"Looking strike one strike strike three. Yeah. Well, I mean he he had a great postseason for the most part I'm not. I'm not saying he did and I'm just saying there are other issues here like Garrett Cole could not have been better on three days rest than what he gave you I know. So he did his job do you still got a screen on? Seyni didn't. I'm not saying he didn't I'm not saying Lemay who hasn't been great but I think the point is that you solve those two problems. The best that you could you could not have solve those two by getting better players than Dj. Lemay Hugh and Garrett Cole and you still came up short and you actually did even worse this year than you did the well last year was the. Against the against the Red Sox in two, thousand eighteen, which is just it's crazy to think like Brian Cashman. Did exactly what we asked him to do go and get this type of guy go and get that type of guy, and they did, and then here you are again. So I mean I know that the injuries are an issue I think this this time you look at rotation depth if you could identify even though I'm on all. Over the offense I really am because I I cannot figure out why in the biggest games they choke in the way that they do and I honestly I wouldn't throw out that much different of a lineup. I really would not. No I mean I can't. I don't know what the answer you want to tell me that there's too much right. Handed bats. You're too many guys that are the same in the lineup and that is a match up. Dream for another team because of that, you WanNa tell me that's a problem. Okay. I will buy it but it's at this point it's it's gotTa. Be You scared of somebody other than Garrett Cole like for example, you know even though Blake Snell was terrible in that game one against the Yankees. The fact that they had three guys that you believed were threats to start that series. With coal with glass now and with Morton, and then they bring back glass. Now again, I mean that to me was a major difference in this series with the race. Yeah. Very much. So they had a guy that was able to do it even for just a few innings and the other thing too. You know I think now that we ever took it for granted but. For the most part when you put Marian Rivera in a game, the Yankees won the game the you didn't really worry about yeah. He had his bombs for sure but we take..

"But God is last four outs were three line drives and A. Ball to the warning track where you're going to say I get that he's Oh for as last seven and I know that the numbers are telling he shouldn't play but dammit I can feel it. He's close on put him in the lineup I don't think that that lineup is sitting there on their desk. When they get there I, think they do have the ability to make the. Change. But you've got to be confident what you're GonNa be doing and I don't know that they do that all the time. Well, you said one thing there was important. So if you go against the numbers and you tell the general manager in the analytics department, I'm going to go in a different way and they let you do it. You said you're out there on an island. And it doesn't work out. Then that's a big problem. You've got to be able to defend yourself and explain why. But that's another reason why people get swayed in another way and especially so Aaron Boone was brought in because he was supposed to get along with the players better than Joe. Girardi he was not going to be so robotic, he was going to get along with the general manager. So if that is the reason why he's brought in, you're telling me that he's fighting back with Brian Cashman from day one, hell no but it's not fighting back as much as it's just what you don't take every. Every suggestion that you're given I think you know and here's the other one too that a lot of people believe that I don't think happens I don't think the phone rings from above during again now. But. That is a narrative out there that people think that people think goes on during games that that stuff doesn't happen. He's not going into the clubhouse and Brian Cashman Hal Steinbrenner's on the Line Forum I..

"Man what is up Jay I'm good. Thursday morning I'm ready to rock did you see how pissed Brian Cashman was yesterday in his comments about analytics I mean he never gets defensive like this very rarely in his long tenure as Yankees general manager and I felt like even over. Because it's such a monotone guy drones on but still like he was pissed about the perception of his organization. Yeah and that's what we were talking on the show with Al. it's I was curious a chance to watch it live I saw the clips I heard a lot of a lot of what he said and I guess I'm just curious the line of questions like where did it come from was something that had been eating at him for weeks and weeks and months and months where he's hearing all the noise and the chatter. From the outside and we figured you know what? We need to step in and defend my manager or was it something? That was you know reporter question driven I don't know the answer to that. But I'm with you like he went on it wasn't like an eight second sound bite or clip like he gave you a minute and just talking about why they do what they do, how they do it and he wanted to make very clear that he's not making the calls from above. So yeah, it was interesting for sure there's no doubt that he heard us at least once or twice.

"Final day, we figured we'd check in with Brian Jones to see how it is gone Brian. Are you with us. Good Morning Jay. What's up baby? What's up Brian Jones? At it boom. Yeah. He's boomer off today of course. Oh, he's not on there. Okay. No No. No, it's. It's Jerry. Thanks for paying Jerry. White people sound light. RECCO. was happening what's up? Brian Jones. So So you did you did four days Jj you're heading into your fifth day with Jj. Very allowed individual like you. How has it gone from your perspective? You know I am quite as a churchman man come on. It has been outstanding. Jj is as passionate about everything is you are and boomer and and I am and you know from working with me for three years that I'm from West Texas so I have no indoor voice. And it's not my fault. So it's been fun though man, you know get to talk to Yankees and having baseball back in, you know how much I I love the Yankees that's been good I didn't love him last night. But are still nine and three and and it's been fun. Jj is done a hell of a job. Being the host and steering this ship and we'RE GONNA. See if we can. Get through one more any issues so let me ask Jj likes to give you lots of nicknames go bj Jones E.. Brow. Br Throw is another one I think I heard I might have heard of but. At one point can you say that on the radio did? CLEAN UP ON AISLE TO. So what are you? What do you make all that I mean is there is there is there a nickname that you would prefer to go by or how's that work? Well, if I if I changed professions definitely gotta go with but Jizzle for sure No really, I haven't paid that much attention to him. I've heard them all throughout the year you bj. I'll just go with that and I usually try to as you know, keep bj on lockdown cohibas different do. You can just go would be Jones. You know he's not as crazy as bj. But that bother me that much you know just don't call me jackass or anything like that I'm good right BJ would show up Monday mornings. Jones with. Asleep outside of. Football? On his breath. Yeah, right yeah. Man That'd be apologize you now for putting you through that for three three years that was wrong and so unprofessional stop they'd give me a break I. Mean Show wouldn't have been that show. We didn't have moments like that I mean come on chill. We had the after show meeting. Yeah, only two guys walking down the plank. Exactly Jerry that was it. We knew what we were in for. So where do you stand I remember we talked a few weeks ago and you were confident too much on the line for College football to be cancelled. Where do you stand here on August seventh about college football actually being able to pull off season it seems as though it's all systems go and wow, you have various. strategies at play here similar to what's going on in society at large. Really no national strategy and the same here I it's just a wait-and-see game G. we just gotTa get it going and others are trying to start earlier and others are saying we're going to go late and you have all these via weeks that are built. In case there is a flare up and that way you can. You can sit for a couple of weeks and hopefully everyone has able to get well and overcome. The virus, but it's still a wait and see as I've been saying all week on on the show with Jj. We're flying this plane as we build it, and so no one really knows we're hearing. We're we're still in the first way because we didn't behave properly to flatten the curve. Earlier couple months ago, and so the second way has yet to rear its ugly head and and who knows how significant that will be So everyone is just trying to do the best they can and navigate just a boy existence. We're all having to deal with currently. Do you think that there's all these conferences with these conference schedule? Do you think they have contingency plans or they just hoping? Their contingency plan is maybe like the PAC twelve who they're. Definitely, looking down the road and Stanford viability for loans for these athletic programs. Other ones others have already jettison certain programs and we know this is all about money and that's why even with this virus spiking especially here in Florida where I am in Texas and California as well. And did spiking but yet, it's full steam ahead because the dollars that are at risk and those dollars especially football and in particular areas basketball subsidize the entire athletic department. So that's the reason. We're we've got hit we're plowing forward is because there's such. Economical. Things at stake and that's the only reason you saw some schools no, we're not planning at all. Of course you can't and I bet, uconn. Yeah. It's about the players and what they had to say Randi also. But I also is because the uptick substantial uptick in costs for medical protocols bed and you see Annette at the elementary junior high high school level where he school districts are now just stung by this huge medical bill for all the safety protocols. Put in place. Where are you at personally with the virus you like super into wash the hands constantly in the hand sanitizer in the I could also see you being the guy that man they know virus GonNa take me down and I walk into a store with no mask and caused a scene. So where are you? No No, no no I have not one of those idiots going to these different. Places of business and bitching and moaning about wearing a mask I, wear my mask I have multiple mass. I even have masks to match different outfits G. You know how I roll man I more than reading I've always been a big proponent of washing my hands you and I've had this discussion with me flying back and four Florida new. York about how Gross People Are I, mean you go to men's public restroom it's Nassar's place on Earth. There are so many gross folks whether to the bathroom on the planes I. Mean you see people blowing or no no stick Kleenex or whatever. They used to blow their nose in the seat-back just nasty folks and that's why we here still dealing with this thing because people are just being idiot. With the stance of all, it's about freedom how Joe, freedom, we're trying to get past this damn thing and get back to some semblance of normalcy in this. So check your freedom for a moment and let's get healthy and we can get.

"Only because of the color of my skin, yeah, you and I have very similar stories pulling ourselves up overcoming poverty, but unfortunately in this country there were many who saw the color of my skin and place additional. That you didn't have to feel with so that that that's what we're saying, so he right? You get in these rooms, manny's locker rooms and not going to agree the politics. What have you, but you have to come together? There's that camaraderie that exists to go out and attain that goal. That's purpose, and so you you I would hope you know especially today I. There's so many media platforms, and so much stuff out. You really know where you guys stand, but no matter. If there's a disagreement you come together as one to. The seeds. Spores that common goal? We had promised in rules. I had problems guys at UCLA. Guys at Texas, but we see but see that. Racism and discrimination is is solely a southern thing. No, it's throughout this country. It's permeated country. Deal knows the story of the Guy Calling me in where it right there at midtown at a high end hotel. And so, what happens throughout our country? Unfortunately, we have to engage in these conversations. That's the only way we're gonNA, move forward. We talk about it and it doesn't have to be container risk. We don't have to be at each other's throats. Let's talk about it and have a dialogue and I'm not trying to gauge your story and you're not trying to get my. We're just GONNA have a meeting of the minds to see if we could come to a consensus I had one moment in Cincinnati Brian, that I will never forget to this day, and it changed the way I. Looked at things we had a white player who I think played at the University of Georgia and a black player who played at the University of Alabama, and now they hate each other anyway, simply because. They're in the SEC, and those teams hate each other, and they play physical brands of football and I'm I. Don't know if they played against each other or not. I think the one was a little bit older than the than the other player, but they got into a racial tiff at training camp at Wilmington Ohio and these two guys one at like two pit bulls would go at it. And I was I was Shukan by the whole deal because I have never seen anything like it now. They're both from the south they're. They're obviously one's white ones black. It was a racial fight from from the moment that it started, and it was like three. It was like a precursor to the. If you ask me and I'll never forget our head coach Sam Weiss. saw that heard that. We're coming out of the strike and it was like really ugly and everything else and Sam Weiss Room does black players and white players, some with defensive players and offensive players, and it was like us ahead of the time, and saying like you guys got to get to know each other man. You better start listening to each other you know understanding where he comes from and have a better thought process about who you want to be as a team, and whether or not you know we want to be any good and damn if we didn't go to. The Super Bowl that year. There you go and. Kinney Yeah because. We we. The discrimination prejudice. Taught I was never taught to look down on any one now felt the brunt of that mindset, but it's taught. We don't come out of the woods. Digging I'm better than this. I I'm less than that I know that stuff is taught, and if we can nip it the bud going back to the earlier question, what can we do? We can stop teaching it number one. Of course they all you gotTa, do is get on these social media platform, and you see there are other there are still many out there that that harbor these feelings, and they wanna you know. Wrap the arms around the the the the terrorists confederate statues and hold on that and. And it's comical. They have the data to say what you're trying to write. History are race history. No, you'd be raised first of all blacks history and we're just don't WanNa be have the constant reminders of our tormentors. Our ancestors tormented. That's it and if you hold the statues, in such regard. How about you go buy them and put them in your backyard or you know? Know put them in your hotels, but We don't need to be reminded them, but you right. If we could just sit down, have a conversation understand where everyone's coming from okay well, how'd you? How'd you adopt this this mentality? Okay? And how do you process what you've.

"That. It's not difficult to to address. That's what you do, we. We have to stop making excuses for a loved one I share with you, my mom and I understand what she's coming from you or her bottle where she can't use your call. Don't bring it home and I brought all types home. During that but I understand what the the time! When she grew up in what she had to go through, you know the the White Water Balance The colored water fountain sitting in the back of the bus. I understand the struggles she had, but that being said her experiences. That's in that did preclude her or prohibit her from loving, whoever brought on no matter what color they were as long as they were good people and so They're black women. She did like in Hispanic women that Bro. She did like she loves the White Girl. I brought home and has no problem with her back so You know I can understand. Understand her experiences and I know that little rhyme. She showed his game, but I didn't appear to it, so you know simply Geo and boomer. Call it when we see it. Man and we have to nip it in the bud. That's the key. Nip It in the bud and continue to have conversations. We're having now as uncomfortable as they may be. Something else. I've been thinking about a lot during. This time is in the three years that we spent together. We joked a lot about race. We did it all the time because we were very very different from where we came from in our upbringings in our families, and our friends, and we made a lot of jokes about it and I would I would make a ton of jokes about it, and you would laugh. And I felt like we were in a comfortable space, because we respected and trusted one another, but I'm looking. Looking back on that and I'm thinking was was what we were doing. Then with all these jokes was at moving things forward, or was it our way to mask some of the uncomfortable conversations like and I. Don't know the answer to that now. I know me and you pretty well. I know that we respect one another, and when we see each other, we see men and nothing else, but I wonder if that same approach is still a good approach when others have conversations and jokes about race. Does that make any sense a-? Depends upon the intimacy of their relationship. You're correct. You and I could joke about that we're. We're close, so we can make those type of Joe I know your heart, you. You know my heart and I. I recall. You say why people don't talk like that. You know always do that white boys. We don't sound like that. that. I. Did Not. Eddie Murphy. and. We could laugh about that. You can laugh about cultural differences, and that's one thing. I've so grateful for a while. It took a while for everything to congealed when I got busted across town there in Lubbock Texas to we like elementary I got busted, Hutchison junior high school and man. We had our fights early on both of those those different schools, but I have lifelong friends, white friends from both of those those those schools, and so I have so grateful have a well rounded understanding a coaches that means so much to me whether it's by Vietnamese friends from my. White friends from we live your Mexican friends from both institutions, even high school. Dump Bar I think that gives you a worldly view and allows you to navigate this this this existence. We have a lot better, and that's why I yeah I see color, but it doesn't bother me I brace it and I feel the same way with you and you haven't gone to your high school. boomers been married locker rooms, and what you have to come together, you may not have the same views politically on other things, but there should be an understanding, and that's what those conversations have to take, so yes, you and I can joke I got other white friends. We joke like that all. All the damn time. We know each other's heart. We know there's no malice in those conversations, so why not have fun and discuss our differences? We can do that in a way. That's respectful and and know that. Hey, this food has left for me and I have love for him. We're talking to Brian, Jones CBS sports, commentator, college, Football, and Brian I'm glad you brought up the locker room because Patrick Mahomes said he goes some days somewhere in the world. I hope that it all becomes like our locker rooms because our locker rooms are diverse now. They're predominantly black now but back. When I was playing a new report, I would probably fifty fifty. Don't you think? Yes for more fifty fifty than it is today and I don't know there was something about being on a team where the only color that really mattered was the color of your. Jersey, because you're all striving for the same thing and hung out together and I remember we would lose a game on the road. We would land Cincinnati airport and I would say come on over my house, guys. Guys. Let's go because I'm trying to keep everybody together and I was enlightened back when I was a player from the stories that my teammates, my black teammates especially would tell me, but also you know from working with James Brown and Nate Burleson Bart Scott. Who's got an unbelievable story. Shannon Sharpe grew up in rural Georgia all places in how to eat squirrel and possum for Thanksgiving I mean. I've heard all the stories and everything else. As you, talk to us and you talk to us about enlightenment and you talk to us about understanding what racism is isn't the struggles are and what the point of the message really truly is I. think that's probably if it was told the way you've been speaking, I don't necessarily know that there would be all the pushback that I'm sure that you guys are feeling? Well I it spot on a boomer and it when you hear that term white privilege. That's an affront to a lot of people, even some of my friends and what I explained to them. Is this missing? A lot of us had to pull up our boots chef I grew up on welfare, and it's a shame as I was the to have grown up in in in in in that environment are in that social economic status. I'm grateful I grew up. Up in a country that has a social safety net and are others. I got a dear friend very successful. Wealthy friends who white guy grew up in four parts of Houston and with nothing, and so what I've explained to him. Is Yeah Jeff I'm not trying to navigate what you went through what I'm saying and what others are saying? When they mentioned my privileges that there were about five to ten to fifteen other hurdles, I.

"The folks in. If down in Texas to find out that Hey you can run your allies. Yeah, well, you know here. We are in twenty twenty, dealing with all sorts of issues. Issues going on police, brutality and everything else that you protests in the street, the rioting, the looting that's coming along with it, unfortunately other people trying to get involved and get their messages out there for different reasons whatever it is and you know we don't want to forget George Floyd's memory because that's why we are where we are right now. Because of what happened to him. And again this is this is a very political year. It's a presidential year. There's all sorts of things that are going on. He the. We probably can't answer this here because we really have only power we have is the microphone that has in front of our face, and as I said with your sixty second, and yet was very powerful and I'm glad that CBS gave you that platform to be able to do that. I always wondered. Over the past years, especially with black teammates. We know we have an mlk day to to honor Martin Luther King the civil rights movements of the fifties and sixties, which came one hundred years after what we were just talking about what I don't understand is why June nineteenth is not a national holiday that talks about the over one million people that died fighting for freedom, and or lack thereof. If you're on the confederate side of this war, have you ever thought about that? I haven't as far as it being a national holiday as I mentioned earlier the mass. Masturbation proclamation. A couple years earlier and it was only the state of Texas the farthest farthest removed confederate state that relieved that message horrifically two and a half years years. Amazing right that is amazing and I'm a push back a little bit upon what you said. This isn't solely about George Fluid. That was the the breaking point. What the murder of George Floyd, but this is about a moderate I mean those two cats who murder miss they're. Still running free because of a systemic racism in that municipalities for the District Attorney's office as far as the police department, and they were allowed to go free for two two months, even knowing even with the the the leaders index community having that that video in their possession. So this is is more than George. Floyd at the straw that broke the camel's back, but unfortunately this country has had to deal with this time and time again and. And specifically, the black community had deal with this and you correct. I want to have as much fun as anyone. Gio will tell you. We had a blast doing our show. And unfortunately we had tackled this topic back there and I've been tackling since I was a kid. We March when I was at the University of Texas, because the racial incidents there and her, these young men thirty years later, having to March because America will not get. And I think we're as. Marc Morio was the mayor of New Orleans when I played for the saints who's now. The head of the National Urban League says. Is this a movement or moment? And I think it's a movement, because so many people are now taking notice, and they're the witnessing, and we've been witnessing for a while, but a lot of people turned a blind eye it, but you see the the abhorrent treatment of George Fluid and others, fire, law enforcement, and this isn't an embankment. Of everyone in law enforcement I reached out to my buddies in the secret service at the Austin. a police department. The Los Angeles Police Department while this is going on and making sure they're safe, but what is an indictment of those among them who hold these attitudes that are above the law, and that's what action needs to take place we need to repeal qualified immunity and no areas and under no circumstance. Is it equitable in our society where certain people were above the law? Everyone should be held accountable and I'll just say those kids marching down there at the University of Texas they've made these requests and I am with them ninety nine point nine percent of the way as far as stripping statue down it and names off of buildings that that are owed to the confederacy, but where I depart from them is is jetting the eyes of Texas I. think that's the Song we could actually own. Take on ship and use as an anthem of accountability so I applaud what they're doing there and these other student athletes and can't believe I said student athletes Geo while. I watch I believe I said I've gone over to the dark side, but I I applied with all these men and women doing across our country, because there's just not having it anymore and once again. Hopefully it's a movement is as Mayor Marc morial. and not just a moment. Talking to Brian Jones and CBS sports and CBS sports network on boomer and Geo on the fan and CBS sports network. You know I remember the first year I was working with you. You came in to the newsroom very loudly, and as you are prone to do, and you screamed at the top of your lungs. It's Joe tainted. And I said. I said Yeah. I don't really know a lot about that and I remember you. You know letting me know and we talked about it on the air and it was just. It was something else. I learned as you mentioned because I wasn't taught that in school. It wasn't something that I was taught. And then you being from Texas. You taught me about that. We had long conversations about race during our show. This is going to be a long question that maybe Melissa Skin play back and make fun of me as well, but in more of a conversation way. You know one of the things I struggle with I. Guess is I feel like I have you know I went to a diverse highschool? Spent three years working right next to you and you took a lot of time to. Show me your experiences in life and I feel like we had made some progress during that time in learning about one another and I feel like I've lived my life a certain way, but one of the things I keep hearing. Is You know just not being racist isn't good enough? Like what else can we all do to make sure that we're moving this forward? When you're someone like me and you know me, so it's easier to determinant sometimes. Sometimes? I, sit back and say you know. What else can I do to help? Move this thing forward. I know it's a tough question to tackle, but I feel like there's a lot of people out there in our listening audience that are also like boomer and I, and have some of these same thoughts were completely against all these horrible things that are going on, but you're not sure how to move things forward in the positions that were in. Well per usual, a great question from Geo and I disagree it's not difficult to address, and that's why I think this moment we're in right now is totally different from any of the other incidents that have occurred is because I've had so many people reach out to meet people my my white friends and people within my network that are not black that reached. Reached out in, ask same thing. That shoe just broke in. What can I? Do you know what you can do? You can call it out when you see it and quick dismiss, and you know I. Ask you is Grandpa, and that's he set in his way. That's knuckle, so and so, and he set in his ways are on this and that no, you. You need to check those people out I'm sure an incident with you. I was dating a young lady and I. told you this you. I've missed I've shared many of my my stories with you and an forcedly.

The crimes committed against those who are still Enslave the desk that a data mass and all the horrific things that are associated with slavery. Just imagine two and a half extra years of that still taking place, so how many lives were lost, and and we were just bewildered that news travel all the way to the state of Texas a massive patient proclamation occurred back in eighteen, sixty three, and yes, it wasn't until eighteen sixty five, and was in Galveston where it was announced that. Hey, you're free and you have been for some time so We were shocked and amazed that that occurred that new travel so slowly, but then. Pride set in and and and it's not a celebration because that's a horrific. portion of our society and they're more than came after that, even though slavery ended after. Reconstruction Jim Crow for for you know almost a century so you know, but it's more of a commemoration of that time and some folks look upon it as the Black Fourth of July so you'll freedom day black July. What have you and that's how we approached. Approached it and I just remember being a kid, and here we are protecting. We start celebrating in nothing. But where does this come from? And then you have to dig deep into the history books, and then in certain history books, because it's not listed in many that we studied in elementary and junior, high in high school wasn't into college. I got a better view of the. The world in particular AH and especially black history so That's what it means the A boomer. I, it's it's a commemoration of of freedom.

I agree and not just individually but from a team standpoint. We were Celebrating One Hundred Fiftieth Year of college football and pretty much to a man. We all agree that it was Miami. I think it was a two thousand two thousand one team they were exceptional but Lsu. They man they went beyond and above that. Because all the the the top ten teams they defeated. And I don't care what they ended up but when Lsu face them. My longhorns beaten Auburn of course beaten Alabama for the first first time in eight nine years so the manner in which they defeated these guys Oklahoma and Georgia. It wasn't even close.

Someone who's to make a movie because here's a guy from Louisiana one to play at Lsu of course didn't went upstate a little further and plate and now he's back there and he's the head coach and they have this miracle season But you're correct. This guy should have been head coach the USC and they wouldn't have all the problems they have now because those kids played for I think when he was interim coach they went sixteen to everyone to semi's giving them cookies. Well he knew how to resonate and I would challenge you to find a guy who's coached more all American deepens. I'm and then throughout his career. Whether it was at Miami you know all the places is. He's coached this guy's phenomenal. He's a player's coast. But he's not gonNA baby you. He gets the most out of them and he recognized when he took over when Alabama would beat him.

I'm the closest by long Texas and Auburn because offers the only team to hold him under thirty points on on the season they were phenomenal. There's a reason I picked them to win the the West. I didn't pick them to win the conference. I thought Georgia would do more than than they did. There's a reason down. They've had changes on the offensive side of the ball but jo burrow.

I think he's GonNa be. He's GonNa have to take them unless they trade them to somebody else but he's got to be number one. You guys know that you're getting better or getting worse.

"Gay manager when he was when he was learning his learning his trade as well. But Neil O'Donnell is the third he is the the third ranked passing in passing leaders in Pittsburgh steeler history and he had some good years for us. Forget about what happened in the superbowl. Forget about him being a sell out all that stuff the mafia by forget all about that that stuff what I just remember where he was and where he ended up as being a appro passer I could see that with Mason Rudolph with not the extra stuff that the bad stuff that we remember about. O'Donnell that we're forgetting about some of the good stuff. But this is not about O'Donnell this is just what Rudolph can do. And so it's GonNa take time for him to grow into the upper echelon of a quarterback but he could do that. I guess for me when everyone loves to talk about Mason Rudolph whether you love him or whether you have reservations about him it all comes down to your expectations of him and I don't look at him as some people when they think of the heir apparent to Ben Rothlisberger they think I I think. Sometimes they're kind of brainwashed into thinking he's like a top pick. The Guy was a third round draft pick you know he was not a teams first round draft. Pick in so with that. That right away should temper. Your expectations is a little bit and realized that this guy fell to the third round for reason now we all thought those are very good value. Pick at the time but at the same time he wasn't a day one draft pick and so with that again. Set your expectations there. Secondly he's only started five games in his entire life so I don't understand where people were time he's reading the field. Well Blah Blah Blah. He doesn't have the anticipation he's got three receivers open. There's a very small. All amounts of quarterbacks that have played football the national football league to walk in the door. I could do that right away. And then some people said I got an email from someone this past week. After the post game show said well. Oh my gosh of Mason Rudolph what did you not playing college. Playing against defenses Have you watched big twelve football. Recently there is no defense defense literally. There's basically they're playing seven on seven football big twelve. I want to say one year heads zero defensive players drafted in the national football league so when he played it Oklahoma state in the big twelve. No there wasn't a lot of defense that he had awad. They really focus on so he used to put all this together. And so is he the the answer at the quarterback position when RAF asperger's done. I'm GONNA follow the. I'M GONNA tow the company line if I worked the steelers and save what Mike Tomlin said. We don't know yet we don't know he's played five games. He's been up he's been down. We don't know yet period so I I liked base and Rudolf. I think he's very hey good professional. He handles himself well. I think he has the look of an. NFL quarterback but at the same time no one knows no one knows. And that's kind of what's really intriguing about this season for me. Is that every week when you go into it. You have the prospect of seeing something like wow this is this could be really good it you know so. We'll see Brian. What are your thoughts? My thoughts exactly. We need to see him grow. And you know you you brought up big twelve. I watched a lot of West Virginia Games over the years. Defense is I don't even know where they get these guys to play defense and they make in these receivers are so much better so let's let them grow and let's remember that there's a learning curve. A this is the number one pressure position in football. You're called a quarterback for a reason so I mean so he comes in you you. Everything else is as a quarterback on defense. He's the quarterback of the power. Play at hockey Everybody's talking about the quarterback in business. He's our quarterback quarterback is the leader leader. It takes a while you just don't come in after five games and light the world on fire and if you do a lot of time. It's not sustainable. So so these are the growing pains. This is he's the Mike seaver right now of the National Football League. And if you don't know who Mike seaver is. He's from Kirk Cameron from growing pains. And I'M NOT GONNA go into the theme song I know a lot of a lot of you WanNa hear me sing. I'm not going to do that but I'm just saying let them grow. And realize that the you have a potential really good player and so we'll see the two thousand nineteen season season. If I were to sum it up in the one word it's intriguing. It's the trend. And that's that's it for me. And I say that as a website editor and writer because intriguing bins traffic. At times you know there's different facets of this season Ben Rothlisberger goes down Mason. Rudolph comes in they trade for makeup. It's Patrick David Bush. They traded up to get him in house he playing. There's a lot of intriguing factors on this team but debris now suddenly bouncing back and showing. What he's capable of of Chris? Boswell literally bouncing back at me. It's easy and so it'll be interesting to see Doing a savings of five five dollars and a tip jar from X.. Any be says his Rudolph just needs to be good not great. We have to pay the defense I I I would agree with that. They don't need Mason Rudolph to go out there and win most games. What they have to do is hope that he goes out there and doesn't lose games and I think that's the offense in philosophy from Ray beefeater probably passed down from Mike Tomlin when it comes to the game plan and I think the Brian you and I both agree that were hoping that that slowly changes that the see release get a little bit longer with Mason Rudolph as the season goes on yes? We watched the lease get along with Ben Roethlisberger and every other guy that came through this system we watched the leash. Be taken off of a guy like Terry Bradshaw and put back on the bench before he finally got it together so quarterbacks just a different animal well into a you saw against the colts in week nine they come out into no they around the no huddle. They moved the ball down the field rather quickly and then all of a sudden they go away from it in wisit they never revisit the no huddle again on. My guess is that they practice that sequence. They got the ball first. They ran the no huddle it was effective. Hopefully it's one of those situations -tuation where the this is kind of like. Wow that works. Maybe we can revisit that use that as a as another weapon in our arsenal so to speak steeler fan number seventy four ses. Jeff do you think the offensive scheme still needs. Adapt to Mason. Yes and no I mean at this point in time. I think that where he is in his career. You have a good feel for what he can't do well In other words right now throwing between the numbers down the field is the struggle for him. So you're not gonNA dial Kawada passes but it doesn't mean that eventually he won't get there. I think what they should be doing. Now is getting comfort a rainy feet or should have a good comfort for level with Basic Rove is for what he likes to do. Running plays out of shotgun running plays in the red zone that are added this formation. It's that's where I'm hoping to see. The offense continue the trend and it has trended in the right direction. They knew the ball better. The only issue was recently at the Red Zone as they've struggled and I love my Tomlin Onlin that his question was during the press conference on. Tuesday what is the reason reasoning behind these red zone issues and he started. He's really rewards. Because you don't have your starting quarterback out there you know. That's one of the reasons event. Rothlisberger is a fifteen year veteran. And he's seen all the different defensive alignments indeed defensive coverages and he knows what plays GonNa work here and all that whereas Mason Rudolph does not that so I think that the offense sense does need a Taylor around what Rudolf does but I feel like they should already have that Gio Brian. What are your thoughts on that? I think it's getting better but I think the the The offense needs to adapt the two thousand nineteen. And what is this run. Run Pass late in the game. Run run pass run run pass. Yes predictable won't thirty eight. Wow I bet she's going to pass the ball on third and eight in the red zone so that's kind of. I still think it's unimaginative times but I think they're doing a lot better tailoring to Mason Rudolph game so I'm not complaining about that anymore. I just still want some imagination. I think it's still aww generic I think sometimes a thirteen year old playing madden. Could come up with a more imaginative game plan. Then what Randy Femur Hitler does not a Randy Feeder fan at all. No because he was never a hired to be anything more than a quarterback coach. Jeff he is not the offensive coordinator. There was hired the offensive coordinator is Ben Rothlisberger. And now he's not. They didn't even interview view anybody. They didn't even post the job. It was just like okay. We got our Haley's gone. We've got our new. Oh See. That's that's who ben wanted and we have to keep the franchise is quarterback happy now Benz hurt. And now you have a guy that is generic. I don't WANNA use Vanilla. Vanilla is very rich flavor. I don't even want to call this vanilla because I love something. Vanilla Vanilla Coke is awesome but ice cream is actually pretty good especially French for in our at this point. This guy is not vanilla. That's too nice to Koa. He's generic he is blah. He's land. He's he's watching English Downton Abbey with my mother-in-law that's what he is he's boring. It's tough to I can't disagree with you. I can't disagree with you. I I definitely do think that they need to have. I wouldn't say fire the guy would you. I called for it on a point counterpoint. Not Too far back dude. You know I know they're not going to go out and get whizzing hunt. I know they're not going to go ahead and make a change L. style but let's go back in time to two thousand thousand twelve. I believe it was and Cam. Cameron was the offensive coordinator of the Baltimore. Ravens after week. Ten or eleven seven. I believe it was it was around Thanksgiving. It was pretty late They fired cameron. And they brought in Jim Caldwell and won a super bowl So there there's there's a president that it works. I just don't think this guy is a good offense grinner whatsoever. I think he's was a fantastic test. A quarterback coach. I thought he was a good mentor to Ben Rothlisberger. I think he has value just like. Hey we're seeing we're seeing Keith Butler. Bler he's helping out right now..

"I mean when you come and you see your leader in your leader is your coach and he's the guy who. Drives you in leads you. And when you're able to have a conversation with him. Something else but hockey that means a whole lot to hockey players and not every there's very few. There's very few coaches out there that are like that. And, but I do know in the back of my mind, the coaches that I remember that I had those conversations with, and I walked away from those conversations having so much more respect for the coach and wanting to work for him. Because he took the time to talk to me, not about hockey about about my family about my parents about, what's your brother doing what you do for a living. You know, this kind of slow you feel more obligated when they know you on a personal level. Exactly. What do you mean? Kind of like they're taking the time to get, you know, me and you feel like a little more. I completely understand. But she said something there, if you're just tuning in instigators on WGN five fifteen MSG, Brian, Gionta, almost is called geo, but I feel like everybody would just know GIO. Brian Johnson studio robberies here. Craig Andrews well, but you just said. you played for nine different coaches i don't know how many of those coaches were fired and then hired as new staff gio i don't know with you either raise her i think only if i if i can remember thugs get fired and mucks took over so might season so my question is this i guess i guess for me i always have this vision whether it's the sabers or any other team when they fire coach you just automatically assume assume and forgive me for assuming this is pro sports but they bring in their own staff right is that the case is that always the case has been the case in in in your situations and i'm not i'm not suggesting that should be the case i'm just saying i'm wondering what to expect or what is the norm i guess on i guess a year to year basis with new coaches i would say ninety percent of the time you're bringing in your own staff the people you're comfortable with there's bent sometimes in new jersey where they've left over your system coaches Scott Stevens or something like that. That's been coaching. Tell that. Relationship with the organization and the GM. But if I'm a coach, I'm gonna want the guys that philosophically feel the same way I do about the game, not that they agree with me on everything. Because you want that back and forth. You want to be challenged. He's made that clear he made that clear yesterday that he, he believes he wants to work in the environment where people will challenge him. Yes, in but at the root of it, you still need a philosophical agreeance with the people that you're working with and a comfort. Right. That you can have those open conversations because if you're not comfortable with each other. I'm not you're the head coach. I'm not comfortable with you. I'm gonna system. Am I really stepping up and saying what needs to be said, at the right times knowing that, hey, maybe you don't appreciate that? Maybe you're not gonna see it the same way I do. Maybe I'm walking out the door. You're, you're undercutting me. At some point often meet, you've got to trust. Have that conversation with income. It's a guy that even if the head coach is able to pick out, two assistant coaches and the third one is picked by management or something like that or leftover. I think there's always that question, you know, what is his motive is he thinking, I'm going to fail and maybe step in or. It kind of went, whether it's preceded ninety, but there's always that thought so you unless it's your guy I don't think that you have that one hundred percent trust in them that he's going to do what he has to do to help you because ultimately, it's not the assistant coaches that are going to be brought out in the media, and question, and I'd say head coach. So he has to be comfortable with those guys. I think it's interesting. I mean, I think it's always assumed right? I think it's just always assumed did you did you chime in? I mean it's not like it's a buy sell trade. I'm not asking you if they're going to be changed. Is that normal? That's the norm, isn't it? I would think any any head coach that comes into a team he is going to he's basically gonna make changes because the reason why he's coming in is because it didn't work before a coach coming in and keeping everybody around that has already been there. I wouldn't think that that's the right way of going, but like you said there's, there's usually I remember my times in Montreal. There was a lot of a lot of coaches hired and fired, and they're always seemed to be remember your Jacques. The pair. The always seem to be there. You know he is the defensive coach. There was just something about them. That was just a really, really interesting the way he he coached. He he, he was you. You were showing him a lot of respect, just by the way, he acted around each and every player, but he was he was fantastic. I think in the interview process to when it coach is going for the job. The question would come up who would you be bringing in as a citizen coaches what because those assistant the head coach would already know that. Hey, if I get this job, I got GIO and ribs. And they're coming with me. You know that's my guys. So in that process of the interview, okay, who do you have? Who do you have is a sport staff, that's bringing in and I think that has a lot to do with it as well. Do you think he has those guys picked out or he has a handful of guys? Maybe you're going into, to have that conversation with individuals that he'd be bringing up in that meeting because he's not going to go in there and say, hey, I can get this guy to come in and be my power play coach. And then it doesn't. Happen. But kind of makes you look bad discussion of Hristo came up. I mean because there's, there's a lot on this guy. I mean there are teams out there that would be hot on, on his tail if, if he became available, and there was word out there and I can't remember where I'm terrible the referencing part of things. But there was word out there that, that in the interview process that questions were asked about how would you handle Hristo if he were if you kept him around. It would have to be the question Mark right now. You know, the guys maybe not happy, so, okay, Hristo does not happy yet. Even he made that clear. So you're you're going to bring that question. And say, how would you deal with this, or should we deal with don't think we'd want Hristo, if he wasn't saying it would be, you know, you may say, hey, you know what maybe better to move on or no? I could get this guy to where he needs to be and playing the game that he's capable of point. Yeah. And what do you know of Hristo, do you find that he's a kid that's going to quit? I don't think with and his body. I don't think he would ever ever in a million years be like that. And the question is we're going to sit here, and we're going to debate this for the next number of months. Whether it's the right thing to move Hristo, who's very, very good defenseman in this league. But it's a do we need something more. I guess what? I'm trying to say right now. We don't have a second line. Well, maybe maybe maybe that requires being a little more creative and not moving a piece that you might be looking for down the road. I, I could be wrong. I mean, unless there's a deal in place that moves him for something that gets you a couple of pieces to fill up your top. I and I don't know. I don't know when he gets you. I mean that's the thing we sit here. And we play GM ribs. You got the board in the back. But I don't know that he will get you a top six forward. There's no question. Maybe you don't make the deal not not only nother in I Trump picks to that. I just think, well, there are pieces to you. Don't think that we're there. They're in far as I'm concerned there needs to be a lot of change on this lineup. I mean, we don't have enough skill in this lineup to be able to compete and win games each and every night. And if the second line is not brought in to help the Casey middle stat line, which is going to be a third line. Then then there's gonna we're gonna have the same what we all the same playoffs here. I mean the defense has been pivotal in all of these series. I mean you look at Boston, you look at all the all the teams don't even need to go through the four of them even Carolina who's about to get swept defense. Course been raved about for years. I mean my I don't wanna make this conversation about Hristo, but I think it's fascinating because new coach coming in might be like I'm gonna need this guy like I'm really gonna menteur got dulling wrist would be really nice talked about the defense, but I can sit there and say in every one of the series that are winning hockey. You have top six forwards that are going out and doing it every single night. Okay. And on top of that, I'm going to say the bottom six guys are just. As important as the top six maybe more two guys on the Boston. The boston. No, it's okay. I think in Russia's I'm around them. I talked to him a lot. He's a frustrated guy because since day one that he's been here. He's been in touch situations. He's played against the best. They don't win. And he is so competitive. And he does play with so much passion that it's killing them by being in the position. They are every year. So just by maybe even having this team in a different position in the standings and competing. And you know, being that team that okay we're not the bottom. We're here we are. It may be a totally different change for this guy, what you don't have to make that jump to the fans aren't going to be too. Yes. You wanna make the playoffs, you want to get in, but you need to see an upward progression in the next couple of years, you know, build, in that standings in have improvement, within the team, and then it builds confidence within the players like you're saying, do you have to go from where they finished now to make the playoffs for him to be? Completely happy next year. Maybe not. But if they if they're on that fringe and making the playoffs or team. That's competing come, you know, March for a playoff spot, then you see the progress you see the, the light at the end of the tunnel, maybe that,.
