I wouldn't expect anything, but they're from New Year's best. I'm nowhere near as grabbed me, bro. Hey, I'll tell you what this is the the big. What is it? White whale is what they call it the great white buffalo. This is the guests that was impossible to book. Now, I got you on here. And I'm so excited to chat. Not impossible. The you're busy, man. You're a busy, man. These days your life went from being a head coach for the Indianapolis Colts. Obviously business in everything happens in the NFL you separate from there. You had the year off where in your press conference with the bears. You were talking about basically, you're just driving your beautiful bride. Crazy is that correct? That's it. That's yeah. It was really like I said it was really dicey. The first month and a half, you know, trying to adapt back into her life. And she wasn't having any of it. You know, I was, you know, asking her things that it was asking the systems at the deal, you know, at the office is that and the other and she finally just today time out time out, I have a life. I've always had a life. I have a routine whether you believe it or not. So you need to chill out is what you need to do it. And we need to figure something out of this ain't gonna work. She's like, listen coaching guy. All right. You're normally at the office and fourteen fifteen hours a day. I don't need to deal with your bullshit right now. Now that you're out of work right now is that correct? Basically, you know, like you get we get up early. So you're up early. Do your coffee, you know, get your workout in maybe two maybe three do some honeydews. Do the chores around the house empty, the dishwasher, do some laundry run something, you know, run a few errands. And it's only noon, I'm trying to figure out what the heck am I gonna do till because we're there till ten eleven twelve at night. We said what's the rest of this day? Look like, and that's where it got a little dicey. What did you do you've been in coaching for so long? So so long I think we goes back like thirty years, I believe you've just been coaching and grinding you find your way at the mountain top being a head coach in the NFL. Then you sever what did you do with your time there when you weren't doing your honeydews you worked with the NFL? My correct. Yeah. Yeah. I did some consulting, you know, with the with the officials up there. So that was kinda my football fix, Pat. Couple days a week. I did that, you know, but thirty three years and then having no team first time in thirty three years, and you know, after playing, you know, high school and college in the National Football League for as long as you did there's always that when you're done or you don't have a team. You know, I understand now why guys get sideways, and you know, veteran players who played for so long, and they don't think it's ever gonna end. But I didn't have a team in. Oh, my family didn't have a team my wife my daughters. My granddaughter we had nobody root for and so that was a little bit different. But anyway, you know, like, I talked about in the presser, and I've I've said all along the three RS reset recharge, you know, and reflect so the beauty of it was I got to do a ton of things, you know, with my family that I've missed over the years, you know. They sacrifice way more than than we sacrifice because you missed so much, especially my, you know, my my girls growing up and and Tina did a phenomenal job of raising them and basically raised them by themselves. So I got a ton of family time in like, I mentioned, you know, during my my bout with cancer and to twelve in one of my the vision, I was living. I was going to walk through more daughters down the aisle and and dance at their, weddings. So my youngest Tory got married I walked her down the aisle, and you know, I had my sweet fair gone on. And I was. I was a, you know, I was dancing like a MO fat. I was getting it. Now, I I in my head. I I thought if you dancing at that wedding. And I thought if your daughter just like this was the moment that my dad was was fighting for in you on a dance floor. I mean, you get loose out there with those old Italian as feet. You know, I can moonwalk with the best Robbie is good or better maybe than the great Michael Jackson. You know? But anyway, so did that stuff. Check some bucket list stuff. You know, went to Costa Rico at Tina went to the masters the wedding. Like, I mentioned, you know. So did a lot of lot of fun things. Played a lot of golf a lot of family time. So again, it was it was it was a great time to just like I said just recharge worked out a ton. You know, I love that peleton by an I talked about that. Right. Let's go. Let's get on. Here said you were doing who rides a day where are you trying to fucking kill yourself out there? You said you were doing to leads a day. Well, well, you know, you there's a lot of time in the day, you know, until when you have a lot of time on your hands, and you're trying to figure out what to do next. You just go back downstairs and hop on the bike again. Okay. So was there ever a time during all of that where you thought your coaching days, we're done were you like whenever you and the colts separated. Was there a time or any thought at all that you know, what I might be done coaching forever. Did you know that you are gonna come back into it, regardless? No, I'm at right at that moment. There was nothing that I wanted to do other than just get away from it. You know that you know that first week two weeks. But after you know, I always knew I wanna come back. It didn't care what it was. I didn't need to be at coach. I just wanted to coach football. And I wanted to get back on the field, and in and be with the coaches and be with the players and in the grind in competition and the comp-. Pete. And you know, there's nothing like, you know, game day in those three hours and five minutes in and then those moments that we shared, you know, after after huge wins. You know, there's that's why we sacrifice everything. So I knew I always wanted to be back initially. You know, you say, well, we'll see, you know. But it didn't take long being away from Pat that you know, that I knew that I missed it. Missed dearly wanted to get back. Yeah. You're a football guy football lifer. And I asked you last week on the phone off air. I said what is it going to be like not being the head guy anymore in your press conference? You you alluded to how it's Nagy's team and everything like that. But you told me that you just miss coaching because as a head did you feel as a head guy, you couldn't coach as much because you kind of had to handle everything else that was happening, and you hired coaches to coach does that something you missed whenever you were being ahead guy. Yeah. You you get pulled in so many different directions. You know sitting in that seat. You know, and you, you know, never experienced that before indie. You don't realize it in on going to the owners meetings for the first time after I was hired in any in to twelve and, you know, not one, but you know, almost every single coach, you know, that was their head coaches that have been through it already. They all said don't get away from coaching is as hard as that. That may seem you gotta stay, but you get pulled in so many different directions. And that's the one thing that, you know, being assistant for twenty eight years before I got the opportunity in Indianapolis that, you know, you you just 'cause you soon as you get into a meeting room, Pat, you know, there's you've been five minutes knock on the door. And you know, somebody's asking about you know, this that and the other. So you you do get cold, you know, a lot of different directions. And and but you do miss the the hands on. There was a lot of times, especially you know, when it stuff coming across your desk that you don't even want to look at you. Don't even want to deal with it. You just say man, I wish I would just was coaching the secondary. You know, why couldn't they just be? You know, Tom McMahon today. Good. You know, why could be the, you know, just doing my own little deal with my own guys in the room. And you know, Kotze tight ends and have three guys Jackie Doyle and Swope Bill guys. And, you know, Dwayne just, you know, just worry about those three dudes, you know. So I just again, I just you know, we love we love coach. And we love being around the players love, helping guy you grow, and and the camaraderie of the whole thing and the competition. Chuck's great. We're about to dive deep to there. There's plenty more where that man is coming from. It's it's such a fun conversation. I hate to break it up, but I have to because somebody's got to keep the lights on here in the particular company that wants to help out today is a beautiful company that I put right there on my thousand guys, you know, what I'm talking about Tommy, John if you're big Valentine's Day surprise consists of a bouquet of supermarket roses and drugstore chocolates.

And I think you've got experience that I mean, there's only thirty two head coaches in the NFL. It's a very difficult job your first stint as a head coach. You didn't know what to expect? You're you're in a new city it all kind of happens so fast. And then I think it was week five maybe week four or by week. You get told that all of a sudden, you have leukemia that you have can't. So your dream has come true your head coach. Now, you move your family do a new city, then Wham you get kind of blindsided by cancer. How did that affect you think your entire rhythm of your first head coaching year? Maybe your outlook as being a head coach on life or anything like that. How did that experience? Change you for the better or change for the worse either. Or? Yeah. You know, sitting at that desk after you accept the job, you go through, you know, the press conferences, and all the TV all that stuff that you have to do. I remember vividly sitting in coach called, you know, my office that you know, coach called Weld's old head coaching offense. And I say it was sitting at the desert, and it was just Tina nine the dusted settled we looked at each other. And you know, what do we do? Now. What are we ourselves, you know, and, you know, so he started looking through the drawers and look for head coaching manual, those no manual, you know, she just take it us take it one day at a time and you've worked, and you've watched guys knew learned along the way, and I was around so many, great coaches, and and and, you know, head coaches and mentors and things like that. But it's really no manual for it, let alone like you said, you know, we just lost that devastate head that devastating loss of Jacksonville. Blaine gabbert hit see so shorts. You know? We just took the lead twenty two seventeen whatever. And you know, he it's fifty seconds go right hits that eighty order, and we lose that game in. Oh. And then I had to had you know, the bruising and going on at sympathy. But I just thought that was football stuff. Then I do some blood work after the game. And, you know, Pat, you know, in the schedule comes out you want your by week to be somewhere, you know, middle of the season. Right. Yup. Late, you know, really life guys, you know, eight nine week ten, you know, you're you're playing well, you're winning you get some guys dinged up. And it's you know, it's it's great to have that, you know, more towards the middle of the season. And that turned out to be a blessing in disguise because I probably would have never got, you know, gone in and got checked in and got blood work. So yes, you could hit hit across the face. You know across the head with a two by four, you know, coming off that loss for one and two you're trying to navigate the waters and keep the team together. You know? So you remember we practice Tuesday Wednesday. Right. Yup. Energy everybody. Remember, remember, we took the team photo. Yup. On Wednesday yell. You had the short practice, and then all the coaches and all the players were offered four days. And that's when you know, I got some blood work done. And then they said where your came back. You know off you need to we made your point and go see on college now cyber cancer center. And you're like what you gotta be kidding me. Right. Yup. Nope. And make sure and they go make sure your wife takes you. Oh, so you go down there. What's that initial reaction right there? You scared at all. Never never scared. Okay. Never scared. His like, it's just like why me, you know, why? Now, you know, you just get your dream job opportunity of a lifetime. Now got a wife and three daughters and three granddaughters. Counting on you to you like, you know, can't be true. I never believed that foreign second toy sit in front of Dr Larry cripe. You know, said, you know, once I got down there said I'm ninety nine percent. Sure, you've got AP L, which is a form of leukemia. We're gonna do bone marrow biopsy just to make sure but. There you go. And so member Robert Mathis after the Jacksonville game. He said, you know. You know, there's no pity parties in life. There's no pity Persian football will man up come in tomorrow watch the tape and we'll move on. And we'll get better. So those words kinda resonated me with me, right? Then you know, when he told me that. And so I just said, hey, I just looked at the doctor said, what am I chance? What are the odds? What's the game plan? What do I gotta do to beat? This whole was it on that day where he said it's going to be a fight you're going to have to battle. But I think we can get you back in a couple of months, and that was when you decided right? I'm going to be backed by the end of this year is that when you made that decision. Yeah. They, you know, he's told me exactly what the, you know, induction was what I was going to go through as probably going to be in the hospital for a month. And then do some outpatient chemo for two more months. And if everything goes, according to Hoyle, you know, you you could possibly get back. You know? But then you just take you know, one day at a time. But again by you know, I was at the right place at the right time. Great doctors, great support, great care and all that stuff and the way you guys played as a team and performed. And you know, I stay connected. You know, 'cause I 'cause I had the setup head the film head the whole thing down there. So I had a distraction. You know, I had something, you know, besides my family and my daughters, my granddaughter's, but the team just watching you guys play in watching Andrew in the fourth quarter comebacks one after another after another that was my that was the best medicine that I could ever receive. Saved did knowing that that's sitting there in in watching. They inspired me. And I said, you know, one, you know, he told me what the survival rate was. And and it was high, you know, because the research that's why we do we do today. So we can help, you know, try to stamp out all blood cancers. But. But anyway, I've always had great protective, you know, and things, but you know, that really taught me, you know, we know what the expectations are with our jobs. You know, we know it's bottom line business. You win you stay. If you don't you're out, if you're a player, you produce your you stay if you if you don't you're they move on. It's pretty simple. You know? We know life's tough soon as you figure out that life stuff. It starts getting to help a lot easier. So I got great protective. We keep the perspective or coaching and playing a kid's game. And and let's don't make much out of it. Chuck strong foundation has raised millions and millions and millions of dollars for research to help. But you had to go through help others that are going through what you're going through. What was the process of the actual chemo day to day? Were you watching practice film inbetween getting chemo bouts and shit? Like that was that was that the day to day for you. And how long were you in that hospital for? Shows there twenty six days, and so right when they they did the bone marrow biopsy. I 'cause I Tina picking up where I didn't have anything with me. So I said, well, I'm gonna run home and get some clothes or whatever. Right and get my dog kit, my toiletries, and he's like, no, you can't leave. I said why don't have anything? He's that's all right. We're gonna take your wife. She'll go down to paperwork gets you admitted. You gotta go downstairs to the to the oh are and get, you know, pick line put in and then they start pumping. And then thirty minutes later, I was in a room and they were pumping antibiotics enemy steroids enemy and the chemo. I did that for for twenty six days in her and and finally got into remission. That's when they let you go home. And then I did, you know, two more months of it at home. And but the like I said, they set me up, you know, ahead of the laptop there. You know? I hate these devices. You know, in the social media deal, and all that stuff and dealing with you the players everybody, you know, tweet this tweet net and Facebook FaceTime my space. My my whatever nail, you know, Instagram, come on, you know, but thank God for technology because that's how I stay connected with the team. That's how I stay connected with you guys, you know, and they'd bring me down the hard drives from practice. They bring in and you know, hard drives from the game. And when you when I could see on the on the TV, you know, Mr. Xi, we didn't have the NFL network at the hospital when he first came down that chain. Yeah. And you got it you you got a little watch NFL football. Brother. He was he was the best. And he took such great Carol me, Pat. You know, what a good man, he is where great man in the heart that he has. I mean, he did everything for me. And he stood by me. You know, there's there's no talent in that situation with a lot of guys would do. But he, but he, but he took care of me, and he stood by me had my back. And and we didn't have the NFL network and within twenty four hours everybody in that hospital at the NFL. Such a move by her say, by the way, that's one of the best. You huge. You know, those days are are can become so so long and such a grind. And you know, all the things that you have to go through, and again mine was nothing compared to, you know, most of the people that I met, you know, that came on the in that hospital and on that foreign I've met ever since. But you know, that's what that's what got you through. So you know, when you weren't sleeping twenty hours a day because you were just you know, beat the crap from that stuff. Then then you'd spend your time doing doing the football stuff. Well, I think that's beautiful that are say did that I think he that's the type of duty. So I mean, we all know that with this being said case your first it gets off to an interesting start. You have to battle against leukemia in the middle of it. You come back. Did you have to kinda resettle yourself into being a head coach? I kind of find a re re find the rhythm of the. I few weeks air whenever you were. Because I remember when you came back. We're going into the playoffs in punt was the first thing in your coaching. Again, you're bald your your hair look terrible. Obviously that was a bad moment for you with the hair the hair, it was tough for you. I know that was very different. I don't worry too. Here wasn't coming back, by the way, you have impeccable hair. Were you worried? It wasn't coming back. Was never if that was the worst thing that would have happened, and you were healthy, then so be it. Worried about when you say impeccable. It's just good product. Bye good products. You know, well, the hair always looks. So we're going into playoff we somehow snuck into the playoffs. Right. And it's the first practice back. The Chuck is head coaching right again. It's like a beat leukemia. I thought it was going to be like this victory parade. You know, like, hey, I just beat leukemia. I came back. Nobody thought I was going to do. Punt period was the first period. And I think the first point I hit a shank or something. And you're standing right behind me. You're like, let's go. We're gonna kick the ball today or non like, hey cheer the fuck off, man. It was your rape back into like you're right back into coaching. I was like this is beautiful. Did you have to refined like the coaching rhythm? Or were you like, you know, what you couldn't wait to get back on out on the field? You know, I I wasn't like just from a physical standpoint, you know, the toll that it takes on you, you know. So just your weight your strength all that stuff. So you remember when I came back. We do you guys just beat Kansas City on the road week quench the playoff spot. We're playing Houston the next week. That was my first game back at home. Yep. You know, and I came back on Christmas Eve came meeting, you know, and yeah, it was it was hard because you guys had so much success. Be a was a rock star of all Rockstars, the staff was fricking amazing. And you know, go nine and three and those twelve weeks. Yeah. Was it was it was they asked me. What was the hardest thing that you had to deal with in six years as head coach looking back on it. And I think coming back into that building, you know, and kind of reestablishing, you know, myself as you know, a year that you. The head coach whatever is what a job that everybody did. And especially be a, you know, and and it's like get your sea legs back underneath you. So it was it was it was difficult but made easy by like Bruce entire staff and all the players. I remember, you know, Houston, you know, they member media said, you know, you're gonna play guys where are you going to rest them? Yeah. I like what I just I just went through three months of of of came. I got myself into remission, and we said from day one we signed up for sixteen games would bite. God we're gonna play every every last one of those games. It doesn't matter. What the circumstances? Are you know, and they said, well, you're gonna rest guys rest guys. Are you not know there's no frigging way? We're gonna are you kidding me? I just I wanted to do drop the mic walkout this things over we're done. So I think it was maybe asked me, maybe he wasn't area. I don't know. I love Greg Doyle anyway, the local. Writers were interesting bunch to follow along during the Chuck. They were so good to me. They will go anyway. Awesome. Hey, so where was I so member we're we win that game? And we get the ball. We're up remember daisy cream. Oh, yeah. With with the Red Sea and return that kickoff or touchdown. And then we took like two three point lead and never looked back. And then we helped we we went on a four minute drill with nightmare or nine minutes and forty seconds left in the fourth quarter. Yup. And they handed the ball Vick Ballard like all. But one time twelve play drive nine nine minutes and forty six to get on a knee. Yeah. There was a thing of beauty and won that game. And it was just like I remember just walking out there. And I almost I almost passed out. My legs were shaking. I mean 'cause 'cause of all the stuff around whatever. But anyway, yeah, that was very blessed to be back. And then we went to Baltimore. And we lost that you. Remember, what happened to be a morning the morning of the fucking game. Bruce Arians, get sick morning of our we've had this incredible year. Incredible circumstances. Situations happen. A lot of people. Like, I mean, Andrew luck is a rookie at this point with a whole new offense or head coach just beat leukemia to come back. We were a hot team at the time to which is what you need we go back to Baltimore where Chuck at just come from. You know, big moment. And then we get to the stadium and Bruce Arians is in hospital. He's sick this Bruce in the fucking. What do you mean BRUCE'S dos? But I won't be here today. I'm like, well, wait a minute. So we we ran on nother speed bump there. It was crazy. I mean, go down to breakfast. And I think just he gave I mean every ounce that he had. Yup. Right to get to that point. And he just he just fill out the wheels come off. And you know, he had this vertigo thing going on this inner ear deal, and you know, on down breakfast. And then all of a sudden ambulances pulling up, and they're taking them to the hospital, and you know, grab CLYDE cl-. You're calling the game and great great. Great. Right. Big nobody'll reps. Could that's great? We'll go. We're good. We're good. We're gonna roll. We're immigrant Brennaman pair, right? Got a couple of bucks quarterback. We'll be in a good spot. Right. Right. You like these plays right here. Yeah. Those are good. Call caller ones that get first downs in score points. I got it. Right. For those that don't know crack in longtime quarterback coaching Indianapolis coached with Peyton Manning for a long time. Then luck then he just went down to Miami. And I believe he's in Tampa back with Bruce. I'm not sure great. He's like an older back whisper though. Yeah. That guy. He's unbelievable an awesome. And so I mean to go through all like, you said we went through an end to get to that that moment. And and being Baltimore hit all sudden, you're you're play callers, you know, in the hospital, and you're you're worried like hell for his help how he's doing. And what are you doing? And what is it? You don't have any idea, you know. And and you know, she'll the get beat that day. And then you know, we had a we had a good run their man. I six six great years. I'm grateful for those six great years and the relationships that were building in the games that we want and the moments we had I mean, it was awesome. I was lucky to be a player on a team that you coach I have a couple of questions about coaching me. Yeah. So. So do you remember about out of time? We're. From the break. 'cause I got that meeting coming up short here. This'll be quick just a couple of do you remember wins? Do you remember when at the beginning of your head coaching around? I think it was after you came back from beating leukemia, maybe your second year where I would score you on your team meeting speech in the morning. Do you remember when I would do that? Yeah. What did you think of that? Did you hate it at all? I was trying to excellent excellent feedback. Really good. And it was something that, you know, jar worrying about as soon as I was done with the meeting. I gotta wonder what I get on that one. I wonder if I, you know, did I get up six on this. I get it seven. We did we inspire. Anybody today too? We book God I hope pats motivated today. So I would we would leave the team meeting in to walk to the special teams meeting where we had a team meeting every morning and then to go to the special team meeting room. He and I would have to share a hallway together all the way back to like where his room was his his office was right by with a special teams. So it was like a three minute walk every single morning after he just spoke for twenty five minutes. There's like no way in hell. I wasn't gonna be like, hey, good speeches born out of that you really delivered that one. Well, it was just like thing that just started happening, but ally tell a lot of people an incredible speak. Like, I think you could be a stand up comedian. If you wanted to you told us some stories in there that were just Menendez level. I mean next level. I think whenever you retire from football. If it's ever you should think about getting into the comedy, circuit you deliver a story like nobody else. Well, if I could do it alongside you I'd do it in a heartbeat. The me all all I would ask. No, I'm your, you know, I'm your biggest fan. Well, you're a good guy. Appreciate that one one final thing because I have to do this because it's a professional interview. You're about to be the Chicago Bears defensive coordinator. The defense is incredible. They're loaded with weapons what are you excited about going into next year? And what do you think is going to happen for the Chicago Bears? And what are you going to do to make that team better? Just being a part of this storied franchise. You know Papa bear Halas the history behind it. The ownership and mccaskey family is off the charge in coach Nagy Ryan pace, the general manager. It's you know, it's always been about people. You know that? And these guys are phenomenal built a hell of a roster. Had a great run coach is going into a second year. I love the culture, you love the city, you love the fans everything about this place. And they've always been about defense and last year was was no exception. And when you look at it, you know, you look up and down the rankings, and they were one in almost every category except a couple and those ones that they weren't they were two or three, you know, points allowed one turnovers. One third down one rushing yards one so on and on and on. So the expectations are huge. That's why we do this thing. Because we love challenges, and, you know, so my job is to is to make sure that you know, we don't we don't have a drop off and the and the pieces that that we have on this roster, and especially on the defensive side. It's a great team. But there's a ton of ton of game records, you know, and that side of the ball and his Bruce used to call them five stars. And you you got guys that can Russia passer, you know, MAC and Floyd Hicks, and you know, just just kinda kinda guy Eddie Goldman front. The back ends got playmakers. Eddie jackson. Kyle fuller amukamara. Oh treve. There's young linebacker roquan roquan Smith, and they've got depth. And so there's a there's a ton of pieces to work with and you know, my mom's always been wreaked havoc. So that's where we're going to try to do. And we're gonna blend a little bit of what they did a lot of what they did try to make it easy on them from terminology standpoint at our own little twist to it and. Premium on fundamentals technique. Do some better, right. Yup. Do the do the little things the detail things better than anybody else.

By the way, we're all banking on. Buffalo Wild Wings free wings for America. If this game goes to overtime electric is beautiful there. They are saying if the game those overtime if we get a little bit extra football everybody in America gets a free free thing a wing. It's awesome daring between lone read out small-print fine print eight tariff L, we don't need people known as just a snack size of free wings. Freeways free. What do you want? Whatever you tweet out about Nike or new era. Do you say these things were made in a sweatshop in China? Fuck. Of put out of business. Hey Darren reveal follow along with Darren reveal. But then whenever he puts on part of it. And then reads the fine print in a tweet you'd only have certain amount of characters. They don't need you put in fine print you give me one free William happy as appreciate what is free. It's free wings is the headline aimed for an overtime. Both offenses can scored anytime late Elliott game comeback is definitely possible with both teams. All you got dues neck strokes. Best Roque any of them could get hot. I I'm excited for if it gets over time though, I think we all agree with who were doing with. We all do we all agree with it? We're going with for the game. And general everybody's on the patriots watch that kind of scares me. I'm on a hard. I'm all in me metoo, especially after he started the we we're still here chain at the pep rally. That had what seemed to be two hundred thousand people out to send them to the Super Bowl. Then they hop on a plane that they bought through years ago on their own plane down there. The patriots patriots are just it seems as if Tom Brady feels younger than he's ever phoned his life. He feels healthy. He said there's zero chance zero percent chance as last game. He's definitely coming back. This just in the middle of their dynasty. They're saying and thinking and acting. It's just we're just here for himself. Wade Phillips voices to hear me out. He is a he's a he's a thief in a good way. He will take a team defense that shut down a high scoring offense and duplicate that nobody is seeing this offense patriots. Oh, no, no, no, no, no people have seen it. But I'm going back to week fifteen seventeen ten loss to. The Steelers in Pittsburgh, ten points on the board. That's all they allowed K that was before their running game is exploded. That was before. Tom Brady's knee got healthy. That was before. I think gronk was trying. I don't think anybody has been able. I mean chargers haven't cheese didn't think this offense is transformed into something that is something different than it's been all fucking year. Wade Phillips is a great defensive coordinator. But I'm not going to bet my life on him stopping Tom Brady. Philip San good. Oh, wait Phillips, look. I respect old bum Phillips respect, by the way. After hearing what Chuck said today about how hard it is being outta coaching. I don't think Bill Belichick is ever going to be done. Well, look paternal died. I don't think you'll ever be done. Bruce Arians came back. No, one can stop those guys lunatic while the coaches are like football guys. That's what they are there in the office all day every day their life revolves around breaking down film, their light for Volvo around hopefully, making a player better. That is all they care about in. No their family knows. It's so you can take a break. I guess, but Chuck was very adamant about I got a week into it. I knew that I was going to get back in. However, I could whenever I good and his wife did as well. Tina, she news. Well, I'm excited for Bowman. We're gonna have a lot of fun down there in Atlanta down air top golf with Wrangler. Buffalo Wild Wings in design net should be a blast. I sound like fucking NASCAR driver. Still got to podcast coming. This is still going to come out Tuesday and Thursday, you'll still here. But we're going to be the okayed it in hot. I'm excited to see who we get on the bug guest house your weekend you to show. Yeah. Shows were gray gray. I didn't eat. So you know, just stayed to myself and my room. My lady was pretty cool about it. So the somebody took us out to eat though, it was the the last on Sunday, and a friend down there, and you wanna take everybody out the to this fancy ass fucking fish place, and they had fucking they had wasters like seventeen different kinds of wasters lay down on the table. It was I got the seafood luau knows. Like, oh what the fuck away Bill? Eight the hell out of it shaped the hell out of straight coffee the entire time. I like that. Yeah. Took the lead you lost another three point through pounds. That's incredible. That you've been able to do that Zeno is promising. He's going to lose ten pounds this week. He's moved into second place. I don't know how he's going to do. I do. I don't know. It's this is going to be a battle, dude. He's he's I mean, he's doing great. He's fucking sticking to he weighed over the weekend. But he said that's because he had a couple soups over the weekend that might have sugar and salt inside of the. It is fun. So we got the final way in for nine thousand nine hundred ninety nine dollars ninety nine cents on Friday from the Super Bowl. We got to find a way in we got zone. We got Wrangler. We got Buffalo Wild Wings. We're going to podcast Bill possibly after. It's going to be an awesome. Awesome. Awesome. And we just followed up another awesome weekend. Man. Arizona was dope. Incredible weekend. Man. Incredible weekend for foxy, and I we have out to the God damn desert play a little golf game. They're on their. Let's not about it right there. Yeah. This huge weekend. Yep. We saw an T. We saw the pre everything it was wonderful. But to chip in for par Friday. That's where it starts and stops. Explain that. Okay. So the Gulf round was an interesting credible. So we travel out to Phoenix on Thursday night. I didn't have any meetings with WWE folks until Friday afternoon. So we had Friday morning open. This is where Alan quay Shipley. Lifts he resides in the desert is the fucking desert, by the way. I I married didn't literally the desert my first time traveling around, and whenever we left the hotel to go to the golf course you have to leave a little bit. We have we went into the bottom of the our attic mountains, art something. The Attica sounds right water rich. This is I guess where the the yuppies of the live. So we drive there from our hotel, which is downtown Phoenix and the place looks like it's in the seventies. Because the sand blows on everything. So if you have a brand new pristine signed for a restaurant that shit looks like it's it's probably forty five years old because there's just Sam getting blown on it. So we're driving through the live like the Navajo. They live like the Navajo. They got like mud. It's like, it's a different type of Dobie. Toby, it's a completely different style a house. I mean, they're nice. Let's not get crazy. But it's nothing like I've really seen before. So it's like it's a bit of a culture show. This is these mother fuckers really live in there's homeless people out there. That's the worst place. I could. You're going to be a homeless person desert. I don't even know how that happens. I guess within the last like ten fifteen years, maybe Phoenix has risen to the top five populated city in the country or number four right now just ten years ago. It was not like that. So it's all kind of fast growing it's trying to keep up its trying to catch up, and it's a beautiful like I'm gonna be downtown was very nice. The people were incredible lot of fans out so many fans probably the most fans we've ever been to any place any place we've ever been. Wow. No, no, most fans, we're where we are big out there big very big like it was in New York City. I could walk around probably once every four to five minutes. I can stop right for probably four to seven minutes, depending on where I'm why get like a Hello or stopped or whatever Phoenix is probably once every two minutes whenever we were walking out there. Just like somebody yelling randomly, and it wasn't like I guess there's a lot of WWE people in town. So they knew me as well. But it's a lot. The people that are just fans of the show big fans of the show. I'm like, thank you. Thank you, the actually the place where we ran into Corey graves and Sam Robertson a couple of people after the takeover right buyer hotel. The owner's son was like a die hard fan. So I look like this big swing and dick. Graves and everybody the kids I came out like I don't wanna say shaking, but he was like very excited. Here's palm house in his dad was like, oh, this is my place my kid 'cause we came in ready to like they're closing time. Almost just stop for five ten minutes Corey in like the kid came. I think he showed up whenever you heard. Zehr. Was it was really we gotta get to Phoenix. We gotta go to show an awesome awesome. You'll really good people to the people are very nice. So we had to go golf with a cue though. It's his town ache. You and I don't a lot. This is what we did. So we get into Arizona country club. Nice very tree bills over there. Tree four three or four bills. Forty five grand to become a member there. Forty five grand become a thousand a month. And then as I did the I did some questioning afterwards, I've never really done a country before. So I've never done the country club thing before it's not really my type of thing ought to be honest. I probably mocked it. Many. I've probably mongo people there. I mean, I'm mocked foxy for potentially being a part of one in now that I got to experience it, I understand why these rich people do the country club thing, we showed up to this place. And it was incredible. I had a sleeveless on. I only Paksitan's patterns. Of course, you soon as we walk in. And there's a guy that's like excuse me. Where are you guys? Trying to go. Excuse me, what's going on? So they take us down to the shop. We're like we're checking in cues. I'm an unaccompanied guests here. Like AAC us, not even a member of that country club note, his Gulf throw at his place got us into their unaccompanied Q bullied, these people into not having have guessed because I guess normally a guest has to have you in your guest ache. You know, this is an unaccompanied guess want. Anybody golfing with us? So we get in there. AQHA got some pool starting center for the cardinals. So that was very nice. If I don't think he bullet anybody. But somehow it happened. How long did this sleeveless last? Okay. So soon as we walk in. We had a teatime at eight thirty AM we walked in at eight ten probably eight oh five parked it. We've got a charger, by the way, rental Lord. Hemi in that. So we parked the Hemi, obviously, I have to read it a couple of time left behind accuse Yukon he was driving or Denali or whatever was he was like where you guys, and I was like. You hear me is that behind me. Now, I'm not even thinking that everybody else in the country club is now like who the fuck is this, right? So we parked. I have a sleeveless West Virginia thing on it's like a golf material, but I don't have any long sleeves. I didn't bring any long sleeves. I got golf shorts on though, at least I look professional there and some fresh whites and we walked about seven steps into the lobby of the main place, and there's a guy excuse me. Where are you guys? Trying to go in Cusack. We're non accompanied guest. We're supposed to pro. Shop is basically just walks us directly out of the lobby right down. Like a back alley rate into the door. Sleeves. As soon as I walked in there. I get a bias shirt. It was a nicer that was the plan whole times. I'm gonna buy shirt, by the way. I every time I've been golf with you. You never come in Gulf apparel. You just by Gough apparel. What you that? Well, I think it's it's a part of the thing is buying because they always have them embroidered. Yeah. Yeah. So it's like it's like a shirt from this. Well, these people did not think so early. So I go in there, and I buy everybody's real nice and our teatime got delayed because the do on the grass. So I get the shirt, and I'm like is there a dress? Anyone just take my shirt off in the middle of pro shop, which I would normally do I was like I could feel the vibe, right? I can feel the vibe this is very very nice place. And he's got a locker rooms right there to the right, sir. So I go in the locker room, it's a double doored locker room, you know, men's room, and I put it on in. I as I'm walking back into the pro shop, there's a sign that says reminder all shirts must be tucked in all shirts reminder walking out of the locker room. All shirts must be tucked. Alex. Look, I'm like, I was just fucking sleeveless untucked up. He's people were probably losing their mind as well. So I talked in my God damn shirt. I was like all right here, we go and I walked back into the pro shop and shirt, look good. I felt good. And he was like you can go up to the restaurant or the men's grill. If you would like we have like forty five minutes, we're going to do. The tetons. Right. Thank you. So we go up to the restaurant and its us in like six women sitting in there. That's just awesome. Six women are waiting to play too. Yeah. I don't think. So I don't think this welcome back around. So it's us in like the six women sitting in there. We get fed breakfasts. It was delicious. I got a double omelette six exit a lot of questions Coen dog double omelet with some other stuff. It was very nice tire. Not very fast too. I mean, it was a beautiful setting the whole backdrop was the mountains into call. Course. It was. It was awesome. I was looking around was shit. They're like, they come and take you. What's your member number? Right. So now, they have that whole unaccompanied guests conversation with this guy. No worries. They charge it to his course to him. So we're playing on his tablet another place. Awesome mood and network. I would recommend doing that all the time, by the way. Because it you didn't have to sign for that at all the entire day. So it never even crossed his mind. So I'm sweating. Put that shirt on the Bill golf course. Member to Twenty-eight. That'd be great. I rented golf clubs didn't even have to pay for them. And think about it. What it on? Another course diem in his. Yeah. So we eat we relaxed, and then we go over to the driving range a house. We still got like ten fifteen minutes, and it's chilly man who was really chilly out there. So first couple balls. I was hitting well, but I was using eight cues clubs ache you at two sets of clubs. He give me a second set of clubs. It's PAX. Jeez. Which I guess are from Arizona to new company AAC, you swings. A fucking telephone. These clubs are telephone. And he plays a lot. So he will not currently what his ACL he's only played like once I guess in a couple of months, but before that he was playing a lot out there because it's just country clubs everywhere. Yeah. So it's golf where everybody retires go there. So I get his clubs in the first. He's like whatever you do. You can swing. I think as you want it won't go left. Right. So it's like so stir. It's so stiff that it won't come around. So I have no cleats on. I'm planning on going barefoot. I was planning on going barefoot going there. Then once I started seeing how nice everything was kickoff barefoot. So I had to wear some fresh white tennis shoes out there. So I'm swinging this driver like outta my shoes. And I'm still spraying the thing. Right. I'm like, I got no shot today. No shot at all. So I keep it going keep it going and I find like this almost like a baseball swing. I'm starting. It's starting to clean up on like, okay? I'll find this. So we start playing a little bit. We start hitting a ball around Bosnia flying as far because the do. Phil Mickelson totake. You shipley. This ECU Shipley. Told us is the do takes three to four yards off the ball real three to four yards off the ball. So everybody is in a queue heard Phil Mickelson said in interview like three AM on golf channel when his baby wouldn't asleep. Thank you. Now dad in this place into the whole story as well. This is like a first time out of the house. Basically, he's been just fathering for all this goddamn time. So it was like a father getaway for him. But there's moments of worry about how his babies doing in the middle of the fucking course. I had no idea what was going on. So we start warming up. We start playing I three holes or just like let's just walk in. Let's see what happens here. And then we get into a game of wolf. Right. A game of wolf would what are the rules rule? So well, if is a game where you have a set order, and then he could pick a teammate or go lone wolf if you want for points at the end, it got a little competitive. Okay. But I was I was so hit or miss. I mean, I was hitting. I was hitting iron shots into like fucking seven feet. And then the next one was going directly to the Ryan who was so hit or miss, but by around like whole nine or ten I started I was loose. The driver was coming rows hitting balls. Like, probably the square us. I've ever hit drivers in my life because bombs it felt like I was swinging a baseball bat, and I'm just like swinging his heart as the ball looked like it was this big at one. I just hit the fuck out of this. And I was going it was it was a lot of fun. And then we get to a par three in the irons had the irons have been hit or miss at. This point par-three was going to be my nemesis. I go lone wolf, I believe on the par-three because I know I was planning on going lone wolf because I needed to get some point centers. I was bad early. So losing to people down like three or four at the time. So I t- off I and I pull a seven iron deep into the bucket and desert rocks to the left nowhere near the goddamn green. Right. So I'm like why can't go with now? Son of a bitch think foxy hits it somewhere pick foxy. It's me and foxy versa. Q. Yes. Khloe so I'm in the fucking desert in the rocks with trees, which it was bad. It was a bad poor to the left, and I go to hit it just give it like a little punch because I had a tree right behind me. And I dump it right up to like next to the green where you guys saw me. And that's why I was like okay letting too because at this point I was behind a Q like two three points in eight Cue's talking a lot of shit like talking a lot of shit has point. So I'm like, I'm laying to no big deal. Chip in for par. I actually say that before I'm like, oh, and I'm like, boom. I chip it. And it looks like it's going. I'd probably chipped in probably three or four times in my life. This is not a normal thing. And then a false, and I wanted to lose my. I wanted to lose my mind. And then I look up achey has a par putt from like four feet. And I'm like, I'm not even going to get a point here. Part doesn't walk at the puck off at the boat. But it was a huge moment. That's why golf golf though you at that one shot, and you want to go back absolutely foxy was bought a little bit. Yeah. I started out hot. I started out. And then I lost it also every single one of my drives. I went down the middle pats fucking one hundred yards in front of me, which is Louise's Noakes demoralize. It was awesome. It wasn't really a scramble player. I just got a knock it up to the green. And then hope I get up and down. And then keep it move foxy plays like a nine year. Yeah. Exactly. We we're on the course with a bunch of ninety year olds. Like, that's who Arizona. I think everybody just retires. And then they just become members at these country clubs and golf all day. It's like the dream. They had handicapped flags on the carts. Like, they had handicapped legs go, which I don't know what that means. Like, what does that mean? They're allowed to drive like a forty five. I have no clue what that means. But I almost killed. An old man. I I had to give them a four no way the handicapped like heard it though it went right through their legs right through their fucking group. It was like I was probably three hundred eight yards away from me. They look around. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. And then the members then they waited they waited. So we get up there in eight you gets out early. Like, I'm gonna go to my son. I'm like yours where you're sending me into this. So I have to drive up to their T box. And I go I am so sorry. I had. No, I I am so sorry. And among guy goes, you must've been pretty far out. I was like I was on the t books you were on the t. Does like yeah. And the one guy goes that's the long. Wow. No. How'd you get it here? And I was just swung the shit out that I'd no idea where it was going to one guy goes. Well, that's obvious. You almost killed Ted or. Often the goal. Yeah. They hopped into golf cart and pull away. And it was not point. We had like a bunch better relationship with them. But we were very much outsiders place. And it was a it was a great day Q in an appointing them. Oh, yeah. Lot came down to the last hole, though, did come down to he. He I would I had to get a loan eagle on eighteen in the dramatics played out. I was putting for eagle. I was putting eagle. One of the most electric moments in the history of that golf course. I've never seen anything like this playing golf in my life. Suzanne believable. So I'm teeing off. I'm going I I'm down four. So I need eagle lone wolf to tie. This thing. I had earned five points for both foxy NA Q in this second back night. I was hot and I was backpacking. Yeah. I was like win win win win win. But I was getting points for other people too. So I couldn't regain a ground. Yeah. That fucking par-three. I needed alone wolf myself. But I couldn't do it. So I was really just picking points where the two were already ahead of me. I was in a bad spot. But it came down to eighteen Romley leading off I need to lone eagle. It was a par-five set a perfect. I'm like here we go. This is it I'm playing well. Let's get this eagle sentencing in overtime AAC US pay for an entire another round for us to play one whole fuck it. So I thi off and I I cross it. But it's drifting. Right, right. So it's drifting right fading. Right. Where there is definitely a string of houses to the right? Oh, be right there to the right, right? Fading fading fading in Q goes out of bounds. I win out of bounds. It's over I already went. You can't get an eagle. I'm like, I don't think it's out of bounds though. Because I saw some birds flop up out of a fence. I thought maybe I hit the fence and it bounce back. I thought those bus -bility. So we drive down there by this point, the group behind us is become friends with us, and they're basically just with us at this point. They're with us. So we're driving down just looking and I'm looking in the backyards of these book and houses that are very nice on this golf course. I'm just kind of snooping around. And then we get up to this one. It was it wasn't fenced in. But it was right on the side of the fence where I saw the things go, and there's a lady there their re they're renovating the house, she's standing in her backyard on the steps, and I excuse me is this is definitely out of balance. Where is there any ball near you? Or do you see any come? And she goes, wait a minute. And she picks up a ball picks up a ball from her stairway. Which is probably fifteen yards out of bounds. Fifteen. Yeah. Fifteen ten fifteen yards at a bounce. She picks up. And she goes title is four. I'm like. Yup. She's like ProVia one. That's I'm like. Yeah. And she throws it balls in plate inbounds foot. Inbound. Foxy has it all on camera? The entire thing on camera. She throws it back down. Like, I never. Thank you. So much. I never fucking touch. Oh delayed bounce. I said. Delayed bounce out of bounds right back. So now, we got the group behind us with us the lady standing there and the cart. So I go given the fuck fucking hybrid eq-. Right. I'm like to probably to twenty two the green or so to twenty and I take out this hybrid two different sets of music playing ours. And the group behind us old rich lady outside to just threw the thing. Back staring two dachshunds wiener dogs outside his bucket hybrid probably to twenty four to twenty five right to the fucking green. Or on in front of all these people. Make thank you lady. Have a good one. Why into accuse accuse against bullshit is what q saying, but achey was impressed with the shot. Yeah. Sure. So he was like if this ends up. I mean, I'll take your basically saying so then we get up to the green. And the green was the biggest green of you. It was the biggest green very fast to the things were like glass out there. It was like one hundred and some foot putt for eagle, and I. I can't read a green. I've learned. I cannot I cannot I I can hit it the proper speed. Yeah. I can give good role edit. But when I think it's going to zig zags every fucking, and it was very confusing to me that eagle putt. I had a pin high probably like five six feet to the right? But if I read that thing, right? It's probably going in and were dancing. I just couldn't read the God damn greens. So I ended up missing the birdie putt and ended up with fucking par. It was a nightmare. But it was a great a great day of right there. Day. So after that, the group behind us very much a regular guy named Dave. He I think his dad might own the fucking place to be honest, the way, he was untucked shirt t shirt, basically, like no caller had on like a sperry's. He seemed like he owned the play. He very much had that bravado. Bravado is if he knew people there he's like you should stick around afterwards. There'll be like hundred some people in there, just having drinks. It's Friday afternoon. You're here for the perfect time. Nice. I appreciate that. So we go inside in the men's grill. Yeah. Men's grill. Right. So that exclusive no women no women allow the women are all in the restaurant where we were eating breakfast. So we were eating where the wives were eating in the restaurant. The men just sit down in the men's grill. That's it all hang out down there. It's like they play cards. They do this. They do that the women have their own club in the restaurant almost. And I was like, I we drove your NFL. Like, we're in the seventies. Now. Feels like we're in the booming thirty or twenty s it felt like we were away back in time. It was just like a very interesting thing. We're only ever like probably forty five minutes to launch. We were just kind of hanging out. And we were out. I had I had pretty big meeting. About what we're going to be doing. It was it was pretty large meeting when I do not know we were walking into that big of a meeting. We were a little late a little, hey, not our fault, though, not our fault. We go around the whole stadium like four times convention centers four different buildings. It's a convention centers. They have four of them, and we were told to meet in convention center. We're at like the northeast one we need to be at the south west one. So we had to walk through a couple of different cosmic caused play places. We're looking for the Royal rumble a wrong building which building you'll see it. They kept saying so we walked into another building. And there were like, oh you looking for a Royal rumble. They'll you'll see it. I'm like we haven't. I am letting you know that we have not seen it and we've walked into two different fucking building. Shot that meeting a minute late. And it was it was everybody that was in the meeting, which is looking at are watching us. And I was like you guys should have better advertise we're in fucking south west building shit. How about this Michael Cole? Why don't you put it into the fucking sign saying, hey, it's the south west building instead of just convention center. There's five of these bucket things in Phoenix was beautiful. It was awesome finish beautiful. And then annexed takeover show happens. I was looking electric. Appreciate that tell you. Why that dynamic you and Sam have is fucking something special. Don't you feel it when you're in there? Hey, Sam Sam sandwich trending their sandwich for what he said about Bianca BelAir. It's very interesting. It was very interesting came out of nowhere. How is very surprised by. But he was he told me he's had a moment of realization there because I thought he was going to have. So at the last wrestlemainia he was on the pre show in the Senate to him. And there was some communication issue where he's live on the pre show, maybe on the USA network somewhere big. And he doesn't have he doesn't aware. He's going something happened any like freeze he froze on TV for like fifteen twenty second. And then he got ruined online for internet. I thought we're having another one of those moments. That's why I was like so excited. I was like here week out. Seemly mouth phone. That's what I thought. I was like. Okay. We're having one of those moments because obviously Sam as one of the most talented brains. I've ever been around. He is very good at what he does. So whenever I saw him kind of stumble. I was like here. This is a moment. This is a moment. And then he took the shot, but I got a I got a Bahamas fire festival reference on W. So there's a lot of conversation both here and in Phoenix with Sam Robertson, whether or not I should do that whether or not I should even reference it and SAM's like Saint give me like, I don't know. I've never thought of referencing something along those lines. So I'm not even sure. So whenever the conversation comes up about cash Asano and riddle the original, bro. By the way. He used to be the king of the Bros. Now. He's trains changed into the OB the original, bro, which I think that's probably the right move personally as you're or there. But I knew that there was going to be a desperation situation. So going into the show in my head. I was like if this thing comes up, this is my only time to really get it in right? This is my if I want to do it this time to get in. And so they they mentioned that match and I give my answer than Sam gives his answer. And then I thought they were going to pivot and change the subject so in the video, you actually see me go there it is. I just missed it. And then Charlie goes is riddled going to be healthy. And I was like, well, wait we got another shot at it. Then I start talking in the back of my brain, the fire festival metaphor is you sitting there just sitting there waiting, and I'm having a conversation. Like, what are you going to do it or not are you going to do this or not? And I was like if I don't do it. I'm not going to be a look myself in the mirror here. One hundred six right? So while I'm giving an answer. I'm like, yeah. We're going for it. And once it gets like into the rotation there. Once it gets into the on deck, circle, we should say there's no coming back. So now another conversation is like this is stupid. We should not be doing that things already in the on deck circle, though. So as soon as it comes on Sam fucking, he does as soon as I mentioned a possibility happened to him, you know, in Sam said, he's like, oh, I hope he does it because Sam just goes along with it in even deeper potentially Dixie even deeper it was beautiful. That was a moment that was one hundred percents than me that was one hundred percent finally cal-. You had the same thought process. The psych yourself up to reference what Andy king. He did actually going to potentially do the. Yeah. Exactly. That was exactly what it was called him. Cousin and they wanna go by name. I don't want people to get too deep because I do understand the kids are watching. I'll give you credit last week on pod. You said you toddlers? That's good word, I'm gonna use toddlers. And when you rattled off toddlers some bitch. I try my I honestly I have a bunch of toothless tiger tiger stealth is wealth. I got in their toddlers. I got in there and then the fire festival reference. I only had I think only missed like one or two checklists in my brain. And that's all just a game for me. I don't want. I want people to know that that's a game for me to get those things in there as well. The super wrestling fans aren't big fans of mine. You just open yourself up because people are going to be saying can you say next time? Can you would like us to do that say next time, by the way, I would like that to happen because I do tweet things out. Like, hey, send me something that you may try because for me that's like a game. I honestly feel that I can slip anything into. Anyway, I think I I honestly feel like I can do it. And it's it's a fun challenge causing in organic reaction to because when you were about a really good one it stumps them for a second. You could see Sam get caught off guard like like, I would have died laugh at right out. My the thing I love is. Super wrestling fans. And I I mean the like the hard school. I am very different than anything. That's ever been on. God damp ratio. Right. I'm not breaking down the techniques of whoever I have no idea on why somebody should win over somebody. I do know. I get it. But I'm not that's not my thing. So when I start rattling off these things you got these diehard Resnick people like this is our world. Like, why are we letting this person in and I wanna tell them all like just stick with me? I think you win you over give me like another three shows just realized that this is the same thing every single time. But also fuck them to be honest. I it's hard for me to care on the unlike on the other side of that I saw a bunch of people tweeden. Like average fans this is why we watch this shit. Because Pat makes it like e- entertain exactly that's all in my head is just like when I was doing the NFL game in my head. I think there's a way to make things more entertaining. Sure. Now, not everybody's going to love it. I've ozone not for everybody. But I feel like I say some. I predicted like what was going to happen in basically three or four out of the fun spot on spot on? So I think some people if they just read the transcript instead of my delivery, just read my transcript, no that that's fucking good too. So it's not a delivery. That's great the transcript is as well. Good and read through that. But it's I could see that. I'm a bit different than what you said. You're not for everyone. Some people need to realise not everything is tailored to them. This is a big wrestling show with a lot of stuff going on. You're not gonna like every little piece of it. But hold on. No, it it's a pre show to like take it easy. Yeah. This is literally uproot show panel. But also, I mean, there's people that were very positive, and I appreciate you guys. And it was just I felt that 'cause I couldn't answer every one of the super wrestling fans. There were like why is this some guy a couple of made me laugh, very hard though. There was a high-risk or English or Scottish guy who said who is bumbling cut on the right? I I was reading through it. I was repaying too. Great. But you to great wise, Pat on accurate question, who's the bumbling customer? I was crying laughing. This point San was already trending worldwide. So like Sam was like a little bit. Like, he I couldn't even like have elaborately goes somebody just call me a bum. Green. Forget it. I'm sure you're reading a lot worse than. I enjoyed the hell out of it though. Man. I noticed that stuff change, though sense. Like the first one you did. Or is it still like it is it's the exact same. It's the okay. So this is my take on it hot take hot take. So the WWE's really the only playground for super wrestling. Right. The only league the only big one granted there's others that pop up. They come and go they have a lot of money, but the WWE is the standard. There's only so many jobs in the WWE, but there's a lot of people working in the wrestling business. So there's a lot of podcasters that are strictly revolving around wrestling, sports, entertainment. There's a lot of radio people. There's a lot of hosts Twitter's websites just that are one hundred percent. Locked and loaded for wrestling. That's all they do all day every day. So there's a lot of people that dedicate all of their time and effort to wrestling, and they have a lot of fans because they're good at covering it. And however they cover people enjoy. So whenever somebody that isn't a part of that group. I don't dedicate my entire life to writing wrestling blogs, things like that. So I am potentially taking somebody's job that has that dedicates their entire life to wrestling who has a good fan base. So their fans feel the need after obviously somebody like auto. He's wrestling bloggers tweet something bad about me. Then there, by the way, weaponising their followers. Their followers, which no I'm I'm completely fucking around. But those people will say something about me than their fans. And I completely understand. You know, like, I I've been a fan for long I've read the fan reaction to things. So I knew what was coming when I signed up to WWE to do WW stuff. So I just I just hope at some point though, it becomes like like there's somebody else that comes in. We're basically they gonna be pissed off. But that percents taking somebody's job in not me. You know what I mean blown? It's still new. It's still new. Yes. So they'll figure it out. But I do feel like I can add a lot to that company. Though. I do a lot in a lot of the sports entertainers are fans of what I do too. Thank god. So that is a that's a huge thing. Like a lot of the NFC roster comes and speaks to me privately like, thanks meal. Most unusually a lot of the sports entertainers in real slurs aren't the biggest fans of that other community that you're referencing there. They're not they're I mean, they're criticizing their entire. They're the media of that. Right. So I guess ESPN covers the news the WWE mix. Right. If a deal is made if something happens, but they're not criticizing two decisions that WWE's making. That's what all this bloggers shark casters do so they're like the Stephen a Smith skip Bayless of wrestling, though. So it's just more of an internet presence, which by the way, I read a lot of them. And I enjoy a lot of them. And I completely understand why they should be pissed them. I'm up there, not them. But there's a reason why I'm up there, and it's mostly because ever since then every pre show trends worldwide. Now, we're drill choice was key. Yes. Hi, Laura, drill choice was key. Okay. Now. My question is I saw I so I if you didn't see it paddle explain it. But did anybody give you double takes on the way? Go walk into worse. Oh, I've done George suits couple times now with them. Right. But I'm trying to set the precedent because although the world has announced that I signed a multi year deal with the WWE. I've only been formally been offered a multi year deal. So we are still currently talking through some things right because I could be calling games you'll be gone NFL games. Xtra. So we don't know how to set up a schedule where I won't be full with the WWE. I will just be talking head for them for the pre shows and shit like that. But I haven't officially signed the deal, but we're very close. Right. It's very very close. So I wanted to set the precedent. Like, hey, I know everybody in your company where suits everywhere. That's what they do. It's like it's a thing of the company actually, look good professionals like that's a part of thing. So. So just like when Chuck had his rules for travelling roles in. I actually created a shirt to go around his rules to a T shirt that I made a button down with nine buttons just on the top with the whole thing. Like that. I didn't even ask them about that should have not gonna ask them so much to talk to on me. But just like that I wanted to set a precedent. Like, hey, I don't enjoy. I don't enjoy shopping for suits. I don't enjoy having suits. I don't enjoy wearing full suits. So I was just trying to set a precedent. Like, hey, I I can look professional without doing the full Joseph A Bank. You know what? I mean. Like is there any way I could do that? And there was Michael told me that I I looked like basic means is what he said, he said, you look like, basic you. This isn't anything do. And I was like, okay good. This is good. Then our just know that we're this is probably what's happening every fucking. By doing anything. This is probably what's happening. It's just there's also nice over there. Very nice. They're also nice. They don't even know me in the very nice to me Evan. Fox's goddamn WWE to K game. Oh, yeah. I forgot about ever mention that the Corey to play the clip. How about? Oh. Getting a drop in the God damn WWE to gay. Yeah. So what you heard there was Corey graves taking a shot at Pat or me. And that's what they do every time. We're with them all of them are very nice to me. And somehow they find a way to take a shot at Pat and make Pat feel bad. They do that's really what do on on a very regular basis after we stopped by this place called mastro's which ever get you. It's going go is incredible. It was incredibly. It was the most outrageous place I've ever been in my entire life. There's it was just outrageous piece of meat. It was this is the picture took the thing that you played with. Phone in full eighteen ounce bone in fully cooked to perfection there. We didn't set a reservation ecu's like you gotta go to mastro's the people at the country club. Like, you got to go to mattress. So everybody was telling us we had to get a masters best steak in Arizona. Some guy was like maybe the best steak in the west coast. Yeah. Somebody was saying, right. So we're like we're going to go their house. We get massage. Idea if they spot something that's happening. They're talking it up though. They're like this the place you have to go. So after the takeover ends early right because we're two hours behind. So we have a couple of hours and I hadn't eaten all God days. I'm starving. Right. I'm like, we gotta go to the masters place. We gotta go to the masters place. So happened to the Hammy hopping charger with the Hemi we travel through the fucking desert like forever. Maybe to the next town sort of felt like we wanna Scottsdale and we head into mastro's. And we just assume we'll sit at the bar the bars to of us that shouldn't be hard or whatever we walk in places. Just packed bar packed. It's like standing room only almost. So we walked down in. There's a like a busboy with an incredible moustache. Incredible moustache his name's Miguel. And I go I go is there anywhere to sit. And he goes, I think over there run, and I go he goes, I think over there run. I was like which one he goes the one without reservation on them. Like, I'd fist bump them. I'm like, thank you, man. So we run over there. We get to the table. It's only two top. Table open in the whole place. I sit down as soon as I sit down this lady comes up and goes, you can't sit here. And I'm like, I'm like, are you? On. I'm like, are you sure she goes? Yeah. I go Miguel told me that it's okay. She goes who I go McGill and she goes team. Oh, she says. Oh, I know. Yeah. Team. Oh, and I could sit here and she had a party of three with her girls. And I think we're her friends. So it was like she was like as soon as I find a table that opens. I'll get you guys in there. But me and foxy 'cause Tim O centers overdose. Got there first, and we're athletic. So we sat down like I'm sitting at the table just sit down, and she goes, you gotta she has like a suit on almost. She's like you'd have to get up. This table's already taken. I was like whatever. So we have the team. Oh, she goes and talks guy named Eddie. She goes and talks. I just talked to Eddie. You can't have the same. But we'll figure it out for you. Thank you tell Eddie s at thank you, you know, and team. Oh, thank you. She's like, okay. You got it. So we go stand with team. Oh, I'm wearing to George suit that I warn everybody in there is in God damn there in full everybody's suit. So decked out. I got the georgiana we're standing at the head of the bar next to God damn team. Oh, and we're just trying to figure it out and Eddie comes up and he's like. I got you guys. Eddie's like twenty five years old and has a suit on I'm thinking, he's just like a busboy or something. He's like, I got you. I got you guys. I'm like, thank you me. Just hold tight. I'm like, you got it. So I look at Montgomery good guy. He goes great guy. And I'm like, okay. The fist-bump team team ogan in any goes behind the bar. He talks to the bartender, and I think he probably has his anybody at the bar about the leave and the bartenders like, no, he's can we move somebody. And he's like, yeah. This is a pretty good group over here. So Eddie comes over to this group of their moves. The group out puts them in a table moves them and put them in a table at a restaurant in has a sit. We're at the head of the bar now. So we are at the head of the bar horrific spa who prime positions, and he's like, I got you. I was like Eddie. So I I give one hundred obviously. One hundred I give team. Oh one hundred right. So I sit down at this thing, and we just started looking around, and this is the most ridiculous place. We've ever been around the whole place was just like who's dick is bigger. I it was just on both sexes, by the way. Watching watching paradise. And we're just having a good time. The bartender comes up. His name's Phil. He's got a good beard. I'm like, yeah. You're my CFO. This is you're you look exactly like film means it was like fill this place. Pretty cool. And he's like, yeah. You never been here before I'm like, no. He's like, oh, you're gonna love it. I was like, okay. So we get a couple of waters a couple beers or whatever. And we sit there and his other bartender comes over zinc's Christian boat had Argentinian big guy. Right. And he's hugging every person at leaves hugging a kiss, male or female rate next to me. Right. So he comes overtimes. I'm like who the fuck are you, you know, like real question who fucker you? He's go. I've been here. Like fifteen years. I'm like oh. By the time, we leave here. I'm getting goddamn hugging. A kiss. That's what I said to him. Right. So we give a fist bumper. Whatever Eddie comes back. He's like, hey, anytime, he goes need anything from us. Here's my cards. I'm like this guy has no idea who we are. We had to have looked so different in this that he was like, I don't know who these people are where they are. But there's somebody so Eddie gives us his car. He's a fucking general manager that I that is the fucking general manager. So I like I'm like Eddie Mava chameleon like what's up dude manager general manager one of the other? So I I bump them I asked him who like how'd you get here hundred start? He was like well regional is a bus boy and then a bar back. And then a bartender in the now, I'm the manager whatever he so we just trying to take care of people or whatever like that is so nice of you. Why did you do it? And he said who were you? So he asked me who I was in Assam look me up on his phone. And then from that moment for it. It was just like we were the the lady who kicked me out of the she came over and gave me like a couple of cards and everybody they were like everybody was just so fucking nice to us. We knew everyone and Eddie gave us a butter cake. And he gave us a free butter cake. I mean, it was just like, and they like gonna hug and a kiss on the way out. From the Argentinian. It was just it was awesome. It was a magical place. Really good. So then we head back and Corey graves Sam Roberts and a couple other WW people are at a bar. That's like right next door itself. So we stopped by their say what's up in? There was in this process. That w there's a lot of people that work for me a lot of people. So I'm meeting new people literally every time because you got you got stagehands you've got producers you've got camera people. You've got editors you've got you've got everybody. It's a whole universe in of itself. So there's three people I know at the table, and then to people that I don't so I'm trying to make I'm trying to be nice to the company that I'm about to maybe do some work with I in in general, I like to talk to everybody. So the one guy shake his hand he has an incredible beard credible beard as you go, man. Great face, right? That's what I say. Great face a little laugh. I walk around the other side, I shake the other guy's handling. Nice to meet you we talk. We're Chit chatting. They're having a good time. And all of a sudden, the the one guy that I shook his hand. I'm like they're like he plays. Professional baseball and all your federal. I played baseball too. I'm also a professional baseball player. Just like, you know, trying to spur on station. Right. He goes what position you play? He says fourth fourth base or something. I was like, oh, okay. I thought he was maybe like a D H or something like that. I don't know what that meant. He's having dinner with WWE people. So he must be a big deal in my head. I'm like this guy big deal. He goes to the bathroom, and I'm gonna who fucked you in there. Like, he's married to Jen sturdier. I was like, I don't know. Jen starters, they explained to me who Jen Sturge her is so immediately I've questions immediately. I have questions all of a sudden, you can Google Jen surgeries. It's it's an interesting situation. So he comes back, and I'm like man, I got a couple of questions, you know, because if he's married to her and he's eating dinner with WWE people. He must be a big fucking deal is what I'm thinking. I'm like, I want to get to know this guy. Right. So I asked him a couple of questions. I'm like you play fourth base. Are you like a victim here? He's like, yeah. You know, whenever you play T-ball like that's what it's like for me every day. I'm like, oh, this guy's a fucking huge hitter. This guy's a big dummy. I was like who do you play for? He was like the Zona diamond. Max or whatever. And then he was he said he started in Fort Wayne and safer thinking through an open pit share skip that thing. Any like laughter? Whatever it was like one of those moments us like, oh, you said you had another question. Just. I'm sure who the fuck are you like I'm just trying to figure out who the fuck, you know. And I guess he got up and left there shortly afterwards because the night was kind of ending we shook hands on the way out and all of a sudden Sam Robertson Corey graves. They're like reach trying to fight that. Was crying laughing so hard where he was crying laughing. He was like, you just you literally just alpha the fuck onto that guy was like, what are you talking about? He was like you saw another professional athlete was hanging out with us, and you were trying to make him feel bad about how he was professional after. Why didn't you tell them that you kicked off a Super Bowl? And Sam Roberts like, yeah. The tension was so real the guy left like the guy left. And I was like what are you talking about? You were trying to punk that guy was no I was just trying to learn about this guy. They're like, well, maybe you put a smile or something. I was like, let's just talk. And they were like what a shitty person you are they like one in on meals. Like, this is what I was talking about. They just piled it on. I was like no way. So we walked back to the hotel. It was like a four minute walk or whatever and outside. They're like this is what happened. They started in personality. Like, I you said he had a nice space. Remember who? Nice face. You said to them. I'm like, no. And then you said and then whenever he said he played baseball. You're like I played baseball. Context know that tension was everything. No, it wasn't those names Cody decker I fought him on Twitter. He phoned me back. So he I think he thinks friends which I thought I thought we were going to be friends. Hey, I thought it through they asked me like, what do you think? I'm like, I'm around Pat all the time. Like, I didn't think twice that he was trying to pump this guy. I I was trying to go in on. I was trying to learn as questions I thought he was maybe like the the white big Papi, whatever he was a home is catcher. What was the fourth base? That's what I thought too Todd. I thought I heard that before. I got to be a catch turn our attention. He doesn't play catcher though. It was just fucking with joke. Joking. I'm looking at trying to be modest and humble because he's not a great player. Yeah. That's what I think. So a triple eight player. Okay. But I honestly I was just trying to learn about the guy. I don't know much about baseball. But what they were telling me whenever he wants to the bathroom like, oh, I'd like to know about this guy. Right. So I'm just asking them questions. And then all of a sudden salmon courier, like your tear. I think so at all we shook hands on the way they were. So Corey was in tears crying, laughing right up such a funny scenario because this is how you do it because he could be like a four time gold glove, and you know, I won't know that 'cause I don't follow baseball exactly in my head. I'm thinking this guy is like a baseball MVP possibly a candidate. And he was pretty big. It was very very very possible. Really good in college. This guy's fucking Houston. Astro? Maybe I don't even know who I don't know who this guy. I don't know if he's a World Series MVP. I have no idea who he is. So I was just asking questions in the who who fuck are was a real those are real question. You tried to alpha him, I'm not I did not. And they made me feel they were digging. They're like, you should feel terrible yourself. I'm like Sam. Why do you always do this to me, man? I feel like a terrible human. He does. I it was a even you did his podcast was that Friday night. Just try to bear me. Thing the whole time. But how? I'm happy. Everybody's bashing on. But it was it was a hilarious. It was a hilarious out there in Phoenix. And that was where the owner of the place. So right after that happens. So while we're leaving the owner and his son talked to be Corey watches this app. So that just throws here talking about just throwing gas on the fire. I mean, it was next level. I just wanna get home. I just want to get back to the hotel. And then we get in the hotel and somebody screams at me from across the lobby. The it was just a whole nother who's a nightmare. What's the most interesting thing you found out about Sam Roberts like I couldn't believe like anything like that on him. No. He's interesting cat. He is he's sober. He's one hundred percent sober. He's got that beard on them. Now. I mean, he's just a he's a good guy. He I honestly enjoy him. Except for the fact that he always tries to make me feel terrible about whatever. I do. I was trying to become friends with that kid that Cody decker guy didn't even know his name one person's support them like chatting. With him for an hour. They never know his name and I'm the disrespect for one. Wait a minute. I'm trying to learn about this guy. Who was a good time. It was a I enjoy I enjoy the WWE group of human soon that I get to see man there. Now granted I I don't know probably ninety percent of the company. So ninety percent of the company has a lot of them. I have no idea who any of the more. But the group that I deal with them. They're so nice. We're talking about the camera people. We're talking about everybody. There is just so fucking nice. It's awesome. It's absolutely awesome. Mean with the exception of like actual players, they probably employ almost as many people as the NFL, don't they? It is it's his own town of people. I it. It's a circus. Right. Pick up move from city to city, but you think about their stages in the setup of shit that they now going to Royal rumble had Monday decided insane graphics. Well, they had that big stage. Are the big thing over the ring that had the lights into t they build a Jumbotron in the middle of the fucking thing. Wrestlemainia I mean in New Orleans that was it's like a hundred yards long. Like, they have the people that they employ are top of the line in everything. Even what what's it called of the people that wrote he's built things the road. He's at WW have they have to piece together things. Nobody else has to put together they have to put together stages that can lift and gain and this and that and back they they have a four K Jumbotron that is split up in like forty five pieces that they have to put together with zero. I mean, it's just it's all the people that work there. But there's a huge crew of a man they and they just travel around the country all year round just putting the Mattis putting on shows. Man. It's awesome. What a life who was a wrestler. K mindset. Bobby fish, Bobby fish? I didn't like Bobby fish Bagai or good gun bell. You're not supposed to like, Bobby Fisher. That's that's a classic Gorman take right there. That is a that is. Yeah, he was Bobby Fisher, he's apart undisputed era, which is probably one of the best fashions and all of factions in all of wrestling right now. They're a good group. They're solid solid group in their Bobby Fisher number that God damn Bill. Was luck shorts up? I couldn't. Yeah. Because he mentioned he mentioned the George and I hadn't brought them up yet. And I haven't talked about him yet. Clutch. What else to do? So I just stood up. I couldn't do one of these before. I couldn't see him either. Because he was through Sam Roberts big fro. I couldn't even see where he was at. So he was saying things I couldn't even see them like perfect, wrestling goodbye. Take. I didn't know if we're still on because the countdown in my head at all ready hit one. So I was like, oh, we must be off at turned out after watching it snuck like literally rate to a commercial break up with a high grade through a commercial. They're talented bunch though that the show they put on afterwards. Incredible. So good in credible. What they do. It's a man bites. Somebody's tote one point middle. Zona desperate times call for desperate measures. Exactly what I was going to happen, but his damn toe. He would have got to water. When I was trying to say damn time. What I was trying to say the whole goddamn going back to Arizona's what I'm gathering. Hey, I like that place. I liked it. It was now granted there in the fucking. Yeah. I would never thought about the same lasting effect on everything. Everything man now because I'm high winds lots of Santa blow against shit where now the people were awesome, though. People were very nice everywhere. We went people were very very nice to see knows out there. I know we're believe me. We looked it up. Yeah. It was like a twenty five minute drive or something. We didn't have all these trips. I never have really time. The fact that we got golfing with accused in Saint, I was awesome. Because at never happens. Normally, it's like as soon as we get somewhere, something something something something something something something sleep wake up something something something, we don't even eat normally something something something something sleep. So it was nice to get a little golfing. But the people are fucking awesome, really cool stuff. And then got home watch Royal rumble passed out woke up today almost t-boned by. Yeah. This happened ninety year old lady on my way in I'm driving into work. Pendleton pike is a road that I travel up and down often. It's a it's a hit and run specialty plays. It's always on the news for hit and runs. I don't know why there's some murders in the area too. It's not a great road. It's not great part of time. But I traveled every day two lanes up two lanes back with a middle turning lane. Right. So that's kind of like purgatory there though, you can turn left into a shopping plaza. Turn right into a strip club, turn left and do a. Parking lot anything you need to do. So that lane is normally used I'm heading down omitting south on Pendleton pike in the left lane leading a wolf pack of probably seven to eight cars. I'm going fifty three to fifty five miles an hour. Speed limit is forty five. I'm in the left lane. There's somebody pulling out of shopping plaza in a purple Kia that is turning going to turn into same direction that I'm currently going. But in my head us going gonna use the middle lane, which is the standard move wait for traffic to break up and go used very often on the street because you never know where the traffic is going to be it is a standard operation turned into the middle lane. Wait for traffic, and then Guidon I'm floating in this purple Kia stays parallel with the middle. And I'm like, well, it's going to be an aggressive parallel perpendicular to the turning lane. And then just rolls right through their straight in front of my car straight in front of my car. No. Thought of turning left. Like, no thought of even starting traffic. There's no driveway to the right that you could be turning into nothing. So I slam on my brakes hit the horn turn right drift hit the hit the curb ounce up onto it go around her back into the left lane. And I think if that hadn't happened she would have never turned left. I think she knowing straight the tire time she turns left into ends up in the right lane next to me, we're going up to a red lights is slowing down. So I look over. I'm like what the fuck, you know, like what just happen? She goes, I'm sorry. And then puts her hand up like. Hey, look at me ninety year old lady. And then she bears. Right. There's like a turning lane or she just bears right minivan behind me pose up next to me goes Djukic debt, bitches license plate like, no, man. I don't even think she knew where she was at is what I said to him, you know. And he was like are you Pat? I was like, yeah. He said I've seen you do incredible things on and off the field. But that driving maneuver back. Thanks, man. You know, we just kind of went on our way. But literally that would have been a huge collision. She might truck is a large loss. Do you think? You would it took like a monster truck? Just right. I don't know. I honestly don't know man that lady should not be on the road, though. She sees out enough out world, I'm coming. I think there's a chance she was trying to potentially kill herself. I honestly think. I would've I've never seen anything like it. Because there's no she's coming this way. There's nowhere to go over here. And she is still straight whenever she's in my lane, which is the left lane to late. So what is she going to do a complete turn this way? Like, what was she's trying to stop traffic? I have no idea it was. But she definitely saw me as a big truck, but arline dike-top marriage. Text you think so maybe a tweet a ninety year old. Yeah. Yeah. That's the problem. You old people texting and driving is a real problem real problem. When you're on a motorcycle, you realize that because you have to watch the driver, not the car whenever you're in on a motorcycle. I don't wanna say you won't be because I think you two are tech savvy, but the older generation texting the ones that are making the laws, and whether or not people should be texting and driving or not are the worst texting and driving humans on fucking earth. And it's not even a close second ninety. Maybe she was just just in the level of oxygen? Hey, I I feel I like a little bit of like I'd like some real like energy about journaling was like a drill. I was like holy shit because my front end like jumped up onto the I mean, it I thought my my tires were going gonna be. So if you're in a small car, you're fucked I think so. Yeah. Because I hit that Kurt curb was a real. I would agree with this like right after that was over. And you're like, oh, nobody died. I'm okay. That feeling you get for that briefly, three seconds. If you could fuck and bottle that oh and sell it on the street guy. That's best. The best. During that moment, though. I also had a guy next to me is you get the bridge. Awesome cool moment. Cool Mon, but my shit might not be able to work though. I mean, my tire might have just Sloan that would be the worst thing probably on thirty five miles an hour alignment. That's a big ass truck with big ass tires of big ass suspension. I think you're pretty good thirty five miles an hour hitting like probably eight inch curb, maybe eight inch curb that thing was real. I felt it too. You'll know tomorrow, and I'm a big time seat belt where you know. So everybody knows that. So that would have been. Why you to fucking scene dude wild? Hey, everybody hated it. Pro Bowl, by the way. I did not get a very good response. This is the worst response I've ever heard from and wouldn't even get to watch it because we're traveling. I was just keeping up with it on the internet. People are not happy with the probe. Why it worked Zeke you'll Elliott was playing corner. Jalen Ramsey was playing wide receiver. I mean, what do you want? These guys to do. Not a skill shot. I've been saying this. You're the game. The skills challenge is something we talked about this in the car yesterday. And I think I've been saying this for a long time, everybody's grandstanding on the internet that they have some genius idea on how to fix the Pro Bowl, and it all revolves around skills contest of some sort. But I think you pay everybody that made the Pro Bowl twenty grand k-. Pam twenty grand have them go to the Pro Bowl site. Do media do media for the NFL. Do media have a radio row. Just like there's Super Bowl. Congratulations. These guys made a Pro Bowl representing the NFL. Then have a questionnaire forever guy that gets voted in the to the Pro Bowl. Okay. If we were to have a forty yard dash contest. Would you wanna be a part of it and try it's okay? If the answer's no, but then put some money on it'd be like, okay. Here's an extra fifteen grand. If you do the forty yard dash, then you can have the long throw contest by the quarterback. They don't have to sign up for it. But if they're willing to do it. Here's an extra fifteen grand for this have a eating contest maybe by the offensive lineman defensive lineman just turned into a series. Of things that people who have signed up the say, yes, we'll try to do. And also a flag game a flag game field. One team from the entire NFL. Pro Bowl have them play against that. NFL network flag football team champion and put a million dollars on the line for him. Just have it be flag football and have the only people that are playing in that are the people that filled out the questionnaire. Yes, I'll try. So like if Patrick Mahomes says Yao try have him be the quarterback for the football team. If tyreek hill says, yeah, I'll try out there. If he doesn't want to do it. No worries don't feel bad at all. Don't even have to put out a fake effort out there. Just Buta team of people that have answered questionnaires Yao try to this Yao try to this. Yeah. Try to this. And then you just have a weekend of entertainment, basically as opposed to weekend of half entertainment. And then a game that always disappoints, you, always disappoints. It'd be such a better product better product. You could be entertaining. I think it would just be entertained. It'd be fun to watch by the way the precision contests. I think the way that piece that together with the American gladiator looking like, the best part awesome. You've let those people who are creative to start thinking of ideas for Big Mac throwing the football. Yeah. The high school was nineteen by Russell Wilson. I think beat that. My next question. I honestly beat that. You had fours that were sitting there you can only get them once but the eight points right out of the gate. He because I just talked about it on the previous podcasts, I asked if I could do the precision passing thing, they said, no. And that's alternately. Why decided not to do because I wasn't going to not walk because of my knee injury. But then whenever theline was doing von Miller. I was getting thousands of tweets from people who see this. Do you see this feeling good, by the way? I thought the von Miller didn't perform great that. He can throw the ball short. But man that would be a lot of fun to get on. That course. Yeah. They should think about having that somewhere for people to pay to like that. It would be a lot of fun to your quarterback don't shit in your cleats, Andrew luck. I mean that was bad. I didn't see it. Precision. I mean, he couldn't hit the ball and ask for the banjo. I mean, he couldn't have any at five point von Miller by three. Yeah. Andrew lucked. It was not pretty not proves ugly. Man. I mean, he was he won the good hands contest with Ibran and juju. So yeah, you're paid to throw the by the way, I would like to do that to do the good hands contest to a lot of body catching on his one hand to catch a lot of body catching just going to go there. And fuck it snagged at thing. But you got to you got to. I think they have sent out a questionnaire. Like, would you try if we were to do this because I think you'd get a real forty yard dash contest because there's a lot of guys to take a lot of prior in being fashion than other people that is then that's something that happens in football world, if somebody's fashion and somebody else it's like well lineup. Then that's the only it is very it's a very regular thing. Maybe two to twenty five bench thing again for the D lineman. Whenever it he to fifty sometimes or whatever back in day from the Cowboys. They're still running that all you're trying to look for his viral content. Have the kickers? ESPN around the world comes distance contests. Have the punters same thing. You can make up contest that could involve everybody. You just have to ask people and whether or not they'll try, and if you get enough people say, yes, do it if not don't doing. I just don't understand keep track of the scores and the times and all the events and you keep him as records, you know, the record the forty yard dash that could be prime time TV like the Olympic with that have a qualifying rounds. And then have the fucking Olympics there at the end have it covered. Exactly. Like a book like give it like sixty grand of the winter. Something makes a difference grand or something that these guys are hauling. Yeah, I think so I think you give them like, hey, the fastest person will win one hundred thousand dollar grand prize. That's something that makes everybody want to try and watch too. Well, and the issue is the issue is nobody wants to get hurt. Nobody wants to hurt anybody and everybody just is like we're here strictly because it's cool. It's cool to be voted as a Pro Bowl, which I think you could still do you do the media being a Pro Bowl? You just don't do the game. But also, nobody. Gives a fuck, man. There's nothing on the line. There's literally nothing on. Tara last one Orlando for a couple of years. They said it's a real shame. Glad you're live and hype at me manuscripts, you guys. That's it for today. We are so thankful you choose the listen big, thanks to coach Pagon Gano. We didn't really get to dig that deep.

And hopefully today he is one of the greatest hockey fans in the history of hockey fans with the the predators Donner, Nashville, ladies and gentlemen. Six foot seven three hundred ten pound left tackle for the Tennessee titans. Taylor luanne. Thank you. Thank you, folks. Electrostatic? It'd be here. Thank you for having me tad the boys I'm excited. Hey, work cited to have you. I reach out to you this morning because a new you're down to Pro Bowl. I should come on. You made some time. How is the Pro Bowl? Ben, this isn't your first time down there. But what is it like each year? Are you excited to be among the NFL's greats? Yeah. This is everybody it back best week in the NFL. Every I it beats everything I haven't been to the Super Bowl yet sold. So you when that happened? That is the single best time for any player. When I hear that guys. Just don't go just because I get upset unless you're Tom Brady. You do whatever you want Tom Brady. I honestly believe like these guys come in here. They have illegal. They just relax have a good time. Everyone's excited to see each other swap ghost stories football stories, everything and you take some friends along the way. And that's all that really matters. Okay. Who is somebody that you have befriended at a Pro Bowl that you did not expect. I'll get I'll give mine JJ watt next to me in the locker room of the Pro Bowl. He had no clue about me at all before the Pro Bowl thing by the end of it. I feel like we are on good terms. If we see each other. There's a food dapper up. We friends nobody would've guessed me JJ watt, become friends. They're also Martellus Bennett. Another guy mardi be and I became friends. It's no big deal. How 'bout you anybody that you made that made friends that you would have never guessed? Well, I've never been never been a what family fan. So I have a I didn't know what to expect today actually sat next to PJ what during the team like that welcome. You know, the little introduction thing where it's five minutes and the coaches make up. A bunch of bad jokes. The welcoming party. So I'm sitting there Alejandro Villanueva like grab Shan grabs me pushes us together. And we liked you like the offer hanging doing everything and then fast forward fifteen twenty minutes and he's not half bad. I think I might have been wrong about the watt family. This whole time the jury's still out on jayjay. But I think TJ he's not half bad. He's not half that you know. I can understand the watt family hates. I think they could come off as a group of Harto's. Basically, a group of does maybe especially for bed might be the perfect that might be the perfect thing to call them. But after you meet them, you realize that there are just incredible like JJ was incredibly nice to meet and have to be and I'm happy to hear TJ's the same that opening speech for the Pro Bowl when I was in Arizona in they gave us a speech about prostitutes being in town. So watch yourself because the Super Bowl is there the week later Warren Sapp got busted, I guess he wasn't at the opening meeting. Those opening Pro Bowl meetings or something that are truly special. Oh my gosh. Yeah. That happens a couple years back. I'm sitting in a meeting, and we pulled up before we want to practice if you want to call it, and they're like, hey, just won't you know, some guy NFL player, he's not a pro bowler. But he got roof feed, and you got a bunch of jewelry stolen, and I'm looking around like like who who is this guy who it would happen. I I never thought was. But I mean that that's out there. Get you. And it's terrifying. To be honest. I'm of fear for my life every single day. Okay. You mocked the practices because they were joke. Whenever I was there as well this upcoming game. Normally the people that are trying to get the MVP in the truck are D N. So at left tackle, you're going to have to actually play. This is how do you handle the Pro Bowl? Do you make agreements before plays before the game? How do you go about handling the whole situation? So like when I in the season, would I do is I try to figure out as much as I can't the opponent on playing. And then use that I figure out his mom's name does he have Sibley? What can I use to get kinda get them? Go a little bit Indy. Pro Bowl is the exact opposite. I'm shaking hands kissing babies. How you what's your favorite graduate? We give them a, wink. And I'm, hey, but do you want like, what are you like have you want to do this up? I give them like a, hey, it's a pass on this one. And then you really figure out what these guys are about. But there's there's always a couple of guys that go super hard. I I never really helped with Michael Bennett. Absolutely hard paint every year. But yeah, the DA's man they want that. And it's not a truck anymore. It's a Hyundai Genesis. So I don't know. I don't think any of those guys are dragging on. Of the year. I wanna dream though for offensive lineman for the NFL to make that announcement like the winner of the MVP of the Pro Bowl will be getting a Hyundai. Genesis. Every D lineman is like I don't wanna fuck it. Johnny sees good for you. You honestly, sit there, and you just feel the room just go. I'm saying you don't get anything. You don't get like any extra money or anything. You get. I mean, you might get a cool trophy the way. I I don't see this to be this week is all about just having a good time. This it's that's the only thing that matters to me do some media south university. You hit DisneyWorld with everybody. It's it's a blast. Okay. So you try to learn everybody's name their families named their mom's name you talk and excessive amount of shit during the game. And also after the game that situation with you. And Josh Norman is one of my favorite situations in the history of football. I don't know how you you maintain your cool. The the whole situation was I did go out of my own. He gets historical attitude. I went over there because I thought that he was trying to hurt Derrick Henry during the four minute drill. If you watch one of the places we actually read eft, which is a very smart. Don't you? Call and yards. We and Josh Josh Norman hits the ground with him, or whatever and starts pulling his leg and gator on the whole thing. So I went over there after the game gave him a little shit shot his little bow arrow out of queue little celebration that he does. And then and to me that was it. We were it was done. You know what I'm saying? Like, Derek didn't get hurt. Pay. Don't do that type of thing we moved on. And now he's jumping on calling and all this different stuff. Talking about me. And you know, if I want he wants to get hold of easy to get my number. If you in the NFL long enough, you can get anybody's phone number. If you want to give me a call and have a conversation, you know, meet up, we'll play checkers, and we'll figure the whole thing out. I I don't care. But like, it's it's gotten out of hand at this point. I feel like we just he he needs to move on. Well, so I respect the fact you want over there and let him know like, hey, that type shit ain't gonna fly I respect that your job as an offensive lineman. Whenever I tweeted out, how savage it was. I mean, you did the the violin thing you, you are savage on foot footage. Awesome. When I tweeted out, though, we had a bunch of people. I I had a bunch of people respond saying like if Taylor wanted to kill him. He could kill him, and obviously, and then you've got people underneath like, oh, just because he's big. And I'm like, no just because he's a fucking NFL offense probably lie. I'm just guessing they're NFL offensive lineman is always been the goal that dream. If you've been a huge guy your whole entire life. I yeah. What was I was like a toll lakey cat. You know what I'm saying? Like, I always like super Taylor the telescope in my class. But I was always like that. Kinda I looked like Mike from monsters Inc. You know what I'm saying circular body. The only way like there was there was a not a lot like you're like thirteen year old fourteen fifteen year old, but one wasn't flanked by any. I my senior year thinks her to function better, and I became liberty did not play senior year. And it was it took off. I got a scholarship over for Utah state. I look my coach I was like this news. I'm going to the NFL. Then don't get it. You don't get it coach. And now that that was kind of it. But yeah, I like shaggy hair was like the curly the pig. Curls in the front, and I wore like, right for them is we're like metal militia t shirts. I was I was a kid not to why I would go to like dirt bikes. Target and you'd be like half smoke cigarettes, and I think was super cool. Smoke a half smoke cigarette. Like thirteen fourteen years old looking back on obviously, not not the best life choices, Pat. But we're here. Now, that's all that matter. Hey, listen. If it wasn't for those choices you wouldn't be the manual today. So that is I it's a part of the story in the Taylor. The one story is one where you go to Tennessee. Tennessee is always talked about as being good. But then nothing ever really happens. Rabo comes in there as a coach all of a sudden, there's an entire new mentality. You get rich have one of the most electric boss Hogg press conferences after getting rich of all time. And then become a leader that team. The titans are trending in the right direction. It has to feel good after all these years and good. I mean, I you're going to fourteen but next year going three and thirteen Michael ruse left Advil before me, I call them. I did how did you do this for ten years? This is at hand two years NFL, what five games this is ridiculous. Not to mention this the nicest guy in the world, Andrew. Luck. We have a beat him. He's eleven and now against us. It's it's a tough world out there, man. But I think we're we're definitely trending how what is variable done. What is done to change that team? It seems like he's just not a hard nose. But he's like a relatable hard nose OG type guy in the in the locker room, and if feels like now granted he probably had to win you over to win over the whole locker room. But he definitely has you on his side. It seems like the team is behind him in rally behind him. It's a huge deal. Yeah. No doubt about it. I think when I mean, he plays fourteen years in the least you already respect that enough. But like he's young and he comes in. He wears this stupid chest pad to give him padding. Literally what he runs drills like the cat, and I want you to baseball me. We'll get your face out of it. And he's like, you know, he's Harto. He's I do it. You you're all get out of the way. Lifelock. If guy I do individuals with him sometimes instead of the old line coach, and I'm hurting too little it worse than them with the hole boys along with them. The guy be bad. But he brought the whole coaching staff in that way. You know, the the cornerback coach I sorta got his veins are made of coffee like I. Might be. It's hard to tell you what that dolphins offensive line. Coach might be traveling further places in the national you never never know. Hey, picking up, right? So for but I'm not I'm not judgmental fellow. Thank you. Candy teaches. Oh, okay. You're a Michigan man, obviously grade school kind of in a questionable time with their football team. But the guy who's going to be known as the greatest football player of all time is from Michigan. He's playing in a rather large game next Sunday in Atlanta. How do you see the Super Bowl going from your professional standpoint? Man, the tough one that's a hard question because I think anybody who is in the right frame of mind knows you've never better you ever. And then I hear him talking. I hear this story come out. He pulled the team together and said that the reason why we're going to win on Sundays in the baddest motherfucker on the earth. Is is on the planet as soon as I heard that it should have so many minutes or even back check it. I said it's over. Back in my chair while I'm a huge fan the left tackle for the Rams huge fan of Andrew Whitworth. He's an unbelievable like, he's an awesome guy has should have monitor. You haven't already. He's amazing. But and you can't bet against Brady. If I I I don't think able that much. I don't have a bookie. But if I gave I'd put it on radio. I'm not twelve as soon as I heard that I'm the baddest motherfucker on the planet. I bet on the patriots three times max bet three times on. Plus what else are you gonna do? Every time like even at the Super Bowl was like two minutes left in the fourth. And they're planning. He goes. I was like, yeah. They got it. No mean, you know, what I'm saying like ever never kind of Brady like people kind of question it and then ever since that twenty eight to three thing with the falcons went down. It's just ridiculous. Absolutely ridiculous different tooth. Is you play against you play amazing football players all the time when we play the patriots and Tom Watson on the field. It's like he's gliding on a Aladdin. Yeah. The most poisoning entire world. What is going on? It's wild Bill Belichick soon on side of. Where's the same hoodie, dude? I think I still think he was sticking it to the NFL when he wars hat the toss. Oh cap he wore the new era thing straight with the hood up on top not the patriots and not the NFL logo. I honestly Bill Belichick doesn't do anything by accident. I think that was on purpose. I think people should investigate a little bit. Last question for you Taylor for the room has a couple of questions for you. The boys got a couple of questions for you who loved it. Yeah. Hey for the boys. You guys pick that up. I I like what you guys are over there. Who's the hardest defensive end pass rusher. The you've gone against where you had to with. No, you probably talk shit in every game. But who's somebody by the end of it? You're like goddamn this guy everything they say about this guy is lived up to the hype. That's a tough one because I'm good at football. I. There's good passers league. But there's like like five I'd say like, maybe the ten probably more like in the truly elite. But does Colville MAC is as I hate to say JJ wants town. But I think one guy played against and I was like, yeah. This this real deal is last year, we played the raiders, I think it was the first name of the year, and we play Coolmax do just he just he just gets it, man. Like he's so good his balloted insane. Like, he's still gonna turn the corner. His time movie got so much power. There's really no way they're really defend him. Like, he's like those guys are talking about you know, you can't beat him. You can tame if I got here super cliche this time. And and von man. There. There are lesser. They're really really really good football. So it's been it's it's only. But it's tough. Do you talk shit to them? You like I never like go into being in like, I'm gonna say this say that what I do is like I'll I'll lay like a plant a seed like I'll I'll I'll pass block a guy. I'll have a really good rep against of it. But you want it did it, but you know, kind of like job off and if he wants to stir the pot back. That's it's it is. Sure. Back and forth the entire game. Like. Oh, but if he doesn't really say if you was a fuck or you. Khalil Mack Miller of beating a fuck out of your service rate you drop in Alec Jason Witten every fifth word. Oh, really? Yeah. Just right now. All right. Who am I am? I better not having moved. I've this might be your fault. It might be are the boys have some questions for you Taylor Taylor. I have a feeling this guy you, but I'll side of you who lights up the locker room the entertainer. The team always never fell to the crack. You know, everybody else up. It will coffin is he easily like the funniest dude on the team hands down like if you follow up on social media like it's it's pure comedy every single time. He's the he's always like that classic one white guy one defensive white guy on the on the team. And he's just like he brings the whole team together. What he is one of those that just keep all the boys going all the time. But he's he's hilarious, man. He's used fun to be around. Nice. I just followed him. I hope. Recommendation digs at the trouble with me right now. Pet. I just want to let you know. I saw the titans put out a tweet of you wear in this gray hat, and I needed to have it. So I drove four hours down in Nashville with a picture of you and and went into a hat store. And I walked in the store, and I showed them a picture this hat. They're like, oh, yeah. That's tailors tailors tailors hat, and they gave me the exact same at you made him a hack ahead. It's like the gray like Stetson, a flat brim, and it has a nice like, buddy. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. Your slanted out. Then we're pretty you guys at you as in Indiana where you're that. Yeah. I don't think I've ever seen a guy where a Stetson flat brim head up there. But you stick out like a sore? Thumb big. Doesn't matter. It doesn't matter. What my question every you miss a hundred percent of shots. You don't take it. I'm proud winter national. Gotcha. Some style points came back up and now the trend I wear it probably three or four times a week to be honest. Yeah. He'll go. He'll go scarf within. Fuck. Right. Good. No. I said he'll go scarf with that hat here in India. It's like a whole new fuck at Bogan, Indianapolis, how many compliments do you get on? That thing. There's a lot of confidence. There's also a lot of not compliment. Yeah. It's up in the air. I love what you do. I'll go and we'll go to game to go away games or whatever game and every single Alvin I always put that hat on it. My wife is like through Lutely, you're killing the hat like you. That's what the damn thing very similar reaction from the girlfriend, but you know, what? I don't care. I don't care. It's great. I love it, man. I love it BU. I love it. I actually get twenty nine hundred. Not. I'm glad there's somebody out there. Taken some liberties. Because you know, I mean, I think you should take credit for what he's doing to your your trendsetter all of a sudden, Nick broaden next guy Diller everyone. I think on the planet has seen the clip of you and the rest of the boys at the national predators game. Chuck and beers in the playoffs in the stands. There. Were you always a hockey guy? Or did you get into it because of Nashville and the success? They've had. My dad's from like he's from Minnesota. And so he played hockey grown into mother played juniors for hockey, and I was like some trash like eight-year-old hockey player. I was actually terrible. But always grew up watching. And I know my wife's from Canada her brother played junior hockey. I guess been around. And we had the opportunity to go up there. There's some we did it before. Like, I brought a catfish and all the bullies out. There should we do. And then Finally I was like we're doing this. Like, we're going to get up there. I m fears and we're having the time with it. That's so everybody jumped on board. And it was awesome. Like, the it was a good time. They brought us back a second time. Then I think we did the big catfish bureau Lucy, which was just stuff. I think I was sick for two and a half weeks thousand percent worth it. It was absolutely worth it. And the next one if they bring it back more time a knocking to tell you, what do I have an idea that I think will just pop every. A little something for the predator fan hood out there. I'm excited for it. They Marcus mariota little everything's premedicated. Everything is premeditated. Marcus mariota. I don't. I think the first time. I saw it. He wasn't. I don't know if he was excited that you guys were just slamming beers. Or he wasn't a part of it. Now, it seems as if he's like all in with it, it was there a little bit of hesitancy from Marcus because he's the face of the franchise at the time, and you guys are shirtless. Beers. Get the best stain like that guy wakes up in the morning three thirty no question. Like, absolutely three thirty. Fountain of a man, they just. The worst thing you have the worst phone in history of the new razor. It is. You said Marcus woke up at three thirty and then complete saw. Yep. Yep. Now, you has a gun. We weren't talking. Are we back? We're what I hope to God. We're not alive. We are. I was excited to hear what you're saying there though. And you dropped out Marcus wakes up at three thirty. No quitting Spain three. And he he's just up being man. He thought it was a great idea you go for q. Yeah. The first time we have the predators wanted Marcus to come. And is like bring the online to all know. And then they all tended stole the show mortgage. He was definitely like that. He's like he's the DVD. He definitely watches over us. He's got like that that you don't wanna diff- point. You're and I think the first time he was a little licencee. What is going on? What do we get ourselves in jail? And then everyone thinks that he's he's bought it. He's had some ideas. He doesn't stuff out of eight. So it was a Arcus all about he's definitely for the boys. This one I think we do. I think everybody takes her shirts off this time in you, drink beer off of the fish. I think that's that's like a Marcus is saying to the. All right next time. You guys did. Okay. That last time. But I'm thinking next time. We got drink a beer up. That's awesome. You guys across out their best soccer fans. Probably out there right now. Next names gourmet is very older used to live in Nashville. Yeah. And when he was on my my show. Oh, I I went at my old show his like, but a second week in chip. I didn't hear it. Embed standstill quick pacing. Alright standstill for this question. I'm thinking. Okay. Good. All right, anyway, Matt leflore a lot of people were shot off the floor. A lot of people were shocked like wait. Wait, wait. Wait. They didn't exactly let up the scoreboard titans. Good team and everything what's your take on that? When they're handpicking euro see to be head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Leflore? I think every I think every assistant correction. So I can't be mad at the guy for leaving. But yeah point a little disappointed when he headed out the door. I think we had a good thing go. But when I found out that we Arthur Smith for OC did where it's I'm fired up that guy is he should be on the show. Like, he he sees a broS broS, bro. He's the man. Oh, I like the pros posts for the lads is what the Brits call that Zeno is one of the most intelligent humans on earth. Missile wanna how far Vance did. You all plan. The boss hog off it. Great question. That's a good question. I thought about me and my first Pro Bowl is like, oh, you get paid buddy. I had. What I wanted to do. I want to pull up like I thought like, you know, you'll get paid like the day before camp he'll pull it to cat. Just is in a show up in that like convertible all white and white interior with a steer horns Cadillac DeVille that long once with with the outfit, but I was like two days in a camp by the time. I I like six seven weeks before there's this place in Nashville coach, Richard. I I looked at him. Like, I need an all white suit three piece made me look like this guy. And I didn't go old school bus hog. I went Reynolds and Reynolds. Probably the best decision I've ever met you still rock that suit. I gotta hanging up free to bust it back out because the first game be played in the NFL. I got knocked out. Frog thing. It'd be my word. Hey, the thought of him talking to himself at his first Pro Bowl like in the bathroom. You know, he wakes up first morning. The bravo. I gotta go to a meeting looks at Amir. I'll tell you what they are. You're about to be fucking rich. Exactly how it went. All right. I think we I think we've been at boys I thought. They're gonna call type during the cold damore didn't figure out. That's not how I sitting there for three months. Like, okay. Do they they want me? Cooman? Next question's from guy from Boston. These diehard Brady fan name's Connor Taylor. How are ya? I am a die-hard Brady fan as a guy from Michigan. Do you think they gotta get rid of harbach is every year seems they're close, but they're never actually close the national championship. I literally the last time I was in Michigan was for coats like I haven't even against. Powerballs read. I I know nothing about the guy bandwagon this year. And I do training the right direction. I think that shape passing. He's we were we were doing awesome all year. And then we played Rutgers. And we played like, Indiana and things that go. Well. Ohio say, I was house. The I mean, obviously, I was betting the maximum two hundred fifty dollars. You can't with the NFL based the rules. Of course with anybody that was willing to take it, of course. I ended up losing to fifty dollars pissed. So you think you should be fired two hundred fifty dollars. I think little patiently he's making what three four years now. Of course, of course, a year two years, and then you'll figure it out. I mean like, you have consistency. A quarterback you have the defense place. Good all year, not just ten games. And then the receiving any there was some balls. I could've brought down earlier in that game. But they would've changed the whole thing. What did you in your court case? So do we do there? I could appeal. We did. Okay. It was actually gonna high right after my senior year gotta kill. Hold on. Hold on. If you're good fucking store, you need to we need to hear this old on. I mean, you're just you're breaking up there. We need glue. Dear face what happened in Ohio State fan? Hurt your draft stock. This is the makings for story that I should here. I was in Michigan, obviously. And it was like HANA state game ended we lost like forty three to forty two. We went for for two point to win the game. And we didn't get it. Heartbreak hotel right population back to go back to my my house or whatever upstate at and some hands. And we decided we're gonna go at the girls eating at the time by my brother and a buddy from high school in this place. So the Brown jug fun little bar.

That's all the time. Man living boy south living, she apologized about. So we're all good. Hey, thanks for telling us that story there, by the way, an offense pushing somebody. I mean, it's you'd think it would help you just like I thought Laremy Tunsil took that gas masks face didn't cough. I was like be fuck of. All time Taylor last question. One. That night. And everybody's like this is going to hurt them. I texted Chuck Pagano. I was like, hey, I've hit that a similar gas master the fact that he did not call at one time. I think I might be in the best shape of any. Thai. Schmidt from Iowa has questions the last one, we pushy at you, man. Yeah. Taylor. I haven't Nashville in a while just curious what are some of your favorite spots out? There are places that I should check out. Yeah. That's awesome. One place. I'll tell you to go here. Go to nationals. Don't go to Broadway. Don't good at midtown. And you're gonna go to a spot near midtown. There's going to be a place for all the winners. You're going to drive you're gonna drive right past that place. And there's a place where next to loser. That's where we that. That's it. That's the. We've learned football.

It was like a Rolling Stone article. And the only time any of them drank was in Indianapolis in the basement when Pat McAfee ordered fifteen two kilos for everybody was like, I tried to spun the article as if it was like me that was going to them. Fucking nightmare. Pyre? Fire because of. I thought that last Taylor. We appreciate you so much, man. You're the greatest have agree Pro Bowl week.

His phone was was garbage little bit spotty like AJ hawk these guys who have all this money and all these accolades their cellphone, somehow don't work. He told us that he was holding that thing right to his face. And he was right in the same area the entire time. It sure sounded like he was walking around it. Did he said he had a couple of shot as before he got in there? I'm big fan of Taylor. The one I am going to try to get his jersey in this studio. I think I start doing that like people that I think are hilarious. Humans started hanging their jerseys to get idea unless they're hanging them. AG hawk is obviously doing a q obviously gonna have a good thing. Taylor Lewan in here. Jerry's Butler friend of mine. He's going in here. People that I'm like that guy who laris getting the jersey, I think you're right to I think he is like the benchmark of one of those guys who he's not on your team. You just kinda hate him the way acts, and then you listen to him and stuff like that. It's like this guy's actually hilar-. Nobody knows that. Yeah. Even better. Yes. He knows when he's giving those answers. He knows that everybody. Who isn't? He knows that. There's people who aren't fans of his and he's like, yeah. I don't really give as very comfortable in his own skin. I'm big I'm happy he came on man, chocolate suppose, come on. What are you gonna do? I'm never gonna let him on this. That's what I'm going to do the first time. He backed out coke minutes before we started doing it. Because of the Chicago press conference he says I'll come on for next week. I got now this press conference is until Thursday morning this morning. So I can't record it. Because thing he's like house next week. I'm like three weeks out. Now, this is old news become the it's old news, Chuck I didn't wanna talk about you become de cordinator. Maybe you become like a coach of battle to Kamien beat it. How about that? Chuck on talk about you, Chuck not you being declared a piece of meat to me. But I was never coming on the show. I'm he's Texas morning. He sent me a text like my press conference tomorrow excited chat. What am I getting on? I'm like today you're supposed to be on today. That's all I responded. You're supposed to be on today. He was like paddock pitcher pressure on for tomorrow morning. Shows come on packed among and I was like come on. Jesus is what I responded with seven S's. Jesus said you cut never come on the show. Hope those bears defense does. Well, I wouldn't want to have an opinion about. I'm joking. Hopefully, we get him on the show doesn't seem likely like we couldn't get Aaron Rodgers there for a long time. And then we got him on the show, and it was awesome. Good chat, and we formed a friendship. It's almost like Chuck guy who traveled to Japan. It's the same type of field is like trying to get him on the show is impossible. It's like, this is an wise is such an impossible thing makes sense. If you're at the Chicago press conference this morning with Chuck Pagano announcing his being D coordinator taking question if you ask him why he hasn't come on the Pat McAfee show, I will give you five hundred dollars. I'll give you if somebody in the Chicago Bears press conference this morning which begun somebody in there in the media asked him why he hasn't come on the Patankar show two point. Oh, I will give you five dollars. Imagine that first question. Now open it up for questions. Let's Chuck saying heloc shisha. I was supposed to be on. I'm going next week. In his head. He'll be like how the fuck this out. It would be a magical moment. So if you if you're a media member from Chicago, and you are going to that thing. Just ask them. Why hasn't come on the bag Shitsu Puerto five hundred dollars cash five hundred bucks? Nothing sneeze at our bones room. Even if you're wealthy firearm bones is good win. Any of you can do it.

Everybody was we spent more on spilt. We'd. Oh man from one side of Amsterdam. That's what brought it up. You gotta go. We'll see now. Colorado. Those just like yesterday. The horse horse. We'd perspective. If you for instance, if you get we'd from Colorado, it's like, okay. This is going to be a good time is recreational league for people to have a good time. If you get some stuff from California there's a chance that that is legit medicinal wheat in that is potential game. Over Flynn flip flip for you. Because it's not for recreational use Colorado became like, the damn America's whether it may like what one hundred million is up the first couple months is up like that. Without the Boers in red light this or the horse in red light districts canals? You're stumbling out of the thing. You're right on the canal boards. Exotic. It's wonderful.

I do want to do and by the way, fresh squeezed, orange juice and every coffee shop, really delicious every. I'm allergic, orange oil. Yeah. When I was a kid I used to drink a bunch of it. And then I got a bad bout of Thai Schmidt. But I tell you what that's like when you're a kid, and you just run like you just came in from outside and playing ball or something and you run out of the kitchen open that sunny, drink the fucking orange juice ice cold right out of the carton back in there. There's nothing better just to be real player in the game. French D And Elliott Elliott pizza who ellios pizza, which is make more local joke. Fill with people. Elliot's beach. Step off the best part. You looked around us like with you. Somebody listening. They agree. Somebody listening drink orange juice anymore makes you gag what? If you even smell it. No like, this is just something citizen. This is the way if somebody is happens. I'm never going back. I did that with golden grams. Those are delicious smell them right now are projectile vomiting. Real had them right before you got sick one time. Ten ten years old. Okay. It was the same trip camping trip. That was on that. I find out that Elvis died. Okay. Fuck. Okay. Yeah. He dies his hair golden grams outside and I was like give me another bowl that. And I and I just huff that one down to the list start to feel sick projectile vomited golden grams never again can't touch it again. And that was what forty years ago case what happened to me? I was on the same cruise where I was accosted go fuck Ammann's wife in his. I was offered that up froze interesting, but we stopped at a this one island in they had magical mushrooms trippy mushrooms, but they had drinks for them. Oh, drink it. As opposed to eat the mushrooms tastes terrible. They had the drinks like a mult- like a mushroom Moda magical mushroom Malta most. And obviously I can chug things like a soup. Yeah. Now, it was like a moat long jump. Yeah. I am press the locals, by the way with took out. And he got to do what you gotta do. When you're when I was when I was in Morocco. I Chuck the T I got a standing ovation from the locals I brought people together there. There wasn't a lot of commodity. I'd feel like I did it. Same thing with this damn magical mushroom Mult chugged her down have good time searcher and a little bit. It wasn't really that the liquid. I think kind of ruined the trippy wasn't as the mushrooms weren't as potent. Good of. Yeah. Potent of mushrooms as I had had in the past. So I was kind of judging them for that for this is what they were known for. But the drink the the ability to drink it at any of the bars was something that's like, oh, that's a lot better than what I've experienced in pass. It was like a win win. Anyways, tasted a lot like mushrooms. So I drink that thing. I've good time at triple a big you back on the boat. This is same cruise that. I missed the one island to the next. Call. So a lot of things happen this. I get back on the boat though. And I picked for three hours that mushroom thing. I don't eat much us. You won't see me fuck around with mushrooms anymore strictly because of that situation. I won't even psychedelic. Those are to find. I mean, that's why that island was such a normal mushrooms. Yeah. Because it tasted remind you mind me of it. Brought it up and puke for three hours on a ship. It was situation. Russia's cruise ships your rooms like Vicks. A lot of room puking with my ask basically out the door. On your knees. Because by this time, the boat had known me, right? I mean, I just chugged a bunch of this places magical mushroom with a group. I mean about like, where's Pat, Pat, they open the door, and all you here's buck and how. I won't fuck with mushrooms. I have that same feeling with roasted marshmallows like campfire roast marshmallows, it sucks. You go camping. Everyone's enjoy more smells. I can't. Do it punch. One night got sick afterwards. Puke. My brains out marshmallow over it. Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. There's a good s'more. I do. Graham cracker. And chalk, I'm talking just marshmallow. If I like this more their caterers. Hotdog ingredients for the fire different though. That's why. What's Graham cracker chocolate without? To by the way, I will do that.

Is you take two Griddle looking things. Pray some Pam and then you put four pieces of bread down. And then you put some tomato sauce or whatever you want, okay ham and cheese pizza ham and choose him when she's very good. Also, very good close it and you put in the fire homemade pock, it's beautiful unbelieving. And you look like you're some God damn like Paul revere too. Together with you just throw it in the fire. Putting on a Griddle at folded a two, and then it comes the pinching. It's like a waffle make you gotta go camping place to get it though. Probably or Home Depot or Lowe's, gotta be with somebody who has it. Who has really make your own unless you're an iron maker. And then he bring. Pittsburgh. Wasn't the well there. It is. I think I would camp out. Here's a I would do it. A lot more often. I think if WI fi was guaranteed to be a good speech shirt because it feels like I'm camping Switzer suck loaded. God dip photo. It takes me seven minutes. Upload something it is insane. And by the time, I applaud it that plays Artie gone towards the end of the season. With the way, the weather has gone. My wife has gotten worse at home. So these for the brand videos come out like two series later, and everybody's like we're passed that bro. Is is everybody your house leave same for internet wants all shit. It's all shit. But I think camping is a good time. It is a lot. I can't sit around a campfire have a good time. But I wanted to camper. I don't. Sleeping on the floor. We're talk about law. Yes. Though, some of those tents are pretty but still do a tent one night. To attend for what twenty thirty minutes when it's Wyatt. And then you're going to be sitting in ten say and should have been with patent fucking gland. Don't get me wrong. If there's an option for a cabin or cab or a camper or something like that. I'm all in. But if it's just one night antenna. I could do still went that school bus, man. I wanna soup up a school bus to school. He's on the internet they're wider than the tour. Still yellow, no, no, no. We would that nothing gets probably blacked out. Probably put on some some big tires on it to have its souped up a little bit. We probably break it into sections to there's probably like a green screen room where I can film stuff in it bedroom in the back probably nice little living area, and then probably diner maybe in their stencil the legend on the front as well thousand. Yeah. But upgrade is going to be. Because you have to flip the entire thing. So camping this that was the plan. Yeah. Shower that well, yeah. That's back in the bedroom. So you put a shower in there that just dumps right to the Florida. We'll get that on the road press a button somebody. There's enough shit. Big wifi on the top of that though. Like, I don't know how back in the day for you guys used to tour, and you would just drive around in. There was no TV in any of these buses. There's no internet. There's no service people just driving around them back for. No, I could do that for a couple of days. I think I'd love it kinda get lost. But man when you're talking like weeks at a time, I don't know how people do it. They didn't really know much difference back. Then when black rose are hot the internet really wasn't thing. TV's in that was it very pressure right now traveling around for that world, he came to Indiana. I couldn't go had to record something. But he has a TV in his bus. That's operating at all times in WI fi. That seems like that'd be a good. I can tell around and do that that looks like a good bed back. At least looks up with a bed in the back of a good spot. Having all that in there like TV internet, probably it's expensive. If you took a boss, and you redid the bus, you're looking at that point. I was about the internet and TV itself having live TV. Right now. It's just a received cellular data communicates with some cell towers about the expensive. Probably. Yeah. Don't be fucking idiot. Protest. Cell towers. Phase coming very soon. So yes, direct TV's on all the bus. That's the only option really really. I know I know, but direct TV barely works at stationary house than Merrill, e works. I don't need to be driving across Iowa wanting to Washington. I will hawkeye's engines have the fucking seven eleven towed on my God damn things. How much it would cost for what? For proper to flip the entire thing. You flip. It flip it and how much you by shell for the school bus. Let's say by the school bus for ten grand. It's a pretty good one. It's nice is ten grand a hundred g's. You're you're laughing. If you want. I'm out the door souped up school. I was at anywhere from one hundred five hundred depending on how you want. Satellite on top. Definitely. I mean, we were we were on Jaco in Boston. Nothing was incredible weight leather and some of those million dollars run a mill those rockstar have looked into this because I've wanted to do this a lot I've wanted to kind of drive around and just live, but those tour buses whenever they're not open up. There's no room in those goddamn things. I always are like the size like a foot wide when they're parked in the open up. It's awesome. But whenever you're driving the actual miserable part. There's there's really no room in them. So those buses are so expensive just about to begin with. That's what led me to the school buses. I'm like, all right. We get old school bus that things all ready naturally wider that one of those buses now granted those buses whenever there. Perched open. They got the windows open and very beautiful but the school bus. I think is a pretty wide operation there and get comfortable in there little diner. I'll oh cozy keep the school bus getting extender on that rascal toddler. Donor for I want to be able to walk around make myself coffee. Sit back though. A little. The road. We can stop the best diners true through a lot of those beds in the way, they stack up like ten beds of the side. I don't know like Sean Letham did that with fluffy. I don't know boss. You you're in their little shell. It's like a little Walker of the five hundred one year. We couldn't even I couldn't fit, and I couldn't either I had to have my knees. Bent the entire time. Great. Yeah. But you're torn you're seeing the world. That's good. I want to do one of those one day a world tour. I just wanna go about around the right or did you call it world Tour World tour. The world tour just say that before professional world tour wish pry trademark that PWG world tour. Nobody's copyright cover recalled their thing. The world tour. No way. What is the city that you would wanna go to in the world outside the United States? Oh, yeah. We gotta go to a Beasley. Australia off to get your bus to. Yeah. Barscelona is phenomenal. See when I went. There was all homeless people hanging around that goddamn church. Mousa rarely. Yeah. There's a lot of a lot of homeless people. Well, traveled to the Beata that's tough to swim. No money expensive over there in a beef. I always wonder like in America from homeless person. I am on the first thing smokin to Los Angeles Elliott. I don't know how I see homeless people here in Indiana. Look at him like today, we saw from Buffalo Wild Wings shoot today by some huge happening at Super Bowl of buffalo. Boy. That game goes to overtime. Buffalo Wild Wings is giving free wings. Everybody. The Subaru will goes over time. Buffalo Wild Wings is giving free wings. Everybody in America credible part of the whole thing. I just recorded for like three hours earlier today. A lot of takes a get you excited. I I was Calvin videos. Do we have to make people excited for fucking free wings? I don't know how you guys are giving away your company literally got him though, because they control that. They just have that one guy. Well. Rough because he trips and then the overtime experts. Yeah. People are wondering maybe they were the ones that the old. You see the one way or another one has an earpiece the Buffalo Wild possibly that's their thing. But yeah, overtime happens. Free wings for America. Shut up. Lot. We're filming with them at the downtown. Buffalo Wild Wings here. And then we get out and I've been down a long time like actual side of the city. Three homeless guys in his back alley trying to work some deal. They're trying to full somebody like Zito. I I we stop and I stared at him for like, thirty seconds. But in my head, I was having a four like I want to get out and go tell them like, you know, every drug you want everything you could possibly want including good weather. You don't have to hide out from his because they had shit over their head for the rain. Yeah. Just get there's a homeless capital of America, get to California. How do we get you guys to California? Why don't you for like two weeks? You're little panhandle money and just take a ticket to California instead of spending drugs for one night nitric pocket half it, maybe just save half. Use other Hafer drugs or alcohol and just get your fucking California because you get your out there, and you find that fucking place. It's gonna be good fun. Never understand it. That was one of them were great north chance. There was a guy in gray, gray or green gray. They're potentially was guy allies the other day I have migraine or face take. If my car o oh, he's under some bridge. Z's? He's but he's not going to be there for long because I talked to go to. Cody more jacket. When we were in LA that homeless due to shoot hoops Lamar Odom, you call it forward to that just came out. I don't if any of you in here, ever, become eight any ocean. Yes. Including me, if I ever become home. Yeah. Promise me that you are on the first thing smokin to California. I tell I still listen my cousin all the time because he's on an off again homeless. He's almost right now. And I was always like dude what what are you doing in Indiana being homeless your waist smarter than that go to L A? It'd be home. Homeless people. They're like normal life hurricanes. The humidity. It'd be homeless alligators. Yeah. A lot of Florida Gators homeless people in Florida just violent people face craziest member homeless people there. They do the spice and becomes ambi- and Florida LA inches acid. They just have no idea. Hawaii would be a good place. Yeah. If you get tough that stuff, you're gonna have to swim. You have train for that one. Trained for going to Hawaii. Boy, you're excited. I am I guess it was gonna be like super warm though. Docking eighty high. No, I think it's gonna be like seventy low seventies though time so definitely worked for me. For me. It's going to be perfect. I don't know if it's going to be like a fool like getting the waters. That's what I'm saying. I think the water's cold. Code. I just. Sixty low forty two February. That's what I'm talking about. It's not going to be it's going to be. I think it's gonna be nice like fucking away. Yeah. A lot of hiking. We booked thinking the same thing you thought. It's gonna be warm, and then we we paid for this very nice sweet and our travel. It's still there the heater the next Sam like Google it. And she sent me a text don't even look at the weather for a while. I won't I know it's going to be great. So why choose like skull making me depressed? Was like wash. We should have looked at that before it was like a, and I looked it up. And I was like probably we're just going to fuck in. We're going to like right here. This is the weather like forty we're supposed to go when we're supposed to leave. It's supposed to be like twenties here. Thank god. I was leaving Indiana and showing up at worst weather. I would have been in Indiana goes from negative something to forty five today or something and back to negative. It's supposed to be snowing here when we up good. I like it snowfall. I one can get sick of it. I guess the farmer's almanac was saying that this is going to be a bad. Winter hasn't been at all Gallo wrongness that one big storms couple of big storms. Really? They winter. There's still time FOX it's supposed to snow this weekend. Isn't it? Is it like three to five snow's a weekend warrior? That's the only thing it's been happening. It's unbelievable. Usually you don't like snow not not anymore, but now after living in warm climate, warmer, climates, California, Georgia, Tennessee, I'm like fuck. Snow? It's real though, when you go to California, and weather's nicer something like that. It makes you want to be outside. Outside. You're gonna do something probably active, which is probably going to boost the endorphins in your. Good for you. Speaking filkin. His braids hand. An inspiration. I got a big weekend coming up, and are you gone foxy? And I are traveling to Phoenix Arizona for the WWE stew over. He's excited. Terrible timing yawn. Couldn't come. That's going to be awesome excited. This is like my fifth one. I think fourth or fifth WB pave you there. Really rumbles this. How many men in the ring thirty? Well, my go house outfit. Hey gawky. I got a car. I don't know anything about it. So this one every single time it's a whole decision. Because when I go work with the WWE. I mean, I understand that the expectations are just like they were in the NFL look nice, right? Like, we are a professional company. Nothing's ever been laid out for me. Like what I have to wear. I've always just been wearing what I think that. I should probably right. Granted Georgia ward a couple of times that's under the table. Right. I mean, they make it appearance because I have to stick wrecked. And let people know what's going on like my business on top party on. Outfit going on. So this time. I'm I'm going for it this time. I can't wait this. I am pretty comfortable. I still look professional though. I think I've been able to piece together an outfit. Yeah. That is both comfortable and professionally. Okay. And I've lost weight. So everything fits very news all about so I think this particular outfit. I wanted to set the precedent for like, hey, if I'm going to do a lot of these shows with you choosing guaranteed. But if I am I would like it to be known that I am not going to be putting on those tight suits that you guys expect everybody else to wear forever. But maybe I will have to maybe show up. You're not going on TV. Apply some shit that. I don't got anything else. I'm only one outfit one outfit. I'm sure you know, this since you've played it approval. They're exactly the same weakened actually gets cold desert night. It does get going gets windy a motherfucker to if you drive two hours out into the desert to attempt to do football practice. It's gonna be miserable. It's going to be windy. It's going to be cold. You got no shut the NFL great with that. Silver, nine AM teatime could be pretty cool. Probably be chilly. Never zona. Yeah. We weren't golfing. With a Shipley out there this morning whenever. Could be a little maybe three quarters that book he'll off f way through like Fogle. I like that. But without the leaves you weren't. Yes. Mar. Now shoes. I'm going tomorrow while they're scorpions all. Fucking poisonous. By putting shoes I'm wearing shoes. Secular fucking check. Check your shoes before you. Stick your feet them, snakes his real deal out. Thanks, Copperhead roads. No kill you. I've been thinking of some one liners for this weekend, though, what that murder mountain really helped me. I got a lot of I'd be watching a murder mountain. And then they say something let me write that down. One guy. The one lady or guy said stealth is wealth appear. That's for sure. Like if somebody doesn't like to talk a lot. I think the the modern live by stealth as well, which I I found out on a homicide mountain. Cannot say murder. At six six o'clock. My seems to be a longer one. This is the I gotta run a show this morning. And if it's based off of this it's going to be longer. We're gonna have to because they had an XT awards. Two words. Words show slash pre show. So be given out awards. Let's go basically hosting the Oscars. They're basically, congratulations. Yeah. Good for me. Who would have to do? Hosting an award show. I am the third host. With the least amount of lines start not to finish start to finish every show. So far, I've been very much on the foreign. Every time. I go out to these though, it's it's crazy crazy to think about you know, because growing up you watch it, and then you get to experience a couple, and I'm sure it will happen at some point. But it feels like how I felt whenever I was in the NFL in by. I six years. Probably it was like, man. This is awesome. Like, I'm having a good like, this is I'm enjoying like, this is awesome. Like, you're looking. I'm looking around at everything trying to think like all let me remember that for fiber story. Remember that? And then you just see like fucking. Stinger. Oh shit and he's like out of out of his face and brain just walking through the hotel with his wife. It's like I wouldn't recognize. Well, see. I mean, I would. That's why it's such a big deal. It's like holy hill. It's it's a it's all very Wild Thing. It's always mask, right? Well, that's. But when I get on those shows, I never know what they expected me. I never know what they expect even now. Well, because if you know anything about wrestling every commentator, there's one good commentator one back on the right? The good commentators on the good people side, the bad commentators on the bad makes sense. Yeah. For me. It's like, they don't tell me. They don't do anything. They're just like you just act. However, the fuck you want, and I'm like, you got it. So I just start firing shots at Sam Roberts. No hope there. But I'm like, I don't know. If that's so I literally I go in there was zero direction. It's just like all right. Let's see what the brain thinks up here. And the only thing I know is that I hate them Cole. I don't call. I hate I love e c three. Now. He's on the main roster. Good for him. Riddle price rentals in the radar Bros. I think the riddles blown up a little bit more to by the way through the whole thing. So I don't know hopefully, get to see him again. And then I just take it as because I don't know any of them, really. So whatever they get up on the set. Normally that's the first time I'm talking, and it's just like, oh this guy. Either likes me doesn't because I think they all know about me whether or not they like me or not I got a message from Laura's people on Twitter. Lar- Sullivan who? Get it looks like Shrek. I set it in the first one I got me in trouble. You looks exactly Shrek. He's he's beast of a man like a genetic freak litter himself is the freak. He's genetic freak. And that's what I said. You know, I didn't say to him. I said it through the TV. Next. I woke up from to a tweet from LARs saying, I heard you had some disparaging things is not. So then I go down to the next show and I see him, and it's like I'm a fucking like a little nerd in high school. It's like I'm trying to stay away from this guy trying to hide from him because I don't know if he's really pissed off. So Finally, I built up enough courage. I was like whatever foxy do. Smart. He gets bullied all the time. Oh, yeah. Another example is another result of the homo Sapien having sex with an Nanjing tall. He's Arsala solvent. Who else? Do we say shit you get ache? You. Thank you. Jason witten. We're talking about physical brain. Look look. Brown know, these giant heads, John? Yeah. Like the big show. Yeah. Big shows, but you get it. So I finally built up enough courage to walk by them. Didn't even look at me ain't even look at me. So now on I'm up on that stage at I'm doing that show in the way, my brain works everybody in here knows I'm like two sentences ahead in the back of my brain. And then I'm just hoping that the rest of my brain catches on in between. And then the mouth does the thing. So there's been a couple of times on these takeover. Pre shows where I have something cocked and loaded in the back. I'm like all here, we get them down. And then somebody in my brain like whips out like a yield sign. Think about this. Don't he's great. Also, really cool excited to get out there. Fox's coming can be filming behind the scenes a little bit foxy backstage pass. Had to take a picture and everything.

Otherwise Berg doesn't just like, you know, just doing everybody else's doing because we can stream live on periscope U2. and face Behan Martin at the same time. If we want is the only one that doesn't allow it either own source. Yeah. I guess I respect I didn't they wanna make more personal. Well, it makes sense. They don't want it to be doctored up, but Wrangler his every fucking models picture. Wrangler set to do a celebrity charity shootout. So it's the Wrangler celebrity charity shootout at top golf where notables both athletes and celebrities Herschel Walker is locked in. That's one particular person's going to be some other names that I've been told that are coming. I don't even want to say 'cause I don't wanna let down get. Some big fucking. That's your thing. I'm not. Don't wanna let me let me down. Normally if I put something out there. I'm pretty sure. So I don't want to I don't want to let anybody down.

Don't think possibly nice. Yeah. We'll see those Viteri going down. He'll probably be down there for some company, and I would definitely blackmail him into your best friend. Aaron rodgers. I guess his name has been floated. Has been floated out there ABC's big time. Gopher he could probably win it raise money. He he does that filling philanthropic stuff a lot. He would probably enjoy. It n we're gonna be live during I think the thing I like about it most is we're just going to be popping in live on people's social media thing. I don't know where. Hi, we're live with Aaron Rodgers at top golf. He's gonna be Mike up. I'll be doing an interview I was doing the shots be like three to five minute thing when it gets money. I mean, it's a win. It's a win win eighteen I was gonna say he his name. I was gonna say Goff. I asked him to come on the town. Yeah. But we can get some Rams, and and Donald Penn hills those name names from those two teams big talker, though. Yeah. But if he's just playing golf, I could talk. Show. Right. Pat hole on you a Super Bowl if if it's Thursday before the game. Yeah. Did you have the availability to go out to top golf ten shots? And you're playing Super Bowl in three to practicing in the afternoons. That's only if it was later like if we're setting up six to seven because they're probably still getting dinner with their families on Thursdays. You know what? I mean. I think we could. I think I could swing somebody into like, hey, I think you should maybe just have dinner here. We'll get dinner for you. You know? I think I could talk. Do it Thursday though, any game week, man. Thursday, your Thursday Friday, you're with your family still. I mean, that's just the way it goes. You know, just keep it as normal as possible. As much as you can that fucking Friday night before the Super Bowl is a wild Belmont just laying in bed. I can imagine. What about third Saturday? We moved to a different hotel because Bill Polian didn't like the hotel. The hotel was too loud. So he moved us to different hotel. So we pick up and move a wild move. Yeah. It was really really probably would have won. If you didn't. Oh, my I don't want to if we would've tried to go undefeated instead. Maybe there's some some type of rhythm acquire quieter hotel. Definitely acquire rotel. I got I got shitty fucking room. I mean, I was in a great room the other one then we go to this new tone. It's just as tiny little old thing. Chris after party would have been incredible dope. That was a hell of a setup at the lobby the back patio. It was like forty thousand square feet. Settle for a party, basically ready to go. Jim day was going to play the guitar guess on stage. I had heard afterwards. I mean, it was a car news the show, I don't know McCartney. But I think there was somebody from the who that was gonna come. Yeah. If somebody who was going to come good halftime show. The they had that you're all over. That's pretty cool. Kick balls. What's your meals beforehand like leading up to it doesn't matter? I a a like the same thing before every single game both college and NFL I didn't like eating much before games. Rich route used to say don't eat a lot. So he stay hungry. A mental thing. Rich. What you're looking for you. Interesting guy. I would make a begging cheese biscuit sale. Just one of those who just one of great. I'd get the scrambled eggs. And then I go get the American cheese. I get the bacon and put it on there. I would toast, the biscuit cut the biscuit in half. And then that was all. Yeah. It was three got the exit and got the one down. Nothing now dry literally the night before I'd go him. I mean, I'd go in the night before because I knew I probably wasn't eating for another twenty four hours. So the night before I'd go very hard until the nutritionist game. And changed. Everything while I'm sure it made her by performance. Maybe maybe not. I had a milkshake pizza. Every single one of tried to diet games. Tomorrow miso shit brings out Ambien every night night before the game. Always took an Ambien always watch Saturday Night Live every single site. 'cause there's nothing else on TV normally on the NBN still wondered why these people were on television. That might have been require retired. Watching Saturday Night Live every week. Terrible. Cameron his room. We could do better TV. Thank you borrowed. My MBA one time. He was an easy sleeper any bird the from me came down. He's got your man. So he goes back up in the room. I get a call from an hour and fifteen minutes later, it's a FaceTime and his eyes are wide open. He's like am. I supposed to be tripping right now the walls. Took the fall asleep. They got fought it too much. It feels like this hotel. My. Just close your eyes. But he's like how. Just lay down man, it's gonna stop. I don't know hung up on me. And then the next morning at breakfast. He like walks it. You know, he's fucking crux on. How did last night? He was like I'm never doing that. Again. Buddy. He's. The Pro Bowl is this weekend. Yes, we got into it. There Taylor the water a little bit about the Pro Bowl. Nobody gives a fuck. And now, he's literally bartering deals for DS. My experience was not great one. I mean, I do not love it. I did on joining clay Matthews. Tried to fucking ruin it. Completely. Clay Matthews attempting to block upon Pro Bowl is the biggest heart move I've ever experienced scumbag harder than Sean Taylor, absolutely wiping out. What's? Fake punt he was actually running. He's actually granted. I feel like Mormon should've maybe zagged at some. Although tiny to bro. It's like if somebody sets like a charge like they're trying to take charge in urine half court, and you're running in that person standing underneath a hoop. That's almost what that is like because he comes Taylor flying in from forty yards away in Mormon doesn't even think about avoiding him. It's just like they're too. There wasn't even a thought of voiding him. And I think Sean Taylor was going to sell out regardless whether or not he moved or not, and which just so happened that Mormon chose not to move any got murdered in boy, the NFL loves host. Not great for them. I wish it would have done fake. I wish we would have done numerous. Well. Nobody on your team wants to try either. It's like who am I throwing through? Nobody on my team. Do the try either. I tried talking Angela into playing in the fourth quarter Andy Dalton because there like a thirty thousand dollar bonus on the long. We were down like six I think like one score JJ Watson sideline Laaksonen sidelines. He wise onside and everybody's on the sideline and any Dalton's in the game for this game winning drive. So I look at luck. I'm like, why are you not in the motherfucker game? You're not the first pick of this traffic. There's thirty thousand dollars on the line right now. He looks like no, no, no. He didn't want to be rude to whatever so JJ watt pipes. And he goes you go in go in. I'm like look. Anyway, I'll go into a wide receivers you wanna engine walks away like pissed off. And then Andy does what Andy does we lose pick? I don't know what happened and I go to Andrew, and I go thanks, and I just walked that's roughly our last. I think you could have talked one gun, and that's all you needed was one gutter into a fake. I know would have been nice, but that gutters getting blocked by the other special teams guys not trying. No, he he is trying that guy's only there. It was Slater was on the other team, and we had Justin Bethel. So those special teams guys they are those who are trying does that's their their only role is there for that. And there's no way like. Our bethel. I think tried to block Viteri feel like extra point. And they put the skinny uprights in the day of the game. Viteri had no idea that they were gonna put in Guinea uprights. So they they actually did it for the Pro Bowl. They made smaller upright Viteri missed like an extra point and something else. Who's a year? He was almost perfect to the greatest year of his fucking career in it soon as it gets for the Pro Bowl. They make like these gimmick. Fucking up. Fuck is this. It was like a Rena league up. Put it bullshit. Absolute bullshit. He wasn't on my team. Either us on the other team would have been nice photo. You know, maybe a little ball for him. You know, maybe cheer me on was quite Matthews. Try block. Thanks, phil. I had a great to have you back. I sat out the last one Taylor. The one made fun of people that sit out of the Pro Bowl. You're injured though. I did I did have a dislocated kneecap but Earth Day did the right thing earth did a really cool thing. I I had a substantial bonus for me to make a Pro Bowl added in my last contract and I made the Pro Bowl, but I had a dislocation kneecap, and I couldn't walk for the last like six weeks at any day. I would kick in practice or game. I couldn't walk afterwards. I was just in bed miserable completely fucking miserable. Getting fined for fucking photos during thanksgiving just everything was also pointing towards like, I hate everything about this. So then I make the Pro Bowl while miserable. Dislocated kneecap have a great year. Probably the best year my life, and I was so excited. My a huge bonus too late, huge bonuses awesome. So I go in the next day for. For the trainers after our season ends week before a couple of weeks before the Pro Bowl, and I go can I get that scam for my knee the fucking hurts. I can't walk. Yeah. Find out dislocated kneecap. That was when I found out I didn't know earlier in the shit. Like, this is a real problem. And they're like, yeah. This is a real surgery. You're gonna have need real surgery was like, okay. But I answered that I could play next week if there was a game. So if we are in the playoffs the next week could I play like, yeah, I've been playing on this for six weeks. I could play they're like, okay. But since you said you could play to get your bonus you have to play in a Pro Bowl. I'm like, well, I'm not training for three fucking weeks and being able to walk fuck them. That's why Senate I said fuck I won't go. So then word got back to earth say that I wasn't going to the Pro Bowl, and obviously his law team or legal team was like we don't have to pay him. Said he could play in east using not to and then all of a sudden like three days later before the Pro Bowl even happened. I had my promo check showed up at my house. Yeah. Yeah. It was like holy shit. Like, really cool because I know there's a lot of people that building there were trying to get him not to fucking pay me. Yeah. I know those people were gone, by the way, but. Because I didn't play in it. He he was he sent it to me. It was very cool. If that was just like you made the Pro Bowl, you made the proble, yeah, you're damn right at all fucking on every media person. When Mark Quetta make every year of my life in every every single fucking talk show is like best best porn game. Andy, dances, and has a character, and charisma. You. I mean, I like Mark what a lot. But I was like I'm having the year of. Maybe the history of football. What gets paid because like your broken toward L toward all then I'll take some Advil, but I had to practice. So my issue was a had to practice. So if I didn't practice I didn't have confidence going into the game. So I had to practice. It was like a it was a nightmare because I wasn't going to go on a prone to shit over myself because I was like, you know, price terribly performed. So I have to practice in the next three weeks. So that means I'm I'm gonna I'm gonna kick a ball them be bedridden basically for the first three weeks of my off season. And I was like that's not worth it thought worth it. My mom and dad were like just three more weeks. We get through three where was that? One of our Landau still wasn't a why question was kicking. Like, by the way, my orthopedic surgeon gave me a lot of confidence. If people were to look at this x Ray, they would wonder how they walk little how they make the Pro Bowl punting a ball with this. Thank you put that on paper. So I put that on my fridge. Maybe get my. So. That's the whole thing. That's life. Great. Check out the Pro Bowl this weekend or not actually check out the takeover preciado. Times that I'm gonna have a good time. I think it's six or six thirty six fifteen. It's on every WWE social though, they play it on their Facebook Twitter. They played everywhere and then the takeover itself, which is directly after is electric, these humans do circus type shit. It's next level professional, wrestling, sports, entertainment. You you have to get the network to watch that though, which is free for new subscribers. Free for new subscribers for a month. You also get the elimination chamber if we're going to go in there, but the pre show is broadcast on a lot of social media platforms to Saturday. Six fifteen may be six thirty your little bored. Good and scrolling over there. I'm gonna be looking relaxed, but professional. And I think I got some zingers. I know if I'm. I don't know if I'm gonna be able to work them in. But I think I got some zingers I'm excited for it. Cool Saturday Saturday afternoon got football to senior bowl I played this role afternoon. Mobile NHL all star skills competition ice, and that's. I got six PM skills challenge. Oh, yeah. It's the best thing. Also. Baseball baseball could play the game. But the NBA all star our skills challenge. Awesome. The MLB skills challenges. Awesome homerun derby, maybe get some outfielders trying to throw a bone to a bucket. More to it. I mean, granted the game matters. Whatever now doesn't anytime. Does it doesn't even matter like the NFL just give them a bunch of skills challenges because there's enough there's enough pride in those locker rooms you can get some people to try these skills challenges who's the fastest guy used to do. Do the fastest guy in the NFL is gonna wanna prove these the fastest guy the NFL, it's just the way every single conditioning every single workout ends is if somebody says, they're the fastest who want it. This is just standard operation that they race as the only way handled. Why not take advantage of that knowing that they're going to give effort and brought is on the line? Maybe give them a little extra money for that. Would you watch fastest pitcher? Yes, if a pitcher. Fucking Tommy, John, right? If they did long punt, you're probably going to that Pro Bowl for. Sure. Well, and I I wanted to do the quarterback I asked if I get in the quarterback challenge that was the first year where they started with the real quarterback thing. And I was like, oh, I would like to be in that. Is there any way I could be then they were like quarterbacks only. Okay. I can't walk. For. Joe Scotia because they do hard a shot and shit. As a skater. Accuracy. Accuracy is my favorite breaking plates. Oh, yeah. Love it. I like to just go show. And who's the guy that we had on Jonathan toss? Scott John Scott, Todd Todd. The MVP of interact. Come on the show again, pretty soon. He was good is whenever hockey gets good. Again. It was died recently. What film to a lake frozen link? Well, he lives right down the street from my brother, fun fact, I don't want to one up every situation. Yeah. It's hard to do this. But I also fell through his child. Oh. Look. Potassium. I wasn't doing for strategy. Like you. That's what happens when you don't you fall? It. See I didn't have the cinderblock on my ankle dates where are you trying to find out make sure throw the center block out to make sure that the ice was thick enough to walk on? And then you would just behind it though it again. I might have just cracked all the ice. Very can't lose. It was very cool to fifty fifty also tied to a tree though on the shore. So it would have been fine. What a job that was inter block tracking you down three. Through the ice. So like actually fell through the fuck fuck. My dad took us ice fishing me. And my brother way out in the middle of the pond, and he parked obviously on land. I wanna walk back to grab something to drink. And I was by myself the keys in my hand to. Oh, jeez. Oh, yeah. I get like fifteen feet from shore probably ten feet from shore. Crag I go rate down like all the way to might titty all the way into my titty. And I'm just holding the keys in the. I'm just holding the keys up in the air like this in the rest of the lake starts making like, some obvious noise. Like this child just fell into real. Yeah. And my head's outside like on top of the thing. But my body's down here at let it go pretty athletic. Yeah. I didn't have a whole of this time either. But it was cold as motherfucking visit to McAfee looking like how he looks now, but probably a little bit more ripped up sprints across the ice. And they they tell stories about like he's footprint from him. Sprinting was like it looked like Bigfoot whispers snags me with one hand in pose me out and drops me on shore, basically at a full sprint, and they take off all my clothes. They wrap me up in a bunch of thousand sitting in the car turn on the heater. My dad goes back fishing. Really like our? Back me that you good os. Again. He's a guy we got like ten more minutes. Story of. Awesome drive. Literally just. Yeah. Zito at my dad or driving a bunch of shit for the Wrangler. Shoot out just grab me snagged me out of the fucking water sin credible. Was it was electric that senior bowl though. That's bose. It was good in theory for me, the fuck that mobile the home of mardi gras mobile. Uppercut? That's what mobile says. Say yes. Let's senior bowl is bullshit. For me, though. I didn't invite the combines invited the senior bowl deal for me. Yeah. Feel kicking. And when you feel kick somebody has to hold the ball for you. Thomas morstead who is now the punter for the saints good friend of mine was the senior bowl south south theme. I don't know why to be honest, West Virginia, I guess, but he was the holder in. He had never held before. Nobody played catch with Thomas morstead grownup. He had the worst fucking hand. Day one of the practice day one of the senior bowl practice Thomas. Who's a friend of mine at this point? It's like pad. I am not a good holder, and they just like forcing him to hold because normally punters holders. That's just the way it goes. So the first day of practice. The snaps are coming back. Jake Ingram was her snapper. He got drafted to the patriots. But he got cut because you stopped too hard. Right. It's real fat. And not the to he was too. It was just a hard foot. So Thomas morstead was back here just taking bullets. So he would the ball just like fly back his hand jacomb, incredibly a talented guy. Something happened to him. I don't know what happened to him. Something to be snapped the ball way too hard like you people told him that it would hit Tom his hands. It would bounce gun pick it up and hold a kick. And this is my only time to kick for NFL scouts only time. This is it. So we would have seven minutes before practice starts when the scouts were at the field for the field to be used for special teams. So. Punt Anfield goal has to happen at the same time. This is the only time the scouts are gonna see you even at the field is empty for two hours before the practice starts. There's no scouts there. It's just me on the field. So these field goal periods turned into these. It was it was like a circus. It was the ball gets back at hit Thomas like in his fucking face in any put it, and I would kick it. And it was like I did pretty well. I was making kicks they were going through. But it wasn't like a NFL ball wasn't going. There was it was a tough thing. Whenever you have a bad audits tough operation Thomas felt so terrible. Like Thomas felt so bad because you such a nice guy. He has since learned how to hold he holds out. But for the first five years of his career. He didn't hold. They had who's the guy that played for the bears Mitch Daniels. It Mitch Daniels as data chase, Shannon. Governor governor they'd chased Daniels holding because Thomas couldn't hold. He couldn't catch so a complete chill complete shit show every single time and then during practice there was nowhere to kick. So I was just standing on the sideline for two and a half hours this practice happening. Nobody talking to me just me Thomas morstead just standing there for two and a half hours. Then we get on a bus go back to the hotel. Nobody would talk to me to my room wake up next day of seven minutes of scouts or can't hold got. No shot. No shot got no shot. So during the practice. I started playing catch with Jake Ingram. And I started doing like one one hundred stanzas cycle off that him a little bit of an athlete, you know. So then I get back after one of the practices in one of the scouts from team says asked me if I was taking it seriously enough since I was playing catch. Well, I thought it was a way to kind of stay active since I couldn't kick any balls use ago. Okay. They walks off like so like there is I'm not gonna make the NFL because I played. So in my mind, the senior bowl is like this huge opportunity for me. It was like the biggest thing ever. I'm gonna go kick a couple seventy yard field goals. I'm fucking just bombed. Here will do good. I'm not going to the combines as my only shot and in turn. It was just like the biggest cost of fuck in the history. I've talked to Cincinnati Bengals coaches names Darren Simmons during Simmons friend of mine now he was the coach of the north the Bengals were the coach of the north Jaguars coach of the south. They had just fired or special teams coach. So we didn't have a special teams go. So literally it was. Fucking. So we didn't meetings with the north coaches because they couldn't see the practice because with the north time. So I sit down with their and the Bengals special teams coach, and he goes, so what are you? Are you a ticker? Or are you a punt because you got to be one or the other? I was like, I don't know. I think I can do both. I think I have the talent to do both. If I was given the opportunity he's while you're in the senior bowl as a kicker. So if I were you I would never punt a football again. That's what he said to me exact words K. So I was like all right. I'll take that too hard. I appreciate you so much. You know, this is an NFL special teams coach. This guy's a big deal. You know, and I was he starts talking to me more because I can tell you one of us a like a good guy. You know, we're having good conversation. He was the dude. And he was like I run the drills at the combine too excited. I'm not invited to combine. He was like how are you in the senior bowl, and you're not invited? The combine you have to be the only person in him. Senior bowl that is not going. I think it was like me. And maybe one other person trying to get you in there. I was like thank you. He tried it didn't work out. So I didn't punt. I didn't punt. I didn't do it. I was like this NFL coach just told me not to fit on this. We'll do this. So then obviously the coach strapping upon it's like a whole. Hey, we got a punt. And then a first playoff first preseason. Our first preseason ends against Cincinnati Bengals right by that point at one my job, they cut to mass. They the first preseason game. I hit to sixty punts like my first two points. The colts were sixty yards like sixty three wait a minute. Tim mass day. Yeah. He's under for the Packers. He was on the he was both hunter Smith was. It was hunter than you, wouldn't it. Yeah. Hundred was cut Tim mass. They was brought in to compete against me. My rookie year special teams coach told me to my face. I wanted them to draft. Tim Bill Polian wanted Jew. So we're bringing Tim into compete with you. Oh, thanks, man. Conference. I have to learn how to fuck him. Punt is a natural punter. That's awesome. So that will thing happens. Then we go through I win the job. Second game was average trying to hit another sixty orders. So it was like I didn't do as great third game. I did. Well, final games against the Bengals. And in warmups Darren the special teams coach for the Bengals walks over to me, you know, and I go thank God. I fucking punted a ball again out of fucking John. Never. And he and I just have like from that moment forward. It's like a really good really correlation in Jodi who was with the Cowboys. He wanted me to do all three. He wanted me to do all three. He wanted me to come kick for the Cowboys. And then eventually punt and kickoff, and every time we played against Josie Millicent any team that he was coaching for. He was like, I still think you could be the guy that can do all three I'm like banks. But my knees are saying, no. So I still have a little unfinished business with fuel. Go kick. And we talked about this the other day. If this business has good run for the next five to ten years, and we make enough where I can cash out. I would not be surprised if I kick a field goal for some league somewhere. Probably the NFL if I can build up these legs long enough. But yeah, the whole senior bowl to NFL process was crazy. And then I missed the fucking flight to the ESPN skills challenge day after the senior because shutdown fucking mobile, Alabama me and Jake the long snapper went out with like my dad and some other people shut down the motherfucking bar. Flightless must be at seven AM out of mobile Bama to Orlando for the SPN skills talent. I didn't wake up till eight thirty nine. Like a terrible person. First week of my life. And now just missed the flight for ESPN. There's no shot, but we burn down. Good time. I showed up twenty minutes before the skills. Jones started demint of the rules and ask him for the rules Graham does what are the rules? You've got to do it all in a certain amount of time. Like, we do we take steps. He's well, it's part of strategy. I was like I don't think I've ever rushed through like eight kick. What are you gonna do? Like, I don't know yet. I was like you guys get fractured and he's like earlier deals like. Right. Want it? Because Connor was texting me from the rules things where the fuck Oreos. Mobile. Bam Lee has like four or five flights a day. I gotta go to this place to get to Orlando. Connor was like all right. Here's the rules briskly breaking down to me. I missed all swag. So they gave out a bunch of swag everybody. But by the time, I got there. There was nothing left. So it was that guy was already picked through everybody went back for the second. So I got nothing nothing from the SPN skills challenge. Balls left tackle size, fifteen under armor. She's. Fifteen hundred boots. And I think that was about eight maybe it was a medium shirt. I think. Yeah. It was wild. It was. My wonderful processes awesome. Yeah. Doused, but I did win the around the world challenge. Other you that was the first one. And then there was a long distance one that I should have won a push them fifty yard right Graham, Gano one swinging though. I mean, I was still partially pretty hung over from mobile. Yeah. So the swing lube was you know. Was doing. Walking footballs that round the world thing was pretty cool. I think we still have some by parents have some footage. Oh, they played it and mcshea taught taught taught. In a win. All right. And I think there's even like a slow, I think one of them make like a psycho. Like the guy who missed like all the meetings show up on. We saw mcshea at one time here for the combine very nice guy. Very seem like a great, dude. You picked me to win like that. It was good for you. Hey, we gotta go. When combines here, we gotta go the which is literally like what six blocks away from your if that every coach will resistant coach the bet on horse is is in as that the TV during a combine it's great so TB off track betting on horses. Like, I go in there sexy wreck season there. He's in buffalo. He's got his whole crew with them. I mean, right. Yeah. Everybody's I've heard his name potentially. Now, he's gonna new job though. But I saw that they were like some blowback on ESPN that he hasn't been offered. The someone else got it. So he was trying to do the classic grew someone else's off. Rex Ryan was trying to do the classic Gruden where Gruden would all. Gruden would always release information at some team was to hire him through ESPN ESPN would have to renegotiate his contract for Monday football to pay more wreck friend. We're trying to do that. I think so you know, Rex Ryan is doing this. Wrangler thing we will get to the. Get to the bottom of that. Rex Ryan on the most intriguing humans on earth, though. I didn't even feel bad for Cody work. You'll you feel. World. I mean, he feels they're like I'm not even talking about him being a kicker. I'm not talking about him being a human. Hugh fuel. That's an interesting point. That's his job right to make. Yeah. Yeah. But if somebody's simply. Tom Brady, Wayne pass us that was. I did you feel about yourself. All right. So you have no compassion non him now for him. Yeah. Why a lot of things go his life. Whether he catches up astronaut his life is fine. Well, he a go with no way, he a stop go. And no way. You fucked up though. Go slower. I'll never listen to that song. Was that him saying that gronk isn't retiring? I think it system doing the they're going to still here. Yeah. Out back and fucking shoot him after this. Oh, I mean granted if the chiefs to win that game. Gronk deftly comes back because that interception goes off his hands into whoever catches drew Brees. Drew Brees cannot retire after what has happened both digs bench in the Minneapolis miracle. And then the blown call is how the last two seasons of Super Bowl ready. Saints teams have lost. That's terribly. Drew Brees can't retire. There might have been chance grunk same thing couldn't retire there that happened. But now I mean that three Super Bowls in ROY does says we go nowhere this year. They were gonna put that in. But then it says the bad boys for life. You know? Todd. I didn't know you had rep skills. Radio. That's right. Wraps coup. Have an incredible weekend. We all presented you so much heartland radio two point zero tomorrow. Big thanks to tailor the one hashtag and gang. Hashtag endgame. Send us in. What you think my outfit looks like he or she who is closest to what my actual off. It looks like will win a hundred dollar gift card to stored up. Where you can buy a pump membership. Sales dwindling. It's almost like their capacity comes with a t shirt and still. It's almost like you guys are at capacity. The next round is coming out, right them. Saint Patrick's Day. We got some heat. Coming say Patrick's Day, he Tubman it's my entire life. I've been taught that Saint Patrick's Day is just like Christmas. Just Tim McAfee, actually, whatever he was running his own. It was the only day he shut down operations for Saint Patrick's Day. This is a huge holiday for this business of Utah veer crispy, and it's our job to supply you with incredible stuff to where. So you can win Saint Patrick's Day just like we're going to for the thirty first street year. I don't know about Gordon. Well, less Saint Paddy's dated, I celebrated I spent, you know, twenty two hours in jail. I don't look at it. Finally as you. By the way, that Saint Patrick's things can happen patties. As somebody who celebrate Saint Patrick's Day in Ireland and in American ice, very happy that I'm celebrating in America Ireland. They do celebrate. But it's like all night before all night before into the morning, and then a parade happens and everybody sleeps. So like I was in a town where the night before the bar was open all night and at the bar all night in the morning, you're like trying to keep it going, and then the parade happens. And then the entire town is quiet. Everybody just goes to sleep after that. So it's much different. You know, Saint Patrick's days kegs eggs holiday here in America there in Ireland go all through the night. Now, granted some other towns in Ireland do differently that was just the town in and I was also called stupid Yankee forty five times. Everyone was that the Yankees, I don't mind the he's just for future efforts that wouldn't happen in Italy, by the way now we would never do that Ireland was the worst. I've been treated aside from France, obviously. Because if you wanna know how somebody feels about America, I've said, this you just send me into that country has I look exactly like the stereotypical American everything I wear is there a typical American way carry myself as a stereotypical American in when you drop me in a foreign country. I can tell you immediately the post on how they feel about a fringe or the worst absolute worst on earth, your friend charges. French aren't you know, hey, that might not be that might not be to everybody. But as a stereotypical looking American I have been treated very poorly in the French country, the France country, Morocco, a French speaking country treated me, well, they like everywhere. Well, everywhere except for France. Do you add an ad when you're over there? So they don't think American. No, I do see shame. Gorgeous over there. You kind of have a little like Middle Eastern thing going on the scared little bit. I've an American accent her. Yeah. Yeah. So what happens when I walk into a place. Everybody just looks at me. And they go up. There's an American writer can literally as soon as I walk in. You see the entire like in Ireland? It's all pups. Yeah. It's all public live music like in the corner. It's a pub there's a tiny little dancing fiddle and there's a bunch. It's either a fit or somebody on a piano or guitar or something like that. I walked into a couple places in small little towns in the person playing music even stop look to being. Fucking yankee. I'd walk up to the bar. I wouldn't get service. They would serve everybody else's. I could see you. And then he finally come over to me. And they would say Yankee you want nose like take it get us, man. I guess that's what I'm drinking here. I mean, that's your guys drink or whatever and get a deep sigh and. And then they would throw like the fucking check at me. And I'm like my name is Patrick, Matt. A little bit of. Have a little respect for my grandparents. Jesus they were Astles me though, it really works. You go to the wrong bar. That's exactly how it was. It was I never felt more uncomfortable in some places that try walk into a bar in Ireland with six longhairs. Let's go beer. Everybody's in there. That are just. Record stop water longhairs guys along air the band you? No longer. Oh. But they love American music. Not not all of them are delete singer was hawking Louise on the was spitting on the window because we were treated so. So that's the reason. Why the yeah, exactly because you're fucking people mine. Here's. Here's. That's what you guys call the band's people longhairs longer grab a long air. We got a, you know. Yeah. So you're the reason why street election, probably there's one followed me out. I went to another place. Followed me into the place that was guy. I stopped. Why are you following? And he was like full any make. I'm like you. Yep. Clearly, and then that was like is there a problem? It's like I'm not gonna start a fight in. This guy's fun down you try to stop them to him up. Maybe that's why you didn't go and accept their customs. I think you're supposed to go there. Get drunk and fight. Oh get drunk now. This is FOX gonna say he fought there. No, no. But when I was there literally a fourteen year old kid ran up to another fourteen year old kid socked him in the face ran away and the kid started crying and everyone's just normal. Everybody was drunk now. That was the most stereotypical stereotype that his one hundred percent accurate everybody. I saw in Ireland was drunk. There was a ninety year old man who was trying to get out of the public. This and he was spinning off the wall. They had the door open. He got to it. And it just literally wail this appear out the fuck. The whole place a laugh and then right back to it. And then that guy stood up probably an hour. Just walked away. Why nine hours later? There was a guy like that at the boys go to Pittsburgh, it would just fucking stumble out like that every single time with wall was literally holding him up. He was holding at one point. I wanted that to be me. Hold on life, not anymore. There's still time goals opportunity. Yeah. Don't do. Just to be a house gonna end up to be a regular at a bar or a town driver. Yeah. Pretty much the same outfit every day. I think they was Frank -ironically. Yeah. Vodka straight Vulcan needs sometimes on the rocks. He was a miserable brick though, never would've guessed, right? I feel like if you're drinking like that every day something you're trying to keep down. Really that was literally the entire. Lorna castles bullshit to them Barney stone, we just had a kiss stand in what they don't tell. You about is. This circular stairs way that you have to do in an old time castle that's built for fucking spock's to get through. Yeah. He's got to go like inch by inch. Because there's an entire line of you Americans trying to kiss little fucking stone. That literally they do this to guess it. Then he walked in, you know, locals fucking spitting on that too. Because they know Americans are coming to kiss all this shit on it. A little talented. They do this too. So I know it's. So I know it's. There's an elevator for locals, and they just put all the American where I saw the blind guy. I saw blond guy sightseeing lost my fucking. Really? Look.

Three time all pro NFL defensive rookie of the year in year two thousand five led the NFL in Saxon. Two thousand six as a member of the San Diego now Los Angeles chargers fiftieth anniversary team two hundred and fifty seven tackles in his career. Now, he is launching an extreme fighting league that debuts this weekend. Ladies and gentlemen, lights out shown. Brother. How's it going man nothing for that fucking? I feel like that intro is pretty incredible us giving nothing. I mean, let me tell you from I feel like I was walking out of the tunnel and jumping in the crowd at the same time. I I can respect that a lot. Let's get right into it. This weekend lights out x f extreme fighting debuts. How excited are you water? Some things you might be worried about what are you looking forward to all of that stuff? Let's get right into it. Man, you know, first of all combat sports me like, Ben then my love and passion, even when I was playing football. Right. I was I was kind of working out doing the may doing the all seasons. And I love the sports. So when I retired. It didn't two thousand twelve thirteen I actually was gonna take a fight. I mean, I was I was that much loved the sport. And I love training, and and just love the the other aspects of it. So that ended up happening book for two years ago? I I met up with a former league out here called California, extreme fight. And they were big locomotion. I'm here in California. And I was going every fight and say, Dan these guys legit. But you know, a lot of people outside of their didn't know about him. So what happened was I came in as a partner? And now it's lifetime extreme fighting airing on the Fox Sports west prime ticket may may sixteenth, man. So we've got we got a TV platform at the gate, which is pretty cool. That's incredible. Did you have to invest money in that? Or did they give you a percentage of it? Just because. Does your Sean Merriman in that you could bring attention like this interview like you've done on ESPN things like that? Or did you have to invest in it and buy it out? Basically, it was it was a combination of a lot of stuff. And it'd be honest, obviously, when you have a name that you have a platform to promote stuff like that. That's that's money in the Bank. Right. I mean, that's that's worth the time. But to you know, we we really brought myself in long with my my financial and plus sponsorship to pay the fighters man, get these guys signed up just more than one off fight. We want to keep member for five and seven five at the time. So that's what my input was also bringing the TV platform. I mean, people will be there. See now for the first time these guys what they've been fighting for for very long time. So you know, what I promoted if they'll see for themselves on the sixteen when there's okay? So are these fighters bangers, what are we got? We got guys man. He's got the they love again after we got three titles on the line, actually. And you know, what one of my one of my favorite because I'm a heavyweight Jack may in in my my cue, Tino, you know, these guys don't get after they got a rematch, and they if there's going to be impressive man, these guys like to get out. I never realized like how much I mean shit talk and goes on like, you see it on TV and stuff like that for the DMZ between these guys it's like, Sean, I'm gonna beat the shit out of this guy on my whole ho ho hold on. I'm just I'm here to promote the fight guys. Like, I don't have any side. And then the other guy would GM say watch, I'm gonna do to them. And I'm saying, okay. All right now. You know, nowadays getting a little bit crazy. So I'm just I'm just waiting for everybody sees what we put together. And then win the next biggest promotion, what are you gonna be gonna be Vincent, man? Dana white, or are you going to be a big personality you letting the lights out extreme fighting have their own people. Are you going to be prevalent in this whole thing? Yes. Well, we actually have you know, some are compensated actually just brought over Abba, THEO, harass, you know, the NFL network. She's also fight fan, and she'll be she'll be broadcast someone to fight. I'll be part of the broadcast as well. But you know, for me, man, it's it's really personal promoted the league right because that's number one. But two I'm a fan of the sports still so and I trained with trae with a bunch of the make the train this morning working out goes minimum maid. So it's really a combination of like, you know, I'm not trying to be anybody else. But it's hard for me not to be excited because I still love the sport. And have a passion for it at the same time. I'm excited. How it offers out? A may sixteenth. I how are you doing may may eleven if this Saturday, and then there's going to air it's going to air on the sixteenth. Okay. So speaking of so it's pre taped. All right. Are you in an arena? What are you in theater? Where's it at Burbank? Mariotti vintner, and you know, this thing holds about fourteen hundred we we sold out in a little over two weeks arm. So we we love being there. We love being in just really lost Android in general because you know, it's not the California's really been the hub for him in may and make martial arts. Combat sports for a long time. And I've shit I played here man for like that for me. This is kinda my backyard, my home how much were the tickets and now do side how much tickets were. Did you want like a a wild crowd in there? Or were you trying to make real money off the tickets or is there a fine balance? Now, it was just fine balance. I think of the case I think is a case I think he's a for one seventy five one eighty five four hundred seventy five hundred seventy eight. I five there's still some sold on lifestyle except dot com. But I think he had about thirty tickets left or twenty tickets general admission tickets out in two weeks that was that was all done. I think we've got a few left. But then I mean, once you see the crowd and in energy of the fight Mike is kind of hard because I wanted to promote define it. But at the same time, I wanted I want people to see like, okay. This is my this is the real deal the next big thing. I kind of want to just let it play out this. Let people see funeral. You guys serving beer in the crowd. Was that you serve beer to the crowd. A little bit more than beer. No, go ahead. Yeah. We'll we'll have we'll have a little little going on. And then, you know, my I might have a glass of two when what we've done and everything's wrapped up just really celebrating a big event. I just know people don't enjoy what they're gonna see your a complete businessman right now, we have your lights out merch out here in the office guys wearing now you're launching a fighting league. I mean, how do you? How do you keep track of it? All I in or you worried that you're going to spread yourself too thin or is lights out. Sean Merrimack and handle whatever. The fuck comes. Adam. Do you know man, people always say this thing about if he loves you, don't it's not work. I just want to kind of go in and explain to that what it is, you know, from PG county Maryland lot wedding growth much. I had a nickname lights out when I was sixteen a software in high school. You know carried it to college carrying it to the pros. And now being able to have a brand like lights out not. Only being a payroll, and and a league what walking out here, you send people wearing off because I was just walking by a guy out here in studio city, and he he didn't he didn't even recognize me thought the football player, but he had a lifetime. He couldn't even make the correlation. So I I I knew that I was doing some right? And I love what I'm doing. So I I don't I can't picture myself doing anything else. So as far as spreading thing to thin after I'm done with the gym, and, you know, seven thirty eight o'clock in the morning, whatever time, I'm done. This is what I do. And it's something I love to do. You're done wh-. What time do you start? I like I try to get the gym by six thirty Tom like. You know, I am trying to get done by eight thirty. So I can you know, get to work and start, you know, getting things moving by nine in the more nine o'clock in the morning. I want to be fully up and ready to kick somebody that I hate being tired and swing these whatever they get coming at me. I want to be fully awakened in and out. Obviously your linebacker in the NFL you had to be some sort of meat head. But not everybody continues that after they retire from the NFL, it seems as if you're never going to slow down. You're going to be a meathead forever and a gym. I feel like the gym is probably somewhere that taught you a lot of things in your life. Know, man. No. And I'm gonna meet here in and out. Right. There's no change in that I've been meathead till I can't lifting weights anymore, and then I'll find some other weird ways to lift weights. Don't hurt my shoulders, the lower back up still stay like a meat it. I just think of this like the Jim for me is is a mock keeping it therapy for one. I don't know if they feel covers on gym memberships, they feel it, but his his my violence place, man. Because no matter what I have going on. If I got a ton of stuff going on. I know if I can go crush me out and a half, a two hour workout. I know I'm going to feel better. No matter what in sometimes it's not just about looking. I tried to explain to people all the time, man. Like, yeah. Looking looking good as great feeling great is better. So that's that was always important to me. I'm always told about you fitness people with that nothing tastes as good as feeling. Good feels. And I argue that there are a few pizzas the do. But. I completely respect the fact that you bust your ass or your entire body feels good how old are, you know, thirty four I'll be thirty five and a couple of weeks. Okay. So you retired relatively young. Just like, I did why did you end up calling it quits were you forced out or the county? You felt like it was your time. Now, it was my time. He'll for me. I started to look at you know, what I believe my value was organization. Buffalo wanted me to come back another year when I was done, you know, and they, you know, find the whole entire coaching staff. So for me to start over withholding coaching staff at that point in my career is what's going to happen? And then to if you're not offering something that's so significant financially that isn't guaranteed then it's not worth me being there. I have other stuff to do. I love football football to me is is king and always will be came in five physically could compete at a high level. I was still play. But that was that was donors for me. Like, I was I was done with that. Do you? I heard you say that whenever you are going to go to buffalo. I don't remember if you were traded or sign there, you didn't want to go initially. And then once you got the buffalo you fell in love with the place. Is that accurate? Oh, yeah. Yeah. I was actually a buddy next who the general manager at the time, I hung up the phone on the twice told him. I wasn't coming. I told him I said, buddy. I 'cause he was third. You command the GM wise with with the chargers, and he was one of the guys school had input on draftking there with the charges. And so I knew him. He knew me very well. He he knew that. I'd come out and help the organization to do some things. So he he was gonna have any no matter what I said, buddy. I I don't care. What you guys do? I don't care. What you do? I'm not getting on the plane, and I hung up the phone them twice. I was just wasn't going to go to buffalo until they told me I was gonna get fined ten thousand dollars a day. That's hold them send that damn plane on Thursday. Once you got there though, you realize quickly that they have the mo- one of the most passionate fan bases and all of the ball in the city of buffalo likes the party and have a good time. Is that accurate, man? I mean, it took me about two weeks. And before I felt like your city the first the first week, you get there you act the team as him and everybody row K. What should I say? What should I live which gone? Okay. They'd say the state here closer facility, and then I went out for the first time in downtown. And I they had some big event in you would've thought like it was some parade. And I was like at the time they were always in seven. Oh, and they I'm like, we go only seven able to charge us. Nobody might shake your hand or show up in the stadium. You not even getting talked to and they already at the playoffs at a time. And I looked up my first game. I I, you know, time being there didn't it was seventy thousand people in the freezing cold with their. Shirts off going crazy. And I was like this. I can get used to this. Because these these strains are here. Just that great. Okay. Let's talk about fans being great in not great the Los Angeles. Chargers whenever they moved to Los Angeles couldn't even fill up an MLS stadium. But now they have some success. They might be able to generate a little buzz. What do the chargers, you're a embassador for them? I do believe do they have any shot at gaining real traction in Los Angeles. Yeah. And may have and you know, dissipating you always going to have people to talk bad about the charges read because you've got point you've got some people just pissed off. And they moved in the first place, right? This that that San Diego just don't like LA people and vice versa. Whatever the case is. And you just always going to have this little bright there. So people some people just never want to support team. We'll never really fully support the team. Well, when they first moved. They were only four right? So you you move you got, you know, some people really pissed off and you start only four now you really not gonna have any fans, but then they had that nine game winning streak where they looked like they were going to be a threat in the play offs and then going the postseason or whatnot. And then you know, they didn't happen. But this past year man, I was in every day. You know, I was every game. So I seen with their when you have somebody teams travel. Really, well, you know, if you play Kansas City or Philadelphia my day going to I don't care where you playing we've we played. In with them ten the eggo. I mean, they came in. They loaded up you're saving because they travel. I crazy just how it is. So the fan base is getting there, and it's gonna continue to grow as well to the team keep winning. I think everybody they they talk about bandwagon fans. I think that could be everywhere. Now, granted not in buffalo. You just told that story, but and in Cleveland, there's some places that have haven't been great for a long time in their fans of stuck with them. But you and I both have played in a lot of stadiums. With a lot of tarps over the top of the stadium because they're team isn't winning at the time. And then as soon as they started winning that thing fills up people like to be happy. You can't blame them. You can't blame him and all that people like to be happy. Speaking of happy, are you happy with the way, the NFL is going with the rules changes almost making it impossible to play defense in the NFL these days. Admissions. I wasn't at all. Maybe because I thought they were just being over the top and trying to set an example for other people not to do it. So it was it was really to me it came across his petty. Right. That you can't get a guy this way. You can't do that. You can do that here. Saying that overtime. They kind of backed up and backed also a little bit. They want it to like set the tone early on the show. We're gonna come down to your hard. We're gonna find you for this this, and he checked you or whatever the deal was we're going to do it. But then we're going to back off. So seem like now they're letting guys play a little bit me looking at play with the saints. Right. When the guy the saints Rams, I couldn't be more of a blatant. Like if that happened when they first implemented those rules that got we got thrown not the stadium probably out the city wants that kind of play. But you know, they seemed like backing off one little bit because the fan overall just don't like it. I sat in a commissioners for them at the draft. Did you go to yours? No, I missed mine. you know, I was I was out promoting the doing some stuff for for the league and the for the team as well. Okay. So I respect that. I thought you did a great job with the draft pick, by the way, you got the lights out dancing there. The world needs to see that every once in a while to be reminded of your greatness. I think that's a good thing. I sat in that conditioners Boreham though in listen to a lot of oggi's talk about how the NFL handles retired players. What is your stance on that? You think the NFL does a good job? Or you think there's a little some more to be desired. No big. There's more more needs to be done. You know, we we come a time where we even though we think the contract that crazy crazy right now, which they are getting big see some guys who probably don't deserve the full amount. But they are getting paid. We got contact. But think of the guys before that didn't really make a the the money that we made on they they didn't have the TV platform. We'll have the social media platform. So they're kinda lost out in the Wellman. And and I think that before us to sit back and say, okay, we're cool. We got other stuff to do. But just looking at the overall picture in and how the retired guys are treated overall. It. It's not really that. Great. I think they're getting better. But it's so much to be done. What do you think they should do? For one they got extended health benefits on it. Can't be bothered seventy years. I mean, we we play the sport that possibly disfigured. Something on your body for life. Right. I think that you once you go under the night one time that shoulder ankle, knee, or whatever it is. You're back. It's never the same. Right. So having someone covered for five years or seven years, whatever that ended up being it has to be something that is is is covered much longer. There has to be something that position where if agai struggling financially or something something to get a got back on the scene for whatever that reason it because we spend a lot of our time playing football in and and doing with the organizations in NFL wanted if you needed to do at the time for our jobs. What's did allow us time to do certain other things to have a head start in life as someone who may have what to school and now can work twelve hour days or? Ten hour days doing one thing. So that's gonna give them a head start. Some of these guys don't have that his are. So there's there's tons of things that NFL can still do. I know they're trying they have gotten better with. There's there's tons of work to be done. I agree completely among your side. And even though you skip the fucking forum. That's basically set in there as well. Just leave know we really that message. Just really, you know, we relayed that message. Who's your mentor when it comes the off the field stuff? Like has right now, you have a lot going on man, you you are grinding. I mean every day you wake up at six still and get in the gym. That's insane. But who's your mentor? Business wise, is it somebody from the NFL that you've run into in the past who ran and started doing their own businesses are a businessman that you've run into San Diego, Los Angeles that has taken you under their wing to kind of teach yours at all trial and error. If they should both. But when it comes to have mental right because the pendant on the industry talking about the clothing line and stuff like that. So I got I involved in guys who are really really good and been around exuberant experienced he'll in apparel industry is done hundreds and billions of dollars been in big retail stores and stuff like that. So I was able to to be a Wayne to there for three or four years before I got into the apparent industry will fly either launched a clothing line properly. So I was there not to really make any big mistakes as far as the business side of it, man. I've I've I've been blessed because I had some access to you know, CEO's a fortune five hundred companies, right? A main. I I if I may a call has somebody on my team and make a call that I wanted to meet in the had his idea they've always taken the meeting. Right. So it was really up to me. Once I got there to put together a plan or give an idea that was going to be worth while. And so just having to act of who in what I've done on the football field to being able to use that. Now once I get in the door. I mean, it just at that point came to when I worked he came to one do more than I can in. And you know, I've just proved just I work in and do more than anybody else. That's kind of my my model. Just go hard who are some people respect that who are some people that you like who's one businessman that you called you like a meeting with this person, you get in the door you walk in there. And I assume there's a little bit of jitters because it's like a shark tank pitch almost. But it's with one person it's a whole new playing field pun intended. Who is somebody that you walked in there and was incredibly responsive in a positive way. Then you could have imagined. I mean, you name of it. You know, Kevin who vein who is the head of CA has been been somebody in the past love called on and you know, sat down and met with and it gave me a bunch of air force, Paul Mitchell. It did he Sean combs. Who? Oh, yeah. We're I mean, see a cool. Let's do that Paul Allen awesome. That's a great name. I soon he's done. Great things. Who's at the computer guy? Oh, just a little thing. But let's talk about you and Diddy real quick you Diddy. Bop, two Diddy. How's that come about? You're like, hey, I want to talk about Sean, John clothing. I want to do this. I wanna talk about your vodka. I want to talk about becoming a billionaire. What what does the conversation with Diddy and do tweet him? Do you send like how's it? You. You hit them up on Lincoln. Where do you know, we have we have a great relationship? You know, he's somebody. I look up to that will consider like family, and you know, for me, you you kinda look at okay? So so being nasty, right? You played outside linebacker. Somebody would ask me maybe twenty years ago twenty five years ago, you know, who's your mentor who do you wanna play the game? Like, and I will tell you Lauren Taylor because that's the, you know, that's the reason why wore number fifty six that's why I did all these days because I wanted to be like Warren Taylor won't you have when you talk about your other interests in business and in talking about growth and having multiple you'll you look at you look at. And look at what he's accomplished and having revolt, right? Which is a network, right? Yeah. The vodka. You have Sean John you have colognes when you have someone who has all these things lined up. And like, okay, how the hell you doing this? And and when you have people like that willing to give you their time and show you not only what they did. Because it's not about them talking to you about them letting you have the access to other things. Right. So if he called his president of wherever company revolt or whoever it is. And they say, okay, cool. He made the call for me go meet with him. And that conversation the different when I come to now. And and that's what it that's what it was like, you know, I guess twelve years since I've no thirteen years or then that's just keep just one. I'm just saying that you know, when you have this access. That's what life is really about. That has happened active. You got acted now. It's it's up to you. And what you wanna do with? What you're going to do it. I should've tackled. More people. I should've just tackled. More peter. I should've tackled. More people. I sent a tweet Dinnie tomorrow. See if we link up I heard he just watching his an insane amount of documentaries on people that have been successful in the past. I heard that's like one of his things. Yeah. Not only that and read books. I mean, you go, and you see folks in books and information of anybody who he wanted to let me before he got in the outdoor business in in in that. I mean, he you would tell you to five or ten fifteen how you know people in their industry, you know? And that's that's how he is. That's also where where I learned. Hey, if you want to go into this, get ahold of this person, you know, if you wanna go into that if you can get that person because you can't get you can't go wrong with them that's experience. And now, you got active now, you own the doors open what you're going to do with it. Jesus christ. Well, I'll tell you what I don't know what the hell do with. I'm very thankful. You opened your phone line today. Those it's been incredible conversation, John I hope lights out extreme fighting. Why did you decide to drop the e off Vic stream just because Xs cooler? No, no. It's like not extreme fighting. But it's it's actually extreme right like app Xtreme? I think it really puts emphasis on what extremism because you've got the regular way of film, extreme. But how many people go to find out this out of the and on the sixteenth showing Fox Sports west what that next three minutes. These guys are like the hungry hill. And it's like harmfully sometime in you know, to really focus because I want to get to the fight, you know, we've done with production and commission and the whole non, but I'm like, I wanna see these guys don't them. Because that that's why I'm in it. You know, I wanna promote these fighters promote delete and knows that they're gonna put on a great show makes me. Okay. So let's say he crushes I show crushes and UFC comes up to you and says we'd like to buy your promotion outright. Now. Is there a number in your head? You're like, yeah. You can tell you for this. Anybody say they won't sale is a damn loud. Right. Because there's always I don't care what you say. There's there's a member for everything. But if you're getting into the business to sale thing, he not really gonna make it too far. You gotta you gotta build in in and enjoy what you're doing. And I'm all about the process, man. I actually really really enjoy the process of doing what I'm doing right now. And if I was in the business of doing something, so I can sell it. Then what's the need a building? You know, like you gotta enjoy the plaza in learning failing and and getting back up then going back at it before it even feel good to get on out. Like, you know, somebody coming to you you get a offered him out. That's not gonna feel that good. You just you not much working took to even get it here. Like, you got to like live through this team, man. This is this exciting time for myself. I mean, it really is exciting. Are you expecting some adversity? Whether it's a camera going out of nowhere, low blow happening in the middle of one of your matches something just outlandish that could possibly happen anytime you put two human cockfights in a cage. Are you expecting some sort of adversity? You always have little stuff. I mean, the biggest fear flies is always anybody in in finding a general especially in combat sports. I in may is to bre- weekly enough to the fight. You know, guys get injured we had one or two guys to fall we got you know, we got the field. But you know, we had two guys that go down. And you know, as a part of the sport, you get somebody else in the end his reign into go. And until you don't have to drop a big fight. You get another big fighter who's been waiting notified in physically ready to go. And now they go fight. Let's go I'm excited for you. I can't wait to watch a takeoff. Last question is your favorite football player playing football right now outside of the chargers. Football player. I would I would say Khalil Khalil Mack. All that's a bears fan Guoping back. You kind of he's not really a bears families from Chicago. So his family likes bears win. But you know, I I mean, I got relationships guys all over. But when I when I look and see him play and kind of how I played the game. He's another. Here's another one because I believe he's more complete player than I was when I just watched him play as fun because he called having every time he comes off snap. Like you. Don't know that's going to the play the he'd get the sack or make something being happened. It could be every single one. And that's why it's exciting to watch very humble of you there to say he's more complete player than you. That's you don't hear that a lot from retired players who have an incredible legacy on the football field. I respect the hell out of that. I also respect. The fact you're going out on your own and make him businesses happen here. Also, the fact of your friends with Diddy that's fucking wild, Sean. Thank you so much for joining us, brother.

What's gonna what's going to happen is it's gonna be a lot of guys like so so how retarded twenty eight year I've played bucking a year seven because I miss hold two thousand eighteen or whatever it was. You know, if you look at it guys fuck when you're if you're twenty seven twenty eight years old, and you get done you can still stuck and fight for almost eight nine years. If you if you wanted to Herschel Walker still finding I think, no, no, he's he's done. He fought in before Belcher. But hey, I think he would I saw him just a couple of months ago. Still gotta by the way, you want to line him up with some amateurs, I think get Herschel Walker Knox and people out might sound ex f. Yeah, he, you know, he's fifty some years old. They know he's fifty some years ago. So so we live. Well, we could be if you want mean this could all get out or keep it going. If you wanna talk shit on Herschel Walker would definitely keep it.

But almost saying these dudes are going to be trying to kill each other.

Here's a guy who has a kid just celebrated a birthday and he bends over in front of humans for a living. Joining us. Now, a man who is bent over in front of more. I picks in the history of the NFL from moon township western Pennsylvania, Interscholastic athletic league hall of Famer want to Penn State knew Sandusky. Don't hold it against them starting center for the as cardinals and quays Shipley. Going going really well there per minute. It was really going well, and you had to take it into a different area. I don't understand why we had to go that way. I don't get it. Facts are facts and quay. I don't know. What it what what was that? I don't get it. I don't get it. Well, there's a lot of things I want to say right here. But for the sake of the children, I will stay away from it. I'm sorry. I mentioned that you had nothing to do with that. Obviously, all you are is a great football player who happens to be on a team right now who's head coach was partying with Tom Brady in Louisville just over the weekend. How's the team feel about it? I mean good for him, right? Cliff kings, Cliffe Kingsman believable. More pictures with Tom Brady than I got with with you. Cliff Kingsbury new head coach of the Zona cardinals was a part of the Tom Brady entourage down at the Kentucky. Derby, a lot of people said, wow, what a handsome group of men. The only thing. I thought was well what a life this cliff Kingsbury guys. Currently living gets a head coaching gig gets the number one pick of the draft is a q ship liaises center. Andy parties with Tom Brady on the weekend. This guy's a legend. I mean, just winning news just winning life right now. How is he is a head coach. Good so far. I mean, everything's been really good. It's strictly business. Doesn't doesn't have a whole lot of slogans? If you will, you know, where I'm going now doesn't have a whole lot of. Doesn't have a whole lot of things to say other than let's just play football. And let's let's let's install this offense. And let's keep rolling. Let's get this thing turned around. Let's go back to what you were talking about with slogans. Wouldn't mean, what are you talking about? Keeping me anything the main thing, bro. What are you talking about? Just I just not a huge fan of slogans. I don't like it. I just anybody that comes in with a slogan, usually bad Smyth. That's that's my first my first red flag. My first red flag you come in. Hey, we're going to be this. No, we're not. We're going to be whoever we're gonna whatever we're gonna put on film that you were going to be you can say we're going to be the toughest game. But unless you put it on film. You're not the toughest team. My correct. What if we're the fastest teams might thought about that? You don't know if we're going to be the fastest team. Maybe we'll be the smartest team. Who knows if we're going to be tough? But if you come in with a preconceived mantra, usually never ends. What do you think the cardinals are going to be this year? Thank you. Improved. I think that's the best way to put this. I mean, I think you know, once once this whole thing gets growing and gets installed. You never know what can happen you. And I were a part of a team coming off a two and fourteen season. Nobody thought we were going to be good. Nobody thought anything until you start getting some momentum. You start rolling a little bit before you know, what you're loving and five making the playoffs has Kyle Murray showed up Zony it shows up tomorrow. What do you mean he has a rookie minicamp yet? Now this weekend. Everybody did last week. Now, we there's like it's like a split. I don't know how many teams do it. But some teams go two weeks from the draft some teams go to the next week. We're one of the one of the crew that goes two weeks after his locker next to yours. Do you know, you know, it's I think it's I think it's over you know, he got quarterbacks here. They got the line here. They got. You know, they got it all split up away from us. So you can upset about that. I mean, don't you think you in the guy who's going to be on your taint should be next to each other? I mean, I haven't been next to a quarterback. I don't think everyone a locker room. So I think I think I think we'll just keep it that way. I don't deserve to be over near those guys. They make way too much money. What is what was cliff Kingsbury is meeting? Like, what does he does? He come in. There does. He command the room. Does he call out the veteran does Larry Fitch junior like them? Yeah. I think everybody likes him. I think again like I think as football players, and I think you can attest to this. Right. I mean, I think. All you don't want people just come in and just talking and talking and talking. It's like, hey, okay. Say your points. They would we gotta say let's go out and practice. Let's go out and play a game. Whatever it may be. But let's not sit here and talk about this for thirty minutes. Like, there's no point in doing that. So I think he doesn't great job. Just coming in like relaying his message of the day, relaxing, the schedule. And then let's keep moving. Let's let's, you know, break it up get to your position rooms and go from there. Did you text me from a cell phone break from one cliff kings, Barry's patented so phone breaks? Sure did assured it today during a cellphone break. I did. So what happens like a buzzer goes off in the room? It's like an hour glasses sitting there, and it's like all right, boys. Cellphone break time. How's it work funny? Like, you know, a lot of these a lot of coaches know, say things to make it sound good in the media. Right. I mean, I think like just like a lot of people. I'm sure you've read that whole thing. Whenever though cell phone thing comes out. It's like man is he really going to give these guys so phone breaks. But like. I've never seen anything like it. It's great. That's why like these coaches are. So in tuned to this. It's like our assistant who line coach like you see him like almost like peaking at the clock like every thirty seconds. Like man, like two more minutes. We've got a cell phone breaks. So I'm like watching him. I'm like man, two more minutes. Can't wait for two more minutes. Here we go get another break. Jesus Zito has questions because Zito's in the trenches Xenos been wondering a lot of things all day Z, though, the floor is yours ache. You did you hear Zito's does read from the other show, by the way the last show? No. It was a good. It was those very good saying it was the worst reading they've ever heard in their entire life. People are saying that. What do you think about that? You know? I mean, I'm three ever rebuttal. Yes. I have a problem reading it. I'm Mike sometimes. Okay. It's okay. It's the microphone microphone. I think if the microphone wasn't here you'd be good. Couldn't that be in number one quality on a communications program. Not the reading portion because I'm usually right? Okay. Off the tongue on. Tom. The tongue. Right off the top. Thank you for you bouncing back. We're going to work out. So you slowly get back into that nego that Boise in the trenches. There's a good question. I like this. So I'm basically full kilt. At this point. I'm doing everything I was doing kind of beforehand, but leading up to it. It's coming up in the injury. Most people don't realize that. Like the knee. Once they do the surgery is pretty much fixed. It's just kind of building the strength up of everything around it. So like, it was kind of a Wild Thing. You know as soon as the bandits comes off. And as soon as you see the whole thing like after the surgery, it's literally your quad. You have no quad. You have no cast muscle. Will you have nothing around? The need has no muscle at all. So the next six months is all just building up those areas. So you do a ton of things to build up the quantity on the things to build up to calf and go all those areas up around the knee and all the little abductors, add doctors and all the other, you know, muscles in between kind of are all connected, in some way, shape or form to the knee. And you're kind of built like wreck it Ralph the beginning. If there's one thing that I had was extremely defined from muscle standpoint. I got cats I have. Yeah. You do. Yeah. You and and my left calf was one third of the size of my right calf instantly after the surgery looking like test tube baby out there. Real weird looking. I see Zeno has three more questions written down over there. He read that first one perfectly. We're proud easy to figure much. Are you worried snap to a shorter quarterback? He's five win. He is five ten in one eight asked me the shortest quarterback you've ever snapped. Right. It is one hundred percents Reich. What this is a great question. But the good news is is I know you guys are into the whole college football thing. Get like a bed a little bit, right? Allegedly. All of college football is all shotgun. Correct. Answer very much. So ninety nine percent of what we're going to be doing. What do you think is going to be under center? Shotgun. I think that's why you'd be harder shotgun for the smaller. Guy leaves you less room. Our you just you just put it back there in a window. They can always make the play there. What more athletic than offense of Lyman? Oh, always get it sound like a fucking long snapper for a punt here. Just get back in the five yard radius. You'll be able to catch no problem at all to worry about it. What do you aim for whenever you're doing snapping thing? His crotch. I don't look you. Don't look you just it's just muscle memory at this point. You just don't look you didn't come up. You ready to roll he's tiny though. I mean, this guy is tiny gonna try to shoot it lower. I mean, I'm not changing a thing. So I mean, I hope it I hope it hits them somewhere in the in the window. I really do because I'm not changing things. I keep my wrist. Locked. I I go back as soon as my oboe hit him. I I like oh the ball. That's that's that's that's that's what I do. That's what I've done for a long time. I don't put too much in your head. But is there any thinking on the snap or you thinking about everything else? Everything else. Snaps like if the snap not second nature by the time. You're getting ready to snap the ball. You got a lot of more fucked up issues in your. Hey, we had a guy. I think you remember. We had a guy that couldn't got like the from snapping up became quite a problem. Why April it it funny, man? Like I've been on a couple of teams guys like we'd a guy and I'm like really good friends with where when he was out here. It was it was funny as hell he literally after every snap and practice he'd snapping as soon as the play was over like he couldn't look back fast. We're wasn't. We're what where's the ball? That's gotta be terrifying. If after every single snap your like shit where to go oh shit where to count. I couldn't even fat. That would be that'd become quite a terrible thing. Because it's every single play. Not only do you have to worry about that. But also, you got Aaron Donald potentially a guy who trains with knives about the bull rush, you run your ass over. Yeah. That's that's if that's not the biggest problem, you're worried about getting ready to snap a football might as well. Just hanging up to send your. Great question. There's you know that you last question. Sure. Sure. What if you all why were we invite to your daughter's birthday? But that's a great question because I wasn't invited either. What if you all? It's fucking first birthday party his daughter's gonna remember forever. I assumed that this is something I would be invited to turns out. None of us were invited Zito in the trenches wasn't invited. Nick Maroteaux hostess show, that's hockey talk with achey wasn't invited tie. Schmidt. Who answers the phone every time. Make you calls wasn't invited.

There's this thing called the United States and hin between United States. There's these things these borders. Right. And in the borders. There's there's these things called states anybody that people that live in the state of Arizona, what friendship my own parents were not even invited to the spanked. They work. Oh, my own parents as a cue change now that he's got his fifth number one draft pick about to stand behind them won't even. My parents are coming out here in two weeks. So I can go on vacation.

Hey, I got to meet you. Yeah. Yeah. Foxy actually, you can answer this to Pat. I'll I'll answer I actually real question that what's it like getting a new head coach? Well, it's like you gotta prove snowfall over again. Everything changing. It's like you're a rookie. Again, it really is like your rookie again for me. It was like I was a rookie. I I wasn't old enough to be considered a veteran because I wasn't in the Reggie Wayne Adam Viteri world, but I wasn't young enough to be like, oh, yeah. I don't have a clue what I'm doing. And I had an arrest on my record at the time, and my Twitter was pretty lit, which they didn't love. So for me. It was like I had to prove myself all over again AAC us been through forty five head coaches. I'm excited to hear his. No, I agree with you. And and it was interesting last year coming in, you know, coach Wilkes coming in because. Ultimately, you there's nobody upstairs that is going to form an opinion without watching film. Right. So once coach will watch film like then like, okay, cool like he liked. He liked what he saw on film about me. So boom, like I'm already in like his good grades as well. Clipping very don't going to go back and look at two thousand sixteen two thousand seventeen tape right? So. U-turn on two thousand eighteen there's no eight Shipley out there. So it's like, and then we're going to go not as and oh, he's not doing that either. So then my my I kinda. Thing that he's going to really c training camp.

You're two colts new head coach guy hated me. It's kind of been a string of luck. Good. I have. So I'm just waiting on a potential contract in this business somehow and an entire new regime coming in the week before it's supposed to be renewed. That's kind of seems to be the way it's been going for the good. The good thing about your current situation. Is you are your own head coach, you're goddamn, right? A M. Hey, you're damn right. I'm put me into. Yeah. I'm putting me in the goddamn play. That's a good situation to be in me. I'm the guy that like does not look fantastic and shorts. So it's like, hey, we're going to go out for like off see the work. I was like who's that like five eleven guy was like a belly. That's like sticking out like, oh, that's her starting center from the last couple of years. Oh, really tease. We'd better get someone else. Yeah. Yeah. He's been on fourteen different teams.

Did you did you hear a pop or anything? Or was it just like you? Oh, yeah. Everything you hear about that thing, you you you feel the pop you feel the instability. You don't feel any pain though, because running through the ACO ligament is a nerve. And if you tear the ACO, you tear the nerve. No, you actually, you actually feel no pain at all. Interesting little tidbit there guys. And is this little fun. Fact. I bet you jeopardy James knew that are you watching that fucking guy. He's still winning. Well, they had a teacher break here.

It's what we live for especially when they go to like, double OT, stay up all night and watch the rewards. Rewards real treat all free. Free free hockey. And that's all you talk the NBA still happening. Yeah. It is. Isn't it? That one team played one basketball game against that other basketball team and everybody was like oh that basketball teams done for because the one guy went out the night before the game. And now yet now he's bashing bought a bounds. Every give passing another bound saying he's got an upper respiratory issue. What was that Zeno respiratory issue? He's upper respiratory. I'm. Much.

Oh, he just didn't have the jersey on now that it. He was there with what's his face the guy from Clemson. Yeah. Daboh by the way, what kind of jumper really ever shown them play two on two on the court before the game. I guess he was all sweaty. So they're playing like a real pickup game in there. Fucking smooth little jumper from old data wide receiver. Alabama people forget, they do you know what I mean? And so smart on his part. What's that? Guess hanging out. Pounded up with Drake. He needs to do is go through a recruits hausners. Hey, Drake is right. Make sure those two together. Have you ever heard of this guy? He's coming to every game next year Aubrey shit. Yeah. No. He won't be putting on Clemson jersey as we all know about curse. Now. Don't we? We do dry. You don't drink. Okay. We'll put that away. Here's me drain. The fuck and wet jumping to Alta. Raptors basketball court you ever heard the NBA you're hurting MB good for that. Everything's just swin to this college coaches, just like us trying to swindle his wife. That's all college. Go trying to swindle high school kids, which I respect making millions of billions off in that good for them who's gonna win the NBA Golden State, Golden State. I mean people are saying he lost it though. I mean, Klay Thompson is not happy on on. They need some talk about who. Then BA. Well, let's give them something. Let us. Bath Halla band. Word love. Yeah. That's what I'm talking about. Executor Maryland NBA NHL in college football, talk, you're on the day show. And m may talk. We're sport show gang. Also. We're psychologists in counseling show. You heard us do a little marriage counseling there for q. Dr Phil don't do that shit. Does he want to be assigned show jerk? Did you hear about the story about NASA? They Renison Malaysian to stop a asteroid that was gonna collide with earth. But actually, how do we do? It was it went from six hundred one from a fifty thousand the one shot down to a six hundred percent snuffs or cut this. It went from a. From fifty thousand percent chance to an almost certainty than asteroid six hundred miles wide was going to collide with earth and in the simulation. They shot rocket ships at it broke off a piece then Atlanta directly over New York City. New Yorker, right? No. They get killed. So that's the movie though. That's actual. That's that's the actual movie one way to stop that. And it's Harry stamper. Fucking melt Bruce Willis. Yeah. That's the only way. So it was supposed to Lind on over Denver. That was the original target. They're like, we'll shoot spaceships at it send it off its trajectory a piece about two hundred miles wide. I think broke off and fell out part of New York in the simulation. So we're we're simulating as if we know what the asteroids may. Okay. That makes sense. I'm happy. We're just doing that. This is one that all the powers would collide income together. Right. Like putin. It'd be on the phone. Oh, yeah. Yeah. We fucked. All this bullshit. They went to fuck with down here with my oral everything we need to fuck with wrong coming down from sky recall, Jim call in America, by the way. What do we do? How do they know what the circle of the earth that it's going to hit us? I don't think it matters though. I think if that thing collides with earth, it's global wipeout. Oh like when you dig. Other side. Yeah. 'cause that'd be the ultimate shovel. Because they actually when I was in L A at the Griffin observatory they have a thing where you can like type in like how wide the asteroid is. And like it would show you like its impact on the earth. Let me tell you what it is about fifty times smaller than that. And we're still talking global wipeout. Hold on. Are we are we better? If it lands in Denver in Indiana. We'd better in Denver, New York doesn't matter or dead either. They said the six hundred foot what asteroid if it hit in Denver would cause unsurvivable conditions that even grains of sand would explode. Exactly. I'm not worried about no little pieces of Sam blown up. What's just like little snap crackle pop. Like, the rock pot thing the pasta rock things. We're not worried about that. You let me know whenever fucking mountains are going to blow up. That's why oh, buddy. It's all going the Rockies dead on. What are these coming? When's this thing Thomann, oh, it was simulation there? Just prepping just in case. So this isn't a real thing. No, oh, good joke. Why would you even bring that into my life? I just thought I was potentially going to have to dig a fucking watch McCall it it escape room. Well, now, he's still might this. What you know? Hey, we're not as prepared as we thought we were these same people telling me that I got seven years left on earth or whatever. No. This is the what's it called the global defense initiative or something like that? These are the people that had that show where they had the the the escape route this is the digs in the survival slanted -tary defense conference. These people are paid on NASA and FEMA they're paid by the government in space agencies around the world. I think we should start doing us. All right. Let's say a fucking bird from. That is two hundred seventy five feet wide decided to come down bird from avatar flies in eats, all of our fish and ac-. Now, we're gonna fish shortage in decides to leave. How do we fix the problem? How do you shoot Burgum forgets there? Oh, it's indefensible impenetrable bullets. What do we do now? Oh from relations that cost ten million dollars and see what we can do fucking bird that potentially fly from outside galaxy that we've never heard of apparently we got a shot and twenty Twenty-nine of a bird. No, there's a potentially hazardous asteroid. We'll get that thought forward to but twenty twenty nine where he dead right because the people are saying that black holes going to suck us up in twenty twenty seven not even that the earth is done in what ten years a rook Casey's breakfast, though at twelve on a rock. I think said ten I think it was originally twelve and then we'll short though beta. Trusted. He's a liar. So he's going make until two thousand twenty seven. Well, I think the game of telephone happening got dropped down the ten years twelve years, and then how long twelve years ten years on eight years. Yeah. That is what happens it's game telephone. So we're not gonna make to that thing. The big bird coming in avatars coming out though. Yeah. Twenty seven last week got pushed back another year. Let's because it's never happening. It's been pushed back every single year since like what twenty fourteen there's talking like this Travolta's Godley movie. That's that's the way you guys were talking about this as if it's not going to happen. It's a little fishy when every single year, the movie gets pushed underwater film. That's why it's fishy. Yeah. See? Z? Can argue that. Thing about CGI underwater. So you mean? With the advancement of technology James Cameron, only once that movie to get better and better and better. He's taking care of me, the die hard fans of avatar in Pandora. He's using all the unobtainable that he can obtain to make this movie the best possible movie of all time, somehow outdo avatar one. Which is what he's going to do with the next six ones at are released over the next forty five years. So we needed to be the other day in the office and urine here doing some. So wanna bring you into it? Now keep annoyed zone. Why do you why do you think that avatar the highest grossing movie of all time, right? Why do you think it doesn't have like the cultural impact that other movies that made it to money like that do because of the amount of space in between the movies, like if they would've went on a full tour every single month about how the avatars or if they do like a full costume thing in New York City and try to stay relevant like the other promotion marketing, all that's James, merchandise toys, everything James Cameron just goes ahead, and drops it and says greatest movie of all time main disappears for few years. He's like up book, nother greatest movie of all time. We're going to do that. Because he doesn't wanna consume people's lives. You know, all those other movies. People get consumed by their entire led to respect the George Lucas. That was his all models make the movies. We he's gonna make money off the toys exactly James Cameron's. Like, I'm gonna make a good enough picture, the video gonna movie gonna film that we don't need just suck every dollar out of people went for every other thing vote avatar to comes out that's going to be a highest grossing movie that's gonna be won by a billion, probably four, billions takeout avengers. Excuse me. They finally pass him. No, excuse me on its way. They're like five or six hundred million dollars shortfall going to Disney excuse me. Avengers is going to be the highest grossing movie of all time. So I've talked too much goes aspirin. How avatar to is going to end. How do you think? I don't know. True. That's how I know that avatar to will beat vendors one or whatever this one, you know, what I mean. Yeah. Absolutely. Because what happened with the vendors movie house ask Super Bowl week? What's gonna happen in February movie? Didn't come by the way, there's a video on the internet of me predicting exactly what happened in adventures and people got mad at you for that matter me, they're telling me that I ruined the movie know someone at studio. I don't know. What's gonna happen team? Avatar by Jacob Sali bringing end up in. He's probably gonna somehow get on the bad side of some more avatars in this one has to be seen. But I think it's just the I think it's like almost all avatars. Like, I don't know if there are actually like any like humans acting Jacob sullies an avatar though, he completely transform thing. And he was in the unobtainable thing, and they did the the tree and they did homage. How will we that whole thing? And then he became a thing. And then lady couldn't get it. So he is obviously going to lead his drive. They're going to have a kid him an old old biter you're going to have a kid then they're going to probably have to battle against some other avatar Trump for dominating. I can't get on board with the civil war. I think there's going to be an war. Awesome. Thank you. Did that the vendors was that that it's a war? But the vendors aren't real people. Thoughts thoughts near the avatar? We went we were there wing Pandora. Yeah. We were we're impact Dora on a jet jetski looking thing. Open the box excuse me Pandora's box. What's open Pandora's box. Let's do it. Let's dive inside those adventures civil war. Cool who's flying on the birds? Alkan the navy not the knobby there. It is. I have no idea what's going to happen. But I don't like it. It's been delayed. It's hard to been delayed James Trump that fucking movie. Just so we can get done. You'll get them one times. Right. He was acting fishy. When I saw him in the airport. He was. Oh, he don't juice walk by. Well, it took me about like fifteen or twenty minutes to realize whether or not it was actually James Cameron was standing behind him in a commercial fuck in public airport. He was flying to China. It's probably the only one that you can't really pay for your good James Cameron could do that for sure. I don't know. I'm sure he I'm sure he had nice accommodations going over there. But what he did do was spend about fifteen hundred dollars at the little Hudson news place. Oh, yeah. All on time magazines. What grabbed every fucking time magazine in that place? Same time magazine just bought them. No separate copies like like space travel. One was I mean, he was he was definitely putting in some research. Spoiler alert. Yeah. That's what I said. I mean, I remember their travel all that way to get depend Dora. So you can only imagine at some point they have torture going to come back do avatars in America probably in earth. Probably not the next one. But no, probably the next one. Maybe the next one space travel. You said he's reading about it. He's reading about space travel and deep sea stuff. All right. We just put it together. Haunts to in the office. And that's what happens to be breaking news, though, things are breaking. So they avatars are traveling back to earth because they got unfinished business with those fucking the military guys walking into the things. And then that's all they end up in the ocean. Probably because every time you come back from space. You do that little. Umbrella thing in the notion, that's what they're doing so much figure out. What's down there? Enough. Get into that.

"What I learned in that is that a you've got to find ways to prepare yourself. You can't always rely on people just in general in life not in that situation because I think everyone was doing the best they could we just didn't have what we needed and but I learned that I need to do my own preparation. I can't rely on people to prepare for me if there's something I need. I need to find a way to ask for it and explain why this is important Beyond just saying, well, what do you mean you don't have this stuff? Like this is something of course. I thought everyone would know like no you need to advocate for yourself a little bit and if you don't feel comfortable in a situation tell somebody off. All right. Welcome To The Past sealed. I'm your host Kevin Harris. My Coast is Lauren. Tashman. Hi, everybody. Welcome to the path distilled and we're so excited to have a me. Well, she's the broadcasting manager for the Tennessee Titans and the coast of Titans off access. Welcome to the show Amy. Hey guys, how are you? Well, thanks so much for joining us. Could you tell everybody a little bit about yourself and kind of what you're doing now? Oh, yeah. Well, I am as you said the broadcast manager for the Tennessee Titans, which is a fancy way of saying that I'm just kind of always around I host a variety of shows former Tennessee Titans digital team. I do their TV show as you said tightened all access podcast the OTP the official Titans podcast variety of radio shows and then digital content throughout the week, and I'm also their sideline reporter on Sundays for Titans radio. So we're always busy. There's never a dull moment, but home It's a lot of fun. We have a great time. So when are you going to start making something of your life ten to fifteen years off? Your plate is full. How did you first get involved in what you do? Take us back to the beginning. Oh gosh. Well, so I got my degree at the University of Missouri in Communications and right after school. I ended up kind of locking my way into getting an internship with the Baltimore Ravens doing public relations so long that is where I spent the 2011 season and in 2012 The Internship there ended got another internship in Indianapolis with the Indianapolis Colts money spent a season there. It was awesome. And then 2013. I kind of was tricked into getting this job with the Titans, but I interviewed thinking that it was a month. Public relations job and that's why I've been doing the last two years and they said yeah, it's a it's a PR job, but we'd like to have someone with some on-camera experience team who can relieve our radio host when he does different shows and things and sometimes he has too many appearances and if there's someone who could help him out, we'd appreciate that. Well, I had worked for a TV station when I was in college and so I had like a very sketchy real of some sort. Like it wasn't anything professional or impressive and I hope whatever I gave to them to spend too strong, but they looked at it and called me in for an interview and ended up hiring me and on my first day I came in and I'm like ready to write press releases and you know, mayonnaise all of these different interactions with players and coaches and the media and I'm really I feel like I know what I'm doing they're like, well if you're going to be one of the faces of this franchise, we should probably make you like a Twitter handle in the social club. Media presence and I was like, I'm sorry a what you want me to be what for this team? Okay. Sure. So we just kind of went forward and there was a huge learning curve and I've just been trying to tread water ever since and I've been very lucky there. A lot of people that have been very patient with me and have taken the time to really critique. I teach me along the way and so here we are. This is my eighth season with the Titans. Wow, and it's been great. I wouldn't change it for anything else. I guess back to that initial interest you had in becoming Journalist or broadcaster. How did that first get started? Well, you know, so when I started college I was in political science wage. That was my degree. And so I'm taking all these political science classes and I think this is great. I'm going to be a political campaign manager. I'm going to be in Washington DC and it's going to be spectacular but I start looking around and all of my classes and everyone's got their will laptops and they're on like the New York Times and this crazy blog and this poem Insider magazine and I'm on like ESPN adjusting my fantasy football lineup and I was like, it seems like we don't all have the same interests outside of these classes interesting. So one Friday night. I was sitting at home in my dorm at the time and I'd like ordered a pizza and pub She'll scouting combine is on. I don't know if you've ever seen the NFL scouting combine. It's basically C-SPAN for sports. Like there's not a whole lot of sex appeal to the NFL scouting combine. Unless you're like really into it and I am so my dad calls me on a Friday night and he's like hey, what are you doing tonight? I was like I had a pizza come in the combines on I'm taking notes and he was like, have you ever thought that maybe you could go into sports like that might be a better option for you and it just never had occurred to me that working in sports. In fact, he was even like an auction you were a player or you were a coach and everything else just kind of I guess happened. I assumed so it wasn't even familiar with what that could look like, but I knew Sports reporters and sports journalist. So I end up switching my major to journalism and started working at the local TV station, which was yep. Part of mizzou's kind of program but I got in and started working on football programming so high school football games we go and shoot footage of that and bring it back and edit it all together and put put the highlights together for our anchor and so in doing that I kind of ended up being a production assistant. So I cut up different pages for different things. And then I was producing a Sunday sports show an hour long show as a sophomore which isn't really something you did but I just spent a lot of time there and at the same time I got a job with the football team helping them with recruiting and oh my gosh, I spent hours and hours logging tape of kids who blushed their hearts birth so excited and wanted to play at the University of Missouri, but we're not that wasn't going to happen, but I would cut up the tape and give it to the coaches for them to evaluate and I mean my whole world Suddenly became just football football football. So when I graduated from college, I was like shoot I guess I've got to find a real job and a friend of a friend of a cousin mom's boyfriend in high school hooked me up with one of the guys who is still working PR for the Baltimore Ravens and we kind of did an informal interview and the rest is kind of History. So what was your role with them with the Ravens? I was oh my gosh. I was an intern took an intern's intern like I had no idea what I was doing. I roll up to the Baltimore Ravens facility, which is But they call it the castle and it is so much more than that. It's like the most beautiful Ski Lodge in the woods type of facility you've ever seen and I was like, oh, this is the NFL like this is it I've arrived and I get in there and I don't know how to do anything. Like I can't write a press release. I don't know who's on the team. Like I was not a big fan of the Baltimore Ravens before I got this job. I don't know if I'm allowed to say that but I wasn't and so they were like, hey, we had eight pro bowlers last year. Can you name any of them? I you know, they're like, well, I mean just guess Ravens players and you'll probably hit a couple cuz it was like Terrell Suggs Ray Lewis Ray, right? Like people that any wage usually football fan kind of would have known in 2011 and I was like, I can't name a person on this team. I'm sorry. I I knew nothing and so I pretty much what time Is just relegated to sharpening pencils for the offensive lineman so that they had something to write with in their meetings. So for the first probably three months the majority of my jobs was pencil sharpening and just try not to get yelled at like that was my life and slowly I started to learn how things work. Then I started to pick up on Thursday. Okay. This is why it's important to proofread our work and these are the ways that you need to interact with people and these are the types of things we need you to do and I earned more responsibilities kind of as I went off, but the thing you have to remember about that year also is that the NFL was in the middle of a block out. So there were no players that were no coaches when I started they basically said we don't know if we're going to have a role for you or not, but we'd like for you to move to Baltimore just in case so I did. So I spent kind of six weeks just kind of kicking around Baltimore waiting for this job to start that I didn't know how to do and it turned out that there was a season and everything was fine. But we I mean worked thrown into the fire. So we just had to start doing things and I think I messed up enough things in those first couple of days that I was given the pencil sharpening job. And but I mean, it was a humbling experience. It was great. I learned how to take criticism. I learned how important it is to ask questions. I learned so many skills that now that I've been doing this nine years later. It's It's much easier for me to not only do my job but being uncomfortable situations and know that I'm not going to die because I mean that's a legitimate fear. Sometimes is being in an uncomfortable situation where you're like, oh my gosh any minute now, I'm going to get fired and you just know you can feel it in your soul. Like I'm not doing well, but there's ways to redeem yourself and there are a characteristics and values that people will see in you even while you're failing and so having that experience and learning that it's not the worst thing that can happen to you failing in front of people who don't respect your trying to earn and so it was a good experience anyway, but I aged thirty years and ten months. I have two questions about that. Did you recognize the leap of faith moving at the time without knowing if it would happen and did anyone take you under the wing and kind of help guide you out of the situation or did you kind of happen upon that yourself well to answer your first question at the time. No, I didn't realize kind of how crazy would I was doing was? I was Twenty-One and got a job. Like that's all it felt like to me and so there was someone was going to give me money to do something and that felt like a really big deal. So they hired me on a Tuesday said we need you to get out here quick as you can I moved from Columbia, Missouri to Baltimore Maryland on Thursday. Like I just packed up my stuff and left and yeah, I still kind of can't believe my parents. Let me do that like that felt like a pretty huge adjustment for them and I don't really know how they were okay with that situation. But yeah, it was just it just felt like this is what you do looking back on it. I kind of can't believe I did it was so cool about the whole thing. But yeah, I just kind of got out there and figured it out. And then yes, there were tons of people who helped me out along the way there were a lot of people my boss was great about pulling me into his office and he would firmly but nicely is that make sense like in a way that still just scared the bejesus out of me, but like you could tell he wanted to be helpful and he would kind of odd try to direct me try to guide me and there were a bunch of coaches on that staff who I still kind of keep in touch with and who were very aware of like realizing that was so far away from my family for the first time. So like taking me in and inviting me over for holidays and making sure that I was okay and really asking about me and investing in me. And so that was a really big deal and years later. I ended up working with some of those guys again. And so that's really fun. The NFL is just so small. You see the same people over and over again and so having established Of those relationships where people really like took an interest in me and I took care of me and got to know my family and that's been a big deal all along the way but yeah, there were so many people who helped me and kind of made sure that I didn't hurt myself and so you're sharpening pencils for the offensive lineman for meetings. And and you said your next month's Indianapolis. Yes, it was in Indianapolis. And one of the coaches who had kind of watched over me in Baltimore was Chuck Pagano who ended up being the head coach for the Indianapolis Colts the next year. So that was I think he was kind of helpful in getting that job and getting another internship which gave me another chance to learn and kind of be in a new environment and change them do some different things but having a clean slate was kind of nice too. So I got to not be the intern who didn't know how to do anything and could only sharpened pencils. I got to be dead. Person who had done it for a year. So I was already a step ahead. And I mean that was a great experience. It was so good to get to know to see how another NFL team works because there are so many people who are fortunate enough to get a job in the league, which is so great, but they only see how one team operates and so you think that this is Law and so being able to see a lot of different teams operate the way that they move has been a really cool experience. That's that's one of the greatest things I think about my journey so far is that I know there's a lot of different ways to do things and that there are a lot of different ways that the themes that are all in the same space operate and I think that's been really valuable. You said it was from Indianapolis that you ended up with the Titans. It was it was I ran into someone at a Super Bowl that I had so basically NFL for major events, like the scouting combine the superbowls things like that. They used to I don't know if they still do this now, but they used to take like internet basically as volunteers because they needed so many hands on deck for those major events. And so I volunteered to work a Super Bowl after the 2012 season wage. And so I'm met a bunch of people and you're just networking your mind off like it's crazy. It's like the Hunger Games for NFL intern like you're just trying to impress somebody and if someone else eaten by a bear that's their problem. And so I had ended up making some connections and someone who was a writer for the Tennessee Titans said, hey, we have this job that's opening up dead. May or may not be interested in it. But here's the information. I'm happy to pass your stuff along. And so that kind of got the ball rolling and the rest is history. At that point, you know, I guess throughout these first two internship experiences. You had did you realize at that point that you wanted to go down this career path, or is that more like you were just kind of seeing what came up as you went throughout these experiences? I definitely knew that I wanted to stay in the NFL but also very clear life. I was very aware of the fact that every season could be my last season because all I had seen was how Impermanence. It was like nobody's promise anything you see it with coaches. You see it with players, but you also see it with staff. Like there's a lot of turnover in some of these steps, especially the same level position cuz it's hard. I mean the hours are weird. You don't get holidays off your run into it 30 different things and it's kind of high pressure. So a lot of people just get tired cuz frankly you can get paid sometimes a lot more money to be in a different field. And so I am always kind of knew that yes. The dream is to stay in the NFL. The dream is to be this big PR executive. Like that's that's why I always wanted to do I never thought about the broadcast part of it. Like even when I started this job, I kind of saw it as a foot in the door to get back to PR at some point, but I've always wanted to be in the NFL. I mean from the moment. I started doing things at this level being part of this. I mean the National Football League is it's the top when it comes to sports. It's just you can't get any better than this month. And so I always wanted to stay in this Arena and be a part of that but I mean, I've also just been taking every second then I can get you know, every experience every moment the amount of things that I've squirreled away as like mementos of this cool thing that I did just in case that never happens again, like my parents basement is full of like papers. I've snatched and books that I've stolen and like pictures of things that I'm like randomly just squirreling away because God I don't ever want to forget the moments that I've been able to have. I mean, it's it's an unbelievable experience. So I want to be able to capture all that and just say yes boss many things as I can so that I don't forget what a cool Journey I've been on and if it lasts ten more years phenomenal I'm here for it. But if it doesn't, what grade were opportunities, I've had you know all those excuse me were those amazing moments still coming as frequently as they did at the beginning cuz I can imagine when you first got into the league almost every day. When was novel and exciting and then as time has gone on it probably takes a little bit more to kind of create that sense of excitement. Yes, and no choice know there were some things that definitely walking down the hallway being like Oh my gosh, that's so and so like that was a really cool thing, but that's still kind of happens. Sometimes the Tennessee Titans had globo as their defensive coordinator a couple of years ago and realizing like, oh my gosh, Dick LeBeau knows my name like that was a cool moment on like I mean God, yes, the day-to-day staff of like going out to practice and it's very easy to kind of get Jaded by some of the things that we get to do. But I mean the level of excitement is still there on a Monday. I I don't know if everybody knows this but I cried during every single national anthem no matter what it's why I wear sunglasses so much honest-to-god, but it's it's a very true. Emotional like oh my gosh, where am I standing right now? And so that stuff is still the same game day is still exciting. It's still pretty cool to walk into an NFL training facility every day as your job like to walk through those doors to have the relationships that you have to stop and realize and we try to hold each other accountable and make sure that often get so jaded that they forget what they're doing like forget why you're here forget the amazing opportunities you're having so we try to kind of nudge each other sometimes more often. We are like this is pretty great great. But I mean it is funny to sometimes be like, there's a group of people. So I've worked two Super Bowls 2 and 1/2 really and needs to be like, well, I'll never go to a Superbowl again unless the Titans are playing it like, oh what a problem to have and like I understand some of those things as well, you know, like some of the goofy things that are That are problems for me or some of the things that drive me crazy or you know, just certain personalities that you deal with and you're like, oh that guy drives me crazy. It's like, you know that guy, you know what I mean? So you never take it for granted things kind of shift in what gets you really excited and what you kind of just accept as your day-to-day reality, but it's I can see why the question would be. Like does it ever get old? It doesn't? And have you adopted a strategy for you? Obviously been there for a long time you talked about how nothing is guaranteed in any of the NFL. Have you taken an approach where I'm trying to get better every year or anything along those lines? We've been really fortunate in that. There are a lot of people around us and I say us like our digital team are broadcast team. I work directly with our the voice of the Titans my teeth and so we're really lucky that we're given the opportunity to try a bunch of different things off like the podcast that we have right now. It's in its second year the OTP and I think I had been bugging him about it for about four years. And I mean when we when I started talking to him about he was like, oh know what a podcast is. So we had to like get over that hurdle before we could get over some subsequent hurdles to start the podcast off. But that was something that creatively we just I wanted to try and once he realized you know what it was we were able to kind of get other people on board and am now we have this thing that's been going for two years and it's been so much fun and it gives us a chance to meet a lot of different fans in a lot of different places. And so that's one example of new challenge and I've only been doing Sidelines for the radio for two years. This will be my third season. So that's been a new challenge watching game in a completely different way and kind of changing my perspective of what's important what's valuable information that I need to retain what needs to get out of the way kind of the way that I look a game in the way that I'm processing information as it's coming to me that's always been very interesting and interesting and a new challenge. So there's a lot of different things that dead. Change from season to season so I'm never really in a spot where I feel like I don't have something that's challenging to me or that I'm creating or trying to learn a new skill or because there's nothing worse than watching Yourself fast, whether it's on a TV broadcast or when you're editing a pass or on a radio show. So the fat I'm assuming that at some point in my life. I'll become comfortable with it and I will like it and like that's the goal but the game is to be doing things well enough that I can stand to watch it without cringing. So I guess that's the carrot that I'm chasing and I come back and I constantly talk about that. We don't like listening choice to see pictures eating right like it's absolutely terrible. And so I assume that at some point when I get okay with it, I will either just dead Num, or I will be just the greatest broadcaster of all time. So I guess that's the ultimate goal that you're kind of chasing. But I mean, we have so many different things and so many different creative Outlets that we get to use and kind of play with that. You're always flexing some muscle in your brain that you never thought you'd be working and that's that's a lot of fun to to always have some sort of bizarre new challenge. I don't know about you but I've discovered that there are a few words that I can see eight and odd way. Did you have that experience? Oh my God the words that come out of my mouth. Most of the time are just concerning like listening to your own self speak and I have a problem where I think the words in my brain are faster than my mouth so I get come out of it and then it tongue-tied a lot. So that's the problem. But I also use a lot of words and phrases that my mother dead. And my parents like I speak like my parents more than I ever knew and it's just horrifying my dad will listen to like a game show or something and I'll hear I'll get a text from him during the show. That's like, oh my gosh your your mom and like I I can't take it back. I don't know. I don't know what to do. So that's been crazy. And I I tend to when I'm not broadcasting have a bit of a sailor's mouth and so Translating that sometimes the words that I say so that I won't say the words. I'm not supposed to say you're like, what is that word? What did you just say? So yeah, I feel you on the pronunciation thing if I may I get you. I'm at my mom. You talked like my mom. I was doing a the corniest version of the cuss word. I could find may be dead. So the I was also intrigued by something you said about when he was switched to sign light or added the sideline reporting there was a time when you were trying to discover which part for more important and this is just the scientific side. That's fascinating me. How did you go about getting better at that? You don't mind talking a little bit about that. Well, absolutely. Well when I moved from my first whatever six seven years in the NFL, I was watching from the Press Box so I had quite literally a bird's eye view of what was going on on the field. And so what I was doing a lot of was I'd watched the play I'd watched the play again cuz there's a TV in the Press Box that is on like a two-second delay. So you get two shots at it. You get it on the field. Then you get delayed version on the TV and then I would kind of be scrolling through Twitter watching commentary and being with the other media members were saying Well, once I moved down to the field, I realized very quickly. I can't see the play everybody on the field is much bigger than I am. They got physically I cannot see it because there's giant human standing in front of me so I can see maybe when guys are on the line. I can see three maybe four of the guys closest to me, but I can't see the other side of that field. I have no idea. So I'm watching the play button in a very kind of casual way. What I what I'm watching even more wage is player interactions on the sidelines which code just talking to what players what is this guy saying to that guy? Is there an injury like that's what I'm watching the field for I'm watching me watching ankles. I'm watching guys heads like that's what I need to look for and it took me a while to realize that no one from the booth during the play is gonna be like Amy, would you suck? Out there like one you don't care about my evaluation during the game afterwards on a different show maybe during the game know. So what page is not something that's important for me to be watching. They are going to ask me who it was that went down on that play what his injury is is this offensive lineman fighting with them running back because of a play that just completely imploded like those are the things that I need to be watching. So it might kind of focus went from X's and O's I need to know what's happening to more relational. I need to know these guys and their personalities. I need to understand that that guy when he's rolling around on the field may not be as hurt as if that guy is roll around on the field like that means two different things and so learning that and translating that then to what I'm watching and practice is also very different. So no song What formations are maybe different to understand what that means to a certain guy? And I mean Derrick Henry's in the wild cat does that mean that the took her back doing a bad job? No, it means that they wanted to do this thing for that guy over there and it's understanding how some of the pieces of the puzzle fit together at more of a relational level than the home or football analysis that I kind of thought. They were going to be asking me for so it's changed the way that I see the game in a lot of different ways. Through the week Monday through Friday at practice. But then also Sundays on the sidelines. It's really interesting. You mentioned that when you came into a job you were thinking it was kind of going to be something different or away but to get back into PR and then you mention some of the the kind of new challenges or opportunities that you've had their wage what have been some of the highlights and lowlights throughout your career thus far. Oh my gosh. Well, there's no way more highlights than lowlights. Definitely. I mean the highlights for sure are the team going on and incredible playoff run last year. I mean so many of my career highlights are football. Like they're tied to football moments almost because the team's success on the field drives what we're able to do in every possible way. So the team having two huge upset win on the road during the playoffs in 2019-2020 to go to the AFC Championship game as total underdogs. It was amazing the amount of content that we were able to produce the way that players were interacting with each other with us. I mean, it was just you could feel it in the air that something special was happening. And so that was such a moment different winds have I mean then just Monumental the Titans beating the Jags to go to the playoffs in two thousand. I guess that would have been off. 2017-18 2017 season that was a big deal beating the Chiefs in 2019. That was a big deal in 2012. The green the the Indianapolis Colts beat the Green Bay Packers when I was there and that was the first game the team played Without Chuck Pagano their head coach could be had just been diagnosed with leukemia. Huge moments like that. Like my first game ever was a Ravens Steelers game in Baltimore and the Ravens just the most the Steelers and it was great. Like what a cool way to start off your cock n f l career. So it was things like that that have been such high low point in two thousand two thousand fourteen. I guess the team had just built a new A new studio in our stadium and we were really excited about using it and there were all these different things that we wanted to do. And one of the things they asked me to do is be an in-game hosts and to know specifics fault, but just the way that things kind of gain momentum and you kind of lose some steps along the way we're really excited about being able to have a human on the Jumbotron screens throughout the game and it was a great thing. We didn't really have all the pieces parts that we needed in place to make that super successful may end up like teleprompters and communication with people in the booth and that kind of thing. So I spent that football season kind of alone on an island cuz I I had to be on camera. I didn't know what I was really supposed to say cuz I couldn't see the game and I couldn't see. What I need to necessarily so it was just what it boiled down to was technology. We didn't have the pieces that we made but we were so excited to try it and make it work that we didn't kind of slow down and do it the right way and for me I felt I felt like I was kind of abandoned but by people that I had trusted, you know, like I'm new to this. I we all have acknowledged that everyone's been very helpful to me. But now we're doing this big thing off and I'm kind of alone on an island. What I learned in that is that a you've got to find ways to prepare yourself. You can rely on people just in general in life not in that situation cuz I think everyone was doing the best they could we just didn't have what we needed and but I learned that I need to do my own preparation. I can't rely on people to prepare for me if there's something I need. I need to find a way to ask for it and explain why this is important Beyond just say, well, what do you mean you don't have this stuff? Like this is something of course. I thought everyone would know like no you need to advocate for yourself a little bit and if you don't feel comfortable in a situation birth Somebody because I think that in retrospect anybody would have pulled that idea like it wasn't working and if I had said something and then more vocal and kind of kept it for myself and my career in the way I was feeling about it. I think that that situation could have been a lot different and so for every low point that there is I mean being demoted to pencil sharpener hello, but I've tried to find the positives because in every low Point there's a lesson to be learned and there's something that you can realize like either. Oh, I'm not doing that again or oh I should have done these things, you know, there's a way for me to do that. I mean, even when it comes down to interacting with new co-workers, whether it be known new staff kind of in the front office, which is where I spend a lot of my time or it's new coaches. I mean, we NFL teams are notorious for turning stuff over the Tennessee Titans 4 a.m. Wild did it quite often and so I've worked with a lot of different coaches. I've worked with a lot of different general managers. I've worked with a million different players and everybody has different personality and they have different ways that they have like things done or that you should approach them or different ways that they like their information package and as I've been through this job, I've learned how to maneuver some of the things and where to push and where to kind of wait let them approach you, you know, I mean and it's all a learning curve but you can't go into any situation thinking. Well, this is how we've done it in the past. So this is how we're going to do it going forward and I think that that's that's been the most valuable thing that pulled out of those low points. Any point when you were demoted, did you never crossed your mind that you might leave the filled or the discipline? Well, I'm I mean, I'm well like any human I've thought man. I I could be doing anything else right now, you know, especially hits you the most around the holidays. We don't even spent Christmas Thanksgiving any of those with my family and ten years. And so those are the times when you're like, okay. What am I doing? Like, it's Christmas Eve. I'm eating Chinese food on my couch by myself. The rest of my family's together. Like why am I doing this? But then there's a game two days later, you know, and then you realize wow, this is such a cool thing that I'm able to do. And I mean again with it being such an impermanent job. It's only for a season maybe you know and every time could be my last time so instead of thinking about all of the things I'm sacrificing thinking about all of the things that I'm gaining from this experience makes it totally worth it. But every every year around this time before you start training camp is kind of when you feel like you you're getting on a train and you can't get off of it, you know and everyone I think kind of has a moment when they're like I'm not going to do this again, like once we start this in July, we're not getting off until hopefully February like am I going to happen to this one more time? Like one more we're going to do one more me answer is always yes, of course we are but you realize that just completely tornado that you're about to willingly step into and it's great. But I think every single person in the NFL has a moment where they're like again really dead. I think everybody does it but I mean it's totally worth it and frankly. I don't think I know how to do anything else like let's break this down to it actually is I don't think I have any other skills like this is pretty much where I live. This is my space so I don't I mean, I don't know how to work a nine-to-five job. Like how do you know if you win like who keeps for life insurance company? Like how do we do this? So I don't I don't see myself ever being not in the sports Realm. In some form or fashion. It's just it's too much fun. I have to ask the question about being a woman in sport because I mean it's obviously been dead. It's been a topic of conversation for a long time. I think media as well but also as of late, I think the conversation is grown, especially in the NFL with some hiring of female coaches and all that. So what's your experience been? Like, you know, I've had a very I don't know. I mean, I don't know how other people's experiences have been but it seems like I have an unremarkable experience. I've been in a lot of situations where I kind of look around and like I'm the only chicken here but like it's never been something that has been overwhelmingly obvious to me. I've never felt super singled out and I guess that I've also never really drawn attention to it. Like I don't go out of my way to be I guess overly feminine wage. I don't know. I just kind of behave how I behave I don't draw attention to the fact that I'm the only girl I don't make an issue of it because for me it's not really there's a bunch of humans in this room and we're going as long as everybody is professional and does what they need to do and we're able to accomplish our job. I don't really feel the need to draw attention to it. And I know that's not everybody's experience but it's just never been something that I have felt being overall issue. But now that we have more women in that space are the Titans owner is a woman we have a lot more women on the staff than we did five years ago. That has made it just more fun. Like I go into the bathroom and there's another person in their life, but it's it's so it's been fun to have other way around and I mean they're in a lot of different positions for the Tennessee Titans. And when you go to other stadiums, you see more women places and it's definitely been a great thing. Some of my closest friends are people who are in my job with other teams. And so we kind of have a little group text sorority thing. We keep in constant contact and so it's been a great way in that regard to meet a bunch of other women who are having these experiences that are almost hard to explain there's a lot of conversations that are like, you don't know unless you know that you know, but it's also never been something that felt super uncomfortable being in a space and being the only woman I've never felt that if something that In those spaces that hasn't defined me or I haven't felt like it was something that impacted the ways that a job would be done as long as everybody stays profession and we're all just kind of doing what we need to do to hang out. You know, I mean as long as we can all coexist, I've never felt it and I've never been in a situation where that coexisting was a problem. Um, but that's just my experience. I know that a lot of people have had different experiences some that have been really great and some of them less great, but I I've never really felt that way and no one's really made a huge deal of it. And just I just kind of show up and within 15 minutes. I'm in so many spaces. I'm Furniture like no one even sees you hanging in the back anymore like So what would you be with keys to your success keys to my success? I think a willingness to learn is a big one and being in football. They suck being coachable. And I think that that applies in a lot of different places. If you are able to accept criticism in your able to expect accept walk-ins changing the way that you do things or presenting new ideas or giving you Direction. I think that that is something that I've been very receptive to cuz I'm very aware that everybody else knows better than I do. I think having a sense of humility about everything you do not letting your ego get to Vegas big deal with not feeling entitled or as though you are owed things. I think that if for no other reason it keeps your stress down, but I think that that's that's something else. Very easy to fall into in a job where you feel like you're pushing really hard all the time. It's easy to feel like at some point. There should be something coming to you and I'm not kind of letting that get in the way of the job that you're doing in the way that you continue to grind. I think that that is really important in life a job, especially in a job in sport. And I think the last one is I don't take a lot of things super curiously I try to have a level of Comedy and kind of lightheartedness to everything that we're doing. I mean at the end of the day, we are all very stressed about a game that we're not even playing like, I don't play this game if I went out there and played football it would be a catastrophe and I have no athletic abilities at all and they give me money to talk about other people like it's great but having a sense of levity about what it is that we're actually doing why we're all here the the amazing ridiculous sometimes just catastrophic situations. We all find ourselves in from time to time because of this job. I mean, there's wild and crazy things happening all the time the stories that you could tell about just some of the ridiculous snafu. So we've all found ourselves in for a variety of reasons. I mean it when you really sit and look that look at it, you have to laugh like this job is not and I am Maintaining that perspective and being able to have that underlying sense of just humor about the whole thing. I think that it it helps kind of keep on track and helps keep your your head in the right place. Since you mentioned that a lot of people do move around and sports a lot or whether by choice or not, but one step what has kept you wanting to work with the Titans during a time, you know, the Titans are such a unique team because they're one of the smallest in the NFL from a staff perspective. And when I started there it was a really really really small and so you knew every person in every department and you knew that every single person was doing 20 different jobs five of which had nothing to do with their actual job description. And that's just how it was. We were a small team. We're a scrappy team and we're going to get this thing done one way or the other the Titans sense then home grown a lot but kind of That scrappiness Remains the Same like really do whatever it takes to get things done. Whether it's producing a new TV series whether it's launching. A marketing campaign, whether it's increasing our season ticket sales and trying to bring different things to the fans. We're kind of Scrappy and we're this small-market team that has a lot of punch and it's it's a really endearing team to work for even if you're not into the football thing which some people are I mean, there are even people on the Titans who are fans of a lot of different sports and I think that that's what makes it so great as you've got a lot of different perspectives in their life and so it's just really fun to be a part of a family like that where everyone's just going to do whatever needs to happen. You know, we're going to make this work one way or the other we're all in this together. So let's just keep pushing in the same direction. I've really fallen in love with the football team the staff the team the guys that we have in the wage. Upper Room, they're just incredible to work with and it's so much fun. Never dull moment and it just the city of Nashville and and of itself is a cool place to live no matter what it's just a fun city, but they're such great sports fans here and they have embraced the Titans in ways that I never really thought I would suggest and they're so fired up for this team and I'm not believing this until we bring all the Superbowl like I mean, they would have to drag me out kicking and screaming at this point. I'm not going anywhere because I want to see this game have the type of success that everyone around here knows they can have and that's kind of I think that's what we're all pushing for right now. I mean, I know it is So what advice would you give an aspiring professional and either PR or broadcasting? My number one piece of advice is to make sure that when you're looking for opportunities, you have to be willing to accept whatever opportunity comes your way. Even if it is remotely sort of in the same Neighbourhood potentially what you think you want to do with these the opportunity like take advantage of it cuz you never know when one thing is going to lead to something else and the other thing is tell every single human being that you interact with what it is you want to do with your life what your goals are. A lot of times it comes up organically. Sometimes it really doesn't and you just have to say oh, by the way, this is what I want to do. You would be floored by the amount of people who have a bath cousin or a neighbor or know this person who knows that person everybody's got a friend of a friend that's in sports. They just do and they want to tell you about it because then you think they're cool. It's amazing the amount of people who offered up these connections to me because it makes them feel good that they got me a job. Like that's fine. They can take credit for it. I care. I'm the one with the job now like that's fine. And so I think it's so valuable to bring that up just over and over and over again because you just never know what people will offer up to you and how people will be able to help you whether it's a nugget of a place you can look or a piece of advice like accept all of that look for that I dead. I never would have gotten the opportunity that I've had if I wasn't just discussing at nauseam what it is that I'm trying to do because people respond to that and thought maybe the motivations are selfish. It doesn't bother me at all. I'm the one that ends up with the job. So it's great advice and I think people forget that. It's similar to like talking about yourself and what you can do if people if you don't advertise it nobody will know so I think that's good advice exactly. I tell my mom all the time with people can't give me what I want. If I don't tell them what I want and she laughs at me because it makes me sound like such a high maintenance Brett. Like people can't help me unless they know what it is, but I need and that goes for everybody. I can't help you. If you don't tell me what what it is you want. There are a lot of people in this world who are willing to be helpful. You just have to give them the exact. Give them the tools to help you out and there are a lot of a lot of things that'll pop up that you won't even understand how how you got that piece of information or that connection, but it works out. So one of the things that we ask everybody to do is send us a picture. I'm going to pull yours up. Tell us a little bit about this picture. So when you guys ask me to send a photo this was the first one that came to my mind and I was like, oh aim you can send that like that's horrible. But I figured this was like a go with your gut situation. So I did this was my very first year at the Tennessee Titans. I was at a photo shoot for our cheerleaders. They were doing their kind of yearly headshots that they use for different promotional things. And someone said Amy, you need to head shots need to get pictures of you, you know, so the same so we can use them for different promotional things. And this is what turned up this. This is the photo that I ended up walking away with it because this felt like it would be illustration of everything. I was feeling like here I am. I don't really know what I'm supposed to be doing. I guess I need to be doing this but like what is this? You know, it just felt like such a bizarre world and I feel like this month. I guess it's the facial expression really that seals the deal but like this kind of confused like happy to be here, but I want to do it right but I don't think this is it bub PR behind-the-scenes. What I'm supposed to be doing is kind of my month truck. I mean I've learned so much and I feel a lot more confident than the girl in this picture right now, but still have the same level of like Lord, please let this be right the same level of just hoping and praying that we're doing it correctly and I mean the girl in this picture really happy. No clue and was just trying to learn everything. She possibly could and if I told this girl right now that I would be walking into year ten in the National Football League. She would be dead on the floor or there's no way so I'm proud of how far I've come but I saw every time I see that face, I'm like, yep, that's pretty much how it was for a while. Well, we appreciate you sharing that the sharing that picture with us for sure happy to any time. What's the biggest take away from your story off? expect the unexpected and just kind of go with it. I think I'm so thankful for the things that I took advantage of that. I never expected. I never expected to move to Baltimore Maryland out of college. I been Missouri my whole life. I didn't expect to move to all of these different teams and be broadcasting on the sidelines for an NFL team out of here. Like none of these things have been expected everything we do is just completely not what my agenda has been from the year prior the day prior. Everything is just a little bit unexpected and I think that if you can be comfortable with that if you can be okay with just kind of rolling with the punches a lot of times and and going with things that are amazing opportunities that you never expected even a little bit. I think your life can be really really fun and really fulfilling that mindset and approach that you have and that you've taken to get to where you are. Do you think that that's something that you were born with or something that you have developed over time? I think a little bit of both. I think I've always been very curious. I won't take anything at face. So as a kid, I was the one who my mom like, you know, you shouldn't touch that. So of course I'm going to touch it and it's not that I think she's wrong, but I want to know what's going to happen. Like I I need to I need to see this through I'm too curious. So I've always had a degree of curiosity. I was pretty shy in my early years as a kid. I grew out of that. I guess I don't know once I got to high school. I kind of developed a personality and kind of felt confident in speaking and I have been more in the spotlight and I guess that that that sense of adventure and not really caring about interacting with people and being chatty and being curious and wanting to have the story at the end. I mean good or bad you're going to get a story out of any situation. So you may as well go for it. And I think after a couple of times of in my college Years and in my twenties kind of realizing that like I'm not going to die if this goes really wrong like I can survive an embarrassing situation or I can survive a heartbreaker. I can survive all these different things now, it's just like why the hell not like let's go, you know, it takes away a lot of the scary when you know that you'll survive. A lot of situations. So I think that I think that I've kind of taken that Curiosity that I had when I was a kid and have just grown into a let's just figure this out. I mean, it's been a pleasure. Thank you so much for joining us. If you guys have been an absolute blast, let's do this all the time. That's still does hosted by Kevin Harrison Lauren Tasman Creighton produced by Kevin Harris.

"With the N._F._l.. PODCAST really support well to another edition of the around around the N._F._l.. podcast presented by Sirius X._M.. My name is Dan Hansen. I am joined in a room filled with heroes Mark Sesame Chris Wesseling and Greg Rosenthal. What is up bullies? Hey Dan Josh Rosen. Can I just say and keep those that money drops covering the chosen one the Rosen one. It's not a good look by the way that he's buried on the Steph drop behind Ryan Fitzpatrick. It's not like he's an actual rookie anymore. Go Win a job against the thirty six year old Ryan Fitzpatrick and training camp and it's already being set up by floors in Miami. I know jumped into the fish tank real quick tonight but it's been set up looks like a done deal like he's backup. quarterback I agree it is not a great luck Mississippi. You know open and shut case for Josh Rosen if he's as good as everyone said he was coming up. He's young man Ryan Fitzpatrick. Excuse Ryan Fitzpatrick was quoted this week saying I feel more comfortable with myself and my game right right now than I ever have and you know what I don't doubt it. I I think he's always felt comfortable with themselves but now he's just he loves his life loves being Ryan Fitzpatrick and maybe it's showing up on the field. We shot something today with Neil Reynolds over over at the N._F._l.. U._k. our friend from Sky Sports Great Man Neil and I noticed in the studio lights glistening off nicely manicured Greg Rosenthal Beard Um like why is it glistening so product confirmed yeah that'll beard oils in their low from getting you know Ritchie and whatnot so you have a special comb aimed directly for your beard exclusively. I know I don't have any combs you spend the oils in oil on your hand and then flush Gosh. That's what they say. Yeah yeah if your time buddies from two lane so you probably spent some time behind bars with what would they think about this new new trend towards your hipster identity I mean I think they would embrace it real. It's twenty nineteen. I don't know if that is twenty nine hundred my wife does not embrace it so I I think it has a short shelf. Life and it's going to be gone for the season. He's her complaints. We know because she told you to go on a show and tell everybody that you wear the pants in the relationship. You wear the pants in the relationship. It's it's made it. You know I've done it despite her wishes for months and months but I feel feel like coming back from scratch with session we're yeah when you're playing tonsil hockey with your wife. You gotTA promontory point for that all right Chris Promontory point the biggest thing about this podcast is like their friends even off the air. They'll be having this conversation downstairs. Listen to those Bros.. Chop it up all right. It's coming up on today's show the Wednesday edition of the around the N._F._l.. podcast Chris Wesseling wrote a Banger and you know he was a a little sheepish about his banger last Banger we spoke about but this one pounds table for he believes in it yeah here nee absolutely really I think the banger has been thrown around loosely lately especially towards my work but this one is is certifiable banger. Five new play callers is with make or break potential <hes> that does sound like a saucy Banger so we're going to dig into that and the coaches that wes we'll. We'll be tracking closely in the two thousand nine hundred season <hes> but before that here's what we're hearing presented by Sirius X._M.. This news ricky GEICO and now inside the N._F._l.. Pro football's most informative our with your host Len Dawson Nick Von Economy and Chris Collins Word yes first of all that's Harry callous grass from philly absolutely who is the voice over guy for H._B._O.. Keo Films Forever <hes> H._B._O.. Sports and <hes> yes nick Mona Connie who had an incredible playing career in the N._F._l.. He was a member linebacker of the nineteen. Seventy-two undefeated dolphins he was inducted into the pro football hall of fame played with both the Miami Dolphins and the Boston Patriots he passed away at the age of seventy eight <hes> on Tuesday and <hes>. I just wanted to send the reason I played that is I grew up how I became an N._F._l.. Fan really was you know watching the jets with my dad but then also what where I learned about the N._F._l.. Oh was H._B._O.. And inside the N._F._l.. About a coty and Len Dawson later Collins worth they were your guide to take you through all the games this before the Internet you know this this is before you would have easy access to what was going on around the league and you would have N._F._l.. Films going through each game and in fact that I feel like that show oh it was the blueprint for our podcast and going through every game on Sunday nights our flagship show so inside the N._F._l.. Very important show for me and a lot of people market and we've talked about that show before and Coty was a big part of it so I'm sure he will be missed. At the age of seventy eight. Nick Bennett County passes away. I feel the same same way you do about that show and it was that was back during a time when you know my brother and I would fight over the sports page in the morning because it's the only content out there now that feels like an absurd thing that anyone would fight over a newspaper of any level but but because he was a great communicator and were were too young to have known him as a player but think of how many like young people now will know Tony Romo for the next fifteen twenty years because of his ability to communicate and so you know he he also had a son that was paralyzed at age nineteen playing ball right and he raised he went on to raise a ton of money for research into rallies so there was a lot of angles and factors actors and assets hundreds of millions of dollars for the Miami project to cure paralysis a great patriot too. I mean it was part of a bunch of all N._F._l.. Teams was was part of their team. It was the they did make a championship game in the sixties and the A._F._l.. He was part of that team and he's from Springfield the town right next to where I grew up so I mean he had a a great patriots gear and a great dolphins career awesome all right. Let's get into it the news Michael Thomas and the saints they get it done. Thank God worst the worst headlines. The worst storylines to talk about in July and August are the holdouts. There's just no. There's no juice to it but it's important to talk about because they're superstar players so whenever the deal gets done it's good for everybody a five year one hundred million dollar contract extension that include sixty one millions million guarantees that from rap sheet <hes> Thompson sat out the start of Saint Training camp. He wanted a new deal instead he jumps out of that hole outlets that still includes Zeke Elliott Melvin Gordon <hes> Trent Williams and others twenty six years old now sits atop opted wide receiver market surpassing Odell Beckham makes eighteen million per year average Greg Thomas <hes> he is really exploded <hes> onto the scene and he certainly deserves to be in that conversation of the best wide receivers in the league. Maybe is not always brought up but he certainly should be there he should because has not many people match the physicality that he has and he has maybe one of the the most physical bodies just in terms of cornerbacks x can't get around him as he can just box them out with deep speed with. I think that's what was surprised a lot of people in the N._F._l.. That's why he fell to the second round that he could be such a big playmaker occur and he is he. He breaks up a lot of the when they don't leave safety deep Thomas Low kill you over the top and he's earned it in the age of analytics. He's he's a guy I was nicknamed could be positive outcome. He was the most reliable pass completion positive play in football last year as the security blanket for Sean Peyton drew brees. I think he's battling with Deandre Hopkins to be decide. Which one is the new Larry I I just want to mention who is taken in front of him in that in that at wide receiver people out Korey Coleman? We'll pick JOSH DOTS and Liqun Treadwell. Those are at least the first round picks and Thomas US going midway through the second round remember in the eighties and early nineties speaking of inside the N._F._l.. In that era when they had the N._F._l.. Posters and it would be ridiculous. Gila like Dome Patrol for the saints or like the giants it'd be the bad fellas and they'd be dressed like gangsters West your positive outcome. Can't Talk about something dangerous around the Indianapolis Colts Andrew Luck's calf injury. It's lingering the colts quarterback sat out Tuesday's practice session and <hes> Frank Reich the colts coach said reporter said <hes> luck will not participate in the next two practices and ruled him out to play in the team's first preseason game. It's a nagging injury. It's been around for three months per N._F._l.. Networks Tom Pella Cerro. There are no more doctor. Appointments Scans are surgery scheduled gelded for luck but it's been labeled a calf string and kind of a setback that he's not ready to play football yet. Where's your piece scale at West? One is completely dry ten on demand. I was hoping you would ask this exact question the peekskill it's about a one I I don't know I mean compared to last year when it was nine point nine because of his shoulder this is this pales in comparison to last year's concerned. He said he he's played through worst pain basically they they. He said if he had to play tomorrow he'd be. He'd be all right the play he's got five or what five or six weeks before the season starts. I'll do it all that he's had an injury for three months that has not gotten better doesn't bother me I mean especially when they said like previously that he would be ready for training game and we're very confident I would put it higher because Andrew luck sounds sounds like you said he sounded practically dejected when he said it's going backwards. He said the injury was going backward and he was frustrated because it's been it's been and months and it it doesn't seem like it's serious four one four one dollars still some still some triples of your point one. That's on the right so you know no concern. I would jake brisket. I'd say just get them loose. Keep them ready God. I hope I don't have to watch him play for a whole year but this is obviously something to watch and we talked about it on the show that they cited the Kevin durant injury as you know a template in terms of be extra careful with this last thing we need is Andrew lucked suffering another serious injury so it makes all the sense in the world to bring them along extra very slow but how about some positive developed nothing good comes from training camp at all just negative which on that very topic like A._J.. Green yes he was injured in the first or the practice training camp at that field with all the pebbles on it he will miss regular are multiple regular season Games which is not the outlook that was originally presented he underwent ankle surgery on Tuesday and when they went in there to check it out they realize the damage is a little bit more severe than anticipated so it went from the hope that he would be ready for week. One to expected to Miss Multiple Regular Season Games rap sheet reported Zack Taylor the new bengals coach confirmed that it is going to be a bit of time on the shelf for a superstar wide receiver <hes> and yes by the way Cincinnati follows an opening a week one trip to Seattle with games against the niners bills is an steelers so they could use their best player and they're not gonNA have him for at least the first couple of games. It looks like maybe more I was taken by Isak Taylor immediately putting that timeline out there almost as a way to send the signal to green like take. You know we're behind you. It's like a player friendly move. We're going to put this timetable out as far as possible. Coaches usually don't do that saying Oh. He's definitely going to miss some games in the regular season like don't rush it you know if he comes back earlier than that then then you look like a hero and that will be a pleasant surprise but I thought it was interesting interesting. He went out of his way to kind of. Take the pressure off moving on Trent Williams. Where's the out with the redskins? It's not good everything we're hearing. Hearing is negative that it is a <hes> relationship that is fractured beyond repair while the Athletics Jeff how reports that the Redskins are quote having trade discussions regarding Williams and how added that the Patriots Greg Boys expected to be in the mix if Williams does hit the market. He's on the record William saying he's not gonNA play for the redskins anymore so if this is bad as it seems we could see a trade coming. Where yes he's thirty one? He's had some issues issues injury issues but these type of offensive lineman West don't typically wiggle free this close to the start of the season. I would imagine it'd be a very healthy market especially for a contender or team in dire straits at offensive line like your Cincinnati bengals that would never do that but teams that could use a left tackle. There's going to be market if he's out there. Houston Texans come to mind the guy they drafted in the first round has been playing guard not tackle Titus Howard so they come to mind <hes> it. It seems that in the past forty eight hours the finally not dawned on the Redskins but they've accepted the fact that Trent Williams is probably not going to play for them so we might as well start listening to trade <hes> they signed Donald Penn and when Donald Penn spoke to the media he said I didn't like playing right tackle last year. I wasn't comfortable with it. I'm coming to the Redskins to play left left tackle. They must have something that we don't know that Trent Williams isn't coming back. I mean it's just a terrible situation for Dwayne Haskins for whoever's playing quarterback for that team because because I already viewed the Redskins as one of the offensively there's just not a lot to love. There's not a lot of weapons and last year I felt like they were basically run running team with with a tight with with heavy through passing options to the tight end. They didn't nothing going on. It's not a good situation for a rookie quarterback. I would go as far as say Greg that this would be a blessing in disguise as for the Redskins to Trade Trent Williams but and certainly one of these circumstances it deflates your you know your ability to get high value back for him but he's a thirty thirty-one-year-old left tackle for a team. That's probably at least a couple years away. They trading him and getting good value. Back is not the worst things for a redskins team. In transition depends what's good value though he's their best player or he has been there is this. Is this team next year or this year no no but he's their best player in okay. Are the Texans going to give up a first round. Pick for a second round pick. Maybe I mean with health concerns. I mean to me. I wouldn't trade Williams unless you got a second round unpick. He's like what why is that helping juice. Let him sit out. All you see what happens. I don't know the call. Call the bluff on that. I think they could get some Duane. Brown got a second round. Pick at midseason. Why can't trend Williams? Who Do we trust to win? The have forty million why all these teams have so much cap space spend it to spend it on Tread Williams if it's the forty million dollars if it's the Patriots. Who Do you trust to win the deal here? Bill Belichick Bruce Allin Doug Williams is on the phone to you know you trust Doug little surprise if the Patriots got in there but their first round pick from a year ago Isaiah win still not practicing back to scene so right now they have <hes> Joe Tuni. WHO's there left guard playing left tackle for the most part could be a problem and the other news to take out of of this that yes it does continue the streak? It's been going on for the last seven hundred forty seven high level veterans that hit the trade market to immediately be attached to the patriots as a potential suitor just the record. It's a record that will never be it's it's CAL ripken baseball baseball the Yankees and they that's been the case since the nineties there the case since the forties. That's that's true although you boy you know. What are you doing? The reds trading for Trevor Bowers you want him on the race. I forgot every superstar store and Major League Baseball is ultimately ticket for the because they're the only game in town and it's cute that you guys fancy yourself contenders but you know stay out of the big play well the oldest team in baseball. It's allowed to win games two unexpected furiously sleet googling Trevor Bauer. I don't know if you're GONNA like Jeb. Our I read up on him a lot last night and you could not create in a lab Ab- any anything or anyone with a more going personality than this guy. He's a real menace on twitter as well. Oh my God I think he's a sociopath from the pitcher though is absolutely it's just going to be hard to root for a shutout from that guy every time out yeah all right <hes> in other news mark. Why don't you jump on twitter at baseball stuff? Recently you know my baseball content. It arrives when it arrives not went to ask for Oh that reminds me of <hes> interaction. We had walking up here where Andy Greg who's big time exact giant because he's so tall. His nickname just walked this by secular. You've been tweeting out some weird daily. Well you know I love the people I only or I don't have a rich history covering baseball's well moving on the cowboys back in business with Alfred Morris <hes> this deal comes of course at a time <hes> when douse could use more bodies in their backfield at running back back as a potential protracted hold out with Ezekiel Elliott goes on so thirty years old off Morris you know he's he's had moments <music>. He's had moments and thirty years old perceiving years. That's fair yeah. I accidentally call them. Albert Morris are lascaux and talking about his rookie season that was two thousand twelve but it feels like he's been in the league. Since about Nineteen ninety-six is one of those guys but he actually did some things a couple of years ago with Dallas <hes> in <hes> limited duty and you could do worse probably probably do better do are also nice little insurance policy. He knows that knows the system there. Jane Slater reported something interesting on Tuesday that her sources from Dallas told her the cowboys do not like the way Todd Gurley earliest contract with structured and they want to reset the market rather than set the market and she s. She said they're Really did potentially change the way players are thinking because Gordon End Zeke in theory you know could could do the bell playbook not the whole season but maybe actually missing some games in theory if he actually has changed their minds at all I mean I think it was the other show. A couple couple of shows go when I mentioned that the only hold out that had me concerned at all was not this one and I am this is starting to get on my on my radar a little bit as a nettlesome issue <hes> word well put mark. That's what's happening like making. Just you got to make a comment at some point. That's what's happening happening in the news all right so <hes>. It's like crap now. I have to say like a window into marks in turn like interior cheerier better soon. They're going to know they can do. They can do easily all right. That's what's happening in the news all right so west. He's back a bit of a soft launch for the Banger in the Banger zone for wes with his last piece but now he's all training camp is done the you know. He got some reps in week three of the preseason <hes> you know he met with his trainers and he took recall the right supplements didn't get suspended. He is ready for football camp a little overweight. This was an exercise in knocking the rust off for me. You Gotta learn about Kelly Moore. You know I've gotta learn about what Chuck Pagano did last time he was defensive coordinator Dad's good so what are West right about he wrote about the <hes> assistant coaches in new places that really are going to be big factors with their teams and I imagine West these are teams that fancy see themselves super bowl contenders so there could be a maker Break Element to <hes> these gentlemen and their presence with these teams want to get into the list because I have a feeling that one person on this list will not be a super bowl contender in the eyes of Youth Ry Rick Skin Rich Carello of course Denver broncos offense gangs gangs gangs in the article all right so tell us about skaggs thanks. He's he's new offensive coordinator of the Broncos Gary Kubiak of course who will talk about later seem to have some type of falling out might be strong but disagreement or philosophical optical break with John Elway so he left the team <hes> and took his his <hes> hair is gorgeous hair to Minnesota but skaggs is there as the O._C.. Tell else about what do you think about what's going on. There while Scans is only the O. C.. Because elway John Elway got on the phone to another Stanford Legend legend John Lynch and basically coaxed him in to allowing the Broncos to interview skaggs so he had to promise that he was the League candidate that he was probably going to get the job when they hired him. This guy comes from the Kyle Shanahan tree. <hes> and I think that might mon- check the offensive line. Coach is just as is important of a higher scan Carrillo he has he's. He's one of the most respected line coaches in the N._F._l.. The steelers were top seven and Devi O._A.. All five years that he was running the offensive line in Pittsburgh and this is the team with the second most blown blocks in the N._F._l.. Last year the Broncos they've got at least two new starters and John John James at Right Tackle Dalton governor. The rookie at guard and FLACCO had the lowest rating passer rating under pressure in the N._F._l.. Last season so it's very important Norton for him not to be under constant pressure. I feel like between gangs and mum check. This will be an improved offense much imprint. They're going to have a lot of new starters on his team. I like it when teams have kind of a connection to the schemes that they run throughout their history and this is very much a denver broncos type of offense. I mean it's very much a Mike Shannon. which is it look? It's still working as you can see with Kyle Shanahan and the influence he's had with John mcbain everyone else across lake but what a what a come up for this guy guy he was the wagner offensive coordinator three years ago Wagner he was at millsaps like five six seven eight years ago so what's millsaps millsaps millsaps college also the last name of it's a female prep school in Iowa Denver Nuggets power for so I mean he I think he's the guy that Kyle Shanahan really like loved in that and I think that word got around the league and now he's in Denmark. This is your slot. What are you asking skimming today? Bathing in the the knowledge that West is just pouring on us here so next topic's gang all right. Let's talk about Gary Kubiak. It didn't work out in Denver. <hes> couldn't figure out a way to do it so he goes to Minnesota and this is situation where offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski he'll still have the GIG and he'll still be calling the plays but west Kubiak is going to be I mean that offense is GonNa look different if Gary Gary Kubiak is in town talk about dream higher I mean Steph as he's calling the plays but they not only brought in Kubiak they brought in Rick Dennison Kubiak long time time right hand man who manages the running game they brought in they brought in Click Kubiak for quarterbacks coach Kubiak que they bring in all these guys are implementing Gary Kubiak system a system which is tailor-made not only for kirk cousins but also for Davin Cook and that offensive line there aren't going be seven Jet Bra blocks or seven step drops the law offensive line we have more time they won't be under as much pressure with all the rollouts bootlegs. They're going to have kirk. Cousins is the only quarterback with a thousand passing yards and a one hundred better passer rating on play action throws in each of the past four years which is the foundation of Kubiak offense. I feel like this is just a perfect you talk about the problem last year. Mike Zimmer's desire for a run oriented attack versus an offensive line that couldn't pull it off and and John D. Filipa who's always been very pass heavy play caller you bring in a guy who marries the run in the past as well as anybody has for the past couple of decades Gary Subbiah. That was your slot. No I don't play that daily of course but I then I decided as you referenced the slot and now all I can think about is mark slot. We need more gambling. Here's what happened though and he is wrapping up. I gave mark look that was like okay you go. I knew what was going tip on it. Because this is your top skysports hit with Gary Kubiak flavored with yes I believe in the Vikings game pass which everyone should should buy a game pass Europe. I think it's especially for the overseas listeners so people would buy American. You cannot see it'll show up. I think closer to the the N._F._l.. But it's a big season preview. Do you know what I think. The Vikings are so primed for a bounceback season and I think it helps them so much that last year ear after the Minneapolis miracle and then getting cousins which seemed like a obvious upgrade over case keenum that they would be a team that would get get to the super bowl finally back to the Super Bowl and they kinda wilted felt under that and cousins that live up to expectations even if his numbers seem to strong as always this year though they seem to be lying the weeds in the N._F._C. and that and I think west everything you're adding is just as more futile fuel to that fire and my feeling that this is a team this this to me they could be a twelve and fourteen that offense gains more consistency. I believe in that defense. I believe in that home field advantage. It's one of the best in the N._F._l.. They seem to be <hes> potential N._F._C.. Monster there was just a stink on them. From the early part of the earliest reports we heard of Di Filippo Zimmer not being on the same page and I think it it it kind of rotted that team from the inside out and so this feels like Zimmer's God is guy. His guys cougs coupes two point. Oh The sun don't nobody looks like but I mean it sounds like a good. I think they are a bounceback type team. He brings an entourage. That's why it sounds like that's why he left. Denver is ultimately when you hire iakobs. You don't just have coops you have denison clean. You'll be acting. You got it all on the payroll. It's like hiring the star and you gotta find like a job for Lebron. Gene is like the third best friend or whatever and that's why he ended up in Minnesota and he's got a great running back to build around in Dalvin Cook who I think wasn't totally back from the A._C._O.. But still quite good last year and we'll be even better this year. Look at Kubi track record. He has turned a slew of undrafted guys and late round picks in two thousand yard. RUSHERS got a second round pick and Davin Cook. Let's connect again back with the broncos. The broncos are connected to all these. It's like a Kevin Bacon situation. This is the Shanahan family is running through this entire list interesting so yes I just brought up case keenum keenum. He went from Minnesota to Denver and Kubiak he he went from Denver to Minnesota Soda Now Chuck Pegado he replaces Vic Fazio who went from Chicago to Denver. He is the new defensive coordinator of depth buyers trademark me your thoughts was well. This is the one that this this instigated the article <hes> thinking about Chuck Pagano because you lose Vic Fangio. Who is I think along with Wade Phillips the most most respected affected defensive mind in the game right well bill belichick sort of on an island up there by himself but you know throw in Romeo Coronel is another guy who's respected but we don't really we know what Chuck Pagano is? He had one year defensive coordinator with the Ravens where they finished third in defense with Ray Lewis Ed Reed Terrell suggs and then he went to the the colts and he never really had much town to work with on defense now he's token over a defense that is almost sure to regress to the mean just because they had a sky a high turnover rate loss very few games to injury last year and cannot and fifteen percent of drives with an interception like they did last year especially especially That defense every week to make up for their offense. I felt like an if you're if you're in the situation Pagano. You're going to get blamed from their earliest part of the season. It doesn't go well. Why would I want to take over some for someone who floundered before me you come in and you look on the other hand when you have a chance to work with Cleo Max Akiem Hicks Roquan Smith Dan Danny I mean they're absolutely loaded Jackson Kyle? They are loaded and yet. I think it's a tough spot to go to for for Pagano. Dan Pompei wrote a good article at this week on the athletic about the bears just did the teams that return all their starters and the expectations of their sometimes. Those are the ones I'm worried about. There's there's no longer like the COMP. There's no competition that all the starting back they were Kinda hungry and trying to prove who've everything I think Nagy did such an amazing job. Can He create that many plays again but defensively. It's just proven statistically that is tough to stay that dominance stay. Hey that Hungary on paper though they are the best. I don't think like you need to try to come up with some hot. Take that there's some other team. They are the best on paper. I'm interested in your number number of number four on your list and again Chris Wesseling Rhoda Banger five new coaches with maker big potential so the Falcons we all know what happened Kyle Shanahan new coaches coaches okay presided over offense that was historically great <hes> in the two thousand sixteen season <hes> in Atlanta when they went to the superbowl nearly won the damn thing before collapsing <hes> he he leaves gets the GIG and San Francisco head coach job so Steve Sarkisian comes in and he never was able to match it he he was never able to match the magic even though they did score points just wasn't special so what do they do west. They bring back guys that were familiar to Matt Ryan and Company Company before that amazing two thousand sixteen season which is almost to say. I don't know from a perspective and outside perspective. Maybe we'll never capture lightning in the bottle like we it didn't twenty sixteen but we liked what we were before. Kyle Shanahan got there. We didn't like the Sarkisian version of us. Let's try. It's as you wrote. Go back to the future I four years Matt Ryan's Careers Coordinator was Mike Malarkey next three years as coordinator was Dirk Cutter Falcons hire both of them this year one to coordinate the passing game the other coordinate the running game and Dan Quinn cited continuity. Basically they want to run the system. Matt Ryan's been running while he's been a top five or six quarterback the last three or four years rather than going back to what they're cutter was doing <hes> <hes> and dirk cutters. He runs an air coryell like vertical spread scheme. That should be pretty similar to what they were running him before so it shouldn't be a big change but I think what they're gonNA find is even though they were top ten offense during Dirk cutters first time around Matt Ryan's. Is it different quarterback now. He was a much more conservative passer. His average depth of target was always kind of bottom third in the league and now he is one of the most prolific downfield bomb throwers in the N._F._l.. He he is excellent at it has been for three years. I mean if we talk about the Vikings as bounceback team. I go falcons because a lot obviously went wrong healthwise for them last year but but cutter in like Matt Ryan have proven that they can get along well and and and work with each other and that's a huge factor during the N._F._l.. Another option I guess you'd have to be monkeying around with the categories here. You know new coaches but Dan Quinn. I mean Dan Cleanser Defensive Coordinator Right now they they didn't hire anyone. He's under pressure because he fired all his coordinators Peter King Point. I think it was from football outsiders. Actually they were the first team since the eighty eight eighty nine nine colts to fire all three of their coordinators and keep their head coach <hes> which is crazy and he's fired a lot of coordinators over there and then he put himself in as a defensive coordinator so to me. There's a lot of pressure on Quinn to deliver what that younger. I guess I was a Falcons Fan. I'd feel pretty good about that it would to if you trust those offensive minds and of course yes you. You remember if you know the N._F._l.. That Quinn was the DC of that historically great seahawks team so he's got it in them to scheme it up as peyton manning. I liked liked the moves. I like all the move. I think a huge thing in Atlanta too is used to first round picks on linemen and if they hit if that works out you've you've had a big <unk> strength to that team. Finally Wes tell us why when you talk about the Dallas cowboys offense you. Could you know Waddell on in maybe if you're not U._S.. Here fit men and you swing open those doors and welcome to the last chance saloon as you put it well well. Jason Garrett is in the last year of his contract. Super Bowl clock is ticking with Jason Witten and Sean Lee who are possibly in the last year they're legendary careers in Dallas. The offensive line nucleus which the whole thing is built around is creeping away from its prime especially at left tackle and maybe at center and you have a stable of young stars in need of huge contracts they boys the sands running through the hourglass here. It's time and Scotland a hand who who was actually Kelly Moore's mentor in both Detroit and Dallas was SORTA scapegoated for having a stale offense. I think Freddie Kitchens Hitchens browns coach said this at the end of last year when you're running offense these days defenses are so athletic so speedy. It's really important pre snap to give them a moment's omits hesitate and that's what Kella more supposed to do here. He not only comes from Lenihan scheme. He comes from Boise state where they have a wide array of formation in shifts emotions and I think you're GonNa see the same foundation. The same philosophy delineating used just with a lot more options before the snap that try to confuse defense. I'm looking forward or to a new coach and Dak Prescott here and everything that we've heard I think we talked about a little bit but Dan Orlovsky who who had time with Kellen Moore talking about what he's implementing is sounding a lot more like closer to cliff kingsbury than it really is to Scott Lenihan and I think he's laser focused on making all the things that that does well especially the deep ball and thrown on the move accentuating that and I and I for whatever reason I don't think they were getting the most that Adak last couple of years and I'm more excited to watch this offense under I love this story because I mean this is a guy who coach's son right away. They talked about how his acumen his smarts arts is. Creativity were an asset but he wasn't much of a player but it's crazy to think that he was just playing a couple years ago and he's now running an n._f._l.. Offense you don't see that kind of rise theoretically. He was his own quarterbacks backup. The man he's coaching Dak Prescott now any great Prescott was elevated because Kellen Moore broke his Frankel on one of the first days of training. Oh you happen to be there that day and suddenly everyone crowding around this fourth round pick Dak Prescott because hey you're going to have to be the backup and as we found out a few weeks later he was going to have to be the starter that was one of my favorite plot points of Greg Does Dallas the things you hear about people. Don't Easley talk about the plot that much sets everything up to shit same. The things you hear about Sean mcvay you hear about Kelly Moore. Well you know John Kitten has said he had a beautiful mind. Dak Prescott said he's one of the quote young genius fiefdoms in the Kelly Moore Day only thirty years old. It's just crazy so I like. It's excite Jason Garrett's the man who replaced Jason Garrett if they don't get Sean Payton well it's actually so he was nine when they hired him. Wow that is wild. They've got Chris Rashard on defense who really took over play calling from Rod Maryland Marinelli last year even though Marinelli's the coordinator so they've got a couple of head coaching candidates nice is well. Check it out N._F._l.. Dot Com slash wesseling <hes> to see all those all that analysis in one place. I guess while we're here Greg Cuban writing your a training camp pieces winners and losers a weekly segment basically yeah son they go it goes up Monday mornings some winners and losers big recap the the training camp week that was <hes> the old juicer will have a Friday calm to be determined and then hard knocks recaps return on Tuesday when hard Knox's back in the Oakland raiders so I think it will be the eighth year I'm doing this is getting ridiculous. Now you would think at some point in your career advances pass certain things but now it's just it this nice little plateau and just sits where it is and we just coast along deeper and deeper into our lives. I'm not complaining marketing degree on the horizon a new column that will be featured every week is beginning a week or two. I'll do some ideas by the original content team and one of them. They accept it. You reeled amid a couple of them. They said this is stupid. This idea doesn't work. This man knows how to deliver a tease. Yeah an eight part expose on sex and the end of the process okay all right <hes> oh I wanted to hit Orson Welles and I was like two stunned like left my finger to I'm glad you did not and remember the <hes> the fifth annual fish annual final fantasy extravaganza will be held later and I think we're trying to reel in the big fish right anybody one of you guys haven't Selva gotta get the big fish back in the boat uh-huh oh yeah with his exciting career change and also immense knowledge in the fantasy realm so now Merdeka if you're listening and I know your regular Listener Jenner Evan Hop in the boat if you can we'd love to have you gotTa pull in a big thing now. It's not going to be easy. I mean now if he declined for whatever reason this just looks terrible for him. I mean it doesn't look great for China to promote his new site established the run. He's taken these media requests now. It's like now now. He owns the boat yeah yeah. I'm saying that's absolutely true. <hes> all right. We'll be back on Friday <hes> with another show so thank you to everyone for listening until then this is. Dan Hans US signing signing off for quite storm. GotTa look into your brain today. I'd be concerned the mailman y'all Boston Nikki Hollywood they would behind the glass deal

Ladies and gentlemen, it's time for your favorite segment of all time. Football talk with the Hawke AJ hawk what's going on. Okay. AJ? I thank you so much for calling into the show a last minute call in from the bullpen while you're currently watching six children by yourself. Is that correct? No, I only have four kids. But yeah, they are currently under my care while doing this call what is happening over there. So you're playing a full zone defense with these four goddamn little things and your wife is out of town. And it's no nanny. No babysitter. Just former Super Bowl champion AJ hawk and his four kids data the year shit. I mean, if I have some scheduled like I did a bunch of radio. Yes, they have serious. I have to have my mother-in-law someone come help out. But tonight, I didn't have any exclusive until I got a FaceTime call from Patrick McAfee. So I decided to. Yeah. Not gonna get someone over here to watch them. So I got my legal daughter kinda overseeing. So she kinda has the power, and she can let him know what penalize them like for all the power while I'm doing this call. Hey, the art of delegation is something you have to teach young. I am. I'm impressed by that mystery to hook. It did the Chuck did up Ghana do that. I don't know. What that even means? I have no idea what that meant. Or what who you were trying to take a shot at right there? I just trying to. Semblance plug for you to do your Chuck. We're gonna oh, listen, listen. There's nothing wrong with a little delegation. Sometimes you got to know what you don't know. You know, sometimes you have to know what you don't know. Ignorance a problem. It's an opportunity. Listen naturally dish. All right. Mr. AJ hawk Shum times. You gotta run in charcoal to get back to where you started. That's a fucking doesn't make any sense. He did. Yeah. In I have an interview with him coming up next week. He's going to he was actually going to come on today's show, but he realized about five minutes before the show that he hadn't done the Chicago press conference yet that he's been announces the D coordinator and said, I can't do that. So he's gonna come on next week. I chance to talk to him a you excited about that. Wait, let's not even talk about Chicago Bears. Let's talk about you being excited about the Green Bay Packers. Hire you came up on nowhere. Nobody knows who this guy is you came out swinging in the skies corner. Why is that your big fan of the higher? Obviously goes in the trend these young hotshot offense create anyone that's been touched by McVeigh figured literally. But I I just think I was still. That was I wasn't member of the Atlanta Falcons for about four weeks the year that they got beating the civil bowl and the QB throats at the time was one Matt before. And for some reason, I talk to him a lot when I was there. I just want to go back and forth. And I didn't really know who he was didn't know much about him. I knew he seemed good. I was impressed by it. And I know he's he jumped around after that that when I don't want to maybe they go to San Fran for your fucking. Because I can't hear a word you're saying. I mean, I it sounds as if you are literally taking your phone throwing it down the hallway talking catching up to picking it back up and talking again how about now what's going on. You told me I feel like eight year old doesn't have anything under control. It sounds like all madness is broken out over there. Every fourth word is just going completely blank. Can you still messing up? I I can't tell it doesn't show up to me, man. You literally sounded like Wynton they're like, you know, how when witness talking on Monday night. Like this. Well, no, I think the connection you were breaking up or if you're walking around he has a mansion of a house, by the way, a FaceTime to today. I thought he was in a hotel. I thought he was a fucking hotel. It was his house. And then I saw little kids. He has a beautiful place over there. He deserves it. So you got a chance to befriend him whenever you were at the Atlanta Falcons. Aaron Rodgers also gave him the sign off to they said Aaron called him. And he was hired ten minutes later. I think the Green Bay Packers should be excited about it. And I loved Colin that game in lambo wish you were there with me. Yeah. I know. I was I was going to ask you how how did that go? How was it much different? Like, how do feel compared to the Texas Tech game that we did? AJ you, and I we know each other pretty well. So I feel like I knew going into that experience in Jerry world with the Texas farm bureau insurance, Texas, shootout, Baylor and Texas Tech. I knew that if all failed. I could just ask you a question and then hopefully berate you for your answer. I knew that that was something that I could do with Robert Smith. I had no idea who he was. I had no clue yen coin NFL game in eight years. I think he's called a game in eight years in justifying culture there. I don't think he's called a game in a long time either. So we were going in there with just a mixed bag of people, and to be honest, we hung out before the show before the game a little bit. We had dinner thing and all that. But I I it's hard to build up a report like you, and I add so so I was a little bit hesitant going into the thing. And then I took a little little vitamin rip right before the game. Started said fuck it. Let's let her fly. That's exactly what happened. But I missed you. You were good though, man. And they so cut you're not done a few games with Justin touches the play by play in that Robert Smith. He's so high sticking, I don't you know that or not. But yeah, I was wondering how good the three bit. And you don't know each other real, well, it's kinda hard enough to step on each other. But I saw that Detroit. Ran that sakes field goal for touchdown to religious put. It was almost like that was set up just perfectly for you. Like they knew you were in the booth. Everybody knows that every time I make any type of religious statement. I count all of the religions in. I shout out the Mormons. I shout out the Christians, the Jewish the Tom Cruise's the. The the the Buddha's I shut them all out. And I think to be honest, they all did a little tag team up there in came through for me with that Prater touchdown. And also, I do believe there's a chance because the guy that was running the lines special teams was from the colts was a ballboy basically for me and Vinnie there for a little bit. He was running the special teams because the head special teams guy got fired. He just wasn't named had special teams guy Saint Martin I pretty good friends. Matt Prater pretty good friends. I think there's a chance that they heard that. I was in that game. Fuck it. We got nothing to lose here. Let's go ahead and put this in because they could have checked out of that in for that. I'll forever be thankful. I honestly they they gave me a a gift from all of the gods. All of them. I think I hit them all to. Agents. Good AJ is good. He and I have what we like to call in the biz the good report. I also have a good report with this new app that I've been using every single day of my life, and it's mostly because I am possibly at the jet at this point. And it's not gambling anymore. It is investing because I use the app the action network. The action network is a place that gives you all the information you need to know to become the best sports gambler on earth. You want to see the trends. They got trends you want to hear write ups from the experts from the experts right there on the app. Also, you can track all of your bets in there. So when you place a bet track it in their green dock city is a place that you will go because the action network is supplying you with all the information you need to know to win. The dough the action work app. The only place when the action network app. The only place you can track all of your bets and. Connected to sports sites. Like my bookie in five others. That's all it says mybookie and five others. We only use my bookie right here. We do. But if you use the others in said, others, you can connect that right to the action network up as soon as you place. The bet it'll go right into the app, then all you have to do to follow along whether you're winning or losing the percentage of you win in the percentage of you losing they give you updates and notifications to the games that you're betting right there in one place. It's incredible action works the place to go from gambling to investing investing you invest in the action network. App. The app the action network. Yep. Back to the show. Well, you know what? Honestly, I was curious how the production meetings until I talked to Erin. And he said he's like honestly, Pat had some really good questions, and I could tell he was actually really well like prepared. He goes it was great. He was really good in the production me Aaron Rodgers said that. Yeah. Because I was curious like it's gonna show up and his wife beater, and his we're Jordan's that. No one's ever heard of before and has cut off Jean shorts that are skin-tight into the Lambeau in little meeting room there and just throw terrible questions. But I knew you wouldn't do that. And and said, you were good. Then sure sounded like you thought I was going to do that. That was a pretty descriptive little run. You went on right there. Mr. Hawke, but. Hype people were saying you thought people were saying you heard other people saying that. And I I heard those whispers as well, I heard those all around but going into that thing whenever you and I did Sean Kelly the play by play guy. He kinda lead the conversation with them. And we just kind of piggybacked on the backside of it. I asked the dumb questions you ask the real questions going into this one was like you guys you drive it in all ask questions going in in Robert Smith didn't seem like he was much of an interview. Or so to be honest. It was it was just like a fucking podcast in had a full podcast conversation with Aaron Rodgers. And it was kind of cool to see the behind the scenes of that type of stuff because I assume that that happens with every NFL game. I've never been in one of those. It's very interesting to see both sides like the lions and see the Packers. And there's like so much worries of like, hey, don't tell them we told you this. You saw this. You can't even mention that. Because I'm a guy that isn't much of a filter. Like I wanted to be like are. And Rogers like map jersian is openly said that he's gonna have a how are you gonna peak? Fuck can't say that gotta keep that inside voices in there. But it was fun. Well, you know, Sean Kelly production meetings. He he didn't have a ton of questions, and those are usually always like interests that runs. It is asking all the questions of the play by play may have a couple at the end. But yeah, I could see I I bet it was awesome. I know. That's why Aaron instead it was a nice change up for him. You have to deal with real questions from you. And not just probably the normal run-of-the-mill stuff that everyone else has been around him for fifteen sixteen weeks. I'll tell you what it meant a lot him and Joe Philbin. Both they opened the door in the meeting room, and they just start laughing as soon as they saw me just. Oh, yeah. You yeah. I was with Joe, and I very tight very tight massage for ninety minutes in the same room together tight Joe Philbin. And I. Here somewhere outside off campus who's in another country. Actually, it was in London. Oh, okay. All right. We got jobs, man. I was with Joe for a long time. I love that. He's the most sarcastic dry humor in the world. He's our. Yeah. I bet. Yeah. I bet. I'm sure I you said it took a while to understand his humor didn't it. Yeah. For me literally took into that London game, which I think was damn near. I don't know what it was middle of the season. I didn't even know he talked. I had no idea. I just seen him on hard knocks. And I told him right to his face that this was one of my questions during that media thing right there to Joe Philbin. You probably the most drastic change in. How I thought of you as an original human from seeing you on hard knocks. How terrible you are too. Coming around in really liking, you probably the most drastic change I've ever experienced in my life. Have you seen have you seen that agree bane? He just started laughing. He started laughing. Yeah. I'm starting to be myself more. He led into like a real answer to this kind of. It was pretty cool. I had a good time. There. I missed you there to roundabout compliment you gave him. Yeah. Well, you know, like Joe he has no time for any garbage like millennial social media care less like he's not going to go with personality, either the key. But one on one. In and around with. That's why I think he thrives. He took out of you. If you don't see him, hourly laughing. Yeah, it's that was the big thing is I just thought this was the most bland offensive line coach in history. And then we're in that I've told a story a couple times we're in a massage room though in London in the hotel Meave and a -tarian Joe Philbin. We're the only ones that didn't travel into the city on the Friday night. So we had the entire play store self basically, we're like, oh, let's get a massage because the TV's was shit. It was we couldn't really do anything. And we didn't even know. Joe Philbin was in there. I was just questioning these English people that were massaging us about everything. I mean, I had a lot of questions a lot a lot of questions invented -tarian. I were kind of just tag team in the conversation there, and then I got on a hot run. I mean, I'm going to be honest. I don't think I've ever been that hot with the tongue. I was in there. I was just dropping thing bang, boom. Boom international jokes. Do I mean they were flying? And all of a sudden in Warner I hear a laugh a euro laugh in its Joe Philbin. Standing up to get dressed to leave. I. I had no idea. He was even in there. I was like oh shit. We didn't even know you're in there. Sorry about that. In his exact words were I've never gone a massage with another person before. But I hope I never get a massage without you again. And I was like crying. We're here like a fist bump and he walked out. And it was from that moment forward. We had a we started talking on a on a pretty regular basis of practice pretty regular basis. Good for you man comes full circle. And then you you call his last game as the interim head coach of the Packers. They scored zero points. It was tough very tough. But let's talk about you for second place. What's up? Sure you call college football game. Sometimes on me, you take a knee in the fucking both you wear incredibly nice, suits. You've got great hair. Good face. You're always working out. What is the endgame for a Jayhawk your audio ridiculously rich, everything in Columbus is free for you? Because you're in Ohio State legend, what is the endgame for O'day Jayhawk like what do you want to do? Endgame as in what like professionally as having two kids. Don't wanna have what we know you want a whole fucking navy seal unit children. We know that we understand that. You have an issue just like Phil rivers with pulling out and not just going for it every single time. And I appreciate that. Because people with your genes need to procreate just in case. There is another war. We need more AJ hawks out there. Just in case, there's another war. I respect that. I'm talking professionally though when does AJ hawk kind of what is the goal professionally. Do you want to get like Monday night football Sunday night football? You want to get in that game. Do you like doing your shows? You have one hundred different shows. What is AJ hawks life? Great christmas. I think Seattle I don't have wicked vision board right on my stuff. I don't have these goals right down to where I wanna be like, I'm super rocky right now. I I watch football. And I watched and I talked about both of them privilege, and like I do a show on Sirius XM couple of nights a week on an MA channel. It's strictly they'll football on it. And then I bounce around doing things everywhere on serious. I know buck cast co- college games did a whole Adidas high school game system this year in the Turner reps. Do engage, but also I want to always call. I would've been ownerless obligate. That's that's my number one thing. I always want do always want to get big in and get better and do better game. But honestly other than that. I don't have to go I go I wanna be I want coming through spot. I don't wanna be we're witness. I don't have a goal like that. I don't I don't know what it is. Like I want to keep doing what I'm doing. Like, I said, I'm lucky man. Like, I get to talk about what I like, you know, stuff that don't like I don't talk about like I can't fake. It offers to do radio in different shows on things like fantasy football. And I was like, bro. I wish I could fake it. But like, I have no passion for it and still understand it. So no things like that. I don't have to say yes to so like I'm gonna fortunate spot. I don't have any main like couple goals out there that I'm chasing the guy. I wanted to get better calling games and everything I do. I do a bunch of stuff on serious, and it's fun, man. I do it all from my house. So that's the best part about it. I don't have to go anywhere. That's my favorite part. And you fucking plow through like seven cigars a day to. It's unbelievable absolutely keeps me focused and probably a little bit. Like your little vitamin vape pen, you have respect you saw me pull out Jerry world. What a move by me. What a new belief casual pooper cash. That's the best part about. I'm a little bit west, dude. Like, yeah. And he talked to these you see like fifteen year olds in California. And they look at you like you're hundred years old if you if you didn't grow up eating edibles and third grade, and they do, and you just have that thing. So casual wherever you are like, it's no big deal. I'm like cool. I was never gonna question. You I feel like you carry yourself with that kind of swagger where it's like. Yeah. No one's gonna question. Just act as if then. I honestly whenever I you should see it Lambeau a whole other animal because it was I mean, we're standing, and it was the place was filled. Unlike Jerry world, which I yelled at for saying, but the places that was we were surrounded by people the booth right next to us in lambo is filled with people in their less than a foot and a half away from me inside of glass, though, warm and on the other side same thing and people in front of me, and it was like right before the game was about startles comparably not gonna be able to get one here for a little while. Just put it out as if it was just like I was supposed to be doing it. And I just put it back in my pocket and everybody just didn't even note. Everybody just didn't even act think twice about it. I was like I think we got away with this is right in the booth. Yeah. Not even in like the bathroom in the booth. Good for you. I mean people walk around Spokane tobacco. Vape pens all day. So that's all you. That's what it was. It was. Yeah. Yeah. Of course, that's I mean, come on. Honestly, I mean, it makes everything better it tastes better. It's the vitamins, it's just the vitamins one. It was good. But yeah, I mean, it helps me out a lot. There's a lot of different platforms. Now, you did some work with does on the. You're in Green Bay you're going to do a little bit more of that. You have the hawk cast. Are you like a one? Are you a small business is the hawk a small business over there? No, I'm not like the Pat McAfee Inc. Small business owner what you call it a small business. I can't go to business. We have eighty thousand square foot warehouse where he guys just Ford around and shoot three pointers tipped off. All during the day it trail this great content. So that's not a small business. Now, I am talking. A me. I just hang out, man. I get to. I don't know. I get to talk about what I like. And I the thing is to people worked on you. But a lot of guys that I've worked with at different times or come across. They wanna get on like the first take type shows where they get on a panel. And they're they're five days a week. And they just argue over whatever the topics are when they have these hot takes we all know about and I've done that every once in a while he'll shows in I just don't care like there's so many things that I just don't have opinion. I think that Patrick Mahomes is better than Shawn Watson. But, but, but but it was really hard for me to be like, okay, man. Well, that's European. You know? You know, I was on Joe. It was really hard for me to be like it was isn't that terrible man like deep Todd. My brother-in-law Brady Quinn. He loves doing that stuff, and he'll sit there and try to tell me who actually question we we'll we'll close where our shows on on the NFL. And there'd be times when he brings up a certain topic or something, and I'm like Radi. I don't care all I don't have an opinion one way or the other on this just blew get. Let's get past it and who like he loves to debate. And I think a lot of people do like to debate. And I don't even like the big stuff on passionate about. So when I don't care someone's trying to make me take a side. There's no chance of doing the I thought you might be a quarterback thing might be a quarterback thing. That's love skills. Like, all right. A little off ski in. This was a couple months ago. So this might have changed, but he was calling games. And he was going on TV he was doing a breakdown of film and shit with the touch screen. But then he was getting into a lot of Bates. I mean. Yeah, I seen as ass every fucking morning debating somebody. So I was like, oh, do you. Do you like calling games or do you like waking up and just argue with people that was exactly what I said it, and he said I enjoy the debates like you said to me, and then he broke down. He says because it makes them feel good whenever they win. Whenever. It's like a winning point. It makes him he feels like there's no winners. There's no winners. The list the viewers the viewers are the winners the view, Dan too smart, dude. And he's all places where like you. But you're right. Maybe it's a quarterback thing. You're I don't know. But I just there's I just don't have an opinion on a lot of things. It's tough. It's tough to give like you. Do you like if they if they give you a rundown of eight things? Okay. We're gonna talk about this. Well, the one thing I'm not I promise you that. I'm very vocal about it. When I d radio with when people try to dispute the goat who's grace about time. All these different sports. I'd rather blow my head off like I'm not there. So subjective. There's no answer. So that I guess that's I I I don't rule anything out. But I doubt that I would be doing like a studio consistent studio show in the center. Hey, we're about to get into who's the goat debate season here after football ends. And there's nothing else to do just that is the news cycle. Sports news cycle is just. Who has the best shoes? If you look at Deakin king good top straight to put you on and make me taller. It's on. The worst thing is that people will watch it. These guys are such idiots. What they were doing. All right. It's unbelievable. I it's a great business. I enjoyed. It's just not my Cup of tea more. One of the exact I put it on their people watch. I don't. Some of the shows some of the show, I think. At that at that out to be honest because I'm in fucking go. She Asians with every single one of them AJ who's gonna win this weekend. On this episode football talk with hawk who's gonna win this weekend. Man. Okay. Let's ram saints. Boy, I came as in New Orleans. So how many times have you played in the dome there? I've played down there. One time we lost by forty five. Yeah. I think I've played their twelve times lost twelve times. Like we. We got blasted every time. I was there. It's a tough place to play is because it's it's not the nicest, don't let's not it's not the nicest dome. But boy whenever that who that nation starts who'd adding and yelling and just rolling in off bourbon. I mean, it's it is a it isn't rumpus atmosphere in there. And once that buzzsaw gets going the drew Brees buzzsaw, it's tough to stop. I don't know how the Rams beat the saints, honestly, especially after role in two hundred thousand dollars in with the Lombardi trophy saying win three fucking games. If you want that by Sean Payton, you like that move. Yeah. Sure man would ever motivate your nothing motivates money. I know that much in doing problem with he grows in two hundred in cash, and so my head coach, hey, take about one twenty then away for taxes, please like so much that at that moment, which I don't want to worry about that. But you know, what if I had to pick? This was a hotcakes. Hell I I don't know. Why maybe I'm I'm one of the people that's eight all bays doing. I I like the roads. I think they could do it. The Rams could go in there. And they could find a way to get a win. Just don't let the saints get up on your like a been there when we've been down like ten nothing fourteen nothing early. When once they get the momentum rolling. You like you said the crowd is crazy. It's just tough to to get it back. So if the Rams have a decent start, I think the Rams combined away to win. Yeah. And you're completely wrong because Sean Payton and boys down in New Orleans. They've been just working their tails off really ever since fake. Punt I feel like they have this game strategy in the right players to go ahead and break through the walls of that. Los ange. Rams team headed up by kid genius. So everything you just said was stupid. Oh, yeah. We're debating if someone is someone in the studio given points to one of our sites. It was so hard to do that. I was trying to piece together that sentence there to tell you stupid. It was it was getting difficult. I'm the honest. I'm not great at it. Normally pretty good talker. Can't do that. Let's go to the AFC. Tom. Brady's Tom Brady. Still Tom Brady is that what we're saying. Man. Look at you like Seguin legit host, Pat like all right now. The F C now. Shift AJ, no shit. AJ Jesus episode like six thousand forty and you do things all over the place. But yeah, I can't smell the chiefs. It's going to be a people talk about the weather in Kansas City. What's it gonna be like, well, I feel like if it's cold that helps the patriots out even more. They're used to playing it that it would idiom, but and the patriots can run the ball now to man, so they can beat you many multiple different ways. I mean, the cheese is great. But I think that I just have a hard time picking against the patriots. It's like going to the national title game. I was like man I look at Alabama like look at the patriots always have a hard time picking against their just something about when they got smoked by Clemson. But I'm going to have to take the patriots. Did you see Tom Brady and his turtleneck after the game say to that very the shorter lady? He said everybody thinks we suck. It'll be fun. We'll see he said in with like a thing. And then the many men song the day afterwards. If feels. Yeah, it feels like they have. Yeah. On the treadmill? Look at getting after it the day after by just look at Tom Brady, no days off hashtag. But it feels like they have somehow convince themselves that they're the underdogs in this whole thing in they're the best dynasty in the history of the NFL. It's incredible. Yeah. It is. I mean, hey, what do whatever it takes? Not Tom Brady. All degrade was chip on the shoulder. Keep throughout the whole time when he was drafted late whatever, but they actually are which with their their three point underdogs. I think in this game. Yeah. It's unbelievable. I mean, the probably not I it's it's not air on the road who gives a single fuck. Tom Brady is one more playoff games than any other quarterback is appeared. I it's I hate it. I hate I don't like I don't like it. I don't like it because it's just their standard there. So Donna patriots. Anyone that watched last week? It looked like doesn't mean the duplicated next week. But they looked like the the patriots of old almost like gronk Etta wins back Rockwood good. He's knocking people all over the place. Tom looked amazing. They can run the ball. Their defense looks good. Like, they they know a great team the regular season cool. Yeah. They're trying to win. But they don't freak out. Like, they understand like all this stuff. Only art season starts in January. Season's over and the patriots have better than anybody. So that's why I love what they're doing. But pem homes pretty good those from multiple different Armando spat in case you haven't heard when you watch broadcasts. Yeah. That's. Panna homes is the second coming rich. He's the guy that can really throw at any angle. But Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in that old guy. Tough be AJ. I appreciate you so much man for joining us. Thanks, man. Good to be with you. Did you hear what I sounded? Like there. Yeah. What were you doing? That's what you sounded. Like for like the last four minutes of that interview, raise they're doing. I can tell. I can tell do that. I know that's in your on a roll in. It's not like I can interrupt you because you're on a such. It's just one of those. It's a technology prime. No. It's not your bed. You're on an incredible run. This is not your fault. We blame. Tim cook. Well, yeah. Even innovated anything nothing buddy died fucking nothing. They've done nothing since oh buddies died except for the airports. I'm a big fan of the Airbus. I had them in today. Yeah. Yeah. I wear. Well, I got weird years they don't fit. They don't stay in. Okay. Can you put any headphones inside of your? Yeah. I don't I is this is this. So so what I do he taking a phone away from your mouth? Okay. Here any more. I can't put my phone has been stuck in my mouth this whole time. Whoa. What? Don't you? Honestly, if you're playing with me and doing the delay on purpose your dad like are you serious? What was that? Right. I mean now I'm gonna assume it's been on purpose. Like, you're throwing the fake delay at me. So I don't even know if I can smooth. But I still still on the show. We just. I think it's over now. Had a good run there. What do you think you ask you something though? The dump fake delay to derail the whole combo. Oh, yeah. Yeah. Yeah. So the airports are the only ones that go into my your that can stay in my ear 'cause I've weird shaped ear. So like any of the other ones that you're supposed to shove in there? I can't do I gotta do the outer ear headphones until the air pods. Are the only ones that have been able to because I think they hook. They're down my face down my jaw whenever it comes out it hooks onto my face. And that's I think that's why I like it because it's the only headphone that I've been able to wear that doesn't have to be the full getting caboodle. You know what I mean? That nice big square strong jaw. So they I guess they moved them just for you. I've been dieting have you see even checking out my Jolla, have you seen it on the internet? It's been pretty good. Yeah. That's what called the craze for talk about. I've heard that it also I view you tweeted out have you tweeted or Instagram to picture, the the kind of cute might delete later situation. What? No, the whole memes going around. I'm a thermostat thermometer. K? I set the temperature on there. I don't tell it. The why I even asked you that. I thought I might have seen you put a little weird cheeky picture out. I did a ten years challenge thing. So everything I just said in that statement is a complete lot. 'cause everybody else doing it. So I I lied to you there. What is the key kinda cute may delete later? What does that kinda cute might Dewey later? It's like the home means going around guys in there about foxy knows that foxy what does it? Yeah. It's like a millennial thing so girls oppose the selfie like kinda cute might delete later. So it's like I wanna put a picture that is what I would normally get roasted for exactly, but I might delete it. It's been ideal by good PR move by whoever started that to kind of get the trend going in like I want to post a selfie of me without getting roasted by humans or judged. So. That's what it is. Have you posted one Mr. Hawke? No, I have not trying to think of a good one. I figured it. Of course, you'd be on it. But it makes sense. I mean, you're you said, you're you're setting you're setting the tone. You're not following what everybody else is doing all might do the ice bucket challenge here in other week. All right. Well, see Letterman. Sounds good. I'll talk to you. Hey, good luck. With those kids. I hope that eight year old did well through this whole time. We talked for a little bit here. Media. I'm assuming everything's good. The house is not fire yet. So we're we're all good. Thank you would be. Why would you walk downstairs to an entire like crime-scene, basically where like maybe they just completely destroyed the kitchen just completely took everything out of the pantry maybe open some bags? I don't know if they are allowed to eat chips over there with how healthy you are. But if there are a lot of chips, they dumped those what if there's just an entire like it. What if an explosion has happened while this interview is happening is that on me? Or is that on you know, there's not a new path? But I mean, honestly respect three times a week or that kind of thing happen three. You think you could trust wake is just gonna I'm gonna go take a leak quick outback? Crossed you.

Mahood producing each night before like in the hotel. He had he was real Chuck book on was one of the most hilarious coaches. I've ever heard speaking. I mean that it's like a standup bit every time he got up in there. And we talk about a little bit here on the show later, but he was rolling rolling rolling in. Then something distracted him to a kid. Somehow. He thought somebody's kid, and then his head just couldn't he was he wanting to fool like how to be a dad mode, and it was like a seven minute. Detour that we give them a hug don't come on. I Pat, and then all of a sudden we're back into tomorrow fucking. It was one of the most magical modes of ever seen in a team beating I think I dived live. I honestly, I think he's gonna do. Well, Chicago, I think he is. I think the boys are going to be flying around for her. He's got enough on that defense man, who I think they're going to be good. They're gonna be good for a little while it's gonna be fun to watch. We'll see if they're better than your guy. Matlock flora excited. See if that works out AJ hawk data of the year. That's football talk with the hawk. Thanks AJ. Thank you.

He's smart s any as a resume that lets them do whatever he wants, right? He can say whatever he wants about football. Nobody can tell him any differently because his resume is one that can be stacked up against anybody. Yeah. That's what I told. You. I wasn't that happy with the Packers higher. Saw AJ tweet that he was actually excited for it. I was like maybe I should reconsider because I respect ages opinion. He's friends with the guy didn't even know had no idea. It was quarterback coach I was just talking to this guy. Good guy goes into the Packers. That's what he basically said. AJ hawks said shot up to him. And by the way, if you're gonna play daddy duty to four hundred kids like what he does over there. You're gonna be exhausted. Oh, yeah. Especially after a forty minute heart interview with me. I don't let people get out of here easy. I I make them go through mental Gymkhana if they. Gonna get through a conversation me bigs Austin. Exhausted. He'll be tired. Maybe a little sleepy. Oh dozy. Although nappy nap you're looking for. I recommend that he gets the best mattress on planet earth. So that when he wakes up he's recharged reset in re covered in Rury. Eighty ready. I really thought I was gonna make it work there in my brain. I saw the Ari, and I just went for it there, you know, re cover recharge reset. And then my brain just saw ready, but we were in the re you know, what I mean? So it's tough. But you get at least a sleep is the only mattress that you need, and you don't have to go to the stupid mattress stores anymore. You don't as mattress store? So they're stupid. I agree. What do you do your roll around in somebody else's sweat? This bet comfortable you have no idea got like forty five people staring at you is this what I was going to be in your house. Maybe you state of mind could potentially be on whether or not you're comfortable. And now what you're rolling around and old Palmiers fucking sweat from two days ago in the same bed. No way. No way. Lease it did everything that they could to make sure the you never have to experience that disgustingness. Again, Lisa delivers the mattress right to your doorstep. That's all they do. And what this new program to make the world a better place. For every ten that they sell the giveaway one bed to somebody that doesn't have one. They donate a mattress one in ten program. They've donated more than thirty one thousand mattresses in counting foxy. Yes, sir. Just about a week ago. Maybe five days ago, you got a chance to showcase a math part of your brain that the whole world doubt. It it doesn't really exist. But you hit it right on the head. Yes. I did one in ten program. They've donated thirty one thousand mattresses, which means they've sold roughly three hundred and ten thousand mattresses still hoping that he would get that one. No, no. Yeah. I was hoping that there was a chance I memorize that one go you memorize so you didn't do the equation again, simply because you've already figured it out. If you memorize the answer exactly that a point. That's how you do. It's like when you cheat on something you just memorize it. Absolutely test. Yeah. It is. And guess what you pass? Thank you. You know, why you pass that test because you're well rested. Sleep on a lease asleep badgers.

Start two thousand nineteen while rusted well-rested get one hundred sixty dollars off Leesa mattress that Lisa dot com slash McAfee im-, by the way, it is a forward slash it is a forward slash. So what I learned on the internet after we had this very reasonable discussion. That ninety percent of America would have on this particular if it looks as if the line is leaning forward, it's a forward slash if it looks like the line is leaning backwards to backward slash that makes sense. Does doesn't it? Yeah. Yeah. But I would think that if it was leaning forward that's going from forward to back. I agree. And then back the front is the other way. So so that's not right though. By the way, every if you're confused right now, remember that little thing a little dash. There is a little homie. If he's leaning forward. That's a Ford slash Lou home Chiloe lean back. That's a mother fucking backslash. All right Ford slashes with the question, Mark. Shares shares the spot on the keyboard with the question, Mark. Okay.

Always when we got on that tiny little fucking plane. We flew to buffalo was the first game of the year. It was our first plan. So is our first time traveling that year, it was the first year that there was a new sheriff in the building running things, and we get on a tiny little fucking plane tiny planes, one of the it was it was one of those planes have like three on one side three on the other. And then he got an down. And it was short it. When the team travels, it's all the front office. It's all the sponsors or some sponsors in there. Nancy entire team in the coaches in. There's some VIP's in their if they pay so it's plane was jam packed Costanzo sitting right behind me and personas like six seven I think three hundred and probably forty pounds and he's in the aisle seat rate. Bind me his right knee is digging into my back in his left. Knee is like what I'm putting my arm on his left knees rate there, and I turn around on my test on. So he's like, I'm always uncomfortable. I just trying to be like I'm like, I'm like sort of looking around. I'm like this is this is what a downgrade from. Whenever we were winning. We're flying in bigger planes. As soon as we land soon as we land, Chuck it's off the bus. I and Grigson get off the bus first. And then I'm on bus three. Normally, it's me and Viteri in the front and then like the defense is right behind us. And we get off the bus. I we go into like the the lobby of the hotel. And I go to Chuck he's sunglasses on his headphones on and I'm like pull your fucking headphones out. He's glad like we're not flying another plane ever the fuck again. What we're not flying on the fucking plane ever. This is the National Football League, man. Wedged in God damn like a try to impeach the gum. The same amount of space is the fucking Huntington Bank people. He's got to go to battle tomorrow. And you've got him just crammed in here. Why are we doing this? Wish you think I'm picking the plane. Puts up to his room and Viteri like what do you say? What he say? He just asked me thought he was picking. So then later that night. And I thought it may be junk like might have been pissed off at me for this. Because was right in front of every in front of everybody that I did this and every everybody on the same page as me this is another situation where I was I just so happen to be the deliverer the news. That's why I love about. This point seventeen years. What he's so. Then we go up to our rooms you get like two hours before we have a team meeting or whatever special teams meeting and then a team meeting and all that shit. So we go to the room. I pass out. I come back downstairs main veneer sitting at like, a one of our dinner tables, which is normally connected to where the team meeting is immune vintages sitting there, and Chuck comes and sits down next to me. And he's like his f- letting shorts you know? And I was like you prepared for that big speech tonight. Or what was the first week? You know, and he was like, oh, yeah. I've been waiting for this one. You know, I'm ready ago. And I was like did you do in writing on the plane or were you to fucking uncomfortable? She's never going to stop. Oh, chuck. This is me every day. You know that? And he was like this is the NFL, Pat. Awesome. He and I had a really good relationship until we didn't. And then we got. He was a lot of fun at your comedy show. Man. I was like this guy is the real deal is a human. You know, he's a stand up comedian book, I'm excited to you guys. Just got so for those that are listening. Chuck Pagano is going to be on this show next week. Which is used by the way, that's a pretty gigantic get there for he's a Newt D coordinator for the Chicago Bears. He that's the reason why kick them on the show today, by the way because he hasn't officially announced. Chicago Bears with the local press. And I hundred percent understand that he's got to talk to the local press worse. He's gonna come on next week in. There was like a little ten minute conversation. I had with him. I talk to him in a while. It was literally just like it was just right. Like, we're right back into locker room. And he's I'm excited for Chicago to get the gnome. What is it Chicago Chicagoans? Yeah. It's like, you don't know. Somebody wrote call the radiance to me. Yeah. That's a real Floridians. But I reading it. I thought it was talking idiot. Cholorine? He said come. I sorta using context come to. I thought that could have been like a store. I don't know. Because you didn't capitalize see. Yeah. Yeah. I was questioning me though for a long time. But we got there. Minneola and hall, Rodman's Riggins. That's where Chuck from though, by the way, boulder or Colorado. Awesome town, go buffs. I don't know if he played for played for Wyoming from what I thought he played for Wyoming. But he lives now in I think he has a house in Boise because he told there I want through his God damned thing. It's a long list his career. Yes. Southern California started out as a GE then he went to university of Miami. And Florida, by the way, anytime I mentioned Miami's someone in Florida Miami to then he goes, the Boise ECU UNLV back to ECU back the Miami to Cleveland, you haven't really coach in the NFL until you get fired from he did that goes to Oakland. Then he becomes North Carolina's D coordinator for one year becomes the Baltimore Ravens secondary. Coach. Then the ravens D coordinator for a year. Then coats said coach, then he was working for the NFL. Now, he's the Bercy coordinating. Geez. Jury Tina just travel around been around a lot of those fucking coaches if you look at their Wikipedia they've all had like fucking twenty jobs. They so committed because once you get to that upper-echelon there's a lot of fucking money. Oh, yeah. A lot of these dudes. No, nothing outside football. No getting out of jail. Honestly mcmahon. I'm gonna ask if I went back to go ching. He was reading rent was here. Bruce was about to do just working in a grocery store next. God goddamn, Trent green and. Goes into his hotel room after the game, Tresor hang. He didn't. Yeah. I don't think anyone really they probably felt pretty out of place there. There's some people that are listening to our show for the first time on a very regular basis. Now, this show each show seems to be like that. I get some hilarious tweets from people. And then I go through for us, man. The Zito gets good reaction. What do you mean? They question if you're a real human. They ask if you're a character. You know, like Donnie Baker something like they ask if you're a character, and I don't respond, but in my head, I'm like, I don't think so that's actually. The same thing. Still think is a character. You just play. I mean, he lets see to out every once in a while. And it's nothing like I've ever seen them. Maybe wanna spend a lot of time with them. Well, that's the thing is I'm kind of always off doing something. And then I see him in spurts in amount and back. He's gimmick. Twenty really nice. Really nice guy. Real nice, brain, intelligent wise. It's guy just a standard basic. I don't know. I mean are basic level lease that I don't think he meets. There's a lot. It'll surprise you need more things that coming. I I honestly think that he looks up the dumb things that he says like I think he preps. Dump things I will say that twenty three ACT twenty three. Told me take another one. I was like no you took ACT. Just no that's pretty good. How do I think about sixteen hundred SAT backyard that we took the sixteen hundred east coast thing, I did really fucking good on it, by the way. I think I did because we had a teacher that gave us we had a calculator. Mrs rocket rock cat, everybody. Hated this lady. Everybody hater. But she was just a she's a looney toon. That's what she wants us. All those fuck ownership lost her mind, but she gives you a TI Texas Instruments. And she gets you to go ahead in just cheek code that entire SAT if you paid attention to in her class at all she gave you all the cheeky I had her. She prepped are Coursey entire year to get ready to take the SAT's. We told her all year lady, we already took them. We took him to sort the year. I don't know what to tell you. Oh, you might be one or two people in here retaking them, but we're all set. Zita? What was your profession before you came here? My actual degree is parks recreation. But like what did you do? Engineered light poles. Yeah. But you always. When you're working in the last profession, you're always shirtless in in your room. Yeah. I told them that I had a sickle out here. And they work from home. We're always finessing. It's next level sickle. Sure. Telephone. I don't even know if you have to engineer him at this point, right? Doesn't nineteen those things. Yes, you plan when they go and you put the attachments on there's like the power box and all that stuff. The wires might one of my first time ever getting on a private plane. It was a small one tiny little one. It was my original agent. Set up this flight from me from Nashville to Morgantown after Thursday night football game in Tennessee. Thursday night football happens. We win I go out with a bunch of people from Nashville that I guess I knew at the time. I don't really. I don't know how I got linked up with them. I've no clue and we'd guy wrote American Honey the song American Honey, I don't know how I don't remember how I met him to be honest. I think it was a was that Sex's on fire group? Kings. Leeann leeann concert played ping pong backstage smoked everybody met this guy. He was writing us either opening for Kinsley on or doing something with them. We kept in touch via somehow Thursday night game happens. I'm like, hey, I'm going to stay the night. National urban in Nashville was just going to go do it myself. And we linked up at he had like a limo for me like we allow we wouldn't we wouldn't did Nash the private. There's like private clubs in Nashville that it's only members only to get in because I guess of so many countries I couldn't remember what they look like they're having a night. I guess she ended up. He dropped me off back at the hotel is like four five AM. I had this white, and I think it was like eight or nine and the only previous private plane time I'd had was Peyton in. It was a good point. So I show up at where I'm supposed to show up at which my agent set up this flight with these two Italian guys from Pittsburgh. We're going to drop me off in Morgantown on the way home. It's their plane. We get to the private plane place. I am terribly hung over. I think I I think I ate a pretty large edible is wall to beat the hangover, and I walk out onto the private plane thing, I'm like, which ones hours boys are walking through. It's like a regular size. It was a. Over here to the left, man. And I was like I looked at it. And I was like, I don't even know guys. They're telling though gay from Pittsburgh. That's really up two. True. Very true. I would say are talion community and Pittsburgh are all good people except for the ones that aren't. Yeah. Yeah. Except for the ones that aren't except for the ones that the one percent get a whole community by a few guys. No too often. We judge a community by their worst examples has opposed to the some of the majority. Well, said I think George Bush it did actually. Thank you did. Well, somebody wrote it he said it though. Designed for comfort usually the passengers don't actually make it to where we go. Yeah. So we get on. So I I have to turn left at his plane at this moment, I just met these guys my agent of set it up he took a regular plane home. So it's just meeting these random guys walking onto this tiny plane, and I had a pretty large edible. And I started having a moment with my son's like, no, no they're saying how it is, bro. So right before we get on a plane. They asked me how much I weigh and stuff like that. The first time I've ever been on a plane and ask me how much how much bag ways and I'm like, I'm not getting on this. So I look on my phone if there's any flights from the commercial from Morgantown or national Pittsburgh, no Flint on that nationally. Right. I mean, there's next no flights. So I had a moment there where I had to I had to get on this blatant. So get on his plane, and I'm sitting up there. And I see the full. I mean, I'm sitting basically behind the driver, you know. And then somebody's sitting shotgun on a plane. And then somebody's sitting backsied there's two of us backsied headphones on so I can hear everybody talking. It's a situation, you just meet Mason. And we get up there in the one guy, the Italian guy, the wanna tell you. I looks me Ingles. Oh, you see that path there? I made that path and I was like real, and I looked down and it was just out in the middle of the woods. It was a bunch of telephone poles with wires through. Yeah. I basically shred all these trees and tropical trees and make them disappear. And kinda just made the happen. So in my head in my head. I'm like this guy. Yeah. This guy definitely takes bodies. Yeah. Yeah. It doesn't make him guy though. No do depends on finger asking. Yes. If you're the guy going into the woods. Got it that guy deserved it. So now my mind in the plane every single wind gusts that's happening. Over said force that has been cleaned out by the would chippers. Going up down. So now, I'm either dying from a plane crash from woodchip, right? And I am full on in the middle of an edible trip. And we finally get to where Morgantown is like, I see it on the little thing. They have like a little dot on their little screen, and like, oh it can't land right now. And I was like this. Completely dead. And I we land I kissed the ground kiss the ground. Kiss the ground like the puck and pope. I think read picked me up one of my college roommates picked me up, and he saw me like kissing the ground, and I get into his car. I'm like are those over? Talking talking about it was like I thought I was going to happen. Thought I was gonna we're him down. And he was telling me about it stud. Telling him about it. And he was like that guy. Definitely said that just the fuck with you. And I was like what do you mean? He was like, well, if I had a guy that was just tripping balls like you are right now, you can't even open your fucking. Potentially murder. Good for that gun. And I never talked to that guy. Good. But I would like to give him a compliment. I think it was real. I think it's really what he does. He seemed comedy knew exactly what it was. He was like whatever it's this type of tree. It's a little someone's going to do it. Yeah. You don't know if he probably not killing them. He's just getting rid of the body has he was a nice guy too. They were real nice guy. I don't think I ever properly. Thank them. Out of the plane down on my knees. Just kissing it. And I'm like, hey, great flake just the fact that he had to make his own runway little suspect. Don't you? It was there was the Delfa knows Hayes. It was Hayes. He there was a there was a big the telephone pole. This store. That's the difference between this show. Engineers telephone posted in my head. I thought the time the plane with two talion sticking I was dead 'cause he clears wires for telephone. He clear streets. He clears the path. So they can run the railroad tracks you have to clear out all the trees. He does that for the telephone. Should. He's a good guy. I don't honestly don't know if I've ever thank them. You just did there. Listening complete forgot that it happened to just to that. Because I thought if you fucking building one of the telephone poles, and I was like oh little Zito Downer in if I would have seen that while looking out the plane. I probably would have a moment of happy. Pure fear transforms on there too. Yes. Like through the cat program out pro stuff. And then we give it to our actual like the people drew so no where to place it exactly to drawings. Imagine. Like my eighty percent like I was gonna ask that eighty percent. You're giving yourself. Get it. You got it. Yeah. Screen shotting other telephone poles. Feels like he gets really deep into it. But like every street has its own clearance. And like, you gotta like put the poll certain spot, and how deep the poll you get into this actually don't know. I just showed up. Few sticks ground. I hated running softball leagues. I got boring, and I was just like ask the whole time. Rectory? That. And then he went to. Red whole segue. Yeah. I hated running softball leagues. So I started like Where'd that come from? Yeah. Well, everybody knows that there's indicator reads for things. If you rolling dice and a five comes nine probably coming if you quit making softball leagues you go Bill. Indicate. If this if this then. Exactly how it was. It's true. It's absolutely pretty huge games coming in this week. Correct. I think we're talking to a football player later. Okay. I'm gonna try to AJ hawk on. AJ in a while. I needed dose of AJ Hawkins life. I guess does own was thinking about doing something with US Super bowl week you in Asia. Yeah. I don't know if it's me and AJ I don't know what it's going to be. He's done work with his own zone is reach out to me to do some stuff. So that's kind of me just assuming that they're gonna put us together. If you're smart. Yeah. Okay. I don't know if I've agreed to that deal, by the way that that's happened on the show couple times where I've said somebody's made me an offer. Correct. And then it goes viral. I saw. Try to company. Is calling me yelling at me while I'm in the only hotel in limbo? Keep track. Oh, what do you do this telling my life here? It was literally a throwaway line. And I was trying to get to the green big. By the way. They offer me deal. That's awesome dream come true. Anyways this weekend who's a throwaway line for me. Veteran shows how honest with the listeners podcast is. Yeah. That's the purpose of podcasts. Live in life and reporting it we've never liked him. You do something. I have never lied. Never lied. There was a time where you on the show were known as like false facts Dick's. Yeah. But that was a lie true is using that still happens. I feel like the village idiot thing is going about toss Dover room to torches. The king. Hey, thrown us coming back to our episodes at trying to fucking ruin don't they know they have to last season. They gotta fit a lot of lot of story Ledley a movie every fucking weekend. Well, that's I guess the actors and actresses were like, yeah, we were miserable by the that shoot. They're getting paid. What's that? You very long shoots. I suppose. Said they were taking like certain episodes, like just scenes of certain episodes took upwards of like fifty to sixty days to film. That's awesome together. Perfectionist? Cd guy running a throne so good all those actors get launched in the multi-million dollar acting careers all of them get movies out of it. Doc was just in bodyguard. Thrones is the biggest thing out there for us. It really is. Whenever game of thrones comes on people change. It's a whole different thing. You'd people become thrown. It's legit everyone. Talks about for two months. It's tough. When be honest somebody that hasn't watched in. I will I can't catch. I did you try less time. Try my best. It was the first episode because you guys are all jacked up. Everybody was jacked up about a game of thrones game of thrones giving what is it season eleven seven. Big time throw. Season. It's going to be the last one season seven. I did it just like I did the informal games. Yeah. Just like I didn't. You get. No, you actually combine the new movie. That's amazing who the new movies called endgame in the one where the cousin does this at the same Jackson shows up. How? He's an everyone. You know that though because you. Game of thrones. I tried my best there for a little bit knowing that God damn dragging hopped out flu go to do it. Dearly ones because it's like a political drama different setting. Now, it's towards the end they had to get more fantastical, and it's rampant entourage, right entre. Started out as something you can see happening. And then they were like we're in fucking season four, and we never thought we were. So we just have to make everything that's what happened with game of thrones started adding on adding on adding on this loosely photo series of books, but they pass them. So now, it's the point where they're kind of just making it up on you rather Gama's runs book. Have you Jesus figures like four thousand pages tie you? Good stuff. Oh, my God did Kristalina. I just saw him. Do something on his podcast. Chris long reposted it. Chris said if somebody ever send you a text that says. Tell me when you have a moment for a call. It's too long to text. Let them know that there are books out there. There are thousands of pages. Not too long. It was a Larry's. No it was so expensive. I love them. I'm not paying a hundred twenty dollars. I I would be interested to see the business side behind that. Because it's worth thinking about going on a tour, and by we I mean, I'm starting to put it in motion here. The boys will be with me on this -ly started putting in motion kinda keep it moving. And I put a post on the Instagram and was like, hey comment below with a city that you would like to see us come through Dallas show the fuck out. I saw fuck. Trying to douse. Hey, Dallas showed up there. I had no idea got a couple of Canadian because he's a wanted up their Fairfax or something like that. But Dallas was the most mind blowing to be on. Like, there's a lot of Dallas as I saw all through there. Let's go sit. It is never been used to get a lot of people from Texas Coenen Florio show that kinda makes sense. It does make sense. So that'll be a good time down there. But the business behind going on tour is an interesting one. It is a very very very very very interesting one in. I mean that. As somebody who is just all I do is rent the theater, and so the tickets myself, so it's it's literally me trying to figure out the best pricing. So that we don't we want? Everybody to be like. Yeah. That was worth it. That was the right price. So the goal for those listening, the the people that are going to be paying the most probably listen show, anyways, they're just buying tickets. So they can flex what they're grows or whoever their with on the interim. We up the price of the VIP. Now granted they get like a fucking three hour meet-and-greet 'cause I don't shut up. Normally, I talked everybody and they get a picture, but we up the price of the VIP tickets. So that we can keep the price of the rest of the room down. So basically, we add an extra twenty five dollars onto the VIP tickets. So that we can keep the rest of the room down ten dollars than what we have to. So that it's a profitable trip for everybody. You know, and that is a way to get a crowd in there that you want right? Like, I I did a show where somebody else priced it. And I was just like making appearance basically, and they had a price. So high in the crowd was just not the crowd that I I wanna crowd. That's like a weird to have. This is going to be a house party, basically it I'm just going to be telling you stories. My friends are going to tell stories we're gonna be drinking beers here. I wanna group that is not interactive. Because if I'm telling a story just chill the fuck out, and you'll feel it out when you. Feel it out when we also Todd too. I mean, there are some times where people were chirping it'd middle Todd stories that last show where I was taught about the hit the punch. Twenty seven f duro f- just fucked completely over so. But the business side is very interesting. Whenever you get into that where you're like. All right. We still gotta keep a good atmosphere and there, but we also need to make enough money. So we could pay everybody and everything. So it's a fine, balancing Krista Leo's, just like fuck it. We're going to have one hundred and fifty and sixty five dollar tickets insane. Yeah. But if you're selling two thousand of those tickets in crystal is a funny fucking guy assume he's like I don't care who's paying that amount of money there. You have a good fucking show other ones that I saw a lot of Minnesota starlet Philly and the DMV so Charlotte's big West Virginia grad city, so you go to West Virginia. Then somehow you end up tries me a little bit. So I don't know how honestly have no maybe a bunch of alumni from WVU of sort of businesses, and Charlotte they hire. I don't know how that works because I think there's a lot of schools that have cities that normally Charlotte. I'm a big fan of Charlotte. Pinned down there numerous times, I'm a big fan of Charlotte. But I think that's a WVU pipeline almost that's a hell of a drive Pittsburgh pipeline to a lot of people Pittsburgh moved down to Charlotte. Whether it's a hell of a drive if we were to do a tour. Driving? I wanna I wanna do Burke pressures on a tour right now. He's got a bus. Looking good look for him. Yeah. Absolutely Birdman grinding grinding varieties. He shows too much of himself. Oh, no, no. I don't mind that it's like when he gets on his I g store and he gets comfortable, and he's getting bored. And he just start showing his ass. Full negative Birt's. I'm here to laugh man fucking shit. These tours name is body shots world story. I would like to know why it's world like you do one show. Love Burke, anywhere Canada. Burt shows probably pretty similar to ours. That assume his guests now. No the. Show. Now granted he's the machine, obviously, he is shirtless up there, and he used to do those shows that were like he called him something like play hooky from work or take the day off work, and it would be like a Friday show at noon, and he would just go on state drink beers take shirt off who's gonna tell stories. The guy can drink in a credible amount of I mean, Mason jars. He's got the fucking thirty party with the Russian, mafia. He what he robbed his own fucking class with the Russian mafia while sloughing. Real van wilder. But I soon his shows are much like a party like time. Yeah. In that way. It's very similar because he is one who appreciates the fact people came. So he will party afterwards. And that is the thing. It's like if somebody's gonna pay for a ticket. I want them to feel good about the thing. I want you to feel good about the price of your bang. So that there isn't a a I'm trying to fight the battle of after the I'm trying to set expectations. So I'm not gonna make this a five hundred. You're not gonna see a fucking violinist up here. This is not a classically trained pianist up here going to work where they've been slaving their entire lives on the fucking. What are those called? I've ary they've been sleeping on the ivory their entire life since their children getting whipped in there. We're gonna we're twenty five bucks twenty bucks for the crowd. And then we get the VIP's like the two hundred bucks. They're gonna pay anyways. And they don't even know, but they're doing a service to the entire. Yeah. When you buy the via -peutic, you're doing a service to everybody else in the room because you're eating up any of the prices that we have to raise for the back. Correct. I think it's smart. Smart smart businesswoman. You still tossing around the eating greed idea? I think so that's the best idea of background band. Nailed it. They nailed it. They absolutely nailed it. You do these meet-and-greet s- in there, always terribly uncomfortable. Sure. They're always terribly awkward because it's a small talk conversation. I want you to feel as if we're having a long conversation. But then there's always a time limit. And then we got there's always a time limit, and I got a whole line of people. So I feel bad. I'm like how you paid so much fucker money for this. I am so sorry. But there's a line of thirty nine people literally thirty. We did the math. Yeah. I actually picked people. Yeah. Forty your there's thirty nine people behind you. So we gotta do is. So it stuff the eaten greet thing. You get a chance to meet everybody conversation has to move because the food has cure going engine. Get more people in their genius by in my head. Oh, you're gonna hate it because if people are chewing, and you're just getting their food, then I'll see Zito did this to us one night when we were out. We were enjoying a nice dinner had a few drinks we were kind of intoxicated late in the night. And these these people came up and Zito invite the city the table with us and hang out with us, and he even took food took food off of our plate and gave it to them. It was ordered some appetizers for them a bunch of barn animals to the way they're chewing. Oh, yeah. It'd be great for Zito. What would you serve would you serve in a buffet? Let's say it's a buffet style. Where the boys each have a piece of meat or a piece of food. Yeah. And it's in your dish. You can spoon. It fork. It. However, you wanna do it. People are coming in a line probably paper plates. I'd assume paper plates double stack though because that's civilized forces you to use just one paper plate probably terrorists strong one. Yeah. You out there? They are out there. But still they get if you're doing anything with any juices, you got a chance to really really ruin your day pants, your hand, your your table. In my head. I'm going to taco bar, and I'm gonna be the walk. Moly talk. Oh, bore you yourself. We're going to talk. Oh, boy, you're only doing this. Other people are doing their stuff. What do you dip into? So you just decided that are buffets taco. I would love to talk. You can have your. No, no, no, we'll make Nick over. There was nickel have to be part of the ground beef. I was thinking like literally everyone likes to walk guy. You know what I'm saying? Like, they always like the person was more walk on their plate. So be like is it like whip cream? Walk. Stir-fry like walk. He's talking about guac. Yeah. You walk. You look this up. This is this is this one talking for sure he looked up. He heard guacamole but in his head. He was like, ooh, that's easily walkable locks it in and he's like, I'm busting that out. How do I get there? And he's like, oh taco stand. Yeah. That's how I get there. Taco bar restaurant. It's called whack-a-mole. Oh with a couple of Qatar's dancing on the side. Whack a mole machine hit the mall when he pops up. Yeah. You just walked down the station if you want it you hit them all with the hammer. If you don't you just pass it by. Yeah. I liked that we should dump that we'll have a huge rat underneath my deck Jain Norma's. What might as well be a beaver? Okay. So we learned the other. The mole thing, by the way. Beavers incredible engineers to get them to work on that deck if you want to build it up a little bit thirty maybe make it bigger. We talked to other day, this is domesticated Dick's domesticated digs is fully moved into a house with his lady she forced him to shovel his driveway, which is gravel. Seven inches of snow the other day. So he's okay. We got snow. We got ice. All right. There's our driveway. The gravel is now in the front yard. When you asked me to cut the grass in the span. This gonna come back and fucking get us something to think because you're really picking up rocks and throwing them into the. Luckily, they've been pounded down by so many years. What was the researchers cobblestone when she? Where the tire the tire marks are gravel and then in between his grass like one of those. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. So it is like a trail. It was basically like. Are you gonna show? So. She's like what you shovel when you get home. I shall probably listen to this. All right now. She doesn't listen. It'll probably smart. She's like shovel when you get home. And I'm like, yeah. I bought salt problem. So I get home, and I was expecting to shovel the sidewalk that would make sense, and I get home intercourse parked on the street until driveway and she's on the front porch. I'm like, you may shovel the driveway. Oh, no. She's like, yeah. What do you think of it? I was like the front porch only gonna walk through the snow or cores. Yeah. We're gonna do. It'd be very delicate with the shovel performance surgery for thirty feet to just like leave like half an inch there. So it's it's it's all trampled down snow, but we're not getting it on our on our pants. Dicator digs might be my favorite ten bags of salt for this weekend's twelve inches. I'm salt down every hour. I love the snow guy, by the way because of the situation the group text lights up less than I digs friendly heads up. This is. Wait a minute. Let you know potential foot of snow coming on Saturday. Fucking shovels. Also, big weather guy knew our love snowstorms, love weather. I do too. I I was thinking about that. This morning was getting in my in my truck. It was I was walking through snow a little bit. And I was like, I know you're probably like I get sick of it like everybody else does. But man, I enjoy the I I really enjoy. Lovely love seeing like just how much it is. And it's also the best excuse to literally do nothing all weekend. Like you. It's not there's nothing better than cancelling plants. That's knows canceled plans for you. So it's not even on you. By the way, top-five thing. Do cancel plans. It really is. My new thing is just saying, no medium. That's right instead of cancelling plans. I think that's the most mature thing that I've done it is more mature. But it I don't know if it's fun. Well, mine tire life. It can be I have had to cancel plans or show up later things like that strictly because AM either somewhere else be don't wanna go. Now. I've got to the point where I'm like. Mt. More than Nick by me. Probably. I don't mind I understand it. 'cause I learned early on to like if I don't want to do something. I'm not going to force myself. You'll do it for your benefit. I I'm just not going to go, and I'm gonna tell you know, right up front. There comes a time. That's nice. You have it took me a long time to get. I was always like. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. Yeah. And then it would get the time text than Duda person to their face. Yeah. Chances are knockabout making. 'cause I'm sure there something I'm not thinking, let me go through my emails or something. There's something going on in my head. I think we have something that weekend. But and then the CNN that became a pet peeve of mine. Because I think I'm the way I am where I'm just like I don't want to do. So. Yeah, I'm not gonna tell you. I am not it's tough for me to back out of anything though. And I think that's why start saying no because I couldn't cancel plans anymore. Got to the point where I couldn't cancel plans anymore because if I cancelled the plans probably gonna ruin somebody's fucking night. Well, I can't do that anymore. Oh, Pat, you still stopping by insert name of place here. Remember four Riley children's hospital. Kids are here waiting for you to say Hello. Get out his fucking back. Different things you invited to also a little bit of a different perspective years ago, though, that was years ago now now when people ask me, I'm like, I have no idea what I'm gonna be doing with my life on that day. If I can make text me the day of if I can make it I will if not amount. That's my new thing is because it's true. Literally hours before happened. I mean truck beautifully today. And then what two minutes before we go live. But that's a real thing. So that's my new one. And it's true. I think a lot of people think I'm just foolish. It's a new phone who is type thing. But real it's like, I have no idea what it'd be doing. Somebody asked me do some in September. I laughed. I fucking Senate laughing Boji back. Are you kidding me? What do you want me to commit to something in September? What is it? It's February even the Saudi even February middle of January. There's no way I have a single fucking Kulu. What's going on September schedule changes the week before? Like, that's literally like, you're like days. In the amount of things that are potentially being I'm drowning in opportunity over here. It's it's Mark Cuban's lines. It's a good line by Mark Cuban, but there's all these different potential paths for me to go on. I go to bed, and I have no fucking idea. What's going to happen in three weeks and somebody's hey, how about September twenty first Queen locked it down for four hours to do this. And I'm like, no, bro. What's going to happen next week? What do you mean? No fucking idea. What's going to happen going to the Super Bowl? You in the fucking coin toss we would travel, Pat, like sometimes text us at like ten piano before MBA came tomorrow. A. All the time. Sales sales's like it's literally fucking ten people telling you, maybe you might have this. You might have this. And then one fucking thing comes in. Yeah. Well, that's kind of what I mean that conversation we're having that one company that they they basically there were supposed to put our company our business on hold for them. Yeah. Everything everything on hold for this company. Which by the way was a completely different trajectory of our company. We had to do a lot of strategy. We're like, oh, this is a different plant and then outside and it's like, oh, well, I sent a laughing emoji to them. New. It's been my news thing is just like the fuck out literally booking. Did the demo gave her proposal? And then they just said no at the end, they said, yeah. They they'll be like an sales thing. Be like we're gonna pay for one twentieth of the product. We think you give that to us an antenna other things as well. Your responses are the best too because you'll read them out loud to all of us. Make sure we know to doesn't in their Faulk in. I just assume that all my answers at some point are gonna get screen shot and put on the internet, if they do I want people to be like you, dude. Fuck. That's all I wanna do what I want. That's what I want. Because I did that with. I was with an agency whenever I was in the NFL, and I. Fired them because it was I was so low on their totem pole of importance because upon her salaries nowhere near what everybody else everybody else's sound could be. So I sent them firing letter that I had done the NFL PA in them in. I made it this sitcom basically about us breaking up, basically like, it's not you. It's me. And then I explained our entire relationship in how they started to treat me and how I felt and then dropped a PS. I'll keep the goddamn dog. Senate to the NFL PA. And I just thought the lawyer at the NFL PA that was reading that. That was like this serious something. Fired rosen. That is how we fired drew Rosenhaus that goes. He probably reads all his letters on a plane and boring. Why just assume that it would get screened shot is someone like at some point everything I init- wrote about this whenever the fucking hockey players got in trouble in their over for talking shit public. I had the mindset that everything I say in do in type is gonna get screen shotted and sent to the public for years now. And obviously it might have come off as if I was what's that called? No, no, no, not arrogant. It's paranoid. As if paranoid a lot of people thought is potentially paranoid. Because people say things around the who like I don't even want to be associated with that. He's gonna come back pain, excuse me. If there's a situation that happened. If I thought there was going to be a potential book written about it. I would always say things inventhelp people like, hey, if this comes a book, I would like it to be known that I said go look for this. One of our favorites. Yeah. I thought you meant like if I do it this way it's going to come off there again. So I got a possibly go the other direction case, but he'll sees no paranoid. That everything was just everything that I because it got to the point here in Indy where everything I was doing people were taking pictures of being ping when somebody recorded me peeing, and then posted it, and this was whenever I had like maybe fifty four hundred dollars on Twitter that was an entire moment that change of meals like well here we go. We're not we're going to do this. And that just have with Derrick rose use the public bathroom. So we just film them say so fucking weird. It's so weird. Hey, you you me Peyton Manning? Well poop. We all the God damn same Connie. His his shit. Doesn't stink. Everybody else's does. She said Kim to come out and protect him because he was protecting our Kelly. It's about time. Kris jenner's Kim to get out of there if she's pregnant with a fourth kid too. It's like this one. Or is it a fucking surrogate? Again, I don't even know what that means. She their last kids. She didn't have it. She didn't carry surrogate. That's an interesting little thing. If you make money off of your body being in shape, pregnancies probably our number one enemy, right? But when you make money off of offspring. It's kind of a tough. That's a that's an interesting situation is because it's hurry firm. They just put it into fertilizer. Yep. That's why people making business carrying babies. Host. If I was if I was just as successful woman now for nine months dream job. I feel like you're going to catch. Giving. Airbnb for. Four hours need a nine month rental right there in your overeat. What do you pay that person? Obviously dollars. It's very odd dollars. If she paid hundreds whole year salary there because they can't drink. They're giving up everything they can't work. They gotta eat. Right. They got a they live their house probably know, they probably have their own place. I sure in in their mentioned, the state probably had their own wings one hundred thousand dollar job though. I assume something like that. I don't think you can see them more in that case of all the extra steps you have to go through in confidentiality and all that stuff. Probably few hundred thousand. And then is that just? Do they give birth away? Julius Caesar was a believe. So it is a belief. So okay. What does that mean when I said joy Caesar, FOX. Well, I have no idea. It's a Syrian like the. The. Wow. I'm surprised at how little surrogate got what do you mean? Forty five thousand. Just rolling into a trailer park. Damn fucking Baylor. Surrogate forty five thousand ten payments of forty five hundred and they paid the agency the founder ser surrogate. Jesus Christ seventy thousand agency just pimping out the stomachs that makes so much sense. Barely entry level money. I don't I don't I just forty thousand. What's like crazy? If you're doing absolutely nothing. That is a great salary to have to do. Absolutely nothing with your life except for eat. Right. And then. You're still have to birth. I mean, that's your life sucks for sure. I don't think it's worth. But I thought I would think a lot more because your baby like if that baby is a lot of money. Yes. Especially in the Kris Jenner run world. You would think that you would wanna park your car? That's potentially going to be worth millions in a in a garage. That was kept kept like one Instagram post for for yet. His. One incident -absolutely for the least popular person in that family. Yeah. It's probably one Instagram posts in one swipe late. Rob. Like getting a new decker dishing on the house, though, you take the lowest bid, you know, maybe people fighting article in. That's just the going rate for all surrogates, you don't get more money. If it's if it's a celebrity. These agencies are pimping tip after the babies out. Fuck after it probably got probably tip slot. She'll pry read a book too. I carry came in Connie as kid blue Ivy. Everybody talked about that potentially being a surrogate because beyond say like two weeks after pregnancy was beyond say again, I don't know. I don't know the truth behind that. But she took those pictures. Maternity pictures. A and I it was an old man in front of seventy. But let's say they did. But okay, let's go with somebody else. Yeah. But let's say that was surrogate that mom carried blue Ivy of blue Ivy goes onto become the next fucking Riano beyond say or anything like that that probably is a story worse deli. Oh, for sure how I created blue Ivy. Senator earnings who know me know you. Think about but that agencies get for for sure. Killing babies. It's a scary thing valves and bad spot. What happened she when I run in the snow? You know, we took a bunch of pictures out there. I got out there. And she was just so jacked up because she loves it. Every dog seems to love Snowville. Yeah. Just like a cold soft. I feel like she thought it was like foam almost running around recklessly. She was fucking reckless. I've never seen valve this, reckless Val. My dog half sharpei half pit bull came into the house with Samantha's the only pet. Valerie was the only pet is the first dog that ever loved me. And then I loved this dog. And I have a great relationship. Sam has since then brought in four cats as well. Val still the only dog we've tried out a couple of other dogs, and they're all we got a farm, but vow was running around reckless in. Then we get in such scarf on had a good time. We wrestled in snow little bit. She was. Sprinting around the whole house, though, I got some hills there. She was just losing her mind. We get inside she dries off. And then she just lays down and then she puts her ears back. What's like means? Like, she. Sorry. So whenever she does something wrong. She lays there and put your ear straight back. And it's like an sorry situation or something is wrong. Right. So it is a great time. I was trying to give her a treat. I think it was like a piece of bacon come cover and she's laser. I'm like, what did you do normally should go into the garbage and she'll pull like the Buffalo Wild Wings box out of the trash open the box and eat the chicken, and then just leave it next to the box. Like right this show. Get she'll go into the bag grabbed the box open it in eat, the chicken wa this is our thing. She's a dumpster dog. That's what she she literally is dumpster. We have to keep the trash if it has any food, and we have to keep it locked in behind like metal or she'll get in there. So I thought she did that I was like what did you? What did you get? So walk around the house like looking at get into Schick? What are you? And then I went to rubber and she gives a yelp. And I was like, oh, no like it was like a father whenever she was like house like, oh, my baby hurt here. So we go and lay go lay on the couch, SAM's, laying on the couch, and she still has her ears back. She just yelped him. Like, I don't know if I just touched. I don't know what happened there. And seems like what you do. I'm like, I don't know anything. I don't think and values like following me around. I go lay on the couch. Normally just jump up on the couch and take her spot, and she was just looking up on the couch like she couldn't jump now. It's like, I don't know what happened. So I lift her up on there. And she just passes out doesn't move for the rest of the night. Never happens. Normally if Sam gets up she'll follow Sam finding follow me. She didn't move. She takes her. She threw she blew her backers threw out shake through all the six seven. She's gonna live. I think twelve I've been doing research, and I hope by the way pissing lives for a long long time. But she the muscles in her back. So. It wasn't the bones. It was the muscles in her back somehow. And I think she might have hit a corner like of a hill in Rhode or something one way, we didn't see her doesn't even have to be that man. Yeah. Our great Dane did throw your back out. Yeah. But I was real worried about her, man. I was like so last we we've had to carry her like I've had to lift her up out of bed in India bed 'cause she can't jump into bed. The vet was like do not let her jump off the bed. So after like like three AM Leslie Sam had to pick her up and put her into her bed. And then she gets up and comes over to my side because I was still awake at that point. And she starts hitting her nose off the bed, and she's like, let's go give me the fuck backup there. No, no. You to go to bed you go back. Sam's. We keep the fuck down. Like, listen, our daughter here doesn't understand. She's fucking hurt. Sleeping on. It's been a while and stuff like that. Or she's on like he's muscle. Relax. Oh boy. All she might be jello. I always thought those were like give zoo Val. I could understand it. You would think that because the animals can't speak. Animals who Saint working, and I do think vets are quite a hustle. Yes. I would like that to be known now that I have five animals in my life, and we go to the same vet in. They're always giving these diagnoses that I am not only sold on. But, hey, if we can buy this other pill it will solve the problem. Of course, it will. No, they do they do. They take care of the animals very, well they held on that ship, but I going into it. I thought that's real hustlers. Because of what you just said the this medicine is definitely working 'cause you just become jello. And I guess it just resets her. They said it like today. I guess she should be reset and good to go last night. She was getting spunky though, she hadn't been like that since the back. But I thought about my kid. Laura she now, by the way with because now all the World War Two vets in Vietnam, vets are fading out that a different mentality on spending money on animals there like two thousand dollars. All right. Get some good by you know, what I mean that was that was talking. He's not wrong. No, no. He's saying no dog on animals to it's a real thing. I I know couple vets, and they're like, you know, this is where these generations. Now, you're more personally attached to yours. The weird put it with the World War Two. Very. Potential Jo coming out of your time, though, greatest generation and potentially veterinarians thought there was some way some right down. Term greatest generation wasn't in that context. It was out of to fight. The the veterinarians probably make more money than fucking doctors doctors these days, but the way insurance in the way things happen. I bet you veterinarians yourself animal turns I've paid a lot more to fuck it vet than I paid to adopt. A Greenwich got surgery from the colts, they paid for since retiring, I've dumped more money into that fucking vet than any doctor on earth. I think it's they're making a good little living out of fr from the McAfee zoo animal churns, really really ten bucks a month. Your insolent near Solta. I she gets it through work like through her medical plan. Actually, it's part of it's just like human insurance or you gotta you just pay shit. Really? So like in veve get some if they have to have fucking surgery instead of paying like eight grand. It's whatever the fuck. And then what do you gotta find vets that except your assume? So I'm not versed in it. It's not my insurance. But a list of ones that are in the plan. List? That is I think it's a driver away from my house like if you were to t- off in mind J's front yard in my front yard, Jay's front yard that is in my friend. If you get a driver and off from there, I think you could hit the vet that's from. They're very nice people. I need to know if they take any animal insurance. Oh, fuck it. Sick of it. Teddy will get like an ingrown thumbnail. And I gotta do we gotta worry about Garfield. With three fucking legs scoots. He's back hips. I know are going to be a problem. We're going gonna have to fucking pay for that. I've been trying to get her goddamn wheel. But you can't jump. She's a freak athlete. She's like that slingshot car. Yep. Yeah. Like, rob dare deck at one time and video and they try to give it to us for the month of February very nice. Yeah. AJ hawk on it all summer and spread and in fall. And then we got it in February very nice of them to do that. Thanks. Here's a free ad for you fuck up, but she's like a slingshot right now. But she's like seven months old. I think so she's still young and spry, but when she gets going, she's literally running like three legged, it's like sideways. The back end is sideways, and she's like one she's running the back leg is facing straight ahead somehow in our two fronts or like, they're like a she's running triangle offense while sprinting and she is fast fast fast. One of the fastest cat. Probably in the whole thing in her front arms. Just like the guy in family guy, who's in a wheelchair. Oh, very Larry strong. She climbs up. This cat poet this or front arms in just goes all the way to the top. And then she'll bat like the other ones off the fuck up. She's become like a little thug in there. But I know her hips are gonna be fucked. I mean, you can't run like that. It not be. We're gonna have to pay for an entire surgery for she's gonna have get new hips to holder thing to take the other leg. Then you get your wheels though. Just I see like. She's a good cat. I got good animals in there. But I don't know. It was fun the human baby. I just don't know. Todd. You did it. I tell you. I kinda rector first couple years because you're paranoid the whole time about how you worry about your animals little baby and everything you do is potentially life. All everything you do. But then she life everything in the world is dangerous to he. Think you look at dangerous. Yeah. That's not a picky. Vitamins, they are not. Every socket here. Bailey. Can't wait slice up. The he loved pickles. Man. He loved pickles Weems kid. He's probably a year and a half or whatever. And he was eating these little chunks little slices pickles. Man, he is in helpline without chewing it onto and there was no sound coming out. I mean, he's turning red to purple and I'm like what? Had you know, a new trooper I had his first day training lady, you know, across my forearm belly down his head sticking out. And I smacked he's back with a like a hill. Strike back poop and that pickled shot out at the on. Oh my God. It was the scariest moment ever. Did you hold that over his head forever? But save your life, bro. Saved your life. You might not made it past eighteen fucking month. Gator. That's awesome. Everything about it. Everything about it is scary to me thing about a lot because me in valor so tight and she's like a little human baby. I could talk to her of conversations without. What's going on with red? I'll be like you won't go outside and she shakes her head. Yes. I'm the let's go and she's like now, I'm like, yeah. Get the fuck up. So I. And she likes stand up. And then you're like take the blankets off of me like she'll take her nose. Take the blankets off of me and then walked to the front door. It's like she's walking me through this. Dog is walking me through this laser where she chases the laser all the best the best so much fun. I don't have to move. I don't have to fuck it move. And I'm just wearing around. But she knows where that laser is. And if I walked even in that area show, just like get at attention. And then she looks at me, and she looks at the ground. To ground. And then she looks at my hands like both of them like very like slyly looking at both ends initial look at the ground, and I have to go like hands up to her got nothing. I got fucking just I just took a Schick took a shit. When my baby walks up to me. I just took a shit fucking lazy. Change your own fucking diaper. They're so smart dogs. I was out in the garage with Carter couple of weeks ago for the cold and garage doors up and this lady comes walking around with the dog and Carter's the one dog German shepherd boxer mixie's, the oldest one of the bunch. I usually he's only one let out front because I usually can trust him. Not to take off and doll. Nec perk-up hair comes up he's kind of pointing and direction with his whole body. And just out of instinct, I'm like, I knock it off buddy. Go ahead and citrus down, and he just sat down, and I'm like that was a coolest. You really feel like you're an avatar. Like, you said I talked to like would a person you have a fool moment. And you could see them in. There is processing what you're saying. Cool we shouldn't gender sign who their nose. Yes. Human person. I like that you didn't. Now, I say it sounds bad. It should person's best friend. Yeah. That's it. Just don't say the word. Together, though. I think he does. I honestly think he prepares for this. Oh, yeah. I think a lot of work goes into it. I think I think it is hard being dumb public. It is like whenever digs was first getting into the microphone game was coming out of the sails world, and we would make fun of him for the false facts. I told him straight face. Hey, it is not easy being the village idiot. And it's not easy being village idiot is it is a lot harder than people would think in zero-sum you've mastered. It that gets your it's become your fulltime getaway. Today worries me is like after I would say some I would smirk after it. That'd be really proud of. It just keeps us blink face. What do you mean? Oh, I think he might be a billionaire somehow. Honestly, I think Zito might be a billion somehow undercover the whole time. That's what I was. I think you are like I think you're think you're potentially not exactly he buys everything he buys everything. It always ends up here. He always is like, oh, yeah. I know that you have done this like he's a well traveled. He says he works on a cruise line. Maybe parents owned a cruise line. I don't really know. Have we ever met anybody from Zito clan? Maybe he's. That's what I'm saying. All these damn free ads for dad. It is I on ously. I think Zito is one of the most intriguing to fix nickname. He gave himself pres-. We didn't do any background checks. Nicely. Joe Smith of. Todd was following a Jose Perez on the sports action Zito. In pretty good. I soon there's quite a few. I used to always like every time you like Jimmy go for your car to go say Perot's and like. Like, there's eight pages. Address and town, and they'd be like there's four pages. Now that could be a real problem, by the way for the no fly list. That's what was down every time. Not even talking about. Did you say? Okay. But it down that is not because of the no fly list. But that was happening. These no fly list were happening. We're getting put on the no fly list in like a guy named John Smith would end up on fly flightless, and then some John Smith in Montana would try to go fly. You can't buy tickets. Why John Smith you murder a guy in New York? The Jose Perez. Probably a pretty that's stopped. Obviously, I believe actually I have no idea it is better now. But you're right. I used to have to work for extra money, I would work weekends where it was called the Knicks office where if you buy a gun in the state of Indiana, they run the little background. They always make a phone call. And then you have to wait for approval. I was the guy that would set there and run your shit. See make sure to have protective orders or anything that's backing today. But you'd get a name like Jose erosion there. Twelve hundred alarms would go up. Yeah. Detain them. Immediately. You're gonna have to wait about two months. Get rectified could've been you. Or it's not you. Maybe it's not even your own name. We have no idea you're gonna win the weight loss Jones. So I'm pretty confident of that. I don't know because taught took the weekend off to kinda recharge himself, and he said he's going to get into destructive manner. That's the only way he can lose weight. And and he's been spitting over there pretty hefty amount. Which is the wrestlers trick to lose weight. Have not eaten today. And yesterday, I literally had probably about eight raw almonds eight individual almonds in two little pieces of beef jerky. And that was all eight yesterday. I love that. So in two days, that's what I've ate raw. Almost got. It you land on that number. I I'm guessing, but I just picked him out. And I like put enough in there had, you know, enough like, well, there's some substance in my mouth shut them up swallow them. Did that twice probably about eight or ten trail mix where you had to pick through all those who put in his mouth. I. But I've been pounding the coffee. I'm gonna ask you because you you you you've been through dieting before professional athletes. Wait is the coffee because I've read some where this is the caffeine is good because it keeps you from retaining water appetite suppressant makes you, but is that okay? To do for like a week straight down know, obviously nothing is for weight low just shedding way. Yeah. Okay. I used to me and. Was starting to kill people. What I was very very high, and I was also a little drunk. I also had hydroxycut. And then we went to go. See fuck. What's the movie with monsters? Space jam. It was it was first person view and they've made three cents. John goldblum. Good Goodman was in the last one underneath Cloverfield. I leave the theater 'cause I was having a hard. It was that shit was real hydroxycut made me lose shit real quick. But that was just caffeine in some other shit. That kills you in there. So I think caffeine is makes your heart go hunting. That was my first. That was my first anxiety. That was when we found out about the dig shot, I think so. Gonna digs bomb. He stopped taking a hydroxycut. And then that guy beat up three or friends. Today's show was brought to you by our friends at my bookie dot AG. Yes. It was a great conversation from top to bottom beginning to end. Thank you for saying that we saw you say, it, you thought it to be honest. If you've got this far into the show, you're really fucking committed person. And I appreciate you the most. So I'd like to give away something I do on a regular basis. Evan fox. We'll give you. A one hundred dollar gift card LS. I mean couldn't be more repetitive and boring than still a good gift. Wow.

Ladies and gentlemen, joining us now is a man who's been a head coach for the Buffalo Bills. He's been a head coach for the New York Jets. He's been a defensive coordinator all around the world. He's a legend. He's an ESPN personality. He's a guy that I enjoy immensely and Kelly to chat to ladies and gentlemen, Rex Ryan. Can I like to sit up here? You got a little heat going. Atlanta's this cold reason, Rex I'll tell you what we had no heat yesterday up here while we're setting us up for the first time code is ball's did not expect it in Atlanta. There's zero southern hospitality from other nature move forward. I have a question for you. What is your football philosophy? Every time. I hear you talk about football ESPN in all your interviews. It's like it's a game. That's physical. But a lot of fucking fun. I believe is what you try to pitch basically pretty much in. It's funny because I was reading the other day a guy that worked was a secondary. Coach for me. Just got the bears Stevens, Gordon job Chuck Pagano. And he said, it's my guy, you know, kill philosophy. Dude. You flat stole. That's exactly right in. But that that's kind of it because you know, that kiss philosophy that that was for somebody else. But to me, it's the, you know, but that that's really what it is in and get after it enjoy it, and yeah, it is it's a fiscal brand of football. You know, I grew up. My dad always said that a big hit with would change momentum of a game in anything and in his truth. Whether you're punters running down the field smashing, so. Know like, but it's it's the truth. Like, it's and I think that's the way the game still played. And I know look there's a lot of different rules. All that stuff. You can't, you know, take somebody's head off anymore, but you can still be fiscal. And and I think for the most part the most physical team went are you trying to get back into coaching. There's been a lot of rumors that you're getting back out top to Chuck last week. Right. I was very lucky to play for Chuck watch them, go through came as just an incredible human. I think he looks up to you a lot too. So it's he's a great guy. But talking to him he said he knew like a week out of coaching that he wanted to get back into it after he left the colts. It was like a week where him and Tina they're getting a little antsy. He was around the wife too much. She was getting sick of it. He said I need to get back with now. He's with the bears. Are you kind of feel that same way, whereas the helping you a little bit? No, it helps me a little bit. I have a son that's coaching with the chargers. So I get my fix that way. My brother just got back in with the Redskins. So that helps but there's no scoreboard and in one I do right now. And it's tough. When you've been competing all your life. And you know, thirty years I spent as a coach so yeah, you definitely miss the locker room. You miss, you know, the competition in you know, so that. Yeah. I I definitely miss it. And I was tempted to come back in. But for whatever reason nobody called me. Know what it is man. That was what's so funny? Like, I get a lot of them. I mean had one about college or, you know, some always he's interested. He's going, you know, he wants a job at Miami. I'm like what? Now, take the doll. I want to go to the hurricanes Luis and Ed Reed. Yeah. You know? So to me, I got a pretty good gig right here do well. By the way, I feel like whenever you're doing your press conferences as you kind of. I mean, you teabag the entire league when you came in you became the instantly. The most undertaking human in the NFL, you became a face almost the NFL for most must see these jerks fans. TV though, anytime you got in front of a microphone, so I imagine ESPN's very excited to have you have you felt comfortable in it. Have you had is there a learning curve to being a TV guy? Like there was a learning curve. Like when I first went in there. My gosh, I never want to do it. I wanted to coach you know, what I mean like hell I'll go do this. I was disaster on Monday night football. Oh, yeah. Who's gonna TV up here? Like, I don't want to you know, might end up. You know? You know, the the play by play or whatever like gymnasts a phenomenal job that way, he lets Tony Romo going on my God enroll Moses zillion times better than me. But it was like dad that have been. He's zillion. Maybe. A billion times. It was you know, and it was funny because I'm like, well, do I say some do it because I'm used to be in the lead guy. Like when when they come in. It's you know, a press conference, Mike sure there, and I'm the guy speaking. Yeah. So over there. It's like, okay. Sit bag setback. Okay. Sip Hanks, I miss it. Just made up Mike. I'm not great with the language. Anyway, let's face it. I wasn't exactly a five minute cap. And that was my mother. But so, you know, I it's just one of those deals and it did take a little time out. I'm much more comfortable now, you also movie star. I mean, we can't forget how it goes. Really? Yeah. That's my boy was that easier than TV what you're an actor. Actor. He's a pastry fanatic. Oh, yeah. I was I think I dominated that movie. You know? I mean, it was the another guy what Adam Sandler? Co-star? But I thought yeah. I thought I was the guy that carried that show is you and Dan, Patrick the whole movie. Really? Yeah. You know? But that was so funny. I get a call from Adam Sandler, and he's like a Rex's Adam Sandler like right wing. Looking at my number. All of a sudden it costs. No, it is a my guess. Would you be interested in let me think about it? Yeah. Hell, yeah. You know? So that was cool, but you take acting classes or you just wanted to real let's go to let's just go. And what what got me, though, is you know, they gave me the script in. So I studied my lines. I I wasn't going to be the guy that was going to screw the thing up. He can't be that. He can't be that guy. Oh, and and so I'm doing it. I'm just stiff robotic that. You could see that. I'm trying to remember the lines. But the funny thing is saying there's just letting it rip now, my whoa, you're supposed to say. That that's not. That's not the way this ghost. But it was you know, I it was it was fun as heck. And I'll look at that with heck writer, you just did it. I got to man. I I can't I can't you know. No. But I'm saying rain natural. Yes. Now, I can't I can't do what I used to do coaching. If you get back into coaching. You can go right back to them. All that stuff. But that's a rip when you're watching a game. You still call plays in your head or think about how you would stop certain things that are going on in a game. Oh, no question. Yeah. Yeah. It's just that that part of it never leaves you. And you know, some of these defenses that are played today. I'm like this is a joke. Like who the hell is calling. Name. The almost every team in a league by it's like, nobody's playing divas anymore Hitler, you know. But it's like, I watch you know, like New England the thing I respect and admire about ballot. Check is look every games different. It's its own. It's its own game. You're going to tack people certain way. His teams are multiple. They do different things in by the way brain still help you win you smart guys. And and you win with those guys. And if you're going to do always love this one, well, we're going to play fast. On defense words, you're not gonna coach you're going to get back, and I'm gonna put out my forty foot just and just yell on the field. I love college as watching a guy on coaching his butt off as your coach, your you're yelling and screaming. And and have no clue you're not getting your your guys in position where they can be successful. And it's just like, you know, we're gonna we're gonna play fast. We'll do that to the patriots play back. Sweatshop Asir offense goes through late. And these last two weeks, we're a great example because I really oh, you're gonna play deep. That's all I was just like stopped. And I and because I picked the picture teams the charge of my son coaches there. So I picked them and I take the chiefs. I Mike surely to guide they'll know how to play him and all that. And by you know, by halftime, I'm like this is a joke, send your son attacks at halftime. Like, hey, we need to make. He's fan. So it was. Yeah. It was predicted an all LA Super Bowl. So am I I'm doing pretty good? The charge come in the patriots. I we could say we want this the greatest coaching job and Bill bell checks career. Because that that team. I wonder if not even close to the team that I had to go whenever you became a head coach both times in AFC east. I mean, you're being thrown into a buzzsaw here. Probably the not probably the greatest dynasty in history. The NFL probably won't see this for a long long long time. You went in there though with like you went in there. I'm not dissing ring. Awesome shit. Right. What you have to tell your team you have to sell it. If you were to be do you think if you go back in time, you would have tried to get a head coaching job outside of the patriots? Maybe have because it's one of those things where they headed a it was a stranglehold right now, not on just AFC's. But the entire NFL. Do you think like I wanna be a head coach? Again, do you want to be a coordinator, what is the future or the media? You would take a head coaching job anywhere. So if you had to go coach in Alaska, and I did show up naked to coach. I do it. It wouldn't it be good for the league. I was doing. I went absolutely do it. But that's it. I love the game. I want to be I love being the head coach. But as deep it's a coordinator is great. But yet half the roster that you dealt with. But as a head coach man that it that's your football team out there. And and you know, when you talk about when I went to the jets, it was like, hey, I'm gonna show you I'm gonna show the whole league what they've been missing for all these years that they passed me over. And so that was like hell, I'm, you know, I'm here, and I'm not afraid yet. And I'm still not afraid, you know, I I walk in there with a high school team and still think I could kick. Somebody's a early in your jet. Skier was saying says they're put together some incredible runs like team football, though. Like, a six round trade. Yeah. Yeah. And we suspended for six weeks immediately, Alabama trade, but. Good move. We're like, oh shoot. Are knocks UB. We got this guy for six rounder. These best player on our field on believe go good so talented, and then we had Brolin Edwards at you know, that that ended up punching LeBron friend or something like that. So God him, you know, at at the right price. So I want to encourage other guys too. You know, beat up like legends, friends or something. But really it was, you know, but they're good dudes man and they played hard in. That was the thing. I remember one year we also had plex boroughs coming off. And so I had those three guys. So every Thursday, I meet with those three, and we go, and we have a little ice cream, social and all that. And we just we just shoot the officer. Oh, I learned so much. We learned a lot about each other. And all three of us will all four of us would would agree that we're all screwed up. But you know, I enjoy those guys man, they they would do anything for me, and in you know, vice versa. Well, I think we heard this in Detroit earlier this year is Patricia lost the locker room. And then you hear this lost the locker room that that normally means that the oh, jeez. Aren't fucking with the coach anymore. That's normally what it means locker room, the, oh, jeez. Are kind of done with the coach there's either coach. So Jesus that's kind of how the locker room gets lost. Your teams have never liked. Everybody was ready to go to war for Rex. Ryan. I mean that just like Chuck begun. Right. Chuck you'll never hear a player from the colts. I didn't like Chuck like, we're ready to go for Chuck. We wish you one more form. That's like probably the ultimate compliment. Right. Is a coach is your players want to run through a wall for you. That's it. And and you know, what it's in as, you know, it's because you establish a relationship, and and and you care, you your genuine about. Karen for those guys in and that was it and I cared for every one of my players. Look, there's sometimes I hated them. But I hate my son sometimes, so it's you know in they'll make mistakes. Nobody's perfect by any stretch. And certainly not me. But it was something that the these are these are special special guys that play this game. And and to me, it's, you know, look football's not for everybody. You know, all these sissies are putting their their kids in different sports. That's on them. You know, what their kids are going to be punks anyway to me. But that's what it's about. And m Mike it play. Of course, you're not you know, you we don't want your kid point. Anyway. Yeah. You know flag football. Look, it ain't for everybody. But the guys that do play the game. They're they're mighty mighty men. And and you know, I love all right. Wrapping this up. You one on ESPN where you work on a morning show. Okay. Rate after a situation happened in Chicago barefoot bogut, and you say basically in other words, fuck them to Cody park, and that caused quite a seen in the brand community here for I was asked by two years. Peter. A tough guy. I don't want. I don't wanna fight, you know. No. But I got this Mike. No. But I was getting tweet. I got like two thousand tweets like yo g Rex Ryan said about Cody park this morning. And I like watched it, and I was like man that guy's got literally no soul in there. I was like how can I feel bad for the kid? But he has a job to do is what you are basically implying. Absolutely. It's a forty airfield goal that. I mean NFL everybody works there. But off how about the corner that had to me man coverage all day long. How this guy that guy the coach put the game plan together? You put your team in a situation to to win those games. Look, we had a kicker, you know, full. Kiro will literally. Yeah. Thirty five right hash, but still. Done and it was great because dead silent in the stadium, and he nails it and you hear. Yes. Eman me. Yes. Manny. Time out we call a time out. It was God. That was by the grace. We're all missing. Thanks very much. Because now I'm gonna throw the ball to break. Horner situation, which we didn't have called it the time. But it was so funny because when you bring it up it's like when we got them like you should see what we're doing on the sideline hitting me, Terry. I think might play was like what the. And and so now, you're you're plays. John like guys, they think we're just going to run that run the ball here. Why I got braille in one on one over bit. Look at. I look at Sanchez. What do you think? He goes. Oh, yeah. I'm like give it to them. Let's go. I don't care. What the, you know, I write Z's frost. Throw the ball the Braley that was the the technical terms. We used and he makes a great cat. Sanchez puts it on them. And then the rest is history. But yeah, that was Jim call was a dang good coach. But I was like thank you, Jim. A time management guy on staff that that time I think he was the one that told Jim to give the time out. Thank you. What that guy's name out there because he's probably looking for work still at this point that fucking hairy. Harry. I bet because we had a lot of older guys on the team that we're gonna teach ready to win. Yes. Yep. Anytime here's a here's the thing. If Peyton Manning's your quarterback. Sure gonna win. I mean, this just in you're gonna win. And that's what's so funny. Where you look at all these teams, and let's guys are great coach this dude got Peyton Manning. Aaron rodgers. Hey, go out there and win with Gino. Smith is a rookie. And you tell me what's going on Rex. We gotta get you on the driving range here, so thankful for you. Coming your awesome on TV. Pleasure. You very thankful. You come in here. And I can't wait to see coach again because NFL need you up there, man. I honestly believe that you see what they're paying these dudes. Do you want to coach against? Yeah. I do Gruden just banked one hundred mil hundred mil ten year deal. You know? So you're Schimdt back. It's guaranteed. Like, you know, what we lost? We'll get them next time. I'll tell you. What man goodness? He said the Khalil Mack ninety mills a lot of money like a month after signing that hundred million dollars. It's like zero self-awareness from the incredibly wealthy fucking guy that just came out, by the way, this dude can rush the passer, you not so much. Oh my God. Rex thank you so much. You're the man on my pleasure. The fact that he saved himself by saying heck in darn there. I think he said incredible move by him. Well, and I just I'm so used to like hard knocks was what made him so popular and he got so popular because he said fuck like every other word. So I was very very impressed that he's been trained to basically eliminate that from his vocabulary his brain putting the brakes on that is incredible. Because there's an obstacle course happening in your head whenever you're known swear. And then you have to go on something, which by the way, w w we're about to just dive into that with my new boss, Michael. But before we get there, you Chow threats rainbow was awesome. He hung out for like two hours to didn't want to leave. He said. Yep. Good guy. I hope he gets back into coaching the game needs them or I hope he gets on TV more because the world needs more Rex Ryan.

It was a good one. Joining us now is a man who's my boss. A man who's covered colts in Texas. He's covered political campaigns. And now every single Monday night for the last twenty five years. He's the esteemed voice of the WWE, ladies and gentlemen, the handsome clever. Witty Michael Cole. Michael. Maybe the best introduction I've ever received. Well, see that's what I try to do. You know, I'm a I'm a put somebody over type of guy. I like everybody who look good, Mr. cool. I love it. So first off the fact that you even have me on his podcast is that. Oh, hey, what's going on? Right now. Hang around. I'll exciting alarm that. I set to call. You all be on his podcast today. See, but you were on time we were late here. We are Niamh so thankful you came on here. I've been asking you to come on my show, literally since we started working together, you said as soon as you sign a contract, I'll come on the show that happened here. You are. You're a man of your word. So listen, a I don't do this often a very rarely and beat if you go back over my years of doing WWE. WWE rarely do interviews. That's the first thing. The second thing is I told you I would do this for you. So I'm doing it for you and Thirdly and most importantly since you stole my thunder a few weeks back and told the world that you had signed with. With with with you understand what you told everyone would side with those which by the way, you had you had an any contract. My phone blew up. It was like a disaster. And it was like a Monday like for Monday night, raw or are. We were taping raw for Christmas or something in my phone went insane. So I had to call you up and see what are you doing? All right with the company yet. Well, I told you I had a throwaway line and one of my podcasts. I didn't even think it was that big of a deal. I was going into lambo to call color commentator game for the NFL for the first time. And I said also the WWE is officially offered me a multi-year deal to everything's like going up and up for me. And then that obviously was heard by some people, which I did not expect. And then literally everything I do is headline news. I didn't know we're at that point. And it started happening, and you I apologize for the battle. You had to go through over there with the PR squad. Well, nonetheless, as of February I Pat McAfee officially a contributor with WWE. Give me man. Look. That, you know, this is actually a it's been it was an incredible twenty eighteen I if you remember, Pat, I mean, you and I met on a telephone call and a few weeks later you were doing an annex t takeover. And for some reason, I still can't figure out today. But with some reason, you entrust people. Started doing a few more months of stuff for us. And the next thing, you know, you're now what a regular contributor to WWE and the two thousand nineteen is gonna be incredible. And I can't wait. I mean, I'm I'm really excited to have your part of of our team. And I cannot wait to see what what the future holds for for us. Well, I am so thankful for you. Whenever I was in the NFL leaving the NFL nobody would put me on their network. Nobody would put me on TV. So whenever I got a call from you one day was before wrestlemainia, I got a call. And I answered it was a random number. I answer it and I go Hello. You know? I have no clue what it is. Is this Pat? Yeah. Yeah. This is Michael Cohen. I was like Michael get the fuck outta here. Michael cocoa. It was a he was like, no no for real. How did that all happen? How would you big time? Follow him on Twitter. You seem like my demographic right in there. Perked up the fact that I I the Pat listed. I don't use social media. You know, I with somewhat every once in a while. I'll be honest with you. I knew Pat McAfee from the NFL I'm a big NFL fan. Huge New York Jets man had season tickets for years and years and years of my dad, so I follow football regularly and had always been intrigued by Pat McAfee, you know, some of the positive and negative things in your life over the. You know, it was always was always cool thing. But obviously, we never knew each other. And then you just happen to come to a live event for annex t and do a little bit of a thing with Adam Cole and people reported back to me. And they said, oh my God. This guy is entertaining. He's who he loves the business. My sat now with with triple h Paul Beck who obviously annex piece his brainchild. And he said, what do you think of Pat, we're looking to do something different with our with our kickoff shows, and I said damn with give them a try and we three on air not knowing what to expect. I thought we were going to get kicked off kicked up. Kick off TV. But it went great. And here we are today. And you know, the future's bright, and, you know, not just going to be kickoff shows anymore for you. You scuttle a lot of stuff coming down the pipe. I hope well, I'm very thankful and excited for that. I have been a WWE fan my entire life. Michael Cole is a constant with the WWE for the last two and a half decades was your plan. Always to be the voice of the WWE. We were doing some research on you, you covered the Waco cult thing in Texas for fifty one days with CBS, you're on a political campaign trail you want to Syracuse. How did you end up with the WWE like I'm very intricate? Now, you're you got me a job you've taken care of a lot of people. You're you're a good man with the WWE. There's it seems as if though you didn't know that that was going to be your life, and my correct with that no not at all. So he'll be WWW WWF back in the day has always been a part of my life. I mean as a young. Kid growing up. My grandmother used to watch. So I watched with her got away from it at high school went to college got back into it. Because when I was in college wrestlemainia was just beginning and me, and my buddies that goes, you know, watching and closed circuit in theaters in Syracuse, and one of the guys that was a couple years ahead of me and my class creek your ch- did some work with WWF. Sue us to go backstage and hang out with him a little bit sued always been part of my life. But it was never in a million years that everything I was going to be working here. My dream was aid to be a sports caster. Which is the reason I went to Syracuse be once I got out of school and got the news bug was always to be the next evening news guy that that that was that was my goal, and I was studying my career up in radio to get there. And what had happened was by the mid nineties. I had covered just about every major news story on the planet. I was fire men for CBS news. They sent me around the world to all. These major stories, but I was doing radio, and I realized if I was going to be successful in media make money which obviously is the goal. Having a family was I had to get some television experience. So I was working in New York at the time, and I was really good friends with Todd Pat guilt used to work with WWE's now at big time DJ in New York City and Todd basically said hey, confront audition went in for an audition figured what the hell let me get one or two years to television experience. So I can have that on my resume real. And then I'll go back into the news world. Well, twenty two years later, I'm still here. So. You told me you said once you get in with the WWE it's hard to leave because it's so incredible. Is that kind of how you covered the world with in your news life. But now, you're WWE, which is literally all around the world, the things in places you've seen in been our next level. Have you learned just like to appreciate and love everything that is the WWE or or is it kind of something you get thrown into deepen and just going to have to figure out. Well, listen, Pat, the best thing is is that the thing that I like about the w compared to working in news or whatnot is is. Even though I watch. Now is the fact that in w can actually schedule your life. You can actually look at a calendar and say, hey, over the next six months, I'm going to be in these different places. So I can actually plan time off with my family vacation, whatever the case may be now Nobis do that. Because if he's after happened say the Waco cult standoff, you go there one day and the next thing, you know, fifty one days later, you're still there. So it was hard to plan things in that part of my life doing a presidential campaign. Same thing out on the road for you know, eighteen straight months with a candidate. And so it was really difficult to actually have a life and now in WBF's able to do that. So with that being said WBZ most wonderful company I've ever worked for they have given me so many opportunities I've grown up in this company. All you gotta do is go back and look at the WB network and see how young I actually used to be. And that's the worst thing about the network by the ways, you can actually go back to the hey, I was actually in shape and young at one point in my life. No, it's it's one of these things where I just I fell in love with it. And in the company is really good to me and allowed me to be more than just a television announcer. It allowed me to expand my background. And I ran the website at one point in my career, and I worked on live event promotion at one point my career. And now, I'm in charge of all of our on air talent. And it's just they allow me to do a lot of different things in really have grown within the company, and you know, I I oh my career, and and a lot of whatever -ccomplish to to to WB to Vince McMahon and triple Asian Kevin done, and, you know, Stephanie McMahon, and and and all of them I've said this numerous times, I always wanted to be a part of the WWE. And then when you talk to people who maybe had a a quick run or something like that. They're like WWE is the grandest stage of the mother at wrestlemainia, but the biggest you could po- platform possible in this business shrewd business people though, shrewd business what they always said. So I expected whenever I got invited to. To do the NFC takeover pre show and go in there is soon. Everybody was going to be a bunch of assholes complete opposite me and foxy have got a chance to meet everybody. It's a family in there. It is really everybody's nice. They've been so hospitable. I think that is something not enough people know, a they don't know. The Michael Cole is a hero behind the scenes, but be the people of the WWE really is like a family in there. I and I assume that is a correct assumption by FOX. Well, it it. I mean, obviously it started out as a family business. I mean when I started in the company late nineties, it was a family business. It wasn't even publicly traded on Wall Street, and now now it's grown into this multibillion dollar global conglomerate, that's, you know, a publicly traded company, and but but it's still the thing. Vince McMahon is still hands on in every single thing that we do and his family Stephanie triple h Shane are very hands on everything that we do. So despite the fact that with this huge company, we're still small in. We're still a mom and pop company in many ways because the family is still running things, and they make you feel like a family here, which which is the beauty of it. Now. Listen, it it isn't always roses. I it no company is and this is a very very hard life. It's a very difficult life. We don't have an offseason we worked fifty two weeks year. We're doing a tremendous amount of programming. Things are going to get even more difficult. And we go to FOX starting. In this fall. But that's the challenges in that. And it's what you make of it. And how much you wanna put into this place? I think I told you Pat, and I've always told everybody that's ever come to work for this company. When you come to WWE in order to make this what you want it to be you have to give a hundred percent of yourself because that's what the company demands. And that's what the owners of the company man, and you have to give everything you have if you come into this place and try to half asset. It's not gonna work it won't work. You have to live this in breathed this. And if you're willing to do that the sky is the limit here, you can have an incredible career. You can take care of your family, and you can really do. Well, but you've got to put everything you have into it. So many superstars in this. I think this is during the raw twenty-five where triple h twenty five twenty fifth year anniversary triple h did a little mono shot video where he said Vincic man has been there comparing. Vincic man to other people. I think like Barnum and Bailey, and maybe even some other people, but Vincent man is literally created these characters into WWE creates these characters makes them superstars than they. Go onto doing credible things viewed as like superheroes. Almost the rock is one of these people. He's on top of the world right now highest grossing actor on earth was just Dwayne Johnson at one point with seven bucks in his pocket before he comes into the WWE becomes the biggest star on earth. The list goes on and on don't go Steve Austin, all of these guys and girls make a living post, the WWE is it fun being a part of the creation process of these characters. And seeing how the whole thing does is is that a part of the job that you love, or is it something that's just a part of the the whole the whole business. You get I love it into the growth to be of these characters in these individuals to me is is absolutely incredible. Because what to the creative team does is they give them a template. And then they say, listen, go out and paint your. Your masterpiece and the most successful people in the history of the of the business are themselves turned up a notch. Don't go. Steve Boston Steve Austin with the volume turned sky, high the same thing with the rock. I mean, I always tell people when I had my mini he'll run back with the wrestlemainia matching number of years ago. That was Michael Cole turned up a notch that sarcastic little prick who you know, me now that he knows what you guys know who I am that really is me in real life. That's the type of person. I am now am I as mean spirited, and so on and so forth Zach that guy was no. But you take your character. You turn it up in the nuts, and the people that are able to do that that are able to feel that character are the ones who are going to be successful in this company to be here and see a guy like John sina come in. As this young raw talent in turn himself into the greatest in my opinion of all time in to be there for that entire ride in to be friends with John and see that happen and see how that that that that process worked. It was apps. Absolutely incredible to be here when the rock for started see that metamorphosis into superstar absolutely incredible to see guys like Shawn Michaels who were here before, you know, before obviously I got here. But then had issues left came back into see them when they come back and become this whole new person is absolutely incredible to me. And that's the stuff. Those are the human interest stories that that I love about this business to see the creation of those characters and the creation of those human beings and the growth and maturity of them to see where they come from. Then to today, I think it's a beautiful thing. That's not talked about enough Johnson. Only makes bangers by the way, Ferdinand made me cry. That's. Oh, it's just starting to heat up. Conversation's getting good. We're starting to learn so many things we never thought we'd learned before ain't that right time. And it's been great. So far ready for the back say, wait. Did you see how we close? This thing out. It gets and the room wants to the room wants to know is played. It's good. We dive deeper.

You not you. I guess Renee did it with her incredible hard, work, passion and talent. But putting a female on the commentating table for Monday night. Raw was the first here recently in you Renee in Corey or a hell of a team there on Monday night, raw talk about that whole process and how easy it was. Because of how talented Rene is. We'll. Well, one of the things I've been very proud in my career in one of the things there. There are two things people can say what they want about me. And there there are there are a lot of Michael Cole detractors out there. There are a lot of Michael Cole haters, and listen be vocal be who you are. Don't care. I've been here for twenty two years for a reason because I believe I'm good at what I do. You are the things that that I've always taken pride in what I do in. This company is number one, my work ethic. Nobody can take my work ethic away from me. I try to be the hardest working guy in the company that is what I strive for. That's when I leave when I retire. I want people this the one thing I want them to say about me is man that guy could work number one. Number two. I've always taken pride in my career of having the ability to work with any single person that was put out there with me and to be able to help them grow as broadcaster. Whether it be TASR who, you know was a nec- W guy before he came here. And you know, turn, you know, I I helped work with him. And and help make a pretty damn good team on smackdown. You know, fifteen twenty years ago and now he's doing morning, you know, morning sports radio in New York. You know, he's he's doing awesome in his career. And I I you know, I I'm so happy for him. So glad he got to that point. But I was able to work with him JBL never broadcaster before came into the booth, and I believe came onto the best broadcasters ever when he had his run a decade ago. You know being able to Jonathan Coachman who I brought to WB initially his first time around found him prevent so these are guys that I I love because I was able to work with them Corey graves, nother example hundred and I thought that Corey had something when he couldn't be arrested or anymore. Threw him in the booth Corey worked his azoff for two years to get to the point where he where he is today. Rene man most talented person I've. I've I've ever worked with. She has. She has a unique ability to be likeable people like Rene they relate to Rene. She's believable. And she's got a great sense of humor. And she she's she's at cross between a comedian slash real sports journalists slash wrestling announcer, tremendous work ethic, and it was just time. It was time to throw her out there give her the opportunity. And now the fact that Renee in Quarrier, really close friends, I get along with both of them. It has this this unique chemistry. That's never been done before. I mean think about it. This is never been done before forget about sports entertainment. But there's never been a regular team of two guys in a girl on anything like this ever. So it's a pretty it's a pretty cool deal. And it's pretty unique to be part of that. Well, I think you give so many people opera -tunities Iran through that list of people you made their lives better. You obviously want to leave the Pat Pat one thing I do want to say is I don't. Look at it that way, I don't believe I made anybody's life better. What I did was like aids chance in these guys all of them from TASR to JBL to Renate Corey to there's countless others all he was giving them an opportunity say, hey, can you do you think you can do this all of these people though when out there and worth their reruns off to learn how to be a commentator, which, you know, Pat because you're learning is not an easy thing to do. And they had I can't, you know. I don't have a magic wand, and I can say you're a great commentator. It doesn't happen that way. I can say, hey, here's your platform, go out there and learn how to do it. I can try to coach them, but they have to make this in all of those people that have been so successful here is because of their work ethic. And some that I did I just wanna be clear about that. You definitely help them. Crazy. Speaking of coaching whenever I got asked to do. Call a football game. I knew nobody in the field. I knew nobody in the field except for Michael Cole. So I sent him a text the night before because I was given zero direction by FOX I was giving zero direction by agents by which is basically told them calling a game. So I sent a text the Michael Cullen it for a man you busy right now. And he's like, no, I was like, well, I don't want to bother you or whatever. I was actually. No, no, no. You you. You said it wrong. You said a text and asked me if I was busy, and what what the answer I how I actually responded was it simply said what? After night city. None of that that I just did what? And then I said, I didn't want to bother you. I and then I told you I said I'm getting thrown into a booth Tamar for football game. What do they want from me? And you sent me back this to scroll or basically that just I had so much confidence going in there. I will never be able to. Thank you enough for that. And also the opportunities that you're giving me with WWE because it was you're the I now say this. I think you're the greatest play by play guy on earth. And I don't think you get any credit for it. You you have to deal with a lot. I mean, it's a it's a circus happening. There's drama there's comedy there's action there's storylines that are interesting and hard to believe, and you are just a smooth rhythmic. You have a motion. It's just you are the top guy. So when he sent me this message. I was like, oh, I'm gonna go. Fuck is crushing there. I was very thankful for it. We'll anything isn't. And and I I remember the advice. I gave you and it's the reason that we hired you be yourself. That's it. We hired you. Because of who you are. I don't you know, I don't I didn't think that you should have gone into the booth and tried to be John Madden or tried to be, you know, Troy Aikman or Tony Romo. You had to be Pat McAfee you had to bring that sense of humor. Listen your football player. You know the game. You were you know, one of the greatest punters in history, you know, the game. But what makes you stand out? What makes you unique in? It's you it's who you are. It's how how entertaining you are. So that's why they want you in the booth not because they want to try you to try to be some football announcer. You're going to be your your your your most unique guy. And that's why we heard you. And I told you from day one. And I know that triple h is said the same thing to you. We don't want. Pat McAfee to try to be a wrestling announcer. That's not why we hired you. That's that's why you're not exclusive dust. That's why Pat McAfee is going to be doing a lot of other things in the world here in the next number of months, including working with WWE because we want Pat McAfee, that's the way you want. I don't want you to try to be grilling on soon or Jim Ross or Jerry, the king Lawler Corey graves or anybody else. I appreciate you so much. I was gonna at my final question before the room has some questions for a lot of big fans of yours in here, especially with what you've done with me and foxy. But also wrestling fans triple h seeing him hands on with every decision as a guy who was such a big fan of his growing up has been awesome to see. And now you've gotten a chance to really experience it from him being performer entertainer now he's full business mogul. I mean, he's a business guy not only within exte-. But also with what he's doing with WWE. How how is in you as well being in a business decisions? How is that transition been for triple h do you think it's because he's excelling it seems as a business person Z going to be an even better like business person than he was wrestler. What do you think? Yeah. I don't think there's any doubt. Listen, these all amory's one of the all time greats, but he has this incredible mind. But what we do is just an and I it's just he knows. I mean, you know, obviously, he's learned a ton probably everything he's ever learned came from vents in huntersville able to take that experience that he's learned from working with Vince. And now he has put his own spin on it. And he's taken brands like annex t and made them different different than we've ever experienced at at the WWE level. And that's awesome. You know in he he's incredible. He's incredible. Gotta work for and I've learned so much. The business from him. You know, it's one thing to be a commentator. It's another thing to actually understand how the business works, and you know, like guys like like hunter in once. I actually explained to be show me over the years. How this business actually does operate? Good handshake buttress glitch, by the way. Good handshake every time. I'd do it. I'd get a like I've never intimidated by anybody in my life. Everybody shits the same. But I I'm a metropolitan Vince was a wild moment. It was at wrestlemainia. It was like ten minutes into the thing. I soon everybody was gonna just hate me. And then I talked to triple h and he was like the nicest guy ever, and then Vince walks over in a incredible suit and goes eight how's it going and walks away? I was like holy shit still. Yeah. Yes. I heard what I had to go to explain to him. Why I was given a contract to a guy named tap macaroni. Did you have you told the story of the day that hundred calls you, and you thought somebody else's calling you I said, hey, you're gonna be getting a phone call so standby. Yes. And I don't think I've ever told it I thought triple h is agent was going to call me because couple agents wanted to sign me. So Michael Cole sends me Texas like, hey hunter and his agent or something hunters age at something in that message from Michael Cole is going to call you. So I'm at brunch with my lady, and I get a phone call from a number. I don't know. So I think it's hunters agent calling me like trying to talk to me. You know, I answered I go hill. That was like one of those. And I hear Pat, and I'm like, yeah. He goes. How's it going, man? I'm like, wait a fucking. This is. Sam I had to put it on mute. I was like I this is triple h I've got to get up. I left the restaurant one into the parking lot. And like a ten minute conversation. I was like, yeah. I'll sign with them for sure if you think I should. It was a wild moment though. I text Michael calls like yo triple h is fucking called me. And he was like, yes. So I was like what do you mean? This is a huge moment in my life. This guy. Just calling me speakerphone with him. It's been really cool, man. Really, really cool. I'm very thankful you're the nicest guy, I've you've I've ever encountered. I think the opportunities you before to me. And so many others is great. Now, here's an optician. Pat, just do not screw up. I mean that's going to happen. Stood up quite well with it. Did you tell the story of when we had our we had our big conversation a couple of weeks ago, the Royal rebel with a with me and Brian Palo Gatto from our digital team and Jeremy barashi works down at our annex t program, and we were meeting with Pat FOX, he was there, and we were talking about what we hope to get from you, and what we're looking forward to and this and that scheduling and everything else, and I looked at you. And you had this look in your eyes like what is going on here. And I looked at boxy to said FOX need your phone. Number Email information. It's a it's a still trap up here though. I think you've learned that if it goes if it goes in these ears it's locked in. It's locked in. All right. So there's a couple of guys in the room. That wanna ask you a question. Let's go to a beautiful segment called the room once. Thank you. Todd Makoto was twenty one years state police detective with like this you a question spear entire broadcasting come thank career, traveling the globe with reporting on and hanging with some just incredible historic personalities. I'm sure you got a huge vault. Legendary road stories you mind, sharing one of your favorites with us here. We go. God almighty, I mean, there's so many, and there's so many that I can't talk about them on of course, on a podcast either. Well, you know, here's an interesting one. This is sort of an overall wrote story how we used to back when the company was was, you know, Vince is gonna hear this and maybe pay him back all his money. But that's when the company was private before. It was probably where these scrutinized everything when it was private you could pretty much do ever you wanted. And whenever we did international tours avoid go out to bars and drink all night. We I I would I would pick up the tab every night for an entire tour. Ten fourteen days thousands and thousands of dollars. And I would go back and turn the expenses. Tony, Tim O one of our, you know, you know, Tony one of our famous ring announcer. Don't let him know I use the word famous, but Tony started to coin it the Coltrane's whenever we went international everytime. We. We had to go on the coal train. That was sort of how that how that came about. That's incredible. Just thinking of you returning. You walking into the WWF office at the time after having like five Japanese receipts for seven thousand dollars worth of drink that I couldn't even fathom that moment. It's beautiful Zito's been trying to buy a coffin on the Pat McAfee Inc tab for like the last two months. I couldn't even fathom have thousands of dollars of drinks trying to get. The next guy's from Pittsburgh grew up friends with Elias like in a licensed tight friendship group in Plum borough. He's an Italian ticket easy on him. Nick. What do you got Michael you have done it all in the WWE year the face of the WWE you've been the face and voice of the video game series? You've been in the video game series as a playable character, albeit one of the worst ones in. No mercy. Question is you're the ultimate company guy. You've done so much. Is there anything they've asked you to do either storyline or wise or not that you said, no to no never I say that without hesitation. I've never said no to to Mr. man, it is company, and I'll tell you why. It's simple the things that Mr McMahon has done for his company the things that he's put himself through which stone cold Steve Austin and get his head shoved up the big shows backside and all the things that he has done if the owner of this company, who's a billionaire, and is r-, you know, I is creating sports entertainment, and what he's made it today if he can do that during no reason Michael Cole camp. So I've done everything they asked me including pretty much getting. I don't know for my say that work but pretty much being heightened right? Let's put it that way back. What does he do? What did he say? Google Google Michael Cohen Heidenreich, Pat. You'll get a nice kick out of very similar to the scene. Dumb and dumber. When Lloyd gets trapped in the stall when sea bass comes walking in and yes, take the shower afterward or the old school the old school of us. It was very deliverance like. Wow. Okay. To look that up on. So do with what you said about Vince willing to do anything. He still getting slapped in the face in headbutted at as age. Now, Shane McMahon jumps off of everything. Do they do that? So that they wanna show like, hey, we're in this too. Is that kind of obviously got to be the mindset by the McCain family is everything. Death. I mean, he's just crazy. He's in Silicon Valley. There's no other way to describe that because chains out there, but it listened to it. You just look what Stephanie did on raw this past Monday night with Becky Lynch. Look what triple h with Becky Lynn Chen smackdown. Live just last night. I mean, they're still doing it today. I mean, it's being able to put yourself in the position triple h one went and had a match with the undertaker, Shawn Michaels and Kane and tourist peck, and he's still doing it. I'm so it's it's a love for the business. It's a low for the company. It's a look what we do. And there's nothing better. You we can complain as much as we want. But there is nothing better than to go out there when that red light goes on Monday night to perform and to make people smile, I mean highlight Mike are when I had a Huron for a couple of years, and you know, really became the first time and the just prevents 'cause says idea the first time in history of of wrestling that the lead guy the play by play guy the person who's so supposed to be credible. The audience is is you know, was a bad guy was a heel the first time it's ever happened to the point where we actually had a match at wrestlemainia. Now, it was the worst match ever resume. Wrestlemainia? So think about that. And so it's because of being able to go out there in love for this. And I'd probably be still the hill today. Jerry Lawler didn't have a heart attack. But nonetheless be. Up in live on air. That was a real moment that happened there dick, dick it bad guy. Cole is supposed to be in bad guy. But whenever one of your closest friends almost dies. It's hard to be a bad guy. There's an interesting. That'd be crazy next guy. Geoffrey Gorman was in the media world for a long long time handsome old man. Mr cole. I know you've had a great journalistic career, and I'm going to mention three things, and I want to know where you were closest to injury or even death. David Koresh, the Waco incident, fifty one days covering the civil war in Yugoslavia or the WWE. That's a great question. I feel like I'm you know, near that in WWE. No, listen. The funniest thing was so there's not really funny. I mean, obviously being stranded in Bosnia for nine months on one of the tours. We did. There was pretty was pretty frightening and wasn't sure whether we were getting out of there or not. But probably this is this funny story when I was working at a local radio station in Houston, Texas, KTAR ache. A there was a really bad flood and one of the rivers was was massive flooding and oil caught on fire causes huge Furner on the river. And I some guy twenty five bucks to take me out in his little bow to get into the river to do reports for the radio station and. Larry river engine died. We do. We ended up going toward the flames. You're like fifty five feet away doing life stuff on on the radio. My wife was listening thought I've I've had bought it that day that would probably was the closest I've come to really feel like I'm not getting out of the situation. Mike smart guy. I mean, all these things you got into a river of fire. Like, what are you even river of the big about it? You put it like that. But. Day road story than covering somebody's Barca. That. This guy is a gem of a human. He lost forty some pounds in thirty two days. He's trying to gain them all back right now. He's from Chicago. He goes by the name of Zito, sir. Mr. Cole is there any history behind you shorten your name to go medical or it was like a story behind that. Oh, why did you pick? So my real name is Shawn covert middle name, Michael. So what I did was when I when I first started the company, I was told that there's only one Sean remember show, Michael. I'm like, that's fine. Go I put my middle name, Michael cut my last name in half and made it Michael Cole. There you go. Incredible. Name my supposed to call everybody by their names, by the way. 'cause like Tom pests doc lived in my house for a month. Now, he's baron Corbin and I- strictly call him buried like I don't know if that's that. You learn is that, you know, they're no they're no by the talent night. And there's a reason for that. Because we are calling them by their real name. All the time you go on the air in the middle of match. And I've done it before. By the real name. So you wanna whatever you around you, you you you wanted to call them by the talent name best stock. Next question is coming from a patriots fan. He's celebrating six rings your heavily hasn't taken. It's on Brady jersey off for two weeks. His name's loud ask corner. Hey, mike. How's it going? We talked about the rock and John CENA, Petit, stas and other guy that jumps to the front for me. Is there a guy in the WWE now that you see on the big screen soon or what? Oh. An interesting question because everybody's always asking, you know, who owns the next guy who's the next. Big movie star was Roman reigns is doing he'll just finished doing a movie with rock his cousin fast interiors. Spinoff. So it'll be interesting to see how Roman doesn't that? You know, again, real Romans a guy who I think could be could be that person. He's got those matinee idol looks. Really? Well, spoken intelligent. So, you know, maybe he's the next guy. Roman reigns. Okay. I have a question for your wrestling question. Your thoughts so Roman reigns. John CENA, basically everybody Ronda Rousey, everybody that is super baby face ends up being hated while. They're still baby face like is that do you guys expect that do you notice that you see that what happens there or is the show going to go all the show is going to go. Listen, patty. It's it's it's a different world today than it wasn't as business twenty twenty five years ago, you know, social media, the internet changed everything, you know, back in the late nineties during the attitude era, if you wanted spoilers if you wanted to see how fans were reacting to different superstars different town. That was coming up. It was two ways to get it. You either subscribe to a dirt sheet. We actually got a sheet of paper in read it or you watch television once a week. That's how it so you were influenced by what you saw on television. So the company, you know, twenty five years ago, it was a lot easier to influence your audience. Hey, this is a good guy cheer for this person. This is a bad guy cheer for this person, the internet and social media has changed all that. Because there there's instant feedback on every single person every story review a ratio. Do there's instant feedback from from our fan and. Also, there's instant reaction to what's happening so fist as if somebody comes out during the break, and they get booed. Automatically. If you could see not watching on television people around the world can understand gone is open rates getting booed. They're saying he's getting booed during the commercial break instant information. That is available. I think that's that. That's the biggest thing. Social media's changed the game completely in our in in our in our business, number two. I think as well is that there is a perception, right, wrong, or indifferent. That a lot of our stars are handpicked to be stars. So when Rhonda Rousey comes to me, she is a star because she was a star outside of her business. The WBZ going to position her as a star. So people are either going to say great or they're going to boomer believing that she hasn't earned the opportunity look at somebody like Becky who spent fifteen or twenty years of her life getting to this point where Rhonda's only been here year. So it's natural that the fans are going to to to feel. Becky Roman reigns. People believe that Roman was being shoved down their throat for years and years and years by the WWE machine. Hence, the reason they wanted to fight back. Now, that's that that's important. Because the I I hate to use the word, Mark. They're not marks defense. But the guy heart fans, the people who follow our industry, not only WWE, but everything else that's in it, those guide hard fans that maybe fifteen twenty percent of our audience air, the most vocal your people on social media because they care and that sometimes influences so many people because all you see on social media are people blasting use Roman for example blasting Roman reigns. I hate Roman reigns. Bul Roman reigns. They are very vocal minority. But a very important minority that I believe the company is finally starting to listen to in a. In a good way. So I think there's social media has really influenced the way that are bad guys slash good. Guys are looked at today. Well, I think the vocal minority to they're the ones that are buying the merge. Buying the tickets. They're the ones that are not all the tickets, not all the merch, but they all are very active. I think it's an interesting time in the WWE right now. It's cool watching you guys navigate the waters because that's what WWE has been able to do for so many years is just dominate the just. Really good point there about it's an interesting time because what's going on right now is you you really you're you're serving you're almost green in many ways to types of audiences. You're serving your your diehard hardcore wrestling audience, and you know, Tripoli realized years ago that these people many of them seem to be turned off by the the core of our product the didn't want to have as much entertainment. They wanted more in ring wrestling. So what does he do? He goes out and forms annex state, which obviously is has this. Unbelievable underground flavor to it. All you have to do is look at halftime, he near guys nearly three million. People watched halftime, let's go. We were one of them. We had it on here. Incredible. So we're able to grab that niche audience with annex t but you still have your snow. Mac down and Ross which still has the not only the hardcore audience, but also has the vertu casual fan who will come and go he'll turn on watering wrestlemainia season may not go back to until you know, the summer when there's nothing else on TV and then goes away during football season and comes back in January for the wrestlemainia run. Those casual fans you have keep those fans happy as well. Which is why the mainstream stars of John sina Ronda Rousey Roman reigns. People like that work rock comes back undertaker makes an appearance because of that casual audience. So it's a really tricky thing within our company to be able to please everyone and try not to alienate the hard core fan who is with us three hundred sixty four days a year. So big up. It's a big hug from the the national the average fan and then the diehard fan, everybody's we're just trying to make one big hug and put out one of the show. I love. By the way. I I obviously have only. Have pain you to work there? I know. But hey, it is the greatest sports entertainment on earth, though, the athleticism what Ricky and Johnny Tomasz. Oh, and the whole undisputed air what those guys and girls that grows in next to your incredible to what they can do in the ring and around is next level. It's like Cirque du Soleil, but it's a four on Russell. It's incredible is absolutely incredible. Next. Question comes from foxy foxy as a question for you, Mr Kohl for those that don't know you are basically in pats ear, directing the annex t pre shows, correct? Yeah. Well, yeah. It was basically what I do is part of my job is precise being announced on Monday night. Raw also senior director of on air now talent, which which is a number of rolls number one. It's to go out there and identify and find announcers that wanna work for a company, and that can fit into the culture of our company. I actually I Sam Roberts right next three shows the other thing, I did was I worked with talent at the next level. And also at the at the at the other level. I don't be smackdown. So one of the things I do is behind the scenes, I'll help produce. The announcers help them get ready for the show from an annex t standpoint, I'll work on the pre show, and basically I'll sit down with talent during the afternoon, and I'll get their thoughts in their ideas. And how they want to handle certain segments certain interviews, and you know, Pat may have six say most Pat stuff that live which is hard because I'd never know what the hell he's going to say. But you know, we may I may I may have specific direction. Hey, Pat, I need you to take this. Erection on this particular character. And then they go out and do their thing. And so, you know, that's I just try to I just try to steer them. Okay. The right direction. I never wanna tell them. What to say how to say it how to do it because we've hired them for the uniqueness. I just wanna stirred steer them the direction of what do we have to cover to be able to sell this masher to sell the show? Okay. Two questions. Then was there ever a moment? With Pat where you were like oh shit. Like, this is not going to work in my follow up. Question is what was the exact moment where you're like? Okay. Pats in idiot, but this guy's gonna fit into the family for sure FOX that's in his room. Not my words. So Michael would say. So the first part of that question. I never know when pats gonna go off the rails. Because Pat is smart in the fact that he never gives me everything in reverse. So Pat will say, yeah. To do this or. Yeah, I'm gonna do that. We'll do a certain thing a certain way in rehearsal. And then when it's live it's completely different than we were Hearst. So I wanna I wanna natural ipod him. Well, it's like when you jumped up on the desk of the other day with your it's show your shorts off. For some. But. Your second question. I knew the first five minutes that pack was on our either of your first takeover pre show was mania, right, Pat. Yes, sir. Okay. That the first time I knew that was it was within five minutes that I show it because it was different. He was doing things reading grap. It's talking about stories describing characters in a completely different way that I ever hoping for. And then I realized why is because he wasn't in isn't a WWE guy. Oh, he wasn't using the WWE terminology. And he wasn't using. You know, he was he was describing the characters in the superstars and the stories in a way that is unique to him in a way that I'm sure you guys sit around and discuss when you're watching the show, and that's what that's what I love. And that's what we don't want to change it out paddock soon. As Pat becomes a WW guy. We use. We lose all that uniqueness. Hey, I that means a lot because whenever the you started the show we we sold the matches. Right. So the way it goes is like you get the matches. Okay. We're going to have this match. So this match sell this match. So in this is my first time doing any WWE thing. So I I know that these things happen. But I didn't know how they come about. Right. Because there's always something happened. How the sausage is made behind it. So I think they were I think you guys I don't know if you were worried or no maybe not worried to set the beginning though, apprehensive. So I only got to sell one match. Right. So Sam sold like too. I think. Charlie sold wine. And then there was one match left that I got to sell it. And I want ham like it was an intro. I I was like here we go. And I absolutely that's like one of my favorite things to do is to sell the matches just to see 'cause I hype up fourth downs. I mean, fourth downs are things that nobody likes him. Now, all I do is make videos hyping it up like I enjoy the hyping of things I enjoyed a lot producer who went viral this last week for saying the word Jesus in front of Tim tebow with Tim tvos responsible. It was a bachelor I lost by shit. I don't know if you saw Isley tie Schmidt, Michael you've obviously called a ridiculous amount of incredible matches over the course of your career are there one or two that stick out as being the most special or memorable to you yet. There's actually three. And and the reason I say that is because I I am asked this question a lot I had to think about it over the years because I mean, we're calling what eight matches tonight fifty two weeks year, plus pay per views. I mean over twenty two years that's probably five thousand matches right? There's three the standout number one. Was the Mick Foley tidal win only because because it was it was it was history. Here's the night. Shivani went out and said don't turn her all because mccully winds their title. Everything is definitely a post. I was new. I was green. Jim Ross was sick. He he had about a Bell's palsy couldn't be there. I had to take over for a couple of months. I had no idea what I was doing no clue even had a how to tell a story or call a wrestling match. And you know, I I went out there. And I just I did what I did on emotion. And it's like playing golf like if you've never played golf before you go out and play golf and hit the ball. Pretty good you go God. This is easy. You do it for a couple of weeks? Then he start thinking about it. And let's start thinking about it, you suck. So this is still the infancy stage of my career where I wasn't thinking about things I was just going out there and doing it. So that was the number one number two one was the undertaker Brockett wrestlemainia when Brock into the streak because I know most of the outcomes, I didn't know how come that night. And when if you go back and listen to the call when Brockton with the Heff five, I assumed. Because I had no idea the streak was ending. I assumed that it was going to be a kick out. And I called it like I almost new in one of the things in in our businesses every finished could be end of the MAC. Well, I didn't think it was the the best thing, psychologically. It was like I have five and he wanted to and then when the three happened, I just stopped everybody stopped. And you're like holy shit. But this happened, and it's like, okay the streets over, and that's basically how I presented it. And so that was the second one in my my favorite match of all time ever was the night that Eddie Guerrero. Be Brock listener for the championship in San Francisco, California appeal cow palace that to me was my favorite call. I believe the best call the Cazin I ever had his team. But more importantly, just because it was any Eddie and high Wrigley. You know, real close with busy. And just to see Hetty half that movie into able to be there in call it for any because no one in a million years ever thought eighty Guerrero was ain't gonna win the championship. It'd be broccoli. Beat Brock Leser doing the championship and it happened. And that was just one of those incredible home. It's that you all never forgetting it was the highlight of my career. Well, Mr. Cole, Michael call Bosman. Colt guy river of flames guy, political campaign guy, an incredible coach mentor invoice of the WWE. I appreciate you so much for joining us. You're the absolute man, ladies and gentlemen. Michael cole? That I wonder just, you know, reinforced everyone then you were contributor you're going to be a part of WWE program going forward. You're going to be right providing a lot of stuff on all digital platform. I think one of the beauties of our relationship, Pat is I don't think anybody's. You know, I think the only place that they're positive that you're gonna show up on a regular basis is going to be at takeovers, but other than that, I think is going to be pretty cool because you never know when something's going to drop on our platforms from Pat McAfee, and I think that's gonna put incredible.

I know there was never even thought. I just assumed that since it's already known for being dumb enough. My name Pat McAfee we should stick with it. Can I leave you guys with a question that you guys can debate? You know for Reverend always if I had if I had to change pet's name. What would I what would we change it to you? Okay. There. It is. That's the Twitter question tag me in it. Michael Cole says he doesn't check social media. So let's just blow up his phone. So notifications tag Michael colon. It tech the annex t in it and take the boys in it. And that's how we'll end the show. And if you get the best answer best name something that pops. Michael Cole makes them laugh. We'll give you some free merch from stored up at making show dot com. We have a huge Saint Patrick's Day line. Thank you all so much for listening. Thank you so much. Michael Cole have a great day.

Thirty five. Has on the side. I can roll with mine fried and can make a strong satisfied by play voice. The voice inside different. What is wrong? How? What the on?

S. one joy tanneries. Join me joy. How are you? I'm great very excited for this game tonight tonight is. I'm having the soup soup and a sweater party. I'll be watching the cowboys. The bears Vegetable stew no. I gotta have some protein in there. Yeah Yeah someone had Turkey there we go or chicken or something like that so So tonight two teams are the Mir of each other Dallas Dallas Cowboys and the Chicago bears to six and six teams semi loaded. Rosters both had won the division. Both stand stand pat with their team. Both think we got a shot at a super bowl here. Some real special players Dallas on offense Chicago on defense both had had a big distraction during the off-season Zeke. Right during camp. IS HE GONNA sign Chicago. Bears had thirty seven people including mailman in Chicago. Try My out to be their kicker and here. We are both terribly disappointed at six and six now in Chicago. They're blaming the quarterback Mitch trubisky and and in Dallas. They're blaming the coach Jason Garrett and but these are big brands semi loaded rosters tons of talent won their division. And now this morning they're both at six and six facing tonight kind of the game to define their season by the way I think both criticisms are fair. I think Mitch Trubisky's a nice this kid. But he's not a next level franchise quarterback that can pull average people at sometimes in your career. Ask Tom Brady. You're going to have to pull average people to be a franchise guy and I think Jason Guarantee Guy Kinda lax presence because his owners constantly commenting about him and the football team is the GM he'd never really feels like his team. mm-hmm but Dallas in Chicago also did something very similarly and I don't agree with it. That is the burden of expectations or good. Good Enough Dallas never really went out and upgraded. Randall Cobb but he was just replacing Coal Beasley. That's not an upgrade that was just replacing somebody who laughed. Chicago's like we're good. Let's roll with it. That's interesting because look at the teams this year. That Look Very Special Baltimore. Baltimore already. Had A great running game and they're like let's add mark Ingram Ho Seattle already. Pete Carroll had playmakers. Let's get Judean cloudy. Quadri digs at safety safety and Flash Gordon okay. Three more good players. We were already good last year. San Francisco has all sorts of clever offensive pieces like like. Let's add another one. Trading deadline Emmanuel Sanders winning is fleeting in the NFL. And the cowboys aloys and the bears were like we've got enough off to upgrade and here they stand this morning at six and six the cowboys have not had a defensive takeaway and they have some nice players but they have not had a defensive takeaway in over a month it should be noted Houston by the way won their division last year. What did they do do what did he do? What got a couple of running backs made a big deal to get a receiver and then they got an offensive lineman at left tackle and they gave up Pixel Houston wanted division Asian? They're like we're not standing pat. We're not standing. Pat Baltimore already ran the football. Well we're not standing pat. Seattle was already good. We're GONNA add three people to in the middle of the season. San in Francisco already had all sorts of explosive offensive play. We're going to add Emmanuel Sanders Dallas Chicago or got and today. They're not good. I like Dallas tonight. I think it's ugly. It's low scoring. It's going to be forty and really cold weather or not. A factor in the reason I like him is back. I don't blamed blamed for all of it but there are leadership qualities. I think he rises tonight. It's why I would make him a franchise quarterback they'll franchise tagging him is not outrageous. Here's back before tonight's game on his times this it's more to lead by example talk's cheap. We've we've talked a lot and we've talked a bunch and gotten ourselves right to where we are so In a moment like this I say hell with the talking. I'm going to do more. I'm GonNa work harder and if you're young looking for somebody to to figure it out and how to do it. Yeah look at me and some of these other guys because that's exactly what we're doing is putting her head down focusing and are doubling down on ourselves all right twenty three twenty. I'll take the cowboys by field goal. Tonight I wanNA shift to something. You know they're talking about why the NBA ratings are down. And I think a lot of it is because the NFL ratings are up. I think we have a lot of great stories this year and most of them are quarterback quarterback stories. And I think the stories are so good I find myself watching more. NFL and I haven't really burrowed into the you know the NBA. Outside of the Lakers and clippers. But I saw this this morning. That Lamar Jackson Josh Allen. Have the most combined rushing yards of any quarterback matchup ever and they play this weekend. It's GonNa be a very good game bills and Baltimore Ravens. Lamar against Josh Allen. So let's go back. I believe athleticism. A lot of people think it's a fad. I do not. There's a big difference between a fad and the future so let's go back. I'm getting new information. I'm not a stubborn guy. I'm not a rigid guy. I I am a creature of habit but I'm willing to move off things not everything but most things if you're giving new information so let's go to the draft two years ago. The five first round quarterbacks the most athletic one is Lamar Jackson. He's going to be the. MVP The second. Most athletic one is Josh Allen. He's fourteen and nine in twenty-three starts the third most athletic one is Sam Darnold. He's actually found his groove behind a terrible offensive line. The fourth most athletic is Baker. Mayfield turnover machine. Whose lack of athleticism has actually hurt him? And the fifth most athletic is Josh Rosen. He has disappeared. He's he's in Florida. Maybe it's the triangle. Oh he just disappeared in linear order. The more athletic the more success. Because I don't believe mobile. quarterbacks are or a fad. I think college football has mostly moved to spread offenses and because of the new. CBA WE are seeing offensive lines more than any time in my life regress press. What's the difference between a fad? In the future to me it sustainability the Atkins Diet was a fad. Eat Steak Bacon and eggs. It's all day you'll lose weight and have a heart attack. Sustainable is your vegetarian. Vegan to plant pace based Diet. where if you do eat that mostly you'll be healthier and live longer of fad? Is the Hummer remember that vehicle years ago four miles a gallon and and you couldn't park it anywhere. It was a really ugly yellow building on wheels. The future is something like the Tesla. It's electric doesn't make any poise. It's super comfortable. Lots attack and we live in tech world. The wildcat was a fad hike. The ball to a running back back. Oh it catch you off guard and then you know you'd eventually have to pass. That's that's a fad mobile. quarterbacks are the future. In order. Lamar's the best joshes to darnold three Baker for Josh. Josh Rosen Five. Think it's a coincidence. Most athletic the least athletic who's succeeding because of what college football is giving the NFL and because of offensive line play more than any time in my line life has deteriorated. This is the future it used to be. They called it a dual threat quarterback right the guy who ran Dan but that was the elephant in the room was can't throw. It was either pro style. Those guys win super bowls. I like those guys or dual threat. Mostly runs now. It's not an either or you can't draft the statue. It's tall over. It's all over. You have to be somewhat athletic by the way many of you have compared Lamar Jackson. WHO's on his way to being first or second in the MVP race? And I hear some Tibo and capture nick stuff. I always thought Tibo. I'll give myself credit here. I thought he was a fad. I didn't think he was as athletic. The combine proved it as everybody said. He didn't run any faster in the combine in the forty that I did in high school and he was never a good thrower. Lamar Jackson is absurdly athletic. And a thrower Lamar Jackson's not a fad. You know a fad is. The wildcat hiked the ball to a running back. Catch off guard but now the mobile quarterback is is oh he can beat with his legs and his arm. And I think it's here to stay so when Lamar Faces Josh Allen. It will be the two most athletic quarterbacks back. The two most dynamic quarterbacks athletically from that class one's GonNa be an MVP and one is fourteen and nine through twenty three games and it should be noted. Getting better. Can't wait for it.

Listen to the entire episode now. It's titled the Role of Technology as small businesses innovate. It and make sure you shopsmall every day so there was a very interesting article it hit late in yesterday's show and listen. The current dynasty in the sport is New England. I lived in Connecticut ten years. I followed at Tom. Curran was a writer back there. And he's got a very common on exhaustive article on the Brady ballot. Check thing and how Tom is. I mean we've all seen this. He's getting snappier we saw him on the sidelines. We've seen the press conferences. He's miserable he's he apparently told NBC. Sports Chris Collins worth couple of weeks ago when they interviewed him before. The game miserable collins was joking and can't believe we didn't put it on the air. Tom's like I'm the most miserable Ted and one quarterback in the history of the NFL in the article. They talk about how you know. Tom's taken paik it after. Take it after pay-cut after pay-cut and yet they didn't keep Welker and Gronk is gone and Tom's getting frustrated and bill didn't WanNa pay him twenty five to thirty million dollars even though Oh you know. PF He's a top ten quarterback. Everybody's GonNa make more than Tom Brady. And there's a they go back to an article years ago where Tom Brady's father said and nobody knows a son like his his dad. Tom Brady's dad came out and said I think it's going to end very very poorly for my son. In New England. He wants to play until he seventy and I read that article and I read Tom Current article yesterday and I thought to myself. I think it's going to end very very well for Tom. Brady I think is going to end disaster. It's going to be a disaster for New England. New England has no backup quarterback. And I'd like to see anybody else. Go Ten and two with this dearth of weapons Green Bay at a backup plan. Rogers in the ad a backup plan Andrew Luck niners. Niners had a backup plan. Steve Young then of a backup plan Gerry. Adams done a backup plan not in the AFC. With Lamar Jackson Josh Allen Patrick Mahomes. That's not a backup plan. And I think Tom Brady has all the leverage. I don't think anybody else could go ten. And two of these weapons. There is no succession plan and it. Here's the thing that cracks me up. Remember when Peyton manning was off his fourth neck surgery and he went to the open market. I mean the Indianapolis Colts loved him and said we're going to let you go knowing that he had something left Peyton manning there were seven teams. That made a bid on him he got rid of like four and it came down three really good teams. He looked at Denver's defense. He looked at Denver's offensive line. He trusted John Elway. He trusted the late owner. Pat Bowlen went for one a super bowl got to to. You don't think Tom Brady on the open market. It is not going to have an any team that can win now. The Bears Carolina the chargers. They're not interested. I mean everybody tells me Cam. Newton Chicago go timeout. Tom Brady or CAM. Newton open-market guy with a bunch of injuries or none totally focused or distracted precision thrower. Not A guy. That's never played in cold weather cam or Tom Brady. Who's lived in cold weather at Michigan and Foxborough and maybe the best cold weather thrower I've ever seen in the NFL? And I'm not joking on that you take Tom Brady. What about the chargers moving new stadium culture changer? If you end up with thirteen draft picking can can't get a quarterback you enroll the dice for two years. Tom Brady I would if I ran. The chargers bunch good players ready to win now how about Carolina new owner got got rid. Iran seems like. I'd consider Tom Brady like the idea. I mean the Indianapolis Colts have this incredible young roster Jacoby percent for one year Brady and percents or to get along. You wouldn't bring Tom for two years. Tommy just want two years. Let Me Win Games now. So this idea Tom. Brady's dad it's going to end badly lever Tom. I think it's GonNa be fine for Tom. I if Tom can either stay in New England and demanded bigger salary. Or I'm out of here or is out of here. He'll do a peyton manning and how people line up for him. There's a there's a bunch of really interesting teams here. I wouldn't count Dallas because I think they're in on that and they probably should be but you've got some Carolina's you've got some. Chicago's you've got Indianapolis. You've got the chargers. I would absolutely roll the dice on Tom. Peyton manning never forget not only had denver. San Francisco wanted him. Pete Carroll wanted me my and that was off four neck surgeries. Tom's never hurt. Tom's defied age. You don't think he's going to have open sewers on the market. You're not paying attention. Be Sure to catch live editions of the heard weekdays at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific tonight. It's a huge game. It'll get at a massive rating it. It's a classic late fall early. Winter posts Thanksgiving game. I can't wait to watch the cowboys and the Chicago bears tonight. I've already got my sweater picked kicked out. I've got my suit picked out. Got My corona picked out. Just sit up there and I'm GonNa Watch football and it's kind of defining game. I think it's A. It's a chance for her Dak Prescott kind of I think he'll elevate the cowboys and they'll win a cold but the weather won't be a factor. It's cold chilly. Mostly clear. It's fine but it it is. I'm interested tomorrow morning. What everybody's opinion is on tonight because deck with good weapons is facing a very good defense? And and and and you know we think trubisky's a bomb index a franchise Guy Trubisky so whiff and Dax a franchise guy but DAX GONNA play face. A real defense on road and trubisky is going to face a defense that never takes the ball and makes everybody comfortable and everybody looks great against the cowboys deepen so tomorrow my prediction is wrong and be like you know Dax. It's not that much better than Mitch Trubisky. Although I think he's absolutely much better but I think in the NFL at is interesting. You have to figure out and this is not just in football in life off relationships you gotta figure out the problem before you can solve it right before you have a solution watch the problem so with Dallas Right now. They've not only. We struggled to find an identity. I think there's a lot of people struggling to find the problem is it. Is it Jason Garrett so I always tend to. I take a yellow notepad legal pads out all the time enough. I'm trying to synthesize something and something's very confusing. I'm trying to simplify for you. The audience I take out a yellow notepad and I write stuff down figure out what the one thing that seems to be happening instead of. Confusing me confusing joy confusing. Everybody confusing you the audience so so the cowboys it's very interesting. So look at who the cowboys have lost to this year. Green Bay Minnesota Buffalo Jet Saints New England. Well they're all good teams. The jets aren't which jets aren't good team so well well I mean they were all on the road no some somewhere at home. mm-hmm well it was against great quarterbacks Kirk cousins and Sam Darnold a great quarterback who's Dallas losing to driving around in your car today but Colin getting at What does Dallas have as an offensive coordinator first time coach? thirty-one-year-old Kellen Moore. He's young talented. I'm told creative young. What have they lost to Green Bay Mike Pet and top ten defensive coordinator Cordinator Buffalo? Leslie Frazier Top ten defensive coordinator veteran Greg Williams Dennis Allen Bill. Belichick Mike Mike Zimmer. Oh a we have a thread on my legal notepad. Young Kellen Moore is getting worked by veteran veteran defensive coordinators. That's the problem now. Dak is yards are up touchdowns around everything's fine. What's the prop? You gotta find the problem before you can fix the solution. Dallas isn't losing all the great teams. They're not losing all the great head coaches. They're not losing all the great quarterbacks they're losing to really high end defensive coordinators and really good. It's not even like the Defensive Digest. Don't have a great defense. They have a very profound defensive aggressive coordinator who seen every quarterback in the league in the last fifteen years. Kellen Moore as a kid. He's a talented kid. But this league is mostly decided by guys. Who've I've seen everything? Mike Patton Mike Zimmer. Leslie Frazier Greg Williams. Dennis Allen Bill Belichick Kellyn. Moore's thirty one years old old never a high school coach Never College coach now. He's a coordinator in the NFL tonight by the way Callan more cowboy coordinator faces who veteran defensive coordinator Chuck begun now. Like Leslie Frazier. Been A head coach loses the job then goes to a talented defense and now is the defensive coordinator listen. I'm all for hiring millennials. I like young people. But you can't can't. You can't teach certain things it's called Games and experience so when you start looking on that note pad and Writing Down Wise Dallas losing and what are they losing too. It's not all great teams. It's not all on the road. It's not all great head coaches. It's not all great quarterbacks. These veteran defensive coordinators who have seen seen everything fooled for about two three weeks with Kellyanne more. They look good film they look at film. Give us your second punch. And he doesn't really have one. Don't you remember over the first couple of weeks. How creative Kellen Moore was? We were talking about that. Remember like God is believable Gilmore Show Creative Liam talked about that and we have we because because the defensive coordinators figured out all the smoke and Mirrors Matt Nagy is a better coach than Kellen. Moore it took coordinators a year to figure out his smoke and mirrors kellen Moore as a kid. It took everybody everybody about three to four weeks to figure out his. That's the common thread. Chuck Pagano Dak Prescott. The issue appears to be young coordinator WHO Jerry likes. WHO's a little right now? Currently maybe not long getting worked by guys who have been around for two decades experience matters one more heard the heard extremes twenty four hours a day seven days a week within the iheartradio APP. Search her to listen live or on demand. Whenever you lie there are some teams that everybody would tell you? That are good. I don't buy into. I don't really buy the packers this year. And because it's a small market. They think I'm picking on them. This is the way it is in Carolina. small-market Green Bay. You're picking on us now now. Aaron Rodgers is unbelievably optimistic. He thinks the team has turned the corner. He loves the team. Here's Aaron Rodgers talking about the packers. There's been a lot of guys who've really had to embrace race a specific role this year and I think the beauty in seeing the chemistry of the team and the personality has been the response from those guys that it hasn't been and worrying about their own stats or you go. It's been a an embrace. Uh of a challenge. Collectively made us a lot tighter group in a better team. I don't think that's it. I think they've basically beaten Mitch. trubisky isky Matt Moore Kyle Allen Daniel Jones Joe flacco Dak Derek Carr and kirk cousins in week. Two I think. They faced a fairly weak group of quarterbacks tax. I think they're a finesse team in power conference. San Francisco's more of a power team. Seattle is new. Orleans is I think in the NFC. The playoffs are going. To have Mike. Zimmer elite coach Pete Carroll Elite Coach Sean Payton Elite Coach and Kyle Shannon League coach and he got floor and I don't know what he is I am not going to say is a bad coach. I think he's closer to average great so I don't see it I think I what do they do. The special outside of Aaron Rodgers has a great arm. I don't see a lot of special with them so so it's not. It's not that they couldn't win. A playoff game win their division. But I think Minnesota's GonNa beat them soundly at home and a few weeks. I think Minnesota's the better team in that division. I think they have more of an identity entity their power running team. They're very aggressive. And I think Mike Zimmer is a terrific head coach and I. I don't know what the packers do. Well great except errands really talented. So with that. Let's go go to Greg cosell forty years. NFL films. And one of the guys I really lean on for all this stuff let. Let's start tonight. You know it was funny when Dak Prescott came into the League League we said you know. It's not pretty but he is pretty good against good teams. He's pretty good late games. He's got kind of an IT factor this year. It's flipped he can't beat any good teams James. He's actually better as a quarterback. It looks a little better but he can't beat and there's a lot of hollow stats here when when you go back deck for years ago and Dak today do do you think there's wide variations or is mostly the same guy. Well I guess he's not a winner anymore You know I think that the last couple of games. He's not throwing the ball as well and he's missed some throws that he needs to make We you know when he first came into the League he was clearly for the first couple of years clearly. Used as a complementary piece in an offense that was running through the the the running back and you'd always see him drop back and he'd be pristine pockets. There was never any pressure on him. That's still pretty much the case he's in an offense that is has a lot of talent has a good ole online I think he's been a little more Erratic with his Accuracy over the last number of weeks. And that's always a problem. But but this is an offense that I struggled to figure out and I know the numbers. I know that that Elliott's numbers aren't quite as good. But they're still giving him the ball but watching the tape. I just don't get the sense that that there's a rhythm to it used to feel that. Hey it starts with the running back and everything works off that now. I'm just I'm not sure what their staple is no. I listen. This is why we have said all year as casual observers. I don't know what their identity is right. And I think teams need identities. I just said this about the Green Bay packers and I would say some of. That's on Kellen Moore has not created an identity. Matt Leflore young coach. I'm not sure what Green Bay's identity is. Aaron Rodgers is really talented but some gays I I feel like they want to run it in some games. They don't here's a team. That's fascinating to me and I said this before the Monday night game. I said Baltimore Ravens. Seattle seahawks it feels right to me too good coaching staffs. They've made additions during the season. I have dynamic quarterbacks who can make plays. You can't plan for for Seattle earlier in the year. Lost at home to New Orleans. Didn't Look Good Lost Baltimore I I gotTa Tell Greg. Coaching matters teams. Do Improve move. Seattle feels different to me today than five weeks ago. Do they on yet. Seattle is a team with a clear identity on offense. They run the ball. I mean this week. Think about this and I'm going to try to learn more about this. They lined up with six offensive lineman on the field on forty two snaps against the Vikings The I'm actually going to talk to a coach on Friday tomorrow because I'm trying to get a feel for why they do that because they they actually. This season have played with six offensive lineman on almost one quarter of their offensive snaps. Think about that for a minute. Now they don't just run the ball out of that often their line up with six offensive linemen and three wide receivers But this is a team whose identities the run game now. Russell Wilson is a great player. That's not the point. But they're philosophical approaches starts with the run carson's the sustaining dating grinder and now penny starting to show some of the traits that we saw in college. Yeah And he's got a little more juice and a little more big playability. Yeah no I think that's a good way to put it. They finding an identity in this league. Baltimore has one and Seattle is found. There's I want to talk about a team. I like a lot now. They lost to Seattle Minnesota. But I did. I think there was a lot of positives. Adam Phelan's out delve and cook got hurt Kirk cousins in week one two and three run for your life. Whatever they're doing he at least looks more confident and more poised so forty years? NFL films. Greg Cosell what was there a key to at least east him. Being less rattled him being more poised in the pocket and his improvement. Well there another team that has a defined identity it has to play a certain way. Hey because of the quarterback so there were running football team and they run outside zone is there foundation and they work their past game off of that and they can create big plays doing that. They create big playoff play. Action boot getting cousins out of the pocket when they can do that. They're very very effective when you ask her cousins to be astray drop back quarterback in long or yard situations against defenses that have the tactical advantage with their sub packages. Kirk cousins will not be quite as good so that's a team that needs to be able to run the ball and and don't forget they don't this established the run stuff is garbage. They've already established the run. They don't have to come out in a given game and run the ball. The way teams prepare to defend them and go about defending them is. They're going to defend the run. Their run is already established so so they have to play a certain way knowing that and when they can do that they can be very effective. Yeah I thought they had a very good loss. I also thought the forty niners had a very good loss losing using the ravens offense. They did slow it down a little. What did San Francisco do as far as their defense? Yeah I mean yeah well I think to be honest with you. I struggled watching that tape of their defense because they chose to crash their defensive ends okay into the backfield meaning that those guys would go tackle the back on the fake pistol handoffs and then what would happen is they would want to scrape a linebacker or a slot corner if he if he the play went to that side and have that that defender be responsible for Jackson. But if it's a stacked linebacker inside that's hard I think you have to pick your poison when you play that team. What do do you prefer to have happened? Do you prefer the ball handed off to the back. And he runs into the middle of your defense. And they're still good at that. I'm not saying they're not good at that. Or do you want Jackson on the perimeter outflanking defense. Because I really believe and I don't know this fact but I really believe that a lot of those pistol. Fakes are not read. I think they're designed assigned plays in which he simply going to run because they know he can out run a defensive end or outside linebacker even if the outside linebacker defensive turbine stays outside. I WANT TO I. I'm fascinated by Lamar Jackson. I said this when he came out of college I said I think he's a second round guy. I think you sit him on the bench for a year make him a little better passer And by the way he didn't start for eleven game so no the ravens mostly thought the same thing they drafted him at the end of the first round but I felt like second round. Go Get your star in the first round second round sit in for sixteen eighteen games. Bring him in. He does look like though to me. I don't think he's a natural passer but you know what he's his his touch. It's pretty good Greg. It looks pretty good to me. Yeah and I think he's at his best throwing the ball inside one thing. He didn't college which we're seeing in the. NFL is he does throw the ball. Well between the numbers versus zone coverage that's something he did it at Louisville and it showed up on tape and now you see it in the NFL I think that the way they play is the only way you can play with Lamar Jackson. Because he's he's not a drop back quarterback in the strict sense. You're not gonNA play with Lamar Jackson like you play with Carson Palmer. This is what you do with Jackson. It's absolutely the right way to play and the pressure and strain he puts on your defense and the way they use their personnel and their emotions is so difficult to defend and it creates throws throws because most teams are going to play with an extra defender in the box. You have to so you're going to get single high safety coverage and then they can attack that in the past game. Let's go to Kansas City's at New England this week. So let's talk about that game. We all have concerns about the chiefs. Defense my eyes Tell mm-hmm Greg it's gotten a little better over the last month. It's steadily gotten better. That's what my eyes tell me. What is the film? I hope you're is telling you to. That is some issues with the Patriots Offense Defense And I think that that to me it could be the larger issue here. I thought it would. Romeo Cornell did this past week Colin was tremendous and in some ways he he did what bill bell check does. He decided that they were two players. On the Patriots offense that could beat Him Julian Edelman and James White and he basically structured his defensive approach to take away those two players the the yards words in catches that all came in the fourth quarter when the game was really out of hand but the structure he structured his defense to take them away and so many people forget. Because it's Tom Brady they. I WanNa talk about Brady that last year down the stretch. They were a running football playing with a fullback. They don't have a fullback right now. He's injured so this team can't run on the ball particularly well they only have edelman and then on certain downs white and they don't have much else so they're not particularly talented and they can't run. The ball on their own. Line is not as good as very limited offensively right now. Yeah I mean I think it didn't Tom Brady. I think you've seen visible reactions at press conferences and on on the sideline. He knows it. Tom Knows this is a pop gun. Offense can't beat you over the top doesn't have a tight end presence and the offensive lines. I don't think it I just I just don't think in the AFC. I've seen this year. It feels like a super bowl level team. No they're they're very limited offensively and of course you know having said all that you know. You never count out Tom Brady. I think the track record shows it was. He's pretty good but they are very limited in what they can bring to the table. Yeah I WANNA talk about a kid when the draft happened. I said Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen Our our late first early second right they gotTA figure this game out Lamar. I didn't think was ready to run an NFL style offense the Games. Obviously changing in Josh Allen was the wild pony from Wyoming. I watched them against Oregon Iowa and the balls flying all over the place got a huge arm. He's athletic but he's erratic and then. I watched Josh Allen now. The last three times I've watched him. Maybe it's coaching. But he doesn't make a lot of mistakes. He has an incredibly powerful arm. He is A. He's got some Big Ben. He's a very very agile. You know people get taught him and Terry Bradshaw use to run around big. Ben Used to be run around guy. I like what I see the Josh Allen. What's the film saying? The key thing with him is that he's been more precise with his ball placement over the last number of weeks now he'll still miss a couple against the cowboys he didn't didn't he'll still miss a couple. He'll still be a little erratic scattershot but he's gotten better with his pace and touch now. Having said that I think he needs much more work with his recognition ignition coverages is owned coverages and the throws that are there with the resulting that he's still leaves some throws on the field but he can compensate at times with his running ability and the the fact that he's not turning the ball over by forcing throats and that's critical because this is an offense. That's very multiple with their run game. They have a quarterback who can make big time throws and he can beat you with his legs and his playmaking dimension. They've got speed on the perimeter and they've got enough misdirection deception to create place. So they're doing in a really good job at Allen while he's improved he still has a ways to go and it would not surprise me if at any given game. He's just not quite as sharp as he's been. Well they face Baltimore and that could be the game this weekend. So let's move to the big play of the week with a guy. Loved to watch Shawn Watson played in the same conferences. Trubisky in the bears thought trubisky. It was better. I don't think either one of US loved. I liked Sean. He's not he's not he's not a beautiful throw the football like mahomes but he makes a lot of amazing using plays and I love watching him. Well the play that we're going to see was very reflective of this particular matchup. Let's run the play right now. Also people see it. People will remember it. It's the thirty five yard touchdown to stills and the reason that I chose this play it is very representative of this game. They're still steals now. The designed play here is a post route. That's the design of the play with Jonathan Jones on him. That's what they're trying to get here. That's the design nine. So now what you're going to see is he's going to run this route and you're going to see that Watson is looking to his right but what they do here is they. Double Double Team Hopkins. This is classic Bella check. He'd double teams Hopkins 'cause this is third down so now what happens Watson has look elsewhere and he sees Elaine to move out of the pocket and he's moving to his left. So what does he do. He adjusts his route instead of going to the post. He works with Watson and Ben's his route back to the outside to make it look like a deep sale route and they kind of read each other and it was really beautifully Italy done but it all resulted from what bill ballot check. Likes to do which everybody knows. He takes your number one threat and in specific situations like third down in red zone. The what he does is he double teams them and he'd Double Team Hopkins throughout the game and here they beat the double team. And when you play the Patriots you have to win versus man coverage yes absolutely you do and there was a flag football element to that. We called it the next day we said it. There's a flag football plan this game and this felt like you. Just Kinda a guy contact with a guy and you figured out you change it up and you make a play Greg cosell forty years. NFL films. Thanks Greg money be sure to catch live editions. You just heard weekdays at noon eastern nine. Am Pacific on Fox Sports Radio Affect One and the iheartradio APP. Hello I'm Rainbow Valentine in and for the past year. My Dad has been coming clean to me about his decades long career as a big time pot smuggler. And by big time I mean pretty big time. Sixty thousand sir. My Dad and mom had to live a double life. One is active scoreboards numbers doing parents to three kids and the other is out lost us like my parents had a secret room. Luke Kuhn the Moves Avenue Real Secret Room Book and you took out a screwdriver. My Dad it wasn't the most organized criminal he wants lost half a million dollars buried in the backyard and he smuggled during the war on drugs to find out how my dad was a pot smuggler for twenty two years and at what cost I'm Rainbow Valentine for my heart radio and school. Humans this is disorganized crimes. Smugglers daughter daughter. Listen to disorganized crime smugglers daughter on the iheartradio APP apple podcasts. Or wherever you get your podcasts ready to make some sweet cash Collins Silence GonNa give you his three Sherve bats for the college football weekend. It's time for a collins. Marquee Three Oregon versus Utah. I would take the the six and a half points with Oregon. I think their defense is better than everybody thinks. Oregon leads the pack twelve in sacks and interceptions. This is not a defense that just lays down. It's a really good defense. It's not Utah's defense but just in. Herbert has faced this. Utah personnel twice. He's been very good against him. Six touchdowns no picks throwing for under three hundred yards over over that and Oregon's offensive lines the strength of the team They got three. NFL players their offensive line has two hundred and thirteen career starts. That's the most in the nation and now Utah's defense is loaded. But they've only faced one ranked team this year and that was Arizona State at home. So Oregon's going to score some points here. I think it's low low-scoring I think it's very close. I'M GONNA TAKE UTAH to win the game but the number here I just can't I can't give six and a half points. I'll go twenty four twenty three Utah taught in a highly competitive football game with an Oregon defense that is better than advertised Georgia versus Lsu I like Lsu and I like a big minus seven swallow the points. First of all Georgia's top. Two receivers won't be healthy. They've been relying on Jake from receiving core not a lot of over the top OP components. Jake froma struggled last four games. He's complaining about fifty percent of his throws their best running back at Georgia is hurt. Got Hurt against Georgia Tech de'andre swept swiping. So I think this is a banged up. Georgia offense that has had issues all year being a big play offense and I think Joe Burrows on fire he's number one of the nation in virtually everything he's got a great old line. He's got a stud running back. I like Lsu's won thirteen straight and they are four no against top ten teams this year. Okay Okay and coach owes one eight of us last nine against top ten teams so Lsu is done only good and not only hot But they've been very good and tested did multiple times and I think their offense is frightening. I think they remind me a lot of Clemson Ohio state. But I don't think you can stop Lsu. And I. I don't know if they can stop everybody because they have their event as issues. But I'M GONNA take Lsu to win in cover here thirty six twenty seven. And I'm not sure feel that close I think. LSU's the better team significantly mificantly here. Ohio state versus Wisconsin Ohio State's better but I'm GonNa take the sixteen points and I want to read you this the last two times a team lost by thirty thirty plus and there was a rematch in the same season. The team that lost the first game when the rematch Wisconsin got blown out lost by thirty-one Wisconsin's a real team here the surreal team in Wisconsin. Khansa beat Michigan Real football team. I'm GonNa take the points with Wisconsin now. The first nine gave the buckeyes defense is good right. I nine games. It was incredible double last. Three Games Defensively Ohio states given up twenty two game only two sacks a game three hundred yards allowed and Wisconsin's done a four game. Winning streak in their offense has been rolling the last few games. This comes down to me. Ohio states the better team. You're off the Michigan game. You may be looking ahead Ed Wisconsin's just to well coached. They have the best interior offensive linemen in the country. The best running back in the country I think they keep close for a while. Ohio State Wins Thirty three to twenty money. But I think it feels very close late in the third quarter. I think Wisconsin pushes back and it's a real football game so I'm GonNa Take Underdog Oregon favourite favorite. Lsu and underdog Wisconsin again. All of our odds provided by Fox bet hi.

REShow: Michael Kay and Dr Allen Sills. Hour 2 (10-08-20)

"Thank you for listening to this podcast wine production. Now, available on Apple podcasts podcast one spotify and anywhere else you get your podcasts. Are. You this. Is the rich Eisen. Show. going. For Manny. Machado live from the Rich Eisen show studio in Los Angeles Melodrama back to the wall elite didn't make tax cat. The Rich Eisen. Show was kissed over the band Machado who did. The glass nothing upsets me more than dumb ass crash. Earlier on the show senior writer for the M. qb Alpher freer still to come bring me award winner. Jon. Bon Joe me and now. You're rich is. Our number to the rich Eisen show on the air here on this Thursday. Michael. K Our buddy from New York City in the Michael Case Show and the Voice of Yankee Baseball for so many years on television We'll just catch up with him in a day where John Job is gonNA. Join US I think Michael had a lot to say. At the conversation, we just had a WHO's on the Mount Rushmore of New Jersey music and del Tufo who is our resident music expert and our resonant New Jersey I said Sinatra springsteen Bon Jovi Whitney Houston. Yeah. That's mine, and then you know the story of of I. Guess. This is kind of like that that cheers episode where where Where the answer to the jeopardy question was who was three people have never been in my kitchen, right? Great Great Cliff cliven answer. Any bet at all, all the people that Mike Del tufo would say that he's cross paths with He said, it was Whitney Houston in high school who was part of a lip sync contests in accounts. I'm walking people through it this west called resetting the scene of the taller and our so that he he says he he beat her in Lipson contest when they were both in the same High School Area New Jersey. and upon further questioning said, he was the one lip synching. It was just a talent contest does not recall what talent she was professing or what their group that she was part of was professing in terms of their talent but we all know. Just based on everything that we we've seen from both people involved in the equation. Whatever Houston was doing terms of talent. How does Mike del Tufo beat her lip synching? I mean that's not even feasible and pitch perfect land I mean like you can't even come up with it. But that was just a great conversation. again, Jon Bon Jovi, our number three, and then We have Dr Alan Sills Chief Medical Officer of the National Football League carving out fifty minutes from his busy day at a very crazy time in the NFL to answer some questions about what is going on and what is being done to prevent it from spreading certainly, even further in Tennessee so on. So forth and so on. As Week five kicks off tonight now tonight. We're going to hear a lot about Brady enfolds. The answer's obvious Chris Brockman I. Hope you are steeled. You're ready. You're prepared to see a lot of phillies special video tonight. K.. I would suggest maybe you like right at five fifteen. Well, I mean I believe. Fox and will role in that at some point during the broadcast and. Maybe I'll put it on the air we. We actually, we're not together I was with the married people in their sweet when that happened I was. I was with your plus one. I profusely apologize to Steve Young I was bothering him the whole game. So I was watching that moment with Steve Young in Chris Berman. In Commissioner. Sweet Chris. Brockman was my plus one and two, which if I'm not mistaking your red sox hat, did you not red sox hat patriots t-shirt patriots t shirt is fine. The customer has no problem with Patriots, T shirt. But your talks. Did he did could goodell say something to you about the Red Sox now he at one point during the fourth quarter I was just pacing around. And he looked at me and goes nervous. Motassedeq again, that is who he is by the way. That is who is a fan of Roger Big Fan of Roger. But as somebody who had a team forfeited draft choice over ball pressure not a fan of the commission on a fan of the commission. Can separate the two. I can't separate the two. He's a great guy. As a guy. Got It got it get ready to see phillies special stuff. But here's here is in a fascinating story line that I'm sure. The broadcast will. pull out. Threat Out. That Bruce Arians on the sideline in Tampa as a two-time coach of the year. Coaching Tom Brady the only other coach to be head coach in the NFL other than Bella check four Tom. Brady. At a crucial part of Brady's career. After. What he did in Indianapolis the first time he was there with Peyton manning and then. Ben Roberts Burger in Pittsburgh it is truly a remarkable as we know, pairing a fascinating pairing in the twenty, twenty season Bruce Arians and. Tom Brady. Coordinating against them tonight. Is The guy who called Bruce Arians. In his car ride home with his wife the he told us about in our podcast years ago Chris after the retires the steelers announced his quote unquote retirement right from the NFL. And he got a phone call on the way home saying, okay. You say we're hearing you retired if you're if you're not really retired you WANNA come and be the offensive coordinator for me here. That person was Chuck Pagano Who as we? All know was the coach there. With. Andrew Luck. AMD Bruce Arians. When Pagano became ill. And had to step away to fight cancer. Into which Bruce Arians stepped. into that void. And Had One of the most remarkable coaching seasons ever by keeping a team. Successful. By helping. A Young quarterback, mature, and progress while also. Just merely keeping the seat warm for the head coach and not having any sort of issues of the power struggle or anything like that. We may never see again an interim head coach win coach of the year. And Arians was headed. For. Home. When that phone call went off and who's there now back healthy. Thank goodness a pandemic coaching pandemic. As the defensive coordinator tonight is Pagano. And he's coaching for a coach of the year and Matt. Nagy making a big decision. By going to nick, foles. Instead, of the kid who he needs to bring along because the general manager traded up to go get him instead of Mahomes and Watson as we all know, it's a big move by Matt Nagy. Descend trubisky back to the bench and put Nick foles in there and if foles doesn't make it cash, that's a big problem for the Chicago bears and who can make that a big problem for the Chicago bears tonight to force that offense to go point point. Is Bruce Arians and Tom Brady fascinating story tonight. With. Two franchises that come in the game at three and one in this twenty twenty season in which the NFC appears to be wide open. Wide Open. And if the offense cannot pull its tonight, the defense has to and the coordinator of that defense. Again. Is Chuck Pagano. Go over and over and a roll it over as much as I feel like I'm needing the dough and we're putting it in the oven tonight it's GonNa. Be Great. Great Week Five. Tasty treat. Between the Bucks and the bears and I'm looking forward to it man. Certainly since both teams are healthy on the cove, it front knock on wood if you're with me. And we could use that version with the NFL tonight go down that rabbit holes we're wondering about other teams and the viability of moving forward as a healthy league. Eight four, four, zero, four, rich number dial Bob and Ohio has something to say to me and I have a feeling I know what it is based on what I a bad farewell to album with what's up. Bob. I. WanNa Talk About Joe Borrowers the quarterback for the bengals and next circle make a wonderful pair also I felt like the Dan Downfall of the offensive line was when they got rid of right work that he he's been terrific out here in Los. Angeles still playing at a high level and we had Carson Palmer on yesterday, Bob and he echoes the sentiments I think everybody with a pair of eyes. Conceive, which is burrows for real man and he's tough and he's already gaining respect and. He might be a problem for more teams than just the Jaguars this year. I think it will be also they still need some ofensive lineman they can't forget about that. I appreciate the call about thank you I thought he was going to take me to task for saying that Ohio States not able to claim Joe Borough, the professional football player excited about. Joey be they can talk about Joe Borrowers a student athlete. Because he's a graduate. Of the Ohio State and they can talk about him being the kid from age. A pride, the pride of allow. Absolutely you're able to own joe for that but in terms of saying he, oh, that's a Buckeye out there. Oh Oh No. No no no. Tonight I'm able to say. That's a wolf arena out there. Even though the Wolverine. Lost his starting Gig when he was a wolverine. To Mr. Mr Everest everything in Michigan. Johann guy was I was at a game. I was at a game in your carrier dome. Christopher with my future brother-in-law Scott Schuster. Syracuse Orangemen. and. We watched Brady and Henson switch quarters. I think. We're at the same game you were at that game to that's ninety nine. Brady and Henson. Quarters. I remember I remember working game. We sat in the end zone next to the tunnel and Brady Henson was doing their pre-game jog didn't even pay attention to Brady we were Boone Hanson because that's the guy you were worried about. Did they didn't get number ten number seven question because again, my my my my history could be a little bit fuzzy. Do did Brady say to Lloyd car I want out of here and then call up. Whoever was the coach of Louisiana State football and say you gotta spot. That I don't believe. That now I know Brady didn't go on to win a heisman trophy and throw sixty touchdown passes and winning the championship initiate. But is he is he considered the goat of the National Football League. Right? He is okay and part of that born out of how he faced adversity correct I believe so. And and and am I able to. Take this helmet. The space and blue helmet and place in front of me and claimed Tom Brady is my animal do that? Jeremy Grilling. That would have been Gerry. Dinardo. Was Ninety, five, ninety, nine. Lsu and then how hunter was the interim coach how Montor? How hunter sounds like a director from boogie nights I'm. Not GonNa Lady. Jerry House. That's funny. Jerry Dinara went to took a year off and then you know who took over in two thousand I'll be examined. Man. I'm ready. Not Do that my stirring it up. You could not I don't think I can stirred up nearly as much as. Norman from Pittsburgh is about to attempt normal aren. There Norman you're on I rich longtime fan I talked to you want another time. PROBABLY NOT GONNA be, making, Favorites, today but I really dislike spring I've. Seen him a few times one time I was even a dance and they were giving away albums I gave to somebody else. I, think south I johnny Lycene probably four or five times in Atlantic City and a couple of times in Pittsburgh is a lot better for four and doesn't get the credit. So norm are you from New Jersey? Are you from Pittsburgh? Pittsburgh? Okay. But I just and fact You'RE GONNA have John Von Joe. I think one time there was a statement the paper he wished he could have been a member of the juice. I mean even though he was popular himself, that's the band. Okay. So what you got against Bruce I think he was like getting fabricated. Perform I. Think he just build them up because I saw for the beginning. And just. I. Think they wanted them to be as far. It reminded me of years ago after it all night there was a guy named Allie I never heard of them. To do the same thing with him into ten work with him Hi Norma. Thank you I'm sorry. His phone was breaking up is beginning to sound like Norman. Was Auto tuning his hate of springsteen right there and there's they're. Like springsteen but who doesn't like Bruce Though They don't date. I've heard people rim art. Why are they just don't like him Born in the USA Marinez. Bruce was as you know. I can't believe I'm about to. Stan here from Staten Island new. York. But Bruce was a rock and roll. Superstar from New Jersey Right. But he was New Jersey Zone right New Jersey. He'd be America's own with born in the USA. When I was in high school yup that was an anthem that was an anthem for the entire United States of America. And that, and like working at working class working man our blue collar like who looks at Bruce and goes net for me. And if you ever see him in concert. I'll tell you what who puts more into it brings. Dean will go for four hours. He's got more energy than anyone I've ever seen relieves after three hours. It's just like I got gypped for the last time. I saw many went for four springsteen concert is as good as the best sporting event I've ever seen in person. That's a great fantastic way to put it. He does disappoint he'll do what he was supposed to do or what is the idea of his concert. And then he'll do all the hits afterward for another two hours Suzanne I. saw him in. Atlantic City I think in the convention. Center Yup. Nine. Oh, guess what the oil lands would be, what the ultimate or or or as very. Zero Summer Sport in the USA and the body but just seeing him in the state of new. Jersey was one of the greatest things I've ever seen. The never, the Convention Hall I've Seen Him at at the pony. meadowlands. Gardens, I mean, well, the gardeners garden is loves the garden of WHO doesn't. Who doesn't I used to? Don't get me down. The only time I ever saw I only saw him once. It was the sports sports arena. He closed years ago closed it down act he was doing the river. So he played the whole river album and then played all of the hits afterward he closed down the. Radical, he doesn't want to play the big. No spots he likes the that's why he chose. He could have chosen staples could've done a call to the to he went to the L. A. Sports Reno. Him He opened up staples and never played it again. Mate. He opened up by. Its He opened the mental and like the original the burn arena, which is reach out to him for your. Fiftieth. Tell you some right now i. Would have given him the highest possible limit? springsteen set Jamie and. Teen in a small venue like at the Pony is unbelie horse, he live he the guys just increase shirt is literally soaking with sweat from the energy puts anyone that would even sit there and say.

Okay. So look the Yanks were up one game to none and they've lost last to the Tampa Bay rays The jets are GonNa Start Joe flacco something. We didn't talk about yesterday and I'm appreciative if you not bringing it up. you kind of took over the news. Couldn't get to all right. The giants don't stink on nearly as much as the jets good amount. There's a lot going on and You know this having this man call in because I adore him and I've been a longtime friend. He's also much cheaper than seeing psychiatrist. The host of the Michael Kay show locally in New York City, which is the number one rated sports talk show in that great city on also the longtime voice of the New York Yankees Longtime Friend Michael K here on the richeisenshow Michael helped me help me please well, fees have gone out rich. I did not know that. Ratings. It matches your ratings same. Is that how it works I think post-season bigger problems bigger price UK seems fair. Oh. What are we start with I? I didn't even bring up the fact that you talked to James Dolan. By proxy that just pisses me off. For such a long time ago. He's the only one. Let talk to them. You know. I mean, you hold him to account God. Bless you so all right. Let's go with the. Let's go with the Yankees I A major conundrum on their hands it looks like the razor a better team Michael is that a fair assessment to say? More talent, the raise might be a better team. I I think this thing all unraveled and it's not over yet but it all unraveled. They just got too cute by half with the stunt they pulled in game to you. You don't need to do that. You just don't the rays of done the opener situation because they don't have enough starters I mean either the Yankees don't write their starters don't trust them, but they have starters. So I didn't understand that Paul O'Neil on the post game yesterday actually said that that move might have unsettled the entire roster where WH- why do we have to do this against this team? We just destroyed them in game one we destroy two really good Indian pitchers in the first two games of the place what are we doing this? For and yesterday might have been a hangover from game too. So I said after game to that if they ended up losing the series, that will be the reason why that everything's just unspoiled after that. So I don't know I added you on twitter and you're a busy man I don't know if you saw my take on it that it was anti Yankee. The Yankees don't do openers the Yankees take your starter paying two hundred million dollars to be their number to start in the playoffs. That's what the Yankees do, and it seems that and I said this on my radio show, which is almost along the same lines. So game to happens. And they essentially, it would be like, Mike. Tyson climbing into the ring against peewee Herman. And then just as a fight about the story goes wait a minute. We have to play jeopardy. Let's let's play jeopardy. Why would you do that? Why do you need to do that and and this is not disrespect to the Tampa Bay rays because as you said, they were very, very good team but the Yankees are a fully operational death star according to Brian Cashman, and you have to play Cute Games with David Garcia and J HAP and the best thing that came out of that was a story in the times by Tyler Kettner and he dug up. A quote from Hind Bloom who used to be a member of the Tampa Bay rays staff and he said the only way the opener works is if you get everybody to buy incompletely if they don't buy in, then it mitigates whatever advantage you might have. Well, it's clear Jay Hatton by in yeah he did it but he told them, he didn't WanNa do it. So if Jay half the thirty-seven-year-old doesn't buy in, why are you doing it? So. Did they do it? I think they got to buy a half and and and the juice wasn't worth the squeeze to me. I think first of all David, Garcia could have given you four or five innings I. believe that Jay Hap- could have given you a representative outing. I think the reason they did it was they felt let's start David Garcia against a team that became the first team ever at the end of the year to start nine lefties a lot. Let's get them to do that. and. Then we'll bring in half and will force them flip the lineup. But again, you're not dealing with Don's you can't be the you can't be the smartest guy in the room when Albert Einstein's in the corner sipping dachary you just can't this is really smart organization so they read through it was happening they never flipped their lineup and moving to Hap- actually burn them because you turned the catcher into power and then man wilmore go later on also at home run off a hat everything could have gone wrong with that maneuver went wrong Michael Okay here on. The Rich Eisen show and you also interviewed Larry David like We have here on this show. So you know the concept of when you say with all due respect that does allow you to say something thoroughly disrespectful after that you call the raise a senior year called them the pee wee Herman's of baseball but then said with all due respect after that that's not that's not gonna fly Michael you need to you need to say at first and then call the raise the peewee Herman's of baseball. That's what I like to do things a little bit. Understood but. So does that make does that make arose arena? The Paul reubens view of this peewee Herman equation because this guy is. This. I. If this old school baseball with this guy already have one in the chops right now I mean it's unbelievable. What he's this kid is amazing. He is on fire. When you see what he's done and then luke void lead the majors at home run writing the cardinals are a little short on offense you wonder an organization, it usually makes pretty good decisions. All due respect did not make a decision to Eastern. Michael. You, definitely, know how to workshop and step up your. Game. There's no doubt about that. All right. So I guess moving on then the jets are as you know, my favorite team growing up and I do talk about it here quite a bit not just because of the name of the show. But what's happening there to me is a national story because if they wind up being first overall, there is going to be and man they're. Earning. It and I don't know flacco is going to start finding people in a in a more efficient way than darnold had been in the last four games and that Greg Three G Williams is going to have his guys. You know, let you say cut the personal foul penalties and half. Let's even that and that it's GonNa work out well against cuyler Murray in it and Arizona. See Arizona in front of this weekend and they took a guy from the pack twelve as we know and they said he's our future, and then they got the first overall pick and spiked the whole plan. Do you think the jets would do such a thing and I know we're way ahead of the story but the jets look terrible Michael. What's the talk in New York, about on this front. Everybody that we've had on my radio show. They have to take Trevor Lawrence including Mike Tannenbaum and. A fan of darnold. So I also believe if this guy is as good as they say everybody that we spoken to use the same comparison, the best quarterback to come out of college since Andrew Luck. So if he is in fact that Sam, has not shown enough. Over the two plus years to tell you that he is definitely the guy now he is not been quote unquote raise the right way he has not been surrounded with the right people. But if Lawrence is all that I think you've got to do that and I'm sure you'll find some takers for Sam Darnold. You'RE NOT GONNA get back what's what was essentially the third pick in the draft for him but. You can cut your losses a bit. Now, if you WANNA go around building the other way, then I guess you could get a Herschel Walker soda deal for the Number One pick and the jet certainly have a lot of holes but San US approve a lot more by that point, and if they have the worst picking the draft and he didn't prove much but my question to you rich is jet Fan. What happens if if JOE FLACCO has a great game and they actually win this week now when you say this, are we talking planet Earth or whatever place? Only on planet earth. So he has a really good game and they win and then Sam shoulder is better and ready to go Adam Gates is on a week by week job security tour does he keep playing joe? FLACCO? Is Channel Jones playing this weekend Michael in MCI Becton's not even practicing. please. You know there's there in. The way that I saw the team that I've been seeing play the one that that showed up in Indianapolis the one that on a short week watched Brett rip and do his thing, and then when he couldn't do his thing, the jets bailed him out with six personal foul penalties. I cannot imagine that Joe flacco is to find Jamison crowder. When everybody else knows that he's going to be looking for. It's strains the possibility here, but we could play the game. We WanNa play the home version of behind the. Home version I will that I will do that I. I will play this with you whatever the jets need to do to get that first overall selection they have to do, and it kills me to say because The Times that I have met Sam Darnold. To call him a dream come true and a face of a franchise is an understatement. He's great. He's beyond great. He's so deserves better than than a team that changes coaches up and then Has you know that coach swallow the free agency signing of Lebanon Bell only to have the general manager who makes that decision conducted draft then get fired then have the coach handled matters until the general manager is hired, and then that general manager weights another full calendar year to jettison the best defensive player that they have prior to a covert season in which their second best defensive player in Moseley ops out and you trade. them away for draft choices leaving the evaluation of the quarterback, which is the most important thing completely wide open to the injury bug, which is bitten. So putting it all together, I think this is a total mess that deserves whatever needs to happen to turn this into rich Kotite on steroids, and if that means the jets lose all sixteen, it'll be tough but they've got to do it whatever they have to do. How does that sound? It sounds great. It sounds like the football version of Phil, Jackson, selecting Frank NTILIKINA and getting fired a couple of days later now was that in Dolan's talking points binder that he brought to the set with you when you interviewed him Michael. was that in there was that before the Phil Jackson firing or the I think it might have been that I think it was in his talking points bleeds together. What is it like having the most hated man in New York Stroll into your studio with a binder that's is talking points on it Michael Lord. You think when you saw that interviewing and a couple of years ago I know you're rich and I don't think this is what you WanNa. Hear. I have actually spent time around him. Off The air. He's kind of like a decent do walnuts. This is no no. No. I don't say horrible human other than the way that he does act but other than that I mean, oh, boy really he's got really good at that time. He had a really great person that was like running interference with the media. And I looked at the guy and I why are you letting I? It does he know this camera people are going to see that you know It just didn't make a lot of sense but again, he got the points out that he wanted to get out but I don't think that they really. Helped him. They didn't serve the purpose. Of looking at a few minutes left with you Michael. We've got Jon Bon Jovi on in the third hour. Where does he rank for you being from the New York Metropolitan area whereas he was on. The top states guests these he's one of the nicest. The can I tell you a quick story. On Center stage right and he was great and then they started the the arena football league which he had on the The Philadelphia Soul, right? Yes and they had a big big reveal at a Manhattan Club. So me and and the guys from the show two years after we had him on center stage and I'd never had contact with him after that and we all went to the things just to get free food and The ten dollars that he would not know who I was. Okay and I said all right I don't think he will but you know I'm up at the time bobby. We're just stand in the hall and he's walking around like greeting people. He comes by goes Mike, how you doing bud? He goes boy people love that center stays that we did. That's Kinda Guy Jon Bon Jovi's is now that you have to collect double for that not only they know who you were he he referenced exactly how he knew you and and the reaction. He gives you what you want, which is not only recognition but to hear how good of a time that he had. You've got to collect double or triple from the only other guests who did that well, Larry David and I have become kind friendly. But the only other guess you did that after a long period of time of not seeing him. WAS SNOOP Dogg five years after he was on center stage. He's walking by with his group of friends at a super bowl party and he stops he goes. This dude did the best interview with me I've ever had my Li-. I can't. I can't imitate Snoop Dogg that snoop dogg was the only other guy. Snoop Dogg Jon Bon Jovi I don't mean to burst your bubble Michael. But he told me the same thing after the Super Bowl I'm sorry to say. It after. One of the many reasons why I love you Michael Kay best to your family and your beautiful family that I see on occasion on your social media and Let's chat soon.

So and your phone calls at eight, four, four, two, four, rich being the number to dial right here on a day where we're excited about week five kicking off between the Bucks and the bears I laid out some great storylines from it Bruce Arians and chuck. PAGANO. Going to be doing wits offensively and defensively, and it was was called areas that got him back in the league and got Aaron's career back rolling and look where he is now Tom Brady. So we'll hit more on that Chris Brockman news update and more right here on the rich Eisen show on Peacock Sirius. Xm. And back here now on the rich Eisen show terrestrial radio network and we're pleased to have on the program once again, a very busy man. So we're we're appreciative of the minutes that we're about to get with the chief medical officer of the national. Football League doctor Allen Sills. How are you? Dr Sills? Doing great retire you better for talking to you and greatly appreciative of the time I know you've got a lot going on and and a lot updating going on so. Look, I'm not GonNa ask you about what you what you thought about the Tennessee Titans in the reports about them practicing. There's an investigative arm for that and the NFL what does the fact that a team tests negative for two straight days after testing positive on mass or a large amount doing it, and then there's more tests positive after that what did the tests tell you about what might have happened in Tennessee Dr Sills? Well I think anytime you have a positive test rich you always trying to understand what transition might have occurred where there might be exposures where there could be ongoing transmission and we know that anytime somebody's exposed to Kobe it's not as if you become infected immediately or maybe I should say more importantly do you become infectious to others There's an incubation period where the virus starts to replicate in the in the new person, and then at some point that person will test positive they may or may not develop symptoms as we know not everybody developed symptoms and then of course, as their. Viral load continues to increase. They can actually shed virus in become infectious other. So anytime, you have a positive case certainly when you have multiple positive cases, you're trying to look to say, okay, when might transmission occurred? What are these individuals have in common? When were they around each other when where they exposed and so I think that that's why it's been so crucial to to get to the most accurate information possible to try to determine when those exposures might have occurred because you don't let everybody get back together. If you're concerned that there's still ongoing transmission or infected individual so I guess again a. CONNECTING DOTS if a team is told to stay away and then there's reports that they've actually had some unauthorized practices and they test positive after being told to stay away that would set off alarm bell just from the testing front. But we we know as you said that there's a lag time between when you're exposed virus and then you test positive and when we get those results and we go back and try to put those pieces together. So it's an evolving story and it's one where we know also that once you're exposed, you may test positive at varying times not everybody test positive. Let's say day to day for it can be up to seven eight nine days before someone is is testing positive most people we think president again when I say we not the NFL the broader medical community yes we think most people after their. Expose probably are going to be infected enough to turn positive on a sensitive test somewhere in two to five days but it's GonNa. Be a lot longer than that and we've seen that happen. So when when we and this is one of the many reasons why I wanted to have you on is so many fans when they heard about Stefan Gilmore testing positive after the chiefs and Patriots play a game that it's possible. Is it possible when that happens that he wasn't infectious on the field or does that mean he was infectious on the field if he tests positive so close to testing negative playing with a negative test. It's a great question. It's one where we have to say we just don't know the answer definitively, but it certainly possible and here's why again I refer back to the fact that these tests that were doing, they're incredibly sensitive, which means they pick up very very, very low levels of virus in the body. So you know anytime you have a virus, it's going to start replicating. You're going to get more and more and more copies, and you have to get to a certain number of copies in the virus to. Infect just to others where you can spread it to others but our cast we believe will actually pick that virus up even prior to that when they're still these very low levels you know again, no one knows exactly time line on those. So I would just say you Never WanNa, assume that someone was not infected infectious to others but certainly, with the sensitivity of our our tests, you know if someone tests negative on a morning, are they infectious later that day you know the likelihood is low but certainly not. Now. He's talking to Albert Breyer of sports illustrated in the first hour Dr Sills and he said that he you know when when the concept of when the Patriots were GonNa play after Cam tested positive was based on a series of factors including looking at videos of inside the facility and matching it up with the number of times cam was close to. Someone else outside of the facility based on inside the facility and matching it with videos of him being mask up. Can you walk me through the process of how you and the rest of the medical team goes about the concept of when you decide when somebody says positive if a game should be played or not? Can you walk me through all that? Sure. So anytime, as I said that you have a positive test, you're going to look at the close contacts that may have been exposed to that individual when they were positive. So if someone test positive on a certain day, we typically go back forty eight or seventy two hours and we look at were there close contacts in close contact information is gathered from several sources. One is these connects on tracking devices. That everyone wears. So we know that everybody has those on and we can look at who was around who for what length of time, and so we clearly have parameters set up again using general public health guidelines about distance and time. So that's one source of information, but you also want to look at other other sources of contact and and whether or not those fall into what I would call a high risk. Category because you rich if you and I are standing outside somewhere and let's say we're five and a half feet apart or five feet ten inches part we're both wearing a mask you know I risk to each other in that situation is probably relatively low. We're out of doors there's a lot of air movement. We both got a mask on you know we're at a pretty close approximation to six feet distance. But we could be inside together. Let's say eight feet apart but in a fairly small room, and maybe we're eating a meal together and we're not masked and that could be a higher risk exposure for us. Oh, it points out the fact that not every contact is the same and you have to look at each case individually. So as we look at an exposure, like you mentioned, we've got one player testing positive. We try to look at the tracking data, of course, first and foremost, but we also want to look at the any close contact that might have occurred beyond that, and then lastly, when you mentioned video, what we're trying to get there as an assessment of how how, how likely is everyone to have been exposed just in the day to day operations of the club and so have getting some assessment of whether people are wearing. Masks and whether they're being compliant with the protocols as best we can tell that was an important part of that decision making. So you basically take all of those factors together and then you've got additional testing because again if someone else were exposed prior to that in is coming into that same way of infection hope to pick that up in the first several days as well. So that's kind of all of the information you take and when. I say you take it's not just the NFL. Again, we have a panel of expert infectious disease. Doctors Epidemiologists. All of us looked at that data and said, when do we think it would be safe to play a game. The last part of that I can tell you is that what didn't enter that calculation? What talked about is well, what does the TV schedule or what about are you know competitive standings or this and that you? Know the football part of it if you will did not enter into the discussions about winning might be safe to play Doctor Allen Sills NFL's chief medical officer here on the rich Eisen show and the schedule I. Mean You know we as fans? That's that's what we're focused on. Clearly while you're doing the hard work, we're just focusing on when we can go back down the rabbit hole of not worrying about it right? So No, I'm serious. That point you don't have to worry about. We don't think that's GONNA be soon in in in in the meantime, towns is the same we sat through race, which is, how do we learn to live with this virus? How can we protect ourselves mitigate risk still try to have some civilised of our normal activity and and yet stay safe and I know that the reason why challenge? That's all I know the reason why I did bring it up in that manner. Is because this is what we're focused on as fans and when we hear about what was going on with the Titans and we knew that game was pushed to week seven. Then we hear one of the stars of the game tests positive and then this streams do get crossed on a Monday night but we didn't know that Sunday morning after which we heard about a saints player and might be positive. He wasn't. So much conversation from many people saying leaks should just stop should just stop for a week or two weeks or bubble up is that? On the table when you have these conversations Dr Sells. Well. Everything's always on the table rates. We've always said we're open minded to whatever it takes to keep everyone safe and so You certainly don't want to rule out any potential option. I would say that you have to look at the totality of the experience and the risks that are involved and and what the risk of transmission is and we've been at this now about ten weeks we've had over really close to half a million tests. Now you know we've had about eighty four players and staff test positive over those ten weeks and in the overwhelming majority of those cases you know if. You if there has not been transmission in the in the team meeting, we had one single case that's happened over sixty times rich where we had one person test positive player or coach, and there wasn't transmission in the team. Now, we don't want to get comfortable with that and we certainly don't want to say look at us. We're leading the pack year. What we have to say is there are protocols have have been very effective in most cases obviously now, we've had an outbreak on one team and we've got a second team of concern but but the point is we have to look at. Each case individually and look and see what we're able to accomplish and I think all these protocols are only as good as the compliance i. mean we can have it sort of like a game plan rich. You can have the best game plan in the world if we don't go out and execute it well, we know it does it turn out well in Kinda stay in that football analogy mode, you can have ten guys on a play doing their job if one person's not the play falls apart. So so all that to say that we we're we're ver vulnerable when we will we're not at one. Hundred percent on our protocols we said that ninety percent ninety five percent is a failing grade year we just that leads too much opening for this virus be get in. So what you just said leads me to my final two questions with you. Then first things first is obviously you'd be the one that helps set the protocols up for a bubble if it is there a plan like an a top right hand drawer somewhere because it would require a ton of moving parts and union league so much more air bubble plan somewhere and somebody's top right hand to pull out if necessary, you find it necessary. Well we've discussed bubble scenarios all the way back into the summer. When we in the Union together look at that I think I would just tell you a couple of things about a bubble. There's no absolute bubble. You've always got people coming in and out not players and coaches but you know service workers support workers and things like that and introduce the virus and being in a bubble does not change the basic need for all the other parts of. The call if you're in a bubble, these still must do masks. He's still must do distance. You still must do hand hygiene. You still have to change all of these things. So it doesn't change anything on our day-to-day operations. The other thing I think you have to consider their riches, not just the infectious disease, but what the mental health and the emotional behavioral health toll inside a bubble when you're asking people to leave their families in isolate themselves for. Months at a time that's a substantial challenge for Michelle and behavioral health and I think that's something that doesn't always get discussed but I think it's an important part of the calculation. So you're always looking at what can you gain and versus what is what is the downside? So I would just say we have all this discussions we continue to evaluate but our focused right now is is on the protocols which largely have been working and trying to. Make sure. We're following them as carefully as we can, and then the last thing that you mentioned that you know an a team, you could take all eleven right to to matriculate a ball down the field or all eleven to stop a team from doing that I'm you know if one person doesn't do the job? Then that's a problem You know not to call anybody out but in the two minutes that we have left here, obviously the Tennessee Titans. something's up there We saw a handful of writers while they were trying to do some good for a charity went out We've seen some coaches get slapped down considerably because they're not masked up. What do you say to anybody in the NFL community that still needs a message on this front doctor Allen Sills. Well, we've said that it takes all of us and and I think, maybe coach Tom and I heard him quoted yesterday who said when one person fails we all fail we we're all in this together, but we also say this is hard. I, mean, this is really hard. This is a relentless opponent and said before this virus only needs a small opening and I think everyone has the best of intention everyone wants to stay safe everyone wants to keep their their fellow. Team members and everyone in the environment safe But it just takes day after day sustained effort and and as a doctor I know you know plenty of times that I give advice to patients Intel. Here's the right thing to do. Here's what you need to do. It's just hard to follow that all the time. We all recognize that. So I think we have to give some grace to people to say. This is really hard. It's difficult to do it all the time but really the only chance we have to say is saddest aim for that one hundred percent compliance to keep ourselves safe and to keep our team environment safe and we're GONNA. Continue to focus on tools that will help us do that I know that the players coaches and staff are very committed and we're in this together. This isn't about us. Being on opposite sides, we have one comment opponent here, and that's the virus and that's united the entire NFL at this time. All right. Thank you for the call Dr Sills greatly appreciate it and keep doing what you're doing in. I'd love to have you back on as conditions warrant. Thank you. Thank you happy to do that rich have a great day. You Bet that's Dr Alan. Sills. The chief. Medical. Officer. Of the National Football League. I'm an epidemiologist on TV I. Guess I'm trying to figure out again. So it's entirely possible. that. Gilmore wasn't shutting virus on Monday night football. Right. Possible. We don't know. I mean look like we're you know what I mean like to the naked eye to us who don't know much seems unlikely. Guys out there for the full game he's talking in Patrick Mahomes, his face after the game. It. Seems Unlikely that that would not pass the virus to these guys bought unless she wasn't shutting it at the time right. That it's incubating in his body, but he's not shedding it at the time. Chris but the honest answer is we just don't know and that's why they're telling him coaches just because everybody tested negative around you mascot. Same thing could be the right now about the president just because everybody tested negative around you it doesn't mean you're not GonNa get it. And just because if you're a symptomatic and your teammates have gotten it. Let's not get together outside for a practice. GotTa be so damn careful. We're trying our best here. Everyday. Boy Why would just wanted to get that information your way eight, four, four, two, zero, four rich number to dial Jon Bon Jovi your phone calls Chris Brockman News Update, and so much more an hour number three of this busy Thursday edition, the rich.

I'm going to do press for my special special. That can be ashamed right now as a matter in fact. If you're watching right now turn this off go and start streaming me really very this is this could be a bonus material. Take thank you for talking about rich Eisen any ordinary show. It's rich Eisen stay here. You don't WanNa miss it. If you care. People do people apple care people care about eight to see the best. You're going to Chicago Chicago going to see the bears and the giants our friend Doug Robinson is joining me Sunday And barbre loser or the giants fan sitting there which Audubon says a bigger loser if I have to. Are you asking me to decide. I'd in the answer. What's the answer? Bears Fan. Nobody expected the giants to do anything. So they stink and they're doing what they're supposed to do the bears. You're supposed to be good and they're not even mediocre. Okay what do you point. The Jeff Garland finger of blame towards on that front. Wow on that while end up meeting him and he'll be a nice guy or whatever but the coach the coach. I don't blame trubisky. How'd you bisky? Skill set is as good as people. Ah Who wants super bowls. I'm sorry you either have a great quarterback or a quarterback that can do what you need them to do and if he's not doesn't have that a great skill set then you put a playbook together that works on the strengths and what the quarterback can do. That is not happening. We have an exciting young running back and David Montgomery. What's happening with him? Nothing terror Kohn a dynamite. I mean just amazing. What's happening with them? Nothing that defense have suffered at the hands about bad that offenses so it's the play Holler. It's not the play executions right. The playbook is ridiculous I I I put my hand in my head like this all game every either I'm there I'm watching on TV. I've not missed a minute. And that has nothing but but why would it work last year and now suddenly not not this year. You know what I mean. That's the point. Is You know Jordan. Howard point is Jordan Howard? I mean he signed by. What would they sign for blaming the GM to bring him in the coach? Get rid of him. Get rid of them. Yeah the defensive coordinator should be the new head coach. You elect elect Chuck Pagano Love Chuck. Pagano chuck does a great one. It took a lot to get him out in in in Baltimore Bright Annapolis Right. Yeah because you know he was. He's he's a great coach. That's our coach. That's our coach. Let's make the move now. Get rid of the GM am Brockman 's new bears GM. Would you accept that role Chris I move would make as the pairs general manager. How great in question? I'd signed Tom Brady Right. By the way side. Colin Kaepernick the same play calling. So what does it matter unless it's a new coach. Chuck Pagano Tom Brady Bunch. Who is there somebody else? That's interesting quarterback that's GonNa be available Cam. Newton Cam Newton would did you take him of course but you love trubisky. I don't love trubisky. I said he's good enough and I'm not blaming him. I'm not at all right. I I am blaming the coach and the GM they make weird moves. So you're but it still despite all this yes. You're getting on an airplane bears fan and you're going bringing the dog Robinson Executive Producer Koper. Bergh's yeah okay excellent gentleman yes And I am again getting on a plane to go see the because I love the bears and I've magical seats. I'm like on the fifty nine and by the way if you do this yes. It's the fifty yard line rate rate rate behind the bench of if you didn't have your NFL access. I I take you to jets. I would still go with. I would do work. Can't I'm busy. I'm busy the way. How many times have I asked to guest host of the show? How many times many many times every guest hosted? I know you've said that but you're busy God now I know what is it. It's the same reason Leno you never had anyone guest house. You're scared that I'm going to be that much better. You're scared that America with tune in numbers as you if not seen yet tell him who the last guest host of this program was probably thirty and Marshall. Yeah and by the way her skill set Daman Presi no so concerned about having somebody sitting in this morning still go west to sit in trying to get jerry years. Let's play hypothetical of. She does replace you. which will be hilarious? Doesn't money go to the same place initially to work. But I I know you just like me that even if we made a nickel for being a stand up are you doing this. We'd still do because it's what we do and we're blessed because we do what we love. I would love for you to do but you're Jeff. You're you've got a lot going on playing and playing with your arms to successful. I can't guess I don't have time I mean seriously you're showing up to Champion T.. Shirt you got your your your latest of Mike Tyson where you're going on plane as Chicago. What's your foreign seven bears? Yeah trying to they are. They are much more of an embarrassment embarrassment than the giants and their two. Like Hall of fame Teams I mean the bears and the giants are what football is all about right right you know I gave you one extra lost four and six to try to vote of four and seven so if you lose to the giants now there's no if come on no we'll probably beat the show. The point being is yeah. What does that mean if you beat the giants? It's like beating the jets KALPA. Yeah that's okay. That's okay just garland. You're on the rich by the way. If it wasn't for Joe Namath. The jets have no history. Then you'd talk literally is the jets. The jets are the prediction that Super Bowl. It was like we've we've you bake. It is the jets since then by the way I was a big Richard. Todd Fan like Richard so was i. And here's the issue I have with what you just said. Tell me I am retort Lewis. You're I'm retort Lewis.

Yeah the jet you spend a little beans on good morning football that the jets are involved integrally in curb your enthusiasm yes. There's a a big big thing. It's hilarious and I can't I swear a kid anything anything we'll give it away jets. That's what you've seen it. I have read the curve on the. You're the there's a few people who seek curbs before they are likes feedback. You're one of them. This honour so you've seen by the way isn't hysterical. Yawned hysteria on hysterical circle. I I will just say this about the episode. Is that when it was made that the upcoming jet season had yet to be played. Yeah it was just an assumption so and there was some concern that if the jets performed a certain way it might undercut the spirit of the episode. Yes and we're in the clear. Oh I can't. We're in the clear we gave away anyway as a football fan. I love football. Yes it is exciting when the jets or the giants are play great. I think it's fantastic and New York is so important.

He was concerned about a certain first round draft picks knee and he said that John Moran would be amazing. This is what the genius of of all time in basketball's so I'm hanging with him. He also talked about Amazon Amazon Amazon. You know it it was fascinating loved it. It was like I'm like I'm all in. I'm all in. I bought season tickets. This before. The acquiring of Kawhi and Paul George what is it like sitting next to bomber to game. It's fantastic but he's constantly.

Yeah there you are sitting next to him look at you. What's the that's an odd looking? Clap I gotta be honest with you hack. It's a low impact glad for meaner. I'm not as excited as he gets by the way. That's him in the middle of the game. There's nothing at stake. He does that all game for me. I wait like last night's game versus Celtics. You should I was there and you you I would've. I was doing somersaults. It was it was insane. was there last night too then. Using arising amazing game bird late November. Everyone's talking about Patrick Beverley Lou Williams which please they should but the the blocked Ted mcgeough Leonard actually blocks a last second shot. Were you sitting by bomber. Last night I was that Choline Dunk was like like right in front of the sickest dunk. Oh don't get me and by the way I'm all out on the balls. The balls are my second favorite team.

Blow Rico. I love the balls. He'll cartwright broke my heart. But I still a Molin on Blackhawks bears and in cup. Okay but the clippers are your adopted team in La. Well you have one you know. It's funny Chris Brockman or jeff girl here on the rich Eisen. Show you Brockman Rochman. You came in years ago and you said to me. Brockman is dating someone who's awesome not awesome as he's up up there with your wife right. I appreciate that so are you where Sarah Tiana's now with child. I am aware because David Spade show. That's how desperate I've become either the David spade show. I Love David. I Love David so much but no I. And she's a writer on that show and I see that belly and I like Mike. Are you kidding me. I I was so happy I am so happy for them. They're going to have a great child and be great parents and I'm going to give them a really nice gift. I know I know I. I gave him mm-hmm advice that you gave me when we were Susan. I I had our first is that do you know about being present right and that even when when you are sitting with your kid watching one of their terrible shows or movies or whatever. You're not watching the show. You're watching your kid derek child yet because it goes so fast it goes fast and my kids would watch kid shows and I just stared at them. I didn't look infringe them out there. You're like even if they they say you're freaking me out. Just don't care but they never said that I I would turn away then. They're not smart enough to catch the you know and and yeah it was just you know I'm my boys are nineteen and twenty three. Still Kiss them all the time. Love them can't get enough of them still stared them. My Son Duke went with me to the game. I'm last night at the game during the. Oh yes I did. Nineteen years old. I was there ever gotten confused and stared at St Bomber by accident then. No but Steve's leaves there's at me Oh man all right before we send you Los Angeles International Airport. Let's do start start bench cut down and be quiet. Cut Start Bench cut. We're GONNA give you again for those who are just joining us here on the rich Eisen show for whatever reason You have to choose one to start one to bench one to cut right three choices. I up the Chicago bears. Twenty twenty starting quarterback. toback your your choices. You Start One bench one and cut one Cam Newton Philip rivers and your current quarterback Mitchell. Trubisky start then. Start Cam Newton Bench Mitch Trubisky and I cut bill of Rivers really. Philip rivers comes available this off season. No really no way you see in sports you C H come in when it comes in the moment we're at. The bill has been an excellent quarterback but the way he's playing is not because of he's got a bit of an offensive line problem but still. It's a big bowl of. He's Philip Rivers. Yeah so my my prediction is is that you're gonNA run it back with your coach and quarterback they're going to run right back. Two Thousand Twenty will be Negga coach and but trubisky's the quarterback of course. That's the way it's getting cold singer if they got rid of the coach and or the quarterback the GM's going. Oh I stink exactly. GM CAn't ownership get takes forever to get somebody they're not getting rid of the GM. No it's all the same next. I think they're going to run it back what I'll still be there. Okay very good next one up. The there's the latest story about the Houston Astros was in his jazz scandal and basically Mohit most egregious form of cheating in baseball atmosphere. Benjamin cut one using cameras and signals to steal signs using corked bats performance enhancing drugs while the worst one. And then the one you cut is one like it's no big deal okay. Though the worst one using cameras Kosei cameras and signals to steal sign signals. I'm not worried about but cameras. I think if a player gets the second base you know getting better bear game so I would say what what. What's using cameras steal signs corked? Bats court a put a such a photograph photograph by the way. That's a big corporate okay so I started corked bat. Okay because right away. That is huge cheating. I need a drill take power tools bench bench clamorous cameras and I I cut. Poor performance formed dancing drugs. You know I am not pro steroids all that but a Lotta guys use steroids and it didn't affect our stats. There were the light light up but it didn't affect their staff so kept them going. You take someone like Barry Bonds who is a ridiculous baseball player. Give him a chance to get stronger. And and every day have his energy he's GonNa tear apart the universe so I cut that. Have you ever used performance enhancing drug yourself itself. Jeff Weiner got next one year we go next one everybody Start best place to watch a cubs home game bleachers bleachers rooftop bar across the street in a luxury box next to Tom Ricketts okay. You start a luxury box next time. Ricketts okay I've never done. I have sat at the game next. Tom Ricketts Times But first row okay but I would say luxury box because you're right there. Bleachers Churn number two and then rooftop. I did that once. Oh is that a waste of time. What do you mean? Oh It's lame. Now you know I used to live there with Conan and and before they changed the thing and built this one building from back porch and when I lived there with Conan I could see down the third baseline home plate and it was so fun and second for those who may not know you lived with Conan. O'Brien yes in one on Sheffield or on Kenmore okay right by I Show Sheffield at the apartment who I got the apartment from was Dan Castellaneta voice at homer Simpson. And Ron. We're on this but that was not. I was friends with Dan from second city So that wasn't even part of it because Conan came in after already lived there But we have for my back back. Porch rank could see into Wrigley. Watch Andre Dawson Bat. Like down the third baseline from Learfield Conan. O'Brien like a roommate. He was a delightful roommate. I was the bad dad roommate. For example I had air conditioning in my room. Go in and shut the door and not in vitamin the back room which was so hot in the summertime retired and the poor guy. He actually threw away his food when he moved out. Because it was just so threw away his futons. Utah was not it was not reclaimable reclaimable unless you like that sort of stuff last one for you yes. This is going to be a good one for you out with a bang. If you will start bench. Cut Jeff Garland Garland yes most suggestive sports phrase for this generation load management beating the shift tanking. Okay well I'M GONNA go reverse on this beating. The shift is cut. Let you know think that he's involved a lexicon. He's not okay. So what are the other two load management in tanking. Okay tanking I would bench. Okay Load Management Dear God man that works on so many levels I mean and I use my handsome drugs. It doesn't help with my load manager. But I gotta I believe in management as someone who uses the horn before as a clippers fan. I believe in load awesome. So load. Management is a big one for me. I just it's we talked about it the other day. Whoever came up with the phrase we need to come up with a way to make it sound official that were just resting our players and it sounds something serious? Let's call it load management without actually having to describe what the load is. That is being mad right. You know like works on a lot of levels it works. Say It's probably some general manager somebody buddy and then it was a broadcaster who repeated and then it gets used and then use. That's always broadcasters who pass it's like the term my bad I hate it and I my opinion is it started with somebody who worked with the mentally challenged and if that's something that sounds like a mentally challenged person would saying right and they were out playing basketball and then they they made a foul and somebody says oh my bad sometimes. What's that oh I must have heard it at work the before I let you go We also there's another phrase that's out there that it does sound like something out of curb which is as long as you say with all due respect Talking about you could say anything disrespectful. Possibly one after that I if you do that you're being rude. Here's here's the way you do it. Okay okay if I were to say with all due respect I would add you. Shouldn't and then explain what it is. You're doing okay. which is a word of advice but I think that the proper way to say it and the when people use it is this with all due respect and obviously I'm not showing when you any four you and then you make the statement? That's what's missing in the. There's two versions one with all due respect doc. You're my friend but I think this which is thoughtful and I'm helping you and the other is I'm being an ass with all due respect for for you but when you pick your nose or whatever that's what I'm saying people using the phrase with all due respect feels it makes it feel like they've now free licensed licensed free license and they look like a jerk. That's what I'm saying so unless you add one of those two either but I think for you. Here's my right thoughts right or you say I have no respect for you ever again. That's what I'm saying. That sounds like something if there's a terrible in curb herb oh you wanna put that occur. SA- curb idea. That's what I'm saying. Forty explain this. You don't like it. Listen time to explain this. Please okay so I never mind and I talked about special people coming up and asking me. What's Larry David really like and when people want to do a picture whatever? It's a kind thoughtful thing. I'm honored what I don't have time for people coming up with their curb. I is based on their their their lives. So someone who I happen to me. It's a great curb idea. Go listen no one has ever told me. An idea. Then said that's brilliant. Let me tell and then go this one. We'll be then they'll tell me and I'll have to tell them see. Why did you do it? Because here's the point that people don't know right. I'm an executive producer on curb your enthusiasm. I'm an involved. I'm involved with creatively. Show I in the history of the show have never told Larry an idea for the show. Never everyone never once. I've never walked up to one and by the way I got a lot of them I write my own stuff. I never gone up to him. Gone Hey man about this or this happened to me. Nope so if I A- producer creative producer show. Don't tell them lamey alone. Please come up and tell me you like the show or I'll say everybody you know you could say with all due respect. Here's what I would say. Hey Jeff I play quickly say say your Bill Swartz on the street bill swartz on the street. Hey I've got this great idea for Kirk due respect I don't no you have no respect for you. Don't with all due respect from actually having to be obvious that you're going to be disrespectful the point it is an obvious statement with all due. Respect is obvious that you have no respect no respect so add that with all all due respect and let them know what level it's at like I said I have a mess respect for you. So he said with all due respect and I've spent. I really think it would help you. If I'm trying to help you as a person gentle because I have great respect for you thank you. I don't ever your bill.

I'm joined by the one the only the all time to hero. We need the animals. We deserve the dark knight hall of famer danny kelly kelly what is on your mind decay. I mean what else could it be. The andrew luck retirement. Story is just shaken me to my core. It was <hes> crazy saturday saturday night news drop. I'll tell you that so. I saw adam shifter's tweet and i immediately put my phone back. Pocket was like damn schefter. Got hacked that sucks. It was like wait how long will take for the colts to refute that it was truly unbelievable. I mean i mean on one hand. I definitely understand kind of where he's is coming from but i just never expected that to happen. At all it was just so out of left field <hes> just a huge huge huge story and obviously it has major repercussions for the n._f._l. Large so <hes> yet. It's kind of like the big thing that happened over the weekend. Yes while there's like this titan. Among men on the gridiron will not be a member of his team going into the air and it's gonna shake the entire race for the a._f._c. crown <hes> because you know carlos hyde might not make the chiefs should a really good really good craig. Craig is back on back almost made the raiders did he almost almost did it. You guys missed me on hard knocks. I made a career in the corner of the end zone on a fade but when you left andrew lucked still played football. I know i'm gonna leave again. Senior research next we'll come back who knows what happens times a flat circle so oh we also are going to get into the fantasy football hall of fame another thing that happened <hes> you can go check that out on the ringer dot com really cool. It is really cool. We're gonna we're going to explain a little more about that little later on but on the ring dot com we enshrined like the most fun and most amazing fantasy football players ever. We got one of those special builds. You should check it out. It's awesome but first. We're gonna get into some news because some things happened so let's just jump into decay. <hes> angela retired wow oh wow yeah he said quote it's been unceasing in terms of talking about the pain has made playing football unceasing on relating both in season and offseason taking the joy to the game name and after two thousand sixteen when i played in pain and was unable to regularly practice amid a vow to myself that i will not go down that path again. I think everyone agrees you know if you don't wanna play football and being constant pain that works the least important part of this is the fantasy football part but it's also weird thing. We have to talk about i so yeah how does this affect the rest of the colts offense immediately. It takes that see the ceiling of the entire offense in it lowers it significantly obviously jacoby. Jacoby burke is now the starting quarterback. We don't really know what his overall potential is. He played twenty seventeen as the starter. There did not go super well l. but then again he had to come in and learn a new offense he was traded to the team like two weeks or week before the season and and so it's kinda hard and as a whole new coaching staff now <hes> so he's had a chance to learn kinda get integrated into that coaching staff. Frank reich is a really good play call in the sense that he protects his quarterbacks. We're back last year. We saw that with andrew luck. You got the ball out really fast. They went from being one of the worst teams in terms of giving up sacks to one best <hes> so there's a lot of uncertainty around around we can do in this offense. I think obviously just changes the overall ceiling of that offense. Every player. I think in the offense really gets downgraded downgraded just a little bit before we get into that. I do wanna just make one note number set which you mentioned that frank reich was the mastermind behind the eagles shifting midseason from carson wentz to nick foles so he has a lot of experience like he is one of the most successful play callers and often designers of up while we got a shift to our backup now and that obviously worked out amazingly yeah and also you mentioned the sack thing so took over for luck in two thousand seventeen and he fifty two times and then they changed offenses so they went from an offense that was giving up the most sacks in the league and then one year luck was the least sacked in the league so yeah i mean that's a massive change so there's it's a totally different environment environment from two thousand seventeen but he was terrible yeah like i said. I don't think you can look at twenty seventeen and say oh. That's what to expect from percent the season but i do think i mean luck is just he's a top ten quarterback. We knew kind of what we're expecting. I think he finished second last year in <hes> touchdown passes and so <hes> you know he's just one of those kinda guys that you could bank on having a high ceiling that offense and now it just puts everything up in the air and i think we're seeing the a._d._p. The average draft position for a lot of the the colts skill position players drop pretty significantly with the limited pool. They all dropped by like twenty five to thirty five spots. Yeah everyone on the offense and i mean that makes sense like it scares you. You want to be involved. You want your team to be filled with guys on good offenses right and so <hes> it just makes you think twice twice about someone like marlin. Mafra instances dropped twenty-one spots and fantasy prose consensus rakings over the weekend so yeah i it's just a obviously see it's. It's a huge huge real football story but it's also major story for fantasy football and it changes. I think the outlook for a lot of these guys yes mac was going around. Twenty-six overall is slated to be the main running back. He's went from twenty six. He's already fallen to around number forty seven. How do you see mac luckless offense. I and mack was already sort of a very interesting potential bell cow player. I think there's varying opinions on what his upside was going to be the season even when lock was the quarterback and now that he's not <hes>. I think that hurts his value so the game stripped he he was last year. He was game script. Depend i saw this from moscow barrett on twitter when the colts won by fourteen plus points so in other words when they when they're blowing teams out mac average twenty three point four points per game which is fourth best and all the other games surfaced among running backs right all the other games. He averaged nine points per game so in other words. He's very game script pennant. If the culture winning he's gonna get more carries. He's gonna going to get more action when they were losing the team tended to turn to other guy's name hines or whoever in the passing game try and catch up and so it really begs the question like what is max role going forward. We've heard whispers in the way that they've used them in the preseason sort of indicates that he could be a three down back but now we don't really know oh and now it just feels like they're much less likely to be blowing teams out this year. It's going to be more close games more playing from behind and i think that's exactly really why we've seen max a._d._p. Dropped so significantly yeah i mean i think their win total <hes> in vegas the rover underwent from something like dine at half to close for six and a half six and a half yeah fewer wins and then not as many bloods. The one thing. I'll say in defensive mac is that i mean why don't you just talented. I think could be three down back if he was able to stay healthy but the second one is very few. The colts have had a lot of injury problems behind him. <hes> jordan wilkins who's a second year player. He's been out of practice with a foot injury since july thirtieth or so spencer wherever they signed i believe is still on the physically unable to perform list. They signed deontay form from houston and then he towards bicep. He was weighing sucks. Jonathan williams broken rib this preseason now they've signed like char kendrick west and just a couple a couple of kind of training camp bodies but they really have just team hines who's more of a pass catching back back behind him so there is a chance that he could see a lot of volume but like just staying on the field all the time just because they have no one else really behind heinz so do you want to do a quick name game with marlin mac back. I would love to do the name game marlin mac or derrick henry mac decay man mac just because the titans offense looks like garbage right now marlin mac or chris carson carson carson easily for me marlin mack or david montgomery. I'm going montgomery then. I think montgomery but wow so full disclosure. I was already a little bit lower than mac than i think. Maybe the consensus too but i like montgomery lot so that puts him kind of ah based on where you guys said you liked him right around the r._b. Twenty range which is currently his a._d._p. On fantasy press r._b. Twenty feels right a low end rb rb to middling rb to i'd be more cited own mac than some of the other colts <hes> so i think the person falls the most is probably t y hilton and this is the big so he's fallen from going around the mid twenties number twenty four over all over the weekend after the news he dropped fifty five th overall by fantasy prose consultancy five fifty five fifty five fifty five fifty five fifty fifth is how people say fifth. I plead the fifth. I plead fifty fifth because that's where t y hilton is so who <hes> went from the tenth wide receiver to the wide receiver plead the twenty-fifth now you could look at it two ways. You can look at that one one as well. That's too far because when in two thousand seventeen if you just look at one percent was starting to week sixteen he was actually the twentieth best receiver in in that span across the whole span but that's kind of misleading because that's a total not per game and hilton was so one of the more upper down seasons in recent memory honestly he had more than half of his receiving yards in three games <hes> which is wild for fourteen game stretch and it was the only season is great less than a thousand yards and he had a less than five touchdown down since he was like a rookie but the flipside is what we said earlier which is that percent is going to have a way different offense way different experience in that in a way t. y. Hilton might actually be underrated around the top thirty so do you think do you think is going to be as boom or bust in two thousand seventeen or are you kind of interested in him around like the mid fifties and that ranch yet i i think i think there's a point where he starts fall so much in the market over corrects and you can definitely get value on him. I think this offense is gonna be a lot better than what we saw on. Twenty seventeen percent is going to be a lot better than what we saw. In twenty seventeen i just i trust reich to design an offense that will accentuate his skill set. I think he's got good skills. You know there's a couple of plays obviously it's preseason so all the caveats apply but he was making plays where he steps up voids pressure keeps his eyes downfield <unk> navigates navigates the pocket and throws downfield. He was getting the ball out fast. <hes> this was last week. I believe in the preseason game so i don't know i just think <hes> you you know. That's what we've seen of him. In this offense oh is obviously preseason football but he looked really looked confident l- ready to kinda just take over and he's not andrew lucked but they're they're not gonna make him be andrew luck and so i do think there is a point there where you can start taking him feeling okay with it because i i still think he's a very hilton is is a very good player in this offense is so much better than what we saw in twenty seventeen so t._y. Was the wide receiver wide receiver thirty three points per game in two thousand seventeen. Yes see the points. The per game was so different but he stayed healthy so that he just over the course of the year. It adds up. That's just another reason like the season-long totals can be deceiving to always look at per game. It's oh yeah. It's a fantasy games thirteen touchdowns and twenty seven so this is important. I want to linger here <hes> because i had argued with riley makati who decays your editor hitter earlier this morning where we talking about you season. It's like look. He showed up a week before the season started and then took over by week too he. It was like twenty four. It was the second you leak that is nuts imagine just moving across the country starting a new job and then you're in charge twenty people at twenty four years old. You have to run an offense which you've never done two games starting a season. So how do they manage that will you. They're just going to give you a limited option option of what you're gonna do and then they're gonna try to limit your turnovers so he threw thirteen touchdowns and seven picks. Guess what the seven picks is related to. The fifty two sacks their her hand in hand. They told them hold onto the damn ball rather than put it up for a contested catch because guess what you've been here two weeks. There's only so much hero ball you can play so those go hand in hand and i think that now you have instead of a player's been there two weeks. He's been there eighteen months instead of having to learn bad offense which is the rod sheds. Its key thing with check. Chuck chuck pagano and should since offensive coordinator. He's learning a good offense from frank reich which he had eighteen months to learn and the offensive line healthy offense line in two thousand seventeen. I believe they're left. Tackle title anthony stans. It was hurt. The center ryan kelly very good was hurt and then the rest of the guys are no offense to lure even clark but bad right tackles now. They have brain smith right tackle the acquit nelson at left off guard. They have a better ten. Whole line is better. The skill players are better. The coach is better and he has eighteen months instead of two weeks. I don't think there's any comparison including the saxon accent thing because he's a big arm. He's kind of like the funnily enough. I should do see a comparison between him and garoppolo in that they're kind of risk-takers or at least gunslingers who don't really have that label either them but they kind of put some balls and i think we might see more of that than people think i think the reason they kept him around is because he has more gunslinger d._n._a. Com with luck than people wolf understand because he only threw thirteen touchdowns and seven picks but i think that was just showed up two weeks earlier. His deep ball accuracy and twenty seventeen was actually really pretty good <hes> he was one of the better deep walter didn't throw deep a lot but he showed the ability to kind of connect dave and so. I think that's going to be part of it. I'm with you. I think you know based on everything you said. It's just going to be a more well oiled machine than what we saw in two thousand seventeen you who i actually kinda like in this offense this year and he's already. He's already been asleep but devin funchess. I think is probably going to get a lot of targets because he's sort of the preseason game. He's running a lot of these crossing routes over the middle of the field old where they do three step five step troughs. He hit his back foot and then he lets lets the ball go <hes>. I think he's gonna get a ton of those targets funchess's and so in p._r. They are especially. I think he could be kind of a sneaky value right now. I loved him before the luck injury and now i don't really know to make to be totally honest because at least hilton percent do have a track record of some sort sir. I have no idea what to make a fun chess and also the other one. I wanted to ask eric hebron jack doyle because even before got hurt that knock with e brown was obviously thirteen eighteen touchdowns last year one of the best touchdown seasons for any tight end ever. I'd leave. It's one of the top five he had more touchdowns lesser than the rest of his career combined more. That isn't tired hired. Detroit tenure shouts the lines fans in fact checker shocker doyle but when the five games they had this is great staff from derrick brown of the quant edge judge jack doyle and the games that doyle ibran played together there were five of them doyle had more snaps more targets more red zone targets and ran more routes in those five games quite a lot so now they're going to be healthy at least as long as they're healthy together. Iran was already questionable prospect of whether well do you think he's gonna get thirteen touchdowns. That's unlikely also oil. It was better than him. Now look out. I don't really think i draft either and then i would keep my eyes on jack doyle and casey completely usurp run or if he runs just amazing red zone guy. We're wrong so switching gears staying in the a._f._c. south the other news dwell the news. That was the news before injury. Luck decided to retire houston running back lamar miller tours a._c._l. L. a. preseason game and m._c. L. mc l. so so he's done for her. Get fact checked he. He's out for the year and the texans were already one of the least deep teams at running back in the entirely before this happened. I mean they traded for johnson. Evan silva at rota world is not wrote. A world anymore established the run still getting that's like when a player changes teams you can't get us but he makes a great point that it's kind even under the radar transaction but the duke johnson trade to the texans was the most draft capital a teams giving up for running back since the colts gave a first for trent richardson yeah well so conditional third rounder as a fourth round of for and then that could become a third and if he becomes the third either way that's the most teams paid and evans point which i i will agree with him is that they're going to give them a lot of snaps. That's four lamar. Miller got hurt so for starters. I think that they think duke is probably a better runner than cleveland thought or at least they're like. We're going to line this up. All of the field he can be on the field at the same time as a primary ball carrier. 'cause duke johnson is along with kamara and james white one of the best pass catching guys in the league. You can line up a lot now. He's kinda primed to be the starter but and the guys behind are like a who it's like damn maria crockett who's an undrafted originated missouri is like the next in line for being startled five eleven two hundred twenty five pounds. Maybe they might just signed carlos if the chiefs carla side so and what do you make of the situation. Do you buy do johnson as not even at every down back but a second and third down back. Where would you take johnson and do you see someone emerging elsewhere in this backfield or them adding more help or sticking with duke i mean i think it helps do johnson ton. I think it makes johnson's values skyrocket. <hes> and i and i like him potentially more like for instance right now. Kenyan drake is running back twenty nine to recall joining back twenty. I think i would take him above both of those guys in that ranges sixties and seventies. Maybe so that to me is kind of right now has a._d._p. Is <hes> running back thirty five eighty seven th overall. I think i would take johnson over rishaad penny. I would probably take him over. I might take him over a snacker. I think he's going to get more plays. Gonna get more volume. I think duke johnson has been pencilled in an fantasy players mind as just kind of strictly this pass catcher but if he will change of pace you look at new johnson college at miami. He averaged sixteen carries a game and only two catches game. He's a really good runner you only to his game him but he forty two carries in his he's in miami. I think that's the question because i think i mean there's this you. You talked about this a lot. There's this idea that there's really false positions and that there are cup some running backs that are really receiving bax. James white is the obvious example and i've always thought aww do johnson is receiving back but i don't think the texans give up a third round or unless they're like this. I can be on the field. I want i out. I don't like to guess what i don't like to to use logic when it comes to the texans necessarily important thing they don't have a g._m. But i do agree with you like in theory that that's a lot to give up for a guy and not not make him your feature back <hes> especially now that there's been injury so <hes> i think it right now i'm bullish on do johnson and then i think it's worth taking taken a flier adding guy like democrat crockett krahn hayden whoever you think and no one really knows what it's going to turn out to be whoever you think is the next man up for the backup job. I think the two guys most people think it is going to be either chronic dinner or dama crockett but we don't really know what this is. The best counter oh to the draft capital argument is that the texans front office is three men out like rotation of just like bill o'brien jack easterby and their player personnel guy and it's who knows what's going on there. I mean it's like like <hes> bill. O'brien in theory is on a short you know he's like on the hot seat <hes> so he's not thinking the long term and he's at the g._m. Like giving up a third round pick or whatever like. I don't know necessarily if we can apply logic to that choice. I think he's just like one needs to be good this year so i don't know what that means but i think i i do think i am bullish onto johnson one less on the texans kiki u._t. <hes> third receiver returned turned from sprained ankle this week and then another player who seems like he will return his antonio brown. <hes> yeah lost his helmet appeal <hes> qataris helmet grievance and apparently has parlayed that into an endorsement deal pairs thing was just a scam to get a good endorsement from a helmet company. I think which it's brilliant it's genius. Everything just comes down to spawn in our lives now untied girlies pump. The kitten was fake and look part of the hulu.

No matter where you live use promo code ringer at checkout six fifteen percent exclusive student discounts are also available okay some more news to get to there is a roundtable of fantasy news from all the beat writers at the athletic and vincent bonsignore who covers the rams for the athletic had had a good tidbit on todd gurley. That isn't necessarily new information but it's finally reporting out what we've kinda suspected which is that cruise knee isn't the problem right now as much as the brands do have a plan to make sure the he stays healthy throughout the year all right so yeah. This definitely relates to an article. I'm writing right now for <hes> for the ringer dot com great website <hes> it's basically about todd girlies crater of a fantasy football playoffs in two thousand eighteen and versus his twenty seventeen fantasy place which was literally the best of all time they want to keep him healthy throughout the the full season they want his knee and his legs to be fresh all the way into january january in december and january and so <hes> this is obviously very significant for the rams as a team and for fancy football and for fantasy playoffs <hes> so basically <hes> you know they're probably going to end up managing his touches early in the season. This is something that we've kind of thought was going to happen but to me him. Tom vincent bonsignore saying all this kind of like reinforces what i'm thinking that they're gonna have a pretty strong <hes>. I guess you know not committee necessarily zarrella but they're gonna give you know the number two or three guy significant amount of playing time whether that's darrell henderson and malcolm brown john kelly whoever so <hes> i think to me this is pretty you know this is significant news or significant report so i think he's kind of giving his opinion but it it is what we've thought yeah. I know it's worth reading. It's worth reading what he wrote so he said this is quoting vincent bounce inury said quote. It's not so much the status of the knee that should be concerning. It's the rams plan to manage guerrillas his workload. That should be a bit worrisome. Guerrillas looked healthy active and explosive their camp for now anyway. The knee appears fine the rams though wanna keep it that way and have a plan in place that they hope apple insure. He's an optimal form com december january that likely includes monitoring managing touch snap count in the first part of the season <hes> by slowing down his work load the question becomes how how much will that affect us numbers and then that goes into i mean i. I think that this has been the plan all along. I mean girls trainer. Told cbs's says david richard <hes> earlier this the summary said everybody he said quote. He's now at the five year five mark. All we're doing is managing arthritis because they knew that it was going to be a thing coming out of georgia and then quoting trainers said they're keeping weight down working on his strength working on his jillian short areas. That's going to give them a better chance to be healthy and weeks fourteen thirteen through week seventeen when they really count so i think that girls it's not going to help fantasy owners a ton when he's healthy january but i think that is the plan. This news is like it's very interesting because it almost makes me like early a little bit more so just a jog your memory and this is what i wrote about for the ring. It's a companion piece to our fantasy hall of fame thing which again is really really cool <hes> last year in two thousand eighteen through thirteen weeks girly. He trailed only patrick mahomes n._p._r. V._r. points he averaged twenty seven point four points per game up into week up through week thirteen over the next three week. So that was the fancy playoffs. His production cratered yet. He's scored five point eight points in week. Fourteen was held out of the lineup in week sixteen and he ultimately finished in that three weeks stretch fifty fourth among all all players in fantasy postseason p._b._r. Point so he was he was a p._r. He was a fantasy playoffs disaster if he got there. He deny help you once. You got there this year. I think that that could definitely change. I don't think he's necessarily going to match what he didn't twenty seventeen but again just to jog your memory twenty seventeen postseason fantasy hennessy postseason was literally the best of all time he had a having him in your lamp was like having an extra flex player to sometimes <hes> just in your life he had had so just to run through it. He scored eight touchdowns in three games. He rushed for three hundred and sixty six yards. Five touchdowns caught sixteen passes two hundred twenty five yards and three touchdowns through the air. He totaled one hundred twenty three p._r. Points that's a forty one point average in those three weeks. That's easily the most in the last decade and it was thirty five points more than the second place finisher which was laying on bell <hes> so i mean like he was significantly significantly significantly well above everyone else. After position he had in weeks fifteen and sixteen so like your semis and championship rounds. He's scored forty nine. Sorry he scored forty five and then forty nine points. I mean he was just like he literally carried fantasy teams to two wins. I don't know if that's gonna gonna happen this year but him being in there and having you know his knee be healthy all the way through the postseason. It kinda makes me like him a little bit more just like that. They're that's their plan so girly average twenty six point six points per game in two thousand eighteen which was number one amongst running backs even if he did seventy five percent of that this year that would put them at nineteen point nine five points per game which last year would have made him running back nine so he's still he's still rb one. He's still in rb one even if he's twenty five percent worse than last year. He's the rb now so don't let go too far in your draft. Perhaps yeah where are you willing to take him. At this point. Everything really does come full circle and fantasy. I feel like you hate somebody buddy and then you wait long enough until you like him again. Then you wait too long and then you don't like them. It's just like girlies now in the range. Where hey you know maybe he is a good value and then people will overdraft optum after hearing this pod because millions of people listening about cast liens. We moved the needle of the needle. What are you gonna take him at so right now as a._d._p. In p._r. raise fourteen. Are you taking him early second round. I know i'm taking him late second. Okay i'm taking right after nick chub and right before right after internship before dalvin cook. I think that's where i find it acceptable. Why i mean obviously accepted who cares what i think. You're moral standing and fantasy but i i that's where i would start to think about. It and i wouldn't poultry till later because i just yeah it's just i just really liked the crop running back in the twenties and thirties i think kerryon johnson <hes> <hes> to some extent aaron jones mark ingram <hes> sony michelle. I think are all undervalued. Actually i mean we've joked when we're doing our fifth top fifty ranking that i would take the like the guys in thirty five to fifty and swapped them with twenty to thirty five and like that's a joke but like not really so i find so much value in the running backs later that i kinda just loved the receivers in the in the teens yes if you carry on johnson and juju instead of taking biographer odell and kerryon johnson by a lot then girly and and adam feeling like a lot. I can't even overstate that you're here. I todd gurley might be good still yeah. I mean that's and that's the bottom line is is like <unk> throughout the last few weeks like you said it has gone for full circle for me. I really really loved daryl. Henderson like a month ago. Got delayed dave compared alvin kamara because everyone loves to compare alvin kamara now yeah and i was really down on girly for a long time and i've i've come time full full circle on it now. I feel pretty good about early and i'm very much less confident about what henderson's gonna do so. I don't know it's it's it's one of those things where he can almost like <unk> over think it but just based on the idea that they want to keep him fresh all the way through the year. I i almost feel like that makes me like him a little bit more just 'cause 'cause. I'm so worried that he's just gonna fall off a cliff. That's like the main thing. I don't want that with my second round. Pick but speaking of that decay you wrote a companion piece for the fantasy hall of fame <hes> package that we did. You wrote a companion piece. That's looking at the best fantasy playoff performances from the last ten years and gurley was mainstay the best but you also looked at a bunch of other fantasy player performances that were spectacular. There's a lot of obviously and i think it's easy to forget. The one guy that kind of just stood out to me was lady on ballots easy to forget how fricken dominant he was as a fancy player especially late in the year because these he held out all of two thousand eighteen kind of really screwed people over. I mean obviously that's not what he was worried about. The fantasy did screw people over took him early on <hes> he owns three of the top ten fantasy postseason scoring like n._p._r. Over the last ten years twenty sixteen twenty fourteen in two thousand seventeen so he finished fourth p._r. In two thousand sixteen in that three weeks stretch late in the season six in two thousand fourteen in ten to twenty seventeen so he is he's a late season monster monster and to me. That's one thing that kind of stood out <hes> like i said you kind of forget about it because he hasn't been apart of football for the last whatever months so twelve months plus and so that was one thing that definitely stood out to me. We'll see how it works out in in new york but he's been the type of guy like when the when the the weather gets cold when snowy out and when it's cold and rainy and he's just dominates <hes> the other one that relates last year which is just something that i keep like coming coming back to is derrick henry twenty eighteen his fantasy playhouse like explosion was just hilarious he posted forty seven points in and we fourteen carriage while seventeen times two hundred thirty eight yards and four touchdowns. The only problem was only fourteen percent of of teams had him started that that that game so <hes> very few of them were probably in the playoffs. He asked that one that one was another one. Just kind of obviously it's really funny and probably ably is influencing where people are taking him. This year like finish. I think is definitely sort of inflated his value to the point where i i just haven't taken any drafts. 'cause i just think the tines offense has not looked good in preseason. I don't think it's going to be that good and so yeah yeah. Derek henry's performance at the end of last year is probably the best example. I can think of white seasonal fantasy points are often ally and and also like he is the new armour cooper the friend zone which is there's like two or three nights a year where you're like. Oh maybe there's something here and that just screws you because then you have this idea in your head that can work long term and it can't amari cooper can work long term but that's not there. He's a better chance that henry is not but the girly thing is we're. We're sticking with because girly. Two years. Ago is incredible and i remember there. Was that screen that he caught <hes>. I think he liked to this piece. <hes> he just he called. That's just zoomed for like seventy five yards. It's wild yeah. It was a little bit traumatic for me because that was like when the rams <hes> <hes> basically took over the n._f._c. west and one of those games he goes we fourteen or fifteen they they just dominated the seahawks and i was like okay. The seahawks rain in the n._f._c. west is officially over at this point and so that was that was a traumatic moment for me. Sorry that note by the way i was going to say this. I was gonna okay. There's about derrick henry before his fantasy playoffs explosion. He was averaging seven point nine points per game. He scored ninety five fancy points in twelve twelve games prior which would put him at one forty fourth overall so just keep that in mind. It's also just a good note to t. Y hilton like you know it's the people adam and twenty seventeen probably didn't play him for two of those three games one hundred seventy yards so stuff. That's boom-or-bust players man. I don't destroy jackson this year <hes> before we move on to face jason hall of fame. Let's take a quick break. Here's an insider travel seekers from hotel tonight.

It's beautiful <hes> but we're gonna run domain names. I mean so we've inducted a whole new class. I mean there's a lot of obvious names in here like peyton manning ladainian tomlinson and emmett smith and all the jazz. There's also some less obvious names in here but you can check it out. It's really fun bore. Just gonna run through just a couple of notes. That would really fun to stand out. Obviously the best fantasy season of all time is the dating thomas in two thousand six <hes> four hundred and seventeen fantasy points points one thing i just wanted to note which kind of blows my mind thirty three touchdowns twenty eight rushing three receiving to passing he led the league in rushing yards and if you took away all of his yardage so so league-leading eighteen hundred and sixty rushing yards takeaways five hundred receiving yards didn't gain any earth his thirty three touchdowns would have been the tenth best running back. Oh my god two two thousand six fun fact as the first year ever played fantasy football. I was twelve and i remember playing against the tomlinson. It felt like every game he would throw a touchdown run at touchdown catch a touchdown and i was like what is this normal and then no one ever did it again. I was like hat trick plays antoine rental l. but there's no running back. That actually have really do that before since perhaps josh jacobs now former quarterback in high school yes. That's this a little tidbit. You always get about receivers but why no running. I'm back server quarterbacks and high school whereas well. They're all quarterbacks in high school. Everyone can do everything in high. School is in the n._f._l. Except me i didn't make the raiders shit d k you're both the beloved beloved shaun alexander. I thought it was interesting going through this exercise. My memory of that time is is pretty foggy but obviously that two thousand five season where he scored twenty eight touchdowns that was n._f._l. Record at the time obviously the danny thomas broke it as we talked about just now with thirty three the next the year but alexander was i think in that stretched from two thousand one hundred thousand five you can even tack on two thousand six and that stretch he was is i think second only to tomlinson as one of the most dominant backs in the n._f._l. I kinda just forget that. I think you think about two thousand five when he was so good and he's running behind the seahawks elite offensive line but you forget that he did it for like five years straight from two thousand one to two thousand five before tomlinson broke his record into six alexander had eighty seven touchdowns thirteen hundred seventy five hundred yards rushing thirteen hundred yards through the air plus eleven touchdowns. I mean he was basically second only to tomlinson as the most dominant back i mean i i kinda just forgot that it is kind of a long time ago now which might memory starsky a little bit foggier with each passing assing year but it was fun to go back and look at alexander's just elite stats in that that five year stretch for him yeah he was kind of that middle domino between priest holmes broke the rushing record and then chalk zanu broke a couple years later and then thomas and shattered it. The next year knows like everyone is falling the way we talk about passing going up every year. It was kind of how running back with it's exactly now. I feel like that's probably gonna be the apex of just the run game in the n._f._l. Forever right because i think it's just a at this point. No one's gonna run as much as those guys. Did i think i think everything comes back. I think that the individual records will probably stand. I think the team records. I'm never gonna count anything for team. Wide thing sean. I was only eight years in the n._f._l. Which is very different than our next inductee. This is very true. <hes> jerry bryce who word on the street really football basically the long so sure i know everyone was not playing fantasy football in the nineties but some people were bill sentence was he'll soon as uh-huh so rice was just gonna fantasy football possibly better <hes> seasons blew. My mind was nineteen. Eighty-seven twenty twenty two touchdowns in twelve games that obviously got broken by radimov seven who did it sixteen games to get twenty-three sad rice at two hundred fifty fantasy points at nineteen eighty-seven and in twelve games and the only people had more than that since our jerry rice and ready moss even though they have four games each year so jerry rice legend and just because i want want to cap this off i ten years racist career his rookie year is the twenty second receiver after that his finishes among wide receivers each year. I i second. I i i i i first fourth. He did not drop out of the top two until he was thirty four and then you fill the fourth and then and if you think it's just bill walsh and joe montana and steve young on the forty dollars offense when he went to the raiders at thirty nine years old he was the twelfth best fantasy receiver on the season and then at forty forty years old he was the sorry eleventh best thirty nine and then he was the twelfth best at forty so wow and when you said two hundred and fifty fantasy points assuming that standard tendered yes exactly. That's a whole team in my opinion p._b._r. Which now seems overwhelming just taken over in the last three years but for the vast majority as in yeah the weird eccentric thing so so to put that in reference of last year tyreek hill led the season with fifteen point one points per game and jerry rice would have done twenty casual twenty a casual twenty game five points more than number two. It's totally well but there's one player i wanna talk about before we move on from the segment and it's a it's an appreciation for rob gronkowski that guy was. I don't think people have forgotten it clearly but that was amazing. He was incredible all the other twenty nine year old to retire this season so he obviously he struggled with injuries <hes>. I just thought this was amazing but even he missed twenty nine games in his career. He caught more touchdowns than any other player in his time. In the league. He was a touchdown freak. <hes> i saw this. The staff got from scott barrett to pro football. Focus is expected touchdown metric which attracts play-by-play data so it's taking where everyone is standing on the field where they're getting their target. The ear yards blah blah blah. All the different stats that matter in terms of where you are and then they spit out a number of touchdowns that a perfectly average player fire would have scored given those opportunities those targets and air yards and where you're on all that according to that stat gronk scored twenty four point one on touchdowns over expectation during his career as the most among all players in the decade he was just freaking beast he was so good did not have the longevity but the peak was probably the best tight end of all time that's one casher yeah i think he was the most dominant tight end ever in terms terms of what he can do on the field both both blocking and just his red zone touched his ability to body of anybody on the field. I think he was the most dominant dominant tight end of all time yeah the he's even when he's covered. He's open is one of the most frustrating things because it's over but it's more true gronk than probably anyone else in n._f._l. History okay and lasts up if we want coverage of some fantasy football one hit wonders. These were compiled by your editor riley. Makati shouts the riley. A lot of this was his brainchild. This was his his baby. Yeah really really cool project. I up the obvious one pain hello so the browns twenty thank god that. Can you remember that season. That was so much fun. He was over surgery. He was on the cover of mad. I was mad and open it up to fan voting and they it's kind of like when the england was like oh we're going to let everyone vote unlike the name for this research vessel and boaty mcboatface that was before even that happened when it wasn't obvious that the internet would ruin democracy and all the cover of mad and he was like coaching a youth football team like two years later in mid august and the giants okay you wanna come. He's out of football two years later the lao how fun he had sixteen so one thousand six hundred and fifty four scrimmage yards thirteen touchdowns rumbling tamblyn jumping over guys. That was just a lot of fun to watch that season. I remember six touchdowns over the rest of his career mazing using stuff sticking with the browns the other one hit wonder actually one of the most one hit wonder first of all time josh gordon <hes> where he just decided to be ready moss for two thousand thirteen sixteen hundred forty six receiving yards nine touchdowns still the only back to back two hundred yard receiving games in n._f._l. History <hes> the biggest and fastest and strongest person on the field. Perhaps not one who under this year we never hopefully not. He has a chance to erase that label. Hopefully not indeed <hes> the other one. This one ended up being wonder justin four set on the ravens in twenty fourteen nine year career but in two thousand fourteen fifteen hundred and twenty nine yards eight touchdowns he won't happen yeah. He came out of nowhere man. I think he was <hes>. If i remember correctly he was a sixth round pick at cal. He was marshawn lynch's roommate at cal and <hes> i remember this because he was a seahawks hawks very briefly and i believe they kevin out her yeah yeah and he down surround. He played for the seahawks for while he played for the ravens. <hes> really fun runner. He's he's just like a really explosive jittery runner <hes> i don't think he was like necessarily built to be a belco tie back every year but the opportunity in two thousand fourteen and took advantage of it i i was a huge four set fan. I just always thought he was really fun to watch. Never ran for more than seven hundred yards in any other season running back throughout the right opportunity speaking of running back to weird run opportunity steve slayton in two thousand eight one of the deepest of cuts sixteen sixteen hundred and fifty nine yards ten touchdowns at his rookie season. The arian foster explosion before erin foster was even arian foster and it was that wide zone system in houston i think in like they just found guys that could that could really run in sleight steeds lane was one of them foster was better though <music> out of the out of the league within four years but that year as a rookie he was one of the top five fantasy running back sorry sixth among among running backs so what the hell we hold on one hit wonders near did or harto infanticide we love him. That's all we live for you. Now who's gonna be. Who's gonna be the sif slate in the rookie running back this year. Dr one is the best one year he's gone. I think you damian williams having like an extended hamstring absence and then darwin thompson being like a top top-five guy but then he's a sixth round pick the chief just find another running back next year. That's the fight a put money on someone being like top ten. We never hear from their games darwin thomson. Maybe we should close this this episode with our favorite one who under songs lubega mambo number five just the classic wow okay okay oh man panda by designer well. I don't even know what that is on brand seeking wonder on brand meaning like i'm older you. Are you trying to call me like a millennial because you go between the two. It's whatever it's even though i'm way whatever makes me sound right in the moment where better which is so gen z. uh-huh okay this is probably gonna this is gonna confirm danny and saying that i'm old but i'm going to say the safety. The dance by men without is it men without hats. You got it sing it sing. I know you know this. You know we're going to want to golf friends behind. We're gonna leave all of you behind right there so <hes> thank you for listening for bearing with us through <hes> men without hats men then with that who knows but we'll be back later this week hotel tonight shows you incredible deals at cool hotels.

Arians of the Tampa Bay buccaneers the head coach of the Tampa Bay buccaneers will join us. We're GONNA have a red beard in a red s an hour number three, and I'll tell you what Chris I'm glad. Chris Brockman. I'm glad you're staying here because to have this is GonNa be a rough our for you. I'M NOT GONNA lie to have the teammate of a mookie Betts up first and the coach of Tom Brady up second This is a rough one for you. On for you. Know more mookie Betts to use the Patino phrase not walking through that door and Boston. And the same thing of Brady? Gronk Rock Oh my gosh. How did he slip through the cracks? And you at eight, four, four, two, four rich number to dial here on the rich Eisen Show and Joan joining us right now making his way to the ballpark in. SEATTLE. Member of the eighteen and eight. Los. Angeles dodgers is one of our favorites calling the program once again, Justin Turner, how are you? Justin. I'm doing great. How are you guys doing I am doing fine. So what is it like playing this year? Just what's it been like for you? Yeah, definitely different Obviously. a lot of new protocols lot of new hoops that we have to jump through to make sure you guys are being safe. Guys are taking care of one another and looking out for each other. And Health and then. You know once you get to the Ballpark, it's just weird. No fans is tough. Man I'm. I knew we had great cans in La I. Knew we always fed off their energy and and what they brought every night. But you don't really realize how much. You enjoy playing in front of people until. There's no one there so. It's been a weird Parker share. So I mean we at home are hearing sometimes crowd noise get pumped into our feed watching the games. It really is nothing in the stadium at all they're playing nothing no music, no walkup music no or or your, or there is sort of that stuff still going on a little bit. Now that's still happening they. They do have crowd noise going on they do have the cardboard cutouts like last night for example in. SEATTLE. Seattle I think is leading league in Cardboard cutout attendance. Is that right is that right? But in that ninth inning, you know they cranked up the crowd noise a little bit guys in the Dugout were joking saying that we're we're playing the seahawks not the mariners But Yeah, there's walkup music. There's crowd noise they put some stuff on the boards in between innings something that the dodgers started to do You know they've had guys. Kinda tape you know, for example, Clayton Kershaw. You know when they announced the lineup yes. His daughter Kelly will be talking today. He. Clayton. Kershaw. So there's they're getting creative with and stuff, but it's still nothing more of our fans it. It's not the same well I mean and then just have you had a conversation Dave Roberts, leave it off or did you and the rest of the Locker Room and your teammates and your clubhouse have a conversation about. When you're not at work about conducting yourself in a manner that doesn't maybe make vectors of covid be brought into your world. Did you have that conversation at all as the dodgers? Yeah. It's not just a one and done thing. It's an ongoing conversation. We've had several of them and really you know what comes down to is you know being responsible for yourself. Being responsible for your teammates and trusting that all the guys are making the right decisions because even though you know you're doing everything right and and you're you know following all the all the rules and being compliant it just takes one guy on the team to not do it, and then you know you might see something that happens like the Marlins or you know the cardinals. So it's a company conversation constant reminder be responsible be smart. Make good decisions don't be selfish and You know it's something that's taking place almost on daily basis Justin Turner of the eighteen eight best in the base record in baseball currently Los Angeles dodgers college from Seattle making way to the ballpark right now are you dressed in your uniform or do you dress there still? Are you going like Little League to the game and you? Know. The parking and close and get dressed their locker rooms or are now There's. Kind of an expanded roster but they're still trying to socially distanced us in the locker room. So what what you'd see in the locker room now is There's. Every. Other locker in the locker room is taken up and then in the middle of locker room, they brought in like portable metal ones in space guys out in the middle of it. So it's it's a different look in there. food rooms aren't open anymore they're kinda taped off and we have a couple of dodger employees who are back in the food room and you have to ask them for anything you want and they bring it to you you go in the bathroom every other urinal is blocked off. Every other shower ahead is blocked off. So everything's changed. Everything's different going into the ballpark for example in Seattle. We have to enter in the ballpark and Centerfield now, and you basically walk outside the entire time through the bullpen. In through left field and then you go down the dugout up to the clubhouse, they don't let you go inside the building anymore. So a lot of things are different things have changed You know after the game, we don't eat dinner at the field anymore we come back to the hotel everything's boxed up. in a conference room and you get off the bus, go in the conference room the hotel, pick up your dinner and bring up the room and by yourself. So you know a lot of changes. That's so Justin Turner here on the rich. Eisen. Show. All right. There's a couple of things I wanna hit with your first things first the date of Tuesday July twenty eighth. Do. You remember that day of this year. Justin. Do you know what day that is referring to? Off the top of my. I guess here's a here's a hint. It's Houston. Houston you were in Houston that dot nine that day that date ring a bell. Did you know at all was Enjo-, Kelly's dome taking the mound that night at all Justin. In Joe Kelley domes any. Okay. I do know I do know you know Joe Competitor I do know that he is. notoriously. Capable of. Throwing pitches all over the map I think. They actually hired him as the guy that drilled the ball and Bull Durham but yeah I I have no idea what he what he was thinking what going through his head that night obviously a lot of stuff happened. Yes. The all behind us now but doesn't on your you're smart guy you're a perceptive guy I assume you in the Dugout were or yours you're standing on the field beginning to piece stuff together right you're beginning to piece. Yeah. Out At third base yes and you know during the. During the career yeah. About I think Brantley was on second and then after struck now. You know Brantley was running third. I've played against played against my for a long time ended up came over and we're kind of talking while that stuff is going down and. you know I wasn't really in the middle of it. I was just Kinda you know sitting back like. Watching. You know a lot of times those things everyone's just kinda running their mouth and John and nothing really happened. So. you know there wasn't ever really anything to get excited about at that point. So basically, from your third base position, you did not see the facial expression that Kelly delivered. Leaving, the amount I imagine till after the game, right? Did you have a good view of that one? Just now. I didn't I didn't see it at all I didn't hear it. You know it it is pretty quiet in there. You can hear a lot of stuff. I know the the entire inning, their whole dugout was. All over Joe Yelling You know. I think dusty was calling them the. Guinea. Effort the whole innings. There was a lot of a lot of John on nurse side before any of that stuff even happened and I think I think if you listen to the John Boy Video, you can actually hear it. it wasn't. It wasn't just You Know Joe there and I know I know dusty went on and said the JOE antagonized it, but they were they were all over on the all ending. So so I mean what what happened though after the inning and the in the Dugout in the clubhouse afterwards did did this in some way shape or form bring you guys even closer together? Do you think as a team? I ended look at and I understand this is a sensitive subject because. Nobody wants a baseball in the head we understand that but this is a ton of there's a there's a very large bridge and there's a ton of water under it. You do have two more games against. Houston in coming up. In September and just a couple of weeks So did this at all bring you guys you know in a more cohesive manner together do you think? Yeah, any time something like that happens I think it brings guys You know closer together and You know we've had a few incidences this year. Come up and. When you see the guys have each other's backs and are standing shoulder to shoulder support one another I. Think. It's huge for team chemistry if you believe team chemistry or not. But you know those those things do help teams come together and you know we've been playing pretty good baseball since then so and just a last question on this subject did you see trevor bowers shoes that he was planning on wearing and Major League baseball apparently told him if he warned he would get he would not be able to play in the game it'd be checked potentially suspended or find if you've seen this justin. Shoes which. You know that that's another guy that's not scared to speak as the mind opinion and. personally I thought you great You know there's the t shirts are going around all over the place. The three Joe Kelley has all over social media I mean. I? Don't think. They were supposed to lighten shoe rules this year, and you could wear whatever you want but whatever message you on apparently unless it. Could offend rob Manfred, you can put whatever you want. So. Your piece of metal shoes is not going to be worn. So what you're saying This year I'm still working on those I'm trying to find the right shoe artists. Get. that. Thing down. I bet so man I bet. So just turn here on the rich Eisen show. Okay and the other subject is sensitive to my friend WHO's across the way here Chris Brockman who's from. The new. England area loves the Boston Red Sox. Please do not hold back in your answer whatsoever. I really want your your unvarnished opinion Mucci bats as a teammate and know what he's brought to your your team Justin. Man He is. Everything advertised and then some You Know He. His appetite for getting better and working and not taking things for granted is off the charts probably better than anyone I've ever played with. Almost almost, it's almost funny you know being in the cage with them before the game watching him work and it's like every swing he takes he finds something wrong with it he's constantly tinkering and. He's a perfectionist and I. think that's what makes them so great. And since he's been. Bumped up to the spot you know our offense is really taking off and he's a game changer set the tone from the first pitch. What he doesn't right. He's everywhere in right field I feel like there's four four mookie Betts standing in right field seems like every ball that goes up he's camped under it somehow and disagree guy great conversations with teammates helping guys out and always had a lot of conversations. There's been a lot talked. About Him Austin Barnes and Barnes he's playing really good right now. So you know he's just a guy that you want to have on your team and I think, La, is very, very fortunate to have in for the next twelve years. If I'm not mistaken I, think it was seeger who was on the receiving end of that throw in Arizona from corner that he threw on a total dart on the line right? Wasn't you received from third base if? The credit for it but no, it wasn't me. Okay. I mean what? What? Bigger when you're when you're watching that though in real time I mean what the hell is that. I mean won't talk about. Freakish ability. That is unbelievable. What he was able to do them. From. you know I I got the chance to help wig who obviously has a right. You know tremendous throwing arm and I was on the receiving end of his. Throw in Colorado and Trevor Story tried to stretch triple. And he threw the ball from the right field wall essentially in the air to third. and I was mookie throw was comparable for me. You know he's going to his left up against the wall spins and fires dot right on third base. this incredible I mean he he's a freak athlete. He's a perfectionist. I think everything that he does he's really good at I mean. He's A. I think a two. Handicap Golfer. On come on now can re under games bowling everything. He does excels at he's is good. So nothing I don't think anything's going to surprise me. He's more. So seven tool players what you're saying. I think it's like well, I don't know I mean it's unbelievable and then you know they have the ability he's got six three homerun games in his career. That's just that's just absurd I. mean that is isn't your free you're going to be free to do that well. Look Justin I know you just had a milestone hit of your own thousand career hit congratulations on that before I let you go you and your wife Courtney have the Justin Turner Foundation together helping people in Southern California I'll give you the floor on that what you're up to how people can get involved. please.

Of Los Angeles they have a ton of great programs going on over there, but the ones that were. you know we work closely with or you know the Veterans Homeless Veterans Program they haven't men's floor and a women's home getting almost veterans off the street helping them make that brutal transition back into everyday life. And they just reopened their foodline again WITH LA UNIFIED? School district not opening backed up. There's a lot of families in. Los, Angeles, who depend on that hot meal program that aren't GonNa, have it because the schools aren't open. So you know we've worked with local businesses over restaurants ordered food Dunston deals got some who donated goes up there and families can drive through the line and and pick up hot meals. For three or four hours a day. So there's always good stuff going on up there.

So we're back on with everybody returning to us in twenty seconds and just about now fifteen seconds, Bruce Arians and the Tampa Bay buccaneers will join us. Welcome back to the rich Eisen show eight, four, four, two, zero, four rich is the number to dial chat with Justin Turner of the Los Angeles dodgers moments ago talking up his new teammate mookie Betts who left a Chris Brockman. Boston red. SOx. And the other New England superstars leave New England I. think that was it. Okay. This gentleman is one of my favorite people I've gotten to know and covering the National Football League as the host of NFL network since two thousand three. He is the head coach of the Tampa. Bay buccaneers Bruce, Arians how are you being a? Coach. I'm doing great rich. How're you doing brother I'm doing great. First up. Let's talk about your quarterback competition. Always said if you don't, if you don't have to, you don't have any, we have one. What in the world has it been like to have TB twelve in front of you in a practice Bruce Obviously, you've been around some great ones. You've coached some great ones. You've got another one right there you. It's it's fun I'm every single day is fun because you're speaking a different language only talking with the guy that You know twenty years experience and you start talking stuff. He just looks at says, sure you know when you're talking to these young guys, GonNa what I. Always Call it the book Brook Trout because their mouths always hanging open what I mean Tommy he just gets it. I mean every single day it's fun. It's a ton of, but also read if I'm not mistaken some your comments you've made recently that you treat tom just like everybody else he gets yelled at like everyone else is that are you are you working Blue Tony? He's he's he's got called a couple of anxious not nothing fair but. He likes to throw the ball walk throughs and we just don't do that and he's like, but he's open I said that's okay. Somebody will get hurt because you know it's happened before. So He's at Oh Gotcha now. So we don't show Boston welcome. You now you're on that same page pretty much right there. Clued on that one but I think you're kind of touching on something that is of interest is is you've got you who's does it the way that you've done it and? You're the coach and you've got Tom Brady who's done it the way that he's done it for so long, how do you guys make that all Mesh to make sure that you're all rowing in the same direction in that regard? A GREAT quarterback coach Claude. Christianson offense coordinator. Baron left with her, and this has been fun. You know. Hem Learning. What we do me picking his brain on things he likes and you know, I'm sure it's our offense. That's just what we call it and We sat down one day for about three and a half hours. Talking about what he loves to do and It really wasn't anything different scheme. Wise. Just adapting the terminology and putting the pieces together on who's going to do the jobs that that he was talking about. it. It's so much like I said so much fun. I haven't had this much fun coaching in a long time I imagine. So I just thought to myself as you're saying that Bruce that I would love to have been a flying all talk and ball you talk and ball with Tom Brady and left which included Christianson and just figured out what do you like? Let's figure this out. Let's just talk ball. Let's talk playbook Gimme just Gimme something from that conversation. Would you what was that like Bruce? It was You know I, I like Julian hair and we do this. This is how we try to get him open and you know those some tape on and said, this is pretty much the same concept said, yeah, it's like I would we'll put kristen hair we'll do that same thing and we'll call it this and if there's something. That we don't have and you like we'll call it whatever you know it is and So it's just been spent a ton of fun. Just, I wish we could spring practice and many stamps and would be light years ahead of where we are right now. But right now I like where he's at, is that how you got gronk Bruce is that how it works where you say he's like kind of like Gronk here and you're like, well, guess what we'll get you. We'll get you rob Gronkowski is that how is that how? He sold me on the fact that he wanted to play again it's happy retirement you know and They said now he's he's he he wants to play and he's in great shape You know I called a game in the wayland. My year off in Krak he didn't look like himself. He had braces everywhere and was struggling to get down the field and You know we got here. He looks like he eight years younger all healed up and running around looks fantastic. But you taught me sold me on in and then we we we've got the deal done. So when you say sold you on him, Brady's like Hey I've been talking to Gronk and and he wants to come back and then you needed to because again you you you know football you watch tape, and then again in your as you say, your year off with CBS, you saw him and he was kind of a shadow of his former self you needed to be convinced that he's ready to roll or mentally physically that's that's how that works. Both physically and mentally all in and You know he he has been a joy also and You know again, learning all new stuff for the first time in his career also so Bruce Arians here on the rich Eisen show. If I'm not mistaken as well you said Gronk is not a in Florida shape or is not used at Florida heat of some sort of said. Is that. I don't think he's ever sweat as much since life. So We went air conditioning yesterday came up to so yeah New England. Weather knowing that. This is just for you, baby. So I guess you weren't at like his Miami Super Bowl Party where you know you're you're on it that one. Bruce I don't think I. Think he had like a half his shirt on their. Helmets shoulder pads and off crappies got up on out here. Sweating is under degree. So where does this rank for you? I know you say you haven't had this much fun coaching in a while you're standing there you're at a practice and you're looking out there and you see Evans you see. God when you see. Brady. AC- GRONK just to name for obviously there's OJ Howard. There's Ronald Jones you're just seeing on offense and just six guys. Where does this rank for you? You've been around you've you. You've had Peyton. You've had big. Ben You've obviously what? An Arizona team with fits you've had some serious people. In front of you, where does this one rank? The yeah. This is as good as as we were in Pittsburgh. when when we were really good with Tienjin, San, Antonio and Mike Wallison and then a manual centers Antonio. Brown heats Miller I mean that crew shot men and hall, and this this group reminds me a lot of that group lot of interchangeable parts I think we're are tighter rooms stronger than that tied their own was, but he was special. But these these this title is really special right now with the collaboration of guys, we have a whole five of them so. It's It's probably the best we've had and you mentioned Antonio Brown, we know that he played with Brady in in the reporting is all about the Brady wished at Brown could have stayed there and we know that there's a lot going on with Antonio Brown but now that his situation has been somewhat settled by the the league, at the moment, is there any way mid season that you might be interested in a reunion on that front? Bruce That would that would that would take a lot of different moving parts, injuries and other things that that would have to happen I i. don't think that whatever happened. Okay and the defensive side of the ball. You know when I last visited with you and that we sixteen contest before taking on the Texans and we spoke to. Sue We spoke to Shack Barrett and obviously you know Todd Bowles. You're you're DC that that that unit was so tight in terms of run defense pass defense. Do you think that that's been tightened up for you and if so how? Yeah I, mean the the number one goal and you'll see some was to bring back the defense and get j. p. p. and check and sue all back We did lose Carl NASA. and that young second, there was just growing and growing. So to get that defense was the priority and then all of a sudden. Some. Guy Named Tom Brady phones in in in the picture and it was out of an office. I imagine. So and so I guess now Getting Ready, for this season on just talk about you personally Bruce you know you were here in studio just about a year and a half ago thinking about getting back into the game and you said that You were concerned about getting back into the game about your health that you thought. You know your your family thought at some point you. You might have an incident on the field, which is one of the reasons why you you? If you will step away and said that you would only return if. Somebody could run the offense in a manner that would be suitable for you and you found left which in that regard you've been connected with him and you've adored him for some time she got that. But now we're in a pandemic here. How are you handling your business personally in a pandemic? Yeah. I actually just just got off the bike and and did some Oxygen therapy on a bike and working out a little bit more than I have in the past and. You just have to be safe. I go to work not GONNA, get sick at work 'cause we tested every day and everybody in the buildings tested. So and I go home and I don't go out so It'll be hard during the season You. Know family members might WANNA, come to a ball game if they're even fans there Have to get them tested. You know and then they I, think they understand they're gonNA have to get tested before they can come and and we just can't risk it. My wife had pneumonia couple of years ago and We're both high risk. but we're both all in on the season and and don't everything we tend to stay safe. No doubt about it. So when you say not GonNa get it at work I mean so many fans are obviously watching what's going on with Major League Baseball. Especially because that's not like the NFL being played in a bubble unlike the NBA and the and the Nhl of do you think that things are so buttoned up at the facilities that really is just GonNa come down to the vectors outside the facility in the players if they quarantine well enough that we can get through season in the NFL No doubt about rich. I had a lot of doubt early I mean she'd ask that question in June I said no way. But to see the protocols you know the commitment our players are making It's only gonNA, take one guy to screw it all up and you know and bring it in and everybody not knowing sick and then when we get ten or fifteen guys. But I don't think we have one of those guys who's going to do that to each other. And But Yeah I. Mean we're we're in a hotel is quarantined. We come to work. We go back. There are guys living at home they they've all been. taught to and talk to your family members about where you're going how you're going there which going. So that, you don't bring it home and So yeah, everybody's gotTa be safe. So I assume again I I know there's a dumb ass question but I'll ask anyone we've had this conversation, right? I. Imagine How many times you had this conversation with your team about this very subject. Every day. Every day. Every day every day it's like you know we stood too close together on practice feel I know you can hear your coach you six feet apart onto being. It's every day. It's just a reminder walking by the locker room put your mask on I. Know You just gotTa shower put some back on anyway and So it's just yeah, it's everyday and I'm I'm I'm the mask police so I have to be I have to be. Sneezing what things are, how what did you have to do as a coach? You know obviously in twenty, twenty but. You'RE GONNA. Are You coaching with ask this year? We'll see you on the sidelines wearing a mask. During the yeah, I've got. Go by eight different kinds and then I looked at learn shield but. Really, good wraparound sunglasses are just as protective for your eyes. And the shield fogs up so bad. So right We've got a great doctor here WHO's heading up? Greg skaggs has just amazing. He's in he's in charge of our whole covert and our our whole sports science department but he's he's on top everything and it gets on my bed pretty good if he sees them. Lacks anywhere short and ads. It's just a couple more minutes left with Bruce Arians the Tampa Bay buccaneers so have have you gone over? Has the League given we? We heard the league gave out directives about traveling and what it's going to look like on the road and. Separate planes to keep people socially distant there. What about the sideline has that been hammered out about what a sidelines GonNa look like this? We've got some directive slightly and The only just going to be the players on the sideline and end up everybody's. It's a tier one type thing. Right? Certain doctors. Have to stay further away and. Then and only certain personnel the you know the chain gang and that's about it. That's it, and then so our guys going to have to stay separate on the benches and things of that nature like you're GonNa yeah, we talked about it you know It it's still hard when you're coaching somebody or a group of four guys like offensive line guys i. mean it's really hard to be six feet apart and although there probably gonna be that much crowd noise. So right it's something I saw something while we're GonNa have a practice to practice games on our stadium right to try to go through that kind of stuff and what about somebody who's known maybe as a coach to say the magic word or two to the officials is wearing a mask and a help. In that regard that. Helps as far as the spit. But the mad like. A side, you won't be able to read Your Lips. They won't know maybe it's you bruce he will not me but probably not. Because some something procedure is that what you're saying? Certain finger pointing that direction. Oh Man I love our chats I. Guess last one before we go, is there one thing you've learned about Brady? It'd no one thing that you. Did you but you didn't know and that you've just been up close and personal that you've gotten to know about. TB. Twelve that you didn't. At He's just he's one of the guys. He's one of the guys and I. Really Love being one of the guys. So. That's something you didn't know and you're seeing up close and personal for Tom Brady. Everyday young player everybody they bought Imagine Tom Having as much fun as you write. It looks like he is having fun and it really is. Yeah that's great. Hey, Bruce. Thanks for the call appreciate the time as always best your family to you take care. Thanks you guys Bruce. Arians head coach Tampa. Bay buccaneers. One of the guys just not. Just not one of your guys. That's okay. I'm definitely rooting for. My kids. My kids have a new NFC team for a hundred by kids having new NFC team. You know they're going to root for the rams because they've adopted the rams here since they moved back right and I've see But they are absolutely gonNA be all about watching Tampa Bay buccaneer for sure. Which is why? The chargers kick the tires on him? I'm imagining the raiders did sure they did. I'm imagining other teams or Titan. Do not. Know. But. The buccaneers. Honestly my kids would not have cared one second about Tampa Bay Buccaneer But now they want to see they'll. Probably WANNA TB TWELVE JERSEY GRONK grant or they eighty seven. So Tommy needed to sell. Area by the way, he's already calling him Tommy. He's one of the kinds normally. Come. Down to the coast. I don't WanNa take a break because I'm enjoying watching Brockman Stu in his own sweat like this but I gotta take a break. Your phone calls and more. Setup Friday show to a moment. Face Tom more on that staff to. Still. On the Buxton Fiat opted out. 'cause Tom wars gotta be pushing eighty if not older. Tom More is you know was was was. Manning's offensive coordinator, and then an and and aeriens would be the quarterback coach. Antwan randle El is an assistant code. They've got all these coaches and they've got a ton of experience. They're set up. No Tom. Not, they're taking them right now more not win the super. Bowl? Twelve to one might. Show up bell check. That's I'm telling you. He's got more. Let's dig into this a little bit between the two. If we just count check and Brady it's so set up it is the team was a great. Paxton just sat a no hitter broken up. O. Big Maple.

We're enrolling through it Greg Right now we're going through. So Youtube where you're seeing our, we're working to get ready for this sort of thing. What are you going to do with your two minutes off during their and our that we haven't had for effort day literally the last time I think we had like commercial breaks where we could get up and do somebody just stretch because I was. Before you left for your birthday. Don. Yeah that would have been the twenty fifth twenty fifth he was born. So the took fourth. Yeah Suzy Sat in that chair are last day on audience. Probably. A stretch and I went off to the combine where there I mean there had to have been covert in Indianapolis hundred percent covert in Miami Miami Yeah for sure. Yeah. We a lot of us probably had myles reading something they think the US covid co outbreak start at Sundance. Always right. In January people coming in. OCCAS people were coming from all over the world. Don does not want us to be epidemiologist right now. No kidding Dr Mixed Algae Rebecca Go the phone lines at eight, four, four, two, zero, four rich in a second but. Let's just dive into this because. Bruce Arians winning a super bowl. With be just dynamite. For the human race it really would be I mean he he lockup hall of fame for Bruce He'd come out he got up you gotta think. The Bruce Arians football life is something else sure is to time coach of the year. while. You're also talking about how he got into coaching and then. How. We got into head coaching. It would not be a story. Outside of the. Rings that he won with the steelers. A great final story for the steelers. Where they said he was retiring and he was driving back to his. Memory he told us that on our podcast that he was driving with his wife. Back, to think what was it, Florida or something like that there were. Driving somewhere. After the steelers had said, he was retiring and he had no in real intention of retiring phone rang and he looked down. And it was. In. An area code from Indianapolis. And his wife said, don't answer it. I think that was a story told on our podcast answered it and the colts higher. Coal tired him and then we all know Chuck Pagano got sick. and. He strolls in and one coach of the year is an interim head coach. Hired by Arizona wins coach of the year for Arizona. Dan. There took the Arizona cardinals to the Super Bowl. Crazy and Retires again. But this one was he was literally sitting in that chair next to me on this set a couple of summers ago saying was definitely interested in the browns job was open about it was thinking about coaching needed to talk about his health and the only way would come back. If he could hand the offense off to somebody because his wife and his family thought, he might have an episode on the sidelines didn't want to be the play collar because of the Byron left, which was that guy. And then he gets gifted. And he gets. Tom Brady fantastic. Well, he's already and he's got the receivers. Yeah and there were seniors that are behind these guys are terrific to I mean. They can coach up the receivers there. You know, Evans Godwin both went out and they dan the they had Gaza name tags. That will run routes at the end there. Yeah. I'm a game that I called last year I unfortunately needed name tags of the quarterbacks. Calling Watson Winston Winston Watson. So, much during a five minute period that my wife is texting me saying Gee are you hearing what you're saying? You need to. Susie the text me literally saying you need to talk about the elephant in the room here. Miss naming some of these guys but. If, area I mean that'd be awesome. You'd have to start talking about what he's done in his career in how he's coached and all these greats and been there for these guys in has been a head coach. Of Note and then you got the buccaneers in two thousand, twenty having Brady and Gronk and and Evans, and Godwin and line that can protect Brady Brady smart enough to protect himself staff that can feed Brady and of roster that Brady can utilize to. One would think a remarkable amount of success if a tough schedule defensively while everybody in that division don't. Start Super Dome. And then home for Carolina at Denver home for the chargers at. CHICAGO, these are winnable games for Tom Brady and in New England. So you have to figure common to. Play here. Home for Green Bay man now, you just wonderful Green Bay okay. Vegas giants home for New Orleans. You Know Heaven Forbid we get catch a break here as the human race in this country. and. Therapeutics. and. Something happens to make this a more manageable situation for us. And we know who's got it and we can quarantine those who have it and we can be contact tracing those who around those who have it And then suddenly the end of the year you can start. Getting fans. In stadiums I know that sounds like a pipedream than it does they're talking about as Troy Vincent. WHO's in charge of you know the football operations for the NFL said yesterday that Sean Payton in a competition call mentioned bubbling up for the playoffs in the same way that Major League Baseball's thinking. Sounds like grandma accurate. So you could bubble up in in the Tampa area. You know what you could do to is you could bubble up with gasparilla. Have Party have playoffs. Right I mean as long as you bubble up, you test everybody doesn't matter how many people are there Ryan, we'd be there. that. Sounds Great. Signed me up. I mean this is the conversation that the NFL is having right now at the super bowl is going to be like. All the Super Bowl in the first week of Feb. Look, we shouldn't get ahead of ourselves. You heard Arians had to say that he he is a man who is obviously at risk feels fine in the office. That's what I've heard from everybody in the NFL that the protocols and that what's going on at the facilities are so set up and you know how Rootin- is people get coaches can get. That they're setup that as long as everybody does well at home they're not going to bring anything in and they think they can get this this season, Don. Eight four, four, two, zero, four rich is the number to dial Allen. Dallas has been hanging on forever what's going on now. Brockman has looked. So pain the last hour I it's it's it's done well I think he's I think he's handled the great. You know everybody's Great. Outside of New England. mookie Betts Brady, gronk conversation. I. Think he handled it very well, Bernie I'm trying to be score every time you your pantomime he squirming in a CD like wiping his using this mass to wipe his brow. He looks like Jay Cutler after a five interception game. Gene could lure So. I. Kind of Miss. You guys your day Tom. Flora's was elected to the pro football fame forty three when he wants for a super bowl by the way that's what I mean. That's amazing. If you look back those old pictures, that's what a forty three year old look like. So does that mean that now the Tom Coughlin's going to get in you know what great question now COUGHLAN has a hall of fame resume. And and he's one too and that is the magic number lower. Floors. Now, he's better than floors one with two team you one, one, one with two teams I want to, but was successful with two teams. Well, this is a good question. He's got the hall of fame resume and obviously he launched the Jacksonville Jaguars to success well. Thanks the call appreciate it. That's an interesting food for thought I. I've always thought he's had it. He's had that hall of fame resume the greatest team of all time. In football. The Patriots at year. For that alone. Well. And then the question is does Eli Getting Pink. Plunk waiting. plunkett still waiting. I think Eli gets in more than COUGHLAN. I rich. Interesting although you know there's one coach a year now did it with Jacksonville there's one coach a year that's going to get in from twenty twenty th obviously floors would be next year they have to vote eighty percent of the selectors have to say yes. But I would absolutely knock every selectors head together that says you know what floor is even though he's been nominated for the first time as an eighty three year old man. Atom for. Please crazy. Okay. So I would not people's heads together. Figuratively I'm I'm a lover, not a fighter. But then after that, you've got. What are the other coaches that are waiting is again, I know ver- meal doesn't get mentioned a lot. His football life is remarkable. Don coryell 's name gets mentioned from San Diego. The Eric Coryell. System has been knocked off quite a bit since its inception. I don't know if there's any other coaches that are not thinking of, but Coughlin would after be one of them Jimmy, Johnson was one and not. That box yup. Tim in San Diego you're here on the rich Eisen show what's up Tim? O'Reilly which welcome back Sir. Just wanted to welcome you and Dan, patch or to P. Card you on Sunday looking fully. This is tim the fashion designer who I know you guys just love and that studio okay. She thrilled I'm going to be sitting in front of the TV. For six hours again every day. tastic. My with my guitar strapped on. I. Told Her she let me do that. I'll learn how police star spangled banner on slide guitar on Tony. Welcome back and I just wondered What are you guys thinking about padres these days ten teams Machado kicking up their heels do. Hits another home run last night in the Machado walks it off up dead bride grand. Slam rattle Grand Slam wasn't what was the count on that Grand Slam Full Council cal three away, right. So Enjoy. WALK-OFF I thought enjoy. Machado's getting tired of touchy feeling. Always I love it. I love it. You know good healthy competition in house and thanks for the call. Tim Best to Mrs Tim as you referred to her. It's all good. And there's expanded playoffs, right There right now, I think they're at five hundred hovering at five, hundred year, San Diego padres. Your. Your pods. Could you imagine they sneak into the playoffs? There they are twelve two games over my apologies. Daniel is could probably texting me right now. That man exciting. excited. God I love tat. East Junior. SOFA. La You're here on the rich Eisen, show what's up Nathan? Every you guys again. Thank you. Good to be heard. Thank you. So now you're moving to peacock I was wondering if you would entertain the idea. Of A refurbished opening to your show, have kind of an idea to pitch you on that I think your interest. Cost any. Money. To pay me I'd be. Colbert world. It's hard to find work right now. So. I don't Know Adam are call screeners fronting for the bottled water around here right now. So But since I'm the boss I gotta figure that situation myself. But. Underage. Sorry. What's your idea? What are you? So my idea is that you take your run rich run theme and make a whole opening out of it. You would kind of start as you would start, you know at the combine the as at the starting line. and run rich. Run all over. La. You would take a hand off from one quarterback. You might catch a pass from another k you might catch a long court pass from from any NBA player you WanNa. Make layup out of it. This is off the effects of course unless you WANNA do. At each location. And then you know your past you and you probably I think you're on various sites in La. and. Maybe you finish up. F- in the end zone at Rams. Stadium. Wow. ooh. I mean that's a that's a that's a blockbuster right there. I'm I'm thinking about I'm thinking about. The only have like how much time for the open buddy opens only forty five seconds. So like rich does it run that fast? Ram Saying Thank you. We'll. We'll. We'll. We'll. We'll take that under advisement. Don't be don't be grumpy at me just because. I've been picked on the south. been picked on talking sports had to get a shot talking sports. The potential MVP of the short and MLB season happens to live here and. Possible. Skull A. What, are what pass catching pass throwing combination in Tampa Just happens to be your old ones. Let's go to Mike in Alabama to give Brockman a little boy right here. This is GonNa be Great. Hey. y'All come on. Mike you got about a minute hero. Here we go. Here we go. Rodman you think you've been picked off your doll on. All right. Here's the deal I got it back my boy rich this Michigan. Ole. Miss Stuff. You. You probably hear the. Rest just real quick. Just. Get Down for you brought in here. Okay. All right. You can go ole miss. You can go to a party school where coat and bow tie and go out to the Grove. Hi To do all kinds of fun stuff.

A die in the NFL I'm not go to Michigan since that's from Alabama now you know why? My coach went shirtless into that state and recruit players. All those years ago. So that's the way that we might drop our way out of our rich Eisen show radio network on this Thursday program, and we will see our radio well as our NBC s audience. On Friday. And then on Monday when we're streaming on peacock after saying goodbye there, we finish up our audience right here on on on peacock and if you missed US yesterday Chris Brockman, try to troll me by saying that if you're an offensive player, would you rather be coached by Lane Kiffin to go to the pros or Jim Harbaugh you know and captain comeback and all those years of being in the NFL and him being the coach of Andrew Lock from Stanford and being the the man who's been there in the NFL for all those years and taking a team damn near to the Super Bowl podium. Taking Colin Kaepernick being the man who is such vision in Colin, Kaepernick, and saying. Hand these San the reins over to you that guy doesn't know a damn thing. Let's go linkin. Says Chris Brockman. Audience you percent of the audit wind up being how many percents fifty to forty eight. Almost four thousand votes. Well at least harbor won the electoral vote of that whole thing. down. Okay.

Chiefs 26, Bears 3: Arrowhead Pride post-game show

"The touchdown septic welcome to the arrowhead dried postgame show. I hear your hosts pizza lenient. J. Thankfully welcome on in to the Arrowhead Fried postgame show as the chiefs role to a victory twenty six to three Chicago soldier field. The game was never really. Hey question for the second week in a row and you look at this team right now. Defense could not be playing any better. My name is sweeney joined by Nick. Price J Bingley across from me want to get all six nine three zero six or you can call post nine one three five seven six seven six ten. We'd love to hear your thoughts on Sunday night. Football Patrick mahomes spores three touchdowns the chiefs this defense. Polls the bears three points and it's another win. Eleven and four on the season as keeps look toward one more game next week. Jay Your thoughts on the twenty three point win in Chicago just another complete team win for this team. I mean this defense defense is really starting to come together. You have to look last. Three Games given up seven point three points a game. This defense three. The last four teams have scored more than nine point. When did you think that this game a night in the NFL? They worked tenth. But with the Games being played ninth in the NFL in in points against tied for ninth in. This is going to go down. Is Al Michaels said there could be sixth or seventh where the Kansas City chiefs or even fifth in points against per game in the scoring defense is Crazy Eagle back. You know that by week would after seventeen points. The chargers nine points for the raiders. Sixteen points on the road. New England three points against the broncos than three points tonight on the road against the bears. The chiefs seventy one record on the road matches the nineteen sixty six team for the best chiefs team on the road. And that's what you want to see. Can this team travel. Can you take the Mo.. Joe Away from Arrowhead Stadium and went on the road. This become a very good road team. If you could play defense like this in the quarterback Pat Mahomes that matter. The weather is you saw last week against is Denver can go now. The penalties concerned nine penalties. Seventy one yards too many there for the Kansas City chiefs but his defense. What more you can you say? Two hundred thirty four total yards a to the Chicago bears the fact that she stood scored twenty six points and people say well they should have lit up the scoreboard. Well read wasn't going to do this against baggy. And I told you that with the fans boone in Tocacco. That's as Guy Matt Nagy. He's not going to embarrass them but make no mistake about it. This bears defense was thirty. Fell points against billing gave up eighteen points a game game the chiefs theoretically scored eight more points per game than what the Chicago Bears Give up but it's unbelievable what they've done in the last four games Levin one point two five points in the last four if you last three seven point three points a game last three out of four. Nobody scored more than nine points on the Kansas City. Chiefs Defense Vince. They can do this and continue the scoring twenty s lookout this puts the NFL notice. Once this defense is as good. I get bears. Not Great offensively but again again trubisky had something to prove. He had something to prove that he's not that bust white people or colony to just forget about mahomes even mahomes Canada fingers there. After one of the touchdown passes hey. I was picked him so he he was feeling. Trubisky was feeling both these quarterbacks mahomes had that person can live up to the billing which he certainly did another Or became the fast quarterback thirty games to nine thousand yards passing in the seventy five seventy five touchdowns. Unbelievable what he's been able to accomplish Bush in the NFL via that offense to go with this defense lookout NFL. Couple points back to your point. I think it's good that the chiefs are winning on the road because the way this is stacking up now pending a miracle against the Miami Dolphins in Foxborough next week the chiefs will be playing wild card weekend so they'll host host that game but if you assume that the Ravens and the Patriots were able to take care of business you're going beyond the road for the next two weeks trying to get yourself to Miami for the Super Bowl so that is a good sign that you're playing well on the road can make a case that chiefs might play better away from Arrowhead right now which is interesting itself. I thought Terrell suggs looked pretty good. He looked explosive close of he was involved with that sack. You almost should have gotten the sack. That Frank Clark was credited for because he was chasing Mitch. trubisky to the right sideline so good to see. T. sizzles some some committed. And do do what he does. And he looks like he's motivated in an and that's certainly a good thing. There's no doubt about this and wild to say a week. Sixteen here the chiefs defense is it. You always hear the chief stock about Andy Reid. You always hear him talk about the three units offense offense defense and special teams. This is almost non arguable. The chiefs defense is the best unit on the team. The offense is good but the defense right now especially Ashley in this last month. It is a defensive football team and it's amazing when you think about this game and we thought it would be a bigger deal because we thought the bears would be Decem extent. MP Did scored twenty six points in the third best. You've come Outta the halftime locker room. And you're punting. Well I mean you beat the number one scoring defense on the road in New England notes like this offense defense as matching. I'm saying good chiefs defense is is the best unit undertake. What about a two as you look at what this team has done? They're averaging nine point three points for margin of Victory Against Afc West Twenty points a game against the AFC west. That's why the chargers gonNA come in here. In Lyon Egging Kansas City but dominant. They were dominant. This what you want to see from this team. I thought it was good all around team and again they could have scored over thirty points in this game. I think read did Matt Nagy in your favor. But Terrell suggs. What was his impact? He made a couple really nice. Plays in the run game. And I'm talking squirting down the defensive line you know your Guy Pete Pieces missile. He says you're doing safes after every play that he may be shows that flash on it is pass play he comes from the other side of the field and gets in on the tackle. Not Giving away you've heard about the impact. These had bring that spiral notebook in the other players is paying attention to it and taking notes pieces taken eight pages worth of notes his first day here. This guy's here for business. This is a business decision for drill. Sucks I sometimes like to think about games aims and what they mean and what you'll remember maybe five ten years later so I thought the chiefs defense owned the night but the thing that you'll remember from this game always is mahomes after that second touchdown looking at his hands as you mentioned before and the camera caught him counting one two all the way up to ten just just to let everyone know that he knows that nine players went before him in the 2017. NFL draft the bears traded up and number two To pick trubisky. Now Patrick Mahomes. He'll leave it all out on the field. He'll never say that in a press conference but you bet your ass. He knows that he was drafted late. He knows when you're pinch. I'm Jay. That means the entire. NFL shot to get you. Any team can find a way to trade up in the top ten of the NFL draft. If they like you enough the chiefs were the only people who realized that he was this. Good traded up to get him with the buffalo bills and again mahomes letting everybody know. Hey you shouldn't have passed up on me. Well it's the toughest position gauge through the draft. That teams son is. It's not an exact science. Picking that quarterback in the chiefs are lucky. You know they've got the guy that's putting whole. AFC West on notice. They're not going anywhere. And you WanNa talk about serving notice. It's his defense. It's the defense. The changed Kenner the narrative on the national. You saw this. They were getting laughed debt early in the season. They didn't play well even the owner if the Patriots clerk constant has that charges game. It's clearly that game. I think at halftime this defense is became a different defense in in UN Terrell suggs in. This mess makes yes art basel big loss going on the yes. OKAFOR is a big loss. Trust kind of makes you forget about those guys to be quite honest the things that he can do especially said the edge cheese might be better off now then what they were with Okafor Nog not kidding you can already tell that Terrell suggs is going to make an impact. Doc Patrick Mahomes leads. This offense tired Matthew leads the Defense Mahomes of Matthew were interviewed on the field shortly after the game. Patrick you water be playing your best football football as you're heading into the postseason. How would you sass where you guys are right now? Yeah I mean we're we're building. We're going in the right direction. I mean we've done a lot of a lot of great things. These last few weeks offense defense in special teams and a lot of confidence going into this next week and then we're going to keep going and trying to make a run at this thing. What kind of a luxury to have this defense hitting its stride you the Ad Terrell suggs and you know that you can count on this? Yeah it makes. It makes our job a whole lot easier. Those guys are getting the ball back to US quickly. They're getting stopped so we know we just go down there and be who we are that we're going to end up winning with that even that congratulations thank you. Let's turn to Tire Matthew Two straight weeks now where you guys have helped your opponents to the three points now touchdowns a lot have you done. It takes great pride in the process. You know all the days leading up to Game Day You know really part of our group because how committed they were the. We didn't start the season how we wanted to but I feel like right now. The time is right for us to stop playing good ball. And we've been doing that you haven't doing that now. You head to the playoffs. How do you build l.? Don sticking to the process believing in our teammates. Trust in each other You know not not. You know hoping that our offense able to physically you know becoming today's ballgame trying to set a standard trying to set a tempo. We've been doing a good job at congratulations died. Matthew and Patrick Mahomes courtesy of NBC sports. You could tell this team is feeling themselves. They're playing really well at exactly the right time and I think that's huge no question honey. Badgers all over the place. In you just saw his value led the chiefs and tackles with six was playing in the nickel. Use The free safety summit strong safety some just moving around the field. I like the mix of blitzes from the the secondary. Yep as a matter of fact you think about the real and was every ragland. Got A SEC because of that but the bottom line is they were blitzing in you. Bring in the heat and Trubisky last last week after the packers game was questioning matinee. You know he's questioning. You know the with the pressure that the Green Bay packers put on. Why not run more screens? What draws basically basically he he gave the chiefs and all of the game plan we put pressure just like the packers? Do what do you do. Screens Draws Jason Ready for that stuff. They had a little a bit of effect but again two hundred thirty four total yards from the bears is the dominant what you do. Is You keep teams down the national football league so many games can go either way as you clearly see every week seen the scores the NFL. Things don't make sense like the jets beating the steelers but you keep a bad team down. That's what the chiefs have been doing lately. They would take in these teams. They should role in they. Roll this what they're doing the US one thing what they're doing. I know at the bears not dominant team. The weeds expected but a five hundred team coming in the night in the national football league with the first round quarterback and pretty good defense not as good a defense that they had victory NGO last year Chuck Pagano there now knows a little bit about football and he was there mahomes. I'm just simply dominant in this game chasing the running for right at one hundred yards hundred six yards of offense with this. You know running back by committee Shawn McCoy sitting out. It was clearly clearly the Damian Williams show tonight sixteen carries for sixty five yards. And of course what he did in the past game as well. But this Damian Williams running game and Spencer where cattle that'd be an closer big body. Spencer wears he reliable type. He's not the breakaway type at this point. But he's the guy that finds himself open in could do a little bit. He's not. He's not the same Spencer where that we saw a couple years ago. Darwin Thomson Little Jitterbug. But that's the question. I didn't think that Darwin Thomson would sit. I didn't I didn't I thought he earned more playing longtime and I thought if anybody sat this game it would be less Shawn McCoy simply because Darwin Thomson. His proof is worth even more than the Shawn Mccoy and he makes an impact on special teams. James is our own. Ken Swanson alluded to on the pre game. Show and the chiefs are telling you what they feel about the Damian Williams because as soon as he was healthy again he is right back to carrying during the ball sixteen times of course cheese ran a little bit more in this game. As they had a sizable lead for most of the game. But Damian Williams right back in that mix we want to hear from you six nine three zero six. That's the text line and you can also call us nine one three five seven six seven six ten one more thing pete from NFL research I mentioned the KC he given nine point six points per game since week. Eleven free points in consecutive games his first time at three points or fewer and consecutive games under head coach any the reasons career. Listen Good Ones Jim. Johnson there in Philadelphia but it is clear never head back to back games with three points or less. That's pretty damn significant. Yeah and you really the Credit Steve Spagnolo and I think Brett. Vh deserves some credit. We give him a lot of crap. When it comes to Sammy Watkins? And how that has sort of panned out here but bringing entire Matthew and Frank Clark has made the difference too Clark a little bit longer tire and Matthews playing like one of the better defensive trades. This class has is been way better than than the previous one. Let's go out to the phone lines and hear what you have to say about. This wind start with Batman in Lawrence. Would you think man. Ah You know I just wanted to say merry Christmas. You're you're the iconic sport station that we've ever had and I'm telling I usually cover everything you've seen you in particular are just out opt to chain as far as tonight I'm just telling you that uh-huh Patrick mahomes tearing. He's they must have strong to everybody on the field. I mean he was all he said everybody was hot are running game was perfectly. We had time of possession Chelsea was dominant. We anything that we we wanted to do we do it. The thing of it is right now as I said you know this is all bad Karma and it's supposed to be. It's the fiftieth anniversary of the old team. They used to win with all those all all pros and everything And Hall of Famers as to win twenty three to seven things like that just like this team right on through there and when they take their district just because so you guys are the best and you get to see this. Thanks thanks all right. Thank you Batman Patrick. MAHOMES ended up throwing his seven different receivers including your guy. I Jay the bell dozer the bills are about that. Builders against vaction forty one yards receiving the last game he talks about the running game for the chiefs. It was it was efficient. Not It was great but it was efficient. Today's chiefs average three point seven yards per carry the bears run defense actually Really their strength to be honest with you. The bears Given up right about the three point eight yards per carry this year the six best run defense in the NFL so chiefs get three point. Seven bears give up three point eight so right there hand hand in hand with what the bears were doing. The bears rushing the football up. Four point six yards per carry that went up of course with the Nice Sixteen yard run by Cordeiro Patterson than the normal wide receiver and kick returner running but Chicago. Dead run the ball very well. This your manufactures three yards a carry. So they were above that quite a bit above that one point six yards above there. But I see some fine with that teacher fine with with any kind of running the clock. Anything eighty yards is good for them. They weren't in the time of possession. I mean this is what we're starting to see. Here's here's the thing with the chiefs. The one thing about this and what I really like about this defense is look at where the chiefs are really good defensively third down percentage seven the NFL just thirty five percent They're given up on third downs. Why is this important is because it puts Pat Mahomes back on the field? The chiefs headed for thirty three minutes. Twenty four seconds. The Bears Twenty six minutes thirty basic seconds. Why is this different kind of from last year? Wise is different from when the chiefs played the colts. The Texans these teams that beat him. Their goal is to keep Patrick. Mahomes on the sideline or like the Patriots Richard last year. Nancy title game but the down position. Possession they're getting off the field in her giving Pat Mahomes more opportunities to score points. I'm sorry did you put the fifteen out there and you keep getting extra drives. Guess what he's going to put points on the board and on offense Pat Mahomes came in this fourth in the NFL. Forty six percent on third down conversions and today six of eleven on six of eleven on third down so they're better than fifty percent on third down conversions. They offensively so they're doing well on moving the chains on third down those first downs and defensively. They're doing jab getting off the field on third down which is crucial and Patrick Mahomes. And this this offense again I they had a good game. They were efficient in the first half. They scored on every single possession. But you're seeing third down in eighteen yards or third down and more than that all year long eighteen plus. I think Patrick Mahomes nine of ten on that. There is no down in distance no distance on third down that that feels like the chiefs can't pick it up and that's really hard because a lot of defense is what they'll do is they'll guard the line and and try to rush you up front. And the chiefs just fine time meantime again ways to convert on third and long according to twitter Mahomes as five conversions on third or fourth down eighteen plus yards to go nowhere. The quarterback has more than two. He's sitting there with rabbi them. It's also a Travis Kelsey by the way same thing with him five hundred th career reception it is nineteen ninety fifth career game becomes. The fastest is tied in. NFL history to reach five. Hundred career. Receptions Terry Kill Kinda. The same situation is far as the fastest four thousand yards for the Kansas City chiefs. So just in. Here's in Bucker makes that fifty six yarder Career long there is set records. That's what they're doing this group of players they have just setting those records. It's unbelievable what they've done. Let's keep going with the phone line. Nine one three five seven six seven six ten or pal Dan. And what's going on Dan. Complete dominance performed sound like when any did. Yeah he made a bounce attack with the running game Ryan again offense but uh Mos- that sound Kelsey. I'm how about that defense. My God guys right now. We're a championship winning defense. Now let's take charge your stick yourself guys thanks. Thanks for the call Dan. Let's keep it moving with Chester Chester. What's going on? Yes Sir Joe. I guess winning Christmas seizing each way and is a gift. This is official official day for my take home up about fishing day birthday. Happy Birthday. Just finally done this month. Same Birthday as my mother. Happy Birthday mom to make it a birthday off with just one official birthday. You've been doing this for a while. Oh Yeah We got you know I'm GonNa have got more wins on the road that we do at home we eleven and four thankful that we gave the coast some that he hadn't ahead in his career. That's back to back. Trees that Defense Character Kim street productive of being productively agitation in attitude and attitude in any kind of agitation telling everybody we ready for the playoffs we force in the Boston Patriots to win out. You know he said well we need better win out in different things because hey we ready for the playoffs. Iron sharpens iron. We we you know that. They update cited the confidence they come from results. Impact players make impact place looking forward to thanks. Do you have not seen on offense. Defense and special special teams also quarters all three phases. We're ready you know and see what the angle b but then the collie holly is. Let no man take your Crown Chester up and don't get down because at that time and I tell our time all right now God blessed Merry Christmas Hsa with me the agitation. The winning machine keeps the what keeps the close clean about gesture for him. I mean we let them go. The sermon was over. We Managed Boston Patriots. You went old school on us. The Patriots again. Play the dolphins next week and the chiefs could use some help and who knows I mean you look at this dolphins bengals game. They played the same times chief. That's one of those scoreboard watching games an NFL does it. On purpose of the teams have to play their best glares players Ryan Fitzpatrick in the game against the bengals today. Thirty one of fifty two for four hundred nineteen yards four touchdowns and an interception so Ryan Fitzpatrick's coming off a good game baby you never know in the NFL. There have been these random games too. I mean you think about the Miami Miracle That was down in south beach but the the dolphins occasionally we will beat the New England patriots. You never know especially in south beach take care of it. Yeah this one's in Foxborough. Next week they take you know. Take care of your your own business. You never know what can happen in their head. Coach the former persistent Last year they're GONNA want that game for Bill Belichick. Oh by the way that this stat Ontario kilos wanting terry killed four thousand yards receiving for his career fastest. She's he's player to reach four thousand in just fifty games to go to tailor. The Great Otis Taylor should be in canton. Notice Taylor fifty nine games but that that's impressive. Live considering what Era Otis Taylor played in. I mean seriously. That's ridiculous Rotas Taylor again. Yeah probably deserves to deserves to be see. They're given you're right the error that the Patriots Patriots are two and two in their last four against the Patriots. Both those winning book those winds in Miami and The last time they wouldn't New England old boy boy is It's been a while been awhile couple of comments from the IT's all in two thousand eight a couple comments from the text line. Six nine three zero six from the five seven three Damian Williams looked good at times but it really seems like. He's half a step slow to get really get that cutback can't hit the crease. Truth of the matter is the chiefs. Don't have that Kareem Hunt type of running back on their roster right now you're gonNa have to maybe get that. Ah whether it be by the draft or by making some an acquisition. It's tough to really get Running back of that cow will have the crease to this'll be Jamaal Charles special. Just take the smallest increases in. He would exploited in big time yardage. Even worse. Fits of line wasn't really run blocking as well. He made him look good. Sherry was new. Ski was starting Jordan today at left guard instead of Andrew Wylie. I think he looked good where they really had the problem with the bears who is thirty one sacks Beers Clinton AC though today how did they did. They moved him around. Met Gay Fisher fits any Schwartz. Mitch sits as well clue. Mac really was the dominant guy in the defense very hard to figure out where he was going to be mahomes several times shoes in the strength step into the pocket. Clo- Matt had some obvious sex there but didn't get them because mccomb the homes is so good at that perfect vision looking seaward guys are made. It's really one of the strengths in the pocket but he eludes a lot of that. He did a lot more sex. She should give up a lot more sex right now. They don't give up a ton twenty-seventh in the NFL NFL. When we come in tonight given up for the Kansas City chiefs in a big part of the way he moves around in the pocket makes guys miss? It does a little things too you. I mean you saw him. Today he was running around a little bit. I don't know if the offensive line was doing as good a job at at the beginning of this game they seemed to improve as it went along long. And you see the little things from Homs where frequently now you'll get free plays or as you saw tonight early. On in this game he takes that roughing the passer so you can tell that there was little acting involved. And she's GonNa chiefs get a new set it down but that's good. I mean I'm not saying that's bad thing I think. That's that's a good thing. He's he's playing smart. And if you get a little shove why not try to Chur. Draw flag that the rest of the throne enough flags anyway. You might as well retires some quarterbacks treatment when I'm home mahomes Watson and Jackson probably one of the guys get the calls eighties done from the eight one. Six game felt like child's play. Chicago definitely didn't show up. We did we were supposed to do. And that's the great thing. I think. This is the second week in a row. That really felt like wire-to-wire that she were the clear better team and Kenton. I talked about this on the pre-game where games earlier in the season that you've thought okay. The cheese should dominate these football games. They ended up being better game than they should have. This is two weeks in a row. Now where you came in and cheese were the better team and they showed it immediately was never a question. You had von Miller nearly crying at the podium last game this game you have mahomes. Who's able all to kind of remind everyone that he should have been a higher pick? You'll love it. You love it if you're a cheese fan and it's coming at the right time week sixteen as you head into the playoffs it's just the NFL man. Look at these scores and I get it. They're a bad Ed team the bears but you don't want bad teams step up and they play well at times. Chicago bears team last year. We went twelve and four. They won the division last year. But you gotTa have consistency it. You know what team that kind of drives me nuts. was that the way that they play. You gotTA appreciate that. She's more when you see this. The Rams would you're goth right. Yeah he was going to be the guy you you look at the rams and the way. They're struggling. They had their quarterback they went to the Super Bowl. It's got to be able to parlay that year in and year out anything about the situation. The chiefs are sitting with Patrick. uh-huh yeah the rams went to the Super Bowl. What teams rather be with me? The rams you know flashy everybody likes Sean mcvay Going tried and true like Andy. Reid in Pat Mahomes. They didn't get to the Super Bowl. Could've real close without before being offsides. which will there be that team or the cheese because right now? They're searching for answers. They're talking about Donovan. Brigham Todd Gurley Back Gary Trademark speeder Peter's but cheeser just in a difference situation. They're taking advantage of quarterback and I think the rams won despite their quarterback in the chiefs won because of their quarterback. I think there's fans out there too and you get to this point. Where the trajectory chiefs around you start to get frustrated with Andy Reid and and losing in the playoffs? But you're right when you cite those teams the rams and you're seeing tonight with Matt Nagy. The bears darlings of Chicago last year. Matt Nagy was the coach of the a year. They're about to go seven and nine eight In this season you never know so the fact that Andy Reid has come here in two thousand thirteen and the chiefs of made the playoffs every year. They've had a winning record every single year they. They missed the playoffs the one year so all the years except for the one year. Andy Reid is that a winning record record each year. It's just so hard to do in the NFL consistently. I understand the playoff complaints. I understand sometimes the clock management but this is why he's one of the greatest greatest coaches in. NFL history coach. Mike Tomlin things through finance jobs at the bottom line is is the steelers are better jets. And I don't care about Mason. Rudolph Duck Hodgson. It doesn't matter their team than your percent. They lose sixteen or ten on the road. They have everything to play for. Jets are not a good team in there. The steelers go to the jets with playoff hopes hopes on the line in lose by six points. Yes the chiefs not a lot to play for the grand scheme of things go to Chicago in pace the bears. This is just. What good teams do? They go the road and beat them down like the chiefs today. steelers shame on you for that performance was terrible. Take a couple more more calls nine one three five seven six seven six. It's ten Goto Danny and peavey. What's going on Danny? Yeah Hey guys. Thanks for mentioning the rams. I think it's worth mentioning you know if you look at the rams. They're going to have sixty percent of their cap cap dedicated to five players over the next four years and then I can have a first round pick until twenty twenty two. I think it's worth calling out some of the discipline that we've that we've exerted in free agency and just otherwise in advance a the trade deadline and y you know. I think that puts a structurally in a better situation. Russian that than for example. The Rams one thing I want to mention though is I I really think. Frank Clark's You know some of the criticism that he faced early. This year really needs to be in the rear view mirror. He was brought in kind of expectation of nine sack guy. He he had six going into today. He's got seven after the game and and arguably even said he was playing at twenty percent of his capacity the first handful of games. You probably shouldn't have even been playing than he. You had the flu game. You know you look at someone like the Ford who who's not. WHO's while he was productive? He's not even playing now. I think we had injury concerns all along. I think this duty dudes lost twenty pounds ban. Yeah absolutely and so I I just I really think that. He faced a lot of criticism from the kingdom early on and and and I really think that that needs to be. You know kind of put behind us the the the question that I do WanNa ask a you know of of you guys though if we look at the you know the running back committee we have. What do you even think Foolish Sean ads after at at this stage in the game you know I know that there was you know if you listen to kind of the the announcers? They would say that he was being just rested. I'm not even sure that's the case you know. I think I kind of you Damian. Darwinism down back and Spencer wears substantially better at at just the overall eggs blocking capabilities. You know their concern around with Sean. I is ability to kind of hold onto the ball. He's a little bit slower than used to be. You know kind of you. Expect him to be brought back and kind of integrated upgraded. Here's the thing. Here's the thing. Show mcquaid I do think at his age. They're going to keep the facts. McCoy's got four hundred. Sixty five yards rushing four point six yard average coach Damian Williams. And it's one hundred one carries Damian Williams eighty three three. Oh nine for three point. Seven yard average. Show McQueen's just a better runner of the football football than Damian Williams. Now the argument is who does better in the passing game is a little Shawn McCoy. chiefs are always going to be a pass. I can't Damian Williams said some fleshy kitchen he just has his twenty three catches tonight for one hundred fifty six yards six point. Eight per unless Shawn McCoy who has been a good receiver over in his career. But Damian Williams quickness finds a way to get open but Shawn McCoy this year twenty eight catches one hundred eighty one yards six point five yards. That's it's nearly identical for how they are out of the Backfield as pests catchers it comes down the blocking and hold the football right and then the reason Darwin Thomson is in the mix is when you don't need need McCoy as much on offense. He's a better runner doesn't relate special teams but obviously the chiefs don't feel that way. I mean they took him out of the lineup on a on a game they. They need to win. Dan has protection. Catch the football run any reads order. I think it's the right call Shawn McCoy to me. He's Nice to have in the lineup. But it would you can sort of do it with these other guys. And and win the football game Damian Williams seems to be there darling. Anytime he's healthy doesn't matter how many games he misses doesn't matter what he's out with so on and so forth as soon as he's healthy he's back to being the guy and the way the trust is sorta gone here. I think you're seeing as they trust Damian. The most they trust Spencer where the second most and then. It's either Darwin or Leshan McCoy and then Darwin gets the nod because of the teams. I think what it comes down to it though I've expensive where gets the ultimate truth. I think if it's a big down in the playoffs which directions Andy Reid going Spencer. where I guess it just depends on the down and distance if it's fourth and five for example I bet you they go Damian Amien? If it's four thousand two matters to any read you know always being there. I think that does matter to them. It's that circle of trust in which guy can get in it in which guy it gets out of a deer Williams before the injury had gotten into it. Yeah he had gotten it circle. Trust me read respected the way that the guy worked his story in the NFL and drafted being played. Just always grinding. Always be in that guy. He's a nickel Shawn McCoy as clearly not at circle dress. I think Darwin Thompson is third. Starting to tiptoe around it Spencer. Where is in it? I don't think Dean Williams Williams's in it I think he's on the outside. Like Garwin Thomson with one foot in a circle but not all the way in it the second point the call was about Frank Clark and some of the criticisms he faced early on and I agree it should be in the rear view mirror. The reason that those were happening if you remember how this went the chiefs didn't reveal that he was playing injured. We didn't know ooh that until week. Seven week eight. So that's why everyone kind of felt. Oh this is a healthy frank. Clarke's playing as well. You only found out about the injuries and everything thing that was going on with the neck and the nerves later on in the seasons. That's why I think. He faced a little bit of that criticism. Nine one three five seven six seven seven six ten. Let's go to Tony in Shawny. Tony what you think of the game. Oh I thought it was just wonderful and you know just from a pure spectators perspective. It's nice to see this team. Finally playing complementary football You know for the past couple years It it's it's been one of those things that I get so excited to see the offense on the field and then put my head between my legs with a pillow over my head when the defense is on the field but that hasn't been the case this year and going into January. I just feel so much better having defense. That not only Are you are you. Can you think can they make third down conversion but they can make a play in. There's just something about that in terms of the the offense that has to give them confidence to so i. I'm really excited coming January. I know that we're GONNA have to go on the road but I'm much more confident in terms of making a deep run this year than last year and one of the things I know. The previous caller talks about the rear view mirror The Rear View Mirror for me is goodbye. Bob Set me and I love to see how the cohesion of the defense is coming together. And it's it's I don't care about the teams who've been playing and people can commit pick that Oh missing great offense of teams. They're doing this against. But I see a whole level of confidence in terms of the team as a collective unit. Tony you sound like longtime fan. This is the best cheese teams win most complete since win in your opinion. Well I don't know what you know you go back to early two thousands and It was the same kind of thing with the. You know the no defense. Yeah no defense and then you go back to the late nineties where you you know you can shut anybody down. Play play You know ground and pound but you get to the play offs and nobody can outscore you pretty easily. I just kind of Tony. We've thought about that when you think about complete teams and I'll say this I don't know people pointing any five cheese. Sometimes Ninety seven and ninety five chiefs were twelfth in the NFL. And points for your first in points against see this number one scoring defense and twelve. Best offense I'd go back to nineteen ninety seven to be honest with you. Chiefs were fifth in the NFL scoring off. I scoring defense. That was a complete football team. Even though you really Dan the quarterback Marty Schottenheimer get extremely conservative in the playoffs but pound for pound. The team was scoring over twenty twenty three points a game and they were given up just over fourteen and a half points a game so fifth in total offense first in total defense. It's a score of six. When you add these two things together the thing with the chiefs these are both top ten units top ten off? Its Top ten scoring defense. This is when you make a run towards the postseason to deepen the postseason if not the super rable when you can combine this people forget the rams the ninety nine rams. They think it's all office. They were one in scoring offense but you know what they were fourth in scoring defense he was pretty get four scoring defense. One People Forget. How good that defense was that year with? Kurt Warner Greatest. Show on turf all that. Then you had to play defense. I think a lot of times too in the NFL NFL. It isn't about who's the better team. It's who's playing the best football once the tournament starts and you have a situation here where the chiefs look good with every unit and they're playing their best football at the end of the season. There are just so many years here in the Andy Reid era where you're limping into the playoffs. You're back tacking into the playoffs. It takes a miraculous ten game winning streak into the playoffs. And then you get shocked. The chiefs are one of the better teams in the AFC. And they're playing their best football right now. How'd you the play them? Anybody even the Ravens team going man being to last through time. Here's the thing I heard. I heard Matt Cassel. WHO's on NFL network former chiefs quarterback? Who's WHO's he's he's been on six teams that are in the playoffs to be honest with you and he talked about how the ravens were different said? The other chiefs beat the Ravens. But you know what the Ravens were. Different me ask you this Pete. How different the chiefs? We consider all day and talk about the race. Doug Lamar Jackson. He was still good back. Then people talk about the Ravens being a better team when the chiefs face them. Is this not a better chief chief team that faced the ravens even percent is and the chiefs defense. You could make an argument right now that they're among the best units in the NFL and that's incredible radical. That say we have. There's there's no part of us. Oh coming into this year. That would ever think we'd be saying that anything. You have to go to Baltimore seven one on the road. The first time they've done that since nineteen sixty six. Yes the Ravens are better. You know what the chiefs are better as well so both these football teams are better. Ah I get tired of hearing how the Ravens are just so much better since early on the browns pasted them the chiefs beat him. You name it. This chief team is completely different as well. So let's give credit to this team and I think they still have things in their pocket. tyreek hill wasn't even a part of that. Hardiman we leave a coal knows. What's going on with Hardman? I I do get the feeling that there's there's some kind of package some kind of reason that we haven't really seen a lot of McColl quite yet because it's really good with the ball in his hands and I just tend to think. There's something some kind of wrinkle that Andy Reid debut in the post season. If you WANNA get involved you should six nine three zero six at the text line or you can call nine one three five seven six seven six tenths go out to double J W J. What'd you think of the game? Hey I thought it was a great game tonight. program for the chiefs Offi phases offense defense and special teams. I tell you what this defense is playing out right now. I trust them and and no one wants to say so Right now especially. The playoffs won the hottest team right now and going on anybody on the Patriots Even knowing that scares me at this moment right now and fall since his theory dangerous everyone knows about offense Nothing what this defense is spent went. Hey let's go let's go. Dolphins is sweeping up the Patriots up the chiefs out. That's as in vain but it's magic there. You go double Jay rooting for the dolphins cakes. Big Win over the bengals. Yeah they'll be feeling good. You know that Fitzpatrick Turk is GonNa want to beat the Patriots. You never know you never do know in the NFL you you see these results. Sometimes raiders all of a sudden are still involved in the playoff picture. They can finish eight thirty one point. Losses to the for the raiders. Neither still floundering around speaking of next week. Todd and Omaha has something to talk about regarding the chiefs and whether or not. They should play their starters next week. Yeah great great game tonight guys Fantastic Andy Reed's play on the past two weeks. I've been phenomenal. I think I mean coming from earlier in the season I mean that's great. I think he knows he will. But I'll say this. That was the big talk. This week was Nagy. No one the offense but he knew the Alex Smith offense with cheese. He didn't know about Pat Mahomes. Go him no. That's that's a great point. I was just curious here is what do you guys think about the starters for next week. Do you think we should sit them or do you think we should Go Go for it. I mean I don't I don't know I don't know what we should do. The starters need to play late again because as we're saying you never know what's GonNa Happen in the NFL and my thing too is. This is twenty nineteen you can keep track of the dolphins and patriots. It's game it's almost twenty twenty P if it becomes a situation thank you Jay for the counter update if it becomes a situation where the dolphins are getting blown out out of the water. Say It's in the second quarter or in the third quarter. Then I think at that point you say all right you know we we. We succumb to whatever we put in. The backups backups. Also to you got to remember this though as well the chiefs WanNa keep pace with Texans so you gotta be having I in the Texas cheese to win their game to keep their number three seed. I think you really WanNa play where the six seat is as opposed to facing the buffalo bills. We're going to be five so I think he's still have to put the stars at the scoreboard watching find out and by the fourth fourth quarter. Make a decision on what you WANNA do. But here's the thing I mean it'd be nice the chiefs if they don't get that biweekly. The Patriots Take Your Business. We'll get by. I think that by was important. We eighty read eighteen and three after the bye. But you're GONNA have that. You have the manufacturer rest because you're going to be going straight into the playoffs so manufacturer but as Pete says I you know you gotta keep keep your mind that the L. things happen in the national football league in. You never know what's going to happen in the Houston Texans. The Kansas City chiefs is far as that three seed climbing getting net to seat for the New England patriots. You know it's. It's a wounded football team. They do have a coach in Bryant Florez. There was with doing patriots. Yes Bill Takes Care Service assistance. Just like Andy Reid does but it does happen over once in a while they step up and beat a member. Josh mcdaniels DENVER. It does happen but for the Houston. Houston Texans will say the chiefs in the blues into the chargers. Houston Texans are your third seed chiefs go to the four seed right and they would host the buffalo bills and not to say that the bills would necessarily beat the chiefs. I just think better road to the Super Bowl would be not having to face the bills facing whoever that six seed may be bill played the FBI the steelers. Titans Josh Allen didn't look great at times but there were times when he did and that defense is pretty good. I I just think you want to avoid the bills. I know there's going to be a lot of nightmares. If the titans end up in that succeed which is feasible. The raiders could end up in the sixth seed which is feasible. Play the raiders the AFC West could be she's raiders matchup of certain things fall next week We are going to take a quick break here when we come back it'll be. AP A sounds of the game. And you'll get to hear from the chiefs head coach. Stay with us on the Arrowhead Pride postgame show talk post game show. The Arrowhead tried tried post game show. Here's Pete Sweeney and Jape inkling. Welcome back into the Arrowhead. Pride postgame show the Chiefs Win Twenty six to three three eight convincing win on Sunday night football right now it's time for. AP Sounds of the game. The three wind the white ware. Or we're in that direction. New has been gone. The way he's GonNa keep it he's GonNa take zone touchdown Loyal boy. We are a long way from October seventeenth. When he's lying on the ground in Denver it looks like the season is over to running in for a touchdown here at the end of December? Six seconds and a first and goal mahomes throws. That'll be caught an easy touchdown travis tells. The driver sustained stain because of the running into the kicker penalty on a fourth down and four. And they go where they just haven't had an answer for batting third throws his third again. It's going to be a touchdown Damian Williams the end zone bears cannot get off the field on on third down three total touchdowns for the chiefs quarterback on the night Jay. No question made his look fresh. I like the fact they showed Denver. You know well the knee and getting pulled back and it just signals renegade. This guy's a tough guy like all the things that you could say about Pat Mahomes. Just tough guy makes them. Chris passes the obvious just impressive. Where the in the pocket you know evading Khalil Mack? He just said neck. You know it's tough to bring him down. It always kind of got that elway little stuff in you. You know they bring down the careful. I'll see what I wanted. I mean look at look at his numbers compared to compare Patrick Mahomes to John. I'm just saying in the pocket when guys come through. He's got that kind of get off type you know. Get off me. Tie Blink off. Let him play the chiefs win. Their fifth game came in a row. And that is good news for Andy Reid who spoke to the media after the game so as far as the injuries go spencer. Wire you're in Brooklyn for several. They tweet their shoulders. Both themselve. We'll just say I'll go so they both played and kept going but other than that. We came out came. came out healthy. I'm proud about the job that he's done with this team and As a process. So he's he's going going about doing it the right way. And he's been unfortunate legacy injuries and and that's cost. It cost him a little bit but other than that. He's done. Nice Chama proud of our guys in our coaches for the job they did. This team hasn't been beat by more than really Eight points I think it's eight other last night game seven in the last eight years. Something like that. It's a which is quite a feat for our guys is to rally it up at this time of the year and do what they did tyreek hill and and Kells had a nice day Catching the ball. Patrick obviously had a nice day throwing it he a couple. TD's in there. Maybe I'm most proud of the job. We did in the red zone. We we came off a game that we were just okay and you were able to put it down there Time of possession was in our favor. Defense was unbelievable. I thought I expects that had a great game plan and the guys leaving it. So you're getting the speed and accurate tackling with this which just tough and then a couple fourth-down stops that were with? Those are tough to do in this league and we're able to bear down with that. It was great to have sucks. Join US trump. Nice job today first. Couple of times in he got pressures on the quarterback and that's a nice mix For Guys Probably Future Hall of Famer here you know. So we're excited have on board But biker with a fifty six yard fill go there body Charleston him. So we've felt like he he's got from. This is Dave Tobe. They felt he was good from the forty. And so right there we're close but it He drilled that thing and probably a little bit room there to spare so it was good for him to get that all team win. A proud of the guys is a crazy week Christmas coming up but we wish everybody had merry Christmas. Happy Holidays and we've got to get back to the grinder right when we land gotta how to get things going here for this coming game against charter. So that time you're listening to chiefs head coach. Andy Reid courtesy of spectrum sports on six sports radio the power for you to be easily first. Tonight's performance but no one knows that the team could you know let itself down you can still want to try to get the number of the number to save but how a person you defensively two weeks in a row. The team was only given up three points. Is this what you what you envision. You expect visuals. With deep. Terrell added to the mix just makes diesel debit special. Yeah so Well it's hard to predict the future in this business. spags a heck of a coach and say you know his production from past Jobs and I've had in a long term relationship here with the guys I've known for quite a few years and understand the scheme that he has and was pretty solid scheme so it's just a matter of the players players by an intuitive and and then him being able to add to it every week and and that's a compliment of both spags as coaches and the players for trust in it they start off great But he was able to keep padden a bit here and there Because you guys work Ethic Billy Study Study and learn on them bred for guys went down. We've lost to defensive ends. Brought went out and did his thing and bringing people in so take my hats off to him and his staff third talked about eight more emphasis to get that donkey. It's not necessarily I mean we're we're always looking at score there but a good. I am not going to say it was was extra emphasis but because we always emphasize the red zone but I thought her execution was good. They're thus listen if we get it That's great if we don't Won't be ready for that too so we don't know you know it's not in in our hands necessarily there so you know we'll whatever we get beer when you're in the dance. I you got to be ready to dance. And you gotTa do it. Well chiefs head coach. Andy Reid courtesy of spectrum sports. Let's continue playing against the chargers. Actual what would you say coast to the day. Mardi out there already in that playoff motor Arina Kelly following the break Yeah I'm listening. We got finished the season. And then then we'll get into that but You know they're confident one another which I appreciate his head coach each and That that's the most important thing at this time of the year for where we're sitting we've got finished take care of business and And we know the chargers command explosive football team so we understand that so and they're well coached so make sure that Tom Thing we just try and get ready to play against that. He knows you don't have while I was expecting anything anything and everything so Because I figured he'd bring it all out and He brought a few things. So but we've prepared for that. It's it's a little different you know when you're playing you guys. What are your eyes on Once once a kickoff takes place you're are you going it's It's the game is don't get too far off the game play sheet so I'm not looking at call the plays and he's not looking at me to call the plays a Just we roll and then we love each other up afterwards but for those couple hours. We're GONNA try to beat each other up a little bit. It would seem to be cut fired up to play as this particular overnight. Strapping did you sense. Everything turned away even tonight. This game was a little boy. Things go under the drafter crazy. And who knows what who said. What so? I noticed that he was all that fired up for now but I mean other than have an the opportunity play he gets Let me put it that. He gets fired up every week. So I don't want a slight add but I didn't notice an extra amount of being entire up if you can measure that. Let's finish up with the chiefs head coach courtesy of spectrum. Sports right here on six sports radio where he said it is. This is kind of a game is Kennedy's baseline digitally special. Yeah I you know I think it was a good solid performance He has some unbelievable throws mixed there. A lot of guys can do so. He showed that part of his game. we show the toughness part with fifty. Two is bearing down on you. He hung in there and his job against him. But he's GonNa make we know. Oh Him we. We've had to go against them. Laugh years we know explosive is but you know he. He hung in there and they tougher that so but I thought it was overall a good job. Now listen you get the next question just because that jacket looking back on to now complete games I think listen the last couple of weeks I felt like. We've we've done that matched up until the last three weeks. I've been impressed with the group Everybody contributing and Stan aggressive and making plays and you know I. I can't say enough about the growth growth our defense and we're staying consistent and it was nice to get the run game going a little bit today and I think that helps last last year oliver game just digging waves to get back in there sees the way he wrote provides a spark just the way. Yeah Listen He. He didn't nice job. I mean all kinds of room for improvement. He knows that just getting his time and back in Auburn Barrett in the last couple of weeks his health for one stepping pocket not Tristan Review. Those big plays tonight. We had an awful long stepping up into the well. When you play good defense you're GONNA have to move a little bit sometime so it's a I thought he did a nice job when he had to move moving When he had to win? Yeah what do you need to step up. I thought he did a good job there. I thought overall it was pretty performance rugged performance actually the head coach. Andy Reid in Chicago. Courtesy of spectrum. Sports look what are the impressive things. Pete is Andy. Reid talked about in the beginning. Is Chicago Chicago now. They're close losses. I mean he's you'll get these point seven three eleven one eight ten and eight. We're their losses seven losses coming tonight. And she's she's made by twenty three right. That's six point eight margin of victory against the bears this year so they played within a score with who they've played and the chiefs go out there and win by twenty three on the roads. What you want about the bears? They've been playing close but they they give up eighteen point three game they score eighteen point one. I mean they're right there at eighteen points. A game scored board in eighteen points. A game given up. It's a very average football team but the bottom line is the chiefs went there and took care of business again. Look at her. They're playing look at some of the defenses cheese. I've been playing when they play the chargers Mexico City those the fifth rated defense in the NFL. You play the Patriots Number One scoring defense in the NFL in tonight. You play the number three scoring defense in in the NFL. So one three and five scoring defense. You played in the stretch since the bye week. So let's put it in perspective. We expect in the offense to score thirty or forty points in the game again. Twenty three points is the biggest margin of victory against the Chicago bears. This year happened on their turf when they've been playing better football colleen Cain of the Chicago. Tribune said Eddie Jackson in Khalil. Mack both used the word embarrassing to describe the bear's loss to the chiefs tonight soon. So Unhappy Campers in Chicago Locker Room. When I I listened to that Andy Reid I think the big takeaway from me were was some of the questions about next week where the chiefs do plan On playing to win against the La chargers then to an as you heard they are willing and ready for any kind of scenario whether it be having to play on wild discard weekend at Arrowhead stadium or if something falls their way. The dolphins are able to get this win. Having a bye week. They'll be ready for either either. Scenario would your you're seventy one and your defense is playing its plan and you have leagues. MVP You really don't care repeat you play and Pluto. You play Mars. You Plan Road Games. You want him to plan another planet US news one play. Why do I will say this? Patrick Mahomes is playing out of this world. If they get your calls in nine one three five seven six seven six ten. Let's go to butch in Seattle. I know you're fired up after that. Game which channel men. How about those cheeks? Yeah you're right. I am fired up about that one. I mean any just again. This is the progression of what we thought we were going to see all fees. Isn't that right gentleman. I mean we knew it was going to get to this point. Didn't we we knew we get to a point where we the best defense in the league. On Sunday night football we go out there and smoke them right. Yeah that kind of confidence. I don't know about you but I did. And it was great to see it all come together at once. Andy's Andy's play calling the ability to run the ball consistently and how here's him. bucker knocking on a fifty six yard and all three bays very comfortable. What we're doing but what I was most surprised about Patrick mahomes holding up those ten fingers there he buys into the narratives just like a fan? You showing line pay rent base. He's ten fingers. How many years you're going to spend staying up at night wishing you? It drafted me. We lose your job out. There was one finger to be honest with you. How in thank you so much really appreciate it all all in all year? I think both John Thank you so much for. Let me express my thought about my favorite Jay. Thanks Very Kris van. Pete mentioned about Spencer wearing the shoulder. Right so you're wondering at the in there you don't see Damian Williams. I'm not so sure it's been aware is not the closer for this team head. You've seen him more than shoulder yet. Seemed like that was as trusted guy. Eddie I hate to use the term. But he he is will injure opponent prone he he does he does get injured somewhat similar question. Why so sean on this team? That's why he's on his team. Aim for depth. Leshan McCoy did face a terrible ankle injury. Midway through the season eight he managed to play through it. I- Andy Reid did make a Jersey earthy man. You don't want that thing. Being tugged down. You know I can understand that. Let's go to Mj. In case say what's on your mind. I'm Jay how we doing. Hey doing good defense. Reclaim what do you say. Gentlemen and just Pete I mean he he wants to know you know house Salita. Doing the leaders are right now. No go ahead. I'm Jay. I think the defense is playing at the right time. That's what you get on the dance. You gotta be able to dance. So we'll play. I'm a little bit more hair on our nuggets. I'm looking at some ferber out on that Dylan I'm going there Sunday. The employees the last home game. We're going to beat the rivers. Make him look look like a fool and let's go dolphins magic and the holiday season going. How about that? Yeah Fins up Jay Hashtag fins up. Put Your Hansen your head like this. You say okay now you have been. It's kind of almost link Defense Kucha. PD our faith is in the dolphins. Right now I'd rather have my faith in somebody else in Ryan Fitzpatrick we trust. Say Go with a beard. Komo May and Fitz Magic. I can't find that that song you lied fits. It's Magic Davis Song. It's on Youtube fits magic. I'm going to be playing in it. Yeah I mean. That's the sounds mayor fins up Yup got a quick call in before we take another break. Jim What did you think about Sunday night football while I was excited to watch the team and the thought they did a really great job as a little. Oh concerned about the defensive line. And they're keeping the past lane integrity. Since like a Lotta Times they were opening it up. And there's a couple of quarterbacks that we're GONNA play in the playoffs that are gonNA make mincemeat out of us If we if we don't oh one of the things you ever noticed in the chiefs press conferences that they are more catch phrases raises than the simpsons which which which one is your favorite one. Jim Oh boy. It's kind of tie at the end of the day and when everything's said and done a really good football team. They're very well coach. We know we know that Andy Reid. We'll be looking forward to the challenge. They sure Kendrick with two playing Los Angeles downs or candidate West Better to bowl down various ward surveys works with cancer handy. The tire me various ward eight knocking. The past was a to really that we saw from the night to pass the fender but one of the end zone it. We're seeing this teammate. Clutch plays in the end zone. You know flagged free making those clutch places. O'Brien do it against the Patriots. We saw. What tyrod Matthew did against Portland Sutton Rodney? A surefire touchdown touchdown From the Denver Broncos. You're seeing the the defensive backs tip of make plays and in really you know what would offensive line. Do you see other quarterbacks. Could make make mincemeat mincemeat Devi away has the chiefs past defensive. Sixth and keep this in mind coverage has been good devi away had the chiefs defense at eleventh made the bears at seven. That's a real close between a really good defense in where the Kansas City chiefs are the past. Defense has been good if you say well. It's because the run defense. Keep this in mind. The chiefs have allowed allowed less receptions wide receivers then any team in the league. They came up just given one thirty two. The Patriots were one thirty eight so you say okay because teams are running the the football. It's becoming harder to run on the Kansas City chiefs. The bears just barely over one hundred yards again. It did matter. Go ahead Matt. Nagy keep running the football. 'CAUSE YOU'RE GONNA run out the clock quarterbacks will certainly be better in the playoffs but the chiefs coverage has been good and these are two units to you talk about the defensive line in Secondary. They help each other right. So if the secondary covers a little bit more time for the defensive line to get home defensive line Russia's the quarterback easier cover downfield. So you like this unit you like the way that they're helping each other both on in the front seven seven and in the secondary we need to take a quick break when we come back on the Arrowhead postgame show. You'll get to hear from the quarterback. Patrick mahomes thanks. Post game show the arrowhead dried postgame. Show here's Pete Sweeney and Jada Pinkett. Welcome back into the Arrowhead. Pride postgame this game. Show the chiefs win on Sunday night. Football over the bears. Twenty six to three peat Sweeney Nick Price and Jabe Inca sitting across from me. We're going to talk more about this game but first let's hear from the chief quarterback after the wind perceived office. Yeah I thought we did a good job as AH offense and has a team in general just taking what was their Their defense is a really good defense. They have a lot of great players. They a lot of different countries and blitzes that you and I felt like we did did a good job of taking. What was there? Whenever we got opportunity shops? We did and then when when they got us we gotta try to get the ball in my hand and get it to God and make plays in space the score. I mean honestly I mean me and my team and we were going out. We had a big score before the half south. And I'll just trying to enjoy it and I mean he see me play every I'll play with the motion and I like to go out there and just have fun with my teammates. Was that something you've thought about doing that you would do. You know not not at all honestly. I don't think about celebrations and stuff like that. I leave that the Tar Rican Kelsey and those guys and I just kind of go out there and just enjoy the moment. And that's that's kind of who I am as played by passion and I like to go out there and it'd be those guys. I don't know if there's necessarily meaning I was just Kinda just in the moment and just and just enjoying it. I mean we had a big score there with dusting coming off the roughing the punter and then given the first down in scorn before half knowing you're getting the ball out of out of the second half. I knew it was a big moment in the game. And you take advantage when you get opportunities in the reading aside defense touchdown any stadium. Why why did that come out? I don't know I don't know a lot of things to come out when I do celebrations but I I just kind of try to just go out there and enjoy it no. I can't dance or anything like that. I leave that to the receivers and just do what I can do. They think anyone that goes about it and as a competitor wants to be the first guy. But you know that you you you know that. There's a process assist to it and you know not everyone's GonNa be pig. I and I ended up in a great situation in Kansas City. A situation where I wanted to be some organization that took me. And maybe the best player that I could be at this time and so I'm just excited that I'm here now and I was able to go out there and find a way to win a football game or you were tabor's overall offers going into the sales going to yeah I mean. I think we're building. I think that's been the biggest thing you've seen these last four to five to six weeks. We really just took this process of building each and every week the defense you can see the steady improvement every single week and how they're not letting up any any weekend and offensively we're trying to get back on track to where we're at the beginning of the season. I think that comes with a lot of healthy guys getting back getting back in the flow of things and we're kind of building that chemistry that we had at the beginning this season and so I'm just excited that we're kind of moving offense defense special teams in the right direction. What did you see Theresa's bringing to this? Yeah Yeah I mean. He's around he was around the play. I mean that's what you expect when you get a guy that caliber that talent is no matter. If it's a run play pass rushing or whatever he was doing he was always in the mix of making plays blaze in and so I think as he gets more and more knowledge of this defense and learn more. I think you'll see him getting more. And more involved platform throws aw right foot or you drop it outside different ways to do that. Is that based on the timing of the round window that you can actually go out there make. Yeah I think it's it's it's more trying to just find any way possible to get the ball to those receivers tight ends and running backs and let them make plays the one where I was kind of ran. The kind of the read option with the option to throw. As well I rancho left in the big forty seven was out there and he had his hands up and I knew I couldn't get it to blake but I needed to find a way to do it so I just dropped his side arm and I think that just comes with stuff up that we've worked on training camp all the way throughout the season so those guys are ready for that type of stuff and I'm trying to find a way to get them the the football. Yeah I think you take a great mindset in that running back room whenever whoever it is numbers gets called. They're they're coming up in step it up and making plays and so that comes with the mentality. They haven't that running back. Rooms are preparing their self each and every week preparing themselves each and every week to be ready to go and and then whenever they're getting their opportunity that are making please take us through the touchdown. Run what you saw on how it opened up for it. Yeah so we kind of had a little bit of a flood type concept to the right and as I I. I saw the D. line stunning and they were kind of trying to butch. Will we call it on Kilson. Disrupt his timing. I just saw the hole that opened up with two men scheme that they had going on and so once I saw that and I saw that I could kind of make a run for respect and try and get a first down but they really opened up and I was able to get in the end zone. I what a quarterback talk a good game. Everything like that. I mean he's a good guy. Great Guy who works extremely hard and so I respect him and his game and we see CHR sometimes in the off season and I'll catch up with them then him and I don't know if it's necessarily robbery any quarterback you play with in this league you I wanna you WANNA go out there and win of course in so I mean it's not a robbery I guess you would say but it is competitive and you want to go out there and be the best and every time you step on the field. Yeah I mean He. He's a great football player. The way he's able to catch the ball the backfield run the ball out of the backfield and and also block. I mean he can really do everything and so for us to have him back is there's another asset that we can throw in that offense that can help us spread the defense out and hopefully keep us rolling Roland. Moving in a positive direction was different this week off against Human History Kansas City. Other than the I think a few codewords that you had to kind of change because we have very similar lingo as we as we go about it it was pretty much the same they got us on a blitz that that they hadn't shown before I and I could probably tell Nag Nag knew a little bit about it so they got us on that but now I mean I thought we did a good job of just having played are good verse. Everything their defense like. I said it's a really really really good defense. And they do a lot of different things and so we just executed and found ways to move it down. The field quarterback Patrick Mahomes via spectrum. Sports sports after the chiefs win on Sunday night football. You could hear being that. He was unwilling to go into the meaning behind the counting to ten. But I think questions on that everybody. Everybody realized what he was doing. He was picked tenth in the draft. Mitch Trubisky was selected second and clearly. He was the better pick. No he wasn't he wanted people to know it. Just it was just the answer to me. Didn't plan the celebrations. I think he just did it. Just one of those who knows if someone said something to him from the crowd here noise and he wanted they do the counting but it's effective because that's Chicago thinks about they've been thinking about Padma homes in the fact that they made the wrong pick in the draft at some that they were concentrating the trading on and well he certainly reminded him of that and I thought it was funny. Patrick Mahomes went twenty three of thirty three two hundred fifty one yards in two touchdowns he also had two carries for fourteen yards ran for a score three touchdowns on the game that makes him our AP player of the game. So the player of the game is Petra momzette. Yeah least tell the host of festival in the morning tomorrow. Jay Bentley Player of the game is Patrick. mahomes Petra in Travis Kelsey now twenty four yards behind the under hopkins most receiving thieving yards in the AFC. Last week is pretty close seriously. Those tied in twenty four yards behind the Andrea Hopkins impressive right and tyreek hill for thousand yards in his career. Tonight the fastest chief to do so in fifty eight games if you want to call us and get your thoughts out nine one three five seven six seven six ten. I'm GONNA take a quick call before we break Neil from Jack you've been waiting awhile. What's going on and evening First of all of Verde okay. Happy Birthday to everybody. In the world the world worked out month. Oh I just WANNA say I think saw Oh really happy to see him play tonight and not only play play really well. He wasn't dominant fit in. I thought he made the right. Plays in fact you look really good defense now is what two three games a road. overplaying complimentary stolid football on both sides of the ball very excited title about that. And you know my favorite catchphrase by the way I will say that you know my favorite terrorism and I must say this I think not only does the defense have championship it right now but the offense to come around entire team championship fizzle and I'm pretty excited about bad. You said sizzle there we go. We'll sizzle brought to you by Terrell suggs sizzle T- sizzle. It is far as the defense is complementary. If we're talking about the offense matching with the defense yeah defensively last five games nine point six points a game the last five. That's a good sample size in the NFL. When you're talking about five games to thirty four teams have scored more than nine points? The Patriots scorgeous sixteen in the Eagle. Back to the raiders game. Nine the chargers seventeen yet those up nine point six per but only seven point three against the the last three games. It's just impressive as defense goods complimentary football like deals friend of the show. BJ kissel highlighted some of the stats to come out of chiefs. The last five games on defense Chiefs allowed nine point six points per game under ten. That's that's pretty good j just three of thirteen red zone trips to result in touchdowns touchdowns allowed just twenty of sixty two third down conversions. And they've forced nine turnovers back to back games of three points to allowed to dominant wins right now. Thirty five percent on third down percentage seventh in the NFL through the chiefs are sitting. Is I've told you this stuff matters. Mail on third down. It's right so the chiefs get the big win on on Sunday night football. If you want to get involved please do so six nine. Three zero six is our text line. Nine one three five seven six seven six ten. I see Eric and Michael Equal weighting. We will get to you right after the break. You're listening to the Arrowhead. Pride postgame show post game show the Arrowhead dried post game game show. Here's Pete Sweeney Brinkley. Welcome back into the post game. Show Chiefs Win Twenty six to three on Sunday Sunday night football nick. Price Sweeney. J. bigly bringing it home here. A great and dominant chiefs win. I saw a question come through on on the text line about who the chiefs play if the season ended today. Since she's to be the three seed they would play secede at Arrowhead and wild card weekend. And that'd be Tennessee. Titans Titans Titans need to win next week to solidify themselves number six. Also be the Pittsburgh steelers. My feet. Oakland raiders if certain things happen. They ended up winning a tiebreak in Texas six nine three zero six nine one three five six seven six seven six ten. I said I get to these calls. Eric and Pleasant Hill. What's on your mind? Hey what's going on boys Longtime listener there's a big fan of yours I WANNA say I feel like you know the past couple of weeks. We've been playing really get defensively. Obviously offense Lou. We've been coming coming around But honestly like I really. I'm not afraid when when it comes to play offs just because I feel like Patrick Mahomes and officers gonNA come alive The only thing that I am worried about maybe just a little bit is maybe the Patriots Baltimore not a whole lot But I think we're coming around and you know I love the way the plan and then no thing is. Is there a chance that there's going to be on the PODCAST. My Girl's GonNa be in around eleven but having waiting to hold his call so I'll just listen off air a good ending to the call. Thank you for the call Big Fan of yours bank so I'll let you respond. Thanks thanks Pete What was that made? Sure to say big fan of banks. What was the last comment though? I didn't hear that the beat you're here to thank you. Say he said that he was going in and eleven once he got his phone call off and I guess his girlfriend was waiting. Oh He's going inside the house. Yeah there you go. It's keeper. Wade Man Yeah. Police are to get that thing. That's always the right way to say. I went out Christmas shopping. You you don't ask questions around Christmas that's right. We tell these words from Santa Bank. Don't do anything I say. Michael in Lenexa. What'd you think of the game? I was a great game on. I'm trying my best Patrick. Mahomes like troll. Six is better than eight. Radio is but anyway I was just curious so last year the all the pressure like the MVP had the best record at home field advantage. You feel like the Ravens have that and I feel like the chiefs. Don't really have a ton of pressure. And what makes me laugh as well probably beat the chargers. I don't know that we're going to have the same record same mostly players but I just I just feel like it's easier for us this year. Well I love with Daniel Jeremiah said on the NFL network. He called his team grittier. Yep then last year last year was all about flash. It was about You know lighting up the scoreboard in it was considered a flashy teams. It was yeah but you have. Patrick Mahomes is great. But the defense M I would take this chiefs team two thousand nineteen against the two thousand eighteen chiefs anywhere anywhere I get. It's a lot of the same cast in character. Offense is much much different on defense therefore pete on the Infield. It doesn't matter where they play this game. I'll take the two thousand nine hundred nine chiefs because Patrick Mahomes gave us a glimpse of this what he was talking about not as in many camping in through training camp about the defense given given him different looks and challenging him remember when he would say those things Pete minicamp not as yeah and he was saying. Hey this defense different looks you know inspect Nola brought that and I think when you take this defense. They're not gonNA stop. Patrick Mahomes what they say on sportscenter just hoped to contain him the but Patrick Mahomes will destroy the two thousand eighteen chiefs Stevens. Wouldn't because I wouldn't be sure I wouldn't be shocked if Darwin Thompson put up one hundred spot on the defense last year on the ground. I'm not kidding you but the two are better team than they were last year. Beginning of this Shear Bank I mean they're more for playoff run just because his defense and then take the nineteen chiefs over eighteen. Despite thirty five points a game the chiefs they were solid at the the beginning of the year but they were also allowing runners to run all over them. You you're seeing Philip. Lindsay is a good player. Montgomery's having a good year montgomery held the fifty seven yards. The broncos rushing attack was held under sixty fifty last week that is a sign in a positive direction too because it was oh ways he's yet a chiefs defense is good but now you're seeing them. Control the rushing attack as well all good things headed into the postseason postseason nine one three five seven six seven six ten coal in Olathe. What's on your mind? Hey with the guys so I am a I I actually do podcast work and I have my own little sport. Show Afrique state so I I like to consider myself as a pretty plugged in with the chief. Jer you. You GotTa do a great job listening to all the time. So I've been saying this for ever since. Really the loss of the Tennessee Titans and curious what you guys think. Is there really any team besides the Baltimore. Ravens that as Itchy staying you should be scared of planes because quite honestly. I don't even know if I'm here to them. Well the titans would be one if they even make the playoffs Adere Kyrie. It looks like he's GonNa play next week. He wouldn't play in this This weekend for the Tennessee titans then how he goes. That team goes. Let's face it. That team is about dirk entering the physicality running the football He is coming back. Next week's hampered by what the hamstring hamstring and they kind of what's bothering Derrick Henry. The reason he didn't play today right but that team goes how he goes. And look at what happened after the chiefs game. You Talk Healy. One hundred yards in his is right on the dot before he ran for one eighty chiefs in just took off in just started dominating the games in dominating fashion in a big reason why yes Kayla. He'll get good there serve. What six thousand two as a starter? Now but how he goes they go A. There's a there's a chance they don't even make the post season. Yeah that's true I. We'll see the best match up I think for the chiefs would be the Pittsburgh steelers if they have signed away in there because the quarterback mahomes versus quarterback ex and the chiefs are winning that game. The titans are are interesting is Andy Reid. Is that weird thing with the titans. The raiders if they find a way in there they would be seeing the chiefs for third time. I don't think that's ever something that you want. I still think that she could be. The titans are playing last couple of weeks. You know. There's there's something about a team that feels like okay we've done. It already can do it right right here. In the postseason right now. They are the the only team I'm afraid of in the AFC. And when I say afraid it's it's being liberal with it because I think the chiefs can beat anybody in the NFL l. but the ravens would be there and then really no one else in the AFC to be completely honest that I'd feel uncomfortable. Now you get to the NFC. I look at the San Francisco. Forty niners I look at the New Orleans Saints. I look at the Green Bay packers even Seattle and even Minnesota. If you catch him on the right day I think they could ride with the chiefs. Am I afraid of maybe the saints. Maybe the saints not afraid of the Eagles and so yeah I think the chiefs are right there with all of these contenders and they're going to be after now. This national gain gene and Patrick mahomes throwing his fingers up. The chiefs are going to be this hot and sexy pick coming out of the AFC. I'd be much more afraid of the saints in a dome drew. Brees is just the different quarterback in a dome and outside the Dome Forty nine dollars could possess that problem again the the Ravens and forty nine the top running teams in the NFL in the top ten is littered the teams in the postseason as far as running the football. And I guess that should be a concern. You know what the chiefs running defense and I know they have gotten better but that's one way to control the clock running the football football especially in January and keeping mahomes on the sideline. That's my biggest fear but if this defense keeps playing the way they're doing especially on third downs getting off the field and giving mahomes more chances chances. Yes now the Ravens game in Baltimore in the chiefs had beaten them twice in Arrowhead. That's the different scenario. But she heard damn good road teams teams seventy one now on the road some they have done since nineteen sixty six right and I think having that confidence and being able to go to different places throughout the year and went on the road is going to be big for them even even if you are able to get to the super bowl because everyone's on the road and the Super Bowl you'll be planning in Miami chief feel like right now that they can win anywhere and they should they have that championship swagger that championship sizzle. Oh I see a tweet here from Ken he says can we talk about how Harrison Butts biker basically trolled the host city of Chicago with a double doing commenced that this team is out out here. Trolling folks now. While I'd love to believe that was intentionally done we know that it was not but I you know I in the spirit of the win and Patrick mahomes trolling with his fingers. You wish that that was an intentional Jab trolling business. Now now. He's a very very kind guy off the field very religious. I don't think he's the type of guy who Is going to troll other people but the chiefs getting big one. This is a big win on Sunday. Then I football they keep the pace with the rest of the keep that third seed. They'RE GONNA have to win to lock up at least a third seed next week against the La chargers when we come back it'll be time time for our final verdict. That's next on the Arrowhead. Pride postgame show post game. Show the Arrowhead dried post this game show. Here's Pete Sweeney and J Brinkley. Welcome back into the era. Had Bride hosts game show. Pete Sweeney Nick Price. Jj wrapping things up on a great Sunday night for chief a game that was never questioned. The chiefs went wire-to-wire in this one for the second game in a row beating the bears twenty six to three and it was a night. And you're seeing some of the tweets. Commanders Chicago with the Chicago beat writers. It's a looking look in the mirror. Type night look yourself in the mirror and bears franchise has to do that. And they traded up number two pick they selected Mitch trubisky and that was a terrible terrible mistake and it was on full display Sunday night for the world to see in Chicago. Bears players called the loss embarrassing. Patrick mahomes continues. Send us to play well and the story right now of this team is defense. That's holding opposing teams. I don't care if it's teams that aren't make the playoffs to just three points back to back weeks. Yeah it's it's great. In the first time they haven't allowed a touchdown back toback weeds since two thousand six to seven and one record the first time since nineteen sixty he. Six for this team and J. is getting choked up here and you're excited about it. Just get excited about this. Take so much. No but here's the thing about it with his team. It's just a margin the way they go out and take care of business and that's the one thing about the chiefs this season as they go out and take your business on the road with his defense continuing to get better. This is something for us to enjoy. What the chiefs are doing? And now that the season's flown by seizes flown by this dust. You got one week. Left with the Wrigley's cousins fun and have fun but we do have fun but the one thing is we all know what the seasons about. It's about the postseason like that. The party writes the after party. It's what the cheese said about the season. It's about the post after that about the party. Yeah Party P. can't even listen to that song anymore terrible. It's almost midnight man was pro. Let's get excited Pete. Here today Knock Wood if you're with me. He's got that championship sizzle himself right now contended swag. We're ten minutes away from there. It is again for ten minutes away from victory Monday so with that in mind. Let's turn the pig fire on the page. The final verdict glued final. Your final verdict back. When you think about this game after the season's over what are you going to remember from Senate ethical I think about Sizzle Manger Very Ward tweets beats out hooking up Casey? All right good doesn't it. You tell them sure very nice past the Indrek various various. WHOA that's right? Yeah that's West but look at this eighty read. Says they'll seven three eleven one eight eight. That's the bears margin of defeat. That's right chiefs. Come in there. Give them their biggest gets beatdown of the year by the tune of twenty three points. What about twelve points? More than any other team has beat. The bears comes at the hands of the Kansas City chiefs. You'd think the speed was doing last five games nine point six against the last three seven point three points against in wit. Did you think he'd look at this. The city chiefs esteem in C.. Three and the last four games people haven't even got ten points. That's basically Saint Patrick. You have this Rolls Royce of an offense with tyreek Hill and Travis Kelsey Kelsey that second in the AFC in receiving yards as the tide in Fabricio the fastest. Four thousand yards in chiefs history. You'll need to score eleven points. No they need more than that. But the defense. He's playing like this. They don't have land up the scoreboard. You know what they don't care about lighting scoreboards. Just forget about that. It's it's about icing the game away at the end. It's it's the precision timely passes by Patrick Mahomes if I'm the NFL. I would fear the Kansas City chiefs just like Daniel Jeremiah. I said Hey. This is better than last year's team. This team is grinning. His team is tough. This team has the defensive edge that can push around anymore pete. They're pushing other teams around. It's good to see all off season. We just wanted the defense to be average said man if the chiefs defense can just be middle of the road that'll be fine because the bag -nificant you have the reigning. MVP and Patrick Mahomes for another week until the season ends. Lamar Jackson takes over. You get the point these can just be average and here you are at the end of the season and there's no doubt in my mind. It is a strength among the top. Ten in the League some people would put it as is top five with the way they're playing now are to argue that I think right now just based upon the full season the point is on both sides of the football chiefs are playing at a championship caliber level. And there's been so many ears than in previous seasons where they peaked too early and they're not endanger that because even as they're doing well on these games and you start the half ask today and you had back to back punts right and so you're nitpicking here but there's still room for improvement. There's still room for this offense D be even more efficient as the defense has come into its own yeah. It's been a softer schedule. The past couple of weeks but you can only play. You can play and this defense is proving to the entire world on Sunday night football. They they'll be a force to be reckoned with and I don't care if you have to face Tom Brady. I don't care if you have to face the more Jackson. Chuck Hodges the Shawn Watson the the narrative they can't win Primetime Games. Derek Carr potentially again Jon Gruden defense will pick you off defensive defensive stop you from scoring points and if this defense is holding teams to under twenty points under seventeen points under ten good luck. Patrick Mahomes is going to score touchdowns the chiefs defense could hold the opposing teams consistently every game to under twenty points. They'RE GONNA win the Super Bowl. That's that's my final. Very good. Very good said Pete. You're on a roll. I was feeling myself. Get cheap swagger man. I felt Tom Cruise in a few. You and a few good men bring it a great debut for T- sizzle in this game. Terrell suggs chason company. It brings Frank Clark. That bandits stole it. Don't forget he brings the impact of the notebook here late the other the night and then came in here yesterday. I don't how much sleepyhead very much. But almost impressive thing and I think all our players got the eyeballs on to come into needing style notebook in talking toilet for tonight affirm suggs man spiral notebook. So the chiefs. Play the chargers next week. The chargers have an opportunity to play spoiler. Either think that this is the last time we see Philip rivers versus the chiefs and it could. He was sure looking like he was gonNA make one last appearance next year and so-fi stadium in. The chargers probably should talk him in staying around for that one year. I can't think of a better. Philip rivers does like talking to the younger anger. quarterbacks Andy Lock it drew locks had him on the show once he said that Philip rivers was one of those guys really reached out the drew lock. You know in the off season training like that would be almost a perfect fit. He's probably got a little bit of Alex. Smith grooming. I don't think he I think he checked ego next to it and understand that. He's helping the chargers in the future. Going forward by grouping a quarterback but but that to me is the right guy for them to go for just a knowledge chargers. You're not going anywhere. Pat Mahomes here in Kansas City. You need a quarterback this division. Derek Carr is not the answer in Oakland. I know there's still mathematically alive. They're not the answer and who knows maybe drew is the answer in Denver. We don't know I see. This vision is really scratching their heads saying gene. How do we get a quarterback like that? I don't think she should overlook the chargers but they should win that football game. I am interested in seeing if this is the last time. The Chief Philip Philip Rivers. There's a lot of scenarios is going to be a lot of really interesting free agent quarterbacks out there that could be stars in the legally Teddy Bridgewater is interesting to me. I think Cam Newton everything you hear. Tom Brady Tom. Brady's talks to him going to the chargers right and so lot of different scenarios. And it'll be Kinda sad and again in Philip rivers has always been an easy player to hate because he gets a little Sassy driving but I think no longer playing rivers on a consistent basis. You'll you'll miss that. Ah Yes you won't Miss Phillip. I think I think you'll I think you'll miss the almost the interceptions he throws the back and forth with with rivers. And and that. And and if you're if you're if you're in the AFC west division you're not the chiefs. You got problems at the quarterback position I know Dino j you think the broncos have figured it out that that still remains to be seen as far as I'm concerned you know they have but who want to win the day you know that. The chargers will WANNA play spoiler next week and so it should be a good match each of the chiefs as you heard from Andy Reid earlier will be playing to win this game yet but the chargers should scared anybody again. You're talking about a team. It's disappointed themselves. Team was twelve and four last year. Coming here you know what happens. A lot of these teams man a lot of meal it in mail it in into the year plan those Pina coladas on the beach right and the chiefs still and and if they continue to play like they've done in previous weeks here this game will be over before you know it. The chargers play spoiler today. No no no. The written their mom's basement apartment above the rams minutes with our at they lose to the raiders. A chance to play spoiler chargers. Were the home team. Lose to the raiders in that soccer stadium. Philip didn't throw an interception which is good for Philip they ran the chargers ran nineteen yards as the team nineteen yards as a team. Not exactly spectacular charger stuff. Is They pee. Down their leg against the raiders. So the place heard that they'd better be getting better. SPLITS US on twitter. I think it was C dot. That had it that they had to call timeout because Philip rivers couldn't hear and they were playing in. La Yeah advance. Nobody likes them. Well that'll do it for our coverage achier the chiefs and the bears. I mean I don't know if you have to say that right at the show bandler very Christmas Pete breakers with Nick Special.

[187] Week 4 LA Chargers review & Week 5 Chicago Bears preview

"Every year in the NFL it's a new team as far as goals go we have one. Putting a ring on her finger. Welcome to the Buccaneers Observer podcast. This is Ralph Phillips. Molly Bay day is October 7th. June twenty still still feeling good after the win let you I am I am a little nervous about playing so soon found. I don't like the I like having a week to savor the wind, you know gets the point what you know is a really good win bucks nation is really happy about this month and we only get what two or three days to celebrate but you know, what here's what's going to happen. We're going to have more days of celebrate after we will pop up on the Bears. That's true Silver Lining Two Scoops glass-half-full, right? Okay. We got a big program for you tonight. We are going to talk about The game we haven't talked about the game. I know at all. That's what we were missing. We were talking about before the podcast were like, okay, what do we got to cover? We got to cover the the game film wage and the Chicago game. There's something else we could remember what it was and we gotta talk about the game. Yeah. Okay. So we're going to cover the game give you our thoughts on it. And then I'm going to go over the game film off and they were going to talk about the poor Chicago Bears. They were getting a double. I feel no pity for him. No pity me neither. All right, so we're getting fat checks or follow-ups. Do you have any notes on anything? Yeah, I have a ton of notes. Okay. Yeah, we got news too. So stick around for that. What do you want to cover first? Let's let's talk about the Chargers game. Okay. Let's talk about charge again. We can talk about that forever. As far as I'm concerned is a great game except here's the thing it went exactly exactly how we said it was going to go except the exact opposite. I said I said the we were going to get up off the Chargers and then we were going to take foot off the gas and they were going to struggle back and and get within one score of us. But now we struggled first. Yeah, we don't really struggle came back home. They they got lucky about that. I liked it. So let's go with that. What were your thoughts on the game while you're not so instant react hi down for days. And we watch the game twice already or I have anyway. That first quarter felt so familiar are the first half really felt so familiar, you know, we get down 24-7. Was it a missed field-goal the Pick 6 and it just felt like the same old bugs and then we just come back and it was an amazing comeback what I love the most about the game was winning Yeah. Well, yeah, but the Pick 6 And I'm not trying to knock on Jameis but it's just kind of it's not necessarily about Jameis. It's about how the team was before was that last year's a pick-six would have defined the whole game like it would. It all be downhill from there right after the Pick 6 and yeah, it was often it kind of flavored the game, you know and took time. It didn't like it was just kind of an asterisk like you almost forget about it towards the end. You're like, oh, yeah. We had a pick-six. Sex and it just wasn't a big deal. Tom Brady was able to come back from it. It didn't even Shake him know like he just got back on the field and I was like, yeah. Okay. Let's see us again Teflon Tom. Yeah. He was just he was just like water off a duck's back. Yeah, there were so many good things. First of all Row Joe now. During the game Ralph was screaming like stopped giving it to ro Joe. This is like the best game you ever had and I found out later. It's because Reagan benched him and fantasy and those the only reason and now when I go in a row Joe and I'm like who's team? Are y'all what the hell was the point and all Buccaneers fantasy team and you bench the buck in the air and then Scotty Miller was the same thing just crush it. And yeah Dimension. I haven't really been paying a whole lot of attention to fantasy football this year. And I I've forgot that I had benched Rajah legally story. Well, I would have put him in but you know, I mean, we we have a busy weekend so I check it. I think I checked it when we got to the bar and I was like, oh crap. I didn't play Road Joe well too late now and then here they are. They're just dumping it to him and he gets her I was like what well dead. His hands were not great like he ran great but he had those drops and so that was a little frustrating but you know, it is what it is. We knew that about Road. Oh that's been religious issue. It was last year topic. They're running backs coach talked about it. They worked on it in the offseason with him. And so I mean, I don't really hold against rodeo at this point. It's just the he is what he is. Yeah Levon job to pass to be able to if you dropped passes in this game, the one the bond was thrown behind him a little bit, but it's still bounced off. His hands. Just catch it. Yeah agreed. Yeah, but yeah, I had to that he just right in his hands popped right out Mike Evans phenomenal performance my favorite Mike Evans plight. Well, there were two and one was not really a play. The first one was that end zone reception where I swear to God he jumped how to be like sixty they're dead. So high, I don't really know how high is exceeded don't have a video set. It was so high he jumped. Yeah. Yeah. It was a great pass by Brady to an got that touchdown got the feet in bounds so that the second favorite play was when he got into a fight with that cornerback and he shoved them. Yeah. Yeah, and then after he shoved him like everybody was staying around and Mike acted like he was walking away and then he stepped back at him and did like a fake Flinch like he was going to punch him. You know, they got jumped off now he did get flagged for that one and I can't remember. Yeah, and then we end up going three-and-out. So whatever. There was I don't know if it was that same play that Jensen actually picked him up and took him away from it. Yes. That was a there was a wait know what you know, it's bad when Jensen all people is carrying you away from a fight. Yes. If Jensen is having to pull you away from a fight you have got some fighting but I just I love my temper. I take no issue with it whatsoever. He's learn it if you ask me like if you're like, okay, he's going to get a personal foul penalty like once every three or four games. I'm like, I'll take it given his production and kind of job that you like that fire. You don't somebody who doesn't give a shit. It has gotten a lot better with his temperament. Absolutely since that Marshon Lattimore incident. Yeah. I got suspended, I got suspended for that one and since then it seems like he's kind of chilled out but Do you know how many yards he had? It was over a hundred. I want to say like a hundred twelve in that range. I don't know how hundred 2222. I did play my cabinets off on the super weird Tom Brady. I know. Oh I was I killed it influence, even though I didn't play Roy Joe or Scotty Miller. I didn't play Scotty Miller either. How what was I thinking this week? We got like nobody else. Oh, yeah. I'm I'm dumping them all back in. How did you get out of the lineup units? Okay. We're not here to talk about Ralph. We are always here to talk about fantasy. Roto seemed like he had a lot of success running up the middle like he did really well against that interior defensive line. I felt like They killed us on the outside, which is what we said. I don't I think he's at it. But so that was a little he was a tan is that on the linebackers? I mean, it seemed like Levante was there but I don't recall seeing Devin white except for the phone fumble recovery in the first half. Yeah. He didn't have that spectacular again. The Levante was all over the place. Very good. Was it Levante? Yeah, Levante and Sean Murphy bumpy and got another kind of flip this week. So long Sean Murphy Bunty and like flipped a guy over and the Levante like nails and mid-air stop him. I mean it was they went three-and-out on that one. We gotta start coming up with a name for that because it's happened. So it a donk I want to call it an alley-oop cuz like Sean Murphy wanting comes in there and then whoever else comes and cleans it up last time. It was joking P this time. It was Lavonte David off. poop poop I think that's right, right. I don't want to basketball. Yeah, yeah. You know your physical somebody cleans it up for you. Let's see. Oh J. Okay. Let's talk about o j you really don't like o j i mean as far as like everybody else you like every you understand the hype. I don't get it. He's never played a full season for us. It's his fourth. I looked at it and the game, please play this fourteen games and especially like a year like this year fourteen games. Like that's not going to help us if we go to the playoffs where you know, this this time we get a three-game for a job for the season. He had a path that he bobbled again that could have been picked up should have been against it a better defense and it wasn't a game. I just, you know, his blocking a suspect like he just acts like VH three special-teams like he doesn't want to be blocking. Yeah. He just kind of gets in the way. Yeah, he's not a so effort and I've seen people say that bright is our worst blocker, but I just don't know no bright was our best blocker until we got Gronkowski breaks the second Mass Parker. Yeah, so and I just Brave is like a touchdown machine like well, he was the Jameis him and Jameson great chemistry particularly in the red zone. So to me, it's like do you go with someone who's a sure touchdown or o j and it's like o j can't make those 5-yard touches, but he makes a spectacular 20-yard one with a defender's arm up in his face. It's just weird. I don't know. It's just too it's kind of like with the kicker like don't you just want someone who's going to get them use the five-yard versus a spectacular 20-yard one, right? We lost which I'm not saying I wanted him. To be injured or off the team. Let me get that clear right now, but we did lose him to an Achilles injury for the season. He's out and said I'm not going to say thankfully but we are extremely deep at the tight end position. Mhm. Yeah, we don't necessarily rely on them in the offense. No. So they're like a added bonus. Yeah, and I hope now with most of our receiving Corps injured maybe the Titans song step in there and help out. We brought up Taylor Hudson. We've got brake grunk. Yeah. I think we're going to be all right tight end. Yeah, and I think they will be a little bit more involved. Yeah. Absolutely the Los Angeles. Okay and Pewter Report brought up this point. I think it is a phenomenal point because in our preview this was what we were worried about with the Chargers was Austin ekeler. Mhm, and we knocked him out like immediately off for games now where we have knocked out their best player Mark Thomas Michael Thomas week to CMC. Christian McCaffrey week 3 we did knock out Driscoll which he's not their best player either but but we got him benched and then week for Austin declaration by far the best player and he was out like immediately. So yeah, you better watch it wrap your people in bubble wrap cuz we come in. Yeah. Yeah. Our defense is is Pretty Tough wage in many different ways will cover that a little bit. The echler thing Pewter Report had said that they felt if echler was still in there that we would have lost a game. I think it would have been a very different game. Yeah. I don't know that we would've lost I don't think so. No, I think it would have been very different and they would have been a lot more competitive than they were God. He was so slippery when he was in there. Yeah. Yeah. He's a really really good running back just all-around. Good running backs. I've done some cleaning up. Yeah, I've noticed look mess on my keyboards over here. Okay, you're like pulling up now. He's like I can't have any horizontal surfaces. I know never summer and I'm rubbing off on Ralph get your bad habit. So then they came out they got up on his pretty quick if they had the big pass Whitehead got beaten coverage on the huge pass and it was it was a really strange play. It was really strange because we had seven guys was the the first touchdown that they got. Yes first touch and this is where he Herbert Herbert can't remember his Sherbert what's so dangerous? And that's what we said those bombs. I mean, we'll just sit back there and chunk it and they had some success doing that. Yeah. That's what we said. They they they run the ball. They worked the outside, you know the flats and then they chunk it down. Field and that's pretty much exactly what they did this whole game but Whitehead got beat in that one. Like I said, it's very strange play because we had seven guys back there in coverage. What covering a three receivers. How does that how I just to me, that's an excusable. Well it it was very it was it was very strange because Whitehead again, this is same thing that happened with Jamal Dean in wanting a week one a week to be tracked the ball the whole way. He saw it coming he was in position to jump up and knock it down and then he just watched it lands right in the guy's hands white-headed the exact same thing. He tracked the ball the whole way wasn't like he was lost or confused or anything like that and then he just turned around and watched it fall right in the hand, you know the receiver and I'm like, why didn't you jump up and bat it off at least try or something. I think what happened watching the game film. I think what happened is out of the corner of his eyes. He saw Winfield come running over and he thought Winfield was going to get behind the guy's name. and he didn't want to jump up and bat the ball away because he thought Winfield might be a position to get an interception and he just ended up not making a very good decision there. It's funny because the two players that I was really talked up in the off-season Whitehead and Jamal Dean are probably our two worst decision far this year, it's bad. I think it's just a testament to how well Winfield has done. I had no nobody. I know it's good. It's so great. Did he have a good game? I didn't feel like this was our defense as best showing In some ways it
