"And as Jenny rentas pointed out in her weekly Tuesday column, Jeffrey Simmons does lead the league in quarterback pressures among interior defenders one more than Aaron Donald at this point. But gosh, I was just, I was so young and. I just felt so just felt so good during that during that prediction there last summer. Just a different time in our lives. I don't need to remember it. I sounded quite ill back then. You did, yeah, I was gonna say, what contested? Glad that you're feeling healthy now. I don't sound like that all the time, right? No. Okay, good. No, you have the usual nasally high pitch voice, but you also happen to have a summer goal at that point. Don't get me wrong, your voice is super annoying, but it wasn't as bad as it was back then. I do have to give Connor a nod because that conversation was set up by Connor picking Simmons as his best non quarterback player in the AFC south. But this week, when we saw the Titans beat the rams in Los Angeles and it was a performance totally led by the defense. Simmons looked largely unblockable in the game. It was a great time for us to roll out this preseason prediction. And yes, as Gary reference, pro football focus has charted Jeffrey Simmons with 42 quarterback pressures for interior the most for an interior defender of the season. One more than Aaron Donald two S 41. Good for you, Gary. Guys, get ready to remember some more because I think Connor said something this summer. So the Indianapolis Colts put together the wildest winning and losing streaks in NFL history. Frank Reich bolsters his credentials as a masterful coach by steering Indianapolis out of the doldrums following an intense bad luck laden losing streak of 5 games and steadying the colts for a playoff run. Indianapolis season is almost comically ping Pong between unseen weather situations, injuries. Don't field goals, bounce passes and other did the stadium get built on a cursed ground kind of happenings, including one very high profile instance of food poisoning at a non coastal restaurant where the idea of ordering seafood might seem iffy, regardless they emerge stronger and more dangerous than ever before. Michael Pittman junior reaches a thousand yards and the seafood poisoning at the non coastal city becomes a rallying cry later in the year. Fans bring empty shrimp casings and clamshells to games and tape them to wooden signs. It bolsters their belief in the Midwest and in beef. After first downs, they can't be beef beef. We are Indiana. We are beef and it makes the whole community feel alive again and families dying together at the table with their cell phones rotting in distant garbage cans never to return. They begin practicing mindfulness meditation at schools, and we all start to inch back towards the middle again together. The colts clinched the playoffs and a 76 yard punt return during the season finale. Oh God. I hope that part return happened so bad. Also, Michael Pittman is on pace for a thousand yard season. It's like and the food poisoning thing, as we know, it happened to the FC south star, just not a cold. It happened to AJ Brown, but I just, boy, I mean, you spent all summer just set the ouija board, like letting the spirit sort of guide you as to what was going to go on. And just a couple of miscommunications there. But otherwise, that was really close..
"jenny renta" Discussed on Highly Questionable
"Welcome eilly questionable. That is dominic foxworth. That has unicom's it's friday. Let's get going has the. Nfl already messed up there. Shawn watson investigation. So it's an open question now because to recap for you. Twenty two twenty. Two women have filed civil suits against the shawn watson alleging sexual misconduct sexual assaults so many of them stemming from encounters in massage therapy situations so shawn watson in. The meantime has been at camp with the houston. Texans leading many people to wonder how is it that he's playing football or participating in football activities right now and not on the commissioner's exempt list. Which seems to be the purgatory designed for situations. Just like this and in the meantime other people who have been asking those questions and have been frustrated by the way we talk about to shawn watson so often in the football context now because the nfl has not acted in. this way. Has been two of the accusers. Involved who have spoken to sports illustrated for meticulous piece reported by jenny francis in which they say not only have we been speaking to. Nfl investigators because one of the theories has been while maybe the nfl can put him on the exempt list or maybe nfl isn't taking action because they haven't spoken to the accusers. Well it turns out for the reporting sports illustrated. Ten of those women have spoken to nfl. Investigators and two of those women have spoken jimmy wrenches directly and said the questions we were asked made us feel both incredibly uncomfortable and seemed to be asked with the intention of shaming us. They asked what were you wearing at the time of these encounters. Which if you look at any sort of manual about how to ask questions of alleged sexual assault victims you know to avoid and so the nfl and their investigative wing should be subjected to further. Follow up questions here. I understand why people have lots of worries and concerns about how this is being conducted yet. Those women that the two women you referenced. Who spoke to jenny. Rentis has been all over the story. They said not only that the nfl's investigators made them feel uncomfortable. They contrasted it with the police department. They set handled it right. Let them speak interrupted. Didn't ask them these damning questions and that is a reminder not only that the nfl seems to be handling this in a very different probably dubious way frankly but also that they went to the police. I keep saying this story reported as Ignoring the fact that there is an ongoing criminal investigation. The police have also been speaking to these women and the question is why john is not on. The commissioner's exempt. Which i think is the real sort of issue at hand right now. It's been posited that perhaps it's because the criminal investigation is still ongoing. But it's worth to know that in the past the league has put players on the exempt list like josh brown. The kicker kareem hunt before charges have been filed. There is precedent for this and in this case they have spoken to ten women. Others has submitted sworn statements that they refuse to take into account citing their own rules for whatever reason frankly. This is a disaster. Like i don't understand why he is not on the list. I can't nobody has given me a clear explanation for this. And i think this reporting from johnny not only is revealing that the. Nfl deserves a hell of a lot more criticism than they've gotten for how they've handled this but also the media how we have covered this how we have discussed how he couched it in terms at williams speaking. I'm being general of a trade a hypothetical trade setting aside this criminal investigation these twenty two allegations of sexual harassment and assault as though they're amir obstacle to the trade so everybody involved in this. Frankly deserves a lot more. Scrutiny ranging from the nfl to watson to the media brought up. The commissioner's exempt list. I'm not an advocate for unilateral commissioner power in any cases. But he has it. Now and like baffles me. Why he wouldn't use it in this case because no one wants to shawn watson at camp this shawn watson doesn't even want to be at camp team. I can't imagine wants him. Walking around with the specter of this investigation hanging on. I don't understand why the league would want him there. Their accusers clearly. Do not want him there. I it just doesn't make sense to me why you wouldn't act in this case and i understand. I'm not surprised. I think oftentimes in meena. Maybe you're not surprised either. But it doesn't mean you can't be upset but i think some people are surprised that the nfl investigation is not handled above board. Like i know they say it's independent but like biases exist and nfl has priorities and this is true of everyone. Frankly not just moneymaking enterprises like the nfl. Your priorities are ordered in. The top of their priority is not solving domestic violence. It's not getting the truth about shawn watson. the top of their priorities and it always will be is what's best for the business protecting the shield. They like to say it so like. I'm disappointed in the things that i read but i'm not surprised like i feel the same way about that but i do like companies in general we talk about all the bad things that these companies are doing and i. I'm not shot. Like it is our responsibility to hold them to account well especially dominique. If the number and again i hate to keep harping on the most basic aspect of this thing but twenty two right like at a certain point like part of the frustration that those women expressed jenny renta's which is so obvious when you see them. Articulated is when they watched the media when they watch people talked about it. It's incredibly frustrating and depressing. Because it's not. I mean look one or two should be enough. Let's be clear about that but when it's twenty two. There is a question of precedent this president being set in terms of how we discussed this thing and how the nfl processes this thing. This has the ability to set a standard that is ordering on dystopia and pablo. I just wanna add one more thing. Which is if you don't feel qualified to weigh in or do legal analysis. That's fine just say the number. Those are the facts of the story has been accused by twenty two women and debt that fair minimum that bar that tiny bit of information continues to be left out. And that is what is so disappointing is pablos beloved ryan fitzpatrick being lame for still complaining about the dolphins okay. He's not complaining all right he is merely being asked questions and answering them from a place that we all want him to become an from. Which is honesty emotional integrity and honesty. What he says of course is what he's always maintained and he just give more detail to it here. Which is that yes. This was his team people around him including chaim gaily by the way. A coach on the team all agree that this was his team. This was shocking to come in and take the job. And he's allowed to say. I felt terrible about it while also being a supportive great team mater in so doing. That's what he's saying to find on apollo you're buying matico strong him down ugly. I'm sorry it's fine all or too strong line. However like brian. Fitzpatrick was not brought into that situation as the quarterback of the future. It's like ryan. Patrick knew what the deal was when he signed up so like i understand he was playing well and you could argue the merits of the decision to pull them out or leave him in but citing chan gailey like come out daily. That's that's what you're talking. Chen galea's is the guy who who's decision making process. We're like oh don't worry about that. One of the best young coaches we have in the league. No his decision One of the best young. Gm's lee jang. His teammates annoy his teammates. Were all stuck in soling..

"All of the things that I managed to convince Jenny Renta's to do this week on the weak side podcast alongside me condor is the thing that she probably hates the most talking about the Jaguars for twenty five straight minutes. That's right is the special Jaguars addition. Yeah of the weakside podcast, I am noted Jaguars apologised connor or. Alongside. Jenny RENTA's has always were recording this on Monday after the Jaguars released former number four overall pick Leonard Fournette and I said, Jenny Scrap the program we are devoting this entire. Half hour to. The Trendy, perpetually the trendiest team in the NFL from two, thousand, thirteen to two, thousand, seventeen, the team that all of the insiders told us was going to be the super bowl champions. They kind of got close with sort of one of those classic one hit wonder Hollywood stories? Jenny. How excited are you to talk a little jags football here? Well, you know today is as good a day as any honor, right? Makes Sense. It's a little bit reminiscent of I went back and looked up in two thousand thirteen at the QB. We had a Jag Week. There was a logo and all that we will share on the QB instagram. It's actually a great logo. I can't say the same for the lineup of stories. I wrote a lineup of story or I wrote a story for that week about Tim Tebow, not abandoning his dream of becoming an NFL quarterback but yet the sport of rugby was courting him if you're wondering how this fits into Jag week well, there was evidently at that time a plane flying over the stadium during a game with a Tibo why not banner in Tow at the time of course, the Jaguars were Owen Five. This was October of two, thousand thirteen, and of course, they made their dramatic turnaround but connor lineup of stories this week. Really. Really a low light for the QB have to say there was spreading the wealth. Denver is an unprecedented twenty, eight point favorite against Jacksonville but smart money and NFL gambling history is on the underdog Jaguars. No. Really then there was it could be worse when it comes to the lowlights of the NFL's past history, it doesn't get much lower than the one, thousand, nine, hundred, seventy, six bucks on the wrong side of the last mega spread. These jags about what it's really like to be unmet outmatched..

"After you know they've never revealed scheme special packages or strategy as part of previously existing rules. I think most reporters have an understanding of where the line is and those are things you don't reveal but basic stuff about WHO's working with. WHO And you know guessing the depth chart and the you know I just feel like those are things that. Unnecessary and that stuff that would normally be on public display during this kind of year. So essential or during a regular kind of year. So you're essentially using these circumstances to restrict the media further and I think my fear Connor is that. Things don't revert to normal right. My fear would be that teams use whatever restrictive procedures are in place this year I. Hope that's not the case I hope everyone understands we're in a tough situation media's just trying to do their jobs obviously, teams want to be safe I think everybody respects that but I just hope this doesn't become something that ends up being a turn that like permanently marginalized media makes it more difficult for media who are just there to do their jobs. So dumb, I remember doing God how many versions of the fifty, th guest the fifty three man roster posts. Not Inherent in that is the depth chart because you're projecting the roster, you have to know how players rank in every position ridiculous bad job bad job by bad job by the packers job at packer CIO. Consensus today I think that's an easy one to get behind no doubt I hope self. Well, the good news is we made it through the show and been replaced by your daughter. So big round of applause for baby girl or here quietly eating her goldfish and watching word party instead of crashing the podcast but she was more the modem to do. But yeah I mean as we said, you know she's always welcome and has a future in store here on the pod it's just a matter of time but her. During me.

Yeah. On what you raise is such an important point that we don't have all of the answers on the long term impacts of covert and that's why it was so silly earlier. This offseason, the people discussing like, Hey, it's a competitive advantage of athletes. Get it. Now, they don't have to worry about getting in the fall when first of all, we don't even know how long the you would have immunity from getting the virus, and then secondly, we don't know the long term impacts on the body, and as you mentioned the research coming back as indicated that for some people, it can be severe and long lasting and we know impacts the circulatory. System has neurological impacts. Those are very serious beyond just a simple virus that you get over. So it was never a binary thing where you either have a, you know a fatal outcome or a mild case. There's a lot of outcomes in between and I think for college athletes especially who are eighteen to twenty two years old who are not getting paid who are not professional athletes making this decision who also have school to deal with there just are. A lot more considerations at play and I. Think once you had conferences saying we're stopping play because we believe that it's safe. Then it really put the pressure on the other conferences I think to say, well, you know we can't make the claim that it's safe. Other conferences are saying it's not

"Episode of the weakside podcast with Jenny Renta's conroy is a special is an understatement. Jenny I mean we are kicking everything up a notch. We are kicking up the intensity, the heat, the production we're we're going all out here because this week we have four each other some burning questions. Sorry I spoke to Syrian I. You know my timing was off there with the sound effects. How do you not love that I love it. This is how good our producer is our producer shelby. Watch this. burning. Questions. That's as close as you're gonNA. Come to feeling like a magician where you can just make something happened simply by saying you know isn't that amazing? I love it. We've been talking a lot. necessarily. So some football gentle topics, this has been a difficult summer I think for everybody you know inside and outside the sport and we want to with training camp. It's happening right I. Mean we we did not expect it to be on pace like this. Obviously, there's a ton of players who have opted out instill there may be more players opting out but as it stands right now, we are still on pace to have football with the giant and Asterix next to it, you look at what's happening with the NBA with Major, League Baseball. We don't really know what's going to happen but if that's the case I, think that we should dive in a little bit and we should ask ourselves some of the questions that we. Might have been asking off season if this if this podcast was was happening under under typical circumstances so Jenny, I got to for you and I know you have to for me. So I don't know are you excited for some burning questions? This is never going to get all. Maybe this'll become a weekly ashtec connor. I. Love a good bit. Love a good bit I. Don't Know What do you think? Your opener really got me fired up. Your head coach standing in front of his team. You're like matt, rule you now generating a lot of enthusiasm with his opening address to the team. So here we go excellent segue Jenny because my first. Burning Question. For you is you know. So we spent the whole off season. When we were talking about football, I think talking a lot about the NFC south in particular The saints at least in my opinion have the most complete roster and football The Tampa Bay buccaneers are have Tom Brady and rob Gronkowski and Shawn McCoy. They have old Kinda aging all star team which is very kind of attractive right now and fund the Falcons. Are always the falcons I think they're going to be competitive. They have a great head coach and a good quarterback and a good wide receiver. But the fact that like Matt Rule signed on to be head coach of the panthers that feels like a million years ago. Right? I mean I it's it's almost like that happened in nineteen ninety eight. This is a great topic connor because. You're right. It's not something that we've talked a lot about and I think part of the reason is because everything has been virtual because team offseason programs were not the way. They normally would where there would be a lot of conversation about what music's playing at practice and what the you know what the schedule is like, and you know what the locker rooms are like and. All those kinds of things were were lost. So I think four new coaches be have less of a sense of what things are actually going to look like under their watch. So I think it was natural that they kind of receded to the back burner especially as the headlines were, how will there be a season? What will the players Union and the League agree to etc etc.. Yes. So let's say there is a season. Let's say things start the way that they do I've been keeping up with you know. Some of the conference calls that they've been doing just out of interest I. think that people who know me know that I'm head coach obsessive. That's kind of the thing that if I had to pigeon hole myself into one niche of covering football, it's I love head coaching decision making hiring head coaches, firing of head coaches, head coach philosophy, all that kind of stuff. So keeping tabs on on Matt rule a little bit and just kinda how everything's been going but Jenny, I ask you. What would is sort of a baseline expectation and do you think that either Matt rules newness freshness is going to be an advantage or because of the historic times that ran almost like an unseen disadvantage like is this is this going to be good like some people are assuming or historically back? Well. I think every new head coach this year has a tougher road because you're trying to institute your new culture, your new system new everything across the board and there's less. Of An acclimation period I mean you can do zoom meetings all you want but guys aren't in the building you're not together. You might not get like that one on one time in the hallway if you pass somebody or somebody's popping into your office I, think it's a lot harder to manufacture meaningful interactions with your players So I I do think there`ll Be a distinct advantage I. mean how much that this advantaged gives me how much that translates to results on the field is hard because a lot of the head coaches maybe expectations are of low I mean I think that's especially true. For Rule in the panthers right I mean they're kind of industry building. They're they're starting a new era extreme roster turnover rights. You know the cornerstones that we've always associated with the panthers, Cam Newton leuke cly, or at least over the past several years Greg Olsen, they're all gone. So it's kind of a fresh start. So I do think the fact that expectations are low are a good thing because there's a little bit more time for them So am interested to see how their approach takes because this is the common question of projecting college coaches to the NFL and so a lot of Matt rules comments have reminded me of a little bit of the Jim Harbaugh enthusiasm unknown to mankind type of thing. Like the comment last week about they he wanted he was telling his team that eight is the new six for social distancing. So if six feet is the guideline for social distance, they were going to do it at eight feet to really. Go all in on that. It sounded a little bit like the one hundred and ten percent which I always hated as a young swimmer growing up because it was like I mean, what do you mean I'm trying my best anyway so Expectations are low. So I don't think there's going to be a lot of angst in in Carolina Connor. I think he has a really long contract. He is a long time to rebuild and I think people are just kind of saying, Hey, would this is the you know this is the start of new chapter and let's give it a little time to see how it works how. You made such a good point about just building that organic relationship with the players and here's something that I'm going to be fascinated to hear about when were and maybe this is a year from now because to be honest, we're not gonNA have these intimate conversations with players like we used to at the Walker a time where you can kinda pull them aside You know we've done our best this off season over the phone you know connecting with people but even then I mean things are Kinda different especially if you've met them before and you can't you can't. Get in front of them, but how coaches are bridging that divide digitally and you know so many guys will say that their relationship with their coach came down to a moment where maybe the coach sees them in the in the lunchroom was I, how's your your house your wife I know she just had a.

Like and my puzzle did arrive I mean it was the box was damaged, but the pieces are in there, so you know. I think you should give it a shot just for entertainment purposes and we can discuss it. Maybe it'll be an entire podcast episode I. Mean You Know It's? It's July Connor. We're scraping for topics, so your vanity mask of your mouth could really take an entire show. Thank God by the way for Franchise tag deadline. Because you know what else what else are we going to do here? We didn't miss anything I was good I. was you know in Typical weakside? PODCASTS tradition? I was extremely pessimistic that. We weren't going to get through the show without a megadeal landing within the thirty second mark of. Of of the end of the PODCAST, we'd have to re tape it, but you know good for us. We took a little risk and. It paid it off. Yeah, just like maybe a kirk cousins, maybe DAK Prescott so. Transition by the way all right Oracle. Yes, time Dak Prescott to the Patriots after Cam Newton's done okay. I've been I brought this up in jokey sense like two weeks ago, but I want really plant the flag here. Right I wanNA really really plant the flag I think that we get. At least maybe one possibly two years of Cam, Newton and then Bella. Check goes all in and get stack, and just keeps dynasty. Churning enjoys another wonderful subway sandwich and another five super bowl trophies so. I love it will make a note to our producer shelby to note to the July Sixteenth episode of Twenty Twenty one to mark for the future we can resurface cliff clip and everyone will brand connor even more genius than we already thinking. Mean that entirely sincerely so. All Right? My rent is consists I stole the news this morning or we'll recording on. Wednesday but Kenny Stills was arrested facing a felony charge for peacefully protesting Louisville and Briana Taylor's the people that killed Burana. Taylor are still not arrested and. Thought still agent really spoke up and. Laid out how wrong that is and I saw. Other agents supporting that and certainly other players and you know. Kenny stills has really been a unwavering strong voice though. Right alongside with capper neck, he's he's. Spoken thoughtfully and earnestly and has had. Just, really insightful comments that should have educated people earlier if they had chosen to listen and I hope that people choose to listen now. And that they continue to pay attention to the something like this right where he's you know. Peacefully protesting something that it's clearly wrong and is paying for it, so just wanted to make sure week mentioned Kenny stills, and his continued activism. And all of the things that he's pushing for in our country. Equality despite the cost might come to him, though doubt, no doubt and just you know I, mean like you said his commitment to everything I mean you could read into why he was. Let go in Miami. Initially, you know if there was some discomfort there with what he wanted to do, but going to Houston a place where the owner had actively donated for You know the president. who had you know demonized all these players? I mean just the fortitude. The Bat takes to stand your ground and keep your convictions. is incredible so great on Kenny there Can I. Make one mention of something because we have to end the show on a I'm stealing the one good thing from the week in review pod so tonight can ideal of one good thing. All, right.

"Everyone agreed on the four top tackles which those four were. They all went in the top eleven right by the time becton went to the jets. The four top tackles were gone but I think we all had a trouble kind of pegging. What order they would come off. And I don't think many expected the giant like the giants. We thought we'd take tackle. But I think a lot of us. Scott Indra Thomas Wrong. That he wasn't projected to be the first tackle and a lot of mock drafts. Yeah you Albert. Both ad worse first off the board. I had MCI BECTON FIRST OFF THE BOARD BUT INTERESTING. What was your you know who else really impacted this. All I mean obviously Jordan. Love was a big curveball. For everybody and for the three of us to the the packers. I mean that was. That was ridiculous. I mean we you and I both had the kid from Colorado Albert head Rieger. Who ended up going to the eagles earlier on but yeah nobody could Brian good accounts and Jon. Gruden just total while carts here. Yeah we all want with weapons for the packers which I think was a fair expectation. Not only did they take love a trading up for love. Of course the big stunner around one so that was a big zero for us as well. Yeah so as much as it pains me to say the winner this year with sixty three points almost a full doubling of my score at the top was Albert breer so I texted Albert because I greeted his first And I didn't tell him one but he did have a good draft. I would say that some of the more impressive ones there was Brown to the Panthers at seven in the night. Zia Simmons at eight Was a big one for him I gave him a sexually sixty three point five so I did give him like a half a point for something That was like an between decision there but chase on from the Jaguars Twenty Jackson to the dolphins at eighteen. And then Isaiah Wilson to the Titans. Twenty nine which was pretty good so I would say congratulations to Albert the two thousand twenty M. Qb mock draft champion. We'll have to get his drink of choice. What do you think Albert Lakes to drink and I was just going to say that? He probably doesn't WANNA bottle of rose able. We could just send it to him and maybe his wife would enjoy it. His wife is a nurse so she deserves the the Rosa wine more than any of us. That's a great idea instead of awarding Albert. Let's let's let's let's understand the times the people we should be thinking. Obviously thank you. Emily for all the hard work that you do there too so yes emily. A bottle of booze is on the way for you. Don't have to share it at all with your husband. You earned it all Albert did was you know they teach you to Ohio state to just guess and test and sometimes that comes up you know. And that's a pretty good hits in the mock. Give Him some credit but grudgingly. But you know next year. I think we're just really hoping to build on this year's lessons connor and just try to get better. I'm curious because I I just my problem. Is I just get into this mode where I think that too? Many things are going to change and this is something that really stuck out to me. I don't know if there's an anonymous scout twitter account that's out there in this person just kept banging at every single member of the media saying you guys are going to be so wrong this year. Nobody knows anything about any of these players. And you know. The media's the mock drafts are going to be worse than ever. I don't think that's true. I think it was almost the opposite where I feel like more people had a majority of the right people in the first round as a whole than we have in years past like. I think we knew the people where they were going to go or when they were going to go but not necessarily where they were going to goes as much. Yeah I think that's that's interesting connor. Because I felt really uncertain when I did my mock and maybe I tried to because of that maybe I tried to get tricky like I said. Okay well panthers you have been linked to Derrick Brown. A lot of rumors that they like him but when I did my mock Isaiah Simmons was there and then I got caught up in this whole you know what. He's the perfect fit for rule. I should've just gone with the obvious right. So yeah that's A. that's a good observation. Because we thought that you know there's just every year we try to mystify the scouting process and sometimes it is just what it is. I remember when I was I did my first mock drafts when I was working at the Star Ledger. And at the time you know there is the push for you know. We were a newspaper on unstable ground. And so that's kind of around the first time that everyone's started talking about page views and you need to start doing things that people click on more and so I was like okay. Well be the papers like mock draft person because people like mock drafts and you know so I dug in. I really did an earnest like twenty two year old or effort on this and tried very hard in the first draft was the Ryan Tannehill draft. And I remember that everybody had him going to Miami but I said what if he slips to the cardinals and I remember thinking that was gonna be the big back door in for me to establish myself amongst the mock draft hierarchy was to nail this pick to hit the one that nobody expected and then Long Story Short after the draft. I was reading. Peter King's m qb calm and Peter and obviously was you know someone that I looked up to a great deal and read a lot When I was younger and so I was the only one that had tannahill to the cardinals. The only one and there is a note in his column. That just said Tanna Hilda Dolphins as expected anybody who put him anywhere else simply trying too hard and then I remember like I remember thinking like well I got. I guess I was on the radar a little bit. I was on piers radar a little bit But definitely banged me on that one so well deserved and the point being. Just don't get too cute or and I did again this year. I'm not taking my own advice. Yeah I definitely got to cute. Maybe I was feeling good. After last year's Amok Connor. Little froggy little froggy never feel for what? I don't know what else you know. We gave the people what they wanted. This was a big You know this was sort of big seminal moment closing down the draft. What are you looking forward to now? I mean this is sort of were into the great wide. Open a little bit. We have the schedule released this week. But I don't know I mean it sort of feels like we're at the end right until we get further instruction a little bit. Yeah we're all kind of in limbo. What'S AHEAD I? It's just kind of strange thing. Connor that a year ago this time we were sitting in the studio and Albert was had gone on a mission to find Rosaiah at a wine shop somewhere near the office and we were all reviewing the mock draft and then I think we went on to go through each of the the odds for the team that that year right what. What did we do we? We did over unders for over on your right so all of those things feel kind of far away now if you had to guess right now I mean. We're recording us. Monday twelve thirtyish the first week of May what are you feeling right now? I mean we all these players that we just mocked in judged in her watching get drafted. When are they going to play and actually take the field? Yeah it's hard to make a prediction because I don't want to sound like I actually have inside on the subject but it's just hard for me to picture a season that begins on time as normal all of the discussion about what will happen. Seems to be centered on the availability of widespread testing and seems like there's still a lot of leaps to make not department Also seeing photos of places opening up around the United States when a lot of parts of the country. The outbreak is still getting worse. So I don't really know what the next few months hold connor and yes. It's hard to imagine that we'll have football on time but about you. I don't know I saw Albert tweeting a little bit today. That I think Someone had estimated that he had reported that two owners had estimated that they would lose about one hundred million dollars in gross revenue if they did a season without fans and that most owners would much rather start the season in November then to then to start it without fans and lose the money. So I think if you're following the money in our Mike Rosenberg also had a good call about well if the NFL thinks the season starting time. Wise Roger Goodell furloughing himself. Basically you know so. Follow the money a little bit there and I don't know maybe we have a little fun. Thanksgiving start to the season. How about that? Yeah that could be interesting. A little different And I think we're all kind of embracing things as they come and not worried about. What is normal anymore right so like a year ago. The idea that the season would be shortened at all and there would be horrifying people and now I think people would just excited to have football in sub capacity whatsoever. Yeah what's one one good Uplifting pandemic tale from the weekend. What's what's something good that happened? This this past weekend. I actually have one connor. I went free Sunday evening. Walk in the park with a mask on keeping my distance rights. I do a little a little loop that goes on some of the back paths in the park that are less crowded so coming through this shortcut area kind of by the North Woods in Central Park. I hear music so at I heard frozen. Let it go women. I heard New York New York which I've heard probably thousands of times in the last couple of weeks. I mean if you cover baseball game at Yankee Stadium you know that the play at the end of every game. So if you're a baseball reporter I can imagine that you are tired of tune but it took a nightly thing in New York. When when there's the the cheers for healthcare workers usually someone plays it but I'm rounding this and I'm like where's this music coming from? It's not seven PM. No one's doing the the cheers. Yadda was around six and there was a new. Nypd truck parked on the loop in Central Park and it was playing music and there was A family with a kid that was kind of near it and the child was dancing and they were just playing different tunes. So after New York after Sinatra's song they played footloose and then they played some Bon Jovi and they went through different tunes. Was like a social distancing concert. There was a concert in the era of Corona thought. It was pretty creative very cool. That's awesome how about you. Connor big weekend here. I I live in a house that was built in the fifties and so The all the rage thing in the fifties was these things called Cap gutters right your your rain gutters have lids on them so that no debris can theoretically get in. They didn't know at the time that of course debris is going to get in copious amounts and they fastened with these old fashioned like flathead screws. And so I was super grateful for like be trying to figure out like a puzzle basically all day you know what I mean. It was like it took like four hours and I ended up getting out Apparently family of squirrels has been living there for the last five decades. So we had to clear out all of their belongings and But yeah so I was grateful for the opportunity to you know for like four hours. Just up they're not thinking about You know anything except for Squirrel. Pooping my gutter. So never did. I think that I would say that sentence but I was very grateful for For a good good old fashioned like puzzle in a distraction. And because it's it's hard to get puzzles these days. They're all back ordered exactly. That was my next point. Which was Jenny Got Me into the adult coloring craze Which is another thing that I went onto Amazon and everything is backward adult coloring books everything. The colored pencil sets the books but very excited That Azam saying this. My Pencil set arrives tomorrow Which is going to be big and then my scenes of the woods. Coloring book will come this weekend. Which is going to be big So just a lot to look forward to you. Know that sounds great well next week and our first episode of the weakside side podcast. We can discuss the adult coloring book. I think it sounds like a great choice. You said would would scenes scenes of the woods senior talk crates. I I have a New York themed one. Everything's everything's New York these days but The woods sounds very serene and peaceful connor. Yeah you know. We do what we can. But Anyway Congratulations Jenny. First RUNNER UP DR V.

"Are you in the heart of Manhattan Upper West Side? Okay Jenny RENTA's in the upper west side of Manhattan and You know we're doing football podcast and I think that today while we promise you a sixty five percent brady free episode Last week at the beginning of last week he does continue to make Quite a bit of news the day that we're recording this. He sat down for a lengthy. Chat with Radio Impresario Howard. Stern and I guess there was some relevant Tori re revelatory nuggets in there About how he kind of knew since the beginning of the season that he wasn't coming back to the Patriots but I don't know I mean we're going to talk about it because it's something that everybody is talking about but I have. I'm suffering from Brady fatigue along with a lot of other fatigues. I think during this time but I don't know what was your takeaway from the big Tom. Brady sit down with Howard. Stern was a very lengthy interview. I didn't listen to every minute of it. I listened to a few different parts of it. I did think there were some things that we don't normally hear Brady talk about. He talked about his personal life. A little bit He talked about how his friendship with trump began. That section made me a little bit uncomfortable I would say my main takeaway. Was that a lot of it. Made me uncomfortable. There was. I thought some offensive language from stern which okay I know that's par for the course but like sexist undertones. Some of Brady's comments were frustrating in terms of saying you know he didn't want to he didn't want to get into the political arena. But you know he did have a trump hat and his locker so he has kind of dived into the political arena. It felt like having it both ways and the one comment that really stood out to me was when he said he doesn't see race. Which I feel like is a pretty uninformed take to have in your forties in the year twenty twenty right you know what's a pretty privileged take to have the ability to not see race right. I mean like you have to be pretty privileged to say I. It doesn't affect me in that way right so felt like that was a little bit tone deaf. So I don't know. Conor just was some frustrating parts was my takeaway. Yeah I mean. I don't know I've never like I. I've been interested in Brady as a player. I think you know. Obviously he's one of the greatest players in NFL history and his relationship with Belle. Check has been fascinating to me but I think when you start peeling back the layers of the onion here. There's just not a whole lot there for me. Personally I don't know I mean Wh over some of the questions about how he tried pot in Highschool Okay. You know or that. He was hit so hard during a game. That one of his organs below the belt swelled to the size of a grapefruit or something. Okay you know I I to me that I was able to pass a lot of this on without much of a second thought. I guess it was interesting to me that he said that a letter from his wife saying that she was not happy with their marriage was the reason why he started skipping. Ota's which is a difficult thing to put on. One person in your outs. I think but I don't know I to me. It was just. We've we've reached peak. Brady you know this is. This is a like what happens to me after the penultimate episode of the Bachelor a lot like we know what we're going we know what happens and I can barely muster the energy to listen or watch the next episode right. It's just like okay. I get it. He was aggrieved in New England. It was time to move on. He's happy but he's unhappy in whatever he's here now you know yeah. There were some droplets of context that you reference right. There was a lot of speculation why he wasn't in the offseason programs and was that a signal of the rift and it turns out you know his his wife had written a letter saying he wasn't as much of a partner in the marriage. She needed. So you know that that's A. It's a difficult thing to talk about publicly so I thought that was. That was interesting but yeah you know. I don't know who's interesting. He sat for that long of an interview. I guess everyone has a little bit of cabin fever. So maybe maybe now is the time connor but lots of other topics to talk about as well. Yeah I will say my final point in that is that I'm fascinated that this was You know he allowed this to come out in a semi journalistic setting right that this was not controlled by Brady Inc and produced in a documentary. That is supposed to make him look a certain way which we have seen East kind of had a very carefully cultivated image. Despite the fact that he's told Howard stern that he doesn't care about his image and his legacy. But you know so I guess you give them credit for that. We see very few athletes submitting to A long form sort of prodding interview in that way so I guess you give them credit for being honest there but you know it's just for me. We got a full slate Jenny. It's it's it's April. It's in the middle of unprecedented times. But there's put their some football to talk about. We got some good stuff on TAP. And you know what? We had a lot of really nice messages from listeners. Come in I feel like people were actually listening to the show. I heard from someone in Australia. Someone in Japan people across the United States. I don't want to oversell the number of people that reached out but each of that. It felt like a lot because each message was very meaningful. O'connor yeah I think that's what I like the most about the whatever. It is the little community that we're building here is that we hear from a lot of you so regularly. So thank you guys I mean and it. It really does mean a lot. I think any time that you can reach out to somebody and you know we're not you know we're we're okay you know You know check on your loved ones. Certainly but it's just you know every little message goes a long way for everybody and that includes us you know. It's just something to say that thanks. We read them and and they're very They're very meaningful so absolutely all right. Let's let's get into the News Jenny. This is something that we foreshadowed. I think couple of weeks ago on the weak side podcast. But what are we offer Topic Number One here Washington head coach Ron Rivera said this week. That backup Kyle. Allen has a leg up on rookie dwayne Haskins as they head into an inevitably shortened camp. A few weeks back. We talked about the fishing. This or scrutinous. Nice Nice of this situation and with rumors that Washington may still be interested in a quarterback at number two. What does the future hold for the two thousand nine hundred and first round out of Ohio State Connor? I WANNA credit you. You have been on top of this saying that you don't you? Don't quite buy that. They're the things. Are you know moving ahead with Haskins? I think that this is either one of three things one is that Ron Rivera sign kyle. And he's GonNa Start. Kyle Alan. He's known that all along To is that he's challenging Dwayne Haskins. He's trying to get him motivated. And this is the way that he's doing it or three that they are either wanting teams to trade up to them at number two or are very much. Considering taking a quarterback at number two in Rivera is setting the stage for that as well. I'm not sure how that order works exactly but I do think there's there's something here. Something kind of smells a little bit. Yeah I thought there were two takeaways from Rivera's comment one is. It added a little bit of context to the fact. They didn't sign cam. Newton part of the reason. He said they signed. Alan was it was someone that if they had two weeks ago they put him in play and he obviously knows the playbook the offensive coordinator Scott Turner's we came to Washington from Carolina. So there's clearly a familiarity there with the system so with Cam Newton. If you had signed him you wouldn't have that option for sure you're he's still back from season ending foot surgery. You do not know that he would necessarily be ready to pop in if you had a very short preparation period so that made a little bit more sense but yeah the second thing is it. Didn't sound like somebody that was very convinced with Haskins. Rivera was first time head coach in Carolina in two thousand eleven during the lockout and he said what they did was once they knew cameras going to be the guy which he was the number one overall pick. They made sure that he just got extra wraps that everything was skewed so that he got the most preparation in the most potential practice to ready him for starting day one so the fact that his response with Haskins is not that but rather hey and I looked back over the exchange was after he said some of these things about Allen someone followed up and said so you would probably start Kyle Allen if it came into a situation like that which was referencing the shorten camp and Rivera replied. If that was the situation Kyle would have a leg up on the situation most certainly so. It seems like they're preparing to start. Alan and I agree that opens the door. That would they take a quarterback? You know because if he's not sold on. Haskins probably doesn't think Alan's a long-term answer he just thinks he would be more available for the team to go week one. It's so fascinating B- The tight rope that these coaches walk and I thought that more teams would take a better page out of the cardinals book last year when they just completely torpedoed. Josh Rosen value over the course of a few weeks heading into the heading into the draft if Washington is interested in taking quarterback. I don't think that they're doing a good job of bolstering haskins value at all. Either I mean this could be one of those things were again. You're left with pennies on the dollar and not saying that I don't know what a return on. Haskins would look like anyway right. I mean he slipped in a draft where I don't know. I think that there is certainly room for him to be one of the top. Two or three quarterbacks if if he was a more enticing prospect but. I don't know I think that I don't necessarily think that that's what they're going to do. But it seems like at least. Rivera has not been sold on Haskins. He's talked more about his work ethic and what he sees anecdotally but not like. Hey you know you know how some coaches will say immediately you know. I saw the film on this guy and it blew me away. I mean that's one of those things that you can say in a position of a new head. Coach Ron Rivera hasn't said anything like that. The question of Haskins Valley was also an interesting one because this has been such an over saturated quarterback market and there are still people out there lingering right Newton among them and obviously he's got the injuries situation but This isn't a year where you probably could get a big return. If you wanted to trade former first round draft quarterback that you don't plan to start the value would probably be even lower than it was for Rosen just because there are fewer teams with the need. Yeah and it's crazy. I mean you know we they. Everyone says all the time that we can invest in these guys. We can build a scheme around these guys to me. It's still unbelievable that this is happening In in this date and time in NFL history but here we are again. Where I mean got imagine. The worst case scenario there were Haskins goes to. I don't know Jon. Gruden will probably want him. He loves first round. Quarterbacks to the raiders for a fifth round. Pick or something like that I mean..

"Joining us now as NFL senior writer for sports illustrated. Jenny RENTA's Jenny. Thanks so much for joining us. Yeah thanks for having me today thank you. Let's talk straight into it the NFL just wrapped up a busy free agency period. And if he didn't know better you think it was a normal time for football. What do you make of the NFL? Proceedings and business as usual fashion for the time being. I was against it and I know a lot of people on teams were also against it. There were a couple of different reasons. Felt a little tone deaf and the country was going through a national crisis. Still is going there. National Crisis think that resources were best used in other ways right. A lot of families at home have kids who are home from school in need extra support in those areas. People have older relatives. They're worried about taking care of And then there were some practical measures in terms of players. Usually when you sign a free agent deal you get a physical before it's approved and teams found some work arounds where players could go to local doctors but later this week the NFL Physicians Society Said Team Physicians. Will it would not be doing anymore. Physicals for any. Nfl related business believing that those resources in the medical system should be left for people addressing the corona virus pandemic and. I thought that was a pretty strong statement now. Of course it doesn't mean there will not be any physicals. I mean people can go to other doctors but NFL team physician said they would not be conducting physicals because they felt it was inappropriate. Timing so I think for a lot of those different reasons. I didn't think it made sense to go forward. You know. There're teams some teams. Shut DOWN THEIR FACILITIES. Other teams employees felt like they had to go into work because there was work to do so free agency did create a reason for people to congregate no matter how small group that might have been but people were still leaving their houses and going in and you know handling anything from signings to contracts it just created additional movement additional resources devoted to something that was neither essential nor urgent and a time in our country when really all of our resources should be funneled to the things that are essential and urgent because we don't even have the capacity to handle that adequately. Yeah I mean so for those who may even be just a casual. Nfl Fan. Most of US know that this the League plays pretty much to the beat of its own drum. How long do you think the League can go on before it has to adjust the logistics of the pandemic? They earn a different situation. Obviously than a lot of other major sports leagues in America. Not this is not their season. Their season wasn't about to start. It wasn't already underway. It's the off season but they have had to make. Some adjustments in terms of offseason programs are suspended indefinitely. I think there is a lot of skepticism that any part of the offseason program will go as plan. You know normally teams report to the facilities in April teams with new head. Coaches would go a little bit earlier. Maybe the start of April other teams that go mid April and those offseason programs would continue through June. And I think now that we're seeing events like the Olympics be postponed and the Olympics is taking place in late July early August so I think the idea that any of the offseason in program would go as planned doesn't seem like it's necessarily going to go that way at this point in time. Obviously things are changing and you. Kinda have to take it week by week but I do think that there is a concern to of this trickling into training camp and even a consideration of games be affected in September. The reality is even looking back three or four days. Things seem unrecognizable right. So projecting too far ahead feels kind of makes your mind span and so you can't really know the possibilities but I don't think it's crazy to think that training camp could be affected and potentially the season so obviously we've talked a lot about from an ethical standpoint. Just you know how much we agreed on. How the League handled is at the very beginning. But we're at the point in the pandemic where people might be looking for something other than the virus to focus their attention. Do you think this might have actually played favorably for the NFL at least from a marketing perspective and Free Agency perspective? In spite of the risks. I imagine that was one of the considerations right in that people were home working from home you know how could watch their wall to wall coverage on television. The ratings would you would expect to be high. I think that was. It's it's hard to say. That wouldn't have been a factor in the NFL's decision making. And I do think there was a lot of interest it spurred a lot of conversation and it seemed like people were the general audience was pretty into it. I still don't think that justifies decision to move forward and I think for instance like the NFL's physicians society coming out with their this week saying they were ceasing. Physical I think was a reflection of that. Basically saying hey. This wasn't a great idea and move forward and we're putting our foot down as far as we can to say we don't believe in carrying on with business as usual so the NFL obviously is lift by supported by marketed by its main core. Which is the star. Plays what a players doing during this pandemic how they reacted to it. Both in regards to as you mentioned in a training and priest off season practice and getting ready to help their communities have been reacting in different ways. Yeah there were a lot of donations. One of the big issues of course now is access to food for people who need support for that. You know food banks and kids who rely on breakfast and lunch at schools trying to fill those gaps for families that are especially stressed right now whether it's because of loss of incomer loss of the ability to send the children to school so a lot of players have donated funds to provide meals for their local areas. You see Russel Wilson Baker Mayfield. Jd wadden his wife professional soccer player. Kalia Ohi Jared Goff into what worth Obviously missing some. It's a pretty long list. And a lot of them donated six figures to try to fill in some of those gaps of need in their communities. Certainly we saw teams in a team owners. Try to provide as well in terms of working out you know. It's it's an interesting time of year because players are pretty much on their own right now anyway so they would normally come back and start their conditioning programs in April as we referenced before I think you know. Probably if you're a star player WHO's higher salaried. You probably have a pretty good home. Set up in your gym. Maybe a gym in your house. If you're a lower bottom of the roster guy you probably have less access to resources to work out you know with many gyms of course across the country closed and I think players are sort of left to do what they can at home. One thing that I think will be interesting to keep an eye on is whenever we see. Nfl activities resume as normal. Is the injury rate that came up during the lockout twin players in the off season was cancelled and players stayed away from team facilities until late July when the new? Cba was reached? Obviously this is a more extreme form of that because they can't even go to their home gyms and workout with our home trainers so You know are they are players working out to the same level that they normally would do. They have the same guidance that they normally would to prevent injuries. A lot of them work specialists. That help make sure that their body movements are in tune and they do everything they can to prevent injuries. So I do think that's an additional thing to keep an eye on moving forward so johnny something that I asked. My guests are aside from analyzing what happens now on what's happened reasonably. It's also about predicting the future. What does editions do you think will? Nfl fans expect will be announced in the next coming weeks or even months the big thing on the calendar right now is the draft in late April the NFL has already said that it won't have the public events in Vegas but it's still plans to do the player selection as planned. I think that will be an interesting one to keep an eye on. Will it be possible to to to proceed with that? Will teams feel comfortable without having taken the team visits without you know? Players are not allowed to travel to team facilities there will be no combine medical recheck. Normally players who were injured at the combine would go back for a recheck between the combine in the draft that comes into play with a player or player like Alabama quarterback to talk of a lawyer right because he has a a serious injury. That teams would wanna get an eye on so you know do their own re-evaluation before they would use a high pick on him so our team's going to be comfortable moving forward with that and also as a pandemic continues to unfold and like I said earlier. We don't really know what's next. We don't know what's going that. This be the status of things in America in late April and while the NFL move forward as if nothing was different for free agency. Would that be possible in late? May would there be with circumstances. Be So dire that there'd be even more pressure on them to not move forward with the draft so I think that's the next major decision point and then also how our training camp in the season affected a little further down the line. Sports illustrated senior writer. Jenny Renta's you can read her work and NFL. Emma qb sports illustrated Jenny. Thank you so much. Thanks for having me more than anything.

"Plays, right? Replay is to get it. Right. And ultimately people compromise. I think on long held views because they want to get the system. Right. They want to get to play. Right. This is after hours with Amy Lawrence. They Commissioner Roger Goodell in he is on board. And he says that he really encouraged the owners to make this change to vote for this proposal to include pass interference under instant replay the current system. They're not changing the system, they're just adding PI both calls and non calls. But he said that he encouraged them in a private meeting on Tuesday morning to to take this step because they wanted to get it. Right. And they felt like this was the the way to go for the NFL. And yes, it has a lot to do with the NFC championship game. We know from various NFL sources an insider's though. Those at the highest levels of the league that that moment cafe major Paul and they felt like after an incredible season and not just that. But a phenomenal playoff run to that point. That it really overshadowed all the good and all the positive steps they take into to see their ratings. Go up again. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS. Sports radio are told free line is eight five five two one two four two two seven. Warren is listening in Georgia. Welcome to after hours. How you doing? We love you. So thank you. I think it's about time that they that they brought it into it. Because that call the referee was actually looking like, you should have been looking it was it was a player safety helmet-to-helmet. He should have been thrown. Anyway. Yeah. It was a total blown call. Gotcha on every level. But I really want to urge the owners to get all time referees because I think we have full time referees. We would we would avoid caused like some of them are fulltime. And it doesn't matter. I don't I don't know. If you understand the the work in the effort that they put into the training and the review and the video, but we spoke to jeans territory at the beginning of last year. We're talking about thirty something hours per week. So they're pretty close to full time. They do everything that they that they need to do. And then some so I'm not I'm not on board with the officials suck. Because again, they grade out at roughly ninety five percent. They do a really good job the best in the world at what they do. So making them full time. Maybe you add ten more hours a week to their preparation, but most of them are already in that thirty to thirty five hour a week category that they devote to this. Fan. I was blown away. But as a fan of football because I watch every level of football from part of middle school high school NFL, af I couldn't believe that he missed that call now nobody could, but you know, Warren that the majority of pass interference calls are not that cut and dried it was an egregious mistake. It was awful. And it was as we talk about a black Mark for the league. But let's be honest. The majority of them are a lot more in the gray area. The majority of them you ask ten people and five will say one thing and five will say another thing right because the one against Alba Kamera with the Steelers. I was like that was not happening the fingers, and I'm a saints fan. I did not agree with that call even though it went in favor of my team. I was like that is that is not good football right there. Now, we never agree on anything. That's the whole point. That's why this is opening up a camera worms because we all have not all of us. Many of us had this idea that it's going to be cut and dried as the NFC championship. But it's not the majority of them. You. Could say defensive offense have no call. Yes. Call. I mean, it could be a different call. There's so many ways that we can argue about calls pass interference is a different animal. And I agree that there are a lot of them way too, many of them. But gosh, I don't know how you even gonna get a replay team to agree on what they saw there. Sometimes it's not as simple as watching a video. It doesn't tell you the story. It's about how you interpret what you see Warren. Thank you so much for the phone call. We're gonna move to Gary in Sacramento. Welcome to after hours CBS sports radio. Chamie show every night. Mentioned the next day. Do as you. You're wonderful to listen to. I've been listening to you since you started. It's a great great show. Thank you, sir. Now house and all that is out. My idea would be for them to get a group of maybe twenty referees right now and start training for the whole entire year to become an eye on the sky by the beginning of next year season, and then just train them all year, and then they would have enough trained referees to do that. And then anything could introduce that Nazi. Yeah. That is the concern of the NFL with the sky judge. They didn't even vote on it. Because despite the fact the coach is desperately want it because they're worried about not having enough people to put it every game site enough qualified officials qualified replay assistance to put it every game site. And you only have so much time the train. So there is a possibility that could be looked at again. But for now, I'd rather it not be implemented. If it's going to be done shoddily. Correct. That's why I said take a whole year just to do that trained properly. Yeah. We'll be properly. Try I think they're going to watch this past interference implementation carefully. This transition to see whether or not they want to open up a replay to more judgment calls. We this is going to be critical. This is kind of the the test run. And if it works, and if it doesn't extend games, and it's not too controversial. Then they'll maybe keep it may be expanded. But they do things very slowly in the NFL. Let's be honest. Thank you very much for the nice great show. You put on every night. I really enjoy it. Thanks, gary. Good to have you onboard in Sacramento. Nice to talk to you eight five five two one two four seven. You wanted to be a favorite guys. I know we had talked about replaying part of John MacLean one. Does this grab the answer to the question? I asked him about Sean, Sean Payton, if this is not Sean Payton how much clout then does this proposal have. But the fact that it's one of the most established and credible coaches in the NFL, I asked him that question, and that to me is huge. So there was a report. Thank you. I'll get you one second. There's a report out there that and I think it was Jenny Renta's sl that she was watching as the various coaches were finding out about this pass interference change. And she said Mike Tomlin walked up to Sean Payton and patted him on the behind like they just want a game or had a big play. Touchdown. So no doubt the fact that you had the cloud of some of the biggest name coaches in the league had an impact. But I'm wondering if this is say me pick one Adam gates, and the eyes of Adam gays does this proposal have as much momentum. As it did was Sean Payton. If this is a different coach, maybe a coach he's only been the league. A couple of years that doesn't have the cloud the credibility, the long tenure of Sean Payton, do you think this still passes John? Well, that is a great question. Amy. Nobody knows that. Sure. Jason Garrett Jason's been around. I think going into his ninth year Payton's been saints since two thousand six I think maybe if it happened at a different round, it wouldn't have been as big a deal with the fact that it was the championship game and possibly kept the saints from going to the Super Bowl made it bigger Sean Payton on their competition committee yesterday competition committee was four four and then they got into change their mind, and where it was unanimous, but the older still had to vote. And and I'm sure that the that the top this committee, and a coaches gentleman's everybody was it. It's good for the game is not gonna make the game longer the challenges. Don't change. It's just we have two more things that could be review. John mclean. A great conversation with him from the owners meetings. He joined us from Phoenix. The first hour of the show. He had some really I think helpful insight about why this went through why the about face his reaction to it. I would encourage you to get the podcast after hours, Amy Lawrence dot com. And while I'm talking about it, the podcast is is we understand there's some technical difficulties with it when you open up the link again after hours, Amy Lawrence dot com. It looks like there aren't any podcast past March twentieth. Which would have been last week if you actually open up the podcast link you'll get the current show. It's just that. It's it's marked wrong. And we're not really sure why. But the length that we put on Twitter and Facebook, ignore what it says if you actually open up the links, you will have access to the current show on Facebook. Tommy says. Yes. I'm wondering why my Cincinnati Bengals were the only team to vote against it. That's a good question. I don't know Mike Brown. The Cincinnati Bengals was the only owner to say when it came to expanding instant replay to include pass interference Susan wants to know how much time will these additional challenges. Add to the game football games are long enough. Just to clarify. It's something that the NFL is really sticky about is not expanding games and making them stretch on pass three hours. Unless of course, you're talking overtime or something that's taking place on the field. So this was a major concern for them. And why they're expanding the replay. In a limited a limited basis right now. But it's not challenges just want you to know, it's not challenges this is actual replay. So you remember I proposed allowing the coaches to have extra challenges maybe one per game. And also allowing them to throw those challenge flags late in the game. So inside of the final two minutes in overtime. But Sean Payton said one reason that they didn't do that as. Because they don't want coaches throwing a challenge when there's a long bomb downfield and no time left on the clock. I hail Mary essentially, they don't they. Meaning the owners and the NFL don't want it to turn into a thing where you hail Mary it. And then you throw a flag thinking that you might be able to sneak pass interference call where there wasn't a flag thrown. So that's kind of the idea is that it's not challenges. This is not a situation where coaches are in the heat of the moment, and they're looking for some desperate way to affect the outcome of the game. So lots of comments hundreds of them already we've gotten from you in the last several hours, and we'll continue to talk about this. Thanks for weighing in on Facebook after hours with Amy Lawrence. And also we have a poll up on Twitter, and you're responding there to a law radio before we we dump out here at the end of our hump show. I have to pass this along it may come back for a face palm Friday. Did you guys hear that cliff Kingsbury is actually implementing? Cell phone breaks in the middle of team meetings.

So long has an off-season chills out in, you know, Los Angeles takes a deep breath in a good mood. But the season in an injury in a losing streak Westbrook. My friends is a sprinter and the NBA season is a marathon. And over time he wears out teammates. He wears out his coach he wears out the staff he wears out the media he wears out himself at some point. All you Westbrook fans, you'll have to acknowledge, you know, facts and stuff it's happening. Like it has the last two years. He's unraveling at the end of the season for the record. I totally supported him in Utah. That fan was a jerk. Got thrown out should've been a couple of days later. He's doing a near headbutts with Klay Thompson gets him suspended for a game at home against a bad team, Miami they lost and dropped to eighth for their next ten.

They're all stupid, but we do them because from time to time. I just like to see the reaction and invest for last. We'll give it to you. There's a quote there and Mike the staff this morning brought it up, and I'm like, no, I think he loves Randall Cobb.

But I haven't picked the champion nor have I put it in the final score tiebreaker. So I'm not done waiting to the last minute. I don't like my final four. But it is what it is. And so if you haven't joined the after hours bracket challenge, you still have a few hours to go find it on our show Twitter after our CBS, it's pinned to the top of that page and also on our Facebook page after hours with Amy Lawrence, and we re posted it on Facebook. So that you would have the opportunity to see it again swimming on your information superhighway before we get to basketball as some of you are listening as we hit the top of the hour, and we were sort of giving you the numbers were the lady, I'm bell contract. Versus the Todd Gurley contract. Girlies deal that he signed in the summer of two thousand eighteen was a four year sixty million dollar contract. It includes forty five million dollars in guaranteed money and a signing bonus of twenty million so total guaranteed money sixty five million dollars. That's why there were some in the business world some in the football business world who thought that was outrageous. A lot of money for running back though. He's extremely versatile. When you compare it to Latium bells deal, and this is what our caller was attempting to say. Bell has twenty five million dollars in guaranteed money in his contract with the jets plus at eight billion dollar signing bonus. Okay. So that's where the number thirty three came from. But that's roughly half of Todd Gurley guaranteed money. So he did not get the contract. He wanted regardless of what he tells you he did not get the contract that he wanted. He wanted quarterback money and in lieu of that Todd Gurley money. And I'm going to continue to balk at the idea that he could have one or the other. He had the fourteen and a half million. He could have had a contract similar to the one. He signed with the jets after taking the fourteen and a half million into the franchise tag with the Steelers. And you know, what that would have put him a lot closer to Todd girl. It's after hours with Amy Lawrence on CBS sports radio. The reason we're talking about lady on bell is because he did an extensive interview with Jenny Renta's of sl. And it's a video that you can see on dot com are all over the internet. And there are some pretty. There are some pretty telling responses from him as she asked him about. His relationship with the New York Jets. Why he signed there? I really don't understand his answer about the holdout and how it got to the point where he was going to skip the entire season. It doesn't make much sense to me. But he also took aim at Ben Rothlisberger. Now, he wasn't quite as pointed as Antonio Brown, but he did take his parting shots. He didn't say it was all Benz fault. But he did say that there were issues there. And that Ben was part of the reason why he wanted to leave not the whole reason. But part of the reason. So we'll let you hear lady on bell coming up in fifteen minutes. So you can join the conversation as well. We're inside the rocket mortgage by Quicken Loans studio rocket mortgage is with you every step of the way to provide a seamless mortgage experience. We had some tension in the NBA last night.

"jenny renta" Discussed on The MMQB: 10 Things
"We had some technical difficulties with with the PB podcast with our Br. And Jenny Renta's and Connor or so they were supposed to be out on Wednesday. If you you know, you probably know that you're looking for it did not come out. They're going to rerecord that is set to come out on Friday. You're listening to the show right now. So this is already out, and if you're looking for the gambling show, and then your someone who I don't know just doesn't really grasp the whole time space thing it's already out. It's backing your it came out Wednesday. Super Bowl props is fun show. I like Super Bowl prop pets our listeners with think I'd hate him. I like him. Yeah. Have you looked in on this here? No, no. Do you like the wacky props or do you like the, you know, it's like, you know, Tom Brady under over two hundred eighty three yards passing? I like to I like the wacky ones. Okay. On the show. I don't want to spoil the the gamut podcast and listen to it. But Jimmy Trina when appropriate last year four plus four hundred so four to one that a extra point would. Hit the upright. I know people who argue that that should be worth four points. If I said that on the show before I don't think so I've never heard that. It's it's harder to hit the upright than to not hit the upright. Whether you're making or missing it. So their argument is it should be worth for. I think that's nuts. But that's we're in we've waited into the prop at territory now. So this made it onto the show. What if what if you had a what if you had a third upright in the exact middle of the island? Yeah. That is interesting. I guess it just sorta takes the risk away. Because if you're trying to hit the upright like you're going with a four point kick from like eighteen yards out, and I would never spouse making kickers more valuable because the reality is a almost every field goal. Looks the same. We see how the ball travels differently. But we don't go out with beautiful for look at this plant leg. It's not like watching Vince Carter go up for a dunk. And this time went to three sixty next time. It's a win middle. So not like Odell Beckham catching one. On hand and all these different ways. Kicking looked kicking his so mechanical it's inherently boring. The results are exciting. But the action is boring, which is why I think every rural they make almost every rule needs to be to minimize the impact of kickers because there's no entertainment value there. I agree with that for the most part I and I like kickers, but the whole..
