"Strikes out. looking yankee. Third base coach. Phil nevin was irate. Got thrown out either way. We go to extras tied at four top. Ten at fluey sesa during the pitching and a three to count. That's called the ball. And gary sanchez can't believe it. The yankees are frustrated. And then they would like this. Even last two onto that zander bogart's a basic both run score and the red sox winning six four completing the sweep again. It's the first time. The red sox walk into yankee stadium and leave with a sweep in a decade prior to this series. Boston lost eleven straight away games against the bombers. Moreover the red sox have now won five straight extra inning games at yankee stadium. We'll talk more about that later. Meanwhile now let's talk about this. Tomorrow is a significant day.

Who's Your NFL MVP?
"We're back on. Get up with a little game of either or dominic foxworth aaron rodgers or patrick. Mahomes got vp. I think after. Patrick mahomes week last week you have to give it to aaron rodgers taking the lead. He's not without weapons like a lot if you were to say. They have good running backs and their offensive line protects them quite well and obviously davante adams outstanding. But i do think that you take him off at team and they are very very different team and we already know what The chiefs look like without patrick mahomes. They're still very good if you think back to When they had more playing last year or when they had alex smith star quarterback. It's a lot of talented team. I think roger's values higher
Super Bowl LIV Preview
"Today ahead of Super Bowl. Fifty four we break down just what to expect when the Chiesa. He's the niners square off on Sunday. I mean at times it's Thursday January thirtieth this espn daily presented by Dell small business. We are on radio row right now. ESPN daily is in the back There are radio stations across America. ESPN shows everyone is at their booths. Interviewing players analysts celebrities stars. And we've got one here with us. Dominic foxworth radio row is madness. It always ban is but it's like three hundred people gets bigger and his crazier every year. Well Luke speaking of madness this game people having trouble picking the winner I think because it truly feels like the two best teams made it to the Super Bowl. I feel like I'm just GONNA. It was Patrick Mahomes. Because it's not GonNa be fun rooting against him. We'll be more fun rooting for him than against it. Let's start by talking about patching mahomes chiefs offense versus the San Francisco Forty Forty niners defense. Which is sort of the strength on strength matchup in this game? I think history would favor San Francisco because the recent super bowls elite defenses. Have come out on top. The two thousand fifteen Denver Broncos the two thousand thirteen Seattle seahawks. We don't need to talk about what happened near later. The two thousand eight steelers ninety six packers list goes on typically offense loses according to our friends at stats and Info so the niners are the sevens team in the last fifteen years to make it to the super bowl with fifty five or more sex the other six teams all won dominique. We've seen how disruptive active this pass rushes the secondary ranks near the top of the League in stopping deep passing as the linebackers fast they can move laterally. Which is the chiefs specialty with their sweeps and screens? And all that said tell me how the chiefs offense can still beat them. I mean I have never seen the chiefs. Offense actually be stopped in any legitimate way especially with a healthy Patrick mahomes and he is healthy. And that's the difference is when we've seen great defenses. Losing the Super Bowl. It's been all time great quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers one of the people who did I did not think Patrick Mahomes is obviously in that category. As far as this town is concerned. If you were the niners defense how would you defend Patrick Mahomes this explosive chiefs passing attack. So I think you have to mix it up. That's the best thing you can do. And you also have to understand that you're not gonNA stop them. They're GONNA make plays they're going to score points. But you need to try not to give a big play. Touchdown don't stress about them getting to the red zone but play well in a red zone which the forty niners haven't been doing which is scary. It's interesting right. Yeah the the niners defense ranks. Thanks near the top in most statistical categories this year. But you're right. They have been less. Efficient are actually been below average in the red zone. They've struggled to stop the run there. which cheese haven't really been running the ball lately? They've also struggled this season against mobile quarterbacks now that requires an enormous caveat which which is that D. Ford niners pass rusher at Kwon Alexander. LINEBACKER missed a lot of games during the regular season but you look performances against Cuyler Murray Lamar Jackson Russell Wilson. You saw those were the games in which they struggled a little bit more for what we've seen from Patrick Mahomes in this postseason is is an insane ability to take off the football as the leading rusher for his team and the playoffs so far and I think that he's always been comfortable with it now that his knee is gone a little bit unhealthier. He's more apt to take off. But I think that's less scary the him getting outside of the pocket throwing like I'd almost rather him try to run it for twenty yards. Because what happens win. He buys time against the forty niners. Specifically they're not traditionally man coverage team but everything turns the main when the quarterback starts to scramble like. That's your your scramble scramble roles as a defensive back or linebackers find closest guy and stick to them everything tires demand at that point in there they just frankly. The forty niners don't have the secondary speed speed in secondary and to be fair to them. No one has a speed and a secretary to run with McColl Hartman and tyreek hill specially with the arm. That Patrick Mahomes has the the chiefs are the best st passing team in the NFL or close to it. The San Francisco Forty niners are the best at defending the NFL or close to it. Something has to give live. How do you even begin to defend all of those weapons? especially if you're the forty niners you play a pretty simple cover. Three quarters mixed in there. Do you change it up. What do you do with Rick Chairman? You have to change it up. You can't survive and covered three. Andy Reid loves four verticals and with that speed and in Patrick mahomes arm strength and accuracy. He will eat you alive in the same with four verts. Would it really comes down to is pressure which is why I think that blitzing is a smart move. You WanNa make them get rid of the ball quickly and tackle but you're not gonNa do it every single time and if you give him one opportunity unity he can make you pay so you need to get the Turner was when you get those opportunities. I think they should be more aggressive than they've been and try to force them to get rid of the ball and make tackles. Yeah if there's been a weakness in this defense dominique. It's been the other side of the field for Richard Sherman originally weatherspoon more recently. They've been playing a manual. You'll Moseley a corner. He's been better but undeniably. That's an area of the field. I think the chiefs would like to target so much of the performance of the San Francisco Secondary. It depends on the pass rush getting home and you know as a former DB pass rushes the secondary's best friend a lot of the great statistics we've seen from the secondary can dairy are the product of this pass. Rush being so explosive a pass rush that turns into a murderer's row. Win The big four Defoe Award. DEFOREST Buckner Eric Armstead and it boasts are all on the field when those four players are playing their sack ratio. The percentage of drawbacks drawbacks in which they get to the quarterback jumps from six percent to twenty three percent twenty three percent of the time. They're taking the quarterback down So Eh my question to you is they've been able to get a lot of pressure by just rushing four. Do you think that they'll have success against a chief offensive line. That's probably one of the better offensive lines they faced aced. No now. It's just for. I don't think they can be able to stop him. The more I think about it in a way that you framed that I think made it very clear my mind is I think they're going to have to flush them out. You got to get him to run with the football or get them uncomfortable to get rid of the football. Because I do think that the chiefs offense line is good enough that they're not just going to get massacred. And then you put on top of it. The chiefs offense is not one that killed by a fact like most offenses. If you second now it's second and fifteen second eighteen it's over it's third and twelve. It's over over. It's not true for the chiefs offense so they can get pressured they could get a sack. Can Patrick Mahomes can make a play in overcome that so I think that the the worst thing they could possibly do is believe leave. Their Front for is going to be enough to stop this chiefs offense so far this postseason what we've seen from Patrick. Mahomes is a record performance. I quarterback in NFL history to throw for two fifty at rush for fifty consecutive games in a postseason. Do you think he keeps it up. And that's a difficult question because yes you can think he'll play well but we're talking about playing at historic level. I think he does keep it up and I think I've said this a lot in to the point where people make fun of me is that he's never had a bad game and that's one of the most mind blowing. I guess you can call it that you see from a guy who's who's just been starting for two years played a lot of games and there's never had a bad one like mediocre is the worst as you get out of them in in the big games. He's been fantastic gets thirteen touchdowns. Yeah no interceptions in his playoff career. And I know it's been said Ad Nauseam nor is why they are in Super Bowl last year because of off someone lining up offsides so like I've yet to see him shrivel into big moment he only seems to get bigger and until I see him Have a tough outing going to lean in favor

"Plus three by the way, these live at our show with this two guys on ESPN radio. So down south here. We have another version of the port studio, where ESPN people are stacked on top of each other. And I just saw Chris Cody walked by a Dominic Foxworth and Dominic Foxworth simply spat at him spoken like someone who has never been good at anything. What did you say that got the response from Dominique Foxworth that you've never been good at anything what we were talking about the holiness canter Zion, Julius Randle thing. What thing is that for the audience that doesn't know what that thing Kanter was on the heard. And he compared I on Williamson saying that he's Julius Randle with hops and Julius Randle came back at and his canter saying, listen, bro, got forty five on you last time. So Julius was offended by this. Comparison. And I my thought was if I'm Julius Randle. He just put me in the same sentence. Zion Williamson, I'm Julius Randle, so I'm happy. I think my name's in the news now. I'm just I would be I would be not offended by that. You forgot your sign off. I'm Chris, Cody ESPN. How about you dots how, so he, he says here because that's the correct quote? I feel like he's Julius Randle with hops and Dominic Foxworth saying that Julius Randle shouldn't be offended by that. But you're saying that Julius Randle is what, what are you saying? If you're saying, he's Julius Randle with hops. You're saying that Julius Randle could be Williamson if he could just jump a little bit higher. I mean, of course, he should be salted by that. Why shouldn't Julius Randle, be insulted? He's a he's a pedestrian NBA player, who has been, you know, I won't call him a bust, but he's been what Amina Hassen was talking about, when you draft in the first round, you want to choose between a guy who's got an enormous upside. And sometimes you're going to choose the Taj Gibson, you're gonna choose somebody who's a serviceable player who can Julius Randle can play for ten years in the league and give you decent minutes. But if Zion Williamson becomes Julius Randle with ops, he's going to fail. That's something I haven't thought of you're right. What if he is just Julius? Randle, jump a little bit higher as I Williams, it will not have a good career, but Julius Randle, Dan port of the job. Qualifications to be an NBA player is to jump and what eat is all people, eat, as cantor say, Julius Randle cannot jump. It's on Williamson. With hops is such a back. It it's not even back yet. It just a straight insult chilies. Randall, it is. It is funny to think about the only difference between me and John is says. That's what I'm saying. So he should be. Yes. Thank you. I appreciate it. But, but that is an insult to say that as an insult to say, Julius Randle doesn't have. I mean it's an NBA player and he's not exactly boogie cousins. Zach Randolph like he had a bad injury. There is there is a large Gulf in their athleticism. It's up the biggest insult in the world zion's, the one is should be offended. What album? Naba. Maybe maybe listen. Maybe the message is right, but poor messenger. Can we agree on that eat has gathered terrible messenger on? Is he though because he and his canter score on anybody because he can hop nobody's cannot course you can score on. Well, maybe not anybody. He can't score on Rudy compare. But wait a minute. He's net negative. Okay. Wait a minute..

They made is the Braga m- circumstance, and they got off to a slow start and Yanni's minister figure on average thirty against this team. You knew he was going to do. Well, that said I do think there's a lot to be said for kyri and what he stepped up as or didn't as a leader. When he made that comment about not taking enough shots. It's me as him saying nobody else is doing good enough. That's not what you need in Boston with this. I want to go back to the first series. And we had a question about the Celtics for real. And I said they're going to have to prove it to me. And they never did prove it to me. And you got plenty of blame to share all around the coach. Yes. Of course, he admitted that he did a terrible job cowry. He wanted his own team. You got it. You'd better go to a team where you the number two guy again because you're not the leader. I think you you go down Tatum. Who else do you want to talk about? He was all of the Tony. They weren't any good is tears. They showed it to us throughout the regular season. We've seen kyri give different excuses. We've seen guys not really fall into roles we've seen Brad. Stevens have trouble bringing that locker room together or changing things up. Really? I think it's everybody's fault. It's the importance of the regular season. We saw all along it show. It's also their fault. They're playing Milwaukee. Who's a really good juggernaut right now in the eastern time a four week last word and have been a four seat. Yeah.

"Is yet another reason that makes some people question the very existence of the NCWA. Here's the assessment of the entrepreneur Mark Cuban who owns the NBA is Dallas Mavericks. I think it's worthless. If you could blow it up entirely, what would you do would you have football attached to college at all? I don't mind having attached to college, but I would make an independent entity. So it would operate independently. Let him go get a job. Let them practice as much as they need to. If I wanted to create a band, I can pay them, and they can stay in school. They can practice together as much as they want. The that's the hypocrisy. If you want to be a professional athlete, you can't practice your craft as much as you would like there's limits to coaching and playing with your teammates, there's limits on jobs, you can take there's so many different things that are bound in stone that it just doesn't make sense for years. There's been talk about reforming the NC double A. But it hasn't changed much the commission on college basketball chaired by former secretary state Condoleeza Rice is advocating some reforms that can be seen as pro athlete. But she also said this. Our focus has been destroying th-then, the collegiate model not to move toward one that brings aspects of professionalism into the game, which might make more sense. If some aspects of college sports weren't already at the professional level lake coaching salaries and TV audiences and the expectations of the top tier athletes. So how likely is a substantial change Dominic Foxworth is not optimistic. Those guys who are on the doorsteps of having professional careers. It's not really in their best interest to to stop this now, and the people who are benefiting most from it who are not on the field like there's really no benefit to the coaches because coaches salaries are inflated because they have extra money because they are not sending it to the players and the rest of the teams who are funded by money generated by football and basketball. There's no incentive there. There's just the athlete. Elites who don't have much power..

"One of the signs of me getting older is that I defend the athlete less than Dominic Foxworth, for example, when I say when we're talking transactions and LeBron James the thought is being thrown out there of him going to the warriors as well as it was last year. I'm like, okay. That's enough thinks like, Nope. Keep it coming. Let everyone get their money. Let everyone get their winning. He is even more pro player than I am. So I wanna talk about this Antonio Brown stuff with them. But the first thing I wanted to ask you Dominique can thank you for being on with us. If someone who was negotia. She hated all of this stuff. Why does your sport have a salary cap? And should it have a salary cap? So was only. No, it shouldn't have our cat. But the salaries have exists. I it's a clear violation of anti trust law. Why it exists because the players have been union, which advocated for several times certified decertified and again operating as an association all boring legal mumbo jumbo, but the reason why that they're allowed to have of salary gap while they're allowed to have drafts. And and franchise tags and all the frankly, un-american restrictions that would allowance are because the union this and that allows them to operate three of the Sherman act and violate and why would the players go for that Dominique y and are most popular sport with billionaires making this much money. Why would they ever go for that? Well, I think because leverage is the power a symmetry. It's set the players. So you break it down on a pure numbers standpoint. If you take one percent of you're fighting over one percent of total revenue and all the revenue in the sport one percent of that revenue. Probably breaks down to tens of thousands of dollars per player, which for the owners breaks down to about three million per owner. And it's not just for a year that's three million into perpetuity because they own the teams into perpetuity and then put on top of it. The players the league is disproportionately disproportionately young for the players haven't quite made the money yet, not any not anywhere close with the owners hand. So the owners have the wherewithal to the financial with all of which stand along work stoppage lock our strike or anything like that in a way that the players don't and on top of it. They stand at getting more so their motivation, but the Karen in the sick are both larger, but the owners than it is for the players as long as they operate under the contract where union do you imagine Dominique there's any length of time the players could sit with the owners would finally cave on this. Or is there? No time. I'm I think that there is a length of time. I just think that. It not logical for the players to do that. Because like I mentioned with only couple thousand dollars for the players and mobile mostly players. I'm going to see it. It's probably all gonna go to quarterback that the next grade is Syria. What what's going to happen? But the I think if the owners believe that the players were willing to blow up a whole season, I think they would definitely came under so unlikely that the players will be willing to do that. Because like I mentioned most of them having gotten to that big payday yet. They can't if they miss it year of their career that is like ten years compared to anyone else's career because careers, and so sure they can't afford to lose that money. One one year of missed with all his millions of dollars per player. You could see them all over the place the undefeated get up highly questionable. Dominic Foxworth with us. He knows all about this contract stuff. He helped negotiate them in basketball and football. Dominique isn't the rationale for the salary cap that fundamentally promotes parody. I it's it's a false rationale..

"Good conversation with Charley Casserly, a respect him for coming on with us after that story sort of blew up. And at one point I thought he might hang up on me. You left me the tough questions. I appreciate that. Well, you have things like journalists integrity. Right. I'm just a moron. So I just sit back and say, hey, Cuyler. How how would you like I? But I do have to say all kidding aside. Charlie coming on. And I think it's important. We had to ask the race question. Because frankly, it's minute conversation on every show on every network everywhere. You look ever since this news broke. And I think it would be it'd be blind us to not at least to address it with Charlie. So I give them a lot of credit for for hanging in with us and not backing away from it and being willing to have the conversation. That's not easy to do. Yeah. I agree. And listen, we'll Cain. Dominic Foxworth on the show earlier today, and they were kind of talking about it back and forth. And I think listen it can be. Frustrating for people who don't see race issues. Very commonly to hear about them. And think that they're brought up too often. Now, I think as is the case with a lot of issues whether it's the metoo movement or race or anything else. A lot of stuff was happening that people kept quiet about or didn't feel like they had a voice on. So it's not people looking to insert it all the time where it doesn't fit. It's the fact that it fits in a lot of places, and we used to ignore it. And so I think having an open conversation about whether or not some of the things willing around Kyle Murray might have to do with race is better than simply trying to you know, tamp it down and not discuss it because we've seen this in the past. I mentioned it yesterday, you know, Lamar Jackson. There have been white players who have been told to play a different position..

"Scouting combine. And how they're doing it all wrong with an emphasis on why? There should be a scouting. Combine for coaches where did the concept even come from for? You have always been interested in leadership and after go into business school like I got a good idea or learn how people would think of leaders and other organizations and spent most. My life in football. It was like the first time that I was like, oh, well, then maybe there are different ways to lead people than just kind of the the antiquated militaristic style that that we use in so many levels of football. And so that just got me thinking, how did they go about hiring head coaches, and and where are the head coaches trained as I kind of outlined in the piece the most the coaches come from coordinators and being a coordinator entirely, different coaches, far as with jobs required. So there's really no way in the same way that the combine is not great way to measure a player's ability. Not nearly as good as watching him play football because their job is to play football being can somewhat be coordinator is no way to measure how good head coach. They are. So I was just kind of brainstorming on how a combine might look that could potentially help the coaches are helped the teams be able to suss out with coaches have the proper skills and abilities to lead a franchise. We're talking to Dominique Foxworth. On the shell Pennzoil performance line. And go read the piece because you do lay out some very specific. And might I add realistic things that could happen in a coaching. Combine that would be an indicator for you as a player when you were looking at guys that took that step into head coaching. What do you think was the most difficult piece for the transition for them to make? Yeah, I think it is they need to stop doing their own show. I think that's the hardest thing for them. Do is so many coaches come from being off the coordinators or four Nader's and they want to buckle down and double down on doing that stuff. But they haven't often in the community to do that the one thing that they can do and probably the most important thing for the franchise. And the thing that no one else can really do other than head coach is to set the culture. And I think that it's a seemed like an amorphous term to most people, but it actually is about the processes that are expected by your organization to kind of carry out the functions better needed and the head coach and set that set those expectations and incentives, and that's no one else can really do that not the quarterback not the team. Captain not the defense of coordinator. So they it goes needs to do that or find people to to help perpetuate those things. So I think they need to focus on that. And not so much focus on the Xs owes in the way that they may have done when they were interesting to me dominate because so much conversation happens around trying to find the next great young mind versus hiring a retread coach. But when I listened to you talk about the difficulties of becoming a head coach, and understanding what your responsibilities are does it actually bear to a conversation that maybe a retread hope coat coach is a better higher. Yeah. I think that Rica. I don't hate on the idea of retread coaches. I think that they learn a lot in that. I go round and some of them also don't actually learn anything. 'cause I think ego this oh big in this industry for players and coaches than everyone that often when things go wrong, we look around can't be our fault. So that's true. Some head coach is also. So I think kind of a self aware retry is a good coach. But there are plenty of coaches who will come out of. A situation and say we didn't succeed. 'cause when they're found the quarterback that we needed or because my coordinator stale because that come out and say we didn't succeed because I held and this way, I think are the more impressive coaches, and the type of retry is that you should look it. We're talking to here's PIN NFL analyst Dominic Foxworth on the shell Pennzoil performance line. Spain fits Jason Fitz solo tonight Ego's the word there that I want to Joe back to because two to form this combine which makes so much sense..

"I don't know. What do you think? So I think the their obvious teams like Jacksonville is the most obvious team that's been in desperate need of a quarterback for quite some time. I think that whoever gets an Nick foles is going to be disappointed. I think that Nick foles is of is going to be a very highly coveted free agent or trade opportunity. So he'll go he'll have his choice of all the teams. Right. And he's the number one guy like if teams not drafting quarterback, I guess it's just about teams who are in rebuild mode and teams who think they are quarterback away. All the things I think their quarterback away. Nick foles is number one choice. Right. And that would be accent. Oh, yeah. 'cause like you look at the guys that quarterbacks giants. I think they're going to draft. They're pretty much the highest. They've gotta high-traffic eighteen that really needs to quarterback. They're kind of pulled position Washington doesn't have the money. I think Bridgewater to Washington makes sense to me. Yet. Miami might move on. We talked about tannehill. I could see that being a possibility, but Jacksonville just seems like the most likely outcome two. Okay. So what was your favorite thing about Atlanta? My favorite thing about Atlanta was that it was the highest concentration of Dominic Foxworth fans that I've ever had in my life. So my my demo my demographic. And I think is from going on shows like I take that. I think I take might have the highest percentage of like black viewership of any TV show. It's like almost fifty percent when the the population in the country is only like eleven, but like, I I've always laughed for the last like two years. I've laugh with my wife that everywhere I go only time, I get noticed is like forty five to fifty year old black man who point at me and say ESPN ESPN young blood you right, and like one out of three of them. Like, no my name. We'll call me Dominique, but Rosa just call me ESPN. So it was incredibly fun and Atlanta every four steps I think it was. I like five times a day, which is a lot for me. Whereas somebody's I'm old black man was like, you're young blood, and it just became a running joke, and is very happy. And I was very happy..

But I heard someone scream domini Duckworth. I wanted to say, yeah. My interactions with fans are very different from yours. So just all by the way question three, our friend friends show. Andrew Hawkins ause reported. They're making a movie about his life. So my question for you is who would play you in the movie about your life in the movie about my life, hold. I don't know that much about Andrew Hawkins is. I need to read up on. Andrew Hawkins story. Yeah. Yeah. You gotta read up on. It deserves the movie. Pretty it's firing. Yeah. Okay. I'll read about it. I certainly will. I mean me I'll be in the movie my acting skills are so Perv and get find anyone who can who can capture. My good looks like there is an actor out there. It would it would be weird to like try to make someone look as handsome as me, Jamie, FOX. That since you wanna question what that didn't make the playoffs gets in next year. All right. Let's see who didn't make the play. The eagles could get in the Jags are good team. Who else the charges? They get in. Niners. Yes bags and although there. Nah. I'm I'm I like the Niners. I'm gonna go Niners. Yeah. I ran into my man. John Lynch down there. He's didn't get an all the fame but he's excited about next season. And I think that that division. I guess I think the Rams are going to take a step back. I guess the the the Seahawks are pretty good. They're gonna get better because this was supposed to be a down year for them. So that division could be tough. But I mean, I don't believe in the Steelers. Oh, yeah. The vikings. I like the Vikings, but you'll have a healthy Aaron Rodgers and a tough Chicago team. I feel like the forty Niners is the is the out on Olympics. I'm gonna go with that one the ones what about you? I what the Packers. I think they're going to be. New coach and stuff. Yeah. Well cheating. Dude, I want. All right. Final question as always from Lenny..
"dominic foxworth" Discussed on Freakonomics
"Hey there. I'm Steven dubner in this is a freakonomics radio. Extra. Our full interview with Dominic Foxworth who appeared in bits and pieces in our hidden inside of sports series. I've known Foxworth for a while. Now, he's one of the most thoughtful athletes I've ever encountered. But this conversation surpassed, my Artie, high expectations not just for his thoughtfulness, but his willingness to wrestle with contradiction and his hardcore candor as you'll hear in this episode Foxworth wasn't NFL player for several years then served as president of the NFL players union. And after getting an MBA from Harvard was the CEO of the NBA players. It turns out he didn't like that job too much. You'll hear why as our conversation begins Foxworth is talking about his belief that the professional sports players unions should be dissolved. I asked why. Yeah, I think that where we are. With with professional athletes, and how big a business it's gotten in how well they are compensated. I think is is a product of sacrifices made by players coming up and many players loss long seasons were black bought out of the league and and had their careers really torn apart by the their ambitions of free agency and pensions and all those things and they never really got to fully reap the benefits from that. And I think back in those days, the the unions the player unions were a lot like when we think of as traditional labor unions. But I think we've gotten to a point now where it's not like that. And with the the length of a player's career and how much money they could stand to make in a season. It's really not in their best interests like mathematically logically. If you go through the numbers, it's not in their best interest to actually withstand a lockout or to initiate a. Strike. They will not make that money back. Like, it's just physically impossible. The reason why they would do it is to. Further the cause I guess for players and a future. But since you can't kind of hand your position down to your son or daughter, then it really doesn't seem to make sense. So for me, I can use me as an example. I sacrifice from the time. I was I don't know. Probably in high school is when I started to forgo other opportunities or other decisions to focus more on football than I'm in college. And I wanted to be a computer a, computer graphics and computer science and high school, and then in college I wanted to be a computer science major at university of Maryland, and Mike and Mike advisor was like though that that costlo is going to make it very difficult for you to make a top practices their labs, and blah, blah, blah, blah. So I was like no not gonna do that during the summers when there's so in. So instead, you did was it American standard American studies, which I end journalism, right and journalism, which is shows how easy what I do is that you could do it and another major while playing ball. But anyway, go ahead. I I enjoyed those. And it was it was good. But it wasn't what I wanted to do. And then the summers when when people were getting internships, or whatever I was. Working out and getting ready for football. And I say all that to say once I got to the league, then I got drafted and I was in the third round. So that's it's money. It's good money. But it's not life changing money. It doesn't. And I it doesn't make up for all the things that you've given up through the course of your life. And then I come up on free agency. And that's when I got a pretty nice deal. I can't. Yeah. I can't imagine. If somebody was like, no, you gotta sit out right now. And then when you think about it, it's it's competition, obviously because you are competing in this lockout or or strike with the owners. Whereas it does make sense for them to withstand a lockout because they own their teams into perpetuity. So if they if they win a lockout for a tenth of percentage point or even a whole percentage point of revenue split that is something that will maybe three million dollars a franchise for this season. And it'll go up as things grow, and it goes on and on and on. So if you are in the kind of..

"You know as much as most of them are would not prefer this. I just think you know, that the patriots may be the Rams may be a better team talent lies defensively in certain areas. I just and and give them what the patriots patriots doing defense lately, the Ghaffur. She's I talked about before he's not been nearly as efficient in the second half of the season under pressure or was it off. So the explosive plays may not be there. I think in the end, you know, Joe Goth running out of oxygen. That's another story for you on Monday morning. I think the patriots are set up to win this against this particular opponent. Yeah, I agree with you. I think there's just the opportunities in the sought for the patriots where the ramps are significantly worse. Even even with two leaving the lineup. They're they're basically average every spot except for the slot where their yard of the half worse than league average in terms of guards per tamped. I think the the running game you mentioned on the opportunities. They have to take advantage of. The Rams defense that ranked twenty eighth rush defense deviates earning the regular season. And then like, you said golf, I mean there's going to be opportunities for Goffin. We see a guy who can certainly make plays. I mean that throw against thirty. Branding coach in the first half in the saints. Game was incredible perfect throw. But he also can be inconsistent like, whoa. Kind of turn my head around with him. But this is the different true. Very true. And I think there's you know, I think he may get five opportunities of four opportunities to hate a pass for big plan. I don't I don't feel confident you know, that he's gonna hit all four of them in the way that I think I would be with other quarterback. So wouldn't be shocked if the saints earth if the Rams one they're great team. They do a lot of things. Really? Well, but I do think this is a bad match for them in terms of what the patriots do. Also, I agree with you. I think the patriots. I wouldn't be shocked, but I lean towards the patriots as the favorites for me here. I would agree. I think there's just there's when you look Bella checks history from Super Bowl twenty five to last week to all this year. It just it seems like one of those games where he's been cataloging things. All season is ready for it. Yeah. Tends to do like nobody else. Right. I it really is an opportunity for him, and that's gonna be fascinating game. But duck people wanna check out more of your stuff previewing the game or in general stuff you've written over the year. And of course, your book where can they find all that? The book is just way you can find on Amazon and triumph books and wherever fine books are sold and all my all twenty two nattering and other stuff can be found on the USA today that's done way or site. Yeah. Highly recommend for the off season. If you're gonna miss football getting back into the flow of things coming smarter fan. Doug's book is highly recommended for the history of how coaches have created opportunities for themselves. And how they've you know, they've they've created things that have become part of the game today based on the as the book says the title says desperation and need to come up with something to advance again forward. But Doug, always a pleasure. I hope we're both. Right. But obviously, let's talk about Monday. Thanks so much for coming on the show. All right. Thanks so much to my guest today. Dominic Foxworth of the undefeated for our USA today. Hope you guys enjoyed this Xs and os heavy show. Really fascinating stuff to me. Of course. I don't I don't know stuff. Dominique of course, next NFL player. Doug, someone who studies when those as well as anybody outside of the ex players fear in the football internet universe. Really smart people to people who I'd recommend you follow their writing. And then on Twitter as well. We're gonna come back tomorrow talk with to cover the patriots regularly theory ESPN Stevens covering the patriots really fascinating stuff from them coming tomorrow, Houston with the you know, some of the match ups on a personal level when it comes to this game coming up on Sunday.

"dominic foxworth" Discussed on The Bill Barnwell Show
"Dominic Foxworth talking about the Rams offense in the first half of the sugar and talk about the patriots and focus on things from their side of the field today in second half of the show. I have moved to different hotel. Joining me from the media center in Atlanta, Georgia say freaking contribute to the show. This year old pal football ciders, Mr. dunk, Farrar, Doug. How are you? Good. It's always nice to have the two thousand six f o draft last back together again. That makes me feel very old. Right. So they're very scary. But yeah, no, it is really cool. I mean, obviously, you know, it has been a while certainly got a couple of things that are interesting this year, you wrote a book about the NFL early this year as well, which will get to again in the plugs. But I'm really fascinated by the matchup. We have from the patriots side of the ball. Let's start with the patriots on defense in terms of how they're going to cover the Rams because you'd think about of course, the famous game plan going back to two thousand one even before we write outsiders, the two thousand one to two I guess, technically. But the two thousand one season Super Bowl game plan against the Rams, which you know, has been feted shortly as but it Marshall Faulk over and over and over again and that will disrupt the Rams offense. I'm gonna ask me questions. I was number one. Do you think that is a fair presentation of of the patriots game plan in that game in two thousand one and number two. Do you think the patriots are inclined to follow that game plan against the Rams again? In here. Eighteen years later given that you'd figure they're going to have Todd Gurley or perhaps he'd Anderson as the focal point of that offense. Well, and of course, as far back as Bella Chet goes through so many different game plans, and so many different adjustments. Because of course, he doesn't do the same thing. We kept queuing. And it's you know, it's amazing the NFL, but he's Wyan is is the guy who all my God he actually game plants river opponent, which says more about the other guys that doesn't. To a very large degree there few things. I think to watch for I talked to Kurt Warner and Willie mcginest earlier this morning Warren brought up the point in week ten the Rams and patriots played in the two thousand one season close loss for the patriots won picked off twice. But the Rams wanted and Warner brought up the point. And I've watched the game and it does come up. And then in that first game the patriots tried to run track with the greatest show on earth brunch. Seventy levintv looks and when I was talking to begin if you said we knew at that point we could not run with the wind. So the idea was then to knock them off at the line of scrimmage the famous blows I game plan. And at this point that storyline goes about saying, well, if you if you wanna take the all twenty two of that Super Bowl and the all twenty two of the patriots chief if championship game. I think you feel a lot of very similar concepts against chief hilly atriums were maniacal about really really tight not just press and not just man, but hyper aggressive pressman, there, Stefan Gilmore was beating Sammy Watkins up over.

"Looking for something that resembles Sean McVay at this point or I mean, that's why you get all these people in the Bella check tree get jobs because they're like, oh, well, maybe he'll be like, I think that's what we're doing. And there is no combine where you can test someone's emotional IQ, which I think is probably the most important characteristic to be successful head coach. Like there's no forty yard dash for that. There is no training for that. Frankly, I think you know, I've talked about this before the the head coaching job is not really coaching necessarily like you do some coaching. But it's a lot more managing delegating. Being a public face. Like these. Things that no coach really been prepared for and the at least through their their previous experience. None of that stuff is what you do as the coordinate or or an office coordinator, the one thing that I would argue maybe being a special teams coach there is some you have to have some social or emotional IQ in order to communicate on special teams because you're making a lot of people do jobs that they don't wanna do. So getting them focused on doing those jobs and doing them. Well, like, I think that requires more than this kind of traditional stereotypical iron fisted head coach model that people seem to think works you're talking to a sports writer about social IT that is your first stake. Mr fucker. Regular, you know, regular sports writer. I think you understand what I'm talking about. You love your self deprecating stuff. But I know better no one hundred percent. And obviously that stuff isn't possible to gauge. But I mean, I don't know. I think we don't have any good evidence. That teams really know what they're doing in the broader context of hiring coaches, and I don't know if that's gonna change. I've no reason to think that's gonna change. But it certainly is really fascinating. When you think about these billion dollar organisations multibillion dollar organizations making hiring decisions based on, you know, being relatively adjacent to someone like Bill check or Sean McVay. All right. We'll be back here with Dominic Foxworth talking more about the Super Bowl in a second. But I wanna talk about our pals at seatgeek, and of course, bring up seek all the time on the show. I use them every single time. I need to buy tickets and event whether I'm going, for example to Vegas this week Vegas this week actually after the Super Bowl gonna go. Check out another night's game. Went the first time. It was great. Guess where I bought tickets to go back a second time that is with our pals at seek because I know I don't have to go to eighteen different ticket sites around the web to look for tickets cacique is going to do that for me. And for you to not just for me. It's not just my privilege as a podcast host. But they're gonna look for them as well. They're going to rate all those things they find. So you're gonna know you're getting a good deal. And.

"It's fair, and it is really two teams really trying to play two different games, and it which is why they might know early on like who's won that battle right because I think of that first patriots drive out just so grind -i against the. That's the dream patriots drive right now. Maybe let's maybe put in that one. But the patriots goes super heavy, and that's not like that's a problem for New England there the NFL's worst defense facing Twenty-one personnel, which patriots love to run patriots have the second highest usage of Twenty-one. So, but but your point about the pass rush is so important, and it's funny because I remember the rule last year. And I think I said you gotta rush Brady with four like so many of the super we talked about the same game for so long. You just start saying the same things over and over. But it it's it's an aphorism because it's true at this point with Brady and New England or the Kansas City rather might be detained left in the playoffs. That's best equipped to do that. Because of the sheer amount of talent they have on that front for you talked about Kris Jones Defoe rd and it was interesting in in the chargers game 'cause they don't really blitz that much this chiefs defense doesn't have to blit. They can get pressure with you know. Stunts and does guys just leaning on their talent alone. And that again, this is going to be them wanting to do one thing is sounds like a really obvious thing. The patriots wanting to do something else in. We might have a sense early on whether the cheese able to do what they want and that side of ball on the other side of the ball. It was interesting the chiefs in their in their divisional round game the offense. You know, they didn't really look dominant. I mean against what was your takeaway? I guess from homes in his first playoff performance. I was impressed. I'll tell you why there's a couple of factors number one people. You need to understand the colts were arguably the best football team on the planet. I'm not kidding. They could even. Since October fifteenth Bill Barna wrote about this a couple of weeks ago going into that game chief excuse me, the colts going into this game where eleven in one in their last twelve that outscored teams by more than anybody in the NFL over those over those over that period. The colts were playing really well. The colts were really young the colts were fast in some certain places t y Hilton maybe slow down a little a little bit. But the Colt had the mo- Joe. That's why there was a lot of. That's why that game opened up the line started to creep toward the colts a lot of people. We're the team that you do not want to play and within ten minutes of that game. It was fourteen nothing and the chiefs it completely changed the equation. I yes, I'm showing a little bit of confidence in the chiefs here of a part of that is the fact that I think that they already Slade one of the big dragons, which is that the team that you did not want to play based on current form was the Indianapolis Colts. You know, the other thing I'll say about the chiefs is this Patrick Mahomes. I heard your friend Dominic Foxworth Okla, my friend to call my quaint Dominic Foxworth said on get up this morning that the thing about Patrick Mahomes. He's never had a bad game. That sounds silly. That's crazy. It's true. And yet I looked at us crazy Patrick Mahomes worst game his worst game by QBR's. So let's put all the decisions together. Was a sixty two point eight. That's good. That's just a good NFL player. His worst game was the twelve nine game against the ravens a game in which that's a really really really good defense. Wink, Martindale defense was really good as everybody knows. He threw for three hundred seventy seven yards Patrick Mahomes. Yes. He he's throwing a few picks this season, but his ability to reduce bad decisions, or at least minimize Batman's and make enough splash plays whether he's throwing left handed or around his back or any other new arm angle..

"Welcome back outside the lines on Ryan Smith. He's got twenty more. Touchdown catches at one hundred and twenty more total receptions than any other NFL receiver over the last six seasons, but Willie be a Steeler next year. Antonio brown. Sagas are big stories today. A macro to speculate on trays and things of that nature. We haven't formally received the request in that regard. So I'm not gonna speculate seems like everyone else is given what's been happening between the team and star white out Antonio Brown. Head coach Mike Tomlin attempting to stem controversy from Brown's allegedly getting into it with a teammate and subsequent practice. No-shows? They didn't being sidelined for the team season. Finale made news for what he didn't say an answering the question did Brown quit on the team. You know, you can describe it in whatever ways you want to describe it. But there was a lack of communication there. The bottom line is that we're playing significant game. He didn't do a good enough job of communicating or being available in hours leading up to that performance. And since yesterday's news conference Brown has been putting himself out there in more ways than one here. He is and this video with James Harrison promising his own tell presser that never materialized, but what did. This appearance as a hippo on the new FOX show, the mask singer singing what else Bobby Brown's my prerogative? That was obviously taped weeks if not longer ago, but the timing is interesting Dominic Foxworth writer for the undefeated and former NFL player joins us. All right. So dominate. There's what the rumor mill says about him possibly being traded in. What's fact, he cost twenty million against the cap if they trade him, so should they? Yeah. I don't think. Well, first of all, I think the cap numbers a little different. I know that that's the dead money. But I think that's assuming if they if he makes it to his salary. I make from what I understand that the cap if they trade him before his roster bonus which is in early March they can get about recoup about fifteen million of that that they don't have to pay roster bonus. They don't have to pay in salary. But I do think it's still a hit on the field for them. But if there's any team that I think is capable of withstanding hit. It's definitely the Steelers. They seem to be kind of like a wide receiver factory where every couple of years they bring out a new all pro wide receiver, and they. Have experienced in having a dealing with a major hole in Iraq..
Matt Groening's new Netflix show, 'Disenchantment,' is a feminist fantasy epic
"A player was killed, and it was like, these are real things that go on and it does not affect many of the players performance on that. You don't make it to the NFL by being by not having the ability to car compartmentalize those things and focus on what's important, no one who's in the league now is actually distracted by these things that coaches say are distractions. I couldn't agree more and quite frankly, you would know you played at that level. You played in the league. It's just it's wildly entertaining to me and I, I just don't see anything wrong with it. But listen, if you are, Josh Allen, not Jared Allen understand why you probably have heard feelings. Hey, let's be aware of this series coming to Netflix from Matt graining,
