"As he and the Broncos will wrap up a week that just started last night. We'll get to that game in just a matter of seconds, Chris brockman, good to see you all. And your spot, DJ Mikey D, after his two day walk about his back, good to see Mike del two TJ Jefferson is going to give us some fantasy advice still to come on this program. I'm about to give you my top 5 beams of this week. Not to do that. And I do that not just because I like giving people lists. I do like doing the top 5s. I mean, now that I'm giving power rankings and top 5s and stuff like that. I do like it. It kind of cleanses the palate from last night's game on Thursday Night Football on Amazon Prime. And this is a very sore subject with me because, you know, NFL network rebooted Thursday Night Football. We started doing it. In 2006, yeah. We in Kansas City. It's right. That was the night where Adam Schefter scooped everyone, including pat Bowen, May he rest in peace to announce that no matter what Jake plummer was going to do on Thursday night, Thanksgiving night triple header nightcap against Trent green's Kansas City Chiefs, no matter what he was going to do, it was Jay Cutler's job moving forward. That's how long ago it's been since NFL network rebooted Thursday Night Football and just to give you full awareness of just how deeply Mike del two cares about his free swag. I do believe you're wearing a Thursday night's football original. He's given all that the old NFL network here. Turn your left, Mike. So everyone can see that there it is. It old NFL network logo. That's ancient material right there. That's a 16 year old zip up. You got one that's sitting. Good for you. Good for you. Thank you. Good for you. But we got all sorts of grief. All your games sucked. There's not a lot of scoring, and it's because the players shouldn't be playing on short weeks and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. As if there aren't crappy games on Sundays or Mondays either. Okay. And then everyone's just like, oh yeah, I mean, how dare these guys have to play in early week game? Nobody plays Thursday games except people then forget Thanksgiving is played on a thirst, right? Yeah, but that's different. Because you want those games. These are being quote unquote force fed to you. Again, I'm very, very, it's a very sore subject for me. Because I would be flying all over the country and trying to do my job and hopefully get you interested in it and some games stunk on ice. And the last two weeks have had ice in a lot of stinking. And just only one touchdown last night, and from Brian Robinson, junior, who, as we all know, was involved in a carjacking in the summer, and the fact that he's playing and starting and scoring, you know, 60 yards in that score last night, and it was gift wrapped by villas Jones who had one go right off his face mask on a punt because the Washington offense couldn't do Jack squat. Carson went sacked three more times just 99 yards passing. And you knew it was just another one of those games. Another one of those games is the bears had opportunities inside the red zone inside the ten twice. One was a tip pick because for some reason, you know, we gotta keep Justin Fields as a pocket passer. I understand you're cutting off half of the field when you're rolling them out inside the red zone, but moving fields around. I think is what we're looking for. That's what I'm thinking. And as a tip, pick up a past picked off and then they go for it on fourth and half yard line. And they don't get it. Bears turned away and look, we knew it was another one of those Thursday night games where it was tough to watch and whoever lost would get eviscerated. Last week, it was the Broncos in that spot, and the colts it was kind of forgotten, hey, you weren't all that great too. But the colts were winners and we love winners in America and certainly in the sport made in America played in America in the National Football League. So then why was Ron Rivera so angry in the press conference? Well, he was spun up because it's team didn't perform well, and there were a lot of mistakes. And yeah, there are two and four, and they had one since that week one game against Jacksonville. Normally, when you have a four game losing streak, ended, your problems, your pressures get lifted, but Wentz just had 99 yards passing another three sack game. They couldn't really run it very well. Part of it's the offensive line part of it is once just holds onto it too damn long. Part of it's also the play calling at one point went inside the ten that had a keeper with him. And I tweeted out, take the Carson Wentz, red zone keeper play, rip it out of the playbook and never acknowledge its existence. 'cause you're not gonna, I mean, at one point, Kirk kerb streets like nobody's taking the cheese with whence running and holding onto it. And you need to get retailers. What are we doing? You got Terry mclaurin in Curtis Samuel just for two guys names to throw out there. So put it all together, it ain't pretty. And then, of course, it's the week that started earlier this week that even Rivera admitted himself, he created the controversy and distraction when he was asked earlier this week about the difference between his team and the rest of the NFC east doing so well. And his answer was quarterback. And then started talking about how other quarterbacks have systems that they've been in or they've been around. And their organizations allow and retort is like, well, Daniel Jones is a new coach. And he's a new man. He looks like a new man. That's one guy Cooper rush. I guess he knows the system because he's been in it. Even though he hasn't played in it, and then you got Jalen hurts. Yeah, he has a new system. It's been there for a year plus. Whence is just new here? Okay. But it's your sounded like we're throwing a lot on the lap of Carson Wentz in the same way it happened in Philadelphia and Indianapolis, and it's now part three. You know, and this part three isn't going as well as The Godfather either. So that's part of the backdrop, and then on top of it, there's a report from Don van natis Seth wickersham and more from ESPN yesterday this full on long read on Daniel Snyder being execrable. You can look it up if you need and part of that long read about how Snyder's got dirt on other owners and the commissioner, according to it was a lot of unnamed sources in there, but there's a very sensitive subject matter. So a lot of people were just talking to this group of top notch reporters for ESPN anonymously
"jake plummer" Discussed on Schlereth and Evans
"Huge. Who's gonna turn that down, right? Nobody. One game. I'm proud of myself. Patted myself on the back. Don't break your arm. Look at that, look at that. I'm literally patting myself on the back right now. That'll do it for me. I'll do it for four down territory. Coming up. Are we gonna get in the Russell Wilson debate? Yes. You think all the pressures on Russ, I think right now, none of the pressures on Russ tell you why next. Broncos country. Let's run. It's game day Broncos country. Getting you set for tonight's Thursday night matchup between Denver and Indy. Here slurry and Evans with Denver fan dot com Cecil lammy in for steam. Think back tomorrow just in time for a Broncos reaction Friday on a fan football Friday. See so let's get into Russell Wilson. You think the pressure ramps up tonight? The pressure ramp for Russ because you clearly can't trust Nathaniel Hackett, you can trust Russell Wilson and the best that this team has looked is when Russell Wilson takes over. So we need to have him take over in the first quarter and just for the entire game and honestly for the rest of the season until I get figures it out. Let Russ not only cook, ride, drive what are you gonna say? 'cause I'm sick and tired of Broncos country. Let's hide. And that's what it's been. I have no problem giving Russ more responsibility. Let's do it, but I'm talking about pressure on Russ if things don't go well. Russell Wilson is not going to catch any heat this year. He's just zero. It's all going to be on Nathaniel Hackett because when you make the kind of investment that the Broncos did for Russell Wilson. It's too long of an investment. This thing stretches out for years. So you really want as an organization or as a fan base to be sitting here and criticizing Russell Wilson and blaming Russell Wilson. No, you won't do it because it's an admission you just don't want to make. You just don't want to go there yet. There are so many more people you want to scapegoat before you ever get to Russell west. So people are already doing that, especially when Gino Smith drops 50 points on a Sunday. So people are already doing that. The offensive player of the week. They wrote me off. I didn't write them back. That's right. There you go, but let's talk about the pressure of the Russell Wilson puts on himself. This was a legacy move for Russell Wilson. He doesn't want to come here just to win super bowls. He wants it for his legacy to be remembered as one of the greatest. No one's talking about Russell Wilson on a Mount Rushmore quarterbacks right now. He wants them to, so the pressure you talk about true from most of the fans, there will be no pressure because it's all on Nathaniel Hackett and you can blame him. He's your scapegoat. He's your fall guy. If things don't go well this season, but Russell Wilson's pressure on himself is there and grows greater by the moment. It's spicy. So how do you walk that balance between letting Russ cook, letting Russ do what he's done for the last decade. Playing to his strengths, but also acknowledging that those strengths won't last that much longer, that at some point he is going to have to morph and evolve. And we talk about the Drew Brees comparison that he's going to have to stop being the kind of guy that can rely on his mobility and his legs. His capability, and he's going to have to be somebody that just flat out lives in the pocket and dominates from the pocket. How do you find that balance between working towards that, but not forgetting what got you here? What got you here is what makes rust special. So for me, it's about finding that balance, but it's not on Nathaniel Hackett. It's on Wilson. What do you like to do? What are we going to do this week? Moving the pocket, something that you don't normally see with this team and honestly with this offense. But yeah, throw in that wrinkle. Every single one of these guys running the Shanahan system has their own wrinkle. Nathaniel Hackett, your recall, if you want to stay as the head coach of the Denver Broncos, your wrinkle has to be getting rust to take the pocket and move it with him. Plus, we saw a boot game in week one. Have we seen it since? Has it been there? I know you didn't win and week one, but you had two fumbles inside the 5. How about that boot game? Bringing that back, a staple. We remember Jake plummer and our arguments over Jake plummer and Jay Cutler. Jake plummer was excellent at the boot game. So bring that back for Russell Wilson. And again, it's mainly Russ lead in the way, and you're tweaking what he does to fit what you want him to do. I know Hackett has this vision of this system and this is the way to look and this system is great when it's ran to design. You can't do that right now. So because of that, it's basically let Russ doing what he wants to do and tweaking that. That just makes too much sense, right? Is that you're trying to get him comfortable here. You're trying to get him gelling with the guys around him, let him do what he's done. He can still do it. This notion that somehow Russell Wilson is at the point where he's got a completely change his game to survive. I don't buy that. No. He's a couple. He's just two years removed. Two years removed from throwing 40 touchdown passes. And throwing for over 4000 yards back too soon from that finger injury last year. It should have been, he should have missed like 6 weeks or 8 weeks. He came after back after three weeks. And that's why he didn't look the same. So people look at the numbers. Everyone looks at box scores. Stop doing that actually watch football and you'll see that Russell Wilson can still play on a high level. Yes, and he could still play at the way that he has played for the last decade. Yes, you can eventually get to that point, but I just, I feel like it's one of those things. Okay, Seattle's in the rearview mirror. He's a Bronco now. And we got to change the way he plays for the next ten years. How are you doing? It's ten years. That's the beauty of this. It's ten years. It's not two years, three years. It's ten years. That he wants to play. You got a lot of time to gradually. I just feel like everyone's in a rush right now. Right. And it's to his detriment. It's the Nathaniel Hackett's detriment. And as to the Broncos detriment. And the problem is Russ won't say enough right now. Right now Russ Russ is a good soldier, right? Hey, coach, what do you want, coach? I'll do that, coach. Yes, sir, no, sir. Right away, sir. I don't need Russell Wilson to be the anti hero, right? I need Russell Wilson to be kind of the, he's not the PG guy. I need the rate at all, Russell Wilson. If that version even exists, I need to where you just, you don't know about, you don't know about this guy. What's he gonna do? Nathaniel Hackett's gonna tell him something and he's gonna yell at him like, okay, maybe not to that extreme, but certainly sick and tired of the Russell Wilson like exactly as you want it, coach. No, Russ, you know what to do. Let your own instincts take over because when he's done that, the Broncos actually look good. At some point this offense has to pop, but is tonight the night will get into that in what's trending, but first, how did the rockies fair yesterday the season finale?

"And so the money is in flying out the door. So there's a lot of money to be made for the owner. That's why the preseason will never go. Not because they couldn't live without it. The teams could live without it. The players and the coaches could make a decision without it. It creates too much. Yeah, have you seen the ratings on these preseason games? They're through the roof. They're through the roof. We're watching a bunch of players that aren't going to be on the team and we can't get enough of them. I know? It's a drug. It really we got our second and thirds got beat up by buffaloes ones and twos. And we're like, it chicken little the sky is falling. We're in practice hard enough. We're not what are we doing? And you talked about it. And I think I find this really funny because I think he's a great point. How many plays would you be satisfied? Okay, so the buffalo stars got 17 plays. That's the difference between being great and weak one and not been and sucking in week one. Right. 17 plays and appreciation. Josh Allen got 6 snaps. 6 more preseason snaps Russell Wilson did. Russell Josh Allen so far ahead of the game. Same thing with my own moms played in the first two. He had two I think he had like 9 pass attempts. Hey, we got to clear something up here. And when I first brought it up with you yesterday, I didn't get what all the fuss was about and apparently the drive is doubling down on this whole idea that they pranked you. So can you quickly reset what the prank was? I didn't realize that it was a, I didn't realize it was a prank, but okay, good for you guys. I guess you got me. I mean, I get. So they had posted a picture or Tia Tyler posted a picture of this charity event with Peyton and him and Ryan Harris. They involved the navy seal. Stoke, yeah, still clean and so it was really cool. It was a great picture, right? There's one guy standing in the middle of it. And I looked at it the other morning at the picture, and I'm like, I don't know who that is. I don't know who that guy is. I thought it might be Patrick Bowen. Pat bones son. But I couldn't tell who it was. I had no idea. So I'm driving around running some errands the other day. And they're talking about that picture. And I heard them reference the guy in the middle. But I didn't hear them talk about. And so I texted, who was that? And they were like, Jake plummer. Get out of here. Are you serious? So this is their idea of breaking you. So I text back and go, all right, this all happens within an hour. Are you serious? Yeah, no, yeah, yeah, it's been hard on Jake. And I'm like, wow, that looks terrible. And then I went back and I looked at the picture, like when I got back home and I could actually open up a picture like, baloney, that is not Jake plummer. That was it. Right. So I looked at it, I glanced at it in the morning, and then I asked him who it was, and they said, Jake plummer, and I'm like, are you serious? Believe that that would be Jake plummer. And so then when I got home, I looked at it and I texted him back. That's not Jake plummer. Well, aha, we got you. They thought they got him. Right. And yesterday, you told this story and I showed you the timeline when it all happened. Yeah, I'm like an hour. Wow, guys, you got them. Wow, yay. You guys are awesome. And they insist that you just don't understand how you got pranked as Tyler explains yesterday. Although that was actually funny and see a first when he said, okay, I see what he was talking about in the text thread now. I didn't put two and two together who he was talking about. Dude, I think that's exactly what happened. That's a joke. So that was not the biggest joke in the world. But when you click on the link and hopefully it's not delicious, it's not a virus or something, but when you click on the link and it's not what you thought it was gonna be, you got rickroll. That's all it was. He got rickrolled. It was simple, but I give Mark credit because it can't be a joke if you didn't even know that there was a joke going on, right? Right. There was no point that we said it was an epic ha ha we got you. It was a spur of the moment. You know, little prank that the listeners participated. Yeah, it was good. You got rickrolled. Yeah, put them up, put them up more. Good job, putting you up for sensitivity right now. That's 50 bucks. That's 50 bucks. How about just talk of a skim milk? Yeah, that's $50 fine. How about just like, yeah, they got me for a little bit. It was funny. I mean, wow. All right, all right, it wasn't funny. We're not. I know you. I know me. I know us together. We're not sensitive. If anybody's listening to this show for 5 minutes, you know, we do not mind poking fun at ourselves. Right. At all. So this isn't a case of us being overly sensitive. This is a case of it wasn't funny. But again, they doubled down on it. They're really, I don't know why they're working so hard. Why is it? Why is it so why is it so important to them that they revisit the beginning yesterday? I'm so old. Becoming a little bit pathetic. I'm so old. I don't understand what's Rick roll. It has to do with Rick astley, right? Johnny fever, do you know what you're getting Rick rolled means? Yeah, it's like, someone says, oh, look at this. And then it's like the Rick astley song and you open it and then the song starts playing. It's literally it. It's like a ha ha, ha, gotcha, kind of thing. Really? Yeah, it's not very funny. They think getting rickrolled is hilarious. Okay. Hey, you got Rick roll, man. But they didn't send me anything to open up. I went back and looked at it myself. Man, the drive. Master's always. Wait a minute. Okay, so I didn't understand. I get it. I get it. Let me go back to the text thread that they send me a picture of Rick astley. Never gonna give you up. Never gonna let you down. Never gonna run around. Now that right there, those last ten seconds, funnier than anything the drive has done over the last couple of days. Come on, that dude was awesome. Maybe the algae may be maybe that's what happened. Maybe I just don't, maybe, you know what, Rick rolled? Maybe I'm just old. No, I got Rick old. I'm Rick old. Okay, they Rick rose. Great. Wow. Hilarious. I can't stop laughing. What a knee slapper. Wow. Yeah, I did get a picture. I didn't understand why Tyler sent me a picture of Rick astley. It's okay. Here's the real deal. You guys got me. I didn't actually know what that was. I didn't know, even now that you know what it was. Do you really feel like they got you? No, I mean, no, but whatever. I mean, do you want to hate, but listen, man, what Peyton Manning say? Allow, why it's celebration. The quiet victories not loud celebration. I will allow. I'm going to allow a quiet little let them have a little quiet. I'll let them, I'm going to let them have their fun. Okay. You guys

"Breaking news. Oh man, production value of my well done. Well done, Mike. Yeah, we kind of thought this earlier in the week when Mackay beckton went down with the knee injury ending his season for the second year in a row. 5 time Pro Bowl tackle Dwayne Brown signing with the jets so he's going to take over it that left tackle spot to protect Zach Wilson. As disappointed as jets fans were this week when this news came, you have to feel a little bit lifted up with the great all pro Dwayne Brown now making an appearance. Now he's aged. He's older. He played all 17 games a year ago. So let's see. But I mean, if you're a Jets fan, you got to feel pretty good about who's stepping in to take on this role, right? To your deal for Dwayne Brown. Does it meaningful that this far along in camp that he's coming in, learning the offense or is this something as a right tackle? He's got a pretty good hold on everything and is going to make it make it a pretty seamless transition. Yeah, I mean, I think a guy who's had the type of career that he's had, long career, been super, super high level, on several teams. He's able to come in there, plug and play. Mercenary. He knows what to do. He's going to protect Zach Wilson at all costs and it's go time. So that's good news for the Jess because obviously Lizzie McCoy Becca, that's a pretty big, it's a pretty big piece to fall there and we able to get Dwayne Brown to fill in. I mean, jets fans got to feel good about that today, even though. I think they do for as low as they may have felt in the news broke a couple days ago when we were here to hearing this news. I mean, this was always something on the horizon. My Dwayne Brown was at the green and white game the other day. Yeah, he had been there all week, kind of visiting the team, so it kind of felt like something was imminent and they were able to get it done for a two year deal. So Zach Wilson had a nice clip go viral yesterday. Did you guys see that? The sidearm pass kind of mahomes looking throw. That he hit was an Elijah Moore that he hit. And that's true. It's dried, but yeah, it looked pretty good. Nice. Nice. Opposite of the two eclipse that went viral yesterday of him throwing like a 40 yard out. Wobbling duck with a 5 yards to nobody, but no, I will say. Trading camp. He's looked incredibly good against the buck's defense in the red zone. Tua has to a house, but also Skylar Thompson. So I don't know whether you would Skylar Thompson The Rookie quarterback out of Kansas state. He threw three touchdowns this morning apparently. They've had their way with the bucks. Now we'll see, I mean, am I correct in assuming that their joint practices leads into a preseason game between the two? Usually that's the case. Let me just double check. Usually that's the case where teams will jointly practice together. Right before they play in a game. And they end up playing each other. Yeah, bucks and dolphins play on Saturday. Okay. All right, so you'd like to see it play out. On the practice field. How much the stock do you take? I think it's awesome. I love it. The whole live tweeting and live video of these joint practices of everything that's going on and training camp, you know, even like OTAs like a guy with 11 for 13, but through two picks. It's April. You know, I think that stuff is great. It's pretty much meaningless, but this time of year, how much stock are you taking into some of the 7 on 7 numbers that come out? The videos that we see, the clips that kind of go viral. How much do they mean to you in the grand scheme of things? We're a month away from the season start. Right. There's no relevance in it for me. Because what's practiced for? It's to try new things. It's to try things out is to learn and stuff like that. So I mean, I don't want, I don't want just a new cycle over the entirety of training camp right? I want to see flashes and things like that and see that you're learning, you're not making the same mistakes again because this is what the opportunities are for you to make those. But yeah, I don't take too much into consideration because defenses are going to be completely different once the season starts. And I better than anybody can test that. My preseason skills are, they rank up there. The fame preseason. There's a Hall of Fame for the preseason. I'm a different kind of bust in that thing, right? But when the regular season starts, it is defensive coordinators are amazing in that league. They are as good as you get in terms of how they prepare, especially for rookie quarterbacks, guys, who are learning a new system, things like that. So what you want, hopefully, from your defensive coordinator on your team, is that they're giving them the hardest, most difficult looks to prepare for. That's the defensive coordinator's job is to get their defense ready, of course. And then make your quarterback ready for what they're about to receive this season when the season kicks off. Yeah, so in that same vein, we were kind of talking about yesterday about the Patriots, should me and other New England fans be freaking out about all the kind of daily tweets about the offensive struggle and this that and now Mac Jones and a lot of the starters are not playing tonight. Is that a big deal? Should we kind of freak out about that? Or, you know, we're still a month away, and let's just give it time. Yeah, I think we're still a month away, give it time, let them play some preseason games. Also, if Bill Belichick, who's arguably the greatest NFL coach ever, right? If he doesn't seem too concerned, right? If he's willing to keep these guys out because he's got to keep him healthy, right? Right. Think he might have a better understanding than any of us. I don't like the fact that it's been bad at about and talked about all through camp so far. I will say this. Once something that happens in a stone starts rolling downhill and gathering moss. It becomes like a freight train sometimes. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Then it's just hyperbole and it's just bash, bash, bash. I mean, last year at this time, Jamar chase was the worst pick in the world, because it couldn't hold onto the ball. Isn't that amazing TGI? I totally forgot about that. Yeah, it was like, he can't catch, he's dropping passes, gloves, no gloves, hands, whatever, and then the dude's like the place in the last game of the season. Offensive rookie of the year. Took every ball to the house. He's so good. Yeah, I mean, so let's just remember, if you're looking for anything, you know, and this is not just self deprecation. But just check out the Ryan leaf stats in the preseason, all right? You know, I think we went, I want to say my rookie year. I think we maybe went four and zero in the preseason. You know? So I beat Steve Young. I beat Dan Marino. The preseason? Oh, yeah. That is amazing. Oh, here we go. Hold on a second. I'm just trying to work for these. Maybe not Dan Marino. I'm trying to think of who we played. Jake plummer, Steve Young, Jake plummer, where do we go on the road, my rookie year? I think we went to Tennessee. We're home against that was during the regular season though. Oh, okay. We were in the preseason we were home against St. Louis, Todd light. I remember Todd light is a safety there. I think I ran a touchdown. Maybe Minnesota, maybe we went to Minnesota, my rookie year. Those may have been my four pre season games in 1998. I can't find, I can't find this. Well, I've had them hidden until one day when I come back when people are starting to think when people are really kind of starting to I don't remember Ryan leaf as a football player.
"jake plummer" Discussed on Dual Threat with Ryen Russillo
"Saw where it was headed. I was like, you guys gonna end up paying him. The sooner you pay them, the better off you'll be. Because he was good for one year. He was bad to year before and we blamed it on Freddy kitchens. He was bad last year. We blame it on his injuries. Like the one year, he had a good coach and a healthy body, like it was decent. He was an NFL starting quarterback. So I assumed that they were going to pay him, given their history there, and I was like, man, y'all better pay them earlier because like the caps only going to go up and up, people aren't going to push this higher and higher, pay him now before you're stuck in a situation where you're in a bidding war over Baker Mayfield. I was wrong. All right, so you were wrong, which is not always easy for any of us to say on that one. And yeah, I think it was hurt last year too. But I think the parts of baker's personality that people were kind of worried about and you didn't really it was one of those classic things. Like if he's winning, it's cool. Look how good he is in the commercials. And then you start losing. It's like, how come he's doing all these commercials? Same shit happened to RG three. I remember that when it was like, this is amazing. You know, this guy's the face of the franchise and everything. And it's like, all of a sudden you can't slide right. You're like, man, he's doing a lot of subway ads. It's fucking ridiculous how quickly we move, we move it on how we judge you. But did you have like I went through it? All right, so you had, you had plumber towards the end of the Denver run, and then you had cutler and his first year as a starter, right? And then you had 20 trial Matt Ryan. You had Flacco in his second season as a starter. So he's 24 and then 25. Maybe there's a younger guy on there too, but was there was there, you shaking your head already. So go ahead, shake, tell me what you're anticipating what the question was before I even get it, but I want to what's motivating you shaking. I never had that guy. I never played on a team where you felt confident no matter what. My rookie year we went 13 and three and Jake plummer is putting up some big numbers. And Ben Roethlisberger beat us in the conference championship in large part because he was giving me the business. So I don't blame Jake plummer for that, but I think that season was like the best quarterback play Matt Ryan was awesome as a rookie. So I'd say that was probably the best season that I had as a quarterback play, but and then I was gone. I got free agent in Baltimore with Joe Flacco, who ended up having an awesome playoff run, so I played with guys who had the potential to reach that, but I never played with an all time great or a top 5 in the league type of guy. And I imagine that feels incredible. It's what my high school teammates must have felt like when I was out there. It doesn't matter what we do. He got and it's not a feeling I had. I remember in locker rooms with ray and Ray Lewis and Ed Reed and Terrell thugs. We were pitching the ball and practice. If you get a turnover, you better not get tackled with it. My first interception, I sat on an out route for my first interception in Baltimore. Set on an out route to, I think it was to braylon Edwards. I caught it, and I'm running trying to get down to sideline a score. It was a bad pass so I couldn't make it there. And someone grabs and starts yanking the ball away from me. And I'm holding it tight. And it's ray. Give it up, give it up. Let it go. And that was like, because they would talk about in practice in the locker room is we're going to have to score today. If we want to win, we're going to have to score today and stopping them is not enough. And so that was what that was a situation I was always in, which is a heightened situation of pressure where I imagine if you had Peyton Manning as your quarterback, you give up 6 and you're like, huh? No big deal. I played against Peyton Manning and when I gave up 6. We lost the weird down in the third down in the fourth. We are not, I think we lost them 13 to 16 when I was in Baltimore. I was not happy. I can't imagine those practices, man, that are great. I think I might have told this story on your show before that just to speak to Rey gets a ton of credit he deserves it. And I mean, we talked about off the field, transgressions, like ray was kind of the last player to have a big awesome field transgression before Goodell came in with the hammer and ray, there was no conviction, so raised penalty was very minor given what happened, but anyway, and people talk a lot about ray and how competitive he is and he is. He's crazy. He's awesome guy to play with and a great teammate incredibly smart. But the unique thing about him was he had this ability to take himself to some place mentally before even the most mundane meaningless game and like I'm a young player on that team trying to prove myself and we're playing I think like a night game in Cleveland. We know we're going to win and we're in the tunnel and I'm.

"This professionally. But I think he's misunderstood that way, he's not Chris Peterson Chris Peterson was beloved. And the reason why is Chris Peterson would do self deprecating things. He had a thing called the beat Pete fund run and you could actually go and if you beat coach Peterson, it was a fundraiser. You would get a free T-shirt. If Peterson got into that parson never did, and Harrison played a capital high here who backed up Jake plummer. He was The O.C. that called the infamous Statue of Liberty, although within the Boise state alumni coaching fraternity, there's not a lot of love for harsh. And Carson seemed to be tagged from the people that I've talked to while he was here and when he left as a climber. And it was about hearts and hearson. We believe Kevin, we're not positive, but everyone thinks it was parson's dad that called us the other day, very very straight forward defense of the sun, I mean, it sounded like Carson. He didn't mince words, but he was substantive. Has anyone out in your area had any dealings with mister? I can tell you that the next time Dale calls in ask him if he's been to firebird raceway because mister Harrison is known to be a drag racer and they've seen Brian out there. He's been a drag racer for years. Mister harston is beloved in the area, but as far as touching this, the media is afraid. They're scared. They're saying this is a witch hunt and they've got it all wrong with Brian hartson. He didn't perform now the attacks on his character personally. Unforgivable, but you have to perform and hear look Kyle brosman mister kick that cost point is the state, the chance to go to the rose bowl. Everybody forgave him. Chris Peterson made a bad call TCU beat them breaking their home record. There is not the passion the fervor of the accountability that you get in auburn Alabama or Anniston or in Athens Georgia that you do in Boise Idaho, people are more forgiving. They're very much like the folks in Carolina except they don't have the beaches that you do in North Carolina. Talking to Kevin Miller who has followed the Brian Harrison story from up close. He works in Boise, but he's also spent 6 years of his life in Alabama, so he knows how crazy that culture is. So Kevin, let's look at what was said today the resolution, the statements and most important the road ahead. Give us your view of what do you think is next and how I think you answered it earlier, but I'll ask you to expound on it. How you think this all turns out? Well, Paul, I really like your comments, where harsen claims to be a victim. People don't want to hear about that. And if you can't go into and this is one thing, one of the great reasons why I love your show Paul is you get these great reporters on and you're rapport as a writer. It brings out the information. The fact that dis Bo Jackson, who came to voice and was one of the big proponents of harsh and going to auburn by not going to his golf tournament. Those little things matter, and has brought his entire crew from Boise state down there, the harts and followers because there was a whole cleansing of the system once harsh and left and those folks have to have that humility and you have to be able to say, hey, I made a mistake. I'm not hearing this. And let me just say one more thing. Burned a bridge here because during the pandemic, there were some emails that were released some great reporting by a local publication here where you had emails between hearts and the athletic director and the president of the university, the new president, and he went after Craig Thompson the commissioner of the mount west went after Boise state wanted them to go to the AAC and really questioned their commitment. Kurt apsley, the athletic director at the time was shown the door, new guy came in from Baylor, new president and I think left one year too early and culturally. It just was a bad fit. Look, Boise state, and I'm sorry to go on with this call, but I just feel passionately about it. Voicing state has the most resources within the mountain west, harsha did the most with least. The Fiesta bowl was in 2014, the program went downward. Other people out coached him. Other people out resourced him and the mount west of Boise state had a lawsuit because they have a Texas style deal where Boise state gets more money than any other university about west for being on TV. Parson got tired of it, said, I'm too big time and I'm out. Now if he would have waited a year or two, he could have gone to Oregon, could have gone to Washington, could have gone to a lot of places. The worst place we're going to go was auburn. Yeah, I'm glad you mentioned that because his name popped up a little bit when I think there was the Oregon. I think both jobs were open. And it didn't materialize, of course, but we forget the position he was in. I mean, he got the auburn job because he had regardless of his interpersonal relationships in downtown Boise. He had a pretty good reputation whether it was a complete inaccurate depiction or not. He clearly made a mistake. Kevin, what are your callers and what are the people in town saying as this story reaches at least a temporary conclusion? Well, I think Brian Harrison's family is very Paul very happy for him on the other hand. There are a lot of people that probably won't admit they'll tell me on the streets, but they won't put it in writing or on the radio that are happy that hartson is getting his comeuppance. Wow. A different side of Brian harsen, but you can always go back to the homeland and get the real story. Kevin. What a pleasure, it is to reconnect. Thanks so much for your time and I hope to see you very soon. Thank you, Paul. Kevin Miller. The talk show host in Boise Idaho, giving us how those folks think. And that was a revelation. Because you naturally think, well, everybody like this guy and didn't want to see him go. If you listen to what Kevin said, folks in Boise were not only happy to see him go, they were happy to see what happened to him this past week. You were listening to the Paul fine bomb show.
"jake plummer" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"A lot of folks very excited about the possibility of the Bears being in first place at the end of the night because of the casualties that are going on in the NFC North. Right now, the New Orleans Saints have taken a 31 23. Lead at the start of the fourth quarter. Here it can you how much fun would that be? Uh, that would be I mean that I was speechless Refund, Or would it just delay another? I would just push the judge Justin Fields era out another couple weeks. I think it's it's that's the best case scenario, isn't it? No, of course. So cool. I'm listen. I'm a Bears fan. I think sometimes I Look at things. Um, I can be painted as a pessimist. I feel like I'm more of a realist, but, um yes, I certainly if the thing if everything goes well, and the Bears and any Dalton get off to a good start, I don't think that's a bad thing. We all want the bears to do well in this town. That's good for everybody. It's more fun. It makes the games more interesting when you're watching them, so it would certainly be a good thing. And with the Packers now currently trailing the New Orleans says, 31, 23 and the alliance and Vikings already having lost their noon games, the Bears may have a great opportunity when things kicked off. At 7 20 tonight to go ahead and take control of the division in the first week. And, Yeah, we would all be very excited about that possibility it would be. It would also be equally Odds the wrong word, But it would be a little disturbing to have every team in the NFC North lose on opening Sunday well and also weird and my crazy text threat of ESPN 1000 employees have pet Boyle has already made the uh has already pointed out that the Bears would still be in first based on alphabetical order. If they want no matter how things shake out of the Packers, go ahead and lose. Oy PV may have already pointed out that the Bears can be it in first place, no matter what happens, of course. It would be much better, though, with a win. All right. So, um, the question was posed. Jay Cutler, who is going to be joining Wander and Sylvia all season this year Weekly. Uh, the guys asked him look you when you are a rookie You know, he did not start his first game, and they asked him about the idea of you know a special package and how the Bears could handle Justin Fields. So this is Jay Cutler with Waddell and Sylvie on Friday, Waddell and I think there should be a fields package not to just play with awful ideas. Why that? No, that's a bad idea. Why is it bad? What's wrong with it? We're going to fight again. Here we go. Yeah, that's fine. We do this. Um, because, like, no. You playing quarterback in NFL like you've got to get it. You've got to get a flow. You got to get a feel for things like In and out of the game and doing and then having two different packages as the office of callers sucks. Is now you got to get to go a whole different way like you want to run them around. I'm guessing is what your what Your plan is. I think Sylvie and I would both probably be okay with a red zone package for Justin Fields. Yeah. I mean, I mean, if you're if you're if you're going to do that, just put the kid in, let them play the game. There you go. Jay Cutler with Waddell and Sylvie and listen at that was I think that was very insightful because he's done it before, and J came into the league, and when he first began, he was look. He always was athletic. But when he first came into the league, like people raved about his ability to get outside the pocket and make things happen, and I think now maybe it wasn't exactly the same because when he came in Jake Plummer I had a similar skill set. And so it wasn't like the Broncos were going to be looking to bring Jay Cutler in As they pointed out, like with a red zone package and potentially let him roll out. Um the skill set for Jake Plummer was very similar to what Jay Cutler was bringing to the table. So that's why it maybe didn't make a whole lot of sense in his situation, But I think he's right. He just pointed out. Look. If that's what you're going to do, just let him start 1000% because he's right. You want a quarterback to get in the float to get the feel for everything, and just to put him in for a certain situation or situational circumstances and not let him find his rhythm and get out there with the rest of the team from go. I think that is a deterrent to putting him out there. I really do. I think it would be much better to just have him start. And be in that position from go from kick off. I think that would help. It would help him It would help the whole offense. I don't I don't think Justin Fields is going to Learn something from a few plays each, you know for the next three or four weeks. That's all of a sudden going to crystallize for him how to play quarterback in the NFL. It's going to have to be. I get out there and I play a full game and we go through the ups and downs of an actual game. I see many different blitzes and I have to read defenses. Throughout the entirety of the game. He's not going to all of a sudden the light go on and be like, Oh, now I know how to play quarterback because I played these three plays in that one game. Well, that's that's a very good point, Jeff because the one thing that the Nagy and pace I've said all along that when it's time for Justin, he'll tell us we'll all know. Okay, we'll know when it's time is when Andy Dalton fails and you and you have to Put him out there. I mean, it's essentially setting Dalton up for failure, which has been pointed out. I mean, it's It's when you say we're going to know when are you going to know he's taking second team reps in on Wednesday like that? That isn't how you're going to find out. You're going to find out by letting him get out there and quarterback an entire game not coming in there for a couple of plays in the red zone that that to me is not going to develop him into a franchise. Changing quarterback. Absolutely Ian Rapoport of the NFL network weighed in and the Justin Fields idea of him playing if Andy Dalton struggles tonight. Meanwhile, for the Chicago Bears, This is Andy Dalton's team. He is the starter, however, based on what Justin Fields did in the preseason, based on his readiness, I'm also told there is a small package of plays. Appeals disposal then he don't need is great. You may not see it if he struggles a little bit. Not be surprised if the Bears unveil a little bit of Justin Fields tonight. All right, So exactly what Jay Cutler does not want to see. Seems like it's a possibility, depending on how things play out tonight. Hope they don't do that. I hope they don't do that. You know, it's interesting with all the caveats there Andy Dalton's team, and if he plays great, you may not see them. But they're there and available if things go poorly. I mean, I'm sorry. Like I have a hard time like I think if if Andy Dalton Gives you an average performance tonight against this defense in this setting. I will applaud him because this is going to be this may be the most difficult defense. He goes up against all season long, correct, and so being in that position is is like if he gives you if if they're able to.

"All right. So when you look at side Great Denver Broncos. I always thought That this 12 time pro bowler A member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Would have been great moving from corner to safety. Tam Baillie? Yes. I always thought that that was going to be how he Because you love to play He loved to play and you know when you lose goodness, So when you lose the Scotia of a step at corner that it's hard, um But you know as a corner Champ had no problem putting his head in there making the tackle doing all the things you need to do, man and Andy player and a ball hawk like he literally like you do everything like you talked about chicken, and you talked about Justin Simmons. They catch everything right champ? Can you imagine? Had they moved champ to know to safety at the latter part of his career as champ this question so many times over the year. And what did you think it would have been good to know? Because he didn't want to play safety. He was like, Hey, man, I played corner when I don't play corner I'm done playing. Now you say if they want to pay me a bunch of money to play safety and be in the middle of the field, I can do it, but I'm a corner. And I'm I shook my head and I, you know, just now you're talking about man. There are two times since I've been around here in Denver. It is more than two times but I'm too too big games. Where I thought we just got thoroughly our coach, you know, like I can think of three right now. Okay? The Denver Broncos playing the New York Jets. Okay, when Vance Joseph was a head coach, we got our coach. They ran the ball on us, and they did some things the American scar tissue back dramatically. They did some things that Exploited all the holes in the defense. Like one time the linebacker had man to man coverage on the tight end the tight end run. All he does is stand up and run out to the sideline, okay? Because he didn't engage in a block. The linebacker who had him had to run all the way out there with him, which took him out the box that took him out to the out of the run defense. And we had these gaping holes Where the guys right up the middle. I mean, just running right down the middle. Right down to it was a problem with the defense. Okay, That was a problem when we lost Don't say Baltimore when we No, no, not that was not. That was not as schematic problem when we lost in the NFC championship game to the Pittsburgh Steelers. When Jake Plummer was a quarterback, and John Lynch was the safety we had the zero we had zero down coverage is the meaning. There was nobody deep at the snap of the ball. We did this for an entire season. Say we get to the playoffs were playing in the NFC championship game. We get all of these guys by the line of scrimmage. We're only like the Steelers are on like the 12 yard line. They run a quick inside, trapped to Jerome Betters and he damned their hits his head on the goal post. It was so wide open clearly in that game. They were waiting and ready for us in that zero down look. You know the other time when we played the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl, so clearly We were outcoached. We were out coach so badly and they put Champ and man to man coverage on, um Why am I drawing a blank? The, uh Percy Harvin. They put Champ on man to man coverage and Percy Harvin, Right? And Percy is running. All these trick plays where Percy had lead blockers he had. You know Percy Harvin could have been Who's the league who was the MVP of that game? Was it? Uh, Marshawn Lynch was no. What's in nature? Was it Was it Bobby White here? It was it, Russ. Um I don't know who the M V p was. I think it might have been Russell Wilson. I don't I don't know. I don't know who was But let me tell you something, man. Jack Del Rio's defense that day. Got embarrassed with all of the trickery and all of the because we played. Basically, we played two man high the entire season. Okay, meaning we're going to play man to man across the board. We're going to have to safety is in the middle of the field all year long. We did this. And they took all the things that we did, and they use it against us. You cannot play man to man on cross motion with trick plays with the receiver running like her, like Percy Harvin. And we got embarrassed that day. They ran a pick. Play on chimp right. They ran a pig play where Percy Harvin goes from the left side of the field to the right side of the field. He runs He runs out and up, and he and champ gets rubbed on the play. Percy Harvin ends up getting down to like the two or three yard line, and then they go in to score. And All I remember from that season is how champ got into it with Jack del re or about The defense and what was happening to him in the Super Bowl, and that was his chance. That was his chance to win the Super Bowl and we got our asses outcoached and you know what happened on the offensive side. The guy that just passed away. Alex Gibbs kept on yelling to Mike McCoy. Run the damn ball! Run the.

But they were. There was no consistent starter. There's no stud. Give me give me the ST Louis Cardinals. Lomax go to ST Louis in 1960. Yeah. Neil Lomax was okay. He was with green. They're good. Receiver green, Jim Carrey, Jim Hart. He was there. He had Jamaar 34,000 yards, you know, as police percentage is what it was in the seventies, but Lomax, Neil Lomax as you talk about, Um, and then it's just hidden.

And then you know Carson Palmer like Carson Palmer, where he was only again. He only played four years. That's right. Right. So maybe should be so surprised in my car, not the Murray. It's It's select. You don't think of it because it's like The Cardinals have been around for a long time. They have they have a long history. There has to have been a quarterback who was just amazing. Maybe we don't know him because he won a Super Bowl. But there has to be one there. Really? Is that really how we name them all?

"I know what he jake. Plumber is saying that air rogers has been mediocre in green bay because he's never been motivated to think he could win a championship with the team around him in green bay like he would with the team around him in denver. That's the thrust of what. Jake plummer said. I'll know. I'll know about three. Mvp the nine pro bowls being mediocre but okay. Well and here's what i don't know about the green bay packers. The last two years went thirteen three and thirteen and three in this past year. Obviously they got to both us. They got to the nfc championship game. Got blown out at san francisco. Then got tom brady at home right lambeau. But last year the green bay packers tied for the most pro bowlers in the national football league. Seven that's pretty good denver head to both on defense. I'm gonna give you that but green bay. Also add to on defense ca sedaris. Geijer alexander made it okay. So devante adams was ranked at the end of the year by pro football focus the number one receiver in all a pro football really so green bay's defense by pro. Football focus was ranked eighth. Denver's last shoes ranked seventh we. You can't win no von miller but von so what. What do we thought what. how do. He's like forty two. Did you not see what he did in the fooball. Do i need to remind you. Yeah once upon a time long ago in a galaxy far far away you like you said you know the mother guys watch it. Watch the show so you'll take bar watch his uncle here. would you. what what he knows. But he's not capable of backing out stage in this age. What you get thirty two okay. Well he's on the downside and he's been hurt and her last year with his first year. Getting hurt been healthy up the and one hundred six decade. Who has now you who can then. What you about. Hubei gushing orange to find out we. Oh really yes interesting. What about these these packers. so what about. I'm even looking last year at points. Allowed green bay was thirteenth. Denver was twenty fifth in points allowed last year. Wow when you quarterback throws to intercept how many do not throw. How many times did he fumbled the ball. So imagine when your defense doesn't have to defend short fields and you gotta make somebody go too long way. Oh don't do that. What to train him to us. We'll see who go the furthest packers last year were ninth in yards. Allowed on defense and denver was twenty first skill. I i don't care how great your is. Shut down in denver if you put them on the orange crush all over orange. I two okay. When tom brady was turning the ball over how to tampa's defense look when he win. Was he tolerated with turning them all humid as french when they got the door of blown off when the bottom five spoke will remember what drew brees did to them at tampa on a sunday night. I think it took eight possessions before. They even stopped him one. why what. What did the defense do to do. Res in new orleans what did it definitely came along. Okay time so he goes hand in hand so what. i think. You don't believe it bay get up off it degree coughing and put him in denver. And let's see they have a better record. Tampa all i know is. I'm not gonna go. Poor pitiful aaron rodgers and green bay. Because he's he's had lots of talent. No that's what jake plumber was doing like he needs to come here and wake up and smell the roses like oh now i got a chance to win the nfc game twice in all say endeavor whomever you believe are the top contenders the buffaloes. The hannah sees the baltimore. The casey's would be put on notice. That's what i'm saying that fat. Okay well you know he might just lift you all the way up to the afc championship game. And he's gonna lose it because he just does. He's one in four h. Average idaho go. We'd be home the best record in the nfc afc air raja's lynch none of this pressure. He was all he doesn't wanna walk into denver and and he knows fragile dowdell. Oh come divas player here right now. They're going to be hearing. Aaron donald negative neck. And i'm going with ongoing my nephew take that stay home. Really team sacks lease. he's really your nephew. I didn't know this really from texas. He got a different place in his life right now. He got some good things going on really to be a dad. Yup okay then. I have to valid really have to really. Yeah couple of part air. And he's got to get away from the dregs of the earth that they have in green denver where they just say if you put him in denver. Yeah what the outcome would be. I feel very comfortable. They'd be prohibitive favorites to run away with that lombardi right. It'd be a probably pick them game and then i tell you what they'd be favorite against kansas city at home. They might not be able to get. They didn't kansas city but it'd be favorite against kansas city home. Well all i know is. I would love to see that denver team with that quarterback. You wouldn't you to the super bowl against tampa bay. You remember what happened last year at tampa bay thirty eight to ten happened to that quarterback who thirty eight you'll remember wilma's through back toback. Pick six against that tampa. What happened with without pay. Many went to denver against team in the playoffs in everyday thought each other in the championship game what happened. I don't know you don't know i just. I just know that tom brady has seven. Going on eight super bowls. And that's all i care about. How many how would he have if you go to. The people named the manning's How many would you have. Payton had a funny line about that yesterday. Ahead of the match right and he said if it weren't for my mom olivia. Tom would have eleven of those things that when he said. Yeah probably okay. Well so the main. I agree with as a kryptonite. Manning's yeah okay. Well they're both retired so but we got a new one. Yeah let let that rest greek denver. Okay let him go that rat you know you you pretend the utah at all. Be because you know the base slim chat. That's going to happen. But i'm talking all big because for the first time in history a super bowl champion brought every star back on offense and defense every stargell win. It's over still got this shannon. Your shirt on if history is any indication of where we should go. It'd be tom brady side because all he does is win right on saturday. Aaron judge and the yankees take jose altuve and the astros or rivals collide at wrigley when the cardinals face the cubs or the nl central leading brewers battle.

"jake plummer" Discussed on The Herd with Colin Cowherd
"Excellent young receivers a really good tied in denver is that team and tampa by the way became that team. Got a tamika. Just get the quarterback right. You can roll your eyes when i say this. But if denver can get the quarterback right that a super bowl potential team and you laugh at that but denver's had a lot of success recently and forever i've been watching the nfl since seventy five to nineteen seventy-two denver's mostly been good and they've got multiple super bowls. They got super bowls with elway manning and even when they weren't great at quarterback jake plummer. They were interesting. They were around so they had good coaches great player data good roster you think about tampa tampa. Their history is a mess. I mean brady's the first great quarterback they've ever had and he just by joining them. I mean very few people thought a tampa winning the superbowl. I said wildcard team. Be fun and it changed everything. Aaron rodgers denver. That's a really good football team. Now i know mahomes in the same division. I get it but by the way when brady went. Tampa drew brees in the same division matt ryan and same division The good players get hall of fame votes or drew. Brees all the famer. Sean payton's hall of fame coach. So this is a denver. Feels right to you know. There's just not that many teams joy. There's not many teams that the young teams have their young quarterback cincinnati's got theirs and cleveland has there's and buffalo has there's kansas city charters have there's even take off about ten teams. They have the young then. There's another ten to fifteen teams that have a quarterback. You're locked in financially. There's not many teams in this league. Really need a quarterback. There's probably about six. You could argue five or six. And there's not i mean denver is right there. We'll also they don't want to send him to anywhere in the nfc afc that eliminates an entire conference of option and denver's got to pass rushers. Green bay wanted. Jj couldn't afford him. It's not the only like situation that's being eyed for a quarterback. We just saw the story the other day. That shawn watson would like to go to denver. It's there's obviously a desirable location by the way aaron rodgers when he found out member mark schleyer reported that broncos wanted him. Aaron reached out to mark. Probably because errands like it's close enough to the west coast. They got a good rot. Tom brady when he first called by tampa. Remember what jason light. And bruce arians said. their whole roster.

"On K away. So, um, we now I'm not sure we've seen we have not seen yet. The commissioner of the NFL Roger Goodell to officially welcome everybody. I'm quite certain as we have the NFL Network presentation live here in the Pat Bowlen Fieldhouse. We're watching that I'm quite certain that he will. He will get the obligatory Booze because seemingly every time a commissioner's not just Roger Goodell, but a commissioner goes since they've been going on the road and then walking to the podium and welcoming fans and I understand that in Cleveland, they've got about 3000 fans in attendance tonight. Um, but, you know, you know he's going to get booted just seems it's almost like anti American not to boo the commissioner of the NFL anymore, Man. I am. I am getting text messages and phone calls from people and, uh, in the Wisconsin area. They seem to think that Aaron Rodgers is going to be a Bronco. I don't know. I don't know what's going on out there. I hope it's true. You know if they think so. And there in the media covering the team, man, I'm get a date, man. Rick, I'm getting hyped man, man. I'm a nice man. Well, well, you know what the name of but how Well do you know them? Uh, former NFL guys that played that played a play for the Packers. How would you gauge their cheese consumption or the last 12 months? Let's just say, let let's just say that they need some Some gas six. Yeah, Tell him we're gonna send him a case of Pepto Bismol. It'll be on the way, you know. So hype, man. I can't help it, man. I can't help that. You know, just in his sleep. If it happens, how could you not be excited? At least of the prospects? Of it. We don't know if it's gonna happen. But how if you're a Broncos fan How would you not be hyped about the opportunity or a to least a possibility of that happening? Yeah, It's such a game changer, man, and you know we're getting. We're getting text from NFL insiders around the league. To that think this is probably Gonna happen or has a good chance of happening also that Aaron Rodgers and his girlfriend were in Boulder scene at the whole Foods on Sunday. Oh, I got that one. Why does that not surprise me that Aaron Rodgers and Shay Ling Woodley would shop at whole foods? It just seems like that's the place they would go. Right. I mean, out there hanging out with Jake Plummer. Yeah, Hello. Handball is well, Dave. I noticed that the weather in Cleveland not too good or maybe by Cleveland standards. This is good weather, but to be rainy, right? It looked like like you could barely see across the street. It's just really deepened Fog and Wilson from heart. I think the national anthem killed it. One of the best voices in rock. So we're rocking. We're ready to go. Does the draft even feel like it's important right now? Just know that I'm just being honest here. I mean, it doesn't feel like it's important right now because we certainly are going to give up our first round draft pick if we get Aaron Rodgers s O In a turn into a show with you the audience about being excited about having Aaron Rodgers man. I am just so I can't wait for this man. But we we have to wait for this process, I guess to get to the last To the last moment before you can make a decision about this, because you know who knows what if the 40 Niners say, Hey, you know, we'll give the exact same draft conversation at the Denver Broncos. And then they have the third pick this year. Well, It says to me, and we excuse me. We talked a little bit about this during a break. I mean, if it again this is supposition rights conjecture on our part, but it is conjecture from a national Level because there are plenty of people is we've been talking about the same to think this deal is a pretty good chance to get done. But if if the deals are close, if you're the Packers, and you're gonna part with Aaron Rodgers You've got You know, a bundle of goodies on this side with the San Francisco 40 Niners and a bundle of goodies on this side with the Denver Broncos. Let's say for Cisco's offer would be head and shoulders above Denver. I would think the Packers would have an interest in sending to Denver. You. You get him out of the NFC that you don't send him to the San Francisco 40 Niners, who with him? You figure they're going to be right in the thick of things. Toe represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. You want to deal with their Rogers? You send you to Denver Packers Don't play Denver for the next few years. And if you're the Packers, you say, okay. I mean, I know he's a good player and the Broncos have a really good young roster, but they have to go worry about can they still have to worry about Kansas City? Before they get a chance to go to the Super Bowl, so that that's how I think it would go well, the thing that that that Rick said earlier that was really scary that I hadn't even thought about was the opportunity for Aaron Rodgers to be Um, plan for the Ah, the Las Vegas Raiders, you know, and you know when you when it gets down to it, I wonder how much is just Aaron Rodgers saying No, Don't put me there. Put me here, Or is it just a package? Hey, I want out because I think it's two separate conversations because the packages can be overwhelming One way and the Packers are saying no as you mentioned, too. To an opportunity to go play for the 40 Niners. But what if what if it's the Raiders and, you know, I mean, I'm starting to throw up in my mouth thinking about that man, Aaron Rodgers playing They're in Las Vegas, but that big out big L. The Raiders. I think the Broncos have a better roster. Certainly. Ah, young. But is this Aaron Rodgers decision? Well, that's that's a good question. I don't know where the Raiders have a bad defense. Think if Aaron Rodgers wants to win, he wants to go to the Niners or the Broncos over the Raiders. So if he has any choice in it I don't know who don't What do you think? You think he's got a He's telling them. This is what I want to go make the trade. You know what I think the way that you just suppose that, um with the guy like von Miller? Um, they would certainly have to make some huge concessions on. Uh, I don't know. But, uh, I'll ask PK and and in the break. How much room does Aaron Rodgers, counsel on the salary cap? Who a lot because we didn't even when we're not even thinking about that part and I'm 22,000,022 million. So if it's 22 million them, I think we can handle that. Without having, uh Uh, make make huge changes. But I think the guy I really think that Aaron Rodgers wants a new contract as well. You know, you see the shine watching get out there with $39 million Patrick Mahomes is out there with brand new money. I think that when you when you are Aaron Rodgers and you have a league m v P, you know, these guys usually Take pride in being the highest paid guy because I've earned that right..

"I'm just blown away by this entire situation. He's gonna get traded here. The question is where, when And what of the Eagles get back in return. What sort of options are the Jets? Considering we know that the Carolina Panthers were in on the Magic Stafford deal. Coast Bears may be looking for a quarterback if there are two ones and a three and a former number one overall pick going for Matthew Stafford. What is to Sean watching worse than It's a great question posed by Adam Schefter will see with the answer to that question is, I think the easy answer is what do you will in a whole lot? Right? That's the old thing, right? What if someone worth what you're willing to pay that much? Right? That's the old cliche this morning coming up in just a couple of hours. Todd McShay will join us. His mock draft, 2.0 has drops, and he's got all the latest on the collegiate quarterbacks and where they Might go for it for more on what's going on with the guy's already in the league. Let's bring in ESPN NFL insider Dan Graziano. He's on the Goodyear Hotline brought to you by good. You're helping you discover the road ahead. Goodyear more Driven so you know, then I heard some very unruffled Wilson, like comments from Russell Wilson of speaking of the other the toe for Patrick Holmes. Nobody toes the line like Russell Wilson, right. You could always expect him to say the right thing. Go hawks, but I got to tell you Yesterday's comments on the Dan Patrick show, putting off some of the trade talk on the organization. I just didn't see it coming. It seems like a long shot. It's totally remote, his keys said, But because he didn't exactly shut it down. What can you tell us here? Why not tell us E think he's speechless? I mean, it's such a remote possibility. He doesn't even know what to say anymore. Are not tell us. You got to get dance. Uh, Audio worked audio working a little bit. You see, it's a remote possibility. But I just thought Russell essentially saying when asked by Dan Patrick. What about calls that have been field into the Sea Hawks organization? He just said instead of saying all I love the twelves and all this stuff, whatever he says, I mean the community go hawks. The usual stuff he came out with. That's a Seahawks question. I'm not saying that's the most incendiary comment in the world. But for a guy that basically has always just saying the right thing. It was a notable exception. I mean, you take a look at Russell listens. I don't want to call it transformation cause it's not like all of a sudden he Went from looking this way. Go ahead and go there. Go ahead and go there. But I was gonna say you know how Sometimes you see a transformation of someone they look like you and then seven years later look like me. It was like, Well, that's not the same guy that that that's not what I'm saying. What I'm saying is, if you look at when he came into the league Russell is just happy being the quarterback of the Seattle Seahawks being part of the Legion of Boom on the offensive side, winning a Super Bowl just kind of Then all of a sudden he has this Empowerment sort of thing that from a couple years ago, starting to evolve into where he is today, and I think that is just because he feels a little more comfortable. Would stepping outside of the typical kind of like I'm a quarterback. Oh, he thought that that was the way he needed to be. And what I would say That is, just be who you are. Okay, It's hard hit in it. That's in the desk who you are from six years ago. Be that guy because now all of a sudden, Russell Wilson is Voicing his opinion loudly to them in the public and all you never done that before you always behind closed doors, one on one with coach Carroll kind of just Doing those sort of things. Now he's become something different, and that's why you say, Zuman. You never hear that from him before. It's a shocker to your system is because he feels now. He everybody else to shines air doing it. Tom Brady made his move and Rogers is doing so everybody's kind of doing this. So where do I fit in at now? And I'm Russell Wilson. How can I Force my wheel on an organization to start to listen to my feelings as a quarterback, which is fine. There's nothing wrong with it is just different because he kind of In the last five years, I would say kind of found his way. Whenever I heard somebody say, you know, you got to know yourself. I think we're always ongoing. We're always changing. Zubin. You were a different person last year, then where this year, saying with Yuki's staying with myself, right? We're always trying to get better. Always trying to find these little nuances. And Russell Wilson is 32 years old. I think there is a part of him that is saying, Hey, I'm watching all these dynamic changes that are happening around me and key. You're absolutely right. How much longer is my window? I'm trying to win now, too. So, Yeah, I might be a little bit snide in my remarks here there because I think Russell Wilson is also a little bit frustrated. He was having an M V p caliber year. His place started to drop off a little bit towards in as your defense got better, But he was also running for his life from his own line, So I think they're also for him sacked the third most out of any quarterback this year in the league 394 sacks for his career, which is like some kind of damn record. So yeah, I think Russell Wilson's get a little bit frustrated by the scenario, saying What are we doing to fix it so I can win championships, too, and and he has the right to do that? Well, what I would say is, ah, lot of the fixing sometimes is not the personnel as much as it is a scheme. That's why they decided to part ways. With offensive coordinator in Schottenheimer making the decision to go another direction because sometimes it's the scheme is to protection scheme. It's not the people up front as much as it is the scheme because I'm sure the offense alignment will tell you I can block. This guy is not skill on skill. It's what they're asking me to do in protection. And so when you look at that it didn't work the second half of the season because they went away from things. They wanted to try to be more of a run oriented team. Especially when Russell Wilson got into that funk over a 34 game span. When he started to turn the ball over at record pace. They decide. Okay, we're gonna run the ball more. We're gonna go back. Our defense is playing great. We're gonna go back to what we did to get to those two Super Bowls. We're gonna run the football. We're gonna minimize this strolls, and we're gonna try to lean heavy on our defense and they wind up not working out in their favor. In the end. Speaking of run, we're going to run down Dan Graziano and Warren Sapp. By the way, we're working on both of them. And we'll have much what I expected and different from one. And when you come on, I'm not telling that to. All right. So we're looking at about 32 minutes. So get your argument ready for warm. We're looking at him in about 32 minutes. Dan Graziano will be with us next much more in the QB. Carousel. Jack Russell Wilson, Sam Donald's. Where does It all go from here? Went wench, Carson Palmer. Carson Palmer know Carson Wentz. No question time on purpose. Just because all the they just looking for a quarterback, So you got so much to Lhasa. Andrew. Lucky Mice will go finance you left, too. Why you added Brett Farve might even want to throw Bala to pay the man and look good on the field the other day. Manning might want to come back. He's healed Over time. He's feeling healthy again. True to form. Brett's Not sure if he's coming No. Elway. Who else? Eddie Marino was last month You start pulling them all out, right? No, Daddy Brister. Look, Bobby. Hey. Back up to start bringing Jake Plummer go find him in Montana somewhere. There he is. He's got the beard and he still got the beard. Jay Cutler! Jay Cutler. Jake Plummer. Your name Scott. So lacking you wanna grab, just grab them all and make him Everybody's looking for quarterbacks. There's your answer. So like out of the booth for the Pats right back on the field. Great idea, Bill if you're listening. Hey, you never know on the way we'll have quarterback discussion legitimate. And not so much with Dan Graziano after jail name. It has this from straight talk. I can guarantee gel that J has this from straight talk. Stop for some straight talk. Your tax return could look different this year, but you're still going to hear a lot of noise about how to spend it. Right..

You could talk some of those guys and understand like You know Nick Ferguson's another one another one that comes to mind that like Right position. No, you rarely ever got duped on the field because he just knew it. You know, he knew the other team's scheme. He knew their strengths, their weaknesses and that with him being, you know, as a leader, you know, you have to be able to come out on the field and know what you're doing. Be able to help everyone around you. And, yeah, Intelligence played a key role in his success who do that through time, and he'll tell you I'm sure he'll tell you. I mean, he maybe it wasn't like I said, as faster, quick as every other guy out there or any other of the safety's at his position that have made it to the league. And made the Hall of Fame but man, his his knowledge and his I Q of the game was phenomenal. And as you can see, he's rolled that into being able to evaluate players and coaches and put to put a team together. That's ah. You know that last year was Damn good this year.

You know, they tone there, tone centers and kind of guys that make the whole thing. You know, it's interesting. Jake Crude mentioned check. See? So who was a friend of mine in Arizona? I would play basketball. He played football at the same time. And it's funny because Lynch I always think of John is a guy that would just hammer you. Hey, wanted to crush you. Chuck was like he was like a missile that you're not sure where was in ago and he didn't care once it hit, it was gonna explode and you're gonna explode. I don't know if you ever on the receiving end of Chuck, But Jack was always worried about check that Chuck was gonna hurt himself as much as he's gonna hurt the receiver. He was like he was a thumper. But he was like the dangerous kind, wasn't it? Yeah, that guys like that. You know, they talk. Let's just go go hit somebody in the other in Jersey, and he did that I didn't get to play with documents Mention that earlier, we didn't cross paths in Arizona. But him being a wildcatter got a lot of respect for his game and what he did, you know, through his career. Jake. Thank you for the time in the inside, my man. We really appreciate it. Maybe we'll get a chance to catch up with you that some other time and we're getting the various other things that you know, maybe like all the Hall of Fame, guys, you played with the plate against cause In a year together just went to go because some cats in your own practices So thank you for the time in the inside, man.

And we wanted to talk. Tomo, one of his teammates. Man you played 10 years in the NFL four. Is an adversary of my Arizona Wildcats at Arizona State University, almost leading him to a national championship and a Rose Bowl victory. It was a great game and we're the game very vividly. Against Ohio State, But we're gonna talk a little pro football. Little John Lynch. Jake Plummer joins us, Jake, What's going on, man? Thank you very much for doing this. We appreciate it. You know, not much going on now. Football's over and it Z. No time to think about other e guess, except that you know, like you said Johnny Lynch, Man Hall of Famer. Pretty Amazing. Um, It's exciting. So yeah, haven't had me on the show. Well, what jumps out at you Because, remember remembering your career, Jake and Arizona State and in the pros always thought of you as a leader, and I thought that was you. They have it. You don't have it. I don't think you become a leader. Just something in you is is is of leadership. Quality. And that's what I always thought about. John was just a leader. I mean, along with all the excellence, of course, the fact that he could put a put a lichen on you, But what is it? I mean, you You know something about anything? I mean, What is it about being a leader and what made him so effective in it? Yeah. I mean, it's to be a leader so diverse as far as like, How do you How do you need? What mode of leadership do you use? You know, I was, uh, I was really just by example. A lot. You know myself, You know if we're working out, and it was a bad day on the field on Thursday in the middle of the summer, I would pick up the level somehow, some way challenge the guys, either by No, encouraging them and bring them along or pissing them off and making him get mad at me. And what Get after it. You know that There's just different ways you go about leading and that was always how I did it. And then you know, just passion. You know, you gotta have passion and believe in what you're doing. And when you Excuse me when you talk about John Lynch. You know, he's uh Bloody leaders far as like. Doing the right thing. Always. You know, he wasn't. Uh, Excuse me, guys. I'm sorry. We're so good. So good. It's not that it's not being the most about John. I just choked on something. We've all been there. Been there had to be. Oh, yes, I would say this, you know, like like I lead by example and lead kind of Gritty and in the trenches. Just kind of, you know my own little nasty way, And John was the same way like that. But John also also carried around with him, as you guys know, from watching the GM there in San Fran. Presidential quality and you know, like a I got the kid next door, the handsome, you know, very well spoken, well mannered guy that you just looked up to because he just carried himself with such Dignity and so professional every day you came into the facility. You know, we brought with himself a great reputation in the league already. So playing with him in Denver, I mean, those kind of guys just take command your attention, just everything they do. All right, whether it's saying Heidi in the morning, sitting down, having breakfast with you or or out on the field coming and giving you a little pat on the helmet say Pick it up. You know everything you know, He just had a A real a real Mac about being a leader, and it was great because as another QB, you know you represent the team, right the face of the team, but you don't want to be the leader of every position on the team. You gotta have guys around that do that for you. And I knew with him on the defensive side of things of the ball. Never had to say a word of those guys except tell him to go. Let's let's go kicks and ask, you know, I knew John would have him ready because that's just he was ready. And when you're a leader like that, You'll have such a high level as you can see in his. His career goes on and on outside of playing the game. He is extremely successful as an announcer as a broadcaster, and now it's a GM with the Niners. So Guy just carries with them confidence and belief in himself, and then also a way to raise the level of others around him, and that's really a true leader. Now It's awesome. I'm uh, my life. I'm not gonna make the Hall of fame, but it's pretty cool when you got teammates going in, and guys you played against, Uh then you can go out, man. I might play with those guys and now they're going in so that that was really. It's really honored for John and very well deserving. It was Phenomenal football player. And you know, this day and age. His style might not a jive too. Well, because he used to knock this snot out of him. He was a hardheaded hard hitter. You came into his own. You're gonna pay the price and Either just was always in position. Smart as a whip on defense and even new offense. Well to what a great great player you know. Jake's honey, I like Tommy. I saw you at Arizona State. I remember watching you with the Sun Devils and you start with the Cardinals. But if we fast forward to 2000 and five, you know you're you're a Pro Bowl caliber player playing for Shanahan with the Broncos and Lynch was a 30 mid thirties guy at that 300.1 of the leaders on that team, and I just thought, you know I was I followed your career, so I know you played with a guy like Chuck. See Soul and obviously you played with Lynch. Um, you know, he's such a nice guy that I don't think people realize the nasty player that he was at times. He was just he was the ultimate enforcer on the field, and he will absolutely blow you up. I mean, and you had a front front row seat for all of it. Yeah, definitely. I mean, he's the kind of guy but here's Here's the deal. You know, you looked at a guy I can do you go get some practice. You know that They make you better because they're so smart. You know, you got to be able to Working in and practice like you're working another defensive player on the opposing team, but going against a guy like that, in practice to the that he brought on the field, not just on game days, but even Greatest. You know, raise the level of everyone around them, and he definitely was ferocious hitter. I mean, you don't want to come into his own and have a highball come around. If he's gonna make you pay and was able to come up and fill the run cover guys. You know, people would say, you know, not the fastest, not the quickest but you know, just knew the game and was so smart put himself in the right position routinely Who just you know his his football knowledge and his ability to see the whole field And you gotta be me. He was a phenomenal athlete growing up, played all the sports. He didn't just play football so Baseball player was a great baseball player. He he had a lot of skills and other sports that transferred over to the field. But you know what he makes God I can make in the Hall of Fame. It's pretty awesome. I mean, he had a great career that it happened. Him to play with him was just to joy that not only play with them because that was fun, but didn't get to hang out with enough off the field. He was a hell of his hell of a fun guy to hang out with. He loves you have a good time, and he's easily Related ble you? No. Get along with him. I think you guys know that just experience being around him. He's just a really down Earth guy. Jake Plummer. Nice enough to hang out with us here on the Tolbert Kruger. I'm Brooke Show. Jake played the legal What 10 years yet for decade, handful of those years play with John Lynch up in Denver, Jake Nice enough to join us on the Omagh guest line. I want to really drill down into something Jake you've talked about here. In your last couple of answers, And that's the intelligence of John Lynch, his smarts and how that really relates to his his clear leadership qualities because you've been around football. You've been playing this game and to get around it for a long time. You know, there's a lot of guys out there who are tough and they want to be leaders and people follow them. A lot of guys don't want to follow dumb dudes. You know what I'm saying? No matter how good or how tough you are for Lynch to have that combination of toughness, relate ability and intelligence. Just speak to that that that really is smart. He's kind of wouldn't make him the pipe Piper in terms of his leadership abilities, not just his ability to, you know, to drill a hole through someone when he hits him. Yeah. I mean, you'd have to for me personally, Like I said I was on the offense, so I knew it practice. You know you're going against him and we get to you had to be on it. You know, you have to use your eyes you have you had to be Tricking him pretty good because he just knew us inside Now, as he would know, every other defense we played against..

"Terry Bradshaw said. You know you were such a S. O B to those players, he said. And then after your first Super Bowl, they said, You're even harder on him. You know the next year, he said, You know what that better in team had you say? Would you have lightened up a little bit because you had so much experience? And I said No, I would have been a bigger S o b because as you have success, you know, players get complacent. You know they you know everybody's saying Well, hey, you know, I didn't get enough money. I want a new contract. I didn't get enough accolades. See all the secretaries, you know they want to raise everybody wants more. And so you know, the only guy that's got the hammer is the head coach.

You can't be satisfied with the talented you have. You have to continually, you know, work the free agency the draft and trying to get players trades to get players to try to upgrade your talent.

Because you're happy when you look deep into that question. What do you think? Yeah, Yeah, There's no doubt that was a much better coach when I was upbeat, positive and confident on, so I think commercial, really When I first saw it, it is pretty cool and brought up a point. And I think it brings up a point for anybody. If you're upbeat, positive and happy, you're gonna be a lot more successful. Then if you're not Excellent. Jimmie Johnson, a member of every hall of fame, joining us this morning. You're on the show. This is really cool, Jimmy. Thanks so much for spending time with us today. Thanks. Okay. Jimmy Johnson joining us this morning on the show. We got a lot of answers there. Number one doesn't really remember saying if you're making tackles I love you. If you're not. I don't love you no more, but said I did say something to that effect. Okay. Okay, so we'll take that will take that as a way Jimmy Johnson. See long is you making tacos? I love you As soon as you'll make no talking. I don't love you. No more so just to clarify Charles misquotes Jim Johnson. Which leads to Winthrop. Having a call of said misquote. Yeah, and Winthrop. Then it leads to a T shirt about tacos. Because Charles was constantly having cravings for tacos, by the way. The other thing is that Jimmy was gracious and answering about what if the Dallas Cowboys what if he stayed? I was happy when I left. I wanted to stay happy. Like I think the obvious the obvious, obvious obvious reality is he must sit on that boat in Key Largo Key lardo and think. What could have been and I'm sorry. At the end of the day, Jerry Jones should never be allowed to live this down. This should be the bullet point of his resume. He had a dynasty in the middle of its success and ran off the head coach. I'm not saying Jimmy Johnson might not have had Prickly persona and ego. Ah, stubborness. It might have been, But if you're the owner, you find a way to support the people that make you successful. You don't need to make it about your way. If it's successful, you support them. And Jerry wanted to prove I can win with anybody that this is a machine. You can't tell me how to do things. You can't seize more control. So he ran off Jimmy because they were at odds, and he brought in his buddy Barry Switzer and said, Watch will win with my buddy Switzer. And they did win a Super Bowl except 1995. They win their final championship that the last time they've been in the NFC championship game, and most Johnson is one of the quotes of all time, he tells NFL films. That's Super Bowl We want in spite of our coaching. Coaching was so bad that year so questionable It took hold of Famers it almost every position to actually Reached the finish line, and when they never got back again, they would lose the divisional round. They would lose the wild card that got beat by the Carolina Panthers. The next year. The playoffs basically the Spanish an expansion team. They got beat by Jake Plummer. Remember 98 They got beat by the Viking Tonight, the night of the wild card. Just totally fell apart. What Jimmy just said there was Would've kept infusing the roster. Jerry didn't know how to do it. Jerry wasn't a football guy still isn't a football guy has more experience today than he did back in the nineties. But it was such a faulty premise that Jerry Jones thought we could just keep this machine rolling with whoever What he had to do. There was swallow his pride and say, OK, Jimmy. You drafted these players? You built this team. You're coaching the players. You pulled off the Herschel Walker trade. They respond to you. Obviously, they don't want you to leave. Going to figure out a way to make this work. And Jerry wasn't the bigger guy there and ran off the Hall of Fame head coach in the middle of a dynasty. He should never be allowed to live that down..
"jake plummer" Discussed on KOA 850 AM
"Like to do is a good fit for them. Yeah, and you're right, Dave. He's still a backup quarterback running back. Yeah, I wouldn't. I wouldn't take the music thing. I wouldn't put too much stock in that. I mean, I understand the point. But there are plenty of NFL teams that don't allow music. I don't know. Mean Austin High School, We play music. Just saying Colin Littleton will end things with you and Kayla news radio. Hey, guys, How's it going? Good s O just kind of emphasize the quarterback and draft point. You guys are talking about one thing That's kind of dumb. Founding to me is like you look at the Broncos pretty much in their whole history. All of the quarterbacks that were super super successful for the Broncos. They never drafted because, like I mean, technically, the Broncos didn't even draft John Elway. They got him in the trade in the draft. Obviously, we didn't drop Peyton Manning. True, Um Like the truth, the really like true homegrown quarterback the Bronx have had that we were most successful. It was Tim Tebow because we didn't drop Jake Plummer, either And other than that, you know, Tim Tebow is kind of our best quarterback that we drafted, so it's kind of Interesting to think, like not only coaches, but it's the scouting department as well. When it comes to the draft. Well, they true and again. I don't think the scouts get get off the hook, either. But there are teams that have had pretty good success. Quarterback without dreaming. New Orleans has been good for his long as I can remember with Drew Brees and the Saints didn't draft Drew Brees. So I don't I don't think it really matters how you do it. You gotta get lucky to take a quarterback in the first round and have him be the guy eventually be your franchise quarterback. You gotta get very, very lucky. To do that, But, um to me, it doesn't matter how it just matters. If you can find a guy that you can build around, and they haven't they haven't. I mean, Lester lock turns out to be the guy they have been able to do that. Certainly since paint retired. Absolutely, And it's crazy because you look at other teams and I felt like the quote unquote juggernaut teams they other than like you mentioned New Orleans. The other juggernaut teams have drafted their quarterbacks like the Patriots with Tom Brady. The Chiefs, the Packers Seahawks with Russell Wilson, Um, you know, other than other than the states. There has been a whole lot of teams that go out and get free agency with a veteran quarterback. Because they're veterans and their older so they don't really withstand as much is drafting that franchise quarterback. No, I agree. I agree. Good points, Kyle. Thank you, Um Hey, I think all valid points. Yeah,.
