Hawkins is gone and I mean he's based guy on everybody passing down these all stem also viable receive because the other receiver. Willfuller is unfortunately for him. Always hurt when something. He's not no guarantee he'll be there we can and week out rose to dehydrate. Even those little bit banged officiers. Still going to be out there. Most Games and I'LL STILL GONNA be contributing at a high level so seems I didn't have any issues with Sean. So again makes no sense to me but from Garner standpoint a I mean they have. They have fits that. Christian Kirk they drafted Etienne Isabela and Akim Butler last year. Though I think Butler was hurt all this patchy if I remember correctly Yet they needed they probably the number one. Because again Larry's this is last year. I think the thought lash was his last year so We'll see I guess it's up to Larry to see how long will supply But yeah so then. They need pioneer number. One and again. Janda Hawkins is one of the best number. One you get for again. Not that much compensation in my especially when we talk about another receiver was traded later that day. The competition looks even worse in comparison but you trade a regarding met. You didn't really want anymore. Get a top three hours receiver. You do that ten times out of ten. I don't care what Jaffe should give up. And again the highest after they give the second so. That's nothing so yeah. Garen was released looking up for next year car. Murray Bobby going to be a highly coveted fantasy quarterback which I mean I don't understand you have the dock was on your team that makes you immensely better and I was not the Sean Would wouldn't have been good without him but we see how good he was with them and not to say that government is exactly that level yet. But I mean here's the number one pick for a reason so and again. He was good last year with not near as good weapons on the outside. So you add the changes. Your offense again. Never him weird for the Texans will talk about the Texans more in the next segment but yeah so then that happen defined digs out traded later. Which you kind of. I mean there was a little rift between him and I guess Trine Karkin offers glenna. Phelan came out. Spoke out against him on me. I'm not against him directly but just about like the the play calling and like the stuff and seven days said he wanted to trade within. Didn't say one that trade and then Kirk signed a two year extension with the Vikings which is good for him. I don't I mean if nothing else he will be To quote The ZAMBONI Jones from ESPN less. You'll be leading at the bank which I mean. Not Everybody's going through all of it but if you're not you might as well make as much money as you can while you're playing and that's exactly what cousins is doing. So shout at the him and his agent because they've done a great job of getting Kirk as much money as Ibaz. We could all the course of his career so far. So is that John to them. We yes it was just funny like not that long after that. Stefan do something about like looking forward to new beginning or something like that. Never like what. And then later. He's traded he got traded to bills which I mean. I'm not certain how much better situation that isn't also. At least Minnesota's call way of city that you play indoors like Buffalo. You play outside. So that's probably not gonNA be on but I What it is. The bills get themselves a high quality receiver. He's had what backs back you back to. Back Thousand Yard seasons over one hundred catches twosies ago. Only sixty three this basheer but again outing eighteen yards a catch. That's that's good only six touchdowns though but I mean on a bill. Offense that only had the basic John Brown Coal Visa. Your Bus Nice. Have another weapon house. Really good route runner saddle. That'll make things easier for Josh Allen to get him. The ball again DASH NYC. The most accurate quarterbacks will see how much Stefan digs lysine. Because he didn't like an Acharya thought was pushed down the field Depending because you can't delete donors depot but again us. He can be conservative at times and now she's not as allusive under pressure. Dashon is though that he's a little reckless. But in our gotta get on the ground as we've seen But yeah so have him now though to you again not ness Asia. That's an improvement release. Something different in your innocence. Scenario a situation where the teams looking up The Vikings kind of not that. They're not looking up there so probably decided potential playoff team but they're kind of just Then on the rise that Kinda like where they're at now. The bills are a team especially with Tom. Brady gone. I mean you could be looking at them running the division soon though again the the dolphins have something to say about that they're going out and signing everybody it seems like Basayev money so make sense but yeah so then you had that He got traded for. So that's the size. I was talking about before you. You see what the art there's no defined decency to more than that and apparently a can. They traded him for four draft. Picks the Buffalo sent a I V and six initiate draft and a fourth next year. While getting back at seven office defined days so then the fifth or sixth the fourth where everybody if you can get a first round pick for anybody is great is a great trade and the Texas couldn't be deandre too is i. don't say much. Better guys down suspectful but a better as even as defined eggs barn on Blake and they couldn't even get if they get a first round. Pick out of the gardens again. Carl we're going to trade. What the eighth or they WANNA take a top ten pick which I completely understand. They have a lot of old. They need to fill mainly often salon. And who knows it may even end up drafting Liam still. Because I've talked about before I mean that'd be a nasty a wide receiver group. We can they? They need help to protect either. So that's probably why they weren't going to give their first round pick just because they there's a drop off at any position between the League is like the good guys. I guess there's a reason why certain guys going I guys go in the second third fourth. Whatever around after that. So if you have a top ten pick you're getting what is believed to be an elite level player and with there being four really good tackles than like a little bit of a drop off the being eight basic guaranteeing yourself one of the four so again if they chose to do that and they might even receiver and again going receiver. Now Reagan picker receiver before the cardinal thing. I mean you never really know. But I don't think anybody's fingers you before the car. No so then. They may have picked all their series sets. Judy Lamb Rugs that who else mems Denzel. Midday like Him Jalen. Rieger Justin That is more than enough names out there. Chenault if I mean they really love all. Obviously he's a little bit banged up but So then that happened so shout good for the bills. Gave a lot for him so dunno by that but if he bruiser offense than giving for some pick fine as we saw cows aged couple years go their office. Jesse approved with mark of having to pay Five years One hundred million dollars. They gave him an extension. Arguable is on. I guess he was a free to Saddam extension but like. They signed him to that deal though. Seems like it's really like two years forty million then like every year after that Kind of thing we. Nfl Connors a weird. The winning break them down but along the shortage. So it's a good long good good. Nice Extension from where Cooper is out. The him obviously seem like he wanted to remain the cowboy and obscene. They were able to keep them so as it is. When you have we just area where you'RE GONNA lose Byron Jones which he lost. The dolphins are big money and I mean no state income tax. Which might have been a factor for Tom Brady was? Maybe we'll benefactor for Byron. Joe seemed like he would just go to the highest bidder more or less as opposed to like. Amari apparently said Washington gave offered him more money. We don't know exactly what the number was I don't think but they said they offered him more money than he was like Nam. Good which I mean in fairness I would choose. Dako dwayne hassle at this point in time as well dump Sonata. Believe and act like a top ten guy but he's Mississauga's solid quarterback. You could do worse than put it that way. And in my opinion doing hassans is worse. At least at this point in time to say you can't surpass the right now. Dwayne essence is not a better quarterback so loud. I go down and quarterback if I don't have to plus see I see that so yeah so tomorrow coop again is money other talked about Byron Jones. Gap paid he was obviously the big score on the market and he got paid like it makes them got bit made the highest paid. Corrina League Five Year Eighty two point five land ideal for this hour guaranteed forty million in the first two years for him so is is he frontloaded out. He's a guy who's what about three twenty eight I think so. You're not exactly a young guy though in fairness most young good corners don't hit the free agent market so there is that He got you got payment dot going back on the market. Which is I'd soon as what was looking for so no complaints from him there Who else happen. Colts traded their first round. Pick so how to the forty niners for force bark there which was kind of interesting just because you could argue not named Nick. Bosa buckner was their best defensive lineman but when they paid arms around the you can't just give everybody big money on defensive line So they traded him announce again. I pick back for anybody that works in and as a team for like the forty niners who Don't have a second third or fourth round. Pick UP TO I. It gives them some flexibility if they wanna be able to treat back Recoup some of those pics. Now that chances with one I I'm pick especially with being at thirty one. Never GonNa get that much of trade back up at the end of first round thirteen. Are you might work with something and you still probably going to be in the first round. Pick bag you trade thirteen just because you can trade down like in the twenties get that. Get a twenty pig. Maybe a second third something like that. So is the four hundred more flexibility ozzy again. I think they're gonNA MISS DEFOREST. Buckner a little because again pressuring the Middle Mixing the little bit easier for the guys on the edge. I E D Ford Nick Bosa but again they have armstead still. I think yes. I'm still there. He was first round. Pick See if he can replace ops he's going to be hard to replace the force. Bucknell but then again from the standpoint that yet they needed they needed some help got that again had the first pick for it but Yeah you have to. You have to pay to get good players whether it's money or draft capital and that's obviously what the colts were willing to do and yet yeah the national. Some of the some of the deals there are a lot more deals. Obviously again I could. I could spend hotel talking about every team and the deal that they've done not gonna do that at this point in time margin in accounting John. We'll give you over here on the biggest stuff but yeah there was a lot more lot more deals that were done some mid tier mid level on deals. That was Knowing one the guy is still out. There at the moment is cloudy. Who hasn't been signed yet? Which is interesting because then. I guess you got him. You guys can be traded yawning agok race. Still targeting betrayed at some point Be submitted us like the passage that left some like mid to your corners mid-tier receivers Robbie Anderson Then yeah so then. We'll have to see what happens to the rest of the quarterback so still lot to be done with the NFL free agency period so now over yet but again a lot of movement already news I two days and a lot of big names going to new teams and also speaking of the buyer dozen. The dolphins dolphins paid money to a lot of guys afforest last thing. I'M GONNA touch on before I move on to the Texans in what executives that they are doing. They signed Byron Jones Sign Shack Lawson from the bills. Shine Calvin Roy Signed Jordan Howard. Sakamoto grew Jay Hill. Both from the form. Eagles so yeah. They're they're not afraid to get on again. They had a lot of money to give out but not afraid to give out money not afraid gone. Sign reading so their teams in a look much different at this time. I mean than it did last year. So we'll see how that goes for them you know they're they've given out the giving. Us pretty pretty decent money These these aren't dislike cheap blue another one year deal but they're not as given out just deals and also Bs partisan biggest ones. I know Beagles paid big money to another defense alarm in which is that necessarily what they needed. Probably not by me more help but the corners even Bishen but John Hargrave based on a lot of things. Nfl people were saying an steals people are saying. He's a very good defensive. I guess defensive. Tackle not necessarily nose tackle per se because he can rush the passer. He's I think one of the from. Pf is one of the Best Grade. Interior Defensive Linemen. Turn the pressures. Hurry stuff like that. So having him next to Fletcher Cox makes life a lot. Easier on Than than biggest issue one of the biggest issues for the eagles. They've just had a mismatch of different defensively. Tried to pair with Fletcher Cox. Last couple of years. They've all been banged. Up was timmy. Jernigan Jackson Different Guy tried to make some they're having really panned out so they give our hargrave can be that God consulate by twenty seven. So he can be. He's going to be there for things like a three year deal so they hope it's going to be there for next couple of years. Family Jackson become a maximum brandon. Graham still dairy bark next like they still have a lot of guys only offensive line but like the bill to the trenches and they're doing good job of continuing to do with again going after guide to help pair budget cuts. But Yeah I guess. A lot of moves are made. Raiders Raiders on. Some guys sounds like like every every teams done something more or less so akers did stuff like I said. It's it'd be impossible to go over every move until into a news. Otani but again if a lot of stuff happened and thank goodness for it because again now we have stuff to talk about so speaking of that when we come back when discuss what has acted as Bill. Byers plan because right. Now I'm confused. We'll discuss maybe what his thinking is in some of the moves he's made since he's been given this GM power. And I guess. What's next what I would do if I were to Shawn Watson. So we'll talk about all that stuff right after the break so stay tuned.

Gs MC PODCAST DOT COM for more INFO Cbs Sports Network. So Bill O'Brien. He's very confusing at this moment in town because again why trade yonder why. I don't know I didn't get it as accused when it happens. I'm not any less confused a day or so. After it happened. Still kind of timepiece together. Like a wise ass. He would do that. Not a whole lot of sense to me by day is what it is. It's I mean it's more or less done dousing penny physicals and stuff so but I mean even even if something would happen you still got probably got rhythm somehow. Could you can't just clear that British Bird. Whatever bridge it was is burned so they'd have to move on regardless but Yeah what are the Texans doing? I don't know I don't know what the plan is out. No IN WHAT UNIVERSE TRADING. I guess depending on how you feel about. J. Watt who again injured but one of the best generation. And I feel about Sean. Trading argue the best player on the for what again the second round pick and running back who got replaced by a traded for midseason. That's that's the play here. I don't know it seems very odd to me. I mean Hopkins coming off. Three straight thousand yard seasons He is the second all-time leading receiver in Texas history. Auto Johnson terms receptions yards touchdowns He's made four pro bowls drew applause He's been all pro teams three times. One best receivers again. Have you talked about in football and just like now? I'm good and again the sound like he wanted some more money. Which again I get everybody. Because everything goes the way context where it's like you're only the highest paid educated for a short period of time. Like Julio trying to get just I get extra money last year but I think he did. We saw it as a married has got paid like every time somebody comes up Saint L. Like different guys remembered. Somebody comes up is their turn to be the highest paid guys position and then go ahead. Agai plays at a level. He feels like a better mascot. He wants to get paid like that. And then it's just like a never ending cycle see. That was kind of the report was that he wanted more money Which again I having like. I say it's coming off some great seasons Even in what many considered to be a down year. Which was this past season. He still was able to put up Still able to put up over a thousand dollars. Eleven hundred yards and seven touchdowns again in a down season coming off a season two seasons where he had in two thousand seventeen thirteen almost fourteen hundred yards thirteen touchdowns when some of those games were without Sean because he got hurt Africa that year. An an two thousand eighteen had fifteen hundred almost sixty eight hundred yards and eleven touchdowns as advocating hundred yards eleven touchdowns in his career indecency than twenty fifteen with again. Quarterbacks that are not near as Watson is currently Kanye the worst season I will take that by sixteen was the worst season. He's add In terms of recently but again in a down year for him he side over eleven hundred yards and seven touchdowns. That's not something you trade normal now. I'm not bill O'Brien clearly. Whatever situation. They had behind-scenes was unsalvageable. Because that's not you don't create a guy with I believe it was reportedly. He had three years left his deal so again. No rush to trade him. You can figure something out or again. You don't have to treat them right. You know the trim the first day of free agency you can. It can wait. There's no need to rush that. In my opinion but bill felt differently. Antija Zone Lia so there threes years left on his deal two years until they took me out to renegotiate. It just seems odd let again does kind of what Bill Ryan said. He was given the ratings of the GM giving up a lot of draft picks Given traded a town away guidance. In town in terms like Laremy Tunsil but As a team that is without first round picks the next two drafts. Most wanted to second on how you can get and when you have only let go again you can get a first round pick back. And he didn't so again just the the thought process behind it is a little bit baffling and fewer any tax fans. That listen to this. I am sorry for you because I know many Texan fans on twitter. Kind of overbill Brian. Stuff 'cause obviously he's I mean outside is that he's done as a GM they start the the motion game they were up twenty four nothing And they and they're losing by halftime baffling He doesn't go for it on Fourth. I think was one fourth and one fourth into the goes for with the fake punt on his own side of the field again helped. Kency cut into lead and kind of Kill whatever momentum. The Texans did have in that game. See HIS ENDGAME. Stuff is a little bit confusing and then obviously his. Gm moves are a little bit confusing. This is I mean this is almost Shit Kelly ask. You could say in terms of I know in back to back off season shift. Kelly offloaded He let go. The cut disowned accident because of some speculating gain ties or whatever. I don't know then the next season I believe is when Jerry Manakin walked and then they traded Shawn McCoy. Four Kiko Alonzo for more organized. So basically why haven't Shawn McCoy is still probably the best running back the The Eagles have ever had up until you know my boy mouth sanders gets it together being. He had some very good seasons in buffalo during that time. But again weird move didn't make any sense Macken Wall Traded Nick Foles for Sam Bradford went on DeMarco Murray and Byron. Maxwell did the moves the moves are baffling and that's why on the NFL anymore. Because he got he got too much power shaft more that good that will be the back because he he is responsible for from Eagle. Samper getting Malcolm Jenkins who they just Declined his option because he's older guy looking for a lot of money. So can we pay that much at thirty two year old safety though I mean? He's the heart and soul that out of the Fletcher. Concentrating gram. He's always on the field and in a second of Newtown you. You don't really see the get rid of guys with this different story. So wrought in him was responsible for bringing Lane Johnson and Zach Arts so again not all bad for showing how nick foles go to see. Z helped the eagles down when they brought him back as the backup on the Nacion. No one super bowl for them so not all bad for Richard guys tenure but outside his moves gm or what led to him getting fired and you could argue bill going down a similar path not the same exact path but a similar path. If you look at some of the Tracy's made in recent years about the Andre Rocketry makes no sense in. My opinion traded a third round pick for Gary on Connie from Oakland. Who wasn't really that good beforehand. And then obviously he was all right with the Texans but again not nearly the first pick that he was paid to be traded to David on cloudy for a third round pick in two linebacker daily. Do much compared to today von cloudy though again he was hurt a little bit this year. It isn't that new but again I do think there are often could have. I mean the defense allies especially when jd walkout her palm could use. Somebody light today macaroni. But this'll be the plows without him so not all bad. That's why we'll keep him. Bill barring around if he keeps making the playoffs though. That might be a partly it division more than anything because the trading day on Condoleeza third round pick back Traded Laremy Tunsil. It also traded to. I A backup corner and a tackle for Laremy Tunsil. Kenny stills a fourth this year in six next year so again Laremy Tunsil. They need to tackle help. Cool but still too. I probably a little rich for my blood in the now you have to give him a massive extension. When I guess they could do this all season maybe next off-season whenever they decided to do because again you trade I where the guy. You're not gonNA give her the same thing like the ramp and if they decide to talk to Dave Ramsey they're gonna he's GonNa get all he can get because he traded first round picks for him. You not gonNA WANNA walk kind of the kind of what happened with cab in Amari Cooper. You can't just on a book and want I wanNA pick for you. GotTa give him what he wants. That Jamie no sense. Jr aside for A tackle who they didn't we need but still seems Kinda odd when they do really good for them but they need him traded to doubts for a third round pick which is weird because like I said they in couple and later on they traded for another running battles like having run by senior trade for the late trade for no running back and David Johnson. So that's odd so then yes graphics over the next few years I know this this this this this year. They have no first round pick. They have a second guess. Well two seconds now a third to fourth fifth and a bunch of sevens like I said no first round pick and announced next year no first round pick and now you find a way to replace the onto Afghan some out. I mean they tried to cobble see gave him what three years? Twenty seven million dollars. See if that's worth it. Probably not but again. He was good with the cowboys last year than the drought passes. Ida's I don't I said I don't know about rise. Maybe try to get them so fired though. Gm so he probably can't fire unless the owner steps in doesn't seem like that's going to happen So Yeah. I don't know what you need to do to get fired. But if I'm Shawn Watson I'm getting out of there as soon as I can personally because again if they're going to trade. They entered my best receiver without seem like again after they have sold the quarterback on moves but clearly. They ran about him because he kind of seem calm. Shocked and thrilled about it That's going to happen. Then how can how can I trust them to do anything that makes sense for me or for the sake of how can you believe you can so again? Shawn Watson. Get Out of there before unless unless bill bright is longer than they say with Houston but if he's going to be there I don't know I don't know what unless they draft. I mean this lawgivers. He was issue in this draft issue. So you can get a good guy the second round but again I need number one. Can you still willfuller nor Reynolds number one receiver and you can't just Does everything on the back of a rookie. And a lot of Ram through deandre Hopkins are the last couple years. You've got to make up for all that production and I don't know how they're going to do it maybe. Bill O'Brien has a plan. I'll be as a because if not people are going to be ridiculed game for this move for RDR but it backfires phoebe ridiculing him for this move for a very very long time again Chip Kelly you ask any eagles fan even half superbowl win. Most of them will still say that they can't stand Shit County and like the the African. How many years have been what four or five year anniversary since he traded Michelle McQueen a couple of weeks ago and it still brings up. Ptsd for a lot of eagles fans so again. Bill mine has a plan because he's looking more chip Kelly today but you so that's that an afternoon and after the next break we'll come back and discuss who with the mayor's GonNa do other corvettes. Seems like they're probably the last big. I mean you got Patriots Too. So then we'll see like the. The bears are kind of been in talks with a bunch of different teams for trade people. Maybe some free agent guy. But they're going to be going to trade route to find the next short-term quarterback quarterback till Suss what their offers are in who could be the best option for them after the break so stay tuned.

You are bye Tracy. So the bears the bears. What do they do? Seems as if all signs are pointing towards Mitch Mitchell. Trubisky is no longer being the starting quarterback now thousand. The back of the president is not much they can do with them off set up his fifth year. Option seems like Unless again something happened this year. He has He has a resurgence. Maybe a Ryan Tannehill ask comeback. We it seems like from people that are talking to creating talking Teddy Bridgewater Imagine he's tried to have conversation Tom. Brady. How's he didn't last that long Maybe Baby Reset Philip Rivers. I know they were talking about. Maybe their car Trading trading with the raiders to get him seems like they are trying to do whatever they can to at least give Mitchell competition. Now say they're going to replace him. I guess we'll have to wait though. All the Aussies got pushback. So we'll see what happens with that. Amber whitlow training camp till season starts all that stuff to try to kind of Figure stuff out but at the same time they said don't seem like they're just going to give him the keys and let him drive the car at the their debuts GonNa Bring in some other people to compete with him at the very least yes or who could those guys be Anti Derek Carr potentially though. I don't think that's going to happen. Is Going to give the keys over to Mariota? Not Too sure about that. We don't know if they're GONNA do Jay Mrs Free. It seems like again. If I don't think James is gonNA WANNA come back to Tampa to be a backup. Let me I know someone tweet out in spy five and be hoping for his own Ryan. Tannehill me go somewhere. Be a backup. Then maybe get a starring role duck season cause injury or a bad place. Something like that. So maybe he's guy could go box. I'm not the box the bears just because I mean eve- I feel like he could beat out Mitch Potentially House. We don't know really know you got some guys on twitter for the bears open openly lobbying to get Tom Brady teddy bridgewater so you know that they are not exactly thrilled about the core by situation because again team players on that unless they think that there's something better out there for them knowing we'll guess what team and I mean. Yeah they kind of got forgotten Went out Lego lender foreign beside Robert Quinn. Two big diesel extension. What I think is five year. Seventy million something like that and he was really good for the cowboys. Is your argument. The Best Pass rusher Who else at least not somebody else on the inside to hold on. I'm trying to remember who it was. Why don't they brought Veith in back Who Else did they signed? Geoff firmer cleaner my missing something. No yes a five seventy million dollars Who Else did they decide? Another Defensive Lineman could be wrong about this style. Now maybe didn't okay. I mean they just add I mean. They advocate Hicks Goldman to not necessarily needed. Gar- let another lead chase. Daniel walk run. Jimmy Graham which is what I was talking about but is a that's interesting because I mean I don't know if he's better than Trey Burton at the moment but at least gives them some two tight end sets that they could potentially use. I don't know what the plan is he. Don't give a guide to your sixty million dollars to not be the starter. You would think Obese Monty for three hundred zero tight end. We'll see the back to the quarterback position. So yeah so what do they do? Where do they go so thanks? J. Mrs technically option Masika blood. I've got to mention that. I think the charges the other team was GONNA be in play for quarterback so them bears pay patriots charges that three teams where some of these guys can move to if they do get moved. See us like I said you got Derek Carr. We're just kind of like let me see better than Mitch. Probably but that doesn't move the needle to too much Eighty dollars same similar. Kind of boat A guy that is probably better than Mitch though again did get benched last season for a rookie. Basically and then have to get on benched because their rookie was terrible. Who IS IT RYAN? Finley? I believe Bingo Star. Having they're going to Joe Borough Route. You would think obviously lacking change between now and the draft but you would think that's the route that they're going so we'll see what goes on with that but I'm yes he like. He's on the move. So maybe they trade for him but again. How much better is he the Mitch? I don't really know Talk about James Already. Like he's against powered better than Mitch. But then James Experience is one that is probably a wild rider no and a one guy is a Buc fan and I know he was kind of just. It's all up and down. You never really know what's going to happen. I mean James could saw the off a pick six and then going on throw four touchdowns and no picks throughout the rest of the game. That every every series really. You don't really know you're like this too serious. Could end touch on sears. Could end the PIXIES. It's a very. It's a very confusing experience to lift. So I duNNO BEARS FANS WANNA deal with ads especially with the defense that they have. They can't really afford a Gaza that turns the ball over. That much though again did get his eyes fix so maybe that'll change since for him. But at this moment we don't know if it will and we can only go off this past season in this passage receptions so when defense as good as the bears released on paper. You don't really need that much. The offense I mean you need a little bit more than what they've had had this past season because I was a little bit better two seasons ago when they made ploughs and potentially could have got gone well good of at least got division round of not for a field goal which made people like to forget but for me now. All Cody. Parkey saw got tipped. Did he miss it? Yes but at the ball did get tipped if I would change the trajectory. A little bit of the of the ball. Nothing was doubled org. Bs You got that. And then the last name is that was a option but wasn't really like a full option until object panthers made available now new guy. No they would go daddy but like he's GonNa Panthers so that's not happening But Yes oh. What's so Cam Newton at the very least cam? Newton is a former everybody not Obviously dispatched season. But again that that's more than guys like eighty dollars and Derek Carr half and I'll see Mitch Mitchell Super Bowl Lost but he's Lisa's Ben. Like I said what an MVP Was once when one of the most feared if not the most feared of quarterbacks in the terms of is like is everything could do from. I mean is. He wasn't all elite passer but he had he had a good arm yet. The ball way needed to go. was the dominant running force. Now that the same Mark Martin is going to run away from you. Run around you and she kinda shaky on the way spend. Do I do all the Nice fancy stuff cam. Just the guy who's going to run through Gettysburg like six five to. He's like six I. I'm trying to see what measurements to do six five to fifty back this outside defense allowing Moshe guys on defense. Aren't that big. So that's a very rare scenario. Where the worry? The Offensive Guy Specifically quarterback is bigger than decently. Are that are trying to tackle. So that wasn't a lot of fun. Obviously last year come with the foot situation so exactly great personally and even the Corpus career has been up and down you look from twenty thirteen. All on his went before then five eighty one nine fifteen one one. Mvp then six and eight eleven five and six and eight in OSCE that he didn't replay that much this actually because of the foot and twenty eighteen years a little bit hurt. He's a little bit banged up to. I didn't know you through two thousand yards in his rookie. Kind of nuts was also acidosis. So there is that we as a passer hasn't really been that great overall never thrown open for one three touchdowns wants the MVP season. Obviously W interception guy. He's older now he's thirty going on thirty one. Beat up that that style of play can only Is Sustainable for. But so long. Because I mean look. I mean every year between sixteen. He's had over a hundred carries which is not typical for our a typical for a quarterback. And then obviously not a corvette. I can't unlike Lamar versus whatever he's lived there getting down to forty hits. He was he was getting us. He was doing in the ball at the goal line. Base it a goal on bad going up guys going through guys whenever need to do to score so that we're in to me. You started taking toll on him but again had basically all year off so if it's right the shoulder back right everything navy could be useful and then I mean at least from the bare stamper. Now's the most potential like the highest ceiling in my opinion in terms of again he's the former VP. And he's still only thirty one. I mean again different places but the Brady's forty three degrees for that quarterbacks can play into their for his caymans probably not but he can at least have a couple of good more years left him. You would think the most quarterbacks are done at thirty one was seventeen to play and maybe not be as good but still be decent on probably the if I were the bears. That's the one look into going to the most and maybe they can wait for the better because like I was talking about earlier lost all leverage. Being as a side they sounded. Take a break water. So now you can convince me that. They are one hundred percent on board with That they're gonNA trade him because again they don't have to go forward with gun you don't you created the score by situation. I didn't does the bathroom Again they have everything else in place. All I need is the quarterback. That's literally at all. You need is a quarterback and then quarterbacks position situated then they're a perennial playoff team me potential super bowl contender because defensive on paper is going to is going to be right. You GotTa do enough and I think Cam Newton can do enough. I think he can just do enough or not. And I guess I need better than Mitch which is kind of basically all. They're going for this porno. They'll by Nick foles on against the eighty dollars in Deir car situation where these guys are. Good you can get the plows may get a pro bowl out of them. But I mean will. Maybe Nick foles can look tired of. Nicole's can wing superwoman. Getting starter came in in relief. Duty But again these we know that came in can be your starting quarterback winning. Mvp Gift Josue. But we know all that stuff happened. Played All the games I guess. Well maybe what fifteen game that year? When he played all sixteen not better system game that you see if he can be that are. You're starting from day. One guest you win you live stuff. Not Emmys guys can say that for their careers. We used to guide. The bears are being able to go after at this point. Says I'm saying from my perspective. Seems like if I'm going to go after a guy cams probably going to be the guy I don't know like Derek Carr any nick foles O'Connor limit better. Maybe kind of own power and Mitch at least if camp healthy and that's and that's kind of begun be unfortunate part is that you. Can we do physical on him because Karna buyers So you won't be no. He's healthy until like I said maybe maybe may be in conflict with a physical late April at best. So that's kind of the waiting around up in the air aspect of it is kind of unfortunate but again. I think if you're gonNA bring on Cam Newton so we'll see how that goes like. I said I don't know what the president until maybe we'll see some movement from them tomorrow but if I think my old African just because again that gives me a high ceiling again. He's he's hurt gets hurt a lot. So that probably was there floor low. Because if he's hurt then you gotta go back to Mitch. And then is what it is but at least in terms of what he can be or what he can do can is better than all the other guys available so. I think if I'm that's me I'm having do but again. I don't know the bears and Ryan Pace are going to take that risk. And if they don't I completely understand because again I guess they can't even beat up over the course of his career so you can't count on him to be out there every every game which is unfortunate at this point but I mean he will. He plays hurt so you can but like again. He's had surgery and stuff the last couple of seasons. So you don't not healthy is going to be in house you can't. The point of this is to have guys going to be around your super bowl again cam. If you're not on the field can't do so we will see what the desire to do. Probably but then what they do will affect both panthers and the chargers so or maybe what? The pants in charge do like the bears. Like whatever happens and we'll see how that goes but yeah that's probably the move from bands but we'll see what they so after after when we come back in the NBA for a little bit more players tested positive for the corona virus. And I think that basically means the lease the seasons probably done in my opinion. But I WANNA talk about why that who these new players are what team they are and how it can affect the league and all that stuff rafter break so stay tuned.

Now which again how unfortunate but not surprising in my personal opinion just because I mean again. These are these are Human being just like the rest of us so there. Richard aren't immune to the disease though. Obviously they have better access to the test so that works for them because again they can get tested more easily than In our firstly you were erased by listening to this could under because I know I know of some people that have tried and have gone turned away. 'cause they've symptoms match up really. Haven't been convict. Someone test positive so unfortunate part about the disease. Since a lot of people are ason biotic I believe is the term basis than they can you can have without symptoms and I mean I think Katie said he didn't have any symptoms. Mitchell said he didn't have any symptoms. Go Baresi didn't have any symptoms. Say Stuff I'll good I think for would Who's the third guy did test positive? The invasive same thing I mean told through the net said they route without without symptoms at this moment. Only one guy said I think it's a minor aches which is one of the symptoms but yeah so a lot of people were just walking around with the virus. Don't even know they have it. Which is kind of the unfortunate part of it which is why it's probably going to be here for a while. Until there's more tests readily available in more people can get tested. Then more people know whether or not to quarantine themselves because they will know whether or not they have. The diseases kind. The issue at the moment is that many people don't know that they have it so just walking around as if they as if they don't have it and then here they are and they have it and now it's an issue so yeah so that's kind of this kind of problem when yet so The four guys from the teams has house. I think they will. They believe I believe they took the test after he came back from the San Francisco trip which is interesting gun. Oh San Francisco believes one of the city's that's only got complete total lockdown. Does it all the cases. They have and their lack of testing that there have been able to do Which again is safer than Than having everybody. How about at least if everyone- shutdown and came leave the house aside of the essentials or go to a doctor or whatever and then in theory you would be able to pass on to other people that are maybe more where. There's a better likelihood of of stuff happening to them. If they were to catch it then the normal person but she was goes so them testing positive now so they ended the worrisome? Has Anybody yet? But there's a possibility they could have because they kind of they. They could have it before they played them Lasting they play the Lakers son-in-law Lakers they started getting tested tomorrow Which administer the issue with the test? they we. Don't we have developed touchy at least in the United States where it's quick like it's GonNa take a few days to get back to people so now based everybody that's been play 'cause that's the quarantine themself next fourteen days which I mean again is unfortunate because again they didn't know before the Laban not out and about 'cause basic again most of the countries more hush shut down at this point But yeah so now they gotta they gotTA worry about who they've been in contact with. They've interacted with over the last week. Or so since they played the nets. Now that's an issue What else again. The word gotta get themselves checked out it just all because it's all bad we're going to find out again. Since it seems like only rich people can get check. Roman find out more and more athletes got no. I think what two guys in the Yankees Minor League system have it now. We're going to find out more and more guys have it as again. I guess one the test become more readily available in two more athletes get tested because now they can but yeah so then teams. The they played recently to your place. They were going to war with that. Game got cancelled some. They flew back the got checked. Said you gotTa Send. Anybody that the war. The Lakers got a check. People in the Bulls by checked think they might already been checked. They play the Jazz Spurs. Probably Grizzlies Celtics may be like I mean. South is probably again already got checked. 'cause jazz so some of these teams kind of overlap with people that have already had to deal with issues but Yeah now the now basis there's GonNa get to a point where basically every team and every play in the League coach staff. Whatever is going to have to get checked just because of the fact that you know who doesn't who doesn't have them league so again we're GONNA have to check everybody and then again as more people come back positive just the bore more chances the league in the season north of just gets pushed back because again like I said they already have. Savin gathered tested positive. And that's just because these are guys won't because the the two on the jazz one on our what's Christian would on the Pistons Amanda Mattos I know I was. I'd made the point to point out that He the shame Swede out that he was giving A. He gave him bread at work Before he before he desert positive Liaison distance against no one else from the Pistons added that we know of MEA has tests all income more and more readily available. We're GONNA find out more guys have noticed. Maybe not in. I was watching. I don't think imagine that many. Nfo guys may have is because they haven't had to leave their house that much recently though again A lot of people just walk around every day with it. So maybe they'll have it Maybe a couple of MLB guys might get it hockey. Mls emphasizing the just goes to show just how important it was that the o'casey doctor was on top of route ago. Bear goes literally without though without finding out about go baron. They're like that gang shut them. Then there's a good chance that up until maybe right now teams are still be playing games and the now then like I said if if four people from the nets had last week and who knows who they could have infected by this point. The one of them's Katie's who's on the bench so men. He passed on a more of his teammates. Then they would pass it on the more platelet within a like there would have been potentially hundreds. I mean this is only hundreds of players. But if like fifty two hundred guys that could have ended up with it in a embolic Willing to win the after the test and stuff and check in like in a week or two. We would have found that that. Oh well maybe over a hundred guys in the League would have had it if they shut out the games because I mean and again the NBA shut down games Kinda led to everybody else shutting the things down because again no one we knew it was bad over in China. News Bad in South Korea and Japan talked about already pushing the Olympics back. We knew what bad in Italy though we didn't. We didn't know this bad at this time. We we knew it wasn't good The just like the admission down kind of got everybody shut down and then also probably perked people's ears up. Kinda loud people. I mean even still as we talked about. We saw this weekend. People are still going after Saint Patrick's Day so again they have. The numbers skyrocket over the next week or two or month as people can continue to get tested and again. We see the the drawbacks From again. All the activity people had Over the weekend and all last week and I mean I guess we'll see even mentioned before numbers look like just because again even to this day people are still going on beaches doing public events. Just because photo rioja down because there's so much tourism it goes on down there. They I mean again. They're not the only people I can't afford to shut down. But you know they can afford to shutdown too many people that just that eat our time and hang out on the beach and stuff that Florida Florida's just like a state. That discount does his own things. That doesn't surprise me but again a lot of a lot of four people are necessary taking this. Serco's they could be at the moment and again it won't happen till we see them once again when you are tested for real and we see the numbers well some they're anonymous again will never know how many people had it. 'cause the champ people already added an have kicked it or pass along somebody else's it's hard to know for certain but Debussy but yeah so the MBA shutdown kind of got. Everybody should start because again. They're not happen. Who knows how many people would have been infected with the disease or the virus point in the also. Who would guide affected our cross Cross the country because of the bad we'll have like the curfews and social distancing roles shutdown different bars and restaurants and stores that have happened all across the country and we wouldn't have gotten multiple. I guess what we'd do almost daily briefing for the president talking about and China update us and having doctors and CEOS in different people come in and talk and speak in whatever but again that would be happening if the maiden shutdown so again shout Adam silver but at this point. Seven guys positive. I don't really see. Let me scenario where they come back. Unless unless we go and forge South Korea mode was opry. I mean they were China where there were. I'm talking about their their tests in any and everybody. So you know I mean you know relatively soon if you have it or not There again their quarantine stuff is different so like if you test positive. They're they're taking people from their home. Well nothing from homes but like they have like the fever stuff where Nick fever checks. Were if you go into any store any building wherever you get your fever you temperature check. That is too high then boom. You're off to a fever Like a fever hospital or Fever Hotel Rivalry House. All the people with like that are over. Even the knobs get them tested and check to see if they have a disease or not Take that like I said. They built new hospitals to the house. More people because again as currently constructed. We probably don't have enough hospital beds in the country to deal with this and plus the other right because now like all the disease in all the other injuries and issues people deal with on a daily basis shutdown. Like that's still going on. We just have obviously this this. That's taking more priority at the moment and that's kind of the issue in this run to the issue that we're going to have to stream other countries which doesn't seem like we're doing at this point we may have to be a little too late in my in my take us into may June. I know the president's July August till two potentially this stuff gets back Norman and then even some doctors said that it may take a year maybe more to To get everything back because I mean it just seems like do the fact. The testing isn't as good. This like so many people in the country are GonNa get it at some point or another. Not everyone's going to die which is lucky part but this only going to get it so just It's GonNa take a while for the disease. The kind of kick itself and be done or like. I said that they develop a early vaccine. That's not going to be ready for a year even if they wanted to get. It's still going to be so expensive. Most people can't afford it and it's it's GonNa be all mess but yeah so would then be having so many guys already having it. I just don't see how. Nba comes back at this point again unless the country goes into overdrive in John. Kick this thing which I don't think they will though I guess we'll wait and see if that happens but unless that happens that extreme measures to get kicked out the country China disease like tame down in the country. I don't see how we're GONNA be able to start the side of any sports league before like June at the earliest before June July. Like what's like by them. People may be over it and I mean not not necessarily the owners and the players. Because they're gonNA lose money and stuff like that but it just seems like there's a chance that they might be like he anna bump it because again you got plant the whole whole next season. That kind of stuff happens again. You can't start the season back up again in October. You got a plan out the whole next season in figure things out forgot schedule as it'd be it'd be a big mess. As more tests happened more people are GONNA test pilot than they do the whole fourteen days. And it's just it's going to be all it's GonNa be a whole thing so I honestly believe the chance to NBA. And maybe other sports are done for for this year at least next year. Hopefully everything we all right hopefully doesn't affect football my Lord. If if it's still going on September I'm GONNA be so sick but ness NBA laws and might be you might be was gonna find out as the days and we go by that more and more players as they continue to get tested seems seem as they don't seem like rich people and ethics can get tested at this point so these they'll no good for them the common pure personnel. But hey good for them these. Maybe that'll show people that. Hey this thing's real even I think there's a chance drip avid because it was a fissure with Katie and breaking out on what Mark Eleven. So it's like last week not possible so that'd be kind of a mess. I think he she is. He's already gotten tested if he if if was. He founded the news so now Canada's if he's if he's living in Canada obviously he's from Canada doesn't mean he's staying can't at the moment but here's another little bit different than the states. So we'll see what happens. But Yeah wholeness was all going to be a big big mess and hopefully will people will be listened. Wash your hands. Social Distance Southcorp game that cycle. It's fun stuff. And then we'll be able to could get faster ally likes. I think like what South Korea started like the basketball star begin China. I think they're basil. Leaves are starting backup. Because they're kind of like pain. The virus low bit and it's. I mean China's been awhile but South Korea basically just went hearted for like a month. And now they're going to be back to route to relative normality. So that's that's what we're looking at you guys if we can just do this for a couple of weeks to a month nice self quarantine isolation social distancing all that stuff which is not going to happen but wishful thinking then month by summertime could be back to normal not going to happen go gang. I don't think America a little bit more stubborn but could it could be. Yeah so we'll see what happens with that. The SYNC WITH THE DAYS. More more days come more happy. Celebrities are going to come out and say Abba just because they can get tested so there is that what seeking on the MLB that a good thing in terms of trying to make it right with the workers for their respective like arenas in teams and stuff like that so we'll talk about what they did in how other teams have other teams empires have already done this. But I guess they have done uniformly and hope this could be an example to set for the future for a different sports leagues. So we'll talk about that stuff rafters break so stay tuned shakeout so build around the women from the UFC INVICTA FC Dallas tour championship. We got the fights covered. It's the Golden State media concept's women's MMA podcast. The latest news upcoming fights discussions of previous matches. Join us as we talked to in about the biggest names in women's mixed martial arts past present and future when it's the women's fight game you know we're to listen to the golden state media concepts women's May podcast and podcast network so this is from Jeff Passan. Dsp and again shot the MLB for doing this again. One out again but obviously out different players different teams if normalizations throughout the NBA Nfl start working man NBA. Now there's foresees have talked about doing stuff whether it's like doting to the workers are helping set up meals that like kids that may not Had the best situations had about home console. Get Sin. So since they'll eat off I know steph curry's been one is like a million meals worth of meals on like that I know are talked about paying for The the workers at since they asked when we were like the arena worker since they won't be off during this time with nothing going on and not make afford though again. The PELICANS organization said they couldn't which was stupid but whatever different into the nets that allowed a lot of teams had talked about doing this. Which is the right thing to do. It should be a uniform thing in my personal opinion because again not just for Not As for these arena. Where there's a lot of jobs that are? GonNa have to shutdown do this earliest closed for short period of time in that everybody can do the things from not Iraq and do their DOPP from home and that's just the nature of some of these Industries and in jobs like that. You can't just do it remotely for everything. Sassy the one can are. But the ones that can't even have to come in and risk in the disease or they have to shutdown and the Nazis guys won't get paid and the government has talked about different plans to give Americans anywhere between one and four million dollars Then volleys all adults and gives them kids some money. Saugus to help out the parents and stuff because now they are at all swollen. Shut down basically so now. They're home more often. So you got to figure out how you how you care for them and take them odd stuff so yes. There's a whole mess but I will give Gabby critics. They did they were they. Did this uniformly so this from Jeff passing of ESPN ALL THIRTY MLB teams on Tuesday pledged. Thirty million dollars total so I guess the main from each team up cover? The loss. Weight is a ballpark employees who have been affected by the postponement of the big season due to the corona virus crisis motivated by the desire to help some of the most valuable members of baseball community. Each club as committed one million dollars. And we'll be commissioner rob Manfred said in a statement they knew clubs. We'll be announcing more details surrounding the support effort in their local communities. The timing of these announcements will vary because the need to coordinate with state and local laws as well as collective bargaining obligation in an effort to Max benefits realized by each group of employees. I'm proud that our clubs came together so quickly uniform to support these those in these individuals after say who provides so much to love the game now Z. We thought the opening day was already scheduled for twenty six. Got Push back two weeks. Obvious got its Manfred said that Ed best use our in mid-may and that's against I would fans and that's based on CDC recommendations stuff like that. I don't see that happening again unless we go off career on this and A just just completely do our best to Kick the Kick the virus which again Americans are stubborn. They don't like being told what to do so I don't think it's going to happen to with the May eventually happen because again the May not have any choice. Then we may get put on a government at nationwide shutdown. See if it doesn't get these numbers don't improve by not like I said some stay. San Francisco's doing some other cities are doing it. I mean we'll say cities already have curfews or most aphids. They already have curfews so that people can go out past eight PM or nine. Pm Wherever Leah so I give the MLB credit for doing this together because we talked about like you see like this player here or this team here from the NBA. We'll do it. Here's a metaphor guys counted plan to help some people out but it's one of those situations where The teams eventually came together but not all of them were willing to do this as a cohesive unit and an will be worth so again. I praise them and give them credit for being able to do that. Because again as we've seen in other sports leagues is not an easy thing to do. I mean it's not even not even disposing for companies in the country's not easy thing to do a lot of these guys Allow lot companies and stuff are are based on the idea of trying to make as much money as you can so because of that. They tried to cut costs and lower their lower their finances in whatever ways they can and one of the ways. Count another by in the contrary depending on your job again. Because if you're working for me than they used to working to pay you if you're not then narrows getting paid the sick leave or knives. Goodbye getting paid like the normal. I know articles. What was the not whole foods? There was African. There was a company that was I town the healthy people to volunteer and give their sick days for the sick people which is wild because again the corporation you just give those guys allow them to get paid sick. Leave because get as many doctors and people have said basically everybody's GonNa get this at some point so these Sonali people that gave up their sick days now when their when their turn to be sick. They won't have the days in order to get the whole vicious cycle. So yeah some saying as we've seen across the country it's not an easy do for companies and some companies have comes happens or just depends on the company but is not an easy thing to do to have these companies This win the give. Their mind is free money away like I said they're just giving their pain on sick. Leave their the paying. People not to be at their office not to be at their jobs would not something that they want to do. But Ozzy these weird situation room so they have to do it Or they've nuggets entirely. They don't have to do it because not everybody is but like I said the will be teams. Came together like look. We know how much how much these ballpark workers means to the everyday life of the being. How make it so that everyone can be safe and healthy and e- and have beers in other drinks and stuff and make sure everything goes smoothly on? It gave the game basis so announcing they are going to be the ones hurt by because again. Mostly guys don't have other job and if they try to get other jobs won't know the hiring really because rule will who's working or if you are. Were here worker movies. That's it's kind of a mess and also unemployment's are to get because some people like may not la. They're no get us also twitter of take it with a grain of salt But there was a guy that was trying to save trying to get You shine again employment. Because apparently they said that he he wasn't gonna be working anymore but when they talk to the employee the employer. They said that he was on a zero hour schedule basis thing because that he had one time he laid off he get unemployment saying this is just the ways in which companies inc finesse. The everyday person and I said I appreciate the. It'll be not stooping to that level in my because again they they usually could've they could've been like They're not working repaying then like I said they know how much these taxes these salaries mean to these people so it's only right that they compensate them properly because again like I said without them. The these these games would not go on a smoothie as they do and and again like I said. There's not very many things they can do. In order to supplement the money they would be making in those things that a weird scenario so the they should be able to get the money back somewhere in a lot of like airlines and different people difficult rations Chinese bells from the government. So I think I'm saying they can get bells but the average American worker can get a bailout. Because that's just not possible so appreciate that. I know who also previously used Usually after Santa Fe George Springer that plays a hundred thousand of our workers and Joe. Bauer who had raised in head rated five a twenty five thousand dollars Another charity Sam Game Bregman also press donate one hundred thousand dollars hundred. I mean a thousand corn food kits Houston area children and I was and also the MLB continues to negotiate with the MLB. Pay Association about potential payment to players. Service is consideration is another some consideration they could largely depend on when the season resumes. The uniform player con include a provision that allows Manfred to suspend contracts and payment of them in case of national emergency. Which I mean I was. He has been declared but also I guess the big thing now just figuring how to compensate the minor league guys who received last week at the end of two thousand nineteen season now paid an are paid only a premium during spring training. So I forgot to pay them. I know there's out there by guys that are paid told to stay healthy and all that stuff they also like not getting paid so is like you can't get another job 'cause you you have to be ready in wanting to give that up whenever to go back to whenever they will be season starts but at the same time and paying you so you need money to pay bills autism because it doesn't seem like there's not a uniform like over in suspended mortgage payments whatever. That's not happening yet. Not they won't but it's not happening yet so these guys get paid somehow so I figured that part out but again the ballpark workers not good for them. I commend them for because again is nothing they had to do. But let's see them do it because again it just the little guys as much as the big corporations out of my little guy's getting screwed to at least they can bicker rates offer or could ask for outs and money from the government and stuff. Little TRY TO ASK FOR THAT. They may get turned down so again commanded the MLB for doing the right. But yeah that'll do it for me here today on the GS MC sports podcast presented by G S MC podcast network listening as always Hopefully the NFL continued to vital was getting to provide us with content. Because again no sports who got to figure out something new or something to talk about. Say but again it should be enough stuff still going on with free agency and trade and stuff that was awesome to talk about and unfortunately like. I said there's GonNa be more athletes that that's positive for Kobe. Nineteen so that's a dumb I. We'll we'll we'll were working together. We'll figure out what's going on. What can be discussed talked about all that fun. Stuff so Like I said come here. We can get through this all together. We s again listening. If you haven't already subscribe to the pockets makes you number snaps. Owed could as well gives a five star rating rationale review very appreciated very helpful seaweed. Guys like dislike off on stuff again go social media one social media's who can talk intact we can discuss. We can debate Let's add. We'll have a lot of free time on on her hands respectively so allow time to be on social media which I may or may not be a good thing but again with that will be able to discuss a debate. A lot of things because what is there to do at this time again. No last sports on outside of again the NFL trying to do everything they can to provide us with subtle talk about in which I am very thankful for but again May need a little bit more than just the NFL. But that's all we got right now so I'm not going to complain because it we could not have that then. That would be a complete mess. Believe me so yeah. That'll do it for me here today. This has been my time And before I can remind everybody wash your hands stay safe. You're sick don't don't leave Trying to tested if you can Hopefully they'll be more test kits available soon so then more regular people can get does not as athletes and celebrities. Don't touch your face All that fun stuff again. If you're if you knew somebody try to quarantine them a different part of the house than when you're when you're just because again the lot of this stuff can live on countertops and services and stuff like that for for hours. So she comments basis with six people. is not the best thing at the moment so again tried to everything and eventually we will get through this. I think ozzy not a doctor so I'm more wishful thinking than anything. But I have faith in the American people to a degree not a lot of faith but a little bit of faith that eventually everyone will rows like. Oh how serious this is and that will be able to get it right. And then we could be in South Korea or be China or Japan wherever that keep. I've kind of Amino took them awhile. But South Korea South Korea was able to kick this thing then like a month month and a half again that took extreme measures. But that might need. That might be what needs to be necessary so again. Software team use facetime catch up on. Tv shows catch up on movies. I said call tax your friends. So you're not getting. You may not see them but he talked to them. It's twenty twenty. We have ways to communicate. Don't worry about it too much and again this'll be over hopefully sooner than we think. But again it's GonNa take all of us to get through this.

Order with ubereats tonight. Welcome to the ringer NFL show. I'm Chris Vernon and join him as he does. Every Wednesday is Warren. Sharpei warrant what is up Bernau well, after we got done with four weeks of the NFL season, we have a ton of big big news to get to So let's start off with a coaching change that took place after the events of the weekend Bill O'Brien is out at the Houston Texans. And it is not just a coach being out he was management also a bill O'Brien until this year were there oh And four had one losing season, which is pretty impressive though his overall record ends with the Texans fifty two and forty eight he was two and four in playoff games but they've started off the season Oh and four you and I chronicled as this season began that their schedule was absolute murder to start off with the chiefs and the ravens the steelers but they weren't able to get a week four win either against the team that they were favorite against and so what did you think when you saw the news? Come down where you utterly unsurprised and where do you think the Texans go from here well, look anytime you have a coach being fired after four weeks into the season I think it is pretty early in the season but at the same time, it's a long time coming for bill. Brian. which also is somewhat ironic because he's had a winning record as in so many seasons as you mentioned, taking his team to the postseason but here's where I stand on. Bill. Brian from a couple of different perspectives number one, Bill. O'Brien the GM obviously, the more he got in charge and got his fingers into this team. The worst situation has become I. Do not feel like he was very good gm or guy managing the salary cap, the personnel, some of his aggressiveness in Roster Decisions and bringing on players in overpaying for guys that don't have a lot of positional value such as the running back. Position definitely is catastrophic term for the health of this team not to mention the current season. So salary cap issues from that perspective from the perspective of. Functioning as an offense because he was the offense coach, he was to play caller. He was viewed as a qb Guru. Let's start most recently and then work backwards this past season he decided in some coaches do this some head coaches who were calling plays do this? We're seeing it happen in Atlanta as well. They give up some of their play calling duty in order to try to save their job. And then almost never works out well So he gives up some of his play calling duty to his offense coordinator, the offense corner and the offense in general looks terrible. So through after three weeks, he decides to reclaim some of that play calling duty to take more responsibility himself, and then the offense looked terrible in week three week four as well they didn't look good Shawn Watson did not come out the gates hot. He didn't come out the gates looking strong and that was the main thing that Bill O'Brien said in the press conferences if for those who are paying close Attention because as we're betting on these games, we care about what the coaches are saying especially when they're reclaiming play calling duty, he wanted to get Shawn Watson off to a faster start. He wanted to incorporate more things that the sean was comfortable with from playcalling perspective he wanted to get moving outside the pocket a little bit more. He wanted to start a little bit faster into games and virtually none of that happened in the week four. Game. Sean. Look Terrible. The start the game did not look comfortable the offense struggled. So all these things he was trying to fix didn't work out. But my bigger concern Chris is just like this guy as he was calling plays the one thing that I'm going to take most away from him is from his tenure down in in in Houston because I thought the prior GM. Rick Smith actually did a good job. So I didn't think Bill O'Brien, should've come in forced rick out of a job and taken over there but. In the Games first three-quarter. So quarters one, two, three, no team ran more often on first and ten than bill. O'Brien Houston Texans that to me is the single biggest thing that I'm going to take away from what he did. I have lots of other criticisms of his play calling I have lots of other criticisms about what he did as a GM, but how in this day and age with especially with the Shawn Watson is your quarterback for several seasons. Can you have these? Single, highest run rate on first and ten plays through the game. First three-quarters absolutely terrible and it's like It's like he had area foster for the last ten years instead of ten years ago exactly exactly and the other thing too. If you WANNA talk sports betting here for a second Bill O'Brien was the biggest sports betting bully that there was in the NFL and let me explain what that means when they were favored in Games. They had an extremely high win loss record. I think the fourth highest in the NFL and they covered at a very high percentage is not going to sound high but fifty seven percent was what his cover rate was. When he was favored, that's doesn't sound high but that actually is for teams that are favored one of the highest in the NFL when he was an underdog. He only covered thirty percent of his games. They had a terrible win loss record. He was one of the worst in the NFL from cover rate from a win loss rate as an underdog. So these are things like if a team has winning records and they're generally a good team on the field there onfield product is generally solid then they should be able to do better when they're underdogs with this speaks to me more than anything is the fact that playing in the AFC south for so many years they've played a relatively easy schedule. So when they? Step up in class and half to play stronger opponents they end up getting waxed they lose they failed exceed expectations. That's what we need an underdog to do. We need a team that's not expected to win games to exceed expectations and pull some of these games out whether you're covering them but losing or whether hopefully in the case of a football team and the owner you're winning these games are being able to upset some opponents and he was not able to do that whatsoever. One of the worst in the NFL, let me ask you one other quick thing. About Bill O'Brien and this is about the combination of GM head coaching job I know you don't keep up with the NBA but we just saw doc rivers lose his job with the clippers and he was a guy that at once was installed to run the team beat the GM and be the head coach. We saw it with Tom Tibidot would minnesota seems like we saw was Stan Van Gundy teams hire these guys to be GM's coaches and what we learn more often than not is that it is two different skill sets building a team and coaching. A team are two different skill sets and yes it worked out in the past Mike Holmgren years ago I recall in Seattle Jimmy. Johnson famously in Dallas. But do you think that bill? O'Brien is I mean history always repeats itself. So we'll probably see it again when somebody really wants to be hired, they want ultimate power but do you think now this is another example of a mistake mistakes made when you decide okay we will allow this coach to build his roster also yes, absolutely. I, think I think in very few cases should a guy be able to? Put. So many fingerprints on a roster I really like the division of power and the thought process behind having different guys responsible for their different things in working collectively as a unit with a singular goal in mind set understanding what wins in today's NFL but having separate duties because it's too difficult for one guy to take on that many duties fourteen especially trying to make moves in season the end up getting a little bit. Too Greedy. They end up thinking that they know what offense needs. Let's say and so he's going after these certain pieces and that's really not what this team actually needs and they're neglecting perhaps the other side of the ball and their defense has been terrible ironically that promoting Romeo Cornell from defensive staff. That's a terrible defense for several years now. So they're just filling that vacancy with somebody who isn't necessarily like the best candidate to. Lead the team from that perspective. But in terms of Bill O'Brien like I don't think he should ever have another job where he is head coach slash gm now I, think maybe he goes back to college I don't know exactly what he does, and again we said this many times before we're not critical of the people themselves were critical of the jobs that they do and so it's safe to lop and heap a lot of. This criticism upon him because he has not done a very good job at what he's been responsible for. But I absolutely, I mean, I even think that it is supremely difficult just to be a head coach that also calls offensive plays very few people are actually able to do that and do that well understanding and having worked for some guys who break down the often aside of the ball and working with play calls and figuring. Out Strategies to win on offense that is a very difficult job to do and to do well and to do it weakened and week out at a supremely excellent level. Let alone all the other responsibilities that a head coach has an all the other hats that he must wear. So I mean more power to those guys who are able to do those things well, and call offensive plays an coach, a team but how are You going to manage the whole roster as well and be in charge of that it's it was set up to fail from the beginning but certainly, you're giving too much power to a guy who doesn't deserve it in Bill O'Brien. All right. Let's move onto the huge story of the day, and that is the reigning defensive player of the year. Stefan Gilmore. It is reported that he has tested positive for covid nineteen. Now we know. The. Patriots just played the chiefs in a mass in a massive game on a national stage. Cam. Newton, their star quarterback was out because of covid nineteen, the game was played any way. We're now seeing these pitcher surface of Gilmore and mahomes talking after the game freaks everybody out What do you make of this story? What do you make of the way? The NFL has handled this because they've now open themselves up to. Real criticism for them playing that game, and obviously if there becomes a big spread between these teams, though it is already reported that the chiefs tests all came back negative. This morning that doesn't necessarily mean they're out of the woods by any means as we're learning with the other team, the Tennessee Titans, which we still don't know if they're going to be able to play. So so far we've got the Patriots. We've got the titans. Titans. Didn't play Patriots did and now we've got this Gilmore News and we're just bracing for more bad news which hopefully does not come down the pike. What do you make about the NFL handling all this? Okay. So I'm going to go on a little bit of diatribe here and It's it's out of love that I'm doing this because I absolutely love the NFL absolutely love analyzing and watching the NFL. I have for decades and I have a big problem with this and let's forget what your preconceived notions are on wearing masks or how deadly this viruses or how dangerous this viruses. Okay. I in my opinion, all that is totally irrelevant. The only thing that matters right now is what the NFL stance is as it relates to this virus and it's very clear that if you test positive, you have to go into this isolation period, and if you have symptoms you're out for an extended period of time. The that's all that really matters here. It doesn't matter what we think of the virus matters what the NFL's policy is. But what we do know about this virus is the fact that it is. Very, contagious number one and it has an incubation period number two and so if you. Realize that those two things are fact based. Then it was irresponsible to allow the New England Patriots to play this game against the Kansas City chiefs. There's no other way to phrase it an my opinion you have news out this morning, not only that Stefan Gilmore obviously has tested positive now but the fact that according to a report. Quote Gilmore may not be terribly surprised to learn that he tested positive. Gilmore wasn't close contact with Newton in the days leading up to his positive test. So you know if that is true, this is this is reported. Reportedly but if that is true. You'll. Be doing the wrong thing with how were trying to identify these potential cases and taking the steps necessary to complete the season i. don't care how long the season takes I just want to see it played in full. The NFL does have a big advantage here because Thi may is only interacting with one other team in the span of thirteen days right like you go. From a Monday game I from Sunday game and the Patriots case. Obviously, it was a Monday but you go from a Sunday game to the following game, which is next Sunday, and then you have another six days before you play another team. So you have this window, it's not like the NBA where you're you know when they were leading up to it obviously they were in. A bubble, but you're playing a team every other day, and it's a different team in those types of things are hockey does stuff like that you know, I, know baseball plays in series and you're playing the same team for a few different games. But in this case with football, you have so many days apart we need to be able to do a better job of figuring. These things out unclear. It's clear with titans, how this thing can spread and can take a little while to develop, and so I think the NFL I. I don't know if hitting the pause button right now and taking a break to figure out what the policies are. This is like the reset time period or we just need to re analyze the policies here for how Players that have been exposed to this. Can then re reap can play games I mean just because they aren't testing positive does not mean they couldn't be contagious with this thing that could it be inside of them right now at that point time, which is clearly what was going on with Gilmore so hopefully, nobody. Think about this war and they're in a frigging locker room. Get a more confined area to put fifty-three massive men. You know me they're in a visiting locker room no less right. So it's not even like they're huge plush one they're in a visiting locker room an this guy is a major player on that team. There's no telling how many people are exposed to this just from having it much less all the team personnel and everybody. Else, that's on a plane right now. Absolutely and I was even I even read here that he flew on a separate plane. He that led his close contact with Cam Newton led him to fly to Kansas. City on a second plane went about twenty other people who had close contact with Newton. So you can't have a situation they put those people in a different locker room. Exactly, they had contact with him. Now they're reintroducing these people back into the general population of the team just because he tested negative the day of the the morning of the game, right or the the night before they played that game we're finding out it's Wednesday morning. So if we do the math here, I think you take the tests and then generally speaking I could be wrong but I'm pretty sure you find out that night like some of the test they come back that night. So he took the test on Sunday. They find out Sunday night that he doesn't have it the I'm guessing he took another test on Monday but I don't know that they would have found out that results of that test prior to Monday night. But at that point in time, he did not have it. So he was cleared he was not testing positive. Let's say it wasn't that he didn't have it. He wasn't testing positive. So he was able to play in that game, but the sample that came back Tuesday night. Okay. which would have been taken on Tuesday morning. showed up as being positive, which is why this morning we're hearing this news break. So he plays patch mahomes in his talking to Patrick Mahomes, and then he gets tested Tuesday morning back in New England, and that's the test that ultimately shows up as being positive. So this thing clearly has an incubation period you clearly can spread it before you have symptoms. Sometimes. You have symptoms. You don't even know that you have it Andrew testing positive. So I'm not trying to like throw the whole kabosh douse this fire of the NFL season out I'm just saying we have to think a little be a little bit more forward thinking about the potentials for spreading this thing and how we can change the protocols to avoid. Having a situation where it spreads too much. But let's not forget also one other thing. We can't just go out and criticize and say, well, Oh my God, the Patriots definitely infected the chiefs, and so this is why the chiefs are testing positive I hope none of the cheese test positive but we know that the quarterback who was on their practice squad. Who was simulating what Cam Newton was doing in the week leading up to this game also tested positive. So who knows what who he might be ultimately of spread this to that then some guys on the chiefs ended up testing positive. So we can't necessarily definitively say it was from the Patriots y any chiefs May in the future test positive here but. I mean I'd love to be talking about something more uplifting and exciting because there's so many things to discuss in the NFL right now. Hopefully, we can change gears but. Important for the League to I think in my opinion, modify their protocols a little bit so that we can play this entire season. No matter how long it takes to get there because the one thing is clear if you're listening to the ringer, NFL show you like football potentially you love. and. I. Do as well and I know you do to Chris and there's nothing more that we want to see than to play this season out in full. WanNa, ride everybody today's show brought to you by. Fan. Duel.

Let's talk about some actual football Washington has made the change away from Dwayne Haskins this week What did you see from Dwayne Haskins and do you think that this is the right move? Fair move is this move warranted I think it is warranted. Look. There was no loyalty to Duane Haskins by the guys that are coaching this team right now. Ron. Rivera Scott Turner. They didn't draft Wayne Haskins it was the previous regime. The problem for them. Obviously, they wanted Twain Haskins to work out and who knows maybe he'll fix some of his issues over the next several weeks in get back on track, and maybe he'll be thrust into a game due to injury or some other situation and we'll end up playing better but I have absolutely heard the whisperings that Dwayne Haskins was. Very close to being yanked and It was so serious. And so close that we actually bet on a number of Dwayne Haskins under props in last week's game simply from the fact that we believe that there was a very good chance Twain Haskins got pulled at halftime or at some other point during the course of this game right. So let's tie into sports betting momentarily we are betting against Wayne Haskins playing the entire game in the only way you can pretty much do that is to bet under on a lot of his props so we're seeing low. Underpass attempts underpass completions thrown under yards unlike all these different variety of props you can bet on a quarterback. What ends up happening though in this game so they're losing fourteen did nothing his first four drives of the game were punt turnover? It wasn't an interception it wasn't his fault they turned it over but nevertheless upon a turnover upon an misfield gold, right? So they have zero points on the board however, right before the half they drive seventy five yards against somewhat of a prevent defense and. Score a touchdown and as a result of that drive in my opinion, Dwayne Haskins is allowed to play out the rest of the game had he not in? This is just conjecture. But how do you not seventy five yards scored a touchdown? I do believe that they probably would have made a change during the course of that second half. A few is absolutely looking horrendous but I think. It's the issue would be why would make this move now? As because they are not getting the response from Haskins to coaching they're asking him to do certain things to improve certain things to make these types of reads to make these progressions to. Process things at this type of speed and he is not doing it. He's not making the changes from week to week what the coaches want him to do. That is why you end up making the move. It's not because while this guy isn't quite as talented as we thought and maybe we can coach him up the coaching it up was not working there was. No ability to coach him up in their opinion, and so they thought he just needs time to develop. He needs to process the game at a faster speed needs to make his reads a little quicker. Let's give him the time that he needs on the bench. Maybe we'll see if he ends up getting any more time later on in the season. What about Kyle Alan? I mean, Kyle in obviously came from Carolina with these guys they have familiarity with him. They've won some games with them and they've they've not going to say he's a savior by any stretch of the imagination but He could probably operate the offense. No worst Dwayne Haskins right now is he is talented as Duane. Haskins was a talented as as a passer when dwayne is showcasing those glimpses of actually doing what he's supposed to be doing and hit those passes no kyle does not have the the level of talent that Dwayne Haskins does when are playing at their peak potential but this kyle understand what the coaches want him to do on certain plays in the reeds to make. A little bit better than Dwayne. That is my guest in this situation and as a result I think that this is a lateral move at worst I think that this offense could see a slight uptick. I don't believe Kyle Allen is a long-term answer but I haven't seen I I do think I guess I. Could say this I've seen enough to be able to. See a rise that but we'll see how we works in this offense with this team and the rest of the people around him I. Think Washington is absolutely in the quarterback market in the twenty twenty one draft. Let's talk about another team that had already made a quarterback change. It was actually a great week I. Think Probably, for Mitch trubisky because the Bekker's offense with Nick foles did not look great at all and why was that and what does it mean for the future of Nick Foles at quarterback? Are we GONNA do the? Okay. Now, we gave the GIG to foles. He loses a couple of games were right back to Mitch Trubisky. What did you make of? And I think it's so funny. I. Keeps reading all this stuff about how awesome nick foles is as a replacement or when you put him in versus when he starts at it is like this stark contrast. Was it opponent base last week you know the bloom came off the rose pretty quick on the falls experience after he came in and lead them to victory then they started the next week and they look like crap. No they did and look I think some of this has to do with coaching and I spend a lot of time watching tendencies of various different coaches at playcallers particularly on the offensive side of the ball on an analyzing kind of what they're doing and I came away very frustrated. Obviously Nick foles did not have a good game and did not play very well but. Look at some of these statistics here in the first half of the game. Against the Chicago Bears Sorry against the Indianapolis Colts. So from this bears offense they basically on early downs in the first half have a near fifty, fifty split of play call. If they called one more rush attempt instead of a pass, they would have been dead on fifty fifty. So we're talking about an even split as close to even as possible without being even and when they pass the ball, the average eight point nine yards per. Attempt when they ran the ball one point, five yards per carry when they passed the ball sixty seven percent success rate when they ran the ball twenty percent success rate when they passed the ball plus point three four EPA when they ran the ball minus point three, eight EPA now that one point five yards per carry on I first half Russia's on early downs the worst of any team in the NFL last week you're talking about. A team that clearly has a stark contrast between what they're able to do when they're passing the ball versus running the ball nick foles significantly increased the ceiling of some of these past plays because they'll all those rates, the EPA, the yards per attempt to success rate were better than what they were doing the first three weeks when they were passing the ball in that situation and. The rushing was worse across the board as well whether it was the EPA, the yards per carry or the success rate than what they did the first three weeks. That is a result of the fact that you're playing a very stingy in difficult run defense with the force buckner. Now, there for the colts and this team is better against Iran then most of the other opponents at. The bears face. So you can't just go out there and the bears previously in those first three weeks on early downs in the first half were a fifty fifty split with play calls. So you can't just take the same kind of play calling philosophy in strategy from the first three weeks with Mitch. Trubisky and just shoves it ahead to week four when you're playing much better run. Defense and you're you have a quarterback. Now that is better capable of throwing the football down the field and as a result of these struggles on early down in the first half, you're being forced into more third downs with longer distance to go and I don't care what quarterback you are across the board. Even if you're Patrick Mahomes, those are more difficult situations to have success on. The defense knows you're passing and you have further to go to gain that I down. So you might be able to have patrick convert at a reasonable rate in some of those situations, but that's not going to be a strong of a rate long-term as if he was in a better situation on third down a third short, third, a medium where you could do a a more. Complex variety of things that the defense is going to know exactly what to expect. The other thing that disappointed me Chris from a coaching perspective with the First Game Nick foles was this ridiculous tempo that the Chicago bears utilize in that first half of the game they literally operated at the slowest pace of any team in the NFL they averaged over thirty three seconds per snap. In the first half of that game there were zero way to get nick foles into rhythm here by just slowly getting to the line of scrimmage in doing the same things over and over and over and over and over again it's just. The the coaches need to see the issues. First of all, you need to predict things better from a game planning perspective that goes into your game preparation for that week and the types of things that you're going to call. It also means that you have to incorporate better backup plans as you lead into the game with different variants based upon this opponent that you're facing. Well, if this isn't GonNa work, then we got switch to other strategy and we've already planned out that strategy we're going to. Shift to and we're GONNA do that pretty quickly in the game because we know if we get behind, it's very unlikely. WE'RE GONNA RALLY TO WIN Games. I know they were able to do that against the Atlanta Falcons the prior week. But for the most part you, we know that teams with the lead at halftime win eighty percent of the game. So you gotTA figure out how we'RE GONNA make whatever changes we need to make quickly if something's not working so that we can lead at halftime. And they did not do that. They continued to slow methodical boring pace where Nick foles was in no rhythm they never decided. Well, you know what? This isn't working out right now let's just go up temple real quick for a drive or two and see what happens like be experimental try some things out even if you're not forecasting this ahead of time that you might want to do that, try to do it like spur of the moment in the heat of battle and you need to be a little watch. The fact that these Ron are being successful. So stop calling them at fifty fifty clip like let's shift a little bit more to the passes so. Look Nick foles he he may not be like this savior for the Chicago Bears But this coaching needs to improve very quickly or will never see the ceiling that Nick foles might be able to bring to this offense. Warren. VOM, Nick foles agent I'm clipping, out that entire edge. that. Was Unbelievable. It Ain't is fault. So that is what I take away from it though like they made so many mistakes they whether it was playcalling pays a game whatever how can we know if this was the better option truly with Foale's even though all the de goes on him you kind of down in a way that explains like how could you know if Nick foles is the best option here? We know Nick foles is a better quarterback than Mitch trubisky come on. We've seen Nick foles be in a great situation. And we saw him perform I mean this guy is the same guy outplay Tom Brady and a frigate Super Bowl for God's sakes we know that if you set him up correctly, nick foles is good enough to win games including the biggest games. So it stands to reason it's probably not. Nick, foles fault that the bears offense look the way it did as much as we do want to put it all on the quarterback no matter. Yeah and I look he needs to play better and there's some that looked terrible and so I'm not absolving him if any blame here, he did not look great either. But when you're in these obvious passing situations and you're being set up. To fail by some of this play calling I think that that is going to cause problems and just big picture holistically about the bears quarterback situation I can tell you this. The Chicago bears were hoping that Nick foles was going to be there starter. They did not comment and bring him in the off season and pay money to get him there because they were expecting Mitchell trubisky to. Be the better option a quarterback Nick foles was just going to be a super ridiculously expensive backup and we gonna just ride Mitchell trubisky all the way through. They saw Mitchell trubisky enough to know he's probably not our long-term answer. Let's get Nick foles in here and I can I'm thinking that there's no doubt if nick foles has regular off season with the access to the team and The coaching and the personnel in a full preseason that Nick foles is probably the starter in week one as opposed to what ends up happening here I realize it's easier to move to Nick foles as opposed to start him week one, and then see him struggle and then go back to trubisky. I realized that would be would have been very difficult to do, but I think that Nick foles. At quarterback and he would have beat out Mitchell trubisky in a full normal offseason. All right. Let's get to one of the very interesting things that happened in week for which was you had this west coast team playing an east coast game, which was Seattle versus the dolphins. You see this huge line move in the dolphins detection and they played the seahawks tougher than a lot of people thought but ended up losing what? Does it say about the dolphins what does it say about Seattle that they can play what appeared to be an off game and they can still win fairly convincing against Miami and win am I gonNA, get to see the two man I wanna see to in there I was so depressed when that story came out that they were starting fitzpatrick again like what's the point? Let's get to some reps I WANNA watch him. Well. I. Don't know exactly talking about to I. Don't know you know he he might be healthy enough to be doing everything but I don't know if his body internally is fully healed and they obviously drafted where they did because he's long long-term future at quarterback and you WanNa make sure I think go out of your way to make sure this is a long term plan with him a quarterback that he is. All the way there. So those guys would have far better of an estimation of as to whether he's ready for that or read though it sounded like he was available that it was a choice that they were making. He is available, but they are choosing to start fitzpatrick and I'd you gotTa Wonder Look Borough looks like an awesome pick. Herbert looks like an awesome pick like they better have been right about to. 'cause. What they gave up on it and where did they are so they might WanNa just bide their time. It'd make sure because Lord knows if you're Miami, you're watching highlights just like everybody else and like Jeez Louise Look at these two other kids that got drafted quarterback they look pretty good immediately. No, they did there. They've been very impressive I. Think Especially Arbor dealing with the pass. Russian the blitz and throwing the ball over the top and attacking aggressively and being on target with some of those deep throws. I. Was Supremely excited to watch what he did. I was very surprised to see him have that level of success against the bucks last week on the road playing without multiple offensive lineman starters playing without Mike. Williams. Your number one deep threat down there but D-. Dialing I, got us all I got us off track. Yeah that's that's good I mean this is fun to talk about rookie quarterbacks in what they're doing. So I've no problem with that but getting back to the Dolphin's here my issue with them was something that we discussed with House on the Friday show after the Miami. Dolphins beat the Jacksonville Jaguars and this is GRANDPA GAILY GRANDPA Chan Gailey. Their play caller we nickname GRANDPA gaily because this guy gets so conservative in these games and that's what actually costs the dolphins in this game. Now, if you just look at red zone stats, you'll see that they didn't get into the red zone nearly as often but they had five full field dries where they started at or inside their own twenty, five yard line and they walked away and. Drove the ball all the way down to the Seattle eleven eleven twenty, three, twenty, five, and twenty seven. fullfilled drives and they walked away with field goals on every single. One of those five drives that absolutely cannot happen if you're going to upset Russell Wilson's Seahawks, the Seattle is playing right now the aggression they are showing on offense their willingness to go for it on fourth down their willingness to throw the ball down the field. These are things that most teams are not doing and you cannot strategize and play. This team with a conservative mindset because you're setting yourself up to fail, you're behind April when you do something like that against a team that is willing to take those other risks that is willing to not pont that doesn't want to kick field goals at once a score touchdowns like all of those factors go into play here not to mention that Russell Wilson, is way better the Ryan Fitzpatrick in that the. Seattle seahawks have better receivers than do the Miami Dolphins and all these other factors that they're just a better team overall warrant. It's it's the craziest thing to like every time I see somebody talking about Chan Gailey it it trips me out because you know as they guy was the frigging cowboys coach in nineteen. Ninety eight. And then, and then he left he was the offense coordinator with the dolphins in two thousand. That's twenty years ago and then. Time at Georgia tech and that he's at Kansas City then he shows backup, he's the head coach of the bills for two years. Then he shows back up and he's like a offense coordinator for the jets for a year and that was two thousand and sixteen. Four years later, he's offensive coordinator for the dolphins like it is bizarre. Bizarre, I didn't really understand that coaching higher. And that's all I. that's the kindest way I can put it. And and right now we're seeing kind of the implications of that I i. think they obviously viewed him as a guy who could optimize some of the things that maybe would be able to do and some of the blocking upfront in some of the strategies but this is not a coach who is ready for football in twenty twenty. He's not a coach who's ready to do what is necessary in twenty twenty to keep up with the pack. So to speak things are trending in a more analytical direction. Now than they ever have been before teams were optimizing some of their play calling in their decision making to try to do things that are more in line with what the data is actually showing that they should be doing and you can't be walking in the reverse direction of that expect to have success particularly when you don't have the most talented roster in the world and you're fighting these uphill battles so but it's not always about young and old in that case. Warren, and I bring to you the Detroit Lions. Their head coach is very young and yet and some people like them as a sleeper in that NFC north and yet here they are one and three blown lead after blown lead. Matt Patricia He's not sixty eight years old. So what's his excuse? Well, there is no excuse for Matt Patricia I know that things have not gone well with him as the coach but I'm going to point the finger to at. An issue that I've seen in the NFL and it's not so much. The case with Dan. Quinn. Dan Quinn's defense is just terrible and I know Detroit has had some injuries, but this was actually a problem with Pete. Carroll for several years well, more than several when he was with the Seattle Seahawks is a problem for some defensive-minded head coaches that then have influence over the offensive game plan and I can't think of any other reason why the Detroit lions are changing their strategy and philosophy in the second half of games particularly those where they build up a first-half lead like they've done this. season. And like they did last season because I wrote about this in my book after evaluating the twenty, one, thousand, nine, hundred season when I looked at what Matthew Stafford was doing on first downs in the first half vs first downs in the second half and how substantially more conservative this offense was getting I wrote about it and I warned forewarned in this case that they have to get a more aggressive strategy on first downs in the second half of play because in the first half, they're more pass heavy and they're attacking aggressively down the field and Stafford was balling out absolutely ballin out. And he's been doing that so far this season when they have played with a lead in the second half on first downs, they decide to go seventy five percent run those runs averages three and a half yards per carry while they're passes average eight point eight yards per attempt with an eighty-three percent success rate. Mind you the only way that they've built these leads. So they have the opportunity to call plays with the lead in the second half is by A. Aggressive. Passing I approach on first downs in the first half of game. So they're passing to build the lead. Then they decide we're just GONNA go conservative in the second run the ball there is a massive split between efficiency when they pass versus Ron yet there voluntarily nobody's forcing than they themselves are deciding based upon play calls to go seventy five percent run is absolutely ridiculous. This is why they've blown these leads. They have blown a double digit lead. Do you think? I mean it seems so simple. You even wrote about this is you mentioned warm before the frigate season. They gotTA know. Right they have access to this. They understand the way they are calling games and yet they do it over and over again it's a what would if you were trying to come up with an excuse for it? Let me put you on the other side of this if you're trying to come up with an excuse for it, they hear this and you. Say, look. You're you're calling seventy five percent runs on first down and the same thing happens every frigging week like what can what would what would a plausible excuse be that they are that the defenses are then setting up in the second half to guard against that passed? Therefore, we feel our best chances is running the I mean what would it be? Well that's a good thought but I think that we're giving too much credit to the fact that they actually know this because I don't. While I work for some teams and I communicate with some guys. I don't talk to the Lions and I don't know that they read my book and I don't have confirmation that they are factoring this into how they were GonNa change their strategies after last year heading into this year to actually do better this season and I know a Lotta guys were expecting them to be a better team this year they have Matthew Stafford, they lost all those close one score games. They were better team with Stafford. They obviously played a lot of the season without him. That's going to be much better this year but we see that yes, they've had injuries on both sides of the ball and Golladay hasn't. Played every single game this season and you know they're defensive had injuries. But when you have play calling this, my only thought could be that this is driven by Matt. Patricia and a desire to get a little bit more rest for his defense and settle in defensively and try to not make mistakes offensively and this conservative philosophy that. So many of these defensive coaches inject I mean I don't see if I'm an offense coordinator. Why would I suddenly get conservative in the second half of games? We're not talking about like the final five minutes of a game here we're talking about right out the gates in the third quarter. So this is the reason why they're blowing all these leads I, mean. Maybe they'll maybe they read my book, but maybe they'll listen to this episode of the Ringer podcast. I don't know what they're GONNA do but they've blown a seventeen point lead and eleven point lead a fourteen point lead. No other team is blown more. Double digit leads through four weeks in the NFL history there on a by this week but they basically been taking a by every single game after they build these double digit leads so far this season. and. I would like nothing more than to see them come out after the by having listened to this episode and decide we're going to stay a little bit more aggressive when we have a lead in the third quarter of a game and see where that gets us. I mean God. If nothing else just say let's see where it gets us. I mean like what else could happen what else could go wrong? You just run lead over to blow elise. About. Are Bad. The NFC East is comparatively from other divisions and other years because they are the of every single joke three, twelve and one as a division Give me a little perspective here. Is it really as miserable as it appears to be with the NFC east in terms of quality of team? And when people are saying, Hey, it's going to be a six game win team that ends up. You know big their representative in the in the playoffs How about is it? Because I know you're always looking at opponents, etc ticket. So many other things into context on. This is this really one of the most miserable divisions we've ever seen. Well, you know I don't know if I could say it's one of the most miserable. We've ever seen certainly certainly, we're looking at a team sorry a division that has done very poorly in terms of winning games. Now, we know that the cowboys and the Eagles are better than the record is indicating they've been ravaged with injuries for the Eagles case is primarily injuries and just the performance of the quarterback look we. Saw Him actually play better last week in week four out in. San. Francisco and Primetime on Sunday night with none of his receivers like he's he was doing what he was doing back in The end of twenty nineteen where he's playing with nobody this catching yards like nobody has five hundred yards for him as a receiver but he's still winning games getting this team to the playoffs and I remember on the show. Last week we were asking is Carson Wentz, a bad quarterback and I'm saying give him time like let's see what happens because. I. Know that he's better than the what he was playing the first three weeks and he showed that is is he still is he playing perfect playing back to the level of caliber that he could be at? No I. Still think he has room to improve some things. But when this team gets healthier on both sides of the ball, they are going to be a much better team and I don't think that we're going to see this team like this walkover joke of the NFL where there Oh, two and one to start the season the cowboys are. Different because I know you're frustrated as a fan I think this is a team that needs to. Just Res Reprocessed some of their coaching decisions and get better production and health from the roster game process what offered vent. Chris. All right. Emmanuel Wacho works for Fox former linebacker. He tweeted something out that. Honestly sent me directly to my bathroom to vomit excessively for an hour straight said cowboys fan your defense is terrible because you're defensive coordinator shouldn't be an NFL defensive. Mike. Nolan hired Mike McCarthy in five as his office coordinator with the forty niners. Nolan hadn't been defensive coordinator since two thousand fourteen in his last three seasons as the Falcons defensive coordinator. Dave ranked twenty, fourth twenty, seventh and last look. What am I supposed to do here? While your defense wasn't if there's any at there's any. Silver lining you're you're used to about defense because your defense wasn't really good last season. But I can't I can't take a guy tweeting out. Hey, here's here's your coaches. He hadn't coached in six years and the last three times he did coach he sucked. Psycho. Current and I know I know you don't love hearing that obviously but I will say that I also saw a clip from Daniel Jeremiah where he was showcasing that a lot of effort and plays taken off by some of the defenders on this team and they themselves made some comments after the game about how it's unacceptable that we're playing this way with the lack of effort on that side of the football and nobody can make you play harder than you. Right like you just have to choose that I'm GonNa put good stuff. On Film and I'M GONNA at least try hard as playing this game as best. I can on every single play and they obviously weren't doing that so far. This season will that alone be enough to offset the defensive scheme and compensate for the injuries I have no idea we're going to find out if they actually start trying hard but that's the first step that you can take here along with this, what I call, the reprocessing of some of their scheme fits in getting Mike Nolan, some comfort level with who these guys are. And what they can do keep in mind there was no ability to play preseason game. So you're trying to fit guys into different spots and give them responsibilities, but you don't know if they're going to be capable of doing that until you actually see them in a game and that's harder to do on the defensive side of the ball than the often society. The ball because defense is so much reactionary and so you've got okay we're playing this team and they might try to do these types of things like these reverses and I. Don't know if this guy's going to be capable of aligning where I wanted to and still make those plays and I've had zero knowledge until I actually see what happens when he tries to do that. So I can guarantee you like next week they're going to do something a little bit differently with those guys where you're right Mike Nolan should be gone. Okay. To make adjustments. Cowboys are always going to be the big story of their game. No matter what because they are on TV every single week, a premier franchise that being said. What if the browns are really good Is that possible I know that the cowboys defense is disgraceful I know that. Okay. Let's get that out of the way. Our the BROWNS is it possible? The browns are really good. Yes it is I mean I thought that the browns were good I I was betting them over there. Wind stuff to start before the season even. Worn I know Seattle is I know the browns are I. Mean I know Seattle is I know the rams are that's who they played week one the falcons are dismal and that was a crazy comeback and I know a common refrain they could be in four, but it's not like they lost a rat teams you know what I'm saying like. The their losses are not too ridiculous. Not Ridiculous losses. If we conclude that the browns are actually good look, the browns are good. They're not great. Their quarterback is not the guy that you could just strap everything onto his back and say win me these games but their system and how they're doing things and the talent overall that they have. There is good enough to win Games especially with the coaching that they're getting. So I like the browns. Let me just tell you this about your defense. Okay. So far this season by my metrics, you'll played the second toughest schedule of opposing offenses that any team. Has played this year and over the rest of the season, you're about to tie for the second. Sorry for the easiest schedule of opposing offenses the rest of the way. So your defense has played very tough offenses and there are about to play offenses that struggle a lot more the rest of the season. So Hara I think that there is a silver lining into what your defense is going to look like down the road here and I don't think you should give up hope or fire your defense coordinator right now if there is a better answer on the staff. They know the staff better than I do I'm sure there. They might be thinking about him but. I don't know that the better answer is right there. In the building we'll see I mean look Dan Queen gave up play calling duties mid season last year, and the defense got a lot better so I'm I'm hoping that they are open minded and trying to think of creative ways to improve their coaching. Every team should be doing a lot of self scouting every single week of the season. All right. Let me ask you a spread question before we hit this Thursday night game. So I read this fact the other day about over unders and how it's playing out so. Far. Through three four weeks of the season. Now, typically with anything whether it against the spread home road, we look up at the end and it's not a massive difference be off a fifty percent they usually all kind of even out but there's GonNa be a Lotta unders that hit on early games for this thing to even out because it has started off blazing it is twenty, eight and seven the overs have hit in the noon games so far this season is there anything to that in your mind and my second question is knowing that it does always kind of even out. Do I star slamming early game under Snell because the lines are going to become inflated 'cause there it's twenty, eight and seven. You almost never see that in a in. With any kind of various terms of win-loss were one side hitting that more money off than the other? What do we make of this? Well so a couple of things number one where we go and isolate out like just the noon games or just the Thursday night games and things of that nature like I think you've definitely increase the level of variance there and there's different patterns that. You'll have benchley be able to spot in any type of you sample size of games, and so you stripping those out like there's no rhyme or reason why? Though one o'clock games would go over more than a four o'clock game right? Like you could make logical reasons why maybe Thursday night game we'll go over more because a shorter prep time for a defense to prepare for the offense or things of. That nature but you can't make logical reasons to that. Are that are fact based and sound to say why? More one? PM Games going over then four PM game. So to me that's just pure variants and there's nothing nothing further than that. I agree that it has been at a high rate but to your bigger point and your broader point of you know maybe you just bang the unders because. It's got to even out the the response to that is we have seen adjustments made in the betting market this week to account for that, and I'm going to talk a lot more about this on the Friday show. So if you're really interested in hearing how this is factoring in than I, highly encourage you turn on tune into the Friday show with house, but certainly big just big picture statement What was the main theme of last week during the week? It was tons of people from all walks of life whether you're just ESPN. You're talking about things or your. More local reporters or anything. The points are up has been an all time high wise. The reason for that and everybody's conjecturing theorizing as to why the reason is a lot of them aren't entirely correct about that. But that's fine. Everybody is basically talking about the big thing that scoring his up. So what are the odds makers do this week? They're going to inflate the lines knowing that even you know mom and pop who want to place a bet on the game of read the newspaper and turn on the news and seeing the mainstream media talking about points being high and overs cashing, and so they're just going to start betting these and so yes, absolutely looking to. Fade that at some point like if you bet every if you chose to bet every single game under the total, like would you actually make money this week because you haven't in prior week but would this be the week that you could make money? It is possible I will say that based upon my modeling. Books definitely have made a massive adjustment from last week to week. All right. Last thing what are you looking forward to most in bucks bears which is the best Thursday night game we've had so far for sure. Yeah. Look the Chicago bears they've played a lot of offenses that have struggled. I think every single one of the offenses that the Chicago Bears Defense has played has ranked twenty first or worst. With three of the four ranking bottom ten in the NFL now, they have to go and play the Tampa Bay buccaneers. Now, I still don't know as of this point in time who actually is going to be available for them from a wide receiver perspective. So what what the skill players that Tom Brady is going to have to to access I? Know that OJ Howard tore his Achilles, I believe in. That last game, and so he's out for the season but you know you've got other wide receivers that are there that are key contributors that aren't quite at one hundred percent and we also know that we saw Justin Herbert have some success going deep on these guys in attacking them aggressively down the field. But what is the Chicago Bears Mindset from a coaching perspective so I think the biggest thing that. You can look forward to in terms of my take on this game is if you're analyzing it study what the Chicago bears do on first downs in the first half, you can just I mean I do it. When I'm watching these games, you can also look at statistics you can go to websites and look at like the play by play on your apps on your phone and you can see. What the total number of Ron's versus passes are But if you want if you want to chart it, you can just take a little notepad and wait for the bears Davos I down and tick off whether they ran or pass the ball and how many yards they get, and you can find out for yourself. Is this team passing the ball more than fifty percent of the time because they barely did that last week and they haven't done it year today but now they've got a quarterback. Who's more capable of doing that and one thing that we know is it's Tampa Bay buccaneers are very good with the run defense. They have the seventh best run defense in the NFL despite playing the fifth toughest schedule of opposing rushing offenses. This has been a run defense that has been very strong. Actually I'm sorry they have the second best schedule of run defense. They've been very good for years under Todd Bowles the last couple of years having strong run defense and we know that the. CHICAGO BEARS RUN offense does rank bottom ten in the NFL. So what I want to see out of the bears offense is a more aggressive pass for strategy on first downs in the first half to try to keep this game close I can tell you that this line opened with the Chicago bears catching around five points at some spots when when it reopened after last week's games and it is down to the bears catching three three and a half points so the early money is coming in. On the Chicago bears with their defense to try to help slow down the Tampa Bay buccaneers offense, I did mention that the Chicago bears have played very easy offenses. Today they've played the second easiest schedule of opposing offenses. So they do have a step up in class, but can they slow down the bucks offense with Tom Brady and then conversely when Chicago has the ball, will they choose to call plays a little bit more intelligently particularly on first downs in the first half all right. The Buck. I guess all spot in my heart because the very first show that we did Warren when we talked about overreactions in week one and we said do not overreact to the loss of the bucks do not overreact to the loss of the colts neither team has lost since. So I love those teams. Yeah, I. Do I do too. I mean, look I I think that. We have the opportunity in my opinion this season for more teams to turn things around than we have seen in the past just with all the. Questions in the variants in the lack of productivity. Lack of offseason. So this year presents an opportunity that if you started off poorly I, still think you can get things on track if you optimize your coaching in your play calling. And just your performance in effort in the cowboys case like teams can turn things around and we can't overrate one bad performance here. We got to look at the bigger picture and that's why I think is very important to see how these bears coaches call this game warranted the best I'll be listening to you and House on Friday Make sure you're listening to Kevin Clark, and company tomorrow on the Ringer NFL show thanks Warren High Buddy take care. Thanks everybody. Listen to another episode of the Ringer NFL show. We'll talk to you on. Friday.

Landy a podcast and listened to Atlanta on the iheartradio APP on Apple podcasts or wherever you get your podcasts. You are listening to the Dan Patrick Show on Fox sports. Radio. After an Owen Four, start the Texans parted ways with Bill O'Brien yesterday, and he's the most successful coach in team history took them to the playoffs in four of the last five years. And I started to wonder about this with Bill O'Brien. Coaches want control. They're all control freaks and I understand that but you should be a coach. It's hard to be a coach a GM. Now, some have been able to do it. Bill Belichick is able to do it. But Bill O'Brien is not bill belichick. And if he was just Hired on his coaching abilities would he still have that job considering what he's done over the last five years the playoffs for the last five years we can talk about the AFC south being watered down. He still has one those divisions. Bill O'Brien was fired despite leading them to four divisional titles in the last five years. Then you start to look at this since two thousand fifteen, who is one of the most divisional titles by head coach Bill Belichick five Bill O'Brien, and Andy Reid four Sean Payton with three. That's pretty good company there for Bill O. Brun it's Bill O'Brien the GM that's the problem. Because he took over. The job is GM in two thousand nineteen. This past off season, he traded wide receiver Andre Hopkins to the cardinals running back David Johnson in a second round pick. Hopkins leads the NFL and Catches Texans have struggled move the ball. He's had other moves that didn't work out gave up the future for Laremy Tunsil. De re-build now for a team that's Oh in four very difficult schedule first four games. But Firing Bill O'Brien is recognition from ownership that try to something. You know they have to try something new here because they were not going to get as far as they thought, they were going to get and they finally got a quarterback there into Shawn Watson and I've always implored them to get an offensive line. So he doesn't end up like Andrew Luck, you traded away G Andrei Hopkins. We knew that Deandre Hopkins did not want to stay in Houston did not get along with Bill O'Brien and that he was and he wanted to be the highest paid wide receiver. But I gotta get a little bit more for De'andre Hopkins because I need draft picks. And you given up your draft picks. You brought in Laremy Tunsil, which you gave up a lot to bring in Laremy Tunsil. You GotTa Protect Your Shawn Watson I understand that. But if I'm giving up deandre Hopkins who is one of the top three wide receivers I would hope I could get a wide receiver and return or a a number one pick that maybe I could use on a wide receiver somewhere down the line. But Bill O'Brien. You can argue was a good coach. There's no argument about him being a GMI. Thick. Because he made some moves that are going to really impact this team the next couple of years. And Romeo takes over I. Don't know who comes in and takes over this job by the way I asked Peter King this question could you just hire Eric be enemy from the Kansas City. The offensive coordinator and say you're the next head coach of the Texans. Well, there is the anti-tampering policy. And if you're under contract during the season, you're not able to negotiate with somebody. You can't give that job to Eric beyond me right now, if you wanted to the jets couldn't do that. If they're gonNA fire gates, I wonder about what the Falcons are going to do because Arthur blank from what I'm told did not want to be the first owner to fire a coach this season. Well you don't have to worry about that. Now with Bill O'Brien fired and Dan Quinn losing last night to the Green Bay packers and we knew that was going to happen I mean Dan Quinn knows it's not if but when and. It's probably the probably extended a little bit further because. You know unless you have somebody that you can put in there and go this is going to help us. This is an upgrade unless the players stopped playing for this coach. And I don't get that feeling in Atlanta. But from what I was told Arthur blank did not want to be that I guy first owner to go I'm GonNa fire my coach because of the sensitivity of of covid and dealing with all these obstacles these hurdles here but you know after a month now this is business now and Dan Quinn may not last the rest of the season and nobody's going to be surprised there but there will be quite a few openings and Eric B enemy the offensive coordinator with the chiefs is going to probably have his pick and speaking of the chiefs if I'm facing Kansas City. I look at what Bill Belichick is done. The last couple of times he's faced. Patrick Mahomes. He's GonNa. Drop eight defensive backs. He doesn't blitz he just he wants to end. He's done a good job in keeping the numbers reasonable for Patrick Mahomes and I did wonder with the defensive. Last night, if Cam Newton was playing. New England would have won that game in my opinion or at least it would have been really close. Because you had hoyer instead of it was close with them. By the way after watching their performance Cam, Newton job is safe when he does come back. Safer, but the defensive strategy here is. and New England has good secondary. So not everybody when people go, we got our blueprint I up to have a good secondary first of all it helps having a defensive genius invalid Bella, devising all of this but I thought that they did a pretty good job on the road with less than inspiring play from the quarterbacks. and. If you're going to it, you know if you can control the ball. In early on New England ran the ball controlled the ball I don't want Hoyer to make a mistake and then he made a mistake. and. Then you're in trouble but I gotTA keep mahomes off the field as best as you can. So a team that meets Kansas City this year is going to beat them in my opinion by running the football. and. Then what do you do defensively and can you match up with all those weapons and Frustrate Patrick? Mahomes mahomes is just like Kurt Warner when Kurt Warner joins US, Nisa couple years ago and I said, did you like being blitzed when you were quarterbacking the ramps and he said I loved it. Loved it quarterbacks if they know somebody coming that leaves an area open and they love that and Kurt Warner said, I couldn't wait for you to blitz because somebody was always open. I think the Patriots, blitz team twice last night. That was it. As far as Aaron Rodgers, he's making it look easy. And you even if you're a packers fan, you're going who are those guys out there give me a Jones in a Williams and the tight end and never heard of him and Rogers just seems like this is kind of simple. and. It feels like he bought in we bought into Matt Leflore and said all right. Let's try. It is motivated. Yeah. Now. At the end of the year, do we I know Oh man draft a quarterback. He's got a chip on his shoulder I had to say that I know about you, I? Know it does. Yeah. So if that's the case. Everybody. Should be doing that why didn't the steelers do it? They got a guy duct devil in that didn't inspire Ben Rothlisberger I. Don't think did he have a chip on his shoulder? Chip No, it's a chip in my elbow. Yes, mclovin. Yeah but duck Devlin was an undrafted playable know. You don't want snake savvy backwards I and play less I. Think the chiefs would actually showed up and been more wake for that game I feel like it's easy to say they were just like, oh, we got Brian Hoyer barely gonNA play. It was not chiefs last night. Well, they did say that we didn't have time to prepare keep in mind New England. Didn't they had the same amount of time to prepare and had to fly on? Game Day. And then quarantine when they get their testing. And then they go out and play. So no excuses from Kansas City at least New England has one you got you actually got an extra day to prepare for this game club. Is this a blueprint for slowing down mahomes? What you just described could other to like the ravens blitz all the time and get shredded by yeah I I would hate to see you blitz him i. just think if you run and control the clock and limit the number of chances he gets when he's on the field now easier said than done, but it is going to be difficult to beat this team. But if you do think you'll run the ball and I think that your defense will be. Empowered by your secondary. I don't need to put pressure on him as much as just frustrated and make those windows even smaller but we'll talk to Chris Simms a little bit later on loan from football night in America of course, profootballtalk, dot com mclovin what kind of poll question do you have for me? Okay. We had the debate pre show. Who would you start next week if you're the Patriots Brian Hoyer who was fifteen for twenty, four, zero, t ninety or Jarret Stidham who is five for thirteen sixty yards at td and two interceptions. They're playing the broncos. I would probably. Still, start Hoyer, like just go out there and just be simple just play. Don't try to win a game. Let let's just get Outta here with a win and then welcome cam back. Stems not. Afraid. So. Now had two interceptions and had another one overturned but. I like it. I just don't like it. Now because I, you know you have a chance to go to the playoffs with Cam. You're not going to go to the playoffs which aired student right now but I did like that he he looks the part. And I. Think he thinks. In confident of it were just some of those throws where I go. Dude you're you're on the field year with Patrick Mahomes but you're not Patrick Mahomes. That's I liked with both quarterbacks. All right. They're letting them slinging a little bit. This is not just going to be running. I was also watching the packers game and I said yesterday you got to defenses that are porous and you got so offenses that can score points and the over under was fifty six and a half I think and I said this is screaming for better to take the over that's why I would take the under. and. I had to make up for my Miami Dolphins Bet but there I gave you the under for the Green Bay packers and the Atlanta. Falcons you're welcome. What do you have mclovin? Superman and we don't do this on this show. But who's the next coach it's going to get fired? Is it who is more likely Dan Quinn Map attrition. Detroit. More. Adam. Gates in New York. Jets, gas gave him a vote of confidence. I always felt whenever I heard that voted competence that meant you absolutely positively. We're getting fired I. There's no doubt about of course, we're going to keep him. We're GONNA keep him the rest of the season. Okay. Do any of those coaches last the entire season I wonder. Because it I mean Matt Patricia. You can't hold fourth quarter leads. And this is a team that there was a lot of preseason buzz they were GonNa make playoffs. and. It's make the playoffs or no GONNA get fired. And it goes back to remember when I told you. I'd been told that they really like they wanted to take her. But they said in House, the coaching staff new. We have to win this next season and that means with Matthew Stafford and could you trade Matthew Stafford now once again, this was just chatter leading up to the draft and I said if you're going to go all in. Then, go all in and you know Matt Patricia Could Hitch his wagon to to and maybe get an extra years so here. But that that's not going to happen if they don't turn this around Atlanta Dan Quinn, we know is Gone Adam gays I'm assuming is gone especially if they're gonNA have the number one pick in the draft. Yeah. It's interesting that if Detroit Fires Matt Patricia, he'll be the hottest defensive coordinator prospect immediately I think the next day everyone will lineup tire but not as a head coach back as defensive coordinator. You. We just assume that that is that the progression you're really good at your job. Therefore, we're going to put you in a job that we don't know if you're really good at that. McClellan. But they've spent so much money on defense again torched. I. Know It's bizarre and he's defensive-minded. Guy. But? I have no idea who some of these other coordinators out. There are Eric Bana. Me Will Get a job he'll get to choose what job he wants. Club. Here's the Paul I want to put up if you were successful coach and you had your choice of college or pro off a Daboh or more like a Ryan Day or Lincoln Riley, which would you choose and Lincoln Riley. Picardy doesn't start winning to start what what? Cowboy shirt. So now all of a sudden we're going to bring in Lincoln Riley who's not winning at Oklahoma. That doesn't matter instilling Riley. Jerry falls in love. Yeah but he he's got to stay in love with Mike McCarthy for a little while. I don't know he's gotTA gotTA. Give him a chance here. It's gotTA gotTA. Give them a couple of years there. As always going to be a one and done in there. No He's not finish eight and they'll get kinda. Okay. So you're Ryan Day and you get which is better to coach like a big time college program where you have I don't know his personality your random where New York do you have a decade success a program or you can challenge yourself and go to the NFL? It's kind of dabble. And we were talking about this prior to start the show and Seton goes you know isn't that just how we think that you want to go for the next job the better job or the better challengin, and it's true that we always you know I think most of us think that way like Hey I've mastered this. I'm really good at radio I WANNA be on. TV Hey I'm on TV I'm going to be on sportscenter. Hey On sportscenter I, want to host football night in America. I understand the progression there but Dabo Sweeney to me is a college coach. Joe Paterno was a college coach bear. Bryant College coach Mike. Chefs College coach there's certain. There's certain guys. Nick Sabin College coach. Steve Steve Spurrier college coach. Now that didn't mean that they didn't WanNa try it because. Of those coaches I mentioned flirted with it to chef ski nearly became the Laker head coach. There is that allure of man do I do it now? Test myself now but you know it's the personality makeup can running a team. You have to answer all the questions. If I'm just the offense coordinator I deal with the offense. I'm the head coach I gotTa deal with the owner I gotta deal with fans boosters I gotta deal with parents I mean there's so much involved in all of this. Depending on if you're in the NFL college, I can't think of a great college coach didn't try the NFL spurrier Sabin betray no which Davis Dennis. Erickson. I can't think of one who just said I'm staying I remember remember Kirk Farren said Iowa. Ruled paternity. I know the redskins looked at paternal. He went wire-to-wire I bought a decade ago. Kirk farance may fifteen years ago Kirk parents was being talked about the pros and he passed he's going wire-to-wire Diawara he's the anomaly. Well you get to a point where they stopped calling you right. They'll call and then when they you go no good. Then they stopped calling eventually this program brought to you by Home Depot they make it easier for the pros. They got delivery options to get you what you need exactly where you need it. So you can keep doing whatever it is to get the job done the home depot how doers get more done. What's next for the Texans here? How attractive is that job because I don't think it's an attractive job. I wonder if J. J. Watt will be with the team next year. The Shawn Watson without weapons. Who then I think, they got salary cap issues as well. They don't have any traffic's other than that. Houston is place to live. Thanks for listening to the Dan Patrick Show podcast.

Why Fire Bill O'Brien now. It had to happen Dan and I probably been. One how tough it is to play the position but also know how tough it is to watch coaches winnings tough and I've probably been a little bit more patient with bill than most people in this city they've been begging for it for years. But what set me off yesterday morning was maybe this is the reality because this is how he feels is listening to the press conference after the game when he said, Hey, we got a bunch of great guys and we. Played hard and we didn't give up it told me it's moral victory Monday and the just getting. There's okay it had to happen now because you gotTa send a loud message, not only to your coaches into the city Dan but the players are underachieving as well and I think you put them on notice this is long overdue I. Don't like see guys get fired, but it's the business. That's why you get paid the big money and just getting there is Cincinnati bengals. You know teams in the past getting. There's not good enough. It shouldn't be good enough in count McNair was late to the party on this and Bill O'Brien needed to go and they need they need a culture change Jackie needs to go to they need to wipe it clean and start fresh. I. Don't know if the mistake was becoming the GM there sean because as a coach, I can make an argument a pretty good argument. Bill O'Brien was a good coach and he was winning divisions when he didn't have good quarterbacks. It's just it's felt like once he became the GM and then made a couple of mistakes. Then everybody's sort of piled on Bill O'Brien I don't know Bill O'Brien I just I think taking the GM role is probably the reason why he's not coaching anymore in Houston your thoughts. Dan I one hundred percent agree and I've been preached for since got the GIG and anybody that dangles the GM carrot. Of course, a head coach is GonNa take it. Who wouldn't you want that power at least you want some say in it and I can with our good friend when we were doing sportscenter stored, Scott and remember when Mike Holmgren took the GM job in Seattle Dan when he was coaches well, he had both and I can remember sitting on that sent night told Stewart that day I said when he decides to give. Up the GM job goes back to just being a coach. Seattle, a win again and I believe the next year the year after they were in the Super Bowl and not a pat on the back but you can't be a doctor and a lawyer. There's only one dude that I know could do that New England and also had the best quarterback on the planet for twenty years. So it's not a bad GIG but I'm with you and bill like power and the problem is Dan I talked to a head coach and coordinator in this league. That said to be in a position coach you you get about four hours a day to yourself to be a coordinator. You get about two hours a day yourself to be a head coach you need two or four more hours. Now you add Monday personnel decisions and also was the play caller for the longest time. You just can't do it and I have not talked to one former coach or. Former front of sky yet thought that anybody could do both great and in the process of trying to do both and he became average because he goes to the nose bills a decent coach the problem is the you'll lose the focus and you lose track you WANNA be in the fast lane the whole time, and unfortunately they team played like they were in the slow lane. Is this an attractive job? Yeah for. Draft picks make another attractive Dan they spent the most money on any offense in the league, and yet they're about as their productions one of the lowest in the League it's attractive for a couple of reasons, the with cal McNair, the owner you and I can go four and twelve and keep our job for seven years. You can win divisions and keep jobs. So there's an overabundance. Of Loyalty and kind of stay out of your way but Dan is you know trying to find that guy at quarterbacks hard to do and when you got the Shawn. Watson, you still get better yields ball too long and he needs to improve. There's no doubt that will have something to do like point Greg Roman stone with Lamar Jackson and with Andy Reid and Eric the enemy. Of them with Patrick Mahomes Stephen them better great quarterbacks bring out, take a six and make him an eight and two sean got that DNA. But it's an attractive job number one because if you're not a GM right now, you'll take a GM job anywhere. But Houston, it's Texas it's football. You've got some potential. You gotTa left tackle starts there you got a quarterback, it starts there. And if you have the address, you have the top three positions. So you've got a quarterback in any coach or any GM that looks at it says, well, I start there. You'RE GONNA go through a couple rough patches, but you already have the quarterback in left tackle sewed up. Yeah. It's an attractive job especially if you've been a GM and you're going to be a first time GM. You working in Houston living in Houston. Astros success here is interesting following it, and I I always want to hear what they have to say after they have a win and now all of a sudden Carlos Correa is like, Hey, what are you going to say about us now like they don't understand how the rest of the country views them. You're not gonNA erase history and four the Astros to feel like somehow it's the media's fault if my thought is when I saw that, hey, you beat Oakland. All right. You've got to the playoffs had a sub five, hundred record. Why did you cheat in the first place? If you're so damn good. Why did you cheat in the first place? So why don't they just shut up and play take your medicine and maybe you get to a world series. Than I am with you and living in this town and it's you know it's odd is it? Football State Texas football state. I'm telling you right now even with Bill O'Brien while people are fired up about it. Do you realize and I know you this was an astros town if for whatever reason and there's a sensitivity that goes along with it, I think because I think everybody else does it well, everybody else doing it still if your if your oldest child does something dog doesn't be well, it's cool. If my other two are other three do so yeah there's the sensitivity and I said the other day when said it after beat need you know the twins? There comes a point time it get to mouth use them accordingly because. It's very sensitive there. It's a history of you know or winning now, and we did we had a bunch of one hundred law seasons but you're right just I I would rather you zip it and keep going because yesterday when they're hitting Dan they're off the hook they've got this dangerous lineup like the Yankees in baseball, but it grates on me and I live here because it's like at some point in time remember you made your bed you got to sleep in it and quite frankly even though nobody likes Cogan, you've got off the hook a little bit for the simple reason is you didn't have. To, deal with forty thousand people roasting you for two straight years. So they're able to do it but I would just assume they go win a world series if they can like this and talk about it after not all the way there because, hey, did you deal with it and then you gotta overcome and they're still not there just yet and you've been booed by forty thousand people before Dan I get good my own home. So yes, I actually out but you know you you're having a tough day when you say when people ask you over your career, we'll did you get more by the home? And the home crowd loves the backup quarterback and you. Booed. Here's what happened. They shot south. You going in rich Gannon insert in then after your first throw they're saying, oh jaw. Him In our backup quarterback glows. Yeah. So it's the greatest Gig in the world as long as they don't expose you there who gets the best quarterback? Who's the best quarterback defeated? Well, I'm undefeated against elway. Just ask me and I remind John I. Think I might be the only quarterback in history is undefeated against Steve Young Brett Farve and John. Elway and that's the truth honest to got got elway in college and there's one big difference between me and those three guys that they got busted colored jackets. Dog About my Winnipeg Greg. But I did I beat all three of those guys. So they're the best I but also lost. Nine Sean Way to go back. You did have those names ready? They'll be tastes to. Bob Costas carries around Mickey mantles baseball. I decided laminated. Wanted to see highlight. Sure. Let me get that for you. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT I've mentioned this before and you play the position. When Rogers playing at a high level I've never seen a quarterback make it look easier and that includes Montana elway brady even mahomes. Now there's I don't know what it is. So when you see Rogers when he does it like at. You, know he's the. I why does he make? How does he make it look so easy for doesn't it seem like he's like when he's got, he knows something that the rest of us don't. Yes it does and Dan I I was fortunate to play in the Golden Era I just wasn't one of them Marino and. Ellie L. Farve in and Montana and you know you started inborn mood. There's listen marina was the best pure throw I. Ever saw Joe Namath had a great release to let Aaron Rodgers as quickly as it comes Dan it's so the I think it's probably because you think he's kind of casual, but there's an intensity that goes with him and I think there's very few players at his position that I know take his anger. And apply it to not only his own coach they. Oh, really you. You drafted a coach in the first round a player in the first one I'm going to show you why he's going to be sitting there for five years. I think he bottles it up and nobody imposes his will on somebody smoother and better, and it is he's like Fonzie. He he did. He's like it's like Arthur. Farms. Everything's just cool. But he he feels like he knows soap the rest of us don't. But watching off football I'm not sure in the history that I've covered it played it or watched it. I've seen anybody throw it quicker smoother and with more accuracy and with more confidence on throws human being has any business to attempt off the ground on the ground off schedule unscheduled. When he's going like this, there's no better player in the world than have and Mahomes last night it wasn't a great performance but I give a lot of credit to the game plan there with the. Patriots and we'd love to say now we have the blueprint here where you have to have bill belichick that helps with your blueprint and the secondary's really good in New England can you see teams because I would never blitz mahomes I mean the reason why San Francisco was going to win the Super Bowl is they weren't blitzing. They didn't have to blitz mahomes that front four was great and you put pressure and then keep everybody back build basically just said last night I got eight defense backs. I'm not going put any pressure on you. We'll let you twice. Can you see? Teams like my strategy would be we gotta run the ball limit the number of times he gets on the field, and then I'm just going to make you get the throw football into a tight window. Yes and hope Dan the your quarterback matches him. You got another guy like him on the other side of the ball that could at least score because he's going to be on his way to three touchdowns and their game planning is so and it's great. It's all fine and Dandy. You know when you got a good scheme on defense, the problem is they got a whole bunch of guys. Their fifth guy is better than their fifth options. Like man I wish I had him as my one or two option in mahomes those how to find him and the Great Clare is when you can take and I've always said this when you're playing a bad game or by his standards an average game and you still find ways to win and I'm with you Dan the best way with a guy like that if you're gonNA play single with their speed, he's GonNa. Find the open guy. He can take a nine step drop fallen back. He can take a three step drop. He Can Tho scream they'll bubble at the goal line with the bubble screen tied in but for me I'm with you. I peyton manning used to be great at this deep defensive coordinator. See they don't believe you have enough patience to go eighty yards five times in a game. So they'll make you do it and a guy like manning of resource that will. Match that because I'll, I'll be patient although the Czech down eight ten times I'm with you I can't blitz him because if you don't get to them, you're dead. So what you do is you make him get to the point like all great players do I sold three check downs I got four to help you get a tip ball interception I would rush three or four and I would play. Coverage against him and hope you got three or four guys who can at least make you move off his spot sometimes but I'm with you zone go through your progressions be patient. If you're going to beat me your beat me seventeen to ten I can't let you beat me thirty five to twenty one because if they're in that twenty eight points better, there's not a team at football that can touch.

He has spent twenty five seasons as the Padres TV color analyst the former Major League pitcher, Mark Grand. Joining us now I pitch padres, dodgers, and LDS game one is tonight at nine thirty eastern Ben a long time mark now are you? Hi, how you doing. Long Todd. Of postseason Zach the last time I watch. Baseball. So I had a six pack before sex for. John, green apples this Kogyo cubs. Greedy the world series this year. How's it going, Dayton Flyer Hi Buddy Dan, it's been. It's been a long time. My friend how are you? I'm doing great. Now while you're doing your Harry, Carey Todd Fritz has been working on. Data. At all for bobby to this. The. Starts. Did you ever meet Harry Carey? I did. It was I mean. I grew up in Joliet. Illinois, you're very much familiar with that. Now everybody says you know. The product of your environment well, I believe you're also. Sports Environment I grew up listening to Jack recounts. In Harry well, Dan guess what kind of announce around going to be if I if I become an right, I'm going to be a homer and you know self proclaimed round. Love my padres. Game of baseball. But then again, you know you gotta be critical about your team to and believe me there's been a lot of that over the years. But I love I, love my fryers. Playoffs places here you gotTA. Bobble head over your shoulder. Thought to small bobblehead. Can you guess who it is? Small. Okay, do you want me to bring it up over your plan? Yeah. You can bring it up because I see all your pictures and everything. Yeah Yeah. I don't have a lot of baseball memorabilia in my house by the of sport my slam Diego Shirt well, you don't. You don't have many baseball memories worth having. Somebody's got a picture of somebody of behind third base by the DUGOUT backing up third. That's how we took. What is your favorite baseball memory like just give the audience an idea of quality of play. I had one, two, three, anti back in one, thousand, nine, hundred. August. And it was taken at Jack Murphy Stadium it was. It was the most exciting. It was like an eight pitch in as well. Strike Wow A couple of ground balls at GM shot the first Baseman who how many hall of Famers do you think you struck out in your career? one that comes to mind is You okay. You ask any pitcher numbers and they're going to remember I, remember some numbers the one that really sticks Ozzie Smith was to for twenty off me so. I mean I struck out Ozzie. Smith. Obviously he was known for his glove. Fever that. Or the time but I guess I can't remember I know probably your staff there has almost did you face bonds? Did you face Maguire? Good question I favor. Barry Bonds and never homerun off me but he hit like four sixty five. But you him in the Ballpark, and you know what I remember I was announcing Mike I five or six years whatever in Barrie was the giants and I told Hey, I own you never hit a home run. So somebody said, I'll bet he goes I'll bet you dollar I hit a home run off I said okay you're on. So the statistician back you know there was no internet so they check the numbers, no home runs but four, sixty, five whatever was you know he gave you the dollar bill and he signed it he goes I only force. No home runs so that stuff's pretty cool. I The padres kind of captured people's imagination here. You got a lot of young talent there I'm curious mark grant the Pitcher as opposed to mark grant the homer for the padres how you would react to tat tease hitting hitting a Grand Slam and having a bat flip. As a pitcher. would. Be Quite honestly if I was pitching would probably. Disrupt my timing. You'd probably tick me off no doubt about it but as I've grown older and balder fatter I think that these unwritten rules sometimes are Kinda tear up from away. The game has changed so much and you know that I, mean the entertainment value the old and they'll be added that the kids play I'm I'm all for that I don't think Fernando or anybody is really showing up pitcher. It's the excitement of the game I mean, let's face it the media we have these days just has these guys every single moment watching what they're doing when they're at that around the Mon- River. So my in fact, we talked about this after the fact when Fernando did that. I said, might my bottom line was as a pitcher now? Picks better. What are we supposed to do three? No. Hitters just supposed to lay down the bat and then the hitter a free strike, and then just late in the pitcher free strike. Now it's three in one. Now, he makes that really really good pitch you kind of take it at the knees. Okay. Now it's three to now I do I'm really protected role something over whatever. So my philosophy is bottom line. Pitch Better make a better pitch three. You know. I love it I. Think you have to attract a whole new generation here now? I don't want it to be gimmicky, but let's have some I. Don't know if people I don't think there's enough celebrating the game itself and it feels like old school. Hey, these are the rules or the unwritten rules and I loved what Totti's did I think it's organic I really do and when you look around baseball Dan I think a lot of it is Ganic because the guys are Would you get to know these guys to? It's very, very important to know that it is organic. They're not just making this up and I wanNA know where it's written to where times have changed no doubt about it but I want to know where it's written that baseball was a tennis match where was a game to where you're supposed to be proper and you know I'm all about not showing up the opponents and don't get me wrong. But showing motion is a huge part and you're absolutely right with this crop of talent that we have especially at I'm speaking to San Diego Manny. Machado Fernando. Taty. Shoot. The whole shooting match I mean it's it's about time toward these guys bothering show some show some emotion and you know when a guy hits a home, run any backflips and he looks at his teammates in the dugout and does the old fist pump whatever the case may be. Your fans loved that I loved that motion of the game in I have no problem with it. How do the Padres beat the dodgers? Well. It's going to have to be well first of all the pitching is a big question mark any baseball fan out who's been watching the Nelson limit. My clemenger Clovinger hasn't Pistons the twenty third there's a chance that he might get a start. Lament hasn't Pistons the twenty September. So I? Think the the killings he'll for the poverty, the starting pitching there's no question about that. There were six and four against the dodgers this year. How did they beat him? Beat bueller earlier this year they beat crucial once this year they're gonNA have to grind out at bats. I know it sounds like a lot of shape but these guys are good pitchers. Let's face it the dodgers when you look at their pitchers win, they got really good pitchers It's GONNA be tough to be I think one of the game is going to be possibly the bullpen game for the padres. How about that tonight pitchers in the Game Major League record one of them probably going to be of slugfest. The teams can't give to Kershaw can get dealer avoid the strikeouts. I think that's one thing Dan I remember cast. You talked about Watson bad baseball for many years might goodness. Over, the course of some seasons after a ball game, there would be counter four innings of strikeouts. Four innings of poverty hitters striking out that is not fun to call. On the watch did you cry when they clinched a playoff spot? I got a little emotional. Yeah. I did and I'll tell you why I'll tell you why. After watching so many well, first of all, wearing the padre uniform for three years and living here in San Diego in having the the Gig that I do have you grow attached to your team and I was sick and tired. Of the dodgers coming into town in chicken. Are you know what's around kicking their? You know what I'm not on the team but I say our. I was sick and tired of the cardinals coming to town I was thinking you get the idea I was sick and tired of people. Treating the poverty is like the doormat of the National League coming in and say, oh? Yeah. We'll sweep them three games. They're horrible. You know we'll be in their bullpen in the third inning, which was true. Tired of it and it was goes accumulation of everything. Mo More for the fans it up. Endured such brutal baseball over the years of very lean years to finally have something to cheer about in. All of a sudden it just kind of got to me and it was like Gosh that family La- Mesa that's been found the poverty since the PC outlays that family eskin veto that's been loving the poverty since one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, the you know where I'm going with this. So it was an accumulation everything wearing the uniform getting their butts kicked, and then finally a chance to go to the postseason since two thousand, sixty, just kind of all him. So and you know if you're watching on peacock mark grant has got some things in the background there but you're one of the I guess now who? Who is that? That is. Dwayne Kuyper. Oh the famous broadcaster Dwayne Kuyper. DWAYNE is probably my dearest friend in based light light hitting doing caper. Twain Hyper, one homerun off a Steve Stone Clay with other. But I do love that you got you got polka like a pulse sticks there but you don't have a pool table which is interesting in your man Cave there I. Guess a Nice little touch that it looks like you have a pool table. Well, you know what I do have table tennis propped up on three right now it's Ok mark I I understand you look. You don't have you don't have. Eating I'm actually sitting in all stadium seats from old Comiskey Park in Chicago the remember the green wooden. Yeah. So anyway, that's about the only thing I have. This is the only baseball thing I have in my house. Doing Kuyper Bobblehead Don. The light hitting second baseman the Captain Duane. Kuyper. So well. And have things. Do. You remember the last time we hung out. Should we talk about? It I I can tell you where we were in when it was. Okay. Nine Thousand Nine Hundred Ninety One It landed Georgia. Jackson Gills Yeah. Craig. Sagar's bar. Yet retry God rest his soul Yup Craig's Hager's Bar, and we were just yuck ended up having a good time. Of course that was the year that the braves went to the world series in nineteen ninety one I was hurt I was the official cheerleader of the team. I did not pitch one inning that year and that's why the braves successful. So does this count as hanging out in his this fate that we're getting in this day and age? Yes this is hanging. Out, anytime, I can look at my ipad and I mean you look great. Thank you. I mean I guess you still have your hair yeah. You still do you still look great and I feel bad because you know I always enjoyed hanging around you but there was no reason to have you on the show because you hadn't done anything successfully and and so I mean no offense mark I just like I could be on another padre a season where you won sixty eight games. Right. But I'm happy that we can reconnect because the padres the padres are bringing us together. Yeah I can. The only success? Let's see. All, those years, I had some great food in the Press Area I. I gained a lot of weight now, a eight, a lot of yogurt frozen yogurt. All those poverty losses were like tilted evenly because it was great yogurt machine in the press dining room. That's that's why I love going to the poverty as back. Then because of the the baseball, the baseball wasn't so good but the yogurt, how many losses? How many losses have you been a part of as a broadcaster with the padres have you total it up? Started I started in nineteen ninety, six speed like twenty fifth season and I I would say the teams that were above five hundred were. Will Ninety Ninety Eight, ninety, six, zero, ninety, six was. snidey eight, two, thousand, six there were some good for middle two, thousand, two, thousand, seven, thousand, eight. I would gosh, maybe fewer than ten. No the total of losses like the number of games that you've watched the padres lose in twenty five. GotTa be gotta be over a thousand, right. You don't Wanna I'll get my staff guy to do it. In. Nineteen Ninety six and by the way, have you ever been mistaken for the Steve the Jerry Springer bodyguard St Wilcox Steve Wilko's yeah. Have you ever been mistaken for him? I have never no. No I have never know uncle fester. I can see also a little cal ripken to. Very. Very little. Very fat very, very little. There there they.

We just came up with a question. And I don't know what the answer is but. Do you do you have a policy when it comes to who your partner has dated before? So prior to getting married? And SETON and mclovin, and I were on the basketball floor just talking about this now, I don't know anything. There's it's there's it's there's nothing good that can come out of it. But Even when you first meet I, don't want to know, hey, where you almost engage engage the. I don't WanNa, know anything about that. Yes. You have a policy. I don't know that we did have a policy but I mean I know. You know we've all had a life before that I mean we've talked about people that dated sort of like in conversation but how does it come up in conversation? Do you depends like sometimes you like Andrew Andrew just told the story about how he traveled to Juneau Alaska and Oh, I went there with ex once. Yeah. I mean that's a pretty natural thing but does your wife did you tell your wife about going to Juneau Alaska? Club in with a girlfriend no. But I would she you know what you have kids I feel like that that part of your life is gone. So it's okay to talk about man I don't think so. Paulie, you got policy I like to know nothing I do nothing. I don't talk a lot about mine. I had a situation once where. We took I took my daughter to daycare my young daughter very young when you're old. And one of the other moms dropping her were similar one year old daughter of a daycare was a girl I used to hang out with. Quite a bit. And before I met my wife so now. The circles got the. Intertwined. Tell your wife that you dated her yes I was forthcoming. Great but. You don't want any part of it. I don't WanNa know hers she doesn't want to remind well there if there's nothing good that comes out of it. Yes He. Typically No Typically no nothing good comes out of. Todd. I'm a bit insecure if you guys just met me so I'll take a walk down memory lane out loud without my wife asking for any of the questions about what's going on my bed not that I was a Gigolo and had some great past. The, she do the same. She does not because again, she's more secure and she doesn't need to but I will say that about a week or so ago my daughter some old picture from some book I don't know what kind of books she's keeping, which is like who is that boy or guy next to you as my boyfriend Mike back in high school and then I hear my daughter say, oh, he was really cute and that was necessarily shot at me but I don't need to hear my daughter talking about that. There's some good looking ex-boyfriend that my wife went out with a nice. So that was in highschool nobody was still strange. I. That's not bad. I. Mean if if it was like, oh, Hey, who's this? WHO's this guy next to you like Oh, that's Jim. The billionaire that I dated just before father then you'd be like Oh Dang that's sucks. Now. You're stuck with me and you could have been with Jim. The billionaire I wonder why Jim the billionaire didn't work out that must be really tough break for you honey but what do you want for dinner? That sucks for your high school boyfriend at a certain point you to be like an adult. Yeah. That's where you have to clean out your scrapbooks in just make sure that there's no remnants of anything if you have like an old with notes and stuff and pictures letters from an axe. Who will be found Ballantine's cards let it go I. Still have that plate that had the veggies on it from Simone and ships at bay there should have thrown that played out that had the little crude attain now does your wife have a played i? Draw that.

Simms Co hosts a pro football talk and of course, football night in America analyst joining us on the program. We were just discussing the difference between a shuttle pass and a shovel pass which one is correct being a former quarterback in the. NFL. I don't I don't know what a shuttle pass is. So I would say. Pass is the only one i. know of I mean I know how to run the twenty yard shuttle at the combine, but I don't know of a shuttle pass. Patrick Mahomes last night had two touchdown passes in the past. Behind the line of scrimmage. Is that a shovel pass. I guess I would consider that a shovel pass. Yes. I would a speed sweep shovel pass whatever guess shouldn't account took. Say Touchdown. I mean no not really as far as a touchdown pass I don't know if I totally totally say I agree with that I, mean I. It's a tough one. Actually I haven't thought about it real deeply. It is a cheap way to get a touchdown pass. There's no doubt about that but I'm Patrick, mahomes also. Not, cheap, ways to get touchdown pass to go where I can live with it. You know he can. He can have a cheapie every now. Let's. Let's dissect what we saw with. Let's start with the chiefs in the Patriots here because I thought I thought Bill Belichick. Flying Day of no CAM had had a game plan there. It, just if you don't have that quality quarterback, then you're not GonNa win that game. But what did you think of what he was trying to do against Patrick Mahomes in? Kansas City. Yeah, well I think you're right I mean a game plan was really quality on both sides of the football and he didn't even need like a good quarterback to maybe win that football game or at least keep their really competitive fourth quarter. He just needed a quarterback that was you know stupid for lack of a better phrase I mean, that was unbelievable. Some of the things we saw. Brian Hoyer you I mean really I'm just shocked by that to this point lack of management lack of awareness of what he's doing all those things go back to what you said I mean again Bella check shows why he's one of. The greatest coaches ever. He does a game plan that he just feels like is going to help them win the football game. It doesn't matter how pretty it looks or whatever, and they do match up really well with Kansas, city then they really do they got the best secondary football they could actually at speed and then along with outside the box thinking from the Bella checks, and then of course, we know on the office side the ball, there's always something creative neuro force running the football I mean I don't like you I couldn't help but sit there last night go is this game like if Cam Newton's playing out here And then you had the falcons against the packers and even though Aaron Rodgers doesn't have his top what two three receivers. And I know it's Atlanta but there is there is an effortless feel watching Aaron Rodgers when. What changed for Aaron Rodgers from last this year. Yeah I I think you know you've heard him say like you know the the communication, the offense. Your to there being more created I think it's the trust factor that's really led to the better play because one I mean you've been watching Roger you've heard me talk about him for years. You know I think he was scarred for a time where people weren't open that much felt, ooh, that's a tight window. All right. I don't like that I'm not going to take a chance. Let me dance around the pocket and I'll find an easier completion because all bear a Rogers and I could do that. But. It also led to some moments of weight that guy was opened last year and you should have thrown into them and I think this year he just totally bought into where last night I mean how many times do we see just look at the first receiver and? He's open, maybe only buy three inches but I'm gonna cut it loose and throw it in there and to me it just more aggressive that way with his frame of thinking or or my thinking they're and they're playcalling is more aggressive I. think that's the two biggest things that jump out to me let alone like you said, Atlanta stinks now. Out of the ball. Yeah. Speaking winless teams, the Texans showing Bill O'Brien, the door is that a coveted will that'd be a coveted head coaching job. I do I do think so because the number four at quarterback spot I mean does Shawn Watson either not playing his best football right now. But they got a lot of issues on that football team and I think you know regardless coaches are going to look at that and go wait I can go down there and coach does Shawn Watson still early in his career you can still build A team around now. So I would expect you know that's where I expect to be something offensively orchestrated as far as the head coach Eric the enemy is this where we hear the Lincoln. Riley conversation once again from Oklahoma. But I would think that they're going to be all in about an offensive minded coach because just sean box when did the dolphins start to give to a little run here? I mean I hope sooner rather than later I I would like to see him get out there where. The season still. In the balance, right it's not like, oh, they're one in seven and it's totally over I. I would like to see them out there soon I mean you know we know what Ryan Fitzpatrick is I do find it a hair concerning that. To A, and there's more conversation about him being out there already I think that. Speaks volumes a little bit. To the fact that maybe he's just not running away with it or some impressive that they go man he's so impressive. The teen sees that everybody sees it. We got bench it's Patrick and play Juha. You know we're doing a disservice to our team and obviously he's not got to that but I would think another two three losses for sure no matter what you're going start to see Chula I know the Joe Borough being the number one pick. He didn't have any competition to be the starting quarterback Justin Herbert had a little bit with tyrod Taylor. Can Justin Herbert be better than JOE? Borough. Yes, he can. Yes. Oh no no doubt about it. I mean anybody that listened to listen to me and what? I talk about draft wise quarterback wise. All those things. It's one thing I tried to say a lot Joe Borough was clearly the best quarterback coming into this draft. But I kind of had said all along Justin Herbert has an incredibly high ceiling i. mean he has special things about his game and yeah, he's raw and he played in organ offense that wasn't that good and again that's where people miss evaluate too much right now at the quarterback position, they did they take the whole team and they blame it on one guy go I don't know I mean the stats weren't good and they didn't win national championship must've been. Justin Herbert Scott. No. Not that's ridiculous. He's big. He has a special arm I mean he could make gain changing throws and you could see he knows how to take care of the football and accuracy to a rookie mistakes there. But man a lot of positive. Yeah, I think and I agree with you because if we're GONNA factor in that Joe boroughs the number one quarterback I got factor in everybody on that offensive side of the ball like he had unbelievable talent there because I don't know if he's the first pick overall or he's a fifth round pick which he would have been the previous year and Trying to. Do. A great job at this, but trying to look at talent at that position in say. Like Jordan love I have no idea. I. Know the previous year when he had weapons, he was really good. Then his last season, he didn't have weapons and he didn't look good at all but was still first round pick. Yeah it's. It's tough. It is. It's the toughest thing about evaluating the position. It's why Ivan you know. Hey, listen I was you know whatever? Lucky whatever you WANNA say guys like Josh Allen that even Patrick Mahomes Lamar Jackson because I just went had. Just block it out. Don't don't have any bias when you go into watch this fill, evaluate the player for what he is, and then go wait what is he being asked to do? Is it realistic that he can get that done and then also is there help around him that's realistic to go wait that's his fall or that's a good job I am or whatever that is but to walk than it is hard now joe borough where I would say it was different than maybe some quarterbacks like Austin College team to like what you're saying he made so many plays when I went nervous nothing there the defense one. The play they got a good pass rush everybody was covered and he still made something happened and to me that always speaks volumes and that's something I look at because life and the NFL you're one of the best teams of the game is going to be a lot of the defense one guys covered on under under attack here and I gotTa make something happen off schedule, and that's why borough was special and I think that's why we're going to see Justin Herbert being really special as well. But to your point to Dan at Justin Herbert was on Lsu or Alabama. They'd be just as damn good as they were allred. You know you need a team. He's Chris Simms Co host pro football talk and NBC football night in America. I. Just don't know what I'm seeing I watched Josh Allen because I don't know if it's the second coming of Cam Newton. I just I'm not quite sure. Yeah, it's like. It's like you know they have like the evolution of humans. Right then you know go through the caveman to like I. Don't know what this is I. Look at Josh. Allen ago. This is Brett Farr. Twenty seven years later and the evolution of Man Right. Yeah plays with his hair on fire sometimes, and he does things and you're like, oh, my gosh, I, can't believe he did that wo- learn amazing play I. Mean that's really what he kinda reminds me up but I think you know you're you're saying it he's a special talent. You can see and again that was another Guy Oh the numbers and you know the grading and all the small concerts small. Conference the CRAPPIEST team I've seen any top tier quarterback play on in the last few years no pass protection plan in the blizzard and all those type of things. Around him but you know you see the talent and again now they've helped him out with getting more talented buffalo and Brian Day ball and Sean McDermott are really attacking Josh Allen which I think tells you a lot trust him. They have the weapons around him. He's refined his game certainly and he he's he's a superstar. There's no doubt. He's one of the best quarterbacks in football right now, as we said, you're through through four weeks. All right. So that's Russell Wilson. Yup mahomes. Right Aaron Rodgers right. I'm still gonNA. Go. Lamar. I'M GONNA. Top Five I'm not GonNa let that kid city game just totally throwing me for a loop for all the other good stuff I've seen for the last year and a half and then yeah, I'm GonNa Throw Josh Allen in there right now. But I know we wanna see more and everything like that. But what we've seen to this point is. Other than Russell Wilson MVP level stuff from Josh. Allen so we'll see if he can continue to do this but they certainly seem confident. He can just by the way they're calling the game and attacking week to week basis a why are we treating the NFL MVP? The way we do the Heisman we want to hand out the heisman after September? When did we get into this rush to say, oh, he's the MVP right now the NFL after three weeks and I go it's three weeks. It's like Leonard Fournette would have won the heisman if they ended in September when he said you. You're right. Why are we to hurry to like? Are we running out of things to talk about where we gotta go? How do I stir up some controversy Josh Allen and Russell Wilson for MVP? I'll hang up and listen like. I know you're all I think. These by mind what I'm doing is I'm just trying to pay to picture a damn. This guy's playing good football. That's all I really. Plan against crappy teams I mean I know I know my ninety? Eight Games, can we just wait eight games? So I get an okay I won't say. Anything I'll take your coaching I always listened to you, but I will say to we don't have to say MVP or anything like that. But I am sick of everybody giving like Josh Allen a compliment and prior to that they give them three backhanded compliments where it's like. Well, he was crappy and the ad that accuracy and it's an anomaly but somehow is good like I'm sticking in that crap. He's really good. Is here to stay in my formula with my rankings I knew he was going to be good. I'll leave you with this if you were running the Falcons. Yeah would you consider trading Julio Jones? I don't know if you can trade matt. Ryan. But? Would you would you look to react? Yes. Yes. It's the the shelf life at this team has over in my opinion it's done. They've tried to hang onto the stars that were there that twenty, sixteen team there's no depth, the football team at all I mean this second year in a row and third year in a row the few injuries and their team is shot. They have nothing else because they're so top heavy I look at two guys where I go right now and just go whoa when the trade bloc comes around. Jones and AJ. Green. If I'm the the bengals they got receivers. They distracted a receiver with the thirty third pick of the draft. They're good. This is the time to strike to get assets the rebuild your football team and Yeah I. would say that if I I'm Arthur blank or or the Brown Family Cincinnati I'm put them on the trade bloc when that time comes around. Good to talk to you Chris. Always. Thank you continue to stirred up. I'm not stirring up I'm just talking ball but thank you I. appreciate that.

Legal Mumbo jumbo how many people you can have in the Fox TV studios at. Once. So. Mom's Day off not a bad life. Hey, let's get paid the same. You just don't have to come to work. Okay. Cool and it's not going to get the day off. What do I sign up for that GIG? Ryan. RUSSILLO IS GONNA join us from the ringer. Football we'll talk some. There's actually a lot of interesting football discussions including Bill O'Brien and our our knee jerk reaction to WHO's going to replace Bill O'Brien, his head coach of the Texans what actually kind of makes sense. I definitely want to get to the NBA finals, which we got another day off today. Feels like feels like everyone knows what's coming tomorrow? And it WILL GET THAT WITH PHILO In fifteen minutes and I have identified a problem which I believe is the. the dodgers have a Lamar Jackson problem. Get that a moment. Let me start with this according to football outsiders, the cowboys have the easiest remaining schedule. I didn't have to be a football outsider to look at their schedule go. Right like it does not take, I am not a smart Man Jenny? Know What an Asia schedule looks like. But no, like football outsiders, they actually do the math and do the hard work and the cowboys you are a half game behind the Philadelphia. Eagles. Have again based upon four games in the easiest schedule. Remaining games the giants. The cardinals at Home K. Cardinals can score to into. I'm not sure I bought the hype. Over, them being a playoff team I like their offense, but I don't love their defense than they go to Washington who stinks. Philadelphia who at this point really banged up could be healthier by them. We don't know. Pittsburgh. That's good. Football team by week. Minnesota, as of now, one win. Washington stinks at Baltimore that's uneasy game at Cincinnati plays everybody close just one game San. Francisco. We don't know this is a hard one. Jimmy is GONNA come back we don't know about the rest like the rest of their roster is in tatters obviously not going to have nick both of this year, but there's a lot of their other guys that could be backed by then philly again don't know what they're Ostra. Look by then and then the giants mostly they played the NFC East Nam played NFC's game yet. So you got against giants in two against the to the form, the Washington football team. So that's four wins, right like put us down for four. That's the thing that eagles screwed up most it wasn't that the eagles lost week one of the season when they had without four starting offensive, Lineman it that you lost in division a game. Game you absolutely could not lose to a bad football team. But they did. So we would all a is it? Okay. Am I? Okay the the the cowboys defense is a joke so bad. Whether. They're confused by Mike Nolan System whether football's pass Mike Nolan by whether they have a bad fit for his three four scheme or whether they just don't like him or they don't play hard because they're entitled by the contracts that they have whatever it is the cowboys defense. Bad. And if I was fair. Like look Dak has been great in these comebacks. But by Last year, it was they were score on the opening drive and then they couldn't score. Now it's they're not scoring on the opening drive they're struggling some sometimes it's going the opening, but they're struggling some offensively and then you get into A. Two three zone keep everything in front and he starts hitting crossing patterns and now sudden their offense explodes. They're not running the football. The way they used to some of that is because their offensive line isn't what it used to be or it hasn't been fully healthy. Number one overall yardage number one in passing yardage most of that because they've been behind. Their. Terrible. Against the run there are thirty first in the League against the run. They've allowed the. Third most yards four, hundred, thirty yards game. So look there on defense a lot and they're just getting. Smacked by teams that run the football. And I think it's a win win in a lose lose for. DAK PRESCOTT LOSE LOSE FOR THE COWBOYS Like do you remember draft night? When they they went and what they did with their first round pick. Anybody. I go. Yeah. CD lamb now I like CD lamb. And like lambs very, very good. Low Rosemary on top CD lambs awesome. Amari Cooper. I don't believe is the true superstar number one. But when you add Michael Gallup and CD lamb, it covers up like doing this without Blake Darwin without their starting tight end. Dalton Schultz is there what a great name Dalton egis sounds proper. then. Dalton Schultz Anyway. I I have nothing I've no qualms CD limb. But when I look back to the two thousand and twenty NFL draft and I remember that they that they they went, they stayed true to their board. I'd pillow Oh man they stay true to their board they didn't reach for a need. Yet kind of feels like you should reach for. You mean to tell me that you could either have taken a defensive player and there were several plenty available. I mean you look where CD lamb went in the draft he went seventeen overall. And you look at at other linebackers who were available granted. They thought they were really good at linebacker. Obviously. In the second round, they drafted a very good corner. But. But this team has issues at at at safety. And there were top safety is available or you could've traded down instead they stay true. They're bored and they they brought sand to the beach the rich got richer. You already have one of the highest paid running backs in the game. You have an incredibly highly paid offensive line. You end up paying Amari Cooper one, hundred, million dollars. You Got Michael Gallup who was the second round pick thing right? They're ramping. Okay. I did you need CD LAMB? But, but they did they did. Are you a rims guy Now, I'm going to be honest with you, I love rims. They. Add to a car they make any car. I one of my roommates in college dozen Mason. He had an obviously he's ten years in the NBA and he's super talented artists now. So he's rich beyond all means. We won't mind me selling them out that he had seventy seventy, five Nova in college hoops. But had some cool. RIMS. And and look what one of the things you don't realize when you buy rims. On on a car is you're like, well, it makes it look better. It does you get twenties or some twenty twos instead of the Stock Nineteen Zero. Eight. It just looks better. But the rides a little stiffer, and here's the thing about low profile tires they wear down like. Twice as fast. So instead of getting twenty, five, thirty, thousand miles on a set of radials you get like ten thousand. So they cost more and then you replace them more often and the ride is but. What what's every guy listening to the hurt? Doug. Outlive filling in for Colin with every guy thinking when they look cool and you're right they do they look cool and you know what the Dallas Cowboys look cool. 'cause they got CD lamb. They got Amari Cooper they got Michael Gallup. Zeke. Elliott, they get down a couple of scores. BOOP BOOP boop. Let's put up some yards has fun boys but you know what it doesn't do does it when you football games? And it's weird. We went from Dak Prescott didn't put up great numbers but don't worry about numbers. He wins. So winner. He's got that winning thing. Can't you know he can't put a kid do stat thing. What matters is winning? Okay we'll last year he had better players and they go in Philadelphia and in a must win game they couldn't win. They didn't beat any of the teams with a winning record. Guess what they haven't done this year beat anybody with a winning record. Again is it all his fault like no, and they they? They brought sand the beach getting CD lamb to go with already talented offensive, group. So you can see Dak Prescott. Walks in. You know. Slaps Down Five, thousand, six, thousand yards passing. Thirty. Some odd touchdowns like, Hey, one, my fault. Pay Me my money. Win Win. And you know what they they might be able to moonwalk their way to a to a divisional title. Because Philadelphia is not good. Like Nick mullins couldn't have been worse for San, Francisco when they played on Sunday night. Couldn't have been worse and after a beautiful touchdown pass. Carson Wentz they pick six it's over. There's this still had a chance to win the game like the Philadelphia is not a good football team. No one's arguing that. Don't give it and then you got then they got the giants twice and the Washington football team twice now starting Kyle Allen at some point to give Alex Smith another shot, they just don't have any players. So. Daegu probably win the division. You know with eight or nine wins and a super easy super saw schedule and throw for. Seventy million thousand yards. But. Still not beating good teams. They drafted to only add to his wizardry. Then you're going to pay back a bunch of money and you're not gonna be able to afford to fix the defense. And the cycle continues. And, everything you said about knack well, he's winner. Window like well, he's not his fault. He's putting up numbers. No. I'm really confused because we're in between two. Arguments. either. The numbers do reflect how well you're playing or they don't reflect hello you're playing. But DAK Prescott gets to have it both ways. Coming up next Ryen. Russillo joins the show. Why does Shawn Watson get a pass? Is it just because everybody doesn't like Bill O'Brien? Question Right. And What are we going to say when Lebron James has like thirty five more night and they win their his fourth NBA tiled Laker Seventeenth NBA Title I'll ask yourself. He joins me around the corner.

That's our EC T Q dot Com Doug. Gottlieb in for Colin, and this is like getting the band back together. We got Ryan Russillo from the Ringer who joins us I got a bunch of things to get to. Let me let me start with Bill O'Brien getting fired. It is weird to me that no one seems to have said like hey. Shawn Watson needs to play a little bit better like I'm not saying he stinks or like pull him but gets a huge contract. They rebuild the offense land granted trade away Deandra Hopkins and you know the one thing we all I think agree as bill, Bryan's pretty good with quarterbacks pretty good with offense. Why do you think he's escaped any sort of critique for their own four start Because social media hates Bill O'Brien I mean if you if you did a list of like. Most most targeted guys over the last couple of years. To. Do List. Would he got yeah I mean Harbaugh's up there for college football he's the number one guy everyone roots against. I don't think there's a lot of Tom Herman just because you know, hey, what about this guy was supposed to be you know like I get it hasn't been a good it's Texas is supposed to be but NFL Sunday. There's a primetime Bill O'Brien game. It was just on and I always look I'm not telling you is great but I actually think with some of the records that he had. With some of the quarterbacks before Sean I was like is this a sign of like some kind of accomplishment but then the whole thing derails the leadership from the top down everybody tells you it's kind of a mess and I just think the bill O'Brien thing like it doesn't mean the Sean had played as well as we expect but we don't have the game works. The game becomes whatever the headline thing is the shadow cast the. CAST beyond all the other possible storylines here. But we we do this thing where like he makes a, he has a great game or mixing like last humidity incredible play where you've got clean the I threw a touchdown pass like the next play. And we're like, oh, he's great. He's great period and that's it. Nobody can evolve. Guys that are just okay. Can't get better right? Remember Kirk cousins couldn't win a big game then wins big amy, like it was just one and nobody can devolve guys can't or or plateau and it it feels like we're we're a little bit datum and it's even the JJ watt thing like we still talk about Jj Watt like he's a superstar like, did you watch just a good football player now? He's not he's not captain America like he used to be. Yeah but that's just kind of the job and I know that all of us it's Kinda. Funny how we will becomes because it happens and then. The people that do our jobs say it. So then it's happening in the people that do our jobs you're like I can't believe what he's saying this. kind of goes route around like Rondo thing is one of the dumbest conversations I've heard in sports the last ten years. I mean he absolutely nailed it in at the end of Boston admitted he had stopped playing defense goes Dallas gets into a huge battle riccar allow they couldn't wait to get him out of there. Boston could win get out of there. The Chicago, didn't make any sense he disappeared in. Sacramento he wasn't good in the regular season for the PELICANS had like a terrific player. And Lakers fans couldn't believe. Vogel is still giving them minutes and he has been huge huge for this Lakers team I. It's just another part of it. It's like, Hey, how come more people didn't see this coming like well, I didn't know that Rondo was gonNA turn into like a really valuable player all this stuff and yet because he's really good in the playoffs in spots it's like Oh you guys are doubting him like bull course I was doubting him because I was watching. To what wasn't good I want to get back to basketball on a second. Let me go to tonight Thursday night football bears campaign Buchan kind of hard to tell in the bucks right like they got down to scores and the chargers did but the chargers do which is open the door by bad fumble. And there without ten of their guys like is Tampa really good. Are they getting? Where are they now in your eyes as a playoff team super bowl contender. So we knew the defenses a lot better physically than average out last year because Winston put them in maybe one of the worst positions a quarterback that ever put his. History of the game was that bad but I think that Brady who's who's just a workaholic was going to be immediately like day one on the same page lawyers receivers just you know we expect unreal things from him even forty three years old and it's not what I saw the beginning. But what I saw that chargers game with somebody that trust receivers. And and it's completely on the same with Alex, some of those throws he made the Mike Gavin stroke. He's making that because it's like it's not the route it's not the defense it's like, okay I trust you a little bit more. I know what I'm working with I. Don't know if he thinks GRONK. So small that all of a sudden gronk Scotty Hiller. And he's throwing to him thinking started to rock. But he hasn't targeted crock that much. But then I thought the second half could just see some of those throws if he's really opening it up, it just felt like he was more comfortable I felt like there was a trust there. We didn't see the beginning of the year. So I have at this. Point I'd be surprised if if Tampa ends up, you know not in the playoffs because I, really do think that Brady if he stays upright when he just really job staying healthier healthy enough to play I, buy into them not that I was writing them off but you know again even that first week against New Orleans it was like, okay, you know. A that we're not used to him seeing but I I love what he saw what we saw against charges team and I know this pieces but I actually really like charges defense they're all out there. I do too when when they're all out there but that's big yet on how over under on Philly special references night with full starting. Thursday. Joe. Buck, so he's GonNa. He'll. He'll have fun with it. He knows. But I don't think it won't be like it was espn was levy that would be a lot more I feel like because they would make them they would make them run the tape several times Thursday Fox game probably just one probably just wonka's falls isn't playing that. Well, I actually still think you're bisky get star even a false it's healthy because I think is a lot like. A lot of these role players you haven't basketball you go. Oh, wait like Brian. Hoyer. All we hear about how how amazing practice understands the playbook everything is like Oh allie play Oh wait this is this isn't going as well and it's happening with full. This bears team is not is not who re like that whole you are what your record says you are now not not a always because I don't think anybody watching this entire season of this bears team to no, he does have you know. Nagy di Filippo, laser all those guys work with him before. So they trust him they. They think they know what to call what plays a call him I think that's a big part of it Let me let me get to Duane Haskins I hear an I. I see. A lot of people at other networks, maybe not a my network saying didn't get a fair shake like look to different coaching staffs thought he didn't have a good enough grasp of the playbook. we his college coach said, he wasn't ready didn't look like he's ready and Doug. Williams. Last year said he didn't dive into the playbook enough. Doesn't have good feet and doesn't have is slow is so I don't I don't understand like I I get that we think thirteen eleven games is enough but it feels like it's enough to me where are you on whether or not? He got a fair shake. Look I. Don't actually think he got enough time for first round pick like I. Don't think you want to turn the page on that that quickly but a lot times in coaches are fired in almost all of us are on the outside. You'll say wait a minute. Why did that coach get fired? If people that are their day to day or got hey, with kind of move on with this guy, you get a little formation like I defer to those people. So if they're in the room and every and by the way like anybody throwing out just raw quarterback stats now it doesn't. It doesn't mean anything it just doesn't guys are firing away at three hundred yard games. I think look terrible at times when like Oh, great. This guy had five hundred yards. This guy's reading regards again you. Must Be Austin three hundred yards is mean anything. It's like some of these NBA scores where you go I, think you gotta just cut it off at twenty five percent of the actual production because you're just chucking a million threes now. So I would like to see any franchise that put the first round resource into quarterback give them a little bit more time and maybe it's a step back, take a step forward thing. But some of that criticism of the criticism of Haskins just feels kind of. You know specific. It becomes a race issue where I go. Like. What's Josh? Rosen like WH- who's he gets complained to. You know I think that there are plenty of by the way out by the way look I. I i. I thought I called the Rosen thing right because the people I talk to but in fairness to Josh Rosen, he starts with Arizona cardinals who had the worst line in the sport the worst lines sport they hit a coach that last they and he's not mobile and the attic coach that lasted one year that everybody said was in way over his head and like he was poof gone but again, there's no I'm with you it's like, yeah, maybe he's not good right? He's not good. No one cares about like I think when it comes to quarterbacks at least for now. Now, historically, I'm not gonNA take the other side of that argument black quarterbacks treated horribly, and it's kind of ridiculous that it took this long for people to be like, Hey, maybe like is GonNa be good on. Sundays but. When it comes to well, this guy tapping with Cam L. Canada's only criticized. Because and I'm like, wait a minute. What like? Anybody WanNa talk to Romo Anybody WanNa talk to Jay Cutler. Its position with. Johnny Johnny Manziel Baker Mayfield. Fake mythical a good first year bad second year right slow start. It's it's the nature of the position now, not it at a yes we we can't go. If we go back thirty forty years, we can have that discussion. Now it's simply about how are you playing you based upon the position that position is the most critique position in all sports. I think there's there's times where it's it's fair and most times it's obsessive and I don't think that I really think it has more to do with. Being around the Guy and I'm not even talking to specific to Haskins no I I really think that. It's weird to think like a coaching staff would just go coaches to get stuff wrong none of us. Are you these guys get it right all the time but you know I don't know I don't know the Haskins was awesome. You know I don't know that he was, but it's still seems quick. There's something weird going on there because I don't know if you saw this, he's not even the second string quarterback. He's the third string quarterback and they didn't have him take snap yesterday and then there's video and this is this is the kind of a little weird thing for me all. The other quarterbacks three quarterbacks are wearing the maroon pants except Dwayne Haskins. He's wearing the white pants out of practice, and it's just one of those things where where when the coaches doghouse and you're doing your own thing you're on Your Own Program Nothing Ticks coaching staff off more than you're doing your own thing you're running your the white pants guy great. Got It. You know like you just got benched by get the play you know figure out the playbook and stay ready that that to me I saw something in that video I don't know if other people caught Ryen Russillo joining us. You can. You can obviously hear over at the ringer Let me get to tomorrow night. I feel like I know what's coming Get an extra day off. He hasn't had any offensive explosion in. Again. This is whether you're raw statistics argument right? Like statistically Lebron's played really really well, but he's been good not not completely and thoroughly dominant not even necessarily the go-to turnovers are also a statistic that people seem to not pay attention to, and it's the reason that Miami won one game and the reason they almost won the last game but he has been great in these deciding games everybody. I've talked to down there just wants to go home. He's GONNA close out? Win Another NBA Championship. How should we take this as somebody? Who's studies knows the sport? What the accomplishment of him getting another title? Yes. In the bubble against the heat, how do you take it? Well. We know what's going to happen because you know in the beginning when this whole process is being introduced to it was okay. Well, you know no matter what Asterik. Just, go OK well, that doesn't seem fair like whoever wins the title under these circumstances that's going to happen but then it swung so hard. The other way like this is going to be the toughest championship ever won. and. They're playing heat. Fun. You know like three. Play the right lane the warriors when seventy three games with three to one lead and having to win game seven in Oakland. With steph curry and Klay Thompson quote. Feels harder. Right the bubble convenient and look if you bought it the bubble argument that this is the toughest call time and you're just gonNa hit me with `isolation days and numbers of days in a hotel and resort and look I've been a busy few times. I wouldn't want to be there for three months straight But the. Heat. Especially undermanned he I mean, this is a team that was still projected to win like forty nine game. If you went over and eighty two game season and the more I started thinking about it because I was really impressed with the here's impressive depth dams growth Butler taking on this Alpha role. Hero in Duncan Robinson giving you buckets certain nights I kept thinking like wait a minute. What are they gonNa do with Anthony Davis. They tried that zone which is actually the dumbest thing you can do like it just proves how bad. I think T and I'm not GonNa say it's coaching but. Hell uncomfortable players young players are zone is actually like once you figure it out I think you would know this. It's not that hard score against it, but it just freaks teams out even NBA teams and I tried to do against the Lakers you're like, oh, wait you have six nine Lebron catching in the middle of all listen making decisions to Anthony Davis is running baseline. It gets a six nine or an inverted frontline or black backline where they had their big upfront and they had their guards the baseline go okay. This isn't gonNA work. So, you know I think that there are circumstances that we know are unprecedented for this, but I can't. I can't sign off on the idea that this is the greatest toughest championship to to ever accomplish. You know it's interesting to me is I've heard people say, well, this is the beginning of Adine, another dynasty for Lakers like Whoa. Look I think it's a great accomplishment and I think his leadership and bouncing back from how bad the Judas last year in that building is, is it with the Lakers is big but again, like they didn't play the clippers that next year there probably won't be so fortunate the warriors took the season off my guess would be the nuggets feel like a team on the rise, right? The Mavericks the Mavericks are going to be the new rockets right? They won't actually win because they don't play defense, but they'll still win a bunch of games 'cause they're super talented and offense and the other side like dude, the nets are going to be good next year if Kyrie doesn't ruin them well. As okay possibility. Fifty fifty shot talented let's just say talented you would think the Celtics are going to be better as Jason, tatum and those young guys get better. and Milwaukee still a problem if they ever play him like I, I think I the idea that this is the beginning of something. When Lebron, this may be the last year. He's able to dial it up as often his he's able to doubt up just reasonable at thirty five years old I. Kind of think we should appreciate it while we got it. Yeah, I look I'm. I'm blown away by this guy okay. So you're headed into ever say anything negative because then it turns you into like Oh wait a minute like the other ones that I hear is like, what does it mean for winning title t this ridiculous believe guy there's no pop for this because that was the momentum behind though you know why having because nobody ever did this. You think they've magical magic didn't have to go anywhere because his teammate nine finals twelve prime years that he had. But what if bird looked around eighty eight and said Hey I'm Outta here you know. Like nobody has done this historically. So to say, it's a greater accomplishment to jump from team to team and went all these titles like it's not a negative, but I don't think it's it's something's not unprecedented because nobody else could pull it off because somebody else did it. So I'm sitting here watching him I actually think he's played better maybe than you did in the finals because he just controlling things in a way that subtle he was it was really weird first half a game for where felt like everybody was kind of just off or at least Miami clog the game up enough. But what Lebron does when he decides, you can see these moments you saw them in the fourth quarter against Houston. You saw these moments where he's hitting shots against Denver and you're seeing specific times where he's like, okay now I'm GonNa Start Driving, and then it just kind of just destroys the will of the opponent. So it's not just the raw near triple double numbers for him I think he's just having these games where he takes over it's it's unbelievable that this guy the league in two thousand three still feeling. And if I if I lead you to believe otherwise I was I'm wrong in that. That's that's the true genius to him. It's there's there's a little bit like Brady there right. That's how I started the show kind of comparing it, which is like he just kind control everything control everything and then when you're feeling it and you find your spots now the sudden you still have the talent to kind of take over and and like like there's a reason contagious caldwell-pope is. Late in the fourth quarter to hit those shots or that you know Rondo Rondo is able to get last because you got to pay attention Lebron and to Anthony Davis. But you know he's responsible for Anthony, Davis carrying the team at times quarters one through three in most games and then Lebron takeover when everybody else's tired he has that kind of well of energy that he saved up. He's unbelievable I- controlling things and pacing himself knowing. But just there there is going to be a point in time where he's going to go to the well and there's nothing there it's we're not there yet but that day is is coming at some point. Yeah I don't know when you're right is coming and I would even say there's moments I. Remember there was at the time during the Denver series because there was this other thing going around like always getting incredibly tired getting tired and I would go through all of their fourth quarters but like a lot of these games already decided. Or somebody back in late. So the score becomes like middle little misleading. So I don't know the fourth quarters matter as much as maybe you think and then he had like a I think Torii Craig was on a baseline, Spin Dunkel and granted density up. Yep He's just because he was twenty five just got somebody that's not what I'm saying but those those bursts are still there. I also think the Rondo part of this is a huge part of the team success because I thought again, I thought there were times I'm like, what is he doing out there like it looks unplayable and I think Lebron having somebody else that he trusts just bring the ball up I know it. Can sound stupid can speak to this better than I can but just trusting that hey, that other guy will initiate something good and I trust as opposed to cruise my jacket and shot up although who's MS actually played better than I thought he would you know pope who's not really a crater on his own Caruso you probably don't want shooting a ton although you probably you know like toughness and all that stuff just having somebody with Rondos resume where you go. Okay. You can get into our action and I can kind of maybe cut off this I. think that's a huge huge You know it just a relief for Lebron I have to have that bird every possession, the court. Ryen russillo check him out the ringer following on social media as well. Ryan. Great stuff. Thanks for joining us. Thanks. So let's get to John Delay with the news. Let's get you John Goulet with the news. Let's get you relate with the news. Did it a heard line news go John. Heard on the news. This is the headline news. A lot of buttons here. There's a lot of buttons. Yeah, So yesterday we may have learned why Bill O'Brien was fired. So early in the season by the Texans report came out that Jj. Watt and his former head coach had a verbal exchange at practice a couple of weeks ago before their loss to the steelers sources confirmed espn at this blow up happened and the incident was the moment bill O'Brien lost the. Team they ask what? About it yesterday, he said quote I'm not going to talk about what happened to practice conversations were had or whatever it may be. The situation is what the situation is and we right now have a fresh start had a good practice today and we're looking forward to Jacksonville that is as close to confirming that story as you can without saying, Yep, that totally happened because he didn't say didn't happen. if things really gotten that bad, is it possible? The Texans could actually have a bounceback tough schedule and they hated their coach. I mean there that seems like a prime candidate to me to roll off and they're and they're not a bad team and they have and they have a big time quarterback. And I know people are like, well, you just said their quarterback I'm saying he hadn't played that. Well, that would a good reason weather. Yeah. Yeah they're better than Jacksonville. They should win this weekend and it should be a galvanizing moment. That again and and Romeo, Cornell is experience. He's been the head coach before like so he's they should play with great energy. Then we don't know what's going to happen next week Tennessee. Then they get Green Bay that probably won't go. Well, they got Jacksonville twice. Instead of Detroit at Chicago, they do not have an easy schedule. One thing that comes to win their division not as hard as they had. Could you see about? Are They GonNa Win Games? Yes. Are They GonNa win nine or ten games? I don't think so but I don't know yes I, think their prime candidate pronounce back specifically against Jacksonville and we'll see what happens with the Tennessee game probably I know Bill O'Brien is famous for yelling at stars his biggest highlight in New England was yelling with Tom Brady but man, I, don't know that I'm picking going after Jj Watt he's so he's just so beloved by people. Might be the one guy you don't go after. You, lose weight you lose the locker room at night reportedly what happened On finally, the chiefs will visit the raiders this weekend, and because they're in the same division, we refer to that as a rivalry Derek Carr though disagrees he told the Las Vegas Review. Journal quote if we're being honest to make it a rivalry, we have to win some games. Car is two and ten against the chiefs in his career. In the last three times they've played. The combined score is chiefs one Oh, three raiders twenty two. How the domination by the chiefs in this division has just been crazy and it's not even just Patrick Mahomes. But when he's there, they're just they don't have any competition they don't have a run do that. No. No. I mean even Baltimore can't be arrival to them. No. But that's and that's in conference not individual I think beating the chargers. I'm going to say something like seventy unless. You know and yeah, and the last one that was that crazy overtime win on. Thursday night or something a couple of years ago when the charges were red hot. Denver's ever since peyton manning retired, they've been bad obviously the raiders been bad are and bad for most twenty years. But that's part of it. They've been that's one of the reasons that they've been. So successful and rain read is a lot like bill belichick they dominated their divisions, the keys of the Patriots Dinosaur. Some of that is the ineptitude of the raiders the ineptitude of the chargers at times ineptitude of the broncos since Payton has retired, and some of that is Andy Reid and the chiefs going on. And that's with news. Well that's the news. Thanks for stopping by. The dodgers snuck out a win last night but there's cause for concern in their pursuit of a world series Title I'll tell you what that causes is upcoming next be sure to catch live editions of the heard Weekdays at noon eastern nine am Pacific on Fox Sports Radio One and the iheartradio APP seeing check engine light turns anyone anxiety. But with coverage from carshield, you won't dread unexpected repairs get coverage today and see why carshield cars go further visit carshield dot com use the code heard save ten percent a deductible may apply The dodgers won last night. It was a really really exciting baseball game and I understand that Colin like me my show follows this show on Fox. Sports radio. Affiliates as well as in your iheartradio APP the Doug Gottlieb show. We don't. We don't talk a ton of baseball until you get to the. Meat of the playoffs and maybe though you get. I mean we could have a dreams near you already have the as Mike Myers played for the as he was the former astro who turned in the Astros. have as Astros and then potentially Yankees Astros but the Yankees down two games one and then either Yankees dodgers in the world series or astros dodgers in the world series any we would. We would absolutely take Yankees. Dodgers best ratings, best storylines, Yankees, Astros, dodgers, astros excuse me. So. The dodgers technically one last night. And Look. I'm just going to say they win the world series with that with that bullpen and there's no, I don't know what changes you can make. Right. Like if you haven't been paying attention Kenley, Jansen hasn't been the same since the world series a couple of years ago. Last night he got last night the through a ton of pictures. Let us right. I think through his thirty. So which I think is the most he'd thrown all year long thirty one, the most Mosey thrown all year long but gave up. Three Hits Two earned runs only struck out one, but he just the fastballs, not the same. The cutter doesn't have the the the does not have the same life. And when you're cutter doesn't have the same life. As was pointed out on TV. They're going, hit it and hit it hard. So they had to use Joe Kelley to try and get that one last out and he did it and got the save but walked to in the process and that just does not feel. Like. How you GonNa win nine games that somebody coming in and shutting the door. Anybody. It's like watching the Ravens. I like the Ravens and how they play I love their defense and they get after it. Their running game, but if you can't. If you can't come from behind. In a regular season or playoff game how you expect to? I expect Sukhpal. Gamal, Jackson's literally never won a football game as starting quarterback in the NFL when his team has trailed at the half. Everytime team is led. He's one every time his team is trailed. He's lost. How do you expect to win a superbowl? You can't do that. Hey expect to win a world series if. You're closer doesn't have juice and you're left with Joe Kelly who instead of throwing high nineties mid nineties which? I'm told leads to bad things happening. The dodgers are limping their way to what could be another world series appearance. I. I don't see them winning with that. With that back end the bullpen. You know Tom Brady. Six rings, Lebron's on his way to his fourth ring. There's something they have in common which I feel like should be given more respect. Share with that with your next I'm doug this the hurt.

Clemson Football Daily: Dabo To The Texans?

"And. This is the all into Clemson football podcast, the official unofficial podcast of the. Clemson Tigers. We've played in hurricanes before we we actually play in the hurricanes. We. We got double hurricanes this week. My my son plays the hurricanes on Friday nights. We got hurricanes everywhere. What is up everybody Briley here let's get started with your clemson football update for Wednesday October seventh number one Dabo Sweeney came out a little prickly when a reporter asked him about the newly vacated head coaching position with the Houston Texans. But team, of course, that his quarterbacked by Clemson's vary owned deshaun Watson, I have not heard from Sean and. You know that's Not. Even anything that that. You know I wanna even have to think about that's A. So it's just you would be the one asked that question all the questions and you will ask about Miami that sound is courtesy of Clemson sports information. Here's what I would say about it. It's a worthwhile question but an unserious one Dabo Sweeney would absolutely crazy to not only move to the NFL but make the move to coach the Houston. Texans. Sure. Deshaun Watson is great and it'd be fantastic to see the to link up again. But that team is trash bill O'Brien destroyed the Texans chances by trading with their future to try to. Build a contender. Now there's so many pieces away. Dabbagh would be mad to leave our friend Kevin Clarke from the ringer road that quote the Texans enter this era without him Bill O'Brien down a few stars he traded away without some high draft picks you gave away and having spent a lot of cash on a roster that simply isn't good enough sounds exactly like the type of team. Lead for your foray into the NFL, right Additional data is current salary with Clinton place him as the fifth highest paid coach in the NFL. Now, what's the real reason? Davos should never move to the NFL? The reason is I'm not sure his style would actually translate. The NFL dabbles a little goofy demands, the respective his players, and he doesn't really call place. All things that don't describe the Modern Day head coach Daboh is an excellent CEO which is why he's perfect right where he is and don't even don't even think about. Heading to Alabama number two. If you woke up this morning in a panic, thinking that Trevor Lawrence may no longer be the front runner for the heisman rest. Easy. My friend rest easy. You can lay your pretty little head back down to bed not that according to the sportsbook Bet Online Trevor Lawrence has the best odds to take home the hardware he currently stands at seventy two Atsu followed by Kyle trask Florida who has fifteen to four odds and after a breakout performance against Virginia Travis. Also finds himself in the thick of the race. He landed with twelve to one odds good enough for seventh best and you could even ten to odds on our good friend year keen. Now, this is obviously a huge storyline heading into this week who's going to come out on top and who's going to come out on top for the heisman race. The Tigers could prop up their two front runners while crushing kings, chances of bringing home the crown. A Win? Win, if you ask me and one final note yesterday was actually Trevor Lawrence's twenty first birthday. If you didn't wish him a happy birthday yesterday, you do not I repeat you do not care for him the way that we do. We sent him our love on twitter yesterday granted. He hasn't gotten back to us. Maybe our producer though trevor who also has the same name as Trevor Lawrence can help us connect with him since ironically yesterday was his birthday as well. What a crazy coincidence. Now sick with us as we take a quick thirty second break to hear from anchor podcasts are sponsor for today's episode. Did you know that anchor is the easiest way to make a podcast? Here's why it's one hundred percent free plus they give you creation tools that make it easy to record and edit your podcast right from your phone or computer anchor also distributes your podcast to spotify apple podcasts and many other podcast apps and here's the best part. You can make money from your podcast with no minimum listenership. It's everything you need to make a podcast in one place, download the free anchor APP or go to Anchor Dot FM to get started number three, and finally let's listen to some sound from Miami Offensive Coordinator Rhett Lashley with no context it terms of answers. Yeah. That that happens everywhere in college football and Clemson is is known well for doing it. But so are a lot of other people. It's just part of the game. And I think we gotta be aware of it. But at the same time, we gotta go play and. There's nothing against the rules of stealing signals can just like in baseball if you can catch onto a signal no gusty on second, you might as well throw him out. So we've got to go play. You know what? How dare he accusing Clemson of stealing hand signals? Our program is the most outstanding above board program. There is we would never ever ever do such a thing. Well actually, if you didn't know this already, this is way more common than most of us realize and to tell you the truth I had no idea. I want to encourage you to head over to our twitter account to find a super interesting article by Bruce Feldman of the athletic I pinned the tweet so you can find it at the top of our profile boil down almost every team in college football does this it doesn't appear to be as deadly as a sin as it is in baseball. So everyone calm down just a bit. This isn't Lashley's way of hedging because he thinks this team is going to get crushed although they might in fact, he spoke of how the Tigers are the standard in the ACC we have respect for Clemson. Their number one and they've been the champion our league for a while for a reason. And they've earned that opportunity is that enough context everybody? Yeah. All right. Let's just calm down for. That's going to do it for today's update. I'm really looking forward to catching up with you tomorrow until then be good out there.

Book Jay Corner Gay from Super. Book will will join US later to critique our picks. Mike I'm killing you right now and it just feels good. It feels good to be able to rub that in right now seven, five, seven and five for me four, six and two for you. You know what I got nothing. I got nothing I just got to take it. You'RE GONNA play on house money I have to take it. To do something about it on me now, there you go. So I. Think you think. You think all football America is is is is starting to really start to hate the Tennessee titans for what it might mean for our football. Our football season. Yeah. Yeah. You know it's it's always interesting. You knew I mean you have to manage your expectations. You knew they were going to be some Cova Positive Kobe tested and there will. Be More. I mean, he can't live in a bubble. So I mean you're going to come home to your significant other your wife, your kids they they're not I'm sure they're not just sequestered at home either so they're not a bubble. You're not in a bubble and you try to be as careful you can you follow the protocols you wash your hands I mean I'm on a plane every week now so I washed my hands a bunch. I keep my mask on. I do what you're required to do, but the bottom line is there's no. You know even doing all that stuff mike still test positive. You can still catch it right but the problem with the titans thing though is right there were. Everybody's Kinda, put on notice you know and. This just this was just kinda blatant. You know getting together for a private workout and right now this is this is where launching the rules. This is where the Tennessee Titans and we've seen coaches get fined one hundred dollars a piece for not having a mask on the organization getting a two hundred fifty, thousand dollar fine. We've seen them crackdown on these things for the Tennessee titans what? Are The punishments that are going to be levied against the Tennessee Titans. Because you shut down their facility said, you can't get together for practice you can't get together at all and I mean, you can do zoom meetings and things of that nature. But all of a sudden, there's a report out there that on Friday they violated those rules and went to some high field to work out. Come on guys seriously, and then you get to this super spreader type of thing, twenty-three people somebody Thursday morning tested positive for covert twenty three people within that kind of tier one tier two atmosphere have tested positive for Kobe like to me. You can't punish the teams that have to postpone a game because somebody tested positive, right like the New England Patriots Cam Newton tested positive then Stefan Gilmore test positive. As of Thursday they didn't have any other on. They didn't have any positive tests. We'll see what the results are on. Thursday and Friday going forward and whether they postponed that game or not. But the bottom line is you can't. You can't be punitive for a team that just somebody had bad luck. Somebody got covert right But for the Tennessee. Titans blatant disregard for the rules blatantly circumventing the protocols. You you've got to send a message right, and that message to me is you have to forfeit a game and I get it that not only you're GonNa Forfeit your money is Tennessee titans, but the bills going forward you know they're supposed to pay the bills this week this this game probably not going to happen the bills are GONNA have to go why? Why would they have to forfeit because they won they won the game the game counts it's a win for the bills. Okay well. Paid. But the rule is if the game doesn't happen nobody gets paid. That's that's the room. So you say you're making up the rules as we go along here. Well, I, think they already have that protocol that part of that ruling but regardless, that's bull crap. Well, but here's the bills haven't done anything wrong. It's perfect. It's perfect. I'd be pissed if I was the bills and I and I, I'm not going to get paid this week. But guess what I if I'm not playing and I'm not getting paid this week, think about the peer pressure that creates to actually do the right thing. Well I think you've already you've you've already created that peer pressure if you if player around the league and you see the whole titans team getting docked a game check that that'd be enough to get my attention. Well, he wouldn't need the bills to get it to well, that's even giving you more. All right. The bananas just unfair to the bills I, mean, Hey, life ain't fair we life ain't fair and this is cope with life. So you hey, you better like wash your hands you know. Wash. Your hands where your mask do everything appropriately. I'll tell you the other thing that needs to happen my. So there was a picture circulating after the Monday night game after the game that pushed from Sunday to Monday it was the Patriots and the Kansas City chiefs gets pushed Monday and there's a picture floating around the Internet. Right now we're Gilmore's face to face talking to Patrick Mahomes. Patrick mahomes has amassed up he's not masked up dude seriously. I think the NFL needs to step in and say, Hey, man after the game is over and and we've been on the field and we've contacted. No no getting together talking after the Game No Jersey swaps they made that rule but hey, tip your cap from your sideline. We'll tip recap from our sideline. You go to your locker room we'll go to our locker room and it takes Greg Williams Vic. Fangio to get that done and Adam gays. Like some really snarky timeouts called and some cheap pits so that nobody's shakes hands the game. Then that's what we'll have to do. Right. We'll take note from VIC Fangio for Madame gays and Greg Williams let's get that done. But I think they need to I think they need to implement that as well. I mean it is some of its optics I realized that and right now. To the best of my knowledge, no positive tests to come out of Kansas City. Since that game Monday night, they had one going into the game, some practice squad player, but not sense and. I think on Wednesday the Patriots tested all negative as well so. I just think it's incumbent upon everybody to actually you want to get through the season. Like you got, you got gotTa Mind Your your PS and QS Sodas and that's that's the key to all this because I know that there are plenty of people out there. who think this is all overblown the entire thing, and that's certainly the way the NFL is reacting is overblown come on has any player who's tested positive gotten really really sick and hospitalized Ben put on a ventilator as Abe died. No. So maybe these measures are a bit extreme but. The NFL has bought into it and this is the stance that the NFL has taken. They are treating this very seriously. And so these are the protocols, the guidelines that they put in place so it doesn't matter whether or not. You agree with the NFL stance all that matters is the stance right and the guidelines in the rules that have gone along with it, and it's it's an and one thing you and I. We've talked about this with other sports. especially with baseball when baseball early on had a number of tests what did we both say we said, Hey, give the players give the teams, the benefit of the doubt that they'll be able to. Kinda. altered. Course correction they'll. They'll understand okay, this is our. This is our new normal. These are what this is. What we have to face with. You have to give them the chance to adapt and adjust. Those are the terms we can give the players, give the teams a chance to adapt and adjust, and I felt the same way about the. NFL. But if you're going to have teams like the titans. Who Know, what adapting and adjusting is supposed to look like and you still don't do it you gotta come down hard on really hard you a crush them. In baseball was the Saint Louis Cardinals at You know went into Chicago wherever and say, Hey, let's go to the casinos across the river. Right like I mean come on guys don't be more on strike and essentially you know once they got to their team hotels, they were basically sequestered on their floors and that was it like that was over and that those are the things that you're going to have to do in have to adhere to, and now you know the playoffs here in baseball I don't know if you watch a lot of play baseball I get to watch a bunch yesterday, but the bottom line is is. There in the bubble now they've they've created their onsite bubbles and that may happen I talked to Sean Payton at length a couple of about a month and a half ago or so about doing a bubble come getting closer towards the end of the season. So maybe after Thanksgiving you know every going to hotel and and making your own NFL bubble where you stay at the hotel you shuttle from the hotel to the facility that's it's your hotel and the saints had the Saints have rented a hotel out so they have it for the season and that's something that every player in the saints organizations that, yeah, we be willing to do that. So that may be the case come later on the season late November early December that may happen going into the plows to make sure you don't have a playoff team that has a breakout and and I could see that I could definitely see that being part of kind of the way they react in the protocol but. I think. What the NFL has done to this point has been phenomenal and the way the season has gone off has been phenomenal and teams are going to have to adhere to the protocols. If they're going to get through this season and and I'm with you the punishment has got to be severe to not only send a message to Tennessee Times would send a message to everybody the National Football League well with. The NFL and covert, it's all a brave new world in this thing is is changing but some things in the NFL don't change in that is what's a coach gets fired how things start to come out after the fact that helps explain maybe why the coach got fired look at what's going on in Houston with Bill O'Brien the latest now that Bill O'Brien. Obviously, you know it has not gone well and Bill O'Brien we talked about Bill O'Brien the GM as letdown Bill O'Brien the coach but then he came out last week he and Jj Watt and a practice got into A. Scuffle or not a scuffle, not a fight, but a shouting match if you will so you know I think. I. Think the Houston. Houston Texans. Organization, was just looking for one kind of straw to break the proverbial camel's back and that was it. You got in a fight with our star player shouting match with a star player and and it's already been bad and you've already alienated one-star Star in Deandre Hopkins who's now? Lead the NFL and receptions or in yardage or whatever he's lead them in in in receiving. So you've gotten rid of one top flight player for us is they're going to be the face of our franchise get is he gonNa want out to because of you so? Like that is that is the the catalytic event that started the that started the paperwork on filing Bill O'Brien for unemployment well, Ding Dong. The witch is dead and Bill O'Brien's gone and the Texans can't blackmail respond. Because now. Now the purchase solely on the players. Because before you could you could blame bill O'Brien but now. Now Bill Bryan's gone. So now you know who the pressures on the one, hundred, Fifty, eight, hundred, Sixty, eight, million, dollar man does Shawn Watson. Suddenly now it's like, okay. What are you gonNA do about it to Sean. Euro in four. You're one of the highest payed quarterbacks in the NFL. You're one of the guys that the League is holding up as the next great one next great quarterbacks in the NFL. Now, the he's kind of been the forgotten guy and all of this because it's all about Bill O'Brien O'Brien gone now. So now the focus shifts to. Jj Watt does Shawn Watson. You're right. How do they handle it because now the responsibilities on these guys shoulders when you pay a quarterback. And I think the SEAN got the second biggest quarterback contract in the history of the National Football League when you pay a quarterback whether you pay Aaron Rodgers or whether you pay. Patrick Mahomes or it doesn't matter when you decide to finally say, yes, he is our guy and we're GonNa do right by him. Some. The Dallas cowboys weren't willing to do with that Preska. Making plan a franchise. That's what the The Washington football team was not willing to do with kirk cousins. So when you make the decision and you go all in, you push your chips to the middle you know what you're saying about your quarterback. You're saying that we believe our quarterback will elevate the play of everybody else not just the play mark but change the culture relevant to culture. Yes and that's what you're saying and so it squarely I, mean, you could say it's on Jj Watt J. J. J. Watt Jj Watts always gonna give effort he's always gonNa play hard and he's always going to. Be a difference maker but you know as well as I do even though I think that Aaron Donald the greatest football player in the National Football League right now right I put him above any other player and everybody goes quarterback and I go quarterbacks a different story. It's just a different position. It's too. It doesn't count as NFL player in my mind. They're kind of like kickers in a way. And I don't mean that I don't mean that derogatorily they're great and you've got to have one and I understand the importance of the role but I just don't put them in that football player. They're just a different there a category unto themselves. And when you pay that guy, you expect that guy to elevate the culture like you said to elevate every other player. So Hey, man, we don't need to give Aaron Rodgers of first round wide receiver. You know why? Because he's so freaking good. He'll play at MVP level without. and. That's what he's done throughout the course of his career and that's what they're saying did the Shawn Watson did we didn't need the Andre Because you've got to elevate the other guys to that level and that's what they're. That's where the counting on that's what they're relying on. So do you expect a big performance from Shawn Watson? This weekend I do he needs to yeah amy needs to have a big performance. So we'll see exactly where they are. Now you know they they had a lead against. Pittsburgh. Lost that lead and so you know they're sitting there own four right now they they need to respond listen like you said, Ding Dong the witch is dead right? Whether you want him gone or whether he didn't want him gone you know whether it was vitriolic or not whatever the case may be. The perception becomes reality and it's time for you to step up speed Aaron Rodgers man this was awesome. This was awesome. I. Mean. This was you know we always want athletes to be honest. Yeah. This is great. He was He was on with Pat McAfee Your Buddy Pat Manning. And he said he said quote hey, down years for me your career years for other quarterbacks, right? Bro Yeah even through in the borough I mean the only thing that was missing was relaxed. E. A. Lax Absolutely. Love. They asked him if he how could you not hear the criticisms? How can you not hear and that's his response I mean that is just straight out. I, mean that's just straight out Poland. Just bowling bowl nuts out of your jeans and drop them on the table. Right like, Hey, by the way, look at my twelve inch balls like look at this. That's I. Mean Aaron. Rodgers is all balls I. loved it because he's one hundred percent right? Man He's been great been great and. You know they chose not to get a receiver he was. He was upset about it and he didn't apologize for being upset about it like you just seems to become more and more human, right? To, degree I just I he does have, but he has to understand. That he isn't measured just like every other quarterback. Then, that that you you know what might be a great year for another quarterback is a down year for Aaron Rodgers. Tom. Brady is settled I mean that's that's the standard. He is such as your standard for himself but I guarantee you and this is something you've you've brought to my attention in I have I've taken from you because you are my intellectual property It is the dynasty that never was. And I do believe that Aaron Rodgers is feeling that pressure. And the great thing about Aaron Rodgers is guess what he's stepping up. To that call. Dude he is. That he's fallen right. Oh. My Gosh. They're scoring forty points a game Ike. Scoring forty points a game and he's doing it with with you know. Scan the guys with he's doing with guys that have three names on their jerseys. Yes right. Like when you have to throw guys with three names on their journey, you know they came from went. Hyphen on somebody's Jersey. That's when you had three names on your Jersey. You went to some directional southeastern, western? Chadron state organization like that's where you went and if he's these knocking it out of the park with guys that have three names. Yeah. I on one hand I'm I my first thought was hey, wait a minute dude. You're you're you're infrequent. Rogers. You're one of the highest paid quarterbacks in the NFL you're talked about on the shortlist of all time greats. Yeah. We're going to expect more from you but then my other reaction was damn you gotta like guys like. Hey man down years or careers rather be right Bro. That is straight up flopping. Right, that's right. Come get a taste. Yeah. Come get one hundred percent right I'll tell you what well you know what it's time for J. Corner Gay joins US every week to discuss our picks and give us some tips on betting. It's Jay born again as I mentioned from Super Book America's Best Bet. So Jay, you got the picks you've seen exactly where the way I've been mean it's almost embarrassing what I'm doing to Mike Right now isn't it? Yes. I did seth lower some Mike on a Wednesday. So I appreciate that thing Jay yeah, it is I thought about this. Jay Maybe you could just kind of. Get this visual in your head. You you. You've seen the movie braveheart, right? Yeah weight when the executioner has got bravehearts strapped to the table and he's basically just going just say the woods it'll be over quickly. You know he's just. MIC hold. He's strapped table and I've got the I've got the thing to pull his intestines out right now that's what's going on SS. My intestines are starting to Right now before we get into some of the Games I'm just kinda curious. What what is this week? Ben Like for you guys with with all the uncertainty surrounding some of these teams with the Cova? Tests. And whether or not guys will play or not like a Cam Newton just kinda take us behind the scenes if you could how this impacts, how you guys go about your your work this week well, the last couple of days have been a mess I. It's just you know we're we're kidding you know less than right it seemed like every week you know not just with the NFL but other sports because we have concrete house rules and Lamy with all these. Postponements cancellations. Now they're talking about four bits or something like that, and the NFL you know is really cushioned the rules and we you know obviously, we like to stick to the rules and in the gaming world everything's black and white there's no gray area. So as you know, we're trying to keep up with it We're trying to take the precautions and you know we got a couple of games off the board right now. At first, we we had like five games divorce because you know the Jackson situation. But this Kobe is situation is certainly playing havoc in the sports betting world and we're just trying to keep up with it and make the right decisions to make sure it's fair for everyone. Yeah. We've got a game here in in Mike and I live in Denver. broncos fan you guys have taken the Patriots Broncos game off the board CORREC-. This is actually for our super. which has been around since eighty eight is the first time ever that we have taken games off the contest card and so this week Broncos Patriots and Bills Titans game is not even listed on super contests card. For like. The first time in history we've done that. Incredible Hey. All right. Let's get to these pigs because right now as the you know we picked three games a week Mike and I do head to head. It's the moneymaker picks Ed. Obviously. The Greek folks you guys sponsor the sponsor, the segment I am seven and five. So I am. I'm killing him he's four, six and two. So it's it's not going well for Mike. So he needs to have a better week, but this week we alternate who picks her. So this week it is back to me picking first. So my first game. The Rams in Washington and I had the rams giants last week. So pretty familiar with the rams do on offense and they are they are one of these teams to me. That was I called it the allusion of spread. So they're in kind of a three wide set zebra or eleven whatever you call it three wide set and ninety ninety, five percent of the time and they motion guys and they shift guys, and they do all these crazy things in formations. And ultimately, they WANNA cram it down your pie hole with the running game and last week. So I'm expecting this the giants last week they lined up in two tight ends. Stagnant formations are static formations really didn't use any of that stuff and it's almost like one of those games like coaches have like man we are killing it on offense we are like we gotta change your tendencies up. That's how I felt about it. I think they go back to what they are. They're giving up seven to Washington. I like the rams to beat the redskins over the former the team formerly known as the Redskins like Prince. The. Washington. Football Team I liked him to beat them by more than seven. Then I'm gonNA move onto the Ravens. The Ravens were good to me last week they were thirteen and a half favorites they won by fourteen this week they're playing the the bengals Joe Boroughs playing great. He comes back down to Earth a little bit because this ravens defense is hot they blitz a lot. They have no problem going wink martindale their corner going zero coverage. They create some turnovers I think the Ravens handle the bengals twelve and a half I'll give you the points and then Lasley the saints minus seven and a half over the chargers listen I I like were the saints are I think they start to start. Offense start to click again, the chargers have been great last couple of weeks although they gave up a huge lead in a bunch of points five td passes to Tom Brady I'm GonNa take the saints to cover that seven and a half. What do you think well, mark you know I'm looking at the then. You're laying seven. You're laying twelve and a half year length ever and a half. You know the books are going to be totally against you that that I gained definition of what the books will need because everybody's going to be on the the rams in this game laying seven, and that's understandable. You know I but however I I look at Washington and and Rivera gets. His guy in there I mean he I don't think he ever wanted Haskins in there I don't think it's really a big difference but it's Rivera wanting this guy in there you had to give Haskins a couple of stars just out out of courtesy. I believe now he gets his guy in there. I just think it's going to be different atmosphere in Washington so. Later on the road but I am not one of those guys that could trust this football team. So I couldn't agree with you Washington seven even though I think there's going to be a different attitude in Washington. Ravens Ling. All these coins I. Guess the Bengals. The bengals are you know they're not terrible you know Joe Borough looks pretty good. I think he's the real deal. I think he's GonNa be Great. You know later on game was off the board a little bit because Jackson had a banged up need but he's going to be just fine but I do think the bengals are going to keep this close You know they lost you know that opening game against. The chargers they tied billy they beat Jacksonville bingoed are pretty I. Okay. Teen to get twelve and a half points take Cincinnati. Their saints might have seven and a half on Monday night I'm GonNa tell you right now there's GonNa be a huge game. Every book in this nation will need the chargers I get it I as far as the things coming around I thought they were top fourteen going into this season fell behind. Fourteen points against Detroit sharps were all over Detroit when they announced Thomas wasn't playing so questionable but I do like i. think he's really good. He's the he's really surprised. Me I I. I think he's proving a lot of people on I'm GonNa take the chargers plus seven out there J I am struggling. I am struggling I'm changing up my strategy a little bit because what you said to us last week Kinda resonated with me because I think we all took we took six favorites last week and use it all. That'll be bad for us if that happens and of course, it didn't so well. It kind of was good for me but yeah, go ahead keep. But Yeah I'm changing my strategy. I'm looking at a couple of dogs that I that I like right now I like I like how the Eagles Act saved their season gained some momentum. Pittsburgh's been laying idle here for a while the battle of Pennsylvania the eagles getting seven. Phillies there and as well as Seattle's plane I think they do for a little bit of doubt I'm not saying they're GONNA lose but. Minnesota kind of got off the Mat last week as well, and the idea that I can get both the Eagles Vikings with touchdown. I'M GONNA. Take both of them and then I'm GonNa take what? I'm calling the wizard of Oz game because Ding Dong the witch is dead bill. O'Brien is out in. HOUSTON. I think. The Texans players are going to be a rejuvenated and liberated by that. They're at home minus six against the Jaguars I'm to look for big game from to Shawn Watson and I'll take the Texans. What do you think they're. Well. I'll start with that Texas game because we open seven, it's down to six you know so a little sharp on the Jaguars Because going into the season, the Jaguars were really his team. That was a many thought that they were gonNA bail on this season and try to get Trevor Lawrence and they come right out of the gate and they beat the Colt go figure I you know river. So it's just terrible not game but I do agree with you. You know I heard O'Brien actually got. Into Let's say heated discussion with JJ WATT on the field and you know Jj Watt, being leader of that team. I think that was the change I think the atmosphere is going to change I mean the Texans have really had a tough schedule. You know you're looking at at the cheese raven at the steelers even though they lost the Vikings last week. They've had a very difficult schedule. So I do like the Texans they're laying fixed eagles seven I can understand the appeal eagles they. Anytime a team that performed well on Sunday night or Monday night always seems to get a lot of support You know it's amazing to think that the Eagles winning one game you know is basically playoff-bound. That's that's weird but they've also had a tough road but I think it's going to be tough tour coming off that Monday high going to the steelers. I think the steelers you know probably have the best defense in the league a little bit under the radar as all these teams just throwing up some big numbers watch out for the steelers there Vikings plus seven Kinda? Like it here Seattle defense is not good. There's secondary is just horrible but you know Russell Wilson I. mean. Whenever I bet against Russell Wilson is like halfway through the first quarter. I'm always going why did I do this? You know and you know the guys just amazing I love watching play however plus seven cousins doesn't have it I mean he has a terrible terrible primetime record awful showing but I'm going to take the point here because that defense and Seattle is that's all right. Well, there you have. It he I think he kind of liked your picks last week to Mike. and. You think he's just trying to be nice to me. Just he feels. Bad for you in a pat on the head right now. Yeah. You're the kid Janai were running the neighborhood. You're the kid that mom made us invite to the. Dick. Don't want Mike. He'll you all the cake and so anyhow Hey. My Yeah J.

Thanks so much I'm Doug, they've doing it for Colin cowherd. Better. From Los Angeles this is the heretic. Lots to get to hear. Lots to get too. I did I did not hear but I did see cone on instagram posted his thoughts. Undoing Haskins right. was he pro or doing Haskins? You know I'll get to Duane Haskins tweet I had. How many months ago was February? That I I don't hate to say I told you. So I didn't tell you so and I'll take my victory lap upcoming. Didi gregorious Philly shortstop is GONNA join us. We'll ask him about the Yankees and Alex Rodriguez criticism of the Yankees brass making decisions that he believes. Again, this is Fox Major League baseball analyst. Alex Rodriguez last night on TV saying that the upper management is making decisions trying to outsmart the Ivy Leaguers, and that's what's led the Yankees fallen behind two games to one in their best of five series with the Tampa Bay. Rays, we'll get to Didi Gregorius in thirty minutes. Ryen Russillo is GonNa, join us an and fifteen. What is this championship which we assume Lebron James is going to win I think he's going to win it tomorrow night mean for Lebron's legacy and Charles Robinson's getting join senior NFL reporter for Yahoo Sports. What do we do to shame the Tennessee Titans for an unauthorized practice? Practice man not a game not a game we talk about practice. Oh and why was right about Dwayne Haskins? About Dwayne Haskins. Let. Let me get to this. So, tonight, we have Thursday night football and it's the first like real Thursday night football game. The first couple of they're like how do we get Jacksonville and the bengals and some of these other crummy teams on Thursday night game let's play each other. WE HAVE MIAMI JACKSONVILLE AND CINCINNATI CLEVELAND PROXIMITY. Rivals. But now we got big boy football, and while I don't think anyone believes the bears are legit superbowl contenders Khalil Mack. Is is back to playing like one of the top five defensive players in football. Tom, Brady and the buccaneers fresh off a come-from-behind they show by double digits win at home over the La chargers. Now Brady's team is three in one. And you look at the at the bears they're coming off of what I think anyone would consider a really really really disappointing performance. Not because they lost. But because of the fact that the the the bears got out played like I talked to somebody in the bears organization a couple days. He's like man we just laid an egg that just doesn't that that should not happen. Should not happen should not be able to. To to sit there and go how does it team come and just kick our tail the way the Indianapolis. Colts it. But that's what happened. So I think he got a motivated bears team. WHO's you know I probably a playoff team, right? Like the bears esteem like who else made the playoffs. Other bears. Yeah. Yeah they. Are they gonNA. Win and. And Look it's a technically a rematch of foles versus Brady. Over under on how many times phillies specials mentioned tonight over under. Five. Five the the Adage in broadcasting is via. Don't tell a story twice you didn't tell it so my guess would be. That we're GONNA see that replay of. We're GONNA see the replay affiliate special at least twice tonight how many times would it be mentioned? It was five I take the under two. I'd take the over. It will be mentioned. But there's this. There's this thing in sports and I find it fascinating. That we're GONNA have back to back nights. Of Kind of something similar. Which is older superstar athlete clearly not what they used to be athletically, but it's super maybe highest level of High Sports Iq and do they have enough around them to carry them so that their talents though not what they used to be can still come through in the end. Like look I, think Lebron James is going to be amazing tomorrow night. Amazing. He's got an extra day off and he like everybody else in the bubble just wants to go home, and if you look at the Lakers their close out games, that's when he has played his best best boy isn't played great. He hasn't really poorly he's been okay for for the Bron-. Like Anthony Davis has been a big determinant in them winning and losing in terms of production at both ends then Lebron. But in game five, he's going to be amazing but Lebron can't do it every night and he needs dudes around him. He needed to go out and get Anthony Davis, a top five player in the NBA in order for all of his basketball wisdom and frankly basketball skill to come out. I. Need you to carry me through the three I three quarters, and then I can end up icing and finishing the game granted. It was contagious caldwell-pope who we all knew would come through in the end right all of us at the start of the season like Kentavious caldwell-pope will come through in the end. That's a joke. Anyway. The same will happen tonight. Because there's this continuum in in sports, you have this athletic ability. And then you have sports. IQ. And when it's right in the middle. That, that's when you have like. Other worldly talent. That was Tom. Brady. With Randy Moss and the story of Tom Brady, which is the most fascinating which I feel like. And yes I know America Dugout filling in for Colin I am a bit of a contrarian. But this is not a counter thought this is a thought that I think sometimes, we don't explore enough. Tom Brady's peak. He threw fifty touchdown passes. They went undefeated up until the superbowl they lost basically on one or two crazy plays in the super bowl. We didn't get a chance to truly experience Tom Brady's peak because after throwing fifty touchdowns, he got hurt the next year. That's when they were the best league. That's when they had elite level talent and soon after the mosque thing started to Kinda sour and. Look. He was still remember he went a decade without winning a super bowl and it wasn't because that wasn't his best football. It was just because of other circumstances and coming off the knee it takes like a year coming back. Etcetera Etcetera. Etcetera. But we're going see Brady tonight and what? What is remarkable about Brady remarkable about? Lebron is there at the at the peak of the other side of the continuum. Right like absolute but ball. Brilliant. I'm not sure people understand exactly how hard it is for Tom Brady to do what he's doing. Have you guys ever tried to learn a different language in your forties? Lots of our kids are are learning four languages or whatever they do in schools. Now, I'd zoom or whatever. and. There's a there's a portion of your brain that apparently close up doesn't completely close up a tree every year after like five or six years old in terms of your ability to learn foreign languages. I tried to learn a Russian. When. I was in my twenties and I was okay at it. If I tried in my forties now it'd be a disaster. Spoken English. My entire life and English has nuances that make no sense in any other language. But in English does in a Slavic Language or almost like like Russian, the the train of thought is completely different. I the sentence pattern is very, very different. That's Tom. Brady. Tom Brady was essentially in the exact same system and you can tell me hey, man they went from. You know he wasn't a major part of the offense early. Then it was screened pass screen pass screen pass then the out Randy Moss and he threw the ball deep downfield a ton, and then they became you know option route crossing route everything on third down underneath with Welker and then to Danny Amendola, etc etc.. Right You can tell me that that the Patriots offense changed and metamorphasized itself not just year to year but sometimes week-to-week. Yes Amendola Julian Ataman Wes, welker kind of same guy different but same guy same routes whatever the the thing is all of the terms, all of the verbiage, all of the reads all of the automatic you get to land scrimmage like, Ooh, I've seen this before I know what the answer is. Now you go to Tampa. They had a completely different way doing things. Outside of Gronk, we barely uses all those other guys are new. And they got together and illegally through the football at a park in Tampa. They didn't have a true offseason program. You got coach who has been a no risk it no biscuit throw it down the field. SORTA guy. You all of these guys that are learning Tom. Brady's way they've never experienced winning and Tom Brady has never experienced a new football language anew verbiage, and so you get to line of scrimmage and you're like A, we call this Bama Yao we call this California what do you call it now? And yet here we are four weeks in the season. Played three mediocre teams. There are three and one and appears like it's starting to hit it stride. But the true brilliance to Lebron. The true. Brilliant to Tom Brady that you're going to see the next two nights is the understanding of a can do this crap by myself anymore. I need a couple of guys in football and a guy in basketball to make some plays so that my sports I Q and every once in a while I can dial up that old level of talent. And be that superstar self that I have. There's lots of things that make you a sports. K. But the reason bill O'Brien got fired. Is the same reason that Kyrie irving sounded like a jerk last week is that the smartest people know enough to know what they don't know Right and the smartest athletes know enough to know what they can't do anymore and get somebody else who can do it for them. I think they'll be times in which Tom Brady will look forty three. I think that if they can force them off his spot as is always been the case and make him feel rushed, he'll be a little bit lost because the offense is very, very different. I'm not sure how good Tampa really is. But. You know you got guys in Tampa Bay saying, of course I believe in Tom Brady. He made a couple of plays in the second quarter that made them believe, and then they just took off after that with the chargers last week. Over. The next two nights I think you understand the true greatness of great athletes. I. Don't think Tom I think Aaron Rodgers probably the the best quarterback I've ever seen play but Tom, Brady's the most successful for reason. I'm a Jauregui Lebron guy we can get into how we valued this championship versus other championships. But the understanding of where you are athletically the willingness to allow others to make plays that you used to be able to make. That's when you show your true kind of sports acumen. True Brilliance to me. Be sure to catch live additions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern nine am Pacific on Fox sports radio affects one and the iheartradio APP. Are you ready mistress the head fixing podcast Tuman Bay Yes reaches is. The final season. Not as you. To saved. From IHEART radio and gold hope productions Stephen is coming from might've child affiars wealth destroy. She's dead. She, came back. Something's going to happen. You need to be ready from creators, Johm Scott Dryden and Mike Walker I made. because. Gregory. You are the hinge of history scrolls whenever about the past. Future. As season four, take me to Tuman Bay listen and eighteen bay on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts or wherever you listen to podcasts what now Wait. To. The, very, very important that we start with this as the premise. I loved the Shawn Watson. Right I think he's tough I. think he's talented. I think he's done a lot of tremendous things during his time as starting quarterback of the Houston Texans. So no way am I saying Dude, you got a bench him or you got to move on from him course they can't because they just signed to the second biggest contract. In the history of the sport. And but I do think that this is absolutely fair way to look at it. Bill O'Brien got fired by the Houston. Texans on Monday and what's come out since is his confrontational style which we shouldn't be surprised by right like. Until he was fired or maybe until he was the head coach of the Texans. What he was most known for was a verbal confrontation with Tom Brady when they worked together New England like all that that's how they roll. New England like that's who he'll be was And I'm I'm perfectly okay with people saying that Bill O'Brien he is arrogance is. Complete was. Taking over complete control. Trained the Andre Hopkins getting into A. J. J.. Watt he lost the locker room and that's why you'll definitely lost his job. That's fair. Hey. Hey. Help me out here. Era Jeff, startling for. Tom Brady Russell Wilson ever win for. Give me the Star quarterback. That has ever begun a season outside of maybe their first season in the NFL right like troy. AIKMAN when they're terrible terribles, I like in the prime of their career they've ever started going four now look again I will grant you that they played Kansas City defending champions on the road, and while they had a couple extra days repair, they played Baltimore at home. And then they took on Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Baltimore two very good teams. I would also point out that it's the same Baltimore Defense. That Pat Mahomes ripped to shreds. Right. These are these are all fair things. Hasn't found a great running game. Not all his fault. But can somebody tell me why there hasn't been any critique of Sean Watson's play. Guy Follow all these guys who I love Jeff Schwartz now works for us. He does the breakdown, the spoon. Was Pretty Cool, right like stern coffee and now pointing out at Dan Orlovsky former quarterback there's there. I haven't seen one piece of tape showing me like what's not working with the Houston Texans. Now look again, I'm not saying he should get all of the blame. Half. Of. The blame. But like that Prescott is setting records in. Dallas. And there are many people myself included like, Hey, that's great. But down three scores, lots of people put up numbers would you do in the first half? Your defense may be a disaster, but you gotTa keep your team in it. When your defense is just a sieve. Like we can say what we want about the Atlanta Falcons. Right and their inability to have a lead but they had these big leads because there are times in which Matt Ryan Is. Actually balling. I they had they had a huge lead over the cowboys because Matt Ryan was putting them in position to have those big leads. Same thing the very next week against the bears. Cowboys. Don't have that. So at least that's not what's happening with the Texans. They're bad. Their offense is fairly feeble his he's one game don't over three hundred. He's not the same runner he used to be nor should he be because that's one of the things that led them getting hurt in college and in the pros and playing with a collapsed after a collapsed lung a couple years ago like dudes a warrior K. got kicked in the face with a cleaton and threw touchdown passes one I last year I'm not trying to tell you he stinks don't like him. I'm just saying, don't tell me the Shawn Watson. Is playing well and not part of the problem when his teams Oh and four and they lost the Minnesota Vikings. Some of the blame should go on Teflon to sean and it's not. It's really weird. And wants to. Hang Gotten to. AFC championship game. has won MVP. He just we love him because he wasn't asked champ ship but Clemson and because I put up six number sick numbers, a rookie got hurt. He's been really really good and he's really really tough and he's fun and he's likable all these things but is he really only quarterback? No, he's seconds pay guy in the league. It seems four and everything is Bill O'Brien Villa Hey. The one thing we think bill O'Brien can do is often football pretty good at. Their offense. All the Andrea Hopkins I don't think so. Why does he escape all criticism? Some explained that one to me. You know or critical Lamar when one bad game against the chiefs he's third years of starter. Nolan says a word when their own four. Houston be sure to catch live additions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific. Let me start with this according to football outsiders. The cowboys have the easiest remaining schedule. I didn't have to be a football outsiders to look at their schedule go. Off Right. It does not I am not a smart man Jan eight, but I do know what an Asian schedule looks like. But no, like football outsiders actually do the math and do the hard work and the cowboys you are a half game behind the. Philadelphia. Eagles. Have Again, based upon four games in the easiest schedule. Remaining games the giants. The cardinals at Home K. Cardinals can score their to into. I'm not sure I bought the hype. Over them being a playoff team I like their offense, but I don't love their defense then they go to Washington who stinks Philadelphia who at this point really banged up could be healthier by then we don't know. Pittsburgh. That's good. Football team by week Minnesota as of now one win. Wash Instincts at Baltimore that's uneasy game at Cincinnati plays everybody close just WanNa Game San Francisco. We don't know this is a hard one. Jimmy is going to come back. We don't know about the rest like the rest of their roster is in tatters obviously, not gonNa have nick boasts of this year, but there's a lot of their other guys that could be backed by then philly again, don't know what they're Ostra look like by then the giants mostly they played the NFC east nambla entities game yet. So you've got to against the giants in two against the the form, the The Washington football team. So that's four wins, right? Like you put us down for four. That's the thing that the eagles screwed up most it wasn't the eagles lost week one of the season when they had their without four starting offensive Lineman, it's that you lost in division. A game. Game absolutely could not lose to a bad football team. But they did. So we would all is it? Okay am I okay. Saying the the cowboys defense is a joke it's so bad. Whether they're confused by Mike Nolan System whether football's pass Mike Nolan, by whether they have a bad fit for his three four. Scheme or whether they just don't like him or they don't play hard because they're entitled by the contracts that they have whatever it is the cowboys defense is bad. And if I was fair. Like look Dak has been great in these comebacks. But like. Last. Year it was they score on the opening drive and then they couldn't score. Now it's they're not scoring on the opening drives they're struggling some sometimes it's going the opening drive, but they're struggling some offensively and then you get into a you know two three deep zone keep everything in front and he starts hitting crossing patterns and now a sudden their offense explodes. They're not running the football. The way they used to some of that is because their offensive line isn't what it used to be or it hasn't been fully healthy. Number one overall yardage number one in passing yardage most of that because they've been behind. Their terrible against the run there are thirty first in the League against the run. They've allowed the. Third most yards four, hundred, thirty yards game. So look there on defense a lot and they're just getting. Smacked by. Teams at run the football. And I think it's a win win in a lose lose for. Dak Prescott. Lose. For the cowboys. Like do you remember draft night? When they they went and what they did with their first round pick. Anybody. I go. Yes. CD lamb now I like CD lamb. Lambs very, very good low rosemary on top CD. Lambs. Awesome. Amari Cooper I don't believe is the true superstar number one. But when you add Michael Gallup and CD lamb, it covers up like doing this without Blake Darwin without their starting tight end. Dalton Schultz is there title what a great name dull to sounds proper? then. Dalton scholtz anyway. I. I have I have no qualms with CD limb. But when I look back to the two thousand and twenty NFL draft and I remember that they that they they went, they stayed true to their board. Yeah. I'd be though Oh man they stay true to their board didn't reach for a need. It kind of feels like you should've HVAC. You mean to tell me that you couldn't either have taken a defensive player and there were several plenty available. You look where CD lamb went in the draft he went seventeenth overall. And you look at at other linebackers who were available granted. They thought they were really good at linebacker. Obviously in the second round, they drafted a very good corner. But but this team has issues at at at safety. And there were top safety is available or you could've traded down instead they stay true to their board and they they brought sand to the beach the rich got richer. Yard have one of the highest paid running backs in the game. You have an incredibly highly paid offensive line. You end up paying Amari Cooper one, hundred, million dollars. You Got Michael Gallup who was the second round pick I think right. There REMPAC okay. Did you need CD LAMB? But but they did they did. Are you a rims guy Now I'm going to be honest with you I love rims. They add to a car, they make any car. My one of my roommates in college is doesn't Mason. He had an obviously he's ten years in the NBA and he's super talented artists now. So he's rich beyond all means. We won't mind me selling them out that he had a seventy seventy five Nova in college hoops. But he had some COOL RIMS And and look what one of the things you don't realize when you buy rims. On a car is you're like, well, it makes it look better. It does you get some twenties or some twenty twos instead of the stock. Nineteen. Eighteen Looks. Better. But. The rides a little stiffer and here's the thing about low profile tires they wear down like. Twice as fast. So instead of getting twenty, five, thirty, thousand miles on a set a radials, you get like ten thousand. So they cost more and then you replace them more often and the ride is in but. What, what's every guy listen to? The hurt? Doug Out Lipponen, for Colin Whatever Guy Thinking when they look cool and you're right they do they look cool and you know what the Dallas Cowboys Look Cool? 'cause they got CD lamb. They got Amari Cooper they got Michael. Gallup. Zeke Elliott they get down a couple of scores BOOP boop. Let's put up some yards. This has fun boys, but you know what? It doesn't do. It doesn't when you football games. And it's weird. We went from Dak Prescott didn't put up great numbers but don't worry about numbers he wins. So winner. He's got that winning thing. Can't you know he can't put a kid do the stat thing. What matters is winning. Okay. We'll last year he had better players and they go into Philadelphia and in a must win game they couldn't win. They didn't beat any of the teams with a winning record. Guess what they haven't done this year beat anybody with a winning record. Again. Is it all his fault like no, and they they? They brought sand the beach getting CD lamb to go with an already talented offensive group. So you can see, the Dak Prescott walks in. You know. Slaps Down Five, thousand, six, thousand yards passing. Thirty, some odd touchdowns like, Hey, one, my fault. Pay Me my money. Win Win. And you know what they they might be able to moonwalk their way to a to a divisional title. Because Philadelphia is it's not good. Like Nick mones couldn't have been worse for San, Francisco when they played on Sunday night. Couldn't have been worse and after a beautiful touchdown pass Carson Wentz. They get a pick six. It's over. There's still had a chance to win the game like the Philadelphia is not a good football team. No one's arguing that. Give it, and then you got then they got the giants twice and the Washington football team twice now starting cal Allen at some point give Alex Smith another shot they just don't have any players. I mean. So Daegu probably win the division. You know with eight or nine wins an super easy super saw schedule and throw for. Seventy million thousand yards. But still not beating good teams. They drafted to only add to his wizardry. Then, you're going to pay back a bunch of money and you're not going to be able to afford to fix the defense. And the cycle continues. And everything you said about knack well, he's winner. The window like well, he's is not his fault. He's putting up numbers. No. I'm really confused because we're in between two conflicting arguments. Either the numbers do reflect how well you're playing or they don't reflect hello you're playing. But DAK Prescott gets to have it both ways one more heard the heard streams twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio APP search her to listen live or on-demand whenever you like we got Ryan Russillo from the Ringer who joins us I got a bunch of things to get to. Let me let me start with Bill O'Brien getting fired. It is weird to me that no one seems to have said like hey. Shawn Watson to play better light like I'm not saying he stinks or like pull him but gets a huge contract. They rebuild the offense land grant trade away the Andre Hopkins and. You know the one thing we all I think agree as bill, Bryan's pretty good with quarterbacks pretty good with offense. Why do you think he's escaped any sort of critique for their own four start? Because social media hates Bill O'Brien I mean if you if you did a list of like. Most most targeted guys over the last couple of years look. List he got. Yeah. I mean are up there for college football. He's number guy everyone roots against I don't think there's a Lotta love Tom Herman just because you know they W- thought this guy was supposed to be the guy you know like I get. It hasn't been a good at Texas is supposed to be but NFL Sunday like anytime there's a prime time Bill Brian game it was just on and I always look I'm not telling you is great but I actually think with some of the records that he had with some of the quarterbacks before Deshaun I was like is this a sign? Of like some kind of accomplishment but then the whole thing derails the the leadership from the top down everybody. Tell you it's kind of a mess and I just think the bill O'Brien thing it doesn't mean that this Sean hasn't played as well as we expect up but we know how the game works. The game becomes whatever the headline thing is the shadow cast you know cast beyond all the other possible storylines. Yeah. But we we do this thing where like he makes he has a great game or mixing like last humidity incredible play where you gotTa. Cleaton right and threw a touchdown pass the next play. And we're like, oh, he's great. He's great period and that's it. Nobody can evolve. Guys that are just can't get better right? Kirk cousins couldn't win a big game. Anyone's big amy, like it was just one and nobody can devolve gives can't or plateau and it it feels like we're were a little bit datum and it's even the JJ watt thing like we still talk about Jj. Watt. Like he's a superstar like, did you watch just a good football player now? He's not he's not captain America like he used to be. Yeah but that's just kind of the job and I know that all of us it's Kinda. Funny. How circle we will becomes because it happens and then the people that do our jobs say it. So then it's happening and then the people that do our jobs like can't believe already saying this and just Kinda goes route around Rondo thing is one of the dumbest conversations I've heard in sports the last ten years I, mean he absolutely mailed it in at the end of Boston admitted he had stopped playing defense goes to Dallas gets in a huge battle with Rick Carlisle. They couldn't wait to get him out of their boss could get him. Out of there the Chicago didn't make sense disappeared in. Sacramento he wasn't good in the regular season for the PELICANS. Then had like a terrific playoff run and Lakers fans couldn't believe Vogel still giving a minutes and he has been huge huge for this Lakers team i. you know it's just another part of it. It's like, Hey, how come more people didn't see this coming like well, I didn't know that Rondo was gonNA turn into like a really valuable player all this stuff and yet because he's been really good in the playoffs in spots and it's like Oh all you guys are doubting like bull course I was doubting him because I was watching. What he wasn't good. I want to get back to basketball on a second. Let me go tonight. Thursday. Night Football. Bears Tampa. Bay, buccaneers kind of hard to tell in the bucks. Right. They got down to scores and the chargers did but the chargers do which is open the door by bad fumble you know and they there without ten of their guys like is Tampa. Really good. Are they like where are they now in your eyes as a playoff team super bowl contender. Renew the defense is a lot better statistically than than average outlast here because Winston put them in. Maybe one of the worst positions of quarterbacks ever put his detention history of the game was that bad but think that Brady who's who's just a workaholic was gonna be immediately like day one on the same page allies receivers I. Just you know we expect unreal things from him even forty three. Years old and it's not what I saw the beginning. But what I saw that chargers game with somebody that trust is receivers and it's completely like on the same page with some of those made like Mike. Evans throw he's making that 'cause it's like it's not the route it's not the defense. It's like, okay I trust you a little bit more I know what I'm working with I don't. Know if he thinks that Gronk got so small that all of a sudden gronk is Scott Miller and he's throwing him thinking started rock but he hasn't targeted crock that much. But then I thought the second half. You could just see some of those surgeries really opening it up. It just felt like he was more comfortable. Felt like there was a trust there that we didn't see the beginning. Of the year. So I have at this point I'd be surprised if if Tampa ends up, you know not in the playoffs because I really do think that Brady if he stays upright when he just doesn't really good job staying healthier healthy enough to play I buy do 'em not that I was writing off but again, even that first week against new. Orleans it was like, okay, you know. WHO picked it? We're not used to him seeing but I love what he saw what we saw to charge team and I know with Disag- pieces but I actually really like defense they're all out there I do too when they're all out there bets. That's big. Yeah. On how over under on Philly special references tonight with full starting. Thursday it's it's Joe Buck. So he's GonNa. He'll. He'll have fun with it. He knows. But I don't think it won't be like it. was. ESPN was. Levy there would be a lot more I feel like because they would make them they would make him run the tape several times Thursday Fox game probably just one probably just wonka's falls as implying that well, I actually still you're bisky gets to start even a false it's healthy because I think full is a lot like. A lot of these role players. You haven't basketball where you go. Wait like. Brian. Hoyer. How amazing practice understands the playbook everything is like, oh, aaliyah's to play. Oh, wait this is this isn't going as well and it's happening with foals like this bears team is not is not who like that whole wreck you are what your record says you are now not not always because I don't think anybody watching this entire season this bears team six or any good. No, he does have you know Nagy di Filippo laser all those guys work with them before so they. They they trust him they. They think they know what to call what Plays Call Forum I think. That's a big part of it Let me let me get to Duane Haskins I. I hear and I see a lot of people at other networks. Maybe even am a my network saying didn't get a fair shake. I'm like look to different coaching staff thought he didn't have a good grasp of the playbook. we his college coach said, he wasn't ready didn't look like he's ready and even Doug Williams last year said he didn't dive into the playbook enough. Doesn't have good feet and doesn't have is slow is so I don't I don't understand like I get that we think thirteen eleven games is enough but feels like it's enough to me where you on whether or not he got a fair shake. You Look I don't actually think he got enough time for first round pick like I don't think you want to turn the page on that that quickly. But a lot of times coaches are fired in almost all of us are on the outside and you'll say, wait a minute. Why did that coach get fired? Go you know what if people that are their day-to-day or not? Hey, we're Kinda move on this guy you get a little work formation like I defer to those people. So if they're in the room and everything by the way like anybody throwing out just raw quarterback stats now it doesn't it doesn't mean anything it just doesn't like guys are. Firing away at three Hundred Yard Games is I think look terrible times when like Oh, great. This guy had five hundred yards and this guy is reading regards again, you must be Austin three hundred yards is a mean anything anymore it's it's like seventy NBA scores where you go I think you just cut it off at twenty five percent of the actual production is could just chucking a million threes now. So I would like to see any franchise that put the first round resource into quarterback give them a little bit more time, and maybe it's a step back and take a step forward thing but some of that criticism of the criticism of Haskins feel. Kinda. You know specific. It becomes a race issue where I go well like what Josh Rosen like, what who's he gets complained to. You know. They're plenty of by the way by the way I. Thought I called the Rosen thing right? Because the people I talked to. But in fairness Josh Rosen, he starts with Arizona cardinals who had the worst line in the sport the worst lines port, they hit a coach that lasts the and he's not mobile and the ad a coach that lasted one year that everybody said was in way over his head and like he was poof gone but again, there's no, I'm with you. It's like, yeah, maybe not good right he's not good. No one cares about like I think when it comes to quarterbacks at least for now now, historically I'm not gonNA take the other side of that argument right black quarterbacks treated horribly, and it's kind of ridiculous that it took this long for people to be like, Hey, maybe like I was going to be good on Sundays but. When it comes to well, this guy tapping with cam like cameras only criticized. Because and I'm like, wait a minute. What like Anybody WanNa talk of Romo isn't anybody WanNa talk to Jay Cutler now. It's the position of. Johnny Johnny Manziel Baker Mayfield right bake method has a good first year bad second year right a slow start. It's it's the nature of the position now not it at yes. We we can't go if we go back thirty forty years, we can have that discussion now it's simply about how are you playing? Based upon the position that position is the most critique position all sports. I just think there's there's times where it's it's fair and most times it's obsessive and I don't think that I really think it has more to do with. Being around the Guy and I'm not even talking specific to Haskins, you know I I really think. It's Weird to think coaching staff would just go coaches get stuff wrong none of us argument these guys get it right all the time but you know I don't know. I don't know the Haskins was awesome. But it still seems quick. There's something weird going on there because I don't know if you saw this, he's not even the second string quarterback. He's the third string quarterback and they didn't have him take snaps yesterday, and then there's video and this is a little. This is a kind of a a little weird thing for me all the other quarterbacks all over three quarterbacks are wearing the Maroon pants except for Dwayne Haskins, he's wearing the white pants out of practice and it just one. Of those things where where when, when you're in the coaches doghouse and you're doing your own thing you're on your own Program nothin takes a coaching staff off than you're doing your own thing you run. Oh, you're the white pants guy great. Got It. You know like you just got benched by get the play you know figure out the playbook and stay ready that that to me I saw something in that video which I don't know of other people caught Ryen Russillo joining us. You can. You can obviously hear him over at the Ringer Let me get to tomorrow night. I feel like I know what's coming right give him an extra day off. He hasn't any offensive explosion in like st again, this is what the statistics argument right like statistically Lebron's played really really well, but he's been good not not completely and thoroughly dominant not even necessarily the go-to turnovers are also a statistic that people seem to not pay attention to, and it's the reason that Miami won one game and the reason they almost won the last game but he has been great in these deciding games. Everybody I've talked to down there just wants to go home. He's going to close out a win and other NBA Championship. How should we take this as somebody who's studies and knows the sport? What the accomplishment of him getting another title? Yes. In the bubble against the heat, how do you take it? Well. We know what's going to happen because you know in the beginning when this whole process is being introduced to it was okay. Well, you know no matter what Astrakan on this just go ok well that doesn't seem fair like whoever wins the title under these circumstances that's what's going to happen but then it swung so hard the other way that it's like this is going to be the toughest championship ever won and like I don't know they're playing the heat. They. You know like three. Plane Right Clean the warriors in seventy three games with three to one lead and having to win game seven in Oakland Khaneh with Steph curry and Klay Thompson close. It's not even close Kinda feels harder. Right the bubbles inconvenient and look if you bought into the bubble argument that this is the. Time you're just GonNa hit me with isolation days and numbers of of days in a hotel and resort and look I've been busy a few times I wouldn't WanNa be there for three months straight But the he. Especially undermanned he I mean this was a team that was still projected a win like forty nine games if you went over and eighty two game season and the more I started thinking about it because I was really impressed with the here's impressive depth dams growth Butler taken on this Alpha role. Hero, and in Dunkin Robinson giving you buckets on certain nights I kept thinking like wait a minute. What are they gonNa do with Anthony Davis and they try that on which is actually the dumbest thing you can do. It just proves. How Bad I think T and I'm not GonNa say it's coaching but. How uncomfortable players young are against his own 'cause actually like once you figure it out. I, think you would know this. It's not that hard to score against it, but it just freaks teams out NBA teams and. They tried to do against the Lakers awake you have six nine Lebron catching the middle of all of this and making past decisions to Anthony. Davis is running baseline and get six nine or an inverted frontline or black back line where they had their big up front and they had their guards on the baseline go. Okay. This isn't gonNA. Work. So you know I think that there are circumstances that we know are unprecedented for this but I can't I can't sign off on the idea that this is the greatest toughest championship to to ever accomplish what's interesting to me is I've heard people say, well, this is the beginning of a dine another dynasty Lakers like well. Look. I think it's a great accomplishment and I think his leadership and bouncing back from how bad the Juju was. Last year in that building is with the Lakers is big but again, like they didn't play the clippers that next year there probably won't be so fortunate the warriors took the season off my guess would be the nuggets feel like a team. On the rise, right at the Mavericks, the Mavericks are going to be the rockets right they won't actually win because they don't play defense, but they'll still win a bunch of games 'cause they're super talented and offense, and then the other side like dude, the nets are going to be good. Next year if Kerry doesn't ruin them well as a possibility. Fifty fifty shot talented let's say talented you would think the Celtics are going to be better Jason Tatum and those young guys get better and Milwaukee still problem if they ever play them like I think. I The idea that this is the beginning of something when Lebron, this may be the last year. He's able to dial it up as often his he's able to doubt it just reasonable at thirty five years old a kind of thing we should appreciate it while we got it. Yeah I, I look I'm. I'm blown away by this guy. Okay. So you know you're headed into ever say anything negative and it turns you into like Oh. Wait a minute like the other ones that I hear what does it mean for him winning a title with thirteen ridiculous believe guy there's no pop for this because that was the the momentum behind coli. You know why? Because nobody ever did this? You think they've magical didn't have to go anywhere because his teammate nine finals twelve prime years that he had. But what bird looked around at eighty eight and said Hey I'm Outta here you know. Like. Nobody has done this historically so To say it's a greater accomplishment to jump from team to team and with all these titles like it's not a negative but I think it's it's not unprecedented because nobody else could pull it off. It's because somebody else did it So I'm sitting here watching him I actually think he played better maybe than you did in the finals because he's just controlling things in a way that subtle he was it was a really weird first half a game four where felt like everybody was kind of just offer at least Miami clogged up enough. But what Lebron does when he decides okay, you can see these moments. You saw the fourth quarter against Houston, you saw these moments hitting shots against Denver and you're seeing specific times where he's like, okay. Now, I'm going to start driving and then it just kind of just destroys the will of the opponent. So it's not just the raw near triple double numbers for him. I think he's just having these moments games where he takes over it's it's unbelievable that this guy enters the league in two thousand, three's still doing no, no you. And if I if I lead you to believe otherwise I was I'm wrong in that. That's that's the true genius to it's there's there's a little bit like Brady there. Right. That's how I started the show kind of comparing it, which is like he just kinda control everything control everything, and then when you're feeling it and you find your spots now the sudden you still have. The talent to take over and and and like like there's a reason contagious colwell pope is open late in the fourth quarter to hit those shots or that you know Rondo Rondo is able to get Laos because you've got to pay attention to Lebron to Anthony Davis. But you know he's responsible for Anthony. Davis is carrying the team at times quarters one through three in most games. Lebron can take over when everybody else is tired. He has that kind of well of energy that he saved up. He's. Like controlling things and pacing himself and knowing. But just there, there is going to be a point in time where he's going to go to the well and there's nothing there. It's we're not there yet but that day is is coming at some point. Yeah. I don't know when I mean you're right is coming and I would even say there's moments I. Remember there was a time during the Denver series because there was this other thing going around always getting incredibly tired getting tired and I would go through all of their fourth quarters like a lot of these games already decided. Or they let somebody back in late. So the score becomes like middle little misleading. So I don't know that the fourth quarters matter as much. Maybe think and then like I think Torii Craig was on a baseline Spin Dunkel. Up yet he's just because he wasn't twenty five not. That's not what I'm saying but those those bursts are still there. I also think the Rondo part of this is a huge part of the team success because I thought I thought there were times I'm like, what is he doing out there like he looks unplayable and I think Lebron having somebody else that he trusts just to bring the ball up I know it can sound stupid. Speak to this better than I can. But trusting that, hey, that other guy will initiate something good and I trust him as opposed to coups Jack shot up although who's actually played better than I thought he would you know pope who's not really creator on his own Caruso you'd probably want shooting tunnel although you probably you know like stuff that's all that stuff just having somebody with Rondos resume where you go. Okay you can get us into our action I can kinda maybe cut off of this I think that's a huge huge It just a relief for Lebron and not have to have that bird every possession, the court.

What we do to shame, the Tennessee titans for an unauthorized practice. Practice man not a game not a game we talking about practice. And why was right about Dwayne Haskins? Really. Really right about Dwayne Haskins. Let me get to this. So tonight we have Thursday night football and it's the first like real Thursday night football game right? The first couple of like How do we get Jacksonville and the bengals and some of these other crummy teams on Thursday night I, let them all play together. Okay we have Miami Jacksonville and Cincinnati Cleveland like. Proximity. Rivals. But now we got big boy football, and while I don't think anyone believes the bears are legit superbowl contenders Khalil Mack if you look is one is back to playing like one of the top five defensive players football. Tom Brady, and the buccaneers come fresh off a come from behind they show by double digits win at home over the chargers. Now. Brady's team is three and one. And you look. The. At the bears they're coming off of what I think anyone would consider a really really really disappointing performance. Not. Because they lost but because of the fact that the the the bears got out played like I talked to somebody in the bears organization a couple of days ago. Is like man we just laid an egg that just doesn't that should not happen. Should not happen should not be able to. To to sit there and go what how does the team come in? Just kick our tail the way the in Annapolis. Colts it. But that's what happened. So. I think you gotTA motivated bears team. WHO's you know? I probably a playoff team right Like the bears teams like who else made the class. Of the bears yeah. They made us. Are they going to win and and look technically a rematch of foles versus Brady. Over under on how many times phillies specials benching tonight over under Five. Five the the the Adage in broadcasting is if you don't tell a story twice, you didn't tell it. So my guess would be. That, we're GONNA see that replay of. We see the replay affiliate special at least twice tonight how many times would it be mentioned? It was five. I'd take the under two take the over. It will be mentioned. But there's this. There's this thing in sports and I find it fascinating. That we're going to have back to back nights. Of Kind of something similar. Which is older superstar athlete clearly, not what they used to be athletically, but super, maybe highest level of High Sports Iq and do they have enough around them to carry them so that their talents though not what they used to be can still come through in the end. Like look I think Lebron James is going to be amazing tomorrow night. Amazing. He's got an extra day off and he like everybody else in the bubble just wants to go home, and if you look at the Lakers, their close out games, that's when he has played his best basketball is played great. Really poorly, he's been okay for for the Braun. Like Anthony Davis has been a bigger determined in them winning and losing in terms of his production at both ends then Lebron. But. In Game Five, he's going to be amazing but Lebron can't do it every night and he needs dudes around him. He needed to go out and get Anthony Davis, a top five player in the NBA in order for all of his basketball wisdom and frankly is basketball skill to come out. I need you to carry me through the first three quarters and then I can end up icing and finishing the game granted. It was contagious colwell pope who we all knew would come through in the end right all of us at the start of the season like contiguous. Come through in the end. That's a joke. Anyway. The same will happen tonight. because. There's this continuum in in sports right you have this athletic ability. And then you have sports Iq. And when it's right in the middle. that. That's when you have like. Other. Worldly talent, that was Tom Brady. With, Randy, Moss and maybe the story of Tom Brady, which is the most fascinating which I feel like. I yes I know America Dugout filling in for Colin I. Am a bit of a contrarian. But this is not a counter thought. This is a thought that I think sometimes, we don't explore enough. Tom. Brady's peak. He threw fifty touchdown passes. They went undefeated up until the super bowl they lost basically on one or two crazy plays in the super bowl. We didn't get a chance to truly experience Tom Brady's peak because after throwing fifty touchdowns, he got hurt the next year. That's when they were the best team in league. That's when they had elite level talent and soon after the mosque thing started to kind of Sour and you look he was still remember when he decade without winning a super bowl and it wasn't because that wasn't his best football. It was just because of other circumstances and coming off the knee it takes like a year of coming back etcetera etcetera etcetera. But. We're GONNA see tonight and what? What is remarkable about Brady and remarkable about? Lebron is there at the at the peak of the other side of the continuum. Right like absolute football brilliants. I'm not sure people understand exactly how hard it is for Tom Brady to do what he's doing. His guys ever tried to learn a different language in your forties. Like. Lots of our kids are are learning four languages or whatever they do in schools now I zoom whatever. And there's a there's a portion of your brain that apparently close up doesn't completely close up a trips every year after like five or six years old in terms of your ability to learn foreign languages. I tried to learn a Russian. When I was in my twenties and I was okay at it. If I tried in my forties now, I it'd be a disaster. Spoken English. My entire life and English has nuances that make no sense in any other language. But in English does in a Slavic language. or almost like Russian the the train of thought is completely different. I. The the sentence pattern is very, very different. That's Tom. Brady. Tom Brady was essentially in the exact same system and you can tell me hey man they went from you know he wasn't a major part of the offense early then it was screened past green screen pass then the rainy moss and he threw the ball deep downfield a ton, and then they became you know option route crossing route everything on third down underneath with Welker and then to Danny Amendola etc etc.. Right. You can tell me that the Patriots offense changed and metamorphasized itself not just year to year, but sometimes week to week. Yes dollah Julian Ataman Wes welker kind of same guy different. But same guys same routes whatever the thing is all of the terms, all of the verbiage. All of the automatics you get to the line of scrimmage like, ooh, I've seen this before i. know what the answer is. Now you go to Tampa they had completely different I doing things. Outside of Gronk, we barely uses all those other geyser new. And though they got together in a legally through the football at a park in Tampa, they didn't have a true offseason program. You got coach who has been no risk. It throw it down the field sort of guy. All these guys that are learning Tom Brady's way they've never experienced winning and Tom Brady has never experienced a new football language in new verbiage and so you get into the line of scrimmage and you're like a we call this. Bama. Yeah. We call this. California. What do you call it now? And yet, here we are four weeks in the season granted they've played three mediocre teams. They're three and one, and it appears like it's starting to hit its stride. But the true brilliance to Lebron. The true brilliance to Tom Brady that you're going to see the next two nights. Is the understanding of can do this crap by myself anymore I need a couple of guys in football and a guy in basketball to make some plays so that my sports I Q and every once in a while, I can dial up that old level of talent. And be that superstar self that I have. There's lots of things that make you a sports genius. Okay. But the reason bill O'Brien got fired. Is the same reason that Kyrie irving sounded like a jerk last week is that the smartest people know enough to know what they don't know? Right, and the smartest athletes know enough to know what they can't do anymore and get somebody else who can do it for them. I think there'll be times in which Tom Brady will look forty-three. I think that if they can force him off his spot as always been the case and make him feel rushed, he'll be a little bit lost because the offense is very, very different. I'm not sure how good Tampa really is. But you know you got guys in. Tampa. Bay saying of course I believe Tom Brady. He made a couple of plays in the second quarter that made them believe, and then they just took off after that with the chargers last week. Over the next two nights I think you understand the true greatness of great athletes? I don't think Tom, I think Aaron Rodgers, probably the the best quarterback I've ever seen play but Tom, Brady's the most successful for a reason. I'm Jordan Guide Not Lebron Guy. We can get into how we valued this championship versus other championships. But the understanding of where you are athletically the willingness to allow others to make plays that you used to be able to make. That's when you show your true kind of sports acumen true brilliance to me. I coming up next. I'm be critical of the Star quarterback in the NFL that for whatever reason. Whatever reason? Everyone else seems to be ducking and dodging any critique of him. I won't. That's next I'm Doug Godly.

I want the it's very, very important that we start with this as the premise. I love shown watching. Right I think he's tough. I think he's talented. I think he's done a lot of tremendous things during his time as starting quarterback of the Houston Texans. so Inouye. My saying. Dude, you got to bench him or you got to move on from him. Of course, they can't because they signed the second biggest contract. In the history of the sport. And but I do think that this is an absolutely fair way to look at it. Bill O'Brien got fired by the Houston. Texans. On Monday and what's come out since is his confrontational style which we shouldn't be surprised by like. Until he was fired or maybe until he was the head coach of the Texans. What he was most known for was a verbal confrontation with Tom Brady. When they worked together New England like all that. That's how they roll in New England. That Soobee ob was. An and I'm I'm perfectly okay with people saying that Bill O'Brien his arrogance is. Complete Co.. Taking complete control. Train the Andre Hopkins getting into A. J. J. Watt he lost the locker room and that's why you've ultimately lost his job. That's fair. Hey. Hey. How me out? Here. Era ever startling for. Tom Brady Russell. Wilson. Ever Oh four. Give me the star, quarterback. That has ever begun a season outside of maybe their first season in the NFL. Troy Aikman when they're terrible is I like in the prime of their career they've ever started one for now. Look again, I will grant you that they played Kansas, city defending champions on the road, and while they had a see a black as pair, they played Baltimore at home. And then they took on Pittsburgh Pittsburgh Baltimore two very good teams. I would also point out that it's the same Baltimore, defense. That Pat Mahomes ripped to shreds. Right, like these are these are all fair. has found a great running game. Not all his fault. But can somebody tell me why there hasn't been any critique of Sean Watson's play. Look I follow all these guys who I love. Jeff Schwartz Dow works for us. He does a breakdown witherspoon. Was Pretty Cool right like I'm stirring coffee and now point a Dan Orlovsky former quarterback. There's there. I haven't seen one piece of tape showing me like what's not working with the Houston Texans. Now Look Gin I'm not saying he should get all of the blame. Half of the bling. But like Dak Prescott is setting records in Dallas. And there are many people myself included like, Hey, that's great. But down three scores, lots of people put up numbers. What'd you do in the first half? Your defense may be a disaster, but you gotTa keep your team in it. When your defense is just a sieve. Like we can say what we want about the Atlanta Falcons. And their inability to have a lead. But they had these big leads because there are times in which Matt Ryan is actually. balling. They. Had they had a huge lead over the cowboys 'cause Matt Ryan was putting them in position to have those big leads. Same thing. The very next week against was the bears. Cowboys don't have that. So at least that's not what's happening with the Texans. They're bad. Their offense is fairly. One game thrown over three hundred. He's not the same runner he used to be nor should he be because that's one of the things that led them getting hurt and college, and in the pros and playing with a collapsed after a collapsed lung a couple years ago like dudes a warrior gay got kicked in the face with a Clayton threw touchdown passes one I last year I'm not trying to tell you extinct now like him I'm just saying, don't tell me the Desha Watson's not is playing well and not part of the problem when his teams Oh and four and they lost the Minnesota Vikings. Some of the blame should go on Teflon to Sean and it's not it's really weird. Wants Superbowl. Hen, got into it. AFC championship game. has won MVP. He just we love him because he won champion but Clemson, and because I put up six number, six numbers of rookie got hurt. He's been really really good and he's really really tough and he's fun and he's likable all these things but is he really only quarterback? No, he's in second highest paid guy in the league. It seems And everything is Bill O'Brien Villalba Hey the one thing we think bill O'Brien can do is offensive football pretty good at it And their offense. All the Andrea. Hopkins I don't think so. Why does he escape all criticism? Some explain that one to me. You know critical Lamar when he has one bad game against the chiefs in his third year of starter. No one says a word when they're Owen Foreign Houston, it's got the jungle with the news. On the news, this is the third line. So Doug, we had some kind of bad news coming out of Tennessee this morning, a titans player tested positive for Kovin another one they also found member yesterday to people tested positive one was inconclusive. Inconclusive is now back to being a confirmed positive, very confusing just by all bad news titans facility Will remain close, which also did not stop the titans from practicing last week news came out yesterday. Some of the players gathered at a local school Day of last week in order to practice their head coach Mike Gabel said that players were told not to do that. Here's gets interesting. The titans are. Scheduled to play the bills on Sunday, do you think? Bill's mother they might have to push the game back while the camp. The bills are supposed to play the chiefs next Thursday, which is awesome. Let's not ruined that game Diana Rossini of ESPN is reporting that there's been some discussion of pushing the bills titans game to Monday or Tuesday, and then pushing the Thursday game bills chiefs back to potentially Saturday these ultras reports. The NFL handled us. Yeah, I'd look I think you'd delay delay delay as much. Can you don't have them anymore by weeks? And I think you know anyone who's tested positive. I think you have to eliminate them from their roster and if they have to throw backups out there, that's part of the that's gotta be their punishment for practicing look I. I understand that the punishment they may receive would be extra harsh not because they had an unauthorized practice because they were. They were told not to have an unauthorized practice, right? Like that's a real. Remember bountygate like the saints have you believe that they never had really real bounties and the NFL came down and put these harsh punishments on them and it was unfair. That's not what happened. They found out there having bounties. They told them came and met with them and said under no uncertain circumstances. Do you have boundaries and then there's tape of Greg Williams the night before they're gonNA play the packers and the NFC championship game saying that they have bounties and then players coming off the field saying pay me my money. So it wasn't just that they had bounties that's player safety, but they also were told specifically not to have boundaries. So I do think that they're going to get a punishment but I. have. The context of it was September twenty nine. The thing that just gone down the day before. Lots of guys in Tennessee are in denial of all this stuff to begin with and at the time everybody thought their game last week would just be moved to Monday or Tuesday. Hey, we're still gonNA play Pittsburgh they still practice and we're not gonNA practice and we're undefeated like, no, no, no. No we have to get this thing in. So I give them a little bit more of a pass. I don't think it some growed egregious sin, but if I'm the NFL Yeah I delay as much as I can try and get the game in this you know this week on Monday or Tuesday and then push that she came back the chiefs have I think three and eleven days they shouldn't be punished because of what happened in Tennessee Fair and finally the dodgers won a wild game last night in. Texas over the Padre six, five tickets to host series lead the highlight of the game cody bellinger dodgers centerfielder cody bellinger. Strikes and TAT tease the fly ball to center field and deep going back to the wall leaps and make take spectacular catch cody bellinger Rob's tat. Tease of a two run home run his glove was six or seven inches over the yellow line in straight away center a spectacular catch things got a little heated after that. Yeah. Between Manny Machado. Top. Bat Flip earlier in the game Let's say some of the dodgers let's say they told Machado to leave. Is that a fair way of politely putting what they told him PADRES. Had a chance to win the ninth had the bases loaded after dodgers closer question-mark Kenley Jansen loaded the basis Joe Kelley came in and got out of it. I think you're going to have. Yeah I think you're gonNA probably see some more fireworks in tonight's game three. Yes first of all, the series is awesome. Padres a real and they're spectacular and they clearly don't like the dodgers. The feeling is mutual. It's amazing I just wish it was played for fans and the home stadiums like they're playing at dodger stadium they're playing at Petco the dodgers and padres aren't playing dodger statement PETCO. Strike anybody else's bizarre. They play both stadiums just not with the actual teams that play stay in that doesn't make any se
