When did you know that while we're pretty good or we're really good? Because it seemed to come all of a sudden and then you guys were dominant for a decade. You know, I think when we started believing in ourselves and the core players played together for a long time, I think that's what really makes a hockey team. It's hard when you start injecting people in and out your roster a lot. And so when we were able to stay together as long as possible, we always had the nucleus of players from the start with Scott Stevens Scott ninay identical myself.

"And another thing I think it's worth at least thinking about is right now obviously diverse is the guy. They're not going to fool around there. They're not moving endeavors to DH while JD's here. They're not moving in first, but Devers is the guy at third. But if Deborah gets hurt and has to miss a month, who else is going to play third? I think right now if Deborah's gets hurt your third baseman's Bobby dahlbeck. I would agree with you find someone else to stick it first, right? So there's that added value that brings, even though most days, his ability to play third is a non issue, because third base is filled. But the fact that he can do it gives you a little bit of insurance at third base and I think also adds some value to him in the short term for the Red Sox. So yeah, it's an interesting position because all back had a good second half rough first half defense wasn't great. But how much are you really going to invest in first base when arguably the best first base prospect in baseball is sitting in a potentially two months away? So is he on the regular roster coming out of spring training if the Red Sox had there? Brothers, Kristin Cassidy make it. No. I don't think so. Because I think they want him to play triple-A. One thing that cassis has, he, I think everyone universally agrees he has tremendous power potential. He could be 30, 40 Homer guy. But he's never slugged 500 in the minor leagues. He's now, I think, then you see what he does, like in the Olympics, right? He plays 5 games, hits three home runs, all three of them go ahead and owners. I think it's there. And I think they think it's there, but that he is a smart enough young player and a confident enough young player that he has spent the minor leagues honing his hitting, right? Being a I mean, he has a legit two strike approach. He could go up the middle. He does, he has never once tried to just sell out for power and show everyone that he can hit massive home runs. I think that's just in there. And when he I think there's a chance when he gets to a stage when he needs it, he's going to be that guy. But I think you still want to see it. And I think you still wanted to go back to triple-A, get some time. You know, I mean, he's pretty young and mixed in here as a whole minor league season that was lost. It's not the worst for him to get a little bit more development time, especially in triple-A and then especially when high bloom has talked about that he thinks triple-A is a vital step for these guys. You know, in the past under dombrowski, you know, Devers basically skip triple-A, been attende basically skip triple-A. I don't know that we're going to see that very much under high, because he has talked about that he thinks triple-A is a vital step along the way. And so I know I don't think there's much of any chance that cassis makes team out of spring training..

"That is Edgar Martinez. And you got Edgar Martinez in the regular season and then on top of that, you add all of the big Poppins, right? Everything that happened in October, winning rings, this is our effing city. You take all of that stuff and put it on top of Edgar Martinez. Now we've got what I think is a very easy vote in the end. Absolutely. And I think, you know, your point about you can't tell the story without the player is a brilliant one. And I think it really, that kind of quantifies to med Jennings or qualifies to me. What people talk about when they say if you know a Hall of Famer, if you see it, if you have to make any argument for him, he's not a Hall of Famer. Well, with David Ortiz, once you take the whole picture into account with David Ortiz, I don't think there's any doubt. And, you know, I think, you know, his stature at the beginning of his career to the, this is our effing city in 2013. And all of the stuff he did toward the end of his career, he was just so consistent for such a long period of time to me. It was a no brainer. I do want to address your full ballot here. And the other names besides David Ortiz, Bobby Abreu, which you have mentioned, Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Todd, Hilton, Andrew Jones, Scott Rowland, Gary Sheffield, Sammy Sosa, Billy Wagner. So with bonds, Clemens and Sosa, why did you put them on there? I've come to think that the steroid era was a failure of everyone. It was allowed to happen in my mind. That's not to say they weren't cheating the game that's not to say that there weren't moral and ethical lines crossed here, but the league and the Players Association let it happen. I mean, they knew what was going on. I just can't so I can not look at this and go, well, they were cheating, but in a sport that was allowing them to do so and celebrating them for doing so. And now retroactively say, well, you tarnished the game. Well, the game was tarnished. So the game was letting itself be tarnished along the way. And then I draw a line between, okay, then the league figures out what's going on here and decides that it's too ugly..

"Everybody, it is tracks and this week on Red Sox beat the first one of 2022. I welcome back Chad, Jennings of the athletic. You can follow him on Twitter he does a great job covering the Red Sox, along with Jen McCaffrey, follow him on Twitter at Chad Jennings 22 all one word. Chad, thanks for joining me. You wrote a terrific piece this week on the athletic, explaining your vote for the one and only big poppy. David Ortiz for cooperstown. And you like me, thought it was pretty much a no brainer, but what I liked about your story, Chad, is that you did a great job of extrapolating the stats and comparing him with Edgar Martinez of the Seattle Mariners. And I want to get an idea from you why you thought Edgar already in the Hall of Fame back in 2019 was such a good comp. Well, I guess it's a, for me, just because of the Hall of Fame standard, right? You're trying to figure out what makes a Hall of Fame designated hitter. And I think that's tough. And I had decided, you know, look, there's no I don't, I can't tell you what the number is that makes me think that he's a Hall of Fame player or whatever. But I felt like Edgar was the guy he was before I had a vote, but I would have voted for him. And I think with Ortiz, as I noted in the story, I never really covered it. My first year on the Red Sox, I was covering the Yankees when he was playing and so my first year on the Red Sox was after he'd left. And I just, I thought he was probably all of Famer, but I also thought, you know, there's a chance that everything else around David, right? Not only the postseason success for sure, but also just the personality had maybe inflated the what we expected of his numbers, right? I thought there's a chance I didn't get to his numbers and they were just kind of good, but I didn't know if they would be Hall of Fame great. And it was amazing to me how much they just almost match up perfectly with Edgar Martinez. So maybe that the in terms of they did it differently, right? More power for more teas more kind of on base with Edgar, but to see that in the regular season that he was Edgar Martinez in the regular season. And then on top of that, he has all the playoff success. And then I also think on top of that that he is big poppy, right? Not that just having a big personality and being an iconic face and name in the game is enough to make you a Hall of Fame, but I think it matters. I mean, the story of baseball in the first 15 years of this century has to include David Ortiz. I mean, he is a vital piece of that. And so you add all that together. And then it's an easy vote. But yeah, going into it. I was, I don't know if skeptical is the right word. But I at least thought, you know, you wanted to do your due diligence. Right. I'm not going to automatically check the box because there is a chance that somehow the narrative has gotten in the way of facts here. And so I tried to look at the facts and the facts were pretty good. See what I like about that Chad is the fact that everybody's going to a lot of fans out there..

So I'm just in a good place personally and 62, you know, county, how many summers I have left and just really want to enjoy what's going on to this date in my career. It has been an amazing hockey life for you. You're going to have a bunch of people I would assume family and friends into Toronto for the Hall of Fame. You just had the Jersey retirement. Ceremony, when you talk of emotion earlier, is there someone you're going to see that you haven't seen in a while that you're really looking forward to in Toronto? I assume it'll be an awesome weekend. Yeah, just a collection of, you know, we were in New York for four years and we made some great friends there. Some of them are coming in. I have most of my cousins are in the eastern part of Canada. I mean, I've lived full time in Edmonton and at our summer place on the shoes while Lake and beautiful interior British Columbia. And so don't get east that much anymore, but a few cousins. So my father passed away when I was 13 years old, just about a month after the summit series in 1972. And my brother Kenny was 5 years older than me. So he was 18 at college. I had an older cousin that my dad had coached and had been working for my dad. And he is going to be there with his younger brother who's kind of in between us age wise. And they really, those guys and my brother are instrumental instrumental in my hockey career after my dad had passed away. My cousin Carmen Lowell played at saint of X in the east coast state of vaccine university. They had a good hockey program back then. You have tea and Loyola or uve were the top university teams in Canada and he was highly scouted. He just, he had Bobby or his knees before Bobby or had his knees. So his career and then he came back and took his university degree and worked for my dad and then, you know, obviously it took over that when my dad passed away..

You are do you have a paramedic near you? No, but it's becoming abundantly clear that I need one, right? Yes. So Tuesday night, I'm doing the Ottawa Boston game. Regionally on TSN. I'm in studio with Lindsey Hamilton. Jamie mcclen is at home. And then you've got Gordon and you've got pooley in Boston doing the game. Second intermission. Stupidly, coffee is a trigger to cough trigger for me. And you've been around me long enough and often enough to see those little spasms on occasion, right? It's amazing the shade of red, your head turns. In the eyeballs, just really accentuates one of them that one day they're just gonna pop out both of them going like a bug's bunny cartoon. So I've had a cup of coffee, which I shouldn't have done, I don't normally do. And the building decides that they're going to flip the air conditioning on during the second period. And you've sat on that set in studio 6 and the air blowing down on you, right? Yeah. And I just drive right up. Dried right up. So second intermission starts first block and poor Lindsey goes to noodles. He does his highlight flawlessly. They come to me. I'm going to do the Derek forbert goal and how that broke down. And why DJ Smith was sour because Brad marchand got away with a penalty in the neutrals on all of this. I start talking and it's literally like if.

"Guess in its entirety track size point five three three miles banking up to twenty eight degrees the Front and back stretches are equidistant. Yes they are. I don't care what you say. Six hundred fifty feet each. But i don't care. Those trays are the same length. So nobody ever says that stages one twenty-five each to two fifty than five hundred full races two hundred sixty six point five miles. Last year's winner was kevin harvick. We don't care about the spring because they made it all messier and whatnot right. But so what this means is with equidistant on this one. If you take the track long ways okay here we go again. You cut it right down the middle going along ways the exact same on both sides now if you do it going the other way then you cut in the middle snacking or maybe it's short welcome. How whatever the. We've got bristol under the lights saturday night. Short-track action seven thirty. pm eastern on nbc as an the last race of the round of sixteen. And it's a tripleheader weekend. Toby has more ooh yes. I do extremely seriously racing. Friday at seven thirty. Pm eastern on nbc truck series on thursday nine pm eastern on f s one. So that's how you do it and after bristol. Of course the next round of the playoffs for the nascar cup series includes las vegas talladega superspeedway blah of course the wroval at charlotte role. Vol- it's not the same drivers bust and lucid bristol. We begin with denny. Hamlin who has two wins eight top fives. Fourteen top tens average finishes fourteen point seven. That's not bad. How about joy. Llegado two wins six top five ten top tens and average finish of fifteen point. One the closer kevin harvick three wins. Thirteen five twenty top. Ten thirteen point four average finish. We're getting into some guys that have a lot of wins this race. Track brag has three wins six top five seven top tens an average of seventeen point three and then the bush brothers to close it out. Kurt has six wins at this track. Twelve top fives twenty one top tens and his average finishes fourteen. But that has nothing Of his brother. Kyle busch gotten kyle's trying to secure his way in the next round ploughs. Kurt is as well so. This can be big for both of them this weekend. But cowboys eight wins. Eight wins carry. I'll say eight wins at bristol murphy wild because so much crazy stuff happens to this track to win. Eight times is pretty impressive.

"Stepping into the black and yellow car that i had been nicknamed midnight. That car wanna talk races. That change game was on many cars and it's still wanted a lot of races and there was one of the fan favorites. 'cause actually mr pence design their car solid black with yellow with very minimal decals on earth. Real plain looking carpet. Real just a real sexy car and was my hobby fans favor. Peace of mind Them's mine too but One page game day. We had a lot of fun with this. Won't be partnered up a harley davidson and a motorcycle san and we're my sons. Actually building high end beggar motorcycles. Right now is to living But anyway we had. We put a deal together holiday davidson. We had harley all of our car along with miller lite and that was cool because we had Willie g davidson the owner farley. The lead designer get together with me on the paint scheme and roger penske. Let me and really cheat his car. We ran that harley davidson paint and a lot of places. That's very cool to see where on with nascar hall of famer rusty wallace and being a hall of fame one of the true benefits. Is those really cool shirts they give. You gotta be proud to be walking around in those things right. Yeah you know. I'll tell you that's one of my greatest honors being hall of famer and You know it's still got a special rang when i get ready to start. My radio broadcast the motivation network. The boys star. They'll come wanna say up here. And jeff st alexander allocating and nascar hall of famer rusty wallace without. Yeah i can only imagine. That's gotta be a truly an honor but you totally deserve it. So nascar playoffs. You're in phoenix. That's where the final four is gonna meet up and fight for this championship Who do you think. Who are those four people going to be a battling for the championship this year. Now you got me looking at crystal ball right. So i'm gonna say i'm gonna say cow larsen and i'm gonna say chase elliott. I'm gonna say Let me pick another one I'm gonna say ryan blaney the young kid and who else i'm going to put in there not on my gosh. You wanna say breath lousy. But but he's not what team fence next year and he's just been having some bad luck so i can't pick him. I've been always pick kevin harvick. Kevin harvick having terrible look so it's hard to pick him. So i guess the last i guess last picks up the towel bush right. He's always So there you go all right final question. The last race in this segment of the The championship is at bristol. Motor speedway that is going to be some fender. Bang an action. I think to to get into the next round of the playoffs. Will you know will be. I mean the order richmond this weekend. That's going to be some tender back in there for sure and then you've taken the bristol and you better. It's kinda get ramped up more yet. So i totally agree. I mean these guys are feeling desperation too. I mean i can see.

"The question has. Jj are caught up with hendrick motorsports or even ryan blaney since he wanted to racist recently. Well in this format the playoffs and championship format. It's hard to tell who actually is where before we get to the playoffs because a lot of people won't really show all their cards. They're kind of are in being their way To to the playoffs even though there's not much you can do it. The cars this year with the parts. Free and all that stuff There's still some kind of weird developments going on because all of a sudden now. The offs have started and these guys at joe gibbs racing that you know church won three races early in the year hamlin hadn't won and christopher bell won the won at daytona road course but has been kind of out to lunch for a lot of the season novel sudden playoffs and they've elevated to another level so they were hiding and holding something back for sure The question is are they better than the hendrick cars. I don't know 'cause the intercourse keep shooting themselves in the foot yet. Larsen and start in the back of the race. So that kinda threw out the very beginning Thrown over Jackson stuff so if they can clean up those issues we might see a head to head battle and no and it might be a pretty fantastic battle. We've got you know two hundred cars in the bubble which we'll talk about in just a second. I mean alex. Bowman william buyer. I will never thought those two guys would be fighting for a chance to move on from the first round. Yeah frogs bone. You've got three wins this season e-expect into the round one with three wins. And your back pocket becky. I'm pretty good the male not the case. So you've got to really be on your on your ps and qs and the play offs and Had a rough luck to start things Some of its self inflicted But they've got a really clean things up here in the last week of course every week. It seems like he's tied for that last spot but loses the tiebreaker based on the best finish the round. So he's going to have to get something this week bristol. Yeah he's tied with the kurt busch for that That bubble shot there in twelfth. And you got to tyler. Radic william buyer and michael mcdowell is basically drowning. I mean he's coast yeah. i mean. you can't really recover much from that. darlington crash. The only chance he really had was the dry flawlessly and hope other people had problems just based on the equipment level but they have their front row motorsports and they kind of lost that advantage early on when when they crashed at darlington. So they're just kind of hoping for some kind of a crazy hail. Mary win out of nowhere if there was a road if there was a road course or a superspeedway next then i'd say he has a shot. But it's yeah personnel. Thing was if he could have gotten out of this round and somehow made it to the next one. He would have been dangerous. Because you've got a road course and you've got a place in the next round But yeah this isn't boating. Welfare michael mcdowell. Certainly certainly not. Oh this just in the nineteen car. Had one secure unsecured lug nut after the race so his crew chief james small will have a smaller wallet by ten thousand dollars. I think he's gonna be very happy. They're going to one lug nut retire next year. So can we talk about that initial start. I know you mentioned it briefly. Yeah yeah can we talk about how stupid i could see martin side of things i mean. What does he spoke. You know. I see martin side exactly. So what do you want him to do when we go ahead and hamlin puts the gas down and is trying to go and so goes crap. I gotta go now to hamlin. Spends his tires. What do you want to slam on the brakes. Because if he does and then raise the from behind. So so your option is if you're martin church junior is to just start the dang race and hope for the best and you get penalized for not crashing the field. So i don't know. I think that's the stupidest call they need to figure something out or visually look at the video and say okay well. Denny spun his tires. I mean that needs to be a balls and strike kinda call. They've got all this s. T. data so what they can do. They can go back and make sure that troops did not accelerate before hamlin did i mean they have the data. They can do that right. so once. You determine that and you determine hamlin punched it. I you know okay. Wheels must have spun because he didn't make the lion. I i can also assume they have eyeballs. They could look pretty obvious. So sometimes they have these black and white rules which they enforce black and white which should be open to interpretation and then they have these other rules. That should be black and white. Because it's so obvious that they don't enforce that way so frustrating luckily for martin tricks junior and his fanbase he was able to make a miraculous rally but he shouldn't have had to do all that i mean he's really should have had the lead on lap. One should have been just fine. So i don't agree with that ruling and never have i understand if he beat them to the line just because he's an idiot that's fine and went to heads fine. But he didn't go early. So i mean that's just that's a stupid safe to say martin tricks juniors not an idiot so i am so excited about this coming up next a true nascar legend. He's in the hall of fame. He has the fancy shirts everything. He's a champion. i'm sure he has a wing dedicated to him right rusty wallace on this show. He's next you will listen. Enjoy on t. f. l. w. off mike us at facebook dot com slash the final lap. Like us this is the final lap weekly on the final lap with us.

Derek Jeter Is Intrinsic to the Story of Baseball
"Era, baseball is a story, beginning to end. You can not tell the story of a baseball that Derek Jeter's extremely meaningful contributions. He owns signature moment after a signature moment. If you're not a fan of the Yankees, I understand why you wouldn't want to watch them again. I don't want to watch David Ortiz's home runs, but Derek Jeter is intrinsic to the fabric of the game from 1995 to roughly 2012. He deserves to be celebrated. He would be and I'm gonna go one, I'm gonna go one more here. People say Jeter wouldn't be celebrating the same manner if he played in Kansas City or Milwaukee. I'm gonna go another level and say he would be much more celebrated if he'd played against the city or Milwaukee and was just as great. Do you see what they say about George Brett? He is the leader of an entire generation of fans for the entire Midwest. People think George Bret is unimpeachably a God. If they're generated play one of these small cities and won one to two World Series surrounded by good teams in these tinier baseball towns, he would be he would be the first 101 percenter Hall of Famer. He suffers from being a Yankee because people have Yankee fatigue. That's my hottest take it and I'm putting that on you. Do you agree or disagree? I agree with CCC Matthew played a half season with the brewers and he's still a legend there. Like he's gonna get a statue. Yeah. Derek Jeter, I mean, it's hilarious because now all of a sudden when people have whole definitive Hall of Fame cases and it's someone you don't like. Then we're gonna dive into the contrarian statistics. And we're gonna look at advanced defensive stats and how they weren't that great. And why that should knock him down a peg as one of the all time greats. I and that's the same people who will argue that that, you know, if you don't have enough championships, why do you deserve to be in the hall fame? It's just every argument is to satisfy the

I mean i've got the same question for you jim. I'm sitting here. And i'm seeing the stock down to three tenths of a percents and i'm wondering the same thing. Tesla beat revenue by four percent. They beat earnings by more than fifty percents and the stock is down. So you know. I'm a little bit surprised honestly. Because i think tesla did crush it. Maybe some of the comments on the earnings call weren't what investors were looking for but Yeah i'm definitely super happy with the results personally. I think that when i saw the numbers they were terrific on the call I described the the com school as pedestrian knitting described manufacturing processes and he described guide the same thing that ford gm say which is supply chain issues semiconductor problems. Is it possible when he says that synagogue shortages this quite serious that it's actually maybe for the first time i'm hearing under promise. So maybe overdeliver if he gets those semiconductors i definitely think that's part of it. I also think you just want people to appreciate the challenges that the industry and tesla's dealing with right now And in light of those challenges just setting the results against those they're even more impressive I think probably to some extent. That's what he wants trying to get across. Obviously he you know doesn't necessarily word it in those terms He's not really about the short-term stock price but I think that's what he's getting at is just how difficult things have been and yet.

other the raw gonna try our darnedest to get through this is one country one nation under god so that's what we're doing tonight so I'm giving you permission do not feel guilty about talking about Tom Brady and the patriots do not feel bad because you're paying attention to what's going on with Philip rivers going to the colts Janus Winston being out on the street in Tampa Bay cam Newton being out in the street after teddy Bridgewater is gonna go take that job in in Carolina it's okay for us to talk about this stuff you need a little bit of a break now and then that's we're trying to do for the

six Super Bowl rings Tom it's okay could you leave us or it's okay for you to say talk one of the world would you leave us after we've got all the success together why would you go on put on a Tampa Bay buccaneer Jersey one we've had so much success together it seems like you're walking out on us it's okay for you to say Hey listen I think craft and I think the head coach mess this thing up and why in the world with Gillette Tom Brady walk if you're if you're buccaneer fan did you root for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers you've got to be like a little kid on Christmas morning want to stand up and

one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four two two seven how to put it to you this way I think that Tom Brady leaving the New England Patriots is a travesty it's a tragedy Tom Brady should have gone down in the history of Boston on the same on the same platitudes is the splendid splinter Ted Williams he should have gone out on the same stage as yes as bill Russell there's all those all time greats to play their entire career in Boston and the fact that he's leaving to go to Tampa Bay squabbling over whatever reason chased him out of the place he's called home for twenty years to me it's pretty sad we're all we're gonna Y. goodness and you're gonna see a lot of people writing this on a lot of people talking about his his hero was was Joe Montana Hey Joe Montana got run out of San Francisco at the end of his hall of fame career and ended up finishing is his season his last two years we love the Kansas city chiefs to the playoffs this has nothing to do with what Joe Montana faced at the end of his career in fact does very little to do with Tom Brady's hero finding a new area code in a zip code at the end of his career this has more to do with eagles and I'll be honest I think they're serious mismanagement and we're really going to see whether Robert Kraft is the greatest owner of history of sports it bill Belichick is the genius that we've all anointed him to be and I'll explain why here in just a second but again let me give you that toll free number eight five five two one two four two two seven eight five five two one two four.

"All right guys. Welcome back and get back to talking Jimmy Johnson the pro football hall of fame and everything else right here on the OCHO. It's going to be some makes you think about Joe Avezzano norv Turner. You know. Dave wants dead. All you know all those guys you know. There's not an astrologer Roger Happening I you know I do Wanna get your thoughts on. I tweeted this and I. I texted it to you as well. It is is I. I can't think I'm not trying to just be harsh. I mean you know that's sometimes as part of the Gig what I really truly believe. It's embarrassing for the Dallas Cowboys. That Jimmy is now a pro football hall of Famer and that it actually took this. You know a specific centennial annual class for him to get in and that he's not in the ring of honor that's it's it's a shame it really truly is yeah it is And and you know I don't know we don't know you know the behind the scenes of of all that but it certainly does you know put Put their among you know on the front of the The world stage just to you know. How do you explain this right? Yeah and the guys in the hall all of fame because of what he did in your organization. Yeah he's not what dozens yeah. Yeah no exactly You know so yeah I mean I I you know I agree with you and you know it's also you know kind of you know how like we always talk about things you can't plan you know the the same very same week that Jason Garrett Leave the organization. Mike McCarthy joins the organization and then Jimmy Johnson gets inducted into the pro football hall of fame. I mean you just can't plan that I mean and you know so here is McCarthy now you know he's now he's got you know quite a high standard To you know to shoot after and then you know I I wish him the all the success and hope he surpasses that but you you know. That's pretty high standard now. Yeah I WANNA get your. We've got a criminal out into the end here but to finish the tai-bo on the Jimmy Jerry. Thing it you're right like there could be. I mean because you know there's an infinite amount of possibilities or I guess it's technically fine but I mean there is potentially a reasonable or at least somewhat understandable reason. Why Jimmy Johnson's not during a fire like that possibility does exist? But you said it I mean you. CanNot it really explain this in all this does is really make Jerry. Jones look poorly. I don't think you know I think that you look at it. I don't believe leaving Karma that's not like you know our faith or anything but I do think it's at the very least interesting that you know so you know because people say Jerry's there is only in the hall of fame because he stood on. Jimmy shows whatever but. I think it's funny that you know denied that Jerry was celebrated with cowboys fans at Agency stadium. Liam for going on you know when they give them their hall of fame ring. That night was the night. They lost to the eagles in two thousand seventeen. That's literally the worst loss ever in a ged stadium sister. You know what I mean. That's just a really funny coincidence. And you know you look at Gil Brandt who also took way too long to get him to honor and he just barely got in there before before he got into the hall of fame and at the time the writing was on the wall that he was going into the hall but Gil Brandt went in the night. They beat the saints in two thousand eighteen. You you know what I mean this like incredible night everyone will remember forever or as Jerry went on this one that everyone wants to forget and it just I think those are funny things that automatically you know make paint Jerry in a poor light or whatever he did release a statement And he said were so happy that the hall of fame has recognized. Jimmy Johnson. Awesome for what he is. That's the first sentence and it's just like well. Then how have you not you know. It's a really unsettling thing and I think that like like throwing a boomerang. Yeah it's a really a hypocrite. I don't know what word to use but it it looks really badly on the cowboys organization. That that it actually happened. I mean great for Jimmy Johnson. But you know you know. Somebody tweeted at us on the block on the boys camp. It said that Jerry should inductive an I vehemently disagree superior that the moment should belong to Jimmy and Jimmy alone because he did he has not gotten that do in cowboys fans. He should bathe in it all in his own. If he wants have his players you know like we talked triplets. Think that would be cool but this you know. It's a really really really bad season for Jerry. Jones the owner of the cowboys. And this is kind of the. You know the closing of that circle so to speak. Yeah no I totally agree and and the yeah. Yeah I mean I I think that You Know Jerry Has Been Very very kind of to due to Jimmy in terms of you know whatever success cowboys have had in terms of including hammer recognizing them for that in fact you know may have even gone out of his way to try tried to leave him out of it but You know this it's here is something he cannot ignore it. I mean it It's very vivid. Part of You know with the cowboys success is is due to and And Yeah I think it's Jimmy's opportunity. I'm you know Going there and enjoy the moment with themselves by you know himself on on a standalone basis as a as a dynamic coach that You know did some some pioneering things to change the game and I do believe that firmly We'll go in order of importance here with regards to the new cowboys. Head coach conference title Games. You mentioned it briefly. But you haven't been on the pod sense. What are your thoughts thoughts on Mike McCarthy just to get them out into the ether? I liked him You know I think you know I have been sorry to cut you off but I meant to add things you cannot plan. They comment you go. I mean you couldn't plan first of all that the hall of fame announced these you know what I mean like the bill cower and Jimmy Me Johnson thing like they're never announced you know what I mean divisional weaken. This is like the the one time that ever happened in into your point. It was the week that the cowboys moved on from guaranteed McCarthy earthy and that had happened at halftime of the cowboys new coaches old team punching their ticket to the NFC championship game. Sorry the airport. Yeah no I mean that's very Very pinpoint and I appreciate that but no I I like the I like the higher of Mike McCarthy I liked what He's talked about that he's done in the off season I think that You know and I'm hoping hoping although we you know we really haven't seen the exact nature of what latitude and authority and level of decision. Making he is is going to have. But I'm assuming that it's going to be you know Enough that made him accept the job or helped him accept the job I certainly don't see him as a guest person to just come in here and you know. Take everything that the The Front Office wants him to say and do and do it. you know so. I'm I'm happy that we've got somebody that you know. I consider to be a high pedigree. I think He will make some changes is You know they may not take cowboys to the Super Bowl in year. One but I certainly think that the There will be a lot of Improvements mints in terms of the Execution in the and the football play and The disciplinary type of approach to the game. Something that I think were some of the weakest links that we had Past few years here. It's ironic that those would be the the weakling Sunday cowboys. You know the cowboys of today you know. In the year. The Jimmy Johnson goes into the hall of fame when those were arguably really his greatest assets. I mean it's just it is rated contract. Yeah right So finally Were recording this right after the conference unstamped ship Games are sad so we've got titans chiefs in the AFC impacts forty niners in the NFC although we didn't mention before we got there. What did you think of Troy Aikman even during the Jimmy announcement about that was very genuine? you know I mean just a moment that You know the Kodak Moment for lack of a better term but you know it was very appropriate You know that he let his emotions you no be shown to a certain degree I think people will Embrace him for that You know it certainly Demonstrates that they had a I think a very special relationship And so I was. I was very You know I was I was also you know maybe a little emotional. Don't do and I saw that but it was. I think a good moment for for football and a good moment for Jimmy Johnson and Troy all three of saint time. I think that's one of those things things that just tugs at you as a sports fan as a cowboys fan. In this instance there are times where you get emotional. I'm not trying to put this in that category but to me it feels. The moment felt a lot because that was a really powerful. Just still frame of Troy if felt like when Roger Staubach doc retired and he talked about Tom Landry and he welled up and he talked about a man in a funny hat. Looked like that you know what I mean like. There's the same sort of love and respect which was cool but anyways so choi will be calling niners packers Who who do you think wins two games last that I? Yeah One last thing on Detroit thing I to me the last thing I was gonna say is it just seemed also that you know maybe you know. He had somewhat lobbied for Jimmy with some of the sports writers. You know some of them you know so this was like okay. You know these guys you know and again. I'm just speculating. But he wanted like you could tell he was invested in them. He wanted it in not that work for it. Yeah and and not that the pride like oh my work paid off like it was pried like this is. Why did that work because he deserves? That was the motion exactly. Yeah no and I kind of felt like there was a little bit of that too. You know like wow. I'm really glad that you know this is happening for Jimmy. And you know everything that a lot of us have have tried to you know portray to others about him as finally come full circle for him so yeah but yeah so You know of the Next week game forty niners and And packers well. You know you and I watched the first time they played earlier. This season in In Boston Boston At a Chili's restaurant after the The cowboys that loss to the Patriots. So we watched that game and and it wasn't much of a game there wasn't much contest it was You know forty niners really just rolling over the packers and I'm not going to go out and predict that you know both teams things You know have matured and done a lot of things since then You Know I. I was impressed with the third down. Conversions tonight by the packers packers. I thought the SEAHAWKS You know could have control. That batter came. You know some of these times some of these things you just say..

"If you want some more information Maurice Linguist from my Alma Mater. Maurice expected to be the Dallas Cowboys. Secondary Coach under Mike McCarthy. This past weekend was the first one with Mike McCarthy as the team's head coach and it was also reported on Sunday afternoon that is expected to be. The team's quarterbacks coach is there reported reported moving on from John Kidnapped and Doug obviously was the team's tight ends coach which means that could be Jason. Witten job I don't know that's you. You know speculation for another day like I said I want this episode to be what it's about and that's about Jimmy Johnson. The former Dallas cowboys head coach the two time superbowl winner. It was announced announced on Sunday is part of the pro. Football Hall of Fame Centennial. Class of two thousand and twenty and it is such fantastic news and and to discuss all of this. We brought an very special guest none other than my dad Top Jimmy we talk his career talking to being a hall of Famer on and on and on and on so let's not waste any time here. He is my dad talking. Jimmy Johnson Hall of Famer here on coaching pleased to be joined now by a very very very very special guest. You ask for them all the time here. He is not in person will reporting over the phone peasants the one and only my best friend. Your Best Friend Dan my Dad Papa Ocho what is up my dude. Hey how are you happy to be here. I'm doing well. We don't record a lot like this Is it strange like do you feel we're not being in my office. It's a little awkward but I think I can manage. Yeah and you will be here For at least one show After the Super Bowl right or before the super bowl or any way to around superbowl time. So we'll have a live recorded or impersonal episode coming at them but we had to get an episode now. Because I tweeted this. Obviously everybody listening. Listening knows that Jimmy Johnson was announced as the three hundred twentieth member of the Hall of fame by the way. Very cool for you in the to share and talk about because we were at Super Bowl fifty one and the twenty eight to three. and He's number three hundred twenty eight but I tweeted this I. I'm thirty years old. Is I turned thirty in October. And I look a lot of people are cowboys fans because like for me you know. My Dad was a cowboys fan. You know you raise me that way. And we've shared a lot of great times and as well watching in whatever but a large reason that so many people my age my generation became came cowboys. Fans was because of what Jimmy Johnson did and so I could think of nobody else. I would rather have the sort of post announcement talk with Jimmy. Johnson is a pro football hall of Famer. What do you think about while I'm thrilled? That it Jimmy was Recognizing that manner I. It's come full circle. I mean you know I I. There's a part of me to believe that the triplets wouldn't have gotten you know the the amount of recognition and all the success they had without the Fabulous coaching that. They had by By Jimmy Johnson Obviously you know. They had a lot of talent to you. Know to begin with but Jimmy was The guy that put it all together you know. Put all the pieces of the puzzle together. made the Chemistry come together you know. And you know his psychology major major really came into full effect when he did that with the triplets on the other members of the nineties cowboys. you know so. Yeah Yeah I think it's very very exciting. You know that You know if if they're in the hall of fame you know he and Jerry's in the hall of fame you know Jimmy. Certainly Belongs along that same classification in that same same accolades that they've received because he was part of that nucleus. Ah The prime. We'll get to Jerry and a little bit and there is a bit of a you know an elephant in the room but there's an elephant in the room sort of wrinkle wrinkled at this but I mentioned that you know people my age kind of became cowboys fans to some degree or at least their fandom was all the more strengthened by Jimmy and this is a topic for another day. But you and I've talked about this I mean I don't know that the cowboys I mean. They're America's doom not trying to take away from that but I don't know that they become. I'm this global brand. If they have that decade of success in any other decade I think the fact that I mean. You know better than I. You know in the nineties like the the American economy booms you know what I mean like. It's this you know. It's the the birth of the Internet early on in its very I don't WanNa say delicate but very precarious decade in United States history. And so the you know. The country took off in a different way and so to have the cowboys do what they did in this really blitz and glamorous sway really added to the legend of it. All I mean you obviously you know where a cowboys fan for a long time before that. But what did he do for you. How did you know what what was that? Like to to live and experience. And I mean I know you you and Uncle Mandy and uncle George and everybody those characters that Ocho listeners don't necessarily know about but I mean you you had some great times. I mean in in a way that you know people might didn't so what. What was that like just to live experience on? What did it do for your fan? Well you know I think that You know everybody At the time had the utmost respect for Coach Tom Landry Hendry and You know we had come to believe in him. He had brought an enormous amount of success to the cowboys and You know so. Yeah I mean. Everybody respected him as the elder statesman. And you know I think when When Jerry took over the team and brought not in Jimmy I mean there was an initial Maybe negative reaction to that partly because of maybe a little bit of the disrespect respect that was shown to To Tom Landry But you know the way that I think Jimmy was able to have the team embrace him immediately and you know the very very contrast contrasted style that he had from Tom. Tom Landry You know just made us hard to believe you know that there could be more success in Dallas You know in the very near future and as you know I think they started out once one in sixteen His very first season they did for me. Yeah and and and You know so. We're like wow you know what just happened and here and You know and then. That's when the Herschel Walker Trade Came about and and You know they were able to put together The trade for that that ended up getting those the pig for Amit and You know in three years later you you know we're super bowl champions than you know so yeah it was. It was a very trying time for those first couple of years. But you you know Jimmy never relented you know his his Coaching style is Method of of being You know a fair yet berry assertive assertive disciplinarian type of coach. You know proved to be very very successful. The players love him. You know even though he was extremely you know disciplined and and Very little tolerance. I recall that you know he He cut a one of the running back named Kurban Richards after he fumbled twice in the game meaningless game in. I mean to to be exactly but you know but you know and some people said he made an example out of him. But you know I think it could have been anybody I really do. Feel that way and You know he just had to demonstrate that You know there was a certain Red Line that you didn't cross a lot of variables involved in the operation and the business and the end of the game and the team and you know he You know was very very You know just upfront about it. I mean you know you know the thing that he did to solidify you know the The fans following him. You know things like you know when he said You know the the Championship in the nineties. Yeah three inch spoiled lettuce. You can put that in three inch bold letters we will win this game and you know I mean that day I mean I think that's one of the you know the the most Euphoria I've ever self as a cowboys fan. When he said that? Because we're win or lose. You just felt good that you had a coach you know. Oh that was You know using every bit of his you know Ed's in in terms of philosophical to try to You you know when one pump his team up and also intimidate the other guys to the point that you know. Maybe they'd be. You know anger that they go in and start making mistakes which they did. YEA GOTTA no penalty to start the game like before kick-off. Yeah Yeah I mean you know He. He pioneered those kinds of things. You know to get into other people's heads And so you know that's That's the type of thing that Jimmy brought to the game To the team the organization that you know we just haven't seen anything in close since then and you know you know being very honest I've since we've changed coaches after him I've always had that You know maybe subliminal fault that you know maybe we could get Jimmy bag but yeah I recognized. It's past his time now so I didn't even cross my mind this week anymore but in previous times and I think I shared that were the the I would say man. It'd be awesome if they'd get Jimmy back but but no I mean he was the one of a kind was unique and in many aspects aspects and You know I can't wait to see you know his Acceptance Speech and dancing. I agree you're right. I think what ask what super awesome about Jimmy. Johnson is that there's this law and there's there's a lawyer for check mall and there's a lawyer for Bill Walsh you know in these. He's like you know they're these gigantic figures that were super respected in these brilliant men. That did all these crazy things. Dramatically not Jimmy but but Jimmy was just this like I mean this bad ass. You know this I'm GonNa drop them on the table. You know what I mean like in in that was a really Character that was a new sort of character I think for the NFL And you can pick you mentioned the Carbon Richard Story There's also the the asthma tests in the asthma field legend. And I think the best sort of like Jimmy's story is the three inch four letters but that would never happened today. Just because coaches are so stoic. You know what I mean like they hate talking as is the the best part about that story is. It wasn't like you know. Jimmy said you know after practice when the media was around he called into a radio show you know he called in because he was yeah. He was hired of of hearing even the suggestion suggestion that his team wasn't going to just whip ass in like I think that that hunger that aggression I mean like now people say they like oh I want an aggressive coach like the kind of guy that will go for like on fourth and three. That was Jimmy before you know that sort of wave cool. Yeah exactly and you know to to peel that onion back a little bit the title game. You know three interesting. He didn't do that. You know look I want to get your thoughts on the toddler games a a little bit. But he didn't do that against the two thousand nine hundred Tennessee. Titans led by Ryan Tannehill. He did that against Steve Young. And Jerry Rice. You know like the the a Santa Mighty San Francisco is already beat him the year prior. But you know he did that. A against a a Bee's that wanted to come in their house house in get revenge and he just said you know what I'm good you know. There's a lot of quotes he's got he's got the one about you. Know if you swing it a guerilla You don't swing it in lightly you hit him with everything you got which I think was their mentality but you know some. We haven't even mentioned. I think you know that I don't want to say he deserves credit for as we're way to put it but Jimmy coined how about them cowboys. And you know that's the I'm not saying like put him in the hall of fame for that but that that's just what makes them special the cowboys fans. You know what I mean. Yeah and you know you hear every Many many teams many different sports at many different levels you that same term that he coined they'll Kansas J.. Exciting them whatever. Even how about them apples in one of the movies he's in so yeah but But no I mean and I fully expect that him to interject that phrase That that that term that he coined in some part of you might end this hall of fame speech with that and that would be phenomenal but But yeah no I mean you know one of the the other things. I remember vividly. was you know the the rivalry ettelaat rivals with the NFC's but the one was Buddy Ryan and the eagles was telling US unbelievable. That was fish. I mean you know. And and he brought that To that rivalry because before then it was a very respectful..
