A Turning Point: Race Relations In Sports

"It has now been more than four weeks in George. Floyd was murdered nearly a month since we all watched him. Take his last breaths. It feels like so much is different, but real actionable change that takes time. Many who took to the streets in protests have now resumed their daily lives, so now seems appropriate to discuss how sport will handle affairs moving forward. As North American teams and Leagues Continue Their Return to play processes. It is vital that the conversations and promises made when the racial issue was hottest that they do not go away. In a few moments, we will welcome in our panel to discuss how that should happen, but first a look at how we got here in the first place. He will have color have been argued about beliefs, and that's not right. That's not right by any was standards. The point he was making gut twisted from the start. The beginning when Colin Kaepernick I made is public protests peacefully heap I sat on the bench during the national anthem to bring awareness. There's a lot of things that need to change once one specifically police brutality. There's people being murdered unjustly and not being held accountable. It was the summer of two thousand sixteen, when he bursts truly used his platform as an NFL quarterback to speak out against systemic racism by police in the weeks leading into that preseason payment. San Francisco capper Nick had watched. We all had. To white officers pinning down Alton Sterling. And pumping. into his chest and back. He saw the traffic stop in Minnesota when Philander Casteel was killed in front of his girlfriend in charge. And captured it could not understand how mental health therapist Charles Kinsey could be shot by police when he was lying on the ground with his arms up in the air, people of color have been targeted by police. Cops are getting paid leave. For killing people. That's not right. That's not right by anyone's standards. And yet from the beginning law in. pre-game gesture was misrepresented and downright manipulated. The Christ came that he was disrespecting the flag that it was a slap in the face to military personnel. But when active soldiers pointed out, they serve to provide their citizens with the freedom of speech that capture nick was exercising. That narrative quickly was quashed when army veterans who had been in battle, echoed that very sentiment out of national football league buildings team needs I would be disappointed if any of our players didn't stand up for the national anthem personally. I, look at that as a salute to the people who have paved the way for us. Our Organization believes that. You should. Respect the flag and so you'll save those individual decisions to expression show. On individual form. And that became the prevalent message. Don't do it here. Stick to sports. The underlying tone. How dare you protest without our approval we're. Do you get off? Colin Kaepernick criticizing anyone in another uniform. Right the men and women lead for this, I- scenic. First hand. For. Somebody do that to get paid millions of dollars. It's ridiculous. Cabinet remained undeterred. United States Army Bet. Nate! Boyer who did tours of duty in Iraq, and Afghanistan encouraged him to kneel and not sit. By, taking a knee voyeur told him you show your respect for fallen brothers that way. So capture nick did. And then more NFL players followed. And yet the public and political conversation in the US would not steer toward police brutality. No matter how much star athletes peacefully attempted to. And the leader in America's biggest chair. Amy Shirley Wouldn't you love to see one of these NFL owners? When somebody disrespects our flag to say, get that son of a job appealed right now out each fire. I! Capture Nick became a source of division for standing up against injustice. He hasn't taken a snap since that twenty sixteen season. And at this year Super Bowl USA. Today's jared bell minced no words on why that is I. Think it's pretty obvious. He's been blackballed for Colin Kaepernick not to have a job is just. It's the worst look for the NFL. No conversation was more dominant inside NFL. Locker rooms that season than the Kapernick one teams are made up of players of all ages of all backgrounds of so many ethnicities. If you actually want to listen to different perspectives. If you're an athlete who would want to hear what your peers had to say, there would be no shortage of takes to soak in. But fundamentally the want would be to understand capper knicks fundamental point. After George Floyd one of the League's biggest stars reminded us that many still didn't I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country. Maybe that was the crossroads moment because the reaction to. It felt like something had changed almost as. That won't cut. It anymore drew. brees in the rest of the NFL were told right away, the new. Orleans quarterback came under fire. The players in the league had just about enough of the establishment silence. They had captured message. They were not gonNA. Let owners and Roger Goodell get away with it this time. Would have other Jewish Knowledge George if I was. I was George Void. Jewish. And say hi in. Regard. To me right. Breezes all pro receiver found Dallas's bruising runner and Houston's electrifying quarterback, and Kansas City Super Bowl Mvp. And Obi. And they all let you know. We. Condemn Racism and assistant. Matic oppression of black people. National League, admit wrong and silence our players from protesting. Also. Black lives matter black lives matter. Like loves. To Have Patrick Mahomes the next superstar the NFL. Front and center. That was massive. And the very next night the commissioner uttered the words you never imagined would happen. We the National Football League Immune. We were wrong for not listening NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peacefully protests. Read the National Football League believe black lives matter. Progress. Probably a step forward. You want to believe so. The day after the commissioner changed his tune, breeze went to social media again. He'd already made his hollow apologies without actually saying sorry, and he finally seemed to be listening to what some teammates had to say, and after all of that even drew brees somewhat stood up to the president. It won't Change Donald Trump of course, but maybe it will make others think. Perhaps it will create more uncomfortable conversations to allow for a greater understanding among all of us. And at the very least it has given others throughout sport. To have the freedom to finally say their piece open believing they may at last be heard. Or country is in, trouble. Basic reason is race. You're seeing an example of future. That's fighting for you for you. Right now a fine for you got a grandfather that march legs. Dr King in the sixties. And he was amazing. You'll be proud to see us all. Got Pushing? Forward Doing Casey marched with his family. Members of Detroit's organization. An NBA coach using his voice. Over in Jacksonville Jaguars personnel were among the demonstrators. North Philly's finest. He walked. Kyle Lowery's we can. Priorities were set. This though. This is just the start. To silence of countless elites spoken loud. Until you see action from an, don't forget by the leaks themselves. We wonder what the real commitment to progress actually is. What capper protests was about from. The beginning can no longer be debated. And it is now crystal clear to all of us that no athlete should just shut up and dribble. Nelson Mandela famously said. Sport has the power to change the world. Since George, Floyd perhaps we have learned that change can come more from our sporting icons using their voice platform in pursuit for justice than any jumper were swing. Or goal or touched them. Stick to sports. Sure let's stick to sports bettering the world in a new way. Let's start hearing the real message now. And most of all, let's not get the words and actions like Hafer. Knicks twisted. When he tried to begin the real conversation. Before US AGO!

Setting The Record Straight On Colin Kaepernick As An NFL Quarterback

"The opinion to the national football league evolving along with the public's. The NFL is now saying it was wrong not to listen to its players concerns about Racism Commissioner Roger Goodell says the League now encourages the kind of peaceful protests that former quarterback Colin Kaepernick engaged in. No, mention though of Colin Kaepernick in yesterday's statement. We have the latest now from NPR. Sports correspondent Tom Goldman Tom. Thanks so much for being with us. Hi Scott. What do we know about that video statement from the Commissioner? Was it a response to the video that players released yesterday? Yeah, it certainly seems that way day nearly twenty players all African American, and some of the League's biggest stars, they made a powerful video that included some of the players were named of black victims names that have become rallying cries in the protest movement, and here's a bit of that. Brianna Tiempo. Him. To me right now, Scott, the players also called on the NFL to make several strong statements such as condemning racism and admitting it was wrong in silencing players from peaceful protesting. And what are the NFL do? Well, just what the players Astorg late yesterday. The NFL released video of Commissioner Goodell and here's some of that we the National Football League condemn racism in the systematic oppression of black people. We the National Football League emit. We were wrong for not listening to NFL players earlier. And encourage all speak out in peace league protests Tom what's the significance of those statements from the Commissioner? Well the NFL has a race problem around seventy percent of the league's players are African American, but twenty eight of the thirty two head coaches are white. Only two of thirty two general managers are people of Color, and of course Scott the NFL has a Colin. Kaepernick problem as well. You remember back in two thousand sixteen. He began kneeling during the national anthem before games to protest police treatment of minorities and social inequality a handful. Handful of players joined him, and they all endured a huge backlash. You know they were branded as unpatriotic against the flag and country into this day. Capper Knicks still doesn't have an NFL job, so forget del to say. The League was wrong for not listening to these players for him to condemn racism. That's significant Will we see Kaepernick get a job. Will we see more? Minority hires in important positions. That'll be even more significant. With Commissioner Goodell's statement and show many players. Speaking up and speaking openly now has has the landscape of professional football changed. You know it feels like it's changing. The drew brees story from this week. I think is an indication breeze is the star quarterback for the New Orleans Saints in an interview. He said he'll never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag, the same argument of course the

"So that would be. That would be my hope Mike And you know I, just I I'm I'm heartbroken for our country right now, but I will tell you this about twenty twenty and I know a lot of people have said that twenty twenty is been a horrible year it's been terrible with corona virus, and the riots, and the murder of George Floyd and the continued systemic racism that is part of this country has been part of this country since you know since slavery. But I would say that twenty twenty we, we refer to that his vision and clarity right, and has given us some clarity and has shown us where we are in an honestly I. Think to a degree what we're about and and it gives us a real clarity on what we need to do to change it, so that would that would be my hope and then anyhow I know that kind of a deep podcast for today and Now you're right. It's twenty. Twenty has tested us in ways that and is revealed things in a way where we have. We've learned a lot about the collective us. We've learned about us. You know ourselves. And I think that the lessons of of twenty twenty. Are are going to be felt for a long long time and this was. This, was this is a watershed moment in history. This is one where. They're going to be teaching classes about this year. This one's going to go down in the history book, so we're living it so yeah, there's there's no doubt we're GONNA. WE'RE GONNA learn from it I hopefully be better for right I and I would like to say this just in regards to our leadership in this country and or political leadership, and and the people that have been placed in in positions of leadership I would like to say this that. I. Think is men. We've been sold a bill of goods on what strength is right. You know we talk about. We Talk About Sexual Conquest, and we talk about you know dominating, and we talk about all these things and we've seen our leadership. We've seen our president. You know talk about strength. The true strength is what you're going to see. From nalco Jenkins and and and Michael Thomas, and Alvin Kamara. WHO ARE GONNA open up their hearts and forgive. True strength in my mind is about forgiveness. It's about compassion. It's about love. It's about kindness. It's about embracing people. And loving people. and. That's that's true strength. And that's the strength that I hope. America, I hope were strong enough. To actually put down that. Bullshit bill goods. We've been sold as men from the time we were little. Don't cry. Big Boys don't cry right. You gotta be tough. Hey, it's all about you know. It's all about money, and it's all the bullshit that we have been sold as men. Since the time we were toddlers. And I. Hope we can set that stuff aside, and we can have true leaders who honestly care who honestly love, and who honestly have empathy and compassion that we can heal this country and and we can you know that we can stop Dead it dead in our tracks with things that we have done that have been just been abysmal horrific horrific, so that would be my hope and I know this one's Kinda deep, but that's Kinda warm at. That's kind of the week. It's been in the NFL. It really isn't about the. The other stuff and we can get to that next week. You know you're you're.

She dropped dime now Donnie, she drop quarter. Right right so anyway. He. Had written her in a tweet in twenty, nine thousand nine just a year ago, but no. This is a quote from him. They were talking about guns and all this, because obviously, that's been a big conversation in America. Control and so on and so forth. And he writes, but no guns are good. They need to let me get suppressors. Just make them very expensive, so only elite white people can get them Haha and then. I, guess later on in the text. He said you know. I'm not an elite white person. Well, he may not have been in two thousand nineteen, but he knew he was going to get drafted in the NFL which he just did, and he would soon be a quote, unquote elite, white person, and here's the Rub Rob. He released a statement today. Here's what he say. I'm just going to read the first part. I am extremely sorry that I chose to use the words elite white people in a text message conversation. Although I never meant to imply that. I am an elite white person as stated later in the conversation, there's no excuse for that word, choice and sentiment.

Brees says he 'completely missed the mark' in flag comments

"Drew, brees wrote an instagram apology today It's very long a read a little bit. In an attempt to talk about respect, unity and solidarity centered around the American flag in the National Anthem I made comments that were insensitive in completely missed the mark on the issues. We're facing right now. In our country, they lacked awareness and any type of compassion or empathy. Instead those words have become divisive and hurtful. He went on to say. He stands with black community in the fight against systematic systemic racial injustice and police brutality while supporting the creation of real policy change John Your reaction to the apology well. It's not me. That needs to buy his apology. It's black people and tomorrow. I'm doing the morning show tomorrow I'm paying off that Oh. Yeah, Long Game I'm doing this show with key and L Z so. I was listening this morning to those guys and key and l zero done with him. They don't want to hear his apology and I think that's probably a typical reaction. From most black people because I think what drew brees showed was something that you know not that. I wouldn't call drew brees racist. They might I. wouldn't I wouldn't put that label on anybody, but I would say he doesn't get it right and I think that's part of the problem. Is that a lot of white people don't get it. That the protest had nothing to do with the flag may to me. That's not a hard concept to grasp, but apparently for others it is. And so I thought the reaction and I think drew. BREES has a chance here with how he handles himself moving forward. For this to be a teachable moment for white people I think Black People Reno. They know what's up. They know they've been feeling this way for a long time. We haven't been listening I think the events of the past two weeks are GonNa make people listen. They are tired of preaching the same thing over over and having us. Listen to them and I think that if drew brees now makes an example out of himself. If I was if I was in charge of drew brees, this career, I would have them do a media tour and the first thing I would say. Is You know what I screwed this up and I think I'm an example of what a lot of white people think that they don't understand the full plate of this problem

Mean I'm the first woman I was surprised yesterday to hear drew brees and his comments, essentially coming out and talking about the flag in this time, and what it means, because so much of the conversation now around the NFL will start to circle around Colin Kaepernick, and where the NFL really is on race relations, and where the NFL really is trying to bring everybody together, and you know obviously when you've got an NFL head coach. Coach Vic Fangio coming out and saying he doesn't see racism. In the NFL in today's world with what's going on, it's fair to then look at it through a microscope right? You're going to look at it from a different level so as we continue to look at it I was surprised because we hear so much and see so much in the past of drew brees bringing people together now. I understand that obviously drew. brees is allowed to have his own opinion. He's allowed to feel a certain way on all of this of course. Course he is, and people are conversely allowed to disagree with him. The biggest part that can come from all of that isn't an apology because we've already seen that drew. brees already came out today and apologized on instagram for his comments yesterday in a really well thought out statement. What I really think needs to happen to this honest conversation and listening I mean that's the biggest part of it that no longer happens whenever we turn this debate, no matter what whenever we turned the debate of what's going on in the country right now. Now Back to Colin Kaepernick. Taking the people twists that into whatever they wanted to be to fit the narrative that they already have. If we could ever reach a spot where no matter what people believed on it, they would be open to to talking about it and listening through all of it. Maybe we could actually all come together on some of these issues, Tim Hasselbeck joins us now on the shell, Pennzoil performance line. Tim Thanks for the time and I appreciate. What was your immediate reaction when you heard the comments from debris? I'm in my immediate reaction was You know in this current time here. There's no empathy. In the answer that he gave the interview for. Really so how so many? Of his teammates, just peers across the NFL You know we're feeling and so. You know my initial reaction was that. There's going to be. You know a really a sense of betrayal from. You know people that probably consider drew a friend or teammates, or just you know whatever it is, and in terms of their experience withdrew. And and it is what we saw. You know I mean clearly just from around the league, but then you know also from teammates and guys like Malcolm Jenkins and I, just think a lot has happened since the initial. You know the initial comments, my initial reaction to it You know a lot has happened right I mean you know drew? Then you know apologizes, and then is apology. Has a lot more empathy And and you know asking for forgiveness and. You, know we've seen the Mario Davis you know, accept his apology and and forgive him, which is remarkable and You know. Our I guess you know my reaction now through all of it is just kind of hope that This is kind of an example of. You know how to people that were. Really different spots less than twenty four hours ago. You know and one of them probably really hurt and you know disrespected and and betrayed. To. Come together for a better understanding and you know, make this a better society. Now. I'm never going to pretend. That I've been in locker rooms, but I've certainly been on tour buses and that's close quarters. Sometimes when you go through these things and somebody says something you forgive him in the moment, but it just sort of continues to flare up. You know that's just the way it looks in close quarters with people that are almost like family. How forgiving our NFL locker rooms. and how capable are they of actually letting something like this? Be Behind them. Really forgiving the main there. They are One of the really great things about you know playing football, especially playing the full plan football at the collegiate level you know depending on where you go to school or playing in the NFL is that? You know the teams are big, and because the teams are big, and because people come from, you know so many different backgrounds There's a it's a really kind of accepting. Environment and barriers are kind of taken down in those environments and so they're really forgiving, but like saying all of that. You know prior to here into Mario Davis. You know I thought man this is. Like I don't know how this ends up working out in that Saints Locker Room You know that was my reaction at that time, but then. You know seeing the Mario Davis who's really respected on that team and a leader on that team You know seeing his. you know response to drew and the way not just for giving him, but just the way that he talked about drizzle leader. You know it, just it. It does go to show you that like. You know even when you don't think something you know would be possible that it is you know and it is because of..

"Your Business and your dream choose from over thirty coverage options, progressive, visit progressive, dot com, and when you look across the board at at what we expect at some point when you look at what we expect from drew brees. I. Think that's what made this so shocking people are used to drew brees, saying and doing basically the right thing and you're looking at drew. Brees is saying and doing so much. That is easy to look at and say okay where he's coming from. It's rare to see drew brees. Walk Anything Back Right. So that's what makes all of this so difficult. Because what it is done quickly is it is shifted a conversation. That doesn't need to be shifted right now. Suddenly it's taken a conversation. That's very important that we've been having on this show for the last several days, and it takes that conversation and makes it about something completely different right everything that's. That's going on in the country. Right now has nothing to do with what was discussed in this moment so unfortunately, what happens when he comes out and says what he says is that it takes an shifts everything back to an argument that's been going on for the last couple of years to an argument that has not been successful for most people over the last couple of years, and it's able to shift that focus back to their I want to keep the focus. Of the conversation about what we're doing to move forward and how we do it, and if that this is part of that conversation fine, but we can't let happen. Are the words of Drew Brees in this instance? Take the focus away from what we're trying to talk about right now. I take your take on ESPN radio, and there was a lot more conversation about drew brees and what he had to say, and that came on I take also in the form of Tony Dungy Tony Dungy Joint I take talking with Laura Rutledge Stephen and Max about his thoughts, drew brees, initial statement, and in fact, then his thoughts on the apology. I WANNA. Get your reaction to droop reasons, initial comments, and then the apology that he's now released. What do you think about all of it? Well I was disappointed in the initial comments for Sir. This is the time when we need unifying. Device voices, but I I believe in the Bible and I believe as a Christian that you accept the policies and the Bible says a tree is known by its fruit. And that's what we have to look for withdrew I've known him twenty years. I consider him a friend. I've seen good fruit in his life I. Believe we'll see good Fr- from here on out, so I'm GonNa, accept his apology and move forward and see if this can be a moment that brings us together rather than driving a wedge to take us apart I completely agree.

He was kneeling for all the people that weren't able to nail for all the peoples whose voice weren't able to be heard, and it was against pro police brutality, and this is what I think if you're not educated on on this. topic if you're not somebody who has went through it or know somebody who went through it I think you should really keep your mouth. I don't think this is a place for you to speak out and say anything. That's going on right now.

It it takes us back a hundred steps again you know now. We gotTA start back to try to get people back to the point to where no is never been about. The flag is always been about police brutality and we need to do something about this and African American community the Latino Community and people of color have been the brunt of this police brutality for years and years and years. But the problem at a it simple. That's that's society and people do not. Do not take the time to figure out what you're talking about I've said it twice today.

"All right here. He is drew Brees. Okay. We now. Welcome on drew Brees. You don't need real introduction here. Super Bowl champion starting quarterback for the New Orleans Saints holder of basically every passing record ever. But there is your introduction. You are doing new ad with untuckit, which we love untuckit shirts. We've been wearing them forever. The ad is great. Because it is the first time I think you have publicly talked about the call in the NFC championship game. So are we are we over it is this the last moment that you can kind of move on. Now that you've done the ad and profited off it or where we at with with the call being botched in the NFC championship game on on a on a professional level. I it's it's something that we gotta let go off and believe that we have better things head of us worry about the things that we can control and the opportunity that we have this offseason to get a little bit better and going to the extent of the season with high expectations, and and you know, hopefully deliver on that. But. On on this. No, listen. This was an opportunity to deliver. The core message with which is what untuckit is all about. But at the same time doing it in in kind of a light and humorous way. And I think we were able to do that. I think it it's a it's a great reflection of what the untuckit brand is all about in in in having created the the perfect shirt that is is meant to be worn on talk. But and then at the same time, you know, you deliver a little Zinger at the end of the commercial that you know, people can laugh about right? Was so nice about playing for the saints. I have to magic is your fan base is so passionate. They're like they're like attack dog. So you can kinda move on professionally say, okay, we've got to take these steps to get better and focus on next year. But you still know that the fans are going to be doing crazy shit like putting up billboards in Atlanta dressing up like blind rafts during mardi gras have has there ever reached a point where you're like? Okay, guys. I think it's time for us as a city to move on. Are you always kind? Happy to see them kind of going after your enemies for you. I love our fans. I love our fans we got the greatest fans in the world, and they are passionate group. Listen, everybody was everybody was was was pretty upset after that game. And after the no call, and I think that that all these kinda live as a little bit of a a way to call it. How fun you know for for the New Orleans faithful. But I think we're our fans are is excited about this upcoming season. As we are obviously the expectations are high. They always are. But you know, I feel like that's that's what makes it so much fun. So we were talking before we hopped on about your coach, Sean Payton, who we know. And we've had him on the show before he said publicly that it took him a couple of weeks to get over that call and kind of move on. How long was it for you? How long before you kinda shook it off and didn't wake up thinking about it all the time where it took a while. I mean, probably into you. I started really training again. And and getting my sites info. Focus on this next season. Always take some time just to get away. And and recharge the battery, obviously, it's a long and grueling season every year, especially when you you make it that far in the playoffs and unfortunately falls short. So I think for everybody it's it's good. It's healthy to get away. Try to clear your mind. And then reset your your focus in your sights on which you gotta do to get better for next season. I've got a real tough question for you..

"drew brees" Discussed on First Take

"If the MVP race was in fact, over clearly drew Brees would be handed the MVP, but there's almost a third of the season to go first third of the season. Look like the Rams are going to be one of the greatest teams of all time. Maybe they are in the saints are just better. Like who knows the point is there's a lot of football left to be played. And a lot of other great players in the league. I will say this about drew Brees. So far this season. I think of the best play I've ever seen at the quarterback position. I think of Tom Brady and seven with all those weapons. I was like oh my God. Tom Brady's putting up Peyton Manning numbers? But he's doing it with like that Tom Brady winter stuff. Right. I think Peyton Manning fifty five touchdowns. It's now drew I think of droopy. He's like that he's playing so. Well, right now, he's actually in my view elevating his position on the all time list because he's now hitting peaks that are. Just absurd and I noticed this with aging great players, including LeBron James in order to stay at that level that they've reached they need to be so cerebral, they need you rely on their wisdom and their and their experience so much to compensate for anything. They've lost physically that they just I mentioned the last dragon couple of days ago, they got that clothe Bruce LeRoy glow. Or the Joe enough like like, they're they're operating on a whole other level at a certain point. Now, I bring up the cliff because that's usually what happens in order for them to get their their compensating for other things that aren't there. Then all the sudden, even that's not enough, and they fall off through breezes thirty nine and I do notice that with a lot of these players that I mentioned that Derek jeeter had a renaissance here like that. It's right before they're not the same anymore. Drew Brees is playing out of his mind. Great. Mahomes Goff girly Aaron Donald there are so many other candidates where if they have a strong push in the last third of the season. And drew Brees loses a couple of games, which is possible MVP is someone else's at this moment. Clearly, the MVP too much football left. I think as long as the saints keep winning. This is going to be drew Brees award to lose. And the only reason that the safe won't win is because drew starts to not play quite as well. But I don't see that happen. I think the same though is this is that we're finally talking about this guy as an MVP after he had already thrown for five thousand yards five different times in his career already. And the fact that he had never really been taken. Seriously. The reason why he's taking serious now because there's been so much attention drawn to the fact that offense is right now are putting up numbers that have ridiculous Star Wars like rate because defensive player in the NFL's. Absolutely be honest with you. It's pathetic in one word. It's pathetic. So now, there's so much attention on how offenses have become so innovative in how now it's all. It's an offense driven league. All the brain power me up at the side of the ball. As far as play calls are concerned. And look drew drew was just one of those people who is this taking advantage of that trend right now. So he has his best weapons ever. Well, not. I don't know. Drew has always had some pretty good weapons. I think he has he has his best weapons in terms of he has a balanced attack. Now, and he has a defense now that can play championship caliber football when they're playing it. There's something out the way he's like what he's throwing guys open who aren't open, and they he's been doing this for a long time at this. He been doing this for a long time. And if you also look at a lot of look if you look at a lot of his completions. The Mike Thomas Thomas is uncontested seventy eighty percent of the time because I I am so disenchanted with defensive play in the NFL right now that'd be a whole nother offense. It'd be a whole 'nother show, but I'm not going to take anything away from drew..

"This is sportscenter right now Collins New Orleans when their ten th straight game and along the way became the first team in the Super Bowl era with four undrafted players catching touchdowns. Let's show. You the action drew Brees the saints hosting Matt Ryan in the south and Thanksgiving Day opening dry for the saints. Drew Brees hitting Tommy Lewis for the touchdown. Now. Lewis is one of the guys who went on grafter undrafted. He's scored his second career touchdown saints seven nothing under a minute in the second quarter. Now Ryan hitting Julio Jones in this land. Jones picks up the first down but tries to jump over the tackle gets drilled in fumbles saints cover that one. And in the fourth. Got more action. Breeze finds Keith perk would for the touch on. He was one of the four guys and draft day recess asked after the game about those four dice going touchdowns. I heard that loved us that that's actually one of my favorite ones. You know, we're down some receivers from the beginning of the year until now and these guys are having a step in this some roles and. Do some things that maybe we're unexpected. Now, that's the first take. When the saints go marching past a number one, drew Brees, something special fells. I think tender age of thirty nine Louis Riddick. New hope. Right. How about you? It's good. All good, Steven A. What do we think the NFL MVP race officially over? Well for me it is. I mean, listen, I think the Patrick Mahomes a cessation Nolan. I think there's a lot of other people have really really good years, but the kind of year that the drew Brees in New Orleans. Saints are having right now. There's just something special to behold, he two four hundred seventy one yards last night, which is incredibly pedestrian for him. But if you watch the game, you could tell he was a control the entire game. He was just picking apart. The Atlanta Falcons piece by piece you just see the precision, you could just see how much they missed the aunt Joan's, obviously. And how much they will compromise defensively they weren't gonna stop the stage when the saints needed to do anything. And that's just the way that it was now, obviously, Atlanta health didn't help themselves at all those three pivotal turn overs. You're Matt Ryan getting stripped early Julio Jones somersault in the air gets popped having a ball pop loose. And of course, Ridley near the end of the game going into the end zone and he fumbled right before he ran into the end zone. So we recognize it landed in help themselves. So we get that. But what you watched New Orleans you watch this offense with Kamara is explosive as he is capable of, you know, being a dual threat to the is running the football plus pass catching out of the backfield able to do what he does Mark Ingram particularly short yard situations bringing that roughhouse those roughhouse tendencies to the equation supplement. Whatever Kamara was giving you Michael Thomas doing what he's done this kid Smith a rookie doing what he does. You just look at them right now. And they just give you the impression offensively. They will do whatever needs to be done when needed all when they choose to. And nobody's going to do anything about it that is solely because of the soli that's primarily because of the greatness of drew Brees, Kamara obviously is a big big deal. But drew Brees is just something special, man. And I don't see the kind of season that they having right now this destiny that they'd seem that they seem to be on the Laura just coming into the stadium with him. I just don't see. See anybody looking at this year old playing the way that he's playing and ignoring what we're seeing I think you'd be you'd be right?.
