"But i think also having a frustrating time of the citadel at the moment and sometimes when i hit that wall it's nice to have something else to pop over to which i think is maybe what you have with scott. Your scott block series and I think to like where. I am going to be stretching my legs. And and taking into consideration things like sci fi texture packs like maybe modest is going to be the better place for it like maybe vanilla minecraft gameplay. It's just not going to be enough. Like maybe i'm gonna want elevators and sliding doors and just be able to really put those finishing touches on some of team i if i had access to rtx. I'd love to be able to play with that. And that again would be a great place to do. A custom. Texture packs sci-fi bill with rtx because like holy crap. You could really get into Some cool lighting and stuff there too i. I don't know whether you mentioned it pre show or not. But i i think you had mentioned something about color theory And one into like us. Rtx and the stuff to kind of like work on that kind of stuff and cry to implement that in your world's swale recommend a color and light a guide for the realist painter doesn't matter that you're not painting It's by james gurney And it's been pretty much a staple in our world Anybody that's dealing with painting and dealing with light rendering light moods all the kind of stuff but how life works and how to render it in an artwork but really all you have to do is just changed. The idea of using photoshop or a paintbrush and pigments and then just which that over to the mechanics of rtx might be able to achieve some really cool stuff in at least. If you're gonna wanna brush up on those kinds of things the way that you're brushing up on the architecture stuff then then colored light would be an excellent place to start Absolutely i i want to read more in general and i think that's That's definitely going to a place to place to go with it. Well that's i think it'll be interesting to look back on this show in six to eight months time and see how much of this we've actually accomplished. I feel like this is. This is almost setting on new year's resolutions minecraft. I feel like and Yeah let's see see how far we can get with any of it. But i think for now that is going to be it for this.

"Verne type of time periods correct. Yes, things don't change in Topi that much, but we can enter it in different points on the shoreline geographically or in different points in history and one of the books, that I did is a prequel. It goes back a couple thousand years in the expands the the concept backward in time and the hallmark miniseries. With some characters from the present day, so as you can imagine for it for a TV, script writers, we're looking for a way to to bring a somewhat more contemporary perspective to the story in it and I think it's. A NEAT way to to develop diner Topi into the modern day, but it's still it's still the same kind of dining topa with. One kid told me everyone wears baggy clothes, right? That's the idea. The dinosaurs are. Not all of them talk some of them. Communicate in different ways, but there is. A six foot tall dinosaur named ZIPPO WHO's A. Standard Ikea source or a Atro- Don is basically the one of the most intelligent dinosaurs who follows the characters on their adventures. He's awesome. I mean some of the things that we mentioned the Ping Pong game. I think he's the one playing ping pong, and not only that just you know, I think in the in the library of dining topa and I was just amazed how well he interacted with the human characters I can imagine wouldn't challenge. It must have been for them. That was pretty awesome and I was very impressed that people make doing the affects. Walking with dinosaurs as well doing the dyno's yes, the same team that did walking with dinosaurs, and when you look at scenes like that the dinosaurs walking through the library, and all of the scales are shimmering right as as he turns around, and not only the movement of the creature himself, but the shadows that are cast on all the bookcases. Had to be carefully planned and plotted so that they they looked really three dimensional, so it was. It was a real job for them to sell some of those shots into. For the actors to act these scenes where the dinosaurs didn't exist. Of course they were just talking to blank space or to a ping pong ball the end of a pole. That so it's. Was a fine job of acting there, too, and you mentioned. The ONYX and there's one characteristic becoming a favorite of mine, because I've seen him today number twenty six. I think he's a cute little. I and I know that was done by the Jim Henson creature shop, which fans will know from other hallmark productions, but also farscape which I. do a great job on there, too. And I was really amazed all the work that went into him. You know, but you said you held him and you kind of so how he worked. What was that experience like to see a creation of yours like that kind of come to life and do all these things that. Independent of you sort of speak. Well I, visiting the waterfall city set was something like waking and a dream waking up in a dream, because I have been working for many years imagining all of this and draw pictures on paper, but to actually go through the archway, and out suddenly be indicted. Topi was really thrilling to see I watched a little bit of principal photography and then. went to the edge of a sound stage where these guys handed me this hatchlings dinosaur, and they said don't drop it cost one hundred thousand dollars in, and I'm holding this creature about the size and weight of watermelon or so and a baby Sarah Thompson Dinosaur. She turns her head and looks up at me and moves or pause, and wags her tail, and blinks and licks her lips, and are selects the Beacon I. Could swear as holding a living creature. And, then I looked up and there these two guys in the shadows with Radio Control Setsu wiggling these all these dials and controls, and I realized they were doing the whole thing, but it was. When you take the skin off of that creature and look what's inside. Being the son of a mechanical engineer, and building a of gadgets as a kid I have great admiration for what it took to to make all the subtle movements on the surface, and you have a great cast David twelfths from. Dr Real One of my favorite actresses Alice, Krieger who was fans remember from the Board Queen from Star Trek. The next generation and she's terrific and some great young actors twos. I think they'll. People will have characters. They can relate to yeah I think so, and I think it's A. Pretty big team because you've got all the principal characters and a huge cast of extras that are that are moving around in the background, not just humans, but also dinosaurs that are thrown in as texture. You know in the background. A QUEST STORY THAT Follows the two brothers one is kind of a rabble, rouser and troublemaker. He's not. He doesn't like that and toby too much at first, and he doesn't have much of a sensitive side. And of course he gets assigned to the hatchery to raise. hatchlings, the other guy has a fear of heights, and he's kind of bookish fellow, and he gets assigned to be a sky box writer. He's not sure he likes heights at all. But? They go through their course of their adventures, looking for their father who's lost and both of them fall in love with a diner. Topi and girly Marian, so it's it's quite an epic. Can develop characters for the full six hours of the miniseries. You one thing I do want to add is Karl Marx, such great series. I've loved Gulliver's travels. Rabian nights and I was very thrilled and even Jason and the argonauts that was thrilled that they were behind this. They did they approach you about this? Or how did this come about in that sense? Data Topi a was optioned with a major motion picture company in Hollywood for several years in a great team was put together behind it with Ken Ralston, of Lamb and image works, which was really formed around. Doing the dining topiary effects, and they did tremendous amount of work, storyboarding and screenplay. It's been about four million on it, but the plug got pulled at the from the executives with the change of Administration at Columbia, and at that point, the rights came back to us, and we were looking around at other studios at hallmark entertainment came in and I never really thought of them because I don't own a TV and so I had never seen any of the production, so we rented a TV VCR, set us all the tapes and I I watched the whole the whole hallmark series. And was really impressed with. Not only the fact that they were faithful to stories, but when they did make changes they. Had some creative ideas to bring to the material and I knew that men risk for Dino Topa because I knew that changes had to be made to make it work on the screen, but they were concerned about keeping it faithful to the spirit of the original story. And also to to doing something on television that really is intended for family audiences, and and doesn't introduce something in a diner. That doesn't belong no I think. It's GonNa be awesome and I wanted to ask you to. What's what you have I? Know you during a great slide presentation. You gave here Luna Con- you previewed some new Dina Topi that you're working about a new city. Can you kind of tease your fans about that a little bit? The new book that I'm starting on all I, really say about it as it involves an adventure story from Arthur dennison's journals based on a new journal that was just recently discovered about his. Adventures to the eastern coast into the fabled city of Dara. Something like the story of Marco Polo's journeys across the continent to China. And the first couple of paintings, the big ones for for this one will be featured in Washington at a show of dining Topi art. They will be at the Smithsonian. Starting in late April and going all the way through till September, so if anyone wants to see the art from the first three books that I've done and some of the models that went into it as well as some of the material from the hallmark miniseries lobby down there. started the end of April I've been to that museum there. They do great job presenting things like this. So that's going to be awesome I have families. I think I'll go down there. Definitely. Check that out well. I, really WANNA. Thank you for taking the time to speak to me I think I'd been long. Admire of your work since I saw the first book and just little boy me just went cool. Take Care Tony Tomato until next time..

"The world of Dinatale Topa? Let's reflect and look inside the mind of this creator of this fantastic dino world. The first question I think to ask you is. Did you think back in one thousand, nine, hundred, eighty two Tokyo would become what it is today. No, I had no idea at all. In fact when I was doing the paintings for Dino Topa I was doing pictures that I was intentionally doing to make impossible to make a live action. I knew that in the Star Wars era was hard to do the water. Water effects and to do people riding creatures, those are always the toughest thing to do so I, deliberately planned these big epic scenes of Waterfall City and parade dinosaurs, because this will never be made into live action, and just about then of course, the digital revolution was starting to happen, and and I realized that maybe it would be possible took a long time, but I think that hallmark entertainment is really. Gone all out to make Dina Topi translate to the screen. As very exciting and actually to kind of go back to your work, and we'll definitely cover the miniseries as well but I. Think what impressed me to the amount of research that you do on on diagnosing it looking at fossils and things to get the dinosaurs at the correct scale. You know I spoken to Actually Dean Foster one time and I know he's travelled a bit, and you do as well to kind of get that look of the city, the city of Dining Topi as well. Yeah it kind of specializes in artist in painting. Realistic scenes of things that can't be photographed whether it's a historical scene from National Geographic. Or fantasy scene of something that we know must exist out there, but no one has ever seen I end to do that means getting a lot of models and elements and people in Costume, and whatever it takes to essentially do almost like a single frame from a from a cease obt, male movie, and the fun thing about being an artist. Is that working away in your studio? You can do? All those things can be the writer and the director and the lighting person, and and put the whole thing together. Which one is your favorite dinosaur to draw? I'm. Like stegosaurus because it's the most outlandish dinosaur, and when you spend a lot of time coming up with alien design, and the thing about nature, is it? There are things in the fossil record that have far weirder than anything you could imagine and Stegosaurus one, although it's a bear to dry, stegosaurus is tough, because all those different plates are in different angles, and you have to just keep racing it and redrawing it to get it right, but nevertheless that's one of my favorite dinosaurs. Was this a boyhood something that you liked as a boy? The dinosaurs right for me I got into because of a gentleman named Harry Housing. I did love dinosaurs as a kid, and of course in those days they were seen as cold, blooded reptiles who lived in the swamp and I remember the picture in the time life book had the brackish source with the whole body underwater, because and just ahead sticking out because they said well, we can't hold up its own weight. It could never do that and it wasn't. Until I became an adult that the new theories came along presenting dinosaurs as dynamic and warm blooded and intelligent, and just recently in the last few years. The bird dinosaur connection has really solidified so that we realized that dinosaurs. Behaviors and mannerisms, and even looked a lot like birds, instead of like reptiles, that science dinosaurs is very very much a part of dining Topi. and. Talking to paleontologists about the wave of popular interest very often, they follow these renaissance periods of discoveries, which word still in and Topi is just one way of playing without idea. What if dinosaurs are bird like dynamic and intelligent? What if we? If. They were smart if they were wise and could. Benefit, US, somehow speaking of that, I'm sure you've seen the famous. I think even the Museum of Natural History New York area here with the T. Rex, standing up almost fully erect, and obviously we've found out that hey might not be that way. Part of what I love about. Dinosaurs is what we don't know about them. We know what this structure of their bones looks like. We know we have a few skin impressions, but we don't know how. They sounded a really how they moved or what color they were for a while. People were saying the. The Tarantula could run forty miles an hour, and now article comes out a couple of weeks ago. They'd say now they could just walk about ten miles an hour at the most and and who knows but being artist you talk to all the scientists and let them make their case to you and then paint what what seems to feel right, and what what fits with the latest discoveries, so that aspect of them as creatures of fantasy as it were, I love because we know they were real, but they require are match to bring them into. into being again and win the digital revolution happening nearly ninety, nine, hundred, ninety, one, for example, I guess Terminator Two is the one that kind of blew it all out of the box and then geographic park was that when you first started the suspected? Maybe Dina. Topi can make a big screen or small screen transition. Yeah, I saw a few test footage. Experiments even before Jurassic Park and made friends with some of the guys who are working on. That had a chance to see the full size animatronic for really impressive, beautifully sculpted great mechanics, but But they were all standing around. I remember in the sound stage after a day shooting in the jungle Andrew Park, and they said you know all these animatronic are going to become obsolete in five years, because digital will do everything, and we'll still have work, but it'll be a different world in in in a way they're right. There's still is there's room for animatronic and great work being done in those, but in the case of the dining topiary film we had two animatronic for the smaller creatures. You're actually holding. What is a tremendous amount of physical? Between, the the actors and the dinosaurs, there's no substitute for that, but for almost everything else. The the digital revolution makes it seamless chance to to create creatures that are closely interacting in the case of Dan. Topi production, even playing Ping Pong with the human character. I was really amazed by that scene. Just really all the amount of work that went into this shot at one of my favorite studios in England being James Bond Fan Pinewood studios which. The Superman film there years ago. great place to to build the city, and they actually build one of the key cities and dinatale waterfall city. Yet they built on the back of the Pinewood lot of five Acre full-size set of waterfall city with the canals and the boats and sixty foot high archways. I had a chance to visit out there driving by all the James Bond sets. and. Walking through the archway. They had tremendous rain storms the most rain they'd had in England in about sixty years and puddles everywhere, and they were supposed to be shooting all these scenes with hundreds of extras, and they had to wait for a clear spot, and now as they're finishing up to production in London, doing the digital effects. They're dealing with played photography where. In one scene it might be sunny in the next scene. Cloudy and to try to tile together is is a nightmare, but. It'll. It'll having a real set really. Makes a difference because you can tell when you're watching it that you're actually looking real walls and real surfaces rather than a model or a digital background. And actually this takes place in modern time where they find Dina Topi. If I recall from the books, actually takes place I. Think in the eighteen. I'd almost like Jules.

"Hi Welcome to season two of bite. This is Tony Tiller. Parenting apocalypse it's it's not the same way that. You know how it works any views usually two to four minutes long, but sometimes they can be a little longer only when you when you live long enough, all kinds of strange things happen. Very right in saying that the Greek heroes the original superheroes. In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity inclusion. I love world, building and someone who did an amazing job of it was illustrator and writer James Gurney. Did you think back in nineteen? ninety-two to Dina Tokyo would become what it is today. I had no idea at all. In fact when I was doing the paintings for Diner Topa I was doing pictures that I was intentionally doing to make impossible to make in a live action. I knew that in the Star Wars era, it was hard to do the water effects, and to do people writing creatures are always the toughest thing to do so I. Deliberately Plan these big epic scenes of waterfall, city and a parade with dinosaurs, because this will never be made into live action, and just about then of course, the digital revolution was starting to happen and. I realized that maybe it would be possible took a long time, but. I think that hallmark entertainment is really gone all out to make dining. topi translate to the screen. As very exciting, and actually to kind of go back to your work, and we'll definitely cover the miniseries as well, but I think what impressed me, too. Is the amount of research that you do on on diagnosing looking at fossil's. Doors at the correct scale. Spokane actually, Dean Foster at one time and I know he's travelled a bit, and you do as well to kind of get that look of the city. The city is of diner, Topi, as well. Yeah kind of specializes an artist in painting, realistic scenes of things that can't be photographed whether it's a historical scene from National Geographic. Or fantasy scene of something that we know must exist out there, but no one has ever seen I. End to do that means getting a lot of of models and elements and people in Costume, and whatever it takes to essentially do almost like a single frame from from A. Movie and the fun thing about being an artist. Is that working away in your studio? You can do? All those things can be the writer and the director and the lighting person, and and the whole thing together. Which one is your favorite dinosaur to draw? I really like Stegosaurus, because it's the most outlandish dinosaur, and when you spent a Lotta time coming up with alien design and the thing about nature. There are things in the fossil record weirder than anything. You could imagine stegosauruses one although it's a bear. Dry stegosaurus is tough because all those different plates are in different angles, and you have to just keep racing redrawing it till you get it right, but. Nevertheless I that's one of my favorite dinosaurs. Was this a boyhood something that you liked as a boy? The dinosaurs right for me I got into him because of a gentleman named Harry. Housing Yeah. I did love dinosaurs as a kid, and of course in those days they were seen as cold, blooded reptiles who lived in the swamp, and I remember the picture in the time life book had the brackish source with the whole body underwater, because just the head sticking out because they said. Said well can't hold up its own weight. It could never do that and it wasn't. Until I became an adult that the new theories came along presenting dinosaurs as dynamic and warm blooded and intelligent, and just recently in the last few years. The bird dinosaur connection has really solidified so that we realize that dinosaurs had a lot of behaviors and mannerisms, and even looked a lot like birds, instead of like reptiles that science of dinosaurs is very very much a part of Diana Topi. and talking to paleontologists about the waves of popular interest very often, they follow these renaissance periods of discoveries, which were were still in and dining.

"ESPN app. Brought to you by Miller lite again. We're at the broken barrel. Let me tell you if you haven't had the wings and the broken bureau, you gotta come. I tried them. It is tremendous every Wednesday. You have seventy five cents wings of the broken barrel here in licking park, a terrific place at great food for sure as we talked to you about the bears. If you're on your way home want to get your thoughts about the bears because it is a bear down Monday on this program. The bears beat the Rams what a terrific victory for the bears in such a win for once. Again, the bears defense in a big way. I want to get your thoughts of who gets the game ball for this particular team the spirit team someone on offense and defense. One of the coaches, you tell me three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. I wrote down six different names whom who should be able to get a game ball for this effort. Again. I think it's a big game coming in. I just thought it was a big test. The bears were able to answer that big test for sure as a defeat the Rams on Sunday night football national television audience now is wondering like, okay. So the so the bears beat the Rams the what does this mean? It means that the bears are on their way to the playoffs. That's what gates. It also says that maybe the Rams did peak too early. Let's go the phone lines and talk to you again, we broadcast live from the broken barrel near Lincoln park football night in Chicago sponsored by Miller lite as we go to Doniger gurnee leads us off your and our beer down Monday on ESPN one thousand. Hi, dan. Hey, what's up buddy James van James gurney? Man. What what are you say? Hey, really quickly. The game ball Daniels man, just because he really struggled last week. You're nineteen year old kid going up against man shrine every year a kid when you're nineteen playing against your uncle. So first of all, I think the kid really stepped it up a little bit about Trubisky a huge win for our franchise for our city. So a little bit about Trubisky. I play quarterback my whole life. I've got a professional clearly on my radio with you. But I see him out there used to call him button hooks stop in zone. He's having trouble with the patient routes throwing the ball around trying to flow the theme routes found the field. The post patterns, maybe bigger out. He throws a really good ball. It really really does. I know. Hoax. I used to call them. But he seems like he's having some trouble and the patient. I something that scares me a little bit because that's something necessarily Kenya. Learn them anticipation routes it looks like he's dropping his shoulder. But I'm gonna give it to Daniels relatives because of the way they have just the way he played against that against one probably one of the best defensive players in the game at nineteen year old kid really really stepped up after top week. So huge win for us. Huge win for the fans for the franchise. It was exciting, Matt. So I love your show and Baird out are a bear down. James? We appreciate the cell phone call. Now, you see James leaves on open for you three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. He talked about Trubisky. There have just for a moment. And that's why I say I'm looking forward to seeing what's happens with the Green Bay game because two weeks off coming in this game strong defensive line for sure secondary by the Rams. But definitely when you think about how strong that defense defensive line has been for the Rams, and and Trubisky. Thank goodness. There was a running game. Because as I mentioned the last half hour just joining us. I said if there's no running game what are the bears offense going to do how many trick plays? Can you can you run to be able to get on the board? And how many times did the defense come through? Because historically what I've noticed and you've noticed it too as a bears fan. The defense has come through more. So than the offense historically, and so when I'm looking forward to balance Taiwan is balanced for the bears. Both ballots will get you to a level that you didn't think you'd get to. And so if you just you it would just defense and just a smidge of offense. I don't want to see the old six pairs again. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three. Seven seven six is our phone number Durrell is in south Holland with Jonathan hood on ESPN one thousand we talked bears. Hello, darryl. How you doing? John was going on. Thank you taking my call. You, sir. Hey, I was calling the guy stole my thunder. I was gonna give it to James Daniel and the whole interior foot right here that line and those guys tripping because they totally neutralized sue end Donal really glad to see that. Are I'm afraid I'm glad you checked in. Appreciate your phone. Call we go to Milton. He's fifty five on football night in Chicago here on ESPN one thousand brought to you by Miller lite. What's up Milton? Happening. Thanks for taking my call. By the way, was that what's cracking right now? Two hours. Go to Mike Pence came here. So therefore Nickelback has San amazed at all season. And we did not listen all decent. NS? I'm not tackled that the Mike told it doesn't the hopper. You give it to share McManus. All right. So let me tell you. Let me ask you. This can ask you about the offense. Okay. So what do you think of Trubisky coming back after two weeks off? Being Trubisky was really really west. That's exactly what I think. I think. Game. Play thing is gave me helped us out with his legs. Thai three quick sex. Helped me get a little metal. So that's always a plus. All right. You gay balsa McManus? I got you down. I appreciate your phone. Call unofficially again on my box core. Big ministers have the most tackles yet seven there might change by the time we get to Tuesday and Wednesday because they always inflate or maybe decrease on the numbers there. But definitely McManus was number one on that list. And it'll defense deserves credit. The defense is the reason why they beat arguably the best team in the NFL and actually in this in this NFL. I'm not sure if there is a best sure about about because you can look at the saints. You can look at the Rams you can't city this prolific offenses, and I'm not there's one dominant team in the NFL, which makes the NFL very interesting this year as anybody can win it. There's teams that are good. But I don't think there's anyone great yet. I think the beers are definitely in that conversation. Now as one of the top teams in the NFL now, they're staying power is only predicated on what they do offensively because the defense is going to be there. Three one two. Three three to ESPN is our phone number Miller lite presents football night in Chicago here on ESPN one thousand and the espionage CUNY any support. That's a lot of background noise. Is the reason why because this place is getting lit as filled up broken barrel Lincoln park. That's where we are. Brought to you by Miller lite. Let me move to Benny in LaGrange. She is with us here on ESPN one thousand of the SPN apples. We talked bears in the spirit out Monday. What's up, what's up, Jay hood? Thanks for taking my call. Appreciate a Matt. Yes, sir. So I got to give the game follows Goldman. I felt like that safety really with a momentum shipping the game. And I felt like the fans really jumped in when they saw the those extra two points put the bears ahead. And to me, I really brought a lot of energy into the stadium. And I think that's a big part of the reason why the pairs won that game because of that safety. I gotta get the game the golden and then plus she's like a grinder, you know, he's not the guy that gets the glory or gets a lot of sacks. So to see that right. Then at that time. I thought that was really really exciting and worthy of game ball. Thank you so much checking in and I agree with you. Mcmanus was not on my on my list of of six guys. But definitely Goldman is on my list because of what what he brings and you can have a game in which. Mac is on the field. Khalil Mack is on the field. Right. And he may not have like sacks. He may not have two or three tackles, but just his presence in which he requires a double team. And then he splits that double team and tries to get to the quarterback. Just trying to get to the quarterback opens up for so many other things on an offensive line opens up for the secondary opens up for so many things is such a major factor for this bears team when he's on the field. He's just the difference maker defense was already good, but doubt, definitely solid when he's on the field for sure Mike is an Oaklawn with Jonathan hood on ESPN one thousand Hello, Mike. Jonathan thanks for taking my call making it. I'd like to hear the game ball to the tornado siren. I think that that tornado siren that they pumped in last night really created enough noise for Los Angeles and golf to that communication. They kept talking on the game about the it up fifteen seconds to communicate in the in the head of the order back there. And you could just see him look into the sideline trainer, but read lips practically. And they just looked like they were like, they didn't know where they're blocking will say. What? At the very last second half staffers enough of the defense dominate like they did I think the fire and really worked whoever abrupt f- APN. Mike, right. I think if you're gonna give us give it to the person who cranked in the tornado siren. All right. That's fine. Anything to win. Whether it's objectionable or not anything to win tornado siren, players coaches, whatever it takes to beat. The Rams ex exactly what the bears did. Appreciate your telephone. Call in Wheaton. Here's Jeff on a bear down Monday here on ESPN one thousand ESPN app who gets the game ball. Jeff. How are you? Hey, what's going on? How you doing? Good. Good the game ball. First all these people don't know football game ball should go to Victor GIO. Sort of preparation that this guy put defense under. I mean, we made sure looks shook you didn't know what to do. All right. I mean, he's what for. I four for ten games under thirty degrees. I mean that indicate you're getting game ball real guy is Matt Nagy obviously with his unbelievable play calling. What he did to get you guys ready for probably the biggest game of the season. I mean, it's Matt Nagy nobody else he prepared every every single player. The scheme especially that call on third down on the goal line to the offensive lineman. I mean is easily. He easily gets the game ball. There's nobody else. Everybody played great, Jeff we present cell phone call. I would suggest that maybe you don't know football. If you'd think that Nagy is the only guy that did something for the bears yesterday. You did see the game, right? There were players. There are actually guys are on the field that we're executing. You could throw any game plan out that you want. However, you need to be Alexa, cute those plays and the players were able to do that. So to suggest that nobody nobody here at broken barrel. Doesn't know anything about football or anyone listening to the show to know about football. As just you know, again, you're coming in puffy chested. And that's not what we do here on a beard out Monday. We don't do that on my right? We do that on bear down Monday. I don't think we do. Everybody deserves credit especially when you win when you lose you point, the blame it everybody because he fell short, but in this situation here, you can have as many. You can love Matt Nagy can love Vic Fangio love every coach that's on that on that team up to the players to be able to execute. And they were able to execute a big way sourcing on the defensive side of the football helped the bears win three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. Nobody knows football. Like, I know football. All right. And Vernon hills. Jonathan ESPN what thousand and the SPN apple O L. Hey, I think Leonard Floyd. Out. With the speed. He's able contain girly which key factor in the way. I agree with you Florida's on my list. Actually, Al thank you. Of course. I'm going to shut out Georgia guy. And Floyd is a guy that I have been keeping my eyes on because I said at the time when he was first drafted if people ask me, all your Georgia guy. You're an SEC fan. What is what is Leonard Floyd Floyd is going to grow into the position? And he's going to be a good player. He's not he's I don't think that he is going to be put it this way. When I saw him in college. I didn't think that he was the reason why so many great place happen. I think that he's going to grow into the position roquan Smith. That guy is going to be a star. If he's it's no question in my mind. He's going to be around here for over a decade. You gonna look at him as one of the all time greats is there's no question about that litter flood, I didn't think I didn't. I always thought that he was around the play not the reason for the play all the time. But roquan Smith is going to be a a tremendous. Mark my words, you don't hear me say that very often in my years of doing. This guy's going to be great roquan Smith three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six our phone number. We come back. We'll take more of your phone calls as we broadcast live here from the broken barrel in Chicago and Lincoln park. It is Miller light football night. In chicago..
"james gurney" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"We'll hear some John Lester he was on the station yesterday. It was really really good with Waddle and Silvy James gurney. Hey, James what's up kit? Hey, what's going on happy? What the different we hear make conscious. This whole situation makes me a little bit worried worrisome. I mean, what is so I guess what I'm saying is this far. Right. And has a huge first half. Guys. Just hypothetical Friday the Hughes. I happened to get a Bogo for that kid. Do you consider him? Like you mentioned with Jesse before that. And he's not getting moved at this point in season. If they were to ever do anything it would be an off season blockbuster deal. All right. Both of them ninety five percent. He's going to be here. And we appreciate the call. James? Thanks, man. This is ninety eight percent. He's going to be here. All I said was that when someone tells me he does not want to sign an extension and would they consider moving him in the right deal? Jacob degrom possibly. That's my question. That's all I asked it. It's not like they've got these negotiations going Chris is very happy making his money. He makes year-by-year his agent does not have a history of long term contract extensions. So that's just a fact unless the extension is for a guy who's had an injury history. That is like Stephen Strasburg who sign one hundred forty six million dollars or whatever it was with the nationals. He had had had Tommy John. From what I hear Chris doesn't want to do a long term deal. And you heard the John Hayman report from last winter where he said the cubs tried, and he has no interest in discussing it. So there it is three one two three three two three seven seven six go to market, south Elgin. Hey, mark. What's going on kit? Cupcake cookie. Good. Hey, got three things. I think I would take Brian for degrom in a heartbeat. I think Brian a little bit soft. In the end the neck. Why do you say he's soft? And Secondly, that'd be p with two years ago. Just the way talk interview. I don't know if he came back from a shoulder injury. I I'm not a doctor, but. Just like that's an awfully dangerous path to walk down to question. Someone's. Injury history. When medical doctors are telling him, you're gonna miss seventy games. He obviously was injured. I get that. I just approaches interviews he's not I just I think he's a little bit. I wanna ask you about it too. Is does his dead? It's still his hitting coach. And as an ex baseball coach, the how do you that Aaron is still involved in? I know he's an ex baseball player is dead. But it just kinda there will be in the wrong way is the coach it doesn't because I know Mike, and he's and we appreciate your call. Have a great day be careful out there. It's raining. Pretty good. Mike is a really good guy. Mike knows hitting. It's what he does for a living. He teaches hitting and Mike sat obviously a lot of success with Chris. And he's worked with Joey Gallo and Bryce Harper. And some of these other guys Dexter Fowler. Went there to hit with him. I'm just telling you Mike knows his stuff, but he's not Christmas hitting coach during the season today. Talk like father to son and the father happens to be more intelligent on the sport than most fathers. Probably, but Chris Brian is a model teammate model. Those guys. I love him in there. And he's a great baseball player. The question is if he won't sign long term, and you feel like I'd have this guy after twenty one. At what point do you? Go. He's not going to be here. We got get somebody to you entertain in a winter where you have openly said we have got to get better. Our offense is broken. Do. You make yourself better by moving one of your best and one of the game's best offensive players to get something else back. Do you make yourself worse? There's a lot of questions be asked for this. But they've got a lot of work to do up there. That's a really good team. That's a dodger team that's gonna keep spending. And maybe they keep Manny Machado. My question is on the dodgers and Manny Machado. Cory Seager is coming back. Justin Turner, as two more years left at thirty seven total. Oh. And they're in the for the third straight year. So the division. I mean, listen with Jesse was already saying just about how the divisions getting better. I mean, this is this is an uphill battle. Right. Cardinals are going to spend you've got to make sure you are doing the best thing you can put that team in position to advance. And that offense second half, not good. It's just the fact Paul is in lake forest, Illinois. Hey, Paul what's up kit. Hey, good show. Thanks, man. You're listening. I'm me give you an informed opinion. If I may please make it quick. Yeah. This is going to make a statement about what the cubs did a Bryant on his one year contract is getting that extra year on him. So he's going to make a statement. And he's not gonna resign with the cubs. He's got two little tears and that shoulder, and how would you know that? And I can just tell you that. He does. Okay. From the swing for the uppercut. I'm not blaming his father. I'm not blaming anybody. I'm just saying it's from this uppercut swing announced recovery for this thing would be about two or three months, maybe even faster, and they got a decision to make whether they're going to do a surgery here in the off season college just a little clean up or they wait till next year. Hope it recovers to rehab, and he doesn't have it happen next year before he's going for the big contract. So yeah. Well, he's got three more seasons. They control him three more. So all they've got him locked through twenty twenty one. He's there's. So long way to go kid the call. Thanks a lot John Lester Waddle and Silvy last night. The question was asked are you surprised about Theo's comments about the team having a lack of urgency pay? Attention is really interesting. You know, like a. Always says. In our business. We have you know, we have bosses and feels our boss, and he obviously saw something that lacked the in our in our team throughout the year. You know, he he sees it as a different view than we see it and. You know, if he feels that way. Then then he's probably right. I think. You know, I think there's any. You know, it's such a long long season. I think you go through spurts for. Yeah. You may not necessarily lock dispenser. Versus may be. You're in a rut, you know, mentally, physically whatever may be. You know, I know that that halfway through September or whatever it was. The way through September grind for us as a team to get through that month with the travel on a schedule and. Obviously, the rain out you can't control. And you gotta play those games often. He's, you know, those off days the structure important only for your, you know, your rotation. But especially for your your guys, your your your main guys that are beat up you. You're the dog in the fight of fighting for that division. You know? So and I think to manage such a long season that I think we've all said it I've been guilty of saying, hey, this is just one of those days, and we'll move on. Well, one of those days turned into game on sixty three you know. So I think we all you know, everybody in the game says it everybody falls in that rut of of the monotony of playing every day. And and hey, we got a long ways to go. But when you actually come down to game one sixty three you kind of look back and go, oh, you know, we we may have taken that for granted. We may not have or you know, whatever it may be. So I don't think we're only team that's guilty of it. You know, is it something that you can get better at. Yeah. But I think it's just something that is part of the season is such a long year. So unique year that you're going to have times like that. I don't think there's really any way to change that you know. And like I said, I don't think it really becomes an emphasis until you get stuck in that situation where you do play game on sixty three. So that was John Lester with Waddle and Silvy yesterday. There is a lot of good stuff was really really insightful interview. John when China's into a lot interviews. But when he does the gotta listen because he says a lot. They also asked him. Are you surprised by the noise around Joe Madden as your manager? It's the prizes me one hundred percent. But it's also that's the unfortunate part of expectations. You know, it's the same as for the players. I mean, we we go out there. And we stink. We get booed. You know, and that that's part of expectations. That's part of giving the fans in the city this ultimate prize winning, and you know, you have to deal with those expectations. Unfortunately, you know, our lackluster performance falls on Joe shoulders. And that's the unfortunate part about any game. You know? Athletic sports, eating the professional level, other than probably mom, even golf you fire their coaches too. But. You know, I I feel like it's the unfortunate burden that they have to wear on their shoulders every year that if the team doesn't perform it's it's their fault. And I think Joe is Devon phenomenal job that the past four years. I mean, he's given. Given the the city of Chicago expectations for us. So I think you gotta look at that. You gotta look at the season. I think you know, we're still fresh. I mean, we're we're literally week removed from from losing. So, you know, everybody's still got that bitter taste in your mouth. And and rightfully so. But I think everybody needs to step back and realize, you know, we lost, you know. How many how many but three major guys on our team, maybe not necessarily all at the same time. But Bernie standard period of time lost. There are MVP Kris Bryant for how many days we lost our closer for how many days thirty pitchers how many days we still on ninety five. And you know, I mean, I don't people don't want to hear we made the playoffs. But we did make the playoffs. Obviously that didn't go as well as we we'd wanted to. But I think I think you gotta look at what we were able to overcome. You know, obviously with the negatives as well. So that doesn't I think you gotta put all the positives shoulders Jody's. Unbelievable job mentioned bullpen all year without a closer. You know, we still go down and makes a huge trade for Cole hamels, and he steps in and kind of at a time where we needed some somebody to give us a solid start. He came in. And did that and it was kinda like we fed off him. It was like, you know, kind of new blood new person. And then it was like we got into a rhythm when he got here. You know, cow started doing what Kyle does Q start throwing the ball. Unbelievable. I got back into my rhythm. After the break. You know, Bonnie did a great job of picking up Darvish all year. So you know, I feel like we overcame a lot. But we still came up short. So I think there are some positives that we can take from this. And we're going to go forward with. It and it's gonna make a stronger as a unit it's gonna make Joe stronger as a manager. You know, I think when you go through adversity can only bring everybody closer. And I think that's what it's gonna do to our group. You know, I read some stuff guys who said about Joan, I completely agree player wise hobby grade after that game, you know, we we all got jobs back, and we all believe in what he does, you know? But like I said the unfortunate part is when you provide expectations for a city. This is this is stuff. We're going to have to deal with and we'll get through that was John Lester yesterday with Waddle and Silvy really really good stuff. There until Madden. Now, they all have his back. And again, if we opened up the phone lines and talking about Joe Madden. We could take fourteen hours straight of calls, and the majority would probably be like, I don't know about that. Got it all he does is average well over ninety wins since he's been a manager here. So you can just tell you, folks. That's the same stuff. We hear off the air when we ask these guys in the clubhouse or we see them in some event in control the clubhouse to to hear those guys. And how they talk about him. That's the leader of the clubhouse and Wester. There's no dissension. Everybody's on the same page there. And there's a lot to be said for that for team that's cheap such wild inconsistent. Success? Unbelievable. So that's where they're at on. Joe madden. Three one two three three two three seven seven six. We'll take a fast time out and get some of these calls again next. Hey, it's Transi here.
