"Then the Chiefs and and you have different owners and different, you know, not only different players, but you have to deal with the front office people as well so long. What did you learn from? A marnie's grandfather that you took with you through all those other place all other stops that you had Well Leonard had been firing people in leadership positions here for a while because they weren't getting good results and he's impulsive fire movement get him out of there Pete retzlaff coaches in this kind of stuff and I felt if I'm going to be successful here. I better get to know this guy. I better develop a relationship with and as I got to know him, I better understood him. The other thing he would do in the off-season month year because you don't coach a game you get there in January or February. You don't coach a game until September. So you're there in your office all the time. And mr. Toews is officers right across a huff on me and I'm off Friday night is boy. You're going home boy your your the weekends free. You're going to go home and relax and I'd be walking out. It says stop and have a drink with me. So I'd sit in her. I hated Scott. Okay. I did not like I learned to like Scotch because I pretended to like Scott's to have a common Conversation Piece with Leonard dead. What do you think of that Scotch? Oh, I love it. I love it. That dors is really good down here. I don't know I hated it it just oh I get home. I said Carol, I drive thru scotches when I get home is terrible. Now. My meaning drink is Scott and I'll tell you I don't think I ever drink a scotch without thinking of mr. Toews, you know, really develop, you know, I'm the only guy that's in the history of the NFL teams and never got fired. Maybe I left prematurely but I never got fired and but I had a great relationship with each owner and when coaches asked me, what's the first thing out how to do I always say coach the owner because he's going to be sitting in the pressbox with everybody thinks he knows everything and all they're going to hear about our when it's bad bad bad things that manage the coaches fault. It's amazing Doug Peterson loses again, they forget he won the Super Bowl, you know, it's amazing. Oh, yeah, so I I made an effort. I made a real effort dead. To be in the owner's office when they were in towns that Saint Louis the owner's office was not even in town and in Kansas City, the owner's office was in Texas, but I made an effort to build page create a positive relationship with so when I told him something they really believed in what I said and my process that I was applying to what I was trying to do and if they really be unlocked to go on vacation Leonard would take us on a vacation to get me out of building, you know, and then he take our kids along to you know, and and we would have a great time. We would have a great time you go back to work. So, you know, he knew all my strengths and weaknesses and he I knew his and I know certain areas where I don't go I can remember so distinctive walking in his office one day and I'd say mister Toews. I got this problem and he looked me right up. He looked up over his desk and he says off. Is Dick I heard you to handle the problems.

"Good at what you do and they look at it. You know Thursday. Yeah. Yeah. I always have a little test crash when I go somewhere. Yeah, they go so far morning and Coach. I love to open doors for people to see how they react if they said thank you or they appreciate or maybe they'll they'll carry on it to somebody else, you know, and and that just kind of lets you know, like when my wife and I go all over the country like you do coach we do that all the time just to see the reaction and the people that are around some people don't say anything some people are very grateful and and really stand stop and talk to you and it's just a way to something small gestures like that that my dad always drilled into my head that you should be grateful and help other people, you know, give you a story on Kurt Warner. He first comes into the league he's dead. Minimum showering as my third quarter back in nineteen. Ninety eight. Okay, and all of a sudden he's making 340,000 whether it was at that time. I'm either rich man in his mind. He and his wife would go out to dinner and invariably he would look around the room and he would pick up somebody sitting there with their children's check and log in as you walked out honest-to-god not once often often. So, you know, that's the great example. I can give you what you're talking about a person actually being truly grateful for his opportunity and spread that gratitude to somebody who doesn't even know, you know, amazing always say suggesting is not a sign of weakness know remember my grandma was his saying with civility is not a sign of weakness. So I think that those are great less. Well, you should stay off. Your use that room the term. Well, it is really improving. I've said God is really improving and I heard me say that, Gotti really unproven and say, you know sitting home, you know, you can die of improvement. You said my own father died of improvement. This is he told me on your great-grandfather. He would see him when he was real and the doctors would say use improving then he passed on like like your grandfather said he died from Improvement, right? Oh my goodness. That's a good song. Yeah. It's a good lesson Improvement. I mean we have to really make the action happen not your grandfather used to say in Carroll had this sticker on the refrigerator four years. There are givers and there are takers Benadryl. That's that's how he that's why I love to give somebody out of a hundred dollar bill and never saw one before dead. What's interesting to me is that you've dealt with owners right you had to deal with owners as the head coach and GM's and you have to deal with every side of it as being a head coach. And so that's when you were with Leonard for all those years, you know, and and then you go on to the Rams and then the Chiefs and and you have different owners and different, you know, not only different players, but you have to deal with the front office people as well so long. What did you learn from? A marnie's grandfather that you took with you through all those other place all other stops that you had Well Leonard had been firing people in leadership positions here for a while because they weren't getting good results.

"I signed the contract that was big money in those days and I wasn't underpaid I was paid better than the average coach in the NFL at that time and they didn't have deferred compensation and they didn't have Leonard tose to cover up mistakes you made financially and he paid for him. Okay, so, you know, it's different. Yeah, I I sell you should say it's about time they start paying the coaches, you know, the first guy that gets fired when teams lose the coach if he's at important then you ought to pay him that way if he's the most important. He's the reason wage. You lose and he might be part or a big biggest percentage of the reason you win guys like Don Shula it Bill Walsh forced ownership to start paying a difference makers because they found out that a coach could come to a program that's been losing and change it changed the community changed the culture on the team and changed the win-loss record and they said well my God, you know, I had I had three coaches or NFL Hall of Fame right now to have told me in the old days coaching football coaching positions off in the NFL are are something the owners look for is they have to have it because it's mandatory they they would just as soon not allow the coach to become the figure out of the organization. So that wasn't my case with Leonard those but there have been coaches, you know that had coached in that environment, you know that yes, so when all of a sudden they started a new club More it's because guys proved that they could go somewhere and change at all and just change it all dramatically. You know, Sean Payton is done in New Orleans and you've done so much off the field coach, you know, your empathetic heart radiates. So, I mean, I think that you know, you're so charitable what drives you to want to give back off the football field. What are some of the things that make you feel compelled to do that? Well, you know, I have an unbelievable respect for the blue collar worker to my family. My dad was a black our work agree. She and I never saw him with Clean Hands until we buried him. Okay at Seventy-Six years old with the guide of cancer of the pancreas, but he was always greasy always dirty always working seven days a week. It might our family never went on a vacation. So and I see hard-working people. I have great compassion for him and log, Get a I see how I was raised. I see people that I was raised by that were friends of my family like my wife's family and the Freddy any family is people that are all grow up I grew up when I'm still affiliated with these families, but their other Generations is that I just identify with him much more than I do somebody else way up in the upper class. Now, I respect them and I like to be around people that have been extremely successful financially in every way because I just like seeing how how they do it, you know wasn't an active or was it a gift or did they inherited it, you know more often or not. It was because they were honest and worked hard, you know. Yeah, that's right. Yeah, and and I know you know, I forward to view emails from people saying oh coach for me all did this for me and coach for meal. So you have almost such a a touch that everybody feels connected to you and you given birth So much certainly in the city of Philadelphia, whether it's the wrong McDonald House or finding time as you're walking through a hospital and somebody will fly you down and say coach my mother sick. Will you come say hi and it's really amazing. You put all your energy into stopping and making people feel good about themselves because obviously you really like yourself too and you have confidence in your own skills. And that's really just so refreshing and so unique and what makes like all the Gratitude attitude if you're really grateful if you really sincerely grateful for everything is that regardless of took a lot of money whatever it is. If you're like, we just lost our entire red wine crop in the Napa Valley due to this week. Okay, no red wine for 2020 off Carol's first comment to me as I'm about ready to cry on my shoulder her shoulder. She says, you know, did we ought to be grateful? We didn't we didn't know one's house burned down the vineyard didn't get burn up. You know, it's not in Flames like a lot of people out there are experiments. And so, you know, she's right. You gotta be if you remain like I say gratitude attitude, you can make a positive out of a negative you keep adding the negatives to it. It pulls you down. You don't look forward to getting up in the morning. You know, you really don't and off. I see another people traits all the time that I appreciate and they don't ignore evaluators, you know, you know, if if you go to a a market in the teller wage is you leave The Institute what a great legacy was, you know, and you can leave another in the same building and what what a pain as us, you know, right? So I just I just believe that that that you went and also like believe when you recognize something you really appreciate it. You better let the person that stimulated that thought know. Yeah, you know, I've said that many yup said many times Buenas of new really good at what you do and they look at it. You know Thursday. Yeah. Yeah. I always have a little test crash when I go somewhere. Yeah, they go so far morning and Coach. I love to open doors for people to see how they react if they said thank you or they appreciate or maybe they'll they'll carry on it to somebody else,.

"I was in eighth grade my dad he was a mill guy here in Pittsburgh. He worked for a plant called PPG and when I was in eighth grade, he bought me a new pair of shoes to play football and the first practice I hurt my foot and I said Dad, I think I broke my foot. He goes, I don't care what happened to I just bought you those clits. You're going to wear them all year just tie your shoe Tighter and I did I played the whole season change when you had it didn't hurt you. Did it it did you go through a little bit, but you learn how to fight through pain and deal with it. And and you know, I still deal with that mentality today and I think that's what made me a job an okay quarterback. Yeah. And so I grew up. That's my dad was the same way my dad. I think he could be the originator of verbal abuse. Okay, you know unbelievable way of getting on your butt. Right? Well, I think my grandmother would say injured is different than her like an idiot. He is dead. Different than being hurt like winners played her if you're injured then you know, you'll deal with that but I think that that gritty mentality which was so exciting and you know, having them being able to kind of play through that. I think it's why we I fell in love twice. I fell in love with football just watching people out there give it their best and go out there and play and do everything they can to make those wage yards. Yeah. No. Yeah when you can see that in personality to some people said to me, you know, you're a good motivate. I said, no, I was a good evaluator. I brought people that I saw a certain characteristics within their personality and performance before we ever drafted him or signed him and that's why they're here, you know, and they might not be the biggest fastest smartest, but there's something I liked about the combination of all my you attribute, you know, but I'd say we we had some lousy drafts in Philadelphia my last couple of years or do we didn't do as good a job drafting when we had first and second third-round picks as we did when we didn't have them off. Learned a lesson there too later on so coach when you would go from you went from high school to college to you know, all the stops you did before you got to the Eagles. Did you keep a notebook that you do things the way you wrote down to to remember all the stuff or did you just have a steel trap up there? They remember everything. I'm a big writer Downer. Okay, I've got I've sent box office staff of football stuff I've sent box is full of Jon Gruden was a personal friend and and how the young coaches I've sent him stuff that on the more mature side of my career when I was doing it took, you know, I had assistance to to type it on and write it all and all that kind of stuff. But yeah, I believe in writing it down. I really do in you know, I Martin he's been with me when I have a choice, says personal presentation is takes an hour to give and do it. Right and I work on that every week every day. I could go down I could go get it out now and they're laughing. My work done at might have been yeah middle of last week. I think of something I read something it's better expressed what I believe than I would express it. I incorporate that in my presentation. So, you know, otherwise you get stale, you know, you don't grow it and I read to learn not to like I say just to enjoy and relax and get careless always looks at me things that crazy because she read three books a week to just relax and is it a great book?.

"Think that's most impressive to me. So he understands, you know, we're football starts and and and what how kids are made and Thursday. Professional athletes, I think we went through all that so joining us in the Huddle today super bowl-winning coach of the st. Louis Rams coach Vermeil coach. How are you doing today? I'm doing fine. I'm Marnie. I thought you know as you know, I I was screwed up. I had this on my calendar for tomorrow morning. And as I said to Marty as we were visiting, I you know, I'm so spoiled all my years pro coaching. I had somebody with a desk job my office. It kept me straight and did on my calendar and all that kind of stuff and I screw up my personal calendar all the time. It's embarrassing I get mad at myself for doing I guess. Yeah, you're so flexible that you know how to, you know maneuver on and off the field coach and get I hope so cuz great to see you haven't changed at all. I got a lot of em, I saw you last in Atlanta few years ago. Remember? Yeah. Yeah. No, that was great. And you know, I've probably been about the same since I retired I drink too much red wine and cheese. You know that that's kind of how it goes happens. Yeah happen but coach, you know, our show is really we want to find out about you from your humble beginnings how you started it generally about how you fell in love with sports. It could have been you know, somebody that that took you out in the yard every day like your dad your grandfather for me. It was It was kind of that way I could have been an idol you had watching them grow up or you you listen to on the radio things like that. What was that humble beginning for you and how you fell in love with sports? Well my humble beginning I was born in Calistoga the North End of Napa Valley at that time eighteen hundred people in town hundred thirty kids in my high schools in total 29 in my law school class. But anyway, so very humbled beginning. I was born in my great-grandfather's home and the Italian side of my family in nineteen. Eighty as I told Marnie. We restored that home after the 80 super power wash and I ran out of money and her grandfather let her toes came in and paid for the rest of it. He paid 55% of the remodeling job. And so, you know, I've always been a debt to her off-ramp and I always considered him one of the finest individuals I had ever been around in my lifetime. But anyway, that's where I started with the high school. They're played football are we have 20 kids on the team and my senior year A guy by the name of Bill would came to Calistoga in his first head coaching job out of college and he is the guy probably along with my dad always talking about how much he loved playing dog. School football himself sort of centered me and got me directed in a direction. I hadn't planned to go to college. I was going to stay and work in my dad's garage. He was going to tear down the old barn and build a new it for me on a project that kind of thing my high school football coach. Bill would said, you know, if you want to a young man you could you could play college football and I had no one ever told me that and that that sort of stimulation he said but to do so, you're going to have to go to Junior College because you haven't done anything for four years in high school. And I said, well, you're I know that you know, I know that I rebuilt a 36 Ford, you know, as how I drove that but anyway, so he he started me thinking about it and I respected him so much. We remain close and I went to Junior College and had little success. I walked on a San Jose State made the team scholarship and but I stayed in touch with go would and the more I played the game the more I was fascinated by it not so much in the playing side of it, but the X's and O's the the intricacies. And the building of a team and all so I decided I wanted to be high school football coach and fortunately for me, I got a job after getting my Master's in 1958 at Del Mar High School as an assistant football coach and head track coach and I was there one year and I got the head coaching job at Hillsdale High School in San Mateo right across from the airport. Just go there and I was there a few years. We won Championship my second year my third year we got beat we didn't have a great team. I went to Junior College coaching as an assistant coach from there. I went to Stanford University as the Freshman coach and it just every time the phone rang and it was about a job. I took it and and I liked every job I had I just you know, it was an opportunity to grow maybe get a little better and learn more and you know, Bill Walsh was a good friend because he was a San Jose State when I went there as a graduate student and we became good friends to develop a relationship. Hip and then from then on it was always football football football and I recognized I didn't want to stand in a gym and watch kids take a shower all my career. So each time. I had an opportunity to advance in the football situation. I took it so we moved a lot Carol and I moved a lot and you know, we had three children. Yeah by the time we were like twenty eight six twenty-seven years old and may I have eleven grandchildren because of it, but that's where it all started the influence of a high school football coach. And when I said, she's I'd like to be him. I'd like to I'd like to go to high school football game amazing coach because you know, everybody that knows you or is even had an opportunity to hear you speak. They all say the same thing like listening to coach for meal the lessons that you can teach everybody through your coaching. So you had great coaches and then you passed all those what do you think would like one of the one things that you learned from one of the coaches that you had that you have now implemented in your coaching career wage? That's good. The strongest contribution anyone met one single statement was John wouldn't okay. When I was at UCLA recruiting season had ended the day after it off in John wooden's office sort of pouting. I said coach wouldn't I lost some real good players to USC and he looked me right in the eye. He leaned forward at his desk and he said, you know coach don't worry about USC's. Don't worry about those. She loves they're always going to have better players than you just work to make every player you have on your roster the best you can possibly the best he could possibly be both on and off the field and everything else will take care of itself. So and I have from that time on I have had that behind me and reinforcing my thinking and begin forcing my actions and decisions making based on that statement, you know a simple but very salad. Well, you know, it really goes with your whole theory of you believe in people like I've never wage Around somebody like like you because I I watched you when I've had the opportunity to see what you've done. But I think that believing in somebody is really truly like this great this great way to encourage them and to make them the best that they can be both on and off the field and you might need my old by approach if I interject you're talking believing in me. My Approach was first off the most important person to be believed is the person believing in himself what you do as a leader and a coach what I try to do is reinforce this believe that he really has something to give he has a gift and what he has to do is to work and develop that gift. My job is to find what.

A look At The Conference Title Games

"Conference title games yes them is certainly the most noteworthy thing John is is there any read advance and it's a big topic around here it's been a big topic on the V. I. P. ever since the games finish up yesterday and you look I'm thrilled for running it's absolutely wonderful I know you know many millions are some you know hundreds of thousands whatever it is of eagles fans are not we did a poll last week is about eighty to twenty or something like that rooting for any read and I think it's awesome I mean a you know here's any read back in the circle fifty second longer stretch other than Dick vermeil second longer stretch in NFL history wow of someone getting in the Superbowl than not getting to the Superbowl out there and then swing back around again there John and it was a former player for any rate I know it's something that you know you're happy for for yeah if for for everything that did indeed man we we all have a lot of respect for Indy everyone who played form you know former players because we always knew he'd have our backs you know leg as annoying as it is to the members of the the media and the fans trying to get information out of the guy that is always for a purpose you know he wants to make sure his players know that they're safe yep and he is a stand up guy and I believe in him as a coach I believe in him as a leader I know a lot of people bad mouth then the for whatever reason I'm telling yeah I played for the guy the guy cut me a guy called me up and said yeah we're gonna have to go ahead and let you go yeah yeah yet I still root for him because he's a good person and he is a smart coach and he has sacrificed everything for this sport his given too much for this game I'm telling you Andy Reid deserves everyone's support in this town because he broke himself to try to bring this city a championship and unfortunately we failed as a team on that front back when you know sure I was part of it any any was part of that to be clear yeah he made some big mistakes in big games yes he sure was mistake but I I certainly I do not hold anything against Andy Reid now I am thrilled for the guy and so I tell you what the only did the biggest thing that comes to the date comes to my mind when I see him is banned I'm worried about his health lookout gigantic kia guy the stress is getting to him I think but he is now poised to be doing this year after year Joe Andy Reid with Patrick by home right that combination this this offense doesn't look the same as it did I mean this is now your evolved into the a conglomeration of a lot of college schemes with the traditional west coast offense and with the speed he's got with that quarterback he's got they are unstoppable offensively that is so fun to watch yeah it is he Eddie read is like Madonna any read changes and evolves and adapts with the time he does there are so many coaches who don't and they see the door AT read is a much better coach today then he was when he coached in Philadelphia because it matters to him that much that he continues to work he continues to to hammer it out you know like and and and change he knows that he doesn't have all the answers so we continue to seek for more answers and you can see it in the way he calls a game you can see it in the way he designs place uhhuh I wish we had more of that we need more of that here in Philadelphia we are stagnant he is not he is in the Super Bowl because of it and I'm really excited for him because I I now I don't know how I feel about who's going to win this game yet yeah but I'm excited for him that he is about to be doing this an awful lot in my book be a viable option for a super you know soon I'd recommend look at the alley I think you're gonna see this three or four times over the next ten years how bout that all right eight eight seventy nine ninety four nine if would react to any read back in this terrible is the chiefs and the forty Niners big red to the big game for the first time since the two thousand and four season second time in his career and again your reaction at eight eight eight seven two nine ninety four nine four I think it's awesome I Joe one thing you know and and there's a lot to discuss stemming from the games yesterday beyond just the the any re factor which is certainly on the table almost all showing frankly will be for two weeks but one of the main things that hit me watching both games yesterday what what Casey did in the in the first game or shall I say Wilma homes that had and what San Francisco and I mean what San Francisco did in the second thing one of the things that really jumped out to me as an eagles fan as we relate it back to the birds and what we say because you know when the eagles are in the in the in this these rounds of the playoffs a lot of times on Mondays we we we convene as a fan base and say alright we we just all this stuff what does it mean for us as eagles fans what we saw and how it relates to the eagles and I'll tell you this I guess you know you know division around I was telling you well young eagles they maybe good on this and on that day beat Seattle planted doesn't hit where it's about a blind one thing that really hit me yesterday John seen the the excellent teams and they were the excellent teams I mean obviously the two in particular the one is it really the eagles not only were not close to the two teams that advance the Superbowl but is I project for anything it's very tough because there's going to be free agents out free agents in new draft picks is going to be turned over there always is but when I project forward one thing that really hit me John watching the chiefs and watching the forty Niners is that I actually walked away less confident about the eagles and I had been and I know you've been kinda you know telling me I I I'm I'm a little too high on the birds and I'm watching two things in particular yesterday which really kind of started chipping away at my confidence the first is more homes you made a comment yesterday last night last week John that that I thought was fascinating you referred to Patrick well homes as Michael Jordan in nineteen eighty five basically saying this guy's about to be maybe the best of all time yeah and it's just like the early early days of his career yeah and like all your weight to you see more jump to the next five six seven eight nine years right so I'm watching the homes and obviously the one touch in a particular you know he also does he throws the ball away decisively he can get around the edge you can get around fast offensive vans that think they have any gets around his decision making is Russell Wilson ask his arm is phenomenal he can throw off off your every plan for possible and so the first big takeaway is he'll be that way since he's like and I hate to say it and maybe this is just the obvious but what's is nowhere near that guy like escape but he won't be know your home yeah to take what he will when it's all said and done he will be the best to ever ever played yeah I mean so like I'm watching it and I'm thinking to myself like number one can we stop and I'm not seen as the DA bass went through December played great football and we'll never know what what he could have done versus Seattle via real player often a plane without get knocked out but I mean the one thing that has to never be said again is the idea the Carson once you become the best in football he he he actually can't become the best in football Patrick my homes is and barring an injury will be the best player pro football for the next decade yes and not only can we it's not become number one the the seismic difference between what wherever winches whether winches fiber whether you seven or whether he's ten to my homes I mean it's it's like it's like them it's like the moon and the sun is not even close it's it's not closer not close the irony of all this is that we are going to end up having to be Andy to win in the future I'm telling yeah that that's the way it's cheap yeah now yeah that's that's a real hot so I mean I'm curious if the mall homes thing as it relates to wince as relates to the eagles struck others because that really really hit me again eight eight seven two nine ninety four nine four the other thing John that they created you know what I'd called some some some pessimism with them as relates to the birds is are the other squad the one yesterday and I will emphasize the word squad not quarterback squad San Francisco now that is a roster not a quarterback that is a roster that is dominant and that is a far cry from what is here with the birds I mean you know you talk about football be a game of blocking and tackling they block they tackle their physical their fears they're punishing their offense their defense I mean rob air can straddle wise finance that at at the positions that matter where you need to be fat thank you god yeah I mean I was really struck and I don't care is where everyone's at eight seventy nine ninety four ninety four not just on the conversation about whether you're happy Freddie remaking the Superbowl or not what do you think he points she's taking the Cano high yesterday we're needs to actually win the Superbowl to get there but also how all of what we saw yesterday relates the eagles and in a nutshell I will tell you that I'm less confident about the birds and I expected because I saw them the brilliance of my homes and the absolute superlative roster construction at the San Francisco forty Niners here is around one AM at eight eight eight said exactly the model year of you you realize I John Lynch like John let's what he did this year all his choices were the right choices all of the players he traded for all of the draft picks seem to work out like what he did is reminiscent of how we two years ago right I mean this is how you become executive of the year it's just a charmed season for John Lynch my thing is I think he has a much better chance to sustain that level of charm it Dennis then how we like I'm beginning to think that how we executive of the year thing was more of an out liar then what it should be that we gave him a lot of credit and he deserved it Hey absolutely but he has not maintain that level of performance he hasn't how
