Those are the only guys that are not practicing, but knock on wood doesn't this feel weird? It feels good. It feels really weird because when you look at the Cleveland Browns, there's a slew of dudes of DNP. There's a lot. There is a lot of 15 or 17 something crazy. There's a lot of people on this list. Yeah, in years past, this would be flipped. We would be the one with the scroll of players that are not practicing and the other team had like a handful. Not this year, folks this year, we've only got one two and three, four, 5, 6. People on the list and everybody's practicing. Yeah, three of them are limited, but they only guide on their list that's like come on dude is Chris Harris. You know, like, you asked the point or else they would have put them on IR.

"Some of the things that happened while we were watching this game and I remember seeing this, it was like, I think this was before the half. They show Derwin James running to the locker room and it was like, well, wait a minute. The defense is still out there. Yeah, yeah. Durham, where are you going? I didn't see this. I didn't know he disappeared. I didn't see it. Oh yeah, scared me.

So it was like, weird, like the defense is out there. What's going on?

And so he ran to the locker room to get his shoulder popped back in, and it made it just seemed like nothing because he was pretty much back out there like immediately.

"What do i gotta do. Tell me what to do right. Well we're telling you what to do. Start with the already have good conversation. Do your own work in terms of history and by the way systemic issues all that means is there are systems in place that marginalized or keep others from being part of that. The homogeneous church was assistant. I realized twenty four years or so ago. I'm not a politician. I'm not an educator. In terms of teaching at the university. I can't really have an effect on on those systems. But i am a churchman. And i sought out to innocence dismantle the structures of the church that kept people of color marginalized. I came from a very large church before. I planted mosaic. We went from two to five thousand eight years Well over a hundred people our staff. In those years in a town of forty two forty three percent african americans only two people were blacked out of all those hundreds of years. When i looked down on the five thousand people. The only people of color were janitors and began to bother me. That's a system. That's not necessarily a person or a racist. There's a structure there that has made that church what we call homogeneous and is a churchman idle. You derwin we are working on this with this. Webinars with germans book is all about dismantling structures in the church. That's not individual that's collective that's a system that prevents diverse people from the highest levels of leadership all the way to the nursery from walking working. Worshiping god together as one in order to present a credible gospel in an increasingly diverse society. So structures do exist folks. That's all systemic. Racism is about structural in equity and we can affect that in the church. Maybe not in politics maybe not indication of course like there when you said if we got it right in the church we would have the impact christ said if i be lifted up i will draw some people into myself no all people and to myself but we have not got it wrong and as the church so often we are so far behind society..

"To be so i immediately began reading everything and everything i was reading our sharing and so i played five years with the colts moving into year six. The indianapolis colts told me. Hey thank you for being here. We've enjoyed your services but we're not going to resign. You and i was just so frustrated and so hurt. But little. Did i know that. Sometimes rejection is god's protection and so the end so the carolina. Panthers offered me a contract and we moved to charlotte my wife and i were like we're never gonna live in the southeast of the united states of amer. I'm sure everybody has a clue klux klan. At honor be people on riding horses and little. Did we know charlotte was the new south. It was absolutely incredible after two weeks we went for. We're not living in south to listen. We don't know anybody here but we're staying. So you're six play with the panthers and i hurt my knee against the dallas cowboys. And by that time. I had experienced so many injuries and god was changing my heart that i was like man cannot bounce back from this and do i wanna bounce back. But in god's grace to carolina. Panthers put put meal what's call injured reserve. And so all i had to do was rehabbed my knee and read the bible literally all day and so i got paid the most money a happening in that year to rehab my knee and read the bible. What a great gig. And i was angry and now that i look back gob was going. I was preparing you or your next stage. In a lot of those resources were used to start transformation church and so i had no idea to ever want to be a pastor to be biblical scholar to be a theologian also knew as i love. Jesus and jesus change me. He could change you and my wife had no church background as well. She came to faith through a woman at work and both of us were like just these raw people in love with jesus we had no denominational filters we had no herman notable filters and so. We didn't read the bible from a denominational lynn's or have background. Grace just made sense to us. Multiethnic church just made sense to us. Because that's what we're reading in the bible. Where it says jew and gentile so in nineteen ninety nine. I got invited to speak at a youth even in columbia south carolina somehow. Fca had gotten my name. They wanted professional athlete to come. Share their testimony. Might what is a testimony at is that there are no you share how you came to faith and i was like no i need to pray about it because i was a compulsive stutterer and i distinctly remember being in a shower and i'm praying and apprentice. God why do you want me to go. You know how hard speaking is from. A you know how difficult this has been. You know. this is not a strength and since got going. That's why i want you to go because then you can only give me credit. And if i can raise my son from the dead. I can raise your tongue to talk and some wife and our daughter. That time was probably three. We drove down from charlotte to columbia. And i had note cards in my pockets. And i was read and blubbering and and crying. And i think i gave the worse. Altar call invitation in the history of tons of kids came to faith in the next day. The phone just started ringing off the hook and people were invited me to come share my store fat. Yeah and so. That's kinda how that got started about. Why is just incredible leader gift of administration prayer warrior and she would organize everything. And i would go and speak and someone said. You should do a nonprofit. So we did that. And called it one heart at a time ministries and then about two thousand five both of us. We can't understand why jesus church is so segregated with so much. Racial tension the nightclubs. We used to party and look more like revelation. Five nine of every nation tribe and tongue and begin asked people. Why is the church this way and we got on biblical answers and god said well. What are you gonna do about it. I've gifted you. i've called you. You can criticize or you can create and you created. God was gracious to us and we didn't have a clue what we're doing but he did and he's used as powerfully to be a part of building. Transformation church which is intentionally multiethnic church pursues seeks. Jesus and his justice we wanna show the world that people can get along because jesus has brought us together. God uses us to church in america. Church in the world. And so it's it's really too very unlikely. People were both unchurched. Who met at a mormon school who didn't grow up in church. One was a compulsive stutterer and lagaras done now. Happy hour look at now. You're on the happy hour. Does.

"To be more so like acropole welfare. Yeah and so. I'm like the money that i thought was going to fix my family. It didn't it made it worse and the new clothes that i would buy like. I literally have seventeen. Tailor made suits and indian guide washington. Dc with flat out his name was spotting and thus swannee would slow down. Make me these tailor made suits and a part of me. Getting these tailor made suits was so no one could laugh at my clothes anymore. I was the best breast on the team. Because i thought what i put on the outside the inside you see what they say that the clothes make the man that's not true. It actually extenuated the insecurity. I can love my wife the way she deserved to be loved. And here's what. I learned at an early age. If you get close to me you'll abandon me. You reject me and you'll find out. I'm not worth staying. So therefore i wouldn't give my wife true intimacy. True intimacy is in to me. You see and only let you come so far because if you get close you could hurt me. I couldn't. I couldn't forgive my dad for being sticks blocks away never gone to a middle school football game high school game college game and also. I wouldn't have put it this way but i knew i needed forgiveness. Romans twelve to as the the law is written on our hearts and for people listening not people of faith. It means that we have this natural inclination to know that we need forgiveness. But the problem is we try to do things to erase red marks and hard. We tried to erase those limits blemishes. The bigger they get right. So i was having a full blown existential crisis at like man morally i need things to be forgiven for career. Wise the nfl stands for not for long. So when i get done. Who am i gonna be. And it grew up as a compulsive stutterer. So speaking wasn't a career option in that terrified me that who would be when i was no longer a football player to cover my series of god in his grace. So let me backtrack to nineteen ninety-three rookie year. Nfl and i noticed this guy on the team. That's doing some strange stuff. He's taking a shower. that's normal. he drives off normal. He wrapped the towel around his weight. Normal then he grabs his bible. Not normal Any goes to my teammates and he asked them. This question goes do you know. Jesus jesus and a moment of going bro. Do you know you're half naked. And so i asked the better on a team was up with the half naked. Black man about dido jesus and they said don't pay no attention to him. That's the naked preacher. So his real name is steve grant but it's nickname was the naked preacher and he would ask guy as after practice. Do they know jesus. And here's a little caveat about him. He grew up in my emmy he was a part of the gang. You went to university of west. Virginia and west. Virginia he heard about this thing called. Fca any heard that the coach goes stink fca and so he went to impress the coast to coast from sit in the front row so he sat in a front row for two weeks straight. He did that third week. Easing a front role to coach is not there. And here's the gospel. In a way he understands any gets saved and the way he described it as this. Fcat happens next. I'm on the way he describes as a short white guy that looked like a leprechaun the gospel yeah fast track. Twenty something years that leprechaun. His daughter did an internship at our church. Oh my gosh. I love it so let me get back to store so the naked preacher one day. I'm sitting in my locker. And i'm like oh my gosh. It comes as crazy. And he taps me on the back and he says a rookie degrade do you know jesus and like most people who don't know jesus said well. I'm a good person i said. Listen out oh sell drugs. Haven't had a child outside of wedlock. I have a shot anybody. I do good things and he said so. What you're telling me is you're a good person compared to other people but god says that a person is in comparison to jesus. I didn't know anything about jesus. But i knew he was better than me. And that got the wheels beginning to turn in so it was a five year process of would watching his life to see if it was really true. And i remember one day in locker room guys horse plan and through sue tape and one guy duct in a hidden in a made his eyes well as preacher at the okay hip the naked preacher in the i made his is twelve. I mean you make money off your body. So that's not play with. Stow the guy who hit him in the eye. He ran up to me. Said if i didn't love jesus would hurt you guys pretty serious and so over five year process of watching his lot listening to him. Share the gospel on august. Second one thousand nine hundred ninety seven was my fifth year. Nfl we were called training camp. We were in anderson indiana anderson unit versity and it was after lunch. Todd and i remember rose august second because august first we played the cincinnati bengals in a pre season game and stub. My toa hurt my toe. And i'd have been experiences some injuries and i remember. Walk off. fill in a businessman from traveled with. The team looked at him a step. I think odds trying to tell me something in that next day. I'm walking back from lunch. I'm walk into my dorm room in a best whack and describe it is. There was a chasm in my soul. So i get up to my dorm room and this is the days jamie win. The phones were still attached to the walls. And i call my life and say i want to be more committed to you. And i wanna be committed to jesus and i don't know how long the silence was but in that silence like i felt when i was warning it like i felt moving from darkness to light but above all else for the first time in my life i felt loved and the love was not a love. That was earned. It was a love that was given my whole life was based on. If i do good enough maybe my dad loved me. If i do good enough maybe my mom will stick around if i do good enough. Maybe i can play in college if i do. Good enough maybe. I can plan if i do good enough. Maybe i can stay in the nfl and finally for once in my life. Someone said listen. I don't love you because you're good enough. I am your good enough. I came because no one is good enough. That on cross i. You're good enough in in me being good enough for you is forgiveness and a new life and in the resurrection is a new power in a new mine and a new purpose and so when that happen for three nights after practice i would cry and i would think how can someone love me like this knowing everything that i've done and now understand that's grace gray says i accept you where you are but my grace will transform you into a whole who.

"Is to come upon or experience especially unexpectedly for those of us that are following jesus. we've all had an encounter with him at some point in our lives. Some of those encounters had been mysterious like we read about were saw encountered jesus on the road to damascus and acsh- after nine and he was never the same after that i was on the floor of a public bathroom as february tenth of two thousand one and there was just i just started bawling. I was my tears. Hit the floor. And i just said god help me and i've no idea why said it or like the woman at the well that we read about in john chapter four who met jesus and despite what her culture might have shamed her for jesus offers her living water and our life was never the same was surprising to me like my vision of jesus was sort of like an ancient george w bush in a toga. And i'm like the character. Jesus can't be interesting to me. Like i want to marry a woman sunday. I'm very intellectual. This can't be true. But he just drew me in or like when simon peter jesus and has an encounter with him while fishing and he left everything to follow him. I would kind of walk into church. Every now. And then and i would just week and i know why my soul would just weep and walk out of there. Never going in there again. Walking ways on drawn in you see encounters with jesus they change us forever. These are stories of change. Hello.

I don't know. I think he can change your destiny or whatever it is. You're whatever you know. I think it could change things. You can change your universe around you. but real quick. I am so curious Why do you think y'all way is this. Is this high standard for morals Where where do you see that in wars. Come from well. I hate to even ask that question. Might presume underlined by these if you wanna think the portrait of who y'all way has always revealed and the person of jesus and so you wanna see y'all way you look at jesus and he gives you a portrait of of who he is interesting so the old testament and all the stuff he's done in there All the stuff he doesn't raise Revelation for sending. Jesus all of that stuff. We ignore it and we just focus on whatever. Jesus that's what you always. Oh wow that's absolutely crazy. I mean who were in the world would believe that absolutely nuts so so this is this is what i would say because we don't we don't necessarily have times to jump into all of it what i would say is what what would you do if someone broke into your home. Do you have family. Yes yes and they wanted to harm your family. Destroy your like like what would you do. Call the police okay. And what would the police arrest. That person. put him in jail tests. So if you had a cancerous tumor and the doctor saw what would they want to take it out okay. So there's a creation that is through and timed and flourishing but there's a part of your creation says no we don't want it to be good and kind and patient as a matter of fact we want to do the very opposite of snakes.

I looked over your most recent podcasts. And you seem to be talking about healing recently. Can you tell us a little bit about your thoughts on healing and how that works for us. So yes so what we what we did on the podcast is we took six different people that had been through some fanatic. Things really wanted to focus in on a mental health because mental health often Directed shirts moods stigmatize. Not only in church but the church and oftentimes if someone has a you know. They have bipolar or schizophrenia. Or depression or anxiety. It's kind of like worth you know. Just just pray that stuff away but don't do that we on a mission trip to india. We get immunization shots and so one of the things that we wanted to do. Is that in a fallen world. It's not yet the earth is we want. Saddam normalize that in the world that wayne illness is reflective of other aspects. lucas's heart disease or disease and so Are feel are theological approach. Is that feeling is guaranteed. Because it's called the resurrection that in the resurrection And the new earth. There'd be no more deaths for the worst sickness page but on this side of the city You know we're all going to die from god is with us got to strengthen the scott. All things conformist image of christ and so we looked at healing sanctification. Respect for alternate. We wanted to give people freedom to say. It's okay not to be interested. I agree it's sometimes. It's okay not to be ok especially nowadays in the stigma stigmatism with a mental illness. For sure You mentioned immunization shot. You did get the immunization shots correct. And you didn't just use prayer or when i when i went to believe demonization shots and yeah. Yeah just quick honestly. Do you think that if you didn't get those shots you would have been protected by galway since your mission was to deliver souls. Jesus.
Parler ban pushes random app 'Parlor' to top of app store charts
"All right well. I don't know if you guys saw this. But there is a new app that has been skyrocketing to the top of the charts and the google play store and apple. You guys know what i'm talking about. It's called parlour. Now you may be talking about parlor a. r. l. He are the app that has been scrubbed from humanity for the internet for breeding ground for organizing hate groups. I'm actually not referring to that parlor. I'm referring to the parlor that's spelled p. a. r. l. o. r. which people mistakenly thought they were down other parlor. The oh this great tight. It's existed for over a decade and has just gotten rid floating out there until their name made the news and people started downloading. It mistakenly thank you. They don't mike god. It looked like a swing at a really kind of convoluted idea. Like this is their their their tagline. The first and only social network. It's clear mud. What it does guy says the first and only social network so evidently about ten years ago a developer had an idea for what was essentially like a kind of a chat roulette type of situation where he would listen. I do not want to disparage whoever invented. Par lower This one that because they're having a lot of success right now guys are blowing up one day and we're like what is all what is it didn't take off when they launched a decade ago. It's terrible i guess. Who wants randomly get on a phone call with somebody like that's what it does. You can go into these different topics in rooms. Like say it's clubhouse. Yeah yeah like here for example. Let's say. I wanted to go into the vip fan clubs room. I will randomly be on the phone with like another billie eilish fan. Hypothetically there aren't a lot of active users. You're probably a couple reporters downloaded dry out. The few people that got on the phone with somebody. They got hung up on almost immediately. So it's a it's a very odd apu was a big swing. Just didn't work out but the developer never removed it from the stores right now. Theoretically there's a lot of very angry right wing radicals making random phone calls and a hud dated web. One point zero like it's it's totally janke.

We took a bunch of themes that a- Darwin's book came out in the summer at the good life and.

All throughout from Genesis to revelation we we see that there are dark powers.

Los Angeles Chargers safety Derwin James expected to miss 2020 season after knee injury, per reports
"The Los Angeles chargers. Yeah we mentioned. Like the the injuries like Nick, for instance it. Bradley. Chubb is such a mystery right now, there's more mysterious injury situations around the league than I think we know there's less reporting, but Derwin James is injury on Sunday. We know know the extent to it but I know that it's the most caught or I think it's the most costly time injury that there's been since camp started. Because I think he brings out the best in the coaching staff getting to be more creative. This is a bad defense with a lot of talent last year they weren't in the top twenty most efficient defenses. A lot of good players. Yeah. No they didn't have Derwin James, but that's pretty disappointed. He unlocks the cornerbacks you know he he unlocks his tactic partner ratio Jenkins who played really well. I just think he's such a unique special talent losing James is devastating for this defense in it's GonNa put a little more pressure on their offense in tyrod the score some points because I don't think you can count on them being top five upside defense when Derwin James is not on the phone I don't like that term more pressure on tyrod Taylor to Scorpions I know that everyone is fascinated with tyrod Taylor right now it's plain out and it's not fair to him, but it's almost. I think it's like a little bit of the hard knocks after I know. I, mean, it's just that's what happened in Cleveland what a leader what a guy and I think he is, and I think the coaching staff really loves Anthony. Lynn loves tyrod Taylor the person in wants Tim to be functional but the problem is tyrod. Taylor stops being fun about three weeks from now and then you got a rookie quarterback that when. Coaching them. He did he had some moments to be fair when he was in Buffalo In Buffalo yes. Not In Cleveland and I just think that there was I don't know come on. I, mean Austin to me is the centerpiece on that offense I believe in until the end but they're wide receiver right now back he's not but look at their wide receiver position. So what how do you WanNa talk about scaring the defense with a mobile quarterback, but they can't do anything they had said they're gonNA. They're immobilizing how how versatile they can be through the air. I think it's a rough place for Justin. Herbert. To get starts early to I, don't like that at all.

"Is one of the pendants is our posture before people because how we treat people is an act of worship and You know I really sense. Within the body of Christ we have lost a sense. Sense of humility humility is like tattooed. That should be on us. You know as Jesus washes the feet of his disciples. Apple's even Judas who would betray him. That's the king of kings the Lord of Lords that that humility flows out of almost this Lord on beggar empty hands our brains simply to the cross I cling and You know the the good physician did not come to to treat those who think they're well. He came to heal the sick right right. And I I just I I love the overarching scope of the book and it reminds me of that verse. I know God is able to do more than we can ask. Or imagine and in he has done more in your life more in my life than either one of US could have imagined. And he can do that for anybody's anybody's life and and so I'm just so grateful for you and for your testimony. Fear Life for your ministry Derwin. It's it's it's unbelievable. I have one last the question for you. You've been a few years now What's one thing that's been maybe surprising to you or a response to the book? That you Maybe Tennessee coming. When you're right because I know as a writer we often were riding kind of for our? I mean we're just writing in a cut. Something comes out and we may even. I don't know what we're GONNA right before we write it. Her writers say that and I know whereas with Abbott in the book comes out and then I think it was one of my friend Richard Foster but somebody nobody talked about how Noah's Dallas else talked about. Once that book is done it just goes often has its own little life you know it was Dallas. He said he said you know you write a book and then it goes off and it's almost like one of your kids. You don't know what it's GonNa do. It just goes out and it's doing stuff while you're sleeping. Yeah and it's it's. It's what. What are some responses to the book or the impact of the book is head? That was you didn't see coming. Yeah well that's that's a great question it's timely This Sunday at transmission church actually going to have a young lady. I'm going to interview her About four years ago she was distant. A season of this chronic pain chronic pain because some health issues as a result she really sunk into depression and anxiety and was just a bad bad place. Will Her parents Errand Center that happens to be a pastor. Said Hey you know we're we're we're going to go to Hawaii and just get away. And so she was on a beach and she pulled out the my book limitless life and she was reading through the book and she got to the chapter where I write about. How my wife? When she's pregnant you go through condition hyper Mrs Gravity Dam which is compulsive vomiting for nine months? I mean you just like you have the flu for nine months and it was just just a horrendous horrendous time but in the midst of that time God just incredible things in my wife's life and my life live is just amazing but for this young lady as she read the book It deeply deeply affected her and and helped her get out of the dark place where she was and so this Sunday. She's actually going to be a transformation church. I'm going to interview her. The title of my messages I interview Hers Call Waiting on God in chronic pain and so I'm just thankful that the Lord a wrote the book and it went off on its own and it touched her life and so helped her get out of anxiety and depression and going to get the help that she needs it. It's still hard but her perspective has changed and she said you know I had a troubled faith been in and a troubled faith is better than no faith monagas. Restored my faith. Wow isn't that great and I love that. I love how God can use a book. howl well You know it's ink on paper right in one sense. It's it's nothing but just letters all thrown together on on paper but it but the Holy Spirit takes that that and and use it to touch some. I mean it as a writer. I know you know this meaning. The spirit inspires us as we write in inspires us in the process of doing it and then somehow that same Holy Spirit uses that the book itself as the readers encountering it and then they're connected and it's just Such a testimony to God's grace and power 'cause I know I don't have it in me I mean I you and I both have been talking about are very humble and a beginning so it's clearly it's clearly the act of God not not our own talent and skill them by a man. But I'm so grateful for you and and as I said I've been following you and and in reading your stuff and I'm just so grateful for you and I can't wait till the day we get to meet face to face that's gotTa happen.

"People would laugh at and You know it's one of these. It's one of these things where where you get to the point and you get sick and tired of being sick and tired of being afraid in eventually you you you bring that to the Lord and you say God. I'm I'm afraid. Will you help me. And it's not an instantaneous. Transformation slowly but surely walked alongside us any says son. It's okay to be afraid I got you trust me. I'm strong long enough. I'll see through it in one of the one of the things I'm learning to And I know you're a big advocate of this. The theologist will is God. Doesn't often deliver US immediately. He uses the trials uses the burden. He uses the heard who uses the pain to conform to the image of Christ which is goal. So nothing's wasted absolutely. Yeah and yeah and it sounds like all of the experiences you had. I mean I I see that as God taking those experiences and in a sense transforming that but again not overnight because you had that born again experience agreeance I had a similar one I didn't grow up in the church either but I you know August of nineteen eighty I gave my life to Christ and boy did my my life just change but still some of those old narratives they still hang around especially the childhood ones that I think those ones that get in early. Oh and like you said we we as we get older we know enough to be dangerous but looking back on my own life I remember you know seeing certain events and and at like when I was four years old. My mother had to burglar meningitis and she was in the hospital for six months. And now my little four year old brain didn't know what to do with that. I mean I get a little kids. Couldn't go to the hospital back then. They were afraid it was unsanitary so I couldn't see my mom except from the window second floor window of a hospital for six six months and you know I had no idea but I picked up some narratives also being afraid of being no Being alone in a bunch of those things you pick up along the way that even as I became a person in whom Christ balls delights as I like to say and I and that was very real I still had to go yet. Those old narratives still hang out. You know they still this. They're still there. But as I love how you put a little by little you start to address those and and Christ comes into those experiences and I love how you put a hold your hand and says in my case that to my little four year old version of me. Hey It's okay I'm with you I got you in. Yeah it's it's a beautiful thing isn't it it is it is and I think there are more people that Dole with fear whether if it's a chemical imbalance that produces anxiety disorder or if you've experienced trauma You know there's one out of four out of five young men or sexual abuse of three young ladies in so you have a lot of hurt a lot of pain and Jesus as a healer. Jesus is present. Jesus knows that are suffering is Jesus walk I walk alongside of us. He he wants to be with us in the midst of it. He is Emmanuel. He is A. I'm with you Kinda God absolutely I I want to ask this and I hope it's not too personal but You mentioned earlier that you had a stuttering problem. You don't so I mean what. Let us It's really interesting. People ask me all the time like How did that happen like what did you do? What classes did you go to? And I'll say well what happened was when I realized how much God loved me. The sacrifice McAfee's he made for me in the fact that I am now interwoven into his life in than I am. Righteous Christ is as I begin to love myself and I gained a new confidence in myself in that took place. I didn't Stutter as much. And then they'll look at me and Kinda turn their head sideways and they'll say well what did you do and then I'll explain the same thing and so when I talk about loving yourself L. or loving yourself correctly because of who you are in Christ my new identity change me. It changed my confidence offense. I I think a lot of my stuttering was rooted in childhood trauma and one of the things about growing up in a poor violent community. Unity is that you have forms of. PTSD so violence and poverty and broken. This has psychological effects on us. Well in so I think thing for me What happened was right as I begin to love myself because of who God said I was? I got this new confidence and it literally transformed how I communicate. We'll derm and that's a beautiful story and I totally believe it absolutely and and that's the God I know Who transforms us? But what would you say to someone who maybe has really struggled. I mean they've they've done a lot to try to deal with their stammering or stuttering and they haven't had any real L.. Success I I mean I could see someone maybe saying gee if I just had the faith Durbin has or I just love myself like he said that it would go away what I mean what what would you say about that. Yeah what I would what I would say is first thing is nothing I would hug the person I would say. Gosh I really know how you feel and you know this is this is this is what God has done in me But to be a stutterer does not negate the activity in presence and power of God in one's life I don't understand why Jesus to Lazarus you know. Get up wake wake up wake up from the dead. And why did he do that for everyone right there. Other areas in my life where I prayed and fasted and no change so in God's sovereign dispensing of healing He's chosen to do this in me. But what I would say to. My brothers and sisters who who who who stutter is that even that God is conform. Each image of Christ that you're not damaged and that he's going to bear fruit through of your life I like that. That's great reminds me of Paul stored in the flesh to. I mean when you said you prayed and other areas Paul prayed man he he did not understand and we don't know what that Thorne was. I'm grateful that we don't know what it was because then if we did we'd say why don't have that but in fact we don't know everybody can kind of go To everybody has a thorn right that thing. So that's beautifully said God still can use that. It doesn't mean that were broken. One of the things that you you I. I love something he said in a book about. I'm just GonNa read your own writing if that's okay but you wrote a God has a stunning vision for your life. But he but if you showed it to oh you all at once it would be too much to handle in His grace he gives small glimpses gives us a glimpse at a time and his unimaginable vision for your life can only under under fold as unfold as you have. The courage like David to move into the unknown. That's certainly been my experience. I think about that a lot during when that if if I could go back in time and have gotta just said. Here's a crystal ball. This is gonNA happen it would be too much for me. It would be. Why did you write about that in your own experience? help you understand. You know what I think. The first thing is driven by the text is you have David Alot shepherd boy boy and a third team he's anointed king but yet he spent so many years shoveling sheep Poo and Messa would bears and lions and he's the ease of run of the litter But yet God had a big platform right and so it doesn't mean that we're all gonna be King of Israel that mean that's certainly but I think the bigness of the vision is God forming the heart of Christ in you like I think we underestimate what it means to walk in love and joy and peace and patience and kindness and goodness and gentleness faithfulness in self control and operate with spiritual gifts for the glory of God our joy for the sake of the world. And so that's what I mean by Like I'm blown own away that I've been married for twenty seven years. The first marriage I went to was my own at twenty one. You know I'm blown away to that that that a kid who scored a sixteen. Act is writing books as a doctor. I'm blown away by a lot of those things are so so. That's that's what I mean. I think if God would it would have said Okay Derwin you just got saved and you're GONNA plant a church and it's going to be really really hard. Are People going to tell you. No one wants to attend a multiethnic church You're not gonNA have enough money to plant the church. You have to pray and fast. I mean I could have handled it and I think that that's the case for all of us is that God just wants us to be faithful unlike king. David it's often under the dark skies. were low with God that he's form in us in shape in so what happens in private is what produces what takes place in public Absolutely yeah that's yes I mean I th I. It's a little corny but it stuck with me. I think I heard a preacher. Say a early on in my Christian walk. But it's always stuck with me is that is the illustration Asian that God leads kind of like the headlights on your car. That the headlights in your car. They're just far enough. You know they. They don't go forever reverend ever but they just they're they're far enough in the future the 'cause you need those headlights right to see where you're going and it will give you a couple of hundred feet maybe But you can't see beyond that because you just wouldn't be able to to do that and that's kind of been my own experience that you're you know whether it was as new Christian a a I'm with you derwin. If if as a new believer because I was a somewhat similar to you I was dead middle of my high school class of of like it had a high school class of six hundred. I was three hundred. I mean I was Mr Mediocre rite aid and One of my best friends Tim. Tim Listens to this podcast but he likes to joke. That Nino if if someone back and said it gyms going to go to an Ivy League school and he's going to get his doctorate and he's GonNa Right and he's going to do this and that and and my friend Tim mm says he he tells my story to tell the tell other young people that are maybe thinking. I can't do this that yeah you can let me tell you about my friend Jim or my friend heroin and it's a beautiful thing but again if I'd known right away I would just. I no way I could handle that. No no way you know the era against the fear. I mean like if I'm correct your your book the good and beautiful God hadn't sold like two hundred thousand thousand copies. Yeah yeah crazy. Yeah it's crazy yes so like I mean. Could you imagine that say ten years ar are fifteen years ago. No no I still actually don't believe it. I did that really happen. No Yeah Right. Yeah Yeah that's pretty good for a medal. The Road Mediocre High School student. And I think that's what the Lord loves to do is because only he can get glory then like we can only point to him. Yeah I like that and at that. Yeah that's exactly right I Another sentence from your book in The library book I really really loved it. Fits with what we're talking about now. You're gone only stitches new labels in the hearts of those who are humble not humble enough to admit they need new ones. Yeah I think humility so so crucial really is an and I wish I learned because it's daily for me it's like I it's like I have Nesia. Keep forgetting that that my posture before or God. Every single day needs to be you know Lord I'm your servant here I am. I need your grace. I need your power nothing without you and in one of the primary way that we know our posture before.

"Yeah in it always it always is I love that. So while that's amazing you And and you became a pastor but let's talk about because you write about in the book that that I think it was when you were injured that and I don't know which when wh- what stage of the career was but you were injured so you had a lot of time on your hands and you start reading the Bible. Yeah and from that yes so Did is that we said God gave you the the first time you've ever had a vision of you being the pastor of like a lot in front of a lot of people so So towards the end of my career I was I was getting injuries. Ankles Nico Ankles knees and So I would spend a lot of time in a coal tub and when I came to Christ I just had this overwhelming passion Russian incense to know him and love him. You know bigger did as a football player by studied the playbook I could play the game will. God must have a playbook that play that playbook the Bible so I study the Bible Holy Spirit issues that to draw me deeper and deeper into this love relationship. NJIT Christ and everything. I learned I just began to share I didn't realize that I had a a teaching gift. Or to get the evangelism or gift of shepherding taking the gift of leadership. I didn't I didn't know those things. They just came out of me and so there would. There would be times where I'm in a cold tub or the shower shower in. I would see myself. Speaking in front of thousands of people in these people were black and white and young and old and the Tino Asian and just every demographic and it was strange to me because I was a compulsive stutterer. I didn't want to be a preacher because speaking being was such a hurtful place in my life as a kid get made fun of in class. Didn't ask questions because I don't want to be embarrassed because of my stuttering in so it's pretty ironic. That God uses me as a pastor. A former stutterer is now a preacher but not only that I scored a sixteen on my act to get into college. which is which is very low as the bare minimum and today I have a doctrine. I'm working on book. Number four signed a contract with book number five. And I'm just a surprises. Anybody I I am blown away by God's grace it's a wonderful thing isn't it. I mean I love that. About how when you just get caught up in this kingdom life and all of these men I have this image of my mind like a seed a seed you look at a seed you think. Well I don't know what that is but then that seed could become this amazing plant right in in has within it all of this incredible. And that's what I'm hearing when you're talking. I'm hearing like you didn't know you're a leader. You could speak be a passerby. May All all of these gifts. They were in you that you didn't even there and here. They they come forth. And even the academic side gets turned on. All of that stuff connects. It's just it's such a beautiful encouraging story for people who you know. I think there's probably several listeners. Out there who relate to that journey of thinking thinking you know I maybe. I didn't think I had a chance to do much. But then well hey maybe with the power of God I can do more than even I can imagine which is is a nice segue into the title. Your book limitless life. You're more than your past when God holds your future. which really fits with your own story doesn't it? I mean that's does. Yeah and so what I found. Is that There were a lot of people we we were different but are stories say and what I mean by limitless life is Jesus is eternal life. Jesus is what what Eternal like looks like for a human being and so- limitless life is just another word for attornal life and eternal life. In God's what's kingdom is not something we have to wait for But we get at the moment we say yes to him. Amen and so I just I just want to encourage people people that your story may not be like mine. But in God's redemptive story whatever role he gives you whatever sacred vocation task he gives gives you he will bless you with the gifting whatever vision he gives you he will give you the pro vision to carry out loving God and loving your neighbors. You love yourself through your time your talent and your treasure and I think there's a lot of people who will if I'm not the best if I'm not the greatest thing I really haven't been successful so if we really take that approach. The Apostle Paul was not very successful. His churches turned on him his biggest his house churches were usually about thirty people Jesus followers ran out on him all the apostles except for a John were martyred. He was thrown on an island and Pat Moss. I mean that poor guy I mean. He didn't even have Netflix on an island. So I'm sure he is bored of his mind but But the point join is is. I love the analogy and Jesus uses the seat itself that that that God plants his seed in us. Now here's the thing would seeds. Though in order for seeds to grow.

"Because we're made in the image of God there's this desire to do to be significant. The problem is is. We're like Adam and eve. We go to the tree of knowledge good and evil to try to become like God instead of resting in the tree of life so are significant is not based on the fact that you know you've sold. Hundreds of thousands of books is not based on the fact that I'm a pastor. NFL Player my significance. -nificant is based on the fact that Jesus Christ took my place on the cross that Jesus Christ died for. Our significance is God's and and your worst that was Derwin gray and this is the things about podcast. Well our guest today is Derwin l gray. He is a former professional football player. in the NFL founding and lead pastor of Transformation Church in South Carolina and he graduated from Brigham Young So graduated from Byu and was the ninety second pick in the nineteen ninety-three NFL draft and played for five years with the colts from ninety three to ninety seven and one year with the panthers in Nineteen Ninety eight and he he is married to his wife. Vicky they've been married since ninety two and you guys met in at Byu and have two children daughter Presley Son Jeremiah. So dern and welcome to the things above podcast well thanks for having me. It's truly an honor to To be with you I'm a huge fan of your work and just appreciate what you're doing for the body of Christ so I'm I'm as happy as a baby and a candy store had some wonderful well the feeling is mutual. Actual I have followed you and your work and In your book limitless life which we're going to talk about which I resonate with so much in terms of what you're teaching and and I love the honesty of your your stories and your vulnerability in and so many things which we will be able to talk about. But I thought you know for our listeners who maybe don't know you Clearly I think something that would that people would find intriguing because that that little thing called the national. Football League is pretty darn popular popular Let's talk about the fact that you played in the NFL for five years mostly with the colts. Not with peyton manning. I do want to say that because you believe you left the colts in ninety seven and Peyton. I left the ninety eight. Now's a year to pay. Who was the year? He was drafted right. So you missed him. But you did play with Jim. AM harbaugh right. I did my did form Jim. Harbaugh captain comeback was our quarterback played with two hall of Famers Marshall Faulk in Marvin Harrison. Yes yeah so the the you got to play with some fantastic players but let's talk a little bit about that. I mean life in the NFL for someone one may be listening. Who will maybe watches the game? I mean what. What is that world like? I mean Oh that was a bit ago but not a ton changed. I mean what was it like being Getting to the show as they say what you you know I. It's it's one of these things that For me as a professional football player You really didn't have a lot of time to think of it in those terms of. What's it like to be there on their such a sense of urgency to to be a professional or what I mean by being professional is doing the things that it takes to not only make the team but then make help the team win in so you're so consumed with a sense of urgency of of preparation which is not not only practice but game film and taking care of your body and getting treatment in all those facets go to it and so while I was playing it was more? You know this is my job Miami Professional Football Player therefore this is what you do so you don't have a lot of time to really sit back and go. Wow this is awesome so now now that I've been out of the game for twenty years. Oh my gosh it is so awesome. It is so cool I look back to when I was a little boy the first team I tried out for nine years old. I didn't make the team I got cut and I've really never heard of peewee league. People getting cut but I was that kid who got cut a book. Write my gosh started one full season in highschool school so now that I look back I really see the providential hand of God in my life because it doesn't really make a lot of since that I was that Guy To make it so now I look at it with incredible fondness. I look at it Just think in terms of mander seven billion people on the planet and only a hundred and twenty something people play the position. I played so that literally made made me one of the best at what I did at such a minute level that it's incredible. I remind my kids have been all the time you know. I'm not sure how impressed they are are. But I'm sure impressed with it but you know So I didn't grow up the church. I didn't grow up with Christian understand. I had no clue what the good news was. And God Just wrote a beautiful tapestry in my life to use football to ultimately draw him to it to myself so so football for me was more than a game ultimately determined who I was it gave me affirmation. It gave me a false sense of loud. Oughta gave me a sense of significance but the problem with the NFL is it stands for not for long and so the weight of knowing that one day would in the heat of injuries beginning to take away my capacity to play at the level. I wanted to play and then the the moral aspect of knowing wing. I needed things for forgiveness knowing. I didn't treat nor love my wife the way she deserved to be loved. God use the football Makamba of all those things to ultimately. Draw him to himself. Because I had a teammate. His nickname was the naked preacher but his real name was Steve With grant and Steve Grant was committed. Follower of Christ He walked the walk so it made me listen to the talk that he talked and ultimately after five five years. NFL In ultimately five years of him sharing the Gospel with me on the second one thousand nine hundred seven. Small Dorm Room in Anderson Indiana in training camp. A Call my wife on the phone and I said I want to be committed to you and I want to be committed to Jesus and that's when I ios board again you know You know John. Wesley talks about a a warming of heart. And I really can't put into words other than there was this Overwhelming sense that that I was loved and I cried for like three days straight. I'm still crying is just overwhelming How good and gracious goddess okay? I can't quite let it go. Dur- when naked pre preacher preacher. was he a plan that was he was his name. Was Steve Grant. He was a six to two hundred forty five pound linebacker and Steve grew up in gangs and Miami emme he escaped. Miami took a football scholarship to west. Virginia he was unbeliever any had heard about the stained caught. FCA Any it found out now that the head coach for the West Virginia would go to FCA so he wanted to impress the coach and he would go to to the FCA even though he didn't know what FCA was us and he would go week after week to impress a coach in one week. The coach wasn't there and he was in Steve Grant was sitting in front row and the Lord grabbed hold of his heart heart and he prayed received Christ and his life was utterly transformed and he left the University of West Virginia and he only had had to request of God. Don't let me get drafted by the colts or let me draft by Green Bay. He got drafted by the coal to when he did. He said my goal is is to win as many people on this team to Christ as possible and so I was. I was one of those guys. In from Steve Grants Ministry there several of us that are pastors now. Wow yeah wow. That's amazing while he has so the naked preacher he would take a shower for dry off. Wrap atoll around his waist and develop conversations with teammates about Christ and and he was so artful cool and skillful about he. He really thought as a missionary. What is it that connects with these guys where they were and I was attracted that he wasn't pushy but most importantly I was attracted to the fact that he will salt light like like like gay flavor and he preserve the locker room in darkness? Here's this beacon a light and you were just attracted to it. So he was the real deal he was a real deal. Yeah and there's something to that. Isn't there when I mean when you see somebody we talk a lot about I had a chance on this podcast and we were talking about how that life is more caught than taught. I mean you you catch it from somebody other than it's not just what they teach is certainly is that. But it's just you see that life in memo that light is you're looking for that salt and yes. There's something going on here I you know and I think that's something that you and I both resonate with that. In the first century Jewish context a rabbi would have his apprentices or his students his disciples in would watch watch what he does they will listen to what he teach taught and then they would go out and reproduce what he did and for us as believers. He still wants to sit at his feet. He still wants us to a Receive what he teaches but then he empowers us to reproduce what he did and so so as a football player often tell our congregation. Let your students. Your kids play sports. Even if they're not good they're not good sports. Let let them do band. It's important to be a part of something that you study. He practice. Then you have to actually do it and it matters and so with football you study all week you practice all week. Why so under the lights on Friday night? You actually have to implement what you have learned and I think as Christians. We've almost taken to faith in western modern sense of Una regurgitate memorize these facts. But I'm not really going to live by faith and so living by faith is something that's caught you can teach it but ultimately you have to catch catch it in the sense of this has to be go beyond my head.

"Moving onto jalen Ramsey he wants out of Jacksonville unfortunately for him he will be playing against the dines tonight for Jacksonville in Jacksonville the Jags all pro cornerback has requested a trade but we'll be active again with the trade seemingly coming sometime after the game so C. C. which contender should try to acquire Jalen Ramsey. I don't mean I it doesn't have to be a contender tender for me right now. We only played two games. Everyone's a contender the giants I think we make a quarterback's which we right back into this but I think there are certain places that would be better perform. I think the raiders Jon Gruden got the CAP space. They got a really young teen. They could use the corner play. They could also use a star going to Las Vegas the Tennessee Titans. I do believe coach coons. He was a legendary highschool coach coach at Ohio State. He only coastal hieaux until last year we took the job in Tennessee variable who has experienced at Ohio state went there and got him. He is a great defensive back coach in his hometown there with the Titan the raiders are the titans feel are the smoothest transitions for him for a guy that has that type of skill set big corner wants to play a lot of man to man and as we said before he's from Tennessee and wants to go back there and anytime if you can get a big time star like that in a smaller market like Tennessee yeah I think that they should look into that particularly when he's listed the titans previously before the season as a place he'd like to play sometimes you worry big-time star. Would he be happy going to a small market the size of the market in Jacksonville's not why he's unhappy and because of his roots in Tennessee he has already said Nashville would be a place. He wants to thirty proven that he can get national attention no no matter no matter what I mean he's he's one of the star players in the league and one of the faces of the League that we have on the defensive side of the ball one team you mentioned yesterday for I give a couple of others that that I thought really interesting was Philly Philly. Obviously is a contender philly that is the place where they need. I would argue help the most on the back end of their defense particularly the corners because is I liked now. Come Jenkins. I understand we're talking about phillies injuries those they deal with spate of season ending injuries for Philadelphia with how active Howie Roseman has been and how great he's been at almost manipulating the cap to free up space when they need it you would mention philly yesterday that to me is a really interesting fit. It would be something that if you're the Dallas cowboys and you see wait eagles got who the Eagles got jalen Ramsey at the not even at the deadline a month into the season that could be a game changer. I'M GONNA mention a team no one's attaching them to but I think they have the space the picks they have the need. What about the Los Angeles Angeles chargers now maybe they don't WanNa pay Jalen Ramsey they all they're going to have to pay Joey Bosa two guys but they have the cap space to do it? They they are right now. They know that last year they were this close to being the number one seed in the AFC Derwin James is going to come back at some point at the end of the season they already have an extraordinary corner in Casey Hayward but they're starting a guy who was an undrafted free agent couple years ago at the other corner spot if you added few had Casey Hayward Jalen Ramsey Ramsey winter when James comes back that immediately becomes far and away the best secondary in the NFL well for one next year to pay Joey Bosa Casey's already already making a bunch of money Derwin James you already know you're going to have to pay him now. Both of those guys being from Florida state sometime. You think that oh well. Maybe that would work well. Maybe that might Mike not work so I don't know they haven't been the most contract friendly to their player. Philip rivers doesn't have a contract so to me. That's a lot of money that a team that is not customary to pay a lot of money. I don't think they would have that kind of money tied up in their secondary. Just two more teams quickly obviously yesterday. We talked a lot about the chiefs. It's for the cheap since the best player available at the biggest position of need but I do think the chiefs would have real cap issues with that Patrick mahomes going to become the highest paid player forever a year from now. They paid tyreek Hill. They went they paid frank. Clark may be above market. Sammy Watkins they can get off him next year. If they want to play really well race you're adding the highest paid corner in. NFL history was what Jalen is going to become would be tough to keep an eye on the colts though called I mean the colts have enormous cap space the draft capital. They're obviously going to try to win without being a super explosive offense the culture. If I'm Chris Ballard with Andy I am calling Jacksonville and bill and trying to take their temperature on that but he plays his last game tonight for the Jaguars most likely absolutely that would be my guess about eight players to borough road
"derwin" Discussed on First Things First
"There's only been one game gronk had more than three catches all year long. Only had three touchdowns. They all these incentives in his contract. He didn't really get any Licken because he's does this year is not looked like. Forget the best tight in football. He hadn't looked like one of the five best tight ends and football. Does he have something he can tap into? Because if not Derwin James will erase him Derwin James would be the exact type of player you wanted to match up against prime grunk, much, less a lesser. So I think that is a key. And I think Chris's point of the page from yesterday thought it was such it's almost obvious, but I hadn't even considered it. So I guess it's not that obvious. They last week. They were playing the quarterback who had the least ability to audible at the line, the least freedom to look at what the defense is doing and change it. You said they call it run. It is what you're doing with Lamar. Yes. Now, they're playing the charges are playing the quarterback with the most freedom. The most ability to look at the defense as showing him and say, this is what's better for us. I've got the weight into five seconds before you reveal what type of front you're in. You don't move into Tom Brady points out the Mike everything else is smoking mirrors. If he don't point the Mike he has set the. Texan? He's always going to set his protection. But what San Diego does as unique. They're able to go to this NASCAR type Apax when you think about the giants and the trouble. The again, the offensive line is both a moving inside. Sometimes Melvin Ingram off the ball isolate against the this kid Walsum. Yes. Who allows them to be able to do that? And can't those guys get pressure up the gas because Tom Brady if he ever takes his eyes from downfield. It's only when he gets a gap pressure. So it's gonna be that you get interior pressure on time Brady because his grace e is he's one at least accurate quarterbacks on the move because he's got here's the rush in seize the Russ get to them early and get too often and get more ground. That's the most important part. Can they get to him with four? And if they go out there with these little guys with a wo- sue Bosa and Ingram, do they change the play play power football and make you pay. It's going to be a constant chess match all the I think the chess mass Chit chestnut. Ass is as important match is important between Gus Bradley and Josh mcdaniels what they're going to try to do believe Brady's ability to make plays down the field to punish this defense is a key to the game. But you know, you plan against the patriots defense. They're not giving up more than twenty points, especially at home. So my key of the game on offense of side of the ball for the LA charges. Man. You got to build scores from points. Philip rivers if he don't have four five soundbites talking about. Hi, Bella TEK that was a stupid blitz had all out like Mike dump after. Moments. He doesn't have a couple I down moments where he's fist pumping and things like that. And it becomes really important outside. The secondary of the patriots is really underrated. Can the y receivers and Ken the tight end Antonio gates. He's running slow motion can convert on third down because he's big on third down and the wild card in the game. Well hundred Henry's been a full goal week. When you talk about the guy who towers ACL in the off season training activities hasn't played all season long. He's now been a full go. And and I know fantasy football fans, I know people like all injuries back. He's activated..
"derwin" Discussed on The MMQB Podcast with Peter King
"And I my little snippet of a conversation with a rookie all pro safety of Los Angeles chargers after their great win in Baltimore on Sunday Derwin, James. Back in the Peter King podcasts Derwin James the all pro safety with the Los Angeles chargers before we talk about this game. You just played always your reaction when you heard that. You're all pro as a rookie in the NFL. I was excited on just coming in. I said all the way back to the combine that I wanted to come in and Ernest position and be all pro and make the probe. Also that was one of my goals coming in and like I say just for us to continue to win. And just do what we need to do. Why was this game this year for you? Not that big a transition. It seemed from the very start you played big in big games preparation everyday. My daily habits that I do every day, and my coaches doing a great job prepare me. I mean, I got great teammates. And like I said we challenge each other everyday in this spec. My best out of me every day, and I've been bringing that every day, and it just transitioned to on Sunday or standing in the bowels of Mt. Bank stadium in Baltimore. You guys just gone on the road for the eighth time this year and one football game. You've been to London you've been to Baltimore you've been to Kansas City. You've been all over the map and you've won games. You've won eight football games on the road. Why have you guys been such a good routine this year with raw moments like this coming into other people housing like I say plan char football for four quarters. I mean, we we feel like we always Dylan as a team more and more on those playing rather than just getting over here. Just own a road in the hotels on the road. We love it. We love it. We love we love it love it. I mean is absolutely fun. Why why is that? Asleep in God that we have in a locker room, honestly. 'cause it's fun to be around guys. Like this twenty four seven. I love football coaches that love football twenty four seven. So I feel like it's going on the room. Okay. So the first time you play these guys two weeks ago, they ran for one hundred and fifty nine yards. They pass for two hundred two yards. I don't know the stats in this game because they were inflated because what happened late but through three quarters. You've just totally snuffed them out. What was the Gus Bradley game plan this week? And what was the idea coming in? I do we will put on we got seventy Bs. Unfortunately, we had put seventy Bs on 'cause battling injuries. But I feel like we did a great job of just you know, again speed on the field and just get into the ball. And containing and line did a great job all day of you know, again to the quarterback and not carrying too many rushland foster not not for too many states to get the ball. So overall team the first snap of the game. You. Were there waiting for Lamar Jackson. And it was almost like you. You you were spying just to make sure we're not gonna let Lamar Jackson outside. We're not gonna let him beat us. Yeah. I snap of the game. How did that feel the you? And what did you see that it took off from there like the momentum of defense when they seen that we make that? I when I make the first play I feel like from narrow it was would just win to click an clicking come another place. So like I say everybody star making big plays. And we start getting big sacks interceptions. And like I say offense the ball. So I feel I. We've got a great thing going around here. What do you think Gus Bradley's mantra was this week when he would talk to you guys about the important things in this football, just being able to read your keys, he knew that was gonna be small, you know, coming in with with a DB's, but we we thrive on on being physical..
Chargers vs Ravens: Are You Ready?
"We talked about this on Sunday night when the ravens are running at a running the ball at a pace unseen since the mid nineteen seventies. The chargers are built to stop a lot of good modern offense. That's so true. The chiefs they're playing the Rams and they stick with them a little bit. Yeah. Obviously these play these teams we've seen how it's gone big. I'm packages he flexible up the field pass rush Derwin James can do anything back there. Well, you fill Adrian Phillips in his a dime. Linebacker cover tied to corners can stick with guys and Craig three Deepa corner. Yep. So how do you beat the modern defense? Give them something. That is thoroughly unmodern you give them. Lamar Jackson running the ball more than anybody since the nineteen seventies. I'm in and you also have a situation where the chargers a really thin at linebacker. I believe she's Davis Brown is out for the season. Now, Denzel Perriman is already out. So you're pretty much your best run defenders are not going to be playing this game. Corey leauge. It's already out for the year. That's why I'm picking Baltimore. Even though I love this chargers team. I just think it's. A bad batch. And then you go off to the side of the ball. And watching them play last time, I talked to Philip rivers a little bit recently. And he said that, you know, very rarely this season where we ever just thoroughly outplayed. And that's what happened last time against Baltimore. And I watched the good shrunk of that game. Again, a couple of hours ago, and you just watching this Baltimore secondary the defense in general, but especially the secondary. And so much of what they do. I just watch a play. Like, why don't know what that coverage was? I don't know. What that covers was there. The way they spin the safeties and weta moving around all this all over the place and just how complex everything is.
"derwin" Discussed on First Take
"That hasn't been the case this year when you look at the loss undischarged this year, they may be the most well rounded team in the National Football League on both sides of the ball. I mean, you you already talked about it. You know, Bosa Ingram Derwin, Jane, they got play goes on both sides of the football, and we're gonna get boy possibly getting back at imposition. So if there's ever a time for Philip rivers, especially coming from Ned draft class what big band Manny to me this year that Philip rivers needs to come through. Rag meet tonight, very next point. I was going to say where does he rank among the other quarterbacks in his draft class, which like you said ally. Manning Ben Rothlisberger Super Bowl this? Listen, people me personally, I will put Philip rivers ahead of Ella. And people are always saying, well, how could you do 'cause allies won two Super Bowls and he to Tom bowl MVP? But I just look at the body of work that Phil overseas put together the numbers that he's put together and she's been amazing. So in order for him to complete his career to me this year. Philip rivers needs to go to a Super Bowl ban gets benefit of the doubt. Because he had to go through the guys film Rimas couldn't get and that's Tom Brady and pay manage right? But when you look at numbers when you look at career, you look statistically, you look what a charge organization is. And the stability that they've had it's because of Philip rivers. I know ladainian Tomlinson was that played them early this career. They had really. Good football team. They just never could get over the hump because he better quarterback in this division and better team, and he had to try to get over that. So now like you say would one hundred percent agree on which I know people don't like that on this show. Philip rivers time is now or never right. We talked about being window close in earlier. These guys are not young not spring chickens anymore. Like, they get up there and aid. And the game is ever-evolving. You starting to see the college game being infiltrated into the NFL more. Now, eventually, you are not going to be able to circumvent these players that came in time where the league was transitioning over like homes through fifty touchdowns fifty plus right? This is about to become a normalcy. Look at what Baker Mayfield they're in a season where he didn't start every game. Like, we're trending in the direction of the young quarterbacks have an immediate success in probably gonna start translating to them playing Super Bowls and doing things like that. So like, you said Philip rivers may be on that last tale in of an opportunity to get it done before it makes the four. Transition and before he fifty absolutely well, the time is now Philip rivers. The time is also now for Bama and Clemson as we were only five days away from the third national championship game in the last four seasons to feature Clemson and Alabama. Bama favored by six point. So what chance do you give the Tigers to upset the tide, Marcus? Jimmy this game is fifty fifty right down the middle. And because of what we saw what I saw from Mali question travel ords in this position Notre Dame. We found out wasn't the team that everybody we knew we we we do not name. It wasn't who who everybody thought. They were making the decision to put them in the playoff. Trouble had a great game. Lot of those balls that he threw will one on one to just better athlete than than Notre Dame. Have that won't be the case in this game. So that's the only thing that gives me pause. But when you look at what Clemson did how their Bill how Daboh has built this program is to compete with family last year..
Chargers vs Steelers: Post-game analysis
"Incident. This is sports center right now, I'm on Tony Collins. There was no shortage of controversy in last night's game. Between the chargers and Steelers all eating to quarterback Philip rivers seventh career comeback in a game in which his team trail by sixteen or more points. Let's take you out to Pittsburgh. We'll take this up for the chargers trailing thirteen to nothing in the I keep your eye on right? Tackle Sam Tevi. Let's take a false start. No plaque and Philip rivers. Throws deep to Travis Benjamin for a forty six yard touchdown. He J watt Live Aid at the no com. So in the fourth charges were rally sixteen down three seconds left. Mike bats Leon's for the game. Winning thirty nine yard field goal attempt offsides on the Steelers. So now that's from thirty four yards out. And the Steelers are off-side once again so now bachelor from twenty nine yards. He gets a done Tomlin was asked about the chargers. First touchdown. Guys. I'm not getting into all of the officiating elements of what transpired at high. It was communicated. I'm just not is fruitless it doesn't change the outcome of the game. We're not gonna put it into the ref sans. We need to play better football. Like I said we didn't play we didn't play well enough on offense. Now, let's get you back. I take Steelers sixteen point lead at home at Philip rivers. Engineers a seventh career comeback win to handle a three point loss to improve to nine in three on the season. Pittsburgh oh in three versus AFC west opponents this season. Max was this one more about the chargers or the Steelers? This is about the chargers, and they beat a good team in Pittsburgh on the road. Pittsburgh in the history of their franchise. It never come had never lost the game. They were leading by that by sixteen points. I mean at home in those circumstances the first time ever one hundred seventy wins. No losses and the chargers did it. This is about the chargers. And I've said for the preseason I believe they're going to make the Super Bowl this year. It tested my faith a couple of weeks ago with the turnover at the end of the game Philip rivers at a certain point you go. Listen, maybe you're not just snake bit. Maybe this franchise does it to themselves. Maybe Philip rivers isn't destined to makes. Of course. I had those thoughts not stick with them. When posted gets back. Let's see what's what he was making plays Derwin James making plays. They have stars on the defense. They obviously had stars on the offense with or without Melvin Gordon and Philip rivers guys. He was going down. It piece by piece at times with guys tackling them in the face of pressure sticking his receivers. He was so big time. He lied manning had his time to Super Bowls. Ben Rothlisberger had his time. You know, even the off sides, of course, the charges miss a field goal. And they're going to lose the game. All that. So chargers, right. Like, that's the way they lose sometimes new organization like that a player like rivers just needs a break to get away. What's up break went their way? And they got the win on the road. These are the two they've looked like the most well balanced teams in the AFC so far this season. And the chargers went and took it to them and beat them on the road. This is the charger season story is about them. Yesterday. Score is not about them about. The Steelers, and it was about still because it still has had a twenty three to seven lead and Lewitt. It's that simple to me the charges. Anthony Lynn is doing a fabulous job. He deserves a lot of credit. I'm very impressed with what I saw him. Do. They remain compose. They stayed with their game plan despite being down sixteen that says a lot about the coach their belief in him, etc. Etc. Mave respect for that. They they did it. And when special teams they did it with their running game. They did it with Philip rivers. They deserve a lot of credit for that. I get that. But my bottom line is this you had a twenty three to seven lead on your home turf. A right in those situations. Careerwise franchise wise you like two hundred zero into and you lose a game to the Los Angeles. Chargers. I'm looking at Big Ben Rothlisberger missing a wide open receiver. Nobody within twenty yards FM. Missed a missed that. Touchdown throw. Threw an interception again as well. I'm pointing to that. I'm looking at it. From that perspective. I'm looking at the defense. I'm looking at the secondary. And I'm saying to myself once again, we find ourselves with the Steelers team that is good. But shows us as a season Wayne that is. Good as they are. There is something missing. That says to you. I should not believe in them when it counts whether it's against New England and Tom Brady who by the way, they'll play again, they'll play in a couple of weeks they've gotten the wall leads and the New England Patriots on their schedule. Two of the last four weeks this season. I'm damn near depressed thinking about it for crying out because once again, just win at six straight. But they lost a game. They needed to win. And they should have wanted to get the Denver Broncos. Now, they find themselves as a team that's just gonna win their division. Go to the postseason. And then we got a hope
