What a day the mets had on Saturday. They pushed their lead in the national league east to 5 and a half games over the braves and they do it by beating Atlanta twice first one was an 8 5 win down at city field and the nightcap. It was all Max Scherzer 11 strikeouts that ties his season high and the mets post a 6 to two win and for the season, they are now 30 games over 500 and yes, Pete Alonso continues to drive in runs. He had three RBIs between the two games for the mets on Saturday. Things not so good for the Yankees this weekend in St. Louis.

"Studly Josh Jacobs performance and the Raiders. Smack it around the Jags in the Hall of Fame game, right? How about Samir white? Made your week over there. Did we watch that? Did anybody watch that game? Oh, millions of people. Under the 2020 NFL NFLPA collective bargaining agreement. The factual findings of the disciplinary officer are binding and may not be appealed. Okay, well, who's the disciplinary officer? Yeah, with Sue. So what are we doing? Right. Yeah, that's the first phase and it was appealed. That's why it's a little confusing. I don't think the second phase can be. Yeah, but if they said the first phase can't be, they just said he just read that. Right. It's binding. The NFL. And they appealed it. Right. So if that makes sense. If that's the case, then of course deshaun Watson and the NFL PA has because if the NFLPA and deshaun Watson, they all accepted the 6 game punishment. The NFL appeals and now would say it's a year, you better believe I'm going to appeal that. I think and this is, I took a call last night, and it sounded correct. I didn't check to see if it was. But it made sense, at least. And the guy said that because the NFL PA did not appeal the initial punishment. If they were to appeal going forward, it would just be the additional part that was added on to the punishment. You know what I'm saying? Like, right. They wouldn't be appealing the first 6. No, they would appeal the rest. Right. Okay. Well, if that's the case, then, yeah, back to the original question, they should be getting Jacoby up to speak. But Jacob is playing football. And deshaun Watson has not. So I understand the immediacy of getting him in the flow. He hasn't been doing anything football. No practice, no anything. So giving him all of these reps and getting trying to get him back in case he's going to come back because once you suspend it, there will be no practice. Once training camp is over and to see regular season starts, there is no more practice for him. So they have to do as much as they can now, so whenever this suspension is over, he's not that much further behind than he already is. So I understand that they don't look Jacob present that's great. But that's not the asset they're trying to protect. Yeah, I hear you. We'll circle back to that, but when you talk about getting someone up to speed, that's a luxury we have where we don't even have to worry about that. You know what I'm saying? Speak to it. Right. You hear like cars, this car goes zero to 60? This car goes 60. Automatically. Do you know what I'm saying? That's right. It's at 60 immediate. You blink, it's already there. And that is our very own friend of America, mister Steve the sager. Hello, gentlemen. Boy, do we have a lot of football news to pass along today? And no actual games this weekend. We're going to have a couple of NFL exhibitions on Thursday, plenty of games after that through next week. And, of course, this year's pro football Hall of Fame and shrine at ceremony was today honoring 8 men, including 20 vassali, cliff branch, dick vermeil and others. Brown's running back Kareem hunt is reportedly skipping team drills unhappy with his contract. He is expected to be fined. Eagles running back Boston Scott miss practice due to a concussion. Bucks QB Tom Brady returned to practice. He was excused from the last two. Tampa Bay wide receiver Mike Evans is day to day with his hamstring injury from yesterday, said to be minor, bears tackle Tevin Jenkins returned to camp after missing over a week of practice. Chicago wide receiver and Nikhil Harry was helped off the field after a leg injury, giants 5th round offensive lineman Marcus mcken out for the season with a torn ACL. Bengals quarterback Joe burrow still out indefinitely after his appendectomy and quarterback Mitchell trubisky is number one on the Steelers depth chart, mason Rudolph is number two, can he pick it rookie from pit is number three. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray returned to practice today after having COVID and linebacker Kiko Alonso retired. He had just signed with New Orleans. There are four NASCAR races left in the regular season, including Sunday's 400 at Michigan, ty Gibbs won today's Xfinity event, his 5th victory in that series this year, to Major League Baseball, the mets won the first of a double header against Atlanta 8 5 in the night camp at scoreless in the bottom of the second that's max freed, ten and three for the braise against Max Scherzer 7 and two for the mets. Giants and a's are back in action after having yesterday off. They're playing each other tonight and tomorrow, giants lead one zero after one, but my goodness have they been off of the last month, pretty much sewing up the lack of a playoff spot after their 107 wins last year. Meanwhile, we've got one of the late games, the Dodgers hosting the Padres again, Andrew heaney against Mike Clevenger. That would be just about the late game coming up in an hour and a half except the angels and Mariners are playing too, so they've got the second of a double header coming up at 10 p.m. Eastern Time. They've already played the first of two and the Mariners beat the halos two to one. The reason for the double header for the mets and the reason for the double header for the angels, making up a game miss due to the lockout in early April. As for games in progress, at Philadelphia, it's already 7 nothing Phillies over the nationals in the bottom of the second. Now the guy who was the starting pitcher tonight for the nationals entered, entered tonight with a record of four and 15 this season. The overpaid Patrick Corbin 6 runs aloud does not even get through the first inning, got two outs and was pulled. His ERA for the season is up to 7.02. Well, you referenced the exhibition the NFL started with the Hall of Fame game raiders over Jaguars on Thursday night. Yes, some people were watching as we always mentioned context for TV ratings. Any TV show ratings are down these days, but the NFL is very much still king, even with a preseason game. It got 5 and a half million viewers. By far the number one rated show for Thursday night. This is how big an audience it was, guys. On Thursday night, remember there was a weather delay. The first 40 minutes of that 8 p.m. hour when there was no football going on at all, 4.1 million viewers making that the number two TV show. Hilarious. Wow. Back to you. We're just tailgating, right? At that point. Just waiting for ball to

"17 weeks of the season. Lawrence, of course, tied with Matthew Stafford for the most interceptions in the NFL last year, but let's focus on the Hall of Fame weekend a great weekend in canton, Ohio and there are plenty of Hall of Famers in town this weekend. South pal, what more did you gather on the ground there this morning? Well, it's always my honor to cover the Hall of Fame for ESPN and I really like the day before enshrinement day because we get to go to the team hotel and talk to the players, talk to the new enshrinees and some of the old guys who are coming in to take the photo that happens today at Centennial park downtown. You see Jerry Rice chicken into the hotel. There's Tony door set there's Harold Carl Michael. And they get to interact with some of the new guys and it's fun. It's interesting and it's up close and personal. And I got to talk to a lot of them today and one of them was Lee Roy butler. Safety for the packers in the 90s and he explained to me on the day after Christmas, 1993. How he invented the Lambo leap, listened to this. And as you know, Sal, back in Philly, bridge would always later to Eric Allen. That's my guy, Eric Allen. So I run over there, he allows it to him, and run down the sideline. And I just remember the best thing I could do now. Instead of doing a dance, it's doing something weird, go hug a owner, jump up. There was surprise. They're like, why isn't this guy stopping? But it's the ultimate celebration because we love our fans so much. And to get a chance to high 5 and hug them was just truly amazing. How old the packers do now that devonte Adams is gone and Aaron Rodgers is on his own there. They have a system. When you have a system, you really don't need a lot of all pro players, but it would help. But you have one of the best quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers. As long as Aaron Rodgers is just getting dressed. They're gonna win games. It's been my honor to be on the selection committee for ten years and a guy like Leroy butler was in the all decades team in the 90s. He's waited a long time. Same with Tony basile all decade team of the 90s. Dick vermeil waited a long, long time. Guys like Richard Seymour. Let's not forget Richard Seymour, won three super bowls with those New England Patriots. Those super bowls did not win themselves. You know, those trophies didn't come to New England on their own. It's about time we got more of the Patriots in. We got ty law and now Richard Seymour. I think Willie McGinnis and our own teddy bruschi, middle linebacker on three Super Bowl titles. He deserves a shot. So this was a year we could get some guys in, who have waited a long, long time field Yates. Very much deserved in SAO pal, there is nobody in our company more deserving to be at the pro football Hall of Fame weekend covering it than you. We appreciate not just what you do for us here, but all of your contributions to this great game that we are all so honored to have the opportunity to cover. We'll talk to your students out there. Reminder that tomorrow will once again have that pro football Hall of Fame and stripe in ceremony for you on ESPN. In addition to you deterred from Leroy butler, the class of 2022 includes 20 vassali cliff branch, Sam mills at south Al just spent it Richard Seymour dick for me, O'Brien young and official art mcnally, the father of instant replay. That's tomorrow. Noon eastern 9 a.m. Pacific on ESPN and the app. Hey, some of the best video that you sell today on the Internet or elsewhere came from training camp. Let's look, take a look at some ridiculous catches and Damian, I think Kyle Pitts might have 5000 receiving yards this season. So that's not a single player in the league that'll be able to stop Kyle pizza here. Yeah. I mean, he is going to be the ultimate weapon. Only maybe perhaps his own quarterback play. That's the only thing they can slow them down, right? That's it. You're absolutely right about that. Yeah, from Atlanta to buffalo Stefon Dix on a nice route and it seems like he makes these things look way too easy. This is a one handed catch that looks ridiculously simple. Did you see the stem at the top of that route where he just made the defendant just fall flat on his face? Yeah, it's a broken egg. Get the card out for that guy right there for one defense. Let's go to Los Angeles and new rams receiver Allen Robinson continues to make some ridiculous catches. Those two Matthew Stafford and Alan Robinson can be dangerous this year. I am so glad that he's with a bona FIDE quarterback when the first time in his career. And finally, Elijah Moore, a guy that you know well you recently at jets training camp he is clearly one of Zach Wilson's favorite targets. How's this for a one handed snag? Hey, watch out. This guy's gonna be a star. Sounds like absolutely. He is, he is a stud. He's definitely just number one wide receiver this year. The talk of town and New York Jets training camp in Washington. Coming up on NFL live, we'll hear from browns coach Kevin Stefanski for the first time since deshaun Watson suspension was appealed. What's his plan for quarterbacks at Brown for the quarterback for the browns going forward here that next and later we're talking cowboys with the recent injury to James Washington, you should Dallas pursue some outside help at receiver. Our resident GM says yes, but who? You'll find out. Geico asks how would you love a chance to save some money on car insurance? Of course he would, and when it comes to great rates on insurance, Geico can help, like with insurance for your car, truck, motorcycle, boat, and RV, even help with homeowners or renters coverage, plus at an easy to use mobile app available 24 hour roadside assistance and more and Geico isn't easy choice. Switch today and see all the ways you could save. It's easy. Simply go to Geico dot com or contact your local agent today. FX is American horror stories. There is this thing inside of me that's always hungry. And I can't stop. The twisted anthology returns. You didn't think too much in the room where everyone dies that goes nuts. A nightmare every week. People are the most interesting right after death. It affects American horror stories, now streaming, only on Hulu. Welcome back to NFL live. The brows took the field again today with the deshaun Watson appeal still pending from the NFL. Chemist fans could head coach had his first comment since the appeal. And he said they are still figuring out the plan for their priests and game a week from today. It gets the Jaguars, and then added this on the overall quarterback plan. But when it comes to the quarterback position, you know, the approach we're taking right now is we've got to get everybody ready to play. We got to get to Sean ready to play. He hasn't played football in a year. We got to get jakoby ready to play. I mean, he's potentially going to be playing early for us and starting and we're going to be counting on him. Same thing for Dobbs and Rosen. Those guys have to be ready to play. So I just look at it as we're going to use every opportunity we have out here individual drill post practice during practice. We got to get all these guys ready to play. Obviously we won't know what's going on and be done with it. I mean, I think that if any team was in that situation, that's what they want. But we got to, again, like I said, you know, worry about your individual thing and kind of let that be handled by whoever's in charge of it. We now welcome in Jake trotter from Cleveland. He's our NFL nation brown's reporter. You're at practice earlier today, Jake and what more can you tell us about the next epic quarterback for the browns? Yeah, field. So the browns are waiting for some more clarity with this Watson situation before they do anything differently going forward. Concrete information was the way that coach Kevin Stefanski put it today. So to this point, including today's practice, deshaun Watson

"What happened. He's a bad dude. There. They built this team like an old school football team. Big offense of line. That's a more you kind of running back. You know, that is good in any in our league, whether it's Alan Cook, but there is Derrick Henry. This guy's hard to topple he break mortality rules. Any running back that he's coming to the league until that's where they got it going in and got a tight end. Riding is very special. And Darren Waller you give. Everybody said I mean, you gotta put a corner on him. You better double them. But in rug, give them that kind of speed. Like a a Tyreek hill or Cliff Branch. If you will, that you've got to depend every blade of grass. So you know, defensively, I don't think they're air yet. I think they're working their way into that role where they're gonna, They don't have a championship defense. Very few teams do to be honest with you, but at least ostensibly they feel like they could score and score on anyone. Solly, they did manage to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in those two teams are playing against each other again way do you think it's gonna be the same result? Yeah. Don't be a shootout and Terry right now. John Goo just kissed Andy Reid off. You know, he really asked with the victory lap around the stadium thing, and you know a lesson. Um, you taken hang 40 on you and I'm talking about the Kansas City Chiefs. They could do that. I think they've got to take the radar serious. There's no doubt. Um, The Raiders offense is really good. They're the best in the NFL, one third down. I think this is going to be a shoot out. It just depends on if you know which defense decides they want to show up. A request to the board and our database. Coverage all around the league performing below where we saw them perform at last year. So, um, quarterbacks of putting up huge numbers in 2020, and I don't see any reason why that will continue, particularly when you look at this gang all right, something when we come back, We want to ask you a few things about the Miami Dolphins, who is the next opponent for the Denver Broncos. It's Big Al and Joe Joe on K Away news radio traffic every 15 minutes. Here's John Morrissey. Couple crashes off highway Get to those in a minute. Right now.

Your opinion Boulevard Drive is still real Sluggish from I 70 there was a crash north of 56 heading toward the airport on valuable of art that crash, at least out of traffic a little bit.

"These fires that are going on Tom's down in five springs that gets really warm and we talked about the other day Death Valley was 130. Diggory's Possibly the highest recorded Temperature ever. In the history of Planet Earth. It's we're talking about here. So I can't even imagine what it is in Palm Springs today of times dive. It's probably too hot to even play goal for coach floors. Yes, Yes, for sure, but it's got a really warm for him to not play Go. Hideous problem. London can be our AM and FM San Francisco, these forts leader were expected to be joined. Hi Tom Flores Shortly Flores and Drew Pearson were selected as the senior finalist for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2021. We didn't think that Tom was going to make it last time around last year when they In a number of players kind of righted some wrongs. But Tom Flores was not elected to Pearson was very upset. By the way, I think was Josh Dubow who put this out. And when you when you look at stats Probably say they can lie when you don't compare apples to apples. In other words, like Eras of football, But he put out Cliff branches numbers to drew Pearson's numbers, and they're all better across the board. So while Drew Pearson made headlines for the way he reacted to not getting in Cliff Branch can't speak for himself. His his numbers or even better, So Cliff Branch was not on that list. But Pearson was and I would always abdicate for Roger Craig. But we have Tom on in a minute, and that's we want to focus on because I believe Tom deserves to get in. But I do think Cliff Branch deserves to get it. And I do believe I have to Craig deserves to get in. Not that you're a person doesn't just saying Well. Roger Craig played for Bill James. It was a Raider later in his career about you know that because it's timely because Drew Pearson like Tom Stands a good chance to get in after being omitted during the You know the increased class that was supposed to go in a 20. Now we're going to delay it. And so maybe they'll all go in together. And 21. But when you compare Cliff Stats toe Lynn Swann's stats The same argument can be made. So I think with Cliff It's a little like Coach floor is where we take all the Raiders and put him into the Hall of Fame. Well, yeah, if they're good enough, What's the difference that they were that dominant? So Coach. It was certainly feeling great about his chances. And, you know, we talked about it with a guy. We waited too long to get snake in until he passed. And you know, we're gonna knock on wood. As I said. I was texting him yesterday and I started with CEO and and then I deleted it. Just that great news so Hopefully, a year from now we'll introduce him as a Hall of Famer. But right now we've got great news yesterday, so Coach Flores is joining us from farm spring so How do we categorize this news? I don't want to congratulate you yet because there would be the ultimate jinx. But how are you viewing Tom News you got yesterday. Well, I'm unit very positively. Ah. In light of what happened the last couple of years. Ah, vory. Guarded about it going into this year. I didn't know they were doing in this suit soon. Good. All his pandemic stuff going on. And the yesterday my phone started ringing out my sofa with bringing up Ringing and ringing and ringing all morning long while I was sitting in media Thomas's office getting my my mangled by Jack I could even see and I sense there's something going on in the Hall of Fame and When I got out I found out what was going on. They had had this This procedure. So my jazz is Greg. Got to be the best I've ever been, because I'm the only coach of the balls. You don't vote for me who we're not gonna take any coaches it so the way I read if Tom it's about 80% chance that you'll get innovative and quantify a figure and how this will work. No, I don't think they want Teo. But but really, I think even higher than that, But I'm not starting celebrate yet, but I'm excited about it. I have a bit of an emotional Emotionally excited about this news. This is a thrilling And and the best part about it is I'm gonna be around to celebrate it. Absolutely. It's Tom Floors. Floors is joining us. And if you missed it yesterday, he and your peers were selected as senior finalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame class of 2021. We've spoken to you in the past about this and for good reason you're guardedly. Optimistic about it. But But what would it mean? Because some guy say that's not that big of a deal to get in, but it's got to be. It's the ultimate individual honor, is it not? When you figure when you really do the numbers of all the players and coaches And personnel people that have been in this business for 100 years. And and and accomplished whatever they have. And how many few of that percentage wise is in the whole thing More in all of them. It's remarkable. You don't even think about it that way. And that's not just You know? Ah, Blue Ribbon. This is lifetime. This is forever eternity. And It's uh it's quite an honor. It is quite an honor. I think you'd be there. You know, I don't like you.

"For is the African Americans that are playing in the MBA. You know, you even spud Webb and five foot seven you expect? You know, every African American pretty much to be able to Doug and so it became to something that we laughed about it. It wasn't a big deal. It wasn't something that way. Thought it was A It was a catchy name. It was fun. And I'll tell you what the best job to have in the world at least right now. It only may change the Romanian because you can say and get away with anything. Yeah, but that's the thing I don't think you can anymore. And I remember when I saw Don Rickles and he said to the audience Hey, I'm Anu equal opportunity offender That was back in the day Now, I don't know if you could get away with a lot of those jokes. Despite you saying, Hey, I'm an equal opportunity offender because you're not going to be able to get away with certain things. Unless you know your audience, I guess loves you that much. Well, I think again. There's an example ofthe things getting carried away too far. I mean, there's a point at which the, uh yeah, and this is going to come across, probably in a negative way a lot of people, but I mean to stress a point. It's sort of like Cards on the First Amendment gives you the freedom the right to freedom of speech. I don't see anywhere in there where it gives you the right to not be offended. That's just the way human nature is. You anyone can take offense to anything that somebody else that you could take offence to what I'm saying right now and probably come up with some arguments. That would make a lot of sense at a certain point. I think you're going a little bit too far. What That point is, That's another debate that where were you going to far? That's a point of debate as well. For some people. You've gone too far for other people. You haven't gone for him and you're talking about the same statement. There you go. And it want to stroll down memory lane as far staying in the NFL because Sports Illustrated came out with their all time team. They're all time Greatest NFL team. And the Las Vegas Raiders, of course, was then, you know, spend. Hopefully the rest of their time here in Las Vegas, this would be the inaugural season. This would be the 1st 1 here in Vegas were hoping that we do have NFL football. It is the 1976 Oakland Raiders that were voted as the number one team of all time in the NFL despite not being the only undefeated team to 72 Dolphins, the only undefeated team operators God this Yeah, this Raider team lost just one game. They did get pasted in that game 48 to 70 by New England or the greatest team in NFL history or the greatest team in Raiders franchise history. No. The greatest team, according to Sports illustrated during their they just had the Oakland Raiders wanted the 1976 Raiders with a record of 16 wins and one loss as the greatest team. Ever in the NFL. That particular team and that they rolled over. The Vikings, 30 rolled over the Vikings, 32 to 14 a 9 41 winning percentage. Just the one lost in what they thought was of a flu game against New England. They just weren't prepared. They got beat pretty good at New England, but they took care of business and all the rest of their games. And a pretty impressive roster. When you go up and down the roster was Stabler a quarterback and then you add Clarence Davis, Mark Van Egon Peep Bana, Zach Coral Garrett in the backfield. All offensive linemen. This is where this Raider team, really, You know their bread and butter over the years outstanding as Faras, you know, Offensive lineman art shell at left tackle left guard Gene Upshaw right there. The left side of that offensive line was ridiculous. Dave doll be a very solid center right guard was George Buehler and right tackle Big John Villa. They had. Don Medlin. I'm friends with Henry Lawrence, who's one of the few remaining Raiders that one Super Bowl rings in all three radar winds. And Steve Sylvester. That round's about the offensive line in the defense of line with John Matuszak. Dave Ro Otis, his drunk, Charles Philia and her McMath, the linebackers fill Villa Piano. Willie Hall, Mani Johnson. Ted Hendricks, Rodrigo's Barnes, Floyd Rice and Rip on us and then the defensive backs. George Atkinson. Willie Brown. Neil Cole, Ze Jack Tatum, Skip Thomas, My Grind. Felton. Charlie Phillips kicker was Errol Man. Ray guy was the punter and Cole's Ian Garrett, where the punt returner is and kick returner is respectively. Of course. John Madden was the coach and our good pal Tom Flores, assistant coach on that squad. I mean, David Holm, the Vegas product was the backup quarterback to Kenny Stabler, Mike Ray, also on the roster, wide receivers Cliff Branch. Fred Bullet, Nick off Mike Siani. Morris Bradshaw. Tight ends Dave Casper. Warren Bankston. What an outstanding squad When you Andy, I'm telling you, I mean another backups. They may be virtually not known, Teo. People outside of Raider land. But there are you know, several positions you go 23 deep that you know those names because some of those guys progressed on to be starters later on in their Raider career, But that is his impressive A roster from top to bottom, as you will see, so I can understand how they may have arrived at this team being The best team of all times. Way in. Who do they vote? 2345 I did not see that I did not see the order. I just saw the headline. I know I haven't given it much thought since you started, but I'd certainly put the 85 bears above that Raiders team. Okay, well, the You know what I think there'd be some 40 Niners teams that arguably could be up there. I think there were some 15 or 16 to 1 40 Niners teams. I think you could make a case for some of the Steelers team when they won what? Four Super Bowls in a six year period in the seventies. Okay, So here you go. This is according to 5.2 million votes cast during the 60 14 competition with the fifth seeded Raiders, winning the finale over the 2000 although more Ravens By a slim margin of 50.4% to 49.6%. So they had it set up to handle. YEP, more or less. That's AH, that looks like the way it was but 5.2 million votes, so a good size votes coming in And I'll get you off those 5.2 million votes. They're probably well again. I don't obviously where a lot of Raider fans who voted. I'd like to know what the distribution of where those who came in from Well, uh, end of the day to say that it's probably a younger audience. But that's not can't be that young of an audience of a team from 1976. Want what? I'd be curious as to what the fan base was another. Let's say you take the 32 NFL franchises and you give Uh, randomly choose 100,000 fans from each of the franchise. And so you got 3.2 million votes equally distributed. I'd like to see what the results would be. That's a good that's a good contest. Have I agree with that? That's I mean that's the problem with his popularity contest that they're not evenly distributed. Anybody wants the broken vote and Khun vote as many times as often as they want. Now, there may have been limitation toe one vote for email address or one vote for I p address that could have controlled it. But there are still ways to get around it again. I think it's important to know it's almost like, uh, these political poles that were here and you hear the results. Well, let me know what the distribution was off the people who voted. Who were they truly random? Or were they given to, uh, you know, like we know that 50% of registered Republicans and 50% of registered Democrats so that there's ah Oh, and it and it's done not by what you say you are. But what the records show because and that I have a lot of problems with those kind of pulls. It goes. Somebody may just not be giving truthful answers in a political type pole, and we don't know what the distribution is, but in order for it to be a pool that I would at least consider having some value, and by the way, 70 jets Raiders were an awesome team, but I don't know that I would vote them the greatest of all time, But I could understand how fans good Yeah, no doubt, but I do. Ah, I do remember that Raider team and they were dominant. And when you look at the receiving corps how tough they were the linebackers really outstanding group in Villa piano, somebody that potentially could be in the Hall of Fame. Cliff Branch should be in that all of fame Jack Kane and one of the hardest hitters of all times along..

this whole heartedly while I understand at the hall of fame is big for the individual players their families and the teams that they played for as a fan you need a hall of fame you need a museum to validate what you saw if you saw greatness you know that you saw greatness click branch in the tall gives that his numbers are comparable to Lynn Swann since one is in the hall of fame I did read somewhere Tom that for the NFL's hundredth year celebration they're gonna up the hall of fame inductees to close to twenty ten S. southern guys in in in not so current guys maybe cliff branch will will be a part of that unfortunately well my cost treasure no not Bosie does a raider fan back then him and let the cough the two receivers and and and stay where I was and I can't say that I was a huge raider fan because a rams fan but I like branch a lot branches are my favorites in at the deep threat the guy that make you credible catches and then he had bullet the cough they just complimented one another one head sticking wanted they both had typical not sure how political often to get it because of all the back of his hand but it is late I'll be yeah I just that this I like him a lot I was always a wide receiver guide to to lake growing up my favorite players were a fair player was probably Paul Warfield yeah Paul Warfield cliff branch Liam Taylor drew Pearson but those are probably in a go ram to go Billy why the in but those those those four probably Lynn Swann I liked a lot too so those are like my favorite so I just always dug receivers then this Jerry rice guy came along you like yeah so that's yeah I was older at that point I was like twenty one and I was like getting care at that point I was over like toward your kid yeah I kind of war for a post on a room I my work feel poster I I got a book my mom got it for me it was called the football book this is bad for you you can learn about football the internet because there was no internet but that's how you learned about please all kind of stuff cliff branch was in the book re Charlie Taylor's you mentioned he was in the book rebel let me call that I was fascinated by Freddie be then I got to meet a life he's the nicest guy on the planet I always go to the great football players of all time to for meals old school wide receivers when I was growing up because this may shock you Tom of the tall skinny kid right Carmichael of course number eleven for the Philadelphia Eagles like all those eleven I've been he was eleven it was seventeen and then the book view probably right you know and she was you're not everyone some punch me in the wrong either way as I go talk skinny guy can play wide receiver now not every tall skinny guy can put receiver the figure out now it's it's it always works better with somebody six seven that is true but those other routes it's a problem yeah that he was he was really good trying to think I mean John Jeffers I liked a lot all right it does a little of that was like eighties maybe not quite mid seventies he was seventy with a seventeen trying to think who else there was a did Warfield fully was on that team as like me or whatever yeah Gilliam I dug he was forty two Warfield was forty two branch forty one this one eighty eight I think Taylor was forty two I think they're like they're like three like really good receivers are forty two back then and I kind of dug the forty two is is just like a weird wide receiver number like you never see guy I don't even think what does is go where forty two anymore they gets mostly your safeties that that are forty two but yeah I remember those three PM forty two they need you your eighty eight Suan and Pearson with eighty eight then branch is one of the bore with twenty one but who knows a writer of the only difference is twenty one other than cliff brands but I was yeah I I was trying to think like who other than those guys because those are like my favorite I even at a book at the awards

I was watching this go. Of deserve to be there. Now, don't they? Yeah. That was impressive. I mean, that's the whole thing because you feel for TCU and Gary Patterson, but then when Ohio State gets in and they find a way to win it all and take out the number one team in the process was pretty impressive guarantee.

I know you're you're you're young though, do you know who rod Martin is for the raiders the name rings a bell. Okay. It should if you know your Super Bowl history. Rod Morton is the only guy in Super Bowl history with three count them three interceptions. In one game. Intercepted your C three times. Times in the raiders win in nineteen eighty over the Philadelphia Eagles back when jaws and the eagles, and they all thought they had it. But somehow that raiders stick was alive and well back then now the cool thing is that. And I don't know if you knew this did you Davis Mark Davis had? Betrayed Mark on Las Vegas raiders back in nineteen ninety nine. I did not. But I fully believe that the instant that the news broke. It was official raiders come to Vegas. My only thought was Al Davis is dancing in his grave right now. Because this is the most Aldea this move in the history of the Oakland Raiders.

"You're going to can't there's eight of senior pool and most of them have never even been discussed. What did? That due to take off the board that they wouldn't be discussed and wouldn't be put in. So if we get this amnesty class or the centennial class to call it, and they give us ten or fifteen spots. I think that will go along way toward breaking the logjam of seniors and still if we took a top fifteen we still have sixty five decade players in the senior pool of which we bring out one and two year the river doesn't run fast enough. You are one of these guys does a lot of studying both of the numbers, and of the guys who aren't in who you believe should be who are the next level three to five guys who in your opinion of senior seniors who need to be discussed to you feel like really need to be Kenny Anderson's best quarterback not in the hall of fame. Kenya should be discussed. Alex Karras was a first team all decade player all decade tackle, sixties, the other two Merlin Olsen. Bob, Marley were first. Ballot. Scarce has never been in the room. L western offense attack in Philadelphia champion teams of the forties. First team. All deca guy hasn't been in Ken rarely second all time among Cornerbacks pure corners interceptions. Never been discussed sixty five intercepts intercept sixty five passes. How're you never discussed? So those those are probably the group that there's a ton of offense lineman. Ed, white great. Guard from from San Diego and the Vikings just. Just. Nice me on my two pit guys. Joe Klecko and cliff branch. Cliquot? I'm surprised we haven't discussed Cliquot to this point one of the just for everybody who doesn't know. Joe klecko? I believe is the only player in NFL history to have made the Pro Bowl at three different positions defensive end defensive tackle nose. Tackle. I think Joe is his name is turned up recently in the grouping players were discussing for the seniors and his time may becoming the cliff branch issue. I think the one issue that I've got is that right now there are eleven raiders and a coach from the seventies in the hall of fame that team went to one Super Bowl. The Steelers won four Super Bowls have nine players in. So you wanna put a twelfth grader in? I mean why why didn't the raiders win four in the Steelers win one? So I think standalone canned cliff branch hall of Famer can stabilize Famer regattas hall of Famer, but collectively how can you put twelve guys in from one team that went to one circle in decade? Last question for you. Is you sort of look at the hall right now. If I gave you a magic wand to make one sort of either rules change or one thing that you think could make either the voting process better make the hall better. What do you think you'd do? I think I would have the hall put together a blue ribbon panel to produce the slate of finalists because right now, it's become the demise newspapers. The voting board has gotten so young. And a lot of people started covering football in the one thousand nine hundred thousand decade, they don't remember the eighties forty Niners. Seventy Steelers sixties Packers. I'd have a blue ribbon panel. Get get the best football. Get get Parcells get Ron Ron woolfe. Get all the good football and give us the slate. And then let this committee vote on that slate. They may have a guy from the fifties. Give us the fifteen best guys. Not in canton. Not the fifteen most recent guys like or Goslin. Thanks a lot should be a fun Super Bowl. Really? Appreciate you. Taking the time. Always my pleasure..
