"In general. So you've been in the game now for a long time. The game is totally different. The game is wide open. It's a different football game now. do you believe that. This is a long rebuild for the detroit lions. What do you believe is most important now coming up in a football sense here in this coming off season. I think there's a lot of good pieces place in detroit just from my tv observations in my gallons in georgia full notes over there. I think there's an offensive line which is vital and we know a number. Sure you've probably wrote about this monday morning. Quarterback it's everybody's running the ball now right. Everybody's getting back to running the football. I think there's a analytic of to run a ball thirty five times morning game. Now the dictates the game right but if you run at thirty five times more got like an eighty percent chance of winning the game but every every week i see the same thing in in the people i talked to around the league. There's a really focused on running in football. Watch the bears. David montgomery is back and see see. What other offenses changed to help mitchell. Trubisky there are only so many. Patrick mahomes aaron rodgers and ben rothlisberger is running around in this world. Not a lot of. I mean those guys are just another planet in my opinion and so you have to build in build something. That is a pretty good formula for success. In my opinion. Chris spielman have a good time doing the detroit lions. It looks like you will. You're happy man and You wouldn't have left a really good job that you had. If you didn't think this is a better job. i think i had. I had a great job. And i am but this is like football. Football is in my blood and It's the lions are part of me. And i wouldn't left for any other team but the detroit lions chris spielman.

"Have gearing. This can apply to society today. Yours my core belief on on this. I am a. I'm amid and encourage her. I am not discouraged. I'm not interested in discouraging people. I'm interested in encouraging people with accountability and honesty and we have to and within an organization or within society. We have to talk to people not at or over people when it's two people that's when we hear each other and then we're able to serve each other and help each other with a needs. They may have look it. Says i if if i were working for peter king and you hired me as your special assistant the first thing i would ask you on i would say pewter you need to tell me exactly what you need from me for me to do my job because your success is my success than i would say. I'm going to ask you a question. Here's here's what. I need from you or statement. Here's what i need from you to do. my job at highest level so that's my mindset. Mike take him in. That not only can work within an organization belonging to the nfl detroit. Lions for example. But i think it can work in society. I i know a can if we encourage instead of constantly this. We can have disagreements all that stuff but we don't need to talk over we can talk to. And that's that's what works in the beautiful thing is the locker room is such a microcosm or building such stuff microcosm of who we are as a people. Just bring them together man. Just bring them together. We can do it marv. Levy though it's simple but not easy have you. Will you be the type of service leader. I guess an assistant You're going to be once you can be going to be in the office every day. You're going to be practice every day. What's going to be your level of presence. So i'm almost insulted that you're asking me. I guess the office every day at seven i am. I'm going to serve the organization in a lot of ways. You know. I wanna i wanna be out in the community on what i want to help. In in with with the marketing with digital media. I have experienced in all this. You know and my goal is to serve the organization where i can be of most use and to help. Everybody do their job better. That's my goal. That's my only purpose that is it. I'm not there to sit in an office in breakdown film twenty four hours a day football once. You know. It's really not that hard the nfl okay. You got a quarterback you got a chance. It's a match we got. We got a slot receiver on a on a slow safety or linebacker. There's no way he's going to cover certain three were going there. It's it's not that difficult. We've got an offensive guard Six inches is butts further than elephants attack. When the center. He's pulling the ball's gotta go that way unless they got little trick up there. So i mean football's not debt hard simple but not easy right so i wanna say in those guys know that people you know that you get out of the way and let them do their job and say if you need something here. It is okay but i am. I am a sponge. I don't want to learn okay. How's business i work. I'm gonna sit with mike Explain his captain to me. I know it's going down how we make it work. I wanna know. Tell me your why that that kind of thing. I want to be involved not for my ego to serve my so i can serve the lions in a bigger and better way in all areas of the detroit. Lions makes sense makes sense. Yeah it does make sense to other things just about your team do you. You know you last played for the lions in nineteen ninety five. So it's been twenty five years. Did you ever really think the this day would come. This time would come where you would one day work in a you know important role with this team that you love so much when you play no and neither did. I think i'd ever lived through a pandemic what we are. Twenty twenty so creepy examined right and this is something that i share as a father in. It's all about our response and when change comes either embrace it enter the conveniences and inconvenience inconvenience of it or sit down and say oh my gosh changes coming what i do on done now now. It's all about the response that you have to control the outcome by your response in response with enthusiasm in embracing challenges as opposed to cowering challenges. Yeah but no. I never thought i no because i thought i did a decent job at fox in. I worked very hard and i loved fox. I love all the people you know. Those folks are great folks and and and But i learned so much about teamwork and in a tv with between the producer and a director and all the camera guys tape guys in between play by play when networks and you know booth that works you know booth. That doesn't work when that works. It's the same formula. Every body acerbity can be at their best by lifting everybody up there lifting you up so you have one grape products every single week. What's your gut feeling about matthew. Stafford's future in detroit. I probably I'll say this about matthew. He is he is a very very talented guy in his tough sob man. I came home from us. The bengals cowboys game. I caught the second half on tv. And i saw where kenneth clarke oldham up in matthew hurt the left side of his ribcage cartilage goes into the locker room comes out the locker room showers world. Not what he wants so matthews this type of guy in my opinion. This is just my matthews guy. That would the team ahead of himself because he had to make a decision. I can go in there and try to gut it out but of our team the best chance of i'm playing at fifty percent or does one hundred percent chase daniel. The best chance. That's what i know about matthew stafford but is that a decision that you believe. The new general manager and coach should make or should that decision be made in concert with you. rod would And sheila while i go to back to hire head coach and general manager for reason.

"Re years. I've heard these suggestions. Jeez the lions ought to bring bags. Spielman the lines ought to bring back berry. They need to bring their history back in into the organization. I think the ethos that chris spielman would bring back is fantastic. But he'd have to. He would have to really do something you know to. To sort of make this franchise sort of grab it by the neck insertive. Wake it up. So i wonder tell me the story of how this came to be. And maybe you're going to be able to be a difference maker generation after your career finished so on. I log on like because of life experiences. In where i wasn't in my life we know and understand. I had these opportunities before. But you know. I was at a single data time with four young kids into just want right. I think As you know amana faith. God bless me that we still be in football with tv and still be home The necessary time for the kids so the timing wasn't right so i got a call a couple of weeks ago from from ron would the president in the lions in. He asked me if i would be interested in. I said well sure. I'm always interested in listening to people and Talk about me. Would i be interested in the jim rome. I said well. I'm not qualified to be. Gm net would be a disservice to you. I said i know a lot of things. And i know a lot of people but He said fine. Okay ended up. I was driving chicago to do the lions ironically enough. The lions bears game. He called me back and kind of talked like a global ambassador thing for the lines. And i said well that interests me Then we kind of nailed down to special assistant to the president and owner of the detroit lions and so what that involves. Peter is that i want to be involved in in helping them higher coach in general manager. And here's what i can bring that cable. I've been around football on you know. My father was a high school football coach. I've been around football my entire life. I've cultivated relationships my entire life for the last thirty years on. I've been in and out of organizations and i know what works and what doesn't work. I know what people can sustain and what people can't sustain. I know there's a difference between the nfl fifteen years ago in the nfl now. I've been fortunate who i think. Obviously i'm biased. But i think my brother's record speaks for itself. I've been in the bows in your brother. Rick is general manager of the of the vikings are invite away. That's an interesting. It's going to happen now. The lions and the vikings even hearses. you'll started. She's drinking by those smoking mighty started back up but anyway But i said look. Here's what i know. I'm smart enough. If i don't have an answer i ask very smart. People that have had success in this business. What's the iranian because of the relationships that i've built over a playing career in a broadcast career in actually being around in understanding how the inner workings i kind of have an idea of the direction that we want to go. So i asked sheila what her direction is and she is very committed in once it so bad for the city the.

"Hopefully not as long as as you know what we hope but at this at the same time it is what it is and i think lending a helping hand in and just trying to you know. Be there for people at all times. We're gonna finish with one more. Football question in nat is as you look at the landscape guys as we sit here one twenty two year last twenty three games and it's hard to imagine based on what we saw last year new guys could actually be abandoning this year than you were as you certain now that you've clinched it whether you end up being i there you know having the by and being the top seed how you think. Your team is better this year than it was last year. I think we're more focused and it started off earlier. I think last year around week ten we started to really own thinking it might have been ten. I think it was around nine or ten where we really started focusing on on. what what. What's the goal here you know are. Are we doing what we have to do. In this year it was just likely hit the ground running. Everybody was extremely focused and determined and And that's that includes coaching. And everything is just kind of been smooth sailing sense since. The season started in terms of football and We're just kind of run with it at this point and i honestly think that just the focus of this team that determination for like four full-quarter's not just the a half year and a half there or separated. It's four four quarters of focus football in the in the guy's playing their tail which other as he as we sit here right now. The much of a gut feeling will you end the near Leading receivers in receiving yards is something that in the last two weeks you're going to be looking to do. Is it something. That is a goal of yours as we get deep into the season. I'd never even thought that. I would be in a situation like this At the top of the receiving charts. kinda focused just on the tight end position in trying to set goals for myself in that position itself In it's definitely cool to be a part of at this point but i'm not really thinking too much about it. I'm trying to get one more winner. Get two more wins here. One at a time in go go up against landed this week get a win and and try and solidify their bye. Week traumas kelsey. Really appreciate you. Joining me on the podcast. Congratulations on your walter. Payton nominee nomination and good luck down the stretch with a great kansas city chiefs team. You know go chiefs they fabulous and now my conversation with chris. Spielman the new special assistant to the owner of the detroit. Lions back in the podcast. So happy to be joined. This week by chris spielman Who has just taken a job in the past few days as a special assistant with the detroit lions. And we're going to have to get into what exactly that means. Because i know. Chris spielman pretty well and i know he likes precision. I know he doesn't like to have things cloudy. Likes to have things crystal clear. But anyway chris So happy for you in your life and happy you could join me congrats. Thanks peter. it's always a pleasure. You know the respect that i've had for you over the years in the relationship that we've had is It's mutual so. I'm happy to be your good. Hey so for those who only know you may be younger. People who know that you played in the nfl. But don't really know all that much about you as a person or maybe the kind of player that you were. I do wanna tell just one very quick story and that is Actually i'm going to tell two very quick stories. The first one is one time. I wanted to do something for sports illustrated with chris spielman when he was a linebacker for the lions so i approached the pr guy for the lions bill. Keenest a friend of mine and i said. Hey bill i would love to do something with chris where maybe i would watch tapes. You know at home one night during the week just to see how studies his opponent how he learns about his opponent and you denied my request and then i saw you right after that and you said my life is not the f. ing nfl. Today i do believe those were your exact or i don't use that language very often anymore but yes somewhat accurate. Yes and there's one other story that i always thought really says a lot about you and this story is from the last season that the detroit lions won a playoff game in the nineteen ninety one season. The lions beat dallas in the divisional playoff game that year and look next year your first full season with the detroit lions. You hate to say it. But it's going to be the thirtieth anniversary of the last playoff victory of this franchise which just seems totally absurd. But anyway you beat dallas in the divisional round and you go to washington the next week and washington mops the floor with you guys. It's forty one to ten with two minutes to go and with two minutes to go. Jeff rutledge. I think it was but one of the washington. Quarterbacks just started kneeling. i'm all you know and you said something that i would like you. If you have to clean it up a little bit please do but do you remember that moment and what you said to. The washington team across the line was unknown lines of this. Well i felt like it was more embarrassing that they're take any knee as opposed to trying to punch another one in you know. Keep coming in. Since they wouldn't they kept taking to me. You know. i kept doing timeout. And everybody a note. Both those are screaming and yelling at me. And i said i won't do it again. It come up after the timeout. So i think i looked over and scream coach. Gibbs run the ball. Let's go you know to me. I don't want anybody kneeling. If you're going to beat me try to beat me to the end of the end of the gun in its. You've got to quit. Fifty iran puts fifty on my rim. But we're gonna find out to play the end so that was my mindset Certainly that's quite accurate. Chris i think when i have heard over the.

"Two walter payton. Nfl man of the year. Nominees you or two one this year in kansas city. And i think one of the reasons why i wanted to talk to you especially in a week like this is that you have really impacted the kansas city community and a your hometown in cleveland heights. Ohio and i just want you to explain if you can you know you have basically a really cool idea with your Your entity seven and running foundation. Because what happens. I'm very bullish on this. I think it's so cool. That a lot of kids who go to schools eatery disadvantage schools or in school systems. That don't have the money that other school systems have. They are not able to get the resources in areas like not only in athletics but in in stem and in other parts of the school system. So i wanna know what motivated you to get as involved as new are particularly when it comes to education of young kids. I'll start off by saying. I grew up a very fortunate. I grew up in a community. Cleveland heights that is it's very multicultural. Very has has a lot of different ethnicities as well as social class and I got understanding of what life was for a lot of people and what that did was it made me understand that you know when you lend a helping hand. You should do that. We just and i. My parents instilled in me and helping out the kansas city community. I mean what they give the chiefs on sundays and throughout the week and all the support all the love. I wouldn't be here without this community. So i i honestly. I felt that it was in need to start eighty seven and running my foundation and It's not just myself that that's helping these kids. It's this community. That's supporting the foundation. A management andrea aaron. That are running foundation that are really kind of tying the putting together everything to make make it all work. And then teaming up with operation breakthrough who helps out the youth throughout the city Communities and have been doing it for years upon years and when they started to really develop the extracurricular stuff in the in the facility I wanted to be a part of that. I wanted to help out. And i thought stem a robotics lab these opportunities. Just i could never even thought about having a robotics lab in my school growing up. And i i had unbelievable school and And i'm just. I'm excited for these kids to be able to have this and to be able to you know have some advantages that they wouldn't have otherwise and I'm very proud. And an honored to represent the kansas city chiefs in this light and in the water paid matter. Man of the year is always been something. That's you know they you can. You can kinda where with your chest chest out and had high. You know it's very. it's very honorable. What's so interesting about. What you've done is n. little. I never ever would look down on anybody giving money to any charitable cause. It's fantastic but basically you know you have by the end of this year you will donate it a million dollars in part you know to your local efforts but the the robotics lab interests me so much just because there's absolutely no way as you say that kids in some disadvantaged areas not only are ever going to walk into a robotics lab butter going to be able to reap the benefits. How do you know if one of these kids one of these two or three hundred kids from the schools are going to use this lab. How do you know that one of them isn't going to become an engineer. An astronaut i mean you just simply don't know what is going to turn on the light bulb in some kid's life and that's why i think focusing on this focusing on anything is great focusing on this. I think especially in a city that needs it. i've is just really cool thing and that's the best. The goal of it right there to just give kids these opportunities to grasp you know. Find love in certain things i mean. I found love in sports. Real early and That's all i ever wanted to do. But it was It was things that that i really wanted to. presented these kids in the kansas city. Community that that could change their life and give them happiness you know. Give them something to do. Give them something to latch onto. And and you know. I think what we've done with Eighty seven Robotics lab is been awesome. Eighty-seven running robotics lab has been awesome. But i think what we're doing with the ignition. Labs for the high school kids knowing operation breakthroughs only a kindergarten through eighth grade. They needed An area for these high school kids to go and work on collaborative efforts And i think This ignition lab is gonna be awesome for for the highschool crowd as well and keep them focused on the things that they they desire and they love and they want to be a part of. I think one of the things. Also that That you've done. Is you focused. A little bit on kind of covid related causes some back in your hometown. Why have you wanted to do something in some things. Covid related Especially for families who are struggling right now. I just kind of explained that you know when you're able to lend a helping hand. I just have the each to do and it just it is what it is and i knew that my community is something that very dear to my heart. Dear to myself the the entire cleveland community. That is something that i cherish being from the two one six a lot in With that being said. I knew that that you know quarantining and everything. That's going on kobe. It's gonna be a struggle for a lot of people in and it's going to hurt him for quite a bit a time..

"I can't speak to what's harder as a mind but you know clearly do case he'd had enough saw enough and said yeah. This guy is not gonna work out for us and it stinks. But i don't think they should make the franchise. Raggedy is hell especially with. His kid had ample opportunity to shine like his brothers. Did in college in high school can chose to take the path of stealing. I don't really know what to say about that. Except for lavar. Ball's lavar ball and he's gonna talk and he's really just full of hot air so fair so i think we should end on the detroit. Lions chris spielman is a fan favourite. He's back to the organization as a special assistant to the owner. Is this the thing that matters which it shows that they're actually trying whether they're going to hoodwink the fans whether they're actually serious shows. They're trying to get some engagement. They're trying to get some people who were fan favorites of the team who actually like really cared. Invested their time in blood sweat into the rosser no matter when they play. They're trying to get people like to be pumped up and like it could be a good thing. It could actually have some power. It could. Just be a figurehead. Who's like i'm here for something. But they don't really do anything could be great could be bad. We'll have to look in time and see the thing that's really encouraging for me. While the lions lose the green bay packers these last two games. They looked at different. They look like they're trying a lot harder. They look like they're doing something different. Yeah some teams do that when you get a new coach but like it's encouraging to see yell they might not win any more games this season. Like at least they're going. They're not going down without fighting. They're trying to like get better. And i can live without any fan. Just wants to see people try. That's it if they don't win these people try the problem with me which would really bothering me with the lions. Before in fact they were not trying. They were just giving up and saying well. We're down or something. Let's hope quarterback and bail us out or whatever if it doesn't work it doesn't work they were trying to actually put the game away and just could not against a great performance from aaron rodgers. Well no one expects miracle on brush street but progress is a good thing right. Definitely well fletcher sharp. Thank you so much for all of this. You can follow him on twitter at saint.

I've seen his kids where there when they were at a national championship game where they're Ohio State shirts when they were young and everything like that, But he didn't He never ventured that way. So It made me wondered, but now I don't wonder. I know. I know exactly. It's always interesting how you position yourself like you know, over the years, Chris Spielman, You know he's done a number of games. I don't know how many times Chris Spielman's been out there and said, like, you know, Look, I don't get involved in a like we know that he loves Ohio State, and we know that time she's gonna show those biases. You know, he even says that we know that he does it. With the lions. I mean, he out, right? You know, he's calling my over there. And but you know, that's the thing. When when you put yourself out there like now, you know, that's not me. And and then you do it twice. You know you're sitting there. His reputation takes a hit now. Uh, I think for Michigan fans, there was a lot of them already, like, Okay, you know, looking at him kind of sideways. You just wonder nationally. If there's people like you know, it's his Kirk Herbstreit. Kind of is that kind of a phony is clear. Curb street fight. This guy's one more awards and everybody you know you got an award this year stand up. They're tearing down and crying because it's of awards as awards. Everybody's like you know what? You know, This guy's a true professional. That was unprofessional. A true professional being completely unprofessional. We solve all volume. The two extremes there. Right, 7349 and 18 50 Sorry. Eat, but, Hey, I got you on what's up Eric from South Carolina. What's going on, brother. All right. You know, we just make it having a good time. Got a little got a little free time, Uh, to talk basketball, you know, and current Herb Street. Well, you know. I was just his apology. But you know, and that's a conversation he had been in a living room with his buddies. You know, I think that's fine and good for him to make that kind of joke. But when you have your credibility, and you're on the stage is drawing even if what Michigan did was true unless you had absolute proof that that's what we were doing. You should never come out of your mouth and say something like that. Because, you know, I mean, he know how Michigan fans, are He? No. We are not gonna take this kind of crap. Land down. He know what kind of former players You know, the players that we have on the team now may not have known knowing the success that you know Paris teens has had against Ohio State, but he know we are very proud institution of very proud..

It was therapy. He had to, he had to come out and tell everybody. This is what I did. It was wrong and I'm sorry about doing it and it was almost like, Catharsis you know it's just cleansed him and he said I gotta go back to relaxing and having fun and see him smile and making plays on my. Aj's is on way back because. His his facial expressions, his body language were all Sullen Sullen. For five weeks and it was capped off by him. You know that portrait of him forever you know sitting on that bench against Baltimore people trying to read his lips about you know just trade me or whatever. I mean that that was that was the final after what he said was a loaf play on the interception. F. He crashed he crashed, and now he's on the way back into see him smile. And make in place here comes Aj, the the the play that is in the crosshairs for most, and we'll ask Chris spielman about it later in the show when he joins us because he had the call the TV and he was perplexed by a third and one Sumaya p Ryan fullback dive what did you make of that? Yeah they motion of another back trying to get to cute I. Think I mean I can understand the quick hitter part of it But? Was I was I was upset third in what we throwing the football for me and the offensive line was coming off the ball. That's the key point was coming off the football I mean first quarter wouldn't have been any hesitation third one day impounded. They are controlling the line of scrimmage. Now it's now they're starting to get a little hesitant. You know they they tried to stay balanced they they ran a thirty two times through at thirty nine. That's pretty good balance. But the running game you take out boy twenty, five, yard reverse I mean you're talking about thirty one carries for seventy three yards two point three five as opposed to three point one, which is not the right home but anyway, but a gadget play you know makes it look? At least respectable, but they didn't they didn't sustain. You know what they had gone in the in the first quarter, and then at that point now you start to think, okay what can we do to try to trick them a little bit or do something unexpected? We run this yet we haven't shown this on tape all year I hope they never show it on tape again. You're right I mean. To think they ran. I. Three plays of the game were running place for seventeen yards. They went three for seventeen. That means the rest of the way was fifteen carries for thirty seven yards the rest of the game. Crazy. Crazy and are you ready for this lineup?.

"Now, look that's practically nothing, and obviously we know I call this the Mike silver trade because I was in Los Angeles on Sunday. The Rams Packers game. I went to the Rams locker room every port it out of their Mike went to Green Bay saag room. I think he ended up showing up in the Rams locker room later on. But I had left and Mike found out some great stuff about how the team in Green Bay was really upset with time Montgomery for taking the ball out of the end zone. Fumbling and not giving Aaron Rodgers chance to drive in the last two. Minutes in that incredibly beautiful setting at the LA Coliseum on a beautiful summer day, really with a huge crowd of seventy five thousand people. They didn't give Aaron Rodgers the chance to have one more shot at victory. Saudi time on Gumri goes it was going to be hard for him to go back to the Packers especially because they have two running backs who passed them on the depth chart. So obviously the. You know, the the the ravens now with buck gallon with Alex Collins with Thai Montgomery, they don't exactly have an embarrassment of riches, but they're gonna have three productive backs down the stretch. And the ravens think they have a really good chance to steal the AFC north. So the last two deals are the ones that are most significant to me, I love the Rams getting Dante Fowler junior. You know, why he's a pass rusher who failed to really reach his potential in Jacksonville. They decided not to exercise fifth year option after him being a high first round pick in two thousand fifteen so he was going to be gone at the end of this year and Jacksonville gets third round pick in nineteen a fifth round pick and twenty and the Rams think they get hugely motivated outside pass rusher. The one thing they were missing. On this defense. So I like this move for the Rams now finally ha ha Clinton Dix goes from the Packers to Washington for two thousand nineteen fourth round pick. You know, this is almost a Green Bay waving a white flag to some degree. But I understand why they did it because Clinton Dix was not going to be on the team next year. And so you get amid round pick farm Brian Gouda Kunst, the new general manager is much more aggressive about trades than its predecessor Ted. Thompson was so I understand why he did this that sort of a rundown of the ten trades and the one other thing I would say is very simply this. I love the fact that the trading deadline in the NFL is now a thing. I think it is utterly fantastic. Thanks to my guest. Joe Thomas and Chris Spielman few enjoyed these conversations be sure to listen and subscribe to other great episodes in my podcast series, such as my conversations with Adam Schefter, Roger Goodell..

"They haven't been. I'm not sure Dorsey, and we're on the same page. You think the Browns did the right thing by whacking Hugh Jackson right now. I think now I think you send a message to everybody that, you know, this incompetence and not not incumbents is a person just, you know, you're not. Inning games. And we have to win in the NFL and not only do they let Hugo, of course. But they let Todd Haley go. And again, it's the same thing you got two guys and egos are fighting during the middle of season of who's doing what and point fingers and blame it, and you have nobody rowing together being together in the same team thinking the same things. And if they're not doing that, then you have to let them go, and you're going to start fresh, and I do think there's a lot of good candidates out there that they can explore look at. So obviously everybody saw. Hugh Jackson Todd. Haley, other coaches sort of bitching at each other during hard knocks is that a big deal to you care about this stuff. I think it was overblown a little bit. But I do think it was a precursor of things to come at the time. I thought it was overblown because there's a lot of times when there's healthy debate amongst coaches and coordinators, but eventually the coordinator has to do with Todd said you're the head coach I'm going to do what you wanna do. But here's what I feel and head coach says, I appreciate that. When you're the head coach you can make that decision. Chris why should Browns fans have any faith that they're going to pick the right coach after this season? 'cause you well, you have to have faith John Dorsey. I think you're having a guy that's a football guy that that understands and works with a lot of great coaches over the years, and you gotta understand that he's going to put a coach in there. That he feels is best for the organization and also guy that's going to be able to be on the same page in understand what the plan is to build a team understand that the coach would want these tape players to build a team that the GM go get those type of players and you work as a team. So that's what I would put faith in. So you work pro football. And you have were college football. You know, everything about Ohio State. You follow both games college. And pro so I wanna ask you your total gut feeling right now if you could pick a guy out there right now, college or pro from all the coaches you've seen right now. Is there a guy who you think could do a good job trying to put these Browns back together again. Well, I think there's two ways to go. So one of the things is what's the hot offense? Now. It'd be the Kansas City Chiefs, right or you can look at it. Sean McVay offense, very similar in a lot of ways. So Matt Nagy's having success now with Chicago Bears whose Andy Reid disciple. So you can go that way somebody that understands conceptually with the chiefs don't or what the bears are doing authencity. If you want that guy or you can go the veteran, a guy that's been out there guy that is kind of quite frankly, I think of campaigned for the job is Bruce Arians. I've had a chance to sit in meetings with Bruce. I had a chance to watch him coach on the field. I think he gets along with his players. I think he's challenges his players. And if I were looking for veteran, I would say be a would be a guy that I would strongly consider. Well, he is in his mid sixties. Chris is he too old. I don't think so not now not nowadays. I think there's a lot of energy with guys. And I I know he's had some health issues in the past..

"Back on the Peter King podcast really happy to be joined by Chris Spielman. Why think is one of the most interesting people I have ever covered in thirty four years of the NFL. He was so intense that one time I wanted to do a story of his life in football and see what he really went through to prepare for a game when I worked at Sports Illustrated, and Chris who was at the time. A hugely intense linebacker for the Detroit Lions when I proposed this idea to him to sort of hang around with him as he prepared for a game. He looked up at me. And he goes, I don't remember if it was through gritted teeth, but I think he was a little bit. I don't know a put off by the question. He said my life is not the frigging NFL today. I got a great kick out of that. And I always respect the passion of guys, and I've always really really respected the passion of Chris Spielman. So Chris thank you so much for joining me. I'm gonna jump right into this. And just ask you your now, a talk show host in Ohio. You you grew up in northeast, Ohio. You grew up basically in the shadow of the pro football hall of fame. Now, you do NFL games for FOX. So you're round the game. And I wanna know this. Why did Hugh Jackson fail? I think they're couple reasons you can't one is not that he didn't have the opportunity in years to fix it. But if I sit back and look at it, there's a lack of stability within the organization. Alexa stability in front office. There was constant changes. And you take a look at Hugh Jackson and. What they were trying to do when you're not working hand in hand with the front office in there's constant stress and pressure. It's never going to work. I think the other thing is the obvious answer. Is there was never stability at the quarterback position. I do believe now that they have that stability with Baker Mayfield. But didn't Hugh Jackson know what he was getting into. Yeah. But my point is they weren't getting along. Whether they went whether it was everybody was Coon by yacht. I an all in. But as as the process went on they started infighting and pointing fingers at each other. So what organization when you have everybody pointing fingers at each other on the inside is ever going to be successful. It's not they're not on the same page in..

"Right thing by getting rid of Hugh right now, I think there was some internal struggle that seems to have been going on between Hugh, and maybe some of the other coaches specifically Todd Haley. And that drama, and that internal discord as we heard from Jimmy has them was really apparently getting to everybody in that building. And I think it was expecting the preparation was acting the way that the players were playing, and they were very very sensitive to not retard the growth process of Baker Mayfield. They're really concerned that the drama that was going on with the coaches was going to have an effect on the growth in the maturation process of Baker Mayfield. So they felt like the situation needed to be dealt with right now before it potentially got any worse. So I'll ask you this maybe using a little bit of hindsight was Todd Haley the wrong choice as offense coordinator. I can't really say the Todd. Haley was definitely the wrong choice as an offensive coordinator. I think it was great for Hugh to be hiring offense coordinator, if we believe some of the things that Hugh said about him going out on his own and wanting to hire Todd Haley to give him help and let him guide. The offense. Clearly, it didn't work out. So it's easy to say in hindsight that he was the wrong choice. But at the time Todd Haley is a very successful offense coordinator, he's had a lot of success at different places. He's been he's proven to be a very good coach and office coordinator, and sometimes the fit just doesn't right? And you don't really realize that intil you're in that situation. And clearly you can say now that the fit wasn't right. So with the benefit of hindsight, I'm gonna say that Todd. Haley was the wrong choices the offensive coordinator. So Joe, I know how much you know, about what's going on inside of this organization. You've only been away now for ten months. What do you know that the rest of us should know about this firing about the organization right now? And you know, I don't mean to lead you in any direction, but. I also love to hear your thoughts about John Dorsey as general manager. It's easy to say that this is the same old Browns. They're starting over there hitting the reset button. But I think this is much different because we've had John Dorsey now leading this organization for almost a year. He's a guy that's got a proven track record..

"I want you to look at one of the teams that was involved in two of the trades in the last week or so and that's Bob Quinn. The aggressive general manager of the Detroit Lions first of all he traded a fifth round pick in two thousand nineteen to the giants and picked up Damon Harrison snacks Harrison, the excellent run stuffing defensive tackle. And he already paid dividends against Seattle on Sunday. And then again on Tuesday of this week, a trade that I think the eagles really got the better of the eagles traded a third round pick in two thousand nineteen for golden Tate. I am a big big. Golden Tate, backer. I think Philadelphia will get a lot of production out of him. But anyway, the point is Bob Quinn lions general manager, he likes making trades. Howie Roseman of the eagles likes making trades. Brian Gouda Kunst of the Green Bay Packers. He likes making trades traded time on Gumri and ha ha Clinton Dix on Tuesday. I guess my point overall is that I think that the game in the last few years has become more of a what have you done for me? Lately. Let's win this year kind of game. General managers are not the arch conservative right-wingers that they were ten fifteen twenty years ago. When I first started covering the game. Nobody traded at the deadline, and they were very rarely any good trades. And now this year, obviously ten. Been in the last half of October as teams gear up for the second half of the season. So I'm gonna come back a little bit later in the podcast to tell you about what I think of all these trades individually to sort of break them down to give you my winners and losers. But before we do that I wanna get to the other very big news of the week. Obviously saw that the Cleveland Browns on Monday fired their head coach hue Jackson who had been given some assurance in the off season. Don't were you got this year, and he actually only add half of this year. And not only did they fire Jackson, but they also fired the his offense coordinator Todd Haley, and I think there is a message in that from the owner of the Browns Jimmy has them and from the general manager of the Browns John Dorsey in the message is very very. People. Listen, we're not gonna have discord here. We're all going to be pulling in the same direction. And I think the rift between Jackson Haley, these guys are definitely not going to be on each other's Christmas card lists. And I think the rift between them Dorsey and has lem both felt was affecting the product on the field. So has lem instead of as he had indicated instead of giving huge Jackson three full years. He gives them two and a half. And you know, I hate to see Cleveland continually in this sort of cauldron of change. But it's hard to argue when hard to argue with has them when the team is under Hugh Jackson is three thirty six and one. And basically you look at that kind of record. And you say why should we keep this guy in a specially if? He is at odds with members of his staff. So that's that's sort of the Cliff's notes version of why the Browns did what they did this week. But you're gonna enjoy hearing from Joe Thomas, the former left tackle of the Browns and one of the smartest analysts a native of Ohio. And and a very very good football player. Chris Spielman now working for FOX you're gonna love to hear their thoughts on all things Browns..

"Let's tell you exactly what we've got in store other than the breakdown of all five trades in the last three hour. Hours of the trading deadline in two thousand eighteen we're gonna talk to Joe Thomas, the likely future hall of fame left tackle, the Cleveland Browns to talk to them about up evil in Brown's land Thomas now one of the co hosts of the Tomahawk show by uninterrupted a podcast. He does with Andrew Hawkins also a former Brown and also happy to be joined by Chris Spielman of voice in the NFL that I have always respected. He does a talk show for Fox Sports radio and Columbus, Ohio. And of course, you see him as an analyst for FOX television doing Sunday NFL games. But I I'm going to go over a couple of my impressions from the trading deadline which happened this week on Tuesday. And first of all I want to go over just a little bit about why the trading deadline right now has become more significant than it has been in the past in two thousand twelve the NFL passed a ruling that said we're gonna move the trading deadline from at the Tuesday after week six to the Tuesday after week eight so we've just finished week eight. And the reason why this is so significant is this. So the Denver Broncos were three and four after seven weeks, and they were teetering on the edge of wandering what they should do after just beating the tar out of the Arizona Cardinals in week seven. So I think John Elway GM the Broncos is thinking, well, listen, if we can go to Kansas City on Sunday and beat the Kansas City Chiefs, somehow some way, we're going. To be in. This thing will be at five hundred with a games left, and we're going for it. But obviously they lost at Kansas City sitting at three and five they decided that listen we are better off playing for the future than for the present. And so they decided to trade to marry his Thomas to the Houston Texans. They get two thousand nineteen fourth round pick. And then the two teams will swap out seventh round picks, which is a way to try to equalize the trade, but it's always fairly meaningless. But I think the point there was made two weeks ago. This trade probably would not have been made first of all Houston would not have needed Demeri as Thomas after week six because will fuller the promising wide receiver would not have gone down with a knee injury by then, but he goes down with a knee injury on Thursday and. Week eight and all of a sudden Bill O'Brien Brian gain the general manager of the Texans. They say let's go try to find us a wide receiver. So a it helps moving the trade deadline bag be. I also think it really helps the fact that NFL teams can now trade draft choices that are going to be given to them as compensatory picks for years. The NFL did not allow teams to trade compensatory picks. And if you look at the trades that happened there were ten altogether in October that NFL teams that it's not teams trading a compensatory picks. But it's teams understanding that if we have the luxury of having extra picks we're going to be able to be freer to trade those picks. And if there comes a time where we have to trade compensatory picks were okay. Okay with that. But I think the freedom to know that you're able to do that gives teams like even though New England didn't do it this year. Oh, they will do it. Because Bill Belichick never met a trade. He didn't like he's like the modern Jimmy Johnson. He loves making deals, and I believe the patriots tried hard. Whether it'd be for a pass rusher a corner a wide receiver. I think they they really looked hard around the league. Whether it'd be a pass rusher with Shane Ray or Dante Fowler junior. Or cornerback generous Jenkins with the giants are even Damaris Thomas. You know, obviously got got moved to Houston, Josh mcdaniels the offensive coordinator, very familiar Damari Thomas from his days in Denver. But I think the point that needs to be made here is that teams. I think are much more aggressive. Than they have been in the past the final point. I will say is that I think that one of the reasons why teams have been very very aggressive is that general managers are much more aggressive..
