Eight five five two unto for two to seven Marlin from Florida's up on CBS sports radio. Hey, marlin. Buddy. Hawaii are pal Jerry Mack. Marlin let me ask you a question you'll from Saint Augustine. What baseball team? Do you love to hate? Okay. If you had to pick one, which which do you like the least? I like the least. Baseball baseball MLB. Let me ask you a question. Who was the first baseball. Be right now because he's damn contracts thrown out there. Okay. Thirty million dollars per child. Give me a break. He he what he what he better to forty nine last year. No, try to create hunter where you're talking about. Who was the first for Harper head to forty nine. He got three hundred thirty from the Phillies. Okay. Yeah. That's okay. It was the first baseball player that got a million dollar contract Nolan. Ryan, no one. And you know, what I was at. And I was there live in person in Arlington, Texas. Seventh and found no hitter. Nice. That was that was cool. That was cool. Baseball one called. I'm a bus on your all your people are calling. But some of my cowboy right? Mcavoy's? Why does everybody hate mcavoy's because? Nothing in the last twenty years. But why is everybody hate to? I wanna know why y'all hate it's a fair point. If you say just the last twenty years. I can give you on teen reasons. Why people eight Cowboys a lot of them. Go back prior to the last twenty years. You're right. People didn't like the Cowboys because. Well, most recent research Jerry Jones is probably as obnoxious and owner is there is he's the George Steinbrenner of the National Football League. If you're only you like him because who go to great lengths to try and win if you are a fan of another team, you hate him because he's a blowhard knees. Always talking how to turn and trying to think that he's the most important person in league when he isn't always every single year. I'd say the biggest reason is twenty five thirty years ago thirty five years ago, whatever it was when NFL films if you're looking for one group one individual it happens to be a group to blame. I probably NFL films more name, but yells 'cause they used to create the highlight films for all the teams, and they were the ones who termed the Cowboys as America's team and every other fan base thought, what makes them America how they become America's team holiday. Good enough to. Why aren't we America's team people hated the fact that they were deemed America's team and the Cowboys promoted themselves as America's team that's a good. That's a good point. I got I got one thing to say, no, let you go. So I'm the same age of the Super Bowl, right? Well, the Cowboys are my when I was eight years old the civil landed on my birthday January twelfth nice. And we lost to the Steelers. That was one length swan went off. All this crazy passes that we lost the following year. Cowboys the day after my birthday we lost again to the steel. All my birthday. They played the Rams and all I wanted for my birthday this year. I wanted to Cowboys a win and eagles to win because I wanted to eagles Dallas for the NFC gem Sergei. Well, my Cowboys let me down again. That's what happens when he a a January birthday these things happen. I happen to be January guy to end of the month. And the Super Bowl is born on my birthday a couple of times now today push the Super Bowl back to December. And you're in early January. You don't have to fear anymore. You had a of you're gonna do is get a playoff games. I now in that middle zone. My birthday pops up always the time in between the league championship games and the actual playing of the Super Bowl. I'm always on the weekend birthday. That's the weekend that my birthday, always falls. Yeah. The Cowboys the cheerleaders. They made cheerleaders famous with the cowboy cheerleaders. Those who liked it loved it. And we're forever going to love it those who hated it and thought it was misogynistic and like well that's on the Dow's Cowboys. That's why I hate them. They've had some players like Hollywood Henderson like Charles Haley who've been tough guys to root for who've been obnoxious individuals away back to Duane Thomas. Yeah. I know I can I can easily understand why the Dallas Cowboys are the most hated team in the National Football League. It's harder now today because they don't regularly go to the Super Bowl I under Tom Landry. And then when Jerry Jones came in and took over the team, and they were a staple they were going to Super Bowl every year, or it seemed like it every year, and they wanna bunch so yeah, it's always starts with jealousy because you had such a level of success. And then you got to add to it and the Cowboys certainly had ways and means dad to the disdain Tony from port. St. Lucie is up on CBS sports radio right down to college football teams be Alabama and Notre Dame. Right. Absolutely. Right. And there's a big drop off after everybody else and for the longest time. It was noted game. And then everybody else, but with what saving is done since he's taken over. Alabama and the now expected nature of them playing for the championship every single year. It is put them on a level if not above Notre Dame as the most hated college football program. Hey, twenty years ago was you went? That's true. Do you used to be the Altona? You're good. I completely forgotten about that. Yeah. That'll tell you will some bad Jimmy Johnson when he was running the you. They were the most hated college football team and he took over the Cowboys. Now the Cowboys it already built bay trid. But he jacked it back up a couple of notches when he took over as the big dog for the Cowboys. You had gimme knows how to push the right buttons. And get people to talk about his team beat either good or bad. The one player Peter Alonzo. What are you? Gotta get beat. I have fat. Wait, and he's only had like five hundred. Okay. Yeah. You I guarantees not hitting five hundred don't if he's going to get down to his way Pete. But he's the guy who went to port Saint Louis, you gotta be a fan. I know you are a big Dom Smith fan too. And he played yesterday. Mets have two guys two youngsters at first base that happens tablets themselves yet. But Lonzo the guy who's going to get most of the time. And I've seen him hit some balls. I made a ton in spring training. Rightfully the Mets kept him on the roster. There was speculation that he could get sent down. Because teams love to do that star superstar high level prospects sent him out for two weeks. And then bring them back up. You guaranteed an extra year before they get the free agency. Well, if you're in it, if you take your legitimate contender and a guy is unquestionably the best player at that position in spring training. You got to do the right thing by fan base? You gotta bring them north with you. And the Mets did that with pita Lonzo and the Padres did that would Fernando tat junior who most people speculated was going to start the year in the minors. He's the Padres shortstop is the reason why Manny Machado signed as a third baseman with the Padres during this off season because they knew they were open. He was going to make the team and be there shortstop for the next decade. Plus did made the team out of spring training earn despite Padres did the right thing and kept them up. I think we're seeing less of that than we've seen in previous years. I one more quickey Kerry from Phillies up on CBS sports radio. Right. Tarry Joseph Anthony, L A wishes McDonald junior how I divorced. What have you been good? I haven't seen you for a while. But we're not going to get into that. 'cause you don't wanna relive that moment when I saw okay? When you were showing just girls, high school, girls basketball, and I tried to recreate means you're green commercial games were particularly pleased with that. Okay. I remember playing against Kristen Clement. But I don't remember recreating to mean. Joe? Greene ping. Yeah. On your way off to quit. I was walking with a quote kind of. We're not to go. Now. Now now that you brought it up I'm going to tell tale. I'm going to defend myself. I was working down in Philly. You've only been down there. A couple of years. They add an all American high school girls basketball player, but named Kristen Clement. She went to Tennessee won a national championship there. She's one of the preeminent high school basketball players in the country that year and somebody bought it up because I was playing charity team for our radio station. Jody you think you're a player. You're a good girl come on top school girls basketball. I haven't seen Christian play. But I know a good years, but I could beat or one I want. So they set up the game against our carry affair mid halftime of a game somewhere in town. And I met her before the game real nice, girl and a hell of a player too. But I thought it was going to be able to beat her and the person who organized it got together and said, well, it's up to you to would you rather use referee. Or would you rather just go school yard and call your own foul? And I said, Kristen whenever you want. So she goes what we'll call it on fouls. We don't need a referee. Okay. Fine. Then we go out there onto the floor. And she is just hacking away at me. Because she knows why call a foul. I'm a twenty something year old man. She's an eighteen year old girl. I'm going to get booed off the cork. She slapping my arms. She's got her hand in my back. She drove on one play and I blocked Arshad. I got booed unmercifully. How dare you block this girl shot? So I stopped playing defense. I later move out twenty some odd feet from the basket. And I let her hued T drained like four or five straight threes. I think I was up for two three at one point. I think she won eleven to five because he just went outside and started making shot after I couldn't block or I couldn't run with her. She was faster than I was. I got Pete Farren square. That's pretty much. How I remember. That's exactly how I was going to lie. No. That's exactly how it went brings you. It wasn't in Philadelphia. Springfield, springfield. I sorry. Yeah. The summer my bed. Would you point? I was calling really calling about that..

"She got him my other favorite, by the way. CBS has Evan Washburn. Who the other side, Leonard porter? He when CBS does the Super Bowl he gets to talk to the losing coach. And I'm pretty sure this was only on CBS S N. I did not see it on the actual big CBS post game show. But Evan Washburn often looks more shaken than the losing coach like he he start. I think it was. Rod Rivera couple of Super Bowls gonna guess a coach, Bobby. I don't know. What did I don't know? What to say by God? You know, you must and Ron Rivera actually looked fine. And I was like on Rivera's. Okay. Somebody go. Find somebody go get some help for Evan Washburn. But I just want to know that he he sort of corrected this time and Sean McVay legitimately look sadder than Washburn. That was that was kind of a big moment in in Super Bowls for me. Quote of the game. Or of the post game goes to Rams tackle Andrew Whitworth told our very own Robert Mays at the end of the day. We're all gonna die. Which feels like the existential sequel to the all-time quarter quote from Duane Thomas running back the Cowboys who said if the Super Bowls the ultimate game. How come they're playing it again next year, which is really fantastic. They are book ends if you want to get past ex's nodes, go talk to Wayne Thomas or Andrew Whitworth. That was awesome. Like, we're this had a great role ever since he signed with the with the Rams has taken on this weird like spiritual animal role for the for the entire press corps. I don't know if it was of like the sad shape of the teams that he played for before signing there. But you know, it it there is something very interesting about, you know, some players will sign with a team like the Rams and be seen is like front runners or ring chasers. And he's just sort of like this, you know, workaday guy who's just like trying to find success in a win a world where he's never been able to sniff. It, you know, and and and it it it sort of fitting, maybe maybe I'm reading too much into it. And maybe it's. Just that this guy is just been the most incredible, quote, the entire time or this just sort of like dark philosopher their edits entire career. That was a real a real incredible moment in one of those great moments where multiple people like everybody in the scrum tweeted at quote the exact same time. You know, everybody's everybody wants to get that out there in the world. Yeah. And maize tweeted, the context makes a lot more sense. But it just sounded like the ultimate dire losers locker room, quote, by the way, I think it's part of the part of the part of the power of it is how Andrew Whitworth looks. Because he looks kind of like, you know, John Fetterman who's the Lieutenant governor, Pennsylvania mayor. So like when existential truths are coming out of the mouth of a guy that just looks like that, it's a little bit more of a little bit gives it a little more who've I wanna close David by talking about the Washington Post commercial. They're ran in the fourth quarter during the two minute. Warning. Let me give you a little bit of Tom Hanks doing the narration. When our nation is threatened. There's someone to gather the facts. To bring you the story. No matter the cost. Because knowing empowers us. Knowing helps us decide. Knowing keeps us free. They used to have a halftime act of the Super Bowl called up with people that was like in our childhood. So this is up with journalism. This is this is the sequel, this is the I love this tweet from our old pal. Dan, amber, of course, the newspaper industry would invest its remaining millions in an ad that runs when the game is essentially over no one cares anymore. That was. Also a note from page six which might be true Jeff visas pulled the plug on a twenty million dollars Super Bowl ad for his spaceflight company,.

"MAC now Zely shop right Williamstown, New Jersey Super Bowl Sunday. And Ray did let me just start right out. I am so excited about this. No, I'm not. You had me going there for a minute. I thought maybe you were telling me the truth. I've been struggling right? I really had listened Ray you you are my football muse. You are you are my you're the guy who can who who who cares. So deeply about the institution of football. The sport of it. And I know that I'm not alone in this today. And I know there are reasons for this, and we'll get into the reasons for this. But I gotta tell you Ray. I could care less about the Super Bowl the night. I'm here doing a sports talk show the day of the Super Bowl, and I don't want. My message to be. But that's how I feel. So Ray your challenge today to give me interested. And I'm no, I'm not alone in this game tonight. The big game is they call it on commercials when they don't have the licensing for it. Right. What it what was Duane Thomas? Ask is this the ultimate game? Instead, it's the ultimate game where they play it again next year, right? Wants a pretty good line. It's a very good. I forgot it didn't say much for guy the measured his words his career usually went Duane Thomas spoke. There was more than a kernel of truth to it. We went yesterday. We went over yesterday. You know, how how it's going to be a tough one for eagle fans. It was a year ago that they want it we spent yesterday celebrating. Now, I had a fun show yesterday. Got a lot of nice feedback from people who said it was it was really a good time. One more time to have kind of that Irish wake of a show where we celebrated all the good stuff that the good times and the plays and the people, and who you watch it was just it was a blast. And then there's today we can't really do it again. I mean, we can. But you know, you can't just live at forever. So today kickoff six thirty right? It's New England Patriots with Tom Brady and Bill Belichick in the evil empire and forty seven hundred shots Robert Kraft up in his owner's box and all of the stuff that goes with that against a team that I don't think a whole lot of people care about particularly in their hometown. Which is the Los Angeles Rams with Jared Goff, who's going to be compared to Carson will often the Super Bowl wants isn't. Right. You're gonna hear that that's already started with the narrative of the young genius coach and nothing against Sean McVeigh, who's young and obviously very good. See played Doug Peterson in his career. They matched up. Yes, they have a couple of times those games Turner right now Dougie fresh is got to lead did was did one of when a coach of the year ward. Coach McVeigh did really last. He didn't make it two in a row. He didn't win last night. He wanted last year. He won it last JD win the Super Bowl last year. No he denied he didn't even wanna play off game. Okay. I'm just checking because you know, he's the Boy Genius. And I again, I got nothing against him except that and a personal way. I do. So Ray I'm going to come to you now and tell you that. I don't care about the halftime band. Uh-huh. Maroon five I mean, I don't often care about Super Bowl halftime shows. But sometimes they'll get an artist. I really like, you're right. She loved his salute to Motown. They did a couple of years di-. Did I thought that was terrific? And he goes every once in a while the have one that hits you when the eagles play Jacksonville. They had your idol Paul McCartney. Yeah. It was pretty cool. It was very good. I don't care about the commercials because I've already seen them all because now that they have this invention. Call the internet's you can basically preview every commercial they're gonna have in the Super Bowl. So you don't even get that kind of, you know, hey, this is cool. I don't have a lot of people coming over I invited. My dad come over my brother-in-law, by the way, neither is committed. Yet, fellas if you're listening, my wife would like to know she's gonna put out food, although we have an arranged any food in past. I would always call my friend. Glenn gross fat jokes barbecue, get a nice red. Ribs, exactly didn't bother really you. Didn't now. Oh my goodness. Now, we really are taking a pass on the superman am, and I'm gonna watch which I understand. You're not alone in that. Okay. So you're correct. I'm not alone on that. And I do believe that the majority of people in this town have no juice for this game. Suray? I come to you at ten oh five the morning of the Super Bowl with a very simple request. Yeah. Make me care. Come on. Right. You're good. Oh, it's sorta like I sort of feel like I'm in I need to invoke the the Mike Reid song. How can I make you love me? If you don't. It's it's sort of that it's sorta like that. If if you don't feel it you don't feel it and you have heard from more than more than one person this week. I mean, just about everybody, I bump into the talks about the game says, you know, I don't even know if I'm gonna watch I can't tell you. I wish I had a dollar for every time somebody this week said to me, I I don't know what I'm going to watch this game. And part of it is part of it is patriot fatigue, which isn't unique to Philadelphia. I mean, people all over the country feel that way which I understand at this point. But the other part of it is just people just comparing their emotion or feeling today to the emotion they felt a year ago, which was that was the highest of highs. And so I mean you've come down from. Yeah. People are getting a Benz. I mean, that's pretty steep drop from where you were this time last year to where you are right now. And the combination of the two were just saying, you know, what I'll take a pass on this one. And I get that. I mean, I don't feel that way. I mean, I'm enough of a of a football historian. I'm enough of a football. Geek, I suppose that to me the whole year kind of leads up to this game. And if the eagles are rented great, but if they're not it's still the game that defines the season. And and I I I have a different view of the patriots. I mean, I look at them as as major players in the history of the National Football League. What they've been able to accomplish. That's what I want you to do. See this is this is the thing. I know tonight. You're going to be all in. You're going to be on the couch in by the way, your new beautiful place than written. Your wife will probably be there. But I don't think she's a major player in this all due respect Maria. I don't I don't think she. No, she she she she won't even be there. Okay. Now show me she'll be thinking she might be reading a book on the on the easy chair. Okay. You're not even there. No. All right. The dog will be looking up to you for you know, gratification every once in a while, he'll he'll just wander and wander out. Right. Okay. For the most part. I'll be probably by myself, right? And free. You this is a big day. Right. You woke up today, and I woke up today and said Super Bowl you woke up today and said, hey, it's the Super Bowl. Yeah. I did. I did. And you don't care at all about maroon five no, God could care less or the commercials or the way most people watch the again, this take the eagles out the Super Bowl, which is the event of the the magnitude of it. Hey, let's get our, you know, forty seven closest friends over to all sit on the couch and talk throughout the game and not be able to focus. Yeah. I could never do that. Right. But you're all in short look at this. You know, what I'm going to take a picture this? And I'll I'll it at during the next break you have one two three four five six seven eight stacks of consolidating. No, I'm just sort of shuffling some stuff. Eight stacks of papers notes yellow legal pads highlighted newspaper articles in yellow with a separate red highlighter pen for future. Use three pages of handwritten stuff on a on white stationary not to mention a few copies of the eagles encyclopedias Super Bowl edition for sale right here. Sally, ShopRite combined Ray will sign an autograph for you. Thank you for getting that always always will. You've researched this. Yes, you've broken it down. Oh, I have. Okay. So let's start with this by week is great for me that gives me two weeks to really study this thing. And I've I've studied it got almighty bless your. So I saw with it. I'm not gonna say make me care. But give me the biggest reason why this will be an interesting game tonight. Let's start with that. That's a nita's softball for you right there. If you're into the Xs and os of the game, if you're into the strategy of the game, I think it's I think it is a fascinating. Fascinating match up. I think it's fascinating what the patriots have done. The way they have in a way really reinvented themselves as an offensive football team defensively. The kind of are what they are. But offensively this is a complete reinvention of their team. And I was having a discussion with a guy this week about what the patriots do. And he was talking about the fact that they adjust their of the adjusted their offense over the years in the course of this eighteen nineteen year run with Brady. I said I disagree with you. Reinvented it. I mean, they've changed. They've created. They haven't adjusted an offense. They've created a whole new offense have done it multiple times. And what have done this year the second half of this year? Is. A lot of people would have said you're crazy to do it. But Bella believed in it, and you made it work, and that is just going into the past. I mean, they just went into the old bookshelf. And they pulled out a an old book of offense blew the dust off it and put it down on the desk and said, all right, boys. Here's what we're gonna do old like Tom Brady circa two thousand five no older than that. This is all like bay Pirelli nineteen sixty. I mean, that's this is I mean, they're they're running. Now, they're running twenty one person, and they put in the patriot pant helmets to make it look. They should they should because you look at this offense. Now, it's it's really like it should be black and white footage. You should you should dial. It back to the old days of the AFL swamp through a Plum of a pass a picture of a pass today. Newsreel nobody else. Nobody else does runs twenty one personnel. They run it. Explain what that is. They run it like thirty five percent of the time. Twenty-one personnel is. Two backs in the backfield. And and and one tight end and wide receivers. When I grew up it's old school football. It's two backs in the backfield. I formation lead power running game. And they just pounded at you now. And that's what they've done. I mean, they felt like that's what they had to do. I think it was. It was a mutual decision on the part of the offensive line..

"A Pat Shurmur at five Eli manning at five thirty this afternoon. You know, there are a lot of quarterbacks. Well, there's some quarterbacks who won the Super Bowl more than once. There's the five guys who have done what he lies Don county lie this star. When people wanted to Montana, obviously, Brady Bradshaw. And Eli those are the five guys who have won two SuperBowl MVP's of quarterback. That's it. Those are the five the first four in the hall of fame. He lies the fifth. There are some quarterbacks who won more than one Super Bowl like Rothlisberger. As an example, though, Rothberg is never won an MVP. So if it's so easy. He's never one was matter of fact, he won a game. With the lowest winning quarterback rating in history. His quarterback rating was twenty two point six when they beat Seattle in a game that the only Super Bowl where the officials actually impacted the game. Rosberg had a quota of twenty two point six in that game and won. Plunkett won two Super Bowls. Didn't win the MVP twice. Aikman won three Superbowls. Didn't win the MVP twice. Elway of course, one or twice but only won the MVP once Roger dodger same thing. Roger loss to Super Bowls to Terry Bradshaw. And the Steelers won two Super Bowls against Miami. And Denver won the MVP. Once the other time it was. Was I believe I believe it was Harvey Martin. Harvey Martin Randy white who won the I believe one the coal MVP's that year in the other Super Bowl. I believe they did. And Roger wanted the other year. If I remember, right. I think that was the year. I don't think it was somebody else. Order Dwayne win it I'm trying to think of the twenty four three win in Miami. They give it to Roger they give it to Duane Thomas. I'm trying to remember. You have to look it up for me. Super Bowl twenty four three over Miami. Who wants to MVP? Roger. He'd be Denver twenty seven ten and he'd be the Miami twenty four three. Twenty four three. It was either. Roger was. Was the second time was Harvey Martin and Randy white one game against Denver where they won the MVP. That's what I thought. Yeah. Anyway, that's what I thought one of the other time. Aikman. We know who want him the years he didn't win, but he wants wants. Rosberg won the Super Bowl twice never won the MVP. There are a lot of guys who have won one Super Bowl. Never once who was a lot of prominent quarterbacks who have won one Super Bowl on that list. You put Aaron Rodgers and drew Brees, and we can go down the list name is then so many other guys who won one Super Bowl. And then you have a lot of great quarterbacks would never want any Super Bowls and some who never even got to Super Bowl Dan Fouts on that list. Dan, Marino, losing the one. He went to. Fran tarkenton never winning the Super Bowl, and we can go on and on. We know the great quarterbacks would never want us people. Some of us never got to a Super Bowl. So they come in all different shapes and sizes, but to do both to win two Super Bowls, which is rare then went to will MVP's, which is. Extremely where? Now, two of the three guys. Who have won two von VP's or more. Our big too in the Super Bowl which Montana and Brady star won the two games that he went to. One and two. Terry. Got Super Bowls in these four in the second two Super Bowls. He got the MVP's the first two he didn't the second two. He got the MVP's. He won four, but he got to MVP the second to because if you go through the four Super Bowls in six years, the first who will one with defense the second to one with offense Bradshaw to swan and still all with how they won. Coming up with the big games beating. Dallas thirty five thirty one in the game where Roger made the friends that come back. They let thirty five seventeen Roger put up the two touchdowns late. And then you have the game where he comes from behind nineteen seventeen fourth quarter against the Rams and roemeling. Macy's Rams and wins the MVP that year in the Steelers last Super Bowl win for that group. Thirty one thousand nine hundred Steelers. That were so Terry and his right arm on the back to the defense won the first two he won four. It just shows you how difficult it is to to how difficult it is to win one thing about how great Aaron Rogers has been. They want people. How long drew Brees is career has been Scotland Super Bowl? His brother won two Super Bowls. Second time. We know obviously, he didn't do a whole lot. When he won. Want to Super Bowls? But the one. We did. I'm not sure he won the both packs get a hundred dollars. He get the MVP that they give they give it to him. They give it to the backs because both bags at one hundred yards against the bears. It must've give it to him. They must give it to him. Sometimes I forget who wins the super have you paid. Now the year that he wins it against Chicago. Both get one hundred yards rushing in that game. It was not wanna paintings bet against I think they get paid the MVP. They're not. And then they must've win over the bears. Did they they must have given the MVP? I would think. Yeah. They did. Right. Even though both backs got one hundred yards rushing. I think they did give him the MVP. Right. They did. So he won that one needed him in the second one. So you know, because sometimes I forget who VP usually you think it's the it's it's the back. It's quarterback a lot. But you see here there are times when like Aikman one three and only one at once. Rothberg is one to the first time. My god. He was looking to win second time. He didn't win it. So he's never wanted an s and he's wanting symbols. So I mean, it just shows you how difficult it is to do. And to do it the way he did coming from behind beating the patriots twice beating Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and the patriots twice beating the undefeated story patriot team once and in both games trailing seventeen to nine late in the third quarter of one game trailing twice in the fourth quarter against the undefeated team coming from behind both times. Sunny in Malvern, what's up Sonny? Just as an oppressive Mike or older role games where there are underdogs. Nah. I am mails and naming. Mike if not more than the Super Bowls anyway. Last night's game things like you gotta the game that I ready new one like still playing this week if he has an office of wine, so we still miss the clutch in the fourth quarter. Then you have a feeling it was going to come down to offensive delight. As we honest with you. I don't know what was going to happen. I trust this giant team. I thought the giants will play. Well, I picked him this week. In the picks because I thought they would play. Well, I haven't picked him off in this year. I thought they would win this game. I just thought they would. But all night. I could see I got a little worried in the third quarter because they were really having trouble guarding people. I mean, the past the fence was terrible. They have no pass rush. I mean, none not even looks like a pass rush. They were getting beat up on the running game last night. I mean, you know, they were getting killed running at zone stuff to the outside to nine is what we're just killing them with that stuff last night. I mean, they really were. Time after time. I mean, they ran the ball. Very well last night nine is ran it. Nine is ran it for let's see what they wound up what they ran up with one hundred twenty four. And two fifty passing giants wound up with ninety seven rushing in one eighty now they ran a lot more plays in the giants. Did there sixty eight to the giants fifty five they had the ball for eleven more minutes. Ten minutes of the giants. And ran a bunch more plays. They wait for thirteen on third down. It was very impressive. From that point the quarterback last night. Their quarterback was twenty seven to thirty nine for two fifty. One touchdown to into sets. My prediction was one hundred fifty quarterback reading last week. My prediction was it would be on the seventy five edged under. I predicted. It would be under seventy five or seventy three point seven. So I got it under the gun. And Eli obviously was nineteen thirty one for one eighty eight and three touchdowns. No picks in his game last night. Then in Roselle park was a. Yes. Fanny let me get him up here. Yes, I like cash opinion on what you think of Jim Plunkett being all hall of Famer is careers is career wasn't good enough. The other years he was such a bus in New England. It took them a long time to get to the right place. He had the ability to be a hall of Famer. But his career was not good enough. See eli? For fifteen years. He's he's a top ten in passes in yardage. He's in the top five and touchdown passes. Five six whatever. He is. Plunkett. It took them a long time to get to the right place. Went to New England. It was a bus there with New England. Got got released got picked up went to the found the home of the raiders had a wonderful story run with the raiders. But you know, it was a different career that he didn't put up enough. Great years. Eddie and Rockland was very Mike. How you doing? Aligarh Phil service for one game. Come on, Mike. I listen, I think it's I think Phil's about a passer. I think he's more accurate. I'll tell you right now. I think they were both really good in the big game filled. Played brilliantly in the one Super Bowl. No one ever played better than the one Super Bowl. He played in twenty two or twenty five to seventy one. I mean, couldn't play better. Played great in a big games. I mean to me, it's a it's a flip of a coin. I take my question. I think it's a flip of a coin. You can't tell me your hasn't play. Well in the beginning. He's played great in the beginning. I think he'll play great. I think Phil played great in the beginning. I think Phil was a USB who was a passer. I think Phil was a better pure person than Eli was right? That's why I go by I hard the giants last night. They got they got speed and wide receiver, and they got speed and running back and you see other teams getting the wide receivers in like, soft spots and wide open. And like other caller says you always have to get it right in their hands on the move. And it just seems like he's got to squeeze it into these small targets. They can't drop and they they're getting these. They would be able to if they could run the ball efficiently. And they could get some time the block they would have those openings that. You want them to have? They would have that space that you would want them to have. They don't have it. Because of the fact that everything everything gets moved forward because they don't have the ability to protect people or open the open the running lanes. And even last night again, they did not open a running lanes. Let's be honest. Kid broke a couple of plays. But for the game. What was he seventeen for sixty seven something like that? He was. Twenty four sixty seven so yet eighteen.

Took could've taken a nap on two of his touchdowns on the way in like the first one when do you see a twenty yard run where once he gets to two bills defenders are just swallowed up at point of point of impact, the line of scrimmage, and once Gordon makes it through their which isn't too tough. Just nothing left. Right. So. Yeah. Right. If if those are not touchdown drives. I mean, I don't know if they the one the one he caught his third touchdown for twenty eight three. I believe was a third down pass. I don't know that the others were even on third down. So it was pretty easy. Yeah. Yeah. They have. They did not have a hard time. Really at all this chargers team a good offensive team. But but nothing I mean, the bills got trampled in the first half of this game credit to them. They played a good third quarter. And if the bills had been able mountain much of anything on offense beyond their first possession of the second half. Then you know this. This may have been. We get more of a game. But they couldn't. And so there we are Mike show in the bulldog here on the post game show thirty one twenty chargers bills now Owen to we bought a really be fans. Like here me seriously, like we should all be bracing for this. I think I kind of was to an extent because I want it to be about Allen. And I'm not worried about the results. And I even if I was expecting them to be the worst team in the league, I was expecting him to be a contender for a playoff spot. Like they were last year. But I mean, it's it's gonna be it's gonna be a tough year, man. It's gonna be a tough year. If they don't get it together on defense. It's going to be ugly. They are bad over there. One guy quit in the middle of the game with the sport. In the middle of game left. I'm done. I I don't know man, we've been debating some how good was Josh Allen. I was impressed. Ryan Fitzpatrick was good today in his game. Again, Tampa wins it New Orleans forty eight forty last week today beats Philadelphia twenty seven twenty one. So just so we're caught up rivers. Three touchdown passes. Four incompletions Mahomes for Kansas City five incompletions six touchdown passes. Neither had an interception. Fitzpatrick. Five incompletions one interception. Four touchdowns four hundred two yards against the eagles. And he had four touchdown passes last week. Yes. So good right now in this league is really good. Yeah. Those those are astonishing numbers. Yeah. I just I don't know. I I guess I'm trying to I'm saying I want you to hear me say the bars really low the bar is really embarrassingly low here. And again, like sure we should have met our eyes wide open a known. It was coming. The idea of this team being the worst team. The league is a very real idea to me sitting here right now. And these people have been running it for two years. Well, it's year to year two. The guy they judged as an upgrade. At corner. Quit the sport at halftime. Was inactive in week one. Gave him some gear this week, and he quit. That's not good. It's not a good job. Good job of evaluating. Selecting and character and all I quit. That's a joke. Bills are gonna get made fun of for a variety of reasons. Nathan Peterman is at the top of that list. Now picking Josh Allen. Is there the Hannah guy quit at halftime? I don't know. I probably that's happened at some other point in the NFL at least been around a long time. And it's a violent physically challenging I've been trying to think of an example from memory, and it's not I don't a lot about it. It's not really just right, but Dwayne Thomas remember, Duane Thomas. This is a long time ago. He was running back for Dallas. And he was good in a Super Bowl Super Bowl sex. But he was all he was always very difficult or seen is very difficult. And then he eventually just sort of. He was so irritated by so many things like it just didn't work out. He went to the chargers toward the end of his career. There was a shot of him. Like, he was so anti EU. So counter what the team was about on more than one team. But you have everybody on the field for warm-ups on the chargers as might have been like seventy three or something doing calisthenics. And he's way down at the other end by himself to stand in there. Like that is some guy that's a guy on a list like this. I don't know if he eventually quit or anything Hollywood ended for him. But I mean, I don't know of examples really of guys doing that. And I don't have Davis explaining himself. I don't sort of reluctant to blast off without hearing from him. But I mean, I feel like it's the kind of thing that football players would not respect. And that is how Lorenzo Alexander talked after this game apparently. Let's go to the phones. Again, here is David next. Hello, david. Hi, guys. I think the thing that I'm most discourage about right now is I thought that ownership and finally gotten there right with hiring the right GM and coach, but I'm starting to question. Their ability to judge Taylor. Let me look on all the dead cap money. We have in guys that they brought in here. And then let go Corey Coleman. AJ mccarron. I know they didn't draft Madonna's Washington. But you know, there's like how many players that they just cutting and dead cap money. And even guys they brought in here paying big money to like starla Tula lay. And they brought an injured Trent Murphy they brought in an injured. Monty davis. These guys are contributing nothing and they're eating up like how many tens of millions of dollars of candidates. I I don't I I don't understand. I guess I don't understand what they're doing. Yeah. Well, Jeremy curly's name should come up once. He was cut yesterday. And McDermott said they needed another defensive tackle. Because it was going to be hot. It was hot out. Yeah. I mean, I. I'm. That move. You got me bills. I don't I don't know what you're trying to do there. I don't I don't I don't know. I'm. Befuddled. I am I am. I'm I'm just I can't believe guy quit. The sport at halftime was bad f-. If you're going to do that. Yeah. He made a nice tackle on a play that stopped a charger running back from getting a first down. Well, they want to go out on top athletes. He did he made a nice play. He went out on top. It had to be in the first half. Right. Because he quitted had on on the field was in the first half that that happened. I'm sure of it now. Because he quit playing the sport at halftime. Wow. Let's go to Bill next. I Bill hold on a second. Please sorry about that. Bill now already. Oh, good. Hi, earlier caller in the question of your drinking. I think well, you must have been. Okay. Thanks. Yeah. We thought Josh Allen. I thought Josh Allen was impressive. I'm not speaking for you. So again, the lesson is when someone disagrees with you. They are probably under the influence or there must be some explanation for how they could not think the way you do. That's kind of how it is. So yeah. There does. Thank you Bill. Thanks for calling in holding on Pete is next. Although Pete, hey, good afternoon guys. I agree. Josh Allen was what's impressive today considering his first start one number of it? I haven't heard a lot of people talk about his time of possession. You know last week. We I think the ravens were plus pan on us today. The chargers might have been plus seven. So there's a marginal improvement there. But I'm not gonna mention it because I don't care about it. Okay. Well, another call earlier talked about playing small ball, you know, and and just holding onto the ball because you know, we're giving some of the best quarterbacks in the league, you know, another two possibly three possessions. And if we can start bringing that back little, hey, I don't think a few minutes of time of possession either last week or this week we would have won. But if the best thing we can do for our defense right now is probably just keep them off the field. Well, that means you're good. If you're able to do that. So it would just take. Care of itself. But I don't care about time possession. I care about points. I don't care how long it takes me to score yesterday was very hot. And you know, players are going to talk about like more like you're talking here. How it's all good to do that. But whatever they can make that point. Don't assume they're drunk if they make it I'm assuming that about you or anything of the sort. I just you know, whatever good players like the nineties bills. Right. I don't know. Did they win time of possession? They scored in a hurry. And they beat a lot of people. That's good enough for me. I would take that. I would definitely take that. Yeah. All right. Here's Pete next. Thanks, fellas. Great show as just one ask you the bottom line question. Do we have the infrastructure the coaching the intelligence here to rebuild the team from the bottom? I'm looking at them at my home trade, and you know, it's just frightening. Thank you passed on this kid. They were put down. It's like, it's a steal. We've got you know, look at this. We got a first round pick. It's great next year and everything look where we are just comparative to Mahomes to the quarterback in the rest of the team like better trade McCoy in a tight and trade these guys up now and get something for him. 'cause we're going to end up last last, thanks Ellis. I'm gonna listen to you. I mean infrastructure is a is a is an interesting way to put that Mahomes has the benefit of having his point of entry into the league be on a team that is absolutely loaded with skill position players. I mean, they are stacked. So that's a that's a much cushier gig. You know, but six touchdowns with six touchdowns. I mean, I look I'm there I want I want I wanted to pick him. But while I know. And Furthermore, I don't know how that'd be going. If he if he were their quarterback today playing here he wanted throwing six touchdowns. Watkins and Kelsey and tyreek hill and the whatever else running around the field. Team is loaded with talent. Yeah. I mean, I'll I'll say here is that I liked the it's not the Mahomes street. I don't want to call it that you can I like the trade last year for the bells I thought it was actually Hetty and a good sign for the franchise. Sean McDermott was brand new he hadn't coached a game. There was no GM except for Doug Whaley who was halfway out the door and they traded down in the best player on the team. Arguably or one of them is the player they got seventeen picks later. And you know, they kept tyrod Taylor on the team who was pretty decent. And this. This was something that I liked and they got a first round pick out of it. I'm not big on trading up over and over like the bills have pretty much done since. I don't think that's how it all. And that's I think the overall on this is that they were not setting out in a new direction. They just they wanted. They took that opportunity. And you cannot argue philosophically there about that. So I like that at that moment. Nobody knows about these quarterbacks. It's running talent is a huge point. I think it's seeing the least that Mahomes or any of these guys would struggle more here. This is probably the most struggling location in the league for these quarterbacks at this point, which you know, that's like this is kind of how we're talking today is also it's all on them. Well, that's on them to be the only. Piece. I want to fold into this analysis is if they had done that. Yes. They would not have accumulated extra stuff and would not have Davis white..
