"As possible We're talking to Eddie Murray The Lions draft you in the 7th round in 1980 and in your rookie year you win the NFC scoring title with a 116 points what did you earn the first year Eddie Well I was fortunate to be voted in because at that time players and coaches voted and beat writers would vote so they don't have fan voting for the Pro Bowl So I got voted in as a rookie along with Billy Sims and bubba baker for the lines to go and represent the NFC in the Pro Bowl And ended up becoming the first rookie to be MVP in the Pro Bowl game So that was a great honor for me after such an unbelievable work a year What's the difference between the difference in the adjustment between plan college ball and pro ball Really I think you could ask the same question with everybody It's really the speed of the game And the size of the guys and now it's even greater You know I remember when I was a rookie the biggest guy that we had on our team was bubba baker Bubble was the biggest guy bubble was 6 6 maybe 280 pounds 285 pounds He was singularly the only biggest human that we had on that team Our offensive line was about 200 and average 265 pounds Nowadays you're going to have 15 players over 300 pounds on a team You're going to have maybe 5 of them over three 50 and they all run faster at the sizes that there are now than we did back then I mean so it's the speed of the game These athletes have become so unbelievably big and fast and talented But at my era that was really a common denominator was the speed of the game picking up coverages of your quarterback you know recognizing coverages making the adjustments and all that So speed of the game is different Continuing about athletes When most of us make a mistake it's very tough for us to get over that mistake Athletes have to quickly forget and get over the mistakes How do you do that Well you know you have to you have to I've made mistakes I've missed I'm known for missing the kick in San Francisco in the playoff game That's what I'm known for in Detroit They don't think of all the kicks that I made But I always look at for myself how I evaluated me is what do I do after that kick How do I react after a miss And one of the things I really really work hard at was if I missed the field goal I would not miss the next one I really wanted to not get in somewhat of a rut Did that happen sometimes Yes in the 20 years that I played I think maybe it happened three times where I four times maybe that And I'm guesstimating because I know it was not a lot where I had two or maybe three misses in a row and then I got back on track I was very good at forgetting concentrating on the next one and getting back on track really quickly And it's difficult It really is You have to be a little water on a duck's back kind of thing You got to let these things roll and just go to the next play and get ready for it You know some people have a harder time than others but I know for myself that's what I really concentrated on was to make the next kick We're talking Eddie Murray and over those 19 years he had 527 extra point attempts he made 521 He had 466 field goals attempts He made 352 76% Talk about the heart of an athlete in the part that plays Well that's the one thing you can't test as an athlete You know teams can when they go these players go to the combine They have every test known to man right That these guys go through They're being evaluated pricked and prodded and bench press and standing broad jump and 40s and shuttle that they do all these things But the one thing you can't judge is a man's heart And that's what separates the really good players that have the ability to make a team I know that there have been numerous examples I'm not going to say who they are but there were guys who as an athlete were unbelievably impressive They were either super strong or they were very fast and you would put the really fast guy thinking okay here's a guy who's really fast you can really help us on coverage teams where we put them on kick-off coverage And then you put someone else in there who's maybe you know a couple ten slower than the other guy But then running down and covering kicks that's a different mentality And inevitably the quote unquote slower player was beating the faster guy down the field because the faster guys heart wasn't into going down as fast as you possibly could because he didn't want to get hit as hard So those parameters are very difficult to judge in someone and it really does separate just the really really good players from the guys who just look really really good All right after 12 years with the Lions you move over to the cowboys.

"I'm Jack Priscilla This is anything is possible and we're talking to the director of donor relations for hope network We all know him Eddie Murray the famous kicker In the 80s and early 90s for our Detroit Lions Eddie welcome a real honor to have you Thanks again Jack Great seeing you Thank you for having me You grew up in Victoria British Columbia Talk about your childhood and your mom and your dad please Sure Yeah I was born a Canadian I was actually born in Halifax Nova Scotia which was the east coast naval base for the Canadian navy My father was in the navy He was occurred naval officer for 25 years served in World War II and Korean War But he was English And at that time Canada was part of the Commonwealth of England and so he served under the Canadian flag but he was English when he retired in 1960 He actually moved the family to Portsmouth England So I actually lived in England from 1960 to 1970 and of course growing up from 5 to basically 15 years old playing a lot of soccer and rugby And so that was kind of my influence as far as sports at that point in time And unfortunately my father had passed away shortly before my 15th birthday and my mother wanted to be closer to her family that lived in Canada during her time at grief So we moved to Victoria British Columbia where most of her relatives were at that time So most of my Canadian years were in Victoria And then unfortunately my mother passed away about a month before I went to tulane university in 1976 Eddie what's the biggest thing you learned from mom and what's the biggest thing you learned from dad Mother was a family in love and faith She was a devout Catholic I was brought up Catholic My father was Protestant so my dad would drive my older brother and older sister and my mom and I to church every Sunday and wait for us in the parking lot To pick us up and take us home at that time So her thing was faith and family And my father especially with being a career naval officer like he was it was really respect And just treating others the way you wanted to be treated His big thing was just you know doing the right thing and doing it honorably And those were the kind of traits that I learned from both my mother and father Other than Eddie Murray growing up in Victoria the biggest thing about Victoria British Columbia is Bouchard's gardens that tell us about that unbelievable place Yeah it's stunning I guess the comparison would be the Mayer gardens that they have up in Grand Rapids As a matter of fact a high school friend of mine that in Victoria his daughter is the general manager at Bouchard gardens And because of hope network being based in Grand Rapids I happen to cross paths with the general manager of the Meyer gardens and we were talking I told him where I was from and he goes oh my God you're from where Bouchard gardens is And so I reached out to my friend in Victoria and his daughter sent him an unbelievable package of interesting things about Bouchard gardens It's a world renowned gardens with fountains and hedges and plants and trees and it's just stunning to have something as beautiful of that in one place let alone that it's on Vancouver Island in Victoria British club All right in high school your high school team school didn't have a football team So you graduated and then for a year you worked as a forklift operator in a lumber yard and then you get to tulane university in another great town New Orleans Yes How did you ever get from British Columbia to New Orleans It was really happenstance It was one of those forks in the road Everybody has in their life And this one what really put me on a trajectory for the success that I had because I had no real big ambitions with my sporting life growing up I had a passion for soccer and rugby They were kind of my sports that I grew up with and because of living in England There's more of a passion behind your sport because it's just how soccer is such a religion there So but with that being said when I moved to Canada they still had soccer and they still had rugby in the schools there And you were correct They didn't have football that were in the schools They had football leagues that were sponsored leaks The school systems didn't have the funding to support a football program during my time that I lived in Victoria It has since changed It's gotten better and they do have football programs now but it was 40 years later So at the time we had a construction group and we were just you know pay like a $100 a year and you get to play football and dads would come and coach and all that kind of stuff And what ended up happening I attended a football camp in Vancouver where there was some local colleges that were there And it was run by the British Columbia Lions there We're having this camp And what ended up happening at that camp.

"Are you betting on the tour championship? This We only have 30 guys playing in this this week, you know? Yeah, I gotta look, honestly, I think with everything that's been going on have been distracted between the hockey and basketball on the baseball in the major is the U. S old master's coming up. I was really nto into the last one. So, Yeah, I would think when the majors air around, they'll still be into it. But as football comes back, and now we've got everything, literally everything going on. It's tough, and I was just become tough on by the way. Let me just say because we really did touch on I noticed was last Sunday. But, you know, maybe the two top players in the world right now it does to Johnson and John Graham. I think they all want to if you look at the rankings Made to wave the craziest parts that you will ever see one by D. J to get into a playoff on the 18th hole with Graham and and one by RAHM Toe Win the playoff on the Heath also that I don't know if you saw these means, you know, just absurd. I mean, Especially under the under the pressure. They were other, You know, it's just it's It's ridiculous watching that happened. I got now I saw the one that I think it was the one that forced the plant for the one that one of you. Who was it? It was d. J. D. J. That's the one that forced the playoff run. Wild up winning right. Rob wanted maybe even a better point. He made a plot that was about 65 ft and made about three youth earns its at all. What was the percentage when he took because usually they put up a graphic which I love like a This is a 5%. There was I mean, I did show that, but I would bet it probably was in that 5 to 10% range. That's crazy way was it was crazy. No doubt. Let's go to Rick and Tampa. Hey, Rick. Rick Hour. You It was tough guys. That's what you were talking about month ago. Evan, when it came down to this all the different sports, everything going on, you know, you told me it's a sports you, Toby. I tell you, it And listen to your hope Your team wins because I don't know why Jo do a hate worse the lightning or are the Islanders? So I mean, you got to tell you I'd be rooting for the island is there? I mean, I just I can't. I like him. Hey, Haven't I got a question from the torch in here on the cause there was something about betting Have you looked at the knockout pull yet? I mean, that looks like it's going to be a very interesting week. Because my way got pool. Oh, yeah, we are. Oh, I think we are. I mean, it's all going to be digitalized Lee through the complete Let me already you gotta let me know you were going to be all online, though No more spirit shoots. Okay, the biggest not have the Jets. I will not take the Jets and weak. The big the biggest spread in a weak one. It's actually the Thursday night game, the Kansas City Chiefs against the Houston Taser What's the number of the last ice? Always 10, But I should get an updated number because that was from a while ago. Generally, the defending champion wins that game generally used to always take you always to do that. Yeah, I did. I did. Generally, they do win. I know what the exact numbers are not Giants. As defending champion finally lost in one of those open as I remember that, Yeah, I don't. I don't know what the exact numbers are. You know, right now that number is 9.5. That's the biggest number on the board. The second biggest number on the board is San Francisco at home against the Cardinals Lay in seven. What's the jet line? What did he get? In Buffalo, the jet to getting 6.5. Week. One is always the trickiest in these very and I haven't looked at it yet. Do they play the miners at home? Right? Isn't at the game. We just played eyes going. Yes, San Francisco at home. Think that number is going to look like right now. I mean, I look at the jet schedule. I don't know when they're going to be favored me, sirs, I look at their schedule. I don't know when that's gonna happen where they play after the Niners. They play Indianapolis on the rise right in the on the road on the road. I want that both my men in Denver at home, write home against Arizona. We'll see what type of start the Cardinal's get off. Do they could be favorite in that? Could be you know, Murray, who knows how good he is. That's my point. Yeah, it could be. You go one of two ways with what? That number looks like. Let's go toe, Eric. In plain view. It's up, Eric. Eric. Hey. Last night I had the audio all cued up for you. You believe in miracles? I mean, I've been around a long time 27 years ago when they got to the conference finals last I was in college. I'm pushing 50 now that penalty last night. Was brutal. I'll tell you why there were some sort like roughing interference that subjective. There's kind of two ways to look at it when a player shoots the pocket into the seats or that kind of thing in black and white. It's not up to interpretation. There's no interpretive value here. It's unarguable penalty. There isn't two sides. That's what I thought. That's what I figured. You could say. We'll give you a warning signal right that there isn't two sides a second way to look at this. It's inarguable penalty if you know what I had heard, Eric, You know what I had heard? I'm not saying I buy. I'm not saying goodbye. And that was that. Peter Lonzo Ball fair. Oh, yeah. A monster shot up into the other wagon left Petey Lonzo, No cross no bomb right off. Eddie Murray's It went right over 30, I think was Eddie Murray's number three went off, boy. Hey, settled. That's 1/7 home run of the season. Good family was over him and he chased John means out of the game. What I had heard last night. He's referring to the delay of game that wasn't calling car. I had heard. I forget who tweeted. I think a former goaltender tweeted it that sometimes the officials will just give you a warning And what bothered me about that as well. Wait a second. It's either a penalty or a warning. Why would you get a woman ING You committed an infraction letter of the law. It's a penalty. So it was bogus. It were bogus in that they didn't call it. It wasn't like a fake panel agent didn't call it And does it change the game to the Islanders? When I don't know, I'm not telling you does. Maybe it does. Maybe it doesn't and one power play that they were succeeded on last night outside of that their power play stunk. But he was a goalie interference on the one goal now as well. No, the one that they reviewed? Yes, because it was think it was. I think, actually was Matthew bars Ellen there, right? Yes. I think it was on that It was Brazil. You know, I don't think that was gold interference, either he was, obviously it wasn't They said no. So you know they they upheld it was challenged, which was another Alain Vigneault challenge. What about the old man in his Syriza? Vinny has pulled out every possible stop you could have. He certainly would pulling the goalie in Game one when he's down three. Not that it was eight minutes nine minutes to go in the game. And then the two challenges one which gave the Islanders of power play later. Third period of Game two. And then obviously last night. In these last two cases, it hasn't come back and crushed him. Tell me of this worries you..
Can You Train Yourself to Become Ambidexterous?
"The. World is made up of about ninety percent of right handed people and ten percents, left-handed people folks who are truly ambidextrous, those who use their right and left hand equally well make up a negligible sliver of the population, but is ambidextrous, inherited or learned, and if learned, can it be learned as an adult? We spoke of email with Dr Sebastian. Auckland Berg a professor of psychology at Ruhr University and BOCOM Germany. He said a little bit of both. And this is determined by about twenty five percent, genetic factors and seventy five percent, non genetic factors like environmental influences. It clearly runs families, so it is somewhat inherited, but learning might also affect it I think amdex steady for a specific task. like hitting a tennis ball with the racket is possible, but full embiid extremity for all tasks is unlikely. Handedness being the skill in comfort, a person feels using one hand, or the other is considered a complex genetic trait, and since genes are involved hand, preference develops before a person's even born, but like other complex traits handedness including ambiguity extremity doesn't have a simple pattern of inheritance. Yes there is a greater chance. The children of left-handed parents will also be lefthanded than righties, but remember the chance of being a lefty is just ten percent overall, so most children have lefties are still right handed. An identical twins are more likely than non identical twins to both be either right or left handed, but many of both types do have opposite hand preferences, and that's before we even talk about whether a child's handedness is allowed to develop naturally or whether parents and teachers interfere. Hand dominance typically develops around age three and fully developed by age four to five, but it can be influenced by insisting a child uses their other hand, or by happenstance for example when he was four years old, former major league baseball pitcher Billy Wagner broke his right elbow and spent the summer in a cast. In his memoir Wachner victory recalls being a natural righty at the time and already mad for baseball, but for the next six weeks he threw only left-handed when the cast came off, he was in for a surprise when he tried throwing with his right, the ball went nowhere had lost not a strength of coordination for throwing with his right arm and gained it in his left. Wagner wrote. I was a natural righty then and still am I do everything right handed eat told tools right start lawnmower everything except pitch. Wagner wouldn't be considered ambidextrous though he's certainly managed to have an incredibly successful career working with his non dominant hand. Baseball is full of players who switch hit meaning. They hit equally well from either the left or right side, and are comfortable, facing left or right handed pitchers, some like hall of Famers, Eddie Murray Mickey Mantle and Chipper Jones were successful, but they like. Wagner weren't truly ambidextrous. Which is something? That's very difficult to do, but why the? Lindburg said headedness is something that is generated in the brain, not the hands as such. The half the brain contra lateral to the hand is better in controlling fine motor movements for example, the left brain hemisphere in right handers. The strength of this preference varies between individuals. Some people have a very strong preference for one hand, and resulting from that greater issue in using the other for specific tasks, so it's the brain that sets the barrier. But if the brains, that's the barrier. The brain can also remove it. Take the case of Billy McLaughlin. McLaughlin is an award winning guitarist known for a unique style of play, placing both hands on the Fredbord, Originally predominantly a right handed guitar player, but in the late nineteen nineties despite having a record at number seven on the billboard. He was struggling with control problems. He was missing notes when he played an experienced muscle spasms to the point that he was unable to perform. Finally in two thousand one McLaughlin was diagnosed with focal Dystonia, a movement disorder, causing muscles to contract involuntarily, though advised to find another career McLaughlin opted to teach himself to play left handed and he succeeded. So this begs the question. Can we teach ourselves to become ambidextrous as adults? A two thousand seven study found that as we age, we actually become more ambidextrous without even trying in part because the hands that we use more loses. Its dominance of the study was small. It included sixty participants all strongly right handed according to the Edinburgh handedness inventory, the participants completed various computerized dexterity tests, which included line tracing and aiming task and tapping the youngest group average age, twenty five years performed all the skills proficiently using their right hand, the Middle Age participants average age fifty years performed well using either hand on the gaming task while the two oldest groups average ages, seventy and eighty years performed just as well using either hand on all tasks except one. However overall performance appeared to decline with increasing age especially for the participants dominant hand, leading researchers to believe that quote, we become more ambidextrous as we get older because dominant hand loses its superior dexterity, and becomes more like are weaker hand. Some people have wondered whether attempting to become ambidextrous could strengthen the brain and potentially slow or fight the effects of aging or dementia Allen Berg said that's a myth, while it is true in general that brain training is a good idea when aging research has shown that what at strengthened is what is trained, so if I trained to write with my non dominant hand, this would affect the motor brain areas of the contra lateral half the brain, but not the areas involved in memory. Thus a specific memory training would make more sense in aging and dementia.

They came up through the Indian system that played in one thousand nine hundred eighty one in what would have been double double a Akron Canton. The Akron Canton Indians Aka. The little Indians came up with a guy named Reggie Jefferson idiots fan or mariners fan. I don't know that you remember. Reggie Jefferson probably today trade. I think that he might have actually been part of the trade that brought vizquel to the Cleveland Indians. Imminent feelings for me. Talk about how you bring up. Iran locks right belongs in the hall of fame. I know that you don't like him. But it's not balls likability. It's slow faming and in this case fame with the attachment of fame because you played major league baseball or because you played professional baseball. But if Alex Rodriguez doesn't get drafted by the Seattle Mariners Omar vizquel might not be an expendable piece. That was a big Lou piece to the Indians running..

"eddie murray" Discussed on That's What She Said with Sarah Spain
"And he goes Eddie meeting Eddie Murray. Eddie's gonna hate you. And I said why he goes your head is too big for the rest of your body said what? So I had to go into the bathroom in the bat in the airplane to look at my head against the rest of my body. Which is exceptionally small. We've been over this of my head is not just proportionate to the rest of my body. That's how my beat career began in Baltimore. I can hopefully say it went up from there. But Floyd Raver was right. Eddie Murray to me for about three years. I got through that eventually, but the difference between Baltimore and Dallas was the people in Baltimore love the Orioles. It was the number one game in town that were no ravens over no colts every word. I wrote was prominently placed on the front page as opposed to Dallas where when Tony Dorsett started running wind sprints. My my stories went from page one back to page five. So you were married in eighty three which I think was when you were still at the Rangers hadn't yet switched to the Orioles. What kind of woman marries a man who screams into a wooded area when he's beaten on on the Rangers beat and spends all his time engaged in baseball. What she's rather patient woman as she has to be because anyone anyone who marries a baseball writer is asking for it because our job simply and pay simply was never commensurate with the amount of work and time and effort you put in if you wanna do the beat properly. So my poor wife, Cathy, she she knew immediately because we got back from our honeymoon in in Hawaii, and I got home I repacked, and I was home for literally one hour, and I went to the airport to go to the winter meetings. So she knew right away. All right. The honeymoon is over quite literally and an hour later. He's going out of town, and she's gotten quite used to it since see you had to Sports Illustrated. What were your expectations there? And were you ready to get off the beat or this was just an opportunity that came up? Yeah. I couldn't turn this down. They doubled. My maybe even triple my salary, and it was just a new adventure. And I was scared to death. Because now now I'm a football player. I'm only playing once a week. And if you play once a week, and you stink once a week, you gotta wait another week back, then at least to make up for whereas on the beat if you stink one night, and we all do you can always make up for it tomorrow and right better tomorrow because there's another game. So the pressure that I felt that Sports Illustrated was enormous. I always wondered my good enough to work here. The people who work there were such great writers, so brilliant and certain days I felt like Fred Flintstone working there. But I got through it by just showing up every day. I wrote the weekly column there for eight years wrote a million features. So it was a great great job. But a completely different job. Than the beat writer job because I every word have to be chosen so carefully. Just so no one in there said this guy had a week to write this. And this is what he came on with on. That is that who did you look up to at the time or maybe even right before getting that gig who's writing or whose job did you envy? Well, Dan, Shaughnessy the globe was the baseball writer at the Washington star that who I backed up while he was there. And Dan showed me the ropes fact, Dan introduced me to Earl Weaver for the first time. I think it was nineteen seventy nine we walked on the field together. And Dan goes up too early ver- who's this iconic major league manager and says Earl this is Tim kurkin. He's going to be back me up. He's going to be covering some games this year. And I hope I can say this Earl looked right at me and said you Tim at walked away. So I'm like thirteen years old three foot eleven I almost started to cry. And Dan looks me and says, oh, don't worry..

"Off to look it up, and these trading places is that right? Or is that a romantic comedy was trading places? One is Eddie Murray. Eddy Merckx, right? No, that's not it off to look it up later. But there's a show where basically it's like a wolf of all street type thing where these people are riding high. Futures contracts by buying furs and concentrated, orange, juice futures contracts. Yeah. Trading places. I don't know if I've ever seen this movie. Yes. So that's that's what does. All right. Yeah. Well, my book the show is salvation by Peter Hamilton. I recommended books from his other series and standalone ones before this is his newest one. So this is the first of what I did check said that it was going to be a trilogy. So I've messed that up before. But this one did say, although now now, I'm missing a missing annot. I'm worried I thought I checked I did. So I'll just say series just to be safe. So this is book one of his newest series. I think came out and two thousand eighteen pretty recently. But it is a sci-fi book. It's a little different. I'm having just finished the first book, which it's it's pretty hefty hefty book. I listen to it an audible, which I normally do I look it up. I think it was here. I'm going to tell you number in a minute anyways. But it's a science fiction book. And all crap. I started downloading it wasn't what I wanted to do. No, okay. No. I'm gonna room internet connection. So the dirty locked my screen and that froze mild acidy for a bit. So we're good. So this book is set in multiple kind of time periods. So all in the future all sort of like science fiction, but the they're sort of different timelines being export. So it all sort of like jump back and forth between sort of like a future time line in a pastime line. And I think those a little different than sort of a lot of his other works, and so I kind of enjoyed it. So there's some stuff playing sort of far out some plates of playing I guess there's no past because like I'm not clear what the current is. But the most four time line and the east most back time line are are spread pretty far apart. And it's sort of like a detective thing I didn't feel like it focused as much on some of the sort of technology stuff as he's done before. But I thought it was a pretty good book. It was a little touchy interesting idea. Like, if I guess in one sense, like it's not like a back to the future thing where you're worried about influencing the future because you're just. Reading things that happened. But happening at different times. It's kind of cool. Yeah. So I mean what plays out in? It's like you're seeing the impact of stuff you're like, oh, this is the way the world is and they sort of go to the past and say something like, oh, that's why that's happening. School says it's a trilogy. I did see confirmation. So. Yeah, it says it's the first book in a trilogy. So I did not very cool. But yeah. So, you know, it's hard judging the first book because like it does a lot of world building it setting it up. But you know, if you've read he has other series which are finished and so the Commonwealth saga series. I I enjoyed a lie really liked that one. So I'm hopeful that this series is also going to be good. And I thought this was a solid first outing didn't really grab me. But but I'm hanging in there. I think it's going to be good so cool, and you can eventually you can watch or listen to the whole trilogy. Audible. This is the second one. You says is the first one I one. Okay. And so the the second one will be out what probably next year as a pretty prolific writer. So I would be so this one Kach Senate nineteen hours in two minutes, his longest..

And then when you low the Rams asleep Brady with a quick release and find element for work. Well, hey, I'm sure they're going to have a very balanced attack. In Brady's gonna do a great job of getting the ball out on time. But we'll see what happens, man. That's what Sunday has meant for. All right. Jeff. We know your vocal chords are straining. We appreciate your effort man, Rico Rico on CBD. Jeff. All right. Take care and Tammy Jeff Garcia, man. I was always a fan even before the CBD movement, or if all all truth be told I thought he was pretty good quarterback in the wake of Steve Young. And I never really felt like he got his proper do us all some tough teams went to a couple of pro bowls points, some playoff games that exciting one with the giants have become from behind. It's funny because preschool dad Peter mentioned in that game. Anyway, shout out my boy in oh to I I had to do a story previewing the forty Niners season, and I actually called Montana and young for the chronicle look at you ask is this is I was at the point Garcia was so hot after the season playoff season as a recall. Right. They lost to Green Bay right in the playoffs. Lost season for me wasn't covered. Boy that is a very obscure playoff loss. Great call Murph. It's an Lambeau didn't even happen. I'm not sure there's no documentation we now believe they showed pretty well in that game. Didn't they want to know what this is the best in our history together? I swear to that's the first time this that game has come up on this show. I'm not kidding. One coach you remember the old one playoff laws to lambo wanna pull now see even you know, even you hoax. Did it happen? It's like the guys on the moon Steph curry so that was I'm almost positive. So he went unnoticed Garcia vaguely do I can't remember the game. I vaguely remember losing. We lose that game. How about this Murph? I believe Charlie garner running the rock at that point. He was still running the rock. Owens was our star receiver. Garissa her. No, no, no. This was after Hearst's. Now, this was in the post garrison Hearst air. Good years. Five to fifteen in that game. Even a weird score. They were the five seed and they lost to the seat. Green Bay who then went on and got waxed by the Saint Louis Rams forty five to seventeen. Right. And then that next week the St Louis Rams beat Jeff Garcia is eagles in an incredible game twenty nine twenty four. Wasn't that? I'm sorry. I wasn't a quarterback quarterback in the Bob. But anyway, January thirteenth twenty and then that wound up being the year. The Tom Brady won the SuperBowl. That's how long ago it was that Garcia lost to the Packers playoff game. It was the year that Brady beat the Rams twenty two seventeen wager a little guests here that might be the most obscure forty or playoff game like in modern history. We never talk about that. No. We don't talk about the. We never talk about the eighty three divisional game that they beat the lions it'll handle only because Eddie Murray missed a makeable field goal. A slithered past the lions at home a squirmed out of there. And they should've lost that game. And that's why the Eighty-three NFC championship holding calls look at the curtain a token lifted over the truth comes out the DMZ while it's a problem in my brain. How I still I still harbour guilt. Guilt. Years. I never knew what was behind that. You don't wanna talk your. Wow. Maybe I'll go back and look at the nineteen. I'm not sure how kinks that's not. You know, it happens. That's part of the game. In fact, Mark Moseley missed a bunch of kicks in that NFC championship game two part of the game. You know, do you feel good advancing on a miss kick? Not really. But you know, sometimes you gotta take what you're given. But again that that to me Murphy Eighty-three, we're like old timer. So we can like we're fluent in that. But that one game is not that long ago. Here's what he knows about. Niners. Twenty four lions Twenty-three and Eddie Murphy Eddie Eddie Eddie Murray missed kicks in the fourth quarter, including a forty three yarder with five seconds left that what am beaten Joe Montana and the Niners handles stay at home. The freaking Detroit Lions. Now, you gotta remember. This is our first game our first playoff game after the Super Bowl season 'cause ninety two there was a strike in the Niners went three and six disaster. And then they had their first game. You're right. And they barely wanted. We're for the Niners. I'm probably pushing my luck here, but I'm gonna say with eight ten and six that year in. Eighty-three because they weren't great. It wasn't like the best nine or team. There were good. I'm gonna say you're right, but I act Bowie. Dwight Clark missed that game because of injury dude about that. I remember that either zone for Freddie, Solomon, probably. And of course, the by the way, the and the other divisional gained the Redskins beat the fifty one to seven in that game. So anyway, yes, listen the point being. Yes that Jeff Garcia and I called Montana and young. Oh, yeah. Yeah. And I wanted this, and I look back on history and sometimes history frowns on stories you right? And I kind of wrote a story like this might be the next guy like Montana handed it to young Young's handing it to Garcia. That's tough. Yeah. I mean, he's promising. He looked good. He scrambled. He America's were good food. That's why I feel I always like to give him props. Because a lot of people didn't give him his due. Which is kind of what I said at the beginning of this whole thing. I always felt like was knocked him. We're overlooked him. And he was a good NFL quarterback. Sometimes very good. Yeah. And he he was by the way, one of the last Bill Walsh, guys. Good. Call Bill Walsh. Coming out of he came out of San Jose State Spartan pride in like ninety. What are we got like night? He was born nineteen seventy so he came out like the early nineties. So Bill was kinda done with the Niners. But he was at Stanford. And he was going to rejoin the Niners just to say, but he found Garcia at San Jose State. And he told him to go play in the east west shrine game Garcia wasn't gonna do it. He's like, oh, it's over. And he's like, no, no, no. You have a you have a future and he went to being the MVP of the east west shrine game. Blessing Bill Walsh eye for talent. And listen to this in a one Niners. What twelve and four Paul in which a one that's a hell of a season. Well than for only got him a wild card because the Saint Louis Rams are the greatest show on. What did I just looked it up? They lost to the Cowboys week sixteen before they wrap it up or. Yeah. Week seventeen Inigo twelve and four they win their last game, by the way, garrison her Steve score a touchdown and not bad. Okay. It was all Mondrian range. These numbers next year. It'd be pretty thirty two touchdowns twelve picks. Okay. Take that. Now a QB rating of ninety four. Hello. I got no problem with his average yards per completion. There's average yards per attempt. Seven point. Oh, that's pretty good is and his completion percentage of sixty two. You know what? Jeff Garcia, say let's let's make this right for you revamp just have some CBD oil like gentlemen, we'll we'll talk through for thirty five hundred yards. And then we didn't even get into the rushing yards. No, he he had good feet, man. Actually ran for a hundred fourteen yards that seems like a low number off the whole season that can't be right touchdowns. Did you get in the end zone rushing? I'm not sure it's unclear on this one is a competitor. Man. A lot of fire in his game in that game. He went twenty to thirty two to thirty three one touchdown one pick in lambo in Lambeth. That's not the worst stat line of ever heard here. It is rushing. No, no, I'm sorry. So he rushed for two hundred fifty four yards like it. Paulie, five five tugs. See Jeff Garcia Camby are recognized. Jeff. Tributes segment to Jeff next, Murph. This is good. I'm glad we looked up some numbers because he was he was good way. In that one season. He was thirty one years old guy. Canada member he had to go to Canada from. So he came out of that east west shrine game. And no nobody drafted and you went to Canada just like looking for games who wants to be candidate. I'm on my way, Philly here. He win a didn't. He win a great Cup of their dude. I don't know. I think he did four times CFL all-star. Okay. He wanted Grey Cup. I'm not sure if he did actually. No. But it sounds pretty for the stampede from ninety four to ninety eighth and then under Seidel roll up on stampede or ball. Let's see here. He's duties on the stampede wall of fame. You know what I'm saying? Okay. Along with sid. Good. She Norman Kwong. Let's see here. He was dragged Calgary stampede others. Days deputies went thirteen and five ten at eight and twelve and six this one of my favorite segments of the year on the most outstanding player in the CFO western division. I mean, he led the team to a Grey Cup championship Hamilton. And he was great. Dude, I knew. Thus ends. The most compelling argument. Career ever, by the way, shot up last thing about that all one team, and I forgot so my bad on on garrison Hearst because he was one of my all time favorite forty nine two running backs. I love that guy. I thought he was already gone at that point. But Murph, you know, who else was part of that team. God bless them number ninety seven Bryant young. Yeah. That's all one of my all time favorite too. Yeah. Used to. Yeah. Very good stuff. All right. Well, there you go. You're you're Jeff Garcia.

"What is it two thousand five joke of the ever changed the names and tennis or they just get the play forever now? Eddie Murray gonna play somebody soon. I mean, that's. Let's go. It's unbelievable. It really is. I mean, it really nobody cares about tennis. But that is a story, man. That's a physical game. When I was a kid. Well, not a kid. But does anyone remember Boris Becker at seventeen winning Wimbledon? I mean guys used to come on the scene, and they were young and Atlantic and like they do in all the other sports, right? And somebody bursts on the on the scene at twenty one or twenty two or twenty three or twenty four, and they, you know, they're the next guy and all the sports, and then there's tennis Roger Federer graphing doll joke of it. I mean, come on. Where's the next wave? It's crazy. And it's beyond explanation. And that's all I'll say about it. But give it some thought. How long can a group of player? It's sort of the Brady. Rodgers breeze kind of deal in an individual sport. You know, it's as if as if Tiger Woods still dominating golf with a bunch of guys who were his age. That's what it's like. It's like if tiger was still doing it with three other guys who were also in their forties. Like tiger Mickelson. You know, I don't know who else, but it's crazy that especially in an athletic sport that requires stamina and real good agility like tennis that no one has come that. No, one has come and said, hey old man, you're out. I'm in. It's crazy Mike North Carolina next on the fan. Chris what's up? You know, I hear that. Derek call with the rate is. Sheltie over there aren't getting along the coach. Well. No. If he's all the interested in getting a quarterback in this that I think Cardi is top tier quarterback. I don't think he's in the bottom. Have. I think he's in the top as a quarterback if the giants which go after him say via trade, what would they actually have to give the rate is to get call. Great question. It's a great question. I mean, I do think the giants should absolutely should. Make. This break. But cars deal was just signed. He's a he's not a. Free agent till twenty twenty three. So. I don't know what they what they need back. You know? I don't know what the rate we talked about the Rangers earlier on and I say that in enunciated because now we're talking about the raiders. Breaking it down and starting over again. It sounds like that's what the raiders are doing as well. So it's hard to know how they would. React or what they would want in that situation. But it's an interesting thought you I liked their car. Maybe better than his numbers indicate we should I'm sort of with you on that. Dave and Cape Cod is next on the fan. Dave. What's going on Kristie? I get a quick point on the overtime. Okay. Look at the. Yes, Mahomes didn't get the ball against Grady. But breeze got the ball in that game. Interception and the Rams had it. So I mean, the overtimes the overtime you score. You lose the greatest gaming history. Was that fifty eight Baltimore giant's game. Whether or not that I over time championship game. They scored a touchdown. They want that doesn't make it. Right. I mean, if if it was fair than the team that won the toss would consider kicking simple as that. We'll get at least they changed it from a field goal to touch. That's better. I'm just saying nobody argues that. Okay. But I want to get in on rape play. And again going back. How many great games before replay? Where guy may not the clutch got the ball. And may not even a touchdown right now. We didn't know we didn't know now there's no way of not knowing you can't put the back in the bottle. And like you said, everybody's watching these games. So so it's not like it's a mid Sunday in the middle of the season where there's eight games on the whole planet on it. Yeah. And when you got an isolated play like that one was where it's just a receiver and a defender, then really there's just no I mean, no one can understand. And the league hasn't even tried to understand how they missed the call. They know they've played. I mean, it's a human element. But again, you'll give I mean do you get the coach one flag for one play the game? 'cause I don't want to give him too many because the game's going to stretch out forever. Yeah. It seems it seems to be a very difficult negotiation. Dave between what's fair, and what is. Manageable. And not make the game four hours and twenty two minutes with whining all the time. Because really basically every time you complained about a call your whining is wanting because he didn't get the call. And whether you're right or not isn't as important as the fact is you're whining. Because whether you're right or not your whining, you might be right. Still and they don't want that. They don't want in any sport. Right. They don't. But I've been trying to say this all day they're fundamentally flawed because they insist on making the call on the field which adds a layer that is an unnecessary layer. If you had a steel in baseball. And you had a lighted second base, right? Lit up us flick. The switch and the light went on readies out greenie safe, and you could officiate from above with all the camera angles on second base to make the call. Then you wouldn't have a call on the field. You would just have the guy looking at all the monitors. And maybe it'll take them ten seconds in certain instances where he's gotta look at this one instead of this one because the angle isn't good. And then either turns the light on green or red. And a gay moves on there is no peel. The call went stairs. It was made upstairs to begin with. That's it. It's over. That's where we're headed. I don't know. We're going gonna get there right now, we've got an unnecessary middleman. A guy on the field pretending he knows pretending. He knows better than I do. And he doesn't. So when did they admit that when did they admit that we have a better view than they do? Joe Ithaca my old stomping grounds. Hi, joe. Hey, how are you? Good. I've been playing tennis for thirty five years. I was a high school teacher. I coached at a couple of years, and I'm still having the time of my life. When my sixty playing tennis three times a week, and my best friend is a linesman. So I know little about about the inside of how things work, but I I wouldn't mind catching everybody up on tonight's match because it's really an historic match. And if you're not a dentist fan doesn't make a difference. You're gonna love this match. What are you making? What are you make my point that no one's coming to get these guys? And I mean, if I told you ten years ago that the names would be exactly the same in two thousand nineteen as they weren't twenty nine. You would have told me I was crazy. And yet here we are. Well, I'm gonna tell you the truth. We have four Babe Ruth playing tennis. These guys are such unbelievable athlete Roger Federer who still playing at thirty seven. Novak Djokovic and Robin. The Dow are just the most incredible athletes ever to play. Play tennis and their defensive skills. Especially in the joke. Rich a so far superior to everybody and their commitment to the sports. I mean joke if it's lives on beacon diet skinning bone. Nidal has had things where they kind of inject new cartilage into his knees. So he could keep going and he'd been injured their commitment to what they do is unbelievable Murray. I don't know if you know, this is careers practically over now. Yeah. We finally, yeah. Yeah. He finally gave out but the other thing about Tennessee. This is not completely unprecedented. Pancho Gonzales used to come out of retirement every once in a while he retired when he was thirty two and he come out every couple of years, he became a racecar driver. But when he needed the money, he come back out. He was beating everybody until he was forty one. He got to the semi finals of the US open at forty one. And then at forty three he beat the nineteen year old Jimmy Connors in a big match. So, you know, it's not unprecedented tennis is a funny sport like that you can play it really well for a long time. You can't play it as often and you can't play maybe a five set matches. Well, they said Bill children could take a set from anybody in the world. So he was fifty and John McEnroe hormone number four in the world James Blake when he was right off the chore at the age of thirty five he played macaroni macaroni was fifty five and macaroni beat them at straight-set. Yeah. But the thing about now compared to then is the money is unbelievable. And these guys know they can make it, and they know. They dream about it in all these countries. Plus, it's so much more global than it used to be. And the fact is no one has come out of anywhere to take these jobs. Look at the way Europe is taken hockey jobs. Look at the way Europe has taken basketball jobs. Look at the way Central America has taken baseball jobs. Everything's global it's global now. So no one comes out of any country, anywhere. Come on. No, well, you point the cop fourteen players are from fourteen different countries. There you go. There you go fine. Who do you want who do you like tonight? We're going to end this conversation. We don't have a lot of fans out there. Novak's? My man, I do have by the way, I advance for the for the the overtime. What is it? Every one team gets a two point conversion, and then the other team gets a two point conversion went back and forth until one mix it and the other dozen there you go fast. Yeah. That's the end of the world that would end that would end it fast. That's basically a shootout right now. It's a shootout. That's a shootout given the ball at the three yard line and gopher too. And if you get it very then the other team goes for two same same end of the field. You have to run back and forth and all that. And you just keep going until somebody hiccups. Games over. For that to what we have. Now. I don't love it. But I prefer to what we have. Now. Are we supposed to break here? You look like your fingers on the trigger your ticket sandwich hasn't come.
