"And get comfortable before being pulled but this second game. Neither team played really any of their starters. The only guys were really thrown out there. Were maybe rookies. That are going to get significant playing time on both sides but overall what we were exposed to was significantly a backup base game. And it's almost as if this was the final curtain call for a lot of backup player so a lot of what we're talking about here are guys that maybe earned themselves a spot on this roster or others that might straight up just played themselves off this team and are going to be a really difficult spot. Come the next cut down so getting to first. Let's go to the offensive side of the ball. I think one thing that we need to lead into and it's something that we're going to talk about. And i think until this rosters finalized is the battle for the back end of the receiver room. There's a lot of names in there. There's a lot of recognizable names but it seems like the three that keep getting brought up dante pettis through cj board. And there's also david sills and we saw some mixed things from from that whole group. They're not a lot of. Cj board but a significant amount of snaps pettus and sills which you can read into that either way maybe get them getting a lot of repse's their last chance to prove themselves or they just want to be able to see what they are fully capable of the way. I look at this receiver position. David sills has been that slow steady drumbeat since the beginning of training camp. He's the one that kind of jumps out to you from the sense of okay. This guy has really performed all the buzz surrounding this individual. But what does he provide outside of playing receiver and that is the big question. Mark yet seven snaps on special teams because they wanted to kind of get a look at him as governor and they wanted to see how he was on kick return as well. I mean. i think he'd be fine That garner position is incredibly valuable. If you're going to be a goner. That's on punt team. You're going down there and try to pin the Receiving team between the twenty yard line. We saw matt cole. Do it against the jets in exceptional manner. The giants acquired kion cross and from the texans. And he's an expert in that field many of cj board who played really well in that role last year during twenty twenty and look at cj board david. Sylvia say okay. David sills probably adds more value as wide receiver but does that value as what a ford v wide receiver supersedes. Something that cj can do better on special teams. And i'm not one hundred percent certain. Does that leads me to believe that. Cj board may have an edge to crack this roster if he can prove to be one of those two gunners next across but the interesting thing is cam brown. Actually step in and plates gunnar la- last yesterday sunday during the game and he had like two tackles on special teams. And it's just one of those things where you're like this guy can't brown played thirteen. Total special teams snaps. He's somebody who can do so many different things for you on special teams that he can even proved to be a goner as a linebacker which is just insane to think about then. Cj boards presence even necessary and then david sales to possibly ross. I feel like there's a lot of moving parts to this. 'cause you also look at the giants starting receivers right now. Could area's tony injured. Golladay injured two giants. Look at davidson. Say this guy's capable. The stepping provide some value as receiver. Those guys rehabs are a little bit slow to come back. I think it's a really interesting conversation. I'm not one hundred percent. Certain which one would crack it. But whoever provides most special teams values going to have the best chance to make the roster between dante pettis davidson. Cj i look at the snap counts and we saw the guys who are pretty sure going to be real. If not starters than impact role players they were on the field and off the field by basically the second drive for each team. The starters on defense they basically were off the field by the browns second. Drive the guys. We think are going to be big role. Players like devante booker for the giants offense. They were off the field by the giants. Second drive so. I think the fact that cj board only got like what sixteen offensive snaps. I think does kind of bode well for him at his position inside of this wide receiving depth chart. But i think the battle is with pets stills they yes petticoat i think. Thirty six thirty eight snaps on offense seals got forty plus those special teams snaps. We know at pettus brings as a bridge as a punt returner based on what he did in college so that does have value. We haven't seen john. Ross out there all so could it be that you just can't make the squad from the trainers table ios. Have these guys already passed john. Ross end pederson sills are battling out for the six receiver spot. In which case he'll still does give a legitimate backup to kenny. Golladay as the only other guy out there who is even close to golladay size that big body that big frame that x. receiver position. We know how important that is within. Jason garrett's offense and he does at that size he's about like what six four six five two hundred and fifty impounds does great adjusting. His body in the air contested catch situations does really good job coming down with those. Footballs and that's very very valuable to daniel jones skill. Set as well something. We saw two thousand nine hundred and what jason garrett wants to do in those isolation routes on the on the boundary. Just one on one match ups. David sills does good in that. Now will he do well in that against actual number one cornerback sitting..

"It's Taylor. Kyle's Taylor coming from me from a dungeon. It looks like now I'm just kidding. How you doing Taylor. I'm doing well. I'm in my friends recording studios. So life is a recording studio. Here we go. Yeah, so like no sounds getting out here in which is great. But like yeah, the lighting is terrible. I'm doing the best I can with my phone like I'm assuming it's a music recording studio. Then there's not a yeah. No, there's a bunch of speakers. Like I'm not familiar with the stuff in here, but it's super cool and it was super expensive. So like I'm not saying anything on my recording studio is my bedroom long as you can see, you know, it's very very fancy. You know, we still got White Walls right now. We just moved into this place about a month ago. So still working on decorating but the Patriots game A game on Sunday Taylor, they might not have a game on Sunday as it stands right now. Obviously, we know the covid-19 prank with doing that. I don't know if you want to call it an outbreak the code issue with New England. I think it's a good way of putting it is clearly the elephant in the room and what's on everybody's mind as of right now. We're taking his head Thursday at around 2:30 Eastern the Patriots are not having practice on Thursday. It doesn't sound like there will be practice on Friday. We might be able to speak with some of the players Friday afternoon if they do hold practice coach Belichick spoke this morning. We're hoping to speak to get him again on Friday morning buying the most the biggest take away from speaking with Coach this morning is that he's really being updated hour-by-hour by the league on the situation. It's a medical a big matter shutting down the facility playing this game on Sunday really has nothing to do with anybody at 1 Patriot Place. It's it's above that right? It's a commissioner decision. It's a David Sills the chief medical officer. Started a league is decision to make so the Patriots are kind of in limbo. They're preparing for this game virtually and that's sort of where I wanted to talk to you about this Taylor just the struggles. I think that you're going to see from a team. That's not likely not going to have they're starting quarterback in Cam Newton who seems unlikely to be cleared in time to play on Sunday. No practice only one practice potential maybe on Friday, but most likely no practice no practice going at the Monday night's game either 4 or Stidham. Now they have to prepare this entire team with a backup quarterback to go against a Denver team that is 1.3. But they're sneaky one and three I think because of what they can do on the defensive side of the ball. So what just a difficulties of preparing for an opponent without in person practice. I just can't imagine how long it hard that is going to be for this team. An important sugarcoating. I think it's ridiculous. I think you know, there's this, you know, nebulous that we're kind of in where there's an expectation that it's the NFL. It's just big business it has table according to schedule but this is a pandemic these are not normal circumstances if there is any time for you to introduce empathy and the little bit of humanity into your business. This is it I think the NFL package is just you know, as we've kind of seen consistently they've gotten lucky I think a lot of points but they've been consistently just poor with their preparation with their execution when it comes to crunch time when they say you have to pay for now preparing very well and we're seeing it with players like we've seen inside the Patriots organization,.

"I think if he can make the team as a backup. It would be a good thing for a kid coming out with some versatility out of southeast Missouri state. That's John Dorsey special. He always throws a curve ball at late in the draft did it there. But no corporate was the first pick in the second round last year. I pick in the second round day to night two. He's going to be expected to be a starter this year and be a key guy up front for the Browns. Kyle in West Virginia Europe. Hey, guys. Mel I was just curious about you know, what you've thought might be the reason that you know, like David sills didn't get drafted. I it just curious thing to me cause it his production at WVU. And you know, what you think the bills are getting out of him. You know, if you think it was just because he he's only really had two years play Madre number. Yeah. I think I think I think the mostly it was the speed factor. I think they is a guy who will make contested catches. He's got incredible hand eye coordination. He's a good athlete. Former quarterback just each just a natural catching the football in contested situations. Is there going to be enough separation? Burst out of his break. I think that's the quick. Can you get open in the NFL enough? That was the question. And the reason why David sills went on got Josh Allens gonna love because he will catching the football. And Josh throws one hundred mile an hour fastball. You better have great hand eye coordination and David sills. Does I think he makes football team? I would be surprised didn't.

"david sills" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"Pat Tillman in Afghanistan Tillman would played in the NFL and left the NFL to serve his country was killed fifteen years ago. But I with the NFL draft now taking place one of the more intriguing players expected to be taken is wide receiver out of West Virginia named David sills. It's a name you might not remember. But it's a story that you certainly will nine years ago five years before he would ever set foot on a college football field. He committed to play quarterback at USC. Tom Rinaldi has a fascinating new e sixty piece that air Sunday morning at nine o'clock eastern time on ESPN and Tom joins us down in the sporting life. Tom what you know, what was it like sitting down with this young man, David sills, who's now going off to the NFL's receiver and nine years ago was offered a scholarship by lane kiffin to play quarterback USC? Let's say everybody to math there, which means that that's right at thirteen years old filter twenty two now at thirteen years old. He was offered a scholar. Shit which he accepted verbally there. Could be no written or truly binding acceptance of scholarship at that age, but it was groundbreaking and they'd all kinds of dues by lane kiffin, then head coaching ereck C, which seems like right germy, so many rations to go up gifting. Oh my God. It's also several iterations ago of David kills himself who now will ultimately get to his goal through very different pack. And that's the plan Sundays at a position he never could have envisioned if you rewind years ago, and we're speaking here we have to be speaking on Tuesday of draft. We by the time this runs this weekend. It's likely that David spills will already have been selected he'll know which team is heading to in the NFL. But what's what's fascinating about? This story time is the fact that here he is celebrity at the age of thirteen he he's been offered this scholarship by lane kiffin, the flam. Bouyant head coach at USC at the time and the ups and downs the topsy turvy of not only becoming the celebrity at the age of thirteen but what he had to deal with having that as he says your piece is bullseye on him as this celebrity going into high schools a quarterback in Maryland, he's from Delaware. I it's it's a testament to his resilience. First of all, how did how did he get offered the scholarship of the first place? So you go back to what seems like something that is commonplace now, which is the age of specialization, Jeremy right where early talent is director. And if people have the money, they pay for extrordinary coaching and attention to be paid to to give talent. But if you go back to more than ten years ago or a decade ago wasn't so common to have dedicated quarterback coaches and Steve Clark's in was. Among the very first to create the industry, it was after David sills as just a ten year old boy had gone to a football camp had won the MVP at the camp is data. Former college player thought you don't want. Our son loves this position. I know it's demanding. I wonder if there's somebody who can just work with him on this crap. He found out about Clarkson, he called Clarkson in his estimating. So father David sills, the fourth called nine or ten times before Cork's would call back persistent adad destination thought, yeah, I'll take this bad funny. He's out of his mind, and then he met the boy started to work with him and saw not just the physical gifts. The fact that he could press that information in a way that shocked clocks that he could make multiple re that he could understand hot Rize that he could go to the second and the third and the fourth option on a given play as. Clarkson created and challenged Mon behold surreal years later monthly sessions where the dad would fly with David out to California, the families, Delaware. These shows some tape to lane kiffin without telling kiffiny age of the quarterback prospect, gifting loves it. And then he's told he's thirteen kiffin says, well, I don't care. All scholarships right now, that's forward to be reaction that ensued. We're speaking with Tom Rinaldi whose story that David sills the fifth the receiver available in the draft this weekend will air on east sixty Sunday morning at nine o'clock eastern time. And and how does David sills go from that point to the point? Now nine years later where he's going to be playing receiver in the NFL and not quarterback. So to turning points happened Jarvi he goes on David to to have a very successful high school career people are aware that he said since receiving a scholarship in the national news that followed. He was on his name was on ESPN call and everything that came with it during a game his junior season in a bit of a free play. He threw a pass and it offensive line and pin sills hand against his chest with alignments helmet. What that did was breaking knuckle it his hand he played through the rest of the game played through the rest of that season. But in order to continue to grip the ball and throw with any effectiveness. He altered his motion when his hand did heal the motion. Didn't it never came back to that pure fluid graceful release that was so excellent mechanically. He still was such a great athlete. Jarvi the ultimate Louis and gets fired you end up going to West Virginia where several of his high school classmates had gone and data holders the coach at the time realizes. Wow, the kids got every single quality. You could want a quarterback except. You just can't throw it very well. And so they put them on scout team as a quarterback, but also as receiver and then the second turning point happens in a defensive backfield. Jeremy that would alter the end up producing all conference and NFL type players. Nobody could cover the quarterback that couldn't throw nobody could cover David still. But he still wanted to play quarterback. I incredible. So not only was he hard to cover. The also understood the offense like a quarterback. He understood what the defense was going to do. And if from the very first game he played a receiver. He caught it. He caught a touchdown pass against Baylor. And even though he didn't recognize it initially at our story tells you why in time he would understand this was his destined position not under center. Yeah. We don't want to give it all away. They're still lot of twists and turns in the story. How? Eventually David sills ends up being a one of the top receivers in all of college football after having spent his whole life setting a goal of playing quarterback in the NFL. We're speaking with Tom Rinaldi bettas piece that's running on east sixty on Sunday morning. But the thing that stuck with me having seen it is. Is the way that you tell the story about this young man who has this tunnel vision this laser focus, and it ends up taking him on a different journey, but ultimately one that might be just as rewarding give him just as much a sense of achievement as the one that he thought was his path in his destiny. What what what's the lesson here? I think two things number one you go back to a moment in the piece where when he presented with the opportunity to play wide receiver. He's worried about how is father will react his father who supported him spent all this money, all this time exhibited all this energy to help support. What his son told him his passion wants he was fearful of his dad's reaction Jarvi. And instead what he discovered I think this is one of the lessons of the piece is that his father. Didn't want to support his sons aspiration he wanted to support his son. And if that aspirated changed that was fine. The reaction of the father really surprised the sun. Like, that's okay. If you don't wanna play quarterback the other. I think the other thing is again, you'll see in the story. He does everything he can. And ultimately finds out quarterbacks not gonna work and as he says because I wasn't afraid to fail. Tom. Thank you so much for joining us here in the sporting life. Thanks for having Jeremy..

"They just said look just create get some separation out there. I still go back to you know, the clock is winding down, and you know, Lillard is not going to maneuver around you.

I think that's a Super Bowl was it. Yeah. When you pick the giants on Letterman that year, I think yeah. What was it about bickering that we had to bump rich Eisen for do you? Remember, we were in Boise piece. We were in Phoenix. Is that right, Paul? I don't think. So I think it was before the Zona Super Bowl. We had rich Eisen booked, and we were only had one segment left in the show that day, and we had to bring him basically, there's some I think Kurt Warner was retiring or something, I don't I don't remember.

I would too is David sills with us for t- shor is he's the former west Virginia's standout and two time first team all big twelve wide receiver and had. I think the what thirty three touchdowns receptions in the last two years, and we covered this back in twenty thirteen or what was it twenty twenty ten? So he was thirteen years of age then lane kiffin offered David a scholarship to play quarterback at USC at the age of thirteen Kippen was fired in twenty thirteen. He was told they'd still honor the scholarship, but by the time that he was. His senior in high school USC had signed to highly ranked quarterbacks Ricky towns and Sam darnold. So he considered other options David joins us now. David good morning. How are you? Good morning good. But so doing, okay, let's go back to twenty ten when you when you got that scholarship offer at the age of thirteen how did that change your life? Well, honestly, I mean, I it at the time. It was so nude everyone, and it didn't happen really that much. So no, not that many people do what to expect and social media wasn't as big back, then and everything and and I went to a private school move it. So I it wasn't. It wasn't like you was you know, a lot of people really knew what was going on. But definitely got a lot of national exposure and everything which you know, really really kind of made it seem like it was it was bigger than what I thought it was. But you know, I it really did change my life a lot, you know, and put me in the situation that I am now prepared because situation I'm in now. But I wondered and I don't like when schools do this to a kid who's in your kid, you're thirteen and you know, they said it was a real offer. But changes, it may not change you as much as it changes. What others think of you? And now all of a sudden there's. Bullseye on you that all you're the guy who got the scholarship and USC I was wondering did it affect your development at all to get a scholarship while for thirteen. I definitely think it put a target on my back coming up through high school. You know, just every team that we were we were playing against the student's section was always, you know, kinda after me and and everybody kinda wanted to take me out. So it it definitely put a little bit of a target on my back. You know? But I I had really really great parents that raised me, and you know, taught me how it's really you. Don't no matter what what's going on in your life that to be able to stay level headed, you know. And that's really what I think, you know, kept me through you know, what the highs of, you know, getting offer in seventh grade, but being able to remain humble with through all of high school and college, but you go from being a quarterback to a wide receiver. How tough was that decision to make because it, you know, here's here you are getting a scholarship at thirteen to play quarterback at USC. And all of a sudden you're trying to figure out another position to play. Yeah. It was it was really tough at the time. You know when I got switched my my freshman year. I didn't really wanna I said I'd go play receiver, you know, and help the team..

"And I really hope that he does not end up in Oakland or Washington, which would be just a quarterback death sentence. He is such a likable guy. And I hope he hope he does really well in the NFL, thanks for the time. Ryan, I appreciate that. Well, here's the thing with. With Cal quarterbacks. We've had Cal quarterbacks who've gone to the league who failed. How many Utah quarterbacks? Can you name where you go? Yeah. Other Utah quarterback. I can't think of any. Right.

Freaky, tall guy that everyone's all over Caleb in Indiana joins us. I k- Leb. Hi, dan. And Dan, are you a Wednesday morning? Great doing. Well. Thank you. So you guys were talking about NFL drafts where someone had kind of risen up at the very end and excuse me. I just climbing up the stairs to class. There wasn't actually expecting to get on this early. And the two thousand six draft Matt liner and Reggie Bush were highly of his being number one of the number two picks. However, Mario Williams came out of nowhere and the Texans picked number one overall and that was fifteen years ago. So that's a good call. Yeah. Yeah. And then this is also very random, but your beautiful new man cave has football place. Yeah. Me, and my roommate actually think we've uncovered for them. Okay. If I guess mccloughan knows the answer. But we're not telling anybody we have iconic plays. You know, what I would do Caleb Email the show, and then we'll hit you back because I don't want to spoil it for anybody else. But we have these plays that were painted by street artists. And I just said I wanna have six of the most iconic plays in NFL history. I didn't wanna put any teams on there or even the name of the place on there. I wanted to see if you could figure that out so Email the show Caleb, and then we'll get back to you. Thank you very much, Dan in the deaths have a tremendous there. All right. That's Caleb, Indiana. Yes, mclovin. How did the artist? Do those were you there when he was drawing? These that's paint. Right. That's not spray. Can it's incredible. The detail that are cdot with these. This is our street artist. Everything's with a spray. Can that's amazing? It's to simply amazing that he pulled those off it looks like it's like almost printed out. He is our our banks. Marcy is our banks and the reaction has been great. And rightfully so to do that free hand with spray cans spray-paint, and I would come in and just watch him. And I had a camera that was on him each time, by the way a lot of fumes. I'd come out of here buzzed my wife, say oh, did you stop for a beer? No. Nope. Just I was in there inhaling paint fumes and had a buzz going on. But I wouldn't watch we had a camera on him each part of the man cave that he was painting, and what we wanted was the time lapse, and I would just. Watch it. I was able to bring it up on my phone. I was just watching paint and how he did it, and it was all spray cans, spray paint and really remarkable. But we were trying to come up with plays. I just thought it was unique. I thought that that was a different piece of art of what a football play looks like and you try to figure that out. And that's what I love 'cause people we didn't want to put the name, mclovin goes. Well, these places have names to go. No don't put him down. I want somebody. If you're a true NFL fan. I've had somebody from the NFL hall of fame trying to figure it out as well. But if you if you look at it and maybe figuring out you Email the show. And then we'll we'll acknowledge let you know. But I don't wanna ruin for everybody else who watches the show with the man cave with these plays that we have up there. Mike and Tampa joins us. Hi, mike..

"Burns would surprise me a little bit. Josh Allen would not surprise me. And the only reason I bring this up is because there's this veil of secrecy that is draped over the raiders and what they're going to do. And they're going to surprise people at four. I don't know. The only way you're surprise me of is if Cuyler Murray falls in you, take him. But then that's not a surprise for you. I guess to take him unless you say well when they got Derek Carr if you go up and get kind of emerging. But I don't know what the raiders are gonna do that they're going to surprises the opponent, the New York Giants that six pick. But then they had the seventeenth pick. And if they wanna wait for Daniel Jones, they have to hold a breath because the Redskins had the fifteenth pick the dolphins have the thirteenth pick. And you even throw in the Bengals with the eleventh pick there. I know they don't need a quarterback with. It wouldn't be a shocker if they moved on. Yeah. They're just so much speculation rumor, and that's where you go. Now, like, the stuff is so crazy. And that's what happened. It's usually, you know attached to quarterbacks here. Yes. Mclovin. So in that ESPN NFL reporters mock draft last night they had locked Jones or sitting there at seventeen and the reporter said the giants like lock more than Jones. I have no idea, and they apparently they like like by way of as far as picking paulie Kapit, Quinton Williams. And that's obviously the smarter picking this situation, but he's not putting any money on it. Like, should we all be taking picks and make some brilliant? If we get them or should we go safe here because it's one thing to say when Williams, but as you're gonna put it put his money whereas mouth, Illinois, if he has to do it where there's a public shaming here. See I'm not that confident. I I think I'm thinking what more so the they should do the cardinals. Not what they will do. I think they should take not take a five ten quarterback. Yeah..

"No start with you. See I was going to say is it is it Zion K D And high rate because I'm I'm pretty in on that. What if it's in Cleveland? No, no, no. It's in Arizona. Arizona's. Yeah, you're gonna go see Cuyler Murray's debut or Zion. Williamson. Bubbly ion. Okay, mclovin. So there's show many more basketball games, I'm tempted to go football for that reason. But I think zion's at all time player, and you want to say, you know, right? Fritzy? Yeah. I wanna see what does ion can do offensively defensively. Bali? Now, the goldsmiths not a diamondback. I would've taken the well Murray, I would too. Yeah. I would too is David sills with us for sure is he's the former west Virginia's standout and two time first team all big twelve wide receiver and had. I think the what thirty three touchdown receptions in the last two years, and we covered this back in twenty thirteen or what was it twenty twenty ten? So he was thirteen years of age then lane kiffin offer David a scholarship to play quarterback at USC at the age of thirteen Kevin was fired in twenty thirteen. He was told they'd still under the scholarship, but by the time that he. Senior in high school USC had signed to highly ranked quarterbacks Ricky towns and Sam darnold. So we considered other options David joins us now. David good morning. How are you? Good morning. I'm doing okay. Let's go back to twenty ten when you when you got that scholarship offer at the age of thirteen how did that change your life? Honestly, I mean it at the time. It was so nude everyone, and it didn't happen really that much. So not not that many people do what to expect and social media wasn't as big back, then and everything and and I went to a private school mood. So I it wasn't. It wasn't like you would you know, a lot of people really knew what was going on. But definitely got him out of national exposure and everything which you know, really really kind of made it seem like it was it was bigger than what I thought it was. But you know, I it really did change my life a lot, you know, and put me in the situation that I am now prepared because situation, but I wondered and I don't like when schools do this to a kid who's in your kid, you're thirteen and they said it was a real offer. But changes, it may not change you as much as it changes. What others think of you? And now all of a sudden there's. A eye on you that all you're the guy who got the scholarship at USC. I was wondering did it affect your development at all to get a scholarship for thirteen. I definitely think it put a target on my back coming up through high school every team that we were we were playing against the student section was always, you know, kind of asked for me and everybody kind wanted to take me out. So it it definitely put a little bit of a target on my back. You know? But I I had really really great parents raised me. And you know, taught me how to really, you know, no matter what what's going on in your life to be able to stay level headed, you know. And that's really what I think, you know, kept me through, you know, the highs of, you know, getting offering seventh grade but being able to remain humble with through all of high school and college, but you go from being a quarterback to a wide receiver. How tough was that decision to make because it, you know, here's here you are getting a scholarship at thirteen to play quarterback USA. And now all of a sudden you're trying to figure out another position to play. Yeah. It was really tough at the time. You know when I got switched my my freshman year. I didn't really want to. I said I'd go play receiver. You know helps the team, but it's not what I wanted to do. And actually ended up leaving West Virginia my freshman year, you know, to go to go play quarterback junior college. And you know, it took me a little bit to realize that wasn't going to be able to play division. One college football at a high level at the quarterback position. And then after I realized that it, you know, it took me a little bit longer to realise than probably should have. But once I realized that I wasn't going to be able to to do that. I was all into play receiver. And you know, that's that's really what what the last two years have been about. But you put up great numbers here that thirty three touchdown receptions in the last two years. I mean, that's that's impressive. Where where do you stand as far as the draft goes? Because the last thing I saw was maybe you'd be third or fourth round pick. What are you hearing? Yes. Pretty much around there as well. You know, you never really know what what the teams are thinking in house because that stuff really doesn't get release much to the media. You know, so I it's tough because on draft day guys on on other people's boards end up going, and then everybody's scrambling for for what they need and who they want. So it's really tough to tell you know, now, it's at a point where put in all the work. You're the senior bowl to combine pro day. And all the interviews in between, you know, now, it's just time to wait. And then she got where you're going to be playing and then be ready for rookie minicamp because that's you know, a lot of guys think that that's. Yeah. It's not after pro day kind of chill out for a little bit. Literally right around the corner after you get drafted. He's David sills. Former West Virginia whiteout best interview that you had was with which team. I liked. I liked my interview with coach Tomlin down at the senior bowl met with the Steelers host staff, and that was that was a good interview talk for about thirty minutes and everything down there. So you know, he was a really cool guy. Very personable. So, you know, talking to him was was very well. Would you run the forty? Four or five seven all right? It's not pedestrian did. Where does that kind of? Where's that kind of match up with are you more quick than fest? You know, I think I could ran probably a little bit better forty. I was testing a better forty. Had had the combine. But you I think I I'm able to build up speed, you know, and there's so much technique that goes into the forty that. If you breathe the wrong way, then you're gonna add two tenths to your forty. So, yeah, it's a it's a weird form of of measuring speed because there's low guys back and fast guys, you know, can can run slow, you know, because it's all based on technique in your stomach and everything like that. So obviously fast guys have better chances pets times. But you know, if you're taking gets messed up and your fast, you can still run a slow. Well, David, good luck. It's certainly been an interesting journey and be nice to hear your name called there. Whether they'll be on Thursday. But if you get the call on Friday and get a chance to go in and prove yourself again you've been down this road before. So good luck with that. We appreciate your time. Thank you. I really appreciate you. Having me on David sills, the fifth. He's I think he's the first player we've had on who's the fifth. We've had a of junior the third, but he's the fifth c David sills junior the fifth is that what he's going to be. But those are pretty good numbers that I think the next closest to him the last two years in touchdown receptions. Somebody's like eight behind him and total touchdowns of thirty three. That's getting to the end zone with will Greer's your quarterback. Yes. Virginia wherever takes them design a few fun ways. So they can get a chance to throw the ball. We throw him a little pass behind discriminating flings at downfield. Let him live his dream out a little bit. If if he's not a starting quarterback. Yes. See? Here that says he scored a touchdown once every three point seven catches in his career, pretty good. Yeah. Yeah. Mclovin. I don't get how you ignore college production like that like their guys like Beck has barely touch Dwayne fifty touchdowns last year. Yeah. How can you not be a sure fire? You know? That's what I'm saying that production seems like obvious but teams don't seem to care because of the spread. Yes. Fully we like, what could be more than what is what athlete could do is so much better than what he's already done. Drew lock has put up stats for years at Missouri. But there's no buzz around him because we've seen all his car, and he played it, Missouri. We've seen all his cards. Kyla murray? We saw four months of football. And we can't wait to see more. Well, then we shouldn't we should be looking at Wayne Haskins in the same way. He only played one year at Ohio State. We kind of art he went from there. He was not on a draft board in December in September. He was not even a no name. And now he's he wasn't in the mock draft, mclovin Novi hadn't played yet at Neo. Daniel Jones was like a fifth rounder coming into the season. So I heard lock was there, obviously. Yes. That was. But there wasn't wasn't supposed to be a good. Kyle very wasn't there. By the way, we talk about next year's class. We probably don't even know five quarterbacks for next year. They probably have been played yet. Kevin in Arizona joins us. I kevin. Hey, how you doing good? Kevin. What do you have for me? I think the cardinals drafting Murray would be the worst decision in the franchise history. I think he would torment as a forty nine or he would kill the cardinals twice a year for the next ten fifteen years. And I I don't think you need a hall of fame quarterback Super Bowl. Like, oh cycle hall of fame. Manhole. So well allies a hall of Famer Eli the hall of Famer and flacco is above average quarterback. Doug Williams was above average quarterback. You you have to have quality at that position. You you just do. And if saying that would be the biggest mistake the Zona cardinals have ever made that saying a lot. You might have to check your history there. But I I'm guessing. I think Tyler Murray works in today's NFL with that coach that you're bringing in he works. He may not work for.

"Road brewing, fresh craft beer since twenty eleven cliff kings vary is in a delicate position brought in is the head coach of the cardinals. He is on record as saying he loves Kyla Murray, buddy. Also has Josh Rosen. Here is cliff Kingsbury saying all the right things about his current quarterback. Josh Rosen Josh has done everything humanly possible to show what's have quarterbacks. What's competitor is? And I've said it all along. And can be more impressed with his approach. And he's a great player. Top Centric for a reason you see it out there. Just how Saroor he is how quickly picked up. Our system was really impressed with this execution today. What would you just reacting to seat wouldn't want him? Why wouldn't you want to six four rocket armed quarterback? Who's twenty two years old benefit on any team except for ours. Yeah. Here's a clip Kingsbury on the misconception about Josh Rosen. I just think there's a misconception about him. You know? I think he he's very confident in himself. He's very smart. And I think people may mistake in that area. And sometimes, but he's a combine young, man. And he asked the right questions, and he's very surreal Rony works at it. So I've enjoyed working with them for the next couple of days. And then you take Mary or do you like phone number at the bottom if you'd like Josh Rosen call now if flashes on the screen, coal Nell and receive not only get Josh Rosen. But if you order now, we'll throw in cooking very picks up himself telephone. Right. Here's the question. Who would the car does take with the first pick? I want everybody on record here. And then we're going to play this back on Friday. Mclovin. NFL insider for the damn Patrick show. I start with you. I'll go Kyla Murray. All right Todd Fritz Kyla Murray. Paulie Pabst quitting Williams defensive player seat. No counter, Kylie. I'm gonna go Cuyler as well. I think he's the right guy for this quarterback and even a bad team with a bad line. Josh Rosen is not the quarterback for this team. Certainly not with a bad line. Cuyler Murray can can can make something happen. They're he rejuvenates. This franchise gives you must see TV you'll be relevant. I I understand if they trade the pick, and you can get a couple of first round picks you need help. But I do think that cliff kings varying column appear to be attached at the. Yes, he it's I just can't remember the last time for months now everything leading into the draft has been this is the number one pick and this kid's going here. I can't remember the last time that that didn't play out where it was just for for months and months and months. This is the number one pick McCollum can you remember where we had a number one pick. We thought was locked in locked and loaded, and then it changed. I mean, air Rogers, and I've just oughta NFL network. He was presumptive number one. There's a lot of revisionist history on a on a couple of quarterbacks one is Aaron Rodgers. Because now all of a sudden everybody goes all we knew it he'd should've gone number one overall at the time there were people who said well Aaron Rodgers maybe it's personality. He's in Cal system. And they don't put out good NFL quarterbacks. You know, Alex Vissel winter, and you so now you have people said, yeah, I knew it. I knew mistake. They shouldn't have fall that far. Yes. You fifteen years ago. Yeah. I agree with seed Keiler is a little stronger than you're right. There were still lot of questions about air Rogers charter. But there's gotta to be somebody else hasn't been someone who's fallen leader. Smith was not number one. Sam darnold going into the football season last year year and three months ago with the surefire number one pick. He went after Baker Mayfield and saquon Barkley again revisionist history. We remember suck for Sam darnold tank for Sam all that Bs. You're talking about somebody fell from one two three. Okay. I'll Rogers nearly fill out of the first round that that's the big fall from grace there. And even with Ryan leaf and Peyton Manning. There are a lot of revisionist history being written about those two not everybody was sold on Peyton Manning. In fact, you like I I'm told by a great source that they were split inside that war room the colts. They weren't quite sure. Because Ryan leaf had more talent than Peyton. But they didn't. No that Ryan leaf wouldn't put in the effort the time to be great like Peyton would. And really that was the big difference between those two because Peyton not every couldn't be Florida. Can't win the big one. Does he have a strong enough arm? Why leave had a great arm and had attitudes swag all of those things. He just didn't put in the time and effort. Yes, mclovin. I looked up of Bleacher report article on the biggest free calls and they have air Rogers number one. And then Dan Marino. Number two. Yeah. And then a quarterback you mentioned earlier is in the top ten can you guess who that is? He was in the top ten go. Yeah. A free falls. Brady Quinn was number six. So you you brought him up. So he must I didn't remember him falling that bad. But it gets. He did. Who will the giants? Take in round one. And who are the raiders taken around one? Try to answer those questions coming up. Hours of the books. One more to go on this Wednesday. David sills, the former West Virginia wide receiver offered a scholarship at age thirteen quarterback in USA.

Twenty nineteen. Video surveillance was conducted at the target business at approximately ten fifty nine hours craft entered the business through the front door where he paid cash at the front desk to an Asian female end quote. There is more to this report. And I'll get into it tomorrow. Let me jump in right here. January. Twentieth was the AFC championship game. New England at Kansas City for a chance to go to the Super Bowl and Bob was going to the orchids of Asia. The day of the championship game the day of the conference title game. And he's doing this. How's that work? Did he go right from there to the airport to fly to Casey? How did that work? Are you ready to go to the plane Mr. craft not just yet? I've got something. I have to do. I. I mean, somebody could track that flight that's hard to do. And apparently he was there the day before. So the championship game. He's there and the day before per PF t a police officer stopped crafts car as he left on January nineteenth and the officer asking Kraft who was a passenger for identification. Craft produced a Massachusetts, driver's license. And he's still went back the next day stopped by cops. And went back the next day. They made it seem like it was a random stop. But they want to make sure they identified him for the record. I don't know a lot of people get nervous just driving past a police officer, even when they're driving below the speed limit. And they've got their hands at ten and two. Bob was coming from soliciting a prostitute allegedly gets pulled over allegedly provides his license allegedly. And then goes right back to the same spot. The next day allegedly. The day of the conference championship game. Neither man has got a not in his back. He really wants out. And is under a lot of stress. What would it being the championship game? Where there's something else going on here. And again. Dave ehrenberg Palm Beach state attorney, quote, this is not about lonely old men. But forced labor and forced sexual conduct. So that's the latest there. And there is surveillance video surveillance conducted there, and it has him entering the business through the front door where he paid cash at the front desk to an Asian female. All right now, I'm not a legal expert, but having video surveillance of him walking through the door in paying money does not necessarily mean that he paid for sexual act. But if there are employs they're being held against their will. And Michelle steal from ESPN. Tweets. He was seen on the nineteenth and twentieth inside orchestra of Asia, soliciting prostitution per prosecutors getting worse. Not better, remember, right? When that story dropped he added spokesperson who categorically denied that. He did anything illegal. What does that mean? Categorically denied that. He did anything illegal does that mean, these try and argue that it was consensual. And now we're out of time miss the ATP.

"Welcome back who hasn't right through Monday. Hope you had a great weekend. Again. Great to have you here. Now with the NFL draft coming up we're trying to run down as many draft prospects as we possibly can if we can get him in studio, that's even better. And I found another one we're joined right now by an all Merican a bulletin cough award finalist, a two time first team all big twelve player. He was second in the nation with fifteen receptions this past season thirty five receiving touchdowns in thirty three games. Of course, the draft is coming up on April twenty fifth through the twenty seven th in Nashville, we are joined by a former wide receiver from West Virginia, David sills, and he joins me in studio. David that's not a bad resume right there. How you doing? I'm doing good. Thanks for having me. All right. So you're a few days off from the star of the NFL. Combine how does this week look for you, and what kind of emotions and feelings having going into the combine will really from what I've heard that this week, you know, try to grind you out and really make it a long week and everything and. Then on Saturday. They tell you to go out there and put your best tests out on the field. So really, I think a lot of it is mental you want to go through there. Just they they want to get you to crack and want to see how you're gonna react. So you wanna go in there with a good mindset? And then obviously out there in the field testing want to go out there and prove people wrong. I mean, I think a lot of people don't think I'm going to run that fast. I want to go out there and prove that I can stretch the field vertically and be that vertical threat. And then, you know. Skinny white kid that, you know, a lot of people don't think very strong. So hopefully, God on the bench press as well. And get a good amount or upstairs. Well, David seals joining us. All right. So a lot in that answer that I like the other day Dez Bryant tweeted, quote, don't sleep on David sills on the draft. I like his game and attitude with the right team. He will make some noise early. What was your reaction when you saw that? Yeah. I mean, I was I just woke up in the morning, and and get on Twitter and a couple of my buddies back from West Virginia will re tweeden it. It was pretty cool. I mean, I've never I've never met Dez Bryant, you know, don't really know him at also don't really know how it came up. But obviously he was watching my tape somehow in. It was enough to get him to go out of his way and send a tweet out. So I don't know if someone was telling them to do that at all. But something that school especially coming from a guy like that. You know, I kind of get the red zone. Title because of all the shells and everything, and you know, obviously, he was a great. Red zone threat. And you know, when he was playing and everything. It was awesome to to see that on Twitter, really unknown by. So what about that first part of the line? Don't sleep on David sills. Do you feel like people are sleeping on you? I feel like it. I feel like what I've been able to do and plan receiver at such a short period of time. I mean only really playing receiver for the last two years and having such a successful college career for those last two years know, I think people are I think people are putting a ceiling on me. I think that that that there's so much upside suit to my game and being able to because I'm still learning. I mean, I'm still. I'm continuing to learn the physician every day. And I think that that gives me an upside that. Makes me a lot different than a lot of other receivers, you know. And that's kind of where I have a little chip on my shoulder and an edge because. You hear that stuff? You're using stuff is motivation. I I look at it like, you know, these guys have been planning this their whole life. I gotta catch up. Like, there's something I gotta do. And that that kind of gives me the edge and gives me the motivation to get up. How do you do that? How do you close that gap? How do you catch up? Just outworked them. Continued to close that gap continue to get better and continue to wake up every day and put more work in other guys that are at your position David Steel joining me in studio. Listen, part of the thing is like you said you really have not played the position at long last time. You're on this show. We talked a little bit about your journey and for those who don't know remember you offered a scholarship to play quarterback USC when you were thirteen and then you went on to become an all conference wide receiver a West Virginia. So you look back on this whole thing this journey what kind of thoughts? Do you have? I mean, it's been it's been a while journey for sure I think a lot of people didn't think I mean, honestly myself. I didn't think I'd be in this position. Now. A lot of people were kind of riding riding meow. When I was know when I got the offer in seventh grade, I think a lot of people thought, well, this is just publicity stunt this kid really probably won't amount in anything. Or if he does he's probably going to be a head case or something like that. Getting this all this exposure at such a young age. Nobody thought it was good. I'd take it. Now. I think it prepared me for where I am. Now. I think all of that obviously was not the way I thought it was going to go what eventually. It was always a question. What's more important playing quarterback or just plan on Sundays? Your your dream is the play on Sundays and. To leave West Virginia for first time because I wanted to play quarterback and go to a junior college was tough. You know, that's something that that leaving a place where they're not kicking you out at all. It's you're on scholarship, you're comfortable, but you're able to go and say, okay, I want to go follow my dream. And that was something that I was able to go do and go to a junior college, and it now work out and then to have the program come back and call you do that you had to find out the right college. Did you what was that about? Why did you leave? Everyone says you should have just stayed for yourself more year and played receiver. You would have been much better. You would have been a much better receiver. If you would've stayed your stats would have been better, you would have more publicity going into your junior, and my answer to that is more like, I I wouldn't have been because if I would have stayed there West Virginia, I would never got quarterback out of my system would have never I would have woken up fifteen years now saying I wish. Would've gave him more quarterback. I didn't give him. My all. I still had some would have been, you know, not all the way in at receiver. And that was one thing. I went I left West Virginia went and played quarterback at a junior college wasn't afraid to fail. Just wanted to follow the Draymond when I failed. It was. Failing as in not going back to another school and being able to play quarterback at high level. Like, I was at West Virginia. You know that that being able to take that? And and coach calling me back and saying Kevin right there because it didn't go the way you would hope necessarily but Dana HOGAN did call you up. You talked on the phone. What do you remember about that call what happened? Remember being his shortest call. He's ever had to make to a recruit we still have that joke kind of going on that he said come back and play receiver and at that point. I was like considering walking on at other schools, and at this point it was like, okay. Where can I go to play receiver, and he called me and said come back and play receiver and a once your mind completely obviously right on want any other quarterbacks stuff? You know? None of that. What did you say to him? And I said absolutely I said, I don't need a visit on anything semi the papers outside him getting back to you. So it was pretty easy it listen. He's a really interesting guy. A really interesting coach what's he like to play for and what makes him so different. You know, he's he's awesome. Coach, I don't I don't think he comes off to the media as a players coach like that that kind of coach because. Just the way you sometimes acted a little crazy on the field and everything, but he really does love his players. You know, we have a great relationship. I talked to him. Quite often. Even that even though he's at Houston now. And it was a great time playing for him. And he really does have a lot of passion for the game. And and you can tell how much you know, winning and everything means to him. But through his players, you know, he he makes sure that we're all set up for the next level as well. So he he really was it was a great head coach for me. I think he's gonna do great things Houston as well. David sills joining me in studio for another few moments the chemistry between you and your quarterback. Will Greer was something special? I think I'm gonna give him from the outside looking in. What would you say to any team? That's thinking about bringing him in. Oh, he's I mean, he's got a different type of skill set that I think is hard to to see if he's not out there in the game. I think you know, he obviously his arm town is leadership skills or some you see right off the bat. But the thing that I think he makes makes him the most different is when he gets out there in the game. He's a he's a gamer. He's not necessarily a dual threat quarterback. But he figures out how to make things work when things break down. And I think that's that's one of the things that separates him. From a lot of the other quarterbacks is the way he can improvise and get the ball to to his receivers. No matter what's going on in the pocket. What's going on around him? You know, obviously, he's got all the other trade, Scott great arms. Great, accuracy and great leadership skills. But on the field. He figures out how to get the ball to the receivers. You know, no matter what his position in the pocket is. So you touched on this. But you mentioned you were asked at some point what's more important to play quarterback or to play on Sundays. What's it mean to you to now be in a position where you're going to be playing on Sundays? That was always the goal. It was tough to kind of swallow at first. But this is what I worked for minds higher life. I love playing the game. That I generally have a passion for. So this is this next step going through the combine..

"Who you know when I was there. I really just tried to be like a sponge and soak up all the information, you know, that he that he had you know, because I I didn't know much about the receiver position going back to West Virginia. So I I almost felt like I was trying to play catch up like, okay, all these other guys have been playing receiver their whole life. You know, I I've this is my first year doing it back in two thousand seventeen I've really got to work and do everything I can't continue to, you know, get play play play at a high level. And you know, meet the expectations that I had for myself exactly quickly. They got the combine coming up. I'll be there all ESPN will be there will be a televising from there and doing a lot of stories on you and all the players. Impressed. What do you anticipate your forty time being David? I don't want to you know, give anything away. But I think it's gonna please lot of people. I love it. I love it. He wants to hold them. He wants everybody has anticipation. I like that don't give it away being -ticipant. But I think it's it's gonna be a really good time. And I think it's gonna be a lot faster than people think. Very well. Listen, david. Thank you very much. You're really pleasure to talk to male wet. What's where's my man going at the combines going to tell us a lot? If David you go there, and you will you blow it away, and you do a great job. There's no reason to believe you couldn't be a day to pick. Thank you. I appreciate that. That sounds great David sales wide receiver West Virginia. Good luck at the combine. Thank you for taking the time. One old man, by the way, I like to see this is why mail is so great. He can tell a kid where he's going with him on the phone, and he thanks him mail. I mean, that's that's that's the status you have hope. Let's hope David does what he says he's going to which I know he will David sills is a great kid great family. And I'll tell you the know him back when he was young and to see him now and how he developed at wide receiver and just rewarding to be able to see a kid grow from there to what he is. Now, he's been phenomenal as a kid and that great work ethic. All I do like him say, no, I'm not gonna tell you you go to find out what you'll be happy though, right, man.

"You're looked at a lot closer going in another kid. I wanted to ask you about texture down there. Travis Fogel the wide receiver at Old Dominion yet. Some quiet games this year. He had some outstanding games. He had nine catches for one hundred and eighty eight yards against Virginia Tech ten against Florida Atlantic ten against middle. Tennessee State other games. He had two catches one catch but fit kid former walk on six two and a half to ten what really long arms. Did Fogel pop any during practice to you? He did. I actually he's one of the guys got sitting here. Looking at my notes with the his length. I don't think that he's the necessarily the fastest guy or not most sudden, but he's got length, and it just it looks like he's a player who will continue to develop. He's kind of smooth athlete caught the ball. Well from what I saw. I can't you don't see every catch. But from what I've seen. He caught the ball well yesterday. And and yeah, I think he got off to a good start. I mean, that's that's a good group receivers, they're hunter Renfro deebo. Samuel had a really good day. I thought he was one of the standouts of of the first day coming out of South Carolina. David sills coming out of West Virginia, Kat, everything thrown in his direction. Anthony Johnson the buffalo wide receiver. So they have a pretty good group wide receivers with Tyree. Jackson stood them Menchu and will Greer throwing to them. Guys going to take a quick break. Here. We got a pile of mail, and I wanted to get your quick take on something Jon Gruden said yesterday hit that right after the break. Let's consider the secret life of the most nesting dole living most of her life in the duck inside the other nesting Dole's. She has plenty of time to think if we could sadly, she has no brain, however, when in a most nesting dole, his gyco not only saves people money, but also has been providing great service for over seventy five years. She thinks it's obvious..

"One drills. When it comes to receiving one dot. I was totally surprised because I didn't really know much about him coming in even though I've seen a lot of West Virginia watching watching world Greer little bit. And then obviously, David sills and Gary Jennings, but Trevan west co-, and he is like six foot three to seventy. I mean, he is absolutely massive in weight. But when you look at him, there's no sloppiness to it. It does. Doesn't look like he's somebody who was going to be to seventy and even look at fullback, and he any place fullback too. So that means guess what you get to get rid of all the Wally. If you're us, and you're gonna see more fullback now, you're gonna see more fullback, which as Garrett call in the place. So I'm I'm cool with that. And it looked like he had some decent pop at the point of tack when he was blocking when he was filling the hole when he was a lead blocker. He showed good hands on most of the routes us all him run. I even watched him run that patented cold Beasley whip route boy, and he sat down sunk his hips and absolutely dusted. Juwan Thornhill the safety from Virginia. Yeah. He I think my the most impressive thing with him was able to see him lineup different spots. Yes. The versatility is huge. Especially when you're talking about a guy that the Cowboys. They I mean, it's move guys around. Yeah. I it's why we liked the Nick last year because Nick was able to do. Yeah. Nick fallen because he was able to line up outside. He was actually like running hitch routes selling vertically against quarters that was that was fun. Unfortunately, he got hurt was out for the year as a rookie for the lions. But my titan is a guy that I've fallen in love with. You're probably starting to hear more about them. Another small school guy Stetson tied in if you wanna call them that Donald. Look if you're a Cowboys fan, that's probably never going to happen. No ever going to happen. He's not an inline guy. He's not gonna block. But if you're looking for a guy who can line up in the slot and catch pretty much anything thrown his way that's him in you look at him at Stetson. And it literally looks like he's playing against a junior varsity football team because he is six foot eight two hundred forty five pounds and everyone else is five foot ten and looks like they had just started playing football for years ago. And the thing that I love about him is his traits translate. So well over to the next level he has super reliable Hansi catches everything. His catch radius is bonkers. He has like a thing. They said today that he had a seventy inch wingspan or something crazy like that. And it's just insane. He catches everything because of his his catch radius his wingspan his hands, and he's a pretty good route runner too. Which is is the prising because he's not the most fluid athlete. He takes very long stride..

"Schuessel tack. All right mates is air marshal. A seventh grade quarterback at MacArthur academy in Southfield Michigan. Yup. Has been offered us collar ship to play football at Michigan. According to his father, Brian wolverines coach, Tim Harbaugh. Extended. The after after watching tape of the thirteen year old quarterback the offered is not buying the kid to Michigan. He can't even sign it until he's in high school, but Michigan is probably mound to it. Because if they pull it back every other school use it against them. Right. So considering that is it smart or stupid for Harbaugh. Offer a scholarship to a thirteen year old. Well, this happened. I think with lane kiffin and a kid named David sills Cray was pretty good wide receiver out to be a really good wide receiver at West Virginia. I I think it's a bit much. I think there should probably be a first of all for the kid. He just he's committed to a Michigan education mean he's got a he's got a free degree from Michigan. If he wants it. So I've got no problem on that side on the other side. I think it is professionalizing little kids wholly agree with you. I think that this is stupid. They NCAA should just put in a rule. No offering scholarships to kids in junior high. It puts a tremendous amount of pressure on the kid and most of the time it doesn't happen. Anyway. Why can't you just say it to the kid without offering a miscarriage hip? He knows kid is thirteen. He's got a media spotlight on him. And other teams are gonna game plan against a junior high school kid love to talk to David sills and find out what that experience. Remember? We had him on the show. We had him and his dad on the show when he was still a kid. Yeah. And they thought it was great. They were like what does he think he was at high school in Delaware? Yeah. And I wonder what Steve cards and things. Clarkson, who's a quarterback coach working would probably have an opinion on this. But it doesn't make any sense to me to allow a scholarship to begin to thirteen-year-old agree chess. All right, John. Our votes are due for the sag awards on Thursday. We've gotten screeners are. Yeah. Everyday. I got some more good ones. I'm guessing you haven't had a chance to watch a lot of these mug. No, Lisa's been watching them. I haven't seen most of them. But I'm gonna give you a cat of category. You tell me how you're gonna vote. Okay. Best actor who's in it Jinbao for vice Bradley Cooper for stars born Rami Malik for bohemian rhapsody Vigo Mortenson for green book, and John David Washington for black klansman, I which movies have you seen green book. And that's it. You didn't see stars? Born didn't Lisa see black klansman didn't have it. I have the screener. Well, so I would probably Lisa seen all those. I'd probably tell her. Vote. You've seen them all who voting for its between Christian bale and Rami, Molly. And I can't believe you haven't watched vice yet. I don't know if I have it have the screening. You've got it. Okay. It's fantastic. He's unbelievable. Yeah. Areo like Dick Cheney I will vote for Christian bale over Romney Malik. But it's really comes down to check. All right last one from me. I have a game, Greg. You can play a Michael funchess in for Corrales today. You can play. It's true or false. All of these are facts about the Super Bowl. The Rams are hitting having heard Super Bowl. All right. So you guys tell me true or false Super Bowl Sunday is the largest day of food consumption in the United States, Greg true or false. It has to be true fund. True. True mace. I gotta say true. All three of you..

"Every year is the over under for national anthem the length of how long it will be from beginning to the last note is that something you bet on. No, why would I bet on that? It's probably the second most popular bit other than betting on the game itself. That's a stupid bet. I don't know why I would even care, but it's like bidding the coin about the national in about the length. Yeah. Yeah. You will have more fun lists in the national anthem. If you have money on the line. Let me tell you that anyways. Would you bet? The over the under though. But the minutes. It doesn't matter. Oh, they do it. So the way they do it is they find that person seeing the national anthem as many times that they have whether it's one or ten times, and then they figure out the average, and then they kind of adjust it based on since it will be the Super Bowl they'll adjust it higher because they'll think maybe that singer will try and do a little bit more. We'll try and go a little bit above and beyond as their moment. But would you bet the over the under? Over over are always more fun. The over. But it's also the point of it's the Super Bowl it's going to be a big like a big spectacle type feel I have a question for you. How young is too young to give a kid a football scholarship? How fun is it? How young is too young to give a kitty football scholarship? Five years old. That's obviously really young. But anything higher than that say ten I've seen like fifteen-year-olds scholarship. So Jim Harbaugh you ever heard of him. We bring we brought them up a couple of times. He obviously the head. Coach of Michigan has given. A seventh grader quarterback a football scholarship. What do you save out that that is pretty darn cool and Mike Kim must've been impressive. Is just way too young. How can you project? It twelve result of this kid is going to be good at seventeen. What do you have to lose? The fact, I don't know. I mean, don't they have to honor his scholarship, you can revoke it really I've seen people get their scholarships vote because of injury or something like that. Okay. But what if it's not dude injury? I'm non tireless. Sure. He got us to accept the scholarship. You can go to another accepts a full ride scholarship. I'll she can't take it back if he's just not good, right? Like, yes. It'd be a medical. There have been like a scholarship that kid hasn't really lived up. That's happened before the player doesn't get their scholarship taken away. Unless he does something like he gets arrested or a risk. They're willing to take. It feels like it is interesting. Do you know that David sills is a wide receiver for West Virginia? He's going in the NFL draft. They say he'll might be a middle round pick a fourth or fifth round pick. He was an eighth grader who was given a scholarship USC ended up not being a quarterback and then transfer to West Virginia and started playing wide receiver and up being their best wide receiver this year again might be middle round pick. So that kinda shows you that you might be a quarterback it in middle school. But you might end up playing a different position down the road. Right. Absolutely. I mean, you're what twelve years anything can happen. I just feel like football so risky like in basketball. I could see a kid like eleven or twelve getting a basketball scholarship because his best ball. Like, maybe the kids already six six, you know, maybe five. The twelve year old six six I mean, it's happened. Yeah. Where's that high school kid, maybe as miracle that's seven to the only about the whitest the long arms ever seen my life? Yes. So I mean, you can see that happening because somebody so normal because basketball's a sport. There's a lot of abnormal human beings playing in terms as you have to average like six five to be a. Basketball player. Yeah. It just seems weird. Well, when you see this like five nine compared to an average basketball high player, they're tiny this the kids take five nine is what I'm saying. So I remember all boykin how tall five eight five seven..
