All right, Danny high Fitz is here in Craig world Beck is here from the ringer fantasy show, which is called the ringer draft show. It's got like two identities. Yeah, moonlights is a draft show. We're gonna play a game. We're trying to do this in 20 minutes or less. Let's see if we can pull it off. We're gonna do a game. All the running backs receivers and tight ends. What we think their value is as assets. So this is like a cousin of a trade barrier game. The reason we're doing this is because debo Samuel is available. And producer Steve Surrey was like, where does he rank? How important is it that deebo Samuel is available? So let's start with deebo and then we'll play the game. How important is debo Samuel to you? Is he worth two first round picks? The price, the price for tyrique, the price for devonta Adams, it's like floating between like a first and a second. Other guys like Jamal Adams is worth two first rounders. Does he wear two first rounders to you? I think the tricky thing is that it's so hard to divorce him from Shanahan and the forty-niners in my mind. I feel like to the forty-niners, yes, kind of, because we just watched the playoffs and debo was, he made me feel like I was watching the past the football in the future at the same moment. I feel like it's like Jim Thorpe or something. Someone playing every position at once, but also really I think debo, it reminded me actually of like Joel embiid, the 7 footer who's knocking down three pointers at the end of the game. It's like, how do you guard him? Who do you put on him? Doesn't matter what you do you're wrong. That's what deebo is, where you treat them like a running back, will they shift them out to receive? You treat them like a receiver, shift them in. He changes everything for defense. I just don't know if he's going to stay on the field. That's my concern. It's mine as well. What do you think, Craig? Yeah, I think there's some Shanahan cockiness to this where he's like, I can do this with anybody. So I don't need to pay you $25 million a year depot. I can draft treylon Burks and do it again.

And he explains, Of course, the thing is they've never lived anyplace other than Afghanistan and their entire families are there. So you know, get it out of your heads that this is that we're leaving Pat Tillman behind that. Jim Thorpe is desperately trying to climb onto an airplane. This is part of the scam of American citizenship. Um, And it is the Republican the Republican Party's white savior complex that oh, we must. We must save the rest of the world. Probably do that by bringing them here. Weird lead. Democrats are going along with them, although they think there's no greater hell on Earth and the United States of America, um, because they know how how the immigrants will vote. So maybe if representative McCaul and former representative Mark Meadows, um look up and notice we're living through a massive crime surge that businesses are going out of business, right and left and people suffering mental health and And dying of cancer in these in these red states, where all economic activity has been shut down for no reason. Uh, homeless control the streets. Criminals are being, um well, nothing's happening to criminals. Nothing at all. They're they're the police go to the trouble to arrest them, and they're immediately released. Thanks to these various George Soros DA's, which obviously, the Democrats are going to do nothing about, I would think the Republicans might want to mention crime, homelessness and our wide open border with another, with millions more democratic voters pouring in across the border this year. Bringing covid with them. Um covid, perhaps measles. Who knows what else they must. They must be resettled immediately. At least California doesn't have to worry about taking any any more illegals. Refugees, Um, Afghans. Oh, I mean Americans. Um, since California's already reliably Democrat, enough Well, now, one point on that. So you're saying they're not getting on the plane because they're holding out for business class? They don't want believe. Despite the lure of all the free stuff they can get. They can beat your son getting into Harvard because because they're Afghans. So of course, we must discriminate against native born Americans. Sites are thrown out Europe from Afghanistan. Welcome Welcome, just right. Black lives matter on your application, you'll be you'll be starting at Stanford next year, even with the lures of all of that and being able to vote for Joe Biden in a couple of years. Did you see? He wants to move up quickly get them their green cards. Get them registered as quickly he being Biden as quickly as possible. Um That's that's where the problem is. And the Republican Party as usual, is doing the Republican Party thing by by thinking they're going to get credit from the New York Times for their for their for their desperate effort to forget about Americans to forget about their constituents. To forget about covid and crime. Um, and you know Americans hanging on by their fingernails so they can demand more aid for Afghanistan and more flights to get Afghans back here. That is the modern Republican Party. That is their response to this. Here in California. You mentioned a lot of the subjects that have people worked out that led to the signatures being gathered that put this recall on the ballot. You talked about the increase in crime? You talk about homelessness. You talk about the schools being shut down the fires that are being criminally started by the way by companies PG and E that are heavy contributors to Gavin Newsom and the Democratic Party and in return were given legislation that allows them to pay fire victims in company stock, as opposed to actual money that they can use to rebuild their homes. Yet a lot of the candidates that were in this race, including the front runner, Larry Elder and Caitlyn Jenner did a lot of the national shows. They went on Mark Levin. They went on Candace Owens. They went on all of these programs that got them to weigh in on the Texas abortion Law and Mitch McConnell in the 2020 presidential election. And a bunch of subjects that had nothing to do with why this this this election was called and why people were upset with Gavin Newsom. How do we get our candidates to focus on the bread and butter stuff and not Go off into left field with all of these other issues that have nothing to do with anything related to the election. Oh, my gosh, That is such a good point. John Phillips. That is such a good point and a huge mistake. Strategic mistake, um, made by so many so many Republicans. I mean, that's one of the good things I think from what I can tell so far, um, about J. D. Vance's campaign in You know, Ohio he's he's used for. You know, the United States Senate. I think he is the best of the candidates running on the Republican ticket. But as far as I know, you don't see him on too much national stuff. There's some of us who are tweeting about him, but he's really been very Ohio focus. And Oh, my God! Are you write about Um, no, This isn't. This isn't helping helpful to get on national campaigns. This is this should be very California centric. California is a big, important state. Um it's in a lot of trouble. On. It could not be in a worse state. It's it's really unbelievable. California is the most beautiful state in the union. The natural resource is the beaches. Um, the the various I mean, everybody wants to live there. The mountains. The weather. Only Democrats can take a state like that and wreck it and they are wrecking it. John Phillips, repeat sake you've been holding holed up in your living room through Covid. Meanwhile, in you know Florida, Texas, Um, Montana, people are just going about their lives. Everybody's fine. Um, what were covid death? Right? This is a fraud, by the way with the recent alleged uptick in Florida has a lot of old people and they are dying with Covid. Not of Covid, Um, you need they really need to put out the stats on the age of people dying of covid now, because you know they're 90. They're dying of cancer. And look, they also have covid.

That's awesome. I I was going to say was that the Cup game last Sunday was like minus 20 below. It felt anyway, so, but it's great to have baseball back for sure Real Was that the temperature or was that the bat's probably put a little bit of both fairy for sure starting their bats in the phaser. There's no doubt about that. Yeah. First year we've got for Huggins and scats auction there spent so much cool stuff being brought in the R R guy that sent in all those babe. Routes that are already listed had a bunch of other stuff from the thirties. It was like a one of the things he had was a 1933 sport. King's card number six Jim Thorpe, It got graded a P ece three. I was looking up Jim Thorpe. I said, this guy I think was a really great athlete. Basically 100 years ago. He was like the world's greatest athlete. It 1912. He won gold medals in the pentathlon and decathlon. Was born in 18 87 died in in 1953. He, uh, played in Major league baseball from 1913, the 1919 and then in the NFL from 1920 to 26. And then plus a little bit in 28. He was a tailback and and full bath. Just figure out like how was in relation to everybody else at the time. And you and now, Okay, Here's Here's a quiz for a bonus. Yes, you need all the help I can get this season in the movie Jim Thorpe, all American and 1951. What actor big name actor played Jim Thorpe. 1951 1951. Uh huh. Yeah. Is this for? Um You know, I I don't think John Wayne is wrong. Yes. Yeah, because you wanted to get the point anyway, Bill. It wasn't unstable. I say Daddy held Clark Gable. Pretty good guess, but no Burt Lancaster. Okay, Okay. I've heard it said yes. So too did watch e don't lose a point, though, yet, right? You don't lose it. Okay. Thank you. It was a bonus point. If you thank you, thank you. Maybe you would get that was close some other things. I sent in that They just got the Huggins and Scott yesterday, one of our listeners had some really nice 1961 clear basketball cards. That some of them are going to get grated. Because now I don't know if you know about this, but P ece stop doing all their their lesser priced Grating fees, and the least expensive grating fee is $300 occurred. So you really need good stuff in order to get traded, but to show how nice this was there, I think there were Five cards that they were going to get graded by P. Ece and another four or five by sGC and then run. The rest is a lot. There was a Will Chamberlain rookie that was Really nice look, and it was in the holder. The centering added in the color were beautiful. I guess it had a crease in it. The couldn't really tell which hurts the value some, but I could see that doing Like for me. It's still worth getting graded that still worth getting old. Yeah, with the truth about that rookie card? Yes, With Bill. You saw that card, then you wouldn't have beautiful color and centering Nana. Oh, yeah. No, I mean that crease is just the same. I Without that, that card, the $10,000 card easily. I mean, I don't know what it's gonna sell for it Make greater Two or three with that creek or something like that, But it's gonna sell for four or five money. I can guarantee it just looks so nicely. It's gonna end that card all All rookies of howl of Famers air, really hot brand now with people that are are in thinking of it as they liked the collecting idea, But they're doing a lot of investing and stuff. I think there's a lot of those guys are really getting into the The big time name, rookie cards, and if it looks like to me, that would have been perfect. It's still too much for me to buy. If I was God, I don't bet on things that I send in any way. But If I was going to get a will rookie that I liked that maybe wasn't as high a grade as some of them. This would be the press The perfect Yes. Yes, yes. There's so many of the cards like he had to ask a Roberts and rookies to Elgin Baylor rookies, and so many of them are off center in that set just to find one that's centered right. There is a A big advantage to that card, so that would be interesting to see what grade they all end up getting. And then, of course, watching all those. Well, you've got some other biggies in that I didn't send him but from other people, Then you go see some guy that had a huge collection of great stuff. Several of me. Yeah, really busy. I mean, the amount of stuff that people I guess I've been cooped up in their house and dug out while they're just hanging out at home has been amazing that we I've been sending people I know we're doing a Chicago trip is that next week that I'm not mistaken. I think so. Yeah, e think my coming out. He's flying in the Minnesota Picked up a deal renting a truck and then He's headed for Chicago toe. I guess rain. He's been talking to you about Louise supposed to go see and everything and all that. Yeah. I had a guy that had a big collection of autographed items that he had stopped in here and was here. He way sent rainy, a list of like 30 items that he had, and Randy was kind of like, I think we could probably do all of these. It was a good list of autographed item, so I don't know who else is gonna be picking up from, But I'm sure he's got a ah, full round, so we'll see what happens with that. And then, uh, we sent in Duane, who's been a longtime customer. Here he comes in once, once or twice a month. He always looks at that. The old cardboard Well, he he brought in a Gretzky rookie that It's like, OK, this is good enough card to send in the PS, and it got in eight. So that's gonna be knows, you know? Yeah, that was that was a good grade on that card, so it definitely pays too. Get those big type cards grated and csg that I've talked about in the past was since P ECE stop taken in their lesser priced Uh, Different levels of grating and sGC raised their minimum one. I think to $75 I guess, CSG that a new company got deluged with stuff. So now they've got a delay on their stuff to me. I've been telling people you know right now, unless you have a monster card don't even send you e guess in the SMR last. I think it was last month. Where the head of P Ece said they literally had, like a few million cards. Wow, few million. Oh, my Wow. Maybe get it. If you had a card that everybody knew in the industry was gonna, you know, maybe be priced at, like 50 grand. Plus, could you send that there and then prioritize that if you get that, I do They do that. Those ones I think they don't They say Bill a lot of those that their 300 or more, they get those back in two or three. Weeks, but someone or left in that? Yeah, so that what they're doing is the stuff that they're that they're charging 300, or more for based on what it grades and who it is in the value. Once it's in the holder. They're getting that stuff back to us..

It revolves around The Super Bowl that revolves around the results of that Super Bowl. As we saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers just destroy the Kansas City Chiefs 31 to 9, not a touchdown was scored by the Chiefs. Ah, whole lot caught up to them, including a lack Of a cohesive offensive line to protect Patrick my homes and give him an ability to go out there and light some of the other teams up. Not last night. Not against those Buccaneers. We know Tom Brady walked away with the M V P three touchdowns, two to Rob Gronkowski one to Antonio Brown. Just seemed like a deja vu, I guess to Tom Brady. And we have plenty of time to talk about Patrick, my homes and right now the conversation we're having on air. Relates to Tom Brady. And really the fact that he now has seven championships seven rings seven Vince Lombardi trophies that he has hoisted up since he stepped foot. Into the NFL, having now played in almost 20% of all of the Super Bowls, and it's a normal conversation that have, unfortunately, I think About him being the greatest athlete of all time, like Let's put a stop to this. Greatest football player. Yes. Greatest. Most accomplishment will player. Yeah. Okay, fine. But then you start splitting hairs because to say greatest athlete of all time is very vague If you want to say who is the most athletic pro of all time in any sport? Yeah, One of our callers went and said Bo Jackson. Yeah, absolutely. You don't lose and saying Bo Jackson, you don't lose and saying Deane, you don't lose and saying Michael Jordan and LeBron you do not lose fax. But when I think about the greatest professional athlete of all time I personally think about Just Like a total package. Where and what is your level? Of athleticism. Okay. How did you contribute to championships? Because it's always easy to say, Oh, well, someone so has more titles and everybody forget that. How many titles did you went? How were you as an athlete? What impact did you have on your sport? How did you potentially impact society? And so for me. I think it's it's Michael Jordan. It might be a different answer for others, and I'm thinking about this from a team sport perspective because I could look at plenty of individual athletes. If you were to ask me as an overall, I would then say Mohammed Ali. But I would say Jordan, and so as Tom Brady continues to just extend his records and make Super Bowl titles and Super Bowl title wins, just make them even further away from being achieved. He's awesome in his own right? But I'm not ready to call him the greatest athlete of all time. That's a little too far. I think the whole goat thing gets thrown out of proportion is the term goat didn't even exist. I don't even know what 15 years ago There was no goat conversation. But here we are. 855 to 1 to four CBss 855 to 1 to four. CBS. As I said, it's subjective, and I'd like to try to keep the idea into team sports. As to who you believe the greatest athlete of all time is Is it? Tom Brady. If it's not Tom Brady. Then who is it? Let's start off in Charlotte, North Carolina, talking to Frank Frank, you are on CBS Sports Radio. Frank is Tom Brady, the greatest athlete of all time. Good evening, Jr. Well, I'll tell you, I want a President Mallory marks for telling you that my favorite all down the sports team at the University of North Carolina basketball and I approached this from three angles and Jordan is not number one on any of them. First low impact will go with Robinson. Second about most valuable I wanna go with Bill Russell. The greatest athlete. Greatest. Absolutely. First half of the 20th century, A guy named Jim thought flight individual and team sports. And I like that nails it down, baby. Okay. Well, thank you, Frank for calling up from from Charlotte. Yeah, Jim thought was an Olympian Jim Thorpe played a baseball Jim Thorpe is in a pro Football Hall of Fame. This was in the twenties. I'm not going to take anything away from what he achieved for his generation. Yeah, but I certainly don't have Ah, perspective outside of what I've read or seen in a movie or documentary. It's not to take away. But for the other part of what you said I'm not separating these things. Here. You say Bill Russell is the most accomplished. Yeah, You got 11 rings, okay? Let's combine it all. Not asking for individual here, Tony. He's calling up from West Virginia. Tony, your CBS Sports radio man regards those patrol and I appreciate you saying that But real quick. You know, when you broke it athleticism as a whole. I think Michael Jordan is slightly above middle of the pack in the history of all athletes, All sports considered Tom Brady. He's just a professional athlete. He's average at best. But in terms of winning and possessing a leadership ability, that's second to none. I think you have to put those both of those gentlemen at the top who is better? I don't know. I mean, I was born in the eighties, a lot Sports nineties and I want sports to this day. I don't really know who's better. Me personally, I don't know who I could say it better. Um, but when I think of a handful of athletes within the last 10 years that Are unquestionably the best of all time, regardless of the sport. Start up with you same boat. I mean, I don't know who you can physically can come compared to that guy. Does the horse count? Exactly? No. Okay. He's bombing He second, the nine. There's nothing I know. No one comes to my mind and then in baseball, underrated Outstanding Hall of Famer Into his forties, pitching nine well over 90 miles an hour. Nolan Ryan. I mean, no one has seven. Shut out. No one has seven. No hitters. I mean, it's insane and That guy was just a freak. And then you look at basketball first thing you think of his LeBron James. But for me when you look at a player who has a switch You can just turn it on whenever he does, And yet he's very inconsistent. When you have that switch and turns it on Russell Westbrook. The guy stands out to me in the NFL right now. Tony. Tony! Tony, you just named the whole lot of folks, Tony I was I was kind of looking for for, like, one ultimate person. You have one. You got one? Well, it's just this competition. I think that you can't have one. I don't know why we feel the need to. Oh, well, then. Well, then you could've led with that, Tony, we We went on a wild ride of of breaking down individual sports and players. We went so far down the road. We went to an explosive Russell Westbrook. I mean, damn, that's Ah! That's that's interesting there. But, Tony, I appreciate you for calling from West Virginia. Yeah, I get it. That's what makes this conversation interesting. Because you said, You don't think that we can have it? And I told you from my perspective. Yeah, I think we can Like it's real simple because it can go in so many different directions as you broke down. When I think about greatest athlete of all time, it's not solely athleticism. It's not solely championships or career accomplishments. It is an overall impact. And I don't think and any of our lifetimes. Okay. How old you are. You could be listening to me right now.
