Is Russell Wilson becoming the Caesar salad candy cane. Football players. Yes. That's dangerous. It's dangerous.

"Bowl 57. As well. I will not be surprised to see so many season preseason predictions that this first game is going to be the last one as well. And I've got to say that that's not an overreaction. That is not an overreaction. I mentioned how the bills actually got better. Bill's got better in the off season. They made some moves on their offensive line? They also drafted James cook. Folks, that is the number one sneakiest good draft choice of 2022 James cook being drafted by the bills lookout. And the rams when we spoke to McVeigh and it's just like it was similar to when I was interviewing the general manager Joe Douglas of the jets talking about all their moves in the draft and turned into like the Chris Farley show. From Saturday Night Live, remember that? And so that Bobby Wagner is going to be on. Remember Aaron Donald said he didn't want to play, but now he's back. That's awesome. Now Bobby Wagner's behind him. That's awesome. Remember when, you know, I mean, Odell got hurt, but now you got Alan Robinson, that's awesome. We didn't even talk about Cooper Cup until like ten minutes into the conversation. Right. And Odell might join him. Halfway through the year, like last night. Not an overreaction. I don't know if that's going to be my preseason pick, but I know when people conventionally, it becomes a conventionally wise conversation. It sounds like.

Answering your questions, talking about what's going on in the world of movies, talking about what's inside of my brain. Maybe what's inside of Bobby's brain, Bobby? What's inside your brain right now? The mets, baby. The mets are inside my brain. I don't plan on answering any of these questions. I plan on just asking them and allowing you to do all the hard work. Okay, well, maybe we should just cut to the chase and let the hard work begin. I appreciate that there is at least one met's question in here. We may divert some of these conversations back to the mets, but for the most part, we'll try to focus on movies. So where are we starting? Jay asks, why do you think Netflix gets the most shit for quote unquote, killing cinema? Tough one off the top. What a tough one for Netflix, yeah. The stock price is struggling. People sadly have lost their jobs already. It sounds like more jobs are going to be lost..

Back here on the rich eisen show terrestrial radio network where we've been trying to give verbal hugs to TJ Jefferson Dallas cowboy fan. The fact that Bobby Wagner's here in Los Angeles, not the Dallas Cowboys, and he even knew the schedule that the cowboys were on the rams schedule, so I turned to my Los Angeles Rams season ticket holders. Big fans over there those two big things. You understand that del twoo considers himself a better season ticket holder than you. Because he has more and more. Yeah, because he has more discretionary income. I invested in. But I went to more games. Doesn't matter. I work on Sundays. I would go to every game if I were off on Sunday. A 100%.

"Kyla Murray, you know, just got there not too long ago. And so I feel like there's definitely moments because of that because of him, you know, guys like him. And just him being willing to open up, you know, when I reached out to him, I can't remember when I reached out to him. It was a while ago. We met in person, and then I got his phone number and I reached out to him. He's always been so open with everything. What is he telling you? What do you think he's what is he downloaded you with the most? Man, I'm just picking his brain on everything. I've always known that about him. He knows the play before it comes. And I've asked him to watch film. We've watched film. You know, we've taken notes. We've worked out before. Together. And so how he's handled me is made me want to be that same way with the guys that's coming after me because he was like my Jordan, you know, watching growing up. He was the guy that I watched, you know, playing, and I wanted to be like him, and I wanted to, you know, prepare the way that he prepared. And so to get the opportunity to have him sit down with me and kind of break down film and break down how he broke down the game and the level of discipline that it takes to play at a high level for 17 years. You know, it's just crazy. And so, you know, I try to inspire to be that same way. And to have a guy like that be open and willing to give that information out. He's definitely helped me. He's like, from a study in aspect, there are moments where I'm just like, I know to play. I know where it's coming. And I just go get in this from the film study, but it's also from, you know, older guys like that and so many others that have shared their knowledge of the game with me and I'm hoping I do the same as I can continue to grow. I guess a couple of follow-up questions on that, then who are the guys in the game today? Do you think that you could be able to mentor in that guy? Just a lot of them, man, you know, Darius Leonard, Devin white. He's so good. Fred Warner roquan Smith, it's so many of them. I know I'm going to leave some of them. I know. You know, I like watching Eric Kendricks play. There's so much good linebacker play, and I really enjoy where the position is elevated to because we are the quarterbacks of the defense, and we are the guys that kind of set everything up. Majority of the times. And so, you know, to be in that position and to have the world start to see, this is how we run a defense, you know, for the most part, most defenses, you know, if they're ran by the middle linebacker. And so to have those guys, you know, be performing at such a high level. It's amazing to watch. And then the quarterback that I was Michael Parsons too. I don't know if he's kind of going all over the place, but especially when he was here, he was here too. I saw he was a chair. Yeah, yeah. You know, I like it, 'cause I won't do that the first one. I wait for the second. That sounds fine, Bobby. That sounds fine. And the quarterback that you mentioned, obviously, that they're different in the division now. So then the one that I would think that you would have a history with because you played some big games against would be Aaron Rodgers maybe. Right. Would that be? What's that like going against him? He is so fun to play against because he really makes you make sure you're on your game, you know, not just from a physical standpoint, but mental standpoint. And two, I always like playing against the rams because they watch stuff that I do on film and I know they're gonna put it in the next game. And so there was like one particular game where when we were playing the rams, like whenever they motion and running back out or I knew they weren't throwing them the ball and I kind of didn't really play it and I knew they weren't going there. So the next time we play them, I knew they saw that. And so I was like, all right, they're going to run and run it by screen at some point. And so that kind of like chess moves where it's like, it may not happen in this game, but it'll happen the next day. And you know they've seen it and you know, I know he's saying I'm like knowing them, I know they seen that. I know they know they didn't throw to that. They're running back and not I wasn't even acknowledging it because I knew they weren't going to throw it. I knew going into that next game. They were going to find a way to put that in there just to have me play it honest. And so that's something, but Aaron Rodgers does that too. He's able to read the defense. He's able to, no matter how much you disguise, no matter how much you move around, like he's able to read everything and the thing that he don't get enough credit for in my opinion is his ability to escape. Not people he won't go for like 60 yards. He'll sneak in and get a couple of first downs that extends to drive and you know he's still a master at looking people off. And so he's a person I enjoy playing against whenever I get the opportunity. He's a king of reaching the ball out too. Did you get an extra yard as he's running? Yeah, for sure. For sure, you try to swipe it away. Colin Murray does that as well. I know. So what'd you say over there, Chris? Bobby, you wore 54 forever in Seattle, but that's already taken. And now, are you going to change your number this year? Have you figured that out yet? Yeah, I'm going to go with 45. I just figured I'd just flip it. There it is. There it goes. It wasn't really about 54, 54 was never really the number, the number was really 9. I only wore numbers at equal 9. And so I wore 9 in college and then when I came out for the senior bowl, I wore 45. And then at that time, they weren't letting linebackers wear 40 numbers. And so I went to 54 just because of equal 9. And so now that it's taken, I just flipped it, it still equals 9. You don't want to talk about it. It's still happy. Yeah. Yeah. I think it's a start. We start fresh 45. I'm back in LA like Jordan..

"Very happy. I'm not applied and I'm angry. I'm just a cowboy fan. Gee, Bobby. I know what you play twice. I mean, I know Seahawks fans what they feel about you, how they feel about you in particular. And this is not a slide against Russ at all. I mean, he's a Russell Wilson. But when he went, it kind of was if you will expect it. I think the fan base had been seeing what was the conversation or reading tea leaves and you were totally different story though. The fact that I've spoken to so many Seahawks fans that when you were the one to be cut later on that on top of the rust leaving same day, very difficult. I think this is going to be a very difficult process for them. What about you going back up there? What are you thinking about? I think the feeling's mutual. Like I said, I think we both from the fan base to myself expected myself to be there the whole time. That's been a conversation up until, you know, I left, even from the management, the management was always like, man, this is the one that's gonna play it so creator. And I wanted that, you know, I never, I never wanted to leave. You know, so I felt that through the community, 'cause I still, you know, I live out there. So, you know, when I would go to the grocery store, when I go out, people would like come up to me and tell me, you know, how they felt. And so I definitely appreciated the love after that time. And even before that time, but two, it's something, you know, I think it was unfortunate that, you know, the way my career ended in Seattle, it ended off of an injury. And you know, I was looking forward to I'm fully healthy coming back and not letting that be the last play that on the field. And so, you know, it won't be the last play on the field. I just will be in a different Jersey. So why do you think it had to end? Why do you think this happened in Seattle, not just you, but Ross? Is there something you could share with the Seahawks fans who were sitting there saying why? I'm not sure. I hadn't had a conversation with Pete or John on what was the reasoning? Why or why they wanted to do what they did. They just kind of just flat out just told me and we just moved on from the conversation, but if I'm knowing the business, I'm assuming that they just want to go young. And they want to get younger and they feel like that's the way. So why rust to anything you can share with that with Russ? I'm not sure a Russ got to speak on that. And they got to speak on Russian and Pete and those guys got to speak on, you know, what happened on that side, I can only speak on my side. What about DK Metcalf? Do you think he's next to go? I don't think that would be wise. I think I don't know what their plan is. I used to be there all the time and we would have a lot of conversations so I could be able to kind of let you know what they were thinking from that standpoint, but I'm not there anymore. So I just think it wouldn't be why it's less somebody that amazing that talented, you know, a growing leader in not only the building, but a community. To let him go as well, and it was just be very, very hard for that Seattle fan base. So I'm hoping that they do the right thing with him and you know he stays there and he continues to excel, he's an amazing, amazing, talented player, but even more talented and amazing person off the field. When you get to know him as he opens up, he's going to be so good for that community. So, you know, I hope, I hope that community and the fan base get to enjoy him. You know, for a long time. Before I let you go, Bobby Wagner, in that chair, just about what three weeks ago Ray Lewis sat in it. And your name came out of his mouth and he spoke glowingly of you and you guys connect every now and then he talked about how you guys connect and also one of the things that I know this about ray, but I think a lot of folks who heard him talk just his knowledge of the game. And the X's and O's and how he would match wits with Brady and Manning and things of that nature and how he would he would know the play before they would call it and he knew that they knew that he would know it and that he would deliver the punishment to the player that he knew was going to be targeted. And they knew it too, and that's the sort of thing. Do you have that situation with a quarterback in the league today that you can kind of lay it out for me? That's sort of knowledge of the game inside here. I think the difference between with ray, he played paint Manning all the time, played, guys like Tom Brady all the time. You know, I think our division has been different because the quarterbacks in our division have constantly kind of switched out next Africa just got there..

"Chance to have successful deals life after football. So you're going through your free agency, right? And how many teams did you end up chit chatting with? I honestly, I had to reach out to all of them because you were the one who called. I sent a text. So NFL PA had this, you know, I guess like with agents do it or with teams do it the gyms have the list of all the players and next to the player's name is agent. So I'm pretty sure my name was blank. So I got a list of all the GMs and I texted them and just let them know that I was still representing myself and this is how they could reach me. And so I talked with a few that day when some of them text back when that first day and then a lot of them had to, I guess they had to check to see if that was actually me. They texted me was like, I had a couple of them text me the next day like, hey, sorry for the late response. We had to confirm we thought this was a joke. We didn't think that you were actually texting us from your cell phone. And so did somebody ask a question? When I once upon a time met you at the kanban, what did you say to this answer? Up front. They were like, yeah, we didn't think we had to confirm the identity of this text message before we responded. That's amazing. And I didn't even think about that. I just thought, you know, you get a text message from me, you just going to assume it's me, but I forgot that, you know. This crazy people in the world. They're a crazy piece. Which is kind of funny, though, because the alternative of that. I had got some text messages or phone calls, like, hey, yo, we're interested. And I'm just like, this sounds like a little kid on the phone. But I had to, I had to answer every phone call, you know what I mean? Because you don't know, I didn't have every GM's number saved. And so I'm answering all the phone calls and I get one from, and as soon as the person says, hey, we're interested in signing you and I'm like, this is a little kid. There's no way. Somebody from the analytics department. I don't know. They didn't have no pitch in their voice, for sure. They definitely definitely 12 years old. Would you say talk to Bill? Is that what you're saying? I have so much respect for Bill though. I think it's mutual. Coach Belichick. Oh, I know that. For sure. I'm sure I'm sure it's mutual. But you could tell what Jerry Jones sounds like, right? I mean, for sure. For sure. I'm just saying, there's certain people you know that, you know what their voice sound like, but this person or kid. I knew he didn't know the first thing about being a kid. Because that was the first thing I thought of is that Dan Quinn is in Dallas, you and dank went obviously. We're on the same team. Winning championship together, and that was going to be the place that you wound up. Was that yeah, we had a conversation. He was one of the first people that reached out and we had a lot of conversations, but you know, they couldn't, they didn't really figure it out. You know, from a financial situation, but also they had other needs that they wanted to address first. And they addressed those needs. Okay, I know you're looking directly at me, but I'm seeing past you to my guy TJ Jefferson who's a die hard cowboy fan. He is so upset right now. He just hurt you. And you know, it's crazy though, 'cause, you know, I'm not really active so much on social media, but every single day, I was getting hit up by Dallas fans and telling me where I could eat. Where I could live. Who's been there? How nice would it be to have a star on the top of your helmet? I'm sorry for bothering you, Bobby, on those two cells. Two jiggy? No, I didn't get no tattoos. I got a bunch of burners. I apologize. We just really wanted you. That's funny. So when did the rams come into the picture, Bobby? Look at that happen. Ramsay's kind of always in the picture to be honest. Because, you know, obviously we play, we play each other a lot. And so, and they know I'm from, I'm from Cali. So they reached out early on too, but it was the same thing for a minute. They were just trying to figure out they had certain needs that they wanted to address and things of that nature. And I was in a position where I was patient. I didn't, I wasn't in a rush to try to sign somewhere because I knew I'm hoping that wherever I signed next was going to be my place I spent a majority of my career as I wanted this thing down. So I wanted to take my time and make sure that I picked the right place and, you know, who doesn't want to come home? Of course, no question about that. And I get to be on the wrist. And so every week. This is the cherry on top. I mean, you could just put it. You know what I'm saying? Listen, look, you're welcome here anytime. And now you also remember what LA traffic is. Sometimes rams are like, they want a helicopter to come from Thousand Oaks. I mean, this is very true because it's about to say. Nothing matches California. I know that. Midnight. It could be midnight. You might get stuff in there. And sensitive roadway, that 405. For no matter what time it is, I understand. Did Aaron Donald, Jalen Ramsey, anybody call you up and said they reached out. I mean, as soon as I got as soon as I got released, I think AD was the first person to reach out. Jalen was like shortly after him. So I can't imagine what he, Aaron Donald, will be able to do in front of you and you behind him. I can not even imagine how his job to take up space to apply pressure to stop the run on the way to the quarterback. How great he is for you now to be behind him is downright scary. I'm excited. I'm excited just thinking about it 'cause again, he's a guy I've watched, you know, for a lot of years because we played each other so much. And, you know, I watched film on them too, and so I see the way that he plays and moves and things like that and how he takes up blocks and, you know, I know that I'd be able to read off of that and play off of that really well. So just the idea of being able to do that. And it's not just him. There's so many different weapons on that D line. And to be able to play behind that and read and feel and get into a flow, let's say it's going to be crazy. Chris, you have the NFL rule book in front of you. Is this fair? Is that a section 8 sub a fair? Not fair. Article 45. So we all did. It does not seem to be. Those are.

"Lit up. We were like, you learned about it on TV before you heard about it from then they played their ten years crazy part about it. I didn't even hear it from them that I wasn't coming back. I just felt like I just felt like they could have went about it this situation a little bit different. I felt like we could have had a conversation and I felt maybe because I was my own agent and I was representing myself that it was a hard conversation to say like, hey, you know, we think about letting you go or thinking about trade and you were anything like that, but you know I feel like we've been I've had hard conversations with them for ten years. We've been a part of each other's lives for ten years and so whether I had an agent or whether there was a middleman, I still would have felt the same way if I didn't hear from them directly because I was just in the building. I was there. I was just, you know, I don't live that far from the facility, so I'm constantly there in the building all the time, but you know, I think they think I have this hatred in my heart or I feel some type of way about them or hate them or anything like that. It's not that. I just felt like they didn't handle it. I addressed that with them. I told them how I felt about it. And you know, I think both parties moved on. I don't have no ill feelings towards Pete towards John towards Jody. I have no ill feelings towards him. So it's one of those things where, you know, me understanding the business, I understood it, but I felt like with certain guys you should have had at least had a conversation. I had to approach them to confirm. And then that's when they say, hey, why don't you come in and at that point in time you're saying that? Yeah, we was supposed to have a meeting, but I knew the answer. I knew what they were going to say already. So I was like, why? I wasn't in, I wasn't in town. So I was like, why would I get on a plane? For you to tell me what I already know. And so I was just like, let's just, let's do it now. Let's not wait. Why would we wait if I already know I've heard from everybody else? So Bobby Wagner here are 8 time pro bowler here on the rich eisen show now at the Los Angeles Rams. Why do you represent yourself? Why do you do that? Because I feel like, you know, football football is just a window in my life that I have so much more. And when I got into the league, I realized that a lot of guys don't think about that. Now guys don't prepare for life at the football, so when they get done, they don't know what to do with themselves. And we've been so focused on this one particular thing for so long that, you know, when you get done, it's very hard to make that transition. So when I got into the league, you know, I watched guys like Marshawn, I watched guys like Sidney rice, I watched those guys prepare and as they transitioned to life after football, it was just, it was amazing. So inspired me. So I knew that business was one of the things that I wanted to get into, so I started to do like different internships in the off season. I started meeting different people in Seattle just to kind of pick their brains and then I felt like representing myself in my field was the closest thing that I can get to business without actually leaving football to go actively do it. And so I started pursuing it. So after my after my second deal, I think in like 2014, give or take. I picked up the CBA, I read it. And then I started just learning, meeting with different people, studying and preparing myself and I knew like my next contract I was going to do it myself and I felt like that was going to prepare me for life at the football. Well, I mean, it certainly can prepare you in different ways for I guess the realities of this business for sure. And I mean, I'm more of a verbal guy. I'm not a man. I'm not a number guy at all. I honestly don't know how you're doing it. I don't know how to even figure out what cap number and how you can work it. So you know that you will be on a roster as opposed to leaving yourself open to getting cut because your money is in certain guaranteed and know where that is in terms of the cap two years from now and three years from now and what the roster composition is. That is while you're deciding also the football pluses and minuses of going where you're going to go. I don't know how you do it. I think it exposes you, exposes you to different things. I think this contract is definitely an NFL contract is different because, like you said, in different fields, your money is your money. Once you negotiate your deal, no matter what it is, you know it's coming. But the NFL is a little bit different because, you know, you can negotiate a contract, but there's different provisions in there that gets the team out of the deal if they want to get out of the deal. And so like I said, I feel like if I can learn this contract, I think a lot of the other contracts out there would be not easy, but it gives my foundation a better.

And I know there will be some match ups that let's say they play MB, right? When they get to, you know, at some point, we're assuming for them knock on whatever. Deandre ayton, what's going to happen? When you got some big, big grown ass man right there in the middle. And you're sending out draymond green to go cover them because he's the tallest guy. They got Looney. Well, I'm not saying they can't match up with them. I'm saying, what happens when you have to match up with them an extended period of time? What happens if the shooting is a little off and the other team gets to dictate? That's gonna be the warrior's problem. Over a 7 game series if that happens, but right now, oh baby. Would you say please your favorite player? Huh? Would you say Jordan pulls your favorite player right now? Right now? Of course, because he's a Wolverine who's dominating and I was right about it. Put them all together in a gun in this position. Oh, yes. And just again, you thought, okay, curry's little banged up, clay hasn't played in a while, right? And then how are you going to put it all together? How are you going to, where are you going to get some of the scoring when these guys go on the bench? What's going to happen? And Jordan Poole arrives and says, I'm a superstar too. Who would have thought? The warriors with curry and clay and draymond. All together, you'd thought the warriors that would have to be the core. From which they win a championship. And the other players. Right. There are 80 to bench. Yeah. Who would have thought the warriors would add another superstar. And you thought it would be wiseman. You choose a guy first overall, right? Get it? Second overall, top pick? Your first overall pick? That's the guy. Of course he's going to be a superstar. No, it's Jordan Poole. Hey now, look out. I'm so psyched. For the dubs and the warrior fans and all of us who get to watch Jordan Poole still do it. And yogic gets the gate. Nuggets are just wondering what the hell has hit them. So, lots to talk about on this program, certainly when you've got two National Football League head coaches. Certainly when you've got NFL programs off season workout programs up and running, Kevin O'Connell of Vikings and also Arthur Smith of the Atlanta Falcons, another top notch wide receiver, has apparently messed with his Instagram bile, causing everybody to wonder if there's a problem between him and his team. We'll talk about that on this show and you at 8 four four two O four rich is the number to dial. But we've got a hell of an in studio guest. Hell of an inch studio guest because he is a hellraiser of the first variety, and he's going to the pro football Hall of Fame, and he's now here in Los Angeles behind Aaron Donald. Number 45 in your program number one in the new Los Angeles Rams heart, and it's puts a dagger in the heart of Seahawks fans. Bobby Wagner in studio in person to talk about with him when we come back. I am genuinely excited to introduce my in studio guest here because I am a huge fan of his and I will stop talking about him as if he is not sitting here. But you know how I feel about you, Bobby Wagner, good to see you here in franchise show. I'm excited to be in person on the show. Yes. Instead of being on the phone. Should have been on the phone. So it's nice. Nice to be in person. All it took was you leaving the Seattle Seahawks. Los Angeles. With us. So I'm just finding all the positives in this. So this is definitely positive. Well, let's just walk through all of this. I mean, your head must still be spinning a little bit, I'd imagine based on everything that's happened over the last few weeks. No, or yes. No, it's kind of settling down now. I think initially when everything happened, it was, like I said, I always thought I was going to be in Seattle forever. I thought, you know, you watch guys like Ray Lewis and you know those guys play their whole career one team that was my vision. And when it didn't happen, you know, you had to take a moment to realize in Seattle anymore. Then you had to figure out where you're going to go, and then, you know, when I ended up coming to LA, I thought it was nice because I was still going to be able to be close to Seattle and be in front of fan for the first time since the thing high school. So it worked out for him. So let's take it one piece at a time then. The leaving Seattle thing that thing. Took you by surprise? Bobby? It did take me by surprise because I felt like I understood that there was going to be some changes and I knew that things were going to look a lot different. And I knew me and Russ was the last ones that kind of been able to last from that Super Bowl team. And I thought there was going to be like a conversation. Just let me know, but it didn't happen that way. And so when I saw Russ kind of leave, I knew that there was a chance at my time. There was coming to an end as well. So that Tuesday, it was a wild day. When Russ departs to go to Denver, did you get any heads up about that, or you just learned about that too? Well, no, I knew about it. The funny thing was, you know, he actually called me a few days before, maybe even a week before. And just, you know, ask me what was my thoughts about going there. And I was just like, I don't have any thoughts. My heart is in Seattle, so I ain't really went that far. And so I knew that it was really close for him to call me and kind of to ask me a question like that. I feel like to going to Denver specifically. And that happened in February or something like that? I'm not sure the exact time, but it happened before it happened. You know, I knew there was a chance that that was going to happen. So I was just like, okay, well, he's probably leaving. He's probably leaving. So I should probably get prepared for sure. Right. So, and then it happens. And that's when it starts to hit you. You could be next is that kind of her rumblings before. I heard, you know, because I'm really close to all the players and really close with some agents. I'm really close with some guys in the media. And so I think I really started to get an idea when the combine hit, 'cause I heard a lot of a lot of stuff. And so, you know, with Russ hit, I was having a conversation with DK, you know, was talking with quandre and they were just kind of telling me some of the things that they were hearing. And so I just thought it was wise for me to pick up the phone and call Pete and John to see if some of the things that I was hearing was was true. And did you connect with them? Yeah. You know, I got in contact with them. They wanted me to come out there in person, but I just was kind of like, I already knew that I already knew what was going to be said. I knew it was about to happen. I know this is tough for you to talk about and I appreciate you being talking about it here because I saw in your Twitter account..

And I thought the raptors would give the sixers a series so far two games and it's not at all. The sixers played so well. They even had a blowout and a Gus Johnson called basketball game. How does that happen? I'm gonna go positive that the raptors didn't ruin a Gus Johnson game. The sixers just wrecked the buffet, okay? And they look terrific and now they have to go up to Toronto and of course will not be there, but tyrese maxi has arrived when James Harden got acquired. I'm like, I think this is going to unlock maxi and the three of them. Embiid maxi harden look out. And then about my boy Harris. And then sure, Tobias Harris, too. I'm just pointing out what I thought would be that the threesome and in terms of some points and rebounds and what have you, Joel embiid 31 and 11 last night, nicely done. So, and then the Mavericks. Congratulations to you. And to the fanbase and the Mavericks, Jalen Brunson, hello. Jeez. Okay. 41 piece last night of the 40 burger last night, just when you thought that the jazz would take advantage of another Luka Dončić mavericks night, the Mavs get 41 from their dynamic young player and they even the series up, they made 22 from three, that's a franchise postseason record. They were filling it up. And that's the way to beat Rudy Gobert shoot over. And one ten one O four, the final there. But I like talking about my warriors. Oh boy. I said before the season. Warriors overnights. You did? Yes, it did. Maybe? I shorted it. Into this microphone in this chair on this show. And you know, curries hurt and who knows? They finished just the three seed sons look great. They got the coach of the year we were all think locked up. Memphis Grizzlies, you know, who knows? They're the two seed, they're that young and up and coming team and holds on and so forth. But how about my guy, Jordan Poole? Jordan Poole. Jordan Poole, baby. Finishes up with 29 last night to follow up his 30 point game in his playoff debut. Do you know there's only two? Gentlemen who have ever put on a Golden State Warriors uniform who scored more than 25 points in each of their first two career playoff games. One is named Jordan Poole. The other's name is will Chamberlain. Wilt Chamberlain. Heard of him. Wow. Okay. Jordan Poole just put his name next to world Chamberlain. In a scoring record and we'll leave it at that. Because Jordan Poole is all that in the biscuit. He has said yesterday zero chill, zero chill. And he is coming at you and he's getting better. He's getting better. He is a budding superstar in this league. A budding superstar in this league and what a huge night for him last night, especially since Steph Curry was out hurt and hold on a minute. I'm being told no curry came off the bench again. Okay, hold on a minute. Genius. Curry comes off the bench again. I love it. And all he does is come up with the first game in his career. Of playing fewer than 25 minutes in a game and scoring more than 30. He's never done that. And he did it last night. Minutes restriction my you know what? Going tan those. 34 points for assist three route three rebounds one block, one steel, 20 of 17 shooting. That's the best field goal percentage shooting night of his playoff career. Wow. I'm on done yet, guys. Keep going, rich. I'm not done yet, guys. There's a new lineup in the National Basketball Association that's one big ball at trouble. Because Andrew Wiggins made All-Star Game this year as well. And Klay Thompson's back and he's just everything he does is now gravy. It's not like you gotta have it. Need it, must have it. It's nice to have it. The cherry on top. Pool Wiggins, curry green and Klay Thompson. First two games, you know they've been on the floor just ten minutes, you know that? 42 to 14 eve outscored the nuggets when they've been on the floor. And let's just, let's just go with the new triplet. I'm sorry to do this to anybody that I'm leaving out, especially draymond green is going to go to the Hall of Fame. Clay curry and pool together. First two games, 149 points combined. 56% from the field, 51% from three, 26 to 51. In less than 20 minutes of time last night, when they all got on the floor together, they blew the doors off the Denver Nuggets and then an MVP got so pissed. He.

"And I want to start by maybe we'll do this tomorrow. Maybe I'm going to I have a little bit of a spiel to give you. But I'm going to sit on it. We got three topics left. We'll do them real quick. Then we'll do tomorrow's episode as well. Not today, obviously. But tomorrow you'll hear another episode, we'll have ask Zach. We'll have a couple more similar topics. And then at the end of that episode tomorrow, I've got like a little update for you guys to tell you about something happening. And stay tuned. For now though, let's talk about Minnesota. Last year I predicted that the Minnesota Vikings would go 9 and 8. And it's weird because I wasn't that far off, like the reality is that when 8 and 9, but that one win made a huge difference and also I had them as a wild card playoff team. And they very much were not that. The Vikings massively underachieved, and what really went wrong for the Vikings, well, their defense ranked 30th out of 32 teams in the NFL at the bottom of the NFL. That's what happened with this Vikings defense. And Minnesota had a defensive minded head coach Mike Zimmer, you can't have a defensive head coach and a terrible defense. And massively underachieving, you know, part of what happened with some of the defensive players they brought back didn't work out their older veterans. They fired Mike Zimmer, they moved on. Now last year the strength of this football team in Minnesota was their offense. Kirk, cousins, their quarterback is not perfect. But he threw for 4221 yards, 33 touchdowns, only 7 interceptions. Dalvin cook, they're running back. And only 13 games ran for 1159 yards. That's over a thousand yards rushing. They got two dead receivers, Justin Jefferson and Adam Thielen. And after the year ended Minnesota made a couple of changes that I liked. I had a new GM. They also hired a new head coach, Kevin O'Connell, who was the rams offensive coordinator. He's a former NFL quarterback. Young guy only 36 years old. I love it. I really, really like what's happening here. Minnesota is leaning into the strength of their football team. Their offense. They're like, look, we are not winning any games with defense. We realize what we have. All our best players, all our best talents on the offensive side of the football. We need to maximize and get the most out of that side of the ball. And now you got a young head coach with cool new ideas. Hopefully who can elevate the offense, get the most out of Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, Dalvin cook..

"You have Matt Ryan now. Be happy and move on. It's clear. It didn't work. He got rid of cars. Nobody thought you loved Carson Wentz. He got rid of him after one year. For pennies. You know, I don't know. It does confirm my theory that Jim irsay was the driving force behind the colts getting rid of Carson. But fine, if you want to take shots, go ahead, I guess, Jim or say, although I forgot to do that, if Jim Mercer is gonna take shots, you know, let's remind the world that Jim irsay is the owner who once hired a terrible general manager, Ryan grigson. Who wasted and ruined Andrew Luck's career. That guy was hired by Jim irsay. Oh, so you have to throw stones, I'll catch him and throw him right back at you, man. I don't know. I felt like Jim irsay taking shots at Carson was totally unnecessary. I don't hate Jim Mercer. He does a lot of cool stuff in the colds community. This was a moment where I was like, why? Why do I do this? I don't understand. And it was funny Carson put something on Twitter. It was like a picture of him driving some kind of tractor or backhoe. And it said, building a higher road. And it was I'm sponsored post with a backhoe or something, some tractor looking thing. And that's all Carson did. He's like, I guess I'm taking the high road. I'm building a higher road. And I like that. I don't know. I don't know, he even needed to do that much, but it's weird to have a billionaire owner come out and trash Carson went. It's like, I just don't, I don't see the sense in that. It was very needless. There's probably some PR and marketing reason why he did it. Trying to save face for the colts and help their fan. I don't know. But I'm not a big fan of when people come out and just trash other people.

"Shares pretty eager to make some tackles against his former football team. Now, another cool part of this story, by the way. Bobby Wagner is from the LA area. He was born in LA. He's going home. Good for him, gets to play in his hometown. Got a pretty decent contract. I think he's going to play for probably three years in LA before he gets cut. It'll be too old and not up to par and not worth his contract, but hey, it's awesome. And I'm very much going to enjoy watching Bobby Wagner. The next year or two play in LA and probably be dominant and maybe be competing for another Super Bowl. So I like to move. I go back to this. Will he still be playing in 5 years by the end of this contract? Probably not. Okay. Another, that's a big news story. It's not really a, it's a change in the NFL. The NFL announced new overtime rules during the NFL playoffs. Here is a statement the NFL put out. The NFL said this. Both teams will have an opportunity to possess the ball in overtime in the postseason. Remember, this is not during the regular season. This is the key. It's during the playoffs. If the score is tied after each team has a possession or has possessed the ball, then the next score will win. The team kicking off to start the overtime period scores a safety on the receiving team's initial possession. The team that kicked is the winner. So in the playoffs in overtime, both teams are going to get the ball. Think of that playoff game this last year between buffalo and Kansas City. Kansas City won an overtime, the bills starting quarterback Josh Allen who had an incredible game. One of the best games of the year for any quarterback, never even got the ball in overtime. And I think what this change is going to do is make the end of a playoffs eve in better. They're already incredible. You don't need to do much to make nanopore playoffs better. But now, you're not even going to be able to argue that, oh, he didn't get a fair shot. No, now Josh Allen gets the ball back. With his own opportunity to score and May the best man win. I love it. Again, this only applies to the playoffs, you know, this does not apply to the regular season. We still have the regular old overtime rules during the regular season, where touchdown wins, yada, yada. The league does not want long, drawn out games, but you can justify it during the playoffs because you have too many players complaining. And I like it, I'm excited for this move. It is not a lot more to say about it, but it's going to be an interesting change that will be good for the league. I wish we could get rid of ties entirely and change also the regular season overtime rules, but I part of why they don't is that you just don't want these long drawn out games. You want to end games in overtime during the regular season as quick as possible. But when you're season is on the line and it's like, hey, if we don't get the ball, we go home, I understand the change that I like. So but I'm all for if they ever want to change the regular season play out overtime structure as well. Not against that..

Matthew McConaughey | Career Arc
"Is an episode about the the life in the career and the and the essence of Matthew mcconaughey, who is of course, starring in a new movie harmony, Curran's new movie the beach bum which is out in theaters right now, and we're gonna be talking about that movie quite a bit. But before we do that we're going to do what we always do on the show. This is only the second time we've done it. We're going to analyze different stages of an actor or actress or directors career, and we're gonna talk about the breakthrough moment and the personal pinnacle for each of the three of us. And then we'll talk about the big movie that's out right now. So guys before we get started. I wanna talk. A little bit about just your personal connection to Matthew mcconaughey who has been in our lives for a long time perhaps longer than I even realized when I was looking at this guy's career. Amanda, what is your your general relationship to Makaay? Well, like his career goes in phases. And we're gonna talk a lot about I actually don't know how much we'll talk about the two thousands. But you talk about it, Matthew mccown. Hey starred he was a rom com. Idle in the two thousands, and that's a very interesting time in romantic comedies and say not so interesting workwise, but in terms of career arc very interesting time in Matthew mcconnahey career. And that's kind of how I was introduced to him or how he became a part of my life about that. And you about Matthew mcconaughey, but I was very conversant in those romantic comedies. And then I was a culture blogger to during the Kanazawa. So. It's in terms of watching an actor or a public figure reinvent themselves and have a kind of public narrative that we're all participating in real time. He's a really prime example for me. I can't really think of him without thinking of just this not even transformation, but a return to self that he experienced would you say the time as a flat circle, Amanda. Oh my God. Yeah. I would have to at this point. 'cause you all do so often, rob. What about you? I suspect that your your true relationship with with Matt Mack, which is something no in calls him. But I'm gonna call him that occasionally Amish. Micheli? What's your relationship to McConnell, 'cause I I assume it started before Amandus? Yeah. I mean, it started very simply as like I just want to listen to this person say word rest of my life. I mean, I do think he has this my favorite voice like in Hollywood, and possibly, you know, the larger celebrity sphere. I mean, I'm pretty sure my introduction him like most people my age, our age was dazed and confused and just every word that came out of his mouth just sounded beautiful for lack of any other way to put it I think following his career subsequently. I I wanted to ask you guys like the McConnell San's that term sort of implies like a really deep valley in the middle of his career. Like, Matthew mcconnahey is sort of a guy when I started following and writing about entertainment like following the arc of an actor or a celebrity in the low points in the high points like I was always kind of confused by the McConnell, and ideas, like what was he recovering from like, he doesn't really have. A Geely in that sense. Like, I don't think there's one moment. That's like a terrible moment. And it's like literally ninety seconds ago. I remembered that he was once a rested for playing Bongos today. Kid. That's the thing that happened. Right. What a like that will that wasn't the low point. But like, I was I was he's one of the first actors who I sort of perceived as having this media driven sort of rise and fall arc to him. And I could never quite figure out what caused the fall. I guess I bet you have a lot of thoughts say rob have you seen goes girlfriend pass? And or I haven't walls gold, and or forces of nature, and at you know, the back half from two thousand five to two thousand nine he's in a ladder leading man roles that are tough, and they're not gonna romantic comedies, and those are not. In any way, the essence of McConnell as we have come to understand him. And it's an interesting arc- because he basically twenty years later returns to himself. It's an it's an arc that I know flat, circle, blah, blah, blah. I get it. But it really is the Mikan science. I think more means that he. Finds his essence again as opposed to coming from some valley. It's like a a a new expression or somebody say, the, original expression. Will I think it's also about what we deem to be quality versus an meaningful artistic choices versus things that are pop or frivolous. I think particularly in that period that you're talking about Amanda, you basically two thousand five two thousand four Saharan to for the money things kinda start to go a little south there. And he's just making a lot of stuff that is moderately successful. But just not very good. And you know, when he comes back with the Lincoln lawyer and Bernie in killer Joe, and we'll talk about that period seems to turn the ship, and he starts working with filmmakers that he'd worked within the past or people who seem interesting in on the forefront of something. And so I think the McConnell San's, rob, I guess for lack of a better phrases just meant he started doing good stuff again. And I would argue towards the end of this podcast. We're actually in a phase where with the exception of the movie we're going to be talking about at the end. He's actually made. More bad stuff in the last five years than good stuff, and maybe more bad stuff than he did in that fallow, period. But nevertheless, let's go back to the very beginning. Rob you wanted to talk about about days as as sort of breakthrough. So what is it about David Waterson that that enraptured you? I mean, I feel first of all this is there is no need to overanalyze him that movie like this moment. Like he's in days and confused, really ten minutes. Maybe. You know, like just jump right? Like his delivery of the line. I get older they stay the same age. It's like this perfect mixture of like, casual and formal that's what I love about these high school girls, man. I get older they stay same age. He knows the character knows how good align. It is the actor knows how good align. It is. Like, you take a little step forward. Like in that exact moment. Like, I realized that for the first time that he's wearing like salmon colored pants. Ted Nugent t-shirt. It's just this this beautiful transcendent moment that doesn't need to be belabored. But let's does this guy as a star like just right in that moment. And I the other days that I love rewatching he pulls up alongside another car like a burger joint and the two guys in the other car go off Christ immediately like they can't stand him. But the the driver of the other car a young red headed lady who I believe is Marissa Rabin easy is smitten with him. No, I got my own car. Thank listen to stick the car with now get in with us. But that's all right worry about that later. I will see their. You tell them about the new fiesta tap inning at the moon tower. There's going to be fresh kegs. And it's just I would just I would just follow this man, anywhere. And I watching it again like I feel there's a version of dazed and confused like the studio like focus groups like diluted belabored version of the movie that feels compelled to have an actual plot. And like a moral would make his character not like the villain, but like the cautionary tale at the worst case scenario like you don't wanna end up like this guy, actually like dazed is one of the things that makes it great is like it's a high school movie where at least some of the actors look like they could conceivably be in high school. And so it makes it hard to tell like how much older he's supposed to be than the rest of the people. But I I love the way that like his job is working for the city. Like he says that several times doesn't elaborate at all. But like it's kind of he's he's he's kind of lame like part of what makes Ben Affleck's CARA. Actor lame is that he shouldn't be there anymore. Like, he I think he like flunked a he got held back a few grades or something like he shouldn't be hanging out with these people anymore, and it should theoretically be the same for him. But it's not. But even at the end like when they're on a football field, and he gives the speech about like, it's about living L I V. I N like you can take that as like really profound. You can take that as kind of pathetic. Like, there's a version of the movie where like the plot is like the football player trying to decide whether to sign like the promise not to take drugs or whatever. Like that moment. Could be the football player realizing I don't actually want to end up like this person, you know. And if I agreed not fuck up like even twenty percent of the time, and I won't end up like this person. But like the actual movie can't bear to do that to McConnell. Hey, and like McConnell as performance is too. Good to even make you feel like even a little bit pathetic. Like, it's just it's a very fine line and just uncomplicated -ly beautiful thing. But like when you think about it, it's it's just. It's perfect. He's unquestionably one of our most beautiful statutory, rapists. He's just it's amazing. It's amazing how willing we are to forget that that is literally the point of that character is that he is a predator. And it's like, oh what a charming predator? You know, that is really his power like this is the first significant role that he had and it's it's one of his best roles. It's it's like communicates. A lot about the kind of actor that he is even though he's as you said, rob onscreen for so so little Amanda, what did you think of days? Yeah. I agree with you. It's just kind of an instant stardom. I was on a podcast recently talking about Pretty Woman and the power of that movie and a lot of ways it's just you're watching. Julia Roberts become a star in real time. And it's so rare to see someone in one of their first movies just like before we formed. It's kind of like, okay. You know, you are and sodas the director, and you know, how to be on screen, and like I understand the qualities that you're going. Bring to your other roles like you have just you've got star quality from the gecko. And like he clearly does like dazed and confused. It's kind of his first movie or his first big movie. But also definitely the statement for the rest of his career, or at least the successful parts of his career and people don't often figure it out that early. It's true. It's notable though that it takes a few years for him to find real stardom. You know, even though I think anybody who saw it is inconvenient came out. And it was not a huge box office hit. There's something going on with that guy who is that guy. And then he appears in significant roles, but not necessarily the lead role in angels in the outfield, which I'm sure we all know and love, Bobby Wagner. Our producer baseball fan. I'm certain he's seen it Texas chainsaw massacre of the next generation, which quite bad. He has a small role in boys on the side in which is very charming and his smaller but crucial role in Lone Star, which we've talked about on this podcast before. And then comes a time to kill now. If you're listening to the show, you probably know how much I like the John Grisham adaptations of the nineteen nineties. This was a this was a sub genre that Hollywood thrived on over the years. End of the pelican brief is one of your favorites. Pelican brief the firm is one of my favorites. I'm a big fan of the client. Rob you, and I were having a grand old time recounting some of the ridiculousness of time to kill which I had forgotten and yet still feel entertained in compelled by it's actually quite gruesome story. And if you think Waterson is a sleazebag the stuff that happens in time to kill us awful. It's it's it's essentially a courtroom drama about a man who is on trial play by Samuel Jackson and his lawyer as Matthew mcconaughey, and Matthew mcconaughey is playing essentially modern day Atticus Finch person who is like a he starts the movie out of sort of a wastrel like a slick drunk southern courtroom operator. And by the end of the movie, he transforms into this morally righteous profound. Emotionally resonant figure and this movie is really weird. I cannot believe this movie exists, and so intense, and so upsetting and also features a million famous people, Sandra Bullock is essentially McConnell as right hand woman, who's helping him with the case who understands the law significantly better than mccown as character does Samuel Jackson of courses on trial. He plays Billy Ray Cobb. Kevin Spacey is the DA who comes in from out of town and his quite evil for into Frick. Her plays. Matthew kinda his secretary Oliver Platt places legal partner, Donald Sutherland, I believe plays. His father has dropped. It's like it's not as father. But like the lawyer who gave him his start and is now a drunk sort of wasted. Right. His. Protege. His father figure who has his name is is Lucien Wilbanks sheriff some perfect Girish esque southern writing the reason that I chose this movie is his breakthrough is because it's the the first time that McConnell, hey, is in the center of the frame, the whole time the movie lives and dies by him. And because of its preposterousness, I think almost any other actor wouldn't have been able to pull it off. And of course, there's a very very famous speech at the end of this movie that we're gonna listen to right now. I wanna tell you story. Close your eyes. Tell you the story. I want you. Listen to me what you listen to yourselves. Go
