Colts Talk With Jim Ayello (@JimAyello). Carson Wentz Trade Reaction. Michigan Beats Ohio State!

"Welcome into one and done radio wherever you are. However you're joined the episode however you're listening to episode however visit may possible in your life. Thanks you make a one and done radio a part of your day. What was on. Itunes soundcloud spotify pot. Iheartradio radio dot com. Whatever it is. Thank you on this episode. I opened the show with an interview with jim. Yellow indy star talking colts talking carson. Wentz talking who stays. And who's let go from the colts at this point and then i talk about carson wentz myself i give my reaction to the trade happen this past week or last week between the colts and the eagles finally close the show. The michigan finally beating ohio state in basketball. All that on the show. Let's go all right. join me now. Is the man the myth the legend jimmy yellow of indies star. Follow him on twitter at jim a yellow jim again as always taking time. You're talking on one and done. Radio always production. I'm gonna keep that up often So let's go into it. So colts obviously made huge headlines last week. Acquiring carson wentz. What was your initial reaction to the trade. So i guess my initial reaction. That i i tend to look at these. Things was just the compensation at what would they put up to get him at. What level risk there at an i kinda like the tree i got a big carson guy but i had two thoughts on that that the earliest i one is that i this point frank reich's career. I don't think you can question him when he says. Hey this is a quarterback i can. I can turn around and make a pretty quarterback. He's got the best out of once before he's got the best nick foles. He got the best really great season of andrew luck a pretty good season jacoby process before he got hurt and a really good season philip rivers after. Everybody thought he was so. I mean at this point if they break says yeah. I carson wentz. This built a quarterback like get out of them. You kind of have to believe them then. The other part of it was what they gave up. They kind of control how much they surveyed. You're at this point. I mean they have the first pick next year is depending on what about you. Play seventy house apps and they make the playoffs. Seventy percent of the steps in total and and things go south. They can make sure that. I'll end up giving up a first-round pick this deal third in the second round pick. That's not that much to kind of. Roll the dice on a twenty eight year old quarterback who has shown what let's show. Yeah and honestly if frank reich can get that two thousand seventeen carson wentz plaque. Where do you put the colts at He gets he gets that carson wentz back that i do think that there probably closest rule contention. I still need to see what they're gonna do at some other spots tackle wide receiver coroner a few the edge rusher to shore up Before i say hey they can go on to kansas city and they can take john know a hello josh allen i but again the customers is back to that level yet. They're right there in the banks and again. You have to kind of give. Chris ballard credit. He's made a really great last year for years despite having consistency a quarterback so he does what he's done in the past and he gives frank reich absolute good offense defense to work with if if if i went to that guy right there to kansas city. Now let's talk about chris dollar where sometimes when he make news. It's like watching the movie. Draft day with kevin costner. he's making. He's phenomenal news. And i felt like we look at this chart. I felt he really did. Control the trade. I i saw like but then i saw that. Not only are we taking on carson. Wentz gave up the pics but we also make the eagles about thirty million dollars cap space. What is it about chris valletta. He made his deal work so what he does. Is he sets negotiates. And i tell you this i. I haven't tied to destroy a the author of the cultivate. Didn't budge for the most part. I mean. I think. I couldn't tell you that it was the exact same offer. Two weeks ago that was the day got accepted. But i can say that. It didn't go very much. And so what. Chris bell does as well as i would say any other generally is he set the price and he says this is the price that you're gonna have. This is what i'll take and if if you accept it great if you don't move like i actually was talking to agents of different player teams just kind of talking to him a little bit about stuffing talked about chris. Ballard and you get a free agent a few years ago. The colts pursuing david. Coming down to about a million dollars different none. A billion in one year a million over over four years point. Two five billion and chris ballard's crisis my price and the guy went somewhere else. And so that's how a that's that's that to christina's better or worse. Maybe you know. Maybe he lost the guy that he should have gone. And that's the way crystal go sheet. How he rose into the eagles calls and says what. Are you willing to give up and chris. Ballard tells him every delete including alley rose meadows. That's the off. It's like. I change certain. Now we had our tackle anthony costanzo retire. What do you think the colts what. What decision chris valor make sure. He goes trying to get a veteran she and wraps anyway. Thank you see chris ballard. Possibly doing tonight. They haven't explored To kinda higher price guys out there right now. Be traded via free agency again not to say they. Won't i think they're pretty focus on the quarterback situation and making sure they got that right before the boobs other stuff and right now. They're kind of draft evaluation. And i think that's where they're gonna end up landing on the left tackle situation if you look. I just think that's host financially responsible way to attack the left tackle position of. You're paying rolling kelly a lot of money to be one of the best centers football. But you're paying him a lot of buddy. Nelson's contract is going to be record-setting bring smith is going to make a lot of money On his contract and those guys are both entered your so they can liberal eligible for extensions right now so at this point if you go out and pay huge number two a left tackle your really committing a ton of money to afford off the vine and again the like building in the trenches their money. But i don't think you can spend that much money There so i think the better path is to draft a rookie in the first or second round. And you get a you know a quality player contract for four eighty five years attracting okay in the last segment before i let you go so we have a bunch of players that are gonna be free agents or we're going to bring him back. I wanted to kind of go through a few names. I wanted to ask you if you want to keep them. Should sign or release him at this point. Is it if i think the colts will or what i think they would you think all right. So let's go marlon mack man. That's that one. I am a big marlins fan. Just like the guy loaded or do it But i think. I think he should go. I think he I think he's a great running back. And i think that he could go somewhere else On a short deal and Improve how good he isn't that the country needs to look at the price is right. You bring it back. They like they haven't parris campbell. And michael pittman and i know that tucker's bends follow with the injuries that those guys have had Qn old is still really really receivers. The same guy that he was pretty close in kind of a colts icon at this point I think you bring it back. Making the prices is right. Traber go they can do. I would like. I've been wanting frank to get a Athletic tight end for a long time. You can mold into into a star. And i think i thought i'd kinda thought maybe we'll do it last year. They didn't get triggered. But i think if they draft somebody or trade for somebody like that out either busters justin houston such a big team leader for them and a very active players. Still even at thirty one or thirty thirty years old. Become at thirty two as a really good edge. Classes free agency Some good rushers in the drafts. I say got up and go anthony walker. Gotta let them go. The really deep linebacker anthony walker. I think he does and other great guy locker room one areas leonard spreads and somebody who plays well with but that guy wants more snaps bobbio greedy darius leonard there i was to more melodic. Hooker them go. I mean the the culture is a position with the change of scenery. Things really go. Well di napoli's have of the car willis happy with the state deduct Emily cooker is still accounted guy that that is probably you know even get a chance. I don't know who could starting job somewhere. But it could and dr last one xavier rose. I suggest it accord. Because chris has done a really good job of targeting guys like roads like peer to see her who have been kind of cast off mother teams and got really good years out of the curve for very cheap deals and i'm tempted to say he could do it again. But given the uncertainty of where rocky since developed is not to say he's still can't a corner but given that uncertainty. I'd rather have somebody on the other side. Who i pretty much knew i could count on so i say. Bring it back right. He's again jim. I l indy star. Follow him on twitter at jimmy. Jim again thank you for taking the time to talk me a one and done radio so i wanted to comment on the carson wentz trade myself and i wanna talk about. You can give my reaction a colts fan. I have to step in and give my reaction for the trade. Now you know when you put money into stock. Sometimes you got to do research stock right. You got to see if it's low risk high reward. Whatever it might be you guys see if how much turn. You're going to get on that stock i do dabble in stocks myself. And i'm sure a lot of people out there do so many outlets to do it with but you gotta make sure that you do research and you gotta make sure that it's the right move for you to see if it does benefit you financially or is it going to be a loss or are you okay with the minimal loss and the carson wentz trae or the of the colts and chris. Ballard i look at it as cultural clear winners of the trae were regardless of what eagles fans want say and of what they got. Oh we got rid of carson wentz dude. He was he. He really lashed was his worst year. Obviously of his career. No doubt when i look at the trade so the nerve kitchen came over my phone. I was like What only and my co workers are asking me about. And i was just like. I don't really the only thing that was really i was really against was the contract. And then i saw what are. Gm chris ballard did he. May the eagles take thirty million of the cap hit next year. Thirty million and i was like wow was clapping. Let's go now. I feel good about this trade and be once they will carson. Wentz is bad. He's terrible he's done. He's not terrible. He had a bad season. Do we know if he's done. We don't until this coming year when you look at all the teams out that we're looking to carson wentz. This team makes the most sense. Okay frank ryan to seventeen was carson wentz's offensive coordinator and carson wentz was having. Mvp type season until his injury. Then he helped. Nick foles be nick foles and lead into suitable for a win over the patriots carson. Wentz is not done yet. That's that's what i'm trying to sit. I talked about the eagles trying to first round. Pick for him. he's not worth the first round. Pick right now. And what's nice about. Chris ballard as far as gm for the colts. He didn't force too much. He people probably would going to offer more or offers something a little bit more than cars wins for carson wentz. But chris ballard was just like this is what i'm going to give you take it or leave it third a second round. Pick that hey. If he plays good he plays well. We go to the playoffs. He'll turn to a first but if it doesn't yeah it's the second he didn. I give up the farm. Two picks two picks. That's it not first rounders at the rams did for stafford not a million first runner that the texans are trying to give shawn watson just two picks third this year in the second next positive first and making the eagles eat the cap. Thirty million is a huge hit for the eagles this year. You can't deny that. The eagles really screwed on that deal. The eagles fans. I'm i'm telling you right now. I'd be upset if i were you because now we're looking at jalen hurts and what's even more upset -i is reports are. The eagles are name. Served jalen hurts the starting quarterback. Okay so what what. What are we doing now. What we're talking about now. Now we have jalen hurts as a quarterback you spent a second round pick on him because you moved on from carson wentz. Because you've got jalen hurts or it was just carson wentz the relationship between carson wentz the team which is unrepayable i do think carson wentz has the potential to be great this. You've seen from frank right again. He's had jacoby perset. Andrew luck philip rivers. He has turned. These guys is a. He's made every time he's been the head coach. Play colorful these guys. These guys are good seasons for the colts perset before his injury in pretty good. We can't even deny that andrew luck being was solid. Obviously it was good and he was andrew luck and he did very good for the colts when he was there. Especially with frank right. And then philip rivers guy came over from the chargers where frank i was offense coordinator. There goes to the colts. Frank offense a corner there fill again has a solid season coming back from the year prior where he had a terrible season for the charges comes to turnovers so let's not write off carson wentz just yet because of who is going to. You're going to a team that is built to win and this on my opinion this does put the colts as a super bowl favorite. Not as the favorite. Let's not get these words twisted. I'm not calling the colts. These favorite to win you always pick teams are like oh the these definitely are contenders for civil right. We have teams that are rebuilding teams and our teams are playoff-bound guy teams are like for sure can make a run at the super bowl. This depends on what carson wentz shows up if you get the two thousand seventeen carson wentz. Now you're looking at a very very talented team like this team. Stacked on defense gray offense needed final left tackle now good running backs saal receivers good tight ends this team's loaded they were just needing this piece and in carson wentz. This is another thing with carson. Wentz doesn't need to do too much right. He just needs to come in play as himself. Sometimes you find quarterbacks that they're trying to do too much trying to make a big play happen when nothing there sometimes it just doesn't work out like that and it cost him in the end and then mistakes happen so with carson wentz come in and just do your job of the patriot way but just do your job. Don't force too much frank right. We'll do a good job carson wentz best believe it he's not gonna force carson wentz to do too much he's going to keep them with himself and i know frank right is happy because i of if he did not believe that he could fix carson wentz or eating a he would not be making this. Move chris ballard and frank right you know the on the same page but if he did not believe this was the right move he was. I just i can't do it. We'll find somebody else. Chris bowers like you can see the relationship between ballard and right is very good. They're on the same page. When you have those your gm you head coach luke that they're working together your teams get better. It's flat out. Simple your teams get better. Carson wentz was an upgrade for the colts. The colts game a very little and people want us to say oh carson wentz his back he's going to be bad he'll get pulled you know and if he does get pulled afford of season's over fine we didn't lose much right like what else is out there. We could have given up offer stafford but we didn't. We would probably reach out for sam darnold. We don't know a sam darnold's gonna bring. We don't know what is going to bring either but the colts and the move of carson wentz. I'm sure one end up indy. And then the eagles knew that they pyatt talked to winston saying. Hey it's your an where would you like to go. And i'm sure teams offer their input like would you come here was saying no. I wouldn't but the colts were the team to go to top team. Going for the playoff spot for sure if you get a carson wentz. Mvp type form. He easily be taken to the super bowl. And by the way anyone that's trying to get a carson wentz jersey. He's not gonna number eleven. Michael pittman said that he can keep number eleven. So carson wentz have a new number. That's good really quick. It's i know it's a number. A number means a lot to some people but sometimes you get a fresh start. Fresh start new new number new me. I don't know but kudos look happy for carson wentz. This worked out for the colts and went. I feel the eagles just connolly. Whatever we gotta deal with it but you guys realize. The eagles gave up a lot going get now. You took out that you gave get a lot to get rid of him. The egos are really just in a weird situation right now. And i'm curious to see what they do with number six overall pick. It happens it happens. We did it. Ohio say fans. You guys can suck it. Sorry i'm just. I'm kidding around but really we did it. Michigan beat ohio state in basketball for those that don't know or did not see score. Michigan went to ohio state. One ninety two to eighty seven college basketball. It was a great match number three versus number four in the country. You know i love. And i'm going to just talk about this. Ohio state fans are gonna. There's some ohio state fans that want the football team. I have a house in fans a. How are you enjoying your big ten championship right. Like who cares you dos to alabama and the national title game. You're championship in the big ten. Means nothing like nobody cares because ohio. Here's the thing. I wanted to house football. Really quick people want to say. Oh he's wearing michigan stuff so we hate ohio state. Yeah of course. I hate ohio state. Just like ohio states michigan. What else is new. But the end of the day. I none idiot. I know how stay when it comes to their talent. Their level of play is way up there for football compared to michigan right now. It's obvious so. That's why. I'm just that's why you know it's a big ten title. I bat for the football team for house. It doesn't mean that much to that team in means more to other teams know. So that's that's why. I was just trying to refer to when it comes ohio state now for the basketball team this. You know how stay. Hey we we had a great. I'd juwan howard. I'm loving the direction of his basketball. Team is heading for michigan wolverines. Juwan howard has just done so much so quick now. Granted people want to forget about coach. Beeline who was there before. Be like coach beeline really. He's the one that brought this program back sense it was good since the fab. Five like the fab five this team program. As far as basketball wasn't much then coach. Beeline came in and just turned it around. So john howard. I'm not going to say that. He deserves all the credit in the world because he really took over a very good program but he's billing this team to the next level you know. John howard is a very good coach. I don't see him taking on offers to go in the nba. Just yet i think he you know. We use the emotions and how emotional. He was to get the coaching job at michigan the recruits he's bringing in a he has the number one recruiting class coming in next year number. One how often do you hear about michigan. Having the number one recruiting class in basketball and football anymore but in basketball it's usually kentucky duke north carolina right yukon. Possibly you got all these big time college basketball programs and then there's michigan we are not a top tier football program right now. We're not on the level. Ohio state and fans have to accept it. We're just not do. I hate losing to iowa state. Every single frigging time and happens by michigan is on the basketball team. They went to ohio state. Buckeyes they went to the horseshoe around the horseshoe because the basketball. But you know what i'm saying. They went to the team down south and beat you. I hope that felt good. You know. I just have to say this. I i try to be unbiased. I always do. But i have to sit there and just enjoy this win. Michigan beat ohio state does not as said much anymore because they don't have it in football anymore. Like i'm dave sorry. It just doesn't even though until sixteen. Jt barrel short. I'll say all time continued to say it. I don't care. But i'm not an idiot when i know how it football is better than us right now. Dr. basketball watchi- is now. We'll say this. I'm happy that the programs are good this year. Because i think well before the season even started we were none of these teams or even ranked right. I could be wrong. I know michigan was not right. I don't think he'll house. It was either and now we met with me to the top five in the country. That's pretty sick. I don't spike and pressured the highest state in both teams finished by pl- picked to finish like what six and seven in the big ten. Something like that or five and six. What these teams are good. These are very good. So i'm not taking away anything from ohio state but we beat you also who cares i just had to say that illinois when a game got postponed us against illinois because of covid why do why do illinois fans and why do people try and sit there and say we're afraid to play. Argh sorry if you guys wanna get cova to then cool play us and we got no problem playing you guys right but no illinois complained that we were trying to get out of planning illinois. We're not we didn't have a quality win on a resume. Like playing quality wins okay. We have been wisconsin. We have beaten minnesota beat northwestern. We be ohio state. We be like wisconsin twice. What more do you want from this team. The michigan wolverines are very good and the better than illinois. Yeah i know won't won't find out till beginning of march march seconds. Our next game against the might get that. We're better than them. I see that. I think john tower has is team play in the right direction but the game overall between like there wasn't a team that really pulled away the very end or anything. It just felt that this was very good very close. And i know that ohio state is a very good team. I get it i. I am commending for a great game as a michigan fan. I'm gonna take this winning. I'm going to enjoy the heck out of it as long as i can. Because we don't get that much when it comes to michigan beating ohio state laws sports. That will do this episode of one and done radio.

Tim Tebow Signs With Jacksonville. Colts Sign Eric Fisher. Mother's Day Story.

"Welcome into one and done radio however you are listening to the show how this all happened in your life as on spotify iheartradio pandora pot accord pod being however you are listening. Thanks to make a one and done ray part of your day. Lots of goes on this episode opened the show talking about ten tibo signing with the jacksonville jaguars on one year. Deal to play tight. End ed people need like stop freaking out. Stop making us about like privilege and stuff. I don't know like it's just the guys playing football. I don't know what to tell you out of. And then talk about the cold signing eric fisher scientific one year deal for nine million bucks. I think he's just low risk high reward move for the guy who this coming from often kelly's injury but could come back and be a huge factor. V ofensive line finally closed. Show mother's day mothers day just passed. I wanted to tell a story about my mom when i was a high school. And how she saved. My i from having a piece of turf stuck in it. You gotta listen to find out. It's kind of gross so viewer. Discretion advised on that part But whatever all that on the show. Let's go so. Tim tebow officially signed with the jacksonville. Jaguars for a one year deal to make. The transition from quarterback would which which what he was in two thousand twelve over two tight end. People want me. They comparisons of con- capture nick. Right colin cabinet hasn't been given shot years ago. I get it the whole kneeling thing. We get all that when you have a job interview and you don't show up to the interview and you tell the people at the interview. Hey let's go. I'm not going to show up to your view. I'm going to do my own interview somewhere else. Do you think people wanted to sign you and then you go just attack. We're right here. we're not hiding. We're not doing anything. this is what it is. That's what we want to say about colin kaepernick. Right thank colin capper. Nick hasn't been given a fair shot. You about the nfl fine. Be my guest. But let's just remember the situation. That's at hand right now. Colin kaepernick has been trying to play quarterback in the nfl. Colin kaepernick has been trying to not only just play quarterback but only play for big money. He has had opportunities to sign with teams for but the teams are offering him less pay. And he's saying no the teams are saying. We're not going to guarantee you a starting spot and he's saying no when you have a chance to try and make it back to a job that you really want to. Sometimes you have to take a pay cut. Sometimes you have to take a sacrifice what you truly want to get to where you want to be if you truly want a lot of money and starting gig. Sometimes you've got to be a backup to get there and let's remember to. Nobody's bringing tim tibo into be a quarterback. I love him. Tebow met the dude. I'm just sitting here saying stop. Compare capper nick to tibo stop it. One guy was brought in to had a chance to be correct and unfortunately yes. The whole neilan situation happened fully understand that that pushed him out of the league. Probably can my league for a little bit. But he had a chance and as an colin kaepernick to get back into the league go-to interview and say you know what. Screw your location. I'm gonna go to a different location. Throw to some other guys and we'll be sitting here talking to me Tell an nfl were not hiding. We're here all this stuff blah blah blah. So ten tibo wants to try and go and play football again. The guys wants to play sports. Let's just be clear when he had no other opportunity to make it in the nfl as a quarterback. What did he do. He went and played baseball. People want to say it's privilege it's not. I don't look at it as i look. It's his name. It's the t mobile brand does table. Bring it on hisself to have this big name and have all these fans follow him and all this no. He plays sport. He just wants to play sports. He's a kid that is doing whatever he can to stay in sports. I know he's thirty. Four and making the kid analogy but still. He wants to play sports. That's only wants to do how many teams would have signed tim. Tebow to this one year deal to play tight end. One team out of thirty two would have done it in the one team did. Why is that marketing is such a big thing nowadays. Were you want to make sure you market to the right crowd to the right people clientele managers. Whatever you wanted to call it right marketing. it's about who you know sometimes and not what you know. right tim. tebow knows urban meyer. Urban meyer knows tim tibo. They both know each other very well. Not sit there and think that any other teams would have done this. No no other teams would have done this move. That is clear nabis and if you think that the baltimore ravens would have done this. You're wrong one team and won coach. Did this didn't bring him into a quarterback like he's got trevor lawrence gardner minshew. He's got his quarterbacks he could have easily said you come in and try out to be a third one right no. He didn't though he stuck with. Hey like we all can see. This is probably a culture move. This is probably somewhere he said. I need some leadership. Some something in the locker room at this team needs tibo. Can you come in and be that guy. I'll give you a chance to try and earn as tight end. Tiba worked out gye wars liquid from workouts for him to go in and try out as tight end well granted. He hasn't made the team he hasn't made the roster he has even taken a and a jaguars uniform yet. He hasn't done any of this. And we are all sitting here ray to attack him for what for a guy that wants to go and play football and i get people want say there's guys out there that deserve a chance more than him. Probably but when urban meyer people on attack attack urban meyer. He's tibo says. Hey coach let me play a tight end. If i can play the sport. Football urban says sure coming out. What does it matter now. Even if even tibo starting week one tight end he better had a crazy. Preseason to earn a starting gig. But i think we all kins- agree that's not happening for him to go from not playing at all to a starting tight in the. Nfl is unlikely. But let's not go in just attack tibo and comparative capper. Nick capper. Nick had a chance to go to an interview by the nfl. You may not like the company you're trying to interview with for right but if you want need a job go to the interview if you need the job it's like hey you know what i'm not like working for. Espn whatever but day. I want to be a sports. And i need an opportunity to go writes about sports and get paid for it. That's what kabri wants to do right. But no he went over there he said. Screw your workout. i'm going somewhere else. Stop comparing t-bone capri. It's a stupidest comparison ever heard of one guy is just wind play football. He just wants to play sports. The other guy doesn't is it so hard to see. I don't think t- looking to make the team. I'm rooting for tibo. I really am. I don't think he's going to make the team. I've met the guy. he's a great model visual speaker. He's really good at what he does. When it comes to be an athlete like tito can play sports. He's an athlete but to think that he can go and be a tight end. I don't think so but don't knock the guy for trying something because only one coach of the entire league is giving him this opportunity to try and do it in the first place. So the colts signed eric fisher to a pretty nice contract when you think about it because we were in desperate need of a left tackle. That was pretty obvious for those that saw the anthony towns did retire from the nfl this past season so the colts made the transition. They made the move to going. Gets eric fisher. The tight end tight and the left tackle who used to play for the cheese and now is getting up for the colts. Unfortunately eric fisher does have any kelly's injury. He is recovering from so he will probably not be ready by week one. I don't know if there's anything that i know about chris ballard as a gm and the colts as as a medical team. They all know one. He had to get a physical done right in the physical showing positive. Good like good signs in his in his rehab. so the colts saw positively. Now eric fisher. Was the number one overall. Pick years back. Has he lived. Up to that hype. I don't know but the number one overall pick up for left tackle hype but he has lived up to be know a top tier tackle in this game. Like not top top. Five top ten as far as left tackle. There's only thirty two them in the nfl. He has lived up to at least being a top ten tackle. This is again. Low risk higher award. The colts assigned to a one year. Deal about nine million dollars. They do have other pieces. Quinn nelson brain smith ryan kelly on that offensive line. We are thinking about this colts offensive line. You think about this. How an offensive line general. I talked about a lot of times. Having familiarity with the guy next to you is so key like you like the years a couple years back right. Yeah a couple of years back. The colts hedegaard streak of that. Same five guys. Always starting that helps when it comes to. I trust this guy next me. I've been playing with his guy for weeks and months. I trust in the. He's gonna make the block nia for us to be successful. Now air fisher. Obviously it's going to be a little bit disadvant- he's not gonna be able to really practice with the starting lineup. Who knows when he's got rehab. And i think if the colts you wanna make sure that this guy is going to be ready to go and i think when you look at this off of line you guys those three guys and just named right brain smith ryan kelly and quit nelson sometime and then mark lewinsky is well. Who's actually a solid right. Garvan to sometimes when you have those four guy four the five linemen you put that one guy in. Sometimes i one guy can actually be covered for the other four guys. Now here's the situation why this may actually hurt them. The left tackle probably the most important position on the offensive line. If not the center is the blind guy that covers the blind side. So whoever the colts do put in the left tackle. That's going to be a tricky situation because you don't know who's going to cover the blind side of carson wentz. And but when this. When eric fisher is ready to go you had to look at this often align as again still won the top offensive lines in the nfl. Eric fisher is i think good and save signing. If you're the colts one year nine million dollar deal if he doesn't play cool whatever but if he does play great now we have a good left tackle. And i can sit there and say that when the colts were not drafting. A left tackle pretty concerned. I thought okay first round if you don't get him okay. We'll give them in the second round and second round. We've got daio out of vanderbilt which i'm not questioning him as a player. Like any of the draft picks. I'm not questioning them as a player. I'm questioning the need. And so when the colts and not get a left tackle and thinking okay. Something has to be happening. That i don't know about chris ballard's good gm one of the best gm's and the game in. I don't care if you think i'm wrong. 'cause i'm not but one of the best. Gm's in the game. Is chris ballard for the colts in his short time. He's been with the colts. He has turned this organization around first year. He had often of line ray for andrew luck what they do. They lend to the playoffs playoff. Win first year with chris ballard with his full regime as as His full like his hand and the team right so that happen next the next year. Andrew lucked retires so now he's trying to manage with if we can be honest to kobe. Is a backup quarterback. They disowned the game. Show that he was five in two and then got hurt and he was pretty much dead after that. So he's a backup quarterback and then he brings it. Philip rivers again leads into the playoffs. So i had to trust in chris. Power that he knows what he's doing becomes a billion his team and i love his very first draft all offensive line. Sorry all offense of defensive line like he knew beguile start with the trenches next draft linebackers some defensive skill guys and some other positions as well and it's passed a draft that quarterback quarterback and particular and running back. Jonathan taylor michael pittman he gets. He has some good players. Joined black men like he has some good players as well and finally this past draft quitting on the defensive front and then die on the second round. Had to trust in mark in. Chris ballard that he's making the right decisions. I think this eric fisher moved shows. Hey the draft may be over. But chris bowers still has something planned and he did. He got a solid tackle win. Healthy can easily go into the colts lineup. And do his job. He'll he will know the offense. He'll be studying film reading the playbook all this stuff he will be ready to go for. The offense may take them a couple of weeks once he gets going to actually build that chemistry with off line. But with a town of eric fisher. When he's healthy. I i've you don't ever rushing back. So let him get fully healthy until he's ready to go once fully healthy put him in. Give them a chance to build that chemistry and once chemistry built. I do see this as this is going to be a potentially big move for the colts in a long-term towards the end of the season so in honor of mother's day passing Obviously had him on tuesday heavy late. Mother's day to all the mothers out there. You know my mom my girlfriend's mom all moms that are out there. Happy mother's day to everybody. Because i know some of us don't have their moms. I understand that and moms are so important in our allies. And i want to tell this story about my mom when i was in highschool playing my last football game. So we're playing. Our our college rival our high school rival and it was back and forth game. We weren't actually. I said to win didn't win. We lost we still college or high school rival. And i remember. I had a play where i caught the ball. I was running with the ball. And then also you know This is like two thousand nine. Two thousand and ten were high school fields. At least in where i was from. Were starting to get like the turf artificial turf with the little pellets in the ground and all that. Nfl obviously has been putting those in for fields. I get that except for lambeau. It's always grass so the this put in these this is the first year with his turban that we were the first ones that had this turf and it was fun. It was nice but when it was hot like practice day when you're pricing is like ninety nine degrees outside. And he sees that he on this field rising. Like jesus sucks. It was terrible but it was the last game of my senior season and we knew was last game like we are not making the playoffs or anything. That has already been decided. We talked so anyways. I caught a pass like a six yard hitch route or i caught. It turned on field. Then a guy tackle me on my back. And then also my face hits the ground and slams on this turf and i fell something going to my eye and i figured it was like a piece of turf but i didn't like know what to do. And it was like a full at the beginning of the fourth quarter. I think it could be wrong for the beginning of the fourth quarter. Had this piece of turf from my. I were still on his drive. And i'm the kinda rubbing my island my gloves and i'm just like jesus mighty but i gotta keep playing you know receiver gabby out there so we go in. I think we did a score on that drive. I forgot who scored scored was a me like this thing in my i was still playing anyways. I'm just talking right now but it was interesting because it seems like sticking around felt like jesus things like really in my eyeball right now so then after the game where you know your your senior night so you're taking pictures with like the senior football players. Like oh my god the last game ever gosh and i walk onto my family just away from me and take a picture of me as well and i'm like mom there's something in my eye and she's a what island it's my left eye and i'll never forget. She literally like. I lift my head up to the sky. My mom with her nails. I have my. I look into it. The right and with her nail like sees black thing and just polls it out of my eyes socket and maybe grow. So i don't know she gives a graphic warning or anything but For those that little squeamish. Sorry i'm late on that graphic warning. So she put her finger in my pulls out his black turf pellet that was jan deny for basically like a whole quarter of a football game a high school football game. And i'm like there was. And i swear i felt this indentify i forever but going back to the point of moms like it was awesome for mom to do that. You know and i. That's why we have moms to give to be there for us in dire situations and our highs and lows our family. My parents are always there for us. Especially nothing like your mom being there for you to and so i always i always like talbot my mom. I always like to bring up that story because it's just like she duxford and figuring fingernail on my and got this piece of turf out but again just want to give a happy mother's day to all mothers as people men women whoever you are. We know that a lot of us would not be who we are today without without you guys in our lives so again. Happy mother's day to all the mothers and fathers will come around to.

PMS 2.0 479 - SummerSlam Recap, QB Competitions In The NFL, Ian Rapoport, Michael Lombardi, Michael Cole, & AJ Hawk

"Hello it is monday. August twenty third lot to talk about a lot of guests. The boys fucking today. I can't thank you enough for allowing us to be a part of your day to day. If by the end of this show you enjoy it. Please be a friend. Tell the front if not just act like it never ever happened. Let's get to this thing ain. Today's show should be fantastic. Three guests today yesterday. Join us michael cole. Voice of friday night smack don invoice. Wwe for the last twenty five years. Join us in about seven minutes because just two nights ago we were in front of fifty thousand fifty one thousand something in thirty six people to be. Okay forget maybe two hundred and thirty six whatever. It was summer slam just two nights ago fucking absurd life that we got to live. He lost his damn mind. Whenever a human viking showed up out of nowhere and at one point during the return. Michael cole is talking and looking brock listener points at him and actually laughs in his face for surprising him as well. Because normally with the way the wwe especially with michael being around for like twenty plus years you know he kinda hears about things you know last night. Two nights ago we were surprised about a lot of shit. I mean it was. It was a wild night in las vegas. The stadium allegiant was a beautiful place. I guess they couldn't give out food or sell food because something like a soft opening. We'll see if they get that figured out by the time the regular season comes also in a second hour. We'll have ian rapoport coming on to talk to us about a massive news break this morning. That came out of the. Nfl dot com insiders. I believe sarah might have been the first one on the beat but could have been ian as well. He'll probably tell us it was him that had the news cam. Newton is now forced to be out for five days gay because he left the facility dot some tests done and then they didn't know about a certain little asterisk in the nfl nfl as agreement for the covert situation. He he now has to go through an entire clearing process to get back in the building. The the tests were allegedly confirmed and setup by the new england patriots. They sent their starting quarterback right. That's what we've been told josh mcdaniels. I said it. Everybody saying bill belichick said at the starting quarterback of the new england patriots was allowed to leave in the middle of this covert protocol to go get tests. Elsewhere was for tested every single day out there negative test the entire time then when he came back there was a misunderstanding. They didn't know that he had to be on the sideline or kind of Quarantined away from everybody. For five days. I might have too much respect for the new england patriots. No i'm might be a person that holds bill. Bella checks big ass brandon too high regard. I might be thinking that the new england patriots would never ever ever in a million years allow their starting quarterback to leave the building. Not knowing that he's not gonna be able to practice for five days whenever he comes back. There is no way the new england patriots didn't know this. Now everybody's coming out and saying you know it's it is a little asterisk in there. It's in the entire agreement. This the new england patriots. We're talking about the greatest general manager of all time greatest head coach of all time. They're always thinking ahead so much. Everybody says they are cheating all the time cheating. All the time the evil empire because they're smarter than everybody situational football and you're telling me in this situation they let their starter out of the building and then all we didn't know you had to go jail five days man. You're in the middle of the quarterback competition with a guy. We drafted the first. We love cam. Kim's we we love everything about you bring to the team. Yeah you're in the middle of real competition. Everybody's asked him because he other guys doing pretty good but so are you. Hey last year kinda got cova. Got a fucked over. Couldn't really do anything you're coming back. You said i ain't going out like that. You do your whole thing you're back. You're the starter. And and now you've got to go to jail for five days and middle training camp while we're trying to make decision who's starting quarterback in everything trying to get better at boston. Connor representative of the mass holes in new england. Patriots fan base. They did this on purpose. No no that would never happen. You just said hey. The patriot term believe what situational football correct situational. Covert is a whole different animal. After a lot of asterix's that people don't really know about and he tested negative every single day. It's very confusing. What really went on here. So i don't understand completely why he's not playing but joint practices this week. Do with the giants baggage. Just real quick. I would like to make it clear that i do not believe that the patriots i mean people have been saying this improbably. Do believe an would believe this because this is something that is believable coming from the new england patriots organization with the way. We've all held them in such high regard it winning at all costs or whatever you do. Just like that's conspiracies. Go of court right to psycho could be fucking real. Could be fucking we you know could be fucking real bill. Belichick was his big ass brain. Talking to that staff map attrition boys. And how do we do as pure. How do we know his camp. It's believable that they knew that he was going to have to go to jail and not come back because that's what the patriots are. I don't think they did that. I think this is actual misunderstanding. And if he got tested every single day and he was negative and comes back and he tested negative. Two more times. It's like did we hear is a new thing about cova being dormant for for that many days whenever you're passing tests daily tests. I don't know. I don't know if we know enough to be doing this. But i know cam notes getting fucked here. Yeah was it. did it have something to do with. Because he left and went to something that it was team approved. But it wasn't in the facility. And i don't know what his vaccination status but like if that changes then when you come back in but to your point like i thought early like oh yeah definitely do this on purpose but bill doesn't seem like they wouldn't want cam to miss a week's worth of practice even if he was going to be back. Yeah exactly so like to do it in like a move or it's like okay. Now we can. Have max start like i was like okay. There's yeah there's no way that they actually did this on the internet is i mean. That's gaining steam. Old get heavy steam all day today thinking about in. I would like to go on the record. Although i lead this entire thing off with you know maybe i respect them too much. No no no. No no look the internet's boys about carson wentz quentin nelson and what happened with them too but cam newton's coming game i am classic reflection by the way the most new england thing about time. Great move. I do not believe they did this on purpose. I think this is something that maybe was a new protocol that had two hundred pages on it that they didn't necessarily see or i soon. There's somebody in the building is supposed to know all that shit. Yeah absolutely compliance officer or something like that is. His only job is stuff like this. Somebody had to fuck this up. You know like who unless the nfl is just creating this to try to force. Doing patriots fans are saying the wheels wheels turning right now. Maybe this is ernie adams back in the building like ernie. We missed something here that you would have picked up. We need you back now. So doesn't ever happen again. Because ernie was the guy stealing the signals and stuff. No he wasn't on the field before being like go. That cuba stakes. He can't throw to his left. So we're going to not cover on the left side of the field and its cover on the right side of. Don't put that on ernie adams ever. I'm like that's what everybody says. Obviously the reason why they were getting the spy gate stuff was so they could fill the rain man. That's up on the top. He could see it and just dissect it very quickly. I mean if that's what they're doing everybody's looking for there's there's thirty one teams fernie adams i wanna let you know that little paring averni and bill is something that you know. Earning doesn't talk much. I guess although he's been a couple of those docs what a fucking tag team they were leave honestly made me think about this yesterday. One bill belichick retires which he might never but if he does what if steps the ernie role and then his son steps into the head coach and general. Hey i'm just throwing that out. There could have could happen. And would you did deflect towards it sounded like was carson wentz and clinton nelson back on the field practicing wa already what was initially projected as five to twelve ship. Okay five to twelve weeks with at least two weeks so these songs a bitches laid out on bed can't move because no blood can circulate through the foot after the same exact surgery is had by carson and quinton nelson for an injury that never happens. It was a developmental anomaly for clinton nelson. He was born with an extra bone in his foot that chipped off and was around. They had to go and extract and carson wentz obviously broke his foot in high school. His bone was hibernating in his foot somewhere until he decided to become a coat and plays best football and boom. It's out there five to twelve weeks. These guys must be out. That was like two and a half weeks ago. Got their back practicing doctor. David porter needs to be doing every foot surgery on anybody. We need moving from here on that. Five to twelve became like ten days in this hardy stood cut. That's a clydesdale to. He's not a little guy. There's a lot of weight going on that foot. When he's bounced. Yeah he. I mean he looks good out there carson. Wentz week one i projected. I goddamn doctor athletic trainer. But i said hey week one i feel good about it. It seems like carson wentz and quinton nelson her all the way back. Even though jacob decent melander big quarterback someday i assume somewhere maybe i who cares at this point. Put the conspiracy hats on a second. I saw this morning. I'm not no one in here. Saying it. But i saw it on twitter quite a bit people are saying. Yeah both those guys. Just fucking ed cova. They didn't break their breakthrough observed food everywhere. I saw Well i don't know if they had md's or what. But i saw a decent amount of tweets saying wait a minute why would why would they say carson wentz is going to be out twelve weeks. If he's only going to be out about thirteen days which is you know by ovid. I'll is that nobody here. Would i know. Think chris ballard and frank reicher gonna run that type operation. You guys allow. What did you say. In the face of chris ballard on. Hey chris is trying to bamboozle and swindle is base. That's what you think is happening. I didn't say it. I just said i'm as a lot of people are saying i'm thumbing through the tweets and it's like wow you guys feel this way okay all right. I don't think that's the case. Just like i don't think bill intentionally made Cam newton not be able to play quarterback for five days while he's starting quarterback during training camp in the middle of competition with backup drafted very early in the nfl draft. I'm not i'm percents short. There was quite a popper for went back on air. Because i just realized i was pronouncing sicily on his name so i was maybe the most disrespectful of everybody in an entire portion of the show. That is regrettably still going on right now. I would like to send all my t's ps to mr cecilia morse. I apologize sir. Your name is spelled like sicily. Though a place that. I absolutely love doors i apologize. Jodi thousand man. Who i assume has some things to say about this College football national champion superbowl champion jerry. What you do watch you do what you did. Okay so. I caught a little clip of you going crazy on on me and your desk and the boys jumping in. I'm not gonna like it was great. I was laughing out loud by myself as i watch you guys. Try to tear down. Because you're throwing these absolute garbage statements about me that i did things on purpose. Did all this. Like if i really wanted to. I could really mess that desk. Could if anyone walks in the room you accidentally not thirteen things on once again. It's my fault that you destroyed my stuff. i understand. listen. I didn't realize destroyed. You're trying you're trying to set me up for failure to put that celsius can three-quarters away drank raipur. Wear we be kicking it. All you know. There was like four cans that we had different amounts of liquid. When i showed up so not celsius. Kansas are all empty cans. Are all empty around here okay. What about the lotteries right here. The baseball bat was just throwing around. There was three three liquid death cans there one of them had a bunch of ads and stuff in it other water and other one who knows what was in it and then all of a sudden. You're thinking i left one there. I mean there's definitely there was a couple of the ashland's right here okay. That is yeah by the way. I don't know if you know that this one is just here. Hey i do pound goes if you're wondering do pound of liquid death or two by the way we want to We didn't nick went to a concert here. Only water option was look with death. Oh it was a beautiful sight option was with. I think it's starting to happen especially with the plastic stuff. That's going on water but nonetheless they could you street this with a little bit more respect. You picked up my laptop. That steve jobs made himself and threw it on the ground and left it there the entire time that because you brought your laptop. Did you have a laptop here. no i i. I was talking to connor before the show to make what about this. What is this guy. I don't know pat. Use it for you to whatever said. I don't need that.

Don't you dare all on a- and say what's this for like you've never seen what a computer is in what you could've you bows there. There's another computer next to that.

How does he night this lady. This lady is the emotions comparable person not only in that stadium in pittsburgh but potentially the entire world one human there.

She legitimate in him. The whole. i'd like to hold himself back. Look at the guys. just shake his head either. Golly i have to act tough. I have no problem with this guy get caught scott cottam once at least i mean he made him backup for half a second. Yeah i guess the boyfriend husband date whatever. It was co worker ticket person sitting next to her if he just was sitting next. God is pleased. God stahl poor guy. Let's talk about some stuff happened around the nfl. That isn't the pittsburgh steelers or one lady that does not represent all pittsburgh getting her male counterpart knocked the fuck out at a preseason football game and we said this is going to happen by. The football games have had their moments already once we saw the nba fans fighting in baseball fans fighting like well. Wait until it's like gladiator. Like sport. back air. Be some blows blows thrown and we have to remember. We don't know for getting back into it. We're definitely out of it. There are some people that they'll punch in the fucking face. I remember that. Hey as you go out in public. They don't care how many beers you've had how how that couch was for eighteen months. They don't care how many kids you had to homeschool on zoom. They don't care how drunk you haven't been and how drunk you are now. They'll punch you right in the mouth and ellie bunch of mouth. If the person you're with is fucking up so just keep that in mind as we go back inside. Aj hop joining us now is an insider from the nfl. Dot com insider gang senior mafioso of the insider mafia at the nfl. Not only tom. Pella sorrow and garafolo. It's got leads george. Ladies and gentlemen host of the canceled rap sheet in friends in rappaport going on is cecelia on insider no. He is a esteemed in well-respected host to according to you sits in chairs. That are too big okay. That's not what we say you said. Classic journalist nation classic journalist move what he what we've said is your network that you work at. Nfl network just has zero regard for andrew's life at all. They put joe thomas close to the camera. They put him back in the camera they put. Willie mcginnis zoomed in eight k. Then they got him in ten. Adp back here. Seven twenty sitting on a love seat. I mean i'm just trying to stick out for the guy. Let him know. We are sorry for mispronouncing his though i am very sorry. Let's talk about what your little gang broke. Though today. i believe cam. Newton five days out. Patriots didn't know about this. How did they not know about this. Is there a covert person. That's opposed to know about this. What is going to unfold next. Especially if he doesn't have tolbert. Let's get them back out there. And what are we doing. As far as i know. He does not have kobe. But that's actually not what this is about. So you know there are different rules for players who were vaccinated and unvaccinated cam as we learn today and we should have had an idea. Because he's been wearing masks in interviews and other places but cameras unvaccinated. That is what we learned today because we know that because he essentially was gone away from the facility for a day for an appointment for a reason I believe but not one hundred percent. Sure that the team was aware of this on some level he believed got tested somewhere else. Not realizing that you needed to be tested at the facility in the nfl specific testing program. So basically what happened is cam missed a test. Even though it seems like he tried to do the right thing he still quote unquote missed a test because he is not vaccinated he now is a five day entry period like anyone else who leaves of facility or misses the test. So he is not going to be able to be back in the village on thursday. Which means that mack jones got all of them. I team reps today at practice. So ian do think the patriots saying like did they think cam. We'll be back in time to get tested a foxborough or the fact that you've got tested off site had to know like if you're not back if you miss a test like it's not good for you i. I don't know exactly who knew that. He was getting tested elsewhere. I do believe the patriots knew that he was headed somewhere else. place as yet undetermined and unnamed But i don't know specifically if the patriots new we plan to get tested elsewhere you know teams have had basically Basically every team has an expert who is in charge of covert right so these people know the rules now. Sometimes things fall through the cracks sometimes. Not everyone's aware of everything. It's the same thing with players who you know some players cheat and get busted some accidentally cheat and get busted. This is sort of like a player who accidentally takes a supplement and goes. I'll man like. I could could've just called but i didn't realize announce suspended like this seems to be more of an oversight than something grievous but still away for five days with mack jones. Getting his reps. That's not something that i think for the patriots. Probably not a huge deal for cam. It's not a good thing at all. Bill belichick definitely wants to best quarterbacks on the team during training camp but i this is definitely much more devastating for cam. Newton and his quarterback petition is very topical with mack jones. Who was look good but cam has looked very good as well. Yeah i don't. It's hard for me to believe in. It's hard for me to believe that this was overlooked in especially with. I don't know i just. I have so much respect for the patriots. I have so much respect for camp. Like i just i've been around the nfl especially in this cova protocol world. Without strict. everything is let alone. Everything else with drug testing. You get tested by one company. Like i just. I don't know i feel like there's this gonna cause a lot of conspiracy fodder but let's move on to another conspiracy andy dalton still the starter in chicago. Justin fields playing great. Football fields came out and said he wishes the fans would be a little bit more respectful. To andy dalton. Red rifle. I agree by the way guys make place for your team. Fields mania is happening. Obviously they traded future picks for him. How's that going to play out in nagee right in pace. They're gonna fire if they stink this year right. So is that going to change anything you think were. They pretty comfortable in their positions and their dead set on what they're gonna do. And why is any dalton. Kinda getting overlooked in this entire thing here so i was in chicago and wednesday and i met with with patient and matt nagy right and so i asked specifically a mike. My if i'm going to talk about the quarterbacks like our firm and set in saying that end all going to start week one and matt nagy said yes. Andy dalton will start one which is sort of what we knew honestly solid news or anything but because fields has impressed. And because there's games and we see these back of quarterbacks out and play so well against lower competition yes but still plays so well. It's unfortunately a question that has to keep being asked me the same thing in san francisco. I think it's safe to say trae. Lance that are pretty up down performance the other night. But we're still asking the question. Is jimmy diva starter. So in chicago dalton's gonna start. Field has been awesome like everything. They hope talent wise. He's really smart. He cares about it. He's got sort of the swag that. I think they like in other words. Like a guy a quarterback that people follow and like it also seems like andy we sort of thought any dalton was like a real pro but it seems like he absolutely has been in helping fields and not not being jerk in a way that some veterans could be so it seems dones going to start until he doesn't right like he's gonna start until at some point. It becomes clear to absolutely everyone that. He's not the best quarterback on the team anymore. And at that point it'll be field team. And then here we go. What about trae lance out in san fernando. You mentioned them. I watched last night man. He threw a nice little boat across the middle for a touchdown. Right as i was i remember. Aj isn't he. I know he's impressive. Like what what's the situation like out there. Yeah it seems like again fields is not gonna start in chicago but it seems town wise readiness wise. He would have a shot. It feels like trae lands just for me watching from talking to people i've talked to is a little bit further way. The talent is the talents. What is i mean. Not throw to travis benjamin. I was like like i was watching. That was impressive There's been other parts of the game where managing it you know doing the right thing looking at the right. read it just. It hasn't all been there. Which is really fine. I mean this is a guy who literally played one game last year and came from a lower program mc no one expected him to be able to come this year. So i mean i think they would like this to be patrick. Mahomes really literally sits the whole year. Garoppolo plays bein for a team that otherwise is a playoff ready roster and then you make the transition after the season. Only thing i would say is garoppolo has been injured somewhat. Frequent lane is career. At what point does he cracked the door. Open and let trae lance takeover. That's what's going to be. I think really fascinating forty nine or season. Well let's go ahead. And continue on the rap sheet playing around training camp quarterback conversations dak prescott jerry. Jones said if tampa tonight. He'd be fucking playing. Get outta here. So he's all good the shoulder the latte whatever the hell it was is all good. He's just got a little. Soreness feel very comfortable with where he's at. And what are some other storylines. We should look for for knox tomorrow night. Anything you're in the right area by the way good research because that actually is yeah basically right there like it's not a check it's not a football injury like a baseball injured right. So very he's and he's gonna be fine tests were fine and everybody freaked out about him taking mri. It sounded like it was more like which is make sure. This is okay Compared to anything else he is going to be. Good hundred percents I believe as my esteemed colleague also reported on. I don't know when it was at some point this weekend. Either saturday or sunday. remember Dak is on track for week. one so he's not gonna play in the preseason. We wanted have seen him on his ankle. I don't send any reason to worry at all. But i do know this. The fact that he was actually honest and the fact that they are like you'll see on hard knocks. He is not thrilled about not practicing hot. Like it sort of presented in kind of like a jokey way like he's not happy about missing reps right. That's just that's just the way it is but them holding back he's probably gonna benefit him in the long and it's interesting about nice couch. It's interesting about him and his and his ankle and he was like sixty passes teammates in april. Like he's fine and going to be ready. Okay that's good news for the dallas cowboys and for hard knocks. Maybe bad news for tampa. Bay buccaneers hurt anything about the tampa. Bay buccaneers other than the fact that they got into a bunch of fights with the titans. They're gonna go undefeated house camp down there not no conversations really out of tampa bay at all. Tom just talked about whenever he feels as if he can't be a championship caliber quarterback he'll hang them up until then he's going to keep playing these enjoying it. I don't remember where the interview came from. Tom brady said that. Is there any. Think peter king. Yeah shots peter king by the way gives great quotes and shit like that to talk about especially in his dead time but is there anything coming out of tampa that we need to know about. Or are they gonna go seventy no antonio brown landed a very clean left on somebody. I saw that. Is there any other news. They're going to be really good So it's weird alike when when a team is they don't have any new starters and they have joe tryon who i think is going to be really good drastic but probably a little more of a part time player early there first rounder. They're just good. And so i think what a team returns. Everyone has all their coaches back as frigging tom. Brady is their quarterback who looking as good as ever. I don't know how much there is to say like. I was down there for a camp tour as well. And even when i was on talking about the bucks there wasn't a lot to say because they're still good the a is is not easing up on them at all like i think i think basically his sort of belief is like i need to go with a harder on them because they just one super bowl not. I want him feeling good about themselves so i sounded like practice pretty intense for them. It's also like because of covert like. Everyone celebrated them obviously but it's not like they went out to a bunch of banquets and parties and red carpets. Because the kobe situation this world is in so at least. The team thinks that they weren't sort of de like other super bowl champs have been so i think they're going to be ready and good and that that that opening game is really awesome. I agree that. What about down in tennessee your bud. Mike rebelled test positive for covert and he has a show what to negative tests within forty eight hours of not as ten days for him. We know where he's at and it's not it's not ten days because he has vaccinated and similar to cam like this. The situation is different. If you're vaccinated versus unvaccinated show. I believe it's too negative tests within twenty four hours of each other for twenty hours. Apart i should say and then he's back in good to go. Sounds like symptoms or only pretty mild so just needs to test negative in And get back in you know now. It's also raises two more questions. Like was anyone else who was did he. Pass it anyone there on the practice field right now and i haven't seen any additions to the covert test so kobe lists so hopefully it might be just him Which you know you're supposed to be less able to transfer it if you're vaccinated. Maybe that helped in this case. Yeah there was socially distancing obviously to proper protocol talking wrapping for host of rap sheet and friends in nfl dot com and nfl network senior. Insider the nfl. You think secretly loves this coverted five days out cam. Newton cova five days out thing because this is even more so like. Hey these vaccines here is. There's no chance of them leaning up on this on this. Is something actually want to see happen because a magic this in the middle of the season. That's probably going to be the memo by the way. Hey the middle of the season right. It's going to. I mean there's going to be cases where players are high risk now. There's not a lot of vaccinated players anymore. Like i think you know some team. I think there's a couple teams with more than ten. But like as you get down to the fifty three. You're going to have probably just a handful of unvaccinated guys but they're going to be high risk close contact. We're gonna miss missa game and if it's you know if it's a situation like cam if it is a quarterback if it's a star player then you know i don't know if the nfl will do a commercial about it or whatever but it's very noticeable and everything everyone has said is like there are competitive advantages to being vaccinated. This is an example like if cam loses his job because maxine. because he wasn't there like no i. i don't think. I don't think anyone would be like if he sprained an ankle. Mac won his job. I think people would be sort of like sad for cam or whatever. I don't think anybody will be now because like everyone has the opportunity of accidents do not. Yeah so there's going to be people that hate you for setting that. Obviously that's the world that we live in and it's just i mean that is just the world we live in. We don't i mean everybody's gonna fight about everything. But like i think a lot of people are initially saying that the new england patriots knew this was going to happen and they wanted to name mack jones and starter in a fashion that it does. There's no sympathy at all. It's like we it was his. There's just so much shit involved in this that it's hard to not think there was an oversight somewhere. Let me just jump in real quick somewhere like the problem. I do think the patriots love matt jones. So i don't want i mean they really. They really do cameras playing well. Yes and the only thing. Bill actually really cares about his who gives them the best chance to win so i would sort of be not for that conspiracy theory but at least i would understand. It might give them best chance to win right now because he has looked probably better to me than he had at any point last year. Definitely definitely i mean early. Last year there was that there was a couple of bursts of all. This team's going to be really good then. Cova came in for cameron then arise over whatever. But it's an wild situation. That's unfolding right now up in new england and let's assume mack jones is going to start from this but will that make the patriots better who knows camps should be pissed in probably is in. There was an oversight. That should've happened. Go ahead talk rap sheet. What's the deal with the saints. Who are they gonna play quarterback because tastes them hill recently said that if they don't see him as core back then he needs to get out of there and sean payton said he doesn't really want to name him the star because then he loses him as a gadget player on special teams. Like are both those guys are gonna play tonight. Who's going to get the nod going forward for them. Sounds like james starts tonight which makes sense because some the other day and so i think both play I don't know for sure who has quote unquote leading this. And it's hard for me to say. Because i haven't been able to see practice there I just know this. Like jay mrs rights. If he's not throwing the ball to the other team talent wise he should clearly be the starter. There's obviously a lot more that goes into it and maybe theoretically they could play both. But if james goes out and plays really well tonight and doesn't turn the ball over i could see the drumbeat being very very loud for jameis winston. He's a number one overall. Pick for a reason he is a little wacky and kind of crazy people like him and follow him in his way. I i think it's going to be really fascinating and tonight will probably tell us a a real lot about which way it goes. Can't wait to watch corner. You rock dude pay rent sheet not only are the taunting finds ship. Abedi lemay also. Because of the penalty was fined. I think half of his paycheck from the week are we can expect that for the entire season. They're going to players as well as throw these flags on. Yeah i mean. I think you're gonna see it especially early on you know when there's an emphasis from the league on a specific area like number one year. Was you know. Running back to using their head is a battering ram. And then you saw a couple of guys find early and then two things happened one The emphasis kind of eases back a little bit because just get into the season and two players behavior change. So i think what you're probably going to see is less egregious examples of taunting or people doing it. A little more slyly. Nobody notices But yeah i mean you're going to see these little fine show. The nfl can kind of keep saying. Hey this is an emphasis was just keep not. Let's you know again. Be nice to people and told me on twitter. That he was gonna pay bangla lamaze. Fine how would you go about doing that. You think just sent him over one ninth of a bitcoin or something like that up. I mean people. Use a lot of people use benmaller pay palace ways to send money to people. I don't i don't have been actually have a friend. But why are we stop. Just know somebody who's your money wearing too painful Because i don't have been though and my wife has been most when i win money in golf. I liked to have people pay my wife because more humiliating and he will refuse to pay me. Because i don't have that you are an absolute idiot. But why are they only. Let's give benny lamilla one hundred. You know what i mean. The guy he's gonna he's gonna make the team i think. Nah he's going to be tough. Betty is gonna make eighteen though. But i don't like the fact that the nfl is punishing him thirty five hundred bucks when he will make what in this training camp. Five thousand six thousand bucks or something like that. How come they can't have a heart. I'll come kim heart in this guy. I mean what are they do. Have a hard actually. Because the he'll get fined and then he'll appeal. And i forget what the actual number is but there is a percentage limit of someone's paycheck. You can find them okay. So if that reaches if it doesn't reach the threshold essentially too much compared to what he's getting paid and it'll probably get reduce all right. Hopefully popley on us as good digs. Hey in colts lied to us because they said five twelve weeks and this surgery and guess what ten days. They're back on the field looking like they're ready to go. I mean it's pretty amazing. And we spent a lot of time talking about the etlinger v quarterback battle seeing the clips of carson wentz said today like. I'm not sure any of that matters wouldn't say definitively like he's definitely gonna play week one but if you're someone who thinks that wentz will be on the field week. One today was a very david. It wasn't like he was walking gingerly. Likes gust feel good and you know the fact that he had the surgery and fixed it is. It's going to end up. Being one of the best decisions he ever made. Honestly because it the issues now over you know how the muscles and tendons and stuff consort titan in rehab properly in time For the opener like that's sort of a doctor question but either way it's going to one hundred percent he'll the issue and they were so positive like the day after surgery. 'cause it went so well. Maybe they were telling us about that. Do you think that we should now act as if all projections are complete bullshit in life. Yeah let's go. Deep with it. In life i would say this and i know i've someone who was five weeks in five to twelve weeks in an up being it's gonna end up being if he plays week one. I think it'll be a couple of days short of five right so right. Yeah but he's playing seventy. How many days isn't right now. Seventeen days fourteen days thirteen days. How many days is it out until he must be. Carlos supposed to be laid out for two weeks. He's not able to move. They said he's not supposed to be. This is also part of his. He was supposed to start jogging and running. Not today but i think a couple days ago this is sort of. He happens to be in a football uniform on field. So it's not like he's literally playing a game. You slept hunting. Seventy told that is true. No this is why people there's some teams especially the sort of patriots oriented teams. Hate to give timelines because then it's like you said five to twelve what's up it's four and like that's true so they give baseline and then if a player beats it he beats it but i just. I don't think anyone expected him to expect anything. Anyone expect him to be like this. Today was a very good day for causing a man. I hope clinton nelson's doing the exact same. We need those two charlotte to the colts. Medical staff work l. Boys got degraded there. Duck dave porter magic over there with some unobtainable put it in the foothills up quicker than any foot has ever held in the past dump. He's got a question about south beach. I believe ian What are you hearing about two. He looked pretty sharp. The other night jacoby actually looked really good too but all signs point to him look more healthy and more comfortable. What do you think about a You know they've been pretty positive onto as far as like an. Hey this is like surgically shaping taking the next step which were to really is something like throwing deeper taking more time in the pocket diagnosing throwing the you know taking more shots all of the things you want to see from a first year quarterback to second year like he's looking like it you know so it's that was a really good sign. I think the dolphins are team like their defense should be really good skill wise. They got some they got some ballers specially with waddell. And i think he's going to be really electric. Just need a quarterback that can distribute to looking like this if he continues on this path. It's going to go two things one. It's gonna force everyone to not make snap decisions on rookie players. Who aren't good enough for our expectations. The first year and to it's gonna make them. You know probably team that can compete for the. The people were snap judgment because be flow was pulled him out two minute drills and it's kind of like we were told the hayes guy stinks wherever matters or whatever it was that all. That's that's a good point and that's part of it. Right is that they basically told us with the actions that this guy is not someone should be on the field But you know you gotta win now and you gotta develop them for the future. That is unbelievably tricky balance and honestly last year. There were times when i was like. We'll see which way this goes. That's going to happen this year with a lot. That's gonna happen this year. A lot like it seems like this last year was fits magic in two or was a conversation right but there wasn't really many other condos. I don't think this year. There's like i know five six actual like this guy's his ass is hot right now it is. There's a chance. I mean it's like in like in denver. Donate a starting quarterback at some point. I think probably fairly soon next probably next week or so And whoever it is let's say it's bridgewater like you know that you okkas sitting there ready. Waiting for sign of you know going going to kind of strut in and do his dance thing. Like you're doing. There's gonna be a couple of those this year. And we're going to have to get comfortable with a bunch of new quarterbacks coming in and back and forth and like just it's hard to find one and if you don't have d- guy you gotta make do with whatever couple of guys you have. We appreciate you for all your time. I mean you are very kind to us. We appreciate it when you talk about making those decisions. Do you just see like dollar signs in your mind. Because the amount of insider information on quarterbacks thoughts and oh if he has one more bag game they're ready to pull the my sources. I mean the amount of my sources about this quarterback situations are gonna be huge right. I mean that's going to be a lot of conversation. Yeah when when the and roger situation was happening in the off season people were complaining. Because all we do is talk about rogers. I'm like let's do a baby like weeks. Who doesn't love. Aaron rodgers intrigue right. Yeah well for as long as there's some shit for you to break. I appreciate it because it gives us something to talk about. We appreciate all your hard work on the same page is mitchell. Trubisky gonna get traded for like maybe and carolina's up there in buffalo already. i would be supply. I mean. I guess nothing should surprise you but i would be a little surprised at that. Everyone had a chance to sign. Mitchell trubisky in march when no one had a quarterback and thing he got was two and a half million dollars only we'll see if he's not even not even gonna joke to not mcafee money but anyway which is not. Yeah for what we say. Someone loses a quarterback is going to be interesting to see if someone calls trubisky. I'd be surprised but does he do an awful the last week in this week to make someone okay. This guy that i saw on the field last year was not good enough for this guy. They see in the field. This year is going to be good. Megi does not want to fall into that gays umbrella where tannahill leaves and has success now. Mitchell trubisky potentially does i like nagy by the way after listening to is. He did a press conference. It seemed like he was pretty comfortable and cool and everything like that. They're going to win some games though. I'm sick of watching that bullshit up there. Ladies and gentlemen he grabbed now. The world's opening backup so many new thrills or on the horizon.

I assume it's great for the cock. I feel like a lot of people were tweeting. You know the caucus ball. I mean it was a. I mean you can see how peacock v cock. I mean there's people coming after me about being a family show on stuff like i'm sorry man say a lot of words on there wasn't a pay per view though but it's still on the cock- peacock which i think has the same rules justin timberlake.

Pay per view only available and cock i'll be able to slide that in. Let's get to some phone. Shall we jayhawk stewart. We have michael lombardi joining us about eleven minutes. I cannot wait to chat with michael lombardi. It's been far too long a long time. His sons getting quoted up there in england now coaching up there. I mean he's got people everywhere. I cam situation degrees perfect for the camp situation. I feel situation be awesome. He's all about the wide receivers No block no rock. That's the new thing up there in new england for the wide receivers block. You ain't getting the ball. Take him in troy. Brown also lombardi was at eagles. Pats join practice last week as well because he lives in the area and then he knows all my syria on a mr mori for the hardy family. I wonder if that came in august. Crushing it. cecilie ana cecilia. Aw shit sure you guys are saying his name right. I'm almost positive it's cecilia. I don't know this when the assistant okay. So you're saying how do you say it cecil on. And what did you say tie cecilia. No which one is. I'm pretty silly on. He's getting a little run off of joe. Paul on cecilia. Pomigliano obviously the twitter account podcast and marketing world. I believe the brothers have really. I think they have a cnbc show now. Yeah but they do a lot of what we thought reveal was going to do for a long time and revealed did have that baton for a long time seems like he it off to the promptly on us it seems like in the business sport world and we appreciate all their services but pompey said. He's gonna pay. Benny lamaze fire. Where i'll i'll start gofundme some fucking senate thirty five hundred bucks bitcoin better. Hey you do the whole thing. They're pump i like that. I appreciate that. I don't like that that gets getting fined for that though age. I think gets bullshit whenever they start telling into the pockets of guys. That aren't gonna make a lot of money and they're only going to be able to work for certain amount of time i think that's bullshit. Aj finding preseason is weird when it's when it's guys that haven't really been the league much and it's just yeah i don't know i mean hopefully it gets all it back and not just a portion rappaport came out and said he'll appeal and he'll get his money back but then there's still like it was a penalty enough. Are we get this guy's entire run. That was massive against the team. That's based in where he went to school. I don't know if that's where he's from or not. But this guy in the colts backfield is going to be a tough make. You hopefully thirty one other teams on deuce thing. I don't like him getting fined though. Not one bit. Let's go to the phones. That's gonna smoke house in chicago and a five era angie. Phone landskrona on smokehouse. Steve thank you. I thoroughly enjoyed. Thank you smoke house. I appreciate you dude. I i was looking over and i really wanted to see tacked. Show up an annex. T and help kyle o'reilly get that three. Oh can fall and setup mackey. Pd cold re smokehouse. I appreciate the hell out of you. About adam cole adam cole in colorado last night i didn't actually take over thirty six. Allegedly the internet saying that adam coast contract is up and he is now free agent one. We would like to wish that scumbag. Good luck all future. And i hope we hope maybe retired. That'd be good for sports. Entertainment just retires hopefully deleted his twitter leeches instagram's get his twitch out. Just get out of here. Maybe moved to foreign country. Never see him again. That'd be great. Vanco did that. But i don't think that's going to happen. I think what he's gonna do is good 'cause a pretty big waves. I think whatever you wherever he ends up it's going to be a highly talks about things shouldn't be colorado last night tap down. Colorado had a handcuff to a top rope and he got his leg locked up to tap to lose that thing. 'cause washed up at this point. He lost his guy that was handcuffed at her up. I mean what are we even want. Nobody wants that guy. Whoever gets them though is going to be a big deal. Big deal whoever wherever he ends up going to be a big deal. Aj he seemed pumpkin pal around together. Aren't they well. Dude hell cards brooks to you. Did i got so many tweets. From people i get so many tweets from people. Yeah please respect for the man by the characters wealthy I've got so many tweets. San pat won't even say see 'em punks name on his own wanting to about it. I'll say this. That was a sweet pop. That was a shinui. i was awesome in chicago. You know wrestling fans have been chanting dude's name for years and years and obviously he is a guy who is still become stayed incredibly relevant in the wrestling world because of the talent that he showed whenever he was with. Wwe and after five years or so. How many years it was. I forget the exact date i apologize. That was an awesome awesome. And i i think every wrestler hopes and prays one day to have a pop like that. It was incredible. Now that being said. I wish i would have been a little bit more. I wish he would a good. I mean he's great a great talker but it was you know. I wish like he is a great a great talk. His promo is the best. I thought it was going to be and he was going to go. But i think he was just enjoying the moment so much should buy a truck about ice cream for everybody in the arena. That was the most important legendary playing. It was an ice cream bar chocolate and vanilla. Ice god those things you for a lot of money but yeah. That was an awesome night on friday. I was awesome moment for Wrestling holmen we. I didn't i knew he was back at it and see what his reaction was like. I didn't know about the ice cream. But promos what are you talking about. What l. a. rugged talk okay. He's not having trouble with promos on they punk is not having any trouble with promos l. a. Night in your guy your actual guy cameron. Grimes went after it last night. Kevin grimes gets the million dollar championship back. I think okay all right as long as it's it's there for fandango to come back and grab whatever he decides. Hey doing this thing. Let's go to maximum arizona. What's going on. Doing great of course talked about baking. Dude dirty dangle. What's going on max. Hey boys how's everyone doing today. Too shabby man. how are you doing. I'm doing good arizona sun. You got familiar with recently. soak Had to questions or not questions things.

But it's still keeping his options. Open i kind of making his future out. Here as i'm sure is whether you know gumbi as jenner that spirit or not so old i mean none of us were. Listening complimented bumpy. They're okay but max talking originally about the fiesta bowl being sponsored by caesars. And this leads me to this. Everybody's going to get into the sports book game because there's actually trillions of dollars at stake here in the long run with sports gambling and everything like that so shot to the fiesta bowl. Aj he played in it three times. You said yup three times. Great game right. I think you and i enjoyed it whenever we experience. It's amazing out there. Yeah i enjoyed it a lot at that. Point i should have said is pretty good place. I think i was drunk for most of the week. So i try and drink. I saw at that point. So i don't think i enjoyed it is fantastic. Caesar's getting involved there awesome. Can we talk about these promoted. Tweets every third fucking tweeted. This this twitter is do. This is not. can you turn them. I've been trying to turn them off your day but they act like it's a topic you follow. It happened on. Friday i put. It's not relevant. See less often. Scroll again bam again. It makes no sense so you used to be able to turn off all the shit right on twitter that do you want us to give you a advertising. That can help you because they're saying as you walk into a store basically you can get a potential coupon. Maybe or anything like that's how they were hiding things. Originally whenever they were tracking people marketing. And now i don't know if they ran out of money. Or if this is a pigs get fed hogs get slaughtered situation. Every third tweet is a promoted tweet. And it's like. I'm looking at the people that are promoting their tweets. And i'm like oh this is not what fucking twitter supposed to be but i guess all social media platforms are getting row now at this point with algorithms and this and that now with these i saw something have to re tweets and at one hundred twenty thousand views okay. Nobody's watching that. You are wasting your money. People probably hating your company more because you're actually getting into their timeline as opposed to the opposite. But everybody seems to be doing it. I actually thought about. Putting a pretty large investment into promoted tweets mocking promoted tweets. Twitter will take the money out of the building lose money. And that's what happened but this has the change. It is every third tweet on my time. When i'm getting something like oh i appreciate. Jb's move. like hey i think you're probably hilarious guy. I didn't watch curb your enthusiasm. I've seen some of your commercials. I don't need to see him. Dressing up like fucking caesar every third tweet. I appreciate it. I respect the fact that caesar's going all in. But i don't think that's the right way to be doing who's who's clicking on that. Oh you just fucked up my entire tomlin. Oh i want to do that. What companies are doing and thinking that his success is it successful. that can't be right. I mean if they're doing it it must be working out working somewhere wrong. Twitter i agree is rude. I don't it's not like individuals promoting they're always like whatever weird company or product right. I've seen individuals. Now promoting tweets are sorry ass tweets. And i'm like all right yeah. Twitter has a natural function to promote tweets. Gay it's called the re tweak that is that is how you do it okay. In that like. I don't know and it's almost like abuse leads restriction. Obviously they have to dial that back at least fifty percent. I mean it is you do one scroll of. Oh what's going on in the world you know. Eighty are they setting us up to. Hey pay four ninety nine a month. You don't have to see all these said something that definitely one thousand percent somehow and i guess that's smart. I guess that's smart out of them but that's all the twitter is now. Twitter is pinned to the point. Now too where. It's not used to be every three scrolls you'd see the same promoted tweet three times now. It's like there will be three different promoted tweets from three different cup so like you can never escape it really like every time you're refreshing your time line and scroll into something new. It's one of these different places but they're multiple people that are doing it. I have no idea why it's happening know. Aj have you watched any of them. I'm on twitter all literally all the time. I've not seen no one all you know what you re tweet taking my business. I just i don't want people do. It obviously has to work on some. I don't think it's working on are the people that are making. The decision suspend these millions of dollars in advertising from the platform. Saying oh look at these numbers. We're getting like those aren't real numbers. And that's the internet based great numbers fake news but those companies have stopped advertising with twitter once they realize. Hey says all this but we're not getting any traffic driven to our our site or whatever we're trying to sell you so they're going to go somewhere else. You're giving way too much credit to these people that are making advertising decisions and not not everywhere not everywhere in a lot of places. You got some real brilliant minds may joining us a brilliant months a man who has done literally everything in the nfl. We haven't talked to him in a while. I cannot wait to catch up pies on a man who is not only a host of the. Gm shuffle into lombardy line and every other thing he's author newsletter these former gm confidante you name it ladies and gentlemen michael limbaugh. How are you good to see. Dha hope all is well off excited to be here. Might we have missed you immensely. You look fantastic. Have you been on a. You've been on some sort of diet of some sort. You look good right now. Thank you pat. I appreciate it. Yes trying to. I have this three hundred pound man that list inside of me and i'm trying to get rid of some success. Yes skull put down. It's it's a long way to go yet pat. I mean it's still a long way to go. I need you to turn your phone sideways. I think but whenever we Whenever we talk about michael bardy bingo nailed it all right. We'll reframing yeah let me do this all ended up here. A little bit about at the university of arizona spent some time out of your helping them out. So are you speaking. are you speaking to them. How your voice was echoing into the thing off the table. So that's why you were cutting out a little bit so we turned it sideways so the speakers that way are you speaking arizona. Yup amount here on a couple of days. Yeah just spend time around the football program. So i'm really looking forward to the final result gear on happy. Yeah you look good. You sound fantastic. Football season's right around the corner. What are your thoughts on. What's going on in new england right now. This cam newton stuff by zone. I don't understand how this was an oversight or a misunderstanding. That seems like something more than that. Right yeah i mean. I i don't get it either. I spent last tuesday up there and you know everybody was really excited about the team. I think back jones is developing and coming along and cam at you know his best game on thursday night. I thought he had a good day of practice. The went the to say that. I was there so you know. Obviously this is a setback there. go to go into the file season game with mack. Jones says the starter and and brian horder to finish up. So you know i. I don't think it's going to affect. Who will start on sunday at the open game on four thirty against the miami dolphins i think campbell still be the starter but i do think that this is problematic especially when it appears like he hasn't been vaccinated which i think is always going to be a problem for everybody. My doesn't this seem like something that would happen to thirty one other teams but this is something that doesn't seem like a patriots team would let happen. It does seem kind of on out of character. Yeah well it is. I mean especially when they eat compliance with with in terms of the standardized testing and what happened with tests and all that. I definitely think that. That's that's got a little bit of a concern but look they'll rally around the disa- great opportunity for mac jones. I mean mac. Jones's come on and you know last week against philadelphia. I thought he played really well. Runcie's from the dell huddle two weeks in a row. He's done a nice job with that e looks like he's growing in the offense and you know when one guy misses practice the next guy takes over and i think that you know that comes a lot easier and i agree with you. I think it's not typical of the windward but they'll figure out a solution. Let's talk about. What if macas you set. Incredible opportunity and i was thinking so far ahead the entire time i wasn't even thinking about the day-to-day here mac. It's act like the starting quarterback here in meetings now in taking the reps in the locker room everything like that for five days. This is his squad basically now. That cam is being held out. Why is there any chance you that bill and josh see something out of them be like you know what it's now's the time or do you think it is kind of still in the future. No i think look. They're practicing against the giants all week. Going to practice against the giants starring on wednesday thursday. And i think wednesday and thursday. They plan on sunday in the file precedes again. So he's gonna get great work against the defense that you know. We don't play pretty well the end of the year last year. So this is a great opportunity for mac jones to continue to develop and play faster. You know the number one thing. I think we have to understand about rookie. Quarterback says they all play slow. Thought you saw it last night. Trae lance even though in the second half you've got better. They started out playing slow because the games move into fast form. And i think that ultimately the more reps you get the faster you'll end up playing which helped back jones and i think he's starting to play a little faster than from week one to week two so and now having the giants to come in to practice against us another advantage he has. What the hell do you have on your finger going to wear it you as well where it when you know when you're out visiting people so yeah yes. You should absolutely wear that when you're speaking to or visiting college. Football team has the goal. And you might not all of. You might not know me well. You know what this is trying to get here. I mean not as awesome. Good for you. I gotta wear them so you know if i don't wear it. Now what am i gonna wear house podcast life. How's everything going good. This good you know. I mean the daily coach has been growing leaps and bounds. So we're happy about that. Podcast is doing good. It's good to talk about football. Miss you guys. So i haven't had talked to you guys. I miss it. I listen to hammer down. You know so. I've just tried to stay all the world. I see travelling. You're out in arizona last week. You're a hell of a spot. I mean thought it was great. I mean i'm following you. You you get some miles on that private plane. It's getting a bit pricey but yeah we're living in a little bit. I wish i would've known you were out. There stuck around and see the hammered down. Boys ron heater can't wait to have you kinda help us out through football season in before the boys other questions because we all have missed you. I think whenever you talked about that rookie quarterback situation as a former general manager in the nfl. Okay place that needed draft quarterbacks high on a regular basis whenever you have the future of the franchise sitting in your building and you have a veteran quarterback playing. Let's say like andy jimmy g. I mean you can go around all these situations this year. It feels like there's more this year than there has been in some time. How do you know when to balance one to pull the trigger. Because nagy pace they have a plan. You know and i'm not saying that justin fields necessarily outplaying. Andy dalton. I'm just saying the niners. They have a plan. Everybody has a plan. But how realistic is that. If the plane doesn't go to schedule you know what i mean like now. Realistic is that really. I think this you know it's never a obt we start. Justin feels that we start. Andy dalton. I think you have to imply something we talked about. Leadership would all second order thinking so with a lot of these. Decisions are really problematic for kyle. Shanahan for bill belichick for matt. Nagy as if i start. Let's say start back jones. And let's say mike jones those employees while the first two weeks and he. It's the game's not perfect for many gets into a little bit of a faulk. How do i get him out of it. Woulda why do right. If i start trae lance and he does and we lose two games and he throws picks what do i do whereas if i start jimmy g. i let this kid kata develop as he goes along and then when the time is right i put them in guaranteeing. He's got to have some success. That's what i should do. We as fans. We wanna rush this thing along. And i think as coaches you have to have second-order thinking you've got to say okay if i start fields then i know andy dalton. It's really not going to be part of the team this year. I'm going all in on fields. No matter how bad he plays not changing quarterbacks. If i start dalton. There's going to be a time where i'm going to have to put in the game. So you're kind of looking at it slow bit like you got the ball and you know you're going to put one in the pocket you gotta line the cue ball back to hit the second shot up. Capello spin on little english gonna play for the next shot of black widow and all. She was unbelievable. All of the guys situational base. Like i watched tree lance last night and you got a super bowl. Contending team in san francisco right are you going to let him go out there and hold the ball and and get sacked in may mess up your super bowl chance in september when you could allow him to grow and eventually he'll become a good player right and so let's keep trying to win games when jim. You took us to a super bowl two years ago when attempt ten point lead going the fourth quarter. Why not wait. Why not let lance develop and get really comfortable because right. Now they're thinking way too much march chase thinking way too much. he's not thinking about. Catch the boys about run. The right route strengthen too many passes this is what happens mike with a quarterback so if you will get like let's say chicago right now just coming out and saying like i don't think it's right when they chant my name if they boo andy or whatever. How like. How well does andy. Don't have to play to not have justin fields come in replacing because i feel like the first three out if they're in chicago they're to be going crazy. And how much does the crowd way into that type of shit because you have to think about them at some point right. I think it was the guys in the locker room to youth. You have both been locker room. You know that you were in situations. Where you had star quarterbacks. Nobody was going to challenge them. But the reality of this team nose to the team has more confident you know the team knows. Hey feels in the game. We're gonna play better or if we have dolphins game you know he'll help us out. I think it's real challenge that if and to me it's really for matt nagy and ryan pace. We're where our team going this year. I don't think there were suppo. Continue team i don't think they'll win seventy games. I would start fields of discharges his process moving along and build the team around that. If i'm in san francisco round competing for a chance to go to the super bowl. I'm gonna start rob lowe inlet lance developed. So i think it's all situational based and i think that that's really you got to know who your team is before you make that move. Let's go to a guy who's gonna love you saying. The bears are going to stink this year. Tie schmidt green bay packer owner michael. Speaking the packers after everything. We saw this off season with rogers. A lot of people were saying. You know that for whatever reason why the locker room was that. It was a distraction that the packers weren't going to be super bowl contenders this year just because the the team chemistry wasn't right or whatever. What's your take on that whole situation. How do you think the packers are going to be this year. I think they'll be fine. I think the chemistry will be fine because they know the best player on the team on field for look look. We can go back to that conference championship game. If they would have helped out. Billy milner at left tackle. If they would have not given up cheap touchdown at the end of the first half. They turned the ball over to start the second. Half that fourteen point swing. I mean you make a strong argument. That the that the packers that gave slip away. Brady throw street or sections in that game and so i think he got a really good team in green bay. You made some really horrendous mistakes. Coaching is not protecting the tackles. Given up the touchdown at the end of the half that you can get that back going again. Everybody in that locker room has to play better coaches and players. And i think that they're right there on the cost. I mean they get they get everything kind of a line for them this year. They can be. They might be twelve and five but they might be a better team than they were last year. I'm interested to see how the whole saga plays. I randall cobb. Going to have to play well but you know a lot of people said aaron. Rogers choked in the nfc championship choked tom. Greatest of all time. We are not three picks game. You get a win. it doesn't matter it's like viteri one of his super bowl game winners before the game in that game. He missed kicks before. Nobody gives a fuck. If nobody gives a winning cures everything. In the end of that thing aaron goes the super bowl. They're they're talking about how great of nfc championship. He has and everything like that instead. Couple plays couple of decisions. They're out there now. All hell broke loose. Did you watch that along and judo. When i was a general manager in the nfl. If i was a president. Nfl and i had an fucking rogers's mike boorda because this is what every other person has ever had any power in the nfl. Is that if. I aaron rodgers as my quarterback. You're dreaming your entire life to have a guy like aaron rodgers as your quarterback. You're doing everything you can right. Isn't that something that should have been thought of. And how do you think they fix that with the player. Well i think a lot of that game was on the floor. I really do i. I don't think aaron rodgers played. I think arash got hit from the very first play. The game got sacked with much me. Got the ball. The end of the half. You got fifty three seconds. He just got sacked at the end of the half. Just run the out. Instead they throw the interception on the middle against cover to give up the touchdown with seven seconds to go at the end of the half. You know there was a lot of coaching airs in that game. A lot of miscalculation by them thinking that they can get five in a row. when they can't block the front right so i think buzzer general manager by was the gm of the packers. I would be worried about. Rogers i'd be worried about flora. I'd be worried about pets. They obviously when they didn't bring him back but be they've got to play better. They perform at a higher level. The packers good enough to win that game. They were good enough to win that game and yet they just let it slip. Away really is their own thought. The comedy you go back and watch that tape. You can't be happy if you're a packer fan. How many opportunities you blew. So what do you think about what happened after that. You know the draft a accumulation of news release because we talked to you in some time. That whole thing really blew up. Aaron never said a word mark murphy continue to put his foot in his mouth with every email and press conference he can have now to his talk in one day after a thirty five minute press conference where aaron rodgers full baby face explains everything. And everybody's like oh. I'd be mad about that too to the next thing like basically a little bit spotty seems like they're still in good graces. There's pictures of them talking to each other. How do you handle that has a gm and how do you let it get to that point. Look at bauer the the packers. I would have flown out and spend time with rogers and basically apologized for the further lack of really helping him. You know look. I know there's a lot of situations you know. He's he's he's underpaid where he is in the and obviously he wants certain players around him that he feels comfortable with impove. The gm is to listen to that. You know you. I'm not saying you do everything he wanted to do. But he you gotta make him feel comfortable brady only culpable point with certain guys to this is just an inheritance thing. That comes with the quarterback position. When you get a great player. Dan marino wanna do he wanted. He wanted those guys he probably let. Oj mcnulty in the door and eventually that hang up working out so for me. I think you've got to be proactive. And murphy just murphy wants to get into the hall of fame. Because he's talking like he's running the tea and yet he's claiming kiss for everything. I've said this many times about the packers. He's the first first president since vince. Lombardi went there in one thousand nine hundred eighty nine. That has splintered the order of power within green bay. It's because he wants to say. And i think that is problematic. Golly yeah mike. Last year you said the patriots. They really just didn't have a good team when you were at join practice last week with the eagles. Do you see them being a contender and a playoff team and also with the qb competition. When can we expect some sort of announcement or will be not here until the dolphins game. Well i mean you won't hear anything. They're they're they're more suit a up there so you forget about that but i think that when you watch them their front seven way better. They could set an edge to save anybody's life last year. They get ball around the corner on them. It had coach spellcheck sick this year. You know judah on all the players. They've added particularly defensive front. Got how the nose tackle leading employer last week. They've got a bunch of good young players as far more kid. They drafted from alabama's. Really good this. Carl davis kuenz bounced around the league from iowa. You know it was in baltimore. Got drafted all over. He's been really good for them. So far they're way different team. Defensively getting hightower back. I don't think there is good in the secondary. They're going to need your more to come back and play. Well they need that but look they can run the football against anyone. Trent brown and jack mason the rice outline. You watched the first play of the eagle game. They take three technique and drive five yards down the field. They're going to be a physical running. Not ninety i made the damian harris is going to have a huge year for them running the ball. They've got backs. And i think they've got enough skill. Why didn't see hunter henry in practice. I in june of smith was hurt. So i didn't get the chance to see him but they're good. They're better t now. Are they better than buffalo remains to be seen. They've got a ways to go there. But they're not gonna be pushover page this year. They're not gonna be able to move them. Off the line of scrimmage. They're going to control a lot of a lot of teams. What about the other team. That they were practising against the philadelphia eagles. We know what they look like. And what do you expect from jalen hurts this year while the jalen arts has got a proven stay in the pocket. Troll of our biggest one. Look and run with jalen hurts in east. Gotta stop doing that. I think he's call to throw the ball to the tight end. He really favors urge or goddard in their offense. I think that their offensive line's gotta stay healthy. That's the big thing for the eagles. Can they stay healthy. The eagles success will be all about their defensive front right. They've got to be there. Really good front fletcher cox. You know this hargrave kid. They signed from pittsburgh finalists and shape. He looks good brandon. Graham sweat the kid. They drafted a couple years ago. They're really good upfront. There linebacker secondary's not very good. You can throw the ball on. You can win one on one match ups against them but they're fronts hard to block. Their front will be hard to block. I think the eagles will have a ways to go particularly if they get any injuries. They're not very debt. And you see first game played against pittsburgh. When put the backups in they got routed this game when it was two onto game when it was the patriots seconds versus the the the eagles seconds. It was around. The eagles. don't have a lot of depth. What are your thoughts on syria. Honey i think he's going to be look. There's no school you go to learn how to become a head coach. It's going to be all the job training. And he's and it's a collaborative effort there in philadelphia right so he's got a bunch of people helping him out. You know the general managers in his ear at the sports science people in philadelphia. They control how all practice right philadelphia. So everything is controlled. Serianni doesn't have all the control on what he wants to do. And it's going to be an on the job training program or working on gang all that control. Mike and i can guarantee right now. Once we get details. And i can try will be the best football coach in the history of the philadelphia. Eagles mark. were right now. I believe you'll get in touch. I think you should have it. I mean look. This thing never dedicated a monumental committee so just tell them look. There's no committees going on here like they've never dedicated ones to a committee. Hey that's some. That's a real problem in philadelphia. Right you got the accountant roseman in the air you got the owner in the year. That's why is that. Why doug peterson. Give me the fuck out of here. Because doug was just hanging out with carson and franken practice and everybody assumed that doug hated carson carbonated doug now they both are out of town basically and is it because they hired doug as a young guy wanted to control them then he got good was like listen. I think i can handle some more stuff than what you guys are. Allow me to do this. Not get out of here and then he just did the same thing with syria. And there's no way that's a winning recipe anywhere right. I don't think it is but they do. They believe their organization can carry the head coach. Not the head coach. Car is your position. And maybe i'm all school. Maybe i see that. I've worked with some great head coach. So i want the head coach to be the spokesman for the team. And i want him to decide. I want him to tell me how long we should practice. Not the guy. In the sports science department equals. You know that's where they've had their success and so you know if they can continue to do it. We shall see so. I think it's gonna take some time to it. works out. Syria is going to be young. And he's going to need help as he goes along. Why does he watches film with caviar. She what's ill immediately makes me believe that. He's he loves second place because as soon as joey. Josh chesnut showed up kobe shoe. Forget and now. We got syria and pushing this kobe. She narrative it's like what about the water. The fucking. Joey chesnut that fourth of july. Let's talk a little bit more about the guy commentating that fourth of july hot dog. Yes that guy's awesome hammered down digs. Can't wait to jane. Lot of excitement in the air for your return here pies on especially from dig way you just tell me what i told you in a text you tell me when and i'm i'm right there i'll do whatever you want. That's my fucking guy can't though tonight we're gonna see tastes them. Hill james winston. You got an of what sean payton likes to do to run down there. Who do you think is gonna end up winning that competition down there because days. Milk came out and said if. I'm not the quarterback. Then maybe i shouldn't be new orleans. I think that's his real issue right. So sean you know abusing to say let's put winston in the starter and we'll use tastes them hell role that we're used to seeing well. I don't think tastes them and wants to bite on that role anymore. Here's what i think. Forty million that's he wants forty million dollars. That's why right. I mean forty million to. I don't mean it we're gonna get it. Everybody wants to be in the forty nine club. Here's what happens. In new orleans watched the mostly tonight when the orleans loves to do is they loved the motion guy and set them so when they motion them through a set them. Then that's when the offense goes into play and whoever can handle that. At the line of scrimmage brees was brilliant of this they get into the right play. And i think that this is what you're gonna see who wins. The job is the guy that does that the best. I think it'll be tastes hill. Because they taste somehow will protect the football. Plus it gives sean a chance to have more loose. Plays make explosive. Plays michael thomas in there. Yeah callaway might be a good player. You know maybe smith. It's come back from his injury. But i think they're going to need to find a manufacturer points through a big klay option at quarterback and it might be tasting hill. Ladies and gentlemen former general manager in the nfl consultant. Everything like that. Gm shuffled pod. The daily coach very italian man speaking to the arizona wildcats tedy bruschi alma mater rob gronkowski. Who's coaching through here.

Okay too big. nfl stories. let off the. Shell don't know how we didn't talk about this. To be honest with my life changed a couple of nights ago in las vegas nevada in my life had changed numerous times in las vegas before but in this particular time in a positive fashion got a chance to enjoy the hell out of a massive pay per view for the wwe a nfl football stadium. Fifty one thousand. Plus there. And i got a chance to call some legendary matches in obviously too big returns next to the greatest of all time and gentlemen a man who wants covered. David koresh in baylor area down waco texas. He was also a part of a war is been on. Presidential campaigns is a big j. Journalists covered a fire. I think on a river while he was on the river surrounded by fire so there's water for drowning in fire for burning. He was out there getting the news. Because that's what michael. Well different name dead right instead. He hung all that up one into the wrestling world and has become the absolute goat. Ladies and gentlemen michael before we started. I got to get off my chest. Got the first thing is you guys are making a big deal about carson wentz coming back in the first week you know in two thousand eleven right i Got beat up every week by every superstar and i'd never missed a live events. I don't understand why this is such a big deal. This guys come back from some foot injury after like two weeks. Okay the old on. How many did you have you missed. How many shows have you missing. Twenty four years twenty five years ago to shows twenty five. That's every week by the way. Wwe does every even during the entire corentin covered when everything else aside from this show. Wwe did not stop. Nobody else saw was unbelievable. Your work ethic is admirable but we need something like a fucking dr this dr five to twelve weeks two guys back ten day. My clothes doctor might be the greatest doctor of all time. So i also need to talk about the guys there. I thought the role on on the coltrane really. I really did a until this incident of a couple of weeks ago when the universal champion roman reigns was on your show and all i heard was all this giggling in the background. Roman reigns completely berated. Mate what i thought was my team. Wow i told. I told you this call whenever you. I brought this up to me a couple of weeks ago. Roman reigns called michael cohen. Idiot right and some people laughed. I laughed because i was being hospitable. Head of the table. You do what you gotta do. All the boys are sticking up for you there. Mike's from utica the merely wants to wait a minute. Beauty for that stigma but every other sacred of the past year. Your show those. The peanut galleries might have been off backing john. Cena backed you up. Yeah i mean. There is a lotta differences guys by the way michael good to see. Hey we're you guys mr guys. I've seen a couple of weeks. The boys in the world. We're in right now is crazy. I can't believe there was fifty one thousand people in the state incredible. wh what. what an absolute in incredible evening. You'll read a lot of stuff online about the show in good bad indifferent pat. I had a blast. And i know you did too. And there was some surprises on that night that we were shocked about Read something i line. That people thought you were mad. Because you didn't know about the aca bel air title situation when sasha sasha wasn't there a none of us did right i mean. This is a stock for everybody in that stadium and that's when wrestling sports entertainment's find man. I mean that's when it that is when it's fun when you do not have a clue what is going to happen and that happens more often than i think people think by the way i think there is a lot more of that because it's there's so much going on right in there so many pieces and so many things and whenever something just pops up on the screen there. I could say this now. You guys keep me in a dark with a lot of stuff which is good move by late. It's i think it's called good producer. Yeah i think that's called good producing by the way nobody will talk about everybody's like oh these pat do his thing it's like. I'm very thankful you guys do that. You do guide me. There are some things were michael will look over. Menial say some things you'll be like you think. And i'm like oh. Yeah yeah i do. Think i do think that actually good producing. I'm very lucky to be a part of that. But i'm kept in the dark with a lot of things which is fantastic for me. But honestly and i think this should be a real thing. You were as well on saturday night in me whenever i said to. I just put over. Sasha banks has to be so hungry to get back into that thing and then literally half a second later greg. Hamilton's on the mike go and sources not here. I mean i sound like fucking break out. I look over you and you go. You actually gave me like like they didn't know. And then the brock thing when brock came out all my dude i was so pumped so so pumped you know. You're hoping in pay per views like last month bank. When johnston came back that you have that one big surprise right for a night on top of all the incredible Talented people that work in the ring prior to these surprises happening in the you know how they bust their asses Each and every night to make what we do front an easy But to have to surprises like we got in one night both on our brand the smackdown brand was pretty damn incredible. You know you. And i pat when when roman beat scene and that was an incredible match. You gotta you gotta take your your head off the johnson. I mean listen. Guys in his mid forties He put on an absolute clinic with roman reigns. And those two guys. That amazing chemistry. John made you believe right. There were moments in that mash. I was watching. You believe that. John cena was gonna pull off. I ain't what would have been a miracle win. And then i was literally in this is i never do this. I try to enjoy the moment. I think people know this now. I literally try to enjoy every moment. That a man for what it is. And i think it's the only way you can accomplish having to do a lotta shit. Is you have to be very present when you're like you have to be. I enjoy there was a couple times during that match where i was like fucking john's gonna win this john how i feel about john right. Yeah so i. I came out a couple times. I thought it was going to be one of those moments. I thought listened to dig swerve. John maybe doesn't have to do a movie for a month right. Maybe he's going to win the title and showed his dominance. It was like okay right there. We go and then. I've watched the clip back number of times and you know be. I'd normally don't go back and watch our stuff. It's sort of a superstitious thing with me. But i went back to watch that clip a number of times and you were right in this huge moment of putting over roman reigns of how he was the greatest and nobody can stop this guy and then that echo it music ranks through the through the stadium and there was that half second of like nothing and then the place exploded. Head it was. I was jumping up and down at ringside. I mean i was like holy cow and then we take a second look because we are so far away from the entrance and they took that big wide shot of the stadium right and we had to take that second. Look because i'm like wait a minute. This proxy music for this. That practice guy is a monster. And i've been in the ring with brock leser. He's throwing me around like a rag doll in the ponytail and a tank top in the jeans and just it was an unbelievable moment. And you pat. You said it. There were two lines that you said that i completely pop for the first one was the simple brock. Listener is back the wwe because there's been so much speculation over the past six months or so whereas brock going is he gonna come back here for another run. You're going to go somewhere else. You even ticked off on the people that wanted him. And then you also said this guy is the absolute alpha male of our species. And i don't think that anybody could describe lender you hit a perfectly. He walked by in front of the table. It was absolutely incredible. It was goosebumps moment mean and then to see him in the ring with roman and think about what we think about what we have here pat whenever we get to this whether it's next week or next month or next year who the hell knows but thing about what we have here. Right you've got. This has never happened before brock. Enrollment of had some great battles in the past incredible battles. This has never happened brock. Leser coming into that is kick ass bad ass baby face You know we haven't had one of those in a long long time a guy. Just don't give a damn just wants to beat the hell out of people and everybody knows it by the in in real life by the way in in real life could beat up every human in the ufc beat up every human happy. He lives on a on a ranch. Sketch you on where he goes out and throws bales the hay around rides around a attractive when it's minus forty and enjoys. That likes that. So there you go right locked. Okay and i'd seen brock obviously on my television. He's been doing this so long. By the way he's been so dominant for so long. Just absolute monster. And i've been calling him the alpha male of our species. I think for like ten years. Because i never ever said on wwe but also like. Because i always said if the aliens came down okay this is literally a thing for a long time. Because i you know i believed for a long time and lazar ran out of town and now it's just like talking common courtesy. You say hello to the aliens that are flying around. But i said if the aliens came down they wanted to fight us. Like who do you send out there. Wasn't you said you send our alpha male of our entire species out there and say hey we need you pal and that was for a long still him walking by and you go look at the size of i said what is what is it. He is so huge and then he wants up on the stairs and air away from the ring or whatever then he was just standing there. And i was like thank god. Those didn't by the way like your smooth tip over by the way brock knows that they're not going to so interests the smoothest walk over the thing and he just what a fucking alleging. That guy is alleged pat on in our business. You know he has. he's never been. You know that that that hero that that that hero right the guy that you're hoping is your last chance to finally thank wish. The villain roman reigns is beaten. Everybody i mean. He is beaten everyone for a year and now all of a sudden brock arrives on the scene. And you're like oh my god that's by. I forgot about him. That's guy that could beat roman in roman knows it too and he looked at brockie stepped out of the ring and you know brock enrollment reverse roles now for what we saw him. A few years ago brock's prostate the hero. Now right what was the bad guy. Rome is the bad guy. And let's not forget. Paul heyman doll squirm out heyman best friends with brock listener right for years. He was his advocate. He was the main reason you know. Brock leser was successful from a media standpoint he was the mouthpiece the guy who who got brock ledgers. Message out brock. Lester kicked out of the rain. Paul amit told you about it now. Brock goes away contracts up he leaves. So what does paul haven do. He hitches himself to the roman reigns gravy trae smart by the way so now now he's in rome at the most dominant guy in sports entertainment. Now doubt his former dre train guys back. I can't be happy with paul. Paul's abandoned him brought back. You're on his own without without naming that needs him in l. haven stuck in the middle. Where's paul can be in all this and what is gonna happen right. It's amazing we got some really good like there's some really good shit that's potentially you know like setting up it's awesome and you talk about roman being dominant wherever It wrestlemainia he literally stacked edge and daniel bryan on top of each other and then pinned him and saturday night. Just clean on top of john. Cena the greatest of all time or whatever so this room brock thing now it becomes and then as you start diablo by well. He's got an actual killer air but a shepherd but then he started thinking down the line even more. It's like this shit that can happen. It's awesome. I appreciate you allow you got so many other people in play to pat ballard right and bathurst gotta stay title opportunity. So there's so much that's going on and and we cannot i. I can't leave you today without two. Thanks first thing. I need to say is about brock. Listener is scary of a human being. This man is There was thing that happened a few years ago. tonight after wrestlemainia san jose. I'll never forget it. Brock went on a rampage at ringside and he literally hit me in the face with his bare law. One time. I thought i was out cold then. He gave me that f. Five and i hit so hard that it not my shoe off which flight when flying across the ring nice. I thought i had a broken jaw and then earlier in the day when we were going through everything. Yeah i said to listen. I i can help you out here. You know. i'm i'm a little heavy. You know and i know you're supposed to shop like i'm supposed to jump to help you with the up on your shoulders and broncos. I don't think you gotta worry about how disrespected he had. Hey i hope you if you need me to hope you be funded pat when he grabbed me around it. Which the quickest was the most intense. It was one of the scariest things that i've ever been through my entire life. It was so fast and so physical and it was such a force. The do you feel like a child. You probably out there.

Pooch Punting With Pat

"The. Hello. Welcome back. To the meantime show, featuring Lenny the only NFL podcast where we don't vet our guests. But one of the host does go to the vet shout out to Dr Songa and he's caught up his shots. Now feeling really healthy feeling really great. So we are joined today, but one of those aforementioned unvetted guests he was a punter in the NFL for seven years if I did my math, right, right? Seven eight seven good ones, though. Eight one one eight. Do. You know, what happens is I always look at the seasons. And then I forget that they like bend around. So when I do my math. I always rob people of year. I get really got work on. It's always so confusing. When you talk about like the two thousand fourteen Super Bowl, but it happened in twenty fifteen that always messes with me personally. I don't think you're the only one there every time. I look on Wikipedia whenever I have a guest. I try to do the math. And I always get it wrong as well. So I always just do the guestimation. I get it wrong. Seven years eight years, it doesn't matter. Everything's okay. And I'm thankful to be. Well, you're of super positive guy. You have been you are analyst commentator, Monday night football, aspirant comedian. You've got your own podcast, which is very popular very heavy on the shenanigans, which we like around here, you're doing cool stuff now with the WW e which I wanna hear about later, and I guess I should introduce you to the guests case, you weren't tipped off by the stuff, and the fact that he actually spoke earlier, it's Pat McAfee, folks. Welcome to the show pet. Thanks for having me. It's going to be a blast. I'm normally pretty positive you catch me early. I I can get a little grumpy if I'm little angry. But yeah, life is good. Life was great. And I'm very excited to be here with you. Did you know that when I did the whole intro that Michael host is dog. Or were you confused by that? No, I heard a little bit of a heads up that there was a chance of dog was coming in. And I knew the dog brings the heat. So I'm excited that the vet took care of them got him all his shot. I can't wait to hear what he has to say. My dog talks to me as well. She's a little bit of a softer personality. I can't wait to hear your how your pet interacts with really. I can't wait. Yeah. Yeah. My dog is is an act of Barker. She and I get along. Well. Oh, actually have a question already from Linney. He wants to know your dog's name, and he'd like to see a picture. That's creepy. Lenny. We'll talk about that afterwards. Actually, you know when I came up with this show. Pat, one of the names people were like really the meantime show, featuring Lenny, it's not very original. And one of the names that people suggested for me was pooch punt because it's thing if you and I did a show together. Actually, if you've been your dog dish show together, you could call it pooch. Punt. Yeah. Yeah. I think coaching as good as a good one too because whenever your pooch punt, and you're just out there. My dog doesn't send nudes. She's my daughter, no, pixel come to Lenny. But her name is Valerie, she's a pit bull sharpei mix. The greatest thing on earth. Yeah. I really like dogs vary. Dogs have human names. Just wanna throw that out there. They sound like they would go well together. No offense. My dog did already holler at Damien Woody stock. So he's pretty shameless. He's a true dog and every sense of the word, but Valerie sounds like she might be too jacked pumped jacked for Lenny who is a big old mix. And we'll get to the dog talk later. This is kind of a weird point in the NFL season. We're coming off of the free agency. Highs drafts not firm minute. It's a little slow feel like I've kind of tied up in March madness. I was just telling Dan our producer that I just got back from South Carolina saw one of the. Most exciting college basketball games of my life. Are you as deep in March madness? I know you have financial interests right in tournament. Where are you right now? How you doing? Worked down made a we are down. I think it's incredible. The way Vegas has this ability to predict exactly what's going to happen and convinced me to put financial gains the opposite way. But I watched zero college basketball games all year. It's not something. I'd I've into normally. But I am all about the madness of March. And I watch every single game my lady, and I bet on the couch all weekend dove right into these student human athletes putting on a show in that UCF Duke game. Although it was a heart heartbreaker for the UCF Goto night that program down there. Both football and basketball is an incredible one talk. Oh, some foot stick. That's a guy you could build around literally. And I on missing the free throw on purpose for RJ Barrett. Who was the number one recruit coming out of high school to make him feel good to get the game winner. I think he's magical situation for. Legacy. A may be working on a piece about the aforementioned single Ma because I like prints now. Right. We just call them Zion. He doesn't even need a last name. He's there. But so I was on on press row. Pet acting Hella unprofessional like win because you're not supposed to like you certainly cheer obviously. But you're not really supposed to react. When the press row. Poor Allison Williams who covers college basketball for us and football. I'm sure you've seen her on science. I was screaming wailing falling on her at the end got a lot of sidelong glances from mafele. Oh, reporters, my fellow journalists. But I don't care. It was the coolest thing. And it was just so exciting to be there. I love every second of attack. Oh tak. Oh, I mean, I was telling Dan he imperfect. I he doesn't really jump. He just kind of bunny hops, because he doesn't have to right. But he's also really proportionately built like I don't think I've ever seen anyone who. Looks like that. Yeah. I don't think there's any humans. I mean, the Cambay Matombo obviously, very tall Fellay in relation. But he he's built like an athlete. He looks like he could be explosive. He has but he looks like a guy on a Fisher Price hoop out there. I mean, he's he's standing on his tippy toes, Dunkin basketball's over d one athletes. I think it's an incredible advantage to be seven foot six and a sport where height happens for sure. But let's get back to the media row people acting as if they're curing cancer or doing rocket science or like sports are supposed to have a motion. They shouldn't be looking at you sideways. The way that game ended in the way that game one. There should be a motion. I think you were doing it right to hell with everybody else on that damn row. Well, thank you. Well, I got snitched on earlier in the year win the first Zion game. I went to at Cameron. It was like you gotta see him in person, Pat like it's just an insane. Experienced in a little bit of. A current retired an athlete just retired. We'll talk about a little bit later, but he jumped out for like one of those crazy volleyball blocks with the two hands. And I went. Like it was like an involuntary utterance in somebody snitched on me down there as well. But listen, we're here to talk football mostly now really a little bit. And it shows a little different. Okay. So usually we have section at the end of the show called Dinxin dunks. Where I ask in a sort of questions. Lenny always gets one question, but this show because the football news is a little bit quiet this week. We're going to do a super sized inks and dunks a mix of football in non-football questions. I have written the mall for you, Pat or you ready. Oh, yeah. I'm excited for the Dinka dunk to get you a nice rhythm to get this often flowing into really to move to this podcast, an exquisite fashion thinking dunk all over the internet and that signed for Dink's dunks. I'm getting paid for this, right? All right. I really football. I figured that way. I could not alienate my core audience. So you are using your career with colts. Correct. That is great. Like, simple information. You could looked up on the internet before him, you know. And I know you follow the team closely of her you in on them. So I go to we talked last week with Kirk Morrison about winters losing the free agency. We didn't spend a ton of time on the colts because despite having more money than God, they didn't do a lot. So I want to ask you as a colts enthusiasts colts. Observer close close watcher of the team a local oblique you still live in the area. Or are you happy with their free agency? So that's an interesting question. I saw a lot of people on the internet on the TV's going after Chris Ballard for having all this money in not just being loosey goosey with not just throwing it around and taking shots at big time names and big time players, but Chris Ballard has been very consistent since the beginning whenever he came to town with his other girls from dick and his good good looking hair and a handsome young faith. He had the same themes thing plan. He was going to build the team. From within. He was going to build through the draft and through undrafted free agency. And he always said that he was gonna he wants to be an organization that takes care of their own. So if he wants to take care of his own young players Darius Leonard Quinton Nelson t y Hilton Chester Rogers, the bungee there's a lot of young guys that are in that organization right now, if you want to take care of them, you have to start preparing for that early with your casts, so he was very open about not being a crazy spender in the free agency. And then whenever he wasn't a crazy spender in the free agency the world kind of flipped upside down for a quick minute. And then he signed Justin Houston, which is going to help the team, mentally and everybody's back on his side. So the city of Indianapolis might have been getting a bit antsy. But as soon as you did that one signing especially with how they ended last year. I think the city of Indianapolis is expected coats fans again. And I think I think Chris Ballard is a genus though. I whatever team make the I I'm I'm a big fan of Chris bound. I like. The way he I. Mood, tat me. He's smooth cat. Listen. You're you're preaching to the choir. Literally the words I use last week where I worship at the altar of Chris valor. Dude, had probably one of the best or leap drafts. We've seen the last decade. I that's hyperbolic care. He looks like a dad in Pleasantville who seems really scr- like strict at first. But then by the end, he's like dancing and wearing color like I like, I like everything he's about a like what he's done. I was nervous. Because as I mentioned last week as soon as I praised him like ten sec. I was like I like Chris Ballard being careful in any went out and signed funches for thirteen million dollars, which I did not love it didn't love that. Iran them to go. After like a slot guy like a Cobb tape. Crowder to pair with t- wise at downfield threat. I thought that's I don't know. Just that seemed exciting for me. And I'm sure it's something the look at in the draft. Like, I would love guy like Paris Campbell or a little speedster in that offense. But. I agree with you the Houston signing. I think is probably if not the best one of the best pass rush signings of the entire free agency, given the value, and the fact that two years right because you mentioned very smartly correctly. He's going to have to pay all these young studs in a few years. So to have your premier pass rusher. Even if he's getting up in the years thirty thirty like, that's that's just smart team building. So I'm I'm still with him. I'm with you. I'm with Indianapolis. Well, I'm going to send him a text. Attack that we're all still with you know, I'm the lead. He and I are in texting relationship I'm gonna let him know file superstar for me SPN gets a little bit rattled on media row. And there's something happened is still with you. But I think he honestly I the guy hasn't made many mistakes. He's got in the GM position. He was highly sought after whenever he came to the coats and everything he does use kinda got to trust and believe it until they until they go to shit, and then then you just kinda bail out if I'm not to say that here, but I have a lot of faith in the guy. And I think the city of India does and I'm happy you do as well. What's his texting style? He sent his like, it's it's very conversational. He used proper gramatica to you know, uses one period double space after that capital. Weather's he uses commas indicate a little pause where I use to periods. Instead, he's he's all put together pretty well. Both in textually, and intellectually, and I think that is something that is is really the two recipes through two things the recipe you need for a good GM just want to add a little bit. So you know, there are a few other signings. Peer Zere who I the cornerback? I thought would was one of the more underrated Cornerbacks of last year was a former Seahawk really had a career season. They got him pretty cheap. You know, just like role players guys like Lewinsky Margus, Hong Clinton, get it all adds up. I think to a pretty decent season. Even if it wasn't as flashy as somewhat of wanted question to Pat. If all of the NFL coaches got in the funder stone sti- thunderdome style battle who would be the last two in who would win. Like, no, do whatever you want. You're going to show them that Bella check is going to survive. Somehow, you know, Valla check is gonna outsmart outwit everybody somehow, someway. Wiz. Somehow that's always gonna talk time and gonna survive it'd be one of the last two in the other guy. I'm gonna take I think it has to be. Oh, I don't know. I'm torn between time Sean McVay down. While he's got a lot of energy. He's a young guy in from what I've heard he runs routed practice. He's in the drills. I mean, he is very active coach that you would think if it was a battle royale type thing where you have to survive, you would think maybe a younger guy could do it. Frank Reich, though, he's got the most grid of any head coach. I mean, you've got to remember the biggest biggest. Yup. Two of the biggest comebacks in football history both in college and in the NFL or held by Frank Reich. So the amount of Dritan that he has is next level and that might be a little hometown cooking. But in a battle, our thirty one coaches, we're already putting Bella check at one of 'em gritted, something you're going to need liked him a lot Adam gay seems to have a lot of energy as press conferences, especially as they want. These got it seems to be an unenvious amount of energy with his eyes being wide open and ready to go maybe Adam gazes in their strictly from the energy factor. But I'm gonna. Have to go with Frank Reich and Bill Bella check will be the last to Frank because the grit Bill because it's Bella check. And that's just the way things. Go. So I stopped at your Frank Reich pick because I think it him with those little classes, and he just looks like a very chill college professor but glasses can be deceiving. Glasses can hide Fuhrer and strength. So I don't want to throw him out completely. But I mean, Dan, Quinn stone cold, Dan Quinn. Frank Reich doesn't want to hands. Dan, Quinn is a guy that you would have to fear at that bald head. I mean, it is something to think about that. Andy Andy Reid doing down about a flight of Andy Reid is to be able to handle his business. He buck through that the wall like Kuwait ban on a gif. I it every single day on the internet ready kitchens. Plenty I think he's out early. And I honestly I think they make him early. Yeah. He's too funny happy. He's a good guy. So I think he's gonna do. Well, the Browns but in a fight to the death. I think they they might go after him early. Bruce Arians has a way about him of kind of making things happen. He might survive the whole damn thing. He was retired comes back to Tampa. He might he might have a little bit more to live for. I'm I really don't know. I think it's good question. Mama stick with Frank Reich strictly because the grits. Wow. I'm really glad you spell check. 'cause actually before the Super Bowl. I was arguing with someone that Bella check would beat McVay in the octagon. And people looked at me like, I was crazy. And I said, well, like, you know, you have there's always weird rules, and you don't understand you're like, I don't understand. How this tapped out? Nobody would be able to exploit those rules quicker than deli. Check like all like all hands. Anything goes battle situation. My money is on Bill bell check every time. Even though he's in his nineties or whatever. Going. Hey, don't move out that old guy up in the box two and helps them out don't rule out that guy gonna help him. And then in the fight. I mean, that's something that needs to be taking seriously because whenever there situational advantages to be had and you got a guy up in the crow's nest. There's got a big old brain with you. I mean, that's gonna help Allah checkout. Yeah. I feel like you would take like he would like I dunno grind tooth into a shave or something just figure out some sort of shocking advantage. Using kitchens would go out. I. Yeah. To nice nice. I couldn't even guess. Freddie kitchens. I think is going out early strictly because he's a good guy. Nice guy, funny guy, and he's younger. So I think they just kinda tag team into him into oblivion, but I like FREDDY I like what he's about to do in Cleveland, but in its battle out thing, I think he's out early in my eyes. I think he's out or matinee. Okay. Here's a guy started club. Dub got a lot of energy team loves them up there. He he's he's got a little wrinkle in the playbook every single week. He likes to do. Maybe he's a guy that can maybe scheme and strategize his way to the final two. I like the way he operates as well. Now, I think about it. He might be. Yeah. He might feel like him in read could team up, you know, with their allegiance actually loves it assault of allegiance in tag teams. Because I feel like what would happen is in this battle royale is what would actually happens in the NFL, which is Bill Belichick would form an alliance with his coaching tree. And then at the last second killed them. All. Well, I think that is what happens if you look at his coaching. I mean, there's there's much excess outside of their and it's because the New England way is the New England for reason it's tough installed other places map Patricia with that Ticonderoga number two pencil to that the weapon that's going to be in there. Ship already. Pencil to the do. Don't you see Bella check leg you remember kring from the ninja turtles the crying. That's kind of a weird reference. But I feel like Hedy have Patricia as bodyman actually doing the physical labor in this fight? And then at the end he would use the pencil and then like stab Patricia in the eye. Okay. Well, I think we're in agreement at least about him getting there. Although I'm not really with you on right? Hey, I want to ask you my third question is topical. So the owners meetings are going on and very hot topic. I think it's gonna get punt it feel about by the way punted being like a negative verb in general parlance. Like when you kick something down the road. You're putting on it. How do you feel about that? Does it make you feel bad strategic turnover on the wording, a pun is a strategic turnover strategic delay? That's all it is big grain stuff. I it's all about how you word. It look at it. Obviously, you you anything. A negative or a positive punting just as smart decision and deciding and figuring out something later. Yeah. I don't I don't take any offense to that. I like the stat strategic thought we'll so you know, they're a punt on this. But a home the hat topic down there right now ease replay review -able calls. The Peyton stuff will. So there's a couple of proposals were going on Tuesday, by the way. So this could be there could be some movement on this. I think it's going to continue to be sort of a matter of debate. One proposal was to add passing Fearance to list of reviewable plays. The second would also head roughing the passer and defenceless hits. Sean Payton has also who obviously has a bit of a dog in this fight being cheated out of that championship has said he wants the rest to be full time. I said that has to change is too hard. There's too much stay for someone who's a teacher at a school. He's florist an attorney didn't know any of the rest were florist. But now, I wanna know anyways. I wanted to ask you how do you feel about those expansions for replay do and how do you feel about? Are you like a pro replay guy or an anti replay guy, bro, replay guy bigtime blade guy. If everybody at home something I don't know why the rest who are put in a terrible position with the modern technology. Nobody's point for the ref. Nobody they have no fans. Everybody's waiting for them to mess up. And then get shown that they messed up by the technology that we have I am very much appro replay person. I think every single call should be replaceable to be on it, even if it's a whole if the bad older good old, it should be replaceable. They get it wrong. They lose it. If they get it. Right. They keep. A replay or that challenge in my head. That's how it goes. Because think about the Green Bay Packers. Those clay Matthews roughing the passer calls that were kind of ES those change their entire season as well. Yeah. Not only the New Orleans on holding penalty completely on the offense completely stalls. Offensive drive. I think there, Sean Payton's, right? There is a lot at risk. There's a lot of money on the line. There's a lot of careers in families. And now that sports gambling becoming a legal thing. There's a lot of billions and billions of dollars on the line everywhere. The restaurant a terrible spot. Nobody likes the floors to make the mistake. They love his peonies. They don't love it. Making a mistake. We might as well allowed the opportunity to get it. Right. Keep it moving, and it's more money for the NFL. Anyways. A replay challenge is another way to sell advertisements. I don't understand it. I know there's the old the old traditional folks like doesn't need it. We do fall without replay. Yeah. But we can make game a little bit better. We can make the. Game a little bit better for every and more fair for everybody involved in. I think that's the right thing to do. I don't know if it'll ever get there. I hope so at some point. I like that. You're traditionalist is souther. You know, it's an old boys. The bunch of billionaires out there to bunch of billionaire if I could do a southern accent? My traditional parody voice would also be southern instead it's more like order like repairs. That's also my Andrew luck voice. So but anyways, L'Opinion, I'm with you. I'm with you so much like I just feel like the pen box boxes already open when the fans at home can see it. You can't go back in time on the field. Right. Because we if we're able to see these things you can't undo that. Like, you can't be like, well, let's just not show stuff to fans anymore. Like, you can't turn back the clock. Now, the concern people has that this is going to drag games on and my feeling on. That is just find a way to make them really quick. Because if it's an obvious mistake, we see it really quickly not one of those things where you know, you look at rings of three hundred different angles, and it could still be interpreted thousand different ways because those whatever those will go different ways, but get the obvious calls. Right. You know, like the saints won. For example, anyone saw what happened actually? Realtime. But Meena Meena. You are scratching me where I it's with that. I got the call college football game. And I got the NFL game this past year. I'll I I'm not sure ever gets called a game again. But the first call that want to replay the college football game. This ref was staring at about a five by five and five inch by five inch little screen to see the report, we're at Gerry world. The Jumbotron at Gerry world is literally sixty yards long avenue your grown by twenty yard in its four K the entire thing there. So in the replay rate above the rest on a hundred yard four K screen and this dummies looking at a little tiny computer with a little earpiece in Collin to New York or wherever it is in my eyes. They should be able to look at the Jumbotron correct corrector on the go having earpiece in with maybe somebody watching the replays in a booth somewhere just the directly call into them like Florence. Yeah. You messed it. Up look at the replay. Let's fix it. Let's keep it moving almost like the af has been doing the AFL has been doing. I think there's a way to expedite the entire process. You couldn't be more right with that whole thing when you mentioned scratching you were just thinking like behind the ears is that okay? Like, that's Lenny favorite place to be behind the years. My dutch. Likes to be my dog. But rub the hip hip, the bu-. Yes. My dog likes that too. Yeah. Like when he's facing this actually, I could describe it sound kind of weird question for. Rab Glenn dog. Doggystyle petting over here. Interesting. Yeah. Yeah. Gotcha. Petting betting. But but but is where by Douglas scratch, so. Yeah. Are right now. No, she's at home in my office. I I actually kinda miss her right now to be honest. I'll get pictures from my lady throughout the day of her just like asking me when I'm gonna come home with like a cute little caption on it. It's really it really comes at the heartstrings, really Dr. Do you win? I'm going to get back to the last question. I swear. But when you're flying home from a trip, do you ever scroll through albums that are just pictures of your dog? So is that is that weird? No, don't don't my way would in my lady does. But it's not my I don't scroll through albums of just my dog. But I do get pictures of my dog sense to be on a regular basis. So I I think the difference between you, and is you go to the on demand section mine is lives. But you know, what? I mean, you go back. Yeah. The same photos Viner actively being updated. So yes, I think it's kind of thing. Yeah. I'm reliving my dogs greatest hits basically. And I have some videos to like I'm revealing a little bit too much. So gronk 'cause he coming back. Are you buying this is it that was that's what I was the actual question. Well, I mean Rosenhaus coming out Rosenhaus is done incredible job, by the way with all of his clients. Getting them a lot of money and a lot of media in all being guy who has a sportscenter commercial and a guy that stores booth headset in looking cool. I don't know how you do that classic agent being an agent. I'm not sure this is it for drunk hausky. I think he he might get the itchy just wants to hang out for a while, which I completely respect and understand greatest tight end of all time whenever you was playing. I don't know. I think the the world is a better place when gronkowski's playing football. But who knows what he's going to get into next. Maybe he'll find a Brinks truck in movie somewheres, and that will take up his time. I I don't know. I think there's a chance he comes back and plays. But I also think there's a chance that he's about the kid a scratch off massively and some other business and profession, and I think he might just ride off into the sunset come back as a hero in New England. Every once in awhile wave to the crowd didn't fit in. Craft. We'd up there at China or get and then just just have a good time for the whole thing. A lot of people sort of speculated WB. I mean, he didn't he remember one of his friends Mo-jo right is in WB in. I think it was like two years ago that he did wrestlemania or something or w raw, but you know, after the civil Pat, I ran gronk. I remember waiting for him in the locker room, and he could barely walk like one of his legs was swollen the size of it was bigger than my torso. I'm looking at my trying to it's like if me, and Lenny hugged, maybe that would be one of his legs. He is in so much pain all the time and people act like WBZ just acting like a very physical. You know? So I kind of doubt that. That said it's really like, especially a guy like loves the game so much lows the team aspect like just loves everything about it. It can be really hard. When you're a few months out. You really miss it from what I've heard. So I guess I wouldn't be surprised if he comes back, and I don't know it's weird by the way over the last day or so as this news has come out watching the debate over whether he's hoping for spout hall of fame. Like, robin. Cousy is degrees person to ever play the position. I don't like that doesn't seem particularly debatable to me. Yeah. I'm on your side year. I don't think so either I think anybody saying that it isn't as just trying to be a troll and get some quick which has been people love doing. I just I think whenever Cousy was on the field. He was magical, and the reason why he was so banged up because he was such a big target. I mean, he took a lot of hits his body is also not supposed to do the things did he had the ability to block your best defensive end. And he also had the ability to outrun your safety or linebacker while having the greatest hands on the field. I mean, he was put together in a way to being a dawn on the field. But with that can come a lot of negativity on the backside for his body. And I honestly believe that he was about done a year ago. And Phil Tom Brady came off the camel and got him back into it for another run. They get a Super Bowl. I think he's done. But but just like Rosenhaus said if there's a big moment, and they need a tight end in gronkowski can compete clean. I think not from steroids. But I'm talking about street drugs. I. There is a chance that he definitely gets back into the game at some point. But I think you'll take at least a year off and WWE that is a grueling schedule for professional record. So I don't think you'll be a full-time sports entertainment guy. But I think there's definitely opportunities to make appearances and make some money with the WWE because he is a sports entertainer. He's a hilarious human if he does come back for the playoffs or whatever. I just hope he does it in a really cool way. Like, they lower him from the ceiling or something or you know, like peers in a cloud of smoke like very theatrical because we know that the patriots love fun and the ad Trix. Okay. Last question before the mail bag. Who's going to be the worst team in the NFL next year? Your positive guys. So I feel like this is a hard one for you. It is. I just ran through every division my head real quick. And for some where easing for some reason. I'm thinking there is a cardinals. Even though one of my best friends is their starting center strictly because new head coach the quarterback, though, Leded all this posts off the internet. Currently the bid situation Cuyler Murray Murray's gonna come at maybe Keiler is another Baker Mayfield. And it's just a complete stud. But for me, I think there is a car does have a lot of question marks to figure out maybe the Miami Dolphins as well. Because they're in the patriots division or by knows that. But also just because the Miami Dolphins have had a history of being rough here for a while. No fence to your dog rough. But I think I think the card I'm the dolphin dolph. I'm gonna go with the dolphins. Well, so listen, I get a lot of love to the dolphins off season on this podcast because I am team fish tank. I want. Embrace the suck is where basically on that with these things. Like, if you're a bad team be bad team own that you're bad team. Get the dress get those draft picks get the cap space. Get ready to go after two or you know. Lawrence. If it comes to that. But we've got the cardinals that does make me a little the first of all then they went out and got his Patrick I think's gonna mess around and win a few games in an annoying. Hold on hold on. Sorry. I just remembered that they signed fits Bajic. I have to take that back from -pletely not picking against it's magic. Let's go with the cardinals. It's going to be a rebuild year for them with old kings varies. I I'm sticking with the cardinals. Even though I have a lot of friends over there. I think in a couple of years are going to be gracious next year. I'm sorry. I had to get that out because I don't want to go against magic never speaker trees, I'm with I think Carlier in its early seems like Karl Keiler right now, I'm a huge fan doesn't allow us to throw to down there. So could be some growing pains. But you know, maybe if they trade Rosen, they get a pick. They get a wide receiver thinking beyond the ups. But I think there's Ona's like a decent a decent pick. All right before we get to the remaining questions as always we are going to take a few questions from listeners, if you leave them in the I tunes reviews and the review is positive and my mom likes it. We will answer them. So let's hear question question. Lenny for your thoughts. I want to I want you to answer this one to mix cheese sticks. I think that's his name asks have you done? Doggy DNA for Lenny. Of course. I have I've done it twice. And I got two different results. Lenny's a mutt. The first test came back and said, I think the wisdom canine or something I forget the name of the sponsor me wherever you are. I think the first one came back, and it was outrageous. It said Lenny was a French bulldog pomeranian mix then the second one felt a little bit more accurate. It said Jack Russell terrier to wa wa also pomeranian. So I don't really know what to believe. And I'm kind of surprised this company didn't cross reference results. Pat, have you ever done this fear dog? I am not. But your dog sounds like an interesting. I adopt don't shop. I love that. You have a mutt. I do as well. I've just I've just always done with what my lady told me that. She's a sharpei pit bull mix. I didn't even know these tests exist, a big hustle to me. But I mean, who am I talking about it? But I just assumed with my lady says is true. You know, it does sound like a hustle, but you don't send a picture of the dog. So because then I'll start a business where you descend picture in. And they're like, yeah. I definitely tested the DNA. Have you ever done the human one the human DNA twenty three hundred? Oh, yeah. I did that in I grew up in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Obviously an Irish person factored maxi's my name. I grew up around all at talion. Okay. So all of my friends are talion. I basically grew up in. I mean it felt like I was in Italy. So I always mocked the Italians for everything, you know, I have great food beautiful culture organized crime a lot of things under their belt, and I really my best friend's talian. And then I did that twenty three a meeting. I spent a Cup of soon as I woke up, and I got back that I'm point nine percent of talian, and that was point a while day a lot of people in policy, and I felt like. So I'm half Korean by the way, and that came came back fully, Afghan almost exactly. I've been told my whole life. I was half German. But then so we had like Mormon relatives somewhere did like a whole gene just kind of their jam. They do these really intense genealogies, and then I did this test and my brother did too and we both got British Irish so family lives apparently. So we're what is the Irish like not like, what do you if we're countrymen? What is that? You just kind of say like Wanchai believe is like two years in Ireland. For me. I am half Irish half German. I thought but then the point oh nine percent valium plopped in there to change my tire life Heizo Ranko pies on that's it. Frank O M B asks would you quit your day job to become GM of your favorite teams? Biggest rival Panama of the Seattle Seahawks show at would've been the Niners. Now, it's kinda the Rams I'm gonna know because would be terrible GM. But if you could be of any team we choose right now. I would want to come into a team like the dolphins where the expectations are low as the amount of on the you just had their terrible GM is Derek thick about. Yeah. You definitely think that I mean growing up in Pittsburgh. It was supposed I was supposed to be a Pittsburgh Steeler. And everybody's is my parents were diehard Steelers fans they didn't draft coats it. So my dad said that they could have the feelers could have bought my love and bought his son. And instead the coach did so ship fan hood Indianapolis for a year, and I for eight years, and I think that thing with the GM I think definitely take that kid no matter who's offering a general manager job. There's only thirty two of 'em. They pay very well when you get to play real life fantasy football. I mean, you out there in the pool that trigger me. I you do your thing. And you might be better than a lot of the currency. Thank you. Okay. All right. Maybe I would. Right. I think it would do good. Yeah. I think I would like New York like after this cattleman stuff all all come guys except in advance R J K eight nine seven six somebody number ones. I'm like, I really hope it's not a password or phone number. Where does Matt Stafford phone your power rankings who that's actually kinda complicated? I'm just gonna throw it a random number and say fourteen. Put a middle of the pack. I think he's stopped in quarterback. You think I get off man when you start like actually putting them together. Because then you ask questions like math staffer Baker Mayfield. I prefer Baker Mayfield. Like some of these young guys, obviously Mahomes near the topic. There's it's tough. I would say he's in the ten to solidly in the ten to fifteen range for me. But you know, he it's been tough tough up there in Detroit. I got drafted in class. He got sixty million guaranteed. I got twenty five thousand guaranteed. I am a big. Oh, the old pre money Kevin d seven one three asks is adn and from serial guilty. You listen to Syria. 'cause I. I heard I heard the case I saw the case against them on the net. Flicks. I didn't. I heard it's pretty good. Okay. I'm gonna say, yes. Just based on the limited information. I've heard about it anaesthesia to six as last question win. Will my giants be better again? So poor honest as you asked this question in January. Yes, I'm a little bit behind the question. Sorry. She's obviously been through a lot since then I'll give it for years. How about you? What has happened there? I think there might have been a lot of tension in that locker room. Obviously the little Wayne interview with LBJ right before a game where he called everything out is in great. Maybe the giants in the cardinals are my team competing for who's gonna have the worst season. But I think in the next couple years one Barclays gonna put that team all the way on his back though, bingo for the giants. I hope they do. Well, I drink wine and he lied Manning's condo over their New Jersey. I'm a big fan of the manning family. I hope he finished his career on a high note. But I think it's gonna take a couple of years, and I think on Barclays the truth though. Yeah, I agree. If it turns out that saquon Barkley play quarterback. But then I agree with you. Okay. By the way, guys check out the right time with Bomani Jones and apple podcast wherever you get your podcast yesterday. Voicemail segment on HBO documentary. The inventor about Elizabeth homes have seen that yet. But I want to today both talking to Julie Commissioner informer former NBA all star Sharieff Abderrahim about the changing path from preps to pros great podcasts. Definitely check that out. Also, check out the podcast of our guest today. Pat McAfee, it's the pet McFee show. He doesn't really need you 'cause he's already really Heddle popular. But you should check it out anyways and power back to our questions for you. Now. All right. And this is the wrestling one that I promised you ready. There's this show two point. Oh, we had to revamp. Sorry. No. It's okay. I want go. And but I would not wanna listen. If I were you too much of me is too much of me. You know, it's it's really great for long car. Right. It's a very long podcast, and has that kind of lebatardshow feel because I know a lot of guys like that show, and it's just a bunch of friends, yuck. In it up. And you get to hang out with them for a while. And it's really fun. So I'm like the mortgage wrestling question, Pat, tell me what you're doing for me. It's XT, right. Yeah. I'm gonna next e pre show. So I'm just on like a panel that happens before the pay per views for tea, which is the same as any NFL pre shows that happen on a panel to chat about the upcoming matches and things like that. They very dumb things into a microphone while wearing a suit. It's an interesting George suit. Normally I've Jordan on with it. And then I create content on the internet. Him. So it's right now, it's just an agreement to make contents together. And who knows what will happen in the future. Always second wear shorts suit. So little known fact about me, I don't think I've ever gone into this. I actually did watch wrestling growing up because I had the misfortune of having an older brother who controlled all forms of content in the household. A lot of time spent sitting behind him on a computer watching him play halo and he loved wrestling. So here's the revelation. I Pat we've never met I have long dark hair, and I've always had long dark hair, which means that when my brother wanted to play wrestling growing up being nineties kids, I always had to play the part of the undertaker. So I know many of his moves movement general demeanor. I've got it all on lockdown in some part of my brain. I love that. I love everything about that. You're the debt, man. I like little kunas though. Maybe walk a little flow, the lightning hit lights are out lights are on. That's a legendary human to be of. I'm very impressed with that decision of you to be the undertaker. That's the that's the guy of of all the guys when it comes through the wrestling business. Only definitely was not my decision. Into it. Yeah. Well, older brother stuff older, brother stuff. I used to watch. I used to watch. I never I used to watch rather play. I used to watch my brother play video games as well. I suck at them. My older brother those really good. I haven't played video games. My brother beat me and mad when I was like twelve the bad night. It was a bad night. Maccabi house. I woke up my parents of anger. I was supposed to win. I lost haven't played again. But I spent many night watching my brother play video games as well. I can feel you're paying me. I could feel you're paying I got about ten minutes for every two hours of him on the computer, which was a a really unfair ratio in retrospect explains why about of the games my question for you is so pushing gronk aside which current NFL player. Do you think would be the best pro wrestler? I like I like Baker Mayfield swag a lot. I like his everything that Baker may feel represent Sao. He's he's confident borderline cocky plays. Hard works. Hard has a lot of fun. I think he would be good on the microphone you travel. Tell C also another. I mean, don't wanna stay. That's another gronk, but Travis Kelsey is a guy that would be great. I think in sports entertainment. He also loves fashion. So I'd be impressed by his gimmick. What he would wear to the ring. I think those tight ends and BN's or a good Dan good build of human to get in there. But personality is very important. I think that's kind of gets forgotten the whole conversation. And I think Baker Mayfield is a guy that could cut from pretty well he had to and output. A combination of Baker Mayfield Travis county. That's good answer. I had another Brown in mind. And it's DeAnne. I was thinking miles. It would be really good. 'cause obviously he's like crazy crazy crazy. But he also has a lot of really weird interests or not weird, but cool interests like he's really into dinosaurs in science, and I feel like he could turn those into a cool character like the archaeologist or something like that. I think little kids above them. I think that's for sure I think maybe children would be a big fan of that operation. I think I think somebody should be thought about maybe as Earl Thomas to guy whip off a coach, that's very sports entertainment move. I think that is something to think about that was a real like pro wrestling style. Earl Thomas, by the way, as fan is one of marginally my favorite Seahawk of all time and can easily safety from the eighties is number to Earl Thomas is solidly number three. Most talented football player. I think I've ever seen on that team. It's just amazing. They're coming back Baltimore's playing Seattle. So that we don't do guys if you're listening don't boom unless he flips you off again, then you can do him next question. So you're. Hey own on. He did not. He did not flip off the Seahawks faithful he flipped off one particular Pearl. Yeah. And Pete Carroll. He said Pete Carroll was the target of that middle finger that bird just like the ESPN building was the target of that bird this morning p terra was the target. Faithful. That should be remembered your hundred percent, right. And he's just the lead to you. Don't have the Steiner St. without Thomas. You don't have the defense without Thomas. You know that scheme Thomas, whatever is responsible for a lot of my personal happiness. Maybe a little bit too much over the last few years. Okay. Next question's about you being from Pittsburgh because I did not know that. And so I'm assuming you grew up as a Steelers fan, right? Players more. So than teams I my dad used to throw the remote and live or die with the black and gold on Sundays. So I stuck away from the fan hood of team. And and what the players, but whenever the Steelers one life in Pittsburgh was much much much better. So I enjoyed watching them when. Well, I wanna ask you about Steelers. Obviously, we're not to relitigate any of the drama. But by the way, did you see Jews post about how much he loved then that? Is like that. He's ready to get paid. Such a pander. And then James Connor also tag that thing the new bell and Brown. I'll be excited to see Big Ben can do the same things did with ABM lead with those do. Well, yes. And that kind of brings me my ex question, which is do you think the Browns the Steelers or the ravens sorry Stati should be the favorite to win that division next year? I think after the Brown strictly because of the amount of firepower that they brought in and how well they did at the end of last year. I mean when Baker finally got on the field shadowed you Jack making terrible decisions. He was electric out there. And I think that brought a revamp energy to the city of Cleveland into the dog pound, Freddie, kitchen seems to get along with Baker very, well, which is huge in the modern NFL world and the firepower. They've brought him is incredible the defensive stack. I like the Browns a lot. But Mike Tomlin Steelers will always find a way to be good. The Baltimore Ravens say they're going to. The game of football and ticket old school. They're gonna be a running team. I'll be excited to see. If the Mark Jackson can hold up. It's a rough. It's a rough week the NFL I think that offense could be fun to watch. But it has to be the Browns the vision to lose which nobody in a million years. Whatever gets anybody would be saying just what three hundred seventy days ago. It's amazing. How quickly quarterback can just change everything for team. You know, it's like I can actually make a case for all three of these. I think it's around first of all I agree with you. We agreeing a lot by the way on this podcast, which I like the ravens good brains. Yes, good brains. The ravens dig lose some different defensive talent. But I like the Ingraham who just feels marking feels like you should have been on the ravens all along one of those guys. Obviously just said how I feel about real Thomas the Steelers I think like there's probably a lot of concerns about the offense. I actually think offense is they're not going to be as good as with triple. They'll be fine. I'm still worried about that defense spine the defense to softness in the middle. Just don't believe they've fixed the problems they signed Mark Barron's like, okay? So I on paper the Browns are very clearly to me the best team in this division. But there's a big difference between paper and on the field as as we know in the old NFL. Next question's a very serious one. Would you pay thousand dollars to have an hour long conversation with your dog? Yes. One thousand percent, I say ten thousand dollars again, our really escalating the dollar figure to see where you were going gonna stop fifteen thousand. Yeah. I mean, I I've been very poor purchases in my life. I bought a wrestling ring it like three AM whenever I was younger. And I still have it in my barn. It never gets used. I mean, if I could talk to Valerie, I mean, I'm Dr Dube it'll all of a sudden. Yeah. Fifteen grand be Dr Dolittle for sure. Okay. So many thoughts about this. First of all, I'm aware that this is the whitest conversation. That's ever happened on this podcast. And y'all y'all I know it is. But I would my my dollar figure would go very very high, obviously. But I'm also concerned because part of the reason I love my dog so much is like the unconditional love he gives me what if your dog was like, I don't know her voices doing my dog voice pant. No, that's terrible. I'm trying to do like a girl dog, boys. But forget it. I'm not going to do it. But what if she was like, hey, I actually don't like it when you scratch my. But I actually don't like like the food you give me and all these years you've thought that I love everything I actually don't. And I'm glad now that I have a chance to air out. Some of these takes. Conversation with. I mean, we're gonna have a civilized conversation. She says she doesn't like it. I'm gonna tell you should have been Wagoner damn Taylor. Every time did it. You're sending weird weird sign. Valerie. Then how about that? I'm not scared to have a real conversation if she wants to go that way. But I do believe she likes to good. But rub. What questions we're it's been more time on this question. What questions would you ask your dog? Like, would you west or for her preferences? Her just so that you could have you know, she could have the best life going forward. What's her favorite things? Where would you want her thoughts on life in the world and dogs view? I think I'm gonna stay away from the world views of I don't wanna get into dramatic. You know, I just wanna talk to her about, you know, like Spence 'cause my lady brought her with into the relationship. Use it. I would be looking for ammo, you know, with valley Tomlin better has your life becomes since. I have joined it. I would like to hear your answer. So I can hold this over your mother's head later. I would also obvious and hours a long time. But I would have notebook out. I wanna know what her favorite food is what she likes what she doesn't like. So we can make your life fantastic. Maybe she has a little bit of an ale. Like what's going on? How do we fix it? Let's make sure she's under percent. But other than that. I just I kinda wanna get to notable bit more. You know, like little DeAnne just scratch, you know, like stretching service here. What's Bigalow deeper? Find out what we got. I also this worry that like Lenny has problematic. Opinions. I don't know. What? What if he's like? Hey, mom. I actually I've been wearing the Seahawks collar for eight years, and I freaking hated and actually this whole time. I love the Cowboys that would break my heart break it. L? But you gotta respect Lenny's. Opinions. You know, he's gotta know that sometimes you and your friends aren't going to agree on everything you just gotta learn to get along. And that's the way it is. Maybe that conversation afterwards at the end of that thing whenever the time's about up. You let that dog know that like, hey, whatever you go back to talk. And guess what? It's my job let you outside the poop so much. You wanna poop over yourself? What's go? Let's come to an agreement. You gotta remember that in this situation. You are the alpha. That's what you have to remember. Yeah. That is something you learn with the dog. You gotta be the alpha the head of the pack, and I think that that they use stock trainers use all the head of the pack. I am the head of no pack. I am firmly in the back of every pack that I'm including this show. I'm bringing up the rear literally. All right. Let's. Yup. You're right now, you're in the back of the pack Lenny's in the front. I'm in the middle of this this pack. Predict are we pack. Okay. Cool. I like that. The first four picks of the NFL draft. And then if you're right, you can have this sound, and then you can play it. And if you're wrong, nobody will remember. Let's go with Tyler Murray. Number one. Number two defense event from somewhere number three. Another defensive player number for a wide receiver, really. That's what employer. Okay. I couldn't even tell you. I don't I don't pay attention enough to say you why? 'cause when you're player draft day means that one of your friends is on teams probably losing his job. So. I never really got into the drafting now that I'm in the media world. I'd probably should I enjoy the combine I enjoy watching the dudes run around in tights and doing credible athletic feats. I enjoyed that. Especially because it's in Indianapolis, it brings a lot of great attention to our city. But when it comes to draft things, I've no clue what's going to happen. And I just kinda sit watching enjoy the ride and hope that the colts get a good pick. And kinda see how we get going. We the last colts drastic. Did you have any idea? How good it would be. No, they drafted quit Nelson. And then Chris valid came out and didn't interviews like this guy's a mall, or this guy's everything you need. I was like all right. If Chris coming out like this for first round 'cause a guard in the first round is a a very aggressive pick, especially for team that was rebuilding. And he turned out to be hundred percent, right. So I I don't think anybody could have known that. There is going to be with Leonard was I don't think anybody couldn't own Quinton Nelson was going to be a I pro-, but you kinda go sit hope because you never know how anybody's gonna play once they get money. Once they get into a new system, the NFL is such a different world and college football. It's all crap shoot. I mean, there's obvious situations where somebody's gonna succeed. But you know, I've seen a lot of people fail that have come into the NFL. And I just hope everybody does. Well, everybody gets rich and updraft as something that everybody can remember in a positive manner sort of negative. That's so nice. I will be cursing a lot and in blasting teams on draft day unlike positive Pat over here, but I'll give my first four picks. I'm gonna go Cuyler. And by the way, listeners we're going to do a mock later, we got a whole draft show Nashville a lot of draft con content coming down the pike right now. I'm going to go Kyla Murray. One Nick Bosa to Quin Williams three Josh Allen desk himself using Josh Allen for the raiders last question is always Pat comes from Lenny. You ready for this? I mean, I was ready to pay fifteen thousand dollars to my dog. Your dog. Let's go. All right as always honor his request by reading it in his voice. Of natty might who hurt you. Greg. That dog boys is badge. I it sounds like these acne what he's. Why he's French pomeranian or whatever I heard for his hurt his DNA? I mean, I thought it'd be maybe a little French accent French bulldog, or whatever it is. Actually, he's from. He was adapted from Alabama came to New York like they do a supply demand thing. Right. And sometimes I wonder if he thinks in southern accent what Bama. Probably sounds like the old traditional guys that I reference earlier by. But let me thanks for that question. I am a big fan of natural light, especially new drink natter days, which is a delight delightfully. Refreshing strawberry, lemonade beer that is not supposed to replace the irreplaceable, natural light. But it is a tag team partner to it in the summer days. I went to West Virginia, university, natural light, beer campus. West Virginia university is used to be able to get a nice twenty four pack for like six bucks or nine bucks or something like that. And that's really where the love fest began is in college. And to be honest whenever one of those natural lights hits my dollars. Just makes me feel better. And the natter as drinks is going to be the drink of the summer. So it's a good thing. It's a good drink to be part of. It's good drink to be a fan of and Lenny if your mom ever stinks that into your dog bowl. I think you'll be licking your little bit less than you'll be feeling a lot better. I think it'd be good. I have a friend who. I caught feeding Lenny beer, and I got really upset about it. Once I look that's Lenny's take, by the way, the anti. It's not mine. I am of the people. I'm a woman or a populist when it comes to beer, in fact, two of my takes that are most controversial end here. One is. Bud Light is pretty good. Pretty good taste gray with food. Okay. Nothing better when I'm eating wings than a cool. Refreshing, Bud Light get Bud Light. If you if you wanna sponsor. That you will buy dog on the internet. Really judge me came after me and my second. I key my second which. Hey, you want to be friends with those IP people anyways, there is a actual link that serial killers enjoy so you should not worry about that. At all. That's how you guys gotta figure out if adn and did it look into whether or not he drank IPA's path. Yeah. My other take that. Did not go over well on the internet. There are too many beers. Like when I go to a restaurant, and I look at menu. I can't even read it. It's like looking at like a math equation can goodwill hunting when he's like the chalkboard. That's what a beer menu. Looks too many beers. Cut down on the number of years. It became to read it to make they start making those things for the end home breweries, and then everybody got their brewery expert in the IP as and the small Bruce became like the thing with the hipsters so everybody Vom making chocolate in urine and vanilla. And all. Yeah. I just I can't do it. I'm too basic of a human. I'm too. I'm too basic of a pallet. I just drink bub life and natural light and people call me, basic and simple. And I think that's a pretty accurate assessment. I can't do your tastes like drink a forest whenever I'm just trying to have a nice little buzz for five hundred dollars. Would you drink a home? Brewed beer made with urine called I t a. Did you just make that or is that actual did use create that when you said you're in? I thought of it. I did a little word play very me. No. That was very that was good. Thank you. Thanks. I appreciate it. I smiled when you, you know, they said it, you know. Yeah. Like, you knew it was good. If I went how what am I? Current eight. And it's euro someone, you know, now, I'm rich now if you would have gotten. But now, I can't do that. Now, it's just an old different animal. You get me in college though, I'll probably shocked on that. I p for sure you're in luck. That's what I would have said, you're. What? It's the number one beer a right? They use them much for coming on Lenny appreciates it. He has some pictures. He like you to pass. Valerie, no pressure after the show. We can talk about it. Hope you guys come back. Bring her send photos. He says. Tell you straight up is not interested in the dog doesn't like natural light. So keep the picture to or self. I hope they meet one day values street dogs. Lemme seems like a little bit of hoity toity yuppie dog neither here nor there. I think they could get along natural light is where vow draws the line mean. I can't thank you enough for having me on here. You are hilarious knowledgeable, and I'm so thankful. Cheers. And have an incredible day.

Colts talk with Jim Ayello (@jimayello). Trump Pushes for Big Ten Football. Kamara Holdout.

"Welcome in a one and done radio wherever you are. However, you are listening whether it's on I tunes, soundcloud spotify, Potter Matic I heart radio tune in Stitcher Pandora. Corn Pod, Bean Google playlist, Amazon, music, or audible Thanks for making one and done radio a part of your debt. Lots of goes on. It's episode I do have an interview. The happens early in the episode with Jim, a yellow colts inside writer for the Indy Star and definitely loving and being colts fan. So that was fun to do. Then talk about four big ten how the president of the big ten of the United States Donald Trump. Called, and talk to Kevin Warren about trying to. What it needs to do to season going. Men Finally. I am the episode talking about Alva- Kamara. Holding, out. and. where he could go. All that on the show. Let's go. All. Right. I'm joined now by Jim. A yellow colts insider for the Indy Star, you follow Jim on twitter at Jim Ilo Jim one. Thank you for taking your time to talk to me on one done radio. Join your so. Kind of Nash I've asked this for quite a few reports from different teams. What has this training camp been like for you with everything going on with Kovin Yeah. It's been wildly different than it was in years. Past is just it's it's just unfortunately the access that was good. A shot of what the NFL or the colts are trying to do I mean culture trying to get as much as we can but there's not really you can't really replace just walking up to a player after practice their locker room chatted with between one on one you know whatever comes to comes to mind you can ask him and sometimes it's good stories come out of that and we don't really have access right now we're just getting zoom calls most of the time you can't get some zoo rb gets gold Boehner, like one on one interviews but really right now that's been the biggest difference is that you just you just don't have that kind of impromptu. Got About this, let me talk to you about that springs from it I. Really you know. I. Love that part of my job and it kind of stinks that we don't have it and then yeah, the difference right now is that were tested every day you anticipate Cova dailies last this last week tested every day so that we can have access to to the players of Lisa practice of they move inside. That's the kind of the weird thing right now is you don't need to be tested at the privacy outside it's raining in a practice the inside you gotta be tested. It's all Australians don't like eighteen other things to keep in your head while you're trying to cover the team. The thing with his showed up your nose. So it's one I've I've I understand is that are two different nasal test one showed up and it's like a brains twelve people that and the other ones where they kind of just do what we're doing is they kind of just a it's just in both nostrils, but it's not all the way up they just want us. A swivelled around there for about ten seconds on each nostrils it's quick and painless. I just the other day and I had the brain can the brain one in boy is she goes Oh, it's not gonna be painful initially pulled on my nose make light to. That sounds awful. You'll the other day I was I was thinking about that because. This is a weird story. Know I'm telling you now but I get I get when I get up real bad hiccups like in for like three days but I was getting super paranoid. They're sticking a thing in my nose on hiccup and it's two. I guess just stupid thought to have in my head but I was worried about it i. Love. Let's get. Hey I'm glad to hear you may that made out. Okay there now Jim, very excited for this interview because I'm a colts fan myself been colts fan for a very long time and last year we start off the season great breaches. Dentists are great with Andrew lucked retiring budget Kobe percent came in start off five got injured and just wasn't the same after that, and now they decide to bring in Philip rivers. What's been like with Philip Rivers on the squad. As media member, it's been. Great because. Like below, just to go be reset was within the locker room and he is I, mean frank coach loves of the players love and helping great leader. Any is get by all accounts he is, but he was never. BOOZER, eager to the media and so that was tough and like the polar opposite he I don't often enjoys it, but he'll certainly pretends. So He's been very candid interview very open. Very honest. Today was funny. We were asking about somebody asked about his throwing motion which you know. One of those running jokes in the NFL for a long time he laughed and he was just like my son throws away I wanted to throw that away I would ever teach anybody to throw that way but that's the way it. So he's he's got to eat the humor he likes talking about pretty much anything that we do. So that's that's That's been fun and near the football part of it is in Tiffin. Like? Just as much as you Kobe had been around Frank Reich offense from before and he? Studied Andrew Luck and you knew he had an understanding what was going on it's Kinda different level with Philip rivers right now like having played with Frank Reich four and exterior the offense coordinator. He just he knows what he's hearing new ninety, nine percent of the playbook before you even got the apples and you can tell I mean is making progressions is read so much faster than guy like accepted last year and again, that's not really a not jacoby percent. We're talking about a borderline quarterback Philip. Rivers. The the smoothness of the offense I guess it's been the biggest difference to watch him operated and understand what the deep trying to to, and we've already seen a couple of instances of this is because we won't. You know there's been no preseason game but we had a couple of scrimmages and it's just there's a level of confidence there bill that wasn't there what you're. Throwing motion feels like since he's been the NFL has just gone like worse and worse, but his throws has seemed to be more and more accurate. The worst it gets it's just the weirdest thing. He. said he was watching his practice the other day and she jacobson you know the rookie quarterback that drafted it's got a free and Canon are and he said I've watched to make it throw and he goes on mechanic never make zero. I can make the throw. He's like I. Just gotTa. Throw it about three seconds before Jacob big decision. So it's pretty funny but. It's not it's just he's he's got he's a pitcher in A. Johnny Cueto Guy, who just had a drops angles and Google around like he just kind of find different ways to get it done. You kinda like that savvy veteran thing it's it's hard not to like. Now you mention Jacobson WanNa talk about him. I know. We all pretty much feel like the spots of one into as far as the quarterback position is gonNA. Be Philip and Jacoby. When cold strapped, Jacob East and I was a huge fan of the draft pick especially when they got him now it's. GonNa Roll with eastern at three or going to be a battle between him and Chad Kelly. What's what's been going on there as far as that situation Yeah I mean. So in terms of snap sitting getting a roughly equal amount of snaps and there hasn't been a lot I mean most of them have dawn to. Philip and Jacoby, but I can't see a world. In, which they end up going with Chat Kelly over over Jacobson Lake Hiccup season I mean enough to use the economy and I just. I he hasn't. It's not like he's been a disaster camp. So I don't know why you would ever go away from that. He's actually look pretty good cabbies but a little bit more accurate than I thought everybody talks about the arm strength you knew that going in, you saw the college tape but then he person you're like Oh my God like I i. just I think I've ever been in persons the guy with the bigger art. Jacob. It's kind of incredible Got, Crockett. So I, mean he talking about a guy with the tools you need to be a successful NFL quarterback you start with the rocket armies God. So you're GONNA get a chance to learn Philip rivers the guy who understand those may be better than most quarterbacks is generation I i. just think that's good opportunity to pass up. So now I think Jacob wins this job they won't. Withdraw your cuts coming up I don't think there's any way they expose them to that to the waiver, sneak them on the practice squad claimed so yeah I think they roll three quarterback on I think Jacob. He's in the best situation he could be like you said, learning behind Phil Rivers is best situation can be in right now for for someone of his stature. Now's we had a I my opinion since Chris, Ballard been there he's been dried his draft has been phenomenal the how he's handled a drafts. WHO's to stay? Who's been a standout rookie from this year's draft class that you've seen. Okay. So that's I'll try to thank let's see what do I want to go with I'll over to. Jonathan Taylor going to be a great NFL running back I take a little I'm you know for people listening for profanity purposes? It's going to be you just you just GonNa you're just GonNa hate yourself draft either or Marlin back because I really think it's going to be a pretty good split and somebody's going to have a good game scored touchdown. Then the other guy's GonNa throw the next week and just commute just really going to act up yourself. Miserable. That said show, Taylor they're really good running back in the NFL a little more confidence especially in his in his pass catching abilities and cast blocking the abilities he's going to be great So I think you're gonNA see flashes at this season for sure. But I'M GONNA go I guess maybe with an underdog and go with Julia Blackman I really really liked what I saw Jillian black onto safety out of Utah he's a guy that played some cornering college also got it super rangy athletic and smart i. don't think they necessarily get him into draft into their ground where they get him if he hadn't tore his acl the end of the at the end of the season last year and he's probably a second round pick in the colts miss them. So they get a guy who with a second round talent later in the third round and I think that be thrilled about it. He's already kind of back at practice. He's not gonNA play right away. You probably play with the weeks of the season but man I just I love the idea what mattie precludes can do within which signed him up over I mean they don't they Feel comfortable with him planned slot if they needed to you know. So Kenny Moore's hurt or saw going on, they could put him in the slot. They put him at safe bigger put a free safety I. Think they like his tackling enough that they might go within a strong they're gonNA move him all over the place and I think we're watching IT NFL well-being into I will say. Decision List football but you see a lot more guys moving around and being able to do different things I. think the colts drafted their version of this I'm not I'm not comparing him to like Derwin James or anything, but I do think he's got some really I on upside watching pile field so it might take a few weeks to get fully healthy and maybe it's a risk taking. Guy Coming up an ACL injury because who knows when you'll be running around at the by think once he usefully be one fun guy to watch. Yeah. I remember when we drafted him that the reports of payment, not me ready maybe halfway through the season before even take the field and now it's he's just he's about to be ready. He's about to be reading few weeks. That's crazy. been. Homeless guy that I got a chance to write the story yesterday. So that was nice. But to hold yesterday's Guy who lives with the trainer's room, you know and. I don't want people to take that the wrong way. I'd be like he's hurt timer and that just always kind of making sure that he's working on his body in one way or another, and he was like Julian and there all the time the guy was working his butt off to try to get back your Safety Hillary and it's been and I think it's kind of impressed like. One I respect to one of the most perspective players on the team as over him to say I, I hear that kid I respect him huge a huge vote of confidence for her young guy like that, and I'm also speaking of compound very proud of myself enough telling adjusted black all during this conversation because I don't like one hundred times. So yet Julie Black ice yeah. Got It. Right. DIJANA Justin and there will be very, very complete one eighty. Eight jeopardy exactly and now last question for let you go I, believe you around for Ryan the Ryan. Grigson era right. I was I was in Indianapolis actually covers cult yet, but I'm yeah, I was definitely in Indianapolis Okay Sheila's. Credits the question. I guess would Chris Ballard overall what's what is it like with him? I feel like I mean he's just a guy that says I'm bill to the draft and this year he's. Now Bryant pieces to the draft in years prior he added some big-time free agents as well. What's it like his presence at the facility? which again I feel like I hate to say this because I'm there's a bias there with uncovering like frank and Chris but break is maybe one of the best overall humans I've ever met in my life and Chris Ballard may not be far behind. Just, he's a good person and I will say this about what you hear on the NFL there's a lot of general managers. You don't take phone calls kickbacks you don't want to answer questions. I'm not saying Chris Open all the time to all those things. But if you've got, you've got something you gotta ask him a question you gotta ask him US Open to it and I'll have a conversation with you. About it he's I guess that's one of the things that you really have to appreciate. He's GonNa give you on stocks because Speller doesn't generally I. Mean I can't. I can't think of an instance where he's just kind of flat out lied is GonNa be honest with you is going to tell you why you like the Guy White didn't like guy why you made a decision he did and and. And you really have to respect that of general manager because especially in near the NFL right now where there's so many secrets, nobody wants and all that stuff. So I really appreciate that Chris Ballard tends to be open and honest and willing to have a conversation with you about what's going on so that that's and you know I mean from the way he the team. I was just talking to Tai Kwon, Lewis you know kind of dependent disappointment the first couple years of his career and he was telling me that that Chris Ballard Texan during the off season chicken by doing send him a recommendation for a book that he thinks he might like this is a guy who cares about his players. So that's the kind of Guy Chris Ballard That's awesome. You don't find too much ally GM's like you said, it's just very few and it does seem like He. Cares about his players so much that I bet you and cut days come around I know it's never easy for some GM's to let cut players but I bet you, it's a lot harder for handed to compare to other GM's as well. All right again, I was joined by Jim I L L JIM is Colton insider for the Indy Star follow him on twitter at Jim. Jim Thank you for taking the time to talk to me on one and done radio. That was a great interview with Jim and I really appreciate him taking his time talk colts football because I don't get a lot of talk of colts football with in general especially, I live in Georgia. So people by the Falcons Georgia, bulldogs on just not. You know. But. Wants which to again more. This is more college football talking I. Think it's why because it just keeps coming up in the news and that's the issues with the big ten. The reason why I keeps coming up the news because it keeps stuff keeps happening and because they. I mean at the end the day they started as far as postponement. As Conference only as far as hey, we're gonNA play in the spring. They started all that. So. News day-to-day came out where. President Trump tweeted that he had a conversation with the commissioner. Kevin? Warrant. Basically. Saying we are going to I. Mean we're at the one yard line right there. What do we need? What do you need from us? What can I provide to get big ten football going to get college football going? I mean I'm not trying to get into politics not trying to say he did because of this but I'm sure that if the big ten were to get going. President trump would come out and say look what I did. To. Michigan to Wisconsin. To Ohio. All these states that again, this politician saying he can easily G- open the stages I got football back but there wasn't gonna be any football but look I brought football back. Now what? Apparently. Reports are coming out. There's apparently a source from ESPN. has come out and said nothing's changed. Where they talked to one of the presence from one of the universities that said nothing's changed. It's GonNa Change. So what? So. It's not not only is the president of the United States night understanding he's the president has had a lot of media backlash for stuff he does I get that. But he's coming to you. Saying Kevin. What can I do to help? What do you need from me to help? There's already a test coming out where you can take. It's supposed to be very affordable, very cheap and the results is supposed to be very fast as far as. How these players can get tested. So now, Kevin Warren you. We have this. What else do you need? WHAT WE NEED TO BE Moving as a program to try as a conference to play to try I. think that's the problem with all of this. There was already again a college football game that's already happened. It was FCS Austin. P. In. Central Arkansas. It's all they've already done a game. And Big Twelve ACC and PAC twelve not pactolus gives me an SEC, excuse me. Those three are trying to make something happen and yes. Out Jomar chase from Lsu. An, actually. The core back transferred over from wake forest. To Georgia Newman Jack, Jamie numerous newsmen. OPT hours well. To. Prep, for the NFL. Get ready for the future. That's GonNa see that's going to happen players are going to opt out it happens in the NFL it happened in the NBA. It's habit in the NHL it's happened in baseball. It's going to happen in Athletics I. Bet You College Basketball if they try and play college basketball, it's going to happen there to some degree. I, bet you players opt out that stuff happens. That's that's the world we live in that's going to happen. What has to happen is okay he's not gonNA play. These guys are not GonNa play are we going to try and see if we can play as a conference? That's what the president wants to see. What are you need to try and make something happen what do you need to? Make an tent, how come the SEC, the ACC and the pact, what the big twelve using again, the twelve is mixed up even though the big twelve eleven have twelve teams anymore how come these teams are working to try something but you guys are now saying, no, I don't WanNa try anymore. So now we're not trying. Or are we again reports coming out saying that they're trying to play as soon as possible in multiple reports we don't know. We don't know when we don't know how we don't know where don't know why. Wouldn't? And the main thing is this. Again, the reports came out the other day saying eleven to three was the votes were Ohio. State Nebraska and Iowa were the teams of voted to not postpone the season to try and play football that report officially came out the other day. Because a hat to it had to come out. Now. We are looking at is there a way to try? Is Is there a way to try and playing in around Thanksgiving their way to try and play in October? What I just my opinion is this. Again, there. Since before there's no, I don't think there's a right or wrong answer and what to do as far as should they play or not? I. Don't think there's a right or wrong answer that I think the answer we're looking for is. Some people are trying in some art we need to know why you're not trying and the big ten has not come out and said that has given the cold hard facts when parents and players are asking, can you show me the numbers? Show me the facts? Can you show me this and the big ten is saying we can't that's a problem. That's my right as a player as A. Parent to know why are you not letting my child play the sport he came to your university do yes does is it agree important? Absolutely but my child did not just come here just to go to school there was five other schools out there he could have gone to play. And probably three of them are lying at the play right now I don't know again I don't know how all these schools are or who was recruited for where I don't know that. But this. Is, the problem we don't know all the facts and apparently numbers are looking positive. Is there going to be a vaccine coming out I don't know is there going to be? How. Fast are we going to these these in I? Don't know I don't know anything I. Don't have all the facts what the big ten parents and players want to see is the facts of why it should not play. and. If we are going to play. In this spring trying push it forward try to do November maybe the end of October try that they will take that. They will not WANNA take. Again, there's no point in trying to push this farther when in the spring is too much on a player if especially one that's going to return or somehow play in the spring and then get draft in the NFL way too much on a player and on the athlete to expect them to do that, and that's why the Bay ten continues to be in the news because let's try this spring. It's just not gonNA work out. I want close out the show talking about. valvoline camera news and what's going on and apparently the new. Orleans. Saints are reportedly. Open Trading Alvin. Kamara after. He's already said he's not gonNA show to camp or he's the reason why his absence. camp. Is Because of the fact that he wants a long term contract that's great. Now Chimeras. Obviously not the first player to ever hold out while long term contract want new contract in general. But he's obviously going to be. I. Think he's available on the tray market. A team is asking for the Saints Rising for first round pick. Now, I will give him a first round pick for Alvin, Kamara I. Know what he can do as far as a playmaker now last year though. This is where it gets a little bit iffy for him. Last year as the full time starter as the guy, the dude, the guy that I drafted for the very first round of my fancy team. Boy Did. He not show up last year and boy was I upset but that's okay. Going back to Chimera. He lashed you had a career low mind you full time starter now Mark Ingram not there. It's this guy's team this dude team. Had A carilo thirteen hundred and thirty yards from scrimmage last year. Okay thirteen hundred thirty yards from scrimmage as terrible. Now Chimera a second round. Pick out. Tennessee. Big Time player. Big Time attributes would be a star in this league again, just didn't show up only had six touchdowns last year bonded I. Feel that on my fantasy team too. And I'm not here talk fantasy sports because trust me I don't want to. Get. Pretty upset when I talk about the fact that I lost and he was a big reason why? He's do I think he's trade maybe I mean if teams want to give up a first round pick. How high is picking be Like you find the chiefs arguable first rounder again, never playmaker for my offense. For next. Year, oh? Yes. Do It I mean, what's a first round pick to a team? Like Kansas City it's nothing like this year luckily did draft Clyde. They're not going mean I don't see a team like saints or the the chiefs going to make that trade. But they drive the cloud at worse Hilar-. Not everyone was like, rude are they take? What do they need? I mean you can just take any of them like whatever. Right 'cause chiefs, they won the superbowl. They are dominant team just to get there. So. If we're, looking forward to. What may be it where he does go. Maybe team. New. England. May Be a team. I know like Jacksonville if they're trying to tank maybe not then because you don't want to do that right. You WanNa Look Ed. Teams that are contenders. Because those first round picks don't matter to them. Or teen doesn't it have a solid running back situation? I there's just so many teams out there. Again to chimeras point and brought this up before running backs of a very short life in the NFL. Okay. Very short life. There's very few cases where they last as long as Adrian. Peterson has okay very few. But this is how it is running backs. They just they hit a certain Pete. They play hard for that time when they have the rookie contract still and then when the contract is done. And they get a new deal you start to see a letdown as far as production GM's know that coaches know that in the running backs no that that's why they're deal is I need to get my money. Now it's my money and I need it now. If anyone knows what a commercial has from. Good for you. Back to Kamera. I don't know if he's GonNa get his long term contract. He may they may have to. But at the same time if the tangent, the saints are reportedly saying, we're get if you give us first round pick, you can take Kamera. I mean, he didn't do anything last year as far as you're the guy, what can we? What can you do nothing? He didn't do anything. So. Do. We want to sit there and say, is he worth signing a long term deal? Maybe. Maybe, not maybe the saints onto some saying listen we just we could just draft somebody. You know we are. We just signed multiple Ryan backs to do what you did and probably for a lot cheaper. That's the business that we're in. My opinion I've always said you can never have too many running backs. Rather have a great offensive line. then. A great running back. That's just me. Yeah. Is he a playmaker absolutely but the offensive line dictates where the RIMAC in go Get Guida has somewhat average vision and great speed can break tackles. Not, an executive Elliott or or Chimera when he was great. Or Agm Pearson when he was in his prime, if you don't, if you get someone that's nine that category somebody. A Middle Tier. But you have a great line, maybe this just worth to have a great life. I don't know. I'm no expert on this person. If I'm building team read the offensive line I than bill then just draft running back. That's just my opinion. That will dividends episode up one done radio.

See? This week's Adam Schefter podcast the NFL draft is now less than three weeks away. And we have three men will have an influence on the course of direction of the upcoming NFL draft Browns general manager John Dorsey who's been a major player this off season trading for Odal Beckham junior and alleviate Vernon from the New York Giants joins us to discuss his acquisitions and the Browns surprising plants for this upcoming NFL draft when they're currently scheduled to be without a first round draft pick Indianapolis Colts general manager. Chris Bowden a mover and Shaka from last year looking to shake it up again in Indianapolis and chargers head coach Anthony Lynn talks about his near death experience. But I the Browns general manager John Dorsey are here with Browns general manager, John Dorsey takes his big swig of water there before he gets ready for this. Big hard hitting interview. All right, brownie typical Michigan fan. All right Browns, general manager John Dorsey basketball team. Well, listen at the time there were taping this in the final sixteen. So if they can take it further then through your boat. I appreciate you throwing a bone. How's your team doing? I'll throw you a bone. I think we got better. I think we got better. I think that's what the goal is. In terms of when you set out a plan. You know, there's certain periods there where you can kind of better your team either be unrestricted free agents through to trades wires or college draft college free agency. So we're going to try to take advantage. These types of opportunities John you bring up traits. You made the biggest trade in the off season trading for Odell Beckham junior a one a three engine Abril peppers. How does it trade like that get made I think you plan for it? I mean, I think people sometimes laugh at you. But we we try to have all different types of scenarios in terms of determining trades when you hear certain things, and you know, ninety nine percent of the time these traits don't happen. And then usually you take those different scenarios your Thurman, the trash can and off you do the next project. But this is so happened on I'd say Tuesday mid after. Noon about four four thirty after getting off a phone call with David Gettleman, I'm saying to the guys I think we may have a chance here on Tuesday March twelfth at four thirty eastern caress. Yes. And what made you think that it had a chance? Well, just listen to the conversations with with David myself, and it was going in the good direction, and I just felt very positive at the time that this may this actually may come the fruition. So that happens at four thirty eastern. And then what happens subsequent to that that the trae gets processing done. Well, actually, there was never an agreement of the trade until about seven pm that night. So it was ongoing conversation and dialogue, and it just so happened all the pieces of, you know, all the pieces of the conversation went to the final and the of where we're we're materialized. So when you drove into work that Tuesday morning on March twelfth, you did not know that the trade for Odell Beckham junior had a chance to go down that day. Well, you you you think of all different types of scenarios? And by no means were you not gonna try to, you know, keep this this type of trade moving forward. And and that's just you know, proper planning. I mean, that's what you do as you're planning for all different types of scenarios. And this will just so happen to work. So when you get to call it the trade his agree to it's complete. It's going down, and you sent to one three inch Brill peppers to the giants. What is your reaction? What happens in the Cleveland Browns complex? Do you? Call your owner Jimmy has lem. I what happens at that time when you know, you've just completed a historic trade while on a trade of this magnitude. You wanted the prep ownership beforehand and say, you know, there's a chance this may happen. So I'm just giving your heads up. And so what you do is after the traders orchestrated say, congratulations and you move on the next project, and that's what you do. No celebrations new. Hi, five seven eight nine one more third place, the AFC north we haven't accomplished anything. Now, we got better with a better player, and hopefully we can move this thing and be Oltra competitive now in the AFC north, but as you well know, it takes fifty three guys to play the game of football, not one particular person. It's galvanizes a group, but people with the same common core and core beliefs and goals to sustain you know, winnings all about because the good teams win in the fall could teams to win in March. But you are aware of the excitement that created in Cleveland. Well, no, that's dures a fan base in Cleveland that hasn't had hope and belief while and now, hopefully, you know, I've said all along, you know, this organization let's wake up the sleeping giant because the Cleveland Browns football team is one of those are conic franchises in the fan base. Put them up to anybody because there is good as any fan base. I've seen in National Football League. When that trade goes through though, do you get any messages from any former Browns, and he people of the city of Cleveland like this LeBron James reach out to you to say John so excited for the Cleveland Browns season to start. No because all Piccola Bron James has my cell phone number begin with. But you know, to me that that trade really doesn't get fine lives. Now, I believe we'll eat drano piece paper until he passes the medical that trades not finalized until he passes a medical with took place a few days later. So I mean to me you just it's a systematic approach of building a team. That's what you do. When old yell showed up in Cleveland? What was the message that your organization gave him at that point in time? Well, I I believe in face to face meetings. And I think it's always important to sit down and talk to individuals. See what his core makeup seabird his true passions in in his competitiveness is all about. I want him to understand what the culture within the Cleveland Browns organization is moving forward and see what we're all about. Because to me those men are those in that locker room, those are the Cleveland Browns. And this organization will go move. We'll do anything ensure that those guys we'll take care of those guys. But you. Got to do your part to on the field. Okay. But the organization will be there to help in the system you. But then again, you have to do your job on the field. And that's why you know. That's why that conversation is so important, and what was your impression of him upon your meeting with him? Well, he is a very competitive very passionate man with very broad interest. You know who loves the game football his teammates. Absolutely love this guy. So I'm excited to see. This see him be a part of the two thousand nineteen Cleveland Browns offense moving forward, a lot of strong egos, a lot of big personalities in that locker room. How quipped is pretty kitchens to handle all that going forward. I think Fred is very direct his very honest. Who's his go be very demanding? He's gonna tell the players exactly what the expectations are. It's not like he hasn't been around strong personalities before as long as you can move this needle forward organizationally under the. Leadership of Freddie kitchens. I I'm excited to see this thing moving forward. Some big moves on the defensive side. You trade for Olivier Vernon you sign Sheldon Richardson. What is your impression of your front line on defense? And what your defense can do the season, you know, as you well know, one of the basic tenants. I've always had as you're only as strong as your foundation and that foundation is the offense in the defensive line. So now, you know, what what what's alleviate does? And what Sheldon does that just you know, that's going to help miles a little bit. That's going to hear Larry ogan Jobe that's gonna make a manual, and then we have some other younger players in there. You know, Gerard abra who can rush the pair solo them. We have you know, we have some other younger players vets then you can begin to rotate these players. So, you know, in today's football, you have to have pressure on that quarterback either be outside or inside. But you have to have constant pressure. John. I would say that you may have the most dangerous front four, no football. I know you don't like price say this. I mean, you know, what it looks? Let's let's wait and see what happens in pad. You can make all the assertions you want. But to me. You guys go to training camp? You gotta work every day. You know, what you may? You know, you may look good on paper. But let's turn. Let's turn that paper in the reality by your actions on the field. That's what good teams begin to be really good. With is that the same approach that you have to take with all the excitement surrounding the Cleveland Browns because this may be the most excited that people have been about the Browns since they came back to Cleveland in one thousand nine hundred nine and everybody knew that team was gonna win. But people are now expecting the Browns to win. Maybe win the division maybe compete in the place. Maybe it'd be a Super Bowl contender. Well, I know they were excited at seven eight and one I'm myself was not excited. Seven eight went because that put us in third place. So to me you get excited by you know, you sit there and organizational goals in the off season as if you can match goals, I think that should be the objective of this team moving forward. But if a team goes seventy one, and then goes in ads Odell Beckham junior in alleviate Vernon and Sheldon Richardson and some of the other. Players and moves that you've made I don't want to put pressure on you. But it should be better than seventy one next year. Oh, I grew up, you know, stress self-induced, we all we all know vet. So the message has to be loud and clear how we're gonna -ccomplish ultimate goals. Then with these guys have to do is follow the leadership of Freddie kitchens in the coaching staff to move this thing in the proper direction that the Cleveland Browns should be in. What is Kareem hunt gonna bring to this franchise this season? Cream hunt is diligently right now, what he what I love about him is he's trying to show everybody to better version of cream on the actually was in the community of Cleveland last week mentoring, some young men, and he will continue to do that. And it just to show that he truly is remorseful for his actions. His play on the field is really good. But he adds the Cleveland Browns. Now, you know, we could ever three headed monster here. And I saw in Seattle when they began to to to do this thing they had three running backs that we're trying to establish a new trend way always hear about the two headed Masa. But now all of a sudden, you have a Nick Chubb you have Kareem hunt. Now, you have a Duke Johnson. So you got three guys there that can be entertained, but at that position. And so that's exciting. And the last one ask you before we let you go here. What you're going to be like you undrafted. When you don't have a first round draft pick, John business as usual. I mean, that's the way it is. Who's to say, I won't go up in the first round, my we she something there you never. I know. My phone's open give me a call, John. Thanks very much congratulates than the all season. Even though you don't want any congratulations yet and good luck. Well, I'm just telling you it a lot of people excited. Okay. Excitement is good. But reality is your action on the field. The general manager of the Indianapolis Colts. Chris Ballard demand that has helped bring this franchise back to where it is right now made the playoffs last year went on a little run there. Look like could have gone even further Chris and did a little briefly as sometimes less can do at this time last year, we were sitting here talking, and we were getting ready for the draft you end up trading back getting extra picks drafting Quinton Nelson. When you look back on that pick and the subsequent picks you acquire. What stands out to you? Well, the the I thought our scouts did a unbelievable job. And we've talked a lot about the character of our team. The character of the men, you know, we bring into our locker room the character that group is is really strong from you know, from a football perspective. I mean, they all have a humbleness and some in empathy where they want to get better. And they take coaching. They take constructive criticism. And they understand, you know, the shoulders they stand upon with our organization, you know, from that group with Peyton and we've had ex players come back in and talk to him about it. And they've really, you know, they've taken the baton ram with it. When you treated back last year to go from number three to number six, did you trade back with the idea that Clinton Nelson would be the guy at six if you were there, we knew there was I want to say, I I think at the time I thought there was six to eight players that we all thought had. Elite talent. So we knew that, you know, between Quinton and a few other guys that we were going to get a really good player. We were not focused as much on position as we were getting a guy with with real talent who also had character, which I thought last year at the top of the draft was really strong. What is your assessment at the top of this year's draft? I know you're not picking his is you did. But you must have feelings about this draft and how this current group prospect stacks. Oh, it's funny that you say that because you know, always kind of go back and say, okay, if we were in the same spot last year. Who would be the guys that would have been in the mix? And there's I don't know if there's quite the depth of last year, but there are some players that I think would have been under consideration. So if you're in the spot last year who who were some of the guys that would have been there. I don't wanna quite get into say. And you know, at this point, what are the strengths of this draft as you look at it, Chris. Well, look, it's a good defensive draft. I think as we go, you know, we're finishing up right now. We'll go through the board watch in February. And then we sit down and we go through it again, we'll finish next week before scouts go. And then we'll go through it a third time. But we think there's some really good defensive players in in general, not just one position good defensive football players. I think the offensive line's a little underrated. Also, I do think there's some depth on the offensive line the real strength of it. You know as the defensive line without without question. And then it's just a matter of flavor. You know, what your type of flavor when you go into this? Do you have a flavor that you're looking at two, you know, a group of guys ten to twelve guys river may be that you would really like to see wind up with the Indianapolis. So she must have an idea in each round. Boy, I'd like to get this guy this guy there. Yeah. We got we got a. We're starting to get our handle on you know, around twenty-six what what's going to be there. We still got a shift through all the information, you know, here in the next few weeks. But saying that, you know, we got a pretty strict criteria of what we're looking for not only fit from athletic player standpoint. But also from a character standpoint does that mean, we won't, you know, take a chance on a guy that had some issues? No a dozen. But it's also going to be a guy that we think is going to fit into the culture of what we're building in our team building the team during free agency, you signed some of your own players clean gathers this year, you brought in some players in the outside most notably Justin Houston and Devin funchess what attracted you to Justin Houston while I was with him for four years. So that in case. Yeah. In can't city. So that that helped I got to see him on a daily basis, you know, and then weekly basis play and prepare, and we just thought he was going to be a really good addition to our to our defensive line. You know, we want to get to a point we have seven or eight guys plan. And we think the addition adjust is going to help that we look you just turned thirty. We think he's got unique physical traits which usually allow guys to play longer in. And we think Justin still got a lot left in a tank, and we think schematic -ly what we're going to ask him to do on defense is going to is going to really help in. And then the addition of human, you know, as you know, I mean, we're going to pick our spots in free agency. I just think you know, when you're building a team, especially where we were we really had to get a foundation a young players. You know, before we really started, you know, adding, you know, outside guys are we going to, you know, pick our spots. Yes. We are. But you know, going forward, you know, most. You know, most most of our players were hoping is gonna come from internally you talked about picking your spots. And yet you hit it into free agency with as much if not more salary cap room than the other. And I think people were waiting to see this shopping spree that Chris Ballard was going to go on that didn't really occur like that. There was some additions. But it wasn't like what people were expecting. They're expecting Christmas morning with presence everywhere now. And I think I told her by at the combine what we were going to do. I mean, we look we that first week in a free agency. Is there that first few days is crazy? And and we actually were in on a couple of guys, but they're just there's you've got to have a point to where you just say, you know, what where we're out at this. When if it gets to this number we're going to be out and we're comfortable with that. We just we just feel like between, you know, the the rest of free agency the draft after the draft into the cut down that we can find an answer. That's going to fit our team. So let's say you're going through free. So you come up with a guy who's a ten million dollars a year player, you attach a ten million dollar figure to him. Do you ever budge off that and you say, okay, I'm going to go to ten seven five. I'm going to go to eleven million. How often does that happen? Or does not happen at all. It's not happened with us yet to say that to say that we wouldn't do that. Now. I'll never say never because the first time I do we'll we'll do it the next week. So we attach a max point that. Hey, look, and we do it before free agency starts you sit in there, and we talk. Okay. Where's where's the point that we're going to drop out? And then when it gets to that point, we you know, we just were out is it hard. Sometimes when you really wanna get that player. Now, I think you've gotta take motion out of because what will happen is you get in a you get in a back and forth. And you know, you're in the middle either. Either a great poker player or you're in the middle of a bidding war, and if I've learned anything over the last two years the ability to say, no is. Is really a powerful. It's a powerful thing. That's the true measure of success the ability to say no can do that. And it's hard. It's very difficult to do. But you know, you've just gotta have discipline with what you're doing. Then you gotta have enough confidence in your staff that you're gonna find answers, and look and even your coaching staffs. Gotta understand and are and I was just we were talking before we started here about you know, they don't ever get in panic mode. When if we're actually going after a player, and we don't get him. They there's I'm sure there's disappointment. But they know at the end the day, we're going to do the best we can try to find him an answer, you know, before we get into you know, between here in October November. I started out by asking you about quitting Nelson. And your selection of him last year at this time last year, we also had uncertainty facing Andrew look when you look back at last year and all that he was able to do did that surprise you even. No. I mean, I just had a an and I wish there was. I mean, just, you know, sometimes you go with your gut, but I just saw at gotten to know Andrew, so well, you know, from the first day I walked into building to watch, you know, his transformation and watch him work to watch him work through. Solving problems along the way. And then I knew the team around him, you know, his doctors his guys helped him our trainers. And then Willem it was helping him rehab. I just felt that it's I knew it was gonna play again, I knew he was gonna play too high level again. I just couldn't put a status. Why would never give you a date? I mean, everybody kept asking me what's the timetable has. I don't I don't know. I don't know the time. I just know it's going to happen. And it did. Yeah. And it did no credit credit to a lot of people before Andrew before. Let you go. I want to ask you also one. Last thing you hear is the general manager of the Indianapolis Colts. And yet you grew up working in your dad's tire store. What is the greatest lesson that you learned working in your dad's tire store? Good question. Well, that it is really freaking hot in Texas city, Texas, never one I tell you what the ability to work with different people. And I it doesn't matter where you come from what you do to build a Bill to connect him relate at every level. No matter if I'm fixing somebody's tire Aaron and Aaron their tire up filling their gas. Everybody's got a story. Everybody has a, you know Gaza worked with you know, everybody has a different perspective on life. And and it doesn't matter. Whether you're you know, GM of a team in the National Football League or you're you're working at Matthews Inc. Really at the end of the day. We're no different. But being GM you prefer being that rather than working at tire store. I could I tell people all the time. I could have to go get a real job for a living. That would be tough Chris. Thanks very much. John today. She had a draft. We'll be back in a moment with chargers.

Anthony Lynn Anthony committed a big season went to divisional playoff season ended in disappointment. But this is a team your team that's loaded with talent. And as you begin to you're ready for the draft in April. You had a chance to fill some more holes. How would you assess this draft, and what it might be able to do for your roster dravis been deep in D line? You can find some solid linebackers in this draft often Salaam in Israel. But you never know Adam to be honest with you, you know, we always say last year quarterback class may have been loo strong initiatives class. But until these kids get into the National Football League and play on Sundays. You just never know. When you go into that draft. You usually have an idea of some guys that you may come away with. Oh, yeah. We do a do a homework in. We know what unease all, but we never want to go into draft drafting on these who want to take the best vailable, and then we just make adjustments from there you take during James example. We didn't have him coming to us in the first round. Last year. We was going to have to tackle and just gonna fill in my lap. We bashes Gallup. And so we make adjustment. Now, we had to move on from one of my are starting safety Jalil die. I mean, we love him. But we had two guys men Saint position in one just a lot younger, and he's and he has a a lot of potential. So you know, I it was a tough decision to make. But it happened because during James Vilnai lap. And when you saw there James this year, you probably still wonder how he filling your lap. Yeah. I did every day. That good, right? Is that Goodman, who does he remind you of you know, you have like Shaun Taylor camp chance to account was combination guy can go back to Steve at water with this physicality, but this guy can cover he's a big physical safety that can cover in a box. So you can do so many things with him. You can use them as a linebacker. You can use them as a safety. So use them as a Russia. I remember tweeting out at the beginning of the season that there are some people who think that Derwin James reminds them of Sean Taylor. And I don't often read my comments. I try not to read them. But I remember reading some of the comments that day and people were in disbelief and annoyed and angered that anybody could compare. Well could be compared to Sean Taylor. Well, no Durban, even how the best senior campaign. You know at at Florida state coming out there last year. He was injured your before that. So I can see why some people may think that, but when you really studied the table this young man, and you had to go all the way back to freshman sophomore year. You saw the potential anti. Anti as you are in the AFC west how difficult is it knowing that you will have to face Patrick Mahomes for the rest of your coaching career. It's going to be difficult for a lot of people. But present them twice a year man and watched him grow up as a kid in high school and and plan their mama mater number watching Patrick for a long time. And now going to go up against him twice a year as going to be tough challenge. But we're building a team Thom Tillis going I and and the rest of the crew to match up with that can city team. They have so many weapons, and we know that you know, we can't accomplish what we want to accomplish until we can beat that team. And the speed that team have the problems that they present with their speed and space as been a problem for us showing you're making free agent moves you're you're going to be in a draft this month, the chiefs and Patrick Mahomes are on your mind, when you're making some are they have to be, you know, and we went into draft Lascher the same way, you know, we wrote in DJ we brought in a casual white. He's a young man. A lot of people don't know a lot about he got hurt early. But he is heck of a talent. He was a safety at West Virginia that we turned into a linebacker that was outstanding early on. So. But fast, and so you have to match speed his base gas, Kevin white younger, brother. That's right, absolutely. Now you bring Patrick Mahomes, Texas, take you went to Texas take he went to Texas Tech. How do you not wind up with him? Well, you know, a lot of people do go home. So. And he was good. He was a good player. But you know, Kansas City, they moved up they were aggressive, and they went and got the guy they want. It was he better than you realize as an NFL player, Patrick Mahomes assault. We saw the the skill. It was there. But we think it was going to happen. This soon to be honest with you know, and you take your head off their commanding me. And I and eat your quarterback, Philip rivers. He's in the latter part of his career how much longer do you envision Philip rivers playing. You know, it's hard to say. I mean, you look at Tom Brady just win and soup boy forty one and it doesn't look like he's slowing down. You know, Philip rivers showed up last year. He turned thirty eight during the season. He looks better than the year before when I got here in two seventeen. So it's hard to say, you know, these guys are we're taking care of these guys. And I think that's proven to put a Benepe logged on fail. Then it feels good job with the rule changes and things like that. But training differently taking different supplements. And they're just playing longer. How would you expect to replace the loss of Terrell Williams and Jason Barrett? There's going to be tough. And you know, when people say, you know, we have this this ES we have Canaan out in number one, my Williams. The number two Travis Benjamin's wanted to step up at that number three spot force. You know, I felt like we had three starters last year, you know, especially towards the end. And so we'll see who step in to Terrell shoes. But, you know, Dylan Cantrell, we drop it in for reason. You know, he's got to step up. And so there are a lot of guys Jeremy Davies ample step up. This is our opportunity. So we'll see what happens joy both going to be healthy this year. He's healthy right now. That's all I know. And as long as he stays healthy that'd be a big boost for the defense. We miss them last year the first ten weeks of the season. We we did miss joy in when he's on the feel no doubt. We are better football team. How much do you still hear about the Super Bowl commercial that you did? But a lot to be honest with you, and it was it was supposed to be a Super Bowl commercial. It was me talking to first responders just like they were my team in kinda got surprised ambush that the guys had actually saved my life with their in then decided to make it a Super Bowl commercial. And you know, if it brings respect and light to the first responders, Adam that's that's all I care about for people that don't know you were hit by a car. Yeah. I would say about car in two thousand five. It was a tragic accident I hit by a car going fifty five sixty miles an hour. And I was walking. I was on my feet and flew across the street. Forty five fifty feet and air. Nowhere should survive landed on Volkswagen total Volkswagen, Elaine. Thank god. It was there about an end on the sidewalk probably wouldn't be here today. But you know, it was just a tragic accident, and I was safe for some reason how could a person be hit by a car going fifty five sixty miles an hour. Be thrown as far as you are internet. How do you survive the ad is that happen? You don't. I mean, if you look at the stats is ninety nine point nine percent Potala if you look at the stats, and so, you know, I think God every day that I'm here. I believe when I got up into one I'm here for a reason did that accident leave you with any long lasting effects it all as far as limps bone bruise of her couple surgeries on offense. And reconstruction in my face shoulder knees of Esme surge. He's bound accident. Yes. And the first responders that came to help save you that day. How critical were they to your survival very critical. And I did not know that until I met these people when we actually talked afterwards. I'm always setting a trailing we talked for like three hours at the commercial. We were I couldn't finish the commercial. So I'll say break we're gonna go now. So we went and took a break in. And we said we just visit it, and they just kind of told me how that night went, and they knew every single detail. It was amazing how much they remembered in. So it was it was interesting. What did you learn from them that night that you didn't realize before I guess, we you you're not you don't know what's going on? I just kind of learned how efficient these versus bonders are. And and how how time matters. I mean, just seconds matter and in how fast they get to you when they get to you high efficiency are with what they're doing in the techniques. And if we talk about that stuff in football, but they're doing that stuff to save lives and. They were just a little slower off just a little bit. I probably wouldn't be here today. How did that experience? Change your life and your perspective don't take things for granted anymore. Like I used to. I was young at that time and felt a little invisible to be honest with you. I mean, how the hell do you get hit by car one cross-strait it, and I know the guy was three times the legal drunk and he's floor of the hit me. But you know, just being in that position. I'm a little surprised just being in that position. But I just I don't take things we're going, you know, approach life with the purpose in thank God every day. You never sued the guy. No, I never did. You know, he went to jail. He could have gotten seven years we think he got a year in probation. You know, it's no way you can defend this guy being three times legal limit drunk and running it even stick around Iran and the police condom later, but you know, I found out later atom that he had two daughters and. If you've been married for eight years in hit a nine year old and seven year old and he's never had any priors in. I just couldn't see locking up their father for seven years, you know, in he's never had any prior. So, you know, as it is what it is incredible story and said that commercial was remarkable and people talked about the hundred year anniversary celebration that the NFL had with the wedding cakes and the jumping and the great players, but your commercial was emotional, and real and genuine, and you could see it in the way, you reacted to those first responders is definitely role. Anti thank you for taking the time today. Watch a look in the upcoming draft in the season. Thanks for joining us. And so there is the chargers hate coach. Anthony Lynn with an inspirational remarkable story that he had to endure special. Thanks to Anthony Lynn special. Thanks to the colts general manager. Chris Ballard took some time out of his busy schedule to enlighten us about the colts in some of their plants and special thanks to Browns general manager, John Dorsey who has been very busy this off season making all kinds of moves to try to get the Cleveland Browns back to the postseason really back to relevancy what she's done a great job at doing. Please. Join us again next week for another edition of the Adam Schefter podcast as the draft. Creeps closer. We will be joined amongst other guests by the LSU linebacker. Devon, white the Florida state defensive end Brian burns and a whole lot more. Thanks for listening this week. Everybody have agreed week. Wouldn't tracking the domestic dust bunny? You come to find them hiding under wardrobes next to Las socks don't move to suddenly or they'll scurry off. What's utley fascinating about the dust money is that although they are not actually sectioned creatures when they hear the Kyko not only saves people money, but also has a ninety seven percents customer satisfaction rating. It's obvious to them. You should switch because. Yes. Switching to Geico is a no brainer. Oh, no. It's the dust bunnies. Only natural predator on the long dust on his run along.

He walks out the the the frustration and the situations that may go on in his life but he still shows up for himself he walked out and guess what because of having a good positive spirit. Good mental health walking running run. Walk run whatever you choose to do is good for your mental health. Guys it will keep you sane in the midst of all the craziness that happens so because he was able to do that now. He's recognized that his job and got got promoted to be a manager and that's awesome. That is so awesome. Hunter out proud of you last night. So i was going to say one hundred for last but i have this picture on my phone that have not posted on social media and this just touches mar heart like crazy so we had a new member. Several weeks ago showed up to the group. Her name is janet. She has a daughter named violet and she has a daughter named caroline and janet suffered a little setback. She was pushing a little heart. Her ankle swelled up Janet also is working in the nursing field so sometimes she has to go to work and missed a tuesday and so forth and because she had to go to work she actually came out to the group and did some working out on her own Before the group got there and she was really pushing it sore ankle kinda swelled up a little bit. Come to find out she really had an injury from sliding into. She's so competitive. But you wouldn't you would know you will not know at first but i'm shooting baskets one day and i'm just shooting by myself. Janet is within the you know eyesight. Say john you wanna shoot around issues like sure. So she's netnam my gosh. she's making more to me to find out. She was on a basketball team. Growing up in school did two years of college ball. So when i got a chance to work out with her on She came out. She couldn't run. She came out on a thursday and she walked but When i got a chance to walk with her a little bit. I found out that she was playing softball over summer and kind of slid into home. Play kind of tweak. The ankle a little bit and it's still been given us some issues. Whatever but when she came out on this thursday she bought her two daughters and her daughter. Violet has interest in during her first five k. And we you know is going to take care of. Everything are going to give her a nice team shirt. We're gonna pay for violence race when she does sign up very sweet family and what i loved to is that her mother janet's mother rebecca canes at a group and. I'll tell you what you know. I was expecting rebecca so we got three generations of women here. We got rebecca. We got her door. Janet and then we got rebecca's grandchildren. And janet came out with flip flops on and so i'm not expecting her to do any runner right. This woman is out there killing it now. I see where janet gets from that. That drive and violent was just i think violets like Twelve years old or something but her form is chefs. Kiss like runners kids boy. It was so perfect. So th this this beautiful. I love that type of stuff guys. So i have a quote that chris ballard shared in or online our private online accountability group. She posted this. And i think that is a perfect segue to this week's topic. She posted many awesome. Runners will never win a race. They put in every effort but haven't got the pace. The bodies aren't athletic. Still they run for miles the simple joy running shining in their smiles. If you feel average at times lose your way. Remember your inspire me. Every single day and that is a poem written by alistair jones. I love it very very much. Because that's was beautiful about the running community and why the running community is a plays you may want to hang out and so runners at times get a bad knee. They get a bad rap right. You may know runner right now. Do they get on your nerves or do they inspire you do. Do you feel as though that they're always talking about their accomplishments and is kind of like you know doesn't inspire you or does it get on your nerves and so when we think about the running community it is such a support group so once again runners may get a bad rap because they talk about their accomplishments from time to time but they're excited about it because they remember where they came from and now they're able to. Do you know a fast time or get this distance. Once upon a time they may have told you have cancer. You only got a certain amount of time to live. But yet then they started taking up eating better or good positive mindset along with the better and then make sure they wake up in the morning and go for nice job and things start to change their lives and so some people also may feel as though that runners are judgmental because once again they may be talking about the things that they have in may make you or i feel that you're putting me down because i'm not that fast or i can't go that that length but again guys. I being a part of the running community ninety five percent if not better are the support of type as you see right here. That the that the quote or the poem that i mentioned many awesome runners will never win a race. They put in every effort but haven't got the pace. The bodies aren't athletic. Still they run for miles the simple joy running shining in their smiles. If you feel average at times lose your way. Remember you inspire me every single day. I was reading. Jeff galloway's boko mental training one time and he was touching on something similar right. He was saying that some people are afraid to run down a busy street because that person is wondering what people think of them they may be embarrassed but on the flip side. He said that no people are inspired when they see you out there. You may feel as though that you're out of shape. Excuse me you may feel though that you outta of shape. You're heavy you're fat. Whatever you wanna title or put that onus on yourself but many people that are in the running community when they see you out there they know that this is something to be proud of you out there making that effort and they love it. They have sparked inspires me to want to go. Put my shoes on and get out there and do my miles. How do you guys feel. Please please email me on this topic. How do you feel about the running community. Have some runners put you off for the bad tasting mouth you know saying let let me know you find the running community have are you new to running and feel as though like you. If you're neutral running please do me a favor goal to that apple podcast rate. Leave review and You know maybe comment on this episode. So go to the website in show notes will be the blog associated with this podcast where you can go on the bottom and make a comment there too. And don't forget. Email me at costa juries. Jima dot com. So here's was some people in the community on my social media ferns and Sometimes i take the question to social media friends That i did. I don't know sometimes. I'll ask my local members other times. I'll take it to this running motivation group that i belong to in. I'll ask a question and see what comes back. So one person says and this person says support no matter. How fast or slow. You're that's right that's right. As a matter of fact. Gimme gimme one second guys. I'm actually go to pull this up because My friend rhapsody. She did not put the names of who said this. I like to give them shutouts When ed when people comment all right so let me missy. Ivanka fine this real fast for you. Guys you mean second right. Withdraws you running community okay. So that was katie. Katie she says support no matter how fast or slow your constant encouragement from fellow runners and exercise so katie loves the excise running in the first place and then she appreciates when she's in a event whether it's a five k. ten k. Half fulmer. Whatever it is. You get constant encouragement. There's nobody ate noyer. Nobody's trying to trip you up. No one's being so competitive that they want to see you know as runners in this community. We all try to pull each other along one time. I had a superman shirt. One and i had something written on the back. I forget what it was right and The person's soul me slowing down. And eventually they caught me and he just gave me a little encouragement. I said come on superman. I was using you as my pacer with that me. So they're watching me and they are trying to stay within reason right. Sometimes you'll see someone pasha with a cool shirt or some nice leggings or something. That's bright that catches your attention. And you're like okay you know. They look like they're running in mind zone my pace and this sometimes you'll see them pull away they might. They might go too far. You won't believe this. I just saw clarity. Contractors trucks is right by as crazy so you use that person as a motivation as your pacer but if they start pulling away you might have to pick somebody else so this particular person. Actually you know ran up on side of me and made that you know. Hey come on keep it going because usually you as my pacer eventually that person just left you know what i mean. He had pick somebody else as a pace. That's all i'm saying. So you see how supportive everybody is. amy Or this person says arm. Solo is their name. That's what they play here What they appreciate about the running community or doing Events is the memories metals. Some people join a running community and they because they wanna get a metal they wanna they wanna have something in their hand. That's why that's another reason why i enjoy running community as well as doing events and races and stuff because if i did just homework video at the end of the twelve weeks of completing a home workout. I don't really have anything to show for it. But at the end of a twelve week five k. Training program or restarting another half marathon training because we go through seasons so if say for example you have marathon runner and maybe the half marathon is in the four. If you don't do another one until the spring you gotta get star. You gotta get ready for it again. Sometimes i have a saying call it. Stay ready so that you don't have to get ready. But even myself goes through ebbs and flows. I could run all year round. Which i do know okay. I got october atlantic city half marathon coming up october sixteenth. And then i am signed up for my very first full marathon disney in january so and then the new year will be right january twenty twenty two then i'm gonna potentially. I haven't decided yet. 'cause i might peel back off half marathon training as much and focus on my five k. Distance so i might be you know dropping some hints here but if i continue to run and do another half marathon in april. That's only four months away right so you know once again after. You're done these trainings for yourself. You pekingese things on the calendar and you set in your goals and your sights on the upcoming year. It's nice to get the metal in your hand. It's nice to put the metal on your neck. You can walk around town with it especially at disney. Al finally get the mickey mouse medal for doing the full marathon. I've been to disney twice got to half marathon medals and donald duck. Like don ba- listen. I'm there from mickey. you haven't come on. who's not there from making. I'm pretty sure. That if i mickey mouse metal mini is somewhere on there as well. They're the stars of the show. Nothing against goofy on us. What what is it if you do. If you do the to have and the four marathon you'll get a goofy metal right. There's nothing against dopey you know that. That's the the five k. ten k. The half the four now. That is what i really wanted to do. However dakota And twenty twenty to the races are like they're so they they sold out really really fast because everything was canceled in twenty twenty one. You wanna talk about a fun place to be when it comes to the running community men. Everyone down in orlando. I had my podcast going. At that time i had all i needed was my phone and anchor app and unlike. Oh you're doing what you're doing a good you do. Dopey challenged and you never ran a full marathon before the microphone right interfacing. They were so gracious and talk to me about their experience and stuff like that if you ever want to go back into our library podcast. You're gonna wanna find. I believe it was the January twenty twenty About destination races. And that's where. I got a chance to talk to a lot of people Charles he has a he loves he always run alone he once again. Everybody has their viewpoints of things. So he doesn't like running with people he likes to be quiet. He's Chris and says i'm not involved in races currently at least so i'd say sharon ideas and experience. So that's another beautiful thing about the running community because there's different coaches there's different styles heart rate training run walk. Ron run straight the fall. The fall method fall. Pull me like so. There's different levels and one size doesn't fit all. So i love how chris owen says that he say sharing ideas and experiences. That's what makes the running community also a special place to be. Let me go back here. some local members of our community such as a matter errors he says i enjoy the camaraderie. Everyone supports each other. Let's see marie. Gary says they support my efforts so much better walking with someone than by myself. So although we're talking about the run community here. I run to the best you. We're all one community. I'll walkers along with experienced runners and the beginners right At this particular time guys let me take a break. Let me go grab some water. And when i come back we're gonna put some final thoughts on this show as well as you are nice sweet announcing it let me take a break business and are looking for a creative way to bring a new customers. Spots are podcast and you can have this spot right here. A thirty to forty second commercial every episode three months for only ninety dollars with most of our listeners. Right here in atlantic county. This will be a great opportunity to bring in new people into your business. events arrested. Email us at coached at g. today. Okay welcome back so before. We put a a ribbon on this episode. Put a bow on his episode. Were let's talk about running to support your local community and so there's so many reasons why a person may get into running mate was to lose weight maybe because they were inspired to run because whether their family members became runners and they seen how energetic they became after taking run in and so they decided to take in so many different reasons. Maybe you had a health scare. And now you're you're you're taking your. How serious right another good reason to ron and join a community is to help your local community so many race directors are putting on events to raise money for schools to raise money for foundations right. And then that gives you the inspiration and so when the running community comes together for great 'cause it makes it even more special so i've had. I've had the opportunity to help put raises on for the south jersey field of dreams and in banana able to see. The parents appreciate the efforts that was put into that race to have been able to meet. Sandra who her son. Anthony listened to the podcast is Anthony deals with autism and he was a active participant of south jersey field of dreams and then to find out that he's also part of phases for autism and been able to have some impact with isabelle moscow from faces for autism in the different races. That i have put together for both south jersey fulfill the dreams and faces for autism Every single one of those community members people that come out says to support those causes again rather walkers or runners it. Just take it just brings. You're running up to a whole another level because you know that you're doing something that's going to have impact for those children's lives and also for their parents because when we support our community and help the children of those disabilities you're also taking some pressure off the parents who whether they are single parents or You know have a home. We're both parents in there. The pressure taken off the is dramatic. So that is another reason why running communities or cool places to hang out you get to meet some awesome people get to learn their stories. I encourage people to always show up to the race early and stay late. Meet somebody new. Maybe you was running next to that girl or that guy you know and then you found them after the race and you get a chance to find out their story to tell you. The stories is what continues to drive. Continues to drive me when we talk about Also had a chance. Let me go back to the good causes the jasmine tea bryant brighter day five k. Guess what guys. That's back up and running that five k.

#359 Catching Up & Hawaii

"Green, two, one. Oh, my goodness. Good morning. Good afternoon. Whatever it is for you. I hope you're having a fantastic day. My name is Zach shomler. This is strong opinion, Sports episode 359, welcome. And we have a ton to catch up on, let me get this just out, right? Right out of the way down. The first topic today is not about sports. It's all about me. It's a life update. And if you don't care and you want to skip it, no problem. You're totally free to do that. I hope you have a wonderful time, listening to the rest of the show, but you have been warned. I want to start today by talking about my life in about me. It's been about a week and a half since I did a show and I put out some big news on Instagram. Want to cover all of it but I also get a first of all, I apologize. I'm really sorry. It's been over a week since I did an episode. It's been much longer than I thought it would be. I was not planning on taking that long of a break. In fact, I thought During the break, I was going to able to get something done although looking back at what I did. I mean I moved so I was moving and like I'll be able to record while I'm moving and I'm urinating exact going to why I thought I could do that. But man if anyone out there is upset or wanted a show where a content is was kind of frustrated. They didn't get anything recently, I do apologize. It was not my intent. I took six months off, I was slammed. I was moving and it kind of weird. Unlike often you know for example I went to Hawaii on vacation in February and I still was writing every day I was doing about two hours of writing and keeping up with the news cycle and it's a lot of work to like I know it's it's fun but it's a lot of work to stay up-to-date with the new cycle. You got to write every day and during the six days I took off to move. I didn't write at all. I didn't I barely checked my phone. I was so busy and I got back for you know I moved and then came back home for briefly and it's like I was buried under this pile of oh my gosh, there's so much to catch off. On and it's taken me days and days and days and I've watched, like, I don't know what's up. How many round one? NBA playoff games were there, watched every single red, one NBA playoff game except for, I've got one series left off the Lakers series to watch. And, you know, in fact, this morning, I, I guess I'm recording this today, but I did a second episode last night and I was going to record more of this episode has cut it off. I said, I'll do that later this week because I want to put out what I have. So anyway, I don't want to sacrifice the quality of the other stuff. Well, it might be a short episode but I have some stuff I want to talk with Julio Jones will talk about college football, but I do want to start with some really, really big news. I put it out on Instagram, my fiance and I are moving into a one bedroom apartment in Hawaii and obviously I am very excited. It's my favorite place on planet Earth. I it's it's a lifelong dream of mine. I thought it was something that would never actually happen at home. The when I was a kid, I was like, I don't know how you can't live there in a. I have a job now where I'm very mobile. I can go live anywhere and now we are downsizing. You know, we're living in a four hundred square foot apartment and one bedroom. But the one bedroom is going to be a the studio for recording. Like, you know, we if you walk into our apartment, you have a kitchen on one side and a bed on the other, cuz the the foil living room where he normally would have a couch in a TV and stuff, that's where the bet is. And I'm very lucky to have a fiance who You still willing to deal with, you know, to go to go to Hawaii since like, yeah, we can sacrifice a ton to make it happen cuz we both want to be in Hawaii. And so I just I'm really excited about that in a small, but to me, it's and to us, it's totally worth it. And and by the way, this is kind of crazy. I couldn't I set up the internet a couple of days ago. I got spectrum and the internet off five times faster for less than half of the price of what I pay now and have now the Fastener you can have here it's terrible and I pay through the roof. So to go somewhere else with your internet that's cheaper. I'm like that's a Mac can't believe that and we were considering going to Florida we were considering going to I talked to a Utah for a while. And then we got to a point where like, no, we want to go somewhere warm. We want to swim often. I love swimming. It's my favorite thing like activity to do and we were going to go to Florida where like you know we gotta go to Orland. We just can't we can't make Hawaii happen and basically we realized that Florida is like half of what we want. We don't actually want to be in Florida, we want to be somewhere warm with good water and took the more we did the math more. We looked at like it's really not, I don't know. I just we figured we if we do everything we can to make it happen and really sacrifice and really cut back, we can make it happen and so long week, we packed all of our stuff into not one. Not two, but six different suitcases three for her three for me and we moved and so we're not shipping anything. This desk in front of me with anybody want to buy it, I'll sell it to you. I'll sell you my TV or couch. It's all we're getting rid of literally everything. We got over there, we bought a bed and I have a plastic, what do you call it a month? Like a plastic fold-up table, which actually I started doing the show on a fold-up table. So I got a full up table, that'll be a makeshift desk for a while until I can get a new desk. Now, eventually buy a new one on the island to make a really cool Studio set up. But to be clear we're 95% done. Moving with move pretty much everything we're going to move to the island. We're going to Oahu and all the hard stuff is done work, done moving. We're living here with very little have like you know I like five recording shirts and I have some shorts and one pair of swimming trunks and enough underwear to get me through a week off. Like and that's about it. I'm getting rid of everything else we have and I we got there, we got to the island we're moving and we you know, we have your six suitcases plus a backpack. So I guess 5,000 items full of stuff When we get to the apartment and it's just filthy, it's just like, and it wasn't like cockroaches everywhere and dirt ever. It's just dust. And they did a remodel of the apartment, which is a great, but they didn't clean up afterward. And so there was dust and dirt and paint spackle everywhere and there's a wall, a little, have a video where you're cleaning the water. Like, oh, that's what the color of paint is underneath the black water. Like, wow, that's crazy to me and so I thought maybe I would record while we were away like, you know, we'll move, I'll get set up and then I'll just overdo it a show on the fly. Like I thought maybe last Monday I'd record about the the Azerbaijan Grand Prix and talk about some basketball and we spent six days just scrubbing, the walls literally, and cleaning and vacuuming and we had 24 hours with a U-Haul. So we had one day to get all the stuff to furnish the apartment we meeting. Like, and I'm not talking just a bed, it's like you gotta get a pan, you gotta get silverware, I got everything you need for an apartment. And it was a marathon, it was six days of craziness and so now, I'm back as I record, pretty clearly you look around it. If you're watching a YouTube you can see like I'm in the same room. I'm recording in the same location as before because I haven't actually moved my studio. Yet I got about a month, tell them to move the studio. I got a lot of stuff, I got to sell a bunch of stuff. I got a kind of finish up here. Do you have the old landlord? A lot of stuff to finish up here before we leave Washington where I live. But again I want to say all the hard work is done and at that I guess I figured I knew that moving was gonna cost me about a week of time. I didn't know would be a full week where I didn't even have any time to check my phone. Really but I figured I'd lose a week and I was like, I'd rather lose a week in June than in you know, end of July early August when the end of a preseason happening at a bunch of stuff. So like I said, all I got left to move, is my studio equipment. I'm very excited, the camera, the computer. Got a skeleton crew here like barely. Yep, Close. I got literally just my studio and there's I mean we have an empty living room right now. It's we have a couch and a TV I guess but like we got rid of a shelf and we got rid of like our kitchen table song On and we just have there's nothing if you walk out your through house. You're like it's like it's like weird and full of boxes and half empty so I don't know. I just want to take a moment. I guess to say thank you because Man, it's been a dream of mine for years and and I, I always as a kid love who I I did the math, very early on. I'm like, that's a bad choice to live in the world based on, you know, the infrastructure, the people who I met through football, a lot of Hawaiians and they were so kind and welcoming to me and then, you know, the weather, the every, the beauty, the brewery and I, but I was like, I mean, like fifteen. I was like, Hawaii is the best place to live in the world and then I kind of let go of that dream cuz I'm like, I'll never be able to make that happen. And so doing the math and looking at Florida, realizing forward is more expensive and I would have thought and and then realizing like we actually got a crazy deal on our apartment. We got an apartment basically it's cheaper month. Then it would have been for us to move to Florida or Utah or stay here. I, I think we're always going to look back on the apartment. We have now and go, I can't believe we got what we got for that price. Now, it's under renovation, it's not perfect. But I gotta say, I given how low were paying I thought for sure would be like, cockroach-infested and full of bugs and it actually wasn't, I couldn't believe I was like, I walked in going where the road just cuz I've seen that video so many times where you walk in. You see a video and took people walk in their apartment and there was like one of those black dots everywhere. Oh, they're bugs and I expected that we didn't have that. And so I just been very fortunate and very excited. I want to say a big big thank you to all the people who Watch and listen to strong opinion Sports. I am. I'm so grateful. You guys have changed my life time and time again, with I have a career now, I talk about sports for a living wage. That's unbelievable. And so fun and so crazy. And I just keep, I got an amazing fiance. I've got cool pets. I've got it just like, I keep making moves and trying to pursue my dreams and wage. That's all possible because of the show strong opinion Sports which I started in a college dorm room. I guess about the same size, you know? It's crazy. Like I always felt like my stomach feel like dorm like a dorm room, my studio is really big and my my studio. Now in Hawaii is probably the same size as my dorm room used to be. And now I have the fact that I have two rooms one to sleep in and wonder record and it's still an upgrade compared to when I started the show. So I just I can't say thank you enough. The new place is going to be a great spot to record content and to make good stuff and the studio is really cool. I have a couple ideas of how I'm going to set it up and we got the other show flawed humans, where I think this is going to be on like a loveseat. I'll be at the desk and we'll talk that way, instead of her to desk and he'll be a little farther away, it'll be kind of nice and I just to be able to work and go to the beach. That's my rhythm. I'm a I'm an introverted person. I'm not really. I love my family. I'm not that disappointed about not having to go to family get-togethers any more. I'm kind of like I just I really I love to work. I want to be at my desk every day and I want to take a lunch break and go swimming and that's the routine I want every single day and so I just man I I I'm so happy and I'm so thankful and you know, I've always wanted to live somewhere where I can feel proud of it, you know, I I grew up in the Portland area and it's just, I don't know, I I don't know yet. I I'm excited to go to Hawaii where I'm like, man, this is a place. I'm happy to go home and I'm proud of and I can tell people like, I live there and it's awesome, you know, listen are making this massive change and I gotta tell you, based on my experience, there's never a convenient time. It's never easy to make any kind of big move particularly across the ocean. It's always going to be difficult. It's always going to be hard, but if you're a person who wants to do that. Don't be afraid to take that step. I encourage everyone. Go after your dreams, I surely am doing everything I can to pursue my dreams and my passions and so I encourage you do not settle and go live the life, you've imagined I just oh man, as far as Hawaii goes. I'm coming with nothing but respect. I really, really I first of all, I may not just between you and me, I guess now, everyone cuz it's public eye Hawaiian culture is something that I, I love. I mean, I, I just, I really admire and respect that, and that's why he's very special place. It's my favorite place on the planet, and I would like to be a part of helping. Keep it so special and keep it so nice. And I like the fact that it's very remote and very removed. It feels like a different country. When you go there literally it doesn't feel like it's not the mainland, it's a different place and I like the time difference. It's actually I think going to make content more easy cuz like in for example Monday Night Football is at 2 p.m. and like oh yeah. Yeah, that's awesome. I can't wait to like have lunch and then Monday night football is on. And guess what? You wake up at 7:00 and games have already started. And you can just watch em, I DVR literally, every single game in the NFL schedule, so I can start a game late fast-forward through the commercials no wasted time. And I just for me, Hawaii's more than a Beach, Hawaii is not just palm trees and sand. It's a place that I it's a community. I want to be a part of and I can't tell you how crazy it was to be, you know, we went to we were going to all these places buying when you're buying a bed, and you have a rug, and you have like, pots and pans and silverware, and you're checking out. T. Clearly know, you're moving there, like, you're not just some tourists. And so they were so welcoming and so many people went out of their way to help us get a good deal or do this or do that in every stop. I went to was people just being very welcome page kind and I hope I can positively contribute to the community of Hawaii. Now, I'm excited again. I said it a minute ago, but I'm really excited to be something that I'm proud of. I grew up in Portland, Oregon. I didn't choose Portland and I I'm going to leave it at that Portland's, not in my home. Doesn't feel like home and it's so cool. Again, like walking around our street, you're like, we chose this page where we want to be in its location. We picked ourselves. It's very, very meaningful. And I just want to say, I'm so excited for the future. I'm so grateful and I cannot say thank you enough for the people watch and listen to The show. I mean, you guys made that possible and so I spent like, what is it 13 minutes now, talking about Hawaii. But it's a, it's a big deep passion of mine. It's something I've been working very hard on, like, oh, offseason has been trying to make this move happen and you wanted to go somewhere and figuring it out and it's been juggling like crazy. So to have pretty much all the hard work done. Like, all I got to do now is pack my studio into a suitcase. Need a plane and I'm done moving. Is amazing. And so, I just can't say thank you enough. I love you guys. I appreciate you so much and thank you. So, very much for being part of making that happen. Now, I do want to shift gears to football there. There's some big news that I gotta cover that happened while I was away. I'm going to really quickly put on some got Burt's Bees lip balm. Many people realize it's hard to talk by yourself because you have no natural break when you're in a conversation. Other people are filling time when you're talking to yourself in a room. It's just you for an hour and there's nobody else does no break for your lips. There's no break for any of that. So while I was away, Julio Jones got traded and you know, the star wide receiver was traded to the Tennessee Titans and it's old news, but I was allowed out of town. I was busy moving and I guess, really? The truth is when I sat down at my desk after the fact, I got back from six days away, I sat down at my desk and looked at the trade details, like I knew each other but like oh what did this team get for him? Basically. And I looked at, oh, and I guess I couldn't believe what I saw that, the to get Julio Jones. I had to give up a second-round pick and the fourth round pick. And that's it a second and 1/4. So the Atlanta Falcons got a 2022, second-round pick, and a 2023 fourth-round, pick off the Tennessee. Titans got not only Julio Jones, but they also get a 2023 sixth-round pick. And so I, okay, Julio Jones is thirty-two years old. It's an expensive contract he's on. So I get that. You know, it's, it's high risk. I guess cuz you're trading for an expensive. Place is older. But Julio Jones is incredibly talented, really good, and the fact that he had a package together with a sixth-round pick to make the deal happen made me go. Wow, nobody, there's no nobody values Jones. Apparently. So what I looked at the trade-in, well first of all, number one, good for Tennessee, good for them. Their offense is now terrifying. I don't know how you defend them because they now have a Joe Brown and Julio Jones at wide receiver. Oh yeah, by the way, they also have Derrick Henry at running back. What you can't. If you stack the boxes. Stop. Derrick Henry play Man, coverage, you got a problem. You can't, you can't defend them downfield on on defense. So I, I guess the obvious winner of the Julio Jones trade there for is the Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill. The dude is getting support I'm really excited for him he's better than people realize. I think what I love about Ryan Tannehill is his ability to make plays when it matters. Most he's not flashy. His numbers are amazing. Saying, but he, he executes at a high level. It makes good decisions and he's really good on third down. He's really good in the Red Zone rant and Ales Better Than People. Maybe I should do a film analysis of that handle that actually sounds kind of fun and and I'll just I'll have an open mind. That's my opinion of Ryan. Daniel, we'll see if the film back setup, that's what I've seen in the many games. I watched them play. But I said, look, I really wanted the Titans passing game to take a step forward and develop after watching last year. This move. Is it trading for Julio Jones? It's happening. I think wow. Okay, Tennessee is going to take a step forward on offense. They were already a playoff team. I felt like they needed to evolve their passing game. This is the move they needed to make to make it happen. That's wonderful. Now, here is the loser. Of the trade, in my opinion, it's either. I think it's the Colts really but it's also the cold and maybe the Ravens where you have a situation where again I understand I've said it before but I'll repeat it now Julio Jones is thirty-two years old. He's expensive but I really wanted the Colts to make a move and go get Julio Jones. And I was very disappointed that they didn't make that happen. A ridiculously good and if you're a team that's on the cusp of a Superbowl, your clothes Julio Jones would push you over the top and get you over the edge and the Colts have a quarterback Carson. Wentz is coming off the worst year of his career. God who needs all the help? He can possibly get, he's got a lot of support already in Indy, I was like, man. You you add Julio Jones to that? Indianapolis Colts offense. Oh my gosh, they did not move here. Here's the thing, though. When I saw that price, you know a second round pick and a fourth round pick. And then in fact the Falcons had to package a sixth-round pick just to make the trade happen to like we gotta give Tennessee a pic to do not just 2/4 to a second and fourth it's also a sixth-round pick with Julio Jones to make it happen. It tells me that clearly this was the best offer Atlanta had a hard time getting rid of Julio and I found that surprising just that 32 NFL teams and there was only some that could actually afford him but there were more teams that made a better offer to get Julio job and part of that's like for example the 49ers didn't make sense, they could afford him. People like the 49ers should go for make a move or Julio Jones. And I was kind of like, I don't know why they would do that. They're not as close to a Superbowl as a team like Baltimore or Indianapolis. But why didn't the Colts make this move? Why do they? In fact, allow Tennessee to make it and I know the Colts have a first or second-round pick tied up the Carson, Wentz trade, it's a conditional pick or if he does really well. Then India's to send a first-round pick to Philly and I think Carson is going to do well, and I think the Colts are going to have to send a first-round pick to Philly but all Julio, choose the second round. Pick in a fourth round. Pick, you're telling me in D, couldn't make that happen and no one can say well the Falcons didn't want to send them to Indianapolis because they're not in their conference, they're not in their division. In fact, the Colts and the Titans are in the same division. So I I feel bad because I, I love the Colts GM, Chris Ballard, and I offered him, he must know more than me and it's not the end of the world that the Colts didn't make a move for Julio Jones. But it's a trade, they could have made happen and it feels like you left. Something on the table. Where if they come up short next year we're going to look back and Go Hmmm. My thing even better with Julio Jones cuz they would have been easily. And again, here's the thing, not only did Indianapolis, not get Julio Jones. He also went to their rival off the Tennessee Titans, who they play twice a year. Maybe you might put the Colts might play Julio Jones three times. Next year, if the Colts and the Titans, both make the playoffs and they play each other so long and you can easily argue that Tennessee after making the playoffs two years in a row, Are closer minimum to, I think it's only two cuz I think they made the playoffs or Ryan Tannehill. Two years ago, they beat the Ravens. And last year, they lost the Ravens. But my point is there a playoff team who's now another step closer to a Superbowl? And so not only did the Colts not get Julio he ended up on their division rival. If Julio Jones went to San Francisco, I would be less worried about the Colts losing this trade and say, well, okay, but now that they sent off to compete with Julio Jones but to not get him and after playing multiple times in your division, that's where it's like, oh, that's a, it's a double-edged. That's a really. It's a stick and it's a dog, it's a double-edged sword, it's not good. And so, the other team I thought I really wanted to make a move. I didn't, I'm not as critical, but I really wanted the Baltimore Ravens to make a move for Julio Jones. I mean the Ravens have other problems to solve their offenses awesome, and I wanted to see Julio Jones, catch the ball from Lamar Jackson. I'm like Lamar Jackson and Julio off. That would be a really, really fun Dynamic. And now the Ravens do have two younger Savers, Marquise Brown and Rashad Bateman the former first-round pick, plus the added, you know, Sammy Watkins. They have Mark Andrews tight dead. But last year Watching Baltimore, the consensus was for me. Their passing game needs to take a step forward and part of that is Lamar Jackson their quarterback needs to take a step forward and Men Julio Jones would have helped make that happen. And the fact that it they didn't do that as weird to me and I'll go oh it's a missed opportunity that's unfortunate that that didn't happen. And so you know I wanted more from them are the Colts are trying to revitalize Carson, Wentz, career, Julio helps both quarterbacks and the fact that the Ravens and the Colts didn't make up for Julio, you know, it's just it's worth asking where it was Baltimore. It's worth asking why didn't the Colts make this trade? Why do they allow their division rival to make the truck instead? It's just, I don't know. Now I will say of all the teams that Julio could have gone to cuz they're only a handful of teams that could actually afford him. Of all the teams he could have gone off Julio ended up on the team that needed him the most. It's a great fit. Tennessee needs to have a better passing game and now they will, you know, they they have, I like Ryan Tannehill but I want to see a step forward. They run the whole really well but there were times and like all your kind of a one-trick pony. Now again I go back to how do you defend Tennessee? You can't stack the box cuz if you do, they can now beat you vertically in man-to-man coverage. So, good luck against with any defense playing against Tennessee and the Titans play, the Colts two times this year and the Ravens might play the Titans. They played him two years and roll in the playoffs. I might get that game again. And and I just hope that if the season comes to an end and the Ravens and indy come short, you come up short, I hope they don't regret not making a move for Julio Jones. If they're closed and they don't win a Superbowl and they feel like they left everything on the table. I'd say there's one more thing you could have done, you could have traded for Julio Jones but again I am I feel like I'm overly critical here. I'm not trying to be, I love Chris Ballard. I think that I'm excited to watch both Baltimore and Indianapolis. It's not the end of the world. And the times were the best fit for Julio Jones. So I'm very happy for them and I just couldn't help acknowledging. That price seems very low considering the impact Julio Jones can have. Now I sound silly cuz people are going to say, well, clearly he wasn't good as team is so bad, but A team. That's a receiver makes a small impact. If your team is awful and you make a small impact, that's not enough. But if your team is really good and you make a small impact, that's a Super Bowl. That's nice. See Harvin on the Seattle Seahawks couple of years ago where Percy Harvin did almost nothing and then in the Super Bowl was phenomenal. Enrico making play after play after play a guy like that can put you over the top when you that's, that's the difference between an AFC championship and a Super Bowl is one player who like that, to commit key players in critical moments. And I think Julio is going to be a lot more than just a guy who makes a couple plays next year. He's going to be a big focal point of a Titans offense. And so, I just want to say, I think the price was really low. I'm surprised no one made a move for him, and I'm wondering if it's going to come back to haunt Baltimore or Indianapolis. Okay, I want to go to patreon. Randy wrote in with a question on patreon about college football. That's something you can do as well. Let me pull it up. This is what Randy had to say. He said the college football playoff is considering expanding to 12 games. What are your thoughts on this? Also, what would be your ideal playoff setting? Should we just get rid of bowl games? Altogether a question mark. So, first of all, I would not get rid of bowl games all together. They're still valuable the teams, like, Tulane, Liberty, rice, like really small schools who need the exposure and need the money. But it's also true. I mean I've been very I have not been shy about sharing how much I hate Bull games, they're awful. I think of the Georgia Texas game a couple of years ago when I just looked uninterested. Georgia didn't want to be there and these bigger schools, that have aspiration of a national championship when they get put in the Poinsettia Bowl, they're not excited about that. The hall. Hey, I know you wanted to win a National Championship, but how about the Holiday Bowl and you're like nah doesn't do anything for me. I don't I couldn't care less. And it's bowl games just are not as a fan of football me I don't get that excited about them. I watch Like John-Boy. Media puts out his break down every. Once awhile, there's a crazy ball game that has a wild finish and I go, oh, I should watch the breakdown, but for the most part, unless it's a big high-level game with a good matchup, I'm not going to watch it. I don't, I'm not, I don't get that moved by a baseball games, I just don't care. I care more about the regular season where there are higher stakes and the game feels more meaningful. Now a 12 team playoff I got solid. I think that's for me. Kind of exciting personally if nothing else other than the fact that it's news and it's change. And any kind of new thing in sports is like, oh okay, I'll watch that. But I will. I do want to say that the outcome will be exactly the same. We don't need to have a 12 team playoff because if you're not one of the four best ranked teams in college football, you're pretty unlikely to win a National Title anyway like we're never going to see the number 10 seed pod like a like Coastal Carolina. It's never going to win a National Title that's okay but my point is I don't know that we need them included in the playoff at all. Now there might be a team like a fifth ranked team or a a sixth seed like a let's say Florida who was really good last year but they lost Alabama head-to-head and therefore didn't get into the SEC Championship game but might have been better and maybe Kyle pets with a plate of what was in a meeting with bowl game, a team like that an SEC team or one of these, you know, really big teams that maybe has one loss and has a bad game. They could come out of nowhere, A fifth or sixth seed to win a title, but for the most part, you're not going to see, you know, the outcomes are still going to be the same in a 12-team playoff teams, like Clemson, Alabama, Ohio state, they're going to remain dominant, But here's what I love about the new sorry, the potential proposed. So it's it's the committee is considering it the idea of a 12-team college football, playoff. What it's all about is that it would replace many of these meaningless bowl games. That are they just don't have any, you're not playing for anything, that that's the thing. Here's what I mean, when I say it's meaningless, it means that you're not playing for anything other than like bragging rights or you work all year. Telling yourself, you're going to try to win a championship and this is why the smaller schools care more. They work all year saying, we want to win a bowl game but Georgia isn't working hard? All summer. To win the points, edible Georgia, has their mind set on a national title game and when they find out they have no shot for a national title and they're playing in the Holiday Bowl, they don't care and I don't blame them that much cuz you worked hard for this. And this is your weird kind of point you sidenote. And I don't want to sound. I don't want you, I feel like I'm making college football player sound entitled. I went to Washington State. I had friends who played college football Washington State. They went to the Holiday Bowl in San Diego. It was a good time. They had it was a cool trip for them. A lot of those guys are never going to play in the NFL so for them it was a cool trip. It was a cool experience. They got to see the the naval ship there. They got to go to like Disney World and have like a Disneyland and there was a lot of fun stuff they did on that trip. That's my point. But for people with that are focused on winning a national title, it's hard to get excited for this. So what it would do is instead of having these meaningless bowl games, it would create more interesting, more meaningful games with really good matchups. I would think too. On the way it would work is at the top four ranked or the, the conference winning teams that were the highest-ranked at the end of the season. We had a first-round bye in the college football playoff. So, you would have. So after that then the number five seed to play the number 12 seed, number six would play number 11, the 7th seed would play the number 10 seed, eight would play nine. And so, like last year, it would have been Alabama, Ohio, State Clemson, and Oklahoma would have had a first-round bye in the college football. Playoff then you would have had number twelve, and Coastal Carolina. Play number five seed, Notre Dame Texas A&M would have played Indiana, Florida would have played Iowa state. Georgia would have played Cincinnati, I thought of that. That's interesting. That's exciting. Hey, could Coastal Carolina, Steel game from Notre Dame? That's fun. I think that's interesting. Oh and by the way, Alabama, wouldn't end up playing the 12 seed pod because they would play the winner of the eighth and Ninth seed game. Georgia vs Cincinnati. What when I just never want in college football? And any playoff game scenario is I don't want Alabama. Playing the number twelve ranked team, I don't want the number one ranked team in the country playing a number 12 seed. That's not good for anybody entertaining. That's just a beat down. Yep. Again, Alabama vs Coastal Carolina. Alabama vs. BYU would be terrible. It be over and five minutes. It wouldn't be fun. It's uninteresting. It's not a game. I ever want to watch a complete mismatch. Now, this 12 team playoff with the first round by four, four teams is also interesting because you know round one would have four games, maybe one on Friday maybe 2 on Saturday and then 1 on Monday. Or if you do it at New Year's you'd have like one on Friday and then one on like three games on New Year's Day or three games on a Saturday depending on how you structure it. So that sounds kind of cool and then you took the second round to be for more games. And I like that because for games is manageable to watch in a weekend. For someone who works. And, you know, not not me at my job, a sport, so I can make it happen. But someone who works a day job has a weekend off. If they wanted to, they could feasibly commit their entire weekend to watch and games and watch for games over the course of a weekend. And that's not a crazy thing to answer. It's all day in front of your TV on Saturday, maybe leave it on on Sunday you can bring whatever part of the game. It's interesting, whatever, but having one, two, three, four, five. And then six different games and weekend. That's too many, it's hard to track that. It's hard to follow that many games. For people who have real jobs that are not Sports internet talk, show hosts, right? Like I can do that, but my friend who's an engineer can't do that. That's that's not feasible for him. He loves sports but he's probably going to skip at least two of those games cuz he can commit all this time but if games are overlapping it's just not it's not a good mix. So to have round one out for games around 2. As for games around, 3 has two games and then log Where's the title game? I love that. It would create good matchups and meaningful games. That's great television. And for the record, I guess it's important to say this is not going to happen until 2023 at the earliest but it's in talks, it might happen. I'm crossing my fingers. That's what I'm rooting for. And I gotta say, it would be cool to see smaller programs. Maybe steal a game from a bigger heavyweight college football program, a u.s. UCF, Central Florida, beating Auburn or beating LSU or you know, that Boise state of Oklahoma game with the, the, the trick played a hook-and-ladder and then the Statue of Liberty that those kind of moments are moments, we could get from this. That would be kind of exciting where you have the 12 seed, playing the 5 seed, maybe they upset one of them. But in the end I do want to be clear. Mostly you can add more teams and we're going to have some fun moments. But remember that even adding more teams, it's still going to be dominated by the SEC Ohio State, Clemson Alabama, these Blue Blood traditional programs to get the best recruits every single year. They're still going to dominate and win titles. So just don't expect a lot of outcome change, even if we add more teams. But what it does do, Is creates more meaningful games where teams that maybe won't win a title, still have something to fight for and you'll have less people opting out like Kyle Pitts. The tight end of Florida last year, who didn't play in the bowl game, cuz he's got to worry about the NFL and isn't playing for anything in the bowl game. Like, if you, if you skip a playoff game that looks really bad, in the eyes of the NFL, you're like, oh, you're not committed to winning a championship, but you skip a bowl game, the Poinsettia Bowl, nobody cares. So, having meaningful postseason football games, it's a big deal. It's a good idea and I love it. All right. Wow, that was Jesus like 35 minutes in a row of talking. I'm going to take a short break coming up, we'll talk about the MBA we'll talk about Formula. One will talk about IndyCar and later took a really good ask Zack segment. My name is extremely are going to take a short break. I will be right back. Oh right we are back hope you're doing very very well. May I want to make a point to say that if you're not watching the NBA Playoffs, you were making a really big mistake. It's phenomenal television. I mean last night, Kevin Durant had 49.17 rebounds, 10 assists, he really elevated the Nets to a a win and then a 3-2 series lead over the Milwaukee Bucks, you know, it's good drama to wear off, you know, James Harden was playing hurt. Kyrie Irving is out with an ankle injury, so Kevin Durant was, you know, uplifting that team. And it was, oh my God, it's just an amazing, like, incredible birth. 4 minutes to watch last night. So Nets bucks is really competitive. It's great TV. You have the Atlanta Hawks and the Philadelphia 76ers that's they're tied to to, in this series and I think a lot of people were not expecting this to be a as close of a series, Trae young. The Hawks young star is very quickly, becoming one of my favorite NBA players. There was an awesome serious between Atlanta and New York and the the New York crowd. Oh dude. He was the villain in the garden. I mean it was just this really fun back and forth. I loved it. And I know phili had multiple chances to win two nights ago and game for where Philly had a late lead by 4 and then they allowed the Hawks to take the lead. Then they had a chance to tie the game and get the game-winning shot. They had, they missed that opportunity. They had the ball with like, sixteen seconds left and they missed that shot. And then another opportunity for a buzzer-beater, they missed that shot. It was like man. Just squandering opportunity after opportunity to win and I gotta say it's just cool to see Atlanta doing so. Well, I mean it's been given awful forever and I look back to the Luka doncic trade and people were like, man. You know, Luke has clearly so much better. You know, it with hindsight last year and now we're seeing the the Trae young move. Trae Young's paying off two agents. He's leading his team and just I love the whole thing. It's awesome. The Clippers Jazz are tied to to Kawhi, Leonard's hurt. He might be out for a long time. Just keep her eye on that, you know, the wage orders Jazz series. It's really cool. Like LeBron is out of the playoffs. So you have, there's no LeBron James. Unlike I know, it's been a couple years since the War years were good because of injuries. But there was a situation where I felt like every year was LeBron and the Warriors. And this year, it's Devin Booker, Trae, young, Kevin Durant and so many new Different phases at the Forefront of the NBA playoffs and I just it's awesome a highly recommended. If you're not watching the NBA Playoffs, you should be. It's really, really outstanding TV off. Let's shift gears to form of the one about a week and a half ago, we had the Azerbaijan Grand Prix Baku and I was moving, it's been really hectic in my life. So finally, I get a chance to cover it here today. I'm really excited and one of the most interesting Parts about this race was the lack of presence from, I guess, lack of impact from. It's not that they weren't present, it's it. But in the end final result, Maxwell's. And did not finish and Lewis Hamilton was not in the points. So, you know, Max and tire. Failure did not finish the race then later or two laps to go. It was Hamilton ran wide on a racetrack start and went off into the runoff, so you had both guy's not finishing the points. And it just the battle for first was kind of held off for a week or like oh okay. Things will stay where they're at, everyone else. I'm closer to them, but Lewis and Max did not extend their lead over everybody else. and I got to say, it's kind of weird to say this, but I I'm glad Louis had trouble to, you know, I was afraid that, you know, Max got I guess Max got lucky where Max had a did not finish a dnf and then Louis still didn't take advantage of. It was kind of weird and interesting and I I'm glad for that. If, if Lewis does get an advantage over Max and reclaim the lead and form of the one, I want it to be in wheel-to-wheel racing, I don't want it to because Max blew a tire and didn't finish the race. Therefore, automatically Lewis gets like twenty-five new points over over max. If that makes any sense. I know I acknowledge Max got lucky and I am a Mac fan but I'm just glad. I want to see that done right off of Lee on the track rather than because of weird stuff. That who knows? I mean, Pirelli in the tire and the Pirelli did an investigation, the tire popped because it's really Pirellis fault and any time I took me like Pirelli a tire company does an internal investigation of course they're going to have that investigation come up making them look good and I don't want to dive into it. That's really nuanced complicated stuff there but without Max. And without Louis, there was a Podium with Sergio Perez with Red Bull winning, Sebastian Vettel got second for Aston, Martin and pear gas. He got third 4, Alpha Towery. You're like, oh man, what a refreshing different Podium. It's very cool and the race at an awesome finish with lap. You know, that 46 Max verstappen crashed after a tire failure month and ended up, red flagging, the event. There was even kind of question, like, are they going to finish the race or two laps left? What's going to happen here? And so they paused the race. They cleaned up the track, you know, they took Max's car off and wash it away and, you know, I think part of it part of why they're red flag, that was simply because it's also good. You never want to finish a race under caution where everyone's slowed way down and pack is not real racing to finish the race. What they did was say red flag the race and we got a full restart. So two laps to go, they brought the pack back together. Have everybody sitting the starting blocks and it was amazing. The battle for third between Charlotte, Claire. Gastly. Lando Norris was pushing behind them, occasionally up into fourth passing shower, Le Claire for two laps Pierre gasly and Charles Le Claire went back and forth and back and forth. Passing each other in the NPR, one and got him, but it was wonderful racing. It was so much fun. And Sebastian, Vettel got second, he has his first Podium with his new team, Aston Martin at school. Also, very encouraging. Where You Go? Hmmm battle. Finally got a good car and maybe Aston Martin is making strides and out. Clearly, they are making a lot of progress with their car and off. Vettel had a rough year last year with Ferrari. The team that the car was never, what Sebastian Vettel needed. Kind of the first time in a while, Sebastian Dallas got a really good car was last week. Like, oh back, oh, that's awesome. Good. And if Aston Martin can give Sebastian Vettel a good enough car Seb can win, he's got all the skill. He just needs a better car and it'd be really cool. If asked him or an awful themselves into the conversation with you know McLaren and Ferrari to have those three teams Ferrari McLaren and Aston Martin. All battling for third, I love that thought. Maybe maybe a Ferrari can even Elevate themselves up into the conversation for first place. I don't know, but I like that the more competitive racing, we get the better it is for everybody. Now, by far the biggest winner in Azerbaijan was Red Bull. Just the team there. Guy ones, Sergio Perez, And it allowed Red Bull to extend their lead over Mercedes in the Constructors Championship. So red bulls and first they have a hundred and seventy four points and Mercedes is in Psalm 148 points. And Sergio Perez is really turning out to be exactly what Red Bull needed from a number, two driver. I mean, he he's it's not all on Max for stopping a they have a number two driver who can contribute and push for podiums and win if Max doesn't finish. Hey, Sergio one. It's really cool. That's great for Red Bull. That's what Red Bulls been missing for. The entire time. I've been following Red Bull, the last couple of years and then to add insult to injury. Mercedes had bouts, were both dots in this race. Finished 12th. He started 10th. He just never had the pace. A question is, maybe something is wrong with the car, but his Pace was bad flat out. He started in tenth, he finished and 12th which is awful for Mercedes powered car. You're like, what's, what's wrong? What's going on? Who's in qualifying too? And I think I want to say that when valtteri bottas had a bad pit stop in Monaco and the tire wouldn't come off. There was a moment where after that race Toto Wolff, the Mercedes team boss, came out and said, hey valtteri, bottas Not Innocent here. He went out of his way to make a point. Hey. TurboTax pulled too far forward or maybe it was either pulled too far forward or didn't pull far enough forward. It's one of the two is he was in the wrong position basically when he stopped the car and they're like I was on down tree and it was interesting to go huh he could have just blamed the mechanic he didn't want to. He chose the team over voucher e and it's kind of pushed Valkyrie out a little bit of like huh. And I want to predict now that was the beginning of the end that was the beginning of us. Starting to see the unraveling of Mercedes and voucher Botox relationship. They want more from their number to them to replace him because Red Bulls really challenging. Mercedes, there are rule changes coming to F1. The Tide is rising around Mercedes and for a long time, they haven't really needed. A number to have been like wage Louis can carry us. Louis will do really, really well, when almost every race and and voucher botas can do something and contribute a little bit and be part of us winning. They've never needed an impact from the truck driver will now, as red bulls challenging Mercedes, and the other teams are starting to get better. Mercedes needs a number two driver who can contribute and score points and do more than voucher? He's done recently. So I I really think sooner than later, you're going to see George Russell replacing valtteri. Bottas as the number two driver for Mercedes. It's not good. I mean the car had problems, I know that, but to finish June 12th with a Mercedes powered car and qualified tenth. I know the card problems, I know, but it's not the first time we're Mercedes has been wanting more from their number two driver. They can't stay. Put Mercedes, has to make a change to improve and they're also not guaranteed to have Lewis Hamilton for much longer. Who knows how much longer Luke Walton is going to stay in the sport. We don't know. Big retired anytime. So, at some point, Mercedes has got to be prepared for that moment and start grooming the next guy. Valtteri bottas is not the next guy for Mercedes to be their number one driver. If George Hamilton retired, you would want George Russell, ready, waiting waiting in the wings to be kind of groomed and be prepared, but you want to hear of him as the number to First, to get him used to the team and then have a more seamless transition from Lewis Hamilton to George Russell. I don't think Lewis Hamilton's going to retire any time soon. I don't know why you would he might but I don't I don't know why he would that make sense. He's he's got plenty of years left driving, he's been dead forever. But my my point is that the problem with Mercedes right now, Is there a number two driver? It's a big deal. They're going to have to make a move at some point and I think I love how after Botox I like a story is you got divorced and got he's got a new relationship. I like off his Instagram story like I like the person the driver's coming up short and at some point we're saying is going to reach a breaking point. I think they already have where there are thinking. Now, the wheels are turning total was not dumb. It's like, oh, we're going to have to make a move and replace this guy. By the way you kiss, no. 7th, Azerbaijan, good for him, solid points. I was happy for the rookie outfit. Our driver. That's pretty cool off and coming up on Sunday. We have the French Grand Prix. I can't wait. It's going to be fun to watch Formula One man. There's nothing like it. I watched other Motorsports. There's other things off of other motor sports. That do things very well to me. Ferrari is a sorry Ferrari, it's another f word form of the one. Is just my my favorite racing Sport and racing series in the world. Now I do want to mention another one though. I cover form of the one and I'm a big fan of F1. And as a result people often ask me, I'm an American. They're like what what do you think of Indy car? And IndyCar is a similar racing series with single-seater cars and I've always had some interest in IndyCar, like I'm a, what's that? Okay. And it holds my attention for a little bit. I follow Colton Herta on Instagram like it's cool to see his life. I think that racing drivers and Americans kind of cool from California. But there to be clear, there isn't the same star power with IndyCar, as there is in form of the one. From the one is Rolex and Aston Martin, and its European. And they go to Monaco. It's wage. There's more Prestige. And there's clearly more money in form of the one. However, on Sunday, the F1 race, the Canadian Grand Prix, was canceled, due to covet, and travel restrictions and all this good stuff. And so I was like huh. I saw this deep desire to want to watch racing and I'm like, well how can I solve this problem? And I I went to my DVR and I was like, okay, I got the I got Indy car on my way to have, you know, the Indy five hundred. There's a doubleheader in Detroit and I watched all three car races and one day, I was on a plane to watch one else. Like I'll watch One race, see how it goes. And I watched one home and I liked it, and I watched another, and I watched another and I was like, oh, wow, and I ran out of time. It was, I mean, that's like a whole day worth of watching TV, but I just was like, It's really hit the spot. It was phenomenal, phenomenal racing. And now I will be honest. I was very skeptical going in because especially the Indy five hundred, the Indy five hundred thousand is, it's a bunch of left turns. I'm like, I don't, it's an oval-shaped. Track, how is that interesting? Cuz I really like track diversity, you know, change of elevation and get lots of turns and hairpins. And I, I love that stuff, and there isn't a lot of that. Obviously, when you race it, Indiana Indianapolis Motor Speedway, who won me over. I was not expecting to have a good time and I did the Indy five hundred, I watched Helio Castroneves when Indy five hundred. He's a, it's his fourth time winning that race, the 8506 tied with three other people for the most Indy five hundred victories of all time. And I watch and I felt bad for Scott Dixon where you know Scott Dixon ran out of gas because they closed pit Lane and you know somebody crashed in pit Lane so we couldn't get a pit stop when you needed to ran out of gas and therefore lost was down a lab and was the favorite to win and didn't win and the Indy five hundreds back and forth like lead changes and passing and the final twenty five laps were phenomenal is really, really good TV. And again, I prefer I'm more diverse track. But when you have four guys in the mix, you had pilao Castroneves patawad. Synod. Pageant on pagenaud is a deep silent. I don't know passion my gut says passion know they say it so quickly on T. I go passion. Odd passion know, I know kind of Rhymes do but it's a shame to me that when you watch IndyCar should be more popular, it really. And I don't know if it's his Motor Sport isn't more popular in America and I don't know, but yep. A good product, IndyCar. That's a, it's a well-run organization. That's a good product. I really like it. By the way. It was wild. Any 500 had one thousand? I'm sorry, I guess. Let me see us again a hundred and thirty-five thousand. That's one 35000. 135k people in attendance. That's the biggest wage, you know, get together the largest gathering since covid-19. And I watched that race, then I moved on to Detroit, Detroit had two races back-to-back, one on Saturday 1 on Sunday was a doubleheader and I watched Marcus Ericsson when the first race on Saturday. He was a he was a former F1 racer. He dragged for Alfa Romeo and formula. One first of all, happy for Marcus Ericsson. It's it's his first win in Forever. He finally got a team good enough to win in Formula One and so unbalanced that you just can't walk. You'll never see a guy like Marcus Ericsson win a race cuz his team is so bad, so good for him. That's awesome. And then raised to on Sunday, you had paddle award one and you know, two more great races and Detroit. And so we had its kind of crazy Indy car has had eight thousand different races this year this season and seven different drivers have won those races. So it's like, you know, paddle award is 1 to everyone. Every other race have been won by a different driver. It's amazing. I cannot commit to watching every single IndyCar race. I don't know how much more me to watch. I I'll tell you this though. Whenever I can watch an Indy car race, I'm going to do it because it's great TV. It's it's really competitive, it's close, it's fun. I really like it off and there are things I like more about IndyCar than F1 and there's a better way to say that. I think, let me try that again. There are things that Formula One. How do I? I'm going to leave all the things. I I think it's important to hear me try to get it right there. Are things IndyCar does better than form of the one. I'm like, man. It's more competitive. There's way more parity. It's, it's so much more competitive with the amount of people who actually have a chance to win every single race and you see more passing and more Wheel racing, and the costs are lower, things are more standardized. So there isn't this crazy budget Gap, where Mercedes is spending six hundred fifty million and half suspending, a t, like Tom Never going to depend on when you do that and it's beautiful. And to the untrained eye. Someone like me who I know a lot about cars but not like everything. It's hard for me to go. I know that you can I watch video, I know the differences between a Formula One car and an IndyCar, but my fiance, she doesn't know she watches any card goes. That's good enough. Like she can't tell the difference between an IndyCar and a form of the one, so the to the untrained eye, it's still exciting that go. I think any cars actually go fast or because because a certain specification. So I I hope that form of the one comes more like IndyCar actually. It's my favorite series. I like the stars. I like the people. I like the teams. I like Europe. I like that, it's Global. But when F1 adds the budget cap I go, hm. Maybe they can be what I'm curious, which is really competitive and really interesting. And there's teams that kind of any, a lot of people have opportunities like to have a, a race where at the end of it. Four people are in the mix to win. I can't remember the last time that happened in Formula One. I can't I can't. But that happens in IndyCar and like, wow, I watched three races and like every time it's competitive it's interesting close. And and there is one thing form of the one does better. That I I'm going to have a hard time getting passed, its pit stops pit stops and IndyCar. F Wants More Money, More glamour, more star power sharing more, Instagram, followers that kind of strange. But for me, what sells me Formula, One over Indy car is the pit stop. Where f one has a 20-person pit crew pit stops are literally two seconds. I saw Red Bull had a 1.9 second Pitstop last week and Azerbaijan Indy car has only a six-man, pit crew. So long. They also have to refuel during the race so they get their very different. It's like a 15 16 second pit. Stop and that's man, that's a big and that's not just that's just how much you're sitting there. Let alone all the time. Lost taking a pit stop. It's clunky and I I really have a hard time at the refueling. It's like this is so slow. Why can't we just have bigger fuel tanks? Why can't God? It's it's hard for me that now I want to understand the I don't understand it. But IndyCar refueling technology must be like amazing. It must just transfer, massive amounts of liquid very quickly off cuz they do refuel incredibly fast. I mean, it's not like it's nothing. It's just when you compare a pit stop in IndyCar to former the one it's different, it's nuanced but I just I think one is more impressive and more elegant like. Wow. That's really cool. But IndyCar, it's still great racing and you really gained my respect. I just when I watched it. I'm like huh. Yep I've really been missing out for a while and I would actually love please let me know if there are If there's any documentaries or docu-series or anything, kind of detailing and documenting IndyCar the same way, you know, form of the one has drive to survive. That's how I got to know. Formula one was like, oh, I learned about the people and the teams and the narratives and the storyline. There's anything like that for IndyCar, please write in to let me know. Cuz I that sounds like incredibly fun to watch and to learn and listen to what's happening in IndyCar and learn about the sport because IndyCar after three races watching, I'm very impressed and they have my attention. All right, I'm going to take a short break coming up, will do ask Zack really fun short segments, my name is extremely are going to take a short break. I will be right back. All right we are back over doing very very well. It is time for ask Zack. My favorite part of the show. It's where I answer questions from the audience. In case you don't know how it works. You may forward slash you give a dollar a month, you can give more if you want to please do it. Literally helps pay my rent. I'm very patriotic as well. Stable income. I have I love it. I'm very grateful but a dollar a month gives you access to submit questions on patreon. Now if you submit a question and do not guarantee to read your question on the show, my only guarantees off at every single question and submission with my eyeballs and then I picked the top couple and it read them on the show. Question number one is from Devon off and says put yourself in the shoes of John Lynch. That's the 49ers general manager. Jimmy G comes out and plays at an MVP level and brings the 49ers Lombardi Trophy. What do you do regarding the quarterback situation? Do you continue to build around Trail aunts or do you extend Jimmy Garoppolo? This is an extremely hypothetical situation considering we basically know Jimmy won't play at that level. But it's a fun little situation. I think about given how much draft Capital was given up for Trey, Lance. So I have no idea what you do. I guess, my question is, does Jimmy Page them to a Superbowl and does Jimmy? G win an MVP or both? Is it both or one or the other? Because he's LED them to a Superbowl before. And Trent Dilfer won a Superbowl and Joe Flacco won a Superbowl a minute, I'd be afraid of being the hold and the Jimmy Garoppolo, if you gave me a new contract, the same way you are, you know, the Ravens were brought into Joe Flacco but Jimmy G wins an MVP. You gotta keep him. I mean it's you can't move on to another guy in Risk. It's the same reason why the Packers are probably not can move on from Aaron Rodgers, like they moved to an unknown. When you have clearly great, that's stupid that you just don't do that. Can you play Alex Smith? And you got Patrick Mahomes wait in the wings fine, but if Jimmy G is MVP level good. You don't replace him. It's just I don't think you do. But I am an Australian says cheese is more talented. You invested a lot. I mean it's but you can't let your expectation guide. You have to let the better player, be your guide that makes sense. I don't know. I hope this happens though, it'd be crazy to see what they do, if Jimmy G. I think what what I want is Jimmy G to leave them. Do a Super Bowl, not the MVP exam. BP means you gotta keep the guy, but if the 49ers win the Super bowl, next year and Jimmy Garoppolo plays all year long. Do they then move on to trail and I don't know if you if you wins an MVP, you just extend Jimmy Garoppolo and that's what you do. But if they go to a Superbowl and he's like solid man, I don't know. I mean, that's a really, really wildly interesting conundrum and I, I don't know what I would do. I would love to see that scenario unfold and I respect John Lynch a lot going to NFL Hall of Fame. Now as a player, great GM. I'd love to see what he would do. Dylan writes in. He says, if you could no longer eat meat from one animal chicken pig, cow or seafood, which would you choose? And I assume and why. So for me, it's a, by the way, one and seafood is not an animal to be clear, but I'm in a except T the inclusion of seafood cuz it's it is kind of its own chicken and dark meat, you know, chicken and then red meat and then Thursday. So, what would I choose? I would choose Seafood. Easily. Actually, I love Seafood. I Love Sushi. Fish is phenomenal. However The amount of plastic and fish is terrifying, and it's alarming and you're like, oh, there's, there's a great couple of documentaries on Netflix. Go, watch them plastic ocean. I see spare. See that, where you like, Oh my God. I don't, I don't want to eat you just if you eat fish, it's almost feels like you're eating plastic. I mean, I, I've pretty much cut fish out of my diet and I'm going to, I'm moving to Hawaii and I my fiance is going to win a sushi, but I don't, I don't eat tuna. I'm really the more I delve into the ingredients of food. If we got, I got this gum, just come right here, simply gum and it's called that because he could hear the ingredients Organic Raw cane sugar, There's there's one, two, three, four, five, six, seven ingredients. And I'm like, and no weird chemicals. So the more I've Doven into like, what's in our food off or extra virgin olive oil isn't actually olive oil. The extra virgin tag at the beginning, allows you to add a bunch of other additives. So it's like, it could be 70%, random chemicals, and not at all boil. My point is, The more I've Doven into what's in my food more, like I should eat just salad and go to the farmers market and I, I'm fortunate enough. I can afford to buy you a fresh food and not need to a cheaper. I don't know. Is it really cheaper to buy just fruits, vegetables? I think it's actually I think it is a my experience, I go to the store and when I buy like just fresh stuff it's actually like often. I've found with my grocery trips to be cheaper my spending less money, I don't know if you add it all up, but I my health matters to me and I'm like I feel like I'm becoming one of those weird Juice La people but I'm like, I don't What's in my Food Matters? I don't want plastic, I don't eat weird chemicals. I want to in Sardinia in Italy, the people live really long and a lot of it's cuz they don't eat processed foods and the more I I watch documentary after documentary about health and about the world and it all scares me. And so for me, I'm going on this crazy right now. I apologize. But what, what food group would I cut out? I already have pretty much cut out, fish entirely. I don't, I'm never going to go out of my way to eat fish ever again and not from the ocean that Seafood because I don't want plastic. I just want to eat straight plastic and that's what it feels like. When you eat a lot of these fish that come from the ocean, Okay, Davis writes any says Zach, if you had the opportunity to interview four people one coach, one GM, one rookie and one veteran player. Who would you choose for those slots off the GM? I would interview his Colts GM, Chris Ballard, he's a great general manager. He's my favorite in the NFL. He's phenomenal. He like his ethos his approach, he's clearly like phenomenal at picking players like, I felt really bad earlier in the show was critical of the Colts for not making a move for Julio Jones, but I'm like, I realize like who am I to criticize like he he clearly knows more than I do. So Chris Ballard. I'd love to pick his brain. I think he'd give good answers. I'm going to be interesting, like, I'd love to interview Belichick but the problem is that if you interview Bill, Belichick ever going to get a real answer. So I took the coach, I would interfere, for example, I would interview Jon Gruden because even though my favorite coach in the NFL is Matt rhule. The Panthers coach the Raiders coach. Jon Gruden, would be fun, would be exciting. He'd be his media training. He like gets excited and he just talks probably more than he should, but I love that Jon. Gruden loves football and I would kill the interview the guy because it would leak out if they give you great answers, an interesting stuff. My first question would be John. Why do you love football? Can you imagine when he would say, can you imagine like why? Hey, anybody in Vegas? Interviewing Jon Gruden, please ask him that question because it's a phenomenal answer. So I just I want to interview Jon Gruden in a heartbeat. I want to interview, Chris Ballard people's passion, really comes out. I like interviewing people that are clearly passionate about what they do. The veteran would be Tom. Brady like the Buccaneers quarterback. Tom Brady is the one veteran player. If I could, I would he would give me good answers. I know that cuz he would just share. He's been really very open recently moved to Florida. Like he's been liberated from Bill Belichick, I would love to interview, Tom Brady, and maybe someday that'll happen. I might my fingers are crossed maybe when he's old and dying, he'll make time for me. I would love that. The rookie player I would want to interview is Vikings rookie quarterback, Kellen Mond now. It's weird. I'm people are like, why not Trevor Lawrence? Why not? Justin Fields office, or Mac Jones, or the reason why? Kellen Mond is a guy would want to interview. It's cuz I believe in him and I I think talking to him would confirm a lot of the things I believe about him. For my look, this guy is the truth, he's got this killer attitude, he works incredibly hard and I think it'd be fun. He's clearly very passionate about football and I think it's an interview. I think I could get really good stuff by interviewing, Kellen Mond. And it would be able to answer some of the questions I have in my head. Like, why do you why this, why that? So, I, I don't know, Faith example. I really believe in Keaton slovis, the USC quarterback, and getting to talk to him and do an hour interview with him, made me feel even better about the guy. Oh, yeah, he confirmed my belief. He loves football. He's well, thought-out, he's smart, he's prepared. Like I was like, yeah, let's get his kids, awesome. So I'd love to interview. Kellen Mond Connor, writes in, and gave this, by the way, Davis had a very strange question to Connor. I already read Davis's question, so I went with Connor. Here, Connor says, hey Zach, huge. Congrats on the Hawaii move. I'm so happy for you. He said, I'm still made up dog. And it must be a British thing. I don't know, was just wondering what what the local sports scene is like where you are. Will you be able to go and watch anything cool. I said, question Davis Davis said being out of the office might be hard to watch NFL games live. Will you attend some Hawaii? Rainbow Warriors games? First of all, thank you David. Thank you Connor. Yeah, I'm living my dream. I'm really excited about the first of all, I don't plan on going to any games in in 2021 I money's tight. I just made a big move. I don't have like the luxury of going to Tampa Bay to wage. I could I could feasibly financially possible right now and I also to be very honest I prefer watching games from home, like there's no better setting than on your couch or I guess I watch at my desk, my desk, my own food, my own drinks, my notes in front of me when you take notes at a live event it feels weird. People around your like what what is this guy doing job? Now, would you as media? I did the XFL games from the Press Box. They invited me to the Press Box. I got to take notes there when your media it's fine. But when you're a person going to a game, I would want to take notes and and then I felt weird. Like, I went to Cincinnati to watch Tom. Brady, play the Patriots and Tom Brady, his final year in New England, watched him play in Cincinnati. December 2019. And it was I was taking notes and it was a little bit weird. There were people like now I can handle it, I don't really care, but I just, I know that I'm an introvert. I don't like crowds very much doubt. I think the best way to watch football is at home, you can mute the commercials. There's, there's a lot of wasted time when you go to a game if you think about like, hey, I've ten hours today to watch games and I cover the antenna from a really, you know, I A 10,000 feet away like a whole, I cover the whole league at once and so if I go to one game that's six hours of my life, probably between Transit and food and this change that. So I miss out on other games and I waste a lot of my day where I got and then try to watch other games and then cover them the next day, it's possible. So now, I will say in 2002, I would like to go to the Midwest probably cuz it's all so close together and get an Airbnb. Make that my, you know, my mobile command center will call it cuz the fun marketing term and record content on-the-go and say, hey, I'm just, I'm going to sacrifice this week. I'm going to this game. I want to do that someday, and I'll do a record podcast from an Airbnb. Some day, I got a pretty good mobile set up now. Back to use it in Hawaii, and then I was so busy moving and I'm not recording anything there. But for the most part, I don't have. I'm not that interested in going to games. I think it's better to watch games from home if you're trying to cover them. But I will see, I'm open to the idea. Will I go to any Hawaii games? Yeah, I will go to one or two. I got offered to work on the sidelines and I said, No Doubt cuz I look, it's just not, it's not what I want to do. I want to sit home and watch, Alabama, play Oklahoma. I want to like, I want to, I want to watch other stuff and when you go to a game, you're so limited with a nice time, but I'll go to, I'll take a good. I'd like to make a point to go to the Portland, state Hawaii game, Portland State is playing at Hawaii this year and I've got a lot of friends who play on the Portland State team, they'd be very cool to watch. Name is Alexander my buddy, play quarterback in Hawaii, where I live, like, that's kind of cool. I'll go to that game, but for the most part, I'm not going to go out of my way to go to Hawaii games. I'd rather honestly go to there like a basketball game. I'd be fun when the seasons off some time to chill. Gotta go to Hawaii stuff, and have a good time. And my buddy, Aaron wakamatsu. And I will go and he's a, he's a cool food writer, he loves he loves Hawaii. Sports will go to that, but yep. I'm not a big fan of going to games, I feel guilty saying that, but it's true. Joshua writes in Joshua says, congratulations on the move. Oh I missed one. Zac wrote it. I am so sorry Zach. He's got the same name as me spelled with a K but whatever he says hey Zack with Julio Jones being traded made me incredibly sad. Have there been any trades or retirements it made you feel emotional? Keep up the great work. I look forward to every one of your shows, so yeah, for me, I was so disappointed. When Philip Rivers retire. Philip Rivers had more gas left in the tank and the game didn't want fill up anymore. And I don't blame and there's so many young quarterbacks. And there's so many people available to play, quarterback in the NFL and the Colts wanted. I didn't cars and so they moved on from Philip Rivers. But man, I wanted to see Philip Rivers win a Superbowl and he never did. And I I just I Mane Mana, Phillies missed opportunity. I really wanted to see Philip Rivers continue to be involved in the NFL. It's actually that's why it's so good to see Philip Rivers coaching High School football. Now, is he clearly has a love for the game and I thought he probably retired a year or two before he should have salmon. Tony Romo, Tony Romo, gosh man. If Tony Romo had stayed the Cowboys quarterback for one more year may want to Super Bowl. I mean they had this amazing window when they missed it and part of that was Dak, you can't say that. But I thought Tony Romo was the best quarterback, the Cowboys had and they chose deck anyway. Like oh no. Oh man, so Tony Romo. And Philip Rivers, really disappointed me. That's why Matthew Stafford, go into the Rams, it's so exciting. Because Matthew Stafford got rescued early, Matthew Stafford, as an opportunity to revitalize his career. And to show, hey, I've been really good for years, but I was locked away in Detroit. Like, Philip Rivers was good for years, but he was locked away in San Diego and then in the end with the charger, so, like, you can be a great quarterback in a bad team and hit a ceiling every year. And I man, Matthew Stafford, go into the Rams, getting good organization, a good team, hey, we might not see, I might not feel a sad. Mm Matthew Stafford retires, cuz maybe he'll retire with a Super Bowl or really good runner to win a playoff, run in a victory or two like that's nice to see. So I missed opportunity. That's what Philip Rivers felt like it hurt and it made me sad. Good Joshua writes any says, congratulations on the Move. Zach, what was something during the move that completely blindsided you and that you did not see coming but you had to deal with once you fluent on the flipside, what was something you meticulously planned out and were prepared for when it happened. So I packed very well. I packed early. I had all my stuff in, suitcases, ready to go? I was really like, I knew exactly what I wanted to bring, I knew exactly what I want to get rid of a shred. Like you've probably got rid of like, eighty percent of my stuff in that movie. I was like, I don't want clutter, I don't, I want to be very minimal. I don't need a lot of stuff, and I packed all my stuff and was like, haha freedom. I when you have very little things, it's hard to make a mess. It's easy to manage stuff and I'm really proud of the way I packed and the way I pair down my entire life into like three suitcases. I was like this is awesome. Now with a couple more cuz the studios got to go to but probably not the curtains from the curtain rods yourself like that, but I was really proud of how I packed for Hawaii fitting my entire life into 3. Suitcases is What I didn't expect was a mess, the apartment we got was remodeled, so they didn't clean up afterwards at all at all, there was dust. There was dirt, it was awful. It just just not good at all, and we had to clean for days and days and it just where you did. You ever Swiffer the room, like, use a Swiffer WetJet, and I guess we have the wet mop a guess is what it's called, but it's just black. And you, I just got swiffering the floor and switching the forwards with just black and black and black, like, there's so much dirt in this room. It's, I believe when you're like, scraping paint flecks off the, the, the wood floor because someone painted, but didn't put down anything on the floor, to protect the floors of paint, splatter everywhere, and you had to ship it off off the wood. And are we have a deck? Thank God, we have a life, it's concrete and it it was also black. I think someone had smoked back there for years and so there's just like you ever like you wipe the inside of a wall of a smoker's house and it just like a layer of like dirt and grime off. Up from the smoke collecting on the wall. We had that and I just, it was so dang dirty, but it's clean. Now, I work my butt off for six days. Scrubbing on my hands and knees, literally off. And it's it's beautiful now. So I wasn't prepared for the mess but we dealt with it. Internet though. I man, I one thing that surprised me in a positive way, it was the internet. I knew the internet was fast enough cuz I got like the neighborhood rating but they actually they said when I got them, gave them my address and you go on the website, you type in your address, availability said this, but I went into Spectrum to pick up my equipment. They said, hey by the way, we just upgraded your neighborhood. Like you can have even faster internet if you want and it's for like twenty bucks more month and I was like what? And so I have I have a gigabyte internet of like literally 940 megabytes a second for like nothing. It's a mess. So amazing. Like I can't, I can't believe I'm paying. I'm paying eighty bucks a month for internet. And my 250 I payed cuz I need internet for my job. I'm a 250 bucks a month for like crappy slow internet in Portland where I live and I'm paying eighty bucks four. Five times the speed of light in Hawaii, and like, I don't, that's unbelievable to me, made me so happy. That's that's the best blessing in the trip. Is just like how I got the internet setup and it was like so fast and I was like, yeah, Hallelujah. Brody writes. In interesting question, I had a I thought about it a little bit but it came faster than I would have thought his answer. Brody says if you could switch lives with somebody for a day, who would you pick and why? I'm from Canada loved the show. I picked Jeff Bezos. I want to be Jeff Bezos for twenty-four hours. I get a day and I'm assuming eight twenty-four hours, and I'm spending, I'm not sleeping at all, and spending. All 24-hour spending money like crazy. I'm giving Zach shomler a house myself and buying myself a house and buy myself a farm, probably in Hawaii. And I spent so much money to help people. I'd be like, I don't, I can't believe Jeff Bezos. Do anything to help? He gives away like trivial tiny amounts of money. Like, but baseless really wanted to He could end world hunger, he could let you so much and he doesn't. And it's like why don't what is Jeff Bezos need more money for. So he gets a big swing indicative like waves around. Like, look what I got. I don't get, I don't understand. I get I get greed to some degree like I want a house, I want a backyard, I want dogs. I want I want to provide a good life for my kids like I I get that once your basic needs, you want, you have a house and paid off and you have like enough money for a boat and you have kids, it's like some point. Don't you reach enough where like I don't need more I certainly am hopefully going to reach a point where I'm like, I don't need more and then I'm going to give away lots of money and help people in the community and do stuff like that. I'm years away from that, but hopefully, I want to have a house some day, like, in twenty years, maybe I'll sneak my house. And then the money I was spending on my mortgage all spend to donate to this. I mean, I really have a heart for that Alex Honnold the mountain climber, who lives in a van gives away a third of his income every year to donate. And I would love to, like, I think we're so cool to buy a house and then rent it out and use the prophet not to use, not to use the profit from the rental to give to myself, but to use it to put in a, a fund and then go to like Africa and build a well, or build solar panels. I mean, I'd love to use that and I just, I want to help people if I can. And I'm not there yet, I'm still kind of Getting By, but man, I, it's such a thing that I care about. And so, if I, if I had Jeff bezos's, bunny for a day, I am dude, I am doing so much. I'm spending that money so quickly to change the world and I just can't. It's it's unfathomable to me. I'd love to interview Jeff Bezos. Like what the hell are you doing for money? Like, what's your plans? Yes. Hoarding money for like no reason. When you could do so much to help the world if you wanted to, I just don't get it. I don't understand two questions, left, Alex, right since Alex says, hey Zack, I know you are a big fan of the MLB, but you are a fan of baseball, your dang, right? The MLB has had a big problem with many pictures throughout the league using foreign substances. My question to you is, if you were able to become commissioner, which you would be better, which you would be a better one than Manfred. Yeah, it would, how would you respond and or fix such a huge Scandal? That is becoming larger and larger in the MLB as always. Thank you for all you do for us. Thanks. Alex. Number one, I try to hire John Boy or make a partnership. @john boy John Boy. John Boy is probably the best thing for baseball in here. John Boy media, the guy who does it think of them is Charlie? I've actually jammed them John-Boy, like the person buying that account incredibly kind of credibly, nice, very good conversation. I think I talked to, I think, Jenny O'Brien is actually, I think, I'm pretty sure I was talking to Jimmy O'Brien. It was way before they, they became what they are. Now a wonderful, wonderful human being whoever. I talked to, I think it was Jimmy O'Brien and I guess it's good that Jimmy O'Brien and I know I'm gone off topic, but I'm guess it's good. That John Boy media is separate from baseball because they keep them accountable. But if I was the commissioner of baseball, I'd want to have a relationship with them, that's good. I'd say. Hey, you're breakdowns. You can make money on them and I you guys keep us accountable, but you also send us home viewership. Like I I care about baseball because of John boy cuz he shows me how beautiful of a sport it is and he's good for baseball. I just I saw a comment on YouTube and it's like John Boy, send more for baseball game, anybody in the past twenty years, it's true. Now Alex answer your question, here's how you handle people using foreign substances and baseball you punish them and you punish them harshly, you get a long suspension without pay. You get fines, you don't tolerate it baseball. For whatever reason appears to not want to punish anybody for cheating. I don't understand. I don't understand. You can't, you can't tolerate it off and I great pitching is Awesome. Every once awhile I'm in the mood for like I want a game one to nothing would just beautiful pitch after a beautiful pitch and masterful pitching performance. I watch Clayton Kershaw. Wow. But I also the other ninety 9.9% of the time and I watch baseball. I want to watch home runs. I want to watch runs. I want to watch baserunners. I want to watch. Interesting, fun, exciting, baseball home, and they just for whatever reason. Don't want to make that happen. So Alex hope that answers our question Benz. Got a fun one to end of the show. Been says, hey Zach, congrats on the move to Hawaii love, seeing your story, you're living the dream and we're happy to see that. Thank you, man. I am I'm doing my best, I love lovely. Actually, I got to say Brody run. It said, if you could switch lives to somebody first, when I read it, I didn't read the first of the day part, cuz I was like, and you could switch lives with anybody. Would you do? I wouldn't permanently. I would not switch lives with anybody. I love my life. I'm very happy and fulfilled. So anyway, side note, thank you. Ben says, what are some new movies? I'm looking forward to watching this summer. I'm personally excited for in the Heights and the Green Knight love to hear your thoughts and thank you for your time. So, the number one movie, for me this Summer, that I want to see that it's already out, but I haven't seen it yet as a place to. I think, I think it's coming to like, Amazon soonest. I want to watch it at home. I think theaters are not even open where I live cuz covid-19, but I I want to go home. Quiet place to and it'd be awesome. Now after that you mentioned it. The Green Knight looks awesome. It's got Dev Patel from, I believe. Slumdog Millionaire was no, was it him? Yeah, I think is also Life of Pi gosh. I hope I'm not culturally appropriating. I think I remember the both those movies being Dev, Patel, I believe, Indian guy, great, actor, wage. It's the Green Knight is a story of the Knights of the Round Table, and I love Arthurian Legend. I love any kind of movie. That's the 9th round table. Arthur Robin Hood that kind of stuff. I, I really loved it like King. Arthur, legend of the sword. It's a Guy Ritchie movie phenomenal. Now, this is an a 24 movie. It's probably darker. It's probably more heavy. It looks darker. It looks more heavy, but it looks awesome. And I, I really, really want to watch that. I also want to watch Roadrunner It's a film by by Anthony Bourdain. I'm going to watch out with my Dad. We were both Anthony Bourdain fans. He took his own life, my brother. Who's on that suicides real for struggling, go get help. I'll probably go with, watch out with my dad. I can cry together Black Widow comes out of leave July 9th cuz I looked at the date today, I'm going to drive to there's a theater open somewhere in the Northwest. If not here. I probably is open here cuz we're opening restaurants. I don't know. I want to see that movie with my dad before I leave for Hawaii. I want to see fatherhood. I think it's coming to Netflix. Father would say Kevin Hart movie about a single father. It looks like a sweet comedy, that's probably touching and got some moving moments. I want to watch that and then probably and out of obligation cuz I really don't care. But I'm sure I'll probably watch Space Jam because of LeBron, but I maybe I won't. I don't care. Space Jam. I don't need to cover that on the show, so I guess not, I won't watch it. I know, I don't care but I maybe Space Jam. Which I never saw the original and the new one looks completely uninteresting to me. But quiet place to Green Knight Road. Runner Black Widow, and fatherhood, maybe Space Jam. But guys, took up the trailer for Green Knight. It's cool and go between mean they're a lot of movies. I was excited to come out recently that are not coming out because the cobit, so I'm excited. Movies are like coming back slowly like our we're doing a guys, we can go to bed now. Movies are coming out again, it's getting better. I'd really is it weird that I wanna watch Avatar to. Whenever that comes out, I'm excited about it. I haven't are such a weird generic franchise. I'm so also fascinated by it, I don't know. Can we do watch that whenever that comes out probably in like 20 27? All right guys, that's all I have. I love you. I appreciate you.

So Chris, Cody went into the dungeon and braved the useless sound we will get to his montage of useless sound from the NFL draft and the second. But here's useful sound from the NFL draft. It hasn't ever been done better than Pat McAfee did it when introducing a pick. There was not a stumble. There was not a hiccup. There was no nervousness. There was a guy in full bloom professional wrestler. He'll he's a former punter and he stood in front of Nashville. I don't know if the Colton titans have a rivalry. But they seem to think they do. Right. So they seem to think that there's a rivalry there and McAfee. Among among six hundred thousand people six hundred thousand people Nashville he did this. Halo nashville. I'm not gonna say single word about the Tennessee titans record against the Indianapolis Colts. Because I was a punter. And there's no reason for me to talk about that with that being said we did not punt much against the Tennessee titans. So you probably have no clue who I am to begin. Two years ago. We're not retired from the coats. I retired alongside to greats Robert Mathis in Joe Wright's a couple of months later. I watched the draft Robert Mathis announce to pick Joe rights announce the pick and then in a Ranga tan announced the fourth round draft pick. I was replaced by zoo. Edible. I was done upset about it. Because the Aranka tan was terrible at his job with that being said, the Indianapolis Colts are the hottest team not only in the AFC south. But the entire NFL. They young nucleus surrounding these Stanford nerd, hey, Andrew. Pros drafted last year. Ten this year with the eighty ninth pick of the two thousand nineteen and if L draft the Indianapolis Colts Jim are say, hey, Chris Ballard select future hall of Famer linebacker from Stanford, Bobby. Oh, corre- key. Oh. You like that you liked the last part, Chris, why do you live like the oak Karekin? So so so much because if you watch the video he like points up into the air, he just really land. The land. He knew he had nailed it and sticks. The landing is the phrase Chris was looking for. He is the author of this useless sound montage because he is as you just heard useless. Come to music skinny poem of the two thousand nineteen about draft. Find out who you are in this program, the very highest level. And I think that's exactly what he needs. And that's exactly what he wants. And that's what he's gonna get. This guy's an old soul. The game. His dad raised the play football. I mean, everything about his life is for football. We felt like that was the last piece of the puzzle. Greg Xiang said it best who was his coordinator at Ohio State in terms of his hands and feet being married together better than any player that he's ever coached keeping out at Mex be have a guy who's a pizza. Clayton needs a mold getting bigger has tremendous motor. He's hungry to be successful down at the senior bowl. I thought he had all the tools needed in order to see at a high level in the NFL. He's got movement. Bill Parcells said it best. If you want me to cook the meal. Yeah. At least let me shop for somebody grows. Well, I got bad news for the rest of the teams in the league. The patriots are serious. About continuing to win Super Bowls. Yes, they are. That's the sound of the day. It's brought to you by my computer career dot EDU training for a better life. Everyone loves the patriots riff everybody just draft the next version of the sport, which is just a bunch of six five guys who catch the ball and defend against the bat. Yep. So we've got funniest thing from the sports weekend here. The patriots always sort of just sit that out what a what a blessing to be able to just make whatever players you want. Good doesn't matter. It really is this wide receiver because it was mcshea saying they don't normally take receiver that early. They don't really focus a lot receivers. In case. You haven't noticed he said they intentionally went to get this guy. 'cause Bella Chang loves this. You know, how impossible it is for Tom Brady to have had that kind of sustained success with the patriots never caring much about receivers. Like, it might be the most impressive thing on a resume. That has no precedent, right? The fact that that team doesn't actually get him weapons that we the audience would crave the year he had one they lost in the Super Bowl. Yeah. But he had the season of his life. When they Randy moss. Go. Look at the numbers. If you wanna laugh look at all the you'll see them all seasons, you'll see them with look just look at Brady's resume and enjoy the Maas seasons because they're different than any other season. And they also traffic rob gronkowski. Who? Many would argue the greatest tight end ever. We probably don't think of him when we think about it. Anyone could have gotten him though. Yes. That's how they helped keep him young for sure, but anybody could add and Super Bowls without him. The moss season forty eight hundred yards fifty touchdowns eight interceptions Brady never had forty touchdowns in any other season. It with my coli half an hour ago. What was the quarterback rating for him that season the quarterback rating for Tom Brady? Like look look at the seasons before that one and look at the seasons after that one for Tom Brady on quarterback rating. All right. Let's go a couple of years before he got Randy moss. It was ninety two six ninety two three eighty seven nine the two seasons after eighty three nine ninety six point two that season one seventeen point to the Masihs. Stands out a little bit.

But then after a second child was born he realized the pros were all way better than him. So we'll gave up and buried his high tops in tearful ceremony. But one day he heard that gyco could save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch, which was awesome. Donlevatar? The alley has a bad reputation in general does Ron American history. But on south beach, someone's always that just sitting somewhere smoking a cigarette. You can't go down and Allie around here. Nazi someone's sitting there smoking retains a pulsating Keat from the night before you walked by some liquid like is that water. Yeah. Last night.

I don't think it would be immediately. I you'd contract very quickly right before death several sexual diseases. And then you these live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. We will get to the funniest thing. What's coming into the ESPN inbox there from trucks, Allah Toro who feeds everyone at this network with things to be talked about a whole bleep. Trucks. All Tohru is saying that Todd mcshay is saying the pats rain in the AFC is over. Oh nice. Oh, I feel warm all over. It's all over all took. Why is it all over? Does. He tell us who stopping it. Okay. Let me see here. I've got read some more. But just know that the headline is mcshea colon pats rain in the AFC is over. That's not a qualifier. That's more of a fact sated as more of a fact than greedy Williams or David football gentleman. So that's it. I'll apparently it's video now. So it's not a story. It's mcshea video that is being shared so Mike. I'm gonna send you we'll do funny thing from the sports weekend. But let's circle back around. I'm gonna send you this salad to veto you get the sound. And then we will play mcshea announcing to everyone that the pats rain in the AFC is over. Now, it's it's a somewhat long video. But one of the things he said is the declined for Brady has started just worn Todd that Dan said that about a decade ago, and since then he's won like three MVP's three more Super Bowls Super Bowl MVP's, Dan Senator decade ago when he's had a second hall of fame career. Normally Brady too. But this is yet another day. It was you your knowing the agile. Grantable? We'll confuses why the islanders. For me. I just like to hang little bit throw it a lot. But how about those things do see see? Joe you leave it on these news. The segment was a little fourth pizzas. Did the NBA? Indeed, go, I I haven't looked actually I don't know whether five to four not did it. Indeed, go the very predictable one two three four one two three four on the advancements. I believe so. Yeah. So we're sitting there not talking about hockey, and we are talking about the most predictable results. You can get. Smashing the ball round the puck and Bishop man. The place his time. On that good things happen. You have kids you have little surfer. On the underprivileged rollerblading team. That is if you're not a million that is hockey guy surfer hockey guy far away from the mic. I believe it to be the worst character in the history of this show. And it takes off. But it's all you have is and Chaka bribe. It's all it's in the arsenal of that character, which reminds me. Playing goalie for the ass, ROY. Roy retired. Either way, it's real hang ten shocking. I love that's God's job because it's not pronounced Patrick, Roy. You were. I asked for ROY. It's God's olive behind me with Patrick Roy. Which isn't as bane. Funniest thing from the sports weekend. Pay people. What sport menu laugh hardness he's weekend? This would go. What made you laugh this weekend? Roy that segment that you've been waiting for all your life to show your knowledge showed everyone why you lost your title as black guy who knows the most about hockey anywhere in America. That's why you lost your title right there. I bet you the black guy who beat you in that competition could answer that on just the motion Lee drain right now at watch Saul with this guy over here with hockey guy far away from the might of. Thank you. Hi, hang ten shock is on. Chris what do you have there? What do you have is the funniest thing from the sports weekend? Pat McAfee making the colts pick we've already played like seventeen times. Just check it out on the podcast. We played it twice. It's okay. We can play it again. It's funny. Go ahead and play it. Again might halo Nashville. I'm not going to say a single word about the Tennessee titans record against the Indianapolis Colts. Because I was a punter. And there's no reason for me to talk about that with that being said we did not hunt much against the Tennessee titans. So you probably have no clue who I am to be two years ago. We're not retired from the coats. I retired alongside to greats Robert Mathis in Joe Wright's a couple of months later. I watched the draft Robert Mathis announced the pick Joe rights announce the pick and then in a Ranga tan announce the fourth round draft pick. I was replaced by zoo animal. I was upset about it. Because the Aranka tan was terrible at his job. When that being said, the Indianapolis coats are the hottest team dot only in the AFC south what the entire NFL, they young nucleus surrounding Stanford nerd, Andrew. To grows drafted last year. Ten this year with the eighty ninth pick of the two thousand nineteen and fell draft. The Indianapolis Colts. Jim are saying, hey, Chris Ballard select future hall of Famer linebacker from Stanford. Bobby? Oh karekin. Oh karekin. Ricki? Billy. What was the funniest thing from this weekend? Leshan McCoy upset everybody because he took his son to see the avengers movie. And he was sad by what happens. So he tweeted about it and everybody lost their mind. I want to say can I say what happened? Say I'm saying Thursday, if you haven't seen this movie and you get one week. I am saying it on air Thursday. What happens? Raw raw what was hatrick walks. Us me. What I should have said, what is the funniest thing. Spurs not fouling at the end of game seven great the way this first season ended was they couldn't hear the coaching staff. That's how loud it was Denver played for home court everybody, Mike, what was the funniest thing from the sports weekend. Useless useless. It's all that on Twitter. I'm like, yeah. That is why you play it is. In two thousand nineteen shouldn't all the visiting players have something like attached to them at the coach can push a little zap button. Like, oh, he's calling me. I can't hear him like a little a little buzzard button. Or just know that in every basketball game every foul, and that's that's right that that would work. I saw this on Twitter. It was in the championship league. Which is the the league level below the Premier League. So there's a team in promotion about right now leads United and they're playing Aston Villa and Aston Villa player got injured and usually kick the ball away. And you respect the injured player lead. United scored a very controversial goal. And it started a brawl immediately. It was ugly scenes in this match so ugly that the Leeds United manager had to order his team to let Aston Villa's score a goal right after that because it was so unfair. So you had a manager directing his team to just let Aston Villa? Go. From one end to the pitch of the pitch to the other to score goal. Uncontested? Gamma put on the poll, please at lebatardshow is the reason that you need to get home court. So that lamarcus Aldridge forgets how to play basketball us to got. What is the funniest thing from the sports weekend? A man name Lucas Bates ran the London marathon and a Big Ben Gosden. I saw that that had to be painful. I give believe he did that as rothlisburger. I got I gotta think that that's going to hurt the body in the morning. I saw the video he was actually running more fluidly than Ben Rothlisberger. That's right. Actually that looked like a more mobile Big Ben than the one place in the NFL. Mike the funniest thing from the sports weekend is Todd mcshay announcing that the patriots rain in the AFC is over. What is this? I'm hearing that you actually agree with max Cullum, potentially. And that the New England Patriots subtly vulnerable explain yourself surplus. I mean, what what's the definition of owner first of all and give me this Pacific as to why you feel that way. I never gonna win the AFC east. I believe that thought. Okay. But for the first time ever, I I watched Tom Brady towards the end of last season and started to see a little bit of a decline. Those the first time ever I've listened to people say I can remember they they got he threw five picks against the chiefs years ago, whenever it was like it's over, you know, and that was a joke and a few years ago everyone's ago there, you know, the the run is done but gronkowski, and I know they've won games and playoff games without him. But gronkowski was was the guy for Brady Brady's started to decline a little bit. I mean. You look at the numbers, and they're they're still really good. And most teams would love to have it. But I see a little bit of a decline in him and they lost trae flowers. They lost a lot of good players in the off season. So for the first time ever, I look at this patriots team and say, you know, I don't I don't expect them to win the Super Bowl, and I don't expect him to get to the Super Bowl. And that's the first time. I've thought that in many years funny. Great choice by choice by Dan. Labs done lebatardshow Carlos boozer went on highly questionable. If you're not familiar with this is basically shoe polish on the head if you're balding, you got spots there. I used to use on television, a can of hair. Stugatz. You know, you just you just sprinkle like a can of hair in in a in a spot, and it would just cover up. It just like, it's linking. It is. No, it's like grace back. Libertas show with this two guys on ESPN radio. So the Miami Dolphins have not been relevant. Interesting for twenty years. They've been a regional team and worse than that a boring one. Now, they've got a new quarterback that probably much of the league laughs at Josh Rosen is coming to Miami. And it's an interesting thing how quickly your star can fade in a good quarterback draft. That guy was considered a top ten pick one year later only the dolphin seemed to be interested in trading much of anything at all in order to get a guy that last year was a top ten pick in the history of the sport. Until recently, a top ten pick is at the very least gonna get three or four years on your bench shirt might not even you might not even get to see him play his first year. So they throw him out there. He came out of school early. He basically this was his his senior year of college was played in the pros with a team that. Dreadful by any measurement, the NFL's changed, you know, from a lot of standpoints where the rookie salaries, especially the top five or not as expensive as they used to be. You can make a mistake or at least perceived mistaken quarterback take one the next season or just like someone better. But I think that was a great move by the dolphins gave a second round pick for quarterback that everyone loved Lesch. It's it's no risk. But that quarterback took a beating last year in terms of reputation and his character is getting assaulted to where people are talking about bad teammates stuff because he happens to be smarter than most of the people in the locker room, and that can be threatening to teammates and coaches alike. However, this is what he said in an M QB piece, and I want to I want you to tell me what you think of what he's saying here. I absolutely would have competed. If they kept me, but I wouldn't I would have been kind of bummed about it because I knew I wouldn't get a fair shake GM's not going to draft a quarterback draft another one the next year higher and then play the first one it's emitting that you made two mistakes. Just wouldn't happen. I wouldn't hesitate to compete, but I would know preemptively I wouldn't get a shot. Even if I won the competition. I'm fine. It's not like I'm some child soldier in Dr four. I've had it pretty good. I think it's time. I had some legitimate adversity handed to me, I tried to put everything into perspective if I'm bombed. I'm getting traded by the cardinals. I try to think I'm living in an awesome condo in the middle of Scottsdale. I'm on a team. I have food on my table, a good family life could be a lot worse. So you count your blessings and try to put good energy out into the world. Coaches don't want that. They don't care about your good energy in the world. No, just throw touchdown just sling. It just sling it and don't tell what star for what what child soldiers shut up kid it back in the huddle. Seriously. What? This guy threatens people because of how smart he is. He has been he he was outspoken at UCLA, and all it was just a college student finding his voice and giving opinions. And also while he was at UCLA. He was one of the better quarterback. I've ever seen in college. And he had a hot tub in his dorm really covered all the bases on his video that he put out there that can result thanking fans looking forward to Miami offering column Mary his apartment at a very good price. I've really nail that they many really stuck the land. They're agitated collar Murray. Yeah. It was great. You really did a nice job with that, man. Hopefully could play quarterback. I mean. He also honored commitments to Larry FitzGerald charity event. It was given a standing ovation all the show. It a Homer won the MVP. I mean this guy. This guy won the MVP. He did. I saw he won the home run derby played Larry Fitzgerald's charity event. Just want a strange thing to the blurt. Like, he knew it. He won the MVP of. I it's important to know that we have a quarterback down here in Miami. Who's a multi towel? He might be better baseball the column, Mary, I listen to me. All right to sports star. Listen to me to gots for that. To be the first thing in the history of stugatz. That gets retained. Josh Rosen won MVP of Larry FitzGerald charity softball game. That's a thing. You said as if you had studied it and know it from the weekend out of the dolphins though, a second round or for an MVP steel Cuyler Murray. I just like everyone for one moment because I know things changed quickly here and abruptly I want you guys to go back a little bit. And think about all the things that were being said on ESPN about a crazy. It was for Cuyler Murray to leave the guaranteed money of baseball, the lack of safety that there wasn't football. That dude got some really good advice from his people. Because now he's going to play quarterback is the number one overall pick in the draft. And man all I saw on television to people telling him to play baseball because it's guaranteed money and physically safer now people feel like he got lucky because of the coaching change and kings. Gary and kings varies always wanted him. I I have a feeling that Kyle Murray would have made that decision regardless because I think enough people saw that he could be a great quarterback potential to be a great quarterback. Any would have been a top three or four pick regardless. Yeah. But one overall, but it's three or four, but still it's excellent advice. Yes, he got S think about what happened there. It wasn't. But four five months ago that we thought the career path he was gonna choose was going to be baseball. And it was obvious. And he surprised us by choosing football. And the advice that he got was extrordinary because nobody had looked never mind the questions about that guy size. No one in the history of the sport has played the position at that size and been drafted that high like that this is the only time in the history of that league that that guy can be drafted number one overall and his agents and his people and the people giving him advice saw. Sauve that somehow saw the Baker Mayfield and Russel Wilson and drew Brees of sort of change the height perception, and man, you should that's the rare instance, I often, you know, lament the agent industry because it's disgusting. It's gross and cutthroat and largely immoral and and if you saw some of the stuff that happened in the shadows, you would find it slimy. But that dude got great advice from the people who are representing him probably since its freshman year of college illegally. It's all about the Benjamins. Maybe. I know what you meant. Casper. People a sponsor for the show for while. They gave us mattresses. We have them here. They're very comfortable gonna have to apologize for that saying the color Murray might have had representation as a freshman in college. You said probably give it maybe. I mean, he was he was professional baseball signed a contract, right? So. Oh, okay. Very good. I would be legally, you know, I was thinking football representation but fair. Strictly say in the fact that he had signed a contract the professional team in needed representation. The baseball agents pushed him to football. Donlevatar some people might think that I love you are the three best words together for me. That's not what the three best words together are still guts. Three best words together are stugatz.

What To Do With Wentz? College Football Playoff Talk. Week 14 NFL Headlines.

"Welcome into one the radio wherever you are however you are spending your holidays holiday season holly month however it is thanks to make a one done radio. A part of your day goes on this episode opened the show talking out the jalen hurts carson. Wentz situation what do they mean. Carson wentz scott the wind and the on carson wentz are. The jalen hurts. Excuse me got the win. Move carson. Wentz are they gonna keep. I don't know we'll find out what my opinion then tug about the situation with constable playoffs in florida. Just laying goose bracelet. Shokhin away through their shoe either way at chances of making the college football playoffs and then finally close the show. Give him a week fourteen. Nfl headlines include. The colts being balanced the patriots. Being embarrassed and the packers continuing to wind and as senior all that on the show. Let's go so let's talk about. The situation is go on with the philadelphia eagles jalen hurts carson wentz and the probably the sad foreseeable future four carson wentz. And that looks like it's not gonna be with the philadelphia. Eagles carson wentz has would bet was. Benched jalen hurts cameron in lit up the show. He had a good game. And all you can ask for. This point is that he remains healthy. He continues to play well and the eagles at least find success. Because you never want you never wish bad unless you're early rival team and you never. I never wished for an injury to happen. I think we all can if you wish to injury to happen to a player the nearest comeback like that simple like your scumbag. If you sit there and say i hope he gets hurt. I hope he gets covert. I hope this. I hope that your scumbag plain simple and you just look at jalen hurts and you just wish nothing but success because you look back to what i get an alabama hugh had led to a national title loss against clemson and then led them again playing in georgia and the second half to came in that game. Everyone knows a whole story. If you don't to came in lead the comeback took over the starting job janna hurts on. The bench went to oklahoma and lead them to the college. Football playoffs. Embarrassed against lsu. But you look and just say this kid. Us wish the best for this kid. I think everyone can see. The kid means well and he wants to have success. So let's talk about now. What's probably the future ford. Like for carson wentz and the eagles and i know last week if you all listen to this show you heard me talk. Jimmy yellow and saying is it. The colts are are they. An option and jimmy brought the point. If the way that filbert's deal said observe a one year deal that's awesome but if he does great they have had talks of bringing him back next year. So if you're the colts if you do. Bring him. Back chris ballard in the culture not going to explore that option of having him come on in be a backup for philip rivers most expensive backup in the league and probably is right now across the league so with now jalen hurts as a starting quarterback and i to sit there and jalen hurts is the future is the guy at a one game against new orleans. He's not like this all slow down. I never want sit there and say this guy's a future. You clearly see him. You saw this new orleans one game. So let's just hold on and sit there and say that's not the reason why he's got a future like do i think he can be the future for them absolutely and if you look at the stats if you watch him play. Yeah he threw the touchdown to alshon jeffery he ran for over one hundred yards. They ran the read option a lot. I get all of that but are we going to do. We know that this saints team if they are legit number one number one team in the conference in the In the conference or was just maybe will take him hail there maybe not who knows even though it tastes inhale. She had a pretty good game. Jalen hurts was no scrub yourself again. A hundred and sixty yards throwing in eighteen carries for one. Oh six like he did his part. He fumbled the ball one time but the biggest problem between him and carson wentz was that was it. That was the only fumble. You soften this guy you saw adversity. You saw them lead. And i looked onsite case situation. Ha- had new orleans almost lost. Like how fricking sat or philadelphia. Almost downsized king. Excuse me like just at the ball. Just stop with this whole. Oh don't touch don't touch touch. It just touched the ball. And i get it. If you don't touch if like if you go touch it new may hit a finger. Now the defenders right there to steal from your. I get all of that but my opinion you're out there because they trust you to either to touch the ball. They call hands. Team hands hinz to catch the football. That's what they caught now. Let's talk about the future for. I think we all agree. Jalen hurts after the game has earned the right to start the rest of the year. You have to know what you have them like. You spend a second round pick on the guy you have to know is he our future is he not is carson wentz dealing with the guy are we gonna keep carson wentz because you gotta find a trade part like if i'm the gm of a team and i may have the cap space. I may really had it. But i'm going to use that to my advantage if i'm actually interested in carson wentz in willing to take on that big of a contract i'm gonna use that to my advantage and sit there and say hey i will give you a pick. It's not going to be a high one fourth fifth round pick to i'm nothing carson. Wentz is worth is worth that below. I'm saying i would play that game like your wind cards because of his contract. Because if you don't if you have on your rosser you cannot build like you really want to around june hurt except throughout the draft and saying that impossible because a lot teams do believe building through the draft. How you build toward a future and not just getting an expensive free agent here. And they're allowed teams. Believed that. but when you're looking at the end of the day this team with carson wentz we'll have so much money that they can't use so they had get rhythm so if our jemison offer you a fifth for carson may be a fourth if you really you know if i really want him but like if you're trying to give him his contract i'm not gonna give you first. I let so just a law. So why would you give a first round. Pick for a guy when you really don't want to take his contract but you're going to take him on because you believe his future carson. Wentz is like he. Women seen anything like too extravagant from him. If i'm saying that word right leaving anything like that from him sent he was in his possible. Mvp type season the year that he won the super bowl like he was working towards being the mvp and then he got hurt. Missed last few games. Nick foles came lead into all the way to civil with a win. And i'm not people have said. Oh nick foles should been kept around like nick. Full sucks to okay. It's so people. Don sit there and go. We'll make zone good in philadelphia so let me. Let me backtrack that nick. Foles sucks everywhere else. Good and philly sucks everywhere else. I've written article about it. Haven't it go read about it to pretty good article but if you look at what carson wentz does and if the colts take him i mean it could be a good fit because you have frank right and carson wentz like both. Were pretty good together. And now you're gonna but the thing is chris. Ballard is senator. Saying i don't want to you on that contract so if you're the eagles do just bite. The bullet release him. Take the massive The palley hit you. Think you could find out what you can do. I mean there's other teams out there as well you looking at. Let's just talk about like new the patriots if they can take the cap hit you talk. Maybe the broncos if they really won't go that route or the san francisco forty niners nearly jimmy garoppolo. But they wanna. Hey we'll give you jimmy if you if you take carson's advice i like there's so many different moves out there for this guy. I think at the end of the day someone there personally at the eagles are willing to trade carson wentz. Someone's gonna take him on like not they're not gonna give them much for because maybe give a draft pick a low traffic and maybe like a player to just a clear cast based not some well known guys. I don't know just thrown hypotheticals out there. But that's the situation he's in hypothetically you are no longer the starter in hypothetically. You're probably not going to be there next year. So i if i'm i'm looking for i'm going to start packing bags because i'm not going to be filled next year and i only know again. I personally don't know where he's going to be at this point. Let's talk about. the situation. Was the college football playoffs. And i wanted to well. What florida florida. There's won't really quick. Flora chote. Like i don't i let me just first off. I say everyone knows. I'm a michigan fan michigan wolverines fan. Die hard that's my team. I get that. But i also try to be unbiased on the show. And i'm not gonna sit there and say near and one job you should be lsu and you could be now obama no mcgahn blah blah blah. Not going to do all that. Okay yes. I'm a michigan fan. Do i know going to do harbaugh. i do not. I don't care this point. I just wanna know who's coaching team soon. Because you got Signing day coming up in a few days. And i don't know. I personally think that horrible will stay. But i'm not gonna dive into all that florida though choked you had a chance to take on. Lsu be lsu at home all of that and you choked because all you had to do was win that game and then if you magically beat alabama was now at this point. I don't think they're going to be alabama. i i don't think floor is going to be alabama. You know. I pick them to win. Sec this year. i actually did. But i didn't know alabama was gonna be this dominant with matt jones a quarterback in the pieces that they lost and i it's alabama. They're in quebec. Is probably a five star profit prospect. That couldn't have five star somewhere else as starter. But he's still alabama. I get all that. What alabama has. I personally picked florida to win the sec title. Now it's looking less and less in florida. Had the one chance. Florida could have made the playoffs with a win. Lsu and beating alabama now dealt. The committee is even gonna go. That route like florida could probably again. If if florida magically beats alabama could still make the playoffs and florida could be out like. That's the situation that the committees in think about it because of florida beat alabama. Now why is it going to take a two loss florida. Put him in over a one loss. Alabama has been dominant all year except for one game. It's not gonna happen if that's the case. Then you know you've got georgia. Maybe in the mix. But if florida if alabama beats florida which again is going to happen are most likely going to happen. Most likely you got alabama still at one. Then you're going to have clemson versus notre dame if clemson beats notre dame and it's a close game i've i've said so many times if it's a close game both those teams get in if notre dame beats clemson clemson zao like you cannot put clemson in. You cannot put a two loss team in there now. If things you've really will get interesting. But if clemson dominance notre dame and beats him up and down the field glam gain nine close. I think he take notre dame now like okay cool you be cleanse early in the year. That's awesome but they didn't have trevor lawrence. Now they do and you lost bad so now we know the situation happens so now. Let's talk about. What were the other teams so alabama firmly at one in my opinion. Let's just assume. I'm just going to assume that both situations to assume and notre dame beats clinton. I get clemson gone now. You're gonna have state three because what's a northwestern winning going to do it's not going to propel them to to like it's not the but they're locked into the playoffs. I've said this before. I will continue his whether they play north western or some random opponent. They were going to get in the plan. I don't understand why people just don't listen to me like understand what i'm trying to say. Win against north western or maryland or rutgers or whatever was in the last week of the season day are still getting in the focus on that. Nobody cares about them. They're in now they loose northwestern. Now you're screwed. Now you're out the end with a loss like that. No way plus i gotta talk about this so the then the fourteen my opinion would be texas ena. I personally believe that. My only thing i want to talk about is the usc usc out of california. I personally don't know why i saw on. Espn usc has a fifty percent chance to make the college football playoffs. I'm sorry what are we doing here. We're saying that you see has a chance to make the college football playoffs at fifty percent over other teams that they have a higher chance according to espn. Which believe espn wherever you want. I always listen to all. They are good for breaking news. I get them but you gotta listen to. When it comes to their right there have a higher percentage to make the playoffs. Thank clemson like. I would rather have clemson over a usc in the playoffs. I both like won't be more dominant team but evident every emulate looked at usc scheduled to see their wins. Arizona state twenty eight twenty seven arizona. Thirty four to thirty by the way. Arizona has won a game this year and they just fired their head. Coach kevin sunlit so congrats the usc in that game. Us are utah. Excuse me thirty three seventeen. Utah is not good as you're either so there's that The next game washington state thirty eight to thirteen and then. Ucla forty three to thirty eight. What are we doing here. And then play against washington in the pac twelve championship. Washington has only played four games and there in the pac twelve championship. So we're gonna to sit there and say so. espn all whoever. Whoever was controlling that graphic. Because i don't know if they've got a problem or not but like i just don't see the situation where we have. Usc making it. Like the only way. The only chance. And i and. I can't figure out the chance of this happens visit alabama beach florida. Notre dame beats. What's it called beets. What's com bit clemson and then ohio state loses Northwestern is that is that gonna do it. Is that going to put him up there. Is that gonna put. Usc they beat as texan an easily move into a be number three. And that's gonna put usc over cincinnati to make it there. I personally don't see that happening. I von picking a team. I'm picking cincinnati. I'm not saying i'm not saying that. Us's not good just saying that. We're gonna have usc jump all the way up that because they want a pack twelve. That's not that good. I just don't buy it. I just don't buy that this situation that we're in right now like if you look across the board in all the rankings you know how many pac twelve teams are actually going to be in the top twenty five zero besides us. There's nobody else. There's nobody else in the top twenty five so what. We're trying to sit there and say if you look at like the big ten they have iowa they are northwestern ohio state like they have teams in the top twenty five. But we're sending northwestern that usc because of their resume has a fifty percent chance. Espn just by that. I don't buy any of that. So that'd be the only scenario getting just don't cincinnati. Cincinnati loses somehow to anybody else. The rest of the your. I don't buy that. I just look at this point. I got alabama notre dame ohio state as long as clemson learning games. Close the atlantic By its coast game. that's how he northington by the. It's exposed to get blown out. I was getting. I see ohio state alabama crimson and probably probably the case your taxes. Anyway at that point. But it's it's it's a crazy situation but fans again you better hope. They don't lose to north western because that's going to really be like a smack in the face to hot state. Let's talk about some which at fourteen. Nfl headlines I think the biggest one that people want and maybe talk about who knows at this point is. Let's start listening to go down the list first off. Let's talk about the culture of the raiders. Because that's my team. My people were saying are hold onto jonathan taylor. No one's breakout. Game was gonna be and the other day against the raiders. he has breakout game. He had twenty carries. He had a hundred and fifty yards rushing with two touchdowns including a sixty two yard. Run helped out by the offense ally. I'm not going to sit there and say that it was a vision on that play like it was like the vision. The offense alana part of the red sea. Like just as wising go. I don't know you is a very big gaping hole. But still he had his speed got him through all into the end zone for the touchdown so good. Jonathan taylor overall again hit a great day. And if you look at the colts had a very bounce tech and people are not talking about the colts that much or the titans like the afc south has two dominant teams between them and the colts right now. Our team the nausea talking about their nine four alongside. The titans right now. That could make a good interesting run in the playoffs next then. When the steelers were undefeated yes no longer the case anymore. The got embarrassed against the buffalo bills. This short passing stuff like it. It's cool if you wanna if it works if you're like but when team start to gain plan in stop at like might as well play close man coverage i know about a the routes look rub routes in like mesh routes and all that stuff i get that to like get receivers open and then made to shut down the field. I understand that. But it's like you got an open you to get the ball out like deeper. Dolphins line does a pretty good job of the steelers. And i get there. Haven't been like they weren't sacked are rosberg. I'd get the situation with him. Give him bala. Quick push arm too much in the short passes out and he's throwing the ball so many times but just for what. He threw a thirty seven times for one hundred. Eighty seven yards. That's great last week through. What fifty sometimes for three hundred yards with torn all these times like dinking dunking ding dunking in. That doesn't work out. A penalty happens. Now you're really situation so now. The buffalo bills who i picked to win that game. I felt the bills. We're going to win that game. And they did. Twenty six to fifteen josh allen. Had a good game. They had a great game defensively as well had a pick. Six has to data phenomenal game ham. But he's loving his time and buffalo and. I know that the bills are going to really be a team to watch for in the playoffs. And let's also let's talk about the history chiefs. I mean was it. They had a ten nothing. They were down ten. Nothing scored thirty straight points and dolphins fought their way back into the game and no scored. Pardon lock closed into how the game actually looked. But if you're the miami dolphins you feel pretty good. 'cause you're still lying to go to the playoffs but i just can't say right now the top seed that's all you can really say about this point of the topsy and they're going to. I mean i don't really know. They play the saints next week. Which is going to be a good match for them. But if they beat the saints their setup for basically home field of the playoffs at that point. Let's also talk about the jets and seahawks. I know what i was telling about the show. Last week i engaged my picks. There's no there's no analysis you give for the jets. They suck they stink on ice. I don't know what else to say like. There's no like you know. In fact when i get my pay account like breakdown nina. I think this is why that's why this one play. It's seahawks jets seahawks next. Like what else is there to say. Jets have been doing this stuff on purpose. Seahawks are just were dominant. Forty three in the jets are just whatever so. That's not really a headline shows like who cares. Like i just gotta point the fact. That the jets still stunk. Packers in lyons package clinton nfc Nfc north and just again a down year for them. They've been playing great so far they just and now see if it continues through the playoffs that make it to the nfc championship game again. They don't get run over and run out the stadium. The did last year against san francisco and then finally again get i. Actually i give a shout to andy. Dalton took on his old team in cincinnati had a solid game hundred yards passing. Thirteen completions with two touchdowns. Good for him. he's gonna root for guy. Plays against his old team goes out. There has a style game. I mean he didn't play against joe burrow which pilot of light he would like more like a rubbing your phasing with joe burrow. Would've been out there but he still went out there and got a win against this whole team and it's nice to see like to see him has assessed because i personally fell any dalton's probably a solid started again. I was gonna blow you away as far as like look at that. Plan that but like it's something that you have to build around. And i know this assessment says najib wasn't always there but i just had to look in and i didn't alton just feel like feel happy for the guy winning against his old team and then actually for the last one. I wanna touch on before we end the show right. There is a wanna touch on the pages versus the rams thursday match of picked. I picked the pages and again. I gotta check. I'm pretty sure i did. Which is not a good game. Can't did not play good through the pick six with nine sixteen even though bill bell come out and said that kim newman still win the starting quarterback like what what are we talking about here. Cam newton is. I don't know like. I'm not saying that he's awful but he's just not like and some broad the point. I don't think this is really. I hope it doesn't tied together. But they said after cova candidate has not been playing good sense which maybe the stats may say. Why leg if you look at the game that they had last week the week prior skews me where they dominated the chargers. Kim and didn't do much when you're dominant you. Don't you're not you don't want to do much. I get all that. But twelve completions for sixty nine yards and a touchdown. that's it. I ve you think he did something more but he didn't do anything so it's like great team win last week. Then you go to stay in los angeles playing a random you just get flat out embarrassed and just they had few games. I don't i actually. I'm not going to pit into beat. The dolphins are not going to pay him to beat the bills but it will pick them to be the jets when it comes to later on this season because i'm picking everybody to beat the jets valid if it is episode of one data radio thanks for tuning to the show.

This is the base of the Dan lebatardshow with this to got spot Cass. We will get to nNcholas cage angrily singing about prince, purple rain. We will get to avengers opening at one point two billion dollars. We will get to Mel kiper saying officially officially Mel kiper has said that the raiders are for real. We've been trying to answer that question for about six or seven years since they I'm just telling you that Mel kiper is now saying the raiders are for real. Well, the question's been answered. Of course, Mel kiper is going to say that you know, who's running the raiders right now. Mike Mayock, you know, what? Mike Mayock USA do for NFL network. He used to do a milk, hyper does for ESPN. That's right. All right gamma put it on the poll is Mel kiper a terminal terminally afflicted with draft guy bias in assessing that the raiders are going to be a ten win playoff type team this year. And I got gotta find to to. And finally, she just blew two of them. Really did. Okay. Let's cage angrily singing purple rain after his four day marriage in multiple Los Angeles, karaoke bars yet that's in. Finally, I will I will also record Ben. I also want to tell you guys about a terrible poolside conversation. I had here you you will feel my pain, but first we are the nation's leading authority on talking about game of thrones poorly. So because. Because I am now up to season three episode four, and I know more than anyone here. Okay. So our conversation is going to be laughably bad about this subject. I just want you to know. I was rooting for the psalm B's like I couldn't avoid all of the spoilers. I was trying to avoid all the spoilers. It's impossible. America's watching this television show together, I loved that. Again, though HBO has another hit show plagued by wait a minute. Why is it so dark the sopranos ended that way? And now everyone was confused. Gots the fight scenes. This thing is shot. So spectacularly that. People were mad who didn't adjust their televisions because they're watching. You know, dead people fight at night in a poorly lit place, and it looks like it. It's like game of thrones amateur hour in terms of if you don't fix your television. You just see shapes and shadows fighting right? I mean, what do you mean by fix your television? What did you need to do? Exactly. A lot of people knew to adjust it. I don't know how they knew a lot of people knew to adjust their a lot of people know how to adjust their televisions brightness, Dan. I'm shocked knows how to adjust. I didn't watch it. I didn't adjust my brightness. I have seven people living in my house who come out and do that for me whenever I yell. Why wouldn't they just adjust the lighting? So we don't have to adjust our TV's. Yeah. Well, the fault the fault is ours. You have someone just to adjust the bright is on your TV. Right. That's right gamma. Can you put it on the poll is the intro to game of thrones unnecessarily long? You know, they're telling the story with each intro at least lately, it's a unique intro for each one. Where they tell the story instead of telling you previously on game of thrones, which I desperately need as someone who hasn't binged this show and just goes, you know, the appropriate amount of time in between seasons. And I forget everything a previously on game of thrones. This person is still alive. This is where this person is. This is what this person's name is would be super helpful. If we're discussing this today. Do I need to spoiler alert on last night. It was foiled for me. Like, I I know what happened. I couldn't do anything about it. It was unavoidable. I would have had to live like in a Buddhist monk cave somewhere. Yeah. You can't do it twenty four hours out, and you can't get away from the thing. I think you need to give people till Tuesday to watch the the most recent episode of geo t thank you. That's a solid rule. You have to be careful here, Dan because people can avoid Twitter, they can delete the app they can avoid social media for twenty four hours. But we're the biggest radio show in America. They certainly can't avoid us. No, I'm not gonna say it. I don't want that. Look, man. Shawn McCoy right now people are angrier at him than they are some of the despicable things. He's accused of doing like they're so angry at him for spoiling avengers. Shady. They're so mad at him that it's brought those allegations back into the light. Honestly, he was skating. He was people kind of forgotten about what you're Sean McVay. You're right. He'll pops up over here. Kareem hunt pops up over there. No one's talking about the Shawn McCoy. Yeah. Dude sport thinks that there's no heat on them goes at and spoils avengers. And guess what? Now, you now everyone's locked in Leshan McCoy by you, you ruined geo t man and people start digging through your past I joke and Mike is right about this be careful, Dan read lightly. Okay. Thank you God's. I appreciate I care about you, man. One point two billion dollars is what avengers opened at one point. I just crushed every record ever by several hundred million dollars crazy. What is that movie cost to me? To open in the black. Let's play the sound the best sound from the draft though. Because this is wonderful the draft ratings were enormous. I think record number of people both watch the draft. And like were in Nashville four the draft. The crowd in Nashville was enormous. The budget was three hundred and fifty six million not for the draft. And he looked that way. So the TV ratings for the draft were actually for the first round were down a little bit in comparison last year but last year at so many star players, and so many famous quarterbacks in it that it could be assumed that was going to happen. But the numbers are still pretty tremendous considering that this was a draft sort of saying stars. Well, what the numbers say is that forty seven point five million viewers and six hundred thousand fans in attendance. And so these were many many, Tennessee titans fans and Pat McAfee was a punter for the Colt, and he has got a mouth on him that will make him a very successful broadcaster. I am hoping SPN hires him to be. See the Monday night football voice. Now that reportedly Peyton Manning has turned it down because he's funny, and he doesn't give many bleeps. And so what he did to the Tennessee fans while announcing a pick was this halo Nashville. I'm not gonna say single word about the Tennessee titans record against the Indianapolis Colts. Because I was a punter. And there's no reason for me to talk about them without being said we did not punt much against the Tennessee titans. So you probably have no clue who I am too. Big it two years ago when I retired from the coats, I retired alongside to greats Robert Mathis in Joe Wright's a couple of months later. I watched the draft Robert Mathis announced the pick Joe rights announce the pick and then in a Ranga tan announced the fourth round draft pick. I was replaced by zoo animal, I was upset about it. Because the Aranka tan was terrible at his job with that being said, the Indianapolis Colts hottest team, not only in the AFC south, but the entire NFL. Hey, young nucleus surrounded Stanford. Hey, Andrew luck to or drafted last year. Turn this year. Hey with the eighty nine of the two thousand nineteen and it fell draft. The Indianapolis Colts. Jim are say, hey, Chris Ballard select future hall of Famer b-actor brought Stanton. Standard bobby? Oh. Oh. I mean rushed it just old professional wrestler without a stumble without everyone who's gotten up there whenever we play. These guys might go into the old file there. And just find some of the things who started. This wasn't drew Pearson. Was it like I remember we were talking about ROY. What are the smile on ROY ROY you remember that one right? Yeah. He went after the eagles that he I don't I don't think anyone has ever done it as cleanly as McAfee did it. I wish they all. Did it like that? Do you realize how much better the numbers would be on the draft? If they if they dropped all the respectful praying to mecca stuff, and and actually just had every guy go up there is some sort of wrestling character. This is the second straight year special teamer has taunted a live audience is here. The draft was in Dallas and the eagles were fresh from a Super Bowl and David Akers took the opportunity to take a shot at Cowboys fans representing. Champs? Little jam cams. Pay. These draft picks. With the forty nine. Two thousand eighteen the NFL like the represent the Bill out the eagles. He is. South Dakota state. They only do it with the later picks. They only allow like all these guys. Let's listen to those names that those guys are announcing no any of these people that the solid effort though, by I didn't know he had that in them. I mean, Maggie took it to a whole new level, but he's solid effort. But day-to-day I do feel like drew Pearson. If I don't have this wrong, Mike, we'll find the sound soon. Enough drew Pearson. I think sort of he everyone else is a copycat after this. I think this was also in a draft. This is now the opposite of what David Akers did drew Pearson. Former cowboy player in Philadelphia where the draft was that year. Cowboys. I want to thank the eagle. Allow me to have a career any NFL? Thank you. I am honored as a non drafted free agent to be selected to make the Cowboys. Second round draft pick. On behalf of the time. World champion Dallas Cowboys. Owner Jerry Jones. Jason, jerry. Before me. After the second brick. The sixty picking the second. I was. Back from pain. Donlevatar? Why people mad? Try to give me fired. Go ahead. Get petitions together, Stu gods. Come on white people oppressed, white people rise up former union gather around you could be United on something. It's mad at me. These live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. This is the conversation that I was having Stu gods. Poolside this weekend, it it's a bit of a personal nightmare. The first question that was awful. truck Salvator, Peter let me check the files here. See what we've got Monday morning. I mean churning it out yet sending way too many emails if you do not know truck, solid touro is the one remaining journalist ESPN, the one the rest of gas bags and yodelers. He's the guy, and he is at the bottom of ESPN churning out stuff that the shows can argue about, and I think that what he is just sent out Gammel requires a poll, and that pole needs to be does, greedy Williams know, what a fact is because. The quote. From LSU cornerback, greedy Williams who was drafted in the second round Friday night when talking to a conference call of reporters, I know one thing the Browns are going to the Super Bowl this year. That's a fact what's the problem? Does he not know what that franchise's history is does he not know like we're really going to go that fast from the Browns have been a laughing stock for fifteen years to to the Super Bowl. You want a bunch of guys in the Browns have done that here in the off season who don't care about what their history is. They only care about the team moving forward. And this team feels pretty good about themselves. And they agreed. I would also say that the last fifteen years a whole bunch of people have gone in there thinking wouldn't be that bad. And it was a whole a whole long line of like they squandered the hall of fame career of Joe Thomas couldn't have been any better job just wasted. It. This is these are people that are good at their jobs believing it now, you know, John Dorsey Odell Beckham and slay injury, greedy Williams who was my favorite player entering the traffic and believe he fell all the way to the second round. I mean, they just keep stockpiling talent. Why did he fall second row? Why did why did he came Metcalf? Can he not run like routes can he not cut why did decay Metcalf drops came at CAF became a viral sensation because of the photos of his workout and his work at the combine dudes put together. But did you see though, how he walked into the draft room after he had signed with the with the the Seahawks? A scout persuaded him to walk into the Pete Carroll room a shirtless just to show off. It made me uncomfortable maybe uncomfortable because it was a whole lot of white people. And then a black dude just shirtless walk into the room, but Pete Carroll diluted the whole thing the whole meat market. That is the draft by taking off his own shirt. That's great decay Metcalf certainly looks apart. But the production wasn't. Necessarily there. He wasn't called the best receiver on his own team. When he went up head to head against, greedy Williams, sort of ward association, greedy, absolutely owns them. The Bill the book on greedy Williams, and why he fell was that he has no interest in tackling. In fact, there's video that the Browns put out there in which Freddie kitchens told greedy Williams gonna attack on greedy Williams says that's never been a problem, greedy. Williams was lying because it's actually been a huge problem with that being said, it's a cover league and pretty kitchens. Even put his voice sues like, all this. I love what he said. I love what finally some bleeping. Finally, finally, some coach says bleep this run. I balance join me in two thousand nineteen running relevant. I'm throwing the ball every time because I plead seventy percent of my. Yeah. I think John Dorsey said something to the effect of you gets paid to cover. He doesn't get paid to tackle a foreign language to Dave Gettleman. All what do I talking about? That is the terrible conversation. I had poolside. So I want your magin this. I want you. To imagine this. I am sitting. On a stool waiting for my drink. And what appears next to me is a Saturday afternoon is dude in tuxedo. And that dude's first words to me. Are what do you think? Of the Daniel Jones drafting, no. But that that's fine. Right. That's understandable. I mean now for you. But it's not Hello. But but it's that's fine by itself. But what came next was just turning around just being like, excuse me. And then it was. Yeah. I left the white snake concert the other day. That's how the sentence started. Go watch the draft. And my team drafted Daniel Jones. I know you're a television person. I'm and I'm like, do you listen to the radio show? He's like, no. I'm like, if you did, you know that that that whole thing only exist to make fun of. That your general manager. Is. The only thing I care about in the draft is that that guy is making moves and explaining them cash.

You just center and Senate nickel win NBA champion say that one game thinks thous- make fights and Boston boxing we as before the series. But it just seemed like Milwaukee was the way better team throughout the veggies. But when I watched this when I watched this today, if Janas doesn't have a monster game and somebody else besides him doesn't step up. Boston is just gonna out talented. Have been nice to hear before the series before game one. But I'm proud of Paul. I mean, that's what you do. I mean things change in the NBA, and he changes opinion the truth. Tonight's game.

Did you know whitesnake was still out here doing it? My can you put on our Twitter account, please that photo? I just sent you Vince Neal the years have been very cruel to the partying at motley Crue front, man. Did you expect them to be otherwise? I mean, do you see this photo? And you tell me if it's recognizable because I've seen any number. Jon Bon Jovi is starting to look like an old woman. Steve Tyler's been an old woman for about fifteen years. This was jarring to see Vince Neal, and it shouldn't be because it's one of the most legendary party bands of all time. But it yeah. The years have been tough to him at lebatardshow on Twitter for a photo with no caption of what is purported to be Vince Neal. Now, so rarely in the history of the shows this was wonderful during the break. You guys would have enjoyed seeing us to God's in his natural habitat. He was leaning back in chair not in this studio. Any overheard something that had been said between me and the shipping container in here, and what he overheard, and it was just the faint remnants of it that he heard that says right as stugatz as fastest to God's ever been. Right. That is as fast as it's ever happened. And so we need to celebrate this real quick. Because when he's right. And when he spectacularly right? We do it with much fanfare and still got your right? Holy still got your right? Exciting. I have no idea what right about well. Shouted from the other room. He just kept shouting. What was I write about? And he did it the entire break until he sat down here. And I'm like I'd like to surprise you at how quickly you were right about something. Here is Stephen a Smith talking about. Kevin durant? Plus, Stephen, Kevin Durant. Average is better this thirty five game. Every time. He's fist off trust. Shoot. Me. His number one tagging this. Do whatever it takes. Gotta be nice for him to be a New York thicken ball fun. If I have to protect them against you pay. I'll do it. If I have to sit up this last. So he drops forty because he's ticked off of that too. Because of the New York mcface we have suffered a tummy wanted to take a knife stabbed chest. How much are we supposed to hear about this attitude there? What? Kevin Durant attitude as long if he comes to ball, but take Eulalie Madison Square Garden good. Works. We can expect from his got what Stephen swift show we as at one PM eastern on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. Got your right? Holy still got your right? Stu gods has never been more. Right. And journalism in sports has never been more dead. Or alive, depending on how you look at it. Come on. So you guys are telling me that every positive things even as saying about. Kevin Durant now is basically a recruitment tool to get them to New York. And yes got his right. That's exactly what's. Right. Holy still got your stride. I echo the sentiments, by the way. I mean, I'm telling you there is no one. I'd rather have on that won't nobody nobody on the planet trying to recruit Kevin New York that Stephen is really no one on one on the planet. Stephen F can get it done. Yeah. All right. I want to ask you guys. This question though, hell is Paul Pierce doing though on the truth content machine here lately? Things dan. Well that was so far. I think even with the magic winning a game even with the nets winning a game. That was the surprise of the playoffs. So far beating that team that way by that much in their arena after Milwaukee, I know Detroit stinks. But Boston is looked on uneasy footing all season long. All the tap. There is Irving has spent the entire season telling you how not funded is and making you wonder that he's going to leave and they not only smoke Milwaukee. They did the thing with Brad Stevens. Where every year we find a reason to remind everyone that he's a great coach the MVP the league hasn't been stopped by anybody this year. No like that dude seems like the unstoppable evolution of the sport. And he had a damore Rosen game. He had one of those thirty three percent or games when he's been. Feasting at the rim all season. Yeah. Plays a very efficient game because it's all at the rim in creditor Al Horford to be able to defend at his age. I mean, many were sort of a Suming maybe that contract wasn't going to be the greatest considering horford's age. He's he's earned defense. If onto compo- can't get Horford in foul trouble. Like, you can't think of that guy as an MVP. Like, I understand what you, but I have to think that he's gonna get better at this. How many times you think this season? He what's seven of grade. Agreed. But it was still a surprise surprise enough that Paul Pierce is telling you that series is over. He's telling you that the Boston Celtics have figured that out. And when you're a real MVP candidate. There is no figuring that out. I want to get to the sound that Patrick Beverley, and Lou Williams had on talking about Kevin Durant because you rarely hear at at you know. At the end of a season. Lou Williams is very confident at basketball. Patrick Beverley is a limited player. But he's a he's a pit bull. Okay. You rarely hear deference like this. Because when you're really an MVP seven seven twenty one doesn't happen to you, very often. No. And listen to this from Patrick Beverley, and Lou Williams simply talking about Kevin Durant after Kevin Durant had said, you know, who I am. I'm not Patrick Beverley, I'm Kevin Durant. And then it's been nothing, but thirties and forties and fifties. Since that, what more could you have done to slow Kevin down, especially in the first half. But you think do play bass. For which you thing. Honestly, honest question, which you think you watch a lot of basketball, you ESPN? These. Kevin durant? Promise we tried. We didn't roll over. Give you didn't say man, you know, what just come on? And give us fifty tonight. Of course, not you know, he's a helluva player. He took you know, he made some tough shots. I've used a coach. Would you tell us? Do we tried everything? We we tried everything we had we have several different cover just for Katie. And they didn't work. Sometimes sometimes you come across special people, and it doesn't matter what you've sent home this no scheme. This no def- is no nothing that you can do with special people. He's one of them. And he showed it tonight. He put them guys on his shoulders and even a game that he he came. I was like, I'm Kevin Durant. Y'all know who I am. And that's the boasts they meant to make when you about to go see some guys this extremely competitive he came out their game. And he said, I can really shoot over these guys, and he did it. So it wasn't lack of effort on our part. He's all world professional, and he proved himself he proved exactly who people think he is who we think he is himself, and he did and he took a head off to a gun gay. I I'm stating the obvious when I say Milwaukee can't be special unless onto compo- is that kind of special where and you rarely hear this from people who are this competitive. Do you realize what you just heard there, which is a few games ago? Kev. Durant stood in front of us and reminded everyone. I'm Kevin Durant and his play has been such and that was borderline if it wasn't dismissive of Patrick Beverley, it was in the realm of dismissive to disrespectful and now it came out of Patrick beverly's own mouth. He's Kevin Durant. Like after having a season ended. I'm Kevin Durant becomes he's Kevin Durant. And I think that's what Kevin Durant expected when he got there. I thought that what he expected was everyone bowing indifference like that. But instead he's defiant and prickly and a cactus, and so we don't embrace it. This show aimed free time for some at. That's. I mean, he is certainly one of the most unique towns we've ever seen in the NBA. I mean, and God bless them for go into to Golden State more play, man. He's got his championships. He's starting to get his validation. I mean good for K D, come to your donlevatar is shop no longer a high school class of any sorts think. So. Only in the movies.

But when you have a team like North Carolina down five to nothing you have to step on their throat, Milwaukee Bucks. You got to crawl before you gotta walk Friday night. It almost happened for the first time. I was watching the warriors game. And I thought for a fleeting second that. I saw Kevin Durant on my television screen in a warriors uniform. Then it was reminded. It was the first round and the clippers and realize I saw nothing. I love you. Please. It's the mecca. Pretty. But walkie box. You get a walk before you run.

What we next. See Sebastian Jankowski. What? Let the rockers rockets warriors. Yeah. Play ten times for the title. But what if they they play the game would object to that? You mean that's five five. It's a sudden death game for all the marble that would be eleven times. But it doesn't matter. Five five sudden one game for the title. I remember that's eleven games. Don't you? Keep it moving. I have a game eleven data. Game. Two best words sports game eleven about that. What we next. See Sebastian Jankowski. I'm guessing it won't be pretty.

So Chris, Cody went into the dungeon and braved the useless sound we will get to his montage of useless sound from the NFL draft and the second. But here's useful sound from the NFL draft. It hasn't ever been done better than Pat McAfee did it when introducing a pick. There was not a stumble. There was not a hiccup. There was no nervousness. There was a guy in full bloom professional wrestler. He'll he's a former punter and he stood in front of Nashville. I don't know if the Colton taints have a rivalry. But they seem to think they do. Right. So they seem to think that there's a rivalry there and McAfee. Among among six hundred thousand people six hundred thousand people in Nashville, he did this. Halo nashville. I'm not gonna say single word about the Tennessee titans record against the Indianapolis Colts. Because I was a punter. And there's no reason for me to talk about that with that being said we did not hunt much against the Tennessee titans. So you probably have no clue who I am ticket. Two years ago. We're not retired from the coats. I retired alongside two greats. Robert Mathis in Joe Wright's, a couple of months later. I watched the draft Robert Mathis announced the pick Joe rights announced the pick and then in a Ranga tan announce the fourth round draft pick. I was replaced by zoo. Edible. I was upset about it. Because the Aranka tan was terrible at his job with that being said, the Indianapolis are the hottest team not only in the AFC south, but the entire NFL. Hey, young nucleus surrounding Stanford nerd, Andrew. To broS drafted last year. Turn this year with the eighty ninth pick of the two thousand nineteen and if L draft the Indianapolis Colts Jim are saying, hey, Chris Ballard select future hall of Famer linebacker from Stanford Bobby oh Karekin. Oh karekin. Like that. You liked the last part? What Chris why do you live like the oak Ariki? So so so much because if you watch the video he like points up into the air, he really land, man, he's the land. He knew he had nailed it and sticks. The landing is the phrase Chris was looking for. He is the author of this useless sound montage because he is as you just heard useless. We'll come to music skinny. Two thousand nineteen in DRAM. You are in this program at the very highest level. And I think that's exactly what he needs. And that's exactly what he wants. And it's what he's going to get guys old soul. His dad raised the play football. I mean, everything about his life is for football. We felt like that was the last piece of the puzzle. Great Xiang said it best who was his coordinator state in terms of his hands and feet being married together better than any player that he's ever coached Mullen, just keeping mex- to have a guy who's piece of Clayton need to get him bigger. But has a tremendous motor. He's hungry to successful down at the senior bowl. I thought he had all the to read it in order to she at a high level in the NFL. He's got movement Bill fit. Fit if you cooked meal at least let me shout for somebody grows. Well, I got bad news for the rest of the teams in the league. The patriots are serious about continuing to win Super Bowls. They are. That's the sound of the day. Brought to you by my computer career dot EDU trading for better life. Everyone loves the patriots rift, everybody just draft the next evolution of the sport. Which is just a bunch of six five guys who catch the ball and defend against the bat. Yep. So we've got funniest thing from the sports weekend here. The patriots always sort of just sit that out what a what a blessing to be able to just make whatever players you want. Good doesn't matter. It really is this wide receiver because it was mcshea saying they don't normally take receiver that early. They don't really focus on receivers. In case, you have it notice. He said they intentionally went to get this guy. 'cause Bella Chang loves this. You know, how impossible it is for Tom Brady to have had that kind of sustained success with the patriots never caring much about receivers. Like, it might be the most impressive thing on a resume. That has no precedent, right? The fact that that team doesn't actually get him weapons that we the audience would crave the year he had one they lost the Super Bowl. Yeah. But he had the season of his life. When they had Randy moss. Oh, look at the numbers. If you wanna laugh look at all the you'll see the more seasons, you'll see them with look just look at Brady's resume and enjoy the Maas seasons because they're different than any other season. And they also Trafton rob gronkowski. Who? Many would argue is a greatest tight end ever. We probably don't think of him when we think about it. Anyone could have gotten him though. Yes. That's how they help to keep him young for sure but anybody could add and Super Bowls without him season. Forty eight hundred yards fifty touchdowns eight interceptions Brady never had forty touchdowns in any other season. It with my coli half an hour ago. What was the quarterback rating for him that season? The quarterback rating for Tom Brady. Like look look at the seasons before that one and look at the seasons after that one for Tom Brady on quarterback rating. Let's go a couple of years before he got Randy moss. It was ninety two six ninety two three eighty seven nine the two seasons after eighty three nine ninety six point two that season one seventeen point two. The masihs. Stands out a little bit. We will get to the funniest thing from the sports week. And next donlevatar? The alley has a bad reputation in general rod American history. But on south beach, someone's always that just sitting somewhere smoking a cigarette. You can't go down in Allie around here. Not see someone sitting there smoking retains a pulsating Keat from the night before you walked by some liquid. They're like is that water? Yeah. Last night. That's definitely not water. The liquid always avoid the liquids in an alley still guts. I venture guests that if you were to rake your tongue on the asphalt of an alley you dine mmediately. I don't think it would be immediately. I you'd contract very quickly right before death several sexual diseases, and then you would die these live at our show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio. We will get to the funniest thing. What's coming into the ESPN inbox there from trucks all Toro who feeds everyone at this network things to be talked about a whole bleep. Trucks touro is saying that Todd mcshay is saying the pats rain in the AFC is over. Finally, so nice. Oh, I feel warm all over. It's all over all talk. I mean, why is it all over? Does. He tell us who stopping it. Okay. Let me see here. I've gotta read some more. But just know that the headline is mcshea colon pats rain in the AFC is over. That's not a qualifier. That's more of a fact sated as more of a fact, then greedy Williams or David football Gettleman. So that's it apparently video now. So it's not a story. It's mcshea video that is being shared so Mike. I'm going to send you we'll do funny thing from the sports weekend. But let's circle back around. I'm going to send you this salad to you get the sound. And then we will play mcshea announcing everyone that the pats rain in the AFC is over. Now, it's it's a somewhat long video. But one of the things he said is the declined for Brady has started just worn Todd that Dan said that about a decade ago, and since then he's won like three MVP's three more Super Bowls Super Bowl BB's. Dan Senate a decade ago when he's had a second hall of fame career. Normally pretty too. But this is yet another day it what you're. Grantable? We'll confused as why the islanders the Coliseum there. For me to hang Chiloe bit throw it a lot. But how about those things? Si C. Joe you keep sleeping on these news. The segment was a little, but I hit the. Pizzas. Did the NBA? Indeed, go, I I haven't looked actually I don't know whether five to four not did it. Indeed, go the very predictable one two three four one two three four on the advancements. I believe so. Yeah. So we're sitting there not talking about hockey, and we are talking about the most predictable results. You could get. Smashing the ball round the puck and biscuit, man. Baffles over place. Don't put it on that good things happen. Kids have little surfer. Privilege rollerblading team. That is if you're not familiar that is hockey guy surfer hockey guy far away from the mic. I believe it to be the worst character in the history of this show. And it takes off. But it's all you have is and Chaka bribe. It's all it's in the arsenal of that character, which reminds me. Playing goalie for the ads, ROY. Roy retired. Either way real hang. I love that God's joke because it's not pronounced Patrick. You were. I for ROY. It's God's followed behind me with Patrick Roy. Which is. Funniest thing from the sports we. People. What in the sport met you laugh hard? He's weekend. They would go. What made you laugh this weekend? Roy that segment that you've been waiting for all your life to show your knowledge showed everyone why you lost your title as black guy who knows the most about hockey anywhere in America. That's why you lost your title right there. I bet you the black guy who beat you in that competition could answer that just emotionally drained right now at what Saul with this guy over here with hockey guy far away from the might of that. Thank you. Thank you. Hang ten shock is on. Chris what do you have there? What do you have is the funniest thing from the sports weekend? Pat McAfee making the colts pick we've already played like seventeen times. Just check it out on the podcast. We played it twice. It's okay. We can play it again. It's funny. Go ahead and play it. Again might halo Nashville. I'm not gonna say a single word about that. Tennessee titans record against the Indianapolis Colts. Because I was a punter. And there's no reason for me to talk about that with that being said we did not punt much against the Tennessee titans. So you probably have no clue who I am too. Two years ago. We're not retired from the coats. I retired alongside to greats Robert Mathis in Joe Wright's a couple of months later. I watched the draft Robert Mathis announced the pick Joe writes in ounce the pick and then in a Ranga tan announce the fourth round draft pick. I was replaced by zoo animal, I was upset about it. Because the Aranka tan was terrible at his job with that being said, the Indianapolis coats are the hottest team, not only in the AFC south, but the entire NFL. They young nucleus surrounding these Stanford. Hey, andrew. To grows drafted last year. Ten this year with the eighty ninth pick of the two thousand nineteen and if L draft the Indianapolis Colts Jim are saying, hey, Chris Ballard select future hall of Famer wine backer from Stanford, Bobby. Oh karekin. Oh reiki. Billy. What was the funniest thing from the sports weekend? The Shawn McCoy upset everybody because he took his son to see the avengers movie. And he was sad by what happened. So he tweeted about it and everybody lost their mind. I want to say can I say what happened? Say I'm saying Thursday, if you haven't seen this movie you get one week. I am saying it on air Thursday. What happens raw, raw, what was your walks? Us me. What I should should've said what is the? Spurs not fouling at the end of game seven great way to spur season ended was they couldn't ear the coaching staff. That's how loud it was Denver played for home court everybody, Mike, what was the funniest thing from the sports weekend. Useless useless. It's all that on Twitter. I'm like, yeah. That is why you play it is. Dozen nineteen shouldn't all the visiting players have something like attached to them at the coach can push a little zap button. Like, oh, he's calling me. I can't hear him like a little like a little buzzard button. Or just know that in every basketball game every fell, and that's that's right. That would work. I saw this on Twitter. It was in the championship league. Which is the the league level below the Premier League. So there's a team in a promotion about right now leads United and there were playing Aston Villa and Aston Villa player got injured and usually get kicked the ball away. And you respect the injured player. Leetch United scored a very controversial goal. And it started a brawl immediately. It was ugly scenes in this match so ugly that the leads United manager had ordered his team to let Aston Villa's score a goal right after that because it was so unfair. So you had a manager directing his team to just let Aston Villa? Go. From one end to the pitch of the pitch to the other to score goal. Uncontested? Game appeared on the poll, please at lebatardshow is the reason that you need to get home court. So that lamarcus Aldridge forgets. How to play basketball us to got? What is the funniest thing from the sports weekend? A man name Lucas Bates Randy London marathon and a Big Ben Gosden. I saw that that had to be painful. I believe he did that as rothlisburger. I got I gotta think that that's going to hurt the body in the morning. I saw the video it was actually running more fluidly than Ben Roberts. That's right. Actually that looked like more mobile Big Ben in the one place in the NFL. Mike the funniest thing from the sports weekend is Todd mcshay announcing that the patriots rain in the AFC over. What is this? I'm hearing that you actually agree with max Cullum, potentially. And that the New England Patriots subtly vulnerable explain yourself surplus. I mean, what what's the definition of owner first of all and give me specifics. As to why you feel that way. I never gonna win the AFC east of believed that I thought okay? But for the first time ever, I I watched Tom Brady towards the end of last season and started to see a little bit of a decline. Those the first time ever I've listened to people say I can remember they they got through five picks against the chiefs years ago, whenever it was like it's over, you know, and that was a joke and a few years ago everyone's ago there, you know, the the run is done but gronkowski, and I know they've won games and playoff games without him. But gronkowski was was the guy for Brady Brady's started to decline a little bit. I mean. Would you look at the numbers, and they're they're still really good? And most teams would love to have it. But I see a little bit of a decline in him. And they lost trait flowers. They lost a lot of good players in the off season. So for the first time ever, I look at this patriots team and say, you know, I don't I don't expect them to win the Super Bowl, and I don't expect him to get to the Super Bowl. And that's the first time. I've thought that in many years super funny great choice choice by Dan labs.

The Sports Reporters - Episode 414 - The Consequences of Being Unvaccinated in Sports. Big Opening College Football Weekend

"The award winning journalists new york times bestsellers not topic out of bounds. No opinion left unsaid. An institution for sports talk and information. This is a sports reporters. Here's mike lipka. And bob ryan bought ryan of the boston globe and espn. I have michael lupica. Mlb dot com and the new york. Daily news of this is the thursday pre labor day weekend version of the sports. Reporters podcast Mitch is in haiti. Doing god's work with his orphanage down there so ryan and i will will try to soldier on and as always as always bob. If i'm going to fast for you at any point You just you just let me. And i'll i'll literally conversationalist downshift okay. So so we're gonna talk about sports today right all right. We're going to start with a bob. I was talking to our dear friend. Bob costas yesterday. I was saying to him on the subject of the unpacked just as sports. I mean i. Obviously there's a larger issue of the country. Just the backs of sports is is dumb a moment the way. It's is dumb a moment in this country. As i can. I can ever remember. And and the trickle down effect continues to affect just about everybody a noted baseball man from with a great name. name bob. Boone quit his job with the nationals. Rather than accept their vaccination mandate. John smoltz an allied are not allowed in the studios at the mlb network. Because they won't get vaccinated. Chris ballard the colts. Gm said something that more executives should say yesterday that there will be consequences for the unvaccinated in bob with the knicks and the nets. If guys who don't get vaccinated they don't get to play in in in new york city and on and on and on and bob right there in your town. Two things have happened. Camden gets cut by bell. Check a dope. Think it didn't have something to do with him. Not being vaccinated and the un vacs on the red sox couldn't even reach the eighty five percent threshold which a bogus number anyway are in the process of trying to sink their wildcard. Chances take any of that. You want ryan. It's been suggested that the red sox are giving us a simulation of a relegation when you look at the lineup that they have to put out there which is a postponement and we're turned down by major league baseball. It's you know what major league baseball saying bob. Screw you if you can't get your players vaccinated. No no they did. They did make a request and they were denied. Poor game out last night but the fact is that they are paying the consequences. The consequences are there Including a very interesting site On tuesday evening when after Hitting single ride driving in arriving at second base Xavier zander bogart's was pulled off the field waived in by manager. Alex cora upon the newsday he had tested positive So that's an interesting site young. I don't remember ever seen that before. Yeah everything you say. Of course i do totally endorsed. The concept of the inanity of the anti vaccine are the tax deniers vaccine refusers Of course the consequences and we're not far from. We've hardly foot the football season's just about to begin and You know there's going to be some some starting. Qb or some very important player that on the morning of the game is going to be deemed positive. His you know that's going to happen So yeah we. I don't even know he's working for the nazi. I had no idea. Boone have been. Bob look it up. I thought it might be someone else with his name was seventy three year old. Bob is bowed son of rape old father of arab third on the all-time list of games caught if not second Yeah the the the great boom family. Yeah i mean it's it look at. It doesn't ended. It doesn't end it's not ending. It's not even close to ending the consequences of of the covert in vaccinations situation in our sports. No it's not cost ending bob. It here's the thing and for the last time as we have. This conversation is sports starts to look like once again. The capital of stupid ville. Okay stop saying. This is a personal liberty issue. Stop saying that you have privacy rights. There are no hip pepper protections. Here okay. This is a public health issue. This is a public safety issue. Okay yeah you've got personal liberties. Yep yep yep but guess what your personal liberties. Don't let you carry a gun on an airplane. Okay your personal. Liberties may allow you to sit in a restaurant crowded restaurant and light up a damn cigarette. Run a red light if you wanna take it to to to to more that same analogy bobby dot com salutes. Sell at the I it is not a matter of that but the thing is that there are people. Well we'll start with the head. Football coach of the new england patriots who yesterday Point to make a point in his nine answer as to whether or not covert. He had nothing to do with camps release and he also addressed the topic when he was pressed about. Vaccinations saying well look at the number of people who are testing positive who went back have been vaccinated. Therefore you have to look at that and You know he's basically saying look at the numbers coach. Look at the number. The percentage of people that are getting this thing that is the response to that response. But he he. He fell back on that as a defense for anybody who isn't vaccinated on his team. He fell back on that. Which is very disturbing by bob. Bob that aside you have watched this man for the last twenty years with that team okay. Is there any part of my dear friend. My mentor my big brother bob ryan. Who doesn't believe that. The non vacs cam newton got his ascott. I think it was an easy tiebreaker. That's the thing wouldn't it wouldn't be for me by the way where i end position to make having munich a decision on circumstance and if if all things were relatively equal that would be an easy tiebreaker for me. would be the guy who's unvaccinated would be the one who would go It the you can make the football arguments about why that was done. And leave the vaccination issue aside. I and it's gonna be. You'll never get him to admit it or point at all and especially when he was issuing a defense of the unvaccinated yesterday so i dunno mike. I'm not so sure. I think it was. I think it was a football decision. Point raid lobby. Just give me one second. I'm going to read to you. A quote from chris ballard okay and if we consider the the unvaccinated where blind here the sight impaired while in that world okay. The one eyed man is king. This is chris. Ballard there's consequences to not being vaccinated. Do i think everybody should be vaccinated. Absolutely i'm for. The vaccine are coaches for the vaccine. We have a lot of guys on our team. Who are for the vaccine is one hundred percent perfect. No but it's a good thing it can help you from ending up in the hospital in a critical situation and it helps stop some of the spread and those are the positive things but for the guys who've chosen to not get vaccinated. They still understand their part of this team. It's their decision. But they're still part of the team and they have to take care of the team and what he's saying there. Bob is that the unvaccinated are no different from the unvaccinated. Anyplace else in this country. They are being irresponsible. It's beyond selfishness. Okay it's beyond being stupid. They they are putting other people at risk. And bob i will say this again and i understand that. There were problems originally with the polio vaccine. Can you imagine if there were a comparable situation to polio in the nineteen fifties and people were given the maxine and said no. I don't want that. I'd rather spend my wife in. Remember our dear friend. Eddie miller at boston college okay. Spending his life in leg braces. Yeah no i think that's a fair referencing. The was many things that i think are. True and fifty said are true today about the way people respond to certain situations so yeah absolutely unthinkable. What would have happened if the vaccine had been rejected. Robert okay again. We have had this conversation. Okay i i have written about this multiple times. Imagine last year when the world was indoors when the whole world was masked where you couldn't. I couldn't go see my parents okay. We're we're a cough. A cough would make you get paranoid silly. Okay madge with empty stadiums all the rest of all the stuff that informed our lives last year. Okay bob imagine if somebody had said but there's a shot you can take the begins to return the world to normal. What kind of idiot doesn't take that shot. Well one if if if it's way of your being told to take it there are people who automatically get their defense mechanisms. Who in full gear. You know this is the thing the freedom thing we come back to us people. You know this whole liberty in nonsense. You know this. Oh god you're right. You have the freedom to to pick out which stop signs at. Stop lights you wanna follow. You have the freedom to not signal when you're changing lanes of the highway but are you stupid enough to do it and put your life at risk. This is the same thing that they don't see it that way. They just don't typically when you got the when they see it as framed as way belichick frame it yesterday for well. it's not. it's not one hundred percent luck. Guaranteed anyway you know. It's not one hundred percent. Always ask him. Hey coach you'd get. Did you get a shot at coach if he did get a shot. Why did you get a shot. Whether it's one hundred percent. Sure or not so. I mean it's how we can go on. It's it's very disturbing. What the thing about the word that is used that is the operative word is consequences They have to. They have to understand that there are going. They're going to be consequences. We see the consequences of the red sox. Being one of the team not may not even. We don't know how close they ought to eighty the vaunted eighty-five percent special all we know they're not there and We see the consequences. Eight guys on the list and three coaches right now So including their best player yeah. It's that's a consequence and we're going to have them in in football. It's going to happen on the day of a game some going to happen. I must commend you if anybody thinks. We're being harsh or or hard or over the top on our condemnation reference. Greg doyle in usa today today from what barkley said. Oh okay. I haven't you can go with greg doyle. He took a carson wentz to the woodshed And about his pasta position and his posture on annette colts team I recommend a the people. Go secret out yes. Go ahead mister barclay. I'll bet park. Who said the same thing. He talked about unvaccinated holes. Okay and he's right and he's right. Okay that's what they're acting like when they don't act like they have their heads up their asses. Okay and smoltz and lider known both who have worked with john. Smoltz have known al lighter as met. And as a yankee and when he was working for yes and all that stuff okay. I wouldn't just make them work remotely. If i were the mlb network. I would fire them. I would people start getting fired. And then if they want to let them go to court okay. And but there's something else bob that i want. We live in a world where we have injury list up the kazoo right. We have injury this all the time. This guy's playing this guy's not pointing this guy's questionable. I want there to be a list now for every team and hypocrites. That's bs argument all from from the jump. Okay i want to know which players on the team. I'm watching have been vaccinated and which ones haven't been vaccinated. I want to know at least have some context. When a guy like zander bogart's gets pulled off to feel mid game the way he did. I know. I have a pretty informed. Opinion with the yankees. About which guys have been vaccinated. And which ones haven't i know some of the reasons i've heard for why they haven't from from being trumpers right on the line. Okay but this stuff might sink the red sox okay. It hasn't sunk the yankees okay. It seems like there i. Their last big wave of cova may have subsided. But you never spike the ball on this thing but the red sox are in great peril and we could talk about their bullpen and with a starting pitching and all the rest of it. Okay but if they missed the wildcard by a game. Bob fans have a right to say okay. Which which one are you guys. Put our team in peril. Before i talk about the development regarding attendance at red sox games which begin on friday night. Remind everybody that we're happy to be brought to you by geico. You own your home. Sure you do. And i bet it can be hard work you know. It's easy bundling policies with geico. Geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or rental insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. It's geico easy. Visit geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com. When we folks. Enter fenway park on friday night. It will be as masked people they have. Inst- have reinstituted the demand For masks on the outdoors ballpark and and In the back bay. Boston on friday night. We're going back to masks about that. Good good because that that world. Okay that is the world wrought by the unvaccinated that is the world wrought by people who won't look at the facts and the science. There has never been a moment. Bob in our lifetime where people have been more anti science than they are. Not but you know why not. Okay who the guy was the president before the guy was president. Now hydro queen cook cure kovin. Okay he's thought bleach might be able to cure kobe. Okay and so here. We are here we are. I forget what night that rudy. Gobert walked eighteen months. Bob let it was march twelfth. Okay so you circle that that. That's the historic date when okay okay a year and a half later okay. A year and a half later people are given the means to take off those mass. Okay and come back out and guess what's being happened bob. They're being herded back indoors. Did you ever in your life. And what what. We're going to move on and talk about things that bob did you ever in your life. Think you would see headlines about the nixon nets not being allowed to play home games. Because of of this vaccination issue no not you and thought that would have been very totally positive development Speaking of new york new york teams moving on a little bit Where where when does the bad news end for the new york. Mets believable unbelievable. They're they're acting. Gm got picked up for dwi dui. Yesterday i listen bob. The best part. It was the mets coming from a mess function at the owner's house. Right and bob. I wrote this on sunday. The daily news others have written at since. Okay but what. Point to steve cohen. Start throwing money at theo epstein. At what point does he do that. Because not only. Is theo the great white whale and who knows what he wants to do next. You know we he is. He is the brooding prince baseball. Bob you know this okay. And he has lots of options but why would it be crazy. For steve cohen. The richest owner in the sport to do exactly what micky arison did twenty five years ago and not only bring him in and hand him the keys to the kingdom but give him an ownership stake it well because bob that ownership stake from steve cohen. Whatever money that is won't affect a single day of the rest of his life now. It's just an ego thing. I think if stink if that would be the impediment. Because it's theo as is on record as his next stop if it is back with the team is would include some kind of a equity stake so he said that would be the only way you'd be able to get theo. So you're right. It's not gonna hurt the bank account too much. no no. that's an interesting contract. I know i know people forget how. How young he's still. I mean you know so you get forty years. I mean really so that would be. That would be interesting. But the new. I couldn't believe when. I read this story that yet. Another neigh- met mess. I guess what they're not out of it That's funny thing. They're not even out of it. In the east i mean. I don't know if to grandma's gonna pitch again this year but you know you have a right for all of the circus stuff. That's going on there. How different this season would would would look at city field. If degrom had been healthy all you. I mean the way he was gone by the way There was another fascinating too for us amusing. I don't know how he's taking it development with the mets this week in with mr baya's in his dash to freedom that wonderful runny scored tonight. With which is this highlights which highlights a tremendous athlete. He is yes. He lost a diamond. Stunned i don't know what its value. Was they went out and they they conducted a search right and couldn't find it do you do you call mike That when manny ramirez loss similar a piece of jewelry Many many years ago and it was the third base somewhere and manny being manny. His big stock answer. To thinks is doesn't matter those it matter and he was shrugging off. The i think it was worth fifteen grand anyway. But bob bob. What about those. What about those guys you see on the beach with with the metal detectors. How could it possibly be lost. I had home plate at city field. I mean i don't know. I don't i don't either dallas another so on on the on the ever entertaining saga of the new york. Mets one little interesting chapter. I ryan now that we have now that we have Move the conversation to the sport that you say is the greatest. Effort vetted by mortar minds. Okay guess who's in first place in five bobby who you think might be in first place albeit by half game albeit tied in the loss column in the national league west. Who do you think. That is bob. The team with the most good player so any team. That's that that it's finally coming to foolish wishing yeah and they got they got six innings at max Sherzer and yeah. They moved ahead a half game. Head of the giants on the las com. Yeah this is you know. This isn't the i would say. It was inevitable because the giants have been you know not faltered really all year but This could be their destiny. Sure sure yeah. Nobody should be shocked at this obvious. And bob and i'll tell you something The sherzer thing if they repeat is will go down as is important a trade deadline acquisition as there has been okay because we baseball you go back through history. Yes there have been a lot of moves like that for veteran hitters and veteran pitchers. Okay but bob. I very rarely has pitcher funny. The last time it was this profound. I think you. Maybe i'm forgetting somebody was ver- lander. His max is former teammate. In detroit going to the astros and helping pitch them to a world series. At dave roberts is telling me the other day bob just profound affect not just shares. His talent has had on this team but his professionalism. Okay the way he takes care of his business and wh when when the manager of a team that just won last year is talking about a another former champion. they picked up in this these kinds glowing terms. You can see no move if they win is going to be more important than them. Get max scherzer for the national. I don't think there's any question that about that. In this year. I was thinking about the so similar in a profound midseason acquisitions. The one that gets a little bit lost in history. Because it didn't get the final fulfillment which is the world series but it did get them to postseason rick sutcliffe. Do you remember that one. Yes one yeah house. I saw i was there. Was there what he lost to. The padre sent them to the world series so but Yeah and of course. This one is good and now what the deal he was. He pitched despite this Hip situation last night and listen. Hey guess what. He almost missed out on winning the world series with the nationals because he woke up with that stiff neck before game five and that's the reason why they had them for game seven that year and bob i will all for all of the brilliant games. The max scherzer is ever pitched that game seven most which he'd left behind that night okay against the astros. There were runners on base all night. He clearly did not have his best stuff at somehow. He kept them in the game and it was as impressive performance about his athletic character and his heart as as as as his arm at night. That's yeah that's true. Well some guy professional use of that nature. There's a lot of guys would talent but then there's that extra something this extradition is say. You know that some of them have that enable them to do stuff like that and he clearly fits in a category at bob he continues to go to the play and not be able to get on base which i forget. How many okay. So here's his stats with the dodgers ryan okay. He didn't get a win last four. No he started six games. Let's see what is earned run average. Oh yeah it's it's one point two nine. It's it's an ear on average to granville okay. Since he's gotten to the dodgers he has pitched thirty five innings. He has fifty strikeouts at the age of await for it. Thirty seven Yeah now he's at now he's going. He's going to be preparing cooperstown. Speech some bob. Here's the thing about the dodgers. Yes they have more good players than anybody else but they're great players haven't been great this year for various reasons. I mean it's it's almost impossible to believe that a former. Mvp like bellanger is still under the mendoza line. It's it's like and and mukhi guess what. Mookie who's been dinged. Up has not been mookie and go ahead. I predicting a big september for mookie homers last night. No i've said but a tyler. I watched the dodgers very closely because my fondness for the manager. Okay but he has just. It has been yet. It's been down your for him right standards. It's been a little slow you guys. Also i mean with the sherzer thing. By the way he had seventy five pitches. They pulled me at a tight tight a hamstring. So they got him out of there but but just the dodgers bring grabher. All you have to run home. Run their tie the game and then they come back and score two more in the eight. So they're just relentless team they have guys. Paul is getting it done by the way the other i call him the turner brothers trae turn now. He is just a lightning rod. He's been god how to watch. Play bass is awesome awesome player. I totally did not appreciate him before. Watch them play but he is a phenomenal basil smart. Iq way runs the basis way. He his approaches at bats. Just five tyler. He's got the best batting average on achieve and he is hitting a hundred fifty points more. Bob he's hitting one hundred and fifty points more than beller. Three twenty two one seventy to do the math on it right. Yeah but even in this off year which. We all agreed. Mookie is clearly having a slugging five one five and izzo is just almost nine So this is this is how good he is. And i think he's going to I think he's going to have a big september. I i hope he does because i love watching him play baseball some other baseball stuff. Bob i mean it's it's we've talked about the red sox and how covert is affecting them and and they did ask for a postponement and baseball good for them. Said no. you gotta deal with this. This is right. i wouldn't have given them a postponement. Either okay how about the cardinals. The cardinals bob. It's september and they never go away. And i'm telling you we. I mentioned the other day. We've gone the whole season without talking about the cardinals and they are right there in the wild card race with the padres and the reds and the phillies in the national league. Yeah they had that doubleheader with the register split one was a resumption of a complete of a makeup game. But yeah now they you know you you've you are probably their leading opponent outside the state of missouri You know and and i. I can't disagree with they are a hardy perennial team and Something about the organization we gotta give in when that happens when we can continually scientist. You know darn well. We have to start at the top. We have to start with organizational. So john jose lock. Is it quietly. Stays the course okay. He's an as he has said to me many times. They are not a big market team. But they have big market ambitions in saint louis and bob. You know this. And i know this it. There is no greater baseball capital in this country then then the cardinals who wants a long time ago that their fan base was described in the old days when they are the only west of the mississippi as wherever the camel exit signal reach in that part of the world yup yup and It is it is. They can lay claim to being the best. You know per capita baseball town in baseball. Over the last fifty years easily they can claim to that and It's it's a very worthy franchise. No no question about it now. Kids and and the yankees bob. They finally stopped losing streak. And garrett cole was great and his pitching the way They paid them three hundred twenty four million dollars to pitch okay But robert they spend a hundred and thirty million dollars more on baseball players than the team ahead of the Spence okay and and what that might get them and it the almost assuredly give the ball to cold because i don't think they will be challenged for for a wild card by the end of the regular season. Said they still got to play a one game season. And bob stuff can happen in a one game season including if that one game season turns out to be a dream match up for baseball and it would be garret cole versus mr chris sale at yankee stadium. I don't care who would be playing. I don't care if the if the somehow ruled that they would be playing The rangers You know you any. It's baseball wants the sport where on any given day. The worst team can beat the best team and we had almost had something happened this year. Mike that has never happened. in in An ad is a a season sweep of of a team in. Maybe there has been since you go to twelve but in the the razor eighteen and one against the i think the mets when they were great in the middle eighties one year were eighteen to one against the pirates. I'd have to look it up. But i know i know sure back then in the old days of one hundred fifty four game schedule so you played everybody twenty two times the yankees once twenty one and one against the st louis browns. But they couldn't get that twenty twenty one. I wish the orioles had had gotten their one and the last game because then we could. We could have had somebody on the orioles us. The great old fred for my dear friend vitas carolina's okay after he finally beach Jimmy connors nobody beats via scare. Light is eighteen times in a row. Yup i saw. Somebody tweeted after. They won the game for the funny book. Losing streak at that. Nobody beats orioles Know twenty straight times of question. Nineteen th one thousand nine hundred ninety eight they want they lost twenty one in a rough so so yes so i mean listen. The wildcard thing makes baseball extremely relevant in in in september. Bob a giants dodgers. September is every bit as good out there. Not just for our friend tyler. Breuer as a yankee red sox september sure would be in the east. This is something that is deeply rooted in the romance and the history of the sport at bob. Here's the best thing about it this time. We didn't see it coming now. No 'cause giants were once this has been it's very interesting. It's unlike anything else. In sport. an are four major sports because the robbery was relocated or over an off season and in one thousand nine hundred fifty seven fifty eight off season. robbery was relocated from from greater new york city To the west coast and picked right up where it left off immediately. They the giants and dodgers establish themselves as the rivalry feeling was established immediately and part. I'm sure an fan base because the fact is that l. a. And san francisco such distinct cities which distinct distinct identities and self Self images and so right away. The pounding of chest on a civic nature attached to these baseball teams and so the the robbery has been going on now for over one hundred and you know twenty years. Basically an it's wonderful. There's no there's no other comparable circumstance in our sports and ryan tyler. I believe those two teams play this weekend. And i think they are the sunday night. Baseball game is that not right. Tyler i think i think the dodgers and the giants are going toe to toe this weekend. Which is with a lot of stuff going on in sports. Would you not watch those games. I think i got some plans this weekend. Nice little labor day we all right some baseball we got a potpourri of stuff to discuss the rest of the way ryan college football back in a big way and guess what in the first week of september we got some heavy hitters player this week and we've got guys who are playing to enhance their brand mike for the first time in history of college right you've got guys and playing to enhance their brand to build a built in their brand. I've got got a what's the oh hidden. There may be even be an apac. Wow we Lexicon hidden agendas going on now. Who knows but yeah no kidding. This is the first time we're going to have competition involving athletes who were able to profit from their image and likeness and already we've got documented Cases of of players making six and in some cases seven figures are slated to go there. Now it's complicated. But at least i know it's gonna to create drama on teams bob but good for them good for them if they could make it. I applaud them. And but i wanna talk just while we're on the subject of college football okay and we again. We've got some interesting games. Georgia ohio state ohio state tonight right. Yeah let let me just run you a quick couple couple games. Quick ohio state minnesota to kick off. Tonight i mean that's big ten minnesota good. You've got bama taken on miami indiana's plane iowa louisiana who's twenty three taken on texas penn state wisconsin which is game. We'll be broadcasting. I can't wait for that. Notre dame florida state georgia clemson. Lsu ucla byu's playing arizona unc. Play in tech and michigan state's playing northwestern. I mean we one. No i've said this is this has got to be the greatest. Labor day of yellow arrows ever amazon usually. It's whoever states in the whatever. Whatever seventy five zero. i mean. these are big game so kudo some of the schools playing some big games in week one because you know if you lose more than one game. You're not in the college football playoff anymore. You got two losses. You're out so these are this is awesome. This is a really fun sports. And i'll tell you something else. Just on the subject of alabama. They are coached by the greatest football coach in history. You can talk about bear bryant. You can talk about vince. Lombardi could tell bell check in what he has done what he has done to to make it sustainable to be the best team every year even though they've lost their lost championship all that stuff. Okay bob i believe. He's the greatest football coach of all time. What i like about well. What what what is it admirable about. What he's done is the way. He has shifted gears in his philosophy. They've gone from ground and pound to do completely featuring an aerial circus now. And which is what. Valid chick finally had to do an in new england. Bob the same thing he had to finally aired out to keep up. Let me hit you with one thing. As i was coming today. The last eleven years alabama has have the top recruiting class and the over the last eleven years. Top recruiting class. Out of nine of them naiad last eleven top recruiting classes. So now he's obviously. It's so amazing. The even he couldn't do it in miami when he didn't have players in the nfl. Okay and but bob him not being able to do it. They're changed football history. He addressed a topic Saw cuna with him about my miami and and you know he he just feels you know his his self defense is season much much more comfortable in in college. He cited some reasons why it didn't work and i and it was right. It was a very good benefit for all for all college football or these except for your opponents to play him on a given given saturday at one game. One game that. I've just think we just don't wanna gloss glossing over think of the times in years past ten fifteen years ago when we would've not said i'm not saying florida state. We would've said none her dame and florida state headline absolutely bob and by the way one more reminded that we're sponsored by gyco. Do you own or rent your home. Sure you do. And i bet it can be hard work you know. It's easy bundling policies with geico. Geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. It's gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com. Is there ever going to be a season. Ever ever ever ever even if they explain the tournament where somebody will believe. Again that notre dame could win a national championship. I doubt it. But i think but i i. I just think that those days are over. But been i've been. I've been a notre dame skeptic for a while. So i'm not i'm not i'm not the fairest person to ask that question one. There is a big event going on and golf. A tour championship begins today in atlanta weather. Permitting okay bob. And i will watch it okay because you know. I am a golf nerd. Despite would you say guess what. Guess what did it help me the other day on. The golf course tyler. No it didn't know it did not it. People began a lot of balls the other day. Myself tyler mike plane. Companions started to doubt whether i was still right handed. Okay that's how badly i played and bob tyler. There was a point on the back. Nine has actually started to make pours. And i rolled in like a ten footer for par and playing companions and the caddies go crazy and i turn around and look at them and said i don't want your bleeping pity everybody left. It was such a mercy. All right kids think about the tour championship. I want them to stop advertising it as the biggest event on the pga tour. No no no no. No it's the richest event on the pga tour. But it's not a major sat the ryder cup. It's not the it's not the players championship. It's not any of that. They throw money at these spandex playoffs. T y to make the post. Major season remain viable and something that people wanted to watch but at the end of the day. It is a tricked up money event. All the way to bobby yet. You know how you go crazy. Because on the last sunday you need a slide rule. Okay to figure out who's gonna make who's who's done on the bubble okay at least college basketball. If you're the bubbly got to win. So i i get all that okay. But this idea that they now go there with this thirty man. Field and patrick can't lay patty ice. My new hero starts at ten under the guys at the other end started zero. Bob go on go on no no by way. I know we talked about it the other day but i just want to have one more final say i think jay monahan is going way over the top in in in this thing this. This fan chastising this. I don't even know. What did he say he say. They're gonna throw people you get anybody yelling books. He can get caught. You're going to throw you out. Good then period. I'm like that. Yes i do. I think this is golf. Pomposity at its worst day. I'm it's the these these people of turn this into a wrestling crowd. I know it's not a dirty word. I know it's not brooke. See it's not the b word. Okay bob they have to stop this okay for all of the stuff that shambo brings on himself and we have talked about this he does. He does not deserve okay and in a lot of ways these people are pulling him yes he ought to be able to take it and ath- jackie robinson heard where i get all that. Okay that's all. What about is okay. They have to they have to nip this in the bob by the way they gotta stop it before. They get to whistling straights for the ryder cup. That i agree. But i just i'm jay. Jay is my man. go jay go run. Run like the wind okay. Well we're we're going to. We're going to politely agreed to disagree on that topic. Well five that has happened before. I mean i try. Bob and i have disagreed before. Have we not you have. I would say well look. I mean i mean by the way. Put the ten stroke. Starring with ten strokes tidal tyler tells. It's a tricked event. Maybe give me ten strokes but pros. I mean come on i. They're trying you know what in in an odd way in an odd way. This is baseball's wild-card concept trying to make it meaningful to win the division. Bob do you agree. They because they wanted to matter that you end up at the top of the points race. Yes no no question. I think there was a better trying to put more weight in the regular season. I guess you know they make that more important all right anyway. Somehow ride i once again have gotten to the end of this pilot. Cut a time party shots. This week's park shots are brought to you by wait for it. Gyco whether you rent or own geico makes it easy to bundle home and car insurance. Geico dot com today. Bob has there ever been a greater television campaign in history to the geico commercials. Either with the gecko or not like the gecko. I'm that way by the way that gecko could really talk. A lot of people. Don't believe that. But i believe tyler i'm telling you that gecko talk. Yeah he actually sent me the copy today find it. So we're as usual. Everything sounds bob tyler. Everything sounds better in a british accent. Oh it's time for a product shots ryan leads hurting seven thousand eight hundred and eight that with the attendance last night to see as worthy entertaining down rural a team as there is in baseball. Speaking of course of the tampa bay rays. Yeah yeah i know. The stadium stinks the stadiums on the wrong side of the bay. I've heard all the excuses now. The fact is that since two thousand one. The race have finished last in the american league in attendance. Fourteen times yes. They've sort the next to last this year. Who way seven thousand. Eight hundred eight to see a terrific first place team. Of course the marlins of likewise finished last in the national league fourteen of the last sixteen years so perhaps there is a moral to the story concerning the state of florida. Seven thousand eight hundred eight bet. They could draw that many. In kodiak alaska seven thousand eight hundred eight this is what riley oh ca. The other day weighing in on the controversy about wait for bathroom breaks the. Us open tennis. that is now all the rage quote. I think it's ridiculous i understand. It's getting press because tennessee's lame and the tennis media sucks terrible for the media. The press of never step foot on a tennis court in their life have never been in. The environment. couldn't last thirty minutes out in this humidity. In this heat he went on from there. Got it because the media has never walked set in the big guys leaky shoes. They're not allowed to have an opinion about the ordeal of playing tennis in hot weather. But here's a question propublica. Are they allowed to have an opinion the next time he sucks and he's terrible and gets his ass kicked in perfect conditions asking for friends in the tennis media. That's it for our thursday. Just how. I want everybody to have a great labor day weekend. You can find gus everywhere. You find your podcast in effect. You can find us. You find a lot. Easier than hobby by is going to find his diamond earring. Okay spotify stitcher pandora anywhere. You get them. You want to leave a comment. Leave a comment. The there's a reason why we put the band back together and it's it's because we're still having so much fun doing this twice a week now instead of once a week away. We used to do it on television on sunday. For my dear pal. Bob ryan for the great tyler. Breuer have great and safe labor day weekend.

We were like to sponsor a kid a teenager that is looking to get healthier into the program. So thank you so much for all that energy that you have given us since joining now with that. We're going to get into this week's episode workout smarter not harder the new way to train for a marathon are you is set or running a full or half marathon. Would you wanna do you wanna say goodbye to those old school methods. Because there's a better way to train for your race. One of the reasons why people don't like run is because they were never taught how to and then when they hear people's like you know i'm going to go run a half marathon and or i'm gonna go train for a marathon and this weekend. I got eighteen miles to run. It doesn't sound appealing to people. It's scary wants the wants them to run away from running but listen. Follow this new method. If you're ready to work out smarter not harder. You're going to crush goes with less time spent training and more energy on the track using this uperior method of marathon training instead of painfully. Pulling yourself through that last mile. You're be laughing your way over the finish line and wonder why were so easy. And i'm a testimony. I'm not only a client on the player. President may let me drop that. Mike on that. Because i felt this. I've done this so the thing happens that one of the things that happened is people over train right so i'm guilty of it. I wanna run a half marathon following this old school method to a t- then i'm out their training my members and then i couldn't figure out why i kept. You know if the schedule call for twelve miles this weekend. I breakdown in model levin and so i'm like all right. I did eleven miles last weekend this weekend. Only calls for a and our break out breakdown miles seven and it was when i when i signed up to a class that jeff galloway was hosting when he told me. That's a sign of overtraining momentum. All right okay. Well what can i do about. It and i started working off of one of his schedules. That was way easier than what i formerly was going off those old school methods and following his training. Got me jumping across the finish line. Fill in great. But then i found something else and kind of marry the to kind of make him out. You know what. I'm saying you you might buy a cookbook. And there's a delicious recipe on there but it might just be missing a little bit of spice so you decide. You want to alter that and make your own kind of what kind of what i do. So how do how do people go about overdoing it right. It's it's a common practice for runners to over train and over eat before race. Most people try to run fast or longer than they'll need to actual to actually complete event for the big day. It sound sensible enough right so for example. When i did with my old schedule i will have to run fifteen miles. Take me over the thirteen point one to be ready for the thirteen but the numerous on training method challenges the way that way of thinking another time. Belief is that loading up on carbs before will give you the fuel needed to get through long distances. However the more we learn about fueling our bodies on a clean energy diet the better we can prepare ourselves for running a race. And when i think about this. How can i put it on when i think about going over you. Know changing your mindset. It's kind of hard. It's kind of hard to to break old habits or You know when things doesn't seem to add up or make sense. It's kind of hard for us so excited right so we may have heard you got a car up. You know i i do. I practice intermittent fasting. Going to raise in facet st twelve hour fast right. I don't carb lewd with a bunch of spaghetti. Different things like that. I may have some extra potatoes the night before. Okay maybe that's my former cars. But i don't feel that it's totally necessary so what we want to do. Wanna stop training so hard in the weeks leading up to the marathon to write to dutch. Experts have partnered up to develop a better way to train for a marathon. That doesn't require as much time. At distance as traditional marathon training routines does so a triathlon triathletes. And a two thousand. Fifteen arm in world champion. marley's court is a hero among mother Mother runners so the reason why this is so important is because as a parent whether you are a mother or father that fifteen miles that i would run in order to prepare for just a have if i broke down because i was tired one of the days i it was kind of wendy rainy. Misty wasn't totally raining. But it was one of those yucky days. Man i broke down after about twelve miles. I had to walk back to the car three miles or so i was done. I was cooked. That took me like three and a half hours. Four hours. your family's home weekly you know they might have plans. Wanna do something with mom or dad and you don't have all that time so having this being created from a mother but yet she's a iron woman world champion. You know what i'm saying. It just works. And what i was going to say before when i kind of lost my thought was sometimes people overeat before a big race. And don't you know the end up gaining weight as their training for a marathon overestimating. How many calories. They burn films. I remember that one day. When i took me a long time for that run. I ended up going to five guys. Which guys let me let you know that i am going on a fast food fast for five years. Say that fast fast food fast five years. You know what i'm saying. I'm not going through anymore. Drive-thrus ever right for five years. And i can't say ever but you know five years feels like is forever but i'm good. I'm not even. Tim did trust me right so but i remember that one day i ended up going to five guys and getting some large fry and i ate it all. I was planning on bringing some home. We want wanna fuel up with clean fuel. Let's go back to this this nine mile marathon thinking in her book the nighmare marathon marley's reworked also race training method. That doesn't allow you to have a life star. Running her goal was simple. Set a family friendly routine that allows you to train easier and prepare you to run a marathon faster. Consistency and discipline is what makes her methods so effective instead of running every day for months and months marley's devotes a period of ninety days to train for a marathon. That's right you can do. Twenty six point two miles just training in three months during which she runs three times a week something. I've already been established. Since i started the the program. If that wasn't a good enough how about this. Virtually all runs will be nine miles or less for the entirety of the program. And so there's two nine mile key runs i. My my running days are sunday tuesday and thursday. So it's a nine one. On sunday. there will be a nine mile on thursday and in tuesday. I do As you feel run. If i was far on this i'm tell you a little bit about my story a little bit later and if it works for her and it worked for me because although i didn't i never ran twenty six mile run before because of my Workout regimen was so daunting for the half marathon training. I said let me give this a try. And if i give this a try maybe i will get my sub to our half marathon and it worked like a charm. Actually my mile. Thirteen was my fast as one that never happened ever in my life has that been Usually if i am a nine minute premiere runner. I can maintain maintain that for ten miles and then all of a sudden mile. Eleven twelve and thirteen will will get progressively worse. After one time trying the nine mile marathon method mild thirteen was eight minutes and sixteen seconds. My fastest mile. I got better after malton and it was. It was amazing. And we'll talk about how i transition and use this for half marathons too so you can. You can adopt a schedule like hers right. We're going to leave a lake of how to follow the schedule as well. You know you can pick up her book. Read that but we're going to leave it on our blog. Go to our show and we'll leave a link to this blog. You can click on any links that will take you to where you wanna go but as i said you know you can either do it on your own but you can also join the key. Calmer onto the best you because we're going to do it as a team. We're going to want to have support and you're going to have someone wanna walk through because it's not easy doing it alone. If it was easy everyone would do it right. So let's go to pre race over eating actually over by all right so once again all school methods they may have worked back then but with. I mean we're in twenty twenty one so we have learned a lot. So it's time to ditch the old school carb loading. Tradition athletes had adopted over the years. Sure loading up on. Carbs will provide energy. But it will also slow you down and interfere with your body's natural metabolism marley's agrees that it's better to eat clean foods and keep a balanced died all the way up to raise day. This is how you train your body to burn off the existing fat cells. Why would you overflow the gas tank of your car when you already have what it needs in the tank plus you you can have a red can filled in the trunk like if we were going to go on a trip. You're not going to like once it hits four that's it you're not gonna just keep pressing that nozzle and letting the gas flow all over the side of the car and all over the tires. Where's it going to go so if we overfeed. That's going to slow you down right. I remember a couple of months ago. There was like a gas shortage and they were getting people. Please only fill up what you need there. Were people coming with all kaiser stuff listen to me. Listen to me. They were common with extra cans weighing their vehicles down. Some some vehicles was catching on fire. Because they didn't have the proper container to hold the gas. So what if we're over. Few lenore bodies. Where's it going to go. That's why there's times when you are sluggish trying to get through that marathon not only. Didn't your training work right. But the way you fueled up your body also can be a hindrance on ray race day so what you can do is celebrate after the race with a nice big meal. Go out with your crew. Gets them pancakes. Whatever his early raised or save for date night later that night celebrate. I remember one time crossing the finish line though and it wasn't that i did terrible. I just did not like him. I was one hundred percent happy with. My time wasn't terrible but i had a half marathon the following month so i had went into that day thinking. I'm going to celebrate with a steak. And everything like that appetizers all this stuff. This was when. I was counting calories using my fitness pal up and it was amazing to me like my mind. Said said you know what i wanna do better at next month's race i wanna eat decent even tonight. I'm not gonna use food as my celebration for this particular one. And i got to the restaurant star counting the calories just the appetizer low. If i was the share the appetizer outta had six hundred calories with that. i had plans when appetizer. A beer stay will listen to steak. Was like a thousand calories for the stake. I ended up not getting a beer. I ended up. Not getting advertiser. I went with like the steak and maybe some french fries or something like that. You know tweaked it a little bit. I didn't go all in. Like i had thought that i was going to do just because instantly my goal has changed. I wanted to do better at the next race. So talking about changing you know we use technology to tweak are running style and pace whether you love or hate the tech gadgets. As a runner. It's much easier to improve your running style and pace with a fitbit or apple. Watch and in my case i have the my zone is a heart rate monitor as well and so that would actually Indicate with my zone. For example i get an email telling me my heart rate in when it spiked and went in and such. And that's good valuable information you can even use a digital watch to time yourself in control. Your pace set an interval timer and use the run. Walk run method remember. I talked about actually combining the two methods. Once i learned what marley's was recommending and took her test her mild test. And i got my heart rate up very high and then based on my ten k. Time i was able to see where i fall. I should've fell that like a training my first time at one hundred and fifty four beats per minute and that's slow me up in the beginning i was like then. It takes patience because of those light man. Why does doing like an eleven minute mile faster than this. You know but i forced myself to stick with his stick with it. And as i do the ron i noticed every mile will get slightly faster not too much but slightly faster but i tell you what it was saving my energy for the big show the atlantic city marathon series guys once again. I can't talk about them enough. Amazing people over there. We want to sign up to this. Get you trained up. You'll have a great time. So the run war run is going to help you to avoid injury and fatigue right by using that method. You probably heard of hit train. And by now of course because high intensity interval training has been gaining traction in the workout community for years now and common run to the issue. We use hit in our running. But we call it. Run walk run. It's easy helps you reserve energy and go further farther at a consistent pace using interval timer We were run for a short time than take quick walking steps to arrest before jumping back into running the form of the run walk and run depends on several factors such as your age or your running experience History of of of injuries. I personally set my intervals to about two depends on the type of race that i'm doing for the half marathon. I do about a two minute on the twenty second world break at mess around with three thirty thirty and i played around a not too long ago At one twenty twenty mess around with it. But it's all based on my mile times when i did seven minute mile. The nashoba me that i can actually bust out three thirty thirty so i messed around with that. It got to the halfway point. Felt a little more comfortable with two minutes on the second break. It's all customizable. I may but everything goes off on my mile time then. That really tells me where. I should be on race day and so if i was take the interval timer match it with my heart rate you know if if the book told me that i should be at one fifty four but i'm running and i'm at one sixty one sixty four. I'm still within the zone and then when the won't break comes it. Brings you back to one fifty four. So as perfect is perfect for me So once again pace yourself. According to heart rate it's a lot to get into. I could take a break right now. But i'm gonna I want to give this to you all in one shot. Then we'll take a break. And when i come back we'll meet jessica young so when it comes to pacing yourself according to your heart rate. It's key for runners of any age. It doesn't matter if you're older or younger or whether you're watching your heart rate for health reasons heart rate monitor training is a mind for approach to keeping your heart beating at a steady rhythm to improve your running time and increase is nanna use a heart rate monitor like the one built in the apple. Watch for fitbit to figure out your resting heart rate and your maximum heart rate so on my apple watch. I don't use the health app. I still use nike run club. And if you've touched the phase the using the nike run club. It will cycle through whether it read your time. Your average pays your cadence your heart rate with apple watch connected with your health app boom until your heart rate so when i use the my zone it's actual strap that goes around your chest and then you download the myzone app on your apple. Watch and what i like about. That is when you raise your wrist. It tells you that you're in a yellow. That's where you want to train when i'm in the red. He's going to fast and it's too early to do that. Let me get my breath back on the control. Let me slow it down a little bit. And then i can work back in the yellow. If it's green. And i'm having a hard time getting into the yellow then i may have been overtrained in a couple of days before that and it's kind of hard. I'm a little tire. I'm kind of dog in it a little bit. So the recommended target for your heart rate. According to the mayo clinic and american heart association is moderate exercise intensity fifty percent to about seventy percent of your maximum hari. Okay so this is important if you actually rent went out there and ran a mile as as as you can right or you jog the lap than the second lap. You picked it up. And then the third latin picked it up and then the four flat was running. Like you. Like your hair's on fire. your just sprinting. And then soon as you can't run anymore they stop you check with your heart. Rate is because your heart rate starts coming down pretty quickly so this is say it is if you had up to two hundred beats per minute. I'm just rounding up to keep the math simple then. Moderate exercise intensity would be one hundred beats per minute right so vigorous exercise intensity is seventy to eighty five percent of your maximum heart rate and guys. So that's what i'm actually running. I'm running at training nine miles for example if i was training for the marathon and at about eighty to eighty five percent of my maximum heart rate and once again when i use the zone then it's yellow is showing me that you're right here and i love it because it says eighty two percent real big that way i don't to squint to see what the heart rate actually is. So guys be mindful to pace yourself wire while running. If you keep your heart rate within the rains best for your body you will increase stamina and avoid burnout once again. No one wins metals and practice. So don't be sprinting. And going super hard trying to get your best time there because guess what you will actually kill it when it counts. This is how you should train leading up to a marathon and it will keep the same pace throughout worse at this time. I want to give a little plug to the jasmine tea. Bryant brighter day five k. july thirty first twenty twenty one. There's a link in the show notes for you to sign up for that event. There's gonna be some giveaways of bags and this to help raise awareness for minority mental health. All right One of our members mccoy his cousin theresa is putting the the dawn asked. Our help to reza is the mother of jasmine who passed away due to mental illness. So we definitely want as many people to come out and support that as well jessica. Young will be doing her. That was supposed to be her a narrow five k. Was she already walked through once a beneficial for because she she knows what to expect on july thirty first. So let's get back into this this topic here right. There will be a sample schedule on our website to train for nine marathon type of thinking. And what i want to say. Is i tested this out myself and was able to because my half marathon training was vigorous. This scene like something. I could do and i was like if i could do it then. It will show me that. I have with it what it takes to run a full marathon but perhaps it will give me my sub to our in that. It did that but the most important thing of my take away was that i was able to get eight sixteen for that final mile and then i wanted to start teaching it to more members and so that because many of our members are parents and so they start taking me up on it but they said a code. Since we're not doing a former on it makes sense that we only do four and a half miles on two days a week. So i was like. Let's doom and i forced myself. Even though i have what it takes to do nine miles two days a week i forced myself to stay to four and a half to five miles or see what will happen. Don't you know. I only lost a minute in twenty seconds off my fastest time. Then i continue doing that route with the five miles of four and a half five miles training. And guess what happened. Actually cross my personal bests in january of all out. Nicole should have been going to disney. Should've been going to orlando in january. But due to cove it that was canceled and it was termed virtual so we signed up for the virtual event had run it in like twenty nine degrees here in new jersey and only training and five miles which was perfect because who really wanted to be out there extra extra miles during the wintertime. But i got my fastest time in january. Then follow that up. I got my fastest time again in april like this is continuing to work for me. I'm just every race okay. I got my fastest time in april. Twenty twenty lost lost about a minute and twenty seconds in october of twenty twenty but then january twenty and twenty one. Both rate both half marathons that i'd done Got my personal best. So you're planning to run the half marathon at the marathon event in october. If you want to train like marlee court. Like i said we wanna leave lincoln how you can follow that schedule for best results. Trained with me. And chris ballard katie airs matt airs on normal coy. That way we can help keep you on track. We also when it comes to your eating. We also do a health next call every wednesday so we train on tuesdays and thursdays and on wednesdays we get together a resume and do that health connection. Call see what else. I have here before i take a break. So if we are to make the switch to work smarter just want to remind everybody this is not a fad or some clever spin or the some of the same old thing that might nine mile. Marathon training is real. It is innovative. It defies logic the conventional thinking after all. How could she possibly run a faster. Rate with less effort using lighter training schedule. It doesn't sound like it should work but is backed by new scientific breakthroughs in here at key com. Run to the best you. We wanna cutting edge of science. The court borrows from the research of dutch. medical experts. stand then dear poll who prioritizes accumulative fatigue avoidance and energy supply. Switch if you're wondering what that means you want to check this out a f- a means you should run at a pace that provides longevity and stocks you from burning out in a row training run walk run method etc The es as is what happens when your body exhaust fuel from what you ate. Today and switch is over to burn the fat cells in your body so our own walk run method and eating for clean. Energy is in alignment with the same science that inspired marley's courts marathon training approach now enough of that. That was a lot a lot of information. Hope that we were able to digested. I hope you were inspired by it. Right and right now. We're gonna take a break when i come back. Please stick around. Because i want you to meet jessica young. If you haven't met her already she was on a podcast talking about her introduction to the program but we're gonna get hurt thoughts on what it was like to run the lars virtual five k. We'll be right back. Do you own a business and are looking for a creative way to bring in new customers sponsor. Our podcast and you can have this spot right here. A thirty to forty second commercial every episode three months for only ninety dollars with most of our listeners. Right here in atlantic county. This will be a great opportunity to bring in new people into your business. events arrested. Email us at coach should at gmail.com. Today all right. I'm here live at the south jersey field of dreams where our tuesday training just got out of control. We just played kickball. And i'm here with jessica young jessica how are you doing. I'm great. that was a lot of fun. It was a lot of fun. i mean. you know. Everyone's clearing out now but it was a lot of people was a lot of hoopla wasn't not Came into this program at a time. Where we we throwing in all types of new stuff and Like your second week here. All of a sudden the ultimate frisbee game broke out and now doing Kickball how important is how important is it to you realize that running has potential to enhance a lot of areas in. Your life is very important to me. I mean the fact that i played ultimate frisbee. I don't think i would have been able to to play it. One sec buddy kaye. I know i'll get it for you in a sec. We we got. What's your son's name. I want to declan right. Some my man is here and how old is declan. You're six years old man. You wanna say hi to everybody how he was all star when our team and he kept kicking and getting into the bays man. You had a lot of fun. I had a lot of fun so continued. Continue throughout abou- taken. This up has helped. You said it's it's really important to me. I mean so. Obviously i have declan six. I have a four year old shea home to and to be able to play tonight. I was racing declan outta the outfield. And i feel like i would not have been able to do that and then keep playing and you know scored twice so i you know you know joe jessica. I was sucking win when we're playing ultimate frisbee game and then you ran by me was like i'm practicing the breathing techniques that you taught me you know yeah So you were supposed to run your very first five k. On july thirty first you. Ashley put that up twenty days ahead of actually participated in the lars run which was a virtual five k. on july eleventh and Take us through Finish that it was hot out. You know what i mean. There was a little challenge but take us through it. How was it for you Honestly i went into a pretty nervous because until talking you i was under the inception that even though we practice thirty thirty when we do a race like five k. That we would try to run as as much of that straight as we could So i was very happy to find out that we could do the thirty thirty still and That makes it manageable to me. It's you know i. It's too daunting To to think about running a whole five k. Without stopping But i struggled a couple times Felt a little nauseous. At one point. I think i was Pushing a little too hard Trying to keep up with. Chris oh it was a good thing. She's motivated me and pushing me along but You know the reason i wanted to do. It was to learn some techniques. And and how i can do better for july thirty first so I think i did that in learning how to breathe a little differently. And you know just what to expect i it was. It was a definitely a great warm up To get your mind ready for that But also was hot and humid. So you had the pace yourself when it when it comes when it comes to the Thirty thirty or the thought of his too. Daunting some people you know. Obviously they have no problems running the whole thing and if you wanted to. I have scheduled to train to run the whole day nonstop. But you know it's funny to hear you say that you thought that but that's what the one mile test is all about it when you improve on your test like you. Did you actually improve the attest so much that you can do. Sixty thirty now but for that particular race. We kept you at thirty thirty and you do it. The whole time in the science the mathematics. It all works out. You'll have energy. You won't be tired. You have struggles here and there but you have the energy to finish it through and It's we we work in This article is talking about work. Smarter not harder in this. Philosophy is one perfect way to do that. What do you say to our listeners locally here in new jersey and those that's online because as you participate in lars once she she forever indebted to you she you see you see like like she wants to support you. On july thirtieth. So what can you say to our listeners. That is listening to this day. Just do it. Honestly i mean i. I'm someone who who's you know has never been able to run or i didn't think i could because of breathing issues shin-splints get sore The breathing issues really really tough But honestly if you learn the right techniques then you know you can do it. You can do more than you think you can. While i'm proud of you and this is this is just the beginning. July thirty first is going to be amazing for you now that you know what to expect. Thank you so much for your Your share awry guys. Let me give you my final takeaways of episode one hundred and eleven. And i am so thankful to new members like jessica young showing up ready empowering themselves taking on walking and running as a way to get in shape for their families. Jessica is a mother of multiple children. You heard tackling. He was super excited to be there. Love kicking the ball and kickball day at the part south jersey field the dreams. It was a spectacular day. If if my interview seemed a little disjointed yes we were keeping our eye on declan as he would just having a ball out there running around in the playground and you know trying to break loose a little bit. So i apologize for that but sorry but not sorry because you guys understand what. It's like having children so we had to keep our iowa ham and you could just here in this mother's voice and Once again we're just getting started so our final takeaways from episode one hundred and eleven work out smarter not harder than new way to train for marathon. Just want to remind you guys. Don't overdo it before running the race once again. They don't give you medals for hard practices right so you want to train smart and have all the fuel necessary for a good res number. Two we talked about. Don't pack on weight by eating the wrong foods. Right people gain weight training for marathons sometimes. But if you're smart you eat clean and run off of the right fuel source. Technology can be good or bad thing. If you're going to use technology make sure that is going to be something that you can manage and read and use those readings to enhance your running us interval timer if you choose to use the run war run method and you can actually use that in conjunction with heart rate training because it will actually help when you spike up high. You won't be running hot by taking a walk break. That will actually keep you sustain longer head over to the show notes.

Overemphasizing Character in the Player Evaluation with Brian Decker

"This show is brought to you by safety. Welcome to unapologetically bold. I'm not sorry for if you're a person that has tired of apologizing for being you you know the human part of you that sometimes bills like it has to be different at home versus work versus play. The human savages wants to be hot humble open and transparent about your desires. And if you answered yes this is for join me. Emily adolf into conversations with mazen guest about what they are. Not sorry for creative. Let's get started. Hello everybody welcome back to another unapologetically bald. Not sorry for an so blessed today to have a new friend here with me brian. What ron this is going to be a fun conversation. Because i don't even know how we got connected. But i did not even against lincoln stock your whatever beforehand but you have like these amazing accolades ahead of and you're just the first time i met you. I told you this. And you're one of the most unique people in your curiosity how you care and just your cost at learning and i get that a quicksand not told you this. There's very few people. I've got that that quick. Hit a bob from so. I've excited for my listeners. To learn about you today so for the people that don't know who you are wrong. Just give a little background. First and foremost i my husband. I father and i'm a coach teach and mentor in really. I've made it kind of my. Life's work to help others as they strive to research. Potential of what. I'm able to share is is the wisdom gained from having a really unique background experience combined with just a lot of self study so i spent twenty two years in the military where are retired. Isn't lieutenant colonel special forces and the last job. I had iran selection for special forces and one of the things that we really emphasize there was the character. Make off of the people. We were selecting. And then i've been able to turn that into an opportunity to work in the nfl. For the past. Seven years to cleveland in the last five with the indianapolis colts enrolls comedy and now the director of team development for the an apples colts has so cool in what it makes. You think of is a book that you actually recommended the art of impossible that is so good listeners. Not check out that book it. It is talk recommend but one of the things that also talked about in there is about how did having more of a diverse background and how it can help you get in to see more in the process in essence. You can what Out in what i'm saying. Is that people that are big generalists income down after figuring what they're passionate isn't what they're guessing. Talents are and that's what i see from. You also is why you can be so good. Be so quick on figuring out what people need but there are some key important things we know that talent has to be there for you But i really wanted to stab on an what. You're not sorry for so round. The question is or he no longer apologizing for well i am not sorry for over emphasizing the importance of character in the player evaluation process. Tell me more. Well i mean. It's a game of talent. I've been fortunate to work in two fields. Where the product of the of the business is the talent you field whether that be green berets in special forces or You know players on the football field That's but i would say. This character is not a substitute for a talent. I kind of look at it like purchasing a car. You know your talent is like your base model but i upgraded with character and the really the reason why i think character is so important in that process is something that it's kind of a conversation that i have with our general manager. Chris ballard in he basically said you know. You're trying to take information in time periods zero In predicting time periods wanted to where a player's going to what the level play is going to be and that ceiling is their talent. That's the highest. They possibly can achieve and one of the things that he said believes. I believe too. Is that their floors their character so that creates the kind of the range of which a player can express and then i think were you get some synergies is when you put a lot of people around together that have a similar mindset. They've been acquired because they value the same things. We put it into a building where we emphasize things and i think it creates culture. We have a strong development and performance. Culture centered around the character of makeup of our players so powerful. Some that comes to my mind is a quote that i heard the other day and it was basically going off of that saying one bad apple can ruin the whole bunch but the thing is that it went even fathers like why are we producing trees. It produce bad acts and it comes down to the roots of an the character in the culture that you want to create for people. So what are some things that you found are underlying characteristics that you just need just general people they you wish people could have more of or would focus in more on their six things and i don. I think maybe six is to to go into you can tell me that But i'll start with the one. That i think is most important Is i look back through a person's background. Look at the people places and events that have ultimately resulted in a person to play they become today in some of the best to include green berets and nfl players have used adversity as a teacher. And they they have grown from that we commonly call that post traumatic growth. And it's during that time. I think that they learn a lot about themselves. And that process of recovering back to baseline and creating that growth. They become more resilient over time. And we all need to increase resilience because it's at the edge of our ability the boundaries of the ability that we set for ourselves allow others to set forest where opportunity exists so in order to go to the edge. You have to be resilient because it's going to be uncomfortable and that's really kind of you if you want to know if you're getting it right. It should be a little uncomfortable. Yep that's what we always say. Is we want you inbetween. Knowledge and excitement. It's nothing makes you queasy but it's like you're excited and you know that you're pushing yourself pass that zone and it also makes me think of specifically my daughter and she is seven and people might think i'm crazy for this like i'm happy that she's starting to see bercy at a young age Because what i have seen is i didn't get adversity. Didn't learn how to go through it. Until i was in my twenties and i had a child out of wedlock in the south while teaching bowel study so needless to say i had to learn a lot real quick but talking about that with young players. They're not hidden. And i guess also my experience also that i'm seeing with the athletes that i do work with in the collegiate ground. They're not getting adversity until they start to hit college. What are some things that you can help. Even if it's the parents to not helicopter or whatever advice you wanna give a bit out to help their kids be okay with. Adversity has worsened a stark hard hit with increase in saudi. Because they don't know how to deal with it. There is a great book. I think it's called the gift of failure in its written by believe the former dean of admissions for stanford university and one of the things that she talks about is how in order to go to top level institution like that that your life is essentially on rails from five years on five years old on your your heating these developmental milestones. That are going to set the conditions so that you can be competitive in this in this Application process and one of the problems. That i think she articulated was is that we continue to push people farther and farther right lies much like what you said. And they don't experience adversity. I i may be mixing up of empathy. The general thoughts were. I agree with this. Is that the farther you go right in life without struggle. The less your capacity to handle it because the stakes are higher. The stakes are higher. And so one of the things i think. And you can talk about parents and you can talk about coaches but we're all week. What's what's the saying you know. Don't prepare the road for the child. Compare the child for the road. And that's what we need to do in in in look at adversity as a good thing. It's an opportunity for them to go out there and developed capacity for resilience. And when you find that coaches are optimizing at too low a level or parents are really trying to do too much. It reduces the athlete or the child's ability to jump the capacity for resilience. They can't problem solve for themselves because what they've been taught to do is every time they hit up is to look external for solutions. So i i think. They lack that that internal locus of control or that belief that through their merit and sue their actions. They control their own destiny. in itself alpha alpha also seen as it impacts your confidence and if they one player that they have to have the ability to have choice and so they can be hoffa in there and what they can do not just on the field but also fill as well. So what's another You said you have six. What's another one at. You know the one thing that i think is the i think the most fundamental demand excellence in any desire. I'm mean when you look at the grace. They just have unnatural levels of desire. They have these highly. I think you understand what i say. They have these highly dopaminergic personalities they're driven. They have insatiable desire. they want. they want they want. And unfortunately in some cases it can be unhealthy. But that's the nature of it. So the first thing. I think foundational dacian is desire. You've got to want it because that motivation that desire that drive is central to developing high character. Resilience and i think those There's a specific type a drive. That's most important. And that's one. That's more nate. And in its in is based on internal factors and internal. Drive the problem with being motivated by external factors such as the light on social media or what someone else says about you. As in what you're doing is you're making your motivation. Contingent upon the beliefs of others in which so indicate. You can't had just a good not too bad once. You develop this thirst for you know you can't turn it off when it's not flowing well so my belief is your desire has to go for the nuclear option right. You have to develop this innate drive. It's going to fuel your success and so powerful Listeners know that. I'm a huge nerd on all this but it's that we call it. Dopamine is the raw teenage cheerleader. The body is that it is true. Those people they just one goes quick hits but it's more than that it is easiest because dopamine actually a great advantage because it helps you connect dots a whole lot better and it helps you to be quick. However that internal such is what we call. Operatives are loving grandmother. Is that internal low with your yourself because your husband. You know this as well so anybody. That's been married the first day or whenever you said i do was really more adobe main whenever you actually have had all those years with your spouse in light. True love is whenever you're endearing sock whenever you got in their view auto growl whenever you got to like clean the snotty nose like the the stuff that you don't wanna do going back to earth city and so is continuing that that that drive like you said but it's also talk about flow how important it is or weaken out on this probably hardcore but getting your body and your conditions right to stack your balkan kim holes in your favor and so just quickly talk about that on water. Some i don't wanna caught she codes. But what are some ways that we can expedi- these learning days learning procedures for people Whenever or maybe stop them ahead of time like the dopamine life the likes and stuffing so so i'll tell you a quick story how you can increase your performance to creating the conditions for flow or just learning in general last year. We were at a game away game. And i ask a couple of players on the sideline i said. Do you remember locking your doors at the airport and nobody not one person remembered it in. Why did they not form a memory around. That is because they were on autopilot and they were not using any sensory input during the course of doing that so it was just basically they were automatic mode right and that's not learning that's just execution so we did the same. I said next week when you go to lock your car. Put your thumb on the door and say door to say latch or handle in. So i did that in now. Months later is still asking when they all have a very vivid piece of imagery in their mind of that event in. So i still tell you all that to tell you this is that we have to use our five senses and you get out of six with some sort of into it feel but to come to the moment and i like to us like a dashboard speed. Archers are piano or whatever. But i think zeke of the three us on the dashboard performance. And you know on the on. The left side of that is the past as frustration and anger live. That's the critic. I call that person the critic. That's the first you and there's this other you on the other end of the spectrum. There's the planner. And that's fear. Anxiety exists in the future right in. Our mind is constantly going in flickering those ways. But if you wanna create law if you want to increase your ability to learn if you're the conditions must be set by being present in the moment everything you do has to bring you into the present so almost everything. We do players in the people that i talked to coach. It's it's for them to have that awareness of when their attention is out of the president to capture and bring it back to the moment. Because that's really you know when you get when you kind of integrate that with the resilience piece there's really four opportunities. I think to kind of grow on a resilience. I one is. We will increase our skill or baseline are based on a resilient so it encompasses the natural adversity of day-today secondly we want to reduce the spy elegant think of that cardiac spike that you would see on a ekg. How high despite goes in relation to a negative event you know and that's a because that's that's that sympathetic response. I wanna map at number stand it and what i wanna do is i very quickly want to create a pair sympathetic counter response to bring it back. I want to give back to baseline as big as possible. That is resilience. How quickly can you return to baseline in. So one is high baseline reduce the level of spike return quicker but dan create the post traumatic growth. That that you know fueled my resume my resilience in the future. I love that anybody that knows me knows that. Love everything that you said. Because it's so important we talk about getting your home. Stay for home plate. Homeo- space is getting your body back that home state and how important it is for you to own you instead of letting your environment own you. A mid also makes me think of never play video games that i've played this nintendo sixty four like the old donkey call this weekend. Oh batteries but christianity over this one because like the you know but also i think something very interesting. In all of this is the exposure making. Do expose yourself to harder sayings in it going back to your beginning what we were talking about resilience with it all so i want to go onto the third one. Is it there. When i love everything that you're saving have to ask you. This in these kind of overlap but they build upon each other but the third thing you find is incredible or cabinets or stamina. They just they a they. Don't get bored with details. They don't get tired with the effort in one of the challenges we have is we do. This cost benefit analysis. As you think of this inverted. You write reviews cost benefit analysis if we get better one unit of africans this skill but as you get better like one unit gives you half get your quarter one unit gives you now a a hundred of a unit of skill and what they do. Is we get to the point where we do. The cost benefit analysis seeing. What's really not worth it. Uses it worth the squeeze right but the problem is when you get to the elite level. Those small incremental gains inability. That you make have an outsized. You know. in your ability to perform that's where you differentiate yourself so. I think you see incredible work habits. They make which fuel are skill game in really which gets into the fourth one is. They really are smart in their field. And when i say smart. I'm not talking about like the crystallized intelligence you would get the sat or act but more the fluid intelligence that you would see from developing these vast mental models of their activity. They have you know. I think everybody knows what meant laws. Aren't there a concept that we can use to understand give to give broader context for analysis and understanding of something so they have these incredible mental models. And what they do is they have more detail and they see opportunities and patterns of others. Don't see you know if you think about it. You know what tom brady. Now is what forty three years old. I don't think his physical skills or what they once were. But i'd be willing to bet that his mind is as sharp as ever and when he looks at a field he probably with a lance intuit's more than most of us. We could write a book on what he just like. Season interprets without even consciously processing. And so he's got these huge mental models a sport and as because the one thing that in sport that a lot of people think is that we wanna think we actually on the field. We don't because if you are thinking if you have to go into your prefrontal cortex you're screwed Especially like the coles people at you at blistering speeds. You can't think and so that's where your habits come in to two very importance of much importance. Your also makes me think to this. One of my passions is whenever i've talked. Performers is after the season special. Very superstitious is having to do a rundown teach others especially in your group on water. Some of your ways. It may not be the correct way. But it's your way we all have our processes and i know that we talk about a competitive edge and we can get very comparative with one another. But what have you seen and just in your group on group thinker group learning like learning with each other not against each other. If that were you know. I think that's probably the ultimate goal of team sports whether that be a special forces team conducting direct action mission or an offensive decent defensive unit on the field. It's called shared in my mind is called share cognition. We all are seeing. The world who the same lands were interpreting and seeing the same opportunities patterns and i think caught one of his books talks about like group flow. You know. i think we all understand like individual flow. We all have been like amazon. Where time suspended you know. We just feel it feels effortless but what is it team but this cooperative mechanism trying to achieve a goal. What if we all can have shared cognition and we see and interpret the world in a very similar manner. There is redundancy insistent but most systems and the more complex they are. They're easily disrupted by just just unraveling a small piece of that yet. The more complex the easier. It actually is in his sales so counterintuitive. So we can forward was offensive on so the fifth would be is. I think they're just the greats are just. They're known for their ability to focus. They kind of if they go into something. Whether if i'm going to learn golf to learn golf i'm gonna read the five best books on golf. I'm going to watch every video. I can't on golf. I'm gonna go out practicing the range. They don't get their ability to kind of focus. Put the blinders on and exclude. Everything else is much as our brains love. It can be the enemy of perfection in a lot of seals So we like to think of in my own in my own since. I wanna be like the developmental ma. I call it the t model the t model. I have this broad range of knowledge in a lot of things. But i need one specialty. One vertical i have deep subject matter expertise in and so i think whatever that is for the athlete dumbest. They have to have that one vertical. They have that bill that ability to focus and really. It's you know there's a lot of people at to talk about. Like attention is the currency of performance. Right i heard that on podcast recently by era quorum in his right. Where are you staying time. Attention to energy. I mean that really tells you what's important life and it. I think the best have the ability to kind of really focused in Kush all of the noise in. I think that makes say go to the thought process of having core values are or knowing what your true star as almost like a filter for quicker decision making deals with your athletes yourself like we do in fact. That's an exercise. That we will do is and i recommend everybody you know before you had into troubled waters or difficult situations really reflect upon the things that are important to you. What's what's really important to you and then kind of do that self audit and see how are you using. Utilizing resources are. Are you spending them. Accordingly a lot of people will say x. y. or z. Is important but then when you look at their body of work you don't find you don't find that same level of commitment so to me. Don't tell me what's important to you. Show me know We use that a ally and it's very easy in corporate world especially whenever they say. Some things are top priorities. Like oh show me your budgets. it's really. It's really important that you know everybody will say about my people or my are our greatest asset Was look at that list. Listless unpack it. And sometimes they say they don't mean and i think that's one of the things as as leaders in a like one of the things i've found in our culture is is you'll find a lot of congruence between what we say is important in the decisions and the way we utilize our resources of things we prioritise. Now say for us. The two big things isn't Integrity that has to come in and with and and humility that ego can really can really take over. so i think that's five wasn't What's the last one me. I call it. Leadership call it. The x factor. I can call it a multiplier but the great not only are they great but they make those around him better to whether that's what they communicate the way they prepare the way they play but we all know like i remember whenever i got the special forces i thought and i know i was. I was very self driven. I i wanted to work hard. I i could do that without being around people. But i found that once i got into an environment where there were other people like that. I raised my game even more so to me. Multi they have this multiplying effect. They whether it's the way they communicate the way they interact the something about them but they make the people around him better. And if you think about it. Every team's got four were five guys every every corporation is likely when you look. There's there's these key people that have an outsized impact on the success of the organization and those are your multipliers. Love it I actually again. Back to my. My kids teaches in incorporate too but the mirroring neurons of our brain and what we are we want to emulate what we around also make this horrible joke. If you're round number of people at the tenth one you know. It's who we are around. And i have this conversation like i said with my daughter because we were at the lake house was a family and she started going out of character. And you're the leader. If you wanna be the leader you need to emulate that you know that these are not your standards. I know she seven but In before me. it's very important. At a young age to teach my kids character in understanding our body works and how we can be better and more beneficial for it and utilizing our physiology to our advantage to so specially with those people that have those leadership skills put down at the ability to influence other. They may not be good sometimes managing people but if they have the ability to continue to influence for positive and broke the performance. Hack like put them out there. Let them be with people are. That's the key thing. Because you know i think any you of leadership must include influence but you can be an influence without being a leader and what leaders do is get people to accomplish the mission and i think that's really when you talk about the integrity of a leader or if you think about leaders who go a thou- one of the things i think we all struggle with is when we look at a person and we look at their actions. We try to understand their motivations and intentions and long as we know that they're honorable And y'all support. Just 'cause i think we're we're willing to kind of we can get behind that it's when the eagle comes in and become self serving that i think we struggle because you're yeah in some of those leaders can be hugely successful. You know But you know. Think about enron are. I just watched the netflix special delorean. Or some of those guys. But i think a battery example of of like what a true influence or is somebody like warren buffett one of the richest people in the world three times. He has lost more than fifty percent of his wealth. Any never deviated from like his investment thesis. You know he's he's not dogmatic. He learns but he stayed true to his principles. He didn't chase the emotion or the ego of the situation. And he's been he's able to turn it. He's the third richest man in the world. And he's done it by doing right not only by himself but by his shareholders and at so important just to key in on that is i ethic that one hits on almost all your characteristics to is the habits desire going into the failure that comes in with it and just insistence in the habits so i'm so grateful for iran over at the end of our our top bought two part question first bar. People are apologizing for over emphasizing character. They may feel like it's too fluffy or like it may go with Goes against what. Some other coaches may be teaching. Like what would you tell them. I just think that once you've answered the talent question. Is this person good enough or they skilled enough to perform this job at this level or whatever that character then just become a multiple a multiplier of that you know i think you know and so what i think is once you cross that talent threshold. People wanna continue like go higher and higher on the talent brown but it really doesn't really necessarily is called threshold theory. I believe but once you cross that threshold. It's no longer predictive of success. So what if. I've got this incredibly talented person. And now i go and get this character. Then i'm more likely to be. I'm more comfortable. Predicting he can translate this talent and skill in his skill into performance. Any can do so in a way that that contributes to the success of the team less so important especially on that. It's not this may assist with we and it's not the merced aspect of it. Which is i have seen being one of the big stick rancher ater on people successes in their performance. Because you can't do it by yourself you even even this that solo sports. It's still not bother so they have a team that comes with them. So and second part is if people love what you're saying. How can they learn more about what you do or more about you or reach out. Well they can connect with me on lincoln I really i struggled to to like. How do you learn more about me. I mean like why would you wanna learn more about me. I'm just. I'm just like you know i just i just got a really unique experience Reach out to me there. I can share with you. Some of the things that have worked with me But i'm not so naive as to believe it'll work for everyone Just up in but the things that have just been really lucky. I've had some great people along the way that have helped me and pointed me in the right direction but most importantly believed in me in maybe believed in me at times whenever i didn't believe in and You know that's who i really. That's really oh now. And they're six or eight of those folks that you know. It's just been huge of i developed but reach out to me a link debt and i i i will try. I don't. i'm not quick to respond because of the volume of connections jamaica. But i'll i'll get. I'll get around to responding. And you know i do believe that. A lot of what we've done has application in the personal professional world mini agri and here. We go just to end this out. Did you hear humility as swear. You're one of those humble people and the other thing until this this other guy that was very high ranking in the military needs said. He's lucky i'm like adult. Believe in luck would believe in is character and habits which i think rouses all out. You don't get to a room with people without having those people will eventually find you out and see you out so broad. I'm just honored to have you on today and for all listed in. I wanna say this guy. He's gonna be continue to be a game changer. So tune in watch him at. I know you're gonna again probably have some humble statement at thank. You no thank you. Thank you for the opportunity to to talk about these topics. this thing. these things are near and dear to me and the one thing i would say on the all weaken all of us can do a little war on is just bad on people that on been on people That's a great way. Just end this to say that all people that on the people around you see the good ninety percent of the people are amazing yes. There's ten percent headache. Population still bet on people and bet on the good so they give you for all. Listen in all. It will listening lighter. I hope you have an amazing in bliss day. Thank you so much for tuning in this.

Sports radio 'swan heard brought to you by jersey. Mike subs be a sub above so free agency in the nba. This week Just reading all the media slobbering over the laker move. I'm like what people crazy and we're not going to be good because lebron and a have a long off season because they got bouncing the playoffs. So they're going to be good. I mean lebron on nine hundred ninety or not great player still very very good in a d. because we've all been ripping him because he wasn't in shape will come in good shape so they're gonna be a good team but all this nonsense they added. It's an it's just an antique store. Just a bunch of old guys. Nobody in their prime nonsense two teams. I thought crushed it. I said yesterday at the miami heat did a great job. Not surprising pat. Riley is probably the smartest guy in the league. One of them. Spoelstra was a great coach. You're talking about two high functioning guys high. Iq's no basketball scouting staff of the miami heat is highly regarded. They did a great job. I think the chicago bulls did better chicago. Got billy donovan is coach. I always thought was good and they got a guy from the denver nuggets very sharp guy. That was part of that building process. Chicago hit a home run. Zach levine is hyper athletic. I don't think he's a winning player buddies a he's an all-star like he's great young player they went out. And they added to rosen. Twenty point game guy again super athletic. Alex caruso paid. More than i would have for alex caruso but that was the market. Lebron loved him. Lebron love caruso plays real defense lonzo ball who got better last year. They can stay healthy. Fifteen point sees the floor and in march they went and got nicola vucevic in march. Who gives you twenty two a game. He's a legit modern big. Plus zach levine surreal team. There's a real basketball too in the east. By the way we have lamented the east for a decade. Miami and chicago are now fringe. Eastern conference champions. I don't think they're milwaukee. And i don't think they're brooklyn but we know how this game works janas gets hurt. Katie gets hurt a lot of this just health. I thought chicago hit it out of the park. There are going to be a fun. Watch and i'm not sure it's always. We've always known the west even if the east has the best team milwaukee. We kind of acknowledge most of your young stars are in the west twenty five year best. Thirty five young players in the west. But miami's a lot better and a chicago's a lot better. And i like billy donovan. Their new gm. If i live in chicago. I get season tickets this a real basketball team now. So it's fun. They've got a they've got a big man. Caruso is athletic derosier atletic levine's athletic lonzo. Ball is sneaky athletic defence great passer and which is a real big. He'll give you twenty two nights so you're going to the nba right now. They're four teams next year. That i think you're going to be in that. Sixty wind category again with health. I think the box even though they lost. P. j. tucker. That's at sixty team. They're gonna play with confidence. They're the champs. I think the sons the nets and the jazz their all sixty teams. I would put denver in there but jamal murray doesn't come back for a while. If jamal was back. I'd say they're a sixty winter. I'm not saying they're winning the championship. Some teams are built to in sixty games. I think the bucks the suns the nets and the jazz are doesn't mean. I think they're all championship contenders. But you look around the league right now. There's a lot of a lot of question marks clippers. You're not gonna have coined next year. That's not a championship. Team is a playoff team. No championship dallas. Well i mean will get better. But he's already great. They didn't really get better philadelphia. I like him but they haven't figured out the ben simmons thing portland just lost his kanner zach. Collins lost their bags and haven't made a move yet lakers dawn the oldest roster in league not just in the league in league history. So chicago's got real team. Good for the bowls the bowls front office and the miami heat front office. They crushed it. They did pat riley crushed. It guys in chicago did a really good job. Those teams are there better by adding pieces. I'm not saying the lakers. On a playoff team. Lebron comes back in a healthy. They're gonna win. that's a good team. But the bronze to appoint now we'd like to play fewer minutes westbrook multiple surgeries past his prime. Ad historically brittle the guys they brought. In outside of westbrook nobody brought in can give you moments of brilliance. And i. I hate this whenever nba teams make trades. Laker fans. Stop badmouthing all the guys that left. Kyle coups mma scored twenty five or more points thirty times dude. Kim ball he's inconsistent. He drove lebron crazy. But i never liked it whenever a team makes wholesale changes all the guys that laughter bums and all the new guys are great. Dennis schroder is better that every single guy they brought in except westbrook and he shoots better than westbrook not as good as westbrook but he shoots better than westbrook all right so. There's a lot of stuff going on in the nfl right now. It's it's very fascinating. Thomas dimitrov's one of the smartest guys former. Gm of the atlanta falcons director of college scouting for the patriots. He was a scout for four different teams had a long long run rebuilding the atlanta falcons. He now joins us live. Thomas good to hear you again. Good to see again. I've got some questions here. And i need your brain power. Okay so i thought it was pretty funny so kyle shanahan said oh just the best garoppolos ever looked. Go my lord. Well i'm not stupid. They just wanna make sure teams out there the market no that garoppolo looks and then john lynch is like oh trae lance is a mile ahead so there are also tried to tell the market. Don't you try to low ball on garoppolo because our other guys ready to play so that's pretty obvious stuff. But here's the stuff that's not obvious. So they did very well to get jimmy. Garoppolo second round pick got him to a super bowl. You don't have to win a traded. Pretty darn good. What would you do here. I would worry as gm about the locker room. You go five and one six one to start and somebody calls you. Desperate in the league for a quarterback gives you first round pick for garoppolo d your six and one thomas tate me through that the machinations now of what could happen for san francisco are really really interesting. And as a general manager and head coach. There is a lot on the table a lot of discussions at a lot of levels. First of all you have to remember no matter how you cut this colin there is no question in my mind that john lynch and and where we are with shannahan with kyle the very smart guys they wanna come out on top in coming out on top for them is to make a big time deal for garoppolo and have this young stud. They have rise to the occasion and hit it out of the park not to use a baseball analogy. But i am. That's what ultimately they need to do. So through this whole thing they need to make sure that it's pumped up that both guys are thriving. They're happy with both. And that's what makes both of them so much more marketable one to trade the other for the public to make them look really student what they're doing and that's very important. Did you lie. I like trae lance out of college. I worry about the scarcity of games. Would you be concerned at all if you got off to a six one. Start with garoppolo. And you're sitting there thinking he's ready to play but boy thomas if it didn't work if if he if he live bullets it didn't work you could. You could really lose the locker room. Could you not. Yeah there's no question and i would be. I would have my concerns in our league. We try not to use the word scared right. This was all semantics. I get it. But it's it's a concern. Of course trae lances very good talent. He is he has a long way to go. Of course we know that. But he's he's extensively moving along very well. That's really really important. I think in the end by having a guy continued to grow like he as quickly like trae land says it is very very important to make sure that he's hitting on all strides so that he can continue to take the team. I know this from matt ryan back in. Oh wait yeah. We talked about this and that just like my buddies at chicago you know. They're talking about making sure they ease their guy in make no mistake about it again as team builders you want your new guy in their role in right away and it's all forward And that's i think what they're thinking about. you know. i had nick right a talk show host on earlier. He made it very interesting comment. he goes. I can't have a quarterback that's fragile physically and emotionally. Okay and i thought that's an interesting line. You gotta like like. If you're a little emotional you gotta be you gotta be able to play every week so carson wentz is interesting. I said yesterday. Let's this is a this is a super bowl. Roster you got you got star players darius leonard quinton. Nelson's hurt but he's great. Jonathan taylor and pitman emerged as go to guys and everybody says you can't bring nick foles in so carson can't stay hill physically. I'm sitting here thinking. Pay this a lot of money. You gotta be able to handle nick foles in the locker room or is that just a nonstarter. If you're chris ballard like you just can't go there again you know. I was thinking about this situation. A lot to guys who are very adept. Football men and team. Builders and chris ballard and howie roseman right. Another make no mistake about it. Both of these guys in this league wanna make sure no one is screwed in the trade. This is very different than fifty years ago brother. Things are all about making sure that it's win win out the gate now once. The trade is is consummated and everything is together. Make no mistake also about it that these guys want to win this trade and how wants nothing more. I'm sure than to make sure that he's losing the least amount of a draft pick as possible. Of course. Chris wants to score on carson. We know that again. This is a very very interesting and intriguing movie that was made here and watch how this plays out is going to be very very important. I think once again you have two guys that are really smart. And they're in a really interesting spot. See who's going to thrive in this trade. Do you think philip rivers if you were. Gm would you call. Nick foles if i were if i were i would call nick foles. I would always call nick foles. Yes okay philip. Rivers knows the system was darn good last year is he viable option for the colts. Pay a million bucks a game. Come for six weeks he. He has definitely viable. I would. I mean you have to understand and i know you do that as a team. Builder you better make sure that you think that you can win. Not only with again the great ones. But then you can win with the good ones as long as yours surrounding in the right ways scheme wise player wise etcetera etcetera. You have to feel that you can win with a good quarterback instill guys that have some age on them. but really really are smart quarterbacks. That's important you know thomas. It's interesting the two great quarterbacks that really you've been connected to our brady when you were in new england for years and matt ryan and there are similarities there where they're not real needy high maintenance guys they're quarterbacks. They want to be heard. But i always feel with matt. You gotta get the same matt. Monday tuesday wednesday thursday sunday off season during the season. You get the same matt. You get the same brady. Not everybody's like that. Aaron rodgers is you know. I don't need to go into detail but he can at times be a little manipulative and brian. Gouden kuhn said something the other day. And i thought it was interesting. He says you know what i can. I can tell them what we're gonna do. But do i have to do everything he does. Am i not listening if we have our meeting. He suggests things. And i take somebody. I don't take all. Does that count as i'm listening and it does. It does bring up an interesting question thomas. there's just different personalities at this position how much responsibility does. Gm have to tell us star quarterback about personnel moves. Okay so this is how i look at this. This is this is again very interesting. it is to me. The difference between the integrity of management and coaching within an organization and accommodating the vital cog within your organization in the quarterback. This is complicated. Yes but in the very end. It's very important to make sure that you're communicating with your quarterback. You know that you can't ultimately lose this quarterback brian where they are right now and where matt is right now. This is again a very complicated situation. They need to appease their quarterback who is again very smart and understands football and understands the people he wants around him with the players receivers etc etc with cobb etc very important through matt my interaction with matt ryan and i don't want to speak for bill belichick because none of us ever want to speak for bill belichick. You understand that. The communication with the quarterback is very very important having the conversation showing the respect to the quarterback is important over the years. I definitely had conversations with matt ryan about players in about direction. He never wants the decision far from that. And i think that is vital for everyone in the organization players coaches management and outside the organization. Yeah yesterday we had somebody on the colts and he had. He said that. Peyton manning bill. Polian talked to peyton manning. He kind of knew the direction they were going. I'm not gonna guess on ballot check. Brady i mean let's just ask that. Did ballot check okay. I mean you're the director of scouting there to tom. Ever suggest anything. I'm sure they had conversations. I don't know the the You know the length of them in the depth of them. I just know that there were two men that understood the importance of being together. Everyone knows in that role. The head coach needs to have a really really intimate relationship with the quarterback. The gm does at a lesser degree. And maybe other other levels of course but the three need to get along no question. The head coach needs to be in charge of it. All i think as far as particulars and i. There's no question that he and tom brady had a great relationship very communicative relationship great. That's not my point to comment on that. But it was very very important that they were together. You know finally thomas dimitrov joining us former. Gm and the falcons for thirteen years and a director of scouting college scouting for the page. Thirteen years longtime last as gm in this league. It's a last lasted anybody. Brady's just crazy and lasts twenty. He's brady. I want to ask you about. We see this all the time. Cultural changes in sports in baseball. Now it used to be can't strikeout. Now it's all about. Don't hit a ground ball. No double plays. Nobody cares about strikeouts. For the fence basketball you can't take a mid range jumper. It's all about threes analytically in football. The cultural change to me is at quarterback used to be drew. Bledsoe played twenty highschool games twenty eight pro college games. That's it but he played basketball. He was in the track team. He wrestled now. These kids have coaches at eight ten thousand snaps by ten. What that means to me. Thomas is. I am not giving you three years like eli. Manning got with the giants to show me. You can play. I'm going to be more demanding. i'm gonna give you sixteen to twenty four starts. And if i don't see it you were way ahead of your predecessors and i look at. I don't see the arm the size. And i gotta be honest. If if if i'm thanksgiving. Am i nuts. Thomas with daniel jones into that by thanksgiving. I've made my mind up or my too impatient. I think there's an element of impatience. There and i understand where you're going. I do understand that because you want to be operating. This is a really really big year for the dolphins in my mind. I think they're operating really well. Of course have a great dealer. Respect for brian floors. Have been with him. New england and chris greer what they're doing is they're they're putting a lot into to of course they they know how important it is for him to really start to gel. Let there is no time to wait on this. They need to be again hitting on full stride. they need to be operated. They need to be taking control of that division if they can and this is the time if by thanksgiving they have to seriously look at. What's around the corner for them. And it's impatient and yet today's world not for long football. These guys understand that. I mean they have to capitalize app to capitalize. Now you had made mention a little bit earlier quickly as quarterback and gm situation plays out. Whether it's brian go to kinser other people around the league when you get general managers who by the way are making two and a half to three million dollars a year. And you're getting quarterbacks making forty million dollars a year that adds to the complication in the dusty nests. So to speak of situation with quarterbacks in general managers yeah. There's the best job in sports. Gm's and quarterbacks and coaches in the nfl thomas dimitrov. I hope you're having fun. I don't know what you're doing now with your life. You're a sharp guy. What are you doing these days. Look first time in forty seven years colin. I haven't been in a training camp thump from my dad's time coaching excedrins complicated. I've been with my my kids and my fiance everything that way of driven around the country. Sixty five hundred miles visiting with a lot of people. And i'm excited about that trying to take it all in well. I grew up in the pacific northwest. You should go to seahawk camp kirkland's beautiful in the summer john snyder. I spent some time there. I spent some time up in bend oregon which was fantastic and on my mountain bike. So i'm trying to do all. I can bend oregon by the way one of america's great secrets band. Sun river oregon. You know the people there and they don't like you to talk about that. I know it's incredible place in america. Nobody knows about thomas great. Thanks nice seen you thank you so much all right so sharp guy yeah. It is You get into this thing. I think it's funny. He kind of laughed. When i said that the niners are really going out of their way everybody looks great. Because they're gonna move garoppolo. And so i mean when kyle shannon's telling you is the best i've ever seen him. Could he take a snap and a game we practice. It's is some of these aren't even pads.

This is the third line news sponsored by mercedes bets the best or nothing will the forty niners. Continue to say that. Jimmy garoppolo is their starting quarterback but tree land did get his first. Snap with the first team at practice yesterday. Kyle shanahan said that was only so the offensive line could work on our particular play and gm. John lynch spoke very highly of what they've seen from the rookie. So far he's looked tremendous. He really has you know. I think what's been most impressive about trae. Everyone wants to talk about physical traits but the way he approaches his job. He's a pro in. It's truest sense And we've got a lot of guys who love the game that are willing to do the necessary things to prepare and i think trae really is an embodiment of that and He's looking good on the to they're really the to me. There are some really good teams in the nfl. There's some really bad teams. There's some really average teams. They're the most interesting team in the league to me because they have a lot of options. Here they can do a lot of things in his thomas. Dimitrov just said there. They want the market. It's gonna get desperate here. The colts already desperate at quarterback. So you can start looking around. I'll i'll say it again. You start looking around at washington and miami if things don't go right denver to me. Everybody talks aaron rodgers but vic fangio if they don't get to the playoffs he's at a work. I'll never get another head. Coaching job so garoppolo. I would probably just play him until the wheels came off. That's what they did with. Alex smith and mahomes. I plan but i could see them off to six and one start and able to get a player and a second round pick. I could see them. Doing thing is a good problem on their hands. They have two good quarterbacks. There's not many teams that can say that. At least you know they're not. The colts have to good quarterbacks that moving into the nba. The lakers have been very active in free agency. This week and their latest acquisition will unite lebron with his good friend. Carmelo anthony mellow has agreed to a one year. Deal to join the lakers. After spending the last two seasons in portland call on this kind of feels like lebron james real life. Space jam lakers addition. He's assembling all of his friends from. He's bringing them all together. They're great players some a little past their prime but he is creating must watch tv. We will be talking about the lakers and this lineup. Probably more than we would have now because of all these names on the roster you ever ever friend and you see him once or twice a year and you're like we gotta get together all we gotta get to get and never do and you never do. They never make ear like real inner circle but every time you see him you're like oh my god we've got to get together. Can i have your number. I think i lost it. There's a reason you don't get together. Carmelo anthony's been lebron's guy for fifteen years. Why are they just now getting together because the lakers are desperate. I'm excited to see how it's gonna rolled. I'm nick right side here. I your banter back and forth was incredible nick side on this one. Well the warriors have locked in steph curry for the foreseeable future. He has reportedly agreed to a four year. Two hundred fifteen million dollar extension with golden state. This deal makes him the first player in nba history designed multiple contracts worth at least two hundred million dollars now. The warriors are currently projected. Ninety seven million dollars over the cat for next season which is the highest in the nba. No cap space remaining. They'll have to pay the luxury tax. But they had to keep steph curry. He is the franchise. Well he's not only the the best player but he's also i think just the cultural glued to the franchise. He's he's he's the sole it was even when katie was the better player. It was steph team. Yeah some guys are just it. You know. I mean they're they're just they're certain guys when your when your soul is your best player like kevin durant the best player for the nats. But i don't feel like he that's going to be the last place he plays like some people kyrie irving. That's not going to be the last place he plays like. I just it not that derek. Jeter wouldn't of laughed. It would have been so bizarre to see him in a rays jersey. Kobe and the lakers. Yeah i just stay there. He feels like the rebirth of the franchise. Yeah alex the news. Well that's the news and thanks for stopping by heard. Lie so speaking of carmelo. I'm not a huge fan. But you know he is all famer when you're down to a short stack of chips it. You're playing poker and you're down to a small stack. How do you. How do you catch up. You put them all in. And that's what the browns doing here so mellow has been attainable for lebron for the last four years he could've had good ad for four years. Why now why now. What are the options. The bronze in his nineteenth year. He's been hurt. To last to the lakers are jammed up against the cap and deep down nobody trusts. Abc's health and mellow can make baskets and lebron doesn't teach have to teach him how to play. That's why lebron now finally is willing to play with west broken mellow. They're great talent but they're not winning players they're not mellows. Never gonna winning player. Westbrook's not a winning player. Almost everybody that plays with westbrook is better when he leaves or they leave. That's not that's not a dispute. Any basketball fan knows that the bronze had opportunities his whole career to play with a lot of guys. Now he's willing to do it. Why what else are they going to do. Lebron's max and these max and they're sports illustrated ranked the top fifty free agents. They had kendrick. Non twenty-seven maliki month forty eight at a fifty wayne. Ellington didn't make the list. Mellow didn't make the list. Trevor aretha then make the list. Dwight howard didn't make the list. Say we all have that friend that you bump into twice a year and you're like oh my god we got to get together. Only do when everybody else canceled the trip to vegas. That's when you call them your run at options and the lakers. This isn't the dream team folks. They've run out of options. So it's not that they're not going to be a playoff team. Because i do believe there's a psychology that this is going to be as good as anthony davis last year or this year in the playoffs. They were up on the phoenix to one. Anthony davis was healthy. So again i think the are gonna be good because anthony davis has heard the non straw stop criticism. He's earned it on tick-tock and instagram and talk and players say they don't hear stuff they hear stuff. They hear everything if they don't hear it they're buddies doing they're buddies. Tell them they see it on their social. So anthony davis has gotten crushed coming into camp out of shape. And i think he's going to have a great off season he's heard it. He'll rebound and do great. Most players are not self motivated. Most players aren't lebron. Tom brady in russell wilson they get content. You know you know by the way. Aaron rodgers declined declined to climb they draft jordan love. He has his best year in ten years. You think that's a coincidence. Like most players have to be even a lot of the great one task to be pushed. There's very few kobe. Bryant's out there. That the just the killer instinct on a tuesday night against denver. They don't care. That is very rare. I asked tony gonzalez. One time said how many people are truly committed like nutrition training a three percent. And i remember tony gonzalez. When he was in the middle of his career. I bring him on talk shows and he would be the off season. He's like. Oh i don't i don't eat red meat. I worked out twice a day. I'd tom brady doesn't drink a beer. During the season that is very very rare most players have to be even good ones have to be of pushed. And i think a d is one of those guys where he's going to age quickly because of the injuries and his lack of body commitment but he's but he's heard the chatter. He's heard the criticism. And i do think he'll have. He'll come back and have a very good year. And that is what will make the lakers. Good none of this other stuff matters. You're not leaning on kent bays more and wayne ellington in the postseason. Those are those guy those minute shrink. They won't be big players in the rotation mean you look around. This league.

We're going to tell you the story before the story happens. Todd bowles just signed a three year extension as the defensive coordinator of the super bowl champion tampa bay buccaneers. That means todd. Bowles is the next coach of the tampa. Bay buccaneers when bruce arians retires. That's why they're giving him a three year extension because he's gonna get a second chance to be a head coach they don't want him to hit the market because they're going to he's got he's done an amazing job as a defensive coordinator of tampa so brady has made it. Sound like forty five. Maybe the end arians will leave when brady does he will. Bruce already retired once he got a lot of money and he's he likes to. He likes the social life. And bruce not one of these guys whose desperate so what that what that tells you now in tampa that todd bowles will be the next coach of the tampa. Bay buccaneers. it won't be this year and it may not be the year after but they're going to give him the gig he's highly respected and he'll get a second chance he did some really good things with the jets. They just couldn't they couldn't get it right so the fascinating thing so carson wentz is now out from five to twelve weeks from today not not not five weeks out of the nfl season two week. He is out from five to twelve weeks from today. Bucky brooks says. Don't get nick foles. Don't get philip rivers. Go the kid you have in your roster. Now i actually believe the indianapolis coahuila position to be fine and whether the storm because when you look at this team. This team isn't really a quarterback. Centric team is a team that was built for the offensive line. Their running game they have three backstedt can get it done defensively. I believe there could be a top defense Matt eva fluids has done a great job of getting this defense to play and so it will be a more conservative style than did fans are used to seeing in indianapolis but running game defense will give them a chance to keep it afloat and to carson wentz returns now again five to twelve weeks from today so best case scenario he could be back for week. Two against the rams. We don't think that's going to happen. Worst case scenario he'd show up sunday october thirty first against tennessee. So if you look at the colts schedule this is why. I think you have to get foles or philip. Rivers in the worst case scenario is that he comes back for the jets. Well let's just look at these games. Seattle that's a loss would jacobson rams. That's a loss at tennessee loss at miami loss at baltimore blowout loss. I'll give you a win against houston at san francisco loss tennessee. I think you're gonna have a hard time beating. mike. Variable and ryan tannehill with jacobson. So you could be two in six or one in seven seasons over season is over and because remember if you look at the colt schedule. It's not cream. Puff city the rest of the way. Yeah they get jacksonville and the jets but then they're at buffalo in tampa. There'll be dogs in both those. They've gotta go. They play new england at arizona those are coin flips either way with carson wentz. So to me you know. Somebody told me something years ago. It was some of the best advice i ever got in my business. When you do this for a living you have to have either an agent or a lawyer. Because i don't wanna go to my bosses and negotiate my contract. You know it sounds real. Buji like who. I've got an agent. There's a reason actors have agents. there's a reason. Tv people have agents. otherwise i'd have to go into a room an executive and he tells me how bad i am. He hasn't wanna pay me. And i have to brag how great i am and it ruins the relationship so in our business you get either a lawyer. I've done that before. You get an agent and i've had multiple of both the smartest thing any of my agents ever said is companies. Decide a year before you know to get rid of you. They make a decision twelve months out. You know it. They know they're not impulsive. They are paid. Executives are paid in all sports to have a plan. I remember when i used to work at the other place. One day. I just bumped into a guy named george bodenheimer he was he was he ran. Espn very smart guy. And we were just talking one day and he knew i like business and industry and we were just blah blah blah blah blah. He had a ten year plan. Because i know what we've got a five and a ten year plan so don't don't kid yourself if a company wants to get rid of you as a quarterback. They made their mind up. And that's where. I would say this so chris. Ballard of the colts is a very conservative guy. He does not spend a lot of money. In carson. wentz was a roll of the dice given his injury history and he just got hurt. Remember after twenty twenty two carson wentz. You can get rid of them. There's no cap it none even next year. It's not that bad. i think. They've made a decision to draft a quarterback next year first round. I absolutely believe that that is not that they don't like carson wentz. But when you're these gm's in this league these smart guys. They got five year plans. They're looking at the two thousand twenty four high school college class. they're looking at freshman at alabama. They are miles ahead of you and me. So you're looking at in two years. There's no cap for getting rid of him. We knew it was a risk. He just got hurt again. And chris ballard san. I don't spend a lot of money. I'm not a guy that just opens up my wallet and buys dinner every night. And you do make a move. And already you're imperil peril. You're already backed into a corner. Colts roster to me is too good. There's no real needs now. There really isn't good enough to win the super bowl. It's not perfect. Know left tackle. You're taking a guy who's coming off an injury. I think they could use another corner. You know you're gonna need jonathan taylor to keep getting better michael pittman but it's a super bowl roster it's a really good roster star linebacker star receiver star back. Oh lines without clinton nelson still good. He'll be back sometime week. Five or six. But i i do believe that people executives make decisions based on a thought an agent. I had years ago. And i've always thought about that. Is that they know a year or two out there. They're moving off. People your chris ballard today. You got to draft a quarterback. You gotta get a quarterback next year you gotta go big because you gotta give picks gotta move up because without carson wentz the only advantage to not having carson wentz. This is a weird advantage but it is an advantage. If you get off to a bumpy start to and six and you're fighting scrap your way and make the playoffs. You're going to draft fifteenth. And if you ever get a quarterback you may only have to go up to like the five spot or the four spot. Because next year's draft oregon von bulow defensive end is a monster and there is a corner from lsu. That's the best corner since dion out of college. So we're not necessarily. There's two or three really good college quarterbacks. There is to superstar defensive players. And i'm talkin superstar level defensive players so the first four picks are not gonna be quarterbacks. They're not. We'll get into a saturation point. So if the colts in a weird way get off to a bad start but they get into the playoffs that you always wanna get into the playoffs anybody can win carson wentz his back in an odd way. You're drafting fourteenth or fifteenth and not twenty eighth then you'd have to give up a boatload of picks in players to get up to number five so there's there's always a silver lining a little with injuries. Nick right defended. The lakers moves so nick. Nick loves lebron. The lakers and i said that this is a this is an antique store. You you can't win with the oldest roster in league history and nick wright defended all the old guys lebron's going to lead them. You know the guy who was the league in. Bp last year until the doofus from atlanta solomon haile throttled into his ankle and through the year off so carmel is carmelo old. yes he's old. But here's the thing. Colin aside from the bucks like who's the contender. That's not old. The warriors are old the heat's big off season additions. Were kyle lowry and pj. Tucker who are combined seventy two years old. That's old the net. You were saying the the prime is twenty five to thirty well then the nets have three guys out of their prime so to that i would say. There is a difference between a season veteran slash. Old and a mummy ancient. Okay the lakers. Just aren't an old roster. It is the oldest in league history. And what that means is nagging injuries. Years ago. Steve kerr was very funny. I used to cover steve. Kerr importantly had a funny line. He goes you never wear a second knee. Brace in the nba. If you wear a knee brace you look vulnerable if you wear to who you're telling everybody in the nba. Please attack me score on me. Move over and take. I have two bad knees. So what happens. When you're an older player you play banged knees for a rookie. You miss a game. You may miss a half for a guy in his first five years game or two for an old guy. fourteen games. Two weeks. I are so just you got a lot of old bodies. You're gonna have a lot of extended injuries. That means lebron play more. And i said this yesterday lebron's whole career. He's been so great that lebron's whole career has been this lebron figured out. That's his whole career kyrie's difficult kevin love lebron. We'll figure it out. He'll go to miami will d. wade in him play similar games d. Wade's not a pure point guard. Lebron figuring out goes to the lakers with a bunch of kids. Well we'll trade him we'll bring in. Ad he can't stay healthy. Lebron figure out. That's a lot to ask a guy in his night teen year. We just keep making lebron figure out all these disparate parts. That's hard in year ten twelve when you're the world's best player what happens when you're in your twenty all right. Our three jimmy johnson from fox. Sports is coming up team.

Kevin Warren Says Big Ten Sports Are Done. Indianapolis Colts Preview. NBA Playoff Recap.

"Welcome into one and done radio. Wherever you are. However, you are listening I tuned southbound spotify matic IHEART radio tune in. Stitcher? Pandora Popcorn, pod bean. Goo playlists. Anything else is out there Jamaica one radio, a part of your day. Lots of talk about in this episode. Talked about the big ten how? They came out and said they tend commissioner. President. WHOEVER ONE President Warren. came out and said. Victims done for good as far as the season. Or false sports talk about that. Give my outlook on the Indianapolis Colts season. You know being a colts fan I'm looking forward to actually what going on about what to expect when the team this year and finally. NBA Bubble I'll. How is going and I know I've made some predictions already series and I'm already wrong on some of the Nikon. Discussed where I am wrong. All that on the show. Let's go. So. They commission came out and said. Season's over right. Kevin Warren. Released an open letter to the conference community. Just basically stating. He's been. There's been so much overwhelming in support. But Sometimes Osman support. Postponing Falls, sports. And it will not. Be revisited. On, talk about in regards to this situation. Is the fact that. Is. The reports coming out. Saying. Hey. This vote didn't happen. Was the Penn State a d. key said this vote never happened And everyone wants to know what actually happened in that room in that meeting. was there a vote? was there something that said? Or some buddy was there a group of people that actually can get voted twelve to two even though we are hearing keep reports of like presidents from certain schools say, Oh, we'll make football half football happen. All that Is there is the case? I will say this. I don't know. I this point I don't see big ten football happening. Now granted Justin fields have started petition. Right? He started. Gained senators over two hundred, thousand singers probably over three hundred, thousand. This point. Who knows I don't know exactly what the numbers I just know. He's got some work done as far as the petitions. Will have any effects. As I said before no. I don't see did not have an effect. It was a nice gesture is nice to see the support coming from fans, coaches, family players, all that it was nice to see that. But in the end just turns out like I said it was the commissioner. was going to look at it. The pilot. Wow, that's very cool to see to support. Not Changing my mind. As I've talked about before. There's so much that goes into. That's going to go into this season. Why would we have a season when it could affect? The big ten in general as far as suing K. as I've said, we are a sue happy country. And people want to sit there and say. Oh, we won't do. We won't do this. We'll sign waivers. But as. As I talked about. There are lawyers out there in their jobs to do one thing. Even, with a waiver, even signed a waiver, their job is to find the loophole. Their jobs to find a way figure out what we may have a case here we should have a case we got because we all this rat we can go of this way around this waiver. We can do that. That's what their jobs are. That's what the big ten commissioners worried about. He isn't WanNa, miss out all this money. For the season? He doesn't WanNa miss out on how much money he could potentially be making by not playing football. You think he wants to Miss Alabama no, he does not. He wants to play more than anybody. I I can promise you that he wants to play football. Now, this is the confusing part in the part that's gotTa hurt. The big ten. If the big twelve, the ACC and the SEC one start season to finish a season. Both on time or non time both had fish season star season and everything works out for them. that. Israel look extremely bad. A not only eight a big ten. But the PAC twelve as well. PAC twelve foul sued the big ten you don't really hear a lot of. Stuff going on with the pack twelve. Right they're Kinda just like NIA whatever. We we're stuck. Lava some college teams in they're all only again California teams excuse me. In California obviously is a big. Area Code. But so it's been countries right now. I know some stage are spiking the others more than others excuse me. But In the end. The big ten is one it's rainmaking headline why? Because they started this? The PAC twelve only followed suit because of the big ten. So that's why I hear a lot of PAC twelve step. As far as Had Twelve to play. The problem with this whole situation has continued to be this to things. Why did we do this now a less than a week after remaining schedule. and. What about the other teams? What about them? I do believe. That if those teams were to play and finish a season. Is going to hurt the big ten financially in the PAC twelve financially. Because, thinking about this. season. Stupid Let's just say that right now. And Nick Sabin came out and said it right. It's pretty much going to be the at a J. V. Season I. Mean He's right. Your star players they're seniors in juniors that are gonna go to draft. They're not gonNA play. Why would they? Why would they play? Think of the. Toll, it takes on a player. Football takes a toll put somebody to play. January to March. Or January to April or February April who knows. And then expected him to go to the. NFL. It's just not gonNA happen. Then also tried had those same players that are not going to the NFL play. Another season in August and people will say, well, Ryan it's plenty of time for a player to recover. It's really not. Ok. Think about it. That's an actually look. Let's say a player gets injured in like, November, can. We play August we football in. August. So that's what? Like nine months to recover nine ten months to recover. Depending on when you get injured in November. Where if you play football and get injured in April or March late March April whatever it is. Now you're looking at. Like. Five six months no five or four months. That time period those months in between are vital and people I don't understand it and other than the big ten. Gets that like a spray of seasons not going to happen. And if it does happen, it's it's like your none of your favorite players are GonNa play unless you knew the coming out of high school and then boom and restarting like that's that's the reality of that. So for anyone thinks footballs great. It's dumb big ten. The Spring football stupid is not going to work. It's stupid. To get people hurt because of. Now. Big Tara get I just don't think football's going to happen in general thinking about the money can lose the players you're going to lose. There's a lot of problems with this that nail understand yet you're going to lose players your list funding urine lose recruiting you're without a lot of stuff. Because why? Thing this what if the thing is still happening next year around this same time? What if it is just what if? If I'm a high school player and I see that the SEC to finished season, and there's concern of this virus is still around next year. God forbid. Think it will be but I'm not health expert. But if it is. If I'm a player I'm losing. You'll play for the SEC even if it's vanderbilt but I could have played at a high of state. In. The big ten but the big ten cent, our primary male had seen in. You know we we probably build do it. Would you be stupid because if we saw the SEC outed the big ten, you could easily do. So let's get that straight. But what happens? Now you losing recruits. It's tough. In the end. Kevin warned maze point. Were done with big ten football all-sports were done with him in the fall. In how the spring look. Football. Look stupid. But in sports pilot look normal or some sort of confinement who knows. But football will not play the right way in the fall or spring in spring. Excuse me. So the colts. About the NFL want give my insight on my team, my teams, Indianapolis Colts and. Are Set to my opinion actually have a great season. Been Watching some highlights. Seen like reading the news seeing how we're GONNA look. And we actually look at it. We look like we're GONNA be on paper. We're going to be a great team. Among. On my team across the board. Let's start with the offense obviously a quarterback. And I. Think this is why I think we've been we are A. All in this year type of season. This year. So the colts obviously. So the colts signed. Philip. Rivers. And Phil Burgers right now on a one year deal with the potential for another year deal. So. He's probably is supposed to be a guy from the here to. Philip was had one of his best years under frank, rights? System. Over in San Diego. Los Angeles I duNNo. Over with the chargers. There we go. That works better. I don't know who are what the team was Muslim in San Diego I. Think. So. That was his one of his best years he had was with Frank Right. Now, I think I. Think what happened to was at the reason why? The Coles did sign him when they were looking for another qb to sign was the fact that with Kovin, there'd be less time for another court to come in learn the office learn the learn at all. So I don't know how much more. A. Town. Brady was signed with us. He's already said, oh. It's difficult to learn bruce, Arians offense like it's definitely definitely hard to learn new offense when you've been playing in the same one for you know for a long time is learned to it's hard to learn a new. Skill or new way to do something like to a new way to fold assure doing a a different way of fully shirt for years. You know it's It's an adjustment I'm not saying that you can't shirt. But what I'm saying is that when you do something for so long now you're being as to change something I know Tom Brady has had his inputs on the offense has said we can do this toll areas we can do that but in the end the end of the day. You still have to follow. The program, the playbook. To a certain degree. Yes you have. Yes. You have to great weapons, but you still have to follow the program in the plan in place. So Philip Rivers I, think that's why they were very quick. Assign him was because, hey, we don't know what's going to happen but if we need someone to come on in not getting any experience as far as preseason nosy offense can come into being employment and he's good to go. Then we need to sign that guy and Phillips that guy to Jacoby. He's come out and so that he thinks he's starting correctly he probably is but right now he's. Not a starting quarterback with us can. He doesn't have a winning record with US granted a few years back when Angela was hurt. We trained for came and was terrible. But at the not all on him. So. Is a guy that could. Be a quarterback else where he is in the final year of his contract. So and I don't look for the colts to bring him back which is why Probably drafted Jacob Easson. Eastern, is fighting to third ranked third quarterback overall or maybe even a practice guy who knows what the plan is you know I do believe that they try to practice squad route. That somebody out there will sign him before he even hits free agency like bill claim him off of waivers. So the colts. How will the corvette situation look I think it's GonNa look like Phil. Jacoby. Jacob S in Chad Kelly's been around for a few years now but I don't think he's the guy's GonNa come in and just continue to back a wall. He's have problems off the field into just hasn't shown anything I think the Jacobson has a lot more to prove. Over time and Chad Kelly does at this point. Running backs I, love a running back situation I. Love the fact that we have Marlin Mac and John Taylor when we drafted John and Taylor's very excited. One he's got one of the best art can make the case that the colts to the best offer ally in the NFL. And when you're Rimac in you have that. Awesome. Year deal. So it looks like at this year. Like Chris Ballard I think he understands running backs are just like al.. Injury history narrow bill stay healthy for a full season. So I do think that does play a factor I think they want more physical back I can take hits and. Jonathan, Taylor he's even said he hasn't missed time if you look at his. Track record as far as practicing game he hasn't missed a time. You doesn't he doesn't. The colts. Guys top IT'S GONNA be there. Marlin Mac he's going he plays but when he doesn't play just. He just missed you know. Offensively, two receivers were drafted Michael Pittman love the pay to go along T. Y. Hilton Wilson, Perez Campbell and Pascal as well. So we got. Guba four sears at half attention, P. Really good this year along Philip rivers and again, our offense a line one of the top in the NFL. Defensively our front I still love our Defensive Front Anna linebackers as well. Darius Leonard the big key on defense for us. I will say Look Secondary. We're going to be pretty good. We've sight Xavier rose to a one year deal. We do have defensive line with deforest Buckner Trae for him also signed Sheldon Day along with Justin. Houston who's been there. He's GonNa still be there for us. So we're grabbing great defensive front. Secondary Wise, we did not. We did not pick up molly hookers last year, our fifth year option Soho probably a free agent Adam this year. So probably the look elsewhere secondary to fill that spot in the draft, and if you do know one thing about Chris Ballard is that he builds through the draft. He'll add pieces for a one year deal he's done but when it comes to the core of the team, he's building through the draft. In I do as far as a team, our record I think were playoffs. I think we had a team in Russia to make a playoff run super bowl I don't know. But again, the ways team is built a one year deal they have signed. It's like we're going in this year to make happen with draft the guys we've had a few years to rebuild start and go. This is the way to do it with this with this team. That's distracted we had. Again I'M NOT BE SURPRISED TO MAKE A playoff run through the playoffs. Do that the culture built for that right now with who we have what we drafted I think we're ready for that. So anyway I gave my predictions on the NBA Bubble Games with those games I do. Season series of right now I'm surprised with those two two to three series so far start off one. Mavericks. After game one, we'll after game one game when they had a big lead Dow's at hugely against the clippers then imposing suggestion happened. which ended fully agree with, but it happens. And then the lead to started slip away Luca tried to do a lot as he was doing good amount. But at the end I think he just came down to clippers flex their muscle game just took over but. Game Two different story. Maverick's came out. beat the clippers and Lucas come out and said, we can play with them. and. They shown it. Lucas had twenty eight points eight of seventeen from the field eight of twelve from the free throw line. Leonard at Thirty Five Points Ten, twenty, one from the field. Now, if you look at the starters for the four, the Mavericks. Obviously, Porzingis a big time player who wasn't there for the end of game one. Finish a twenty, three points they won one, twenty, seven to one fourteen. This is the theme of the Mavericks Defensively they're not. GonNa Stop You. There are not defensive team to stop you offensively, they had the firepower. By I've talked about this with people I, know. Saying. Watch out. For. The watch out for Luca. Watch out for and you know honestly to this what's funny. Is that he was Luca without trouble Kay he had five fouls throughout the game. And he only played twenty eight minutes imagine if he played more than twenty minutes. Different team like score probably would have been a lot more. But unfortunately yet, and he had to play where he had played. So. Imagine that if he would have played more minutes. I tell you. What I did I know I said this I said, watch out for the mavericks, their teen. That's really like that is going to challenge clippers. They've done that so far I think these first two games. They had the clippers in Blewett. second game. came out and just show a I gave wasn't in flu like we're here for you. We're going to take you on. Lucas is man he had a movie day where he just took on Kawhi Leonard off means made the bucket like. Like Lucas, the real deal man annoy understand that he's the real deal. Next. The magic verses, the Bucks Listen Game One was rough. And I picked the majesty it's wet. Game One may came out and said, now we're GONNA be fine. We're GONNA, take him on game one I mean boost vague was. Insane fifteen and twenty, four, thirty points I mean working what can you do that? Janas it's yours played back. He was twelve, twenty, five or thirty one points like that's a typical. Night what he wanted to do, he took twenty five shots. He made three from three point line seventeen rebounds. Seven assists personal fouls again if five. But there's much you can do. The is like that's his team. I do condemn book I still had the bucks winning the series. It was nice though to come out and say listen we can play with them. Again. This is what's Nice about different about this bubble bubble system that there's no home team there's no waiting visages basketball. Basketball is like we find out who the teams are to be. The Lakers right now I think should be concerned. Here's why. They have looked terrible throughout the course of this bubble. They have not looked great. All they had a good first game against the clippers because clippers had all their star players. And they have that looks great. Threatens bubble now could you say resting? Who knows? But. The trailblazers, our team night said watch out for the. Damian. Lillard is a different animal in the playoffs. I think the key for them and I just gotTa say this because I'm not a fan of. I know what makes Anthony Davis great is versatility. But if you're Anthony Davis just go down low, just fight inside just play inside more stop with a three point shooting. You over five from three point land? Okay If you love taking those five shots, maybe tournament of fuel attempts from like inside the download the post driving in the lane. Now this game damage, you probably get some points an ones. It's probably different outcome stopped three point shooting. I understand that's what makes great. What is versatility? Is What makes Anthony Davis a great player I get that. But what more can he do? From outside. It's like just lend fighting. Cya Can you have signed guys have play outside? Right? You signed any GREENIE got cusack. You've got waiters. You've got these guys. Who are supposed to be rimmer players. Let them do their thing from the perimeter you play down low. That's all I'm saying. The three games I WANNA talk about. Again. I predicted the the raptors taking on the nets. So far go no problem jazz did come back in game two, which I'm not surprised I. Don't see the nuggets sweeping the jazz but do have a nugget still win the series Celtics are handling the sisters no problems while one twenty, one on one. Again deserted series I figured figure was going to happen and then obviously the games coming up. Houston lease rock, Lou. Houston leads a thunder one nothing in the series and I got the again I still had the heat being the Pacers series as well. Dow Dividends Episode of One done radio.

If you're listening to this tuesday at nine niner practice the pads are popping. Talk to a buddy on the chiefs there like patent up tomorrow. I think all these teams in the league despite it feels like they've practiced for a week. Have not put on pads until tuesday wednesday. So we're football is actually happening and a lot going on the colts. We're going deep in that situation up. Top whence nick foles kind of throwing it out there. Come get me. I don't know if that's going to happen. Some thoughts on the rookie. Quarterbacks we know trevor lawrence we know zach. Wilson jets is a starting quarterback trae. Lance has been the star. The first week justin feels louis riddick. Had a tweet that i'll get into I have some takes on rookie quarterbacks and why you should not hesitate to just plan from the job just a couple of other little things that i've seen big picture stuff from camps and then i'm just gonna fly around the league from justin herbert to cd lamb to the bills. Saying they're going to austin texas home of the new sec. Texas longhorns. i don't know if you saw. But clemson and florida state at least based on twitter asked to come into the sec. Who wouldn't want to the sec. Could they take a the atlanta falcons feel like they'd be a good sec team. I don't even know if they win it. I don't know if they'd win it but we will dive deep in the camps. Appreciate everyone that. Subscribe to my podcast. I know if you listen through. Collins pod subscribe through my pot if you left a review on the three podcast from the separate feet. I appreciate you doing that if you have if you haven't you liked the show. Please do that. Also middlekauff mail mailbag. It's what we do at the end of the show. Answer your questions. It's like the modern day phone calls but do instagram at john. Middlekauff is my instagram direct messages wide. Open fire in there. Get your question answered on the show. And you know how we will chris. Ballard frank reich run the colts they officially disaster on their hand. As i'm sure many of you saw carson wentz. We'll get surgery on. His foot. Feels like its tenth injury of his. Nfl career and is out. You gotta love the time line five weeks or could be twelve weeks. There's a big difference between five weeks. Which would be you know. Basically potentially want week two or twelve weeks which is week seven or eight. that's a huge timetable. Like come on. Why why we even given out timetables say he's out indefinitely and we will update you on his progress like the five weeks. That's a joke that's happening and listen. I've hammered home for years on this. Show that unlike every other big business when you acquire anything a restaurant an accounting firm facing when they acquired instagram. You have a black and white idea this how much revenue they take in. This is what their expenses are. This is what the projected revenue is going to be. These are the last five years of the books like you have empirical data. You have hard evidence right now. The project in business just like you do with football players. Once upon a time blockbuster by net flicks hurt. Listen to a podcast. One time with the guy netflix. He's like i went in we offer. We said we throat the number forty billion dollars which was a lot of money at the time and they laughed out of the room bad decision but they can see netflix books like they saw what was going on. Now you had to see the future a little bit. The hard part about pro sports specifically football is your fifty one hundred one hundred and fifty million dollar. Investments are not in buildings are not in companies there in one individual. And i'll never forget being a part of these meetings. When i worked in the nfl going over injury history. And you know a guy can have three concussions guy could have to. Acl's and you know. I wouldn't touch him and then go on for like three or four years and have no issue a guy. That's never had an issue a guy that's never had a concussion. All of a sudden you sign him. He has to concussions and season. Mrs basically what say twelve games. You have no clue you take constant educated guesses because you are investing in human beings now carson wentz when the colts acquired them had major red flags right. He had been injured in college. He had been injured in the pros. That alone was zone. Red flag last year. His play was a red flag. He was god awful and then there were questions about him within the locker room. Part of the reason a guy who has had. Mvp type season in the league at quarterback and you went number. Two overall was basically had for third and second round pick. We saw matt stafford gopher to ones into three right. We saw trae lance go for pick twelve and two other ones quarterbacks or typically really expensive yet carson wentz was not and you had to take back all of his money. I was driving around today. I heard pat mcafee say. Pay a fifty five million dollars. I look at his contract today. They're dead cap on the colts book. Obviously you wouldn't cut them but forty seven million dollars paying him twenty million dollars actual cash this year next year. Twenty seven million dollars cash twenty million dead cap. So they're stuck with them for a couple of years. A big reason beagles wanted to get rid of them. They didn't want to pay him any more cash. You take this right. And the colts made an educated. You know guests slash risk. They knew what they were taking in. There was a lot of evidence. But if i wanted to defend chris ballard go the last two seasons two years ago carson wentz played all sixteen games and then he got that concussion in the playoff game against seattle in philly and last year while he got benched late in the season he was healthy. He was playing the all season. He got bench because of his poor play. You just never know. It is just honestly the thing that i missed. The least from standing on the sideline in a team issue gear being part of the group. Could you do miss things right. You miss part of being in the trenches with a lot of people. The players the coaches the scouts. A city it's a cool experience. I think the by far the worst part. I don't know how these gm's and coaches become so numb to this or the injuries you could just be a practice. If you're chris. Ballard and frank. I don't even know frank was at that practice because he was on the coronal in all of a sudden. You look in your quarterback. He didn't get hit. No one touch them. He just starts limping off. Then you find out a couple of hours later. His foots all messed up and then a couple of days later he's going to be out five to twelve weeks. It sucks like you can say they knew this was coming. Yeah but i'd say the last couple of years he's bet healthy. His problem had been poor plight. You're just hoping to fix his poor play and then the question is moving forward. What the hell do you do with someone on the chiefs. Who in clearly there. The favorite to win the division. Or excuse me the conference right. Most people are going to pick them to win the afc and rightfully so one at last two years more likely though when it again he's like feel bad that roster is loaded because they are chris. Ballard is really really good at his job. But i talked to colin on his podcast. And it was like you know when you don't have a quarterback. You're always chasing the quarterback. No matter how good you roster is so what do you do because you don't really realize until carson goes down. It's not like they had a backup plan. Nick foles and i don't think you can do that. Because the ghost of nick foles like the colts can't cut nick or carson wentz for two years he's going to be on the roster this year next year. Nick foles does make the most football sense on the field. Knows frank knows the offense. They've worked together before they've had success. Nick foles talked today with the bears. Reiterated that was basically like come. Get me guys. i'm with. The third stringer now. And i'm dicing up all these undrafted free agents but you can't because carson wentz. His career has been defined by the ghost of nichols. And let's face it. I don't know they may be professionally. Respect each other there is a. There's an elephant in the room of tension with those two guys and mainly carson toward nick. Because nick is the hero of philadelphia. Nick is the superbowl mvp. Nick was the guy who became a legend in that game. When carson was the street close you don't shake that and now carson was given this opportunity in theory to resurrect his career with the stack team. And if you're chris ballard carson wentz if he was out for the season i wouldn't worry about it i'd go get nick foles but carson is gonna come back and if you bring nick foles in as multiple people that i texted with today in the league. He'd be over mentally he'd be shot. You just can't do that to them. So that is not an option. Jimmy garoppolo makes way too much money. You can't have multiple guys making twenty plus million dollars. They don't even have the cap space. Marcus mariota doesn't make that much money you would. You would have to be intrigued there right. The problem is. I don't know about the scheme. Turn over in. Terms of the terminology could get up to speed. I had a person. Just say i would just try to get through the first four or five games with eastern and hopefully your defense and your offense is productive enough that you're able to be like three and to you know maybe four and two 'til carson back five hundred three and three but that's best case scenario it really is and i feel bad for chris ballard. Now you could argue. This was this is part of carson. Wentz the package. But there's just nothing you can do in the business of football to ever know when a guy just starts limping by himself right. You're like what just happened. All of a sudden a ligament rips abon breaks an elbow goes ah shoulder muscle shot can you just. You're in the human business. It's the greatest unknown. It's why pro sports have always been and will continue to be the greatest reality show in the history of life and there's a lot of money in line clearly with a guy like carson wentz. The colts have invested now a lot of money into him but you just just potentially derails their season. Let's talk rookie quarterbacks. And the growing buzz about potentially two more rookie starters. We know trevor lawrence will be the starter for the jacksonville jaguars. Of course he was gonna start for whoever. He was drafted by two years ago. These the best prospect prospect since andrew. Lock the jets trade. Sam darnold drafts wilson. He's the storer. Then you have two wildcards with cam. Newton's clearly going to be starter. I think for new england all report. I album rewrote. He's been way better mack. Jones is now starting week one. But i've got two other guys to me. That are clearly now in the mix justin fields and trae lance. Now i can speak for trae lance. I'm sure if you've been following the internet. He's been killing in a practice. I'll be there the next couple of days. Hopefully he keeps killing it just fields. Who louis riddick. Tweeted that from what he had heard. He is blowing people away. I haven't talked with anyone. Within the bear since camp started talking to them in otas they were really really impressed. I'm not talking about his physical attributes which are eye opening. I'm talking about the mental preparation. The understanding of the offense all that that entails. And let's face it. I have a simple philosophy. And i've been banging the table on this for years. If you draft a guy. High in the draft ak the top fifteen the first round but definitely in the top ten and i would include justin fields in that i would start immediately. What the hell are you waiting for now. I come from the philosophy just to stay school guy from cal poly for you. Nfl fans crisco kong. Ramsey's barden no big deal. Third round picks didn't quite live up to the expectations. Really a college players. We learn by doing and i can speak for myself academia. Let me down. Just based on the fact that i'm not great at just reading a book memorizing it and then repeating it to a test. That's not how i operate. That's not how i learn. Throw me into the trenches of society of life. Whatever i'm doing. That's how i learned when i played high school football in the meeting room. I just get bored. I get distracted. Scored football is rep. It out. i learned through live reps whether that's in the business community whether that was in sports. That's how i do my best work and listen. I know everyone's a little bit differently. But i think we have a long list now of evidence that the game clearly in like when i was a kid the eighties nineties. It was different world. You had to prepare yourself physically for a war. You could get killed reading. A kay listening to the steve. Young book joe montana used to get us back literally broken on the field. Quarterbacks were in the line of fire it was violent and you could get injured now. They can't be touched literally in practice and also kind of in the games and the game the translation of what they were doing in college now. So prevalent in the pros. We've seen the list of guys. Lamar jackson got to play now. He didn't start from day one. They should have but he played that rookie season by your too. He was winning the mvp. Josh allen who had a lot to learn through m- in week one see them one by your to leading the team to the playoffs by your threes and mvp canada. You bet well patrick mahomes. That's not outlier situation. If you have alex smith in your team and you're gonna win the division. Then yeah you have some time on your hands. Most teams don't andy dalton not alex smith jimmy garoppolo. Not alex smith throw the guy into the fire. Let him learn. He is protected literally by the league. The defenders can't really hit the defenders can't really hit your wide receiver. So guys are more open. Do still need to throw guys open in the nfl. Of course you do but it's not quite nineteen ninety-two steve. Atwater is not going to give you concussion over the middle. He's not allowed to steve atwater. Obviously not in the. But you know what i'm saying. The kam chancellor days are over they do not exist. Here's the other thing. The greatest attribute a rookie quarterback has the best one is his contract. Obviously if he's good he's cheap right. His contract make five six seven million dollars instead of forty so it it skews your cap to to be advantageous to sign other players. When you can't think about her how much better off. The chargers are that he got thrown into the deep end last year. I'm going to pick them to make the playoffs. I think but having that contract on your side obviously wants season starts his rookie year. Your team is set. You've already spent the money. But what about your to when you have the full confidence go. We got a guy. We got a big time talent and we have the ability to make a run. Let's load up. It's easy to say that but if you don't truly believe. Are we really going to be wasting money when you get a guy. When you got josh allen lamar jackson when you get the chargers would justin herber you. Put all your gypsum. No table and you are literally thinking walking around the building. We got a chance to beat anybody. we do. So every single game that. Andy dalton or jimmy garoppolo place to me is a waste it really is and i just think look at recent evidence. All the guys that played early had success so much earlier because of their ability to play because of their ability to learn on the field. You can only learn. These practices are a joke. No one is getting touched kind of honestly just known some people in the nfl laughing stock in the league like what these practices are what they used to be. I'm not trying to be old man. River and enact like things don't naturally need to progress but it's hard to get better or football when you don't allow tackling or hitting right. The huge reason tackling is so poor early in the season because you don't tackle it'll and then the preseason games no one plays the my philosophy would one hundred percent be if i have a rookie quarterback one clearly. If he's swimming over his head doesn't know what's going on. I'm not saying you just throw out a guy. Teammates like what is going on. But what are they saying. Baseball tie goes the runner. If you'd has tied justin feels andy dalton trae lance jimmy garoppolo. I'm sorry andy i'm sorry. Jimmy take the bench. Grab some pine meat. Put on a hat and grab a clipboard. Coach them up because you are no longer the starter. If the guy's better which do you know what my guts going gonna say about trae. Lanson justin fields was the preseason game. Start it's your mom. My mom will be like. What are we doing here. Guys you see that throw you see that ability to run. What are we wasting your time. And every game that you go by is a waste of time. Start the rookie quarterback why you drafted him. The niners traded pick twelve two first rounders. The bears traded from pick twenty two pick twelve and a first round pick even vested all this. Let the guy sinker slim and you might hit some. You know some road bumps have a little adversity. You know what that does it helps you out. What do smart people say you don't ever fail. You just learn so if you throw a bad pick week one. guess what. Maybe you don't do that week. Three maybe. don't do that week. Five you definitely your to your so much better equipped to handle. everything's coming. Start your star rookie quarterback fox. Sports radio has the best sports talk lineup.

You know one thing that i don't know gets hammered home enough in august. It's really you know the best part of the nfl season are the nfl games. There's nothing like being a little hung over on a sunday morning. Getting out of bed orders a breakfast burrito at least for us on the west coast for you guys on the east coast. You had a little more time. How you go get like play teen in the morning. Sunday for those of us in the west coast. You had a long night out on saturday. You roll out of bed and football's on you grab yourself some food and you don't do anything from basically ten. Am til al and chris sign off at night. It's it's a great day. I love sundays in the fall. But the best part about training camp like the problem once the game. Start if you're a fan of a team if you're a coach on a team you're a player on team. What happens if you're team sucks. We've you start. Losing a lot of games for his as football is winning and avenue. Never play in the nfl. My stint i got to be a part of the playoff team to one division. And my third year i was part of a team. That fired a coach. I'll tell you this. Being a part of a playoff team is infinitely better be part of a team. That is not any good right. And that's players coaches fans. Were kind of all in this together. I would say the only thing sometimes people ask. Is there anything you miss. I'm like well the one thing. You truly missed that. I don't really have now. Is the true commod. Ary can't camaraderie of the group right when you're a scout or coach. You're so close knit with that group and the players and really you represent the city so you know what i was part of the eagles. I mean it's a big deal you know obviously with everyone in the building but what you mean to the city. I'm born and raised niner. Guy like the niners mean a lot. I mean they are a freaky big deal to a lot of people. Obviously kyle john you know to to the players it means a lot but then just to the millions upon millions of people that live in northern california right and say the same thing for seattle for the giants for the cowboys for the packers. The steelers for the vikings for the bears. It's a big deal. And i don't really have that i get to be a business partner with colin coward. It's cool. I get to split some takes into a mike but it's not like you know you walk into the building every day and just feel like there's a lot of people just invested into this. It's a powerful thing and when you're winning it's awesome. There is nothing like sunday after a win monday morning. Going in you know off a team like if you just want a big game it's awesome but first great is that is. There's nothing worse college. Football too mean. It was like this. When i was a fresno state going into the office after a loss the only corporate office i've ever been beside football was win radio and it was never that up and down like it was tangible in football on monday. Whether you wanna lost the best part about training camp is every team is ohno. No one has lost a game and every franchise. Whether you're the jets were the jags or the chiefs or the bucks. You have optimistic and beliefs that your team is going to be good right. Obviously the playoff teams are pretty cocky and arrogant in a good way thinking like we're going to be really good. We're gonna win thirteen fourteen games and we're going to be a mother in the playoffs and if you're the jets are jags you go. I promise you this wink and be drafted the top five. We might not be a playoff team but our goals to get around five hundred and we're going to be good and we're going to show some optimism with a young quarterback so when a year everyone's going to be. This is a potential playoff team. And that's how everyone around the league is thinking at some different level and that part is cool now obviously the worst part of training camp by four or the injuries anytime you have a serious injury like that carson wentz injury for the colts sucks anytime guys card off practice. Once these preseason games happen anytime a guy gets seriously injured. Preseason game is the worst but other than that precedes is pretty fun. You're kind of feeling out your team seeing the growth of all the guys. It's a cool time. The other thing and i follow a lot of teams. I'm sure most people do on social media and when you fall a lot of teams on twitter like if i get up early in the morning six seven a lot of teams on the other side of the country are either just practice or going to practice and a lot of their coaches talk before practice. So i just end up running matt rules talking follow the panthers matla floors talking mike. Mccarthy's talking mike zimmer. talking. I'm a sucker for a coach press conference and this much is clear in the nba. I don't know if you saw today. Kawai leonard who has a torn acl. And it's probably going to miss the entire season declined. Thirty seven million dollars from the clippers. He plans on signing a two hundred million dollar deal a couple years ago. Kevin durant tours achilles declined the warriors two and fifty million dollar offer the nba coaches. Never ever say a word about a about a good player let alone store in baseball. The managers beside maybe like a tony larussa or tito francona. Who actually. I think just left the team. Because he's sick at well tito tito fan. Gabe kaplan makes eight hundred grand. There's a guy on the giants who makes less than gabe kappler. The days of bruce. Bocce and thomas sorta swing and a big stick like bill. Ourselves are over in sports baseball. They baseball managers. What in the nba players are in charge in baseball. The general managers run the sport in football. When you watch these coaches conference coaches are have all the juice and they can say whatever they want about a good middle of the road bad player what they say matters and everyone in that building knows that guy has all the juice because once the season starts and really started right now guys know you better be locked in because the head man is mad at me. I got issues if the head coach is down on me. My job is on the line and that is just not the case in the other two sports and it hasn't been in the nba. For a long time but baseball. I have seen a dramatic shift in anyone falls sport closely general managers complete control. There's reason for making three four five million dollars in coaches making seven hundred and fifty grand. Aaron boone is the manager of the new york yankees makes some million dollars. A million bruce bochy who just retired a couple of years ago. It was making like six a million dollars as like what belichick makes a month. Think about that. If bill makes twelve million dollars a month joe judge last year signed for seven and a half million dollars a year so unless money does give you some juice when you pay these coaches a lot of money and listen. Football's clearly a little different. These other sports but the coach just in complete control. Let's face it. The nfl by a mile is the healthiest of all sports. I think the baseball season has been fantastic. Obviously the giants are playing well but just over. I was watching the raise red sox. What an incredible series. It's i think the tampa bay race. Quick tangent tweeted this out on friday house. Having a of pops they they were on tv and they were just going toe-to-toe with the red sox and it hit me. I was like there can't be a better pound for pound organization in all of sports including the nfl in the race because in the nfl as we saw every team that three hundred million dollars last year in baseball razor spending seventy five million dollars the red sox and the yankees have hundreds of millions of dollars to spend on players. The other thing is the race turnover players one in turnover. The gm's their gm's get jobs doesn't matter they just keep on kicking ass. I have nothing but respect for the tampa bay rays tampa bay right now kind of on top of the world the raise kicking the red sox yankees asked the rays of own the yankees now for a while tampa bay the football team super bowl champs the lightning. Nhl champs saw florida state. They want in tallahassee by tampa bay. I don't know why disconnected those two. But let's why don't i tamp. The the the florida state seminoles one in on the acc so good times for for the tampa bay region again have no clue of florida. State is remotely close. I've only been to fort lauderdale and miami actually. What a jacksonville to on a scouting trip. The jacksonville stadium sucks kay. Let's fire around the league. Just some things that are going on things that i've seen on the social media streams things that i've seen in my text messages. Try to keep keep my ear. The streets first and foremost justin herbert. He's at several passes. Go viral anyone. That watched them play last year. I think we all agree. His talent is immense talk to coward about this. I think when you go back if you look at oregon two things works against them one. Marcus mariota mariota. Similar personality wasn't the loudest guy in the room. Was actually i think people in the league viewed him closer to introverted than like some extroverted leader. I think herbert had some of those characteristics and then mariota never lived up to the height. The differences just in herbert mariota didn't have much in common. Besides they're both tall. Herbert has a way better arm. He's just as fast. He's physically much thicker way better prospect. Here's the other thing. Mariota played with much better players when he played it oregon. Justin herbert did not play with good skill guys. I don't think they had a drafted wide. Receiver organs. Always had good tight ends. I can't name one freaking tied in. Here's the other thing. Since i was a kid. Oregon had big time running backs. Remember the wiz nater ontario smith sacramento grant high school up until chip kelly. They were always pumped jonathan stewart pumping out ballers in the backfield. Kenyan barner la- michael james. Now were they great. Nfl players hit or miss but they were legit players in college. Herbert didn't have a good running back. He didn't questionable tight ends. And no dynamic wide receivers so he really got nitpicked. And then to a who clearly justin. Herbert has more gifted than to. I got to play with wattle. Would devante would judy and with with rigs and with good tight ends would nashi harris. So it's not really comparable looking back if you could do the draft over. I think there's legitimate or at least there will be an as this season. Plays out the justin. Herbert should have even first overall. Now it would have been crazy. Because joe borough was so damn good in college. Oh is going to be good in the pros. But i think justin herbert has a ceiling. That's higher than than joe borough cd lamb. He was awesome last year. I think there's a chance when this season ends. We go back maybe two or three years and how he not a top five pick. I think when the dust settles he is going to the best wide receiver in his class and that sand something that class was legit. Justin jefferson rookie star. Going to be a really good player brandon. I really good player jerry. Judy really good player. Higgins really good. I mean a ton of wide receivers was known as one of the best wide receiver drafts of all time when the draft happened let alone. We saw the guy's rookie. They're all good. I think when the dust settles and in several years we look back and cd lamb. I get it. He's destroying cowboys. Db's that aren't very good. But i think he would destroy any d- he has. He reminds me when. I see clips of deandre hopkins as he should with everyone. He is an incredible jump ball player. His contested catch. Ability is probably second to none right now. In the league with with hopkins. Devante smith the eagle first round. Pick heisman trophy winner. Not ideal spraying disney. Now i mean there's nothing you can do some random. It's kinda crazy. He's been pretty consistently healthy at alabama and then he gets to the eagles who gets hurt. Nothing you can do. It doesn't seem to be too bad but more likely. He's going to miss a huge chunk of training camp if not all training camp because if it's potentially two to three weeks three weeks you're already in late august. I think you're kind of easing them in to get ready for week one. So that's that's a pretty big blow. I saw vic fangio. Head coach of the denver broncos said his quarterback race for. Who's going to be. The starting quarterback is even. Stephen drew lock and teddy bridgewater. What i would do like we've seen teddy bridgewater. You're not winning anything with teddy bridgewater. If it's even steven just go a drew lock. Hopefully his higher ceiling his ability to make more plays downfield. Just gives you a better chance to win because i just i'm sorry teddy. Bridgewater is a backup a good backup. Guy wanna pay five six seven million dollars to back by star quarterback up but he's not a sorting quarterback now drew lock either but at least there's more unknown withdrew lock more physical talent in that body. Let's face it. The broncos have some talent. I mean. Judy fant they sudden back. They've good running backs. Their offensive line's pretty good. Get von miller back. I saw bradley. Chubs his back to practice. I mean they might have a good pass rush if you just get. Some explosive quarterback play who knows hollywood brown. I saw harbaugh say that his hamstring injury is much worse than i anticipated which is a problem for speed guy now on the bright side sammy watkins from what i've read and maybe heard has been excellent for their team problem with sammy as we know you can't really depend on. Because he gets hurt. I think they had high hopes for hollywood brown. They bring in t martin they bring in my guy. Keith williams who. I is the best wide receiver coach. I've ever been around there. Wide receiver is going to be coached up but they have bateman fr Key they drafted from minnesota. I saw marcus. Peters sandy looks pretty good in practice so that should be exciting thing. Get healthy passing game. Obviously mark andrus Probably a top-five tight end in the league so it should be in theory a much more explosive passing game. This one made me laugh. Because i went through it when the raiders were moving. And clearly whenever you're having problems with your with your stadium situation and you're battling for money you bad for real estate. You're dealing with politicians and face. It be dealing politicians as pain in the ass regardless of what side you fall on. That's not even debatable. But the bills who are owned by a family that are worth a lot of money. I don't blame an owner. If i own a team and it was worth one hundred billion dollars. I had unlimited money. What am i still. Try to get the city to chip in a little bit. Wait you're saying. I don't have to put an extra five hundred million or an extra billion. I can get the city to do that. Of course you know. Would you rather spend a million dollars on a home or put down two hundred grand and have the bank. Give you eight hundred grand. We do that all the time now. What if someone instead of you having to service the debt someone else would split the debt with you. You know. I'll just i'll just service the debt or actually the city will service the debt. But you get to own the house. Of course you would just business. The media gets so up in arms. How could you do this. Because that's how you do every business. Yes for the moon and you just see what you can get. Now this is what i read. Flack because the raiders used to do this with san antonio. There is not going to be another team in texas. There is the dallas cowboys which listen. They don't win a lot. But they're the biggest brand in the league and the houston texas houston a top-five city in america. They already have two teams in the state they are not. Jerry is never allowing another team now. Jerry business hor. He helps out the league. Because he's a great partner he will let them float that out and not fight back. There is no team no. Nfl team is ever moving to austin. I promise you that the cowboys and the taxes they would never allow that it is never ever happening. So are the bills threatening. Yeah because they're trying to give up now could they move. Maybe there are other destinations. I promise you they are not ever moving to austin texas. Neither is any other team after all that planning it's happening.

Middlekauff mailbag instagram at john. Middlekauff you fired those. Dm's like some of you guys did right here you get your question answered very easy very straightforward love the pot which potential wildcard teams. Do you think have the highest ruin someone season chance. I'm a charger fan. And i know it's early. But i feel like at the team can build chemistry and staley can even just be semi live up to the expectations. We can ruin someone season. I know a super bowl. Run is unlikely. But i'd like to show that we're legit. Yeah i think i think. The chargers are definitely a team that can make the playoffs. I think the minnesota vikings if their defense could just get back to somewhat of what they have been in the past can compete to make the playoffs. I would say those are two teams. That did not make the playoffs last year. Dick could become wildcard teams. And then if you look at the teams that you would need someone to fall out right so if you look at the afc you know. The browns definitely one of the most talented teams on paper. But let's this can baker mayfield just become a legitimate star are the steelers like is big benjy shot. That's something to keep an eye on. I am pretty confident in the ravens. The chiefs in the bills the dolphins or they just going to maintain and in the nfc. You know i mean the packers are not gonna go away. Maybe the saints. Do maybe the make the playoffs. You're the bears made the playoffs as well. I mean honestly maybe both. Those teams aren't in the playoffs. Now justin herber. Excuse me justin field as good. Maybe there's good. I also think there's going to be this curveball. This extra game. Like and seven make the playoffs. Eleven games made the playoffs last year. In the afc. You had to win. Eleven games to make the playoffs. The miami dolphins went ten and six and missed the raiders who were right in the wildcard mix heading into december missed the playoffs by three games in the nfc. Eight nate got in with the bears. So i i would imagine my guess is the afc is better than the nfc i think in the nfc ten and seven might get you the seven spot in the afc. Probably gotta go eleven six. I also wonder like seven and nine always felt pretty bad. There's eight nine feel bad. This nine and eight feel good. Ten seven is going to feel pretty good seven and ten is gonna feel really shitty. If you go seven and ten and your coach you might get fired. Like seven and ten is one of those those numbers that had just. I don't know man. I'm a big fan of the show and view an awesome football mind. Why didn't it work out for you as a scout and did you pursue the career beyond a scout to be to begin with also if you're interested in hiring anyone to help their show even invest in other sports minds. I would love to talk. I'm a lifelong cowboys fan. My grandpa seen all five super bowls. My dad went to three in the ninety s. Is there anything. I can look as a positive for being a cowboys. Fan in the future of the franchise. Okay starting with the cowboys. Actually guys are going to be decent this year. Because your defense can't be as bad as it was last year even though dan quinn as defensive coordinator like is this isn't in atlanta or awful. So is he some great defensive mind. I don't know there's just no way. He could be as bad as mike nolan. And i think offensively as long as dax i mean again i i've been saying over and over. Dax injury makes it a little nervous. But if he's healthy their offense should be dominant especially their pass. Offense should be unstoppable. And i eat out just i got fired. Young in the nfl. I didn't know anybody at on other teams really. And i wasn't going to move around and i'm also open minded. I wasn't dead. Set like i had to be my the rest of my life in the nfl. I got an opportunity in the radio business. I never looked back. And you know it's just i. I'm not a religious person though. I do believe in things happen for a reason and i just think everything got to happen for a reason i would never have been able to get a radio show or have the success. I've had independently with these podcasts. I mean i probably would add some on this one with with colin but my other one we started from scratch and a big reason. They gave me credibility to get a radio show on top five market. Was i worked in the nfl. So you know it was like almost meant for it to happen this way. I mean that was a pretty good scout. I'm better at this. And this is way more lucrative for me and it's more fun for me. I like being in control. I enjoy the business aspect of things. I get to do now. That i never would have got to do in the nfl because you just watch players all day long. Which i mean is fun but for me. It just wasn't for me. I don't know some of my buddies that are best in the league. And they're great at it and they can do that better than i. Just i would lose focus. I was able to focus. Better back. Then i would not be able to do it at my age right now and it's not even that old i just i just had so many other interests. I like playing too much golf too. I didn't play anyone. I worked in the nfl. I just i play a lot. Now is floor. Soft as i've watched matt lead this team. There's no question. He can unite a team. But you know teams adapt to the personality of their coach. The packers see more finesse than hard and gritty. The team gets punched in the mouth in can't seem to come back angry and pissed. Is that the coaches personality. That should be considered of the mouth. I mean they've won twenty six games as someone who questioned matlock floors higher early on. I might be wrong. They won twenty six games. He's won a playoff game each of the last two years. Now the tampa's more physical. They were just better. He doesn't pick the players like their defense is just plot offensively. They were dominant. And that's his baby now as a head. Coach is more than just colin place. He hires the coaches so he didn't choose. Mike patton though that was forced on him. For murphy roy fired him and he gets joe berry so now we're gonna see like that was his hand picked events coordinator joe berry because he had juice. You know why had use. Because he'd want a lot of games like are they. Soft a little bit reggie white ain't walk through that door leroy butler ain't nowhere to be found gentler. Gyro alexander's not soft. Kenneth clark's not soft. I is he bill parcells. Now but a sean mcvay. Or kyle shanahan now was cow. Shanahan's defensive line tough because he some tough coach or because they had buckner bosa and armstead like does was the rams defense awesome because mcveigh's defensive guy no fucking aaron donald jalen ramsey. Now he does get credit for hiring brand sailly but like i view any of the shanahan offense of guys like the they love running the ball which to me is a physical characteristic but are they like tough bill. Parcells harbaugh types. Now so i. I've come around on the floor. My question is about scouting smaller. School players is from matthew. I appreciate what you said. I want to read all the compliments. Though i do i do enjoy them but gillam gearhead the. Nfl has had many players. Make the big time by coming from smaller schools. Examples jerry rice. Terrell owens shannon sharpe as a scout when you see players from smaller schools. Standout how do you determine if their dominance is due to their talents or simply a product of playing weaker competition. This is a great question when i mentioned earlier. Ramsey's barden who the giants giants fantasy. Football knows he came from cal. Poly when i was there. He broke jerry rice's records when he was at cal. Poly in ramsey was like six six. He was enormous unsolvable. Well obviously in division one. Aa there wasn't a corner in the conference. Who could hang with them like he just destroyed people if you would have put them in the sec. He would not have been as good because once he got to the. Nfl couldn't get open. So it is very very hard to determine when you're watching trae lance you can see the physical attributes but he's ultimately doing it against guys that are not gonna play in the nfl now just because you play in the sec. If i'm a pass rusher around wide receiver every game. I go up against the guy that might not be an nfl player but four or five times a year. I'm going up against a first second third round pick so i can watch that game and see how he plays against an individual also gonna play in the league. One thing bella check has done. I think he's talked about it but it just well known in the league. He watches the previous year's tape. So if you come out as a senior he'll watch you as a junior because the guys you played when you were a junior have been in the league so he goes. Well you were beaten this defensive. Tackle you kicking this guy's ass. He's a starting guard for the packers. You beat this teams but this center starts for the billups. We drafted this left guard. So i can put two into together. It's really hard to do that in smaller level programs. What you have to do is siphon out. The physical attributes is he fast. Enough is strong enough. Does he have the speed. If he's a quarterback is he had the arm strength. if he's a linebacker does he have the place speed the tackling ability. It may be for the individual position. But it's difficult it is a projection. It is an educated guessing game. And then you also just project him to other players in which he plays like but yeah. It's it's much easier to feel confident about your evaluation on a guy from oregon on a guy from ohio state on a guy from texas right than it is from weaver state. Now just because you're playing weaver state or mcneese state or insert. Whatever small program does not mean. You shouldn't be drafted in the top. One hundred picks does not mean that once you get to an nfl training camp. You can start. It's just easier for a general manager to convince his coaches and his owner that the guy from a bigger school. You should pick 'cause like ulysses some guys i. Is it fair to say. All three of those guys are outliers meteorites or wider superbowl time. Terrell owens probably third bein randy moss or may help maybe second in shannon sharpe is a hall of fame tied in one of the greatest pass catching players in league history. So i would. You can't use the true outliers. Right when talking about quarterbacks compare everyone mahomes we just need to compare people like kirk cousins right to jimmy garoppolo just like middle of the road guys when i think so too often in meetings i was never great at this and i'm not good at this. Some of my friends in the league are really good at doing player. Cops i think too often with player comps. Unless you're like a guy going in the top five. If you like a second or third round pick i should not be comparing you to hall of famers. I should be comparing you to starters. Hall of famers are the one percent of the one percent. And it's just a natural reaction right. This guy is going to be like that guy. What's way better today like you know. This is jerry duties like marvin harrison. Jerry duty might just be like Just trying to think of a random player. The problem is you. Don't ever talk about random players right. You would never be like you know mark cooper. He's gotta be like he's going to be like brandon. Lloyd i'm out. You'd be like amar goober. He's the next you'd say. Marvin you just use that verge for rat runners big contests catch guys. You wouldn't be see lamb. He's the next michael crabtree back you. I want to take them in the first round. But if i go. Act the next de'andre hopkins you perk up. You damn keenan. Allen reminds me of say a pro bowler like damn. I want that guy if you say some random guy i don't know i don't know if i see it like if i tell you some wide receiver next is coming out and i compare them to. Sammy watkins it would hit a little bit different than if i compare them to davante adams like damn what the next davante adams. I mean who trae lance. He's the next. You got a little bit mahomes and a little bit of josh allen. What if he's just like dak prescott with a better arm good. But if you said that you'd like i don't know the irony is dak. Prescott makes forty million dollars a year. We always like math. Always round up with player. Cops you always get like you'd rather compare them to reggie white than some random defensive end but we all know. The reality is more likely. There's only one reggie white after listening to the last episode. What do you think about college. Football introducing relegation where the bottom three teams of the conferences. Sec play the top three teams of another conference for a chance to move up into those conferences. The problem is the schools would never agree. Because if i'm in the sec. Let's say i'm i'm vanderbilt who has an excellent baseball program but football pays the bills and my football team sucks. I profit off being in the conference right. I make my fifty seventy eighty. Whatever the money's gonna end up going to from just playing in the sec. Even if i win three or four games get my ass kicked. That money floats my athletic program. Why would i ever vote to get relegated. Right if i was tennessee. Who has been very very up and down more often than not down. I would never ever risk it. Obama wouldn't care. lsu wouldn't care but the lower kentucky's would they a couple of bad seasons all of a sudden they're planning to like keep your spot that too much money to lucrative. The money's gotten so big the key is you want to get into the country club. Do they can't kick you out once you're in the club you're in texas. Oklahoma wanted in the club. Obviously oklahoma brings a powerhouse football program. Texas brings a lot of eyeballs. But they just know they're in you know it's it's a big deal for no different than the big twelve was going like kansas state. Just being in the big twelve is a big deal. The pac twelve like oregon state being a part of the conference. A big deal for them. They don't want to have to fight for their spot every year. And that's just not the way it works you know. And that's just the reality of the way pro sports and college sports now work once. You're in the conference. Unless the conference gets disbanded or top teams. Leave your kind of grandfathered in your set now. I think we're gonna see a lot of change right. And who knows. It's only gonna grow so these conferences are not going to shrink. They're only gonna try to add teams fascinated. Way plays at present. Everyone listening have a great week. Have a great great week. And i will see you guys friday audio.

Because at run to the best you we teach you how to eat healthy and what times of date is going to work for you and with that being said less transition. So this week's topic bo. I think i did. Good on that intro and transition to the next topic right so we're talking about this week the bass diet to lose weight in the summer. And if you've been listening to me for a long time you guys may have heard me talk about the the whole process to see what food groups match your body right what works for you. We talked about intermittent fasting. The podcast used to be called the running intermittent fasting and weight loss. Podcast for a reason. Because i have a passion for all three of those things. My wife had to gash bypass surgery and like two thousand nine or so. Maybe it could have been a little bit later than that. Apologize with the data off my off. The top of my head for her name is nicole. Parker you can go back into our archives and listened to her story So as she was pregnant with my son. I ruptured patellar tendon. At like two weeks after he was born way in two hundred and seventeen pounds. Right the highest. I've ever we'd and carrying extra weight around playing basketball patella tendon. And then you know the rest is history i started. I started taking my house seriously once after she had gastric. Bypass surgery. Couldn't lose any more weight. Wanna drop extra twenty pounds. I decided i was going to join this program where we were you know selling Meal replacements and it really worked until are researching and learning about how to get these resources eating real foods and so i started the run program in two thousand thirteen right along with working with the nutrition company but in two thousand eighteen. I broke away from the nutrition company star focusing on a real foods for results and then i started the podcast in two thousand nineteen and it was called the running intermittent fasting and weight loss. Podcast because i was going to teach people those three things and we still doing so to this day. We hosted a weekly health connection call on wednesdays and that is primarily to help our members focused on their mindset. Because you can train all you want but you can't outrun a bad diet so you have two on wednesdays that's the call that helps our members focus on the intimate fascinating in the weight loss aspect of the run to the best you program so we brought on rhapsody. She has a passion for things as well as all things being. A mother of some amazing children She actually lived in italy for awhile during her college. These and she helps us right the podcast and the the blog post and stuff like that so check out the website so you can see pictures associated with different things. We leave links to the articles that she also digs up and research. So we're going to start off talking about the meta term radian. Diet is the best diet to lose weight in the summer. so if your tummy as rumbling. When you're talking about grill pineapples and peppers and seasoned chicken shrimp and just kebabs. You're going to love this particular. Milk plan the mediterranean diet. Diet is the perfect balance for summertime because it allows for a variety of cookout. Friendly foods like grilled seafood and meats fruit vashem fresh fruits and vegetables. This died even provides freedom to indulge in moderation with a modest desert. See we talked about rhapsody. Being in italy they had a little bit of dessert several times a week. Small portions of high quality whole foods is what makes the mediterranean diet effective. And it's so delicious an easy to stick with. I share a number of tips about diets. Were runners on the key. Condom runs the program. And if you decide to join the program right if you decide to join the mediterranean diet you'll be eating hardy Breads meats and cheeses that n in season produce each day. Does that sound good. Does that sound too. Good to be true right so when we talk about hardy breads meats and cheeses. Some people you know. Maybe they are trying to avoid grains and don't have breads right but however highly processed breads lotta times or the problem but if you actually get a good quality bread right maybe you even made it homemade. Even if you make homemade you may still find that. It's a little problematic for you but again it's all about The quality if you ever notice if you eat processed white bread for example you mejia's eat in e e like half a loaf. You one peanut butter sandwich isn't going to be good. And if you're going to want to three right because it's just so easy to go there but a good quality brad may with real good sources can actually go a long way and it won't kill you so this delicious clean. Eating lifestyle works works like a term in the european countries like spain. Portugal france greece italy morocco. I mean and if you can stick to the plan and you're disciplined about portion control. You'll be losing weight in no time. What about paleo right or cheetah research has shown that paleo is better than kito for summertime weight loss. So if your body doesn't respond well to grains and dairy you may prefer an alternative diet so both paleo and keto diets have proven effective for weight loss and have a more cut and dry list of foods that you can eat and which foods you should avoid. There are many similarities between the two sides. But if you enjoy eating. Fresh cut fruits and garden salads in the summer. Paleo diet is definitely better choice on the other hand. The paleo diet excludes dairy products and sugar-free sweeteners. If you'd prefer if you'd rather enjoyed ice coffee with a fruit smoothie kito will be a better fit so remember. The key is to commit to a plan that you can stick with for the long haul. That's how you lose weight and being able to keep it off. Depending on which food group is more appealing to you. Consider adopting one of these diets if the mediterranean approach isn't strict enough for your health needs. I believe in a thing called the lay. Deny so perhaps you delay. That's a book. By john stevens by the way she also is the author of a book called fast feast repeat. I believe that you may delay yourself some ice cream until you get to a certain goal and maybe that goal is. I am so serious. I need to drop fifteen pounds so i'm not on medication anymore. We're not talking about people coming off their meds right. I'm talking about you. Get your you get your insulin levels on the control you know you. You do away with the high sodium foods. If you're if you're dealing with high blood pressure now it's not to say that you can never have ice cream again but you are land that for a time and then you you know you're denying it for a time and then you can Institute something once in the while that way you don't feel like you're you're you're dying right I wanted to say something under this portion about the sweetener. i'm actually practicing. What i'm calling the keeping it real process. It's very similar to hold thirty in this kind of right right in between paleo as well and so that is i cut out soy dairy alcohol. Lagoons that's a soy sugar processed sugar. But i am allowing myself so maple serb in iced coffee right. Just a splash. And then i'm practicing food for them by means of this weekend. We had a little graduation party for my son I've been tempted all week. Hey there's this new burger king chikan sandwich. Wong is sold. The less you gotta try man is crispy is juicy. You hear all the words crispy juicy you hear the commercials right but then when one of your co workers astana right next to you crunching on that bad boy and it you know but i feel after i eat it out. I don't want him. i'm not interested. You know what. I'm saving my a little bit of processor for my son's graduation party when i'm going to have an ice cream cake. You know what i'm saying and so guys This this is the type of stuff that i'm talking about right Let's see what else we can go. So i've had a client last year. Take me up on the keeping it real hall thirty diet process in the month of july. I've done several rounds of whole thirty. I don't know how this person did it in july. Cosc- you gotta think about in july. It's hot you might wanna co refreshing beer In the summertime. it's hot. You want somebody excluding because the kids are saying let's go to screen parlor or the ice remains coming up and down the street. I don't buy ice cream on the ice cream truck. i'm sorry. I just don't but everyone has their you know. How can i put their seasons in the which may be harder to maintain a certain guy right and so joanna robbins. Shout to her for meeting me. We actually had one on one. Coaching calls didn't talk about that but they are available. You have to email me or message me privately to put on a list for one on one. Coaching calls until i put the button on a website right so therefore coaching calls for one hundred dollars. And they they last anywhere from fifteen to twenty minutes. We do facetime. I breakdown psychologically was going on with you. You know yes. I'm a coach. A lot of our mental brought blocks lot of weight loss issues that we have is because of mental block. Something that may have not been dealt with. We need the breakthrough. It was your goal. Here's a one-two-three process. I need you to work on this week. Joanna robbins took me up on that last year in july. She is what some will consider a smaller lady as it is but she went on to lose fourteen pounds in those thirty days. Now it may be easier for a three hundred pound man or woman to lose fourteen fifteen thousand a month but when we consider a smaller person losing that much that just shows you the power of eliminating processed foods and stick into a whole food approach such as whole thirty so if this person is you whether you call me with a coach call or not if this person is this is how you're going to kick start your diet you're gonna overall haul it with the round of thirty and once again you're y could be different from someone else. So why join a wanting to do this in the summertime. That's totally because he didn't feel good and she wanted to feel good as fast as possible. She wasn't handed a script by doctor. Said if you don't change your diet and exercise you're going to be on. You know certain medications. She just knew how she felt. She's been watching one of her co-workers. Chris ballard tillett and she decided to sign up to the program so no matter which diet you choose to adopt. I recommend kick starting Clean eating with iran. Hold thirty if that is your goal and so this is the elimination died. That helps to cleanse your body and start with a clean slate phasing foods back in one at a time gives you insight of how your body responds to such things as gluten dairy etc. You may find that you're more hungry because you eliminate a grains for thirty days and you might find that you're more hungry once you start to reintroduce them you're like man i just ate but i'm starving again like what is going on. Maybe your body's having a fact to the grains and its causes you to overeat maybe you find yourself bloated after dairy or maybe you don't have any adverse adverse effects to happen dairy. So maybe that's a food. That's fine you right. But this gives you a kickstart is an excellent way to determine if you have an intolerance or a food allergy if your skin clears up and you lose weight while you're doing a month of whole thirty you can pinpoint what's causing the inflammation and rashes another. Great perk to the whole thirty is that you'll get the hard part out of the way right away in the beginning and once you get through a month without dairy soy sugar grains alcoholic looms your palate and appetite will be prepared for a long-term weight loss diet. And you'll be ready to do this for the summer and beyon- now i will say reading melissa's work the author of Her follow is food freedom and sometimes the further away from the whole process. You get you find yourself slipping back into old habits. I like to say change your oil every thirty days. I mean sorry with your taking care of your car. Change your oil every three months or every three thousand miles. That's what it feels like. We need a couple of rounds a year. Kind of we reboot the system as were right. But maybe you are that person as disciplined I know for sure. That's an issue for me. So i'm staying away from all the time. So elimination diets are hard to do. But you're approved to yourself that you can handle it and your next diet will feel like a breeze whether you choose the mediterranean diet kito paleo or something else now let me take a moment to transition into intermittent fasting and how you can add this to your diet efforts and i don't like the term diet around too often because no matter what you choose to eat the The standard american dire better known as sad right the standard american diet. If you choose fast food dasha diet if you choose no matter what food. You're eating that the word diet just means the type of foods you're eating and so don't be thrown off like a mortar die guys. I can't. I can't eat this at the cookout today because i'm on a diet. No like we talked about. What the mediterranean men. Make some real good grilled foods. Now here's how we're going to incorporate the methods of intimate fastens. I walked the majority of clients through this. It's a proven method for weight loss but has other metabolic health benefits right. I help people start off with easier. Approach maybe Just fasting for eleven and twelve hours to get started. Anybody can do that. You go to bed at night. You wake up in the morning. You've already for eight hours if you stop eating about an hour or two before you go to bed and not only will help you with a good night's sleep but you know you get up in the morning workout. Yes wanna fastest stomach and you will be targeting belly fat so eventually people can work up to sixteen hours of fasting eating an eight hour window right.

Perhaps if you need to fit into a costume or gown for upcoming event for example so that's research that Rhapsody had done her job and found. I also i tried the twenty three one for a while. My favorite is what they will call the warrior diet which is a four hour eating as one of my favorites twenty hour fast with a four hour eating window. I'm currently reading a book called appetite correction and that author of that book wrote a book called the fast five so actually fasten for nineteen hours with a five hour window. And i'm dabbling with that. And i'm starting to see that that works for me just adding that extra hour for me because that way if i needed some extra calories or whatever like that then then i'm doing it I'm currently fast right. Now as record record this podcast. I had a full day's worth of work in the community. Doing what i do. And i'm it punching right now. I'm currently twenty two hours fast. And this is intuitively. I wasn't set out to do a twenty two hour fast. It's thursday is one of our training days. I wanna go into that training. The members with energy i don't wanna be sluggish.

If you also exercise to support your healthy diet eat improperly is the main thing but physical activity can take further on your weight loss journey than dieting alone. And i'm just going to tell you. I said this before. Sometimes the system the way the world is set up. They make you think that you got to eat a pre workout meal. You gotta have opposed protein.

Welcome back as i said. We're going to be talking about how you can be more active when dieting for weight loss and there is a good article on the fitbit blog explaining why exercise cannot override a healthy diet. People typically over estimate how many calories they burn during a workout and then incorrectly justify eating foods that lead them heavier than they were before the workout. And i shared a story are all the time you know when i was not committed to running in the summertime and basically because of the heat i decided in which i talked about. This last week's podcast. I would think that. Because i was running up and down the basketball court i will play more basketball in the summer. I would justify going ahead. And having that ice cream or having those those slices of pizza or after basketball's running through the drive through a mcdonald's or wendy's and then realizing later i'm heavier right. You want to avoid making this comment mistake. Commit to a healthy diet for the summer and create a balanced exercise teen that follows the ron rest and repeat pattern. We wrote an article on that guys. Check out the blog. Check the show notes that you can be informed with all these links that we're leaving in the blogs okay and so there are countless studies conducted to determine whether diet or exercise is more important for way laws and what is most effective. What is the most effective ratio. You know that is widely accepted as the eighty twenty rule right. that's right eighty percent diet and twenty percent exercise eating habits determine whether you lose weight or gain more pounds. You can't intermittent faster way out of this. Yes there's books written on the effects of intermittent fasting how you can lose way but let me tell you guys. There's nothing you can't outrun a bad diet. you can't intimate and fashion way to the best weight. Loss results is what we are putting into our mouths and these other things are helpful for sure. Let's talk about these other things that might be helpful. Do you like swimming kayaking or riding a bike while we know guys summertime is the is a great time to get more active. We're going to be doing a podcast really soon next week. we're talking about. How germ rope can actually help. You're running you probably haven't jumped rope since a kid hint hint that's going to be a little bit into the week. That was more share that later but in a future episode. We're going to be tomorrow running tips for kids. And i want to say guys that with the with the pandemic kids being home schooled kids being virtual you know they haven't been getting the gym that they are accustomed to but now with since things are starting to open up a little bit. Summertime is a great time for you as a family to get more active to go swimmin- go kayaking do some bike riding. And if you're are runner check out our previous episode episode one. Oh six how to run in summer heat to keep you going like i said i learned the hardware guy. If you don't enjoy any types of exercise you still can't commit to walking more and tracking your daily steps. The default goal is easy guys on most fit. Bits and fitness apps. It is set to ten thousand steps a day. Park a little bit further away from your workplace. Take the steps instead of the elevator. Whether you're walking or running guys these steps adds up and it gives you the scene anaerobic experience as runs off. You just want to get out there. Marie gary she lost Sixty seventy pounds in his last year. She has iran more than twenty five steps. I'm throwing that number out there. Because when peak at her sometimes she throws a little jog here and there but probably like five or ten steps at a time has about over the last year. She walked her bud off literally but she also watch what she eats and she practice intermittent fasting like a boss. Okay so you can't just practice intermittent fasting. You do still have to watch which eating. And she is actually combining those three things and killed it in two thousand twenty slash twenty one and so if you wondering what is ten thousand steps. That's almost five miles which may sound like a lot. But that's a very cheese achievable goal. If you break it down into shorter walk throughout the day. If you have an office job go out for your lunch. Break to get some fresh air. Take take a one mile. Walk you're gonna cover you know a good Two thousand steps with that right something at somewhere about that all right and if you are serious about losing weight this summer i have an adaptable weight.

And just one year's time. She's ran several buckets. And done to eight ks. Get rates without is it. It's kind of surreal. Actually it went really fast I think fit running and being part of this group during cove it helped with some of the stress of the pandemic itself and being locked in and not being able. You know working from home and that kind of stuff. it really helped me Not to get so caught up in my head about it. But also at the same time i was my body was getting healthy so Increase but anyway. Yeah but i feel good that you know to look back now and i have a journal that i'm keeping the whole time and i was laying since wrote today to see How i fell in the beginning and then my breathing better than i was getting faster. And and then. I did my first five k. And to back on all of that. So cool did that and So really chosen to. So i wanna give to your door. She's not here right now.

So keep calm and runs you my friends boy. Was that not epic. Okay to have those ladies side-by-side sharon lisa diaz story and share with everyone the beginnings of jessica young. I'm blessed. I'm privileged so happy for both of those ladies involved and i hope that it inspired you and to transition to from what lisa said about running for more than just races but her running is one to allow her to have some great interaction with her granddaughter. Be able to chase her around run around. Take a depart. These different things on tuesday with the week. That was okay jessica young. It's only her second week. It was her third training with us. She sews up to the park. And i've done something that i've never done before. And that is have a little speech with everyone. I didn't tell them what the workout was. We warmed up as normal and then we got into the center of the field. And i told them this said we run for more than just signing up for a five k. Or signing afford half marathon. Do you realize what you can do because you run if someone says hey. Let's get together and play street hockey or a pickup game or basketball or hiked a the mountain. I mean what can running actually lead to. We had a fifty three year old woman in our program who actually because she started running with us and because she started dropping some weight she had the confidence when someone said hey. Do you want to join us for fuel hockey. She was all for it. She was load nervous. She was a little intimidating. Shout out to holly madamba for distillery right. And so she was shot. She was nervous. But at that time i was going over. This book called the five second rule. And then the five second rule was like when you hesitate when you are in doubt countdown from five five four three two one and take action and that's well holly did when she froze when she was outside of the gymnasium with her gym bag in the front seat she reached out to our accountability group. Jamie burke actually said hey. Give get your butt in there. She had an amazing time. That's what runny has had allowed holly to do so. I said guys. We're going to play a game of alternate frisbee okay. I never played that game before. But because we run. And we do different things like speed rose on tuesdays. We practiced a run wall run. Guess what i told him. I say guys this will be times. When you're squinting trying to catch this frisbee. There's going to be times when you need to patients off and walk it out because the frisbees way on the other side of the field you'd learn have to play defense. Oh my gosh. It was so fun guys. We have ladies in their fifties out here. I'm not sure how. Old leonard is. But i know norm is like fifty six years old. They all were like children. I mean they were having such a blast and some of them had little doubts like What is awesome refers be. I haven't thrown a frisbee. And that's what i'm saying unlocked entertaining you. Maybe then at the end we were able to say to them. Now that you've seen which are capable of now that cova is allows them more gathering and people are families are starting to get back together when you go to that cookout this summer. Get the kids together and don't be shy and go play a game. Unfortunately kids may be on their smartphones playing games on their phone instead of being active with you are not that person. You're going to be the one that actually gets up and be able to go play frisbee football basketball. Whatever is that you can get them out. Running is going to be an amazing thing so we also want to give a shoutout to marie gerry. Who walked thirteen point one miles. We talked about her before as she did. It was on day. Five hundred of her streak of walking at least two miles a day. She had a streaks within streets. Okay she started at one mile a day streak but then about twenty thirty days into ashes. She bumped it up to two miles that she bumped it up to three miles and she has a goal that every five hundred day her next milestone would be five hundred of three miles a day. She's gonna walk a half marathon for a special cause and so this particular one that she just did was to help support the shriners hospital for children who one of our members had to have surgery on their for their baby to club feet had to put put in cast shriners hospitals. Take care of everything that the insurance cover. And so marie gary wanna res a couple of hundred dollars and probably even got more With all the fanfare loved that she got for doing that. So thank great job ray. She may not have been able to do that over a year ago. But since joining the keep calm run to the bus you program. Stan motivating plugging into the health.

No big deal. I am not an elitist. So then a boorda's but two hours fifty minutes. They bored us We do find out that the air conditioning is broke. That's fine no big deal and after being on the plane about twenty minutes. The captain says well. I was being optimistic. You're gonna have to d board deplane so there's some groans not from me mr guy. I'm like whatever look at my kids. That's life first time we get off the plane. We wait another hour but the crew. It's a small plane and you know little inside information on the aviation industry when you get cross country flights. You know boston l. A. new york to la. You know seattle miami you get the experienced crew you know. They don't do the commuter flights the hour flights they don't do those see. You have a very young crew very young pilots. That's fine again. I am a man of the people but the young crew as we deplane. And it's hot now. It's ninety degrees forgets to close the windows as they try to fix the problem so after about an hour waiting they get us back on the plane and it's a sauna. The plane is at least ninety. Five degrees probably a hundred a woman next to me. I believe past out. So we're on the plane for about a half hour knocking at name. The airline not here at ruin anybody's life or employment so people literally are just the amaker masks right. It's ninety degrees the the the air conditioning's out the plane is an oven so people are walking up like everybody sweating. I'm not a huge sweater. I'm sopping wet so they deplane it again now. this gets audible groans. Everybody's a little feisty. Now remember this. Is jackson hole wyoming. Very nice town not a holiday weekend. That was last weekend but nonetheless. Small town at it is packed as you know around the country if you've traveled all this summer airlines rental cars hotels restaurants are absolutely packed at least out west so as they deplane us for the second time. We have to wait for our luggage to get off the plane. Were the last ones in the airport for some reason or bag. Just don't know got stuck broken into mishandled. Who the hell knows. I look at my kids. And i'm As we wait for our bag get on the phone and start looking at hotels. I don't know if this town has one now. We stayed in teton village. I called our hotel. I talked to a person that hotel i said. Can you check in the teton village. They said there's not a single room so all of the kids were all looking at hotels a through d daughter d through l. son m. through z. Me finally w the wyoming in we find a room now. I'm in a rural airport. And i have to get to the hotel and as not a lot of uber. Drivers in jackson wyoming. I get incredibly lucky away. Word potentially drunk sedan pulls up. And i walk up to him and i say Can you get us to jackson. He says i can. But there's somebody else here. I'm picking up and i think a brother so that person disappeared so after about a ten minute search. That person disappeared my kids and i get on into this mini van with an attitude. We get to jackson to our hotel. Fine hotel the wyoming in very nice not bothered at all. They have nowhere to eat. Everything's book would go across the street to the sidewinder everything booked. Everything's hour and a half two hour. Wait it's hot. We'd been in an airport for five hours deployed twice soaking wet. So we call an uber driver. We got lucky. Young man picks us up. We go to four different restaurants. They're all in town jammed. I give the uber driver. Twenty and say will you go through the drive through at mcdonalds. He's absolutely. I will didn't want food.

Great night's sleep great. People were all drained wet gross. The flight was canceled but rescheduled for nine in the morning. Get up uber airport. All good we get on the flight. It's late not delayed. It's late appears to be a problem but the crew were just gonna take off. We get in the air knocking name the airline. Everything's fine so at this point we got about thirty to forty five minutes left on the flight. Back to la. I go to the bathroom.

I wanna talk a little. Bit about aaron rodgers. Adam schefter was talking to chris. Collins worth an pf and reiterated that nothing has really changed with aaron rodgers. He's miserable and he wants out and we all like to hang out with a version of ourselves. You know musicians hang out with musicians. Athletes hang out with athletes. Pretty girls hanging out with pretty girls. Republicans hang out with republicans liberals hang out with liberals we all hang out with versions of ourselves. People with big egos like to hang out with people with big egos thoughtful people hanging out with thoughtful. People am aaron. Rodgers has real deep connections to hollywood and leads me into a store years ago when i worked. Espn i would come at about three to four times a year to do events the sba or shows radio shows in los angeles. And so i got picked up foreign event one time and i was in the car for about an hour traffic. I landed about three in the afternoon. L. a. traffic was predictably awful. And the two women that pick me up and took me to the event. One joan had married and divorced an actor and the other woman whose name i forget had currently dated an actor had recently broke up and dated another actor previous to that and so as we sat in traffic for an hour is married guy was fascinated by it. I was just asking questions about like dating actors so between the two women. There were three relationships with male actors and it sounded like it was they were talking about the same guy very needy seeking approval. Validation was important needed to be heard. Not overly self reliant The these are people that moved to los angeles chasing a dream. You know. There's an old joke about la people who moved to l. a. Think they were too good for their hometown. And when i listened to these two women joan and the other woman you know they went on and on about how difficult it was to date somebody that constantly sought approval and that it was just exhausting to date. Actors and aaron loves actors. Aaron if you watch him since he was in green bay constantly needs approval constantly seeks to be heard Is deeply bothered by what virtually every quarterback goes through in the nfl. They don't ask your opinion on personnel. Nor do they ask it on coaching. Tom brady the greatest quarterback ever ballot check. Didn't care bart star vince. Lombardi didn't care joe montana bill. Walsh didn't care that's the construct of the nfl business. It's different the nba. And you know it's funny my childhood a child of divorce. I had to be very self reliant so needy people wear me out. I've had friends. I've dropped relationships. I've ended I if you're seeking approval and pats on the back. I'm on the wrong guy to hang out with. But as i as i watch erin and you know kind of his hollywood friends. And i live you know fifteen minutes now from hollywood so i know enough people in the business a lot of executives behind closed doors. They talk about kind of that. Dna that that personality makeup that you deal with constantly it's hollywood's like baseball. If you're a three hundred hitter your hall of famer you get turned down seven out of ten times. And that's if you're a star and midwestern people are if nothing else self reliant you know. They don't make the most money they don't get talked about The jobs are harder. The weather's worse. And i've always thought erin is such an odd fit in wisconsin. He such an odd fit in the middle of the country. And you know when you couple that with what has transpired in the nfl. Over the last five years now quarterbacks were always stars they were always the most important player but there was a time in the nfl to years ago. Maybe even fifteen years ago that you could have a great defense and star running back had lead your offense and you're a super bowl contender and those days are gone. It doesn't matter that buffalo or kansas city. Don't have profound running games or great defenses. They've got the quarterback because the rules have all been altered to to make the game fast high-octane and spectacularly offensive. And so now you. Have you have equipped quarterbacks with even more power so more than ever an ability to handle that glamour handle that stardom will become really important. Brady handle it flawlessly overwhelmingly for most of his career so as russell wilson. So we're now giving aaron rogers whose makeup is a little hollywood a little needy seeking validation seeking his opinion. Be heard we've now given him. This unrivaled power and i don't think errands ever truly going to be happy. I think it bothers him. That matt stafford ended up without rams roster. I think it drives him nuts. That brady though brady didn't have any freedom. When he was errands. Age drives him nuts to some degree that he's just stockpiling super bowl trophies and now he has power and he's heard in the front office. You know there's a weird stat with aaron rodgers that i uncovered about six or seven years ago and started discussing and it doesn't make any sense for how profoundly successful and talented he is. He has fewer fourth quarter comebacks. Than andy dalton. Think about that. Then matt stafford. Why errands not a foxhole. Guy errands a bit a front runner again with a lead errands comfortable. Fantastic the spotlight's on him. He's getting validation. We he is basking with a lead. He's comfortable but Aaron trailing late games. that's not his personality. He tends to be more cynical than optimistic. I mean russell. Wilson is almost corny. He's so optimistic but look at all his fourth quarter comebacks. A business guy once told me early successful guys at you. Have to be optimistic to be a billionaire because all businesses no matter how successful. ar netflix amazon docu signs zoom overcome obstacles on a daily basis. You're constantly pivoting and business. Your it's so competitive you have to believe you will endure. You have to believe there's a solution to your problem. And that's a really important quality to quarterbacks. You have to be optimistic. Almost two eight. Tom brady russell wilson. Andrew luck a level. That's it almost doesn't sound authentic. I don't think that's errands personality. I think errands absolutely brilliant. But i don't think he has the personality and the makeup of what. You'd ideally. Want your quarterback to be. He's just so goddamn talented that it works. This is not a criticism of erin but when you watch somebody play for a decade and you hear how he acts you. Just come to certain conclusions. I remember years ago. I had said about fifteen years ago on the air. I hate his body language. I think he's an unbelievable talent but his eye rolling. He stands by himself on the sidelines. I don't like it then. You started hearing you know. Occasional teammates criticizing then like his brother or his parents. And i i got a lot of heat. From milwaukee or the green bay press and then bob mcgann a longtime writer who now writes the atlantic i believe for the packers came out and acknowledged about five years ago when he left the local paper air and is a lot of work. So you know. That's why i just can't i've taken green bay out of the super bowl window. I always feel like my career. I picked the right career. I talk i talk to myself. I talked to my car. I talk when i jog. I'm a professional talker. I pick the right profession. I get have any opinion. I want i get to talk. I really lucked into picking the perfect. Profession erin is super talented. But i'm not sure he did. When i was watching him on jeopardy. It was almost as if that was the perfect role. He gets to be the smartest guy in the room. He has all the answers. He gets to tell people when they're wrong. He controls essentially the tempo of the game and just has to occasionally throw to a commercial instead of a wide receiver disagrees with and doesn't trust and it's not a criticism. I think his personality is an ideal for a quarterback. And i go back to that stat with aaron rodgers where he has very few come from behind. Wins which is fascinating to me. Fewer than matt ryan fewer than andy dalton fewer than derek carr it unexplainable other than that. Aaron feels e. Special wants to be heard is not about overcoming is kind of a needy guy which is the opposite of people who wear cheese hats at fifty years old and go to his games in sitting nine degree weather to cheer on aaron rodgers. We bring on eddie johnson. I don't know if you remember. Eddie plying i'm in my fifties seventeen years beautiful jumper and what very few players do is end up as great broadcasters. He's one of them for the phoenix. Suns he's been a sixth man of the year. You last seventeen years in this league. You had to be coach. -able you had. You had to know your stuff. If chris paul demanded a four year deal. I'm not sure i'd resign him at three. I would Take me your opinion on. What do you do with a thirty. Six zero point garwood some injuries. Hey he he's the president of the players association they don't take pay cuts drew brees to not take up when he was the players association. Guy when he wasn't he took a pay cut. Chris is not gonna pay cut. Wh where do you. Where do you land on bringing him back or potentially saying okay. Now we've reached a point where it's booker and d andres team and maybe just one championship. We can live with and then by for the next three years for the next one challenge for chris and the sun mosul sons. Obviously is they win. type only one player. That's walk away from his team as a free agent. that was. Why can't see chris doing can't i. I think he saw what happened in the situation. Quiets aid in toronto. Think they probably will want again. Who knows i do. Chris is subtle here. he's very good friends. With james jones is very fragile. is very good friends. Look with devon booker in the jury. I mean he has the perfect world if he's still interested in a ton of money. I don't know if they can give them for years. But i do know that they intend to try to keep in. I think they're going to be very aggressive in trying to keep so in. He also knows colin that they have to get better. I mean even though they're in the finals to compete with the lakers next year next year so whatever they do in brooklyn they gotta get stronger right they gotta go out and sign some big bodies. Get stronger in order to do that. You can't be over the cat so it's not a formal really into corner. But i actually believe this is where he wants to be. I think they'll sign a way to work it up. You know it's interesting because jay crowder is actually a very valuable player because of his physical nature. A three d. guy deandra eight and it was the day i got no discussion with a buddy of mine i said. What would you draft. Because you have chris paul you have as backup i. We were both talking about what you would draft. I said i think if you're phoenix you could just draft best player available but the way it you're making it sound. Is you have to go after muscle. You want another big. I mean shar went down and that's all that might not like it was major but it really is because the andre embiid vows and so we didn't have to worry about what normal foul trouble it no-one to guard on and they just need some more physicality back the young kid mitch like he's not totally rage abel smith they eventually will be but they just need some some some ball. Bobby what bringing them off the veteran or guy each claiming role that kinda guy. And that's what they're going to need and this'll be up if they pay out a lot of money and not go get a guy like support for this podcast comes from. Cslr clear if stubborn shower mold.

Nfl scout he is the host of the three in out. Podcast we are going to. I'm not gonna. I'm not going to give it away but we're gonna have some big news with john middlekauff soon. I'm gonna leave it at that. You know in terms of going into predictions the editor thing. All throw this out to you because of your bay area knowledge. I had the raiders at seven and ten and there were there was two sticking points from me one. I think they have for the last. Three years reached in the draft. I don't think they're very good at it. Secondly i think their offense of line now is becoming more dependent on richie incognito in his late thirties trent brown john gabe jackson's gone and the other thing is i think it's not a line of bullshit but i think i think gruden's kind of highly energized. Highly optimistic worldview. I think some players are going to start tuning him out. Where do you see the raiders. This year i think the afc's loaded first and foremost it took eleven wins to get in the playoffs last year. The raiders who actually at one point in time. I think we're six and three and it looks like they had a chance. They missed the playoffs last year. By three games three. That's a large margin and have the chiefs and their division which they actually played pretty well. But i mean the chiefs were way better and if the chargers coach is just solid years more talent there i also think like you said they could take a little bit of step back on offense because their offensive line and their defense. They're drafting their back. Mike mayock followed his career for decade plus or whatever on network and he always had he had khalil. Mack over cloudy. It was always like football guy swore by. Yeah and he gets with gruden and now he's taken if he would had in his ranking some of the guys he took it would have been the biggest story for you guys like me and you in march. We've been talking about what this doesn't make any sense. He has this player and grew. I mean that's what happens when you give a guy one hundred million dollars. He's a terrible personnel guy. I think it's proven he's pretty good on. Offense knows nothing about defense. He took a decade away his handpick. I had a fire midseason last year. He brings in gus bradley. So now they're pivoting on players that they already had invested in the last several years. Who worked at good anyway. You've invested high picks in these guys so they're kind of spinning a neutral when the afc. Cleveland got their act together. Now baltimore's a powerhouse. The chargers might have a star quarterback with the culture. Rolan right the afc east could be really good. The bills are good. The dolphins are good if the patriots kinda solid. It's just going to be very very difficult for them and they do. The crazy part is if we just haven't figured out the quarterback quarterbacks actually been pretty solid. Yeah you know who. who can't. When you have a solid quarterback coaches making ten million dollars you should be if they missed the playoffs. Your four missing. I mean that's pretty nuts john. It's been it you nailed it. I mean you said you don't take that long and come back in an industry like this and clearly you can't be done. I mean the two industries that we talk about a lot technology in the nfl. I think they're really hard industries to leave an for ten years and come back. They're very fluid. Fast-changing often pivoting industries. And you know something else about gruden. And i like john. But you know chris ballard. I'm friend of chris. Ballard and tom to lesko the chargers gm and the colts champ and they both have the same personality. Their their stoic. They're very bottom line. They're not emotional. I think when you get into personnel. John and you're a former nfl scout you really. There is value and not being highly emotional. You cannot fall in love with players you can fall in love. The traits decant fall in love with players. John falls in love with players when then falls outta love right really fast and i think that the way he described those guys and i know andy has beach now. The andy's a lot like that too. And i think kind of taken on that personality with the chiefs they are the you know the guy's not working out they'll pivot but they don't get tied to a guy that they have to have. They can move grew. I have to have this guy. Well john instead of taking him at seventeen you can get this guy in the middle of the second round to me. The draft is one big marketplace. It's not just knowing. How good the player is you have to know what his price is going to be. You wouldn't pay five million for a million dollar home. And that's where the best general managers know the ballard the beaches the john schneider's know that they can trade back and get a guy that's why everyone freaks out. It's not that these guys are terrible players. But you didn't need to take them there. You could have taken them two rounds later taken another guy and still got the player and then if that guy kicking yourself and it's happened to them now countless times the guys they pass on because of the guy they have to have because of course. Jon i got to have this guy and then two years later when he can't place freaking out and firing people so i bring on my friend marcus thompson. The athletic so my my my opening takeaway. Marcus chris paul when well rested. Looks just absolutely fantastic. But chris paul later in series when he doesn't have big rest. I thought chris so tired and so worn out tonight. I thought to myself if i'm phoenix. I'm watching that game. Thinking signed chris baldo a three year deal. What did you make. Chris paul's performance. Let's start with that. Russ this you know. That's fifteen turnovers in three games. This is yeah. Very un. Chris paul like i do think he looks thirty six years ago. I do think we're seeing. Chris paul in some of the issues we've had seen him sustain for long series. I mean this might be three more games right. He might have to knuckle down for three more games. He he's got to play better. He's got bounce back. He's doing pretty good. I kind of orchestrating beings. He's still the the the consummate flora general. The problem is they're set up for him to be more than that he can't be out there. Just okay here you go book he go eighty. You cut any chris baltic. Gets you twenty five right. So i think It's surprising to see him. Turn the ball over like this but also they gotta figure out a counter. Because i don't know what might mood. Holder was doing anyone but game too. He said hey drew. I want you chris paul harass him and i want you to stay with him and it's a problem for chris ball. It's been a big problem. And if they don't figure that out they they just go down the latest in a list of Disappointing instagram's for well holidays. Thirty pounds heavier. i mean. Drew didn't shoot the ball particularly well. You know it's funny like they need middleton to be shotmaker. They need to give thirty. They don't need drew holiday. They've got some depth. They've got an eight-man rotation they don't need holiday to be great offensive player. I thought tonight. I thought he kind of pushed chris around forced him off forced him to the side. He's not comfortable with. And i sat there and i watched through hauled and i'm like i don't need his points tonight. I thought he was a. I thought he was a huge factor on the defensive end. He's a funny player that we've if you've walked if you watch the league we do. He's a very very good player. He just hasn't he doesn't get on tv a lot. This is a high profile series for them now. People are pushing back going know. Everybody tells me that drew holidays underrated. Now he's overrated. Because i hear how often he's underrated. But i thought tonight you could make an argument tonight. He was as valuable as anybody on the floor. Except khris middleton. I'm still on. The drew holidays underrated bandwagon. Don't don't kick me off yet. i'm still with it. I'm still the like still like drew. Like we gotta respects ruse name and his game. Because i mean i'm being a little facetious here but yeah drew's giroux has stuck it up on offense board than you thought you know you know. Some people are calling him. Drew bledsoe right but menace. Har is hard to do what he's doing. It is hard like this is chris. paul. We're talking about this. Is patrick beverley right. This isn't like you know monterrey morris right. This is chris. Paul is one of the all time greats. His assignment is to make his life miserable at my less than a player he was so you just. You just need this right. You need to do that. And he's done it. We kevin durant like he's done it like you. Pick the player the series. He's done it saw. I think it's actually incredible. And they do knee. His office hits but if they could get packed cottages in brook lopez the try. It right likes but if pack hansson is airball threes. It kind of drew. I feel like if drew his shots. You can't beat milwaukee right but it will. Drew middleton are hitting shots were. John is being honest. You're not beating baloch but the reason you could beat milwaukee because those dudes all three of those shots all the time right but the job. He's doing chris. Ball noted reminds me of. And i don't know how this is going to shake out in vitals. Vp adult to put drew an air. But this reminds me of lebron being guarded by dollar twenty fifteen and he didn't stop lebron but he just made his life so difficult that overtime had this cumulative effect right and obviously chris. Paul is not putting up the numbers. That lebron was putting the back then late. Is you know you look. At some of those. Broad numbers like forty point triple doubles like how brazen etc. But he got his percentage down. He made him work and by the end of the series browse looking around at matthew. Delaware dove yoga. And i i feel like drew is that you're on the scene where he's like. Look i'm just gonna take the best cool the head of the snake and i'm going to make this dude not want to be here riley miserable and for that's a pretty significant. Sita is level. So you know. I still like phoenix to win this series. It feels like i picked phoenix and six will pick him and seven. They finished the season and the series at home. I do think you know. They prefer an uptempo and they're not getting it as often as they'd like booker was phenomenal. Tonight i mean the call at the end of the game. We can argue about but you know come on it. The intensity in the last six to and that game we we just got to get over it. That's the reality of it. You're gonna start going. They don't referees. Don't wanna foul out stars take lance so we can swallow way right. If you've run with a pandemonium in the streets but i do look at phoenix. And here's the upside chris. Paul was a complete. Non factor in fact was fairly miserable and i came down to the last minute and a half. I think if i walk out of here you know if i walk out of here and i'm phoenix and to the next three or at home i still like phoenix your thoughts. I mean i like these. are i mean game. Three milwaukee ran away. but you know they they. This was a survival right here. Like the triassic a coupla plays different way. You know didn't get that baloch right leg. You're talking about some different. So i i don't think they're out of the woods. All they did was hold her they have to win phoenix. I don't know how they're going to do that. They gotta win. Phoenix phoenix is incredible at home. 'cause in phoenix like buckle. Bridges becomes it all star like cam. Johnson never misses right. You gotta do phoenix. These user nets that they're so high and they play at the pace retargeted. About small marcus. They're so young teams. Play great at home but a blue collar. This is what this is where milwaukee. I have some hope these news. I've never felt this before this pressure thereabouts of feel for the next two days before they'd never been in a game five in the finals. Everything on a line. They never done a mayor that member. The member clippers close out game and they stunk. fiene was so tight object. I'm just like we don't know how they will respond right. You figure chris paul will bounce back. Due to good book is gonna be book right. We know he's gonna be aiden has been one of the most consistent players. It comes down to mikhail bridget. Well it comes out of chris paul not looking like he looks back rights but the you throw in its mchale. Bridges is to cam johnson right. It's their campaigns. Phoenix has this like conveyor belt of really good role players. I wonder how they are feeling right now. Our those shots now that this series to to his game five and his time right. I mean how will janas spare the free throw lot right like this out now. We got a series colin. Now is about to go down. And if i'm milwaukee. I'm saying i don't i don't know if these are cut like that they haven't been through this They are. they aren't even supposed to be here yet right. They've got to skip the step. So maybe they are ready. But i wouldn't put on it because phoenix is really that wraps it up for the week. We're heading into another big week hair. At the volume.
