"Live from the rich eisen show studio in Los Angeles. I haven't seen a single play where I thought that guy's a dirty player at all. Earlier on the show. Tampa Bay times bucks writer Rick Stroud. ESPN college basketball analyst Jay villas. Longtime busting globe Columbus, bob Bryan, coming up. ESPN NFL reporter Jeff Darlington and now. It's rich. Power number three of the rich hasn't show us on the air. 8 four four two O four rich numbered it down. If you're on hold stand hold, we'll take your phone calls, hour number three of this program. We've already chatted with bob Ryan of The Boston Globe formerly now with the SPN forever and a day. He's got a new book on baseball out called in scoring position 40 years of a baseball love affair. We talked about the Celtics big comeback win, certainly with a remarkable fourth quarter performance last night, 16 and 19 from the field in the fourth quarter 6 for 6 from Al Horford and now the Celtics go home and have an opportunity to just win at home and knock out the defending NBA champion Milwaukee Bucks, we also talked with Jay billis at the top of last hour about the new NIL ruling that the division one board of directors made trying to remove the collectives that have been formed across this country by boosters putting in a whole bunch of money to figure out how to create deals for players as opposed to just deals players getting deals organically based on their name image and likeness. Now, these collectives have been formed to incentivize players or induce players to appear at schools as opposed to these NIL deals rewarding players for their name Imogen likeness already out of school. You could pretty much guess Jay thinks that it's just a drop of water in the ocean that's not going to work. Our number one, we had Rick Stroud on the program from the Tampa Bay times to try and figure out how to make heads or tails of the top story of the day. If you missed any of it, YouTube dot com slash rich eisen show for those who you were not been here for the first two hours of the program. Susie Schuster sitting in for Chris brockman in his chair as soon as you've got some news update coming up in the middle of this hour. I do it. I'm ready. Okay, very good. Mike del tofo is wearing glasses for the first time saying he's needed them for years. That might be the top story. As soon as that in your news update later on, I think we need to repeat the top story of the breaking news. That could be breaking that certainly was for us. And now we understand how he's been breaking things around here for the last 7 plus years. TJ Jefferson good to see you and your position. Well, it's good to be seen, Rick. Excellent. And joining us here at the top of this hour to talk about the top story of the day. And that is Tom Brady. Announcing or Fox announcing Fox writ large, not Fox Sports, but the fox majordomo, Loughlin Murdoch, announcing that Tom Brady has agreed to call games for Fox Sports in their number one NFL booth once he's done playing. So that news came today. So we figured there's only two people on the planet who have retired Tom Brady. Loughlin Murdoch and this man, Jeff Darlington of ESPN joining me here on the Mercedes Benz Vance phone line on the rich eisen show. How are you doing, Jeff? That's.

"Can give me credit. Wow. Although Jeff Darlington just said, it's not about the running backs down. He may have been wrong. Jeff was wrong about Brady's. Oh, no, he wasn't. Brady did in fact retire. Coming up, shams charania. Never said the R word. When embiid made that shot. Oh, I was give me the snapshot. All right, so I'm first of all, I put on Twitter, right? Remember right at the end of regulation when 6 was called the timeout. There was like 20 seconds and B took a shot. Back three, 23 feet. And I went on Twitter. I was like, there is no way I can not believe that that was the play call. For him to take a 23 foot step back three. And then almost in the exact same spot. He won the game. And I was like, then retweeted, well, what do I know? By the way, by the way, how about Doc calling a timeout? Because it wasn't going so well. Fires off the timeout to reset. And then the inbounds for that and then he jars the shot. Let's give it up for Doc? Yeah. I was like, 9 tenths. I'm not giving it up. Gotta give it up. He got incredibly lucky. Or the fact is like this. The sixers did not. You don't want your big man shooting a 25 foot fade away. And you can handle it. I'm sorry. You're good. Read all the courts after the game. They were all saying that that's a high percentage shot to them. Was MB taking that shot. Man, they're doing the thing. Come on. No, I mean, with 9 tenths of a second, what are you going to get? As good of a shot as you could try to throw it to them underneath the basket. And B, that was just I went crazy in my apartment last night. I thought, I'm sure my neighbors were like, what is going on? That doesn't eliminate the raptors in the same way that the raptors eliminated the sixers in that building with that 3.8. But that's close. I know. Now comes the dock up big and a series type thing and I'm rooting for him. I'm the go on record. There is zero chance of us not winning this series. Like zero agree with you on that. Also, the sixers play didn't play great yesterday. Howard and filed out in the fourth and they still won. And obviously, you've got to win games like that when you not playing. So just to see that happen without. I mean, I don't know. I'm trying not to get too excited. I feel like a game that Toronto was going to win the entire way. Basically beginning to end. Yeah, because they had to steal it. It's been in the 60s took it. It was a swing for them. It's been battling an illness all series and he had a great game. He still wasn't enough. Oh. Embiid with the game winner, baby. I mean, how do you honestly, how do you stop and be? Like, what do you do? He's a problem. Shams charania with the rest of the NBA coming up hour two. We're all juggling life a career and trying to build a little bit of wealth. The brown ambition podcast with host Mandy and Tiffany the budget needs to help with special guest, Chris browning. You know, I'll give a shout out. I have two coworkers Amanda who love your podcast.

"Been worse, right? So here I am quoting Mike a league of their own. Good point. Because that is one of the best lines in any sports movie history. The heart is what makes it great. That's why we do love baseball. That is baseball. You know? It smells hard. Hey man, you're riding high for three innings and then that fourth one. And then we were times where base running. They could have scored more runs throughout the game and you're trying to teach kids that there's a cumulative effect of not playing buttoned up and baseball is so rich in that type of stuff. Well, just one little thing goes wrong, it can just be proverbial game of inches. But that's what happened yesterday. Oh man. Kind of bringing that all up here now with the baseball stuff. I honestly wasn't planning on talking about it, but so I guess that's the issue with the ice when he got home. Oh yeah? Sure. Yeah. Gotta take care of that arm. But he said, you know, my right arm left on feels just the same way. You know? He's 11. It must be nice. And here I am. I'm looping around because sitting on those benches. You know, and your posture's not great. Dad, why are you limping? 'cause I've been sitting. I'm surprised you're not pacing up and down. Oh, I did that day. Okay. I've seen you on the floor. I did that. A couple times two Susie told me to sit down. So I was blocking people. I was right up against the fence. I know. So what do we choose sandlot? Major league? Yeah, bull Durham saying a lot major league filled dreams. Major league out. I have a feeling major league is going to win. You do? Yeah. Okay. Okay. Well, we got Colin Hanks coming up an hour three. Talk about all this stuff. Later on when I'm right, you guys.

"And he doesn't ever have to say it and we don't ever have to formally do the coach K thing ever gain or the Dwayne Wade thing ever gain, but look, when he left the field this year for the final time and after that land game, I stood there knowing kind of deep down in my gut, that that was the last time I was going to see Tom Brady run out of that tunnel. I would suggest that anybody who cares about the legacy of watching Tom Brady do the same every time they see him run out of the tunnel this coming season. Appreciate the time, Jeff, always. Always enjoy talking to you. I never know when I get off the phone if I'm going to be in trouble or not. No, come on. Why do people say that? Everyone's accusing me of having a gender last two weeks. I have no agenda. It's like when celebrities go on Howard Stern and then they hang up and they're like, damn it. But I don't think that happened. I'm just saying. Okay. Well, we're both from New York. When I'm doing this call against my ear, I'm like, oh, great. Is that a texture? No. We're all good. We're all good. I know people back in back in Connecticut too, if you need, I can love them. It's all good. So I guess last thing for you. Thursday night. When we all go on the air for the draft, debo's a niner, yay or nay, what do you think? I know that's a crystal ball question. It's a great question. Thank you. What do you think? I'd love to see what the Vegas odds are on that one. But I'll say no. I'll say no. And normally I'd say yes, but this off season, I have been conditioned to expect the unexpected. Yeah, man. The other year, rich, I would say, why would the forty-niners trade a guy like Devo they've got a whole firm? Right. This year, I don't, I just, I don't believe anything. And Jimmy G still being on the roster with all that money sitting there that has nothing to do with this right now. No, I don't think so. Jimmy, I think it's more about the fact that the guy can't throw the ball yet. He still recovering and there's not a team that's really going to want to no, I know that, but his money's there in that money could be given to that's what I meant by. I don't think so. I really think this is more than money, man. I know that everybody says it's always money. But like we talked about sometimes when it's more than money, it's a tough one to rectify because money can certainly cure a lot of things. Yeah, does Judd your call up, David tepper and say, hey, how about we'll go to Carolina? You coming to San Francisco. One of the first ever franchise swap in the history of professional sports. What do you think? I don't know if that's funny. He's got the cash flow. Or I'm trying to picture jet. Take care of yourself, Jeff. Thanks for the call. Darlington, everybody. Did he just accuse me of being the king of all sports media right there? Did I just hear that? Blah, blah, blah. I mean, we're both we're both G's from New York City, right? Once we complete the double double next month, we will be the king of is that right? Okay, the double double. You know what I mean? Yeah. Double fisted with trophies. Okay, yeah. Got it, sure. Understood. We also asked questions. We're both on Sirius, XM, right? What else? $600 million contract? Nope. Nope, let me check on that. Don't be too foe in a box. Well, they'll too far. Is he like a Robert a buoy? Would you say? He's afraid. He's more afraid than Baba boo. Yeah, he's more. Fred doesn't talk. It doesn't talk, but he works the board. So I know, but he's a cartoon character like. So he's like a combination of this would be his response. Kiss my ass, you two. It's too bad. If you're not here, I mean, we talk about you. That's exactly what happened in the last commercial break. Yeah. Good to know I got a friend in Jay here. All right, let's take a break. I gave you props. What are you talking about? Props is doing a very heavy lift. Take a break. 8 four four two O four rich number to dial. Check it out. YouTube dot com slash Richards and show we're back here on the rich eisen show. We just played for our peacock and SiriusXM audience. An appearance of Kevin Costner in 2019 way back when field of dreams was shy of its 30th anniversary on this day in 1989 field of dreams in a theater near you for the very first time. Premiered today on this day, 33 years in 1990. It's a 33 year old movie. Love that movie. Come on. And now his daughter runs the forum. How crazy is that? That's good. Gabby Hoffman in that movie is his daughter. I mean, and truly remarkable stuff. Burt Lancaster's final movie. Yep. James Earl Jones and Kevin Costner just to name a few in that film. Poll question to Chris, I know we do this a lot, but we'll do it a lot. So let's do it again. What's the best baseball movie? What do you want on here, rich? I mean, there's so many to choose from. I guess you gotta go feel the dreams. Feel like feel the dreams feels like major league kind of has to be on there. Yeah, bull Durham and then you put the final two can just be whatever. I think you should put the sandlot even though my favorite movie is the natural. I don't know why I can't get off of the natural, there's also a league of their own. The league of their own, which I quoted last week, I quoted last week when Clayton Kershaw came out of the game with 80 plus pitches or 80 pitches in a perfect game and I'm like, you got to go for it, man. You got to go for it because the heart is what makes it great and I swear to you I wasn't planning on talking about this, but I'll bring it up right now. Yesterday, little league coupe. My 11 year old. He did. During Celtics nets. Oh, were you watching on your phone? No, no, I'm watching my son play. He pitched. He pitched. Well, I mean, trust me, Koopa coop would have also loved to have watched it because he's a Celtic fan. He wanted to know the score. So he's on the mound? Who's on the mound? Love it. And so he got his first multi inning stretch. First multi inning appearance. Was he going to pitch count? He was. He was. The idea was right, but it was just there is a hard and fast 100% depending on so many other factors, pitch count in this little league. But coop was on just a self imposed because he hadn't thrown multiple innings yet. Either two innings or 50 pitch, pitch count. So his manager told us this before the game, I told coop he was so psyched. He got through two innings in about 30 something pitches. He reached his third inning of work, all scoreless, 56 pitches. He start? No. Okay, came in. Okay. Three run lead now that he got handed, he got after his first inning of work, they scored three to give a three run lead from the protecting. He kept going. And manager says to me, what do you think? And I'm like, you go for it, and he looked at coupe. And he's like, what do you think? He got one more. That was the last inning. One more inning. And coop's like, yeah. Took the ball. Got on the mound. And then had trouble throwing strikes. And they wound up losing the game. Oh man, bummer. And he was absolutely crushed. Yeah. And here I am, you know, dad, you know, exam was there trying to help out his older brother trying to help him out. He was very upset about it and said that he blew it. And I gave him the line from a league of their own. About baseball, if it was easy, everyone would do it. It's the hard that makes it great. And that you didn't blow it. You went for it. You tried. I'm like, what would have been worse, what just happened? Or you saying to your manager, I don't think I can do it. You know, I don't want to try. You know what I mean? Yeah. And then your team lost anyway..

"He's further up the coast from South Carolina. But you want to talk about an AFC team that's as close to South Carolina as possible, Baltimore is probably raising its hands right now. That's pretty hot. Furiously raising their hands right now, right? So wouldn't you counsel debo to say, yeah, I'll play running back. We can have a conversation about all of that because if I'm going to use all this capital, I want the debo that I've seen in the last several years. That's the guy I want, you know? I would imagine those conversations are happening. And again, that's where this gets like, for instance, yesterday I know debo had put out a tweet and then deleted it after when you said that reporters are just going to make up stories and then everybody was coming at me like I didn't talk to the actual debo Samuels. Right? Someone said, are you sure you talked to debo's annual Samuel junior? Like, yes, I was speaking to the right person. He was not referencing me when he said that. That being said, I know that his expression there was basically that he doesn't love the narrative narratives that exist about why the reasons that people are coming up with about why he wants out. And again, there's only one person who can necessarily fix that and that is debug at this point, but if he can fix that behind the scenes, no harm no foul, eventually the truth will set in three. And I think that that that's fair. And that could prove to be the case. Well, the problem is behind the problem, the problem with behind the scenes though, Jeff, have the niners actually given his agent toward dandy and him, the permission to make this known. To people. And then I don't know the answer to that. I do know the only thing I can tell you is that the forty-niners are very aware, they are trying to do their best to remedy the situation, but I do know that the way they best like to remedy that is to keep people on his team. So to what extent they're going to facilitate a trade, I don't know at this point where they're at. But the phone must be ring. I mean, John lynch's phone must be. He must turn it off. I would imagine. I mean, he's such a valuable player, you know? And it is interesting, yeah, I had one head coach tell me yesterday that keep those best, the best quality of debo is is versatility. Usability to play running back in wide receiver. I think the question that teams are now going to have to ask themselves, are we okay paying upwards of 25 to $30 million a year for a player that might not be devonta Adams as a wide receiver, but has a complimentary skill set that makes him different than any other plant in the NFL. And there's got to be a team out there that says yes. If I owned it, that team would be it. I mean, come on. I mean, we're spitballing here. And this is pure speculation just us talking about it, but you're right, like the ravens, the team that has just been trying desperately every single time a wide receiver hits the market to land that guy, I mean, Devo with Lamar Jackson. That's dirty. The correct. Fact. You're not stuttering. That would be dirty, and we have to look up rules in the rule book to see if it's fair or not. I agree. No, the two of them meeting at a mesh point and then maybe Hollywood Brown taking the top off of a defense because everybody's focused on the play action in the backfield. And then if one of them gets the ball, one of them is going to run you over and one will run right. Through you and he should be. A speedy number two guy. I mean, all I know is, I don't even know. I'm not even looking at what kind of draft capital the raisins have. 14. I've got it right here in front of me. They've got the 14th overall pick, and then they've got a second round pick, two, 45th overall. I don't know if they give up both. Do you want to pipe in John? Do you want to go three way, John lynch? I'll turn him into Julio Jones on this live television show. If you want to. We could pop evil on too if you want. Sure, and I'm sure everybody else would be too. You should definitely do that. Get Brady too while you're at it. Can you get Tom on the horn too? Is he playing? Is he retired? Well, let's get into that too, right here. Jeff Darlington on the rich eisen show. So when you broke the story that Tom Brady was retiring. Back in the back in the day, it feels like a year ago. When was that? I know, right? It was a championship weekend, right? It was going into that. And everyone's kind of like, what's up with that? And never forget it. Of course, I'm sure you won't. So what do you think? Was he thinking of joining Steve Ross ownership group at that time? What do you think of that story that Boston Globe and our Frank florio has put out there quite a bit? There is definitely fire to the smoke. No question about that. I think it's we have to be a little bit careful of trying to connect dots, there's a lot of there's a lot of pieces to the puzzle that don't necessarily need to be connected. And I know that's a weird cryptic thing to say. But what I would say is that certainly the relationships between Tom Brady and Bruce field, for instance, a minority owner of the dolphins had created conversations about what Tom would do post career and it absolutely was about minority ownership. The one thing I'd say to that though is that there wasn't.

"Next in Philadelphia, hello, Billy. Hi. Can you hear me, Paul? I sure can. Thank you. My question is about the Big Ten. I haven't followed it. I hope you have, they've been saying forever that the SEC is just a bunch of pros anyway. And so who cares? But I don't think a pen stayed or in Ohio State or Michigan is going to allow themselves to get knocked out of any kind of bowl contention. They've got to get in the game somehow, don't they? Well, Ohio, state will have no difficulty hanging with everyone else because Ohio State is essentially an SEC school. That plays A-okay. Or different. You know that. And we had a guy on from Michigan the other day, John bacon. And they are, I mean, they're struggling to adapt to what is going on. Now, it may not really matter because I don't think Michigan lately has been recruiting at that level anyway. Penn State's a different type of recruiting animal. They still recruit well, but nobody's recruiting like Alabama, Georgia and a and M right now. Yeah. I just wonder if they'll step it up or acknowledge the fact that they've got to step it up or they'll get involved in the portal or something like that. They just haven't heard anything from them or about them. If you're thinking about transferring and you can go anywhere you want. So I can say I'm better than everybody else. That's why that's okay. Georgia, Alabama, auburn, and Texas a and M I think I'll go to Ann Arbor. I think I'm going to bar. I think that's give me a hard one. Wanted to leave the program last year to go to the Minnesota Minnesota Vikings, but he didn't get the job. Okay. All right, okay. Well, thank you. I'm just curious. I think it's worth following. That's all. It was a good call. Thank you. It seemed like I had said some of that before, but Gary is in South Carolina. You're on the air. Hello, Gary. Hey, Paul. How you doing? We're doing great. Thank you. Good. Listen, and watch your program on a pretty regular basis and hear all the controversy and arguing and sometimes the language and all that stuff. And I just want to kind of change the atmosphere a little bit. Professional contract with the Los Angeles angels in 1963. And they sent me to a place called Raphael South Carolina, which I have never heard of before. In 1963. And I played here that season. And I met a beautiful young lady here in Raphael. And we got married four and a half months after we met. And we went after the season. We went back to California and stayed out there and they sent me to Washington state the next year and I hurt my arm and they didn't know anything about Tommy John surgery and all that kind of stuff back then, but anyway, they released me. And we went back to California and we went through some hard times and sometimes with that anything that he and by the way, the angels signed me for $400 a month. Oh man. And I would have played for nothing if they would have failed me and put a roof over my head. That's how much I love baseball. But anyway, I know this is a question you probably thought about, but had you not gotten hurt? What was your potential? Well, I went to a trap camp and there was probably 200 guys there and out of the 200 guys that were there. There was only three of us that they signed to a contract. I'm from West Virginia, originally from Huntington, West Virginia. And we went undefeated, my senior year in high school. I was 11 and O. Pitched semi finals and the final game of the state championship on consecutive nights. Oh my goodness. Yeah, yeah. Anyway, this is a big topic in sports today. You may have seen it. Clayton Kershaw had a perfect game going through 7 innings. And they took him out. That would have broke my heart. Yeah, and he said afterwards that he'd had a short spring and because of the strike and he the manager was concerned, the manager did this the second time he's done this, by the way. But yeah, you'll hear all about it. It's the biggest topic in professional sports tonight. Well, you know, we only played 7 innings in high school. Right. I pitched 7 inn is a no hit ball on Monday night. I came in and relief on Wednesday night and pitched three innings of no hit ball and I came in. I pitched on Thursday night and pitched 6 and two thirds in and of no hip bow and a guy finally got a single before the ending was over. And so what was your go to pitch? I had, they call it major league curveball now, but it was a drop. The old fashioned drop that you threw at a straight overhand and it fell straight down. But that's not what I wanted to talk about. You must have been tough to hit. Well, there are a lot of broken hearted west virginians thinking about their last time at bat against you. Well, I did pretty good. But what I want to talk about, we went back to California and stayed out there while and. One of the things I want to say was we lost four babies to premature birth and my daughter who is now 51 years old was born two months premature and she made it through and I've got a son that's 5 years older than her. But we went through some hard times after her my arm. We went through some hard times and sometimes when we even went home, but we came back here, got settled down, raised our family. We were made 52 and a half years. And I lost her 6 years ago. She was my heart. She was all I live for. And I told my daughter when I lost her, I said, I'm ready to go with her. I want to go to my daughter said, no dad, you can't do that. You need to stay here. I need you. So here I am, but just wanted to change the narrative a little bit and I mean, no words can be offered to help what you have been through, but what great memories you must have. Oh, yeah. Oh, yeah. She was my heart. She would celebrate a Christmas here at the house. And she was her name. Janice, we called her Jan. And she would everybody would have Christmas presents and we're all open them and everything. And then she did what she called a goody bag. And she knew what everybody liked and what everybody wanted and all that kind of stuff. And she would fill that.

"And Jameis Winston were the two biggest quarterbacks in free agency. And then in a draft class in which we're looking at Kenny Pickett, Malik Willis, as the two biggest prospects, you saw teams try to solidify their quarterback room before they even got to this point in the draft. So I don't necessarily see teams reaching for those players, even though you do have a team like Carolina, which is going to pay way too much for Sam darnold this year and needs to find a way to go a cheaper route and we all know that the draft is exactly that for these teams. So that's the one team you can look at potentially reaching their at 6. So you could see them looking at Willis or maybe pick it and that spot. And the Carolina GM a couple weeks ago talked about how much you love Cam Newton in spite of how he looked last year, I know he had some comments this week that have gone over a rather poorly about women. What is Cam Newton's status right now? You know, I go back to when he first became available before the Patriots ultimately signed him a couple of years ago, it took until August before any team was willing to sign him and that team ultimately became the Patriots. But there was a four to 5 month gap when he was completely available and could sign with any team and 31 if you include the Patriots in that 31 teams were not interested in taking a shot on him. Now Kim might have been asking for too much money at that point, we don't know what he's asking for now. But there wasn't much of a market for him then. And now he's gone through Carolina and he's gone through New England and I personally, I kind of sensed that this might be the end of the road for cam in the NFL. It only takes again. It takes one team, but to me, those teams had their shot with cam a couple years ago, and I don't know that he's done that much in these two seasons since to show any of those teams that maybe now is the time for them to take another chance. And Jeff I don't need to remind you that we thought we were at the end of Tom Brady a couple of months ago. And can you take us through when that story first came out? And it took a while and then he announced he was leaving and now he's back and what happened. One of the fascinating components I think Paul, when I kind of reflect on this past several months is when he, when there was talk from the end of the season to the point when we reported that he was retiring to three days later when he actually did that, you knew that it was festering inside of him the idea of retirement, but it never felt like even when he did retire. It never felt like all of the reasons you would expect for a guy who played 20 years. It almost felt more like when you hear a player just sort of tired at the end of the season. It felt like that. He felt like he didn't want to do the farewell tour this year where every team was saying, oh, guilt celebrate Tom. He didn't want that. He wanted it to be unceremonious almost to where he could just drift off into the sunset. And those were all reasons that don't necessarily feel he still didn't feel ultimately that satisfied even as he was retiring. And that's why I think it was sitting in a lot of our heads that kind of were close to the situation like, I'm not fully sure that he's done, even though he's saying right now he's done. I'd say the biggest surprise to me was that it only took him a month, ultimately to say, you know what I'm not cut out for domestic life just yet. I need another season at least of the football life. Would you seem very odd? And you covered so many of these stories that you always have that final news conference that puts the bow on it and when he didn't do that. Right. You had to think about what is he doing? You know what's funny? That actually he never really wanted that. And that was kind of what I was saying about the farewell tour, the Instagram post that he essentially put out that Tuesday where he announced his retirement in a very kind of simple way. Was the way he wanted it to be. And I guess that to your point, probably could have led a lot of us to have pause and say, this doesn't exactly feel the way you would expect someone like Tom Brady to put a stamp on his career and maybe that's because in the back of his head, he was sitting there saying, man, I don't know if I'm ready. I guess I'm going to go ahead and call it a career. And ultimately, we found out exactly what he was thinking because it didn't last long. Yeah. Great stuff on that and everything else. Jeff, thanks for making time for us. It's always great to see you. Well, of course. Thanks, man. Thank you. Jeff Darlington, of course, was part of that group who broke that initial Tom Brady story who refused to acknowledge that that was accurate, and he did. And now he didn't. We'll take a.

"Two weeks in a day before the NFL Draft, we are bringing Jeff Darlington who covers the NFL. Always good to have Jeff on the program, Jeff. Before we get to the NFL, I know you just spent a week in Augusta following Tiger and everything else along, especially the Tiger part of described to us what that experience was like. Paul, it was awesome, man. I got into Augusta on Sunday, so I was there as sort of things built around the idea that Tiger was going to play. I've never seen a practice round like the one when Tiger came out there and played with Justin Thomas, the galleries were unbelievable. The energy was electric. And I mean, once he made the cut, that to me was his win. You know, I think there was a sense that the injury was really kind of hindering him going into the weekend, but the energy was just, it was unbelievable. Magnetism, like, I've never seen in a practice round and he's still got a man. He is the needle Paul. In terms of just what he looked like when it was all over. I mean, the physical toll had to be immense. I mean, what kind of shape do you think he's in right now? I think it's all the type of situations that he'll be able to recover from it. It's a matter of kind of building into having the type of stamina that can get him through four days. But make no mistake. I was talking to people throughout the weekend that were making very clear that he was in a lot of pain. And even coming off of his Saturday around, you know, he said something like, yes, felt better for him to even be that vulnerable shows you what kind of pain Tiger Woods was in. And that's why I think he was so pleased and you saw the smile on his face coming off the 18th on Sunday that he accomplished something he set out to do. And for the first time in Tiger's career, it wasn't winning. He also made the golf world forget about Phil Mickelson, which I'm sure Phil appreciated. He is going to, he's a defending champion of the PGA in a month. What did you hear anything about Phil while you were over there? I'm sure Augusta also appreciated the distraction that Tiger provided. And look, I think a lot of the golfers that I talked to have been very clear about the fact that they're really not thinking about what Phil is going to do. And I know that all of us are intrigued by the idea of this golf league getting started up. But I think the PGA has found itself in a very confident position. Maybe based on even the comments that Phil had made that put him in the hot water in the first place and probably maybe detracted from some of these high profile players from making that leap and ultimately though I got to say, maybe it was that Phil wasn't there, but I did not sense much of a distraction on Augusta, especially when it came to that new golf league. Your main gig is covering the NFL, which we'll hit a high point in two weeks with the draft. And I know some drafts are so much expectation and surprise as we are getting closer. What is the conversation about the number one pick right now? Well, it's fascinating because a lot of people obviously have it's going to be a defensive player. I think we all feel pretty confident in that just because the quarterback class isn't all that heralded, but the idea that suddenly a guy like Trayvon walker could be even considered it number one is something that continues to fester. And I think the fascinating component of that is obviously that maybe his college productivity doesn't match being a number one overall pick, but the one thing that keeps coming up and I think Dan orlowski mentioned this is that Jacksonville is still a team that could potentially look in that direction. You've got a guy in Trent balke when he was with San Francisco. He was really all about physical traits over college performing and this with walker feels like exactly that type of guy. I'm not saying it happens. I'm just saying it is fascinating as the draft news closer that that is even a major point of conversation. Yeah, and Jeff, he's moved up the so called mock drafts. He's up to number 6 from considerably farther back. What would it take at this point to unseat some of the people like Hutchinson and others at the top? It takes one team, Paul, and we see that with quarterbacks every year. And when you don't have a quarterback to reach for, which seems to be the case, even if, say, Malik Willis was to go 6 to Carolina. It takes a team, like I said, like Trent balke saying, you know, that's our future superstar. And I don't care what he did in college. The one thing I'll say about the NFL is the decision makers are a lot of arrogant men. Maybe for good reason. But they don't feel like they need to look at four years of college tape to decide what a guy can do in the NFL. And for good and plenty of times for bad, that could be the case. So for someone like walker, that's certainly could be the case this year. I've heard it was over last year, I think who just unloaded on the quarterback class, Malik Willis, he was not high on corral. Can he pick it up? Can you pick it up? Who is likely to be picked first and how high could that individual go? Well, you know, like I said, you got Carolina at 6. And I think that what we saw in the NFL with all the craziness that occurred in free agency or I should just say the off season in general with the quarterback position is a result of teams looking at both free agency, which really was unheralded. I mean, Mitch trubisky.

"Yeah, I'd like to talk about Kentucky basketball a little bit fall. The drums are discontent or kind of slightly beating in the background for cafe, but now that he's gone, that was the one school out there that could take a player that Kentucky really coveted. You know, I'm talking like count them on one hand, best players in the country. So recruiting for Kentucky might even get better than it already is. And then a couple of more years, caliper won't have no excuses. What do you think, Paul? Well, I don't think he has any more. And by the way, I don't think Mike kruschev leaving is going to change the calculus very much. There are other threats out there. Nobody's recruiting better than Eric musselman at Arkansas. I mean, they're about to have one of the top recruiting classes of all time. NATO is recruiting pearls recruiting barns. The competitive field has gotten a lot more competitive for caliper. It's just not about Microsoft. Duke is still a brand name. I know a lot of people think the program will completely roll over. But I think they had the number one recruiting class in this most recent year. Reid is in Kansas. You're on the air. Hello read. Hi, Paul, how are you? Hey there, buddy. So I heard that you called Texas and the villain of college football wise. Well, I had Jimbo Fisher on the other day and I was joking with him, maybe I wasn't joking. I said, how do you feel now being the villain of college football because of your success? What I meant really was they have done so well that people are now shooting rocks and bottles at them as opposed to at other schools like Alabama, Georgia, et cetera. Yeah, and they're not doing anything wrong, really, either. Well, no. I mean, they were just using every available means to recruit, which is the way the system is now developed to deal with. Well, hey, I had another track meet today and it was snowing, so. That was kind of fun. Hold on a second, read. It is April 13th. 13th. 13th. Snowy. And in Kansas, you ran track, you were supposed to run track today and it snowed. Well, we shall had it. University, which is a D two college. And it was fun. How'd it go for you? It was a light snow, but it was still snow. We got third in the four by four. That's good. Well, listen, don't despair. Hopefully that will be the last snow. You say, by the way, I was out somewhere a couple of years ago. I'll tell you where it was. It was a Grand Canyon on May 24th and on the way about 40 miles out, I think it was Flagstaff. I don't know where it was. I mean, literally a blizzard. So it can snow light. There are a lot of there's a lot of snow out there right now. We are going to take a break, no snow here. And we'll be talking a little bit more about the NFL Draft coming up in a few minutes. Tony vitello, the head coach.

"At rich eisen show everybody so lots of nfl news to get to That's why we get the best to come and educate us here next on the show joining us from espn nfl reporter. Mr jeff darlington jeff. What's going on buddy. How you doing best. That's like when you get your data shirt. That says world's best dad i like it. I like it. Oh well i'll take it today today today. You know it's it's. It's all about context that you're the best. You're the best today that back on the rich eisen show at this moment exactly and that's what you should strive to be the best you can be in this very moment. 'cause we it's very very fleeting as we know just two days ago. We didn't know that. Aaron rodgers was going to be the green bay packers quarterback. Well i did i did. I've known this for the whole offseason but as it transpired are we. I mean what do you expect from this team. We've heard people talk about. Hey it's a championship roster this this fallout is going to have a big effect on it. Where where do you think. This green bay packers team goes now that aaron back randall. Cobb fits into the mix and rangoon. Cousteau's flat out. You know being honest. Hey we signed randall. Because it was fair. That's what that's what we're doing now to me. The only thing that matters is eh rogers being back. I personally don't necessarily believe randall cobb. We'll make some incredible impact. I love randall cobb. I think he's a good player and provides familiarity with with aaron in this situation but to me. That's not like like. Hey this is the difference between going to the super bowl. Not right me simply getting erin back. I subscribe to the belief that players are pretty resilient even when there's a quarterback who doesn't go through this type of drama even if that quarterback doesn't get along with the whole locker. I'm not suggesting that's the way it is at all. I'm just saying like in other places. This has happened where there is drama. I always think back. Whenever there's like drama we wonder about chemistry of a locker. I always think back to the night. Before the seahawks won the superbowl ren percy horvin and now i don't want to mess this up. It was a golden tate. Got into a fistfight rights. Literally the night before the super bowl like if that if they can do that and win the game win the super bowl i kind of subscribed to the belief that maybe Maybe they hall of fame. Quarterback can come back and do his locker room and perhaps bridge any awkwardness that might exist. Yeah i i. I would suspect it would have to be like west side story. It would have to be like the jets and the sharks in the in the locker room. But i completely split down the middle. And what's what one thing that that possibly could be vice. A factor this year in the nfl is whether or not your teammates are being vaccinated. You know we've we've seen a coach in ron rivera. Speak out about it. And and and his defense right. He's he's a guy who's living in the real world having just overcome cancer and his immune deficient and he's sensitive to that and it's disappointed but We've heard coaches talk about it where they're at where they're going. How what kind of competitive advantage and disadvantages could be is is a vaccinated player whether they are not could be a divisive factor in a locker room down the stretch specifically if if you start taking game checks from these players. I'd imagine that guys will get well. We'll have those conversations early enough to where they can hopefully get through it and get on the same page and as far as how does impacting season probably to a degree that it did last year. But maybe you know like where for instance the teams that were most prepared and most vigilant about dealing with the spread of coded we're ultimately the most successful and that turned out by and large. I think it'd be pretty true. Know the bucks are pretty good example of that so to the chiefs But i think in general. I subscribe to the belief that this be that big of a thing for the nfl. Eventually we're still talking about a vaccination rate of above eighty percent across the league. That's great so so. It's as much as i understand the attention that we're placing on it. Think that pretty good. Nfl actually better statistically than the rest of society and they have a lot more rules in place for those unvaccinated to where perhaps it will address some of the potential spread so personally. I don't think it's going to have as much of an impact as it did last year and last year they were able to get through seventeen weeks season. Yeah exactly It was pretty pretty special. What they were able to do a year ago because a lot of people particularly didn't think that was a possible possibility. down in houston right I don't know if you heard the quote but From randall cobb. He said people were looking at him like he just walked out of prison. So is it that bad in houston. Is it that bad. Houston that it's like prison for everybody else is. They're not a great irony in this jet. Aaron rodgers his beef with the organization and his belief that the organization is so par in the treatment of players ultimately led to the acquisition of randall. Cobb who says that he's so glad to be with an organization that does not make him feel imprisoned. There is a twisted irony. And all this and maybe Maybe green bay isn't so bad after all. I do sense though that it is pretty bad in in houston. Mean if you're looking at thirty. I mean they're away A lot of top your talent and they're not really left with very much so it almost feels honestly to me like like an expansion club right now in houston and then dog. I don't know that anybody would really argue against that at this point or speaking with jeff darlington. Espn nfl reporter The houston situation right The texans have finally said that they are.

"I'm not familiar studies, which is like a owned by the same thing previously were owned by the same key, They only think he comes I'm sorry, but it's like a journalism school and and it led me down. The opportunity with the same few times to kind of cover High School sports and there are people like Mike Stevenson who you know, maybe people haven't heard of these was a sports editor year, but he was like really influential but then there was other people like when I was in college and UF Sal paolantonio now one of my it's crazy to call them appear home. I don't know that peers right we're there but you know, you came to my school and spoke and I remember being inspired by that. So it's all different different types of people different types of influence, but she could always really important to me you've gotten an interview, you know, some of the biggest names in sports and football like real real Legends and you get just awesome genuine answers from them. How do you think that how do you think you were able to gain the respect from these athletes good question. I think two two things sort of I think of led me there. First of which is it's funny when we talk about, you know going from, New Jersey. Is talking about covering High School sports to to interviewing Tom Brady, but there actually is a real important threat. Therefore. I think people to remember which is like a human element. I find when I talked to Patrick Mahomes, I really don't I don't want to treat it any different and I don't think I do then when I used to cover, you know, Brian Fowler who went to my high school, you know football player back in high school. Like I just don't think it's that different because I think that there's a human element that exists and while still being respectful towards the achievements of these other athletes. I think the second you start to talk to them like people and maybe you know respect them as humans you start to get human answers off if you're doing an interview with someone like Patrick Mahomes what's like your preparation? What's your kind of process for that? So it's funny cuz generally back I was right off. More when I used to write for like the Miami Herald you do a feature interview your kind of just you want to create a conversation that leads to anecdotes so you can be much less than a prepared as the right word because you can just kind of string it out a little bit but when you're doing these TV interviews and you've got you know cameras all over the room and they put out the, you know, The Clapper and say oh excellent, for example, you know that's going to suck a lot of the ability to be kind of spontaneous out of the room you have to sort of prepare for that. So you're also usually on a pretty strict timelines. So, I mean, I'm definitely creating questions. That that I think will best lead to anecdotes, you know being strategic about the questions I asked and think okay, if I ask Patrick Mahomes off, you know, how important is it for you to be MVP. I know his answer is going to be well it's a team game and I'd rather win a Superbowl than an MVP. If you can predict that then you shouldn't ask the question. So I think like going through that down size in your mind of if I ask this question. What is the likely answer? And if you don't know the likely answer, it's probably a pretty good question what other kind of tips do you have with your questioning? And what makes a good interview. First of all, of course being open-ended, right? You know the old that's you know on a rule number one, right? Don't ask yes or no question, but I just think that like going back to that anecdotal aspect of it like I don't know just leading them to a place where they're more interested to tell a story. I had it with Andy Reid over over the Super Bowl before the week before the Superbowl was I was doing the zoom interview wage and read and we were talking about like the history of the Chiefs and how he has started taking on a let players create plays for him and I was like what am in your past ever LED you to be willing to like let people sort of just create a play like that and in the question ended up a little this response from him that he explained that he was in Green Bay as the offensive coordinator and there was a janitor who walked past his office every day and he his head instead. I got a play for you and like the third practice like every week or so. He would do it the third year and he said, you know, what here's a here's a card right? You're play down and let's take a look at it and he did and he's like, you know. Good work and you gives the plane of Mike Holmgren that week is the head coach of the time who then calls the play and you said the janitor is in the corner of the endzone to play works the gender jumping up and down like that's my thoughts. Nobody believes them. But in read alternately walked away from that thing, you know, what like everybody's got an idea and and that actually led to the way we completely constructive or teacher story which going into the interview. I had no idea that that was going to take place. I think if you can ask those questions that sort of Just create anecdotal opportunities for your interview subjects. And I think that you'll be surprised how much not only how much better the quality of the answers will be dead. But how much easier it becomes to tell the story when you have such a good anecdote to kind of tie it to what do you love about this job? Like where is your passion come from here? Oh God, so I'm not like a football head like I I love football. Like don't get me wrong like I love the sport and I've always loved it. Yeah, but like I definitely would describe my I feel like you know the movie Office Space from the guys like I'm a people person. Yeah, I feel a little bit weird saying it but I think that that's that's sort of my one of my better off. He's like, I think that's you know, I'm not like the smartest guy in the room. I'm not By no means a stout. You know, I'm more just like a guy I think who can talk to people and maybe get them to sort of trust their story with me. And I think that that's wrong. To me is you know, like that's probably what I love the most about this is when you can get someone to really be willing to do to kind of open up to you. Yeah, how just how special is that when you're doing an interview and just trying to get comfortable with the person and then, you know, you just can tell that moment comes where they really open up to you. You know what it's funny because it's like not something again the authenticity of that should not like like it's not supposed to be by nature of the hook. Like I'm not trying to get them to trust me so that I can get the best answer because that in itself is sort of contradictory and and disingenuous and I remember So I was at the Palm Beach post was like my first year covering the NFL was 2006 September 2005 and there was this guy coming any rights and he was Nick same thing is only headline to that point. There's a USU defensive line. Nick Saban made him cry during practice and a few months later when I went up 5-4 many right lived and I was like twenty-five or something and end up going into this neighborhood and I saw that he lived there but on the place where he was supposed to live there was a for rent sign took place have been cleaned out and I saw him pulling into the neighborhood and I I turn around and I try to follow to see where he was going and they you know, those Sushi menus they put on the doors wage to walk around the neighborhood. Yeah. Yeah. I decided that the best way to find him was to knock on all the doors where there wasn't a sushi menu. That means I'm just came home nice. So I get to it door and he answers it and he was at his sister's place and we talked for a little bit and he tells me about his depression and how he wants to be traded from because he doesn't feel like to understand him and he starts to cry in front of me and I remember driving away from his house excited and happy that this guy had just shared this story and cried with me or tried to me and I remember all of a sudden also being like disgusted with myself. Like you're not supposed to be excited about someone else's play. Even if it means success for your own career and.

You play when you have a guy at that position that you know you can't win wit. It takes it to a different level. I love how floor is coaching. But i do think that sometimes going in and out with fits magic and into mayor. Put this team in kabul unknown territory. About what their identity was offensively and the defense never had a question. About what their identity. Would you bring this on. You answer that question. That's our quarterback. Raise the level of play of everybody around you. Oh and yeah let me tell you why. Because he threw for the most yards went out of number one receive on team this year. That's how good he is. Listen this is a no brainer. I would love to see desha watson and josh allen go toe-to-toe for years to come in that division and see who can make it out and then get the kansas city potentially in the afc championship bottom line in miami. They've been trying to find the next dan marino for twenty years. They thought maybe you're still may have him into a tunga vilo but shawn watson is as much more. A known commodity will see if that plays out. Meanwhile quarterback rumors are everywhere including these that the eagles wanna move carson wentz. We know that. What kind of market are they. Finding darlington has the very latest. It could be very interesting. Plus lebron james having another mvp caliber season. You'll hear why jay williams thinks he should win the academy award as well. That's on the way this is get up on. Espn do you own. Read your home share. You and i bet it can be hard work. You know it's easy bundling policies with geico geico makes it easy to bundle your homeowner's or renter's insurance along with your auto policy. It's a good thing too because you already have so much to do around your home. Go to geico dot com. Get a quote and see how much you could save. Its gyco easy visit. Geico dot com. Today that's geico dot com on. We go get up. And another of the quarterback trade sagas continues this one involving that main carson wentz whom league sources believe is on the way out of philadelphia and the eagles may also explore options with his longtime tight. Ends zach ertz. Perhaps philly could include ertz in a wentz package to maximize trade value. Words has one year and eight point. Two five million dollars left on his contract it look. There's a whole lot of speculation in jeff darlington insider here. I'll start with you as to why no deal has been worked out with wentz yet and one of the ways that i look at it from afar is maybe eagles. Just overestimate what it is. People might be willing to give up for wentz at this point when you consider the contract that he has. It's essentially the same circumstance as jared goff in los angeles and the rams had to pay a team to take him off their hands. So is that how similar or those situations and could that be. What's holding this thing up. Well very possible. Greedy speaking with a source with the eagles who certainly understand everything. That's going on with this deal. And you know the one thing that he said. I said what's the holdup here in his answers february sixteenth. Today lear doesn't even start for another month by a bunch of exclamation points and there is something certainly to that. March nineteenth is the date that they'd have to decide on paying him. That ten million dollar rostov on this. This is the runway that they're working with now. Of course you do want to make sure that you make the most of your leverage multiple teams involved. You don't wanna lose one of those teams and then Maybe cost yourself some compensation from that other team but we can point out here that This this source also told me that there is no no trade clause in carson wentz deal so it doesn't really matter say he wants to go to the colts but they're getting more compensation from the bears. They could just send him to the bears. It wouldn't be a problem
"jeff darlington" Discussed on ESPN Chicago 1000 - WMVP
"It's Sunday morning on ESPN radio as we continue to count you down the week 17 70 minutes away. Let's check in with what's going on with Buffalo, Mikey C. All units head feels 10 and five Miami 12 and three Buffalo. The Dolphins can clinch a playoff berth with a win. The Bills are a F C East champs trying to lock up that number to see Jeff Darlington is there. In Buffalo. Jeff, How much did the bills care about this game? And who are they going to play today? Yeah, I love this week because it's all about some teams trying to get in and some teams deciding whether they want to play for seeding. But I could tell you based on my conversations with the bills. Sources are that they indeed want the two seed. They're playing for the two seed and will start most of their starters. Accordingly. Josh Allen upon digs will be in this game. They are resting three defensive starters. I'm told Because they feel really good about their backups in that situation. So the key, though, here to remember they're playing for the two seed. So if the Steelers, for instance, to arresting their starters and have decided they're okay with the 3 ft. Get rolled by the Browns early. Then I could see the bills making decisions, say at halftime to pull their dies. But if it's anything close in Cleveland between the Steelers and the Browns, And then I see Josh Allen playing there. The entirety of this game. Jeff on the other side. You've got a situation where Fitzpatrick is out because of covert, and that's significant for this game. But what does it possibly mean for next weekend's game? Well, you know, First of all, the Dolphins have to do one thing and find a way into the playoffs. The wind gets then in and there's some certain circumstances that if they leave, they can also did in With that being said. It's on to it. I mean, he's for really the first time. You know, we kind of thought it was two a time early in the season, but this is really the first time when it's on his shoulders completely. One thing I've heard from dolphins is that they don't feel like his confidence has been hurt at all from from getting bench in the fourth quarter last week, for instance, after that, when two it was excited as anybody in the locker room he was fine with it seemed okay. He has a very good self awareness on guy think that he'll be okay. Mentally the question those if you're good enough physically at this point, the simple question is he good enough. And and that's What this team will find out today in what suddenly feels like will be a very competitive date for him entering the fourth quarter of Darlington in Buffalo, Jeff, Thanks for doing this, we appreciate as always, Thanks, guys appreciate it. Jeff Darlington, Miami and Buffalo today. By the way, the Dolphins lead the NFL in scoring defense. They were worst in the NFL Last year. They got gave up. 31 points a game last year, 18 points a game. This year. Coach Flores, coach of the year. Just give it to him. Now, let's go to Philadelphia Big game tonight. Washington and Philadelphia. Washington win and you're in win and you win the division, the NFC East or six and nine, trying to get that seventh win would finish it below 500, But nobody cares they would be in to the playoffs. Sal Pal Is there just how would you characterize the dynamic of this match appear Sao Paulo. He got an Eagles team that is still trying to find out who the quarterback is going to be moving forward in the Washington team, starting Alex Smith with a chance to get to the postseason. Well, it's all about the Washington football team. You see the number of players that the Eagles are not playing in this game. And Carson Wentz is expected to be a healthy scratch tonight. So Jalen hurts, And then maybe some, Nate said Cell So there's a lot of changes coming down the pike for Philadelphia in 2021. Having talked to run Rivera a lot this season there and talking to him last night when they arrived in Philadelphia, you know he is sort of really seconds home for this entire franchise that's been in unprecedented upheaval..

"Brown signed with a box yes B. as Jeff Darlington on that possibility from what I understand has been very supportive of brown almost in some capacity a little bit of a mentor trying to help him behind the scenes to just stay focused and try to try to get you know things in order but the one thing I would point out yours first of all the interview brown has a lot of obstacles in his own way before he was reinstated in any capacity with the NFL so that in itself should keep us from speculating too much about that potential another NFL there's the raiders have agreed on a one year deal with free agent receiver Nelson agar reports ESPN's Adam Schefter Adler's with all five seasons of his career with the eagles concert release veteran quarterback Brian for your the move comes the same day in which the colts officially signed Philip rivers right now in the plant the girl before said is their backup quarterback sophomore point guard Trey Jones told ESPN's Adrian Ortiz nasty that he will enter the NBA draft Jones the ACC player of the year and defensive player of the year the second item was senators players tested positive Coba di di and they are the only known cases among NHL

check in with our friend Mick Foley all of those couple of weeks ago with a fantastic we'll check in with them again on Monday plus what my weekend observation thanks that's Monday and that eleven charge I would need to go out and yes we are ready breaking news the Los Angeles rams have released running back Todd Gurley matter because you know there were people who were worried about longevity because of knee issues around spend weeks exploring a trade for him now Gurley will be free to sign with any team you have to wait long Todd Gurley is signing with the falcons Todd Gurley obstacles home forty played college football at Georgia it's a one year deal for the twenty five year old money back sure that once a Todd Gurley Julio Jones on the same offense service XM satellite radio presented by progressive insurance gas on game night of European shell Pennzoil performance line alongside Nick cattle's and former NBA forward Ryan Hollins on Scott Seidenberg in NFL free agency has given us a gift if you will something to distract us while we are in our quarantine lifestyle of course a lot of the focus has been on Tom Brady going to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the fall out of that eighteen the NFC south as a result Hey is become sort of a juggernaut of a division if it wasn't so already Brady on the Buccaneers you got a couple rams going to the falcons in in you know Todd Gurley the advantage of our there now you got drew Brees who still with the saints and and they re retain Taysom hill Emmanuel Sanders now gives them a number two wide receiver that they had not had in years on the Panthers got a new starting quarterback in teddy Bridgewater is this the best division in football well for fantasy football it certainly is I mean you look at these offenses Scott Ryan holy crap I mean look at the saints in drew Brees Mike Thomas they just added Emmanuel Sanders today they obviously have Alvin Kamara so that they've got just tons of weapons Jared cook the falcons are loaded now I don't think we should get it twisted this is not Todd Gurley two thousand eighteen this is going to be Todd Gurley arthritic component twenty twenty so he's a little different of a guy he is an upgrade over divide Dave Freeman but you know you look at the falcons offense not many questions there I guess you could say is Calvin Ridley ready to be a true number two receiver the Panthers I love the movie teddy Bridgewater Scott you look at his relationship with Jo Brady he knows the offense they work together in New Orleans they've got a number of young stud skill position players and more and Samuel Christian McCaffrey so they're going to be explosive and then you cap it all off the little cherry on top with a Buccaneers with Brady going there and now you've got Brady and Evans and Godwin and brave Howard and Jones offense of Lee it's just going to be a dynamite division which begs the question which defense is going to play the best because I think I would I would say the Panthers are a little bit behind those other teams they're not quite there just yet the kind of resetting with Matt rule but saints falcons Buccaneers whichever team complete the better defense and I would lean towards the saints is likely going to win that division yeah Hey listen that division is the self is always always been tough you know Brady their breeds there is it's a headache but I mean I would argue that the the the NFC west I mean come on man you got the forty Niners obviously you got the rams were competitive Seattle who made a nice run I I I I I think in my mind right now indices indices fell off the way that they fell off the wagon I think that I would go at the end of C. at this point but you know that is that is the south is always always been one of the tougher divisions I'm just not sold on the books guys I'm just not I'm sorry I know who the saints are are you know Caroline is they're big they're always gonna be solid but I am not sold on the Bucks there every everybody else seems to be I I'm not all in like I have to see that Tom Brady has chemistry for one when when he's getting zero blitz and he has to check down in the store at the back of somebody's helmet I have to know that that's going to work I don't know that that's going to work this guys had the same teammates for years and years and years in the same system the same way of doing things I just don't have the same faith right now in the books organization I'm not saying that it's about him or maybe it's a Brady there's just there's a lot of question marks I know when you fall into from having played on nine teams in in in ten different years when you go to a new system there's always a learning curve and is this going to be a situation where he's running through there is office is going to be Tom Brady going man let me let me do what I do and I know we saw happen with Peyton manning paid many just went in there it is mod check their check we've revamped the whole offense the product was put is what clues team is it going to be and now when Tom Brady can talk back in and fuss and you know kind of put his foot down so that he could do a bill check the grass ain't always greener on the other side hi brother yeah I think it's going to be Brady's team and you might look at the falcons as maybe being the favor in that division how about this for the Elias sports bureau no team has started ten offense of players who were first round picks during the common draft error and that since nineteen sixty seven they now have ten former first round picks Matt Ryan Todd Gurley Julio Jones Calvin Ridley Hayden Hurst Jake Matthews James carpenter Alex Mack Chris Lindstrom and Caleb McGary this is a team offensively that has as much talent as any team we've seen in the NFL over the past several years Hey fellas I understand the falcons have a ton of talent we've been saying that for three years it this is Dan Quinn going to get out of his own way I mean honestly he's he's still riding the coattails of the Superbowl parents when he blew the biggest lead that that you could ever imagine to have against the patriots in the Super Bowl and you know over here Morris switching over to the defense last year he's going to be the guy now hopefully that helps them they've been killed by injuries I don't want to make it sound like it's all been on Quinn they've had some really tough luck when it comes to injuries they can't stay healthy but talent yes we can talk about all the talent in the world but I started this talking with you guys gotten Ryan you know I I started this segment saying the fantasy football island in the NFC south of how much talent is there and how much explosion that doesn't necessarily mean everybody's going to be on the same page and one thing I'll say about the Brady offense Arians offense what kind of terminology are they going to use I don't want to get to buried deep into the weeds here but the terminology in New England is very very difficult that offense is tough to learn just ask Miami Brian Florez he got rid of Chad O. chef after one year because he said the offense was too tough for young guys to learn so what kind of terminology are they going to use it as talented as Mike Evans Chris Godwin Cameron brate OJ Howard are are they going to be able to be on the same page as Brady there are still lots of questions talent is nice but it doesn't always win is that cattle alongside former NBA forward Ryan Hollins I'm Scott Seidenberg game night on ESPN radio and ESPN app straight ahead we'll continue with NFL free agency we're gonna keep talking about it but with.
Miami Local News - Tom Brady Expected To Choose Tampa Bay Buccaneers
"And of course Tuesday was dominated by D. B. M. Q. B. they begin with a social media post from Tom Brady thank you New England for twenty years as the day began to wrap up word would come that Tom Brady would be heading south time for straight talk brought you by straight talk wireless it's Tampa Bay that's the expected landing spot for Tom Brady the the official announcement still to come the Brady expected to be a buccaneer ESPN's Jeff Darlington this kind of is because it goes back a little bit in February when the Buccaneers behind the scene started to realize and recognize that Tom Brady was also serious about entering free agency something the sports world couldn't get their minds around but the box early in realizing that it was real so fast forward to this day and I I I'm actually not all that surprised I I the sources close to him that I'm familiar with it have always indicated that what really really appealed to Tom Brady right now at this stage of his life is the autonomy that he's never had the true ability to say I am in charge of me I'll choose where I wish to be what ultimately was most important to him as he was making this choice for the first time well first of all that's a great point I think that the idea that he was running away from something in New England is very true but at the same time I think he loved the idea of chasing after something new and I think both of those things can be true in that regard he was looking at a number of different elements here too he was looking at trying to be with a coach who is maybe more collaborative not trying to be the general manager of the office reported but just maybe have a little bit more input also wanted a roster that maybe had those offense of weapons to reinvigorate himself and then two other factors maybe to some people warm weather actually like the idea of warm weather and the second thing was proximity to New York City for personal reasons and family reasons so they checked a lot of the boxes in Kampala and that's when it really to me when I started to recognize what he was looking for was when Tampa really started to make sense the news of Brady heading to Tampa Bay coming on the heels of Brady saying goodbye to the patriots in a series of posts on Instagram Tuesday which ended his twenty year run in New England ESPN analyst Steve young we got a guy that I think really wants to enjoy the last little bit of his career get with Bruce Arians who I I was a student you check into my career you know mood shows a lot of fun it was really that was the best antidote for the end of a career because you kind of it kind of grows a little guy I don't have the coast tell the same thing and so Bruce Arians is perfect for the situation so granted that's what you get is Tom Brady I think you'll see a guy joyful he loves football and have seen him love it in a unique way no I didn't get to see Tom Brady love it in a unique Tom Brady way that's not you know and that's what it was all positive for the pages of president we get that but I guess I think given tomorrow when he gets introduce is going to be just a joyful happy guy with a great coach have a great time I think more than anything it's Tom celebrating the right to go beam for true free agent I just finally got a place where a coach can could have a lot of fun and okay so what I'm hearing you say is this is gonna be fun for Brady but I mean ultimately for buccaneer fans that think it's gonna be fun for them like are they selling themselves a bill of goods because we are talking about a guy who's forty three he's not thirty five thirty six thirty seven I think the idea of the house Scott you have to kind of James was was reckless yeah he also was very productive yes you want to started to move on and I think you've got to save yourself we can get that productivity special to pull out of the play action game with the talent that we have a Mike Evans and others we can get that production out of Tom Brady even though we recognize there is in decline and that we can bless and we leave behind the recklessness and look at all of the seven point games that we lost under seven and under with nine games they lost by any state can Tom Brady win those games and I think you have a tough time saying no we can't this is not a set deal is not a team that's Super Bowl ready by area you know I get that but it's a vast racial from the box from Tom Brady and they're gonna mix it in and I think a lot of fun enjoyable self comes out worth noting what we're talking about the Buccaneers after his time in the USFL Steve young was a quarterback for the Buccaneers Tampa Bay then drafted many Testaverde because they thought young was going to be a bust Steve young all of him while Brady is heading to Tampa Bay there's also the departure from New England ESPN's Adam Schefter this signs all along the breadcrumbs laid out of Foxboro there was nothing that took place within the last seven eight months that would lead you to believe that Tom Brady was going to return to New England again let's keep it all in mind let's go back and retrieve some history he voided his contract which actually voice today is the day that the last two years on the deal void he said up to avoid that way she said it up to become a free agent there were no substantial of contract talks at all between the New England Patriots in Tom Brady despite the fact that there's been speculation that there would be that the patriots will construct never happened Tom Brady was open minded about leaving New England and basically exploring what was out there listening to other teams yesterday the negotiating period opened it was the first day he was allowed to hear from other teams he believes that he is far enough along to make the decision that I'm not gonna go back to doing which tells you that he had to be in this spot all along and he had to know that when he was walking off that field in Foxboro after the playoff loss to Tennessee he had to know his mind at that point in time that there was a real possibility that he would not be returning there as the quarterback of the New England Patriots I don't think this is a football decision only I think this is a life decision this is a decision involves him his wife his children his family his lifestyle his TB twelve models it goes beyond just football and someone said last week why is there tension wires are just why did you want to leave New England and I don't think it's a negative situation this is a group that was together for twenty years the one six super bowls that accomplish more than any combination in the history

I don't see why they won't do that. So they spend the money on weapons. I feel good about. Yeah would I feel good about birth coming back instead it now so instead of buying shady apartments for your players who already have have weapons he just wants to buy the bottom cut out the middle. I was like two point seven five breasts that wasn't even a pun. Well it was a word vicious indictment weapons is of the front office. That was those rally would tweet something.

The Patrick Mahomes rushing bet. So that was the biggest loss. If you had to over thirty five and a half yards at the Andy Andy was taking knees but he was going further than just one yard back yeah. He was trying to milk milk. The clock a little bit right so we ended up with a think thirty rushing yards. He lost fifteen rushing yards my meals and the the over under was thirty five and a half he finished with twenty nine. Oh my God so we just take normal knees he would have been fine and normally I would say say. That doesn't really count as bad because such a random prop two super bowls just random props everyone bits random props so that is a bad.
Kraft case puts spotlight on human trafficking
"The prostitution part. And I know that's what he's being charged with to act. Of our soliciting prostitution, but it's the story itself about human trafficking. That's going to make this really hard for the NFL just to close your eyes. And hope it goes. Well, because if you look at what medias reporting there reporting his arrests for prostitution. There's very little headline reporting about the human trafficking aspect of it. Every time looked up on our screen with ESPN is Robert Kraft misdemeanor. Does nothing and desma. This is PM. Yeah. And also seeing awesome. Good Morning, America. It's the same thing. Yeah. But so I I did a whole weekend. CNN we until Robert Kraft wants. Yeah. But them when you start talking about the warrants in the human trafficking. I bet you today. Eagles start here. More human trafficking that they will be nice not because I wanna see Robert Kraft Guinea, more Trump. That's the story because that's the story right excuse meals. Egypt. Jeff Darlington says that even if the law isn't going to run down Bob Kraft that maybe the NFL is going to
