Andrew Luck's Retirement Highlights the NFL's Growing Problem

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

"Of sports where Andrew luck has announced his retirement Joan I thought we were going to be talking about college football tonight is Florida holds on to beat Miami twenty four to twenty in weeks zero of college football camping world stadium in Orlando we had our many D. as turnover chain topics ready to go and Angela decides to retire one of the most shocking sports stories that I could ever remember Jalen it's got to be right up there I remember the night Barry Sanders retired and that was really shocking I remember being in school as a kid when Magic Johnson announced that he had HIV that's got to be I mean as far as just flooring you with news because it also had to do with magic self people always say Jim brown's retirement a year after going to a championship game and and be in really good to you know go hang out with rock hell well should make a bunch action movies is one of the craziest retirement stories ever but did this this one will crack that all time crazy list I'm with you on Magic Johnson and H. I. V. that rocked everybody's world and then the other one that comes to mind is Michael Jordan retiring after winning championships and then he suddenly starts playing baseball with the Birmingham barons so when those stories though have some other impacts you know with Michael Jordan you can always get into the speculation as to why he was really gone from the NBA and played baseball for a little bit of time you bring up Barry Sanders that seems to be a franchise issue with the Detroit Lions when it comes to putting a good team around star players and money Calvin Johnson actually has a similar situation on going right now with the lines this one to me is just sad it's sad it's disappointing in the sense that Andrew luck had so much going for him coming into the NFL he was gonna be ushering in the next wave of quarterbacks that we were gonna be talking about the same regard as Tom Brady and Peyton manning and as we've mentioned couple times already Peyton manning's actually gonna out last Andrew luck and that's where we are tonight yeah it's yeah we we use the word disappointing earlier when we were looking for the one word to sum up his career because neither one of us felt like a botched was appropriate despite the note a Superbowl absolutely not yeah one of the most ballyhooed quarterbacks of all time yeah he is a four time pro bowler he is he a hall of Famer I mean that that that is a double the rate over the next couple so how about slow down the hall of fame come on how about how about that give me one give me one minute Joe is Andrew luck a hall of Famer to give you one second no come on that is the one of the best quarterbacks of his era yes we barely saw what he was four time Pro Bowl well I backstabber I mean is there like a rookie wing of the hall of fame that we could put it right now that's a silly conversation in that I've seen it kind of pop up on social media but I do think that these silly conversation right now what's not so the conversation is what do the colts do going forward I think we're gonna be finding out more about Andrew luck situation in the next coming days and Adam Schefter broke the news is most definitely going to fill in some of these gaps whether they know how long this conversation going on but you do have the immediate impact of football not just for the call from cell to the division and what the AFC playoffs

"Receiver ranking among available adversities he ahead or behind. Calvin johnson. He is behind Calvin Johnson k more Herman Moore. He is he has behind him in more. Maxine max McGee. He is. He is the head of max McGee. He's you got a touchdown in the Super Bowl. Come on, man. Anybody else? Notably. These head of not specifically. I will just say this Corey davises had three games this year where he scored more than twenty fantasy points. He's had seven games in which he's had single a single digit output. Like there is no confidence in me a championship week. And there's I would rather take a flyer on two guys. And I know this is crazy two guys that have been hot the last two weeks in either Robbie Anderson or Robert Foster, then thrown out Corey Davis because you just have no idea what you're gonna get with that guy Daniel fair. Listen, I think. Appreciate about your perspective. And not that you don't have a lot of the insight. The analysis that we usually the podcast is you do a great job of speaking. I think from I don't want to say just like fan speaking, the fan voice, but people that are are not spending hours toiling over data and been projections and match ups, but just like seeing what's happening week to week. And then reacting to them as such right? Like, no. But you know, what? I mean, like, you know, heart. Yeah. Hard to note saying though, I appreciate that. Right. Like that is like you are asking the question or anything a lot of people are asking. So I understand it. I think again, I go back to the target chair record Damon that being said and like not attainable match. I don't think this. I would I would say it is that Josh Norman Chateau, you think. Okay. Yeah. Shadowing quite a bit. Now Davis has been actually a little better as of late wide receiver twenty six or better four of his past seven. But as we talked about almost every week whenever he is a very tough shadow situation. He has struggled this season. And the titans offense. It's he's just not in a situation for big upside to be honest. I mean they've zero passing touchdowns their past two games. The Redskins allowed zero passing touchdowns last week. I mean, it was Cody Kessler, nonetheless and Tennessee is has not exceeded two passing touchdowns in a single game this season, by the way, you mentioned his target share. It's trending the wrong way. Eight point four per game from weeks one to ten four point eight per game the past five cash too busy scoring the football. They're leaning on the run right now. It's just not a good situation. If you haven't seen it. There was a great segment last night. Our other last night or was voiced by s VP assume it ran at his show that laid out all of the different playoff. Scenarios that could take place. There's something like sixteen thousand different scenarios in the AFC still available and part of it was the focus on the titans. And like, I think the titans actually are a pretty favorable spot. If they win their final to gasworks other things could be shut out with two straight wins. But like there are eight teams that are still alive for a top two seed in the AFC, not even look a playoffs. But like a top you see that thing that game the game of the week in week seventeen probably going to be titans colts, and that's gonna be a playoff game or the last year, the NFL ditched the flex remember that lashing the NFL said no eight thirty game that will be a fun game of Holt in the playoff game essentially intentionally a playoff game in week seventeen dying for one of our favorite segments of the week. Somehow somehow, it's just more fun that way, you know. It's like it's like analog. It's organic. Beginning exactly actually beat the authentic sound. But if it's you know, if you want to feel home-cooked sure, you listen to your MP threes on your Zunes to.

The Dolphins' Hook and Lateral: Is it the future of football?

"Dolphins. Six ninety nine touchdown was the longest touchdown with no time left to win a game in the Super Bowl era. That's good. Okay. Is the hook and lateral. The future of football Robert Mays show twice today. Man, more teams should do it. It won one game and had the opportunity to win another. But the Steelers when forget your Chris Boswell compensate went full Steelers. Yeah. I kind of think that one of the things I've talked about when when people have asked you what the next step in football is I actually think it's kind of it's not hooking laterals. It's sort of multiple people having the ball in the backfield. And then one of them throwing almost sort of like what the saints are doing a little bit with three quarterbacks. I if you have a crappy quarterback, it's better to have three of them and just have a little Mr. action there. Princeton does that with on those option plays, and they'll actually hand it to the guy that's the option runner, and he's also a quarterback's throw it, right? But apparently when I tweeted about the hook 'em out bit. Some people say the guy coach calorie the guy who doesn't punt who's famous for not punting. His thing is hook him are actually the next step in football. And actually, I had a role a thing as far as you're going to say, it's the same thing. Yeah. I've never I've never used that phrase hook and lateral before the Wikipedia says hook and lateral sometimes referred to as hook and ladder. But it's called hook and lateral. The Wikipedia I've never said hook and lateral in my life. It's a regional thing. It's like pop verse coke there you go. I just said, you you say, and you firmly believe that was the that was the term. I was like, okay. Well. I wasn't going to come in on shore. Good for you, buddy. I do any research. I appreciate that. I've always had hooking ladder. Maybe that's just the varsity blues influencing the way, I talk about football. Well, it's all. It was it was nuts. I mean, the play was insane. It was absolutely crazy. I even watch in real time. It was too hard to process. I mean, you have gronkowski back there. I guess to prevent a hill. Mary. And then the last thing you want with the guy who can't move that. Well, being your last line of defense happens. Right. So rob gronkowski is not the guy who went back there. That's so he's not Earl Thomas, I think we learned that today or. Or like Julio's defended those plays pretty pretty well in the past. Knocking those Johnson Calvin John yet. Yeah. Calvin Johnson has been a great great last play guy. But they knew they knew it was going to be a hook out excuse me, hook him out. All they said that the I mean you had to it would've been a seventy seventy yards in the air is capable for half the quarterback. Just not Ryan tannehill. Heff the quarterbacks might be strong. But yeah, I mean, I bet I bet a lot of them could throw seventy yards in the air.

Well, you know, I wanted to give it space. So but light trinket we ever see when that dude on the PGA tour walks up to the gate and just hits it and swims away. Yeah. That's what I assume. All alligators. If you just like slap their tails, they run away from. Yes. That's absolutely true. Okay. So I have a couple of fund stats for you. I fun stat Calvin Johnson or sorry. I've ruined that stat eight straight one hundred yard games. Only two receivers in the in the in the can I guess they are. Yes. Feelin taliban. John's okay. Yeah. You gotta got it. Wow. Okay. Funds that the chiefs are eight no unquote, flips it, wow. Yes. That's shit. That's a really fun. Yes. That's crazy. Right. Andy Reid noses quarters. No. That's that's harder than going eight knowing the NFL. That's really that's not. How did you? Do. You think they do the same one every time or have they switched? I don't know. We think they obviously do tails doesn't fail. We gotta take deep on that. All right. Here's my last stat. This one is not fun. It said out of two hundred nineteen coaches with minimum of forty games coached Hugh Jackson ranks two hundred eighteenth all time in winning percentage. Okay. The only one who is worse. Former eagles head coach, Bert bell. He's last, but he couldn't be fired because he was also the owner. That's how bad you Jackson is as a coach the only coach who's ever been worse than him. Minimum forty games was the owners. Well, that's that's. Pretty incredible. So in other words, Hugh Jackson, definitely has some sort of dirt on the owners. Yes, you buy just matching huge Jackson's probably just in the FBI, and he just has access to Jimmy Hasham's. File. I was gonna say is can you have dirt on Jimmy has when all his out in the public. Well, there's probably some other stuff. True. If you if you dig deep enough on I mean, God damn good for Hugh. That's wild. This is why I want Hugh around because like rolled we talk about a few Jackson wasn't so head-scratching Lee dumb every week. It's incredible. I mean, it's it's it's unreal. That he's gotten to forty games because that's that is basically all the really shitty coaches get fired before they can get to forty games. Yeah. And Hugh, so big cat. You bring up a good point. He's not that bad. Then the worst coaches of all time don't have that very true true under four. Yes. There are probably worse. Well, I mean, you wanna talk about coaches with a lot of losses who's tied for the lead in that. Jeff Fisher, great coach coach. So sometimes super yes. So sometimes if you're really shitty for long enough. That's actually. Proof that you're good. Yes. Fact. I mean, we've been on the air for three years. Yeah. We're we're we are percentage sauces quarter via quarter quarter of that's right. We debuted on Lita. So do we do you want to do another done chain or James swinson gonna get it? I mean, I think I was going to do either Detroit or the Broncos. I don't think the choice theory. Well, I was going to pass the done chain from Seattle to Detroit. Can we knew that interests you if you get beaten at home by somebody with a dungeon, you get infected? I think I go Broncos though out of if if you had to ask yourself right now, Detroit or the Broncos which team can randomly get on the easier which team can randomly get into the playoffs. I would say it's probably the lions I would agree with you. I'd agree with you. I mean, EV they lost the swag factor in Detroit or in Denver Matt suffer with an all time. Terrible interest talk about another bad beat. Yeah. For the over him and Kirsch, and then they ran bad days for those the punter ran a fucking ran out of the end zone for twelve yards for I down. So. So safety. He was gonna take official Broncos. Yeah. Let's give it to the Broncos. All horseface. John elway. Okay. Doesn't have a stable quarterback situation. Yeah. And the chiefs swag. Yeah. The chiefs keep rolling do. They get rid of them. Yeah. Yeah. They did. Yes. So by your man. Yeah..

"The first time you saw him he hit a sharpie and his uniform he held a press conference in philadelphia doing sit ups in his driveway the person calvin johnson was in college and entering the nfl was the person calvin johnson was retiring the person jerry rice was his rookie year is who jerry rice was his last year teo was holding press conferences in his driveway doing sit ups hiding sharpies going to the star in dallas so the hall of famous shocked that this is who he is when the nfl draft takes place every year and i love the draft i've been obsessed by it forever the first two things i look at for a player our body and head let me explain that sam darnold body durable josh rosen body less durable andrew luck big thick teddy bridgewater got hurt and practice spindly so the first thing i look at your stats what your body looked like is it sustainable nfl body to's got that then i look at your head ocho cinco i covered him in college was immature he entered the league immature when he played he was immature and when he left he was immature talented had the body didn't have the head i'm always i marvel at people that looked at johnny mans ellen thought yeah he didn't have the body and he didn't have the head he was tiny small shoulders little tiny waist and he was immature like what general manager oh my bad cleveland looked at him and thought this is gonna work it's why i criticize baker mayfield he'd never worldclass body and he's shown immaturity that's nothing everyone picking the draft terrell owens is exactly what he told us he was as a player at exactly what he is as a member of the hall of fame joy with news heard on the news this is the headline news i mean think about this joy wendell ask you ever gone to a high school reunion yes here's something that's never been set at a high school reunion god i can't believe the dumbest jock in our class became a nuclear physicist like that's not what happens it's like the dumb jocks still the dumb jock he lost his hair and he's kinda got a belly and he may be kind of funny and self deprecating but he's not a nuclear physicist he was a dumb jock at seventeen in these thirty nine in these kind of a former dumb jock i don't know if you said this last week the week before but i mean what causes this appointment in anger is expectations so if you know who somebody is you create these unrealistic expectations behavior going to be disappointed now someone can surprise you people do change in volve you've seen cases where people come into the league immature and then grow out of it what redeem themselves but you didn't have those expectations of them so it's a pleasant surprise stop putting unrealistic expectations on people lakers fans speaking of realistic expectations you would expect lakers fans very excited that the greatest player in the world has decided to grace los angeles with his presence take on the several years of losing and adequate basketball but not everyone is happy about it like lakers fans sear or some pretty unbelievable takes the new york times spoke to have a handful of fans at the nba summer league here's some quotes i don't even know where to start he such a diva sometimes a diva in los angeles are you joking don't get me wrong he's good maybe i'll feel differently once he wins the championship for the lakers oh okay i'm not a fan of lebron quote he was a whiny baby quote i never liked him i always thought he seemed really cocky now i'm going to guess that most of these fans are koby vans the la times yesterday one of their columnists not a sports columnist and other columnist was out there saying you know it makes me want to be more of a clipper fan time out time out the world's greatest basketball player joins the nba's biggest brand and it and it makes you wanna be a clipper fan i i don't get it so ungrateful it it it really it really is it's terrible like the there's really no words for other than it's just koby fans who are who are stuck in this this era basketball it doesn't even exist anymore but you're not really a lakers fan you're kobe fan so just admit that because the greatest player in the.

NFL to change controversial catch rule

"I know it's fairly relation to me not nah not not me little different mike's there sorry a class of rule changes coming up let's get right to it because i have we're gonna have some fun with this over the next few days here's how here's how this works what you need to know this hour begins right new york city where the nfl league office is going to have to come up with some sort of an adjustment and catch well we know there's momentum's building in that direction but here's what you have to keep in mind the competition committee can talk all they want about changing the catch role next week in orlando the owners will decide whether and to what extent they want to change it and they're the ones who make the rules literally and figuratively it's up to them so now we see the competition committee several weeks after meeting in indianapolis talking about getting rid of elements of the rule like surviving the ground which would have made the dez bryant catch a catch and other catches catches because join right going to the ground no longer matters and here's why this has always been an issue whether it's jesse james last year calvin johnson dez bryant here's why the nfl doesn't allow this going to the ground and completed catch dean blandino explained this before they're concerned about a situation where a guy running free down the middle of the field catches the ball is stumbling to the ground hits the ground loses the ball and then it's a fumble alive ball in the middle of the field and for some reason they don't want that.

Should the NFL adopt the targeting rule?

"You're right is a fan of sicom on visit please do we have to look at this there's always going to be a human element there's always going to be a mistake right you can't be perfect and the fact is because of this slow mohan hd and now you can see everything did the ball move a little did it not is that finger underneath the football it's gone to the point of the absurd and trying to figure things out that said though the committee was not unanimous in terms of the jesse james catch that was the catch in the end zone for a touchdown with the steelers and patriots now i'll tell you this though when i saw that play the jesse james one i knew amelie they were gonna call it a catch based on the rules but now that they apparently are changing the rules and more defining what a catches ronnie do you think that should be a cash as the telphone that's that's it's helpful phnom i thought it was incomplete i thought i thought it was unclear what had happened i just i still think that one was incomplete there's bryant was definitely a catch to calvin johnson was definitely catch uh but that one at the i thought that was in complete what about targeting i think that's another one that they should possibly look it i think 100 percent they sugar targeting i mean to me that the thomas davis play the carolina panthers linebacker uh i think that would clearly have been a targeting play i think targeting something that if you want to about protecting players that the nfl talks about so often targetting is something why not it works in the college ranks does it need to be refined yes but i think targeting very dangerous and i think in fact if you're going to penalize a player for targeting you need to do it in the nfl because the fact is you see it a you know you see it enough where it's dangerous don't you think about the players health safety that you have to give some sort of a message that we are going gonna crack down hard on this and i think the targeting ruling college does cracked that hard on it and i think the nfl should adopt a rally should they adopted wadia of course they should because this think about in to me you.

"I think calvin johnson i think there's rant was definitely a kitsch i thought his arm stayed under the ball even when he hit the ground and it popped up this you're not assured in shorted short it because in looks like johnson could be an slick like i can see why the nfl could be played it off like he's just throwing it down and celebrating or maybe he needed to their he because he was off ballots he's coming down look if your hand is when the ball like that you can easily foul so he this is a great example just that there will always be controversy and argue arguments and i want fans no this is not going to be some panacea there's not going to be some curul they said in these quotes seventeen thousand passing plays yesterday when we were discussing the rule it was fewer than ten that would be affected by the adjustment but there's some of the famous players from leicester the jesse james play potentially nato to agree on an act mira said they he's not sure everybody agreed there are some controversy there so what i would like i would like to things one i would like this get rid of the going to the ground component which it seems like they're moving towards meaning if you catch the ball and have nonfootball definition of possession you're controlling the ball even if once you hit the ground you lose control for a moment that that is allowed to be a catch but most importantly i would like the nfl to go back to this standard which is to call on the field is gospel barring more overwhelming evidence obvious evidence that can be seen quickly and that sort of what is supposed to be biased that's what it is supposed to be right so if that's already when it's supposed to me and look at the confusion they have i i agree with you your 100 percent right i don't know how you implement i also nick lemme ask because you mitch go into the ground usually they've had to choose to step rule right are you saying because i think of football move does it necessarily have.
