"Do some exactly. Want to be mister Owens of Parker? He's like, oberyn was not being a sir. Uh uh. In that moment, right? Like when that happened, Kim monkey going along with them not letting Joe Biden in there, not being a male. Just like she wouldn't be in a man when she put her hands on the referee. You know what I'm saying? And I show you she miss Kim and whatever little child she from. I heard black person call her miss Kim. The chief from that kind of country. But in the end, the grown-ups need to be the grown-ups, and we need to stop asking for children to carry on the fights for our baggage in our interests at the expense of honestly. Look, this next year for her, these next couple of years have a long year because I think she get the cove a year back, I don't remember exactly how it goes. But this is probably as famous as she's ever going to be and might be as much money as she ever makes and all of these things. But it's also the time of your life that's supposed to be the best. And so I hope that in this that some better things come out of it 'cause none of this, it ain't her fault that all of this turned into woody turned into. It's not. Now all you can do is navigate it and hope that the grown-ups behave like grown-ups.

"Yeah, so I got two things I want to have happen in the west also. Well, basically just one. I would like to mavericks to do just enough to hop into that ten spot to get into the play in and I want the thunder out because though the odds are long, the possibility of the thumb to get in big Vic really excites me. If they had big Vic and shit aw dude man tall, skinny kids, the idols that they would have, you know what I'm saying? I would love that. But I also want this Dallas thing to go on just a little while longer so that if slash wait it falls apart, we're all watching. I just want to see this like I was watching get up before we came in to do the show. And. They're talking about Luca and Cuban did depress availability on Wednesday where we tried to keep Jalen Brunson, but all of this stuff explaining everything they did not go right and how they've got to earn wanting Lucca to come back. And I'm looking at this and I feel like Luke and mavericks, what if they all need to get together at the end of this season and be like, bro, I see where this is going, you see where this is going. Where you want to go. Let's figure something out, 'cause my prognostication on happy endings in these things is not necessarily the best, right? I'm still not sure what this Kyrie thing is ultimately going to be, though it sounds like Dallas might be dumb enough to sign them. But the Luca thing, there's no room for this to improve, I don't think. I mean, I mean, they fail. So first, OKC, with big Vic would be fun, not just because of pairing them up with another big skinny, super athlete, but they got SGA and Jalen Williams. Like, they got, they got young bodies that can play.

I like most of my job is a pretty good job, so I like it. Most of the time. But I don't miss it while I'm gone. But I miss doing this. It was one of the things that is probably the best thing that I do, and also probably because it's the easiest and most fun thing that I do regularly, but yeah, I'm happy to be back.

I do bad shit occasionally, and you know when I don't, when I don't promote myself, 'cause I ain't great. I only promote the shit that's good. I think I'll be lying to you, because you ain't stupid. You turn it on, and you know that that's what she was good? She wasn't. Look here, was they saying she would go be here. I was just like, I thought about a couple things.

"Bomani Jones. Thanks for listening wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for watching us all YouTube, rate us review us, give us 5 stars. You only give us four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater. It is Fox word Friday Dominique foxworth, what's going on? And I woke up this morning. Got yourself a gun. You got yourself up. Oh, how do you know that's what you even gonna go to? I thought I was, I thought I was being funny. Nah, I honestly knew where you were gonna end up with it. I figured it out. I've talked to you enough, that if I say gotcha yourself, yeah. So man, Sean Kemp, bro, what is, what is going on? Yo, if we go talk about Lamar Jackson a couple other things down to pipe. But I think the first thing that we need to start with, again, keeping in mind at this point. If you were born the day, Sean Kemp was drafted, you are 32 years old now, right? Which is to say there are a lot of you that don't really get like why we here. Okay? Like why we care about this? So one thing that I think our current NBA situation kind of lacks is Sean kelp types, right? And what I mean by that is Sean Kemp is what I call and I've said this about a few guys in football. I don't know if you are when I talked about this, but I can't Newton is an example for me. Cam Newton is not a pro football Hall of Fame. But Cam Newton is what I would call a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, right? Which is to say Guns N' Roses can get into The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on the strip of one out, right? Lord hill can still sell out spots on the strength of one album. A Sean Kemp did not have the one album, but baby he had hit hits. Yeah, hit dog. His single catalog, you got some album tracks, like Sean Kemp. I think the best way that I could put this is for those of you who were not around for the Shaw at camp because I even found the video doesn't really do justice. Sean Kemp was like, take what you think of Zion, as like your dream of how you want Zion to play all the time. Except Zion is like 16, two 50 at a time where they didn't really make 6 ten, two 50 like that, just all ups and strength.

"Man worth that. That's gross and weird. Well, I'm glad we went with what we did. But I didn't even think about not changing my name because I had been teaching, you know, for prior to us getting married. And I would just be so confused at conferences. And obviously there are lots of different reasons why children or by guardians, even might have the different last name than their kids. But so I'd be like, you know what, I want my teachers to easily say this email coming from Ashley foxworth is related to her daughter, Avery foxworth, or a her son, deck, my fox, you know, which is a silly reason. Actually, I know someone how about this. I know someone recently knew who had the most beautiful baby. And the last name, it's like hyphenated in the woman's name comes last. So ultimately, if a name gets dropped, like oftentimes the ones who say yes and actually it's not, it may not even be hyphen that might be like the man's name is in the middle. Like for our son, whose middle name is my maiden name, his middle name is Manu. But it might be like that situation and her name is last. I was like, you go, girl. It's strategic. How about that? I don't know if you have roses and thorns. I do. But I have my own. Okay, go ahead. I have some. No, no, no. I mean, I don't have my rose for you as you're always amazing. And I think I talked about this a little bit last week about how you are coming into a family matriarch role. It's very early. Call me big mama. Yeah, that's the one thing that I knew you're not going to like about it is because I feel like and I thought I said that last week and I couldn't even bear to get it out my lips. Like I was also thinking that I'm the perfect stereotypical curmudgeonly old man like I can envision myself 20 years from now sitting.

"You have to learn it themselves and the low risk way is the only way I can think of is you gotta they gotta see it. I don't know, I might read this job a rat story to my ten year old when he get home. It's great to him with no comment. I'm just gonna read it to him. And see what he gotta say about it 'cause I know if you know at some point we gonna have this where my kids gonna bring home people that I'm like nah or they're gonna do some stuff where I'm like nah, that's stupid and me saying no, that's stupid ain't gonna be enough. It may not be enough, I guess. Gotta be fair. Me and you grew up in a slightly different way than your wife. I grew up class wise closer to your wife, but in terms of the actual people I grew up around, it's a little closer to you. That boy would break it out of the people Ho. What he might bring hold that I'm looking forward to is the first time he bring home some lady with a tetra or Penta syllabic name. I think if he more likely, he crossed the aisle, that would be like that time my brother K hole with a ugly day Joe look a lodger. I popped out of her head like where have I gone wrong? She was cool to see. The thing about my wife's family that I think throws people is like, tell them that my wife went to private school for much of their life and she went to a fancy law school and is very smart and her parents adopters and her aunts and uncles and lawyers and their black and D.C., however, her grandfather was the numbers runner. And that's how everyone got to get into. Oh, they like the kennedys. So there is an all family functions. Everything makes it. Your wife, I didn't fully understand. It all makes sense. Oh, yeah, yeah. Yeah. There's a connection whereas my connection is a lot closer. We just, my people weren't as good as at crime as her people. They weren't as good as crumb. My people got caught, it got locked up. It was low level. And me making some football money is made a little different for the people closest to me. Oh, no, we all good. I didn't realize your wife was actually calling out, you know what I'm saying? Okay. It's a little different. It's a little different. So yeah, we a lot closer to the element. As all black people are, we are just 1° away from the element at all times, no matter how successful you are, 1° away. That is Dominique Fox work.

"My name is bomani Jones. Thanks for listening wherever you get your podcasts. Thanks for watching us all YouTube, rate us review us, give us 5 stars. You only give us four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater. It is Fox word Friday, Dominique foxworth, what's going on? Man, it's supposed to be a slow period right now. I feel like we got a ton of stuff to get through. Oh yeah, no, I'll give this to the NBA. Once they decided to start the season earlier, that meant that after the all star break, there was only 20 games left. So we don't get that dragon part of the season. You know, like the dog days in baseball, the July and August, the NBA got rid of those. They like odor dog days, y'all like go be watching no way, y'all gonna be on his football. Okay, cool. We'll come back and we'll be rip roaring to go. And actually, as we, people don't know, being you get to hear what we gonna talk about today. Oh, well, we'll start with what we'll go to south Adele's. But I didn't even tell you, let's go talk about this, but were you watching that game on Sunday with LeBron got hurt? Yeah. Okay, I said on Twitter, I was like two things. One, he's an alien for finishing that game. B he's clearly a human, because he ain't playing again this year. I don't think. Based on what they were saying and everything else, and it was the dreaded non contact injury. LeBron has only played 60 games in Los Angeles that bubble year and we don't know if he plays 60 games that year if they don't get three months off and then resumed season without having to travel. And I bring that up because it's something I've talked about for the longest. He is as incredible as any 38 year old has ever been. He is certainly as incredible as any 20 year vet has ever been, but them cats don't be retiring 'cause they can't play anymore when they can play. They be retiring because they can't play anymore 'cause they can't. You know what I mean? 'cause they physically can't get out there. You go back there and people talk about, oh, Jordan went to wizards. Jordan was balling with the wizards. Like, he wasn't bald in like 1988 with the wizards, but he was balling except old and hurt. And when LeBron, it's been hurt every year, it has been nothing major, right? Like if I'm not mistaken LeBron is only undergone anesthetic in his life to have his wisdom teeth removed, right? And that's a big thing. I told you about that when I met Larry Fitzgerald to Acosta, and someone was like, yo Larry, how many surgeries have you here? And he's like zero. That's a lot of dmarc kin with those super duper top notch athletes is literally never having to have surgery. So he gets all these little things, but little things when you hold a little. Yeah, I heard my reaction to the LeBron stuff is like immediate emotional and selfish, like I want more LeBron, but it's been 20 years. We probably got ten more years of LeBron peak level LeBron than any of us should have gotten.

So Dominique, I do want to start here, I think it's appropriate only to start here with a quiz, do you remember your combine numbers? Because I have them in front of me right now. Do you have in your memory banks, like the actual precise results that you got for all of these tests you took? I do remember that I think I was in the top 5 for cornerbacks, which puts you in a top 5 for everybody for just about every ability that they tested. I know my vert was like 42 or 40, 41, 41 on the vert and a 40 time was four three 5. Four three four. Okay. I mean, it's just stupid. These are stupid numbers Dominique. Yeah. What was the broad jump? Do you remember? One 25. Yeah, that's a lot of inches. That's a real broad matter. Every inch matters. It's not the motion of the ocean. It is not the motion, don't believe what they tell you. But these numbers are like, you know, I mean, at an NBA level vertical leap. And to be clear, NBA verts, not true verts. They allow drop step at the NBA combine. No drop stepping NFL. My vert is better. Give me a drop step. I might hit 55. I'm Vince Carter out there thing. So we found some video of you running the 40. Oh, I remember that video, my shirt didn't fit. I was sexy as hell, the muscles was peeking out. No shorts on. Medium energy on the shirt. You got a great taste of the quads and everything else. Just compression shorts, blazing. Dominique foxworth from Maryland. Three year starter at Maryland, all ACC. It looks pretty good. I thought he came out of there low and hard, especially those first ten yards looked excellent. Unofficially 4.41. Unofficially, 4.41, but officially 4.34. And that's just objectively blazingly impressive for a young Dominique foxworth, although I do want to point out here also that we did find a video of you running some drill and apparently rich eisen did not officially call you Dominique foxworth. Oh, really? Who do you call me? Dominique foxworthy. Dominique foxworthy from Maryland up next once again, he was very good in the 40 unofficially 4.54 and also a 4.47. See the combine doesn't matter. I wasn't fast enough for him to learn my name. You rich. Rich not only butchered my name, but he did what was much worse, butchered my 40 time, like get out of here. He's not around a fourth, 5. He started out by Sato's impressive and this is a four or 5. That's not impressive for a cornerback? Stop it. What did you do to prepare for all of this Dominique? Because I know when I study for a test, like I'm going in the library for a summer and I'm just living there and it's sad. I'm depressed. But this, to prepare for this particular event, what did you do? I mean, it's the same thing and just my library was a training facility in paramus, New Jersey. My senior year, we weren't good, so there was no bowl game, so I spent several months getting ready for the combine there, and we would work out in the morning, take a nap, watch more, work out in the afternoon. Eat in the little hotel and whatever. That was just it for several months. But in terms of like what you knew you had to do, how did you learn that? Did you go and hire somebody? Is it standard to go and hire like a special coach? How does the wisdom of how to ace this test get sort of transferred to you? So the agents normally have either they have their own training facility or have some relationship with a training facility. So that's why I went and it was helpful to go there because the whole class in that particular agency kind of works out together. I was there with Fabian Washington was a first round corner that went. And I think he broke the record for the 40 times. So while I was blazing fast running four threes, he was running four twos next to me all day, so trust me. I did not enter the combine with a whole bunch of confidence. I love that. I love that you ace this test or you think you do and then the guy next to you is like, man, congrats on that B plus. Fabian was definitely messing up the curve. We really ruined in the curve for the rest of us. And so did you know which measurables were most crucial? Did you have a sense of that? And what was the logic there as you understood it? Different positions, different things matter for different positions. And football is such a specialized sport. They don't care how much you bench press if you're a cornerback. And so I was pretty strong, but I didn't train for the bench press. 14 is the number you got. Much less than I was doing when I was at Maryland. I could do more, but I was like, get over ten. That's all that matters. So the other things like vertical leap and broad jump, you know that it's not about you actually jumping because when do you do a broad jump in a football game? It's about demonstrating some power. All the agility stuff, the shuttles, all that stuff is important because it's like sudden change direction is important to cornerback. So I think it matters a lot for a cornerback to ace all the on the field stuff because like it translates, but they could also just watch all the four years of footage that I put up in Maryland and decide, which I think is what they did in the end anyway. Well, that's my question, right? You have all of these tests that you're taking and you're doing real well, but all of that, you're telling me, it also is just obvious just on tape. And so did all of this feel kind of silly on that level then? To be honest, it feels so important and for some players it is, but it's also not that important and you don't really know if you're that player or not when you hate there, just like I have to do well because nothing good comes of me not doing well, so I have to do well. But if you run really fast, but your tape is bad, no one cares. If your tape is really good and you're slow, there are people who still interested in you, but it's so rare that you come in with guys who are not like first round picks, then you leave the combine and they do become first round type talents. I feel like DK Metcalf who ended up not getting in the first round. He really benefited from the combine, but it's so rare that that happens that people drop out of the first round or enter the first round because of the combined performance. But the most important thing is the thing that they probably have no ability to test is like, even though they do psyche valves, like really, it's what's inside that counts. Wow. Wow, that's inspirational.

"So if you're a certain kind of sports sicko, this week is wildly exciting. It's basically a holiday in and of itself. Because the NFL combine is about to begin tomorrow. And it is a meat market that I believe must be understood from the inside out. And so what we're bringing you today is one of our favorite episodes. It stars my good friend and occasional nemesis, Dominique foxworth. Who tells us what it was like to go through it. And to benefit from it, and how to game the system. And so, yes, it is Monday, February 27th. This is Dominique and me, hi, I'm Pablo. And yeah, this is ESPN daily. So Dominique, what was your AOL screen name again? NFL bound 36. Yeah, it's a miracle, honestly, that we're Friends. Because my screen name was Yoda followed by 6 numbers. And those numbers were like reference to X-Men comic books. I love X-Men growing up. So, I mean, I just also had a goal and that was it. No, you didn't just have a goal and that was it. You're one of these maniacs who had a dream. And then lived that dream. And so I have this time machine that I need you to jump into with me, and I'm setting the date to February 2005. Be careful, don't go back too far because we might not be safe. It was the NFL combine. It's Indianapolis. You're coming off your senior season as a defensive back and university of Maryland. How nervous were you before you head into this building where all of this seems to be on the line? Your whole career, your dream. Watching me throw up might have made you think I was nervous. However, wait. At what point did the vomit that definitely was not a symptom of nervousness come in? I know that sounds absurd, but it was not a symptom of nervousness. It was because I was a 175 pounds, and I needed them to think I was as heavy as possible. So I drank enough water to get over one 80. Then I went to the bathroom and was all over the place. Along with my brethren, I wasn't the only one who was tricking people with water weight or trying to trick people with water weight. You describing like what I imagined something between like a boxer and also like a supermodel. No, we're going to other way though. I feel like boxers in supermodels are trying to trick their way down. Might throw up was not self induced. I could not hold that much water in my body. Like the plan wasn't drink enough water tricked them, then throw it up. The plan was drink enough water to trick them, then who the hell knows after that? In this might make you feel great. All water. If I would have put it in a glass, could have handed it to somebody, named her. Why is this water so warm? Don't worry about it. Have a sip. Beyond the fact that gosh, that is disgusting. Is the fact that you are trying to trick people though? I mean, that seems to be part of it, right? Like you are trying to be the best self that you Dominique foxworth NFL prospect had ever been. You're trying to be the best version of a football player because my best self is much more like evolved and interested in different things than the best version of myself that I presented to them. So during psych evals during interviews with teams, during all those things, again, still trying to trick them. Trying to trick them into believing that nothing matters more to me in this life than throwing my head into other people's heads for you. I'm explaining it to people who haven't been there, but have you been to a job interview and they ask you like, what's your worst quality? You know what the answer is supposed to be? I care about work too much. Yes, exactly. So the combine is one big demonstration of us caring about work too much. For some of us, it's true. For most of us, it is not, but we want you to think so until

"For watching us on YouTube, great us review us. Give us 5 stars. You only give us four stars. I'm inclined to believe you are hater. It is Fox word Friday, Dominique foxworth, what's going on? Not in happy to be here, appreciate you and Adi and Parker. Making it work for me. I'm sorry about that. Yeah, man. We already crazy. We all do it all these different jobs, everything else. I can't imagine like, do you use a calendar now? Yeah, I do. It was so it was a death in the family, just caused everything to turn upside down. And so I was laughing with Adi before we started about my wife is a wartime general. And it's like, if you've met her, what you have, you spend enough time around, like, you don't think of her as that type of person, like she's kind of bubbly and like. Oh no, no, no, no, no, no. So when it's funny because when things when there's chaos or crisis, she snaps into it. It's like, this is what she been waiting for. And so then when something happens, she's the one who was taking care of all the responsibilities and telling everybody else what they have to do. So I got my Martian orders for this morning, which included taking care of other people's kids, picking up stuff, going here, going there, and I started execute my marching orders there. You text me like, you good? Oh, my bad. We're in a war right now, and the general told me to take care of business. But let me tell you this. I do immediately, but I did hear nothing back. I was like, oh, something's going on. What are those? We think Dominique laid up on the penthouse suite at a hotel, right? We were like, oh, I hope Dominique's cool. But now, I have people that I work with in Friends where when I don't hear from, I'm concerned for different reasons.

"Thanks for watching us on YouTube, break us, review us. Give us 5 stars. You only give us four stars, I'm inclined to believe you are a hater. It is Fox word Friday Dominique foxworth was going on. Off season is here. I never really the off season. I mean, it should be. I don't know if other people agree with this, but I like to miss stuff. So I like the yearn. That makes it, that makes it better. I'm happy to lean in on basketball, get away from football, and then get excited when it's July and we like, oh, the smell of the grass. My personal feeling, huh? I just too much of a good thing is a real thing in my world. No, that's one thing about the NBA and shout out to New York City outside with these sirens. Sorry, folks, I don't feel like stopping. We normally like stop down with the sirens start covering the background, say no studio is my house. Anyway, the NBA got two months where it's gone, right? They keep trying to keep this thing around. Some of the league. I mean, if you want to go, it's cool, right? But they give you a little time to act like it ain't there. Baseball when it goes away, it goes away. The NFL is like, no, I'm right cheer dog. I mean, it's one of the drawbacks, one of the less painful drawbacks of capitalism is there is no roof. There is no satisfying them. It's like we want more days, more games, dominate more of the calendar, the more of your money, more and more and more, like, they just run a mom and pop. A $25 billion mom and pop. Yeah, let's keep these lights on, let's chill out. People like us and let's just keep it spinning. You don't have to own every single month every holiday, every off season story. It's a lot. Let a brother yearn. Yeah, they ain't never got enough money, boy. Ever, ever, ever. Like, that's the wildest thing to me when I look at people, like who get to that point in life, and they're still never enough money. I mean, I mean, obviously it's not about the money at a certain point. It's about, I mean, I'm sure I feel like we might have talked about the studies that plenty of studies out there that say that like money does buy you happiness up to a certain point and it's like low. One comma, you know, then you get to the two comma area and some of these fools out here with three commas in digits afterwards and still out here trying to make investments and buy more stuff. I guess you gotta find purpose in life and this is what passes for purpose. That's the thing like the wildest thing, this is what passes for purpose. I don't get it, man. We talked about just a bunch of what we talk about Tom Brady. It's like, I ain't built like that. And it's okay.
"foxworth" Discussed on The Rich Eisen Show
"You have to talk to the players and talk to the coaches talk to your colleagues. You have to watch the tv copies of the game and watch the The the all twenty two copy of the game and just try to consume as much as possible. And what i do that's best is have conversations get group chats going because that's where the best ideas come up when you're clashing your theories up against other people's series and you can come up with some new thought because that's the most sounding caught i think is if you are really into football. You're into football enough to to watch shows or listen to two. I'm radio shows about football. You're probably also following everyone on twitter and have your own opinion. So it's so hard. Sometimes i think to have some novel thought or to find a way to deliver the information in a fun and entertaining way. That's the challenge. I think going forward is finding ways to bring up new stuff and engaged viewers so it's own going And that's i kind of look forward to it. Honestly when everyone has all information finding a way to make my information a little bit better or a little bit more understandable you're spot on and the approach and you agree with me that one of the most overused and ridiculous phrases in an of sports media is we don't talk enough about all we do this plenty of talk. We talked plenty about. We talk about the titans. We talked about the bucks who talk about the panthers and plenty of everybody talked about. Yeah you're right. I mean to be fair. We probably talked too much about all of this stuff possible to say we don't talk about maybe climate change. We don't talk talk. Talk enough about lamar jackson for mvp. Guess we do. There's entire podcasts. About it yeah. We talked too much about everything. So yeah the judge the the actual thing that we do not talk enough about and if you found that you're not going to say we don't talk enough about it you just gotta drop that idea and then people are going to be like. Wow that's interesting. I liked seeing you talk about some other stuff. Besides football on the espy's red carpet the other night and i hope. Espn continues to find those pockets. Where you get to go do your thing man. Because i must have been a lot of fun i always great thank you. How many foxworth joins the show. We'll talk to you soon. Thanks so much for check in foxworth. Play in the nfl. There's a great job for the undefeated. I'm glad he agrees with me. We don't talk enough about insert.

How the Aaron Rodgers-Packers Drama Will Likely End
"Strikes out. looking yankee. Third base coach. Phil nevin was irate. Got thrown out either way. We go to extras tied at four top. Ten at fluey sesa during the pitching and a three to count. That's called the ball. And gary sanchez can't believe it. The yankees are frustrated. And then they would like this. Even last two onto that zander bogart's a basic both run score and the red sox winning six four completing the sweep again. It's the first time. The red sox walk into yankee stadium and leave with a sweep in a decade prior to this series. Boston lost eleven straight away games against the bombers. Moreover the red sox have now won five straight extra inning games at yankee stadium. We'll talk more about that later. Meanwhile now let's talk about this. Tomorrow is a significant day. In the development of the aaron rodgers sodden it is the first of three consecutive days of packers mandatory minicamp in his monthly column. Packers president. Mark murphy at this to say regarding the impact of the predicament. Quote the situation. We face with aaron rodgers has divided our fan base the emails and letters that i received reflect. This fact is. I wrote here last month. We remain committed to resolving things with aaron wanting to be our quarterback in twenty twenty one and beyond working to resolve the situation and realize that the less votes sides say publicly. The better you said that again. Dominic foxworth in his monthly column. So what question media jumps to your mind. A why the hell is mark. Berkeley a monthly column. Like who cares. And also i mean can. We do a foia request on his emails. Because i'm pretty sure there is. Nobody emailing him. Angry about aaron rodgers. There is no divide. There's no fans like we don't want aaron back like he's trying to create this this friction that doesn't exist and it seems

"Be colts we love goats stuff right. I go by ticket to go here. How pay for the book might might go pay to watch the movie battle that you mean that. Necessarily i think you would absolutely pay to go. Listen to somebody. Talk when i wouldn't do it on a friday. I've saying this if you tell me. Oh friday night. I could pay fifty to go see coats. I pay fifty to go see. Addison park i am paying fitted nosy. Andy that's all. I'm say i understand. I agree but i. I mean i guess i'm defending myself. Because i have paid what we had to pay. But i think i bought something to pay fundraiser money to go see coats. Talk at a church in dc and twenty look different to go see talk and neither of those experienced what i say. We're fun but they were enriching. Guess but you but yeah we talk about some different. Yeah indiana on friday as my point exactly. Both of them. I wednesday. Yeah all these things are supposed to be fun. We talk about your chefs. The as much as i didn't like duke. Duke made it more fun right there. Presence made it more fun and we have so few people so few things now that just make it more fun thing about the nets they know we gotta raptors so like the nets. It's so wild that they're so good and it's no fun. They don't even look like they're having fun they don't give you maybe just because it's too easy right. They don't even give themselves enthusiastic high fives. There's no one on that team. Even joe harris. He don't even really count as a fan favorite. You know what. I'm saying like they don't even have a fan favorite. We gotta bring the fun back. But i think it's the hyper focus on championships. They like none of this matters. None of this matters whether season was a success whether we can be happy or whether we fail. All that matters is how we doing a championship. But i do think that the great thing about villains in sports or teams that are considered villainous. Is it makes everybody care because right now. You only care about your team if you're locked in your players but if there is a team that it's okay to hate then you care about all of their games to which makes it really makes sports at its highest. I've never enjoyed watching sports. Nearly as much as i did when i was a kid because that was before it became worked for me and that was when i cared like i really really cared. Like to the point where. I'll be sad for two days if my team lost and watching those games i guess what. Gamblers part of the thrill of gambling. You have bought into this experience. And i haven't felt that for sports in a long time the closest i got to that heat year and i wasn't about my team. That was just ball. Hey y'all for them. Yes yes yes. I was all it all that was all it all now. Destroy everybody that dallas final crush me honestly man. Another fun to meet is on a year to year basis than living in dera carolina.

"Like i hated everybody had duke. Maybe it was just because it was like early stages of somebody who is just like a sharp shooter. But i remember like in alaska assassin and not really like it anybody else but i think also what added to. This was the type of black players that they had like what people thought of them. Because i grant hill was the guy and grant hill daddy. He ain't no softie like he's not the wind that he was outspoken football player. Yeah but he went yale. Yeah i know. I know but still i guess grant hill was like well. You gotta be that type of black person and maybe i was closer to the image of a black person. But that's not what. I wanted to be a fire that wanted to be jalen rose. I wanted to be a guy who's like tough and like wars black socks and baggy clothes. You didn't want to be the guy who showed up to school with a sport coat. Right poor grade. He'll he just picked razzano now and he cares that to lying. It's still not why. I'll be talking about me like that. Man i just. I just be out here. Who but i was dunkin that y'all do but that ninety nine teen you wouldn't say that about ill bred. You wouldn't say that about mcgee you and you say that about care. Well you might say about shame. Betteate there's a little bit of a different situation. But then after they got good with those guys it went back the other way and they were out there with gregg policies. Like reading. don't cowboys read. It was cold. Right as out there would degrade policies of the world in this looked around and was like okay now we gotta go back the other way right and then it went back the other way and then it got to like it wasn't like we just getting white. Dudes is like we getting coal white news. We go to the boston celtics strategy you. Why do you go get john havlicek right. That is a strategy. I don't know if it was conscious. If you establish yourself as the place where coal wind dues go like you and then putting together a pretty good roster if you can get seventy percent of them because you're not going to get twenty five percent of the coal black dudes and so once you bring a little too many black news that you can't get the call. Why do so. It is problematic and racist and stupid for nobody reasons but it ain't dumb strategy. Not we'll think about it this way so way back in the day when notre dame was like running a big part of why they could run. It was every good catholic player in america. They got right. This is where you were going to go. If you were a good especially from up north you a good catholic football player notre dame was going to get you. There was no other place that you would think about going. I always say you can truly tell the strength of programs braying by the quality of the white dudes that they get what you start going through like. The top twenty five on rivals lists in basketball from year to year either white dudes ago in somewhere local or they go into like carolina duke. Ucla like one of those big names like that is a reflection of the strength of your brand problem is like if you get yourself to enamored with that idea. You going to be out here with some bombs right. You're going to be out here. Great policy getting dunked on every week in all that this is why duke is a duke is polarized. Nobody's polarizing anymore like there's no personality left in college basketball it didn't feel like there's no true renegade program no more. There's no programs like arkansas michigan's was talking about i know michigan got pulled probation but they weren't really renegades they would definitely kicking a different. You know what i mean like. Nothing feels like that anymore with college. Basketball and coaches at this point. Don't feel that same way. Like a coach with the magnitude of mike chef. Ski like j. j. rey got three dollars down. I didn't even realize he had three jobs. Care yeah i don't understand it. Yeah i'm trying to figure out why because like you would think that the personality would stay with the coaches in college so these places should have personalities but maybe it's just with the general corporatization of all professional sports which college sports professional. Maybe it's just everyone kind of is corporate is and it's i are. We just gonna keep it this way but you would think there is a lane there nothing kentucky. They market themselves. I mean not as a renegade program but they market themselves differently. They do about the way it was to desert champs if jay wright three my apologies there kentucky was the first to be like what to the nba. Like we're we're not. We're not pretending like this is anything else. But what's happened with college basketball. Is you develop new effector. Nobody like i learned a lot about the way that people consume sports when i worked in north carolina right like i learned how people consume college. Football 'cause i was ruined for texas while we were not we designed air. But you know what i mean but i root for texas when it was at the best attacks ten years in a row. I'm mad with any laws a mad. We didn't ask jeb ship getting like all the stuff. That's where i was. Those was seven william programs and you learn how people find the joy in a seven week program. It's a lot about the development of players and like the attachment and affection that you get from seeing a guy as a freshman and then now they're twenty two on the way out here like wow that guys run.

"Stars. I'm inclined to believe you are a hater. It is foxworth fridays. dominic foxworth was going on man. Nothing happy to be here as usual. I have ask you about. This is want to throw this out here. Briefly you man leukel house elena. I've been a luca. Hold out. Because i'm a hold out on everybody. I've been burned too many times by getting out ahead on these things right. Do that do make shots is cancelled christmas. Not a thing that makes many shots as people seem to realize that he does. If fact mate. I was actually thinking about him. And the mavericks with the whole mice jesse Retirement thing 'cause you and i grew up at a time. Where like do something. Yeah and whether you like with him. It was a completely a totally different situation. You realize though that especially in the last ten years there's a whole generation of kids that did not grow up hating do like not that every kid grew up hating do but they have not been something to test in the last ten years. It feels like everybody kind of hated do. But maybe it's just the circles that i was running in and you wanna do person. It seemed like even duke was the opposition to the fact five. And i know that that doesn't add up necessarily but when you think of what is duke basketball back. Then you think of the fab five was to antidote to it. I like found myself. Identifying with the fab. Five and also aspiring to be more culturally and socially and image wise. Even if i was not that. That's more what i wanted to be and i felt like everybody in the culture. Kinda cool cool so even if you're a middle aged dude a woman who's a teenager like it didn't feel like there was just a certain subset of the society that hated to either. You went to duke or you hate it do well. You got to forget this though. Bet did as white folks right. That's what i meant. I thought the white folks were to say like they recognize what cool is they wanted to be cool. Who but they also wanted to be. Why due to a good at basketball right like like this is what do basketball did especially in the eighties. Because i think the context that gets lost in. This is that in the nineteen eighties. College basketball was still integrating. not that. there weren't black people on every team necessarily right but the idea that somebody had a team with nothing but black players like georgetown was a revolutionary idea. Still in the one thousand nine hundred eighty s right and then that started building up and getting bigger and bigger than you started having more teams. That win at didn't really had no white dudes and then do came around and so will you say they are the antidote to the fab. Five holdup dot. Let's think about this for second. Okay this is again something you don't really have really after the mid nineties which is programs that we just readily associate with blackness or teams five that we readily associated with blackness louisville. Basketball used to be that because the thing like kentucky folks used to call them rather than the cardinals the blackbirds right because they had all these black dudes on the team that's do played against in the nineteen eighty-six championship game by. I get up to success now to think about that time and like who like the black teams. Were right not richardson. And in forty minutes a hill. John chainey and those temple teams the fab five. Un l. v. georgetown in the morning you to the matombo time in all of that stuff dog duke ran through all of them every single one of them rant and this is the same time that you got the celtics would all those dudes right and it's unc. To which like wasn't a black school but it was the black school right in tobacco triangle. Or whatever they call it. The tech triangle down there blackness is a key part of the history of north carolina. Basketball like smith vinogradi alantic coast conference and everything that comes down to doll. Dim white dude ran through all of my christian leitner. All of them shack gave it to him morning. Gave a tool larry. Johnson took tales too. But larry johnson gave a tool jamal. Mashburn gave it tool. We can go up and down the list. They gave it to any team that we will like. Yo that one's ours. I guess there's a symbolic thing that a certain group would feel really good about watching those moments especially as as we see black people kind of taken over basketball and they gave a tool with elbows like it wasn't like duke beating. You was not on some. We are going to out skill you and beat you with our superior intellect. They were like. We ain't scared y'all right by douse the big thing. Because then you can watch. Why do is play basketball against black news. It's a little fear factor that comes in there. Duquesne have none of it like the teams that do that made them famous like maytham. A program dane have none of that. They was ready to scrap it out which you right-back that's funny. 'cause you're right. They became like the private school. Hoity toity kind of like. That was the image of them but that wasn't holiday. Played at least at that time they were down for all of it and you made a point. I guess it was a wednesdays. Mondays pa you said something. You might have been quote somebody else but this reminded me of it. Is that the racism and one. Yeah you say when your friend said that is not that. The racism in boston is different is just that they fight and boston may express it is different. Like boston. isn't necessarily more racist than say dc. Where i live right now is just the people daisy right to do a little quiet. Yes whisper amongst our friends. What we're thinking in boston. Nikola tell you to your face and be fully willing right out. Black doesn't scare me not just willing to scrap it out looking to hoping yes right. There's nowhere else on earth. Or at least i can speak for the united states. There's no city that i've ever been in. I'm sure you've grown up in texas. Maybe it's different. No major metropolitan area. I've ever been in the general feeling from the white society is i. We scrap it out like that is their reputation. They're proud of. Yeah why folks in. Houston i they down to give it to you. Ain't talking about scrapping. nothing. You know what i'm saying. Why fight you can squeeze. That's the outlook on it. Also you made a good point. So like danny ferry and jay bilas sorry like those are kind of one archetype of it but they are not christian. Leitner bobby hurley. We're like you know about bobby hurley's daddy being basketball coach at saint anthony's but saint things is not was not some fancy school like prep school in jersey city that was working with some horror scrabble. Young men like it was a low. Tuition jesuit. school eventually is had to close it down because they just could not keep it open at the prices that they were charging in order to achieve their goal. And bobby hurley's daddy. When he was not coaching basketball was probation officer. Bright a christian leitner is not of duke stock for lack of a better term..
Who's Your NFL MVP?
"We're back on. Get up with a little game of either or dominic foxworth aaron rodgers or patrick. Mahomes got vp. I think after. Patrick mahomes week last week you have to give it to aaron rodgers taking the lead. He's not without weapons like a lot if you were to say. They have good running backs and their offensive line protects them quite well and obviously davante adams outstanding. But i do think that you take him off at team and they are very very different team and we already know what The chiefs look like without patrick mahomes. They're still very good if you think back to When they had more playing last year or when they had alex smith star quarterback. It's a lot of talented team. I think roger's values higher

"Dominic. It is eleven twenty seven pm eastern. And i m almost done tattooing. Cuyler murray's name using a ballpoint pen across my chest. Go forward i'm with you. Want me wait why you finish your being supportive in a way. That bill barnwell. Why usually talk do right now. Isn't i think like he would be reasonable and discourage me from doing this. But you're a far less responsible character. It feels. I'm here for a good time now longtime just today's episode so i'm fumbled fox ready for sublime tattoo it. Let's have some drinks. Whatever you wanna do. Pablo dominique. Foxworth is a writer and commentator for. Espn he played seven seasons in the nfl at defensive back and he's espn dailies. fun uncle. Well what i wanted to do before we get hammered together is talk to you about this play. That is inspired all of this ink to be spill both across my chest and across the country. Because i think it's the play of the year. I think what we saw in this bills. Cardinals game is the play of the year. And it's worth noting for posterity that the bills had just one said gave right before it happened. Josh allen had thrown. I think the pass of his life to step on digs putting buffalo thirty to twenty six with just thirty nine seconds left. The snap man looks to his left. Choirs left side. Then go to the point steph. Both touchdowns catches a touchdown pass from josh allen. What cuyler murray then does rolling left. Let's hit pause as his bomb is launched from midfield in his dangling in the air. Because you are a cornerback in your blood in your soul. How do you even approach defending this sort of a play as db well. They did it wrong. Obviously they were all going for the ball which you don't necessarily want to do in that situation and trae white one of the best corn illegal that he was trying to catch it which any coastal tell you. Bet it down. So everyone's out there trying to pad their stats in the thing that i would normally do. Not ideology happens as a particularly big receivers but tall receivers will jump well over the arms can't catch a bomb like that with one hand if you do best one for you. So that's what they did wrong going for the ball in also trying to patch stats with an interception i. I was particularly happy towards the end of that game because on get up last week. I said that stefan digs is unstoppable. Man coverage way. You shut down passing offenses in this league. We all know it. It's tight man coverage you can't do that. Against stefan digs. He has been created the most explosive plays of any receiver in this league against man coverage. So he caught the game winning touchdown man coverage also said in that same segment the andrea hopkins is the best contested cats receiver in the league. He's one of the top receivers in a league in winning contestant catches so he can get open but the scary part about him is. It doesn't matter you put it anywhere his entity even if you're close to them you're buying he might bring it down and embarrassed boom so win for me. How about that back to back dubbed up.
Super Bowl LIV Preview
"Today ahead of Super Bowl. Fifty four we break down just what to expect when the Chiesa. He's the niners square off on Sunday. I mean at times it's Thursday January thirtieth this espn daily presented by Dell small business. We are on radio row right now. ESPN daily is in the back There are radio stations across America. ESPN shows everyone is at their booths. Interviewing players analysts celebrities stars. And we've got one here with us. Dominic foxworth radio row is madness. It always ban is but it's like three hundred people gets bigger and his crazier every year. Well Luke speaking of madness this game people having trouble picking the winner I think because it truly feels like the two best teams made it to the Super Bowl. I feel like I'm just GONNA. It was Patrick Mahomes. Because it's not GonNa be fun rooting against him. We'll be more fun rooting for him than against it. Let's start by talking about patching mahomes chiefs offense versus the San Francisco Forty Forty niners defense. Which is sort of the strength on strength matchup in this game? I think history would favor San Francisco because the recent super bowls elite defenses. Have come out on top. The two thousand fifteen Denver Broncos the two thousand thirteen Seattle seahawks. We don't need to talk about what happened near later. The two thousand eight steelers ninety six packers list goes on typically offense loses according to our friends at stats and Info so the niners are the sevens team in the last fifteen years to make it to the super bowl with fifty five or more sex the other six teams all won dominique. We've seen how disruptive active this pass rushes the secondary ranks near the top of the League in stopping deep passing as the linebackers fast they can move laterally. Which is the chiefs specialty with their sweeps and screens? And all that said tell me how the chiefs offense can still beat them. I mean I have never seen the chiefs. Offense actually be stopped in any legitimate way especially with a healthy Patrick mahomes and he is healthy. And that's the difference is when we've seen great defenses. Losing the Super Bowl. It's been all time great quarterbacks Aaron Rodgers one of the people who did I did not think Patrick Mahomes is obviously in that category. As far as this town is concerned. If you were the niners defense how would you defend Patrick Mahomes this explosive chiefs passing attack. So I think you have to mix it up. That's the best thing you can do. And you also have to understand that you're not gonNA stop them. They're GONNA make plays they're going to score points. But you need to try not to give a big play. Touchdown don't stress about them getting to the red zone but play well in a red zone which the forty niners haven't been doing which is scary. It's interesting right. Yeah the the niners defense ranks. Thanks near the top in most statistical categories this year. But you're right. They have been less. Efficient are actually been below average in the red zone. They've struggled to stop the run there. which cheese haven't really been running the ball lately? They've also struggled this season against mobile quarterbacks now that requires an enormous caveat which which is that D. Ford niners pass rusher at Kwon Alexander. LINEBACKER missed a lot of games during the regular season but you look performances against Cuyler Murray Lamar Jackson Russell Wilson. You saw those were the games in which they struggled a little bit more for what we've seen from Patrick Mahomes in this postseason is is an insane ability to take off the football as the leading rusher for his team and the playoffs so far and I think that he's always been comfortable with it now that his knee is gone a little bit unhealthier. He's more apt to take off. But I think that's less scary the him getting outside of the pocket throwing like I'd almost rather him try to run it for twenty yards. Because what happens win. He buys time against the forty niners. Specifically they're not traditionally man coverage team but everything turns the main when the quarterback starts to scramble like. That's your your scramble scramble roles as a defensive back or linebackers find closest guy and stick to them everything tires demand at that point in there they just frankly. The forty niners don't have the secondary speed speed in secondary and to be fair to them. No one has a speed and a secretary to run with McColl Hartman and tyreek hill specially with the arm. That Patrick Mahomes has the the chiefs are the best st passing team in the NFL or close to it. The San Francisco Forty niners are the best at defending the NFL or close to it. Something has to give live. How do you even begin to defend all of those weapons? especially if you're the forty niners you play a pretty simple cover. Three quarters mixed in there. Do you change it up. What do you do with Rick Chairman? You have to change it up. You can't survive and covered three. Andy Reid loves four verticals and with that speed and in Patrick mahomes arm strength and accuracy. He will eat you alive in the same with four verts. Would it really comes down to is pressure which is why I think that blitzing is a smart move. You WanNa make them get rid of the ball quickly and tackle but you're not gonNa do it every single time and if you give him one opportunity unity he can make you pay so you need to get the Turner was when you get those opportunities. I think they should be more aggressive than they've been and try to force them to get rid of the ball and make tackles. Yeah if there's been a weakness in this defense dominique. It's been the other side of the field for Richard Sherman originally weatherspoon more recently. They've been playing a manual. You'll Moseley a corner. He's been better but undeniably. That's an area of the field. I think the chiefs would like to target so much of the performance of the San Francisco Secondary. It depends on the pass rush getting home and you know as a former DB pass rushes the secondary's best friend a lot of the great statistics we've seen from the secondary can dairy are the product of this pass. Rush being so explosive a pass rush that turns into a murderer's row. Win The big four Defoe Award. DEFOREST Buckner Eric Armstead and it boasts are all on the field when those four players are playing their sack ratio. The percentage of drawbacks drawbacks in which they get to the quarterback jumps from six percent to twenty three percent twenty three percent of the time. They're taking the quarterback down So Eh my question to you is they've been able to get a lot of pressure by just rushing four. Do you think that they'll have success against a chief offensive line. That's probably one of the better offensive lines they faced aced. No now. It's just for. I don't think they can be able to stop him. The more I think about it in a way that you framed that I think made it very clear my mind is I think they're going to have to flush them out. You got to get him to run with the football or get them uncomfortable to get rid of the football. Because I do think that the chiefs offense line is good enough that they're not just going to get massacred. And then you put on top of it. The chiefs offense is not one that killed by a fact like most offenses. If you second now it's second and fifteen second eighteen it's over it's third and twelve. It's over over. It's not true for the chiefs offense so they can get pressured they could get a sack. Can Patrick Mahomes can make a play in overcome that so I think that the the worst thing they could possibly do is believe leave. Their Front for is going to be enough to stop this chiefs offense so far this postseason what we've seen from Patrick. Mahomes is a record performance. I quarterback in NFL history to throw for two fifty at rush for fifty consecutive games in a postseason. Do you think he keeps it up. And that's a difficult question because yes you can think he'll play well but we're talking about playing at historic level. I think he does keep it up and I think I've said this a lot in to the point where people make fun of me is that he's never had a bad game and that's one of the most mind blowing. I guess you can call it that you see from a guy who's who's just been starting for two years played a lot of games and there's never had a bad one like mediocre is the worst as you get out of them in in the big games. He's been fantastic gets thirteen touchdowns. Yeah no interceptions in his playoff career. And I know it's been said Ad Nauseam nor is why they are in Super Bowl last year because of off someone lining up offsides so like I've yet to see him shrivel into big moment he only seems to get bigger and until I see him Have a tough outing going to lean in favor
Cowboys’ Dak Prescott earning bigger bucks with every start
"What Sunday Sunday's thirty five to twenty seven win over the Detroit? Lions Dak Prescott became one of only two quarterbacks in NFL history with four games of at least three hundred seventy five yards passing two touchdown passes to be first ten games of a season the other. US Oh yeah. That's Joe Montana or a cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman is rallying for Dak tweeting Sunday. I say a man on that note. We welcome Dominique Foxworth on me on that note though. Pay That man. That's it's a good note to come in on. I'M GONNA. I'm Oh no question. Stephanie Has Dak earned his elite payday do better thought he owned it before the season began. I thought he deserved to be paid eight. I thought he deserved to be paid along the same lines as costs winter particularly considering the fact that he's had a considerably better season than Carson Wentz. I think he's validated that even more. I'd like to also stay this though. Even though costs at once had an abundance of people dropping his passes at this number should be better it does not negate the fact the Dak Prescott has looked better. You have a new officer coordinated. Clearly you prioritize passing instead of running you have answered the call and the biggest thing for me that resonate with that that resonates with this something. Say something to be said about filming in the moment now we usually use use it clutch moments when the precious own. Well guess what the pressure has been on Dak Prescott before the ball tipped off the season because you never got paid. It's football. It's a violent sport. You play the quarterback position so you are a target stationary or otherwise for two hundred. Seventy pound lineman Georgian of forty to fifty pound linebackers and everything in between you literally putting your body and your life on the line every single snap you take yes. Here's a guy that is getting paid two million dollars in an age where we've got Russell Wilson example. Getting paid thirty five. This is this guy is getting paid. Two million dollars no security in an age where we've got guys sign up for a hundred and thirty one hundred and forty million dollars. There plays his position and he goes out and he plays. He's like this complete nearly sixty percent of his passes. Got About Twenty One touchdowns nine interceptions. Okay over the last three games. He's throwing nine touchdowns just two interceptions exceptions. You just can't stay Arazi deal Elliott struggling over the last two games combined. Ezekiel Elliott doesn't even have a hundred dollars over the last two games. I think it was forty seven a couple of weeks. Let's go over twenty five last week and look at that and Dak Prescott doing what he does. I think he has more than validated that he deserves his money and he deserves reading.
Lamar vs. Deshaun: Dual-Threat Duel
"Dummy Foxworth is a former. NFL Player in a writer. At the undefeated undefeated Dominique Texans at Ravens Shawn Watson versus Lamar Jackson. I M extremely pumped to watch this football game name I mean how could you not like their playoff implications about like the first round by then you have to. MVP caliber quarterbacks going face to face race is not even that they are officiant are exciting. Like Lamar Jackson is spending people out of their shoes back. And I got a touchtone school into Shawn Watson taken feet to the face and throwing touchdown passes swatted. Betty goes down. We stay so to speak. This might be the most exciting game of the year. Well let's back up. This is not the first time these two quarterbacks have played what happened during their last match up as they played against each the other twenty sixteen in college we have a QB dual death Valley Malabar Jackson sensation in the sport but Shawn Watson. Is this delete veteran. Lamar Jackson Accent was at Louisville. A Lot less talented Louisville going up against Clemson and it was everything that you wanted Jackson Jackson. What's the pocket staff? Lived up to the. Both of those guys had great games. I think Jackson had nearly the three hundred yards passing any at one. Hundred sixty yards rushing touchdowns rushing one passing. Scores Standing at Louisville is walk. You're right back in this game and Watson won the game with over three hundred yards passing and five touchdowns through the air. In Ninety one yards rushing fires back the open it was a great game was close. Lamar Jackson and his team came this short of the end zone Jackson. Listen it go back then in two thousand sixteen. What was the perception of both of these quarterbacks like I mean Lamar was Ryan? Pretty high ended up winning the heisman trophy. That year and does Shawn Watson didn't do too bad himself want a national championship that year. I think people were very very the high on both of them right. well as I mentioned Sean went out and won the title. That year seemed like a no brainer that he would be A starting caliber. NFL quarterback a sure thing and yet the draft comes around and he falls to number twelve. He was picked behind. Mitch Trubisky and Dan Patrick Mahomes what happened. I don't know it didn't make sense because he didn't just win the National Championship. He came from behind throwing the ball through the air. Picking apart art the Alabama defense which was loaded with NFL talent. It seemed like what more do you want and then the very next year. Lamar Jackson also faced faced skepticism. When it came to his prospects in the NFL there were some respected people at this network and elsewhere who thought that maybe his best chance at succeeding being in the NFL was to play receiver which just made absolutely no sense? heisman trophy quarterback who wasn't running the option in college. He was running a pro style offense essentially at least a passing place. Where pro style? Why anybody would think that he needed to switch? Physicians was dumbfounded. You and I washed him very closely closely. Dominique ahead of the draft. We actually wrote a piece together about what it would take for him to succeed in the NFL. What was your conclusion from doing that? We look more deeply into a player's background in on field performance than I had with any other player and I remember being surprised at how developed a pocket could passer he was because all his highlights highlights that resonating. Your mind are him running so you think well maybe. He's like a running quarterback but no the criticism about him was not at all about his ability to read defenses or run a pro style offense. The criticism about him was about his accuracy which is fair but he was much further along as far as being. NFL Pro Ready Ready quarterback than most guys will get kind of tagged with that dual threat right. I went to his day in Louisville for our peace to do some reporting what did strike me about being there was during his throwing drills seeing how bad his wide receiver rose war they were dropping passes right and left. Yeah and I would think that. Having living bad receivers frankly or just generally mediocre talent would bode well for him in the draft process. That people would recognize that he was that entire program. I am all the success that they had while he was there was because he was great. And it's interesting that you bring that up because somehow teams looked at him and didn't appreciate that and then they looked at Shawn Watson in maybe poverty why he slid was because they had so much talent at Clemson. So like People looked at Shawn Watson and they might have seen maybe a guy who was just orchestrating a bunch of great talent and not a great talent himself. I'm not sure how they could watch the film and come to that conclusion. At the time I remember being kind of confused by but I don't understand Dan. How else do you select him behind? Somebody like Mitchell trubisky. Dominic what do you remember from watching the two thousand eighteen draft Well first of all I remember I remember watching it in a dark room with you and Bristol doing some sort of live show. It was really fun. And I remember Lamar Jackson showing up in that beautiful green suit and and feeling optimistic about him landing on a team early because I frankly thought he was the best quarterback in that draft and then watching him slowly. Sit there and all the time passing by and I remember thinking that. There's no way that they're going to let this heisman trophy. Winning Uber towns at quarterback. Go into the second day but the ravens swooped in and grabbed him with thirty second. Pick in the two thousand eighteen. NFL draft the Baltimore. Ravens Select Lamar Jackson in Louisville Right. Meanwhile I'm sure that he was uncomfortable in that moment and he did not enjoy sitting there in the green room with the cameras. Keep checking on his side face but it worked out because I don't think that he would have the success as in many other teams. You use the word confused to describe your reactions to watching these quarterbacks drop in the draft but really I I think you have some thoughts as to why it happened now. Oh Yeah I wasn't confused. Shocked said that because I seem like the right to say hey. I'm black man. I'm very aware of the the unconscious. Or maybe sometimes conscious bias that that goes into the decision making that happens in football and sports beyond that it just as difficult when you assume that there's so much riding on making the right decision that people have a difficult time getting past whatever biases. They are to try to succeed. So I'm not surprised. I think those those players that are brought up earlier like the contrast I bear I think makes it more glaring than anything else is like when you look at Lamar Jackson Deshaun Watson. Why are you more prone to see someone like rg three your career path? That's not successful than you are to see a career path of a quarterback who did succeed. There's just kind of faulty narrative out there that I think a lot of people whether knowingly or not kind of ascribed to is that mobile or athletic dole thread are or frankly just black quarterbacks. Don't don't pan out when they get to the
Matt Groening's new Netflix show, 'Disenchantment,' is a feminist fantasy epic
"A player was killed, and it was like, these are real things that go on and it does not affect many of the players performance on that. You don't make it to the NFL by being by not having the ability to car compartmentalize those things and focus on what's important, no one who's in the league now is actually distracted by these things that coaches say are distractions. I couldn't agree more and quite frankly, you would know you played at that level. You played in the league. It's just it's wildly entertaining to me and I, I just don't see anything wrong with it. But listen, if you are, Josh Allen, not Jared Allen understand why you probably have heard feelings. Hey, let's be aware of this series coming to Netflix from Matt graining,
