He's the CEO of Chris Collins Inc and founder of syndicate ex a society for entrepreneurs and leaders. I know that is exactly who we have in our community. He co hosts a podcast called the business outlaws in dudes. I'm telling you fucking listened to the show. He had a Steve Simms from bluefish. He's had a ton of really also guests on his show. And he knows what he's talking about. So we gotta check out Chris Collins. He's the author three books including the bestseller game of occasion. Playing for profits. Latest release is called grand strategy business is wore a second title in fourteen book series. Now, all I want to think about is what a fuck is a second title in fourteen. That means he's got twelve more to right? I don't think I'm. I'm gonna make it twelve more books. I wrote one book and totally toast here is how to think like a millionaire. Let's talk nice guys. Dial welcome. Chris counts. The nice guys on business podcasts. Thanks for having me. On again, writing a book does take a couple years off the end of your life. The funny thing Malcolm glad will said once where he said when you're ninety percent done with the book, you're only halfway. Oh, yeah. I mean, it's so so yeah. So let me start. Let me start with the book because I think this is a real probably a really good spot. You know, they say that that writing a book is is twenty percent writing in eighty percent marketing, which is probably even a favorable. You know, it's not quite as as honest as it could be I think it's more than eighty percent marketing, but what the fuck would motivate you to think about the idea of writing a fourteen book series in. How did you even come up with a number fourteen as a as a as a volumes for putting this this idea together yet? It's funny. So I spent most of my career when I was younger turning around car dealerships, and then from there I started turning around other businesses. But I'd literally go in we eat out. You're like you're in a gun fight with no weapons at all. Because he come in outside is a is kind of basically a turnaround guy in most of the time. I was going into pretty extreme situations like burning through a hundred grand a month. And I gotta stop the bleeding and turn it around is, you know, as quickly as possible, and I got a reputation for myself that I was good at that. But that just meant that I got you know, harder and harder things to fix. And so I I came away with this weird toolbox. The not most people have just also in the fact, I was earning him around. I was doing it on. Shen chill. If I didn't turn it around. I didn't get paid. But if I earn around a male. I I was well compensated for my efforts which I preferred like I like to have skin in the game. But when you turning around businesses on commission, you're not a consultant coming in and telling everybody, the motivational, you know, theme of the month, or the, you know, the book, you just read you really, you know, you have to do things at work your marketing has to be quick in affective, you're hiring. How you recruit people the pricing strategies. How you change the customer's experience the training the fulfillment on the back end in, you know, improving the the customer experience there at all has to happen really really quick. So I sit down to write this book about turning businesses around. And it just I can't really name names. You're really it's just a we it was a weird book to try to ride I outlined in a bunch of times just didn't work. And then I kinda thought like, you know, really, this is better as a is a business novel. Nobody's ever really done. Anything? Like this where you mix it with, you know, real life, and I've seen embezzlement. I've seen, you know, some people go to jail like crazy stuff blackmail, you know, right prostitutes on the payroll like. Coming to collect with you know, thugs like, I've I've been in some some crazy situations because when businesses are losing a lot of money. So there's there's kind of a couple rules of thumb one is that most of the people have to go if a business breaking even you can go in and turn it around really quick with the people that you have earning through one hundred grand a month, your culture that people you've attract the wrong people for a long time. Like it. You know, a lot of things have to change quicken. Sometimes you're dealing with. You know, I've been in businesses where some of the employees were sleeping in their cars that you know, there's bookies there's drugs being dealt out of the business. Like, you know, it's nuts. And so I was like what if I created this scenario I started fixing businesses when I was twenty four. So I was twenty four when I went out and started fixing cardio or ships. And so I'm like what if I give a kid that's twenty four. Businesses that are failing. How would he turn them around? So I created this character Michael gotten Harris who inherits re breweries from father. He never knew. So in the story has his father. Was married to his mom who was a lawyer the father in law lent him money to open a brewery store. Michael's grandfather, and what his his wife. Michael's mother was going to college at the time going to law school, and she came back to the brewery and found him cheating while she was pregnant with Michael. And she said, you know, you'll never see your son, and and he gave away hussy Demi sunset to own the brewery. He did goody he built it up to three. But he was the kind of business guy that was more of an artist he loved food he loves life. He he wasn't really good at business and so time caught up with him. And he ended up being one point eight million dollars in debt with when he was murdered. So he's murdered randomly in one of the the breweries and Michael is in college up in Portland, and they call him down to LA to read the will for father. He never met the inherits these three breweries in when his father William to him. They were. Doing good. But it ends up. He probably would have been better walking away than than inheriting these breweries. And so that's the start. That's that's book. One is Michael now has through three breweries losing a lot of money. How does you turn around? And he ends up finding somebody who's in a syndicate which is a a really tight mastermind kind of aluminum body type group that I've been a of groups like that and run some like that. So he he gets invited in and they you know, they want to help them. So they caught him mentor him, but he's gotta turn it around. And also the thing hanging over his head is that his dad was murdered. And so now he's told people that the daddy issues or real because I never really knew my role father. You know, there's a lot of Michael in me. But they're, you know, I'm also the mentors in the book too. So that scenario now allows me to teach people how to turn around business why there's fourteen boats is each one is a different subject. So this. The second one that we put that we just put out the businesses war grand strategies about you know, Michael has to create a grand strategy. So we walked the readers step by step do conham an interactive exercise where he's learning that, you know, just trying to fix fix three breweries isn't gonna do it. He needs to have what is the strategy. Like does. He wanna franchise him in on a hundred other. Like, what is what is he want to do in the end because when you have a real grand strategy you end up swinging for the fences a little more you end up running your business a little bit different. Like, you know, I'm sure you've heard people talk about when you start a business think about selling it when you start it because how you set it up. How you run it? How you do your books and everything end up making it easier to sell it if you figure I'm never going to sell it. Then you can run it a little loose earn. It doesn't it doesn't matter. So having a real grand strategy of where you wanna go. And so he creates this this grand strategy and kind of goes. Through some some learning experiences in there about what's important that third book, which is almost on is is about, you know, you're operating system for your business, which I call the quad turn ity in its, you know, having the four sections of your business, really healthy. Which is the first one is is operations, which is the culture the spirit in Seoul of your business because that's the hiring. It's the the running, you know, everything in most odors are in the operations category with their business office. And then the the other one is marketing, which I call revival because really, well, I grew up a missionary's kid in Mexico. So I literally when I was five I was the only white kid in an orphanage in Tijuana, Mexico of two hundred kids, my parents lived on twenty five dollars a month. And I like my stepdad used to go round and do Pentecostal revivals, and I would see like how the marketing worked for these. When you go into a town, the other churches in town would actually promote your revival because they wanted an excuse to invite their friends, and I think marketing over time has changed there, really. Is revival. You you do social media, and you're doing all these things to get attention in and build interested in your business for most people don't know how to convert that they don't understand how to create a revival. So the the other part of the quad serenity is revived when marketing then you have sales and sales, really salvation. That's when people accept your product into their heart as their personal savior. So somebody buys your product. They're you know, they're endorsing it. They're saying I believe in this. I I want this. So you gotta have a strong revival strategy to have a strong salvation. And then the fourth one in the kind of the final one is transformation. And that's the fulfillment of the product. You know, a lot of times like in a restaurant. The wait staff gets it. Right. The host gets it. Right. Or when the food. Actually comes out the fulfillment of it. Does it transformed me when they actually get the product, you know, like when you buy an iphone, it's an experience just on packing it, but it transforms us and so your product in how the product is is delivered has to be transformational. And so those are kind of the four keys to the cloud trinity in how you know, it's important to to your business. And that's the next one. That's coming while what I love about it again. I appreciate the explanation, and you go in through is as much as you did in a nice guy community get a sense that that Chris is not only a a, you know, extremely smart business guy in the toolbox. I wanna talk about the toolbox in just a couple of minutes of but his storytelling technique is is something that you're left hanging on every word. And although most of the people the guests that have been on my show, Chris I you know, after about twelve seconds of them given me an answer. I I start to get bored. And I started. I hate to say it start to do. My email. Listen to their answers. And I'm here. I am listening to you. And I'm like, dude, this is a fucking awesome storyteller. And then it, and then it got me thinking about and I love your ideas for your books. You know, I'm a I love parables books that our business books that are written like who moved my cheese, and you know, even Tuesday's with Mari has some business lessons even in there. Even though it's a, you know, it's a story about a guy dying and at the same time. I was thinking I interviewed. I don't know if you know, Michael Hola, handy was the owner and the founder of barefoot wines. But Michael has this business now that he takes business books that are written in a style that probably could use a little bit more story, and he puts professional actors to the parts of the of the players in the in the book. And I thought as soon as you started sharing your story about this this murder mystery called, you know, businesses war grand strategy. I'm thinking holy shit. You and my I I don't know. How do you know, Michael? Or can I introduce you to my? Introduce us. No, I I don't know that I've heard of barefoot wine, but I like the idea that. Yeah. I mean, I'm I'm telling you the whole idea behind what he's got this is mood. He sold barefoot wind Ernest Giulio Gallup for I don't know to a few dozens million dollars or something like that. So I'm like this guy's got some some some business acumen behind him. And I'm starting to listen to you on like, dude is great a great storyteller. So I wanna go back to this toolbox thing as I said for for just a second. Because I think that that's the thing that most entrepreneurs failed a really understand the importance of this of this toolbox. And even as a twenty four year old you started talking about, you know, you had this. I want to call it your genius or that zone of of influence that you had this thing that you perfect it, even as a twenty four year old tell me tell me something like that that that would be important to have. What are the what's a couple of the things that you think any entrepreneur? Needs to have in their toolbox in order for their business to be successful. Whether they do it, successfully or not I it is another story. But what what are some of those things that they need to have in their toolbox to begin with? Yeah. That's a great question. So, you know, I can give everybody, you know, the tools, but the fact of the matter is you're probably not gonna wanna hear this first one. But it's the most important one. And that that's what I mean is when you go into fix businesses on commission. Yeah. It's a different thing than going in. And being a consultant like consultants can throw out figures that can make you feel stupid all the time. And always kinda keep you on a leash when you when you're there to fix it. You it doesn't your opinion doesn't matter. And so the very first thing that you want in your toolbox is that everything is your fault. I love it to own responsibility for everything even the things you can't control. And that's where like a lot of times people say turning around businesses. Like, I did is out to me. And it is because you there's no excuses. If you don't hire the right people if you don't get in front of it, if you don't anticipate it if you don't. Have Jackson balances in place. You know, it's on you. And so there's no there's no award for blaming somebody else, you, you know, you basically kill yourself for three four months in you get paid nothing and in. So owning the responsibility of the outcome. No matter what is is the most important part. And then you know, the way I was doing it is at the end of the day. I had a lot of influence, but I was you know, I wasn't the owner of that country. So his son-in-law was running it. I figure out to make it work with the son-in-law. And I didn't have a lot of time. And so you can't blame the son-in-law can't go back and go, well, the sudden right in so you have to own have to own it. I can't blame it on the market. I can't blame it on a, you know, a declining trend in in that industry like there's no excuses. And so the the most important thing in your toolbox is owning the result. No excuses yet you on everything. And then and then you can start understand that the tools the second. Most important one is understanding the there's no such thing is failure or success. Like, you've probably heard the saying that like, you know, there's people that are poor losers and poor winners than the poor the hardest ones to deal with right, right right in business. There's neither like there's no emotion. Like, I've been told so many times I should go play poker at on win a lot of money. But there's no there's no emotion in. In success in failure in business. It's a lesson in. So if you fail it something in business, can you can you own it enough to be honest with yourself to say why did this fail, and if you own the result, and you figure it out like why why did it fail? And then the second one is if you succeeded be honest with yourself to understand is scalable, or did I get lucky? The problem with a lot of people have is they goes to the Rigo. They think that they're they're invincible in the Jude visit got lucky, and they're not they're not paying attention enough to know that it isn't scalable. And so they try to scale the thing that they got lucky on and they fair, and and so both ones that's kinda like, so those are counter the three most important ones is understanding that you've got to own it. And then you know, winning and losing our case studies, they're not emotions there's no emotion in it. If he stepped back, and you're like, okay that failed. What could I have done different think crazy stuff like the like start with the craziest idea? Like, okay, if I bulldoze downtown outlay. You mind go there. And you know, what one thing that I would do when I when I still do J when I go into a business Vicks. It is all do two or three weeks of research. I'll interview everybody in the place, and and then I'll go away for weekend. I won't think about the place, and then I'll go back and look at my notes and start taking it in. But I don't want to become an employee. I don't wanna become invested in everybody's emotions in excuses. I I want to create a strategy that scale on is gonna work in. So a big part of it is separating yourself from the emotions I went through. I don't know. It's probably twelve or thirteen years ago. I went through a brutal divorce at a terrible time. Like I owned so the ride around two thousand eight two thousand nine at bought a Chrysler Jeep dodge dealership. The recession happened. They were getting rid of dealerships. I lost millions of dollars my dog. Rocky was diagnosed with cancer for the second time in died, and I'm going to my business account one Monday. And I see this this check to like Weinstein Epstein in something. And I I call my wife, and I came what's this big checks in. She goes, oh, I didn't tell you. I filed for divorce Jesus. I didn't. Oh boy. I I forgot to get milk. And that's okay, looking so I actually went to lawyers and there like a lot of people are getting divorced right now eleven rental houses in like, it was a disaster. So anyways, the what ends up what ends up being story in. This thing is cheap and cheating on for six months. And she had a boyfriend, and so like, they kind of made this plan in they like, you know, she filed right at the right time. And it was like it was all very much for them to be together forever. And I you know, I was already to wait. I gotta ask this question. Are they still together? I have no idea idea. Hope they're not if you're if you're listening. Mrs X Collins, fuck you. Okay. Sorry. So Satan had been cheating on me. I think money money because you know, I didn't really pay attention to that. Like, I should've. And so she had access to all the accounts. So she'd been skimming money doing where things whatever. So it, you know, if I tell that story to you just like you said like screw you Satan, whatever, but. Like the problem with that is how am I going to get better? If it screw her like the truth is I'm s Thatta a so like, I I like had to sit there, and I had to say like, okay. So you're you know, this is your age. This is your status like you could blame her for doing it at the wrong time and she had a boyfriend, and she'd been cheating on all these things that she'd done, but the truth of the matter is like how am I going to go into another relationship if I don't own that. And then I had a really tough conversation with myself. But it's like it's hard, and there's a lot of pain, and you've gotta dig date, and you got to like you were really good at lying to ourselves. I'm really charming with myself. I can convince myself of anything. You know, you have to really think about it. But it when I really was honest with myself, I lost this business. And you know, she wanted to go record with faithfuls band in Nashville again, but she hadn't made any money off the song. She did before. So I was passive aggressive with her. And I was ignoring then when we're having financial trouble. I wanted her to actually pick up an orange will get a job and she didn't. So then I, you know, I I was very condescending. And I pushed your away. So there'd been a year. They're of like a lot of things that I had done that did not make that marriage work in. So I wasn't pulling her in closer. I wasn't being vulnerable. I wasn't telling you what I was really feeling. I wasn't asking her how she was feeling is being a terrible husband until even though I didn't cheat at the end of the day. Like that happened on my watch that was my responsibility. And so it's the same thing in business like you have to own a hundred percent of what's going on. Or you're never going to get better. So how much of what goes on? On in business today is do do people not take responsibility for assuming that the majority of businesses that come to you or that you go to in CR -tunities within to improve the majority of the problems are probably right front and center with with leadership and management and the owners in the cease weights in that those folks, but do they are they willing to accept responsibility or will the business only succeed when they're ready to take responsibility and take ownership for what's going on? Well, that's what's sad is. That's the first step the most people don't take that first step. There's you know, there's a lot of steps after that. Yeah. The truth is most people are victims. Yeah. The most people it's like, oh, it's my market. It's you know, it's the the condition. The thing I'm selling customers changed what you know, whatever it is. But the the truth of the matter is if you're paying attention to the customer, they'll they'll tell you they'll tell you. What they want? You know, funny. How people blame their business going under on on Amazon. You know? I mean Petco right now is filing bankruptcy. Dick sporting goods out. The, you know, those companies are going into bankruptcy in. I joked that I could fix Petco in like ninety days. They you know, it's easy. But that no connection whatsoever with their customers. Like, let's talk about that for a second. Not that we wanna give Petco free free counseling here. But but a company like he can't. Okay. Listening. If they write me a check for a million dollars listened. But free advice, they won't they won't. It's interesting. You say that 'cause 'cause I was listening to your interview with Steve Simpson. I it was it was a masterful interview. Because you I mean, not because you did anything right or wrong necessarily. But because you know, what you did which was so brilliant, and I have a lot of lessons to learn. I figure after nine hundred fucking episodes of my show, God, you know, how can somebody in with all due respect can somebody that has a podcast that doesn't have any near anywhere near nine hundred episodes be able to teach me anything. And that's so totally the wrong thing. And you ask him a question. And you know, what you do, which is brilliant. You listen to his answer. You just let him talk you let him share. And he goes so deep into the answer. It's amazing. And you know, and I listened to that interview. And I thought I needed to learn to shut up more often, you know, so hats off to you Chris because I mean as a as a as a show host. You do an excellent job. And I really appreciate it. Gimme me the name of your show again, the the active show. So that I can get some folks in my community to the dudes if you are nice guy community, if you're listening to my show except for this interview. Stop listening to my show and start listing Christmas show 'cause he's is really a great as much better than I am. You can listen to us being strict on Tuesday and Thursday, but all the other shows just to turn them off. So what's the name of the what's the name of the show that you outlaws? Yeah. And it's and you host it with a co host with another guy. Right. Big Mike by my buddy, big, Mike. Yeah. And what's an do? You understand what I'm saying? When I say you listened to. I mean, it's not just like you, let them talk. And then you just fire off your next question. You listen to their answer, and you share based upon that. And it's it's like we're so as podcast hosts were so stuck in the gotta get the my next question. I read you know, I like I write four questions down. I'm like shit. I gotta get to my next question. Like stop. That just listen to the answers to the question. And if I told you, well, I'll tell you all the stuff we've been doing to get better at that too. But the one thing I would say that it's helped me in in that turning around businesses that I am I've kind of a little introverted in listened. So when I go into businesses, I listened more than I talk student on a little intimidating. So I'm intimidating enough to people want to kind of impressed me in share with me. So like literally by going to a business than I interview, all the employees, all know what's wrong with the business, but on those sleeping with you on who's embezzling, they'll tell me more stuff than they should tell me because I sit there saying anything when there's nothing more uncomfortable for people to apt too much on their mind than somebody that isn't talking. They have to fill that space with with air. So when you go into journa- round, a business, and you just sit there, and you know, you just comfortably you're listening to people they'll tell you more than you want. But I'll tell you on trying to get better as as. A interviewer. I've transcribed a ton of Howard. Stern's interviews, Charlie rose. Yeah. And an Oprah to like have you seen that new Oprah one on the Michael Jackson? So she did an interview with the two kids that were on the Michael Jackson documentary. I didn't watch the documentary is this the one where they interviewed the guy that was the boy star in now twenty years later in their Sharon or whatever even longer than cheering on HBO. She does an interview with those two and the director of the documentary. And I like I said, I don't watch the documentaries, but her her skills to interview, those two kids that you know, were molested in the whole thing. This isn't about Michael Jackson. It's about her her skills Interbike, right? Same thing. Like, so I'll transcribe Howard Stern interviewing Louis C K in Charlie rose, interviewing Louis CK. And then re it's different when you read it. So there's a thing. Howard and release gay do or Howard. I'm Charlie rose. Do is they make a point in the make another point. And then ask the question where most people would ask the question. So like, for example, I would say like, Doug. How is how's the podcast going? And then you tell me about your podcast. Well, they'll say, well, Doug you've been doing this podcast. And you've been doing it years in you had a lot of ups and downs. And you know, you've you had that thing with that girl that tried to kill you for cheating on her that must must have been hard. But but told me what podcast need until they've said all this stuff in all of this narrative. And then now we've gone from you have a podcast what podcast need, right like three layers down. Let's artful way in it's really hard to replicate to man, they're so good. But I'm practicing and trying to get better all the time because it's har- while you're you really do a extremely good job. And we'll make sure we put a a Lincoln our show notes. I mean, yes, we wanna make sure we promote the book. But I I would not want to be. I'd be remiss if I did not share, you know, your podcast and the other stuff that you do I wanna I wanna get back just require second. Because what you said a minute ago about head co is so alarming and and shocking, and maybe it's just so typical of corporate America not wanting to or or even small America, small foreign companies not wanting to listen, you said something pretty pretty pretty grand. And it was in ninety days at a million dollars. You could turn the company around and you can do it free. But you you're not going to do it. Because why would you without having that check in your hand? And that was something that Steve at talked about. He just wanted a needed that. For ten grand from that guy with the journey experience. Just so that he could prove that that guy was serious, and I would say the same thing. If Petco was serious, and they wanna get out of bankruptcy for a million bucks. That's just the that's just the by it. So maybe, you know, I I always use the expression of success where like water you could throw it on some people, and they still wouldn't get wet. I tell people all day long. Here's exactly how you make money podcasting and ninety nine out of one hundred podcasters would come to me here. What I have to say and say, that's great and not do it. It's only going to be the one guy. That actually listens to me that's gonna make money podcast because it it's easy to make money podcasting. All we gotta do is x y and z, and it's an easy story. So share share what you do with a company like Petco that could turn them around in ninety days, and it's probably like easy shit number one admit fall right number to come up with a strike or would it? So what is it? What is it that you would do with Petco? Okay. So the funny thing about Tyco is there in a market that's up. So pack pet stuff is up people love their pets. Like, I have four English BULLDOGS in they're like my kids in there is nothing. I wouldn't spend they've got callers that are ridiculous. They eat food. That's organic probably handmade by somebody somewhere. Sterilized organic spoon on to the other. Or what I got one build on it has allergies. And I they my I actually have like a dog. Nanny kind of the the dogs was Ford on a lot. She just gave him a bath in coal, whatever that is. I don't like there's nothing you can spend on your dogs. They're like your kids. Right. It was filing for bankruptcy. But you think about the experience going into Japan co right is they don't know my dog's name yet. They don't know anything about me. But they run their their rewards program. Kinda like Ralph's does there's and so you know, you got you got to change your your thing. Like, they're they take the time. You get your info. So they can give you a stupid little reward thing to put on your keychain. But they don't they your dog's name their marketing isn't specific to the dog. It's not personal. They don't they're, you know, they don't deliver the head store here down the street in downtown LA delivers. My dog sued and just runs it. It's just on continuity. They don't do that. There's like we could we could add four or five streams of income probably that they're not doing. We could personalize it. We could run contests in game affi- customers in you know, some way that endures them to their pets and showing off their pets. We could get way more people in there for events. So what are they saying they're saying Amazon is killing us because they have no brick and mortar in they have a distribution center, and they can deliver as quickly as we can. But we have to pay staff to to make it happen. William they got on the buildings in the overhead, right, right? Right right there. Other hat is is a huge advantage. If you're selling experience, right? So people want an experience nowadays, though, pay for an experience. And so, you know, you gotta deliberate experience. It's the same thing with dick sporting goods like just think about this for a second. Dick's sporting goods is going out of business, and they're they're filing to to restructure, but Vicks doesn't go to the high schools and get people in there when you walk into that thing that should be batting cages there should be driving ranges. There should be things. That are interactive the kids after school are going to Dick's out on this on the they should have fields in the back in the parking lot recused playing peewee football and doing whatever they should have you know, a skate ramps. They should be selling skateboards their Amazon is killing. They're not selling an experience. Fortunately experience in. There's nothing about it experience you walk in. It's. Nike forever is Nike stuff forever in their bats in their canoes. And there's all this stuff. But if you don't wanna canoe, what are you doing? I think they need they need to change their business model. But if I if I'm sitting here with the CEO of Dick's does he want business bad enough to that at transformation because that transformation is like he's in he's in a different business than the one. He thinks he's in rank. So he's he's got to accept that into his art in. That's that's a hard thing to get him to do. But it's, you know, this sort of stopped like, you're you're kind of saying you made a good point of if people don't pay you. I always talk about what we do turning businesses around selling weight loss. So, you know, PX ninety what twenty percent of the people that by PX ninety beginning shape, actually, open it eighty percent never even do anything with it. Right. And so they're marketing they're selling you on how you would feel in your at the beach and people. Rod, and you said it's year old prom dress. Like, they're selling you on these other things. But then when you get it. It's like, hey newsflash. You gotta work out any chicken and broccoli. Companies hire us in there like yeah. But we still want to eat eclairs. I want my son in law to still run things that you know, it's like well, hold on a second. Like, you told me you wanted to fix it. What we do. And I'm like, we get tell me he's only Clair's not work out, and you wanna fix it. So the bigger the check they write us, the, you know, there's just a point where they write the check so big they're like I can handle the check back at the end. It isn't really about the the Ohio high fiving. They wrote us a big check. It's like they're committed. So they're gonna listen in the bigger check the clicker. They're gonna move the more. They're gonna pay attention in the more. You know, the better the results are going to be because they're vested. Oh my God. I mean, I think your points are so valuable, and you know, so if ans- advance your life may be let's let's go let's go to the to the release of of of the fourteenth in your series to fourteen. What's what is the grand lesson that you want somebody to pull away from your from your entire series? What what do you hope to accomplish? By the time. People get to the other side of all of these of all of these books into have as your as your legacy when you're able to say, you know, what I I left it all on the pages. I really did. What would that be? Well, it would be really would be fourteen different things really cause I really spent a lot of time charting out what the fourteen would be in. We originally started riding one book in would just wouldn't offense book in. So I I would hope that people would walk away with the street smart. Business acumen to run a healthy business in scale and grow in not you know, I would hope that they could outperform somebody who went to a bigger college like Stanford or somewhere street smart way of doing business that isn't the idealized one the learn school. And so, you know, a lot, you know, a lot of poor kids spend all this money on business school that come out, and they don't know how to run a business. They don't they don't understand what it's really like in what it really takes. And how committed you really have to be in. So that would be it that they did. They would have the a a street smart education on business that they could perform better than somebody went to business school. So take off your head as the guy that's writing these fourteen books, and and in pod in hosting all of the podcast episodes that you're hosting would what do you see for yourself? I mean like what were you going? What's what what would you consider as your mom? Of of success. If you look back at your entire career in turned around and say, I know I was a success because I was able to do this. What would this be? That's a great question. So kind of at the beginning of the year. I sit down I kinda like figure out, you know, where I'm at do you do that every year? Yeah. But normally it entails another divorce and not there. And some of other everything I wrote down never comes to true. It always comes to ship. But something else great has happened in my life. So I I think on goal setting. And you know, I I have a girlfriend now thank God for JJ. And you know, she said we're not going to go saying this year what we're gonna do is. We're gonna do intention setting. And I love that. Because intentions are so much better than goals because they involve it doesn't matter where you go. It's how you're getting there and what you're all about. And how you do it that that that really mattered? So I was yes, I do. I do like the idea of setting some specific tangible goals for me, but they don't happen. But I'm still in a good mood. Anyway, because it's just how I am. So my intention is just to continue being a nice guy to continue to work hard to continue to attract things to me is I put out to continue to have, you know, love in my heart with everything that I do and how can you ever go wrong? If that's I know that isn't turning into a philosophical podcast. Like that. I, but but it is. But it is so much my way that I've always achieved the things I wanted to achieve in life. Because I have a good attitude about everything no matter how I mean shit. This year has been our. Yeah. I agree. Horribly for me personally. I lost. I lost a wife. I lost. I lost a wife because she left me. I lost her. I don't wanna find your back and I lost. My my brother, my brother recently, and there's been some huge transitions in my life. But I don't even see that those things is negative. I see those things as man what great opportunity that I've had now what opportunity can you find for a your brother passing away? We'll just the Shiva house alone. I reconnected with so many people that it's been decades since I've talked to them, and so many great new relationships and potentially could open up from here. So sorry, I know that was a long winded answer to your question. Right. Great. Same way. Like, I don't I've never been good at five or ten year goes because I always get other opportunities that are different or bigger than what what I imagined. And so it's never worked for me. So this year, I decided I was going to write a little spell that is in the spirit of what you were saying so rated yes, please our main what we do be a game changer entrusted by millions of entrepreneurs becoming their weapon to achieve dramatic success. May we attract the best talent talent that drives revenue in wins? Because it's who we are. They we build an internal and external tribe of like minded believers, avoiding drama controversy made money come easy and be abundant. Then we have the number one podcast show in network in business may we create infinitely scalable systems in then I ended up with this is like my favorite, you know, kind of quote, I guess you'd say what what I see in my mind. I will hold in my hand. What I see in my mind. I will hold on my hands. I love it. I love it. I may. So I just believe like if you can visualize it enough it will become real, dude. Have you ever been to your in the L A area? Right. Yeah. Have you ever been to a guy now? Okay. So a GOP is a spiritual center, I guess, it would be considered a spiritual center Michael with Dr Michael back with he was he's the the leader of the congregation. It's amazing. I'm Jewish guy. I don't go to church. I don't go to to to synagogue. But I do go to this thing called the GOP. A ended is amazing and it hits that exact exact by you know, it's all about law retraction. You get exactly out of life. What you put into life? And and if you believe it, and you know, that you are the source of all things that are good good will happen to you. And I totally feel that you're in alignment with with not just the GOP a, but just the reason that you have been so old tra- successful in your life is because I can hear it, man. I mean, I can censor your passionate about what you do. You love it. There's no reason at what's the worst thing that can happen you shoot to to have the number one podcast. It's out there. And you only fall short of one because the nice guys on businesses the best five castes that's out there. So you're very very close. We just helper bunch of people right friends. Right. Right. How bad could that be? Oh, man. So so totally right. So his book again is called a grand strategy businesses war, or is it business aboard grand strategy which way does it go it syndicate axe businesses war grand strategy. So there's gonna to two titles too. Because this is when Michael realizes that businesses way harder than he thought businesses more. And then he's gotta come up with a grand strategy in that. Well, we'll make sure that nice guy community. We put in our show notes links to to Chris's a website, which is Chris Collins, Inc dot com. I think I got that. Right. Is that right? Chris Renwick, great. We'll make sure we put a link there and in access to all the books. Right there you have links to your podcast directly on your on your website as well. Okay. Great. So we'll make sure that we don't want to confuse our community. There is stupid fucks as I am.

He's also the best selling author of game affiliation playing for profits a book of sales games and motivational tools, ladies and gentlemen on today's show. We are interviewing none other than my brother from another mother, Kris Collins. Clem shows don't need celebrity narrator to introduce this show a dish. Oh. Two-man eight kids co created by two different women thirteen multi dollar businesses. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to thrive time Shaw. Yes. Yes. Yes. And yes, thrive on today's show we're interviewing the incredible. Mr Chris Collins, a man known as the business whisper. Chris Collins, welcome onto the show. How are you, sir? Great. Thank you so much for having me. I know there's somebody out there who wants to know what is a business whisper. What, what do you do my friend? So I haven't been need toolbox that I probably about twenty years went in and fixed struggling businesses. A lot of times in very extreme and dire circumstances. If you're imagine kind of the wolf from Pulp Fiction that goes in and fixes businesses really quick on commission. So I would have agreements that I would only get paid if there was an upside, and I turned him around. So I couldn't be the typical team song that just came in and told people, the idealized version pointed out what they were doing wrong. I actually had to get people to change move at to increase sales lower expenses, raise margins raise our sales per customer, very, very quickly fixed the marketing everything in, you know, sometimes as quickly as sixty to ninety days now for the listeners out there, who who's minds are already blown by that idea. Could you share with us about your, your background, and really your childhood? And how that impacted the entrepreneur that you are. How impacted you become the entrepreneur that you are today. Yeah. And do you, do you think Klay like 'cause I've always kinda thought this like you either had lemonade stand when you were a kid or you didn't. Right. I, I do think there's a lot of truth, what you just said, right there. Yeah. And so I, I grew up a missionary kid. So when I was five my mother, married, a pastor, and their dream was to me missioner's in Mexico. And so they moved to an orphanage in Mexico, and I was, you know, the only the only American white kid out of two hundred orphans in this orphanage and it was right on the outskirts of Tijuana down on the border. And I mean it was it was a crazy experience. We run the orphanage for a couple of years, and then my stepfather became a pastor of a church in a different part of Tijuana out by the beach in a in a place called colonie that God of the NAS, which is crazy. But my first language was Spanish like I got. No, I wasn't allowed to watch TV. Listen to the radio, we only interaction. I had like that as I was driven across the border every day to go to a Christian school. School. And she was this, so I'd hear kids talk about the Cosby show and hear him talk about motley Crue. But I you know, I never experienced any of that. And so, you know, much much later, my stepfather was very, very strict and what I used to. I remember I was in fourth grade, I would go buy, jewelry and Tijuana. And then I would resell it at school, and I became the kid that kids who come to me, and, you know, I wanna do I wanna a silver cross or ring, and I had a little case I bought a little case and I would take into school in my backpack, and I would buy things for dollar and I would sell them for ten and now it's kind of my lemonade stand in fourth fifth sixth grade, and little import export business. If you if you will, you're an early age so very entrepreneurial. You, if you people look up images of you've anybody. I know a lot of our listeners immediately, Google search people that we have on the show to you. Look like you've got a full beard rock in here. I mean you have a it's, it's. It's a bona fide not that you need a boat vacation for me. But it's a bona fide beard. Did you have the full beard when you were thirteen? I mean, were you just born a man with facial hair was that your move? No, I don't I don't at thirteen I might have had a little stash brochure out a little mustache little stubble trouble. But no took a while to grow the beard. And. Yeah. For listeners out there, when you Google me. I could have a career as a beard model. If if I was the cheese that. But now I haven't I haven't tried that yet now listeners out there that know this show celebs ask questions that people say, did you just ask that question? So I'm gonna do the whole thing, where I say Chris with all due respect, which now gives me permission to ask the question with all due respect because you talk about your missionary step dad, and his twenty one year old girlfriend who was not your mom. Oh, you, you want to want the fun. Okay. Yeah. So we just with all due respect let by. Yeah, no. And I you know, you'll you'll take what you will from from this the story. But my stepfather one thing that he did you, you know, besides his issues if he, he pioneered this thing called the house in a day. So we paid an architect to design a house that youth groups can come down and building a day. He would poor this, this concrete slab that was like twelve twelve that had bolts sticking out youth groups who would come down. They would build the walls, they would roof it and then a day they could they could put up a house, and then most people don't understand this. But if you're a citizen of Mexico, you're entitled as a citizen do a piece of land, but to get that piece of land. You have to put a house on it in six months. And so he would work with, with the government he would work with families from the church and the Colonia, and he would time that just. Right. But in the. Summer, he would go around and go from church to church, showing slide shows. That's how long ago it was what he was doing in youth groups would commit to so many houses, they would put them on the calendar. They would raise the money that we send him the money violence supplies. And then they would come down and build one or sometimes ten depending on the size of the church and the us good. But we were from Washington. And so we would spend our summers in Washington, and you would go around search like Wednesday night. It'd be a church Sunday morning. It'd be a different church in Sunday night would be a different most of the time, and he was just raising support, you know. And so when I was thirteen we did our summer trip to Washington. I was staying at my cousins, and I got a call. You know, you need to go back to your grandfather's something happen. And I knew I kind of knew what it was. I had a premonition because he'd been seeing this girl out from church. You showed up to pick me up from school once with her. There been some conversations and some confrontations within about it, but he left in the middle of the night, went back to mex-. Bacau cleared. Everything out and ran away with this girl from the church, leaving my mom, and I in Washington, you know, virtually homeless with, with nothing took all the Bank accounts, and everything's a real classy guy for me, honestly, it was a blessing because I was thirteen. I was having a really hard time being a teenager and Mexico going to school in Chula vista. I couldn't you know, I couldn't talk about the movies the TV shows, I was there was really a gap in what was going on. Socially exult for me just being American in America living in Washington, even though my, my mom, you know, hadn't had a job. And we, we had nowhere to live, except for my grandfather's couching spare bedroom. You know, it ended up being a par or I made a positive out of it. My mom on the other hand, her identity was a missionary and so getting a job losing her husband, he took for a couple of years to, you know, the first year she prayed from the come. Back and people, but hands on her and all that. And so it was it was a crazy experience. But for me the, the one thing, my mom wanted me to go to a Christian school. She just thought going public school would turn me into, you know, basically, things child. I guess if that as possible, and so I remember when I was thirteen and this is where it all kind of changed for me. And I literally had an out of body experience. Is there was this big church in Seattle, maybe seven hundred or so, in the congregation that my mom had a lot of friends in that church? They're very supportive of their ministry, and we went there for Sunday night service and it you know, I'm there working with girls. I'm thinking about girls and at the end of the service. The pastor says can can I get Chris to come up here and I was like mortified right? I got axiom thirteen or not. I wasn't very good at public speaking. And, and I just I looked at my mom like what she goes. No. Go up go up. And I'm like, no. The past is, please, Chris could you could you everybody's looking at me? So I stand up and I start walking out of the aisle, and I I'm like so mortified that I'm being called up on stage in front of the whole church that I literally separated from my body, which is something that's never happened to me before. But I'm I'm out of my body and I'm watching myself kind of walked down and walk around the stairs, and up on the pope in the pastor says everybody knows what's happened with Johnny. And Chris, and we, we wanna take an offering because he needs school clothes, and Johnny really wants to put him in a Christian school. And I was just like oh, gosh. I was just so tired of living on faith praying for everything being for. And I just like it that moment. I'm like, I will never ever be in this situation again, where people are in. I mean, I, I have I give money I, I you know, I'm very grateful to everybody who supported us in who you've been gave money that day. But I, I wanted to be on stage because I was contributing. Them. I, I didn't want to be taking handouts the rest of my life. And I didn't I didn't want it to be that context. I wanted to create I wanted to be into trolling my own destiny. And so that was the moment that changed everything I was like it soon as I can work. I'm gonna work and I started working, you know, from basically that moment, I was knowing lawns. I was doing whatever too, but I was not going to live on safe and offerings. I was going to go out and, you know, I was going to be the one giving money, not the one taking money, and it was, it was a very pivotal moment in, in my childhood because I was never the saying after that, you know, Chris, I think a lot of our listeners out there can identify with, with your story in some capacity of Cording to the, the millionaire next door. I'm familiar with that book or read that book, but it's like eighty percent of American millionaires are first generation millionaires. And it starts with just being just sick and tired of just barely kidding by and one of our show sponsors has been sponsoring our show for three years is here with us on the show today. A Paul hood, CPA meet Mr Chris Collins. Oh, I mean, over there, Paul Ivy meat are you there, Paul? I'm here. Chris paul. Yeah. He he controls my words by cutting the lights out everyday. It's it is instead of phone, sticks across the studio. He talks grew up super-poor. I did. I did do what question do you have for Chris Collins CPA now, you're firms doing great? This question, do you have for Chris by his mindset? Yeah. Chris, well, the what I wanna know Chris in, in our practices very successful. We have clients all over the country and what we do is a lot like you and Klay dues. We, we help businesses become successful for specifically from a measuring standpoint. My question for you is, is, do you see a see a commonality between these businesses that you come in, and work with is there kind of a common theme both on the negative side. And then, so which in reality means there's a common thing on the on the on the successful side. Yeah, that's a, that's a great question. And I don't in in my experience. There is one answer to that. But there's a there's a couple of commonalities and something that I learned very, very early on is the first step in success is that you have to own the responsibility. So there's, there's a lot of entrepreneurs out there that have the right idea. But they're always victim. It's the markets fault. It's, you know, it's the situation that they're in the industry, they're in it's their fault, but they, you know, they don't look in the mirror, so the, the most important part of being successful. Entrepreneurs accepting a hundred percent of the responsibility for your outcomes, whether you can control it or not, you have to accept responsibility. And so that, that's the first part. And then the second part is being a great marketer marketing is probably the most important tool if you can't sell. More and you can't get people in the door. It's really hard to cut a business into profitability. In fact, I've over the years gone into businesses that just laid off twenty people, and I have to ask you get those twenty people back. We, we need him 'cause we need somebody to answer the phone, and, you know, do things and so sales, everything you have to be able to market. And so you can never cut any any business into profitability or I haven't, you know, figured out how to do that, in a scalable in a scalable way. So accepting all the responsibility understanding your market, and then there's a great quote, and this is kind of third one that is you can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else does. I think about that for second. You can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else does it. And if you wanna be successful entrepreneur, you have to have talent around you and talent that can make you successful you need to hire people better than you, you need to have systems in place that they're held accountable for their results. And that they're very clear on what the results are that they need to deliver. But you can accomplish anything in life as long as someone else, does, it, you're going to try to be the one that does everything you, you will implode you'll hit a wall. It's not scalable. You only have so many hours in day, then so much energy. The best entrepreneurs are the ones watching from ten thousand feet and kind of being the puppeteers not the ones in the trenches fighting about oh, day today. And then they got to come back and make big decisions and have clarity and be able to have a grand strategy, and think two steps ahead. It's, it's very hard to do that, when you have decision to tea, and your battled warn and tested so you can accomplish. Anything as long as someone else does Chris, I read where you actually started your career kind of began where you were working in the wash pit of a car dealership. And then you kind of begin harassing your, your boss. His name was dick for like a year and a half to get a promotion. Can you tell us about this time working with dick in the wash pit at the car dealership? Yeah, that's really funny. Real name wasn't dick, like change his name dick in the book, just because, you know, with all they respect respect. That's great. Yeah. What about what though do? Yeah. All respect. I remember when I was a porter I used to vacuum his car, and he used to have this is back when, you know, managers did in cardio ships, did lines of blow, and it was a time I never experienced but I used to find some, some fun paraphernalia in his car, but he so I was in advanced, and my singer was dating this girl who knew a person who something who knew a part time job at a car dealership. So I went there, I had, you know, to have a job to pay my band rent by drumsticks that sort of thing. But my goal is, I was going to be a rockstar is that was my key to success enriches. It was a time in Seattle late eighties early nineties, where, you know, the music business was blowing up and it was it was a good time. So I started as a porter from twelve to five washing cars. My grandfather who was kinda. My father figure always told me that if you work for somebody, give them more than they pay you per hour. You all give them more than you. Always have work and you always be in demand, and I have that work ethic. And so, I showed up early, I gave them more. I did extra stayed late. And I became very quickly the person that they counted on. So I got promoted you tell manager and then I would pull up the cars and I would see that. But service advisors were always in disarray. They the customers were always pointing out things that have been missed when they dropped off their car, and I'd have to go in there and get the advisers to come out, and I saw much money they were making, I was like I wanna see service adviser and I got passed over, I think seven times, so he passed me over seven times, I knew how to do the paperwork, I would write when people would be sick, but he passed me over. But eventually when I got the job, I, I became the top adviser and I was making, you know, nineteen twenty and I was making sixty thousand plus a year. My, my third year, I'm made one hundred twenty thousand and I'm in my early twenties. So it was life changing for me because I, I learned. Lesson that when you're when you're in a sales position in your commission. You create your own destiny. And I could've never imagined that I could be making that much money on my my personality. My work ethic, and my systems, and really, they were systems I figured out systems over time. But I mean I never looked back. I couldn't believe, you know, music became less important to me because I was just like. Wow. In business, the harder you work the better your systems more you pay attention. The, the more you make it was life changing for me. And I, I understand that at some point you started your own dealership, and it failed your wife left. You your beloved dog rocky died of cancer. Did this did this all happen at one time, Baucus through take us if it gets to the bottom? Yeah. So I had I had a car dealership that was in two thousand seven two thousand eight. It was one of the ones that Chrysler wanted to get rid of I had a partner that didn't have the, the resources and are working capital that he had proclaimed to you. We ended up in a lawsuit. They closed that about point to close a lot of points about time. 'cause Chrysler was, you know, they went through some, some changes in downsides, their dealer body, right after I lost the dealership, I pulled up my thank you count and the big check to, like, Epstein Weinstein and something. And I, I called my wife and I said, hey, what's his check this it, she goes? Oh, I forgot to tell you I found for divorce. Oh, whoops. K for guy. And then. Yeah. In rocky Rockies cancer came back for the second time. And he, he passed away. So it was it was funny in the divorce. When I pulled it up online, it the first thing was the dogs to in rocky castaway. So, yeah, it went through a divorce lost my dog. You know, lost lost the business and at the time it felt like my, you know, dream had been shattered, but the truth is, like those terrible situations like that, just when you look back, they, they're, you know, so valuable because the thing that you learn in that moment, when it seemed so low is you're not dead. Like even when, like when I went through the lawsuit on the ownership, I couldn't even put money in a Bank account. I was carrying around like a hundred thousand dollars in cash because every the creditors from my partner, we're coming up to me, and they would seize money when I put it in a Bank account and, and. I was alive, like I just wanted to live like it. You know, they weren't killing me. I wasn't I was deep for the moment. But the, you know, in the end, I'm gonna win the war and that, that lesson. I know people say that when they claim bankruptcy which I've actually never claimed bankruptcy. But my friends that have feel the same. It's like the thing that you earn as like you're not dead like you gotta pay attention learn except one hundred percent of the responsibilities and try not to let it happen again. But you're, you know, you're still alive, you on your website and everything. I've read about you online. It appears as though you're a guy who can help a lot of businesses really rebound, your resilient guy. You personally have rebounded with your career, but you have written about there's one condition that if a business owner can't meet it, you can't help them. What is the condition that you can't help a business owner if they don't do do what? So I think what you're referring to accepting responsibility and wanting to get wanting to get better. Tell the truth more more than anything. So they won't you you're on them. You're not going to work with somebody who can't accept responsibility. You won't do it. No problem. That happens for me in in my business. And I'm sure you, you, you guys have experienced this also is I become trendy, so, you know, I get handed around between guys that are really successful that have big egos, like, oh, Well, Chris Collins can fix that. And so it's a lot like weight loss. So they call me and they want you know, they want the gym membership. They weren't call it and, and they're super excited, but it's like all the people that bought PX ninety when they get me, and I tell them, they got to work out every day, and he chicken, they're like, well, we declares, and we know what we're doing, and it's just like what, what you're doing, you wouldn't be losing money or you wouldn't be in the situation. You're hiring to get you out of it, and you got to understand that you have to change your habits in order to get a different outcome. And I don't like I have magic but my magical only works. If I can create a circumstance and then outcome and, you know, we're gonna follow a different system. Magic doesn't work in your old system that did. At work, but, you know, dies it how a lot of money and have had success have huge egos, Dow's also. And so they wanna hire me, and I'm like this lucky charm, but they don't want to take action and they at the end of the day. Sometimes it feels like they really don't want the outcome. They just wanted me around is, is that like looking rabbit's foot, Chris, I want you to know I've never considered to be a lucky rabbit's foot. You're more of a lucky rabbit rabbit there, the foot in the ears, the whole thing. Now, you worked with many different business owners and you've probably seen some really dysfunctional stuff, so outside of, you know, not accepting responsibility. What are some of the common dysfunctions were, you say, I hope if somebody's out there listening right now and they're taking notes, and they're going, okay, I'm ready because they're, they're coming up to you right now. Kristie you're meeting. You're sitting down with this person for coffee and they're saying till to me straight. What are the most common dysfunctions that I'm probably doing right now? Give it to me straight Chris, what do you got? Okay. So the first one, usually when I go into a business, I usually find mismanagement sometimes embezzlement, but they'll be an office manager or somebody, they can sign checks in the business owner or the CEO isn't signing all the checks. They don't really have an idea what's going on. I've found, you know office managers that have companies that they're writing checks for that. You think they're the cleaning company? You think there's something else? So it's very normal, all the time continue that. I see that all the time, though. Yeah. And it's funny when I talked to billionaires like I always one of the questions I asked you sign every checking I have friends that are billionaires literally still sign every check. And so part of it is like, really paying attention to the accounting and the expenses. And I'll go I said before, you can never cut a business into profitability the last thing you want us have your expenses outpace your your increase in sales. You have to have a tight one. The other one is not I would say it's not dipping their pen in the company Inc is a common one. And so the, you know, the guys that or it's mostly guys I've never seen it yet with a female entrepreneur, but maybe it happens but yeah, just, you know, mixing business with pleasure and employees is, is never a good idea that is more common than you would think, and the access that I have, and the things that I that I see that's one that usually I have. To have a if you had to give people Chris, give me a percentage, I've coached businesses for many, many years. And I have a percentage in my mind of what percentage of people are having some sort of weird relationship in the office. You know where they're dating they're secretary or dating their sales manager or something like that. Or there's investment it, what percentage of the time, do you think there's either embezzlement or some weird relationship stuff going on? That's killing the businesses success. Little less than half. But that's what I was going to sound like right at half. Right. That's dead is quasi. That's crazy. Now Paul hood, you have a hot question. Producer Chris, I don't have a Christian question. You know, Chris, I'm a CPA and what was that first part about people not minding their accounting or their expenses. We see that type thing. Oh, it's one hundred hundred time I have millionaires that come into my office, people that make a million a year not million. I mean you know, they're make bringing in gross dollars. And they have no idea where their money's going. And I talked to him about scouting out. I'm gonna steal your Eclair story there, if you don't mind, but, you know, they just it's kind of, like when you're trying to get in shape or you're trying to lose weight, and you never step on the scale you don't know. You don't monitor you're not intentional. So what I see most of the time is people are not intentional for their success. They're not planning. They're not working toward deliberately everything they do moving. Towards success. And so, I just thank you for bringing up the whole accounting, and measuring and paying your bills and, and expense side of. Thanks now. I can't do anything about the not having an affair side of thing at work. It's maybe Chris is a business consultant. I'm here trying to help somebody build like a linear workflow and repeatable processes to scale. And then all of a sudden, I'm like, oh, wow. Are you aware that this person's dating? That person the person's robbing you, Chris, what are some other common dysfunctions that you've seen up close in the trenches coaching businesses where you say this, right? Here is a common problem. Culture is broken. And so. You know, entrepreneurs don't understand how important culture is and, and I like to say, like, you know, guys have you could get somebody to drink Kuwait, and kill themselves. There was a guy that got a bunch of people to put on Nike Cortez's kill themselves and think they were catching a spaceship to the moon or whatever, and you can't get your people to show up on time or answer the phone. And so, you, you have to think of your businesses, a Colt in a way you have to understand that there's certain things in, in a Colt in a religion that you have to do in your business to get people to, you know, be a culture of performance not entitlement, and most businesses out there, people are entitled, they're not vested in the outcome, their hourly employees. And so, you know, you have to have some sort of bonus system, you know, by my book that they sold, so well game if occasion playing for profits people have to be vested. There has to be a game. You have to get them involved in the outcome and interference. There has to be a hierarchy of performance. They have to know where they stand all the time. You, you have to really, really spend a lot of time and effort on culture, you have to remind them every day in shifts meeting, every two point it a sales board every day who's winning. And who's losing you have to really, really run it. Like, like you would run a coach or church in the military, whatever the analogy is resonates with you, you, you have to do all that stuff, and you have to there has to be an enemy, you know, your cultures a lot easier to create if there's an enemy, and he's, I don't think that people get a little, you know, when I say this sort of stuff thinking like oh, wow. Can who saying this to be a coke? Well, apple, Google the cope, they're working apple and share one of the secrets, and see what see what happens and how quickly you could in jail for disclosing proprietary stuff like it's serious, like you need to take that stuff. Very very seriously. And a lot of entrepreneurs take the culture at the it the. Front lines for granted with an hourly employees that are arguing with their spouse or, you know, they just don't they're there they come into work everyday worried about other things, and you're paying twelve dollars an hour. In fact, that they're going to die for you. You have to have a bigger, 'cause you have to have an enemy have to really understand how to create a culture performance. They also have to see a path that to see a path where they can grow in the come home a manager. They have to they have to know that there's something there for them in the future. You have to genuinely be interested in them. That's another thing that drives me crazy not to go on a tangent. Now gone when we went today, it's business. But like, oh, it's just business really it's just been really been well hours a day here. It's just business. You're on my friend, like usually when someone says it's just business. I'm about to get stabbed or shot or something. It's like no, I care about the people that work for me. They're my friends, if they're not performing, I have no problem telling them they're not performing if they're on the wrong seat on the bus of. No problem telling them they're in the wrong seat on the bus. Our friendship doesn't cloud that, but I want to see them succeed. I want the friendship helps because I want to see them on the right seat on the bus. I wanna see them feel good when they come into work every day and not, you know, feel like they're struggling, so you'd have to genuinely take an interest in your people. You and you have to really understand how to create a culture because, like I said, you guys can get people to drink Kuwait, and kill themselves. You can't give people answer the phone and show up on time. There's something really off. Let's think about this for a second. Okay. Let's say you're sitting down with we worked with a lot of homebuilders. Right. A lot of people that build homes, you know, and in a small home building company. There's a bunch of people building houses, now that's culture number one, and then culture to a sales team. If you were sitting down with the owner of a home building company, and he or she, let's say she could not get her people to make calls while working in model homes, you know, because the model homes, you're sitting all day waiting, you know, and you, you couldn't get the people to. Make outbound calls while working in their model home. What advice would you say what would you say to the owner of a home building company if he's sent him having a hard time? She said, I'm having a hard time getting the sales people to make calls while sitting in model homes, what would you say? Okay. So I probably wouldn't say anything, I would say, get them all together tomorrow morning at whatever. When did they start in a car seven forty fives? And so what we want with the outcome that we want is, we want them to make more calls when they make the call. We want them to make an appointment for a strategy session. What are we what we're trying to set an appointment for these are people who've expressed interest in buying a home in the past. They fill out a form on the website, and we want to call these people to set of a specific time to tour the home and to eventually do a price out. And how many sales people do I have ten? Okay. So I get all ten of them in a room and I'd have a wad of cash. I'd have five twenty in, in hundreds and I, I would say, okay, here's the the game today. Everybody who sets the confirmed appointment. It's ten bucks ten bucks goes to the pot. The person who has the most appointments today gets the pot and I would just kinda start that way. And I would see how it works. And I would, you know, haven't talked trash, I would find out who the top salesperson was, and I would get him talking trash with, you know, the other people out, then as soon as to okay, breaking I go over to one hundred say, hey, you know, Tommy over here said, this is his win, and you're not motivated because you're going through the boars and you don't really care, and I would just, you know, push buttons, and kinda see see if that amount of money got him going. And let's say that seven hundred of going, let's say seven out of a tent seven out of ten of them are now going there. They're rockin. Okay. But you've got a candidate captain sarcasm. Oh, right. So she just won't make calls. And she just won't make calls and she just won't make calls. And then you've got Darth Vader, you know, the gloom and doom guy. So you've got captains sarcasm. Oh, gloom, and doom, then you've got just chronically late person. What would you do with the final three amigos? I would enor- that I'd have a couple of one on ones at them. I wouldn't let them set the tone for the meetings that I was just meeting every morning, and then I would eventually probably replace them if they didn't want to join in, if I got seven hundred ten I don't need Jack wells, you know, taught me that just it's a bottom twenty percent house to turn over, because then your top always getting better. So I, I would be interviewing for those I would also. That's another thing that I do. When I know into business. Yep. There's I start interviewing people even if I'm not gonna hire them ocal rate 'em. Thrills, I'll let everybody see that I'm interviewing I literally interview people that I wouldn't hire them to like walk my dog. You know what a welcome to introduce him to people 'cause I just want him to know that I'm hiring player we go. You're not the only person they can do it, psychological warfare. But it you know, you're not gonna hold me hostage. We're gonna succeed. Either way. I want you to come along. But if you don't want to there's other people that want to do it, and you believe the Jack Welsh philosophy. I it sounds like. I certainly do of every year. Trying to figure out who your bottom ten percent is an and fire these people. Every month. Your every month a years too long. Yeah. You gotta to go every month every month. You say see this is something that's controversial out there. That's called differentiation for the listeners out there that don't know differentiation. It was Jack Welch's method. And he believed that every quarter at GE which company recorded to do it. I really do believe. You gotta be gotta be proven that tree and getting rid of that bottom ten percent, but you recommend monthly. Yeah. You know what happens? But I'm sure you've experienced. This is your top gets better. Yeah. The top goes up until the like what you know, year one when you do this, your bottom was like something, you couldn't even like imagine and year, three your bottom is what you're old top used to be. Jack Welsh also mentioned public Hanes at work. Oh, what's your opinion of that? Yeah. Sometimes you got to shoot a hostage. What is it? He's a guy from Southwest Airlines, and says, never waste a good firing. Oh, herb Keller was in her Keller said that or is it somebody else's southwest? He was heard Keller. Yeah. Never waste a good firing. The guy you gotta be careful because, you know, like when I go into a business, I'm changing pay plans do all kinds of things. You have to be sensitive to that. And people are people. But there, there is a point usually where there's like a ninety ninety day bell curve for me where sales go up momentum starts after about ninety days game -cation isn't working the same people kinda hurt. All my stories. They're just a little bit worn out on the pressure and the the new pace. And there's like a little bell curve. And that's usually the time that, that you gotta, you know, you gotta make some changes and make it very public let you know, let people understand also that the time to move. Everybody's desk. Just move their desk. Move them around change their environment. Mix it up a little bit sometimes. That's a very powerful tool to just go in and like no reason other than your rearranging make something sitting in a different desk. Now. L E. Let's talk about your book game if occasion for profits, and the syndicate X series. Let's start with game if occasion playing for profits, and Andrew, while he's talking about, I want you to make sure that you buy copy of the book by another copy of the book on Amazon and leave. Mr Chris, a great reviews. This is a great book here. So Chris, walk us through game affiliation playing for profits. What's this book all about? So when I was early in my career turning businesses around. I had a lot of turnover when I would go in and I got the nickname, the bulldog and over time I, I had the situation where we were running a contest between some different locations. One was in Texas. One was in California in the normal conversation. When I go into business was you won't work here. You don't understand our customers are different markets different. They won't buy that got all the excuses when I went into Texas, okay? We have this contest between California and Washington, and I showed it to them up front, and they were like, oh, tell us what to do the win. And I was like, oh, you think your market different your Texas aren't gonna tell me it's different here. And they just wanted to beat California. They didn't care. And so I kind of learned like there's, there's this power, you know, Napoleon said my life changed the day, I realized the man would die for blue ribbon, and it really is true right people if there's a hierarchy, there's. Just there's a, you know, thirty forty percent of the population that just can't stand seeing themselves in the middle of the bottom of the list. So that's being the -cation is rewarding behavior creating games and fun to, you know, to create an outcome. And that, that's what I've kinda mastered over the years. I have a funny story for you, Chris kind of a confessional from when I was twenty one years old. I started my first company called DJ connection dot com, which went onto become the nation's largest wedding entertainment company. It's still exists today. DJ connection dot com. And I remember I was hiring, this guy when my first sales guys. And he said, hey, what's the most number of sales anyone's ever done in a week? I just wanna know like because again, I'm a twenty one year old guy hiring somebody my first sales guy. And I told the guy said, well, you know, Mikey, you know, used to do fifteen thousand a week. Now, Mikey was a fictitious a fictitious character that I made up. Like I said. Yeah. Mike, you would do fifteen now begin as a company I would do fifteen thousand a week by myself, but I didn't have a Mike and never had anybody else. And the guy was like fifteen thousand that's what that's the number of yet. Well, this guy every week would get to like twelve I'm going that's crazy. One guy, selling twelve thousand or thirteen thousand and he'd always come to me for approval. And I'm like Mike. You used to get fifteen. This is pretty weak there, buddy. And finally, when he got to fifteen thousand one week so we told Mike you his face, you know, and then I let them know that Mike you didn't exist. And I felt really good about it. But that was a move. So all right. That's the right question, though, right? Right. Person is asking. That's a good sign. It already want to know what the top is now the syndicate series. What is the syndicate X series? So I sat down and I wanted to write a book about my experience turning around businesses. I quickly realized a couple of things, but couldn't talk about the stories the name names of embezzlement, and all the fun that I've seen in still see. And the second one is couldn't fit it on a book. And so what I decided to do. I was going to create a, a, a drama series, where good drama, the sex the murder of the rock and roll was a delivery system for my business experience and, and knowledge. And so I created this character Michael dot Nara, twenty four years old. He's in college. He gets called out of class and finds out that his father that he never knew. Two left his mom before he was born at three breweries in Los Angeles. And his father was a very artistic person loves food and wine and beer, but wasn't a great business guy. But he's expanded to three breweries and he was murdered, and he left everything Michael now, Michael's the twenty four year old business student who inherited three breweries one point eight million dollars in debt and a father that's been murdered. And nobody knows why he was murdered. And they're go, you know, there goes the, the book series. And so the first one is kinda laying up the story of the second one grand strategy. So how you create a grand strategy for your business and systems that are scalable. And then we're going to go through customer experience pricing strategy, accounting. You know, everything is fourteen of them that I have charted out, but they're you know, they're a series, then each one has its own, you know, business less than mixed in with with the story of gotten. They're trying to turn it around. So where where do you call? Home these days. Los Angeles, Los Angeles. Okay. So I have I have two final questions for you there. I as we interrogate you from Los Angeles here. So here we go. Kushner, one you're very intentional guy. So what time do you wake up every day? And and how do you organize the first four hours of typical workday? Okay. Great, great question. So I set an alarm for five, but I usually wake up on my own around four and then I meditate so something I do is transcendental meditation, which has been life changing for me and meditate I'll visualize for for a little while just thinking about things, and I work out. So I have a trainer I pay a trainer to train me because if I don't pay a lot of money for a trainer. I'll skip it. And so I kinda trick myself into to working out a box I lift weights of so five six days a week. I do that. And, and then I'll go through my calendar in start checking emails about the third three and a half hours in and I don't handle my own calendar. So I'm not the you know the rule here at my company. I'm not allowed to touch my calendar. If I touch it I mess it up. So I have somebody that handles, all that bore me. So I look at what they've put in there. What the notes are for the day. And then we have a shift meeting at eight thirty. With all the department heads. We have a little, you know, thirty forty minute meeting, where they can come ask me any questions. We talk about anything. It saves me all the Dada minutes throughout the day. Yeah. So, you know somebody has an issue at two o'clock in the afternoon. I'm like, well tomorrow at eight thirty so cuts out the gotta minutes. They know that they have a standing time with some prepared. Now come ready. And so just about every day, we have at eight thirty meeting, unless I have something that conflict. So that's kinda my first I four hours, the for meditation to shift meeting, and we definitely will put a link to your books on the show notes today. But is there one book or a couple of books that you've read throughout your career for you thought, man that one book really impacted me at a young age? Is there a certain book you recommend to our listeners or handful of books? Yeah. So though, the one that really, really taught me systems and mindset in the kind of psychological warfare is a book called winning through intimidation by Robert ringer. Have you read that I have not read this book winning through intimidation by Robert ringer? Gets. Yeah. Get the old one. So it's printed in the fifties. They reprinted in redone, it. But getting all the one that cost, I don't know. It'll probably cost about one hundred bucks on Amazon us got into smell, like an old book, but that's the best version of it. So winning through intimidation, the like he, he goes through how he created a real estate empire. But every little thing mattered house lawyer handle that, you know, I learned one thing in that book, was that lawyers have their own conversations and I've been involved in lawsuits with clients. And I'm pretty good at helping people with their legal problems outweigh in managing attorneys. But the one thing that I learned is, you know, attorneys when they go back into chambers. They're like, hey, where's your client at oh, where's your client? And they're really just ringing up the Bill right where I want an attorney that walks into chambers is like my client isn't going to give up. We have, you know, we're coming up. You. It's offense offense offense. And so the books amazing winning through intimidation. Don't let the title scare you. I. I don't know that you listeners, they're going to are going to appreciate this one. But the other book that she's made a huge impression on me as maps of meaning by Jordan Peterson and like I've never highlighted a read a book so much, if you have you read that book, no, you're, you're, you're, you're what you're doing here is you're, you're blowing my mind, my friends. So I'm taking notes here, maps of meaning what is this book all about? Okay. So he you know, who Jordan Peterson is continued to educate me on this is like my mind expanding show here for me. I knew this would happen. Okay. While I'm going to read, I'm going to read, you the very first paragraph of maps of meaning and then you tell me what this means. Okay, ready? Here we go. Something. We cannot see protect us from something. We do not understand. So something we cannot be protected from something. We do not understand the thing we cannot team is coacher it is an interest, citing and internal manifestation, the thing we do not understand is the chaos that gave rise to poacher if the structure of culture is disrupted unwittingly chaos returns. We will do anything anything to defend against that return. That's deep. I know that's why I say, I hesitate to say 'cause it's eat. It's unbelievable. It's, it's an amazing book so maps of meaning Jordan Peterson. I think you have the best selling book last year twelve rules for life. He's, he's amazing. But that's his first book. I think he was a Harvard when he when he started it, it took him, like ten plus years to write it. It's very heady, but it's the kind of book you can pick up and just open up to any part, and get something out of it and culture so hard to develop its. But once you get there it's an unbelievable momentum. And I think people fail to realize how important that is indeed the office the office decor. The smell the sights. The sounds, the accountability, the scoreboards the trash talking all those things play into the creating of culture. And Chris, I think that your book about game if occasion is really great book for the listeners to pick up there. What I guess if somebody's out there debate, going, well, should I spend the twenty dollars to buy gamification for prophets playing for profits, or should I buy some hot dogs at a some regrettable hotdogs at a gas station this month? Why should everybody pick up a copy of gamification playing for profits? Well, I mean, first of all, you got to let yourself make some bad decisions. So maybe the hot dog is, is the right patch. The thing about gayness occasion is it's gonna be tools that worked not just in your business like the feedback I get all the time from that book is that they use it on their kids. They use it on their spouse. They use it another thing. But once you understand, how to get under people's skin and motivate them to your kids will do their chores. If you do it, right. You can get your spouse to, you know, do different things. So it's, it's more than just business. Really, once you understand it, Chris. I thank you so much for taking time out of your schedule to be here with us today. We're gonna put a link on the website on the show notes to all of your different to your podcast to your website to your books, and again, just, thank you for being here, my friend. Thank you so much. Thank. And now without further ado, right? What? Do you own a business Sasha? Do do you accept credit cards via the question? I would have for you is. When was the last time you compared credit card rates? I think it was on nineteen eighty seven was the last time you compared credit card fees, and rates to make sure that you're not paying too much in credit card fees. Well, my friend, we have found that over the years the average small business owner can save over twenty five hundred dollars per year, simply by comparing rates today. Well, what are the steps? Chinese to take start comparing your rates, and stop paying too much in credit card fees simply by going to thrive time show dot com forward slash credit card thrive time, show dot com. Forward slash credit card go there today and start saving money. Now, I'd go to Tom show dot com slash credit card, but just afraid of them computers. I don't I don't think we're going to catch on. I mean, this is a pretty soon, the internet is going to be all phased out. We thanking the more I go into prop time show dot com for slash credit cards, not doing and I also do find I enjoy spending more money on credit card fees. Now that I think about it, I just something beautiful about watching those fees, come on in and just keep paying them out there fishing on the lake making payments. Thing really hope I'm helping the credit card companies get a little bit richer. It's kind of ministry with how I look at it really.

Okay. But nobody saw common just a couple of years into the Rams being here. The Los Angeles Coliseum absolutely filled up for big Monday night football game in which one hundred and five total points scored. It's the first time anybody top fifty points in game and lost. So it was incredible. And the Rams came up big at the end of the game on defense on defense. They stopped Patrick Mahomes twice. The fact that Mahomes got the ball back twice in the last. Couple of minutes was really something. I didn't see coming. But I didn't see much of the game coming from last night. And the Rams got the big win. It was huge for the community here and the chiefs proved to me they're the team to beat in the AFC. I know the Steelers can score ton of points. The patriots going into their by week without gronk have been points. Challenged the team that won that game against the chiefs forty three forty my think of that team has to go to Kansas City and play a playoff game. I think that team despite Tom Brady playing in it loses and the Rams needed the win last night. Because the way that the saints looked this weekend. I'm sure the Rams would love to see the saints in their building rather than vice versa. And how lucky are we sports fans and NFL fans? Okay. Football fans because it looks to me right now is we're heading into thanksgiving weekend that the two championship games. We're going to see on championship weekend. Leading to the Super Bowl are going to feature young hot up and coming MVP caliber type quarterbacks and golf and Mahomes. Trying to take down all time goat veteran future. First ballot hall of fame quarterbacks. In either breeze for the saints or Big Ben and Tom Brady for the Steelers and patriots respectively. Is it possible to Shawn Watson throws his name in the mix shore is a possible. Philip rivers gets red hot then just put rivers into that category of Ben and Brady, but that's what the Ponente -ment. Sunday before Super Bowl Sunday is gonna look like as it looks like right now. Wow. And it would be an interesting scenario because what's coming out of last night. And what we're gonna talk about with Chris Collins worth when he calls in about fourteen minutes time and MAURICE Jones drew called the game for the Rams locally here. When he joins us in studio in our number two, and I will discuss this with John Harbaugh when the ravens head coach makes a rare nationally televised simulcast appearance, isn't usually do that very much, but it is a big week in the Harbaugh football family and John just put Lamar Jackson under center or in shotgun for the first time as a starter. And we saw how completely revamped. The ravens offense looked in just one week from flacco to Lamar Jackson. We'll talk about this with John Harbaugh later on what's coming out of this game. Last night is a lot of hand wringing about the state of defense in the NFL. And whether we just witnessed a milestone watershed moment, a passing of the torch from the way that we. We have consumed football in our generation, and I'm pushing fifty. The way that we have been watching football for years getting to this point. Are we now watching a completely totally revamped NFL were college style football. We just saw a team in the Philadelphia Eagles run pass option their way to a Super Bowl championship last year. And now, we're watching a five wide pinball machine. Video game type contest on Monday night football last night between two teams with tons of team speed and tons of weapons and to red hot young quarterbacks that are succeeding really quick in the NFL. Are we seeing a totally changed NFL which would be again, a fascinating development to see Mahomes versus Brady and Big Ben or Goth versus breeze. And the interesting thing is you've got veteran quarterbacks in breeze and veteran coach in read. Totally in a way. Changing what they've done before not changed. I mean is kind of played this style before. But tastes him hills has been added to the mix and two running backs that are matchup nightmares. And just the style of offense that Peyton is dialing up. He's adapted. Read his adapted is is Brady going to be able to will say at daft if he's got up win a game where it's fifty to fifty four to fifty one will they win. They did win forty three to forty. But is it possible always seeing a changing of the guard here because of the lack of the the defensive rules have been changed to benefit offensive players. And in the maim of player safety the hits over the middle are completely wiped out that we have seen. Are we seeing the lack of practice time? We're seeing more seven on seven football on eleven on eleven months Sundays and Monday nights. Now is this the change is something you like is it something you don't like. But what I tweeted out from the show account. I think is fact is this was the greatest game in the fantasy football era now for tugg early and Kareem hunt. No, no, I know that we'll Kareem hunt did score. But I, but my point is this is that in the era where points. Galore is the do jor. And we're settling down for nationally televised game where. Let's just say we'll be like ten twelve players are on fantasy teams like literally ninety to one hundred percent of the fantasy teams. And we're all saying down. And part of the reason why people are sitting down to watch. It is not because you know, hey, it's nine one versus nine in one. But they need eighty points for their fantasy team. And you believe you still had a chance wrecked. And if we opened a phone line and say call in with your fantasy stories people be Lau is done one hundred and twenty one the game or man I needed girly to do this or that this is what brings people under the tent now on the NFL in front of a television set. And some people may not like it. Because again, you're not three an outing somebody or six outing somebody, but even last night three defensive scores. And you could say is it because they're putting the ball up. And that's why Mahomes through it directly into the hands of equa Bonn or they're putting the ball up. Eventually you do it ninety times in a game. Aaron Donald is going to get home. In this day and age, what do you need to win football games you need team speed? You need a quarterback that can disseminate. And and assimilate. Then disseminate, and then you need pass rushers. So who's got that in the NFL today? Saints rams. The chiefs have pass rushers. Let me ask you this. Hold on. Let me just figure this out too. Because we're going to talk about this with Chris Collins worth a couple minutes bears. I would look like looking over the dashboard can't score. Like this though. They've got the ability to do it as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fifty fifty the bears have team speed all over the lot. And they and they do have they do have a quarterback that is beginning to get it and a coach from the Andy Reid world. Look at this put it this way in in. And I'll be talking about this at next year's combine at next year's draft. This is going to be the conversation. We're front loading the conversation of January through April. Everybody's gonna want their McVeigh or they're gonna want their Goff. They're gonna want their Trubisky. They're gonna want their Nagy. I wanna see if I'm building for the future. I wanna see a quarterback that can pull the trigger. I want to see a quarterback who can get out of the pocket and pull the trigger. I wanna see a bunch of guys with tons of speed that you cannot cover coming out of the backfield or out wide if ominous scheme my way towards making you confused on defense, and I'm wanna see on defense somebody who's gonna go put there. Fingers in the dirt and hunt because nobody's going to be able to cover any more based on the team speed and the rules on defense right now. And that's twenty first century. And that's my question to you. Do you think this style of play will carry over into the playoffs? Because if you remember in two thousand seven patriots giants played an amazing game. Just like this thirty eight thirty five and the Super Bowl changed in seventeen thirteen. I guess we'll have to tune in to find out won't we we'll ask this question of Chris Collins worth and you eight four four zero four rich, July, it did you see that? You just thought, you know, maybe I wanted to see more conventional defence, meaning get outta here with added balls down and three and outs. Six and outs. Last night was amazing man, amazing while mobile said it was the greatest regular season game of all time of the fantasy football era. I will say that. Because again, there's so many. Casual fans that are turning into the stuff because they had tyreek hill they did have Brandin cooks. They had Robert woods. Just gambling perspective Kareem on over closed at sixty four the highest over ever and beat it by forty one points. The almost added halftime. What a night MAURICE Jones drew John Harbaugh and Chris Collins worth lots to chew on lots to chew on. And Jack mcbrayer is in studio. Our number three, our friend from thirty rock and Ralph breaks the internet. That's the way we're rolling in you at eight four four two four ritual have time to take your calls as well. Michigan. Ohio State got a little bit more interesting because somebody guaranteed victory. The Yankees are listening to me least for the moment. The big baseball trade yesterday the little bit underneath the radar so much to discuss in that big clippers win lost amongst the Rams Monday night pinball machine against the chiefs.

The game sealing interception to the last two drives for the chiefs ended in interceptions. Interestingly enough, Marcus Peters was the one that was the biggest one and he took his helmet off one of the non calls from the crew last night. And there was a big one because if they did bang them if they did hit him for the fifteen yards right there than one would think Johnny Hecker who hit the proverbial Pat McAfee piss missile all the way down to the one yard line from which tyreek hill did return the final punt of the game. And then backed up the chiefs a whole that they eventually is you know, couldn't dig out of that leading that interception. Fifteen yards further back than Hecker might not have been able to flip the field like that. But there are so many instances like that. I thought the refereeing last night was way too tight. It was absolutely on fortunate. If we do see this game run back in the Super Bowl. I wanna see the officials. Take themselves out of the game. I mean, it was funny. It was an all star crew. I know that and they they normally do that for the playoff, right? And and I guess it doesn't work in the regular season. I thought some of the calls they made last night were absolutely head scratchers that final helmet to helmet that aided the chiefs on their their go ahead. Final drive, right. There was a a helmet to helmet because the chiefs player connected helmets with the Rams player to get any helmet to helmet any personal foul penalty. I've said it before saying and make it reviewable. Those fifteen yards are too big. They result in first downs as we know most of the time they keep teams on the field when the defense is taking them off it, and they are absolutely in replay something that should be available to take out the understandable stance of an official to err on the side of player safety in those moments. But men were some penalties last night that I was particularly disappointed including the Tyree kills Joe. You know flash that deuces he's done it before. Does he get flagged for it every time? I don't think I don't think so either. Thanks, so. Eight four four two zero four riches the number to our poll. Question is brought to you. My lottery dream home.

New episodes of my lottery dream home, air Fridays ninety six Pacific on H G TV. What do you have over there? Chris. Okay. So we saw last night's game. Obviously crazy fifty four fifty one. We've seen the Saint score forty five plus three games in a row. Unbelievable. Offenses between those three teams which offense. Would you most want to have chiefs Rams saints? Remember last that of Chris Collins worth when he joins us. And he's joining us right now Sunday night football analyst, one of the best in the business and his football life premiers Friday on NFL network. Great to have Chris Collins worth. How are you? Chris. What did you think last night? It was just fun. I love it. When football's spawned I. And I've got to say this whole year has been pretty fun. They we've seen the scoring goes through the roof and never more obvious than what it was last year. I think the league is done a great job this year of not over reacting to some of the the the social debate that happened in the United States, especially during this political season and political time, and we've really focused on the game flip ball in a way that I I don't think happened in a number of years. And so I for me, I I don't know if everybody feels that way. But I feel like the game has really been focused on the field this year, and it's just been fun. It's been high scoring. It's great personalities. Great young quarterbacks been great. So what do you take out of it from last night? What can be portable for us to focus on from thanksgiving here on out from these two teams? That are at the top of their conferences. I mean, it looks like those big three or are still the big three. Right. I think you have to throw the saints in there as well. And then there's a couple of given. I mean, we know what's what still to come. Right. I mean, the patriots are still going to make their run, and they look bad, but Tennessee, and they're, you know, people are calling me wanting to say is this really the real Ed has comes Tom Brady. And I'm like you're not been asked that question for last six years every time they have a bad game. So, you know, unless I really see it Pittsburgh, I think still obviously capable of making a run. Houston is kind of intimidating looking team to me right now. As far as a team that could be somewhere in the surprise. But I also think that we may see defense rear its ugly head ear before. No. I mean, don't you feel like Chicago last night? I'm watching Dallas has a hell of a defense. Minnesota's defense can kick it into gear. You know, you can you can kinda just go Houston should be able to Tennessee some somewhere along the line. You know, we're going to get the the the the waking dead, and and there's gonna, you know, come to life, and and all that kind of stuff before we're all said, Chris Collins here in the Honda insider report, and it's interesting. You mentioned the bears obviously, you saw them in Chicago with a huge win over the Vikings on Sunday night football to me while we're having this conversation about you say defense rearing its its head. Obviously, you've got you've got Khalil Mack. And you know, the rest of that defense to me though, the offense seeing the way that that is being built there when we seal we saw last night. And you're you know, it's a copycat league. It seems to me that that's the style that's going to be sustainable for the next ten years as opposed to what we saw over the last ten years is team speed guys spread out all over the lot young coach dialing it up for a young quarterback. Who's on his first contracts? You can pay the Khalil Mack to rush the passer. I'm wondering what you think Chris exactly that you nailed it. And I think there's a couple of other things too one. You can't hit anybody anymore. You know, which I think quarterbacks that probably wouldn't by nature be brave. That are a lot braver standing in the pocket anymore. A little braver running the football. Then what they've been. I've seen wide receivers who I don't think would have been going over the middle and tight ends going over the middle back in the day when you could hit them right underneath the chin and see their helmet, go flying off. And you know, getting set his new set of stitches about every other game. The way it was at one time in the National Football League. So they're throwing a lot of those sort of middle Reid jumped ball kind of things because. Yeah, you can hit me in the back. I don't bother me. I you know, I've got I've got a whole set of ribcage back there. That's that's not gonna hurt too bad like, and so I think that plays that back in the day. We would have gone back to the quarterback and gone through that again, I'm a beat your ass. Thing. And I don't think that it's it's that way anymore. I think guys are getting hit, but not in the intimidating fashion that takes away some of those crossing routes and some of those slants and some of those pose than middle reads, and all those crazy kind of thing. So I it's a little different game. It's a little more offense. And this running quarterback thing is real. I I mean, you know, when that that that outside linebacker defensive ends in this league. Now, go flying down on those inside and outside zone. Plays away problem. You have to play the bootlegs with these kids with the way that they can run. And it's it's more like break basketball. It's kind of fun to watch. I, you know, I I'm enjoying it. It is fun. It is fun Chris especially since again like I like we've just been talking about here in Los Angeles. He got the youngest coach and the league. In McVeigh with you know, Jared Goff who's playing like a lion right now and looks like Bambi, right? And then you've got Sean Payton and drew Brees who've been attached to the hip for a dozen years. But now playing exactly this type of offense that we're looking like without the running ability, and then an old school guy like Andy Reid who is just I guess taking it up a notch from the west coast offense with his young quarterback. That's our poll question today's which offense would you if you had to choose one? Would you put your marker down on right now? It's a great question. And I don't know, you know, McVeigh is the is the young gun, and he's going to have a long shelf life and goodness. Only knows how good he's gonna get. 'cause he's so good right now. I mean, what he did turn that that operation around. And now with receivers getting hurt, and it just doesn't seem to matter. You know? I don't think they're protection was great last night. And you know, golfers, you know, make a mistake or two, but they just keep on chugging along with all that stuff. But I think that at the end of the day, I think you have a choice to make you know, I think golf is is a little bit of the do everything. And with McVeigh definitely have Mahomes, who is I think the most athletic of that group that you just mentioned these and I put your Bisky a little bit in that group as well. Although I don't think he throws it as well. Is Mahomes does but there's something lurking in the back of my mind about drew Brees. We we had a graphic of the other day. And it's it I don't know why I should've known as I vote on them VP every year. But when I read that that he had. Won the MVP crazy. You gotta be kidding me. I mean, here's the guy that's been over five thousand yards. What five times something like that? I think more than all the rest of the history of quarterbacks combine he's been over five thousand yards. He's a Super Bowl winner. And I think he's just kinda ganged when other people have gained when it came to the MVP, you know, somebody you've been had better years, and maybe Mahomes is the one that knocks them out or early or whoever it may be this year. But there's something about what's going on in New Orleans right now and their ability to create offense with those two running backs and Michael Thomas, obviously. But and when you look at the defense's involved, and I think the potential is there in New Orleans for that to be maybe just a notch of ball. What's happening right now and LA Kansas City. But who knows it's it's I always say season doesn't. Even start. So we get the thanks giving. So happy football the Dino, exactly. And you know, normally when somebody gets a lifetime achievement award for you know, when they didn't have won an Oscar yet or they do finally win their Oscar, I guess cross streams here sports in pop culture. It's for a movie that might not be their best ever. But it was definitely enough. Good enough for that year. This could be breezes best you're ever though. I mean what he's doing is absurd. And in terms of the offense with Sean Payton, they've thrown tastes inhale in this mix too. So it's it's not just the Peyton breeze offense of previous years. He's adding what everybody else is doing with totally different quarterback. It is something else with Kamera and and Ingram, and I've never I mean again your football lives coming up. So you you know, what it's like run around. You know, what it's like running out since the champion in championship seasons. Chris Collins worth I mean, what this kid Michael Thomas is doing is absurd. He could be having the best wide receiver you're ever. And I understand what I'm talking about. With other people too. Yeah. And and I think that's the concern with them is, you know, can some of those younger receivers, you know, have an impact. But as long as they don't lose Ingram. And kamera. You know, I think that that one two combination is is really something. But I I'm with you. I love what they're doing tastes them. Hell mass joker can fly. He can throw the football. Bomb in the game. We did against against the Vikings. But I think that it forces you to practice other stuff. I mean, I remember my son played for Notre Dame. And they used to go in and play navy or army or whatever. And you know, they'd be on a roll stopping offenses and playing well, then all of a sudden here comes the triple option. And it's like all right. I need you guys. Forget everything you know about playing defense. Because now we gotta do this. Right. And so now you end up in the same situation when when you're playing the saints or you're playing Mahomes, or you're playing Trubisky, you know, that backside run support just can't be there because they have to settle in in play the quarterback, and it makes and then you had the RPO's on it. I talked you know, we talked to every defensive coordinator every week, and they're now to the point where they go we can't cover all this time. We just can't you know? I if they get the reads, all right? We cannot we literally cannot cover. We cannot cover the inside or outside moving to the right without any support from our backside. Linebacker we can't cover the possibility of the quarterback holding onto it and running the football. And we certainly can't cover the wide receiver running us land behind our linebacker. If he steps up to play the quarterback or the inside Joan. So if they really get this offense, right? We can't cover it. And so they have to sort of hope that they're gonna make a mistake somewhere along the way and through pressure or blitzing or whatever that they force them into some bad bad plays a little bit. Like what the Rams the last night? Chris Collins with few more minutes left here in the Honda. Insider report you've got Packers Vikings this Sunday night. Chris in the sense that that I'm seeing out there on the Twitter verse as well as just general conversation is. That Aaron Rodgers seen a Monday night game like this or what the saints looked like against the eagles. And that offense is in the house, and he is like John cusak holding up. The the the boombox begging for that offense to come out of the house for him. What do you think he is going through right now as you get set for big must have for the Packers on Sunday night on that offense? Yeah, we're down to that point of the year. Which I it's funny when you call games for a long period of time you start understand, you know, in a way, I I'm happy almost happier. Excuse me to be calling the the Packers and Vikings then to the team sitting at the very top because they're already in the playoffs. These guys are playing for their lives on Sunday night. I mean, they really are in particular the Green Bay Packers at this point. And I, but I do think there's a little hope there. I think that Aaron Jones. Excuse me is a guy that could be a real difference maker coming down the. And I don't think they've used him. Well, enough yet when they find a way to flip him the ball either on screen or check down or whatever the case may be he really he creates them real offense. So that could he be there Alvin Kamara he might be he might be they they haven't developed into that point yet. But they have devante atoms whose fantastic Ecorse. Now looks like they're gonna lose Jimi grandpa a little while this robber Tanya. We had a fifty yarder. He can run Marc Klaas Valdez Fanling, you know, and and when aim is Saint Brown too. I hope I never have to say on the same. Sitting there and they're talented in. But I think if you said what could be the difference on this football team coming down the stretch and is much Aaron Rodgers wants to win every game by himself, and he should because he's the best player or one of the best players all the ball if they can establish that running game a little bit more and use Aaron Jones a little bit more in the passing game. I still think this team has the ability to go on a rot. I the other day. I said, and I'll repeat it here to Aaron Jones. Looks like Kareem hunt to me looks a little bit claim hunt like to me, Chris. Yeah. And he's and he's he's silky too. You know, he's as can we in and out he can get when he gets the ball in space. Now, it's not always this is a tough team to run the football against all the bears that a pretty good job against the Vikings. Sure did. But but I do think that that finding ways to get her in Jones incorporated in some short quick passing. Game and running the ball is is what they need to do. Okay. Before. I let you go. Chris the your football life Friday eighties torn- time, if you seen it yet or you're just gonna today. I wife is going to kill me because I promised dried sit around, but I just I just couldn't wait anymore at that. And you know, it was my God. It's so it's so honest, and it's so brutal brutally honest, and if you occasionally kinda cringe if you like what what made you like what Chris me a little hint little tease for flooding. It takes you back to losing Super Bowl that takes you back to the people Philadelphia or so bad after my call Super Bowl question, those two touchdowns and the officials called all that kind of stuff. So anyway, I it just kinda. And then they show your kids say a nice stuff about you. And makes you wanna cry and you know, or and then you feel like oh, God, they're doing a flip ball life is how old. I wait a minute. Now used to be the kid among the announcers and now like his older veteran and I didn't even play for the Dallas Cowboys. So. Strain. Thank now. But it was it was fun. It was funny James winer up on saying his last name, right. Is so talented. Oh my God. He likes it gets inside your soul, and and I always loved the football life series. And so is an easy. Yes. For me when they they asked me to do it. And but it does it. It is not a superficial look at what I do. Or what I've done I it digs in a little bit. But I appreciate as the guy who sides live being honest over the years, and they Ron about me. Well, you now are awesome manage, you know, Kristen I appreciate the time. A great thanksgiving. I know that the studio crews doing the Thursday night NBC thanksgiving night game.

H. I. O. Chris how you doing today Undoing well considering the situation is going on through the worldly how are you? I'm hanging in there Trying to make the best of this corona virus quarantine and. It's given me a chance to get some guests interviews. And on this podcast. It's been a while since I had those. But thank you for taking the time today and I'm really looking forward to this interview. Well I do some pre sheets. You think it up being asked him to be on with you so Chris let's begin. Why are you originally from? Well let's see. I was born in Indiana in Indianapolis Indiana and Lived here for maybe about eighteen months in Indianapolis. My family moved onto Ohio up in the cold water salina area and then when I was just before I was four years old we moved into Dayton Ohio into an area which was known as Wayne Township than eventually became huber heights and grew up there From kindergarten all the way through my senior year at high school. So I planted roots here in the Dayton area under early age. Very cool so you know area like the back of your hand. I would like to think so. I've been I've been here a long time. Yes so when. Did you know that broadcasting was something you wanted to be a part of? You know. I thought about that when you've mentioned at the other day about a possible question that we'd be talking about and you know I really didn't think about it much of a young age Even when I got into high school because like many people now. You don't have a dream that I wanted to be a professional baseball player. You know. I love playing sports. I grew up every sport. We played in our community. We have a lot of growing up where I lived in. We would play every sport every season. We would be outside just about every day. You know enjoying the competition you know. Sometimes it got a little heated as you well know if you grew up around much dudes and we have a great time. You know at the time I thought I'm going to work hard to become a player being once but then I realized settled in that you know. I didn't have the talents. You know to put me up the higher level you know I started thinking about you know you know. Maybe I'd like to broadcast because I would like to watch a water gains. I listened to games on the radio. I think there was a time for years. I did Miss Listening just Cincinnati reds baseball and when they went off the air I would tune into the lake games. Maybe in Saint Louis with candle wax in Saint Louis and listen to the car dole some of the Detroit Tiger Games so I just became somebody who really loves sports especially baseball and then eventually kicked in like I said I thought okay going to get broadcast jess now. You mentioned listening. Some Games on the radio are any broadcasters that you really looked up to and learned a lot from the ones that I heard a lot of you know obviously when when I first started listening to reds games and I was very young at the time There was somebody by the name of Jim. Mcintyre he worked with Joe Nuxhall and then right after him came a young man named Al Michaels and Al Michaels was in Cincinnati for about three years at the beginning of the big red machine and then came Marty Brennaman and we we know what Martin was able to do in Cincinnati and all the great things. So you know. I've been very privileged just like everybody else who was a reds fan to be able to hear some of the best broadcasters you know the around in baseball in addition to like. I said tuned into Saint. Louis you had Jack Buck and and And show Mike Shannon. You had of course Ernie Harwell in Detroit For the Tigers. So you know I was very blessed to be able to hear you know some of the best bar castres in baseball history with this. Start to your career. What was your first broadcasting job? Well my first job. I started in a small station W. K. T. N. in Canton Ohio and people are saying Canton. Isn't that where they football hall of? Fame IS NOT CANTON. It was Kenton. It's just about thirty miles to the east of Lima and just north of Dell founded in Hardin County and I was able to begin their as a nighttime jockey and at the time they needed somebody to call the county Football Games as well as the basketball games so the year I was there I was able to have the opportunity to gain a lot of experience. by calling those games and I was really excited for that opportunity in fact You Know Li. I don't know if you're aware but back at that time Those were moneymakers for the small market radio stations and I mean really small. I mean we were right. The heart of Soybean the in pig farmers up in the air pardon county and what they would do is They would have the Kenton Games on live and then right after that would be the county teams and I did the county game. So what would happen is I would go to the site. Call the game in the first half. That would be on a cassette all right and somebody would come back normally a salesperson with picked up at halftime with the first half. Bring it back to the radio station. They would start airing the first half of that county game immediately after the Kenton High School game so as I was driving back in the county games I would be able to hear the first half of my game and then of course get back to the station and provide the second cassette for the second half the remainder of the gate love small town radio stations. I wish there was boredom. Around this area. There's one in Greenville and you're absolutely right. There's there's nothing better you get to hear your county teams on radio. It's just it's it is it is and you got to be around the fans and I was. I tell you I was blessed Lee because at first year Kenton didn't make it very far in the tournament In basketball there was a team a small school in southwestern hardly county upper site valley the rams that was their nickname they were able to Move through the State Championships in get all the way to the regional final. That was the first year opportunity to call sports and I was so excited. Small community up there. You know people really. I think everybody had an opportunity to go tim. That game was at Bowling Green State. University up there and They took on Kaleida and the regional championship game with an opportunity to move on to Saint John's arena in Columbus in play in the State Championship. They came up short. It was three overtimes before they ended up. Losing to collide. It and I was told that game was live. We weren't at the time we were not Because of the situation was no longer in the tournament in a different division. We relied and I was told people even back in Canton in the K. Mart. At the time would come up and LISTEN TO THE GAME. You know on the radios that were trying to sell the stereos you know. They're on the floor in the Canton Kmart and they were excited and got caught up into that game. You know it was really thrilling to find out afterwards and it was a great game and it was the first time you know I was. I will only broadcast it for about two or three months when I had the opportunity to call that game with an opportunity to go to the State Championship. You know. That's that's something that be in my mind forever that first opportunity and all the excitement of the community getting involved backing their team to an opportunity to win the State Championship. It's just amazing. How much radio means to communities and what it can mean to. You know other communities like that. It's that's a really cool story. You know it. Is You know at the time. I don't think I really appreciate it. You know it's really young at the time and I think myself I thought. Wow this is great. I'm caught up in it. I never really thought it was all about me and then something. I've always told myself it's never about you in somebody who been broadcasting who has couple of mentors of the years told me never make an about yourself in the event you know year there to be a part of that and try to present that the people especially on radio to be able to paint a picture and give them The feeling that they are there know that was always the biggest challenge in something. I've always tried to do even to this day. So starting off in Canton Ohio. How did you wind up back in with radio? Well League at the time if you talked to anybody who have been in this business for a while. I've been blessed to be here for a long time You moved around to a lot of little stations is in canton for a year. Then I moved to fountain not very far away and then from there. I was out of broadcasting for probably about two months and then I got a job in Chile coffee and while I was there. I got married and I I was in chillicothe for just a few months because I was working part. Time it w. b. e. x. and Chile coffee and I've heard of a full time position in Fayetteville North Carolina so My my my wife and I. We just been married for just a few weeks. We loaded the truck and Van and moved down to Fayetteville and I worked at a station in the news. Department and Had the opportunity to do some sports features but didn't do any sports broadcasting so while. I was there for about a year and a half of the guy who was a salesperson was called in games for That Terry Sanford bulldogs in say it will North Carolina and he let me work with him on a few games before I left and came back to Dayton and then just to summarize quickly came back to Dayton worked at W. W. D. A. O. In the news department got out of the radio business again and then went back to North Carolina to the same station in some different capacities. Lived there until nineteen eighty seven. And then eventually I made my way back to Dayton and worked at a few stations Prime early mixed one zero seven seven or I was for fifteen years Before I came over to whol now for spars broadcasting rights state I started broadcasting. Gangs back in nineteen ninety-seven and just completed by twenty-third you would that. Would that been the first year of Schilling or is that Jim Brown taken over for row on the hill is that was the first year for Ed Schilling and it's interesting because A year to about a year before that. Time Warner Cable Here in Dayton was doing some of the Games and I had an opportunity to Be the color announcer the analyst along with Tom Michaels on some of the women's Rights State Games and There was one game where he was unable to attend. So I was able to do the play by play and The individual who was set up to be the endless for me did not show up. And then what happened was at halftime. I ran into former right state athletic director Mike Husak and he talked with me. The first time I've ever met him and he decided he came over and he was The analyst with me well A few weeks you know about a month or so went on. And then they made the changes. They hired Schilling. I got a call from the athletic office. I worked with Bob Nasi Former S. Id and he asked. If I was interested you know in the doing the radio so I provided a tape of the game and you elite have any recommendations for anybody always keep your work because I did have a whole lot. Okay at the time you know to be able to provide to them so what I had was. I had an old reel to reel that off onto a cassette to give them of that game that I called that regional championship game at Bowling Green between the Upper Siona valley and Kaleida so they listened to that they talked to me. They had a little idea of my background and They chose me to be the radio Voice of Wright state radio and to this day. I'm very thankful. Not only deduct cusak Bob dos but also Bob Grant for allowing me to do that. Like you mentioned you've been there for quite a long time and there's been lots of ups and downs and definitely lava slightly for right state basketball. Take me through the first full year of being the radio. Play by play man for W Yuli I. I thought about that a few times and I was so excited when I got this opportunity because I thought you know something one of my goals to be able to achieve something like this and to get that opportunity I it was just like kids looking at a candy store and I think overprepared that first year for every game. I spent so much time because you know I really cared about getting better. You know and I look back on it and I think I should have appreciated a lot more because I get just somebody who continues to want to just do better you know and And get feedback from people. But I think I need as years went on. I learned to appreciate things a lot more. But it's interesting. You say that because the first game that rights they played was a road game at Central Michigan and I got the first time was able to get on a bus individual in college team. You know to be able to be with him. I traveled with the team and we went up all the way. It's a long bus ride up to central Michigan. It's seems like forever to get the Mount Pleasant Michigan so I had that experience you know and then get ready for the game and and then it was. Great was the fact that team won. You know they were able to win a road. Game and key on Brooks is a part of that team that Burton and the team. I thought played extremely well. We drove we drove back. After the game we ran into a little bit of a snowstorm throughout Michigan and northern Ohio. You know but nobody cared you know. The the music was blaring. Two guys. Were having a great time and it's something I had never really experienced before and I thought. Hey It's supposed to be this way all the time but you know as the season progressed in the next few years progressed It it just didn't work out that way. You know a team had really struck you know at times and there was a lot of struggles a lot of downs. There have been a lot of ups over the twenty three years. And you know I'd like to remember you know all of the good times and you know. Forget the bad that you can't because I think that's part of what makes you you and the experience in which you had and it makes me appreciate you know the things that have gone well so much because of those times when things didn't go that well from one thousand nine hundred ninety seven until the end of the what turned out to be the end of the regular season in two thousand twenty. What's changed at right? Stay from from the coaches the players. Anything that you can acknowledge what's changed since then. No you're a big sports fan. You know you've got around with a lot you know. And the and what you're experiencing now is nothing like it. Was You know when I started? I mean let's face it you know. The money has really changed the landscape Nc Aa Division. One sports you know especially The recruiting wars. You know television. You know how much impact this had on these teams coaches. You know they talk right now. You hear that term coaching carousel. You know for the last five or ten years where you know coaches basically are looking for the best job and moving on you know you look for loyalty you know from players in the and also from the coaches but you still see that in like you did before when I started you can start seeing. That was just the beginning. You know some of the changes you would see in NCWA sports and you know there are a lot of changes. Continue to be a lot of changes you know but I'm just very appreciative for the opportunity to do it. You know and when you think about it with US Corona virus situation right now. I think we're all in a situation where we just don't know what's going to happen next. I mean they're talking about college football. You know maybe playing in the spring in are we going to? Have you know football in the fall? We're going to have basketball later on this year. You know when. Are we going to be able to gather together as a group sit next to each other? Know it's changed the what we it changed our lives you know as I think. We're realizing right now. Sports is Great. You know there's no question about it because it emphasizes teamwork you know it emphasizes you know discipline. You know self-disciplined working as a team you know but it gets to the point where you know what's more important in life you know that you know treating others well and being respectful to others you know so. It's me very interesting where we had here down the in terms of sports both professionally and also at the amateur level. One thing I have to say that I've witnessed changes the Internet and how we absorbed sports. I mean radio's been there for us but now you can get games on. Espn plus with a subscription. Espn three. That got a cable subscription. What's your take on that? I think it's great you know. I think it's absolutely fantastic You know it gives an opportunity for the student athletes. You know for their families you know you look at it that way. Their families and their friends. I mean for instance you take got tanner hold it Who is a freshman year at Wright state this past year you know he comes from a small town? Wheelers broke you. Know coincidentally the same town as Drew Burlington. A former right state raider. You know that's not a very large area. But there was an opportunity for his school to come up and visit him. And not just as school but You know his friends and family and the community members in Wheeler's Burke can do a game past year and there was a large turnout you know when I was able to talk to a few of them and they said. Hey Love Watch the Games on. Espn plus get a chance to see. You know Somebody WHO's us? He's really done something for himself and coming from that small community in it gets back again. Leader what we talked about earlier about. You know you go back to nineteen seventy nine eighty. When I was up in Canton for my first job. How community just rallies around you know their team and and their sports heroes in their town and I think that's been something that's been great Four College basketball specifically is the fact that these kids get to be on you know. Espn plus and all the different networks. And they have an opportunity as far as radio. Also you know the the follow the teams at times if if the game is blacked out in a certain area you know. They get an to listen to their The guys that they know the guys that they looked up to so I think it's been a great thing you're right. I'm glad you brought that up because you know even when I started there was television and there were some cable. But you know nothing. They don't have the outlets Then nothing like they do now. I mean back then you know W H had the Dayton Flyer Games. Tv and I think that time wd TNN had bright state games and Omar Williams was still there but nowadays local TV. And if you're in the area great if not. But now you don't have to be locked in the Dayton area to catch right state games you can be all around the world and still there's right state and your palm. You're absolutely right. I think that is greatly because the local TV stations. Now it's difficult for them to be able to carry Local Games and one of those reasons is the fact that they are tied in with their networks For instance you mentioned W. H. I. O. T. V. Channel Seven with CBS wd tnn is with NBC I think twenty two with. Abc and Fox forty-five well. They are pretty much bound to their networks security. Their prime time shows are right because These networks You know they go out. And they sell these shows and they say we're on so many stations around the country so they have a lot of leverage so it's very difficult for some of these local stations to be able to break away and you know spend the money especially. It's very cost a lot of money to be able to broadcast a basketball game on television To be able to carry some of these games so I think it's great That the through the technology now that we've learned to be able to like for instance at Wright state and most of us all all the schools in the Horizon League they produce their own video streaming of all of their games and home which then go out you know over the communication lines to ESPN plus. They're able to put out over their networks like you say subscription or just on. Espn three is absolutely through a free you know for the free download. Espn so you know. I think it's great now that we've got left point because These guys were card. They deserve the exposure. Now you call right state basketball that a well known fact around here but you also broadcasts some right. State Baseball Games. Unfortunately the twenty twenty season. We only have one home game. But tell me a little bit about your experience calling Raider Baseball. Well Bob Dos Again I brought it back guy who has been you know really great with me. He retired within the last year sports information director and Associate Athletic Director. Guy State. You know these said. Hey we do some games. And that's when they run cable and then also now it's morphed over into ESPN plus Few Games throughout the year. Would you be interested in? Of course I told you earlier you know. Baseball is a real love of mine so having that Opportunity I was very thankful for it. And it's been great. I mean you look at the history with right state baseball. You know you go back in time. What Ron Dish? Which is done of course The stadiums named after Ron. He put a lot into that and helped push the programs up. You know to get the right start. Iran has just been terrific. I mean we all know about his past and you know he's been able to do with right state baseball. But you know any. Pass the torch to Rob Cooper and then Greg Love Lady who came in with coach Cooper and you can just see with this program continues to rise and you know when I had opportunity you asked me earlier about At least before we started this podcast you know some of the players and the coaches and staff that you really look up to. And he wasn't here very long but as a player You got to know you got to see what type of a leader That Jeff Mercer would be and what he transferred here to right state from day a chance to know him. We were doing the games and you could just tell that this guy was. He was something special. All right maybe not moving onto major league baseball because because there's leadership skills and knowledge of the game in the way that he was a leader among you know players and his teammates and how they looked up to him so it's no surprise to me that you know he moved onto Indiana. You know that's his. That's his home. That's home state yet. That opportunity you know. I think everybody wished him well and he'll continue to do well at the Anna and of course I'm so guard. Who's now the head coach at Wright State? So they've had a great line of coaches here The culture is just terrific. I mean these are guys they go out. They developed players and get them to believe that they can win at the highest level. And it's just great to be a part of that and to see that you look at every yearly now they have the opportunities. They have the The first pitch banquet. That was started by coach. Rob Cooper forces now ten state REGLA ladies down. That's central Florida right now. Is it continued onto coach? Mercer now coach so guard you know to see the reaction of the alumni who come back and how much pride that. They have the program that they've been a part of you know over the years that started back in the seventies that even started with a guy who does the Games when the NFL dimension. Bob Rhody he was all American in basketball and baseball at Wright state. You know just to see the pride that all of these guys have you know of the program where it has gotten to this point you know. That's absolutely fantastic. And a testament to them in all of those involved. You kind of took my next question. Sorry about that. It's okay. That's fine basketball baseball. Who have been some more of your favorite staff members coaches players you got to interact with over the years because there. There's a lot of people since one thousand nine hundred seven. I'll leave and you put me on the spot. You're right there have been a whole lot you know and I can't I can honestly say I don't think there has been anybody you know who is has been like? I'm glad he's gone. That's never ever happened. You know the student athletes in the coaches to some extent you know. They have aspirations and you know they have moved on. You know. You're not buddy buddy or anything like that but everybody has been so gracious with big anytime. I asked him for an interview They're they're you know they're able to do that. And I think a lot of it has to do with the staff leadership here lately. You know with Bob Grant. You know he's been terrific you know. I think it's been written a Tom. Archdeacon story on him and how he talks about family. You know in the type coaches you know that he's able to hire and have in here at Wright state you know. I think that says a lot so you know just being a part of that and having the opportunity to to be around a lot of great people you know I really cherish that you know in a lot of the student athletes. You know some of the names to you know. Stick out to me like I said. I don't WanNa leave anybody out because you can to be talking to you for the next hour Half you know maybe I would. I would miss somebody because you know I mean I look at some of the basketball players that have been here. I WANNA got here with Kion rooks mention. You know sad burton. You know guys didn't play that much guys like Steve Yego Ryan. Gross you know. A Brandon card was a freshman before he transferred out to Bowling Green. You know through the years you know guys That I said have been great. You know to be around you know I mean. I think a guys like the family you know with with Matt in Allen you know getting to know their family of course Mark who was who was a tremendous player at Wright state over the years. And you know his wife Laura and the entire family have been terrific They're all about right state. No it's been great to be around them for so many years. And you know I just go through all of these guys Bernard Holland Convention Kion Brooks Does Shawn Watson Yeah drew Burlington. you just keep going and I can tell you about every single one of them. How great they have been up. You know through this year's team also you know a guy like loud and love here. We've got an opportunity with coach Nike Who is great about allowing his student athletes to come onto his coaches shows during season where we get an opportunity myself in Jim Brown To Talk to these student athletes and it gets to know them. A Little Bit. Better gives them an opportunity to get behind the microphone. You know and see what it's like you know and every single one of them just been fantastic you know. I've appreciated the opportunity to talk with you. Know Liam's leaving all these guys out of my head. I'm just thinking about every single one of them. I don't WanNa forget about the coaches either. You know with that. Schilling was very gracious with me. Paul Cardi who to this day I still communicate with and of course Brad round AL terrific last year. Let me tell you about Brad Brownell when Wright state was able to go to the nit play Clemson just before the game you know how the coaches go across and shake each other's hands you know before they start the game he. He made the effort to jog across the floor. Littlejohn Coliseum Clemson income over and shake my hand as well as Jim Brown before the game you know and spend just a few moments with us. I thought that was a very classy. Act Brad Brownell. And how much respect he had you know for the right state program terrific billy dominant outstanding to the stick. Still call him a friend and right state is very blessed to have a guy like Scott. Nagy leading this program into the future drew Burlington. You mentioned a couple times. He's now Dr around here. That's what I understand. Yeah drew got drew. Drew was a Pre. Med Biology Major. I believe it was when he was here right state and then he moved on to med school. I believe you went to I can't I'd have to talk with him again about that but I know he was at Loyola loyal of medical school and he does his residency up there and now he's involved with the DOT com check with Cincinnati reds with the with his beacon orthopaedics. And you know I think everybody knows Rights Day. Basketball did around. Right state is so proud to see ghetto. You know where drew an all the hard work that he has had to put in over the years and Debbie where he is right now? I think it's a great testament to To drouin what was able to accomplish. That's one of my favorite stories. I've seen about right state. Alums like Hey. I remember covering it. That's great you gotta remember. Drew was actually recruited by at Schilling and Ed moved on and call in Cardi came in basically a rear You know he came in Drew is here and He played mostly Paul and his final year. Obviously was Brad Brownell. First Year your rights state and that's when they won that championship and beat that memorable game at rights you know against the Butler bulldogs back in In her Marcha two thousand and seven and drew was an instrumental part of that team throughout the year. They got off to a slow start late. You know you have new coach and you have these players that have been here for a little while and had to adjust you know to a different coach and to see what they did. At the end of the season there was a great run through the January. All the way up You know all the way through The championship game here at the center before they won a beat Butler then moved onto the NCAA tournament for the first time since nineteen ninety-three that was eighteen to that was a lot of fun to cover. I mean bracket busters. I think that was the year. That cal state Fullerton came in. They were really good at the time at speaking through Burleson. Also Sean would. He was recruited by Schilling to one. He He was actually recruited By Paul Party along with Brian Brian. Donna her They were both working on Desha interesting story behind him. I don't think a lot of people know is that he He nearly committed to Cleveland. State CLEVELAND. State was really close on getting to Sean would But I don't know the to- particulars about it but Through the hard work of Brian Donna her as well. What are the assistance of Paul being? Cardi they were able to get the commitment from Sean and he came to Wright state and became these second all time leading score here behind Bill Edwards. They'll Edwards is so far the only former right state raider player to have his number retired for men's basketball. Yeah of course he was. He was a few years before I started to do games. But I can remember You know following the program at the time and the job which I had in you know what a tremendous player. He wasn't met him a few occasions. Force Jim Brown. Who Calls the Games with the legendary coach right state for so many years and you know be loved by everybody in the right state community they just tells me about the great ability. That were sad. You know you see those numbers know late. I mean you look at the numbers that he put up not only scoring but also rebounding you know and I like coach. Brown told me he says what a competitor also Bill Edwards To This Day obviously when you Rights Day basketball. He's the best ever before I touch up on the next question. I mean Jim Brown Bob. Grody two names. You mentioned as color commentators. They're excellent representatives of Wright State University as a whole I mean the knowledge they have of Wright state you know growing up from the ground up and still being part of the community. That's that's awesome it. Leave the key word right. There is like you said the phrase has grant from the ground up because basically Jim Brown was here from the inception. You know the program. He talks about the stories when they first started out at Stebbins. High School. Able to play games and you know before you know it just when the program started you know Bob Brody came here as a tremendous athlete out of Pity and elder high school You Know He. He was recruited by big schools. Who basically wanted him to play. Just one sport but Bob the competitor. He is and people who are listening to me. No a competitor Bob. Rhody is an everything He wanted to play both so Wright state gave him that opportunity to play both baseball and basketball and as I mentioned earlier in the podcast you know he was an all American in both into this day. He has a lot of pride with a Wright state program and he doesn't hold back when he feels either he'll tell you what's on his mind as well as you know coach. Brown and I think that's a I think what in deers then to ride? State Wright State Fan. You know all across the country. I love those stories too. I mean start off at Stebbins high school and now you have another center which conceit while close to the ten thousands just amazing it is and it is a testament to Ralph underhill For so many years building the program no along with Jim and I have an opportunity. And I've said this to so many people you know It's not just when we're on the air but you know gyms able to share a lot of stories with me and you're right. It's just amazing and I just love to soak it in like a sponge. You know to hear all things that you know. They went through the things that they had to do. You know to help get this program up to you know where it is now and I. You just don't want people to forget those things Li. I'm glad you said that you know I mean you're not that far out of college and you know a younger group. You Know Twenties Thirties. You know even people in their forties. Now you don't want them to forget you know how this program got to be where it is now. Because you know it wasn't easy you know to be able to accomplish the things that they did remember division too. They were a national champion in. The Gym is ring. You know often. You know that championship season into to see when we're on the road The number of people that come up the former athletes and how how glad they are to see him Just a few years ago. We were up in Cleveland and we had a day off in Cleveland between Youngstown. State and Cleveland. Jim Asked we go to the Cleveland Cavaliers game and that's when Batali Topic. Oh the former right. State player was an assistant coach. You know on the bench with cats and we went to the game. We waited afterwards and He was able to come out and you should have seen the look on tallies face as he at the scene Jim and a few years I mean you can just how much respect that he had and how happy he was. You know to see his former coach and this is coming from a guy who's been in the NBA. I mean he's been around. You know he doesn't have time he doesn't he doesn't WanNa see he doesn't have to see you but just to see how much he was excited to see. Jim You know and I think I can describe that too for a lot of the other former players who come and see him because he he had an opportunity to be a part of their life. You know in those guys back later on and they appreciate what he was able to do for them and I get so much out of that you know you know. Lay to be able to see how much You know Jim Brown has met to those guys you know over the year so you Never WanNa forget the history absolutely not and I wish that the student population of right state would realize how deep of a history it is even though it's only fifty some years old. Yeah you're right is a baby when you compare it to others I mean it's still rather in its infancy but you know it has been you know fifty years and Like I said you know for me. Maybe it's because you know I have access to that. You know to be able to hear Jim you know talk about you know those early days and you know a talk about the ones who orchestrated and getting the Athletic Program together at Wright state you know in through the years when as you said earlier all the ups and downs actinic somebody. Who's been around it so long? You know to be able to appreciate it. You know and Nutley. I don't think Jim will have a problem for me mentioning this but you know a few years ago when rights stayed up at the Motor City. Madness won the championship over Cleveland. State to go onto the NCAA tournament just a couple of years ago Once that game ended you know Tracy had the ball in his hands through it up and up into the air toward the rafters you know and right state had one turned over and I looked at him and he was tearing up you know and I I had to ask him at the time and we were on the air. I said you know you know. What would Ralph think right now? You know what? We're all the former players. Think right now because of the accomplishment of this team this year and I'll tell you he he was very emotional you know and and I think that was great. You know because of all the hard work you know that he put in along with all of these other people in it'd be a part of that you know in the current staff and how they reach out to him you know and they appreciate what he has done and you know how much it's meant to them over the years you know that to me is what team sports and what sports is all about. You know how much you know. People respect All of those who worked so hard to get them to be where they are. Let's talk about this. Twenty nineteen twenty twenty season the rights they just had Horizon League regular season Champs. Yes a tough loss in the semifinals but great year. Great Year for right. Yeah I think so. And Coach said many times throughout the season. He says you know You know your pick to win you know. Is it tough? You know to be able to to to be the ones who are able to get through the tournament and what it all. Because that's where you WANNA be. You know you WanNa have that opportunity with a target on your back because that means you know you're good you know and unfortunately it didn't work out the way they want it to you. Know at the end of the season There were a lot of expectations with this team. But you know as I said you know. He said he wants the program to be in that position. You know and unfortunately they didn't get there and you feel bad for the saints because they are the ones who really wanted to get to that. Ncwa tournament you know one. More time you know but as it ended up Nobody got an opportunity for that because of the corona virus outbreak in the state home. And all of these things associated with that. We did have a tournament this year. You know but for the seasons concerned it was quite the roller coaster. Ride at times team won a lot of cloth a lot. Lot of close games Came up short in a few games and of course That last game against you. I see definitely. I don't think you know was true story. You know of this team throughout the season and what they were able to accomplish. But you know as you look ahead and hopefully you know We can get back to some sort of normalcy the way life was you know before this. Ah Corona virus and look forward to next season. Because the raiders are we'll be back and they'll have the Horizon League player of the year who with richly deserve loud in love and a pretty good supporting cast around him and looking forward to seeing you come his way in. You sat out. This year is a transfer from Grand Grand Canyon and you know all the other returning players that we have with. Tanner Holden He'll be a lot better. And you know all the guys you know looking forward to seeing you know what what they can accomplish next year. Because I'll be honest with you late I think you I see is made themselves a lot better now with their coaching change. I think from what I've read about. The new coach is already bringing in some good players. So you know which I think is good. I think this league needs to get better. You know gets needs to get better all around because I think it'll be helpful. Hopefully someday that can be a more than a one bit conference. I mean it's interesting you mention you. I see because I thought Steve Maclean did a nice job but I mean hey I not the one to hire coaches right. Thanks so it's just looking from the outside. But with these new hires and actually won the assistant coaches from. Uic follows me on twitter like That's interesting but I think you icees always been kind of like. They can be really really good but they just never been able to get over the hump. No not you know in the shadows of You know a big city you know and fact that There Rizal League at the time when you know Butler loyal and Even Valparaiso to some point have been in the League you know. I think there was opportunities to habit to Bid League at times. Especially when the Butler bulldogs were here so now the the League at least you look at the numbers and they don't why it's not where it used to be. I can remember when assembled Butler was in the League they were ninth and tenth rated. Rpi You know in the country you know but now they know. Drop down to what thirteen sixteen conference in the country and that makes it really difficult. A lot of that has to do scheduling. And you know we won't really get into that you know that's well beyond my pay grade you know and it's difficult to schedule. And that's the tough one of the toughest things for coaches to do but Yeah you know I think that Uic will improve themselves. You know you look at Oakland. You asked me earlier about What has changed a lot since you started doing games. Well how about the transfer portal you know and how in how players are now opportunity if they want to leave because they look for a better opportunity which you know is their prerogative and they can do that but it sure makes it tougher coach to be able to build a program. It's hard to when all your pieces just moving around and trying to the right fit. I mean that's something that now just really occurred to me the transfer portals outrageously you know shuffled like it's almost as busy as a coaching carousel. In some you know it has. It really has like you said it's hard to keep all the pieces in place and a great campus. Had a tough time with that. You know in Oakland. You know you do what you can do. You recruit these. Here's the thing you know. Coach Brown on. I talked about this. He makes such a great point about you. Spend so much time. You know Recruiting a kid. You know getting them to come in come to visit. Come INTO THE PROGRAM. You know develop become a better player you know then. All of a sudden year to goes by and for some reason be Homesick. Or maybe they think they have better opportunity at another school. They just decided to you know. Put themselves on that. Transfer Portal a list and head out the door. You know for what reason you don't know You know no idea and I think originally I think a lot of people say well you know? They didn't like the coach now. That's not the case at all. I think there are a lot of situations where guys just you know are looking for another opportunity and LE- let's face it you know if you're just a college student going to school and study whatever you WanNa do in your life's work Let's say you're going to one school and you say we'll wait a minute that that school maybe offer me a better program. It might help me in the long run. They can do it you know. They don't have to sit out a year. They can just go ahead. And transfer over you know so you look at it in that realm. Well they've got every right to be able to do that. So that's just another stressor for coaches these days to be able to keep guys who want to be here and you know. I think that's one thing that's coach. Nagy you know he he. You can see how loyal at least this point how these guys are to him because he straight up. I mean you hear that we're transparent. I mean he'll tell you exactly what he expects from you and he he will back that up. You know so you know where you stand you know and our player in that situation. I would like somebody like that. I like the boss like that. Who's GonNa tell me and tell me the truth? You know and tell me what my expectations are in. I'm going to be held accountable because it's GonNa make you a better player next to make you a better person. So you know coach Nagy. I think I'm sure it's it's tough on him. You know somebody wants to go somewhere else because you spent so much time doing it but like you says you know you WanNa be here or you don't want to be here you know and you can see right now with this group at this point you know. I have not heard of anybody wanting to move on at this point but you know you never know until last couple years couple of guys decided to go on. But you know what there's other guys who are willing to come in and get that opportunity So I think that's another reason why I think right states in good hands right now because you know they have a leader who has Assistant coaches with him. Continuity here That I think players respect that and they wanna be with them. If you look at Scott Nagy's last stop was it. South Dakota South Dakota State South Dakota state rabbits. There's too many South Dakota's the action now. But he was there for twenty one years. Yell that's right definitely loyalty aspect there absolutely. You're right That's unusual you. Just don't see a lot of that and a lot of For a lot of the baby folks who have been around a wildly there was a manager for the Los Angeles dodgers who signed one year contracts for you know twenty plus years or whatever it will allston you know who s from Dr Town Ohio which is over there by university. You know one year at a time you know. When he was loyal to the dodger program before Tommy lasorda came in. You know so there are guys That are still like that. You know some people are comfortable but you know in today's game like you say there's so many You know it's it's difficult to find someone like that now because you gotta be up to make the money when you can because the expectations from alumni and all the fans you know that's just one stressor not in addition to try and to have eighteen to twenty two year old control your life's work that makes it very difficult so there's a lot of time between now and the start of basketball season if the virus wiped that out. That's not Oh but twenty twenty. Twenty twenty one. What are your expectations for this right state squad and the Horizon Li? I think they're right up there. I mean I think I wouldn't be surprised to see if they're gonNA pick again because you know they have such a force and allowed in love. I mean everything goes through him and he'll be a fifth year senior You hear coaches talk a lot about you know guys your five years. I mean that's great know To have somebody who's with all that experience and all that talent and then The guys that go around him. You know expect Tanner Holden. You know to be a lot. Better fact expect everybody. Who's coming back to be better because You look at the history of coach. Nagy and his staff you know. That's just the way things have gone. You know they developed. Is they better than this is there? That's why they bring them in. But like I said you know I hope to see you know competition. I think youngstown state will be you know even better last year. They showed some consistency this year. You know within the League and outside the League and they're non conference schedule so I would you know there's a new team coming in and Ip Fort Wayne They had a little success. You know in the Summit League Uic Green Bay is always going to be competitive along. Milwaukee I think is hopefully going to get a little bit better so I just hope all the schools get better too because that's going to do nothing but make right state look even better so I expect to be there right at the top with an opportunity to win and Fort Wayne. Once upon a time they had the youngest head coach and Dane Fife Five. Yeah Yeah Yeah. The mastodons time. If I remember correctly now writes played them a few times and I think maybe I have to go back and look Maybe at home but the one game that stands out to me was the final year. That schilling was the head coach. I write state. Played them in a non league game during The Horizon League schedule they went to To Butler and lost run a Thursday night and then traveled over to uh Fort Wayne to play a Sunday Saturday game at noon so there wasn't a whole lot of time. The team Stayed Indianapolis that Thursday night. After the game they lost a Butler and Drove up on Friday. You know and you know spent the day there and then had to get up early on Saturday and play and they got beat. I mean Fort Wayne came out. And just you know laid. The lady to and that was very crushing. Defeat for Wright state alumni up there that game was also on on on the cable TV back into Dayton and they just got blown off the floor and They came back home One couple home games that Played the first round of the tournament after -Troit's got beat and then a few days later. That's when Ed Schilling was asked to leave and then they hire. Paul Being Cardi a few months later at least the indeed at Fort Wayne trip wasn't terribly long. I will say though the one thing I really like about produce Fort Wayne coming into the Horizon League. Yup granted it might not be the biggest It's not RPI anymore. It's net but that that's still wear change but they have baseball and Horizon League will once again have seven teams. That feel the sport unless there's a team that drops between now and then but seven teams in baseball. That's you know. Yeah you're right because if you have less than six as You well know Lee. That's not good because then you don't get an automatic bid to the German and Horizon Lakes had baseball teams for quite some time. Now and I mean seven is GonNa be weird because you can't really have you know home and home series of all at least when Cleveland State was in. But I'm sorry that's not the point but it'll be non it'll be nice to have a close fo and Fort Wayne and you know it won't be as close as Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati but hey it's it is a nice addition logistically. It's right in the middle of all the schools. I mean it's right there. I'll be honest with you. The rising linguists looking forbids one of the bids came from Fort Wayne For the men's and women's basketball tournament after it was decided they would not go back to. Detroit and you look at logistically. It's It's right there in the Middle. You know pretty much all schools Location wise. So it'll be a right. It'll be interesting to see how they is in even in basketball How they're able to Make the schedule. Because you have an odd number of teams now and you would have eleven teams Both women's and men's basketball. So you're playing. You know ten other teams twice so from what I understand. It will be at Twenty Game League schedule. You know next year which means sweat to less games on the in the non conference season. Which I that's debatable. Lee Lot. Some coaches say. They're okay with it and some don't like it Next year also The Summit League and Horizon League challenge or whatever. They're calling it Where you'll play a game against the team from the Summit League you know so there's you know there's already another game you know taken up between the two between the two weeks. I mean that's pretty cool but the travel on that for some of the Horizon League teams that have to go west. I mean your closest photos Mental Noise and Yeah I think southern Utah still in the summit Not Sure There have been some changes over the years. Scores Fort Wayne is leaving the summit league. But if you look at matchups you would think right now because of the relationship. That coach Nagy had South Dakota state. Who was in the parentally every year? Now is the right up there at the top of the League Would they match up South Dakota State Rights State and also Coming to the League next year in the Summit League is Kansas City. Where former state head coach? Billy Donlon is they head coach now. So they'll they'll be leaving The Western Athletic Conference. I believe is where they're now moving back to the summit. That'd be pretty interesting match up to because coach. Donlan you know his biggest bread and butter calling the defense and you could clear the seat on the court. Yeah that's true that's true so it'll be interesting to see what they do you know as far as scheduling concern next year. You know and how it's going to affect the nonleague schedule because that's really important in terms of which you talked about now use the nets To be able to rank these teams. You know come tournaments on. This is a question now left field but if you had the power to add a twelfth team and the Horizon League to make it even who you inviting and why. Oh man you're right that is feel that sound. That sounds the bleachers -ly. I Hey know there's so I mean that's good I mean there's so much involved know teams being able to leave leagues. You know what their needs are which sports they have traveled. Schedules going to be concerned. But you know if you just had to ask me you know right off the top you know because I like the way. The League is setup. You know with the larger mostly for the larger metropolitan areas and travel partners. You know I I think that's great I would I would I tell you? I know it's a little out of the way but I really like Murray State I think they're very good year in basketball. They would be they would be awesome. You know it'd be able to get into this league. I believe that and You know you look around the OVC. The Ohio Valley Conference has some pretty good teams and You know some of them. Aren't that far away and I definitely would think something like that or even you know it seemed like Robert Morris out of Pittsburgh. You know who's said some success for a while. They fit that criteria. You know if it's in a large metropolitan area you know and they could be on there their proximity close to Youngstown as well as Cleveland State. So you know. There's a couple of the schools. I think that would fit. You know but you just don't know what's GonNa Happen. It's musical chairs times. We Talk About Coaching Carousel the player transfer portal and the conference shuffle to. That's big in there and I always thought in a Horizon League's always you know. Been a conference. I like just because they have these teams in big cities like Green Bay. Milwaukee Chicago Dayton Indianapolis now Detroit. I mean you got some big cities in there. I don't know how many folks know about that. They don't and that's something that the League continues to pride themselves on You look even when Butler left Before I came into the latest few years ago Leaks decided to stay. Keep their offices in Indianapolis which let's face it you know that's where the NCWA offices are also Great town okay. That was born there so you know. I have a lot of good things to say about Indianapolis but You know the big cities. There's something that They promote an opportunity again. You can get lost in the Shuffle. You know at times For Years Butler was on the shadows Indiana University Purdue Notre Dame and the State of Indiana but until Gordon Hayward Shelvin Mack and companies showed up in along with Brad Stevens. Sunday went to back to back final four. You know that. Got Them some national notoriety and they took advantage of it to the Atlantic. Ten for one year then moved onto the big east where you know They're able to pull in a big. Tv money from Fox you know. It's a really help their program for all so you know it's about being at the right place at the right time and Having the individuals who you know. Are there on your team to get you to a point to wear you know. Use that opportunity to to move on and yeah. I like to these big schools. Because let's face it. I mean these schools but to these big cities you know Li. I mean you've been a few of them around the Uganda. Some of the rogue a right state. You know you could end up going like in some conferences to these schools way out. I mean we've done that in non league games you know. They're they're nowhere near any like I said earlier the first game I went to mount pleasant. You know up in Michigan you know you think you get Detroit. You're close you're really not you know. You GotTa go towards Lansing than head up north again up to the you know the central part of the state and it's a long way in its out kind of the middle of nowhere so we're very fortunate to have these teams and larger market areas. And you know you don't feel like you know you're out cornfield somewhere but it's mount pleasant. I mean that's a great first tremendous tremendous history to they've had an outstanding baseball programs football. You know they had some great great teams. You know over the years from the mid American conference any believing you know. It's out there a long way to get there but They have been a great you know. Ncw school over the years in factly Somebody I'm sure you looked up to as far as broadcasters you know who started there and went there Dick Burke you know a central Michigan. That's all right. I forgot about that that there. You go absolutely so outside right state outside. Who and you touched on this. In the beginning about your beginning in broadcasting. What else have you done in your career? Go Man Oh shame. Shame mention this or not no. I'm not you have to do what you gotta do. Okay like I said you know when I got married you know next to nothing. You know My wife had a little girl was nine months old. At the time and We knew each other three months and we got buried and adopted her. You know a few years later you know we had a little boy also and they're all grown up now all right. They're adults and I have grandkids now but Life goes by fast. But you know sometimes I had to drop out because I wasn't making a whole lot and I question if I was ever going to move on and have an opportunity to do what I wanted to do. Because let's face it a best ones to appreciative right. Now that I have given that opportunity is a lot of people. Don't get that and they really don't and I'm very thankful for that but I I got out for a while and I worked at McDonalds. I was a manager for McDonald's suffer a few years I also got out and worked for a company called super subsidies for a while before I got back into radio for good back in the early. Nineteen Ninety S so. I've been very fortunate to have been employed doing things that I really enjoy doing since the early. Nineteen nineties but Work Fast Food Was a manager. You know did what I had to do. Some odd jobs and Backley My Old High School baseball coach back a late. Ninety s asked to be assistant with him at Sinclair Community College so in in addition to working ill at the time I just started deal fulltime with a mix one of seven seven and just a few years before I started doing right state basketball. You know he asked me to be an assistant baseball coach with him and I cherish that. I really love that and get paid a whole lot. A not not at all so as for the love of the game and just an opportunity to make a few bucks here and there but it wasn't much so I gave up my weekends to be with these guys you know in the spring and the fall But it's something that I'm glad I did because you know it really makes me appreciate you know the opportunities that have been afforded over the years but like. I said I love baseball. I couldn't turn down that opportunity and Co chairperson. God rest his soul Passed away about five. I don't like ten years ago and You know I really appreciated him. Thinking of being giving me that opportunity and before I continue on I definitely deserve it because I I love listening to you. Call Right State Games and you know when you're on W. H. O. W. H. I. O. Rather it's like. Hey I know that guy. He calls right that games off. Reshape that Lee. Thank you that means a lot now. Also you mentioned someone that helped you out and who's passed away. There's also someone I wanNA bring up on this episode Mad Sirker. He passed away Last week now but definitely definitely a guy that got things done at Wright state and northwestern Ohio when he got that job at the dragons to he was an official score so it was fun being in the same room with. I'm talking ball so I'm glad you brought that up Somebody who doesn't like to be talked about as you. Well know you worked with him for a long time and you know when I when I learned of his passing you know I was shocked. Like everybody was but That's the kind of guy who use the perfectionist. Love Love Sports. You know you ask him any question Trivia you ask him any question about stats. I mean he instantly had an answer for you in if you didn't he looked it up and he got it quickly and he was able to help you out. S all he wanted to. Do you know from my standpoint. You know calling games or whatever if you had a question you ask Matt. He was able to deliver and he never wanted to take credit for anything he never did. He didn't WanNa make a big issue about himself. Either but you know they have that opportunity to to work with someone like that. It was so selfless you know in the He cared about was You know helping out others you know and it's just so tragic you know. We know what happened to him? He was taken from us. But you know he'll always you know the memories you know you never know what impact these had you know. Wants some of the people whose lives that. He's touched while he was here on the service. Here's a great dude. I mean he helped me out live when I worked right stained dragons and I can. I can remember time. We had a rain delay at fifth third field. So what does he do? He pulls on Mister Robinson's neighborhood. And we wanted that for most that time. It was a great dude. There was one last soccer game of the year right state. He brings up this hot hot tray of meatballs and everything he feeds everyone in the process boxes like that dues awesome and he just cares about. He cared about people he did in A. Here's a fire. He's fiery at times you know because he wanted to get things right the interesting what you said about he brought the was it. Mr Rob neighborhood or wherever that was if he had. You wouldn't know if you didn't know him. The kind of sense of humor that he had you know it'd be totally different than what you'd expect as he's all professional and does this but he had that little sneaky little devilish part of him at times which you know. I thought was awesome. You know it just cracks us up you know To be able to keep us going you're right. I'm glad you shared that because that was the site of Matt. I think that a lot of people didn't see I. I'll be honest. This corona virus quarantine with no sports yet seen Matt pass away that that was stuff that was especially since The other family is put off. you know a memorial service Because of the you know there were suggested not. Have you know group events which includes funerals weddings you know? That's that is tough Now you're exactly right league knowing I've talked a lot of people and it's like you know we just wish you know that mad that You know final goodbye. You know like others and Unfortunately it didn't turn out that way and you know but hopefully we'll be looking in the future when his family maybe as able to put something together to be able to have everybody get together to be able to remember Matt and all the good things that he was able to do? The people's lives. He touched over the years absolutely Chris. How has the corona virus affected your jobs have Right State and oh well at rice date? You know we. We actually went to the tournament in Indianapolis. And that's when you started to hear more about it in the news There was no bans People I think when I was it was funny. We were there this first time. We were at the Indiana Farmers Coliseum. Where they helped tournament this year and they were quite a few Hand sanitizers that were put out for everybody who came to the game But nobody really I think made an issue out of it and there were some signs the toll people hey mixed reclaim your hands. Keep your distance you know. It was a voluntary thing. However you know The day we got back We had learned that Wander possibly I think it was just one of the officials who worked the right state. Uic Game Apparently was being tested for the corona virus Nicole nineteen well. I had saw that on twitter and I was made aware of that and Apparently Jim we're not very close. I think the closest we were was twenty feet from where we were broadcasting problem so I don't think they were very concerned. Having a tell us about it but we found out in. We're all fine you know. And apparently he did test positive for it. We found out later in the week. I did you know through media and he was fine. He was recovering and You Know Still. You're you're you think in the back of your mind because of such of the unknown that goes along with this This virus you know one. If I caught it you know you know what do I do? You know that type of thing. Everybody's that way right now. You know before shortly for us. We didn't the TEEN DIDN'T HAVE ANY ISSUE WITH IT. A small understanding afterwards that they were you know. They announced a few weeks. After that that you know they were asked to self quarantine they did. Nobody got sick. Everybody was fine. You know but you know you come see that close to it and you start thinking about you know while you know this. This could have been us. It's going to happen to us. You know but now you know you can't get together as a team. I mean not from me I mean it would have been the end of the season anyway. It affected US. Because you know right stated already gotten the automatic bid to the nit so that meant you know no one added in no nit game so this season abruptly ended you know so Now you've got baseball. There was looking forward to having a game that weekend in three days after basketball season ended to work Roti. And do some baseball games. And that ended the post-poned those and then you know another week or two went by. They decided okay. We're just going to have to postpone the season you know and That's it's tough. It's tough for us. Personally you know to not be able to call the Games. But it's even tougher on the student athletes and the athletic department's mainly right now. I haven't talked to anybody who writes state but look what happened today at the University of Cincinnati Because of budget cuts. You know if you saw that. But they're totally eliminating their men's soccer team and you know so I wouldn't be surprised to see a lot of other schools. And see what they how they handle this. And that's that's heartbreaking to although a week or so ago Hilton Days. Who is a right state? Great in soccer. Both men's and women's ask coach. He he left and then Bam today. Men's soccer gets candid UC. And I wasn't GonNa talk about it because I wasn't sure how big of a soccer fan you're but man that's things especially since soccer heavy Cincinnati is. Yeah would that professional team? They're building? A new stadium was shocked to hear that today. Yelling you're right. I don't follow soccer as much as you do. But you know I have an idea what's going on down there and you look at the crowds. They were able to attract Cincinnati and then to see you know a program where university like Cincinnati at a big league The American conference. You know decided just totally had call it. I mean that was an eye over. Yeah that stinks too. 'cause Right Statement Cincinnati. They had a home series for quite some time. It was always cool to announce Hilton days as the head coach. Because like hey I know you you played here. You coached here. And you're here a great state and now you're seeing that happen. That's that's crushing and especially for the student athletes. I mean luckily they say you see. They'll still get their scholarship or if they want to dry out there. There's a wait there but same time. It's still it's still hurts. Yeah it'd be schools. It's been around a long time. You know and it's interesting to see why you know they were put on the chopping block compared to other things score title nine. You know the JAP to deal with. But don't though Leah. I'm glad you mentioned Hilton days. Because when he was at Wright State When he when he left he actually sent me a personal note. You know had done an interview with him and we talked a few times and it was very very nice and encouraging. You left with managed. Show you what class guy he was. You know I mean again. You asked me about all the staff and student athletes you know. Been around basketball and get around baseball. But you know had an opportunity to be with all the other coaches and he is just a class act you know and it's you know. I don't know where he's ended up right now. Maybe you can tell me you know after he left Cincinnati. What he's going to be doing but I mean he is just one of the best. I haven't witnessed anything. There's a little part of me that liked to have them come back to right status assistant coach because Jake's slump cars done a very nice job with spots I don't know and while we're on soccer Greg Julius he was right. State and one of the first coaches for the Columbus crew was all left George Mason. That made me sad because I announced that you. Ud Two for men's soccer and George Marine. I think was scheduled to come in twenty one twenty two. Bojan as like. Oh that made me sad tubes like I. I'm not going to see Andreopoulos now. It's you know this coach. I don't really know about the name of the game now. You just don't know you know you. You just coaches boob on and for whatever reason it's you know it's fortunate and you how sorry to hear that. I know you're looking forward to that. That's all right. I mean stuff happens but it was a cool because hey coach Dover right state and you were one of the first. The coaching staffs with the crew main. That was huge. I mean he left rights to take that job in Columbus and that was I always liked that part so so does FC Cincinnati coach. I know they went through a lot of changes here even during the offseason They're still looking who they're looking at. It's a former Manchester United defender but their coach. They were banking on from the Netherlands. He he got well. Actually I think he you know I think he walked away from FC. Cincinnati says the racial slur. He said but yeah. They're still looking and I saw something the other day on. That's like that's right. Fc Cincinnati doesn't have a full-time head coach yet so they're in the during the with the major league soccer league or whatever they call that end. Mls IT and let me ask you this question. Because we're about this than I. Do you know what plans are they making if any because of this corona virus not able to meet in crowds? Because you won't be long for this season starts you know. I was looking at the everday. Mos's pushing back past mid may now so they're still play. But I mean if you ever go to an MLS game. I mean you see the supporter groups of the crew and FC Cincinnati. It's Marvelous. It's it's just so amazing to me what. Fc Cincinnati is accomplished in their short time in Cincinnati Ohio USA. It's pretty amazing. I slows crowds to sell outset In Cincinnati at UC at stadium. And what they'll play their schedule the play there this year and then they move into their new stadium the following season. Yep and they actually shared a media post about the process on the West End Stadium. And I think that's going to be a beautiful field. I mean the politics behind all that moving. Some churches is star. Stadium the stadium. They tore down to me up and apparently it wasn't for last Wasn't to begin last year's a high school football season but they got the new one open. But we'll get there so I I did not expect to talk soccer. I'll be honest with sports guy doing all right now. I Love Sports. I mean I know you do is soccer a sport. You want to broadcast that right state because you basketball you do. Baseball Buzzer any sport. You Really WanNa do that. You don't get to do a lot of sports and it was a learning experience for me because Right state in the past like I said when I first started doing the Base Basketball Baseball We also did you sort of games of men's women's soccer volleyball so I had an opportunity to do those few years and I'll be honest with you you know. I didn't do a lot of that. And it gave me a little bit experience and some insight into those. Orson really enjoyed it when they had that Opportunity League. It's a lot of fun I could tell you if I can tell you story. I think last season states hosting duquesne and the call on. Espn plus I think it might have been though I interview. Joylin Brown During the second half and right state scores three goals events. Like I didn't see what happened. I'm glad I and then after the interviews over Duquesne scores couple goals to clean out the contest. Why couldn't they score by talking to join and right state score when I'm focused on the field but I love that story? It really good interview. Joel she she. Is You talk about green and gold in your blood joy Lynn Brown. She is She's a leader within the athletic department. she along with Bob Grant and Jeff Giles. You know pretty much working on a shoestring budgets to be able to accomplish the championships through the coaches and student athletes than what they've been able to compliment. You know is the truth estimate you know to their leadership and I think rights glad. I mean they're very very lucky to have her mate. She was a volleyball player. Then the head coach volleyball now. She's helping oversee the entire department. It's that's really cool. It's really neat to think about Yup. Joylin terrific speaking of Wright state sports and all-sports local eight. What some of your favorite things about the sports scene in Dayton Ohio? Well you know I grew up in. Of course you know you follow the sports guys. You mentioned earlier Elmar Williams because like I said we in my neighborhood. We played every sport. Whatever season it was so we try to stay up to date on what was going on. And you know some great Tv sportscasters I go more Williams. Tom Hamlin you know went. Who for so many years You know to be able to bring you you know what is it and Sports Ohio State University of Dayton basketball. You know grew up with that you know. I had a brush with greatness when I was just a youngster Lee back when Don May was playing at at Dayton and He went to the Kroger store. In Huber. Heights wasn't Huber Heights yet was Wayne Township and it was up there on Chambers Burke road and he was there for an appearance I believe it was for Pepsi. I'm not quite sure but you know Zabel to you. Know Kinda like go up there in a crowd of people while he was there you know and shake his hand you know and I was. Maybe I was in grade school. You know at the time I was. Maybe you know nine years old you know when our parents took us up there because one of the University of Dayton players was up there and I'll never forget that I mean it was a big deal. You know and You know and you know we could go talk about it when we play every sport and you know and the really good behind the local teams. You know like you know you. D At the time and Ohio State football and of course Cincinnati reds in at the time a lot of people that football season with the browns fans but for some reason the browser on TV. All the time. And I'll of I just being obstinate or not. I didn't really care for all right. So so what did I do? I became a front runner when I started following. When I was like eight or nine years old they had the first super bowl you know and I became a Green Bay packers fan because you know they won the Super Bowl one and two you know over Kansas City and then Oakland so I pretty much stuck with over the years and I've been a packer fan because of that I think Wright state got the colors and name because the Oakland Raiders and Green Bay packers almost phoenix. There Woo I read that somewhere. I don't know how true it is but I always loved that note as well. I think I think you're right because I've heard the same thing you know the guy to go to. I think One of the great fans that right state. That's Terry Bogan. You know interiors going to school at the time and I believe he told me that at one time and I need to get back with Terry and asking if that were true. But I'm thinking right on their Li. I think you're right for those interested in becoming a broadcast where the play by play in the newsroom. In the field in general you mentioned a couple of words in the beginning but for those trying to gain the field struggling again the field. What advice can you give people you know you hear it all the time you know Even in the entertainment business you know leak you do what you have to do. You know Sometimes you have to leave your ego at the door you know and if you see an opportunity even it'd be a producer board operator or whatever Because there aren't as many jobs I'll be honest with you in in this business because of technology is one reason out there There aren't that many opportunities so once you see that you have an opportunity to do something even at an entry level position you know if you really want to do it you do it in you go for it you try to learn and when you get there. Continue to get better and better ask questions. try to Work yourself into a different position. If not at that company try to gain as much knowledge and experience that you can maybe to move on if somebody else has another position because these companies now don't have a whole lot of time to train you because Like I said there aren't that many jobs and it's another company sees they can hire somebody who has some experience you know they're going to take you know and not only just from the technical standpoint For what you know but also your attitude attitude. I think is key. You know you have to hold yourself accountable again. Leave your ego at the door. Be Willing to learn and try to make the best of yourself and get that opportunity and when you make sure you grab it and run with it. Swinging back to Dayton Ohio for a little bit. What would you like to see in the sports scene or in the media in Dayton happen in the future? I don't know because there's so many uncertainties right now You know and as far as Broadcast is concerned. You mean data for years you know has been a tremendous sports town you know and there have been ill loyalty and you look at the number of fans that if your University of Dayton and I know a lot of people who have followed that for so many years and The utmost respect you know and it's unfortunate that they weren't able to finish out a tremendous in this year and then my relationship with Wright state and a great program that they have you know that Coach Brown has been a part of so many years to be able to learn. You know all the things that went into getting to where they are right now. You know to me that just you know. It's just a lot of tried. Their you know in the sports here not just basketball but the number professional athletes. Who have moved on you know in Major League Baseball Professional? Football like Keith. Byars here locally you know in a lot of these John Forget anybody. But they've moved on and they played professional sports Dayton. Say it's been a hotbed for some some terrific athletes who have moved on and made a name for themselves and Mike Schmidt comes to mind. You know here's your date and went to Ohio University. Steve you know that some of the older names back when I was Before I was in high school even though I knew about these guys because local sports would cover them. But you know it's just unfortunate now that you see high school sports where I think i. I'm generalizing right now league but I'll get off my soapbox I guess but You know some parents you know. They have the expectation that you know kid is going to get a scholarship. You don't know my my experience would be. Don't ever think that because it puts a lot of pressure your kids. I mean sports should be fun. You know and the opportunity to be a part of a team you know. En- learned Those abilities of you know being accountable for being a somebody who works hard and he was able to be given that opportunity. Because of your hard work you know. That's what they should learn this a learning experience rather than you know they gotta do all this and spend all this money to be able to. You know. Make sure they have a college scholarship. You know I that's just what that's what I don't find it tell. Somebody always thought that's what that's what they should do. You know and I think for the most part I believe. Most people think that way but there are some that you know thanks. That's the only way and really all you're doing is you're setting yourself up for rejection than what do you do you know? What is your plan? B You've worked all that way then all of a sudden it's over you know. Some people aren't able to handle that so you know I just think you know. Sports in general should be learning about Different aspects of Your Life. Being a part of a team you know what winning and losing team. You know what you've learned what you can do to make yourself better than you know being in the lights all the time and you know being there for a you know with a hat which school you're going to go to or what protein you're going to go to. You know I'm not really into that thing you know because I'm glad for these kids who have that opportunity but it's such a small percentage you know that's what I would like to see from local sports standpoint and also you know I'd like to see more local coverage of these kids and what they're able to accomplish you know not only on the field you know but What's going on in their life? What they think you know To be able to participate in the state of it I mean. Think about that. Think about the kids who are juniors all of it especially the seniors this year in high school not being able to participate you know in the in the winter sports championships near Ohio in. It looks like it'll probably be that way in the sprint. Sports too you know and then for kids who are juniors and sophomores. You know I mean that's a whole year gone from an opportunity to be part of a team you know. Those are the things that it's really a tough. It's a Gut Punch you know. Leak you know. Be Able to see these high school athletes who are looking forward to their seasons. Not being able to participate because of this but you know there are things bigger than life to control us you know. And that's something that they're learning and you know you hope that they have and you hope people are able to battle through this and we get those opportunities back your soon. I hope so too I mean I mean personally I know I. I work at a loss. Sports I'm what see them back? But the athletes and you know the communities. That's that's words hidden hardest on there and going back to what you want to see. I mean it's like the advice you gave leave your ego at the door type of up. Yeah you have to. It's tough and I really liked that piece of ice as well so Chris. How can people fall you and your work on social media? Let's see I'm on facebook. You know at a Chris Collins and also On twitter at Chris Collins three eighty one people. Probably want Chris Collins Suze That's a pretty common name so I had to find something with a number after it. That's that's the month in the year that I got married. So that's Those are numbers.

Right? You're just kind of sitting there and. This is really GonNa Happen and near the cove and stuff and everything was was happening and By the way if you had a cova test yet have you have you had the full live had the full? Yes, I'll be up no learn sideways than vertically than sideways and vertically again, if you had this thing, I have Chris and I share here on this show and it's also very important for men of our age. To do such a thing I had the covert nineteen swab all the way up to your brain colonoscopy double avenue. So I had that going for me. Chris. I had that as well the. University. I, been. More than ever wanted to not even bill. Bella. Check every, DOT folks. I want no more part of this stuff. Just. Unbelievable. Right. I mean thank God. They've got the the live at now gone so I can't wait to hear some stories on. vk Oh my gosh. So are you are you planning on being at the Games at the plan for you and Al to physically be at each Sunday night spot? Chris Yeah Yeah I don't I mean I guess we could do it if we had to do it now. I it would be it would be hard. You know because I can't even really explain I mean you would understand this. You Call Games you know what I'm talking about did say I mean my my setup Kinda. Looks like a blind airplay right I've got sort of you kinda get trained to different things and if it's a if it's a pass a than. This one play I look at this, and that's that, and then how we time out replays and communicated it back to Fred and drew and and then you know kind of listen to what else saying but also trying to talk to Fred and you know how how did you do that from like your basement talking to John smoltz them he was saying that they he's in his basement call on the game and his partners in his basement calling the game and the producers somewhere else you know calling the gay it's just I don't know how you do it. It's just a fascinating year and we're GONNA. See how it all plays out when with wins and losses. Very shortly, starting in nine days from now, Kansas City and Houston but I I you know normally we do start with the Super Bowl champ and I do WanNa talk with you about them in a second. But this is a as we all know been dominated our world for the last twenty years in the conversation about Brady and Bella check you and I had a fascinating moment sitting and watching the two of them together on the set of the NFL one hundred, all time team show interestingly enough taped out of order that was the first segment that we recorded was the two of them on the second. How do you think they will both fair without each other this year? Chris. Pretty well, I I mean I. Really. Do I you know? Tom Brady's GONNA have offensive weapons that he didn't have at least last year at his disposal in Tampa they've you know. Three tight ends they can play with anybody and you know Godwin Evans and I mean, it's It's GonNa be exciting to see what he can do in that and the other part of him. That you know you know the hard part is this the first time he's had to learn a new offense right and and so that's going to be at the very least. It's going to be a different language. I don't think it'll be new plays I. Don't think it'll be something he can handle but just you know being able to a nod with guys that you been playing with for ten years. Of the world. He's got Gronkowski back there with them one more time. but I really do feel like that. This is going to be a test for Tom especially early on especially going against drew brees and an offense that has been together now. For quite some time. So I'm looking forward to that I. I think I'm more looking forward to watching New England play because new. England is God. They're just such an interesting case study. No matter how you slice thousand different ways. They're just such an interesting case study on on how they continue to win. We've seen Bella check with Al. Brady. In the past I often thought that one time that Brady was. Suspended for those four games that and he started out three know that he was probably as mad losing that fourth game as he was any game, you ever coached in his life even with his third string quarterback having the play because you know there's the point of pride I mean, these guys have heard all that noise all those years always a ballot check is brady is in doubt obvious answer is, of course, it was both them, and so now for the first time we're seeing that split up and as a fan as just a human being it's just interesting isn't it? You can say anything you want maybe it's not relevant in your mind maybe it's. But it makes this football season really interesting and I love the start of this. I love the fact that we haven't seen any of these teams play in preseason. We haven't seen any of these walkies are free agents with their current team. It's like the start of college football and there's just this great unknown I'd never prepared for opening day. Ryan seeing an ounce of current tape of that team that's been put together. So I think in many ways, this is the most exciting star to an NFL season that we've ever seen. I Agree Chris and you WanNa talk about interesting that that's why I mean certainly with the cowboys having Mike McCarthy now at the helm, the NFC west is vastly Different and also improved we could talk about Iana. Can. Gakugei now in. The NFC north and what that means with Aaron Rodgers being just an inch in the regular season last year being the one seed coming back now, and then you've got the defending Super Bowl Champs in the Kansas City chiefs along with Big Ben returning from injury and yet I lead with Brady Bella check with you for for a reason and the thing that's really interesting to me is Bruce Arians this week I don't know if you saw complaining about how bad? The offense looked in practice said that he thought all eleven guys out. There were too busy reading their newspaper clippings which I don't believe Brady's heard in quite some time even with ballot check in on the opposite side. When was the last time? You heard Bella check say a this is what he had to say on Sirius XM RE NFL Radio About Cam Newton go feeling extremely hard worker nobody works harder than cameras easy early he stays late any works very Hard. You know some players like the work on things that they're good at you know like if you're strong on a bench press and you just keep throwing more weight on the bench, the cancer type of player, the middle works on things that he's not as good at and really try to improve on a daily basis and and that's something that I really respect him like that's not easy for players really any of us to do something look at something very. You don't feel like we're very good at or it's not one of our strength and your time into when you know it's a natural tendency to do things. You're good at I. Mean I heard that Chris and I thought to myself that obviously his relationship with Brady didn't you know didn't seem to bring it about but if you'd said that once in the last ten years publicly, Tom Toms Topi New England literally thought that sort of stuff you know yeah, I mean. We're GONNA psychoanalyze that relationship long after both of her dead you know what I mean. Let's face EDESSA. Movement and time in the national football league what those guys were able to do together but it didn't totally stunned A. you know that they they went after Cam because we did the game last year Lamar Jackson Kinda, running through those guys enter you remember at the time I the Patriots were undefeated I. Think they know? And their defense was setting historic pay. Yes. poor points allowed and Lamar Jackson went through them like a goose I mean it was unbelievable and it's you know I was an option quarterback in high school and my first year of college and when the option play works. It is unstoppable when it really really works because you have to remember and especially when the quarterback runs the ball. So when you're adding that extra players. So what happens in an ordinary play? The quarterback turns round and the ball off to the running back and he stands and cheers for his guys after that. So it's basically ten on eleven right. But now when you have a quarterback that can one like Lamar like Cam and you have ten blockers on eleven, defenders, the bath changes, and now when you also have to have that extra defender in the box to play that. Run and now you've got nothing but man coverage working on the outside the passing game changes. So after watching the success, the Cam and had in the past against the Patriots and after watching Lamar last year against his record-breaking defense it really didn't surprise me baby that's somewhere in the back of his mind cause you know the whole thing with Tim Tebow and all of that as well is it was he did he know as a defensive minded coach? That, if they really got that right and they really learn how to play that style with is sort of precision that the Patriots do everything you know could they then create this unstoppable offense that was the complete antithesis of what they had with Tom Brady I mean to me all that stuff is just so darn interesting and I can't wait to watch it. I. Think we get him the second week of the season Chris Collins worth here on the rich. Eisen. Show from Sunday night football You Got Kansas City right in front of YOU Houston. What a heck of opener coming up in a couple of Thursday's I I wanna throw something at you. That's not XS and OS and it's might be overthinking it because we've had nothing but time to think but the concept of a super bowl hangover usually means players coaches are feted wherever they go for weeks and months and they get I guess complacent. Or there's been just so much going on that when they get back to work that it feels like grind but this year there hasn't been any of that because of Covid I'm wondering if. You put that in the hopper plus Patrick Mahomes is young and just dynamic and paid, and all the other guys are paid and happy and An- andy. Reid, wants to go back to back probably worse than anybody else to just keep this thing going that the chiefs, our favorites just for alone. What do you think? I think they're favorites for the most part because they they didn't have great change. You know. You look at the beginning of this football season and I think we all have to. Anticipate the possibility any way that we don't make it all the way through sixteen games. I mean right anything is possible. In. This football season so looks like we're going to get to the beginning of the year. Short of you know we don't know the. Social. Justice. Movement you know could there be some sort of stoppage there at night. You know I I I just don't know about all that stuff but I think when you take what they have on the offensive side and the continuity that they have there, and then you look at what the defense was able to do under Steve Spagnuola. In the last six, seven games of the season on into the play offs. I, mean, they were one of the best defences football you want to go back to the Super Bowl. The reason they won the super bowl was because their defense was able to make those fourth quarter stands and really hold down a very dynamic offense of football team. When everything was on the line, I mean Patrick Mahomes I honestly for three quarters. That may have been one of the worst games that I've ever seen him play, and then in the fourth quarter when it was all on the line, of course, he did what the greatest of the great players do So I think the continuity is going to give this team. Some advantages going into the season. So Yeah Oh a worthy favor. I'll tell you the team though that I would keep an eye on. That not many people are talking about I think almost everybody is going Kansas City Baltimore as far as the two favorites and that makes the most sense. Baltimore had the best record and. Kansas City is the world champs but Pittsburgh. You look at what Pittsburgh did defensively last year that team damn near made the playoffs with. People off the street name duck playing quarterback. And and when you think about what they did defensively. Hundred. Defensively they were something else defensively and I don't know that much about Tommy John Surgery. But I heard that there are some people that can't wait to have Tommy John Surgery they're pitcher because they come back stronger than what they left and everything I've been reading about Ben is that it seems like he's throwing the ball as well. If not better than ever because his arm for the first time years years years isn't hurting. So I, if you take what is if that defense stays solid and there's no reason to think that they won't and then returns on the offensive side, I mean the north, there's GonNa be a heck of a fistfight for those football. So I love it. Chris Collins here on the rich Eisen show before I, let you go the best team in the NFC coming into two thousand twenty is. these. I really fell in love with San Francisco last year and I picked them to win the. Super Bowl. And I was so smug sitting up in the stands feel like I I swear. I told everybody this is what was gonNA happen they were. Just, one of those you know I didn't really say it out loud i. just kind of sitting there going you are such a genius. and. Then it just all went so south. So I'm still a big fan of the forty niners I don't like some of the injuries that they've had and I'm scared to death to even say this. But the Dallas cowboys at least on the offense inside to me feel like they're just loaded up I. Love CD lamb coming out of the draft I just really did and Maury Cooper is one of the best one on one route runners. Gallup's a really nice player. Elliott's you know we know what he's going to be empowered is a guy that I think it'll be a much bigger factor this year the backup role maybe receiver coming out a little bit of it depends on how well do without Travis Frederick there at. The center position. But but I I just feel like that. This is a team that really does have a chance. Now, how long does it take their the flip side of of what we talked about with some of these other teams getting off to a hot start I don't think they'll get off to a great start because there a new team new coach new coordinator on the defense side with Mike Nolan's I. think it might take a little while but I see no reason that the cowboys can't be nearly talk come. Wow. You Went Dallas and I love the caveat I hate to say. You know because everybody in the world either loves her HADES. Dallas but I look at them I love James around their quarterback receivers and you just get the feeling that the DAX gotten a little bit of money. Now he's and yet he's still didn't get the contract and we've got a little bit of that chip on his shoulder man I watched every pass this guy through this past season and I'm just going there. He's a lot better than people give him credit for and he's he's light blend. He can. He can that read option well, enough he's not gonNa you know he can escape the stacks I if they get. The only thing I worry about Joplin's blind. You know are they anywhere close at center and left guard to what they used to be? Will they get the production out of the tight end position know Blake Jar would take that next step on on that but I, and hopefully they hold up at the cornerback position. You know those are the things you gotta worry about the cowboys but man, they got laid Vandross Jalen, Smith or to hotshot. You know and also also linebackers I mean Marcus Lawrence. Everson grip I mean. Got It all and there's no reason. The reason for not I know and they also have maybe one of the most fascinating players of two thousand twenty Alden Smith who was such a beast rushing the passer. Who has had so much trouble staying sober these back, and if he is Alden Smith of the days of the niners. Look. Out. That's Averaged almost a Saka game and as I three years something like that. He was unblockable unblock. So who knows I I? Honestly, I cannot wait to get this thing started I just can't wait. I'm did ready for four different teams and basically forgotten about the rest of the league. So I, get lost in my own little world this time of year but I can't remember a time that I've felt this amped up about the beginning of the season and I know there's a million things to be worried about in this world in two thousand and twenty, which is the worst year in. The history of my lifetime anyway, and there's so many different things that we need to solve as a society and I did all that. But I, also get the is depressing as the first half has been I'm hoping the NFL and be NFL players with what they're doing to try and improve our society and our culture as a whole just lead us out of it and at the end of two thousand twenty and I'm excited about it plus one. Chris, thanks for the call. Always love our checks. CONGRATS on that You know all of us together with NFL films and ballot check and Bill. The NFL one, hundred, all time team winning a couple of Emmys that was again, always bring it up to you because it really was a top five moment for me. So just wanted to say thanks congrats. Days always a pleasure. Always, that's Chris Collins worth pro football focus is of course. One of his focuses as well. It's amazing. It's amazing helps. Make sense of a lot of things. Watching the NFL before we take a break real quick, just want to mention you know what I'm focused on interviews but I've got peripheral vision. I see everything going on. So Collins Worth. Mentions, the cowboys is a team to watch I looked to my right and TJ, Jefferson starts sipping his tea tea SIP T. J.. I noticed a little tip out of the cowboys the resident Cowboy Matisse I arranged. T. Dr Jones. With my rubber gloves there's GonNa. Make sure. You're safe. Great. I use of that new drop. And then I don't know if you gents noticed. Maybe you did mike since you're right next to Brockman. Chris Collins Worth mentioned he was an option quarterback in high school. Chris. Brockman says me too. I mean. I did I was I was. I wasn't an option. Collins, worth than I have in common. Added to the list. Down just a little bit. We'll take a break in terms of football and social justice and what is going on in the real world and how it might wind up. In the NFL world has already is Melvin Gordon. From Kenosha Wisconsin and now the Denver Broncos, next, do you own or rent your home? Sure you do and I bet it can be hard work.

If you're on hold stay on hold, we will take your calls this hour Melvin Gordon the Denver. broncos about to call in here on this show. He's not wrong collins worth about the Pittsburgh steelers man Dave. Defensively you need to be fast all over the lot you gotta be able to pressure, which is four guys up front. You gotTa have somebody in the middle who make sure that the back end in the front end there are all together and then the back end. Gets. Buttoned up because the front end just all eleven guys working together. If you look at fantasy rankings just to that real quick Pittsburgh's number one number one projecting going into the air he J. Watt could be defensive player of the year. Without question, I do pres upfront my guys. You know Devin Bush in the Middle Link Patrick Joe Haden I mean. I like it and now ben's back. That's the big question I know what type of bend you're getting I think we're going to get the Ben I just can't get the Ben. I think you're going to get the Ben that we've all known I. Don't think I don't think you're GonNa get diminished Eli or or somewhat diminished Phil because. My judgment, we move forward thirty eight years old because I understand what happened to ally towards the end and he's now out and I know fill up at a very difficult twenty nineteen and everybody thinks that Ben's GonNa have the same thing I don't think so. I really don't. Okay. Back here on the rich Eisen show we are live in Los Angeles studios was great chat with Chris Collins Worth moments ago. That was just great. Boy He loves the Pittsburgh steelers. Is Terrific for you. Steeler fans out there. He knows what he's talking about. You sits there in Cincinnati. He's got a front row seat for everything going on right there. Ravens steelers. What if the browns take a step forward? Camping. You cannot be any worse than first overall selecting teams. So the bengals have to prove Joe Borrow, nobody's even talking about, Joe Kinnear. Yesterday. Could God, he posted a picture of himself with no shirt on and pads, and he looks like a G. Q. Model Dude. Dombi, we just got my ear and so did Brady, Quinn Wow. You went. Went there Brandon Quinton when the heisman trophy maybe have the greatest college season ever? We can close. So the AFC north can be improved. You got to figure that all right is is Chris Brockman Melvin Gordon on the line? Yes, he is. Joining me now from the Denver broncos formerly of the Los Angeles chargers, and of course, the Wisconsin badgers is none other than Kenosha Wisconsin Native Melvin Gordon. How are you sir? August man. How's everything Denver treating us? Dollars man no go guys a good organizations. Good. So Excellent and You know before we get into the football aspect of things I I am mandated with your hometown in the news What are your thoughts when you're you're seeing your hometown mentioned as much as it is in the manner in which it's caused your hometown to be in the spotlight Melvin. Oh. That's pretty sad man. You know you know just we have to do better as a community as people. You know seeing that man it was just disgusting. Made me sad because I know that's not a direct reflection of you know our community in what it's about but it just sticking in to see what was, what's Kenosha like is a growing up what was it like for you Melvin it was a good place. You know you know had plenty of encounters we'll cops and things like that and. You know it's a lot of good people. You know not so much racism around and obviously you know you'd expect here and there and that's everywhere. But overall it was a good place. You know we never really got treated him fairly. So I'm just out that. So when you say encounters, what do you mean by that? This hand like this you know you run into cops you know you see cops all the time cops do a lot of stuff that community You know you just see cops often and You know you never you know had a incident where were. You A guy, get shot in the bag and things like that. So. You, know what I mean? No of course. So so positive, you're saying when you grew up, there were positive encounters police, which is obviously what we're. We're all hoping to hear in hoping to achieve in hoping to to see, do you still have You still have family members in Kenosha. Family. Actually still the. Okay. So what are what are they? What are you what what is going on for for them Melvin? They just you know just nervous especially with You know the shooting that that was going on down there during the protests things like that. So but they're safe. They're all say You know and they're all fine now but you know especially during that. During that. Period lose just kinda crazy on back on Melvin Gordon here on the rich Eisen short of the conversation's been within the Broncos on this subject on social justice. What conversations have you had a team together? We all had You know team meeting on it and you know the data you know most teams sat out. shout. You, know I think Detroit for really star. Net Out. But you know we got up there and we discussed you know are we? Shared. Our you know our thoughts on the situation. The opinion you I got up there and I smoke and. It was good. You know it was good that I let the guys know you know how I feel. Is Good to know howdy. So so overall conversation would you mind You could you could turn aside if you wish which I prefer not but that's the way I'll set up the question. Can you share what you shared with your teammates on the subject own just a general? General idea it's really hard for me You know seeing everything and I was just Kinda really emotional. It 'cause I couldn't be home with my family. during this time and United Express Them. you know if we could do something to the picture rather we you know we try to figure out something here. Something just Kinda let my people back home though that. You know that we all stand together with them. and that they were family here and you know I couldn't be with my family. So I kind of needed support through this So. You know, and then I'll. Back there and we had other conversations but you know the main just when I started it out and that's kind of started out speaking around that. So I think you touched upon Melvin Gordon here on the rich Eisen show from the Denver Broncos I think you're touching on something that the NBA players were were struggling with considerably being in a bubble in an amusement resort when when social justice needs be. Achieved and fought for that they couldn't be there couldn't be anywhere except where they were maybe their own hotels or this resort. and. Obviously, they took. They took action the bucks leading the way. Do you think that something like that about not playing nocco Games could happen in the NFL over the next couple of weeks said that conversation might be had Melvin. Definitely wouldn't put it. I wouldn't put it past. Collectively as a as a whole in the NFL I wouldn't put it past indefinitely have You know our time is coming you know. People and teams and others will look for us to make some type of stand. And make some type of action. So it's to be talked about definitely conversations at but. you know you know I guess we'll really hone in on that one games come around and see what happens. So the conversation had amongst players or To ownership to say in the same way that NBA players have said, we need to do something together and we need to. We need money and we need support and we need verbal support from NFL. Ownership is that what you're wearing? Yes but I think it's more so that conversations are so amongst players. I'm not sure entirely. The monks the owners you know I know you know they had conversations about it but we should we sure do hope that you know. If we do make fan they stand with us. Melvin Gordon here on the rich Eisen show Let's talk a little football in the few minutes I left with you hear your role in the Denver broncos offense. Is it GONNA look like Something we've seen from you before college as well as. The Los Angeles chargers Melvin and then also. You know they really haven't given up the game plan. on what you know is to be expected as far as reps or anything like that We don't know. I. Don't know. I. Definitely. Don't know and have been asked So you know hopefully you know it's like that I really don't like the come off the field but you know. I don't know how they. Have thanks man is I. Don't know how they're gonNA game with me. I I did. You Know My job is just To work so I imagine you'd have a better idea if there a preseason games and we don't have them now. So you're saying essentially over the next week and a half before your game that is against the Tennessee titans that you'll. You'll you'll find out or you'll. You'll knock on the door of the coaching staff and say. What's up I mean, how how how's that? GonNa Work Do you think? Oh no no. No I tell you. I've never really been in this position before art. League. So it's a first for me You know. So I'm not entirely sure in our situation is a little different. You got a guy that been starting here. And then you've got a guy that's coming from somewhere. There's been started for five years so. I I don't know I don't know. You know it's really our question is more suited for them. I guess that close what's it gonna mean when you take on the chargers for you Melvin that's GonNa happen till. November obviously where even wondering it's a week to week moment right now not just in in terms of work but as you pointed out life in general but when it comes down to what's that GONNA mean for you? Oh, that'd be honest. It doesn't matter if it's the chargers or you know Casey you whoever raters or you know the bills who whoever we play you know the It should be the same. Win and give everything I got you know regardless to actually give more because I'm playing against the chargers as a give everything I've ever game. So month is going into every game, win against the charges, the sports, but also like the winner gets everything but you know my mind is the same. So I you know I, it doesn't change charges out a few more minutes left with Melvin Gordon at the Denver Broncos your sites is. Being launched today Melvin Gordon Dot Org tell me about what people can can can see on the website and learn more about you Melvin this everything and just more about me you know. I.

Okay and beyond the Flash, your foundation pages still available there as well. Then again, you spoke to Jacob blakes family. Melvin you call I I didn't 'cause you know it's just a rough time right now my mom actually reached out to I think a people okay. I don't know she spoke to him directly but I kind of just wanted to die down I know a lot of calls and things like that but. I didn't want to overwhelm on and then I heard he was handcuffed and stuff like that. So I was just like man he's probably just overwhelmed things like that. So I'm definitely GONNA shoot him a call being concept but I definitely got I can't get in contact and we'll be a with okay and then meanwhile as well and your world your partnership with Lids.

What the doctor say and what they I think it really has become politicized and I just like. I don't know what you. Are Want to participate right? No I understand when you say politicized you mean, there were eleven school presidents that that that said no because of politics and not because of the science or because they were concerned or there might even be liability issues that it's in play here you know that has nothing to do obviously with wanting to play. Liability for them right. And I think the doctors have made it more than I. Mean you could go on three different channels at night news channels. Three different doctors just say three different things. I. Hear. You're not no I. DO I believe? Again. In in in terms of just. Thanks for the call Dave I appreciate it.

The concept again that that virus is something that has been politically played up to help the party that's currently in the White House or get out that it's being played up by those. On the other side of the aisle than those who are currently in the White House. then. Then then why is Peru currently the worst nation on the planet in terms of deaths per capita? The Italians went through an a health scape. They did that because of American politics. Is things around the world people. I don't understand. Oh. Yeah. That's being this covert nineteen is is a hoax to try and get. One party out now, the party that's an our politics. Makes no sense and I don't know if that's the politics Dave was referring to or not. And in terms of politics, you know who's politicized. Ohio's swing state Iowa's swing state. Nebraska's got A. Portion of it. That is a swing. What would you say county? Because the BRASSICA and main in terms of the. Electoral College is split up right.

Thank you Sir I. Appreciate that Good Morning Americans and hello my friend to the light, of course, as always to be with you and it is likewise a delight as always. To welcome the supervisor, the great town of Greece, the honorable Bill Riley morning sir welcome to the broadcast. Warning Bob. A Wonderful Day amen to that the first off House Cova treatment. How's your town doing? Sir Your staff and residents please. We're doing quite well we have approximately four hundred and twenty five employees and none of them have contracted Colbert. been doing the same practicing the distancing, wearing the mask and but at the same time We're doing what needs to be done to service the community and to make sure we're there for the people. Services at town hall and police, services and the highway, all all those things are going forward. Oh, yeah, of course, the police department is one hundred percent in our town hall or Service Mall is open where you can get your building permits and You know the Tax Department and all that and assessor. That's all open the other half of the town hall which is a non essential Running Out rooms for you know groups though that shutdown right now because of you know, we've got to make sure that we don't have large groups gathering but we're operating. With the COVID. Criteria criterion mine, but yesterday somebody mentioned on the radio about English road being paved twice this year and I just wanted to take a moment address that English roads along road and the eastern portion is a town road. The Western portion beginning amount read is county road. This painting project is on the county side and what happened was earlier this year and it wasn't until the standards of the county and the county is having the contractor repave it but that's again, account project town project. So the and and aided in the end this is again account issue, but it does the contractor then have to pay for that. I would believe. So I mean that's how I would handle it if it were town contract if somebody didn't do work that was adequate and they had to Redo. It wouldn't be an taxpayer's expense it would be at there's that's the way I would end up. Outstanding. a little bit inconvenience, your convenience, but it's going to end in the end be done the right way. Absolutely. But we've been you know we're aware that this is challenging times for everyone We've tried to accommodate make things the best we can for the residents you know as you know, we tried to have outdoor dining, but the governor didn't want us to get ahead of him. So instead of. It, occurring on a Friday when we were going to launch it we waited and Wednesday he announced it so less than a week. Later we got outdoor dining and as a result of that the exact criteria we had established it was what the state adopted. So we were on the right track it just wasn't the right time apparently but we also know That a lot, we have a lot of businesses in our community. Every community are struggling. We have a lot of hundred and fifty restaurants in the town of Greece Oh. We wanted to do what we could to help some of these small businesses having been a small business owner myself in the past I understand what this means to be shut down for several months so. We received a federal grant told me about two hundred thousand dollars and we've been having small businesses either the service sector or the retail sector between five and fifty employees or even two and fifty. It's a smaller amount but we've been giving out grants doing two thousand and five thousand dollars these businesses that meet the criteria so that we Can See them open up when we get to the other side of this cold situation You know we understand that these businesses are not only essential in the sense of providing jobs for residents, but also providing the service when they're open. So we wanted to do what we could to you know and I world, and that's what we're doing hopping priest businesses in that manner. any again I don't know if there could be a scientific or accurate projection on this but. And I use the phrase survivability rate but are. Are the businesses going to come through I will will people he'll still be here on the other end of the Sir. Well, I'll tell you what I never doubt the defensive grenell spirit and their ingenuity, and you know when there's a roadblock putting in front of them, they figure wait to maneuver around the road black keep going forward. So I'm I'm I'm hoping anticipating that the vast majority of these businesses will still be there. Now we've seen the national, the national level, some businesses closing something in our mall that we really don't have a lot of control of, but to the small mom. And pop and the businesses in town I. I think even though the struggling I think they're gonna the majority are GonNa come through this at least? That's I'm optimistic but again, it depends how long this goes on I mean I'm you. You might say it's going to go until election day and then it'll end but You know we have to see how long this is GonNa go speaking agree supervisor bill, Ryan Cuban showing a drive in movies there at the town hall. Oh Yeah. That's another thing you know. We wanted to have activities because so many activities that are residents rely upon our community center a REC center aren't able to happen. So we're trying to be creative to have some family events, and so we we we have screen in our parking lot. We have saved this Azeem between the cars we have about eighty five cars in. A five dollar charge per card and per car, and they also get a large bag of popcorn. So it's a good value and the full each time we show and we've got thing it's August eighth the movie will be jaws So we're getting a good turn out there and the people are appreciated, but we're trying to have some activities for. The families were also on our library side, our libraries extremely busy and again I think these type of services are needed more now than ever where people are staying close to home and limited ability to do things we are expanding we have in the works long before Covid to expand our children's library doubling its size adding additional thousand square feet to it. That project is going forward and that project we're paying for out of our reserve funds money. We've set aside for this. So there's no bonding involve. We're increasing the size of the library and we're also increasing the parking lot because it's always full and we had our own VW crew do all the work there the double, the size of The parking lot and while they're at, they put in an ice skating rink in the back one, hundred, two, hundred for the wintertime activities start residents. So we're trying to do what we can to provide a great community for the people that live in Greece and you know so they can be proud of the town that they limit you bet house lake. Lakers down to forty six point relieved three the last time I checked, which is the lowest we've seen in the last few years You know I'm going to fight again this fall for the to be as much water as possible and let out over the Robert Moses Damn so that we don't end up in spring in a bad way. I don't want people to get comfortable that because the water is lower this year. We don't have to do anything and I think that's that's a disaster if you if you take that it took. So I'm GONNA fight again all winter long. High outflows over the dam as far as that goes, I'm marina down there. It's just booming. America fact that's another project. Our own DPW is doing expanding the parking and I'm moving when I first arrived at the town, the marina was providing zero value to the town no revenue at all and dr a mess we investment and put putting new docks, and now the marina is turning over around two hundred thousand dollars a year to the town in revenue. So it's you know. We're we're count on the water we WanNa make sure residents. have access to did you guys have any protests up there? Sir? We did have a protest about I think three or four weeks ago Having, it was peaceful but we were prepared we had the. Police out We've blocked off the road that they were marching answer that there was no incident of anyone getting struck by a car and it was peaceful.

Lebanon was definitely not fireworks just looking at the video you see a series of pops in a fire to start. That's not fireworks that looks like small arms ammunition 'cause there's no colors in it. If you've watched any kind of videos on of fireworks, explosions, you see. color stars in different flashes of color. All I saw was small arms ammunition going up. I I don't think so if first of all, there are white fireworks. Okay. I'm. Not GonNa say they're the best because it'll be racist obviously okay. But they do like those ones just go up and go bang like that Those are often white the the you know, and then they'll do all the beautiful colors the there what the people in Lebanon are saying are that there was a fire in a warehouse where they had fireworks and that that somehow as it spread triggered a an explosion in a warehouse were there were twenty seven, hundred tons of ammonium nitrate. the small and the thing was small arms fire. That makes me not you know A. Accept Your theory is that Let's bullets. Okay. Arms fire is bullets. And There is a muzzle flash when a A gun is discharged, you don't see it daylight sheer seat at night Also, you know it doesn't you know like if if you throw a bullet in a fire it would it wouldn't shoot a bullet it would it would. It would bang a little bit but it doesn't fire a bullet. It makes a small small popper explosion as that powder. a combustion is no barrel or cylinder afford to shoot through certain shoot a bullet in those little bursts of white light that you saw. At the fire those were They were elevated. They were at the second story level something they were higher up and you know an less it's some gunman who's like twenty feet tall i. don't think that would have been the case Paul I appreciate you phoning Sir.

But we didn't know who was and at that time probably nineteen seventy. I went to a concert at the Eastman. Theatre with Peter Paul and Mary. And who did they drag out the start to show son houses like what the? Who is this? and. I immediately became a fan even though we had less than ideal. contact with each other but he then moved out of town and I think he died in Detroit. but I have all his albums and was a decent guy until he drank. His true. A lot of a sadly What an amazing. Piece of history though you've saying, have you written down or shared that with anybody Paul or? I don't think I used to have his mugshot but when we move to Samana were in town visiting the month when I moved to Savannah I it got lost along the s as did David Boies at some of the other celebrities that wound up in the lockup in Rochester.

ABS DOT COM to learn more. ronna bound. Weather no callers. So we're free attempted temptation to be distracted. First of all have you is this. Do Smell. I smelled something bad something in something's gone bad. You should clean refrigerator out. Did you see somebody? Dear, two weeks ago what is is like a smell? It it's like a ransom like, oh, by it. It's very very bad. No I don't lie. It's the Ad Nasty I think. It's almost as if Chris Collins is still isn't as an in prison we can. We can smell the impropriety of is immoral in Florida's conduct I can I can smells still SM- Funny Chris Collins. His lawyers are back before the judge saying your honor we can't send Congressman Chris or former Congressman Chris. Tell you your honor. What a great Vela he is. You know this Chris Gallons big supporter of boy scouts all loves loves the boy scouts no not not like a priest your honor but he did a big huge and it used to be for crying out loud. He's created so many jobs your honor. Great Fella. Great. Fellow short little short mid bothers him. Clearly, you can see the way carries himself Bantam Cock. Syndrome. But all my client, your honor he's a great Alegre listen. He'd love to go to prison Looi love to accept full responsibility your honor pay his debt to society but Europe, they got this covert deal. Have you heard of it it's been on television I. It's covert your honor we can't. We can't send sending to prison would wheelers Cova de might get covert in prison. Of course, the deal is that. There is no covert in the federal prison system that we are aware of right now whereas. You Know Collins who's is in Florida now going out to dinner and stuff like that. Little bit of beach time whatever long that right? Hey could you put the Sun Lotion in the center of my back just rub it on their Oh, you have such a wonderful touch. Chris's outliving the frigging life. When his ass ought to be locked up. Govan is they use that excuse once he got all that no, we would not want on. No we would not want him to get Kovic. So Yeah you continue living your millionaire life down in opulent Florida and don't you dare go to a prison where you'll be socially distanced from anybody who might have the disease. This is just a furtherance of a scam it to be honest with you. It is just it's the compounding of evil and here's a I'll shut my mouth on this. Because I think we're going to talk about a barn webster or something like that I. Think so. Here's what needs to happen. They need to lock his ass up right now and he said he wants to be incarcerated at a minimum security thing in Florida right near his. Mansion the old down there. Right. So they can bring him like what what those like those little tiny sandwiches rich people eat would like a fish eggs on or something like that. He wants to be close enough I think. So that may be are. Those people who like bring you things are they all named Jeeves or what is he wants jeeves or whomever that is to like bring him out his little fish egg sandwiches fresh from the kitchen at the mansion I'm saying we would not want to inconvenience him. My thought is that one lakh is asked to. He owes twenty six months. Let's get the clock running on that. Okay. and then. We should find a correctional facility that is as far from the little fish egg sandwiches as humanly possible. I I don't know if you're aware of this but back before Cuomo shut the country down and you couldn't go any place. Me The new Yorkers could go places. They unfortunately had this habit of not coming back. You know they would go and say, wow, it's nice not to be screwed by the government and they would stay there emceeing saying. So that's where your kids went. But Anyway, my point is that there's a lot of it and and and and don't let my wife who's from Nevada here this but some parts of it are frigging ugly. Okay and we've put some federal prisons there and I think what we ought to do is we ought to take Chris, Collins? Covid former congressman below you know he was the first member of Congress to Support Donald. Trump. So we OUGHTA him to, and again I apologize to my wife who's a from the PGA her people settled Nevada sir, Pony Express station they ran that they're all all they got their pioneer routes there but we should take his Aston of Atta imprisoned him there. Okay. Unless unless they got someplace in Alaska that's open whatever like I, here's a question. Do we own Guam right? Nobody wanted Oh we got that in the Spanish American war all my guys. We are winners sending to Guam, lock him up in Guam half a day. That's their national greeting there. Anyway wasn't in the saying so yeah, Chris Collins should be locked up. now now, about because. When you seek elective office. Which of course, exists in our society because of the shedding Patriot blood. And you then. While in that office instead of exercising appropriately the public trust. Engage in. Felony. Crime. Right Seemingly for the enrichment of your family and associates. Then F you very much Chrissy. And also it he did this at the White House. Here's the thing. You and I aren't going to get invited to the White House. Is Not GonNa work out that way. I'm sorry hate to show you down skip but that's just not the way the ball is going to bounce. But if you or I were to go to the White House. We would be. Overwhelmed? By the history of the place. Oh I don't care if somebody from my team or your team is living there at that time. We'll think of all the president's all the history, all the deeds, all the good. All the decisions and will recognize. That were standing on holy ground. Right. This place and some others down there in Washington that big domed building, for example, it the one over across the street from that with the big columns out front and the protesters were there signs there's some holy ground out that way. You and I are going to honor and reverence that if we ever get to the White House. Chris Collins when he was at the White House and I think that his visit included free sandwiches from the White House kitchen. Maybe you then fish eggs on there I don't know. But while Chris Collins was at the White House. He chose to engage in felony crime from the property. At sixteen hundred Pennsylvania Avenue he's he's there and he's on his phone. And he's communicating insider information. That was the substance of the felony. for which he was convicted or other of which he was convicted. So that's who Chris Collins is right by their deeds e shall know them. I think the Bible says and those deeds don't deserve never another covert pass and those deeds don't deserve club fed in the Florida Sun. Right I'm not sure what the dry Tortuga czar, but we put a prison there and that's where he ought to be back with you in just a moment and. If you will stop frigging interrupting me if you just let me do my job. Okay. I in expert fashion per chance. We'll talk about the bar up and webster on Newsradio wham eleven. Eighty. Does the second income me? I was going to talk about something i. Tip My Lips. I look forward to it Dang? No it wasn't where I went running yesterday wasn't. What I had for breakfast your escapes me forgive me. This is kind of I was GonNa talk about some I really should use notes. I should write this stuff down. Okay. Just finding way the burks grail in webster. South Avenue. I have never been there I don't go to bars The noise I'm not. It's not my thing but the deal is that Thursday night last week they had a dozen people in there and undercover came some kind of investigator an investigator dad the kind they make television shows about okay wherein the investigators are portrayed by very handsome people with like those ridges on her abdomen like, yeah. Where do they get that from amazing but the deal is an investigator. This is undercover hush hush quiet. Okay. An investigator went into berks grill on South Avenue Webster last night and check that Thursday night. Walk into the bar there observed approximately one dozen patrons. We don't have an exact number because when you are investigating, you know what you're distracted and I'm not going to count every single one. Okay. But it was approximately in the ballpark of a dozen. I don't know if that's like a regular dozen or like a Baker's dozen or like a an orthodox doesn't know but some kind of dozen of people was in there. Okay. The investigator went in is on the Cutie. If you're wired I don't know if you're under wired. Nice. But the point is the investigator went in. To the bar. Okay. undercover. Someone on the other side of the bar. Walked towards the investigator and said, now, ongoing investigation, we can't give you the exact dialogue that paper is not been released. Okay. But said words, the effect of May I, help you please. Yeah exactly, and that will frigging come up court. Okay. May I help you please? Okay I. Got Your please right here. the investigator stay calm. Don't blow your cover. Investigators said. May I have a beer please. Okay. All right or maybe I don't know they've been to undercover school they. They've got things. We don't understand maybe it's yeah. Give me a Brosky I. Don't know you've got to take on a persona when you're an investigator and your undercover that's what you gotta do. Okay. So. Yeah Gimme Bruschi. At which point and listen. Viewer discretion. This is going to get graphic and it's going to get up setting, and if there are children around whatever else like that may be people who are prone to fainting stuff Amish people whatever just. Turns Down, for second okay. All right. At that point. The person behind the bar filled a glass with some substance and we don't have the labs back yet but we believe it may have been beer. It was a yellow like color one of your frigging kool-aid Beers like that it had a frothy type Top. Again, the the lab will have US results and other a six eighteen months. Will you know then for sure? But the person behind the bar delivered what are investigators believed to be a beer? And turned. And walked away. And turned. And walked away. There was no offer of hey would you like a substantial meal with that? Can I get you chicken wings not the pointless to bone variety but to though baby drumstick kind. Nothing. Right nothing. Excuse me would you like a premade sub from the shop down the road? Would you like a nickel or perchance some solid haring? Not. A frigging thing just to beer. Okay. We know we've got this all on camera. Okay. And while they're. While there are investigator now did the investigator have to drink the substance? We think was beer. If if it may not have been beer, it could have been carling black label we don't know. While, the investigator was there. you got in your head on a swivel baby who's got your six. Okay. Head on the swivel. In came over the course of some period of time it's an investigatory details we can't share with you. Now, three additional people came in. and. They likewise ordered beer. Maybe, a Foo foo cocktail I don't know a lot of your young people go for that stuff hell they've got liver despair. It's not that big a deal to them but in came three individuals who ordered unspecified alcoholic beverages. And did likewise not get any food. So that's not right the state liquor authority has yanked the license of berks Grill one of ninety, four such establishments a shutdown. you breathe a sigh of relief who gosh thank goodness. Thank goodness. We've got the government protecting us from stuff like this. It. Without a liquor license, they'll probably a go out of business. You know they're not making any money sound pickled eggs are salt herring? Are They not not a bit? So at any rate burks grill you will they come back we don't know.

It's worth it sportsweek right now. It's been the longest what four and a half months of all time. Yes, yeah. Over here so jittery that to get back to betting on Sports, I'm so excited i. also just had the moment that it feels you know the stupid tweets. We've seen the last four months. Nature is healing. in nature isn't healing, but nature truly is healing now that sports are back because I tweeted out a picture of Wrigley, because the cubs are playing the socks right now and someone replied, and said fuck the sox fans and someone replied back to him and said Fuck you and some apply tax havens said you wish sports. Arguments like that energy. We need winter I got I got a small taste of that last week. I was going to to the redskins. Read it to see if I could get out ahead of whatever the story was going to be, and the first like five posts on there were all from like fans of different franchises, saying hey, bills fan here coming in peace just reading that as a preview from like a bills fan, a cowboys fan and niners fan. Yes good, a little bit of normal sees great. I'm so ready to not care about Syria Shit anymore, and just getting back to carrying like carrying way way too much about dumb shit. That's our right as Americans. It's our duty as Americans to do that and I'm very very excited to get back to by the way apologies to mls golf. You have been back whatever? I was talking. Tucker talking soccer, and also golf is really back now. Because we had a rules violation that everyone got mad about. Your best friend Mike Greenberg was at the front of it. Being like I saw the ball move from sitting on my couch so he was very upset, but it feels like sports are back in my call it in no I. Don't think they I think he got away with I think they got rid of that. She got rid of the sign they migrated. Now moved over to work for the NBA speaking of golf violations at that price and went on Friday was all. Dude, so can we nominate him? He's like he's the now. The number one triple be i. think he's a sports back bitch of the year, Oh my, God the fact that he now has his caddy blocking camera guys to, and it was a very relatable moment when he's counting his shots. Every single person who's ever golf has been in that moment. faulk oh. Yeah, there was are there to by the tree, and then fuck off had too many beer i. don't know what what shot him on, but then he kept hitting the same shot out of balance. Just let that be relatable. Regular dude he goes. He goes over the ball. He's like. Are you sure my ball is out of bounds like unfortunately Bryson yes because I don't believe you. Let's get another rules official and the second guy comes over is like yeah, brazen! It's definitely out of bounds. You hit it on the other side of the fence without a doubt, and then he just started like. Listen I think that history is going to vindicate our Bryce. Takes Zun rather than later. This is a classic road rage type on a witch-hunt hunt. He's road rage. Stink sick time he looked like a like a fucking grill, trying to find an acorn the Cornfield when he was looking for his ball, and he's just like he was pacing back and forth getting so angry and looking like a big loser. Because he hit that ten are boy. Brooks made the cut made the and I'm not gonNA. Say! Brooks would never ever make an excuse ever because he's just a standup guy. He's not like price and D. Sham blue deep Bryson D Shamshad. bitchy Shambhu Yeah. Oh Yeah, bracing, D Sham a blue it dyson to Shambo you record low, had that one written down sort of Tyson I. Don't have dyson okay so brooks. I think his niece still hurt again. I'M NOT GONNA. Make he's. He would never say it, but I'm just GONNA. Say it for him I. Think his niece still hurts so that's probably why he hasn't been that. Great well. Let me check in on this. Was this a major No, okay, then okay, then we're still six major were still at this. This is the seventh major was yeah. It was the six major, so it counts. Yeah, but yeah Jon Rahm good job winning by so much. The two point penalty doesn't give you the loss so good for that sports or back feels good. Baseball on Thursday Exhibition Games in the NBA and then, of course we have all this good news, and it feels like we got positive momentum, and then the NFL is just going to fuck everything up by We mentioned on Friday, using our brains to say we got time. We have nothing but time, and now all of a sudden you have the Texans, and who were experts in the chiefs chiefs because they play. They're supposed to play Thursday night game to open the season, so they can open their training camp earlier than everyone else, and they can also invite rookies a week earlier, training camps open, and now everyone's like. Hey, do we have a plan? No we don't okay well, fuck. It seems like this was last weekend for them to get their shit together like if they don't have a plan in place by Monday. That's GONNA set into effect A. Domino situation where the entire season might get delayed damaged, and you're right good. L. Treated this off season like you remember having summer reading. A book report due on the first day back in school, and you like fucking. I got two and a half months to take care of this thing and all of a sudden it's it's Labor Day weekend, and you haven't read the book at all. And then you gotta go on. Spark notes to try to just read the summary and write a real quick bullshit report. You don't even have to do an analogy. From my twenty five years ago, Hank was literally doing his taxes on Friday on the show. That's true. Yeah, that's that's what we're working with. Our brains are. Roger Goodell. Extension off testing. Plan your we. We do it all the time. We are king procrastinators, and the NFL we were hoping that some adult would be like. Hey, let's get on this instead. I was reading something they don't have anything figured out. It feels like not only talking about the health protocols like testing. How often they're going to test all these things. They had to figure out the money side to where that seems like. It's probably going to be the hardest thing to figure out is splitting up the CAP. And like how much do you put off to next year? Guaranteeing money for guys to show like his obviously, players are saying to to the NFL. If we show up day one. We want something because we could show up. Get sick or show up. Do Training Camp for a month and then? Then have the season cancelled and get no dollars. How does that make sense so it I I mean they're trying to coordinated where you saw the tweets wherever we WANNA play. That was very funny. I mean they're taking the page out of a baseball's handbook. Every player was just like tweeting at Roger. Goodell we like Roger Does opening up his phone and just refreshing. Be like fuck. I just got added by Mahomes. Decay Metcalf Russell Oh. Fuck Russell. Wilson's wife is pregnant with futures. Kid, what am I going to do about all this? It's probably actually wasn't. Roger, does his wife checking his twitter his wife on her burner. Say You're playing children's sport. Just shut up and get there and be happy. Yeah, millions are out of Work God. I would love to see her burner account right now. Yeah, it's popping its pop and so i. don't know I. Let's not do the negative today. Let's do the Poss Chris Collins Worth we'll tell us on a scale of. Eight to ten y'all sports are definitely coming back for POS. Episode Ball's coming back. We have Chris Collins coming up awesome interview with him. anything else from the weekend that we had to touch on before we get to WHO's back seemed Really put together Nice. Little packet for us. Yes, truly Lawrence got engaged Trevor, Lawrence Cotton, which is just say, say nothing about being like a future NFL superstar, but just getting engaged when you're a senior in college. Dumb Shit, but it did it on the yard line. That's Kinda cool question making. Decision questionable. Did he touch the rock before well? He's touching a rock as he's on a knee giving it to giving it to her, that's. Yeah. That's about it there. That's bill. It looks like they took the picture at. Seven o'clock in the evening it's good decision making nice little glow up there. Yeah, we had some baseball games. Do Finer in the front row which was hilarious. The baseball fan cut cutouts I really WANNA. Buy Baseball Fan cutouts, but I WANNA make them be dude, perfect and give them all cold source that'd be that'd be sick or you know also had a cold sore. I okay Let's let's do our who's back. We show billy by the INCAS, billy, we. We had the talk on Friday show. He is shown up. He is ready to go. He's got his marching. Orders were going to make a man out of this boy, and it's positive vibes only with billy. We'll tell you when you can start saying soy again you cannot until he starts acting like a soy, but right now he's acting like a soy man's way man. Yeah, all right before we get to WHO's back our friends at whoop. Whoop is a fitness wearable. The provides you daily.

How did you are whether you're ready to go with? You needed day off. It is your personalized trainer in tune with your body. You need it i. actually am averaging like seventeen cups in the middle of night and my terrible sleeper. That's where I found out from whoop, so I'm trying to work on that and has all the data. Get yourself some data. GET YOURSELF SMARTER USE WHOOP USE Code Com. COM DASH be stool. Bill he's gotTa Strap back on his wrist and is ready to take on the competition. Get on, whoop today with the code. Take for fifteen percent off and please please please beat Billy Again Cohen. Take for fifteen percent off. On loop DOT COM, okay? WHO's back the week Hank? I got a few Hughes backs of the week cars with my first one. IS THAT CRACKS YUP? Oh, yeah, Deposit Sports, being back empty stadiums. MLB means a lot more like really solid contact back cracks, which is one of the best sports from the Mount Rushmore? Black crack is so much better than the Bat Ping. Yes bills Mafia is back. Yeah Big Way Canada shut down. The Blue Jays being allowed to play in Toronto, so there's talks about the buffalo bluejays becoming a thing which would be. Electric I feel like even though you know krona social distancing no fans in the crowd bills. Nafi is still going to show up. They're still gonNA tailgate low bluejays. Chris Berman I hope situation where they just never go back to Toronto Buffalo has never turned down a chance to party before sporting events, so I don't think it matters I mean there's probably mostly. Yankee fans in Buffalo I would imagine, but they still will come out. Just throw themselves through tables before bluejays. Absolutely, it's the same color scheme as the bills, too, so you? You can wear best to the baseball game. That's GONNA. Be that Chris Berman is definitely thinking about all the buffalo blue cheese references that he's going to be making wants. Football starts at I'm just thinking about how excited I am to hear. Make those that's it. That's it well. Now I had other ones, but we're talking about him. Leader and we talked about one before. What was? Love and Zach love is back. Love is Ben. Is Love Back. Love is absolutely back. That's my. Aaron Rodgers though yeah, that means that we put he's dating to. That house together. He bought himself now. He bought that to flex for her to be like Danika. You're so cool. That should have been the. I got you a crystal room for like that overlooks the Pacific Ocean. would be a real shame. If Danika maybe did some crystal I, don't know. Put some crystal like bad juju on Aaron when he's going out the door. Real shame wouldn't want that absolutely not well. He's dating the girl from What's it called? Outer Banks Big Little Lies Oh my jam, Shailene Woodley so he's. Aaron Rodgers is obsessed with just dating famous people. Gary Watch I watched that fifty by the way, it's good right I. I. It was good, Yeah. Yeah he is. He is obsessed with that. Why is that I? Don't know. Why is he? He just he's got. He Dates I. Think I think maybe not. I was GONNA. Say It would actually be counterintuitive. You'd probably want to date a non famous person to convince them to move to green. Bay Wisconsin like a famous person me. That's why this is always happening. Is that you ask someone to move to Green Bay? Wisconsin in the winter? Winter as a famous person is probably hard to keep that relationship, and maybe he just likes living the single life, so he only dates people that are famous that he knows will not move in with him, he can stay up in Green, Bay just wrong Dolo all the and also probably getting that Lake break-up. Like you've now I can do whatever I want feel. Every year has got to be exciting. Yeah, for sure new beginnings. Is that it, Hank. That's old on. so my who's back in the week is true love skip. No, but you said yours was going to be true, but it wasn't so mine is logging, even though we discuss it, but I'm talking about my man. Skip skip, SKIP SKIP An. Ernestine are more in love than ever. I don't know if you saw the tweet that skipped. Put out on on Friday. He said for fifteen years Ernestine and I have done this nearly every, Saturday. We played catch, so he's. He's obviously he's a play catch guy, not Hava Catch Guy she never played a sport. What kind of a backhanded compliment, but can throw as if she started in college? We talk listen to music reconnect. It's become or ritual. In fact, I think I fell in love. The first time we played catch and it's just a video. Them just firing like a nerve football across living room at each other. That's. Nice. It's sweet. That's my the question I had was who took this video? It's gotta be Wilpon. Is He? Just lives with with skip bayless, and they just like fucking debate everything every night. But, we also know that on Saturday that's when they go. They sleep in the same bed. Right so that's like that's there four play. is they just throwing a football around until skip? Bayless gets an erection and then he's like it's back honey and she's like. Let's do this. Let's put push the beds together I actually liked this because you can't I mean it's just a natural thing that if you have a football in house view. View Ball in the house. You can't not end up playing catch. It's I. Mean It's you can do it around. Any single person happens all the time in the BARSTOOL offers. Someone has a basketball football. You sit there and watch them and you're like. Hey, let me see that real quick, and that's probably how it started and let me see that real quick started to a beautiful marriage between the Tim so I that I'm on that. All Right? My who's back the week is dad, bots and people not understanding what a dad about is because Zach effort has been accused of having a dad bond. If you haven't seen this picture, it's a picture of Zach Ephron with eight pack, and then a picture of Zach effort with six pack, and they're like. Since when did Zach Ephron? Dad Bought? And I've said this many times before I'll say it again. Fuck the people who have made. Dad Bod culture seemed cool. Because I know deep down. No one actually wants dads. They want the Zach Braff Ron six pack. Dad bought. They want the. You Know Jason Segel Oh. He's got a dad by, but he's also like a struggling musician whose gonNA make it big in forgetting Sarah Marshall and Oh. Everything's always a million laughs because I'm dating this dad bought guy instead. Reality is if you have a true dad, bod. You're just really tired all the time. Because your metabol- metabolism is fucked up and you're overweight and you just really want a nap. He should go method if he's trying to get into the real dad. Bud Culture like the only workouts that he's allowed to do is mow the lawn like man. The grills pick thing on pick up toys. Just puked on babies all the bullish. Here's a dad bought. Thing is bullshit. This is in like Oh. I love a Dad, but no. You don't know you fuck Donald. This was a successful troll of the by the New York Post because New York Post. I don't know if you noticed or twitter account recently. They've just been living high off the horse or eating high. Getting those quote tweets. By putting up an article that says Zach ephrons. Looks, incredible, quick SOx fans and on the right. He still looks very good, but also knew exactly what they were doing when they posted. It just has the beard. Beard. That's not a that's not a dad by. That's a near death. Right because dinner. Zaka Ron almost die couple months ago. yes, yeah, when you show yes. Yes, yes, we got to give his new shows good worrying back on the show. You saving the world pretty. I Fono okay, Bill. That he was on an Avar and the first and the steroids yeah, Bill down. KENNESAW TWEET ZAC Efron admitted that in the first picture it was like he was out of Rehab and went on the crazy diet like focus on staying sober, and he was like it was really unhealthy all this other stuff, so it's like.

All, right? We now welcome on a very special guest. Is someone that we've wanted on this show for a very long time? You know him. He's always in your living room on Sunday night. In the fall it is the one the only Chris cones worth. Gotta I'm on wheels now I almost over slid to runway there. Yeah, you gotTA. You gotTA. Find that senator, listen. It's the off season for you to. Yes, you haven't gotten any reps in recently. Champignon. So answer over slide questions. Do it all like a thirty for thirty on the slide. Started off is the dumbest thing ever invented ever so they would put a mark on the on the thing where we would sit. We sit on on the desk right, so we sit there and they would put a mark as they would say. Put one leg on either side of the Mark Right. Okay fine I, sit my shutdown and I got one leg. SIDE WELL AL opens the show by himself right? That's I don't know he's done it forever and it's Al Michaels in America. In a one on one sort of bonding exercise that he does so in order for Al to do the one. They say Chris you gotTa Get out shot and I was like okay. Well you want me to. Do you want me to put my legs between the the mark on the thing? Are you want me to shot while just lean out right, so just lean out. Give Al some room so he can do his thing. I saw lean out so I'm sitting there in some places. I mean I'm literally unlike lying down. So, in order to get out of the shot, and get my hip and my ass and everything out the shot, so I'm like. Oh, here like this and then Al when he finishes his monologue, these violence bring in Chris cows worth the do it, and then I come up like that right so solution. It was a solution to the problem and we did it how it became a thing. I have no idea I mean it was like. It overnight. There was there was one. I don't know if you guys ever saw it, but I you know I'm not the bows, Internet savvy guy in world and social media, and all that stuff I'm getting better at getting better. But there was one where they did it out. Take this thing. Were there like thousands of people in a bar and then Unin biggs? Yeah was was us on camera, and then I slid in, and the place went crazy and right, and so being the Moron for that I am for about fifteen seconds I thought people really going crazy over my slide. No, they were they were. That was real. That was. That's where we got. That was the initial clip. It was at the Toronto Tavern actually and then what we did in the future, we would superimpose other images where the slide. Famous shots in the World Cup yeah. We did one with England in the World Cup. Goal and we're like Oh. Look what's going on, you guys. A. Huge fan the slide for for a long time Chris I am so honored I that that's amazing in fact. I've got probably like ten more questions about the limit myself to two more. But do you find that you have to wear a certain type of pants to be able to execute the slide like? Does it work in jeans or is the friction too much? You gotta be careful. 'CAUSE SORTA like you know if you over slide then people think you're strange without right. That's that's. That's not good. Because you als legend, if I smash into him or something. They get mad, so I can't do that. It under sliding is a problem, too, so you can't. You can't under sly, because then you've got your head out of the thing, so yeah, it's the kind attraction that you get with your pants as significant. And then after it became a big thing on the Internet. You reverse it. You flipped it on everybody and you came in from the other side. All that. Nobody. No. I love that you actually saw that. It was a big deal that we we pay so much attention to the stupidest parts of sports, and that's me like made my week when you slid in from the other side of the camera when you were about to do that. Did you have a little bit of nerves? Some jitters like I don't know if I can execute from the side of my Ambi sliders I don't know. Yeah, actually there was the debate raged that week. So fragment our producer and I get you guys made a deal. I never knew this I'm learning. Something new on the show you know. A lot of people watch Sunday night. Football Right? I heard that. And and so fred to Delhi, said Hey. This week, and we were I think we're in. We're at somewhere in California. One of those stadiums that had a really small booth I mean there was like no room to do anything, and so he said he goes, listen is just a little wink, wink, and a nod to you guys. Who made this thing up that that we're going to have some fun with it? And so they debated always. They were GONNA. Have Hayao Hey Chris slide on. It have AL looked the wrong way, and then I've. I've I was like no, no, no, no, I said. The Internet is so much cooler than we are I. Mean You can't like you can't do that I go. We've just got a just. If you WANNA do something I'll do it from the other side, but it's got to be totally straight Riad got you cannot. We can't let on that we know is then. It won't be fun anymore like there's gotta be some level of Dow that we're just. Couple guys have no idea that people are making fun out a strike and that's the only way survives anything beyond this, and so we decided to do it, and but it was Larry's because people people liked that better than. Pretty much anything I've done in my career, so thank you thank you. Because, you're right. If you had kind of hammed it up a little bit too much, it would lose a little bit of the magic you guys. It was like a small little gesture. It was subtle. Yeah, the subtlety of it. You absolutely nailed that now. My last slide question is do you know when you like Croatia? Slide when you're like? Oh, that was a good one like flowed well. Well perfect timing. We're ready to roll now, but you know what I I didn't know this either. It's like amazing. Am Only on camera for like what two minutes every week. So this is it and so this is like the most analyze part of my life whether you know your ties crooked. Your shirt does something you know whatever it is, but apparently occasionally right before I start talking. Talking like bite my lip like I go some something. My Dad I know, and so then the whether I bit. My lip was like a betting line or something. I have no idea and but that became thing so then I had to think about not screwing up the slide, not hitting Al and not biting my lip in order to do all this up so now I can't remember what. What I'M GONNA. Talk about no I'm like this is just overwhelming. My brain I this is this is too much for me, so but now occasionally I'll I'll do it and I'll bite my lip, not on purpose, but at an and I I went are trap I bit my lip, and I kinda, start laughing a little bit. I this is this is insanity. This is my to Matt's. Minutes on TV every week and I'm thinking about whether I bit my live over slid my slide or bump, and now this is. Just I think we regretting you at some point, we're doing like a pro football focus. Focus on your slide like issue a great on every single end. The bite was a big part of that. There would be like a lip bite. Are you wearing the quarter zip? Are you gonNa like do that thing? Where you look at the camera and kind of give a little wink to America's housewives out there there were all sorts of elements that came into play for the college worth slide, but I think I think you've got it to a point where you are just constantly in the zone on it I don't think you've screwing up in at least like two three years. You guys have ruined it for everything. Everything you guys do is funny, and you make to shirt, and you make ten bazillion dollars and I'm sure you've gotTA sunglasses content. Contract now. All is everything. Chicago you own like I. Get all that stuff so now. Our Guys WanNa do like a t shirt of the slide. I'm like no. This is the only thing cool that I. do in my entire life I am not screwing it up so if you guys want to do a t shirt, don't. Make a million dollars, and then when I come to Chicago I, come to Washington or Boston or one of the places, and you guys only okay. You deal and you have to bring out too because I had. We'll move onto football and and and broadcasting. You. Guys I read a story about how when you started out, you were just stuffing your head with stats all the time, and not enjoying the moment enjoying your friendship with our Michael, so was there a moment that you constantly said yourself I need to just relax because I, think you guys have great chemistry, and that's paramount stats and information important, but chemistry in the booth is what makes a successful watch for fans. I think the key to broadcasting is eating and drinking. I really do 'cause I mean seriously. We go to dinner. Alleys the wear me out about it does he would get mad. He would say. What what don't you know about these two teams I know you all week long your stuff down in the basement and you do all this stuff and you're doing all this homework and what you need to do is just have a laugh. I mean it's here. We are the night before the game. And it's still show right. What you guys do is sports related, but it's show and what we do is football related, but it's a show, so he talked me into it, so then I started going out on Friday night, and we had a great time, and I was like man shows. The show actually is getting better. And then we started as I, said all right. Friday night and we'll do it Saturday night. And we got on Friday night and Saturday night, and we sometimes we have our wives. Sometimes we have like great friends in various cities and cool people that will come and have dinner with us and all that kind of stuff, and now just it's like we know each other so well like you to spend so much time together. The you don't have to talk to know what the other one's thinking or or syncing, or if it's time to you know, set him up, or or whatever and we're kind of the same way you know we're just like all. Golfing. Farts and just have fun. Yeah, that that is the key I think because you guys make it seamless, and it never feels forced in if you guys are having fund America watching at home picks up on that and we start to have fun, because it's always fun to be round. Guys that are just be dudes right right? That's what you guys did, right? Out of out of everything and I kinda study. What you guys do are PF. Is You know we're? We're like we're like a like a dog. Little brother of your guys stuff here so by, but we enjoy watching what you guys have been able to do which I. Think is to be authentic. To to take yourself too seriously, do have a laugh. And and hope that something gets screwed up along the way, because then you're going to really laugh art, yes? Like Johnny. Carson is way too old for you. Guys know who that is, but urged the guy. It was the first time in my life I ever. Understood that sometimes the best part of live television. was, the screw ups right like he had a great way of sort of getting himself out of the screw ups and I've seen enough of your guys shows and you keep reserve tapes right on people in any anytime. Something starts going too well for that person. One of these clips are going to come out and they're gonNA get humiliated back to where they were when they ran the basement, tweeting out a couple of things trying to. Get T. Mad at all, right? Our show is like ninety percents groups at this point which is. So much so all right so. Interesting point that you bring up about. Like having fun and not taking yourself too seriously, but your website pro football focus you guys do grade the players and you give opinions, and you give stats, and that can sometimes get difficult, so have you had to kind of reconcile that and your brain where you're talking to guys teams before you broadcast knowing that you know pro football focus might have been. Harsh on them or graded them a certain way. And how do you reconcile those two things now I'll throw my guys under the bus in a heartbeat. You guys all about that I. Know that now, but. I did it because we do do that. Right and I have. Had some people really mad at me over? Shawn McCoy you guys suck a bunch of nerds who never played a liquor football in your whole life. That's an exact tweet. Yeah now that that's appropriate for me, actually, I that's that's dead on But you know it's like the math is the math in the grade is the great in like? There were games that my son, who was captain at Notre Dame had a bad game, and he got a bad grade in as guys that are friends of his that play in the NFL and he has we grade. The college is to and that they get mad at him. And then they get mad at me and then when I go in for meeting, I've had three hundred and thirty pound men come up in like chess. Bump me because they were met like walk like hallway like bump into me. One Guy I said I, just need you to know that you can do whatever you want. I said, but I'm related to more lawyers than you know. If you WANNA play for the rest of your life. Just hit me right there. Go ahead. You can just say that. That was Taylor Luanne we. We know probably. I'll never give it up other up I think I could get out of the way. Taylor I'm not sure. Yeah, absolutely absolutely, so yeah, speaking of pro football focus. I've been on some of you. Guys podcast before I. Know Some of the guys over there. I've been yeah exactly George Steve. I've been hammering away at the stat for the last couple of years. I think that fullbacks are undervalued, but they're making a comeback right now. I think that as the pendulum shifted too far to you know never using a blocking back. You've seen some coaches. Take advantage of it with you know you got to shake out in. San Francisco San Francisco? WHO's like more of a h back kind of guy? But you see you see it gradually coming back and we've been hammering on this fullback. Assist that that we came up with and I. Want Pro Football Focus to make it like an actual stat that you guys can track and monitor and a fullback assist according to us, and you can weigh in on this, and how it should be graded if there's a touchdown scored by running back from within five yards, and there's a blocking back on the field lined up ahead of them. That fullback gets an assist on the touchdown. What do you think so? You're more of the Anthony Sherman kind of Guy Anthony Sherman John. Kuhn if you WANNA. Take it back a couple of years that SORTA guy. Yeah Okay I how about how about this I? We Are we playing here a little bit weedon against. Yeah, let's negotiate soon. Okay all right, so if I, if I get. That stat in the PF. And perhaps even not during the slide, not during my feature two minutes, but at some point during the game I find a way to work in the fullback stat during the course of a Sunday night football season. That you are no longer eft. YOU BECOME PF ou. La. Chris. I don't know if I can have. You got this I got this Chris I? Have A counteroffer I. have a stat. It's called the fullback assist and I love it and I was hoping that I personally ask to get it into the PF database in for you to mention on Sunday night football game. I'll just take it, and then he can't. Do you see I froze them. He doesn't know what to do. Know. Are you are your related lawyer? I will. Not. Buy Wife played versions was a cheerleader for Kentucky. Got, nothing but I I will tell you. Got Serious I think I can even throw a little cash into the equation here. Now I willing to buy you I. Know You just signed a new multi million dollar contract, and that's good I'm happy for you, so bunny means Tony Romo right now. You're thinking of Romo. Yeah, not me. Yeah confused. Jimmy Start on. Not Sleeping Pronoun. Did your agent call up the head of NBC after Romo, signed his deal immediately. From here. Started talking about Tony. Romo Romo I love Roma though he's the best. He got my son, Jack, who was working at ESPN now works for NBC for NBC over there, but he got him on the all hidden credit card. Trick you know or everybody has to to buy dinner. Yes, puts in their credit cards. There's like fifteen dudes at the dinner and you can imagine with NFL. Players around and Jack was at the table and they had they had. All die. So where do we all these NFL players through an their credit card? And and Jack had to throw in when his credit cards to and so he throws it in of course, Romo pockets or palm's jacks card holes them all out one at a time, and now he's gotta be. He's gotTa be Guy Jackson know his sledding over on the side is twenty five thousand dollar dinners. Dad You could chip in a little money for me. Course realm picked up the tavern. He's Alba. Yes, so I will. I'll change my name to PF commenter for a week for counter week and big kettle have to call me PF after mass for that week. Yeah. I think that's fair I. Think if you if you can't tell them how big our audiences cheer. One show nine years in a row, and he's GonNa get his stat in, and he's going to give me a week. I'm giving you a stat I mean if we're being honest, here I'm helping the future of because you guys are woefully behind the times when it comes to measuring fullback efficiency some fly by if anything. Damon is coming up short. Yes, anything. I should be asking you to change your name. flipped. By our shifted it on him. Yeah, why not? Brisk is worth. I think this is going south I i. do think I honestly I think it's I think it's a chance for you to be bigger than the slide. Bigger than I do. Let's table this table negotiation and we'll. We'll have an ongoing discussion about it because we need to. We need to lawyer up. Clearly with the so we'll do that. I wanted to talk about football coming back. Hopefully it will we're. We're going to be positive. It's going to happen. Patrick, mahomes signs of five hundred. I don't like to face you did Chris. Actually! You know what we're doing. Thing with Willie McGinnis on last week. You have to tell us. Football is going to get played because we trust the you know more than us, and then we tell other people that trust us, and then eventually it just becomes a game of telephone where the whole countries of course is being played. Someone told me. Chris. I hear here's Lama, say I and I know nothing right? I'm just going to give you. My opinion. I I honestly Donna. I think college football is going to be tough. because now you've got involved Mama Right now. You gotta get the okay from Mama and the board of regents, and and the professors and are. They're really going to be students on campus and are they gonNA play in an empty stadium and Blah Blah Blah Blah, right? I hope they play in the spring. Honestly because I'd never get to watch as much college football as I would like to watch so I hope they play in the spring. That'd be great for me personally, but that's my own personal thing. The NFL though. I do think we'll give it a go. I think they're going to try. And we'll see where it goes, and they'll be some people who get sick. There'll be some people who opt out. They'll be some people that won't WanNA play, but I was around in nineteen, eighty seven, when the players strike happen. And they had replacement players they came in and Ed, guys that had never played the NFL, and they put on Dallas, Cowboy Jerseys and Washington redskins jerseys, and after about three weeks. A friend of mine came up through and he goes Chris. I got some bad news for him. He said it's about over for you. Guys and I said. What are you talking about? We're going strong where this is a good strike. This is Josh. That's the whole thing and he said. VEGAS BETTING LINE is starting to get pretty good. And people are starting to wager on those guys in the redskins uniforms, playing against those guys in the cowboys uniforms, and because it's not like NFL players playing against those guys. It's those guys playing against those guys that doesn't really matter to the average fan who's coming out they just to have fantasy football, and they WANNA make a bet and they wanted to. You know do whatever the case may be. So I think that somebody will be playing. Will it be every single? NFL player maybe not, but I think somebody will be okay. We'll have football. Okay, so we're GONNA have football scale of eight to ten. How likely do you think it is? It will have football. Nine. Chance performance. Okay, so let's talk some football then. Why you you, you watch it. Obviously you're you're you're part of the game? But you also have the website that we mentioned pro football focus, which is great stuff. You want your fantasy guide. They have a great one. Honestly, if you're not registered with pro football focus, you're not a football guy. I'll just say it because it has all the information was better than the name. Yeah, for four like from your perspective. How do teams constantly screw up the draft? And why do you think it's getting better or worse? When it comes to scouting and projecting these guys going from college NFL? Because, it's impossible not to take the pretty girl. It's impossible. How how do you? How do this all the time I I? I do the draft every year and I just pretend like I'm the guy making the decision and every year you look back after like three years at the guys, you would have drafted, and you go moron. It's like fifty percent I mean in the first round I mean. How can you miss on the top thirty? Two players that are playing college football right, but my theory is. It's the pretty girl because when you get a guy who six foot six and runs for five and bench. Bench presses you know four hundred pounds, and he you know and yeah. Maybe he's in every fifth play. Is this freakish play in which he goes around, and he throws the guy against the wall, and he comes in and Saxon quarterback, and they put together a ten highlight package, and they put it on television, and the media gets all wound up. Look at that as is the most incredible ten plays I've ever seen and social media takes over and yet that's not what football is. Football's a grind van football is I can't move my right knee. My elbow is locked up in this position and shakes during the course of the game. My head is killing me and I've still got to go play the the world champions, right and you. It's what it is I mean the so it takes people who have those kinds of bodies and those kinds of skills, but they have that kind of heart that even when there are mess, even there when their total wreck, they're still going to slam their head into that brick wall, and make those plays, and those guys exist right. I mean those guys. Guys exist out there, but a lot of times you find them in the second and third or fourth round, and they run four, six, four, seven, instead of four or five, and they can't vertical jump forty two inches which I don't know other than a wide receiver, a defense back by. We care about that so you know. I I think that's what it is. I really do I just think it's easy to fall in love with a pretty girl. Yeah, especially, if there's not that much tape on, hypothetically, if there was a player that started sixteen games in college thirteen third. Excuse me thirteen games. Story Yeah, he started in an important tech. They were BCS eligible. Player like that, it might be easier to miss on in the first three picks. It could be I personally was surprised that that person did not go in the first three. Thanks bye-bye, you know it happens it happened. You know there's been some great athletes that that just never got a proper opportunity. We're going to get back to Chris real quick, but before we do I. WanNa Talk to you about our new favourite partners over at three cheat. That's right three G. it's the leader derived cannabinoid products. You've heard US talk about him.

You'RE GONNA love it now back Chris Collins. Worth I have a question about Al Michaels. Because you guys do spend so much time around each other. Have you ever seen his top row of teeth? Come to think of it. Yeah don't exist I've never seen him. He's really good at he just goes. That's all they see without all see with them. Just! Say Straight I. Don't know it's. It as hell yeah. I don't know. I think it might somehow be related to his golf swing. He knocked out his top teeth. I, maybe because I mean als. This guy he plays with sends me. A lot of pictures avow like every time L. is on one foot with his other foot on a branch, and he's standing upside down and hit another ball under the tree that he sends, snaps picture and sends it to me, so I think that Al may have knocked his teeth out at one point. I, don't know, but I'll ask so I have another Al Michaels question. This always is. A tricky spot for me when I remember story in Google it and then the only thing I could find is self blogging it from like seven years ago, but does al eat an entire dinner during the broadcast. Yes I think it's research. Dinner. Has Appetizers. Main course ever seen him a supercell. Dessert after dinner drinks, I don't think so when you see. In the commercials. All the time that's incredible. He's just eating dinner with us. He's such a pro. He just eats dinner with us on a Sunday night in the fall all the time. I mean so we we have although I am a little worried I. can you serve food now? The whole cory, how true it'd be a problem we might have to have delivery might have to have I Cuba like full into booth. Yeah, do you eat with him? During the during the broadcast, I can't eat. Because then I have to swallow. I mean when you're eating right? You get that thing where you start talking. Then you gotta go hold on, America, let me. Put out can do and everybody knows it. Everybody knows what you're done. I did you ask the question? So how does I'll do it? I don't know he's the best he is. Joe Buck was telling us that he used to drink a beer in the fourth quarter right now he would in a baseball game he would. He would sometimes sip on a beer to kind of relax them in the later innings, somebody. Who Meal Joe Buck was on that Tillerson Pete into a bottle once in the booth. Have you ever had had to pee during like an actual game? All the time and sometimes their way down the hallway. And you know because you got it. I, mean you guys don't do it, but I've already had a whole glass of water. Just doing this interview so you? You're drinking drinking and drink and write and you're trying to do that, and then sometimes you gotta go. Out Pick me up here, you know, and you try to wait for the two minute warning or some longer commercial break, but when you gotta get I've never done the the the the now the thing under the table all right so this coming season there's obviously seven teams that make the playoffs now, but there's always a team or two teams that come from nowhere and end up being in the playoffs. What teams do you have? circled this upcoming season. And why are they? The Chicago bears? well, you know. They have a multitude of quarterbacks there. I was surprised you had not signed actually. No. I still have a chance. Tight end I think we only have eleven right now, so we need twelve or thirteen. Yeah, Yeah the Chicago bears that I. Is Nick foles really going to be the quarterback. You're the expert. What why don't you like Nick? Foles I love. Nick foles Nick foles was a he played the two games I've ever seen played. quarterback I think I may have to put Brady in the super. Bowl Down Twenty eight to three but it was nick foles in that Super Bowl Allen I. Called that Dame. That one that one for sure. And the other one has to do with a quarterback who no longer in the league right now who played a game? In New England that was off the Charts Colin Kaepernick. And I don't want to stir this pot again, but the night they played New England and it was a Sunday night game. It was the worst weather night I and I've been in some horrendous stuff in new. England is awful weather up there the late in the year, and so we were standing, we did. We did our pre game thing in the tunnel, the tunnel on the whatever side that would be the Boston side of of an and the wind was blowing like fifty miles an hour, and it was like thirty one degrees, and it was misty rainy kind of thing and I couldn't even move my lips. The do the pre-game show. I mean it was, it was horror. So I go to the booth and I go Al Ten seven at best. I'm telling you ten. There's no way anybody can throw in this kind of wet and win and densities, teams, and all that kind of stuff. Cavern, it came out there and this thing is thirty seven, thirty four. Brady had just let them down for another touchdown to take the lead late in the game there's like a minute and a half to go and cavern. Take some right down the field, the other way and scores, the game winning touchdown and I looked over down. I said that is impossible. What those guys did deny it absolutely impossible. And so I've always struggled with the capture. Nick thing and I. Get it and you know people. They don't want whatever it is. They don't want distractions and all the different things but that night. That guy was as good as any quarterback I ever saw player. It's crazy. I'm looking at the box score right now, and it doesn't pop off in the box. Where but. But. I, remember that game, too. He had he had He was fourteen for twenty five with four touchdowns, and you think fourteen for twenty five. That's not that great. Brady was thirty six for sixty five when it's Tom Brady Inco had that many incompletions like that's crazy, so and it was a forty one thirty four game where they wanted. The end scored a yet. Late. Comeback That's interesting. Okay, so Nick Foles! You saw it though you don't think he can be. It or Are there guys like that. Let me let me phrase different way. How do you grade someone in pro football focus that has a ceiling that is astronomical, but that game to game average is tough to of grasp. What exactly he is what you grade every single play in every single game. For every single player right, and so it just is what it is, so there's no difference between an offensive lineman when he's playing against Jj, Watt, and some fifth-string die right. We just we just evaluate in grade. What that guy did on every single snap that he played right? So there's no denying that we've seen every single play. That's happened in college, football and NFL football, so whether you agree with US disagreed with us. Whatever the case. That's fine. We all understand. We think our grades. The best indicator of what this guy's going to be long term, and it's proven pretty true so as we as we look at these guys go. It just is what. What it is right, I mean Nick. Foles has been one of the most ungodly playoff quarterbacks in certain situations that we've ever seen I mean he's just been phenomenal in that super bowl against Tom Brady I mean you would have thought he was playing backyard pickup football. I think I even made the comment during the game was like he's not nervous at all, I mean he just looks like he's out. You know playing catcher something out here and said all this is going to you know as we go down the row, we get to the third quarter. We get to the fourth quarter. WHO's GonNa Fade? There's no way Tom Brady all. He never faded. And yet we have not seen that in the game in game out consistency. You know what he's done throughout the course of his career. Could you put it all together? I hope so. He's one of the nicest human beings. On God's Green Earth. He's just a great dude but you know you got to see it. You gotta see it, but I will say this. He's got huge fans yanking bullet in Chicago weather so and he can. He can move around a little bit, too. It'll be really interesting to see what they do. This year I can't wait to see your comes out of album so one last question about the grading. How do you? Have everyone every single play. How wh- are there times when the assignment of a player? They're doing something that you guys don't even know or understand or defenses is doing something. A guys assigned to do something different than what usually happens. How do you rectify that while we basically have three people that grade, every single play, so we have a blind. One person, does it. Yeah how? How how do you do it blind? Lists No no, I mean like what what does that actually mean is. Blind but like. It doesn't by himself, okay? So right, so they're not. They're not in the same room. So this guy grades it. This guy grades it. If they had the same grade, it goes through if they don't. Then we bring in one of our coaches or former players or guys that have standing that have been there for the full twelve thirteen years. The company and we have debates, and will you debate those plays and none of if we just can't figure it out, we just leave it alone, we. We make it a zero grade, which means that you know we're not giving them positive or interesting. What about if it's like Josh Allen any drops back throws the ball sixty five yards in the air with just a flick of the wrist, and it's really cool to watch, but it's an incomplete pass. Does that get a higher grade than a normal incompletion? No, you know stats are great liars. They really are like there was a game where Aaron Rodgers threw a deep. Ball right and it came down to the receivers hands, and it hit him right man's response is an incredible throw, and bounced off his hands, and the defensive back, who was beaten by two yards, was running behind bounced off his hands right to the defensive back, who took off and returned it right so in the in the stat sheet. You would go air rogers. That's a horrible page threw an interception wide receiver. Got Open and drop the ball, so he's going to get it. And the defense back was gets positive because he got an interception, but in our system rogers gets degrade right. The defensive back gets crushed, forgetting beat on a deep ball, and a wide receiver gets Crawford for dropping the ball, so we all do what the result was. We do what the guy did on the play, which sometimes make people cry, we had. Had One. We had Aaron Rodgers. One time one game. He was player of the week, and he threw five touchdown passes in the game, and we had them as either just a zero grade, or maybe even slightly negative, because he had three passes, that should have been intercepted that were thrown right in the hands of linebackers or defensive backs. They all brought them, and the touchdowns were like a quick flair and the. The flat screen pass and went on like that, so you know I mean we're I know we make people insane. I know he do. It makes them crazy, but I will always tell the players. If they wanted to debate me. Let's go watch the film. Yeah I'll. I'll go show you the greats right? I'll show them to you. This is one happened on this play. This is why we did it and so. So, they get fired up. Man and I'm not that big a guy you know, play wide receiver, and I could use some I could big cat. I could use a heavy and I, got you time got actions. This stuff is fascinating to me. Can you tell me that maybe Mitch Trubisky isn't as bad as his play? Is there like spins on that? We can cut this. It's truly. Is that bad? Well. He's a great runner. quarterback hardly. You know and I think that when he gets his feet set, he does okay can. Fairly accurately. He's got a good receiver. Allen Robinson really like him. He's good player and but. Is there something to be said for the fact that you can be so inaccurate that it makes your ball's actually harder to intercept is a double edged sword yeah. That's a solid point. Yeah! Do we have to give Josh Allen and some of those guys credit. If throw it so hard that the guy drops. Yes, exactly break if you break a defensive backs finger just by throwing a tight spiral out them. That's pretty cool. That's what I was going out with Josh. Allen I'm big on grading players and just how cool they look sometimes. WHO's The coolest guy? Who Do you think coolest guy I mean Josh Allen? It's tough to beat when he throws like a seventy yard bomb Shawn Shawn Watson Pretty Pretty fucking cool. He's moving around and. I mean Garoppolo. Looking human being on earth, yeah yeah. Never gets mad. He never gets mad. It's unbelievable matter what anybody says about him. He just he comes into room and he's got this like like. If you're selling toothpastes, this is definitely the dude that you. You know doing your commercial right and he's just. Has that look in? Hey, how are you guys I? Mean it's amazing I mean some of these quarterbacks now are just so so out of my league. In and you just want to go you know. I'm not worthy. I'm not worthy of this conversation. Yes, I will now. They're making half a billion dollars. I'm intimidated. I would say. The kindle is pretty cool when he plays to just gets mad at people. That's just an awesome play to watch he you know. He's The coolest guy out of anybody to interview Just you just loves it like like rock has a little bit of that in two, and they both have a little bit of this. This little kid thing you know like they're just. They're just having a good time. You know and now we're GONNA party after the game. It's GonNa, be awesome, and you're never going to tackle me. Like his coaches convinced them that? That nobody can tackle you. Go back to that New Orleans game like the biggest player of the year last year Yep Fourth, and one or whatever and they dragged the whole saints real down the sideline. mean he's really. He really thinks that the they can't act. They need to pay him to I. Think you can make the argument that a great tight end like Gronkowski or like Greg kittles what we call them If you're that good at that position. I think you're more. You're worth more your team than like an elite wide receiver so I actually think like there's some there's some merit to that argument like. Jimmy Graham was trying to get paid as a wide receiver with a franchise tag a couple years ago I think they will could make that same argument well, and here's here's the argument. I'm I'M GONNA? Take your calls here for a minute. Because San Francisco's offense in Kyle Shanahan's offense. It's all about getting that side zone running. Thing going. You don't have time out. We're all five offensive linemen. Move One way at the same. Same time and then the running back just kinda goes, and so the tight end is either at the point of attack. If they're going wide or if they're cutting back usually, he's coming back across the other way to block. This guy's an sob block, and now I'm telling you. He and Brock and a handful of guys are ungodly blockers as they as they play, and they can do everything. The other guys can do as receivers now to me. Travis Kelsey is the best receiving tight end you know he has. He has legitimate wide receiver kind of WHO's. Playing tied in, but the Combo package right now. George Gentle I think we had him as the best player in the NFL last year. Wow. I read that your dad was named Abraham Lincoln. Is that true is? The principal is school to your dad was named Abraham. Why? Why did he decide to not name Abraham? Lincoln like when you? When you were born, he took one look and he was like. He's not going to be able to live up to that name. I could have been so close to be a B. J. to. Like a cool name. Jay Or something like that now his his father. I probably excuse me should do this whole story, but. My my other. Brothers were named after presidents. His mother got so sick of. My grandfather name, and all the after presidents he came in and told the doctor that his name was Abraham Lincoln. and. His mother turned around and said that his name is Charles. And, so my father needed a birth certificate. He Tried He tried to go the hospital where he was born and get a birth certificate, and they said I'm sorry. Sir There is no Abraham Lincoln Collins worth he said, but there there is A. George here and Charles here and that. Would you be interested in him and say look up, and of course it's his date. And he had. He had no idea for seventy five years of his life that his real name on his birth certificate was actually Charles. Abraham Lincoln Collingsworth. Wow, wait. What were the other president names? Oh Bob. Well actually I. Don't know they all presidents I'm embarrassed myself. Alexander Hamilton. Allied. And William. Okay, okay That's kind of a cool move like that. If I had to give you a I. said you Chris for the rest of your broadcasting career. You can say one of these two phrases, but you can't say the other one. Here's a guy. Or we talked about which one you take him with you. Here's a guy. Okay I figured that I can't. I can't walk fifteen feet. I. Mean seriously. Do you guys have those kinds all the time all the time? It's impossible if you would ask me. If you would've met me a million dollars. If I've ever said now, here's the guy more than fifteen times in my life. You would have taken my million dollars. I had no idea that's a great thing about the Internet, yeah. Like all all the Zits all the. Ugliness of anything you've ever done in your life. People pointed out to you what it's GonNa fall on deaf ears because. Were you know talking from a point of having a podcast being on Sunday football when you get taped constantly. Everything you say played back to you. It's so clear guess what I know a lot of words. I'm kind of an idiot so when it's played back to being like you use this word a lot of Mike Yeah. I probably learned it last week. That's probably why started throwing my repertoire. Look. Even that was impressive repertoire that so al knows a lot of words, so he probably never said now here's a guy in his whole life right right but I just got gotta come up. It's tough. You, guys. You got to come up with a new phrase for me I I I've been doing this long enough now I should have. You know at least one new phrase for decade. That I've been in broadcast. You should throw in dude every now and then like. Adagio Yeah does that. Though is dude like Seventies. Nobody could be a football. Only when Dombrowski we interviewed in Michigan defensive coordinator actually invented that like the phrase, the calling guys dudes so he he basically breaks down entire roster, and he has guys, and then he has dudes and dudes of the guys that are like you know you can trust in their blue chip. Guys, so I think every now and then like if George, kindle breaks A. A bunch of blocks or tackles. You can be like that is a doot, so it's not something you say all often, but every now and then you can break it out and be like that was a dude. What if I? What if I narrowed it a little bit? You know like I've seen this a couple times in movies or something like that happens where it's just like so cool. And you just go dude dude, not I have to say now there's. This dude! Yeah I. Think what? How do you think I would react to that? Just a dude Paul Coley. Coley yeah. That's his real house. Colour is like the greatest of all time. You had been calling for tolley at least once or twice once or twice to have what about just throwing out a this Haas I love hearing the word, Haas yeah, but you know. That was Keith Jackson and. Yeah! So I just I need. We have homework. We have two things. We've got to figure out our negotiation for the fullback system. We'll give you a new phrase. I think we were up for the challenge so I. had two final questions I was? Does Owl. Write down what his bets are on a card beforehand so that he doesn't forget it during the game. Or how does that work? Al Doesn't forget and. and. The and I'm. I'm sure that Al. Michaels would never bet urge gamble on anything. Sporting event correct would be. My damages reputation. Just sends you down onto the field before the game to given the weather report and come back Al, it's ten to seven. No more I swear to God. Fifteen points. I'm the bag man that's and. How how do you have you that discussion with them at all, though about gambling, becoming legalized across the country, and as it becomes more in popular culture, will you guys be working that more into broadcast? Because clearly AL loves it. ille- drops nuggets, and he he, he talks guys guy talk at the end of Games knows why people are still watching a blow out, because he over unders, endowed or whatever it may be, but have you guys had that conversation, but how you're going to adapt. Al Al of being the rascal. That's his word for it. He goes. You know you guys can't be rascals, 'cause you're allowed to say anything at anytime dictates right. You can't. You can't be rascals because this is, this is what you do, but al, because he's on national television, and there are certain roles and NBC would fire us for certain things that we would say he has to. Let the devil sneak out every once in a while right, and so the gambling thing I think it always been his little bit of the Rascal, but now are you still a rascal? If you talk about gambling because a legal and you got you know the NFL is tied to casinos and you know and you got. Is it a rascal anymore? So now? He's got to come up with you. Know something new it. They CAL cal become a rascal in this modern day legalized. It's a third a third homework assignment. We got to three now I'M GONNA put my brain to that. Because I think I could figure out a way. That AL could Kinda like still maintain his bad boy credit. I just need to know where that line is. elegantly Clo- Cross. Fibrillation we need a little titillation that used to be able to from a gambling reference. Yeah. What if he did the broadcast topless? Man smokey. The bear there'd be too much air. As. Where he asked you otherwise. Harewood. Low. Speed too much all right, so my last question you can. You can say this is totally fake, but we're you on the Jeff Ruby's. Waterfront restaurant when it when it. The moorings came across came off and you guys just floated. The restaurant floated down the Ohio River. Yes I was I, was on the boat, and so I was. A part owner of the restaurants right so I own basically like a toilet. That's how much of that restaurant I as a multi-million dollar restaurant. And so the river l. know you guys have ever lived on a river, but the river instead of being pool, which is like twenty five feet was raging like sixty feet as like a whitewater rafting kind of river. Right and this this so this usually the ramps to get on this floating boat were like down in this day. It was like almost strata. And so at some point we're there having dinner in a restaurant. And everything starts doing like the titanic things like snap pop to in starts moving, and it's an this restaurant. Is Way top heavy, so it literally could have come over at anytime. Luckily, it Kinda got caught in its own little moorings there, but now all the ramps to get off have been destroyed you're. All you're on a boat? And, so it's like thirty feet between the Fire Department, which is now there and the boat with still like two hundred people on here, so one of the owners of the restaurant, the general manager and I go outside and a fire department slides this ladder up to the thing right, and so it's like a thirty foot, but we gotta tie it on or something, and some none of us are like seaworthy kind of guys, so I'm sitting there. Going I I'm tying granny nods with like my shoelaces to get this thing to stay on there and so China tested a little bit, and but now somebody's gotTa. Try and I was like well. I tied to granny nuts. Let me let me try. So and remember now the water is raging right beneath me and I get on this ladder I'll know if I can show you this properly. So the boats like here and the latter's like this so ice. There's about two feet of lag up here so I step my foot on this ladder and it goes. Like that like I've got like six inches of reserve ladder now on this thing but I'm firmly on the ladder and I go screw it. I'm going down so I go down the ladder. I may get fine right, and so it's it's good so now. My Wife, my family, my friends are all back onto boats I. Turn around and I'm going to get back out on the boat and this firemen goes. AW, hell! No. I got two hundred people to get off this boat all not ladder. You're not getting back on. And I go okay, that's logical that make sense unbeknownst to me. There are at least twelve news stations that have now part themselves up on the hillside, and they are watching all this is taking place, so they're all shooting me as the first one that come off the boat right and not doing back on Oh. I. Personally. Now wow this guy titanic. Must Be. On. Your Bill. On National Al Michaels is in Europe and he's seeing the news. This thing and all they can do is take a shot. Me Is the first. Boat Yup on talk radio the next day and one of my partners on there is a guy named. Bill Cunningham and bill. Cunningham opens the broadcast with this. Last night. Chris Collins says damn the women and children. CAST off of this. And I'm telling you I am never had anything stick to me the. Rest of my life. I wish IDA jumped in water and been in Luvell. Instead of what happened to me with that he rushed me. George Costanza you running out. You know the fire. You're just pushing all the women and children out of the way, so you can get off I, but you know what we need you. We need you because who else is GonNa? Say here's a guy on Sunday night.

It's great. Don't let the haters get ya well Chris. This has been awesome You're now a recurring guests that you have to come on whenever we ask you to. which will be frequent in the football season? which on the negotiations?

We just need to get our. He's the PF, T. But he got a small change. I think he'll be back one line to the other side. He'll be back. I'll be back. Among. Just don't Eric on it.

What percentage of the people that were wearing? Those dare shirts were doing so ironically a lot I would say that the federal government whoever was getting funding. Probably got. Ninety percent of their budget from people who are just like big drug use Tuesday mean a sign contracts as ten year old saying we'd never do not legally binding. It's fucking insane. This is GonNa fix it. We'll have a bunch of fucking. Kids sign these contracts. Just say no just say. Food like you on the basketball be grave. Someone just showed up with a contract was like well. Sorry man busted you. Twenty five years ago. You'd never do drugs all right we have. A NEW SEGMENT NEW SEGMENT ALERT ooh! Wow, PF t cut you on that one yeah! Segment alert go ahead Hank.

No just three no person today. He hasn't come close to beating me. That's just say he's actually mad. No, no of course can't be square tonight. I just did not make it public the eighty four other times I Brian. Right. There we go, Jake fight for yourself. right a spinoff of as white guy. We have as a straight guy for Jeremy. Roenick, who is suing NBC actually as a straight guy, he. He's been. He has been persecuted as a straight guy for his comments made spit and last year sexual discrimination. What he's soon has a straight guy as a straight guy because he said that Johnny. Weir has made similar comments and was fine. It was totally fine. He's he's gay and Jeremy Roenick made comments which one of which was Patrick? Sharp is so hot he would be fine having a threesome with him as a straight guy right well I mean if NBC's going to fire people for wanting to fuck Patrick Sharp, you're not gonna be able to talk anymore. No, I mean I've long wanted to yeah. It's going to be hilarious if this goes to trial right if this becomes an actual like if this becomes litigation that people have to study in the future like Jeremy Roenick is going to have to prove how straight is which will be awesome. He's GonNa. Bring up his porn hub search history shows. Book show all the Dick Pic. He sent unsolicited. If. He's been drinking. Yeah, all his man cave his. Little poolhouse that he converted into a mini Bar Yeah Jeremy. Jeremy Roenick fans parking. Only how many how many convertibles do you? How many? How many creed albums? On Oh man. That's perfect. I need to watch this. Yeah, the powerpoint Jeremy Roenick proving how straight here I hope this goes to the Supreme Court Yeah Clearly Thomas would actually ask questions about this if it goes through that fucked. Marvez Chattan as I would call as a straight guy so good job Jeremy Roenick. You've done something that I didn't legally. Think was possible as a straight guy and that would mean that. Whitney and Biz would be involved in escort case. Yes, so come test Jeremy Roenick city to have a threesome with Patrick sharp did look like he had truth in his eyes. Seeing Ra testify at the. At the Supreme Court to testify in court of law about how straight he thought. Jeremy Roenick is for the transcriber that day, yeah? We Love, Ra. All right, so we have stay woke. Yeah, he's not wicked queer. Proves these. But NBC proves that he was like a little. You know like the I. Don't know. Woman goes out the window, right? Now. Jeremy Roenick has one hundred percents wants to win this case. He has to be like off the charts on the Kinsey scale, yes. He s to basically be an insult, yeah! Go all the way to. Be So straight that he doesn't fuck at all right that he hates edges all the time. Yeah, yeah, they're. They're going to have to hook them up to a polygraph. And just like pictures in front of his face and just measure. This pulse. When he sees it when he sees a nipple. We'll guess what Jeremy. It's actually guys nipple. We have! Stay Woke Mark Zuckerberg. Surfing has hit the Internet and. I. Most people were talking about the fact that He. Is Wearing way too much sunscreen. I noticed right away. The dude got fucking DONC. He is got cheeks. big time. Cheeks gotta ask for day, does it is it is a dunk? Donkin the truck when he's on that and you know what I think. He knew exactly where the camera was. He's like looking so coyly over shoulder back at the camera. Like I know you're going to picture this cake. Maybe it's maybe just cake. Peaches back in stocks peach season, so he? I think it's an implant and I was thinking about this like Mark Zuckerberg, every famous religious person. I feel like does some type of cosmetic surgery? You would, too. If you had a ton of money and you could fix something, he'd be like all right fine him to fix it. Mark Zuckerberg is a nerd, though so he can't like. Go get a new face or I like he can't just do something. That's so obvious. What he can do is get a fake fat ass. Yeah, I don't think so hank. No because like tech guys are so. He wears the same thing every day, but when does he have time to squat? There's no chance mark. Zuckerberg's fucking in that. Those Bono he was not. It's not nerd bud at all. Yeah, that's not an has one of those standing desks, no well, if standing desk right now, definitely spent at least thirty years of his life sitting on his ass, right that would flatten that thing. Right out, billy. You think you might be on steroids. I mean those like super rich dudes deathly get hgh, intestinal. Like one hundred percent, each cg like that'd be. That's like our. Get to that level where he get shot up by A. You're on that path theory actually. It makes sense with the timing of it. So member Mark Zuckerberg went to every fifty. He went to all fifty states because he was thinking about running for President He is just trying to Kanye West. Pick him as vice president, so he's like I gotta get a big ass and Kennedy will be attracted me like a moth to a flame. Yup, that might be true by the way no one talks about this photo is he's on an electric surfboard? Yes. Vote right next to him. That's like ready to save him. It's the it is the Glamour of Surfing. He's doing the whitest like I don't. Don't let me be in the ocean by myself. Second Yeah, I wasn't sure he's also bought like. He looks like Mrs Doubtfire when. It goes out the window stuck with. Gap? Came on his face just like it's. He's a weird looking, do he is? He's the only person in the history of the world makes being standing up on a surfboard look lane. coolest thing you can do is be on a surfboard in Hawaii and then you look at him and outside the fucking huge s looks sick. He is lane. Do you think that this is as good as the fake as at Tom Cruise in Valkyrie number that one that we we? Speaking of which we should. Zuckerberg's Choper Jeremy Roenick trial. That is like that ass. Listen that astle turn anyone Jeremy. If you look at Mark Zuckerberg's picture for longer than two seconds. faulk man dismissed fucking. Ass Suck who would've thought as Zuckerberg add a fucking ass. Damn I think it's ninety percent the stance that he's. Like a thick sock! There, we go up. The oil the thing I had was. Just A it's not even new segment. It's just a new thing that we need to start saying. Dwight Howard not not not see. Dwight, Howard, saying, he he did instagram live, and he said. Do I believe in vaccinations? No, I don't. That's my personal opinion, but no I don't so I think we just need to start throwing personal opinions out there for things that people really really really should believe in science I mean as anybody surprised that note Howard would have this take. He also said I didn't know that the coronavirus. Be Flying through the air, looking for people. Okay. I mean that's true. Yeah, it's probably not looking for people exactly. No, it is. They're like tiny little actually they are. Definitely are looking for host bodies, looking for bats, and took a wrong turn out crews, and they're just looking for bruce to hang out with, but my personal opinion yet. No Vaccinations Dwight Howard. That's I mean come on. We'll just cut that before you said Howard Yeah Cool. Novak's I vaccinated much Novak's over vaccinating. Much I've made I'd say give them to give them more shot. Everything shot shot. Shut fucking double. It up might as well. I love vaccine. Shots Doug's yes. R I P R I p went out a champion. We think we're about to play the game. We don't know but I this is. Funnier if you lose faulk all right well, let's see played against Dan Hogan yes. Yes, yes, twenty, twenty one, even though he's not there. Yes, or no twenty right twenty twenty. Twenty twenty twenty one. Okay, because my future, so college football will exist gas twenty twenty. All right. We will see everyone Wednesday. Stay tuned because we have billy's monologue. Overtake on me that he's going to have to do every single. His final thoughts coming up next level. Yes, my folks, so football is not my senior football. Season's not happening. So I'm living post football life right like my career is over, and actually really like messed up my like cycle of the year like so usually I'm always preparing for the fall like I work out June summer, and like Miley fluctuation wait really sort of relies on football and sort of always plan my life. Paul, but up to this point now that it's gone our know how operate. In a way, so like for example I usually get fat new winter in trimmed down by ten football seasons here, but now it's not coming. I'm not just. Going to have a reason to not get fat and it's getting really hard. I don't really know what to do. So it's Kinda weird I think I'm trying try to be like a science teacher football coach. I think that's where my dream job is as an account by US, some other ideas for judge I can't be in special forces turnip, even you in case nowadays and I wanted to be. His actually really disappoint every time like more people like recognize me gets really freaked out some camping navy seal. My other plan was. I want of you fell player and then. Navy seal. Four or five science teacher PROPO- coach. And it's a really hard time for everyone to yes.

Our on this Thursday Dan on the Dan Patrick Show and yes. My loose tooth is still loose but still attached here. I had to go to the dentist a little bit later on today. Paulie keep saying it'd be great content if your tooth fell out. Yeah it would be but I prefer to keep it in my mouth as long as possible. I woke up yesterday. Ed around three thirty and it was loose in my mouth. And then that's when I text Paulie Bali's told me it was officially three forty eight in the morning. That's confront three forty eight. In the morning I text him. I say woke up with one of my front teeth in my mouth and I thought police say aren't all your teeth in your mouth and then I was gonna say it was it fell out and so I have to go in. I believe for surgery later on today. Yes paulie and being very empathetic and thought optimal response was okay. I know there wasn't anything. Oh my God I don't like fake concern. I mean I'm obviously concerned about your tooth. I think you're going to get a great job. Ah your concern was great par. Yeah and then. I didn't have any pain medicine. Because it's right at the root of the tooth and I'm thinking okay. Okay I gotta get something here and you start to Cram advil in and you're going this isn't GonNa help and then eventually I got it semi am I attached to be able to come in today but final hour here. A few things talk about Thursday night football. It's the Texans. I have no idea who's GonNa show tonight night. Somebody has to win you but I have no idea about these two teams from week to week. Can you name other teams where you're just not quite sure who's going to show up and I'm talking about good teams because the Texans we thought maybe there the third best team in the AFC. I have no l. idea who they are. I don't think they knew who they are and the colts I love Jacoby. I think he's his underrated as you can possibly be following following Andrew Luck and nobody's clamoring for Andrew Luck. They can run the football max out with a broken hand. The colts are an interesting team when when they're healthy. I thought that was a team that can be compete for the Super Bowl. They were on my short list. And then you had the Andrew Luck stuff. I Love T. Y.. Hilton Mac has been great. I I love the offensive line defense. got a whole lot better last year. I don't know if either of these teams are any good right now but you you know. Somebody's GonNa win that that division somebody's winning the AFC south between those two. You would think who the JAGS are. The jags plan the titans this weekend. Dan I think so for the ninth time. This season doesn't feel like there are there are certain teams in certain sports. Where you go? They plan again that that would be one of those. Yes mclovin yeah. They're playing the titans then. They have the bucks chargers and raiders. All of whom. They played three times a season. They play the same game every week. It feels feels like that all right some basketball last night. You had marvelous night for Luca Danni again. Ben Simmons hit a three. I watched the clippers and the Celtics Celtics and it feels like the Celtics. It's strange as this may sound. They might be more of a title contender than the clippers right now. And I know there's load management Colli and I hope it's only load management but as people have pointed out Doug Gottlieb sent me a text this morning. Look he's playing sixty games. That is by design signed by the team and I wonder if he if he has the load management earlier in the season and then plays more on a semi regular basis or more regular basis aces as we get in the second half of the season. I know you have to great players there. I just don't know I don't know if they're a great team. Feels like the Lakers are more of the finished product than the clippers are. I know it's November and usually after after after Christmas I feel like I get a better sense of just who these teams are going to be. But if the the Lakers play the clippers right. Now I'm taking the Lakers in seven game series and Lebron is probably the leading candidate for the MVP. A lot of people have talked about Luca. Danni chick and the reason why I think he might be right there with Lebron is first of all. He's been great second of all. He's a new story and writers like that voters like that. What's the new story? But Lebron has. Reinvented himself so it's a new story. James Harden's not a new story. Greek freak not a new story even though they can have better numbers. There's than they did when they won the MVP. I don't know if there's anybody else in there. You knows greatest quiet. He's not gonNA play enough games to be considered for the MVP and shouldn't be Not that it matters to him. And then Paul George Seattle healthy he is. He looks great though. But if those two went toe to toe right now those two teams James I definitely take the Lakers yes mclovin. Anthony Davis high up in the odds to yeah and that they might split the vote there those two and then that might pave the way for if he continues this pace early. He's close to it because he had another he he almost he could have had a triple. He could who knows heads fifty points last night against grant. It's golden state but you know he did. Put up those numbers in impressive fashion. I think he'll scored golden state by himself in the first quarter. Here is Steve Kerr talking about losing by forty eight last night. Tough to lose by forty eight points but you know a break break here there and it was only would have been too so we have to look at it. Nobody caught the sarcasm. Try to be Ben and Simmons talked about his first three pointer made in the NBA asked about the reaction. You so Mario. We saw my reaction. I mean it feels good. Yeah you put working to something and it pays off. Yeah I think what he was saying is that shouldn't be a big deal. It it to Ben Simmons. He's saying it's a big deal to you the media not to me but you know what deep down it is a big deal Bensimon. Absolutely because he did put in the time to get to that moment any should have have more those moments. He should be a more competent shooter. He's not he's not a great shooter. Good shooter but that form you can get by with that and and if you're hitting thirty five percent of your shots and he needs to add that element to his arsenal. You can attack but I wanna know can you hit. Because he disappeared in the postseason last year. I didn't think he was great in the postseason and he needs to be great. Because you have that potential there with those two but it was nice. It was a nice jumper. They left him open and he did what you're supposed to do. He hit the open. Three right poll question mclovin winning half on who is the NBA. MVP has just discussing who should be the friend rather rather dance winning Lebron and then Jaanus and then harden okay and Tony Brown sent out a tweet where he apologized publicly to Mr Craft and the Patriots. I would hope hope he would do that. You know be personally behind the scenes. I don't know if he did. But that's where you call Robert Kraft and you say I just. I want to apologize for all the drama. Understand this if he was clear if he was free I think the Patriots would take him back. And I think there's a sense of desperation with the Patriots right now. I really do because you now hearing it from Brady and and I think they look at this. Offense is limited and I also think they're looking at the ravens going. Can we go toe to toe with them. Can you go toe to toe with the Kansas. Intercity cheap when you get to the postseason then. I think this is what Bella check and Brady. When Antonio Brown was first released they were not on board with this and they spoke behind the scenes about this that they wished that Robert Kraft would have allowed them to keep Antonio Brown? But you know you have this civil suit and I think that the Patriots wanted to kind of clean the slate and send him packing that Antonio Brown you know he'll send out something saying hey I'm I'm never playing again in this league and I don't think so I don't think so we're GONNA we're GonNa find out what you think about that when you're not doing anything and you want to be back on center stage because it's all about the attention and he's a wonderful player or he has been any wants to play again but I don't know how long this goes on this is litigation because now he has filed a defamation suit against the woman who filed the civil suit against him. I don't know if you're out of the league until it's over and I don't even know if the NFL is gonNA suspend him but if you said the Patriots could pick him up with three games. Two Games to go. I think they do it. I do the James. Wiseman story misses the Memphis Kid. Who in a couple of years if he was coming out of high school would go directly to the NBA so local kid and came back to play for Penny Hardaway's high school team Penny paid for his moving expenses? Penny wasn't he was affiliated the aided with Memphis as a booster because he had donated money. And that's the only reason why the NCWA caught him so now. James Wiseman has to sit out twelve games and replay repay eleven thousand dollars. Why didn't they just make it a thousand dollars a game or something but he has has to repay this and I don't know how he makes the money to repay this since he borrowed the money in the first place and he's still in college but the NCAA says the has to repay this and then once he does and it feels like you know the the timeframe was you know? Once they get into conference prince play will allow you back because the NCAA once again it's a TV show March madness TV show. It's entertainment you want. Change Wiseman to play in the NCAA YEA tournament you WanNa punish him but you want him to be able to play in the NCAA term. I don't know how he makes the money. Jay Williams Games in the mothership former professional player and dookie. He tweeted out a gofundme. You link now. I don't know can James Wiseman use the money from grow go fund me to pay back this loan. I don't know if that's legal with the NCAA. Do we know mclovin. Has Anybody Setting. I mean it's it's nice of Jay Williams to step up and volunteer with a gofundme page but can James Wiseman accepted. We'll figure it out at all of us think that it's a violation. Yeah Paulie James Go funny pages at eighteen hundred dollars right now. uh-huh in two hours okay. But I don't know if James Wiseman can take take this money and then he repays. Has He paid the loan back or is it because because because the chase young and Ohio state he borrowed money so his girlfriend could go to a bowl game any paid the money back but he still had to sit out two games James. It feels like if like if James Wiseman pays it back sooner. Is there a timeframe for this. Yeah Yeah mclovin. How do you think these lawsuits? And the fact that players are now going to be able to market their image plays with the does the. NCAA know that their days are numbered is his far amateurism goes are they taking a little lighter than they might have if this was years ago then yeah they'd probably would've sat him out for the entire year but if this was you can use your likeness kness. What's your take for somebody with Memphis affiliated with Memphis to say? Hey James Wiseman is gonNA come down and sign autographs for eleven thousand goes in for twelve thousand gic win- nly twelve thousand dollars. And then he's able to pay it back but he's still punished even if he pays it back. That's a shame but chase young the same way so so two guys who could be the number one overall picks in their respective do sports have been punished because of the taking loans here. He and the club obvious question. Do the pros Ding these guys at all. Come draft time for this now. Can you score. Yes chase young. Can you sack the quarterback. Yes I can nick. Bosa left the program and it didn't hurt his draft stock. He basically said now don on Outta here. Nobody went to quit on his teammates. There they were like Oh all right. Smart Business Decision. Remember when you had Leonard Fournette and Christian to McCaffrey saying I'm not gonNA play in a bowl game and then we're like I'll dare you quit on your team. I'm thinking this is their future you know they've given you something thing already Christian McCaffrey with the NFL. You you have to give three years whereas basketball you give six months and that's it so football. Football players are stuck basketball. Players ended a couple of years. They're going to get rid of this one and done but as it is now if a player wants to Komo Nikiel Hair Harry set out of his ball game and I went okay fine like it's almost become standard procedure. I've done everything I can Dan. I did everything I was supposed to do. And I'm going to set out a ballgame. Now would Christian. McCaffrey sat out the Rosebowl. Probably not but Leonard Fournette. What's it out a final four game? Probably not but there's more to gain. I guess from something like that but I understand. And if you're GONNA play in the Pool in Weed Eater Bowl you decide that you're not going to. I'm fine with that. Yup but Nick Bosa was the most extreme he was on a contending college football team team Ohio State. They're always contending now would he have been able to play later in the season with his stomach. Tears and whatever he had maybe he knew that there's no way who's playing at all but Ameri the time like this guy is the captain of the third ranked team in the country and he left the program. Now so James Wiseman down for a a total of twelve games here. He's already sat out one. Yeah McLeod total hindsight betcha to have been a little more cautious with his injuries. When you think about when you put it in those terms arms I think after you've had the second surgery then you know that's where you got to at least start to take inventory and go? Am I risking myself self in my future by being out there on the football field. So yeah I I would think and maybe his parents you know that you would at least say all all right is he. Is there any chance that he's going. Then he can hurt himself further and I don't know if he didn't have the explosiveness with the ankle and he got caught from behind and then you know ended up with the HIP injury Yemen. We haven't really talked about now. It's been a few days since a hip surgery. Do you have any hunch about first round second round anything for two feels like the story trying to back upward a little bit well. I think it's hard for anybody who is has a mock draft to say where they think he's going to go because you don't no no when he's cleared to play when he goes to the combine when these scouts get a chance to talk to him and see him and team doctors. Because that's that's one one of the biggest things that happens at the combine and a source said. Look we want. We want you to get in front of our team doctors. That's really important. We want to see how healthy you are and that allows us to hand. The interviewing process granted the other stuff the underwater limp underwear Olympics. That doesn't matter to us as as much as how are you in the interview process in how healthy are you and it does allow teams to have their medical staff examined somebody and he's going to be put through through the ringer to be able to find out. Just how is this. Something that's reoccurring you know. The ankle injury is that recurring here is the hip going to be reoccurring. Those would be questions I would have for too. I didn't think that he was going to be the savior for a football team. And here's another thing. What if you go to a team like the Bengals engles who don't have an offensive line? These brilliant owners these billionaires. We'll bring in a big ticket item like the colts did and for for years. I kept saying why. Have a one hundred million dollar future hall of Famer if you spend fifteen cents on the offensive line in and you saw what happened because of the damage the wear and tear earlier in his career that led to Andrew Luck. Retiring early it did. And if you're going to bring in one of these quarterbacks you gotta give them a chance to succeed Shawn Watson went into a pretty we get situation. Patrick Mahomes went into a really good situation. You know that helps with the development of these quarterback does Joe Borough go to the dolphins and if if he does dot dot dot you know that you can be a great quarterback but all of a sudden you go a situation where you don't have any weapons. Nobody's blocking I'm for you like what Cuyler Murray is done. It's been amazing. That's not a good team at all offensive line. Not Good. He's he makes Arizona his own at least competitive. Lamar Jackson went into a really good situation because they already had some pieces in place there in that helps. If you put Lamar Jackson in Buffalo. Would he be that much better than Josh Allen and I don't know do I think he's. It's better than Josh Allen. Yes by lot yes but if you go into Patrick Mahomes if he had gone into Buffalo. I don't know it's it's the team. The situation the coach the offensive coordinator all of those things factor him club There are some oxide with two. I guess which team I've seen to have been linked to two in mock draft chiefs. How how deal very low in the first round at a team that likes value the Patriots Yup for feel like the Patriot? Oh this guy's fallen. Did you see. Did you see where the Patriots. They're six and a half point favorites against the cowboys. That felt like a little so much. I'm you know I so overrated the cowboys here you. The cowboys can win in Foxborough. I think it's hotter. I'm not even a cowboy. Oh Boy Fan but I do love the potential that they have their yeah. We're going to bring back what Chris Collins Worth had to say about the cowboys because he's puzzled too and I think he mentioned everything about this except for the coaching with the cowboys in his that really the problem here but they're six and a half point. Underdogs in New England also collins were had a great comparison to replay replay a pass interference. I had not heard this is big question. Mark with the San Francisco Forty niners Sunday night. Football is Green Bay against San Francisco. So we'll bring back some of Chris Collins worse comments. Also we'll talk about the Houston Astros still on the clock waiting to be punished by the commissioner and and the ad the baseball owners meetings going on. Do you believe. Here's something. I did not know there. Were police in the lobby. If you protecting some of the owners including the Astros on from being asked questions there's police and then it's hey you and asked baseball questions. I would think stealing scientists baseball isn't it you weren't last. You weren't allowed to ask that question. We'll come back a lot of things to get to the final forty minutes. We'll see if I can keep this tooth in my mouth until then and boy that's enough to keep keep watching right who's got the under that the two comes out before it almost came out first hour almost because the vibrations tunes in my mouth and I thought that boy this is going to be a projectile. Yes I think so far. You've held it in this long. I think you're going to go. The distance make glove. I think five minutes left in the show us out in Yes boy could you try to say Ashim sub eat for me. Ah My tooth came out. That would be more interesting. That the bobby if he makes a comeback in the next thirty seconds to the NBA. Okay you're not GonNa make let me try. It seem him. The beet who I went gentle on the the be David third kill remember. It wasn't a guard for the sixers. Yes House David. I can't put any pressure up. All right we'll take a break twenty three after the hour. This is the Dan Patrick Show. Everybody's got to do this. Yes I get one from my wife. Drop off the dry cleaning pick-up some milk figure out something to get out of the house. So I can relax. Here's an idea. Let's add save. Save hundreds of dollars on car insurance. The good thing. You don't have to drop off or pick up anything. All you have to do is go to GEICO DOT COM and in fifteen minutes you could be saving fifteen percent or more on car insurance. You like extra money in your pocket. Do you like not having to drive somewhere to pick something up. This is a way to do it. It just may be the most rewarding thing on your to due list today that's GEICO DOT com eight seven seven three DP show. You'd like to join the program. Coin Paul George played together a win in overtime against the Celtics last night. Georgia twenty five eight and five. Go ahead three for the second game in a row and and Coli played following a three game absence due to a bruised knee. I'm being told there. Nothing wrong with the name. He just a little winded because he hasn't played all right. I'm GonNa take this person's word for it that there's no big issue here. But he was asked last night in that game but if they were playing the Lakers right now seven-game series. I'd take the Lakers. We talked about James Wiseman and I wonder if there's so many other outlets for these players if you WanNa go overseas now you go overseas it's a big deal because it's new to you nontraditional. Lamelo ball seems to be doing just fine. You know through through all of this with the nonsense with his dad. Juicy were Lonzo ball came out and said you know what I had a target on my back because of his dad you know if you just let the kid play and maybe he'll turn out to be a really good player but you had not the country but you had a lot of people turned on him just because they didn't like his dad because his dad was living vicariously through his kids but Lamelo has done a pretty good job and I go back to the first time I saw him in a game not highlights but in a game he was a freshman and I could see I thought he was going to be better than Lonzo because he will as a freshman great handle and he could shoe. I didn't know how Hollywood grow and he's going to be a top five pick. Probably James Wiseman is the big man at Memphis who's been suspended twelve games and has to pay back just under twelve thousand dollars but you know. I wonder if somebody takes that route and goes overseas. Because you're going to have the one in done done here in a couple of years but also I started to think about this Luca. Danni benefited by playing against professionals as a fifteen year old. Now he didn't get a brand as we like to say in this country. He got a game so instead of if he had come out of Duke he would be a brand name like Zion but he went there and played against these professionals and even with that we still feel like our basketball over here is is better than their basketball over there when it comes to college versus their pro leagues. So Luca Danni can't be that good to teams passed on Phoenix and Sacramento Kings passed on Luca Danni and Lucas former coach was the coach of the sons passed astounding this well and then fell in the lap of the Dallas Mavericks and Don-shik could end up right now if he would play this way the rest of his career. He's a hall of Famer. Pretty Amazing yes. We glove remember when there was a guys coming out of high school. Everybody Eddie said Oh. They're not learning to play the game my way because they're not going to college. It's in the old stereotype. You learn to play better when you go to college. Remember guys used to say that that used to be a thing well L.. You're going to be better in in. I think you'll learn more in high school. Because you're still evolving. You get to in college and you might be only there for six months now. You might get Tom Izzo or Calipari and they're gonNA teach you you know coach K.. But if you're playing against the pros like nothing teaches you more quicker than playing against older more experienced players so I would learn more in a situation like that than I would if I'm one and done in college because college at times looks like a you know it doesn't feel like it's that structured and it it feels like if you're GONNA learn to play in the NBA learn against pros because they got all the tricks and they're grown men that you're planning against and that was the amazing part part and look. I wasn't all in on Luca I saw the highlights and I thought he does just enough athletically to get by. But he's doing the same thing now as he did when he was playing in Europe it feels like he does he gets just enough lift to hit the jumper over six nine guy. He just quick enough to get into the lane to distribute and it feels like what does he improve upon. I'd be curious. What if somebody one of his coaches said like Rick Carlisle like what does he really need to improve upon without saying something like why defense? I don't know I'd be curious. Offensively what does he need to improve upon Yama Club. They're showing highlight reel. He never dunks the ball he he just does not. He's hitting a layup on what's up with that huge you're onto dunk everyone point. We don't get extra points for Dunkin. You're you're six eight. Everybody dunks the ball. The it's bizarre how. He's not dunking the ball. He's right there. A bird and magic made a career out of King. Those guys never dogged dog. The problem is and I fell prey to this. I thought now I could shoot. I thought if I could dunk somehow I joined an exclusive fraternity. Well I eventually learned how to dunk and it didn't matter because you're not doing it in the game like I'd be great warmups like look at me. It didn't matter sound like my coach goes. I'll be damned he can dunk bevere. trae young just told you he's never done it again. And we'll have to. Six of America's top chefs are going to be competing.

Ultimate Tooth thanksgiving not have been the Achilles heel here tanks giving Thanksgiving's giving having an Ireland me twenty five thousand dollar grand price. I'm trying to stay away from fs and TA choose tune in for the all new episode Sunday Nights. Only on the Food Network Chris Collins Worth was with this in the first hour in I touched on a variety of topics with him most notably the cowboys and I asked him. They passing team or still running team. There is no reason honestly that this team should not be. Ah that good and and you go back to the Games where they get beat and you just started going. How did they lose that game right? I mean you you just you know. How was it that they've lost? That got better across the board. I mean name linebackers. That can play the way that their linebackers complaint I mean. Jalen Smith Layton Band rash. Sean Lee is a backup up. Joe Thomas and in pass coverage situations they have great pass rushers and Glenn and Lawrence on the outside I think good up in the secondary secondary Jordan. Lewis is Kinda added a little element to that In the in the slot in there he's been a tremendous player. So what is it about their defense and since you go okay. That's not good and on offense. My God they've got arguably the best offensive line the best running back One of the top five receivers receivers in the game and Dak Prescott Red Hot. So what is it. It's keeping these guys from winning a championship and I cannot. I can't put my finger on the other than the fact that they've lost a bunch of close games. He didn't mention coaching there. And it feels like if you're going to talk about the strengths of a team. Then you would mention coaching in a big moment in a big play. Those kind of things. Because we'll you know we'll say Andy Reid or bill. Bella check you you know. And you don't have that with Jason Garrett and I don't agree with Chris. Ezekiel Elliott not the best back in the League and Jerry Jones said all you gotta keep feeding him and Jerry wants to validate his investment in Ezekiel Elliot. He's the one that paid him the money and I. I'm I'm skeptical now when I watched the cowboys. Zeke Elliott. There are times when they opened up holes that we could all run through. But I don't see that burst I don't I don't see that danger that I once did was the maybe this is an aberration because of the holdout and then coming back. I'm still waiting. Dak Jack. Prescott is held up his end of the bargain. And as Chris Collins said he may be worth more than forty million dollars and part of the reason why Dak was not in a hurry to sign. That contract is the amount of money he was making off the field. Being The Dallas Cowboy starting quarterback collins worth also talked talked about the Patriots. They're nine one but they're not feeling that confident going into this game with Dallas. I think they're so used to just dominating dating and I think they're so used to being able to do anything that they want to do and And they don't really appear to have that that sort of game-breaker break or On offense the way that they have in the past you know at least Gronk. You knew you were going to get some ability to be able to take the thing and and go down the field whether you know door said gives them a little bit of that field and you know they trade personnel. But there's not that guy that you just sit there and go. Oh Man I got. He scares me adapt out there. College worth also talked about Jimmy Garoppolo. You've got the packers and the niners on Sunday night and and I might be the last has told out here. I'm still waiting to see Jimmy can do this. On a consistent basis in a big situation here is college worth on the niners quarterback. Yeah he's made a few mistakes along the way and as a little bit of finesse thrower i. I didn't really realize that until I started watching the tape he's He kinda loves throwing on the law balls and over the top and and just sort of you know it's not one of those you sit there and watch the taping. Wow look at that throw you know fool. The thing just comes rocketing out of his hands. But he's he's really good at reading the defenses. He has a great feel for what they're doing But sometimes tries to get a little shooting. It's cost him a few interceptions this year. All right when we come back college without a great comparison he compared the review of pass interference to a Broadway. They show coming up right after this Monday. Night is podcast night. The Los Angeles Lakers. What's happening everybody? This is the official Lakers podcast. I'm your host Mike Trudell super pumped to be here flanked by earn Lars tool. You ready to go. I'm ready to go lakers. It will be a top ten defense on your team that has to start or in this case of Lebron in a D can sometimes can't pretend they're out they're both good candidates for MVP. I really like the way that this team just feels to be around the. It's I'd say it's a very clear message to stars and the navy and its everybody else on board the relationship that is developing between those two off the court and on the cohesiveness on the report I think in this case is a special case that the two of them will enhance each other. As opposed you taking away from each other be sure. Rates Subscribe and Lebron View available on Apple. PODCASTS and podcast.

So we're going to autograph those and we'll send them out Mario's all nervous. There's pockets back there. I Know Poor Mario. Somehow everybody's voice back turns into this to filling these out on. There's there's buckets. Back their calendars I think the long- longer that Mario stays around today's he starts to sound like two days. The calendar pictures are wonderful. They turned out great. Very proud of the calendar and Where we're happy to autograph those self addressed stamped on stamped envelope and we'll send those calendars also? Mario said we have a a lot of songs. Now we're doing two different versions of the traeger meet Friday zone. We'll have the meat madness coming up in March. We'll do that elimination after Christmas.

People are bringing their families over so kids were coming up and they had never seen this before cute. Cute little pig there in the treasure girl and you had some screams like no no so then I just said there's moratorium whenever kids kids arrive with their parents close the trigger derided. Tell Chad that chat now can have. I think we're having tried chips this year. Chicken or something like that. Not as bad. Where do you think Bacon comes from Timmy right there? Yeah Jalen rose will join us on the program tomorrow. Okay One more clip from Chris Collins where we were talking about pass interference review and he made an interesting comparison to a Broadway show but at the end of the day. This is the show and and what we want is a great show and in a great movie and you are in a great Broadway play. There comes a point in that Broadway. Play where you get immersed in it right where you started to really live that player or that movie. And if seventeen times during a Broadway play they shut it down because they wanted to go back and make sure they got that scene right well. It wouldn't have much magic to it anymore. You know and I think that the NFL is in danger. Just a little bit of having that happen to that I agree. I had not heard that comparison. That's why I wanted to bring it back. Yes He. I would agree with that a lot more. If the game wasn't constantly stop and start game game stops every seven seconds and so. It's not like there's like this smooth flow like where that's just constantly playing and running around and then it stops every seven seconds for a new play Vistan sports history would he have fallen wall and got two of them.

Tue. 05/07 The Sanders Cable Access TV Show

"We ride home for Tuesday may seventh twenty nineteen. I'm your host Chris Collins today, a look at Sanders and his old cable access TV show, a new poll shows by pulling support away from pretty much everybody else and all about warrants tax proposal on the ultra wealthy. Here's what you missed today from the campaign trail. I today from nineteen eighty six to nineteen eighty eight. Well, Bernie Sanders was mayor of Burlington Vermont he had his own cable access TV show, and is it on YouTube. Well, you bet it is. It is now. Anyway, the show was called Bernie speaks the mayor show, and it's a profound time capsule. It is very nineteen eighty six to nine hundred eighty eight it aired on then counties channel seventeen which is the cable access channel for Burlington Vermont, but not just any cable access channel CCTV was devoted to government access. So it was looking for content that wasn't just like airing city council meetings and stuff at politico magazine. Holly author bind did a deep dive on how Sanders created a show. What happens in it? And how that changed him as a politician author by and watched every single episode on tape which is saying a lot because it aired every week or two for a couple of years and. Then her magazine paid to have the show's digitized and put up on YouTube under a creative Commons license. So now, you can go and watch the show to there are fifty one episodes, and there's a link in the show notes if you're curious reading now from Rabin's peace quote for dozens of hours Sanders, interviews townspeople and lets them interview him he gives speeches, but he also does all the day-to-day things a mayor. Does he talks with his police chief, he visits the local schools? He chats up elderly constituents, he even plants trees well before the Truman show or reality TV, and even longer before we grew accustomed to learning on Twitter and Facebook, what our friends in our celebrities ate for breakfast Sanders. Basically made a lo fi analog attempt at live streaming his day job, and quote and having watched a few episodes myself, I have to agree there is relatively little editing here, it's basically a camera person and Bernie Sanders walking around with a microphone anyway, Audubon goes onto explain the. The show actually started on AM radio. It was called the mayor speaks aired on w j o y after the radio show was cancelled Sanders. Took his message to an even more popular medium television now in many segments Sanders rails against television itself, while he is making a television show in one episode near the end of the show's run. He speaks at an event alongside ABBIE Hoffman and David Dellinger. Dellinger was another member of the Chicago Seven Sanders attributes a line to Hoffman saying television is the major drug problem in America today. Now, he's referring to mass media to be clear, but he specifically talks about local media to which in those days was in the process of consolidating while also exploring new formats on cable, this is one of the rare episodes in which we see Sanders give a speech rather than wandering around and talking to people. Let me play a short segment of that speech, and which she talks about a series of ideas that still echo today in the Sanders campaign more than three decades later, although a slightly. Different points. He talks about the ninety nine percent. He talks about presidential politics, and he talks about the influence of money on elections. But more than that he's talking about the media. Listen to this clip and hear how Sanders has and has not changed since nineteen eighty eight. Some of you may have seen in the free press today that I think it was Champlain valley union high school. They had a vote five million dollar bond issue headline should be ninety nine percent of the people say no one percent of the people came out of. Ninety percent of the people stayed home on a boat over finding dolls half, the people in America, don't vote in town meeting and for my despite all the media myth. Most people have given up on the political process. Headline American people give saying we don't trust any politician. I doubt it. I doubt story today. Jesse Jackson running one of the most courageous presidential campaigns in American history. You're not gonna see outspent ten to one in the Hampshire. A black man going all white state talking about a message of bringing working people together and environmentalist together attempting to build a movement that this country desperately needs. It is a story of tremendous was of you people trying to do something extrordinary with no money taking on the whole world. It's a story that the right about fifty years from today today, it's hard to see on the news. You got people spending twenty million dollars buying it buying the president's. I think what I would with is simply this the media itself. And I want to congratulate van going hosting this thing, I the media itself is important a political issue as exists. There's a link in the show notes the entire speech for full context note that when he thanks the vanguard near the end he's talking about the vanguard press, which is the local weekly paper that sponsored the event. And by the way, he wasn't always praising those folks either. Now, one more vital segment from the honor by piece, quote, Jeff Weaver, a longtime adviser, and friend. Sanders says the experience of making Bernie Sanders speaks with the community taught Sanders how to use his Homebrew media to win policy fights to standards use the show to make the case for an array of left wing proposals from a progressive income tax to a national healthcare system. He proposed a new kind of low in that would allow elderly people to put off paying property taxes until they sold. Their home promoted his administration's decision to put a local hospital on the property tax rolls and demanded the condominium, developers build more affordable housing. When Bernie Sanders became mayor. He took on the entirety of the local establishment the local mainstream media. Was dead set against him says Weaver who was the campaign manager for Sanders 2016 run for the White House. I think you understood correctly that if he was going to have a way to talk directly to people about what he was trying to accomplish in Burlington. He was going to have to do that himself, and quote, so read the article for more analysis on how Sanders has used media over the decades. And how that experience changed as he sought ever-higher offices. Now, the other fun thing is that auto buying pulls out some of the quirkiest moments from the show. This is notable not just because they're funny, although they are because they reveal a side of Sanders. We don't see as often today there is a goofy side he tries out riding a horse in one episode. He hangs out with punk teams and shopping mall and another and whether you're Santer support or not there is now a treasure trove of his early media online, and it's worth watching or a least reading auto buying summary to understand how that experience shaped his attitudes toward the media today.

Inonu morning console poll released late yesterday. We get our latest look at what's going on in the primary field. This will not be a surprise to anyone. But Joe Biden is doing great at forty percent and his high level of support comes at the expense of other top candidates in the field. So there are several ways to look at this poll. One is that if you take all of Joe Biden support it is the same as the next four candidates combined. Those candidates are Bernie Sanders. Elizabeth Warren, comma, Harris and Buddha judge another way to look at it. It's by seeing how the numbers have changed since the previous week's polling on Twitter. Steve Kornacki did that math for us in his tweet. He shows that Biden is up four points. From last week. Sanders is down three Warren is down one Buddha. Judges down to and everybody else in the top eight spots is unchanged. Others much lower down. The ranking gainer lose a point here there Kornak also points out that Biden is. Polling better among black voters than white voters. This is a key constituency for Democrats, and it lines up with our coverage last week when hearing about black voters in Pennsylvania, the last from chronology is that this is the second week in a row, the Buddha judge has lost ground and that comes after five weeks in a row gaining points. So this is the part of every polling segment where I say, hey, it's super early in the pulling at the stage, mostly reflects name recognition. Well, good news. Morning console. Also did polling on name recognition. Specifically check the Lincoln the show notes to see that in great detail daybreak down those results by candidate into four categories which are favorable heard of but no opinion never heard of. And unfavorable right now Bernie Sanders has the highest unfavorable rating at eighteen percent. But he also has a massive favorable rating of seventy three percent. He is beaten in favorability. Only by Biden who gets seventy six percent. But Biden also has a fifteen percent unfavorable rating. So basically, these two candidates are the same statistically, they're very very close in terms of favorability. And unfavorability and everybody has heard of them one more take away from this poll has to do with the number of candidates where voters either have heard of the candidate. But don't have an opinion or they've simply never heard of the candidate at all. Now, this is where the debates and the media an ads will play a key role over the coming months now, for instance, ticket candidate like Amy klobuchar who is in the middle of the pack in that favorability poll she has a thirty percent favorable rating an eleven percent unfavorable rating, but just under sixty percent of people either haven't heard of her or have no opinion. So in theory that's enough for her to beat the top candidates. If she becomes well known and captures that big chunk of people who don't know her. The same is true for a bunch of other candidates. The two big ones to watch for our Elizabeth Warren and co. Mola Harris who are right up there behind Sanders and Biden they have enough of that unknown gap in the middle that they could catch up rather quickly. If voters were exposed to them, and if those waters liked what they heard. I've covered a few of Senator was with Warren's policy plans on this show at an each case. She has specified the cost of the policy and how she would pay for it for the most part she proposes to pay for new policies by taxing the assets held by ultra wealthy Americans. But what does that mean? And how does that work and does that affect you and me, well, fortunately warrant has laid out all of those details and put the plan together with the help of communists who were legitimate experts in the field. So here's how warrants plan would work. It's important for us to be clear that this is not an income tax. Most of us are used to paying income tax on our paychecks. Instead, Warren, a saying, let's tax the stuff you already own if you're wealthy got it. Okay. So say your household owns assets worth more than fifty million dollars. First off. Congratulations. You're doing. Awesome. Welcome to the zero point one percent of Americans second. Warren wants to impose a two percent annual tax on any assets, you have over fifty million dollars. So if you have precisely fifty million bucks worth of mansions and stocks in yachts and stuff. Nothing changes for you same. If you have less than fifty million bucks. But let's imagine you have fifty one million dollars worth of stuff. Now, you're gonna pay two percent of that one million dollar over the amount over fifty million dollars, and you're going to pay it every year, so grabbing my calculator here that's a Bill of twenty thousand dollars. So your families taxes? If your family has fifty one million dollars worth of assets would go up by twenty thousand dollars per year. So that's the main part there is a second tier two. Warren's plan though, if you have more than one billion dollars you'd pay that two percent rate on all the assets from fifty million up to nine hundred ninety nine point nine nine million. And. Then now you're paying three percents on every dollar over that first billion dollars. This is a form of progressive taxation. Meaning that as your net worth rises, the higher tiers of wealth. Have more tax applied to them it progresses in the same way? Your wealth does affecting wealthier people more than the rest of us. Okay. So economists estimate that the two percent tax would affect about seventy five thousand households in the US and the three percent tax. The billionaire tax would affect fewer than one thousand households. In other words, America has fewer than one thousand billionaires and Warren would like them to pay a little more. So what's the core? Logic behind this kind of plan what has to do with what's called an effective tax burden which basically means the actual percentage you pay in taxes. When compared to the stuff you have in the income you make reading from an article in Barron's, quote, the basic argument for the taxes that addresses an inequity in the existing. System the ultra rich pay lower effective tax rates than many other Americans because their income takes the form of rising asset values the tax rate on capital gains is much lower than what the typical worker pays on his or her labor income, but those gains are taxed only when assets are sold so many of the richest people minimize their tax burden even further by borrowing against their wealth. According to communist Gabriel's upman, the proposed tax would raise the total effective burden at the very top of that. It's tradition from three point two percent of NetWorth to four point three percent. This tax obligation still be lower than the average burden of seven point two percent of net worth paid by most other Americans and quote, one important note, there Gabriel's C'mon was a key part of the team that designed warrants tax plan. He is also according to Barron's, quote, one of the world's experts. On the economics of international tax, avoidance and tax evasion. And quote, we'll get back to why that matters in a moment. All right. So how would the government figure out what assets you have and actually tax them? Like, if I were a billionaire, wouldn't I find out some kind of cool way to get around this? Well, Warren's men and the rest of their team have thought about that challenge. A lot for one thing ultra wealthy people tend to have two broad classes of assets real estate, which is already subject to property tax. And it's pretty hard to hide because it is physical like houses and stuff and the other item is investment portfolios. That is where it gets interesting. I would have thought those investments would be easy to hide or obscure or do some weird tricks with but reading from Barron's again, quote Zuckerman estimates that roughly eighty percent of the assets of the Oltra rich are in liquid assets with unambiguous market values, even those who drop hundreds of millions of dollars on -partment. Allocate less than a tenth of their overall asset portfolio to real estate besides growing databases of real estate transactions and listings should make it easier to assess valuations in real time in an unbiased manner, and quote, and that's whereas experience in tax evasion becomes very useful. He knows how people today get around this stuff and designed the program to deal with it. The program would beef up the IRS is ability to spot this specific money moving offshore. Remember, we're dealing with known set of households and not very many of them. Also, a very wealthy person tries to renounce their US citizenship and move away. That's fine warrants plan with take forty percent of their wealth above fifty million dollars on their way out of the country. One last thing on this plan and the thinking behind it as the New York Times reminds us Chris rock has a standup it about the distinction between being rich and being wealthy. And it helps remind us that there is a difference. Quoting Chris rock here. People go what's the difference? Well, here's the difference. Shack is rich the white man signs. His check is wealthy, and quote, and that's a key idea here to end the segment the Warren plants Zion to tax wealth, the kind of wealth that has held by the zero point one percent of people who own say basketball teams or giant businesses or whatever. This proposal is not about taxing income, not even rich people's income. In other words, the taxes on shacks paycheck aren't going to change only when shat grows a fortune to the point where he's wealthy and maybe like owns the team would warrants plan actually affect him. Well, that's it for another pursuit of the primary ride home. I have been your host, Chris GAN's. You can always find me on Twitter at Chris Higgins coming up later this week more from comma Harris on the trail likely some new candidates entering the race. Yes. Even now a bunch of analysis about how the DNC is going to deal with this giant field and the twenty person cap on the debates and even more thank you for listening. And I will talk to y'all tomorrow.

The 75O: Cowboys Beat Eagles | Standout Performances | Who Is This Team?

"Welcome back to seven. Five seven five two times Super Bowl champion, Tony Casillas. And Tony I haven't said in a long time happy victory polo Monday to you my friend happy victory polo happy Victor the Cowboys. And I know one thing right now, some people I know it's Veterans Day saw be remiss if I didn't we didn't wish all the have the better happy this tremendous day. How much how much respect what they do for us to fight for freedom. First responders firefighters police officers. But while I know one thing it is a holiday, but in Philadelphia right now, there is a lot of bad. Hateful people in the brotherly love city. Totally, you know, by the way, we didn't really mention this tweet it about it during the game. But I thought it was actually really appropriate that this game that the game on on Veterans Day on Sunday night took place in Philadelphia. The only thing in you played there that would've made a greater is if it had been at the, you know, I mean, it was it was the perfect place to host that I feel like that game should be there. Every year on Veterans Day. Oh, yeah. Start off great. You had former the first first lady and President Bush. Komo. Oh, you know in involved in the opening ceremony. So they had everything the the patriot to them. And you know, again, it's a it's you look at it is a lot of history there. But you know, the history of that game right there in itself. And then we talked about this on Instagram live there is there really chipped before the game teams don't like each other, especially this in the seats over into the fans, but you know, what? And I said this was talking about that this morning. So almost like, you know, we had the dead coach walking. And now we get a stay of execution for Jason Garrett. And again, you gotta give a lot of you gotta give a lot of credit to the players because again to be able to just get beat up the whole week about no one expecting them at one point. I guess when the game opened up the eagles are about eight point favored and Dallas went in there, and Tucker, Tom, and you gotta give them respect for that -absolutely. I think they opened at seven maybe seven and a half line that. It grew as you mentioned. There's a lot Don Packer the Dallas Cowboys getting their fourth one of the season Sunday night in Philadelphia twenty seven to twenty their first win on the road this season there. I went on the road actually since they won in Philadelphia in their final game of two thousand seventeen. There's a lot of sort of cool little details. Like that in this game. The Cowboys you know, I had five bold predictions for this game. One of them was that they would break seventeen points. -fensive -ly we talked as you mentioned on Instagram live. We both said it as a prediction. But I really I didn't think it would happen. They did they scored twenty seven points. They had over four hundred total offensive yards Zeke was a beast. And I think we have to start though, telling you when we unpack this game right now with I referenced this as being the late in Vander ash game. We'll look back on this. This was his announcement to the world as a star linebacker in the NFL late in Vander ash. The Cowboys I Ron rookie linebacker was on. Real against the eagles. He was there's a couple of plays on the third and short got off the blocks and was able to get out and make a big play for loss. Put them in the fourth and long, and it was just a disliking around. And again, I said this last week in maybe the titans is just credited, and they maybe they're a lot better than we gave him credit for. But it didn't seem to me they were kind of out of sorts. But again, the guy is a he's a rookie and just as capability being able to cover into Sunder stand the nuances that's one thing about being physical linebacker being able to have the range. And you know, you kinda I don't wanna I don't wanna I wanna tap the breaks a little bit. But he kinda reminds me of younger Brian Urlacher because he's fast. He's long he can run. But yeah, I mean, the long him Jalen Smith. I mean, you got to be pretty amped up when you look at the way those two guys ball thirteen tackles one interception. This tremendous perform. Silence. And right now is probably one of the front runners for rookie of the year. You know, you mentioned the interception. That was great. And I think that kind of woke everybody that kinda got everybody excited, but you started off talking about it that tackle it was third and two. And I everybody thought eagles we're going to confer in. That was just unreal Carson Wentz dumped it off to Clement and in late and just I mean shoe string of autistic sorta tackles, and I feel that that's unfair. Because when you say shoestring it implies that they barely got that tackle. There was no barely about that that tackle that effort to get. There was unreal. This guy looks like the Cowboys carved him out of a mountain, you know, like they went to mount linebacker and just carved a piece off, and that's what in Vander ashes. He I mean, you know, it was the game against the Steelers two years ago were Dak Prescott sort of cemented himself as the starting quarterback of the Cowboys later that week Tony Romo would give his foot. Baldomero taco speech. And so it was this game in Philly. What I think late and kind of took the mantle from Sean Lee is the Cowboys star linebacker. So what I have learned. Tony is that if the Cowboys play a game in Pennsylvania, some sort of torch is going to be passed because we've seen that. Now. I just I I kind of feel bad for Sean Lee. But late in Vander is a monster. I agree. I mean, I think he certainly in the running for defensive rookie. Yes. And it's amazing all the great linebackers that come out of the state of Pennsylvania. Penn state. There's a lot of players that really gun on the NFL made a name for themselves in very again. It's it's so there's a security when it comes to these two linebackers. Jalen Smith, I think we all forget the route that he's gone through the road to where he's at now just watching him play this flying around in a times as being able to shoot the gap and create havoc. I mean, there's a couple times on the game in Chris Collins. I think does a tremendous job, but we ran down at the same spread. I mean, there's not too many guys that can do that to build ahead to guys like that that are very athletic build to cover and again that play. I just don't think people realize how special play that was whenever I mean, it looked like he had it set up linebacker head to lineman out out out in the flat. And it looked to me it was going to be a huge game gain. But football players are able to, you know, great players Bill to recognize things like that they have nuance and really know where the ball's going, and again, this was able to get underneath the blockers into snake huge play that the intercepts in that play right there think really law that was the game changer that to me that was what gave the Cowboys opportunity to win. Because if they go on and get I down who knows what the outcome of the game event. Absolutely. I mean, I think Lleyton is the story coming out of the game. I think the secondary story is Zeke Elliott one hundred. Fifty one rushing yards was huge in the passing game. Huge in sort of the protection game had had a moment where he threw two blocks on one play. It was unreal. This was what it really felt. Like was the Cowboys finally said, oh crap. Well, you know, we we have no choice, but to rely on our best player and the whole world kinda like we've said all of it's like, yeah. That's a good idea. Maybe you should rely on your best player offensively and Zeke. Carey this team. He was a man on a mission to hurdle was unreal. But I mean, Zeke was a man on fire last night against the eagles. I just and I made a common during the game. That is not fair to have that much athleticism. Thank the guy full pads that big and the top trae Sullivan's head and in stride and bleak guess extended that play another ten or fifteen yards. And it's just it's so effortless in you know, what the thing that the really frustrating thing Jay's with this with this team is why do they not have that philosophy every game? And I understand, you know, you look at Philadelphia you really thought it'd be the beginning. They were going to try to blitz the hell out of you. Jim sorts going to try to blitz the hell out of him and just line guys up there and create a lot of issues you'll sack Martin I think everyone was holding their breath when he went out of the game that could have been a huge loss. But I just think in why can't they just go ahead. And I know I think Amari Cooper will. Maybe that's think that that's the only hall pass. I would say that maybe allow because a Mark Cooper hasn't been in office Bill. But think about some of the place. I mean, they go. You saw the desperation a fake punt an option. Go going forward. And really, really look. What are we got to lose? But for me would your team. Just don't understand. Where's that? Where's that ban? Why does it take desperation a game? Like this to all of a sudden empty the toll box. Yeah. No, I agree. And specifically the touched on the deck through Zeke that was motion on that play. There was you know, some some creativity. And it got Zeke open space that was able to find him in. Hey, lo and behold, well, you can score on plays like that. Wow. I wonder why the rest of the NFL does it. I agree with you that it, certainly, you know, sobering. Or you know, somber frustrating that it takes the eleventh hour to get these guys the dance. But nonetheless, I think that Jason Garrett specifically deserves out hell of a lot of credit. And I know I mean this. I've said this a lot since the game ended this doesn't necessarily. In fact, it doesn't it also Jess Jason Garrett should necessarily be retained into. Two thousand nineteen doesn't prove that. He's now. Great coach, nothing is different. The world is not a different place Monday morning, Monday afternoon than it was on Sunday evening before this game kicked off. But it does say we talked a lot about how his Cowboys do not quit on him. And there was no quit in this team. You mentioned SaK Martin goes down. They found a way to battle back through that. And they had to get creative. They had to get aggressive. They ran a fake punt. I think that last night against the eagles. Jason Garrett was very good coach. Although I do agree that a lot of it was driven out of desperation well in and that's good. I mean desperation, I think you have to there's got to be an urgency in look it's hard to win a national football. But sometimes the degree in which they lose football games. You're just kind of scratching your head. It's it's it's like riding the Texas giant. It's a roller coaster. You don't know how you know. How fast arrives gonna be there's going to be better the second time or third time? Whatever the case may be and you know, for me, that's very. It's very perplexing. Thank that. This offense has some capability. And you know, I did like the fact that you know, were they able to do. The eagles. They redesignated second ever injuries. And you saw what happened? And that's the thing about getting back to Zeke and be able to run the football. Now, you had a Mark Cooper, you get into this deal threat where you know, what you gotta pick your poison. And when they when they line guys up around line of scrimmage, guess, what able to find separation and get the ball what for eight different receivers. And of course, the gaming when are we seeing that? So what's what's what's what's very very a very positive thing to see that? And let them again to make just to see that there. There's some heart there and some guts, and as you mentioned the play for your coach and play for your jobs because I think that that goes on like that mentality in the desperation mill, you know, hopefully, some good things are gonna come out. We've talked about late in Zeke, so far I think I think Zach Martin deserves at the very least and Adeboye from what he did. But somebody that was just so impressive. Didn't have the biggest box score of all time, but Amari Cooper, and I think and I I understand why people are upset at the Cowboys gave up a freshman jam pick. Now, your futures a little bit compromised, but there's no denying from what we've seen even though it's just two games that Amari Cooper is absolutely worth that price. Amari Cooper is without question. A number one wide receiver. He is such an incredible route runner he's a beast getting open getting separation. Yet Emmylou had six catches for seventy five yards against the eagles. But it wasn't about that. It was about his influence in his impact on the game. What Amari Cooper brings is unreal. For the Cowboys. When you think about who they've been you know, you look at it before Mark Cooper the Cowboys on third down were thirty one point eight percent in terms of their third down conversion since then they are forty eight point one percent. They went from twenty eight in the NFL to fourth in the NFL. That's just unreal. When you consider the impact of one player. Yes. And that happens a lot of NASA football league because you really need someone again, if you're going to double down on you're going to really try to double down on more Cooper than that means you got to put more guys outside the box. So then what are you going to try to run the football with with Zeke? And you saw the facts of Alan Hearns, you know, to me last night made a couple of tremendous catches and was was able. Doc was able to find him to reception for forty yards, and you mentioned Amari Cooper. It's not real sexy. But still at six percents for seventy five yards. But it was all what he did to the offense to really kind of open it out up, and and really just kind of make things a lot easier. And you know, that's the influence, and that's the that's the reason why you bring really big time players there that can stretch. I'm always impressed by Mark Hooper around a way, he runs rats. I mean, he takes personal correct separation. And again, we and we mentioned this yesterday where we're going over kinda hashing what the Cowboys need to do for for other players. Get involved opens up Alan Hearns and Kobe's Lii in again, all these other guys they were targeted and caught balls last night. Something else we talked about on Instagram live. And by the way, we do plan on doing that a couple times this week as well was how the Cowboys to win this. Game. They were going to have to. I don't want to say catch some breaks. But things we're going to have to happen. I think something like the late in Vander. Asian session was going to have to happen. You're going to have to have sort of some fluky ish things that went your way and that happened, and I think one of the most important plays of this game. And I about this on Monday was the Michael Gallup screen pass on third down at the end of the first half in the county. It was gigantic. The Cowboys came out with a three point lead in about a minute left in it felt kind of. Well, can these days really go down and score? There had been no touchdowns in the game to that point. And Dak Prescott took a sack on first down. You cannot do that. That was a horrible mental mistake and the Cowboys came out and they've ran the ball with Zeke on second down on second twenty three. I believe it was that looked that smell that completely was totally DeKalb within let's just run this ball. Let's get the eagles to burn their time outs. Hopefully, we get to have time with three point lead. And then on third and long. They gotta Michael gala for a screen pass. And what happens he picks? Up a huge first down that keeps the drive alive. The end of scoring touched on that play is so much about why they want and they needed. They hadn't had plays like that those just sort of. I don't wanna call them mucky. But those plays that flip games, and that was one of them that Michael gala played at to the point where talking about that. Is it happened without the influence and impact of Amari Cooper? Well, you're you're looking at how the eagles lined up for that. And they only in I don't know if the RPO's during the course of the game, but it seemed to me they were just out of place, but it really didn't matter because you're expecting us third and what fifteen third long, so you're not going to try to give up to fill str- screens draws. But again, I mean you need a little football luck. But the execution on the play. I thought the execution and the place a lot of the screens. And a lot of plays were really shocked last night. And Absopure example, there you got to make get those chunk yards and explosive plays and to be able to do that. When that down a distance where you know the. Percents. Very low to execute. Not only smoke get ten yards. But to get a huge play like that as you mentioned right before the half. I thought that was huge. And I thought that was very to me. That's what you need. That's what you that's how you grow your your character. Not only you care to. But the confidence you have. And again, you're on a real team like that the reigning Super Bowl champions. They hate you the fans and to be able to make a statement like that you like, okay, we'll take that. That's how it's going to be all night. Oh, it was picked up twenty five yards. I just could not if you had asked me to list one hundred possible outcomes of that play in the moment. Michael gal, picking up twenty five yards have been very very near the bottom in agree that you need football out. I'm a big believer that you need brakes. You know, it's it's a lot. It's a game played with an oblong shaped ball. It's going to bounce different ways to the point of Dak Prescott dropping in the second half. And. Look at that. That's right up to that could have been a huge big play for the Philadelphia goes. And yet he was able to catch the ball. One hop bounce and build it thought away. I mean that could have been another turning point in the game. Absolutely. And so I totally believe that you gotta catch breaks. I think that's a big part of football. And when the Cowboys beat the lions, for example, it felt like they caught some breaks and they got by that game by the skin of their teeth. You know, they just barely beat the lines. And I know that it was only a seven point victory. And I know it was still kinda dicey at the end. But this win felt like the Cowboys to a small degree put the eagles away. This felt maybe for the first time this season. I know they put up forty points on the Jags. But I mean, it was the Jaguars from this felt like the Cowboys dominated the eagles. And I think that's why we all feel so good about it Monday. This I really believe this is the most dominating performance when all of the context involved as you mentioned you're on the road or the reigning Super Bowl champs coming off their bye. They're bringing frigging coffins to the stadium for your funeral and everything I mean, this was a huge flex by the Dallas Cowboys, which nobody saw coming. I know that locker room. It must have been just off the chain. Because again as the player in your hearing that all week long, and no one's giving an opportunity everybody's right in your off to be able to come on the road. And in the poll, get a ws, just amazing and. The defensive side of the ball. Whether it was by Jones, whether with Cheeto making a big huge place guys making big plays all over the place, and you know, the defense, and you know, the defenses played well this year. I mean, there's times when they think think the biggest breakdown we saw in the last game which was the box when they gave up seventy eight percent on third down. That was just that's an anomaly never hardly ever see that. But they really needed to get back to making big plays. And again, you could see the energy elevate. You could see that you know, you haven't seen this. Now, I will say this. Of course the game whenever the Cowboys. It kinda remind me against the titans whenever they got turnovers. They're only able to you know for Phil goals. Thank okay. We'll, but I just saw this during the course of game, especially when they will the execute on that third and long and that big screenplay. You saw the the eagles defense deflate. And you just really kind of saw them when they had players go down. Then I think for them. They just the Cowboys could do is do anything that they want to do against them? I agree. I mean, the late in Vander interception that resulted in only three points disea- Elliott amazing hurdle that resulted in only three points. You know, you think about it. Those are frustrating things because you know, you want to cash in on gifts and not that disease is actually that Zeke thing was a gift. But I mean, especially if you score touchdowns off turnovers. That's how you win in the NFL you touched on she thought maybe had his best game. As a pro in Philly, and I'm curious to. Hear your thoughts on while. We were on Instagram live that was on the couch. Needless got into their tussle before the game. I'm sure they would just shake hands and asking each other about net flicks and whatnot. I don't think there was any ill will I I would I would guess that's just my personal opinion. But Chris Sean was involved on that and Krista chard was kinda in on the shoving, and the, you know, the ruckus, and I I'll say what would that do for you as a player someone who's been there? If you're coach was in there just getting in the the line of battle, and what not just any old game like as we've mentioned on the road against the world champs, the eagles, etc. If your coach was in there scrapping, would that not I have to believe that that will get you? So I think you're like an umbilical cord with your coach, and they'll for Chris Rashard, first of all I like, he's very animated. He's got a lot of energy in the sidelines. This polar opposite of Rodman. Which that's okay. But we all Chris are, you know, to me is interjected is energy. And I think for him, you know, when you see guys talking smack to your your family, and your we're family, you're a football family and someone's saying something the family like a look I'm gonna I'm gonna come up. I'm gonna stick up from big brother or my son. Hey, you're part of the family. And I think he kind of you know, he reads at a mo-, where's that emotion on a sleeve, and I think it's great. I think it really shows the passion that these guys have different elevations of energy that you've really noticed this year in geysers respond to that. And in look it's opposed to be like that supposed to be where you don't like each other. Now, I know there were tip before the game. But I didn't see anyone like sign in each other's jerseys after the game. I did be kind of hard for me to turn that switch off considering who. It's it's Philadelphia Eagles. But that's that's my old man's take on that. But you're right. I mean, Chris Rashard. To me is passionate. He goes to get involved. I think the players feed off that type of energy. Do you think there's any way? This was one theory floated out that this was calculated by Christmas shard that he may be knows his guys kinda knows the environment. You're talking about and said to himself. You know, what I I'm going to do something. I'm going to do something that gets these guys hyped. I'm gonna go in there. And you know, I don't know that I could see that. I could see a coach doing. I don't doubt someone coach doing that. I think, you know, the best leaders in the best coaches are ones uncon- subconsciously. Like, look, you know, maybe I need to do this maiming alive. Fighter light a fire under their ass and realize, hey, guys, this is the rivalry. You know, Christmas was was out Seattle. Some he's seen his kind of his robbery games. And he's he's just an emotional guy. And sometimes you got to be able to trigger that that button and push that button. Like, he'll let's let's get more of the blaze of where we're just creating big. Fire no pun intended. Because I know all the fires in California. But my point is is that you gotta lifeline to fire net emotional, but it was definitely a tempo setter, and it really felt like the Cowboys again, I don't wanna say from start to finish. I feel like that's giving them too much credit, but it felt like from start to finish they were somewhat in control. It might not have been good control. But it was somewhat in control. It was like they would driving on the bumpiest road of all time. But they still technically were in charge of the car. You know what I mean? Right, right. I know exactly because we watch this team the whole year. So we that's kind of our, and it's like, we think will something we can't they can't close it out the can't score. And was we mentioned earlier when they were to get those turnovers. You felt like, you know, the score was not indicative of how how dominating the Cowboys were one point. They just couldn't put them away. They just couldn't that last nail in the coffin. Just couldn't hammered home. There was a tweet. There's a guy that does some great work for our sister site at SP nation. The eagle side bleeding cremation Benjamin so lack and he had a tweet during the game. When the eagles are trying to score late. He said, you know, this has to be the last eagle score of the game that they have to scored here and tied and take an overtime go for two. He said the the eagles can't give the Cowboys the ball back. And I read that. And I thought my God. I I was I was stunned. I was like that's that this fair. You know, it's I mean, I don't know what happened the fourth quarter was unbelievable for the Cowboys offensive. The they scored two touchdowns. And I know that that's a really low bar to set. But I mean, that's something that we hadn't really thought that they had the ability to do they were able to not just score touchdowns. But the second one particularly was vintage Cowboys. It was control the ball drain the clock feed Zeke break their backs. I mean the Cowboys offense. Was kind of on fire. I feel weird saying it, but it really was was a frenzy because you know, as we mentioned earlier in the show that the Cal excuse me the eagles. They were decimated by injuries in the secondary. And they ended up losing another Darby there other defensive back as had a tremendous year. So now, they're down with a bunch of young guys. Well, we saw earlier in the game. They were lining up in a line scrimmage and they run running blitzes because Jim sports, that's what he likes to do. Well, then there had to play man to man. And so that was working with then you saw it just kind of deflated because all of a sudden they couldn't line five guys hit me Russ with four guys and the Cowboys. This lockdown on the Cowboys when they got into four man rush. You know that press got a ton of time as well the football. And then what would they then they were disabled to kind of pick whatever they wanted to do because you know, the eagles their defense Israel. I mean, they could not do those exotic blitzes. They can all sudden hit the gaps. And create havoc in. That's what they that's what they live on. And you know to me that was a lot about execution. And that's when the Cowboys said, you know, what we got our foot on throat. They can't there's no longer. They got they got a rush four guys. And they're so worried about getting beat in you know, in the secondary. And they were every guy every guy was out in running routes was getting open never separation because they were so afraid of getting beat. So that was the best case scenario for the Cowboys, and we have not seen that going back to the dual threat throw the football and run the football Ming Zeke again, as you mentioned was this ridiculous to a beat. I mean, they can stop. You. Can I was glad to see them? Throw the ball. Tim getting involved in the passing game. I think the only time we saw the Cowboys take their foot off the gas especially in the fourth quarter was the final possession after the late in Vander tackle. And then he's stopping Zakar. It's it really. It was obviously the Cowboys said we'd do not. Want to do anything at all aggressive on this possession where fine just running the ball three times and draining some clock and getting the ball back to the eagles and playing defense. But I mean, I if you I think they certainly did kind of have their their foot on the eagles throat. It looked like they did a great job of capitalizing on that. It was a very unto thousand eighteen Cowboys like sort of game to to sort of get back to crediting and isolating particular players in particular things there was you mentioned that Martin went out and in credit to him. He's a beast coming back certainly looked very painful what he was dealing with. But the Cowboys obviously without Travis Frederick Joe looney had a great game. But yeah, I did too. They were down Connor Williams coming into this game. They rookie lymph guard and eggs of your sewer AFI low played left guard for the Cowboys. And I thought exhibits to appeal had a great game. I mean, he had to go head to head with Fletcher Cox for most of the night, and he did not collapse. I thought. That was just a hell of a performance bags to be life. In Colombo deserves a lot of credit Hudson. How your guy I mean to Cowboys manage to really put together an offensive line played kind of complete game. I thought I thought they played exception. Well, considering the circumstances. And again, you know, you lose Travis Frederick. I mean, that's you know, that's happened a long time ago, and you just move on and hopefully he'll continue his football career. But yeah, I thought you know, Conaway two main still has some growing pains to get through. And I thought I thought was able to replace him with someone differently. Dispel like, there's a little bit more solid inside in for me. I mean, there's a reason why didn't Jill I thought he played exception. Well, there's a couple of times they isolated as blocks. And I think he's really kind of get the competence in the flow of the game. And really, you know, some of the reach blocks that he did when guys like like to two men over. I thought was. Really impressive and very athletic and fill like that there. There's a by there now. And hey, anytime a player like Zico Alec average what eleven yards per touch. I mean my gosh. No, what does that? What does that say? I mean Levin yards for cats or per touch. I mean that is phenomenal. What that tells us store this game on the offense side of the ball. It really does. And that's why I think the feel of are so big what it reminds me of I wrote about this was two years ago in two thousand sixteen when Lyle Collins or the Cowboys were moving on with at left guard as their starter in the season. He went down in week three coincidentally on Sunday night football against the Chicago Bears and Ronald Leary came in and Ron Larry came in the Cowboys offensive line was moving and grooving the rest of that season. When my Collins missed it and not to say this to -sarily, and I know a lot of people might say this. But that Ron Leary was a better player better left guard. Lyle Collins, but he was more experienced. It was veteran he'd been there done that he'd worked with that offensive line. I mean, there's a lot of reasons etc. Cons, we're still kind of new in the NFL still kind of growing in going through those rookie pains, although it wasn't a rookie at the time last night against the eagles Xavier swift excuse me, kind of had that sort of FEC to me like Connor Williams is just he might. And I don't mean this is a slight to him because he certainly got a lot of potential, but he's because he's so green right now as rookie. He just weighs down the overall collective because of his own mistakes and his own inefficiencies at this point in time. Well, I think over the course of the season, we seem Conaway overpowered. And when you're little unsure and trying to pick up blitzes and communicate municipal uncertainty and lack of confidence. I mean that has a tendency to collapse a pocket. Has a tendency to get penetration within the interior part of the line. So that creates a lot of problems, especially if you're trying to run in between the tackles. But you know, that wasn't the case last night. And again, I thought the play calling was Scotland a hand, I guess I mean you had to give him credit for being a little being created. But but look I mean, hey, that's gotta be every game. And I understand different different game plans personnel. But there's no reason why you can't continue that trend play calling because until they stop it. Just keep doing it. Keep doing it and doing it until they stop it. I mean, it's like eagles. Eagles didn't run the football because I got away from it. Because I thought the Cowboys continued to stop Minolta. You know, Zach ertz got going got their offense got going in the second half. But you know, what here's a thing about it. Because all the fans cry about the play Colin grow their offense coordinator there now and they want a new play collar. So while we want to sit here in Dallas and complain about the play call and everything I think everyone has it. And we're talking about the reigning Super Bowl champions. Yeah. Yeah. I mean, no patience whatsoever. I know Peter King wrote about this. And it was everywhere. How you goes fans were booing at halftime. No to love it. I love it. I as you man, Peter King, he called it. And I thought that was maybe a hair harsh. But overall that's a eagles fans baby. Yeah. I'm in that surly. You gotta remember you're talking about the Philadelphia Eagles here. And so I agree. I think it's important to sort of temporary expectations are temper overreacting to what we saw. Because again, there were still warts there were still bad moments. The Cowboys the one this game. And I do think they dominated to a degree. But part of why they dominated was because I don't think the eagles are very good football team eagle shot themselves many different times and the Cowboys as we mentioned they got a little lucky. I don't mean to say luck influence late in Vander perception or Zeke Elliott's hurdle. But things things like that Michael Gallup screen. Those don't happen on normal basis. Those are part locked those are part of just a perfect storm brewing. And so I think what we've seen before what we've seen in the past is the Cowboys coaching staff. Doug, get a win like this. And then they'll say, oh, man, we're we're bad ass. We're awesome. What we're doing works in the important thing is to look at it and say, yeah, dude, congrats got a big win. Here's your handshake. Is you cookie and your milkshake, by the way, I'm a strawberry. Milkshake kind of got. I know what you I would guess your chocolate milk shake chocolate. I like it all like Bonilla. I see this gross. Well, no I like meant chocolate biology. I'm cool pretty good. It's almost peppermint mocha season, by the way. So there's that is no it is a holiday. That's right. But so you know, we saw a diet today. No, we're talking about food already. I've already made it through the morning with moat mill. So I'm gonna try to sustain the the. The diet throughout the day without thinking about that. So you kinda got me off track on that. But anyways back to. Back to this. Good luck with the die. Let's talk about food. They'll do a whole podcast on food baby. We we should. But here's what I want to say RJ. And again, my go with my meant chocolate shake is that I don't think that we gotta get too excited about. I mean, it's great. I think as a player, it's great. It's a weak the weak league. We feel you feel good about yourself. You beat. Hey, you beat the reigning Super Bowl champion. You. Gotta get some satisfaction out of that. Hardly. Everyone was put in the grave, and you know, you came out and he performed so you feeling good about yourself your four and five here. But again, there are some things. The course the game. The eagles aren't as good as they were last year defensively the secondary's beat up and the Cowboys second bandage of that eagles. Couldn't do what they you know, they usually do. But you know, the happens the NFL so it's a week by week lease totally and you know, the eagles on their own. On their by their own admission wasn't as affected as been offense. Because some of the things are going on. We forget that Jay Ajayi is out this year with an injury. But I don't want to. I don't want to downplay, and I don't wanna take any discredit what the Cowboys did. For me. I need to see more needs to be. A body of work and not just okay, we play good one week. And then we'll see what happens next week because we've we've seen this all year long. It's I mean, I think that the initial reaction everything that's kind of happened in the fall out of this victories. We do celebrate victory. Polo Monday has been that general thought that general consensus. I think you know, there was murmurs of Jerry Jones wanting to extend Jason Garrett the week after they beat the Jacksonville Jaguars and everybody then was like, dude, what are you doing? It's just one game. And so I do think there is this this sense of a hey, you pulled something impressive off. But it's just one game. You're still four and five. There's still a long road ahead. I mean for all, you know, it's worth the Cowboys could win, you know, they could pull end up winning ten games win the division. And that's still not enough to prove that Jason Garrett or Scotland a hint should return. But so I do think that people are at that place where they're saying, you know, what man I'm kind of checked out at this point. You know, we're here finish the season whatever, but we need to have a serious talk. It's kinda like it's kinda like when you get that that caller that tax or whatever from whoever and says, you know, we need to talk when you get home. It's like, well, you're not home yet being the end of the season. And so I think that's where the Cowboys are what sort of the environment and the temperatures around in their team before we move completely off of the game itself. I do want to point out. There was a point in the game. Where Chris Collins who you mentioned earlier, it was just falling over himself at how Carson Wentz pulled off a throw despite his wrist spin getting snagged, which was impressive. I thought that was kinda cool that said a lot about Carson's aren't talent. But Chris Collins with completely ignored the Damon. Wilson was getting close lined on that play in the Philadelphia Eagles. That was definitely a holding. Call right there. This call the eagles were not penalized at all in this game. And this is crazy. This story line has started to emerge. And I I am never somebody. You can never talk me into you know, rafts or whoever having it in for any team. I don't buy into that. But I do think a tweet from Rick Gosselin, the great goose Goslin, certainly is very interesting. He tweeted after the game the eagles played a penalty free game against the Cowboys. Only the second team all season to play a penalty free game the patriots or the other against Kansas City that game coincidentally also on Sunday night football. There have been thirty penalty free games since two thousand and a league high five of them have come what the Cowboys as the opponent. That's. Think of some irony there with the with the Cowboys of the plane of Cowboys at they're not gonna be any calls made against him. I don't I don't I'll never buy that. You can use theory their conspiracy. What I would never buy that. Personally. I just buy that as a coincidence. Honestly. But I do find it absurd that I mean is it is it possible? Technically, does it exist in the world of possibilities that team could play a penalty free game shirt. That's technically. But it's very very very unlikely. I find it very especially in today's NFL penalties your happening left. And right. I just find it. Very honestly amazing that the eagles play the penalty free game against the Cowboys. I was surprised too. Because I didn't even think about it until this morning when I actually read something on on on social media about that. I'm like, wow. And usually your chances of winning a game. I don't even know what the percentage is our. But what play a perfect game while perfect game would be no penalties. And. Although you had no penalties. You didn't weren't able to pull off the win. And you know, the the Cowboys I know some there were some issues with the Benneton the clock. They got a couple of penalties. A holding penalties. But yeah, I saw that in also they they missed that call whenever they were talking. Like, I said, you know, when you're he was salivate over. Yeah. And it was Carson Wentz. A great, what's? Yeah. I think it was de LA who had Damian Wilson we'll say at home. It has wristband. I saw that. And I'm thanking we'll help you should point out. The fact that they just got away with a holding actually that was a chokehold. Yeah. Damian wilson. But I mean that was a great play by Damien keep trying to keep the play extended. But yeah, I mean, you is if you're if you're in a category, not making committee penalties, and you don't get called. You would think percentage of winning the football game pretty good. But you still have to execute and take advantage of the situations when you're able to other team gets penalized holiday, and for what it's worth I do think that Chris Collins worth after the Damon Wilson play this is maybe a conspiracy theory. I do think he was made aware of the fact that he was talking about the respond while that that was happening. I I'm going to guess maybe somebody you know in the booth. Let him know. Hey, dude, you know, Twitter's on fire with this right now because it was very shortly. After that that Chris Collins wore the win after eagle center Jason. Kelsey who called out Cowboys fans last week, by the way has to eat a whole big help and humble pie. But it was right after that he went after Jason Kelsey for being too far downfield. It was saying I dunno. I think that's a penalty. It was almost it's another one they missed to. It was almost as if Chris was saying L cavalry fan. That's my bad my bad. That's me. That's me. Let me let me show you some love that's a conspiracy theory that I buy more than, you know, referees having in for the countless that's to me. Well, look like he was like five yards downfield. And and that was clearly illegal man downfield, and they missed that call. But the bottom line is the Cowboys the way they play the way they took advantage of their opportunity. The big plays Zeke usually at the play the defense which gives an opportunity to win a football game. You had all those things up and it's to win on the road again and be able to still have that heartbeat going. You gotta give them a lot of credit. And we don't know what it's going to happen this week against the falcons because Alcan's this lost the Cleveland. So we know they're gonna have a red ask the Cowboys going into Atlanta. And we saw what happened last you Lantis so still the jury is still out absolutely in before we kind of just teased this game because we'll talk later this week about the upcoming Valentine's game and kinda preview that match before we fully get there. The last thing I want to say about this eagles game. Was you mentioned you said man, you know, I don't know what what the odds of winning are. But I have to magin they grow. If you don't get called for a single penalty. I want you to think specifically, but I want you to think about all the inherent advantages. The eagles had in this game. They were at home. That's you know, from Vegas standpoint, at least at three point advantage. They were coming off their by the Cowboys were not only not coming off their bye. They were coming off of a short week because they played on Monday night football the eagles. You know, are the reigning Super Bowl champions, the reigning conference in division. Champions. They are by all measures the favorites. In fact, as you mentioned, they were eight and a half point favorites. When the game kicked off on top of that the eagles did not get called for a single penalty in the game. So if you had to design if I told you Tony the Cowboys are gonna play whoever, and I gave you all of those things as built in advantage is you would say we'll do they should win that game because they have everything going their way from a non field perspective. And I think that that adds to how impressive this one was for the opposite. They took all of that all of those things that they were up against conceivably. Obviously, they didn't know about the penalties before the game started. But the fact that they defeated all of those odds is really impressive especially on a night in a game. Where Jason Garrett in Scotland a hands asses on the line. Yeah, you're right. And it shows to me these two teams got one thing in common. They both can't play after by week. Because look what happened the Cowboys. This got destroyed by the titans in in. In the eagles at sitting there at Ford four and just played over in London and beat Jacksonville they had time off and they look sluggish. So while it may be great to be able to get the hill up a little bit the momentum. It seems to me that the some teams lose momentum. They can either compartmentalize it or create energy, and and really really use that advantage. But you saw the eagles. They look sluggish their offense. They didn't have anything going and he'll credit the defense for the Cowboys. I played well, but not till the third quarter the second half when eagles woke up in. We're able to get Sacher involved and get some things going because we news Acker was going to be a player nessa these tremendous tied in he's got over seventy receptions. What do you have thirteen receptions last night or some stupid? He had a career high. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Fourteen. Minus wandered it. But at at one, but yeah, that's just shows me that the by week is right now issue. Thank you use that in your vantage because just re energized. But. You know, doesn't really apply to these teams. Both of them really didn't play very good coming off the bye week. It's it's good wins. Tasty win. It's it's a great win. Because you and I as record this for both wearing jackets it's really cold outside. This is just it's it's perfect. It really is. It's perfect. Just kinda it's called and everything socks and weather, blah, blah. But the Cowboys one gives you that warm fuzzy feeling inside it's like that first coffee in the morning. But just all day long. And now into the Cowboys win the eagles lost. That's an amazing better. So, you know, an and again, we'll all sort of really dig in on this matchup later in the week and on Instagram throughout the week. But the Cowboys today as we record this Tony not only we bundled up. But it is November twelfth which serves as the one year anniversary of when the Cowboys went to Atlanta last year and Chaz green made Dak Prescott. Dial run run my Monday and. A lot of people still have nightmares about that day. Sure. And they'll be there this weekend. My dad, and I are going to be there with traveling for this game. So if you're listening going to be there hit me up on Twitter. But this this is the next biggest image season for the Cowboys. And I don't know. Maybe there is something to feeling like you're the underdog because I think that was the mantra for the Cowboys maybe heading into Philly. And so now, if if I'm Jason, Gary, if I'm Chris Rashard China craft, you know, whatever. Psychological advantages. I can I'm saying guys the last time you went there. You got punched in the mouth, this is let's performing an extra season this week. It get the holy water. Get the candles. You know, get everything you need. We are performing an extra schism in the AT L, which just so having to be the home of the Super Bowl this year. And I think it certainly bodes well that the falcons lost as you mentioned the Browns of all teams on Sunday, it might wake them up. And but I should say that they are different team at home. They have scored over thirty points in four of their five home games. And they're going to be in that stadium that they love so much this Sunday. Yeah. And I think the Cowboys will be reminded of well, what happened a year goes, you just mentioned. And look I mean you look at the second half of the season. You look with the Cowboys gotta do to seems like every what they do eight year. Average out with the under Jason GARRETT'S leadership. And again that was a huge win for them on the road. So we'll see how how they processes how this will catapulted him how respond, and you know, again this part of the season. You got a it's an it's it's an echo in you try to look at the numbers. You look at the last four games this season. How many you can win arguably this is going to be nothing bolts are their season. We thought that you know, they wouldn't they lay against eagles. They got to win. Now when you look at what happened in 'lanta versus the Browns. The, you know, the in just said, they're really good at home. So, you know, these a winnable games the only one to look at the maybe really really difficult for the win against an Orleans. But if you win back to back games, you get on a little roll, which they haven't done this year. Then there's a little bit more confidence. And now they start believing. You get him a home stranger things. Happen. So the Washington Redskins are six and three Dallas Cowboys and eagles for what it's worth, by the way. Tony the eagles lost on Sunday to the Cowboys there. They really did. Say that again both eagles and the Cowboys are two games back in the NFC five. So when did this a few weeks ago Redskins are six and three? Let's look at this. So the Redskins this week this Sunday. The same window that the Cowboys play the falcons the Redskins host the Houston. Texans who are coming off of there by the Redskins, excuse me. The Texans are winners of six in a row. I think that's kind of a coin toss. I could see the Texans beating the Redskins. I think that that's you know, you could call that a loss potentially. And we're going to need some help, certainly. So you look at that that could be a loss after that next Thursday Thanksgiving Day, the Washington Redskins will be in Dallas for you know. Man. I don't know if it gets better than Cowboys and Redskins on thanksgiving. That's going to be a lot of fun next week. So obviously the Cowboys can control that game. After that the Redskins get a little bit of a mini by because they go from thanks giving all the way to Monday night football when they'll travel to take on these eagles. Maybe we'll need to eat us to win that game. Who knows? That's that's still aways down the road out to that. They get the giants that games puppy us. Then they get the Jaguars which probably maybe maybe puppy bacon little bit tougher. And then after that they get the titans who are kind of surprise steam as you mentioned they beat the New England Patriots on Sunday. And then they finish up with the eagle. So I certainly I know a few weeks ago that that did not look as intimidating as it does now, but I concern with c- the Redskins losing three or four those games. Yeah. I mean, a lot of things can happen. Again. You look at the Redskins. I don't know offense. They haven't been getting done defenses played. Well, they you know, they've been able to win games. And you know, this is going to be a big test for them this week. I mean, it's every I think Houston Houston's playing well. So I think that's a winnable game. And I I'm not really I think Alex Smith is a quarterback. That's he's he's got paid big money. But he's not these guy that scares you. So, you know, you look at the NFC again, it's just one of these baby steps that you take. And I'm not gonna say the Cowboys are going to be, you know, nine and seven eight I don't even know if they're gonna be eight. But I think is now it gets more. Attainable and more reasonable that. They can if they continue to win. Now every week is going to be something they have to prove themselves and every week. It's all about it's a it's a one game season and wherever they want to get an again as you washing the Redskins. Well, the Redskins do the only thing you can hope is that the Redskins because I think you look at the Cowboys scheduled. They argue they got one of the toughest I would say, November, December schedules. Think fifteen toughest schedule in the National Football League of sees. So I mean, you really can't worry about what other people are gonna do right now because you have to win you have to get the eight Nate and to get eight you there's not much margin of air. So of the Cowboys remaining games. I think we both agree that the toughest one at least as of today. Today's November twelfth if somebody wants to go back and listen to this in the middle of December things will change. But as of today the toughest game. I think we both agree. Is the New Orleans Saints. That's not question. The hardest one even though there will be no Dez Bryant that's still going to be very very difficult. Where does the falcons game rank for you? Because the Cowboys have the saints left. They still have the home game against the eagles. They'll travel to play the giants. I don't think that one's tough they'll travel to play the colts. I don't think balance tough. They get the buccaneers at home. I don't think that one's tough. They do get the Redskins as mentioned on thanksgiving. I think you can make an argument that because this game is inet Lanta that this Sunday might be the second toughest game remaining for the Cowboys. And so if if you know, and we'll get into later, the if you can get through this if you can head into thanksgiving at five and five and game against the current division leaders on the menu. That's the blood in the water the Cavs could smell, and they could go it's possible. I think I think anything's possible. I think that you have to you have to realize you know, what you've done during the season. And I think if you're you're. Yes. And you're trying to predict what the Cowboys do then good luck as we've seen this. We've seen this year. The teams that they were supposed to supposed to win. Excuse me supposed to be and ended up not playing well and not performing. And you know, the the Cowboys to be able to run a row, that's huge. So we look back in time, and they used to be really good winning on the road. So they put together back back win. I think it just gives them closer to what they need to do. So I guess let's close with this one to ten how confident in you are the Cowboys after this win in Philly. But before that how confident were you before the game? And how confident are you? Now. That's that's gimme ground. Graham, honest with you I had about three going into the Phillies game. I picked the Cowboys to lose a lot of a lot of other people did and now. I'll give them a six, and you know, based on what I saw against the eagles. Hey, they're playing a lot better. But again, I need to see more. I think everyone needs to see that they can continue this that this is consistency. That this is desperation. Maybe desperation brings up I think this brings out the worst or the best in people last night. It certainly brought a lot of great things out of the Cowboys. I am I don't mean to completely copy. But I I'm gonna completely copy. I was at three I might have been at a two. And now, I might say six I might be at a five in that range. I think the Cowboys showed that they have at the very least the potential to make some noise or at least make things interesting down the stretch. You know, I think a lot of people felt this way if they lose every single game from here on out, you one the most important one you went out like a man, you know, you went out swinging you want in Philly, you know, they've never wanna game there against the. Cowboys with Super Bowl banner-hanging. I mean, you know, and that will be true at least for year. So I think that that's a really important thing. We were getting blown up on Twitter. Tony people telling us how we need to eat some humble pie because we pick the Cowboys to lose whatever. Hey, I'm fine. Let's let's sit down all all the humble pile on just like everyone else did because I don't know how many people thought when it went after watching what the Cowboys are done pick the Cowboys to win on the road against eagles. Now, it's just a huge fan that you know, you haven't you know, you it doesn't matter what they've done you probably there's not too many people have said that the Cowboys weren't gonna lose. Exactly. So his what I'm proposing. I've got the pies in oven. So they're gonna come out right now, we're gonna need to wait about twenty minutes of them to cool. So you get a semitic. Maybe wait, I told you early on. When we start the show, I'm on a diet humble pie. Go get the milk, and maybe get like a gallon of ice cream because I like little ice cream on the side of my and we'll sit down, and we'll eat this, and it'll taste good. I think this this humble pie will taste good. You're testing my willpower. But I'm always up for eating humble pie. I mean, that's what we do. That's right. So you and I will do to them live throughout the week. And then we'll be back to preview this Cowboys falcons game. It's a fun game. I imagined for you. Specifically what the Cowboys in playing against one. Another certainly I imagine brings up some some fun memories. Well, I remember the first time when I got traded the Dallas and we played Atlanta. And I was just so amped up to build a play my former team and play some of my former teammate. But yeah, I, you know, it's land is always a great city to go to. And I know you're you're you're father going you'll have a tremendous Stein. I haven't been to the new stadium which I hear is remarkable. But yeah, I mean, it's. Always good to the former the two teams clash in especially the two teams of you're part of. And it's someone brought something up talking to actually I did a show on Sirius satellite, and Jamie dukes, a former teammate of mine brought up fact that I had one hundred fifty two tackles in nineteen eighty eight. And I think this day stills record for defensive lineman. So there you go. Hey, I'll look. The statue. We'll look real hard, brother. It'll be fun. This is going to be a great week things might be called it might be rainy and in whatever and ugly outside. But the sun is always brighter after the Cowboys win. So Tony absolutely enjoy fans. Enjoy this victory polo Monday and enjoy the rest of the week. We'll be back soon. All right, brother. This was everybody the seven five, oh, thanks for listening. And we'll see you later on this. Hello. I'm Spencer hall from SP nation, and I wanna tell you about my new show. It seemed smart smart as a show about people doing things that for some reason or another seem smart at the time. Those things might include doing a little cocaine and driving a bike up a mountain or I don't know maybe racing one hundred miles per hour across the country in the middle of the night with no one's permission or even stealing a bat from an empire is room in a major league baseball park, check it out. And if you like it Tele friend, I'm Spencer hall, don't do anything smart.

One hundred programming.

That's been a ton of fun. I mean there's been. NFL One hundred programming everywhere and with all due respect respect the centerpiece of that programming is tonight. It starts tonight six weeks long every Friday Eddie night eight eastern time slowly but surely the reveal of the NFL one hundred all time team one hundred spaces players players including special teams and coaches will be named over a six week reveal and I'm Honored to have hosted it was shot at NFL films on in May may sixth seventh and Chris Collins Worth is one of the analysts sts helping reveal and talking about what certain players did back in the day or are still doing there are current players on the NFL. One hundred team. I'm not a lot but there are and bill belichick. I won't forget it was last January anywhere coming off the set after one of the many shows that we did. You know we do every year previewing NFL game morning rod up to kick off of a divisional playoff series and stuff like that. At any rate we've had many moments the NFL network our own. Forget I come off the set. Mike Muriano are major dome at the NFL network. been there since day one he comes up to me and he says hey the NFL one hundred season's since coming up and we're thinking of doing a really special show that's the centerpiece of everything for the NFL. One hundred all time team and we'd love for you to host. It would require you to get out of the chair. You know your show. Meaning this one for a couple of days and I don't know when we're GONNA. I'm Mike one where we shoot. I don't know it depends on the schedule of one of the analysts that were hoping to get. I literally thought to myself in the back of my head on Mike. Come on we're all busy in the NFL world. I mean on. Somebody's needs to can't talent January that if you got some time in May or June and we honestly did think to myself the Magna who is this person so I I said who who is this. We're talking about and he said the words Bill Belichick and I've thought to my I literally stopped in. My tracks stopped walking. What did you see how he's he's? He's apparently really interested in doing it. He's on the Selection Committee for the team and would would really because you know he respects. NFL films. And I did get the Bella checkmark like he would be willing to do a show like who would we be hosting it. They mentioned me got got the check. Mark which was nice and He said he's really considered doing it. And we did it and he did it in Collins worth it and it was unbelievable and when you see bill Bella check tonight you will see Andy few sieve knowledgeable historian and absolute head over heels lover of football. And it is contagious. You will love it and and you will not be able to get enough of it now. I'm sure you've heard and other places including this one all. Yeah Okay Belt. Check is not like He. He used to be or like. He's not the guy that I see on the podium. I get it how okay you will see over. One of the next two episodes collins worth asks Bella check you know. Where does his knowledge of all these older players? I come from because he is so prepared and so knowledgeable. The older players the thirties and there are players from the thirties and forties. That are on this team and the way we handle it on the show as we just handed it off to Bella. Check to do a film session with what's called the Bella Straighter Patriots. Fans know what this is he gets on the coaches clicker with Zolak on our local. Show that he does every week right in the New England area and you see. He's amazing when he's on the coaches click or sometimes those videos go viral a little bit so we put him on the clicker and he goes and runs the film of these older players that the NFL films folks dive into their vast archive. And pull out all the grainy film. And he's like yeah. This person was a two way player. This person was this person was that and we're like okay. We trust you got it. But then when it comes to the fifties and sixties when he started falling in love with football just like everybody else. A kid might not have been wanting to ask his dad. Can I go see frozen too but a kid so collins worth asks asks Bella check. Where does your knowledge of all these players in the fifties and sixties come from and his response stopped us in our tracks? And I'll take. Lt here football cards collecting football cards while and like reading the stats and the Info on the cards all cards Goodness so my follow up question was a simple one d still still have him exactly he says yes. My mother hasn't thrown them out. My mother wouldn't throw them out and Mike. So so Bella. Checks football cards or a boxer and his response. I don't want to give up the answer to that. You'll have to tune in but that's again you don't hear that ever but he breeds and lives in and loves it and got exposed to it in a way we all did football cards or NFL films or just a love of watching the game and all of that is on display. He didn't go when I asked a follow up question like would you still have them eating like we're you know we're moving onto johnny notice. You Know Yeah Yeah. Are you an worried or hopeful that this is going to make people see bill and a different light and maybe become fans end of him. It's not look I'm just saying like did you. Do you get the impression that people are GonNa come away from this and think. Oh I kind of like that guy now I I think you have no choice but to feel that way. How about that and I know that that is telling people what they should think Whatever you think a him or the team or the conduct of the team throughout the years is that they have now strong together? Nineteen straight winning seasons. Whatever you think? This guy is a fan tastic. Conveyor of the greatness of the sport and the history of the sport and the passion of the sport the only time I saw the move onto Cincinnati bell check. And I'm not telling in any tales out of school about who's made it who's not like last night's reveal with Jim Brown. Okay obviously coaches are on the list. Can you name to write off the top of your head. This name to disgust one of them. I we're talking about right bill and probably Vince Lombardi correct. So when it came time for bills name to be announced it was an interesting conversation but he did allow for Human side in a way that you wouldn't think that if you ask him about himself but when it came for Lombardi and I asked him. Hey you must hear that you're furred to is the modern day Lombardi. What do you think of when you hear that it was as as if we were moving on to Cincinnati on the spot and we even had a little bit of fun? I don't know if it makes the final cut about now. There's the bill that we know and we felt comfortable to be able to say that to kind of joke. Ask On yes I mean. Everyone says that bill has a great analogy sense of humor. Are you just. Don't ever get to see it and there's one thing for sure and another one that I am just going to dare to assume as to the reason why he participated in this one he realizes that this. This is an important moment in time. The one hundredth season of football the NFL and films was doing it and he was a selector and with an opportunity to be on the distributor distributing and of the result salt and be part of something that was considered or would be considered an important program in the NFL. One hundred campaign he he was into that and the other one. I'm assuming is that. There are people in his orbit. That are like okay. You got the Lombardi's in the case where we are repainting the back of your boat every year to rename it. How many rings you have? It's eight right okay. We're we're we're renaming your boat every or rechristening your boat. It is easy to grin when your ship comes in and you've got the NFL beat Ah Okay but we should start thinking about showing a little bit of who you are and this is a good opportunity for you to do that. And I'm assuming based on the people in his orbit that he was listening in that affront and it's all all were all benefiting I mean how many hours since you I it's on six months once again just the NFL presentation production and Collins worth by the. I don't WanNa get lost in this collingsworth. is so good because not only is he. We just a Rolls Royce storyteller broadcaster and knows all the contemporary players but he can also tell stories about. Oh Yeah when Paul Brown came in to see amy and the locker room.

Good night you've been in that cursing not sure legally can do it So I think a blessing in disguise. I will let me what it describes apps what this was a French show describes it. You know it was because we put us from La Light. That's not Christian Dorsey like I'm saying where I was it right the community that was there. It's just it was crenshaw and were Chris.

We re they really was playing right. Lisa get hot. It was it was. It felt like the rucker. The extras was going. She got hot through actions now they was all like we in plaguing us which I don't believe none of them playing alone on the court and it was just like a switch went off. And you like you. I can't believe I'm doing his movie with these Leonard is that you'll she caught fire. Is it true. Six threes in a row fixed in a row. She caught fire. It was crazy to watch it. That's why we know I mean the movies out now but like when I hit the game winning shot what you know. That was the first take at two for sixteen John. starks I take. That was the real celebration. That was a thatch again and I kept missing so this was extra starting irritated. 'cause I I wouldn't hit another shot the extras I. I started getting heckled by the actually. Come on man.

Did you think get out was is going to be what was handed to you. When you're just a just a top line message you're going to be in a Jordan peele movie even more than when Jordan Jordan told told me about it at a party man I wrote a horror film? I Good Luck with that Ville horror but in the more he kept describing my brain. You really this is your thing and I don't think none of us thought it was going to do what he did. I I thought it was too. They either people are going to either embrace it over.

These are about Ma- every one of the facts that's on here is like a special statistic. That's why they're highlighted in yellow. There's about about twelve of them on here.

Tom Brokaw's Here's Chris Brockman with sneaky good games contests likely to surprise you or they're here to for undisclosed competitive competitive broker. I were hot four one one the last two weeks. Let's keep it going the game tomorrow. Penn State Ohio State. I'm going to take the Buckeyes at home. The way the eighteen and a half at the big number but don't Care Penn state is going to be without their starting center. Michael men and has their best lineman chase as young as back for the Buckeyes. I'm sure he's GONNA WANNA make a statement Penn state not good against the number in the last six weeks only two and four. Meanwhile how the states. There's been a juggernaut all year. Eight eight and one against the number of this year eight and one and the last night against Penn state specifically. I don't see any way that Penn state can stop Ohio State. Big Time for the Buckeyes. Okay what else sir. Let's go to Sunday rich lions and Redskins. 'cause you gotta throughout the records when it's driscoll the Haskins I'm GonNa go under forty one here in landover Maryland. The trends for these teams are not good. Detroit lost six of seven. Oh and fight against the spread the last five Washington just to in seven and their last night against the number. I'm guessing it's going to be a heavy run game. There's rain in the forecast We saw neither of these teams can really do much with the backup. quarterbacks under forty one is the point he owned that you're only dangerous. Dairy guys suddenly puts it all then. He's like unstoppable and and then Driscoll's leading a comeback then with this lines defense is risky play. But then you've seen gene seem with. They really can't do anything so I'M GONNA go under forty one. Okay let's go to the big afternoon game cowboys Patriots. None of the trends point to this pick. But I'm doing it anyway anyway. I'm going to take cowboys plus six and a half. I'm doing this because I've watched the Patriots play every game this year. There's something wrong with the offense. It's not clicking like like we're used to seeing in recent years. Mohamed Sanu is going to be out. Philip door set is still in concussion protocol. There's the the wind play is I went back and I totally get that. But there's just something off about this team Patriots might win the game anyway but it's going to be a tight contest. I just liked the Way Dallas awesome playing Dak Prescott the top five quarterback and I think it's going to be a heavy Zeke game because teams can run on the Patriots. So I'm giving the cowboys plus six and a half. Okay okay now you go. Let's you're sneaky. Good Games for week. Twelve man week dozen. Let's go to Newton in Virginia Newton in Virginia. Back here on the show. How you doing Newton go rich? Thanks for having me real quick. I wanted to say to the Lucky gentlemen WHO's about to have a child don't go go with juniors and so forth and so on. Have you used other family names. But they give the child and individual name 'cause they will be an individual of their own. Go thank you and and I don't know if you call it already of rich but Dallas is my Most unluckiest blocks and yesterday you guys should have your rudy in favor of invincible. After I found out that rudy was not as historically accurate as they wanted you to believe I felt like I got ripped off. I watched it. I loved it and then all of a sudden my bubble got I um Newton. You don't want your bubble burst either to an entertainment value stolen from me rich taken taken in. Its by the way a great movies. Well thank you for the call Newton. That's fun callback. What should I be more proud of Chris having hosted this show now for five? Plus you in news isn't six inner seasons. Congratulations on assume you buddy What should I be more proud of that? Somebody based based on what I say into this year microphone which I just moved around for effect. How does that sound good? Good put that in your memoir now. That won't okay That what I say. This microphone that somebody from Virginia Richmond Virginia far from Los Angeles. Twenty seven th would take in the concept of unlock lock of the week and repeated back. Okay like maybe maybe he's one of my clones calling up and repeating back what I say to the microphone and it is intoxicating. I must say that it is an intoxicating field so it is epic. It is epic perfect. So I kinda understand is phenomenal phenomenal it is it feels good. Let's just call in and start repeating what I say rich. Thanks for the vied. It is very very intoxicating or that. Somebody based on what I say looked up the facts about rudy and now thinks less of the film. What should I be a proud of? What should I be just sitting up tall and my chair air saying yes? Yes I do the rich Eisen show and make people's lives better. Yes it's Rudy. They haven't yet mark Cuban our Monday. Night is podcast night. The Los Angeles Lakers. What's happening? Everybody this is the Lakers podcast. I'm your host Mike Trudell super pumped to be your flanked by earn Lars tool. You ready to the Lakers will be top ten defense. Take a team. That has two stars or supervisor with Lebron. Ad Can sometimes cancers other out. But I think they're both good candidates for MVP. I really like the way that this team just feels to be around the IT'S A. It's a very clear message to stars broaden ad and it's everybody else on board the relationship nations that is developing between those two off the court and the court their cohesiveness on the court. I think in this case is a special case that the two of them will enhance each other as opposed to taking taking away from each other shirt rates.

The IHEARTRADIO APP or wherever you get your podcast. You are listening to the Dan Patrick. Show on Fox sports radio. Welcome to the program. It's hour one and it's Thursday in the Dan. Patrick show got some good news yesterday for people hoping the NBA will be back this season. We'll talk about that coming up. Chris Collins worth the great analyst for football night in America Sunday night. Football will join US coming up a little bit Denny Hamlin. Who had a win last night? Nascar night racing at Darlington Denny got the chequered flag. He'll join us a little bit later on as well we'll talk about Dak Prescott and the reported five year. One hundred seventy five million dollar deal that is on the table and what my thoughts would be for both deck and the cowboys that's coming up the NBA is expected to announce a plan. Soon that the sport could be back sometime in July. Maybe they're going to play out the rest of the season at a single location like Orlando. I'm GONNA take you back a couple of days ago. We had Adrian Wootton Arou- ski on and I asked him about that possibility and this is what he had to say. Now when you're talking about site or sites are we talking about Vegas? Orlando those the two that are in conversations. That's right. Dan in Orlando has had a lot of traction. And I think the question is going to be a are they gonNA put all the teams in one place. Are they going to perhaps have teams moving Among two sites based on an eastern Western conference scenario but The one thing Adam silver has told the players until the owners what he doesn't want her teams flying around. You're not GonNa see what baseball's proposing which is teams moving around playing in home stadiums the NBA focused on one site. Note fans And then they're going to deal with trying to get back into arenas again buildings again for the start of next season okay. So THAT'S WHOA. Jr TALKING ABOUT ORLANDO. There's also the chance that Vegas would be for the Western Conference Playoff Games and Orlando would be the eastern conference. Nothing's official but that's on the table the NBA NHL face a different set of issues than Major League baseball or the NFL because basketball and hockey the twenty twenty season has o'clock on it. And it's ticking fast. How do you finish the season that was put on hold over two months ago and the first keys keeping everyone safe and once they figure that out? How do the players get in shape? How many games to get ready? And then what do you do about the remainder of the regular season? You can complain about the details if you want but right now everything has to be measured against the alternative which is no basketball or no hockey. And we're still waiting to find out what college football is going to do the. Nfl has some time here. Major League Baseball. We've certainly had some discrepancies. In the reports. There are some animosity going on between the owners and the players you got college football and one of the more powerful Athletic Directors Ohio stage. Gene Smith said that college football is working on a plan and this is to fill one. Fifth of the stadium was social distancing. So Ohio state the Horseshoe has about one hundred and two thousand fans. I think it's the third largest stadium in college football. You're going to have about twenty to twenty two thousand fans and you're gonNA have social distancing there how do you come up with the twenty twenty two thousand and do students get to go to games? Is this season ticket holders. Do you have a lottery for this? Is their seniority with this. These are just some of the questions that college football is facing right now. The big twelve commissioner came out and said football players may have to be tested every two to three days. But what about the non student athlete? How often is he or she tested frequently. So Bob Bulls be is the big twelve commissioner and he said that if these football players they're going to be needed needing to be tested for the covid nineteen probably every two or three days to bring the sport back safely. I don't know if we're GONNA get to the point. Where can we have students? And is that window of opportunity for the fall semester. Going to go up to Thanksgiving and then that's it. The students will go home for the winter break. Christmas break winter break and they won't come back until after January. Then you could. Maybe put the football season in Thanksgiving till the end of the year. These are just things that are being proposed right now but there is progress the one thing though that should be pointed out we're not sure about NBA or Major League Baseball and the NHL. You know with college football those athletes song. Abbas say they don't have a union there's no players union and that's why when. Chip Kelly was on yesterday. And I encourage you if you didn't hear the interview. I thought he was really really good. You know you can go to Dan. Patrick com you can hear all of our interviews here in the Mercedes. Aim Man Cave. But you know he's talking about yes my. I said you know. What kind of voice do the players have? And he said yes. We're going to talk to them. We have been talking to them on a regular basis here because it feels like they don't have a say and they don't have somebody who is speaking for them and I don't know if that's going to create any friction in the next couple of weeks maybe next couple of months depending on where we go where we go with this virus but these are just some of the things that are on the table right now. It feels like there's more progress here. We're looking at starting dates of maybe June first for college football the NFL slowly bringing people back baseball. Still trying to get out of its way here. It would help if people in Major League Baseball Home Office. Stop leaking all of this information here. It's not helping. It's hurting and if somebody wants to come out and say hey here's a document here's an email that says the players association knew exactly what we were going to do with the money payments here what we had to do because we were not having fans in the stands all of this. Major League. Baseball has a real problem because somebody's leaking all of that information look at the NBA. They're not leaking. Anything haven't heard anything because they're players association and their commissioner and their owners are in unison here. And that's what it's going to take football. Feels like there is unison. Their Major League baseball that is fragmented and that can lead to disaster here and not that baseball is an tenuous situation. But you know. Baseball is not what it once was. The importance is not there. What used to be. And it's still obviously a huge revenue producing sport. Popular Sport. It's not America's pastime anymore and. I think that they have to understand. Let's keep everything in house so we're GonNa have loose lips where people are going. I'm well look at these spoiled players you want to have public sentiment and the players don't have public sentiment and that doesn't mean that they're wrong they don't have public sentiment here the NBA has been quiet. That's what you need quiet behind closed doors. It's been three weeks since we really heard anything. And WHOA JR is the one who brought this up about them. Playing in Orlando. We'd heard it before. And what doesn't speculate he may say. I'm hearing or this could happen. Whoa jazz information. And that's why when he said it believed it right away. Orlando makes a lot of sense if they can do this. And if YOU HAVE VEGAS INVOLVED THAT WAY. I cut down on the travel with the Western Conference teams. And that's what you WANNA do. It makes sense to have Vegas in Orlando if you can do a one stop shop. I think that's the key this program brought to you by legalzoom. They made it easy to set up the right estate plan without leaving your home. Take care of your family today. The Right Estate Plan at legalzoom dot com play the day stat of the day. Poll question make love. What do you have for me? Okay do you care if the NBA Cutoff off? Regular Season Games as a fan. Yes Sir oh I don't at this stage. No now if they want to eventually look at how long the season is next year do they. Do they reduce the Games next year because the NBA season next year is not going to start on time? You might have it reduced to seventy games. But if I'm an owner. Hey I got to recoup my money here and I was looking at the numbers of the Golden State Warriors. You know making how many million dollars every home game and this is a team. That won't be in the playoffs this year. So you lose out on that revenue this abbreviated season and then next. Season's going to be abbreviate. These are all things that are going to be factored in to this. But if you want to lop off you want to let them play five regular season games to get ready for the postseason. That's more than enough for me. The mclovin some people are saying though that cuts out legitimacy of the season and the playoffs even though other sports have shortened their season like the NFL and MLB shortened seasons at no one cared. But but I just WANNA make sure they're ready for the postseason ansel if you're ready for the postseason and it takes five games then great young once again we go back nobody ever ever mentions you know the spurs one Title IN THE STRIKE SHORTENED SEASON. That no one has ever brought up an asterisk. The only reason why they're bringing up an asterisk this year is if Lebron James wins the title. Let's it if Kawhi wins. Nobody saying asterisk. It's Lebron James. That is it. What else do you have mclovin? Okay if you're an NBA player and you weren't in playoff contention would you WANNA GO TO ORLANDO? Because a lot of people are saying that's restrictive to key players in one city for this long period of time. I just need to know I need to have more information there. These guys have already gotten paid. I believe I believe they're getting paid through may fifteenth. But if it means I'm I need to go to get paid. Then I go. I am actually worried about guy who are on like bottom dwelling teams are they gonna. WanNa sit in Orlando for a matter of weeks. They might after being quarantined. They might be like. Hey It'd be great to go out and play some basketball. And how long are you going to be there? If you're playing five games. Are we talking? You Know Fifteen fifteen days that you're going to be there a little bit longer. I think I think that's survivable the word. What else do you have in club? Okay I got to college football question if you an Ohio state fan would you rather watch the game in the parking lot of the shoe on TV or would you rather watch in the comfort of your own home in the fall show? Many fans might be locked out if they have. Twenty thousand has eighty thousand. Who Normally would go in the stadium? What's the ideal situation? Well I don't know if they're going to allow tailgating because I don't I know how Governor Weiner's GonNa go. Hey social distancing in the parking lot and can you have that for tailgate? There's so many questions we have and I know I'm always Danny Downer here. All I'm doing is asking questions that feel like they need to be answered at some point. And you're going to have football fans going to tailgate and can you keep them out of the parking lot there when they go to tailgate. And if you're going to go into the game who didn't who gets to go in students aren't going to get to go in Yemen Club in normal times. How do you answer that question? Have you ever been a guy who stays out at the tailgate? No no I I stay out there for a little longer. Sometimes when I went to Ohio State Michigan a couple of years ago we had a great setup and it was tough to leave that setup because you had everything their food. We had beer. You had a big screen and there were quite a few people out there but when you start to hear the ambiance inside that's really what you're there for and then we went inside and then once it started to be a blow out in the game we went back out to the tailgate and then stayed there until they closed up shop. What else do you have them? Is it fair to ask college players to come back starting June first or is that completely unfair? How do people stand on that? I don't know how they stand. I think you're going to have public sentiment saying hey come back. But were not as concerned about that student athletes here and they just don't have a voice and they probably have to come back to keep their scholarship and I think it puts them in a precarious position. Yes he yeah. That's what I was just going to say that. They're on their almost held hostage now by that scholarship. If you want if you want your scholarship you have to come play. Yes paulie going. Back to the tailgate. That's a big quandary. When you go to games when people some people want to stay in the parking lot and and making it in for kickoff is not a big deal. I'm more of a true college football fan. I tried to get the tailgate. As early as mathematically possible. So when it's time for kickoff and you start hearing the band play and you see twelve o'clock at three o'clock. Let's start making our way in about a lot of guests by wife and other people we're GONNA hang out here for the first quarter. That's tough all right. We'll come up with a poll question.

Because that's still kind of lingering here at simmering here some bad blood here going on Scottie. Pippen reportedly really upset with Michael Jordan. And how he was portrayed in the last. I don't know of Scotty was going to do well in the last dance when you come to think of it with everything that happened with. Scotty he was a great wingmen and Michael said some nice things but then he also said some things. That were pretty tough for Scotty. To here we revisited sitting bowl where he decided he didn't want to go back in for a playoff game. When Tony? Coup coach Shod? There was a bad contract agreed. There was a lot going on with Scottie. Pippen and the fact that he wouldn't change anything. If you had a chance to go back to change that I'm GonNa sit out and not go in for the final two seconds.

Worth coming up here in a moment seth in Pennsylvania leads us off today. Seth what's on your mind and that I've been there from the beginning and never called Sur. Five eleven one seventeen. Why did you wait? So long. Seth Well this is actually Well let me just let me. Just say this off okay. The reason I'm calling in today is two years ago. I may twenty first todd. Fritz was preparing section row seats for its World Premiere. Carolina's lead evening okay. I'll keep this short. My girlfriend and I were actually in the audience that night. I tweeted a photo of me in front of the marquee uproot. We sat one table away from you guys but I did not say hello because the timing did not seen right and you said all week that you did not want fans of the show there but I wanted to try to help out fritzy does. No one's made me laugh more than the last thirteen years than him. And we were in the city. Celebrate my thirty eight so just Kinda all lined up as we all know. The set did not go that well for todd but for the show that night was pure gold but the biggest of the night for me and Dan. You miss this because you left right after joking. Got Off the stage and I don't think this was ever mentioned on the show but as soon as the next comedian was done. The Room was quiet. And mclovin POPs. Up and classic McLaughlin fashion noxious drink all over. The table tries to clean it up and then exit stage left. So thank you mclovin. You're making that seventy five dollars for this four drinks. Well worth it and thank you guys for having the best show in the world. I'm superfan thank you. Seth and we'll let you know if we can get fritzy back on stage again highly doubtful. He's a prideful man. He doesn't WanNa take jokes from Adam. Sandler David Spade Rob Schneider. Who would help him right? Who said we'll get to todd here coming up in a moment and we read. It'd make way for Chris Collins. Worth who set to join us now. He's not there. Yeah yes mclovin. That guy was definitely at the sand up because I grew in the whole table. But I think I think he got Chris. Oh we do Chris you their Dan. What's happening brother? Where are you right now? I am at Longbow G Florida. Having a good time I just got back from a about a three point two mile run which I used to be able to do backwards in my sleep now. I feel like I've got heart out the patients. I'm sweating all over myself and just barely making so there you go you remember when we used to be athletes brother. We were it up one. Oh yeah that was the older. I get the better. I was Chris. Tell me like this even have a light. I've been doing so many of these things. I actually have something to help the cause a little bit. You got any memorabilia behind you say if if I go into your house do you know? Do I know that you played football if you go into? Pf You know that. I played football. So obviously we're we're we're started that governor on shoestring budget and so all of the decorations my wife hotly were all stuff in crap and things that she did not want in her house so she'd kindly donated the PF so all any and all memorabilia that I have is down there and now it is literally embarrassing. I mean it's like you know my my when I went to summer basketball camp. I won the layup on. Just what I got. All that stuff. It's all out and A. Pf is pro football focus. What was the goal when you started this? I didn't start it. A bunch of guys in England were actually Neil Hornsby and the guys are the ones that actually started and I just literally was looking for help online they want me to post game. Show on NBC. And I said well. Hey that's a great idea except I never see any of the Games of the. No wonder we're doing Sunday night. I you know. Have it on in the background but I'm study at all day? Tried to get ready for our game as well so I start looking around. And I find these sheets in color coded things that EPA put out and so I plug in twenty six ninety nine and I say okay Blah Blah nicest. Pretty good. Because I've done a bunch of these dame recently side type in the little you know. Contact US thing. I said the hell. Are you guys and coaches or something like that and so about three minutes later? This Guy Neil Hornsby calls and with this British accent and as adults Neil Hunt. I can't go British accident so nice Chris and all I can think is this. Sob just hustle. Be Out at twenty six ninety nine. I'm so out of my mind mad. I can't stand so I said this. GonNa last about fifteen sites so I started. Firing all questions him about you know linebackers and guards and kickers and things that no way he's going to this. Brit knows anything about right. After about five minutes. I have shut up and just started listening. This guy knows way more about football knows way more about the league knows way more about everything than I and I said who in the hell are you and they had this Internet band of brothers put together about eleven them that was they just. They found American. Football interesting started when all the online stuff started back in the early two thousand in the nineties and ice and they had eleven or twelve teams. That were paying for their services at the time. It's just one of the most incredible stories that that you'll ever hear. And now you know. Thirty two teams and seventy something college teams and the networks. And it's been pretty hot. Pf recently simulated the twenty twenty NFL season said there is ten thousand. Games are times. They did this over and over and over. What was the big headline that you took away from this simulated twenty twenty season that. I have no idea what they're doing when they do that. It was you know it really is. You know it's it's almost about the the gambling part of everything that goes on. And so then you start going right. Here's what the over under is for all teams. You know this is the Pittsburgh steelers at nine and a half the Detroit. Lions at six and a half and so. I started going down the list and I said all right. I don't gamble but I part of me right. All of us would kind of light to you know we all look at these things go. I know more about football than anybody. I can certainly figure this out but I think the teams that did I would be personally interested against those numbers. I I like the steelers at nine and a half I mean returns. They had the twenty seventh ranked offense last year. That's going to happen again. Right team that lead in Saxon takeaways. The Detroit lions at six and a half with the return of Matthew Stafford. I think that that's a that's a good opportunity so I don't know that the Green Bay packers necessarily got better with what they did in the draft. You know they've got a backup quarterback now they've got people but they didn't go get a receiver. They didn't go get a corner. They get somebody that can really help the blocks at eight point seven so Tom Brady gets them to nine win. When's the last time Tom Brady to get a team? Denying Wednesday no sorry he's got. We had Chris. God what might Devon's is the number one and number six receiver all football. We know what their receivers were a season ago. In New England Naiad to that mix what about the other one I think is a Dallas cowboys I loved CB lay. I don't know if you've got a chance to see and hear CD lamb. I never scouted a guy in college football where Mike comment so I go through and I watched about an hour on you. Know the top sixty or seventy guys and my comments were always well in this game. He broke this loin. Daybreak five tackles or is seventy arts etched up this game. He broke six tackles for fifty yards test. Youngest me broke five. Tackles for fifty yard touchdown off the charts. I think he's GonNa be a star. Yeah I thought he was the best receiver in the draft. But I don't study it like you do in the scouts do but when you say break tackles. I don't even think they got close enough to tackle in Chris. I think that they had there needs to be a new category. It's not breaking tackles. It's actually alluding tackles because that's what OECD lamb did in the Texas game. It's like five guys Converge On. Him and I don't know if anybody put a Paul on him. I am is ridiculous Ba and the other thing is. I think that we're starting to see some of these got so it's a whoever won the super bowl right. We're all going to copy that. It's the forty niners had one. They'd all be buildings outside zones too tight ends and all that kind of stuff but the Kansas City chiefs line with Calcium Watkins goal hardman. And they go out and get this Edwards layer which is a an unbelievable guy. You're talking about somebody you can't tackle a neocon feel. As far as a running thing. We talked about Tampa Bay now loading up receiver the Dallas Cowboys for a Cooper. Michael doubt with CD manual. Sanders GOES NEW ORLEANS. Saints with Mike Tomlin's step on digs with John Brown and Colby's I mean you go right down the list. I think the Copycat League right now is that we're going to go. Just load up with all these unbelievable playmakers running backs in the league. Right now are fairly interchangeable. So let's go get a quarterback. Let's go get some of these great wide receivers and let's see what happens out there but it is turning into touch the ball. I mean it really is turning into. Let's put nobody in the backfield. Spread this sucker out and go throw it around or you've got the forty niners in the Shan style of play. Let's compact it like the rams like you saw the forty niners like you're going to see what the Green Bay packers a little bit and let's do the outside zone bootlegs and and the jet sweeps and everything he's Chris Collins Worth NBC Sunday night. Football color analyst with Al Michaels. Michele Tafoya couple of questions here will breeze through them. Joe Borough Start Day one the bengals. Yes I mean. What do you got to lose right? I mean a little bit. They're a little bit of your home. So I there's something about Joe Borough that I have liked from the beginning and tried to figure out what it was and I was watching their center. Getting ready for the drafts. And he's a nice player. I don't WanNa put them down at all. But he didn't like clean miss a few times pass protection that clearly was the weakest part of his game and so joe saw watching them. I was really watching the center but of course boroughs behind him and boroughs of ability to just step around some of these unblocked guys and make a little move and play. You Know Tom. Brady's not fast but if you watch Tom Brady. Throughout the course of his career he has a nice little feel for what's going on in the pocket and can kind of step around that and the other part of his game that I really like was he reminds me of my Guy. Troy now troy enjoy can be a little salty at times right like toys. Never GonNa have a problem telling you exactly how he feels about it. And of course with all the big personalities of the Dallas Cowboys back in the day in the day with Jerry and Jimmy and everything was going on. Michael Louis took that kind of no nonsense guy to pull him out of the pit mean. Don't forget trae first year league when they go one fifteen. And so. Now you've got a Guy. Save prohibition there let them learn on the job They're going to be a little bit better. The offensive line to add the first round pick last year that never played for them You know they got better receivers at this point sign Ta. And so. I mean I think at this point. You've got nothing to lose and when you look in the League right now Dan. What is happening is we have. We're doing a lot of study on this right now. Eric Eager Great Guy. Pf baffler doctor is taken a hard look at this thing at. What point do these rookie quarterback's on their rookie? Wage scale begin to outweigh the greatness of some of these veteran players. So as we get into we've seen rookie quarterback's excuse me go on to the Super Bowl almost every year here lately. So right the quarterbacks allow you to have a better team on the other end of so. Let's say. The Patrick Mahomes now breaks into the fifty million dollars. Thereabouts categories which I think he deserves honestly. I think he's the future of the NFL in so many different ways but as you begin to look at it in the comparisons that were making right now as as you get into that gap of one player making that much money is great. A player as he is. Is that the long term solution to winning. Or is it. The Lamar Jackson's in the jared golfs and all these guys who were on their rookie contracts. That allowed you to have these other players on the team. They're really gives you a best shot to win game so is that what New England's doing right now. I don't know but it is going to be interesting to watch. Well that's why I have to look at Cam not can't get to Cam Newton Dak Prescott situation and say is he worth this money a that. I think he's a good quarterback. But do I get to the point where I say? I'd rather try to find a quarterback that I can have that five year window four year window with the salary that like Seattle Seattle when Russ came in. They got a break and they were able to build that team. Dallas is at the breaking point. I think because you spent all that money on everybody and now that comes in reportedly turned down five for one seventy five at what we go and it's exactly the point. Exactly what we're studying right now. And we we. I'm saying we. I'm just going to throw out Eric Egar's Day because it's really he's the mathematician but that is exactly the line. We'll try to break it down with just quarterbacks right. The numbers came out very clear that the rookie wage sales gave you a great advantage but the clearer picture what was really going on was the totality of everything within within the League whether it was you had to add up the quarterback and the and the wide receivers and the offense of mine and the title. We sorta left the running backs out for now. We'll explain all that later But would you. You begin to add up all those categories. They sort of came out pretty close right. They were like you know like Baltimore headed great advantage so Baltimore. Lamar Jackson drafted late in the first row had to pay very little for their quarterback possession. So they could load up they consigned Claes Campbell. This off season. They could do something so they were more than thirty to thirty five million something like that. Maybe even low thirties. But then most of the teams that had a quarterback were up in the fifty to fifty five million dollar range. So that means now. If you come in and you'RE GONNA sign Patrick Mahomes for forty five fifty million dollars right. That scale is now going to slide up so high. What are you GonNa do right now? They able to sign two tackles on the Kansas City chiefs. They can play right. They have more wide receivers and they know what to do that. They have Kelsey that that. Is You know making good money. Chris Jones you gotTa make a decision on on the other side of the ball so at some point you don't get to say. I'm just going to pay this guy you gotTa Say. I'M GONNA pay this guy in it's going to cost me this guy this guy this guy this guy. And that's the decision is deck now works as long as you have a russell. Wilson drew brees Aaron Rodgers. Yes somebody CAL and the question for the Dallas cowboys very clearly. Now there's Dachshund net category. Yes or no. Would you sign that Prescott to that money? You know? I think playing quarterback for the cowboys is unique position. It takes a special person takes a big personality can handle the sort of the way of everything that comes with. Including Jerry is the owner including all the media attention including plan on prime time all the time And I think Jack is that unique leader and I honestly. He made a huge jump in my mind last year. I think he handles the pressure. I think he's plenty mobile enough in this league that I think is really making a bold move in that direction. I don't think the quarterback position will look anything like what we were used to ten years ago. Twenty years ago producer in here. I think he's plenty mobile enough. He's a really smart guy he can handle it. I would pay him in about the range or they're talking about now but if it starts getting up closer to the forty million or whatever plus I have a problem just based on the map that we're doing right now we're the ideal place for Camden crash. While the easy answers New England right I mean. That's that's where you'd look Cam and I think that Ham Kanza unique personality. You mean just is right. He likes the close lights flash. She Uses A. He's an interesting character to talk with I always thought that A place like New England were just forces you to focus like if I if I wanted to play somewhere and I played for Force Greg. My first couple years later anytime being able to focus guy. He was coming down the hallway towards me. I turned round went upstream I? I didn't I never wanted to pass them in the hallway and I think ballot. Jack allows you to have that kind of focus. I think he needs to extend his game just a little bit league as the physical tools. Do It. It'll take a lot of discipline on take some humility to to be able to sharpen the some of his skills especially now in light of the injury so I if I had to say I think that would be the interesting spot behind stem. Only be with this. How does it go wrong for Tom? Brady and Tampa. I don't think it does. I'll be perfectly honestly I. I really liked what they what they have. Gone there But mostly because I think Tom Brady was handed a shorter deck with the wide receiver position for the last few years here And now he's got players. They're obviously injury. Could come about but I feel like the only thing that could maybe be a bit of a problem especially now with Gronk on the team in in the short season right. I mean we're we've got. I don't know how Carolina's GonNa put a football team together. New Coach New quarterback new coordinators. And no time to be together. So maybe if they off to a slow start in Tampa because they haven't had that practice time that they're used to having and it's a top division in New Orleans gets better although maybe that's how it happens but I really am excited to watch Tampa this year. I really am. I think that that entire city is going to be a buzz. Think Tom Brady is lost anything. I should say US lost anything. Of course he's lost something but I really feel like that they have the ability to come right out and and play great football and I do think he's yes. Two good years at him and Bruce Arians as long as those to configure out a common offense or it's not Tom Brady and grind listen. We don't have time Bruce. The put in everything is what I know how to run. I'M GONNA teach my guys how to do it. And Somehow Bruce or left which or somebody that causes a problem but I just don't see that happening I really don't good stuff Chris my best to holly and thanks for joining us.

The first time they're playing Baker Mayfield obviously who was a very prominent person in the NFL and certainly in the world of college football obviously CD lambs quarterback at Oklahoma one of quarterbacks and so this is a lot of fun. One of the first heisman trophy winners the cowboys face this season obviously because the loss of play. Joe Borough and Lamar Jackson and Kyle Murray so. Get, ready for all of that. But before we get to the Browns, I do want to talk about one last thing concerning last week's game two loss to the Seattle seahawks. Now, a new podcast dropped I saw Michael. Irvin. Has a new podcast that dropped on Thursday by the way. So shout out to the playmaker of course but another new podcast with Chris, Collins Worth I've said this before I know it's not a popular opinion and that's fine. I'm sure you disagree I think that Chris cons worth is the best color analyst and the game. Love me some Tony. Romo. Feel. Anyway, we all know Chris Collins Worth does a lot of work because of his role in. The pro football focus well, he has a new podcast with pro football focus that he does with Richard Sherman cornerback for the San. Francisco Forty niners. Now, an interesting quote came out of this episode for me. Richard and Chris. We're talking about advantages that often have defenses. Here in the day and age of two, thousand, twenty and chairman brought up illegal contact. Now, we all know that illegal contact is a very costly penalty because it's an automatic first down. A lot of people obviously hate the pass interference a spot foul of people want to see a change to college rules, etc. But a legal contract is up there. So Richard Sherman was talking about how you know a lot of third and twenty twos I think is exactly what he said get converted into first downs because illegal contact took place on the left side of the field even at the right side of the field was where the action was happening so. They were talking about this and Richard Sherman. Well, I'll tell you what he said. This is his exact quote. I tweeted this out. If you want to read it for yourself, he said in the Seattle Dallas game, they gave Greg to catch after he had got pushed out of bounds because they gave the penalty to Jalen talking about Jalen Smith and about Africa, it may have been third fourth quarter of that ballgame was actually the end of the first half and it. Allowed them to get to a score. It was a penalty on Olsen for illegal touching stepped out coming back in. So would have been a loss of downs. It would have been a penalty Bang Bang Bang but instead they were at the one yard line and Russell Wilson was out of the pocket. So if he's out of pocket, he can shove him all he wants there's no illegal contact, but it's like the rest for God. It's plays like that where it's Like Hey, that was the difference between maybe three points and seven points. So a four point difference in a seven point ball game and I tell you this story exactly Richard Sherman said on the new podcast he's doing with Chris Collins worth because I am feeling optimistic I know that we have all really spent the last week kind of feel sorry for ourselves as cowboys fans, and really bombed and pissed off at this team is one into but I, think about that. Richards right quarterbacks out of the pocket. Those are the rules. There's no such thing as a legal context and that was a wishy-washy penalty that went against Jalen Smith. We all knew that when it happened in the moment and the end of first half that was a touchdown to Taylor Lafayette, which obviously was very costly for the cowboys again to Richard's point dig about of Seattle only ends up with a field goal there instead of touchdown than the cowboys don't need to touch on that final drive, we also talked about. In the aftermath of the cowboys lost all of the special teams gas and how those things cost the cowboys points, and that's where I'm optimistic. I didn't. You can look at the game, the cowboys played against the seahawks and I think that the seahawks are better I'm not trying to say the cowboys are but I think the seahawks are better but the cowboys almost basically went shot for shot with them and not necessarily having a hand tied behind. Their back. But with some weird wonky things that win against them life this special teams things those are controllable things that you can potentially adjust to be better in the future the illegal contacting you can't necessarily control, but theoretically, that shouldn't happen, and while we all have our fingers crossed officiating happens to the proper degree in the NFL. It is something that should work out of the cowboys benefit more often than not. So I'm optimistic that the cowboys. Have just run into some elite offenses. Sim Elite quarterback played I think I personally underrated Jared Goff Matt Ryan played it a great level of high level obviously had some help from the cowboys turnovers when the cowboys played Atlanta and obviously Russell Wilson's probably GonNa win MVP. So I am optimistic speaking of optimism. Let's talk about Thursday's practice report for the Dallas cowboys no practice again demarcus Lawrence listed with that knee injury trayvon digs who was a full. Participant in Wednesday's practice was eliminated participant with that shoulder issue on Thursday but the positive sign tyron Smith, who has had the neck issue that has kept him out of the last two games for the cowboys was eliminated participant, which is an upgrade from a d. n. p. on Wednesday. So Mike McCarthy. If you listened to his Thursday press conference in my humble opinion sounded a little bit more optimistic a little bit more bright when talking about Tara, Smith? and. So that's also why I'm feeling good I. Mean it look right now injuries are bad and obviously there's a lot of question about the NFL season as a whole I did a special emergency episode of the. Nation NFL show with Rob Carreira. Over on ESPN nations had a things where we talked about the titans and steelers game getting postponed. But on the injuries have things I do feel like things will normalize for the cowboys at some point. It's still very early and so while I know that confidence is down. I'm just I'm kind of thinking and maybe hoping worth anything that things are going to start bouncing the cowboys way and that's what I think. This game is we'll talk about in the pre game show on Sunday morning but I think this is the most proper measuring stick opportunity for the cowboys because while the seahawks was a great measuring stick to see, can you go toe? To Toe, with a team that you're supposed to go toe with the browns is an opportunity of can you beat a team that you're supposed to be handily and if you can then we can start believing in youtube or proper degree once again but it will be varying exciting once again later on today a brand new episode of girls talk and boys with Kelsey, Charleston Meg Murry tomorrow cowboy with Modise, to other reviews and the first episode of.

Morning I'm Rob Stats Guerrero today's Thursday October Twenty second twenty twenty here's what's happening with your San Francisco Forty niners Wednesdays are injury update days and yesterday was no exception Rahima Search Whiskey Tart Kwan Alexander and Trent Williams did not practice due to their various injuries but in a welcome twist Kyle Shanahan said, the team did get some good news when it came to Trent Williams. Ankle. Kyle. What did the extra imaging on that ankle show you and show that nothing was broken and? That it wasn't a high ankle so that was good news but still too much pain to practice today and I know he'll be questionable throughout the week. So it'll get better each day but it's not there yet when it comes to some of the other guys on injured reserve, the news wasn't great Richard Sherman is in a walking boot while his calf heels both he and e Ford aren't expected to return until after the week ten by which is about a month away. Earlier in the week cow Shanahan told us it was unlikely. The forty niners would make any trade before the deadline in about two weeks yesterday of course, the forty niners made a trade according to the NFL Networks Tom Pell Sarah they acquired linebacker, Jordan Willis. And a seventh round pick this year from the jets for a sixth round pick in twenty twenty, two Willis was drafted in the third round in twenty seven team by the bengals he's appeared in two games this season for the jets and didn't watch a quarterback hit or a sack on twenty six pass rushes. One more clip I wanted to play for you and it comes from Mike mcglinchey last week I ripped mcglinchey to shreds for not acknowledging how terrible he had played up to that point last week against the rams however, he was much better. I. Admit here was mcglinchey Wednesday talking about how the fuel from the critics and the diversity that the team has gone through could help them going forward the only way that you can materialize that through hard work and and tough. The last two weeks has been really really hard. We got kicked by Miami. We didn't close against Philli we need and we should have done that and for us to go through that kind of hard hard stuff excuse me had misleading until that moment on Sunday and it was building it was building and you have to you have to experience adversity. You have to experience tough tough times in order for those kind. Of moments to rise into for everybody to grow together and I think that's what we went through those two weeks after the New York trip and Hopefully, we can continue building on this momentum that we've gained on Sunday night and continue to play the ball that we know we can play but the games coming up on the schedule they gotta keep that momentum going because they're going to need every advantage they can get. We always give you something to read something to watch and something you might have missed something to read on this Thursday comes from something that was inspired by NBC's Chris Collins Worth during the Sunday night broadcast against the Rams Chris was giving Robert saw in defense a lot of praise for their style play against the rams. But how good has the Defense Ben Check out jazz kings posts on niners nation dot com the too long didn't read version. Pretty Damn good. You can always had to niners nation dot com for all the latest news and notes after. Of course, you listen US something to watch keep your eye on George Kitto on Sunday. If he gets a hundred twelve receiving yards against the Patriots, he would pass Mike Ditka for the most receiving yards by a tight end in his first fifty games in NFL history. Something you might have missed superstar wide receiver. Antonio Brown will finish serving his latest suspension from the NFL in two weeks and according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The seahawks are among the teams that are positioned to make a run at Antonio Brown just what the forty niners need. That's going to do it for this edition of stats and eggs lease rate review and subscribes the niners nation podcast network. You'll get this show you'll get all the great shows we offer including the gold standard podcast with myself and Levin. Black.

"Hey Chris what's happening man? Thanks for joining us in jail. What's happening you guys ever take a day off and you guys working weekends now? Everything Yeah we are man. I'm telling you they're asking us to do it. We love doing especially here in New York. We need this here. We need a distraction as you could probably well imagine and I appreciate your taking time out of your grandfather duties to join break. I never had so much fun and I've never slept so well at night is when I watch her all day. That's great so. Let me ask you first and foremost about Joe Borough income into the Cincinnati. Bengals you know this whole thing about you know quarterbacks going to the bengals and this is where quarterbacks go to die is the biggest myth in all of professional football there was a stat that was out there the other day. I saw it and I told Jeff Hobson who writes for the Cincinnati Bengals on their website. I said you know there have been four of us that have been drafted by the Bengals Kenny Anderson Myself Carson Palmer Andy Dalton and all of us have started at least ninety seven games for the Cincinnati Bengals so there is a history of being drafted by the Bengals as a quarterback and having a great deal of success in your career. Do you think that could be the case for Joe Borough absolutely I mean you know people act like this has been the biggest train wreck for the Cincinnati Bengals of all time? They went to the playoffs. Five straight years yeah. They didn't want a game. They should have won a couple of those games but they they ended up. They didn't But Mike Brown's I in my opinion is GonNa absolutely draft. Joe Borough I mean he is seen to bingles teams go to the Super Bowl. Both of those teams had. Nbp's playing quarterback you being one. Kenny Anderson the other one the MVP in the year we went to the Super Bowl And I think he believes like like most of us believe that you either have one of those guys or you don't is Joe. Borough GonNA be boomer Kenny. I don't know I mean you know who knows on any of these guys but I think so. I think he has a chance and the other thing I like about him is I think all great quarterbacks have a little something right. It's either their chairs mad acre. They're funny or they're crazy or insane and this reminds me of one of our golf tournaments. You know it's like that that whole group of guys is just they? They had unique characteristics. And I think Joe Borough when you watch him has a little. I don't know something I I ki- looks like he's in charge. It knows what's going on. Like he running. That offense to be has to escape and make a play. He can do it. You've got a lot of egos. He has a lot of playmakers on offense but it really looks like it. All flows through him which most really successful teams. That's out goes talking to my former teammate. Chris Collins Worth as far as I'm concerned the best analyst on TV and You know when we talk about Joe Borough Chris. Here's the thing. He's from Athens. Ohio about two hours outside of Cincinnati for me it would be corporate suicide for the bengals not the draft him and the second part of it is. I just heard him do a podcast with Michael. Oxley. Who is now? The head coach at the University of Maryland You know well that was to excuse me but anyway jober with shock I should say Joe Check saying look man. I've never lost anything that I've ever done from high school to College. I'm a winner. I just WanNa go where I can win. So that tells me is that he is uber confident about himself so the personality the excitement in the Cincinnati area I would imagine they'll sell thousands more of a season tickets when we all get back to normal a little bit but this is a to me anyway. It's so obvious that the bengals have to take him. Yeah I think that's right and and you know they've done some things in free agency that we haven't seen the bengals do a lot in the past right. I mean they they yup. Aj Green which was great to begin with. They signed a couple of quarterbacks off the vikings at Mckinsey Alexander Trait Way and and they pick up. Dj Reader and DJ reader had a great year and signed him to a four year. Fifty three million dollar contract trae rains three years. Forty two million dollars. I mean when's the last time you can remember the Bengals doing that? Free Agency so I think they're taking a shot And let's face it the the one thing that's really interesting in football right now and in particular in the AFC. I think of Joe Boroughs starting quarterback. It'll be ten of sixteen quarterbacks in the AFC on the contract which is pretty amazing when you stop and think about it what it does is it flips the NFC on its head. So you know all the the Great Star quarterbacks on that side and these thirty to thirty five million dollar quarterbacks salaries that they've gotta pay and in the AFC. They're all playing on young inexpensive quarterbacks and building the rest of the team so it's really a pretty good chance to see which style is going to be most effective as as we go forward talking to Chris Collins worth if you want a great deep dive into prospects in the draft. You need to check out pro. Football focus pro. Football focus is the best website for football information in the business. Right now hands down and it has helped me win a bunch of fantasy football leagues well daily fantasy football as well you got. I mean there's geniuses over there man I gotTa Thank Jeff Ratcliffe. Works for you guys. You really got the best staff over there so I highly recommend it as people get ready for the drafting this football season coming up. So as obvious Joe Borough seems to the Cincinnati Bengals. Do you feel that same obvious? Feeling about chase young going to the Washington Redskins No no I think there's a lot in play right there in and to Tonga Viola. I've been practicing name a little bit. is is the the guy that physician right. I mean Is it possible? Washington can take him. I guess it's possible. I think it's probably more likely if somebody falls in love with him that they try and trade up to that position And then the draft gets really interesting from there because If in FACT THEY DO TRADE UP. There's a lion stay with the obvious. Need of cornerback. Them with Jeff. True to You know I think maybe but it chased young were to fall. Would they take that if we're whatever reason they stuck With with Khuda then does taste young. Fall Away. The four with the giants. You know I mean. There's just all kinds of different scenarios that happen. I really think There's there's two headlines here if you will for their strapped one or the quarterback at the top and and that's always going to be the story To is the wide receiver class I I don't think I ever prepared for a draft and gone. Oh my gosh. I DIS the first rounder. You know my gosh guys. The first rounder and by the end of it I had guys were in the second round for me. That would have been in the first round any other year in the history that. I've studied the draft I think there's some fantastic players the guys at the top of the charts you know. I think deserve to be at the top of the charts and and I don't WanNa put them down at all. I mean Jerry Judy and see lamb. And people are kinda throwing henry rugs in there because of his speed. But I think those top two guys in particular for me. Cd Lamb Looks like the Star but there are. I'm telling you in the third round of the strap you're going to get some guys that may end up being pro bowlers Every single year and then the other part of the the headlines from this one or the tackles I mean. There are a lot of drafts that we go through. And I watch all the tackles and I go. I don't like any you know I I don't I don't think any of them belong in the first round. And you watch these guys and I would say I think they'll be five taken in the first round and maybe more for all I know and so it's a it's a rare opportunity to do one or two things here. Either you go to the top in and you know some teams may WanNa take two receivers right Some teams may want to say you know what the receivers are so good. I'm GONNA pass on on a CD lamb or Or one of the top guys. Jerry Judy one of those guys. 'cause they are so good down in the second round down in the third round so those will be the big move areas for me. It's like what's the rarest thing and the draft. I think it's it's the past Russia's so I I think the chase young Because he's he's not easily replaced and the scrap. I think there are other guys who are pretty good But I think he's the one where there's the biggest gap it is you know. It's kind of interesting if that all happens like you'd think it may happen with Washington may be taken to a and chase young fall into number four th the giants. I can guarantee you. The giants are going to take him. And then I think the giants would then obviously have a great chance at another tackle a little bit later on in the draft which would be great for them as well. But here's here's something that's going on right now. Chris and what I don't is what Mike Lombardi just tried to do to to a tongue of Iowa and coming out and saying that already two teams have failed him on on his physical. I don't know he gets his information from. I don't know if people are violating hippo laws. Or what the Hell's going on out there kind of I kind of feel like it happened to me during my draft. Somebody of significance started starts to say something negative about you and how that influences may be some decision makers I don't know but I do know this Lombardi ballot check and saving all were together in Cleveland And obviously they're all friends and they know each other Why would Mike Lombardi come out and be so negative about the health of to a ton of Iowa right now two weeks before the draft the way he was you know I I I think there are more games played in the draft? And there there are in politics these days. I I mean I think of all the things that whether it's agents whether it's you know teams whether it's for you know whatever. Rumors moved the draft more than anything else in particular late rumors Remember Laremy Tunsil a couple of years ago the whole thing with the smoking dope and the mask on his face came out like you know the half an hour before the draft kind of thing And I thought he was. One of the best. Examples was the best tackle in that draft day. How about how about the tweets about Josh Allen Right before that draft when Baker Mayfield number one to Cleveland Remember tweets Josh Allen? Put out there and all of a sudden somebody found in. Somebody released them all of a sudden the night before the draft. Isn't it amazing? The timing of that so you go all right. Why would anybody do that? Well if you're the agent for the other quarterback or the other tackle or the other whatever you can flip flop your guy from number fifteen of the number four it because that team needs to. I mean that's big money so that the game within the game. I think that you know just like if you decide. You're going to run for president of the United States. You better have some pretty thick skin. I think the same thing's true with some of these kids and now you add on top of it that they can't travel in and they can't do the individual physicals. Some of the guys that are that. Have some injury concerns. Even though they've had physicals that are shared with every body. It's not quite the same is showing up at the facility and taking one more fiscal right before the drafts I think benefit of the doubt is not going to go with the guys that good Have any kind of an injury. Chris Collins Worth of pro football focus of course NBC sports. It's boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports radio. I'm KINDA tired of Tom. Brady to the buccaneers at this point. And how that's going to work. I think a lot of people think that it is going to work. What I'm more curious about right now. Is What Bill Bella check in the Patriots? You'RE GONNA do with that position. Are we really going to see Jarret? Stidham and Brian Hoyer and that is the case. Do you think that the Patriots can compete with that quarterback room? Well there's there's a couple of pretty good quarterbacks out there one for Clemson and Trevor Lawrence and the other one planned for Ohio state and field coming out next year. That ARE PRETTY. Dang good and you know I don't think anybody ever intentionally loses in the NFL and bill. Pellet Jack would certainly be at the top. The list is somebody who's never gonNA intentionally try to lose But it'll be really interesting to see what teams do when you have to. I N quarterbacks that may well be sitting at the top of the draft in the following season. I personally I don't like you know it. Also I guess it didn't start but they gained so much momentum with the tank for two would all that kind of stuff I think it's bad for the game I really do. I mean we were at the end of the year especially in Cincinnati. We're paying more attention to what Miami was doing Because you wanted the Bengals to lose more games ended Miami and then they played head to head and almost everybody in cincinnati cheering for the bengals. Lose right so I think there's something strange about that. I I know the NBA and other places. You know do some sort of a lottery. Do something like that Getting pretty close to time right. I think that has to be considered. It's always Chris Collins Worth and Chris. Pf PRO football focus. You guys basically. You guys aren't scouts. But you do have X. Coaches you have a lot of ex players. They're all looking at film. They're all putting data and you guys are just trying to find who the best players are and I follow you guys on on twitter. All the time and Sam does a great job explaining as to why he thinks somebody's going to go first over somebody else. In a couple of years ago we had him in studio and he swore that Baker Mayfield was going to be the number one pick and he turned out to be the number one pick. Do they do? They have that same feeling about the quarterbacks in the way that they're ranked and and do they also take into account who the guy is where he came from. How many sports? He plays like what I love about. Joe Boroughs. He was a point guard in high school and his all state basketball player. I've loved the fact that he played those dual sports was the captain of his teams. Never lost and basically was a great athlete in that regard does pf take that stuff into account as well. Yeah when Mike Renner's league draft guy now and he's got over a thousand pages of the strap guy that he has an and we've got this. Pf mock simulator On our site right now. That actually crashed our site. At one point. It was insane. It has been the biggest thing we've ever done But basically you can punch in whatever you want so if you want just the BFF data to show how the draft pick any team. You want To how the draft GONNA go and boom. It spits out all thirty two teams in the first round including your team if you WanNa know. Pf Data and just the average of all the mock drafts Around you know the football universe Then you can take just the that way as well so it's been a great tool for me to just sit and play with time after time after time all these different scenarios that I could dream up and my head But the the answer your question is yes and no for the grades for the PF grades. It is only about production so a lot of times players. Get Mad at US. Or you know whatever coaches or whatever and we don't we don't care who you're playing we don't care if you're playing against an all American and we don't care if you're playing against the lowest tackle on God's Green Earth we simply grade your production that so when you see the grades the grades are just the production right but when you talk about the draft the draft has brings together all the grades which is certainly a factor you know. It's like the Combine. Become the factor. But it's not the deciding factor the PF grades of their production. In college is a factor. But as you well know boomer I I almost would rather have the guy with the greatest competitive spirit on my team over somebody with talent. I'll take all tim. Krumrie is you can throw my way. I'll take all the boomer size and you can throw my way. I mean there's some guys that just refuse the loose think of James Brooks you know that mindset of how he was put together and he just he just wasn't gonNA lose right and and and so. I don't think that you can save the PF grades or the end all be all for who you're going to draft but I do think that you know it's part of the equation so I hate to give boomer a lot of compliments because his head is big enough these days but I'll give him a couple of now. He is a great tea made in his old age he is. He's a great teammate. He really is there for all of us. He's a leader. He makes sure that everybody is taken care of so boomer in his late fifties as a spectacular teammate he spectacular friend a sized in when he was a young whippersnapper in the NFL having a little bit of success when you were his teammate. Was He as good of a teammate? As he is now now. Here's the bomb. Here's above that now. But I you know the funniest thing about boomer was that nobody had ever seen a tornado like boomer size. When he came at our locker nobody not one person you go back and ask as anybody on our team. Did you ever play anything by BLOOMER DOPE? I May know I've never saw him and I never came in. He adds the veteran player to to for his locker. He has a veteran player for his number boomer was in charge from the minute. He got there when we went to training camp first year and we all slept on these crummy little college dorm beds and our guys away. Three hundred pounds. I am not kidding. Literally they're asked would go through the springs and touch the ground in these cots that they gave us if we're trying to do and within days boomer had called the local mattress factory or something. I don't know what happened. And I mean these truckloads of these humongous king sized beds. Show up in these dorms. They don't only one of them would fit in the dorms where we were and all of his offensive. Lineman were were had these monster teams bad and you know sometimes to Lineman or sleeping on the bed together. There's like it was a free for all it was a freak show you know? That's but that's my boy. I mean that's the way it's been since the day I've known of We've had more fun. The first time he ever got paid to chat the first he was the first guy ever to make a million dollars was the bengals and we all freaked out about it so when he got his first pay check. I stole it and So that we were in l. over that I really just fine. I mean we really and everybody has their own image of the bengals. Whatever it was for the decades of the eighties to translate the Super Bowl and I we had a great time. It was while we certainly did. And I gotTa tell you Chris. You're one of the best guys that I could have ever had my rookie season. Even though I almost got you killed a couple of times I say that You and Chris Kreider and Pat McNally Kenny. Anderson Anthony Munoz maximum Toyota James Brooks You know you name it just so many great guys on that football team. And that's why I say you know it's not as bad as everybody perceives it to be. It's just that the bengals don't really ever celebrate their history and their players. So that's why we have to do it ourselves. And that's the way I always feel when I talked to. You feel like when I'm talking to Kenny Anderson or somebody like that is that we do have a rich history. It's just unfortunately it doesn't get celebrated and hopefully Joe Borough. We'll add to that history and I think he will and I think he's going to be great for the Bengals One more so boomer mentioned the fact that he is by his rookie year he he threw it hard. I mean hard the ipad the ever told me with right through my hands for interception. I was like Oh my God. I've never seen anything like though so I'd rather go round jobs profusely for but he didn't stop throwing it. He must have thrown me seventeen or eighteen balls that game and one of them. I kinda got flipped upside down and landed on my back and I don't know what happened. I mean but I I'm wearing the next day you've ever seen the movie. North Dallas forty. That was based so I get a knock on the door. I literally fall out of bit. I might nothing on. My body was functioning so they keep pounding knocking rigging the door. But I like what else on here? I almost crawling to the front door and I get up there and there's curl pretty cute girl where the table and she goes boomer. San Before you and I said you're sore for even that I get down here. They come on in here. What are you thinking about Chris? We appreciate the time. It was great talking to you. We'll let you get back to the babysitting duties in. We want everybody to know checkout pro football focus and the draft stuff they have up there so comprehensive it is great and we'll see on TV sooner than later hopefully Jail boom good talking to you guys. Use your brother say man. That's a great new home. That is unbelievable. It's great I love his response was I'm to soar even for that?

Its last eleven games against a top five opponent. That since two thousand. They had a win against michigan. Gone oh and five under brian kelly and the fighting irish win over a number one team overall nineteen ninety-three versus florida state seven point underdogs and i've watched a lot of both notre dame and clemson this year and i think notre dame looks a lot different than they did at the beginning of the year. They run the football. Well i think the defense is a lot better than you think. And it really comes down to the quarterbacking play. You're going to have to take some shots. Come up with some big plays but clemson coming to town and this is a. This is a good test for both of these schools. Find out if notre dame belongs in the final four and clemson is the favorite with a backup quarterback and being a seven point favorite. I was told it would be double digits as far as if trevor lawrence was there but dj who young. Leyla he is who look good against bc. It was the defense i think. Dj you that they need to come up with t shirts dj you. Yes we call them. Rg three for years. we'd still be calling. Rg three weren't call him. Robert third oh. Bj dj you especially becomes a great quarterback just makes his life easier our lives easier. This weekend on nbc. You got saturday night. Primetime it's clemson notre dame and then an all new saturday night live sunday nascar crowns a champion phoenix coverage begins to eastern and then it's breeze versus brady buccaneers saint sunday night. Football coverage begins football night. Americans seven eastern. Chris collins worth will be on the call with al michaels with that game. Chris join is coming up in about twenty minutes from now quiet. Nfl trade deadline antonio brown is active for the game. Coming up sunday night. And i went back and looked from twenty two thousand and eleven to twenty eight eighteen. Antonio brown led the nfl in receptions eight hundred and twenty one receiving yards just over eleven thousand receiving touchdown seventy four. He's play just one game in the to season since then. He had four catches for new england in week. Two of last year he would probably be a rough estimate here. He would have thirteen thousand yards. He'd probably have a thousand catches already and he would probably have. Maybe ninety nine touchdowns if i just looked at his numbers from two thousand eleven to two thousand eighteen and i don't know how important the hall of fame is for him. I think just getting back and playing football and tom brady embracing him having antonio brown stay at his house as he gets ready to make his debut on sunday night. Antonio brown is set to meet with the media today. And i don't know if there's anything off limits there i mean you start to run down the things. This isn't a second chance. This is like the ninth chance. There's a lot of things that are still in play with antonio brown. But tom brady wanted him and and brady is not the only guy. Russell wilson wanted him. This isn't just brady. Wanted him and looks the other way with everything that's gone on. Within tonio brown there are other teams including seattle reportedly interested in antonio brown. But because it's tom brady. It feels like when you look at an nfl tweet or twitter. It's about you know how could brady do this. Brady wants to win. they home. Want to win. Russell wilson wants to win. There's a lot of characters. There's a lot of bad guys. You only need him for three months. That's it and maybe you do something with him. You get to a super bowl may be win a super bowl and then you decide if you wanna keep antonio brown. But he's done you a favor you've done him a favor and then maybe somebody will take a chance on. There's so many things. I still don't know what happened. When he went into the cryotherapy in burned his feet and then you have lawsuits sexual assault in there. He threw furniture off the balcony. There's so many things involved with it. I think he got he got into an altercation with a guy who works for a moving company called the commissioner of racist. I don't know where you start with him. And tony dungy was with yesterday. And he said look. I'm all for second chances. I'd like to hear some contrition here. I don't know if you're going to hear them with antonio brown something changed with antonio brown and i i have no documentation. I have no sources on this. But when i think back to the hit that says perfect laid on him in the steelers bengals game. It just felt like antonio brown became a different player. And i wondered for his health. I wondered mental health. Like just get him better as a person not. Hey you wanna come in and play football you gotta get right and he went off the rails and it just felt like now maybe there was a lot going on behind the scenes with the steelers. We know that he was a character inside there. When he's videotaping. Post game speech by mike tomlin. He's not supposed to be doing that. He wants to get his instagram or twitter followers or whatever he's doing on social media and maybe it was just like a perfect storm that all came together at the same time and it just felt like he became something different than what we really enjoyed fell in love with your around him. We were around him at the houston super bowl. He came in. He could not be more charismatic. And you you kind of full yourself you go. And he's a good guy. But izzy. I don't know i don't want him on my team i wouldn't i. I'm all for second chances. But you know if you're a fan of tampa bay. What choice do you have here. Like paulie was a fan of the cubs and they brought in chapin role as chapman and he had baggage to. Well what happened. You wanna world series. with chapman's. you're closer you'll take it. It's tough it's tough sometimes when you're a fan of a team and they bring a guy that you really don't like what he stands for what he does what he's done who he is but when they go out there and perform yet kind of accept it he's he's he's ours young. I'm looking at a longtime incidents for antonio brown if you go back to the steelers as they start out. Kind of innocent self-centered like promoting stuff remember. We did the the facebook live and the clinton in the locker room with coach. Tomlin talk in the background. Then it gets a little weirder. When he was on the raiders. Last year fourteen months ago he threatens to retire from the nfl because the lead band his kind of helmet that he used for ten years and then he wasn't joking. In general manager had to get involved in the coach to get involved to get him to play football with the different helmet. And then it just ramps up week by week it gets worse incidence with moving vans and and live streaming hollering people on the street and it. It just gets drastic and he's still got that trial a civil civil civil trial. Is that a sexual assault trial or is it a rape trial. I think the word being used as sexual assault okay. And there's domestic violence accusations illustrated last year which made the patriots released him. He made a debut with september. Fifteen two thousand nineteen five catches forty fifty four yards and the patriots win. He's cut two days later and brady reportedly was trying to keep him on the team. And look if brady can somehow resurrect his career. I'm talking about antonio brown and help him. It's fine the really. The bigger picture is not that he can still play football. I just wanna know. He's right mentally because the things that he's doing some of it might be for attention but there's other stuff that's involved in this that i think there's some other things at play. The club. there was a lot. There was some monday morning quarterback that there's a reason antonio brown went to eastern michigan. There's a reason he fell. The six round like people knew the character that that came out. But i'd never heard it until till the raiders central michigan central michigan. Sorry yeah like. He obviously was talented enough to go to school in town enough to remember when he recorded a conversation that jon gruden like gruden called him and he was recording it and released and then released. It makes his debut coming up on sunday night. It's always the guy who's talented. Who gets the second chance. And his third or fourth or fifth chance. They never go. That guy's not very good. But i want to give them a second chance antonio brown. We'll talk to. Chris collins worth on how he thinks tampa will use antonio brown yeah. He'll join us coming up. I saw this headline. Dr fauci expects limited capacity for sporting events deep into twenty twenty one. This is via sports business. Daily doctor found she said that limited capacities for american sporting events likely will continue deep into next year. He explained that even if a really good vaccine is developed mask wearing will continue well into the third or fourth quarter of twenty twenty one also said that there will be quote a gradual progression towards normality ultimately. When we get this under control not only at the domestic but at the global level we will start to approach will be call normal. Dr fauci said. I don't think that it's going to be at a level where people are going to feel like there are no public health measures to be implemented until we get to the end of twenty one twenty twenty one. At least yeah. I think we're in for at least another year. Feels like to what degree having fans depending on what sport you play in the nba hindered. Because you're indoors football outdoor stadiums. How many fans can you have. At what point do we start to expand that a little bit. And i do wanna mention what i said at the. I don't know probably twenty five minutes ago wisconsin's in a real serious situation where their season could be forfeited. I i don't know who's going to be available for the michigan game. They've already had two games. They've missed they're not going to be factoring in for the national title. But if you have another game cancelled then from what i'm told. Wisconsin is running the risk of forfeiting their entire season and camp. Randall would be used as a hospital. Because of the spikes in wisconsin so that was a source told me that yesterday and they would get their starting quarterback back there in fact their first and second string. Quarterbacks would be back for the michigan game. we just don't know how many players are going be available for that game because it's twenty one days in the big ten in. That goes back to what happened with trevor lawrence. It's not ten days in the acc as my source told me it's fourteen days. And that's why. Trevor lawrence will be available to clemson on monday next. Monday is when he'll be available. Yes bowling this or the sec. There would be monday football. Notre dame versus clemson on a monday night. They were move that game. Some yes some. We got to play this game on tuesday afternoon. Somehow the state is available. All right. Mclovin poll question. Do you have for me. Yeah we put paul he special. We have the best quarterback in the league or the number twenty seven. Pick eighty four percents at the best quarterback. That question is an over-simplification though. Isn't that what it should be though. If you're the packers do you bring up the packers every time. But if you're the seahawks packers do you care what helps you get a title this year and won't help you title three years. What am i giving up a first. Okay okay. I got up first. Rounder up cool with miami new contract not this year and then i definitely bring on. Stefan gilmore for a second round. Pick for late first round. Pick if i'm kansas city. I don't think they need him as bad as the packers. But it doesn't matter. Yeah i want to keep him away from you. If i'm kansas city and i can get that guy who i don't wanna face in the playoffs and their pick is gonna be the thirty first pick in the draft or you know around there. Yes see. I think in the moment you don't care what happens three years from now but three years ago. The patriots won the super bowl. And the whole talk this year is how did you guys blow up this whole team. You completely screwed everything up. Making these moves so i mean right in the moment you're like yeah we'll take that ring but then that's only gonna last nine months because then you're going to be wondering why you ruined everything. But then they didn't use their picks wisely. That's the problem. So they had first round picks. They just whiffed on their first round picks. Nikiel harry is a big there. So i think if i can trade and get stefan gilmore and. I'm giving up my first round draft pick. Then i've got a guy that i know is good bordering on great for the next three years questions. Do i wanna pay you know. These teams would rather draft somebody and then they have them for four or five years and they have met a moderate price. Stefan gilmore is gonna cost you you know. And he's not happy with his contract. The apple i agree with the bears trading for khalil. Mack they give up the entire future one player and he is very good but they've lost a lot of draft capital. I think the the packers are closer than the bears. Were and as more of a timing play to me than a draft. pick play. well you have to know what kind of team you have because if you feel like we have one piece that's missing and it felt like the patriots new that when they got durell rivas. They knew we get him. Were winning the superbowl and it turned out that way. I don't know if you say to green bay you can get stuff on more okay. We still can't stop the run seattle. Yes mclovin yeah. Green bay doesn't walk right. They have a raheem oester basically. Well if they don't have to face the niners then then. That's pretty good hawks. Oh one hundred percent. Perfect for him. You know. I think the seahawks have i think. They like their defensive backs. Yeah they have a really good player. Jets guy i'm coming back so he can cover up for a lot to know but going back to the packers. The packers must look at this. Nfc and say we want to worry about the nfc east. Have to worry about the nfc north. We gotta worry about tampa in seattle. Those are the really contending teams. They don't have to worry about the niner's anymore. The rams not really see the saints. Yes ish yeah. I don't rule out the saints they. They're they're quietly winning really close games and you still got camaro thomas. coming back. defense can be really good. You've got sean payton. Drew brees can be really good young club. They got sanders and thomas. Coming back for that big game feels like they're playing possum. Why is michael. Thomas outplayed you ask jordan. Yesterday i didn't even understand his answer. He doesn't know and if he does no he's not telling me he said. Michael thomas will play when michael. Thomas is told to play what what does that mean. That might be the doctor's telling him he can play it. Feels like there's two two different reasons why there's something with michael. Thomas and his personality teammates teammate. And then there's the injured ankle. And i don't i don't know what is fact and fiction. It feels like there's some. I don't know if it's animosity but michael thomas feels like he's angry at somebody the saints organization. We'll take a break. We'll talk to chris collins. Who by the way. Congratulations to major league baseball. If you wanted to hand out the golden glove gold glove awards and nobody know that you were doing it. Well done hey you want. We're going to hand them out. Tuesday night great. Not that we make a big deal of the gold gloves but the only reason why make a deal of it now is because you really basically said nobody cares about the gold glove. This is like the hidden ball trick. This is the hidden glove trick. Nothing to see here. By the way. Paulie came to me privately and said i've been explosive. I team report. And he said it could make our show. Is mike quoting you correctly. It's the report of the year by the.

If wisconsin can't play six games there's a good chance with the state's spiking with cova cases. They will shut down the season camp. Randall a possible field hospital. My source goes on to say. They won't have a full roster when they play michigan. But we'll have both quarterbacks returning their game against purdue cancelled. We don't know what's going to happen. Their game against nebraska was canceled and it looks like If one more game is cancelled they might be shutting things down and turning camp randall into a possible. This possible field hospital.

Tom brady and drew brees. It's a big event weekend on nbc. Also the breeders cup classic. On friday and saturday clemson notre dame in primetime saturday night nascar cup series championship on sunday afternoon. How's morale chris brother. You started going through wisconsin and michigan. I thought i was listening election now. Do you do what i do. You sit up and every election night. I used to love doing this even though he's during the season and your little worn out anyway old thing but i would love sitting up watching the whole election night coverage in a little bit of the history of it and everything and now it's like election month election week you know. I don't even know what you'd call it anymore. I did not stay up to watch it. Because i think that it's probably going to be a few days before this is even called so i i just thought no matter what is said tonight or last night. There's no finality to it. I'd rather just wait. Let it all spill out and then sort of slice and dice and consumed after that. Got to say. Hi to bobby knight there. I miss the. And bobbie used to come to all the events around town. I got a chance to see him part of a lot. One of my all time favorites. So that's some collection. You got going on that desk right there. Oh yeah yeah yeah. I just collect everything. What's the greatest peace best piece of sports memorabilia. You have you know which one i i kinda liked the most is. I've got everybody's autograph on the nine thousand nine hundred eighty olympic hockey on a picture. You know the picture of them going crazy at the end of the day and always wanted to put. I need to get album. Do a thing where you know the call the game are you. Just push a button by the pitcher. Push a believe. How does Tom brady incorporate. Antonio brown. Or bruce arians do this on such short notice. I think he's a perfect fit for this team right now. I mean i'm assuming antonio brown still antonio brown okay. I'm just. I'm just going to say this. I'm just gonna talk football for a minute because the one thing in watching the tape here of tampa is that they they really miss having that inside threat you know how many times we've seen tom brady james white or whatever it just one on one you go up on the linebacker you make a break to the left you make a break to the right get him the ball beautifully accurate thrown pass and they really don't have that right now i mean that's not ronald jones is game it's not leonard for nets game coming out of the backfield they're a good power running team this is one of those old school offenses tampa and it's starting to come together It looks like tom brady in new england. Now i mean the they don't run a ton of zone stop. They run more power blocking downhill physical in it every week that i watched them. It looks a little bit better than it did the week before. Of course the play action off of that. But now they even have mike evans in the slot with no chris. Godwin even mike evans starting to come down and playing in the slot. Gronk is looking better than he was looking a few weeks ago. So all these pieces are coming together. I just think what they're still missing. Is that middle of the field threat against man to man coverage just that quick change of direction kinda guy and and you know who's better at that than antonio brown or at least. He was better at that than anybody else. I also was looking at the offensive line. And i did have questions about that offensive line but they been together for the most part this entire season. And if you look at all the injuries to all the other offensive lines around the nfl. Kind of remarkable that. I think they've only missed a few plays together and brady. It feels like understands or they understand. Brady just give me this amount of time and we're fine like that. That's almost like the blocking scheme would have you seen. They're better than that. They really are because their physical running the ball. Remember the old play. I bet i've drawn up this flavor. Patriots games thousand times the guard pulls out they have a deep play action pass and then you hit gronk over the metal right. I mean that's that's sort of their bread and butter. Well they're getting back to that now and they're getting back to that now because they can run the ball effectively. So you're starting to see these guards pulling. I'm starting to see some old counter trays from the washington redskin days. It's a very old school. They jumbo allot. They'll they'll put in. Johannesburg is is the sixth offensive lineman but when you start pounding in the ball and running the ball with tom. Brady is your quarterback. Now you get back to that. Play action to guard. Pools linebacker jumps up to try and fill the gap. Here comes gronk behind. Here comes evans and and we have yet to see this offense complete. We have yet to see all the receivers on the field. It's been a really tough year for rock. He's not block and like you used to block because he's got that bad right shoulder he's just getting creative turning a shoulder trying to make blocks different things but i think as you as you project this team forward if they can get healthy again and if this offense wine stays together i think they could be pretty darn good but you know more about tampa or new orleans a little bit more about tampa at this point only because we were getting ready to do tampa and vegas and then we got coveted out of that one. Trent brown got sick. They we didn't know if we're going to do the game. And so then they were telling rebellious like at your guys called. You can stay on. That game cancelled. We'll give you another game but you might be calling carolina from the booth in las vegas. I was like what i with like a day's notice you know and like oh. That doesn't seem very smart. So then it got down to where you're going to move the truck right. So we're in vegas so yeah we'll take. We'll take the game in new england. That was i. Think for san francisco that way but we couldn't get the truck there so then it ended up. The next closest place was arizona seattle at arizona and ended up being a fantastic game so once again the the luck of the irish damper. He's chris collins worth. You'll be on the call sunday night football and of course majority owner pro football focus. The chris collins worth podcast. Would you trade for veteran this time of the year if you were green bay. Let's say you could get stefan gilmore and it was gonna cost you. I gender ethnic no. I wouldn't take step on. Because the reason they're trading. I think is that he got hurt. You know the add something with his knee or whatever right. The old buyer. Beware right this time of year. You have to know. Why is that guy up on the trading block and and to and the one thing you know about bella chac is that he will trade them a year too early. So if you're right on the break and you think you're one player away. Maybe i wouldn't mind doing that. Deal with bella. Check because there's a lot of gm's and coaches out there they don't have the ten year plan anymore right there on the brink of losing their jobs and i always thought that was one of the weaknesses of the design of having gm's and coaches beg all the decisions about the organization is when these guys start getting on the bubble or restarted struggling. Well of course. I'm gonna trade tomorrow's draft choices for today. Because i gotta keep my job first and foremost so you always have to watch that bit as well as some of these deals. Come down what about. Jj watt does he have value in the open market. Of course yeah. Of course a first round draft pick for. Jj want if you're throw out anybody who needs help green bay can't stop the run like what green bay and you give a late first round draft. Pick for jj one. That's a really interesting question. I think the ordinary scott would be no just because he's a little older and has the history of injuries second round pick. Possibly if you thought you really really right there on the brink of something you know i listen. I played until i was thirty and it felt like i got the twenty nine and i was feeling good. I'm still going out dancing and having fun in the clubs and doing elect. I got the thirty. And i became old man everything everything. I don't know what it was now. These guys probably know how to train and take care of their bodies better than i did. Wait wait dancing in the club. Well yeah. I had my yeah. My fiance was with at that time. If you want to be that specific with it. Yeah but yeah. That's how we used to get loose man after a game. I swear after a game this we did it all the time. Because you get the lactic acid you get you know you go from man. I feel greatly in the stadium. Let's go out. We're going to go partying. And then he goes. Sit on the couch. And i used to watch you know you guys do your highlights and do all that kind of stuff and and then you get up an hour later and you can't move right like you know you feel like that. So then what do you do you go out and you have a cocktail. You start dancing a little bit. Everything gets loose again do you. How do you hold a grudge against anybody who played against holder grudge against anybody. I played the only the only guy who really drove me crazy but cheap bay. Take a shot that you just never let go of that frank. Mannix field called his shot on me and said he signed a big game against cleveland. I had about one hundred and fifty yards the first game. We played them. Franklin field said he was gonna knock me out of the second game in the newspaper in the newspaper. Said he's gonna knock me out. I like oh okay. I said i from the curse play. I'm going down and take a fifteen yard penalty. I am shopping. This guy's legs. I'm clipping him. I'm gonna roll up. I'm gonna take his ankle in my hands. I'm gonna try and snap it. I'm going to do anything. I can't kill it got i come back. And get the line of scrimmage boomer audibles to quick screen to me like a wide receiver screen to be out there like all right. But i'm gonna get your ass. You got one playoff here. So i come up. And he throws his quick screen and it's the last thing i remember the last thing i remember. Manifield comes out. And i don't know what he hits me with. I remember wrestling. he has a foreign object. I think and i'm out. I am out and i so i'm sitting there and so they finally like wake me up and i get up and and i can remember running off the field and i got to the bench and standing over am on the bench and all of a sudden. I kinda come to whatever i knew. This was the first play the game. And i come to and i look at the scoreboard and it was like thirteen. Twenty whatever and i go. Oh good good good. I didn't miss anything second. So i stand up and i fall down my apparently. I've fallen back over my ankle and my knee. So i'm completely gone. I don't know what quarter is. I can't walk. And i still wanna go get after frank medifast does. He said he was going to hurt me what she did. So yes. i do. Hold a grudge about lucy's number thirty seven number thirty one thirty one forty one. I think that might be it thirty one and for dan predictions good player. But but you never did he. Was it a cheap shot when you saw it or is it just a great tackle bio support objects not totally convinced. He's not that tough guy. I've seen him one hundred times. That's i tell them you're not that guy what you jam in your hand picked up one of the batteries. Throw something in there. You got a good handle on the steelers. Yeah i watched a good bit of that. I i tell you know what impressed me most about. The steelers is that they had that game against tennessee. If you watch that one or not but that was a bloodbath. I mean they were trying to kill each other out there right so much so that we came back on. Pf show they had be picking a game and all so. I said i tell you what i am. Not picking either the steelers or tennessee. The week after this game teams simply cannot put together back to back. Physical games like what that game was. And i was right about tennessee. Tennessee came back and they got beat by cincinnati. Pittsburgh goes into baltimore and it's if anything bloodier than the one that they had in tennessee and just went toe to toe for the entire four quarters. I can't tell you how impressed i am with the pittsburgh steelers putting to those games back to back together to stay undefeated and they're not even close it on their offense. I mean i still think offensively. They're going to get better and if they do with the way they're playing defense right now. They're going to be talking. But also i remember that betters would tell me who ever played seattle the week after they played seattle always bet against that team when they faced the legion boom that they were like that they were going to get beat up. I like that. Richard sherman's on the podcasts. That i do you even do. I wasn't even going to do a podcast. And they said so you said why. Get your richard sherman. As a guest. I is my way of getting out of the podcast. I said you get me. Richard sherman every week to podcasts out there when they got richard sherman. Dona podcast every week. I don't know how but he is truly one of the most interesting guys to talk to weekend and week out. He's not afraid. He talks about whatever he wants to talk about. It's really been fun. I saw that you were doing that. Long pro football focus and in football night in america. you're busy life sucks. Report heads fantastic. It's great. I mean i really you know what if you're gonna watch football day the idea of talking about football. Isn't that bad job right. I mean it's actually. I'm taking a break right now. From my film. Study to come in here and talk. I was thrilled. They did a chance to take a break. And come bobby knight but are you okay with being criticized. Criticize all the time i know but it's still not easy. You can read. Chris you're great and then there's one guy saying whatever that you know one out of ten. We'll stay with you every every single week. I say something that somebody considers to be the dumbest thing they ever. Everywhere i mean do i go do i go looking for it. I don't generally my kids send it to me right. They cannot wait for whatever ice grew up. I got i had one. I can't even say 'cause it's like it's like so foul right that i can't you feel uncomfortable saying it but it's also hilarious because it was totally innocent on my part and by the time that i got home. My kids had made a video of what i said and put it on a loop and just like ran all reagan stop and you have no idea. I mean i have the time. I leave the stadium. I have absolutely no idea what stupid thing i've said this week.

If they're GONNA make a change at quarterback. I have told you since. Jump Street and Jump Street being the minute that trubisky started you know what the bed that the bears are gonna run this thing back. And then he had a three week stretch in which he was terrific he was terrific. Game Against The Dallas. Cowboys was Was a high watermark I think for this bear season and And I think they're absolutely going to run it back. They're not gonNA touch thing which which is amazing which means the entire. NFC North isn't GonNa touch touch a thing because alliance aren't touching the thing and I don't think they're changing anything in Chicago. Even if they're the next two weeks go poorly but you know Matt Negga came from Reeds Staff. There's GonNa be a lot of dipsy Doo on Sunday night football. It's GonNa be a lot of Interesting plays in college worth. They'll be calling that game and he and I had such a blast together on that. NFL One hundred all time team set being to the laughed bill belichick couple times would just share looks with each other like this. Who is this guy on? The end of the set was his guy the guy with the smile the guy with the twinkle in smile although there was until he flipped until he flips. And if you missed that will play that before Chris Collins worth the moment I asked Bella check about being called the Modern Day Lombardi and what does he think about it. Because last week's episode was the episode in which the two coaches every show that. There's there's two coaches revealed or a little bit more that It was Lombardi being revealed and I asked him what it's like to. What does he think of? When he's called the Modern Day Lombardi didn't we once we once wanted to have? Somebody asks the question of ballot check. Yes about the trophy of having the trophy. Renamed after Carr's Michael Irvin has suggested called the Jaguars didn't go that far. Said Hey people call you the Modern Day Lombardi what do you think and his response. After every moment on that set being extroverted he flip. Flip the switch. The Guy can flip the switch case. You're wondering what it's press. Conference demeanor is that a is that something he puts on or not that will i. We'll play that before. We get to conserve talk. NFL One hundred all time team series again this Next episode tomorrow night as wide receivers just great great stuff man. And then the quarterbacks finishes up with a finishes up strong Stan Van Gundy will be here in our number three Big Game Tonight Lakers bucks. Interestingly both teams coming off of a loss to give them the identical twenty four and four records. And it's going to be great. I'm I'm looking forward to that. And then even afterwards rockets clippers the DOJ. Oh tonight that's tonight Yup that's a hell of a TNT double header with friends at TNT and Charles Barkley and shack slated to be on tomorrow's show with Suzy and Marshall Faulk on Friday as I'm making my way to Tampa tonight before we get to Chris Collins Worth let's get to your news update Christopher over there right here on the rich Eisen show with the report of the day's news from the world of sports and entertainment someone who is not a journalist or news man by any definition of the word whatsoever. You're Chris Brockman brought to you by the happy Honda Day sales event. The most wonderful time of the year is back when you can get a great deal on a CRV HR V.. Pilot or passport. Just hurry into your local Honda Honda dealer today. Christopher what do you have okay. Let's start with the news in Jacksonville. Kinda surprising jaguars owner shot con fires. MVP Tom Coughlin yesterday. Sure Day a couple of days after the. NFL Players Association warned players potentially signed with the franchise because of excessive fines and player grievances Shotgun said he initially decided to make the move when the season ended but this letter the NFL PA sent out accelerated his timetable the NFL PA when an arbitrator rejected rejected. Let's put it this way. And he reached the grievance filed by the Union arbitrator confirmed that clubs cannot require rehabilitation or medical appointments at team facilities phillies during the off season and pre training camp period. There's been a fight about all of that. I saw a tweet that Congratulations to Leonard for ninety ninety. Nine thousand dollars in fines were reimbursed him. Yep Wow according to this letter the NFL PA Fodder Grievance Challenging the club's right to discipline a player. Under these circumstances we just mentioned for example during the twenty eighteen. offseason program program again. This is under confluence rain. The Jaguars find a player. Twenty five times for Missing Mandatory Appointments With Club trainer or physician all told. The player was fined over for seven. Hundred Thousand Dollars for missing off season appointments again which it appears that it's because the player didn't appear in Duval County for it. Wow and then this is the one this is the crusher in the NFL PA note in the last two years. More than twenty five percent of the grievances filed by I players in the entire league have been filed against the Jaguars you as players may want to consider this when you have a chance to select your next club if I'm an owner and I see that I'm making that many are honey and and and I you know Coughlin got a big heart when it comes to you know raising funds Them but I guess working for him is no picnic and how did the Jaguars when a damn game if there's a plan I don't know who that player is but if let's just say that players popular in the locker room and the you know that they're closing in on a million dollars worth of fines and they're like like we're finding you were finding your phone and all these fines and you're walking around. How do you want? Why would you wanNA play for anybody? That's right I'm wondering if an and and then they made a nice hall from the Rams for Jalen Ramsey. You're sitting here thinking how the the House Jalen Ramsey not on my team and I'm reading about all this maybe that's some of the stuff. Jalen Ramsey was inching. That's why shod cons like two weeks to go. You're legend here. You're our first all time coach. But you're out. Now the question is is is is marrone on thin ice to write. I don't know I don't know. Is that a desirable. Same marrone does get. The AX is at a desirable location for head coach. Yeah I I think so. I mean because first of all you're not no state tax secondly it's also you know. Obviously the cons did hand the reins over to Coughlin and let something go go that the NFL PA snuffed out to the point. Where Khan said we're done now two weeks before the end of the season because you do need to get out there? Hey players and future free agent. We are a good spot. Yeah man until football you know standpoint. Nick Boles Gardner Menchu. Are Those guys quarterback back to the future. I I don't think the Jaguars will have a problem. Getting a getting somebody. But I mean if you're comparing comparing it to the Dallas cowboys job I mean you can't it's not even the same I understand that Speaking of Thursday so Jerry Jones spoke today come on did he really. We don't have the sound but it was He talked about Dak Prescott so DAK Prescott shoulders a little banged up Not GonNa had a practice much this week. Jerry Jones kind of downplayed it underscored his competence and Prescott. Saying it's going to be fine on Sunday. Not Worried I'm totally convinced. Convinced he'll be in top form and we've got to have him in top form and he will be in top form. I think we're in good shape. All he's gotTa do is just handed off to Zeke. Zeke is Is Eagles Kryptonite. I mean together but jer. Lean and eagles here. I don't know what I'm leaning up they they. They'd be my unlucky lock of the week right. Would they being are they are they. Are they down by that much. Yeah it's like it's going flip field goal. Well he look Dallas should beat them Dallas should beat them dollars. Should go in there and say. We're a much better team were deeper. We've got the more efficient quarterback I mean Dak has numbers that should've given him a pro bowl berth but he didn't and even make it like Zeke did they. They're better. They've got more weapons did they. They should go and spank the eagles. The Eagles Eagles needed to pull one out of there. You know what against the giants and the Redskins who have six wins combine. This should be. This should be hand time one hand tied behind our back. Then you realize it's a rivalry and you need vallance lance but come on now Dallas one and a half point favorites okay. So it's not a hooked on a feeling but what else you got over there. Okay some injuries stuff. You mentioned Chris Godwin. He's ruled out for the bucks Adam schefter saying dalvand Cook Unlikely to play this week against the packers Josh. Jacobsz out for the raiders against the chargers year game will four also limited. Yesterday's practice for the Texan. He makes such a difference for that team really off. The defense sure does like if and still got two touchdowns last week because you put fuller an hopkins on the same side and all of a sudden still gets one on one. I mean that's significant and Julian Edelman. It's pretty banged up for the Patriots. He was women as well. There was some video of him not looking. I'm not worried that great yesterday. It really is okay. He's not moving around too well so we'll see if he goes there Plays video real quick yesterday was signing day early signing period for college football. Yes sir. It's myth legend. He's on the all time One hundred year team His son chose Stanford over over Florida yesterday. And here's Emmett's reaction to that. I'm gonNA take his hat. I'm aware of that. uh-huh had he doesn't have to wear this as you know his daddy went here. That doesn't mean that my son has to go here at the at the end of the day. My son has his own Cerny and his journey. Not My journey and for him to do things that is best for him as what we teach all of our children to five five. What is best for you and go make it happen for yourself? And I'm proud of him for standing up and being the man of the year the man will continue to become and I'm a gator. He's still gated because he's in my family. I love it. There's his wife. Beautiful Wife Pat his son. EJ WHO at least. I didn't put on the Ohio state hat like seemed like everybody did yesterday. that said by the way great comment by Amit about your kid chooses his own path. Michael Irvin once told me that his children had back. There were three things. It's children could not change their name religion in the fact they have to go to Miami. Okay so there's that and every year at the draft last seven eight years I tell my compadres David Shaw. I don't know if my kid's GONNA play football. I don't know if they will. Certainly Zan is not so oh football incline right now but Offer my kid because I'll play Davis Charles. One of the all time greats. I love that guy ever baby. He's got emmett's kid that's amazing mazing and Stanford. What a school congratulations to the smiths? Fantastic eight four. Four zero four riches riches the number to dial when we come back Chris Collins Worth. We'll talk NFL. One hundred all time team chiefs and bears best team that he seen in front of him as you know the NBC's all the Best I he's the best that's next on the rich. Eisen show everybody's got a to do list drop off the dry cleaning pick-up some milk. Here's an idea. Let's add save hundreds of dollars on car insurance to that list and the good thing is you don't have to drop off or pick up anything. All you have to do is go to GEICO DOT COM and in fifteen minutes you could be saving fifteen percents or more on car insurance extra money in your pocket. Of course this may be the most rewarding to do you do today. Welcome back to the rich Eisen in show of the NFL. One hundred all time team series that I've been telling you about for weeks and months episode. Five of six will be Friday night right at eight eastern time evolving the wide receivers last week with the tight ends and offensive lineman. It was my favorite moment of the entire Series to date that's aired and just to set the stage. Tony Gonzalez of tightened group is sitting. There Anthony Munoz the offensive lineman sitting right in front of me and ballot check and Chris Collins Worth Tomorrow's APPS and for the entire series. And we're talking about the next two coaches to be named the all time team list. Paul Brown of the Bengals. But before that Vince Vince Lombardi is named which led me to ask a question of Bella. Check that everybody's been wanting. Ask Him I think on. I took a shot here. The ballot check who's been so a few sieve and passionate disappeared. Take a look. I don't think anybody in my business would ask you this question in normal Question Answer Setting and expect an answer. So I'M GONNA ask it's the sort of revert to my press conference. Answer assist around it. I just thought you know we are going to move onto somebody associated with Cincinnati after the answer. So when you hear you referred to as the Modern Day Lombardi what do you you think of. When you hear that really haven't thought about mantras the flat but because you are aware that people do refer to you as that correct on that really? They've got nine Coven cafeterias. It's a good question and joining us on the show from football night in America Chris Collins for those turn down but I asked you gotta those great that was like a long day or stop Intel. I'll be honest with you. Haven't seen the last two shows. We've been trying to crank out all of a sudden we're doing on Sunday night but the the Lawrence terror stuff. Ah fractured me. I mean I literally. Couldn't I get my back together. After a while. So he was he was only slated it to stay for one segment two and he stayed for several of them including the Joe Greene segment. That Chris I mean and and this was a moment where I thank you and I kind of shared a look with each each other to at least I recall. This is that bellichik asked the first question of Joe Green and and I thought to myself he goes. I gotta ask you something and I I fought my head and my okay. Here comes the question about the steel curtain or about Chuck Knoll and steady asked him about his Co. commercial. And who is this guy. Yeah I think that was the biggest takeaway and I thought it would be. After we finished all shows is this was a fella check. I I think maybe you and I have seen at various times away from press conferences away from you. Know whatever production meetings readings or or whatever there's the human element to this guy And but it came out a lot more than I. I even expected I thought he would be really guarded and the thing. That really interesting for me was surprised him. He really can be a few of heard. One of his Wednesday press conferences where he's talking about the star players for other teams. It's pretty a few sobriety. I mean goes on and on about this is the greatest guy ever But I think he really Surprise with the way the players were talking about him and unwanted honor it was to be in a room with him and what they incredible career. I I think it was in one point. Said what you're talking about me beat. You're the one that holds all stay not and I think it all under that art of it I think Connell off guard and opened them up in a waited. Maybe he wouldn't have. I saw the same thing to Chris in the wagon that the NFL films people who are so terrific at what they do set things up with that monument board where everybody they had their tile placed. When they got you know inducted for the lack of a better phrase or named ballot check was sitting right in front of that and I remember Dion? I think it was either. In a commercial break remained him set it on the Air Diaz like looking at bill as he's looking at the wall and he's looking at bill. I was like what are you doing here. And the fact that bill was there to welcome them in for a lot of guys who got in the pro football hall of fame and thought that they may never have that feeling again of accomplishment and humility humility. Got It again and I watched. We watched that together in person. Chris Yeah and it was interesting. I think it was the WHO is one point something they like okay. This is great but now we WANNA know who's in the starting lineup. Right there again narrow down enough for these competitive guy that always want to be considered the best But it was it was it was really great. I mean in the waiter busting in each other's chops. If you remember Ray Lewis referred to his grandfather told me to watch this player right and it probably came amount about five or six stories As we were doing and that was should I don't know why Dallas away. He opened his comments about other players. He was going on and and at one point Who are sitting next to ray and racist? You WanNa told me that I had watch whoever plays that and and healthy has the greatest deadpan of all time. He looked over at. Let me guess your grandma. Ah None of it back together. I don't know how the added thing. I don't know how it came out exactly but all my goodness we around there were moments when his creator of that show agreed. I mean and Belichick telling the story about Lt being late to a defensive meeting and and he basically told parcells afterwards stages to let you know L. T. was late for five minutes and parcels of meeting with that. That was that was amazing but then there was another moment to Chris Collins here on the rich Eisen show that struck me. You were the one who started the conversation with Ed. Read about a play that you saw a Peyton. Manning got completely fooled because Ed had gone broken a tendency all year long that he had studied the of manning to and prepare to break his own tendency to fool peyton manning and ballot check. Stopped you mid story to finish the play that had nothing nothing to do with the Patriots. He knew what you guys were talking about because he actually I think they played the next week or something like that And I mean it really was one of the hall of fame place over you know. The people knew what they were talking about a little bit. But Ah that was the thing with bill is that you know I feel like you can and I can take these conversations to a certain level But if some point somebody WHO's actually game plan against these players right a whole different level of what that you're willing to do or not do that. Show Chris Collins Worth here on the rich Eisen Short. Let's talk some Sunday night football you you have seen virtually every team. That's in the mix for a super bowl. You've seen New Orleans without breeze. That was fascinating night. With Teddy Bridgewater the also saw One of the few flex games I mean. Everything's been virtually almost the way it was scheduled with San Francisco. Taking care of business you were what witnessed New England lose. Its first game of the year with the Ravens. The best team that you've seen with your own two eyes through fifteen weeks would be which Chris Baltimore And and as much as I wanNA talk about Lamar Jackson and I think that that story I also think that anybody I can tell you about Lamar Jackson right. That this is a team that I mean he does attack your things and John Harbaugh's decision to go there with him. I mean you think about that decision and everybody you know now. Oh yeah well. We had tomorrow night because he was lasted number thirty two right so he basically admitted his career to largest he he effectively said I understand I am going to have to change. We are going to have to change everything we do. Everything we do is going to be different. We play with what Mark Jackson. We've got to commit to a different runner style. We got to get a big bag mark Ingram and we've got to go. You know we gotta find the speed receiver. So when they tried. Try to play man to man coverage against us you know. So they go out they draft Hollywood Brown Drake analyst. So everything's GonNa be different and and that at and he told us this story of the decision and we're finally I mean they're literally going ask the draft room just fading back and forth and he finally says. Let's do it without that simple. And from that moment I I think you know. Certainly at their high in the Post that they were they were saying that you know this is GonNa work out. But I don't think any of them could imagine how quickly this thing has become the phenomenon that it is but I'll say the stretch is good as he's bad and he's been fantastic This is a this is a team of man telling you right now when you talk about physical football you Landau Brown and Marshall Yang Ani's team with Mark Ingram behind And if you're not sure even the Ingram's GonNa get the ball. And maybe here comes Lamar Jackson on the edge. Maybe there goes Hollywood Brown but the thing that impresses Kazmi more than anything else when it's time to go toe to toe and pretty we're getting air right. We're almost in playoff fees and bad weather all kinds of stuff. When it's time to go toe? The toll team physically will match up with anybody. Well then the question is who has the best chance to beat them or prevent them from getting to the Super Bowl and I kind of go back forth on this Chris Collins Worth here on the rich Eisen show. Is it a team. That's already seen him before. So you can. You can draw upon experience. It's not a first time experience. You know how fast last Lamar Jackson as you do. Know what this offense looks like and you don't have to simulated somebody who clearly isn't the real McCoy in some sort of scout team or is it somebody that does have the physical firepower offensive firepower and defensive strength to beat them in a first time. Shot what do you think I know who you're talking about. You're talking about and I. I agree with you but maybe not the team that you think I think I obviously the Patriots or the team that comes comes to mind I fight so they patriots did not play that well defensively that night and the strength of the Patriots is in their secondary That's what they do. Best their coverage average skills or are clearly what they do best and we know valid Second time around The thing I hear complaints about all the time is no matter. Her House smarter coach. You are you can't hit ready for for these guys and we've you see this campus. There's too many things that are different. I mean I can remember watching watching my son play at Notre Dame and they go place navy. Was it for blocks well. They're only doing it once a year. You know I mean. And and meanwhile he's been practicing this thing for the last fifty years And being very good the team that I'm asked me and surprised me the most honestly with San Francisco. Now if you remember the day they went out there and you're thinking okay. We know Lamar. We know we know the ravens can run the ball and the weather conditions on it was raining The the forty niners. We're just coming off a game. Had to travel across the country had to play at one o'clock which is ten am. I'm for a West Coast team and usually those teams. Don't play well in that situation and played on down to the wire and played in my physical game defensive Mastella Pretty darn well against Lamar and the offense. I came out of the first one I really came out of a game. Believing in the forty niners and of of course what they did against the Orleans and then the other thing that always comes up for me is just GonNa say it right. They lost Atlanta that. How many times do we see team team played their best game of the year? which was in New Orleans Flash for San Francisco and turn around and can't get close to that effort the next week? 'cause you spent a whole week the restaurants and bars the greatest thing because of the same as the matter back though I think San Francisco thing really only watch. Yeah they also didn't have sixty -fensive starters. Because Man I mean talk about attrition to go from Baltimore to New Orleans I mean. That is no joke Chris Collins. We're here on the rich Eisen. Show two more questions for so the team that you think maybe not being the top two seeds radar screen. Nobody's talking about Green Bay even. They are top to see Kansas City has improved defensively throughout the last few weeks. They add tea sisal. Now Gimme a team that you can make a run here and when it all Kristan. Kansas City they I just got finished watching their tape. Obviously and Homes look like MVP. Mahomes I it was. It was really one of the best games I've seen all year from player They play in the snow and the weather and all that stuff just added to do it but he's starting to he made one throw in that game that That I I played it back twenty five times so he was living. Nothing lasts looking looking And nobody was there. And all of a sudden he started his throwing motion as he was turning his the body back to the right And is tied in on an I.. Kelsey but the other titan eighty one I'll think of his second And if he comes is standing there like over on the sideline standing on the sideline And and I'm telling you throwing motions hadn't started. And he was turning in that direction there was no way he could've seen him. There was no way he could have known. He was wide open on the sidelines and yet somehow only motion just started all it was. I can't wait to talk to him and say how did how did that happen. Do explain playing the me. I'm going to show playing for Lotion. And when he starts making those kinds of play and he starts running away that he is and he starts sliding like he's a real baseball player instead of just trying to survive and not originally again. I just see some of that. Magic in defensively The thing that people probably won't know how is that is put in a little check in about every defense known to man and they play they basically change coverage it seemed being black on every single. Snap of the ball So while that may not look good early in the season late in the year that sort of versatility and ability to change. Midstream extreme is gonNA pay dividends Blake. Bell I believe is who you're referring to its chiefs and bears on Sunday night football and then I'm I'm assuming coming you're making arrangements for Seattle right. You guys are planning on game. Two fifty six being San Francisco at Seattle for the last. I mean that's the way it looks. Ah We're over for me exactly now last one for you Chris. I will say this and I don't mean to embarrass you but Al loves you man And It's been such a pleasure of mine since moving to Los Angeles to get to know Al Michaels and and so. When I told him I was doing the show the NFL one hundred all time team show with you? He's just like wait. T- wait till you get next to him and you were dynamite on this. Show Chris. You're amazing and I I knew you had the ability to converse and talk In a studio setting but the thing that really hit me and I and I think there's a lot of folks who obviously have no news broadcaster for as long as you have for successfully as long as you have. You had an amazing experience playing against a lot of these guys who were named the All time team and Paul Brown as well. Do you have Abbott Good Story. You just want to leave everyone with about one of the people who've been announced. I mean Mel Blunt. Somebody that you played against that that Left you impressed or literally physically if not Emotionally an impression upon you Chris Impression Russia on me but probably Jack Lambert after I off ball one time over in the middle of my rookie year and I came walking. I'm sitting there and Jack sort of gave me the need to the chest and regret like facemask asking gaming wiler Collins. Have you ever come again and like all right so I kind of staggered my Beaton. Born back on Standing Muneer this is over there and and I got this big smile on my face and and they actually said. Thank you smile about Man Jack. Lambert almost killed you over there that I know but he knew my name every new. Yeah I mean it was a thrill for me. We got a chance to To sit amongst greatness You you were your usual fantastic yourself. Rich they just pass casual felt neat. It was really cool. It was a great great feeling to at all I agree it just. Everyone was left buzzing talking about how special The shoot was and how obviously NFL films would have six months. Munson Edit Bay to make it work we all knew how great it was and again that Lambert story that I think wasn't lambert the one that started talking about how Lambert got his first shot oughta college because the guy in front of him on the depth chart left to be a security for the rolling stones I mean again embellishing. We're like what are you talking like giving us Rolling Stones Football Trivia. That was amazing. Thing that I came away with was man when he likes to be one of the Jimmy. Johnson's in the world is got to go on his boat after the season when he was really just had a beer and fan and totally out of here just sitting in the S. and around and telling football stories with and it'd be great because the other thing that I came on round away from That whole thing was I can't really old man I I literally either grew up watching as a kid playing against broadcasting. assing everybody on that door you know other than the ones gonNA check back in black and I really had a first hand correct election everybody on that team and that was struck me more than anything else. WHO's man you're old? Yeah you know what but I I took it is just you being a perfect analyst to sit next ballot check in for me To enjoy sitting next to you for that it was awesome And and I appreciate this call to have a great call with Al Sunday night Chicago and beyond will be chatting down the Road Chris Collins Worth. PF Don't forget about Everything that he does with pro football focus he owns it and he brings it every single Sunday night on NBC. Chris Collins Worth. You're on the rich Eisen. Show I I was just awesome. I gotTa Talk to them literally another twenty minutes and just to bring it full circle the exchange I had with Bela check about the modern day. Lombardi and that we if you will started the conversation with Chris for the next coach we did move onto. Cincinnati was Paul Brown and Collins. Were starts telling stories about when he was in the Cold Tub and Paul Brown would walk into the training room. Now that's right played bengals. Yeah and then in me defensive back show. Mel Blunt makes the team dion goes now. That's a man and Collins was like tell me about it. He lined up against Mel Blunt. I mean Collingsworth was remarkable in terms of being a personal personal a having a personal experience against some of these players that I forgot about. That's right Joe. Montana's named May or may not come up in the back show. That's the guy who he played a couple of super bowl against. Yeah you know I mean it real. He was him and Bella. Check the perfect people made my job so much easier and just to be a fly in the wall. It's great so much fun. Your phone calls at eight four four two zero four rich number to dial before Stan van Gundy joins us to set up shop on the big game of the night which is Lakers bucks. We'll check on our poll question. More eight four four two zero four rich number to dial phone calls when we come back.

Charles Barkley and Shaquille O'Neal both scheduled to appear on Friday's edition of the rich Eisen. Show right on as my wife continues to show me up. That's fine I know that sounds bounds. that sounds negative. It's really positive. The glass half full way. I'm looking at it. Wow what does that sound bad. I'll let you answer booed. I remember one of the first time susie sat in. It was the time the peyton manning said he could do it I do it was I think it was Peyton and then Al Michaels Michel Kilo. Newell I'm hours rain. The beginning outside with Michael in Wisconsin. Let's take your phone call here on the rich Eisen show. What's up Michael? They're rich Just a quick question for you talking about all. This Bucks Lakers Just curious what you think about this year and what your thought is on you know. This could be a possible finals match up. Well possible finals. Matchups are they're dangerous does talk about them in the middle of December right because anything can happen I I if I let's put it this way. I'M GONNA ask this if Stan van Gundy coming up at the top of the next hour if I had to give you a choice Michael and I know I know you're bias. Because you're calling in from Wisconsin. which do you think has the best? If I said one of these two will make it. Which one would you choose as the as the as the best chance you know? It's hard as is for me to say I'd probably say the Lakers because of the match up with Anthony Davidson Lebron. You Know I. It's tough to match up against those two guys in general and then you've got some guys on the side you know Cruz and But to be honest I hope the buck. But I'm probably GONNA have to go with the Lakers. You know what and I and I go the other way and I'm not just saying that because you're calling him for Wisconsin Yeah mm-hmm and thanks for the call Michael. I'd go the other way because the West is going to be much more of a crucible to get through the East I would think correct when you think I think so although my the zero slash although on recent years although my theory is I was thrown out there all summer long. Hey who wants to be the one that face the seven eight seed Golden State Warriors. That ain't happening okay but when push does come to shove okay and the Lakers are in a second round match with hardening West broken and PJ Tucker and those guys. Chris and they get through them and push comes to shove and Kawhi Leonard and Paul George Doc Rivers Right now at twenty four and four. We're watching them do what they're doing right. I don't know I I'm I would would choose the bucks if if I do I'll ask you that question. One of the two teams tonight makes it. Which one do you choose Milwaukee Right? Yeah that's the way. Are we go where the road is tougher for the between Houston and the clippers. I mean it's tough when push comes to shove not even counting Denver. Who's WHO's GonNa be there at? The has the ability to show up like the rockets or or the clippers in the east with the talent and Experience Philadelphia and Boston. The two and I think they're kind of a shadow of of the rockets and and the clippers. They're not as good right. Who's going to take on Luca and KRISTAPS PORZINGIS team? You'RE GONNA WANNA point if there's seven eight seven eight. You don't WanNa play. That's your first round and the rockets your second round your third round. scuppers Yeah Lakers. You're going to be so beat up by the time like the Fox would have to face now. Capital one is reimagined banking by offering savings and checking accounts but no freezer minimums minimums one of the nation's best savings rates capital one. What's in your wallet? The poll question at the end of our number two Christopher is what would we have most unfathomable event of the NFL all seasons. So far Andrew Luck retire. DONALD GETS MONO anything Antonio Brown myles Garrett crazy helmet swing Sam darnold at the bottom rich so good for you guys five percent mouths Garrett twenty nine percent anything. Ab Thirty Percent Andrew Luck retiring thirty seven percent. You know what you could say what's the most unfathomable Event of the NFL. Season is Lamar Jackson. Setting the Ravens. Record for most touchdown passes in season and setting the record. For most touchdown passes by UH heisman trophy winner and setting the record for the most touchdowns accounted for by heisman trophy winner. Who would have saw that coming? Oh wait a minute. Our number KNBR three standing here and I'm going to review all of my heartache forth downstream my four downs of the twenty nine thousand nine season coming up during the season of giving.

You're rich is said. Okay, everybody. Welcome this edition of the Rich Eisen, show live on the air from. Los Angeles California where if there was no NBA bobble the clippers and Lakers would be just chilling out waiting for results to come in to find out who they're playing. In the second round of the NBA playoffs which are getting more and more intense in that bubble and we're thrilled that the NBA is in fact back we're keeping an eye on everything that's going on in the real world that might actually pierce the sports world bubble. We've got a lot of football on our minds for many reasons first of all this, just in, I'm about to start my seventeenth years the host of NFL network coming up. Eighteenth, season seventeenth year coming up and actually. Unbelievable. And Chris Collins. Worth. My compadres from the NFL one hundred, all time team Emmy Award winning program is going to be joining me here on this show with not one but two running backs, of note. Aaron, Jones of the Green Bay packers is going to be calling in in about fifteen minutes time and then Melvin Gordon pride of Kenosha Wisconsin. In the news as we all know. Melvin will be dialing in firm Denver where that's his new address after holding out at this point last year on the Los Angeles chargers and that holdout did not go very well Alvin Kamara appearing to be his fourth day of some sort of hold out that he apologized for an advance dropping some bread crumbs on twitter last week saying sorry in advance. That's playing out, and then in the third hour, we'll have a lot of fun the writer and Director David Zucker of airplanes celebrating the fortieth anniversary. Of that for me seminal. Comedy Comic Film. He'll be joining us on this show and surely you cannot miss that segment. While done. Thank you very much. Just WanNa low Chris Brockman. Good luck world counting on you show today. Want to let you know good luck what's happened like to talk Jabbar. Well, I mean if you are in the cockpit, I think I'm kind of the pilot of the show on the Peter Graves and Kareem abdul-jabbar, and I can't wait to ask David drucker about that. That's one of my favorite lines when the kid goes up to the cockpit and says, aren't you Kareem and you know? His He says his dad had a problem with Koreans game and he grabs the kid by the. Shirt and says, you tell Your Dad Drag Walton in Lemonier, up in Up and down the corridor. Oh my gosh. At any rate I can't wait to chat with David Zucker and also thank him for all the laughs at he's giving me literally for four decades. So. That's how we're rolling on this show. Hey. In. Terms of. NBA Headlines. Didn't see this one coming. Didn't think many people. Coming I think Chris Paul might have seen a common but when. richeisenshow friend of the program. Daryl. Morey. Traded Away Chris Paul and his monster contract that a lot of people thought would be an albatross around. The salary structure of any team that has Chris Paul at his advancing age. What he thirty five years old now I believe. That That this player with a hall of fame resume who's yet to ever appear in a conference finals thirty fifth any of the teams on which he played. making all the money in the world that he makes. Trading that contract that player away. To Oklahoma City and bringing Russell Westbrook. In return to hook up with harden. In the backward. Right, like the day the Oklahoma City. Yes kids heart used to be a sixth man, right. Christopher. He was six man of the year was. And It was as if he was on the bench last night the very end of the game between Oklahoma City and and Houston who'd have thought. That the headline in the NBA coming off of this series certainly when it was oh to. For the thunder in the series rockets took the first two games that we would be heading to a seventh game because Chris Paul. Takes the game over after well, I mean this you might have heard of before he lost his cool. They lost his cool. After an offensive foul was called on his teammate Dennis Schroder later on late in the game. and. When Paul went off to tie the game at Ninety Eight, I thought to myself boy there's a point that. He in Oklahoma, city would like to have back I bet you this is going to be a game where that that that technical he picked up instead of just Swallowing his anger and being so upset at the call against his teammate. that he would just walk away let maybe the replay process handle it. Long Story Short. Chris Paul is dropping threes in and stepping back on Covington, who's by the way had a great series I love watching him play for Houston. He's really worked out. Well, I was a nice acquisition by Daryl Maury. As they have committed to the. Become what the first six six and under the League team pretty much and Paul was amazing and then. I text you like. Oh. Where's hard? I'm watching where I am. You're watching where you are. We're all watching it and Westbrook, WHO's fresh back. From an injury. He played in game five way off, and then here he is taking the game over or attempting to take the game in his hands and James Harden can get to the line at will at Will James? Harden can get to the line at will. Watching the game with my nine year old coup. and. Harden when they were down by six in the fourth quarter gets to the line and I tell. Coop. These two free throws her in. This is what he does. He gets to the line and he's makes his free throws and I wanted to use this as a teachable moment. Make your free throws because this is what James Harden does. He gets to the free throw line always will whatever he wants. He will get to the free throw line and he will these two free throw shots as he perfect. No. But damn near every single one of them goes in he says, what if one of the Mrs will you give me a dollar? I said, yes I. Will Give you a dollar. Two. Free throws later dad was right. Did you make him give you know he's not but I'm. Saying all this. To make two points first of all. I am in my third straight month of being best ad ever to. Thank you to. Heart and can get to the line when every damn well pleases and the Games tied one hundred. Or ICAN Euro step back for three even take a step back not get caught for it and drop the three in that was a filthy shot and it's clear Russell Westbrook is not up to Russell Westbrook speed here. When Russ pulled up from a from a key topic a and and missed everything. which by the way didn't cause immediate damage because hard made a remarkable save to throw the ball off a gallon Ari to keep the ball. In. Houston's favor. But then coming back down and just being out of control. Driving Elaine, throwing it away. Did. You ever see. Do you ever see and I know this is wrong to say I'll say it anyway because this is what I texted. You ever see the movie the Manchurian candidate yes. Okay. Manchurian. Candidate for those who may not know a brilliant film that Frank Sinatra starting in the sixties. Time Angela Lansbury, who many of you might know from me road or as PAT summerall would call it murder. She wrote nineteen sixty, two, correct sixty to sixty four. Now he's just said, six, sixty, nine, hundred, sixty, two. And It involved. Somebody. Here's line a former prisoner of war as brainwashed as an unwitting assassin vern international communist conspiracy nobody knew that this guy was playing for the other team essentially. I texted you is westbrook still playing for Oklahoma City. That's the way it looked. A He's. Russell Westbrook going to the hall of fame going often. Yeah probably. Okay. This will not be the moment that they talk about. It was not good. It's the season's not, but I bring this altogether to point out who thought what Paul was traded for Westbrook that we would a game obviously nobody thinking about in a bubble it would it be happening? He would happen on the last night of August twenty twenty and a bubble and owner museum park and resort. But just. Whatever game six forces a game seven Chris Paul carries the day Russell Westbrook. Dreadful. Goat yeah dreadful. Gibbs coven under any circumstance is amazing but. The heightened of the bubble and the playoffs that we've got going on, it is going to be remarkable and we get to in a row we get one tonight and tomorrow and tonight it's on. ABC. Anyway. It's on ABC and this is a big night for the NBA. This is GonNa be on network television and it's not Lebron versus fill in the blank and it is not you know Kawhi versus fill in the blank it's Jamal Mary Donovan Mitchell and this is a big spotlight on national television network television for two young. Who have just been balling and filling it up, and if anybody's out there, who is in deep into the NBA. Who's like you know what? I WanNa Watch live sports tonight and flips on ABC and sees. Jamal Mari they might be like, wow, I'm all in on this kid. And, Donovan Mitchell, both of them will one of them come up with a third fifty point game in the series could both of them do it? So that would be amazing. And prior to that on ESPN Celtics try to take a two old on the raptors. goodstuff man's go. Great. Great Ball night. Excited excited and on on NBC. S? N.. There are to hockey games. This evening could be close out. Games. BRUINS got closed out yesterday indeed. And I saw some local person go to harass on twitter and I thought that was A. Beyond the Pale islanders trying to close out the flyers and veggies trying to close out the connects. That is a double dip on NBC said. Can I So pucks in the bubble and I think NHL sent out a release that yet another covert free round of testing. So the bubble in the NHL is holding the bubble in the NBA is holding as we know. Major League baseball considering bubbling up for the play offs. And You know what's bubbling up it's being a major league baseball. The richeisenshow bump. We always take credit for good stuff and. Even, when we shouldn't, we shouldn't. Squad goals. Thank you making. And we sloth stuff that we. Could take ownership up but if it's negative, we we forget it. We forget it.

All those who are experts at that sort of thing. They, get Trevor Rosenthal. Okay Who We know has got some serious closer ability. So that's a starter that is closer. Man Mitch, Moreland you take the floor on what he can do Christopher when he can for health side. Well, let me tell you like the Big Al of of Major League Baseball. All he does hit Dinger's in big spots especially in the postseason asked dodger fans. It's what he does. Man He's. I hated giving him up. He's a nice back coming off the bench. And by the way, he's already got hosmer yeah. Got, you got krona worth Ba from the University of Michigan Guys Crushing Yep. He's doing well.

We have a three year we've been three or Max. So McCaffrey was back in. So dalvand Cook so those guys went I. Okay. So next year, a Aaron Jones will be available. Your will probably be the first pick. Twenty. Five years. Old Man. He is going to be joining us in about thirty seconds time here for the two seat Green Bay. Packers would have been the one seed if. Game fifty-six. I think Jacob Hollister of the Seattle seahawks tight end. had. The ball. Two. Inches closer right. Who is upright as opposed to being a quarter of an inch in front it would have been a quarter of an inch beyond seahawks when that game niners of the five seed. Sea Hawks of the three seed and packers at him in the one seed. Chris Collins. Worth. Who is the lead analyst for the? National Football League world on the NBC will be joining us the top of hour number two Melvin Gordon will be joining us in our number two as well. They Denver Bronco now running back from Kenosha Wisconsin. So that'll be an interesting conversation. With him the phone lines four, four, two, zero, four, rich number dial here on this show there's a later on in this hour. Jerry Jones had an interesting. Comment today. And Mike I think you've got a new drop. A new era good. That'll be that'll be. It's always a celebration here on the rich Eisen show when that happens. We'll do that not the new. How appreciate that the proud of Youtube football now running the football for the Green Bay packers as the lead back he has that right to be called that. and. The s there's another hour and on the on the Green Bay packers who is of crucial importance be running back at the Green Bay packers Aaron Jones back on the show her. How you doing. Thank you for having me again always Aaron. Now Aaron This is a somewhat of a new audience potentially here on this show because we're we're on NBC and now, and now we're on the new streamer peacock. So let's let's reset if you will for our new audience which which show of national radio and television had you on studio and no One else did, which is that what show would what will be the name of that show? Would he be called the rich Eisen show Aaron the rich Eisen show who we did we did the forty outside this. We did he was watching people do the forty we were watching people do the forty I think you made the race friend I think he would make. I'll be honest with you because I certainly wasn't, I'll tell you that. You were here you were here and so so which show is pretty much onto you as a force in the national football league before any other show. Coast to coast. Rich Eisen show. Day One before I was even really getting any love from anybody else you've been rocking with. Me Saw really appreciate that I'm right back at you Aaron Jones what is your mindset going into twenty twenty walk through your list of goals Sir. please. Just to be be more explosive of be more productive and bring the title back titletown. Think that's our whole teams. Go We fell. Just, Short last year in the NFC championship and we felt like we were close. We got ugly taste in our mouths. So we just want to get back there and bring the title back home. And bringing that title back home. What about your goals? Personally though I mean you're a team player there is no I in Aaron Jones I understand that. But what what? What is your personal? Statistical potential goals what have you written down for yourself? Have you written anything? I haven't written anything down yet but I WANNA have a better year than I did last year and like I said be more productive finish off those five five, six, seven year run and turn those into big runs and just be a consistent home run hitter from team and your conversations with Aaron Rodgers. What are they about when you have? they're they're about. how we can improve What he wants to do on certain plays or starting around little screen. If it's a low screen paths, did I never did navigate it right or and then just like communication from the? and. What they're doing on certain plays and then just life outside of football as well. He's a great great leader true leader and he cares about everybody on his team and what are you better at now than you were at maybe when you're here personally As a rising star in this league, trying to make your mark what do you better at? A. Been Receiver for like, I've improved on that tremendously since I've been there and causal floors allowed me to showcase bed going to continue to work on that. It's interesting that you would say that you're a better receiver. I think packers fans just jumped off their couch over there looking saying that's good to know since that was kind of not hit in the draft in two, thousand, twenty Aaron Where were you draft night and draft weekend? Was In all Paso? Texas. Okay. Parents all right. You aren't the only airing to have somebody drafted at the position during the draft is that correct Aaron Jones? Correct. Okay. What did you think of the drafting? Of Aj? Dylan I, understand you share the same room as a meeting room is him but what did that say to you? I mean little shocking but. Time, I know the NFL is a business and they're bringing in is To compete every day so. At the end of it I know is business. So I mean he didn't choose where he was going writes the packers chose him. So I can't hold nothing against him I'm just here to help him grow as a player and help us football team. Did it Piss you off there? Let's be honest. Let's talk to the Piss you off just even I liked bit. On No it didn't. It didn't pissed me off I was just. kind of caught by surprise but then again I've been. Told for so long as business and you see a year after year. Sure he's. then. Let me put it. This way has it lit a fire under you. The light even identifier. Yes. All right. You could. You could definitely say that. Okay. Now, matlock floor at this point last year was a rookie coach and you're just learning system that. That he was bringing in. What at what level of Comfort Comfort to you have now in this system and how will that be manifesting itself on the field for you and your teammates now that you've got a year in with him I. Think we also a lot more comfortable. We we know the INS and outs. Now before we last year, we were just we learning it. And running it as we go we really didn't understand the true details and what the power that play was were running in. But now this year we've had this whole off season Luckily, we has zoom Our coaches did a good job on there and when we got back into the facility and just kind of break down the playbook taking a deep. Dive into it and understanding why we're doing what we're doing on plays what we're trying to accomplish and I. Think I think you'll see a lot of guys playing a lot faster playing more comfortable. You're not. You're not going out there having to think about what you're doing when the plays call, you hear it and you can just go and go and play react. I mean playing react. It sounds like you know you're not the only Aaron who does loose excels and playing and reacting I mean this this opportunity with you and Rogers and Davante Adams and I know how much has been made in even I earlier made reference to the to the Receiving Corps Receiving core think of when when they hear somebody like me or anybody else talk about the lack of receivers and name receivers for your team, they must hear that and. they just kinda smile me and I think I think they're kind kinda like the position and we're people were kind of down and thinking that there's nobody else in that room. But we have some legit guys in envious and Lazard J. Kumo. We have guys who can go out there and can play some real ball and I think those guys did a good job last year and May pop on when you cut on the tape they pop out a bit and making making place for us I'm excited they. Me Too I think they have another year in this offense and they can they. They've gotten a chance to grow where they've had all season. They've gotten a chance to grow I I'm excited for you. You are a match up nightmare for many teams. Aaron I saw the first minute you took the field and you got a quarterback who knows exactly where to put you in that position and he's a team that last year nobody gave credit for almost being the one seed I kind of feel like you're. People aren't paying attention to you again, Erin, would you agree with that assessment? definitely think think that or if not that then they're think we're gonNA take a step back but I mean our guys here hungry. We know how close we were and we want we want that Super Ball. Okay. Who is your guy growing up? I might have asked you that before but I forgot was the guy that you related growing up I liked I like emmitt Smith Jamaal Charles Chris Johnson Marshall Faulk party Harbin. guys like that. Have you ever spoken any of them. Have you ever chatted with any anyway I did get a chance to meet a MS Minta. This was last off season not this past one like the one. Before that you know just getting a chance to talk to him something special almost crowd I call my mom right away. You'll never guess I'll talk to and I even I even got a pitcher with him as well him and Barry Sanders and Jim Brown got a picture with all three of those guys put on. I was just in shock because for so long Emmett Smith with my favorite running back growing up in. to finally get a chance to meet him and talk to them, and then see how down to earth and cool and. Watched like he washed my games he could tell me about myself. I think I think that was amazing. Aaron I you know out of all anyone else I can. I can hook you up with? Marshall easily would that be some? I've actually I actually talked to Marshall to. I'm supposed to be coming on his his drug free podcast pretty soon but I I got the chance to talk to him say last week or the week before that and Do you could tell he? He cares about the current players and Really the running backs as a whole just he he's open book knowledge and he he accept the phone call. He just he just wants to give share his knowledge with you to make you a better player makes total sense I. Really. I really appreciate Marshall for that as well. He is without a doubt and Chris Brockman across the row from me, you were his segment producer on NFL game morning for two years correct correct. Correct We'll both attest smartest guy maybe one of the smartest guys we've ever met, but in terms of football and in terms of common sense just in terms of sense. Maybe. The greatest combination of brains talent that's ever put on. I thought I knew a lot about football. Then I got to work with Marshall I know so. Maybe he's downloaded to you the fact that you at your position if you know. The route that everybody's running on the field and know what the quarterback is thinking pre and post snap that would help you as a running back. That's exactly what Marshall did. Oh definitely and I mean he he talked to me a little bit about that and saw taken an even deeper dive into the playbook and just learning with everybody on the door, and like you said, not just my position or a route. That's absolutely right. All Right Aaron Jones you go crush it. You go crush it. I'll be looking I'll be rooting as always big time and I appreciate you taking the time. Yes our thank you and thank you for always Rocco with me. Now will always, and by the way I don't know if you're wherever you know since you've been here. I've gotten faster at the forty. So you inspired me as well. Yes. Sir Let's Ki Ki working on the exactly. You know. I'm I'm five nine. What was I this year? Five, nine, eight. Six six and I'm just like fine wine and I think part of it is just knowing you and being inspired by you being here for my forty yard dash couple years ago on this campus. Yes, I can be there for the one this year coming up. Excellent. Well, you take care of yourself. Aaron stay healthy stay safe. Hope this season goes as well as you'd like. Yes to thank you and thank you for having me back. It's you're right back at you. That's Aaron Jones the Green Bay packers. Here on the rich Eisen. Show. Will Faulk? Would sit there and you'd watch a game with them and you you. I shouldn't say this that you would. You would you. He's still the same. and. He will sit there and go. This is going to be an interception. Like what he goes interception. and. He would happen. Watch US play right here. It's going to pop. You just knew by looking at the four major right and he just knew about formations and tendencies and the way it was going to play out. Black. Raymond. We drop the number of toothpicks on the floor needs say that sixty two than Marshall would just know exactly. He'd see it completely different. And And there was another player who I won't mention. But people who are fans of the show would know. currently wide in the League has been for a while when he first started. He was dynamic in a in a an offense they switched coaches new coach comes in he had no idea what the Y and z were doing only the ex-. That's it. And was called out on it and denied it, but it's the it was the truth. He's still in the League, which is quite something about because we were podcast. What like eight years ago nine years ago. So. It helps when you're running back to know okay. If I do this and I know Z's here in an otherwise here in the Ex's here, I can settle here. And I can. Also. Have this matchup problem there. And I know the quarterback's thinking about the Xm wait I could see what the defense is doing. So I know. I'm the hot I know I'm. Going to be the second look on on the I look I'M A. Problem. Pre, snap. I think Aaron Jones asked that. I think he's that good is a good player I know he's really good. At Minnesota Detroit at New Orleans versus Atlanta by. A first four also the next three or four aren't that on an easy either after the bye week obeys man Tampa Houston Minnesota San Francisco. I mean could go south for Green Bay you know in a hurry or they could prove their one of the best. Exactly. Beauty the national football league. And I'll just bring up one more time in the same way, and this is what's going to be really weird. It's not gonNA and and we hear this from the front office at the NFL. A Lot. This year is going to look different it's going to be different. It's GonNa feel different. Week one is going to be really weird. Though preseason. And and then right now, there's only eight teams that have said that we're going to have. They're going to have fans. And That's it, and it's a conversation right now that that's not fair. That's a geographic advantage. BECAUSE THEY WILL BE A. Place where they can get loud. Tampa is one of the places that say they will have fans. I don't know how it's GonNa work out, I mean they're going to have to they're going to have to. Separate them throughout the entire stadium it's going to have to be. From what I'm what I'm hearing only twenty percent capacity and you spread them all out. But It's GONNA be Weird. It's going to be crazy but in the same way that I mentioned that the NBA bubble has shown. That, there's no homecourt advantage. You know you'd sit here and say Oklahoma, city's got no shot game. So I bought a tough place to play in Houston for game seven. It's a total agnostic scene. And they will pump in noises to make it seem like it's a Houston Rockets. Floor when they score or something, but it's not the same math and football. Going into an empty lambeau. Week one Tampa goes into an empty superdome century way coming. Yeah new new, England week to empty Seattle of it. I know you're. Just you know it's different environment man that's going to be really different. A. Four four two, four rich number to dial Jerry Jones the latest gem in his local radio show. Latest Gem from Jerry. And we'll keep an eye on everything else going on in the world of sports today as Chris Collins Worth and Melvin Gordon also still join us here on our quad cast. Do you own or rent your home? Sure you do and I bet it can be hard work. You know what'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 Geiko DOT COM G. I. C. O. DOT COM. Back here on the rich Eisen show Chris Collins worth going to join us. I cannot wait. It's here I kind of have. You know held back a little bit because I just didn't know of covid nineteen would be so prevalent that there's no shot. Of the NFL, it's APP and the NFL has created thirty two bubble worlds in every single facility and have really. Made it as airtight as possible. And it looks like we're gonNA. Make It. To next Thursday and And start playing some football. And you've got. You've got it work. It's been pretty impressive actually, and well I mean, and here's the thing you know as NBC audiences about to rejoin us here as the well as the rest of our radio audience eight, four, four, two, zero, four, rich call us out there streaming on peacock and beyond. We're back here on the rest of our quad cast. Now here, I was just talking to the peacock audience about how I was. Holding back a little bit on. My excitement level for. The NFL season because I just didn't want to be excited and then have covid nineteen, pull the robot rug out and you know who knows what's going to happen. But so far we're entering the season with the NFL creating thirty two bobble world's at every facility. And every stadium. And we have yet to have. One team from one bubble play another team for another bubble and hopefully both of them are so clean that when they're on top of each other in the vectors cross in a significant way we separate and. Go back to the bubbles and everything is fine. That's the issue. We spoke to Greg Olsen yesterday the issue also being travel. Nobody's travelled yet nobody's had to get on a plane on mass or two planes. If that's what the NFL saying that you need to social distance enough within your own world two planes go to the same spot go to the same hotel. Nobody picks it up from anybody nobody goes out. Play a game. Go home. And when you go home, no vectors are brought in from schools or families or friends. Everybody's smart. Nobody goes out everybody stays home everybody goes back to work or tested or clean. Let's do it again. Seventeen. Straight Times. Who Was it who came on Chris I forget who it was over the last week. Could have been was it kittle I forget? Mentioned the by weeks. The by weeks are going to be potentially dicey like when you send everyone home. Where people are not at the facility every day. Getting. Tested every day. It's by week. What happens then? Well, everybody take care of their business. You take a look at what Oklahoma football did. Lincoln Riley. Everyone on campus him home. They came back in the cove was far worse. And I was holding back on it. I was definitely holding back on fantasy. You notice we haven't spoken fantasy very much until last Friday. Because to me the the What indicates a lack of awareness more than a talk about who might get more catches might do this when covert might wipe the whole damn thing out. But now beginning, you know now that I've got a couple of draft positions. Yeah. I'm beginning to get those juices flowing and I'm I'm excited about it although it's him. I'm excited about it. And there's a lot of rumors flying now about big ten football tons of rumors flying right now they're gonNA. They're either coming back today or they're coming back. Next month or they're coming back and Thanksgiving or they're just going to punt it. Yeah Albert Albert giving out the is. Let me see. Albert. Every the Ohio State Fan Albert Brady referring to. Every the Ohio State Fan I know. Is Rip Blank over the big ten decision. I mean just. And it's Kinda crazy I have been exposed to the the Ohio State Buckeye football world. Now since one, thousand, nine, hundred, six grew up in New York City had no idea about the intensity of big ten football none. I mean if you grew up in New York, city, you were either fan and this is in the eighties you're either a fan of Penn state right which at the time. Reno. Or if you remember it was independent Penn state was independent Syracuse might. Positive Eighty certainly wasn't rutgers and then of course like Mike del Tufo. Notre. Dame fans. All K all over the place. Because they were fraudulent. Like you. Wow. But I was exposed to it nine hundred, eighty six the first time when a brash senior quarterback guaranteed victory and beat. The Ohio state after Bo Sham Bachelor went crazy about it. Now be Jim Harbaugh. And? I was exposed and never one SORTA taught me about the ten year war between Woody Hayes and BEAUCHAMP Boeckler and. I was into it and I I know how much it means to everyone in the big ten country about football. But not until it was removed by the school presidents I. Guess by a vote of eleven to three. Did you see that it wasn't two teams that voted AU Lait was three and the big ten made that all public because the Nebraska players I'm and their parents have sued the big ten over this, right? So. I. Wonder if the third school the we we know Nebraska said, let's play. Yes. They. Still haven't said with the other two. Are It sure sounds like the Ohio state was one of them and certainly might be Michigan to. Me I don't I. Don't Jim's been pretty out there. I don't think it's not Jim. It's the school president again that's why people are jumping on Kevin War in the big ten commissioner. Hard. In a way that is not being dumped on Larry Scott at the PAC twelve who announced which announced the next day. Whatever is on all over the big ten from the president to school presidents getting. Bashed. By eleven I guess. Fan Bases. Whatever pressures on the big ten PAC twelve is not at all. PAC twelve plan. We had David Shaw. Hell eight days ago the head coach of Stanford Football. We had on eight days ago and he is on the committee that is aware of all the health conversations that is headed up and part by. Dr Hainline was on our program. Right. From the the chief medical officer we asked I asked David. Sean. Royal we right here is David Shaw to start? Eight days ago. Do you agree with the decision by the PAC ten in the back by the PAC? Ten PAC twelve in the big ten? The word he said was unequivocally. said all the issues he mentioned there were six points that were so unanswered medically and scientifically that they would be derelict to put kids in a position of playing football. I'm imagining that that. Hasn't changed the only thing that has changed his testing potentially being cheaper and more available this new Abbott. Honestly. Ohio state fans say the word Abbott more than Kostenko ever did. To me in the last week. Since. This abbot rapid test that takes fifteen minutes and costs. Five dollars apparently approved. An emergency basis by the FDA. I've read up on. It doesn't answer every question about testing, right? And I have no idea how you get it. Do you does anybody I'm imagining the big ten would one of the rooms it's out there is that the White House called up the big ten say we want to help you from our stockpile Haven't heard any rumors about the PAC twelve on that. You know the reason why that might be is because there's not a lot of swing states in the PAC twelve. This whatever he's talking about right now. Trump just tweeted. Meeting with Kevin Warren. I have no idea if it's GonNa Happen But I just learning that Ohio did this means as I can't say that that's the reason why allows states one? You will how many I don't even nominators enroll against my Alma Mater Cinco scene because it meant just as much to them. Football mentors. She's much to the Buckeye nation when John Cooper was a coach. Or when Tom Brady Took care of business against them in one thousand, nine, hundred you're all laughing. That's now how long ago it's been since. Michigan beat Ohio. State. It's close the fact is that a? Big Ten football in the worst way. But I don't want to be out there and thinking that. It's not safe. Because they can't do it the same way that the NFL is. You guys the last one in two thousand eleven rich. Brady hoke was a coach. Luke fickle I think was taken over as the interim. That was the last year. Ohio state hasn't been in the top ten. Yeah no urban came in and kind of things. Yeah. Man I I have no idea they're coming back but. The NFL I'm I'm all in. I'm excited. And things are different. Things are going to be different. It's going to look different the sideline will look different. That's what I'm told everything's GONNA look different. There's no cheerleaders. There's no nothing. It's GonNa be crazy if. They're gonNA use the entire sideline to distance, and then you know and like and like in baseball all the concepts when put into practice. Might not actually be put into practice what about when you're meeting with the offensive line and defensive. Position maybe everyone will be messed up. You're seeing you know maybe NBA head coaches wearing masks on the sidelines stuff Dan masked up. Doc was wearing a mask just watching the game, right? So We'll see again, one thing that's different too is there's no preseason games there's been no as you know, every training camp has taken place in. in everybody's local hometown. So the cowboys. Were not in. oxnard California this year. And Thus The accoutrements that comes from the cowboys being here in southern California not available. What do I mean by that? Well, every year the cowboys come out to train Jerry Jones would take care of the media that would be here from the metroplex all the way out in southern California and then all the national media that would obviously be here because it's The Dallas cowboys. He would take care of them At a very fancy party. Think one year couple years was the the the. The Posh Mondrian Hotel on on Sunset Boulevard. WHO I believe nothing but the best and then he moved it. More, geographically sound for for those who may not know. Oxnard California. In Ventura County up the coast out. So you made it more geographically silence that of bringing you in to town if you will Los Angeles. He wouldn't hold a dinner at Nobu famed. Sushi establishment other. Fine Foods. Nobu Malibu there is less pot. Well, there's less I guess less. Knotty there's less inaugurates. So Jerry Jones was on his local radio show today that's the setup if you will. On, the local broadcasters asked him, I believe Mr Jones is in his mid seventies. is to how he is handling his own personal business in the era of covert where somebody of his. Age. Might. Be. A. Group, that is a susceptible to the virus. This is answer I'm dealing with virtually delivered over phone I feel out of people but I'm very careful. I'm asked up. Keep my distance. Watch what I'm doing that's not me sitting down to the bar had is not me? But Gerry how are we gonNA make up the socializing this media party? Where are we gonNA find the Sushi here in the metroplex usually get Malibu on the beach well, oh Dr Jones with my rubber glove is going to make sure every one of your safe. All, right I don't know about that although we're comfortable with that Darren. No, no. Thank you to that. midseason Form Jones Jerry Jerry. Something else Dr Jones with my rubber gloves. Make sure every one of your say made a new draw. All right. Made a new drop to. You got the you got the. All. Right. There you go. So, I guess if anybody ever says anything you're on the show you've got to. All right. All right. Academia and you think Jerry Jones is gonNA maybe call in soon but we're we're we're we're hoping we're efforting as you know I mean. Together. Twitter we're trying to do. Appreciate that we're hoping. We're hoping as there are some interesting programming on the horizon on NFL network coming up this weekend, not ready to release information not you. Sorry but we're. Out there. All right. But there you go. All right. You know we could also make another drop. The Guy at the end of the bar is just the best I mean he is in midseason form I. Think he's feeling a teacher I think he's feeling those thirteen wins from San just a little bit. So you cowboys. Thirteen I registered of the day. What he's talking about. Respond. You could literally talk conversation. Conversation. And then of course. Bella doesn't even know what an audio drop is. He has earthly north check subway commercials out.

NFL: Move the Sticks with Daniel Jeremiah & Bucky Brooks

Cris Collinsworth on Social Justice + Lincoln Riley on Communication with his Team

"And now move the sticks with Daniel Jeremiah and bookie brooks. What's up? Everybody welcome to move the sticks DJ and Bucky here buck. What's going on man not too much Dj just a lot. You know it's kind of dealing with everything that has taken place, but I am glad to have a welcome reprieve to has some real conversation, some normal conversation about sports and football, and the like and I think we have a couple of great guests like Chris Collins. Worth is going to join US lead analyst with Sunday Night Football C. O. P., p., f. f. and Lincoln rallied the Oklahoma head coach also stoskopf for minute to share a few thoughts. On both of them. Have some real important words talking about what's going on in the country right now and. Trust me I. Think we've talked about it. We talked about the other day, but I think being able to listen to people in different perspectives and in. It's important during this time so I I think there are some good. That came out of those conversations, so we'll share that with you as we get going here. But before we get into the interviews. Real quick just your take. We talked about this on the TV show, but just your take on the news. That coaches are get a chance to get back in the building. It looks like there's at least some positive news on that front I. Think Real Positive I. think is important. It's a big first step towards having a training camp that it looks like it might begin on time. I don't want to be over the optimistic, but it of seems like the NFL is going to proceed as schedule, and so for the coaches getting back chance, but you can get a lot. A lot of work done virtually, but sometimes you want to be. In company with people to have these conversations to do some of the planning to get some of the XS and Os and logistics worked out so this is really a very very positive step when it comes to planning. Because I do believe, teams are going to have to rely on those contingency plans. Now that we know training camp is going to take place at team facilities. You may not have some of the field space that you were planning on in training camp. You have to rework the practice schedule and just kind of figure out. How can we get all of this work done and maybe some real real close cozy confines of your home facility. I, think people don't realize to a lot of these a lot of times you have new position coaches or new coordinator, so you get a chance with the defensive coordinator as a new defensive backs coach for them to be in the building together. There's value there. And I know everybody's done their best through zoom in trying to do this thing virtually, but I think the coach is being able to be together. That is going to be helpful as they prepare for the upcoming season. Yeah, I think is going to be really helpful, and even though we all like working from home, there are some distractions they may exist. That may prevent you from fully being all the way engaged, but now being able to get into the office. In Canada have some of those restrict distractions removed. You really can begin to focus in on what we want to get done in training. Camp will want to get done. The first boarded the sees. Last thing and we'll get to these interviews, but I had a conversation with the coaching buddy, and he brought this point up and I thought it was. It paralleled over to Scouting I. Think it's the same here. We always ask players. You remember when the combine in the in the meeting interviews. The combine meetings players and prospects, and you'll hear some questions like how are you as a competitor? You know how important is winning to you, you know. How much do you love football and people give you answers, and you take everything with a chunk of salt, not a grain of salt, because everybody's GonNa say the positive things and this coach up a great point. He said he was talking to somebody. WHO said this year we're going to find out the answers to those questions, and that's going to be with NFL players and with college players because you have been on your own, if you if you were all about. About winning if you love football, and you're passionate about it, you're gonNA show up that first day and you're gonNA. You'RE GONNA. See A guy that's in shape. That's been working hard. That knows the offense or defense has studied. He is ready to go because there's been no hand holding through this off season Bucky it's every man for himself. You're going to have some guys. Come in I'm telling you get ready for the stories you know. Player player. X showed up twenty five pounds overweight. There's going to be those stories I. guarantee it yet. You talk about the conditioning level, I think we're actually going to find out about. Teaching styles from coaches and learning ability from players, because they're some players who just get it better with their on the field and able to go through walk walk-throughs and physically go through the process of learning and office or defensive scheme where other guys can take it? We used to always say eight can go from the board to the field. You draw up short-term they to feel they don't have issue. It is going to be a challenge for coaches to separate the guys that may need a little extra time walking through these things as As opposed to the guys that are able to get it as presented virtually, and I think that's why if you look at the size of coaching staffs in the NFL. It's never been bigger than it is. Now there is as coaches. Every single position group has at least two coaches and I love your perspective on that one. You started playing. That was not the case you do not have to DB. Coaches to offensive line coaches to to receiver coaches. They can split up that room a little bit, and maybe one of those coaches. Coaches can take some of these young kids or new guys under his wing, and really try and get some on the field time with those guys, yeah, depending on how they break him out. So for instance in the defensive backfield they would have a safeties in a corners coach. Will maybe you just have a secondary coach in an assistant and what I would do is our treat that assistant, not disrespecting them, but I would treat him like a g. here's what I would like you to do. When I got older players over here. Here on what you work with the younger players over here on the basics I want them to really understand so when they get those limited reps that they're going to get a won't perfection I want them to really understand what we're asking them to do, and are really worry about the younger players, and how you develop them in this condensed environment where you don't have as much time to really put him on the field like we would in ot as in minicamps. How are we going to get those young guys up to speed? I remember. Remember when you're playing. And they always used to use that that acronym right? Keep it simple stupid. You know like Hey, this is the time to do that. Let's not try and get too complex to crazy. Let's get some core principles and some core. Schemes and understand and be able to execute him at a very high level. Yes, DJ I think that's really going to come into. Play the challenges coaches at all of this time in the off season. overthink everything that they WANNA do schematically, and the best teams are the ones that are going to be able to keep it pretty tight. A real tight menu really focused on getting the gas up to speed to play fast early, and in slowly at onto their office of in. MINUES US as the season gets going. Well. It's going to be a challenge for everybody involved. It is good news. At least we get the coach back in the building, and it looks as if this point time we're gonNA get going on time training camp. So that's exciting news all right? We tease at the top. We had a chance to visit with Chris. Collins where Tuesday's sharp as it gets and I think you guys are GonNa really enjoyed this conversation. Excited to be joined by our next guest. Chris, Collins worth I feel almost goofy introduced him in his accolades. Everybody knows he's the lead analyst for Sunday night football. He's the CEO of. He was a fine wide receiver in his day as well. Chris thanks so much for taking the time for us today. Pleasure is I really enjoy watching your show I. appreciate that look this is. It's a crazy crazy world. We're living right now. Chris, and we were talking a little bit before we went on air. Just you know as you as a young boy growing up it. It almost feels like we've seen similar turmoil. You've seen it in your lifetime. What would love to get your thoughts and maybe some hope out there for everybody? Yeah, I I'm. I don't feel like I'm the right person to be speaking as to some of these issues. I certainly have lived a lifetime of this Nineteen sixty eight of course of the whole civil rights, movement and Martin Luther, King and Bobby Kennedy. You know. Malcolm X. I read Malcolm X.. Spark and trying to understand you know what so many people can't understand and. I think we're all thinking about Colin Cabernet in the symbolism of. Exactly what his protests was at the time at the lead respond in the right way would have been better off of individual owners. Maybe add their own reaction and had the right to do whatever they in particular. One of the do Irena. You know I think. All of our brains are are all over the place, but. George flowing shirt. didn't deserve what happened to him, and and I think that's where you start. You just hope that it gets better. You know careers having grown up in locker rooms and been in locker rooms and play with all kinds of players. How can sports actually be a united force during this time I? Don't think I'll ever forget. The first time I drove my friends home from a basketball practice. and. We're certainly weren't a wealthy family. By any means an my parents were teachers, and and so billy at a nice house nice middle class house. And took a couple of my friends home to their neighborhood, which I've never been to in. There were dirt roads and. Probably could be best described as shacks And it was stunning for me in I. Just remember going. Wow, this is where you guys live. And he was like yeah. I mean we had been. Sort of on the same teams in best friends forever, and that was startling and. There was the integration of schools that happen When my dad was actually the principal at the time, and there were fistfights every single day that were happening in our school, and it was left my dad to go to the the Black Church, and then the rednecks church. And he always described that he was way more afraid at the redneck church because he was seen as a traitor. So I've been in a lot of discussions with the lot of teammates with a lot of friends. You know it carried through to college, certainly carried through the. Nfl Were Wash with Colin Cabernet. We Watch. They're just. There's just so many things that come into play with this whole thing, but it's tough. I mean it's really tough to watch. It's it's tough to watch. Time after time you know in the frustration and the idea that there was when you watched. What happened to George Floyd? There was no debate to be had right I. mean there was there was just though debate we saw? We know what happened exactly when you talk about team and communicating and that's being able to speak, but also being able to listen. I think maybe, Chris. That's one lesson that society we can take is there's times you need to sit there and listen as well instead of speaking all the time. This is what it is right I. mean there's no denying. Don't think I don't think anybody is trying to make a case for what we saw was. WAS ANYTHING OTHER THAN HORRIFIC I? Think the more important case to be made is that? Short of the video cameras. In nuanced versions of this that happen every day to people around the country that you have to. You have to be able to understand that this one is. A clear, black and white issue, but there are shades of gray that are happening every single day that aren't on camera, and maybe don't quite reach this level of perfection that we can all agree on I think but you know not only do the. The the obvious case like this have to change all along the spectrum has to change, and that's the Oh you know that's all we up. So occurs obviously the guys who can bring about change as we take like this weird off season with the pandemic with the rise of the things that we've seen of late coaches and coaches being challenged. You really get their teams up and running for the twenty twenty. Twenty season without being around him in your experience like it was a little more old school in training camp. How do you think coaches go about getting teams ready to play in the midst of the day? I think it's GonNa. Be Tough for the new guys in others question. If you've got a new team, you're a new head coach. You're a new offense coordinator. You're the Carolina Panthers if you will. And you've got to try Jesus thing together. I think it's going to be tough. Bucket you've been around it as much as I have, though I mean, how many different ways are there to run inside zone outside zone traps hours league, right I mean. There's eight running plays in the NFL Kaelin Regatta. Have that the? Core passing game is sort of the same. But for some Tom Brady going into a new situation, and whatever blending of that offense, there might be it's it's going to be unique and and will the teams. Like the Kansas, city chiefs. Basically stood pat for the most part. And just pick up where they left off. Just having huge advantage to start this next season. My guess has to be yes, right? You've gotta think. Once. You've got your Bloomberg. You've been working inside that playboy with the same basic core players now for for five or six years that that has to be an edge over a new coach coming in or a new quarterback. You know quarterbacks naturally the center of attention and they will distract us because we have fat mahomes. We have Lamar Jackson two guys that have been back back. And only their second season Chris, what was behind the young quarterbacks had a success right away and teams being able to build upon next success by surrounding them with good teams. Well. It takes a lot to be Russell Wilson right to be Aaron. Rodgers Tom Brady to be drew brees. Where you've been paid right, you gotta pay the thirty million that thirty, five, million, forty, million wherever we're going here. And now. Really good players on your team had to be cut because they had to pay you and so now. Okay, Yeah Russell Wilson. You are fantastic when you run at rookie contract and now can you keep that level of play going once you get paid and some of those players around you now have to be. Rookies have be younger players and. Free agents and some of the things that he's had to sing. There's not you know they're. They've never paid off. It's of. Russell you're on your own right? Let's go out there and make some plays and and see how it goes. So I think that that is the question for the young quarterbacks. The Patrick Mahomes a Lamar Jackson's Chan you. Still play at that level. If in fact, the players around you are at a lesser level than what you're used to playing. I don't think anybody who's looking at Patrick. Mahomes and going. This guy is GonNa regress right I mean everything that he's dining played. One of the one of the worst games I personally had seen him play for three quarters in the Super Bowl, and still brought his team back to be world champions, so those are some of the questions that are coming up with these young. Young quarterbacks when you look at those quarterbacks on those second contracts Chris I. Think about you know the New Orleans. Saints drew brees even though he's on that bigger money deal. They've done such a good job in the draft that I still feel like you could say that. If not the most talented one of the most talented rosters in the NFL, but I think it goes to your point of. If you've paid the quarterback man, you can afford fewer mistakes especially when it comes to the draft. Yeah and it's you know the whole new, Orleans saints thing you look it down. In the one year. They had the draft where they got the four starters out of it. And you know, and it just carries them for you know four five years. When you hit on one like that, so yeah, the draft always going to be the key thing. I've got two dogs in the house are welcomed. They were walking. Away A grandbaby number two, but. Yeah I think absolutely the being able to pick out those players for for people who've never done it. You never actually tried to watch film. Study the draft study. The team needs and take a look at which player you would actually pick and figure out how many times you are wrong I, mean so wrong. Majett it is? It is the most bizarre thing I've been doing it now for I. Don't know four or five years since I've been affiliated with bff been able to really watch the study at, but if you're heading fifty percent, you're pretty good right I. mean you guys are experts in the field. What? What's the percentage that you feel good about? Chris I. Always say this I always said this to my buddies in the league. When we're with teams, we had to be right seven to ten times right. On they know how you had greater the guys you select. Your in the media. You got a great all these guys you get judged on all two hundred fifty five players in terms of how you had because we've both been draft bucket. Tell you the stories to where man. That's the smartest pick in the world. They took this guy. What a hit and where they don't know if the guy that got picked before us would have been there. We take him and he was a complete bust, so we Kinda lucked out with that guy falling into our lap, but I think this is harder when. When you gotTA? Try and get all of them Put your resume on all these guys out there. Well Patrick Mahomes! What did he fall to number? Ten number eleven something like that draft so everybody every time somebody tells me Oh. Yeah, I knew all along I knew that was the guy that did not, and you knew that was going to be seen so far you to train it up the number one pick and traded ever draft choice. You had for the next three years, so stop it. I don't even want to hear. Chris I WANNA. Lean back on your experience as a quarterback I in high school in College you guy that can run around and make plays with your legs, running options and stuff like that it Florida. We have seen more of these ethic quarterbacks really pop at the NFL level. What do you think the difference is today's football where those guys are not only acceptable, but there are thriving in the national football league. I think they're getting a chance. I think they're building offenses around their skillset. and Lamar Jackson. skillset was so obvious playing little that you knew somebody was going to give them a chance, but in Baltimore. They did way more than that. They had Greg Roman as the offense coordinator they had. A plan and I. Think probably the most misunderstood thing about Lamar Jackson is that people think that he's Russell Wilson County guy that he's. the Shawn Watson Kai Guy who really is going to try and create on his own and move around. I would say if you took Lamar Jackson and put them with Russell Wilson Aaron. Rodgers, and John, Watson, he's probably the most part of a pocket passer of any of the four. Right I. Mean I mean he really isn yet. They created this one game where the the quarterback is the runner so effectively what it does is it adds of locker to the mix I mean there's one more blocker at the point of attack than there would be. The quarterback turned around and hand off so. The fear of of getting that guy injured is obviously you know a tough thing, but I also think dip from a franchise's standpoint, and there's only a handful of Patrick mahomes and Lamar Jackson is out there. But there has to at least be thought right now of what's going on as far as do we WANNA draft redraft a quarterback every five years, so in other words if you take him in the first round, and you get them for five years, and maybe you you. You can develop an offense the works around there and the choices. I've got to now pay that guy, forty or forty five million dollars, or do I WANNA go back into this pool of quarterbacks. That is college football where I can find guys like that that maybe aren't going to be drafted by other teams. Is that now of formula for success and the Lake I think the money is becoming a really interesting part of the quarterback position, and and who are we going to pay that thirty five to forty million dollars and we're already seeing that this year. I the whole Dak Prescott thing. Is. HOW ARE WE GONNA? Push that boundary in that gap, and what percentage of that payroll arena give to the quarterback position I think it's a fascinating discussion, because you know that that's one way of looking at it, and you look at the success of teams of quarterbacks, rookie deals, but man. It is GONNA take. Courage to allow somebody you know a successful at the most important position to let him walk out of the building, and then you think of teams like the Washington Redskins who have been in an quarterback purgatory for so long, I mean you can go decades trying to find that guy Do you think we will see the day? Will somebody who actually have the courage to go through with that? We. Almost thought that it might happen. With with Baltimore, and it has to some extent with rg three and all that day if you bill. Are Because you can find those guys. Right can find the the mobile quarterbacks that maybe or great throwers. I started laughing when you're starting out Mike quarterback career because. I could run live crazy, but. AM. But. You're talking about the possibility of if you had three quarterbacks certainly to, but if you had three quarterbacks. That sort of fit that bill right would you be quite as afraid to have? One of those guys get injured. If you believed in the plant and Baltimore what I loved about why Baltimore did was I mean they went all in municipal, uneven, a top ten pick. This was the last pig in the first round, if I remember correctly and they went all in on, and they change their offense, they said he throws it well. We're going to get some speed on the outside at the receiver position. He because he can run it the way that he runs it. We're GONNA. have more one on one throws. We're going to have more open receivers. Maybe not the greatest passer in the world. They manners a whole bunch of us out there, not collins worth, but there's a whole bunch of us out there. They can hit that pass has now. He's got the one on one, and he's got two or three yards. WHO SEPARATION SO I don't know I don't have been it's. It's really interesting to me to see and Allen's flip the money into it as well because let's face it. Those players aren't drafted as highly as the pure passers are the at the top end of the first round. Ring of the Chris Because you talked about the Baltimore Ravens going all in because when you look at it, it's out three quarterbacks. Jackson rg three and trace mcsorley. They all have that ability, so we're does of lead you to think about the Collegian model where you just kind of cycling, those guys in every four to five years and approximating value and PF. You guys kind of find value in players like that so when you talk about that. Do you believe that could be a trend because the conversation's really fascinating to me? jalen hurts this year. Right the same sort of thing and you're sitting there going. Are I- i- traditionally may not have done that. Right I if I'm looking for Tom Brady I may not have been ready to go there. And Lamar Jackson I WANNA put in a little different category, because at lower while he was very much a pocket pass. You could say what you want about. Whatever is throwing the ball, but I think he's proven that he can throw it well enough, obviously to be young view, it's a dumbest statement. But I think the question then becomes if the if the throwing skills or are off just a little bit, so we dug pretty deeply into into Jalen and you go you know as far as accuracy is concerned. He's one of the top two or three most accurate quarterbacks coming out of college football. So now we could do the whole arm strength accuracy debate. Debate until we're all blue in the face, right but I think that accuracy and that sort of run skill that he brought to the table, and the frigging by building thing that the guy was since high school i. mean he's He's like a tailback fullback quarterback I mean he's a really unique guy and so in. Philadelphia ended up drafting him I go. I? Wonder what that means on goal line know I wonder what that means on short yardage because. Peterson's those guys that you know light in Baltimore. He's going for it on fourth down right. He's going to try and score the touchdowns so it just gets more and more intriguing as the quarterback position opens up. We'll talk a lot about the allocation of resources with the money at the quarterback position, but this has been a big off season for teams faced with big decisions and making big decisions on non quarterbacks. We saw the money that Christian McCaffrey got paid. we know obviously pf been at the forefront of this in terms of the value or lack there of at the running back position, but when you look at guys like Christian McCaffrey then you look at somebody like George Kill. Are we to the point now we talk about position list players a lot. On the show when you look at guys like that, who can do so many different things? In terms of paying them, it becomes difficult because you don't just put them in the tight end box or the running back box, just a little more challenging. George Old Travis Kelsey. Rob Gronkowski I can make an argument in a super bowl as you gotta tight end now, right? I mean those guys that have that sort of multiple skill set. It it's it's really intriguing to me. And and now one of the things that were our guys are studying right? Now is a little bit of the okay. We know running bags that can split out in play receiver avenue impact on the defense, and how they're going to deploy the defense, but what if you do the the whole Montgomery thing in Green Bay where you say right, forget that I'm GonNa take the deebo Samuel of the world, and I'm GonNa. Put Him into Backfield I'm. I'm going to go five wide, but depot on occasion when they come in with their quarter defense, I'm GONNA. Put Him back there and let him run. The football away did on in the Super Bowl and there's reverses. This guy is a tank coming around there. In some of those bigger wide receivers that are hard to tackle are now becoming very much in vogue, and when you get right down to it. How much different is he than Travis Kelsey Travis? Kelsey is a great blocker. In space, and they built a lot of their offense around his ability to stay on strong safeties and cornerbacks in space, and be able to make those kinds of plays. So I mean. Again we you can't think Oh nineteen sixty eight football, and and apply it to the NFL today i. mean is just changing all the time and so I know how you guys I. Mean You do all their work in scouting and draft and all that? But you find yourself chasing your tail? Because at some point you have to decide, what are we right? Are we going to be in? Tom Brady kind of team. Are we going to be a Lamar? Jackson kind of team. Are we going to be a Russell Wilson? Team. And it's it's not easy to figure that out. Plus then you gotTa Find I. Mean to me Dak Prescott perhaps the the strongest argument that he has no yeah, the little off field thing having a party during cove nineteen whenever that old thing was, but you've got to have a personality that can lead the Dallas cowboys. You have to have somebody you can prop up in front of the Media Day after day. You have to have somebody that represents. Represents America's team and could also do all this other stuff, so you just can't put some in. Know Wallflower of a guy in there to run the Dallas cowboys offense so I. I mean it. Is this blending of of all this stuff that comes in and you go. Oh, boy, this year I'm GonNa copy the New England pages to copy the Baltimore Ravens got a copy of the Kansas City chiefs, but they're all completely different teams you can't. WHO WORKS FOR EVERYBODY? That's what makes it so much fun to fall. You know it's funny because you bring up a fascinating thing. I've talked about the position this bowl. Discussion, we've talked about athletic quarterbacks and is more and more apparent that Sunday. Football is beginning to look like Saturday football, meaning the NFL is kind of morphing into the college game. So when you're doing your work, if even preparing for you think Sunday night. How much of the college game is blending into the NFL. What. We really kind of started with maybe the wildcat the rpo stuff. The running quarterbacks I mean how many of these guys Patrick Mahomes Russell Wilson Aaron Rodgers I mean they're all doing kind of that rpo. Ish looking thing, but they're just handing the ball off right. It's all they're just. They're just handing at all until. Its fourth and into the fourth quarter in the Games on the line, and if you watch the Kansas City chiefs tape in the Super Bowl. How many times did a new wiggle on an option? Look come into play. I was watching. Andy Rain and what looked like it was going to be a read option kind of kind of alarm. Instead the running back to one step in mahomes faked the ball to. The Defensive End, who now had responsibility who usually was crashing in on the running back because Mahomes was tackling it now that running back took a step, and flared wide, and he froze homes took a step towards them made a pitch. He made so many plays on option Kinda looks on fourth down or on the big moment plays where you are willing to say all right. I'M GONNA put my running quarterbacks skills in play, but only in those moments in the game so now the forty niners defensively. They have an entire game plan because. Because? He's just going to hand this ball. He's not really gonNA keep it. We're GONNA. Go crash running back, but when the game was on the line, Patrick Mahomes is in play of that option and I think that's the right way to play I really do even if you're Tom, Brady, I think that occasionally when everything matters I mean. Hey, Joe Montana did a bootleg I mean Joe Nathan a bootleg for a touchdown right on his bad knees at one time so I think in the key moments. There's still that magic to be half. Are The last question that you've been very generous with your time and we thank you so much. Chris I WANNA go back. We started talking about you. At Florida. You've got to have a spurrier story. Having spent time with spread was the position coach at that time when you were. There coming off being a heisman winner and all that. Yeah, he was, he was actually my offense coordinator. How about this for offense coordinator at Florida? I had Steve. For a while and I had Mike Shanahan for awhile now. Those are the coordinators. Mike Shanahan was twenty six years old after the Games. Have we ever one which we didn't win that much? But if we did, we would go out and we go to. The bars at night and Shanahan would get carded in the rest of us would just walk on. It signed Asia. Idea of where we were when spurrier was the greatest hustler all time. Up probably my favorite one that he not me on, he said he goes. I'll bet you. I can drop kick a field goal from one foot from this goalpost. Let's and he said he took US foot, and he measured out one foot one step away from the goal posts and he said I can drop kick field goal from here. And I was like. Whatever has ended? My Wallet Man Only had Twenty Bucks at the time I said. I'm totally an and and he said he goes I so they handle ball in. This soccer dropped jakes one I do this from here. It went straight up and straight down over the top for fuel, and he did it about ten times in a row I. Don't know how many college kids like maybe you took their twenty bucks off of. It was unbelievable. He had one guy. He Bet one guy that. What are tight ends. A guy named Billy Bell. The. He couldn't catch a ball off the jugs machine at full speed. and. So we're all now you know. What do we do the gun on top in around fifty miles an hour. Something like that, so you can imagine this thing at one hundred miles an hour on this thing, and it's like ten yards away. So, Bill goes and gets his helmet gets his shoulder pads on puts his mouth piece in his mouth, and it's game on. There's more action going on on this thing than anything I've ever seen. As far as over there, he's got the junk gun generated shoot thing in there, really mel sitting there about two hundred and forty pounds. He's ready to take the second. This ball billy bell and him back into the netting underneath the goal. blown-up like this in my entire life, really few ever getting around these spurrier on a golf course on the football field and he wants to make a bet. Just hand them your twenty blocks and walk away because it's over. Christmas so much fun man. I know we kept you a little long, but we want. then. It was so much fun. Thank you for your time. I love you, guys show. Thanks for all you do and watch you all the time, so that's. ALL RIGHT BUCK! There's a lot to unpack there, but just your biggest takeaway from our conversations with Chris Collins worth one I would say Chris Worth is so insightful like I mean he's an encyclopedia of knowledge, not only football of also things, but football terms. I look I. I have to have the conversation about what he kind of talked about. quarterbacks and the athletic quarterback and young quarterbacks and Kuby get to a point where guys of siphoning quarterbacks in and out kind of like a college team. Where you see guys come in five years later four five years later. They graduate. You bring in the next quarterback when you're trying to approximate. And, trying to figure out the way to build a sustainable model, because of the amount of money goes to the quarterbacks I, do wonder is somewhat at the forefront of the movement can't say we're gonNA treat the quarterback position like every other position. We know we're going to have to cycle them out, and we're okay with the incoming the criticism and all the other stuff that's coming our way by just moving off from quarterbacks, instead of hitching wagon the gas for ten fifteen years at the position. All right I'm GONNA use old school story here. When I was a kid. We'd go on vacation and we had A. Like one of those big vans converter van, or whatever and we had, we had a TV that was about eight inches big buck the in this van and it had a VHS recorder, so we would go on vacations. We had four kids, and so we would drive. We drove to Niagara Falls from San Diego. We drove all over the country of Indiana one year, but those who are vacations. We're kind of these driving vacations. In this van. We had vhs player and used to record movies off of TV. Remember those days put. And their click record when a TV movie came on you try and pause it during. The commercial seat wouldn't have fast forward them. What you record it, but we would decide when you go on these trips. Like what movies are you going to bring with you? Like rocky four was Kinda. My was my favorite movie during that time, so we can only bring so many movies, and I think about this quarterback situation. This is a movie. You've got a quarterback's success. Well, this is a move you know and love and like. You've seen it before. You're comfortable with it now I don't feel great about taking movie with me on this trip that I have never seen before. That's what makes me nervous. Now the way you can get around that if you show me preview like okay, I, haven't seen the whole movie, but I've seen the preview, and as looks pretty good I'm going to take it with me I. Think it's going to take. It was your idea. You said this on the TV show the other day I think. It's GonNa take. Free Starter to miss a little chunk of time, and maybe you get to see this other player for four games, but there's enough to get you excited in and that four games you know this guy can run our offense and we'll be okay. Instead of investing thirty five million in recycling this quarterback, we've seen enough of this other quarterback that were comfortable with it, but man you better at least have a preview of that movie or I'm not putting that thing in the van you know I think something like this and I'm GonNa say the name of the coach, but I don't believe. Believe. It is true in the situation with his quarterback Andy Rees history of taking any every quarterback and having success of all the coaches in the national football league I believe he could execute this kind of collegiate model of a quarterback comes in four or five years later. quarterback goes out. Bring me the next quarterback and I could get them running. Obviously. When you deal with a holds, you don't want to operate like that, but someone who is a proven quarterback Guru, a guy who was a whisper who has a long extensive resume a building and developing quarterbacks I think you certainly can. Can be able to do that. I believe cal Shanahan could do a given his success with kirk cousins, seeing what he was able to do with Matt, Ryan, seeing how he's done it with Jimmy, Garoppolo and Nick Mullins I think he could operate in a system where let's say that you don't necessarily draft him in the first round, but in the second row, so let's say the first round. Guys at your five star talents I think Shanahan could take four stores. Guys drafted in the second and third round developed them enough where they could start and be successful and then go back and. And get another four star player and do it over again now. He's GonNa. Lose a letter, analogy, instance basically I i. don't know if you want super bowl with the quarterback. I also don't think you necessarily have to have an a plus quarterback to super bowl, so if you can if you can recycle B B Plus quarterbacks than I think you could have a formula that could work I. Just don't you can't have that much of a drop off and be successful, and that's why Andy Reid even though he's been able to make Kevin cobs and AJ phillies of the world money. He's not going to move on for Patrick Mahomes he knows he's got a Unicorn here. This is kind of a once in a generation guy. Those guys are plus guys. You don't move off the eight-plus guys. Yeah, but I think I think the way that you categorize it is perfect is is one of those things where you talk about in moneyball where money by they were able to Kinda. Approximately value and guys that could write could could walk or get on steel basis, or whatever that is the quarterback position being able to have a clear for the be b-plus talent quarterbacks Andy Dalton was a second round pick. Russell Wilson was a third round. Round pick guys that can easily outplayed their draft status, but you get them in the right. We'll house Dak. Prescott would be a perfect experiment when you think about be B-plus quarterbacks. You get them you squeeze out all of the Jews as you can out of him, and then you let them walk, and you find another one that can do the same things it would take someone that is bold and courageous, but it would be interesting to see how they're working the team building process because it would afford to opportunity to build up the supporting cast around him. You always would be able to have Abiola supporting cast to elevate a B. B. Plus quarterback. It's so true against. Somebody's going to do it at some point time. We're GONNA. See Somebody be bold and make that decision. It's going to have to be somebody who has tremendous job security. To Take that type of risk, but it is going to happen. one of the other parts of that interview which was powerful was was Chris Collins talking about where we are as a country discussing the murder of George Floyd in the reaction that we've seen from that and telling stories of of child had grown up in the sixties, and and what he saw with his dad as principal. I I thought it was really powerful words there. From Chris Collins Worth and we also had a chance to talk with Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley about how do you approach your team? And? What's the message to those guys and here's his response. Well, very excited to have Oklahoma head coach, Lincoln Riley joining us now and coach I. Guess First Question for you. During the very uncertain times we find ourselves in right now. Have you had a chance to communicate at all with your team? About what's going on in the world affects forever me. We certainly have it's. It's like you said it's A. It's certainly interesting. Times are now so much going on in the world with pandemic, and then all. That's going on in our country right now. It's It's a topic that's very near, and dear to all of us and so we have we been able to communicate with our players both on. A first and foremost, making sure they're okay. second having great productive discussions about all. That's going on in the world and at how we can. One be a great example to use our platform to to peacefully tastefully well-thought-out. Manner to. Express! Our thoughts and beliefs individually in both as a program. I think it's an important time for that and certainly not something that we'd take lively. You know coach is a unique time when you're a young. Hey, coach and you're trying to figure out. How do I handle the messaging to the team? Are they mentors? The people that you can lean on to kind of bounce ideas off of. Yeah absolutely in all some of the ones that I've been able to work with you know Bob stoops was kind of the ultimate at situations like this I felt like always had a great pulsa, the team, and and the right way to navigate through difficult times and then. Ruffin McNeill. Has always been a been a great friend and somebody that I've leaned on another guy that handled. Any tough time so so well to the years, and had such a great bond with his players, and so that events events several, but those two in particular. So it's, it's challenging. Right I. If you're in a leadership position like Lincoln, Riley all these college head coaches. You've gotta find a way to be encouraging to your team to listen to your team. To deliver the right words, and he also talked in this in this conversation about having mentors that have helped guide him through this period of time, which is very important. Yeah, the mentors, your pieces is important, not only from a player to coach or coast player, but also coast to coach. He talked about two guys that really impacted him Bob Stoops and Ruffin McNeill and I'll talk about Ruffin McNeill because Russia. Russia McNeil was a longtime coach at East. Carolina Lower East Carolina actually gave Lincoln Riley an opportunity to office quarter very early in his career at East Carolina. Ruffin joined eventually joined Lincoln Riley at Oklahoma and it. Kinda played into rolling. T stepped away to take care of an ailing family member to be able to have someone that you can lean on that. You can have these hard conversations with that you. You can kind of rely on their opinion to help. You have perspective. I think it matters and I must say this. I love with Lincoln. Riley is standing for what he's been about ever. Since the pandemic has started, he's been one of the few coaches to talk about now. I WanNa make sure I do right by the players. We'll get the football part of. It figured out like we can figure that. That part of it out, but I WANNA make sure that my young people are healthy. They're safe. They're secure. They're able to really go about. It the best possible way and I liked that because his actions also matches words, there are a lot of coaches out there giving lip service, but their actions aren't matching up. Lincoln rallies. Actions are certainly matching up with the words that he's been putting out there. I also like in regards to the pandemic in his plans. There have him saying look. I'm not rushing these guys back here, you know. He knows the amount of time to get ready for a season and trust me. It's a lot less than a lot of these paranoid college. Coaches believe they feel like you've got to have this long. Run up to able to get ready to play a season. We, don't will be fine. You know we'll get a few weeks a training camp, and then we'll be off and running here and they'll be ready to go and keeping the main thing, the main thing which is the safety of your players and I thought that was a good message there from Lincoln Riley Yeah I think it's a great message and you're. You're right DJ. We've made it four more complicated in needs to be entered of being able to get a team ready most coaches have said six weeks a month of training a month of football specific stuff like you could probably get it done and Lincoln Riley System. Remember this. It is a pretty simple and clear system for the quarterback when you. Can live in the simple world. It makes it easy for you guys to get ready, and because he's been there for a while, guys understand it. Guys kind of at least have a surface level knowledge of what he wants to get done office in defensively. To Oklahoma sooners, it'd be also. We have to get a lot of talented players to. No doubt. All right back well, this is this. Is it for saying anything else? You want to add before we wrap this thing up. None of it makes you tune into the mood? STAKES SHOW ON TV we're. GonNa be on Thursday six PM eastern Saturday six am eastern network going to air of make sure you tune it. Yeah, that six am again. If you're up for that.

"Haiti and sixty six I'm todd Hella Bay Newsradio wham eliminating next news at ten thirty breaking news when it happens anytime another hour. Bob Laws. Bury starts now on newsradio whammo of eighty. Thank you, sir. I appreciate that troops I appreciate you showing up for your ball, KUNA copacetic on your and right now the secretary of Defense mister expert is Talking at the Pentagon is talking about the use of federal troops to maintain order he says I do not support invoking the insurrection act. That's good neither do I. this is not an insurrection. At worst and I not to say to minimize this. There's very damaging riots that will you know? Take years to come back from? There seems to be a clear concerted effort to try to overrun some of the buildings at our central government to include the White House, and that's not appropriate. But we're we're. We're not an insurrection. The this is I think a week that has been orchestrated at an ad hoc level. The the the the rising of people sentiments is natural and good were a free speech country What's on your mind ought to come out your mouth. Go ahead, stand up and be heard. I think that some of the political exploitation of it has been planned my certain people. Opportunistically and I think that some of the violent turning of it has been a planned by certain other people opportunistically. They were somewhat laying in wait and here's the deal. I think that lovely Warren may have sort of put her finger on it on Saturday and Sunday. There may be a phenomenon that takes place. I'm not justifying it. Looting is always wrong the whole ten yards I'm with you. but there may be a model for disruptions like this that certain activists and that's. That's too polite word. Some people were activists are fine. These people on describing are criminal in their conduct and not fine, but. When you have something that touches a lot of people's hearts, and they come together passionately, and few things are more passionate than freedom, right, it is for me I hope it is for you. It clearly is for these people who are gathering together for the marches and demonstrations. That's about freedom believing in freedom with all your heart is the American way two thumbs up on that right. begin a lot of people together they have emotion, and in this circumstance the emotion is often directed at. We're GONNA come before the court building where we think we get screwed over. We're GONNA. Come before the police department where we think we get screwed over. We're GONNA come before the city hall where we think we get screwed over. That makes that make sense, right. Right if we're if we're the people and we have a grievance we're GONNA. Come to you the object in the center of it and we're going to stand here and we're GONNA make Our voice heard our wishes known so far were all in the First Amendment were all I it it. You know just believe in freedom passionately, but I think that there are. People and organizations, and you know I think it's more than just some hippies, swap and facebook messages. I think that there's some money in there and some coordination in there that is of a very sinister nature. Not with the initial demonstrations, but kind of how the mayor said there are these provocateurs or wherever they called who win the people raising the voice of freedom have gathered wherever they're going to gather. there are certain other people who decide to pull the pin on the grenade. And they will engage in one of the pictures that chief. Moore of the Rochester Police. Department Put Up there yesterday was a guy who is setting a Rochester police car on fire in. He has a box which he has carried with him, which looks like for all the world that it could be the the makings of an incendiary device now I'm not all that smart about how you make a car. Burn right, but you don't see. Many cars burn very often. Even in rex cars don't tend to burn right. So how is it that they were able to set? Was it two or three or four cars quickly and effectively on fire? Well. It wasn't because you know who's L- Fritz pulled out his ZIPPO. ZIPPO, it used to be a lighter. You can buy one in Pennsylvania. They still make him but I. I know I. Do they flick mix? How exactly do we light our marriage on I? Don't know, but what they clearly somebody came there. It seems with arson on the mind. Which is a felony and planning that is a conspiracy to commit a felony, and when the same thing happens place after place in city after city in states all across our country. Again that's a little more than hippies. Swap in facebook messages. That's domestic terrorism. Right. That's domestic terrorism. Could. It be funded by Russia could be funded by China. Could it be funded by George? Soros could it be funded by who knows what I I I don't know. Could be. But somewhere. There's like a sinister thing going on, and and here's the deal you have the reputable with now are going to provoke the police. We're going to get a reaction and this notion again. Lovely. Warren pointed to I don't believe in the trap was laid for us. We fell new a trap. I think we have more personal moral agency than that. But you know if I had if I hit a nail with a hammer, it's going to go into. The would yeah I can hit that nail with a hammer. A A million different times. A million for nails are going to go into the wood. And maybe there is some dynamic of the tension and stress and anger of Urban America that has been detected and is being exploited right maybe when you set the COP car on fire. Maybe the that you know the you've got a circumstance where you know if a happens than be will happen, and so if you want be to happen, you make sure a happens and and I. I don't doubt and I think I believe that there are these provocateurs out there. Again domestic terrorists. And I think they anticipate and understand that by doing a they're going to get be which is going to be the Louisville looting and the rioting. And I think that that is their their desire. And you know that you know the we've got three different types of people here. the protesters God bless. You have a wonderful day, but when there is the infiltration by the riot starters, that's the people and I think that's who the Rochester Police Department is going after they've mentioned that the federal government investigators are involved as well. Again I don't think this is a coincidence city after city I. Think it's a criminal conspiracy. I think it's domestic terrorism. It may have foreign authorship or funding It may be domestic authorship and funding but I know that it is creating heartbreak and destruction, violence and division, and it's hurting our country. Every person in this country is hurt by this and the this. All arrests on the nexus of Kinda like what lovely Warren said, the people who spark the match and start the riot. They purposefully are doing something. Is it to create chaos true anarchist dream of a society that devolves so that they may reshape it from the ashes in their progressive Marxist view. or is it Russia? Just F ING with us. Right is it China F ING with us? Because China in the midst of this has done to bold moves against the freedom of Hong Kong Taiwan two of its long standing strategic interests. It did while we're looked the other way diverted by this. An Enemy hath done this. An enemy has done this the line from literature, there or scripture something and it really not the marchers. And and to be honest with you. The looters in this are really just kind of being useful idiots. But the people in the middle the provocateurs. That's where that's where we need answers, and we need them as soon as possible Because what they did once they can do again and who knows if this is the end of their effort, it may be just the beginning to two to eleven eighty, one, eight, hundred, two nine five eleven eighty am Ikea. Conspiratorial EST have I gone nuts, what thank ye back with your calls in just a moment on Newsradio, wham eleven eighty. Me And you? visit deal. Buried you know what you're that song was is being with the great very bare views worth sixty, seven, nine, hundred, sixty seven. Here's the deal friends that song right there. which at least to my age in mind seems hip and current, and with it and present their grandfathers and great grandfathers who were sitting in rice, paddies, or at airfields are on boats in Rivers or at sea over in Vietnam, when they were young Fellas who heard that song same word say music. same notes same message probably EJ. I appreciate you calling up welcome to Newsradio, wham eleven eighty. Good Morning. Concerning that song that was the national anthem of non when I was there. my question is how many cities of rioting occurred in that are under the control of the Republican mayors. None. That's strange. When here's him? That may be a function of very few large American cities have Republican mayors. Okay, all right that makes someone like they were there. There's there's there's not very much chance of to be any right. Thank you, thank you but I. You know I may I? I make that point and and here's the deal. I would probably say to the Democratic Party. That I should talk to that guy. More Bob Vietnam I apologize I would say the Democratic Party not trying to be partisan today, but You guys have failed. May Be particularly. Right! If the issue before us is inequity and society towards African Americans. African Americans. Statistically are far more likely. To live in governments. That are led by Democrats. The police departments. Who Engage in this conduct? That is alleged to be racist. Are Overwhelmingly police departments that are overseen by Democrats City Councils and Democrat mayors. And and more than half most of them are in states that are led by Democrat governors. So it the the deal is that that many a disproportionately large number of African Americans live in communities, cities and states that are governed by Democrats, and when it comes to like if you live in a city, the the. Hood is that it's been led by Democrat for many many years. Decades made me right. So. These problems. And the failure to solve them. Have occurred. With Democrats charge. And the overwhelming majority of the alleged misuse and Racism Bhai Police has occurred departments that are overseeing by Democrat mayors. And so you know whether the whatever happened. You didn't fix the problem. Right. I don't know if you're part of the caused the prom or not, but you did not fix the problem. Though the victims of it were your constituents, and the perpetrators of it were your employees, that's something that ought to be part of this big conversation that were supposedly going to have news, and then you news the Great Todd Halliday by Gosh on Newsradio wham eleven eighty. If if it's okay for half a second I hate to disappoint, you could I, could we? Could we not talk about like riots, or whatever like that or even like a deadly viruses review minutes? That'd be okay. No. Not Nor murder. Hornets or that nasty rash. You have in your growing Larry. I don't want to talk about any of those things for half a second like talk about politics. There's a big election coming up on the twenty third for a variety of races. And we'll start looking at these close. We're a little more than three weeks out. you know people in both parties have got some significant choices to make, and which will have in all honesty, depending on which way they go potentially consequences for maybe ten or twenty years into the future so big stuff coming well. One of them is this. Twenty. Seventh district in New York in the House representatives that Congress seat, held by Chris Collins or a as Dr. Don L. Heart calls and Chris Fallon. Just getting I. Think it was a slip of the time but on his part not mind when I say that Chris. Collins is Chris Felon, that's a hundred percent on purpose and also completely threw anyway the point. Is that on the twenty third of this month the big special election day two things are going to happen. Chris Jacobs who is a millionaire from Buffalo, it Chris Jacobs is going to run against nate mcmurray a town supervisor from I. Think in Niagara County or something. I don't know some place Grand Island, maybe but nate mcmurray versus Chris Jacobs nate the Democrat Jacobs Republican. They will run in a special election for the remainder of the term of Chris Collins, which is the end of this calendar year right so there'll be an actual vote for someone to go to Congress which would be nice. I live out in that district. We've not had a congressperson representing us in. Oh let me see. When Tom Rentals, stop it anyway. It's been quite a while, but we we we we since Collins had his problem with the law. We've had nobody so there will be that special election. There also will be a primary and it will be between the anointed one Chris Jacobs WHO's very happy? He got a tweet from trump or something there. That's Nice and a gentleman by the name of Stefan Mahalia Lou who I think, is Eerie County treasurer or something like that comptroller. I don't know. Forgive me something, neary county and then there's also this lady bath par Latta who? Used to be or maybe still is a town justice in Darien. And it's interesting because you have seen in your mailbox. If you live in that district, a lot of mailings from Mister Mahoney do and if you get two calls in just a second, okay, I am hard up. Don't hang up on me or I please stay there, but So, you're getting a lot of mailings. If you live in the district and are a Republican from Mister Mahoney do, and then you also see a lot of a tag ads on the TV if you watch. Rochester Buffalo Television of Chris Jacobs Against Beth Parramatta. Who I? I think invented covert. Is that what he said? I don't know is whatever she. She's the one who created lake effect snow just to screw with people. Why did she do I? Don't know no I apparently. Chris Jacobs this is a part. Lada Apartado, or nine I'm not I'm not really good with the. I, don't know a lot of my name to say him, but. She is very evil according to him which I take a very good sign. If the millionaire boy is spending his dollars to trash, this lady that means, she must be doing good in the polls, because here's here's just one guy and I, you know I, have proven myself to be very very bad at either picking winners or picking good candidates. I'm just going to tell you I live in his district. What I'm GonNa do all right. I'm not going to vote for in the special election between nate, mcmurray and Chris Jacobs. I'M NOT GONNA. Vote Because you know I am going to trust my neighbors. My neighbors will vote. You know they'll pick. They'll pick whoever they pick but I. You know. I can't bring myself to vote for either one of them, right? In the Republican primary I'm going to vote for Beth PARLATO and I. Think it's unfortunate, Mahoney blue who's a good guy got in the race You wonder if he's doing Jacobs, a favor in somewhere and other beget I like see the campaign finances on everybody over there, but you know high Lou got into the race late and the. The net impact of him. Being in the race is to make it almost certain that Chris Jacobs wins that primary in an whoever wins the Republican primary, and the twenty third will win the general election in November. There's virtually no doubt about that but here's the people say no. You have to vote for Jacobsen a special election. The Democrat might win. Well. Okay, then you know great. Nate naked go be a congressman for a few months. I think he's got kids. Take the kids shaw around. Give them a tour. Have Fun, you know. Make the most of it but I. I'm just tired of a party. That sells it seat to the a millionaire who pay the most, and that would be my Republican, Party and I just WanNa play a Beth. La Only. She has very much money. And and you know I don't know what your views are minor, pretty conservative She's the closest to my views. I vote for her. And you know that's that's all. She wrote so the they're making a big deal. Trump likes Chris Jacobs. Plainly suggest that I don't think trump knows Chris Jacobs. And you know so there. There's there's there's that Ed glad you called up. Sarah Welcome to newsradio Ham eleven eighty. Five. How you doing starting good buddy I hope you're the same. Yeah Yeah I'm I'm doing okay. I just wanted to go back to that point that you were talking about earlier. that lovely warrant made about the instigators that are within the crowd and the me it's it's fabulous, and you can see it because one of the things I noticed. is that. when they're doing simulcasts of different cities where they're having these demonstrations at the same time. If you watch the tactics of the crowd, they're almost identical. and. If you'll notice a couple of the tactics that they use are very very clear to me now. Is that what you do is? It's like a cadre. This cadre that you have this group of people have is segmented and. What they're doing. They eight the innocence in other words. The people that are there you know. Rightfully upset. It's what has happened. Demonstrating facing their concerns, but they're being exploited by these manipulators I don't know who they are, but you know they are the savage tour's. That hijacked these protests. And what they do is the you'll see them. They'll all start clapping their hands on the same time. And then the next tack that you'll see is their hands. Go in the air. Putting your hands up, don't shoot. Why don't you watch the same thing that happens? All of a sudden stuff gets thrown out of the crowd. And if you'll notice the whole tone as part of this cadre, they don't offer fire their weapons. That was you know Frank's biles, whatever it's just a few, and so it's very difficult to see past all these people with their hands in the air. As, and then what they do is now what they get. The police stirred up because that's they're going and they get them focused. That's when they start. You know breaking into these places all right and they're not there to loop. They could care less about killing anything. They're just there to break down the walls like I said saboteurs. That allows the looters to go in the, and by the way you use the term. Earlier and I agree with you know these are people that have been duped. You know they. They think that. Hey, let's get some sneakers and stuff or whatever? They run in. They do the leading. they are the looting, and the focus is off them its. Doors, is that when the looters and then they're on to the next objective and they just keep going down the street and repeating the process. So it's a mess and you know I think the police I think they're an unwinnable situation. I. Don't agree with you. I think that the National Guard should be brought into you know especially I go I. GO National Guard. I wouldn't bring federal troops. I'd bring National Guard absolutely. National and but the D. C. Mayor said you know she doesn't have that like. You need help your regular. Please can't do this because you have to have people who are dealing with the innocence in other words that can be the national guard, but then you have to have the police that can push pass them actually isolate. We'll these. Troublemakers are in the crowd that are really that are really creating the issue in the problems and right now you can't do it because you can't cut the cops. You know with the with the dealing with just the whole map young. Work No well said. I agree with you ED. Nice so appreciate your your analysis and insight and here's thing. That's what lovely Warren said the first day I, mean she? She threw in. You know these are not of our community and I think we focused on that phrase too much. It may have been you know a a less than artful phrase, or maybe you misunderstood, but that wasn't the issue. and we got sidetracked the issue of. and again when you say outside the actual people doing it may be from here. This whether it's Antifa or whether it's anarchists, or whether it some you know they don't know it, but it's russian-backed whatever it is, they can have people who believe in that and play that game. Who are right from here, but it is clear I mean with each new day in each new thing you watch at night. This is coordinated. Somebody went to. Here's the thing when you have people who are all fighting the same. Same. Way It's because they all went to the same school, right? We're going to find that school. Break that we need to find out WHO's behind this. What organization? What country What? What party I don't mean? Democrat or Republican but we need to find out who's behind this, because this is not the voice of the people rising, this is the voice of the people being exploited for the ruin of us all. This is an attack upon America which is very cunningly is is using Americans as a cover for it to eleven eight. Is that right? Is that how you see it? to two to eleven eighty, one, eight, hundred, two, nine, five, eighty back with you, and just a moment on newsradio. Damn eleven eighty. Maybe Miss. Ari in music of the sixties. Here's the deal. I mean that kind of makes sense. people were speaking about what was important and significant in their day, and you know those same strains, those same issues important insignificant in in our day Phillips I'm glad you called US ma'am. Welcome to Newsradio wham eleven eighty. Am I the ma'am. Yes, Ma'am! Thank you Bob for informing us about candidates and I do digress from these really important issues, but I'm trying to think what I want for my seventy fifth birthday, and it was just gushing about a rifle that sounded good for me to own. That's what I want. Was it a twenty gauge? A shotgun. and. What do you WanNa do first of all? Let me say you sound so robust and full of life or seventy five. Good for you good for you. And I don't have Arash you don't have a rash well, let let let me let me verify that ma'am. Let me just check interest a science. You, what do you? What do you want the shotgun to do what you WANNA do. Full that I can hold it in my puny little arms, and say really you WANNA. Break my house. I don't think so. A twenty gauge shotgun would probably serve awfully well H-. How Tall Are you about? Five three five, three. Okay, Great. Yeah, they work perfectly well. Okay, thank you it are you? Is your seventy fifth birthday like soon or something or November by thinking too Big One? Oh. have. You ever been hunting in your life.

Honestly, the thing that bothers me. Is. There's gotta be some kind of inner workings as to why Jacobs was chosen. Because he has the money, or if Langworthy the Republican chair worked out a deal with them. There's just something that stinks to high heaven. How about yesterday? How about Yes to both those? With the first one. Eight for the second one. I mean. I honestly think that. SNOWFLAKE mcmurray is GONNA end up with the with the seat for like a third of what he actually I mean. He's GonNa like winning the Super Bowl what. Honestly people will see through it like they Hoke got elected. That's not going to turn out well for him I think they were you know. Naming Mary. Certainly might win a on June twenty third, he'll get blown out of the water in November. But y'all could when he he could be a congressman for six months.

Personally he talks about you've got a right to own a gun I'm going. I will represent and understand the people this district, but when you get to what he says again in his social media, he is the other side of progressive. He's wildly wildly liberal in on this. He's lying to us. I honestly think he's misrepresenting.
