"Into the ends a lot of people are that thrill with the rookie year of Dave McCumber actually a pretty good year if you consider their offense of line in their play calling everything I'm not down on Dave Montgomery at all did he lighted up sixteen games only that light up no I'm not they had a few good games and that's it okay you want more acted a hell of a lot more get back to this game today the reason why I gave everybody across the board such a low a low grade coaches players everybody folks this game today we played against the Vikings of the offense and defense of side of the ball these kids have never played a set of downs together let alone a quarter I have had never played a game together in their lives did you hear what I just said they had never played our first string offense a defensively when Adam to the nail every play and these kids who have never played with each other this was their first game on both sides of the ball and they took us down the last second of the game that's why I give my poor great the play a bunch of kids if anybody one should give up good also they should be those kids they never played together not a down a real down as a team and look what they did they took us all the way down to the last second of the game before we finally kicked a field goal to win a game of which again we only scored one touchdown again we never scored a touchdown in the first half against kids that have never played together before able being because let's bring because in here because he good evening welcome to the final show of the season my friend good to hear you my man you got it happy holidays to everybody and you know it is your right we now know that our bare squad can be any backup squad in the NFL we know that Hey it's going to be a dog fight but we could be them because what you think about and that's what we've learned today and that it's embarrassing well you know what else to say it's a mercy what did you think of men now you going for it on fourth and one call in a sneak you're up eighteen to six you're on your own forty four yard line I don't understand what he does number and so I I don't even want to comment on that you know I just rest my head and I just try to figure out the they announced immediately he's the winningest coach in the history of the bears he's also because the score the least amount of points as the office of coordinator in the history of the bears and Dan and this is in a league now were you the premium is scoring points you score points to win go so I I don't know you know in this and let me just take exception with the quarterbacks technique on the snake it was bizarre he was it was almost like he didn't get did you know you got it you basically have to wait like a half a beat and then feel the surges and then get down and follow it was straight up it was a again everything you don't deliver gold I don't know it but he's a quarterback coach what is he doing all day the plan but video games I I mean this kid has not progressed in any facet of the the the position now in three years it is it bad just sit you know great there eight mate if you're happy about being in a day then you know it's also a great but this this is not a good team and it's a it's a whole rendus often horrendous the what Landis on the defensive side of the ball you look we look at this statistics from week to week except a Rick Santorum this could be Kaski that came in when Smith went down I'll tell you what what a ball player this kit is and a lot of heart and I think well man I'm gonna tell you something you you want to let people goal you want to keep people around this is one kid you wanna keep around does he bring it he's they're mentally tough and he's there physically tough and what I was a press the bottom he's a smart football player on top of that he's got great quick this he reacts at the drop of a dime I am very very much impressed with that kid it's not it's not decides it's not as speak what it is is there's a guy that will do anything and eighties all heartened out then he lays out there but even more than that because you're right that you can't make plays like that and not be a really smart football players Rivera was a lot like that Dan what you agree as a as a linebacker absolutely and and the the safety was case in point the the the Vikings backup often to Lyman basically turning loose any ran through and made a beautiful tackle in the end zone for the safety which is the margin of victory and the ball game but two of this this what would you call it red Sox at the head coach offense of coordinator position for a name he and and and again once again the offense that scores one touchdown against a back up defense and a game that we all knew the bears desperately wanted to win because they want to be eight Nate so they could save a little face on almost every level yeah it is you said it was embarrassing it was embarrassing now I want to place a month some clips of the post game comments of navy and the quarterback here a little bit and again it's more the same cycle battle you know about we're gonna take what we did this year and and draw on it and you know keep getting better and we're gonna have each other's back and all this stuff and and I I I for one I don't know I don't know if it a lot of times you can you can I have your nose rubbed in it before you do change if making knows is not rubbed in this then he will never change and what we were talking about we had a caller say Hey do you think that they will change and and and play the players the starters in the pre season and try to you know get some some offered you timing and and tempo and and and sequencing but I do you think he will I think it's going to be strong and say no not not going to change anything because he got to eight may and this makes them all look okay he protected our general manager who has been them out outperformed in outclassed by pretty much any general manager that's still going to have a job in the National Football League he you know but they both are walking around in their puffy chest and now Matt now he's telling everybody he's a when it is coach and US history and that's great if you know you're also the the the worst scoring offense in history the bears and and we've had some bad offenses we we follow we've all been a part of those bad out well me more to you guys obviously but what we do is a bad offenses he's taken to a new level yeah I'm not saying things so bad I'm gonna jump on what you're talking about but we finally get the playoff game last year first time and what eight or ten years at home again plain Philadelphia Eagles in sixty minutes of football at home in front of the fans how many touchdowns of four scores do we score one one we open up this season at home the hundredth anniversary of the National Football League and we played who the Green Bay Packers the dreaded rivals at home in Soldier Field how many touchdowns we score none last week we played our last home game after fifteen games of a sixteen game schedule we play there the chiefs Kansas City Chiefs at home last week how many touchdowns we score none open up the season against the Packers none the last home game the fifty came in here how many touchdowns none how many touchdowns today one how many touchdowns in a playoff game against the eagles last year one and you think this guy's going to change he should be fired yep thank you you're right are you it's not even it's not even a question of liking or disliking but you know Matt Nagy from what I understand he's the sweetheart of a guy and that's great but you're paid to win football games you're paid to score points you were brought in because you were an offense of goo rule and you have done nothing and you've actually made it which is hard to do but he's taken some talented guys and made him look worse and and and by the way it Patterson give the best running back on the team they never touches the football it all your is heated again running back on the team but is playing wide receiver but doesn't that ever touch the ball three one two nine eight one seventy two hundred will will play so Amanda you going back for and we'll take some calls with causes with this to the bottom of the hour Adamo coming up at eight thirty so called saying in our stores we come back soon as we come back okay we'll get right to the calls because he hang in there seven twenty WGN do.

"On the text line five six six nine zero Jeri chime in in what a motley crew we have here this morning I got the Broncos winning twenty one to ten you hear this up with your predictions five six six nine zero so breaking the streak their mace twenty scoring over twenty points yeah. Hey look if they get to twenty one points against his bears defense this is like getting to thirty one again somebody else well a special rules apply if you get to twenty one points on this bears defense you automatically win it doesn't the rest the game is is just played as a as a formality yes. although we're talking this way what what if we get this over one thirty shoot out absolutely nobody. that's what's going to happen. at this defensive slug slugfest or whatever and it's going to be forty one fifty one because both these coaches know each other and it's it's it's gonna wind up beat reporter wind up looking silly all of the bears offense aside the ball over and over again the guy that the Broncos defense kept pointing out was to recall Anders Chris hairs of that a lot of up in the backfield outside receiver. slot so there he's all over the field jet motions of so he's kind of like how we will we have to pay for tire hill you got to look for him everywhere so he's gonna be all over the field we gotta be ready from special linebackers and safeties where where he's going to be at because he runs a lot of rounds out the back through my end Donatello yeah this is because a very explosive athletes great hands can do about any thank you can jump cut he can be an effective back in the backfield so for effective as a receiver he can play as a slot receiver out wide really can get the top speed and in an instant and I asked about him he's a tough tackle because he's he's short and compact so you don't want to talk and you got to get down hello hit him square in wrap him up yeah I remember those time we talked about the bears offense last year with wow look at all these weapons once the added trade Burton and Allen Robinson now we don't know about tree Burton officially I don't expect him to play if at all but we don't know officially I'm sheen of course is the tide in generally speaking we talk about opposing teams offense is we have to start with the tight end because most of time the Broncos historically struggled against that tied in third Waller by the waves can of spike a football not when they're Benjamin says you told me last week he would not be a big factor that's not what I said so we don't know anything about so okay as seven career receptions I did you should. I did say Tyrrel Williams would be a big factor felt like he was. so just like in the football ability pick this thing up headed back into you to try again I'll I'll write Courtin sudden on ahead of back but anyways so wide receiver to circle let's get to why everybody keeps talking about to recalling. well me new skis versatility. he brings more to the table and just. you know being a running back affected which he brought that component of it to the table these days because it seems like they're just using him as a slot guy and one carry that ended up being wiped out due to penalty in that game it looks like they're they're mostly using him a kind of transitioning him to more of the receiving role almost like feel Riddick you know kind of that's about all to better comp right in the middle faster certainly more face are the faster than yeah you're ready but that's kind of the role that they're using him in you know kind of that that motion out of the backfield running back slot back you know that kind of thing it's it's just kind of different because I had to re can be a decent running back he's been diesel running back special use month outsides almost race plays on the toss play you know get him outside getting in space would create hell make guys miss so I I think they're just trying to find ways to getting the ball but I'd like to see him in the mix of running back there as well course the one thing you're concerned about with him as the fumble so put the ball on the ground he last year you had more fumbles than any other non quarterback in the NFL with seven. wow. this is what you're you're trying to strip the ball point the ball out he will put it on the ground. I gotta be honest three Colin is is a concern because the speed but. like to think about week one we were just talking about what we learned I also learned that the bears really need to be given the ball Dave Montgomery more. yeah and that's what I'm all that if we're talking about things that we have it's been a lot of time on this week it's what if the bears finally realized after watching tape going boy demagoguery might be our best running back and we barely really scratch the surface with him maybe we understand this game is going to be kind of low scoring and we just make it David Montgomery kind of game that could be a problem for the Broncos yeah they had an insistence on going with Mike Davis in that game even though it wasn't really working Mike is at his best with a complimentary third down kind of back in the in the book or a role for Broncos fans I didn't really understand the game plan at all running burning Mike Davis in the teeth of a a very good Packers defense just is not a recipe for success at the end you know Matt Nagy for all the things that he does too as a has a penchant for kind of outsmarting himself many times and you see that it felt like that last week I think Broncos fans are hoping he continues that trend this week I I don't know I think you got to give the ball to Montgomery let's let the kid shine I would think you would have figured that out based on just watching him coming out of Iowa state in drafting the third round in the preseason do I mean it's like what is he done that made you feel like now Mike Davis is a better option. well this is where you sometimes get trapped in the maze of saying war in the intellectual basis saying well one players better in practice than the other one plate you know maybe Mike Davis I'd know in those little more and more about the offense this that and the other sometimes you have to play the guy was the better player the more explosive player and if there are mental mistakes along the way as that player is learning the offense learning by doing you just have to ride with them knowing that the upside is much greater with Dave McCumber the Mike Davis so the bigger concern would be Montgomery or court call in for you the bigger concern for me would be my company agreed E. it I think the you if you're the Broncos you look at this defense you look at the tape against the raiders get the running back running down hill again it's it and honestly that's been the knock on financials defense his whole career a plane Abril is only that leaves you susceptible to the run unless you have incredibly instinctive linebackers this defense but a lot of stress on the linebackers and honestly it's a week it evens out my Max in the end the week area for the Denver Broncos I like Josie to I think it's a great run for a guy like Todd Davis the person he's on duty Corey Nelson's real nice guy but in the end those guys are not top tier elite linebackers in the NFL in the same way the daily Trevathan who by always one of us covers linebackers in the game and rogue one Smith was all world talent are and so that's that's kind of the problem I think if you if you've got the ability to come down hill against Denver you're going to win and I think my camera gives the the best opportunity to do that well I think it's Montgomery's well you mentioned the quality of a what the bears have at linebacker compared the Broncos can date survey thing you could argue that maybe in that front seven he's the six or six seven the best player on the bears in the bears front seven if you put it in the Broncos front seven probably the third best. again. like we were talking about. all fair Vic Fangio didn't have the components early in his time with the bears to do everything he wanted to he was able to improve them that if their improvement defensively from twenty fourteen to twenty fifteen it was a quantum leap because. in the Mel Tucker Marc Trestman years that defense was awful for Chicago and Vic Fangio did a good job finding the duct tape and baling wire in getting what he could out that dean twenty fifteen but that was a multi year building job interface in was one of the key components prime in twenty sixteen free agency of of starting to get that defense on his feet starting to get to do what he wanted to do that's why this year I think the Broncos D. it can be good it can be a top ten unit but it's not going to be all of what Vic Fangio wants to be probably for a year or two and I would expect to be shopping and sat on at inside linebacker in free agency or the draft expiring miles has to happen what about the receiving corps you have al Robson is the the clear cut number one guy you've got Anthony Miller you got Taylor Gabriel and it probably is going to be Adam she gene is the top tied in considering free Burton still dealing with a growing injury so of the those guys Benjamin who concerns you the most and is there a point to where you expect one guy just to sort of get his like say Hey look al Robbins is gonna be targeted heavily there there's we just got to be able to wrap them up when we get around him but we don't want to other guys to get going yeah Taylor givers you stretch the field guy he's got speed but but he can be neutralized the ties best if you're pressed him all bloody kind of struggle to get the jam Allen rob cities the possession guided the millers kind that they receive I think the X. factor here just coral Patterson I don't know where he's a guy who says you know you get him going across the feel of the drags you get him in space any great especially these one on ones that a lot of his own djaverages can afford you I think that he could be a X. factor in today's match up I'd be concerning three Miller in the red zone. that's where he's most effective seven touchdowns last year on only thirty three receptions he'll make play he'll make plays down that point the field of people at the bears drive I think that's the that's the best option among the right wide receiver corps for Mitchell Stravinsky I am shaking it was a division to tight end Hooper athletic but you are definitely playing the long game with him he remains a project that being said even though it was a different scheme as she seen in those practices last summer when the bears came to Denver was making place. part of what we identified as a huge problem for the Broncos in the twenty seventeen twenty eighteen preseason defending tight ends it wasn't just Traber damn she he was making plays and I think the Broncos are still construct going to find the right match up there specially with price Callahan likely down and they may try septem sheen on Isaac Adam in much the same way the raiders table Darren Waller against the item for the Broncos learned some lessons in those matchups I'd like to believe so because Darren Waller eight and was often especially the first half this seem like they did little better job in second well you you can't put a corner on a guy like that you you pretty much have to put a safety on a guy like that because he's too big into physical and had just take advantage of you but sometimes that's what happened to me Chris Harris you remember the first game he played extensively after you came in late against that all things it was twenty eleven they play the lines and your and the lions are setting it up to where Chris Harris junior is working in the slot he's staring across the field from Crossland scrimmage from either Calvin Johnson more Tony Scheffler who had a big game that day as well so it's a something to eat you try to set up against a quarterback is still finding his way if the bears do that they might get some big plays for sheen three oh three seven one three eighty five eighty five our phone number five six six nine zero the text line gonna come more text coming in we'll get to those Broncos game day brought you by Franklin D..

"Although I just talked to hamper the sort of filling goes a long offseason. it was and you know right off the the the start here it is such a pleasure to be back in the studio with you the car man and the legendary interpret events in our dear friend. going because Lasky but you know just to kind of get things kicked off your guys it was two and a half months ago we had the one hundred year bear celebration where are you the legend Errol brown a **** in front of a crowd of thousands basically. told came Hicks one of our favorite players on the team guess what. there's no more rebuilding the time is now let's put it all on the table let's see what you got and last year it was it was more than the orders it was job your playoff run that unfortunate we don't know how it ended but this is the hero baby this is the year no tomorrow well tell you what Danny you know you the old adage you know the heroes are point in the right direction and you got a ownership you get management and you've got the coaching staff and the players that they're trying to read through everything and and it sounds like they're ready to go they're ready to go and I can tell you something what a way to open up to twenty nineteen season. here in Chicago whole. a hundred the anniversary one hundred years of playing football Chicago Bears against the dreaded Green Bay Packers on a Thursday night and the whole world will be watching and you guys on that team and bears coaches you better have these guys ready okay last year it was there for the taking and you let it slip through your hands okay not anymore not anymore meet the challenging coming September fifth at eight PM and take the Packers down and crush him. Glenn Kozlowski good afternoon to you Sir you know I don't know how to follow that up because I still always miss that passion and gag that is great that we're all on together again honestly you know you you as we start getting older now and I know you understand this better than anybody but it's just good to hear everybody's voice and that's important when it's all said and done right a look at that a little cool by Yom. before we get into everything but the thing and you know it's a new NFL. I hope to hear the ready but we don't know what the government so you don't play at all this year. it is one of those things and and I know we've talked about this this is a new NFL and the only team that seems to still play players are the New England Patriots and quite frankly they're not very good so why would they do that I don't know. no one. what and I think what you're alluding to is the fact that. I'm not the you can go another hundred years. actress has value. even the preseason games they have value now matinee he the new yeah the second year coach of the bears is basically decided to pre season is it is pointless it's that they don't they don't have any use for and obviously the fear of injury of whatever sort you know cam Newton springs an ankle in the whole league rolls up in a ball and and get scared I I I don't understand it but I'll tell you this because in our private phone calls. O. V. is is adamant about this one thing Hey okay meant that he wants to reinvent the pre season temple of football and that nobody nobody plays in the games except for the the scrubs trying to make the forty fifteen forty six spot on the team well okay that's fine that's good as long as opening night you go out and you close the deal now that's what everybody is gonna be turned in to watch well you know there are a few things and and and I hope Nagy's got this thing dialed in right from week to week not the weekends when they played the four exhibition games but I'll tell you what again I hope yes it dialed incorrectly because Glen as something this is something you can speak to offensively in the passing game and this is about all things being equal okay all things being equal. the most important thing in the passing game is timing. and the only way you can get that is by playing in real time. and then since we don't have we didn't actually go there the the four exhibition games. and is this league pass the league absolutely so I hope now he's got this figured out what it is but again and not to talk in circles I think all things being equal I would say gland that's the number one thing is timing on a pass the route that is vital. no hundred percent ad and it doesn't happen because. you go at eighty percent or what you think's a hundred percent in practice because you know you're still trying to make the squad although in today's NFL guys that are there are there and everybody else is just battling for those last few spots like Dan talked about but. there is there is value in time and there's value in a young quarterback and you know going into the second year as a starter under system anyway I should say a system that is going to be second year starter in. that you get timing down and you know they have gotten better at wide receiver now I'm tired and still a problem form running back is neutral mail anything neutral I don't think they're worse I don't think they're better than they were a year ago but the way they run their offense. so long as the little guy stays healthy cone they'll be fine because it is a deacon Dunkin murder colon or not vertical but sideways kinda offense where you wanna running back that can catch it out of the backfield but well I think there's a lot of optimism because and Dave McCumber the third round pick there's first traffic this year right I mean this I mean it's hard to tell because it. you know you're it's it's not you know a lot of teams are following that same weird logic to not plain starters and I don't understand that you know I I saw the game or Camden sprained an ankle but yet I saw the forty what is the sixty two now Tom Brady help they're still fly so I mean you know whatever I mean here's a guy that has won more Super Bowl than any quarterback in the National Football League and his coach has the common sense to still run the starters out and still play and they have a formula and they used to say right now NFL that. be all it's a copycat league well nobody's copy cat in the best team in the league and they've been the best for the last decade to say this what what twelve years now fifteen years they've been dominated the National Football League and. we do a lot of different ways tech last year they ran the ball and I I know you did it is a patently but last year the patriots gotten several because they ran the ball so just for the right reinvent themselves all the time just for the record the New England got eighteen seasons in a row where they've been over five hundred they won the AFC ten straight years they've been in the last eight AFC title games and Brady's going for number seven this year okay and just remember this and nobody thinks there's any value in the preseason game apparently anymore well guess what remember two years ago when the bears went to New England and they had orchestrated practices against each other okay that's a lot of drills and you know you do a little I don't seven and you do some pass rush on this one at the conclusion of practiced on two consecutive days when the bears. basically it left the field actually I I guess it's been three years now because Jay Cutler is a quarterback all the bears to go in the locker room okay Tom Brady and broadcast you go to one of the end zone and they run a series of about twenty. choice routes at the end zone getting their timing down and the last time I checked they were about as good as there's ever been on the planet and yet at the end of you know day for five in the in the pre season they're down there doing extra work now all those all those factors are you know contributing to the fact they have been great they've won ten straight divisions and because they know the value of timing and work and and being you know. concern with precision of the offense now we hope we hope this offense and and you know it it's hard time and what we have to talk about your biscuits some point but you know it's high time for today is going to make the next step we've all talked about that up until now beat he's basically been a construct you know they wanted to be the starting quarterback and always this thing is that not so fast he has to make the next step for this team to really become a bona fide Superbowl contender and not only that up until now that offense is really the star the play calling the offense in game plan the system we have that this is systemic you know the fact that they they know how to get me match ups and and take advantage of all that has to you know that all has to fall in place on Thursday night with virtually no live work I don't know how they plan to get it done not what we sure hope they do the market I know we got to go to a break here but you know this is one thing that would make you have to do I take it back to things stop grabbing true best ski on national television week after week pulling them over talking to a woman hugging him it is there about one minute before kickoff because you're on national television my god if that kid hasn't figured out and if you haven't coached them up by that time just stop doing that you want to talk to him talk to him in a tunnel talk to him in a locker room don't come out on that football field and put the charade on number two. let that. play football let our offense take over game and be dominant the last game we played here in Soldier Field against the eagles it's a team we could put twenty eight points on it. but they would let this kid have his way. no cuts on first quarter touchdown second quarter no touchdowns third quarter we find you score touchdown late in the fourth quarter and we wonder why the hell we lost the football game because our kicker double delight a field goal it never showed a cave down of that decade should have been over what that halftime. let's take a quick time out come on back your mid season form of the pre game show which is there's another pre game show by the way coming up on Thursday night but this is our free to the pre getting ready for the season. by the way I I I haven't seen all be since the double door like I think you I think you actually you're doing the Benjamin button getting younger thing you look like a I think it doesn't look like seven years younger ample absolutely. just a little while you're free Google or cash. there's a lot I I have my motivation. break you're gonna come over more touch. were old school nowadays they don't do anything a prison whatever to pre season. games that's right. even me and out to dry I I also I I do well I we are getting our timing down right here I also want to mention that Tom Brady just see you guys no always Selleck he's been playing at length over there the previous thrown twelve passes is eight for twelve in the preseason played in one game. that is twelve more passes that ate a but I just want to have that are running the world the world championships they they have they have. you know the way. only through toll passes okay thanks mark. and just what. I just want to get on the way you guys kind of late about celebrities playing every nicely thrown. they would get their timing okay. I was starting quarterback. down in the preseason..

"You guys Kevin I know but a big night for you last night as the bears started their pre season so what have you have you recovered from being out at Soldier Field hi every covered yes I am very exciting just excited for balls back Brian it does last night conus football though I mean yes there were giant men in pads they were on the gridiron there was a score it did take place in a professional football stadium or any yet the really just a glorified scrimmage writes a glorified scrimmage it is and and you know for the bears it's it's almost a good thing that this you know since earlier John that this off season is almost been I don't know of borings the right word but it's it's a low key uneventful right but it is all good you know is it everything's kind of what a positive vibe to me really the obvious story line is the kicker situation but outside of that pretty much every position is sat right you have a lot of talent all around the field so it's been sort of different than we've become accustomed to with the bears where it seems every off season it's a state they're horrible what what are they going to do here coach a coach right he's never to be able to do it yeah the whole thing is awful there is some continuity this right you know you feel some momentum with this team so it it was it was good to be back at Soldier Field no I understand if people are excited we we we will get into the specifics of the game a little bit later but it there were some promising things you know David Cummings guy I've been saying this is exciting bears fans are gonna fall in love with this running back he's one of those look we love running backs in this town right long line of history of Chicago Bears running backs and he's it's sort of back that you just kinda love if you're a fan of football one if your friend bears obviously to he doesn't go down easy he breaks tackles this isn't this sort of offense with Matt Nagy they have the three running backs right right you MC either calling themselves Colin okay right yeah and David McCumber is running this way you have the number to call in and and Davis so DMC hello it's so it's gonna be kind of spread out with all those guys they're all going to factor into the office but if you did want to look at like a traditional featured three down type back that's David McCumber he's a guy that can can pretty much do everything he can catch the ball he can run routes you can run it you know AS between the tackles so I I think people are going to be really big fans of Dave McCumber I think the challenge now is going to be for now I get to decide how much he wants to use him in right preseason you know best running backs get hurt their running backs do right then the shelf life I'm running backs in the NFL is not long right most only last a couple of years because of the the beating they take so looking at six touches last night he made an impact on just about every time he touched the ball including a great touchdown run from seven that's plenty this contest was the big the big one big one yeah that was a nice that was a nice move so he is an exciting back and I think you know for me I would be just fine if every single one of the regular starters doesn't play single snap in the pre season I know Mitchell basically played three snaps yesterday but that was three handoffs they really just wanted to tell you panic each time we got the ball somebody's gonna bursting through the largest and this is it or weird slip on that you have because it says non contact injuries that scary yeah yeah wait why is he hurt nobody touch them and you see some gruesome injury but yeah I think for met dad you said he wanted me it's just kind of to get in the mindset of prepping for game day see wake up prepare like you're starting the game so just kind of get some of that stuff but its terms of the with it when he was asked after the game would you a coach would you be just fine if the next pass Mister risky throws in a game is in September fifth and he goes yeah yeah if you just nothing wrong with that we'll get more that we're going to keep our eye on the white Sox because they are they are playing now on the on the radio where we are on the stream is very exciting good to see gender salvo Jen we have we usually we only see each other on the holidays this is not the fourth of July so it's good to good to see you on another day nice to see you too I'm happy that I'm working with you before the next holiday yeah that's always good yeah it's always nice to go summer's almost over LOC at Christmas time that's when we roll through and and Kim is here so we're gonna do everything there's been some they're working on some technical things in the news room everything all right in their camp we are up and rolling all is good it's very nice so this is good rona taking the day off I I am X. it had an exciting week this is something I'm going to just bring this up and ask you guys if you've done this we went axe throwing the other day yeah I wanted to do it it's on it's on the list of things to do it is fun we took guide got my wife and I can maybe you're at this point to we don't my wife and I don't give each you're trying to to give each other stuff anymore when it comes to like birthdays because they're they're just too much stuff yeah we like to do fun stuff or take a trip yes exactly experiences are much more fun so I aid for her birthday in July a given restricted to go axe throwing because Kevin when you've been married for twenty seven years that's kind of romantic thing you do like you don't come at you does she have a picture like the you know the the dirt poor but somebody's face Hey since I'm on the way to the axe throwing she did make mention of the fact that what if she you know happen to spin and slip and throw the accent me if that was going on so I was I was a tad nervous as we got there but no and there's no there's no faces on the board is just a regular bulls eye but no booze involved right no drink no not at this one this one didn't even have this what did didn't even have the ability to buy like a bottle of water it was very bare bones I guess I didn't you know there these places are opening up all over here and so I was on one of these websites living social or something I saw it I was like okay this isn't too far from the house will try that one he was very bare bones which I guess is fine it it's just the stalls with the big targets and then the hatchets do you already have size and recommend it was a fun it was great so how good are you I'll be honest gender you don't want to upset me if I've got a next Monday because I've got no I will say there's two different types there's the smaller hatchet you throw was single handed and then there's a bigger mid size not quite an axe but bigger than a hatchet the you do two hands and I was deadly with the two had to throw is there a certain technique you have to use are you just hurl at the well you could use her let but they they give you like a ten minute kind of instructional talk when you start and there's you know certain way to throw at you let the axe to the working you're kind of just pivoting and letting your weight come forward and you don't throw the axe the axe just kind of leaves your hand and flips and if you were if it hits a certain way that major standing too close and if it hits a different way it means you're standing too far so you have to kind of find your sweet spot but wanted man when it makes that fill it in you it syncs right in as for the eyes I saw a video of someone throwing in the way the axe hit the board it bounced right back at the guy yeah we we had a few of those dates here with my wife my daughter myself and that that's one of the things they teach at the beginning listen if the Expos back catcher let the X. go where once there don't try to stop with your foot that's that's the kind of stellar instruction that you get before you start throwing ads expert recommendations is kind of what you'd expect get out of the way of the access pretty much it I mean I I listen to the guy and I seemed like I was paying attention but in my mind I was going to say I think you're just to Kevin yeah that's what I was gonna do anyway you know coming at me a beautifully I'm pretty sure we had it WGN radio recess at one of these places that before and I just decided not to go it's fun though I didn't think that anything good will come out of me having an axe in my well as long as there's a it's long as you're not all liquor it up now I could see if we you know if say we did a happy hour and then went to throw actually don't need liquor to be clumsy no we're all really no you're far enough away it would be okay you would really have to try to hurt yourself I think you know or somebody else because there's a big red line answer don't don't cross the red line until the axes are thrown and your you know your alter its like bowling only with a deadly objects yeah I remember it was rose birthday a couple years ago and we were gonna go axe throwing is a shell nice Prester Jeff had set it up for a class in row classic roe Conn show fashion we went out to dinner first and we were having a few drinks and then we were like we can contact throwing anymore no you can't three that's it that we walk to we wandered across happy happenstance we pulled up to the actual in place and it was right across from a brewery and I didn't even know that was like Hey look a brewery so we threw axes and then we had our beers which was a good idea this year I don't go to the bar before we did we made that mistake you to cancel or extend plans reward yourself with a beverage afterward and then you can you know then you can brag much like a Kevin you go to the nineteenth hole after around so you can relive your great shots you can brag a little bit you can bust each other's a child you don't do that beforehand you don't it will during Yasser that's just to stay hydrated right well I got to beat the heat somehow you know you know it will you know you'll feel it in your in your throwing arm but I would recommend I say if you want to go really want to do it's fun then the guy how how long you go for is this like an hour now we had a ninety minutes okay some and rose again and it is a kind of rap yeah well it's like you can play a different kind of games we were doing first one to twenty one then we did kind of a cricket game that I made up where you had to hit every every number and then there's a little blue dot way up in the corner that's ten point catches so if you do that and I will say my daughter Molly beat me in the cricket game because I had everything and I surrounded that blue dot about eighteen times and my axe hit that blue dot five or six times it's so much that it gouged out part of the blue dot and it would not stick.

I sent a striker before he gets a horse yes not the plural of but I'm not able to go there all right let's just stay out of that I will live what I want to talk about is at Joe's currently got the odds of said so fun going down I I'm trying to be aggressive I want him to go have you're going home that's all I'm calling for if the the fun runs down to nothing for replenishment I'm and that's what I've caught on and you're with me yeah I take the typical audible that's right my good friend Adam Levine who's sitting next to me right now yeah I'm seventy five percent in the twenty he is three quarters I get twenty five percent less sixty easy so that be sixty eight essentially right now he got sick would you say sixteen seventeen years left also that's the fifteen all of it so sad to

firing you know I need him not to be has his gun shy right now so what I'm worried about that's what I'm worried about I need him to go ahead to your goal do you do you take your your stand based on what what I was gonna do like do you like to follow suit is he set the tone he's the told he's the captain of the ship he is the camp says we're gonna go port we if we reverse all legions we're going to reverse all ages sounds like somebody spent some time on Lake Michigan last last week it does that yeah Starbird side boys let's got all the nautical terms now have you were relying on me to function with all of the nautical terms in your life was in jeopardy you might as well just jump into one of my question is the poop deck is it a real thing in my house is right certainly yes yes you be surprised of the activities that don't go away yeah you're right I'm shocked shocked and appalled I think it's par for the course is you know exactly favorite part of the voters did being a I do love the thing he you by doing the whole boat when your service got the man who can smile as the man with wild with his shorts are too time comedy writers preseason game right shell shocked afterwards how could nobody like that talk to Chris black I said how could nobody not like that apple doesn't like it well can't Blackstone is the case it isn't funny because it's too old I'm like it so I mean maybe were I mean I know yes but I feel you got to put yourself in the mindset of note which I understand context to why things are funny or why things aren't funny but if you please yourself into the contacts I think you're going to enjoy the movie a lot more I get it's a it's a movie from the early eighties right but if you put yourself in a context where enjoyed yeah you got to go on the way back machine allow yourself for a seat on the way back machine since my name was mentioned you gotta watch it now because I think many are just assuming it's still good go watch it's almost like a watch it's a terrible I'll give you another movie from that kind of maybe even earlier is is animal house funny I think it's a layer the space of early eighties but any any good you can still relate your own college experience or whatever to that and you'll find ways to find it funny because it reminded of something this or not yeah fig go further I I I get it I mean you have to your right would you be okay with the remake of caddy shack sac to was awful and that's because everything is I was told while this earlier everything's on like a twenty to twenty five year cycle right we recycle everything right this this was popular Beverly hills nine OO to one OO popular nineteen ninety two we're gonna re boot that with everybody who's still alive to be able to reboot the hallmark in the American still watches that whatever you do don't reboot anything listen I I agree I agree with you but I mean I'm just asking in the modern day all of these reports would you be comfortable with that it's going to be on the Disney plus in which case reboot everything watch it three times subscribe resubscribe with animals I mean I never even thought about pulling the farm Liebowitz yeah so you so I find it out you'll read the paper that somebody had passed away you pretend like your your her boyfriend in the end up going out with the room I mean for you to think and act yeah if that's not comedy genius I don't know what it is in something I killed exactly okay yeah Liverpool is taking the lead in the eighth minute of the match is this the first premier opener number one how many on Sunday with the Chelsea Manchester United nice that's what it's going on I'm sorry I was gonna say of dollars gonna be sees a city guys immensity got Miller's over there he doesn't even care what we're doing right now a lot about the show his eyes are glued in one place welcome to our as we say in the soccer world he is a supporter of liver the vernacular rate very well done but I do actually like the sound of carmine do Jornal like that I think she still I'd say it sounds very good gentlemen we got our own goal to just so we know it was an old on no team in the yellow the team in the yellows got the youngest player in all of the P. all right well that you want yeah I was just watching it by the way Norwich city nor nor which I I thought it was Norway that was normal it's an interesting right so Adam you were at the game he did the game last job thank you buddy Dave McCumber is probably the best part of the game for the bears wasn't one of the highlights I I think he's probably at the top of the list in all honesty and and and just because I know people are going to make comparisons or they're going to roll their eyes in any comparison that's made but I did appreciate that somebody I saw somebody make the comparison I like that levy on bell and I'm not saying he's lady on bell but the patients that levy on bell has shown over the course of a pretty successful career that's probably been his his hallmark right that's the thing as a runner that we appreciate the most about it I think that's one of the most valuable things I know you do too as a running back in the NFL and David Montgomery showed some flashes of that is first game against some NFL defenders that's a positive it's a good thing that stuck out to me the most in terms of actual technical I think what we will so I think what we saw was the reason why they decided to get rich or think Jordan Howard for his time in a bears uniform in appreciate him but went in a different direction and I think now that now he's got a backfield that fits his scheme whether it's Mike Davis it's three Conan the way they're gonna use him and now obviously with David Montgomery he's got the back see once in his system that's three backs that have versatility and all spots matter Montgomery's a great pass catchers well yet three catches last night to his great pass catcher for Matt Campbell's offense I will send their state let me interject this he's going to have to clean up his past pro because if you're going to play in this league if you're going to be a three down back you're going to have to that's something that I am sure he will but it's some he'll have to fix one thing just a just a just one thing we did bring up on the broadcast last night that I I because I thought the same thing here that one play where you know the the center got be pretty badly I it almost looked like Montgomery was just trying to back up the center who got beat on a on a plate picked up the first call as Jim Jim Miller said the first color he saw he had to take it and they're happy to be next to Russia that was on tight so I agree with you I want though is one thing that I don't think a lot of people get Jordan Howard enough credit for Jordan Howard did an excellent job in respected in pass pro but he obviously overall didn't fit what you guys think when you guys are watching what's what's that got to you guys Montgomery did I lie I appreciated Ron Rivera icing the kicker yeah me too I really did Roque once Mister good Blitzer we saw the last we saw again yesterday I mean in in a car might think that's what's if you could say if you said tell me what Chuck parganas defense is going to look like it's going to be that they're going to be opportunities just like that for a brook Khan Smith to do that your co said he could he reached double digits I was that's on almost all right yeah forget there I thought six to eight sacks was good but you're right Johnny he made me he may exceed that it's been the chance and when you've got a game plan for that you know you got to be wary of what's happening in the middle that lets those outside guys maybe get up field a little bit more before the guards start paying attention to what you're gonna tell me this if if Khalil Mack is gonna get game plan for more often made over gonna see more chip in more double team or whatever does that maybe Khalil's numbers go down.
