"Asking for them in a polite way that them to come back on the field and he didn't want to come back out there but I didn't notice until we get to the pro bowl one year. Reggie white reminded me that what I was saying office alarm about taking in his car that I was wrong for doing that we need to pray about. Hey we'll pray about you but you in Green Bay. You wouldn't just talk the offense of Weiming because you wanna Brett farve out of thin you bring up for team Mike home. You had a louder fans not to so if we beat them in Green Bay. I'll be on the fan when it's time you guys go. This is our stadium. This is our stadiums. John we hear so many stories about Christmas time playing with the Vikings taking so many Danny Green stories but a lot of stories of the Christian Randy and give me a good Chris Carter story that we haven't heard from Chris yet something he was a little flavor of what it was like playing with Cruz Cardi was it was it was an honor and just a pleasure because Chris came to work every day and he won game you we were kind of feeling down and Chris all of a sudden elect upon himself to all of a sudden say crews card is ready. I don't know about the rest of y'all. They are still in school where they asked. Are you present Nick right are you present and I went around the whole locker room may raise up hand and he would do that hand or you ready it because he's a little crazy know what you know a little bit crazy play play football. You know it's a unique game you out there. You give it to you all every weekend. You have to be a little bit crazy but you know what though I type of crazy. I'll play with and any day. Let's go talk about your favorite team. Quick people have a lot of questions about Kurt cousins when he came over they gave him the big contract you make your home in Minneapolis. You're close to the teen close to the organization does kirk cousins have the type of stuff that you and I because we had a Goldman. We've thought Dinnie Green was going to be the first African American coach to win the Super Bowl and you and I thought that we were going to bring a world championship to the vikings does kirk cousins have have that type of stuff. Johnny put the purple over the Hump. Well you know I'm not one to ask that question but I tell you what though whatever decision that the organization makes abide by that is company me again. What would you say to kirk cousins views second yeah you talk about his money? I need that bank account. Tell them that here. We go back here with Sarah Newstalk as soon as the thunder traded Russell Russell rests West Easy for you to Russell Westbrook to Houston for Chris Paul Vegas said Houston got a little bit better. Are there odds to win the title went from the player. They changed this one. They now have the fourth best odds in the League when the championships on the books the Clippers and the Lakers Sarah maybe you can say his name aim now a couple of times for me. The rockets say serious title threat now. I think they are one of this group of ten or eleven or so teams that we have in the N._B._A.. That should believe that they have a legitimate chance to win a title the way the I'm not a gambler like nick unfortunately so sometimes the odds. I'm not exactly sure how that will work so the fact that was prior to the straight if you bet one hundred dollars on them to win the title you WanNa thousand now if you've got one hundred you win seven and my I believe the rockets doc. It's got better yes do. I believe they have the fourth best as we sit here in July with a lot of questions away Rosser Shakeout do I think that they have what I listened as the fourth team to have a chance to win the title no that's not where I put them. I would put Philadelphia via ahead of where they're at I would I would take a serious look at Utah at Denver. There's this group of teams..

"They have better shop lockers than they have steals players and something else, I think is a very important takeaway from this game something that we that came up in the Paul Millsap stuff with Mike Bologne, quite Leonard spent a lot of this game in foul. Trouble. The first half basically spent the entire first half in foul. Trouble and Nick nurse still kept him in there. He played well, he managed through the foul trouble. There was a time that it looked like he was going to get a fourth foul in the second quarter. Instead that foul went to Dinnie green who then got into a little bit of foul trouble zone. But that helped them seal this victory for earlier because was fantastic. The other thing it's looking like that marked the soul trade is already paying off in a big way. He has completely shut down Nicole vuckovich who is now six out of twenty one in the series only at six. Points tonight in twenty five minutes. DJ Augustyn who is the hero in game. One struggled to one out of six here. Aaron Gordon really the only guy who had going another big problem with John Isaac oath six from three point range. And they were putting Cal Lowry on him. The oh, the the register very versatile. So Larry also spent a lot of time on forty eight as well. But whoever was guarding John Isaac whether that was Leonard whether it was Lowery, whether it was Siaka was just not guarding. All Isaac couldn't hit the six three pointers when he was open, and so many other actions all those August in vote-rich pick and rolls got totally gummed up. All that. Handoff stuff got gummed up. They also added a nice wrinkle when they ran the set plays for the wide pin down out of the left corner from forty eight with YouTube rich where if the rep does heard the play call or knew it was coming just for that possession. They would have CRM guard forty-eight instead. So if they needed to switch it they could have Siaka guarding vuckovich in the post instead of getting Lowery stuck there? That was really a nice. I I'm sure they talked about that as a coaching staff and good job getting them to execute it as well the pick and pop really was not there. That's something that they could have gone to more. But again, you had guys stunting over Lowry is awesome. At that. Just materializing took a couple of charges in this game to Yovich was just really made unconfirmed. He has no chance in the post against Kosovo whatsoever. A consult did get in foul trouble early. And we thought maybe could get it going against Baca. But they didn't go to him that much either something I wanted to bring up was the you. You mentioned the versatility of Toronto's defense, we saw a huge benefit of that one quite got in early foul trouble because they were able to capably put Siaka on Aaron Gordon, then quite had these I meant the basis I'm on John Isaac, not really gonna get quiet. Further foul trouble there. It'd be still could have gotten enough to call his his I think it was the second foul was on a bad screen, but it made life easier on qui- was loud. When he's so what he was so dominant offensively to stay on the. Floor. Also, having John Isaac for from Orlando's perspective that makes it easier. But having Seok them with the capacity to guard, basically anybody on the floor it it's degree. It's kind of like the WD forty that makes a lot of these things work so smoothly and Danny green only took four shots. He he didn't take any shots at all. Until I think it was the second quarter. But you still provide a lotta value defensively, and they had plenty of other guys to score. And after all the hand wringing and concern Kyle Lowry. Eight for thirteen from the field to for four from three twenty two points, seven assists, two turnovers and a series of nice defensive place..

"What's going to get me noticed? What's going to get this? This is the head coaching carousel time. What's going to get me on the radar screen, but that's that's inherently selfish and US players all the time to put their own self interests beneath the team's best interest, and the coaches should be out in front in doing that. At all. I was in Minnesota when Dennis Green he fired offense. Coordinator Jag burns fired him right on the spot doing exactly which you talked about Dinnie green wanted to run offense a certain way, Jack had a certain ideology that he wanted to change the offense and put his spin on it. Because a lot of these offense is on the west coast. And I'm a play action from north Turner earnings Zambezi. But every offense has the personality of the guy cone defenses to you can be thirty four you'd be forty three. You can be nickel dime, whatever. But the personality of that per. Ersan will be on that offense, Brian Billick. He was appointed from tied in Costa into coordinator. Now, Brian I used to talk and Bryant taught me a lot of football, and Brian he was ambitious at a young age ultimately end up being a Super Bowl champions the head coach in Baltimore. But Brian, I ain't gonna be no fool. I just watched a guy gets shot by Dennis Green. I'm not going to try to man, Chris try to impress. Now. I do have some concepts in some things that I believe are personnel is better suited for. And he immediately changed that. But in a stab him what the coach one that was the number one thing. And then once Brian became high flying we start breaking records. Then Brian started applying for jobs, but not in that order is because he had the talent we had a great system, and he established himself what the coach one in him and Dennis Green. We're in cahoots as far as resurrecting our offense, which ultimately led to us breaking all those records. Minnesota. And if you look at the Hugh Jackson Todd Haley, thank you had every right to ask for what he wanted to ask for that was his role. Now, he wasn't an position to get it. Then that that whole thing was set a propeller from from the start, and you can have an honest conversation with someone coming in and things can change. But as the head coach, you have the right to ask for what you what you want and get what you want. And if you don't if it doesn't work it's not on the coordinator. It's on the head coach a weekend. No pretty quickly deep but wasn't doing right. When we see the game plan this week when they play we're going to see a difference enough or we're going to say, that's what they were trying to do. That's what Zimmer wanted to do. I would imagine it's going to skew one direction or the other. And as Chris said when there was that change and someone. Err on the side of. Yeah. You're you're you're going to give you want runs here. They are here. They are in bulk. And during the game as a head coach you okay? Okay. Pull it back a little bit. And just as you go. But yet imagine you'll get what Zimmer one this is my concern in Minnesota and coach I know you're a fan of continuity in this league, it's very very important Vikings last year's four different offense of coordinators north torn north Turner a guy I respect I met with nor he's now calling plays for Carolina Panthers. He's still in Lee heating quit coaching because he didn't want to coach. There was something going on there. So yeah, I respect them the will family they've that's their head coach and they're allowed him the pick. But they gotta get that offense of side of the ball figured out. And also I believed that his stress he's been stressing about the offense. It's affected how the defense is playing last year number one this year number Levin. So whoever he turns it over to him. I hope he can just. Contrate on the defense because that's where ZIM has made his Mark in this league for a long tongue. Here's the ironic thing pets Schumer ran the ball at the highest percentage of anybody last year. And he's the one that got the head coaching up. So it wasn't it wasn't about the passing. He did what he did what Minnesota wants to do who they wanna be and how they work out at team success..

"I'm also going to do some things defensively, I'm not gonna put my safety. One on one five yards off the line this Kim agenda most critical down in allow them to have that explosive place. So yes, we're going to control the temple of the game. But here's the thing. Jerry's right. They're not gonna have a chance can be if they score fief. It's fifty four points to win. What if it's half that to win? What if it's twenty seven what if you got to like, what do we realistically think a great defense that's called the Cowboys defense in two thousand eighteen a great defense by this year standards, their top five in most categories. So at least a very good defense. What do we think they could hold? A saints Rams team to twenty-seven thing to I got to be careful del sewing, turn the ball over ten times. This you can't sitting turn over five times. Because you give you give Zeki them extra five possessions. How many yards rushing do you think they're going to have against that an eat up that clock? Sure. And that was an outlier game for all parties. Five turnovers isn't. Fifty. Absolutely, right. But I think it depends on how they get to the points. I get to in how Dallas responds in those situation. So if they go fourteen nothing that Rams or whoever go up fourteen nothing and Dallas responds by oh, we got to throw the ball every single down. We gotta get an empty. We gotta be someone that were not then that fourteen can go to thirty five in a heartbeat. But if they can get to the point where they can say true to their identity, and and climb back into those games to me that's a much better approach. It's the response to different situations. And I think early in the season you saw Dallas not being who they needed to be and how how much that affected them. And that's what Seattle in the game. You mentioned they were. It was a one score game against the Rams, and then Fowler makes the strips acting up. Scorn to go up twelve five minutes, then football game Seattle still run on the football Seattle, even and by the way, they were in position to win that game late. They got the ball back. They so they stayed true to themselves even spot where two scores. Five minutes. You feel? You have to pass. So there have been teams that have looked at the Rams and we'll see about the saints. The saints defense last week's played its best football the year allowing fourteen and seventeen points. Boo thinks there are things they can exploiting against that Rams defense in particular. But it is ultimately very hard for me to think of scenario where if at any point you Dak Prescott got a match points that he has any shot. It would be about the defense forcing some of those turnovers. The way the Rams did to the chiefs and the way the chiefs into the Rams for that matter. It would be about Zeke having being able to be consistent with that running game. But I I also think we have to be fair here. The Rams and saints are without question to three best teams in football. That's who they are. They cowboys. We don't know if they're one of the two best teams in their own division. One thing. Dinnie green always taught me we got a lot of private meetings in God rest is so easy to tell me, Chris we're going to be a high flan offense defense going to be undersize go and try to get after the quarterback. But man one day is like basketball. We can't put the ball in the bucket. Chris. We're gonna lose. No matter where we play so Patty, Mahomes, they gonna have some cold days. Can they win a game when they're off because they're not going to be completing eighty percent seventy five percent every game in the NFL? That's what it becomes, Tom. Brady's all for two and a half three quarters. And then he catches fire can these quarterbacks when they have those off days can they be as a -ffective as we saw Monday. I don't think so. So that's what we're going to have to answer as we get into the playoffs coaches. He'll that later on God's second break coming up is this Kevin Durant last season with the warriors. I..

"And how they were gonna use golden tape. All right. I would have come up with something more creative to get golden Tate involved in the game plan with two weeks to prepare. See I get what you're saying about the sixteen hundred guys or self motivated, but I've also heard Utah. I know how self-motivated you work. But I also know what Utah how Utah about Danny green. So let me ask it this way aside from schematic advantage on Sunday. The great coaches, what do they do? For the players. What do even the self-motivated guys? What edged do the great coaches, do what made Dinnie better than some of the other coaches? You had had some of the great coaches. They can look at aspects of your game. That is not a strong suit in tell you things about yourself to try to grow your game. So we it's man I didn't see myself. And most of these guys think they're very very talented and have a lot of confidence. But when a coach can take you out of your narrow mindedness and say, you know, something I believe there's a bigger role for you James white and New England you're never going to be featured back sun. But one day is going to be some games where I'm gonna throw you ten passes. They're going some games you're going to score three tests. I'm going gonna be some games where you're going to be a hero in the Super Bowl. But you're never going to be featured guy and James has run with that role. Because Bella check is carved it out and helped him grow from that. But if you don't tell players what they're going to do and then follow up on their offensive line. They can't be physical guys are having guys not having great year. So it's hard. For the coast to build a lie to guys Dinnie. Green was a great coach. I have not seen that in Doug Peterson. Yes, he's won a Super Bowl. But man. He just happened to be on the right team at the right time, and they came up with the place. Now, he did call the Phillies special. I give them a lot of credit from that. But has he grown from that? There's just a lot of questions in his day to day decision. Making for spectators since two in my eyes got a bridge the gap between a gutsy coach that understand the numbers, which I think he is too the gap from there to a consistently advantageous head coach. I think there are the Phillies special what they do on fourth downs. I think Philly is a smart gutsy team. But that doesn't make that's not all that coaching is the other part of it is the stuff it seems to me. He's learning on the fly. Let's take a break coming up talks and basketball. Have we seen the last of Carmelo Anthony and the NBA that's next? Here. First things first we're talking canal, Anthony or Assam in NBA circles. Call it melodrama looks like are mellow Anthony short time with the rockets has already come to a close that.

Have we seen the last of Carmelo Anthony in the NBA? That's next. I we're talking Anthony or Assam in NBA circles. Call it melodrama looks like our mellow. Anthony's short time with the rockets has already come to a close that despite cici's emphatic rooting for the gentlemen, this season tried Saint forty to report. Yeah. But he was in it for a guy he quits block my corner. Also, how you say according to reports mel's representatives are looking at potential destinations for the sixteen year. Former star mellows averaging queer low thirteen point four points this season are Nick as mellow being unfairly blamed for the rockets slow start. Listen as wise man once said, everybody needs a fall guy at times and mellow is the fall guy right now for the rockets, but he's been a big part of the problem. He's not the only problem mellow could leave today, and the rockets still got major issues they are still not the defense. They were last. Year and not even close to the offense. They were last year. But Mel has been really bad. There's there's no denying this is now the second straight year Mela was supposed to be the third star on a team that had an unquestioned top two and he couldn't fill that role. And listen, I'm Syracuse graduate. I have always been Carmello Anthony supporter. And I think he's become a historically underrated player with all that said, I don't know what Mello's role is in the NBA at this point. It's not just about not accepting a role. It's about a drastically deteriorated skill set and a game that has not aged. Well, and by the way lot of guys don't age into their sixteenth season. Well, we LeBron's kind of change the way we look at it. But yeah, this is it got real bad real quick for mellow in the last three years, and this is where we're at right now. So I don't think he's to blame for everything with Houston. But he's certainly not part of the solution. I'm not gonna put Melo as far as blaming what's going on in Hugh. Houston. But what's happened in his career? He can only look to himself to blame. Because if you look very in his career, he never looked at changing. He never looked at changing his game and more importantly to hurting him. Now is he never looked at change in his body. And if you're going to be a professional athlete, and you're gonna try to maximize what you have. Yeah. He scored two basketball at a great level. You might be whatever lists Nick has him on. I don't care. But did he maximize his talent hail? No. He should have been better. He could have been in better shape. He could have been a defensive player. He chose not to. So. Yes, he did have a great career. This is not even about oh, Houston heated blame for Houston mellows to blame for his deterioration because Dwayne way when he's fading out..

"I can't. I don't believe that this. I believe if it gets into tournament, it'd have opportunity because you look at the personnel, but they have to make some changes. I think they're going to have to be a player before the trade deadline. They're going to have to go out there and get somebody that they can trust the hand, the ball to thirty times. You can't continue to keep putting it on winches back because people are playing the RPO's. We have film deep has more neighbors have broken it down, the understand what they're trying to get up to in. They're taking it away, knowing defense, they understand now that Pash Russia's and getting there like it was last year because people have seen what they're trying to do. You know, they had the corner sitting off at ten yards off the ball and Gaza are beating either running a slant and you jumped to slant slant go, there were beaten with double Moseman happening. All year happened last year. But then what happened is last year. Teams make those place, but now they're in. -ticipant knows plays, Aaron. Tits bait knows coverages, and you have to be more creative, and I'm not saying they're poorly conditioned football team, but there are team that's fading in the fourth quarter repeatedly thirteen. That leads the NFL in fourth quarter three and outs their team that we saw blow double digit, fourth quarter lead against Tennessee. They blew a seventeen point lead against Carolina. They, they're our team that can't finish games like they could use this phrase all the time. And especially with young players between jeer one in three, they might have some success in the NFL and yes, they're town, but they don't know why they had success and Dinnie green used to say it all the time. Be careful what you think, you know. All right. 'cause you don't know all there is to know about pro football, and he used to tell us that as a head coach, he's tells that as players and what I see Doug Peterson, see it all the time and people just don't want to say no one knows how to be a head coach in NFL as Bill Belichick. Look on his resume, asked him how that thing winning Cleveland Peterson look at him. He's making mistakes after mistakes after mistakes. And yes, you do learn on the job coach in Philadelphia is doing that right before is every it right now. These things happening in Jacksonville is, well, they're trying to figure it out. I think because they access to year before to roll out there and things on continue to go on air favor. But the football guys always change your fate. I stick around take a break coming up to Dallas Cowboys pay too much for a Mark Cooper. That's next on first. For. Overturns this week is Shawn Watson the Texans take on the Miami Dolphins.

Trent Brown, he got fourteen hour bus ride many play the next day. I didn't think he went to Clemson. I thought he went to the swagger episode. That was good. Low initially gonna be watching this close here with Bart Scott, and how about them Cowboys? Jerry Jones wanted to receiver for Dak Prescott. Jerry Jones went out and God receiver for Jack Prescott Cowboys traded a first round pick to acquire Amari Cooper from the raiders. Now, Cooper who made the Pro Bowl is I two season the NFL hasn't he'd struggled in the year and a half cents, but instantly could become the number one option in a limited Dallas receiver group. All right, Bart, what impact will have on this Cowboys? Offense should be able to help them in the red zone. I think right now thirty in the red zone..

"I know Mike Tomlin Noam fairly well. No, some of the other system coaches there, no, a lot of the players that play there and this is not foreign to me, especially being a wide receiver. There were a lot of times on Monday after the game depend on how the team did sometimes even when we did well, if people could get some type of shot myself, Randy moss, I remember one time on the Monday night game against the giants. Randy scored three touchdowns in the first half, and I was very demonstrative after the third touchdown with him on the sideline in people's like man, Chris card is jealous. Randy. They a circus atmosphere. Their dentist green has no control, but I was actually just telling Randy moss when you are at your best, this is who you are, and this is what you should be doing. Now how I conveyed that to him. I told you. That he was Robin sports fans everyday. He doesn't play his best or give the best effort. You Robin sports fans. I was very Demange and I was in his face. People had no clue what I was saying. They thought I was getting because Randy on the third touchdown, he got called for unsportsmanlike conduct 'cause he was so wide open that he backpedaled into the end zone last or that the last five yards. But everyone came into the locker room. Dinnie green don't have no control of this team, Chris card, and Randy moss. They're going at each other. But a lot of times we as fans have no clue what people are talking about. We have no clue what NFL sideline is like on a Sunday and when you're losing because you're paid to win football games. There are a lot of people very, very upset, so I will not agree with the circus type atmosphere. I will agree with Coachman Jeannie and I have talked about a lot of time. They do have a different set of rules. Now this set of rules allows them to at least win eight games every year. So that's why you know it's not a circus and Mike, Tom. Tomlin has one double digits, a whole bunch in his career. So I know what's going on in Pittsburgh. It's not the same locker room is everyone? Are they tight enough to go to win a championship? Yes. In football, you have situations like this. You got a lot of different people. You have a lot of different cliques, but it's easy because if you win winning football cures, a lot of different things. I think Mike Tomlin is still one of the best coaches that we have into think that he has a chaotic organization, which is the Pittsburgh Steelers because of Tomlin didn't have the support. The Steelers if he was somewhere else, man, they'd be trying to get rid of Tomlin if he was in Tampa Bay or something, they'd be like, it's chaotic organisation. Let's get rid of them. But because of Pittsburgh overall stability, I believe that the l. building that's not the coach. That's the general manager and ownership. They decided not to sign him Mike Tomlin supposed to do well that that is the part of this that I feel like sports fans and commentators absolutely Levi. Out which I understand the Steelers have a history, fifty plus years being a well run organization, and they have certain rules that they have always kept to one of them is they do not include guaranteed money after one year for players that aren't quarterbacks. That's why ABC big deal. He got only at nineteen million dollars guaranteed. That's why the offered bell for your sixty million only had fifteen million dollars guaranteed. That's fine to be your flossy. But.

"If we were saying bakers, do this baker's going to do that might entire Brown prognostic gift in involves Baker, not playing on titan bolts tyrod Taylor if your plan works right? He doesn't play this exactly what if they are a six win team, if I'm right that they could be close to eight wins. Then tyrod is the quarterback throughout the season maybe week sixteen seventeen. It's a different story. But that's the other reason why that tonight's games. Interesting bakers played really well, but the reason the Browns have been able to publicly and privately stick to the script is because tyrod is yet to make a mistake. This preseason. They haven't asked to do a lot, but he's seventy five percent completions. A one thirty four rating hasn't thrown a pick. Hasn't. Fumbled the football. We know the fan base is probably thinking, give us Baker, we know that they're organizationally they're promoting Baker social media wise. You mentioned the not just the underwear modeling that organization. It didn't do that, but that John Dorsey parody video, the organization put that out. They want him to be the and he is the face and he will be any. But a if tyrod plays poorly in this game, which will be as last preseason game that he will still be the starter, but that could quickly change the momentum of the situation and the narrative surrounding the quarterback situation in Cleveland. And those are some of the reasons why to gate. Tonight's game is very important for the Cleveland Browns. Philadelphia didn't play well last week doing so we know they will put more emphasis because week number four, they will sit most of the stars. I remember when Dinnie green took over Minnesota Vikings, he let us know not only his pre can't meetings, but we went to the preseason. He said, I'm getting ready to change the culture around here. Now, Minnesota. It wasn't bad. Cleveland. He said the preseason games are important, and we're going to send some messages and man. We ran up the score. I think we broke the preseason record. We ran up the score on a bunch of people. What they're doing in Cleveland makes these preseason games important. So you can create a culture that they know how to win games compared to it away games, which we saw them at least five of them last season. Let's take a back coming up on the other side. Are the Cowboys making big mistake when it comes to Dak Zeke, what we're talking about..

"That would have been the last piece from you played you played college has, and then you got undrafted with the Rams and you almost made it and the whole thing. What was your game? Like what running back remote I was trying to be, you know, I didn't. I couldn't break away, but I can. I can get three hours and clouded does. I could make a make a defendant amiss in the hole. So I was shifty. I kind of like the love, the love Bill used to love. Very Sanders. Growing up. Ricky Watters was was a loved him to his running style too. But also guys, like Bam Morris? Yeah. When they try means used to love guys catch the ball, and I was able to do that. I didn't do it a lot in college though, but I developed it like just practice every week, like being able to spread out there, go out there and and play a little slot as well. I wish how to develop those skills a little like a little sooner they'll before hit the NFL. I mean, I didn't even know how to really watch film yapper until I got to the league because Morehouse college and you gotta bring referees, you gotta bring you on tape glove, go post. So you had to like be resourceful. To me. But like NFL like our remember Steven Jackson was like, I wanted to get some more gloves. I was like, hey, but I got one. I got one glove all season in practice and games the same gloves. Like just get you knew paramount. Really. I can do that. You know, because I'm coming from two black college was that we don't have the resources. So you know that meaning that I just I came into a whole other world in and grew as a artists as an athlete, a little too late. I think I'm surprised bowel. Check that in. Bring you in. I wanna minute. He loves those smart, five, nine, nine back. Thank you. Kevin. Shame. To he was deep three, Danny Woodhead. Yeah, I was. I was big fan of his. He. He always has he tape all. Yes. We just took Sony Michelle from Georgia in the first round, like top of the second last year who's also that one is just can do it all? Yeah, he likes to you kept the gym for like four years. I did my best. I played in Germany, Germany, Duesseldorf, Ryan fire and play for delayed great. Dinnie green, you're, you're not a football league, which was amazing experience. He treated us like man. In fact, my first start in that league, I got player of the week was a buck twenty-five and a touchdown. My first start, so showed me and showed others that with the right opportunity. I, I was good enough and that that's all I need is like my Rudy moment if you will, because that was the only time I started, and and that was the most significant amount of planes. And we won the game two and I can just stand on that. I did that with Dennis Green has the coast. Yeah, forever had any trust me after that too. He talked to me more stuff like that. You know what was the blackout football scene like? So I never seen it's ever really been captured in like a documentary or that let me captured. I would love to. I would love to explore that documentary about the black college football experience, but the best way to describe it for the general mass population out there is everybody who witnessed the beyond say concert at Coachella. Yeah, that's the experience like exactly what is like the halftime show. People come for the halftime show. Not necessarily the game. So like coming for the ban which is fine. It's very live and interactive sort of environment. People are dancing and but the not really paying attention to the game the chain. If the other team scores, they chain of we score. But it's okay because we're all together. We didn't really win a lot of games either. So who's your aval Clark university? Right across the street? Yeah. Yeah. So we could beat them who is the best one who's the best at a they usually, they usually have pipeline of of NFL athletes, Albany state, whatever. They get all these d- transfers just go go for semester..

"And my hall of fame speech he was the most influential coach i've ever had in my life if you know the reason why because he told me to things that no one else would tell me he made me go places that i would never go psychologically physically he made me do things that i didn't think i was capable of doing and that's what you want from a football coach when you coach in tennis golf batman you can have some other type of coach it can be warm and fuzzy but bill bell check if i go back and play football that do right there he can coach me the no the reason why because he's going to teach me the game he's gonna give me an advantage when i go onto the field and also he going to police the rest of the team all i got to do my job show up to work and do my job and i'm gonna get a chance to win me a championship and for me that's very important i can't question how important it is for you how important it is for you nick but it's important for me for god who spent his life playing pro football that i would have a chance to win and bill belichick would give me that chance what i like everything he did no give me the chance to win and i know it would maximize mitalent it would get the best out of me and at the end of the day that's really important to absolutely see you said it right there coaching and tom coughlin always used to address the team this way before he gave us a criticism he would say coaching making men do what they don't wanna do so they can become what they wanna become and it takes a little bit of a fire breather to be able to get that message across and set the agenda for the team but they're also comes a point where that head coach then has to empower the leaders on that team and they have to take ownership of it and i guess that's a fine line and you're seeing right now we're bill belichick and tom brady aren't necessarily on the same page and terms of bill belichick trusting tom and the rest of the leaders on that team well that's something because this is the first time we're talking about him not trusting bill belichick or not tom brady or not wanting to empower the leaders on his team because that's never something we've really discussed in the past maybe it has randy randy moss left new england tom brady was not happy did he go and have success afterwards absolutely there have been other moves at the players were not happy about lawyer milloy him richard seymour when they traded him last year chandler jones gave up on him sent him off the air so this is not new visit the first time we're talking about it but what about the friction between radium bella check do you think that's new here's the thing i think it's it's becoming a thing because it's been so long with those two at the helmets eighteen years and so at some point you have to trust me that i know exactly what you want and i'm going to do everything that it takes to put our team and the best position to be successful and i think that's where the rift comes into play not to mention everything that happened with jimmy garoppolo saga and them forcing that trade but making bill belichick go to robert kraft said okay we gotta deal this guy well and i've heard you talk about chris that there became a point in your career where the coaches couldn't really teach you that much anymore no i'm correct there was a game point in your career where it was more of a collaborative effort and i know how highly you regard and how highly you speak of the late dinnie green because he seemed to embrace that collaborative effort yes and.
