What they're saying: Philadelphia Eagles, Wentz or other teams — who has the leverage?
"All about away. Bought away by the way. The miami dolphins got their guy. I just meant they got us. That dude is they got a guy young guy so let's put some. what are we talking about. Let's put the question. Then this way. And by the way i would say this right now to are coordinating producer. Pete mcconville and our producer. Allie grenade. i don't understand how we do not yet have a feature called jeff saturday. Who's high this week. I mean every week jeff. Hester name that's got to become a tuesday stable. Is this week. We make a segment out of everything on this show but markets very quickly. If the dolphins get forgetting about guam if the dolphins get to shawn watson are they the biggest threat to kansas city in the afc next year. Yeah they are. And i know i say that because i saw were buffalo did. But i'm taking the sean before. I take josh allen and their defense. I'm taking miami. Defense with the sean. Look the inspire football. You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem

So let's let's talk about some of these guys This is our like extended Darlington updates, slash paint scheme preview for the to this weekend. What is Oh at first? Okay. So at first. When I saw, you think there'd lightsabres. Whatever they are I want them but I want to solve the double zero car. It was a smaller picture and I thought that was because permit texts even the tags like a sealants like gaskets and stuff like that. but I thought that was like a man like mowing of fields or something in now that look at it closer to do chequered flag a flag man. Lagman Yeah flagman Jimmy Flagman. So. Thirty, six, Marian V. Eight roadster he I think it's kind of weak. Very weak. Yeah. Because it doesn't look like a car it's just looks like any kind of weird t shirt you buy at the beach now and we are we're it'd be disgust break has to car we. Week. three car for Austin Dillon, which is a junior Johnson scheme. That when we talked about last week to where the like putting the American ethanol that way on the hood, it's like I get what they were trying to do. It just looks weird on. The. Little. Retro, are CR. Logo there at the bottom. Right below the headlight. That before it's a nice touch could catch their You like the Ford car, I'm enjoying it I'm just okay on it. I enjoyed a lot. It's covered in snow. So that's cool. Red If. Newer part of the paint scheme may be even better. There's still I mean there is still in the mountains but I mean little fluffy fluffy bits. Uh. Six car. seven car. Good I. Think's good. It's okay. It's been done. So many times before though, let's say Tommy. Baldwin senior throwback to. His. Old, school car love the car love todd tolerate doing. With the radio, because the colors are just so bright and different and it the colors themselves even though the logos don't mimic the colors themselves mimic that that Jeff Burton car. Yeah. All right what do you think of the nine car? That's? First of the Jimmy Johnson Tributes Yup I like it. It's not bad. Yeah. I think it's okay. I think it's terrible ten Carlton Carson go bowling. So I'd like to I'd like to ten car. Wow where I like bowling I like the fireball Roberts. Nod. I like the I. Like the rows five, fifty horsepower on it. Yeah. They did do the yeah. Because a little that little blip in the paint scheme Kinda mimics the the the fender counter of the Ford. Yeah. All right now. Yeah. Not Unlike that scheme that's okay. Then we get to Denny Hamlin with the eleven car. Love it. I have so many problems with this. Time so many wrong. All right. So that is not I. Don't know what paint scheme they mention Kailua borough. Not Kill Yarborough paint scheme on VAT. It's the. Numbers. That's all it is. That's all it is, and they were seventy-three. Kelly. Albro and I was like that's not not. It's not even like the lining in everything. Yeah no not only is that not kill Jabre seventy-three paints can therapy. Did they Kailua seventy-three paint scheme in two thousand fifteen? Counterpoint I like the I like the Federal Federal Express logo is really the throwback there in that is pretty cool. I will give you that it's kind of like seeing like Piedmont or something on a Very disingenuous that they said not this. But like you look past when you peel off the layers onion, the federal express the old one looks pretty logos pretty good the Ryan blaming. The Ryan blaming cars that Paul Menard Arca car I liked the paint scheme I as a throwback. It's all right. Yeah. It's it's A. It's a good regular pants game. Yeah. It's a good regular paint scheme What's the thirteen car is thirteen is Todd Bodine running the championship series for Germain racing. Go. All right. It's okay. Yeah. I'll give them the I'll give them I'll give them credit for that ties within. The fourteen car peak you know it's it's just another peak scheme does not by far the best peak scheme they've ever done. It's okay. Yeah it was and it's throwback to a cop car and so of that I like it because they're at least keeping the idea alive that you're supposed to not throwback was a winter. Yeah. All right. So We didn't talk about. The Brandon pulls a tribute to the Ricky Rudd car. I think they did a great job on that one I. Think you couldn't have nailed it better. Honestly like this is a great great looking car it's got the Remember everyone deploy thing on it. It's got the number schemes the paint scheme down. It's got Terry Taylor the Red Rooster from the WWF and they're. Everything. You could want in a car. Yeah. No, they definitely did it right there and the numbers are really tied together and he did the numbers spot on. It's a damn shame early going to see it for ten. Exactly, I going GonNa do a damn thing. It'll be fun fun under the lights always that car will look good on lights by the way. Yeah. cowboys, tribute to himself. No. That's right. No, you're right. It is you're right it Elliott Elliott Elliott Sadler. Either way Elliott Sadler has four tributes. All the series. So he's once he must be rolling in the Bank I. Guess. Yeah I forgot that his alley soundbites eminem's so because of that, it's not as interesting. Old Row. Sheets Font. Yeah. No it is. Yeah it's OK. It's in the middle for me. It's not great. It's it's not the best, but it's definitely not the worst Martin tracks. I think that calling out the Hank Parker junior that that part is good but I think it's an excuse just for them to have the regular sponsor on the car. Whatever it's not great. Twenty Car Eric Jones doing the Tony Stewart scheme. It's okay. I I don't. I remember that Tony Carving Shiny though was it not shiny I think it was he has little crummy. Yeah. I again it's one of the it's one of the paint schemes at wasn't all that all icon even though that's What it looks like a regular sports clips game. Yeah. Yeah. So it's just okay for me Twenty One doing another twenty one scheme. But I mean the it's hard for them not to have a good scheme right? They've been around for one hundred and forty. It looks good but it is a throwback to themselves. twenty, two, twenty, two car I. We didn't talk about this one but they did they pretty good job on that thing. Yet throwback to a bobby. Allison's Nineteen Miller car But I like the the the Star I, like how incorporated the star into. I think so I think. So because I, it incorporates it enough to make it happen. Yeah. William Byron Twenty four cars got the the second tribute to Jimmy Johnson of the Jimmy Johnson schemes. This is the one that does. Yeah, it doesn't stand out to you the most. Looks like a liberty game yeah. Yeah and and just like you were saying about the Tony thing even though we're talking about big name driver and he won a championship in the car the. Yeah. The racing stripe warm wasn't a very iconic forty eight scheme. then all may get jj l. e. come on this was a late entry and immediately hours like holy crap I think they might have won the whole thing here. The nurse throwback to Kenny Irwin in nineteen ninety seven again shamelessly for ten laps. It is it's going to be a shame..

"Yeah. That's pretty much. The end goal is like you blew your chance because you're an idiot we can't Jeff Gordon this thing and just like advance everybody that the final race just because yeah, exactly. So To to to show that's what it is. I thought you were going to say something silly like he said, yeah. Well, you know what if we have something like that we're just gonNA, take the eliminate the lowest finishing lowest points and then we'll read. Or take their average and give them their average you know. Twenty twenty six races, but only twenty five counts. So right right. Yes Oh. Yeah. I I think that that's the right move because there literally is nothing else that you could do that would be fair. Yeah. Like you said you, you shouldn't have to move heaven and earth for exactly and you know there was interview two day. I think it was with Kevin Harvick as part of the playoff build up and Kevin was kind of asked not necessarily about that specifically. But about what he's doing and he was like hey listen. Sunday is important. I mean I gotta be there. We've got a race and a WANNA keep racing, and so he said I've literally changed everything in my life go to the grocery store. We we order the stuff in it's delivered. We don't go out we don't do anything drive my by myself. In the rental car to the track by myself in the rental car from the track and you know I'm doing everything I can to ensure that I don't get sick because if I get sick, it's going to jeopardize everything and that's Kinda I mean that's what they gotta do and whether that sucks are not as relevant it just is suitcase. Yeah. It's kind of bizarre like I, mean th. The dedication and it's GonNa take and I guess the the. You know it's one of those deals where you have to be smarter in like some of these players get it and something like football players all get it because we're like, yeah, we need to we need to be able to play. We need to know we can't do this. Now we can't go out after games. We can't partied it at a da now like you have to have that kind of discipline. Oh, absolutely especially Nascar where you know the point stone go to the team they go to the driver when it comes. To you know the driver championship obviously and what substitute driver if Kevin Harvick asset if you still want the owner championship, what driver you're GonNa put in there, that's realistically going to help you win the driver Chaim or the owner championship I mean nobody you go get Greg Bethel but what's he gonNa do sat out forever. So it is the stakes are so much higher nascar and pretty much air anywhere else outside of you know a baseball football hockey team losing their big star you know that's that's what will be like. what else we got and then he said that development is resumed on the next Gen carbondale Trevor Baines can be racing this weekend. Hey. Good for him. You're for some two thousand eighteen I wanna say I have the notes in front of me. sounds right. Yeah. But so good for him. It'll be in the truck series number forty truck open does well. Yeah So yes. Brings us the Darlington man and at at. that. So I jotted down all of the Darlington throwback schemes that were announced since our last show. But do we WANNA do that way or do we just want to scroll through him all talk about? Brother, how are you hang on? Let me get him loaded up here. I. I went to the to the Blinky to get the full they have the full at least for the nets choir. Let me. Let me go there to then you know once a cow. you need that anymore..

"What they do with the position has more so how how they can help us win a championship and I think the quarterback position generally sears teams more like I mean more toward look at teams that are in the Super Bowl's generally you know I think that there teams with quarterbacks who? Who are worth the money that they get paid? I mean you've got some certainly some exceptions there, but generally speaking the reason we're paying quarterbacks is not because. Like I don't know I, don't I. Don't think it's about the position I think it's about. We always here. For example you can't don't running back so it's not worth it, but if you go up and down the list at highest paid going into the season. You Know Julio Jones how many Super Bowl wins. Does he have at this point? You can go up and down the list with with safeties. You can go Khalil Mack like you know clue Mac and I regret the day that my beloved raiders traded him. What's done for the bears? I Aaron Donald? How much so? At some point is the argument. Actually don't pay anybody. Well the argument is you win by drafting well, and that's in this instance. The checks drafted Jamal Adams. Well, you win by getting guys. To succeed on the rookie deals when they're more affordable and that's that's that's why they need to benefit from Jamal Adams first contract, and and the the idea of paying now just makes no sense to the recipe of what it takes to win. The NFL I get you have to pay Patrick Mahomes all this money at this point, but generally speaking. That's not the case. That's the outlier. That's one of the greatest to put on a uniform so. So the idea of paying a gun atmosphere year. As the panthers did with Christian McCaffrey and the chiefs elected you. Patrick mahomes quite honestly is not what you WanNa do the team. You WanNa get the most out of those rookie deals as you possibly can. All right so I'll leave you this. Which Mall Adams in the jets you gotta? You GotTa Bet. If if Jamal Adams. If you're right on this, you get your own private beach in Florida. If you're wrong, you got to move to like the middle of nowhere new. Mexico that's that's the only way on this Jamal Adams playing for the jets this season. Think play at the end of the season. My guess would be holds out. He seems like he's very staunch in that. And I think that the I think Joe Douglas and Adam Gates. Put their the ground. Say No. We're not trading that. And we're not paying you so I. think that it is hold out until Adams. Season and all of a sudden. We're sitting in a love young bell situation. See. I'M GONNA? Love hanging out with you on your Private Beach Jeff always appreciate your insight. Nobody does it better. My friend thanks for hanging out with us, they say. For sure. I, take your take on ESPN. Radio ESPN IS I love that make everybody wager most arbitrary things when they come on the show.

"No contracts, no compromise. Now users wear usually. Take you directly to I. Take and we'll get there in a second because there was an important guest today Gerald McCoy joined first-day, and he talked about Jerry Jones and the responsibility to speak out on social issues. Before you hear from Gerald McCoy, the cowboys star before we get there though I wanna talk to you a little bit about what we figured. Figured out yesterday in this conversation because I put up a twitter poll, we put it up originally as a question on twitter, and we had such varied responses that put up a poll and flat out, ask you. Do you want to hear from your favorite teams owner? Sixty three percent of you, said no sixty three percent, which is a huge question to me because we in the media, step back and we say wait. We've got to hear from Jerry Jones. We've got to hear from Robert Kraft. We've got to hear from prominent, NFL. Owners Why? Who are we to give that sort of an edict out to any of these owners that they have to do something? Just because we say it's a right thing to do now. Do I think it's a positive for Jerry? Jones to speak out if he's passionate about this movement, Hell yes, do I think there's huge platform availability and opportunity for owners to speak out, and it can be great for the conversation that we're all trying to. To have right now ABSA freaking lutely. Do I think those things? Yes, can I impart the fact that I think those things onto Jerry. Jones, no because I'm not as customer you are. I use the word customer intentionally instead of Fan. When you're a fan, you're spending your time, but most importantly your incredibly hard earned money to support a brand to support a team when you do that, you then get to decide what you're willing. To to support. That's why I've continually told everybody. We've got to stop asking owners to change lease step in, and we've got to start making change with our money. Because when you start spending money or stop spending money on somebody because of what they do, don't say that's the ultimate power. I'm going to do something here. I'm going to listen to you because of you to ask me twenty four. Four hours ago I told you I believe Jerry Jones has a responsibility to speak out because he can do because we've heard from him so many times in the past on issues in general, however, now that I've heard from so many of you and you overwhelmingly disagree I'm willing to evolve my thinking. I'm willing to step back and say maybe the way I see. It isn't the same as. As the way that so many of you see, maybe in fact, you don't want to know what your favorite owner thinks so that you don't have to think about it whatever your reasoning is. It doesn't matter if it's your business to support if he's speaking to his actual customers. Isn't that all that matters now? The question is who are Jerry Jones customers because in some ways he has a responsibility. Responsibility to his fans in some ways I believe that he has a great opportunity to do incredible things for the community, but put that aside. Then you also have to say what's his responsibility to his players, and that's why this is important. Gerald McCoy joined. I take to talk with Stephen and Max about Jerry Jones and the responsibility that McCoy Fay's. He has to speak out on social issues. With everything going on. Well, the Stephen Likes it or not. The most recognizable franchise in the world is the Dallas Cowboys. Okay, so when a situation like what's going on which has been going on, this is not new is not. It's been going on, but now it's been brought to major light with the tragedy of George Floyd people are seeing. Is this really what's going on this has been going on. This is not new. You're just now seeing that. This is how brutal it really is. Well, you have a franchise as recognizable. The cowboys people listened when they speak up and. The owner Jerry Jones who is one of the most recognizable figures in sports history when he speaks, everybody listens while I think at this point in time. I feel. It will be great to hear him. Say something positive or say anything you know I. I love what he's been to the sport. He's been excellent to the sport of football. He's a hall of Famer. At this point is bigger than football, we need him to speak up about life. This is about human beings and equal rights, and it's not what's happening, and it will be great to hear him say. Jared I appreciate you saying that and all jokin Assad joking none. I got a lot of love for Jerry. Jones, I really really do often. I've heard a lot of great things about him. Over the years I've gotten to know him a little bit. I'm very very fond of Jerry Jones, which is why called The Dallas. Cowboys and I call ridsdale ripple, still waiting to hear back from them, because my whole point is I'm looking for Jerry Jones and I'm not gonNA. Let it go because it doesn't matter to me what he says as soon. As it pertains to Capitol Anybody, 'cause you entitled to your feelings, but you can't be as magnetized or as attracted to that camera with everything else all these and then get quiet now. I know you spoke out. What level communication do you believe the Dak Prescott of the world, demarcus? Lawrence is of the world people like that. What level of obligation do you feel?.

Start of the day add. Add to come to the front again or try to Best we got with seven so tyler junior. Now we're talking during the race about your line you and how you just mentioned it. Run highlight and wanted to a lot of people. Run the high line in the middle of the. You're running it on the exit until you actually use a lot of racetrack up kind of no man's land if if you got two or three inches too far out you're gonNA hit the wall. How are you so confident to run up there at such a young age? Well Great Valentine's in the simulator? We tire out of the tires. It Brad Miller of it actually didn't slow the car down that much and it actually felt really really good. I was really surprised that even worked in the simulator and obviously we all know de Hamlin makes a credible amount of time even more inexpensive expanding cars than than a cup car but with today star fall off that we saw that line came into play really early and I was almost scared like what Danny likes joke about is. I don't want to use it too much and show my hand but it was so Dang fast at times that it was it was it was hard not to run in it but we definitely for sure about halfway through the race made a few wrong adjustments and it allowed everybody else to catch up to us but I mean I got braces Darlington race. That long it's going to change more than I've ever experienced there an xfinity car so that was. It was definitely a challenge today.

"Who's on your MBA Mount Rushmore Tristan in Pittsburgh? What he got man. Who's on your MBA? Around Mount Rushmore Jason. So when I think about the NBA. Rushmore I think about the best player the best winner the best coach and the creator of basketball. So I've got Michael Jordan. The Best Player I've got bill. Russell is the best winter undoubtedly. I went back and forth on the best coach but I landed on Mike Chef after some thought. I think he deserves that title after all accolades. Then obviously James Naismith goes on there for creating the game and really laying the foundation for what we know. Is the Greg Abra Basketball Trista next for your take? If you just said those four names to me I would have said you. Lost Your Dang mind but you explain it so perfectly. I got no argument with that. There's a real structure to it. I mean some people might argue the best player but I I wouldn't personally so the logic makes a Lotta sense. I'm all in on that. Best Player winner best coach and the creator of basketball. Like that's a heck of a way to do a Mount Rushmore. End Kudos to you for acknowledging. There's only four faces Mount Rushmore. We're still struggling that on twitter. Kenny and Kentucky. What you got. What's your MBA Mount Rushmore? Yeah I'm I'm not suggesting that I didn't know if he meant NBA general but as far as players that they're telling the history of the game. You have to start with Magic Michael Lebron. There's no question about it. Starting in nineteen eighty and as far as the celtics from the sixties instead of going with Russell. There's too many hall of famers on that team. I'M GONNA go with our back and I think the Mount Rushmore looks great but the one has coach and three players like that. Take a lot Kenny. Because you did a smart thing with the Celtics. I feel like this again. I'm going to go back to chop you smart thing with that ingredient. Because I can't figure out how to quantify those celtics teams because there were so many hall of famers on it they were so dominant. They were obviously incredible and I never really watched them play with any context so taking the coach. There is a great way to do it. Obviously that's a smart move by a lot of you guys want to. Chime in on that end apparently fired everybody up when it comes to deck see. This is why we talk about that all the time. Everybody asked why you'll get fired up about it. You guys seem to want to Chime in. Chime in on it. We're GonNa let that happen so triple eight say. Espn eight eight eight seven nine. Three seven seven six.

"I'm still convinced that the cowboys don't give a damn about the fact that none of us appreciate their time line but we'll get some insight from it from one of our best. Espn NFL insider. Jeff Darlington joins the show now. Next time I feel like every day that you come on any show you have to immediately asked about tax so in your mind. What is the latest that you know attack? What you're saying is pretty spot on. And it's my opinion while we do certainly talk about it every day that That the cowboys intact like if they don't have a hard deadline like they're not gonNa do something just because we're all in agreement or disagreement about what should be done. July fifteenth to me remains in has been the deadline That we should be watching and I think that there's any reason why either side going to cave until that date. I mean go in negotiation. You try to take things as far as you can take them and July fifteenth. I should point out. Is the day that franchise tax players can continue to negotiate beat long-term deals? If you don't get it done by then you can't do it into the season. So that's the date that we should watch and the one thing. I'd say though it's I'll tell you every time I do say something that's like pro cowboys or pro. Dak or anti cowboys. I get texts from the people on each side. Essentially telling me that I'm wrong. So it does feel like there is definitely some resentment that exists on both sides so as much as they want to act like every site is right. It's very clear that there are still some dissension and still some separation that needs to be closed to ESPN NFL insider Darlington Jeff. I hadn't entertainment attorney years ago. That said you know it was a good contract negotiation. Both sides left the table a little unhappy and it just sort of the week things go so I asked you if it is a term or limit. That's an issue here. If the cowboys WANNA go long term and wants to go shorter so he can get paid again. Where is the middle ground on something like I don't know fits and the other problem with that is? I don't know that that's entirely true. That's feels to me to be too simple and I understand that that's not. I'm not saying that anybody who has reported such is wrong. I think that it's actually dead on if you're taking a one sentence wave coming up what the problem is four years or five years but it feels to me when this is all said and done that we're going to look back and be like. Oh that was the real catch and and and I think both sides are smart not to completely negotiate through the public but it just feels to me like if that's the only thing they they would find some ground to to figure it out But to your point I mean the simple again. The simple macro perspective is that if you want four years instead of five you have to give up money and maybe doctor saying well. I four years at the exact same price that you want at five years and that seems to me that that would be a pretty pretty major sticking ground. That probably won't get solved until you have a hard deadline which I keep coming back to. Swipe fifteen which means we get to talk about it every day. Until then right yeah. The other problem is that there's just nothing else to talk about so I understand why We're talking about it and we continue. We will continue to do so but at the same time I do not think that that impacts the negotiations themselves. We're GONNA make a drinking game out of it by the middle of the summer. Espn NFL insider. Jeff Darlington joining the show. So Jeff let's go to the other big topic. Obviously everybody's trying to figure out what could be what might be especially as we look across the board of the corona virus pandemic and how others Other Sports Florida Governor Rhonda scientists has said he wants professional sports to come back in the state. So do you have any sense at this point of how the NFL plans to react? If certain states are at different levels of their openness when it is time to start reporting from from my conversations with people around the league and both Ronald Reagan and who worked for the week One of the big issues here is the competitive balance and that is going to be something that continues to resume through summer. So if the Sanchez says that. Hey we're open. If you can't find a place to play can come down here. That's all well and good but it's still going to have to be complicated. Factors here are rams for instance still planned to hold training camp in La County and if that becomes something that can't happen And the rams aren't willing to go to Arizona what happens then. There are so many every single question that we can think we have an answer to and I know that this is being politicized right. Now it's such an argument on one side of the other but every single question that we think we have an answer to there's twenty questions behind it that also require answers and that to me is what makes us so complicated over the next month or two. It's not simply if it's the state of Florida's open and can invite teams there to play Shouldn't shouldn't that answer the question? The problem is the NFL still saying competitive balance. These even across the map and the one team isn't comfortable doing that. All of a sudden. How do you answer to the rest of the thirty one? Thirty one dollars. Espn NFL insider. Jeff Darlington joining us. I take your take. I'm Jason Fitz on. Espn radio. So I find it interesting Jeff because we've now started here at least from one Major League Baseball player that says I won't play for less and we have to acknowledge that the players have the opportunity to stand up until Talk about what they're comfortable with. I just don't know the answer to this. So what level of sort of power do the players have in the NFL deciding what they're comfortable with? I don't know I mean again. It's like we haven't even gotten there yet right like we're still talking about whether we can let people into buildings or not and how many people can enter each facility. I mean and then all of a sudden it's like have we even thought to ask the players what they're comfortable doing now the NFL in in their defense has been a very good job with the protocols that they have laid out and required by teams to follow which they sent out to all executives last week. To say if you have to you have to have all these components in place before you can open your facility and it seems like it's a very diligent Proposal on their part but to your point when you start saying to a player. Hey you gotta come in if that players not comfortable Here's another factor. That's GonNa come into play across the entire landscape the idea of an unsafe workplace and the litigation that comes from that. And if you don't have Proper like I mean that. That's that's a major thing and I'm safe workplace whether it's a restaurant or team and if you don't have proper protocols in place what happens then and that's with the players union certainly probably comes into this but on an individual level. This is going to get very complicated before it simplified. Espn NFL insider. Jeff Darlington joining us. Right Jeff we buried the most important question. What do you think of the rams new uniforms I I? I don't know why I don't care more about uniforms. Funniest thing to me in the in the world of sports on twitter is not the is not the contentious nature of things like corona virus or the American flag. It is when people get so fired up about a uniform But Wrong Jeff. You're not wrong I just I you know what I liked the helmets. I'm just I like these coming up. I'm with their I I. I'm okay with the helmet swap helmet. That's all we can ask for. Jeff Darling did jeff is always man. We appreciate your time hope when years say thanks for hanging out with this getting the insight there from Jeff and you can take any one takeaway from everything he just said. The the answer is maybe. That's something I keep saying. I'll say on every platform on will the deal get done probably will there be NFL season. Maybe I mean we just can't have set answers to all of the things that you guys WanNa know right now and I understand. Everybody wants to know it but unfortunately it's just not there to be had yet. Look I think the DOC deal is simple? It's GonNa get done before July fifteenth because there's no reason not to but when you look across the Board. I have absolutely no problem coming into all of this and saying first and foremost. Let's be patient. Don't forget tune into the conclusion conclusion..

"The poll plays at lebatardshow. Does Tom. Hanks need to purchase the bullied. Corona kid a laptop instead of a crappy typewriter. Because that's something that Roy was saying during the break. You're not helping a kid. All Tom Hanks's doing there is getting a whole lot of public credit for being wonderful and giving a gift that is not in any way useful to old corona even though he like the old typewriter is unique in being named Corona and it makes him special. Typewriters also pretty useless a right. I mean typewriters and not even pretty useless right at this point isn't a typewriter simply useless. Yeah which is why I think tanks got rid of it like it's just one less typewriter. He has to deal a while treating corona like goodwill. Okay just needs to get rid of it. So he shifted where where for maximum publicity on this on positive publicity. Can I ship this crappy corona typewriter? Let me send it to that bullied kid and see if Hollywood variety all right about so tom. Hanks collect typewriters. And a lot of these typewriters hard to find. They're not making typewriters anymore. Actually have a lot of value. Depending on the model this could be worse several hundred dollars or at least the price of a Mac book Bro. So I've got here is Jeff Darlington last night and this had the scare the hell out of Chris Cody. I'm curious how he experienced all of this because he was already. You saw stu gods as a Dolphin Fan. He's a dolphin fan and it was a real hopeful draft and the only way they could have screwed it up to not get to for their fan base. The fan base absolutely wanted to but there were a lot of bogus things being said lies. You know they're going to trade up for an offensive lineman they really like Herbert Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah and then right before the draft. Jeff Darlington tweet. The following based on my latest conversation my mind is officially blown on potential of what might happen with the dolphins and I no longer trust anyone and I don't like anyone and I just want this to be done because now I feel like Russell Crowe and a beautiful mind and I don't know what the real. So Jeff Darlington shook. Chris Cody at his core because Chris was already scared like all of this just lent way to the are they not going to do the most obvious thing. They're really gonNA screw this up by doing the wrong thing. So how much fear did you have Chris like you didn't you? Were what kind of state by the time this draft pick was made..

I'm gonna make lots of trips that buffet line to. I'm not going to just get one one plate in in call the day i'm gonna get <hes> plenty of servings all right <hes> darlington his the lady in black the track too tough to tame all drivers whether you are a rookie or a champion you will earn your darlington arlington stripe on the right side of your car. The place is shaped like an egg. Due to a minnow pond that of course couldn't be disturbed and apparently the architects and building planners. Don't take to move the tracks slightly over a little bit because i don't know <hes> weren't too smart back then right. The preferred line is about an inch from the wall. Maybe even less which <hes> to you and me probably insane not not so much for kyle larson. That's kind of what he does. It all tracks very true. What be funny about the minnow pond. Thing is if back when this was actually happening. They went to the guy and said hey. You're minnow pond will be in the way of our race track would be in the guy. We'll find out so it to you. This fine ticket and they're like no no no. We don't want to buy it from you. We wanna make a racetrack track was really hard for drivers to drive on so you just act like you wouldn't sell this minnow pond land to us and what is the way we want it. That could be <hes> that'd be. That's the real story i would. You should research that you seem to do that. A lot of drivers are going to be asking tires. It's a less abrasive than it used to be but still still getting more abrasive each year that goes by correct and we're going to get back to those old days where it's just spitting out tires left and right that's right. It's a one point three six six mile egg shaped oval banking up to twenty five degrees front and back stretches are equally distant. How can that be with an egg. Well bristles has proved it as as well all right <hes> cup race five hundred one point three miles three hundred sixty seven laps stages one and two are each one hundred laps for the final stage ending on three sixty seven unless there are bonus laps green white checkered etc. That's true last year's winner brad kozlowski sporting that cool rusty wallace paint scheme sunday monday night race be aware of that. It's it's sunday night from darlington six p._m. Eastern n._b._c. s an awesome awesome stuff. This is going gonna make good one. This is one of my favorite ones in the year. I'm jazzed up man drivers doing the darlington dance with the lady the whole thing. It just seemed creepy there but you have to admit it's well written and i guess i'm gonna begin here. I've got a reason in my head where i think i know why. I'm going to be beginning here but yeah. We'll see if jimmy johnson's the last one this list and if that's the case i think i'll be right kyle busch number eighteen driver jugs racing. He's had a heck of a season. He's got a win here. Three top fives nine top tens an average finish of eleven point six b k brad keselowski has a win three top fives. Five top tens a pole average finish of eleven point three. That's pretty good. How about kevin harvick his a win here. Seven top fives eleven top tens two poles and average finish of thirteen point. Oh he's is gonna be a big buck hunting this weekend. Marsh rex junior has a win to top five six top ten's average finish of eleven point three as well dinnie hamlin the man he's.

"Is over <hes> people on f s wondering the pre-race for the race todd bodine and jeff hammond. We're already throwing him out of the sport. Wow and now all of a sudden. You've got a second life here. The the charges have been dropped. There's is no no criminal infraction here by will you'd imagine he's going to be on unsuspended at some point very soon so someday gonna know who he is. I mean i think you should know who is now. We've got no time so <hes> real quick matt borland. <hes> has some sort of weird drugs and his coffee or something and it's a diet coffee which i've never heard of because it's coffee only has five calories to begin with and now he's been suspended for substance abuse yeah so what it boils down to. There isn't ingredient in the diet coffee. He'd been taking uh-huh some prepackaged. Did you just say balls down. It boils down to de bowl. I think you said balls down here in another throwback spear with sterling marlin stuff so bogus more like larry mac all right anyway so it all boils down to <hes> the fact that there is a ingredient inside the diet coffee drink that was prepackaged aged is on the nascar. Don't take lists as far substances concern so yeah. He was popped on a drug test. I'm a rabid coffee drinker. I have never heard of diet. Hi it's coffee. It's some kind of thing. That's supposed to be like supplemental coffee so it's got things they're supposed to help make you cut weight and stuff. Whatever the case. I'm not sure what the deal this probably has more calories than real real regular coffee <hes> but yeah so berlin said quote i have worked in the nascar garage for twenty years now and i've never been a part of anything like this in my life if i take full responsibility for the incident and wanna get it taken care of completely and quotes so now obviously he'll have to participate in nascar road to recovery program to be reinstated right all right well. This is the weekend nascar. Fans have been waiting for darlington throwback weekend. If you missed it we recapped a bunch of the paint schemes in the previous segments. Go check that out if you missed it <hes> crazy hair costumes by the t._v. People crazy everything actually crazy paint schemes <hes> as the years of piled up with this marquee event more or more teams are participating. I remember used to be just a handful of cool paint schemes and even jeff gordon participate and then he was regretful and all that other stuff but anyway expect a visual visual.

"The drivers and they're like twelve in the whole series stories while the you know what you should do just eight to one because the top eight or in the playoffs and everybody else is out so oh there you go. They're not all bold so that what's the line there in the middle. They're trying to cut off gotcha yeah. This is throwing me for a loop that they're actually started the playoffs. I mean why they start early. I don't think he realized until the show started there in the playoffs. No i did i did. I just didn't know all the intricacies of it so all right in one tyler ancram on the outside looking in johnny solder this is weird on the outside looking in and then you got the fancy blue line there so the top six <hes> grant finger austin hill matt craft and stewart friesen ross chastain and brett moffitt leads by twenty two. That's that's a really coolest. What do you think increm- though i know i know he's a rookie. He's in the very last spot right now not looking like he's gonna transfer. Do you think he can get the win at las vegas workers in carry first time. I've seen the name. Are you serious. I not possible. I don't follow the truck series at all. Well just to kind of put things things <hes> on there for you at the mile and a half kentucky speedway or in the year. He won his first career truck series race. He's also had decent success at other mile and a half tracks this season finish third texas <hes> thirteenth chicago eleventh at kansas <hes> in six texas earlier in the season as well so he's had some success <hes> at the mile and a half tracks this this season. I don't think he's a bad bet <hes> as we go towards las vegas. That would be a really crazy thing to see taylor angry rookie kind of upset. The playoff standings there. I've heard the name i really haven't seen it in print or anything and seeing his stats and that's pretty impressive. I guess he's pretty good especially for a rookie and he wasn't doesn't set for full-time season early in the season. He wasn't running all the races because he wasn't eighteen yet. I should <hes> request them for favors. Yeah that would be interesting so china about yourself. Nothing about you. Enlighten me. That's awesome so <hes> all right. There's your top ten or eight or whatever it is we did when does he. You start their playoffs. Isn't that soon yeah. It's within the next couple of weeks. It's not the same as cup. Is it now. I think there's a week earlier. Don't they usually but these these days who knows what the schedule seriously who knows. Why would we even look that up now. We wouldn't that that'd be silly. That would just be absolutely insane. The i mean i expect you to know everything so when you don't then i feel better really okay well. I can answer this for you right. After the vegas race the vegas race is the cut it off for the extended series before they go to their first round which is around twelve. Hey up next. We're going to go down <hes>. I don't know what we're doing but something with paint schemes james and throwing back up. I'm not sure <hes> next on w. Wait it's not throwing up. I hope like us at facebook. Facebook dot com slash the final lap. This is the final land weekly <music> cfl w is on my name kerry murphy his name toby christie and we are doing the paint scheme shuffle throwback darlington weekend. I am so excited so one eight different colors. I actually have to pay attention to see where my favorite drivers are. Wow like that. You're gonna pay attention. Well probably not but you know you only have one favorite drivers drivers. It doesn't really matter that's true once. I lock into those colors. I'm good to go right. So are we going right into this without news of the week. Or what do we know. This is segment to dude. Oh this is where you know a a an area that were unfamiliar with because usually there's an interview right here. Oh you're right. I understand now this does this is weird. This is a weird feeling that's right. It's like retreading water without a life vest and it's bizarre would so we're gonna we're gonna kick things off with a double zero of landon castle.

"Better cooler heads prevail and when things are going smoothly into play on it's it's just easier to compete and to win and i feel like everyone on our team. Is we have better plans on monday when we're are looking ahead to the race and we stick to them all week and <hes> like i said a lot of it comes from just having really get speeding trucks makes it a hell of a lot easier so you know it's. It's just everyone working together and performing when we need to you know. I guess maybe we all are doing better under pressure. I don't know but it just is what it is and <hes> <hes> pay windows open for the season right. Now you're preseason. You can test you can experiment. Everyone races a little bit differently but when it's go time in the playoffs it's go time and <hes> winds are all matter like just proved earlier. When you win a race you you wanna talk about it yeah definitely and so you know when we were heading into the playoffs yeah of all the talk was ross chastain. This ross chastain that he's going to run away with the championship. All of a sudden is brett moffitt but when out his chest now the playoffs started and and <hes> i think you're hard pressed to find anybody who stronger than the twenty four truck all of a sudden. That's pretty weird. Now that <hes> switches around i mean you season ebbs and flows and all that other stuff so you never know definitely excellent f._m. There's still a long way to go from here to totally alex tagliani he continues to try these road courses and nascar and keeps coming up short it is but man he's always so close isn't donnie he is and he's such a personality and fun to watch and what a heck of a driver but that's got to be frustrating analyst tony stark with the cool facial hair so he kind of does yeah it. Kinda does <hes> so ben rhodes was <hes>. I guess you'd call at third. Sheldon creed and austin hill rounds out the top five for for the truck series in <hes> canada yep and of course we're in the first round of the playoffs currently brett moffitt now leads the points by sixteen markers over our chastain as this series series heads to carry murphy. What is this las vegas motor speedway on september thirteenth. Is that now right right that. I'm just saying that because you'll be there oh yes yes. I can't wait. It's going to be hot. I can guarantee forget or no. I thought i made a mistake because you know that's that's normal. Wow very self deprecating carry murphy this week. Thanks very high on himself. <hes> which usually he is <hes> taken a different approach. Apparently we're going to see how well this plays with our our listeners. They probably won't like it. The pompous carry murphy our fee has turned into a humble one well but i switch gears at anytime we know trust me we now and then it's all over yes for sure <hes> let's take a look at the <hes> xfinity series points we kind of touched on the the leader there but <hes> let's run down ten to one. Let's go all the way back to tenth which in that series last place at this point <hes> hat john hunter nemechek what's wrong whereas whereas this hour reading this room at nascar dot com okay so you don't have it in the notes here no no no okay then you've got justin haley at number nine michael and that noah gregson gregson don't know then nobody refuses to tell me <hes> chase austin syndrich at number five then he got justin just an auger somehow i mean that guy has had just the worst season ever and he's still forth pretty impressive. <hes> cole custer number three christopher bell to and tyler radic like we mentioned forty five points ahead in the lead there yeah you mentioned the all garre thing it is funny because it has been a total season of frustration for no wins <hes> even though he had five wins ends a season ago and you're looking at you like man. He is just had an abysmal season. He was in the sand trap again this week at road america. Yeah what's wrong with him. But there is fourth fourth in points. I think a lot of guys in the expenditures garage with love this bad season that augurs having as their possible best season ever so <hes> <hes> to put it in.

"App. Are you ready to talk nascar from what i understand dan from talking to you and other folks <hes> we do this talking back and forth and somehow it goes global. I don't know what specifically referencing but yes. That's the the truth. I wasn't aware of that. I thought it was just you and i haven't a conversation and we hung up the phone and that was it some weeks. It feels that way now a little bit nervous okay well. That's it's good. I mean you might actually think about what you're saying this time so it's good so all of this time that was the problem i think yeah just totally one with your jimmy fandom random right just running off the mouth not thinking there's any consequences or anybody listening or anything like that yeah so what happened. Did you get like putting your place this week but something he said no. No i just realized is that it leaves this room. Okay you know it only took five hundred eighty three episodes to to come to this realization. Was there some like event that happened the major realize this or no. I just think i'm colossally stupid generally okay. Hey <hes> been looking forward to this weekend. All year long darlington throwback weekend that's where they go to home depot and and they they loaded their shopping carts with all kinds of different paint and they just chuck it at the cars right <hes> not quite oh okay well. It kind of seems that way. We're going to break down on all of the throwback paint schemes or at least the ones. We like <hes> if there's any we don't like we probably won't even mentioned him. We'll do that coming up okay. There's there's a few in particular like no. It's not jimmy's you don't like. Jimmy's no i do but i mean it's not the only one okay by the way how did he get it to look faded. How did he get into look faded. It looks like his his paint job is faded like in the sun. I think it's that they changed the blue for ally purple okay. It just looks a little washed out to me. Maybe it was the picture possibly possibly all right. I don't think you're quite on board for today. Show at all. I don't know man. I'm still on the edge about this. I'm not sure how to feel about you. Actually thinking before you you speak yeah. That is a weird thing for me. I'm sure but <hes> i'm sure at some point. I'll forget and i'll let loose that's true. That's a good point. I like that so we'll we'll get onboard that the cup series had the weekend off saw some vacation photos and stuff like that they probably you know needed some time off. They've been <hes> you know doing the grind for quite a while now and they're gonna have quite a grind after this off week. So <hes> you know can't blame him for taking some some much needed vacation time definitely definitely but a couple of other series were inaction and they had a lot of work because it was not only road course action but a couple of the longest tracks on the schedule yeah definitely a special for the expanding series wrote america's like four mile just crazy amazing insane track.
