"Utter. My walk outside and get hit by a car. Who cares? There's just that's that's want them to continue to be bad. Because I find it hilarious when GM's just continuously make Ben they have made even they wanna Super Bowl always watch. Yeah. It's starting to feel more and more like an accident that that was what happened is it that Super Bowl season was so bizarre to because you had Peyton Manning on his last leg. Quite literally in some ways he was atrocious. Like, you you could argue forgot about Repin ribbons of prospect for Boise state. Yes. You would have been perfect. Geno. John just sees the name Rippin. Thanks, Mark Rippin. And just like, oh, yeah. I'll take him sign me up. But you're right. That that Broncos Super Bowl that they won it almost feels like they won inspite of Peyton Manning being their quarterback, right and Brock Osweiler carry them through a key portion of that season. And they just so happen to have the best defense in the league that carried them, right? So you're you rooting for the Broncos is the weirdest development of draft night, thus far away from the pack full disclosure here. And again, if you're listening on NewsRadio six twenty WTMJ, WTMJ dot com. This version of the draft show completely opposite of what you if you were listening last night's complete opposite. All right last night professional lot of a lot of respected opinions not going to be so much the case here tonight. But I am I think I hate the Broncos just a little bit. Because a couple of years ago in me and few buddies did a Madden online franchise we picked random teams, I ended up with the Broncos. And I told you exactly in two thousand and seventeen how the Bronco season was going to play out because I did they tried every quarterback that they had on the roster. I did the same thing when I was going through that Altero nothing the guys that they drafted they invested high kit draft capital in drafting first rounders, but the seventh rounder ends up being the one who starts now they've all been terrible every quarterback decision that John Elway has made in Denver has been the wrong one going out and keenum having a tremendous year for the Vikings. What does he he goes on to your contract? He's keenum had not proved that one year that he was capable of that. And what did he do last year in Denver went back to being the case keenum that we had kind of known before that goes out and gets Joe flacco Joe flacco in case seem quarterback. Back statistically, they'd been the same quarterback the last three years Irie how close every single one of their statistical numbers are. It's unbelievable. When you look at the last three years. So that's why I was kinda hoping he'd go out and get Gardner Minhsiu from Washington state. I hate to derail your anti Denver Broncos rant there. But the Green Bay Packers have been on the clock. And now the pig is in they're off the clock. So you carried us through the entirety of the Packers being on the clock with an anti Denver Broncos around here on draft night. We can expect welcome. Yup. That's that's that's what you're gonna get some names available for the Green Bay Packers. And once again, the pick has been submitted. They will make a selection here momentarily forty fourth overall. Twelfth selection of the second round best available on ESPN dot com. At this juncture, greedy Williams, cornerback out of Louisiana state Ryan Finley quarterback NC state, Irv Smith June. Tight end out of Alabama. There are a handful of names here that could help the Green Bay Packers the pick. Once again is in Gable you expecting here. I'm not sure I mean with all the offensive lineman that went that really is going to. I thought that this could potentially be tackled that swing guy that they desperately need agree with you. But I don't think that's going to be the case anymore because those four tackles went rapid fire off the top of the second round here. There is a relatively significant drop off from those four guys to the next sort of tier of tackles that could help your football team. So I think the Packers are going to go in a different direction here. Once again, the pick is submitted forty fourth overall Green Bay Packers making their first selection of the evening momentarily, who's a celebrity picker. James Lofton James Lofton heading to the podium to make announcements two thousand and three pro football hall of fame inductee with the Packers from seventy eight to eighty six about surrounded his NFL career as well. But James lost. And he's gesticulating to the crowd Nashville leading go, Pat, go chant with a bunch of folks, and she's heads off to the right of the stage man, James Lofton's, really milking this time on the station. So what I absolutely he's reading this election right now the Green Bay Packers forty four th pick ofensive linemen. Elton Jenkins out of Mississippi State as a center that is the position that he's tab that on the television broadcast. So the Packers going offense of line game with their first pick of the evening, not at the tackle position. But potentially this could be guy that bounces around a little bit. He was the Kent hold trophy award winner in two thousand eighteen. So he's six five three hundred ten pound center. So he's a little bit of a taller center. Which means I think that this is a guy that can be that swing guy in the middle. Obviously. I don't think you're gonna wanna take somebody who has been a center in college and throw them out on an island tackle, that's not even though he has tackled size at six five three ten. He is a guy that I could potentially see being that guy to fill in at left guard center right guard in case there happens to be an injury. Well, the Packers are set at center as well with Corey Lindsey, right? And you still relatively young in his career. So Aaron Rodgers one word we throw around with Aaron Rodgers probably more. So than anything else gave and correct me from wrong. Here's trust right in Aaron Rodgers has a tremendous amount of trust inquiry Lindley. So I would imagine this is a guy. I don't know this for sure I'm sure we'll hear it from whatever scout steps to the podium momentarily in Green Bay to break down this pig for the Packers. I would imagine. This is going to be a guy. Why that is versatile along the offense of line for the Green Bay Packers did three year twenty five million dollar contract with the Packers. This upcoming season's going to be your two of that deal. And then he'll be twenty nine going into age thirty when it becomes a free agent in twenty twenty one you could potentially look at this as Corey Lindley insurance in a couple of years as well kind of grim long be that guy that swings and can play a number of different positions on the interior line. And Corey Lynch Lee continues to play the way he has. And he wants and other big contract.

"The greatest show on turf, you put your helmet on your shoulder pads on and you showed up and you let your play do the talking. Why is it though when you look back, and you've had to wait now a few years to get into the hall of fame. And hopefully, the waiting does as we can why do you think someone like you who right away? It's either Paula Famer or not when I hear Isaac Bruce. I think hall of Famer why have you been had to wait so long? I'm not sure man. I think there's a process I think it's kinda push towards us that we should think there's a strict process or a logjam as far as the receivers. Concerned, you know, that's not my thinking. I'm kinda like you see the yes or no. And I think you just look at the body of work. What was done on the field? I think every voter should have personally have criteria for each position. I think that would help the process. I think having former players like James Lofton like Dan Fouts in the room. I think it bodes well for players and the voters have a tough job, but they can get a different perspective from hearing from guys like that. Is groups here with us on CBS sports radio. You got the feel of L A Saint Louis now, it'd be in L A once again, what is this week been like for you? And a lot of teammates and more will be coming into town is the weekend does progress just to catch up with some of the guys that, you know, very, well, I'll tell you what is is having a dog in the fight. I mean when when you're actually a player you go through the sixteen week gauntlet that is the NFL season. Probably make the postseason you probably don't get this far when it's over. I tell you what the Super Bowl doesn't mean that much when you're not playing in it. But when your team is in it, and you have a vested interest in the game is just magnified Super Bowl even more because you have a chance to reminiscing and use those memories that you created with guys very long ago become back here and share so this special from that standpoint. And I'm wishing my team all the best, and hopefully, they can call some havoc upfront and bring home another trophy when Super Bowl thirty six happened. That was the super. For ball where the patriots went up early. You guys that made your comeback..

And now it's neck is the story more than anything else because of the bumps. He's got on there. I mean, everybody thought the same thing when they saw two. I mean, it's just like everybody's. Oh, right to Twitter. Let me destroy this guy. It's got to be like ingrown hair follicle. Yeah. I mean, you I'll get one of those occasionally like back here. Clerides, dude.

I think when you shave the same place over and over again, if you have someone with thick hair like when it grows back. It's ingrown hairs, and it gets gross like that. But his his exceptionally bad. Let's go to Richard Middletown, rich, what's happening. Hey, guys, great show, boomer big fan. Thank you. Hey, not that it had anything to do with the interception at the end of the eagles game. But it seemed a little rush that play. And I know I was thinking about it. And even the commentators said something about it. Why didn't they run it down to the two minute warning take their time? They were short a time out already. So why does that play seem a little Rushton? And maybe he was a little distracted. Maybe he was well it seem- rush because they wanted to get the ball off before the two minute warning. As a matter of fact, the great James Lofton on Westwood One radio was basically advocating for them, just to take the two minute warning kind of relax get themselves. Right. Just take a step back and just kind of get yourself mentally ready to finish the game here. But it was rush simply because they were trying to get the ball off before the minimum. Warning. They wanted to run it north of the two Americans. They knew that they have a stop clock stoppage coming, but I don't know. It was a play that don't really executed guy alshon Jeffery ninety nine out of one hundred times. It's going to catch that ball. Yeah. I know. I thought the same thing about them sort of rushing and getting that playoff. But I don't know they had taken the two minute warning that he would have caught the ball or not. I mean, I don't think there's different play. Who knows who knows? All right, boomer and geo on CBS sports.

"But I love to ask guys who did it. Well, back in the day about football right now if you were able to play wide receiver with the way things have been geared towards offenses in today's NFL. How do you think you would have done? You know, I got a chance to watch the game. I've gotten a chance to coach it the the players who are playing. Now are great the rules have expanded a little bit. It's very similar to what you guys get into bear. With the Golden State Warriors five years ago. Nobody was shooting a bunch of threes. Now, you get a fast break, it all of a sudden somebody pulled up at three point line, and they hoisted away. So the game has changed. No heart towels going to the basket, and it's the same way in the NFL. There are rules that protect quote, I'm doing air quotes in front of you a defenseless receiver and always thought if I had my helmet on and my chinstrap buckled. I wasn't defenseless. So. Game has changed. And you know, they've made necessary changes. I was just reading where it looks like the targeting rule that the colleges have they're going to tweak that a little bit. Because some of these kids are just getting thrown out for for big collisions. And you don't want to take away today collisions because I think that attracts people, but people love to watch people score. And I think they like to watch even dance even more James. Thank you for the time. We appreciate it safe travels around the country, and hopefully, we'll get a chance to talk to you soon. Thank you. Good afternoon hall of fame receiver, James Lofton. Nice enough to join us on the Fitz and Brooks show said I wouldn't defenseless if I had a helmet chinstrap. I I don't hindsight block manage I foresight. Fuck manage minute.

"Welcome. The great James Lofton hall of fame wide receiver. Outstanding career obviously, he joins us. Courtesy of the guest line on the Fitz and Brooks show, he teamed with our friend Kevin Harlan on the radio calls here in the playoffs James was in Chicago last week for egos bears, you'll be down in New Orleans for eagles Saint James rod Brooks, Bob FitzGerald. We appreciate the time. How you doing today? I'm doing great. How are you guys? Doing is the rain come to the bay area we've gotten a brief respite today and the skies are going to open up again, which means and it's going to be doing it for a while. Which means we will be in our houses all weekend long watching football. Or listening to it. If you have to brave the elements elements is weekend you saw the bears or the eagles and the bears last weekend. Specifically talking about the eagles. You saw the eagles last week. And you'll see the eagles this weekend. I how were these guys pull it off respect to them that they're the champs? So they have talent. And it's in their DNA. But this is the squad that had a defensive backfield the eagles did that was just not very good. And now you've got those guys playing obviously, you know, we talk about Nick foles in what he's bringing. But how the hell are the eagles back in this position again after this up and down season. Well, they they've been scorned point. So when you score points, you put the pressure on the other team to have to throw the ball. And they do have a pretty good pass rush. Brandon Graham, Fletcher Cox, Michael Bennett guys shouldn't get after the passer tossing Chris long. So now the defensive backs don't have to cover for five seconds. If it's if it's three or three and a half, they they've got a little. Better chance of making the plays back there in the young kids that they've thrown in held up pretty well. James when you were doing that game. Why'd you know, you've played all this football player. All's high level football player with all these great offenses. Why did the bears not use their timeouts north of the two minute? Warning. They they could could've gotten the ball back with a minute fifty and no timeouts or forty eight seconds. And one time out why why why did coaches continued to a little surprised by that? And and you know, I don't remember the exact sequence. But of the thinking is I remember when I was coaching staffs. We would we would meet about these things. And and kinda the the rule of thumb is they've got first and ten clock is running. If we can get them in second and seven we'll call timeout out its second in three we're not calling time out because they'll probably get a first down. And then we'll you want to stop the clock where if you use all three your timeouts dip. They're putting on fourth down. If you use a timeout on second three, then it converted to. Second third and one and you use another timeout. Didn't they get a first down? Then you really in trouble. So you're trying to save the time out, and that's so hard to do because everybody sitting up in the stands everybody watching homeless going. They need to stop the clock. Do you need to call time out? So you you can you can overdo it too early and get burned if you can't stop them 'cause I look at I got a team at the eleven yard line with two thirty five left. And I'm just going to let thirty five seconds go down to the two minute. Warning when I could just use the time out in their next play takes five seconds. Now, there's two thirty the next place takes five seconds. Now. There's two twenty five. I mean, I'm going to get it. Oh, they scored on me. Great. I have I have two minutes left. Oh, they didn't score on me. Great. I won the game. Like, I didn't get it. They'd the bears got the ball back with forty eight seconds left. I mean that was a a galactic mismanagement of the clock a little bit of it. But when you get the time out when you get the ball back with forty eight seconds if you have timeouts, and then you can still do some damage so clock management. Is always kinda funky. And when you look back on it in hindsight, you can pick it apart. So is clock management being adept at that? Or maybe getting lucky when it comes to clock management is that a small thing that separates good coaches from great coaches that have been successful. Not really good coaches from great. I think it's good team some great team. Okay. You know, sometimes you you benefit from it. Go back to Super Bowl the patriots against the Seahawks. Yeah, we're talking about this down there. Yeah. Down on the goal line and Bill Belichick done. Call time out and I'm standing on the Seahawks sideline and I'm looking down. And I'm looking at Pete Carroll, and they're waiting for Bill Belichick to kinda call time out, and they don't and that's when they rushed at playing late that they ended up on intersectional. So. There's one that don't check lucked out on you. Go back a couple of years before that he went on fourth down against the Indianapolis Colts. And they didn't get it and the colts score. And then they lose that game. So everybody stubs their toe once in a while. But if you have a good team, you can overcome it, the great James Lofton joining us on the fits and Brooks show. Courtesy of the guest line here on kmby are six eighty the sports leader talking about clock management at something. When people mentioned that in Andy Reid, they don't necessarily do it complementary way we were having a robust discussion about Andy Reid in the chiefs and the chiefs failures and one home playoff game since ninety three and Andy Reed's playoff failures. I just get a sense that it's going to be hard for Andy Reid to go into this game. After the season. They've had this year. They've been so good offensively. And he decides to pull back I would think that after the the lack of success in the playoffs ultimate success for Andy Reid, they when he comes to banishment air. I'm sorry. He hasn't been he has been since world. But he, but he hasn't won. But when people talk about Andy Reid, they do it disparagingly when they talk about his clock management. I just have a hard time seeing him in this playoffs really stubbing his toe again with what he has at his disposal, and and that ability to far. If you hold up for a second he'd probably has the number eight right defensive all the a playoff teams. When you talk about losing Cornerbacks. He played with Orlando Skander been cut a couple of times who was a nickel corner starting on the outside. If you go back to the game that the chargers beat them. They went after schedule, and so they have a couple of weeks links back in their secondary. And. The team is built around their pets. And they probably need to score thirty five to win. Right. And they're gonna have to do that. What do you think the approach is going to be for indie in that? We've seen back in the day used to have Bella checks. They all got Peyton Manning. You know, I'm gonna just play keep away and frees him. So they never get the ball, obviously with Mahomes and everything like that. You know that giving Casey the ball, but can indie, you know, convert first downs run the ball or does India say, Nope. Thirty eight thirty five let let's let's slinging around ourselves considering you know, we've got two quarterbacks that have combined for eighty nine touchdown throws ready in this game. You've got the MVP of the league, Patrick Mahomes, and you've got to come back player of the year in Andrew luck. So I think that Indies going in there feeling pretty good about themselves the way that they finished the season off the way that they played in the first half of the playoff game against you know, a team that they know really well, and that's always hard to do. They gone on the road to do that. And I think it's going to be really. Title game. How good is that chargers? Outfit. Everybody whose left is good right now when you look at all eight teams, you know, the home teams have a little bit of a slight advantage. I look at the the Dallas LA Rams game is is a game where. Really thinking the Dallas may walk into the Coliseum and upset them. We don't know how healthy Todd Gurley is. And that's a key factor in their team. Because where do they go C J Anderson at a great last game? Nobody knew he was even on the roster. Now, people do so you know, you should be able to stop that. And when you're talking about stopping the run the Cowboys during the regular season only allowed seven ninety four yards per game rushing and you've got the two arguably the two or the two of the three best running backs takeout saquon Barkley, you're sitting at home. Running backs in this game and who can stop the other team star running back. I think that's where this game boils down to as crazy as this question is going to sound could any of the top teams that had the week off yesterday. Could they start slow in these games because they've had the time off everyone wants it. But can it be a negative in certain instances? Well, you figure the saints at had two weeks off they ended the season. Now, they ended the C writer Tina to and then drew Brees did not play the last game guys played sparingly. So they'd been opportu weeks. And I was in that same situation. Why play for the Buffalo Bills ask you back to back years? We ended up thirteen and two didn't need to win. The last game. We had already secured home field advantage, and you can start slow. You can start slowing any game. If you look at the saints a couple of weeks ago, they went down and they played against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers down fourteen to three at halftime. They're down fourteen to three with eight minutes to go into third quarter. So they they pulled the game out. You know, starting slow. It can happen to anybody at the other defense Israel stout. That can happen. Also. What would you have done? And you know, obviously, Scott Norwood still lives in Super Bowl fame or infamy. What would you done as a teammate with Cody parkey with the bears? Well, he had he had scored most of their points up to that point in one of his teammates point pointed that out they haven't been able to get in the end zone earlier in the game. And he bailed them out by making the field goals. He had a game winner. He puts the first one through it. It wasn't through with a lot of authority and then the next one obsolete clings opt upright, they're not the goalpost and. Day later, we find out it's partially blocked. So little bit of a bailout for him. But obviously even with the hand getting on it he wishes that snuck through always appreciate the time. Thank you very much. I I am curious. So I I'm positive you do not look back on your accomplished career with any regrets..

"Streaming live at K N B R dot com. Yeah. Man, James Lofton from Stanford University. Joining us. The bottom of the hour. You know, Bob, if we're going to talk about them. Divisional playoff games coming up this weekend. We only had one mandate. We have to deal with the hall of fame. Air go. You got strict rules James Lofton got to be a principal person. The James Lofton has been a part of various good NFL teams throughout his career. And so I think he knows what what playoffs look like and smell like does. He know what a raider, smells like. I will not ask him that question. We have both been troubled over the last couple of days of what we perceived to be. It seems as though the NCAA is is messing with the laws of of nature. And I think this is the the biggest problem in college football today because. When you believe in things, you don't understand you'll suffer here. Here's a prescription ain't the way in messing around with the dark arts messing around with the space time continuum, that's a problem. And this is something that the NCAA is engaging in and Bob, I I am surprised that we were the only two people in sports media who seemed to be disturbed by by what's going on K. So when you think of a new restaurant or a hot club or something and you find out about it or even if you're traveling and you hear about area fifty one made it makes you want to go to these places. Now, I knew for time memorium over the last several years. Okay. Clemson's quarterback Kelly Bryant will transfer to Missouri. Okay. They transfer. We we hear those type of things right? Jalen hurts is going to transfer else. Got the kicker coal Tracy transferred into school. Okay. We're very familiar with that seems simple. But when I hear Jalen hurts. And then today tape Martell of Ohio State have entered the transfer portal. One. I don't even know that place exists. We weren't supposed to know about this. Bob K to what happens to these kids when they go in there. This is how you know the NCAA has too much money. They apparently had built a machine a portal the transfer order that will allow these guys to basically because they're transferring go anywhere they want so just a place, but I will assume that any point in time in human history. So the problem. Yeah. I mean, this is are they transferring in before they throw that forty yard pass. It's an ano of fits open or the DB's. This is dangerous stuff in too deep coverage like like the player movement in college football. But when you have guys going into portal's, these are things that we don't understand when did they come out of the transfer portal. They in there, and is it like in the Terminator where you have to be. But naked remember that. Right. Right. You can't you couldn't go through the portal through Tom. We close. Clothing is this is what happened right now? So I need to. Jalen hurts. Cleanly shaven when he comes back out, the the dreads all gone what I need to I need to know. Dumb and pretentious way to say. These kids have started the process of leaving one school and going to another we need to gussie that up with something. This is all about marketing. I know we'll call it a transfer portal with dumb middle-management. Yeah. But it's dope came up with this. The breathless reporting of they've entered the transfer portals. The process of going somewhere else. Why do we call it entering the transfer portal? Dummies absolute dummies with far too much money too much power. Yeah. I I just I I'm fascinated by this. I do want to get into the transfer Puerto low just to see what it's all about. Well, I wanted to wear it is again once the guy goes in when he gets spit out who's eligible to go into this who's not. I mean, just the other team is other team like a quarterback taking a shotgun snap that the player comes out of the transfer portal. And he's just like, you know, jettison right to your campus. I mean is there music when you walk in, Mike?.
