Embrace Non Sequiturs and Digressions
"Talk about digressions because I think it's key to good podcasting. Yesterday, again, I have recency bias. So what I heard yesterday, Nathan goes into the Cheetos and the one year old eating the Cheetos. And you say, I could watch a 90 minute movie of the first time you eat Cheetos. She knows are very known on the part of the orange food group, which we consider indispensable to life. And that includes everything that's got orange in it. And I thought, okay, that was a very good digression. And you stopped it after about two minutes, which was about right. Do you have an egg timer like Ben Scalia, the three minute egg timer for give the score of the game? I think I have an egg timer in my head, which is trial and error, right? That you don't want to go, I think you have it exactly right. You can't be afraid of non sequiturs. I think non sequiturs are an important part of Buckeye talk, but man, you better know when to stop. And to stop right, like retire early, right? John Elway, go out on top. Don't hang around. Leave them wanting more. So I think a couple quick non sequiturs in the course of a podcast is great. A 11 minute and 11 minute non sequitur in the middle of a podcast is not as good. So I do think you just have to be a what you really have to be aware at all times. I don't want to plan. I don't want to overplay on the podcast, but you have to be aware at all times. Maybe you don't have to put the directions in your iPhone, but man, when you're out on the road, you've got to be looking in your mirror constantly. So I feel like I'm looking in the mirrors, but then sometimes I'm a back road guy, Hugh, my wife doesn't like it, but I want to go on the back roads. I want to get lost out in the Woods sometimes. I don't want to take the straightest path from a to B but you don't want to get lost for three hours. So I think that's how I podcast as well. Does misses la Marie's love sports or does she know that that's your job and you're calling in your career? No, she knows because she's downstairs and I'm on the second floor and she gets about 86% of what I podcast through the door. So I'll be like, oh yeah, I was talking about this and she's like, I know. I heard it. So yeah, when you're in the same house as the podcaster, you know exactly what's up.

Joe Sakic Wins the 2022 NHL 'GM of the Year' Award
"Joe sakic Wednesday NHL GM executive of the year award and so deserving and again, it's a regular season award that was voted on, but boy, it would have looked kind of silly to have given it to somebody else after you saw the way the avalanche went out and won the cup. In large parts of the moves he made, man. He pushed every button and hey, we've been pretty lucky here in this town to watch. Guys that were great athletes championship athletes also kind of show their chops as an executive. First John Elway and now, Joe sack, yeah, and that's pretty rare. Isn't it? To have a guy who's awesome on the ice or on the field, be able to spot talent and have and have a knack for putting a team together and understanding the levers to pull in the buttons to push, 'cause a lot of guys man, a lot of guys are just instinctively so good and they can't explain why and they can't put it together and I know some will accuse John Elway of having a little bit of that later in his career, but he brought us another Super Bowl as an executive and Joe sacking, this award much deserved to me, you look at Jared bednar and that's Jared bednar is just a reflection of Joe sakic's approach and just trusting him to get his team on the right track. A guy who was not well known and gave him the reins and so much deserved a joke sacking and let's go get another

"I'm really trying to save this poll question for tomorrow guys. Because i liked the vic fangio stuff. We're talking about today. But you're you're forcing my hand here. Zak stevens will. Maybe he can better put this whole thing into perspective for zak stevens of dnv. Our broncos zach before we get into two in oh teddy bridgewater bradley chubb all that fun stuff. My whole agains are wanting a debate. Here peyton manning or john elway. Why is that what what happened over the weekend. Oh brady i mean that. That's really the sexiest thing to talk about. Because how. how great was it. When the broncos were able to bring back payton or john elway into the organization back in two thousand eleven. How exciting was that. And then what he did after that and it was just so cool for the organization to have a hall of fame quarterback run their team and now the prospect of getting another hall of fame quarterback to be a part of the team for the next multiple. Decades is so exciting. And that's what's going on. Between john elway and peyton manning and brady unsurprisingly they want a piece of the denver broncos both of them do and now neither have been combined. The team outright. Because it's only a couple of billion dollars more than either of those guys have but if an ownership group is formed both of these guys want to be in on one and maybe the figurehead to that And so that's going to add a whole nother wrinkle to this ownership stuff and with with when it comes to the broncos being sold. They're not going to be put for sale until after the season but come on. Let's not be naive here. You know that there's talks going on about okay. Let's form some groups so we're ready the broncos i. It's pretty clear by now that this is not going to stay in brittany bowling It it's not going to stay in the bowl and family. It's going to be sold so now the these talks are being talked about and brady if you could be the figurehead of a group to own the broncos. Why would you not. Yeah no exactly. It's an appealing thing. It's one of not just for broncos fans but one of the most appealing jobs or situations. I should say throughout the country..

"But they were not great offensive teams, and I think anybody who has followed the Broncos even if you don't live in Denver, but followed. The Broncos would say that the three Super Bowl Teams that John was the quarterback of before Mike Shanahan got here. I mean, one of the biggest reasons they got to the Super Bowl, not the only reason But one of the biggest reasons was John's ability to at key times come up with plays that enabled that team to win and all you have to do is think back to the drive game in Cleveland. Right. I mean, that's a 98.5 yard drive to send the game into overtime there, you know, he made a bunch of place, so I I would I understand your point about statistically. I mean, if you look at statistics, only you would say Joe Nameth is not a great quarterback, either. He's in the Hall of Fame, and he's got more interceptions that he does touchdown passes, so there's more to it than just statist statistics. But in my opinion, John would be at the very least the top 10 quarterback, and I think you could make the case. I mean, give me give me Dave. I'd say Top five. Give me four quarterbacks. That you think we're greater players in the NFL than John Uh uh, So Joe Montana. The guy Greenberg currently Was there? Sure. You look just come instantly to mind. I mean, I wouldn't take far How many championships Two Farve win. What one again. He willed himself to Victory over and over and over. I agree. I agree with it. I Yeah, No, I I don't disagree with that. And I agree with you there, Dave. Thanks for the call. It's kind of a fun conversation because it's totally Subjective, right? I mean, it's um You know, and the game has changed so much, even since John Elway played When you look at John stats compared to today, with all the changes in the National Football League and the way they throw the ball around, and where, where, Uh, You know, Defenses. Defensive backs can't touch wide receivers anymore. It's it's a different game. Elway had 300 touchdowns. 226 interceptions completion percentage 56.9. In today's game, 56.9. You're not going to be around very long at all the different game. It's a whole different game. He had 33 rushing touchdowns in his career. And almost 3500 yards. Russian You know, so he was a complete football player. And I think John Elway when it comes to just pure talent. I think it's pretty hard to beat him. To me. He's the top is the top five quarterback of any era. I mean, you would have to put Brady in there. I mean, my homes is going to be in there eventually, even though he's still a pup. But Montana would be in there. Peyton would be in their Elway would be in there. And there have been some other great ones. I mean again. Terry Bradshaw doesn't You know, I mean, Terry doesn't get a lot of credit. Uh, For what he did. I mean, the Steelers were great on defense. But I mean, Terry made that thing run. Roger. You think Roger's ends up on the top five all time Aaron Rodgers in the discussion. I think I think he's probably going to win another championship. But but I mean, in terms of talent that that guy makes throws I've never seen anybody else make. I mean, maybe Mahomes. But he's got such a unique delivery style. And he's refined it. I mean, that dude is a straight up baller. Yep. You know they've been great ones, and there's so many great quarterbacks over a long period of time era Aras matter. Back in the seventies and eighties. These guys weren't throwing the ball nearly as much as they throw today, so that so the numbers are gonna be skewed in favor of some of these players that are playing in today's game. 9 55 is our time will continue to chop it up three or 37138585, by the way. Correction Tom Brady is 15. Super Bowl MVPs. Um, the other two years. And by the way, he so it was not Malcolm Butler, who won the MVP of that year. It was Julian Edelman. And then in 2000 and five it was Dion Branch, the slot receiver you were trying to think of not the late David Patten Stick around news. Next on K Away. Is it time for a new heating and cooling.

Do you know what those gentlemen all have in common. I think i'd do. Can i take john elway for five hundred erin. John elway brought them into the organization mr. Qb i mean. Imagine if i was the hotshot radios and i said you know. Vj's off tonight. i'm gonna bring in a co host and bring somebody that can't even speak the language or never watched sports. I mean. I don't know if that's the exact equivalent. But you're a an iconic quarterback. You can't find anybody. That's even a half competent. And what's so interesting to me. How different is his reign and is his regime. Looked at if peyton manning doesn't fall into his lap you know and that's something that i was just talking to producer rob about this before the show. You know producer. Rob and i were talking is last week with tim. Tebow and we don't need to relitigate. Tim tebow would that whole situation. But if you remember. They make the playoffs that year. They beat the pittsburgh steelers. Tim tebow went into that off season. As the starting quarterback of the denver broncos and john elway was on the record saying he is our guy. If peyton manning one of the two or three most gifted quarterbacks in the history of the sport does not fall into his lap. What is john. Elway's record as a as a general manager and executive. Vp of the denver broncos looks like peyton manning covered up a lot of awards for this guy so you know whatever. He's an iconic player. But you talk about general manager and specifically evaluating the quarterback position. It doesn't get much worse. Listen listen even just go back to the pay and then you you're right. He covered a lot awards but only did before year. That second year with the deep the defense ones that super bowl and holds cam newton a fifteen and one carolina panther team with the nfl vp. On it you know. They won that game. I causes turnovers. That offense mustard a robust one. Hundred and eighty four yards in. The super. Bowl led by peyton manning. So you're right i i. It's not even about being lucky. He fall he fell in your lap. You're taking your lucky stars and blessed that he fell in your lap other than that. He's over everything. Let's just say that he's all for everything. As far as a quarterback those names do case keenum brock. Osweiler like are you kidding me. And and just with elway what it feels like erin is that he instead of just building a great franchise. He's almost sadistically. Like gotta get a quarterback. Because i was no build a franchise. You don't see lynn. San francisco going after safety after safety after safety. He's drafted safeties. They've exactly he's building a franchise. That's what you gotta do in elway for it. Just feels like he's looking for debt. Qb when you let a lot of guys we could probably say teddy be fell into his lap. They wanted to try to do to. Aaron rodgers deal.

"The tough one. It's really difficult. Like i said the guy the more fun entertaining guy to watch on the field. Was john elway. Yeah but it's hard to argue with all of manning's accolades is five. Mvp's and he did it for a long period of time. I mean his first. Mvp was two thousand three. His last one was two hundred thirteen. That's pretty phenomenal to me. And i can't say let's let's wait and see how it turns out. You cannot say because they're both done date. I mean we could say who's going to have the post career we could say. Let's see but yeah look at the yard discrepancy. Though manning threw for seventy one thousand nine hundred forty yards elway threw for fifty one thousand but again different times completely different times. Cornerback play was a lot rougher in the nineties than it is now and how many seasons elway play away played for sixteen seasons manning for eighteen. Okay so that's really big discrepancy. Yeah the rushing yards really helps away out because i almost got three thousand more yards than manning three hundred touchdowns for elway two hundred and twenty six interceptions thirty three rushing touchdowns though manning at five hundred thirty one touchdowns but again you gotta at least give him. The it was a different era. All right think about it. You don't have to answer drinking. We've got a good debate. Going looks like always the show here. go vote at the whole show dot com twenty three minutes after the hour mark.

Chicago-area worker fighting for minimum wage raise for all
"Negotiations on the latest code nineteen relief bill are underway in congress but a key democratic priority is in question president. Joe biden had initially pushed for proposal in the bill that would raise the federal minimum wage to fifteen dollars by the year. Twenty twenty-five no matter what happens at the federal level chicago goes to fifteen dollars this summer while illinois is on a path to fifteen dollars by the year twenty twenty-five earlier this week. Parachutes had a conversation with rob car president of the illinois retail merchants association and adriana alvarez mcdonald's employees and a leader in the chicago chapter of for fifteen. He began by asking alvarez. What's important to her to continue pushing at the national level. Despite illinois's hike being done deal you know. I do believe that this is Everyone's fight I'm not the only one struggling here in illinois you know There's a bunch of people out there struggling So i believe that the federal the federal minimum wage should go up to livable wage of fifteen dollars. An hour rob car. You represent businesses illinois. What are you hearing from your members about the most recent hike in illinois and in chicago again expected to go to fifteen dollars this summer struggling great word for it. There's a lot of employers for struggling as well which is why we historic on them. State as a result of the pandemic. It's going to impose. I think for us for for washington. Elways cautionary tale in that. You don't want to do this and you want to think twice about doing all certain epic because it makes components I what about that. The nonpartisan congressional budget office put out a study this month saying that raising the minimum wage to fifteen dollars an hour. It would live nearly a million people out of poverty but it could also lead to the loss of one point four million jobs. Could it actually hurt workers instead of help in my opinion i don't think so The more money. I have in my pocket. I'll be able to go to these small mom and pop shops that i have by my house. I don't have to make the trip to you know those big corporations that Have the deals So i'm not going to be saving any kind of money. I'm going to be spending it right back into the economy rob car if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation over. The last several decades really hasn't gone up at all in fact it's gone down. Should the minimum wage at least keep up with inflation. Well i think the calculation depends on where you start. Become finished from sixty eight has been chosen by the advocates rather randomly choose from other years so different story. But no you don't wanna have wage on automatic increments. Sales are not automatic increase for example. When i when you talk about the retail sector. I represent It's been horrible policy. The state of illinois to continuous minimum wage increases in the midst of this pandemic when she would have something automatic on like that so that would be a terrible approach. What about that Again Rob is saying there shouldn't be automatic raises but if you look at the minimum wage adjusted for inflation It really hasn't moved at all. And then we're talking about fifty years since. Yeah it's it's been you know. The federal minimum wage has been stuck since two thousand nine. And i mean everything else has gone up We have to work two three jobs just to you know by essential stuff and i honestly don't think that that's that's right And seventy five is not enough

I wanted to ask you about your guy Tom Brady winning the Super Bowl number seven. And I mean, listen, by the way, Stevens were doing all these film breakdowns. If you find 1/6 round quarterback that you think will fit for the Broncos, By all means, you know, let us know If there's a guy out there that can have the same kind of career path. I think they would help the Broncos out what I hear the hate coming out, man you get you think it's easy, E. I was ready for Tampa Bay. I was rooting for shack Bear and I was rooting for my guys. Mason and James, go is so who do you better? You know, I had to buy that. Let's just put it that way. I see. Yeah, I bet. Okay, see, but that doesn't really matter. If you were really sound like until you feel about a question us. Hmm. What's important? What's important here? Is that your guy, Tom Brady one another championship. What did you think about right now? Mm. That one. Not two. Not just go DJ calendar on me. I think he did. Oh, my goodness Missing there was him screaming DJ Kallen down. All right, Steve, tell me about your before we lose this thing. What? What did you think about the Super Bowl man? You know what? It was really a great game. Uh, a great defense of game, especially by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Um Yes, they couldn't get anything going and I've seen this play out and I was telling you while we're watching the game with here, that it kind of reminded me of wind We were in the Super Bowl operas you get Green Bay Packers, Nobody gave wasn't chance. Yeah, like my life the same way they think they have it down there. You know, nobody's given the greatest quarterback. To play this game. I thought of my quarterback John Elway. Uh, The greatest quarterback to play the game. Nobody's giving him cracking. You do that. I can use that, like he's not on the field. Right? You say it all. The most important decision on the field is the quarterback. And you got the greatest one out there. What you thought was my home. Well in fairness. In fairness, Patrick Mahomes has done some pretty special things. He did some special things in that game, but just didn't quite work out. He's awesome, but he hasn't made it to Tom Brady status. Shit, man. You saw one of my line man. He looked like a little kid man he was given but work. So that brings me to a very important question. Something that I posed by tonight. We're doing this again. Didn't he brought it up? He brought it up. All right, Steve. So this is the deal. So I I put out there The fact that we've had examples in recent memory Cam Newton was the one that I brought up. We've had examples in recent memory off quarterbacks taking a step back. After a tough Super Bowl loss, especially against an elite defense more pressures than any other quarterback in the history of the NFL. And listen. It was a tough day at the office for Patrick Mahomes. I said it wouldn't surprise me if Patrick Mahomes had a bit bit of Ah, ah little bit of a known us step back. Seems kind of strong. Maybe a little bit of a hangover after this. What do you think? Well, it's possible. They had him Officer Lyman that were her correct. Yes. In fact, they started Mike Rivers known Super Bowl liability at right tackle. Yeah. No, I mean I'm a realist too Well, you know possible homes. I've seen him play all year, So he's probably best quarterback in the game right now. But all the time. Tom Brady is the best. And you know Canon City they had They had some issues, man. They couldn't get going offensively of the amazing defensive game plan, Andre That's what happens when everything works out right for you, you know? And I I could imagine that Tom Brady gonna greatest quarter dead greatest quarterback ever with sudden these guys, they look, man, all the pressures on them. We don't have any pressure. Nobody's picking up the win. Well, I'm not gonna be anybody but Majority. The people were stating the case. Any team coming in and just blow out of Tampa Bay Buccaneers and I've been in a locked room. They were like, man. Hey, we're gonna destroy these guys that got him that much more height. And they get set up, man and again at office of line. They had some issues there. On my home didn't have the time that he normally have and go ahead. And, uh, you know, but right is trying to float this theory that Holmes is going to have some kind of Cam Newton like fall off after the Super Bowl because he lost wayward boys.

Okay, so and here's Tom Brady obliterating all the norms and all the records and all the longevity Z and all the Super Bowl standards. And then there's guys like me. That I'm still in the foxhole, saying I'm taking 16. Uh, where are you? Montana versus Brady. Or am I forgetting an Elway or somebody in between is Brady ended the argument. Greatest of all time, or do you view it through a different lens? Yeah, I've got a little bit different because the game's not same game. I'm not playing the game that Montana and that way played and right now weigh in. Montana didn't play the game that Johnny United's played and you know, and you keep people on going back now. So this is an era Now where? You know you don't really touch the quarterback occasionally must somebody falls on him And they? You know, somebody has a bird, because oh, my goodness. He actually him e mean, when we started when Joe started in the league. You know what you know, we started. There was still some of the old rules like you know how tough is that guy? Because he's a great talent. But after we keep shot him five times, and there are no flag, we'll see how tough he is. And that was the case with quarterbacks. He just You literally just beat the piss out of them and see if they can handle it. Yeah. Yeah, and so you know, And you know, I can remember games I can remember games and say, Look, you gotta get even have to take a flag. You get to that guy. S o. You know, I can remember Buffalo had Joe Ferguson and the guy had an arm like bread far arm. He could throw a ball like unbelievable after you whacked him a few times. Didn't kind of go where we're supposed to go, You know? Yeah, and that Z. That's the way it is. And so, so it's different for Joe than this for for Brady, and it's different. It'll be different in the future. I mean, who knows where these were the game's going, But suffice it to say that it's It's not the same game that was played 40 years ago. 50 years ago. If you go back even further, it was kind of barbaric. But now it is. Just think about it. The standard I mean, listen, that's a phenomenal answer. We've got to cut that and save that cause that's a well described yet yet there was just a Physical intimidation that went on during the course of the game in the season, and it changed everything. And just a little bit on Joe, though, having been there for his when really, he might have been at his best Those years you played with him, right? 80 million man, forget it. Yeah, He was phenomenal. He was Yeah, and showed Children's Children all the little things Don't look, here's the thing that I appreciate with all these guys, you talk about United. You can talk about. Montana. You can talk about the youngster. You can talk about Brady for Holmes has it? Um, yeah, some of them. There's a slew of guys who've come through right? And, um They all have. The warm main thing they have is and I don't know how to design it. They know how to win. Winning's the most important trait you can have. At one point My personally myself If I had to choose one quarterback from the time that I've been watching football and played it to now, so so let's just say in the last 50 years if I had to choose one guy That guy would be John Elway. And there was a plane time when it didn't look like John to the outside people. It didn't look like John knew how to win problem wasn't John Elway? John L. They knew how to win. Literally, and I'm telling you this That team that he played with the Denver Broncos until the and when he had help. It was the on Lee guy. They had nobody. I mean, you played Denver, You played the Denver Elway's. That's all they had. And that guy was back. I was phenomenal, and he took a beating. I mean, We beat the living. Piss out of that. I A, uh, keep on getting up. I remember. I remember We played me Denver one year and finally I think I got a hit on him, and he went out doing out with I think we've got his kidneys or something. I can't remember rib kidneys or liver or something. One of those working some organ to work. Yeah, and that was John goes out and then game over. Yeah, and even San Francisco. They had the Super Bowl in 90. He was there. He was only had that when he got the runner. And then they had a couple of receivers outside your defense is a little better. And John won two Super Bowls. And John wasn't is good. Then, as he was in his prime, so Anyway, There's a lot of guys out there, but the game has changed and the rules have changed and the way you play, the game has changed, and it's kind of it's really tough to bring that it and because Some guys were just mentally tougher than others. Now. I think Brady could survived in that. In that league, the protections would have been a little bit different. And but he'd get rid of the ball. He's be smart. He sees things fast. And they all have that. And so it'll be interesting to watch this one. Awesome. We didn't get a quick take on my homes from you mad just get you know he's sort of getting lost in the Brady love here. We're all focusing on Brady going to his 10th Super Bowl. This kid's going to a second at age 25. No. If he slays Brady on the big stage, we're talking about a feather in the cap, huh?.
Why 10 Super Bowl Appearances Won't Satisfy Tom Brady
"Hey thanks for joining me man. Good to be here. Seth wicker sham is a senior writer at espn and he's covered. Tom brady since his rookie year in the nfl. Words with you. Seth you are. Espn's resident. tom. Brady you've been covering brady for nearly twenty years. I believe at this point. You're the first person to report. That brady was looking for a way out of new england back when that was on thinkable and honestly kind of dangerous to suggest in the boston area. But your piece out. Today ahead of. Tom brady's tenth super bowl in tampa bay with the buccaneers. It actually begins a decade ago back in new england. What happened a couple years ago. I was in tom. Brady's house and we were in his living room and he was telling a funny story about bill belichick. It was a saturday morning meeting before a game against new york. Jets and bella. Check was watching film of mark sanchez. Running out of the pocket rolling to his right players it is heels and he had a wide open receiver about sixty yards downfield on the opposite hash. So that's an almost impossible. Throw to attempt. I mean few quarterbacks ever would try that throw even fewer would complete it and the way that brady told it to me. That ballot check was just watching the play unfold and he was like just throw it. He's wide open. Why isn't sanchez. Throwing the ball and brady's little thought bubble was hilarious because he was thinking. I would never even attempt that throw. Do you have any idea how i would look in. Tried to throw that ball. And meanwhile checks just like can't get even more open. He can't get more open. Just throw it in. The way that brady explained to me later was very interesting because he said i see each play within my limits at the time. I didn't really see the significance in that statement. But when you watch. Tom brady now aged forty three years old and the entire sporting world asking how. He's done it how he's been able to get another team to the super bowl. I looked back at that statement. And i found a lot of answers in it was brady frustrated with ballot check. Invalid check suggested as much. I wanna get deeper into. Brady's thought bubble there. I think he thought it was hilarious. He he saw it as a defensive coach who had no bearing on the reality of how difficulties throw that ball. He wasn't frustrated with ballot check. He was like a little amazed that bella check thought that that type of pass would be so easy i mean. That's that's a john elway throw. That's josh allen throw mahomes through. There's very few people who could ever even try that and here. Ballot check was talking about mark sanchez. Saying he's not going to get more open than that. Just throw the ball. As kind of an indictment on the quarterback where brady saw it as you know something that was hard to believe. Couldn't believe that that his coach thought that a throw like that with that easy. And when you look at tom brady look at the arc of his career. He's someone who's kind of always understood his limits and by understanding them so well he's found a way to transcend them so those limits that he has this keen understanding of and that being this superpower. It is something that we can. Plainly see in contrast to josh allen and john elway and patrick mahomes and lamar jackson. These absurd physical talents. And that's been clear set ever since we saw brady with shirt off to be honest at the combine in two thousand but because he is also the greatest of all time without real serious dispute at this point playing more super bowls than anyone ever by far at to ask if you fully buy his explanation that that superpower is in fact and understanding of his own limitations. At first i didn't. And i remember. I was once in his house in two thousand thirteen back when we thought he was getting old. 'cause he was going to be thirty seven when the season started. And you know he can't play forever and he said something really interesting. He said there's nothing that will be able to replace football. And hopefully it gets to appoint where there is when i retire in nine ten years and he said it so offhandedly and so smooth that it was it went right over my head. It was a shot across the bow. Here was a declaration to play until he was aged forty five and he someone who has made a mockery of conventional wisdom. And so i thought there is no way when he said that that he was someone who learned how to play football within the scope of his own limitations. But as you watch him play you actually see it on the field. And i think that it helps define him as a football player because he can't do what aaron rodgers does. He can't do it. Patrick mahomes does these sort of amazing acrobatic throws but what he can do and what he's always been able to do is pick apart a defense and bleed teams to death. And i think that that's what he was getting at when he talks about playing within his own limits because he's so deadly an accurate when he throws short.

"Which is interesting, because Brad Holmes, who is their new GM, their eyes from the Rams, she worked with the ranch for years and years and years and years and years and years and years, even go back to the ST Louis days, guys been around that organization forever. So he's been obviously very involved in the golf deal when he checked off back. They also brought in John Dorsey over the weekend. Who's got his fingerprints all over. Certainly what is going on in Cleveland, and he got iced right away there with the flying J. Jimmy has limb and also Kansas City's roster. Beach to a lot of great things getting the homes but a lot of the people on the chief's roster that air dominating right now John Dorsey drafted there, so I don't know what his role is there, but we'll get into it. But in any circumstance, John, I wholeheartedly disagree with you. I'm not trading Nick Bosa. Otherwise I'm gonna go out and get another Nick both. So where do I get a neck? Bosa Quarterbacks. You got to be on the market to some degree artist. Hang with Garoppolo went on to a damn thing. I'm not trading Nick Bosa. I'm not trading Fred Warner, and I'm not trading George Kettle. They are nonstarters. For May. I'd give up more draft picks. I would you. No, It's not like the NBA with salaries have to match you don't have to do that. I'm not giving up any of those three. Anybody else on the roster we can engage in conversation with unless I signed Trent Williams back then I'm not trading him either. But anybody else besides those three and that those three to me or completely untouchable? I'm not trading that. The only reason I said it is because how many times I can't really think of it. Can you get a quarterback of the age of 25? As good as he is, He's your quarterback for the next 10 years. You don't have to worry about the position and he is hate the word, but we use it all the time. He is elite. He is one of the top five quarterbacks in this game. And he can run it. He can throw it. He can win a shoot out for you for the top five most efficient offense is where the final four You gotta score points. I love Nick BOS I love Fred Warner. But if I give up one of those guys, I think I can find a linebacker easier than the Sean John Watson. I think I can find a pass rusher and he's elite elite elite elite. He might be a Hall of Famer. But the Sean Watson's a Hall of Famer the most important position you can have. I don't agree with that. I think George Kettles a better football player than to Shawn, Watch the Knick. Bos is a better football player. That is Shawn Watson. Fred Warner's a better football player than short. If you weigh the position, you think that I understand what you're saying, but I'm not gonna do it some other way. And you mentioned you know young quarterbacks. They don't become available because you have a franchise tag on the franchise tag. Really. What it was put in for was to protect Pat Bowlen, which John Elway it's called The John Elway will really On to your point. This scenario came up with L Davis years ago, and it always bring up You know, I got job, Rose. L wouldn't give me Elway. You know when Elway pulled the power play With the Earth's A's and where they babies still in Baltimore, then they're involved. It was a long time our calls, and they got Christian in a state of the art left tackle and some of the draft picks, But Elway so I was in that train. Oh, John Elway is a raider. You know much what? He loved that and he brought it up. I could have had Elway could handle way. Hit the documentary, Right. Welcome into something he never mentioned to me ever ever was that Holly long had to go on the trade. And he had never brought that up. But the way it was presented by some agents that were involved in an Elway's agent. Is that al wouldn't trade Howie Long and I could see were now going back on it Should he have Maybe. Maybe not. Elway didn't went to late in his career. How he was ah, centerpiece of a great defense that one of the championship right away, So maybe that's debatable. But you just You can't do it. It breaks your heart and I would put Bosa In that same category. You know, maybe time would say you could should have done that. I would not do that. I don't think of the same team. You no longer have the gold rush. He's a guy you drafted number two. Overall, You developed him. I don't care that he's sorry He's going to come back. They come back off a CL so I just wouldn't do it. I go get somebody else. And right now I'm gonna love watching is gonna be available. You know, Matthew Stafford's the guy. We'll talk to the day Burkett from the Detroit Free Press about you know what you have to give up to get him, But I I don't agree with that. I would not trade Bosa. I would not Trade Warner. I would not trade Kittle. It does not mean you can't put a package together to get watching. Other teams will probably give up more. You get him? I just would not trade any of those of even if you did it. You know what if he did it straight up? No, that we could have a discussion. If I don't have to give you three extra draft picks or two extra draft picks, it would not be Bosa. The other one's possibly if that's it. If it's just a one on one trade player for player, I still would be reluctant to do that. I don't know, you know, but they're not gonna do that. They're gonna wind up getting a lot more in return than just a player for player trade. All right. Like you said, We'll talk about the Matthew Stafford situation that could be realistic. David Birkett from the free Press. In Detroit. As you said, he's written a list about it, and we'll get the inside on why they came to a mutual decision to trade Matthew Stafford the offseason we'll do it next. Only here on the SportsCenter..

"No that's a terrible deal. I think is going to going to turn it around. And i think we're better off staying the course. That's that's my. That's my concern is just gotta take took me back a bit to senses. Only worth two pennies. It's true. isn't that the whole point. Very true. And i think in a fairly just said he's his opinion basically doesn't matter says decision but put yourself in a position. Okay this doesn't care this guy okay. He's getting his paycheck. he's happy. I have no stress anymore in my life getting that paycheck to just be a somewhat figured for the organization. Yeah they can run a by me. And i'm not gonna. I'll say what i think. But they can do whatever can ego. You'll always still has that ego. If he had nego he'd still be trying to hang it out here man. Cnn may argue with you. Say it was his ego. That made this decision. So he doesn't have to be the fall guy now he has a guy that can take the blame and he doesn't have to answer the question. Because always i'll tell you you you laugh. Tell colfax elway's never going to have to do what these press conferences again. George payton's doing them always never going to have to stand up and say. Hey no we're evaluating the end of the year his to do that he is. Joe ellis now because you barely see. Joe you see joel is way less than you. John elway so now it's not elway. It's george payton's decis- decision to mortgage future on deshaun watson and now drew lock the greatest of all time. I'm not going down going down for that. See i disagree he. He's he goes. What got him here. Love elway or hate elway why he traded tibo got rid of tibo for peyton of his ego. I mean it was the move to make well. He just didn't he was scared that he'd be outshined. Tibo so i'll go with you there. Tibo the you're gonna make my face. Turn off i listen. I think that if you're you're out you're in you're either joa. So joe is vetoed a few things pillow fight. Dan says colefax is so much more than that brady is on then. Brady is on this one. Elway sharing his opinion. They'll what would you say. Hang on bear with me. Do not absolutely the. Why are we doing here pretending. Why are we paying this man. Because he's got a pretty face man. Footballs for us at one point. I love john. I have a frame of a jersey side. And every time i go by we go. It's great. we all love elway but come on if he's backing out and he's just going to be the guy that's working from pool and they call and say. Hey here's what we want to do. I don't know bro. You do whatever you wanna do man. It's your future party. i'm just living in it to world. I'm just living in it. I think he's giving his two cents. It'd be like yeah maybe try and get it for a little less. But if they don't take it and yeah go for it maybe maybe hold one of those picks back if you can and then see what we can do. That's two cents to me. And then that would be a little bit of wisdom that he may or may not have okay but if if if the scenario turns this way and it's always going i think it's a terrible move peyton.

"75% of your sample of your snaps. It tells you everything you need know about your death. The guy was a second game with the Broncos after being on the practice squad for an already decimated Niners team. Incredible. So I mean, it's just is one of those things where you know guy people that they're gonna understand. You know what's going on here, and they've got to be able to the one thing that's lost. I've noticed. On Broncos country is context. They just don't understand. The context is all results driven and there's no context of the situation. They're incapable of it. We got some good listeners here, But when I get on Twitter, I'm just like it's befuddling how the people come up and they say all this stuff and I'm like, Do you not understand what's going on here? Do you not understand that the situation like there's more to it? There's nuance here and that that Zsa lost today. You know, I wonder before we hear from the fans. Yes, I want to get to this. I'd wonder years from now, when this organization has turned a page on the John Elway GM era. Well, people look back fondly. At all when they realize the overall perspective of what he did in his 10 years here as a GM again as we mentioned the fourth most wins or winning percentage of any current active GM. Went to two Super Bowls, one of a handful of division titles. You just You wonder how they will view this era for for John Elway where they were, because right now, I think you asked people and they're just gonna point the last four or five years and say it's been terrible. It's been if it just atrocious, right But again, that's this is recency in there. When they look at the whole of it, Will they look back and say, Man? You know, we actually had a pretty good During that time. Thank you good to a three years and you will, I'd like you said. I think most people that's what happens. You get that recency bias and then two or three years and it kind of fades and you know they had the anger and animosity. Having said that just work for sports works a lot of things politics. You start thinking about it. There were people that were just on and I don't want to get too far in politics. But there are people that were, you know, angry. At George W. Bush was just angry at him by the time you know, by the time the first Obama tenure was over, most people were like, you know, George is all right. You know, he was an all right guy. You think you got a bad rap, you know, And so that's Yeah, I think that some people, you know, time heals all wounds, Hazel all animosity. All right, let's hear from Vic Fangio. So today he addressed the media and there were a lot of really interesting things about his press conference and I definitely want to get through. But this is the one that had everybody in an uproar. Twitter went nuts. I can't imagine what other sports talk radio did as well, but here's what Vic Fangio said when he was asked about his staff and whether they were coming back. Night. I do anticipating returning in full as always. You know as things happen. In the early part. Some guys may have some opportunities for advancement. You know, we'll always look at that. But other than that, I'm spending the staff back. Okay, So let's let's just take this on on his face value, and then we'll take what we know about the current situation. Okay, First of all, this is exactly what Vic Fangio said the last time he had this post season press conference, right South there with John Elway was asked about his staff, he said the they're all coming back. Blubber might have opportunities for advancement Brands daily, for example, but otherwise staff's coming back. Risk anger. L O just like we can have two weeks later. Did not have a job. Here s O. These things can be changed and fluid right? Almost immediately. Everybody freaked out because they want their pound of flesh. They want to know that there is accountability. That's the word. Where is the accountability for a five and 11 season? We need our pound of flesh. So immediately, People said. This isn't good enough like you can't possibly bring back this staff. Knowing that this team had so many struggles. Somebody has to go like somebody has to go. And this was the moment of Vic Fangio needed to announce that now that we got that all the way I don't think he needed to announce anything today whatsoever. And and Tom McMahon, as you've been reporting all along, has an expectation that he will likely not be back. Anyways, I don't know if this was necessarily the setting, especially given the circumstances, the GM search. I don't think this is necessarily a setting that needed to happen, though people still lost their minds about it. Vic Fangio doesn't have the authority to make that decision. He's not the one who who signs a renews the contract for atomic Man the point. So he's saying what is within his purview that he expects everybody back, and that's that. And if somebody else decides not to renew a contract, and Vic will look to give a suggestion for who he liked to replace that person, and that's that's how that process works. So you know, people needed they didn't quit freaking out. And you know the whole thing about we need a fire something Then you're talking about taking a dude's livelihood away. You know, you talk about taking somebody's ability to feed their family away and you'll be a gleeful about it on Twitter. That's perverse. Get some light nerves when I see stuff like that, you know, fire these P fireball fire this fire that cancer this cancel culture and, you know, also just believe me, Those people understand They know the decisions they're making. They know where the team is because it's their livelihood on the line, Not yours. You know?.

Just like with the broncos record we reverse numbers They lose elway's elway's pissed right. He saying we're gonna lose. We're going down kicking and screaming. Nobody looked happy in that game. Didn't look like we wanted to win that game. Then so what ultimately happened by by john fox. And then you bring in. He's still have managed to have this offense but you become this kind of tough nasty team you turn in. You know you really start to invest in the defense. You you hire gary kubiak you hire wade phillips and this team becomes nasty on defense. Perhaps the greatest defense of all time and didn't need to go down kicking and screaming because they won the superbowl that year. That many games where you wondered if they were going to win defense kept coming up with crazy turnovers. The whole brock osweiler thing. I mean it was a nutty nutty year..

"Because we not only this year, but even last year, you know, doing a show like this and we occasionally take colors and we talk about the Broncos, especially during the Broncos season. We're not really a sports talk show, but we talk about the Broncos for sure. But how many times have we had people call up? And say, you know, they got to get rid John Elway. You gotta fire John Elway. Gotta get red John Elway. What s so my response to that always was given the current ownership situation with the Broncos. There's only one guy. That ostensibly could fire or remove. John Elway from his position. That was Joe Ellis. My point was You know, I've talked to Joe before Joe's I mean, I'm you know, I I considered Jo Mitchell is a good man. Joe is a very smart man. And I remember saying several times so Okay, So if you're Joe Ellis, and you've already pretty much established your timeline your timeline Joe, I think will be done after next year. And that's that's no breaking news. I mean that he's in his much said that he certainly has said that, um Publicly that you know he's getting close to the end. So do you really wanna be the guy that is known for the guy that fired John Elway from the Broncos organization? So in the answer that went with the current ownership situation, Josie only guy that could have done that. So these conversations that Joe and John had, I think Um Are fascinating. We're never gonna know We're never going to be pretty to exactly that. That all that communication but the fact I think it was, um I think it was Joe and John sitting down and coming to the conclusion or at least one of them. Having the idea and then convincing the other That this is probably the best way to go. You know, And my guess is Rick, is you your point it is, John said, and I communicated with John yesterday and he said pretty much the same thing. Our runway is not getting any longer on and I hate to hear that even though it's true because, you know Were born right there with him were right. I'm actually a little bit ahead of him so, but it is true, and I think I think the communication between Joe to John and John to Joe Was that? Hey, listen, man, um Do you really want to do this at this level and grind every single day? You're 60 years old. We've had four losing seasons. All the things that all of us know to be true. Let's get this before both of us right off. Let's get this thing turned around and headed in the right direction. Let's bring some new eyes in and Let's do it that way, But But in a smart move you give John the opportunity. To stay with the organization and you can you can say, you know, move up. To an elevated post. I mean, that's fine. Whatever you know, whatever semantics you need to use in this situation. That is fine, but you give him a chance to. He's a very prideful guy. It's not like yesterday it was announced that John Elway had been fired. Is the GM and no longer will be involved in the Broncos organization wouldn't like we got that news. But in essence The move was made, and John still has an ability to be involved in some of the big decisions at least listen to him and offer his suggestion. Eddie, he continues, you know to be a part of the organization. And yet you make a change at the decision making position off the team, and I think I think that's probably the absolute best thing. The best scenario that could have been carved out of this picture. Yeah, and you look at John away A and I know this wasn't an easy thing for him to do because he is super competitive. He loves what he does. But I had made me look at him or as as a man as a human. Fellow human And he's got grandkids now. Uh, he probably would like to do some traveling play a lot more golf. You know if you get to that point of your life, and you look down the road and go How many more years do I have? What? Yeah, I mean years do I have left and there's still some things I'd like to do more of our earth. Some new things I'd like to do. It made me look at him. In a very human way, and I'm happy for him that he was able to make that very tough decision. I am really happy for John. I hope we get a chance to talk to him. And it's not like he's going away, but he just took a heavy workload off of his plate. Being a general manager in the NFL man, That's that's a big full time. Probably 80 hour a week job for a lot of these guys and John Elway at 60 years old man. Now he can He can have a life on the side. And he could still he's still got a hand in it. He's still the guy who still John Elway overseeing everything. And I'm happy for him. The one thing that puzzles me and I wanted to ask you about it. Dave was the vic Fangio connection here? Vic Fangio coming off, too. You know back to back losing seasons first two seasons as a head coach, and they say that he's going to be a part of the decision. I'm a little puzzled by that, because you would think he's on the hot seat himself. Unless they think Victor Page Geo is got Somehow a future, maybe in the In the front office after he's done coaching. I don't I don't I guess I don't understand that. I'm trying to figure that one out. Well, I because how would I put this? I think that The analogy that I would that I would use would be For the three of us in this Studio. We all had a hand. We all had a part in making the decision..

"Elway leaving that top job? Tell us about it. Yeah. John Elway announced yesterday He's stepping away from his role as general manager, and I'll hand over the day to day control of football team to new GM, The organization elevated L wait in the role of president of football operations with one year left on his contract, will oversee all things football, but only offer his input on big decisions, Elway said in his own press conference Monday. That will be good to get someone from the outside with fresh eyes on this Bronco's roster. Obviously when, when that new GM comes and he's gonna come in and make his own assessment of where we are honest, I think it's gonna be great for us and the fact that big Different perspective force too, And so I think that you know, we're looking to hear you know from from that person that there what they think about football team and where we are what they think we need to do. We'll get we'll give him our opinions. Vics obviously gonna be very involved without his horse. Being the head coach and his valuation of the players and also mine. Not Russell had been always player, personnel director and top lieutenant for the last 10 years, But rather than interview to fill the GM role he chose to retire after two decades working in NFL front offices. Russell's You may remember when the Buckets award is college football's best linebacker in the mid nineties, but injury shortened his playing career to just three years. Elway said he was proud of his tenure running the team, which included the best first five years. Any GM in the history of football, winning five division titles going to two Super Bowls and winning one. Of course, they've now gone five years without a playoff appearance, and we're also indicated will begin the search quickly. A six other NFL teams are looking for new G.

We know these guys from playing against them, so they're both really good players and They'll be that special.

"elway" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Obviously, the big news of the day, John Elway. Is stepping down his general manager. He is going to step aside from that role and stay on as director of football operations, which means the Broncos are in the market for a new GM. And the president of football operations. John Elway joins us now it first things first. John. Congratulations on number seven. That would be the seventh grandchild. Big Al's eyes lit up when he heard that today. Uh, well, thank you Know, I'm excited. Yeah, Learned another baby boy. So Mama's doing good. So, Yeah, I'm really excited about it. And it's hard to believe that, uh We got seven grand kids, but Pretty fun being a grandfather. So let's enjoy it. So John, obviously this is was not an easy decision for you to make and it is something that you were contemplating. You said today that you've been thinking about it for the last couple of years on what that exit plan would look like. When did you know that this is what you were going to do and you know you're going to do it at the end of this year. You know, I think that really started thinking a lot about it probably 23 weeks ago. And you know, at some conversation with Joe, and so I think that You know what I mean? I really started thinking about it instead of thinking about work. My role in my job here. I started looking at, you know, really? Where am I in my life? And what do I want to do with the rest of my life turning 60 this year? Obviously, the runway is getting shorter and so really kind of said, you know, and I really had a, you know. When I first got into this job, I was hoping for the opportunity some point kind of be able Move up into the role that I'm going to and be able to Oversee things and still being connected with the Broncos, a part of the Broncos but not running the day to day operations. And so I said, You know, they're really that Or the decision came is that you know the day to day things, and they have more time personal time that decided this was the right time to do it 10 years as a GM of the Denver Broncos, John, What did you learn about being a GM that you couldn't have known before? This process? You know, I think that If anything, I think that you learn that it's a tough job. This is a tough business. And you know you could do so much at the GM position, But then you know, you have to find the right people that they're gonna be able to. Win football games and coach and do those things. And so you know you even though you have control on decisions, you don't have a lot of control of what goes on to the field. And so I think that that is, you know, the Really candidate, the tough feeling of not having be able to have more of an outcome of how we win football games and those type things, especially having my career that You know, I got to tell the press the ball every down. So you know, to be able to watch games and not be able to help at the time, I think is probably the toughest thing. You know. I've I've talked long on. Um on Dad had some pretty tough talks about losing as a player in this league is something that you don't know a whole lot about. But, uh, these last four years, no one knowing you and knowing how competitive you are and how You want to just win? How tough was it these last four years not to have the kind of success that you really are used to. Yeah, I know it was hard for you know that. I mean, that's like, you know, I always thought the older I get the my competitive nature may die down, but You know what? Actually, if anything, it gets you get more competitive, Least I I felt like I have because you don't want to be able to win. And, you know, give these guys you know opportunities to be successful and compete for world championships and so Um, you know that but losing part it was, you know, I left the stadium last night Had that pit in my stomach and it was like, you know what? I think it Z timeto. You to move up a little bit and get away from this and you know, so that zoo losing is it never gets any easier. Just gets tougher, John. They're seven GM openings around the league right now and That screams that there's gonna be some guys out there that are getting their first opportunity in that role. What are you looking for? For the Denver Broncos? What are those qualities that the next GM is gonna have to have? You know, I think that you know there's gonna be with all the candidates and hopefully we're able to get you know Bill to talk to the candidates would be the best fit for the Broncos. I think obviously. You know, in that role, you have to have somebody that has that's a good manager. Because the size of the organization and the people that we have that you have to manage now continues to grow here and you're out. Obviously, you have to get great football knowledge and, you know very you know if he's making the decisions on the on the roster like you will be, you know you want him to be a very good evaluate or two, so You know, there's a lot of qualities that you know to be a great GM, or it's a tough job. And so hopefully we can find that person and by as we talk to different people. Gonna say you know, this guy might be a good fit over this because maybe he's more of a manager or he's more of an evaluator. Or how would your you know? Personnel Park Department be set up, which which also tell us that you know what kind of manager and whether they want a strong evaluator is the player personnel director or whatnot? John, you know, uh, everybody, I think that are that that is a football fan out. There probably have seen the movie draft day with Kevin Costner and he has to do all these extravagant. Deals on draft day to make these things work, but I know and you know that that's not how I really goes. What's a normal day of a GM like Well, I mean, I think that you're you know, you're here all the time. I think it's you know the hours that you put in and then people that you manage and when something's going on there always. You know, you've got to answer those questions. And so It's just a full time job. And there's not a lot of time that you could go and not be around and not be around for the head coach and the coaching staff as well as a personnel people, and then all the other things that go along with You know, managing whether beater for video or equipment or all those type things that you have to manage all those people, John, obviously, with seven openings that there are, how quickly are you looking to reach out and ask for permission to talk to folks who may currently be employed? Yeah. You know what we'd like to do that We're gonna do that soon, And so the idea of now is to get through today and then you know, we're already looking at list and see looking at the list that's available in the people are out there and and About Eun evaluation to see which people those we want to talk to, and then hopefully get him set up. Assumes he possibly can. You know one of one of the things that you know If I was on that list as possible GM, I would want to be able to have control over Who the head coaches with this GM coming in have control over whether or not Victor Angio gets to stay. No. No, that that's going to be here next year, So that's gonna be that's gonna be a part of the job that when the GM comes in that the vic in the staff are going to stay this year, and and, you know, I think that whoever that may be, hopefully accept that and understand that that situation then way it's gonna be John, if you were to look back. I mean, you obviously got to hoist a Super Bowl trophy for Super Bowl 50. But in your 10 year of being general manager of the Denver Broncos, what was one of those moments that just you just couldn't believe this happened? And it went this way..

John Elway to hire new GM for Denver Broncos, surrender final say over personnel starting in 2021
"The day here in Broncos country, John Elway after 10 years In the GM role is going to be changing his role with the Denver Broncos. He is going to remain president of football operations, but they are hiring a new GM. Alfred. What do you want to see in the new GM? Uh, I want to see E guess a blueprint. I want to see the of continuous blueprint of the same players being drafted year after year. Time after time. Even when you add guys in free agency, they all fit the same mode. So you know what the players look like before. They even become part of the Denver Broncos and give you an example. We could talk about the Pittsburgh Steelers, and we can talk about their offensive lineman. We know that they're big. We know that they're quick and they're not really massive man who stay in place. You have to be able to move out of the blue print. There has been going on for a long time, right so We need a blueprint. We have to have a blueprint of what these players like. You can't get a guy who is a second round defensive lineman who can't play on the interior of the defensive line. If you don't play a 43 defense in the 34 defense, you need to have a big style guy. So way get threw out some of the You know some of the selections that we've had in the past because guys were good college players. If they don't get the blueprint and the model, then we probably won't have them as part of the franchise going for what they have to be in that. Category. Jo Jo Oils What are we doing
Too Much Of A Good Thing: The Cautionary Tale of Biotech Crops
"Dan let's start with a little bt crops one. oh one all right. Walk us through how they work. So these genetically modified plants got their superpowers from a bacteria. Let's let julie describe it a little bit for bt in particular They express genes that. Come from a type of bacterium It's really a very common. Bacteria that's found in soils it's called bacillus thuringiensis as the scientific name now. This kind of bacteria is actually poisonous and the larval stage of some major insect pests like corn route worm. Cotton bollworm Which farmers worry about a lot. So what the scientists did was they took some of the genes from bacteria and inserted them into these corn and cotton plants which then made the plants poisonous to the insects just like the bacteria were so now. The plants can actually protect themselves by killing off past that. Try to eat them. Exactly which is a big deal for farmers. Here is david current. He's an entomologist at texas am university. He gives farmers advice on the best way to handle their insect problems. A lot of them are cotton farmers and for them. The effect was dramatic. U we'd have cases before the introduction of bt where You know farmers were having to treat you know it could be ten times. You know for these pests. The ring ten times in a season they could yeah some areas and one bt was introduced. Well our our insecticide sprays just plummeted. And you know in there were guys who wouldn't have to treat it all and that's a big deal for not just the farmers but for the environment right. Dan like those pesticides. Don't just kill the insects year. For right yeah absolutely. Regular insecticides can kill off a whole range of species and mess up the whole ecosystem. Bt crops produced specific proteins that only kill particular insects so those crops are basically harmless to pollinators like bees and beneficial insects. That prey on past help. Keep them under control. It's not toxic to people or birds and for farmers like jonathan evans and north carolina. It meant he didn't have to work so hard is always better for the plant to protect itself. Then i have to go out and try to to spray for the worms. Did it really change farming. Have -solutely i mean you can tend a lot more acres. Were the whole equipment. Got it so jonathan. The farmer loves these crops. Julie who likes insects is happy. When did things start to go sour. Dan well i guess for jonathan it was you know one day in two thousand sixteen when he went out to cotton field and saul some cotton bollworm happily chowing down on his cotton plants and he knew what that meant. Those insects had evolved. He was looking at a new strain of bollworm that the bt protein wouldn't kill and this has been happening more and more often the country right david kerns that insect specialist at texas a and m. says some farmers are pretty disappointed and angry. There's words i can't use but they wanted to know what the heck they're doing paying for a technology and they're still having a spray. Okay dan so let's talk about. Why some of those insects have become resistant to bt crops. Yeah let's get into the science mattie evolution and here we go okay so there's a part of this. It's really simple. You have a gazillion different individual. Let's say cotton bollworm out there. There's genetic variation among them and just by chance. You may very well have a few that have some genetic mutation that makes them a little less vulnerable to the fbi t. Now they're rare normally right no problem share except if you plant these bt crops everywhere you kill off all the other insects and you have. What biologists call selection pressure right those rare individuals. That aren't killed by the gmo will be the only ones that survive and they will find each other and you know what happens next. Mattie they do that birds and the bees and the bugs thing they do they they they mate and offspring and suddenly you have a lot of insects with that. Same genetic trait a new strain of resistant. Insects emerged its evolution. Right in front of your eyes. That is what has happened over and over now. It's complicated because the biotech companies actually deployed a whole series of slightly different bt jeans and we've seen insects evolve resistance. I two one gene and then the next one sometimes it took maybe five years other times. It took a lot longer fifteen even twenty years. And it's patchy in some places the bt crops are still working and other places they aren't okay but the end. This idea of selection pressure has been around for a long time right so clearly. Scientists saw this coming. Oh absolutely did. In fact i was around. I was reporting on this back when there. Were these arguments going on back when the crops were new and university. Scientists were predicting that this would happen. If the genes were overused. They were pushing this idea of refuge to keep it from happening. They said farmers should be required to plant some of their land with non bt crops Just so all those pests. You know those with and without the resistance. Gene could thrive there elway. So in that way the rare insects with genetic resistance to bt wouldn't completely take over because some of those that were sensitive would still be around to be in the gene pool exactly exactly and the companies actually agreed to this in principle but there were these big arguments about how big the refuge had to be. There were some scientists who said at least for some of these bt crops. Farmers should not be allowed to plant those crops on more than half of their land. But the company said that'll never work. Farmers won't go for bt crops at all if there's such strict rules and the companies one and sure enough now there's resistance to bt so scientists like julie are back once again this argument pushing for tighter government rules. We are at an important point where we've seen some examples of what can happen and definitely do need to make some changes. What kind of changes are we talking about here. Dan because it feels pretty late in the game. Right it is. It is but there's one thing that people are focused on there's at least one bt. Gene is still working the bugs of not resistant to it yet so it still is effective against a lot of insects. And it's sort of carrying a lot of the weight right now. It's kind of the last bt. Still standing and scientists are worried. It'll soon break. You know under that weight of overuse especially in the south is used in both corn and cotton to fight off insects so that the environmental protection agency scientific advisers have told the agency it should only allow that gene to be used in one of those crops cotton or corn and it should be caught because controlling the bollworm in cotton is just much much more important economically in corn. It's a minor pest got and cotonou can wipe out your crop. And if you don't let it be used in corn than all those cornfields are that refuge. I see see but the company that owns this gene. Syngenta says no. That's not necessary. And it's not fair and the and the epa is actually backed away from idea. Okay i mean so what happens now dan. Well there are a lot of scientists including julie peterson who say if current farming practices. Don't change. it's possible that all of the bt genes that are currently on the market will stop working reliably within ten years and then farmers will have to find new ways to fight the insects. Maybe they'll be spraying more. Insecticides again or more and this is what julie wants maybe they go back to some more old-fashioned pest control methods you know crop rotations change what crops you plant from year to year. Yeah i mean. Indigenous communities around the world have used that technique for thousands of years some organic farmers due to right the the trick is going to be using those techniques and still producing the kind of big harvest that a lot of farmers and a lot of consumers now depend on. Okay dan charles. Thank you so much for bringing us

Vanderbilt-Missouri is the first SEC game postponed due to COVID-19
"We welcome you back. Our is live and underway busy busy I our. Thirty minutes ago we learned that the first SEC game has been postponed of this twenty twenty campaign it will be. Rescheduled Vanderbilt Missouri scheduled for this Saturday in Columbia. Now, be December twelfth. We'll talk to coach drink in thirty minutes and get his reaction to that. So here we go more phone calls in a minute a lot of fans unhappy from every aspect of the winners and losers speaking of the latter. Let's talk about the Lsu Tigers two weeks ago Scott Rabble a came on. Wasn't ready to hit the panic button. Everything was calm. Scott's gotcha very scopes. Scott Seen It all before. Scott. Have you seen anything quite like the ending of Saturday's game? Good afternoon how are you? and got to the NFL Yeah that's that's you mentioned I'm kind of reminded of the and it's not a good time Lsu that ninety nine, Game Alabama when just food he tried to run the ball down like. John elway. Pin Wheeled in the air came up a yard short and and they you know they they threw the ball and the they did it. They didn't score. So yeah, it was. It was reminds me of you not good times for Lsu but you know. I gotta say the way lsu played Saturday. On defense but also on offense failing to convert a third down there really is kind of justice. They didn't really deserve to win that game I, mean they they you know they pulled it out and they would've pulled it out there. It would have been a win that covered up a lot of a lot of issues. So what? I don't know if it's safe to go outside I. Mean I know I know the version fortunately escaped the worst of the storm the other day was farther to the West but I mean what? What what is the buzz in your town especially both Pallini and and I mean three games in he seems like he's on the tip of everyone's tongue is it fair? Oh. Sure? Yeah. Absolutely. I mean this is the this is the defense that You know this change Dave Randall left defensor longtime defensive coordinator WHO's hard under? Les. Miles. You know the several years ago he left me the head coach at Baylor. So they had to hire someone like forced out or anything. So hopefully knew who was here under miles and those first three great years in the Mouse Oh, five Oh, six Oh, seven the end up with a national championship and you know just it hasn't worked at me. This questions is Bo behind the Times is not adjusted to those are some great defensive back then with Clinton Dorsey and Tyson Jackson and and you know you're a great players like that got a little on Landry secondary great players like that, and you kind of wonder you know the Adjusting but. It's just been Y- coaches you're on himself is trying to put it all on him and the coaches and they got a coach better. You said that, Saturday, after the game you set it on his press conference today, they just lost followed. They're they're good players on the Stevens, their high NFL draft pick on the defense Derek Stanley Jacoby Stevens to real cox the transfer for. North. Dakota. State people said he might have been a first round draft pick. Had He come? Out and said of transferring Ali Gay Defensive End they lost a lot of great players, but this shouldn't be this bad and aurons You know famously said, then the all season, the defense look better in practice than at any time last year, and obviously that is not the case and they gave up eight plays a twenty yards of more. Missouri averaged almost nine yards per play and five and a half yards per carry it and it just that's just not. That's just not winning football and worst of all they all she just looked. I saw gene gene Chizik said after the game. So you. Look, like on Defense Soft and lost, and Lsu looks like both unfortunately for them. By, the way everything you just got through saying you could replicate for three or four other SEC schools except none of them are the defending champions like Lsu. Scott we're three games in I. Mean we all know that and I'm not sure how much you can value. A. Win Over Vanderbilt Right now considering the state of that program. But as you look ahead I, mean you don't look any farther than this weekend against Florida. LSU will need to score seventy points to keep up with them. Immediate? Looks. That way and I'm not a betting Guy Pa, my government I think I've looked at the over maybe go for that Florida's defense looks pretty challenge to Alabama wins and gives up forty eight points to stole miss. But the the disturbing serving big frail issue. Yeah. Everyone's having trouble defensively No question. Do you wonder if that lack of spring football or the proper time to prepare in the off season has hurt them But you know you look at that once you give six, hundred, twenty, three guys and the Mississippi State, history has been dreadful offense against Arkansas and Kentucky the last two weeks Missouri scored like I think three touchdowns combined the first Games averaging like fifteen points a game against Alabama Tennessee and it just go wild lsu just look great. I mean that's that's the part. That's that's extra disturbing prelates pans and like the lsu fans always. Always wanted this offense obviously, they complained for years and rightly. So by the the plotting less miles offense, but there's a lot of pride in the school, the the the the billy cannon is the star up in you know and and now Joe Borough and players like that. But the tried is always been the defense, the Chinese bandits, Tommy Tests Inova Win Dorsey Laurent Landry mentioned, Patrick, Peterson, Taran Taran Matthew, and what else he doesn't play Great Defense I. Think this is this is like a core value of lsu's program that is not being being held a lived up to, and it's it's very troubling Tila lsu probably would take a little less offense for some better defensive as. Scott Realistically I mean this weekend looks like a long shot I would have to say I mean still Alabama. Out There Auburn out there. South, Carolina am I mean everyone knows the schedule? I mean before the season some might be hard to win them all but maybe maybe eight or nine. Where's the sliding scale right now? Ball I don't know it's sliding really. Really. Bad way down the hill. You know a lot of hills here in Baton Rouge but he found it. It's sledding Hill that way. Down Victory Hill Yes for the team marches down normally before the Games by Tigers stadium is not vitriol right now I I like everybody else said like the six games else who's GonNa win and four games where the season's going to be decided Alabama Auburn Florida and Texas a&M, and right now I don't think he can after South Carolina just banning by the same score Lsu did Arkansas has played. She's gotTa go to they'll South Carolina, comes here in in two weeks I don't I don't think. There's any Sherwin left for L. Share on the schedule I don't think they're gonNA go one nine but I think right now you just gotTa. Look at what can you do to have a have a winning season they're still good players There's on this team in town they lost a lot from last year obviously, but you know the they've got to. Change, the things coach today coach talk today about simplifying both offense and defense. Again remember the offense was Owen on third down Saturday that's a pretty bad step to although this court forty-one points should have been enough to win, but it's still some really great players on the House Brennan. Has Not Been, Joe Borough, been very good. You know he's had over three hundred yards passing game over four hundred yards Saturday tariffs, marshalls been tremendous hit two, hundred, thirty, five, yard service and three touchdowns Saturday. So this, this isn't good players in the team, but they just got to get tougher and and find a way to grind out a win somewhere and and this is not entirely similar fall I gotta say from twenty. Dissimilar from twenty seventeen she lost at home Detroit and went to Florida the next week and they won the game I'm not saying I'm not predicting she win. But this have the size, a lot of field of that when they kind of looked tougher and more determined and they found a way to win and they've never looked back games on order on, they're gonna be hard pressed to avoid doing that obviously late this week. He had I wouldn't call it a charm to existence because now that you mentioned the troy game and there had been some ups and downs but certainly coming off the best year ever how is he handling the defeats? A He's he's trying to take a lot of the blame on himself and deflected from his team Not exactly deflecting from the assistant coaches said, he's talked about, hey, on defensive we just have one coverage and one one formation. Let's do that. Let's and you said. Some things on offense too. I think he's kind of talking about Scott Lenihan, the new guy, a passing game coordinator WHO and Red Zone specialists who take the place of Joe Brady who who was on the staff last year and of course talking about Botha? Lenient? Coach, and he said something telling today I thought that you said, you know the most Ryan. The defense but he he's he's going to you know be checked in on every formation every plan that they use you know as a defensive line coach that's his forte he he's going to be I think maybe a little more hands on with the formations they use and the and the and the coverages, and but some of that are doing well, he's Got Thrown out I think that. This is the defense he wanted this is he talking about being wardrobe four three and they've got a great. Turn of Russia there plus six turnover ratio they're doing very well at that the they're causing some some big plays in that in that regard and turnovers just can't get off the field and can't Can't stop people and giving up a big big yards on the ground, and then these these huge places. The elected eight plays a twenty yards or more Saturday and gets very, which is

Broncos Finalizing Deal to Make Pat Shurmur New Offensive Coordinator
"Well we just talk to my class are brokers insider who told us that the deal is done with that tactic Schirmer to be the new see for the Denver Broncos official press release from the team hopefully coming sometime before the end of the week big al with Schirmer being the new offense of coordinator what do you see as the pros and cons for this this young this young offense with the very young rookie quarterback is gonna be going into your to what I'm looking for are the things that that you can give a team and that's easy to roles and I always talk about this because I believe that that's the key to winning football games in this league how can you create an easy throw a one on one getting the guy wide open like we saw Devine to Adam's last night plan for the Packers you know the Packers go with the heavy formation they run a play that look like it's going to be a post but it then it turns into a corner is a seven right and then you look up and you say all my goodness the guy has a football it's one on one coverage he makes one guy miss and any out runs the coverage that's it easy to roll okay it's not fit the ball in the window it's not a drop back play act soon getting a guide you know own a seventeen yard dig route it's none of those things it's making the girls that the good players make to wide open guys but you have to design those plays for those guys to be wide open and the quarterback shouldn't be surprised when a wide open and when they're not wide open take the ball and run it that's what the good teams in the NFL do that's how you win football games in this business by getting your quarterback easy throws that you can feel good about and we didn't do that especially not against the Kansas City Chiefs are we rich gang real and I hate to see guys getting fired trust me it's it's not it's it's you know nobody wants to see that I wish there was a way that he could have stayed on and work with the quarterbacks something of that nature but maybe it's maybe it's too muddy if he's in Rome but you know it just we just have to have a change in and once again the greatest throws in the NFL aren't necessarily the ones that are forty M. fifty yards down the field like we saw this weekend but we also saw we also saw Patrick my homes we were out to the running back I think it was Williams out of the backfield on what looked like to be a six star pass it ended up being a seventeen yard touchdown the design of the play against the covers that was played was perfect and the guy had a free run to the end zone I mean those are the plays that you expect out of a great offensive coordinator and that's certainly what I'm looking forward Pat Shurmur who spent a lot of time with Andy Reid and Philadelphia I take it I think he was there for at least ten seasons with Andy Reid going from offense of line coach tidy and coats two quarterbacks coach so he understands the offense it's complete and of course in that Minnesota offense that's what we have to go last because that's where he was calling plays exclusively you look at that team and what they were able to do and the way that they brought on Adam Thielen out of no where to become a star well you know that he understands what kind of receipt what the receivers need to look like and not how they need to run there are so many different ways that we can look at this as be an improvement to be an improvement to what we had last year in part of it believe it or not Joe Joe is evaluating players for the upcoming draft that's a big big part of it because trust me there is a common formula to run in this offense and really make it work Stefon Diggs is the guy that blows the doors off of the defense is for the Minnesota Vikings before we and you look at back at Pat Shurmur when he was with Andy Reid it was the son Jackson now what is a in to read as he has he'll explosive wires see what to add to re kill who blows the doors off so I'm almost guaranteed you I'm almost guaranteeing you were going to find a guy that can blow the doors off of the defense in round one or two of this year's NFL draft that's how you make that all things work do you have a guy that can a workhorse guy who can catch the balls and make it happen that's called sudden but we need one of those guys that is scary says that blows the doors off the defense the evaluation process of what that guy looks like I trust Pat Shurmur more than I do John Elway to
