A highlight from "Tory Lanez Gets 10 Years ..Wayne Brady Comes Out As Pansexual..Ciara & Russell Having 3rd Child....
"Welcome to another edition of Convo Over Cigars. This is the weekly recap. Let's talk about what happened this week. The big trending news stories. Rapper Tory Lanez was sentenced to 10 years in prison. This was on Tuesday in Los Angeles County Superior Court for the shooting of Meg Thee Stallion. This was back in 2020. Last December, Tory Lanez was found guilty of shooting Megan in party at the home of celebrity Kylie Jenner. Lanez spoke for several minutes at Tuesday's sentencing. He described the victim as his friend, someone I still care about dearly to this day regardless of her feelings about him. He talked about bonding with Meg Thee Stallion over the loss of their mothers. Meg Thee Stallion did not appear in court for the sentencing, but she did issue a written statement saying for once the defendant must be forced to face the full consequences of his heinous actions and face justice. When the shooting occurred, Meg and Lanez left the party along with a friend of hers and his bodyguard. The artist got into an argument in the car. Tory began shooting at her feet when she got out of the vehicle. She was hospitalized and Wayne Brady is opening up about his sexuality revealing to people that he is actually pansexual. The Let's Make a Deal host said that he initially couldn't settle on a label for his sexuality. Nothing that bisexuality could truly describe how he felt. Well basically he was saying that being bisexual that term did not truly describe how he felt. The 51 year old says he's bisexual with an open mind. To be clear pansexual is defined as being attracted to a person regardless of their sex or gender. So Wayne Brady to me has come out as gay. He's basically a gay man who says that he's pansexual. If you are attracted to both males and females technically you're bisexual. So just to be clear but good for him living his truth. I don't have anything to say about that. I think Wayne Brady is a talented guy. I like watching his shows that he hosts. I think he's a very gregarious very charismatic host but you know living his truth and that's what we're Superstar vocalist Sierra has announced that her and Denver Broncos hubby Russell Wilson are expecting their third child together and their fourth child all together. So this will be their third child together and their fourth child all together. The couple shared the exciting news via a video announcement on Instagram filmed by the NFL star on the couple's anniversary trip to Japan last month. The baby on the way joins three -year -old son I think his name is Nguyen and the daughter her name is Sienna Princess. She's six. Sierra is also mom to future Zaire. He is nine who she shares with the rapper Future. Now Neo is addressing comments that he made about gender identity and allowing children to interview released on August the 5th 2023. Neo initially raised eyebrows during an interview over the weekend with Gloria Velez on Vlad TV in which he said he was you know he had no issue with the LGBTQ community but he questioned gender identity. I just personally come from an era where a man was a man and a woman was a woman and that you know that's just how I rock there were just two genders you know and that's how it was now you can identify as a goldfish this is what he said if you feel like it I don't care that ain't my business it becomes my business when you try to make me play the game with you. Neo who has seven kids also spoke out about what he has seen as a change in regards to how parents raise their kids. I feel like parents have almost forgotten what the role of the parent is it's like okay if your little boy comes to you and says daddy I want to be a girl and you just let him rock with that he's five he said if you let this five -year -old decide to eat candy all day he's gonna do just that when did it become a good idea to let a five -year -old or six -year -old or even a twelve -year -old make a life -changing decision for themselves he cannot drive a car yet but he can decide his sex.

"Man, first of all, he's funny as hell. And second of all, he did not have a concept of hey, Steve, you know, I mean, Keith, you put a headset on to keep it on during the podcast. Here he is taking it off, going to get all his Taliban and Afghan related stuff. And everything else. And he gave up a lot of money. And a big career to become to go to going to law enforcement. Oh, you're not kidding. If you didn't know this already, you don't go in law enforcement to get rich. If you're going to be an honest guy. Now there's some douchebags out there that do. But what it was, so when we interviewed somebody for our listeners, we actually see them on video as we're speaking, but we only record the audio portion. And the background his office at the Denver Broncos training camp looks like a museum in there. Holy cow, he's got more crap on his walls and on his shelf on the desktop. I'm not sure how he finds any workspace to work. And that's what it was. He was so excited about showing us the things that he had available and I mean, you could just tell the guy who just was pouring his heart out to us. But you're right, man. Next time we're sending my headset, we're going to get a chin strap or something. I can't take it off. Yeah. Well, he played apparently, he played, apparently he took his helmet off in a few games too. I had to edit out a lot of the. Leave me out well, but just truly, I can't tell you how what an honor it was Keith to have you on the show. Thank you, brother. I'm sure we'll be in touch in the future. He owes us an interview with John elwood. He said he was going to do it. I'm curious to see if he brings him on or elwood from The Blues Brothers. Well, either way, elwood, if you're listening, we got a headset for you. Just remembered, leave it on your fucking head. There you go. There you go. Great interview though, honor. Great interview. Hey, and guys, as you're hearing this, as this episode drops, it's going to be Memorial Day of 2022. So first of all, we want to remember the reason for Memorial Day and the reason for Memorial Day is for all of those who have died in the service of our country and the armed forces.

"And so I got one of my hunting bunnies hunting by these bunnies. Bunnies. In Texas, I'll tell you. I know, after Afghanistan, I don't hunt anymore. Yeah. But anyway, I got one of my hunting buddies. And Greta sharers being ruthless to me. So we were still in for Collins. This second year. And he got me a hognose, about a three foot, three foot, three and a half foot hog nose. And hog noses are, I mean, they're mean. It's pulled up on the computer. It's. Like, it looked like a hog nose. But they're non poisonous, but they are aggressive. And so he caught me a hognose, and brought it to me, and I met him, and I got it. And I went up and I got into the locker room and they had, I wish I had. Normally I'd have something in here, but you've got these mesh nylon weave laundry bags that you put all your jock. You t-shirts and shorts. I already see where this is going. And you turn it in and so all your stuff is contained. It's got little tab with your number on it. And the equipment guys wash it and they bring it back and they stick it in your locker and so there's not all these millions of socks and everything. Everything's just boom, boom, boom, boom. So I get there before the guys get there and I get that hug nose and I put it in Randy's laundry bag. Oh jeez. And I hang it up in his locker. And so he had all the linebackers were in one little section. And then we were in the next section, but they had the corrugated metal, whatever the other wire, like a barbecue grill, you know, old style. Kind of an open space between stuff. You know, the little diamonds, you know, you cut out and that'd be your grill for your but that was the separation. So you could hear everything that's going on. And so we're sitting over there and they've come in and all the freaking linebackers, Tom Jackson, all of them. They're over on their side. And then you hear of it. Where's that number? Our stuff is realized. We're just waiting. We hear this blood curdling scream. And what he'd done is you had a wood bench that went the length of the where the lockers lockers are each side of the wall. You know, and it was not a big open space along like hallway, double wide hallway, but then you had a wooden bench posts into the ground, you know, concrete floor. And then you had metal lockers on both sides. And you hear this because what he'd done is he had taken the bag out. And did the tie at the top and then dumped it out on the wooden bitch, you know, sitting there, and then out comes freaking hognose. And he just screaming and so I take off running because I don't want him to hurt. I'm laughing, but I don't want him to hurt the snake, you know? So I can get around here. Yeah, but I get around there and I grab the snake. And he's just screaming and I stick that thing right in his face, and I go, Randy or the joke's done, I go, are they dead? Right in his face. And he goes, yes, yes. I swear. So I got him out of there and everything. So that was the joke's done. Oh yeah, yeah. And then another one, another one that was a good one. We went on a cruise. And it was John Elway's sister that his twin sister that passed away. God bless her. But back then, she was doing stuff. And she got us on the love boat. Oh, yeah. I guess there were two of them. There was a specific princess in the island princess, they were like twin boats and they filmed on both, but we were on the island princess or whatever. We wanted to specific princess, but it was the twin that they also filmed. Anyway, we go on a cruise and we go from it was a Mexican cruise around the Yucatan. Yeah. Yeah, the Yucatan Peninsula. Acapulco. We got on, we went to we go. We get the Acapulco, think because we went to that restaurant where they do all the diving. And all that stuff, you know, the night diving onto the whatever that famous restaurant naca puko. So we went Acapulco and then you did like mazatlan and you just all the way around and then we'd get off the boat in LA. And so I think we flew into Mexico City, then we had to take a bus to Acapulco and then seemed like we got on another plane in Acapulco. Now maybe it's just picking up the bags. But anyway, the whole reason for story is we're down there in Mexico. And I buy a whole bunch of big firecrackers and bottle rockets. And so I'm taking them back. And so we could tell and I've broken all this big because big bottle rockets have big sticks on them. And I broke all those sticks out. So I have a whole bunch of bottle rockets without sticks and a whole bunch of big, like they weren't even a mighty, but they were very loud, far record. And they're all in my luggage. And then we get there and then I got all the dogs out, you know, looking for the dope coming in from and I was like, oh shit, they're gonna get me for 5 hours. Yeah. And they passed right through. So for the next two years, in training camp, people were terrified to go to the restroom. Because I knew they were gonna get a bottle rocket or a firecracker thrown on them. But anyway, you'd have to do urine tests. And so they'd have these guys in lab coats to come and this is one of our trainer Steve and Annapolis who just retired last year. 42 years at the Broncos, whatever. But they had a bunch of and they get all these urine sample cups and they'd be on a first cafeteria, you know, your plate platter thing. Then they'd take all those into the restroom and then they'd do all the tests and stuff. Well, one of those lab guys was walking with that tray of piss. And I threw a firecrackers over the retaining wall and that thing went off. And he was covered in piss. His whole white jacket was soft. And enough would just love that. He got that was funny. And a guy was so pissed. And then the last one I'll say was another one of the big practical jokers was on the team was defensive back, Steve foley, who's still a good friend. I see him and his wife, Cindy, but maybe what he was always he was buddies with and he's a two nest. I mean, he was New Orleans kid. And so he, you know, none of that shit bug deal. And he's a big hunter and stuff. And so anyway, he swenson bob swinson and Greta shards. They were the three amigo tricksters. And I hadn't got totally yet. So we were.

"They couldn't believe it. It was like your heroes. Well, DEA was zero. Right. And rightfully so. But then they got the guy anyway. But when they finally got him, and I can't remember if it was a month later, two months later, whatever, but they kill him. But the guy walks up to him and says, today is your day. I don't know if you remember that state, but that was all over everything because the people standing around overheard the assassination shoots him right in the face, you know? Why was this guy why was he targeted? I wasn't doing what he's supposed to be doing. Was he dirty before or was he just not, did he was just not cooperating with them saying, look, I'm not going to do your dirty work. That's what I hope it was. I think I should leave it there. Because it was because he had done a lot of stuff because and you go back to the red couches in man on fire, all that kidnapping ring and everything? That was all real. I mean, those war walls and all that information about all that stuff. That was all ongoing while I was down there when this guy was showing me around. He showed me around and all that. Where all the kidnapping for the men on fire stuff, you know, it's all based on true stuff. And we all know who the guy that was strapped over the car, which he was still alive. He was the one that was just, he was the head of the ring. And for our listeners here, I know you're probably thinking, just spit it out what you're talking about would be in very cryptic in this because a lot of this is still classified. And the drug traffickers, they always have better equipment because they have better money. So we don't want to give up anything plus I'm pretty sure he's still in there some non disclosure agreements with the U.S. government to put another 60 years as we discussed. So that's why it's not coming out explicit what we're doing here. So, I mean, so then we're, I mean, things like that are happening. I know that Karen Tandy was the administrator. She's down in Guadalajara. Is she called up? She wanted to know what we were getting on our intercepts that they had made any comments about her travels down there. And you know, I mean, that's how good of an investigation it was. But I mean, Karen and I were good friends. It started off real rough on the meta case because of the connections with the Columbia and everything there. Was this like a badge of honor to be in a, you know, being an intercept, so hey, they're targeting me too. It was some kind of like badge of honor, was it true? Did they have a true security concern? Karen Tandy. Oh, no, no, no. Absolutely. I mean, when you got the head of a presidential appointee traveling internationally, the head of DEA, in Mexico, in Guadalajara, what could go wrong, right? Well, if you weren't checking on, and I'm sure if there's any in Arizona or San Diego, any intercepts going on anywhere, they were checking to see if there's been any rumble any talk about the administrator traveler. But she called, and so it was good. All you have to do is watch clarin present danger with Tom Clancy Harrison Ford to see that this shit is real. I mean, that was in the movies, but the point about it is that the cartels have been working against us and other agencies. They're targeting people. They want that kind of Intel. They want that kind of information. So they're hitting us as hard as we're hitting them. But you, so how long does operation dos Equis go on before it's over? It's still going. Officially, the investigation is done, because you indicted 30 people. Yeah, but we also, we got three people designated as C pots. I think that was the first time that had been done. It's a consolidated priority organization target. It's also DoJ DEA FBI, they're the top tier traffickers that we're targeting. Yeah. Yeah. And you got to do all kinds of paperwork and write ups and everything to get them designated. And I think back then, it was one organization one cput. And we did a submission for three, and it was tormenta, castilla, scientists, and Los gano. You know, so you had two gulf guys in the zetta guy that we submitted and it was all off our intercepts that we documented everything, improved it, and it was approved as a triumvirate of sea pots leading that organization. And then they split up, but so we got that done. And then. A bunch of information. And knowledge and then they do the arrests and as many as you can and all that kind of stuff. And it spread out and there's other offices that were involved in some of those kept going. But once you start getting big time arrests, you start getting cooperation. And that cooperation leads to another arrest in the more operation and other. So it's still going up. Because they see how much time they're facing, right? They start when you start adding up the charge and you start going sun. It's life in prison. At a place you're not going to like. So maybe we should make your cooperation known to the United States attorney. Yeah, and then some of them, it's like the one great thing about DEA is the way that we handle confidential sources informants and that bar none were hands down better than probably all the risks combined. And I'm including all monikers. And I've seen it in war zone and everywhere else. But the EA does it better than anybody. And they have for a long time and it's because we've learned from our mistakes and what works and what doesn't work and but anyway, your description of how other agencies were coming to you guys in Houston because of the technical means that you were using in the successes that you were enjoying is very similar to when we had Zach rob Zach on here and you remember him from SOD Keith. Nobody could pronounce his last name, except Tim and his mom. Zahara share events or something like that. Who ski or something? Yeah. But if you remember the national security adviser challenge, DEA, hey, you guys think you're such big shots, you know, what about this merchant of death? Victor boot. Can you get him and DEA looked at him? Said, yeah, we can, and they did. Do you know who got him? Tony Hinton's group. In Houston. Oh, yeah? They're the ones that were running and gunning everything. Now you hear SOD, SOD, SOD. And I love SRD. I worked there three years. And I always worked with SOB. But Tony Hinton and his financial group, most of that financial group, in Houston, they're the basis for all that. Sweet. And you know Tony Hinton, you know, they're not a better guy. And it's just like I'm saying DEA is, they.

"Oh, darpa. Anyway, everything is you got all these different buffers and protections and but everybody's helping us because the flow that we have coming for Intel off our intercepts that we don't have the restrictions. We're sharing with the law enforcement community and everybody else with Steve SOD, all these and it's like people are really coming to help us. And then we get other people coming to help us. And I remember I was sitting in my office and this guy was talking to me. And he is going, he goes, we're 20 years behind you. And since we're not doing any politics, because this guy was a one 80 and political that I am, but he was talking about his one 80 side. Fucking up everything for the past 20 years. On this one particular thing. And that's where we were killing it. And so. We get up and we start monitoring the radio intercepts. And it's all oyo. We're doing everything by the rules, because. We are killing it. And the words coming from the connections with Guatemala, the connection with Cuba. I mean, staging. Tons and tons and tons of the powder that's coming into the U.S. and you had all these other programs that I won't name that were this being recorded, but we were laughing about earlier that have been going on for years. And this investigation just was blowing all of it out of the water. I mean, all these informants being paid and this reporting and stuff and how it's really happening. I mean, we had the breakdown of a kilo of Coke at the. Lab in Columbia all the way across through the transition countries, you know, Panama and all that up into either Mexico or coming up in the water and everything. All the way to New York, where it sold for $17,500, which it did 20 years ago. And it was like, if you were a big organization in New York, you got your code for 17 5, a kilo or 15 5. I can't remember what, but if you knew you're paying more than that, you weren't a big organization. And. When you get involved in an investigation like that, it's just like, and Steve will tell you, I mean, it's like just holy cow, because we're passing all these numbers we're getting from other countries, you know, that are involved. And then there's being coordination with the governments that are good that will go after stuff, you're passing that information to them. So I mean, we had one intercept where I went down to Mexico City. And I segue in, but I think people would like to hear this. But we go down and I can't remember which investigation. One mis investigation, because me and I think javaris with me. But anyway, we're down there and they still had the office. And which was like their FBI, but they get recycled every few years and name changes and stuff. But anyway, we're down at their offy headquarters in Mexico City. And this young agent of the agent is and I can't remember his name's Luis some show me around and he shows us all over. And then boom, you go to man on fire. You know, the Denzel Washington movie. And when he's sitting and they got those red couches, where he's sitting at the offe headquarters or whatever they're calling the and they got those red couches and everything. That is an exact I mean, I was back in there. So, boom. Anyway, this guy just shows us all over her and we go all over Mexico City. And if I could remember the damn prosecutor's name, Steven remember him because he was, and it wasn't. But I think he did get in trouble, but I don't think it was bad, bad, but he was rigged. It wasn't one of the big names everybody's names that we would know Steve. He was doing stuff. And he would let us use his personal bodyguards to drive us back to our hotel after we had dinner. Anyway, that young Aussie agent that was showing us around. During the course of our dos Equis investigation, we were intercepting Miguel trevino and his brother and all that kind of stuff. Well, they're getting ready to kill this guy. This Mexican federal Mexican agent. And they say his name, and I go shut. I go, I think that's the guy that showed me around when I was in Mexico City. So I pulled it up on the Internet and if I could remember his name, and Steve will remember this because what the assassin said to him when they killed him. So anyway, it's like, okay, are we going to tell the Mexicans? We got an intercept and I go, we got to tell the Mexicans because they're following this guy. We're intercepting all this stuff. And they're following around, getting them set up, getting this timetable, everything done. And so we call the Mexicans, or we call our guys down in Mexico City. And obviously we didn't call the Mexicans direct. And doing the right thing. And we called our guys in Mexico City. We said, here's the shit. And we send them everything. We send them to intercepts with trevino, which trevino's phone numbers, everything. And setting him up and boom, they pull this guy and I mean, the accolades coming back out of Mexico. I don't know if you remember that, Steve. But it was just like,.

"This is your rookie year, right? 1986, or is this your second? Oh, no, no, no. 6 years, 7 years in. My rookie year was 80. Oh, yeah, that's right. Okay, so that was the first strong suit in college. You can tell. I've only got 5 fingers on one hand, you know, so I can't have four fingers and an opposable thumb, but it's minor difference, or go ahead. But the reason I'm bringing this up now is this is what we're getting ready to go into in DEA career is leadership principles here. You are down and out. You're getting shit thrown at you on the field. You got the other team laughing at you. It looks like there's no way to win the game. You're in the championship game. AFC championship game. And you've got the presence of mind to come up and say something funny. Whether you intended it to or not, that's what broke the tension and the despair on your team and the huddle that brought you guys back to win. And then you're going to select it. You got to give number 7 a little credit. What was his name? John. We will send him that clip. John elwood, said by the former vice president for security of the Denver Broncos. It would have Blues Brothers. You're repeatedly being selected to be a team captain, which shows the outstanding respect your teammates have for you. And this is ladies and gentlemen, you're getting to hear you're getting ready to hear how this is going to continue on into his DEA career. You don't give yourself credit, Keith, you never have you worked for me and I was blessed to have you in the group, but you never wanted to touch your own horse. I won't teach a damn horn for you today. That's code. Be careful what he means by that. Well, never mind. I'm not going to go there. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I shall say, if you were in Kansas, it might mean something different, but Keith has exactly what I mean. Let's get into the good stuff because we have to always ask one question of the people go through the DEA academy. When you graduated by the time you graduated, how many memos did you have to write Keith? You had to have been picked on a little bit because these instructors know you might be a big guy, but I got the power. When I first got there, they were all after me. And I was told. Our class coordinator was Tina Lewis. Was it Matt loses? Matt Murphy, Tina Murphy. Oh, man. There you go. Okay. Matt and Tina Murphy. Tina Murphy was our class coordinator. And she pulled me aside. Is probably after four weeks, 5, 5, four, 5 weeks of academy. And she's cool. We're doing one of those runs. I don't know if I don't think it was the FBI lollipop trail, whatever it was, but yeah. Yellow brick road. Yellow brick road. And but anyway, we're doing a long distance jog or a distance jog. And she's like, Keith, can I ask you a question? Yeah, and I go, sure. And she goes, we too hard on you guys. I don't know. I go, it's not easy but I go, this is not too hard. I mean, the physical part of it, the mental part. I go, I've been through ten training camps, and I go, that's hard. What you're doing here, you're pushing it, but it's not, because there was accusations being made by some people. And so I guess that's the reason that she was asking me that. And against them as the instructors. And she goes, well, she goes, I don't know if you've noticed, but we've been after you pretty hard. These first few weeks. I go, yeah, I figured so, and she goes, well, in fact, we all had a bet who would be the one that would get you to quit. And I ain't quit, and she goes, no, we know that. We know that now. But she goes, that was so, yeah, they were, they were after me pretty hard. I mean, it was, but it wasn't anything malicious or it was the way I perceived it in the way I took it and the way I totally felt that the focus they had on me was to listen if this, I guess I should first advance I go. First thing they thought I was black. The NFL and I saw and I flew my own learjet. To Quantico to go the academy. So that was kind of the stories that were, you know what I'm saying? Oh my gosh. And so it was like, and then after that, I had a blast. And I remained respectful and I didn't, I mean, she didn't say, oh, you got it made or anything? Because you still had to make all the BT stuff and the exams and all the other. And the shooting and all that stuff. And so it was, but it was she was just letting me know that the kind of the little bullshit on the side that was kind of over as far as they didn't feel like they needed, they knew that in my heart I wanted to be one of them. Right. And so would you agree with what I'm getting ready to say here is that I mean, here you're coming in, a sports star, you know football. You know football inside now, but you don't know much else. That's what you know. And you've made it to that elite. I mean, the freaking elite levels of the National Football League. And now you want to come in to a position as a law enforcement officer where you're going to have to put up crap, put up with crap from people in the street that anytime before in a football game, you just knock them out on the play. And on the street, you got to take it sometimes. And were people's lives. Exactly. So you agree with that, I mean, it was probably probably worth picking on your harder than anybody else, but they wanted to make sure that you could fit into the mold. No, absolutely. Absolutely. And I think it sold a lot of my classmates. As well as, I mean, shit, there was always in there. There was a sweeten was one of my instructors. Piece of piece of work. Oh, for years. And I'm trying to think damn. Griswold was one of my instructors. I thought it was Clark griswold. I thought we were going to have lambdas Christmas vacations. So the griswold. I mean, I'm drawing a blank, but there was others that were Kim Larry loveless, you're talking about some legends in DEA now. Yeah. Shut. The head of the academy was and I mean, and then, you know, my coming out, then we're not there yet, but my first boss is Marty. Wow. I have Marty for my first 5 and a half years on the job. It's like having whitey Duvall at the Broncos from offensive line coach, but only got him for one year. I had Marty.

"Left. And I was, I didn't get along with the head coach at Nebraska. Was that Tom Osborne at the time? Yeah. Yeah. And so it was and then my mom was sick. And with cancer. And so it was the spring at this spring game and me and another player whoever this might sophomore year going into my sophomore year. And whoever knows going after my freshman year sophomore year. It was whoever scored the best in the spring game would be marked for sinner, starting center the next season. And I had a very good game. And spring game. And the grades came out and I was not going to be the starting center. And it was like, well, this is bullshit. And. Old players, I mean, that were seniors graduated with Rick bonas and Vince ferragamo and different guys, they were like, dude, this is bullshit, you know, you need to leave. And so it's like, you know what screw it, I'm gone. And so I was just going to go home, my dad was an architect, had a construction company in Midland. And my mom was sick, so I was like, you know, I'm done with this. I'm going home. And so I get home and I'm going to start working with my dad, and he's like, and my mom are like, you can get your schooling paid for. Don't be stupid. Go to school. And bailor had recruited me. I was heavily recruited coming out of high school. So that's when I went to Baylor. Before we get too far in, how many offers did you have coming out of high school? And why did you pick Nebraska? Because by the way, you know what, the amount of Nebraska's helmet stands for? Knowledge. Knowledge. See, you know. I'm not stupid. I know how to spell. But anyway, my senior year, I was very highly recruited, and in practice, I got kicked in the side of the foot, and it broke my little toe. And so I had a break on the outside of your little toe, and the tendon that attached to it, and it pulled it back. So the doctor said, take two weeks off. And then you can start playing again. So I took two weeks off. Well, all these schools, I mean, I had, I can't remember how many how many schools were recruited me. Is all over the country. And everybody quit talking to me, except for Nebraska. I mean, everybody. It was like. Because of the injury? Yeah, because of broken little toe. And it was like, well, you know, they probably all they're saying it's a little toe, but what is it that really wrong with the kid? No. But anyway, Nebraska always kept recruiting me. And plus the guy that was recruited me from Nebraska, Jerry Moore. He went on from Nebraska to Appalachia state and setting coach there. Greg guy, but he played for my high school coach in Bonham, Texas. And so there was a little more knowledge sharing and so Jerry always kept recruiting me strong. And so that was kind of the determining factor why I'm going into Nebraska. And then after I got there and then went through whatever. And then when I went back, it was like, well, you know, my old high school offensive line coach was now coaching at Baylor. So I got ahold of them and said, hey, I want to walk on, you know, Baylor if you have to let me. But the problem back with the NCAA in that day, right? Was you had to sit out of here, didn't you? It's not like the transfer portal. Now you had to sit out for a year before you could be eligible, right? Yeah. And I did have to sit out. I mean, be red shirt. That was my red shirt year was sitting out. But you could still go to practice and do stuff, right? Yeah, you were a practice like in the NFL. You were a practice squad guy. You ran plays against the defense and so you were the Rudy rudiger for the Baylor bears. Yeah, and in fact, I won the golden egg for that year for being a good practice guy. The golden egg or something like that, it was something golden. The golden turkey, good egg. You're a good egg. It was like, I got a little trophy. I think I still got it. But it had diapers on it. And it was like, yeah, it was, I mean, Baylor, I love Baylor. I'm not bad. This I grew up church of Christ. You know, the holy rollers and went to Baylor and Baylor's baptist centric school, but back then in the late 70s, when I was there, it was like 50% were baptist professors and 50 cent were 50% were whatever and it was like if you cheated and got caught, you were out no matter who you were and you know I got caught cheating one time, but I didn't get kicked out because I even copied the person I was cheating off of in the name slot. I copied their name on the name slot too. That really helped me. Truly stands for knowledge. Yes. You have relied on Nebraska. That really did happen, but it wasn't me. So then I went to Baylor. But how many offers do you think you would have had coming out of high school? I don't know. Because my coach kept them all. He didn't give any to me till after we had finished our senior year. Oh, okay. So I had a stack, you know. You should have went to all I can tell you you should have went to Notre-Dame. I had letters from Notre-Dame. Well, you should win. He was smart enough to turn down the other day. That's not South Carolina, Steve. Southern California. That's not you. Come on, man. And it has been, I think, 1122 days since USC last beat Notre-Dame. So we're going to keep the street going. So anyways. Well, and then one of our players we just got was talking today or yesterday, day four. Anyway, on an interview and he was talking about all his family were all University of Southern California, guys. And girls. And he went to UCLA. And he goes, yeah, but he goes, we beat him this past year. I think he said, we put 60 on him. So I didn't obviously I didn't follow the game or anything, but he said his family, none of his family would speak with him, so. You always have great college stories. And I bet you there were some good rivalries down in Texas too that could rival that. So, but you did that year or so now it would be kind of what your fourth year of college, you're actually playing your third year football, right? Yeah, but it's my.

"According to police and officer overheard on the radio that men without shirts. That sounds like a band. Men without shirts. We're loading a light pole on top of a gray Kia Sorrento. They noticed the light pole was missing from an area on top of the bridge. This one's pretty easy to spot. There's only one car with the light pole on top of it. They stop them, took them into custody, so Victor Walter at color and Blake Lee Waller, 42, were arrested. The pole was valued at 2500. They were charged with a lot of things. In fact, they found out the officers did a pond database search and learned that Apple had 72 scrap metal related transactions since January. And this was in September. So this guy is stealing and selling shit left and right. Oh my gosh. Again, rocket science is out there. Nobody gonna notice that, well, how tall is it a lightbulb? 20 feet? Probably a little bit longer than that. Yeah, it was about twice as long as the car. In fact, a photo of the man handcuffed on the sidewalk went viral, JSS Twitter feed, was quickly filled with memes and photos of ridiculing the bear. There you go. There's a whole separate class of stupid right there. I mean, think about the dent in putting the top of their car. That's why they're not rocking scientists. Speaking of somebody who's not a rocket scientist, Steve, what do we tell you kids? Don't do math. 7 p.m. September 25th and the 200 block of anchor avenue. Officers conducted a traffic stop and arrested the driver for possession of cocaine. The driver admitted he had just recently used cocaine to celebrate the completion of a drug rehab program. Somehow, I think he forgot the purpose of going there. You just can't make this shit up. I'm telling you.

Okay, well, I got to say something though about that light pole story in Jacksonville. I've been thinking about flora, there are some crazy things go down here, but you can live in a boring state or you can live in a state where stories are told every day about what goes on here. I like it here. Yep. Well, that's what we call it Florida man. So hey, as we thus into the reading for today, nominated nominated Donna a is requiem. I keep getting my Latin there.

A pro football player that played on Super Bowl teams didn't win any, not till later, but still, you're at the elite level. Dude was just, he could have stayed in the NFL for a long time, but he reached a point and decided what the hell let me join DEA and go visit countries like Afghanistan and drug cases. So Steve, this is your guy. Keith bishop, man, former offensive lineman for the Denver Broncos playing with John elwood. He said elwood, I thought it was Zoe, but he'd say hello. That was funny. I'll tell you what. I am so excited about having him on the show. And you got to understand Keith. He's one of the, he's huge. He's a massive man. He's got hands like bear paws. He is one of the most gentle giants who ever made till he gets low. Maybe a little bit to drink or I wouldn't want to piss him off to find out. But it's just so exciting to have him get on here and Taylor store ten years in NFL Pro Bowl or selected for the Pro Bowl twice. And he chose to go help his fellow man. He's going to hear his story. He's been a kind of a cop buff for a long time. But you know who benefited from all this? Is the citizens of the United States as well as the countries he worked in. One hell of an investigator, one of the most dedicated people I've met. I used to get emails from him or text messages at three 30 in the morning where he spent an all night in the office where we were working special operations division on an ongoing operations. Love this guy to death. He does not do interviews. I mean, you can Google the guy. You can't hardly find anything about him. But when we contact him, he said, hey, you know I don't do interviews, but for you guys, you got it. So just I'm just excited that I hope you can tell my voice here that I'm excited to have Keith on here. What a freaking hero in my eyes. And you can tell he doesn't do podcast interviews 'cause the guy did not have a concept of what we have headsets on for podcast interviews. You will find that out during the podcast.

"Keith bishop talks about his decision to leave the Denver Broncos as the highest paid offensive lineman for the last two years and join the DEA. Were you at that point to where it was that bad or were you afraid of that? I was emotionally hurt. Okay. I mean, I've had a lot of surgery. I think that had 14 surgeries by then. But some of those are scopes and just change the oil in the knees and stuff like that. But I had some major surgeries too, like I'd ruptured a peroneus tendon in a foot and I'd have both knees reconstructed and I'd have my hand rebuilt and. The crux of separating us from others is the thumb and all that kind of stuff, but no, I had another three or four years in me.

New York Giants RB Saquon Barkley Questionable to Play vs. Denver Broncos
"Saquon. Barkley is listed as questionable after practicing all week. But i think really laura what they're saying to us is we have to list them on the injury report. The we expect saquon barkley to play on sunday against the denver broncos. I do not expect him however to be his normal one hundred percent workload self. The giants are being smart with him as they have all off season

"There's just so many questions heading into this game on the implementation of these new offense of weapons of the giants have yet like how many titans are the giants even going to have available. We've got rudolph coming back from the foot injury. He seems like he's going to be available. Active he could be there leading tight end. Cadence smith popped up on the injury report this week. We know evan. Ingram is dealing with a calf. He was a long shot to play. I'm not counting on him. Suiting up i think the giants might be targeting next week against washington you know. Have him available for the divisional match up there against this secondary. I think that could be another reason. Why the giants look to lean on their running game and maybe in the passing game. Go to quick pass to the running back. Maybe try to attack the two linebackers. They have their josie jewel end a barren browning the rookie yet. That could be really the only exploitable or easily explainable weakness. In this broncos defense overall though this is going to be a really really well coached group and It it's just a defensive minded team because vic fangio so they'll that's one thing that you just immediately have to factor in. Is that the priority on this roster seems to have been since fangio took over is defense. So they're going to be a strong team. I have an interesting question oppose guys before we wrap with the different hypothetical. But which do you guys think has the better matchup. The giants receivers against the broncos secondary or the broncos receivers against the giants secondary. I'm going to just say with into the context of the preseason. The overall health of the units. In everything i would say. The broncos receivers have a have the bit better matchup against the giant secondary got dory jackson coming off the ankle injury. The broncos receivers. They're starting receiver's got more or a lot more work in the preseason. So they might. You've more ready to start quickly and the giants kenny. Golladay didn't get a whole lot of work. Canarias tony He didn't hardly get any work this summer. So it's basically sterling shepherd and dairy sleekness guys who had who had the most work the most experienced the most the most recent football also say and then you've got that rebuilt secondary. There's not a whole lot of tape on these guys going together. There is some tape on the giants secondary. So i don't think either. Receiving core is going to have it easy but the broncos receivers might have it a Just a fraction less hard. Yeah i would. I tend to agree with everything you just said. Chris i mean just because you have a lot of. I don't wanna say uncertainty with the giants Coming back from injuries but just a lot of guys missed assault on a time whereas it seems like other than no offense did tight end. for the broncos. The skill position players for the broncos have been pretty healthy through training camp fans looking like he's going to play just dealing with a lower body injury at the moment. So i'm going to have to say that and that's not a referendum whatsoever on the giants who is still remain high on or or the giants receivers for that matter or the giants receivers exactly within the context of this game. That's how that's how things shake out. At least my is also wondering how pat shurmur wants to utilize jerry. Judy because you lined up about a third of the slot snaps or he mind about third of his snaps in the slot last year. And that's a. That's something that i can see them trying to exploit its darnay. Homes continues to kind of struggle a little bit which could lead to. Julian love for placing dr name homes. The chess match game is going to be interesting. Also wonder how shurmur is gonna use guys like caja handler. Who really explosives smaller type of player mean you have tim patrick i know his name is all that exciting but it just seems like that guy produces every time he gets on the field and no one really ever talks about them so then they got. They got a plethora weapons over there. That's true know bringing jerry judy up as a slot you know. We saw dallas with cd. Lamb him yep basically bursting onto the scene as a slot receiver. I don't think anybody really looked at him as a slot receiver in the draft year. So that i think is something to keep an eye on. Especially as we're seeing teams moving their best receivers into the slot. You even mike evans. With the buccaneers was getting snaps in the slot last year. That's just scary. If you're a a slot corner so just a hypothetical question here to to wrap us up and close us out. You know of of four guys on the broncos roster the ones that we've highlighted here jerry. Judy bradley chubb garrels patrick ser tan and we want to include justin simmons in this. Because you're down here chris. Do we want to include them or just the four guys mentioned i know either so it's hard to not include one of the one of the best safety justin simmons out of those players. Who would we want on this giants roster if we could steal one of these guys to become a new york giant who would we want and i i'm just gonna come out and say i'd rather have bradley chubb out of any of these guys because one thing that the giants are still lacking i think is a little bit of juice as a pass rusher. I know that we have high expectations for social ari but man if they had bradley chubb that defense would be scary. If you had a player of that caliber. So that's where i'm standing. I'm going with with bradley trouble. This one i mean you can knock pick whatsoever. You cannot any of these pigs. I think they would all be really really solid answers for right now. Man i lean towards. I lean towards bowls just to think he's the best player out of these four. You actually might be the fourth best player but you have to look at the giants situation at the context of the offensive line in the question. Mark you have at right tackle and possibly left tackle andrew. Thomas doesn't develop clean up some of the mistakes that he's made. I still remain optimistic on andrew thomas but it has to be shown to me at the same time..

"So i don't think it's too crazy to say here that both these teams coming into this game are equipped to be very very good defensively. And there's a strong possibility this ends up being a low scoring slugfest type game just based on some of the stuff that we've talked about here and if we're evaluating this this broncos defense it has to start with talking about their edge rushers as well as their defensive line and the obvious ones that will be talked about throughout the entirety of this game is von miller in bradley chubb. Both highly drafted players both highly talented players and have been when healthy very very disruptive when they're both on the field and so the giants gets face these guys week one when they're both available and ready to play. It is going to be a tough task for. What's supposed to be nate. Solder and andrew thomas for blocking both of these guys yet chubb is actually dealing with a i think a slight ankle tweak right now need in practice on wednesday that could just be the broncos managing his rep. So it's there's something to pay attention to men. How dangerous is a chris. Von miller and bradley job against matt pair needs solar and andrew. Thomas i mean. That's something that i'm i'm pretty concerned but not to mention the return of mike purcell. Who's one of their better nose. Tackles who can really anchor down the front defense. That is run a lot by vic fangio so this defense against his offense of lines due to the front against offensive line is something that ab i. I have some some some concerns about shirt. I think we have to start with those two edge rushers the last time those two guys were healthy together. Twenty nineteen they. Had i think twenty six and a half sacks between them up chubb has been getting better he had both at seven and a half sacks just all on his own last year without a whole lot of help from elsewhere in the defense von miller was missed the season with a dislocated tendon which ouch and they had completely different secondary that something will get to a little bit and not a whole hell of a lot of help from the offense so if those guys are healthy end clicking end we did get to see them in preseason von miller. He looked like he might have been a little bit rusty but a that dude has been so good for so long. I don't think you can plan on him being any less than his best but then they also have a shelby harassed sean williams dream on jones in their front seven yet. They've got a lot of guys who are really good at penetrating in creating disruption in the backfield and yet that has to be something the giants account for like. They're just not as about it scary too. I mean it's it's definitely that you think about this denver broncos front you think about bradley chubby think about bonn miller then you think about the struggles that you saw in a note was priests anything about the struggles that we saw from andrew thomas in the preseason it's that's definitely probably the main concern. I would say faida circle one liability at the giants have right now. Is the offensive line just in general. I mean you. Add billy price ben. Bredesen's possibly help the interior. They could realistically see snaps. Two and a half weeks removed from joining this swat. Just because we saw chamomile partially porn teller pendant. I mean how much is this guy going to be able to play on that. And i'm wondering how much just I i think the giants gonna come out and attempt to establish the broad. They're gonna attempt to push around this. This front and not allow von miller bradley chubb to pin the rears back rush on guys like you know a andrew thomas but in the situations where they are where third long and they're not able to get the run going giants are going to have to probably keep tight ending are running back into chip to help block to slow down those pass rushers Her might see a game plan. Similar to what we saw jason garrett run against the washington football team twice last year where it was a run heavy approach and not a lot of deep drops. Really just a lot of quick game. Just give the football out of your hands. To mitigate the effect of chase young montas sweat and he did a pretty good job doing it. So let's hope that. If jason garrett replicates we could slow von miller in bradley down i think just to to try to predict what vic fangio it's going to do and that is you know that might be a little bit of a fool's aaron because he is definitely one of the best defensive minds in the nfl. Yeah i think he's going to almost try to invite the run. Yeah he uses a lot of like almost five one type alignment in his new defensive fronts. Walking will linebacker. Down to the line of scrimmage but he even though they didn't they still kind of gave up a lot of yards on the ground last year when their defense is healthy. They've got the guys up front. Where even though it looks like. You're getting a light box. You really aren't. They're good at building that wall. Along the line of scrimmage. And you talk about shane. Lemieux with the partially torn patellar tendon. How much is paying going to affect him yet. You can be a tough guy but if your body doesn't wanna work right it's tough to will it. So this really is. I think the matchup debt could define the whole game and another thing to add in here too as well with this. This broncos defense another aspect that is just so strong is their secondary and we spent the offseason talking about how the giants rebuilt their receiver group. They made all these moves to signed kennedy golladay to bring in various tony. You've also got john ross. They signed in free agency. This is a completely new look group from what we saw last year. And we have high expectations but the broncos conversely they did the same thing with their secondary they made some moves to to rebuild that group and they have a pretty talented underrated secondary that they're going to be trotting out there on the field drafted patrick's retain top ten. They also they have. Is it key positions with kyle fuller and Ronald darby as well as justin simmons cadence turns we know is a very good athlete. Not necessarily the the best safety who plays on when he put brings it all to the field but a good athlete general so this is a very very strong secondary that the giants receivers are going to be facing off against. Yes the secondary with. Patrick 'certain on. I'm wondering how they're going to utilize 'certain just because i've heard rumblings that they're probably going to use 'certain in a role similar to To cover guys. Like travis kelsey end darren waller. The giants aren't gonna have ingram Allocate 'certain in that manner. Even if evan ingram was one hundred percent healthy so we may be looking at some 'certain covering kenny golladay. Who's coming off an injury looking pretty good from all the stuff that we're seeing in practice but other than 'certain is going to be as i you know action you have kyle fuller. You have ronald darby like you said. I mean kareem jackson. Justin jefferson or justin simmons. That is a really really solid back. End safety in the bryce callahan. Who a lot of people were talking about last year as an excellent slot. Type of cornerback. Who can probably cover sterling shepherding. That could be another match up to watch just from the top down. This defense is is very solid. The giants offense has question marks. And that's probably why we we want to discuss the concern that we have. Especially if they can't block von miller and bradley job. So i'm interested to see how jason garrett is going to use players like cadavers. Tony and how is he going to operate. Just the receivers in general but the snap counts. I'm wondering how much could area's. Tony is going to play how much they on barclays gonna play..

"There wasn't a lot of depth at that position. Dick around the vincent syria. I think there was one guy that went in. I route young serious. I'm curious away on a question for you the giants. What's the consensus from the the fan base about daniel jones. That's a guy that you know. Like i mentioned i. I watched some tape on this from from pat. Shurmur and then as rocco's country with a young quarterback drew lock. There's been this massive debate in how long you let a guy Go before you decide if he's the guy or not right if you've invested fix into How long be patient. Everybody's looking at josh allen who turned around his third year a consensus with daniel jones is or the giants fans wanted to be patient with him and i think the he can become guy or what the veiling sentiment. Oh i think the consensus is that this is new york and there's no consensus at all but now in all honesty the deal with with daniel jones is. There's a lot of talk. You mentioned josh allen. There's a lot of talk about about the josh allen. Esq year three leap baker mayfield took a big leap as well. And the one thing that i can say is that it. From an organizational standpoint. The giants are not confused. The giants are all in on daniel jones. Dave gettleman is still the gm who drafted him. Joe judge as head coach. Y- wasn't wasn't with the giants when jones was drafted but judge has been all in in supportive jones The giants went all out this off. Season bringing in kenny golladay You know bringing in kyle. Rudolph bringing in devante booker as a backup running back for saquon. Barkley They went drafting. Could area's tony. They went all in to to try to put weapons around him. You know that that can show once and for all whether or not. He's the guy. The general feeling i think is because this is also dave settlements fourth year as general manager and i think they in the giants had losing records each year. You know of gentleman's tenure and there's some impatience even from ownership there some impatience. John mara said you know he's tired of losing. It's time to win some games. It's time for us. We feel like we're making progress. But it needs to show up on the field and there is a feeling that there will be some changes. Maybe at the general manager spot maybe at offensive coordinator may be at quarterback depending on how this season goes so this could be a make or break season for daniel. Jones could be a if he shows you enough then he gets to be the guy for the rest of his rookie contract. If he has another ten or eleven touchdown pass season like he did last year. You maybe the giants are convinced that they go in another direction. They do have two first round picks in the in the twenty twenty two draft. So they could if they had to. They could package those to move up and get a guy and start over. I don't think they want to. That's not the direction they want to go in. Obviously but this is a huge year for daniel jones huge year for the giants in general just to figure out the direction of the franchise long term which is interesting.

"High hopes for either of those guys. I'll put it that way Gambling was a guy that i liked coming out when he was initially drafted versatility. But i think maybe he's been that versatility has been overused. A little bit is it. Seems like he can't really find a position. Is that think if i'm not mistaken. He's kind of floated around on the played all all over the place But we'll see how out i think. Probably fleming's maybe. Just as good a shot as bobby massey to the majority of snaps the The broncos are in a tough spot at right. Tackle those guys are for a reason and it was so late in the process. When john james got hurt in so you know. That's that's been something that the broncos fans criticize the front office or is that we've kind of known for the last two years the john james's injury prone we don't have a lot of tackle deaf behind him and they've asked on tackles in the draft and he came back to bite them this year. And so we'll see what happens. Hopefully they can get some meaningful snaps out of either mass. Your fleming at the right tackle position but if not they're going to be in trouble all i will tell i will tell you this in bronco fans this. I was actually happy a year ago. When the giants brought cam fleming into new york because for five or six years the first portion of his career he was a very good swing. Tackle a little bit of right little bit left. I think he's dabbled guard a little bit. I think is best. Position is probably right tackle. But i think that what we discovered in new york is kind of what we feared was because nate sold her opted out andrew. Thomas i think the original plan was for andrew thomas to start his career at right tackle. Andrew thomas you know fourth overall pick went to left tackle. Kim fleming moved in as the starting right tackle. This was the first time in his six or seven year career. That i think he had started more than six games. In a season started all sixteen games in the results just weren't good. I think he's he's probably a guy where you if i'm a broncos fan. I probably hope he's not my starting right. Tackle week one because he's a hate to me. He's a good fill in. He's he's a real because he's a hard worker he's pro. He knows what he's doing. He's just not that physically gifted he can probably help a for a game or two but but the more he plays the more he'll get exposed so so. If if i was you guys i would be hoping that. That did bobby. Massey comes in and impresses. Yeah i think that's the prevailing sentiment right now particularly with the amount of games the bassey has.

"In terms of just the The the mental accu men that daniel jones already had in terms of offensive schemes and being also pro ready type guy from a offensive installation standpoint. You lock was very much. Not that way in pat shurmur or came in knin. Didn't really dumb down. The offense for him and i think it showed that he threw a lot at lock in took drew. Lock awhile her. You know to get it and Really didn't start to click at all until maybe the end of the season win. Pat shurmur potentially shifted. Some things out been tried to simplify a forum in so you know it's it's kind of a mixed bag with shurmur is like you. You don't want him to dumb down the offense completely and you want him to get drew. Lock up to a pro ready guy but at the same time. I don't think there was a lot of adapting on pat. Shurmur point to injury lock with expecting drew. Lock adapted his system. We've seen that. That just doesn't work with young quarterbacks time and time again you have to tailor your system to to the quarterback i think how it worked with from lily's from what i saw you know interested in your perspective of obviously. You've watched a lot more giants than than i have with my saturday. Jones is it felt like daniel jones was more ready to take that challenge when pat shurmur kinda threw it at him and so you did see some success in insurers offense. I thought at least from the tape that i watched and It just didn't translate to drew. Lock so i think shurmur okay. Offense coordinator were fine with him. As with the broncos I think he has experienced boded well for him. After broncos ahead at first time on fits of coordinator enriched in gralow the Failed in so with a young quarterback we wanted a veteran offensive coordinator. That could maybe help develop him. So we'll see what happens this upcoming off season How camp works out. But i will say. I think teddy bridgewater probably fits at shurmur system better than drew. Lock guys and so not a Bridgewater's camp of of winning the quarterback battle. So i think probably shurmur in the same boat as vic fangio and.

With the Denver Broncos organization. I've known Greek a long time in various capacities. I was here for a very quick, quick and somewhat cold. Cup of coffee back in 1984. That's what I got to know Greek As a player. I wish I would have had more time to have him take my ankles. But then just, um, you know doing the Broncos broadcasting and Greek has been such a valuable Person in this organization. I'm not sure that I've ever and I have good trainers in Cleveland. I'm not sure that I've ever heard of a guy. Uh, that in Greece capacity that has had more of an impact on an organization so we want to. We want to wish the Greek, uh, happy trails Steve. It's Dave Logan, Rick Lewis and Kathy Lee. Congratulations, my friend. I'm happy for you. Thank you so much. It is. I've had such a blessed life. And, uh, last career with the Denver Broncos, and, uh, being associated with people like y'all has made a worthwhile. What? What? What was the deciding factor for you? I mean, you've you've you've been at it. I know you probably could continue to do it. But what when it came down to it. What were a couple of the things that that played a significant role. And you're saying you know what? I think this is the time. Well, I mean, there's been a couple of years here talking to John about retirement, and he keeps kept coercing me back and This last year when we we talked about it. I said, John, this is it. I ought Susan, then the family to spend more time with them, and and it was just time. You know, 45 years and the Broncos are in great hands with fence Garcia. Now and you know, it's It's been, uh, really story but career for me without a doubt, and that's basically it was all about this more time with family. I love doing what it's doing. And you know there's never been a day that I didn't go to work and love going to work and And I really wasn't work. You're doing something you love. It isn't work, And that's kind of where where I am with everything. Hey, Steve, it's Rick Lewis. Um, congratulations on a 45 year Amazing career. And I just personally wanted to thank you since I've been calling the games with Dave, and this will be year five. You know, every encounter I ever had with you, Uh, you couldn't have been more kind. Uh, just a really good guy. Welcome the you know, to the, uh to the the the part of the team that Does the broadcast and I just wanted you to know that I really appreciate that. That's very cool of you. And everybody says so many good things about you. Um, it was good to kind of get to know you a little bit. These last couple of years. So when you started in 1976 as an assistant athletic trainer, could you even dream that you would have the kind of run you had in the National Football League? No, not at all, Especially when ownership changed fairly quickly and and you know, they coaches changed. I mean, it was amazing. I I never I didn't look at it like I was going to be here for 45 years. I mean, I was just, you know, trying to just spend my desk and take it a day at the time, and, uh, You know the lung Young buck from Hugo, Colorado. It's uh, going into environment like that was overwhelming to start with. In fact, the first day I came to work. With Saint Patty's Day and walked in the old locker room out of 5700 Logan Street, and, uh, and to my left. We're two guys in the middle of the locker room with our aunt surrendered. Aranda cake, a beer and I'm going. Yeah, uh, 22 Irishmen sitting in the middle of the floor and at 8 39 o'clock in the morning and wow. Yeah. Welcome to the NFL. I guess, huh? You know when you when you when you stop and think about this, um what? What Two or three things have have been most prominent in your mind in terms of As Rick said, When you start it was 1976. And this is the last check. 2021 are there a couple of things that have just impressed you in terms of They? They've changed so much over the years with respect to the job that you were tasked to do. Well, I mean, you know, it's a people business and that never changes. I mean, you have to respect people understand people, uh and and try to communicate with people and that never changes. You know the that concept of it, But people do you know, obviously, uh, the adaptability through that process has been phenomenal. The the technology in the field has been phenomenal. How it's changed and You know, the the upgrading of the professionalism in the medical aspects of taking care of players has just been unbelievable. And and I'm so proud to have been part of that transition to upgrading that part of it. As you well know, days from back in the day it You know, players aren't necessarily treated the same as as they are today. Sure. Blessing to to see that transition and the professionalism come about it kind of a follow up on Dave's question of what you were talking about, Steve. It is amazing how far Sports medicine has come since you started in 1976. What would you say is the the biggest change that you've seen as far as diagnosing injuries, treating injuries and how you handle The athletes. Well, I mean, probably two things. You know the imaging that is available today, as, uh, It's just bar. None that to use it. This takes away the The subjective part of the diagnosis. And that has been tremendous. The arthroscopy back in the day on Never forget, uh We had a player offences, starting left tackle. Uh, it wasn Dan Reeves early years. Uh, tourism meniscus Sunday game. And it just was when Dan first came here and I went to dead. And and said to him that you know this guy needs to have an arthroscope. We need to take care of this. The message. How long is he going to be out? And, you know, I said, Well, it's probably going to be through four weeks. 34 weeks. There's no way you know the only way that till the end of the season that Dallas to do this, and so I'm kind of you know, I was on the phone in the training room, and the coaches were across the street. And finally got her doctors together. I said we got to. We got to talk to this. You know, we got to get this guy back. We can't wait to lend the season kind of thing. So the doctors came out back in those days. It was books and pictures and that kind of thing, not the Internet. So we sat down with Dan in the afternoon and went through this. And, you know, he looked at me at the end of it, and he goes. Okay. Now that we'll go ahead and do it, and I'm telling you, if this doesn't work, it's on you. Oh, cases it wasn't one of those perfect cases. The guy had surgery on Monday, and the guy played the following Sunday. Wow, and it was just one of those perfect things That doesn't happen very often. And Dan Reeves the next week, he called Tom Landry and said, Hey, coach, you gotta do this thing called arthroscopy. Wow. To me. That was a real turning point. Uh, some of the medical diagnostic things early on, you know, I think I think back to my career Greek and you can. You can appreciate this a tour. Horny up my junior year at University of Colorado missed the basketball, uh, season, but I had surgery on a torn medial collateral ligament, which, nowadays I'm I'm not even sure they still do surgery.

NFL Franchise Tag Tracker, Denver Broncos
"Own ego signing the franchise tag is gonna make you more money. In the long run. You will make more money off the franchise tag because you're still going to get the big money deal the next year or the year after. And it's interesting for like Dak Prescott, For example, he ended up getting the five year deal that Dallas ended up wanting simultaneously. He got more money up front. I mean, I think I remember he was six years ago. Control. They got everything they wanted out of exactly right. But on the other side, he had to wait for Patrick Holmes deal to come in. Yes, way for John Watson and better And that's you saying the market on Lee goes up You is an NFL team. You are one of two entities. You are the people that set the market or you are the people that are reacting to it. That's it. There is no in between, and so you can either get out in front of it and pay a guy and it's gonna be a cheap deal in two years. It's gonna be expensive. Looking at the front end. You're gonna get a little laughter when you sign it. And then two years and then your best bet go well, you got a quarterback, that's 80% of the market. Or you're gonna be. You know the team that it's reacting to the market and get going over pay for stuff. That's what happens. You know, the faster you get the deal done, the better off. You are period point blank end of discussion. By the way. Marcus may also got tagged today. So is it. We're tying to justice that was expected, You know, Like I said, I can't go to the particulars. But I had a great conversation there Senior bowl with Eric Burkhardt, who's Marcus Mae's agent? We're talking about the situation and everything, And I think those two safeties are eyeballing each other as far as what the contract Sorry. It's gonna be a question. Which team blinks first, but this was kind of like If we go back several years, everyone Dez Bryant and Marius Thomas. Both got tags. They both ended up getting their contracts done, but they literally got done within the same day. Well, it was pulled. Teams were waiting on the other one, You know, to kind of see the framework and see if they were the same ballpark. This deal done. And finally Jerry was, like, just do it here, you know, And that's and then the Broncos like, okay, we'll offer you that. It is very same thing crazy, so it might come down to the same kind of deal And if the Jets can get Marcus made done, they think Justin's will get done first, and I think it will get done early. Okay, So I think Justin's deal we've got well before the draft. Okay. All right. I like that. They've got to well after that to get it done. So that's just my hunch. Um, based on what I know about both sides of the situation and and again, it kind of comes back to the whole procedural word that was used. That was the word that the Broncos used. That's the word that we've understood this entire time. You've been listening the program, we said From a procedural standpoint, the Broncos will likely use that franchise tag for the second time on Justine Simmons is not the intense and not give him a long term deal. People are misunderstanding this situation, and I even had questions today about okay. Well, if they would've pushed back the franchise tag, maybe the Broncos could've gotten something done. Or maybe the Broncos should have tried to do something like the Cowboys were. This whole deal came together in like 24 hours. The fact is, if you You with the way it's supposed to be viewed, which is what the Broncos are doing. This is a we don't want you going anywhere. We don't want to risk getting to the final 11th hour and all of a sudden there's a paperwork issue, and we can't do a bill. That's exactly right. We do not want to risk that. We're not gonna stub our toe. And so we're going to go ahead and get this thing done now and understand they on the other side. The expectation by all parties involved is to get something long term done. Yeah, um and how it should be used by the way the doctor getting it done in 24 hours. I hate that. I hate that term because it's It's not really They were close last year last they were. They were close last twosome framework there, But I'm saying that like it really escalated over the last 24 hours. To appoint, at least at some of the reporting this out there really escalated over the last 24 hours that they were able to get to the finish line right before the franchise tag deadline, right, so that that's that's the thing Dallas has been called. They were close, actually Latin. Not last year, the year before last, Scuse me. Before the first tag that September. They were close. Stephen Jones, They believed they had it. They believed they had it and they were. There were some issues with length and and how the final two years of the deal were structured and all that kind of stopping. It fell apart last night, but they they thought Dallas thought they had it done. S o. You know, I'll just I'll just leave that at that. And we can we go up but a sparse the Broncos go. I have no doubts that they'll get this deal done. I really don't have 99.999999999% Sure they get this thing done, Okay? And then as far as

"Get the strong Watts and What would you think about Stafford going to the Denver Broncos? I think the Broncos make a lot of sense. It really comes to me. If the Broncos are ready to move on from Ju lock, I would be ready to move on from Trulock. I think this ceiling is relatively low. He just doesn't have it to me. He agreed like he to me is the A F C version of Daniel Jones. Like I don't think that's a guy that you're gonna win and a high enough level, so I'd be interested in Matthew Stafford. But who knows who's making the ultimate decisions? Right now? In Denver, they just moved on from John Elway. He's taken a different role. New general manager Same head coach The Broncos got a lot of moving parts right now. That you'd like to go to get a lot of nice young receivers would be a dream to go there. I think Stepford. I appreciate the phone call. You're right. I like the Broncos parts a lot. I think the Broncos are one of the more talented younger teams in the league. They just don't have the quarterback They didn't last year. I think they have drastically improved the running game. Like they're tight and situation. I like the young wide receivers. I think their defense is adequate. We'll see what happens with von Miller. He's having a lot of off the field stuff and we'll see what happens when it comes to their defense and him getting back because he missed all of last year with injury, But The Broncos certainly make a lot of sense. That's my list. My list is Patriots Broncos cults. Football team Niners Bears Panthers. I think those are the teams that make the most sense for Matthew Stafford.

"Um, since he did just cross the 16 game threshold and hasn't spent a full 16 game season or off season under the offensive coordinator and so There's a legitimate argument that there's still stuff to be uncovered from him. Um and I don't think either of those steaks are bad. I think the you know where the war comes in is when people throw down the gauntlet and I only want to find evidence that supports the piece that they want to take. But I think if we're fans way we should be looking for evidence of any of those sides right? Because we're always just looking for more information. And I mean I'm rooting for The Denver Broncos and whoever plays with their jersey and so that's been my approach on it and kind of my take. I don't know that that I don't think it solves anything. I mean, it's something a little bit, but I do think there are legitimate arguments on both sides, and I think that's the That's the thing is to be able to recognize if people recognize that is like, okay, fine. You know, I may not agree with you, but there's they're not unreasonable on your side. I don't think people are but I don't think the arguments are well, then that's great. I love that. You put it that way, because I think that it seems to me that we've drifted away from optimist versus skeptic and and it becomes much more of the final. You know, one side pushes the other and then they both kind of dig in even more. We're started out more of the optimist versus skeptic. Well, you know, I don't know. I've seen quite enough on the other side is like, Well, I think I'm seeing better things. So, like, you know, so maybe that's really the secret here and Jeffrey. I'd like to form an alliance with you, if you will, I I want to. I want to try to instead of sowing the seeds of discord, which a lot of people seem to do. No, Benjamin all rights, You know that I'm specifically listening. But you know, specifically with you. I'd like to, you know, try to get Broncos country back on the same page with this thing, whether it's you know, Hey, we can all say we don't quite see it or we do see it, but nobody has to be like personally offended either way. Do you think? Yeah, And I appreciate that. And you know, I kind of made a call midway through the season and I felt myself, um, not having fun as a fan at some point during the season. He was probably during the point when The Broncos social media account tweeted out something I went after him. It was a whole thing. But when you stop having fun as a fan watching your team because you're so you know, locked into not part of the punt locked into your Your side and you know them. Being successful would prove you wrong or prove your take wrong or the quarterback panning out would prove your take wrong or vice versa. Right? Um, you know, then then I think it is. This is that's not why we're here. I'm here to watch the Broncos and cheer them on and have fun. And so I'm gonna go with whatever helps me me do that. And I'm gonna look at it objectively and And all of that and try toe formulate it. But, um, I think person foremost, we're all here because we love the team. And so when you stop doing that, I think you kind of buried at some point. That's what I've always said. Is the growth moment for people as professionals. When you go for the moment, did you realize you're not having fun anymore? And then overcoming that moment and finding finding your way again? I was called at the growth moment as a professional.

He did have that mole I do You remember that moment early season when there were quite a few of the people of Mile High report, there were little frustrated about the Broncos, who were You know, not a winning team at that point, but they were taking opportunity to take some shots at, you know, from Social media side and I could see why they took the way they did, But I'm hoping that we as a fan base. Can kind of just get back to the skeptic Verses. Optimist versus the hater and, you know, overall affection, lover. Whatever that other sides called. Let's just get back to where sports is fun.

"More note regarding the NFL. I'm not sure if you heard this or not, but it finally happened. John Elway finally admitted that he could not find a quarterback. So he is stepping down as general manager of the Denver Broncos. Well, technically, that's not really all true. Yes, he is stepping down is GM But he didn't say or admit what we all know that he can't find or develop a quarterback not named Peyton Manning. No, just because they always stepping down does not mean that he is leaving Dove Valley. He's actually staying on his team president while the new GM is gonna make all football decisions. Always said in a statement, quote working in this role for the past 10 years and going back to my playing days. I've always tried to do everything I can to help the Broncos win and get better is part of a transition. I thought about for a long time. I have made the decision to step up into an elevated role and hire a GM. To lead our personnel and football staff. End quote. So, essentially, this dude just gave himself a promotion, right? I mean, how big of a legend would you have to be in your own city and inside your own building that you can't be fired? While the dumpster fire of the ownership situation fights over who actually gets control of the team. Oh, John is in essence, giving himself a better gig for nonperformance. Am I right? Actually love this. Probably keeping the same money and doing less work. Nice work if you get it, a John No, but for real, it is the right move. The guy is a living legend in that town. He could still be associated with the team and, most importantly, he can no longer be associated with or be accountable for turning the draft card in on another bad quarterback. Trying to sign one of free agency, so it's a win win Bronco fan. You get to keep your legend and you might actually have a shot at improving your roster. And while I'm not going to kill this guy for his entire roster, like some Bronco fans do I mean, he actually did make some good moves, not a quarterback. But he actually did make some good moves as an example that wide out that he drafted in the second round this past raft who is the son of hip hop icon? Embassy. Kidding. By the time.

He is going to remain president of football operations, but they are hiring a new GM. Alfred. What do you want to see in the new GM? Uh, I want to see E guess a blueprint. I want to see the of continuous blueprint of the same players being drafted year after year. Time after time. Even when you add guys in free agency, they all fit the same mode. So you know what the players look like before. They even become part of the Denver Broncos and give you an example. We could talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we can talk about their offensive lineman. We know that they're big. We know that they're quick and they're not really massive man who stay in place. You have to be able to move out of the blue print. There has been going on for a long time, right so We need a blueprint. We have to have a blueprint of what these players like. You can't get a guy who is a second round defensive lineman who can't play on the interior of the defensive line. If you don't play a 43 defense in the 34 defense, you need to have a big style guy. So way get threw out some of the You know some of the selections that we've had in the past because guys were good college players. If they don't get the blueprint and the model, then we probably won't have them as part of the franchise going for what they have to be in that. Category. Jo Jo Oils What are we doing

Can the Pittsburgh Steelers Go Undefeated?
"Are see. We are forced to listen to quarterback so often in the world of nfl analysis. So i just wanna thank you for helping lead. The db revolution espn daily. Why does this happen. You guys finally invited me or it's your time man your old team. The steelers are right now. Undefeated and that is surprising. Let's be honest to a lot of people. So how surprising is it though to you. I think it's it's. It's more surprising when you actually watch the games It's obviously surprising. Anytime team goes through more than half of the season and their undefeated. But when you watch the steelers play the second half against tennessee titans even watching them to send the backup quarterback gets the denver broncos or be dominated upfront defensively the way they were against the baltimore ravens but still be undefeated. I think that's the fascinating part is not just that they've managed to win. Every game is just inside of those games. you seen opportunities for them to lose. But they've made the place that they've to. I mean you can even look at a match up against the dallas cowboys and say you know gary gilbert and the dallas cowboys may have deserve to win that game. But that's what this lied about was going to come down to one possession games. He's gonna come our critical situation though football moments and at least it does far. The steelers have found answers to any questions in those important moments. And this is why you sit undefeated. So how does this defense stack up. Ryan versus the steeler defense. Is that you played for that. You helped lead. What are the holes in this defense. You know what. I don't think they necessarily have holes in the sense of of those things being a negative right. He's looking to make a rush. The passer with just for the obviously can bring bring pressure make fitzpatrick ultimate playmaker on the back end and i think they have really good corners. But they don't have that great court but when you all those things together i think you get one of the top defense in the league especially when it comes to pressure and turning the ball over we. That's what football is right. Like people aren't going to hold you. Thirteen points like we did wait. Like that's not the ball we play it. You can't intimidate people like i would get fined and kicked out of every game. Five play james harrison fell six million dollars a year. You can't do those things anymore. But if you could get the ball which the pittsburgh steelers do know that really helps and that's why this team world season. Well i wanna get into the difference between playing football then versus now especially because offense is king these days as you implied right there so the defense is the big reason. The steelers are undefeated. The offense though i mean they've been relatively relatively average so can eighteen built around defense. Like the steelers are ryan. Can that sort of team win in the modern nfl. I believe they can. I believe they can. Because if you look at the individual weapons offensively like they are extremely. good I think you you're missing that one running back piece but we look at pool. Smith schuster the johnson. Eric ebron like that's a skill set or skill position that a lot of teams would love to have especially teams not named became the city chiefs. And so if you can do all those things on the outside like they can. You can score points. Also look at this team at critical moments though. Think about tennessee. Titans having to get a drive late in the game even though been was a reception late like they were able to the ball greg band. There's gonna prevail on the road. The pittsburgh steelers had the hold on dearly man. Hold on they do for the baltimore. Ravens they score in the second half and they were able to do that then back pop. For the end zone touchdown pittsburgh and all the out cut to the chase. Claypool man play. It just seems that all the critical point of the season it's offense has been able to produce down to like. I said the dallas cowboy game last week obviously exploiting a very bad bengals defense and well in a team like the cat city chiefs right and i say okay. One had the baby stopped him have to limit big play. The pittsburgh steelers can do that with rush. Plays on the back end right. Play play man when they need to stop the big click now. Let's go offensively the only time we've ever seen patrick mahomes lose. He was in the playoffs. He was standing across from another super bowl. Winning quarterback that was tom brady and rothlisburger. Isn't tom brady but he can do. Some of those things in important moments. And we've seen of do those. And so i think this team can most certainly went into as you mentioned chase claypool his nickname if catching on with you but maple tron. He comes from canada. He's this guy. I didn't know anything about. I wonder if you did because he has seven touchdowns in his first nine games as a pro. What has he brought to this offense. I mean you look at what this league is turning into. Because of the lack of physicality it's a it's a size speed league right like it's starting to they used to be. It didn't matter what happened in the shorts olympics at the combine like if a fast it didn't necessarily mean it was going to translate do can do certain things there did me but it's starting to mean that at the wide receiver position because of the rules. Like if you could flat out run you're gonna probably get open because they can't hold you. You pass five yards. They can't hit you across the middle play putin critic who has great hands he tracks the ball. Well he has a big body and so when you have all those things just translate we've seen chase claypool. You know kind of come out of nowhere. They just kinda have a knack for finding people that sit what they want to do and utilizing them in a way. That truly helps the team chase. Claypool is just another example of that
