"At first glance. Derrick henry is a throwback right. I mean he's two hundred fifty pounds. He handles nearly four hundred. Terry's a season. Even his general approach to training. He stated desire to get bigger and stronger. It sounds like it's from a bygone era but calling. Henry a throwback misunderstands the player. How he is uniquely suited to dominate at this very time in football history for reasons that go well beyond just the fact that he is a big back to understand. Henry is to understand exactly how he's able to survive a workload that has simply destroyed running backs in the past both how he maintains his body and how unique offensive scheme not only relies on him but in a way takes care of him. It's to understand how for example in his one hundred eighty two yard three touchdown performance in sunday's comeback win over seattle. He's impacted goes so far beyond what you can read a stat line and it's to understand how in an era when passing numbers are at an all time high and running back valuations are at an all time low. Henry just might be the most indispensable and most important non quarterback in football. Hi i'm gary grandma. And i'm connor or and we're excited to welcome you to the first episode of our new mid week. Nfl show from sports illustrated and the m qb podcasts. And those of you who already subscribe to this feed are used to the breakdowns and analysis. Jenny brenta's connor. Ni- provide on the monday podcast in this space though. We're going to do things a little bit differently. Sometimes it will be a thoughtful discussion of the week's biggest news topic. Sometimes it will be a qna a with a guest. We find interesting. Sometimes it won't be original audio storytelling. And sometimes we're going to dive a little bit deeper into the biggest stories. we do. At sports illustrated these shows will be unique and with that in mind. We're starting off with one of the most eka players in the nfl. derrick henry. Hey hello gary. So we're going to talk about derrick henry day and here we are I just did a fantasy draft for a friend of a friend who was an elementary school teacher. And i was observing this from afar and he derrick henry is still going top five and everybody's fantasy draft. I picked him to win offensive player of the year in project. Him to to lead the league in rushing again. But does anybody really care about the fact that there should be some gigantic red flags because not too long ago. There was this curse of three hundred seventy carries and when the body is supposed to breakdown. Derrick henry has bested that each of the last two seasons. But he doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Yeah we just don't have running backs that handle monster workloads in the nfl anymore. It just isn't done. Except for derrick henry and you look at the last two seasons. The numbers are pretty incredible. Yes so we'll look at twenty twenty. For example derrick henry including the playoffs had three hundred. Ninety six carries dalvin cook for reference. Three hundred twelve. So that's really the difference between his workload and and sort of the next closest workload and then in two thousand nine hundred thousand three hundred and eighty six carries in the playoffs including the playoffs as zeki elliott at three hundred and one and so since demarco murray had four hundred. Thirty six for the cowboys in two thousand fourteen and then immediately flop with eagles next season no one. But derrick henry has topped three hundred and fifty carries in a season and so that he is coming up at three hundred ninety six carry season now followed by three hundred eighty six carry season and not long ago. We were looking at this says. Sort of just the end like we said Back in the late. Nineteen ninety s the denver broncos that won back to back super bowls. Terrell davis had a four hundred and eighty one carry season followed by a four hundred seventy carry season and never played more than eight games in a single season again. Shaun alexander from the seahawks had that four hundred thirty kerry mvp season in two thousand five and never made it sixteen games in a season again and you can go down this list of running backs. Who have had similar workloads and have broken down pretty quickly over time. Larry johnson comes to mind. Neutron means amman green I'm trying to think there's some other ones here really only ladainian tomlinson is the running. Back that comes to mind that has had a consistently heavy Workload and held up over the course of his career Derrick henry is sort of entering that rarified air and people say well what about adrian peterson. Adrian peterson workload is actually pretty. Well managed over his time in minnesota. There wasn't a ton of egregiously large workload seasons for him It was all kind of the medium high range which allowed him to play as long as he did. And so the question becomes you know what what happens to dare can receive. What avenue does he take from here. And look we're early in the twenty twenty one season but it's working. The first thing you have to know is who henry was who he is and how. He's preparing himself every off season. Hello working out. I love being fit into jim. That the ways running hills. Other things i can just so you know i can coming to training. Cabinet come into season to carry the load new. Be able to make plays dubai. On-scene derrick henry grew up on the northeast coast of florida in town. Called you lee as kid. He would idolize older cousins. Who are all huge and jack so he started lifting weights and guzzling protein. Shakes expecting to look like arnold schwarzenegger at the best or at least hoping to look a little bit more like them and it i. It was a frustrating process He said you could sit there and keep doing bicep curls over and over wake up and nothing overnight change but then his body began to catch up to the process he outlined for himself and something of a monster was born high school. Henry rushed for over twelve thousand yards and one hundred fifty three touchdowns gained more than two hundred and fifty yards a game high school so i talked to last winter. Shortly after the season when he was working out at sanders fit performance in dallas texas. He shows up to work with. Melvin a former nba player. Two days after the season ends each year and begins almost daily regimen. That slowly ramps up his body back into football shape through. Five period is segments that can include anything from lightweight. Training to sprinting up. Grassy hills in the dallas area can on those high intensity days. Henry could be doing anything from one hundred. Twenty pound curls to waited hill sprints out in the dallas back country where sanders really wants him to simulate the level of physical wear after three or four five street carries in an nfl game getting them to the point where he's not exhausted after handling six or seven or even eight carries in a row. I'm sure that's something that mike gravel would thank him for later. Work out a send in dallas. Texas would melvin sanders and really. Just try not his jim and saying about like the The first hour worked out. And i loved it and then you know us getting know each other over timing type of people we are and how we like to work kind of like buddhist saint person in the same. I said.

I disagree with gary but like when you start to do it every week you're like wow like The two of us see the world in completely different like the nfl world and they completely different ways. Like you live in a place where the steelers are going to be good this year and it's just it's hard for me to digest them but isn't that the magic of what gary gramling brings to the staff. That is always the maverick all is i. Don't the steelers are always in the playoffs. Not nap old guys. Maverick rights Let's you know let's afc title game.

"Like this is what they're in the process of figuring out right now. It's it sounds like from the reporting. They balked at the price. Which was i think. The texans wanted three first round draft picks in two second round picks which is astronomical. And cody said. I wouldn't be surprised if the dolphin said well. You should probably figure out the public relations side of this. Will dolphins fans be upset if not our starter or will they be upset. If we trade for shawn watson who has a really terrible reputation right now. I don't think that can be disputed at all what regardless of whether or not investigators find if there is a settlement or if there is a criminal investigation that resulted in charges. It's for all those reasons that you have to. You have to work up the courage to even make an overture to houston. Because you know it's getting out because houston benefits from having this out there that hey all of a sudden there is a market again for deshaun watson if you follow john maclean out. There in houston does a great job of covering the team. He says dish watson is flatly. Never going to play another snap for the houston texans ever again. There hasn't been much in the way of leverage. So we've heard jenny brenta's on this show a couple of times it doesn't seem like the. Nfl investigation is really close to concluding i think the most likely scenario here is a commissioners exemplifies. That seems to be the best possible solution for all of this although if i were someone that truly believed in my own innocence. I'd be really mad as hell. If i were to shawn watson about being placed on that list i just think sometimes we give. These seems way too much credit in terms of the the intel that they're working off but to me. The real story here is that the dolphins felt so concerned with to a that they decided to poke around on. This really inflammable deshaun watson situation. Is it do you think it demonstrates a lack of confidence in too. I think so. Yeah you don't see you don't see teams with teams that are set at the position. Making the call you can understand why philadelphia and miami are. Our line is in as well. You can understand those situations. Those are more unsettled situations at quarterback and good teams where at least player teams that have talented players. That could be elite quarterback away to show watson to philadelphia as much as we can make fun of that head coach in that division. I think that makes him the favourite in that division. Same carolina's in a in a tougher division but carolina is a good team you shots and and robbie anderson and christian mccaffrey and more. You've got a real good team over there. So i can understand why those teams are maybe poking around. Don't get where the compensation comes in at all or how you even begin that conversation. I'd be so afraid to beginning that conversation for this very reason because sports talk shows are going to take it and run with it because now gives you an excuse to talk about all the awkward things that come with the deshaun watson news. The reason why. I don't think it necessarily is an indictment onto a is because he represents such an obvious upgrade right that you have a proven young quarterback and if you've actually and i agree with you i do think sometimes we overestimate the amount of vetting and maybe sometimes these are just knuckle dragging you know. Meet heads at wanna get better. That wanna make their football team better. That aren't necessarily thinking about the broader impact of this decision. But he's just such an obviously better player like you said you trade him into a team in and of itself and makes them a division favourite for several teams across the league right. There's probably seven eight teams. That wouldn't be appreciably. Better without shawn watson as their quarterback and so it really just comes down to. Can you swallow what comes with it. But but again if he can play you can place is a massive question. If you're the dolphins and you have to hedge your offer for him with additional picks from the texans in case to sean can't play. Why are we even having this conversation. Why is the nfl allowing this to happen right now. I think that's the actual bigger question like you can argue about whether or not. Brian floors has confidence in two or whether to schanzer better quarterback than to all day. I think most people would probably agree with you. What he's he has a better resume over the last four years then to a has shown us in the last year or two years. But why are we even having this debate right now when there's this massive civil lawsuit criminal investigation and federal detectives are involved. Because there's a possibility that it just ends up being an eight or ten game suspension. I'm with you. It probably won't like. I don't think any of us know i think the absence of an nfl same. It might have something to do with the fact that they're the entity that's conducting the investigation to so there's probably some legal handcuffs as for what they can actually say publicly in this regard no such handcuffs for brian forest though when when it comes to the miami dolphins and being able to just totally get this out of the way he didn't do that and that's why we're talking about it because i we might have said a word or two on it. If there was a staunch denial that was certainly not it and that was in ringling endorsement of two weeks. Does it hurt to to know. Hey mike coaches still out there. Like i don't have this sewn-up like i don't have the starting job forever. Like i need to play well this year in a way to apply. That pressure is to maybe. Hey we're still looking for a quarterback floors. Hasn't really cared about to his field was ever. I don't think him learning. This does shawn watson like if if anything it's going to make them study more and get like two responded to that here. I don't think it's going to be negative. I don't think it's something that to see. If this news is gonna break to it and he was never going to be good in the. I do find it fascinating. How brian ford has handled all of these situations. Because it's been different. I'm not sure if it's right or wrong but it's been different and surprising each time. It comes across the table here. I don't have a. We're starting to work up a representative sample. Maybe hey this isn't the best way to do things. He is a first time head coach. I don't care bella. Check tree or not. This is his first time at creek. But he's still his own man right like he still has clearly done things that other guys wouldn't do for me. The most notable example is like an openly antagonizing kenny stills in a practice by playing jazzy music at him closer closer quarterback to a new thing was awesome. He's just willing to make decisions. I remember i mean they got so much stick. When they're away at pittsburgh on thursday night and they ran like an all blitz and like the last play of the first half in the aj unlike the final play the first avenue give touchdown and people thought they were taking on purpose..

"I, wonder like, yes this team is severely undermanned in almost to the point where are Adam Gates, Greg Williams just deploying their personnel in a way that they can show their owner like there's literally nothing we can do like this. Yeah. Like look at how bad this is like I can't I can't change anything. But like you know you're not going forward on fourth and sure you're just like you know this team just feels like they have zero interest in competing and you wonder you know. When all this stuff kind of happens in all these coaches are getting replaced and stuff and I'm not advocating for anybody to lose their job in the middle of the season. But like this is one of those, it's like man, this is just so weird everybody seems to be just sleepwalking through this through the remainder of the season and Moore only five games in. Yeah. Yeah. That's that's A. you wonder if they hope they I'll get some other teams covert outbreaks and they just sorta start canceling some these games and.

"Doing some interviews. He's talking about no regrets, leaving Pittsburgh and the money left on the table sat down with the Sports Illustrated and had some things to say about the Steeler organization that the they're not treated like they're human beings. And they don't want you doing outside stuff, and you got to commit twenty four seven to being a football player there. But here is a portion of the inter. View with Levy on bell and has been the quarterback at the time. I'm thinking that's how it's supposed to be. He's supposed to be like, they'd right leaders in. Quarterback. It is was like us doing teammate. And then they. You know what I'm saying? You're not Kevin Colbert. Mr. Rooney several players Antonio, Josh Harris, also said the something's in recent weeks about Ben's leadership abilities. What was your relationship like with him? And was that a factor? Why you didn't want to stay in Pittsburgh? I mean that was part of it. That's part of it. It wasn't the factor factor. Yes. Your relationship with them. And you wanted it to be different. And in a way. Sports Illustrated's Jenny Brenta's with the interview with lady on bell. It's the gift that keeps on giving. You don't realize looking back. Now how how serious this was. I mean, this was deep deeply embedded with some of these players with Ben at least, that's what Antonio Brown lady on belt. So that the two other stars weren't on the same page with Ben Rothlisberger. You know, you hear both sides. Well, we haven't heard Ben side of this. And you probably won't because it doesn't. I mean, what's he going to say, hey, you know, what I fed the ball to Levy on? He's certainly got touches. He was a great player. Same with Antonio. I mean, the number of targets that he got. I don't think anybody else in the league got those targets. But sometimes it's never enough. And I wish them the best in Oakland. And with the jets. Yep. On could you look at the other way? Maybe Ben Rothlisberger might not be the problem. He has thirteen playoff wins to rings. He may think to himself the only page in this place is is my page. And maybe that's the way a quarterback should be. And you get on board with me not. Me getting on board with you. I know it's a very vague. But he does have to rings in in the can. And these guys are young players who are trying to make a name for themselves. Yes. Sometimes you sorta go right in the middle and say, all right. If if sort of what they're saying is true, and sort of what he's saying is to and then we sort of look at it. There's still a problem here. Whether they smooth it over or you know, you make these comments does it change Ben Rothlisberger. This lateness career is bene- leader. What does that mean?.

I mean, what's he gonna say? Hey, you know, what I fed the ball to lay on? He's certainly got touches. He was a great player. Same with Antonio the number of targets that he got.

Whether they smoothed it over or you know, you make these comments does it change Ben Rothlisberger. This late news career is Ben a leader. What does that mean? If you're a leader it by what you say, you know, when he when he blamed Antonio Brown for running the wrong route when he threw the interception to the Bronco lineman. You know, that's wrong. It's just wrong. Nobody benefits if you say Antonio Brown ran the wrong pass patter. If Antonio Brown did that he knows it. And you know, it, but you don't have to let everybody else know it. Unless you're that insecure that people are gonna look at you and go man, he's losing if he's slipping boy, you see that mental mistake that he made he's a hall of fame quarterback. But that's where you keep some things inside everything. Now is me it's out there. It's there. Everybody wants to tell you about everything meeting ends. And all of a sudden somebody comes out, and then somebody's already putting it on a tweet. So it just feels like that is, you know, the sports society now, and Pittsburgh, they released everything they were talking about everything. Now, this guy is unhappy. I'm not getting touches this guy wants out Ben's going to retire member. Ben was going to retire. Now. He's not gonna retire. What if the Steelers draft a quarterback again? No. He wasn't happy when Mason Rudolph was drafted. It's a mess. And I said many times that will look back on the Steelers on what they didn't do instead of what they did do because I got a hall of fame receiver, maybe a hall of fame running back, and I have a hall of fame quarterback, and you have nothing to show for that. Do you think who gets the blame? It depends on what the Steelers do this year like the Steelers thirteen and three the blame will be shifted to those players right Iran who left if they're seven and nine it's like, well, I guess there was a problem. I don't know if you can buy it like that because you lost on Belden Tonio Brown. I I'm assuming you're not going to be as good as you were last year. James Connor did a nice job with wavy on Bill, but he's not lay beyond Bill. And now do I have a can Pittsburgh plugging another receiver as they've done before throughout history. Are we going to look at what the jets do? And what Oakland does with the addition of these two players? And then we'll look at the Steelers now who has more wins the jets the raiders of the Steelers. Yes, mclovin, man. It's really interesting one thing to defend Ben they they lost their defense is stunk. We've talked about that you said since Shazia went down. They gotta fix that too. Well, that's that's where they focused their off-season on their defense. I mean, they have to is that that was that was a bad defense. Yeah. I mean, and it wasn't to defend the three of them like they. I was a defense at cost him a title as much as levian belly. Antonio Brown in bed. Yeah. I don't know how petty had got that. Ben. Didn't look Antonio Brown's way when he Moghadam wide open for a touchdown. He missed him. Now what what slavery on complaining about? God touches then he didn't want. You got too many touches decided to set out an entire season. All right. Why you should pick for Jinyan a win at all next. One more item in the second hour, and it has to do with lifelock.

And one thing that I noticed after the program. I wrote about it a PF t the comments from lady on bell about the Steelers organization. He said, Pittsburgh is a great organization. They've got a great owner. Great head coach, they kind of treat your life. They don't treat. You like you're Shuman. What I mean by that is like, yeah, I'm an NFL athlete, but I'm still human being I still play video games. I still make music. They don't want you to allow you to be yourself. They want you. If you're a Steeler, you're literally playing football twenty four seven. You're not supposed to be playing video games and making music playing basketball. You're not supposed to be doing that. You're supposed to be working out my reaction to that was every team. Is that way? Is there any team out there that really treats the players like human being? Oh, they want that. And I think they get desensitized of the humanity the players because you're constantly hiring. And firing guys nine over Ross got ninety on your entire roster for the off season it cuts down to fifty three. And then you're constantly churning. It guys go they come back. And then the team is always going to be there. Yeah. The team's been there in many cases for one hundred years for a couple of these teams the players come and go all the time. And I just think that it is the exception. The rare exception that there really is a sense within an organization that you understand that these are human beings because if you get that way, your your heart's gonna get ripped out every time you have to cut somebody. Yeah. Exactly. Right. You can't get to emotional attached. You do your best. I I guess the big thing to hear it. Listen, I love levian bell. He's one of my favorite players. I think he's a little bit. You know, bitter personal with some of this stuff to we've never really heard this from anybody in Pittsburgh history. Nobody I mean, this is a standup organization. You wanna go to guys I played with in college. Casey Hampton man, Ryan Clark on. ESPN? They always have positive things to say about playing in Pittsburgh. It's one of the top notch organizations of football. I think the big thing is Pittsburgh, the New York Giants the New England Patriots. The Green Bay Packers. I want to say maybe some of the original teams in the NFL. It is maybe a little bit more of a business and professional atmosphere, then maybe some of the other teams. Yeah. Pittsburg's in there when you walk in the lobby there's there six Super Bowl trophies every day. They're not in there to collect more playoff banners. They wanna win Super Bowls, and that's the business they're in. And that's just the brutal facts of the situation when you're an NFL football player, especially playing for an organization like that. They respect you. But they expect you to be a professional. We don't hear about the patriots playing fortnight or making rap videos. I'm sorry, and it works, really. Well. So I mean, rob gronkowski does whatever he wants to do. Well, he does. Okay. But he'd never lets it distract into football two off seasons ago. Was the first time ever we were like, whoa. He was kind of a member he was at the motor cross thing. And he was talking about I'll get there when I want to get there. I mean that was like the the most push way accurate he skipped off season program last year. Tom Brady was hardly there. And they still won the Super Bowl. Yeah. Well, okay. They have a little different circumstances. As far as Tom Brady has he's in a little different class. Like when you're about to go into your eighteen or nineteen, but I'm just saying still, they treat Tom, Tom. We always talk about Tom's getting lack of love and respect from New England because it's a business and it's about winning football games right now. Does he get a cut a little slack there? Because he's one six Super Bowl rings definitely gronk the same way. But still it's an extremely professional environment. And yet, it's not always going to be, you know, hey, what's your next career venture? And you know, what are you thinking about in other aspects of life? It just it just doesn't go on a lot in the NFL. Here's my assessment. I think there is an inflexibility in Pittsburgh that is no longer practical because the world has changed around. Okay. Because I think the core of the problem between the Steelers and Levy on bell was this structure, the Gary, right? If you're only going to guarantee the first year of a longterm deal, and you have a guy who's under the franchise tag. With the first year is always guaranteed. Why the hell is he signing a long term deal? If you're not giving him any guarantees beyond the first year. It's ludicrous nine so just be like the patriots. And don't use the franchise tag, see the Steelers decided to embark on this path of using the franchise tag. But then they didn't want to structure a term deal the way everybody else does. Yeah. Who has a player under the franchise tag that they want to a long term contract because it's a given. What you do is you take what the guy's gonna make the first year under the tag. You take what he would make the second year. You lump it together you fully guarantee it, and that's what you do. That's the formula for signing a guy to a long-term contractors franchise tag. But shows no we're not doing it that way. Well, then the guy's not going to sign a long term contract. And then he's gonna make comments like that. Because ultimately, that's when you're making them feel like he's not human. Going. Well, you're not really respecting the rest of my life. You're disrespecting me that one year by giving me a little bit guarantees there. I think that's what it all comes back to. That's where I was going to get to eventually. Thank you for buttoning up there for me. But you're exactly right. I think it comes back at the end of the day to that lack of respect as far as the contracts are concerned and a guy like loving bell disrespected. I've I'm touching the ball more than anybody in football on a yearly basis and get my body beat the hell up, and I just want a little long-term security for myself and my family, and that's probably where he feels like he wasn't treated like a human think about this. I mean, this happens in in any line of work where you have a set of rules that you just insist on it hearing to why was this because that's the way it's done it. Well, that's not good enough. Yeah. Right. There's a certain point where the way you've always done things needs to change because the world has changed and everybody else in your industry has changed and just because you've got six Super Bowl trophies. And just because you're the Steelers in it's an iconic franchises. But my conic uniform and fan base. That will support you no matter what there's a point where you have to say, you know, what maybe the time has come for us to change. But there's this, you know, with the giants I said earlier this week I'm gonna get in trouble again for this. But there's a little a little bit of arrogance from the organization Steelers. There's a lot of stubbornness, and that is if they had just structured the deal the way they should have in two thousand seventeen he'd be entering year three of his long term contract and everything would be fine. And he wouldn't be out there trashing his quarterback. Ben Roth is no, no. He would not you're right. I think it all comes back to that. And to what you're saying to you talk about the giants and the Pittsburgh Steelers. You know, it's okay to have old school values. Right. We want. I understand that. But let's not be like all we have such old school values that we never change. I mean, again, I'm gonna use the example again because they are the standard in professional sports. The New England Patriots. They got a lot of old school values. But Bella check is always looking for. New ways to do a contract or new ways to formulate my team or new ways the train or hyperbaric chambers. My coach to sleep. Yeah. They didn't do that in one thousand nine hundred sixty when he was in the naval academy or anything like that. But he said, you know, what this makes sense, I have a brain. I can think and this will make my team better. And I'll also keep the old school values of be here on time work hard be accountable. Don't make excuses and all those things, and I think sometimes that's where teams kind of lose their way there though. This is why we did it back in nineteen forty four. Okay. Great. It's not that time anymore. Change move on the world's changed. That's a great point. He always looking for new ideas. And I see what the dolphins are trying to unload guys. They don't want without cutting them and paying some of their salaries, so they can get a trade and get a draft pick. You wonder did Brian Flora's advocate that because all of a sudden the dolphins are doing this as Brian floors is the new head coach. Yeah. Did he advocate that and Bill said, no? And now he has a chance to do it. And he's doing and he's showing him how can work and if it works Bill ballot. Check will not hesitate to do it. He will do it. Exactly, right. No. And I think I think what probably Bryant floor is. Maybe brought to the conversation there in Miami. We saw a lot of years, right? And let's not forget this when the patriots would trade out of the first round or constantly trade down acquire picks right at more picks and more picks to them when the year was right. Oh, they'd make a move and get Dante Hightower Chandler Jones in the first round or even last year, but Sony Michelle and Isaiah win. But so I think that's ultimately probably would Brian floors has kind of infused into Miami. Like, hey, it's we're rebuilding. Let's get some assets. Let's get the draft picks to make moves shuffle things around and trust that our evaluations will be on point. And that's how we can steal a few extra players to build this roster even better than than we've ever had it back to the Steelers lady on bell has echoed some of the concerns that we heard from Antonio Brown. Antonio Brown went scorched earth. Yes. Effort to get out of Pittsburgh, attacking Ben Rothlisberger relentlessly, labianca bell said that. That Ben is a great quarterback the organization wants to win. Mike Tomlin wants to win Ben wants to win. But Ben wants to win his way, and that's tough to play with Ben won a Super Bowl. But he wanted when he was younger. Now, he's at this stage where he tries to control everything and the team led him get there. Let him get there. That was the same thing happened Antonio Brown. He wants to show up whenever he wants. And the team led him get there. He wants to have a different standard for himself the team let him get there. There's a lot of that the team let him get they're going on in Pittsburgh. And I hope they've learned from that that moving forward you can't let your star players dictate their own terms. The rules have to apply across the board. Just like they do in New England. They apply to everybody. If you're late you get sent home if you're badger getting called out, even if you're Tom Brady, we're not going to tiptoe around anybody. And for whatever reason Ben Rothlisberger Antonio Brown. A lot more leeway than everyone else. We've seen them abuse that leeway in very different ways. But those were two big ingredients in this toxic stew that eventually doomed the two thousand eighteen season and hovers over twenty nine. Yeah. No, no doubt. And you know, and then I'm gonna say this to with Big Ben big Ben's always been a handful. He was a handful under Bill Cowher too. So this was not just a Mike Tomlin thing. So if we're gonna talk about this creation. Yeah. Bill Cowher how to deal with some of the diva aspects of of. Two thousand four AFC championship game rookie season. They lost to the to the patriots. Yes. And after the game Rothlisberger said I played with three broken toes. And Bill Kerr said he doesn't have any broken toes. That was the first moment. Exactly. Right. So that was our first inkling of oh, this guy is a little theatrical at times, again, Big Ben is awesome. He is a phenomenal football player. I do not agree with the way he acts and maybe leads at times. But do I think he's in it for any alter alterior motive other than winning football and trying to make the Steelers better football team? No, I think he is all about that. He's a great competitor. He's a great talent. You know, even when I hear about not throwing the ball and Tony Brown. You know what I think happened this year? I think this was just a first year Tonio Brown's life and big Ben's life where when things were equal, right. The coverage was equal on Antonio Brown juju Smith Schuster. I think Big Ben found more of a comfort level throwing did you ju- Smith Schuster and that probably pissed Antonio Brown. Off as well. But there are guys sticking up like we haven't even talked about marquees pouncey and how he kinda stuck up for Big Ben to expect he's on the team. But that's a nice strong common. I appreciate you always want to say good things about a guy whose hands are gonna end up. It'll be a little more subtle than that. I'll I'll here's one thing. We take a break. But we spent a lot of time talking about the underachievement the Green Bay Packers over the last eight years think about this one thousand four Ben Rothlisberger rookie season, they fifteen in one AFC championship. The two thousand five they win the Super Bowl thousand six disappointment. Cower leads incomes. Mike tomlin. They won the.

"Bella standing by his decision to bring it back to this conversation. He had with SI and Jenny Brenta's. He's standing by his decision. He says he feels amazing. He got what he wanted. The jets are treating him. Like the Steelers never did whatever that means. That he doesn't have any regrets. And that it wasn't all Big Ben that led to his wanting out. But it certainly didn't help. In terms of the holdout, though, I still I still find it fascinating that he changed his mind over the course of the season. So he was just planning to sit out training camp. Then he was just planning to sit out to the by. And then he just decided I've done it already. I might as well just keep going the way I'm going in, and I guess depending on your perspective. It can look like it was a wild success. Ultimately, I wanted to get a long term contract, and we happy I'm happy, and I feel fit into value. No, guaranteed security over the course of my contract of landfill. Bossaso awesomely. I got that. There are plenty of people in this world that tie their security to what what they make what their income is. But the feelers. Weren't balking at paying him. What a top-flight running back even as one is versatile as him. We still know they have a shelf life. I mean, it's interesting that he says I wanted to go somewhere where I feel valued. When you look at the value of what the Steelers were offering him, and the total value is more than what he got from the jets. So I don't really know what that means. Maybe it's how the jets offered in the deal. Maybe that's it. Maybe it was their sweet words, they're sweet talk with bring sweet nothings in his ear..

"How he wears those genes with the extra room in the crotch. Good life. Oh, Andy, we we almost forgot a Super Bowl pick way. Score and scoring MVP. How about that? Yeah. I did mine if you weeks ago still I remember it was it was referred to as the big reveal for the. But you didn't you didn't want to revise it in the time since with all the all the news, breaking I felt like I got it out of the I I felt like I got my chores done on it. I had thirty to twenty four patriots over Rams. I did look at my last day in mobile. I spent the whole day looking through my notes actually watch that lions game again on film to and I feel comfortable with New England thirty twenty four is the idea. I think the Rams are the better team, Gary I think New England matches up really well to the Rams, and if you want to hear more about that we went over all that stuff on Monday. I'm going with twenty seven Twenty-three, which I also picked on the podcast the game thought guests earlier today. Lots of field goals. I feel like we made these picks of a show earlier. We didn't feel goals another other time. Yeah, we did. But then we said, we we pray on it and take some time and then come back and do it MVP. Do you have an MVP pick? Who did I say would win patriots? Tom brady. That's how that works. I'll go I'll say Sony, Michelle, then so we have different out of respect for the people who are still listening because they must be hardcore football fans, if there's still listening this hour, I'm going to say the real MVP like the guy who's going to be most valuable making the difference is going to be Dante Hightower. Okay. All right and et cetera. And run Blitzer, and you need both of those things. That's how the patriots attack outside zone. Running teams. I would imagine high tar will zone-blitz inside. All right. And to be clear. People don't listen this podcast live. They can listen to it at any hour they want. That's that's the beauty of it. But we would talk in a long time.

Including this New Yorker slash Canadian at the moment. Our Laura Rutledge, Laura, you know, I've I almost feel like I need to lake take a break because I have to now read your resume and list of all the things you're doing. So I have to prepare for this. It's so long Laura Rutledge is a reporter and host for ESPN in a number of roles, including college foot. She's airport on college football, basketball, gymnastics, baseball softball. I'm sure I've missed some sports. She's a host of the SEC networks SEC nation. She's now a co host on get up. We learn not getting paid any extra cash for that.

Thanks for joining us today on the sports media podcast. Thank you for having me. It was a pleasure are my thanks to Laura Rutledge. And now we had for our conversation with Kevin Clark. Kevin Clark is an NFL writer and podcast for the ringer. He previously covered the NFL for the Wall Street Journal. He also hosts he can correct me if I'm wrong on this. But I'm going to call it a video short slow news day and Kevin Kevin Clark point joy. How would you describe that? Kevin if the video something yet, if something it's on video, and that's that's all I can describe it as a it's a four minute sort of run through the NFL news, and it's slightly talk show. We have a guest twenty things I do during the week. But it it's kind of defies genre. Yeah, it's great. Which is why it's kind of interesting that's actually really like against just sort of Google slow news day. Kevin Clark the ringer. If you want to check it out. It's a. There's a best live short is where I'm going to put it in the Oscar category. But you can you can make your termination. So the reason why I wanted to have you on this podcast is I don't think this is an overstatement about to kiss your bud a little bit. But it is from an honest place. You to me have you've engineered very unique writing style or sort of content generation style when it comes to NFL stories, and I would sort of say, they're a mix of quirky stories analytically bay stories and access stories and a lot of people I read they might be one of those three, but you're three of those three. I remember reading a piece that you did on like game of thrones spoilers and how like players like a big thing like in training camp. Like players did not want other players to give it up. I I really am impressed by just sort of the the stories and and and unique angles that you come up with. For the NFL. So that's my long way of of asking you a very simple question. If that ridiculously long winded answer, how do you do a question, I should say, how do you describe what you do? So first of all, I appreciate you saying that I think there's a lot of people who are really burst out the NFL. VM hugely impressed with you know, people like Jenny Brenta's who do this stuff every single week? And and it's incredible obviously, Peter King. There's a lot of great enough L writers out there and my colleagues of the ringer hall. Incredible. I think that I when I view a story I kind of look at it as and this is gonna sound weird. But you know, I kinda game planet almost like what coach would I just figure out what would be best. So some going into Minnesota. And I know I can get Kirk cousins and Rick Spielman, and and Mike Zimmer then I can plan for more of an access type store..

"It's not as not a whole lot different between him and what they do already there. But I think he'll teach it a little differently. And then I like either flus to Cincinnati. All right. All right. Let's let's take a couple of mailbag questions before we wrap up the show here this first one this is a this is a voting process question from from Ken for the all Pirlo, and Andy has an All-Pro vote. I do not because I I'm just not respected can ask. What Accu the smart thing. The smart thing here. I mean, I know I apologize. But I wasn't didn't you know? That was calculated. It was deleted than it appeared. I just was surprised when I heard it. But. If it's I'm sorry. It's a reputation here. You're you're a step ahead on this one. You knew this question was leading off the mail bag. I was wondering if you could I forgot the mail bag. I'm going to give bad mailbag answers to the I thought we were wrapping lightning ish round, which I had lived with. But no, no because the mail bags going to end with you getting called out. So we have to back. I know I can I can ask I was wondering if you'd explain how exactly all pro belt works to voters make a first name in second ballot or just rank the total votes for first team. And in the case, many could be second-place guy gets second team at cetera. Second part of the question for a guy. Like tyreek hill was he just the highest vote. Getting skill position player who was not picked at his position or some voters actually vote him as flex and others wide receiver. I was talking about Jenny to Jenny Brenta's about this yesterday about her all Pearl ballot. And this seems to be. It seems to be a little bit confusing every year for everyone there. There doesn't seem to be a lot of uniformity. But the first part of the sandy you just vote for your first team. Right. Correct. And the guys you are basically second-place vote vote getters get the get the second team. All pro the get fifty votes someone at the council, and whoever has the most votes first team, all pro whoever has the second most votes the second team all pro and so on and there's there's there's there's like to receiver spots. Yeah. So what you see in the final team is what we vote on. So if you do vote flex separate from receivers, which is complicating and probably needs to be tightened up. If we're being honest, because I had tired kills a white out Jenny and Peter King, I know had him as their flex guys. And I certainly understand that I thought about MS afflicts guy, but I had other running backs and receivers to take into consideration. It's almost that flex positions just being used to figure out. How can I get an on the team? Yeah. Yup. And it seems like there's still confusion with the edge versus linebacker versus defensive line. JJ watt showed up in a couple of different spots. Yeah. I don't know. Feel like there should just be a list saying if you're voting for JJ watt vote him at this spot, which right they've done that before with some guys. So it's it's. There's some things that could be tightened up with the voting process. Probably it's it's they've got a really good cast of voters. Not just yours. Truly, gary. That's as we know. Really smart. It's theirs is the best of the best actually doing the voting, and that's a positive. It is. I mean, it could be better. I could be part of it..

"So now again, there's a reason Troy's a hall of Famer and has three Super Bowls. Troy had the golden arm and deck does not but they share a and I was thinking about this yesterday driving around. It's remarkable how many qualities I like about both. They are grownups. They're they're never trying to be popular in the room. The first sign of a loser is somebody that walks into a party and everybody liked him. Troy never care. Troy wanna win games. Troy wanna to win games and Prescott when he did that anthem thing did not play well with teammates that did not play well on social media. Grownups don't care about that crap. Grownups don't sit and worry about Twitter got bigger things to go out. And I want to win games. And so control of a lot more in common. They're more similar than discipline or the difference. Obviously as Aikman's got an all time top ten arm. Let me move to this. So the chargers a story came out yesterday. I want credit the person who wrote it Jenny Brenta's. She's very good from the Monday morning quarterback dot com. Jenny's very good. She gives a couple times a year. She pops story now that she's not always good. But she she gets mentioned a lot. She's very talented. So she got a quote from a charger that said they knew sixties dissenti percent of the players. The ravens we're going to run. That's not good. They could literally see what was coming. And by the way, Tony Romo had a great breakdown of the difference between Philip rivers of veteran quarterback. And how he manipulates the game watch this. And a whistle. Rivers is convinced. He got on the jump. This is where a veteran quarterback really makes it difficult. So throughout the game. He lifts his leg. All of a sudden he doesn't snap becomes up. He changes the protection. And next time. You lift the leg. The bulk comes the problem is when you come out of break with time you come in there, and you go, hey, it's on three now. Wait for that. I'm not even going to tell you the clam gonna thick like we're calling a play. And he got him to jump. Now. Joy, we talked about this yesterday fans. Can't see film study preparation and pre stent manipulation very often there. You can see it. This is manipulating the defense in. This instance, it you could see it as a fan. This is a big deal. This is why Brady and rivers are still alive in the playoffs. Okay. It's breeze is still playing in the playoffs. This is a thing that this is what Andrew luck does as well as any young quarterback in league history. Here's the thing we found out this weekend. About the chargers in the ravens and the eagles and the bear show. This. This is a fac knew worked on the NFL briefly. The wildcat worked briefly chip Kelly's.

"S one joy Taylor is joining me in fifteen minutes Peter Schrager stops by Schrager has got the very latest on jobs. We have multiple jobs solved in the next twenty four hours. So Peter Schrager money, man, Mr. information, Peter Schrager will be joining us from New York where the jets are going to hire somebody. And I think it's going to be quick Arizona's going to hire somebody. They may hire. I'm not joking. When I say, this there are jobs that could be filled by the end of our show today. So we're gonna stay on this stuff. Joy. How are you? I'm doing great. I'm glad we're both wearing blue dates bizarre. We've been on a streak of wearing the same thing. We saw it's a it's a psychological thing viewer to think that we are aligned, but we just kind of get lucky and we're blue the color of the Cowboys. And I want to start this hour with this. This is weird. Because yesterday, I was driving home after the show, and I was thinking about the. Cowboys just thinking about topics in my head. And I and I have no idea why. But I was I was thinking about Dak Prescott. And I thought you know, he's got about ninety percent of the qualities of Troy Aikman. And and I'll get to that in a second. But Troy Aikman was talking about him yesterday on the ticket in Dallas. It's radio station. And he said he texted Dak and he said, I postseason when many I really believe that he's going to be the cowboy quarterback for a long time. He's going to win a lot of games in January going forward. I think it's certainly possible, especially if Dak Prescott has what I think he has which is self awareness, which has always been the most underrated quality of professional athletes. Do you know who you are do, you know, your true talent level? Carmelo Anthony's never had it the great ones have it. Like, I think back has it. Jay Cutler didn't have it. I think that has it. Jeff, George didn't have it. I think Jack has it. Cam doesn't have it. I think Jack has it. It's I think Dax gonna win a bunch of games because he has self awareness, and he realizes he's way better off with stars around him. Then making a few more dollars in Texas without stars around him. But I now we all know that Troy Aikman's a legend in Dallas. Right. We all know that we all understand that Troy Aikman Alzheimer. We all acknowledge that. And we all mostly acknowledged unless you're wearing a pom pom here waving pompoms that Dak has limitations. I would argue to you. That they have way more in common than you think. Now, the reason Troy one Super Bowls and is in the hall of fame because he's got a world class arm. And the reason I think Dax gonna win games will never be in the hall of fame and probably doesn't a Super Bowl is. He has a pretty average arm. Arm is not everything there's been a lot of guys in this league. Drew Brees is one without a canon that have won a ton of games. Matt Ryan's won a ton of games era. You don't have to have Eric, by the way. You don't drew Brees without a great arm is one as many Super Bowls, and maybe more in about a month, the Rogers with a great arm, but Troy and doc share a ton of and these are the qualities that I think made Troy Aikman. Troy Aikman was tough. He played with concussions. Dak is tough. Both guys are not concerned about being popular in the locker room. They will call out teammates. They will their business. I guys they don't care if they're popular in the locker room. They don't want to be despised by everybody. But they will take on popular stands Dak Prescott on the anthem that didn't play well in Dallas his locker room. He's like, no, I put my heart on my flagged O'neil that did not play well on social media that did not play well on Twitter that did not play on the locker room and didn't give a rip and Troy Aikman. You go. Watch those old NFL films. He will call out teammates. And I mean, he will ride them. He will get in there. Kitchen. He doesn't care. Winners aren't trying to be popular losers are obsessed by it. They're all neither great. Statistically. Troy wasn't great. Statistically, Troy does doesn't measure up to montana-marino Elway. But both dacanay C'mon. I would argue. We're a calming influence late in games. Troy Aikman was a locker room. With a lot of big personalities. Troy was the grownup. Dak Prescott it's been in the locker room with a lot of personalities, including his owner. Dax the grownup both can take a hit. Both are I think situationally great late in games. Troy was great in the fourth quarter. Troy picks choice to a lot of Troy didn't throw a lot of picks in playoff games. Fourth quarter driving for the win Dak makes mistakes taps. Dax skips. A lot of balls that misses a lot open receivers. He doesn't miss a lotta open receivers in the fourth quarter. Four minutes to go. Gotta beat Seattle with a drive. So now again, there's a reason Troy's a hall of Famer and has three Super Bowls. Troy had the golden arm and deck does not but they share a and I was thinking about this yesterday driving around. It's remarkable how many qualities I like about both. They are grownups. They're they're never trying to be popular in the room. The first sign of a loser is somebody that walks into a party in wants everybody to like him. Troy never care. Troy wants to win games. Troy wanted to win games and Dak Prescott when he did that anthem thing that did not play well with teammates that did not play well on social media. Grownups don't care about that crap. Grownups don't sit and worry about Twitter got bigger things to go out and they want to win games. And so Jack enjoyable lot more in common. They're more similar than dissimilar the difference. Obviously as Aikman's got an all time top ten arm. Let me move to this. So the chargers. Story came out yesterday. I wanted credit the person who wrote it Jenny Brenta's. She's very good from the Monday morning quarterback dot com. Genie's very good. She gives them a couple times a year. She pops a big story now that she's not always good. But she she gets mentioned a lot. She's very talented. So she got a quote. From a charger that said they knew sixty seventy percent of the plays. The ravens we're going to run. That's not good. They could literally see what was coming. And by the way, Tony Romo had a great breakdown of the difference between Philip rivers a veteran quarterback. And how he manipulates the game watch this. And a whistle. Rivers.
