Special Comment: Bears QB competition winner

"The Mitchell, trubisky wins the. CHICAGO BEARS NFL quarterback starting NFL quarterback competition, the competition that all of the experts. The competition that all of the experts told me or told US bears fans that. Mitch had no chance of winning Mitch has no opportunity of winning I. Never Been That satisfied and disappointed since the cody parkey double don't. And if I need to go back further the net to prove my up authentic bears fan this. I've been at happy disappointed since. Devin. Hester in the kickoff back in scored a touchdown. In Super Bowl. Only to yeah. And that was a huge difference in quarterback match up, and I was the one who said as should be rex Grossman over coward. Rex Grossman is our quarterback. In that camp yes I was J cutler. He made my heart stop a beat every time he dropped back to throw my heart didn't skip would be just didn't beat at all. My breath was held and all of the things that they say that you shouldn't do any time ever hear he if you would like to survive if you liked to hold on if you would like to just do all the things, not things that make you feel good. Definitely not the things to make you happy. Just do all of the things that will make a will produce a winning football team or how about this how about this it will produce a touchdown on dry consistently more often than not. That's not too much to ask for but apparently it is apparently it is I. Don't know how does became a bears quarterback situation. This is not even I told you. So Mitchell trubisky being a quarterback this is. Why do I listen to people that don't know what they're talking about listening to people that don't know anything when it comes to WHO's actually going to start who actually is going to play? They have a better chance. They have a better opportunity than I do buy juice flipping a corn and saying, let the chips fall where they may. It is what it is. Is Always. Manny being manny. You have dialed is not in service at this time.

Bama Vs Clemson

"Nasa championship. Two and Trevor saving and Swinney hunter red Roe versus the AARP. And if wildcard we. Oh, my on the floor. Let's go around the horn. Going endorse. One common script for wildcard weekend. What were they thinking? Every losing teams play calling and the referees with their own calling place. But for the Chicago Bears, Cody parkey, there was only one thing they were thinking, please don't please don't not again the history. Here is inconceivable Louis pose from Cody parkey years ago, describing how he used to practice by hitting a life host the five doling from earlier this season the late night practice escorts soldier feel with news. Chopper overhead and now the two here to end the season Trayvon has got its of itself at the line. There's the how Nick foles again and how the champs move on the team nobody wants to play. But I how the bears process this Jaeger inch icago how should the city swallow this today. Well, they should be most is the point because the defense let them down, you know, bears fans love their depends monsters of the midway and all that. And this game was in the defenses and to secure the victory, and they couldn't come through allowing the eagles drive sixty yards for the go ahead score. And the defense let them down throughout the game. Honestly because they didn't make the adjustments. Jason Peters day tremendous job and his with Khalil Mack. So how about over loading that side sending some extra Russia's from that side taking advantage of your best pass rusher who was handled in single coverage. So I'm gonna put it on the defense, which is supposed to be the heart and soul of this team. You ask your defense to win the game. You should be comfortable being in position for them to win it for you with a couple of plays. They could not sell your headline isn't Cody parkey double joins your headline is the defense. Donkin here some great puns based off it hitting it off the upright claims for the memories, they said in Philadelphia daily news, great headline material. But the real story that they gave should be this Kevin Blackstone. Cody Parker outscored arrest of the offense. He was three for four with his field goals yesterday. It was the offense that letdown Chicago and put everything all the pressure on the defense. Now, the defense did a pretty good job all day long up until that drive where they let fulls be the foles from a year ago until that time they had controlled him. They had controlled this game. But the offense had to come through and help the rest. The other phases of the of the game. They had to help defense. They had to help special teams. They didn't do it. Didn't put out your headline is bears offense fails them. And that's why they're season is over. I saw you're shaking your head. No, go ahead. Now Kevin that that's unfair. First of all the offense gave them the lead. And then Trubisky drove them into position for the game winning kick. So the field goal kicker there that is a very makeable kick. That's when you have to make. And we know that he hasn't made it that being said the strength of this team is the defense and what they're going to remember from this season is twelve place sixty yards. That's what Nick Boles. Did. He converted a third and nine and then a fourth and two the go ahead score the strength of the team was defense. And at the moment of truth at home. They're like, okay. So all this outsized reaction from Chicago about the kicker, Cody parkey, and we went through this this year when he had four and a game the escorts the soldier feel for that lay die practice where there was a chopper overhead, and we couldn't show you the video because the bears didn't want that video out. You think this is about the defense? How about you Georgy sedan? Tony. I don't know what Franken J been doing over the holidays. Maybe hanging out in the Don day lounge too much having a few extra cocktails during the holidays. But this is all about the offense. Katie's right. Look party scored nine points. The rest of that often scored six points the defense. The only allowed sixteen points they'll up seventeen point seven during the regular season. One scoring drive out of eleven Matt Nagy supposed to be this offense of genius. Where was the genius yesterday? Thought the time management in the end of this game was also problematic. Yeah. The time management particularly on the defensive side. He wasted thirty or forty seconds, basically on the clock not calling timeouts earlier than you should have. I don't understand what he was doing there. It was very obvious. He was a rookie coach and a player heard. I've heard this complaint as well. But my my point to that would be they had enough time to get down the field to have a very makeable field goal, Frank. I you're nodding in agreement. Go ahead. That's the exact point Trubisky in his first ever playoff game scored in the fourth quarter gave them the lead. Then after they fell behind. He drew them into position for a mate c-a-b-a kick. You guys are making. It seem like they were trying to make a sixty art field goal. That was a makeable kick. I'm playing the offense the offense in the fourth quarter did their job defense special teams that made it was he made it before he was ice. Here's my point on that kick. Right. Matt Nagy knows kicker as missed double digit kicks this season. And he knows where he likes to be on the field where he doesn't like to be on the field. So he knew all that going into it. I don't think it was a lack of time that got them there bears had plenty of time. They used their time out on that last Dr. As well. So so I just wanna get this clear. Nobody's blaming Cody parkey for this loss. Nobody that's okay. Wait a second. On right, George. Go ahead. Please. Okay. I would blame him a little bit. You know, look there are some of the comparisons being made are like Bartman esque, I wouldn't go Bartman s what I would do is blame the guy after Bartman, if we remember in Chicago, Alex Consol the shortstop booted a ball after that that would have ended that inning. That's to me the comparison with Cody Parker. He does have some blame. Even though it looked like it might have been tipped a little bit. But at the end of the day, this is the NASCAR even Bill bug on this. Barmy can slide on down like the old Johnny Carson show. He can move seed over now because he we do have a new prison replacing atop the Chicago sports fan most wanted list, but think about it pharma didn't lose their series. They had a whole game seven to win it back, and they had other opportunities to win this. Blair was four years ago with Minnesota in a game playoff game home game against Seattle made is first three kicks missed a chip shot late by the following November. He struggled. He ended up getting released. You wonder how much this performance the this surely will we seen this in this sport we've seen this with this position? We've seen this all over the place. So done I'm going to oppose you hear the idea that there needs to be somebody to blame needs to be somebody on lines of blame here. I mean inexperienced team playing at home but inexperienced team young team lost the playoff game to the defending champs that couldn't be enough. That could be the headline here the eagles, by the way have to be a team. Nobody wants to play right now. I got news for this entire panel except Frank solely filial Friday. Frank sola. Dan, you had Sikado shows up. It's gonna be a wave of relations with the Nick foles run continues. These Peterson love on for down. Tin. Tin us and the eagles defense and secondary specifically coming together. Like, nobody saw possible. This is got to be more than magic. Right. This is a schematic experiential reason why this is happening. Tony, Nick, foles one four playoff games. And this one was on the road, and he was behind in the fourth quarter. You think about what he did in the Super Bowl last year against wind and what he did yesterday. And they're going to have a big choice on their hands off season. They can resign. Carson wentz. Save a little money on the salary cap. How you not gonna bring it falls back. What more does he do? He's four and oh in the playoffs and who knows maybe five six seven five six seven. And now you're getting your head yourself a little bit which I'm fine with please go ahead. Why would you doubt Nick foles at this point? But this conversation for you is about what they're going to do in the off season. I think we could hit pause in that just for a moment Blackstone. How is this happening with Nick foles? Well, it's happening Nick foles because his team gave him an opportunity. I was just talking about offense. Let's talk about defense. This is an eagles team that got blown away by New Orleans back in November at that time. Their defense was ranked twentieth. At the end of the year. It was ranked twelve and you saw the saw. The difference yesterday. They had pressure all over Trubisky. They were able to keep their team in there. And when it was time for Nick foles to come through he came through now the rest of the game. He was not very good through a horrible pick into the end zone knew he wanted to take that when back, but for that one time he had that opportunity and he came through Sunday. I think the eagles are passed the hard part of the season. A hard part was getting back to the playoffs. Now that they're they're they have confidence they believe they know their quarterback and get it done in crunch time. He's proven he's got a Super Bowl MVP trophy sitting at to crimp. So this team is really playing pressure-free football. And they believe in themselves, and they can believe in their coach unlike say the bears Matt Nagy shorts Donald. You talk to people around the league there and particularly people in Philadelphia, Tony they tell you the Doug Peterson simplifies the offense when Nick foles is in there. I don't understand why he doesn't do that. With Carson Wentz to be honest with you. But that's the biggest issue that they have. And let's face it. You mentioned Super Bowl champions. Okay. He want a couple of games last year where they were ugly. Right. He didn't necessarily win them. The team won them. Particularly the defense. The defense doesn't get enough credit their mantra should be ugly, but affect okay that works, right? That absolute works. What why would you doubt Nick foles at this point even going to game against the New Orleans Saints? Why would you doubt Nick foles at this point? I don't understand that. And that conversation you wanna have Frank about the future of this team? And whether it's with foles with Carson Wentz anybody right now one go with Frank there and say fulls could be the future of this team's Danna. Oh, I listen come on, man. Let's be real here Carson Wentz. Unless Nick foles another Super Bowl. There's no way on the table. That's on the table. Here's the thing. Fullish that he is. And the you've got to go with the kid. The kid is the guy that was almost an MVP last year before he got her. It's not like he's had these surgeries or whatnot or injuries that are going to strive. He clearly be able to come back from it said it conversation for another day. We'll move on to the wild card weekend in NFL in buyer sell now age let me hear it. Tonight's national championship. Only match up you need even the most ardent playoff expand. Or knows. That's the case. If you're Clemson Alabama somebody's finishing your fifteen. And for the first time in football this the cheetah victory. The most important thing in tonight's game. George go ahead. Oh, the most important things the quarterback play. You look at two. He's got forty one touchdowns. Four picks this year Trevor Lawrence no slapped by the way, twenty seven touchdowns himself. And I think this is going to be one of these games where whoever has the ball last. Tony is going to win. This thing. Defense is dead, basically. Okay. As much as we how great Alabama's players are on defense. And they are they're great individual players Clinton is great individual players. They'll be a bunch of first round picks that are coming out of those defenses. But the way college football is now it's all about the offense and how many so every new Iran. Alabama's front seven front. Four is going to dominate this game decide how this game is one. You say that throw that out the window? There is no defense whoever has the ball last. And you Don, Georgia's right? The key is the quarterbacks, but Trevor Lawrence isn't the dual threat to Shawn Watson was when when clips beat Alabama. The Shawn Watson rush twenty one times only forty three yards, but you have to think that dual threat kept Alabama's defense. Bows, travelers has only rush fifty four times all season. So he's not the threat to run. And I think Alabama could really key on him in the pocket. Unlike when the match this game. Well, the metrics decided is going to be the running game of Clinton they average two hundred and fifty yards running. And they put the ball in Travis SE ns hands. That's something that they did not have before as j just kind of mentioned. So I think whether or not they can run the ball effectively also controlling the clock which can give their defense some rest and get the ball into the end zone that way, I think that can change the ten that's the pet victory over Clemson. Did you see that happening? I think so. Yeah, I think they gotta do that. And none of that. You just look at Alabama's last game. How they let eight oh you get back into the game. I mean, they've had some struggling guy. So yeah, I see that. Clemson has to get to the quarterback. They sacked the quarterback fifty two times. He's here now too. We know not really one hundred percent with that ankle that he has not the same quarterback like most quarterbacks when he gets pressured obviously, his percent completion percentage goes down to me that will be the key. But I just think that Alabama whenever they lose. It seems like a fluke when they're trailing at half time. It seems like a fluke. I just think they're too dominant. Alabama tonight. You wanna give us a score Franken? Thirty four black Saul. Clemson thirty one third. Thirty twenty seven and George you've got like the the final being seventy two seventy right. Forty one thirty Alabama break ground. Technology truth brought to you by. Truth. You will certainly any text about your supervisor to your supervisor. What's Janet's fangs? Did she lose that? With a weed whacker? Oh, Sint, wait. No, no, no, no, no truth. It's so easy to switch and save on car insurance at geiko dot com. Janet, I think my phone was hacked or something. Gogo fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more back to around the horn coming to you from the Heineken river decade here seventeen. Angeles targets. I'm waiting with baited breath for somebody to call them the team. Nobody wants to play in these playoffs who you're the start with the ravens and John harbors assertion sticking to the Mark Jackson was the right? Call George buyer sell. I'm buying it. He's going to have to coach next year. He's still the coach, but he's the future. Joe flacco not ravens fans and flacco. Anyway, just a few weeks ago. Because they made it clear that flakowitz under plans next year that I'm selling this because why not give it a shot. Nothing was going your way. You don't have to worry about the mar- Jackson a quarterback country in the off season. If flacco on his way out lag stone, I'm buying it. You needed a quarterback with mobility did stay out of that rush? And the other thing is the fourth quarter. He's the best quarterback in the NFL this year in terms of quarterback Sola almost showed it having. They were down twenty three to three in the fourth quarter. That's why you had to Joe fly over making it sound like he's chop. Liberty did win a Super Bowl. He was the MVP give Anthony Lynn the coach of the charges a lot of credit plate with seven defensive backs. Most last what it was right. I want to ask this would you argue that the struggles yesterday were first career postseason start teams catching up to him. Or was it schematic Frank? I think it's all of that, you know, he's a rookie quarterback. And I think that's why you go to the more experienced guy if you can take Clayton Kershaw out of a World Series game. Why can't Lamar Jackson? Come out of a playoff game. It's still be the datum shaking your head. It's ridiculous. K be hit it on the head. I mean look at that pass. Rush was Perot shit. There's no way Joe flacco the statue is going to be able to avoid that will move vire sell to Cavaliers in the discussion to be in the conversation to be a team. Nobody wants to play this postseason. How much of this was Dallas. And the defense how much of it was Seattle insistence upon run run and never unleashing. Russell wilson. Give credit to the Dallas deepest not relaxed frightened that see ran the ball twenty four times, even though they weren't going anywhere. But look what Dallas did to the top rushing offense in the NFL. Just look what they did at home against the top three scoring offense with the saints Gabi. Yeah. I mean, you have to with that. I mean, that's the big difference with Seattle this year. You know last year. Russell Wilson led them in rushing this year, they had a full prom attack and the and the Cowboys absolutely shut it down. But sometimes you wonder about their head coach. Who's a who seems to be the brightest smartest coach until he does something talking about your questioning calling here to run run. It seemed like I second run run. And it was right into the middle of the line. I still out you let me give you a little advice the Super Bowl you have marshawn Lynch run the ball at the goal in this case against Dallas on the road. You have Russell Wilson throw the ball, especially on first down. I thought their game plan backfired big good job identity. Russell Wilson is a top five in the league. He's arguably the best improvisational QB in the league run shy. Brian Schottenheimer gross mismanagement of the offense. If his last name wasn't Schottenheimer. He wouldn't get any more chances to run a mediocre off. Gross mismanagement. Is there any other side? We'll move virus three colts. Anybody wanna play the colts in the bow season? Anybody wanting to test their luck now same question how much was in the how much was Houston TV. This was all I think the cold. I mean, this is what to be looking at the last ten or eleven weeks. They've been real enough WFW. They got a top ten defense top ten offense in Andrew lucked is bad. I. Yeah. I came for Shawn Watson, he really struggled. But they protect Andrew luck. Here's a guy that has one of playoff game before he looks terrific. And that deepens of Indianapolis is for real watch out Kansas City. I don't. Frank Reich rent circles around the Bella chick boys of override incre now, this is all about the cold since their one in five star the best record in the NFL. They'd had the best point differential in the NFL. And they're often line, which was much maligned is awesome. Running the ball and protecting. Watson the Texans did not look prepared for NFL playoff football. Once they got their feet under them. They were. Okay. The second half. Right. The Cotonsport check second half. So it's not like the cold or this overwhelming offensive presence. They came in. I didn't think the cold. Complete control. The irony of that game. It sound like George scores. Techni be are on this cold bandwagon and ready with me. I'm not not putting any worse out there. But they play Kansas City expert say something right now, I'll say I think the way to go. All right. That's enough to get Clack stone into showdown, but Frank solar George Sodano twenty seven. Bang. This throw at the record book that you never kept to begin with good luck. Gentlemen showdown one firing after twenty two point win to own the teams. George your right with Minnesota's iming year. The timing is ridiculous. But it shouldn't be a surprise. Because really everything Minnesota's done outside of draft. Kevin garnett. And those subsequent years has been pretty ridiculous, though, tips did deserve to get fired. They probably should have fired him before the Jimmy Butler trade. Deserve before. He got there. They had missed the playoffs. Twelve straight years. Now, you have the owner saying we're looking at the results really all of a sudden the results mattered you. Well last year, you won forty seven games made the playoffs and by the way since Jimmy Butler tha that they're fifteen and twelve so the results have actually been pretty good good stat work from Frank solo. Then that's how you get a point showdown will move on show now to science three sixty. Versus Dwayne Wade's. No, look alleyoop. What was play the weekend break? I'll say the Miami one for the Miami guy. But come on every times, I on Williamson does something. Let's remember the guy is to eighty five for him to get a bad easy to perform something like that. It's ridiculous that it's only January and some people getting bored with it. I'm not bored with it pretty impressive. Zion. Williamson hit his head on the backboard one time. That's the most amazing thing. He's ever done to be honest with you. Dwayne Wade is known teric Jones junior for like thirty seconds and was able to alleyoop it to imperfectly delays veteran move, you need to have a firm relationship with somebody in order to throw Elliott. Points right guy solo there it is. That's the. All right with the final college football game tonight. We can turn our attention to college basketball, the top twenty five came out, and guess who crack Saint John's Chris mall and ride over the bridge. Right. Here's where Chris and grew up they beat Georgetown on Saturday in overtime. They haven't made the tournament since twenty fifteen and right now, they're fourteen to one their only loss a last second shot against Seton Hall. So it looks like Christmas, and it's finally gotten things turned around. And who knows maybe it's good, buddy. Patchy school will get Georgetown in the tournament as well. Like the old Saint John's Georgetown back in Cali John going over this week at Villanova damore. That's a good one. I sold the with the wind that's going to do it, folks. Thanks for coming around. We're on a twenty three and a half hour break where my Boston College ladies at.

Bruce n last the podcast. We'll get to the NFL's most unstoppable for the white walkers of west roast actually reside in FOX run. I get the white walkers. Don't actually hail from west rose. I guess technically. I dunno game. I have to get caught up on game of thrones. They just announced season eight final seasons date yesterday. I'm a little jacked up about that. I'm a little terrified of what's to come in the AFC playoffs. But I also know that this morning, I can say one thing, and I can feel pretty comfortable about it that amidst all the things that we're going to get do from the NFL playoffs this weekend. The divisional round. With a lot of people. Call the best week of football all year that unfortunately, I don't think lived up to that billing with the quality of some of the games. What it did live up to was producing the four best teams in football. Going into the last stretch of the tournament. When you look at the New England Patriots, the New Orleans Saints, the OSs Angeles Rams and the Kansas City. Chiefs moving on the one common thread that ties them all together. Is the one thing we talked about all year. The one thing we tried to get away from in the second half of the season. But the one thing we cannot avoid is that offense is winning games right now. Offense wins championships. That is going to be the bottom line. That's is going to be two thousand eighteen in two thousand and nine thousand nine hundred NFL season. Takeaway. But this morning there are a lot of unhappy. People waking up in the city of brotherly love except for one. I know eagles fans were enjoying this ride. I know the today is not going to be well received in that scoring fourteen points to start that game. And then never really managing to piece together some bit of offense again after that has got to be particularly devastating unless you Carson Wentz. Like Carson Wentz. Deep down employs. He didn't talk about a parties waking up this morning. Little bit of a smile on his face a guard. Right. I don't have. I don't have to deal with the biggest what if that was hanging over any team in the course of this playoffs was what if Nichols? Does it again because five minutes into that game yesterday? I thought oh my God. We're going to have a patriots eagles Super Bowl again. Nick foles is on his way to another Super Bowl and BP. And all the sudden I'm gonna have starting all those words about well. The eagles they've got their quarterback. This just a nice story like to to Super Bowl runs later in the nice story. And you gotta start asking a bunch uncomfortable questions that now the eagles get out from under. And now Carson Wentz doesn't have to hear about anymore because twenty and a half million dollars later Nick foles will not be on the Philadelphia Eagles next season. But man, we got close I last year on ESPN radio presented by progressive insurance drivers switched to progressive can save an average of six hundred and sixty eight dollars. Now, part of the reason that is the case. Is because that offense stalled out and that offense with a big chance and in a couple of big moments gave the ball back to the New Orleans Saints, most notably alshon Jeffery that ball the went through his hands into Marshon Lattimore hands in a couple of plays, quite frankly by Marshon Lattimore that turned around this entire game. But hear was Sean Jeffrey on yesterday dropping that pass it ultimately led to the interception. How Sean can you take us through plus play there? Planned in may. I may went to my hands. Catch the ball. Gotta make downplayed us on me. I'll take that loss on me. But not as now sitting city of Philadelphia. That's on me. I'll take it. And you heard the pain there. This is Iran Nissen of one play that ultimately. Feels responsible for the game. But we know isn't. But when it's something like this, it feels eerily reminiscent of what the eagles on the other side of the field with Cody parkey in the bears just a week ago where you've got one player who largely feels like he carries the weight of a loss coming out of the game. But we know that's never the case. We know obviously, there are a lot of guys in that locker room that support him including their head coach Doug Peterson who spoke about alshon Jeffery in that drop after the game. It's hard. I mean, it's really hard because he so he so down, but you know, for me about staying positive, and listen, he's made many many big catches for us to season and continue. He he will continue to do that. And I just told them he's got he's got to keep his head up. And and don't let one play define you. You know, it's not who he is. He's he's too good of a player and. He needs to and he's he'll embrace it. You know, obviously. But you know, and he'll be better for it. But told him just to keep his head up and keep keep plowing. We'll see if alshon Jeffery has a good Morning America appearance coming up next, and well, obviously there will be support there. Obviously everyone in that eagles locker on morality together. I still hold true. That Carson Wentz will wake up this morning and breathe. The biggest sigh of relief of anyone in that city. Now on the other side of the ball. We could talk about the winners. We can talk about the New Orleans Saints who are the biggest bunch of trolls on God's green earth. These guys after that game a game in which quite frankly, the beginning, they were shellshocked you could see across everyone's face. You could hear it in the Superdome. There was an uncomfortable tension in that game at the beginning. When it looked like Nick foles in all that magic was going to go down. Now for this New Orleans Saints team going forward that I thought for most of the season was the best and most complete football team on both sides of the balls. After that weird start they've shown you they can win ugly, which is good. My question is for whatever reason that offense has not looked quite itself. And I get the quality of the Ponant has jumped up to. That's what happens in the playoff as we whittle this thing down, but you really feel like towards the end of the season as much as we're going to talk about the quality of offense of teams for whatever reason. And whether that's been the attrition at wide receiver for the saints. That didn't really get as much of a bump from Ted Ginn coming back right away as we had hoped or as saints fans. Would hope I should say. You've got some real questions about what can happen there is they go into an NFC championship game against a team. That's going to be able to roll it out there in droves on offense as well. That much we saw from the Rams against the Cowboys that will get to. But drew Brees. This game was really defined on finding creative ways to win including some absolute pedal to the metal play calls from Sean Payton. I mean, how absurd what happened yesterday was cannot be overstated aware they call that fake punt from with tastes in hill. That was one of the plays that also helped to turn around that game. The look they called that against this was some of Sean Payton's best coaching in that game to be able to say, I have the utmost confidence in my team in these situations even situations you would not normally do this in. I know Dan Orlovsky what our ears PIN NFL analyst talks at length about earlier in the season. Frank Reich, making a call to go for a two point conversion in a situation or a fourth down conversion in a situation that ultimately turned around the cold season in his mind because it sends a message to everyone that this is the kind of confidence I have in my team well with Sean Payton and what he put on display yesterday. Whether it was multiple fourth-down calls on the drive that ultimately decided the game for the saints. Whether it was that fake punt that again when you have a fake that goes in on special teams play over the course of a game. There are looks that you run that fake against. And there are looks where the personal protector tastes him hill in this situation would come up and call the fake off the eagles left. They're starting defense, or at least the majority of it out on the field for that play. They were in what's called safe where you're expecting a fake. So you. Leave the professional defenders out on the field. And the saints still ran the bleeping fake. Drew Brees the saints quarterback on Sean Payton's play calling for this game. Then then we're Sean long enough now to to say that he's always been like that, you know, for most six until now, I think he's just I think it's it's something that he knows that knows that the offense and the team feeds off of you know, just like calling me onside kick in the Super Bowl, right ambush. It was not a matter of if we're going to call. It was win right? And that's just it. That's the relationship that he has. But it's a reminder for each incarnation of the team that for everyone. That's not drew Brees and doesn't have the benefit of that they know Sean Payton. But man once you get into this stretch of the season for all those young players looking around go. Oh, that's the guy. That's the guy that's coaching us in all of this. That's the kind of confidence he has. How can we mere and reflect that and you see it in the team? Like, again, the biggest bunch of trolls left in the playoff might reside in New Orleans after the game Alvin Kamara Mark Ingram doing the interview and scheme ask which by the way, they should be required to wear into the stadium. If you're going to wear them after the game Cam Newton doesn't bring two outfits to the podium for winter losing. All right winter lost Cam Newton's wearing the same outfit. He rolled up. And so at the very least if you're going to roll over one you troll them before the game all chips in the middle of the table. Whether it's that, whether it's these the Twitter livestream of themselves. Writing the locker room with dreams and nightmares. Which is a nod to meek mill Philadelphia area rapper known Philadelphia sports fan like this team is going to pull no punches. That's the attitude in this locker room, it's reflected by their coaches. Like, those things are very real first and last podcast. Frankly, I'm disgusted that we ever really thought they leave like how dumb are we how do we keep letting this happen? I don't understand how we keep letting this happen with New England where it seems like they're dead. We're we're ready to write them off. And we're actually dumb enough to think we're going to happen. And the worst part now is we ticked them off. A quote, we'll we'll get to Tom Brady. And what he said after the game that sounds ridiculous, but should scare the ever loving bleep out of you. It's first and last by junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app and going into this weekend. I was finally ready to do it. I was the one who have sat here for God knows how long at this point and said, there are just certain teams that until they spit the bit fully and truly. I'm not picking against didn't pick against Alabama and the national championship game this year net didn't work out for me. And I was so shocked and jarred by what happened to the crimson tide when they face Clemson than I thought, you know, what I'm gonna do it. This is the year. We've seen a couple of tremors from the New England Patriots. We've seen them look a little bit less than themselves. We've seen them lose in places that we normally wouldn't this be the year. I'll call it. And I let my love of Philip rivers and is. Wheelbarrow full of children is bolo ties and everything about wanting to see that for someone else in this spot. And I left that all get in the way the fact that this is still the New England Patriots. And they are still doers of the damn thing. Now. This is what I think becomes the most interesting coming out of this is to fold is the patriots advancing now to their eighth straight AFC championship game with the victory over the chargers. They're extending their own record in this case. The patriots are the one man version of what we've been dealing with in college football. And I don't know are we as mad at the patriots as we are at Clemson at Alabama. For constantly showing up in this place for more often than not being the Super Bowl answer. Do we get enough variables from the rest of this? Because the NFL was chalk. Again, we talked about the one and two seeds finding their way in to the final four for this the wild car weekend, essentially, render meaningless after everything that happened this past weekend and the patriots lead the charge and all that. But it didn't feel quite that way. And you know, why it is because y'all offense we'll get to the the overriding point coming out of all this as you look at the final four, and you look at what they have in common. It all lies in the offense of side of the football. Her all that about you can win defense and a run game and all these different things. Now, man, you got to put up points and you got to put up points in droves. And that is what we've got going on. It's first and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app now on one side of this for the losing team. We have got the ever frustrated Philip rivers who looked like us on fire for the majority of the game yesterday. They just played better. I don't know anything with extra extra week. They played better. I don't know that they did a ton of stuff defensive surprises. I drive like I said we answered scored. And and we did some things, you know, we we got the midfield every every possession in that first half just about. But then we just all you know, lack of some third down conversions not as efficient on first and second down. But. When it comes to an end, you know, we can analyze it. All we won't. They scored more points than we did. And they were the better team today. Accurate analysis for me frustrated and beat up Philip rivers. Like man watching Philip rivers double over in pain for towards the end of that game as Trey flowers again. And again found his way into his lap. Like the patriots defensive performance today yesterday. I cannot say enough about that team took V weakness of the chargers and the right side of that offensive line and really their offensive line in general in the interior an absolutely throttled them there. They did the patriot thing like we kept sitting around here going. Oh, yeah. Me peanut brain on the other side saying look with the chargers did last week adjusting their defensive personnel going and making the changes necessary to adapt and beat eighteen like the ravens. And then the patriots said hold my beer, we do this for real and the patriots came out, and they ran twists, and they ran stunts and they got in Philip rivers face all damn day. And they're great players in the back end were great. And offensively that team shoved the ball directly down. Los Angeles is throat. It was it was impressive. And we don't give the Trent Brown acquisition. They're left tackle that. They basically coaxed out of retirement over in San Francisco over there to be large and in charge on the left side of their line. Rob gronkowski looked healthier than we had seen in a while. And you heard him in the bump back there. But as gronk said, even he gets a chance to enjoy this one the game is over and you haven't started preparing for next week it. So he thought right now about that. My thoughts about right now. Then I'm gonna have to enjoy the win. That's what we do. You get one night to enjoy the win actually around here, you do you get one night? And then when you wake up tomorrow morning, and it's on the Kansas City. So get a couple of hours. So I'll be doing that. And then I'll be thinking about next week. And while that's the fun sound that we get to hear because we know the way gronk enjoys games. And so you have to imagine the way the gronk enjoys wins matches that in a way that terrifies Bill bell Jack a bit considering Bronx physical state for most of the season. But no, no, no, it's it's what Tom Brady told you after the game yesterday that should scare the ever loving hell out of you. It's the thing like everything about the patriots threatens to render the rest of the NFL season meaningless. They are truly the white walkers for you game of thrones fan, the white walkers represent all of our fear in the series that nothing that has happened for the rest of the plotline will matter because this one. Unstoppable force will come in a raise everything at the end of this. That is what the patriots truly threatened to be. This is season eight of game of thrones. And the patriots are at the helm Tom Brady is the night king. And when he stood up yesterday at the end of the game and said, well, people think we stink. And don't think that we can win any games. So we'll see what happens that was the window into his soul you needed. This is a slighted patriot outfit. They're a patriot outfit. The despite canceling the noise better than any team. Here's everything that you were saying about them, and they're mad and that scares the hell out of me first.

Fifty seven coming up in about ten minutes. Talk about one man trying to secure his bag by any means necessary in a way that I can only stand in applaud the kick heard round the world and why put on football pants for the first time in six years this weekend. Good lord. But first time for straight talk. Brought to you by straight talk wireless. Best phones, best networks, no contracts and. Man, when we look at this weekend in the NFL, I was struck by this yesterday because so much of this year felt like we're waging war for the NFL soul. When it came to how you win how you win in eight league for so long has been held up by cliches like the NFL is a place where cliches can live they can feel comfortable. It's like a retirement community for cliches in one of the most overwhelming cliches has always been defense wins championships closely followed by established the run all these things are important. All these things quite frankly are important to the teams I'm going to mention, but these are also teams in the final four in the saints. The patriots the Rams and the chiefs that this year have in different ways, especially the Rams and the chiefs been part of conversations about the future of the NFL about the offense is about the decisions that we've seen quite frankly made and reflective in the coaching hires. This offseason and the vast overreaction and these major shift in the way that we approach how you build teams. But there's a reason a very concrete reason, it's Lindsey theory tweet this yesterday. So defense wins championships. No the top four scoring teams in the NFL season. This year reached the conference championship round this per ESPN, stats and info one through four the chiefs. The Rams the saints and the patriots are your top for scoring off scoring teams in the NFL this season. However, you want to slice it. The best offense of teams are in this. Did also say that no top-five scoring defense this season even made the final eight. So we saw there was a ceiling where is much as you want to accomplish on defense. And these teams certainly to an extent I mean, Aaron Donald the highest paid defensive player in football residing with the Rams the New Orleans Saints so much of their turnaround in the last couple of years has been Marshon Lattimore he made to the biggest plays in the game yesterday against the against the eagles. Before the patriots and the chiefs these have been to lackluster defensive teams for the majority of the year and is impressive as the patriots defense was yesterday. The other side for the patriots scoring touchdowns on their first four possessions of the game. That tells you a little something the chiefs who this season have been got awful on defense for the vast majority of the time going out and throttling. The darling colts that have been out there. And we will by the way, pay respect to the fallen colts hearing from the one voice in the NFL that we prize above all others around here in our dear sweet, Andrew luck. But when you look at the games that happened on Saturday this weekend in that offensive trend. These are really the guys that we're talking about like when you talk about the Rams and the chiefs this has been the defining teams really the Rams for the last couple of years and what Sean McVay quite frankly has done to the NFL. You could argue in the last few years while the patriot. Have been the defining dynasty of the last decade. Plus in the NFL, Sean McVay in the last two years has changed the NFL on a major way. Sean, I don't think you could overstate what he has managed to do two and four this team. Now for this team. They're not any different. You're going to hear a lot of the same cliches coming out of them. But it's the way they've gone about it, and what this offense in particular what Sean McVay and him standing up there and doing card tricks at the press conference with other teams rosters and plays. The remember what it's done to everybody. It's I mean, you saw this off season across the board three to four coaching hires that you can all trace back to Sean mcdaid all the jokes about a thirty two year old head coach having a coaching tree already. No one has had the effect on the NFL in the last two years. John McVeigh has no one now. Whether that's good or bad remains to be seen. But this is where it goes. We just mentioned the top four offense of teams in the NFL making their way to the final four. Now if you listen to Rams running back Todd Gurley who was playing second fiddle to thick oh mode himself. C J Anderson going out there and dominating for the Rams Todd Gurley says this this itchy. If is good really good real real real good. Great. Excellent. But this one more key win first and last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. And so if Sean Payton or excuse me, Sean McVeigh is the sure thing. On one side for the Rams someone who was influenced the NFL more than anyone over the last two years. I don't think on the other side we can get away without saying that. Jason GARRETT'S been the most question coach in the NFL over the last year or two that especially this season. When we talk about what we're what were the major storylines. It was the patriots demise, which we all tried to predict fail at. It was the offensive explosion in the NFL that we talked about it has borne out success that has been led by Sean McVay who's been the most influential coach in the NFL for the last two seasons. You then look at the other conversation that we constantly had was we fired Jason Garrett in the middle of the year. Then the Cowboys got good now, we're not sure what to do. The Cowboys are in a position with Jason Garrett that the eagles were almost in with their quarterback. And Carson Wentz, Nick foles. Finally ran out of magic yesterday. But for the Cowboys now you wanna play off game with a coach that was much maligned during the course of the season in an offensive coordinator in Scotland a handle at a lot of questions before Amari Cooper came over. Now, what is there left to do? In the interest of keeping up with game of thrones. References here is ESPN's. Sportscenter anchor L Dunkin joining the best week ever yesterday on ESPN radio with this to say, I think the Jerry Jones has has to decide what is more important to him winning and actually contending for Super Bowl. Not just making it to playoffs or having an inside guy in there because let's be honest. That's why Jason gear still have his job. He is on the Jerry Jones camp. He's an inside guy. He's a little bird who sings his little birds just like game of thrones. And tells Jerry Jones everything he needs to know. So what's more important? What is more important? If you're the Cowboys also the continuity that comes with all that how far away do you feel in all this because the one other thing they made very clear what they're going to re-sign deck Prescott. Jerry Jones, essentially told us that as plainly as you can during the season. So how do you go about that? Because we see everywhere across the NFL again. The trend lately outside of hiring Shaw. Mcveigh's friends has been who's your quarterback comfortable with. How do you figure that out? How do we make sure the quarterback is the most comfortable environment proc- impossible? Now a lot of people have had questions about deck Prescott s- prowess as well during the season. But the other thing you've got to ask is how much of it. Do you think is him, and how much do you think is the people around him the coaches around him because we've also seen other places like the titans make moves in the best interest of getting the most out of that quarterback position in a way. They don't believe. But it seems like a lot of people might think we're seeing about the most we will out of debt Prescott. And it's good enough to win games in the NFL. Good enough to win you a playoff game in the NFL where does any of the ceiling? Go beyond them. Where does any of the ceiling? Go beyond just get in the playoff win game. Get sent home. Is there anything about the combination of Jason Garrett and Dak Prescott that says the Cowboys can win a Super Bowl it? Eight seven to nine three seven seven six because my honest answer right now is probably not. I don't look at that as a Super Bowl winning tandem of head coach and quarterback. And we've got a face that uncomfortable reality with a couple of people. We might have to face that uncomfortable reality with Philip rivers who I think is an infinitely better quarterback. Obviously veteran quarterback a hall of Famer, but guy was probably not going to win a Super Bowl in the course of his career in a year word felt like their best shot was on the way, we're getting closer and closer to where we may have those conversations about Andrew luck. Now, I think when we look at the other match from Saturday when we look at the colts and the chiefs, Andrew luck and Frank right? I'm willing to bet on them. I think that's a Super Bowl winning conduct combination. The way that we have seen Frank Reich Mary with this team. Obviously Chris Ballard in the front office deserve a lot of credit for the groceries. They brought into the kitchen on this and the draft picks that they made this year. I think that's eighteen that can absolutely win a Super Bowl, especially on the time line as at some point the patriots will slow down or fall to. Potentially. The old line about father time, we won't go back to that one for anyone that was listening to goal can win go last week. But the chiefs offensively what they have done. This season has been a major story, and when we can get more into coming up in just a little bit because we really are hanging. Our hopes and dreams on them. As far as something different. As a result in the NFL this season for everything that's happened. Again. The patriots the white walkers loom in the distance threatening to erase all of it. And yet Patrick Mahomes. Our young MVP who will hear from in just a few minutes. Is the last real threat of that? And the chiefs represent the most extreme version we talked about Sean McVeigh and this Rams team being the biggest differentiating factor. The most influential factor in last two seasons. Patrick Mahomes in this chiefs team and their success really threatened the old NFL guard about as much as anything that exists. They are the extreme version. They are the true air raid. This is Mike Leach's dream when he talked last year about the air raid principles on display in the Super Bowl in the playoffs. We have found the outer limits of that in Kansas City. But on the other side, we do have the fallen coal to represent the old guard, and we have to hear one final word from their leader are famous voice in the NFL that we've been do to for one more year. Here is Andrew luck. A lot of it came down to execution. They executed better than we did. We could not establish a rhythm in that hurt. It really hurt. It's tough sledding. Those three and outs that put our defense in a bad situation. We needed to answer some of those early drives. You know with with the least flip and field position putting points on the board. And that certainly not the start we wanted and not the middle. We wanted not the finish we want it. First and last the podcast first. And last podcast. We did a gang. By we did it. I mean, I went to Chicago. I tried real hard. And you know, what failing failing greatly in the attempt is still admirable or at least. That's what I'm going to tell myself when I have to go over and relive this moment on golick window, where they actually have the ability to show video on ESPN two. It's versa. Last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. You can get touch us on the shell Pennzoil performance line. That's eight eight eight seven two nine three seven seven six. Triple eight say ESPN get triple action protection for optimal engine performance with shell v. Power nitro plus premium gasoline. So this weekend. Our friends over at goose island honor of what you heard reference there. The Cody parkey missed field goal in the wildcard round of the playoffs that ultimately helped send the bears home early for the offseason earlier than they planned earlier than a lot of us expected. The eagles beat the bears Cody parking missed a forty three yard field goal. Hit it off to count them to portions of the uprights. And was booed mercilessly by Chicago, Bears fans and received all sorts of death threats and hate tweets and all these fun wonderful parts about living in two thousand and nine thousand nine on social media, and I many others came to his defense. I thought a lot of that was Bush league. But what it comes down to is. It was still part of the game in the part of the game that he lost. But it's also difficult to appreciate how hard some of these things are even as someone that played. I have definitely muttered under my breath, some obscenities when kickers and situations that would have benefited me have spit the bit because you do have one job. So goose island beer company. And Chicago went out of the way to show people. Just how hard that one job was. And so they set up a challenge outside of their brewery in Chicago, they said we're going to put a set of goalposts up there. You can come out and kick a forty three yard field goal. They laid down that gauntlet to anybody as they put the armchair ballers sitting on their mountain of potato chips, and vape pens masterful work by their Twitter account. So I went we actually we spoke this into existence. The you know, the secret or whatever the hell that book is we spoke it into existence last week. We made our way to Chicago, and I put on football pants for the first time in about four years, and it was uncomfortable. And I forgot how much you know, when when you get done playing sports. I think the one thing you miss the most the people don't talk enough about his police escorts because getting places quick as always great the one thing. You miss the least is putting on football pants 'cause they're uncomfortable. And they're rough, and they usually signify I'm about to go out here and hurt myself for a little bit. And I thought going into this. So I I am out there. I am in football pants. If you haven't seen it at Golic and wingo on our Instagram feed. Agla going on the one eight hundred flowers dot com Twitter feed, I go out here and absolutely lead. All the way into this. I am a football man wearing a goal can wind. Go jersey trotting up there to make this kick. And funny thing happened along the way. I actually started to convince myself my own peanut brain that with very little practice with almost no experience in this that I was somehow going to have a shot at it. And then it started snowing. And then it kept snowing, and I got up there and on my little patch turf. That I was gonna kick from we had to kick over a six and a half foot seven foot tall fence to mimic the pass rush. And then hit a forty three are field goal. I thought. All right. They're still chance. I pull this off. Then I saw the fence then I saw the snow and downgraded expectations through. All right. Let's get it over the fence. Let's get it up in the air. Let's not fall was not hurt ourselves. There was an injury ten. There was everything that was prepared there. And if you haven't seen some of the super cuts of things, I can assure you this one no one was actually hurt which is an act of God. And it self and two I was nowhere near the worst person to kick a field goal. Now. I was the very first person. I did hook it hard to the left and almost hit somebody that was waiting in line. But I accomplish my goals. I got up there. I address the ball with confidence. I got it up over that fence. I did not. Fall, and I did not injure myself. And through that process. I got to fully understand what Cody parkey dealt with. I heard the cheers. I heard the boos I heard the slings and arrows, and none of them could Pierce my because I knew in that moment, I had solidarity with my kicking brother, Cody parkey now, it was all in all seriousness. A great event a great job. I everyone involved. No one made it by the way. So when you talk about this, no one in that crowd. And there was a bright around one hundred people that they let in a great crowd out there hundred people got a chance to kick. Nobody actually made it and they were cleats. There were very serious pre-game rituals that were everything that you would expect from people with a lot online in this one. No one was able to do it. So maybe just maybe this breeds a newfound level of respect for what went on there. I understand that. None of us were compensated to be kickers in the NFL the way, Cody parkey is man sometimes you gotta just appreciate things for what they are. I last Michael junior here on ESPN radio and the ESPN app. So that was an experience. This weekend. I got to enjoy the rest of my Sunday. My football Sunday knowing that I had a clear conscience and a hamstring that was still attached to my body. Thank you for listening to the first and last podcast.

Dan Patrick Show - Hour 2 - (01-16-19)

"It's all about me. Dan, Patrick gas. There is more where that came from click back for new episodes all week, log broadcasting from the Mercedes men cake. This is Dan Patrick welcome to the program. Our two on this Wednesday, Dan in the danettes, Dan Patrick show spent some time talking about Cuyler Murray and his big decision coming up. I read to you some. Opinions that I got from an NFL scout yesterday on Cuyler Murray. I asked him if he would take Tyler Murray with the first round pick. And he said he would not he said that he's really small and eventually you're going to have to win from the pocket and the pocket is different in the NFL. Then in college. It's more spread out in college. The hash marks make it. It's a wider open offense there even though you've had drew Brees with success in Russell Wilson. This scout said that he would not take Cuyler Murray. We talked to Jeff passan for the mothership. Who is they're great baseball writer, and he said that Oakland's going to go all in they're gonna make a try to blow you away deal for Cuyler Murray. I would not I just want to know if you wanna play if you wanna play you tell me you wanna play all sweeten the deal. But if money is going to buy your passion here, then I have a real problem with that. And if he wants to play in the NFL, you're going to need to have the same kind of. But got a couple of weeks. He's supposed to report February fifteenth to the Oakland A's with training camp. So a little bit of time after the Super Bowl there, but some drama coming our way the eagles all in on Carson Wentz. And it looks like Nick foles will be sort of free to find another landing spot. What are you going to give up for Nick foles? Will he buy out his contract two million dollars to be a free agent, which is what I would do because then you got a chance to sign a four or five year deal. You're thirty years of age, and maybe you could relocate to Washington or Jacksonville. There's going to be there's gonna be some opportunities therefore, but these teams these same teams that are looking at Nick foles or Joe flacco or also looking at Cuyler Murray and Dwayne Haskins. So there's going to be, you know, little game that's played here of are we going with the established guy who's won Super Bowls in foles and flacco. Or you're gonna take a chance on Haskins out of Ohio State or Cuyler Murray? Yes, polling how much tougher. Would this announcement of Ben by the eagles Doug Peterson? If all Sean Jeffrey caught that ball. They scored a touchdown and beat the saints at the saints. How much well they wouldn't be making that announcement now. Right. But let's say even they got he got one more, and then bowed out in against the Rams. So you get just one step closer. Would it make that much difference? I'm nervous if I'm an eagles fan because I I just don't know what I have with Carson Wentz, you know, with the the health part of this. I know physically, I know he's talented, and yes, he's our future. But he's been injured back to back years here. I would try to keep Nick foles. I would try to convince him to stay. But if they're going to be fair to Nick foles, then you gotta let him go. He's giving you enough if he buys his contract out, and he can go elsewhere than that's better for him. Yes. He look, you know, the guy's not gonna stay healthy. You're gonna play it on the next year. It's just a matter of time. Hey, take your check get your money. We'll see in the playoffs gonna make twenty million. I mean, come on. He just chill. Do anything. Get to the playoffs. You know? Then that's when you take over. Okay. I'll sorta slog it out beginning of the season get through the next time around. We'll just have you eight through sixty eight seven seven three DP show, Email address DP, Dan, Patrick dot com. Twitter with DP show, say good morning to our radio and TV partners poll question for the first hour. Mclovin. Okay. Who would you want your choices being foles? Flacco Dwayne Haskins of Ohio State or Carla Murray. Forty six percent say they would want Nick foles if they were t- might Jacksonville, then Dwayne Haskins second then Joe flacco and last Kyla Murray, and I got another option. Okay. Of the four remaining coaches in the NFL playoffs. I'll give you your choice of coach for one game and take out ballot. Check she has Shawn Payne Andy Reid or Sean McVeigh who would you want to coach game this weekend? Sean payton. Take Sean pay saucy. Yeah. It takes you. One Super Bowl one more than Andy. Yeah. I if feels like he's a little bigger in the big time moments there, you know, Andy's track record complaints time. It's not great, Sean McVay is just getting his toes wet, so. Yeah, Sean Payton. But what about all this? Everybody wants next, Sean McVeigh. So isn't he the flavor is your well during the regular season you want Sean McVeigh, but you know, it's game to game now which winning a game. It's out coaching somebody, you know, that this is why Bella check has the legacy. He has he's he's won a lot of games. But we remember winning these kind of games where he'll out coach you. We'll talk to Ian O'Connor. He wrote the book on Bill Belichick and had some interesting things to say about Bella check, you know, that that he had to win back the locker room that that was really a big hurdle after what happened with Malcolm Butler in the Super Bowl last year, which we still haven't. Gotten answers on and bell checks. Not going to tell you anything about it. But, you know, Connor said, you know, at the end of his book on Bella check. He talked about how he lost the locker room with what happened in the Super Bowl when he benched, Malcolm Butler and also is this is best coaching job. I was watching pardon the interruption yesterday with Mike, and Tony and they had the question who had a better year Tom Brady or Patrick Mahomes and their take was Mahomes at his age Brady at his age. And I think they both sided with Brady at his age, which I would've as well. Because I also look at what Brady was working with and what Mahomes was working. You had injuries at all the wide receiving the positions for the patriot Sony. Michelle was injured, and you know, even though he was the first round draft pick. You know, Brady didn't have in dozen have good wide receiving corps. Not at all. You know? Ho- Hogan's not the same didn't have Ataman gronk is, you know, one step done, you know, that's game to game. Josh, Gordon, gone. You know, they didn't have Dion Lewis. I mean, they had James white and Sony, Michelle. So you could look at Brady had a better year. A meeting was twenty nine touchdowns eleven interceptions with that group. He had no pro bowlers. Mahomes has Kelsey, you know, I guess you could say the best titan and tyreek hill is unstoppable any ad Kareem hunt for a while. So you know, if you if you slant it that way Brady at a better season than Patrick Mahomes with what he had to work with any lost one of his best offensive lineman early in the season. Mclovin. Cub on. That is such a contrary. Take by you three. It's it. I'm learning. I'm learning from skip Bayless screaming as Smith Brady's knee was heard all year. And that's why he was thrown into the dirt. When a pass rusher. Got with an eight yards of him. He seemed awfully careful early in the season. Yes, boy, he Brady was a sixty six percent passer. Forty three hundred yards twenty nine touchdowns eleven picks. That's now a little down for him over the past three little, mclovin. I I am. It's slanting this. I said at forty one. Yeah. What Brady did with no weapons is more impressive. If you're looking at it in you know, in that prism, then Patrick Mahomes. The dude was throwing first hand I left handed. He was crazy. I I just I'm much more in the surface that Mahomes Caesar was so hopefully games blindfolded. Remember, they'll right. Yeah. Not looking at his receives throwing no look left hand passes thirty arts out of the field. I think he had one. Game where he didn't even play in pads. Like, he just went out and dockers, right? Yeah. He's more like a legendary like the legend of Patrick, by the way, is that going to work. I guess the patriots. Are they going to bait him into doing something? Like, I just wanna know how Bella check are you taking away Patrick Mahomes. Are you taking away tyreek hill? And I think that the indication of who's more dangerous bell checks trying to figure out tyreek hill what about Kelsey to. Well, you you're one guy who's going to benefit but Bella check. It's gotta take away tyreek hill if he doesn't then they don't win this game. If tyreek hill has a quiet game. I think the patriots went again. I don't think the patriots care what the weather's like if it's frigid. You're in New England Julian Edelman joined us and said, hey, we we practice outside like that's not going to be a big deal. But people are trying to make that big deal in won't be for the patriots. Yeah. Mclovin. Can we answer all these questions on Monday because if Brady beat? Behoves, and I'm right there with you. But the home still gonna win then BP though. Yeah. And he should. Yeah. Yeah. I'm fine with that. But you know, Brady's only one year removed from being the MVP, I know and having an incredible Super Bowl. So you know, everybody's waiting for Brady to fall off any other quarterback in the NFL. Any other quarterback doesn't have the same season. I think the Brady had with that group. I don't care. How old you are? You don't have that same season with that group because that that's not a great group gronk can't play anymore. I mean, they're best weapon or weapons or running backs. James white is their best receiver and Sony. Michelle is sort of hit or miss but elements, not the same Hogan's not the same amendola is gone. I mean gronk is nowhere near what he wants was. And Brady somehow they were one of the top four scoring teams in the. NFL? I gotta get a little bit of credit there. All right. Got to give them a little bit. I guess the chargers. He's looked like the best quarterback in the NFL. And that's a good at close second. Yeah. That's a good charger team. Good charger defense here. The Carolina Panthers owner suggest Andrew luck style year off could be the best for Cam Newton shoulder injury. This is the new owner David Tepper, he spoke with reporters. Why would you bring this up? If you're the owner how does this help your team because now every week every other week at the draft at many camp OT every question has to do with Cam Newton shoulder. Why would you do this? I would keep it under wraps his long as I can. Now, if I'm Carolina do I do I start to look at a quarterback here. Now, you gotta you gotta look at Cam Newton and say all right, his style. Is he going to be able to be healthy? For the rest of his career and coming back from the shoulder injury. As I told you with what Andrew luck was going through. And Cam Newton if you've gone through shoulder surgery, you know, that it's an inexact science. They even tell you that you're not quite sure. And they're getting the finest medical help you can possibly get. And they're still doubt about coming back. Andrew luck missed an entire year because of that and Cam Newton, you know, when you get surgery if you get surgery trying to play through it. And even if you do get surgery. At its it's not like Tommy, John surgery. They've got Tommy John surgery down. They don't have the shoulder down. And Cam Newton. I'm not surprised at all that this is a bigger issue. But I am surprised you gotta know imagine. If Christian McCaffrey said this. Yeah. Coach would be up in arms over this. Or the owner. Like, hey, what do you? Why would you say that don't say that, you know, we don't want anybody to know what's going on here? And then the owner says it I don't like that. Yes. He is it possible that this is sort of a really long term play to throw off whoever. The Panthers are playing week one. Who do you prepare for at that point right now at the game time to are? You are you preparing for is a Derek Anderson is he still the back of probably maybe they're just trying to mess with the draft over who's gonna fall to right around sixteen where the Panthers are. Maybe we'll take a quarterback. I dunno camps hurt. It's all gamesmanship mental warfare. Kyle Allen is the backup quarterback there. He had a great game. Remember seventeen Taylor Heinecke was playing his. But then he got hurt then Kyle. And who is the former number one high school recruit came in and beat up. I think the saints backups. But then do you start to look at Nick foles or Joe flacco if you're Carolina? Oh, yeah. I'm bringing it numbering. It today. Do you start to look at a quarterback there if you're Carolina in just throwing that out? That's a tall quarterback do. Okay and flacco. Wow.

I watched him interesting things as I always do which I'll tell you about here in a moment. But late last night, I hear this reaching sound. And I don't know what it is. And all of a sudden, I walk out. And there's my cat one of my cats. Actually, she's not my cat. But that's for another day at she's got a burden her mouth, and this bird is screaming for dear life, literally. And I'm I'm trying to get the bird out of the cat's mouth, and then get it outside. And it was not a good situation. Then there's another cat that wanted in on the meal is well, so he comes lumbering in. I'm like get the hell outta here. So I gotta get cats out. Get the cat to drop the bird open the windows, you know, and it's fifteen degrees. Open all the windows to get this bird to go outside. And then finally got the bird outside. And that cat was. So proud wanted to give me that bird like look at when I got you. I can't you bird. Why didn't you just let nature tickets go because I can't do that. I wanted was inside the house. No, I don't like those National Geographic shows the bird get in the house Orleans. I think that's an invader the cat doing its duty. That's a can of the year. We're not sure we there's no I witness reports on it. All I know is this cat had this bird and was not going to let go you're the only guy with a watch cat. I mean, a cat who actually does something because watchdog. Yeah. My dogs are worthless. They slept through the whole thing that cat, and why did catch always leave you something on the doorstep? They they they leave you surprises. Like this all the time. They'll bring a mouse the bring a rat. It's actually a test of your masculinity. They're like, yes, don't worry. I'll take care of all the predators. Somebody's doing something to keep the family say oh man woke me up from a deep sleep. But of course, I have the sleep number bed. So I was able to get back to slice. Yeah. A little product placement. There was one of those where you go. Okay. I hear a sound. That's not a normal sound here late at night. And then I gotta turn on all the lights. And then I got to open all the windows just to get this little bird out the door out the window. I have a dog question for you. I know very very little about dogs. My mother wants to buy a dog. But she wants something just that lays around does nothing that she could pet. She doesn't want to a barking dog or a running around like crazy dog, basically, like an Ottoman that breeze. An and not too big either. Oh, not too big. Well, you could get you can there's a lot of dogs that need to be adopted that our senior dogs, they're a little older. So they're they probably they're they're definitely out of that puppy stage. So they don't have as nearly as much energy, and they're probably not barking as much either that could be an option. And the they don't have as many accidents. Oh, yeah. They're usually good to go. The other hounds trains like adopting a sixteen year old kid. You know, it's kind of pass all the bad times older, no sixteen. That's when the bad. Rather two or month old? Yeah. Now, you probably want to have an older dog is is good to get. What about those pugs? They're kind of cute. She likes the a lot of energy is that right laud energy high energy. Yeah. That's another thing. You gotta be be this first three years with puppy. I mean, and you know, what they don't bark, but you're going to get over the cuteness of hearing. Real fast. They're certain dogs that bark in awful lot. Like a beagle. Just say what about Beagles kind of cute, they're cute, but they bar. Oh, they bark a lot. Yeah. But I would I would ask a rescue dog. Yeah. I would I would ask about a rescue dog. Okay. And, you know, find one that no. Has been house trained rescued who am I right? You ever see that bumper sticker who rescued who all rescue a dog? But it's like they really rescued mum. Okay. I like that. Yeah. You we'll get her that bumper sticker who rescued who. I saw this letter that was sent from. Grade school kid in Philadelphia and her name is Abigail. And she's she wanted to send this letter to all Sean Jeffrey, who of course, had the drop in the final two minutes the loss against the saints. And she sends a letter says I'm a huge eagles fan. When I watch the play last night. I was crying. It's okay to lose a game. You don't always have to win a game. I love you. My whole family was rooting for. You don't give up on playing football. Keep practicing don't quit. You're a good player. Love abigail. All right. I don't think this a real Philadelphia Eagles fan here. Because there's no way that she would have that kind of nice letter to all Sean Jeffrey post Super Bowl see up. Maybe that's what it is. If the eagles didn't win the Super Bowl last year. I think Abigail is tearing all Sean new one. I think she's all in on ripping him criticizing him because that's the way eagle fans respond. Not like this, mclovin. Well, maybe if there was a drawing of her giving the middle finger drew Brees at the bottom, then that would be you will see children doing obscene things have better Lincoln field. I'm not kidding. It's a it's a thing there. Yes. Fritzy? Isn't it refreshing that she's innocent enough where she could be a fan and not go to route that the rest of us like let's kill this guy and MC death threats and everything to the second grader, and you know, eventually, she'll get to the point where she's crazy like all the other eagle for the rest of us this. I've on my Twitter time was so soft. It was like alshon Jeffery was the hero of the game. Because he dropped the ball. Everybody is embracing. The team loses Cody parkey and also Jeffrey soft in okay now, you mentioned Cody parking, Cody parkey, the bears kicker doing doing he, you know, stands in their after missing the field goal took all the questions, and I commend him. Because you know, the field goal was was tipped which nobody wanted that was not going to be the story. It was hey, you went off the upright and the crossbar doing doing. It got tipped. And then they eventually changed it to officially a blocked field goal with Cody parkey, then he goes on the today show and sits down with the ladies, and they gave him like some award some made up award. Most inspirational player, whatever it was. If I was the head coach of the bears. I would have fired Cody parkey once he got off the set of the today show because you got Matt Nagy who's the new head coach. Who said, hey, we're only in this together. We all went together, we all lose together. I don't need Cody parkey doing, you know, the could you Pat me on the back tour here that that he never should have gone on the today show and didn't have a good season to begin with. If you're his teammate, you don't wanna see him on that show. You backed him. You were there for him you stood up for him. But he goes on the today show. I would have if I met Nagy just said he could you tell a savannah Guthrie when when he's done that he's fired. You know, we're releasing him. Yup. I theory about the positive sentiment towards Al Sean, Jeffrey, and Cody parkey two guys who who's teams lost because they didn't do their job. The internet social media so negative overly cr- almost universally negative. These days is that the new thing is to be ultra embracing of someone who screwed up on a big stage, overly embracing alshon, Jeffery. You know, wasn't your fault will was his fault. But in that moment, it was just a fact, but now everyone says don't worry about it. It's it's it's the of comforting is almost like being anti to what the negative on internet. You know for when you look at what happened with Bill Buckner? And you know, you you gotta move to Idaho and get away from it all and what they did to Bartman, or anyone that's made a mistake whether you're fan and that interfere with the ball, your boy you screwed up. It's just, you know, an death threats is just horrible. I can understand. And I appreciate why would go hopefully the other way in in these years where you're like trying to do the opposite. And try to split Donnie more ended up committing suicide after giving up a home run the Dave Henderson. So I I think it's kind of refreshing that you can put your. Random aside and be human for a minute and help. No, I don't want to get to death threats. But if I tell my kicker, we got your back where you know, let let's just move into next season. You know, let's not play this up anymore. You know, you you missed a kick. You didn't have a good year. Yes. It was tipped. But don't go on the today show. And unless the today show every week is going to have you know, an award for one of these players for coaching aggies. Exact quote was for me, you understand that we always talk about a we anatomy thing he said this at the season in the news conference. We always talk as a team wins the team we lose the team. You know, I just I didn't necessarily think that was too much of a week thing. I just didn't think it was a weird thing. No it wasn't. It was about Cody parkey. And and we always talk about kickers. They don't feel like they're part of the team. Here's a team that's making you part of the team and you made yourself. It was about you as an individual. And it was an oh woe is me tour, and you don't do that. You didn't need to do that. You should keep your head low. And then try to go in and win your job next year. And I just thought it was it was it was the wrong decision for him to make is all Sean Jeffrey going to be on the view today. And it like what are everybody gonna start doing this? I mean, I feel bad for guys who get put in these situations. And yes, we are overly critical and having spent time a lot of time with Bill Buckner after that ball went through his legs and what happened to his family. I certainly understand you know, how far fans can go to be fanatics. But I kept cautioning bears fans to say look the the ball was tipped you want to blame people blame your defense forgiven up the touchdown on fourth down blame your offense lineman for allowing somebody to block that kick. Parkey did make the kick prior to that when they were calling the time out, but the ball was tipped. So I was on parkey side. They're all Sean, Jeffrey, probably dropped the fewest balls of any wide receiver this year in the NFL. But he he dropped that one. Does that mean they win the game? No. But he did drop it. Okay. How far do you take your criticism? Now, how upset are you with all showing Jeffrey it certainly helps the eagles won the Super Bowl last year. I will tell you that. But also Jeffrey dropped it feel bad move on. But I don't wanna see all Sean Jeffrey going on the today show to go. Hey, could you give me an award here? Can I get the Cody parkey award, mclovin? Yeah. Speaking is an eagles fan. The fact that all Sean doesn't do a lot of media helps him here. Like, he's quite I think he kept it in the locker whatever he was feeling. Yes. And that's where it should be. All you have to do is say to your teammates. I feel bad. I mean, everybody knows you feel bad. Nick foles went up all Sean Jeffrey, and had you know, things to say nice things to say about him because he knows that he's been clicked for them. He was great helping them win a Super Bowl. Cody parkey has no resume. Can't be going on the today show. But I would just said insubordination, Cody once you stay with Hoda and savannah or you can join Kathy Lee, if you want to I'm surprised he didn't to stay for another hour, and then beyond with Al Roker and Kathy Lee drinking wine. Yes, pulling the tough part for the bears. There's all the sentiment to cut Cody parkey, there's a lot of money going on here. They gave him a four year deal last summer. So they owe him for guaranteed money completely guaranteed for the two thousand nineteen season. Bail him two point seven five million pluses prorated signing bonus the over three million dollars to the nineteen season. What they plays a minute or not. Jerry Jones is on one five point three the fan every week usually on Tuesday. And he has some things to say about Jason Garrett. Also blamed the field at the Coliseum and the loss against the Rams. Let me start with Jerry Jones talking about Jason Garrett. If Jason Garrett was on the open market. Which one the one where he talks about the five offers where? Sorry. I don't see that one yet. Nope. Field traction, though. Okay. All right. Jerry Jones, blaming the field conditions at the Calcio. Frankly, we never got traction. And I mean that literally that was a slippery field with very much. I had it to do over again. I we would be of really scrutinizing our footwear. Our cleats. We had trouble digging in so to speak. Now, you say let's try that's an excuse. No. It is not because not only physically, but we had trouble bigoted with just affective -ness of our defense. It sounds like an excuse. But but blame blame your manager. I mean, they that's their job to know the field conditions there. And did the Rams play on the same field as the Cowboys? The Cowboys were tipping their their defense was tipping their positions and the Rams pick this up. And that's why they had a great game or even greater game running the football. But Jerry's blaming his team for literally not having traction. I blame my guys because they didn't have you wearing the right shoes out there. Here's Jerry talking about Jason Garrett in how popular he would be on the open market Jason had been out on the market two weeks ago. He would have had five offers for head coaching. I know that. So you've got to look at what your alternates is. Well, let's see saying that there's there's no better alternative right now. And that's why Jason GARRETT'S employed. Do you believe that there are five teams who would have said if Jason Garrett was free that we're going to hire him would the jets to it? Probably would the Browns have done. It would Tampa Bay of Dunin Denver, Arizona. Miami. I I'm gonna guess that there would be two or three teams to bring him in for an interview. But I don't know if everybody would be rushing to bring in Jason Garrett and his Jerry Jones sang. We have Jason because we don't have a better alternative play. That again, Seton that what Jerry says about Jason GARRETT'S offers Jason had been out on the market two weeks ago. He would have had five offers for head coaching. I know that. So you've got to look at what your alternates is. Okay. What does that mean until another good candidate comes along? Jason's going to be our head coach. And we'll say this about the Cowboys. They're front office. Their scouting department's done an unbelievable job here recently. They really have. Now, they've taken some chances on some shady players, but you know, Vander h Ezekiel Elliott you trade from Ari Cooper the offensive line. They've made some really good decisions here. I just don't think it's been reflected in the bottom line. And Jason Garrett has won two playoff games in his career. I mean, he's not going to be fired. Now, I always thought. That there were two guys who were going to take over in Dallas one was Jon Gruden, but I don't think Gruden and Jerry Jones would do. Well, although Jerry Jones has talked. I've been told that he has spoken with Jon Gruden spoke to him in Tampa couple years ago. And the other one is Sean Payton. I thought Sean Payton would be the guy that Jerry would bring in former assistant seems like a more open minded offensive minded guy. And that would be the guy that Jerry would hire. But and I thought that there was sort of an impasse or friction with Sean Payton in the front office with the saints a couple years ago. And I thought that maybe you know, they they were thinking about bringing in Patrick Mahomes. So we didn't know what was going to happen which Brees was breeze going to play. Elsewhere were they gonna sign him for how long and Sean Payton's future with the same. I thought that you were going to see a situation where Sean Payton joined the Dallas Cowboys, and I don't rule that out down the road. Let's say the saints lose this weekend. Just throw it out there. I have no inside information on this. But let's say the saints would lose. It's that hot dad, just the TS. Would Jerry Jones look at Sean Payton, if they seems I keep would be remix a better, turn it. Live play that again about about Jerry talking about Jason GARRETT'S offers Jason had been out on the market two weeks ago. He would have had five offers for head coaching. I know that. So you've got to look at what your alternates is is is he kind of talking up Jason case something happens there, and you wanna put him out there on the open market. He would have five offers. Okay. Maybe maybe not. Sean pains equipment staff has all kinds of cleats one. Oh, five point three the fan, courtesy of conversation with Jerry Jones, by the way last night. I watched the it's a documentary on the Dallas cowboy cheerleaders. It's not what you think it was really well done documentary on the woman who is responsible for the Dallas cowboy cheerleaders. I think it's on stars that I saw, but it was really well done baron make sense that would be on star. Yeah. Not it's not what you think it is. Although they do get into Debbie does Dallas which was based on the Dallas Dallas cowboy cheerleader, and how there was lawsuits, you know, they were trying to prevent this with the the pornographic movie. What these women went through, you know, women's lib they were upset with these women like everybody was upset with the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. And but the wonderful things that they did that people don't have they have no idea. How generous they were with their time. They made fifteen dollars a game. But they would go on those USO tours. They'd go with Bob Hope. They would be overseas. They got shot at like it. If you get a chance to watch the dock. Commentary on the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders. Now, I don't know the official title of it. But it was really well done got chance to watch that. I mean, I was mesmerized with the story itself of the the Dallas cowboy cheerleaders the original ones talking about you know, what happened. You know, it's not a pretty it's not a pretty picture with what they portray. But it was really well done talk about when Jerry Jones came in. And you know, kicked Tex Schramm out the door and Tom Landry. And you couldn't have any communication whatsoever. With a Dallas cowboy cheerleader or they couldn't talk to players, you know, that was off limits, and then Jerry comes in. And then all of a sudden you're allowed to socialize with the football players, but it was really well done and the woman who created the Dallas Cowboys cheerleaders or she was the inspiration or she was the brains behind it just passed away recently. But it was it was I don't know when this was done, but it was really well done get chance to to watch that. All right. We'll take a break back with phone calls here. Coming up next hour. We'll talk to Ian O'Connor. He wrote the book on Bella check, and has some interesting things to say about him going into this AFC title game. That'll be coming up next hour back after this. Fellas.

That's Geico dot com. Stay tuned for sixty seconds of AP news headlines, right after this podcast. Robert in Wyoming joins us. Hi, robert. What do you have for me today? How you doing good? I just wanted to talk about a are real quick the talent talent evaluation. Okay. I just I'm with you like on the size. I remember you saying that you know, if you can win it that is just you're you're a winner. You know, it's just instilled in you, like, this is like I said, you know, ten years ago, there would be a problem. Yeah. And you don't put up the numbers that he puts up and not have somewhat of a game in the pocket. Right. I just and like he's so electric. He just is a talent at thrives on the big stage. Yeah, I I would have no problem. Investing first round pick if my offense and thanks for the phone call Robert if my offense was going to be geared towards him. The Browns struggled early this season. Baker Mayfield struggled early this season until Freddie kitchens came in and started calling the offense. And then all of a sudden Baker Mayfield started to play like he did. At oklahoma. And Hugh Jackson said after the fact, you know, what maybe I should have catered the offense a little bit more to Baker Mayfield in college. And I didn't you know, he didn't want to turn him loose and let him play. These guys are ready to play. Now. This isn't the typical. Hey, you're a rookie. It's going to take a little time. Now, there's certain situations and certain players that yes, it will take time. Lamar Jackson is still learning. How to play that position in the NFL? Josh Rosen is still learning how to play Josh Allen is still learning. How to play it? Sam darnold, a little more polished, but he's still learning and so is Baker Mayfield. But you're you're playing them right now and Sam darnold coming in. And what is he nineteen or twenty Baker Mayfield twenty twenty one like they're young kids playing that position? And if Tyler Murray can do it on a big stage at Oklahoma. I have no problem with that transition, but I have to be committed to his style in what he does. And I still applaud what Carolina did with Cam Newton is they made their offense more suitable to what Camden it Auburn. Instead of hey, this is we run a pro style offense. That's not the case anymore. The lines are so blurred between college in the NFL now because it's so wide open. Everybody's don't spread it's rare. When you see a quarterback get under center. And if I have I if I'm. Oakland. I have three first round picks. I'd certainly look at Kyle Moore. Absolutely. If I'm Jacksonville. You know? I'd look at him. If I'm the giants. I look at him. I'd have no problem with that. Like I'm fascinated with Cuyler Murray if he played for the judge because now I got Cuyler Murray, and I got saquon Barkley. Run pass option. I got Dell Beckham in there. I now, I'm I'm creating something here. I want you to have to adjust to me. And I think that's that would be an awesome approach if on the giant it doesn't feel like that's what the giants would do them. Now, they're four more conservative. So I don't know if they would they would have an offense that looked like that I saw where a seventh grader quarterback in Michigan was given a scholarship offer from Jim horrible. So the kid is thirteen years of age his name is Isaiah Marshall and Jim Harbaugh after watching tape of the thirteen year old quarterback. He was visiting the school searching for high school prospect Southfield high and he decided to offer him a scholarship. Now, it's non binding. I hate when colleges do this. I think it's creepy. When you have a talent evaluator, you know, go into a playground to watch, you know, seventh and eighth graders play basketball. I just don't like it. It's wait. And unless you're gonna make that binding where if he wants that scholarship he gets that scholarship. It's a publicity stunt, but this kid there's already enough peer pressure when you're that age thirteen you're going through an awful lot.

SVP's 1 Big Thing - June 12

"Yeah. Being. Last year in the National Football League. Kickers went twenty four twenty from forty three yards in the regular season. That is eighty five point seven percent, which is the exact same free-throw percentage James harden, has for his career part of what makes him such a lethal score gets fouled a lot, any very rarely misses like most kicks from the NFL from forty three yards last season. Cody parkey to tune his career from that exact distance going into last season playoff game against Philadelphia. Then he made one late to give them the lead only Doug Peterson and called a time out which meant he had to kick it again. And, you know the. You know the. Right here. That placed kick and it is. Because the stick of that miss wasn't going to go away the bears moved on despite the fact that they just parking to a four year deal and had to absorb more than a five million dollar captured to cut their kicker bears. Did they decided they were gonna find somebody who can hit a forty three? Well funny thing that in may in rookie camp head coach. Matt Nagy had eight rookie kicker. Try from forty three yards with. No, rush only two made it this was after he said at the draft that he was over the missed kick will in many camp on Tuesday. Nagy had three kickers and camp. Chris Blewitt who they released on Wednesday Elliott and Eddie venero all attempts from forty two yards. Why yard closer? I don't know that, that was a number Neg invokes. What he calls a Gusta silence. The whole team all the reporters more than twenty bears alumni, all watching the kickers went over three. Nobody hit the kick. Well, what did you think of that? Whatever went through your mind through my mind. That's about as real as they were over three out there. And for today that's not good. I mean we can't have that. This is a really bright guy. He is as clever a young mind as there is in the game. And I get what this is. But I think it's a mistake obsessing over the distance of missed kick from last year's playoffs. That can't be made. Right. If you make it in mini camp in may or June, only magnifies what happened against philli doesn't allow anybody to move on from it. Undoubtedly creates a sense pressure on the fella who are going to need to make the case for real, particularly those. They haven't camp, kicked zero NFL games with the numbers. Tell you is that there are a lot of figures out there. We're gonna make the forty three yard parking had never missed one. And then it happened and excruciating the worst possible time. But here's which wild since the merger in nineteen seventy the bears are only twenty one of forty from exactly forty three yards, which is fifty two point five percent. It's the worst of any team in the league. It's also way worse than Andre Drummond at the free throw line lash year just for context. So history tells you bears this. Is it your distance as a franchise understanding that maybe you can stop looking back start looking?

Do you use one line through the S or do you use to this is what consumed a mean, a writer has said that Colin Kaepernick is worse than Satan? We'll get to that. In a second Gillette has an amazing ad. We'll get to that in a second. I want to talk about stugatz. And his Cody parkey take from the pre-game where he says Cody park, it should be allowed to just wander around. And no one should get mad at anybody because he is showing how to overcome adversity. But the first thing I want to get to and Mike I need executive Clarence on this. I need to find out. I need to run up the ladder at ESPN. Allison Turner, has what I believe to be one of the funniest voicemails I've ever heard, and it's Bob Einstein. And it's Bob Einstein before passing away agreeing to come on the show again under a certain condition, Billy. I know it's dangerous voicemail. But I know he wanted played. I know I know that he would want it played Alison set this to me and Billy a couple of days ago. I mean, it is it's funny. But it is dangerous. It is but. On the air mo-. I need I need a ruling on this game. Oh, you've heard it and bed yet. But he worked blue, and he's always worked blue, and his, you know, the joke on curb your enthusiasm when he told here your bleep is in the sink is a dirty joke, and it's earlier than this. It's thirty than what he did here and Mike would you agree? Or would you not agree based on our relationship with the late? Bob, Einstein that he would want that Email played because it's a brewery ously funny, and he's clearly joking. I I need to hear the voice before you haven't heard it. I can't make room for the love of God, Billy. What do you think? The Mike Ryan ruling is going to be never gonna he makes a Louis C K joke, and it's funny. We really should have done a remote from his funeral. He would have liked that. I think that right. No one else would have in Stu gods would have been bothering. Larry David the whole time bothering come on the show. Yeah. But imagine if we were at the funeral just across the street to be respectful enough guys just running back and forth. Hey, we're doing radio show. You wanna come on, Alison? What are your thoughts on this? Because I need your help. First of all because you're the one who had the deepest relationship with him just answer this question. I. What do you think? Would he want it to be played? Yes, or no. Yes. Man that should not be our governor. Shouldn't that be our governor now? Mike, should I don't agree. I can I listen to it. I by not listen to it. I prefer the audience city the look on your face when you hear the joke. Now, we gotta clean it up. I think a little bit really little vein. I think that all we need to do is change one word or beep out one word one word. I don't have the best judgment. I say we play it. And I think like ten words qualify. Alison, hold on a second. How many words need to be bleeped out of that for us to be able to play it? There's one I'm thinking of there's definitely one man. There's one let me give the backstory to the people because I think we're going to end up playing this consequences be Dan Mike's back now from New York, let's get him in trouble. I segment national show is Mike and listen now. Oh, I think that exonerates him if we just play it over his objections. He hasn't heard it, and I'm betraying him now publicly just to put maximum fear in his heart. But this is the backstory, welcome back. Bob, Einstein was a friend of the show, and he is Albert Brooks brothers super, Dave Osborne. He's been in comedy for a long time. The comedy aged. Well, and he thought our show was cursed and killing people after Alan Thicke and Bill Paxton passed away after appearing with us, and he refused to come on the show anymore, and it was a funny bit. It was Chris Elliott in the seats of the Letterman show, he was enjoying how much he got on air while refusing to come on air that phrasing is something I could change right now because it ties to. This particular joke not help my psyche louisi- joke. It's wait a second. Is it a joke that Louis CK bathe? Or is it a joke about Louis? Oh, it's a joke about Louis C K. Okay. Well, I don't think you should say. Okay. Just yet. I need to talk this out with Allison. I said okay to process, I didn't say, okay, we should do this. Because that's by think we need to leave you out of this. I really do. I know that it's actually about Louis C K. It's more about a circumstance involving his life. Are do me a favor play it for me in the back room privately? And I just wanna look at his face while we're doing the show, and I wanna thumbs up from me not that he's the judge and jury on this either. But I want to spread it around the room because I believe that this is the joke. Look man, one of the first times Bob Einstein came on with us back when we were local and only local he told that joke he told on curb your enthusiasm. He told him better here than he told it for Jerry Seinfeld who couldn't stay in character while he was telling it, and it was a dirty joke. We had to dump it. And we're like what are you doing? You. Can't do it that way I'm telling you that we can't have a better Amish to this man that we all loved than letting him work a little blue on Disney radio from the beyond from the beyond. But he didn't want to be on this show now. But now it's over that contract has expired can stop calling at Disney radio. We can't kill him again. Very true. I could step out just play for me privately. I just wanna see the look on a means vase bring it to him. And I wanted to see the look on his face and see how much lapse you can watch them mean on ESPN news in the back of the shipping container. All right, boys. You're going to have to shoulder the burden of content. We can't risk microphone coming on here. So it's just YouTube. Okay. That's fine. But I mean, just get in front of me. So that the audience in front of the camera behind Mike there? So the audience can see whatever it is your reaction is tell the audience, what's your reaction is that I will berate to God's about. His Cody parkey Tate play by play. A mean listening to a voice because I got to build up to it. Because Mike is getting it look man, we're a little scrambled around here. We got a lot of things going on. None of which we're doing. Well, we're stumbling around we got another announcement to make on 'cause we lead sports in announcements and then not doing anything. So there's another announcement today. There's gonna mean like holding his hand in shame and humor. It's an amazing joke. I bought it's dangerous in this climate, Alison loves it. I feel like Allison should be our governor on this. Because she helps us stay inside the line. We all love it. We also all love our jobs. All right. So all right. I mean, a mean is that the microphone now? Absolutely no way you can play this. Imagine what Mike years tan we played. Why explain to me why we can't play it? Can I listen to it? Or do we want to have the let's do it again? Let's look at Mike's face now might get solicits open. Now, we're going to betray the audience. Can we put it up on Twitter, something we put her on our Instagram story? Can we can we send people to because I don't want to betray the audience on this can't build this up like if it's a bit. And then not play it for people. I mean, I don't wanna make any judgments on what we should do with it outside of unless you want to come out of the decision. Come. How about we build the next moss of and around it you have to buy a t-shirt and listen to the tape Chris down. T shirts. And we'll play the license agreement. I have to share that with the estate. I this is the thing though, Mike I want what about this, Dan lebatardshow friends thing, but we're allowed to work a little blue or what fit when they're. Yes. It would fit there. We are allowed to we can say pretty much anything outside of the F word. You might wanna listen too much. Pretty much. Maybe we can do that. Maybe that's the way that our. We'll figure this out in the second. Why is it working blue y where does that expression come from? I keep saying I don't I know what it means. But I don't know why it's working blue put it on the poll Guillermo at lebatardshow, do you know, why it's called in comedy, working bloop? Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in its hockey skates. Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven p three lines. He just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how Geico proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out donlevatar. And finally the Carolina Panthers have a Somalia on staff. Wine expert, small EA you to try one more time. No still guts tried again. A little can I hear it. Again, the ARA silent. It's French it's French. And finally the Carolina Panthers. Have as Amalia on staff is not a small arms island is not a Somali is not as Molly, Mike. Let me here. Too small Smalley at finally the Carolina Panthers have a small lay on staff. Perfect live at our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. Mike, you want to share with the audience what you just shared with me? Or should. We just put it on the poll at lebatardshow, Instagram and Twitter. Are you stunned that Jim Nance works out to big boy? Yes. Or no, Marcus spears is saying the Jerry Jones does not want a coaching name bigger than his. That's funny. That is funny. It makes sense to like he he's been there. Did that hasn't won since? The us is Jason Garrett. If you put them out there on the free market that five teams would hire him as they go. What what gamma put it on the poll as well. What does Jerry Jones want more winning or doing the press conference because I feel winning or just talking to cameras Jerry's done thing where you had the big name. I mean, he always had the big name got rid of Landry. Then he brought in Jimmy Johnson that name was bigger than his. And then he realized even though he wants to bowl with Switzer is like I got to be the biggest thing here. I'm the guy responsible. Then realize it's not working out. I gotta bring parcels here. And then that wasn't working out. So he's like bleep it. It's Jerry world. It is. That's right. I want to understand something here as we we will play Mike Ryan will listen we will turn off the microphones Mike Ryan, go ahead and get while. I'm talking here. Go ahead and get the Bob Einstein voicemail and tell me if there's any way that it can be bleeped out in a way that salvages us with the back story of this is a joke. This is not serious. This is Bob Einstein working a corner that no one's working right now in terms of Louis C K type comedy. So we'll see if we can play it in a second. But before we do that because it's funny. The Cody parkey thing Stu got yet. The part that's baffling to me about it. The part that. Another covered. Thanks. Being. No, but laughing what happened. Did you just stop it in the middle? Or did you get to the end of it? What happened Mike I stopped it in the mental. All right. Keep your microphone off. I don't want any of this going out on air. But I'm asking you as a master editor is the guy who has clipping these south beach sessions. So they sound just so I'm asking you if there's a way to take out some of the tough material there and make that joke that is somehow usable on air because it's funny, and I wanna stop telling you that it's funny, and I just want to show you that it's funny. But I'm wondering if it's funny without the stuff that Mike is laughing uproariously. And I feel like laughter is our governor on this. Like, we are. We are a group that can actually put down bed judgment and put laughter above it as the priority. So this may be bad judgment. But I know the audience is going to laugh at this. So we will see if we can get that on air. But the Cody party thing that's confusing to me as he makes the rounds is I don't understand why we're ignoring that. The the kick was blocked we never blame the kicker when the kick is blocked, and it's not because it's actually too. Low. Right. I mean, that's a good point that kick was blocked. So technically, it's not Cody Parke's faults. That's a very good point. We realized that until you know, maybe a day, but it's obvious from the video evidence that that kick was altered by a hand of a jumping human being right who altered the course whose name. I don't know because we're too busy blaming Cody parkey, right but park still had to live with that for for a good amount of time right after the game for day or so before everyone am I right that a missile kick is worse than a blocked kick in the event, not if you kick it straight into your lineman. But if the kick is otherwise a reasonable high kick and some dude just jumped up and got a hand on it because he beat his man. And we don't know the name of the guy who was responsible for blocking him, and many of us don't know the name of the guy who actually blocked the kick. It's weird that all we do that we ignore that bit of nuance. He got a fingertip on it. And it is weird that we're knowing it. But Cody parkey, I listen all these doing first off he is soaking up. The fact that. He didn't do a good job at doing his job. Okay. Sugata strong in it. I am proud of Cody parkey. But then really what he's doing. He's making the rounds. He's a man of faith, right? And he's just telling people this is how you overcome adversity. Here's the thing. That's a decent. Message to send area to be Dole's. And then kids that I had not seen before that dude pointed to the heavens after didn't go in right? Like that dude wants to be the guy he wants to be the guy who is telling you about his God in a time of adversity. This is moment, and the understanding is that when you're hurting you do not lose faith. That's what he's trying to convey. It's bigger than football. I'm just confused by why it is that, you know, Chicago fans, I've seen some videos they've been horrible to him like just unreasonable sports identity horrible. I mean, it's what t-boz been saying and continues to say almost every day, right? Adversity faith. Good time. Times bad times. I think the problem here's the coach calling them out the call amount overweight over yourself. Wait a minute. Okay. Thank you for the most obvious take in the world. He's scored nine of the fifteen points. You signed him in the off season. He missed five catch. You didn't autumn. I mean, get over yourself. Right. But I'm more interested in the fact that at a time of great heartbreak as he lets down all his teammates that dude is still pointing to heaven saying, thank you. I don't see that a whole lot like people get pretty caught up in their misery. And I don't really think that that was just a reflects thing that he does I think that people of that kind of faith believe that way that they are meant to go through the turmoil. So they could teach others lessons about faith. And so I'm not even sure Cody parking and that respects minds missing the kick because when your faith is that strong when you're that spiritual that in that moment is Chicago's Yellen that you as your teammates hates you because they break their bodies. And you don't use still after getting the worst of bounce? Is the twice right? You're still thanking God for the opportunity to be on the stage. I do think there is no -bility in that. He did say I play football for a living football does not define me. Like, that's that's and that's the message. He's trying to put out there. I think I mean, it's a decent. It's a great message. And he's talking about overcoming adversity a hoard. It was for him and his wife in that moment in a couple of days after that. There's other wrong with what he said. I mean, he's taking blame forty feels horrible football does define several of the fans that are upset at him. And you know, what and players and on his own team that are upset at him. And I'm actually cool with what fans are doing it sports. And I know that it's not human. But that's you wanna get on reasonably angry and you'll get on reasonably happy. If he actually makes a kick and you'll make them into a God amongst men. That's he actually berries it. This is what sport is. I don't mind what the fans did. I don't mind. What parkey did I only my what has coached it calling them out? I mind get over yourself. What we've done. Done which is still not play that audio for the public of Bob Einstein so mic, please make a ruling on this. I don't think it's fair for me to tease it for two segments. And then not give it to the people. Will you tell me where it is that we can put it can we put it somewhere around are big announcement later in the show too. They're not around this big announcement. When is the big announcement of big announcement will be within an hour within an hour. What is the big announcement? That's not the way that work. Oh, it's not the way announcement worked announcements work. What do you what do you have for me as a the Bob mindset? There's no disputing right? It's a brewery people would dispute whether or not it's funny in today's Clinton some people. Yeah. In today's climate is one or two things I'd like to tweak what you think we can get it. If you're cool with compromising the integrity of the audio clip, and there's some sort of middle ground will be funny with your tweets or. Yeah. Well, which would be better though to put it somewhere where people can listen. To it on their own on demand. That's the future or playing it unfiltered leaves us susceptible to some very valid criticism in today's day and age, really. Yeah. What that's my. That's my ruling. But he was you couldn't do whatever you want any. No, I don't let them listen, man. Donlevatar mission impossible's on your television. You're going to watch it for a few minutes. Like, they're all entertaining. Although I would say the one that was bad was the one where there were faces being peeled off. I thought that everyone everyone you apply that rule, then it's all the one where it would. No, no. But the one Philip Seymour Hoffman one where everybody was pulling off of are you out of your mind, not a single bad moment in any of those movies that wants to God's you do not have a good movie if you have a movie in which your face is being peeled off. As a plot. Twist did not like the mask. That was when swing was coming back the mask, you not like tech savory. Do you? Not like Cameron Diaz. These live with our show with Stu gods on ESPN radio. Gamma put it on the poll, please at lebatardshow Instagram and Twitter, the California taxman are you mad at him for calling the hotdog a sandwich him or her the California tax person. Yes, I'm very angry at this person. Okay. Not a sandwich, man. Right. But calling a hotdog a sandwich. It's something that a lot of people end up arguing about I do not want to be one of those people some putting it on the poll. So I don't have to think about it anymore. Right. You guys decide. The warriors did do that thing last night. And what I wanted to ask you is. They've changed a lot to God's because if you remember the best incarnation of the warriors that I saw was the warriors team that I always thought down ten with five minutes left. This was a couple of years ago. It wasn't recently. It was before. Kevin Durant down ten they were coming for you and look out. It's the scariest thing in sports five minutes left there in a panic. They've actually picked up that game to the crazy place where the versatile that team doesn't exist with Kevin Durant. Kevin Durant hasn't won as many games there. You remember that season? They were all equally hungry. They were all invested. Pat, Riley's told you in the winter within that the problems come after winning not before that when everyone's United and go into the Hamptons, it's easy, then everyone's bored and tired and wants credit, and what happens is that team is no longer the team that ten minutes left. You know, they're better than. Everyone else. Right, but five minutes left, and they're down ten how were they going to make the sup because you know, they're going to make it up and oh my God. Boston just beat them in Golden State. I can't believe it. Golden State was down fourteen and they almost came back, but they didn't have enough at the end that team is the best team. I've ever seen in basketball. And you don't think this team is that team? I mean, I just don't fear that with if they're down ten right with five minutes left. I fear them more than anyone else in league. But I don't fear them the way that I did. Right. When they were winning seventy two game. But you fear him because they can hit the threes get hot and get back into the game quickly. I mean last night certainly looked like the Golden State Warriors. We've become accustomed to the nuggets but up thirty eight points in that first quarter. They were down thirteen could it be that they know that they can be that team. But to summon that sort of energy is draining especially in relatively meaningless. Well, that's a mean says keeps having into James harden that he's got work so hard to win the MVP by the time. It gets to the warriors. Like, oh, you guys come on three or four me. Did all this. And now we're going to face you. Well, I who is the greatest winner in sports. I know Bill Russell has all those rings. But I'm wondering what Tom Brady needs to do. It's going to be eight degrees. High in Kansas City. He doesn't care this weekend. I want to do it then old on. I know that's your move. Just hold on. Let me get about. You. Let me get the thought out before you warned me not to doubt the patriots. All right Arctic blast. I'm asking you. What Tom Brady has to do to supplant, Michael Jordan as this generation's greatest winner. Is it possible? Is it allowed is it because it's not just that. He's won all those championships. It's that what you say thirteen out of the seventeen years of he's completed a season. He ends up in the in the championship game seventeen completed seasons. This thirteenth championship game. Seventy five point something percent. That's higher than the religion throughout percents. Aaron Rodgers miss the playoffs. This you're given the drew Brees miss the playoffs. Isn't it fairly amazing? Chris gave you that great stat earlier that the patriots were plus one eleven for the season. But we're plus one ten in the division everyone else they played against they were plus one, but the laughing stock jets and dolphins and bills their plus one ten what else he can do. He can have as many road plan victories in his career. Mark Sanchez, which he doesn't. Three and four in his career on the road in the playoffs. Mark Sanchez has four Jordan lived to be on the road. That's that's not true. No. He did. No, no, Michael Jordan to be home. He lived to be on. He lived a shut up the opposing team. Do that. He lived the play game seven at home. He didn't say rather do that. That was Reggie Miller. Michael said it I gots. No. I haven't ally. Here this whole did you see Tom Brady's post-victory workout video where he was playing many men, and he's like, let's go and he's commenting on Dana, White's Instagram, Aleph G and look patriots. Great performance against the chargers. Not really sure why. The chargers went in with the same game planning against they thought Tom Brady was Lamar Jackson seventy vs. But you've got home field in the by against a team that deserved it more. Based on a technicality knowing what you've done on the road this year. You're probably not making it through the very same path that the chargers have two at Baltimore and say, even at Los Angeles, you've never really been that team and even in the postseason. So why are you so cocky, this is the bleeping technicality, really? But they played so well that no one's going to say that. But it means a lot that the charges a west coast team. In two straight games when there are better than New England. Here's the thing. We've talked before about this. The patriots greatest advantage than whatever it is what the twelve thirteen straight years they play with a buy in the playoffs. And most of those years, you're playing two home games because they've got the best record the thing. It seems to me that the patriots never run into is what San Diego ran into which is you don't have the rest advantage. But you're playing the better team that does like they don't walk into that situation. Very often. They walk into the situation bell check two weeks to prepare and the team is healthier because it didn't play the ravens earlier. And we know the ravens are savages, and they're gonna physically break. Everybody on your team order to Vance pass them. You're not gonna win this argument with sports fans because they're gonna point to the scoreboard say look how much better New England is than Los Angeles. But I'm telling you if New England had the very same path I'd favor. The chargers if they played that game right now if New England I'm not even sure New England makes. Out of Baltimore considering how bad they've been on the road. But here they are. And here Tom Brady is all cocky, not pointing out that this technicality. The chargers were better than you this season. They played in division with the chiefs. They deserve homefield deserve a playoff spot. If you win your division. Absolutely. But it's totally unfair would happen to the chargers. Super both of you, not super careful I care about both of you. Are we going to be able to tell that Bob Einstein joke? When are we doing that? Let's tease it. Next segment. We do it. Next segment you're gonna clean it up. Or are you running it up the chain? That's an interesting conversation to have with the executives at this. Find out if we've compromised our morals next donlevatar mummy. Do you? You'll say let me stugotz, they don't do y'all wanna poetry brevity base as lebatardshow with stow God's on ESPN radio. How do you feel about eight degrees? Eight degrees in Kansas City. What needs to happen for a bad road team? Go to Kansas City and win. The only thing that I thought could stop Mahomes and the chiefs is horrible wind and cold where all of a sudden you've gotta run the ball. And you can't throw it the same way and the patriots have been running game. Yes. Oh, yeah. The patriots are are built the colts. Are the funny thing is the colts. I think are the type of team that's built to take out Kansas City, but they're very susceptible to the run Kansas City's defenses if they get on you early that pass rushes incredible. And they're going could actually look like a pretty good defense. So I guess if Kansas City jumps on New England early then forced New England throat, even though they're going up against one of the best bad. Weather quarterbacks in the history of the game. They should be able to handle it. But if it's a game doing Linda Salish is a run that's kind of scary. But the patriots do that thing where Sony Michelle runs the ball yet you a hundred yards and then fifteen catches for James white ninety nine yards. It's really like a running game and the ball of the travel very far in the air. So advantage patriots careful. You're you're you take all the sides though. Because you walked out of the studio, you're careful everybody downing Tom Brady, and then the next thought no allegiance to consistency whatsoever. He'll never pass Jordan, Dan. He'll never pass Jordan. There's nothing he can do. Did you see that gaming Utah then? And so I'm walking away. This is how it works on the road, by the way. Yes, this is. He's like did you see that shot that ended Utah twenty years ago, Dan, he's just following me and chirping lives for the road? Yeah. You mentioned that uselessly point Craig Hilo. He was wearing the home. Whites can go. I wanna get to this Gillette ad in a second. But how about our Mondo Salgueiro of the Miami Herald saying he would rather have Satan as the dolphins quarterback than Colin? Kaepernick mean to Jake Colorado retirement a second time. The Satan get to use all his evil powers, or I mean, we'd all want him in those circumstances, right? What would that look like you imagined that he's much of a scrambler? Do you like what what kind of quarterback is? He lets all deception and misdirection. So a lot of play action. I assume probably flies just chip Kelly. Offense people are in motion lies. I it and flaws. Yeah. That's one of his evil. Power has a power flight because he's a fallen angel. His cadence must be amazing. You can throw his voice. Can you guys? Do you guys recreated back there? I'd love to have like a bit that that sounds like Satan's cadence at the line of scrimmage as he's changing play to clearly misdirection, you know, play action just ally. Whatever would be ally, not quite evil. Look, mike. They've turned on the red light for us torture. Torture. View free to work that bit out because I am here for Satan as the quarterback instead of you know, guy kneeling protests social injustice, I'm with you are Mondo we could literally sell our soul to the devil the way the patriots clearly have. And we could all be Tom Brady down here in Miami feasting on the incompetence of the AFC east. Can I ask you about this Gillette at I don't think that's God's wants to have this conversation. But Gillette did something that was a bit startling. They've got an ad campaign now and Allison is trying to get someone at Gillette to talk about this. What you want with your ad campaigns is not just you know, it's artful. It's an artful ad campaign. But the thing that's rare about it is they're asking their male customers. That's the demo. They're asking their male customers to be better. And the backlash is no we don't want to be like don't tell us Gillette. How to be better? But. But you rarely have a company edict. We're going to tell our customers. They mean to be better. Do you have that ad might you have the audio? It's very artfully done yet. The video helps it, but the audio might show you what Gillette is trying to do a lot of people were talking about this yesterday. Bullying the metoo movement against masculinity. Is this the best man can get. Is it? Problem. We can't hide harassment is taking over history going on far too long. What I actually think she's trying to say making the same old excuses. We'll be. Will be boys whose you boys, boys? But something finally change. Regarding sexual assault and sexual harassment wants. But she says. Then there will be no going back. Because we we believe in the best in men Ben need to hold other men. Accountable. Rouse, weaning come on to say the right thing. To act the right way. Some already are. And ways big y'all. And small. But some is not enough. Treat each other. There's the boys watching today. We'll be the men of tomorrow. It's moving it's well done and have shocked the Gillette did it. Because usually the point of your commercial campaigns is just don't get your customers mad at you. And certainly don't enter into what everything has become these days in two thousand nineteen which is it feels like a political conversation. Even though it feels to certain segments of the population like a political conversation, even though in terms of political platforms. We can be better is not that hard the president of the United States one on that platform wearing it on a hat like we can be better is not exactly controversial. But people have turned it into something. That is controversial just asking men to stop man's planning. Asking men to be better. Just tell me razors. That would matter saying, right. Yeah. I mean, the point of a commercials to be talked about and we're talking about him. I know, but yes. But usually most marketing teams. Would tell you this seems as benign as you can be controversial. But I'm guessing addict -secutive were like, whoa, you're telling your customers to be better and then asking for their money. You're lecturing your customers say sixty six. Hell hell sixty six how Geico presents eyewitness interviews with inanimate objects.

Mason and Ireland [hr 2]

"I e SPN LA in Ireland sal- new year, happy hour happy. Where did you think of the new slogan atop our every hour? Happy hour every hour is going to be happy hour from about three to four in here me three to four is going to be happy. Drew the extra or today? Real happy the old noon to three Mason Ireland show is going noon to four today. They Salat Greg. This is exactly what you wanted. When you came back wanted an extra hour because you haven't been able to talk little or no notice I'll go with the full. All right. So I guess I I asked that question. What? If the Lakers had no liberal in a world without LeBron in a world where you've got that same young core. Brandon Ingram cow coups, mud, Josh heart. You've got those same guys Lonzo. How good with this Lakers team be right around eight between as you say they would be the between eight and ten right around there. Look how jumped up our bunched up at his back there. So right around there. I mean, look we had a good stretch against some bad teams. We've had a rough stretch the teams right where John island actually said they would be. I don't think it's that crazy to expect them to lose with those three guys out. And I don't think it's nuts to think Lonzo is not going to be the most aggressive score in the league. Like that just sort of goes without saying so in those I'm all for holding players accountable, and I'm all for criticism, but the criticism has to fit the the piece of art you're talking about like, if I show you a painting, and you say, well, I don't think it sculpted that. Well, I'm gonna go wait. What what are you looking at man statue or painting? So Lonzo is who he is. He was that in college. He was that in chino. He is that now and suddenly say, hey, man, we need. You to drop twenty. That's just not that's not going to happen on a consistent basis. That's definitely not his game. Here's what Luke said after last after yesterday's loss to the timber wolves try, but they're young let me say he's talking about specifically Brandon Ingram and Lonzo ball try. But they're young. You know, at some point we just, you know, we need more passion, we need more fight. And that's not. That's not scoring more. That's, you know, more diving for loose balls. Yet, you know, communicating loudly grabbing grant, and has some really nice crack back rebounds tonight that we can get out run need that all the time from so just. You know, not just, but it's until we get healthy. Again. You know, you gotta you gotta play in his league some passive fire to win. It's hard to win in this when you are healthy. So you gotta give double that effort when when is down, and it definitely wasn't there yesterday. There was not a lot of fight. There wasn't a lot of passion. He didn't see guys getting on the floor after a after a loose ball. You didn't see you didn't see any of those hustle stats that you would normally expect to see from young team that is scrapping and trying to keep the ball in the air. While you're great stars is injured who we've seen what Brandon Ingram does. When he tries to play with more passion, it has to be a force thing. And he got in a fight. Like that was he showed his new teammate that he wasn't somebody that was going to get pushed around, but it doesn't translate to play because it's out of character. He has to physically grow and get bigger to where those bumps feel different. And then. Confidence builds. But right now, he's still a young slender dude plan against grown men, and he's not going to get angry and hall cout like that just the real world doesn't work like that these moments and everybody's gonna go. Well, if he's not that guy get rid of them. I you need to you need to preach patients because these are the moments that help shape and define not just athletes, but men and women everywhere these moments where everybody's questioning what kind of person you are. And are you mentally tough enough? Whether you're a basketball player, you're on the radio your banker, you work at price club, and people are going to check your mental toughness all the time. Whether it's a boss, a co worker, a critic on Twitter or whoever it is. And those are the moments that helped shape and build you. He's had one of those moments where he got in a fight and the right failure. Right. Then that's word is. Okay. People get so scared of it that word is fine. You don't need to worry about getting humiliated on social media because you failed. So that's good. We acknowledged. That that was a mistake and failure. And he hasn't done that sense. But when you say passion, and the guy hasn't been able to show it in any way, but one form so far you might be asking for something that that young man's not ready for yet. And it may simply not be within him. But he's too young to just write him off. You're listening to Caspian Los Angeles. Yeah. You know, part of it is I guess he's not developing at the rate that I expected him to develop. I mean, he is not into have actually regressed. He he is not shown any growth from last year. If anything he's. On par with last year. Okay. But I have not seen mean, I'm I'm on record saying for the last couple of years. I think ultimately Brandon Ingram becomes an all star. I think I was way over my skis. When I said now, it's more Brandon Ingram becomes part of a three team trade. I would. Is. And by the way, I don't think that's necessarily of of stupid suggestion anymore. This. I think it I think at this point. I mean, is is Brandon Ingram a guy that you see see a guy that you look at it as a trade piece, or is he guy you look at us a foundational piece where you like you like looking at sports teams with as assets, right, right talent. They have is asset. So all of them are assets. And then you claim sort of the ones that are your building blocks your foundation that you're going to build on any draft pick that they've made I love Josh heart. I think he's more than most people think he is. I think he could become like a tougher Bruce Bowen, but everybody should be on the trading block. If you can improve the team, right? When Magic Johnson came his sole function wasn't to make them relevant. They're already relevant people try to go while stars can play anywhere now in the become huge stars Jaanus is not a huge star. Okay. He is in the NBA. World. But he's not the star. He could be because he plays in Milwaukee. I'm not sure that by the way, his digital footprint is not but air it would be if he was in New York. I watched a twenty minute profile, sixty minutes about Yoenis you. Did you did? But not not everyone did like he's not the household name. He's better than guys getting more more fame than him. He's better than guys getting more fame than him. He's a jumper way. You're saying being a star is just about your address. No, I'm not saying that it's about your personality if LeBron if Janas was in Los Angeles, he'd be a mega mega Stowe becoming to start. Just a one tool thing like you have to have the personality to do it. But if you don't have the personality and you're in the right location. You can still become a bigger star than those with bigger personalities in smaller spaces where they can't be because Jaanus is arguably right now the most valuable player in the National Basketball Association. He's probably he's certainly top three guy. This may. I wouldn't argue that at all. So if he put up an MVP year in Los Angeles, he would be a megastar you're saying just as address ligaments, look at it like YouTube there, you'll see channels that have thirty million subscriber, right? And the content is unwatchable like there's there's no talent there. But they were in the right space, it clicked with the right group and that built and you'll see other people who have incredible content, and they have two hundred us, right? Two hundred us because it's that content is not in the right space, or they didn't tag it properly or they don't have the right man tags connected to it or they're not following the YouTube algorithms, and that's what getting seen and exposure. Does. It just gets more eyeballs on you. Now, you have to prove it, right? You have to prove it like JR Smith was a star when he was in New York not anymore. You know what? I mean, he was talked about all the time on ESPN in New York not anymore. So, you know, these things do matter, and it's not as much as it was. But the digital footprint, isn't this all? Powerful thing. You still need household is to see you there. Still a grass roots that needs to develop and you do that through stronger exposure, by the way, the LeBron James is expected to be reevaluated on Friday, if he were to play Friday night who is Friday is I know Utah's if Friday Utah. Wednesday's who's Wednesday. When's day on Wednesday was Utah? Maybe how come on Detroit Detroit, Detroit, then Utah? So that would be the Friday game at Utah. If he were to play that would mean, he has missed ten games so far the Lakers lost five out of six without him. I wouldn't review them in a cold weather city. I just wouldn't debut 'em. What Sunday against the Cavs at Staples Center in LA, where it's warm where it's warm your body start playing indoors, which matter if it's cold weather's warm weather, say the NFL Jared Goff old thing you get older. Yeah. And you get out of bed or warm room. Yeah. Your body hurts if it's cold outside it just does it's called arthritis starts to get us. All don't act like you don't feel it because I feel I do not feel it. Then you're superman, but other people do. Yeah. And cold cities. It's a little harder to get up. It takes longer for your body to warm up which already takes longer to warm up because you're getting older, I'm telling you, man, okay, boards and cold weather, cold weather, cities when you start to get older our. So we know D N P C D, right, right? This is this would be a D N P C W. Yes. Cold weather, did not that. I agree. As a matter of fact, you should pull what do you think of that the cold weather to quote, him other cities? Yeah. I know he should only play in warm weather. Now on you cannot go play any other city that has basketball shouldn't even be allowed to have it. Right. Then California have thirteen teen. Yes. We would you would would you have the walnut wizards Washington wizard shout out to walnut. You know? He never has to step outside the dillmore Cavaliers John Ireland could call Cavs. Hey, by the way, tonight national championship game is in Palo Alto. Which is great because you've got Alabama and Clemson both from the south going all the way up to threat would northern California. It's perfect which is a beautiful stadium by the the Palo Alto. Pacer? Have you ever been stadium? What do they call Levi's stadium? Right. Yes. That was wrestlemainia was there like four or five years ago actually winter God, it's a beautiful stadium. It really is. Put a hip toss on triple h what back when Rhonda. Oh, no, Ronda, Rousey, right wrestlemainia, first time, she ever did like a WW and she went with Iraq. And they actually got in the ring and did a hip toss on. Eight nice crowd when they fill up Levi stadium for this sold at out sold it out niner's game was even played there. Yeah. It's a beautiful. You know, the great thing about it is no matter where you are in that stadium. You have complete five bars WI fi access on your phone. I would no I was on the field. Yeah. You are on the field, of course for my perfect on there. But like if you go to a Rams game go to a Lakers game. I've never been to the stubhub center. So I'm not sure and they changed the name of the stubhub center. Again, what is it? Now, it's like the TicketMaster arena or the the home banking of America sociation or something like that. They gave it a new name by their charges. Though, you go there for a soccer game soccer absolutely rodeo there. Check out the rodeo, Freddie, doesn't hear me. It is the dignity health sports park. Name. Hello. The charge now playing the San Diego. Chargers are now playing at dignity dignity health, hell, part, you know, that Michael. SP? Spe- getting hard to Brian first slogan. Health is a good thing. We all want dignity, but that is the least catchy name. I would argue in all of professional sport. What is what is called Siham? Now, the calcium changed. Also, isn't it? Not yet bad as that. It's going to it's going to be United Airlines field at the Los Angeles memorial. Grants. It it could be it could be the O surprise Coliseum and doing better than the dignity health teriyaki bowl, or whatever they by the way and the chargers play their when I think chargers, I think dignity health. Holes because down in San Diego. It was very healthy to go to very healthy, very healthy. Hey, by the way, the missed field goal in the bears game. I happened to catch this this morning over there on the get up show was which I watch every morning is incredible. The double. I was I was like no oh God. Winning after the first like oh watch. It still went through and hit the other had the crossbar. So here's the eagles Spanish language call. This is going to be money of the missed field goal. Again. The eagle Spanish language. I see. Thank you. There. You have got to play that for Ireland. Yeah. We'd love that. I'm not sure why. But Spanish-language announcers get to be total and complete homers, and nobody complaints. But if you're an English language announcer, and you're a Homer, everybody bitches about you because the Spanish language, call is thousand times better. It's fun and exciting there homers. Good like, those guys are homers Luddite fine kit made that sound and ridiculed by their own family from birth. So they don't care what social media says in white households. Don't say that to your brother. Jimmy. Oh, don't be mean. Little Tommy, hey, that hurts his feelings Jackson like that's why white families are afraid to like be homers because they don't want get insulted on social media Spanish people like whatever, bro. I heard it. All ready. They don't care there. You have. All right coming back next to the very latest on cliff Kingsbury. We've got an update on that next. Plus we'll dig in a little bit to the Rams and Cowboys Saturday night the. Night game at the Coliseum on Saturday, by the way. Apparently, we played an incorrect. Call we will try to figure that out next Mason, Ireland ESPN LA. All right. So first of all, I knew there was something. Not quite right. I just got back from El Salvador, and I said. I don't know. I j LA its name was being yelled repeatedly. And then the call I heard this morning on Ellen by the way, somebody said I stole this from the morning show as everybody knows I still thinks from get up. I don't steal things from the morning show. So that's where it stolen from fairly morning show play video games. So this is the Spanish language call you need. No, send your of the misses. The Cody parkey field goal at the end of that bears. Igal s- game. Cody parkey wanting out of this. That's limited. No. Anyway. With the brakes true. With a shoe goes. Call that is Conan thing. Knows in your no saying their song. I know gave it to him. He gave it to. How do you go on with life? If you're Cody parkey that's going to be tough, man. There's another clip that you can't play because the guy dropped so many F bombs. But there was a dude is just called f Cody. Oh, really there's a video going around on social media. You can't play a single second of it. So don't even try till the break. But if the rest, you wanna know how mid on too many steroids feel about Cody perky, you can go and watch that. That's gotta be worse than Gary Anderson with the with the Vikings and ninety eight right? Yeah. Who really want? Gary Austin didn't have to deal with social media talk. Norwood was the worst one right? And again, not with social media. That's Kate kit deal with that for a little bit on local news, national news. This guy has to deal with it on. So he's going to become a gif. He's going to become a mean, that's a different level of humiliation in shame. Sure. Somebody's already put the crying Jordan on. His face. I thought this was kind of cool. There were a number of NBA players who came out in support of Cody Haughey. Did you see this? Parkey Dwayne Wade. Most of you have no idea how hard this is to do Cody parkey way to face the media like a true professional. I'm fan the Mamba we've all been here, Cody, but if you wanna win back to city, you gotta get back in the lab and have a stork season next year to bury this one NFL. Let him I'm happy for my eagles nation. But as a fellow pro athlete, you gotta grind harder and double down hashtag. No excuses. Judge. I don't even know what that means judge. Sure judge shit. Yeah. Famous crease Greek quote, ever judges. Can I pull you real fast Mason because you you like to get up? Right. I love the get up. Okay. So Rex Ryan, by the way, like putting the I like putting a definite forever for the get up get up. What's funny? You call it the get up now. People actually call it are saying like on the getup. Yeah. I think they should change the name to the Guetta. It's just get up people put it all the time as the get up. I don't know about you. Or what it's because the movement that up I've found there's a there's a clip of Rex Ryan on on the get up talking about how talking about the misfield goal, and he rips in to Cody parkey, I'm gonna play for my computer. So might not sound. That's all right. Rex is a head coach. Let's start with the kick. Let's start with that final players on. It's my thoughts. Are you got one job to do? I mean it comes down to one play. And every coaches who always be like, well, it's not just one. Yes. It is a job. Do you that kicks in the fact, she didn't like I don't feel sorry for a lot of feel sorry for that kid really feel sorry for this team mates and everybody else the fan base and everybody else you let down I'm sure that's this doesn't prepare. They don't do meetings. They don't do that. You make a kick in that situation. You you've got to sit back. That's what your professional. It's like a golfer missing a four foot putt. Yup. If you're a pro you make it, and that's what this kid's got to do. I don't feel sorry for maybe. That's the evidence. His single. All off the yo. It's not even ice cold. It's so ignorant and. Oh a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute feel bad for his team. He feel bad for him. So if Tiger Woods misses the putt than feel bad for his kids. Don't feel bad for the wait a minute. No tiger. Tiger Woods misses. A putt at on him. You're so you feel bad for him right versus this is a field goal tying feel people feel bad. I feel bad for bears fans, I feel bad for the he'll bad for Mitch Trubisky who and you don't feel bad for the rally. Got I feel bad for Torri Cohen who had a great kickoff return and got them great field position famous people, whether they're athletes our musicians like they could dehumanize to the point where they're like there's no feelings for them like their stock to two like why old game? And then this philosophy comes in where it's like to hell with it was like, your are you serious? They did this to your guy said he hoped he got cancer. And I mean, that's that's different from. I don't feel sorry for him that. Wow. I feel sorry for the dude who loses the fight as much as I like as much as I wanted to know this guy hit crossbars like seven times nine times x. Number. But yeah, there's not gonna be any second chance. It's kind of on the bears because the bears went into the playoffs with a guy who had missed eight field goals this year. So if you got a guy who missed eight field goals this year. I feel for the dude Cyrus I'm in. I'm with Rex you'll so is I'm with Rasa. Would you play to win the game? What he's people his name. Data screen known. Not Dennis Green, the other Herm Edwards Edward Sam. That's right. Was on hard knocks when he coached the chiefs. They were talking about final cuts, and they brought up kickers any literally looks at his assistant because it's the kicker like, they don't know. That's true. Don't care. No. He's right. That's NFL. People feel about one job that level of passion. About a kicker from X? Ryan just makes me flush that whole statement member never pet. Remember never pet. Pin meaning called Mike van jet. An idiot kicker. So I mean, it's the kicker's fault is all right. He was a broken quarterback sick and Super Bowl balances out that loss is absolutely on Cody park. I agree. I just got. All right. It's twenty three thirty which means. You gotta be seven thirty Mason Ireland ESPN LA, what is going on, Freddie, prince junior. And for by the way, that's one of the most exciting things about tonight's college. Football national championship game. Halftime. What my guys imagine dragging plan? Halftime college football national champion, my kids like them a lot, man. I love magic dragon too much pop music. I'm not a big pop music. They sort of bridge. They get one foot in pop and one foot in rock. Yeah. The kind of split the split the middle. Still have any snoop back there. This was in every college football for for the entire season. The was tonight. Walk everyone. I love we've already accrued always got the entire real danger. You don't even have to watch tonight. Now, you don't have any glue or gang Starr wreck everything we came in with meek mill. Are you kidding me? That's new stuff. With them suspicious character strapped with the sound for Reynolds from Las Vegas. Imagine. Big L. There's your halftime show. No now, you're doing twice J doubled up on it. All right. So I was gonna say down in El Salvador was on vacation in El Salvador retreat, and I was yoga health retreat. Yes. Correct. And I was yes, healthy, I got very healthy three hours a day. I meant I meant healthy. Yeah. Three hours of yoga dignity and health like the arena. So it's all psyched to go surfin. Right. I've never tried surfing before. I'm like, yeah. I'm the fifty three you never tried surfing. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio, you think well. Yeah. I've always said like neurosis about sharks. Okay. I've always been like there is a shark certainly waiting for me. Okay. So I've gotten over that fear the last couple years. So I'm like, all right. So it's fischel. I'm going to go surfing. So I I don't go out. But other people go out and they get stung by stingrays. And did you not go out specifically because you were scared to go out or something else happen? I did not go out because people were getting stung by stingrays. Okay. There were stingrays apparently in this particular area the beach. It was great surfing. But there were stingrays out there. And there was no frigging way. I was going to go out on my vacation gets stung by a Stingray. Okay. And I think their stings are fairly significant. Right. I've never been stung by one. They have their tail, but I don't know if it's considered a sting jellyfish sting. I think you can get caught by the barb on a Stingray. That's what you do you get caught by the bar. Have you ever been stung by a jellyfish never been stung by jellyfish Puerto Rico, got stung by when I was twelve and my Poppel his name was Wilson Ramirez. He told me to an Cup and poured it on my arm, and it worked that is exactly what people roses that I got stung by a blue. In hawaii. Once it's still the official treatment for most ocean stings of any kind really anything anything better. Pouted better than windex. Yeah. No. I got I got scraped up on what do they call urchins? Did you not have dec- shoes on why got scrape? I got scratched up. I climbed up on a dock in Greece and got scraped didn't finish the surfing story. Did you all ended up not going on? Aw, home as getting stung by sting for. They weren't there. Every day. You could have served at different braille. I was told that this particular part of the beach. There are a lot of stingrays. You couldn't there's other doing it. Not doing it, man. Break. There was one great break. Probably the best in all of awareness to great surfing trolley choral, which means you get the same wave every time here. It's a samba different. Did you hurt yourself? At normally on vacation you hurt yourself in some way. I took one really good fall. Nightime? It was nighttime post dancing. There were a lot of steps. One hundred twelve steps up to my room. I repent day up and down up and down maybe five six times. And I did there was a good tumble about three. I'm one night. All the way down not all the way. Yes. Exactly. I did not hit every step on the way down lost in New York. But the injuries were considered minor good. They're always minor. You always bounce back always to bounce Fouts. I was do do whether car or on a basketball. So if you are if you're looking for this update on cliff Kingsbury it starting to sort itself out a little bit more. So if you're not following this story over the weekend came out that multiple NFL teams specifically the cardinals and the jets both interested in USC offense coordinator has been there. Ten minutes cliff Kingsbury. And initially wind swan said, Nope, we're not going to grant permission to those teams. No better job for you. Now cliff had an option at that point cliff could have paid his own buyout in order to be free to take a job either a head coaching job or coordinator job in the NFL. Now, what appears to be happening is that Kingsbury has been released by Lynn Swann to speak with NFL teams about head coaching jobs. So in other words, yes, Clint we grant the cardinals permission to speak to cliff Kingsbury about the head coaching job same with the jets, but we're not releasing him to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL. That's what he was going to do for us. And those opportunities were out there for him when he actually signed. So it's a rep. So. Seems like as long as you rather one an OC job in the NFL head coach mall trying to be a head coach. He's out. Yeah. No, no. No, no, no. They're not granting permission to talk to teams about offense coordinator who would want to have that conversation. If people are willing to have a head coach conversation. That's so when I'm gone what I'm assuming. No, no what I'm assuming happens is cardinals go somewhere else for a head. Coach jets go somewhere else for a head coach Kingsbury offensive coordinator for USC. Here's why I think he's going to be a jet. The jets are all about media moments because they never have a good season. They're about making hot splashy one. Hold that hold that thought. Yeah. We'll do that next Ireland ESPN LA. Hey, what's going on Mason, Ireland, ESPN LA, Freddie, prince junior in for John? You're just talking about how you think cliff Kingsbury is gonna wind up head coach of the jets, y okay the jets and their ownership group seem to make better media decisions than football decisions. Let me let me sort of classify when I say media decisions they try to win off seasons. They try to get hot names. They try to do things that will keep that New York media off their back because the New York media's brutal. They've sort of always been susceptible to that under the the Woody Johnson ownership. Right. And that's the kind of move that makes perfect sense for them to make everybody loves cliff Kingsbury. Let's get him. We won't get criticized. Don't. Billionaires are above not liking criticism there. Plenty that don't enjoy hearing that stuff about him. There's some that don't care, right. Like, vince. Yeah, I'm doing you say, whatever you want, whatever. But he's he's alpha personality, not every billionaires alpha. Like, there's a lot of beta personalities out there that like everybody's saying this stuff about my football team. You think I bought this to get ridiculed and made fun of no like those conversations exists than happen at every level, regardless of whether it's a football team or Donut shop, so he's someone that's always been driven by that. And it seems like a very Woody Johnson move. So I think and with no disrespect to cliff Kingsbury who I think is a great offensive mind. The idea of cliques cliff Kingsbury right now is better than cliff Kingsbury, which is why I think the jets would make a mistake and do that he won. And this is from somebody named Tom for Nellie. He wants forty seven percent of his games at Texas Tech, including a nineteen and thirty five record in. In the big twelve. He couldn't get another head coaching job in college this year. But NFL teams want to give him. Head coaching job. I. I don't think there's ever been a hotter market for a guy who has had little success as cliff Kingsbury. You can thank your coach is LA. Rams. You can think Sean McVay everybody wants the young futuristic offense. Everybody's looking for that. They think that's the key to everything there seeing what the chiefs are doing. They're seeing what the Rams are doing. I know and he's not a young guy but his offense scored forty points a week. So he doesn't have to play defense and they see that as the success. And the NFL has always followed trends one somebody finds a little wrinkle in it. Everyone does their version of it until it ceases to work and they'll go back to regular football. But they follow trends, and that would be a perfect trend following it. Doesn't matter what his record was in college. It's about his energy. It's about his vision of the offense. That's what they're going to sell their fan base on whether they're right or wrong. So here's a guy. I think is going to be the best hire for an NFL team this year. It's going to be Matt leflore who was the quarterbacks. Coach for actually technically the offense coordinator for the ramps. I thought he was the last cabinet for the average Joes. But yeah continue last year this year. He was offensive coordinator for the Tennessee titans. He is that next young great offense of mind. So does he's got the McVeigh playbook. But now he had a quarterback in Tennessee that wasn't necessarily pocket quarterback. Although he could do that what kind of quarterback does that guy like to work with though because well, I gotta tell you. I don't care like one of the jobs. It's open and one of the jobs that leflore has been linked to is Aaron Rodgers. I don't care what kind of quarterback you went to work with if you can work with Aaron Rodgers probably pretty good shape. I from now. A lot of years because they don't worry Carthy. He's gonna get a head coaching job any minute dollars. Because erin. Exactly. Yeah. That one Mike McCarthy's fault? But I, but I do think floor is going to be one of the next. Great young. He's thirty nine thirty eight thirty nine years old. What's cliffs, what's Kingsbury? He's got to be like thirty five thirty six. Probably he's been doing it for a while. Right. Well, he quarterbacked OC than college head coach seventy nine. So that makes them thirty nine. Okay. So he's just a little bit younger than me. Yeah. He's in that same age range. I'm telling you, it seems like a jets move the floor is an flashier name. Then Kingsbury the jets like flash. The floor makes me think a dodgeball the movie leflore has had NFL experience as a direct. He's in the McVay tree. Yeah. Kingsbury has not had college success. Not a lot of headlines on the floor. The jets like headlines they like positive press all over this. They're going this way. They've all this is a Woody Johnson like perfect. I don't think it's the right move, by the way, but the perfect Woody Johnson move. These are when all the things every time he's been criticized as an owner and it's almost every single season in the off season. He goes and makes a move that he thinks is going to be media-friendly, and it has never worked out. And this seems like a perfect media-friendly moved because everyone loves him that probably won't work out. I think it's not a big jets. Yeah. Nor my, but if you've got a young quarterback, and I'm sure that's why was Sam darnold. The jets are looking at him. I'm sure that's why with Josh Rosen. The cardinals are looking at him. I still think probably despite the fact that it was a bad look to start with blocking him from talking to the NFL about head coaching jobs. Lynch swan probably played this thing right now. Because I don't think he will get either the jets job or the Zona jump. You. Really don't. I don't Dylan. Oh, that's good for a see. It's good for us. He I think with the I happy. I think we're gonna. Wind up. I mean, I think we're gonna wind up with him offensive coordinator, which is were starving. Yeah. That free. Doors. Heavy shaking out for anybody feeling everything. Real in here. Door. I am. So. All right. So let's do some Lakers here. Lakers lose by thirty two to the Minnesota Timberwolves. They did the natural thing they fired their head coach. And so. Which is what you do. Big win. Thank you. You won by thirty two. You're gone tiptoes out at at Minnesota. But aside from that it was it was a terrible game for the Lakers. They've looked. They looked as bad as they've looked in any game this year. Brandon Ingram five of sixteen from the field. No three point attempts. Lonzo ball, no points to assists. Josh heart three of twelve from the field and fix them reason. All those numbers are in my hand. That's cool. Looking at anything. And I think I'm wondering if it's time to start dialing down the expectations for Brandon Ingram. I've been amongst his biggest fans I said, I think Brandon Ingram is going to be an all star player in this league. I don't see development year over year. Now, make no mistake. I think regardless he is gonna wind up traded at some point. Do you agree with that? I think so I will say this an Anthony Davis trade this season is not something anybody's really thinking about. But I think we should be thinking. Yes. Because of the Boston for as the Boston threat, and I understand them. But this is the moment that Brandon Ingram is under pressure to treat him in. That moment is quitting on him before you've sort of seen what kind of man, he can become this is I said this earlier in the show. But this is the time to be patient to see if this moment can make or break him and to see if he can sort of break out of this before LeBron comes back and fixes and saves everybody. And all of a sudden they man the teams playing much better defense and the offense is flowing so much, but. Yeah. That's because of LeBron James changing every aspect of the basketball game. So while he's gone instead of us just harping on him understand like give him the time to see if he can start to have one two maybe three games before LeBron comes back. Although I don't think there are that many left until the run comes back. Right. But to at least see if he can sort of push through this and give you at least one good game. If he can't. And you think that's enough time to sort of figure like, hey, there's a lot of pressure on them. He didn't sort of pull through then you can talk about it this season to get ahead of Boston. But I don't know how valuable he is if he's playing this poorly. You're asking them to take a trade based purely on prospects. My thought is is he to some degree being exposed which will lower his trade value as we get towards the summer will. I think if they would have six men him when he came back that would have been assigned that he wasn't gonna get traded that they were gonna give him more time to develop a not put so much. Do think that because it would be less pressured the fact that they put him right back in made me think. Hey, let's showcase him. Let's build him up. And then let's make a move. If he was sitting on the bench. I feel there'd be less pressure. They'd be like you'll man. Let's relax. Let's get you enough to bench. You can dominate some second team guys as you get confident will work you back in the starting lineup. They threw them right back in right? When he wasn't playing when he went out. So to me that was like, hey, let's showcase let's let's let this guy shine. Let's let's show what we have in the sky and see if he develops. He just hasn't yet. Let me pick on that point and say that coming up for you in four minutes. We've got fasttrack Ireland ESPN LA.

Anyway, it is a Wednesday. There is a lot of stuff going on from a business standpoint in the NFL, which is why we're so blessed fortunate to have our guy Andrew Brandt, always the former longtime executive with the Green Bay Packers to go over all this stuff. His thoughts on Kyla Murray playoff money. What it means the finality of playoffs being over the big show. Andrew I want to dive right into it with. There's only four teams left and you are in the playoffs pretty much every year when you were an executive for the Packers. I just want to look back. And and what do you remember about the day after you lose the playoff game? Or even when you lose that playoff game. And just the fine -ality of it because every year when you get in especially when you had far Aaron Rodgers, whatever you're thinking, we got a shot. We we got a shot to go. Do this thing. What do you remember from that? Yeah. That's so stark Rosca day. It's really talking about that word sign -ality was always the issue. It just seems like what is it like sixteen hours ago? You gotta shot to go to the next round of the playoffs or anarchy. A couple of times the Super Bowl. And now you're cleaning out boxes and the locker room is emptying out and within hours and that morning after and for those four teams that was yesterday or that was Monday it's over and it's ghost town. And they've cleared out and the finalities very stark because whether it's the day after the season for twenty teams the day after the wildcard round for four teams day after visual round for four teams. And then we'll will get to after championship around for two teams and even the Super Bowl loser. To one team. It's just so funnel. You see the locker room empty out? You see the coaches? It's interesting. This is something no one thinks about but the coaches are wearing street clothes, right? They're not wearing the team issued sweats that was always start to me. Like, oh, they're wearing like, you know, polo shirt or they're wearing a button. Down or they're wearing jeans and not sweats. It was an interesting time. I always tell the story there players that sort of walk out and looked at me and sit Andrew do you have to stay here in the off season. I said, yeah, it's my job. I'm here. You know, kinda curious like what are you guys do? So, you know, players have a mentality like they're off. And here's the thing. Ross the CBA we talked about this many times. Mandates a three months vacation. Like, you can't even come back. If you want to like, you can't even use the way room. You can't even talk to coaches about football. Sure, you can talk personal these and tell you who your friends are you can't even talk to strengthen conditioning coaches. I mean, it's really something. Now where they tell you go and get away and do not come back till April. So this is really a weird time where it all changes. And you think about a bustling busy locker room for six months and on this day dead over gone nothing in the pit players lockers nothing. So it took always took me a while maybe two weeks to sort of get used to that. And I guess the last note is I guess it was a positive because into winter months. Once at least my time in Green Bay, I use that what team weight room team sauna team steam, very often. Because no one else was using it. That's awesome. I missed that stuff for sure the amenities of the team buildings pretty cool. What about playoff bonuses? Did you have? Did you have a playoff bonus in your contractor? How many people do you remember because I remember even places where I think even like the equipment guys and stuff get bonuses. I don't know about the trainers or the team doctors. But there are definitely I think the trainers. Do get plop bonuses. Don't they? Yeah. I mean, listen everyone's got a different deal. Let's be clear for listeners playoff. Bonuses. In player contracts are for performance getting into the playoffs playoffs. Get players. Get shares per round from the NFL that's way beyond their contract. So what players make this week is beyond their contract unless we can the week before as I tweet it out the other day drew Brees made twenty seven million this year per contract and made twenty nine thousand in the playoffs for two weeks one week. He wasn't even paid on the by. So it's so different. Yes. I did have a playoff bonus in my contract. In terms of how far we'd Vance there'd be different amounts coaches have those at least head coaches, I don't speak to assistant coaches because I never really negotiated those. So, yeah, they're all kinds of bonuses. That are in these contracts at different levels for performing play offs. You know in negotiating my own contract that was part of it. But also if you're managing the finances and the cap your goal is to have the team do well in the present and the future. So I wouldn't go shake terms for future, performance and cat, performance and lack of dead money. Those kind of things as well. I also wanted to talk to you about the Cuyler Murray situation, which is really interesting we found out on Monday that he has submitted his paperwork to the NFL to enter the NFL draft. I know I've seen your tweets at Andrew Brandt that you know, that this is not ending any time soon the leverage game continues. What's kind of your breakdown on the Cuyler Murray situation, you know, kinda snuck up on us Ross that my, you know, my expertise the business of sports here. It is this guy has unique leverage. And I haven't paid as much attention as some to this this Kyle Murray. But I didn't realize he was whatever it was the ninth pick or the top one of the top picks and the MLB draft and projected to be the same in the NFL draft. And and I'm just looking at it as this is maybe like a one in a million. I mean, maybe we think back to people listening may not even know the name even remember Bo Jackson, and maybe John Elway who had a bit of a baseball career. But wow, unique leverage. So I think he did the right thing by declaring for the NFL draft to keep that option open. There was talk as everyone read that he wanted fifteen million from the as and I looked at it. And I said why that's for more than fifteen million is kind of a guarantee for mid first round NFL. Maybe he doesn't go mid I run NFL. But why only ask for that? Because you're trying to get someone to play a sport. And unless I've missed it. He hasn't really tipped his hand on what he really wants, you know, because somewhere in his gut he wants to be a baseball or football player. And I think. That's good too. Because he's keeping the leverage open. Listen, the Oakland A's, I read or making all these marketing presentations, because they seem to have limits on how much they can do contractually imagine that, you know, imagine a baseball team almost like, you know, going to LeBron or Kevin Durant and showing what they can do beyond the maximum salary. It's like, wow, this kid has truly unique leverage. So this is something we'll follow because he's a declared for the draft which you had to do by the fourteenth, and the as aren't going away as I understand it. So they may come back with more. He's still has them, you know, groveling, and this will go on and wow and good for him. So a couple of different thoughts. Here. Andrew a number one. By the way. There's there's several reports out that he likes football more than baseball, and he's never really disputed that. But he's you know, I think you'd like. Some both. But I mean, I think the very fact Andrew that he went with the nine ninety got the ninth overall pick in baseball four point six million dollars. But put in the contract that he gets to play one year of college football is probably a pretty good indicator of that. Right. I mean, if you like baseball more he probably would have just started playing baseball and try to get to the majors as soon as he could what I think's interesting about it. I mean, there's there's a million different layers to it. But reportedly, you know, the way baseball works. I think you know, this Andrew is you get the big signing bonus. But then you get paid the same salary in single a ball as anybody else or AA and AAA, and you can't get a major league contract till you get to the majors and reportedly they're talking about a loophole and waving that restriction and some sitting here thinking, Andrew, wow. Is this kid worth it? Because you always say. No word precedent. Is this kid worth setting that precedent of you don't have to make the major leagues to get a major league contract, especially when it seems like he doesn't really want to play baseball. And is just if he if he does this. It's for the money part of it. I'm surprised that major league baseball will do that. Because that word you always talk about great point. You're right. If baseball does this for him, they're going to be others saying why don't you do it for me or maybe others in the past? That say why didn't you do this for me? And again, what baseball is seeing is an incredible opportunity to get a Heisman Trophy winning football player who comes in with a built-in marketing base. I mean you and I aren't baseball aficionados. But if he comes into the major league baseball or the minor leagues. How many players have a built in marketing beyond him ten twenty in the entire major leagues. If you're gonna if you're a non baseball fan you've heard of him. How many have you heard of behind him ten twenty in the major league baseball? So yes to me every action has a reaction. And if they bend the rules for color Murray. You're right. Wow. First reaction is continuing reaction of. Wow. This kid has unique leverage. Second reaction is base was have to pay for that. 'cause there's going to be another. And maybe baseball thinks this will never happen. And yes, there may never be a Heisman Trophy winner with this kind of opportunity, but there will be others and baseball setting themselves up again, these are rumors. So if they do that now there's a line in the sand. They've done it before. And they're going to be agents and play. Looking at that heart. But I just think what's going to happen is we're going to see where this kid is drafted. And if he can keep the as and on on the line and told then, you know, maybe they have an opportunity if he's drafted lower than people expect. But I think you've tipped it. He or he's tipped it that he wants to play football. Speaking of contracts. Andrew, I think it's interesting that a guy like Cody parkey signed a four year fifteen million dollar deal in the offseason nine million, Andrew fully guaranteed, and he's only one year into it. In fact, three point five million dollars of his base salary is fully guaranteed for next year. And here the team is already talking about the need to improve the position. I mean, what does that say in your mind about paying kickers paying the kicking position? Because it it seems like sometimes that that happens. Yeah. I mean, there seems some some obvious candidates to be paid Gus cow ski Justin Tucker, maybe add minitary despite a tough day the other day. I just think that. For whatever reason we talk about this word. It's been a theme of this segment. Cody parkey had leverage. I'm not sure how other suitors would be the primary way. But to get that kind of guarantee as a kicker, you must have leverage must have had other teams trying to get them. And yes, three point five million on the hook for this year. My sense without having dig through the contract, it's offset guarantees. So if they do part ways, maybe he gets a million five two million from another team takes the bears off the hook for that amount. But listen, I saw what you saw Cody parkey became kind of an empathetic hero last week. And was on the today show. I saw that segment, and you see reports out of Chicago that Ryan pace and matinee Gigi weren't entirely pleased with him going on the today show and becoming a empathetic hero around the country. And. And that tells me he's gone. You know, no, I think people can listen and say. What about that? What about the bears brass having a problem with that? I don't know. I mean, it's pretty throat. The guy was asked to come on these national television shows and did so I mean if he was asked to do so any made the kick with ever problem with that? I just don't get that. And it seems like I don't know if it'll be a grievance or anything like that. But if this goes the way it looks like it's going to go. Maybe there'd be more empathy for Cody parkey. But it looks like it'd be on another team. That's a good point. I hadn't even thought of that. I think there's probably pretty good chance. He does get released. And then I don't know how much empathy. Do you have a guy that's got three point five million dollars fully guaranteed even though he didn't do a very good job at his job. I guess the last thing I'll I'll mention today Andrew, and there's some more stuff. We'll get into next week about assistant coaches, and as that continues to swirl. Mentioned already but playoffs from a business perspective. And just how important they are to a franchise obviously, everybody wants to go to the playoffs and win the Super Bowl and all that stuff. But just getting to the playoffs. What does that mean for these teams and and winning playoff games? Is there does the team? I know what the players get what what what are the teams get for advancing in the playoffs. It's hard to quantify. You know, what we did in Green Bay? We tried to an economic impact. But that's for home games. And yeah, we thought home games provided another avenue for economic input around Green Bay around Wisconsin. I don't have the number in front of me book several several million dollars. So obviously meant a lot to the community in terms of quantifying advancing. It just continues to be named value brand and brand building having that in your. Offer in terms of name. I don't really know. In terms of what it does from bottom economic line. I think what happens is you can go to your customers your sponsors your network partners, not necessarily, you know, national, but you're preseason your radio, and now, you're dealing and your and your suites your suite holders your club seat holders. And now you're doing with a different product. Right. So if your product it's multiple playoffs, always contending, you can charge more. And so the quantifiable numbers really are long term. You know, you have a team now in Kansas City that is poised for immediate success. But now with this quarterback poised for long term success. So to me their businesses booming because they're doing well now, and they're going to continue to do. Well. So that's always. A nice thing and of the quarterbacks left you have him in Goff where you can look at your fan base and say, we're good. You know, we're good for the long term that makes a lot of difference to me. And the last thing again, I recognize the NFL makes so much money off these play offs because they're only paying players a pittance to play in these games compared to what they make on their contracts. So again, drew Brees makes potentially two hundred thousand dollars if he wins the whole thing. Well, he made whatever two point six million a week during the season. Right. And that was kind of my that was kind of my my point was going to be. I I didn't know if the team's got extra money or not. But it doesn't sound like they do. I mean, just whatever the split is of the day, even get the split of the attendance. How does that work because here's the difference because everything after the regular season is our league events everything bef- in the season or team events. So yes, Kansas City New Orleans are hosting and there's some kind of formula between the league and the home team, but these are league events leagues are league money is paying these players not team money and these are league events that make a lot of money for the league because the playoff pays low. And again, people ask me about playoff pay and the CBA and the union added to the list, that's something you wanna change for players. There's a long list union has right now Andrew. You're the man always appreciate the time. You are good. And you're gonna be good. I think you just said about something. Thank you. Thanks less. Presented pry one of the cool things about this job. Is that I love when I become aware of a new company. That's awesome. That I didn't know about previously and in new kinds at night heard about these concepts right where you can sign up, and you can either pick or get surprised with awesome boxes of different goodies, really really cool because obviously we're all so busy.

Ross will start today with some player news involving playoff teams saints signed tackled Tyron Walker to replace Sheldon rankings and the chiefs activated. Devante Tardif of VR and they released safety. Ron parker. That was impressive Bri. I mean, it's five thirty four. A m that was an impressive pronunciation for the ront. That was nice pick your on your on your a game. So tiring walkers interesting because he used to play for the saints. And then last year we actually played for the Rams now, he's he was a free agent. You got cut by somebody at some point. So now he gets signed by the saints to play against the Rams in the NFC championship game, not bad. I mean, he got cut during the year. And now he's gonna play in the NFC championship game. And they win that probably the Super Bowl. And actually, maybe even. Play to replace Sheldon rankings. The chiefs activating Laurent du Vernay Tardif. I'm I think I forget what he broke he broke his leg earlier in the year. And this is one of the guys that bring it back from my are. We'll see I I wonder if he starts that's one of the things to to watch this week if they feel like he's far enough back that he's not great over wildly at right guard. That'll be interesting and Ron Parker. I mean, Ron Parker played like eighty six percent of their snaps this year. But once they got Sorenson back. They were like, yeah. Don't really need Ron Parker anymore. So good news for do Varnay Tardif. But that stinks for Ron Parker. You play for team the whole year and then AFC championship game week. It's like see you later. On the coaching with the Broncos hired at Donatello as D coordinator. Jets are expected to do the same with Greg Williams and the colts surprisingly fired their own line. Coach. You're not even gonna try. I checked out after Tardif. Yeah. I'm I'm actually not even they call them googles. Is it duty OMO I've heard people pronounce it. Like, I didn't even spell it. Right on the notes pry, I've read some people pronounce it Dave to googly Elmo. I've heard some people like make that L silent like to do the Digal you mo-. I don't know they call them googles. The let's start with the Broncos. Ed, Don attell he hasn't been a coordinator. I don't think for a while. But he's got a long history of working with Vic Fangio, and really I mean Fangio was hired in large part because of his. Defensive akunin. So it's not as important in my opinion. At least who the coordinator is when the head coach is going to be the one that's running the show on that side of the ball. Right. It's like, okay. The Packers hired with Daniel Hackett. That's cool, but met leflore is going to be running the show and calling the plays off. It's at believe. So same thing here, and that's not the same with Greg Williams and Adam gays, and what I think is interesting there is, you know, Adam Schefter tweeted that this was the guy the jets had targeted all along as their D coordinator. No matter who the head coach was which. Totally reinforces the idea from you know, that we heard from Matt rule and the report there that they were trying to doing arranged marriage that they were trying to say this is who you have to have as your coordinator. Now, the jets denied that. And then Adam tweets that this is the guy they targeted all along. So that leads you to believe that one of the conditions and one of the things they wanted if you wanted to be head coach was they wanted to Greg Williams as the D coordinator. So there you go that kind of reinforces that right, then you've got. Degrom. Oh, gooky Elmo. I have no idea to none. That's a rough one right? Yeah. Dave googles very surprise. You guys know Greg Williams was my head coach from buffalo three and the D coordinator with the Redskins when I finished up my career, no seven, and I think he'll do an outstanding job there with the jets. He will love Jamal Adams like he'll love that guy. But the colts firing o line coach. I mean, they're lying so much better during the year. It's a real surprise. He had some quotes earlier in the year where he's like, I'm gonna do it my way if you don't like it. I'm not changing you need to get you know, you need to change. What you think get rid of me one of the other? Wow. So I don't know what that means. But Frank Reich wants to bring in his own guy because googles was actually hired by Josh mcdaniels. And so that's kind of part of the problem. They're just like Ebert flus was which it's just stunning to see a guy that seemingly did his job as well as Google no end up ended up losing his job. Frank Reich wanted to go in in a different direction wanted his own guy. And finally some scary news regarding falcons pass rusher. Tech McKinley detained by police and given a mental health evaluation. That's kind of all of the news. We have about it to this point. It was reported by TMZ, and he was not arrested. I think they let him go. But somebody he was with called the police, and they were concerned enough about him that you know, they reached out to the police, and they were they were concerned about how how he was behaving. So that's a little bit scary. And certainly something sort of to to keep an eye on and to monitor going forward for sure. NFL player. A question will here's your genius? It's time to ask rose. The Email address is Ross Ross Tucker dot com. We love your Email questions. We don't like them. We love them. And we love being able to get to a lot of them here in January. So please any question you've ever had. Heck if it's your team. That's great. If it's just about the NFL in general that's great to just keep sending them Ross at Ross Tucker dot com Ross at Ross Tucker dot com after you take advantage of any of our glorious wonderful sponsors as question. Hey ross. Hey, brian. Thanks for all that you do Ross. What is the wildest thing? You have witnessed on the field either as a player or as a reporter slash broadcaster, by the way, also joined bet online that AG still learning how to use it. So thank you for that recommendation. You guys rock that's from Jeff. Good question. Jeff Jeff's a bills fan that actually was the sponsor confirmation Email when recently so. There's a couple the one that jumps out to me. And I'm not gonna say the names just because I think it might be embarrassing to somebody. But. One of my years. I was starting. And we were on the sideline. And. We actually winning by like double digits, but we'd had a bad series where we were kind of sluggish. There were some steaks it cetera. Right. So the quarterback came over and said guys come on. We're better than that. Let's go we're better than that, stay focused. These guys can't stop us. And it wasn't like we were getting yelled out. It was just kind of this wasn't really his style. But it was just kinda his way of little motivational talk. That was that was just kind of how he rolls, right? It actually wasn't how he rolls. But he was trying. We go back out there and evidently one of the fellow offensive lineman. Did not take too kindly to it. The next thing we know. The quarterback. I don't know if the guy did on purpose or not. But the quarterback got hit so hard that he was laying on the ground with his eyes shut on the fifty yard line for an eighty thousand people asleep like a baby and the linemen that didn't take too kindly to the quarterback giving us some. Giving us some words of encouragement on the sideline. Was standing over the quarterback saying, that's what you get. That's what you get. Maybe. Now, you'll shut up leap up. So it was our own offense of linemen screaming over our own concussed quarterback yelling at him. That's what you get. Maybe. Now, you'll shut the bleep up, and I remember the defensive lineman via the team looking at me like what is going on? And I just kind of shrug my shoulders. Like, yeah. I don't know. And that was that was that that was pretty crazy. I also one time soul on a different team and often to tackle gave up a sack because when the running back came to chip he kind of knocked the offensive tackle off of the guy. He was blocking. It was an accident and the offense to tackle went over to him and knocked him over. Over. Went over to him and nailed them enough to running back over my high school coaches, right? They came and they said they'd never seen that before in their life a teammate run over and knock over the other teammate. But that's what happened. So both those things happen back to back years. Take crazy crazy biz. But those are two of the things that I saw that were pretty crazy play teammate on teammate crimes. I would say Jeff could question.

Dan Patrick Show - Hour 1 - Peter King (01-07-19)

"It's all about me. Dan, Patrick gas. There is more where that came from click back for new episodes all week, log from the Mercedes men K. Here's Dan Patrick great to be back. Great to be back. And I mean that from the bottom of my heart. Good time away refreshed ready to go as we get the stretch drive leading up to the Super Bowl Pebble Beach after that Dan in the damage, Dan Patrick show. Twenty eighteen seem like the year of we would finally be putting that saying defense wins championships to rest, right? Remember when the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Rams played and we went on that's the future of the NFL. And I went really they can do it does everybody is that everybody able to play like Golden State dozen the NBA like, yeah. That's the way it's going to be everybody's going to be doing that team scoring at a record pace. Then all of a sudden things started a slowdown in December. And then January hit wild card weekend. No team scored more than twenty four points. What about those big passing numbers? We saw sees a long gone replaced by the run and defense. I don't know if the trend continues, but it was certainly interesting to see how these teams were winning this past weekend. The next round of the playoffs. You're going to have some great quarterback play. You got Brady Philip rivers, Patrick Mahomes. Andrew luck. Drew Brees, the playoff hero, Nick foles. So is the passing game gonna come back. Or the style of play. We saw during wild card weekend here to stay. If you're a fan of football strategy should be a lot of fun. Even if you don't have the high scoring games that we got used to during the regular season. And there was a number that stood out to me. So the start of the offense is gone wild. At least that's what I thought the regular season was going to be that teams were scoring an average of twenty three points per game this season regular season in the playoffs. The numbers fell to eighteen points per game for the eighteen playing over the weekend. Will that continue? I think you're going to have some offenses act like they did during the regular season. But I've said it before and continue to say it you have to be able to run the ball, and you have to be able to stop somebody. That's going to be somehow some way that will find its way into the equation of who wins the Super Bowl. It does every year time-tested and you can throw the ball. But it'll come down to can you? Play defense. Can you make a big stop? Can you get up third in you know, to buy running the football. It's going to happen. And it'll be happening to these teams even Kansas City. Even the Rams teams that like to throw the football. They're going to be able to they're going to have to be able to play defense. Leo look at the Cowboys. They play defense. They run the football Seattle tried to do that against douse. I've surprised that. Russell Wilson didn't have the ball in his hands. More the Chicago Bears. Tariq Cohen touch the ball four times can have that happen. I didn't think the bears defense was great. I didn't think the clo- Mak had a great game. Nick foles continues to do it to mazing really is. It's amazing. And I had full confidence in him on that lasts drive sitting there with friends LEGO. He'll lead them down the score touch him. This isn't a big deal to him. And I still remember when I was up on the podium with him and he was getting the Super Bowl trophy. And he's there with his daughter, and there wasn't any hoopla Yellen screaming. Nothing. He was just like. Okay. All right. I'm supposed to be up. Here. Got my daughter with me. She got headphone headphones. So I just beat Brady. Yeah. Okay. Got a couple of questions for me. Okay. He's not worried. He wasn't worried at all. And here they go into New Orleans, and I know that in New Orleans favored by nine we're going to go. They they blew them out during the regular season and playoff football is just so different now regular season. It's like, okay, we got this game. And then we got a game after this next weekend. You don't have that in the playoffs. Seven comes down to micromanaging. You know, the ravens the ravens can't win with Lamar Jackson were they can win during the regular season. And then in the postseason, they ran against you know, least tried to San Diego defense that had a great game plan unbelievable game plan, and they held on for your life. I don't know if this is you know, a referendum on Mark Jackson being able to play and be in the future. I. You're asking a lot of a rookie quarterback. And I think that we've gotten program to these rookie quarterback's. You gotta go out there. And you got to throw four thousand yards in twenty five thirty touchdowns. It's not that easy. It really is not that easy and Lamar Jackson. He was good during the regular season. Not great but good and Baltimore played well controlled the clock. But at halftime, paulie. And Seton we're talking about DO put in Joe flacco Joe flacco, I don't think would have beaten the chargers. I don't now would I have put him in to start the second half. The only reason why said yes responding to those guys was during the regular season. I said at some point they'll bring in Joe flacco to win again. And I thought that this was going to be the opportunity there. But if you're going to commit to Lamar Jackson, I can't bring in Joe flacco. Because Joe flacco is gone. I don't know John Harbaugh's back, but you've committed to Lamar Jackson San Diego to great game plan. They tried to limit the number of opportunities. He was going to have running the football. And they did it. It was just a good game plan there. But you know, there's a lot of we love to do this. You're assessing team you're going on new the cold sake. Now there that you can't sit. He doesn't wanna face the colts. I mean, they have to. But that's they they would have preferred facing the Texans. And by the way, we'll get to the Texans in a moment the artist formerly known as the Texans. But the colts what they do how they do it. And you're seeing Andrew luck played a very high level. I think what happens is you've you. We miss out on some of the other good stories with the colts. The defense is very good bear good. And you got running back. Nobody talks about. And you're Russian front and fifty yards against you know, the Texans. And I thought MAC look great in. This is a team that is playing extremely well. And give a whole lot of credit Andrew lucked because who knew what was going to happen. The start of this season if he was going to be able to be anywhere near what he wants was. So there's a lot of things that we decide on during the regular season. We lot of things we decide on after the first playoff game. Now can the colts do this again in Kansas City. Absolutely, absolutely. And wouldn't be surprised. Somebody gets shocked every time we never fail. Somebody gets shocked and somebody's gonna get shocked probably this weekend. But at some point there will be one of those results where you go. Wow. I didn't see that one coming not surprised at all. I thought all four road teams. We're going to win this weekend. I thought Seattle was going to beat downs. I thought Russell Wilson show had the ball in his hands a lot more. But Zeke Elliott game credit. You know made big plays. We'll talk to Jalen Smith. The Cowboys linebacker a little bit later on. Anthony, Lynn the chargers. Head coach will join us. We'll check in with David Pollock covering the national title game tonight. Peter King from NBC sports. Pete will join us coming up in a little bit. He was there for the ravens chargers game. Clemson Alabama tonight. Get over in any other sport. Don't you want the two best teams to face each other? Right. Okay. It's predictable. Do something about it. All right, either don't watch or maybe take your program down, you know, another notch to division one AA. What do they call him that now FCS or F B S or F something football subdivision called something something? Yes. But. You want that in any other sport you go? Boy, we want the two best teams to face off. Why is it in college? Football you go. I'm not interested as seen this before you got more pros potential pros playing tonight than any other game that you would have this year. You got two great coaches. You got a coach who's going for history here. And I don't know. I get the where we're kind of apathy attic when it comes to this. But my point is, you know, if you don't want to watch don't watch there's nothing I can do to dress it up saying, you know, Lawrence is going to be the number one overall pick and a couple of years you've got great defensive lineman their strategy here. Two coaches going against each other a coach at Clemson who may eventually take over for saving at Alabama. I mean, there's a lot of storylines here. If you if you're interested in my problem is the timing this. I'm football doubt over the weekend. I mean, that's that's a lot of football. That's a hard one to go. Hey, hon. Another game coming up tonight. What Monday who's playing on Monday? Well, it's the national title game. Wait, I thought you said North Dakota state was the national title game. Well that was four different title FCS F. What what did you say to me? There's a lot of hours of football, sixteen hours. And I'm not in counting pre-game, you know. I'm like, I didn't even do that is like a no not watching pre-game now, but watch a lot of football. Plus when you're on vacation kind of hard to get wait. You're on vacation. I know it's still my job though. Thank god. My son was there because he'll be like we watching the game like. Yeah.

Sean goes, hey, Dan. I did a story on him at the mothership when he was in college at BYU, he was in Australia, and he was going door to door. He was proselytizing. He's a Mormon.

Yeah. Here's another thing. All right. I know people get invested in their team, and it's emotional and you care, but when there's death threats, and you say stupid things to people athletes Cody parkey had a field goal. That was tipped and nobody wants to like allow that to be the story to be the narrative here it's easier to say, well, he missed it. Again. He hit the post. Okay. The ball was grazed by defensive player and give parkey credit though, he hung in there. And I've been there in some of the most emotional situations ever. Okay. When Bill Buckner had the ball go through his legs. He sat there and answered every question. I was right there. Mitch Williams when he gave up the World Series winning home run to Joe Carter answered every question sat there. Okay. Those are a whole lot bigger than a first round playoff game. Here's Cody parkey. The bears kicker. Facing the media last night. I feel terrible. What the team down? That's all me. So I have to own it out to be a man. And you know, it's unfortunately, unfortunately, that's the way it and went the today. Consoled you hoping that situation that you're just no, of course. I mean, that's the worst one of the worst feelings in oil to to let your team. So I feel terrible. You know, a continue to put things in perspective continue just put my best foot forward. And and just sleep sleep at night, knowing that I did everything about power this week to go and make that kick and for whatever reason at the crossbar and the upright, and I still can still couldn't do it. Okay. He didn't give up the touchdown golden take Diddy. See the one that couldn't put pressure on Nick foles all game. All right. I mean was he blocking the guy who tipped the kick? So put it in perspective here. I know that we wanted to just put all the blame. It's easier to put the blame on him. He hit the post how many times during the regular season. He did. Absolutely. But but this is a team that Robbie gold used to be great pro bowler, team-leading go you bring him in and parking had made three. Okay. Can I can I complain about the red zone offense. They're clo MAC didn't have much of a game last night, golden Tate. You'll out him to score the touchdown fourth down. But he wants to pile on this kid. There's other people there should be other people that we're talking about. But this is easy. All you hit the post and then NBC set it up nicely Allen, Chris set it up nicely. This is what he had done. This is what he did. And you know, give credit to the eagles. Peterson calls the time out. You know, they try to ice him a little bit. He had made it. And then this one comes back. But you know, there's a few things that should be pointed out give him credit. He stood in there. And he answered those questions any didn't make excuses, and he could have but other people net Chicago Bears team, they deserve some blame to. And that ball got tipped to what degree how it affected it. I don't know. But it did get tipped and Cody parkey is not the reason why the bears did not advance. All right. We'll get to your phone calls. Eight seven seven three DP show, Email address teepee, Dan, Patrick dot com. Twitter handle at teepee show as we make way for. For Peter King. You can check out peace NFL column. Football morning in America. Every Monday exclusively on NBC sports dot com. Pete in attendance for the chargers. Ravens yesterday. Pete. Good morning. How are you? Dan. How are you doing today? I'm a little fired up over a couple of things, you know, the Cody parkey thing, and you know, that we love to blame. And it's it's an easy story. Right. And you know, the bears didn't lose because of him. And I think that sometimes we're unfair. When it comes down to these one time only situations, and you know, so I felt bad for him. So I I think the one thing an an look I'm part of the media madness. I named him go to the week. You ought to be able to make a forty three yard field goal like at that. But I also think that you know, I think philosophically much much much bigger picture. Why do we watch sports K wh-? We want sports because there's a chance that you could win. There's a chance you could lose, you know, nothing other than the old extra point really is is just about automatic. And you know, you don't. Watch sports because you know, what's going to happen. You watch sports because you don't know what's going to happen. And so you know, if guy misses a forty three yard field goal. Yeah. He probably should've made the field goal, but the bottom line, and this is that it is a sports event, you're witnessing this you you should be able to have the maturity to look at it and be really really angry and not go crucify this kid for for for missing a kick. And so look, I I mean, you know, he deserves blame, you know, either for not getting a kick high enough or or whatever. But let's let's all simmer down a little bit about about neyland the guy to the cross for crying out loud. You were in attendance for the chargers ravens. What did you make of that game from start to finish? You know, I thought one of the best playoff coaching jobs. I've seen as break us Bradley that offensive coordinator of the chargers who went into Anthony Lynn at the beginning of last week, the head coach of the chargers and said look coach, I I we we we didn't do a great job on him last time. Nobody's been doing a great job playing them conventionally. So you know, the chargers who already had some injuries at at at the linebacker position. Gus Bradley, basically said I wanna play seven linebackers. I want our safeties to drop down and play linebackers and we're gonna play all of our corners in the game. And Dan one of the funny things is at the end of every game. You get this thing from the PR staff of whatever game you're at. It's called the official NFL play by play. And I looked at it in the first play of the game for San Diego. Chargers. All the guys on their DB's four defensive linemen. It's the craziest thing I've ever seen. And and so that was a really smart thing to do. Because from the first snap of the game. When Derwin James was there spying? Lamar Jackson and nailing them for one yard loss. You just sorta knew that this was going to be a different game. Now, I think they played extremely well on defense and the the ravens almost came back. But it never really felt like they were gonna come back. You know and Lamar Jackson's got a long way to go in the passing game to make people fear him throwing the ball. And that's what he's gonna have to work on this off season. Would you put in flacco at any point yesterday? I probably would have late in the third quarter y-, you know, you could see that that there was no question that horrible. Was sort of you know, on the edge of a sword there. But you know, I think that that Harbaugh basically said, okay, look, you know, flacco hasn't played in two months. He's not gonna be able to move around will against this this voracious defense. So I think his thought was these guys are killing Lamar Jackson there. They stack them seven times as it turns out and flacco I think he thought was going to be too much of a sitting. Flacco is not back next year is John Harbaugh back in old Moore. My gut feeling is. Yes. But I don't think anybody knows that right Now, Dan because it's going to be a very interesting question when Steve shoddy realized that John Harbaugh, and and might he he very well might sign a contract. But I think this Pete Carroll contract in is going to have some bearing. I think the pe- karaoke contract is gonna have some bearing on on what happens to her the rumor eleven million dollar a year contract. Now, there are eight coaches in the league, including harbor will make at least eight million dollars between eight and whatever Belichick makes twelve fifteen hundred even know what it is. You know, like players, contracts coaches contracts around publicized. So I think that Harbaugh rightfully so with look at Pete Carroll's deal and said, hey, I've been here longer. I one more. We've each one a super. Bowl. We better be talking. And again, I have not talked to John Harba this. I'm just trying to read into who harbor is he's a tremendously competitive person. And I think he would look at at at that contract and say, you know, let's start at eleven million for me too. Talking to Peter King. You can read his column every Monday, it's football morning in America. You can see that exclusively on NBC sports dot com. Couple of the things here with the eagles advancing in Nick foles, Nick foles, and how available is Nick foles going to be or how costly is he going to be for a team. That is a fantastic question. And then I wrote this this morning. Somebody wrote me a letter. I I answer Email in my column every week and somebody wrote to me and said what basically what's the end game with foale's. Can he win enough to win this job? And I I said look I talked to somebody last week was very very close to this situation. And it was said that that he thinks that the people in thority the eagles should go to Nick foles and ask him this question. You know, you you you're not like every other quarterback it you've seen. What happens when you have a chance to go to a bad team? Because obviously he knows what happens when he went to the Rams, and they were bad. It was a nightmare almost quit football. So I I wonder whether the eagles will attempt at least for one more year to make him. Mario no Rivera who the era make him the highest paid relief pitcher in football. And again, he's got an option next year team option for twenty point six million. They could keep them if they wanted to. But I think the understanding is I've always thought that if Nick foles really wanted to go that they probably wouldn't stand in his way. But who knows they may decide that we've got some value here that we'd like to trade, I think it's very much up in the air. And I think the eagles are very glad they don't have to decide this until after the season. And you have this reversed where you have your backup making a whole lot more than your starter. Because Wednesday believe is going to make seven hundred thousand next year. So normally it's the other way around and you have that luxury. But I'm wondering Nick foles is in, you know, improving his trade value with every performance in feels like if you're Jacksonville or some, you know, some other team you might be going you don't want. Maybe maybe that's our bridge quarterback for the next. Couple years we can bring him in. So I'm kind of curious is being I'll tell you this. Jacksonville's the perfect team. Absolutely perfect team for Nick foles, if he were to actually move on because they have a ready made defense they sort of had a blip on their screen this year. If I were the Jaguars, I would be putting all my eggs in Nick foles basket and not maybe not just as a bridge quarterback guys just going to be thirty years old next year. And and again, you you'll see what happens maybe it'll turn out that he should be a backup quarterback, or or you know, may maybe maybe it'll turn out that you know, that if somebody shows so much faith in him that he that he won't be what he was in Philadelphia that it was just magic in Philadelphia. The support system in Doug Peterson and last year Frank, right? So we'll see. But of all the teams that I've thought of the best overall is Jacksonville check or for him. If I. I would have told you in September the colts are going to be a real tough out in the postseason. But would you say you would have been crazy? I thought the Indianapolis Colts were definitely definitely on the right path. I named Chris Ballard is my -secutive of the year this year his draft was unbelievably good. He might have gotten the defensive rookie of the year in the second round from South Carolina state. He stepped in led the league and tackles as a rookie. I talked to Terry Leonard a couple of weeks ago. And he said, hey, I thought I this is just going to be a learning year for me, you know, and they put him in the games, and he just they never took him out. And then you know, taking offense lineman twice in the first two rounds. I, you know, Ballard new at this team needed it needed a suit of armor to be built around Andrew luck. And it needed some defensive playmakers. That's what that's what they've got. Then I I, but I. Have to tell you. I'm totally blown away by very quick transformation. You know, it's why it's why there's so much hope every year. The Indianapolis Colts the perfect example of why every July, you know, it starts to get late July early. August you start to look at your team. Hey, maybe we got a chance this year who in the world thought the colts would be on ten ten in one run right now. I certainly didn't what do you make of the Cowboys in that performance against Seattle. I think that that was the perfect game for them, you know, a month or so ago. Jerry Jones starts talking about how deck needs to run more. Yeah. Back to have -solutely perfect times to take off with the ball any such. You know, what he is? He's not the best runner of the quarterbacks in football by any means. But he is one of the smartest runners that you'll see because he knows exactly when to go and win to stay. And I just I've got great. Admiration for what he did to me. I wrote this in my column Ezekiel Elliott is now convinced me that he could play in any era of football. He's he's such a smart football player in in my opinion, knowing when to stay in Brown's no one went to go for more yards. You know, went to you know, when when when to say die, and I do I really think that he's the kind of fast physical back that, you know, again, I I, and this is a this is a difficult thing for me to say because I think Jim Brown's the best running back of all time. He's got a lot of traits of Jim Brown, in my opinion as far as being physical but being fast at the same time. I I just I really love him as a football player. And I think they were that was a really good match for them against Seattle because Seattle's defense is good. But it's not it's it isn't great and. And I think that was a good team for them to play in the first playoff game scoring was down. Pete is that just an aberration? Or do you think that's what we're going to be seeing here after the referendum on the future of football after the chiefs and Rams, and that was everybody had to find their Sean McVeigh feels like we're back to what we are normally back to at this time of the year, and that's running the football and playing defense. Well, it, you know, the the is I wrote this morning teams average twenty three point five points a game during the regular season this year, and it was down eighteen point one in the first round of the playoffs. And look, Dan, it's four games. So I can't I can't tell you what's going to happen. But you know, some pretty potentially explosive teams are playing this week. Everybody discounts. The patriots you're fourth in the NFL and scoring this year. Again, they were well over four hundred points. So you know, the chargers can score. You know in the saints, obviously, even though they had a slump at the end of the season. They're they're good scoring team. So the Rams obviously, I think I think it's more of a blip. But I do think except for the ravens y-, you know, they they the really excellent all around defensive teams show up, you know, at this at this time of year. And I mean, except for the ravens ravens are one of those. But they lost. I think because they just couldn't get anything going on offense. Good stuff is always Pete. And have a great week. Thanks for talking and talk to you soon. Hey, my pleasure. Dan, have a great one. That's Peter King NFL column. Football morning in America every Monday exclusively on NBC, sports dot com.

Cowboys are eagles. We have a right away winner JR. Care guests who? Colt chargers. One colts to nobody has eagles and cow. Okay. Accent NFC is going to be tough to to for while third time in the last six seasons. Both numbers six seeds one on wild card weekend only to number six seeds have ever gone on to reach the Super Bowl. And they both won the Super Bowl the Steelers in oh five and the Packers in two thousand ten I so that's our poll question. I guess we're going to have to change that since we have a runaway winner here. Yeah. I the other option is of the four losers. Who would you buy stock in for the future? So you got the bears. You have the the Seahawks then the ravens and the Texans the Texans and stop. In. To stop is a franchise. You want us to buy into you. You it. It's just Bill O'Brien win a home playoff game. You know, they he's beaten one team. And it was Connor cook. In the raiders is who he's defeated in the playoffs. I mean, you have talent there you do. Come on. You're at home. Get seven points. You know, the colts are good that good. If I was going to invest in a teams future. Let me see not Seattle up bears. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And I saw some throws from Trubisky last night. But you gotta score score touchdowns. It's like when the chargers started out with four field goals. I go blast gonna come back and haunt you not realizing that they were gonna shut down Baltimore's offense for almost ninety percent of the game. But that's that's when you get feel. It's like the chargers against the patriots. You better score touchdowns in when you get in the red zone. You're not gonna win a field goal game. Not in New England. Not in that weather. You just not. You gotta score. You gotta have red zone touchdowns here. And you know, I thought the bears had opportunities there and didn't take advantage of them and came back to haunt them. Yeah. Peng Trubisky though, it's one of those guys. He never has to good passes in a row. It's really good passing that past really. And and you sit there as a bears fan. From play to plague on this guy. Oh, he's awesome. And you know, even when he couldn't run in the second half yesterday. Is it feels like he's almost there and bears fans are on the precipice of saying this guys are future. But it's still you're like dipping your toe in the water but going back to the Texans. Because if I said, this is going to be your record this year, you go we're gonna have this great bounceback here. Just Shawn Watson JJ watt slow start. And I'd feel terrible Texans fan be like this. This wasn't a good year because you got to the finish line. And did the same thing that you normally do and that's why they put you at four o'clock on Saturday in if they had a game at one o'clock, I would've put him at one o'clock on Saturday. Yeah. You don't sack luck once clowney what not want? I don't know. Why I'm so invested in the Texans because I I wasn't invested in the Texans because they're the Texans and Bill O'Brien is their coach. Yeah. The home playoff game. Must not see TV. I think we need to come up with. There's always must see TV the Texas or must not see TV. You got Hopkins in there. You got watching in there.

Mason and Ireland %5Bhr 2%5D

"I e SPN LA in Ireland sal- new year, happy hour happy. Where did you think of the new slogan atop our every hour? Happy hour every hour is going to be happy hour from about three to four in here me three to four is going to be happy. Drew the extra or today? Real happy the old noon to three Mason Ireland show is going noon to four today. They Salat Greg. This is exactly what you wanted. When you came back wanted an extra hour because you haven't been able to talk little or no notice I'll go with the full. All right. So I guess I I asked that question. What? If the Lakers had no liberal in a world without LeBron in a world where you've got that same young core. Brandon Ingram cow coups, mud, Josh heart. You've got those same guys Lonzo. How good with this Lakers team be right around eight between as you say they would be the between eight and ten right around there. Look how jumped up our bunched up at his back there. So right around there. I mean, look we had a good stretch against some bad teams. We've had a rough stretch the teams right where John island actually said they would be. I don't think it's that crazy to expect them to lose with those three guys out. And I don't think it's nuts to think Lonzo is not going to be the most aggressive score in the league. Like that just sort of goes without saying so in those I'm all for holding players accountable, and I'm all for criticism, but the criticism has to fit the the piece of art you're talking about like, if I show you a painting, and you say, well, I don't think it sculpted that. Well, I'm gonna go wait. What what are you looking at man statue or painting? So Lonzo is who he is. He was that in college. He was that in chino. He is that now and suddenly say, hey, man, we need. You to drop twenty. That's just not that's not going to happen on a consistent basis. That's definitely not his game. Here's what Luke said after last after yesterday's loss to the timber wolves try, but they're young let me say he's talking about specifically Brandon Ingram and Lonzo ball try. But they're young. You know, at some point we just, you know, we need more passion, we need more fight. And that's not. That's not scoring more. That's, you know, more diving for loose balls. Yet, you know, communicating loudly grabbing grant, and has some really nice crack back rebounds tonight that we can get out run need that all the time from so just. You know, not just, but it's until we get healthy. Again. You know, you gotta you gotta play in his league some passive fire to win. It's hard to win in this when you are healthy. So you gotta give double that effort when when is down, and it definitely wasn't there yesterday. There was not a lot of fight. There wasn't a lot of passion. He didn't see guys getting on the floor after a after a loose ball. You didn't see you didn't see any of those hustle stats that you would normally expect to see from young team that is scrapping and trying to keep the ball in the air. While you're great stars is injured who we've seen what Brandon Ingram does. When he tries to play with more passion, it has to be a force thing. And he got in a fight. Like that was he showed his new teammate that he wasn't somebody that was going to get pushed around, but it doesn't translate to play because it's out of character. He has to physically grow and get bigger to where those bumps feel different. And then. Confidence builds. But right now, he's still a young slender dude plan against grown men, and he's not going to get angry and hall cout like that just the real world doesn't work like that these moments and everybody's gonna go. Well, if he's not that guy get rid of them. I you need to you need to preach patients because these are the moments that help shape and define not just athletes, but men and women everywhere these moments where everybody's questioning what kind of person you are. And are you mentally tough enough? Whether you're a basketball player, you're on the radio your banker, you work at price club, and people are going to check your mental toughness all the time. Whether it's a boss, a co worker, a critic on Twitter or whoever it is. And those are the moments that helped shape and build you. He's had one of those moments where he got in a fight and the right failure. Right. Then that's word is. Okay. People get so scared of it that word is fine. You don't need to worry about getting humiliated on social media because you failed. So that's good. We acknowledged. That that was a mistake and failure. And he hasn't done that sense. But when you say passion, and the guy hasn't been able to show it in any way, but one form so far you might be asking for something that that young man's not ready for yet. And it may simply not be within him. But he's too young to just write him off. You're listening to Caspian Los Angeles. Yeah. You know, part of it is I guess he's not developing at the rate that I expected him to develop. I mean, he is not into have actually regressed. He he is not shown any growth from last year. If anything he's. On par with last year. Okay. But I have not seen mean, I'm I'm on record saying for the last couple of years. I think ultimately Brandon Ingram becomes an all star. I think I was way over my skis. When I said now, it's more Brandon Ingram becomes part of a three team trade. I would. Is. And by the way, I don't think that's necessarily of of stupid suggestion anymore. This. I think it I think at this point. I mean, is is Brandon Ingram a guy that you see see a guy that you look at it as a trade piece, or is he guy you look at us a foundational piece where you like you like looking at sports teams with as assets, right, right talent. They have is asset. So all of them are assets. And then you claim sort of the ones that are your building blocks your foundation that you're going to build on any draft pick that they've made I love Josh heart. I think he's more than most people think he is. I think he could become like a tougher Bruce Bowen, but everybody should be on the trading block. If you can improve the team, right? When Magic Johnson came his sole function wasn't to make them relevant. They're already relevant people try to go while stars can play anywhere now in the become huge stars Jaanus is not a huge star. Okay. He is in the NBA. World. But he's not the star. He could be because he plays in Milwaukee. I'm not sure that by the way, his digital footprint is not but air it would be if he was in New York. I watched a twenty minute profile, sixty minutes about Yoenis you. Did you did? But not not everyone did like he's not the household name. He's better than guys getting more more fame than him. He's better than guys getting more fame than him. He's a jumper way. You're saying being a star is just about your address. No, I'm not saying that it's about your personality if LeBron if Janas was in Los Angeles, he'd be a mega mega Stowe becoming to start. Just a one tool thing like you have to have the personality to do it. But if you don't have the personality and you're in the right location. You can still become a bigger star than those with bigger personalities in smaller spaces where they can't be because Jaanus is arguably right now the most valuable player in the National Basketball Association. He's probably he's certainly top three guy. This may. I wouldn't argue that at all. So if he put up an MVP year in Los Angeles, he would be a megastar you're saying just as address ligaments, look at it like YouTube there, you'll see channels that have thirty million subscriber, right? And the content is unwatchable like there's there's no talent there. But they were in the right space, it clicked with the right group and that built and you'll see other people who have incredible content, and they have two hundred us, right? Two hundred us because it's that content is not in the right space, or they didn't tag it properly or they don't have the right man tags connected to it or they're not following the YouTube algorithms, and that's what getting seen and exposure. Does. It just gets more eyeballs on you. Now, you have to prove it, right? You have to prove it like JR Smith was a star when he was in New York not anymore. You know what? I mean, he was talked about all the time on ESPN in New York not anymore. So, you know, these things do matter, and it's not as much as it was. But the digital footprint, isn't this all? Powerful thing. You still need household is to see you there. Still a grass roots that needs to develop and you do that through stronger exposure, by the way, the LeBron James is expected to be reevaluated on Friday, if he were to play Friday night who is Friday is I know Utah's if Friday Utah. Wednesday's who's Wednesday. When's day on Wednesday was Utah? Maybe how come on Detroit Detroit, Detroit, then Utah? So that would be the Friday game at Utah. If he were to play that would mean, he has missed ten games so far the Lakers lost five out of six without him. I wouldn't review them in a cold weather city. I just wouldn't debut 'em. What Sunday against the Cavs at Staples Center in LA, where it's warm where it's warm your body start playing indoors, which matter if it's cold weather's warm weather, say the NFL Jared Goff old thing you get older. Yeah. And you get out of bed or warm room. Yeah. Your body hurts if it's cold outside it just does it's called arthritis starts to get us. All don't act like you don't feel it because I feel I do not feel it. Then you're superman, but other people do. Yeah. And cold cities. It's a little harder to get up. It takes longer for your body to warm up which already takes longer to warm up because you're getting older, I'm telling you, man, okay, boards and cold weather, cold weather, cities when you start to get older our. So we know D N P C D, right, right? This is this would be a D N P C W. Yes. Cold weather, did not that. I agree. As a matter of fact, you should pull what do you think of that the cold weather to quote, him other cities? Yeah. I know he should only play in warm weather. Now on you cannot go play any other city that has basketball shouldn't even be allowed to have it. Right. Then California have thirteen teen. Yes. We would you would would you have the walnut wizards Washington wizard shout out to walnut. You know? He never has to step outside the dillmore Cavaliers John Ireland could call Cavs. Hey, by the way, tonight national championship game is in Palo Alto. Which is great because you've got Alabama and Clemson both from the south going all the way up to threat would northern California. It's perfect which is a beautiful stadium by the the Palo Alto. Pacer? Have you ever been stadium? What do they call Levi's stadium? Right. Yes. That was wrestlemainia was there like four or five years ago actually winter God, it's a beautiful stadium. It really is. Put a hip toss on triple h what back when Rhonda. Oh, no, Ronda, Rousey, right wrestlemainia, first time, she ever did like a WW and she went with Iraq. And they actually got in the ring and did a hip toss on. Eight nice crowd when they fill up Levi stadium for this sold at out sold it out niner's game was even played there. Yeah. It's a beautiful. You know, the great thing about it is no matter where you are in that stadium. You have complete five bars WI fi access on your phone. I would no I was on the field. Yeah. You are on the field, of course for my perfect on there. But like if you go to a Rams game go to a Lakers game. I've never been to the stubhub center. So I'm not sure and they changed the name of the stubhub center. Again, what is it? Now, it's like the TicketMaster arena or the the home banking of America sociation or something like that. They gave it a new name by their charges. Though, you go there for a soccer game soccer absolutely rodeo there. Check out the rodeo, Freddie, doesn't hear me. It is the dignity health sports park. Name. Hello. The charge now playing the San Diego. Chargers are now playing at dignity dignity health, hell, part, you know, that Michael. SP? Spe- getting hard to Brian first slogan. Health is a good thing. We all want dignity, but that is the least catchy name. I would argue in all of professional sport. What is what is called Siham? Now, the calcium changed. Also, isn't it? Not yet bad as that. It's going to it's going to be United Airlines field at the Los Angeles memorial. Grants. It it could be it could be the O surprise Coliseum and doing better than the dignity health teriyaki bowl, or whatever they by the way and the chargers play their when I think chargers, I think dignity health. Holes because down in San Diego. It was very healthy to go to very healthy, very healthy. Hey, by the way, the missed field goal in the bears game. I happened to catch this this morning over there on the get up show was which I watch every morning is incredible. The double. I was I was like no oh God. Winning after the first like oh watch. It still went through and hit the other had the crossbar. So here's the eagles Spanish language call. This is going to be money of the missed field goal. Again. The eagle Spanish language. I see. Thank you. There. You have got to play that for Ireland. Yeah. We'd love that. I'm not sure why. But Spanish-language announcers get to be total and complete homers, and nobody complaints. But if you're an English language announcer, and you're a Homer, everybody bitches about you because the Spanish language, call is thousand times better. It's fun and exciting there homers. Good like, those guys are homers Luddite fine kit made that sound and ridiculed by their own family from birth. So they don't care what social media says in white households. Don't say that to your brother. Jimmy. Oh, don't be mean. Little Tommy, hey, that hurts his feelings Jackson like that's why white families are afraid to like be homers because they don't want get insulted on social media Spanish people like whatever, bro. I heard it. All ready. They don't care there. You have. All right coming back next to the very latest on cliff Kingsbury. We've got an update on that next. Plus we'll dig in a little bit to the Rams and Cowboys Saturday night the. Night game at the Coliseum on Saturday, by the way. Apparently, we played an incorrect. Call we will try to figure that out next Mason, Ireland ESPN LA. All right. So first of all, I knew there was something. Not quite right. I just got back from El Salvador, and I said. I don't know. I j LA its name was being yelled repeatedly. And then the call I heard this morning on Ellen by the way, somebody said I stole this from the morning show as everybody knows I still thinks from get up. I don't steal things from the morning show. So that's where it stolen from fairly morning show play video games. So this is the Spanish language call you need. No, send your of the misses. The Cody parkey field goal at the end of that bears. Igal s- game. Cody parkey wanting out of this. That's limited. No. Anyway. With the brakes true. With a shoe goes. Call that is Conan thing. Knows in your no saying their song. I know gave it to him. He gave it to. How do you go on with life? If you're Cody parkey that's going to be tough, man. There's another clip that you can't play because the guy dropped so many F bombs. But there was a dude is just called f Cody. Oh, really there's a video going around on social media. You can't play a single second of it. So don't even try till the break. But if the rest, you wanna know how mid on too many steroids feel about Cody perky, you can go and watch that. That's gotta be worse than Gary Anderson with the with the Vikings and ninety eight right? Yeah. Who really want? Gary Austin didn't have to deal with social media talk. Norwood was the worst one right? And again, not with social media. That's Kate kit deal with that for a little bit on local news, national news. This guy has to deal with it on. So he's going to become a gif. He's going to become a mean, that's a different level of humiliation in shame. Sure. Somebody's already put the crying Jordan on. His face. I thought this was kind of cool. There were a number of NBA players who came out in support of Cody Haughey. Did you see this? Parkey Dwayne Wade. Most of you have no idea how hard this is to do Cody parkey way to face the media like a true professional. I'm fan the Mamba we've all been here, Cody, but if you wanna win back to city, you gotta get back in the lab and have a stork season next year to bury this one NFL. Let him I'm happy for my eagles nation. But as a fellow pro athlete, you gotta grind harder and double down hashtag. No excuses. Judge. I don't even know what that means judge. Sure judge shit. Yeah. Famous crease Greek quote, ever judges. Can I pull you real fast Mason because you you like to get up? Right. I love the get up. Okay. So Rex Ryan, by the way, like putting the I like putting a definite forever for the get up get up. What's funny? You call it the get up now. People actually call it are saying like on the getup. Yeah. I think they should change the name to the Guetta. It's just get up people put it all the time as the get up. I don't know about you. Or what it's because the movement that up I've found there's a there's a clip of Rex Ryan on on the get up talking about how talking about the misfield goal, and he rips in to Cody parkey, I'm gonna play for my computer. So might not sound. That's all right. Rex is a head coach. Let's start with the kick. Let's start with that final players on. It's my thoughts. Are you got one job to do? I mean it comes down to one play. And every coaches who always be like, well, it's not just one. Yes. It is a job. Do you that kicks in the fact, she didn't like I don't feel sorry for a lot of feel sorry for that kid really feel sorry for this team mates and everybody else the fan base and everybody else you let down I'm sure that's this doesn't prepare. They don't do meetings. They don't do that. You make a kick in that situation. You you've got to sit back. That's what your professional. It's like a golfer missing a four foot putt. Yup. If you're a pro you make it, and that's what this kid's got to do. I don't feel sorry for maybe. That's the evidence. His single. All off the yo. It's not even ice cold. It's so ignorant and. Oh a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. Wait a minute feel bad for his team. He feel bad for him. So if Tiger Woods misses the putt than feel bad for his kids. Don't feel bad for the wait a minute. No tiger. Tiger Woods misses. A putt at on him. You're so you feel bad for him right versus this is a field goal tying feel people feel bad. I feel bad for bears fans, I feel bad for the he'll bad for Mitch Trubisky who and you don't feel bad for the rally. Got I feel bad for Torri Cohen who had a great kickoff return and got them great field position famous people, whether they're athletes our musicians like they could dehumanize to the point where they're like there's no feelings for them like their stock to two like why old game? And then this philosophy comes in where it's like to hell with it was like, your are you serious? They did this to your guy said he hoped he got cancer. And I mean, that's that's different from. I don't feel sorry for him that. Wow. I feel sorry for the dude who loses the fight as much as I like as much as I wanted to know this guy hit crossbars like seven times nine times x. Number. But yeah, there's not gonna be any second chance. It's kind of on the bears because the bears went into the playoffs with a guy who had missed eight field goals this year. So if you got a guy who missed eight field goals this year. I feel for the dude Cyrus I'm in. I'm with Rex you'll so is I'm with Rasa. Would you play to win the game? What he's people his name. Data screen known. Not Dennis Green, the other Herm Edwards Edward Sam. That's right. Was on hard knocks when he coached the chiefs. They were talking about final cuts, and they brought up kickers any literally looks at his assistant because it's the kicker like, they don't know. That's true. Don't care. No. He's right. That's NFL. People feel about one job that level of passion. About a kicker from X? Ryan just makes me flush that whole statement member never pet. Remember never pet. Pin meaning called Mike van jet. An idiot kicker. So I mean, it's the kicker's fault is all right. He was a broken quarterback sick and Super Bowl balances out that loss is absolutely on Cody park. I agree. I just got. All right. It's twenty three thirty which means. You gotta be seven thirty Mason Ireland ESPN LA, what is going on, Freddie, prince junior for by the way, that's one of the most exciting things about tonight's college. Football national championship game. Halftime hamilton. What my guys imagine dragging plan? Halftime college football national champion, my kids like them a lot, man. I love magic dragon too much pop music. I'm not a big pop music sort of bridge. They get one foot in pop and one foot in rock the kind of split the split the middle. Still have any snoop back there. This was in every college football for the entire. The was tonight. Walk. You have everyone. I love we've already accrued always got the entire real danger. You don't even have to watch tonight. Now, you don't have any grew or gang Starr wreck everything we came in with meek mill. Are you kidding me? That's new stuff. Says suspicious character strapped with the sound for Reynolds. Watch. Imagine got big L. There's your half hunt show. No now, you do twice J doubled up on it. All right. So I was gonna say down in El Salvador was on vacation in El Salvador retreat, and I was yoga health retreat. Yes. Correct. And I was yes, healthy, I got very healthy three hours a day. I meant I meant healthy. Yeah. Three hours of yoga dignity and health like the arena. So it's all psyched to go surfin. Right. I've never tried surfing before. I'm like, yeah. I'm the fifty three you never tried surfing. I grew up in Toledo, Ohio. You. Yeah. I've always said like neurosis about sharks. Okay. I've always been like there is a shark certainly waiting for me out. Okay. So I've gotten over that fear the last couple years. So I'm like, all right. So it's fischel. I'm going to go surfing. So I I don't go out. But other people go out and they get stung by stingrays. And did you not go out specifically because you were scared to go out or something else happen? I did not go out because people were getting stung by stingrays. Okay. There were stingrays apparently in this particular area the beach. It was great surfing. But there were stingrays out there. And there was no frigging way. I was going to go out on my vacation gets stung by a Stingray. Okay. And I think their stings are fairly significant. Right. I've never been stung by one. They have their tail, but I don't know if it's considered a sting think jellyfish sting think you can get caught by the barb on a Stingray. That's what you do you get caught by the bar. Have you ever been stung by a jellyfish never been stung by jellyfish Puerto Rico, got stung by when I was twelve and my Poppel his name was Wilson Ramirez. He told me to an Cup and poured it on my arm, and it worked that is exactly what people says that I got stung by a blue. In Hawaii where you'll be bro. Still it's still hurts the official treatment for most ocean stings of any kind really of anything anything is better than windex. Yeah. No. I got I got scraped up on. What are they called urchins? Do not have the sea shoes on. I did not why got scrape I got scratched up. I climbed up on a dock in Greece and got scraped didn't finish the surfing story. Did you all ended up not going? Aw maze, getting stung by sting range. They weren't there. Every day. You could served at different braille. I was told that this particular part of the beach. There are a lot of stingrays. You couldn't there's other doing it. Not doing it man break. There was one great break. Probably the best in all of Salvatore instigate surfing probably coral, which means you get the same wave every time here. It's a sandbar different. Didn't do it. Did you hurt yourself at all normally on vacation you hurt yourself in some way? I took one really good fall. What? Nightime? It was nighttime post dancing. There were a lot of steps. It was one hundred twelve steps up to my room. I repent day up and down up and down maybe five six times. And I did there was a good tumble about three. I'm one night. All the way down not all the way. Yes. Exactly. I did not hit every step on the way down lost in New York. But the injuries were considered minor good. They're always minor. You always bounce bounce bounce do do car or on a basketball. So if you are if you're looking for this update on cliff Kingsbury, it's starting to sort itself out a little bit more. So if you're not following this story over the weekend came out that multiple NFL team specifically the cardinals and the jets both interested in USC offense coordinator has been there. Ten minutes, cliff Kingsbury and initially Lynn Swann said. Nope, we're not going to grant permission to those teams. No better job for you. Now cliff had an option at that point cliff could have paid his own buyout. In order to be free to take a job either a head coaching job or coordinator job in the NFL. Now, what appears to be happening is that Kingsbury has been released by Lynn Swann to speak with NFL teams about head coaching jobs. So in other words, yes, Clint we grant the cardinals permission to speak to cliff Kingsbury about the head coaching job same with the jets, but we're not releasing him to be an offensive coordinator in the NFL. That's what he was going to do for us in those opportunities were out there form Winnie actually signed. So it's a rep. So it seems like a rap as long as you rather one OC job in the NFL head coach. Mall. Trying to be a head coach he's out. No, no, no, no. They're not granting him permission to talk to teams about offense coordinator district's who would want to have that conversation. If people are willing to have a head coach conversation. That's so when I'm on what I'm assuming. No, no what I'm assuming happens is cardinals go somewhere else for a head. Coach jets go somewhere else for a head coach Kingsbury offensive coordinator for USC. Here's why I think he's going to be a jet. The jets are all about media moments because they never have a good season. They're about making hot splashy one. Hold that hold that thought. Yeah. We'll do that next base in Ireland ESPN LA. Hey, what's going on Mason, Ireland, ESPN LA, Freddie, prince junior in for John? You're just talking about how you think cliff Kingsbury is gonna wind up head coach of the jets, y okay, the jets and their ownership group seemed to make better media decisions then football decisions, and let me let me sort of classify when I say media decisions they try to win off seasons. They try to get hot names. They try to do things that will keep that New York media off their back because the New York media's brutal. They've sort of always been susceptible to that under the the Woody Johnson ownership. Right. And that's the kind of move that makes perfect sense for them to make everybody loves cliff Kingsbury. Let's get him. We won't get criticized. Don't. Think billionaires or above not like criticism there plenty that don't enjoy hearing that stuff about him. There's some that don't care, right. Like, Vince, you say, whatever you want, whatever. But he's he's a alpha personality not every billionaires in alpha. Like, there's a lot of beta personalities out there that like everybody's saying this stuff about my football team. You think I bought this to get ridiculed and made fun of no like those conversations exists than happen at every level, regardless of whether it's a football team or Donut shop, so he's someone that's always been driven by that. And it seems like a very Woody Johnson move. So I think and with no disrespect to cliff Kingsbury who I think is a great offensive mind. The idea of cliques cliff Kingsbury right now is better than cliff Kingsbury, which is why the jets would make a mistake and do that he won. And this is from somebody named Tom for Nellie. He want forty seven percent of his games at Texas Tech, including a nineteen thirty five record in. In the big twelve. He couldn't get another head coaching job in college this year. But NFL teams want to give him an. Head coaching job. I. I don't think there's ever been a hotter market for a guy who has had little success as cliff Kingsbury. You can thank your coach is LA. Rams. You can think Sean McVay. Yes. Now. Everybody wants the young futuristic offense. Everybody's looking for that. They think that's the key to everything there seeing what the chiefs are doing. They're seeing what the Rams are doing. I know and he's not a young guy but his offense scored forty points a week. So he doesn't have to play defense and they see that as the success. And the NFL has always followed trends one somebody finds a little wrinkle in it. Everyone does their version of it until it ceases to work and they'll go back to regular football. But they follow trends, and that would be perfect trend following it. Doesn't matter what his record was in college. It's about his energy. It's about his vision of the offensive strikes. That's what they're going to sell their fan base on whether they're right or own. So here's the guy. I think is going to be the best hire for an NFL team this year. It's going to be. Matt leflore who was the Hornak coach for actually technically the offense coordinator for the ramps. I thought he was the last cabinet for the average Joes. But yeah continue last year this year. He was offensive coordinator for the Tennessee titans. He is that next young great offense of mind. So does he's got the McVeigh playbook. But now he had a quarterback in Tennessee that wasn't necessarily a pocket quarterback. Although he could do that what kind of quarterback does that guy like to work with though because well, I gotta tell you. I don't care like one of the jobs that's open and one of the jobs that leflore has been linked to is Aaron Rodgers. I don't care what kind of quarterback you wanna work with if you can work with Aaron Rodgers probably pretty good shape. Northey from now. A lot of years because they don't worry Carthy. He's gonna get a head coaching job any minute now because Aaron. Exactly. Yeah. That one might Mike McCarthy's fault. But I, but I do think floor is going to be one of the next. Great young. He's thirty nine thirty eight thirty nine years old. What's cliffs, what's Kingsbury? He's got to be like thirty five thirty six. Probably he's been doing it for a while. Right. Well, he quarterbacked oh seed than college head coach seventy nine. So that makes some thirty nine. Okay. So it's just a little bit younger than me. Yeah. He's in that same age range. I'm telling you, it seems like a jets move leflore isn't a flashier name than Kingsbury. The jets like flash. The floor makes me think of dodgeball, the movie floor has had NFL experience as direct. He's in the McVay Trie. Yeah. Kingsbury has not had college success. Not a lot of headlines on the floor. The jets like headlines they like positive press all over this. They're going. This way. They've all this is a Woody Johnson. Perfect. I don't think it's the right move, by the way, but the perfect Woody Johnson moved these are when all the things every time he's been criticized as an owner and it's homeless every single season in the off season. He goes and makes a move that he thinks is going to be media-friendly, and it has never worked out. And this seems like a perfect media-friendly moved because everyone loves him that probably will work out. I think it's not a big jet. Yeah. Nor my, but if you've got a young quarterback, and I'm sure that's why with Sam darnold. The jets are looking at him. I'm sure that's why with Josh Rosen. The cardinals are looking at him. I still think probably despite the fact that it was a bad look to start with blocking him from talking to the NFL about head coaching jobs. Lynch want probably played this thing right now. Because I don't think he will get either the jets job or the Zona jump. You. Really don't. I don't Dylan of it's good for us. See it's good for us. We're gonna wind up with the I am happy. I think we're gonna wind up. I mean, dick we're gonna wind up with himse offensive coordinator. Which is where? No. Yeah. That free. The doors have shaking out for anybody feeling everything. Real in here. I am. So. All right. Let's do some Lakers here. Lakers lose by thirty to the Minnesota Timberwolves. They did the natural thing they fired their head coach. And so. Which is what you do a big win. Thank you. You won by thirty two. You're gone tiptoes out at at Minnesota. But aside from that it was it was a terrible game for the Lakers. They've looked. They looked as bad as they've looked in any game this year. Brandon Ingram five of sixteen from the field. No three point attempts. Lonzo ball, no points to assists. Josh heart three of twelve from the field and fix them reason. There's numbers in my aunt. That's cool. Looking at anything. And I think I'm wondering if it's time to start dialing down the expectations for Brandon Ingram night been amongst his biggest fans, I said, I think Brandon Ingram is going to be an all star player in this league. I don't see development year over year. Now, make no mistake. I think regardless he is gonna wind up traded at some point. Do you agree with that? I think so I will say this an Anthony Davis trade this season is not something anybody's really thinking about. I think we should be thinking. Yes. Because of the Boston as the Boston threatening sack, and I understand that. But this is the moment that Brandon Ingram is under pressure to trade him in that moment is quitting on him before you've sort of seen what kind of man, he can become this is I know I said this earlier in the show, but this is the time to be patient to see if this moment can make or break him and to see if he can sort of break out of this before LeBron comes back and fixes and saves everybody. And all of a sudden they man the teams playing much better defense and the offense is flowing so much but will. That's because of LeBron James changing every aspect of the basketball game. So while he's gone instead of us just harping on him understand like give him the time to see if he can start to have one two maybe three games before LeBron comes back. Although I don't think there are that many left until round comes back. Right. But to at least see if he can sort of push through this and give you at least one good game. If he can't. And you think that's enough time to sort of figure like, hey, there's a lot of pressure on them. He didn't sort of pull through then you can talk about it this season to get ahead of Boston. But I don't know how valuable he is if he's playing this poorly. You're asking them to take trade based purely on prospect. That's my thought is is he to some degree being exposed which will lower his trade value as we get towards the summer will. I think if they would have six men him when he came back that would have been assigned that he wasn't gonna get traded that they were gonna give him more time to develop a not put so much quieter your. That because it would be less pressured the fact that they put him right back in made me think. Hey, let's showcase him. Let's build him up. And then let's make a move. If he was sitting on the bench. I feel there'd be less pressure. They'd be like, yo AMAN. Let's relax skit you enough the bench you can dominate some second team guys. And as you get confident will work you back in the starting lineup. They threw them right back in right? When he wasn't playing when he went out. So to me that was like, hey, let's showcase let's let's let this guy shine. Let's let's show what we have in the sky and see if he develops. He just hasn't yet. Let me pick on that point and say that coming up for you in four minutes, we've got track Ireland ESPN LA.

"All right now, I am a professional and now you've been doing this job long understand. You don't move your favorite teams root for the greater good Luthan shown stuff like this show. That's put in the name of safety. Somebody NFC be sanctioned. You cannot have all this in Atlanta for the Super Bowl. I'm telling you that's going to get somebody killed and given that both of us will be in Atlanta for people to die. Just mostly don't wanna die. So good of the show. You can keep it safe. We don't need another Atlanta Super Bowl with a defining theme is what goes wrong. First name today. However is the eagles because last night eagles bears came down to one kick in came Cody parkey for key. That's watch poker. Probably not. Sixteen fifteen they did the ice thing, by the way, he made that one. And then this. Not is so hard to do. Oh, unfortunately, he wasn't trying to do. Oh, oh, do the life of the kicker if he had made that he'd has some glory for about a week. He missed that. He might get a brick. It is when she at anytime anyplace, they don't care who's around. No, he needs to enter the Steve Bartman witness protection program now because everybody is furious that their favorite sport is the kind of sport where the ball is oblong, and guess what stuff? Like this little the ball is tipped to the line of scrimmage led to some blame. Like, I'm not going totally full. Seventy two kicker does get there a tip. But there's nobody else in the stadium except for the other kicker who give you consider doing his job. And all people say to him is he ain't no real football player. And I like to think if the ball was tipped you must acquit, but I don't think that's going to happen. Well, Mani Nick foles, are you believer now or what what's happening? Why why are we talking about believing in the do that let an office this scored sixteen points? What are we talking about here? Did you watch the game because anybody could watch that game come out of the believing Nichols through to two a sense in the first half and tried to throw more in the second half. I got today at one the game. He's old Michelle to foyer van with the second half graphics on to try to make it look decent. That's that was like fifteen for twenty four four hundred fifty something yards. Their defense won this game for this is not about believing in Nick phone. No, I agree. The defense was tremendous leg look that worked out, but that was one of many hospital balls that he was towing up dare. Go ahead. Couldn't have been loving. None of that. There were hospital balls the offensive line, by the way was tremendous giving him protection against the best defense in the league by far. But there was some big Nick energy in this game. Boy, and all I wanna say all I want you to think about is that. You are measuring this energy. Well, this is the thing. Here's a creator of Levin. Booty all I want to point out is that nipples has whatever the opposite of lemon booty is based on what the Super Bowl. And now they scored sixteen point is knocked rate. What are you talking about it? They only scored sixteen point with that big throw at the end on that drive that made it happy before down at the goal on fourth down at the goal line. Absolutely. And they called the time out. It was all in on Nick foles big foles, the Golden State and he's living. He is alive. And he is being why do we have to else to? We have to act like this has anything to do with him. We don't we. Required to buy it. The narrative that we have created as an industry. This was not about him. They won the game while he was playing quarterback. That's cool. We don't have to make it any bigger than it is pretty big though. What is next car? Did you hear that by the way? Lamar jackson. There. It is made right through the fourth quarter and their loss to the charges Jackson's three attempt twenty five yards and an interception. Bob, lows John Harbaugh gone to Joe flacco John Harbaugh made the right call here. Bo because he was in powered by Iraq rec- in sports that I usually kill usually kill all the coach getting in the way. But sometimes you should not let your play calling beat democratic by that. I mean, don't let the arena call the place for you. He has a year left on his contract. He's an extension in the works. And what he made the call on was Joe flacco cat help us in this moment. And I'd rather make life easier for Lamar and myself and this team going forward by leaving this kid in. All right. Well, I inner tain the possibility after they made the changes he was a chance that they could wind up going back to Joe flacco after that though, they went six and one and at that bright this became the mar- Jackson's job so the mar played poorly for basically three quarters area early. So the question then becomes if your quarterback is playing poorly is your solution to go to a bad. Quarterback. Now one who is simply playing four early in the moment. But one who was kinda demonstrated himself to be bet was what Joe flacco done by the time. He lost that job. No. They should not have gone to him. In fact, by the time it all came around in the end, you would not have necessarily spent Joe flacco to play as well as the more Jackson did in the fourth quarter. Lamar Jackson by the and after that fourth quarter. You mentioned had more passing yards than Philip rivers was held to one hundred and sixty by a ravens defense, which was very good. But I do think it's worth pointing out as good as that. Chargers defense was it did feel like Lamar Jackson's main talent bow which is to be faster than everybody else did not seem to come to roost here. Right. He looked like he was caught on a wears by game playoff speed that was actually faster than him. Yeah. I mean, that's going to be an adjustment. That happens with a rookie. You would expect the other part of this is we talked about this before the game. This is the second time that defense had seen this offense running an offense right now that is unlike anything anybody else in the NFL running then they come back out. And they're like, oh, no, no, no. We have in fact. Seen this before. This was going to be a tough game for the ravens authencity their defense played bear very well their quarterback did not play. Well, their quarterback is one of the reasons why they lost the game. However the quarterback is their quarterback. Like, this is their guy. They're in on this now, and they weren't going to make that decision in the middle of that game derail with the larger plan. Yes. And after the game you had chargers players saying that we had watched the tape on the Mark Jackson and not adjustment playing in for the second time in three weeks that mattered because based on foot positioning, it seemed of the line of everybody involved in that offense. They could predict what was coming. And that is something they're going to have to solve all. So they did something that you don't see they played basically seven defensive bag out whole gay not dedom- baby the quarter, they had seven DB's out there, which almost seems counter intuitive. When you're talking about trying to stop a team from running the other thing, though, I think this is to consider they probably need to let the more throw the ball board because they were a bit predictable early. Last name the colts colts cruise to a Twenty-one to. Seven victory yesterday over the Texans. Bo and have now won ten of their last eleven. So did Andrew lock in Marlin MAC, they all convince you they can beat the chiefs this weekend. Oh, they can beat the cheats because the chiefs Cain be beaten by just about anyone because that chiefs defense can make just about any other offense looked like the chiefs offense, they can win it. Now. Are they going to win it? I'm not so sure about this with Texas had plenty of chances to make plays that would have had to winning this game. The difference came down to the fact that the Colt had a better quarterback than the Texas do and the colts have a quarterback who played much better than the Texas Coon back. Yeah. And I would say that the colts we have spent a lot of time wondering did they adequately protect Andrew luck his shoulder and therefore his career and this was the game where they proved to everybody. No. We got him. We got this Morlin max at the record. Bo playoff rushing yards by a tailback for the colts. They have an offensive line led by my brother Winton, Nelson who was pancake people today. Uncloudy JJ watt. No, they have him under control. And it's rolling right now, ten of eleven is up in the hottest human leads still. He's not your brother Pablo by like, you get to claim all of the Asians. You don't get to claim white dudes named Quinton. But is not your brother if he's anybody's brother. He would be mine in spite of your attempt to see if he was Asian because you thought his eyes may have been a giveaway. They are something of a giveaway, but I did find video of him taking taekwondo lessons. So. Oh, yeah. Reality Clair's welfare to this world, by the way, you become less white because you took taekwondo lessons. Okay. Colts, though, this is a much more talented outfit than we had seen them having. Absolutely. This is impressive. What they've managed to put together because. Yeah, they kind of bird years of Andrew luck's career it might not look like because they kept going to the playoffs. But they never had a team that looked like it had a legitimate chance to make any noise. This one looks like a team that could make some noise. They look like they could in fact beat the chiefs this next round. I'm not betting on it. But they could I am leaning that way because they've given up the fewest sacks in the league in this eleven gave run they have the number one scoring defense. But after this game vote, we have a toast from jimmer say to wash. No me. I'm a perfectionist guys. I know you guys you got Moore in the tank, okay? Like thirty one points, baby. Maybe. I will leave it at that. I'm sorry. I don't wanna watch mood on screws. I love. Say. Vows a player jimmer say it would be a cool owner to have like they like you fuss at she totally. But I will also say that if Jim Irsay was a player he'd probably be placed in some sort of protocol after that speech. There was something. I mean watched the the faces in the background, right? Frank reich. Look into players looking a little bit of comfortable with our with our data to wet air odors. A bit of a weirdo. Right. Like, this is what it is. You just hope made his cameras over there. I hope he didn't say anything crazy. Start saying Beatles song, and nobody knows worse to in there, even Frank right? Lease didn't dance there is that coming up next. Are you believe in the Cowboys? Do you believe? Listen to this show to apple podcasts, Bomani is too. I've got a podcast. Where's yours Pablo? Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete blades since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in his hockey skates. Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven peak realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how Geico proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out ratings are things as being to you from above the Heineken river deck and pier. Seventeen. Got to say, it is the NFL got the one thing it needed out of this weekend. If nothing else was that. The ravens will not be playing the Super Bowl in Atlanta. They don't need. Then you're not. Really do not. I quote this win against a very credible. Seattle team will make people think more highly of Jason. Said Jerry Jones about his coach Jason Garrett so boat this game. Make you think more highly of Jason Jason Garrett had a job for nine years. One game. The change my mind about him after he's had the job for nine years. Whatever conclusion you have about Jason Garrett has already been drawn even if they win a Super Bowl Jason, Gary, you know, what you're going to say Dan Jason Gary won a Super Bowl. But you're not going to change anything that you think of him already kudos for pulling this season off though, none of us thought that it was going to end the way that he did. But it turned on defense. And that's not what we think about. We'll be thinking about Jason get. No, that's right. The case for Jason Garrett is premised on a bunch of results that I do think cloud the process of how good Jason Garrett actually is the guy did win like the most games in the NFC over the last three years, but I don't think any actual Cowboys fan watching these games loves Jason Garrett. And by the way, we're watching this game. Bo didn't Seattle beat themselves a little bit. I don't know why they acted like they didn't have a really good quarterback in the first half. Get it y'all run the ball. That's the thing you go to people. They do what's that wasn't working while Julian on number three just a little bit. Like, this is Brian Schottenheimer. Classic right here. Yes. A guy who was Russell Wilson averaging close to nine yards per attempt versus a rushing game that was averaging under three yards per game. But yes, the Seattle Seahawks. Have this thing where they ran the ball more than they've passed it. There would be only team to do it as much as they did in two thousand eighteen but by the end of it it went from a strategy to a religion like a suicide called. Why are we doing this because we like running that much of it also gives us to the Cowboys to right? They got those young linebackers in that pass rushing. The game has changed. Jason Smith has recovered from that the bowl injury. And looks to be the player that people thought that he might turn it up late Vander Asia's moved in nicely into that inside linebacker slash fan. So we rolls that was previously occupied by Sean Lee. And he's been out there killing it like the personality of this team two years ago with that offensive line. Now, we look at the. Doughty that team being defense. And now we have to NFC east teams these second weekend. NFL play somebody signs. Quote, Minnesota has fire president and co style. Tweet a age awards and our ski Pablo is prized by this. I'm not surprised by the results because the guy was the head coach Andy head of basketball operations, and that was a terrible idea at the time and it remained. So until he was fired. But the timing is weird because he did feud with the owner seemingly Glenn Taylor over should they get rid of Jimmy Butler or not should they punt this season and play for the future or not? Instead, they fired him after he'd beat the Lakers by twenty two which is straight. The thing. I'll say though, is the guy that the odor probably would have wanted to coach the team became available to coach that team. And that's Fred Hoiberg now that he became available but Taylor loves him. That is his guy people think about that is your hiring. The bulls old coat note of them. They're like, we're hiring our former player and assistant general manager. That's the way that they wind up seeing this. But I mean keeps for what I think we have a visceral reaction to the idea of somebody getting fired but him staying there. Good for who. For what? But they hire. Fred Hoiberg, which I think is ultimately what they're going to do. Good luck with that. No, nothing about the mayor excites. Anybody I think in basketball of this point safer Glenn Taylor? But the big problem for anybody who inherits this team, VO correlates towns looks a lot better. But you know, it doesn't Andrew Wiggins career low in terms of true shooting percentage. His points per game is down to like seventeen. He's a max player who's playing like the opposite. As he is the worst contract in the NBA. Be all the problem is now you can't fake anybody out about Wiggins like there may have been a point where you might be able to get somebody think they get unlocked this dude, and you could sell hot this is year five for him. You're stuck under that contract for who knows? How maybe the light will come for him. Right. Maybe everything will change, and he will become the player that we thought that he could be. But this looks to be the do that. He is right. He looks like a guy who should be better. But really isn't last quote, I've had many conversations with players over the years that would warrant that type of description. This wasn't one of them. Said seventy Sixers coach Brett Brown denying the report that Jimmy Butler challenged him in a quote, disrespectful way, while questioning his role in the offense abode you believe Brett Brown. I mean, I don't know this bread. Brown says this is not the case, right? Jimmy's people say that this is absolutely not the Cajun. I'm inclined to believe that this wasn't that big of a deal as it happened. Right. And on top of that. I didn't get to the place of who wants us to think that this is a big deal where it since you get out like this sort of thing happens in the NBA fairly probably why is it that we know about this. Yeah, Brett Brown said to reporters after the report came out. He said I open the floor to disagreement when I run my film sessions. Jimmy, Butler said she wants to run more pick and roll doesn't like doing the strapped to the stret- the staggered dribble. Handoff type of deal. But in terms of who wants this to be out Jimmy Butler. I think would like to get that big offer bigger than. Any other team could make from the Sixers come the off season bread Brown. And the Sixers would like to have the star slash superstar, depending on your point of view. That's in hand right now who else on this team might want the ball a little bit more. Yeah. One guy is on record saying I'd like the ball little bit more in Joel Embiid. But the thing is with the Sixers as an organization they've been so patently dysfunctional for so long that you can't assume that it's not like the fact that this out to me as a much bigger problem than whatever they had gone off coming up next who you got Alabama Clemson. Man that two point of ours, though, the bears are going to get it and take it the other way. It'll be says an exciting play. You know, what I realize what did you realize that only happens to the fountains, you still really happy? I'm telling you that only that you don't remember what that action? I know. I just keep hearing that you're not a falcons fan, but you're reading during the saints. And also, I I still don't like the saints. Today's today's number five and a half. That is how many points Alabama is favored to win by Clemson in the P national championship two nights. How do you see this game plan out? I mean, I don't see any reason to think that the game is not going to be close like the chance that Clemson has is even without decks Lawrence. They got that great deep defensive lot. If they can get pressured with four they have a chance to come out there and win that game offensively Clemson gets out there with tempo, they've got the ingredients that are typically difficult for Nick Sabin defense the deal with I don't know. How bet against the team? We're receivers that always get open on the quarterback that always gives it tool. Yeah, I'm not betting against Alabama. But let's be clear about something. Alabama's dominance over the last three years has not precluded these games from being super close last year famously overtime three point difference here before that a four point difference here before that a five recipient in the championship game specifically and so- Alabama seems to let teams hang around them. Even if you consider them to be the Goliath that they've been here saying, they're not let. These teams hang around. These teams are good, right? Like, I think the thing with Alabama's it's been so good so consistently good that we forget that. There are other teams that tend to similar level at least if they're going to play against them in one game last year Clinton at Kelly Bryan out there and the recipe for beating the same team has typically been have a quarterback and move Alabama swallowed him up. There was nothing that he can do. Trevor Morris can move enough to get this done and Trevor Lawrence can make throats like I think that this'll be a game within a field goal. I got the very least I think Clemson oke up and Trevor lords is very good, but to amend the only way someone has slowed down to this year is to injure him other than that he's mostly been in. You can do it on the in between you don't have to hurt them. You just gotta get heat. And if you can get some heat, then I think that you got a chance if there's any team that's going to be able to get heat with four people. It's going to be Clemson. All right. In clove somewhere right now. There's someone out there who owes his best friend twenty dollars that his best friend needs. But he's on the internet giving money to a strike stop giving money to strangers on the internet. And I look here's how this thing win. Right. Cody parkey missed that kick a lot of eagles fans called themselves. Q found him on the venom. Oh started sending him money on the VIN. And then when people realize that people were sending Cody park money on vim. Oh, people will like just sweet Cody park. Yeah. Why don't you save me some money? Go do that's right now. Not to the people who didn't even bother changing they full names. It just went out there and just put Cody parkey up top jogging. It's bread. This is though the internet in two thousand eighteen to go on Twitter. Everybody is just reposting memes and posting their sound clouds cash up links underneath we're all panhandling online. But the thing is these people are going to pay it handling what they saw was you're giving money away. I would liked some money that don't really care if the actual Cody. He gets the money that they're talking about. Of course, why don't you just get to me, and it was stopped stop giving money to strangers on the internet unless there's some of the Geneva charitable situation. Even if it is double checking, I feel like double checking who you're sending money to on the internet should apply to not just random people. But also like how does someone get my credit card information every month? I feel like there's something along those lines happening here too online. Right. We're just sort of like sending things into either. And hoping we don't get punished, but we will we will get punished like everybody now is going to look for your credit card. Yeah. I regret that. Yeah. And in fact, I am on Ben moa. So once that happens to me up, I think they can ask also don't forget that donate in closing a lot of you have many strong opinions on who's good at announcing football games. And I do get it Beto old up the name. Okay. It's jot. Your model Ricky Ricardo Baba's. Mexican Jay, Dan Levin. Have you done? No. No. Everything on your and better. Switch out, sir. I'm sorry. Is it said it's better as Spanish for just that they got a different cultural situation that I let them do this while I think it is like the bat flipping, right? Like, you can flip that as an announcer, and it somehow seems okay and natural as opposed to trying real hard. Yeah. No. They it's always better. Like, why don't we do this for every game? We have friends I know who call games were a play by play guys. But I am sorry. They know they ain't got it. Like that. If they should learn Spanish, maybe that'll be good.

And I will Billy has some thoughts there. I wanna get to LeBron James, and I will Mike S and thought to mean was sharing some thoughts with us during the break. I have some thoughts on the Bron James as well. And what he's doing right now shifting the goalpost and making it seem like just getting to the postseason is going to be the equivalent of living winning and NBA championship this year. I love that. I love what he's doing. But I think people really think that Bradley Cooper's relationship, I'm telling you. I'm looking at all the mentioned on Twitter. My kids were saying this. My wife was saying it. My wife's friends were calling the house. They were saying it. I think the guys in the shipping container agree that Bradley Cooper girlfriend is affected by what's going on with Bradley and lady Gaga now lady Gaga was in a relationship. She just got out of it. Right. She's very attractive. At least I find it to be attractive. Bradley Cooper dreamy. A lot of people feel like Bradley Cooper's girlfriend is upset. It's at this entire situation and feel like maybe Bradley Cooper is going to leave her for lady Gaga, I Mike. I find it amazing that people actually want this. And they believe it's going to happen. They did they want it to happen because they love them together. The chemistry is undeniable between Gaga, Bradley. That's electric. It is. And I'm falling. I'm guilty. I fall into it. Every time I see the two of them together. You want them to be together? Did you see the the eye contact made during the performance is shallow? They're lovely couple. A moment where Bradley Cooper cats. That's a microphone stand down sits beside Gaga at the piano. Right. And they share that moment. It's I'm transported back into the movie. I want to believe they are their characters in the movie, I understand doing that. During the movie, I don't think it needed to be recreated at the Oscars last. There's a little bit weird a little bit creepy. It was a little right? Comfortable just because of how intense our connection was. Well, they stayed in character. It was like they were doing a scene from the movie at the Oscars. It was weird Barahmi Malik did come up there and start it, you know, and it's a belting out, Freddie, Mercury tendons. I mean, you just accepted the award and said what an honor it was. I mean, what are they doing? Weird because he didn't have an original song. That's true. That's true. Upsetting. But it's a great point by Greg though. Because now I'm wondering wait is this actually a connection or are? They just playing it up for everybody. They are actors to God's the pretending to be in love with each other. Are they actually are? They just pretending in front of all the other pretenders in the audience. It's a great question. I understand people wanting them to be together. It's like, Mike. Do you? Remember seeing top gun for the first time. I wanted Tom Cruise and Kelly McGillis to be together forever. Yes. Right. They weren't. But I've wanted them to be together forever. So I understand the people who saw that movie see their chemistry and what those two to remain. Well, they were never together should say remain together. Just get together. Flipside of the coin though. Can we really respect performance if they weren't acting to like each other? And they were actually in love with each other. Do they like each other or not like is this a real thing or are they pretending they have one or the other? No. But is it a real connection? Or is it a pretend make believe connection any pass friends? We agree that their friends. Let's start at friends. Do we think they're friends graduated their friends, very close friends, close friends? I don't know if you read about the process, Bradley Cooper, stripped away, all the makeup and got lady Gaga to feel vulnerable set aside days and days just work on how she was going to deliver this performance. It was intense. They obviously shared something together. And the are great couple a dreamy dreamy couple. They do have great chemistry, and they did Mike. You're right. They shared the obviously shared something together that was uncomfortable for her going into anything romantic, but it's a shared experience going through this entire store is born, but she helped him out as well. Right. Getting comfortable with singing and my right? Like, I was reading that. She got him to a place where he was comfortable singing and doing confidently and he helped her get to a point where she was confident act. I mean, that's romance wanna one it really helped each other with your own vulnerabilities amazing. Yeah. But what's real and what's fake because actors are professional liars? Right. And that's the problem with a liar. You never know when they're telling the truth. So how much of this is true? And how much is acting? I don't know because they seem to constantly be lying or is. It all true. I'll never know. Do you know, there's I know and this whole thing that they went through journey together. Please I come to work, and I work with stugatz every day. And we've never looked at each other that way not once. Who else did you want to stay together after the movie by Tom Cruise Kelly McGillis you wanted to stay together forever. Rocky and his wife. You wanted them to stay together. Forever right? Yeah. What was her name in the movie? Gloria what was it agency? Adrian. Adrian luggage is screaming Gloria. Oh, we did. Is there a funnier name Greg good of gone with glory? Rocky gloria. Loria winkle? Like, Mike you wanted Keanu Reeves, and I can't remember name flooring, Patty. You wanted them to stay together. Forever chemistry was fantastic. Yeah. But she also had that thing with Bodey. So they got together on very weird terms, right? It's a good point the bony factor. So what do you guys things? I my my whole heartache is the true love relationship, the two relationship in that movies between Bodine Johnny for you want them to stay together and the pool of the surf right to Johnny. But John's voting the Lori petty story is like third on that list. I guess you're right. About Pappas and Utah might be fourth and might be. I mean Pappas made the ultimate sacrifice spo-. Spoiler alert. I wanna get some consensus in this room. Though. Do we think that Bradley Cooper's girlfriend is jealous of his relationship with lady Gaga? Percents. I was jealous. Kent not be. I mean, she is beautiful and she says actual girlfriend. You don't think she has the confidence of hey, Bradley's just doing this. You know, he's playing it up. It's the Oscars. And now it's over today. Like if you see him again after last night doing stuff in public acting like that then there's something to be concerned about, but it has the end, right? What he's saying? Black saying. This off halfway along knowing I'm on the same page. I felt like I didn't have to finish it because it made so much sense. If they're seen out in public doing weird things today and moving forward, then there's something to be concerned about last night was the final. I mean, everybody's talking. So even if she was cool with it. There's no way that she's cool. But now because Stu gods on the Dan lebatardshow with Stu gods, and he's espousing. These these theories, that's certainly hitting home. Because now she's got the Scots of the world talking. I see a photo from last night of lady Gaga and his and his girlfriend hugging. So I think they're okay. But when was that? Then sitting at the see I'm not sure when your time. Yeah. Big time. Probably is it time stamp now. I'm going into it. Shopped right because I would be interested in seeing some pictures after that performance right hundred percent. And then I'd be interested to see the pictures. You know, if she strolling by like a little lunch place today, and Bradley Gog are sitting outside having Savino knows gonna happen. Become friends offscreen friends, friends that was a moment that I was looking forward to most headed into the Oscars. I was like I gotta watch and Bradley Cooper performed because they had this undeniable chemistry in a wanted to see it for the first time together. I know that there was cell phone video from Gaga show in Las Vegas. And I like everyone else watched it. But I wanted to see the moment on the Oscar stage. And did you see how they were teasing at the entire show? You knew that man. I gotta say this entire show to see it. But the way that they did it was so romantic because they stopped using it for one commercial break. And you're like man here we go. They're gonna toss a break. Again. I'm gonna have to wait another segment, and then you just hear the riff of the acoustic guitar right out of their seats. Not from the sage out of their seat. Come gaga. And Br and Bradley Cooper onto the saves. They said. Everything up as they were walking up on my gosh, this is really happening. This is the culmination of the entire show. My eyes are getting heavy, and I immediately sprawled out of my bed to watch this moment. This shared moment that I think we all had with them. These pictures are reportedly right after the performance she hugged Gaga, and then she kissed Bradley Cooper. This could all be a front. Dame's seemed to be okay. She looking at lady Gaga when she kissed. Bradley cooper. Exactly. I can't imagine. What happened when they got to a private place like the hotel roau? She was was looking at lady Gaga. Oh, my. Oh, hey, it's over it's over. Had golfing with my coli half an hour ago. And Gaga is not looking at it away get out of here. Yeah. Also seating placement. If you notice she was sitting between Bradley and lady Gaga, and I don't think that was a lady Gaga could not have been happy with that seat placement. Because usually they put the stars like the on the on the edge of the row, right? She was third person in what was Gaga staring at. She just was staring off looking angry. I'm feel like I'm being a little reckless here. But that's the angle I see in those is one photo liberal. Hiring is challenging I could stay with this topic the entire day. But. I need to bash. Lebron we'll do it next. Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in his hockey escapes. Pete tractive and practiced until one day when he was forty seven Pete realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how Geico proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out donlevatar. Is it fair to say that Stu gods isn't trying very hard? Stugatz though. Liveth our show with this to God's on ESPN radio. I'll have my weekend Ave. She's coming up in about fifteen minutes. Mike is fired up about LeBron James. I'm fired up about LeBron James, Greg. What do you make here of 'em? We'll play some sound from LeBron just a second here. What do you make of LeBron James recently kind of calling out his teammate saying they're not ready for this not ready for the pressure? And it seems at least from where for from where I'm sitting that he has shifted the goalpost where Najib making the postseason is going to be a big deal. It's kind of fascinating and interesting the way he's talking about his teammates and the pressure that his teammates have on them. Yeah. It's another example of him saying things that would have you think he's the coach or the general manager not a teammate. But that's been sort of consistent with his career. It's funny when he says that his teammates are distracted though because LeBron has his hands and fingers a lot of different things and one of the real. He obviously went to the Lakers was to be closer to LA and a lot of his film and television interests. So I it's pretty strange what he said. But you know, he's LeBron. I mean, let's put that on a good point is LeBron the most distracted Laker, Mike. Let's hear this Afrin. Lebron minutes how you approach the game. Every day is how you how you think the game every day. It's how you play the game. It's how you prepare for the game. And it's not even like when you get Rena us like way before that. Like is basketball is that the most important thing while we doing this? You know, is this the most important thing and you'll life at this time. You know, you give it all to that game. And then you feel like you put it all into it being you have nothing to come look back on able to do other things if you you know, you're able to if you feel like you giving all to the game, then you can go do other things. But if you feel like that, you're not giving as much as you can and can't focus on anything else. Now. This is my personal my personal take, Greg. It's a great point because no one has more going on in that locker room, then LeBron James and he wants their focus to be completely on basketball while he the leader of that team. The best player in the game is not completely focused on basketball right now if basketball was the most important thing to LeBron then from purely basketball perspective he shouldn't have signed with Los Angeles Lakers. Iraq, the draw to Los Angeles wasn't so much. I'm sure they sold them on a vision of what could be done, but the trade deadline came and went they're going with us Rosser as it is near one that's kind of a failure. And no one's favoring them to make it out of the west. So that St.. Got to be over. So from purely of basketball perspective decision doesn't make any sense there. Obviously other draws other than basketball to Los Angeles. Right. And I think those are the reasons I think LeBron I don't know what a mean was telling me during the break because I mean around because he was telling me that LeBron expected them to overhaul that roster this year at least make some changes that would help LeBron out. Maybe get Anthony Davis. There's no way the Braun could have agreed to go. The Lakers and expected all of it to happen this quickly. He had to know this year was going to be difficult had to know this year was going to be somewhat difficult. Right. He had to know that it's his that's one of the pitfalls of choosing a team that's not fully assembled. They went into the season trying to build up those assets and see what they can do. Maybe make a trait they've sort of botched and LeBron by the way, your presentation enrich, Paul is partly to blame for how badly that. Anthony Davis situation jerk got botched certainly I mean, you can't point fingers at other people. I just think it's really unfair for LeBron James to sort of make a show of things. Just sort of say, you know, not specifically, but the intention behind it cow coups met doesn't care as much about basketball as I do he's putting it on them and not an himself. And he's the greatest player, and it probably should be put on himself on this damn point. He went there. He chose an inexperienced team who is not used to whatever whatever it is. They're going through it out. He chose that. He knew that they were inexperienced. He knew that they were young now, maybe he hoped that. They would eventually make a trade this season that get someone like Anthony Davis to help them out. But he knew if they didn't make that trade. And there was a possibility would not make that trade, Greg. He knew he was stuck with a young and inexperienced teed LA. And he tried to trade all those guys away to get Anthony Davis. And now he wants those guys to play hard for him. I'm trying to whole works. Try the trade them all I mean, he himself has said that he wasn't trying as hard by making the the proclamation that playoff mode has been engaged. Okay. So for half the season. Maybe that's because your agent, by the way, I don't have an issue with how lebrons approached this season or. Or his decision. But when LeBron puts voice to it and starts accusing other players on his team of not caring about basketball suggesting that they don't care about basketball in the same way. Then that's when I have a problem with it. Because if I'm just looking at everything that's on everybody's plate. I'm going to assume calc who's McCain's about basketball a little bit more than you. Lebron LeBron has to be frustrated because it's a personal insult to him not to make the playoffs. And he thought he could waltz into LA and even with him. Plus the set roster that they would make the playoffs. And they and it looks like they may not the other thing is that. He just he's always been like this. He's always been a guy who's outspoken willing to talk about his teammates, and and exhort them publicly and put pressure on them. So this is just LeBron. I mean, it I don't think it's a new side of him. We're seeing right. Well, no, it's it's I guess similar to to Ben Rothlisberger with the Steelers. Right. He calls out guys publicly in the an ownership is okay with it. And he would call leadership. Right. He would call it leadership. I would tell them to do it privately. Now, the Braun is more accomplished than Ben Rothlisberger. I mean, that's once you Super Bowls, but LeBron's maybe the greatest basketball player that's ever lived. Right. But there's no like I'm with Mike. You can't call these guys out for not being focused for not being able to respond to the moment and for not taking basketball seriously. When you yourself are not making bass bottle think your top priority right now. That's a tough, sell, and you try to trade all these guys. Away. You're right. It is LeBron he has done this. But this is a tricky, Sal with a bunch of young kids who know that LeBron doesn't want them there. Right. Yeah. And I think when he went to another thing is that he thought that his star power would attract somebody that people would really want to come to L A more than they have it. And that LA would make a deal. I don't think he ever dreamed. Lebron James I'm going to the Lakers, and I'm going to be on an island that they're not going to bring in somebody. He thought that they would get another superstar right in the first year. I didn't he might you think he felt that in the first year. I mean, I don't know what they sold him. But my problem is when you make a grand show of it. He's blaming Lonzo ball for not caring about basketball blame Lonzo ball for being Lonzo ball. I mean, if you're the pseudo GM, then part of the blame goes to you. And he's one not him. But his management is the one responsible for nuke in the entire plan. Anyways of getting Anthony Davis. Did he say Lonzo ball was going to be a star Dylan abroad say that Lonzo ball? He was. He was boosting his trade value. Right. Lebron was like he thought Shabazz Napier too though. So I mean, what does he know donlevatar for me? The eyebrows are probably my best features. All right. I mean, what is that saying thick and they're nice. And you know, the eyebrows who your best feature. But I mean, it's not saying much leprosy's. Best features. Stugatz best. I've got your eyebrows. Your best feature. Do you really get complimented on that lie do often? Yes, they're nice, right? Look at them come on bake. It looked like ferrets VC's live at our show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio.

Why does forty twenty start in NBA history, Robert Kraft, you little devil? Speaking of devils or Briley, Dan, Greg those are the weekend. Observations. I do feel like that. If listen if Bradley Cooper is lost, and he knocks on your door, and you're not home, but your wife is it doesn't matter.

And I think you're right. I think I'd leave with them too. But if you're not home take that out of the equation. He shows up your he's lost. He driving around the neighborhood. He needs directions. He he knocks on the front door. Your wife is home, but you are not marriages over right? Roy marriage over.

Billy put it on the poll at lebatardshow if. Bradley Cooper shows up to your front door. And only one of you are home is the marriage over. Thank you. Greg gave me a list of topics today we have gotten through two of them. Reilly's interview or conversation dance new TV show that debuted yesterday five thirty five ish on ESPN. Told you I watched the. We got to a shorten conversation about Robert Kraft because what Greg made Mike nervous means difficult to talk about. Here's her it is we don't know the extent of the investigation. Obviously what we know what's been announced. But we don't know the extent of what Robert Kraft new, and there's the human trafficking element that certainly makes this nothing to laugh at really right and the NFL did release a statement on Robert Kraft, saying our personal conduct policy. Applies equally to everyone in the NFL players owners management plsy police. So we'll see what the NFL is gonna do here. Here's what's remaining though. The Jim boeheim accident JAL rules. Halftime fiasco, those are the only two remaining there's a third one here. But I'm not getting to it. Because I haven't read up on it. I have no idea it seems to serious. If you've read up on all the other ones, not really. But this seems like something I should read up on before it discussing. It's very interesting the Connecticut high school track controversy. Right up on it read up on it. All right. So you're our Jim bay. I'm gonna go John rules halftime performer over Hijau roles. Halftime performance. You guys feel good about that Jibril's halftime performance for big time. Okay. All right. Yeah. What are you got to roll here? Well, I I wasn't even aware. John rule was still a thing isn't he like wasn't. He popular like fifteen eighteen years ago. He's not still popular thing. Now, it's more of a nostalgia ad. So he's in ova thing to do half. It. Genus was the free Greek freak was dribbling as he was performing which I thought was a little bit rude. But I don't know that jaw rule really deserves his own halftime show anymore. Halftime shows used to be you know, the Super Bowl halftime show. You know, it it it had to be a special occasion. And now you got a regular season basketball game with a halftime show. I I just don't understand the trend enough with F time performance. That's all you had on this. Yeah. I think it was worth. I think it was like a throwback nineties night. And John ruling complained saying that he was a two thousand act and shouldn't be there, but his album was released in nineteen ninety nine. So he'll forgive them for it didn't have microphone issues as well. Weren't there sounded during the halftime microphone was working just fine. It was the rest of the sound. So Greg really what you're objecting to is. You feel like if celebrities going to perform at halftime show it should not be for a regular season game. It should be it should be for big time. Yes. Big time game. Right. Right. But what do you do if the timber wolves? You never have any of those games. We what happens there you go to earn earn. It earn the big halftime show. That's right. I think the funniest thing is that after fire fast, people are still trusted job rule on anything. And he's still getting work. How is that possible? How is that possible? So that's all Greg hat for us on a job. That's it. But there's a sliding scale like rules not going to perform more than likely at the halftime show for the Super Bowl. So this seems like an okay game for him to perform. But didn't get right. Yeah. Why not? But Greg's objecting to even offer him that like rise. John rule performing at halftime of a regular season. You. Talent you see red panda. Honestly. Do any of you know, red pandas have no idea. I can tell by the lifetime. That does that mean it was fake the laughter. What does red panda print pant is a performer that has like the like bowls and stuff, and she's like on the giant lake trice are unicycle and pick some up onto her head dress like a panda. I don't know why she has the name that she has. But there's like general leg it's red panda. It's the guy that can torch himself through like the ring thing and the ones that fit themselves in boxes. Greg ones. The last time you were at a heat game covering it for the entire game. And you saw the halftime act. They don't they don't generally have. Halftime axe. Right. He keeps have a lot of rules and stuff that come into performances. They have that area outside now where the halftime entertainment is. So it's not in the arena. Should there's something going on in the arena. But if you wanna watch the halftime, entertainment, you go out to what the the West End that. Yeah. The pause out there, and they have all sorts of performers that go out there. Why are games entertainment obsess isn't the game itself? The entertainment. I mean, aren't you? Go into a game to see a game halftime deserve for hot dogs and a beer. Yeah. Why do you need to have people juggling and singing and dancing? You're watching a basketball game. We had this conversation a couple of weeks ago. Greg's to God tonight did in terms of how to fix baseball because we said part of the problem with baseball is that you go to a stadium and the gains the most boring part. So they need to take away all the bells and whistles that go on during a baseball game. Like no kids fund zones. Right. No music. None of these other things to stimulate people. They need to. Make it. So that everything is boring as possible in the most entertaining thing going on that day is the baseball game. Like have the libraries owner something like that? And then was like, whoa. Did you see that sacrifice? Bunt? Hold on is your point that the reason why baseball's boring is by comparison to all the fun things. You can do. Yeah. Exactly. Yeah. You need to make the ballpark. More boring needs to make baseball. The most entertaining thing in baseball game. Right. You're gonna put a fun house there. And that's more entertaining. That a baseball game. Just tell you get to put one of those fun houses in there and a couple of arcade games. Anything's more enjoyable than a baseball game at so Billy is right. You have to make the baseball game the most enjoyable thing at the part. I'm telling you this right now they have like races and stuff in between innings. Right. Why don't you have like lectures going on in between innings MPR? Michael. Thank god. It's the seventh inning right of that half innings your kids get run out to the hallway to get lectured by someone about something serious. He'll sit right there. And who wants a baseball game maybe have a funeral procession during. You know between innings couple, art exhibits. Yeah. Have cell phone blockers in all stadium. So no one can access their phones. So we're just trying to five more boring than baseball. Right. We're basically, it seems like we're torturing the people that are going to baseball games to force them into liking baseball chess tournament, right because I told you guys when I went to city feel the kids were doing anything. But watching the baseball game they were in the funds zone. You would think the baseball game would be the funds zone at a baseball game. But that's not what the kids were. They were in the bounce houses. More fun in the bounce houses. They had more fun in the bounce houses. So making baseball the most entertaining thing in a baseball game while difficult is the strategy. Baseball needs to go with if they want this thing to flourish moving forward. Just have a timeout zone for the young kids who while yet. They're not watching the game timeout dome. Punishments for now. This sounds crazy. But it shouldn't be rightly we should be making the product more appealing. And how do you make something more peeling? That's not super appealing to get you make everything else around at worse. Make it the most appealing thing of all the options you have at the stadium. Right. They'll be glued to their seats. Literally will glue them to the see if they think they're going to get lectured the consent. The concession sense should sell only vegetables that kids. Don't like, no condiments reason muster. No, French fries, French fries. You can have you can have hotdogs, I guess because that's like a baseball thing. But definitely no condiments on the hot dogs. I think Greg's point with basketball is basketball is entertaining. You don't need it for basketball. Maybe in baseball. You kind of like this is a good idea. But basketball is so entertaining. It is the most entertaining thing in the arena. John a step down the hotdogs also been replaced canceled at baseball games. Can have something in Julie not. That's right. Yes. We're not Scher tossed way. That is a great point. So what what should we make the? I dunno broccoli. Yeah. Vegetables. In actual Cain of corn. Should there be a reward though, Greg if the kid watches the game for a couple of innings, you get rewarded with something? Good. Yeah. Piece of these Dan stool, not great Cody on ESPN radio.

Hour 1: Clemson/Alabama

The Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz

00:00 sec | 3 years ago

Hour 1: Clemson/Alabama

"This is the Dan Le Batard show with this to spot casts. So that was a stunner last night. But not. Because Clemson won the money in Vegas told you before that game when if went off at five and a half that money didn't five and a half is not a giant ups. Now, it's the way they want and the way they want something that Nick Saban has an experienced since he was the dolphin coach facing JP Lawson. What that's right. He hasn't lost like that since he was coaching the dolphin. But the stunning part of it is and I know American joy laughing at Nick Sabin last night. Over the last couple of years. They didn't beat Auburn that way. Then BBC that way they didn't Louisville that way. They didn't Wake Forest that way. Comington beat Georgia Tech that way, they didn't beat Syracuse that way and then didn't beat them at all. Then beat NC state that way didn't beat up us. You that way? We've not seen that since Nick Sabin has been at Alabama. Michael David Smith had the stat of Nick Saban at Alabama has played with fourteen points or more as the margin. I think it was one hundred six time he was one hundred six until last night. We just haven't seen that. And what I wanted to ask you guys about it is did anyone have it going that way? Did you hear anyone in all of the places that it was being talked about that this game was happening and the weeks leading up to it that people were doing predictions. I'm not talking about did people have Clemson winning, right? Did people? Have that happening? Anybody? Did you hear anybody have that happening? I didn't hear a single person say Clemson with blowout. Alabama know, plenty of people say how Bama blow Clemson I heard some people say Clemson would beat Alabama. But no one said that would happen last night. I didn't hear it. No, I didn't either. And there's such an invincible aura around Nick Saban at Alabama that you think that just the magic of Nick Sabin is gonna prevent any of his team from being blown out in that manner. I it was it was amazing to watch and beyond that now the conversation shifts right because yesterday stew tonight, we're talking, and we were talking about how do you stop the Alabama juggernaut from being the John wooden teams the way you do it is by having to freshman do that to them last night in the system doesn't allow them to go be pros? Like the system keeps them there for two years. And so and you saw. Post-game speech is didn't they didn't have a player just simply telling people to come to Clemson 'cause 'cause it's fun to play. Clemson. I mean, they got something special there that entire D line could have been drafted high and they decided to come back to chase a championship college football playoff team the previous year. You don't see that? In today's game. They came back, and they blew out Alabama who was the boogeyman. And I guess how you how you stop the John wooden run from Alabama's yet another John wooden team out there. And that's what Clemson right? That's what Clemson as it was the prising though to see it was surprising with all that said the Trevor Lawrence play that good in. That's that was amazing. We did we did talk yesterday about the idea that that kid was a pro that I wasn't sure which quarterback in that game was better because I didn't know about his growth, we now know which one of those quarterbacks is better and has the bigger future because to turn the ball over. That's not my joke that somebody else. Healing that. I'm stealing that from some what happened. What happened as tell the joke? It's a terrible Joe's good. Oh, no. I don't like my allies. You know, what I'm going outside for two hundred Cody agreed with something. I'm gonna go sit in the penalty box. I'm not so sure if he projects to be better, but he is six foot six to fifty curb Sherie made the point like, can you imagine what this dude's gotta look like in two years not just on the field. But physically he's got such an incredible frame. And he was getting popped in the pocket, occasionally wouldn't go down. He was taking some shots. He was really impressive with how he would hang in the pocket something that you don't really see with freshmen, especially freshman going up against Nick Saban thing to be clear with what Dan said earlier Lawrence. And who's the why is it Ross the white music with the freshman. It's two more years. Two more years at Clemson. Yeah. The system keeps them there for three seasons if you play them right away and Clemson had three guys who were suspended for last night's game. And they still beat them that badly, which is pretty amazing, but people writing off Nick Sabin today. It's ludicrous that save it's done Daboh than who save in cleanses the new Alabama now on it's both teams are going to be better next year. Correct. They have these quarterback. Yes. With another offseason of development another year of. Physical development because you seen just over the course of the season. How different Trevor Lawrence looks physically than he did when he was coming in and spot duty and relief of Kelly. Bryant Lawrence's is the size of rob gronkowski's the same and maybe ten or twelve pounds lighter. But the thing about college too, though is that you know, when you're a top five recruit. Schools don't need to recruit you. You're so good that you recruit schools, and if it reaches a point where Clemson is the place to go just the way Alabama has been the place ago, then it's gonna metastasized, and it's only gonna get easier for devastating but hasn't Clemson Bennett place to go. I mean Ross the wide receiver fr- he's from Alabama. And it got the best freshman quarterback in the country. I mean, it's been a place to go. I feel I for a few years. Now are we just figuring out today? The clemson's pretty good which is weird because they've been in the college football playoff four straight time. All right. They've beaten Alabama in a title game previously. Right Chevra Laurence's fifty pounds lighter than gronk when you said that. Wait a minute. Fifty wait a minute. How much Trevor Lawrence way Trevor Lawrence is six five to sixteen and gronk his sixty six then also might be he has. He's growing though official burger. Grow it. But he's not still growing. He's not close to. So wait, let still you get my point. But you like football was trailing behind basketball. And this was a about a decade and a half ago day. On the second point. I mean, the point is Trevor learns really big the point is you couldn't sound any worse than you in every way. Like, you're like, it's not bad enough that the that the points are wrapped in phlegm sickness and things that are distracting the show, but on top of that the point stinks, actually, the phlegm level has been pretty good. Dry. But lemme by the point stakes will that point stunk. I worn Trevor Lawrence was I can't leave you alone for a minute here. I cannot leave you alone for one minute here before but you'll poop on the carpet. Yeah. This is incredibly unfair that Trevor Lawrence has a play this physical sport for two more seasons for no money. You saw a decade and a half ago. College basketball realize get good we gotta play these freshmen and not sit on the bench. We gotta play them right away. Because that's how we get the elite guys. And now the elite programs football realize we'll get the best freshman in the country and they're gonna play right away. Otherwise, they're gonna leave us. So now, they're doing that. But their rules are different. They have to say in the super physical sport. Because the NFL says physically you're not ready to handle this league for three seasons. You're gonna have a running back take SEC punishment for three seasons. It becomes in his eye cry that rule is so interesting to me because the two cartels working with each other pro football is protecting protecting its minor league. System, and they file it under all of it under. Well, those kids aren't big enough to play football. First of all, they're Zion Williamson's out there all over the place. But they file it all under health and protection. What is simply is preserved the free minor league system? And we're twenty years I think away from any discernible change because we'll look how long it took the NBA to say. Okay. One and done is twenty years. Yeah. It'll never change as long as they pay people a million dollars to run that one bowl game year. Like that will never change those guys are going to keep getting that money. Well, it'll change with the advent of other leagues. Now the other leagues have to be successful. But competition would breed rule changes. You'd have to think if you have someone like a USFL saying, no, we'll pay you instead of going to college you come here than the NFL might start feeling the heat and have to change its rule look at how we're all talking about Trevor Lawrence today. I mean last night was pretty valuable for him. Like, everyone is gushing over him. Now, I mean value in that. Yeah. But the next years will also be pretty valuable him. I'm assuming right like. Two more years of build up. I mean, he would be the number one draft pick if he entered this season. I'd have my don't you something to an eighteen year old in nineteen year old not being ready? I understand major league baseball, tennis hockey. I get all of it. But a nineteen year old is he ready to play in the NFL. I understand, but the NFL did change its rules to make it easier for someone of that frame at that position. If we can like the idea of this is somewhat ridiculous. Because are we really saying that any human body is quick for the NFL? Like, let's think about that. When someone more quilt he's going to grow. That's right clowning. He's going to grow. He's going to grow physically. He's going to be a bigger player, and he might but the way the rules are in that league right now he can play he can play physically in that league. I don't know about reading defenses and all that stuff. But you just played in that league that was love. Bama. He did that too. Donlevatar Gordon Nelson had a goose egg. Unbelievable. What are the odds money in the Bank? That guy normally best Nelson's Ricky Nelson sixty stugatz hands up if you remember Ozzie and Harriet, but Emma, VC's donlevatar show with this two guys on ESPN radio with vivid seats, and they're at it is easy to find awesome seats any game.

Josh do bow AP the last time Nick Sabin lost a game by more than fourteen points was December seventeenth two thousand and six when the bills beat the dolphins. Twenty-one nothing behind three touchdown passes from JP loss. Last person to do to Nick Sabin. What was done last night was JP Lawson? So I wanna talk to you. We talked yesterday. Right. I know that we dabbled in hyperbole all season talking specifically saying Alabama second team should be the number two ranked you mentioned that day because we actually have sound. And these are not good looks for you. I'm telling you that. I think I'd rather watch Alabama second team led by Jalen hurts play against Alabama's. I will put this on the poll who has a better chance against Alabama 's I team would it be the second team of Alabama led by Jalen hurts lost one game. And I'll Obama or would it be? I'm asking you. The only game develop developing a place at second. I don't say enough dumb stuff by myself with you guys having to edit the stupidity. Into me. Here's another clip, Alabama's at dynasty, a not a ratings monster. But they are on the precipice. I believe of ruining everything the way that you accused the Golden State Warriors of ruining everything because if they can go into Baton Rouge and decimate that defense because there is good at offense. As I happen to think they are it's game over man, Clemson, Ohio State, forty two twenty that happens to a high state that never happens album. But you gotta beat them. Because you returning a missed field goal. One hundred yards. They don't move like that. They don't lose forty two to twenty the way that Ohio State. Nailed it. We made it. Forty four to sixteen. Yep. And now feels like clemson's going to be the Golden State. Yeah. That's right. That's how we do it. Museums are just Decima trade blows year after year. Well, that's that yesterday was fairly amazing that going into that game album and Clemson head played one hundred ten games against teams that weren't Alabama. And Clemson and they were one oh, six and four. I mean to be able to be in that mix to break it up the way that Georgia did by get into the national championship team. And almost doing it's hard. When you're in the SEC, we've seen Auburn do it occasionally. But it's hard to do that he needs someone like an urban Meyer out in different conference now urban Meyer gone, so a who- stopping these teams. I like to get into the larger please explain this to me. Okay. Because I'd like to get into the larger conversation here. You know, how much I mock prediction radio and prediction television. The idea that the NFL shows are still five people in sofa chairs like predicting the game showtimes, got one of those the NFL's Milken this thing just guy sitting around predicting the game of it. And I I want to ask you again because I'm always mocking how poorly the media understands football. Why did no one when more people are eating at this trough than? Ever why didn't know one have that going that way? Like, why did no one have the insight the knowledge the matchup understanding to say in a one game sample clemson's defensive line is overwhelming. We're basically talking about half a football, right? Because that game was still expected Alabama to win in the first half. Yes, or no I stuck around in the fourth quarter because it was ala Bama seriously. I stuck around that long and that game because I thought maybe Alabama could come back. But the reason I think people were unwilling to say that Nick aided never lose his like that seen it JP loss. Mun I know, but that's a terrible way to analyze sports. Just because we have so one loon can go out there and make you know. Sure, there was a whole. Going to sound like a loon before. What if you tell me the way it's going to happen? You set it you think usually wish I usually got got this guy. So congratulations. He's what you want. I yes, I have made crazy predictions. If they're right, I'm celebrated if they're wrong. No one remembers we were all for two weeks leading up to the game. Perhaps. I would said Clinton a blowout. I think the answer you question is that Nick Sabin was different than everybody else. Maybe less night show that he wasn't. But before last night, you looked at Nick Sabin in a different way than you looked at other coaches. This was a coach so great and program. So great that he was not capable of being blown out like this. He might lose once every three years, but not like this. I love to his move of if we hadn't had two weeks off. I would have predicted a blow out when yesterday he was laughing at the idea of flat-footed quarterback at standing back there against Alabama defense and doing with that dude exactly did just being your sidekick, man. Johnson helped me out. I mean, you forget you MBC sixteen over a one. That was my prediction never happened before. I said it it happened that year. We'll put it on the poll please to turn the ball over. Funny or not funny, and again, that's stolen. That is not that is absolutely not mine. Stolen donlevatar on the rig popping it up on the rig. Why were you doing that? So we talked at who who's the we that we talked to young people like suing me, lying L O L film, Greg. Stugatz. Look at Greg Cody trying to get into the hipster conversation with the L O L. Right. I see why am I might just said L O L SMH these live at our show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio. You guys have any opinions on what's going on with our Kelly. This is in this climate are Kelly for the last. I don't know fifteen years has been somebody who does things and you've heard a number of accusers. It's not one willing to put their name. Or face on this stuff. He has done some things that have been done deviously in music for a long time in terms of young women or underage women. And but his his situation when you're reading about it and listening to it feels almost like head of a cult type of control trying to control an environment in in ways that are abusive, and my guess is illegal, but you need somebody to try him. You need somebody to be willing to have the journalists are doing the reporting the journalist's talking to the victims all over the place, and this has been something we've been talking about in some form or another for about a decade. Yeah. It's amazing. When contemporaries begin to publicly this sounds like chance the rapper did saying he regrets working with our Kelly. I found chance the rapper's comment fascinating. And unbelievably. Honest because one of the things he said is I didn't believe black women like they were black women. And I just didn't believe them because they were black women. I thought that honesty by way of his apology shocked to here. Yeah. I was I was surprised that the honesty that's not an easy admission to make. That's not an easy, man. How many people are voting this stuff? How many people don't wanna talk about our Kelly? How many people in that project? We're going to try. There's one right here. We are speaking to dream Hampton producer on the project on this week Thursday going to be joining us, and he'll tell you how many people didn't wanna be associated excuse me. I'm sorry. Is it I think so. I think so. Yeah. Yeah. Stands into the story. There's a. How is that a fine? I mean, I mean, you assume someone's gender twenty nineteen what was her name dream dream Hampton still still is she'll be joining us mean. I mean. To be fair if you rewind a little bit. I was an exactly sure so I want with they'll be joining us. Oh, you weren't. Sure. But I know what year it is. But did you see quest love was quoted as saying, for example to one of the workers on the project? Hey, I'll do anything for you. But I can't do this. So there was some bravery, and what it is that chance the rapper did. Absolutely. This has been as you said it's been about fifteen years that the whispers, I mean, married a lead shockingly young age, we had an avail for our Kelly was set to join us, and I got wait. I got the creeps. And I said, no, we can't we can't do this. This was like five years ago. What did you get where they making this like the world's gotta come crashing down on this guy on maybe not this year. But soon, and I don't want someone waiting up us laughing at a joke that are Kelly cracked, you are still waiting for that, my friend. So speaking of laughing Cody parkey misses that field goal. This plague throughout sports retro and says, I don't feel bad for Cody parkey at all still got his made a living fifteen years of profit off of I don't feel bad for X. But somehow, someway, you guys were talking. The break about feeling bad for Nick Sabin, which was amazing to me. Like somehow during the break you guys felt last night. Like he aged in front of your eyes damn near seventy. I believe he is. Yes, there were people who were who were actually during the game. And after the game making fun of Nick Sabin saying this is Nick Saban getting old right in front of our eyes. They felt bad for Nick Sabin. I had that feeling a couple of times. I must admit here's why I didn't have that feeling. I often have that feeling when America's laughing at someone often, but he's been on the right side of the left her for about a decade. Now be on the wrong side of the laughter. Once there were two moments for me. It's Chris Fowler telling you that Clemson is lined up to defend the fake field goal. And Chris Fowler. Saw everyone saw it. The only person who didn't see it was the guy you needed to see it who usually does see it and that was Nick Sabin. And then afterwards. Yeah. The coach of explaining to Nick probably shouldn't have done that. They're right. That was moment. Number one. The other moment was fourteen thirteen minutes extra point. And Nick was applauding on the sideline. Now. He was at. The kicker head off. He did send them home on an airplane. He was applauding and encouraging. And that is not the Nick Sabin that I know he's finished. Okay there. It is twelve hours after saying all the opposite things gots now pivoted. Here's another thing to make you question. Whether and we're reporting this exclusively is Nick Sabin fit to coach in the condition that he's in clearly he's delirious. I don't know if he's taking urban Meyer's medication. But we have not heard this. Thank you as always. I appreciate on. Oh, you all think I don't like the press. But I really do love you for what you do to get a lot of positive, self gratification. A lot of our players by recognizing the things that they do. Well, and we certainly appreciate all the interest. You create for our sport. In college football is a great game. And something that's great for these young people to be able to learn a lot of lessons in life. So we appreciate you so much for that. Thank you. It's over he's gone by. Someone should tell Nick the press is unable to give self-gratification to a player. They have to do that on their own. But this to coaches, you're not allowed to feel sorry for Nick Sabin and Bill Belichick. That's it. You can feel sorry for any other coach in any sport. But not of it. I think you can feel sorry for him. It's been a while. Now, double G, Greg. I'm in a while. It's been a while. So we were laughing about Cody parkey, and my who is the announcer on this. What's his name because this is courtesy of LA mega one. Oh, five point seven FM in Philadelphia, Ricky Ricardo it's actually Ricky Ricardo on Twitter. And I just double check. I thought people were just being racist. No. His his actual name is Ricky Ricardo. It can't be the character from I love Lucy Lewis, a Cuban cliche of deshea nez. Look, chris. I'm not saying that that's the announcer. I'm saying that Ricky Ricardo can't be his real name his real name. And this audio would come courtesy of lumbago one. Oh, five point seven was names. Probably Riccardo Riccardo. If it's Ricky Ricardo, right? What I'm saying is named can't be Riccardo Riccardo. We've got to get to the bottom of this regardless. Here's the call of the the field goal that ended Chicago season. And at the end of it, a mascot bear fellow ver crestfallen and broken but still smiling because look on the faces always Milot, Cody parkey what I. What? Limited. I'll set, you know, sake. Call set your check. Sick. Oh, I don't know why he was singing Chicago. That was probably something he had in his library of throw out there if they won in dramatic fashion, he used it. Anyway, they lost in dramatic fashion. But I love I baba. It was it was it. Poppy Papa I wanna hear that. Again. I wanna get the full the full brunt of it because that was sensual in nature the AIBA. Cody parkey water night out of this. That's limited. How's that? No doubt. Oh sent yo shit. Wakes show. Tune totally inappropriate. Stay. Ona fatal Cinco whom does yet the FM Philadelphia donlevatar thread, Cody is married to a Saint of a woman and this morning. She finally shouted shut up at Greg Cody. And the reason she shouted shut up this respectfully, Greg Cody is because he would not stop singing kung FU fighting to guts, I was in the kitchen making coffee, and it's just you know, soon gets in your head. And you gotta let it out. And I only know like everybody was coming. His fast that. After about a ten renditions of it at first of ball on the TV went up a little bit. And then he's like would you shut up? I'm trying to listen to this. How do they get into your head? Do you? Remember, I don't know it just appeared in a magical. It's just appeared in my hand. I had to let it VC's libertas show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio. So we got a bunch of new projects in the air, and they're coming to you and a trickling fashion because we're finding our footing. We're learning how to do things we ask that you have some forgiveness and patients with our mistakes, as we sort of find our footing on some of the things that we're doing all of which is meant to bring you more of what you like around here without diluting what you already like around here because we really don't want to literally or otherwise sell out. Even those got starts. So that's Dan, we've got a south beach session. We're still trying to convince to God's, but then nego-. She have been hard because he's been unreasonable. We're still trying to negotiate with Stu gods to have him be a part of this lebatardshow, friends universe laugh or lebatardshow. Af is what we're going to be calling it. But stugatz is not yet decided whether he wants to be a part of it or not or he has decided for how much he wants to be a part of it like how much money it'll take to have a part of it. And so far, it's unreasonable. I said it yesterday I'll say it again today. I am ready. I mean, there are some little last minute negotiations that might have to take place. But I'm ready. I had a nice little meeting with Mike yesterday gave some thought to our meeting on the drive home. I am ready when Mike is a hassle negotiation. Well, we are gonna have an announcement next week. I'm gonna tease us right now regarding the network, and it's not students yet. Ooh, I should break that news. More Nelson's how many now part of this is. Golick lingo, this is coming at you at waves part of that is because we don't wanna throw too much at. Yeah. I can't tell you buy this shirt. Listen, my podcast. Check out. This new podcast. Check out this podcast. And you do it all at the same time. You only have enough bandwith people. Right. I understand that. So this is a promotional strategy. Okay. Shakeout episode one. The first official episode of south each set. I love that. There's one official episode never mind about the last one. That was just a teaser episode. Even though it was probably the first episode to and don't forget about the verdict is how's it still episode? What don't forget about it episode one our second relaunch, I'm in next level promotional meetings. Okay. This is how you do it point seven five. So this is episode one eight officially launches the libertarian friends digital audio network. It's with Neal Brennan, a great friend of the show. A really interesting guy. We really enjoyed this out each session. We hope you do too. It's on all the platform. Search south beach sessions subscribe, please and rate and. Review, I crave your feedback. Let us know all like it and put it on the poll, please at lebatardshow because I want to know is lebatardshow friends coming out in a trickle because a we don't wanna overwhelm you or be. We simply wanna use all of ESPN's promotional power sell our stuff that's outside of ESPN. Go ahead and answer that question. Let's start show. But we do need you. If you support what we're doing around here, we need you to rate subscribe review. So that we could keep doing it. So that we could keep we're not we're not sitting here. You know, we don't own.

You're not gonna probably listen every episode of south each sessions. Oh, you do. But if you subscribe, it counts, and that's what matters to metro. We want we match. That's right. We want to Jerry rig the system the same way that Cody does for clicks, which he did by the way with his new beat. Now. Have you guys noticed the Greg Cote cody's new beats scoops, Cody is you as me when he's in need of clicks. He just writes long thing or betraying things about me. He does I don't think even disputes it. When you look at him. He I don't think he would dispute it the last piece was very flattering. I felt like it was a piece to make up for all the other pieces. The betrayal pieces are totally on me. Those are just an active joy on my part. I love breaking news that Dan doesn't want broken yet. In the case of this last profile on Dan in the show. I must say that was not my idea. It was suggested to me by an editor much to my benefit as it turned out. It was very well done. It was I must've been listen to interview me for a long time. And you only put like one or two quotes. It was a little bit supported. Yeah. Well, I can imagine you were knowing you.

Hour 2: Demolition Man

"The Dan Libertad Woodstock. Gotcha podcast is brought to you by the Capital, One saver card or four percent cashback on dining entertainment, ju- percent, a grocery stores of one percent on all of the purchases. Now when you go out you cash, what's in your wallet terms apply? I own Derek Dietrich an apology Cincinnati Reds. This is a person I should have been rooting for instead. I said he wasn't a major leaguer when he played for the Marlin and you just read the stories got a bunch of home runs. And he is the all or nothing player that is all over baseball these days, but he's obviously a major league and this weekend, he got hit six times by pitches in a series six times, because he will not back away from a pitch. He just stays in there. And if anyone tries to throw him inside, he's just going to get hit by the baseball, and it got me to thinking, man. That is a really brutal way to get on base that has to feel bad for days afterward, but as a pitcher or pitching staff at some point, don't you guys. He's not moving. We gotta stop putting them on base. Six times is great for your on base percent. He's got one of these elite skills that Billy wants to put in the hall of fame. He's got an elite skill at getting hit by a pit. He's better getting hit by a pitch than anybody. Like he used to lead the Marlins year after year getting hit by pitch. And this is when he was like a platoon player who would only play part of the time he's always getting hit by pitches. A pretty sure one of the ones over the weekend was a strike. That's what we're talking about here. This is like one of these guys that pitchers hate that just leans. He's got an elbow guard on cutting knows how great is it Chris, the pitchers hate him. And what once they're retaliation tactic hit him. There's not. They hate him. And he's like, oh, head thrown at me. I don't care such a weird sport man like this guy. Like always stands. I'm a hit him. What was a worst mistake by you saying, Derek Dietrich wasn't a major leaguer or calling Christian yelich just slap hitter. I'm trying to see which was more wrong with that on the poll at lebatardshow, which one was Dan, most more wrong about saying Derek. Same Derek Dietrich wasn't a major league. I I'll play this game all day. If you've got a bunch of different categories. I'll take calls on this. Where was Dan? More wrong. Seven eight six four five six four eight three seven is the telephone number or calling nationally, gin VP Christian yelich just slap. A slap hitter. I feel like there should be consequences. Like if you get hit by pitch more than once a game like second time to bases. Third time re-based then you won't hit them so much. Right. But then it's also incentivizing him to just keep leaning into pitches. But who's willing to do else willing to do that? They're dietrich. No. But there's very few people willing to do that. Like to me if he's willing to be hit six times by pitches. You don't want go ahead. Take all six of those basis. You aren't I feel like every team has someone in the minors that if that's their ticket like that's a new job. It's guy that gets hit by pitches. You're going to have people lining up for that job. Like I could be a big Lear. And all I need to do is get hit by a pitch everyone. Oh, well, no, no. Yeah. Put it with do it. Oh, wait a minute. I wouldn't you? Dot do that, actually. No. Thank you. What just happened to here? I got a little too excited because I came up with this new position of people that just get hit by pitches, and how it's easy and I'm just thinking about the money, and how much money they'd make. But I yeah, I take that back. I would not do that. That's interesting, a designated hit batsman. Well, this is what I want to ask you. Let's do it this way. How much would I have to pay you a major league minimum? How much would I have to pay you to say you're going to be on a major league roster all season all season? Oh, okay. But you need to lead the league in hit by pitches. Your whole job is basically. That's correct. Like how let me where do I have to put that salary? I don't think I don't want that job man that hurts. Everyone coming out of the bullpen these days, it's during one hundred ninety eight miles an hour. That's the problem because this role would be probably Pinheiro on now imagining like the guy goes out there. He doesn't even have a bat and his only job is to somehow get in the way of one of the pitches. Hand on the plate. The bullpen guys. You're right. Throws so hard right now that it makes it even less of a desirable job, this has to hurt, like, you know what? Alison, can you? Please have Derek Dietrich come on the show. So I could publicly apologize to him for say, I want. I think that's gonna they may not happen. But I'd like to I'd like to have him on the air in just publicly apologized to him for what I said, give them extra padding goalie pads. Oh, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no this job. No padding. You can't be the guy that gets hit by pitches, and have padding on, that's cheating job. No, I know. That's why that's why you don't get the cheat code of the padding regular hitters can have the padding but the designated hit by pitch batter. No padding. But does the padding help because I mean, the helps does it actually make it pain free because I think like a bulletproof vest, it'll start. It's the stuff on the wrist and the and the elbows like the knee. I'm telling you, I don't wanna be hitting in the shin by a baseball. Yeah. But like when Barry Bonds is going out there. He was going out there and like nights gear. So when he was getting hailing, it didn't even make a difference like they could have hit him with a sword. And no one would've felt it where you get hit is definitely important. If you take one in the middle of back, not that big a deal doesn't her telling you, I'm telling you. I mean Roger. Her. Roger ninety not ninety five mile an hour pitch. But I've been hit by pitches before all right. I'm saying of all the sports you talking about like a quarterback getting hit on his blindside. That's way more painful than getting hit in the back. Major league baseball minimum salaries five hundred and fifty thousand dollars. Would you take that? Oh, yeah. To get hit not not to get hit by a pitch if he did lead the league in being hit Cy pitch leave the Leah's not your thing. I you're increasing volume. And there's a chance and I have no idea where these are going. So there's like your head is going to get hit if you continue down this job path, but you're gonna get seriously duck those, those are allowed the person that gets hit by a pitch conduct balls, there had, by the way, I'm just gonna point this out to you MICH Haniger of the Mariners this year ruptured a testicle fouling ball himself. So. Guys hurt. Sometimes it must always hurt reckon duck Doug about not being able to duck because there's a flame thrower. The record for most hit by pitches in his season is fifty one times. So what do I have to do in order to meet my quota was hit, fifty two time who, who said that who set the record Hughie Jennings? Let's is he still with us played in eighteen ninety six. Let's I was Greg, Cody look on his phone and find him. Thank you, fifty one times in one hundred sixty one hundred sixty two games back, then it was who's active leader. Let's find out who the active leader in, let's just ask them what their body feels like. And if this is worth it, if this were just their career path, I want to know Mike, how many people in the audience, you think got the sentence. It hurt Roger Dohrn. I've won ask you. I want. I loved the I love the joke. Okay. But I'm wondering just what percentage of our audience, do you think got the joke? I don't think Amine Ameen is here. He did not get the joke between the shoulder blades door and sweet spot. Billy. Yeah. But Dorn wasn't a tough guy. Thorne was kind of like a little whiny like this guy that you have to lose this way on the roster. Billy. Yeah, exactly. That's why. Them being like a goon off guy coming out who you like a sumo wrestler. And honestly, I mean this might sound bad. But the bigger the better in this role because it takes up more space and there's more room for you to get hit. It's also harder to duck. When you're bigger, you're telling me, I can dock while Giancarlo Stanton could've duct, to, like, sometimes you're not going to be able to duck away from one hundred and five miles per hour of gas, but that could happen at any baseball player. Look, we've established and this is a very high risk job. The question is how much money would it take for you to take this high risk up? Well Billy backed away from wanting the job at all. There is not an amount of money. I'm softer than Roger Dorn. What about you, Chris, what are you what is the amount of money? I I'm telling you, I'm gonna give you a major league salary and you're going to get to be a major league baseball player for a season. But you one season yes, but you have to lead the league in hit by pitches. I have a really important question, though. Like, is it Billy's body? Or am I major league body because if I'm a major league? Body that I'm getting hit by pitches if we're giving them Jeff Bagwell's body. You're doing it Bagwell. Yeah. Bag. Oh. Can take a hit. Well how about this? We give you whatever body you want, but you're paying fresh, hold remains exactly the same as what it is. Now, wait a minute. You guys think that being hit on Jeff Bagwell's elbow feels different than being hit on Craig councils elbow. Absolutely a bag could take a hit where Bijou. Embattled versus Bijou man hit bag will cyber says Bijou spy. I worked for the pitcher, if they hit Bagwell side, this is just going to richocheting right back centre there. No. Splash. That's that was that was not Bagwell, Bagwell's size or crazy. Because just the padding saints also at nights. But no-one no-one had Jeff Bagwell person on this plan. Bagwell's right ever miss a spot day. Nope, put it on the poll, Guillermo. Did anyone on the planet have Jeff Bagwell's tixx, did he ever miss a splat date, put that on the time he set up to the point that, that dude was doing squats? But then, on the poll as well was ever was every day squad day for Jeff Bagwell teeth so people why do these players make us so happy, why do it's. I gotta get to one of mean L has it was just saying during the break about demolition, man. Speaking of things that make him have someone tweeted us teddy beanbag Bagwell's to pitches away from breaking the hit by pitch record. I don't know if it's true or not it's just some random person on Twitter. But how about that? You gotta get lower. If you wanted to the back. You gotta go right here right here, right here. Only picking out underneath you. I don't know if he did that with his hand. I'm gonna be feeling this one Amaro would would you do me a favor. Please. Would you all as I read this team? So add would all four of you get in the Bagwell's stands for us. All right. All right. Zoom in on me over here. I got let's go. You guys just do your thing in there and me.

So I can give the proper credit here because this was something that was done, and it was a bit startling to. Here's how little these guys know about pop culture. We did it, Dan ESPN sat at the Kayla Johnson, who a producer who injected one of the guys for just being so clueless. About ninety s stuff just leave disco. And what was it? What were the highlights of the highlights of it, were, they would show them pictures of things from the nineties, and ask them what it was. So, for instance, showed him a picture of a super Nintendo gaming system. One of the guys called it a Dreamcast. I called it a game cube. They showed a picture of outcasts guys had no idea who it was showed a picture of Destiny's Child guy looks at it and says, what was it the cheetah girls? I don't know what the cheetah girls are. Cheetah girls are legendary Disney act. They never saw the, the cheetah girls movie. No, you remember cheetah girls cheetah girls were big time, Alamein. You're sore making vehicle big bigger than Destiny's Child as a star. Magnolia, you're in hell. No. None. You know what I would just say they were on the level. No, not even close to us. These out my favorite part about that video was that everybody every single person. Knew a good burger was, which was so strange to me. It's like it was the film that spoke to them like this is this is there. You know movie that really gets me as a person, good burger, they all had the quote to welcome to good burger. Good. Burger can't take your water. Yeah. All now is such a good show. It was like the back row got the thing that we do every day here. Right. This is what they did at the NBA draft. They're younger than us, though. We know who Desi shoulders. So the cheetah girls were raven Adrian, the girl from three L w would really Little Women. And then she had a nice little career after that. And then another one. A what was what was the most appalling, what from from that list that I mean, just gave you of appalling oversights among these NBA draft picks because I don't, if what chance does Roger Dorn half Mike? If that's what we're dealing with eighteen to twenty four like what chance she'll do the show for everybody? Roger Dorn just little sprinkle for the few that get it. They also didn't know a fanny packs, which is weird because fanny packs are coming back. Right. That was really weird. That was really weird because everyone's got a fanny pack now. So the, these kids, I guess are don't get out much. I don't know. Everyone has a fanny pack now. Yeah. Fanny packs are having a resurgence. Now, it's like a big fashion thing that's happening. And if you're going to go out to like a music thing or whatever like a fanny pack is convenient because it's small and you could just put all your stuff in there. Put it on the pole, Guillermo at lebatardshow. Are we witnessing a fanny pack resurgence without a doubt without a? No. I mean this, that's real. Okay. He's not he's not being Billy now. He's actually giving us real information that mean. What does that mean? Like he's not being building now. I was at an insult. What does that mean? I think it's a question worth exploring that was straight talk straight talk, wireless, everything s only at WalMart. Mike. What are you looking? What are you looking up over there? You seem fixated on something on the computer on movies dot Disney dot com slash the cheetah girls, you can purchase. There's a dash in between the cheetah girls is not all one word. I know we've all made this mistake. Yeah. Raven Simone was, yes, you. Beyond say the two girls and Adrian from three L w was also, she right? She dated rod card. Ashes adrian. Oh, yeah. But if you wanna purchase a DVD right now, it's failed for purchase on that website and the DVD features an alternate ending Mike, Mike. This is what I'm going to say. Don't purchase DVD know why. 'cause by the end of county or twenty nineteen the Disney app is gonna launch, and then you can stream all that stuff. Putting the sequel where they go to Barcelona donlevatar. You're just allowed to give me one word on what you think. I tell you American flag, you give me one word on what you think. Go ahead. Chris. You're only allowed one word freedom. That's what I was going to go with stugatz here. Mo bald eagles through words. Well, I mean, God two dollars. I mean to the five. Is to be. Cut bed. With two words men, apple pie. BCC donlevatar show with this two guys on ESPN radio ESPN radio's presented by progressive insurance. Guests on the Dan Le Batard show up here by the shell Pennzoil performance line. And now your sportscenter update, Derek Dietrich on. Saturday was hit by a major league record sixth pitch in one series during the red set with the brewers Albert pool halls made his return to St Louis for the first time since he was signed with the angels in two thousand twelve he finished series going forward. Eleven with a home run in all look out. And finally thumb, hardy has been confirmed by Sony Pictures to return for the sequel to venom the first installment of the Spiderman. It's been all franchised goes eight hundred fifty five million dollars worldwide despite poor critical reception. The movie was terrible then. I think it was that bad was awful. I went in thinking that it was going to be terrible. And I thought Tom Hardy's performance saved it. He was definitely trying to do something totally different than what the rest of the film makers were trying to do. He mailed it all the latest headlines and information tune sportscenter shocking comment union party doesn't mail anything. That's my favorite actor in the world. He made it in tune into sports center on ESPN radio all throughout the day. But it on the poll Guillermo did Tom hardy mail it in. I mean, is that a lot of movie opinions today? He was just talking about demolition man again. Non-stop non-stop Jamaran about demolition, man. I have until the end of the segment to take back take. Right. I'm going to take back. Tom hardy doesn't mail anything in this means war from two thousand and twelve starring Chris, pine and Reese Witherspoon. No. It was fun. It was like this means war. It was fun. You didn't like venom. Exactly. Yes. I didn't like venom guys have opposite movie tastes. I mean, rotten tomatoes, now I can't be pointing to critical scores in our audience. Got crushed. Right. But, but it was critics or audience was okay with it. Yeah. Audiences loved venom to the tune of eight hundred and eighty five million dollars worldwide. We know the worldwide numbers don't count. Those people watch anything domestically though. It was also viewed as a commercial success. The movie struggle, but why do you guys have such divergent opinions? But on demolition man. You, you unite and you saw together one of the greatest films ever made. It brings a cross people from worlds apart, like thin. Hey, LeBron James, one of the greatest basketball players ever, like no one's going to argue that one. No. He's definitely one of. Yeah. I've been arguing against you guys put demolition man. I like it as a big stupid action movie. You guys put it at at in the hall of fame, and I do not. That's all a well, how is it that we watched it the other day, maybe about nine days ago? I know because I was tweeting about it, and not only was it great action, right? Great performances by Stallone, and Wesley Snipes. Right. Dutiful. And by the way, the reason why Dennis Rodman started dying his hair. But more than that, it was so forward, thinking the things that they saw on the future that we all laughed at us ridiculous. Many of them came through, like, Simon says die for instance, Arnold Schwarzenegger's political Esperance. Nail that one? They knew it. You didn't know it in ninety two or whenever that movie came out. They knew what they were wrong about the seashells yet I just anyway. So, like the clamp them together. How the guy doesn't to use the seashells. You haven't used this shelf guys. He's such a good. You use the CS. The rise of veganism. Demolition, man. Knew that was coming Taco Bell, winning the fast food chain wars, fancy taco bells though. Vanc- taco bells are real thing. We have to talk about resort. We got the Cantina taco bells at serve beer, liquor. Right. They knew it was coming. You laughed is Taco Bell won't even be around lounge singer, you know, who that lounge singer was Dan, one, Dan Cortes, who came away playing two different roles in that movie. Yeah. Yeah. We've actually done the segment before you guys feel this is. It felt familiar. Rejoin. The valley. It's a jolly green giant. He just saw the movie nine days ago though. And he was badgering me during the break saying to me you don't understand. Demolition man was a more of an oracle about what would happen in the future. Then back to the future was with some of the stuff that they did. In fact, put it on the pole Guillermo at lebatardshow, which of those two movies, foretells, the future, the better. Yeah. Demolition man or back to the future, the organized social shaming of people using language deemed offensive. Right. Like demolition, man. You'd Curson as you've been fined one credit right now. They will you sounded just like, wow, you are amazing. That is, you've only got two good impersonation of three D M X Obama. And right there that one, the voice of from the future in demolition, man. I've also been working on a very limited Alvin gentry which I've been thinking about unveiling today on highly questioned him and nobody's. To get that's limited. It's so limited that no one's going to get it. What kind of terrible ideas that caveman, let's finish with a rip van winkle? I got another limited fake from that movie. Caveman. Yeah. The word from Shasha. Let's finish with a rip van winkle. I want to hear this Alvin I know. Right. You're just teasing us. And we have to wait 'til HQ to hear it now. I want him now. Okay. Let's set this up, okay? Fine. Now, we're here because this is going to be terrible. Just give us one. The problem is, you gotta give me some Alvin gentry. I the audience doesn't know what Alvin gentry sounds line. So there's a tie in here, right? Because Alvin had a great quote over the weekend, where they asked him about the Anthony Davis trade, and how happy was what David Griffin was able to procure and Alvin says. Says oh, we like a lot of guys that's a whole folks calling back to the last game of the regular season. Where Anthony Davis showed up to the arena, wearing a t shirt that said, that's all folks. Right. So Alvin does call back and the audio is out there. You know if we can hear it, then I can do it. And now you have your a lot of work, though, that you're making us do for an extraordinarily limited impersonation. No one is asking for they want you understand that. No one now. But now we're in it. Now, we gotta go do this, and take it to its conclusion because there needs to be a payoff. I saved a random Alvin gentry cryp if you wanna do that play the random clip. All right. Just let's give the audience a taste of Alvin gentry to at least be able to set up this joke, that's going to take a lot of setting up and probably won't have the desired payoff. No. This is not the first time this has happened. It's not the first time he's happened in the last season. So it's not something that's brand new or unfamiliar to the league. And, and as I said, you know. We understand all of that. And we have to block that out Anita more animated Alvin. Oh, because I can't do quiet for the love. I do animated out. All right. Billy now, he hasn't destroyed the segment quite enough. Go ahead and find him his very specific sound. So that seven minutes from now, we could have a non payoff of an incredibly limited Alvin gentry, no one's asking for caveman. Let's finish with the rip van winkle and get moving. I'll miss a Phoenix has risen from the ashes track that back for two years. When I finally bring him down. You turn me. Tonight's q. I had coffee with my coli half an hour ago. The joke Amine is trying to set up. Do you guys realize how much we should just build it up? Till the end of the shows, we could get the pathetic payoff. That's going to be a mean as limited fake, Alvin gentry no one's asking for. You got three impersonations you given us the. You've given us Obama does. Right. And you've given us this voice from the future in demolition man, one petty. Mischief phoenix. You have anything to save yourself, a do teddy bear. I want them to do more, by the way, more dial. Okay. Okay. Wait a minute, though, because I gotta be honest, ROY sounded a bit more like Danny Glover. Predator. Two. No, I was thinking opposite rigs lethal weapon. The name friendly friendly, don't you have a job to do? Don't you have somebody to kill? There are some Hannibal lector at the end of that. I can do the warden from Shashank. I can't do who is the mayor of San Angeles. What was his name damn? You something. All. Put it on the poll Guillermo, what is the name of do? You know, the name of the mayor of San Angeles donlevatar dodgers, closer, kenley Jansen. I gotta be careful here. What I just did it. Let me start against God's sagas closer is the closer comes in ninth inning closes the game at his name his kenley Jansen. He is blamed his regent. This is on Libertad show with his two guys on ESPN radio. That is a mean L Hassen. We are grateful that he has spent this time with us today, replacing the irreplaceable stugatz, the US will play soccer here in fifteen minutes while we were on the air while we're on the air, and that rarely happens around here where we get a live sporting event that we can drape in obnoxious, patriotism. So we will have that over the last hour or any other kind. We are. Are we the country? Are we number one at that too obnoxious, patriotism? Yeah. When we got a good squad. We got a good squad like we do right now. Yeah. We always do though, the women's national team is always the, you know, bringing the, the, the good stuff to the table. We can always count on this squad. We're the best that obnoxious, patriotism, the best nobody's better. Yeah. Just ask call and cabinet. Whoa. Whoa, took a dark, turn and fish. I didn't mean it like that. Uh-huh. I wanted to ask you guys about what happened in a cardinals game. A cardinals game here physician. Billy, I thought of you the other day because when Jack Flaherty got picked off if you don't know this story. He's pinch running. He's at second base and he's pinch running, and he is a pitcher he should not. I mean and earlier in the week he had had he got thrown out by four hundred feet at home plate on a base running error. The reason I thought of you Billie is because I know you would suffer for this, dude. So this is what happens at the end of the Marlins game. The way the Marlins win is Sergio Romo turns around and picks this dude, who's pinch running for, you know, one of those cement footed Molina brothers. He's pinch running, and he gets picked off with as the tying run in extra innings in the bottom of the eleventh, and the game ends in Saint Louis, and people stream out of the ballpark, and the Marlins he still on his nanosecond base, which is like hard bass, correct. But he suffered it so much that he stayed on. Sneeze as the Marlins were shaking hands. And as the grounds crew came out he was still on his knees. I don't know how long he was out there. I felt so bad for him. An immediately thought of you Billy because seem like something that would have happened to you. It'll be never did such a good job where they kept cutting back to him like in their ballpark camera, whatever and he didn't seem to move like he was still like on one knee just kind of, like looking at the scoreboard looking off into this looking at who knows what, but they're working on the pitcher's mound behind them, like you see, golf parts driving. Mazing. It looked like it looks the Marlins were shaking in some of the pictures of this were amazing because he is at the height of suffering just this dude is just a loan as a ballpark as the people of Saint Louis stream out ashamed of him because you hit like, the and I was trying to think of give me a worse feeling than that, that, that someone can have then that one those combination of ingredients you are pinch running. You are somebody who's a pitcher. You're not a position player. Your only job in that situation is don't get picked off like if you can't end the game that way. And he knows it. And as soon as it happens all of Saint Louis, leave the ballpark, and he feels like a jerk and the photographs are amazing of the ground. Screw basically. This guy is at the height of his shame just sort of diligently working around him starvation, probably feels worse. Yeah. Losing your job, like lots of things worse. I met in sport, but JR Smith did in the final. That's a good one. No, no, no. Not state. He has to feel it, though. JR didn't seem to feel that he seemed like what? It's worse. Yes. You're right, Chris, it's worse, but it's because of the game, it's not because of the way the mistake fields, right? Like, because no mistake was, like okay in the finals. Sure that's what I'm saying but to lose a game because you thought the game was over, and we were up and instead you could have just laid it up. That's pretty bad for any game. It really feels like we haven't seen JR Smith since. Where is he the question? Where is JR Smith righteous never played for the Cavs this year? Right. They just had him on contract, and he's like I think I wanna get traded and they they're like, JR. We've been trying will that the funny thing now is that 'cause his contract is only very minimally guaranteed for next year. He is a trade piece for tina's trying to shave off a little bit. More salary a kicker missing a bunny, Cody parkey that had it feel pretty bad booth. Got nowhere. Ooh. Yeah. Kickers kickers. But that's that's that's the stakes were we're talking about, Cody parkey with about Norwood. That's not lie. You miss a kick him as a kid, you guys mentioning JR. Smith is something the physical mistakes are different than the mental mistakes, like, the, the physical mistakes, anybody can understand that human physical mistake. It's forgetting the score feels worse. Chris webber? Timeout about well, this is going to take a turn, but ninety four World Cup on goal. Oh. Oh, wow. Wow. Another turn put the dead fishing your own lap. I really that's what we're doing. That's what we're doing to Escobar's thirty for thirty on a check it out. On ESPN COPA. Really? See all the unbelievable in the Colombian portable you can not only not only can you watch the English feed, but a Portuguese feed on ESPN plus. Oh. Random. To dead fishes in a single segment. I have never seen. I've never seen two dead fishes in a single segment. Can we have three can we get through? I hear three. Does anyone here have a third where we can get into a segment? And then somebody can throw either Colin Kaepernick or, or the own goal, murdering that there was because of a Colombian goal anything worse than sports than a pitcher getting picked off at second. Not serve Asian mouse, at the palaces come bad. Yeah. My goldfish died this weekend. I'm sorry. You got a goldfish. Is it a lying? It's latch. Don't get out of me. Go walk and go back into the ocean. I'm just trying to help the bit. And, and so you through a debt an actual dead fish in. That will give us a third, Jim fish. Just get out of here. We needed that we needed the third dead fish to make an appearance at the end of the segment not right there with an actual mate of story about a dead fake. Come back. No leave just walk into the ocean. That's not what we needed that. I'm, I'm angry at both Mike and ROY for sucking the fun out of two segments. If Chris good he's gonna come back with an actual dead fish brought in from the ocean. What's worse starvation? Thank you. Billy Bill Buckner. Bill Buckner was bad, but he also recently. Yeah. Yeah. We can't do it in a first making here.

"This is the base of the donlevatar show with stugatz podcasts. So that was a stunner last night. But not. Because Clemson won the money in Vegas told you before that game when if went off at five and a half that the money didn't five and a half is not a giant upset. Now. It's the way they want and the way they want something that Nick Sabin has an experienced since he was the dolphin coach facing JP loss Mun. But that's right. He hasn't lost like that since he was coaching the dolphin. But the stunning part of it is and I know American joy laughing at Nick Sabin last night. Over the last couple of years. They didn't beat Auburn that way. They didn't BBC that way. They didn't b Louisville that way. They didn't Wake Forest that way comes into and beat Georgia Tech that way they didn't beat Syracuse that way and then didn't beat them at all. They didn't beat NC state that way they didn't beat us. You that way? We've not seen that since Nick Sabin has been at Alabama. Michael David Smith had the stat of Nick Saban at Alabama has played with fourteen points or more as the margin. I think it was one hundred six times he was one hundred six until last night. We just haven't seen that. And what I wanted to ask you guys about it is did anyone have it going that way? Did you hear anyone in all of the places that it was being talked about that this game was happening and the weeks leading up to it that people were doing predictions. I'm not talking about did people have Clemson winning, right? Did people? Have that happening? Anybody? Did you hear anybody have that happening? I didn't hear a single person say Clemson with blowout, Alabama. No. I heard plenty of people say Alabama will blow Clemson I heard some people say Clemson would beat Alabama. But no one said that would happen last night. I didn't hear it. No, I didn't either. And there's such an invincible aura around Nick Saban at Alabama that you think that just the magic of Nick Sabin is gonna prevent any of his team from being blown out in that manner. I it was it was amazing to watch and beyond that now the conversation shifts right because yesterday Stu gods, and I were talking and we were talking about how do you stop the Alabama juggernaut from being the John wooden teams the way you do it is by having to freshman do that to them last night in the system doesn't allow them to go be pros? Like the system keeps them there for two years. And so and you saw the. The post game speech. It didn't they didn't have a player just simply telling people to come to Clemson 'cause 'cause it's fun to play. Clemson. I mean, they they got something special there that entire D line could have been drafted high and they decided to come back to chase a championship college football playoff team the previous year. You don't see that? In today's game. They came back, and they blew out Alabama who was the boogeyman. And I guess how you how you stop the John wooden run from Alabama's you have another wouldn't team out there. And that's what Clemson is. Right. That's what Clemson as Mike. It was surprising though to see. It was surprising with all that said the Trevor Lawrence play that good in. That's that was amazing to watch. We did we did talk yesterday about the idea that that kid was a pro that I wasn't sure which quarterback in that game was better because I didn't know about his growth, we now know which one of those quarterbacks is better and has the bigger future because to a turn the ball over. That's not my joke that somebody else. Feeling that I'm stealing that from some what happened? What happened as tell the joke? It's a terrible. Joe's good. I like, oh, no. I don't like my allies. You know, what I'm going outside for two Cody agreed with something. I'm gonna go sit in the penalty box. I'm not so sure if he projects to be better, but he is six foot six to fifty Kirk herbstreit made the point like, can you imagine what this dude going to look like in two years not just on the field. But physically he's got such an incredible frame. And he was getting popped in the pocket, occasionally wouldn't go down. He was taking some shots. He was really impressive with how he would hang in the pocket something that you don't really see with freshmen, especially freshman going up against a mixed Eben thing I had to be clear with what Dan said earlier Lawrence. And who's the why is it Ross the white music with the freshman. It's two more years two more years and Clemson. Yeah. The system keeps them there for three seasons if you play them right away and Clemson had three guys who were suspended for last night's game. And they still beat them that badly, which is pretty amazing, but people writing off Nick Sabin today. It's ludicrous. They'd say it's done Dabo, the new Sabin cleanser the new Alabama now on both. The teams are going to be better next year. They have these quarterback. Yes. With another offseason of development another year of fish. Physical development because you seen just over the course of the season. How different Trevor Lawrence looks physically than he did when he was coming in and spot duty relief of Kelly Bryant, remember Lawrence's is the size of rob gronkowski's the same light, and maybe ten or twelve pounds lighter. But the thing about college too, though is that you know, when you're a top five recruit schools don't need to recruit, you you're so good that you recruit schools, and if it reaches a point where Clemson is the place to go just the way Alabama has been the place to go, then it's gonna metastasized, and it's only going to get easier for devils weenie, but hasn't Clemson Ben a place to go. I mean Ross the wide receiver for Fred he's from Alabama. And it got the best freshman quarterback in the country. I mean, it's been a place to go. I feel I for a few years. Now are we just figuring out today? The clemson's pretty good. Which is weird because I've been in the college football playoff four straight time. Right. They've beaten Alabama in a title game previously. Right. Trevor Lawrence is fifty pounds lighter than grunk. Yeah. When you said that. Wait a minute. Wait a minute. How much Trevor Lawrence way? Trevor Lawrence is six five to sixteen and gronk is six sixty sixty. All right. Then also might be he has he's growing the official burger uses not grow it. But he's not I was still growing. He's not close to growing. So wait. Let's still you get my point. But you see like football was trailing behind basketball. And this was about a decade and a half ago. A date on the second. We see the point. I mean, the point is Trevor Lawrence's really big the point is you couldn't sound any worse than you every way. Like, you're like, it's not bad enough that the that the points are wrapped in phlegm sickness and things that are distracting the show, but on top of that the point stinks, actually, the phlegm level has been pretty good. Dry. But the not Fleming by the point stakes will that point stunk. I worn Trevor Lawrence was I can't leave you alone for a minute here. I cannot leave you alone for one minute here before but you'll poop on the carpet. Yeah. This is incredibly unfair that Trevor Lawrence has to play this physical sport for two more seasons for no money at you saw a decade and a half ago. College basketball realize to get good. We gotta play these freshmen and not sit on the bench. We gotta play them right away. Because that's how we get the elite guys. And now the elite programs and football realize we'll get the best freshman in the country and they're gonna play right away. Otherwise, they're gonna leave us. Right. So now, they're doing that. But their rules are different. They have to say in the super physical sport. Because the NFL says physically you're not ready to handle this league for three seasons. You're gonna have a running back take SEC punishment for three seasons becomes in his eye cry that rule is so interesting to me because the two cartels working with each other pro football is protecting protecting its minor league. System, and they file it under all of it under. Well, those kids aren't big enough to play football. First of all, they're Zion Williamson's out there all over the place, but they file it all under health and protection. What is simply is preserved the free minor league system? And we're twenty years I think away from any discernible change because we'll look how long it took the NBA to say. Okay. One and done is twenty years. It'll never change as long as they pay people a million dollars to run that one bowl game year. Like that will never change those guys are going to keep getting that money. Well, it'll change with the advent of other leagues. Now the other leagues have to be successful. But competition would breed rule changes. You'd have to think if you have someone like a USFL saying, no, we'll pay you instead of going to college you come here than the NFL might start feeling the heat and half to change its rule look at how we're all talking about Trevor Lawrence today. I mean last night was pretty valuable for him. Like, everyone is gushing over him. Now, I mean value in that. Yeah. But the next two years, we'll also be pretty valuable to him. I'm assuming right like. Two more years of build up. I mean, he would be the number one draft pick if he entered this season. I don't you. There's something to an eighteen year old in nineteen year old and not being ready. I understand major league baseball, tennis hockey. I get all of it. But a nineteen year old is he ready to play in the NFL. I understand, but the NFL did change its rules to make it easier for someone of that frame at that position. If we can like the idea of this is somewhat ridiculous. Because are we really saying that any human body is equipped for the NFL like, let's think about that. When someone more quilt he's going to grow. That's right clowning. He's going to grow. He's going to grow physically. He's going to be a bigger player, and he might but the way the rules are in that league right now he can play he can play physically in that league. I don't know about reading defenses and all that stuff. But you just played in that that was I'll Bama he did that too. Donlevatar on the rig popping it up on the rake. Why were you doing that? How we talked who who's the we that we talked to young people like suing me slang O L, tell them, Greg. Stugatz. Look, Greg, Cody trying to get into the hipster conversation with an L O L. Right. I see why am I might just said L O L SMH VC's live at our show with two guys on ESPN radio. You guys have any opinions on what's going on with our Kelly. This is in this climate are Kelly for the last. I don't know fifteen years has been somebody who does things and you've heard a number of accusers. It's not one willing to put their name or face on this stuff. He has done some things that have been done deviant Lii in music. For a long time in terms of young women or underage women. And but his his situation when you're reading about an listening to it feels almost like head of a cult type of control trying to control an environment in in ways that are abusive, and my guess is illegal, but you need somebody to try him. You need somebody to be willing to have the the journalists are doing the reporting. The journalists are talking to the victims all over the place, and this has been something we've been talking about in some form or another for about a decade. Yeah. It's amazing. When contemporaries begin to publicly this sounds like chance the rapper did saying he regrets working with our Kelly. I found chance the rapper's comments fascinating. An unbelievably honest because one of the things he said is I didn't believe black women like they were black women and. I just didn't believe them because they were black women. I thought that honesty at by way of his apology. You were shocked to here. Yeah. I was I was surprised that the honesty that's not an easy admission to make. That's not an easy, man. How many people are voting this stuff? How many people don't wanna talk about our Kelly? How many people in that project, and we're going to try? There's one right here. Are we are speaking to dream Hampton producer on the project on this week Thursday going to be joining us, and he'll tell you how many people didn't wanna be associated. She excuse me. I'm sorry on is it I think so. Yeah. Yeah. Well, stands into the story. There's a. How is that a fine? I mean, I mean you soon someone's gender twenty nineteen. What was her name dream dream Hampton still still is William she'll be joining us. There's there to be fair if you rewind a little bit. I wasn't exactly sure. So I want with they'll be joining us. Oh, you weren't. Sure. But I know what year it is. But did you see quests love was quoted as saying, for example to one of the workers on the project? Hey, I'll do anything for you. But I can't do this. So there was some bravery and what it is the chance the rapper did. Absolutely. I'm this has been as you said it's been about fifteen years that the whispers, I mean, he married a lead shockingly young age we had innovate for our Kelly was set to join us, and I got wait. I got the creeps. And I said, no, we can't we can't do this. This was like five years ago. What did you get where they making like, I know this like the world's gotta come crashing down on this guy on maybe not this year. But soon, and I don't want someone waiting up us laughing at a joke that are Kelly cracked, you are still waiting for that, my friend. So speaking of laughing Cody parking misses that field goal. And this is the plague throughout sports Rex Ryan says I don't feel bad for Cody parkey at all students has made a living fifteen years of profit off of I don't feel bad for X. But somehow, someway, you guys were talking. During the break about feeling bad for Nick Sabin, which was amazing to me like somehow during the break you guys felt last night. Like, he aged in front of your eyes. He's damn near seventy. I believe he is. Yes, there were people who were who were actually during the game. And after the game making fun of Nick Sabin saying this is Nick Saban getting old right in front of our eyes. They felt bad for Nick Sabin. I had that feeling a couple of times. I must admit here's why I didn't have that feeling. I often have that feeling when America's laughing at someone often, but he's been on the right side of the left her for about a decade. Now be on the wrong side of the laughter. Once there were two moments for me. It's Chris Fowler telling you that Clemson is lined up to defend the fake field goal. And Chris Fowler sought everyone. Saw it. The only person who didn't see it was the guy you needed to see it who usually does see it and that was Nick Sabin. And then afterwards you had the coach of explaining to him. They Nick probably shouldn't have done that. They're right. That was moment. Number one. The other moment was fourteen thirteen minutes extra point and Nick was applauding on the sideline. Now. He was Terri. The kickers head all he did send them home on an airplane. He was applauding and encouraging. And that is not the Nick Sabin that I know he's finished. Okay there. It is what twelve hours after saying all of the opposite things is now pivoted. Here's another thing to make you question. Whether and we're reporting this exclusively is Nick Sabin fit to coach in the condition that he's in clearly he's delirious. I don't know if he's taking urban Meyer's medication. But we have not heard this. Right. Thank you. As always. I appreciate I know y'all think I don't like the press. But I really do love you for what you do to get a lot of positive self gratification or a lot of our players by recognizing the things that they do. Well, and we certainly appreciate all the interest. You create for our sport. In college football is a great game. And something that's great for these young people to be able to learn a lot of lessons in life. So we appreciate you so much for that. Thank you. It's over. Yeah. He's gone by. Someone should tell nicb the the press is unable to give self-gratification to a player. They have to do that on their own. But this to coaches, you're not allowed to feel sorry for Nick Sabin and Bill Belichick. That's it. You can feel sorry for any other coach in any sport. But not Popovich. I think you can feel sorry for him. It's been a while. Now, double G, Greg. I don't know while it's been a while. I'm so we were laughing about Cody parkey and Mike who was the announcer on this. What's his name because this is courtesy of LA mega one. Oh, five point seven FM in Philadelphia, Ricky Ricardo it's actually Ricky Ricardo on Twitter. And I just double check. I thought people were just being racist. No, his his actual name is Ricky Ricardo not be can't be the character from I love Lucy Lula's, a Cuban cliche of deshea. Look, chris. I'm not saying that that's the announcer. I'm saying that Ricky Ricardo can't be his real name is his real name. And this audio would come courtesy of LA mega one zero five point seven was names. Probably Riccardo Riccardo. If it's Ricky Ricardo, right? What I'm saying is his name can't be Riccardo Riccardo. We've got to get to the bottom of this regardless. Here's the call of the the field goal. That ended Chicago season and at the end of it, a mascot bear fellow ver crestfallen and broken but still smiling because the look on the faces always smiling. Cody parkey watertight today's out of this. That's not limited. Have you ever thought that? I'll say that. I'll say no fake. I go. I thought. Club sent yo. Sick. Net yet. On days. Oh. Now the cost. I don't know why he was singing Chicago that was probably something he had in his library of throw out there if they won in dramatic fashion, he used it. Anyway, have they lost in dramatic fashion? But I love I baba was it was it. Poppy Papa I wanna hear that. Again. I want to get the full the full brunt of it because that was sensual in nature. The I Papa. Cody parkey what water out of this?

I know that many of us are going to be killing Nick Sabin and laughing at Nick Sabin today. But basically. It's a half football one half of football that took out some of the things that we thought about Nick Sabin. It's not even a full game sample site. Furthermore, if to turn the ball over didn't throw the last pass of last season people would be calling for Nick savings job right now for losing two in a row. Are you not familiar with Alabama football works? Are you not familiar with? How those are all the people calling finebaum show if they lost the Kirby smart, and then Daboh oh forget, Dan is dead on with this, man. They be calling for Nick Sabin. It'd be game passed him by. It'd be all that stuff in Alabama. It's one of the reasons that Nick Sabin every once in a while, you think you might be going to Texas or something because of how small Alabama is do you think Nick Sabin can go outside in Alabama. Go go outside like can can Nick Sabin do his own groceries in Alabama. I kill now. He owned half of Alabama. So that's like uninhabited land. And he can go outside there. Do you think you want to do his groceries? I'm just saying convicts save and do anything normal in public in Alabama without people without an onslaught of people because it's not just normal people. It's alabama. It's the fans in Alabama. Like, he is the the deal with the devil. Is this you'll get to win everything? But every day when you go outside some two hundred seventy pound pink person is gonna bounce against until you what you need to do on your defensive line. I think Nick on of enjoys that. I think he likes that. I think he does do normal things if I remember reading stuff like I think he likes to go to the grocery store. He likes to go with his wife is a coupon guy. Everyday guy old school coupons. Oh, he's cutting them out with scissors. He's and he's arguing with the cashier. If they don't give him what he wants. He's crushing Bogo to. Oh, my God stocking up to two hundred and seventy pun pink guy. I think of Alabama people as being sunbird, no. Pink works. Really yet. Two minutes. Get out of your. Billions feuding. Thank means. You get no son. Billy is pig is when you get out of tan, I don't need more commentary from you on this subject. The initial incompetence was enough. Okay. Billy is few Billy is feuding with clearance. Again. As is often the case he's been hunting down. Andrew luck curse words. That's what he's been doing recently. A Billy that thing. I saw yesterday of Andrew lock us saying curse accidentally and then being super disappointed with himself like it. It was amazing to see Andrew luxury action of saying the word, you know, the expletive for feces realizing set it on television. And then just shame swept across and like, he disappointed his parents Manley, his mother, and like he spent a minute just sort of just sort of wallowing recruiting. Yeah. How how bad that fellas? You trying to pull it back. Did he get the whole word out? Now, he now he said, I'm sorry apologized. And then he drifted off with a faraway looking his eyes to contemplate how bad he felt upon further research. It seems like that may have not even been on television. Like, I think that was an. Internet exclusive like colts interview. So while it's not the best. It's not really that big of an issue that he cursed, but he was disappointed in himself. He was in a whizzes luck. Didn't raise him saying. It was obvious on his face his level of disappointment with himself for saying interrupted the guys next question. Like, wait before you go on. I'm sorry about that. Like what I just did. Please forgive me. He injured lug is never going to have a real controversy in his life. He's to square. Did. You see him at a concert like jamming to back down. It was at one back down maybe the song, but he was jamming at a concert, by the way. We're never going to get that cleared either. Just so, you know, why feuding with Clarence what's happening? You didn't want me to mention that were feuding with clearance. But we're now we're feuding with clear. Well, the problem with feuding with clearance as if they know that we're feuding with clearance than we're never gonna get anything clear. So I don't think it's good to publicize, but it's very difficult to get things clear. There's very specific rules, which I understand because they don't wanna ruin relationship with the Colt. So like that for example, was a clip that the colts may or may not have deleted from the internet that someone save, and I went back to two thousand twelve looking for this and it confined it. So they don't wanna burn that bridge. Your of the belief that the Indianapolis Colts grubbed out a curse word of Andrew locks because they don't want that stain on their resume when they've got an owner was caught with pills and cash and his car. All I'm saying is this a lot of investigating went into that clip. So the longer clips said that it was after a buy week. So I started going back five years and seeing when they won a game before a BI week because. We're coming off a big win. This is your investigative report. This is you being that pharaoh kid that is winning all the awards for as metoo coverage. This is what you're doing with your life hunting down Andrew lucked sound unsuccessfully. Well, it I'd say it's less important what I'm doing than him. But so I went back five years to find out when did they win. When was a big win before a by. And then I went to their Facebook because I figured out. That's where that background is. And I'm looking for him wearing the same shirt talking and same interview because they changed interviewers Dan from year to year. So I found the guy I couldn't find the shirt. And then I said, hey, wait a minute. I don't see this like November eighth two thousand sixteen where did it go on an hour went? I don't know. But I haven't given up on this digging. We need to conduct an investigation. I want you to break that story. Tell you become the new Schefter. Okay. Schefter is getting up there in years. You can't break every story. Here's where you come in and take some of his stuff. I want more injury luck in our lives. Do we have any Andrew luck sound that we can play Tom? Brady's gotta go through either. Andrew lock Philip rivers or Mahomes to get to the Super Bowl. Again. I do not believe he will do it. You shouldn't listen to me. I am wrong on all things you said he was finished a decade show. Yes. I did the same thing about R Kelly. Core. Transition time for so mats. Are you rooting for Andrew luck? You want him to stick around? Right. Just for. I'm most game say I am rooting for Philip rivers and Mahomes. Okay. Okay. The not luck that I don't wanna see the colts anymore. And I say that knowing that the colts have a very legitimate chance to make Andy Reid look postseason stupid again because of the specific advantages that they have in that game. Basically just running the ball like the way to beat them. If I tell you how do you beat Kansas City off a bye home game most explosive offense probably in the league. How do you beat them off? A by the answer is at home, the answers haven't been cold have the conditions. Do something to the throwing game. And have it be a five yards carry average from your defensive line running up against a team that in the last ten weeks as mall everybody along the front including that Texans defense this weekend that didn't allow anybody here like this. These are the ingredients you need for luck to advance. But man, I do not wanna see luck playing New England again. I don't wanna see it. So cold, weather and more than MAC if all it helped get help. I. What's the spread in that game? Is that the same spread as Clemson Alabama last night? Tell you would you be stunned if the colts due to the chiefs because the chiefs cannot play defense five and a half, it's the same spread. Yeah. It's the same spread Vegas telling ya five five and a half. Even mean, anything in the NFL. I it means it for bedding. But in terms of an upset Stu gods? If a team is a five and a half point underdog how much of an upset is it actually when that team win. Not a big upset at all. Because you usually get three points for being at home. If you're the better team with the better record. So no, not a big upset at basically, basically, given the common advantages. The chiefs are getting two and a half points above the standard that ain't much. If the colts upset the chiefs is it safe to say, they got the right guy. See yourself to the penalty. Donlevatar? You want me to get real? Stugatz. I'll get real VC's live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. I feel like Allison has arrived in a place where she hates the poll questions because she has to go back and forth, and check them and make sure there aren't any mistakes, she's neurotic. I love the poll question to you. Okay. Then put this one on there, would you mind because this is from a Twitter, and I want it. They're just like this Sabin doesn't need to do groceries because of the human save and no longer exists. He had a heart attack and died on the sidelines some time ago Bama just took his skin and stretched it across a preprogrammed robot. That is always angry when it's smiles it's malfunctioning. Yes, or no. I take me. Word. Hose stressful. So rising Lee stressful because you're a writer, and we're writing these on your behalf, and I'm always worried about looking literate because there's very simple things that I don't know how to do anymore because computers and phones have made it very simple, for example. I'm not sure how to spell laser. I don't know. How to spell laser? It seems like a simple word that you would learn in like third or fourth grade. I'm not sure if it's Z or an S is there an e or an, oh, I'm not sure it's Z. Oh. How did you discover that you did not know how to spell laser? What were you? What were you talking about will lasers, obviously, I was writing you're talking about lasers at a certain point. I was going to text someone about lasers, maybe laser technology. If I were to think it probably had to do with some sort of medical tests, not Bill laser, no, maybe like the diseases that I could get as a result of being exposed to lasers. And then I didn't know how to spell it. And it was really embarrassing. It happens to be a lot. But lasers like the most recent one that I can remember Alison Greg Cote is back in my day is going to be in fifteen minutes. But Alison, I'd like you to explain something me as someone loves Billie and finds him as funny as we all do why can he be in flashes? That competent where he just hits me with a lasers obviously that quickly and he can't make a life decision of any kind without it being soiled in fear. I mean, I hate him. And I adore him at the same time. He's so where so irritating. But yet sometimes he. Throws some of those which are funny, and they'll hit you like all three seconds laugh at that. Because when I guess him doing with lasers. He's like lasers. Obviously, I still don't notice, but leases, by the way, this hasn't been entirely helpful. How do you spell laser? It's L A S E R U. Give words not as spell or things. You've forgotten. How to do not you your smile? The answer is no Billy. There are no words. I don't know how to spell that question. I know how to spell them all any language any lane. Did he really just? And just I know what every word means. And how it spelled it's weird. But it's a great talent in mind. I'm surprised we're just discovering it now, I've never misspelled anything. Can can you guys? Give me some information before I start talking about this about whether or not ESPN is doing some advertising for luxury cruises to Cuba because I'd like to I I haven't looked it up. But some people have been writing to me saying, how do you feel about this? And you know, we've talked about Cuba a lot on the show. My parents are exiles everything. That's you know, that we do around here. Creatively is born of the freedom. They came to get in this country. And a lot of stuff about Cuba's hugely heartbreaking, including people are still going back today. And it's still a disaster in that money that comes from normalized relations. You know, they're stuck in the fifties. It's still dilapidated every time somebody comes back from Cuban. I talked to them they're just profoundly sad. Because what they remember, isn't what's there anymore. And so maybe over time American money pouring into their will help the people, but the fear of Miami Cubans is that they will never be helped that the money that is being shared by normalized relations will never actually go to the people. Do you believe there'll be a time? Like, I don't know. I don't believe much of anything that comes off that island much of anything like it's a it's a propaganda machine. In the only thing I believe is word of mouth from people who have been there. And it's a big issue in Miami. Where the show is based obviously because the owner of the Miami Heat is doing a cruise ship. Company, but I can't quibble with if relations are normal normalized people grabbing money from it. I mean, we sit here and take money from draft kings and things that are gambling entities. Advertising. Carries this stuff and I can object to it. It can hit me wrong emotionally, but I can't construct a rational argument for why it is that. We shouldn't advertise. In a time when revenue is going down on advertising time when media all media's fighting over the advertising dollar, and you've got people all over the place in new media fighting for the advertising, I think people would say if you get to take those dollars make sure just make sure the money's going to the right places in Cuba. But he SPN can't control that I know. But that's not. Yes, you're right. They're pant can't control anything except to not take money from people. They don't want money from which is something that we would do an instances. But why would we do it on this one? I mean, we flew over there with Obama to broadcast nationally, a a baseball game, and this company like most companies is searching for extra oil wells wherever it is that they can be found. That's why everybody in sports is running on. Understand. But that that. I wasn't even dangerous wonder what happened. What happened is the magic creative content. Started playing music that that that that any water can be dangerous. And what's? You're right about that about it. Any water can be dangerous. Never drown abet up. What does that have to do with anything? You are only contributions today are what are related you earlier in the show wondered why calling Joe flacco washed was a bad thing given that when you are washed you feel good about your house set Trevor Lawrence's negative looking. So here it is from the crate of the magical crate of content minutes. What's your all time favorite movie? And how many times have you seen it? That's a difficult question for me. It isn't everybody knows me knows answer swing vote wizard Avaz baby. What about thirty times the worst movie in the wizard of vise horrible movie, I'm like traumatized by that movie? I mean, how many times have you watched the Greg at least thirty ones the last time. You watched it probably within a year. Does it always end the same? It does doesn't every movie ever watch the godfather indifferently, wait. I wanna hear Allison's issue this movie, we devise a hater, it's creepy. The whole of the music whole thing is creepy. Like never know. They're off to see the wizard the wonderful vas a wicked witch much can. Monkeys everything about it is great. I don't believe Greg is seen this movie in like fifteen years. He says. The year. He's thirty times last time. He saw it was with within a year this two movies. I watched every single year without fail wizard of Oz in it's wonderful life and Souso in the pedals. I mean, it's just those movies man, never seen the it's a wonderful life. Greg. What's you not that? Now, I I have no desire. You wonder why have you seen die hard, and you've seen a wonderful life to the day hard party five now, then let's last six diehard, but how haven't you seen it? It's a classic every Christmas you need to watch it. Everything's giving after the parade. I don't to come on. Alison why? Greg Cody be Brady Ol-. We've got a Greg Cody back in my day to get to in this segment if he can tough it out through the. Assortment of things that AOL him. He's gonna try to tough his way through hang tough during a back in my day. But before he does that there were things he wanted to say about Cuba, and the conversation we were having before he realized that all we were doing there is trying to distract him with serious subject matter and a magical box. So that we could get him on the hard network. Yeah. No, I get that. Subject. I know the subject you were talking about the is fascinating to me. Because of where I live only only in Miami. And south Florida is this a controversial subject. Yes, mike. He sounds worse. And he's going to feel self conscious about sounding hot tougher quick minute. And you sound twice as dead right in hot a what better way than to make me feel less self conscious than the constantly bring up my voice, but in all seriousness. I was going to mention that my wife, and I had a conversation recently right said to her, hey, do you have any interest in visiting crew Cuba on a cruise because obviously I've never been. And it's it interests me on some level. And her first reaction was because we love the lead card family, her first reaction was will how would Dan's mother field. Honestly, wasn't fixed that voice. I mean, hopefully, but she would set fired everyone in your family, right? And that was honestly that was her reaction. And would that prevent me from going probably know you. Go should absolute. I don't wanna go that badly. That's why through it. My wife. Hey, you have an interest in going you should go. And the only reason I think you guys might remember this if you've been listening, but baseball and ESPN and everyone got in bed together after relations the government signed off on it normalized relations and ESPN went there as part of a, you know campaign, and I was invited and my family was invited. And I'm guessing that had at least in part to do with providing some political cover because we have no reason to be there. Otherwise, I was good with going. My father was good with going. My mother was not good with going. And so we did not go. It had to be it had to be all of us that ended the conversation right away. All of us are none of us. She was not returning the coals of the president of the company. Well. Now is there any discussion about you? And poppy just going or was it all the lebatardshow going? None lifetime ago. Why would we do that to my mother like we can't we if she's that adamant about it? Like what why what we're just going to go on a trip or you're not familiar with how family works without had family works. You invite one you invite him. All listen. I know I know I invited one of them. And none of them showed up to my daughter's mitzvah, Baja I'm not holding any sort of resentment towards that. Because Dan, I mean, the buyout clause. Was you mangas and Dan match the buyout clause? He got out of it for free. I listen, I wasn't for free. It was not for free. It was the opposite of for free. It worked out well for everyone. Let's just put it that way. It really did. I couldn't believe when I saw your young teenagers on a yacht that they own the girls to love Yale. So Mike Baker Mayfield continues to be fined for unfurling his loins. I've aleve. I heard it described. I didn't even see the player. I don't know what it is. I love the Baker Mayfield personality at quarterback of everybody. Go bleep yourself really from three weeks ago. I love that. He did that Andy was trying to be sly about it because he did it on the sideline and try to get some cover. And I knew exactly what he was doing because you know, younger, and it was amazing. So cool having a quarterback. That's this and good that that's important because I had a quarterback vets young, right? Staredown is that what you're talking about? It's it's one thing because I was all in on the quarterback that was this and bad, but to have one that I mean, look what he did. I know it ended with an interception. Incredible play put to do that to that defense which showed against Philip rivers multiple times, they're so legit to put up two hundred and fifty additional yards. What they were used to on the road kid dynamite. How about this one? He's got the goods, dude. Yeah. How about this one? Josh mcdaniels. Seems to have had the choice between being the air with the patriots and going to the Browns. And I'm legitimately telling you, I think the Browns is the better job, the I know it sounds for dick euless, right? But if when Tom Brady retires is that still if Tom Brady Bella checker out is that still is that still job with a lot of young player talent. Like the Browns have like if you if I put both those rosters in front of you the Browns right without Tom Brady with if I take Tom Tom Brady out of the equation, Dan, EV gimme Brady for another two or three years. I'm still taking Baker Mayfield for the next fifteen to twenty years to hell wants to follow that. I'm not chain a challenging like, oh, I'll setup to the challenge. It's just Andrew luck following Peyton Manning and Iraj IRS following. These are outliers doesn't really happen. And I know it happened once with hadn't Tom Brady behind Drew Bledsoe. But that's really hard to do. The all-time goat quarterback. Retiring set your franchise back, and you could be fired. You're. To answer for it within three years because people aren't gonna have the patients in those type of towns. There's what is there seventeen years difference between the two quarterbacks? That's that's incredible. And for the first time we're seeing signs of erosion by Brady. I mean, he he had a pretty good season. He made the Pro Bowl again. I'm not sure if he should've but Brady's not the same quarterback. He was a few years ago. I'm not even so much. Sure. It's signs of a Rosen. It's just comparison shopping. They're all these young dynamic quarterbacks. And now they're multiple quarterbacks that I would say I want him over Tom Brady, and we're not to have that conversation. It's such an interesting thing because aging it's really hard to do in sports. When a guy is wearing the uniform of always seen him wear rare is the time where you can see the athleticism go from what Dwayne Wade's was to what it presently is. But when you measured Tom Brady played against the dolphins HOGAN was open in the middle of the field for an easy touch. And I was just blown coverage. And he threw the ball ten. Feet over his head. And this does not mean that he is no longer good. It means that that happens more often than it ever has that. Right. There is is something that happens with age. But yet they still scored a bunch in that game and did just fine. He's a home game away from making it to the AFC championship game in which will likely have to face rookie co or quarterback in his second year. And I think everyone would have more confidence in the patriots Brady winning that game. He's selling back at a super. I don't trust them this year to win a road game. I do not trust that team to win a road game against Andy Rae. Anybody like against anybody remaining in these playoffs. Nobody's been weaker going on the road this year man, look at what the times did to the patriot. And you're also saying against Andy Reid. He barely squeak by Blake Bortles last year. He fell at the feet, even though he played very well against Nick foles. He's filling out San is standing quarterback. But he's not as good as it used to be. And that's not all that's less. Less me that's age. It's just age. It's gotta happen. Eventually they might not have to play a road game though. I mean, what if they can Andrew luck at home, you know, really rare when he steps on a field even at this age where he's not the best quarterback on the field. And it may be happening against Los Angeles Philip rivers, and it's definitely going to happen against Kansas City with Patrick Mahomes and might possibly be having with Andrew luck. Well, I'm judging Brady against himself not against others in what I see is that drew Brees year younger is as close to as good as ever than Tom Brady is that can't be disputed, right because ju- breeze. Feels like he's mastered. The positions isn't over likely MVP this year. So I mean, I don't know football so confusing. I don't know is Brady on the decline the offense, and align his football confusing. Or is is Brady like this is Brady is unprecedented. In terms of the way, he's aging. I'm not talking. About in football. I'm talking about in human life. The way that he ages is not the normal way that anyone I've just wondering. 'cause gronk spin banged up. Adamant hasn't been there all season. I just I don't know. I'm not I'm not certainly not gonna write him all, but that's part of it. He's lesser the last couple of years. He's been a lesser quarterback. Whenever gronk doesn't play. And you've seen recently every time gronk runs a button hook. He loses. Another lug nut. It's it. It just it goes across the field and hit somebody. I mean, they're explanations for everything one of them came be he's getting older, and he might not be as good, but he's still terrific. But SU I'm surprised you have owned the hot take Tom Brady's a fourth best quarterback still alive in the AFC. And that's what you do. I don't want to own that. Because I think he's still the best quarterback of the AFC. And I think he will be ten years. I take the patriots job. Now donlevatar. I love me. Some doctors have a lot of respect for the medical profession. Stugatz. Except chiropractors. These live at our show with this Stu gods on ESPN radio ESPN, just. Sent out some tabulations that were a bit overwhelming for our show about what the numbers are for our podcasts over the last year was ninety one million something something crazy like that. And so because of that ESPN is allowing us the room to do some different stuff, and we are going to do it over the last over the next six months to a year would just trickling out now, and we need you to support south beach sessions in order to convince to guts to create his own world. If you do not subscribe rate and review to foul up their entire rating system, which is the only way I can explain that we got to ninety one million because we've already fouled it up. If you want to gots to do this. The only way to persuade him is to rate. Subscribe and review. We're gonna get to Cody back in my day in a second. Mike Ryan was pointing out that the coveted cliff Kingsbury who we all like around here, we all like talking to them and everything else, but on top of being thirty five and forty Texas Tech. He didn't do a whole lot with Mahomes and Mayfield like when he had them. Like, it's not like he was running sports with them. But have you seen that face? I know, and and there's these kinds of stories of the stuff that he likes to do that makes them fun. What's the craziest thing you've done in an effort to have a good practice? We were at university Houston, we brought an ice cream shot, but we filled it with with some girls from like one of the clubs the bottle girls. And that that was impressive. That was a good practice. What do you feel? I. The bottle service. You know? I so badly. What that guy on my side? I mean just wants think he doesn't want. He just wants names and sort of possess or I just want looks. If we're going to be this bad and embarrassing can my head coach at least be that good looking. That's all asking for looking man. Admit I mean testing I wanna give you guys before we get to back in my day. Just a little insight into the marvelous monster that is to God's and he knows more about himself than you guys thinking knows about himself because we were talking to the break of what a nice job billion Chris did yesterday and remembering our late friends super, Dave Osborne. Bob, Einstein and mean, gene, Oakland and stugotz was talking about how hard those things are to do when when Stu gods was a radio producer. This is exactly how he said it to me just like this during the break. I those things are very hard. I was never very good at them because you know, feelings. Touch. But I was great at the season ending highlight. Montale forget it. For the championship. The ninety seven more wins. Montage. I've put together still the great. Is there radio zone you and nearly surpassed by the oath three Marlins World Series, which was almost as good. But nothing nothing better than ninety seven. I had it all every time. Now for Greg cody's back in my day. If he could tough his way through it covered in phlegm and incompetent. It is time to take them mineral. Here's your guy. Rick could he with back in my day? Dating sites. Wait a minute. Too. Can't do that two minutes. We are you hold on. Let's start over Mike. We got on. Let's both leave because we gotta hope that that's not contagious because I just saw the four horsemen of the apocalypse trample everyone in the studio. Now, we do it. Again, he stunned to take a treat them memory lane. Here's your guy Rick could he with back in my day. Dating sites. It's a new year in. All right, Laurie. Hold on. Let's start over again. Mike. Let's start over hold on. Hold on. It. Can't keep getting worse. Mike. It can't be a can. All right. Let's start over and let's not making lap. Because when we make this is what happens when we make him laugh. I don't think he's ready to do this now to take them memory lane. Here's your guy Greg could he with back in my day? Dating sites. Wait a minute. Did that the same way that Stephen a Smith tried to get through the name of to turn the ball over? It's a new year. He tried to speed through it. I did dating site. It's a new year and you find yourself on tach and a bit lonely. So what to do what to do you could go school like centuries of generations before you you could rely on friends or relatives to set you up maybe on a blind date? You could actually buck up the courage leave the house and go, socialize try to meet somebody in a supermarket or an bowling league or over drinks at a bar. Then again, all of that requires a modicum of effort on your part, and in addition to being unattached and a bit lonely. You're also lazy? What now easy like shopper? Who'd rather have Amazon delivered to the door rather than venture into an actual store and fraternised with actual people. You stay bunkered in your home, go to your laptop or smartphone and join a dating site. Sure. Membership fees can be involved. Sure. The person you seem to have the most in common with says he's a surgeon, but mostly operates on small animals MA's basement. The point is. It's convenient anybody else there. See the irony, and you longing to be more social but doing so by the inherently antisocial platform of the internet. There's a million dating websites out there. Some get very specific Christian mingle. For example. I saw on TV at the other day for one. I'd not heard of before farmers only dot com. I'm serious farmers. Only isn't that too broad. I mean, what if I were to meet a peanut farmer in my inboxes and unday with cattle. Farmers. Inspired by farmers only dot com. I just started a dating website called aging sports columnist dot com. The last time I checked the only members were myself and Bob Ryan, his introductory video was him regaling perspective date. We're gonna passion. Take on white Bobby ORR meant so much to Boston sports, my videos that continues loop of me saying you never know wait membership just doubled competition getting fierce Kornheiser and Woody page to signed up. This thing is taken off. Maybe folks with the internet. Do you work for you could being a slave shortcuts? Do it old school go to a club one hundred forty bucks on drinks? And then walk out for later alone pit stained humiliated but fake solace. There's always aging sports columnists dot com. I'm Greg Cody. And that's how it was back in my day. I met my wife online, Greg. Donlevatar three acres is the place to be. Is a life for me to guts. I just enjoy paying house view. Just bailed. These are show with this two guys on ESPN radio. Gamma what are you laughing about back there? What is it that? You're you are snickering back there in a way, you're always up to something devious. You're an instigator. What do you want to instigate now? So yesterday, I guess it was the big lead unveiled like this top seventy five most powerful people in media. And and you were on list, I think at seventeen or something like that you split it with Colin cowherd, which I don't know why they couldn't pick one dollars. Take us side. Big lead come on, and Stu gods was mentioned in there. And then aarc ride home who produces all these shows head of you had fifteen and Lorenzo was mentioned in his blurb. So Lorenzo is mentioned as much as two God's as one of the most powerful people in media. He's going to be run into the added ain't gonna be whoa. Came is going to be God's tramples the entire mainstream to the top of ESPN and planning plant his flag of ignorance at the very top of. I'm so into the Scots movement. I was scrolling through that list. And I got into the top ten and we're talking about like the head of corporate like all the major networks in sports. I'm like we're gonna get I'm gonna get the stugatz. Like, I thought they were gonna have him like in like the tie same. Yeah. I mean, who cares about that? Honestly. I'm dead serious. I'm not deeply no hold on. I just mean, I didn't mean it that way. I didn't mean that you shouldn't care about that. I'm saying that when you sit down to write that article who are you writing it four is it just us who cares about that? It's me and Colin. Jim Rome at lebatardshow. It was Rome, by the way the list because there was John. Jim Rome was probably a one. Jim Rome is not on there. Not on. Jim Rome made more per year than any athlete when he was they did it weird. They did it was seventy five people named but it was in a rank of forty so like from forty to one but some had to like you were in the Santo. I ended up in bed with coward. You guys number eighteen it was like you and coward eighteen or something like that. Was well Cain on it. I don't believe. So a lot of ESPN people. But now, okay. Oh, can you have seventy five and then only forty no it's forty and there are a lot of ties. Oh my God. When a cop out. At lebatardshow on Mike. It's all petering out on Cody like, he's just I mean life where am I seventy six really you're looking for your play this criminal are there? Any newspaper columnists on the list criminal? Did you just put a criminal with your gee whiz from a Q? I don't know about columnists. They did have Howard Katz. Who's just the guy who makes the NFL schedule. He was number twenty Kornheiser on their Heiser wilbon were high. They still call them this asking seriously. I don't know. No number sixteen is Peyton Manning. Kobe Bryant and Alex Rodriguez. How is that fair? Can you guys figure out the man's behind them in that that that represents one? How are they grouped together? What is this? It's bogus is what it is. Can you guys find from the origins of criminal? I just want to find out just how old Greg Cody is reminiscent criminal. I just like to know the origins of it at lebatardshow, Stu gods. Let's update the polls from both today and yesterday. See what kind of show we had yesterday. All right. Did you know that Christian bale is British? Fifty three percent of the audience said, no Allison and Mike were real judgy about me not knowing that he was British real judgy. I am British. I know of health the first known use criminally sixteen eighty one. What is it? Here's before Greg was bored. I know criminal is an expression of sort of like, I can't believe it. But I'm like, where's that coming from on always coming yet? But it's the definition is used as a mound oath or to express surprise Gruny at lebatardshow is Tony Romo who will be broadcasting the Super Bowl rooting for Dak Prescott to lose the Super Bowl. If he gets there, of course, eighty four percent of the audience said, yes. Is Brian Duncombe leaving American idol the dumbest move in the history of show business. Eighty one percent of the audience said, yes, what in the Sam hill? Do you want football to have more celebrations that are sexual in nature? Sixty seven percent of the audience said, yes, if Los Angeles wins the Super Bowl will anyone show up for the parade. Eighty six percent of the audience said, no. How why? Seventy six percent of the audience said, yes, I agree with that. I gotta scrawled at today is going to be a second air. To turn the ball over funnier. Not funny. I gotta tell you was not received well on this radio show by the people who work on this radio show. But then I meet seventy four percent of the audience thought, it was fun. It's not my line. I was stealing it from somebody on the internet. Zoe good joke. Do you know what microfiche is Gaza's never happened before why it's never happened before? Why are you happy as a clam? I was going to pitch to my dad. Living out on the. Take your father with having some irc adjoin wild. Tamargo Troy, great one. You can't do better than that. Anyway, never happened before fifty percent of the audience. They've heard of it fifty percent of the audience has not heard of it. I don't believe you think you're lying. It's type. Let's just move on. Okay. Gaunt's? Save in doesn't need to groceries because the union save in no longer exists. He had a heart attack dot on the sideline sometime ago. Bama just took his skin and stretch it across state pre-programme robot. That is always angry when it smiles it's malfunctioning as I live and breathe. Ninety two percent of the audience said, yes. Is to the king of all critics. Eighty three percent of the audience said, yes, those are the polls Stu gods during the break was making a prediction, Mike he was saying that what's going to happen to the patriots is three years after three or two years after two more Super Bowls Brady and Bella check are going to leave together. The patriots are going to go one in fifteen somehow. I don't know if the mathworks and they're going to get Trevor Lawrence. Yep. Book it. Mcdaniels will be there to coach him somehow because the patriots futures and interesting thing like they're going into this post-season. And I don't think many people are making them the favourite. There's the smallest betting favourite of the four whom teams this weekend real. But how about just to win the Super Bowl, right, Mike? If we were right now going on in Vegas where are the patriots winning the Super Bowl because I don't believe anyone trust them to go. And when a road game were you saying that their fourth among all the teams or were you saying among this weekend? They are the smallest betting favourite among the four favorites this weekend. Both they're also fourth the two bidding favorites are both the NFC teams. Correct. I think Greg saying of the home teams of the favorite teams, but the patriots do have the most difficult opponent. They're getting the chargers. True. Get a factor that it right? But but when was the last time the patriots worthy? Smallest favorite in this round. I can't remember it. Yeah. They had the fourth best odds and they're behind the Rams chiefs and saints. I don't. I don't think what I'm about to say is wrong. That they may be abetting underdog against all of those teams that Mike mentioned if they were to face any of them. And yet if that game were happening that day you had to place a bet on huff winning. Do you bet against the patriots? Kidding me out because I want any of those teams, but I would for the last five years. I would have done it. And I've been I would have been wrong a lot like I this this patriots team. Okay. Feels to me weaker than any we've seen in a while. And I know I'm grading on a curve, but they went with this kind of record when they had met castle at quarterback, which suggests that they had a lot of talent outside of the quarterback position. Because of what you just said, I've you this as a gambling opportunity getting the patriots that low at home minus four over the chargers. Are you kidding me? There's no way San Diego wins that game. Well, 'cause it's Angeles. The thing that really jumps out when watching. You know, this is the lack of speed noticed that trick. I'm doing a little tricky doing that. But the patriots overall they seem very slow when you watch him and teams like the Rams and the chiefs like things seem slow. You can see because element doesn't look slow to me. Just Gordon look slow to me looks at defense. Especially really slow was rob gronkowski's falling off the pace of the earth. He looks tremendously slow the idea of you mocking someone for their deterioration out. I mean, honestly, this voice. You can listen to the donlevatar show with stugatz. Thank to one eastern on ESPN radio on you can wash on ESPN news.

REShow: Andrew Whitworth and Rece Davis. Hour 2 (01-07-19)

"Orig- is on demand. Your show your schedule. Fifteen minutes after ball dot com. Check out the casts at richeisenshow dot com. All right, everybody. Welcome to our number. Two of the richeisenshow were live on the air AT and T studios. Our poll question simple, which team is defending home turf in the divisional round after watching three teams failed to defend home turf. This weekend in the wildcard round, which one is in the most trouble eight four four two four rich is the number to dial. And we were taking your phone calls. And when you call in just be gentle atom are Callscreener diehard bears fan, and he's taking it hard. Yeah. He kind of gave me this look prior to the show. And I'm, you know, I didn't I'll be honest atom. I didn't know how to handle it. I didn't know how to getting ready for the program. And I do I go over and give them a hog. Do I go do? I I mean, what do I say? Just like. Yeah. I know I know the feeling eating breakfast. He's really serious where that's yeah. That's fasting until they make a kick. I mean, he's said. Thing is on Friday. He was preparing himself for this. He was very uneasy on Friday when we love. Four touch is going in the fourth quarter for three comb what's up with that? That blake. I. The collar was a little tight on maddening. Visor me, you know, it's it's kind of difficult to say that sort of thing in the same way that it's tough to take all of the, you know, stuff I see on Twitter sent my way when I pick a game, and I don't pick correctly. Kurt Warner got that from somebody took a screen grab of everybody. But MAURICE Jones, drew our first our guests choosing the bears. How how far how far off are we when the balls on the toe of the placekicker at the end of the game right from forty three yards out. He makes it iced doesn't make it. Second time. And then, you know, so here coming eagles going to New Orleans and our poll questions currently being led by the patriots. Because a lot of people think Philip rivers is come the calls are gonna come from within the Foxborough house for Brady in the form of Philip rivers and the so-called most complete team. But Nick foles taken that eagles team with full of belief hope and destined feeling going to New Orleans and there's a Cowboys coming here to Los Angeles in gentleman who's going to have to be dealing with that hot, boys. Rush that front seven man who protects Jared Goff blows the holes open for Todd Gurley and is a Walter Payton man of the year award nominee for all of his great works here in southern California. Andrew Whitworth back here on the program. How you been Andrew? Doing good rich. Appreciate you have me. Oh, man. You Bet El always what'd you do on your by week. You know, what we we called it a prep week rich? You wanna buy we? Okay. What does that mean? You know, you know, now, it was more about honestly getting ourselves ready and prepared physically and mentally for this week. I mean, so it's less about getting away and getting break like you have in season. And I really thought we treated it really well as kind of a off a couple of days, and then the rest of the time working, you know, not necessarily like getting out on the field practicing. But you know, working out and doing some study ourselves throughout the season. And things that we did good or bad, and what we can do better really to be as efficient. We need to be in the playoffs. You watch football onto. I guess scout. Who's coming your way, potentially? Oh, yeah. Watched all the games. And and you know, just kinda know little bit about everybody that may be the future that you're gonna have to play. And obviously don't start this week with the with the Dallas Cowboys before we turn to that. I'll I'll I'll turn you into part of the pop rati here. Andrew, which performance the process, you the most for what you watch this weekend. You know, I think that honestly a lot of the games went pretty similar. How thought that you know, Baltimore. I I don't know for some reason I kinda thought they might be able to repeat their performance being at home and dominant that they were and they're really they did play good on defense. Just didn't find enough offense to win the game. But that was one as good as I think the charges are I think they really special. I just thought that Baltimore has kind of some of that playoff that you've seen win. Just good defense. Great running game. You kind of see that win this time of year, especially at home and that one kinda somewhat about they would be a little better earlier in the game. And they were just maybe again, it's just so difficult for a first timer to win a playoff game at the quarterback position. And as you know last year when Atlanta coming in last year to Los Angeles, and and what was able to be done to the offense that we hadn't seen very much out of your Rams offense last year and Jared. Golf. I mean, what what is it about a first time playoff experience? Andrew you think you know, what speaker everybody just the quarterback? It's it's that, you know, what the efficiency level really just just making sure you don't make mistakes put yourself behind this Dick's and really hurting your football team got to be something that STAN in playoff football. Both teams are great. You know, you're not gonna get the gimme bomb plays. And just you know, kinda embarrassing each other. You're gonna have to earn every yard and play off a ball. And so, you know, really that officiency of doing the little things really well as what you have to do to win playoff games. And you see I mean all the way Indian into Houston and just officiency they had in the first half. I mean, just every time they had the ball signing away to get that first down. And and then the big plays will come of intially. So, you know, I think that's the thing. I think that's something we all learn from last year together group and and Jared as well. And I think we all look forward to the opportunity coming up four time Pro Bowl or Andrew Whitworth. Offensive tackle here on the rich Eisen show. The sense that that golf is not the same quarterback since that night when you guys were on tilt against the chiefs on Monday night football. What is something different about him as something been different from your perspective? Andrew, no, I really feel like you know, what the quarterback wears at all. So if you're winning in your will quarterback gonna get all the praise in the world, and if you have a badge dress realistic games in a row the quarterback gonna take the heat. And you know, what I think it's really it truly is about all eleven. Yeah. There's some plays and situations. The jury would love to have back. But also, I think that we've helped put him in some of those situations where maybe we're in a situation where big plate has to be made. And he's forcing a ball or make the decision because we're not playing well enough around. So, you know, I think it really goes hand in hand if everybody offense minute always has been sometimes you can have a dominant defense of. Player to make a defense. Good. But offensively, you know, the all eleven is gonna come into factor in eventually that gonna matter more than anything else. And so I think brought these last couple of weeks we've gotten back to doing what we do. Well, and that's being efficient scrap all across the field guys doing their jobs and doing it. Well, and and Jerry played you know, how spending play I think that we gotta do that we got to play well around him and give him the opportunity to be confident and don't make those plays. 'cause people forget he still extremely young quarterback in this league with a ton of talent. And we got to continue to put him in opportunities to go be successful. And obviously a balanced offensive is a way to help that situation out CG Anderson came in last two weeks and was just fantastic. How his girl looking in your estimate. And you can tell spilling better and we look forward to having him back. I mean, he's the dominant football player and somebody that's really special in the huddle and just on the field. I mean, he's he's you know, his mentality. Positivist carries over the Dallas. And so, you know, I think that we look forward to having him back man, what a job done, and we really found kind of, you know, something special there with him and mix the marriage of him and Austin running games really been well stuff a week's looks good. And who hope we can continue that you know it. I think we feel good about where we are. And really, you know, the opportunity you have run up. So, you know, it's funny lillies two games. And ultimately over that, you know, we're thirteen and three and feeling bad about ourselves. It's it's a bad thing to be you know, what we kinda got back to being the defense point. Well, we're looking for opportunities. And and the sense that zeke's coming to town offensive line. That gets a lot of praise is what's what sort of price. Ride is online with you and girly and the rest of your teammates on the line knowing that Dallas is coming in with that sort of credit being given on that front. Well, you know, I think that that something that those guys in past years earned, and how special group, and I think that there's a lot of good football players over there and Zeke is obviously, especially when so you know, what we know they're going to play well and do their thing. But we we believe in our selves, and we were willing to bet on ourselves. I think we look forward to this matchup. We look forward to the opportunity to find a way to win. And that's what playoff football is about. It's not about stats about the plays. And who's this or that? It's about what team, you know, find the cheaper sixty minutes to find a way to win the game. And I think that's the only focus. We have is what's going to get us a big dri. And I look forward to tell you what we're excited, and I think this is a neat opportunity for thirteen years. I've had a bye week so feeling good. And quite a game. No kidding, first time and baker's dozen years for prep week. They'll right Majer prep way. Yeah. Prepped, we don't you get. Come on. Now, I've got your back just like you used to having people's backs. I understand that. What does what challenge does Dallas present? Well, I mean, obviously we've seen him these last six seven weeks at defenses just continued to seem better and better every week. And you know, I think that the up front it's a similar team. They'll probably Philadelphia a little bit in the fact that they got a lot of great rushers. They got a lot of guys they can rotate in there that can Russia the quarterback, and and try and play coverage behind it and make you check the ball down and those kind of things and and they've done a really good job ship and moving and and being able to stop the run game those guys at the same time. And I think that their defense is going to be, you know, obviously with some really good athletes along backer atop team to have today you want. But I think that you know, what we we look forward to that challenge. This is play football, which expect is the best Jared you've had all year. And I think we expect nothing less. I Andrew, you know, I mean, congrats by the way, I'm being named well to paint man of the year nominee for your team. That's that's that's pretty huge stuff, man. And you know, we talked last time we spoke it was. Prior to where it looked like you were going to play in Mexico. And then it didn't when when so much was going on here here locally, how how is everything in the community there in Thousand Oaks just a few weeks later, Andrew. You know, things are improving. I mean, I think that there's still a lot of what we can do with the fires. And and really everything else that's happened. And you can so I think that you know, that's a that's a process force that guys off the field, and they're all calm or still have an opportunity to do stuff with. I mean, Jared himself has been busy with that. And finding ways to raise money and to just try to help people out in time. So I think that's something we'll continue to deal with and you know, for the time being and having been through Hurricane Katrina when I was gonna let you must senior year. I kind of know that process. It's just it's a you know, there's the immediate people that gonna react. And then there's that you know, what there's still a lot of work to do to help people out that are going through adversity. So we're gonna stick in there and do everything we can as athletes to try and help our communities. We look forward to that challenge as well. But you know, what it's it's fun, man. Get to see opportunities in versity sometimes fund the bright part just seeing how people pulled together and seeing how people step up for one another man it just reminds. What's so precious about life and also making your good, man, sir? You're good, man. Good luck to you this weekend. Congrats on making it through your prep week and getting ready for the Cowboys. You got it. Same. You. Andrew Whitworth at a Whitworth seventy seven on Twitter. I follow should do it too right here on the rich Eisen show. I was thinking of calling you guys out in front of them.

Suzy's first gig was to cover all southern California sports for these southern California sports report here locally on Fox Sports regional, and maybe this, you know, Oliver TNT and ABC work, but she did cover USC in the Pete Carroll era.

I saw more commercials for the draft on ESPN the national champion during the wild card game. Right. Is it me or did you feel less of a buzz for tonight's game? And then others, right. I MAC daddy. I feel there's almost zero buzz. I mean this a fourth year in a row, they're playing each other. And I say this with with all due respect, which as you know, I say this sort of thing, and you always make fun. I'm saying something disrespectful of is it because it's impact twelve country. Mean Pac twelve has been irrelevant since Sam darnold beat Penn State in a wild Rose Bowl couple years ago. I'm worried that there's going to be no one at the game tonight. I disagree. Alabama fans are everywhere. Clemson, I think it's going to be. I'm not concerned about about where that stadium is its initial corporate. Anyway, it's got you know, how it works, and it's corporate sponsors. And it's a boondoggle for all these corporate sponsors all year long. Get a chance to have people at the big game. And it San Francisco, I know, it's it's it's right down the street from San Jose. But it's still the bay area right there. And I just don't and Super Bowl fifty was there. It's a beautiful stadium. It is. I just don't think the bay area's college football. That's what I'm saying. Yeah, he's it because if it was down in this country is in this game in Atlanta or Jerry's world every single year the Rose Bowl. They're beginning to take it out of out of rotation of bowl game spots to the national game. Yeah. They are the taking spots. There's no bowl is there bulking platelets with all due respect to Santa Clara. Is it? I think there might be one right? The Pac twelve championship game gets played there. I just don't know is it because the pack twelve is been irrelevant and the national champion games being played in Pac twelve country that I don't know receive is gonna join us in five minutes here on the program. Get overreaction Monday conversation. Let's please. That was the garbage. Reaction mooners brought to you by truecar terms like dealer price list, price, invoice, truecar shows you what other people paid for the car you want. So you can recognize a good price when you're ready to buy new or used visit truecar to enjoy more confident car buying experience. Christopher have had it with right? The man of the hour, Nick foles. Yes. Better quarterback than Carson Wentz. Not an overreaction right now. It's all about them. You know, it would be this is the this. Let's get to it right here. Let's do it. If Nick foles takes his team to the NFC championship game or even further you have to sit here and say is it with the money on the line when he does it over weeks one through sixteen outside of that one year he had with chip Kelly, by the way that season with chip Kelly wound up with foale's losing his first career playoff start against the saints. The only team to have beaten Nick foles in a playoff game, Mick as we all know one all his games last year. And then his first one this year. So you have to sit here and say Kenny do it with the season not all online and a doer Di game and get you to the playoffs. So he can perform his magic in the postseason. That's going to be the conversation that the eagles having a quiet moment. And he's thirty. So you can get a few more years left. You have to consider that. But it's not an overreaction to say that. Yeah. Nick foles free agent in two thousand nineteen Carson Wentz do four million next year club option for twenty twenty given the eagles have until thirty days before the newly gear meaning sometime next month. They've gotta tell Nick foles your twenty million dollar option for next year is picked up, but it's mutual so foles that has five days to say or Nain he'll say no to that. Because he'll get multiple years from somebody at way, more than twenty million bucks. I think if he beats the saints conversation that needs to be had. That's why it's not an overreaction next up the Los Angeles chargers the most complete team in the national football. What does that mean? That's like when here boxer pound for pound. What does that mean? Most complete team complete all three phases. Offense defense special teams throw in the fourth coaching. Excuse me. The the saints. Offense is terrific. The saints defense has been balling out and the special teams the punter hardly ever punts. And we'll let's of pretty good field goal kicker. I mean, everybody's complete right now. I don't understand what the hell that means most complete team. Okay. Reese -ly, right? What it means? It means when you watch them you don't see any weaknesses. So how how can we say the culture not the most complete team their offenses on tilt their defense? Hardly gave up a point this weekend in Houston. And it's Adam venit. Terry the goat special teams. I try to tell you we go that the colts were sleeping giant colts. And it could be the most complete team. The Cowboys are pretty damn complete team right now with everybody going off on offense. So you're saying I'm saying that's an over. I'm not saying reaction overreaction. I'm saying I might be overreacting to the concept of what the hell that means. What else Joe flacco deserve to play in the second half. Yesterday. Overreaction. He didn't deserve. I mean, look come on man John Harbaugh sitting there, and you heard what Tracy Wolfson asked him that question. You're gonna play John. Joe flacco you considering that in the second half. And she said his answer was I respect you for asking that question. But I'm going to decline to answer it gonna talk about it. Because if if Lamar Jackson struggled even to put Joe flacco in the game, or he had no consideration putting the mar in the game because he thinks he's going to be the coach there for much longer and for longer than this. And this is part of the maturation process. But he was he was terrible. He was terrible until the almost won the game because the charges were laxed because the game was over. He got sacked seven times. It was funny. When I first thought about maybe they should put Lamar in the game that left guard was getting beat like rented mule. Melvin Ingram verbiage rented mule. Nell Wrangham the number. Flacco would have been sacked even more. So I can't sit here and say that Joe flacco deserved to play in the second half. But what he did though was he didn't pout he kept his he kept ready. You could see sometimes he was saying stuff to Lamar Jackson. He was a professional a lead pipe wheeling pro that is going to make a second act somewhere. And I think be successful at it that he deserves. I mean, you knew that he was going to be a professional about it. But wouldn't you have liked to hear him say after the game? Hey, look after all I've done for this franchise. I won the Super Bowl, I deserve to have gotten a shy in a quiet moment. If you were ever so fortunate to sit there with Steve Young ask him what Joe Montana did if you're ever an acquired moment, and you can ask Aaron Rodgers. What Brett farve did if you're in a quiet moment and ask Jimmy G? What Tom Brady did. You can't expect guys to sit there and go. Okay. You've taken my job. I've got all these kids that are in school here in the Baltimore area. And I want to Super Bowl here. And you're taking my job some people will find it in them to to turn in. We're do it. He didn't it wouldn't have said that after the game because he's a pro. That's why not it's not gonna pro to to say, hey, look to just state facts. That's also being professional. It's professional to leave the le-. I it's a high road high class. I think professional thing to do. And I think flacco deserves that credit. Well, let's stay with the ravens. John Harbaugh will be coaching elsewhere in twenty nineteen. I am hearing that he told his coaches yesterday that you've got a job. But didn't fill in the blankets to where the job was. And he's probably making some wise maneuvers sitting there saying, okay, Ozzie Newsome is not here anymore. I've got a new general manager who's I don't know what nature is relationship is. But to use some form of leverage to get a better deal with income struck of the organization or he wants out. It's gonna be fascinating next few days. I'll tell you that. That's over reaction Monday here on the rich Eisen show. My good buddy from the worldwide leader in sports who if I'm not mistaken is going to be making. I think history this year. I don't think anybody's ever anchored in NFL and NBA draft in the same season of the berm it ever did it and I've never done. It receive is gonna do that for the worldwide leader in sports. But tonight, he's anchoring the coverage of the national championship game from Levi stadium. How are you? I'm doing great rich. And I I was not aware of that little little historical. I think it is. Dopp it come on. I'll be honest with you Reese, I'm not feeling the the the hype here for the national championship game. I'm wondering what what you're feeling. I just don't I don't know if it's because we've seen the match up three straight years ready to with it all on the line before in tonight's, you know, the fourth mistaken. Hope so rich because I think in terms of setup the only game that I can think of certainly in this generation that even comparable is Texas USC now one of the reasons that we remembered Texas USC so finally because it was a great game. And we don't know how this will play out. I'm sure there is a little bit of familiarity that you know, that impacts way people feel about it. But I mean, these two teams this is this is excellent. This is like I'll take Frazier. Laker celtics. This is this is the pinnacle of the sport. So I hope that there's a there's a lot of buzz about it in some quarters. I do think that maybe, you know, the the lack of ticket demand because difficulty for the two fan bases at least where prominent primarily located difficulty getting here might impact a little bit inside the stadium tonight. But you know, overall, this is a this is a tremendous championship match-up. But my judge. No, it is I'll be watching. I'm not saying I'm not going to be watching. I was just, you know, just wondering, you know, because as you pointed out it's geographically on sound for the two campuses its impact twelve country. And but neither here nor there. Let's let's discuss this this matchup for which I am personally excited. What do you think? Emmy gimme a key. Gimme key for tonight to look for. To me. The biggest thing is really it's almost boring because it sounds real football head stuff about the lines of scrimmage, but I think Alabama with the injury to Christian millers really their best edge. Rusher leaves them without a quicker twist kind of guy who can get to the quarterback. And I think that could be a problem against Trevor Horn's because they've got big receivers Alabama has some you in the secondary, at least a corner that could be a big issue and then on the other side interior of clemson's offense. If wind while it has been productive over the course season, it hasn't it hasn't dealt with anybody like when Williams and if he can disrupt them in the middle, then I think that's where that's where the game lies, obviously in protecting to if you know, if they Alabama protects to be very effective. I'm excited to watch too. I really am. I mean, we only got a half well a half plus in overtime last year. But just watching him. I'm I'm and he's full go. Right. There's there's no question about his ready. He's been a little bit sore rich. But he's he's ready to go practice. You know, obviously threw the ball. Great. I guess Oklahoma. This is much different defense for sure I don't, you know, I don't know that he's quite as quick and his fast is, you know, maybe he was before he was hurt. But some of their some of their coaches told me this week that they felt as if he's probably healthier now than he has been at any point since he was since he I banged up his knee against Arkansas midseason. So they they're no concerns at this moment. Anyway, would to it. So okay. Who who's picking a game tonight? You're going to have just one game. So you having a celebrity picker for winning. Ticker. We have a celebrity cast of thousands of back of sitting in trailer. Reside chip Kelly right now, he'll he'll be on the show with us Gusmao John's around Jim Mora, you know, works with us now is involved throw their show. And so we've got all kinds of guys, but we don't have necessarily the celebrity guests picker Willie celebrities to imagine dragons, a little Wayne with the halftime hell, I can't my sons are really excited about imagine dragons tonight, that's big. So you legitimately directly next chip Kelly. Right now is what you're saying. I am I'm watching Thai his tie. How's how's it is? He a Windsors he double Windsor gone. What does he says he's struggling with winter? What he doesn't know? He doesn't tie ninety. What does he in all seriousness? Reese, what does he think watching Nick foles doing what he's doing? I haven't asked if you want to end the phone to get real quick Reese. Rich Eisen or do you want me to ask you want to know what you think about what polls is doing right now. He says Knicks the best. There you go. That's a quote couldn't happen to a better guy. That's a rich rich Eisen show exclusive here. Okay. So Reese Reese Davis here on the rich Eisen show. So tonight, do we expect do you think a close game? Do you think this is really gonna come down to it? Because the last time these two teams as we all know faced. When they weren't when it wasn't for all the marbles. It didn't really go very, well, what do you expect from tonight? Reese, I think close, and I think there will be a lot of points rich. This is a different Clemson team. I mean, I really have a lot of respect for Kelly Bryant as a player and young man, but he's nowhere near the passer Trevor warranties, and it's changed Clinton's offense. So I think you're going to have something that's much closer to the two championship meetings, which forty five forty and thirty five thirty one that's the type of game you're going to see tonight. I believe between these two I think you're going to see a lot of big place while offense and whoever can get key defensive stops will will walk out with that trophy receive is here on the rich Eisen show last one for you. Because you're gonna turn the page to college basketball, where as you know, based on the way that things went for the university of Michigan football team. I've been focused on college basketball a lot earlier than I have in recent years REEs. And I am thinking this what I was thinking that Michigan hops the DeLorean in on behalf of the fab five that got rejected by Duke returns, the favor and does it to their version of the fab five this year. What do you think about that idea? Davis. That would be perfect symmetry. And I wouldn't be surprised. I watched Michigan the other night playing. I've seen him a couple of times. But even though they're not shooting. Well, as John would like at the moment, you know, they will. That's a really really good team. I think you've got a lot of happy times and store what the tournament rolls around for the wolverines this year. I really do. You do you. So do you think it's possible though, they can do that design all those guys and coach K do. Yeah. Absolutely. Think it's possible race. You're not you're saying that to be a nice guy that you are. I'm I'm really, I'm really not. I mean, the most talented team no doubt about that. But how many times the most talented team win that tournament? Not not all the time. So Michigan is plenty good enough to win the national championship. And they're really good on defense, which you know, sometimes young team has no matter how talented they can struggle with that aspect on a big stage. I really like Michigan's opportunity to make the final four if you make their again. So we have chance to win national championship. Sided Reese, have a great time tonight. Enjoy you know, I'll be watching the entire time. And then I look forward to having you back on and thanks for the chip Kelly exclusive that you got from rich take care of you. That's Reese Davis at ESPN underscore Reese Davis, one of the nice guys. And and our business. Up there in warriors country where they've run it. Back warriors. Cavs for all those years in a row field. Same thing. Then same straight years now four straight years of this feels the same thing, although four straight years in the NBA was for the championship. Right. Right. Whilst here. They put in the semi-final, right? So then it was pretty ugly. Let's see what tonight looks like. I hope it's close close really do. And do you think what's the over under four hours? Oh, I thought you meant the no, no, no, no four hours the game time. Yeah. From toe to the end of the game with imagine dragons in the middle. And he's you know, there's a million commercial pods. That lasts five minutes long. Kickoff is a little after five Pacific, eight o'clock eastern. Does it end before midnight? I say I'll say yes, just to be different. It's going to be close. All right. We'll take your phone calls when we come back here on the rich Eisen show. And if you if you missed. Some of the calls on what happened Cody parkey including today. What Rex Ryan to say? This guy. Okay. Nobody he's given. He gives a lot of to what people think about kickers. But as you know. I look at the human side of things. That's next. Hey listeners just wanted to take a minute to thank all of my great sponsors. And all of you. Great listeners for supporting this podcast.

I don't think it's going to be a real hot scoring game. When he said, I I think feeling to be in the twenty maybe twenty seven twenty four something like that. I mean, you got you got one of the best best defenses. Alabama's played all year. They they got a tremendous pass rush. They got the best corners and probably football. And they held Notre Dame only eight yards on the ground. They they thirty five attempts to run the ball. Only got eighty eight yards. Alabama's gonna have to throw the ball. And you know, they've got a good pass Russian and avert good corners. So I think it's going to be a close game. I don't think it's going to be fifty five is over under. So you know, I don't see how you saying. It's going to be in the sixties you nervous. That's just my opinion. Were you nervous? I think this is probably the this is going to be the best time we played all year in the defense that they've got with the pass rush. You know, they they're just I think they're solid all the way around on defense. I mean, they proved it against Notre Dame. They really hadn't played anybody all year they beat everybody by three touchdown since September twenty nine. So how you gonna you know, if you pick 'em apart? It's it's kinda hard to pick them apart. When they've won the last time that they was in a close Dame was been September the rest of them. They've won by touchdowns. Now saying that Alabama, you know, if you look at what they really didn't play anybody till we got to the end of the season. So knock you really evaluate us. You've been a different team since beating the citadel. That's obvious. We have our signature win is Oklahoma which had the normal. Big out. There is a big signature on top of the citadel.

Everybody would give the people what they want. Once again, five shows this week excited to give you five dove shows the step to and then we get preempted for a while. Last night in Chicago the eagles moving in the fourth quarter. This play gets them down to the one yard line. And now we had the fourth and one golden Tate scores. Touchdown only fifty six seconds left. After a Tariq. Cohen return. We have this beautiful ball from to bid sqi that puts them well within comfortable field goal range for the guy, Cody parkey. And of course, you know, by now it off the crossbar and the upright, and everyone is said in Chicago Jalen rose watching this game. I did feel like the Chicago Bears were the better team on the football field. Do you think the best team that seemed has the best chances to move on in this terminent tournament won the game? No. But that's what it call it while car football in this is why you never underestimate the heart of a champion as Rudy team once said and that relates to the Philadelphia Eagles who fought through injuries in particular the defensive side basically all season with their running backs. It was good to see sproles out there being productive. You know, they lost Carson wins last year lost them again this year. But this is all about Nick foles. Okay. Anytime you're the Chicago Bears. And your defense is on the field with the lead. You would think that they're able to close it up for him to go six for nine get that third and nine to get that fourth thing go to golden Tate. That's stand up football. And you gotta get him. A lot of problems you do. And I also I wanna show that golden Tate touchdown that kind of sealed the win for them. Because it was it was really sneaky by golden Tate. Someone you've seen play a lot. He ran out and looked over his left shoulder in that. Froze, the cornerback for a second. And then broke right? It was it was a great move by him. It was a gutsy call. They tried something very similar Jeffery and the previous play as someone who's watched tape play for years as a lion. Would you think about that performance? Does this justify them trains, Chris route runner, and I'm not surprised that they trusted his hands. So late in the game. This is why they acquired him during the season. An amazing play. Call great poise but Doug Peterson the head coach foles rolling out to his right. And so like it just fascinates me. How much better this team sees to perform in the playoffs in particular where he's on the center? Can we not sleep on the fact that he's the reigning Super Bowl MVP and just won a game on the road at the bears and did a game winning drive like is truly impressive. What we see in? It was oppressive. And there's also, you know, did the play of Jason Peters who was lined up. Against Khalil Mack. And if you watch his game I watched every snap at his game. I expected more from MAC he made some big plays. And especially with that goal line stand. He made a really big play on first down. But I expected to see more from MAC I didn't want him to impact the game more research prize at how well Peters and others limited MAC in this game. I wasn't surprised. How will Peters played? I was surprised however that MAC had zero sacks. And so like if you're able to neutralize him in that fashion. I felt it would be a low score ugly rock fight type of game which it was. But you would think that if their defense is on the field in the fourth quarter with the lead playing at home, the monsters of the midway have to find a way to close the deal. Yeah. Of course, you can look at the kicker and forty three yards. That's a makeup field goal. We seen the last couple of years that the kicking game seems to be less raw reliable than ever before. So I wanna make this all about the championship. DNA of the Philadelphia Eagles taking the victory as Chicago. Well, you mentioned Cody parkey, and you know, I'm emotional, and I'm sensitive Jalen rose. And when I saw that happen immediately. Just my heart goes out to this guy. And like, I I don't know how I would handle myself, especially in that moment. And also when you're back in the locker room after getting booed by the home crowd, and you're just surrounded by reporters lights in your face cameras. Snapping them asking questions. Let's just listen to how Cody handled that moment let the team down tell me. So I have to own it out to be a man, and you know. Unfortunately, unfortunately, that's the way and went to that. I mean, that's the worst one of the worst feelings in the world to to let your team though. So I feel terrible be crying. I'd be in the field position. Crying with the ski mask over myself. I wouldn't even be able to take questions. I would I'd be I'd be digging away through the wall to exit through the back door. It'd be just just trying to get away from there. So fast. We impressed with how Cody handled the moment. I was impressed. And I appreciate how he owned it. Because most people are there for the cameras when it's time to be celebrated but duck and hide when it's time to be questioned based on your performance and not getting done and the oh adage on ABC was the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat and you saw it play out right there. And so it wasn't because of that kick that they lost the game. But at the same time this a makeup will kick on your home field. You hope he's going to deliver in that situation. He was not. Able to do. So and you saw the disappointment. Well, as there always is there was drama in Dallas, the Dallas Cowboys hosted the Seahawks and Jerry's world and the Cowboys look good throughout they were winning games throughout the Seahawks. Made a late surge. So you see it's only won by two points. But it was a huge win for the Cowboys who we all know have not been that successful in the play offs recently. Jalen rose does this victory victory validate. The Jason Garrett die Prescott era Rian down ever talking about this topic weeks and weeks ago when the Cowboys were actually struggling and said pump the brakes on being so hard on Jason geared. And so like that team acquired Amari Cooper, stabilized, its new era version of its triplets. That got a lot of confidence in that final game in particular against the giants. Where he threw four touchdowns Zeke Elliott was resting. Now. You get Zeke back in the lineup. You give him thirty touches. It's a form of balance. Their defense has been stalled all year, and so many people felt like Seattle hat would it took to go on the road and beat Dallas. I just felt like it was their time to get it done. And they came up big when they needed to douse defense was excellent. They held the Seahawks to seventy four yards on twenty four. Russia's one of the best run running games in the game was stifled in Dallas. I liked Dallas moving forward. Let's talk about who they have to face. Let's look at what's happening in the NFC. Now, you have the Dallas Cowboys going into Los Angeles to play the Rams who have been hot and cold of late. And you also have the eagles. The defending champs is the sixth seed going in to New Orleans to play in the Superdome. Who do you think has a better chance in upset? The Cowboys the eagles. I would have to say the Cowboys have the better chance that upset based on those squat because while you know, about the names on the defense of the Rams, of course, Aaron Donald was terrific his second number this year were out of control. They've allowed teams to gash with the run. And so it's going to be interesting to see if the Cowboys have that level of patients with the run game are able to slow down the Rams on their home field. But I'm going to be throughs iast to see two things on the field at the same time that I love three down banks. Oh, man. I just loved him so much and to see girly and the seas Ziegfield two of the four five three down backs in the game on the field at the same time is going to be great theater in the other game is hard to pick against philli. And I would've said them, but it seems like this is the saints opportunity to beat up on a wounded team. Offensively. It is now time for what's your number. You very well. And you get pulled a lot of directions. You've got family in Atlanta and a school in Detroit, you've got work in New York and work in Los Angeles. Of course, you're married. So you wanna stay home you pulled on directions in wish you could be everywhere at once. We'll guess what? There is a new product called human Uber a human over what they do. Is you hire somebody who then takes an ipad and puts it over their face. And then they attend functions with you your face live streaming on top of their body now. Jalen, a lot of people think this is like, oh, what would how much Jalen pay to be able to do this? But I'm going the other way. How I always think about the person who has to wear the ipad on their face. Jalen rose. How much do you think I would charge per hour to wear an ipad on my face and a ten functions as somebody else? Well, this is interesting because like it's harmless in painless. So that means the price should be astronomical. But in this case, if you were going to walk around with a reciprocal image on your forehead, I would probably say you do that for. Five thousand. One thousand dollars an hour. So if anyone wants me to attend to function as with them live should be on my face. I'm available for one thousand dollars an hour. And this also got us thinking pulled a lot directions, you've got jobs all over the country. And sometimes you're not in the studio. So like, maybe we should start hiring a human Uber for you. When you appear in the studio here with you know. I've got a five year old board doing that. We're going to be violated labor laws. Who knows I'm sure that will make sure that it's all above the board. There's so much to do New York City. I found myself going to sleep at ten thirty two when everything starts popping. But one thing I am dedicated and doing is making my son in Knicks fan. He loves going to Knicks games. He loves a cotton candy. I think he loves the con candy more than the basketball, but I took him to a Knicks nets game. He was into it. He refused to leave until this final buzzer. Sounded no matter how much the Knicks were losing to the nets. And he really got he really got caught up on goaltending. That was a big thing for him the whole rule of goaltending. He understands he's excited about he thinks like a goal tend to him is better than like a buzzer beater. The wins the game for the team. He loves goal Goldstein's. Big goaltending fan. Not exactly a Nick banner basketball fan. Huge goaltending. Fin. The way they're gone tickets. I went to my seacat and just council last minute tickets. It was easy.

And Clemson, Jalen, here's the thing. These teams have faced off in the college football playoff the last four years Clemson into Shawn Watson won the championship a couple years ago. Every other game Clemson his law. So they're now one in three against Alabama. They've been very dominant against all other teams except Alabama. How much does Clinton need to win this game to keep the allusion to Alabama's not as dominant dynasty to keep the quote, unquote rivalry alive? Like, how important is it for sort of college football fans and college football business comfortable as a whole the Clemson wins this game to make it feel like there's a team on even par with Alabama. What s what a rivalry actually is not two teams making it to the championship game. We're playing in the playoff one team actually winning. And then the other team able to follow suit like Clinton has been able to do when they won the Shawn Watson, look no further than to chess moves that these two teams made over the past four seasons. Number one, Nick savings softest quarterback at halftime of the national championship game. He takes Jalen and he puts in to what does the gadget. Thord gay when a touchdown. Okay. So now, you're Clinton how do you one of Alabama? Out goals Kelly Bryant, incomes triple lords the most board position on the field to quarterback and we've seen now why they made that move. Let's see tonight. If it's going to actually pay off for Clinton. We will see However, I strongly believe the Alabama woman this game that'd be shocked Clemson wins. I mean, I've been shocked before but Alabama certainly looks good and Nick Sabin would if he was tonight gets his seventh seventh championship which would break a tie with bear Bryant for most by a head coach in the AP poll era, if he wins seven championships does that make him the greatest college football coach of all time. Absolutely. I don't think he has to win for us to actually say that there's a mount Rushmore of all time, great coaches that are still performing look at Gino Yukon, women in the championships. Did he's one obviously coach K Duke, Nick Sabin. Would he's doing at Alabama the patriots with Bill Belichick like this. This has become as something like if the Golden State Warriors can't continue to a sin like visits was sports is all about you literally have the great team the great iconic coach for each opponent to now have that measure instinct, and we'll see if Clemson has what it takes to up in Alabama June. I have Alabama easily winning this game by over ten points. How do you think you'll play? Oh, I wanna see Clemson win because everything we just discussed. But if I was a bed man, gotta go with Alabama. I agree now very quickly. Jalen rose. There is an update on the ongoing drama in. Pittsburgh the latest is this is the Steelers are likely to deal and Tonio Brown by March when the new league season begins and their reports that Ben Rothlisberger thinking about restructuring his contract to sort of aid that and give them a little more flexibility in the off season. Do you think Antonio Brown ever wears a Steelers uniform again? I think if it's up to him he'd be happy that he got moved. I think watching him as a player become an all pro to now seeing the team not take care Levy, I'm Bill and then the season end in the way that it does. I think he would be happy if the Pittsburgh Steelers decided to move him, especially if it's too at offense that really effective and getting the ball down the field. Jalen rose berry intriguing game in Baltimore yesterday. The chargers flew over to the west coast and kind of dominated the ravens who gave it didn't feature too much often. Certainly from the ravens it all came down to the end when the chargers held back. The ravens who kinda surged a little bit with Lamar Jackson under center in the fourth quarter and won the game. I was not surprised the chargers one. But I was surprised by just how dominant they were on the road in Baltimore. Or what did you see from this game? I wasn't surprised like you detergents, warm because I felt like in his first playoff game at twenty one years of age initially the moment and the throws weren't going to be there for Jackson in. So as the game progressed, I appreciated the fact that he got it together through a couple of touchdowns. He's always good with his feet and so four Baltimore. You have found your quarterback of the future, you have remade. How teams run off its anti Kansas City Chiefs how fly air you'll take. I would say they literally have a grounded problem with a quarterback to sometimes seems to be running what resembles a high school office yet. He's affective at doing it the ball control allow the defense to continue to shine. A seems like Baltimore's defense has been physical almost forever. And so this is about the chargers going on the role. Getting it done as a dark horse type of team in the AFC. Melvin Ingram for the chargers. Had a great game. He had a forest fumble fumble recovery yet to sacks. He just seemed to be all over the place, and we all know about Joey Bosa then people think chargers, they always think about the offense put the charges defenses, certainly formidable. You can just ask Lamar Jackson who really looked out of sorts for the first three quarters of the game and the conversation. If you're watching the game amongst the announcers, but also most your friends that you're watching the game with was do you put in Joe flacco, if you were John Harbaugh at halftime, would you have not just considered, but what you've actually pulled the trigger and put in Joe flacco into new game. How about this? Lamar Jackson ended up throwing for mole yards. Philip rivers did. And so I like how you said at halftime would have considered. It is something that you think about because you don't wanna let the entire roster down when one position is performance, especially the quarterback spot. But you gotta think long term and once you decide to go with Lamar and the team plays well with him. And then they find their way into the playoffs. All of a sudden if he struggles in the first half, you can't take them out. You just can't do that is. So if you felt like Melvin Ingram was getting pressure on Jackson's. What do you think he would have done with that statue? Joe flacco standard in the pocket and always both in Derwin change as as the safety. And so like, I understand the conversation has to be had. But you don't make that move. And I'm glad that he did well in the. I wild card playoff game of the weekend. Which now feels like fish Lee three weeks ago, the colts traveled into Houston, and they really dominated the Texas. They jumped out ahead twenty one to nothing in the first half. And never really looked back to Shawn Watson. And Andrea Hopkins just managed to put up seven points. Didn't see a lot from the Texans in this game. That was encouraging certainly not a lot from Andrea Hopkins. I was shocked that they didn't use Hopkins more. What do you think this means the Texans before we turn our attention to the coals of disappointed in O'Brien and the Texans because as you know, are pegged this team to go far based on their talent on both sides of the ball. And the Shawn Watson I was disappointed in his performance. They say that Hopkins was dealing with the shoulder injury right before have. So that probably goes to the fact that he wasn't getting a lot of tips and key can Cutie ended up getting them which he had a terrific game. But this is more. More about the ascension of the colds and what an elite quarterback looks like an edgy. Look when you give them some protection on the offensive line. Now, all of a sudden they have balance and their defense where for the average fan may seem like a no name defense their defensive line has become one. That's really stout like they're complete football team at this point of the season. I'm glad you brought up the colts offense of line because that's been the underrated part of this story this season that turned around they did not allow a sack. This is their seventh game without allowing a sack. They've only allowed eighteen sacks in seventeen games. Then you Mitch you put into look back there. He's not just back there. He's not scrambling for his life. Like he used to be like now he is back there and he's got time and he could pick apart the defense. This was a very comfortable win for the colts. And I'm looking forward to seeing what they do next matter of fact, let's take a look at what happens next in the AFC playoff picture. We have those colts that we. Discussed going into Kansas City to play the chiefs who at one point in the season looked unstoppable, but now look vulnerable, and then we have the chargers again, traveling to the east coast from the west coast to play the New England Patriots. Jalen rose do think the colts which of the cult of the charges didn't has a better chance of pulling off an upset. No doubt about it. The chargers patriots. Because while they did a terrific job of winning their division. And getting the buy New England just does not look the same. And we know about them losing, Gordon. And we know that Tom Brady is getting up there in age, but I've talked about grunt looking like he was slowing down like the last couple of seasons. So I think the chargers have a better opportunity to go on the road and get a win. But you can't sleep on those codes playing at KC. Would it clearly won't have Kareem hunt that level of balanced at the run game was provided when he was helped when he was available to the team. I wouldn't be surprised if both royalties actually found ways to pull off victors, you know, what of course, we're going to break these games down as we go through the week. And we make our picks at the end of the week. But I'm looking at these four teams, and I could see any one of these four teams winnings. These games, it's very foggy. At this point. We'll cleared up for you. As we move to the. Eweek? Let me tell you about Pete who loved hockey and always wanted to play in the NHL Pete played since he was three and begged his mom to let him stay on the ice by some nights. He even slept in hockey skates. Pete practiced and practiced until one day when he was forty seven p realized he just wasn't that good. So he threw his skates in the trash. But then you heard how Geico proud partner of NHL good save money on car insurance. So he switched and saved a bunch. So it all worked out Jalen rose. There was a lot of action in the NBA over the weekend. But not all of it happened on the court the Minnesota Timberwolves who are now fighting for a playoff spot about two games out of a playoff spot in the west beat the Los Angeles Lakers. It's good news. The beat up pretty handily wasn't even close seems like good things are happening for the Timberwolves until we get this report that Tom timid oh has been relieved of his duties as not just the head coach. But also as the president of Basque. Football operations for the Minnesota Timberwolves, Jalen rose. What do you think about the timing of this firing of town sibito? The time is interested. I can't say I'm surprised I think this season started to unravel before it ever got going with the whole Jimmy Butler saga and tips who's a really good NBA coach. And I think he deserves another opportunity somewhere in the league didn't necessarily get everybody initially the play to their maximum ability except Derek rove who had a resurgence this season. So he is a player in particular. I'm going to watch and monitor pro- productivity moving forward because he was really effective with Tibbs as its head coach. But overall once they pay Wiggins of maximum contract, they needed him to perform they need him to perform such and why towns has had his moments of consistency. He has been playing really well. Scoring and bores getting blocks. Like he's playing with a level of enthusiasm. They had a great win against the Lakers as you noted. And so like forty to be relieved. I can't say I'm surprised it happened. But it normally doesn't happen. If you got a big time roll win will there's a follow tweet about this from whoa JR. It wo- JR. On and he tweeted about maybe some potential replacements for the job that is now open woes tweeted quote. N B, Minnesota GM Scott laid it will remain in place for now. But his future is uncertain. Fred Hoiberg and ESPN analyst Chauncey Billips have been discussing Turnley as possible candidates for GM or head coach purse. Sources Hoiberg appears focused on return to NBA coaching interesting. There are some people that are kind of making the link between Hoiberg potential interest in the UCLA job. And the timing of the firing is he was like Hoiberg has been earmarked and some of the Minnesota wants to come in. But I asked you this does this mean that you're NBA countdown brother and my pickup basketball play me. Chauncey Billups will be leaving us and going to Minnesota. It will be will deserve. And I'm happy that he continues to be mentioned when these opportunities come up. I think if he wants to get an opportunity like that he'd do a terrific job when the dust settles. I think this is going to be frail Hoy Burks gig. He worked previously for really long time within the organization before he went to Iowa State, and there's always been in the Finnity for him with that franchise in. So I would not be surprised and the time and you just aknowledged with the UCLA job coming open. And we know the kind of coach that he was in college. He actually in my opinion, didn't get a true and fair overall shot to actually be a head coach in Chicago because they turned over the roster and the expectations of the team changed. It seemed like each season. So like, I would not be surprised if it's Fred. And he has some young talent to work with in Minnesota. That all happen in Los Angeles, and Minnesota and something very interesting happened in the bay over the weekend. No, it was not just interesting that the warriors won a home game there. I in a while. But they hosted the kings, and they combined to make forty one three point shots in one game which broke record for highest total of three point shots made between two teams the kings had twenty the warriors had twenty one very quickly. Jalen, what does this tell you about just how the three point shot is changing the game? Well, it just so now you have five guys and most lineup just surrounding the line driving kick for three or the gas have improved the level of being able to shoot off the dribble with accuracy and with range. These players have mastered that shot in so you have to extend your defense. And when you don't do so, and you get guys clean looks a Sacramento Kings team that is play expectation so far has a lot of good young talent. And we know the warriors can get going with the best of them. They they lit it up. And they and they took the NBA record. Well, it might have been forty two made threes except for this interesting play in this call from the referees. Now, I'm dying to know what you think about this watch Steph with the ball step back three hits didn't hit it. But still got called for whistle on a travel there holds up the one three hundred jersey we've seen players get away with this and this kit not called. Often, especially regarding James harden. What do you think about this? Call instead of holding up the one three on his jersey. So I if four moles let me get to the root of this issue. We're going to see the NBA flat. I'll start calling this a travel because it is. I don't know if it's going to be a public mandate. So that the media and fans and players can kind of look forward to it. I anticipate that that may take place, but you're in a game where you're not allowed to literally have any physical contact with a ball. Handler. You also can't allow them to take four or five steps on a step back jump shot. So I think that that's something that's going to be called consistently. I think it will be as well. And of course, Steph had something to say about it after the game. Saying that once or twice tried it myself. I got confused starters the newest somebody different. So they call it. It is. I mean, it might do in the media thing and looking too much into this is this Steph going hard and stuff going at the referee's. Steph trying to get the referees to call this morning harden. What's he doing here? This is really actually Steph acknowledging that he feels like he don't get the respect on his name that he deserves from the officials, and he's just using that call as a way to articulate it. But overall, I don't care if it's hard and doing it or Steph doing it. It's a flat out travel that play. Well, Steph is one of the greatest shooters that have ever seen with my balls. And there's also this shooting performance that I wanted to show you your adoptive. Father lavar ball was this shooting around is a little short on the first shot there. Gets it back and they just program again with the ball's going back to them. Okay. Let's he's just getting warmed up. All stock is that goes airball. So now we're short on three in a row, maybe take a step in might be little outside of his range might be a little outside of his range there. And then we got the fourth one note that one short too, and then now the crowds gathering. You gotta hit this one to get everybody excited. Now. Everybody getting knock it down. He he. This. This to me is someone who doesn't understand their range. You know, like if you're gonna be short on the first step is to take us deputy, lavar come you don't have to shoot from that far out of step. How are you say he don't understand his reign when he actually ended up making a shot? And how about the fact that somebody's parrot to be on the floor shooting threes. And everybody's standing around with camera phones trying to capture it what a great scene. I'm so enthusiastic. It'd be a part of the family. I just think it's just remember this Amandus it could be Michael Jordan one on one. You know what? I mean. I think his gave is more around the basket. Maybe maybe he's not he's not a long shot lately. We've talked about MTA on this show recently. What were the topics he dancing at a holiday party, and he's carrying tequila is the tooth things that we've recently that I support by the way to holiday parties, why not? Jalen rose Zion. Had another moment. Oh, did Zay on have a moment this weekend? If you have a smartphone you have seen this play cams Clemson brings it up Zion. Find self alone, and that's legit three sixty because you notice where speed started, and where's p finished that is a three hundred sixty degree dunk in a competitive basketball game. Jalen, he called this dunk of seven earn eight out of ten what does it? What is it? Ten Zion has a unique. Ability with his build to be so very explosive because normally guys that are two seventy don't do three sixty dunks during collegiate basketball game. Like, I remember what see well got steal. I think at Ohio State in debt one in the game. That reminds me of the level of athlete design. We've seen in collegiate basketball, bookie power forwards my favorite, one of my favorite teams UNLV, obviously, I love Eljay and rock the goal to just like him and all of that stuff. Rodney Rogers I've played with him in Denver for a couple of years, but for this guy to be two hundred seventy pounds and have that Chile. It's just amazing the type of athletes and potential that this guy has if he continues to grow. Basketball player, which I believe he is an important question about Zion. It's only been thinking about for a long time that I wanna put on wax, June rose. What's his eye on a stretch? Mark four. Is he what in theory he could be considered a part of the category? But he has no stress Mars. So it only plot. He's just too young. Now, this is this is an interesting right here. Zion shot eighty two percent from the field in this game. And this is the third game this season that he is shot eighty percent or higher in a game. What does that indicate to you about his game? They can't stop them from getting layups and dunks. Whether it's in the half court, but obviously in transition dukes most the league, the muster best in the country is still in the ball as you just saw on the previous clip. So teams as conference play continues to go around and you play them for the second time and wants to NCAA tournament comb, you're going to need for him RJ beer to be more efficient, obviously for Cam British to make shots and Jones does terrific job plan on ball D. But if teams are taking that away with some squads will eventually be able to do this is what I. That while this is going to be an amazing season for the blue devils. I truly believe it won't end in one where they cut down the nets and win the national championship. Well, look forward to seeing that Jalen I was shocked by a wo- JR. Tweet over the weekend. It was Friday everyone's off work and just relaxing. Then all of a sudden there's a little BoJ bomb reporting with Ramona Shelburne Philadelphia's Jimmy Butler has aggressively challenged coach Brett Brown on all stars role in seventy Sixers offense complicating an already tenuous chemistry. Among the teams big free hierarchy story on ESPN. There's a lot to talk about here. There's a lot to talk about here was my thing. I thought that Jimmy Butler would just zip his lips this year because he's you know, he's on a contract year. I played is he would become a mentor you'd love Bill Adelphia, and he would love coach Brown, and then he would wait to really tell people how he feels until after the season. And he signs a max steel. That's not what he's doing. Now. He's aggressively challenging the coach. And if you read into what won't says there, he says, it's sort of messes with the hierarchy of the big three. We've heard Joel MP complained about his role on offense. Jimmy Butler is complaining about his role on offense. What does this all this tell you about what's really happening in the Philadelphia locker room? Well, first and foremost, I think Brett Brown is a terrific coach and has done a unique job with a squad. That was initially taking to now one that has three all-stars legitimately. And so you talked about now playing to each one's strength while masking their weaknesses and win. The game is close in the fourth quarter. It can't be a little complicated based on who you want to feature or who you want to have in the action because Joel Embiid is over talented. So whether he's on the post whether he's at the free throw line area. Whether he's at the three he could clearly make a play for himself or a teammate at all times. But you can't just exhaust that it is a team game. And you don't want him to get for teeth. Ben Simmons is isn't a shooter at all. But however, you can't stop that guy from getting to the book that sixteen great athlete. Great passer has ways to get to the whole and finish, regardless of the fact that he's not making perimeter shots. And then Jimmy Butler who plays an intermediate game. Yeah, he can shoot the three. But in his game to be launching ten a games. And so you want this guy and picky roles. You wanna plan downhill you want to get him the ball on the wing while he's still has a live dribble and the ability to make a play. So these are like first world problems for the Philadelphia seventy Sixers, but I wanna point out two things that are really important is in this dynamic was truly going to be judged by what happens in the playoffs. And like I said the thing in the Eastern Conference. I'm looking forward to seeing his who's watching it because Toronto's play will Boston is. My pick to also make it there. But when you look at the standings Indiana's in the mix the books are in the mix, and obviously the Sixers are in the mix. So they go first round or second round and get eliminated that won't be playing up to expectations which leads to the second thing that I want to say, and that's when he's already talking like, this you have to have some level of fear that he may not re son in. So I appreciate how the raptors Masai Jerry L andbranch acquire koala litter and Jimmy Butler. Those guys have done a terrific job with those teams, and I would've made those deals because I think both of those squads needed that. Joel, however, what you trade Sergey you trae coming to and he's already aggressively complaining about his role if he leaves at the end of the season, and you don't get anything in return and you have a botch. Number one pig. Who on rooting for to do will Marquel? Fulls knowledge of a sudden they've set their franchise backwards based on the competition. That's gonna be interesting to see how it plays up absolute. And it's a two way street, maybe the Sixers after all this might not extend that max deal to Butler for him to turn down. You never know you talk about the higher key in the Eastern Conference. And you'd think that the Celtics will come out of the Eastern Conference. I'm pretty sure at this point that the raptors are going to come out of the Eastern Conference. They played two of the best teams in the Eastern Conference in back to back over the weekend on Saturday, go into Milwaukee and beat Milwaukee. And then quiet Leonard rests on Sunday in a game that I was watching during the football game, and they beat the Pacers. They was kind of close in the first half and the Toronto in the third quarter just kinda skipped away. Cow Lowry has now returned impressive back to back wins for the raptors. Do you think that they are the class of the eastern Eastern Conference? I do think so Nick nurse their first year. Coach doing a terrific job. And you've heard me say this on and off legs. We've seen calories. Be an all star multiple times can make the three most the league leaders in sits that's an improvement in his game. We know koala is one of the top full of players in lead, regardless of who's making the list. We know Kawais amongst the best players in the game. And he seems to now have his rhythm back which is scarily efficient and search balk as a season veteran, but I want to go deeper to the boss core chess cow Siachen his improvement. Not only handling the ball, it particular picket and situations, but his confidence that he can make an open shop has really unlocked this roster along with friv- leap because you could play him alongside lorries you can plan with Lowery's not in the game. He showed it he can have double digit assists. He's been a closer for them the last couple of seasons, and he can make a shot. And so like those two guys level of improvement help make up the fiber of a raptors team that I agree with you are currently to class in the east. I'm almost positive the PASCAL Siachen if this continues, and he stays healthy is going to win the most improved player, and he is. One of the most deserving most approved players that I've seen in quite some time in a war that Jalen rose one once upon a time. Jalen, I didn't wanna watch this. I walked downstairs right after the football last night ended around eight thirty I walked downstairs, and my wife was right in the middle of the first episode of surviving R Kelly. Right in the middle of the first episode of surviving R Kelly now we discussed this a little bit last week. I'm on the mute are Kelly movement. I will no longer be playing R Kelly songs whenever I'm on the ones and twos. You will not be hearing R Kelly. If R Kelly comes on I'm gonna do my best not to enjoy it. The way I used to sometimes I can't handle myself when it comes to our Kelly's art. But Jalen after watching this it really if. We all kind of new. But like, here's one thing. I want to ask you about after watching this. When you saw that he married a Lia could you not at least raise an eyebrow. At the time while this is a loaded topic for a lot of reasons because being a Detroit native gave me up close and personal look at the career in ascension of live major fan of hers as she hangs on the wall of immortals here in this fine studio. And so like their relationship at the time. Was something that was understood. But it seemed like for public consumption it really wasn't discussed. I think because she became a celebrity in her own right and ascended so much in her career it almost like that became a footnote because there were so many things happening for them musically. And as I look at those timelines because I've watched the survive in our Kelly documentary is well really will done shout the dream Hampton, also Detroit native who did a terrific job with this piece of known for a long time. And so like. In two thousand and two hours. A member of the Chicago Bulls. So like. It was it was horrifying to me to like relive some of the stories that I heard about as they were taking place real time versus actually seeing them being played out on documentary. And so like. The one bit of so many things that just are like horrific and and disgusting. I just can't big knowledge why we as a public allow that behavior to take place so very long. So here's things is Jalen, I'm not going to acquit myself of being one of those people like, I've always honest, and I was don't like to lines microphones. They wasn't until like the last. I know eight years I started being like, yeah. I don't think R Kelly is a good person anymore. Like it was at the time when he's coming out with all those hits. And he's got the song, Jay z. And he's got the admission remix, and he's got all these hits. And he's coming out with trapped in the closet. I'm celebrating that art and not part of. And there's not even a part of me that was like, you know, what I should not be celebrating this art now, I think a lot of people are are opening their eyes to this type of behavior. And I think using the term politically correctness is isn't appropriate. But like we do pull the wool. Over our own is a lot when it comes to celebrity, and when it comes to famous people, and we do sometimes separate the art from the human being, which is sometimes you do that just to make it okay for yourself. But in this particular case. I was one of the people that allowed this to happen. You know, what I mean when you say like, I can't believe that that as a public. We let that happen for so long. But if I put on some of his songs at the time when they came out you'd be rocket to him just the same way. I changed though, you had to look you have to look the mirror and say, you know, what I've changed. I'm no longer Rochman Marco. A major distinction has to be acknowledged what what takes place. In scenarios like this. Is when the perpetrator in this case R Kelly is severely punished by the judicial system that also allows for that person, depending on what walk a life. They they choose to do business in his case as an entrepreneur as a musician still allows him to give you that body of work that you just described because he was not punished as it related to a hefty jail sentence or discipline really stern based on a lot of the things that we've heard that he was involved in. Well, I urge everybody to watch if not all this documentary some of his documentary just to get a taste of the things that he is in my mind, very clearly guilty of emotional abuse, physical abuse. You know? Sexual acts with minors and sort of like just habits that continued over years and years and years, and you will no longer be hearing R Kelly if you come over to my house party, it ain't happening. DJ Motown clown. I encourage you to make the exact same adjustment to your playlists when you're on the ones and twos. As DJ Motown clown, generally quickly, something that the national media is not necessarily recognizing that I think it's important for us to on this program is the Michigan wolverines appalling. Like, they're not just beating teams they're beating right teased by double digits, number two looking good. How do you feel as a former wolverine right now? As a matter of fact, I think we're four oh against ranked teams. I wanna make this all about John beeline and his process because it's unconventional in a lot of ways what he has done for major collegiate program because Michigan is one of those schools that have expectations. To be in top ten football and basketball, not many schools have that realistic expectation of their programs with that being said when you're watching the McDonald's high school all American game over the past X amount of years. A lot of those guys. Don't go to Michigan new as a matter of fact, very few in up there. They ended up at Kansas. Arizona dupe Kentucky. And so what he's been able to do is craft a style of play that he's owned everywhere. He's gone and three happy offense. But it's still predicated on ball player of movement and an exciting style spreads the floor. Everybody's really disciplined about where they should be feeling spots. And so like how that is. Now, not only translated into being a number two team in the country. I appreciate seeing the remnants being sprinkled throughout the NBA because for a while other than Jamal Crawford. There wasn't a Michigan player in the league. Is. So when I see Glen Robinson, and I see Nick's style skews cures. The Vert was balling trait Burke in Tim Hardaway junior. Like all of these were his players. And so I'm really impressed. How he is rebuilt the program. Wilson with the bucks as well. Is another one of. Got it. This player productive minutes in the league under the played under John beeline. So I'm enthusiastic about the team. I think that this is going to continue and don't be surprised when things like winning the regular season big ten title winning the big ten tournament and make it to the final four like don't be surprised when those these take place this season. We always say, you're the people didn't want part of that is taking voice mails from our fans. If you call nine eight five eight zero Jalen, you can leave his a voicemail ladies, don't forget every Wednesday. We celebrate you the ladies of the world. So make sure you get on the phone and call nine eight five eight zero Jalen leave us voicemails right now, we're taking all callers like this. All right, man. Milwaukee man. So I'm a few days behind on my podcast so driving. Listen to cast from the other day yesterday was. My do Jacoby said he just put on clean drones after first of all sat out thrash. Thrash straight. Put on planes rose after playing in the basketball game, bro. I had to pause and think about that for a minute. Like that tomorrow's utopia man like. You gotta give people what they want. I'm person. I wanna promise that you're going to shower after every major activity. All right. You know, there's you don't have every day. Because sometimes frankly, you just don't do nothing in the date every pliers. You shower him. Like if you just sit in the crib all day, I'm not finish our. So I didn't sitting fifth again tomorrow on the weekend, you do, but you just got through running up and down the court for forty minutes with other sweaty dirty people that probably didn't wash their hands that's using the restroom and now they overhear touching basketball, and such you and now you over here, you know, touching your face and and stuff like that, man. And then you just going to go and put some some cleans Rawls on thirty buddy. Dude. You just such rated you you'll clean rolls on thirty nece. Come on, bro. I'm gonna need you. Do I'm gonna need you do better. If people they want. People want you take a shower after every major activities too. So here's here's what the people want honesty. You know what I mean? And let me tell you let me be honest with the people we're in New York City rec leagues anyone who lives in New York knows this. You don't play at gyms. You don't play a twenty four hour, fitness, John. Nice facilities. You are in like a middle school. And they sometimes they have locker rooms with showers. You can't even turn them on first of all because they're turned off or whatever, they don't even work. And I would say I I know a hundred percent of the people that play in New York City rec the urban professionals about small city would wrestle city hot showers for like herb officials or whatever they do not have facilities for you to shower at after the game. And then as tradition anyone who plays in washed up directly knows this. You have a couple of beers after the game and that particular night in question. I was watching the Lakers daughter went about one fifteen in the morning, and I fell asleep. I'm not saying this microphone, people shouldn't shower. I was just telling the truth when the question was posed that I hadn't showered after that. Basketball game. I'm not anti shower. I'm not a dirty person. And I do shower after every workout when a shower is available to me. I was just being honest at the moment, like, I'm not gonna whack same people shouldn't shower. I'm not anti shower. I'm the saying being honest, sometimes I don't shower after basketball game go to work the next day. I'm not proud of this a shower this morning did a little workout as more showered seven zero five in the morning after long workout shot the payers bootcam-. I don't know why this is so controversial because you don't want to don't like people pilot on you know, it's such an easy thing to do. Like, no one's on my side. You know, what I was gonna call in and be like, you know, what you call. I appreciate how honest you are. I appreciate how open you are with the audience. I appreciate how you always tell the truth. And you always you always living. How you tell walking. Like, you talk it like the male one fellas. Lebron those voice as a compliment yourself knows. Meal on me dirty dirty sending me gifts on Twitter too. I'm sure we got probably fifteen thousand voicemails about how dirty I have eight thirty. I'm honest. I had to be dirty that one day when the question was asked. You're welcome audience. You're welcome from. A couple of things I think the caller south to mill town got it. Right. And basically what he said is you should shower after every major activity. I'm not on the occupied. Here's you. I hear you wets in poetic about the facilities where you play basketball. Let me just tell you something just because you don't shower at the gym like we didn't do in high school because the Detroit public schools didn't have showers really for the role team to us. Yes. You would throw your jogging suit or whatever it get back on the bus, then you would go on the bus to your car or your parents car. Whoever was driving you home. But at some point of the night, you take a shower before you go to bed. That's the whole point. They don't try to couch it by acting like oh, everybody in New York City knows that when you play you hang out with shower. So Dan what you're saying? So if you know that you're going to go have beers this ignore that. There's a team full of people at your local bar that just got minutes playing basketball. And none of these twelve guys have taken a shower since early that morning. What's the name of t? I'm telling you the truth. You know, I'll start lying. That's fine. I'm switch of us are line. I want to take everybody for calling in and tell me how dirty I am. I wanna make sure ladies call in nine eight five eight zero Jalen and leave us voicemails. We'll be back tomorrow. Was that cares?
