"I've got these guys who've been behind me and who've been with me, you know, for many years, and they're ready, they're ready to come off not even the bench, but they're ready to come off their, their roles and to now be a put into starring roles. And I thought it was. It's really not just an unselfish thing to say, but I think it's a realistic thing to say none of us live forever. None of us go on forever. And I thought that you were not only selfless in what you said, but also quite realistic. Trying to be sincere to the -portant thing with is the guys that, you know, that I work with every day here worked with. There's another ingredient that they have that will make them successful that is that they have a passion for the game. They have been here, a long time. These aren't rookies and the rookies left. You know, I need I didn't stay because have a passion to be here and to do what we do on a day-to-day basis, you have to love it, or you're not gonna succeed. So the fact that they've succeeded says to me that they love it, and they'll continue continue to carry the flame. And that's, that's a very good feeling for me because there's nothing more teachers are always most proud of their students, not what they accomplished not what the teachers accomplish. But what the teachers are with their students have. So that's, that's how I feel about these guys that are gonna, you know, you'll be calling them some day. Hopefully. Calling them next week. Next week. I want to replace it already. It's been a pleasure talking to you insert of debriefing you and I know we'll keep in touch, but all the best to you in retirement. Thank you very much.

"He said it was the best tribe. She ever saw. Wow. Joe one. One of thing I'm curious about. I've always thought that baseball has its baseball has its revered characters in history. Babe, Ruth, and Lou, Gehrig and tie Cobb. Maybe not revered. But at least extremely well known and football really is, never had the sort of reverence for history that particularly baseball has had maybe some other sports like boxing. So why is that? And what do you think will happen in this one hundred season of professional football to affect that? Well, here's way, I think it happens and we say it all the time football is the ultimate team sport. And as you know, if you're really a good teammate, then you're diverting. Attention and your cluding those that participate in making the team grade. So I think that the verts from some of the individuals stardom, if you will, that, that we have for some of the, you know, the grace of baseball, or boxing, or more indivi- individualistic, so I think that's part of the dilemma, plus we wear helmets and pro football see the guys and when I had mentioned earlier about, you know, how our selectors in the early days really only followed or so one or two teams or they one of their opponents on a regular basis baseball paid a lot more games. And so you saw a lot more teams and things like that. And, and frankly, was covered much more thoroughly by sports publications of the day. So that to me is why there aren't that many Connex stars of the game, I will then tell you that Johnny United's and Jim Rohn, you know, hushed the crowd in any. Room ever walked into, but they, they were the exceptions, you know, certainly Don Hudson. We're playing today he'd be much better known but still it would be talking about the quarterback. That's throwing the ball lineman were bucking for the quarterback because it is a team sport. Jorgen the spend a lot of fun. I appreciate it. Appreciate your friendship. And you're one of the great things about you, as a professional at your job is that you are. You're the, the definition of sort of a service, individual anytime. I would call anytime anyone of one hundred friends of mine who cover professional football would call you'd get back to him same day. And the encyclopedia would just sort of roll out of your mouth and anyway. I thought you had a really good. I was at your retirement dinner a month ago. And I thought you had a really interesting point to make, and I think it is absolutely totally true that, you know because John Madden had told me and he said to you the same thing. Hey, listen. You Joe Horgan can't retire. We can't replace them. We can't. I mean, there's nobody out there who has the institutional knowledge, Joe, you can't retire, which, obviously, John Madden said to you, and you said at your retirement dinner..

"You know, you see whether their personalities developed you think about Shula in the pulled around this kind of the same way that rain area. I was always prepared very similar Joe. What's your favorite era, in pro football history? You know, mind is, was the twenties because it was a call virgin territory when I started here at the hall really nothing that very seriously documented. So it was a lot of going back and recreating standing that the league I actually had them add teams to their to the rosters that they didn't even know where members of the National Football League. So, you know, that was, you know, just how meetings, give me an example of how you're able to do that. Take me into the fact finding how it happened. And you know there's a difference between team in a franchise. You know, a franchise the right to operate is basically certificate. And what I did is I was fortunate enough to get a full set of the NFL's meeting minutes, which, you know, had been looked at and studied and I went through each of, at the meetings, they would they would be summaries would be detailed meeting minutes, but they would list the attendees, and they would also stipulate you know, franchises applied for an entry into the into the NFL and has accepted. Well, then you would go out, and that would be your primary source you go back out and find the secondary support of that. And, you know, you go to find the usually small towns paper, which these teams came from and indeed, they were team or league members, the tunnel wanna car decks played one game in the National Football League. But we're granted a franchise. The league no idea they existed. They're, you know, others that they had Muncie. I believe it was that they the missed in nineteen twenty. So it was, you know, it was just going back and. Putting it together. And no. The Washington senators another team that existed the New York Giants before the New York Giants that we're familiar with. They were all granted franchises in played games in, in the NFL. But what was confusing? The first year that the NFL had a record book thanking thirty four. So the league around since nineteen twenty so they were going back and kind of painting things together. And, and if the team didn't finish the season, it looked as though they had never been a member. Where, where in fact, they were so it was just a matter of taking time, pre putting the pieces of the puzzle together, but it was always, you know, my favorite ever to look at, and it was such a romantic era, too. We're talking about the warring twenties red Grange coming into pro football and what, you know, dynamic shift that caused and the popularity of the sport and teams like, you know, the Chicago Bears George Halas it was the it was the most in my mind. The most romantic. I'll use that word again era pro football in the sense that they were young sportsmen owners who were trying to make a go of it some failed. Some Joe is you sit back now. And think back of all the people all the men have entered the pro football hall of fame. Who was say the most emotional, the most grateful the happiest when he got in the pro football hall of fame. Well, you know, there's so many people, it's so hard over Ford..

"But the Chicago Bears rarely went on the road back that they would stay at home in play their games home games because this small city teams could make more money, traveling to the large venue in Chicago than to have the bears come to them and play in their, you know, their twenty five hundred liters. So that was really what was going up back in those days looking at the schedule finding those teams that had similar similar circumstances. A one of the ways of doing it was Pottsville, which was in Pennsylvania's, well, pasta and Frankfurt teams would come in and play them back to back. Saturday Sunday and then go back home on a Sunday night and you know, pick up their, their schedule back home. So it wasn't unusual thing. Peter, it was just one of those ways the NFL up, they had traveling teams that didn't play at home at all the Duluth eskimos played rarely home the ring Indians in two years, played one home game and it really wasn't old game. They did have a home field. They played in the neighboring larour Hieaux. So it was just just the way it was it was. Do you, do you remember the, the little the little stories of 'bout about weapon about how they traveled and, and about how you told me this one story? They were playing in Staten Island on a Sunday. And they took a bus to the Staten Island ferry. They, they took the ferry across right? And pick up the story. Well, you know, and they would again, we think of, of stadium's locker rooms and everything was in uniform. Right. You know, travel uniform, and then when the ferry had to walk it was what we're you know, they didn't have travel Joe. I looked it up Joe. I looked it up and that field was approximately one mile from the Staten Island ferry. So imagine they got. On the Staten Island, the Green Bay Packers got on the Staten Island ferry in uniform, and when, when the ferry gut to the doc on Staten Island, they got off and they all walked one mile to the field. They played the game. And they walked back to the Staten Island ferry waited for it got the train back, our got the gut the ferry back, took a bus back to their hotel and the next day that was that, that was the last game of their three day road trip. The other part of it that you told me that was absolutely hilarious. Is that when they went and played in Frankford, they I think you told me this, or I might have read it, but they dressed in a firehouse in Frankfurt and, and then and went over to the field and played after dressing in a firehouse right near the field. We'll give you one bit of the Frankford yellow jackets. You know, we all know the Green Bay Packers or publicly team will. So with the Frankford yellow jackets, they were sponsored by the Frankfurt American Legion. They were nonprofit team, the revenues went right back into three different charities..

"But that's not what this is about right here. I wanted to just reminisce just a little bit about my three years with these alternate great professionals at cadence thirteen. In fact, Chris Corcoran, who has been my boss. Cadence asked me to come over when I was still at Sports Illustrated, and Chris was the ultimate professional. He's a guy who knows the podcast business, so well at the time I was doing my podcast at Sports Illustrated for another company, and Chris came in and convinced me. And convince the people at Sports Illustrated that they were the ones to handle my podcast and everything that he said every single thing that he said he would do he did. And over the last three years, he and my producer for these shows Bob tablet, or. Have essentially taught me the podcast business. You know, Chris and Bob gave me some equipment. So when I would travel on the road at training camp, and I've done several games sort of live games that we turned into podcasts when, when they when we would do that. I never in my life traveled with, you know, a couple of microphones and my my tape recorder before. But they taught me how to do that. They taught me how to make everybody sound right in the middle of locker room how to hold the microphone close so you don't get a lot of you don't get a lot of lousy noise in there. But more than that, they basically taught me how to do a professional podcast. And I'm really, really grateful to them. I want to just tell a couple of stories about. What fun this is been working for cadence? And what fun it's Ben to really learn the podcast business over the last three years. So tell you one story Bob tablet, or my producer over the last three years. And I kind of got this idea, wouldn't it be fun to do some live games to actually go to games and figure out how to do a podcast at a game you interview, some people afterwards. And you know, I would do maybe six or eight interviews. I would do a couple of here. I am at Lincoln financial field. Remember we did a Monday night game with Washington and Philadelphia and afterwards all the median Philadelphia's looking at me because I'm over in the corner and I've got Carson Wentz and then I've got Doug Peterson. This is in the middle of their, their Super Bowl run. But I've got these guys alone. And so what was so interesting about doing these podcasts is basically, I would then transmit these interviews to Bob, tablet or, and I would essentially it would be that was a Monday night game. It would be may be to forty five AM in the press box at Lincoln financial field, I would have transmitted the interviews and I would go and find some very quiet spot where I'm not a bothering all the writers who are writing on deadline. Probably wasn't to forty five probably one forty five, and so I remember I did all of my sort of my bridges and my writing I sat down and wrote stuff, and I did it all in a stairwell at Lincoln financial field because I was conscious about really not disturbing the guys on deadline. I didn't want to be one of those radio guys who sat in a press box and said here we are Lincoln financial field and we've the eagles have just beaten. Washington, because that, that disturbs, everybody trying to write their stories. So I mean this is amazing. I probably would finish transmitting all of my stuff to Bob maybe at three fifteen. I would get in my car, and I drive back to my home in New York. And I'd go to sleep. I'd be exhausted. It'd be about five thirty and I would get up and I'd have about ten or fifteen comments on Twitter. Hey, love your podcast. Listen to it on the way to work. I mean think about that. I got this stuff to Bob, and it'll buy I don't know four or five o'clock, and he invented a podcast, so those were those are fun days. And I think what I really liked about that is that I am convinced that what we have to do in our business is, we have to give people information and interviews and stories where they can receive..

Joe Horrigan leaves Pro Football Hall of Fame after 42 years

"Joe Horrigan. Yes. Forty two years, the keeper of the flame at the pro football fame his last day on the job as yesterday. Mean so would you see the buildings still standing? I don't know. Personally held it up in confirmed. But one of the nicest sweetest guys. ESPN did a story about have over the weekend. I mean he has been doing everything for the hall of fame. And in terms of a great story when we first. When we. Like the sweetest man he would be the ones calling the hall of famers on the phone to let them know. A couple times doing pretty cool, rich because. Yeah, because we all right? So I'll tell story here. So we're on the air in, in Houston, Texas, at the Super Bowl for Super Bowl thirty eight our first one we ever did. Okay. Or the calendar year two thousand four NFL season two thousand three year that the patriots. The panthers. And then we watched them beat the eagles the next year Jacksonville. So reason why I'm bringing this up is our set was right near in the convention center, I ever NFL total axis set right near the main convention center dra- hall like the largest room in the convention center where they held all the press conferences, including for the pro football hall of fame. Now all you folks out there. No, the pro football hall of fame class is announced now at the NFL honors they try to keep it quiet. David Baker, the president of the pro football hall of fame walks around and knocks on doors of hotel rooms were all the eligible finalists are holed up with their families hoping to hear that knock on the door, and it's created some really amazing video moments where David Baker lets the players know that. They're now fully enshrined. They're immortal. It's like a very nice. It's, it's like a publisher's clearinghouse moment without the check. Right. So that's the way it's done now. And they try and keep that quiet until it's announced that the NFL honors a used to be they just announced in the press conference. That's it. And the players who were finalists were invited to the Super Bowl city and those that thought they were gonna make it showed up. Others were working on TV in many other parts of their their lives. There were working professionally at the Super Bowl and for just happened to be there, and some just wouldn't show because they didn't wanna show up to the host city and then find out they didn't make it. It's expensive. You know, and it stinks. I remember one year Warren Moon. Told me the year he got in Warren Moon. Was in town, and he was driving in a car. Somewhere around the city. I forget, what city was announced he was ending his driving in a car, and he was either going to get the phone call from the hall to say that he was in and he'd show up at the convention center drive convention center, or you didn't get the call, Dr the airport. Town. So that's the way it used to be. We're sitting there. And our green room was right next to our NFL, total access at, and John Elway and Barry Sanders, went in that year together. Jill. Look that up for me, make sure that this might not a pulling this story here. Was it? John Elway in Barry Sanders. Think went into the same pro football hall of fame class in the summer of two thousand four. And they were announced N Houston together, and they were. Correct. And they were in our green room. They were in our green room, just chilling out before they were being brought into the draft hall into the into the convention center, press conference hall room. And being announced. And we got an idea at the NFL network. You know what? Let's make this a thing. Like we had video of them waiting, and just we could have interviewed them and like, okay so players are here. And the press conference is going there. Let's televise the press conference. So the next year, I was the host of the press conference, and it was. Difficult. Tap dancing for me when I'm up there and hard-bitten media of the NFL world was used to just having the announcement happen. Right. And those who were there showing up and they'd be there, and they'd find out the rest of them. Instead, we just drew. We I think I kinda Jim great it like we try to draw out and the people in the room. The media members room really getting pissed off. So next year, it was just like we're gonna nounce them and wait for the people to come and show up, and then I would interview them, but sometimes it would take them five ten minutes to get to the convention center. And then the meantime, we would Joe would get the guys who was not who are not there on the phone for me to interview live. I remember those. Joe a couple of times me on live NFL network television. Just trying to tap. That's I forget the name of the guy, you don't have to look it up either. He was a veterans committee. And shrining who had been out of public life for very long time. And I'll be honest with you, who I never heard of I had no idea, he played like it was really from a long time ago. But we were so desperate to fill time. Joe got him on the phone. I don't wanna say. Joe got the guy on the phone, and as we're coming back from commercial break, he tells me, so and so's on the phone, but he probably can only answer questions because he has dimension. Mike ally. Gosh and Joe then ran away. Because he had another phone call to make. Sweetheart. I mean this guy is just so and I just was okay. You know, this is a great moment for this man, I asked him a couple of questions. He was able to actually answer them. But Joe gave me that nice little heads up. You know, hey, just right heads up for you. I may not be able to answer a single question. Guy. He just a sweetheart of a guy and I just wanted to say, thank you, Joe, he's out there, driving around, or he's on the driving range, or wherever somebody just let them know gave a

"Basically? Well, it was a lucky break after the game with me, and I said that was not look. You've practiced that probably a hundred times a day since you were a kid. I've read about him. He's an Australian rules football kid, and he just loves kicking the football. So he's going to be very interesting to watch. I don't know whether that qualifies as offense of her defensive rookie of the year, but he's going to be one of those Seahawks by the way I think are going to be really good. Everybody says, well, they got all these questions about them. I think they're going to be really good. Lastly, this has nothing to do with the NFL nothing, but I met Mark Maguire on this trip. He's the bench coach for the San Diego Padres. I went down one day Bill Johnston, the former PR guy, the San Diego Chargers did not go with them when the chargers moved from San Diego to Los Angeles. So now the Los Angeles chargers have new PR staff, mostly new and Bill Johnston is. Is the San Diego Padres. I think he's director of corporate communications, but he's got a PR job with the Padres. And so he invited me down. I went down with Don a pseudo and his son Dom is the editor of my column football morning in America. And we went down and we got a tour of the clubhouse and everything spent some time with the general manager AJ prelature and had a good time also got to meet. We were there. They were playing the Diamondbacks Tori level low, the Diamondbacks manager, and I had a good conversation. I got to meet Nick Ahmed of the shortstop for the Diamondbacks who I don't even. I don't know if he knew this or whatever. But when I was in high school in Connecticut, Nicomedes mom was a good friend of mine Janus Arado. So I got to meet Nick, watch him play, and. God, he's sixteen Jackson's year pretty good anyway. So mitt, Mark Maguire. He was just sitting alone watching some tape. In some side room in near where the Padres club houses and normally in a situation like that, what you wanna do is basically, hey, good to meet you. You know, pleasantries all that stuff, but we actually talk for a few minutes and at the end of it, I just said to him, you know, I really admire how you handled what must have been hellish situation for you and how you've come out on the other side and you seem to have rebuilt your life and you're just a regular guy in baseball. I said, I just think that's very cool. I don't know if people notice that or whatever, but I Meyer the way you came out of it and he goes, thank you. He said, I love the game. I love baseball. It's just a cute moment of that. Sometimes you, you're on a training camp trip tour and unexpected things happen, and it's just kind of fun. But anyway, those are a few thoughts I have about training camp. I'm not sure whether this works, whether you'd rather hear me talk to somebody, but I just thought it would be fun to you. You know to basically do something a little bit different on the podcast this week, and I appreciate you bearing with me and listening while I ramble a little bit about NFL training camps.

"He just reminds me so much right. Now of on Miller, the player he hopes to emulate, they went to the same school in Myles. Garrett has shown so far in training camp in preseason games that he's going to be a force to be reckon with watching the Browns. I know we say this every year. I don't like them offensively. I think they're lying is terrible. And we have to remember they went, oh, and sixteen last year in lost their best player. So everybody just say, hey, they're going seven and nine, six and ten this year. That's gorgonzola. But I do think that they're going to be better. I do think that without any question that they're going to be a competitive defense. I'll be very surprised if they don't hold eight nine ten teams under twenty points in two thousand eighteen. It was interesting being in camp watching the San Francisco, forty Niners. Everybody wants to pump the brakes on the forty Niners as do I, but it's hard not to stand on the sidelines in practice. And if you're a forty Niner fan, it's hard to not get excited particularly when you watch Jimmy Garoppolo in you, watch Kyle Shanahan calling the plays for coaching them and being sort of the, you know, the the guy, pulling the marionette strings behind him. Tony Romo told me a month or so ago that Kyle Shanahan is a genius, and I do not use that term lightly. I think the combination of Shanahan and and Jimmy Garoppolo is gonna make this team a contender to win double digits every year that they're together. Now, let's have a note of caution. The secondary has some bumps is not great if Ruben fosters had concussion issues. Is not healthy playing consistently. Their linebacker core is not that good, and they've drafted a lot of guys high on the defensive line. But other than to forest Bugner I question whether any of them is going to be a superstar, so they're going to really struggle. I think holding people down consistently this year. But I also think they're going to be able to score heck of a lot of points. Now, one of the most impressive players I saw on the training camp trip was a punt a rookie punter from Australia, and he played college football at the university of Texas. His name is Michael Dixon. He was a fifth round pick by John Schneider and the Seattle Seahawks and the game. I saw him in Minnesota in week three was the first time I bet in NFL history where a guy has had to fifty five plus yard punts that both died inside the five. Yard line, they didn't just die. They hit inside the five, and they took a hard right turn, and it was the most amazing thing. And he pleaded..

"Back on the Peter King podcast in this, of course, is Peter King, and I'm going to finish up now with a few thoughts, non quarterback thoughts on my training camp trip to or thirty six days across the United States. And as I said, leading off the podcast really thought that I wanted to sort of empty my mental note book about what I saw out there and really some of the opinions I have after seeing a bunch of these teams. So I went to me Jon Gruden the new coach of the Oakland Raiders the old in new coach of the Oakland Raiders seventeen years between coaching jobs with Gruden in Oakland. I think I'm writing saying he left when he was thirty eight and now he's fifty five and I went there to see if there is any dimension of verve spirit, whatever. And although I found him when I watch. Him practice to be not the yeller screamer owner of every minute of practice that I remember of Jon Gruden. I still found that he really really loves what he's doing and he's inventing these new drills that I've never seen before. I wrote about this in my football morning in America column at NBC sports dot com. I wrote about how he practice. He has a one session that might be about fifteen to eighteen minutes long where the quarterbacks practice without laces on the football and you say, what in the world is that? But he found when he watched football during his absence during his nine years away from the game, he found that when he watched the game, he would see quarterbacks taking shotgun snaps and getting heavily rushed and not having the time to find the laces to throw the ball properly said like Ben Rothlisberger does this all the time Derek card did it too when you get a shotgun. Snap, and you can't put your fingers on the laces. You basically have to hurry up and throw it in whatever shape you get the ball in. I don't mean shape, but I mean, if you don't have the ability to use the laces, you gotta throw the ball anyway. So it was really, really interesting talking to him about a lot of things. But one thing I found myself thinking we talked about this. I want you to think about this for second that Jon Gruden when he was a coach in Tampa Bay gave Kyle Shanahan his first coaching job in the NFL. Kyle Shanahan was twenty four years old came in as an offensive, quality control coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Now, Kyle Shanahan obviously is the coach of the San Francisco forty Niners a very good young quarterback, Jimmy Garoppolo, and they will meet this year in midseason the Oakland Raiders at the San Francisco forty Niners. He gave another guy his first job in the NFL. EV young kid in two thousand seven. His first job in the NFL also is an offensive. Quality control coach, a wide receiver from Miami of Ohio named Sean McVay and Sean McVay came down to Tampa and basically did a lot of the stuff that Kyle Shanahan had done. I think three years earlier and and Now Sean McVeigh is the new wonder kind coach in the NFL brought. The Rams in his rookie year is coach from thirty second in the NFL and offense in two thousand sixteen to I in the NFL in offense in two thousand seventeen and now first game of the season, it's going to be Sean McVeigh at Jon Gruden Monday night football, the captured a week, one of the season, and I just find it. So ironic that Jon Gruden who was the master, who was the teacher who brought in these. Wet behind the ears kids. These guys just getting their starting coaching, Kyle Shanahan, Sean McVeigh, and now Kyle Shanahan Sean McVay probably two of the five hot coaches in football right now, maybe to the three or four, but very popular around the NFL very well respected early on in their careers. And now it's Jon Gruden is going to have to try to catch up to the kids that he helped train to get in this position. Just a fascinating story in my opinion for other quick points. Number one, the Browns really have a good defense. I love Djibril peppers. He's not getting a lot of attention yet, but I think Djibril Djibril peppers in the secondary and sort of being a monster Rover back at linebacker in the secondary is really going to be dangerous for people to account for and Myles Garrett..

"And now my conversation with Joe Horrigan the executive director of the pro football hall of fame after meeting. We had last week in canton, Ohio. Back on the Peter King podcast, can't no Haya with pro football hall of fame just finished a meeting as a member of the pro football hall of fame contributors selection committee. We've just finished a meeting where Pat bolan and Gil Brandt have been selected as the contributors finalists for the two thousand nineteen class. They'll be voted on on February two, two thousand nineteen the day before the Super Bowl in Atlanta. If they get eighty percent of the vote from committee of forty eight than they will be members of the hall of fame class of two thousand nineteen. But I'm happy to be joined here in canton today by Joe Horrigan. Who I would consider to be. Along with Steve sable the biggest keeper of the flame in of the National Football League. Now that Steve sable obviously is not with us anymore. I consider Joe Horrigan to be to be that guy always call on Joe for for help on football history. He's always got a good conscience about things. He's the executive director of the pro football hall of fame kind of the unofficial official archivist of all things pro football at the hall of fame in canton. So anyway, Joe, I've given you too long of an introduction, and I have too much information that I wanna get from you. So thanks for joining. We'll thanks on introduction. It's usually just, here's Joe. Here's Joe. Appreciate that. So long meetings. So we're a little punchy was five hours and forty one minutes the way this works basically for those who don't know the process is that there are five modern era finalists that are selected every year to be voted on in the pro football hall of fame meeting the day before the Super Bowl, the selection meeting, and they come from finalist lists of fifteen. Former players or coaches. And so, but this committee I think has been so interesting over the last five years, we're reaching the end of the five-year run in which the hall of fame established rules that basically said every other year, we will advance to contributors to the pro football hall of fame finalist list, and we will advance one senior committee of nominee. And then the next year it'll be two seniors, one contributor. So we've done that for five years now. I guess I'll start Joe by just asking this the end of this five year period. Where do you think the hall stands right now on how this is going to go in the future with the contributors list and the senior candidates list? That's great. Question Peter and while I don't have the definitive answer because. Decisions haven't been made. I can say, the process will be that internally. Here we will look at, you know, did what we did for five years? Did it meet our expectations? Did itself what we've argued at the point that we started this, that there was a huge backlog of seniors and a growing backlog of contributors and contributed a little different in the sense that it wasn't so much. The backlog it was that we found that if you historically looked at the time line, the hall of fame opened in nineteen sixty three and the really hadn't been, but one contributor elected since nineteen sixty eight that had that had gone head to head with players on the finalist list. So we knew that the wasn't even playing field. So we wanted to address that now whether we stay with a two one one to formula for that, that'll be the first question and that actually the segues the first question is, did we accomplish our goals? And I think we have, I think it's been affective in the sense of our senior candidates have been elected. So we're moving along, although we. Are getting fewer seniors than we were in the previous system? Two years every year for the seniors to to nominate. Yes, I should say yes and one and no contributor specifically set aside. So to keep the maximum number of of hall of famers at eight, we reduced every other year, one of the seniors out and put in a contributor as a finalist nominee..

"And I told luck about that. And I think he felt he felt like, you know, that's something that might apply to him. I think if he were ever in a room with Tom Brady and could have a conversation with him, I really think he'd ask him about that, but I get the feeling that luck is going to be in good condition. Frank Reich tells me the coach of the colts that he. Believes that he's going to be able to play sixteen games. And so I think Andrew luck is going to be a fascinating figure to watch, but he's going to enter the season week one against the Cincinnati Bengals without any health restrictions whatsoever on his surgically repaired right shoulder. So let's go to Green Bay where this sort of a combo platter thought. In say around July ten, I forget exactly when it was, but NBC where I now work has a golf tournament in Tahoe. Celebrity golf tournament with a lot of athletes in it and Rogers was going to be there. So I went there spent a little time with them one one day after a practice round and very interesting. He I followed him around for the last six holes of his practice round. And there was, I don't know. There's maybe one hundred people on every hole just watching the the players are Steph curry, Charles Barkley. I mean, there's a lot of famous people there. So and an Aaron Rodgers took a picture with everybody who asked he signed everything. He said, Hello, he, you know, he shook hands. He just was he was incredibly friendly, and I asked him afterwards about, I said, man, you, it's hard to be you, but you. Really responded well, and one of the things we talked about that day was how he really felt like he got some good life advice from the Dalai Lama. He met. He had an audience with the Dalai Lama in India, Indian the off season, and he spent ninety minutes with the Dalai Lama. The Dalai Lama basically told him, hey, stop and smell the roses. You know, settled down. He, you know, you're enjoy life. Enjoy what you do. And I really found that day Aaron Rodgers had the patience of a Saint and the day I saw practice in Green Bay, he was, he was, he was really enjoying the moment. I think he realizes he's entering the hundred year of the Green Bay Packers franchise. He is the, you know, the flagship person for one of the NFL's flagship franchises. And I think he is smelling the roses these days and really appreciating his lot in life. Finally, Kirk cousins in Minnesota. It's interesting. I. Find Kirk cousins to be truly one of the nicest people I've ever been around covering the NFL. I was on a was writing about the NFL's Europe plans year and a half ago, and I went over to England when. Would Kirk cousins in four other players were taking a tour throughout England, and I was on a train with him from London to Liverpool. He and his wife and just one of the most pleasant intelligent guys. I've had the pleasure meeting covering the NFL for the last thirty four years. And so I think it was a good signing by the Minnesota Vikings without any question. I'd be a little bit worried that at the time. I think that that at least right now, Kirk cousins hasn't proven that he can take team deep into the playoffs. He's had a couple of big late season games with Washington won a couple years ago against the giants where you know the giants were down in the dumps. If Washington wins, they make the playoffs. Cousins does not play. Well, those are the kind of things you know, like David price pitching in October and not pitching well until you actually do it. Everybody's gonna say, can he do it? And I saw the Vikings in the preseason against Seattle last week, and cousins did not play particularly well in that game. And I just found myself thinking, you know, I really hope for his sake. You know, he's not thinking about all this pressure on them because he really didn't have a whole lot of pressure. He was the the quarterback picked after Robert Griffin, the third in Washington. So you know, I, I'm just hoping for his sake that he will..

"He got hurt, and I'm just telling you when I left the feel that day he looked fantastic. He came out of the locker room at the eagles novacare complex in south Philly, right across the street from citizens Bank park, and he came out running. Out of the out of the locker room, and he came out onto the field in immediately just started running around in and even this is before all the warm ups they did. I mean, certainly he does a lot of stuff pre pre warm ups because of his knee injury. But he came out and he was on fire from the starter practice. It was about maybe eighty eighty two degrees. That day doesn't sound hot, but this was an unforgiving sun that day in very, very humid in Philly. And I just remember thinking it was about two hours and fifty minutes of practice and Carson Wentz never stopped running the whole time. I did not see him limp once and I walked away that day thinking Carson Wentz is playing opening day. Now let me fast forward to the eagles Browns preseason game in week. Three of the preseason I was there and I found the eagles to be a bit more. More of a tense team that night. And the reason is in part they have not played well on offense. Their first unit offense has been on the field with Nick foles playing quarterback for fourteen series this preseason, and they've got zero touchdowns. Foles hasn't been awful, but he has not been really good either and his productions been terrible. So I think the eagles are really concerned about this. And this is the first time I saw Doug Peterson, get a little bit tense with me. I've known him for a long time. He's very easy going guy and he was a little bit tense afterwards when I asked him. Well, I mean, I watch Carson Wentz workout before the Game. Boy. Did he look good running around sprint, sprint sprinting to his right sprinting to his left, throwing the ball on a line just looking really good and and Peterson, had this long pause six or eight seconds and basically said, you'll have to come to the game. I think this is wearing on Doug Peterson. I know it's wearing on Carson Wentz who believes that he's in shape to play football. I do think that Nick foles will play my gut feeling. I don't have any inside information, but my gut feeling foles is probably gonna play. Let's say the first two games of the season. I think there would be a nice way to get a Carson Wentz into the lineup week three at home against the Indianapolis, Colts. The colts do not have a good defense. And to me, I think that seems to make the most sense for win to play Carson Wentz. Now let's go to Andrew luck. Spent some time with him in Westfield, Indiana the first year of a new training camp site for the colts. And you know, I've, I've had a good relationship with Lexi's come into the league for six years, and it was interesting last year. He just disappeared off the face of the earth even when he was not playing, he was not around to speak to. They didn't make them available. And I found out this is Lux admittance to me that he just wasn't a really good guy last year. He was mopey a wasn't letting people help him. And he told me flat out that he believed there was a chance. He would never play football again and certainly not be able to play at the level that you know, he thought he would when he graduated from Stanford. I, I actually told Andrew luck not that not that this helped him and all, but I told them about right here on this podcast the week after the Super Bowl after the patriots and and falcons played d. remember the story that that Tom Brady told when you Brady had this this, you know this. This this pain early in his career, and he was just in pain almost all the time. He said when he was twenty five or twenty six years old, I forget, you know what he said. But when he was trying, he had pain all the time and he's thinking how in the world, I going through my career with pain like this all the time, and then he found new ways to to stretch to work out to get ready to play football. And it turns out that here he is at forty one and he doesn't have nearly the pain at forty one than he had it twenty five at twenty six or as he had..

"Welcome to the Peter King podcast where I talked to a lot of people around the sports, particularly in football, but not exclusively, but it's the football time of year. So football were going to talk this week. I'm gonna give you my memories. My ten best things that I saw. Traveling around the United States going to see twenty two teams over thirty six days in training camps around the United States. So we're going to do the podcast a little bit differently this week. I'm gonna do two segments myself because I thought of what I would want to do this week. And I just thought I've done so much on this training camp trip been home for a couple of days now, but I've done so much on this training camp trip. I've seen so much. I've learned so much and an awful lot of that. I haven't written in my football morning in America column at NBC sports dot com. I've just got it in the old cranium. So I just thought, here's the way we're going to do this podcast can be different than anyone I've ever done before. I'm going to do to Saguenay maybe twelve minutes a piece and in the middle of that, sandwiched by my two Saguenay is going to be a segment. I'm gonna do with Joe Horrigan the pro football hall of fame executive director and archivist, and in my opinion, after the death of Steve sable the real keeper of the flame in professional football, you just simply don't know him. So we had a meeting last week, the pro football hall of fame that I'll tell you about, and then I'm going to have a conversation with Joe Horrigan, but sandwiching that will be some thoughts. I, I'll have a section about quarterback thoughts as I went around training camps. And then I will have a section later in the podcast, all about all other thoughts, five other specific thoughts I had going around from camp to camp. Around the United States. So we're going to start off first with a few of my thoughts about quarterbacks. And you know, I'm gonna start in Baltimore. That was the first stop on the training camp trip, Owings mills, Maryland, where obviously, Joe flacco who won the Super Bowl five years ago for the for the Baltimore Colts and got handsomely rewarded twenty million dollars a year contract, and he just has not played well the last two or three years last two years because of injury. But obviously the Baltimore, Ravens drafted a quarterback in Lamar Jackson and in the first round. And they aim at some point to give the reins of this team to Lamar Jackson. And I found Joe flacco what I went to ravens camp. He's the same old joke kind of laconic and not really seemingly upset by much, but somebody who's. Been around the ravens for a long time, says Joe wants to stick it up their rear end, you know, Joe wants to show the ravens that there was no need for you to draft a quarterback, and I'm going to show you why the day I saw him. He threw six balls over forty yards, four completions, and I said to myself my gosh, this looks like the flacco who went in beat Denver in the wildcard game. I think two thousand twelve throw in the ball all over the place and outdueling Peyton Manning. So look, I don't know what's going to happen in Baltimore. I can't swear that flock is going to have a great year. But all I know is I think he is soup rim Lee motivated by the ravens, drafting a quarterback. He's healthy for the first time after two training camps being hurt. And I think Joe flacco has got a very good chance to have a redeeming year quarterbacking the Baltimore Ravens. Now. Let's go to Carson Wentz and Philadelphia. The third stop on my trip was in Philadelphia to see the first day that Carson Wentz had pads on since the day in December two thousand seventeen. When he hurt his knee, suffered a season, ending knee injury against the Rams and and that was on December nine. I think two thousand seventeen. So here we were ill basically eight and a half months later. And this was the first time he was going to put pads on and play at full speed with pads on since the day..
