Now the rich Eisen show here on a Wednesday live from the. At studios if you are hearing something different in my voice today if you are sensing something maybe a little but Out of the ordinary in my voice. Today if you're listening Folks on television can see. I'm wearing a Cardigan. decided to go with a button up Cardigan. Today it was good. I appreciate it You Know I. I think it's stylish. It's a choice. It literally is a choice and like you know what I'm GonNa take can do it. It's kind of like a holiday thing I don't have the there's no you'll log burning. You know I just decided. I'm going Cardigan carding day. Be Bald. Thank you sir. So what you know. We're in that sort of waiting for the NFL weekend. Thing saying there's no Thursday night football coming up tomorrow college basketball's kind of tapping out a little bit. The most wonderful time of the year begins Friday. The bowl season begins Friday. Audet when two bowls that are absurdly named and We got that last night. Lakers lost Lakers lost. I throw yes first road loss near so is that is that a revenge game against Frank Vogel. Is that what that is. I don't know what that is. Maybe that's why we dialup Chris Mannix later today because he was news or it's the Mannix Jinx. He wrote this terrific piece About the Lakers Being better than anybody could have thought like the we knew there were good. We don't know if they could be great. What did we miss that He put that out there in sports illustrated and then they lose. Maybe it's the Mannix Jinx I'm also also genuinely greatly concerned about the health of David Stern. I want to get an update on that. So that's why Mannix GonNa join us an hour number. Three of the show an hour to he has not made a An appearance on a nationally syndicated or nationally televised or broadcast program since being let go by the Carolina Panthers Head Coach of the Carolina Panthers for nine years. He made the coach of the year. Podium twice he took the Panthers Anthony to a super bowl. John Fox did that once. It was the first super bowl. NFL network ever covered. And then and then Ron Rivera did it with Cam Newton and So Ron's GONNA join us in the middle of this hour. I'm wondering how surprised he was by the firing. I will kind of ask him questions that he just flat out would wouldn't answer or use the the coaches way out when I was chatting with him prior to the first London game I called this year with the NFL. Game Day morning crew was panthers in Bucks and Kyle Allen in that game won his fourth consecutive started the year remember to do then they beat the bucks to go to foreign into the eventually made it to five and three and then lost four in a row including by the way to road games in which they they were in it to the very end in the snow and lambofield where Christian McCaffrey wound up a half a yard shy of putting the ball in the end zone and a chance to win that game. And then if you remember in New Orleans slide. Their field goal kicker missed a field goal to go up. Drew brees got the ball back and men. He got their field goal and that was the end of that game to Amazingly Competitive Rhode contests wrapped around two home losses to the Falcons and the Washington. The redskins that did Ron Rivera or appeared to so I want to ask him. Is Carl Allen going to be the starting quarterback next year. Is he a viable starting quarterback choice for the Panthers in two thousand twenty. And what about Cam. What what were the plans for Cam? So now that he's through the other side we'll see how much he can tell us or is willing to and then ask him as he's been contacted already when we're swimming. He wants to coach again. That's an hour number. Two I steps can be Charles Woodson. He was Charles. Woodson's weekend heisman. Trophy showed up then. I'm assuming coming air. Mark Davis across the country overnight to light the light. The torch sounds like final home home. Game for the raiders. Late night in New York and then up the hopped jet to Oakland where again he lit the torch in the final Oakland Raiders home game and he covered it for nfl the grind which is on tonight on epochs at ninth time and it was all about this game following Charles around that day as well as also 'cause I assume he was at the heisman wasn't the heisman or didn't go I don't know we'll ask him. I thought I saw on there because he sat down with Jon Gruden to which leads me to believe he. He had to have been with the team before the game. I don't think John Sitting Down Game Day last Charles about it. Then ask him who voted for for the heisman. I'm wondering if you e I wonder if he went chase young because I'm sure he appreciates a a defensive player. Winning the Heisman Trophy Ohio though he's from so and then he He was there and and the other person that the grind cameras follow around the NFL films crew was Brent Musburger man and then the game happened holy crap. I still can't believe they lost that one now. You know just as a a way to go out that I'm sure Al Davis was screaming from his front row seat Derek Derek Carr sliding ruled out of bounds. He was clearly inbounds clock stops as opposed to running would meant you have had less less time with the game have been over. She wouldn't have been able to get that touchdown at the end of the game. That's the raiders. Go out the door. What a terrible taste in the mouth that always the raiders will cleanse their pallet with a beautiful palace down from Caesar's and and The question is what about the Raider fans and Charles Live. Aw fresh perspective on on all of that also the pro bowl teams got Announced yesterday okay on NFL network. And it's not a congratulations. But you gotta you gotTa feel for. I guess the dolphins and giants who put Zeros in the twenty twenty Probo. There's two zeroes in the two thousand twenty first time since the arts that every pro two zero Senate or twenty ten. I guess no pro bowlers for the dolphins and the giants none. Hey we we looked every voter we looked we we. We looked everywhere we proudly. NFL doesn't have that rule like major league. Baseball has where every team has to have one. You know what. Why do you say that? And you can't stand participation trophies in youth sports. That's the same thing it's just like everyone the proposals and aren't orange wedges nor should by the way all star game appearance like if somebody's better on another team they should go but football football is the only sport we do the All Star game at the end. I'll say this and what are we doing really. I'm very as you know as you know. My my son made made the All Star Team for a YSL locally here. We're very excited about it. He just played his first weekend tournament. I'm GONNA go there. On in this micro tell obviously everything about my life life here. As everybody saw yesterday he played four games my son over the weekend one two loss to now I think they ran out of steam. They're like young kids they they never played two games on the same day let alone four and two days right. They lost the next two but based on the way that all worked out in their your age group they won their age group. Okay and their school but they're gonNA get medals and I'm wondering their records five hundred first place. I guess does that mean everybody else went one in three on the weekend or the Dallas Cowboys of a S. O. Philadelphia Eagles. I know you don't want the eagles to eat a piece and Delta. I don't WanNa do that. Hey Listen Oh you you got swept Sunday. You lost both games Sunday but guess what everybody else wanted three. Here's a metal back door. I guess you gotTa teach you can back door your back door. Anything man. Next week will be a beast quake in the next tournament. Never know all but yeah it's not an orange wedge. They looked everywhere. They looked everywhere in the giants roster and the dolphins roster. But at least you know for dolphins can say we got rid of all of ours just because we we stripped it down to the studs here. We're rebuilding our home. Giants have at least a sense of trion this year. Going in the fact that Saquon Reichler. Nobody thought that though I heading into the year saquon Barkley man isn't a pro bowler. How the hell does that wind up happening? Man You got. I know he got hurt but almost let's try hard on the flipside. Let's be more positive. Let's look half full. Let's do the twenty nineteen nineteen ravens. Joined the OH seven Dallas cowboys. How about that? The Oh seven Dallas cowboys. We're not talking about the the we're not talking about the ninety four ninety five or the ninety two and ninety three dollars cowboys the Oh seven Dallas cowboys and the seventy three dolphins as the only teams have at least twelve players selected to the pro bowl in the Super Bowl era cowboys thirteen and three year with Romo right now. Twelve players from the Ravens are in the pro bowl twelve of them. And you're starting running backs man. You're start congratulations nick job. He's the starting running back for the AFC. Explain to me how Aaron and Jones doesn't make the pro bowl. Let's take a look. Are we really going down. Pro Bowl snubs laying. There were a few that were kinda glaring. Man I mean in order guy was seventeen. touchdowns isn't considered one of the four best backs and Zeke made it that. That's not I mean that's probably just players saying your stats are off. But we know you're one of the best. Yeah that's a rough one. That is a rough one that is so lamar. You're starting quarterback Keenan Allen and De'andre Hopkins. You're starting wide receivers for your. AFC Jillian doesn't make the pro bowl but dude. His his numbers didn't support that he is one of three players in the national football league this year with ninety catches thousand hard. My bad look at you. Know in your stuff part of the top of your head you recording it. Is that what you were doing at practice. Getting very good at least the jets have Jamal Adams. They they tried their best to have no pro bowlers. They tried their best to put that on the Dallas. Roster Dallas with Zeke Travis. Frederick Zack Martin. tyran Smith is the only pro bowlers for the Dallas Cowboys and in terms of teams. That have just won. The bills should be so. Oh pissed. Tra- Davis White has. That's the only bills pro bowler only one. What a lack of total respect back for team at that could wind up with twelve wins but the bills are a team of a bunch of guys? They don't have a lot of sexy names. Not a lot of guys household name as oh can I name some other teams that have only one pro Bowler Cincinnati Gino Atkins Denver von Miller Detroit. Detroit Darius Slay Jacksonville Callejas Campbell. The jets Jamal Adams. Let's let's just let's just have fun here. Yeah I I guess I guess if you add it up and the amount of wins for all the one win one pro bowl teams. You might might get enough to surpass the bills ten the jets have five. I mean come on the other teams that have just one pro bowl or have a lot in common. They have stunk on ice more often than not this year. So the pro bowl should just be no you know all the all the best as players on what a half a dozen doesn't teams or so no. I'm not saying that it gets spread love around a little bit. Green Bay's only to Bahktiar Ian Rogers. I saw someone when making the case yesterday that Roger shouldn't even been a pro bowl. It's that's what the conversations are all about my. Yeah our poll questions. A ton of fun but We'll get to that after Charles Woodson and Charles Woodson Ron. Rivera Chris Mannix in you got my four downs as well all right. Eight four four zero. Four rich is the number to dial on. I have a great conversation with a whole bunch of people if you're on hold on hold on. I'm definitely going to get to your calls this very hour but I need to take a break and take the recall of Charles Woodson when we come back on the rich Eisen show.

Fires the Hail Mary high up into the air right side of the end zone. Jump Ball up in the air. Incomplete the Final Act. The raiders have lost to the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Oakland Alameda. Coliseum and the Oakland raiders are no more I I mean that was Brent Musburger with the call what an absolute stunning turn of events. It was sixteen six. They lost that football. Game and again Brent Musburger was followed around by NFL films cameras for NFL Grind Tonight on epochs and a man who was the correspondent For this program of several times arms always I love it and every single time has been kind enough to call another show help promote it and talk about it. who was at that game? We just showed the television audience. Him Lighting the torch last guy to do it there at the Oakland Coliseum. Is My man thrilled. A call a good friend one of the all time greats in the history of the sport Charles Woodson. How are you Charles do well oh now are you? What was that like? On Sunday man man it was a you know a lot of fun for you. Know somebody who you know played in that stadium you know water the silver and black for eleven seasons You know it was a pretty special occasion for myself have to be able to come back and like the torch you know it was. It was just unbelievable man. You should throw the parking lot before the game. The amount of fans that what they're early packed. And then you know ready. You know the girl support their team and it was a pretty pretty Special moment and then the end of the game did the air just absolutely exit. The building like that Charles. Yeah man you know. I think you know if you watch the game. We know the raiders had it pretty much in control you know for most of the game and then all of a sudden you know like you just stated you know kind of all air. Let out at at the Stadium I think everybody was anticipating you know. Having that moment you know winning the last game and the cavs Siham and All of a sudden seems like you know last couple of minutes of the game and you know they go down and score and you know it was just man you know. I think that was that was rough for for you. Know all the fans in that stadium and I don't think they knew how to react after you know the final score. Well it sounded like there were some boos for Derek Carr to be honest with you Charles. That will talk about awkward. And and something that for for a guy who's given his heart and his soul and and maybe not all the time stellar play but It was awkward. There was no other way to put it for that certainly in Very disappointed you know that that happened disappointed for anybody who would have been born for their car. You know he's got it goes out there man and he puts it all out online with you like his play. I don't like play. It doesn't matter. He goes out there and play hard And I I saw clips him after the game you know shaking hands walking walking around and give him his. Thanks and you know I. I don't think that was a necessary for anyone to do if they were directing it directing it at I thought he made a big play in the game at the end of the game that was you know he ended up. Getting was basically penalized for you. know the play that he made and getting down out of balance and You know giving his team a chance to to win that game and and all of a sudden you know you go from the first down and probably a little twenty two to backed up so Yeah you know. I'm not not too pleased about the way that happened 'cause I know that kid man. He's he's a good kid and certainly don't deserve that. I know you spoke with him as part of NFL to grind. That's tonight How'd you find Gruden? I mean. Obviously he's your first coach in the NFL And you've known him a long time. How how did you find him? what would you. How would you term him when when you chat with with him after a team that won six and four and had so much in front of them and is now Six and eight Charles. Yeah I think he was he was he. was you know he had a lot of high hopes for the team. You know they. They were playing well and You know to to away games. You know old jets and then and then Kansas City in seems seems like things kind of unraveled. A little bit I know they thought this. Would this season you know Again had high host but I know that they knew it would be a tough season but things were looking pretty bright you know in those couple of weeks and then this last game You know I know he was It was important for him to go out and put a so good showing on that last game you know and to get to win for the fans I know he was. You know certainly doing everything. He couldn't his power to get that win But I do think you know for for everybody. You know it's been it's been a long season you know you you find yourself now having lost You know three three straight and You know nobody can believe right now that it's this point after things looking so good Charles. What's in here on the rich? Eisen show I'm going to put right in your in your breadbasket here. Charles I give you Derek Carr or I give you the field of any other quarterback in a in on the planet right now the starter for the twenty twenty Las Vegas Writers Week One is going to be who I think. It'll be their car. I don't see the move. Yeah I don't think I don't see them Moving from Derek Carr at this point. I mean Ah Yeah I don't I don't see that I don't see that scenario. Why why why not I could I could see I could see the team You know get into another quarterback maybe do the draft or whatnot. You know maybe to come in and bring some competition but Derek Carr is a good quarterback. I mean I I don't I don't see how anybody would see otherwise and I don't see how you know at this point. You know you come to anybody would come to the conclusion you know. There wouldn't be the quarterback while the reason the reason why I ask though okay is because You know Gruden I mean He. He's gone and called the game right. He's in the booth and and Brad Johnson won a super bowl with them and other than that you know in. This may be unfair. Yeah to say but the sense you get said. GRUDEN is constantly looking for quarterbacks other than them who he actually likes and appreciates. I'm wondering what you could fill me in on his relationship or his thoughts on. Derek Carr Charles. What do you think everybody knows? Gruden is his degree and grinder. I mean he's He's tough on quarterbacks and He was thoroughly that way. We're risk Gannon when I was there was always instances him in risk standing Go it for the rich Gannon. was you know tough quarterback a good quarterback and he would give it as good as he got it Like Derek said again. And is that right. He gave it back to Gruden. There's no no doubt you know there there would be times when he would be fed up with it and You know he would have to come back but I mean that's the way their relationship was but I think he got the best out of rich Gannon you know because their relationship was the way it was and and I'm sure again in appreciated. They did because he had he had his best years. You know they're in Oakland and I believe the same thing could be. We could say the same thing could happen today. A car and I think if you give them too soon and I don't think you'll be able to get the best out of them and when I look at the when I look at the team and as far more than their on field you know. There's a lot of things go into a team you know. It's not just one player. Who who has you know in a position where you're not winning games you know Again they were up sixteen to the three In a lot of that was because of what you know their car was out there doing and so gave up a long drive late in the game. Defensively and So everybody's to blame you know for anything that doesn't go well on a team and I know Derek Carr can play the game of football so again I mean I I stand behind the kids play and I think you've been you've done very very well for the Raiders Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show Before we move onto onto college football where you are spending your first years analyst with Fox sports The Best Team you've seen so far whether in person or watching on TV in In two two thousand in one thousand nine in the NFL would be which one. That's one I think we're in person. Of course you know the best team I saw was us. You know up in Ann. Arbor our stadium in in watching Our team go against their rival. You know I watched that game and You Know Western nice to in particular. You know their running game any often so blind you know I think they you know they far outweighed our defensive line and Kinda push those those guys route throughout the game and made things easy you know for for the running back who had a field day And then Justin feels. I thought quarterback wise man. I thought Oh season-long He was a steady as any quarterback in the gang. And I just have you know to me. I have one visual of him. And that's him going going into the tent. And you know had knee you know evaluated and then he comes out of the tent and the very next play those touchdown you know Eh. You know. That's the kind of thing when you play this game. You know how tough it is how hard it is. Go out there and play through injury. You know to to see a kid do that That was pretty special now when you were by the way first of all great way to talk about the buckeyes without saying their name. I really appreciate that. I picked up on that where you were you sitting sitting next to urban watching that game. Was that happening where you with him. Yeah yeah so well for a part of absolutely especially especially late in the game As we're getting ready to do our post game I was sitting next to him in the you know what what what do you say to a got. Who who to a guy who was seven zero against you and then all of a sudden you're sitting next to him and they're going for eight? No your teams out there getting spank you know that that's a that's visit uncomfortable position to be. Well Charles. I broadcast the draft with Urban Meyer In Chicago a few years ago on night to win Ohio Oh state set the record for most draft choices in the first three rounds of NFL draft and Michigan yet to have a single player drafted and every single time. I looked I looked down. I looked down asset He gave me a smile. I don't know if it was out of Sheer pity is the only word for He gave me his numbers. That hail come on your show anytime and and he did. He actually did so. He's a man of his word. That was not fun. That was awful and So I feel Charles but you knew that but you new that yeah no doubt so what I guess then the doors open here. What what what can be done to get Michigan back on this footing that we know that you know that you that you had them on in the mid to late ninety s but what what can be done as signing days beginning into role in a little bit today Charles Well for me I think Not just in particular her as I looked at last football game that we played out there at home You know the first half of that game you know for one. We couldn't stop the run all day. which okay you know that? That happens that time but when you're playing a team and they're able to run the ball that like the way. A The buckeyes were run the ball. You have to make them go too long way so they can run the ball you let them get five here maybe three there but you they can go to long way what we continue to do in that game. Whenever we're planning those guys we continue to give up big place and then where we have opportunity does make plays we kinda squander mouth and you know just going through the game I remember day? They scored and they scored. Thanks go into I we. We scored the first touchdown. We scored a touchdown get six or seven. We missed extra point And then and then we go to a you know and couldn't get out to feed on third down to we finally got off the field. On third down we come in as fourth and five we jumped offsides on punt the ball back and then the very next play a fifty yard. Pass down the field I think it went down to the to the three yard arlon rented in. They ran it in. Then we have a touchdown at the end of the half. We dropped dropped to pass Once we get to the ground so we've had opportunity after opportunity and then and then rich. We're we're on the ground we're on time people shoe and we get an unsportsmanlike conduct. Like against the it gets a great team. You cannot make mistakes and you'd have to capitalize on all of your your your opportunities and so for for me. I think that's the first thing for our team. Is that big moments they have to. They have to make the play in the cannot make mistakes. I'm not I'm not. Ah for anyone saying that. We don't have talent on the team. We certainly have talent on our team. But in those moments you gotTa have somebody in the middle of the field when the balls allstone deep you gotta be able to make the place you know that there are there for you to make so that would that would be first and foremost. I would emphasize that if I if I was the coach. Going forward Until I was blue in the face Charles Watson here on the rich Eisen show that said I just have a feeling Davos just sitting there in class and just he's got these guys. How so? How can a team? That's a national champion. That's defending it and didn't lose a game have the ability to say. Nobody believes in US and play that card which is doing he is. I mean. He's playing that card art every day. And I I would if I was everybody else. I'd look out for him and that team on. What say you Charles? Yeah I think so too. I mean I mean anything it give it give credit to dabble entertainment. What they've done over the course of the last four or five years? I mean incredible and football team. I think where people not at Clemson Is is is really not any fault of their own. But it's it's the schedule. Their schedule was pretty favorable. I mean they played the last month and a half or so and and hadn't played a team that was ranked and like I say there's no fault of their own. They just they just have to go out and win. And I think if I think people were were looking for you know Clemson to maybe drop one game Auto scenario scenarios. Where if they were to drop a game and they were out of so it was like people were looking for that team the off somewhere and here yard? They find themselves back in the championship game. the play offs and when the opportunity to go to the championship game again Give those guys a lot of credit. They had to take some of that he for people saying. Hey they're not that good look at who they played in all of that. Good stuff stuff. But we'll see what happens at the end of the season. They'll have their chance to just. Certainly you know. Stick it to where everybody if they if they win another one last couple of minutes but Charles Woodson here on the richeisenshow. uh-huh were you at the heisman or you had a tap out of. That's to go to Oakland. Where you at both? Did you do both. Yeah Yeah I did both men. It was a eventful weekend so I flew out there to Oakland and I did the SOFA for the grind. Yeah Thursday Friday and I sat in New York Friday night I was at the heisman Saturday and I sat back to Oakland Sunday morning. Man so I could be a part of To be a part of that historic moment. Who'd you vote for an Heisman I voted for Voted for the three guys. The guys everybody that was there at risk. That's what voted for. Are you saying that because you don't want to say or you're not allowed to say. Are you not allowed to say no allowed to save me. I'm just trying to have a look. They gave me the trophy man. They're not gonNA take it back. You know what I mean. They can't take they can't take it but no for me I No being able to see Fields in person like I said I thought he was a impressive Impressive as a player that I had seen That season I went with field. And then I went borough and Third was Chase to go chase young or did you go or Jalen hurts. I think I had seen her. I love his story reach Charles. I love his story and Lsu fans were. Obviously you work right now. That's kind of like the last guy that they want to see from the days as in Alabama Obviously that's not Alabama walking through the door and he's Oklahoma. You never know but I love his stick to witness. I love everything about Jalen hurts. I think he is going to knock it out of the park at the combine and I cannot wait to see what he has in store. I love that kid. I never met him but I love what. Yeah watching him. All season and You know the way. He would conduct themselves after games after wins and you know just straightforward businesslike approach. Man You never give people what they want and he just you know stuck his nose to the grind so to speak man and just kept on going forward and Just like you say man his story and especially especially with you know playing for Alabama being a champion of Alabama and then kind of run out of there and have to go to another school and now he has another chance to take another school so you know to a national championship. I think is a pretty cool store. Have you ever talked to Peyton about beating him in the heisman trophy. Do you ever bring that up his at ever come up in conversation Charles else with Peyton manning and you know it isn't that I don't know why I only I only have conversations -tations back and forth with people on twitter okay. He's not on twitter. I know that for sure. Oh Man but when it comes down to it be professional and be somebody who is a heisman trophy winner who gives it to who he thinks is best and does not play any favorites or biases. You you go ahead and you. You voted for an Ohio State Buckeye. That's what you did Charles fact. Yes that happened like you say I I don't give credit where credit's due and A vocal who I think is the best are you are. You are the best lovey Charles.

"Orig- is on demand. Your show your schedule. Fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. Tuck -nology truth brought to you by Geico. Truth. You will certainly send any text about your supervisor to your supervisor Janet thanks did. She lose a bet with a weed whacker. Oh, sent wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more. Outta you're the judge and show on the air live from the Honda studio to have our studio audience with us for another couple hours on our final day in studio from Atlanta from the home of Turner sports is we've been thrilled to be here all week. And I I saw Charles and shack and Kenny and Ernie came in and crashed are set during the NBA on TNT last night. You see that Chris? Yeah. Yeah. Long show. They looked. It's our our houses their house literally it is their house, and it was great having shack on yesterday. And I turned to my left right now with Cuyler Murray about to join us Travis Kelsey and drew Brees as well. Having with the goat of from Michigan on the offense of side of the football here in Atlanta. We should have the go on the other side of the football here as well. And then also just discounts. The fact that for the reason why on the Heisman Trophy is. He did it more than just on defense from the worldwide leader in sports Sunday NFL countdowns Charles Woodson. Good to see you, sir. It's always good. Good. Good. To be with the audience. Nice touch. Appreciate that. Because you're a man of the people absolutely people person I figured we'll have people here to listen to our conversation. So what do you think of this matchup your Joel's? What do you think? It's a really I think it's going to be a really good game. We really do. Everyone seems to think that the Rams were my pick to win the Super Bowl back in September. So we Michigan men guys simpatico. That's our favorite way crease. Guys. I would say did you have them beating the patriots, though ahead think so? Because that's that's what I had Aaron Donald winning the offensive plano. Oh, NFL MVP. Why don't they entirely? He's the best player in football. But he won't get the credit. He deserves because he doesn't score touchdowns. You know? But when you think about it when you watch this man played a game. He has doubled almost seventy percent of time. And he still came up with twenty and a half sacks fat. Thank about that back, man. So bad man, a bad, man. So. When you think about Rams patriots about offense of teams, you know. I thought my reasoning for them winning the Super Bowl being that. This is such an offensive minded game. Nowadays is that defensively the team that win would have to come up with the play similar to last year's Super Bowl. We had a Brandon Graham another Michigan guy came up with the the second into the game to win a game. It would be the same way. I feel like this game. It'll be somebody on the defensive side. And I feel like with the playmakers at the Rams have on the defense that they'll they'll make the play at the end of the game to win the game. So I'm still going still. Still the right way. Rams. So what do you think? Bella check and mcdaniels and Tom are going to do to make sure that Donald to Bella check called quote, unquote, pretty much unblock -able. What do you think they're going to do to prevent that from happening? They're going to double. They're going to try to do what everybody else's you know, tried to do. But if you look at. Aaron Donald plan against the saints. They doubled him. You know, he didn't have his he didn't have a sack you know, in their game couple of weeks ago still disruptive, but he's not second quarterback. So I think that the patriots. I mean, they're going to do what everybody else is trying to do in this double team, Charles. What's in here on the rich Eisen show ones? The first time you met Tom Brady you remember that. I don't remember the first time. But I mean, we came in together, you know, at the university of Michigan back in nineteen ninety five so circle ninety five so right around then you don't recall because I was he not that hyped coming into the team or greasy obviously was the quarterback. Well, it wasn't greasy at the time. I mean, he was he was highly recruited. But at the time we had a guy there by the name of Scott drives about that's right. Yes. Who was the guy? Greasy was his backup. So. So Brady was he was going to be waiting his time. Anyway, because they had two guys there that we're going to be you know, one and two on a depth chart. But you know, everybody asked the question. What did you see Brady, you know, at Michigan? Did you think he'd be this good? Nobody could ever foresee Tom Brady making it to nine Super Bowls. But watching him in Washington where he worked, you know, he's going to be a good player. But with Brady he's you know, like most of the great players. They have something that they rely upon and he relied upon that chip on his shoulder, you know, being taken late in the draft using that as a motivation and a motivational factor to just go out there and at work everybody and become the greatest quarterback to ever play the game because after you left. It was drew Hansen. Who is we all know was Mr. Michigan. He was most hyped athlete to come out of high school and when he chose Michigan. It was kind of incumbent upon Lloyd car to put him in as a starter, and he wound up getting that Brady beat him out again. And that was a Rana time where you know, a lot of coaches will go on with the two quarterback system. You know, play one guy, you know, whether he plays whether or not you bring the other guy in and you know, Hinson was he was the highest recruit, you know, and Brady, of course had. Worked himself into a position to be starter. But now you've got this young stud in trying to figure out how to appease him. And so they ended up, you know, splitting time, and I don't think Brady was too happy about that. But that's part of what what forged the guy. That's now here for super road out about it. Like, I said, you know, the great players, you know, you use something, you know, whatever that may be what did you use? You know, what I just think kind of self motivated in a way I wanted to be great, regardless. But if I if I think back if I go all the way back, you know, my motivation, you know, to be the best that I could possibly be came from my own household. My older brother was you know, he was a star in our time. He played football ran track. He wrestled, and, you know, people used to always referred to me as Terry's little your little brother right now, man. My name's Charles, you know, so very early on. I kind of had that drive that I need to make them name for myself. I'm not I'm not Terry's. Little brother Charles called me, Charles. And so kind of started pretty early with me chills. What's in here on the rich Eisen show? You chose the Rams to win. It all in the Rams are here. Now, you're choosing them. But saints fans, we've got jubilees coming up in our three believes the Rams should not be here. At the Super Bowl, and you, you know. You know? 'cause I finally want Twitter you were pretty vocal at the time about that. Call and how and how badly it was blown you quoted it to the tuck rule moment for you chills. You think that's a viable connection? Right there. I think so you know, when you think about it. You know that play, you know, people say all the time, I doesn't it's not about one play. Well, kinda sorta is about one play because if they make that call to saints can run the clock down kicked a field goal. Of course, there's no guarantee they make the field goal. But you know, followed anticipate purposes they make the field goal games over the saints are in the Super Bowl. You know, you go back to tuck rule if they do not overturn that call we run the clock out. So we go onto championship. We, you know. Of course, there's no guarantee that we win the next week. But that's an opportunity, you know, so for the rest of their lives this particular team the saints. They I have to believe that they believe this was their best opportunity team that they have to win the Super Bowl. Well, it becomes a missed opportunity. And you never know when you're gonna get back. You know, just because you have a good team when you're you know. Tom Brady and the patriots. They're anomaly, it just doesn't happen that way the way they've done it. So it's a missed opportunity for the saints. And it's one that they're going to think about forever, and in my tweet, I was I was pretty much reiterating. A fact that people always come. Hey, get over to tuck rule. Well, listen, I played eighteen years in the football league. I got over the tuck rule, but I still think about the tuck rule like it was a missed opportunity. The saints are gonna think about that play for the rest of their lives because it's a missed opportunity, and they were one play you know, that could have ended the game and got them to the Super Bowl. So it's a you know, you hurt for the players because you know, what planned the game, you know, what you put into this game. You know, everybody looks at it. And it's all you guys are just playing a game. You know, it's fun. This game. Takes a toll on you both physically and mentally. And you put a lot into get into that point to get to the super. A bowl. And so to have have an obvious play, not cold, and it go against you. And then it kind of wipes away opportunity that think about that forever. So I am mandated on behalf of New England fans everywhere, including the gentleman to my left who you know, is a New England fan and also my wife, I turn my back to him. Now. I stand you. Wow. The difference is the talk. Do you not believe the tuck rule was appropriately applied as it was written in the rubel? I do not. I do not feel like. Interesting thing about the way, I think about it. So. I watched the news a lot a lot of times, you'll have, you know, two economists on television, we'll be talking about they're kinda wanna say economy's doing great and one of its into taint would you lay? These kinda MS they both have the same facts and figures same numbers. How can they have differences of opinion? Right two plus two is four right two plus two with four. Yes. Correct. We're all in agree. Right. So when you look at the miscall if you ask one hundred percent of saints fans one hundred percent Rams fan should have have been called. Everybody was saying, yes. Yes. Two to four and our case. Two plus two. Still four. But they added one so two plus two equal five why because they were able to add their own interpretation into it. So they took a play two plus two is four a fumble. They added to own interpretation and made it into incomplete pass because they ruled it a fumble and came back and looked at it. He he's just heinous process bringing ten with you able to take the rule in justify why he overturned it. So if I mean, you were in the quarter low, and you're arguing that his arm was going forward. I would say we're showing me to part whereas arms going forward. You would show the tape you arm, going forward? Then. And then you bring it back. And then I say, we're telling me when did you? Did he fumbled? His arm was going forward. And you would have to tell me. No, he brought it when he brought it back into his body hints the tug rule. Correct. Yes. Okay. So was he bringing it back into his body? But was it into his body? So there's there's there's a technicality. So he's not he wasn't bringing the ball back into his body. When I hit him. He had it both hands on the ball. It's in his body. He ain't bringing it back into his body. So fumble. Two plus two is four unless you add one. See I thought you meant to plus two five because that's somebody's Super Bowl Tom Brady as I can I can dig it. I can dig it. I I love the fact that he's won five Super Bowls. I'm happy actually had before this guy. The fact is he's still here. You know is mind bloom. You know? It's funny Tyler Mike going to the hall of fame. Yeah. And he told me it should be. He told me a story about that night. Yeah. A soda man. Do you wanna tell that story? A so it man after that game. With tile sought you out. Right. Our man, you know ties, I know you're Michigan guys. But I, you know, we lose a game, and everybody's pissed and. Get on the team bus leaving the game getting ready to leave the game. And all of a sudden. Guy comes up the stairs of the bus. Hey, charlie. Charlie. What's up, man? You ain't gonna let your boy. Like talking about. Oh, man what you them. Also the bus. I'm livid, man. I'm like by best Magai. But man, I wanted I wanted to throw hands with type man, but he just I mean, he rubbed it in my face, man. And in it wasn't it wasn't a pretty sight. I didn't appreciate he said that you always would seek each other out after oh that you did not seek him out. So he was going to seek you out despite the fact that it's the raiders team buffs after that game. This man had the other Dassin. To leave his locker room and come on our bus after we got robbed. Yeah. That that took some, you know. Yeah. Took some tacit. Yeah. I don't know if I'm I don't know if I'm over that either. Well, what's more? What's more day? She's him doing that. Or you calling out Barack Obama for not believing in the Packers because he was a bears fan. So if he wants the bears to come to his house, let's go visit him ourselves. Well, I would I would have to say President Obama the most how for mandatory. Yeah. They mild was a little more. But it worked out for you. Did you ever have a conversation with them when you went to the White House? Did you see, you know, it was we only got to see them very briefly because it was. Like out. It was it was around something right schedules are mixed up. So we actually flew there on a way to a preseason game. So we got there. And you know, he was busy trying to pass a law. Yeah. He's he's a busy, man. Right. So we were in the White House for like two hours just the team just hanging out. And he was you know, somewhere China, you know, make policy and he came out briefly. We took our team picture and we were on a plane headed to Tampa. He didn't call it. If you didn't call you back out. He didn't call you back out. Ain't no.

So, you know, they they keep they keep me keep me going, and I'm just happy to be out here. No. I also know because you know, I he was on the show yesterday. I'm and I'm a colleague as with the NFL not where you sat down with Dion Sanders. What did he did? He give you any wisdom any words of wisdom. He just said he for me. He was saying, you know, go with your heart. Whatever you do, you know, never looked back. That's with your heart. Those message he's kind of changed a little bit. 'cause if you weeks ago, basically, he said grab a bat. Not look back. I heard that you did hear that. Yeah. But he did not say that to yesterday. No. We talked about it. Okay. So what do you think as you're sitting here? I'm gonna do what I wanna do. Do you do? So you do not know what you're gonna do right now as you're sitting here right now. I have no comment on that. Okay. We're getting closer. So you do know what you're going to do you just don't want to reveal it? Just yet. Yes. That's what you wanna say. I don't want to say, anyhow, I'm asking you. What you think in your mind because it it's I know for sure baseball would love to have you. And so would the NFL, but you would agree though. Let's let's start with this. Would you agree that you can't do both? Love to 'cause you're playing quarterback. So that would be difficult. So you know, that you're gonna have to choose one over the other at some point, you know, in your head when that decision might become an. K because all right. Let me ask you this. I'm having fun with this. I host the combine at the NFL network. Okay. Okay. So will I be saying that's kind of Murray down there. Okay. You don't know that? What you do know that you're just not telling me. No, okay. Geez. You know, you here for Gatorade. You know? You're for the Super Bowl. Okay. Which what is your favorite part about playing baseball? How about that? Let's start right there question. Thank you. You haven't said that to me yet. So the other questions were not as good as what you're saying. No, okay. What do you like about playing baseball? As in the ball is easy. I put it yelling get in the box and just competing, basically, you know, you're gonna fail. We play baseball. Everybody knows that. So there's a rush when you get in the box for those who may not have seen you play baseball. Obviously America has seen you play football of much smaller portion of America's you play baseball who do you model your game? After would you see you model your game after in the least modestly don't worry about it? Just drop a name because we all think we're great at what we do. So go ahead name for you. Okay. So what is your game? Like that. I feel like I can do at all, you know, hit for power if contact. Obviously run fast. You know, the more reps, you know, the better the I'll be now feel so whatever it is. You know, loggains ation needs from you feel like I Bill. Sure. So you you get on. I you can you can be on third within just a couple of pitches potentially is what you're saying pause. Okay. Put the pressure on the pitching pressure on the defense, you know, which obviously you're also used to doing and the other sport. So and then you can you can pop one out. I mean, how many home runs have you had your what's your what's your? What's your best home run here? This was to. So we hit double digits. Do you? Do you Cadillac around the basis? I mean, what your style. Try not to disrespect pitcher too much too much. Keep simple. I'm supposed to you know. That's that's how feel supposed to do that. So sometimes if I'm in the mood for the but not not, okay. So which the five tools is your favorite the most obvious affiliates. Speed. But I I like to hit the ball. Okay. Carla Murray here on the rich Eisen show what your favorite part of playing football. I'd say. Around guys. In the locker room. Yeah. Building the ball. Not about just dropping one in the bucket. Touchdown. All that's great. But you sure, but the Camry of locker room, okay? Kinda Murray here on the rich Eisen show this past year for Oklahoma. How much were you in contact with Baker Mayfield throughout the year collar, not a lot? No, he he was busy himself. And he knows he knows I was busy. So just getting to watch them on Sundays free special. And I know you know, he's he's doing same on Saturday. So after you know, come around the Heisman time is when we kinda started to talk a lot more. It's a lot more. They're out. You knew he had you had to vote for sure, obviously. So what did it mean for you to win the Heisman Trophy, those dream come true? I mean, it's it's still really hasn't really said it's weird. You know? I don't say my life changed. But you know, just everywhere everywhere, I go people notice me stuff like that. So something I've always dreamed of obviously. So, you know, I'm not surprised by any of the reactions and stuff like that. But it's definitely a blessing. Okay. And where is that trophy right now? I sleep next to it. It's on your nightstand. Yeah. Good morning Heisman every type. Seriously. It's it's right there next like there's a night table next to kinda Mary's bed in the Heisman trophies resting. That's amazing. Have you ever woken up in the middle of the night? And you've had it in your spooning. There's no spooning. There's no there's no Heisman spooning, by the way. I would. If I won the highest I've only why have received the Heisman it was asking for prom dates back in high school. I got the Heisman laws. A new name Heisman spooning Heisman spooning is great fantasy team name tough. Look, you gotta do that. Right. I mean, so go so when it all comes down to it. What was more awkward me trying to pry an answer out? If you five minutes ago, we're sitting next to having his name is pronounced by the guy who then hired handed you the Heisman Trophy. What's more awkward? Neither awkward. Okay. Good. Okay. So then. Give me an ad. I mean, like mid February think or next week. What do you think? What I leave this place when you leave this this. There's nothing this room when you leave Atlanta to somewhere around so next week. Have you been talking to your dad or your thought everybody? Your dad. Okay. 'cause you know, obviously, you got guys in it is true. Right. Your was your uncle at the plate. Yeah. He was when Randy Johnson's fastball. Blew up the poor bird that flew in the middle of. Yeah.

Welcome back to the show so Cuyler Maury in the rich Eisen show throwing contest just put seven footballs through the ring through the circle through the whole seven. And there's I seven interestingly enough, I went out not only NFL Duke footballs. But also the so-called middle school sticky balls. The plastic that one resolve said about. Seven out of ten seventy percent. Drew Brees is a seventy five percent. We'll have him. Do it. Next hour aren't cardinals need to trade. Josh Rosen and draft Kyla Murray. Number one on that. That was enough to push him over the the patriots take him thirty first thirty second overall, depending on where they wind up. Would you like that? Would you take that Mr. New England look they were gonna trade up Baker Mayfield last year. They wanted to get a chance I don't know about they were not doing there were. No, there's no way they were going to get that close from where they were positioned at thirty first overall you had to get up to says. Says matter they couldn't have gotten up from thirty two and whatever they where wherever they were to take Michelle. They're talking talking about it. So let's let's get to a news update. Brought to you by our friends at the Honda passport. Go for Chris. Brockman with a special live report route come in with the new brought to you by the all new Honda passport, the ruggedly styled SUV that's as capable as it is stunning head your Honda dealer today. And see why it's the perfect vehicle for your ventures. Chris what are you have over there? All right last time. We're going to hear some of these guys speak before the game on Sunday and Tom Brady talked about how he's changed from two thousand one to now. I think I'm a better player how it was true. I don't think I was the Grete the the best player I could possibly be at that point. I think there's been a lot of work and effort over the years to try to get to where now. Makes sense. What else did he say? Because again that players are not speaking anymore. That's yeah. Yeah. Talked about you get one shot in the Super Bowl playing in this game. You know, you have the two best teams, and you fight it out and just one team wins. And you know, there's no do overs as any retakes Hollywood scripts anything this is live bullets and we've got to go out there and get the job done under pressure. Looking forward to breaking news do overs in the game. It's really strange. So they're gonna just Super Bowl fifty through. There actually have a do over just in case. There's another blown call him. Yeah. We talked about earlier. Ian said on total accessing Rappaport Cowboys don't have any plans at this point to extend Jason Garrett, Jerry. He also noted that his source said Jerry Jones does change his mind a lot and Garrett pointed out in two thousand fourteen and had a massive contract thereafter. Yeah. I mean stop accent in our one he thinks they make the playoffs. He's gonna get his contract extension. And Jerry Jones said he likes what he has with Jason Gary. And I think they make the playoffs with some sound. Oh, sorry. Thank. So we got in our coach we've got a coach that basically now has experienced benefit from it. He is a great safety for everything we're going to do with a young staff. Like, we've got I think we're not ideal position. It's tough to argue with them as John kitten have been added to the often right hit. No has been. I saw some video on Twitter of him. Having some forum where he spoke at a at a coaching form about quarterback play about footwork, and that is his area of expertise. And that is what anybody will tell you. Dax. Largest opportunity for improvement is in his foot work improve that and he'll be appreciably better. And Callan more in this day and age were age doesn't matter of fact, you're trying to get younger and younger in terms of schemes and minds of war scheming. And I'm done. I'm done second guessing him first round pick for Amari Cooper, that I made fun of absolutely worth it. We wondering what they were doing drafting all those off in choice. Choice of Vanda rush instead Calvin Ridley absolutely made sense. Even the tight ends that was seemingly a Bermuda. Triangle position with Witton going in the Monday night football booth. Those guys started producing towards the end of the season. I'm done I'm done disputing that. The Jones are have this this organization in the right direction. They were part of the final eight and with Garrett I think he is telling his fan base. I hear you on the coaching front. I mean, I'm not going to give you a lot of you. What you want which is a complete change in overall. Why would he do that? If the youngest team in the playoffs actually won a playoff game and got to go to the final eight with this coach and most of the coaching staff you made the change at the offense of coordinator position, Seattle it all works out. But he's telling his fan base. I hear what you're saying on not giving him a contract extension. If they don't make the playoffs. He would have fired him. Anyway, why would you want to have all of these guaranteed? That you have to pay all dead money to coach. And if they make the playoffs next year, they win the division and make the playoffs you're assuming they're going to be good enough to have one if not two maybe home games in the in the playoffs and see how it goes. So I I'm done down the Joneses. All right over. All right. All right. Wanna doubt and Tonio Brown? Some more was he doing now he showed up here in Atlanta. Did he did he was at an EA sports event last night? Okay. USA today got him for thirty seconds. Here's what he said. We talked to James Harrison, and we talked to Jerry Rice James just wants you to be happy. Jerry once you on the Niners. What do you want? I just wanna win play with a team. That's win. Mata word. He said they. Oh my gosh. You're going to do that to your mustache old mustache, a blond mustache and the rest the beard. He's great as they come. How famer? Well, the numbers that he's put up our hall of fame worthy. But he wants the Steelers are winning. I mean, that's their problem. And he's a good guy. I mean when we've met him he seems like a really nice guy, and and juju Smith Schuster will tell you a really good team mate. I don't know what to believe anymore. Yeah. Crazy speaking drama. It's a lot of drama, and that's not I think the Steelers are done with the drama, certainly if they're gonna extend Big, Ben and know, what that dramatically sometimes bring to. But. To being a future hall of famers, Julius peppers announces retirement today with the Carolina Panthers seventeen seasons. He's fourth. All time. In sacks you'll go all the freezer first ballot. Greg career. I agree. What else the alliance of American? Football's starting up very soon. Nineteen games on the NFL network. A partnership with NFL network. To and and shack is is in the management of it and multi year programming deal with the network they're going to debut their alliance coverage on Sunday February tenth eight PM eastern following the opening weekend NFL network where air two games per week in primetime Saturday and Sunday night. Okay. Look forward to watching that on at home more from home more football. Right. Shing that from home. Let's talk some hoops, we cut up with Kenny Smith yesterday after the show catch that full interview on the rich Eisen show app. We asked him about Anthony Davis. Here's what he had to say. Do you buy into the fact that Anthony Davis is agent same as LeBron who LeBron is also an owner of the agency has made these maneuvers public to get AD to Los Angeles. And then all of a sudden kyri is is rumored to be open to a reunion and Klay. Thompson would be raising his hand saying I'm coming in July. If all this happens. Do you buy all that right? What best for MS, Los Angeles. That is best for him. If he feels that he can't win a New Orleans his guys into the final eight straight times. He's somewhat even doubt. He has. He hasn't. He hasn't peaked p he's not going down. But he's at the pentacle, and you're reaching yours. And so you could help him ride into the sunset with four or five more championships. It's hard to disagree with that. Really is you know, how exciting that would be in Los Angeles with due respect to the ball family and Brandon Ingram and Kouzmouk who's been just dynamiting right and zoo botch who has been that that would be just a gravy. The fact that he's actually blossomed into something that would be considered a part for Anthony. I mean, if Anthony Davis, and and LeBron James are at a press conference together in Los Angeles one week from today mean magic, I mean, they wouldn't even have to get into the summer to get their star player. They wouldn't have to roll the dice on what the Knicks are rolling the dice on right now. Okay. Speaking of the next let's go inside the dough and wormhole now Steve mills next president. Of course, the big trade yesterday. Kristaps Porzingis to the Mavericks for Smith junior a bunch of other players Steve mills said it was Porzingis who did not want to be in New York anymore. Today's trade will have a significant impact on us moving our team forward over time. It became clear to us that Kristaps was not completely on board with the plan that we had laid out. He's a great player, but this morning in a meeting he confirmed that he no longer wanted to be a Nick, given the uncertainty of going into free agency with a player who feels that way we decided to make this trait. It's just a feeling you get as you're watching how frequently he comes the practices. How long he's around the gym different things that he's doing, and we just started to get a feel that this might be moving in a different direction. Hey, I'm out there. I'm not seeing it. And all I knows, you know, I think the owners the worst owner in sports, and I say that I say that a lot, but he's an absurdly rich man who has given who's given the Knicks front office, the leeway to do something radical and risky, and that is go out there. Bring these guys in. To help. To help clear enough space to get to. Absurdly talented championship cornerstones together in one fell swoop. And hope that the ping pong balls bounce their way that Zion. Williamson comes to the Knicks. It's all going to go down in that three week period between the draft lottery and free agency opening up, and if they don't get the free agents coming and by the way, if the ping pong balls don't bounce the right way that might. Influence weather anybody's common. Whoever comes put JD in the straight shot on tour in his far away from the free agency meetings as possible put James Dolan and his rock band. Whatever you wanna call it make sure that they're on towards somewhere in Serbia or whatever keep them away in just say, the money's yours. Let's go put their coach who I love phys deal. Put them in there in a meeting and let them, sell and say Durant, you're coming here. And hope collide comes is. Well, maybe kyri does is well, and then all of a sudden you're laughing just like the way that the jets that huge trade to move up to the number three spot. They gave up a ton of money. I mean ton of picks. I'm like let SU who they choose. They got darnold so mocking to criticize everything because I'm also not emotionally invested in porzingas like all these poor knick fans have been less ever years. But if he didn't wanna be there, get them out and then. Oh, now, the last the long lasting legacy of Phil Jackson is the purple unicorn dropped in his lap has been traded away for the guy that Jackson should have drafted instead of kina before we left the door and Dennis Smith. They're both there and hope that with Knox. And with these veterans that came that they don't win too many games continued tanking doing great. They've lost eleven in a row keep tanking get the ping pong balls. The right way get the right free agents in if they don't they went down swinging and God bless. My two cents. Career wants to come. Do. You wanna come? I don't know if we have enough time phrase what he said he basically committed to his recommitment to resign with Boston. Makes sense keep your options open certainly Anthony Davis is going to go to Los Angeles. The mix up all of these opportunities for somebody to max out like that. Yeah. His money, quote was I don't know anybody bleep. Hey, that's wonderful. Wonderful Celtics Knicks tonight on ESPN that's gonna be as the kids say lit. That's gonna be great this guy. All right. Travis. Kelsey is first up. Then it's drew Brees. That's the way we're rolling on our final hour here from Super Bowl fifty three in the AT L. Have you checked out the big podcast with shack here podcast one? Yeah, we talked basketball. But we're a lot more than just sports goose for this lady.

It's great. I love it. both Pat Shurmur and Eli Manning Have Spoken Daniel Jones is talking right now so again are our Los Angeles. Broadcasting Centre crew has been very busy today turning around some Daniel Jones sound as quickly as we can. That's going to be in our news update second Chris and I. I WANNA take a couple of phone calls. Folks have been patiently waiting. We had two very long interviews and our number one and two in studio and Let's turn to death in a New Orleans. What's up seth rich how you doing? How are you seth all right talking with like the jets nicknames I wanted you to think of you've gotta be faulk and sickened me? Na It's coming. It's coming to a backpage near you and New York City but it's common and then I I wonder if your opinion about Teddy Bridgewater because because you know like I'm smarts broken that your reasons out but I think after a week she might be okay well. Here's the thing seth news is breaking right now that I'll pass on to you while you're here on the phone that the breeze is not being put on injured reserve which is good news that means they can be back within six weeks because otherwise you'd you'd put him on injured reserve and that would be eight right right so that's a and B. What did it Brockman? What did he tell you yesterday that we're talking about the wrong quarterback correct correct? Let's talk about the rain wrong. quarterback tastes him hill in in my mind is going to be utilized by Sean Payton in a manner that he's been holding back because he's got a golden era parent if you know what put him in now thanks for the call Seth yes Sean Payton has refused to name Teddy Bridgewater as the starter this week against Seattle Seattle. Get ready for the first two quarterback system the NFL has seen he's coming. He was asked if he was gonNA limit tastes tastes them hills usage and other positions. Hell no now that he's the number two quarterback Sean Payton responded. You're assuming he's the number two correct number two and all I was looking for to confirm my belief about tastes. Hill was the addition of third quarterback and who was signed to the practice squad J. T. Barrett Eric who I I'm just I would be. I wouldn't be stunned. They're only gonNA use Emma short yard situation. It would not be deedee help help. They need J. T. Barrett on fourth downs that they'll get when they shouldn't right okay. He's a specialist at that yet. He's a specialist by the way one of the greatest college the football players we've ever seen including Ohio state with. I am boiling him down to one play just to make myself a better feel better inside J. T. Barrett Eric. I wouldn't be surprised if he's active for the game because you just in case one of these Tastes Hill could get blown up over the Middle Blah or or he's GonNa take the majority of the snaps and bridgewater will come in on certain passing downs in heels GONNA come out and in or he'll go out to slot and and Teddy Bridgewater Bridgewater will be quarterback and it might be Teddy Bridgewater taking ninety percent of the snaps but why let Pete Carroll know a damn thing yeah good luck good luck Seattle on trying to figure out what's coming your way and you know Sean. Payton is not viewing owe us. ARGO quarterback is out there goes our season season. No he's got a ton of pieces and that diamond between his temples here they come. I'm excited to see that game and as you know are small and unluckiest lock of the week is what I smell. There might be a few this week. We'll do that tomorrow L. But I I am not looking at the saints like Duh there. They go. I mean forget it and you know Teddy. Bridgewater stunk it up and week seventeen seventeen and he didn't really look all that good in Los Angeles when he had a you know the game was still a game and go the saints. I can't wait to see see what Payton's conjuring up because there's no rules there are no rules eight four four two zero four rich number two dow. Let's get the rest of your news update brought to you by our friends at Honda through it and now a special live report rock men with the new brought to you by the Honda accord whether you're headed to the stadium or just running out for plain old snacks snacks the accords going to get you there in comfort and style Christopher the floor. Is Yours Okay so giants folks speaking today. We'll hear from Pat Shurmur first recapping talking about Ui Manning a Dow Jones Daniels are starter allow back them up and we're moving forward. Daniel Jones ready to play and we're going with them. We do everything we can to win football games and at this point we feel like he's the guy we want to move forward with. Daniel Jones is going to have the benefit of to start here fourteen games names of a guy that's done it. I mean this guy is what a giant exemplifies not only as a player but as a person and he's going to have the benefit of this guy's assistance as we go through it so my gut told me it was the right time but that narrative that you don't bring Eli back you know I. I think think that's just something for us all to talk about also said Eli is one Daniel Jones Ankle injury from being out there so I mean the ally's going nowhere right. He's there to mentor this kid and ally knows house. He's gotTa be ready and essentially said such yeah and so I now here's the new giants quarterback Daniel Jones excited for the opportunity. You never really know when when something like this is going to happen and my job is to be ready and to continue to improve and you don't know when something like this can happen I can't you can't control that. So you know I understand the responsibility understand the the challenge. You know I feel ready and you know certainly looking forward opportunity my God he's Eli Manning. I means the same person he sounds like him. The cadences the same the words of the same my God. He's no wonder they drafted him. He's the same person it seems like you never going to get the phone. Call in the middle of the night singing as Daniel Jones did it you know at a at a toll booth or at a club or you. You know you never going to get that phone call. He's he's GonNa. He's never gonNA show that emotion. He's going to be a more mobile version. Maybe the bigger arm than Eli Manning by the way many seventh all time in passing his lips F. Y. Okay I mean let's not let's let's wait tilly. Eli finally retires to have this conversation. Shall we or we'll see what happens by the end of this year saint per the same person it's amazing. He sounds. Can I hear that soundbite one more time honestly if I told you who is this Daniel Jones our ally manning. You'd have to think twice about excited for the opportunity. You never really know when something like this is going to happen. I and my job is to be ready and into continue to improve and you don't know when something like this can happen I can't I can't control that. So you know I understand the responsibility understand the the challenge feel ready and you know certain looking forward opportunity. It's amazing. It's it's unbelievable. Well good luck to him and Eli handed like a champ and of course an absolute champion of course all right so Ian rapoport saying that Jalen Ramsey unlike could've traded before tomorrow's Thursday night football Jalen Ramsey did talk about what has been going wrong down in Jackson. Oh want to answer every single question racing it's our guide about different situations and what came about lead to this point. I have bad negative to say at all about anybody in this building happens. It is what it is. Everybody for the most part knows were set. I want all my dogs Glam Ball. I want to wait a month Thursday austere here. I'm in a real space and I'm a piece. last guy came in here real positive. I'm still I'm still on me and my agent. We we are not the ones who leaked information Asian and I was very strict about that because I did not want it to get out and on. I didn't want to be a distraction. I don't want everybody asking my teammates all type of questions throughout the week so let let me be real clear about that. I was not the one me and my team. We will not the one that leaked information so if he didn't order the code red wine with San Diego touched Sunnis the Jaguars put it out there. Maybe I mean which is another reason. Why if that happened of course he wants to hell out of there yeah so he was talking yesterday? Dion Sanders tweeted out this morning. IF I'm Jaguars Management I don't allow Jalen Ramsey to play Thursday night because of the risk of injury that could dismiss a great trade and future picks he will be traded Hashtag truth breath make sense it does do you think Jalen Ramsey place tomorrow if they are planning on trading him and and the offers are getting in sound pretty good the either pull the trigger right then and there or you deactivate I mean why why would you send him out there. I don't know I mean look what happened to Trevor Siemian. I mean you know I I mean I I ca. I don't need to go through the the examples of how one snap could be. Somebody's last Dionne spot man when he said he will be traded. He must hear from Jalen. I mean there Florida state goats right there. I'm telling you seattle sounds like a perfect spot there if I'm the NFL Seattle but he's he just reeks reeks of Seattle Seahawk bringing the swagger to the Ba- I mean that's what they'd be missing in the secondary. They've missed. They've been missing for a couple. Yes yeah so we're GONNA get fourteen games of Mason Rudolph for the Pittsburgh steelers Tomlin talked about what he thinks. Ben Rothlisberger is GonNa do come back from injury. We released some statements. I think yesterday that really kind of outline Atlanta our collective sentiments as we sit here right now and and being released a statement as well he fully appears to come back from this injury and everything that we've heard we're we're comfortable that that is a strong possibility I think yeah and at least they'll find out what they have in Mason Rudolph and like I said the best way I've Said said it from this microphone and I'll repeat it again. The Best Way to evaluate a young quarterback is to protect him. Give him weapons and have a good defense so they've got good offensive line the weaponry we we need to see you know the way the way you know I was on the around the NFL pod yesterday in Chris Wesseling pointed out on we've made an excellent point that that ben likes receivers who get themselves open and it's kind of freelance lansing and that now how it'll be let's go receiver here throat. You need to be an spot and Mason Rudolph will find him and that it might actually be crisper with all of these new receivers I instead of getting used to just freelancing with Ben. It'll be a little bit more structured and we'll see what happens with Rudolph and makes they go and trade for Minka Fitzpatrick so that's what they think of Rudolf wait evaluate. You've got fourteen games and then if they APODACA Romo problem that's a high high class problem have one of those guys that helped Mason Rudolph it offset all those records at St James Washington one of the guys he's thrown into in Pittsburgh now and on top of it. You'll know he's doing well when in the middle of a a series in week twelve for the let's just say seven and four steelers coming off their bye in the middle of the third third quarter series that Mason Rudolph is six for seven Ben runs on the field in the middle of a placing. I'm ready. I'm ready. Look at me. you know like like Rodney Dangerfield in in caddyshack. Oh my on my own I think in all of us and then all of a sudden he's out there in the middle of the fairway some other. NFL Notes Ian said Cam Newton still in a walking boot today. He's not practicing as he battles. This re aggravation of his foot. Sprain foot is so he will know more about his status soon. If he can practice this week he might give it a shot on Sunday so stay tuned for that James Caan or not sure if he's going to practice today but competent he's he's GonNa play Sunday against San Francisco or good drew brees having surgery on his thumb to day no timetable for his return but as you mentioned not going on I r Doug Peterson Pietersen said both to Sean Jackson alshon Jeffery Day to day battling their injuries and after all season long Yankee fans waiting for Luis Severino and dellenbaugh Ellen Betances to get back on the mound saw yesterday Severino touched ninety eight and the Yankees shutout win over four innings over the angels and Betances chance got back on the mound and promptly tore his Achilles so they get their ace pitcher back who we assume with two weeks before the postseason oh season will be ready to start game. He went through four innings and look that way he should be able to do five six by the time October hits and then in terms of the back end of the bullpen and they will not be having dylan so there's that you wanNA play this. Mike Leach sound real quick. We have time we do not want to go after Charles. It's an incredible I know and just a real quick. the Yankees and the Astros have the same record in the American league dodgers one behind which is why why Major League Baseball has done the right thing home field advantage in the world series isn't on a rotational year like it was when we were kids American league one year Nagy in other or that Cockamamie all star game victory earns you the right to host as a league the first two games of a world series. It's now about best record in baseball so the dodgers Yankees and Astros despite already locking up their divisions essentially have some meaningful meaningful baseball games to play you think you think the dodgers WanNa go to the Bronx or Houston for game six and seven Nope okay right you think the Yankees want to go to Houston for a game six or seven or or vice versa Houston and New York nope no chases fun.

He is is none other than Charles Woodson. How are you Charles Bridgeman how you doing I'm doing well so we just showed a clip of you with? TB Twelve I I mean what is it like with hold on. Let's start with this way. First Time you met Tom. Brady was one Charles Man. It had to be nineteen eighteen ninety five. It's been a long time man but I mean we were freshmen together at Michigan so it's it's been a long time ago rich and now I mean so what is it like to see him twenty four years later after what you and he you accomplish and he is still accomplishing Charles yeah manually it was great to see him in you know spend a little time with me. I've been a couple of years since I really you know was able to just sit down and chat with him for a little wow but it's it's just crazy you know to you know see him walk in that door. You know as a six times super bowl champion. I mean you know people always ask me all the time you know what. What did you see Tom Brady and school you know did you ever think he'd be good and you know it's it's just crazy to come you know to be here twenty four years years later and him being a six time super bowl champs so yeah it was fun and just didn't sit in chat with him a little bit you know just trying to get inside in his mind a little bit so and in terms of getting inside his mind it seems from what I've heard you try to get inside his his kitchen a little bit where you did you bring up the Tuck rule with him moment Charleston that actually happened or will we see that tonight on on epochs this evening Sir Yeah Yeah Yeah you you Kinda got you gotta stay tuned to see you know what happened but you know I kind of started? It all started it off with that so we'll we'll see you watch your that was your opener Charles. That was my hello. How often do you do here about that Charles Woodson by the Tuck rule? Yes Sir Man I you know I I feel like I hear about the Tuck rule every day. I feel like it comes up. Somehow some way in some compensation you know the Tuck rule. You know what I mean. Especially you know when you run it into a raider fans. on a daily basis always say it was still a fumble so I mean you can never ever get away the play hearing about that place you know put the rest of my life so all the time which I know you commented on it on twitter so I wanNA get fresh right here here. We had freshly minted pro football hall of Famer ty Law on the show recounting that night here let's pause our chat for a moment installed on this memory lane and get your comment on the other side. It was funny because after the game you know normally every time I play against Charles we meet up in a parking lot and you know just chop it up but after that game I'm coming you know by his buses. I'm like we're GONNA come boy so I seen when he came up I was like would he walked straight on the bus so in typical tyler fashion. I'M GONNA go and say hey. You're gonNA come talk to me. It's just a game even though to go to the Super Sup- Bozell I walked on on the bus on the front of the bus not like would you raiders the raiders bus and then everybody was sitting there looking. I said income on me now. Anyway ran the whole team about like chasing me and I remember rain off the bus man rich man yeah that's that's true story man I mean and and it happened exactly that way I mean after the game you know we're we're really pissed off about the game and you know everybody has heard my clothes after the game. You know it was good no Nah I was. I was mad man because I felt like we were arrived. Raider nation set we were robbed. The team grew and everybody so we were robbed and of course I'm not in the mood to talk to anybody entire. Everybody knows somebody man and uh feels like I I couldn't. I couldn't even look at him man so I got on the bus man here he comes back steps up two steps fund a hey what's up man. I'm lifetime income on Broadway we doing today. I know the man and I'm they're like 'cause 'cause he's my boy. You know what I mean. The bus not only looking at him but then they're looking at me like just came on talk crazy awesome that was like that was the insult to injury right. They're mad at that that it hurts so I mean it hurt so bad at the moment because we we really really had a really good team. we went there to New England played in the snow. You know coming from California. Nobody specs you're going to be able to play and then basically basically a blizzard and we went out there and we took care of business and you know what we've made the play to win the game and you know they overturned the call. Of course everybody knows Oh so then you know they go down you know kick field goal or whatever and then they kick another field goal in overtime games over and that's the way it in so it it I mean it's like you know no other game that I've been a part of my short career at that time and so yeah okay I was hurt but that was that was time and I was like that day is like Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show for the here and now at the raiders I know you're obviously very tight with them. What can you share about a Antonio Brown with the fan invasion of of what exactly happened there Charles you know I feel like the the Oakland raiders really bent over backwards to make things work there in Oakland a man that was a a lot of things that went on you know you had the whole uh-huh situation you had you know the cryotherapy you know situation where all of a sudden you couldn't practice instances of him you know just leaving leaving and in the raiders wanted to make it work may he's an all world talent and you know when you're a talented player in in in any Li Oh you know you're afforded some exceptions and so they they gave him every exception that you could possibly give a player expecting that he was going to be a raider and and then all of a sudden you know reports come out about you know him in the outpatient with with the general manager and then man Dan he releases a video where you know tape recording the conversations and so of course it you know I it reached a level to where it couldn't go any further the met and so I mean that's Kinda just the way you know this recap of the way it went down but I know the raiders they've bent over backwards to try to have tonio suit up into silver and black well? I mean you know when when people get confused or there there's no answer for something you know. Obviously that's when conspiracy theories come out in the one that Antonio Oh realized that it wasn't going to work there for whatever reason and he did his best to go out knowing that New England would be sitting there for him and he orchestrated the last last few days. I mean Chris Mortensen even reported from your former place of business. You're now with Fox sports congratulations on that that you bet that that that he he sought out methods to get himself out through social media experts. Do you put any credence into the fact that he didn't want to be there anymore and fought his way out to New England. You know I think as as as you know the way things ended up it does seem a little bit that way and and here's what his what I base it on. He had a whole issue you know with with the helmet you know. I wonder where my old helmet uh-huh can't find a helmet. This doesn't work this is another word it's a little work and following agreements with the NFL all of a sudden you know it goes through the problem with the GM and then you know to tape and then all of a sudden okay making all these noise about all of these different things and then he gets his way out of Oakland goes to New England okay so at that point. Wien is the company that helped me company. They decide to break ties with them. Have you heard anything about that helmet sense now well like you would you would assume if he's mad about people who you know you know chastise them. You know for lack them a better word or people who don't want to deal with them or that he doesn't like or you know severs ties with what we've seen in the last three months he lashes ashes out. I haven't heard anything from him a from anybody this camp about him having any problem with Zina's letting go and in and everything he knew England haven't heard well. Maybe maybe that normally normally happen with New England right that somebody else's for the lack of a a better phrase problem player becomes a model citizen once they're in the Patriot way system. I mean you were there. You saw the Patriots. I mean did you you sense any any boat rocking that was going on involving number seventeen formerly eighty four on that day when you personally were standing on the sidelines. I didn't see anything remotely close to being out of order in the England I mean they walked out there on their field and they were well oiled the scene and the most interesting thing to me is I'm sitting there on the sideline and the first you know he didn't start the game with got got into second place taking play and they went to him. You know three out of five three out of four times. Get him the ball and I just I remember turning down. Turn around around talking to one of the producers of that. I'm like this bill belichick putting the middle finger up to everybody out there that had a problem with Tony Brown going into to New England so I didn't see any problems with those people were speculating or talking about how difficult the New England office was but I see I saw him went. Run JET SWEEPS SO I'm I've seen routes. I saw motion I saw him shipped in and I saw a guy who seemed like he was well versed in their often so I think there's something into it where where he goes to New England Brady brings them in and they are going over the offense and he's making sure that Antonio Brown is ready to go out there and play and it looked like he had been there all training camp so I can see you know one iota of a of a problem with him. Being there and I think you know with everything that's going on. You know he's GonNa he's GonNa have a fantastic year with the New England patriots because we haven't her anything out of Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show fresh off again being in Miami for the Patriots Dolphins game for in a epochs tonight nine eastern time for nfl the grind what about the dolphins Charles. I mean so much conversation that players veterans are asking their agents to get out because the team is just flat out tanking what the front office is doing. You can't argue with the fact that they they are setting up for a two thousand twenty draft. Despite there's still fourteen games left in the two thousand nineteen season you spoke with Minkah Fitzpatrick. Some of that video will be used tonight. What did you sense from this team Jean Charles? I you know I looked at I was in the locker room and it just I don't. I don't think I know whether they're coming or going. At this point. you know you go into the season and you know you talk about America Fit Patrick. WHO's the guy who who play well for for them? a draft pick. There's there's you know you don't think of him being a guy. That's on the on the trading block but you know these things. Kinda seem to happen when coaches to ask come in or do. GM's come in like they come in. You know not really caring about who was there before them and you guys are speculating that all man this team is thinking what about rebuilding and then you know management or coaches will come on and say no. We're not rebuilding. All of a sudden weakness traded during the time that I was at a couple of days Kenyan drake Kenyan drake was all of a sudden on the trading block and you know they're stockpiling all of these draft picks and sometimes I think as a player you just want them to come out and say hey. Hey Yeah we're we're. We're we are rebuilding. I mean they they're stockpiling. A bunch of draft picks for next year in years to come so you know this is a team right now. I'm Oh man I think when I watched that game Sunday they really came out fighting. I think they were embarrassed. The first game with season obviously here comes the defending the new world champs that just brought in another high impact player to add to a team that was already rolling and they went out there man. I really believe that that they've fought but you know what rich sometimes you just read it to a better team and it was like a buzz so you know they just you know New England what they do is they just systematically and methodically data cly go down the football field and they just put up points and you know you look at one point in the game and all of a sudden they have thirty points. You have no clue where those points county Komo came from so for the Miami Dolphins those guys are. They're you know they're just gonNA have to fight through this period of time. This is going to be a rough up season. I got a chance to you know just picked his Avian Howard spoke before the game and then also after the game and I wanted simplicity mess him up on John Gordon and he played a fantastic game on Gordon and my thing was to him and just be by message to the entire dolphins team as well. You know you gotTa put you. You just got put good film out there. I mean you understand the noise. That's around surrounding the team but you can never let that affect how you play as a person yeah during the a week you know you'd think about it and thinking you're sore and you're hurt but once you get in there between the lines on Sunday man you gotta go out there and do your job and and they've Oh my God I that I watched closely during the game. He's not going to quit on the team. He's going to go out there continue to try to put put them out. There and I think a lot of those guys are going to do it as well but like you mentioned right now. Nobody knows who's GonNa who's going to be on this team for the duration or next season before I let you go your thoughts on align and getting benched. You're obviously played against him. You know him and we assume he's going to be eventually in the same room. You will be in Ohio one day. what do you think about the development of the giants Charles Obvious Move Plan. I think once people saw so young Dan Jones in the preseason and the way he kind of Slung slung around then all of the praise that was kinda heaped on him. You know the way he came in and played in his previous thought the writing was going to be on the wall. If Eli didn't really come out and you know really just re I think he was going to have to come light it up. You know for them not to make the change range but I'd rather it happened like it happened. This time. You know a couple of weeks into the season. You got a new guy in that. You're trying to evaluate in get him plan time and experiencing the game. I didn't like the way they unceremoniously. Did it the last time a couple of years ago when they said Oh well he's he's not gonNA start but we may later in the game. I didn't agree with but at this point in time you know I think the writing was on the wall that they brought his young kid here to play and I think it was the obvious move and I think it is going to be the right move for their team to see what they actually have in that building Charleston can't wait for people to see a work on epochs tonight at nine eastern time on nfl the grind good luck with Fox sports and I appreciate the care package I received here at the rich Eisen. Show studio. I opened up to new bottles of Charles. Woodson's Woodson's wine called intercept great name love the name lava so and it and it tastes great Charles. It's it's it's. I'm fine juice. You're making their sir well. I hope you didn't expect anything. Less rich all come on now Charles. Are you know I love raising a glass with you you you know what you only know one speech. I know that look forward to raise a glass with you so I hope so. I hope so Charles you the best. We'll chat again soon. You go blue right back at you. That's Charles Woodson the go at Charles Woodson on twitter and instagram great photograph of him with Brady on instagram again. It's one of those things where I hear from the producers at NFL films hey this week we're sending jerome. Bettis Pittsburgh at Charles Woodson going to Miami and then all of a sudden now on instagram out POPs up pops a picture of him with Brady sitting down for the grind and I'm like okay okay. This is the way we're rolling here. I like it and again just real quick throw to break comeback leave enough time for the wonderful Mike Leach to have the floor and only he can the players are not gonNA tank. You just heard this. I'm telling you the players of the dolphins are going to try their best. The coaches are going to coach their best. The problem is is there don't have their best players on the field because they're being shipped out or they're not being retained and that's Don Don on purpose in order to make sure they get the quarterback from Alabama that they want so when I say dolphins are tanking I am not trying to denigrate a single player or coach I am not they're going to try very art. You heard what Charles said you gotta put the best tape ape on film not only for your own self the prideful men who play the National Football League game not only for yourself but for your career career you know you want out you want a new spot. You don't want to be part of this anymore. You gotta put the film for the eye in the sky is in the thirty one other teams. That's why you know I. It's a tough spot town near right now at eight four four zero all four rich number two dow when we come back the Great Mike Leach in a way that only Mike Leach can that's next on the rich Eisen show set up the rest of our week on our guest list.

You'll either be lights out like Severino or suffer seasoning ending injury like dilemma. There has been no gray area for the Yankees this year. It's been kind of crazy but that's happening and New York State St New York State Senate is has written a bill s six seven to two if you're scoring at home that bill is New York's version of allowing college athletes to monetize name image and likeness rights so I guess the NCW will have to kick out member schools from California and New York. Sorry Chris bummer there surtitles Hughes's out Don Dang it so maybe Syracuse can play you know. Ucla sure the way I'd I'd see Ucla basketball versus Syracuse and the classic programs. I mean so there's that of course Jay Bilas Jiu Jitsu Jay Bilas is pushing it out out here instead of cal out here on the West Coast Mike Leach would he say he was asked about somebody asked him if they did a battle Royale Al of all the PAC twelve mascots as who would win go. Let's hear it first of all what kind of mythical powers does a Sunday will have. We've got to consider that what I'm going to say the wildcats out the Trojan. Does he have a horse or is he on foot does he have a bow and Arrow or just as soared the brew indefinitely formidable another bear up there at cal the tree I mentioned that trees can get chopped down unless we're going to go with the bird and somebody he might get packed or something I don't know duck might lose interest and just fly away and get out of there which may be good advice under the circumstances the Husky no chance dance the beaver well. We'll see how long that bieber can hold his breath. the you again. We're back to Izzy theon horseback. Does he have a narrow. Did he trade for a rifle. I mean you know 'cause if that you've got a rifle. There's some definite problems. Buffalo's GonNa be pretty hard to tangle with a mean above buffalo's utterly outstanding delete any amount Cougar Mike Leach everybody buffalo's utterly outstanding everybody gave it some thought the tree I mean a beaver you can take care of the tree right away right right. I like the duck just gets bored and falls away yeah pretty funny our frontal poll results. Would we have over there the team yeah we own two teams best shot to make the playoffs the Carolina Panthers thirty one percent okay and should we trade Tom. MAHOMES seventy nine percent no heart of again the reason why I like playing fantasy Madison football even though when I lose I just wonder why do I do this. is I like having players. I enjoy watching Patrick Mahomes. It's just a delight. Why would I trade him away just in case he's just because Mark Andrews has had two good weeks at the time that I'm just not gonNA do it again?

Woodson is going to be joining us in about twenty minutes time ago we have Also just hung up the phone from Edwards you're on the head coach of Lsu who told us the last time he was on on the show back when the season started that. There's something called. Tell the truth Monday then today. He said today's what. Turn the page Wednesday. Turn it over Wednesday. Hey turnover Wednesday. That's what you turn the page to the next day to the next game And I told him how he's there's There's different too. You is a Tuesday Thursday Friday. It's everything that he's got a name for it. I told him tell the truth. Monday really could have been tell the truth Saturday with what we heard from his locker gorilla speech after beating Alabama. Here's what I'd like to do for your third hour news. Update Chris have to cut that exchange and make that part of your news. His Dad's great his response was fantastic. And I'm GonNa make you all stay tuned for the next hour here if you missed it. Marijuana I'm sorry just the way I will have to roll here. You're right now chase young everybody by the way. What a great name for somebody who down quarterbacks right right name if only vince young was still galactic chase young because that's what does he chases each aces? He chases down quarterbacks he had apparently league A need to mom get some funding for his girlfriend to attend last year's Rose Bowl game. And you know he missed last week's game against Who did they play this past week in Ohio state and absolutely destroy Maryland doesn't matter and question what I heard could be a four-game suspension which would take him through the end of the big ten regular season? Meaning he would miss the game against Penn State and then the game against Michigan it's my Alma Mater and and if that had happened it would be the only time where I would have been thrilled retroactively. That Ohio state made a rose bowl. But let's just say. I greeted that news that a four-game suspension was coming. They're preparing fort with a touch of skepticism. Sure enough it's a two game suspension. Meaning he will be back in time for that game against Penn State eight with another game under his belt before Michigan so just one more game meaning hill have been sat missile. Really teach him that game against Maryland where they put up seventy yup and this week man. What a reprieve for two and seven rutgers? You know what my question is this. Could they suspend if we gave them a list of their top ten employers could they suspend all of them and still beat rutgers by at least three. So what was the score. Ohio State Maryland with seventy three three. Just don't have it right here okay. Maryland beat rutgers forty eight seven ball state might score one hundred. So that'll teach changing not to to do whatever he did even the whatever he did doesn't it sounds like if he could have made name Made money off whose name likeness and image. He wouldn't have. I've had to reach out to whoever he reached out to get the money to go to the roads hundred bucks for a plane ticket by the way who by the way. Let me just be clear in an obvious exactly. Well Hey back yeah reimbursed. Where do you get that money to reimburse mowing lawns? I'm just trying to get him out of the Michigan. Gay Man. NO ONE UH-HUH MAKES DONALD LEMONADE. Okay so there's that news handle that a phone lines are let. Let's take some calls in a second before. We do that though Chris when he got buddy you said something before the show. I KINDA WANNA touch on right here and bring to the people as they say We'll talking Jayson stark and our are number three leading off the spink award winner in the Baseball Hall of fame and museum in Cooperstown New York for his work. As a scribe live and reporters so who better to have on with the Astros caught red handed. Can't Mike Fires who played for them in two thousand seventeen told the athletic. Hey guess what we had. A camera will Myers in On that world championship team in two thousand seventeen we cameron Centerfield a minute maid and we had a system where where the camera will be trained right on the signs of a catcher and that would be related to a television screen inside the clubhouse inside the the dugout hallway. Hey where somebody would bang make banging noise so loud that the battery would be able to hear and that was an indication that there was a an an off speed pitch coming and if you don't hear that means it's coming in hot you say that is is just what I think. That's just the evolution of the gamesmanship of stealing signs. That's been going on for one hundred years in baseball in the League when I played if you're standing on second base and you could see the catcher science you'd say the kid bats first name for fastball last name for I total that one. I have no problem Tom Tom since famous home run is reportedly a result of science dealing. Which is somebody using binoculars soon accuweather? You're saying that this Taisei you still have to hit the ball. which is the most difficult thing to do in sports? And you know the the one of Videos going around yesterday Guys still got out. The guy won the game three to one and it was in Houston and all power. Yes ask Farquaad pitcher in question for the raise And and the video that you're you're talking about John Boy who made a WHO's gone crazy video right. He's He's a pardon me ray white socks Lanza. Yeah I mean. He made videos easy diehard Yankee Fan. He's the one that that that caught the savages comment and everything. you think Aaron Boone. He's been all over this with his videos where you could hear the Bang Bang and in the case of Evan Gattis against far coeruleus quoted in this article by Ken Rosenthal and company from me athletic that that he despite knowing what was coming still did not get ahead man. There's another one of George Springer Parkin won on an Oh to curve ball with a nice short swing like he knew it was coming and I know you still have to hit it but I don't have a problem if there's someone on second base that can appear in and steal your sign that is time immemorial avert a a part of the game where you need to tie your signs better but if nobody's on second base you should not have to be worried about a camera being trained on you and the fact that again. This was real time this can be. This is actionable information to be turned into positive results. It's on the spot on like spy gate. Where spy gate was video information? Mation that was acquired by the team during the first half of a game that would somehow have to be broken down for us used for either another week another day if they could possibly break down the signs and signals for the second half maybe this is worse than what the Patriots got busted for because this was on the spot using technology to its advantage. Judge in a way that the opposing team does not or. I'm assuming doesn't use to their advantage when their whole this is just outrageous -rageous that said they had a better record on the road at home that year. And I don't imagine this is useful during a playoff game as opposed to like you know game forty at home. When there's twenty five thirty thousand fans in the bang to indicate off speed pitches coming can be heard erred anyway? Now if this was taken to another level where the batter's wearing an earpiece and all that stuff then that's pretty egregious heavily penalised penalized but Abang and dugout. That's what we're saying and you can hear it. And because the camera zoomed in on on the sign the centerfield cameras shows everything self respect to Matt respect for the game itself respect. Now you say about this respond game but it'll self respect here. Okay but I can still hit the damn curveball. Without knowing it's Common Joe I buy that eight four four two four. What are we talking about for penalties? Here what are you. What am I duNno stark For sure Their best draft choice should be removed out. What about the manager what? Aj hinch curly. He had to have known about this. In the general manager. Too I love. Aj Man on the show and he's been terrific and they. It's just an embarrassment when you what are you going to. Maybe suspend the manager for the first month next season. We'll see maybe think about spy gate. Bill got fined five hundred K.. Sean Payton got suspended for a whole season for bounty gate. We'll see this is now right there in front rob Manfred causing using. MLB said you know. We're we're we hear you two thousand seventeen. This happened there when the Indians were accusing them of this kind of stuff last year. And then you just outside outside of that. You know I I WANNA ask Jason. How prepared you should be to lose? mookie betts or or Indians fans Lynn Linda. It's not just you but we're seeing some really terrific young studs who maybe want their Miranda three hundred hundred fifty million dollars contract and teams are like no. We're not it's not going to do it. We'll trade you. Is this a new thing in baseball last year. We saw new thing which is viable closer viable ace sitting on the couch deep into the season in that with great right Kimberlin Kyko right and now now we're seeing like studs Who are about to cash in wanting to cash in like Harper Machado and teams based Saint? I don't think we WANNA do that. We'll destroyed you. We'll trade you when you're twenty six at twenty seven from world series champion right Charleston's GonNa call us and let's sneak sneak in a in a couple of calls right here. Let's go to Rick Down in Miami Florida where we're going to be heading for the Super Bowl in a couple of months. What's up Rick Richard? Pleasure being on your show and I bleed green green blood unfortunately for fifty years just like you anyway regarding you know the Stealing a science. If you're John Carlos Stanton and you've two strikes on you you know the next pitch is not a breaking ball or it is a breaking ball that is a huge advantage. Huge and I also wanted to comment on Colin Colin Kaepernick. 'cause rich you didn't mention the fact that the ultimate question will be you're gonNA stand there not because he can never get away of the politics of it no doubt or does it matter matter anymore because I personally think it really shouldn't but and pink a perfect landing spot for him would be dolphins they have five first and second second round picks they can draft a bunch of offensive linemen. They have really good fast receivers and they didn't have to take a risk on a rookie quarterback Brett. Thanks for the call. Appreciate it isn't that The case that we're learning who's appearing and WHO's not that Miami is sending a delegation correct head coaches are being asked about that right now. Brian for for a said. The dolphins will have a representative Matt. Patricia said so Jason Garrett said the cowboys as well ballot check asked about it he kind of deferred said. He'll have to ask Nick Caserio. Reo what they're GONNA do. Matt Nagy said the same thing about Ryan pace that. We're going to ask you that they don't. It's kind of up to the player personnel. I Love Bill. Bill isn't bill doesn't WANNA take a risk on cabinet. But if his if his if he wants to go yeah got it yeah it. He's moving. He's moving on to Philadelphia Philadelphia. The dolphins look he fits anywhere that. There's a need for quarterback the way we are playing football now he was on the cutting edge of that style of play and I can't believe I have to remind people because the here again I understand. People are pissed at some of the things that capture nick has said and done but what he is trying to bring attention to requires our attention. How how do we bridge this? Divide to allow him to be a professional football player again which he should. I think I kinda just boiled down. What is so nuanced? It needs an entire three hour. Show not a thirty second summary that he fits this twenty first century football. He was the guy who did all that for the forty. Niners who benched. Ah I overall drafted quarterback to do it and the offensive coordinator of that moment where he was at his most successful is currently the coordinator for Jim's brother. John and Lamar Jackson. We're seeing what it can look like so it fits fits the NFL quarterback he fits period. Why when you want to have somebody you can play like that now? I can Oreo uh-huh. Yeah he stunk and stunk on ice chip Kelly. He stunk he you know. He was not as effective correct. But he still could play quarterback in this league. You gotta be kidding me especially a backup which he is not by the way come out and said he refuses to be and he hasn't come out instead. I want to get a a JILLION dollars a year. It's GONNA be fascinating workout on Saturday owner. Who is going to be paying? Close attention to it to be honest with you. It's right in the middle of college football Saturday and that might have been part of the reason why the NFL insisted. It's on a Saturday. I honestly do not understand. Also know media loud well. That's that's understandable. That's understandable. Let them let them work out in peace man. Let them get little. It's not like they're gonNA be heckling him. I mean they're just they're trying to document what's going on. Well I mean the the workout itself can be closed right. Does he wanted got it open. I don't know I just think we've come this far. This is actually happening. Let's just open it up. Broadcast live on Youtube. Let's talk about it with Charles Charles Woodson. He's the goat Before we do that. Let's check on our poll question which is reimagined banking by offering savings and checking accounts are no fees minimums one of the nation's best savings rates capital on. What's in your wallet?

It's still Alabama not waiting Minnesota. GOPHERS row the boat. Forty four percent. Bright Roll Tide Thirty Percent Oregon ducks eighteen percent for Baylor seven. Remove Georgia to big ten team. Still I think by having Georgia handled by having Georgia four. You're setting them up to be the I out an Alabama quick replace. That's right that's why they're there at five quick. Replace all right we'll talk to Charles Woodson who's on NFL. The grind grind with me. and Ed Reed Tonight on at nine eastern time. He was in Cleveland for that. Big Cleveland. a win over the bills.

US only the phone lines lit. We'll take your phone calls a lot of you WanNa talk about the cabinet workout. And we'll discuss that in part with my next guest who I love and I don't Oh care who who knows it I love when he played for my alma mater and I loved watching him play in the NFL. And I love the fact that he's making his third of hopefully many more appearances as a correspondent respondent on a show that I host on epic's very proud of NFL films produces it epochs Distributes it it's called. NFL Grind every week. We take a look back at what just went down and one game in particular. Get what we call the deep dive or a couple of games do that in this week Ed Reed and Charles Woodson covered both of them together. The browns bills game he his huger first ballot hall of Famer in the NFL. Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show. How are you Charles? Men Don't wear and how you doing. I'm doing great Before we get to. I guess what you talked about with affects. Let's talk about a couple more more recent items in the NFL Docket first of all that Monday night game game it looked like a playoff game to me. Bobby Wagner on the show yesterday talking about The hits that were delivered in that game. What your guy? I always played in games like that Did it did it. Look and feel like a playoff game to you Charles. Manson is certainly. Did I think bobby. Hit it right on the head when you talk about the physicality casualty of the game And of course you know with the linebackers do and in the defensive line offers flying going at it but I thought one play man From a veteran in corner one of the one of the best in our game right now. Richard Sherman getting blocked by Medicare if I believe in pair of came off the line very aggressive got into this Sherman Sherman forty miles and then Sherman came up and maybe and I mean that was that was probably one of the best hit tonight but it came from the cornerback and I think in that particular play right there man just kinda showed you. What kind of energy level was involved in that game right right then and I thought that it definitely had EH playoff atmosphere I think it also had the element of you know. Richard Sherman hadn't been on the other side and in that locker room playing with those guys and those guys have in that mutual respect but wanting to beat each other. You know what I'm saying so I thought that game was. That was one of the better games I've ever seen. What's the I agree with you? And that's that's kind of a lot coming from you right there. What's the most physical game you ever played Charles? I think probably anytime we play the giants you know. I think the giants always came with a with a physical mindset They were one of the teams. I think that played you know with a more old-school approach where they would line up in twenty one personnel and you know they weren't always Concerned with you know going eleven personnel. You know went back one tight end three wide receivers I They would like to line up in the backfield with Brandon Jacobs and Bradshaw and they would try to pound you and so you know you had to tackle those guys. If you're a corner yes you had you had to cover your man but you had to come up and make tackles and run game so it was always dealing with the with the With the New York giants I was at more. We're seeing a photograph of you with Chapman Eli but you're in a raiders. Uniform was that packers more often than not. Or what do you think when you played them. Yeah packers man. Dan Playoffs man. I had to see those guys in playoffs twice and they beat US twice on the way to the Super Bowl and so you know those are two games. You know That you wish you could have back was not in the championship game. And they went on to beat New England the first time. And then the second time Playing those guys I believe in two thousand eleven and they beat us in the second round we had to buy week. I believe they came into our house twice and beat us but ah they were always a physical football team and it seemed like no matter when we played it was always the giants they were always the most local teams well Charles after that Monday night game we're again. Seattle came up with that huge win. They matched both Green Bay. And also now San Francisco with eight wins somehow someway way Atlanta got off the Mat to spank The saints in their own building and the Vikings took care of business in Dallas. And so you got three eight win teams. You got two seven. Evan win teams. Who is the best team in the NFC right now as we enter week? Eleven in your estimation Charles Woodson Madison. That's a tough question. You hit me with man I will say I did a teams right data that you just mentioned I gotta I gotta go. I think it's the San Francisco forty nine as a thing right now I just think because of You know their defense and the way to visit plan. I think that Garoppolo. I think it's taken in some time. You know coming off of that knee injury. I still don't think he's quite as comfortable as it was before. He hurt that knee but I think he you know he's so some flashes in the game the the other night He seemed like he was. You know just starting to kind of get a seat up under him but then cloudy and the boy started heating up on. Thank you still need a little bit more time But I think with the way that defensive player right now with the very opportunistic. You've seen those guys going. After football in the back end you know creating turnovers You know give Seattle some credit with Russell Wilson. I mean they just got a great quarterback but I think team wise I will go with the with the forty nine is is. He's Russell your MVP as we currently stand to WHO's your MVP. Oh Man I love Russell is doing I so I give them all the credit credit in the world but this young Guy Lamar Jackson down in Baltimore Man. I think he is just turning his right now with what he's been able to do this year in the way things things to just be out there kind of toying with with the senses right now I think. What would that team is? If Lamar Jackson. Doesn't you know turn the ball over down the a stretch and when they get into the playoffs I think they're definitely a super bowl team and if he if he able to get that team Role in the second happening the second half of the season the way he's been doing the last couple of games I think he wins. And and let's stay on the subject a little bit Charles. Because of the concept of the sustainability sustainability deep into January. This offense is being called into question. I guess because Lamar and this offense got thumped by chargers team. That might not make the playoffs this this year. What is your stance on the subject of that offense in the weights being running how viable it could be to win a super bowl this year? I think it's very viable because I think that there are multiple kind of keeps you guessing with with you know different personnel groupings. And and You know the thing about what makes their often so heart is in your own defense. You don't account for the the quarterback in the run game you know so. He's the next to run. So what ends up happening. Is You get an extra blocker. So they run power games you know with Lamar and Running back which is you know you. Don't you know not gonNA see from every quarterback quarterback so it it tests your discipline And then with him his escape ability is second to none. I mean he can get out of just just about any jam. He's in on the football field. You know I think that you can buy run game. His escape ability in the fact that he has gotten a better as a passer. Yeah so I think he's another guy that is just getting more comfortable in the NFL. And I think he's making better pros really quick release which I think is great. You know for attribute for a quarterback to have But like I say for him it'd just be not turning the ball over it and I'm I worry about him More fumbling about it and I do passing the ball so if he just takes care of the football you know from that standpoint not fumbling. I think this team in office and what they do I think they're going to be a tough out. Well I mean the offensive coordinator for Baltimore is the Same Offensive Coordinator Colin Kaepernick that that ended your packers career. Your last game Green Bay Packer was that playoff loss to capture nick in the forty. Niners what are your thoughts about capper knicks viability as a quarterback in this sir sudden arrangement of a workout By the NFL. Four cabinet for all thirty two teams to attend on Saturday. Charles what do you think about this news. Well I think it's a it's about time You know a certain took took long enough for guy certainly talented enough To plan plan the NFL. I think uh-huh to me the only thing I heard some of that. He's been out of the League three years. Now so What player are you going to get? You know for a guy who's been on a three year hiatus. I'm I'm sure he's still relatively young. Hasn't had the beating he's Outta take for the last two years but that's a long time to be out of the game But also to the thing just just going back to Lamar Jackson and working with a grain Roman who I believe is the coordinator who worked with Kevin. I think if he is to go to a team that you you have to have somebody like a Roman that is able to utilize you know what he's good at and a Lotta the things that Tamar Jackson is able to do they were able to do. When cabinet was in San Francisco so okay so so now you're looking at him right now to maybe bring him into your locker room? But what are you going to do to utilize utilize his talents and get the most out of Kinda cabinet So with that being said can he play absolutely. I mean we all. We've all seen him play. We've seen him Take a team to a championship. Game seeing them get to the Super Bowl and didn't win it but he he was able to do those things. He's been a good quarterback But now having had three years off what. What player are you getting now? So you know Kudos for teams giving him a look but man Dan. They certainly waited long long enough in. And perhaps you know wasted some of these young man talent Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show Tonight on epochs at nine eastern eastern time NFL Grind you and Ed Reed Converge with bills and Browns. What'd you learn about the browns? You saw the win there now. Three and six. What what what did you pick up or glean as to why this team is three and six as opposed to the reverse? A lot of people expected Charles. Well you know. I had high hopes for the browns going into the season. I think I was like a Lotta people you know without the talent. You know that they were that they have accumulated onto this football team. You know I expected those guys come out come out better You know the first part of the season but I think you know what I learned from him from being there it. Is it really young man so really a young team and I think that right now they don't they don't necessarily know how to win as a group right now They did get get to win. I'm a big win for them On Sunday but I just thank collectively you know. They're they're struggling trying to figure out You know who team is you know what they have and how to utilize think. They're I think they're looking for leader on their team One of those young guys has to emerge as being the leader that they can all kind of rally behind and I think for me just being in short time to me I think myles Garrett can be that guy I know he's. He's not a very vocal guy. But what I got man in the short time is that you know I was there for a couple of hours and doing interviews and the whole nine didn't have practices over you know he s go get his size and they're you know period of time longer but then when it's time to do an interview that was he was done with his massage whatnot. She went right back to the way room. So here you got a young guy man. Dan whose twenty four years old he could be rushing out of the building to try to get home and do whatever but he was still in the weight room still working on his craft still grinding. So yeah I think if they're looking for you know that type of leader and the team of somebody to follow I think miles could be that guy. So that's kind of my vibe from from that that young Cleveland browns rounds team. Then what was it like. Hey hang with man I I mean I've instagram'd out a photograph and there you are with your inner set wine. A nice bottle read popped it. Open smoking cigars with with add Charles. That was awesome. It was epic we had. We had a great time man. We UH You know we we just got two guys man. That played the game for a long time. I had a lot of accomplishments but just still love to be around the game We just got to you know talk about you. Know Each Other's careers you know how how you see certain things and just Kinda have like you said. Smoke folks guard. He's big into cigars. I have to wind the intercept and so it was just a it. Was a fun vibe. We got to hang around young players young up incoming guys hang out at football game and just and just enjoy the moment you know we we we. We've been inside those lines for so long but to be able to just be at the Games on the sideline and watch the young guys. Go out there and do that thing but just a lot of fun for us. So what's going to happen in Ann Arbor when Michigan state rolls into town fresh off of having lost Illinois Charles. What are you What do you think's GonNa Happen this Saturday man we gotta send them send them home? I'm limping man. You know we we. You know. We're coming off the bye you know boat but we're coming off a win and then by so our guys should be fresh in ready to go I feel like our team is. Is You know starting to starting to play better. You know I think collectively you know a thing say is starting starting to play better from the way you started you know earlier in the year you know the team at a lot of fumbles lost fumbles But I think people are in agreement that kind of the second. Half of the Penn state game. You know things you know kinda started to click a little bit and then it rolled into the next week. So we're kind of looking at trying to keep that momentum going into this game against Michigan State. So I I. I'm looking forward to miskin going Niagara Dominating this game. Well you're not just not just not just beating Michigan state but dominating them well you're from the state of Ohio And this is like brother versus brother or is you know heart called it a little brother were versus little right. which created a big stank and then Dantonio came in and it's kind of flip that script as he was first taking the job? It's kind of been a little bit different even with that punt. That went awry and our bars. I go round with this. This rivalry got a good story about Michigan Michigan. State when you were there about what it meant or what what you heard about from Lloyd car at the time you got a good one to give a an example of what this rivalry means in that state Charles. Yeah you know I mean when you get there you know whenever you get to the university then you Kinda really figure out you know what it means. Of course I watched it on. TV as a kid. But when you're in the locker room you know you truly understand The dynamic of the game and I think when you look at Michigan Michigan State you have a lot of guys who were in state who were high schoolers who got recruited who to win school or the other and so a lot of those guys they really know each other. You know what I'm saying. They went to play summer leagues together and different things like that. So so it is a little different with those guys and so Going into that game. I remember my freshman year But my eighteen nineteen years old. I have these these little braids that I have in my hair and so you know I was young daughter. I was pretty tough Guy Cooler whatnot. But I'm going into this game. And they got Derek Mason. I think we'll see hobbit so they have some tough receivers Out there on the field and I remember we get into the game is tough game. It kind of goes down onto the wire but late in the game. I believe we were like a cover to among Derek Mason. He comes off the line or get a little jam. And then I think I think twenty banks quarterback Tony. Thanks those ball go up to intercept. The ball game is going to be over. I got it might have been a ball in the ball tipped off my hands. They're basically catches the ball. You know tackling getting down with the Games almost over and there's only there's only a few seconds left on the clock the very next play. They throw a touchdown on the other side of the field and Michigan. They ended up being this so I so so I'm I'm I'm pissed off because I let down all the guys on the team that game into I went home that night man for whatever reason I just cut off the braves cut all my hair off and just went and just cut it off and say you know what that game is over and done with the brave. This will never happen again again. And that was the end of that. So the anti restraint that was my freshman year he were stronger without the braids. Amazing strong dog without the I was going with that people need to hear. I guess I didn't need it. Well take it from me Charles. You don't need don't worry about it. I'm strong I'm I'm stronger without to work for Charles Like I told Joe off air. I'll say it here too. You're you're awesome at being a correspondent on this show thrills.

And it's basically sold out to the military industrial complex WHO's looking for cannon fodder and But you know before the deal for your statement luck shoot out. No I know and I I appreciate I appreciate the time again. We're up against the end of the hour here. I look look when we when we met capper. Nikki was a shy reserved. Kid that did not have much to say on social issues but we we all grow up and we all change and we all get. We all get interested in various subjects or enlightened. Or what's the phrase woke and I one thing I don't think capper nick is phony but ED gives a point of view that a lot of Americans have and that's why violate of people are wondering what's GonNa come out of this work out. What should come out of this workout in my mind? It is a job for Colin Kaepernick and conversation between Kapernick and teams. That need to hear from him about what. His stance figurative is going to be and also literal I guess. Let's go to Allen Pennsylvania you're here on the rich Eisen show. I got a couple of minutes Al Day. You're you're on the air sir. What's up now? Okay thanks thanks very much for taking my call I just wanted to make a comment also with the situation and I just I wanNA say number one. I have I've been a raiders fan for a good fifty years now so I know how the right organization working worked. I know how Davis worked and everything and I just want to say that if Al Davis has still been alive well before this Kapernick situation Had had occurred almost guarantee That Colin Kaepernick probably would have been raider back on and he'd probably still be in football. You guys that That Al Davis like you guys are. We're controversial and as long as they had talent He he would take them when nobody else wanted them and I believe that He would have been raider and at that time. The raiders were looking for a viable quarterback order back to. They really never had a quarterback until they drafted Derek Carr. Thanks for the call. Appreciate the AL died in In in the middle of of the two thousand eleven season and we all as we discussed earlier Kaepernick in two thousand twelve brought an NFC championship to the bay area. Salad had a front row. See for that. Look in one of the thing that cabinet would do that. Our life was throw deep. Baby Guy could throw in doubt about that. I mean again what that guy did in two thousand twelve with again the same offensive coordinator that Lamar Jackson has right now. That's why I mean. If you need a quarterback it's a it's a fit it's a fit eight four four. Two four rich is the number to dial here. The Rich Eisen Show Jayson stark will be joining us to what give us the latest on what is going on with the Astros cheating scandal and so much more with the stove. That's heating up our news. Update and more Monday night is podcast night. The Los Angeles Lakers. What's happening everybody? This is the official Lakers podcast on your host Mike trudell super pontivy flanked by Erin Lahr Sewell. You ready to go. I'm ready to go. The Lakers will be a top ten and defense team. That has two stars or in this case of Lebron ad can sometimes Kantha out. But I think they're both good candidates for MVP. I really like the way this team just feels to be around the IT'S A. It's a very a clear message. That's two stars in the ad and it's everybody else that's on Ford a relationship that is developing between those two off the end on the port. Their cohesiveness on the court. I I think in this case is a special case the two of them will enhance each other. As opposed to taking away from each other. Be sure rates.

Raiders Contingency Plans if Allegiant Stadium Construction is Halted, Best Draft Picks in Raiders History

Here today. On the PODCAST. I'm your host. Heidi saying and I want to remind everybody here that you will find daily. Podcast shows up until the NFL. Draft on April twenty third. We're also running wives shows so checkout VEGAS NATION DOT COM for all the information on our NFL draft shows. That will be airing on your view channel. Fourteen with Cox all right guys. Let's get into everything that we have here today because There is some more interesting reports coming out this one from Forbes. The raiders may have to look for a backup place to stay to have their home games. Maybe three or four games as just a contingency plan vinnie. What have you heard on this report? A couple of San Antonio is not happening so you can take them off. The list does not happening. If in a worst worst worst case scenario they did have to play some games. our Away from Las Vegas the first and foremost you to be talking about San Diego. So The raiders kind of went through this last year before signing their final lease up in Oakland. So all the usual suspects Would still be would be resurrected in that kind of scenario but we're a long way off from that sort of scenario happening even if there is some sort of a delay which nobody's anticipating at the moment but there are uncertain times going on so you have to account for For anything but if there is a delay first thing that they would do is probably just not play any preseason games at allegiance stadium. So there's four weeks potentially in all of this obviously is predicated on just the NFL itself starting on time which we don't know if that's going to happen or not but let's just say that it does so you could buy yourself for weeks in August in August two to catch up and if that's not sufficient time to catch up you can always manipulate the first part of the schedule. Maybe the raiders. Start Verse Three Games on the road. there's another month that you've bought back because regular season starts what September tenth or that weekend. So you have you can buy yourself two months pretty easily To avoid having to play anywhere else but allegiance stadium. Ican by that time In order to play a full game schedule of regular season Games at allegiance stadium. Something similar happen a few years ago in Los Angeles with the stadium Where the new soccer team plays in Los Angeles right next to the Coliseum and they had to start the first part of their season. All Road Games because completion of that stadium hadn't been fully fully put together but everything worked out. They're able to play their normal amount of games at home. There was just a delay You know because. His construction wasn't completed at the very start of the season so long story short. I think everyone's everyone's considering contingency plans. We all need to be doing that. Because it is uncertain. Times but the raiders. Not Playing in Las Vegas or playing anywhere else Butler Vegas for home. Games is a very very very slim possibility. Let's go with the thought that that very very very slim possibility happens. I had I wanted to explore the options that they would look at. Maybe here in town Sam Boyd. That's been something that's been talked about. And then also said that. It can't happen because Sam Boyd doesn't have the up to date type of technology that you would need to run an NFL game there. What do you think about that as a option? Or what other options do you think? The raiders could explore. If they had to do this will first of all. I'll say that Adam Hill and I will raise our hands to play the entire season in San Diego. But I don't think that's going to happen. You Know Sam Boyd. You're right. Heidi they talk last year before all this happened. Mark Davis Hinted Hey we might have the preseason game at Sam Boyd right away. People said even for preseason game you'd have to knock out a PRI- ten rows of the first Ten rows of concrete because of the TV angles. They need and how many cameras they have. And let's not forget about. Hello Mike Sanford in locker rooms. You might be able to get away with that for one game but at the NFL level. I don't think they'd even bring them in there. So but these are different times with the virus so all that stuff might go to waste because they just got to get games in and that stuff that was deemed important before might not be as important anymore if they just WanNa get these games in and start the season If we're looking around town I'd go with the number one stadium. Bishop Gorman over Sam Boyd much better locker rooms and probably much better weight room but you know. I don't think they want this to happen. Like many said and I think we'll have but it's important to have a plan B. We've already had two workers there test positive it's I don't know if the The two weeks passed. Since the second one's you don't really know someone is walking out there with it so it's mark album plan B but I think it's obviously their hope to continue construction and to have this often time. Binny's right you could put them on the road for the preseason for two three games on road for all of them and if you get one in Arizona and one close that's not that big a deal but I would think at this point the Sam Boyd would would not want to be a place they want to go. And also we're also you. Could you could build a temporary sorry contemporary Locker Room I think those things can happen if they really had to happen. I think two things on that real quick though first of all it would be great for the. Unlv and subway stadium people to be like. Oh really you WANNA stadium okay. Let's figure out something with Ardila because obviously there were not treated as they expected to be treated in this whole thing. Not that the Raiders. Were in the wrong contractually but It seems like the raiders. Got The better end of the deal there so I think that would be an interesting dynamic to say. Hey can we please play there No you can't and then the other one Ed yes San Diego's fun one fight island. How about take these games to fight island whether you building their thing? Let's let's make that happen but I think very excellent video might actually have some real information but I think fight island would be real fun. Adam Cleveland the column for tomorrow and I give out island pasta scrape. I would not. I would not be mad at any of that. But the one thing they also consider For Sam Boyd Stadium. Linda things in vans kind of you know. I didn't really realize this until you're the rams went through this getting aloha stadium up to speed for their preseason game against cowboys. One of the things that has to happen. You have to get the technology in order for a lot of different things. One of them is the coordination on replay So you have to get costs. A Lotta money actually. It's in the millions by To get stadiums up to speed for NFL standards for a lot of things beyond just the locker rooms and the stands and the camera angles And I can remember some coaches with the Rams replied. Old will disagree with the cowboys not to throw challenge flag. Who's going to do that anyway? In the pre season is like not. You can't do that. You have to have the ability to be able to do the replay and for that reason and many others exam. Boyd would be very very very distant possibility. Especially when you're talking about regular season games whereas San Diego you know it's a it's a four and a half hour drive for almost a five hour drive It would be perfect easy for fans to drive there from Las Vegas. Their southern California fans would have access to it. It just makes a whole lot of sense. I'm not sure the chargers would be happy about it but another thing to consider. Is that the charges. The rams are in the exact same position so it might not and they share a stadium so it might not be. You know allegiance stadium. We could be talking about this for the rams and chargers as well trying to make some contingency plans I would hate to be one of the schedule makers in the NFL. Having to kind of deal with this on top of everything else. That's going on with Kobe. Nineteen and how that's compromising. Maybe even sabotaging the schedule or part of a schedule right and just to follow up on that Vinnie with cope in nineteen worrying than people being kind of just very concerned about their workplace their environments. We're looking right now. Like at another huge project in Las Vegas. That at the end of March had the work halted after a worker tested positive SMS. Jackie Speier so. When you consider that how do you think the Raiders Operation Presses forward? If let's say like ED was alluding to if everybody isn't healthy on that site right now if somebody else has positive there. What do you think that the raiders would start to consider? Not The raiders. Excuse me but the construction firm and I'm sure the raiders would have some input as well but what would the ideal situation be if we start seeing another person at the site test positive? Would it be just a shot down at that point? I think there would be levels of shut down. Yari talking about a one hundred percent shutdown. Are we talking about slowing it down? Maybe maybe fifty percent And working in their favor you know all of that is that after the the the roof is completed and that's supposed to be completed in a couple of weeks You know the everything else is just in the interior. The bulk of work that remains would be in the anterior And I think he could probably manage that a little bit better Inside there are social distancing in meeting all the specs all the rules and regulations that are in place but also one other element to this Delivery I mean they've got supplies are coming in obviously on a daily basis. If anything were to compromise that then they can be running into a whole other issue if you can't get the supplies in two for the work that's needed That can be an issue that has been an issue yet. They don't anticipate it being that shoe. But again you have to plan for everything so if there is a delay because of this already deliveries you know somebody else tests positive and the governor decided to shut it down on again. It becomes a matter of how much time gets lost in it. How much can you make up during the preseason in the first part of the regular a like Adams idea fight island for if it does happen We can move everything to fight island and I like this one poster. I saw on social media by boss logic. Who comes up with these very creative posters and had doctor strange kind of Bringing everybody teleporting them onto the island. Keep PEOPLE SAFE SO. I think that would be a great plan on when we come back. We're going to bring you back in time. We're going to teleport you. Back to the raiders. Three as draft picks in Raider history.

Welcome back to Vegas nation everybody. I'm your host. Heidi Fang with our raiders writers Adam Hill and Vinnie Bonsignore and Review Journal sports columnist. Ed Grainy here we're going to start walking you through who we fit. Fake were the three best draft picks in Raider history. So of all time I mean there are a ton of picks that the raiders have had here that have delivered for this team. If you just kinda run through some names off the top like gene upshaw Marcus Allen. D'amato are Shell. There's a ton of guys here that have contributed to this team. That you could look at and say are the three best of all time but for me. I'll just get this thing started Nelson to Brown and I think it's a physician that the raiders would be looking to upgrade this year wide receiver nineteen eighty eight draft. Pick for the team. He was the all time leader in Games. Played for the raiders. He said a ton of franchise records with receptions receiving yards punt return yards users. Somebody I think that when I look back on the eighties and the raiders. I thought Tim Brown everything that he did with this team from eighty eight on was pretty amazing a nine time pro bowler and I just can remember kids in my grade just always walking around with his Jersey. I grew up in the bay area so I think he was. Just somebody that a Lotta people looked up to and eventually other players tried to emulate Adam. Who Do you have? What are we doing? Third-best or I pastor. We do an order here was I think it's just you know. Three best. Draft picks in raiders. History that you could think of At calling the three busters. Because I got the idea after seeing all these things like you can only keep three quarantine and so we'll just go. I guess it'll be four because it has all of our pigs here fair enough man like I always WanNa pick Charles Woodson. Because he's you know one of my favorite players ever being in Michigan fan growing up and obviously had a great career but he's a pretty high paying. I think you have to look further down the draft a little bit I'm GonNa go picking Ken Stabler in the Second Round Looking back a pretty good selection. He went on of course to win a league. Mvp The NFL passing touchdowns two times He was obviously one of the great names. Great faces a in franchise history news a second round pick which the same goes for how long to which is right up there so. I'm sure he might be on the minds of somebody else but I I think Ken Stabler in the second round is pretty good. Pick any taken while. You're one of the things real quick when I when I look at the raiders draft history. It's pretty spectacular The Pixel came up with that. It kinda shows that they were a little bit ahead of the curve on the whole scouting game and You Know Al Davis did surround himself with with tremendous football minds. It wasn't just him. He had a lot of help along the way. But for me you know especially when I was younger and and watching Kenny. Stabler who was a tremendous number two picks I can pick Or round pick but I used to always marvel. At how much time can you save will throw the ball? He would just sit back. They're kind of dancing around a little bed. You know. Sort of tiptoeing fee. Tipton his feet tiptoeing asleep and then boom you know. Destroy a secondary with the pinpoint. Pass the cliff branch or or something like that bullet the cough but as always wondering how the heck did this guy get so much time. Well there was a great offensive line in front of and I think the leader of that offensive line was not shot Who was a hall of Famer Multiple Pro Bowlers To Super Walls And so I always felt like he was the key to that offense of line. There are some other great players are at. Shell was there as well. But but gene show was upshot was the was the leader of one of the best offensive lines of all time. So for me on that would be the greatest fiction writer history and Ed who is greatest. Pick here of his driving through addresses or better ones but I'm GonNa go with the guy. Adam said for this reason because I actually think Charles Woodson played above the number four overall pick which is usually a pretty difficult thing to do your number four overall but Two guys picked out of them. Were Ryan Leaf and Andre Wadsworth. So big mistakes there obviously I know there is need back then with lief. We know what happened to him? But the thing that's impressive to me about Charles Woodson was. He started one hundred fifty one hundred fifty four games but was when he came back he still started off. Forty eight games. He played one of few super bowls. Nine time all pro. If there is such a thing as you can play better than your draft pick at number four I think Charles Woodson did it He's defensive player of the year so even as good as I think they thought he'd be. I think he was even better so I think that guy was unbelievable. Us heisman guy. Defensive Guy from Michigan I thought he was just awesome so I know his pick fourth overall but I think even played above that Charles Woodson's and interesting when because this past season I think you and I added an atom as well we were all up in Green Bay and Charles. Woodson's out there on the field during the Raider Green Bay game and it's so crazy. How many Raider fans actually made it out there as well to be able to. Kinda cheer them on E. was I think they're as part of a Green Bay celebration. But I definitely always with the raiders. In their hearts seasons he played in with the packers sandwiched in between his time with the raiders so very very When you look at that position and cornerback there is very few who played the positions like Woodson. I love that picks so I think that actually just kind of does make three in some sense because I think Adam you were thinking about Woodson as well in your top picks but you went for deeper in the draft so yeah this has been kind of interesting to revisit. Some of the best draft picks. And what we're GONNA do tomorrow as well is get back into this. Mock draft will give you a two point. Oh version of the mock draft once we kind of look over a picks that could come into the raiders hands in the twenty twenty nfl draft and we will again be doing live shows with that. So you WANNA keep it tuned here to Vegas nation and also check out right now. Cassie Soto. Who IS OUR VEGAS? Nation hosts has done a short video with hunter Renfro and Isaiah Johnson.

Welcome. This edition of the rich Eisen. Show. that would make me rich sitting in the host share right here. And I'm just fixing my cholera beginning to see how things work right here to start the show this this this shirts been tucked away at the NFL network for about five six months and I finally got it yesterday when I went to record tonight's episode of NFL. The, grind on epic's are Charles Woodson is part of that show going to be joining US coming up shortly. So if from adjusting a little bit because I haven't seen this shirt literally in six months but hey, it's better it's better it's it's it's at least a better look than one of my. Colleagues from the NFL one, hundred team show appeared on on. In public today, we'll hit the next three hours. Does it have the buttons on the side? Buttons on the side Yeah and the collar the collar needs to be a little ironed a little bit be could be on. You, know I'm just trying to get all together here. From and good. See You Chris. Brockman. Doing fine I'm doing I'm doing very well, look Every sport wants to have new young stars and have them bud in front of your very eyes you're nationally televised viewing is And and have have them potentially make those bones if you will against an all time? Great. Right. Yeah without question and the the association all bubbled up there in Orlando. For the duration of this twenty twenty restarted season. Appears to be having that at least for one night. Would Jamal Mari it's been several nights for this. I mean against Lebron. SOBRE. Anthony, Davis well, I guess that's two nights in a row. The first night was a first game was A. Not Competitive in terms of the final score second night Jamal Murray made a block with seconds to seemingly to protect the nuggets. Fleeting Lead Leading to an inbounds pass that Anthony Davis. Nail three point shot with no time left normally a backbreaker. But not this nuggets team they are resilient. We talked about it with Michaela Schifrin famed Colorado Athlete Olympian. Oh my gosh, we're showing this a great great still photograph. Friday of Jamal Maury jamming one down last night. One of. I think five times. In the last. Few moments of that game, the nuggets appeared to have all wrapped up with a twenty point lead right before the end of the third quarter, they started a fourth quarter with an eighteen point lead of one seventy one that was whittled down to one possession. Halfway through the quarter, because the Lakers defense showed up and showed up how they can win championships playoff. Rondo. was picking everybody's pockets and the transition game they went from nuggets ended of the floor to their under the floor with sometimes didn't even hit the floor. That's how fast the like the Lakers were moving from defense to offense and I thought. Normally, if a team does that a playoff game, they're coming back from an a comeback attempt to coming back from ten points down twelve points thus, they would take the lead they seemingly used all of their efforts. To get back in this game but to the nuggets credit resiliency within game three, forget about within series within game three. To set up, I think one of five times in the last. Few moments of the game that Jamal Murray got me off the couch and or audibly screaming from it. From that jam that I was telling you about from that jam, I was telling you about. To. The three pointer that he made. In the flow, the half court offense when it was a four point game. And the Lakers were teetering on the edge of not completing the comeback or about to survive the nuggets stopping things, he made a three-point shot to make it a seven point game. And then He. With mere seconds to go on the next possession. Made Beautiful Pass that I didn't think was possible. To put more points on the board for the nuggets. Then a three pointer. Of what Lillard Lane would you say like damn near from the logo The Jam. Shot where he just threw it down. Oh Man, I keep saying as I say this to you. Chiefs fans about mahomes. Say to Sea Hawks Fan About Russell Wilson to obviously you've enjoyed Brady for twenty years, Patriot Fan and. I Yeah I'm comparing Jamal I'm mean to Warriors Fan seeings Steph curry come out of Davidson and blossom. That's sure. Looks what Jamal Murray is right now and you could seize got the respective. NBA Twitter. Oh. Yeah. Dukes like a superstar you're talking about curry curry like shot where he threw the super high and the way he kind of does hands I. It was incredible last night and it's been three four weeks of this guy watching it appears to be. This is who he is. We'll see if he can obviously complete another comeback in this series against. Lebron, an Anthony Davis. It will help. If Jeremy Grant. Does again, what he did last night now at believe it. At one point I think see web and Reggie Miller had a chuckle over the fact that grant earned a double team at one point. Yes. Second half of that game they're like, did you see did he got a double? Did did they just double him and so? You can have your fun with it, and that was funny that that was their reaction to it. But if there's a third Hand, entering the Murray Yokich combination if there's a third. Maybe, that is what will overcome the James Davis combination for the Lakers. If there's a third man in for the nuggets of you know, you could see the third man and has been there death. But if there's an actual third man in putting the points and performance up like granted last night. Game is on and the nuggets feel they should be up to one. Argue. This is fun man that was fun. Last night I know Lakers fans didn't enjoy it but that was fun. And now we got to series both conference finals or to one. He trying to go up three one tonight celtics trying to even the series they last played Saturday. And those guys were gassed last night towards the end and an all the broadcast team was commenting on. That may Anthony Davis I mean they were all gassed. But it was it was they it all on the floor it was a hell of a competition and and Jamal Murray is blossoming into a superstar. He is the nuggets superstar and he's so easy to root for fun to root for. Fun To Watch. He is taking his team on the back on occasion and he did it last night against Lebron Anthony Davidson and the. And the Lakers was a total team effort to get all those points but it was Jamal Murray when it looks really bleak. Who put his foot down started making shots, making plays, and again when he went up and he jammed that ball down one ended I I did get off the couch and I screen like my kids came into say his dad was okay. That happened last night same Sarah's in the kitchen and she was like, Hey, you need to be quiet. 'cause cage. Sleep Oh stop yelling back. That's what we did you. Know. Great it was great. So. I was fun last night that was fun. Eight, four, four, zero, four riches a phone dial today. I do want to. Revisit. Something from yesterday. That I spoke about with you here on the quad cast and its Anthony, Lynn and his response. To reporters asking him about who quarterback is now, that Justin Herbert the sixth overall selection of the draft from this past year was pressed into service against the defending super bowl chance and the defending super bowl MVP, and the guy who has earned every penny we believe and will earn every penny rightfully of a half billion. Dollar contract in Patrick Mahomes and almost won the game. And we thought. Anthony Lynn response was a particularly harsh towards the. Young Man and Justin Herbert. Here's what he had to say yesterday. Ortiz wrong. I thought I thought what Justin deal was. I thought he came in and gave us a chance to win. But those a lot that you don't know there's a lot you know that we didn't get down with just feel yesterday he's a backup for reason, you know he's A rookie and there's a lot that he learn about. This game. Now our. Response in it's not the Royal Way. You felt the same way as most of us in in in. OPINIONATED WORLD Thought that was particularly harsh and I I even said he needs to watch it because. When a team draft somebody's sixth overall the writings on the wall kids going to get the job at some point in Toronto Taylor has not. Taken anybody but the twenty seventeen bills to the playoffs in his career. He was Hugh Jackson's Guy Until Baker Mayfield was pressed into service because of how the browns looked offensively who won a game what nine the? Beer companies were we're giving away free beer when the browns were actually GonNa win at the time and. So. And I thought the chargers should have moved in the direction of Cam Newton and this all I said yesterday that you got to watch it. Because it's particularly harsh. But and I took to mean when Anthony Lens it. There's some things you don't know about I thought he meant the all twenty two film because he backed it up by saying Herbert as backup for a reason. and His. Love of tyrod Taylor was maybe something that would take him down. Well here's potentially when Anthony Lynn meant when he said you don't know everything. Adam. Schefter tweeting out literally moments before we went on the air. It appears that the reason why Taylor was a last second scratch due to the chest pains that he suffered an adverse reaction was the. Conversation about Why he had chest pains an adverse reaction to. The. Shot looks like the adverse reaction was his lung being punctured Oh. I'm glad to put an accidentally cause that would be interesting if the team doctor did not. By accident puncture tyrod Taylor's long, right And Adam following up that tweet by reporting. That Herbert is the starter indefinitely now that tyrod Taylor will be out because of all that. Indefinite link. So Herbert's GonNa get the GIG for the chargers here. And he's going to get the GIG for the chargers here. Against Carolina and then at Tampa at New Orleans. Indefinitely, let's just call it a month home for the jets at Miami. So I I do want I guess. In a way. Apologize. Because I understand why a coach would want to not throw his medical staff onto the bus. For Guy who he truly wants to give a chance to and who he believes in. Did He after say Herbert's backup for a reason. I don't think so. and He needs to coach this young guy up maybe that's what he's doing behind the scenes. No quarterback should clearly lose his job because. His long was accidentally punctured by his. I guess. Own Staff. Also shows you too about how quickly things can happen in the NFL. Just one weekend against Cincinnati. Bengals he needs a shot there was no contact. I mean literally the last time he got shot. He needed he needed a shot before a week two game and a punctured, his lung and Justin Herbert does have an opportunity i. Know. The charges are hoping Taylor would be a start Sunday according to Schefter, but doctors are against it so he's out indefinitely. CRACKED RIBS is why he received the painkilling injection according to Schefter. Also, just shows you. We don't know what type of pain. No, I know again, my my reaction to it yesterday was to basically say the kid played his heart out. He spilled his guts out just in Herbert figuratively and the almost beat at the defending Super Bowl, champs at home and for him to come out and say you know he's a backup for a reason. Only serves to open him up. To a potential. Loggerheads with management who clearly drafted Herbert. For a reason. In the same way, you say that he's a backup for reason you know he's not you could say he's not ready for a reason. It but you know Anthony Lynn perhaps was working out of clear. Ir over the situation. Wanting to give tyrod Taylor the the opportunity to Rod Taylor. Getting. Ready for that opportunity against the defending world. Champs And he can't because of all that. Wow. Not. So. That's bears. Checking out. 'cause Herbert's going to get an opportunity and somebody's shouldn't lose their job due to injury. We know it does happen and certainly someone shouldn't lose. An I clearly feel for the team doctor who? Must be feeling it right now. But it's out there. Just in Herbert, the starter. And I kind of. Disgusted yesterday to with with with all of you. I mean I've been at this for a while. Eighteen NFL seasons with fell network and about seven. On sportscenter before all, that don't recall the last top drafted rookie getting the opportunity to start last second before the game. Because the veteran that the coach adores and wants to place his team and faith into. Can't go because his lung got punctured by his own team doctor. And that's the opportunity. The Justin Herbert gets in the NFL. Wild again, twenty twenty. Wild. and. There's two tomorrow night on NFL network. Great smacktalk between the two starting quarterbacks in that one great poll question involving pop culture that we're going to ask you before we ask you to kyle brand.

Guess in this if you will burrito wrapped by. Florio. Florio Berea Florio Burrito. Pretty. Good. That's not a bad fantasy team name, right? Okay we got a great poll question that we're GONNA reveal shortly, eight, four, four, two full rich is the number to dial This man gave me so much pleasure when I watched him for my Alma Mater go crush it, and then in in his decade a half in the national football league was awesome to watch him grow into a grown ass man that has earned him the right to be called a finalist for the twenty twenty one pro football hall of fame class. Interestingly enough. He might go into the hall of fame the man who he beat out for the Heisman ain't now. peyton manning. Be. Interesting. He's Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show. How are you Charles? I'm doing fantastic. How are you doing if I told you back in the day when you won the heisman from Peyton by told that Charles Woodson, that the two of you would be finalised. So the pro football hall of fame together in the same class of twenty twenty one to said what to me Charles Woodson. Would have said I believe you Kind of confidence that I have. Yes. Indeed and and I believe he probably he probably had the same company. So I would say, you know what? Ridge I believe. You Man we're going to go into all together one day you Dan and it's IT'S A. What did what did you think of when you heard that news about being finalists in your first time to possibly be enshrined? You know a rich man and. You know especially and I I would imagine for all the players who go through this process to see the list come out and see your name on that list all the other great players that have gone gone through the League and then the see your name as a nominee. For the hall of fame but one and lets me know that man five years has gone by pretty fast. From the last time that I was able to suit up but then also man you look back over your career and what you were able to accomplish as a player at the highest level I think is the ultimate respect for any player just just to have that nomination to be honest. So I'm very blessed man I had a unbelievable career play with a lot of great players, great coaches, and you know how great would that be you know to get into all the things? Did you ever overlap with Tylenol at Michigan or no? He he proceeded He left early man I went up there on the recruiting visited and got the meeting one time before he left. But tie was out of their man he was on the bigger bigger and better things. Okay. Then the next time you saw him when he he hopped on the bus after the Tuck rule game, he started he started giving you crap for not saying about him right? Charles that happened. Know that was big time I saw a man I wanted to take him down the street for that. Yeah, that's that's that's my boy though man so you know it'd be great to man you know I was at the hall of fame when he went in and that was a special moment you know to be there one of my good friends man and you know sit that moment with him and his family, and you know how great would it be to have two Michigan Wolverines to corners Go into the hall of fame and you know block it down the hall of fame. And of course they'll be one at quarterback coming up very shortly and I I WanNa, put a pin in the conversation with Tom Brady with you for a moment But because I want to get to Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show your visit to the new home of the Las Vegas Raiders, you were there on. Monday night. As part of your work with the show that is host, which is always thrilling to see your name on the list of being correspondent for NFL the grind, which is the NFL films produced show every Wednesday night tonight on epochs at nine eastern time that I host looking back at a couple of games as well as the entire week while flashing forward to the next week and you were at the Monday neider in Vegas what was that like Charles Walk me through your night there. Yeah. You know it was a lot of anticipation for the game one because it's a big match up, you know Oakland Raiders is the first game. In the death star that is allegiance stadium? Going against the New Orleans saints who I know you know people have. Their early takes to be a contender late in the season. So it's a big match up, but to have that first game in Vegas where nobody I- nobody that you would talk to whatever say you're talking about me if you told me years ago when I being hall of fame well, asked me to say question. Did I think ever be football in in Las Vegas and to that question? I would have said No. But here we are you know in Las Vegas Monday, night football and. To tell you how how big it isn't it? Especially, this new fans aren't allowed in the stadium. But saying still showed up in Las Vegas just to be there just because the game was being played in locating. So really that. Yeah. So that so that goes to show you people want to know about Raider fans and were they support the raiders that were Raider fans all over Las Vegas just to be in town for the game. They watch the game you know wherever they were at but they were there there was a two hour wait in line to get inside Raider image you know the day before. Fans were ready and in anticipating football in Las Vegas Oh. The energy was there as far as being in the stadium. The stadium is beautiful. You know they pay a lot of attention to detail Mark Davis was Very. Adamant about you know having a local presence in the stadium. So there's there's local artwork in there from people that are from Las, Vegas and then there's You restaurants as far as influence from Oakland bringing some of that Oakland anthem closer to the stadium paying homage to the old players I took a video of some of the the raiders, the legend, the hall of famers. Beautiful display of their numbers and their induction year Of course, the torch is enormous and what a special night to have you know Mark Davis is mother sitting in front of that torch lighting the torch for the first game in Las Vegas. So. I mean it was it was special A to be there. You know for one to be there and to me, I felt like I was Kinda representing the fan. And so I tried to take as many videos. I could give them a little inside. To stadium gave him a video of of the warm up as if they were in the stadium and stadium, they're watching the team up. So it was it was great man great night and a great game you're sure was and I saw I saw those videos on your instagram at Charles Woodson. So let's get to that game because to me. Couple things leaped out and I mentioned it yesterday they May. At, putting in Gruden's hands at, you got a monster a tight end. You got a monster run back. You gotTa Monster Defensive End and you got a monster at safety. And there's there's monsters all over the field, and if this quarterback can be decisive and mistake free. This team's going to be a difficult. To deal with Charles what do you make of that assessment of the raiders having seen them? Yeah. I. Think you're right on a thank. You know grew out together have you know accumulated. Some good young talent in. Young talented guys who are who are hungry you know been you know this was grew words is that he has guys on the team that really love football. And You know that's important to have that feeling about your guys But when you talk about, you know for for quarterback, you know this is this is universal. You know your best friend is a is a is a good tight end and good running back. And boy does he have that Dan Waller? He was virtually unstoppable to hold night ends up with twelve catches over one hundred yards. But you can see his athleticism is too. So noticeable on the field you know the way he can catch turn size of the defender jump in and out of tackles He's a big guy of course they run through tackles with the Sp. so it doesn't matter who you put on a you know he can have success. Zageb I mean he's tough man he built like a tank. And one interesting thing that I you know I was talking to Malcolm Jenkins and and You know I said, Hey, you know you guys have running back. You held Josh Jacobs under hundred yards and that's usually a staple for defense. That's what you hang your hat on and stopping the run and you know his his thing was yeah we we stopped and getting a hundred yards but it wasn't about that. It was the physicality you know the physicality offense of line and then also the physical illness of Josh Jacob. So you know they were, I, think able to impose their will a little bit. On the Run Game and then I'm not. You know what goes off to. A young rookie wide receivers because those guys are stepping into a situation where you know there's there's really no veterans out there on the field right now to you know. Well there's a few but not the kind of guys you would think that that mentors young guys and they got to step in and start you know Edwards in rugs those guys are stars on the team. for franchise that just moved over to Vegas and that's A. That's a pretty, pretty hefty low for those guys to carry and they did it I think from. Divas the standpoint you talk about the safety Abram man, he's a heat-seeking missile. Anything, moving and he plays with high. Energy. Research. I was telling yeah so I think yes I think the only thing they. Say Man is tackling I. Think was an issue. Kamara he pretty much had his way all day for the most part you know he was hard to handle so that they tackling in angles and those sorts of things from a defense standpoint is what they'll have to work on and next up for them as New England I'm sure you saw what cam looked like on Sunday night football. What do you think cam was sitting at home for as long as you sitting at Home Charles What do you think about that subject? That's that's that's an interesting question man The only thing I would say maybe people thought that he was too too big a personality for the locker room. You know that's the only thing I can say because it'd be watched his career. There's nothing about his career that will need you to say he was in decline of course, he had you know some injuries that he had to deal with shoulder I believe in in some other injuries. But when you watch this guy at his best, you watch him healthy you know one the best quarterbacks in the NFL and I think he's in the right place because I think would bill belichick you know he he don't mind bringing in you know personality know he he brought in. You know a Randy Moss You know Gronkowski's about personality he coach great players like Lawrence Taylor. So he he doesn't have a problem break in guys with big personality He knows how to get the best out of you. So I think somebody's team just missed out on Cam because they felt like his personality was too big and maybe he would lead some players in the wrong direction. But I know there's some team you know probably sitting back right now taking themselves maybe we over. Think 'cause. 'cause Twenty fifteen cam has shown up in New England in two thousand and twenty, and if the Patriots can just keep on keep on in the first year without Tom Brady any team that let camp sit at home when they could have used him has nobody to blame except the to use parcels phrase man in the mirror you know that's it. That's exactly right. You know when they're. Marching into the playoffs and those teams was sitting by. Whoever they brought in. The franchise, you'll have to eat it. I am making people eat it. That's for sure Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show. Let's return back to that Monday night or you're at what did you see when you watch drew brees play On. Monday night. Charles. I thought that you know there's there's really just to me one plate that that really stoked stuck out to me know people have been talking about how he doesn't look the same but to me it was it was the intersection and I remember watching play and when he let it, go myself who was he throwing throwing too because you're there wasn't there really wasn't a saint in the vicinity. Of course there was you know receiver probably five or six yards behind the linebacker that caught the interception. But That didn't seem like you know ventures drew brees to me. You know bad bad decision That guy was clear as day in the throwing passed and he threw the ball right to them. And you know, I, just thought to myself how that doesn't look very. You know drew brees you know I thought that they tried to They had they ran a Lotta crossing routes things that right in front of you know I didn't see them push the ball down the field a whole lot. and I thought they tried to you know keep the ball on the ground for the most part early Kamara. But when the raiders started to go on their their their in running the clock out and going down in scorn. touchdowns then they had to try to air it out a little bit and then you know you Kinda came alive late. You know when the game was, you know Kinda decided but to me, I, think that one play interception was was not very Drew Brees to me. Well, I, mean a part of the conversation again I guess I shouldn't quote twitter because twitter thinks breezes done But that the interception by Nicholas Morrow occurred because he was camouflaged in the raiders logo in the of the field that he was wearing the same uniform color scheme as the paint on the field and that breeze might not have seen him standing there literally because he's camouflaged even though as you point out, the guy was sitting there playing is day. But breeze after the game was talking about you know essentially that he runs the offense the way supposed to essentially with what the defense was giving him. You saw two safeties back quite a bit So I guess put it all together. Where do you stand on the subject of breeze quote unquote being done? But did you say? Your eyeballs. Why can't I can't I can't I can't I can't ever put it on one game rich That's one game where you know he had off night every player has of night A few years back when when Brady had an off night against the Kansas City chiefs everybody was writing them through a couple of pigs went to the touchdown then I think they went on to win the Super Bowl that year and he's still playing football now. So I'm not gonNA write him off now you know the thing about the game of football you know wants to wants the decline start you know it really start to expose you. So let's let's take things you know two three weeks out and see how drew brees is plan but I I'm not gonNA sit here. For one game in one night. And say that you know he's he's he's done done Charles I I got I. got to see more that Charles Woodson here on the rich Eisen show and breeze. So know breezes GONNA use all that conversation. To his advantage in his next game, and then let's just see if the other connect game also got a chip on his shoulder hold on a second. Oh Yeah. It's Aaron Rodgers by the way I just put my glasses on. It's just a prophecy of my notes even though I, didn't have it written down. That was just a prop. Have you spoken Aaron Rodgers Lately Charles? It'd be spoken him 'cause we're talking to him Friday on the show. Is Not not having a you know just just briefly you know out at in Tahoe Century. talked to him since the season started well, the narrative is he's pissed off about what happened with the draft and you know he's been really chill and cool about it. He's been Arielle a ex about it You know when he's been zooming in talking publicly. But that deep down he's taking it out on the rest of the league to show Green Bay That he's got a lot of years left what do you think of that subject matter? Charles. Why don't I don't think. Aaron has to take it out on anybody errands a good cuase a he's a great quarterback. So he he's GonNa play well, you know regardless. as far as the packers taking The quarterback I don't feel like Aaron. Rodgers? was ever threatened that anybody could come take his job. So I don't think he's truly mad about that. I would imagine that he's more mad that you know you. You always talk about you know. Green Bay and and or can have quarterbacks like Aaron Rodgers and surrounding him with with the with the top talent and you know being that there was a couple of receivers. That maybe they could have taken. You know bringing him another weapon on that team. I think that probably bothered more than them drafted a quarterback but of course, you know take a quarterback. It kind of brings up the same situation he was in when he got drives farmers there. So you you automatically know, okay, th, they brought a young guy in you know I'm kinda getting towards the end. So there is a sense of urgency you know for Aaron Rodgers is like. Okay I I got a few years left I. GotTa I. GotTa. Get back to the Super Bowl. I think that's that's the main thing that's on his mind and not being about him. You know taking that taking it out on everybody because packers drafted quarterback then last one, Forty Charles you're right there near the Carter and Tampa. In Florida. How long do you think it's going to take to? We see Brady, feel totally comfortable with everybody around him and start. Winning Football Games in the manner that we're used to seeing him when football games or you think that might not come at all what your thoughts on that subject. Yeah not yeah, I think he. is No different than brees as far as seeing where he's at the right in his career I think the same with Brady you get the thing a couple of weeks you know this is sort of like you know going through preseason having preseason games. This is first time with the team. I thought the first week against the same thing. It'd be west of opening drive when he went down and Joe to bro Jobs Ball downfield wind with the quarterback sneak you know you know he's still got it. Now during the rest of the game I felt like there was some timing. There was a miscommunication with him receivers and I think all all of that comes with game situations. So I think a couple of more weeks of him working with Evans and got one's coming back I believe seeing how they can work. In OJ, Howard. Into, the game plan I think we'll start to see things click a little bit more I. Think we'll see a little bit more that vintage Brady before we'll see the end of Brady. Charles I.

Dee Williams playing him and James Caan playing Brian Picolo. And interestingly, enough where we're showing a still photograph of him running. The brick wall behind him with the ivy that's Wrigley Field. Wrigley Field. That's where he scored those six touchdowns still in NFL client orbit home of the bears they've played in Wrigley field much longer than they have ever in in soldier field. Just in terms of the history of the Chicago bears. Awning, rest in peace to gale Sayers and BRIANCON very rarely mentions that quote unquote sports movie. To go one. I know, right. Rest in peace gale sayers. Eight four four zero, four rich number down and sports movie is part of our poll question today Chris I I really Today's an anniversary date of two. Movies that are remote drop films for people that are out there in the rich Eisen, show audience totally I. Expect this poll to be pretty split their alker day. Okay. When you talk about re washable movies like we do all the time. It's tough to get better than these two. Both released today one in one, thousand, nine, hundred, four, Shawshank redemption released in nineteen ninety four remember the titans today in Nineteen in two thousand and twenty year anniversary twenty year anniversary of remember the one year anniversary. Twenty six for Shawshank. What's the more watchable movie? Shashank remember the Titans Oh dude. This has got to be a particular quandary for you. Right this is tough. I actually can't decide right now I think it depends like what hour of the day you get me like right now because we're talking about football, I want to say remember the titans and I was watching a bunch of clips earlier but way this afternoon and might be Shawshank I don't know. But right now I room Shawshank your favorite movie of all time though. It's either like we give you grief about you've got. As you said that meant a lot 'cause you're homesick and your mom and and you're also you know that soft side and that New England veneer that that that that military rat kid that you are it's very difficult for you to admit even though you're a softy inside act because. You Love Your because you love your mommy. About my favorite movie, you're trying to trigger me. Actually think when I really think about it. Yes. caddyshack might be my favorite. Really. Okay I WANNA laugh. Twenty one your favorite drama. Fees or your favorite draw. These are both dramatic films Shashank. You've got Denzel Denzel. Freeman doing denzel things like Denzel being himself in a movie as a football coach it doesn't get any better. That's gotTa Kademi awards all over the place. Young Ryan. Gosling football I played quarterback in high school gosling. which by the way you can use to describe him right now anyway to. It's not like Ryan Gosling as a senior citizen don't. Early on Gosling. I think if you asked me right now I'm going to say remember the titans. Wow. I would never have guessed that. I don't know. which is the most rewatch -able movie tough. And then there's the fact that you know Shawshank is a Stephen King. Short story turned. His friend Frank darabont uncritical. Another. Short story. That Stephen King did but under a pseudonym, the running man. That's another we can which we might have to do in the next hour as well. Branson I mean who better to ask. than he on all that and Jeff Daniels do we ask Jeff Daniels this question too I think. So why not what do you think's age most remote drop? Film. That, he's been in. Dumb and dumber. Mean this man's an award winner. And it's dumb and dumber. Just go man. He's diehard Lions Fan. By the way, feel for that guy. So, that's how we're rolling here. One hour on the rich Eisen show when we come back amazing week three. NFL, schedule filled with must haves filled with Massey's, and then your phone calls eight, four, four, two, four, rich. I gotta be honest with you a little surprised. How did how did our conversation? About that old movies don't mean anything to you how did that go over and did the two thousand, one space odyssey conversation go over in your household? We didn't have it actually. You didn't because you too busy. Well, she was actually gone cage they went to the beach and I had a doctor's appointment. So I didn't see them. Back was bedtime, and then we're too tired to and then your and then the game was on citing and did you watch it live or pause it live? Bedtime likes wait first quarter. So that's doesn't matter in the. NBA. So I was able to Oh, just Kinda cruise right through it doesn't matter in the NBA? It really does. Even when the Nuggets Twenty I was like this twenty point lead means nothing. The Lakers are going to make it clear. I was surprised that the Lakers did the. 'cause the nuggets. are well coached and there's too many scores everywhere for them to not get shot off. It just seems. Lakers. Lakers clamped down for a whole half a quarter I know. I kinda thought they were going to wipe out to win. It got the three points as. Would've bummer. I Want I wanNA series we've got you. Got One. Kyle Brandt boy joining us next hour.

All right. It's our day here in Atlanta in the Honda studios is our last day of on the spot coverage of Super Bowl fifty three here on the rich Eisen show. Thank you for joining us. We've got a great show for you. Once again, the NBA which started our week with a big piece of business with Anthony Davis demanding trade from the pelicans, there's an actual trade in the NBA involving Kristaps Porzingis and the Knicks we will get to that on the show. But obviously, we've got a heck of a guest list that we're particularly excited about to bring to you, including the man to my left. The pro football hall of Famer Heisman Trophy winner. Two time SuperBowl champion and MVP of Super Bowl. Six from the Dallas Cowboys care of ISIS, Roger Staubach good to see you, sir. Good to see that's in a park. Got all excited recover or wait a minute. Mike, can you can you give me the proper music to set up? What I please go ahead and hit it. It's a little better this way. Is a pro football hall of favor and Heisman Trophy winner. Two times Super Bowl champion and MVP of Super Bowl six care of vices. Roger starbuck. I don't see any cowboy jerseys over there. I know there would have been I guess if the Cowboys had made it, you know, for sure there definitely would have been, but they're Cowboys fans everywhere. And obviously, you're your major reason why having built the Cowboys up from the ground floor back in the day when they first were called America's team now that you're here it's Super Bowl fifty three asking the MVP of Super Bowl six. I mean, what was it like back in the day at the Super Bowl nothing? Like what we're seeing today rela Super Bowls of just continue to grow every year. I I was still in the navy when the Cowboys were they lost to Green Bay in the ice bowl. And I think the Super Bowl started back then Packers won two years in a row and in then when I joined the the the Cowboys we were in the seventies. We were in the hunt all the time, and we were in five Super Bowls. We won. Two of them. And we lost to the Steelers a couple of times and the other one I didn't get chance to play and I was on the bench. But that was the guest Baltimore. So it's it's it's hard to believe how. How it's grown to where it is today. Even back, then it was it was a big deal. But today, it's it's it's all over the place. It's much much more. I think TV the TV ratings everything is just much more bigger on everybody's looking forward to the Super Bowl. So was it was there like a big media hype presence there was and we we get their week earlier and we'd have media day. And it was, you know, grabs I I want to Super Bowl thirteen. So that's quite a while ago. But it's still was it was those are, you know, there's a big deal. Do you? Remember who their halftime active Super Bowl Super Bowl six the halftime in two lane where you played it. Do you remember or you don't know is that you know, it was definitely not me. I was I was in the locker room. I it was it was Ella Fitzgerald, all Channing Al hurt is that right and the US Marine Corps drill team in a salute to Louis Armstrong. Oh, wow. Yeah. Yeah. A little bit different now. Yeah. I'd like to I'd like New Orleans lot. We won twice in New Orleans and we lost in Miami. So to the Steelers, but we want a New Orleans. So I have a you have your favorite places that you remember in New Orleans was was soup after we won in Super Bowl six when we beat Miami. My is shortly before my mother passed away and she really had a blast at the Super Bowl. I can still we the two of us were behind somebody on a motorcycle driving around New Orleans. And she was I could not believe he got on the motorcycle. He was so happy that we won the Super Bowl, and I got the MVP because Duane Thomas wouldn't talk to anybody. So what do you mean? Well, he had a great game. We we we had I had a good game. And Dwayne ran ball. Very well our offense Calvin hill, Duane Thomas. But Dwayne that he was a great player, but he just wouldn't. Talk to the media and everything I think if he did he would have he would have got the vote for MVP's now when you mention Calvin hill, I've not asked you this question because we've heard about it from Grant Hill is it true. You named grant L suggestion the name to Calvin. Yeah. They were having a hard time. He and Janet we're just going crazy about a name. And and so they were Callans dad was grant and or Henry, and so they were going back and forth. And I said, well, just naming grant Henry hill, and that way you get everything in there and that was after two days. So finally, he was named grant Henry hill. So I was responsible. I had. Yeah. That's unbelievable. Yeah. He wasn't my son. But I mean, if you named anybody else person you've helped name Roger. Well, our five kids. Okay. Other than your own are fifteen grandkids. I haven't helped the knows on our kids. I actually helped Landry any different Super Bowl week. Yes. He was. He was he I always he was intense. He was he was an engineer. You know, he had goals outstanding reasonable believable Chievo they were measured. And he was an engineer, and he his preparation was his strength. That's why we want for twenty years in a row, we were well prepared. But on the field things had to happen. You know, he allowed me to run. He hated me running the beginning in eve my last year with the team, we're watching film, and he said Roger you gotta stop that running. I said we'll coach I'll be retired pretty soon. Okay. That so so so he put up with that. But he he he believed in you drop back you read your keys in you throw the football. That's exactly how Brady does. It was fantastic at what he does. But he he really was in preparation. He was he just was a great coach as far as how prepared that was his that was his his his way of things and in mine is a little different. I just wanted to go out and win and run and do things, and we got along really well because he knew I wanted to win and the players believed in me, and so he put up actually put up with me those first years, I thought he was going to trade me, and but we won the Super Bowl and seventy one and that that helped the law felt you. Thought Roger starbuck you thought Tom Landry was gonna treat. Well, I really did. Yeah. I thought he I I was not I wasn't a pocket destroyed pocket passer. But he he really he was creative. We put the shotgun in and seventy five because he knew I could run a little bit. We ran from the shotgun a few times. But we also had it in. No one else. Add the shotgun. Isn't that amazing now? Now, you see the shotgun on everybody on on fourth and inches people. Go on a shotgun. But he was creative. And he we had motioned drew Pearson was in motion all the time what the defensive backs used to get up on top of the wide receivers. And just, you know, just hit them off the line of scrimmage and keep running with them that way. So he put one in motion. What you're legally you could have one emotion. So he couldn't get hit off the line of scrimmage. So that became that was we're the only team with the head anybody emotion to and so coach Landry was really creative. He was really good X. No coach and the emotion side of it. What goes on? On the field and everything else was taken over by the LeRoy Jordan's and the Bob Lillis, and you know, and hopefully myself on offense Schorr, absolutely. And then it's interesting. You mentioned how you were in the navy during the ice bowl. And obviously an MVP of Super Bowl six champion a second time less than a decade later. The fact that we're seeing Brady in his ninth Super Bowl. You're the perfect person. Ask that you've seen a lot you played against many people say he's the undisputed greatest of all time. What do you think? Well what? One of the things really hard to predict obviously is draft on quarterback main. There's some that are obvious and Troy Aikman with Alex was one of the best drafts ever. And but they they knew that right away. But Brady was taken in the six round. And they they obviously didn't understand his strengths or he would have been drafted sooner in his strengths or he's got. He's got a very good arm. But he he he gets rid of the ball quickly. He sees what's going on. And he evidently understands what's going on more than most quarterbacks because he gets gets rid of that ball quickly. It's hard to it's hard to sack him. And he's not he doesn't Ronnie doesn't really by time running around. But he does it with his mind and in reading the keys on defense. He can tell one its own man to man, and he knows that the receivers no one to hook up on a on zone. And and, you know, make the break on a man to man, and he he gets rid of the ball and he picks out that receiver. Whether it's gronk or it'll men who. It is is that again, he yes, he. He's a may he's he's really the best at being able to get rid of that ball in knowing what's going on there, then and he's got and he's a good athlete. He's stays in great shape. Yeah. I mean, you you play to your thirty seven. I mean, this man's a forty one year old now he's never known what it's like to be a forty year old not finishing up in the Super Bowl. He was a forty year old last year. And he's an forty one year old right now, it's forty one you if you if you stay in shape, your, you know, I I have some concussion issues. I I was just turning thirty eight and and so I played eleven years in I was told by Dr Fred Plum, Cornell Medical school that I should the next one could be the real problem in your life. You've had too many of them. So I retired then, but I was still playing physically at a very good level then because I stayed in shape. And and that's what Brady it's it's you know, he they talk about a bad game because he's forty one years old. Well, he had a bad game when he was thirty. So he still is playing great football. So it his age, and he just needs a not listen to people to tell him. How old he is just get out there and keep doing what he's doing? Well in terms of concussions. We'll get to the vices helmet in a second. But I do want ask you Roger Staubach about the current state of the Cowboys you mentioned how Aikman was a a surefire quarterback draft pick. But he was the first overall pick. You mentioned we're Brady was in the six what about a fourth round draft choice in Daklak. You believe he's a future. Dallas. I think Dak is going to be in continue to be a quarterback this getting better every year. I think he's a very good quarterback. And the thing about that is that he he truly has confidence in himself and he transferred transfers that confidence to his teammates. His teammates really believe in everything that you hear you. When I interviewed by players. They love him. They know that it ends come through in the fourth quarter. He never quits never blames anybody else. So he's a leader in you know, for every. Passy throws mean everybody. They're they're usually early in the game. He's he's he's he's he's pretty well in the game. And he's got a good winning record. So I I'm I'm disappointed in the the question marks on on back in his his strength. And I think is future's going to be very good. I think I think he's he'll be the Dallas quarterback for a number of years. Are you surprised that Jason Garrett is gonna have to coach without an a contract extension next year? I, you know, I've someone mentioned that I'm I'm thankful. Jason. I hope went in there and said, hey, listen, I'm going to we're gonna we're gonna we're gonna go to the Super Bowl next year. So don't worry about my contract. I don't need extended contract roar. But so he needs to have good your next year. And I I hope Jason does because I like Jason. And he's done some good things in Dallas. But this'll be a big year for the whole team the whole team. It's a good football team. So this coming year. Going to be a big year. And it's going to be big year for Jason's for us. As future is a with Alice. Probably, you know, Jerry, right? I mean, Jerry is essentially kind of putting everyone on notice. He knows exactly what he's doing. I think he real. I think he kind of likes that in a way. Don't you think? Well, I I'm not. But Jerry is he's a competitor. He wants to win. And he, but he is he is loyal to players. The one thing about the Jones family. They're very generous people. They do a lot in the community. They they care about other people, and in in I think Jerry cares about Jason wants the handle that the way is should handle things. But you also have to make some tough decisions. And yet I think he believes Jason can get things turned around next year. Yeah. Now, do you think the right decision was made with Scotland hand bringing in a twenty nine year old coordinator now and killing more. Well, I wish I was I wish I was they are because I don't understand. Th the inner workings of some of the coaches, I I've heard more on just great things about him. What have smart giddy is a good guy? And I go back and tonight, I'm having dinner with Dan Reeves, and Dan Reeves was fantastic. He was a player for us. Then he became the backfield coach quarterback coach, they certainly know him here. And then he really helped helped me a lot. He did a great job and in Denver, obviously, the Super Bowls. They went to and then he was here in Atlanta. But so Dan, Dan, really meant meant a whole lot to me is a is a coach, and so that's very important position. And evidently more is gonna be the one to take over on to really help that get to the next next level. Also brought back year on the rich Eisen show before let you go. We've got the vices helmet right here. Russell Wilson Patrick Mahomes. Doug, Baldwin golden Tate over one hundred NFL players wearing it since it launched last year. What are you? What do you say about this helmet that actually helps with what caused you? And obviously Troy Aikman. It seems to retire. It's great helmet. I mean, it's it's the NFL is recognized in a in a very positive way. That's why you're you're seeing you know, it's a lot of colleges now in high schools, and I wear it all the time with our fifteen grandkids. I got. So it's it's it's just it's a great helm. I made that the helmet the helmet isn't going to be the total answer concussions. But it's going to be helped my first helmet was a leather helmet in highschool. We it'd be lated Notre Dame and Notre Dame had leather helmets at that time. So I had my first concussion. My leather helmet had a couple with not a great helmet. It navy for while then they build a special helmet for me where they patted it. And so when I was with Alice, so this helmet is is is really try to try to prevent the brain from getting knocked around little bit. Well, I mean your post playing career has been a model for so many other players have you had any effects at all you have facts of concussion after playing the game Roger from time to time. No, George, I I haven't had well done. I it. It's that's not funny anymore. I don't think. But no. I know I'm I've I've knock on wood. I'm feel fine. I mean, sometimes I my wife says I might forget something that I shouldn't forget. But usually, I do it in tension Lii. Why don't wanna give up? Home. Roger, I don't want to go. Everything's being investigated. Now. The and there's a lot of in teammates if have very severe dementia. So there's there's probably something to sport. I'd like to see young kids played all everybody played touch football for while until they get older older than the naked play. And some kids are playing touch football. But it's hard if you're just playing touch, then all of a sudden you get in highschool and somebody else that's been playing been hidden. So so it it's it it. It's been investigated. And I think they're trying to do more with the rules with with the equipment. But the thing is we'll get better. Understood when it's not just players that have died that they they do the testing. So it it's a serious issue concussions in in your brain has got to heal like anything else that they're keeping players out when I had my can get knocked out and number times. Then you have the dinger's where you just get confused, but. You need to come out when you have Dinger on your confused. And even though you start thinking against your brain hasn't really healed yet. Right. So today, they're they're doing a much better job of keeping players out of the game might even skip a couple of weeks. So they're going the right direction, but football is one tough sport. And foresee goes mass times acceleration. I I used to plug that the naval cutting with a slide rule, by the way. So. So four players are bigger and faster. So the forces is greater today. You get hit harder today than even in the old days. So while you got the vices helmet here. And it's just throw to have you here. Roger failures really honored whenever you, you know, call in or stop by. It's great. So thanks for your off the Friday program. Roger Staubach is right here on the rich Eisen show.

The vice devices home it so was it three or four years ago. I wanna say we were at a four years ago. We were at Stanford kind of sports psychology deal and the vice his helmet was there. And I took my youngest son with me who will be there tonight for game night. Okay. But I took him from school without telling anyone I just told him to come with me. So the police were looking for me thousand one issue fact fact that the police were called 'cause my son was in school. Bill get better. So my wife is blowing my phone up and we're sitting down and I'm sitting we're talking about this helmet. And I had an opportunity probably think invest in the company, right? It was an opportunity, and I just. Didn't do it. And I'm not smart. Well, I mean, it sounds like day was filled with bad decisions bad start off with a bad day. It's just a bad decision day for Jones, drew. You didn't call the school to say, you're not springing your son there. I didn't know we had to do that, you know back. What you did? You know? I just I was like, hey, I was taking them. What's called a you know, what just come with me? I gotta go to thing. We'll have you tell your wife, you're doing. This is my son decision. It was it was your hair good. At least was it. A bad hair? Daytona? No, no hair was phenomenal cut that night. But. Your hair cut. The raiders. So you're you mentioned the game night. We're going to be doing the game day game nights. A a pictionary crazy type game night night half hour show live on the NFL network tonight at six o'clock, if you're at the experienced come on out, I'm hosting a bunch of stuff. You're also part of the eight and a half hour pregame show on the NFL network that started five minutes ago all super Sunday. And then also you're calling the game for the Rams the that's going to be a little nerve wracking. But you call the game. It'll be great. How the Rams look to you this. You know, it's the first person you have you not eyeball has has him. We'll working what are you hearing about? Oh, I've been hearing a lot. I mean, I know they had a great practice. They're really Dowd in talked to a couple of players. They're excited about his opportunity. Right. Because again, you're talking about team three years ago that everyone thought was we talked about this on air the last time it was a time when we we're all on the plane like who were we going to go from here. And so that was the Thursday night game blow out three days after they fired. Jeff fisher. Yep. Jared goff. It's still yet to win a game. Is it was his fifth start as a starter? And there wasn't a single person on that plane that thought they were thirty seven games removed from the Super Bowl or that in a year in two years time any team that had just fired their coach was trying to replicate. Whatever the Rams were cooking, right? Nobody thought that would be possible on that plane. And so, you know to kind of call the journey over the last couple of years to see those guys. And then you talk to them chance to reach out to a couple of coaches, and there's all enjoy. The moment. Really? But they know that it's a tough task ahead, and we're going to battle. We're gonna do this morning. The patriot fan we're going to battle. It's on. I think it's gonna be fun. I think it will be too is girly hurt or not. No, he's not hurt. And then what happened man similar to the story? You know, he's had a bad day. Right. I think sometimes he's wake up on the wrong side of the bed. I've had bad games. There was a game. We played on Monday night against the Baltimore Ravens wire. Fumbled four times didn't score fumble right before I got in the end zone. You just have bad days. And so his was in the NFC championship game. Well, I think it's is gonna work to his benefit because I'm seeing he's on Twitter. He's active. Oh, yes. Okay. And he re tweeted somebody talking about his performance against the Cowboys. And he goes, oh, that's right. Add one hundred yards against the Cowboys. I forgot so -ssume that I read the tweet in that tone of voice, and that was the tone of voice that he'd writing minted. Yes. And I think again, you know, we're such a our society we like to live in the moment. The last thing we saw why the call the non Cozma. Oh, big. And all those thing bliss. Remember, he he got hurt week one. And all those big games that he had throughout the season until the last couple of weeks. I mean, he was doing on the same knee that that everyone's really thing that he's banged up on. So you know, the two hundred yard game against Denver and the three touchdown games that he was having all it was all the the big game against Detroit. You know? So he he's he's a very capable player to make plays. And I think they'll utilize them Jones drew here on the rich Eisen show. What about the idea that they need to have a game like that from a Royce a win? Well when girly gets going that offense is solvable because now the plaques and pass opens up Jared Goff, more comfortable. The receivers are seeing simple coverages you need those type of games it helps the offense better helps the team better. He's won the the vocal ears on the team. But also think when Todd's having fun you see the kind of takes a lot of pressure off where when you saw the saints. He wasn't having a good time. They're showing stretching on the sidelines. His face. It was just. You could see the kind of other players feed off that. And so when Todd smiling talking trash to the cameras all those things the normally doing a really good job. And they're having a good time. Okay. So ram's own to against the NFC championship game part participants from this year and last year. Okay. They were all went to against the eagles and Owen to own one against the eagles. And only one against the saints. They were Owen one there one oh against the chiefs. That's what I'm trying to say. So they played against the eagles. Who a lot of folks thought should have been in the NFC championship game. We talked to their own one against the saints whose fan base thinks they should be in the Super Bowl. And there they beat the chiefs who lot of folks think and we got Travis Kelsey coming on the third hour. They kinda got hose by the the the rules on overtime toss. I understand that. So well, or if you win the toss you've got a score. Yes. Right. Which obviously the saints did not do are the patriots the best team that. At the Rams of faced this year. I would say that talent wise. They're the best team wasn't Saint probably the saints. Are the eagles? The eagles get enough credit for the town that they had they had a lot of injuries Belay alshon Jeffery golden Tammy and they put they brought together. Nice group. It would have to be the same star think top to bottom the saints. Probably one of the Motown two teams in the league. But the thing that, you know, you're going to the greatest of all time the goat. And that's the difference. Tom Brady seen everything Bill to the scene. Everything they played against Wade Phillips time they've had little success. Wade has had little success. I think the patriots have had more and that's a concern. But again, just like last year the eagles had two guys that won, you know, Super Bowls with the patriots or played for the patriots. Just like the Rams Jim Brandin cooks Makita lead. They're gonna play a big role in this game. Because those guys that you pick the brain last week on what Tom Brady likes to do. What is called? What are they like to do this? And then vice versa for McVeigh. Like what why are they run this? Type of coverage is where he what do you think they're gonna try to do with a keep to leave, and you can gain planning scheme around that moisture drew here on the rich Eisen show. Here's what I think is is the key here because we could talk about fifty million different things you have all week on NFL network. And we could do it here. If we had the time, but I think it comes down to this with McVeigh and Bella check and mcdaniels and Wade Phillips you've got some terrific mines operating here. Right. Terrific at the tops of their games right now. And you've got Brady one of the greatest executor's of a game plan ever in any sport. And you got golf where the setup with McVeigh in his helmet. Fifteen seconds to go is going to be key. It's the key is who's going to disrupt. The best will the patriots be able to disrupt Goff by disguising their coverage. Confusing him turning him into the golf that second guesses that doesn't hit the back foot and rip it or we'll sue and Donald come up the middle on Brady. And disrupt the one thing that Brady does which is timing not getting sacked which is yet to be sacked this postseason roller that another that. That's why you're on this show. Yeah. Matter of fact, my only one quarterback who's gone through an entire postseason from beginning to winning a Super Bowl or playing in the simple never been sat once and that was Brady before. So here he is. Now hasn't hasn't been sacked? So who's going to disrupt the most so? I'll say this. The most important thing for the Rams is start fast and getting their tempo when they get in temple. They haven't been stopped. I think there's a stat where one of the top three teams in the league and the two minutes at half the score points and then the game score points, and that's important because most of these games come down to the last two minutes or Super Bowls come down to the last two minutes of the game. Whoever has the ball. So for me is if they can get fastened into that no huddle offense where they can move down the field. That's what they did against the saints come back, but that's the falcons against the patriots all due respect to the folks who are here. And so you gotta play all four no disrespect to to you know, the falcons fans, but they weren't they're not healthy. They have the Rams ability with the weapons they had Julio. Don't get me wrong. With one of the greatest catches in the history of the game that we'd be talking about today, if they want it, you're exactly right. Okay. Then and hold on. Devante Freeman call. I mean. Who will special about Ryan Ryan MVP as more expect more experience going into that game Goff? Does I don't wanna get caught in this wormhole? But I just think that you know, this team they've been through a lot throughout this season last season right out of the falcons beat him last year. And they still have a lot of you know, things that they should be able to do. So for me. It's more of getting getting back to being you don't force. Don't Bill check to change somebody guys that they Reggie Bush said it you should go out with two bags whether they never put back on the field. So why would you do that be you and do the best place that you can do and execute your plays and the best your ability and see what happens if the way the ball? I I would rather lose being the Los Angeles Rams of two thousand eighteen then trying to be something else. There's no question that Bella check in Brian floors on defense is going to tell these disguise the defense to the last second. They won't commit until the last second. But I. Helmet turned off on his head in the Super Bowl. And see what's what I can tell you what they're going to do. They're gonna play cover zero. Which is all blitz. When those safety help they're trying to get the ball. Get your think faster. They're gonna play a lot of man coverage, though, probably put Stefan Gilmore, Robin woods, and then double team Brandin cooks. And then they'll they'll allow Josh Reynolds do some things in those titans and make plays on one on one. But you have to make tight, you know, throws into tight window. So McVay knows it to what what's it gonna be counter? Or don't care is someone has to you have to win. You know, then the day, you know, I think I'm always namedrop guys with rob said his Jimmy and Joe's Xs and os as what it comes out of the Royal your players better than theirs at the end of the day. And you think the Rams players are better looking at Brockman better roster. There. You haven't. I'd have to say he said C J Anderson such a difference make rosters don't win super put Malcolm Brown to do with CJ Anderson's doing right now. I think Malcolm's different running back CJ is is to not even what he's done on the field is when he brings off the field that veteran leadership plan for different teams in different things being cut and going to adversity where he's hoping Todd out with some of that right now, obviously, you know, people are saying are you hurt? What's going on? What's wrong those type of deals, but then also sees Anderson's a really good running back and he's a phenomenal pass blocker. And Malcolm Brown was coming into that this year before he got hurt. I wanna see how they utilize both of those guys if they will come back next year ready to call Super Bowl, I'm excited. Yeah. About to do a lot of studying tonight. You're you're you're good. I mean, what do you study as well? Because I wanna make sure when I go on with you before Sunday that I'm ready, and then I wanna make sure I call the game the right way. This is I've never been to this rule for like that. I've never I've never played in this game. So I wanna make sure that I give but you've been here with the NFL network before. But I've never called the game too. Big deal. I know it is not to get you. I'll probably sleep. I went to bed early last. I was in bed at eleven thirty last night because I wanted to make sure I was at my best to know who with the owls. No, no, no, maybe tonight. After all study. No don't do that though. All right. Don't do that. But now I'm gonna I'm gonna I'm gonna kind of dive in a little bit. And then I'll really get into Marlon be ready for Sunday. I'm excited for me. I appreciate that. Really? Really am you've been great all playoff long all season long coming on the show coming here.

And Kyle Maury will be along with drew Brees coming to not only chat here but throw at the rich Eisen logo with the hole in it. Where Roger Staubach had three of ten, and according to rich Eisen show, social media, czar, TJ Jefferson spent the entire time during the MAURICE Jones drew segment stewing about the fact that he did not get more than three. In the same way that Kurt Warner was steaming about getting only three that's why they're hall of famers. That's why they're complete Kurt was kind of blaming the clear Roger was just mad at himself. Right. Exactly. And so you know, what I'd like to do actually right now is this Rams football. That's on the left of corner of my desk. Right. That's right near the interview chair. Don't you think we should snap to the furthest position before drew Brees gets here in our number three out of just out of respect? I think so also it's very convenient that the Lombardi trophy is gone. So now the patriots football can be next to where it properly belongs seen enough. They don't need. Because they're going to win the other one on switch to not I switched. Let's get to the poll question, which we haven't hit. Yeah.

What do you think? Patriots close patriots close. I don't think it's gonna be pig. I just don't think. So we haven't had a blow out in years. And for good reason, he's are two very evenly matched teams as MAURICE toys. I won't put my thumb on the it's gonna be great game. I won't put my thumb on the scale tonight in the NBA, Boston, New York. What do you think it's going to be like when they introduced the New York Knicks tonight? We'll we'll Deandra Jordan in New York. It is in Madison Square Garden on ESPN next fans. Cheer after what he was saying this morning. What did you say this morning? We'll get to it. He he's he no longer committing to the Celtics long-term. It looks like I weren't. I word this guy. Because you know with the Knicks having done this, and I'll I'll just dive in this a little bit here, but get deeper into it. We have more real estate in in the second hour with the Knicks of essentially done is thrown themselves to the mercy of the ping pong balls. Bouncing their way and throwing themselves to the mercy of two of the three of Durant kyri and Kawai saying, please come here. And if they don't get two of those three, and they don't get the ping pong balls bouncing their way, they just traded away their purple unicorn for flexibility that would not result in getting a championship roster on the spot just add water and getting that. And a lot of people had their fun with that yesterday. I'm i'm. A little concern about what the Knicks did. But after twenty years of doing nothing, but the same crap. And having somebody like porzingas drop in their lap. It's radical and it's risky, but it's something different. Definitely. And it's the only way I mean, it's like I said, I'll delve Newt a little bit more. But it's it's it's radical it's risky, but it's different in. It's bold. Or it's totally stupid and dumb. And we'll find out what it is shortly. We'll find out on July first. But in the meantime, the question is is this point next week will Anthony Davis be a Laker.

"Contracts salary caps. Why do I were favorite teams make some of the moves? They do. It's usually the money. It's time for the business of sports with Andrew Brandt. And there wasn't goes. Welcome to another edition of the business of sports with Andrew Brannagh's, presented by bet. Online at AG, your online sportsbook experts exclusive partner podcast one sports net. Use promo code podcast one received the fifty percent. Sign of bonus today. That's bet online dot AG. I'll start you off with a rant and a second rant. First one is about Reuben foster the much troubled former number one pick of the San Francisco forty Niners. They they they tolerate a lot with him a lot of incidents, and there was one that they couldn't tolerance the last straw, Saturday night at the hotel Tampa Bay has a domestic altercation with someone who's had that before with his girlfriend in the hotel and he's flushed out of the forty Niners despite the Prussians currency expended a number one pick. He is released. It's amazing that he got the chances. He did of course is because he's number one because he's a talented guy and low and behold, he's claimed the Washington Redskins claimed him on waivers now. The Redskins are quick to point out. He's not gonna play. He's actually been placed on the Commissioner of Zampa list. He can't play gotta go through counselling. Gotta get cleared. Gotta figure out got approved the Redskins seek he's cured. All those kind of things the point is the Redskins took a chance because of his car is talent. They are seeing that town character equation in could not resist town is like a drug. Listen every team has a town character equation some teams allow for more loose character than others. And based on the Redskins acquiring this player. They are one of those teams now, I know they're going to say, yeah, we're going to follow the league and he can't play for us. So he's off the exemplifies any passes. All these clearances any might be suspended on the. But the fact is they claimed him. So they're statement by Doug Williams, VP player personnel to me is translated to. Yeah, we're not gonna play 'em. Now, we can. And he's gotta be a good boy. But when he can we got him we got him. And that again is the drug of talent that sometimes it's hard to pass by. By without even knowing the side effects, greater talented was greater tolerance that's true in sports and business and seems especially true with high round draft picks because they have that pedigree. And they're going to get that second chance third chance. If Reuben foster was down the line player. There's no way he'd be in the NFL right now. But he's still is albeit on the Commissioner exemplify will play at some point. I think for the Washington Redskins, and they'll be happy. He is because of his town not his character. Other quick rant about major league baseball. They become the third of the major four sports leagues to Inca deal with MGM resorts in this new world of sports betting in. Oh, what a new world. It is major league baseball. You kidding me? They the first Commissioner of the came into major league baseball judge Kennesaw mountain Landis came in because of a scandal involving gambling the black socks throwing the World Series. The White Sox through a shoeless. Joe Jackson nineteen nineteen they named a new Commissioner. They had to get control the game. Game establish integrity hired someone with impeccable credentials in that's their Commissioner. Then we fast forward to nineteen Eighty-nine Pete Rose, the hit king one of the greatest players in the history of the game banned from baseball by barchi Amata Commissioner at that time because he bet on baseball. He is now applied reinstatement to not one not two not three now four Commissioner still not let him but baseball which fought gambling in court in New Jersey for six years has now to deal with MGM and the Commissioner man for it is even talking about. Yeah, we get so many stopped is in place. What time between pitches? It's a great in game betting opportunity. What here's what we are now involved in with bedding. It is a new world is not your father's sports leagues anymore. Betting is legal betting is not taboo and commissioners are embracing it. And the thing note is of the four major sports leagues the one that has not inked to deal with casino is the NFL which still maintains players camping casino. Which still has had this integrity factor about casinos. Even while placing a team in the MEK of casinos in the country, Las Vegas again. That mixed message is some would say not just some mixed messages obviously hypocritical. But that's where we are with the with M MGM, that's my rant. It's really something that we've been fostered continues get chances and MGM signs of baseball after signing up the National Hockey League. And I the National Basketball Association MGM is becoming a staple of pro sports leagues, which you could never say years ago. Oh my God. What a difference.

Now, it is my keynote speech from the Wharton. School at university of Pennsylvania their business summit last week, though, we face time with backers that is going to be. Grabber? For one base of franchised, another being their higher. Are. A learning events. How we handle? Has situation the end. Three years. Three years. I had manage. Sort. Replacement is room. Young or. And this was my responsibility that agents. Themselves wise. So on it take you inside. What what is really going on with them? A transitional change volley moment. One happens Ambriz going to happen going to happen to these generational layers. Marches on. There's no force that hasn't. And. I was a I was very failed. I went to Stanford and I got to play on Tennessee. Now when I say that in GRA gracious because we had an eighteen against UC UCLA. It'd be team zone Oregon c team played or as I was like on GT. I played against Nevada. Reno. Humboldt? Steadiness? Okay. Plays reno. Let it in. Let's do this like what's this? We're gonna go play. But from the way, I suppose nothing whether you've ever seen on TV. I went to tournaments in Colleen Texas and live troubles, Louisiana, Davenport, Iowa, and maybe three people four people stance girlfriend. Online. With start on Monday. I lose by Tuesday. Off to the next site. But I wasn't sure small running downfall. I got as high as maybe twenty eight hundred in the world. So that six months of this I go I go I want you doing went to two loss, and I did have hedge. I'll admit that. We're business edge. Home to Georgetown, long from Washington DC, and I gotten into further mission. So made in the back of my mind. I'm like, oh, this tennis thing going workout always got law school. And that's maybe why only got twenty eight hundred. No. The poignant moment for me came like seventies later. I was an agent. I was reading player university of Illinois Champaign Urbana pick up the school paper. It says tonight at the center, a satellite. I'm like I played on that tour. Awesome. I out there. Here's a look out on that. That we're seeing. Saying. So the guys that I was grabbing around with twenty two twenty three twenty nine thirty. And two thousand four hundred five hundred eighty two hundred. Instead of making twelve a year making fifty six. They're still doing it. So we went out for beers. Does do look at me. Like, what are you doing? Why did you leave? What'd you get real job? And I said, well, I wouldn't good again. They will get better. And it just occurred to me this helped so much and dealing with far was never gonna leave rightfully so. You're elite athlete once you step off your in the wind. There's too many and every sport. They're going to pass about. So these guys weren't getting off the train until they had like, what are you gonna do over thirty three? A good job a touring Kroll of a job a HAMAs in the winter. Because it's such a drill sports is such an emotional attachment. I speak to so many people that come up. This coach this coach didn't buys against me. I'd be in the pros. I get. What's his raw? It's emotional. It's going to dry ways other. I get why negotiations both on the agent's side the team side or like. You get the player involved. You're get some serious. The Packers went I I'm an agent. I come into the Packers. They said, hey, you're nice guy agent negoti with you directly. I mean agent enter on this view and do this. I walk out of room like this'll be cool. I'm more more skilled steal Akers. Nice. Player. I learned. Experience as the worse. What I've just said they is raw. That's all you're telling a twenty five year old. He's not as good as he thinks that he's not as good as the guy Detroit or Denver, Dallas, Miami Dade. Why did they can hire their fire than you think of me? What's your deal? Some of these three times my size saying this in my face. Good experience special ingredient, so fishbowl, and so small I see these guys wise frenzy. Enzi everywhere. One movie theater. The teams. So it's like you. So I'll never do that. I learned you come here. You want new me? Nope. I wanted to agent. Agents are great offers agents are bothers between the team and the player. Goshi overall. Again, I learned I'm like, I'm not doing. I'm a skilled negotiator done for twenty years. But no, I'm not. I don't want to hear ties. I don't want to hear. I want to hear. So I was aged school. Experience for me. There's a big firm Washington no longer that represented at that time a lot of players on where they do mean. For playing DC junior tournaments. I knew them they took a chance on an unpaid intern at Georgetown law. Come in about ten suck. Did a good job. I guess my third year. Real wealth firms not sports firms. I get a couple offers. I make a decision. Do I go into real law or do? I work with pro serves or it's and all my friends. Yeah. They wanna hang out with stuffy lawyers wanna hang on with cool athletes is choice. But even as young guy realized maybe. Maybe I realized that if I turn away of law to go into sports, which is not sophisticated. We over. I'm sort of turn my back on being older. I really. I was okay. But that's a decision. So I went into the sports Pap started. As a tennis Representative started representing tennis players, and you do that you're hurting thirteen fourteen year olds at the armed fold Miami. And what that means is your. Parents. Beach. So I did that for a while. But then again opportunity I saw down the ball gun. David David represented raid basketball players and head just two years ago. Sided George was coming up with Nike Air Jordan, by the way projections for year one for Air, Jordan. We're like sixty five million dollars and sold. Eight hundred fifty million your one. I'm like to work for him. Because he needs help. I didn't tell them this verte tenants. I'm done playing the watching dealing with his kids in their streams, God two lessons. They said. Okay. So I moved down all same firm working for data. And here's the opportunity. I saw look for that that I said so David is all invested in NBA all any should super it hatrick Ewing and all the guys that I got to work with from Baltimore, Reggie Williams. Ready Lewis, David Wingate favorite. That gut is humming. Mosey Bove's five deals. And let this is cool. But the opportunity was football because David had no time we have Hugo players languishing practice, let's develop. So I developed over my six years there are five to ten fifteen twenty letters. I'm the football. I love football. Sure. Washington Redskins every week. No, it was just the opportunity. So I'd go to people and then I'm doing a contract with Mike Lynn head of Minnesota Vikings.

I order food for sixty is always gone after twenty. I never aid. There's so league. Nursing people. Like that said. Yes, Moore who never have. But the key meeting. I got in my career. I've never out bigger being. I get a meeting with the gentlemen, drew. One of the great brands and the night before game. They're and in front about hundred thousand people we just want to ten thousand. I say when he does do at halftime. What do you do? What do you mean? What do you do what you mean? What do you do go in? And he actually said this. We smoke cigarettes. We go out there and run kick the ball say tomorrow night. Stadium or his versus. He said we still smoke. Yes. So let's do it. They said that next morning. It's a month's this audible their of the Spanish guys. We don't play today. To raining. I have to get Paul tattoo on on them. Surfable just say we're pulling we're playing so again game. And then I'm like, oh my God. Show Ican dozen people walked in that door. Thank God for the asthma. Thank god. I have about six thousand tickets. We had eighteen thousand gun and there have fun. So then worried about the product first house. This. You're gonna have to get the ball hit the title of the same pattern extra tackles touch of yours. I'm. The crowd is like like golf. In case, they go. Never forget that. We're not in Kansas. Oh my God. All the wrong times the entire. He did the old lace on the entire. They had no clue couple games. We sorta let let's just see how plays. Oh my God. And I said at third game. I said all right. We're having a meeting that's a. We are not arguing forget. Forget touchdowns running backs. Quarterback. We are going to sell three hours. That's a they don't care. Don't care. So I have fanned committee think Andrew, no more meetings. No more meeting where meetings play than you meet. They don't like meat said there. I go to my coach screaming we run. So we're having meetings. We're done. Let's sell three hours are the marching bands heard too much. Jewelers in there. Hire entertainment. Called frisbee goes. Four during the games where everyone before. Five thousand for the whole year. Crap. So we did we made it work. So many stores all that arsons lasted two years ago. Your folded a bag of your to without our. That was. And I came back. I got back in business. This was a group called wolf associates. Higher the age of business. Doctor Jedi magic Larry Bird. All guys. Unfortunately, the -firmative wife. Soldiers in Boston run. I ran the football basketball side guy, Bobby ORR, rain hockey side out of school. So I was working. Vessel. Fires for few years in the late nineties. The guy was working with most was a running back university of Texas. Great contact along store of his name is was raking leaves. Ricky was a baseball player pro in the suburbs. But I was starting to come good football. Then of course, you became the Heisman Trophy the best thing. Those hottest thing. Sports time. I got dreadlocks had I had a watershed on my. Ever over strange kid rate. Rape. Three months of working with them start hanging around. Brickwork? Finding Tony they work for someone master p hoop. Rapper. Started big sports wants to be got. So go with them. But I want you to go with me to be. I said, I don't think that's my. I mean, just meet him. So mean, PD master was named is personnel. And he's ghetto. It's like an episode on. And I'm like, okay, go she'd all these deals for football basketball, women's sports. He's going to take over the world. This is kind of a risk. But are my wife. I think I'll be working for this masterpiece. Go back to my agency there like you'll have bricky. You don't have a job. I'm sure that's. So. Exact same time. It's having Zach saying this is a slice store or lender. Closes wonder opens. I get a coffin agreement actors now I had client air just retire last year eighteen year career. Third-string quarterback that time they met hassle. I'm like I can't do. I got masterpiece. They knew. But we're not calling about estimate Wave Home. Mike Holmgren our coach just went to Seattle Seahawks to run the team. Sorry to hear that said he took Ronco. He took a guy that ran the whole business operation to see us. To see that. They said, how'd you like to switch sides? I said he green. And I have players on Packers of years, and they said you ever next week. We join working with you. I said let me come up there from Austin, Texas aid, Greece degree bay ten degrees. Degrees. And I'm very direct. I said to them please take offense of gla- pecking here do this job. Said offense ticket. Got to be here. So I started to. I agree those kinds concert MAC going, but you know, what what rival over ten years is really became this. I was the guy that was the Valance. I think everyone's ation needs this outsize horse. So on the one side of the business. What do we look like down the road talking? Now what look like twenty point. We're going to be half wise is they're gonna be if not what's going to happen. Long term how much money are we putting into these position planning? Planning on the other side of the -sition is the media, all of the coaches GM. Sometimes Andrew we need is player side on practice field. The game Sunday. So you're always sometimes you're the voice of caution. Cautioned the business sometime of football side, some such voice aggression to the business. I think we need we make. And as you know, the parents go out on her. I really felt like a working for public trust vice spent twenty nine on contract versus forty million. No one's really gonna know. Or be accountable. I had to feel like I'm working for the shareholders of this trust. I'm going to do right? Is an awesome responsibility. The magnitude of working for the as you have. Your owners g sets. Tell you the offer. So all the player contracts. I was doing executives players side. Now mentioned side. I get past VS agents. Exactly what they were talking about. I dealt with the league on all the league issues dealt with all managing the salary cap. I dealt with all player issues with team be grievances about injuries. Whenever find on field. Come in speakerphone. We've had the. Grievance with the league about appealing their finds all those kind of things so few players because there's disputes with the leaders with their agent with other players issues. And again, all these matters up sometime this guts on number one. Highest one year we had a bad year. And we've got a big draft when you're grabbed at that time. Readily complicated contract negotiations that was a player there. My small Enver strap weekend after he had already far car bought the house and to go back school. So then goes, you get very heated, obviously, some the ones with Brad. It was always a situation where you want to do the right thing with Kim. You have a massive calf number on this letter. You wanna resist temptation to bonus it out which is birth salaries of bonus to her great your cap for future years we've seen somebody teams trouble with this. And I learned from experiences round leave with John Elway for you. Mayor some new teams that were left with ten twenty billion dollars half holes because they. Or tired or left even today? Oh, twenty Cowboys cab while he was yes. We wanted to stay away from that. It was always he was nobody found seasonings Mississippi woods on fishing. Whatever is doing and one year. I really needed to do a contra light seven people lined up after him. But he is the verse he wasn't paying attention. They couldn't find. So I take planes transferred and up in Hattiesburg, Mississippi somehow go where no each lunch every day. Swings. The door of looks at me with shouldn't you? Accident. Playoff. That's all. He's a scratch golfer. So that was an experience that night. I remember like incoming were the house. So like. He ready and then Asian gets on. Well. Start. We covers. So we'll do it tomorrow. The first contract in the NFL was signed on the seventh hole of. That's where I go. Breath. You know patterns are not known for free agency base. I ever has got in Charles Woodson. By the way, when he's when signed gum field state, and you really don't see much of this history or it's UC player on the field with the best of the best and being. Of the moment that guy came on our field Woodson. He was our best returns of corner. News or best vendors are best tackled. Our best avenue. Ever seen about truly like John Elway Charles Woodson just beyond everyone else. Was a free agent and for some reason chasing, and we got in. And it was I was the longest month. Mine Goshi rear because four six thirty five days. He knew the only team really chasing them with any kind of money. Facts. And I knew you don't want to. So I like wake of every morning good negotiating guest myself. You just waiting for another taking. What's the problem to agent? Everyday goes, Andrew, Andrew any black people up there. I'm like, no. No, I'm Jewish. Made a work. And I'm selling the congress. Listen, Charles will get you want Michigan. It's a lot less diverse. And the town rapid south around all families. Crow. And I do. That's. So it was a long. And he finally said and gone there. And yes, it was a Justin period for ause was. Was opened always years, of course, has nobles. Some clashing going. She became such such a good player of the year spirits having troubles or shirk just because leader. So those stories you have. One of the story. Two thousand five here. We are. Okay. We saw two things happening. So I'm in the warmer and on the left in the is management. And on the right of me is coach. And we look at that board two things happen number one. Nobody's taking Iraq. Earth quarterback. I pick in the draft out. No one's taking a second, including John. Groom told him if you're there were taking you. Jim. We can't ac- deaf. There. We're looking at opportunity to take this guy. And the other thing happened is all the players. We wanted are going to. We wanted this guy with the Marcus where cop. Don. Kinda was take the markets where we all like going to table. First round grades one one era, and I've got the coaches here as we're pushing yanking pulling the co saying. Not take someone cool. Not help us this year. Do not take. I've got these guys. What are we always said trust trust? You're not doing in the seven round race to take corner of defensive on trust. Yes. Yes. And they're tugging. Why we? We had the most rural quarterback in history. Never got her. Never misses us. I said in a roster cats always like we need to everyone. Not to not great one. Right will never get her. So. Here we go. They're going nuts. They are that. Coach's live by the day. They're fired every year. Aaron Rodgers is not going to office that you're probably not an ex you're on the next year. Probably never. There. Okay. Get on clock. Joe is Andrew get along. And by him. I thought Mike. Good friend agent. Hello. My nose is Erin. Aaron is Enron. I talked to Mike. I felt so bad even sitting hours caterers around only one there on TV. I'm washington. And Mike is like Mary. Although my instructions were he on the phone twelve minutes. Fifteen minutes. Came on the phone don't say any. Like just hold on. Because we wanted to see that grant. Awkward reviews to trader we're like, we'll trade. Sure. Some. So for twelve months, I got the porches. Everyone rooms looking at me on phone steam. And the phone does not rain crickets. Nothing. No one wants. Says enter tone. And I'm like every time. I've watched the Packers all my God. If that phone, right? The National Football League with so much. That's. To number two. Sure. Some of it wasn't an office. So that is starting rotation. I spend the next three years managing these camps on bread side. Saw mean. Interest rate. Garoppolo you saw no one wants to go to work every day and see the replacement in office every day. Fred sighs Labus. Keys was true. Please. Never retired. Please train them. Managing this every day for three years a new breads camp. I just got this. You're our superstar by about them. Yeah. Win. And on the air and. To win. They're. And you just have to be professional. He honest as you can now at some point turn the keys over there. But you know, letting say something like that. And of course, tired I knew it wasn't really retired in back with a messy force and all that. But I think that was the moment between president and the future lay. Everyone is Asian sports. Are not goes through this right? Do us with the present. Or you more future. Focus. You have to balance that. We had an opportunity there to transition to keep it going. Look what happened this year? You know, the New York Giants now they had a some generation runback. That's the same thing at some point on from manning. They have no identifiable succession, we create succession by just. Lasted three years. Three long years. It was. And sometimes players you just don't know how it's going to turn out. You got to look at all of these issues when you're managing cab. It's not like individual contract negotiations with players because when you're an agent all you care about is your. When your agent I like to fantasy football, right? You don't care about team outcomes. You don't care. It's an age is like a fantasy. But a team is all about team. So I have players come and say can you do this for my contract? You love me. I do for you. Lines door. Every agent knows what teams are doing and every player those. So you do something you're gonna hear about. Really? So managing team was much more challenging to be age because you're dealing with roster to decide listen tell the coaches, hey, we have enough money. We'll do that you have to make all these things. Get. Player that picture down there. He had his team. He was the old player community leader beliving kid Darren sharper, I send my community for everything. Loved loved women. Mary are parents both principles Richmond's who. Ten years later sharper sense to life in prison for multiple drove grapes. You just never know. Sometimes you think, you know, about players, and you just don't know you have to figure out all these things about character about what's going on. I think the thing that I always understand about players that. You're balancing. With all the domestic violence things store that all I was sitting at is talking to coach. Don't give you serve. He has had. Player. She really wants. Really wants to send. And I'm like looking at this player. She's go she blood on drunken disorderly sexual assault sexual misconduct. I look at them and say, you know, there's no way God's green earth. We can bring guy. Coach's O red-faced on. And enter what do you think we asked him to do? What do you think we're asking to do? We don't want to come here and teach seventh grade. Or endless acquire. Get into seventy to eighty street bites and win. Throws paper. That's why. Can't he can't turn it off. This guy. Can't turn it off from field to life. So yes, there's no. I one that bell lost. Because sometimes you just have to deal with always town character quesion trying to fight that sometimes. But what you want to do is try be principled and staying with whether Stanford package is always be Florida Stanford things the drafting built Nala with some. Try to win. This thing way.

Here right in the middle of of an NFL workweek when we first started on NFL network in two thousand three, we came on week eleven are are. Are seventeen year anniversary is coming up. In about five weeks. So we you know. We begin realize that there's an ebb and flow to NFL week. This is prior to Thursday night football's return and Wednesday is the day. Usually. When there's no pandemic but even in a pandemic. When you hear from quarterbacks? Day there were also is also day that you would hear from a head coach for the first time since. Sunday. Some coaches didn't. Talk until like. Wednesday. And you know there were a couple coaches that that would talk almost every day. One of them was bill parcells. Where he would talk every day and we began to realize. Jersey Guy. WHO's a big boss? Talking. extemporaneously in letting you know his innermost thoughts. kind of like made us the doctor. Melfi, in this equation. And we would just play his press conference. We would just play four or five minutes of it on NFL total access like uncut tune like fresh tunas, what we called it. And it was amazing. It was just amazing how he would go darrien thrust with the Dallas media. That's where he wasn't time. and. and. Say what you will about Bella. Check. Maybe, he's from the par-. Cells world. Okay. But the guy speaks almost every day. He does he's available a lot. Doesn't tell you a lot sometimes. And today he showed up. This is how he showed up on his own. That is not doctored or anything I don't know if is that I think that's the way they sell the shirts now, right? I'm serious by the way. I. Don't know that I took his favorite. Hoodie, this might go back to the first super bowl for all. We know I think the shirt itself was established in nineteen, sixty nine. and. I want to say this because there's been a lot of commentary about this. And I want to, it's been really wanted. I WanNa back the play of my nfl one hundred, all time team friend twitter's been really funny about it. This morning I want a back the play here. For honestly when he's at. Super Bowl press conference. Booted, look straight showed up on Letterman the fame jeff of him like tackling that everyone puts out there whenever something goes the Patriots. Way. Yeah. That's on letterman that's suited booted. He does suited boot. NFL opening night, superbowl week just speaking on behalf. Of I think the human race. Okay. Bald. We all want to find ourselves in a position in life where we can. Dress like this for work they always say just for the job you want. What job does bill right now you know what you know what he wants when he shows up there like that he wants you to do your job. I'd like him telling us. Successfully telling him telling people successfully do your job for as long as he has has given him the license. That we all would love to have you know. Once upon a time had an age an agent. May he rest in peace named Steve Lebowitz? Okay. And there are many in the business might remember him. He's been gone a long time. He wants asked me a question when I first started in the business. What do you want? Out of your career, what's like if you can have one thing out of your career? What would it be? I? Don't know how to answer like I, just been on sportscenter for like two three years I'm trying to. I'm trying to figure out. What I. could do this opportunity and keep making it bigger and bigger and many different ways being told that I couldn't. I could only have the job that I wanted and it was still a dream job I wanted to. And it was also a very deep end of the pool. I mean, all you gotTa do is just look up the roster of sportscenter from ninety six to ninety nine I'm I'm in my late twenties. Trying to figure this out and I really didn't know my you know what? From my elbow? And I didn't know how to answer the question. Prestige. Money fame I don't know how to answer it. And his answer was something I'll never forget which is why I'm bringing up today you want to be able to control your own assignments. Because everything else you just said, will come from that and you will be more than happy to go to work because you're doing what you WANNA do name people in our business your business can do that. And it took me a while to come up with to fill up maybe both hands. That's what he said. And I thought of that when I saw. This photograph today. He's able to choose his own assignment, his own cloves, his own because he's bill frigging Bella check. He might hear about it from. Loved ones in his life I'm sure Linda's now. Only. Come on. That's not the guy who was on Nantucket the cover of Nantucket magazine. Definitely not there's no less than six holes around the neck and that's wechat all my Gosh No. Quarter It's coming apart at the seams. His hair comb and a week. What is going on there? He's he's looking at film with the LAS Vegas Writers. Maybe he he might have just looked at Darren Wallerstein. Him Up all night he did have high praise for. Darren yesterday. So I just want to back the play of. P squared right there man lot of. A lot of people tweeting out. Bill and a suit like February twenty. This is now. After starts that's Good. School Nation Franker. Are you an explanation? He can do this. This is the goal like do I do like wearing sweaters and button shirt sir jackets and whatever and being suited and booted, right? But what I love to show up, just like dressed like a t shirt and whatever what I hear about it from loved ones in life. But I can't I can't do that. You know what I mean. Don't you think you'd hear we'd hear from peacock or or somebody like what did you? Get attacks device well interesting. What's up with that? We one time the second time of what do you do? Yeah. Like if I showed up to NFL Game Day morning like that. I think you should help you like one you changing. I. Think you should actually start i. you know what I mean like a show on Sunday. That you like I'm again I'm. I'm fortunate to have had the job that I've I've had seventeen years. I've put in the time I've put in the work. Yeah. But still if I show up to work Sunday dress like that, they will say to me when are you changing? Do think giant mirrors he'd be like, Hey, what's going? Further up the chain that keep going. Q.. I mean name them all even. Even. Even get like an rg one. Oh tax like what are you doing he? The commissioner when I first showed up. Wearing, a beard Oh yeah. Del Right was like what's on your face? That is what he said to me. What's on your face and why are you doing that but then you explain that no, I, did susie likes. The Look. I'm still like I'm still I'm still well, let's rocking it if you if I may, of course but. I'm saying is I've I've gotten into a certain spot with in my own sphere of influence I still can't even short like dozen for this guy. Is Bill. Belichick and he's GONNA show up. Zoom do you think Robert Kraft? Would even just say, Hey. What's up with that? No No, we're. Not. Messing with anything. Right this. You could say you're not messing with success. That's. The picture of success in New England like bills auditioning for hangover four we're we're all that's owned, and then I've made my point we're all trying to achieve this chee, which is amazing. Who can do that? Nobody. Cliff Kingsbury on one spectrum, and then you got on the other with this tailored. TALION Like downs on Villa? For the draft and then bills got holy sleeveless way. Baby. I love it. There it is. That's our guy. That's our guy fires. Let Hashtag. Guys we love both of them. There's enough room. There's enough room plenty plenty. There's enough room tent is that large? and. Here's the reason why they're not going to say anything. If you would mind Don. Bowie. Put Up the week three scheduled. Patriots and the raiders are a huge game. Nansen Romo. On Patriots and raiders are a huge football game there's a huge game. Early, game by the way early game along with the. Texans going to Pittsburgh needing a win huge game two in one Pittsburgh. The Vikings our own to welcoming into. Tennessee. into their house, the Rams Fly West to east for a second consecutive week to and overseas too and with the bills and the rams their. San, Francisco, kicking the tires on that. metlife turf sitting there at one and one with the rest of the vision at. The Washington football team in a browns at one, and one of those teams is going to be two and one. To Chicago bears at two and zero against the Falcons who are still staring at the fidget spinner of an onside kick. At Owen to an Julio might be more hurt than is lead on it looks like just in Herbert's getting the start against Carolina minus Christian McCaffrey. The jets. I mean. EASILY, in my mind, the worst team, it's going to be entering week number three against the colts team at that. That needs to win their second in a row. Look at the star in Seattle. com on bucks in. DENVER. Roll tape of Tom Brady's times and Denver being somewhat rough very difficult. The Arizona cardinals in Murray to know the Sunday night or is off the charts and the Monday night or is stupid ridiculous. I'm also excited for I've afternoon games the last two weeks there's only been three. So red zone will be popping what a week three. Motto it all kicks off with Thursday night football don can you get those sound bites ready? You know because? It's not just it's not just something in my paycheck to mention it. It's on NFL network exclusively. Fun Game. And I did just go higher guys. Two guys who are out of you know what to give one who's been through it all because he started for nineteen different teams right and the other one is Gardner meant you who's like Burt Reynolds in cleats in the NFL Here's Ryan Fitzpatrick. Showing up talking about. The Battle of the facial hair that's on the line. The must ask versus the beard. I mean I, think the beard is a cooler look. And I think guys that grow mustaches a Lotta Times have patchy sides for their beards. So they just stick with the mustache but my wife appreciates the mustache trimmed up a little bit more but she does hate the beer to. For me. By the way just you know that's Clearly looks like change your background zoom, right? Yeah and I just love that Ryan's just right on top of the camera. It fills up the whole damn space right there. See get to see everything like the beer doesn't even fit the screen that's how glorious and flowing it has, and then I just liked. The smacktalk. Saying that meant, you can't grow out the whole situation because of the patchy issues that one would have some people have it. All right. Here in. You responding on his own zoom? they saw can grow a beard patchy sides we now I'm a I'm have respect for elders. You know especially when they're much much elder I'll. Be Respectful. Everybody chewing gum seriously like that's like a scene from hooper. That's like cannonball run at the literally that's the ball run. He's like Burt Reynolds chewing gum. August. Put Donald Nor McDonald's should play Gardner you. Big Hat. On Them Turkson Funny Turn Ferguson name should we should get a donald playing Gardner meant you. Why wouldn't you watch Thursday night football tomorrow night for either the hottest mess possible or Windows that that are so tight, it doesn't matter. Because they're thrown in Kiel my gosh, I think there's going to be a lot of offense tomorrow Alex said. And people pick it up. Gardner Mints. You left and right and their fantasy. He is everyone's week three waiver darling at the quarterback position. I got. Mike Davis okay good. Four weeks. I don't know about that I. Think he's going to put up some points. Just, by a sheer. Messy, it caught eight passes in the second half. Okay. Good puts the. Let's go. Let's go. It's his opportunity. I think you find. Fine trying to talk are, let's take a phone call and then we'll get to Kyle Brandt Let's go to. What am I going to do here? Uh Man I could go any different way here. Let's go to Allan Pennsylvania because he's got an ax to grind what's up how? Gretch my on. Yes. You are on how what's going on man okay. All right. Just Yeah. A little bit of an issue You'RE GONNA sound a little a little cynical. It was great to see that you were talking to Charles Woodson here before what am I? All time favorite raiders I have I have been a raider fan since probably the late nineteen sixties this late nineteen sixties okay and I know how the hall of Fame Committee seems to have an issue about putting raiders into the hall of fame. So. What I, what I WANNA say is at there's no question that Charles Woodson is the first ballot ball famer agreed, but it all depends on what team he's going to represent. A Green Bay packer they'll be just like that. I'll. Committee has no charge. No problem at all put packers, steelers, cowboys. Anything I love this by the way out. You sound like I'm very ten years how you sound like a very upstanding individual are and I say this with the utmost respect are you wearing a tinfoil hat right now ally Because I ll tell none of corner, I will tell you this. Going there's. GonNa, be a little cynical because I, mean I I I've seen how the hall of fame I mean the biggest issue I ever had with the hall of fame is when they waited 'til Kenny Stabler passed away. Now I know all things and God bless the first ballot all Hamer. Blessed the fact that right now and thank you for the Call Al God. Bless the Tom. Floor is still alive and that he's been finally finally take selected by the committee. In charge of selecting coaches that he finally gotten the opportunity he's going to go in. But there's no I literally these it's it's a room filled with. selectors. And all they WANNA do is get the hell out of the room is in short amount of time as possible, but also still take their responsibility seriously. So nobody's GonNa be sitting in the room with Charles Woodson saying, are we considering him as a packer or raider unless there is such a disparity between the tenures of both careers there and there isn't There isn't. There is not. No there is not a super, but nobody's going to sit there and go. Well, we hate the raiders, let's not put them in. That's not going to happen I mean him and Peyton Manning's conversations take less than thirty six should be over. Yeah. They should just say here's. What's in right I on? And move on move on. Eight, four, four, zero, four, rich. There is still time to take.

A creator of stories and storytelling Stephen King is is that we have a breakout poll. From our poll question. Most watchable movie of the two, the two choices are shocked redemption and remember the titans. Shawshank came out twenty six years ago today remember the titans. Twenty years ago today. And then based on the Shawshank Redemption, which is the best film based on a Steven King work. You know my answer. And they're all over the map from the Shawshank redemption misery the shining and stand by me we need include the green, mile, and or carry or. But pet cemetery or Running man. Could do could do another breakout of the breakout? BRAC. Only, was directed by Stanley Kubrick period under story. All right. We're back with the NBC SNL audience in mere. Seconds. Right here on NBC sports on Peacock. NBC Sports on Peacock we stream right in the middle of the day everyday noon eastern right after Dan Patrick take you too brother from another. A fascinating story to me is playing out in Philadelphia with the eagles playing season starting out. Owen to Joey borrow common in number one overall selection Cincinnati bengals thrown it. I think it's amazing in start to he almost matched his number of number of attempts almost matched the number of touchdowns he came up with last year sixty one he had one more attempt to number of touchdowns last year. Something that bears out just another monster game you need involves the bengals. That's how great week three schedule is. and. This man knows that better than anybody else. One of the very entertaining quartet single day at seven am eastern time on NFL network in good morning football and a host of ten questions with Kyle Brandt the podcast on spotify and the ringer is guest is Steve Smith senior this week that's fun. I imagine you I stuck for that one kyle correct. You have to you have to do you coming on and I asked the Can we get into never mind the origin story of ice up son I. Know it has to do with the key to leave and the Patriots what is the legacy now and he said it's that thing that people yell at him on the streets as they're driving by in a cab. They want. Ice Up stunned by Steve Smith and I said, do they constantly come up to you and say and he says, yes but I never said anymore and I said Steve Level with me you don't say it when you're you know you need your at the restaurant and you want a little more than your water you don't say to the waiter. Stops on he says no never had steven. I. Don't believe you when you go into the training room after work out you don't say up some you get in the bath he swears no but he smiled I think he does okay. So the deep down does he they'll give the people what they want with the autograph does he do that because? As you know Steve Smith does not suffer gladly on occasion now no, we went into a long conversation rich about sometimes those people want the autograph at the restaurant at your table when you're there with your wife again, it's Valentine's Day, and there is nothing written on that autograph close to ice ice upside probably close to two words and seven letters if. He doesn't suffer fools he just not. Ready, to take in Kyle along with Steve Smith on that that pod that drops today every single Wednesday, ten questions with with kyle brandt, the ringer in spotify let's get into Let's get into the conversation of week three, the story line through two weeks. It'd be what writ large, sir, what are you talking about the most what do you think the biggest storyline so far? Two weeks. Well, it's it's we're going into this Monday night or rich, and it's it's like the things that dreams are made of we. We have chiefs ravens already, and you know we had We had the great Dan hands of you're on the NFL podcast who does the power rankings every week for NFL DOT com. And I said, we ever ever had a Monday night matchup or even Sunday night Thursday night a primetime matchup between the one and the two and your power rankings because that's where they are achieving Raymond One and two, not that I can remember incidentally rich and his thirty one and thirty two spots on the power rankings were both the jets and the giants, which is also a first in the history of those NFL dot com rankings. So there's your story lines I guess both the the Yin and Yang the smiling and the crying and theater masks where the New York. Times too, and then the chiefs and Ravens are just an aside to run this back I guess and Mahomes and Lamar continued to take over the league. So then I guess we'll, which is the best NFC team. Do you think what do you? What do you think is emerging on that front even the Saints Knock in the bucks down a peg or at least showing us that it's GonNa take some time for Brady to materialize. Is it. The saints have questions like drew brees shot like the there's no cincinnati for them to move onto certainly when he's Aaron Rodgers coming in but you know there there have been some bright spots you could even make a case for the Arizona cardinals. Would you? The. Arizona. Cardinals are great. I when when it's prediction week and everyone picks their division winners and wildcards I, I turned heads which I wasn't trying to do by predicting that the Los Angeles Rams are GonNa win the NFC west. Then everybody freaked out as if I made some outlandish pick that the Jaguars are GonNa, win the Super Bowl now, I think the rams are GonNa win the West I. Still Think it's the best division somehow it's happened rich and only one off. Year. The Sean McVeigh thing became yesterday's news. We're never mind Cincinnati were under Kingsbury where we're on we're under Shanahan, the guy who took over the leading about two years and was the greatest coach we'd ever seen at the youngest age was out now he's done. He doesn't have todd gurley anymore isn't he talked early his best to the best to players on the whole team are on defense and they're probably two of the top ten to fifteen players in the league and. They've come out with two great wins right now I don't know if anybody in America could name one of their running backs or one of their receivers maybe only because his name is cooper cop and a great name, but they don't have an MVP candidate, they don't have an offensive player of the year candidate, but I still think they have one of the best coaches in the league I love the Rams obviously I, love the packers and this has been absolutely wild rich. Because if you buy into, you know I have talked many times about the Aaron, Rodgers farewell tour revenge tour Middle Finger tour, whatever you WANNA call it. It has been glorious shock and awe display from the two of them and I. Mean it's it's it's with great malice with great pain. He is distributed to these two teams and and they look like one of the best teams in football and that Sunday night game on NBC with drew brees. The saints Of that Monday. Night loss and then the conversation by Sunday. Honestly it'll be amazing if if drew brees can even crawl. You know what I mean like. Like his his he should come out wearing depends based on the conversation that's being had about him right now and I I would not go there yesterday I won't go there. It seemed like he just took what was in front of him and even a goat who's got every damn passing record is GonNa take a while without the guy who he looks for pretty much on every snap not being there. That's the way I'm looking at drew brees. It was it was easily rich. One of the worst games ever played by quarterback who threw for over three hundred yards one touchdown one pick and was losing the offensive player of the year and almost one on the road. One of the worst games ever what what is the story line is one of these things where people just want it so bad. They want drew brees to be Hashtag washed that they're just deciding that it's happened because he threw one bad pick the picking through in that game had nothing to do with arm strength or. Virility or age you just made a bad pick. The is under the million times. We'll do it more. It's fine I. I'm not there and I take it personally because I wouldn't google this after that raiders game when I started hearing everybody's saying drew brees has done. You're exactly exactly nine days older than me. January of Nineteen, seventy, nine. So I take it very personally when someone says that he is too old and cannot do his job anymore. Personally I have a cacophony of moans and groans just the shoes right now I'm getting old. So the fact that drew brees is even out there Hawkin it around and nearly beating the raiders don't come and tell me he's washed I mean I'm washed and by the way Karl Brandt perfect timing for you talk about your age feeling older potentially than your actual age for the cacophony that you mentioned to be going on in the background WHO's not which Brandon I hear the background during this. You heard that he threw. That's young six-year-old Calvin Brent in the next room on his laptop doing home learning. Educational System you can hear in the next room. Sounds like everything's in order Great we're all buckled down and he's in their learning, what five plus four is, and if you take away three apples from nine apples, apples are left and that's what we're doing here in September twenty third twenty twenty. That's great. I'm talking to you about drew brees getting old Brian Calvin brand is probably a opening other tabs he's not supposed to open. To four year olds walking at as I'm talking to radio and television. Good afternoon football right there now. Good night football with combat evening NFL network. It's access here in the brand this afternoon it's a total excess s always, hey, everybody combat combat. then. Then let's return a little bit football and then we'll get. Our pop culture questions that we've gotten all teed up for you So the the slim margin between being. To the Chicago bears the personification of it. Clearly, if Andrea Swift clutches that ball at the end of. Week one or Daniel Jones gets a defensive pass interference instead of an offensive pass interference or find someone in the end zone. The bears could be Owen. To with CAM performing the way that he would be. Looking at so far for New England, I think would create a huge. You know what storm? I had with you back in the spring where I thought CAM would be perfect for Chicago I understand that that might wipe out the whole Trubisky, a experiment that they still are putting all of their eggs into that basket but wouldn't cam because in. CHICAGO. Right now that would be a much better to know I think if that camp showed up in Chicago, don't you think I I mean, I do you trubisky has been pretty good I mean he's he's been good Mitch You know they say that Maserati Mitch when he's he's gotta going well, but I have discovered the alias I call Miata Mitch, which is a wildly different Mitch and doesn't work as well. But we've had mostly Maserati yet tam this two completely different piece of of horsepower and I. I will never really know until years from now maybe what? Exactly the bears did in the off season and who they did did not pursue. We know there are whisperings that Nagy's quickly shuttled about that they were interested in Brady and they tried to get Brady I. It could be the exact same thing for Cam and it didn't work out. I don't know but you asked me a couple questions go what's been the biggest story of the NFL we talked about the top and the bottom cameras looked awesome. It's just awesome and week one is fine. You you had a running game plan against the dolphins and he looked like he was pretty strong and healthy, and that was great. He was being down to scores the Russell Wilson in the second half and just chucking it and shucking at the Julian atom for a hundred seventy yards and Aqeel Harry coming out of the clouds out of nowhere, and it's basically doing it with the same guys Brady wasn't doing it with last year. So cameras very scary I. I'm I'm. If I'm a bears fan and I gotta say as good as they look I'm a little scared by it as a bills fan too. You know what man? I. If if New England gets off the Mat and the manner in which we're seeing them in by automatic I, mean they looked like they were going to go into their Tom Brady? Post Tom Brady, world with Jarrett. Stidham at quarterback and instead the 2015 Cam shows up in twenty twenty. New England than any other team that at a shot at Cam and just let them sit at home until Bella check ring the phone. Has Nobody but themselves to blame especially if Bella check when he dialed up Cam Newton looked like he did on today's zoom. Did that did that piece of glorious nece occurred during the window of Good Morning, footballers at something tomorrow? But it's a, it's a piece of glorious nece. Threadbare piece that. We the he's close I. We've been talking about for twenty five years. Days look even by his standards normally it looks like he dresses out of the hamper today he was dressed like a hostage hostage shih-chi call it. He it was that that person wearing that shirt is holding up today's newspaper and saying they're treating us. Okay and giving US plenty of food and I just. A lot of people claim they don't care what people think of them. They don't care what that is not caring zero out of a trillion level of caring what you look like. Good Lord. What that thing it said it said a built established in nineteen, twenty and. The garment itself To Plod, it looks like Flintstone bill is really what it looks like to me. You know. It really. It really is like bill I think got to the zoom by using his feet under the floor of the car to get. There is what it looked like to me. You know but it also is we disgusted earlier that this is the goal in life is to is to have such a good job and be so damn good at it that. You could show up to work like that and nobody will say a word to you nobody been real by our mutual friend Paul Rudd once I asked recently I said why aren't you on twitter? Everybody's on twitter everyone of your avengers co-stars is on their every move star wh you're not. You're not on there and he goes listen man at this point in life. Just. Tell me where to stand. That's all I can tell me where I just want to do the job and go home. I'm just telling me where to stand I think ballot check that just tell me where to stand and look I aspire to get there one day me to a few minutes with Kyle brand ten questions to Cobb. Rand Paul Rudd was a guest on it. You should check it out spotify and Ringer Steve. Smith senior is the latest guest dropping today are. The poll question of how Brent? If. You don't. mind. I'm sure you're aware of this. To great movies were released on this day in separate years. One Thousand Nine, hundred, Shawshank redemption two, thousand remember the titans. What's the more rewatch -able movie I. Always remember the Titans I do and I love the movie and I, love a young Hayden penalty air just chewing up scenery as one of the daughters and Denzel of course however. There is no scene in which the players on the football team or the coaching staff. Sit there drinking icy cold Bohemian style beer like free men who could be tarring the roof or one of their own house. There's never a moment where Denzel says as Varandy he spent that break honking in the shade strange little smile on his face watching US drink his beer. Some did think he did it the favor with the gods or to make a few friends among US calms me. I believe he did it just to feel normal again if only four show. It's going to run away. and. Proof that you have rewatch that a lot house over and over. So then ask the breakout question, Chris. This is the question we have not asked yet. WE'RE GONNA post on on our on our twitter feed. We've only unpacked it just moments ago we cook this up just for you call Brennan. We're going to throw this out there to what's the Best Stephen King Adaptation into a movie shawshank redemption misery the shining and by me. Okay. My senior thesis in college was about how to make movies from books and one of the principal texts was the shining. So this is This is Princeton brick and the book by King, of course, and at the end people don't know in the book there is no. There is no hedge maze in the book and the overlook. Hotel. Actually explodes at the end of the movie and the book it's wildly different than Stephen King to not like the movie. So listen all the money is on the. Shining for me however however, that's probably the best movie. My favorite I'M NOT GONNA lie I'm sitting there Swertz Sinaga and Richard Dawson shooting looks back across the running man zoo and who do you love I love the running man. It's a guilty pleasure that I'm totally proud of the fact that the shining my favorite is mad dog Ben Richards in the running man. Okay. So let's unpack this one by one. Definitely. Your your answer not only goes by Gut Enfield but through the academic world of Princeton what did you receive on that paper that you wrote? The. Only eight minuses I didn't proof read and I had typos and stuff like that. Job Even Princeton men do not proofread how about that. Okay. Now then. Word adaptation is is in the eye of the beholder I mean who? WHO, better than I mean you WanNa talk about going toe to toe of my vision my vision Stephen King versus Stanley Kubrick is definitely sort of the heavyweight fight that you want and I I. Know Stephen King might not have liked the adaptation but that is Kubrick's version of Stephen King I mean, how do you? How do you not give that the winner just because? It's Kubrick adapting it, and the way he did adapt it that that's the winner to me. It's really good it and apparently the scene when Jack going after shelley and she's got the Bat and trying to hit them apparently rich Kubrick did like like seventy six takes of that saint to the point where the actors were having an actual mental breakdowns and I think on take seventy-six they finally got it from what I've read King not terribly welcome. was going to visit and Kubrick not really interested in it king also I think there was acrimony. That also ended up in the script and the movie I love it I, absolutely. Love it. But rich don't me. You don't have a soft spot for the running. Excuse me Kyle. Kyle. This is how soft my spot is for the running man. The pleasure is not guilty. It's guilty as charged pleasure I. Don't I I am an unabashed lover of that film because part of me. Not. Only loves Schwarzenegger movies but of me also what always I born to give away on the planet Chris Brockman Cash and prizes? So the fact that Richard Dawson Is a protagonist in this film giving away at one point home versions of the running man to fans in the audience of a game show turned a dystopia. Is To me with Jim Brown, and through believe he was still Jesse the body Ventura prior. Governor. The mind venture. And three words at the time of my life that I will never forget. Maria can Cheetah Zo. Hello that's it. Rip The KNOB off whenever the running man is on Kyle how does that impact for an answer? Maria Alonzo in the role of Miss Amber. And it's Jesse. The Body Ventura asking the questions are you ready for pain? Are you ready for suffering if the answer is yes. Then you're ready for Captain Freedoms Workout and boy was already all my Gosh it's the Best I love that movie I'll be back only interest. Men. Dodd. Scott. Remember them. Maui. Whitman price in. Oh my gosh. Call. Nine one year whitman price in her diet was. Sean. Price in a dod finish tile how did they finish. We took dominic. Davis on the first round on the Texans and it ended just like the real whitman prices. In the fantasy son I think in ended. The. Koto. How do we not even mention code the future? Alonzo. Moseley FBI of my favorite comedy. Thank you for the call. Kyle is always. Just a pure joy. Thank you. Let's chat again next week. Remember all work. No play make rhys adult boy. That's right too many takes jack very angry. That's it. Right there. Brand combat everybody. Fun. Stuff man. and so. What is our poll question. By the way, get his podcast today, spotify and ringer. What is the poll question right now shawshank verse remember the Titans for the more watchable movie. Shawshank leads fifty, five, forty five right now. Okay. Kuptana Buoy just told me. I. Don't know if this is funny or not. But the running man was set in the year two, thousand nineteen. You know what I mean. By the way in truth I was kind of wondering if the running man was appropriate to show my kids. Because the taggers in ultimate tag are like straight out of the running man. Okay. Your kids running man not yet right? Definitely. Not if they're freaked out by police I know they can't see the running man but but the the you know the if you will bad guys in ultimate tag or like straight out of the running man without the actual Ma'am right.

Farve was Tampa and Charles Woodson was in Las Vegas and I'm in studio here in Los Angeles, and we're have a great show football show for you tonight on epochs at nine eastern time we're back with the quad cast and just a mere matter of seconds. Eight, four, four, two, four, rich is the number dial. We'll take your phone calls right here during this segment. As. We always do Chris Brockman you've got a news update coming up at the top of the next hour. Correct going on. All right. There's lots going on in our sport in the real world as well. eight, four, four t here. Let's go to in Los Angeles what's up learning. Hey. Matt, how're you doing how you been? Sad Day was CHICAGOANS Gale Sayers is the best running back I've ever seen. I'm my father screaming at the television. When I was a little boy watching. Barry Sanders is the closest I've ever seen give their. In Gil here's did it on the mud? In the bad services. A Wrigley Field in many of the stadiums in the national football league. He's just he's a great guy met him when I was a kid. Just, Wow, dude, I'm like. I woke up with that news is just twenty twenty is just not the. Is, it started with Kobe and it won't stop I. It's just not the man but I want all of you guys. The you to. A video by NFL films. They call it pro football. Pro Football. Sport in America. Is the greatest sport America's. Teaches us how to get along with each other. Is He. To work together. That's how life should be. About Football team. I'm sorry for your loss and you're being such a big fan of gale sayers and I think you're also talking about what's going on in the real world and I, appreciate you calling in Lonnie callback for sure. He's ride. He's right. The locker room certainly in the NFL is an organism, it's a unit, it's something that needs to be. Together as one and. You know we definitely saw wouldn't. Everything was going on in the first blush of the shooting of Jacob Lake and what an fell teams were. Expressing, an NBA teams were missing. that. That the unity that was being shown by these teams was something to hopefully emulate. That's why the Boeing that was heard. Coming from portions of the stands in Kansas City was particularly disappointing because it will. All it was was just a show of unity. It was nothing else being done except a show of unity. There was nothing on the field. Except guys. With arms locked. And again, what what lawn is mentioning as well as news just breaking out of Louisville Jefferson. County. Grand. Jury. Has indicted one of the officers involved in the death of Brianna Taylor. To other officers involved in the Death of Brianna Taylor not indicted at all. One was a detective. He's already been fired diet indicted on three counts of first degree, wanton endangerment which based on from what I'm reading is. A about the bullets that were fired placed. The Neighbors, Brianna. Taylor. In. Jeopardy. So, technically, this grand jury has just returned. Nothing. In regards to the actual death of Brianna Taylor. And those who have been waiting for justice and the murder of somebody was killed in her own home. Are Now left with nothing. And all I will say, is this I I? Just want everything to be peaceful. In. Whatever protests that will occur to be peaceful and non-violent? I think that's part of what lawn was just saying. It's WANNA. Bring. Some of the real world into what's going on and I'm I'm imagining I don't know what's going to happen. With game four of tonight's. NBA. Eastern Conference finals you know the NBA Platelet mid many NBA players who Have, not spoken about sports at all in. Their. Post game. Commentary. Many of them talking about justice for Briana Taylor, and again today the Grand Jury Jefferson County. Three counts of wanton endangerment. So again, what that means from what I'm reading in just first blush during the commercial break is that this grand jury looked at everything and said, let's hold this officer. Accountable for endangering the lives of others. But nothing about ending the life of Brianna Taylor. which is beyond comprehension. I don't. I. Don't get that. I'm not sitting in a grand jury room Donald All the evidence in front of you, but it's just mind boggling and and I'm sure many many athletes will have the same reaction. So keep an eye on all of that is the NFL NFL's about to play Thursday night football tomorrow night week three the NBA Eastern Conference finals game four is tonight game. Four of the Western Conference finals is tomorrow night. And my eyes are open in my ears are peeled or my is repealed in my ears are open. About how players might react to that? Eight four four two, zero, four rich is the number to dial here on the show Jeff. Daniels is coming up in our third and Final Hour I. Love this man's work he is I guess if I'm you know you're talking about somebody's performance like this the word sublime after us that. he is playing Jim Komi in the Komi rules on showtime. And and that's airing on Sunday night. He's diehard Lions Fan. So kinda hit on all that we're GONNA hit the pause button in this commercial break come back for our third hour. We just had a lot of fun with Carl Brandt of Good Morning Football Charles Woodson is going to be part of tonight's NFL. The grind by the way that footage of Brett farve showing up at the Tampa, game. That some players Tampa were wondering what's Brett Farve doing here because I can't even have my own family or he was a correspondent us working. Even though the Tom Brady Tampa Bay t shirt might allow that. But Hey, compared to bill belichick that's like a three piece suit.

Easton so that was last hour and then I'll I I just WanNa hit this real quick Chris and I know it's part of your news updates Ronco is and last week for NFL the grind he was at that Thursday night game last week he's on tonight show Charles Woodson was on an hour number one the special live report rock men with the new and it's brought to you by the twenty twenty honest Civic Lana Always Fund civic sedan the Sporty Civic Coupe spacious civic hatchback there's something for every phrase I I hadn't heard these terms before yeah hitches with stress you know under duress under duress pushed so much stress on the pitch homerun sobriety surviving a two run I on on Shir Zor sure Zor was throwing those what are they calling the stressed pitches now and it will what's the if he can get through the individual period it's only Wednesday so are you saying he's saying that there's there's a chance that he actually plays each throw no no no just the pressure situations like it's easy to throw a ball with nobody on base with two guys on I don't know that game had everything they wanted last night style so head to your local Honda dealer and find the civic for you today this is fresh this happened and Commercial Break Patrick Mahomes is going to practice today Oh i apologize but we could just get to the news then man said your lead I it's gotTa be your lead item Patrick Mahomes with it on the game Sunday night we will and I mean it is is maybe we should call Al is Al Michael somewhere like sacrificing a steak from the take on Aaron Rodgers and under the lights so if mahomes comes back it doesn't miss any time except two and a half quarters in I don't know how that works can't play less than a week after dislocating your kneecap can't do it first of all two things one Denver is that even wise obviously they wouldn't put them out there if there if it was unwise I think a lot of this is just kind of gamesmanship with Asto Toscano in front of a candle or something is he is he is everyone doing it definitely whatever whatever whatever food dish she sacrificing up to the how much does it take to prepare for Matt Moore with the ultimate of respect I mean okay all right fair and turns of in in terms of preparing for mahomes the packers do it every week 'cause the homes is technically Aaron Rodgers two point Oh lefthanded push through they might not do that but I don't know what the banana and the tailpipe would really be four and two how about Charles Woodson talking about when I met of leadership is what it Charles kind of paraphrase I thought that was interesting mahomes might place football God's definitely does not have vegetables I understand that Matt Moore still going to take most of the I I got I got it home does it need to take any first team reps to step out there Sunday night into him about are the packers super bowl team he's not like oh yeah Rogers could take him wherever he wants he talks about the defense that takes the pressure off of him and that's why we're all surprised now in week seven that Aaron Rodgers is an MVP candidate well I mean I don't think anybody they see they see they practice against it they might not practice against a no look throw they might not practice against Dairies Smith has taken over the defense to the point where he feels like he's got a captain on the other side of the ball that's handling the business of the packers the game making them have to prepare just in case long like like how `bout how `bout on Rogers talking about the thing that makes him feel great is that he sees leadership qualities on the defensive side of the ball Sunday night come on his kneecap was on the side of his leg right they stay they moved back we on the field in play we had Travis Kelsey on Monday show he's he's never seen in kneecap in the position on a leg the way that he saw on mahomes his leg when they pulled but that sounded to me like a guy that's beginning to see the gold watch the tunnel right leverage jedi mind tricks that is one of the most brilliantly passive aggressive soliloquies I've heard in quite some time added indication that they're gonna now suddenly play for a different team I don't know wouldn't you think Tom would need a place to stay if he's playing for the New England Patriots next year the people off of the pile yes okay damarcus where it will join us he was in the stadium no okay what he got our three so Adam Schefter creatine situation but I've been in because I think when you commit to a team you know for certain amount of years you kind of feel like you're responsible twenty years and I'm playing on a great team and it's just been a credible twenty years of my life and say Mr Kraft's I don a lot in there that's a that's an honest man that sounds like an honest man and if he does want to play wake up and it's been amazing and I look back and normally it's just like I'll think about it at the end of the road not like you know I don't have to think about the end of the road right now there's only one scenario schefters conjuring something up or creating something come on now come on now that does not sound like guys like I don't know where he's has his weekly appearance on WBZ in Boston was asked about all of that Salty Party of lawn salty party of one been hanging out with you all week stuff here with Tom Brady but the house is being up for sale what do you mean concrete and stuff he's reportings what are you saying the somebody please their house up for sale is not fences terrific saying I know you WanNa talk about how I'm sitting here like oil Charles Woodson talk about how great the team is in Green Bay and he's talking about the defense we could see the same damn thing in New England Appel unbelievable they're doing stuff not even the eighty five bears I know did be tough to leave I here's all I'm going to say on this because it is is Charles Woodson said last hour total speculation okay but I will say this you can't sit here and say Jonathan Coachella trek and that's so much successful dream country so I don't you know one day I'll wake up and I feel like okay that's that'd be those things right now what a great soundbite that was I mean that was just tremendous doc I like to do it I'll have to explain it to cooper he'll be so heartbroken well it's all because Tom Brady might leave the Patriots what dad thought that this would be the case now especially with the way the season started for them their offense broke created all he's saying again in case you doing how and when that day comes that they come and I don't know if the after this year you know I don't know it'll be five years simple but I don't have to determine raced to always put fill the contract you know for me I'm just it's been good 'cause I'm just taking it day by day and I'm joined but I had am I wrong thick always forty of course I don't make sense watches incoming Free Nice round number of twenty years and you know one day I don't know what the future holds painting the day part is you know for me but all at this point is all the time I never expected to play Ross who I mean if you wanted to name at the time when he was acquired by the cubs right yeah it was just a cigar to catch John Lester actually right from I have made any decisions I haven't real no no no no no no there is some comedian Bob Kraft probably some

O. dot com slash. I haven't been able to travel back for too many games but I I'm hoping to actually get out to The Rams game at the end of next month I just did this nightmare nightmare cody Kesslers quarterback in the patriots dad is it possible aches or is that what that that'd be my wife really do what he does best it's it's it's incredible to watch him we got I mean having Marcus Peters there is a great ad now hopefully get that secondary healthy Ingram's you you really got a chance to see what kind of work he was doing in the opposite you know when when when you saw the last games last year where you know some things uh-huh what don't do that to yourself by the way Tom Brady might leave watch what what did that to your boys the wake me up three in the morning fourteen points to different times and lost bright though anything's possible at that stadium and and definitely would be a challenging week hopefully goodbye Rams Ravens into the next next month in La there's also one that's coming up against the Patriots and a couple of weeks now now the danger is the individual who's one at all has it all and still stays at it because it's not enough because of that bought that fire that is someone who's been told he can't and think Lamar Jackson Falls into that category you agree with that I mean about one hundred percent and honestly I think he fell off you know he's more comfortable in the pocket mega throw his throws accurate the guy's got wheels you know so it's like plus you have all the weapons that he does Michael Phelps twenty three time Olympic gold medalist is here and the rich as you don't have them over there Mike he's on there is honored guest line you got him over there he is Michael Phelps here on the rich Eisen show what's up Michael Eighty he's the greatest of all time so I mean he's he's dangerous we've had we've had I think one game over the last five years where we were up they're going to be tough but honestly I think just just because of the history that we've had an especially at New England ah that next year that different level you know it's always fun being around athletes who who are great whether Payton or Brady or we've been around each other times obviously the under armor connection But no I mean I think I think the greats like the best of the best there is Michael that what goes into the desire to keep going isn't just about a pride or professionalism it's about family sir sure does might shake things up Michael Phelps here and the rich Eisen show another athlete type that we mentioned at the top of our show that's particularly dangerous is you know any anybody like that because it's always for me it's always interesting to see how they work always fun to see what their you know supergun how about or how they're taking care of their body or you know what little things they're doing every day to make everything count you know so I think that's that's just something and hopefully the defense can get to brady that's something that that that offensive line does so well and and his His Jersey stays pretty clean the U. and Brady have have you ever had a conversation with Brady about that very subject Michael Don't think we've ever dove into anything like that getting back in the pool last time I know I I don't think it had anything with me anything to do with me getting back into the pool I think it was it's about kids maybe being old enough to see mom or dad still do it and I'm wondering maybe that's part of the reason with Brady kids are getting older and being able to enjoy them we just showed a photograph of Brady holding his beautiful daughter up on the podium last year did that have anything to do with you I I love being around great athletes were similar but we're also very different and it's tough for folks to kind of conceive earns inside it's so rare brady has it and it seems like you have that as well or did have that my question to you is us it's it's fun watching him kind of come into his own you know have you met him Michael Phelps have you met I have not no I matt anything is possible I think we can beat them I honestly their defensive sneaky good this year and obviously Brady's one for your fifty percent off welcome bonus or text bet now two two three eight six six nine that's b. e. t. and W. two two three eight six six nine show many similarities I think that we all have and the similarities that we have are things that are unteachable you know kind of it's always funny listening to that because I hearing that question because I I think Chris I think c. p. said to me he was like trust me like your kids are GonNa be like daddy how come you're not out I I I think it was really awesome and also if you look at Tiger to tiger that you know this this year being able to come back and win the masters and and you know have his Goto Pittsburgh Yeah I mean I could talk forever about the I know I know that's why I wanted to start with this and it's interesting is there to to be able to witness him still do that it's something that's so cool and and you know it's GonNa feel pretty incredible for for the DADS to be able to prove that to their kids you know I guess I do Kinda feel bad for the other two in a way house Youtube Michael There's youtube for that don't worry but they're like what are you doing how come how come you can't get out there and compete at that level I it's it's it's GonNa be a wild guess thing to realize if if we all do go to Tokyo next year and they're like Dad I used on top of the key you know being able to so my last Olympics with our first born you know was incredible and I never thought I would have that moment but title rather it's been too long since we've talked I know I know it has been Glenn I'm I'm better for talking to you I wanna get WanNa get right in the time Olympic gold medalist here on the rich Eisen show what are your plans for Japan Tokyo in Two thousand twenty what do you plan on doing that onto Sean hard work and dedication is and to show them what what happens when you do you know put a bunch of time into something that you're passionate about Michael Phelps twenty three answers some questions and potentially make some money along the way from all of us here at podcast one thank you for being a dedicated listener you don't know which Ohio state is it's the Ohio State Okay Michael From Michigan don't say that you know we will we say the school name it's no big deal to us you know we're not like school down south or you know that's like you know t t use US or whatever like we don't so it's kind of fun to be able to religious see these young up and comers but also seeing all come together we don't you know or DDS we don't we could say it you know what I'm San I hear you I hear you let's get into what doubt but being able to spend four years there has risen credible I wish a better football adult this is gonna be I mean I think honestly I think I would take if we could win only one game you know looking back at some of the photos from my first Olympics I was actually in a Michigan hat back then so it was kind of weird how everything works what's really important obviously our planets and making sure that we save it as best we possibly can what is the fifth annual imagine a day without great swing program and and a new head coach they're very well so for me it was just a so it really was a dream actually to be able to do that only on live TV and radio but it's the Ohio State Okay Michael it's Dior because we don't want to confuse them with an Ohio state right it could just be just to be able to be there at that stage would be very very excited how did a kid from Baltimore get to Ann Arbor Michael I've always wanted to ask you that question obviously you're smart but that that goes without saying to that moment where I get to see these guys with all the heart of these these men and women who have put all this hard working time into something that's so important to them and so challenging the have my own some line and and now being able to kind of hand select the Dream Team so you will and you know kind of help them be able to accomplish whatever goals and dreams they have announced and it'd be over the last three years that we've been doing this it's we don't we're working on trying to get the exact numbers but it's GonNa be pretty pretty sweet and pretty I I guess it's hard to put into words because it's something that I have jumped about so long and I'm just looking forward you think about everything you do in a day without water life would be even more difficult than it is right now so you know I think it's something that's so simple for hard as it always is but hopefully we're not so far out of it by that time and and hopefully we can pull the team together and pump the C How they come come back after that loss and and are able to battle against a great team like Notre Dame me to Michael but I look I don't mean to correct you sir water what is this about Michael Phelps well think about the question what like think about a day without water that's not rushing and T- that snow washing no it is over fifty billion gallons of water that we've been able to save in three years and yes that's a ton of water but we need to do more we need to stay on top of it it is to pay attention to something that is shown needed for everyday life and if we can conserve as much as we can by turning off the faucet thank being going to Michigan but how did you wind up with that connection when your coach says if I take a coaching job will you come with me and just being conscious about it I think it's something that's so important yeah every drop counts dot colgate dot com to learn about more created by the US water get clean water because we see this problem already occurring so you know for me I'm I'm honestly trying to help people understand how important lines and its value of water campaign A Michael How often you get in the pool with your kids do you do it or you're just like you know Dad Dad's had enough of that to watch and and you know to for me as a kid growing up you know looking at Jordan and what he did with the Jordan brand with something that I wanted to do in the sort of summit being my kids are boomers in the water almost every day okay I'm not in the water with him every day somebody all of these small things so they're gonNa make a big difference for the future because what if what if there is a day where nobody in the world is able to turn on their faucet and does you're not gonNa have any coffee there's no water brush your key so it's like Monday night before how about this one San Francisco about that Raven last year on imagine a day without water the fifth fifth annual version of that at Michael Phelps on twitter at 'em underscore Phelps double zero he's fearless and and he's extremely comfortable and confident in the water and that's something that is very incredible to see as a dad because going crazy and splashing around well Michael it's great seeing you being a dad you know obviously America's watched you grow up serve and you know being a father of three now correct and tells me to go or swim butterfly or three styles the always likes that but but I think one thing as a data I'll say watching him in the Pool oh I want it to be Ohio state more than anything that's what I wanted to do well so we'll we'll see that game is going to be uh-huh struggled I know how it works yeah that's that is very challenging the weekend and week out I know Notre Dame man this is lots of jump on board to turn the water off when you're when you're brushing teeth you know something literally as simple as that will save sixty four glasses and can save up to forget it's scary as the pool is it's an absolute amazing place and and you know it brings a gigantic smile every time he's in there awesome okay that's one one way to do it but I I I always wanted to go to Michigan Michigan was always something that you know they they always had wants to super bowl matchup to winless teams putting zeroes in Noah.

She can state this weekend and obviously a development that came out of the blue not only to NFL fans but apparently to NFL executives and front the Office Scouts and general managers and also the subject of the workout himself Colin Kaepernick is having an NFL coordinated workout for all thirty the two teams whoever wishes to come and check them out and interview him as well. That'll be on Saturday in the right Christopher correct so we'll see Charles has to think about that. Jason Start freshly it Inducted if you will into the Baseball Hall of fame and museum in Cooperstown New York the spink award winner. He'll be joining us in the third hour to talk about what's going on with the Astros Edwards your first up we have ourselves the head coach of the number one overall team in the nation. Not only early atop the Associated Press Poll but the College Football playoff rankings. No shock there. LSU's number one tigers and then number two. The the Ohio state undefeated then number three as supposed while they were spanking. NC State over their collective knee clemson no longer outside looking in. I don't believe they will be spending a day this year outside looking in until December twenty eighth when they will play play in the college football playoffs barring something totally unforeseen like maybe a mediocre hitting the planet and then number four is Georgia with Alabama on the outside looking in and sure enough I see I see teams with With an all on the right side of the dash in their record that Further down the road. Sorry Minnesota you're not in for the first time since nineteen o four but you're behind the team With the loss in Alabama which just gave up forty six points at home for the first time since one thousand nine hundred seven and Oregon your PAC twelve leaders right now and Utah Your PAC twelve. I guess co-leader right now. y'All so there's Minnesota sitting there at nine and all just in front of the team. They beat in Penn State. All and there's Baylor there's Baylor let me see all down thirteen. And they are. They needed overtime. A few of the. BTC You but they're undefeated is a matter of fact sitting thirteen Baylor's power five team correct. Last I checked correct. That's the lowest ranked power five team at nine and better in the era. If you will the the vast I college football playoff era now. They play Oklahoma this week in Texas the following week but would that be enough even to pop them into the top four. I doubt it because the way I'm seeing this Christopher my colleague across the aisle if you will to use the phrase of the day the way I'm CNS UNIS is they are setting up Alabama to make it. They're setting up Alabama to make it and they're sitting up on the to make it over. Lsu I guess if Georgia beats him thanks so what that Pasuk. That'd be possible that Lsu makes the SEC championship chip game loses to Georgia. If Georgia spanks him and then Alabama sneaks in because they're five meaning somebody slips out of that top four don't they and I can't see Lsu if say they run the table and then lose to Georgia and SEC title. I can't see them being ahead of Alabama. I see them going to four at the worst. So then why put Alabama five. Why Not Oregon in front of it because at least Oregon would be able to? Oh sneak in as a PAC twelve champion or Utah just be Utah and Oregon and five and six respectively not behind Alabama. Not where. You're waiting in line well. I think any dispute that Alabama's not a top five team in the country you. I don't think Oregon's top five Alabama just lost barely to the number one team but this is not about. WHO's a top five team and you deserve to be a top five team? This is about who should play a for all the marbles and we have or I know but when you put somebody at five that means you're the first one out which means technically used to be the first one in when somebody buddy falls out and if Ohio state and Clemson went out which many people are expecting them to do I then then. LSU LSU and Georgia one of them will have to lose right because they're gonNA play each other in the SEC championship game most likely and if if that happens d. just swap Georgia and Lsu and you tell Alabama. Thanks for the memories and you do the same thing to the PAC. Twelve champions who are one of whoever wins that PAC twelve game will have one loss and a championship in their back pocket. Sorry Lsu just means more to them because because they're in the SEC and their won loss was Georgia and they beat the beep Christine Todd in their home field. That's why I'm saying when you put Alabama there this. This is what you're communicating. I don't care that they won't take it as an affront that they're not as good as Oregon or they're not as good as UTAH. They're not a top five team. We're setting things things up for how this plays out depending on what happens in the top. Four yes Mrs Setting Up Alabama to replace is Georgia at four and then Oregon is like oh you were so close. That's what I think. Lsu Beats Georgia Sec Alabama's in or we can have top eight and we're all sitting here. Saying how Penn State Oklahoma Florida Auburn and Baylor crack in there. And play it all out out. See you think those those bottom for really have a chance to beat. LSU On any given on any given Saturday come you. Why not and? Let's see one of these one of these teams go on the run and and and that's what I'm talking about here now. You could make the same you could make the case is that it makes Lsu Alabama's game means intense and important because the loser still knows that they're in the top eight and and that makes the regular season less intense in the same way that I just came on the air and said Hey. Congratulations tall you Evansville. Fans and Kentucky now coach Cal can use this to just just peel the paint off the walls and get these kids on the straight narrow knowing that you know. When Marshall's around they'll still be this affect their ability to be a one seed when the selection committee comes up with WHO's the top seeds in all four regions for the AA tournament? You know so so i. I don't want to create a playoff system that does take some of the starch out of the regular season but I still would rather have the conversation today. Hey Oklahoma Baylor. That's huge because the losers out. Hey you know what's also. Huge is Penn State Ohio state because Penn state would get themselves into the top eight. Ohio state might not fall out but they would against Michigan. Hey you know what also auburn has a shot here. What if Auburn Beats Alabama Mba? They both have two losses. The Iron Bowl means that means more now Wisconsin taking on Minnesota later on this month. I mean I could go on and on and on about how there are still important games to get into the bottom four of the top eight. And how if the top four and the the bottom for the difference there is the top forget a home game an actual real life home game. LSU would get a real live home game in Baton Rouge against. I say the eighth seeded team to kick off the College Football playoff the week before Christmas with all due respect to my friends of the NFL. But just announced a triple header on Saturday before Christmas in week. Sixteen that's all on the NFL network at work. Wouldn't you want also see that weekend filled with College Football playoff games that matter come on now. Eight four four zero four. which is the number to Dow? And then there's the issue of the Houston Astros. What a heck of a few weeks? They've had Hong and interestingly enough coming off of their world series loss in which they were rightfully taken to task for the manner in in which they handled the non firing and then firing of assistant general manager Brandon Tall Man who went all caveman in the locker room in front of female members of the press and how they handled that and then didn't handle it and then handled it off of that world series in which they almost one on but lost by losing every home game now we find out the year that they want it. They had a camera in Centerfield of their home. Stadium out there in minute. Minute maid somebody out there in a porn ice glass of juice with pulp in minute maid and Training Camera. Right in the If you will Nether Nether region of the catcher trying to see the wiggling of the fingers and anytime the wiggle of the fingers which normally means an off speed pitch would occur. You'd hear a bang in the dugout from the Astros dugout. Presumably a noise made by somebody who was watching via I guess closed caption caption feed of the Centerfield Camera. Showing the signs in a on a television set or television screen in the Dugout Ali. You hear the Bang to let Badger. No I guess would here over the crowd noise than an off off speed pitchers coming which is an outrageous twisting of the rules. That if you ain't cheating you ain't trying. I don't Major League. Baseball does about this now. In all fairness the Astros had a better record on on the road that year than they did at home. How about that and I don't know how that system would work in the postseason because you can't even hear yourself? I think in that stadium let alone hearing the pounding of dugout roof with a bat or wall. I guess if it's the roof that would be particularly galling for Yankee fans who lost the American League Championship series that year. 'cause we all know that that's a Brett Gardner move but he does that. In full scope to tell the umpires they suck not try and go ahead and cheat the system. Jeff Liu now general manager of the moment boy. He's had a great month. This guy here. He was yesterday but just in time this. This news comes out Just in time for the general managers to have a meeting and for Lou now to be available to the media for a scrum. Here's what he had to say. Were you aware of any of this of these allegations going on at all just yes or no I mean specifically. I'm not I'm not going to get into exactly what I knew. Anybody new at this point So I'm worried it's going to have to wait and and NC what I'm sure there will be a appropriate time to will answer that question directly. I'm not trying to avoid it I just think at this point We Are you know we're going to investigate it and figure out what the facts are are and then we'll respond after that. Are you concerned this muddy. The reputation of what has been the greatest success in the history of the franchise. I hope it doesn't. We have a lot of good players. We have a really good manager manager. We've got a great fan base and we've accomplished a lot and I think that stands for itself hopeful that we'll find out exactly what happened and It woke we'll address if there's something to be addressed in and we can move on. I mean we've got the the reason we won the world series in twenty seventeen. Is Jose Altuve. And now it's Bragman and justice airliner a lot of great players and They do things the right way. And we as an organization association. That's what we aspire to do as well. I think what we just heard was an announcement of a new assistant. General Manager named Gobble de Gook that sounds like a red handed individual caught with a bunch of Mike phones around. I mean we're not GonNa get into what I knew. And what what we all knew. But we're we're going to let you know and I'm not trying to avoid it even though I'm absolutely avoiding it. Oh my word. What is baseball do about this? We'll discuss about it. First of all I think the the the the astor's needed to find some form of a draft choice of significance at least absolutely at least an a ton of money and some people need to lose their gigs. Because I don't need to be sitting here watching Major League baseball all thinking is this thing's totally stilted because of technology where not everything's reviewable okay. So teams are using technology analogy to cheat but baseball. Sometimes we'll just not use technology to actually get a call right. Come on and you know. You've got some very definite ideas. Chris that might let a phone line up but a phone lines GONNA light up from Baton Rouge Louisiana coming up in a few minutes. WanNa get to coach. Oh on time. What's our poll question?

Id LSU watches the final seconds. Roll off the clock. You're fighting Tigers of Lsu forty-six Alabama forty one go tigers. That's odd that the radio network announcer would punctuate touchdown call spot on imitation of coach at origin. Over the drop that we play here it is. He's one of our favorite ever guests. These fresh off of beaten Alabama. He's at orange around back here on the rich Eisen show. How are you coach? What do you say well you know what I'm better for talking to you coach? I'll be very honest liddy at very honest with you I just Wanna I just WanNa get some some sort of sense from you few days later what this win means for you in the program at useful useless football players They've worked very hard to beat out about them. Just sort of stayed in Louisiana eight years we had to here. You're in every time I wanted to convenience store. Grocery store got gassed go. You gotTa beat Alabama false so I just felt proud. The football players all the players that have played here before. And you come off the plane. And there's the governor John Bel Edwards extended his. I I mean not what straight up the flow chart their coach being there. LSU means a lot to the state of Louisiana. The governor was a lot bigger SAM's chores Soares's wife they have a great family. We're close friends and bendy thousands of people wait. Posted airport will preserve a bit. Yeah we saw the video of Of Borough going down the line through the chain link fence and he is just Obviously taken the opportunity that you afforded him A couple of years ago and run with it. When did he first appear on your radar screen coach? We looking for graduate transfer quarterback black bill. Bush was at Ohio state You that he was gonNA transfer so we started in the right way. Try to get in touch with Joe. Wouldn't he could get dumped with him. Where recruit them brought them over here and worked out? Thank God sure did and what did you realize about him the first time you got. I'm on a a practice field intelligence first time. About what a minute. Football League Jovan Social Mores Coach's son very intelligent and then when he came to practice deal we had a sixty one ten Run he he want everyone. He was dirty competitive. Get outta work hard and under respecting the team Eh. Ordure on here on the rich Eisen show and now so much being made of of The offense The passing coordinator Joe Brady has brought in. I'm from I guess in a way the New Orleans Saints was there any concern on your part about injecting that into the system of metal matal unusual needs to do a new two players that we have with athletes put myspace. We had a quarterback he's GonNa put together a tremendous us. Believe it or not we just get started so when you said you knew what you had to do Walk me through that. What did you have to do based on what you are seeing being From your program school waiting to get better off has to be able to score points to be Alabama's to beat the Georgia's to beat the Florida's we go to spread offense but I've leases space and give him the ball and Let me talk about a couple of things here. First things first couple times I'm sitting at home during that game are and I'm thinking they got to take the air out of the ball and then you got you know Edwards running it So well it was so difficult to stop him. But your offense is no chill. I mean you're you're snapping. The ball like thirty seconds left on the play clock coach. You're not sitting there thinking. Let's let's take the ball a little bit here. No we got to score what points. We're not going to school points. This league especially when they have a quarterback like do a the receivers that they have they can strike as we see anywhere. We're we'RE GONNA keep the pedal to the metal the whole game but I mean the pedal to the metal can also be snapped like ten five seconds right. I mean you put that all together in your ear leaving like a minute left on the clock lot for someone to even the score but we also want to run the school more points. Just talk show. We thought like we haven't scored more points. And that's what we I WANNA do. You put up forty six Tuscaloosa which somebody nobody's done since one thousand nine hundred seven at Orange Iran Lsu head coach here on the rich Eisen show. What about Joe? Brady's future so much is being discussed already. Even though he's under contract for two more years where does that. What does that conversation staff? Well we all know Joel has a bright future. We'll keep them here as long as we can. We're going to compete. We ought to people that have come after them are already talked right now. Joe Brady. He's in better. He didn't have a phone with. He's looking at Ole Orbis coverages and wanted to be about culture years while in terms of Moving on and and keeping things going And I guess shutting cutting out all the praise and the noise that does come with being number one overall off a big win. Nick Sabin calls that rat poison. I'm wondering if you you have a term for coach I call it a blackout the Noise Donald that tweety machine blackout the most. But the way we get to work today is turnover was. We're going to focus in on our practice focus. It'll get better from yesterday. Focused on the fundamentals do believe we have great leadership and great coach out teams. We get the job done so wait a minute because our last conversation that we had coach. You said that there was tell the truth. Monday at Ellison correct. Okay so now. There's what is Wednesday. What is Wednesday? Called Turtle Boise. Yesterday was competition Tuesday. Okay so oh I thought it was TACO Tuesday. There's no doubt down in Cajun country so so okay so so it's it's tell the truth. Monday competition Tuesday competition Tuesday and then turned over. What's Thursday no repeat Thursay Okay and then focus? Friday and Saturday's Game Day and Sunday is just tillack Sunday. What is Sunday Sunday Day? Also little neighbor day of rest. What was what was the so what truth was told Monday did were there Ernie month did you? Did you buy we tell the truth Monday this past Monday. Yeah well the truth was it was a great team win but we didn't plan Lsu Stanton underperformance for sixty minutes and we still have a ways to go to get to the team that we want to be and you know I say this I I feel like we have a report coach in and you take this in the right way. It does seem though that it could have been tell the truth Saturday. Based on some of the video we heard from your speech to the not get emotional on the game. I know so What emotions were flowing through you to say what we all heard you say what speeches sometime you say? Thank within the family. You expect them to stands inside the families. I trust that. I should've never get out. That was not that anybody and now that was not that for the public. That was just menthol football team right. And did you speak to the young man who has I guess to use your phrase took to the twitter machine to do to say something like that. Sure he made a mistake in the end the Senate and we move we move forward from it. Okay and let's be honest though. I mean Alabama kind of feels the same way about so you. Wouldn't you say result. That is a great answer. I'll be very honest with you. So there's a lot of conversation to a about a borough and I want to just put a pin in that to revisit an a couple minutes we have left and I want to focus on this kid from baton rouge it runs the football for you primarily number twenty two Clyde Edwards air. What an amazing performance this kid put on tape the whole country watching it? Also that's for the future but for the moment for your program. What does it mean for you to have a kid from Baton Rouge do that? Walk me through your relationship chat with him as a lot. I chance to recoup that have a great relationship with him has tremendous character heart. He's a team leader. He's unselfish player but he's very driven very driven a lot of ways. I thought everybody was there walks in the room. You six four to seventy the type of personality mindset. He has. I'm so happy for him and his family. And do you tell the kids before the game. I mean I talk to Brag Nasty. Recall all the game and and he gave me a little bit of a hint. Here do you talk to your kids about. The next level sang in a game like this. The scouts are going to be watching more than ever. I mean we've had Mike Mayock my colleague from the NFL network. Now at the raiders. We had also less week from From Espn Todd mcshay. They're saying that's the first date they put on when they're GONNA evaluate is this game. LSU LSU Alabama. Do you bring the subject with your players you know. I think we talk dome individually. We may talk to him as a position goes but as a head coach I I just talked about the team and what we have to do well but I do know as a position. Coach always used that as a motivation. And is it true that some of your players went up to recruits that were there for Alabama and told them after the game Wanted you check us out. Is that true story. That happened on video so I guess through Ooh Man. We're all just paying rent in your world right now and then last thing for you on borrow the converse the words you know it's interesting you're passing coordinators name is Joe Brady because that is a nickname a lot of people are using right now. 'cause of how cool and calm and collected ed your quarterback Looks distributing the football knowing where it should go PRI snapping delivering. It post NAP like Tom Brady. Do you think that that is a fair or accurate accurate comparison at Georgia. You know what I see on. TV reminds me a lot of them up. Tom I don't know personally but motor when it hasn't been a big shoes to fill but joe is all Tom Brady does a great job for us. We believe in coach. L. congrats on the big W I'd love to chat with you Just as often as we have during the season so look for my phone call one more time a friend. You'll tigers you. GotTa that's right here during the rich Eisen show best. Doesn't particularly care if Alabama Lsu that he delivered news post game speech roll tide. What is one of a kind man? He's an amazing. I only bring it up here in Los Angeles Ella. USC could add him. These intimate see here. Yeah but he just. I mean when you think of Los Angeles when you think of USC in Los Angeles do you think somebody who looks and sounds like coach. Oh no right when you when you you think of a coach. Lsu does someone who looks and sounds like at Orange Iran. Sound right to you fact Bingo. He's in the right spot obviously he played for. LSU right he's the perfect place and his speech. If you will to his kids and the way he communicated it behind closed doors and the way that he said that we've been waiting eight years. I kind of liked that. He wasn't coming on a show. Like this and say you know what we're moving on Ole miss even though he did say that for Joe Brady his passing coordinator. WHO's by the way thirty? Three years old house at work in for him right now. He's thirty he spends two years. We make sure I get this right. He spent two years Joe Brady on the coaching staff of his Alma Mater William and Mary he coached linebackers. And then he was the Grad assistant at Penn state two years under James Franklin and then winds up on the radar screen. I'd love to know next time he comes on. We'll talk about it with them Sean. Payton's uh-huh radar screen. And he hires them to be an offensive assistant. And he's in the room with Sean Payton and boy did he just soak it all in and Lsu. You know what. I'm sick and tired of struggling on offense last time as we all know that was the game of the century between Lsu in Alabama Alabama points were at a premium. And he's like screw it. We're GONNA get this guy in here we're going to wing it all over the lot to the point where how many times the day snap the ball with six minutes to go five minutes ago. Four minutes to go with thirty seconds left on on the play clock. And I'm sitting there. I was with much. Like what is he doing. And I'm like they have zero chill. They have no Joe. Don't care they are aggressive. And at some point if borough is incomplete and they pulled like a three and out in the same way that Jimmy G. Data and overtime on Monday night to use a more recent example. Maybe bill here about it but right now they're not to be stopped and lookout Ole Miss. 'cause here comes Lsu and I just like it. Yeah Yeah. He's our Tom Brady. He's not worried about felon his head with anything. Because I guess he knows borough very well but he's all yeah yeah mic calls it rat. Ah Poison he calls it. Walk out the no lockout. The noise fun stuff right there. Eight four four two zero four rich number to dial When when we come back you know I do want to touch upon The Colin Kaepernick workout and also get to the Phone calls eight four four two zero four rich in and there is I believe chase young news out of Columbus Ohio.

What a moment for Walter regarding the credit goes to the purple aces executed perfectly? made the claims that were there to be made and pulled off a program program changing upset McCarty man. That's a name I haven't heard in a long time right and Evansville five and thirteen. In the Missouri Valley Ali Conference last year. preseason eighth in the conference preseason ranking in the conference last year entering the conference play and and there were eleven twenty one overall last year in the they knocked off Kentucky last night which is great for coach K.. I mean coach K. it's great for For the Kentucky Program Program and Calipari. Now I sit there and say okay. So what's you in Madison Square Garden and you can come home and you and you you you know what to the bed against against Evansville now he can use that to his advantage. EVANSVILLE can use this to their advantage. Exactly and then we'll see we'll see the RPI conversation see takes a hit. Maybe it could cost them a one seed doubt you know man. I love coach direct.

TV Four K.. Channel One. Oh five hundred if you don't have four K. go to at dot com slash Isan Four K.. I have no idea where this Colin Kaepernick workout came from none zero. I haven't heard anything at all that the League was going to do something like this. This or was planning on doing it. And the IT being a workout on Saturday for all thirty two teams and it was by all accounts sprung on cabinet. They basically said to Capri and his representation. We're going to have a workout for Unit Lanta show up and we'll give you a rolling list of all the teams teams that are going to show up and send people there. And and apparently capper Knicks people asked. How about next Tuesday because Saturday's kind of inconvenient for scouts and decision decision makers to make it their day before a game or it's a Saturday game where many general managers and scouts probably already had tickets and plane? Tickets the GO-TO various college campuses to see players. I mean this stuff is all planned. And now they're gonNA they're gonNA reconfigure everything and we learned about it 'cause Kapernick Brenick sent out a tweet saying can't wait to see the head coaches in GM's on Saturday. I don't think you're going to see any head coach is there. I think that's his point. is well like hey. I'm going to get a workout here I WANNA see. HCC's here right. I mean all the agencies are going to be getting ready for Game Day the next day even h sees for you think Tomlin might make it down there or or or Cleveland. They don't need a quarterback like Cabernet. So they're not gonNA sent Freddie. Kitchens isn't going to be doing Thursday night football and winging down to Atlanta when everybody's everybody's wondering what's going on with his quarterback situation the teams that are on a by packers titans giants and Seahawks. Now the seahawks the ones that had kapernick in right now for an official workout owes more of a visit. Now so I don't get it other than and that what can be beneficial for capper. Nick is to frontload for all the teams that are scared. There's no other way to put it scared to hire him because they're concerned that he will put social issues in front of football certainly when he's taking the microphone of the podiums or something like that to ask him. Where does that? Where does that come into play with your our ability to play football or your desire to play football or if you need to ask that question or what will happen when we put you as a face? Front person the franchise because we do find this to be important issues in the world but not more important than football and if that is a reason why a team isn't going to hire him and let's figure that out so I think it's it's not very useful at all to find a job in twenty twenty. Maybe twenty twenty one one and in terms of his viability to play quarterback. Can we get past the issue. He he wants to play by all accounts including Mike Silver. He wakes up everyday crack. Donna workout. He's ready to play if a team thinks that he can't play in the NFL in this day and age. And we're talking about how kyle gets a chance because of what may feel dead. who gets gets a chance because of what breeze and Russell Wilson of Don? Why aren't we sitting here in San? You know Russell got a chance because of what capper. Nick did Russell got drafted in the third round. Let's not forget in Twenty Twelve Okay and Colin Colin Kaepernick had just taken a team to the Super Bowl. Correct me if I'm wrong. Christopher double check that and the team that captured it could take in to the super bowl was coordinated by the offense coordinator. Greg Roman for Jim Harbaugh and look. WHO's the offensive coordinator right now? Now for John Harbaugh and Lamar Jackson. Same Guy Come on now. Lamar Jackson gets shot in the NFL because of an offensive coordinator Nater and or shot at being MVP and the NFL right now because of an offensive coordinator in Harbaugh. That did it for cabinet. Russell Wilson drafted two thousand twelve. Kapernick took the SIAKA nine or to the Super Bowl that year. That very well. I don't think it undercuts what I'm saying. All I'm saying is the following. Look at Lamar Jackson look at the way offenses fences are being run in the NFL. Look at the way things are going with. RPO's look at what Colin Kaepernick did. And I understand that he wasn't doing very well but neither was the entire forty thirty nine hours organization. All right chip. Kelly said in his last year there that whatever was going on with him and social. Moore's was not destroying the locker room. And if you sit here and thank you know what. My team hires cabinet all all. Holy Heck's going to break loose Nike stock went up when they made him the face front of a campaign. The pig socks is something he's got to make An accounting for. You're nodding your head. You're a former cop over there Mike. There's a ton of people out there that need to hear from him on on the pig socks front. Okay and at some point. This guy deserves to be quarterback back in the NFL. What are we doing? The world is big enough. And there's enough conversation that can be had to make sure that somebody can can have a livelihood and hopefully this does despite the odd construct of and timing of the workout hopefully can lead to this guy getting shot and maybe if there are people out out there that need to be prepared for it or owners out there or owners or general manager again. Always put it this way if Antonio Koneohe Brown after everything that we have learned over the last several months and witnessed over the last several months if there are general managers and owners out there saying you know what what he can still take the top off a defense. Let's see what he can do for us after all this after what we know after what we're learning after what he said on twitter the way he is handling himself and his business and this has nothing to do with the fact that he's now blocked me on social media. Nia it has to do with the way. He's handled his business and that there are still fans out there. Let's give him another shot. And you're fine and with that but you wouldn't be fine with listening to what's Colin Kaepernick delays and finding out what. That deal is an rooting for him. When he scores a touchdown after you might need a conversation to try and wreck in your reconcile your feelings and thoughts and there are some that need to be reconciled? I understand that but Antonio Brown's fine and this guy's not I have an I don't understand it.

Barstool Rundown - September 23, 2019

"Hi It's the rundown it is September twenty third brought to you by hooters who does provide the offense football view experience for serious fans so it's all the Games outpointed mother good have fun with the world famous girls stop by local hooters every Monday night tonight this football season. There's for some hooters Monday night. moneyball answer a a series of questions for your chance to hooters food swag cash prizes even trip to the big game in February. Get it on the action at hooters moneyball. Dot Com motion Brandon Walker. I've stream tonight from there. Yeah okay say why that should be on there. The one down the street address address anybody three three hundred. I address fucking idiot thirty four th street hooters so mushroom. Renoir Bush and Brand Walker heckled all right. NFL RECAP you want college you know I always do NFL 'cause. I'm glad we talk about college. Now Things Change I. I'm reading my print here. What does this say jets covered. Well just got one of the all time back cover Daniel Joe size. Do you want to apologize to him because you just said he was the worst pick of all time yeah. I mean I mean I never knew anything about college football from the jump so when that pick when they when they made that selection and everyone slammed landed like the worst ever. I was happy to giants fans. I think it's more that the giants fans need to apologize. Thomas said he was going to be done being fan. You cannot get offense. They could've taken them later problem that that that though people say that the risk is going to take him at like fifteen just don't know what he was gonNA. Take him unattainable all of a sudden he was selected and it was like no no no. We had to get a huge risk or you think there's somebody who knows what happened. This is the guy I will say giants. It's vans and Tommy as I said consider leaving the fan base. I I won't Galvin's Moron big as you know you. Did you get A in Georgia told you just didn't watch play like I watched them play lot. That's why I was open front. There's been like actually he's pretty never watched a single snap and it actually sounded like even gentleman and then had neither but he didn't get them as they drag him off like a senior. The only watch the I like it was a bad idea in the sense that they didn't trade back. I think think it's sounded like their management kind of made a pick on a whim and I think you can say that. The pick sounded terrible time and there's people who knows one game yeah yeah. I mean everyone's saying like don't overreact as well. Yeah don't fucking overreact. They had one game against the bucks which by the way if they make that kick the entire yes he had a good day still but the entire like coup-plot aw is not quite the same if you walk away with L. so I just think actually HOOPLA would have been the same still like think they have their guy but I did did everything I think even just like celebrating afterwards and align him like having I think a lot it's a lot bigger and better because of the wind I think the fact that he was like great with his legs is the main thing because that was like they talked about that. That's what I didn't have and then that all he's not he is. I mean not I mean Eli dip that anybody I remember saying that on the radio where someone's like well they've given up on the season so he might as well see what the kid to do. The exact opposite like the season only two games in giants fan and you should talk who play next week redskins. It'd be a win at home yeah. We'll definitely faces. Fade the giants next week off of that but we'll see what happens tonight so the browns Sunday night football. They're knocking plows. There is a fucking more. I love Freddie Kitchens but I mean but he's not see the draw like you well. You can't have an offense line guys. Goes people know that well the draw play. That was the first time that two thousand since two thousand seven when they started tracking that data it was the first time ever that a team ran a draw play on four nine or more. I mean it's a crazy call and I actually think but maybe maybe Freddie kitchen does work. It's brilliant but even even that like that was bad the the getting the first and go on the four yard line and having four timeouts and not even trying to run the ball and run a screen or do anything besides picker just running for his life in throwing the end zone. I don't like their uniforms. I I hate and it's they're. They're the browns don't trying to like flash up brown charge also Oh. I mean Odell Beckham Jr.. I just I hate him so much. I don't know why why do you know why the guys who don't win. Who Talk so much. Try not like his Monday night ever like on that. I like. You're nobody like you make that one qb catch hold the ball but your team's always lose on. I'm starting to think is related. I also so at another good point is GonNa make about this but I don't remember that package. They ran up like one handed catches on Obama was the first to do it and then people have been copying. Him was kind of weird yeah. We didn't invent can't all talk about coaches. I'm just before I forget coach. Do stupid things like I had Oklahoma state want to save money lining covered late but did you see when the fourth in like half a yard yes took they took a delay game and ran fake punt for nothing who through the Ohio. That was the stupid coaches. The seahawks had four th and one on their own twenty five and they threw the ball forty yards missed yeah. Oh I did see that was like saying what about areas taking taking the delay game. I'm pretty yeah into round so the Patriots cut yeah. I'm I'm I'm happy. It was the right move. or is our. Guy Shannon Sharpe Clint Contour Brown what clown well yeah. He went at Antonio Brown. I mean he went out strong sharp eighty. She still maintain eighteen. I choked me. Do I don't know we didn't. I didn't much eleven times times. No Dave actually actually when he went home at like ten o'clock was exhausted I wasn't gonNA say Antonio Brown Yeah I. I still think he probably is closer. My Gut instinct without knowing facts are what I'm gonNA say. He's innocent. He's just so stupid like the taxi sent. Yeah just shut shut up like that. Can't let it go. The story is not even your your the bad thing now. It's the text afterwards he just he just came in a text that tweet me and it won't be enrolled in Central Michigan. I didn't think the texts were even that bad. It's just the circumstance you're not thinking and I think I forget who said it. Maybe maybe rich Eisen tweeter somebody or it actually may have been rappaport whoever it was like the Patriots took him in and I'm sure that I keep your head down. Don't do anything goes and does this like all the tax like the way they were described as like threaten yeah they weren't. They weren't but that right right right. It's lower than it is now become now that goes reality threatens ex exactly exactly so The bell checks there. I think I'd be remiss if I didn't ask what was the final Straw with Antonio Brown folks on the jets today. Thank you coach in that. we know more that it which I love with the we put it on loop the Evil Empire Dana Jacobson so now first of all I kind of love Dan Jacobson and and it goes in circles because I love Sean Granny choose. He's engaged the celtics announcer a huge story so I got to Sean today. I'm like I'm still patiently waiting for like Dana Dana to apologize and he's done. He's tweeted very funny stuff he's like. I don't think there's GonNa be apology but that there will be the engagement. I'd be remiss not to include it also so like she's not saying like handle perfect. She's like I did my job he did he didn't treat me any different because woman everybody spellcheck yeah like you know that like. Nobel Jackson and do carry people freaking out. We're talking death stare you. She tried to sneak in question. She's got to he stares down. He's he's considered perfectly. Bella check does that to his Barbara. What we're trying to make small talk yeah right exactly. It's a no arm no father. I like the way she handled it and then I have something Oh this is just something throw out there the eagles they suck in cursive nichols well. It's not a lot but I post questions questions. I see eagles fans being like Oh. It's not Carson's fault well. There was all the rumors smitty that eagles fans hate eagles players hate Carson and what's so one hypotheses. He's either playing video. Games are his home so many one hypothesis is eagles players hate him and they're intentionally Ashley dropping ball or he throws a heavy ball like you know pitcher store heavy balls. It's a fact went. I mean foles feathery touch yeah. He has soft. I don't know the whole thing is philly. You know I'm wondering does now but it's not surprising that you stick on the heavy ball. Has it sounds crazy crazy but it's not oh no guys guys can throw catch bank. He's not the only player in the NFL. The throws the ball heart heart. There's other quarterbacks that throw the ball hard. Patrick mahomes throws all hard Jeff George historically through the ball and very good that can't be damning statistics cystic catch heart attacks foulland's balls. It is true suzy. Come in Greg Awesome looks like it's the eagles. They seem to catch nick foles balls all the time. It's the defense. I mean if you're two receivers are out then. You're you're the I mean we're going forward but you have to be able to pick up the rest of the team if the defense isn't there it's just not Carson. Wentz is what we call. Carson wentz apologised I. It's what would you rather have nick foles. He's fragile. Nick foles crumbles if you eat Alfie did in Jacksonville. That was just really. He's awesome born for each other. He's he's in. He's in his third road. I hope they work on. Nobody wants to eagles and one more than me so I hope that they think we appreciate the bank the guy the eagles have that later on the list babies now. I got the phillies all right yeah. We'll we'll skip to number four nothing hanging out the window you know screaming at his kids was in there and things like that so I ran to the back door was open and it was I ran upstairs. I was greeted with smoke ran back downstairs by at that time and ironically one of my co workers took the ladder off the off the truck raise it up and the the people down my managers about throwing babies out the window. We was catching unlike Aguilar so the guy there's a fire in Philly. They're throwing babies off the roof. The guys catching them. It's a serious injuries telling his hands. I caught him not like Aga- Laura. I think it was a look like even at the most trying time very filling. WII pissed off. You can't get mad. They went to that building to see the baby's with the antennae babies. Not Heavy ball the Jamie's those off all day basis because of Carson Wentz run that baby but it does he throws a heavy ball fan dole gambling second okay. We're into the fan. Sports is now live in Pennsylvania Jersey West Virginia. You sign up for with the Promo Code Stool. Get a five hundred dollar risk free Brett. I gave people this long game on Sunday. Yeah this long so hopefully he does the long game easy never doubt you're never never you can use that free bat to ride with parcel sports advisors like this long game this week of the morlocks parlay or fade them if you're an idiot and he was giving on that but not on the show you also would be an idiot where Red Hot young advisors is irs ice cold in college hot in the other so college football and here's where your IRA declared Michigan dead when we lost one hundred state so so you kill the dead person fine. I mean this has been zone. It's not go look at what I said. All right emergency halftime press conference. We got Miss Wisconsin. Johnson is twenty eight nothing Wisconsin. Here's the thing here's what I gotTa do right now. Which is unfortunate. I gotTa do this. I was a horrible guy said our boys his job for life. You can have Avak as long as you want Michigan job better. Guess what I want. Him fired right now at halftime. I don't mind losing like losers. One thing find is you can always loses. That's what they do but one guy I do. Not Think harbaugh should be fired after my love them. I love them because view but the programs programs get worse if becoming a joke there embarrassing people like myself and my Gerald Ford Tom Brady the notable alumni and it can't happen anymore. That was so emasculating masculine what Wisconsin did emission they. They ran the ball down. Your throat left right center all afternoon long. I mean you can't the Michigan. Men Myth is dead. Jim Harbaugh who I love. I go see. NFL because honestly. I don't even you think Jim Harbaugh pump. I think it's I think Michigan is such a failed program spends on. They can't support horrible. Listen having be successful. I I was so I I want him free. The only thing you Wisconsin is kill your friend because I was on the record as saying before the game. It was horrible job for as long as he wanted it because you know we're not going to ease embarrassing. Everybody went to that school the entire state. He's an embarrassing college football really because machines should be at least Ah Wisconsin Kills Michigan and what world know this world in the last twenty years well. I mean we're in the mantra so you're going to get what I I want to the last four you into into yes. That's that's so we're even. That's what I'm saying yes so but you think Michigan's above it was constantly. I'm saying well one by one hundred outlets ops and get rid of Arbor isn't embarrased embarrassed deport and has embarrassed you embarrassment Jim Harbaugh aw Yeah Michigan man gave they've given up an and I don't know who said someone else in like who like Michigan's not GonNa be well said set trussell. You want to expect it is state but here you haven't won anything ever reason. There's no national championship shareholders Nebraska. That would've kick the shit on on me. I can't do it. Was We better ninety seven. Yes no they weren't anyone who knows college football coach for Brandon who'd want to Brian or Michigan ninety-seven ninety-seven Brandon. I mean Michigan was low. I think Michigan would've won that game. It's GonNa Charles Woodson. They had a very good team here. Out of your mind signed like the best defense in the history called fucking lost touch tied. Missouri smoked I'll put them back on the field. If we can lower Louis you're talking about Yeah No. They're dead Michigan embarrassing. I don't know what you do. They're college kids but with Harbaugh like you get the bump but they're going down like nothing's going to reverse to go up so you've got to get rid of them. The rutgers punches funny celebrating like they punch their own guys now. Michigan's dead but but I'll take the minus whatever against rutgers because that's a horrible special. I don't know there's so bad. You don't think that they're just they're going to take out all. I don't know that they can't even do that anymore. Really Yeah Yeah that seems like just a listen a lot when you're nervous against determine retirement huge line but I just think Michigan this is the this is the classic like they're gonNA put up sixty on them and then it's been horrible every game for the Washington state game. I haven't even seen the highlights really that I don't understand. I am forty nine seventeen. Washington state's horrible. UCLA team and they lose that stopping sixty nine sixty seven saint. How was it talkies. No Mike Leach regulation. That's that's just I think Mike Leach I think they're up sixteen eighteen or something and he punted on fourth in like two on on Ucla's four Mike Leach. If he had just continually been might leash they would have won that game crazy crazy. That's everything for their PAC twelve just without fail every single year just can't can't have somebody who no matter what Oregon's the best team out Oregon's the best team put what will happen is white Washington. We'll be working and then nothing else will be wanting to have a PAC twelve championship whereas I'm in sold pulled out like what a way it'd be a Utah Persona State Assam how it'll end up at Stanford Stanford every year and then just punt in from the going in at the tent right Stanford will lose five conference game even somehow be in the PAC twelve conference bills mafia bills. Mafia fired up three now. I think I'M GONNA go three bills three patriots. I think I gotta go but this video video of the kid doing the firework. I told YOU ROCK IT blows up in his his face funny but what really took the next level it was sent to Barstool so we're like as a kid okay we don't have post it and the response where three and now he'll be fine. I mean you can't be more bills Mafia and they are. I mean somebody sent me the graphic it's it's Josh Allens face with the grim reaper knocking so he's knocked on the doors the bengals doors in the giants shy three teams and now there's knocking on the Patriots or they are fired up in if they win this game. I think it's the biggest one they've had twenty two years. It's the biggest game they've had in. The last biggest game was the one I was at because they were also undefeated was week two. Is this the biggest game in Buffalo history since ninety two probably actually it's the biggest game in fifteen years. It's the biggest game in probably twenty years. Let's be real listen. This is the tenth most it's important game for the Patriots in the last year. This is our Super Bowl this twenty years one of the biggest games ever in their life is a super bowl is the biggest game we've got and when and there's no way they beat the Patriots. Not I do love Buffalo People. I wrote a blog. I won't be if they just went in and it's like we like Buffalo. People salt of the Earth Simpleton give them a win is changing and now the bills win all he's. They're GonNa win the AFC. I was all you're not. GonNa Change a thing so would you just give it to give it to exchange your dog bone. Thank you and McLaughlin here. You Go. You have a win in September I would do that. I mean here. Maybe Tom Brady even thinking out lack of cover uh-huh unreal murder we already did the Philly guy the last one I got on here that we have to put I've watched it a lot. Our Guy Glenn e balls. I just getting tossed slowly mechanical bull. I've said it before but he's a manager entity like that. Cluny balls is it isn't a man graceful friendly. These these still elite is like is gentle big fat. I like whoa moving furniture. Never out to hurt. Anybody and Everybody Loves Osmond. Everybody has a little campaign to save and that's what there's not swimming. Three hundred pound butter means in the world parts of Gold Glenys. Eh You are humanity. Yes slowly WANNA buy right. He's always like Nice. Never not a mean bone. That's Oh I think you got like clothing that bolt. You think it's your on it. It's like that's like one trip around the earth and zero effort Nancy's don't go. I'm going straight glass. Let's sing for like three seconds. In the second time I was offered. I put all the way back onto but then very quickly at okay. I was maybe five seconds on the Salad George. It was pretty cool place. It's pretty wild. Athens is like eighty four bars and square mile so that was interesting. You See Willie just like poor beer man. Oh I aw college kid who did it. They were just pouring on everyone bike seller for the picture kept coming on my face and the worst part of Adams Adams B. had those shirts on the route to shirts which are great shirts. I love the Sucker for those shirts barlow free shirt design on the back at that. I thought my show is ruined. It was in the dais spoke the beer we just had that about all these girls and these girls tiny girls at a to accelerate like short backup for that but you know yeah like it sucks to accelerate back come on it was it was a hot day so quickly well. I talked to when he turn aroused. fucking willie like what are you gonNA. Do you know what am I gonNA do ask Willie's. I Apologize All right well then. I guess it's cool just policy. It's Okay Laura quicks. Real quick shot like large like no. Let's go over. We're good yeah those again. It was very nice. The likes to not disappoint and they did like a little blue balls thing too. They had the lights go regular at the third quarter because that was the big thing that they have read. Led Lights during the old stadium red and I nothing it was just regular. I guess what they do. They just do the phone lights and then two minutes later right before it started. Hopefully read it was it was something I will say. I met machines dead but it was almost more disheartening. Dec- Notre Dame fans once proud school trying to claim victory like I don't do that at Michigan we lose by one or one hundred the rules are out on social media like they want cookies like Oh. We play Georgia tough. That's not the Notre Dame I know. I'm not bragging. When we play teams off you win you play to win the game so and then like. Oh yes it matters like okay nordine be happy with your moral victories. I'm glad I'm not that anything else. It's Oh man. I forgot. You had a prime the time game I really my heart goes. Hey have you. It's not enough to win. The offense has to look awesome if they can't look buck doc and I've been saying if they win the bears win and it's a repeat of the Denver Game I'll come away from it feeling even worse on a two and one team Denver Occidental. It's so hard to do. The Denver did play Green Bay fairly tough you denver just another like done. Are you denver nervous. Would you be out if he has like A. I mean the problem is you can't right but I mean like in your heart. Would you be like our highway understand the guy I think I'm just convinced myself like next week but yeah this is a this is a very big game. Not only the bears are in that very weird spot where it's not only tonight but it's I think going forward because you when you push your chips in the middle. I have a weird hypothetical can't trade the draft. Pick right now tonight the draft you have number one pick. Would you take to for the bear right now. Yes yeah after uh-huh yeah yeah I mean there's probably a lot of teams out there though right probably half the teams the NFL to take to the giants would right now. No I don't know I don't three where the jets free. You have to pick in the draft. He has to keep Mitch. Whatever you want right so like if you will your salary in that matter. It's you have been pick next year. Whatever but you have to Judge Mitch. How if you sit Trevor Lawrence absolutely yes. I don't think I don't love too much. Everyone else loves to so but then of course like the rams one. If you look like we've looked and not I have some doubts being honest yeah. It's going to be very very important game which I in list punch. Yes yes jets. Were built probably wouldn't patriots would yeah. The bengals angles obviously do it. The steelers would brown's no knows no the AFC we south the Jaguars we do it. The colts would do it. The titans would do it. I don't know the colts will do it. I've been doing on defense. I think they like process. Obviously wouldn't I think there's a lot of people charges would probably do it. L. broncos would definitely do it. Definitely do it. Chiefs I mean most more actually just a handful of teams that say they have their quarterback. Raleigh might not because as of last year or even the beginning we have our owner and I don't even know the season hadn't started. They walls and honestly as bad as he's been. I really think those comments were reporter the edge if they didn't if he didn't have an opposing player come out and be like this guy can't play quarterback. I really when when what's his name Woodson and for the packers J J just like walking stake in your heart you have that you can't have the good luck. I like. I'm when you get your Nipples Lake Thursday Wednesday or Thursday because there's less stews STU might don't get get don't get don't get talking to Superwoman uh-huh yeah.

Analyst how you GonNa Handle this man I'm here to this movie ooh okay the most dangerous athlete and sports is I with nothing there's nothing to lose nothing anything to gain made a Yeoman's attempt at even put his glove I know he did connect with the ball with his glove but springer I will say this he's looking down the line he also sees his teammate standing on second base a why tagging tagging up being a great team even though there's no champion trophies in the case Sorta like Laker Fan I understand that so you understand where I'm coming from that I say this fully as you know I'm one of those if you will Chris Fools you referred to on your twitter account today of being those Yankee fans talking about radium and maybe that the Yankees are the nineties are like the two thousand nineteen astros where they can still win and obviously but the fourth youngest player to homer and a World Series Game Jones anyway I think it's nuts for anybody to look at George Springer and say you know what man I know you reached base four out of five that was weird plan so I will say this in the same way that we're also assuming that the pitch sequence to altuve would out of the batter's box he could have easily as he said after the game run by his own teammate or been caught up between first and second been on second and second would be the same I would say no but there's more pressure of him on third him on second he can also steal the sign I mean again there's a million different ways to go about this yeah do things which is by the way homer and a fifth consecutive world series game q almost had a second home run and again I will say this is taking a lot of Greens in the same with springer on third than him on second and I would prefer to say no or the pressure of him on third theives I know you've homered in five straight world series games I know you're like one of the greatest October players that we are seeing blossom and that how does that are that's our L. ABC I love childish Gambino second youngest player to homer in the world series debut Denver team people will think are in the top five right Utah and we raising their session and don't forget about us oh yeah you know we all forget amidst all of the I will put springer in that category already how do you not how do you not not by doing stuff like that well breath we're playing the result on man you're playing the result you're playing the result how can you sit here and criticize this kid I'm not what we we broke up the big three here Blake's Gandhi Andres Gone Chris Paul's gone beverly we'll make do with him with him I am I am sitting there applauding from a front row seat is Tony Bennett one said Oh and and I I am all and didn't we discuss it earlier this year that this decade has been the decade in which droughts and certainly teams that's feeling it they are sniffing it I am all in on this nats team and right from the beginning and springer run right from beginning and you don't know of Eaton's going to catch the ball and if he tore if he torres as US let's sure bought his teammates tagging up on second base and the only reason why we're assuming he could have been on third base is if his teammate had run the deep dive as we call it on NFL to grind on FX correspondence this week demarcus ware and Charles Woodson will both join US Charles is coming up next he was in Out Whatever Harold will be an hour number three Michael Celts will join us in the middle of this hour I have I have met a handful of die-hard exte- three percent of the time game one winners and the best seven postseason series going to win including twenty-five the last thirty one world series now here comes Strasbourg inver lander tonight I am all in so excited or it gave school stuff and the nats are one of those cub favourite you like that I don't know we'll ask our reynolds I dunno worked out Yankees Aaron Boone it right yeah for kind of Carlton Fisk his way out of the out of the batter's box halfway down the line halfway down the line holding his bat as Adam Eaton all that places biggest disparity in ten years go in since underdog Broccolis Red Sox thousand seven Raven fans he's one of them I can't wait to chat some Ravens football with him obviously he's got a lot going on in his life as well and then not one but two both we grew up loving Mr October that's who I fell in love with baseball with the original Mr October jeeter's one of the most amazing clutch players dating one of our buddy dame lillard Portland and Denver gazillion Portland Denver all teams like Remember I was really nervous about the kid from curious Andrew Jones Bob in Nineteen ninety-six that took too old lead on the Yanks in by the way there's in this area capitols fans no just throwing it out there just throwing it out there it's on the rich Eisen show again I'm thrilled to be here for you every day between twelve and three eastern every Wednesday nights starting this year I've been hosting a show on epix week he saw the chiefs last week demarcus ware did because he was doing the deep dive on chiefs and Broncos he was at that game where Mahomes was struggling to get off the field lots and get this limited time one hundred percent bonus offer to make some extra cash remember it's only game until you bet it at GSI welcome back to the IT's time we're not there yet but keep in mind I'll just throw it out here again what this this is the biggest from what I read about a town in Vegas got a to do list drop off the dry cleaning pick-up some milk here's an idea let's add save hundreds of dollars on car insurance to that list and the good thing is you don't have to drop reynolds our poll question coming up as well as your phone calls at eight four four two zero four rich that's how we're rolling here on this Wednesday edition of the rich Eisen show everybody called NFL the grind it is NFL films produced and it is a great show where twice a week base out correspondents to go hang with the team or teams the money to start winning today betty is is paying winners for twenty years and top rated on betting review sites that this is a very user friendly interface and mobile site simply play the outliers though 2017 Astros just keep it all in perspective how reynolds join us congratulations cubs fans you got David Ross back and you're dug out it's David Ross talk about with Doth Great Bronco Cowboy demarcus ware Raider and packer and of course Michigan Wolverine Charles Woodson Michael Phelps Harold that's using Promo Code R.

ESPN booth to the on my God hey that rule man I'm wondering what you all Tom Goat defender thinks that rule where the ball goes to the defense just because it gets fumbled into the end zone always laugh when people say oh one one play doesn't change the game well I don't believe that the momentum is the scary thing once it's should be a simple change doesn't get changed you know so you sit here you know after a big game like that in play like that changes the entire game meant that is potentially game changing placed into the hands of Aaron Rodgers who had predicted statistically the greatest game in the history of Green Bay Packer quarterback two thousand dollars for first place ten dollars you got to check this out today Yahoo daily fantasy has new content every week with guaranteed cash prizes even if you don't win the whole thing you can still walk away with a little the other side line and that was a fourteen you know potentially fourteen point swing where you know they're going into score Possibly a touchdown and all of a sudden king with a perfect passer rating I to ever do that in the history of that vaunted franchise you chatted with him as well in the week leading up same guy saint certainly was not in nineteen ninety eight was fourth overall pick and We gotta talk about that a little bit on the so too but yeah it was my first green bay gets the ball back and they go eighty yards for a touchdown so yeah not not not offended arrows certainly when you talk about how momentum can change a game and certainly when awesome here he is you know I came back to the rate of sports second time now he's back again for a second time so it's pretty cool to talk to him like that in that setting with with those people but I I mean I understand the on to say that he cost them the game where he could've they could've been that's insanity from the leadoff spot to what he's doing unlike a guy to use his one of his words relaxed he was very relaxed a going into the game and we just got a chance to talk and I talked to him a situation that you saw happier guy tell me how you found Aaron Rodgers when you connected with him Charles then man keeping the the ship is not afloat but I mean steaming towards the Super Bowl and you just saw the packers there at six in one you know what it looks like and feel like had deforest Buckner on yesterday's show niners are are six in Oh and the saints are six and one because they have teddy bridgewater to be around a packers team that's on its way to the Super Bowl and win it all do you think Green Bay has the ability to go into Miami and win at all this year Charles he he thought his best game was Dallas and even admitted this one was better than that and he damn Davante Adams for either of them so this is this is this is not even the ceiling right Charles would you would be I agree with that could you repeat that neither of those Games Dallas or the one that you just witnessed he devante Adams was playing in neither this point but he's feeling he's feeling dangerous right now and I think he's the worst quarterback in the League that you feel dangerous certainly when you say that so this is not even the ceiling would you agree with that for them absolutely not Would you would you do in a game like that when you have your top receiver in the offense with with Matt Leflore you know their their relationship is starting to jail and he's starting to understand the offense better each and every week and I think you kind of saw that yes and all those guys contributed and if you look at that game I mean all of those guys got catches and so you know like I say you start finding some gyms when cowboys game was his best game and so I asked him after the game and say hey man was was this your best game and you know he kind of gave it looked like I think without question I think with with the Green Bay packers having a defense right now playing the way it's playing Smith and and kind of taking over leadership role and he has brought a certain energy the team that they hadn't had there in a few years and you know he really kinda harped on that and he used to that's that's been a game changer for that team and I said he's much more comfortable The guy that had a a spectacular catch in the first quarter of the game where you find the ball at the end zone turn around one way and then had to turn the other way to catch the ball you're stepping into a much bigger role go out there and make the place when needed Devante we know he's the number one wide receiver but when he's not there what do you do you know you spread roster that you didn't know didn't necessarily know were there and they step the big full well they know now we're also looking around Charles Charles Woodson year on the rich Eisen show route you know you begin to find players on your squad that you didn't know I could go out and make plays for you or guy that had a limited road on on on Sunday and you know after the game I asked my obvious question because last the last time I think it was the cowboys week he said Ronda you look for other guys we also talked about the importance of Aaron Jones and him being a big key for that offense get things going and taking the names right now can't licking coomer Oh and allison and lazard I mean it sounds like a law firm man it's it's it's totally crazy oh so he's an important part of that that opens but yes those young receivers stepped up scandal even know their names are so crazy having guys up front that compressor to quarterback and you know be able to get to him in in throw offenses off in that way have secondary i Alexander who also got to talk to a young guy had it just brings a tremendous amount of energy to the game they they have the attitude yeah this is my best game so so yeah he he's feeling good especially with the defense carried a team you know so to speak to you food have speed on defense to go out there and you know helped helped the team overall but like I said with Aaron Rodgers if he's becoming more and more comfortable Charles Woodson joining me here on the rich Eisen show and you also spoke Derek cars folks are going to see on NFL grind tonight Derek told you that I have young players like Kevin King who's come up with another fourth quarter interception stopped stopped the drive or be played of course in the game having a young guy like that eighty mean by all of that Charles I think you know when you when you go into you know any season you know there's always new players with this offense and they continued to jail the way that they are and like you just brought up without Dan Davante Adams and then you get him back and you know he's the guy that you I know players that come from different organizations and you know maybe they don't have the same beliefs in the team same belief in this game same belief in you he likes the players that he's playing with the likes his teammates and even said to you that sometimes it's not always the case and saying that you would know that as well I mean what and get the ball to Devante I mean you you gotta you gotTa tough out with the Green Bay packers I if they get into the playoffs and I don't think there's a question they will get in you have to participate potentially double you know out there in the field and so you have to Dole him you got young players on the other side can go out there and carry the load if they can they went through all of that together and I think you know they're got a chance to you know Kinda see these guys young players you know come in and not worry you know that you had somebody else that was there so you may not have you know great relationships with those guys and and when you go out there on Sunday you know you may not be on our fellow Michigan Man Adam schefter saying hey take a look at his real estate D- situation solemness houses trainer sold the house to that you know talking to him and Jaya exander Alexander on the other side man rich you can tell that these guys here are the same page I think with their I think with what he was talking about is these young guys were all there in the off season and they did have you know when you're on the rich Eisen show in a couple minutes with you left I wanna hit you in a two two items one of which is the quarterback that you I interviewed for the grind back in week to Tom Brady and so I think these guys they they jail together as a young team and they're young players got got guessing experience in the game together he had touchdowns called back I mean this this kid could have had a monumental day but but if it weren't for penalties and that sort of thing so they're competent want to leave their mark and I think that's what their car was getting that when saying that he loves this group of young guys watch that game offensively they look good the truly love football and I got that from for dirt and then also I mean I talked to so many guys talked to judge Jacobson Stroz knowing Tom as well as you do well I think it's in the House and trainers seven house I think what he's probably going to do next they're happy to be in the League but not just happy to be in the league and what I mean by that is they're not happy saying hey yeah I'm in the NFL these guys here's just you know they'll probably move family down to Brazil and they'll just commute back and forth so I'm not I'm not gonNA put a whole lot into it right now that I didn't stay rich man for the last I think for the last five Oh so six years man we've been all speculating on what time is going to do about any of that you know they came out there to work each and every day Gruden said the same thing I talked to Mike May I before the cabin he said the same thing that he's got guys yeah not right now right now man you know a accountable news gotta be on the team and let us all down so no I'm not gonNA say his name right now in about an hour before you you call in here everything's popping up about our our coach Jim Harbaugh who you saw a couple of weeks ago getting into the Michigan is that there's a little bit of smoke here that he might be preparing to leave New England or exact whatever leverage has in that direction do you think that's the case Tom Brady's retire and all of that Or leading or or preparing to leave maybe New England and play for another team do you think that would be possible this would finally may be spin in a direction with harbaugh leaving with our with US needing a new coach Charles do you sense that at all inside to foresee what he's doing I feel like Brady is a guy that always has a plan and he always keeps people guessing and I think the only some controversy this off season with you know a big name player that was supposed to be there just kind of took them you won't even say his name Charles you won't even say his name anymore saying that all rumors of him trying to get pursuant exit strategy out of Michigan Quote Unquote total crap Did you get any sense being an Ann Arbor that this aw hall of fame by the way congratulations on that Charles you most welcome in a hobbyist deserving of it that he had to send a letter to recruits doc right that kid waller's no joke that tight end is all my God you he's a problem he's he's a guy I watched wait for that first half I mean like I said they're about to go possibly seventeen fourteen I think that point went back in there hey man Karuma of him leaving I immediately believe it so I mean I don't have any inside knowledge of what's going on but if he's got a piece I didn't sense that but for me anytime and this just isn't about coach harbaugh situation but anytime I ever hear coach after deny that there's they have on this team and I know they're young but they're but they're they're they're guys they'd come in and play with a level of maturity and they're happy with where they are right now no I'm saying yeah there's probably some there what do you think ails the program to the point where I shouldn't say this because going on with with the Michigan Program Charles Man you know it's to me I mean it's it's Kinda hard 'cause we could we you know I'm not sure where that derived from you know of course because I'm not in the locker room in in that sort of thing so I don't know what the players go through on a day to day and all soon dot letters and no declared that that he's not going anywhere and the whole nine man I you know I don't put a whole lot into that so him and building getting along we got all these speculations and all these done go out there and win more super bowls so I'm not GonNa sit on here you know during that game early in the game I watched you know Oakland goal in a four by one six and they got waller out by itself so they expect this guy to be a Metropol- we've all been speculating on how he looks at some point during the season that he's he's dropped off ball speculated and it's a strange thing there we speculated that all man he does always the truth to that so when you say okay you believe the fact that there is something going on not believe the denial is what you're saying you got what he's GonNa do he probably has the underground layer somewhere somewhere there in Boston that nobody knows about living underground and that's where he's GonNa be for the foreseeable future so I don't I don't even I don't even worry about timing he he'll be alright we expect to play till forty five like you said Okay Michigan mets missing you know I I don't I don't feel I don't feel the top of energy from the Games when I watched the games that I need to feel so I'm not the Dan man they they almost had it and that Kid Ronnie Bell needs to keep his chin up because Michigan's GonNa need him and he's really talented so all that said what do you think is is people that know what he's GonNa do is himself probably his wife and his trainer and that's probably it and then all of us are sitting around here me talking he always thinks that there is smoke and fire when that sort of stuff happened interesting and Brady

The Business Behind the 2020 Season, Faking Fans, and Virtual Training Camp | The Ringer NFL Show

"Hello and welcome to the ringer podcast network this week. The ringer is launching a new podcast. Feed called boom bust new hub for narrative. Podcasts documenting the rise and fall of companies celebrities and trends season one hosted by our own. Elizabeth says neck takes you through the spectacular journey of HQ Trivia. The one hundred million dollar industry altering company turned disaster elicit interviewed dozens of former employees investors journalists and fans bringing you the behind the scenes story of how HQ crumbled from within subscribed boom bust HQ trivia and checkup first two episodes out now on spotify. Or wherever? You get your podcasts NFL. Show podcast network. I am Kevin Clark joined today by Bryan Curtis will blackmon talked to very good thing for some very interesting blind about what happens if there's a season without fans and what that looks like on TV whatever Sigma Broadcast Point and placement. What you're going to see on their television this fall. He has a ton of really good info and then we talked to former. Nfl Defensive Back. We'll black men about Mike McCarthy. We played under Aaron Rodgers. We played with US Charles Woodson stories. And what I wanted to talk about is just what this season will look like with. No offseason out teams will be built how who will benefit who will not benefit and he has a lot of good insight on that. So what start with Bryan Bryan Curtis Ringer Media Legend? Well official title We have a got the new spotify business cards yet. A work on it all right. We want to talk about what the season's going to look like because it's going to be weird. We have a couple of test. Cases WITH EMPTY. Stadiums team was fined for using sex dolls. Day as crowds feel like. That's probably not going to make its way to America as a trend. Ufc had a empty arena of is at three empty arena. Events have been okay. Nascar had an empty re-embrace last week. Empty Stadium Race and we've seen the Korean baseball scene German soccer. And we've seen sort of watered down four person golf Brian we think about this fall. What do you think is the biggest difference in just the production that we're going to see from week to week basis when there's probably know fans in stance it's a little bit like the advantage the NFL has had during this whole thing? Which is they don't have to do anything for the next few months. And so all the NFL producers at the networks. You know what they were watching this weekend. Nascar and the skins game and Bundesliga. Because they're watching all these things they're like this love this love the idea of Roger Goodell watching versus Beyer Leverkusen. I DID SAY TV producers. I cannot speak for the NFL. Front office just sorry network producers. But they're all that stuff and they're going will. That was cool. Let's try that or let's steal that idea and refine it a little bit that sucked. Let's never do that. So they get like three months to basically watch what everybody else does refine it and then have something that looks allegedly pretty cool for September a couple of years ago. I was doing a story about softening ticket demand or on the NFL because essentially the problem has become it is much more convenient and fun and certainly cheaper to watching her living room with an HDTV than it is to get season tickets and spend twenty thousand dollars on the line. Or whatever I season I get. Psl's which is you know multiplied out by a couple and I remember NFL executive saying something to me that thought about constantly since. Then which is that. I asked them. I said you make so much money from TV. Do you even care that much about tickets? And they said yes first of all. It's a bigger chunk revenue than you would think even though they make obviously billions of dollars in TV but the other thing is is the NFL stadiums. Executive told me are the most valuable TV studios in the world. It is it is atmosphere. It is just beautiful. Settings People Watch the game because they want to see the crowd at Lambeau I don't that's ninety percent of the crowd but I think that you know. I think that the television viewing experiences enhanced by a game at Lambeau or soldier field or or Foxborough you know people like seeing those are conic venues filled and it helps and it is the most valuable TV studio in the world I think that it's going to be a very strange thing but I think that the NFL has to find a way. And I don't know if anyone's hit yet to have the actual atmosphere be replicated when the fans aren't there I think they have to find a way. Do you think at CGI FANS? Do you think that's hyphen crowd? Noise so I totally agree with the big idea. And I think a lot of it's Kinda subtle writing subliminal it beyond this the actual things we see in the television picture. It's the quality of light. You know at Lambeau field. If you have like a four o'clock start late in the fall or in Pittsburgh right those games just did Jerry World. The Sun coming in through the windows. Yeah yeah that's that's on the other that's like looking right into the sun but yes that's exactly their little things like that that we're just queued to be like. This is really cool and we may not even be able to articulate. It's like if you just walk in watch a movie and you don't know how the movie was. Maybe like really cool. I think there's a lot of that. Cgi fans. I don't understand. I do not understand why I am going to watch a game and subliminally or consciously go. Oh that's really cool. They're fake people in the stands that particular innovation. It's not off the table. The crowd noise one more interesting to me because there's a couple of levels here. It sounds kind of ridiculous like the laugh track on the Sitcom in know. Two Thousand Twenty where you're like. No no no but there is that sort of ambient murmur that when you flip on a baseball game or even a football game between players. You just hear if you don't hear it it may sound like you're playing football game in a submarine so I think the guys. I've talked to last couple of weeks. That's one of the big things is just not making it. Sound Weird to human ears to have total silence which I think some of the soccer games did sound weird. Yes here Then then you get into the advanced audio thing right okay. The balls at the five yard line is there somebody in the truck with a switch going art. We'RE GONNA turn this up and have the crowd cheering or booing or whatever. And that gets you into a whole weird kind of place of invention that. I'm not sure anybody's ready to go. Yeah I do think it'd be very funny. If there were certain teams have a laugh track ready for name any of those teams but we but they know who they are someone in our soccer slack the other day when we were watching the Bundesliga said that it feels like under twenty one game or like a youth game. That's played in a park somewhere because there was just nothing there and I think that you have a good example is there's always sort of urban legends and maybe they're confirmed that on some some of the golf tournaments that there are an ambient noise piped in And maybe that's birds chirping or whatever and I think they need to figure out how that sounds With the on again they have months to do it. Figure it out you'll have some preseason games attest style I understand that Also where this where the Games will be played. Well these Games he played jerry world and and Foxborough and Lambofield or will they be played at the world of Sports in Orlando? Maybe there's just so many unknowns right now that that's interesting I WanNa ask you because when we were talking about the Bundesliga as a staff a couple of days ago. I was actually disappointed with the broadcast and I think that the broadcast is going to have to carry a lot of this and have to fill in for the passionate isn't going to be there because I think with UFC. I think that Jon Anik and Dana Cormier and and our our spotify colleague Joe Rogan. I think that they they were so passionate and were yelling and hollering and yelling doing things they normally do. But because they were exuding passion. It didn't seem like we're missing a lot whereas with the Bundesliga doing normal kind of You know softspoken soccer commentary. That wasn't hollering and I felt like there was. There was something missing there and I also think that for for I think the golf was may be a medium and I think they'll probably figure that out But what is the role now of broadcasts with play by play guys with studios to sort of replicate passionate morning won't be all that authentic. Yeah it's a great question because those guys are so used to having in their ears the sound of the crowd rights even if they can't physically here in the press box somebody like Joe Buck. He's talking about this. The other day has the noise turned way up. Called effects turned way up his ears right. So what did that is is a cue for his voice that when the sound gets to a certain level he is going way up here to get ahead of that sound right so now. There's a thing of Joe Buck and Troy Aikman sitting in an empty stadium. Perhaps though this is less likely in a TV studio somewhere distant from the stadium and going. How excited are we supposed to get here? I guess I I think the template is almost like everything that will happen in a game win. The visiting team scores a touchdown right. Because you're kind going against crowd there anyway right but you have to be excited. You know you're doing a game in Minnesota and the packers score. You still have to be excited as an announcing. Oh well that sucked kirk cousins. Great you have to go way back up here for Kirk cousins. So I think that's just I think it's almost a mental thing as much as anything and maybe as you say because you're not surfing off the crowd you just have to turn your whole performance up like ten or fifteen percent distort. I agree with that and I think that that's going to be finding that balance to I mean you also in a strange way you also be hooting and hollering and everything else. We totally silent. And now you sound too eager like now because there's no background noise now. It's just like you to sound like a maniac so I think finding that balance. I think strangely that every NFL broadcaster main broadcasters probably pretty well equipped for that like I think Al Michaels is GonNa find that really quickly having Jim Nansen Job Bacher GonNa find that really quickly Again other sports Where that doesn't necessarily translate Do you think that the the networks are going to have to do go ahead? Well I was just going to add one more point to is. How much does the NFL let the players do this for them? Right right now. That was that was. Give me my next question is there is another level of of miked up kind of thing or or how do they how do? I think the Ju- Germany. You could hear the the yelling on the German Soccer field over the weekend. The problem was I don't speak German so I can't really. I can't really comment on like that. Brought me inside the game because it might have been the equivalent of what we hear with like the NBA Huddles were. It's just Steve Clifford yelling energy or it might have been on every NFL films. Thank God man. Let's go. Let's go so I think there'll be a lot of that because we we know the. Nfl is not going to allow that amazing. And I I thought this is one of the most amazing things about the. Xfl was hearing the coach. Call the play into the quarterback. That was awesome. That will never work in the in the NFL. Then you've got the problem like bad words right. See to put on a delay. You have seventy six near being like great dump out all the time if you're miked it up but there's gotta be something other than the announces you're bringing in. I do not endorse the Jerry. Lewis telethon approach to the skins game hat. Let's get here's President. Trump. Bill Murray Bill. Murray calling in. But YOU'RE GONNA have to get sound somehow. Now maybe you also just Mike everything up on the field a lot. More see. Just hear a lot more tackling right. Those are sounds that are in. Nfl broadcast already. They're pretty low. But maybe you can jack those up so it just feels like you're standing on the sideline and hit a hearing that pat hit like that a little bit more and maybe that'll help too. That's my thought. So there's a couple of things I want from new see number one was the UFC going. And I one of our colleagues said this and I can't keep laughing about it. The the cornermen went full quote gorilla monsoon on on the judges because every time there was a punch thrown it was because they wanted to sway the judges because there is no crowd to react for them. I would say the same thing is going to happen with with referees. Where there's going to be allowed more if you thought the calling for for fouls was bad before it's going to be even worse. When there was no crowd to react the benches will probably be more emotive I think that there's probably going to be just a change in behavior when there's no when there's no crowd and I feel like they have to take the. Nfl has take advantage. And Getting Mike's as close as possible. I think is probably did delay Talking to someone on the NFL films side the NFL production side on their phones but the NFL kind of media side and they said they essentially so NFL teams have have a say over what comes out on. Sort of the the mic`ed up segments after the game. I don't actually know that when the Sam darnold seeing ghosts thank came out. A lot of a lot of the in game stuff was talked about but as far as to. Nfl films three weeks later. Best of Steve. Young miked upper. Whatever right Those things are go through a number of layers and I was told one time that essentially if the unedited stuff got out for really any game. It'd be really bad. Evie real real real bad let these guys are not gentle with each other and so there will have to be some accounting for that totally and I think from what I've heard from the NFL's perspective is it's both stuff like we just can't let anybody ever hear that that would be able to the seeing ghosts whereas like this is going to be nineteen news stories this week that this player just doesn't need a want and then. I think the third is kind of Impe a ratings board thing where you don't mind a couple cuss words but like five hundred cuss words. I think he's a cut off or your way okay. We've had two hundred and fifty F. bombs now. We gotTA chop this year. And that's kind of the decision. Everybody's making an extremely personal stuff. Not There's a lot of working blue. I'll say that there's a lot of working blue on Annabel sealed. It and I think that that will come out when when this happens and I think it'll be. It'll be really interesting Brian. Anything else that. We're not talking enough about with this with this stuff. I think no because I think at this point. Everybody's just making it up. You know as everybody. I talked to this weekend. We had that kind of weird news cycle. Where Joe Book? Put the ideas of the crowd noise and the fans in the stands and some people took that and thought decisions have been made and one thing I just from talking to people this week. No decisions have been made about anything. We know nobody's ever done this before. So I think the other thing. That's interesting in this producers are basically like NFL coaches. There are a number of Ron Rivera. Types in the truck. Were like Whoa. Whoa WHOA innovation. Whoa let's let's easy kids. And then there are some that are in the more the CAL Shanahan Moses like. This is the challenge great. Let's let's do one hundred store one hundred things at the wall and try to figure this out and be a completely different game than we were and twenty nineteen and so that's going to be made again. Maybe just people like me but that's fascinating to those kind of different approaches. Where you're like. How much do we need to change and NFL game or is just the fact that we have NFL Games? In September. Going to be so exciting and again knock on wood for the American public that we just to put it on TV. And that'll be the biggest thing I think that is exactly right. We don't know anything and that's part of the problem. We don't know again where the Games will be held. Don't know I mean what the schedule look like. Will there be preseason games where they can work out the mechanics of it all our whether or not be Will they all in one where they all all of these Games you play down? Unlv's campus or there'd be played the home stadiums. I mean it's just it is such an unknown that it's almost impossible to plan right now. I know from my perspective. The only thing I'm planning for is just not being able to go to facilities in talking to players everything else. I'm just leaving open and we'll see July because I I would be shocked if things pick up so quickly that I can sit five feet from Dak Prescott and August fifteenth and ask about his contract. Oh totally Fox Executive. Tell me the other day said the thing about sports television and we can say about sports generally is it never stops even when the super bowl is over. There's just NASCAR. Something is starting and everybody turns to the right and then does that and this is one of the only times that TV industry as a whole has had time to just like take his giant breath and be like. Now what do we do? What should all this stuff look like? Do we send the announcers or do we not send the announcers do we. How do we make the players like we're talking about and it could be this kind of amazing moment of innovation in a part of the world you know doesn't always innovate? Maybe as fast as a needs to know I totally agree. It'll be fascinating to watch my dad over the course of this conversation. My Dad is email but NASCAR. I have no idea why my dad has not email me about nascar ever in his life. I don't think he's watched a race in twenty five years and somehow NASCAR is cut through to the point that I have in my inbox. Nascar email to see that stat forty was at forty percent of the People Watch. The race had not watched a NASCAR race in forever. So I I bet on the NASCAR. Yes the you win I. I won six bucks at one point I was I. I took a screen grab. I took a screen. I was number one in daily fantasy pool while like one hundred laps in took a screen. Grab and then. I ended up winning six dollars which is not first-place NASCAR is back. Nascar is back and I I was anybody. The thing is is that I a whatever is a competition right now. That is on Sunday afternoon. I Love Golf and I would have watched that. Seminal thing no matter what and I would have watched it. Even one hundred sports were going on anything. Nascar is fill the void. I mean even have got seven hundred thousand buys for their their first pay per view back and that was not searching a leak Carter they would normally get seven hundred thousand buys on. Espn plus platform. People Are Really I. Think that the Bundesliga in America might be a bridge too far as far as just everyone you know tuning in to see to see Wolfsburg but I feel like any sport that is on on a network right now on Sunday afternoon. We'll be consumed I just got a press release. That bowling is coming back. June six so we may be testing that Testing Jerry depends what they're up against back NASCAR. Which is now America's America's pastime. Why Not Kyle Troupe? So you did it. You did a story on On the NASCAR broadcast and and my joy and all that stuff. What were the things that stood out to you as far as What those guys have to do to do remote broadcasting and and how is that going to play out of next couple of months when it probably starts happening in multiple sports on one hand? It's incredibly hard because you have to watch forty cars which might joy told me was like watching forty balls in play in another sport as opposed to a football announcer. If he's watching a game remotely right. He can kind of follow the ball. It's a little bit harder on long passes but you can. Kinda just follow the ball. That's number one but number two is what we're talking about. Second Nascar really doesn't have a crowd at least as like an active participant in the race in the same way that a football game does so. It's not like you're waiting for the crowd to go crazy at certain points in the race and to become a big part of the telecast is kind of this roar the whole way so in a way. I think it was harder in a way was easier for them to do that. And you saw those little bit of drone action right during that dead during that race stuff like another one on this afternoon by the way. There's there's a lot of nascar racing on so I think they're probably the laboratory right now to going. How do we do this? There is a NASCAR race on right now. Pretty sure right. Three o'clock Pacific Yeah. This is amazing. We're doing NASCAR around the clock. Forgive me a fitness. Read the Schedule Shield. Did they. Steal Dana White's fight island plan? They just they're just cranking out raises. I did notice. Bowling is in Florida. But I will say I will say that. Given the fact that it's cars I- NASCAR is all day this race every day. Sure just refill tank. Get going you know I mean I do. There is obviously drivers are exhausted and all that stuff after the race and I'm not I'm not taking a shot at anybody who is a NASCAR driver but I'm just saying you can do that more than you can play football over fighting a UFC. Let's just say that. Yeah absolutely absolutely had some crazy number races that those Fox guys are calling within like a couple weeks. They knew and ask racing your life no India but not NAS car now. I kind of want to go now that I bet on one and now that I can't you've never been to one and two years. No we don't understand these. I've watched a lot of NASCAR. My brother was a huge NASCAR fan. But I've never been to a race as a Youtube I've driven I've driven on the track at Daytona. Just is like a a as a bit and then I'll I've also driven strangely on the Darlington track as well just it like in a regular car. Incredible time in American life where people say if you want to understand America Real America you need to go to a NASCAR race at two which I and I assume you said no no. I went to a college football school. So I got I got it or just live in Orlando Florida and you understand America really. I'm all good. Yeah Bryan Curtis Dak Prescott over under forty million dollars would it? What was the thing? Forty-five he's asking for forty five was that that was the fake last year of his contract. Was that what it was? I don't understand Dak Prescott negotiations of entered our our boss. Bill Simmons Tyson Zone. Where I'm just ready to believe anything like every thing that happens with type Prescott contract and he's been happening for a year and it's going to keep happening because he's he's a really good quarterback for the most important team in American sports but every time most popular American sports every time there's a rumor about his salary demands through nine other reports on the completely different and I just don't I it's kind of. It's even though it's a hugely important story. It's edging towards wake me up when it's over territory. Yes yes I'm a cowboys fan and I have been completely unable to follow the plot of what other than the very simple plot of Dak Prescott bet on himself to use a nice sport steak and he won right. He had a great season and now he should get more money than if he had signed last year. Right I can put himself in another pay. Thiru quarterbacks thinks that fair to say and here we are hey pay them in yet and he might be going kirk cousins route and just trying to play out the tag and reach true free agency in which case he would make unprecedent amounts of money. But I think it's one more fascinating things to watch if he does that. If he's just GONNA resign and we're just going to go through this song and dance than just somebody. Just get this done. I'm over it and he had a party the other day remember that he had already. That was another story where the initial report comes out and then there was eleven reports afterwards just completely different things and I was just like I. Don't I know I'm lost interest in this story by Bryan Curtis? What a great way to end. I've lost interest in this story. It's a good time to kill the segment right there. Thanks for having me Kevin. Thanks so much okay. Joined by will BLACKMON TEN-YEAR NFL defensive. Back and I fell analyst Wine Connoisseur at this point I would beyond connoisseur. What is beyond Connoisseur? I would say Bali now. Okay and the reason is connoisseur. Smile opinion that it's someone who has a really huge interest in wine. Okay when you get to the Somali your now an educator of wine you serve your right. Uk All right. Well we're going to teach about football here. Maybe we'll get to the wine a little bit later. But I wanNA talk to you because you came into the League under Mike McCarthy in two thousand six and you play for the packers team and I become obsessed with what this season's GonNa look like because there's not going to be an off season and there may not be a regular training camp and the things that we all have agreed upon to help football team build. Those things are not going to exist this year. Right Mike McCarthy and the cowboys are getting a lot of hype right now A couple people. I've seen couples smart him to win the Super Bowl or get close to it. And I think there's a lot of people football who think that any coach wasn't Jason Gear would have been a lot better with that roster last year. And that's why there is a McCarthy bump this year knowing what you know about Mike McCarthy knowing what you know about this offseason having gone through all this before you were in the League until eleven. Even though you were hurt that season. We'll get to that in a second. Do you think Mike McCarthy can build his culture or team or whatever you WANNA call it in this kind of fake offseason enough to get rolling in September. And how the cowboys be a gentleman contender. I feel like I believe he could for the simple fact that now these players are children anymore you know they have dealt with some adversity. They've been playing together for a little bit in terms of the grand scheme of things of teaching guys how to win Games. Hejin guys out a practice teaching guys hot up prepare. Nah I think he'll be just fine. Just just this back to that because my comparison yes it would be his first year as a head. Coach in Green Bay of the same goal was drafted two thousand six that he inherited a team. That was mature. We way more mature. I had a thirty five year old Brett Farve at the time among other guys but it was a team that had some maturity and I like this team is this should be the year where they hit their maturation. When if you will where would you rank them among the contenders right now to cowboys right now? I can see them simply. I see them as the favorites. Just because Mu Washington is unknown. Right especially offensively right just that you just don't know and I mean they have and they also by the way have a same issue which is run veras trying to quote unquote build a culture. And he's GonNa be able to see his guys talk well. They did a complete organization overhaul which bigger with that looks like you know. The potential looks great especially defensively and in New York once again unknown. You don't know especially with the help of saquon. What's you know? Was the defense going to look like in the secondary. We don't know about that. And I like Philadelphia is another unknown We know what they capable of even dealing with all kinds of adversity but is there. Is everyone going to be healthy? I feel like if every team is at full strength. I think I like Philly. But what's going to hurt them too? Is the loss of Malcolm Jenkins leaving? That's really gonNA put a huge hole in that team. I agree with that. And I think that there's who wanted questions about about my Jenkins in his departure and and what that means and I think that in the secondary obviously very different things different position but I think Darius slay being added even though it was pricey. I think that helps. I think that the eagles are a little stronger on paper than than they've been given credit for I think. The Howard Rosen. Did is a better job than maybe the fan base thinks in Philadelphia right but why but why did you add a dairy Asli? Because you need. You need defensive backs you need a division specifically right right right. Amari you know And then you go Washington Tehreek. Yeah and then New York you know Shepherd Golden Tate. Whatever the to you. I don't I don't think you added for for Golden Tater Shepherd but yes no I get your point especially when he night with but I I get your point. I like him as a person like him as a person. I just don't think I think when your I think your point is correct about sleigh. When you add sleigh it's to stop Dallas may be some Washington. What is this reply? Because Malcolm was he could lineup everywhere. Darius Rayong you gotta get a lockdown corner on the team so Okay so I WANNA TALK. Broadly about what what this off season looks like. You're a veteran. You went through. Two thousand eleven. You were injured at that point but then he ended up on the team November. That won the Super Bowl that year. When you don't have an offseason. What are the things that happen to League? What happens to players weapons two teams? That were not thinking enough about while you. You're GONNA see I think we reverse in terms of when you have a full offseason. It is your chance to get all the young guys prepared up to speed and read it. Applying twenty twenty is going to be the year of the white walkers. Okay okay all. Jeez all old school quarterbacks all the players that are eight years Omar although best admendments. This is GonNa be the year for them. They're going to have a full offseason of recovery. I remember even Planning Planning Bay like the guys like Charles. Woodson didn't come to off. Banning like veterans didn't come to training mandatory minicamp because mandatory. Obviously but I can see right now. You Know Big Ben is healthy. You Know Air August for a good reason. But he's on a private jet travel train. You know Brady's already getting back to work. Philip rivers has a fall season arresting Mina rate in Indianapolis. I think is going to be a year for both eyes were open. That's going to succeed. Because those guys will love. They've been placed along. They would love to not vote. Training when hand held out in two thousand seven and skip training got find over two hundred brand and he was like man. Had I known that was the going rate I paid a hundred grand skipped training camp so I think I know being funny right now but in all seriousness. I feel like this is going to be the year veterans. Come back to life. Yeah no I am in agreement with that. I think the continuity is going to be so important. Something I've set a bunch of this podcast as far as Kansas City. Like it's going to be really hard if you're AFC west team to get as good as Kansas City. This off season eight is hard to grow in leaps and bounds. I think that's exactly and nothing and Baltimore only got better. You add class Campbell and a couple other of a couple other options especially to the draft. And you're right. They run a bit. Yeah exactly and and I think that there will be. I think there will be some rookies. Who are able to make the jump and have an impact you know. I think in two thousand eleven people like Cam. Newton People J. Watt. They came in and had instant impact because they were talented. But as you said the giants won the Super Bowl what they fairly veteran squad New England patriots. Were really good with a veteran squad. The New Orleans Saints Teams like that that had done it before who need a training camp. We beat the niners. Yeah a favorite that year right right exactly exactly and it's funny because the NFL Dot Com did story today about how Jim Harbaugh was able to overcome the odds and was the rare coach in two thousand eleven to be a rookie head coach. Come and build a culture dwelled out but I think Jim Harbaugh was just. He was just kind of a Unicorn back them. He was just an incredible coach and that was a team that was ready to break out. By the way I mean that was dewars allow Ross. Rosser town inherited I WANNA talk about Aaron Rodgers. Because obviously you played with him and you lived through the Farve Roger Saga. That wasn't a hit all the battle you live through that and and I. I wonder as someone who had a front row seat to that. How you think Rogers and Jordan love will play out in the next two or three years. I think this is just going to elevate Aaron Rodgers style of play. He is the absolute ultimate competitor I feel like he's not the type to look over his shoulder but he understands the game because he's he was on the other side himself. You're in a quarterback. You still feel like you're in your prime. You're doing very very well. You bring in a guy in the first round a guy. You draft a quarterback in the first round. That's says everything I don't care what says Moore he's he's he's getting a sex possession plan in case right there. You know and that's how Breitbart far felt. You know they have to and by first wrong quarterback breath off like you said another five six years let so he was like what is going on. You know what I'm saying. So He's like well I'm GONNA play. I'm GONNA play hard and ended up bringing us to the NFC championship game. Two thousand seven with that awful awful awful defeat. Gosh anyhow yeah I just I just like he's he's done a have announced ending season. This show no they. I see what they're doing. They brought. They drafted the runningback. Abc Aj. Dillon. Also got a tight end to block. They went they got very bulky and the same way almost like mettler obviously is familiar with that. Shanahan style thing I thought access to be. Yeah he wants to be niners Midwest right. Lots of play action. That's what it is. The A ninety broncos right they run they just better run the ball anthro play action of which is actually going to help our rogers to create more space in. And he's he's very athletic quarterback so it's going to help them. I believe that's why he's going to have an outstanding sees. What what when you think about that. Farve Rogers heat or whatever you WANNA call it. That era was the craziest story. Remember the most intense moment where you just like. I cannot believe How how intense this has got you know what I can't come in. Is that any business or drama. That happened on that team in Green Bay. It stayed upstairs when when reference upstairs. I'm always meaning the front office executives so my say thus usually wear those offices are daugherty's so it always say it never came down so the locker room where we split or torn. We knew we were good either way. You know what I'm saying. So for example. Where in practice right we're going against. Brett farve with the starters. And then the backups. Come in and his Aaron Rodgers so a lot of times. We were going into games against quarterbacks who weren't even better than our backup right so we are we. We knew okay once far takes on like we're going to be good because this dude is legit. You know a third string quarterback at the time was not flint who was saying well that part he was in Green Bay. I WanNa talk about two thousand eleven again because you were hurt during that period you didn't you didn't go through the normal offseason. What really happened is that was the eleven you're right was was a lockout. Your yes yeah I just did? I was healed. I just didn't get signed until later at this season. Okay and so you start you go with the giants but how did that off season because that is the only thing we have analogous to this off season? But how were guys preparing set off season? What was different were. They just finding parks to be at or they. You know tax three other guys who down the street they knew played the NFL. You know you saw the report today. I think Danny Amendola and Baker Mayfield are working out together. I mean this is this. Time is making You know very strange alliances. Because people to can't just go and go to their right now. How did that all season play out? And what did guys who differently that? Maybe guys now can learn from well. The thing is if you're not learning a new system you know then. I feel like in terms of exit. Knows it's you're GONNA be okay as long as you are able to study on. Watch them yourself. And I know they're doing zoom meetings. What coaches what have you but in terms of physical training bis actually works in favour because this time of year. They prefer to go to their specialists. You know they're DIPA difference specialist because it's catered directly to them. I feel bad for shake edition coaches on teams because they have to drink a program for sixty seventy guys. They all do the same thing. You have to try to find a way to get them faster stronger but not get them injured. So they're limited. What the resources in type training they can do where when these guys go to these specialized facilities performance centers. They're able to do all that stuff so if guys could they would rather stay at their own places that's interesting point you know. I saw couple people on talk to people about this. And and what changes as far as you can when you're on the zoom calls. You're just doing more tapes. You're doing more learning with you know I. It's more intellectual than normal. All season will be because you can't even walk through it. You can't even go in practice it. You're just learning if the Dan. Quayle telling you about certain coverages you're just GONNA learn it over zoom. That's it if guys are watching more tape and have guys are actually studying more. Because they have to. Because there's nothing else to do. Or because they're mandated because they're sitting in a classroom on their laptop instead of a normal practice. Is there any place that's going to show up on the field that we're not thinking about where it's you know whether or not that's it's two sided? Are they players going to be smarter this year and and less physically capable because they can't tackle or whatever I mean what? How do you expect this twenty twenty season to play out when there's more tape study and less physical activity and that's once again where I come in with okay? This is a year where I I better to stand out in each well because the issue is especially for these young guys regardless of forced to stay home and study you still have to learn how to study. You know what I'm saying. And that was the biggest thing that was my biggest adjustment is okay. I would watch film but I'm just watching a new like boring. I didn't really know what's watch. I'm just watching the game. I didn't know how to break it down and truly a myself on a study. I didn't idol artist studied film and I was always a smart. You know high. Iq bubbler. I didn't really know how to truly study film until year re in the NFL. And I would would sit in meetings and wash. The coach would try to watch when I went home and I still didn't understand it so I remember one day after practice. I was just so fed up. I'm like I'm over here looking at Charles Woodson. Who sometimes those human practice and he goes. Yeah he goes against has two picks so one day I went back to the facility was like seven seven eight o'clock at night and I'm like I'M GONNA learn how to watch the damn film so when I walk into the in the meeting room. There was fluorescent light from the projector was on meeting. The somebody's in there. Somebody let so walk into the bill. Instead of room and mobile it was it was. It was like a stadium style seats. He was really part with a computer. And you say what's up? Nobody's come sit down. Have a seat and watch film. And he told me he's a few things. He Shum like formation. She showed down at distances. Lots of situation of football and basically what he did set himself up to make plays. That's something that I would not be able to find out on my own. You know me unless I show some ALICEA. Has Somebody show me how to do that? And then once I was like okay. This is how you set her. This is how you look film. This is how you study situation because Canada as you know like everyone is. Everyone's spats everyone has some kind of new empowers whether you play or whether you watch it you know that these guys special athletes but the differences is mentally is sit is all of football. That's why women is in it every year. So that's I I can see a lot of young guys struggling To try to figure out how to watch them on their own. So that's you may see. Even you might be Jewish. Were a young guy that they picked up by the ride the Eiffel a bit and they asked to pick up a vet. He's there a thing you can point to where once you not. A city film unlocked a part of football. That you didn't even know was possible to unlock once you once. You started watching it from that perspective Yet because what it came down to so I'll take through it. I just told you know a player. He was asking the similar question. The Hana Watch film and I broke down the sections because I pretty much studied according to the practice plan. So if Wednesday's I knew we were GONNA studied first and second down Tuesday night I will review first and second down on watch anything else the therefore ahead of the game so Wednesdays I review in Wednesday night. I watched third down because we're going to do on Thursday and then there is a practice third-down review and then Fridays was like was a red zone. Goldline two minute and so on and then when I finally watch a full game I put all the pieces together. Where on my okay? I know on third and earn ten. You know somebody's running dig route. I know on this certain Donna Distance. They're doing this and then when you get into the game is like okay. You Trust all the preparation from the coaches. You Trust all the preparation from yourself and then the game is just absolutely slow motion so it unlock it in terms of this. Like believe. What you see coaches aren't they're not every coach. Every coordinator is a creature of habit. He's not going to change much is he does. So that's why a lot for me was okay. You're playing the game because you saw every situation. Yeah is there a you hear about Zoom coaching sessions? And all that stuff is there would you. I guess it sounds like you'd recommend almost like player to player. Whom sessions too. Because you get someone like whoever the Modern Day Charles. Woodson is giving that Info as well. It seems like there's probably opportunities to simulate that sort of thing as well as just the defensive backs coach talking to guys in zoom call. I can see that but it would have to be okay because I can see a situation where you have a guy that's in first position and he may not want to be in a situation where he feels like sharing and helping the people. You know Even when I was drafted Jesuit was signed the same year. And he's like look. I'll never really go out my way but if you ask me a help you you know what I'm saying. So he said Yeah. They brought me a lot of money but they're still going to try to find a way to find somebody better. They're going to do so. You know what I'm saying so I can see it from an outside source maybe the NFL PA on trust is something that they offer something like that. You know to watch them. But I can't really see unless a veteran is like cool. He just wants to give back before he leaves. But that's rare right now. Yeah no no I get that all right. How much money drinking right now. Not Right now. It's only two o'clock in the afternoon or maybe it is right now. No usually usually I hit about. I usually try about Oncho wind by between ten and eleven. Because I'm trying to find new winds for my subscription box but I'm and probably maybe three glasses a day is that your. How tall are you six? So that's not bad right. I'm not I'm not getting. I am not getting wasted. I actually. I'm actually trying one as homework. As as evaluation Saturday's like dinner have leisurely and then Saturdays. We have a good neighborhood. Quarantine drinking our that. We all sing. Hey outside in our lawn chairs and one. That's funny well. I WANNA drink wine when I studied. That's what I did. He go got it all right last question before we get you out of here if they're no fans issue. What is that change about the way the sport is played? Is it going to change the way players communicate because everyone to hear them? Does it change the way you know? I think it was interesting Washington you have a couple of days ago where they say you know. The corners were yelling every time there was a punch thrown because they were trying to sway the judges or that kind of thing. I think there's going to be a million little tiny things with no crowd. It crowd that I think are going to be extremely impactful when you think about playing without fans changes the game how it changed the game first of all completely because one. There's there's no more advantage. There's no more momentum swings from a fan's perspective like the wraps all the Reps. Yeah you're not gonNA have the coaches Santa all right man. Let's was punched in the crowd out of it. Well there's NO DOUBT IN K. EAR. Go TO ARROWHEAD. Stadium is going to be quiet. Which is you know. I think the loudest stadium in. You're not gonNa be thinking of reading places to fly remember every ICE K. Going to New Orleans because they were just route on believable. Like just crazy. Get that you know you're not going to have that. So it's it's a change a tremendously ever gonNA use a crowd noise like we do in practice. But it's it's tough because that's where it is. It's all about the fans you people always ask me. What is a one thing you miss about playing professional football and I would say for most people ninety nine hundred ten times they say? I missed the camera hanging out with my teammates in the locker. Room me I missed walking out onto that field like a gladiator like you. I strap the helmet up and US go through the tunnel whiz quiet and you hear like a muffled crowd noise as soon as you out there is just absolutely nuts. That's that's the most ruling part about it. And that's where that's was gonNA stink about Avenue Fans Derek. Because it's all about I love it. I embrace it if they chair. I embraced me. I remember when I scored a touchdown against the Vikings. I jumped in a crowd and the bike and fans will beer on me. I actually got a couple. I got a couple of sips in the mean meanwhile result. Yeah that's GonNa be tough to miss all that robberies ought to be the same when I I was at the New Orleans Rams NFC championship game. Two years ago I was in the press box and it's open air. Press box there and I remember being legitimately stunned. How loud was in? Like you almost think there's something wrong with you. It's like I've never heard a noise as loud like is yours. I remember like am I gonna be able to write during this little? I couldn't imagine like remembering my defensive assignments as a player like I was just like I can't even like send a tweak right now so route right by your working but at the same time you're also enjoying as the consumer. I think when you're down the field you're just so ready to I make sure you don't get your head taken off the maybe you're trying to take someone else's head off. It's tell you that places absolutely bananas. That's not going to be the same especially since we're talking about New Orleans. That is a place that completely thrives off community especially what they've gone through as a city you know that's it's all about them so it's GonNa be totally different but same time you know. We have football still going to be a stranger. We'll blackman taking so much for joining us now. Appreciate you buddy.

cameras and he gets back to the dugout and before he walks in the dugout he gives he gives a look clubhouse I love it I love all of it baseball needs it but any rate they survived that both pitchers settling in it just let me pause the the gushing over the Washington nationals just first split second and tell everybody how much I love Alex Bregman seven eighth and ninth were the microcosm of their entire month of October just pouring it on when Strasberg and Burland or go out it it's GonNa be Kurt Suzuki that we're talking about the next day thirty eight year old catcher first career postseason home run read homer in the seventh eighth and ninth innings just for good measure just to just poured on let's not forget this game was to to that's exactly what the what Major League Baseball needs I know you might be sitting in his cocky he's this he's that Guy Sleeps with his bat lets everybody know about it then he finally jacks went out and Kurt Suzuki with the blast that's what we love him out October guys that you just don't think could come to the fore like you know what tonight when Suzuki unlocked the top of the seventh and it finished twelfth three nats just pouring on it like last nights one eight in a row and four I don't know if that's the last time for against the Yankees and this up the cardinals for they want to eat neuro pardon me eight neuro they won the last two games the dodgers now but I bet you the Houston Front office when they acquired cranky wasn't you know what we may need lean on the road and the world series to save our season we gotta get somebody else we need one more to use the have a deeper rotation than you I don't think they got cranky to send him to the mound on the road and say save our season and out comes on a ball Sanchez who all he is in the postseason is just a point seventy you can't say that's the end I mean it's not over till it till I know statistically speaking right but if they lose this one then make sure that they got home field advantage in the world series and also and throughout the throughout the playoffs and also too in general just Helen their crushing it I don't want to say any more to fear out of Out of fear of Jinxing at forum but to break the time then and then the floodgates and the floodgates opened up as the Astros become the first team I mean the nationals become the first team in world series history must-win because if they lose this one if they lose this one van your I mean let's just played out case and the only reason I mentioned this because the those ninety-six Yankees were just gelling together and winning for the first time under Joe Torry and giving the Yankees and cardinals did not win okay so it's not over but the nats just bearer amazing fontaine man blotch wins in a row crazy tied for the longest winning streak in sing- single postseason the royals did it in two thousand fourteen and then the had it at our number one of our Thursday program here on the rich Eisen show when I went up eight hole on short rest which means verlander goes on short rest which means it's all it's all out of whack it's all out of whack cousins and the offense was called out by his offense big game tonight obviously for them and then Washington I'll tell you what a soda to call tonight's game on Westwood One radio and I mean if the Vikings take this one this evening win the first two games the world series on the road the Yankees wanted ninety nine and they wrap it up against the braves and then the pre three previous braves Red Sox and they beat Cole and Burland in Houston first teammates each win twenty games during the regular season but loses games one and two of the World Series since Drysdale and Kofi First World Series Championship since nineteen seventy eight totally different ball of Wax Houston won a couple of years ago I just mentioned that because the Yankees and ninety six the last team the fall behind to win a world series by losing the first two at home and then winning at all yanks then won the next four acting Washington to fair this evening based on the fact that they didn't score a single point in downpour P- against San Francisco and it's they would be six into and rooting for the chiefs on Sunday night football because that would that would drop them into a tie the packers into a tie with the Vikings on in the NFC north six and two would be amazing especially it would give them four wins in a row four wins in a row since Minnesota a short week he hasn't played so at Buffalo is the next game and then there's a by buffalo is a tough spot socks in back to back years white and red oh five zero four seventeen runs scored third-most front scored by any road team in the first two games of a world series there ocean's eleven phrase and he won more we got one we we we'll get one more that's not what that's not what they got cranky or they got him so they could it's time to see Dwayne Haskins again I understand you don't want to put them in a short week on the road against when granddaddy was acquired by Houston and obviously we have we can assume what the Houston Front office thanks based on what's going on in that world then I don't know what the Hell's going on over there matches something to discuss later on tonight during that game what's our something else Adam schefter still going on this Brady elsewhere in twenty twenty least likely scenario the era with fourteen strikeouts he's been amazing and Frankie in the postseason has yet to win a postseason game and his area six last four teams tonight certainly since there's a by then is a home game against the jets a home game against Detroit right after if we don't see Dwayne askins then it's a tough defense also but how is this kid just useless for a one one team. I have no idea and that'll be something to be discussed that's a tall order because now Houston Houston turns to Zack Greinke and I I prefer to say this I'll just I'll just spend a quick hot metal on it it's the case keenum revenge game instead it's Adrian Peterson axh-`Ted in one thousand nine hundred sixty five that's what we're seeing remember I said to you yesterday that may be though the Astros could be this year's ninety six sixty four did it overnight and Japan did it overnight hasn't played nine weeks comes out boom sixty four in Japan the what is the name of that term work and prime video that that at least the first quarter is nice and close so they could roll roll roll this whole thing out and scenario I didn't know Adams trolling for clicks he's not he doesn't need to why would you need to there's a need to it is preposterous story they'll have to go to Col- on short rest they're not gonNA throw Brad Peacock out there and try and bullpen their way in a game for that sustained happening down three Oh so they're going to have to throw we'll discuss more of it on this show eight four four two zero four rich number dial here on our program Mike tirico is GonNa Join Scott Eastwood will join us to Rico is about Michigan Notre Dame as you know he's the voice of Notre Dame football it's a big game coming up on Saturday night Chris Fowler will be calling it on ABC Exports Headline Today Four options here most surprising sport's headline today Thursday nats up to Oh world series we just covered that one sure tiger shoots he said the least likely scenario of the three for twenty twenty here his three scenarios retire play for someone else stay put that's pretty much the only three question today Chris Brockman what are you have over there I got two options we can go best.

Co Dot Com Slash E. I S. E. N. welcome back to the rich Eisen show not to my listeners or Notre Dame game in person for me where I get to use my Michigan season tickets I have season tickets to Michigan and go to almost no games very healthy is right in the area of the big house my name is Rich Eisen and I approve this message to Rico on this program how are you Mike Rich probably let the biggest seats all the discomfort around the program right now while we had Charles Woodson on the show yesterday and you know Charles was in town couple of weeks ago because he got hope you relationship I have with your university and it's Funny Fowler will be calling the game right just like he did last week in Michigan and Penn State and right you know my emotion the the Michigan story is almost superseding the last game on the schedule for the rivalry I'm sure that zero he played out hold on him and he said on get up today Schefter gone up forget up and will figure out a way to squeeze each other and here along the way again it was nice when you saw this every year it's hard scheduling wise to do it for both sides The Way College schedules have gone but you know the overriding theme continues to be what's going to happen at Michigan I don't know what the viewers but to this very dear friend of mine host of football night in America also voice of Notre Dame football will be there as a fan this weekend because the man a about the fact that harbaugh had to send or felt the need to send a letter to recruit saying all the rumors of him kicking the tires on the NFL advice since Y I I I think young family kids are going to school at the same school he went to the school he grew up going to chips you're liners directly to you so there's no hassle of going to an orthodontist office and candid cost sixty five percent less than braces and with each alarm purchase candy alson bro You love being jared we trust jared twenty twenty jared twenty twenty yeah you know he was in the Michigan Sports Hall of fame which is as a lock as anything's ever been right and I asked him you know yesterday I think he's as committed to this job as anybody can be and I'm GonNa give you the non-football reason what has Michigan done in the harbaugh tenure that an NFL longer GonNa say hey let's do this I don't think there's much one thousand nine hundred I dunno POW Stafford look good and Patsy are you saying that all right let's take a break we'll come back Mike Torika we'll chat with him he's route to the community are pretty deep and strong and I think he wants to be there he goes past the statue of one back that's what everybody expected and you have not seen these star quarterbacks that are dominating college football be a product of Jim Harbaugh time in Michigan and that's Sir in play they just flat out and play like you know what do you think what do you think he shouldn't have been here you know I think they can be now I know that went to Georgia lost last year they were undefeated so out of hand I should say the answer to that is no they can't be that good I think they can play with anybody in the haven't seen them grow just yet to what I think they could be fully I thought last year's team had established to it was by this point this year's is still his fault is of the buyer this point other than you have wonder rivalry games when the big ten I think I think it keeps coming back to develop a quarter percents are false and you know and he said normally when a coach does that that makes me think that there is some smoke there and I think there are four or five other current college coaches who right now are hot was Jim Harbaugh very good at San Francisco with cabinet yes he was that's country anywhere in the country I really do I just don't know if this team's GonNa hit its Max in the second half of the season I the tough test for Michigan the to know formative people in his life poche Mbacke where everyday when he goes into his office big statue outside the the football building in Michigan the other ones whose Dad Jack was right there families right their mom and dad are living right here them he's got everything you could ever ask for this point and it'll be over the NFL side lifetime ago in on the field football the most recent examples we've seen have not duplicated that I don't know if an NFL teams are going to say we'll be better because they had some pretty good guys on the defensive side of the ball last year who went to the NFL who they get to replace I think on the offensive side of the ball they've had injuries so we where you know harbaugh has been saying that the Michigan offense is so close and it does appear at the offense arrived in the second half of that white Out Game last week in in in in a Happy Valley so my question for you is do you think this offense could actually score on on this kind of stunned that Charles said that he said he didn't get that sense being around the team but I'm wondering what you think what do you think I what he did five years ago with a team that got to the Super Bowl I just don't know if that's the case Mike to Rico here on the rich Eisen show let's get to this game is Notre Dame better team this year than they were last year do you know rich I don't necessarily think I'm ready to say it's a better team I think you'd better team I don't think they're better right now and here's why I match using Promo Code R. E. One oh one that's double your money to start winning today but this is been paying winners for twenty years and his top rated on bedding review sites that the what about the fact that Notre Dame what to Georgia rich and played a terrific game is giving them full conferences they go to an arbiter that they could do the same thing Notre Dame do you do for sure no I think they can I think Notre Dame's defense their defensive coordinator Clark Lee is and and it just the the same thing that I take out of what happened in Penn State and Michigan last week right here level Clark does but I will agree with you I think I've seen most of Michigan's significant games you know maybe I missed the first half of the Middle Tennessee state game but a tremendous coach I really like what he's with defense they don't give you the same look week in week out and they have got a lot of a lot of different options to get to defensively the expectations of the job the academic requirements that come with recruiting football players there and play winning football after the four and eight season they've been exceptional it's not it's not it's not healthy for the sport to have teams out in September in the conversation so to your point about Notre Dame Notre Dame's interesting because the as well no no there's no there's not fatigue I think there's a pleasure that Notre Dame has returned back to the group that is and I say if they can continue this every couple of years the mix will be right to sell the chance to be one of those guys and one of those pickings fewer minutes left with Mike Tirico here on the rich Eisen show put your football seven teams in Notre Dame is right there on the periphery but they haven't broken through to a national championship game is their fatigue going on in South Bend best you can tell it does not at all Mesh with what college football has been about for a long time I think if we elevated back to eight teams make the playoffs where obviously you know you're you're very well versed on what's going on with Michigan and Harbaugh's well as what's going on with Brian Kelly in Notre Dame where we are seeing the in year in year out Alabama and Clemson and Ohio state and of course Oklahoma and we could say the same four five teams in and while that's exciting while it's fun to have this constant conversation in October of Oh they're out of the playoffs or this or that reason I hope we don't tire of it we are seeing the greatest stretch of football by an organization in the Free Agency era off right to die competition wherein eight seed or seven seed could do some damage in the first round against someone like Alabama clemson absolutely there's no doubt is right there with those other schools you mentioned in that no notch below the Alabama's the Clemson's all those schools they get there on a regular basis and that's it I think once team's lose a game okay you're season's over thanks take care thanks for playing you know and we've turned college football into semi pro football and in America hat on your head the best teams in the NFL AFC in NFC I can kind of guess where you AFC magnetically so you've gotta go maybe half that list and then you're still competing in some of the best schools in the country and I think Brian Kelly has found the sweet spot of AH they've only lost two terrific teams on the road or a neutral sites does that satisfy Notre Dame alums no they'd like to be in the championship picture they're right on the periphery academic part of who you can get to play football there is still very significant if you take the top three hundred players in the country Notre Dame recruit all three hundred is not going to get him in school there's no place to hide the scheme or did this offense start to click and find it so I I've heard other people say I agree I don't know what the Michigan offense is yet and I think that's a part of a lot of these and maybe in the history the history of the game going back to fifties and sixties we we really are and sometimes we'll tire of it or we'll look for for Calculus for Notre Dame I I I'm GonNa take a step back I think this playoff you're in college football is damaging college football where they're helping it because you know the the little slight scratch in the Mona Lisa here this is what they do is great they bring in they bring in players and make them better and if they don't make them lineup is big fullback and run inside there it'd be a physical team well because the number of hours and because of the town of college players it's hard to be everything so right moment I think we're seeing the best of Erin I really do and that again there's no disrespect to San Francisco I love what Kyle's done out there I think so the sport went where the sport went spread and pass so bill belichick went where let's get all these great defensive backs in here guess what better they move on and get the next set of players will make them better what they're doing defensively this year is ridiculous especially in the secondary in as each every conflict alive am straight that was my response is that that's the answer to to what you're saying is eight teams eight teams in this year I could see it in the middle of September that there was I don entire third our guest come into my studio and we ended the hour by having him mix Martinez in clinking glasses and the their defense is formidable I think they're half dozen teams in the NFC that I could sit with you right now and say can I see them in Miami at the Super Bowl yeah absolutely I can there and truly at the prime of his career and that intersection of incredible physical talent and the mental capacity of I've seen everything I know how to do the right thing I was named Craig kilborn Mike I heard about that I I've I've seen I've seen killers instagram that was great okay fine with it you best and settle into that a little bit they'll continue to grow mike to go here on the rich Eisen show last question for you on this what about Brian Kelly and Notre Dame their numbers are obscene in terms of the opposing pass now they haven't played the best passers in the League let's see how they hold up when they played better passing offense but I I just love watching I

The Tuck Rule: Remembering one of the NFL's most controversial moments with former Raiders QB Rich Gannon

"Football it on the ground we're by the. Nfl ruled three section. Twenty two article to note to when an offensive player is holding the ball to pass it forward any intentional forward movement of his arm starts a forward pass even if the player loses possession of the ball as he is attempting to. Tuck it back toward his body right. He was inexperienced quarterback he never saw blitz coming in never saw Charles Woodson tilt was too late rich. Gannon vividly remembers the details of a match up. Not Known as Raiders Patriots but rather the. Tuck rule game ball gets hit. Questions was his arm throwing motion come to kind of a standstill. That question still lingers eighteen years later. It's a moment that catapulted a young quarterback. Tom Brady and his second year head coach. They bill belichick towards the legendary status. While lodging. The Patriots Dynasty quarterback was going forward. Those fourteen words delivered by Walt Coleman on a snowy New England night in January two thousand to perhaps Chaves course football history remaining one of the NFL's most controversial in game decisions. I think it's safe to say well. It depends on the outcome year. That this'll be talked about quite a bit. We certainly still talking about the Tuck rule and now we have a chance to discuss the Tuck rule game with Gannon who is enjoying a renaissance of the raiders. After finding a late career grew with head coach. Jon Gruden both of them on the verge of a super. You're showing a lot of great games on the CBS sports network including on Friday April seventeenth at ten PM EASTERN CBS Sports Network. Will be reassuring. The divisional round matchup between the Patriots and Raiders. Infants infamously known as the TUCK RULE. Game tune into classic. Nfl Games on CBS sports APP or CBS. Sports icon by logging in with your provider. The first obvious question about whether amy trask already got mad at me for bringing up. A old old raiders. Things that were not awesome so this is not a comfortable thing for me but you watch this game absolutely. I've watched before a I can remember it like it was yesterday. I can remember the night game. Remember sitting in that hotel room and just watching the snow coming down. You know all day and then we got into buses. We hit lowered the stadium if they're in foxborough lasts. He never played in that stadium between the Patriots and the Raiders. Of course for the chance to go to a championship game and really game. That really I think define both organizations. You know John Bruno's last game. John Ever coached in Oakland before going to Tampa Bay Obviously the Patriots going to win their first super bowl it was really a defining moment in its at. You always look back and say what could have been the one that gain you know. We had a chance of winning a super bowl. John Probably would've stayed in Oakland. Steady traded debate and we play the buccaneers in Super Bowl following year. Lose them so anyway. It's just a it was just a really a transformative moment in Raider. History weren't quite frankly that didn't go. The way we have plant is crazy. How the butterfly effect of some of these plays in NFL history. Like I mean literally just like the talk. Rule comes into play and it launches a dynasty for the Patriots. I mean maybe they don't win the Super Bowl. Maybe bledsoe gets his job back. I I don't think the case but I mean maybe you guys might have set up a dynasty in Oakland. It's amazing how that game really You know really set off in a number of different things and you know I. I can remember as a number of things that happen that in that game when I look at it when I thought about the back of a plane after the game what I could have done differently. What we could have done differently on elephants. There is to place your watch the game on Friday neither to place fourth quarter offensively in that drive. Where the game's over. Charlie Garner gets fast with his work. One play where Steve was new square garden. Pulling if Charlie would have taken the right track and not been downhill so fast. A Stephen have gotten a kick out block. Charlie would've probably hit his head on a goalpost scores. Instead you pick up a couple of yards at saints possession. We haven't third less than a yard. We Walk it wrong. We run fourteen. Last resort staples artists play. Get stuff you just barely get back on. Skin three punt. The football radio gets a bath dragged down the field finished. Jerry kicks that the kid game over that we never step back on the field leading up to it. You have been drafted by the Patriots originally. Did you hold a grudge with New England at all or was it? Oh whatever know anything about draft day story so I got drafted by the Patriots in the fourth round and I remember getting a call from Dick Steinberg the gentleman and they congratulations. We're excited they had. We're just looking to find the best position for you. Might excuse me what he's talking about. Instead I call the Patriots back two days later and said hey look thanks for the opportunity certainly a purpose. I'm going to go to law. School was accepted Journey and so I found a going to law school. But thank you and then four days into that. I got straight the Minnesota Vikings so I never going to law school. Bit On serious about his. I felt like had gone to New England and put on some shoulder pads different shoulder pads and different helmet and tried to play defensive back or running back somebody that when were had never done it in training so I was foolish enough to think I could teach trade change positions and the NFL. Or Make Phil Mix. Is it true story back when you were coming out of college? Coach came up the visit to a Delaware and he wanted to see the backpedal because everybody was talking about him being a defense back and he said to the coats they look. I'm not doing no back panels planes and ask the football league. It's going to be the quarterback and there's also like any anytime you this is what you've done. You've been a quarterback at to the point where you're being drafted in in the NFL. The idea that someone says. Hey Buddy you're not a quarterback anymore is just. It's personally insulting. That's why any of these guys you know when when when they said. Lamar Jackson needs to be a running back or wide receiver. Whoever says it like Lamar Jackson is going to be insulted? Right with these guys right or wrong person's opinion or a couple of people's opinions just doesn't necessarily define who you are GONNA turn out and I just think I had a lot of confidence. That could be a good quarterback at the turn out one point seventeen years at full. You know long enough to last that long but I just think that I knew I knew if I got the right in the right position with the right training the right coaches that I could play it so you know we're down for me but you know it's it's if people think he's a really good receiver he could be a great tight at. He's you know he can play. It's hard to switch positions when you had done it at that level. It's what did they just say. I'm in high school to make a position. Change here even early part college would you get the NFL? Speeding gain the size of these players. The schemes and everything is really difficult. Task that regime in particular. I mean it felt like I and I remember it because I you know I mean this was I was in college. We've been watching. All of these Games are college house and and the like how great y'all were. I think we all bet on the. I would always bet on the raiders over on Sunday night. Because you guys just powder points And we we would correlate with the the clippers over for whatever reason. I don't know why that always happens. Always matched up but we watching those data gamblers. Oh Hey can I tell you that? That's pretty bad. We were living on a house in grosvenor down in a rally But you know it was like a mix of like the perfect timing of all these veterans Charlie Garner in the backfield comes off one hundred and fifty eight yards against jets with Richie. Rice and Brown wide receivers Rowland Williams tight end until about Charlie Garner who fit the system. Perfectly you had these receivers these older receivers you've got on the same page as you and still a bunch of young talent. It was just kind of a perfect meld of of of young talent and veterans who were kind of peaking at the right time for that team. Right we did. I think John was a great coach. he was. He did a terrific job identifying talent I can remember the conversation that we had with With each other about Jerry Rice. He's he said or practice field one day in the spring so I think we can get Jerry Rice. I said are you kidding? Me Says but Nikki get run more play better than just about everybody we have you know. I knew we could get someone to pair with Tim. Brown that it would really help us Tim. Now we'd have wants to punch the that that was that was perfect. And that's Jerry. Rice with his first catch. Tonight has enough for us down. We got we got Jerry. Not only was he a great player. Great and lock Grove young players. He brought he brought a great deal. Professionalism attention to detail how he went about his approach to the game. Took working out to training to studying is terrific. I think we started bringing more of those types of players. High Care guys guys that took great pride in their preparation performance. Each week I so. That team is rolling into the playoffs. Obviously playing extremely well and you get to play New England. And this is not the this is obviously. It's not the Patriots. It's not the Patriots the way we know them now. This is a team. That's been very good all season but Tom Brady is a game. And he's like he says young inexperienced quarterback evening and one of the things. We were talking with Tom Brady about two days ago whether or not he'd be nervous today or not. He said a team may came over and said you know what after the first snap? It's just another football game. Believe that you're going into the snow think Juncker said that he didn't think it was that cold. What what what's your recollection of the the the environment. They're in Foxborough. Yeah it was. It was magic gardening. We went out there and you have a snow falling and and you know it's just a he's right. It wasn't very cold. The wind wasn't a huge factor. It was just really the conditions on the field. That footing wasn't crate The snow started to accumulate. You can really see the numbers at the Hash marks or even the boundary so that was a challenge You know in hindsight conditions like that. I think it benefits the offense in terms of throwing the football field footings going to be a little bit of an issue. I think catching the ball is going to be a little bit of issue with the flakes that the quarterback slava problem thrown at least spent pre-game if you really watch that game particularly the second half overtime. That's all the Patriots defensive backs like you're obviously you can run Ford easier. You can run backwards and slippery snow right whether he thinks it's hard it makes it harder. Defense Landon the pass rushers to the past. They really get good footing it slows down past rush little bit as you point out the defensive backs the cores in the safeties. They're a little concerned about their footing. Not exactly sure where the receivers gone whereas receivers do know where the coney no that definitely get to. They know they know where they're gonNA cut so they're not reacting as much so Yeah it certainly benefits The passing game. We'd probably should've thrown the ball more that game but we were in control. The Game. The second half. We have plenty of opportunities as I said we really We heard ourselves. We had a chance to ice the game there in the fourth quarter late in the fourth quarter of last drive we did finish at all. Yeah Jankowski field goal late in the third quarter of thirteen to three. Tom Brady scores on a six yard. Rushers thirteen to ten and kind of walk us through the setup is a buck fifty remaining in the fourth the pats habit if I intended to the all's forty two. We have thirteen to ten. And Yeah so we talked a little bit about your brady taken over for bledsoe in the jets after the jets game number Mo Lewis. Kind of knock bledsoe boundary. And so time came in and now they did a nice job but he wasn't the most experienced guy and so we catch him with a a perfect he doesn't see it. He's late to react Like most young quarterbacks he he just immediately spun away and look the opposite direction but not realizing it was zone pressure. So we're let's being one-sided dropping the other once he realized that he was kind of stuck had nowhere to go with football he was GONNA get sacked. I think he didn't want to put the ball on the ground light. I think it happened so quick for he was stunned by the time tried to react. Woodson hits knocks the ball out on the ground again. You Watch it's kind of funny because Brady's six foot out train trip. I knowing that he can't get to the ball because he's wrapped up by woods crawls on our satellite game. We felt like it was over. I mean we just go down overall a couple of times games. Over as it turns out you know they. They put together a couple more places to drive an really the kick. It wasn't kicking overtime at one. That was a short while but it was a kick the Senate Game. No Return one of the greatest kicks ever seen. I mean and of course coming from you. Know One of the one of the greatest kickers in the history of all out of interrogating this is the Patriots season on the line away. That thing barely made it. It was kind of a line. A line drive Didn't have a lot of hype to it. Footing wasn't great. I know he was out there. Prior to the KID trended clairol snow but it was pretty. It was pretty amazing that gained got it over time. And then you know the the problem over time is to go out for the coin toss we lose the. Toss Patriots get the ball. We sit there watch but after building that that's kind of how the game ended Patriots Sixteen. I can to make matters worse. The locker rooms terra. We had a deal with the media and all that then we finally ordered Airport the plane can take off because the snow we staying on the buses couple hours did get back to the bay area until I don't know probably nine o'clock next morning so it was. It was a long difficult painful way to end the season. And then you know about about four or five days went by and I would always meet with Gruden and and we talk about you. Know kind of You know the indices and we'd Kinda Rehash the season where we could get better things differently. Remember going into his office and yet all the lights off and he's just sitting there and he wasn't doing well and I just got the sense. He didn't say that silent the sense that that was probably his last night's Kareem's and for John Excruciating and the despair all year long fight. So I think you've got the game. We played back then. You lose it over time to get back to the play the curious you know you could tell that he just felt like I mean I it just it just pulled it apart like it was just it was just too much. He he indicated you know. I think it is not an easy place to work out. You know out had been you was getting up there in years and I think there was It was kind of a a challenging relationship by out. Had some strong opinions about what he wanted to see and he was very involved in the personnel decisions when it came to the draft free agency and and even the final cutdown for Ross. John had some differences of opinion on some of those things. I think the relationship began to have its issues. I think there was a there was some talk about John. Getting a contract extension during that lead up to the play offs and I think they had agreed in principle with junk contract agents. There's different things in the contract. So that was the end of I. John Basically had off and then they kind of You know had some conversations. I wasn't aware them at the time I just know going. I knew John so well. We were like brothers. I just knew him so I knew it was right and when I went into his office he said sit down and say all the ways that we've you know we've been we've he kind of went back to his history of the rate is all the bad things happen. Yeah I just felt maybe this is not gonNa Handle I. I thought it was and then I think it was shortly thereafter that I found out that out straight into the buccaneers. Which you'll in hindsight I think anyone who's been around football will tell you that. Alyssa brilliant hall of Fame Legend You Know Maverick. But that was the decision I thought he ever made as the on other Oakland Raiders. I mean you could easily argue that. It cost him a super bowl. I mean based on just they of course but a multiple super bowls. We had a really good team. I mean we had the team that year year before you know. We really good teams in the championship. Game you know back to the division around me. We we were roller. We're bringing the right type of players so you would go the super bowl year after. Outta you know so So we it's a shame because I think John Lewis State. We would have ended differently. Certainly for for the raiders. I I think we could add onto multiple super bowls he? He's a really good football coach. I mean he's still doing a good job. Coaching football right. Now back to the play and how was was GRUDEN. Were you order than Gruden? At the time about your night. You mentioned your brothers. I mean I think you were thirty six that the year the Tucker Games I mean like He. He's he's very young head coach with that that that relationship is crazy. Because you just don't see that sort of like what the closest now is like McVeigh and Jared Goff. John and I were were Bertha feather I mean we. We pushed each other courtesy southern each other l. each other but when it was over we're after game that's the first guy. I looked to block. I'd just had great respect for him for his body of work. He didn't amazing job. Preparing us for games as weak particularly may give real detail quarterback tip sheets arm Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. And we'd have so much you know he would stall the package of plays and install the game plan and he'd meet us meet the quarterback meeting. He basically coached. The quarterback basically called the offense Wore number of different hats but he was very innovative Israeli breast with a he. He was an excellent play caller. Still think he's an excellent play caller. I think they're going to get things turned around there in Oakland I. He's committed to doing it. The Right Way He's worked hard to change the culture and the environment. They're trying to bring the right type of players and I think he might. May Aachen and Mark Davis will turn around just to go back to the play a question I hate to keep bringing Taco but like how. How long did it feel like wall? Call him was doing that. That offer they are going to under two minutes review whether or not. Brady's arm was in motion. Or whether whether it's an incomplete pass or a fumble. I don't think there's much much doubt Greg but I think there's so much confusion on the boundary. And then you know. It's the snow's commented we're your coalition out. There had been a long game and we're just waiting to figure it out and you know I remember having a conversation general silence about. Hey look. Here's the situation. We're GONNA go down. You know a deal on this game's over the next thing you know we got. The call was going forward. John is blue of us. Look Look John Gruden's reaction on the sidelines. E is ready to kill. You know while common so but I just think that there. There's a lot of discrepancy in terms of the interpretation of the rule. And what happened that Brady stop his arm and I? It's funny because short. I think a couple of weeks later we brady went to his first pro bowl and so we're together in Hawaii in the locker room during the week and I'm talking to them and we're talking about the play and he's got a smile on his face. He Says Yeah. I never saw Woodson it so it's too late. Exactly what happened just as I described it. He he gets. He got fooled hot. It wasn't there. He pulled the ball down And then the ball got knocked out so but it is what it is. It's a part of NFL history and the chance to watch on Friday night. You think it's the most controversial play in. Nfl history is one of them. You know I think you look at the immaculate reception you crawling. When they start naming is done name you know yeah ways and gains the talk radio game that you know. It's something happens something or something. Yeah the funny thing is a lot of these games. Involve the raiders. Right John Mad- to this day. Only role won't talk about the game. Nfl films. Everyone else has asked him to be on these programs. Let's talk about paint. Man Just did a big breakdown paints places about the immaculate reception where he got. You know Frankel Harrison Terry Bradshaw and You know once you once you guys together to Kinda Reenact. What happened? But let's go parts of do you think. Do you buy the idea at all that. It was a conspiracy against Al Davis. I know that people which is ironic by the way. It's like a conspiracy to help the Patriots now at told people back in the day now I mean. Do you think it was. Do People talk about that? At all amongst raiders. I in building. I don't I don't believe it and I quite frankly. That was a problem that we had internally. It's something I really dealt with for six years at ours. They're remember criminal from Kansas City. When I can't see for four years we absolutely dominated. The raiders might four years. There were seven one against the raiders. And so we really own that rivalry. I can remember coming from Kansas City to the raiders. My First Season Oakland and here in players say while the rest are like. That's the right call holding against us because we were black jerseys naked CR hands at all. This foolishness. Nonsense. I said guys you know until you realize that this is. This is just It's it's it's a loser's mentality that's so you start realizing that this is not the way the league works. Commissioner doesn't hate the raiders officials. Don't hate the raiders. They officials have jobs to do the call again. The way they say that they don't they great on every play in every game. They don't do a good job in a CA- chance to work playoff game. Since who knows how it works of the resent that mindset that mentality and it was not productive it was not conducive to winning and I worked hard long and hard during my tenure as Raider to try and eradicate that mindset that talk about guys. Let's just go out and play good. Football play smart football. It's not be the most penalized to league every year Wayne about. Yeah it's when you start when you spend enough time around people in the League office and around. Nfl teams as you realize there's bureaucracy there like there's not something like secret little room where. Roger Goodell's hatching evil plans against owners. He doesn't like now. You know if there's an opportunity of power stuggles happened at every business. Now that may be the case. But there's no evil conspiracies out there like imagine a referee trying to spending his time trying to call fouls against the raiders. Because he doesn't like the League doesn't like Al Davis instead of like it just reveling. A game is hard enough as it. Is you point out the graded on every single thing. You mentioned you would think you guys would have won the superbowl that year right. We had a really good team. I do think we have the firepower on offense Better offenses in football. We're balanced. We could run the football yet to really good backs and Charlie Garner entira weekly. We had a really good fullback. Thunder lightning combat. We also had Crockett. It was the best Arjun goal-line back in football. Good offense alantic pro bowls of the offensive line. And you know we had a really deep the defense that could Ross. The pastor could play coverage we had. We had it really good talented teams. Who could young kickers valujet? Cousy and Shane So we really felt like we had a chance to do some damage but offer not after after that game and heading home and then I think the biggest the biggest blow was really losing grew That was a new finals. Bad decision and ultimately it came back to a hundred art that two thousand and two season was last link. Season at the raiders. Had I think like you know twelve years or something like that? There's a long one. Twelve games with Del Rio and and yeah so it was it was a it was a. It was a drought and They had so many. I think that a stretch of ten years where they have like seven head coaches and twelve. Different quarterbacks you know so. He brought northern after bill. Callahan was presumed fired because Davis refined and in our shell came back the second time which was like his version of Joe Gibbs recreate gruden by bringing in Lane Kiffin. And that's when things just went real. So yeah there's there's some crazy decisions there and You know I just if not exist. A it was a low point in the history of the organization some really poor decisions that that ramifications in the one thing. I noticed him or when you look at Ray. Organizations in in professional footballers things that have yet to have continuity consistency leadership at every level the organization owner. I have gentleman's head. Coach quarterback and the raiders just had so much turnover during that stretch that it was just too much to overcome in a big reason why they have it was seasons Yep Well listen I feel like I said I don't feel good about going down memory lane like you're stuck in your house but but thank you for doing it. Rich people can tune into CBS sports network. On Friday April seventeenth at ten PM. Eastern will rear the divisional round match of the infamous. Tuck rule game And you can watch these on the CBS sports APP. Cbs SPORTS DOT COM by logging in with your provider haven. Thanks so much of the time and this season in well but like it was an incredible year. And then what do you WanNa be pee? What do you WanNa be after Gruden was gone? The right two thousand two thousand one was our last year with John and so it was. It was right had a great run and Oakland. I love love playing and there will be a part of sober. I could enjoy the game should I unfortunately It's hard for me to watch the last couple minutes? Thanks again. Rich so rich turns a dial at the one fifty mark of the fourth quarter. We don't to explain much about what happened. Next Patriots beat the steelers in the AFC championship game and stunned the Rams in the Super Bowl after that it'd be as Cliche as humanly possible. The rest is history as mentioned Ginowan League. Mvp The following season and share the record for the oldest to win. The award until Tom Brady stole that from him to as he was named the. Mvp in two thousand seventeen at age forty. We hope you enjoyed a trip back in time to the. Tuck rule game as always. Thanks for listening to talk to you guys.

Qb Dot Com and grab me. I'm happy to be here you know I've been covering the League on well on a full-time basis since two thousand four I covered the dolphins for the Palm Beach Post we'll talk back to you to get some comments out there on social media where you can follow us as well on twitter today joining the show we have miles as Simmons and Adam Hill. I'm excited it's I think it's an exciting team it's an up and coming team it's a team that I I expect as long as their quarterback doesn't fumble Ah have currently still have my own website covering the Patriots up close but now I'm at in sort of a national slash raiders spin to this thing and out of the end zone from the one yard line too often going forward this should be a team that should contend for a playoff spot so I'm interested to see what happens the rest of the year is trying to do that today I mean you know maybe maybe Clowney is somebody who could do it possibly but like it's very few and far between but he did that and on the show today we are going to get into more things with Gregg about what he just said where the raiders stand we also have a betting statement lined up for you todd dewey we're going to break down the keys to the black and so I think first and foremost you know he was a writer at heart but in terms of the NFL I mean you're talking about the guy who invented bump and run coverage I mean you know now but he says the nobody wanted him to wear that number twenty four more than Willie Brown I mean Greg you've been in the NFL for quite some time what can you tell us about Willie Brown the passing of we're trying to bring a right kind of people in here we think can build championship football team has the most loyal fans in the world I know it hurts that we might not mm-hmm and what he meant to this organization well I mean first of all in terms of the raiders I mean I don't think there was any former raider you know the Oakland raiders forever but we are still waiting action I think it's going to be getting army coming into things now in today's NFL has become such a man coverage game defensively and really Willie Brown pioneered that he really did it because he had to. I mean you're talking about Erkel figure who was more proud of being reiter than Willet Brown and I think that was first and foremost you that was reflected in Mark Davis statement how and he wasn't going to run with some of these guys we got physical with them and you know the the highlights that you see you see that over and over again in for him you know he really pioneered game with the raiders here this wild road trip that started back on September fourteenth with the Minnesota Vikings will finally come to a close with the much he meant to his family you know he he he was a fixture at training camp at Games This is a guy who really believed in in almost blue blood silver here's an from GRUDEN and from really everybody in the organization was just the passion that he had for the organization and how much like you could just genuinely tell his love lead Jon Gruden before he took questions in the media kind of opened up and just said hey listen I just want to talk about this this is something that's very important to me and I think what you what you got from the plate Houston is this something like that they get extra fire in their belly to try to make you know Willie Brown proud and the organization proud as they head into face these hey that was a true raider at heart as Charles Woodson had said in his statement about Willie Brown I mean as the team heads in maybe more the road trip coming to an end and how all of that has kind of played out might be a little bit better as more motivating factor than some sometime like your Derek cars of the world may be Rodney Hudson is another guy that comes to mind because he's been around for so long but I think just generally though I think figuring out at first and he's like kind of what's going on with this guy then realize like man this is just a guy that loves this organization and loves this franchise so I think all everybody that talked about him Arocca obviously with the organization that will do that number proud I'm sure as this carries on and his career starts going on wearing that twenty four will really mean thing like this I mean but it is a difficult time in and around the Raiders Organization in terms of you know legends passing away cliff branch pass away just before the start of the regular for the raiders and everything about the franchise and how it came across to all of them they they all said hey the first time we met him we just got how important this all was to hit since I think that sometimes that kind of stuff can only go so far and I think especially because in a way Willie Brown was kind of I don't see removed hill and you didn't see you didn't see the gestures for so we're all in the house and also joining us today we have Greg Yard he is nfl writer here at the Review Journal from the organization but he's not as necessarily close to some of the members of the organization some of the younger players as he would have been to a players who have been around for a while where did you gather from the sense of the team as far as the passing a willing brown like how much right now is that we're gonNA sation feeling that loss you can tell were again those tackling issues and I think at the end of the day Jon Gruden is right when he says he wants to see the younger players in what they can do Trayvon Molin is a guy that drafted in the second that and for that reason he'll go down as one of the greats the position Adam you and miles were down in Alameda yesterday. Where the raiders practice really important for your to the Raiders Organization but today I'm not necessarily sure how much that motivates them well not playing but still wearing that twenty four Jonathan Abram he's so I think that's kind of the sense you got Derek kind of talked about being one of the first people he met when he was drafted by the raiders in You know just he kinda often not but that's not really the scheme here in the raiders defense so miles what do you make of this trade with Conley all Jon Gruden says it's about the fact that they wanna play some of the L. Name now we've been working together for so long I get you to name forget your name at all I was just pointing at you and you weren't looking up like this week Heidi let's miles is being nice because he covers the team on the day to day basis which I totally get you know he's picked each choosing his words carefully there were other runs where he just you know whiffed on tackles I mean that's just when you're trying to build a team like the raiders are obviously and you know they want their foundation something him I'm sure but let's get into some of the latest news here going on with the team we're big trade that happened as far as in the secondary Wick Area Conley season is well not something that John Gruener yesterday too so I think in some ways yes it's something that they can rally round but I think also just from the culture standpoint you know yes he is to be tough hard nosed disciplined guys and they have a ways to go on the discipline part but just in terms of toughness gehring Conley is two guys who were drafted by a previous regime yeah these are the kinds of things that are going to happen and so that to me explain everything with colleagues just kind of weird that they're going to go see him the raiders He struggled a bit here this year but it might be because it was more of a zone system maybe you know he was looking to play that man to man more more not measuring up and when you have a guy who was drafted by the previous regime and you know I think miles and Adam have done a really good job pointing out about how you know what tackle guys bring them to the ground and he wasn't just he just wasn't doing that and I think from that standpoint you want guys that are going to be tough they're going to be rugged that are going but this is not a one game thing this is a guy who you know when you play this type of scheme you count on those quarterbacks to come up and tackle tough on the edge and there was and to be able to really be the kind of quarterback that you need them to be among order to be successful and just right now Cali there were some breakdowns in coverage there there was a play early in the game where you know he just didn't have his head on the swivel and he totally lost containment on the edge in and didn't even threaten a run that went for ten yards anger players but I think it's a twofold thing I think one the performance just was not great I mean I think you could look at what happened in that packers game there are some times under Jon Gruden or you're going to be gone and I think it sent a signal to the locker room and I thought it was smart to do at this point because this is a really crucial part of the season for this raiders team it's Conley with just one of those guys who was not doing it and I think they send a message to the locker room they said look you better strap up you better tackle hard or else you're not going to be playing for this team answer like six or seven guys left from the previous regime that's it just in like two not even two years they are looking you better come and play the raiders way let's call a spade I mean gehring Conley showed a lack of a real lack of toughness and guts in that game and I think that Jon Gruden was just six again it wasn't him it wasn't his regime it was the previous regime and I think those guys have learned if you're not buying in and you're not fully fully sold into the program you're going to be moving on I it is and it's unbelievable to think about now but this is a guy who was a defensive end and tight and in college and then he converted to cornerback in the pros I mean just think about any of the he was going to head to Houston anyway but now he's going to do it to face his former team the raiders is former Ohio state standout drafted in the first round of two thousand seventeen kind of you know it's do or die especially this week against the Texans who is a team that they could be in a playoff race for for a wildcard spot these guys need to step up their game really weren't going to get a third round pick out of anybody else so I think when you have a guy who you drafted in the first round and you believe him to be a bust there's only so much I do think you know it's one of those things that stands out in your mind and you say yeah he's been very very hesitant to go into contact the last couple of weeks and certainly against Green Bay absolutely was and sure I mean it's not even just coverage right like connelly could have been able to get his head in there and say probably get his body in there and really it was a huge factor of him not being willing to be physical right now the last couple of weeks and I think that was a big part of moving data makes a very valid point that you get the physicality definitely is something needed I think miles how do you grade this and the trade that the raiders made getting third round pick you know I think they probably got the best that a lot with NFL players that they get a neck scare and things like that and they kind of you know contact a little bit but when I went back and I watched some film of Mullen one of the around as a Johnson is a guy that they drafted in the fourth round and he's not eligible to come off of injured reserve yet but he's somebody that they want to see play so when you have guys that you've drafted yourself as because they have moved on from almost all of them but I do think it's interesting first of all car kind of pointed that out about mullen he said he's GonNa stick there and make plays that was not an accident even I just talked about how genuine that wasn't how much came across whenever you were around him and miles when a team has this kind of loss of the sense of somebody that meant so much of the organization round pick that's pretty good value and the raiders did go pretty heavy on these clemson guys that being trayvon Molin number forty in this past drafts not only did Mullen beat his blocker but he came up and he made a tackle for one yard loss and that's the kind that's the kind of stuff you need on the edge in this defense or you're just not gonNA play the moment and I'm wondering how hesitant he's been because of that how much that changed him and I think you need time before he WanNa talk about that or anybody on the team would really want to talk about that but so the trade deadline comes up here October twenty ninth grade do anticipate the raiders making more moves before then you know I'm not sure about that I don't know maybe these guys I don't know if it had something to do with that play it was something to do with that scare of saying hey this could all be over and you know in an instant and you never know on the field those are things that are interesting but certainly for years in order to truly great out the trade but at least initially I think if you have a guy who you don't believe can be a starter and you end up trading him for yeah I mean he just hasn't made an impact on the field I know one of the things he talked about yesterday was he's very very angry at pro football focus and you can read about that Oh you're going to be able to get back now obviously we have to see who they pick with this third rounder in been wow that third rounder then performs over the next three is plays came up was in week three against the Vikings he got into the game and there was an off tackle run by the Vikings and you know not only did off hand I don't know where these guys are as far as cap room but I mean if if I'm the raiders of the things I was looking over with their stats is like and you see this in the Game Jon Gruden not specifically talking about them but said hey these guys are just looking for saks he's doing other things I haven't seen it I don't know what he's doing out there he just has not been a playmaker pretty struggle it's still very early in his career I'm not saying it's don he's never going to be good who knows it just hasn't been there yet so I certainly don't in in you know we're still waiting for Trayvon mullet said when he was he said Hey I'm gonna go make a tackle if it's to my time and make a tackle I'm GONNA go make attack on I'm GonNa do that but I I I do think it's interesting with Gary on comedy though I wanna go in a played out against the packers to these guys just do not get pressure on the quarterback and I don't know if Farrell coming back and getting more into the mix is just going to solve that coming up today is that fair almost like yes he who is forty six point eight one hundred nine out of one hundred twelve qualifying edge defenders free pro football focus and he said those guys have been wrong all the way back to college where they said our divine sucked and I thought it was the best of Lyon College football history that's according to clean the fraud it's not happening I know that there's another guy that I've gotten about thirty questions about from the Patriots I cannot see and I don't know I've seen a and I know you know one of the things that said he hasn't been on the on the edge a whole lot he's had to move inside out of necessity they've needed bodies and he's been playing inside a little bit but when he's on the outside the most unreliable players in NFL history. I mean he I can't even remember the last time he finished the season with a team and you know there's there's always when bill belichick does something there's really do them well Adam you said it might hurt it was kind of a nod to Max crosby and his ability to kind of get to the quarterback right now been a difference maker playmaker while Cleveland for all has he does get a chance to to rush the passer your he's just not showing up not only not getting sacks you're just not even seeing him in the backfield and seeing them you know pressure anybody so it's been an issue as a reason so I don't know I haven't heard anything from people there about him sort of slacking off and maybe there's but maybe they're seeing some sort of some of the signs that led up critical condition accounts from one October or visit review journal Dot com back slash podcast for more information now on Vegas nation I just don't I don't think I don't think there's an appetite for that around there but I guess you'd Never Yeah I mean look you know I've covered Gordon Close for a couple of years I mean you know we're talking about one to him getting suspended again last year I will say he's been very unreliable in terms of his health this year he's had knee problems all year he quick break step away talk to todd about some betting numbers for the raiders this week but when we come back we're going to talk about this upcoming game some injuries and get you caught up here with at this point as they head into week but what I'd like to do now is turn it over to todd do ers sports betting columnist here at the Review Journal. Who's going to tell us scene of anything happened with Josh's Gordon today but I cannot see that happening people are begging for him that with with what materials Hayward Bay with what they went through with Tonio Brown if I had to pick one thing because there are a bunch of things on defense that they need but if they could find a veteran pass rusher that could really add something to mix up I think that would ardenne keys well who's who's injured right now and hasn't really been a difference maker either so these are guys that they're looking to make a you know an impact of getting the quarterback and putting pressure on guys they're just not doing it everything's sulfur and blacks to stay tuned all right as we had to the midpoint of the season we had a little bit discussion there on how we're raiding the raiders he had a a a and it wasn't from making hit it was Some contacted he had with Abram on the sideline it was just a kind of a fluke fluke play but he was card off it was a very very scary you know he bent his knee back in the giants game I would not be running to get on the Josh Gordon Train and as we head into Houston we're going to take valued they probably that was being offered and that's probably the weirdest thing about why he's with the Houston Texans right now and why they're they sent him there the week that they're going to play the Texans I mean one it might hurt it maybe I mean these guys just they they they have to get more pressure on the quarterback you know the raiders it was very telling certainly what would has it has hey we want to get younger and it's amazing to say that when you were trading at twenty four you're all the way you just drives him in the first round a couple years ago but back and having to have time haven't had time to do it only got some film from last year because remember going on comey had a huge scare in week one against the Broncos he was carted off the field the shop that brutal six week stretch away from Home Evan at home game since September fifteenth couple of sevens out there too if you want to take the rate is getting seven the numbers are on the raiders this week in the betting world todd what do you got for us. Yeah thanks I e the raiders getting six and a half points at Houston as if eighty Fang for all the guys here on the show thank you so much for listening kneecap last week and even if he doesn't play though Kansas City's at ten days to prepare and Andy Reid is at ten days to prepare backup quarterback Matt Moore Colts are also a five and a half point favorites at home as you might recall over the raiders when they lost thirty one twenty four speaking of the chiefs sharps took the chiefs getting foreign it's a fourteen now the dolphins owen sex but the covered their last two games over the redskins and bills steelers coming off the bye after beating the child sharps took the charges getting five points at the bears net on the look ahead line they always have the next week's games are up at the West Gate right now before this year but neither team has lived up to preseason hype sharps on the charges at bears sharps also took the saints at home over the cardinals which has been inconsistent coming off the law said Indianapolis and their offensive line's getting beat up again giving up a lot of sacks. Jj Watt is on the decline there. Oh Alvin Kamara back this week the cardinals won three straight but not executive murderers row of bengals Falcons and giants charts also on the Brian Redskins last week so I'm GonNa let you tell us who to take maybe this time I'll listen it's tough to take the redskins I couldn't pull the up to thirteen now actually they bet on the browns before Monday night football so now the line is higher based on the Patriots Dominate Defense isn't what it used to be so couple sharp guys I talked to a leaning to the raiders who got that another draft pick from Houston for next year's draft in twenty five years at a team covered without scoring but yeah got some sharp plays around town both through them here for you the chargers it's not technically a sharp play but people I spoke with our high on the raiders and upset about this one they would take the raiders. Okay well what else do you have for us what are the they don't want open at seven and a half and it's up to ten and a half right now the sharp stick the saints at Ten Saints won five straight with drew brees but they might get him back and raiders but only ten days ago they were gifted a win over the lions on Monday night football but now everybody's all over the packers back so it goes getting sticks at the colts that number down to five and a half Denver's at ten days to prepare for that one after a whip by the chiefs at home without Mahomes for this Sunday's games in that that number went from six and a half down to four teams are expected to be contenders this year to go on the playoffs last the first half it three and three straight up and against the spread and two and two straight up against the spread during this stretch games away from home we'll end here in Houston the chiefs play there for the sharps and then the sheriff's also took the dolphins game fourteen and a half at the steelers Monday night football the look headline was seventeen This episode of Vegas Nation will be right back SDN sports is the only sports betting APP you need to season sign up today ages on the road and one more share play the shops are all over the browns over the Patriots getting eleven and a half eleven and ten and a half that line you're of Mahomes can't go in there also getting a couple of guys back from injury in yeah the packers are probably at their stocks at their highest right now after lighting up the today we are talking all things raiders and of course this week eight matchup coming up in Houston the Raiders last game this strenuous road trip that they've been did you sign up bonus of up to fifty dollars welcome back to Vegas Nation it's Heidi Fang here along with Adam Hill Mile Simmons and Greg but are joining us okay with this Plantar Fasciitis issued that has been going on for the last few weeks and that's kept him out for the last few weeks so he said that he just has to see how the foot recovers he's a little bit optimistic a little bit yesterday during that media window he is at least on the field he is doing things in so this week looks like it's gotTa be it's a much better chance to play on performance against the jets thirty three nothing win Brown's coming off a buy a home loss to the seahawks after they throttled by the niners Patriots of course rolling eighty hard considering that explosive offense and the explosive nature of it in how well does Shawn Watson can get the ball down the field to I think this was going to be kind of tough for the register and a half and four at home over the packers the number now is Donna three and a half Patrick mahomes practicing this week after dislocating let me again they've only allowed forty eight points in seven games the storage defense air shaping up less than seven points a game but the browns took the sharps took the browns said but I think there's there's other potential you know really tough injuries the deal with the judge Jacob situation is is one that he's come out of pretty much every are we at miles right now with a couple of key players particularly tyrel Williams and Trent Brown yeah we can start with tyrone Williams he was able to practice on Wednesday nick about his potential availability to play but it's still is kind of murky as of this point and then I think Trent Brown to really monitor this week I don't think it's it's absolutely certain that Josh Jacobs goes in men that's a big loss of he doesn't go Gabe Jackson we know came back after missing the first five games herbs on in week eight over on the NFL or you tell me Heidi dingy take skin gloss. We didn't listen to you todd and I did not take the wins I sneak out way for to get to practice here miles is a sneak away final score what's your pet final score I would say probably something game I think almost every game this year there's been time that we're sitting up in the press box hang up there goes Josh Jacobs back to the locker room now he's been able to play through it but he got he got like thirty five to twenty Houston and he's gotTa go okay had a run like no joke so he had to get out last week at least at this point so I if you get those guys back you're going to have a much better chance of of taking on Houston and beating them but it's still gonna be on the has been probably very taxing for a lot of these players a lot of guys are banged up so let's get the report right now for miles who's been down in Alameda and been able to see these guys where a to the practice in Alameda so he'll be updating throughout the day can we're recording here on a Thursday so this coming out on Friday you'll be able to check up the sharp report there Heidi we'll see how they do this week all right todd and for everybody out there who is looking for information on sports betting particularly Tyrone Williams and Trent Brown status you can give miles a follow at miles ace on twitter but let's get into this matchup here for put into him the Monitor I will say that we only saw you know we only get to see them going through like position drills and there's nothing really strenuous going on but trip around on the field he did he was not moving well the pointed out to me is the conspiracy theories out there that don't think he's injured that thinks he was sitting out not because of injury because of the disciplinary issues. I don't think

Silver & Black Pridecast Ep 23: Talking Hard Knocks premiere, scrimmage with Rams

"Welcome back everybody silver black friday i am i am not flying full of the day after the last couple of episodes where they were just layer interviews from camp. I am back with my partner. In crime tyler smith a raider commisson. We're just going to talk about the latest things going on with the raiders in just the raiders in general and whatnot and the the latest latest is this article from dr chow from the san diego union tribune giving his take on <hes> antonio brown's injury there there were reports out there that that was frostbite and <hes> i was speaking with a medical professional that i know and and we both kind of kind of agreed i think with dr child was saying that if it were literally frostbite it would have been far more severe and it probably would have affected acted his toes a little bit more than the rest of his foot so i kind of understand what dr chows were talked to house coming from did you did you get a chance to read that article article <hes> tyler and what did you think yeah i did. <hes> it was pretty interesting. I i really don't think it's as severe as some of the talking heads on tv have made it out to be <hes> <hes> as you said for us by generally affects the toes and the digits first before it affects the inside of the threat <hes> well. I think just happened. Here is is just got a little bit rid of a chill from the crow chamber that he was in. I don't really think this is gonna affect <hes> effective long-term at all <hes> it might keep him out of some practices the preseason <hes>. I don't think it's going to go into the regular season at all. I don't think it's a a long term concern whatsoever. Well you should you. You say that because that's literally what it says. At the last paragraph last sentence of this article says this should resolve soon it might affect his preseason preseason time with new quarterback derek carr but should not come close to affecting his regular season availability. Now you can look at that in a couple of ways <hes> you could say all the starters weren't gonna be playing in the preseason anyway so affecting his preseason. I don't think that's really the issue here. <hes> the the way i would look at it is if you wanna if you wanna look at it in a way that <hes> that's because this isn't positive let's be. Let's be honest with that. I mean if you you want you want to be the type of person says not a big deal. I mean are you that type of person. Do you think it's not a big deal. I think it could be a big deal. Only because antonio brown is so good that he pushes the secondary during practice to be better and if he's not there they're not getting sharper and he's not we're learning the offense. He's not out there in the offense installed and that's really what the preseason is for if you're a starter getting on the same page as your teammates after so many i'm on saw so that that's the only thing that concerns me about it. I was that is definitely as that's an aspect. I it wasn't on the forefront of but you're absolutely right as far as might like my thinking. Was that yeah you you. Make your teammates better. When you face the best of your teammates i mean you look at the the ramsey came today and we'll get them a little bit later but but they are good everywhere and their receivers are they're all the better for being able to face a keep to leave and marcus peters in practice every day and vice versa so that is definitely a thought something take something to consider the fact that the raiders corners are trying to get better and the way that they're gonna do that. Make you talking about this way. They're going to do that is by facing the best and antonio brown is the best even though he tortures them just about every day in every time it happens. You get a little bit better. You learn a little bit something more so that when you get into that game if you face anybody even close to his caliber which there aren't a lot of receivers that are close to his caliber you fair a lot better and but the you mentioned being on the same page as your teammates and there's no no player on this team he's more on the same page with then derek carr and they can talk all they want about reporter off the field and how they got together in the off season and they got on the same page. They're getting used to the speed and everything but training camp happens for a reason there is a purpose behind it and acting like it's just this thing that happens that that that puts these players at risk for injury is a serious discount to the importance of training camp preseason bach be damned who cares who preseason is is is basically meaningless except for maybe the third week when they when they mock regular game week and they get you know they kind of get back in the field. Oh for things but really the work gets done in camp. The work gets on that field and camp. Were you get that playbook and you get your teammates and you put it in your body. Put all that stuff in your body you it becomes second nature and you get on the same page and he's not having that he's not getting that right now and you can tell it's frustrating jon gruden in his press conferences. He's it's getting frustrating for him. I saw him last year with martavis. Bryant and martavis bryant missed a few practices here and there because of migrants and he was endlessly frustrated with that well i i <hes> we'll get hard knocks a little bit later on but one of the things that stood it out to me from one of the first things jon gruden said. Was you know we have to go hard and practice. We only get so many practices we used to do three two days a day <hes> and it and he said they've incarcerate me for that <hes> and with those low amount of practices that they have for safety reasons every practice counts in accounts a lot more when you're new to a team and that's what antonio brown is missing out on and that's what his teammates are missing on with him in in the full just getting used to him and being. They're getting the timing right. That's that's what's not happening right now. We don't have to get into hard knocks bid and we're talking about. We're too hard. Knocks came on it. Just the other night it said it's fresh in everybody's minds and that i have for that first episode was about tonio brown the retell the hard doc sleeper were like they were licking their chops at the possibility of covering antonio brown in training camp and they got just they just got samples of of him the rest of us we all got samples of him and he took that hot air balloon ride he went on the field sold for just some one on ones for he was there until warm-ups on the second day after passing his physical just to get him off of n._f._l. Why who knows and then a couple of days later he was on for a few one on ones and we saw him catch too deep balls on garin one on gearing conley when on trayvon mullen and then we saw <hes> lamarcus joyner actually <hes> defend a pass tickets and that was it that was it and they they they showed every single play that he made on hard knocks the other night every single one of those passes made the show. Because what else are they got. They got nothing else they they. They really wanted to cover him and and at some point in the show after they started talking <unk> kind of vaguely about his foot issues that's it suddenly there's no more antonio brown suddenly they're shifting the focused focused jonathan abraham and and ronald ali and and cleveland farrell and everything and they're just trying to find a way to fill a show because their star the guy that they were gonna basis. All around us is not around it or what what was your. What did you think of that. First episode of hard knocks it was it was it. Did it. Capture your attention. Was it exciting too. I thought it was <hes> it was riveting from from the start <hes> and i could tell as you said that they were trying to feature brown as much as possible possible <hes> but they bled that particular tournament as much as they possibly could squeeze everything out in an and and someone like me who covers the raiders professionally i've seen almost all of what you just saw on that on that episode <hes> but the way they edited it and the way they presented it was fascinating <hes> they couldn't show a lot of antonio tonio brown a lot of what they show was working on his own or or him with his kids which was fine <hes> but you can tell they're trying to build a narrative around him which simply wasn't there and so they did have to go to other places and one of the places that they went was jonathan abram and abram <hes> was just fascinating <hes> for for one reason or another <hes> the first time we see abram he's trying to get candy out of his car which he then drops <hes> and then <hes> we see him. Basically we blowing up luke wilson on a screen pass trying to get to the ball carrier which is a big no no because it was a you know a shorts and shirts day. You're not supposed to do that and <hes> and wilson kinda got his case and then jon gruden really got in this case and then <hes> and then we see abram riding a horse mcclellan which was hilarious because abram knows how to ride a horse. He's as a accomplished horseman. Farrell really really is not <hes> you scared to death of forces frankly <hes> which was hysterical and then we see <hes> jonathan even when the rest of the rookie is out the dinner with derek carr and abram just absolutely acts like an asshole he just comes across really really poorly just as this this hothead runs all the time talks about other people's salary and money and stuff just not a great look <hes> but <hes> if he backs up the his mouth with play <hes> he's going to be one of the more interesting and dynamic players league well there. I think there's no doubt about that because for in order for him to back up his mouth he'd have to be a damn all pro 'cause he's got an you. Gotta have to be <hes>. The next brian dawkins the backup that level of shit talking and yet he's. I knew he had a mouse. I had spoken to him a couple of times but i was still little shocked at the at the <hes> at the quite the level of it in the show there i mean he was joking. Sometimes when he was saying that he didn't eat all day on purpose so that so so that derek carr could so they order everything on the menu and dirk card's kinda roll where they go ahead bro. I mean it's like their car's not not hurting for for any money the at the moment but now it is a little bit like come on man and and there are a lot of people who came out and said that <hes> that none of the neighbor news probably just he was putting it on for the cameras planted up and he swears that's just him. I asked him about it today. It was a interesting of course after the show <hes> he he was made available to media because everybody wanted to talk to him. He's he's now the darling the the star of hard knocks and and he's a lot more are low keys really kind of downplayed a lot of stuff at the you know when he when he spoke to the media and he he leads sounded like the one moment that really stood out to me most in that episode about abram probably in general was win win. Jon gruden was was talking into him and tell him no you can't do that. You got a cool at you know. We're in shorts these your teammates. You know you gotta you gotta knock it off and he was back talking talking gruden. I mean i mean i asked him about like what his philosophy was and he was. He was like <unk> preaches that we be ourselves while there's a fine line there. You know be yourself but understand that you are rookie even though he says it's a bad word he doesn't wanna be called a rookie you. If you want to call all the first year player find your first year player brand new to the league. You've never set foot on an n._f._l. Field and you're talking to a season coach. You're talking to him like that and that's. I don't know i mean i know. Gruden wants him to be himself but i can't imagine that he's willing to put up with too. Who much that <unk>. There's only so far that he can push and to abrahams credit today. It sounded. It sounded like <hes> gruden got through to him. He was saying all the right things about not wanting to hit the rams players because the players just just gonna hit back hit his teammates. He's gonna get people hurt unnecessary injuries and stuff like that and it's like that's the stuff that gruden was talking about ultra find it interesting jared gough was asked if he had advice for the raiders rookies because when the rams were on hard knocks is in two thousand sixteen with thea wouldn't when he was a rookie nathan. Did you have any advice for the raiders. Rookies on for hard knocks how to deal with it and he said some the fact of <hes> don't talk to anybody. Just keep your mouth shut the exact words he said so. I asked abram about that. I said you you know this is what the essentially what <hes> what <hes> goff said his advice for rookie designed said it will you clearly don't subscribe to that so what is your philosophy and that's when he said that the gruden just tells them to be themselves and that's who he is he added that he was a a kid off the field in a man on the field so he's a he's definitely quote machine that's for sure and it will be interesting to see if if he continues to be the hot head or whatever in future episodes i think h._b._o. Will we'll try to feature them as much as possible in gossip advice is great advice for the rookies themselves which it's terrible advice if you're h._b._o. You want these guys to talk much as possible do interesting things as much as possible now abrahams defense in that particular conversation when we only saw a fifteen seconds of what was probably a two to three minute discussion with jon gruden after he blew up luke wilson <hes> and a lot of people took one of the things as you said the wrong way in my opinion told jon gruden the oh you can't cut me but jon gruden had just told him. Oh yes you do that. They're going to cut block you so abram. Lebron wasn't saying you can't get off the team he was saying they're not going to be able to cut blocked me even if they try <hes> some i think some of what he said was taken out of context by a lot of the office on twitter and it's sort of giving him a worse reputation than he possibly deserve some when he had to say yeah. It's it's it's it's possible awesome and i also think that there's definitely room for him to kind of find that medium between being this guy guy on the field has got all this passionate fire and and kind of <hes> pulling it back when he when he talks to when he talks works with coach john with his teammates or whatever the case may be. I think about it. It's interesting. It is kind of occurred to me. Honestly he's wearing number twenty twenty four so i remember another guy who was a lot like him now. Maybe not to this degree but he was a lot like him. When he first came into the league's the first couple of years i was charles woodson. Charles woodson was a hot a hot head. He was a he had every right to be the only solely defensive heisman is when trophy winner ever still is and and he was a great player but he was immature and he talked a lotta a lot of mess as they say in and he he'd be the first to tell you that that <hes> that he had a lot to learn early on and throughout throughout his career when he finally really got pulled his head out and started a mature he was able to emerge his greatness on the field with his with with his persona off of it and you know look at him now he was. I mean i remember when he came back to the raiders. He was <hes>. I mean the when he was on the team before wasn't covering the team. I was a little bit before my time but <hes> <hes> when he came back to the team he was the unquestionable leader could say whatever he wanted about anyone and he was don't get me wrong. He was quite candid and we loved it. We love how candidate charles woodson was <hes> when he was with the team but he's also you also knew exactly what he could say and when he couldn't say and it wasn't just because he was some kind of great because he was <hes> some kind of star players because he was charles woodson and he was a leader on his team so i think that is certainly room for abram to become for him to follow those kind of footsteps if he wants to. It seems to me like he was sort of like what happens. If you have a really energetic dog and and you keep them cooped up in an apartment they just sort of start to go crazy and when things are needed to get out and run he wanted to hit somebody so bad but he just said and he's not supposed to but he did it anyway because he wanted to get out there and be physical and you know i appreciate that but there's a time and place and i think in the sort of maturity we saw with woodson will come in time and i think abram will be that sort of team leader in time the moving past abramov as far as that. Is there anything else about that episode that stood out to you do that. You found especially interesting or or <hes> intriguing. Ah yeah jon gruden himself <hes> just the way that he talks. I mean the the speeches that he gave i would run through a wall right now for that man and the rest of the team would to. He's a players coached. The players are gonna play play for him. <hes> talent level doesn't matter as much as how how well this team responds and it's going to respond to jon gruden. I mean he can take a team as essentially talentless as the last couple of weeks last year's raider team were <hes> and blow out the broncos and that's just his co. Personality and we definitely saw that last night with just the way that he coaches the way that he deals with them and the way that he talks so i was it was fascinating with that. This is what i'm talking about too. Is that what he will ask me about. What what i'm looking forward to hard knocks and that's what i kept saying that i'm looking forward to everyone else seeing the gruden that we see every day in practice but we can't talk about because you're not allowed to to tweet out the things things that the coaches say on the sideline and i'm like i can't wait for everybody to see and hear the kind of things that gruden says to his players there's in the huddle and on the on the sideline because he's one he's highly entertaining to he's funny he's kind of cruel rule but in a way that his that his players like kinda gravitate to know they can kinda know that it's cruel in a way that he cares about them when he does it and <hes> and like so many times he says something that just makes us laugh and i. I still badly want to tell everybody what he said but i'm not allowed so we'll finally these cameras are gonna come in there and everybody's gonna get a chance to see it for themselves. I mean obviously we've seen him on t._v. And everything and we've seen them in these miked up things but it's not enough you know no you he really is and i said this when they put out the teaser and i kind of wish they hadn't put out the teaser for that first part that he was talking to when he's talking to the rookies the very first perspire because when they showed it had already seen the good portion of it but i said at the time that he is a gifted inspirational speaker he's talking about. How a not about dreams. This isn't peach bowl. This isn't blue bonnet bowl. This is <hes> we're looking for a super bowl and we're not in dreams into ending dreams. Go out there and ends. Somebody's dream named. I'm in the fucking nightmare. He said excuse my fingers with that's what he said and i think i just about quoted that directly so but so yeah it was. Was it a pretty damn good speech and it's a great way that it was a great way to lead out. This series yeah the contrast from this year. Our last year's hard knocks where everybody what he got to see. What a complete end. The hugh jackson was as opposed to what an amazing speaker jon gruden is. It's just night and day yeah. It's it's interesting because you mentioned hugh jackson because life literally my first day covering the team as <hes> as a writer was the first day that hugh jackson was made available to speak that he was in a press conference in training camp when he who is still the offensive coordinator for some reason they decided that they weren't gonna make the coordinators available to the media to like late in camp and so the first time he spoke just happened to be my first day and i i was only there for a few days that i camp and a my immediate reaction was this guy is going to be a head coat a head coach in this league within a year or two either for the raiders or another team and not because he was inspirational but just because he carried himself south like a politician he stood up at that that podium like he was running for some kind of office or something you just had the smile he had the you the no the kind of like easy charisma type of thing but it wasn't the <unk> wasn't in the same dimension or the same universe as what you get from grew news just is kind of gritty in real and funny and and and kind of an effortless type of way hugh jackson's just kind of seemed the forest at times yeah jackson's the kinda guy that an owner would love but a knowledgeable fan would hate yeah how long can see right through them but an owner is going to be charmed. I think we saw that play it play out and how many how long how much of a chance he was given with the browns in way more chance than you'd think i'd kill coach that went sixteen and then one in fifteen would get head which has any chance at all after that that's all right so <hes> we've harsh diversed episode of hard knocks knox there are all over the practice field the hard knocks cameras and boom mic whatnot and today they had a lot too late. A lot to film is that rams were in town today. The day that everybody was looking forward to and it was <hes> it was interesting. There's a lot to see a lot of take in with the with the rams in town teams in the super bowl just a few months ago so how how was it out there. What were your impressions. <hes> oakland raiders <unk> <hes> from the ramp well well so my impressions will first of all from the absolute i play of the scrimmages was derek are dropping back and throwing a bomb for terrell williams and having it picked off by key to lead that was that was not a good start. I i remember distinctly. They hadn't been intercepted all camp and the same exact thing happened happened last year when when the lions came in for a couple days before they played in the preseason dare car had not been picked off the entire camp by his own teammates but when the other team comes in. I don't know how many plays in was but it wasn't long darius slay. I picked him off and it's like well that didn't last that didn't last long and keeps leaves us leapt up and plucked ball out of the air her and we're talking about a play. That was there for car almost every time he wanted it. In in prison camp practices the first day at camp happy was going deep for for williams and he was making these these cat over the shoulder leaping grabs for touchdowns against the raiders corners and then they try the first play against the rams and he pays for it and <hes> they didn't try to get into the last play of practice and and then terrell drops to pass so it wasn't a good day for the offense. I <hes> wasn't a great day for the defense <unk> either jared goff pretty much his way with them but is image before we're talking about a super bowl team here. They got a lot of chemistry street there. There are well oiled machine going against a team. That's still in process of rebuilding has a lot of new players trying to put it. All together was without antonio brown without daring waller their top tied in so you got to kind of take factor these things into your overall evaluation. As far as the first i passed that you mentioned was a bad passed one car. Was it just a good play from two perfectly fine passive mars. I tell it was great to lead sniffed it out. He was there he <hes> he just has like new the where the ball was going and and if the rams had been reading anything that was going on the rated at raiders camp that you'd understand that because because that's like i said on the first day of trading in general than they were thrown bombs terrell paul williams the first day there were that was the order of the day was them just testing the field deep and and you know winning those tests with terrell williams and <hes> so i think that they were kind of kind of expecting that made this off season of the raiders trying to upgrade their offensive and defensive lines <hes>. Let's talk a little bit about how we did in the trenches are the raiders did in the trenches against the rams well. I didn't see a whole lot. There were some pressure on the quarterback. <hes> not like i said i think max crosby got in there. I use a quotation fingers with the with the sack because they're not allowed to actually take the quarterback down so you basically have to yet be watching that every replay and you have to notice when a player gets back there because all they're gonna do is run by the quarterback they just kind of like may be tapped them or something on their way by that's as close as they can get to saying saying see. I would have sacked him. Had i been allowed so you get the most you get the most out of watching like specifically pass rush one on one drills and stuff like that because then you can just say this guy win against this guy and who won in these <unk> if you think of the other the other side of the ball on the running backs can't be taken down either so just like did he break that tackle or did the you guys just not attack him or or <hes> so is there is a reason why you don't hear a lot about <hes> offensive linemen in drills then running backs stuff like that because it's just about impossible to really judge them based on what you see in canada i mean durham mcfadden always looked like a goddamn all pro in camp but there's just nothing you could really you could really grasp as far as <hes> evaluating how he's going to perform in the season but like i said they they <hes> they got a couple couple of pressures here and there are nothing to write home about. The rams are doing a pretty good job of <hes> getting the ball out. They were running some verses stuff like that and that's. I think that's where that's where they had. The raiders has pretty good place by tahir. Whitehead had a a couple of stops <hes> on an end around he had sniffed it out in the also stopped running backing tried to run out wide and eric harris had a coupla had a couple nice plays warm worry blitzed up the gutten but but he's going against blake bortles and do you want to feel good about yourself. The rate is going to feel good about themselves. Lease the lease. They beat blake bortles blake bortles look look just dreadful and the raiders took advantage they they did pretty well against him. Just didn't quite <hes> hold up their end against gough. Well blake bortles during your made the super bowl two years ago and frankly should've <hes> so they go looking at the price. I absolutely early if you can get to him. Dammit you can get to anybody. I saw him play at u._c._f. <hes> he was running all over the field. No one can talk them so the raiders general darn it there on the right track. It's not for nothing. I would say about half the starters in this league are not worthy of not not that great so and blake bortles could potentially be one of those those lower tier starters and if you can make him look bad then you've done something. It's not nothing if he was lighting you up. That would be something if he was. I if even blake bortles making your defense look bad then we'd have something really talk about. At least they were holding heroin against him. You know the majority of the of the good defensive news i saw on twitter today came when blake bortles was and the scrimmage and the majority of the bad news came when jerry was playing and then of course the difference between those two players. There's just orders of magnitude so i'm not surprised they had the i'm pleased. They had a little bit of success. They have a really good receiving core. <hes> with the you know brandin cooks cooper cup and robert woods leading things off. I mean they those guys are pretty. Damn good pretty good trio. Maybe perhaps one of the best in the league certainly one of the best and you know jared goff deal in a he we had this pass in the back of the end zone when it was it was interesting because blake bortles was in and he throws four jerrald everett written the back left corner of the end zone with an eric harris's covering him and bortles throws. This pass and air cares is able to to get over in defendant knockout. I need and you think to yourself. I was a good play harris but had he put a little bit more on that pass or been able to really put something on that pass. Maybe he fits it in there but he did and then the very next play he leaves golf comes in goth takes a snap he pump fakes wchs and then everett goes across the back of the end zone and he threads this frigging needle between two defenders carl joseph and i can't take of who the other person was right into everett's everett's arms in the back of the end zone for the touchdown n._s. Looks like that was the difference right there displayed in one play okay then the next one this is blake. Bortles doesn't put enough on the ball safeties able to get to get to knock it down in the back of the end zone to jared goff throwing throwing a freaking laser between defenders to the same guy in the middle of the b- in the back of the endzone saying you know both in the back of the end zone for the touchdown down there you go. That's the difference. That's what makes all the difference right. There was really something i did. I did read a lot of positive notes about the raiders offensive offensive line. <hes> i saw videos of <hes> of gabe jackson on aaron donald seemed like he was handling <hes> the number one guy on the the top one hundred up pretty well and i read a lot of good things about colton miller trent brown <hes> especially on on one on one <hes> pass protection israel seem like they they pretty much had their way with the rams pass rusher so i'm i'm cautiously optimistic about especially about miller <hes> i think he's honestly the key due to the raiders line with your does well. I think the line will be well as whole. He's the. He's the big question mark. The other guys are are all established. I proven guys he's the one guy is coming up to sixteen sack season <hes> given that up and and and you know people say is probably because they injury but we're about to find out. He's the one big question mark he holds up in. That's a a decent line and if he doesn't then probably is it because you know he's he's the blindside side protector but full disclosure. I was on the i was on the side of the they working on. Two different fields like on one field. It was the rams offense against the raiders defense offense on the other side of the field. It was the raiders offense against the rams defense and so you basically had to pick either you either you jump back and forth and you got some on on some of the other or you just chose which side you're going to be on <hes> i rose the defensive side for most of the day i caught like <hes> i like caught some of the offense and i kinda got filled in by some of the other guys on some of the stuff in between a part of that is because i'm still walking around with a brace on my leg egg because <unk> kuzma broken kneecap so i can't really move around very fast so i got to kind of pick my spots in kind of choose when i move around but <hes> so i didn't see. I didn't really see what the offensive line. The raiders are doing against the the the the rams defensive line. I was more interested in seeing with raiders defense was doing today. I might get to get a chance to a better look at the rat at the the raiders offense against the rams defense tomorrow but that's that's encouraging that you know you saw <hes> the you know the reports coming out of there that the offensive line was playing well against the rams defense now aaron donald being for can world-beater all by himself yeah. It seemed like they bottled him up. At least in the video is that i watched <hes> so i did see a a few sort of conflicting assessments of the team. <hes> one of the beat writers from the bay area said that he would put a large sum of money on the raiders having the thirty for thirty second rake defense yet again this season <hes> just from just from what he saw <hes> which i don't know it's the freaking rams. If we scrimmaged against the jets i don't the key would have a similar assessment <hes> but louis riddick who's the guy and he's a guy who was <hes> opinion irish quite a bit said this he said looking at the raiders heaters up close and personal today. Let me assure you of this. This team is light years more talented than their team from twenty eighteen they f- athletes all over the field and a nice blend of young sprinkled with experience orient. They are no doubt my surprise team in nineteen about with nice i saw i saw i saw that and i think i saw the one the other one you're talking about. I certainly saw one person saying the one guy saying that the defense is going to be the worst in the lake but this is where i would. I would say about that. I would say that neither either are the case. I would say that both of them hyperbole. One of them is basically. I mean no disrespect to louis riddick but you know he talks the p._r. People in the coaches and they tell him they feed him things and he <hes> he wants to say nice things and they bring him back and they give him access and all that other stuff and and he's any played for the raiders so he's got a little bit of raider love. I think he's laying it on a little thick. Maybe me a lot thick there some truth in there when you consider just how bad the raiders defense was last year to say that they're going to be greatly lately. Improved is a huge stretch to say they'll be very improved hobby not that much of a stretch either. They do have some great pieces. They've added <hes> and there's going to be rookie starting so when he's talking about some young stars sprinkle in they don't have much choice in that men bond has perfect has been been great rate for this defense with his leadership and his knowledge of the defensive scheme so yeah. I think they're going to improve. I think there's nothing you might be going a little bit far just like i think the other guy saying that they're going to be the worst defense in the league is is considerably off base because like you said they're facing the jets or whatever our team you wanna say that's bad or even mediocre in in in these practices. You have a different result. You're facing a super bowl team and it's not just the <unk> is a well-balanced super bowl team that has like like stars like big stars on both sides of the ball that can make you look terrible double and neither these the raiders aren't able to gain plan for these is not like the head this week to go through like film and they did but they're not gonna do that. It's just a practice you know. Practicing is another team. They're not. They're not doing a game week game plan situation so you're not you're not gonna see the best stuff out here because they don't really care about winning and losing per se. They're just trying to get better in the trying to practice just like the rams cbs are so i think it's all just it's all just hyperbole. I hate that people buy into it so much. I see a lot of people <hes> freaking anada commenting about the guy said is going to be the worst and see everybody re tweeting redican. We says that it's just like i just can't just can't go along with any of it. It's just too much well. I mean even if the defense isn't super improve from last year they get a bit of dead cat bounce because it would be almost statistically impossible cool for them to be worse than last year <hes> saying i think the amounts dead cat bounce when you throw a dead cat on the ground and even if it's dead. It's still gonna bounce a little bit while that is country my friend. That's great absolutely so i think there i think the defense utensil be finding in the end <hes> against teams like the broncos against teams like a lion's whereby they'll be. They're not gonna play the rams so <hes> i. I don't see this as a serious issue. They're not keeping score at the scrimmage. They're just they're throwing stuff at the wall and seeing what sticks i'm i'm not taking it too seriously warmer the other well i think on that note <hes> will <hes> will wrap this one up and and prep for their for the next day of scrimmages scrimmages and the rest of camp as for the rest of you. Thanks again for joining us on the silver and black pride cast <music> mm-hmm.
