"If, you're the number one recruit in like the tech industry or the architecture industry. or I would imagine coming out of like. Some sweet offer. You're going to an elite institution, right? You're going to middlekauff and Howard, or you're going to work at Google or you're gonna go work at the best. They're going to pay a lot. You're going to work with the breath the best in the field. You'RE GONNA start off pretty well. But in pro sports especially football, you're the number one overall pick there is no draft lottery you go to the shittiest team in the league. And this year it happened to go arguably one of the worst franchise me definitely one of the worst franchise since I've been alive they had a little stretchered Marvin Lewis but for the most part, the bengals in my of my thirty five years I would imagine if I delve into it twenty, five of them have been pretty bad. And Joe Bureau went there and I give them credit. Because I said, I would have held out I would've gone John Elway ally manning in refused to play there, but he didn't. Now. Part of it is he's from Ohio for whatever reason he appreciated those people I know. I. Understand why you appreciate those people but I mean the franchise, the people in the franchise didn't bother him. Any went there. I thought he was Kinda crazy, and as you see through the first couple of games, his offensive line is terrible. He's going to be really really good poice communists the plays he makes let's be Real Joe Mixing a Stud Aj Green hasn't been good new. Year's A. J.

He had forty six yards on the ground. Now, he makes plays in the passing game to another forty yards. But Joe broke through for over three hundred yards and three touchdowns. But the box score doesn't do him justice you had to watch the game. The first half, and especially the second half there was there was a play in the in the first half where. They're basically backed up on their own goal line. Excuse me the second half he gets strips act they end up falling on the ball on the one yard line score a little later most rookie quarterback's would've crumbled most human beings in any new job go through a lot of adversity they go into the tank just think about it your first job out of college. Something goes terribly wrong. Basically your third or fourth week on the job it's hard to just keep battling through that day. He came back the next series and let him down for a touchdown..

"Blackledge joined us here on sports byline. Did you have any inkling or thought about where you wanted to play NFL football taught No not really You know it was a dream to play in the League and You know I, was just hoping to to get a great shot at it and and really you know. You asked me if I had a favorite team you know at that time growing up, it might have been the browns I was. I was kind of guy, and so if I had any team that I've thought about more the browns and then my senior year in college at Penn State, my bag higher by the steelers. So that was his first year coaching in the. NFL was my senior college. So obviously I had an interest in the steelers because of my dad, of course, that franchise very storied franchise from owner right down to the championships they won in the nineteen seventies. Did you have a chance to interact with one of the players and what did you come away if you did about the attitude of a professional football player? Well it was different in the sense that the different age groups you know our range of ages You know some guys were were married some guys. Some guys had kids I think that was the biggest thing you could tell that it was business but still foot all the game is still played with the same rules and and those kind of things. But it was played by men and and professional men and I think that was that was the biggest thing that I saw whenever I walked in a professional locker went to an NFL game and had the opportunity to do that A. Couple of times when I was in college. Before I actually went into link myself nine, nine three a very special year for drafting quarterbacks at least in the national football league I was doing Stanford Games at that time and of course, at the pleasure of watching John elway throughout his career at Stanford and just Kinda marveled at the way he threw the ball I felt sorry for the receivers because a lot of them had bruises on their chests. When they got a ball from him but it was you it was John. elway was Dan Marino. It was Jim Kelly and it was O'Brien as well. That's a lot of talent in one one year it give me a handicap over how you as a player saw the other quarterbacks in that draft. There was nothing. Tony was also. In a group addressing the I never a couple of other guys that didn't go in the first round that were really good college quarterbacks. Remember there's a guy named Reggie Collier I think was southern miss at the time and But there were a lot of really good quarterbacks. You know the difference then there was no, there weren't these recruiting services. There weren't the the All Star Games where you met Kaiser. saw guys they want the Nike combines or elite eleven you were with these other guys heard a little bit about guys but but you didn't see him or have relationship or contact with, and so I didn't know I knew John Elway was but I'd never seen him never met him or or watch any. Film of him or anything and same with Dan Marino Jim Kelly those guys were kind of more from my area in Pittsburgh Northeastern Ohio, western PA area. So I knew a little bit more about them occasionally you knew you were going to on the same recruiting trip or to the same school that maybe they were at the week before it's weeks before something. Like that but you know when it was all said and done obviously I was a tremendous class and a great honor for me to be a part of that class and You know I live in Canton Ohio and I'm on the board, the pro football hall of fame and and you know three of those guys are in the hall of fame and it's it's You know it's a tribute to that class and and and fun for me to interact with those guys to this day to as well. How surprised were you that you were drafted ahead of Marino and also Jim Kelly was it a surprise to you as well? Yeah I was surprised to me I. Mean I I had a pretty good feeling. I would be trapped in the first round and and that was really the determining factor for me coming out because I could have gone back and played another year at Penn state at another year of eligibility but I was pretty confident I was going to be a first round pick but I I really didn't know where and actually the area where O'Brien and Easson and Jim Kelly were. Were drafted his where I kinda thought I would go and there was projects in buffalo new. England. All kind of drafts in the middle of the round and so when I went to Kansas City, I was a little bit of a surprise to me as far as Dan. Dan There was some some. Rumors and some stuff about him that maybe not can down a little bit He was a great player He was a great player in college and you knew he'd be a great player in the NFL and and actually for him that probably worked out better in the long run because he went to a more established team and and You know sat behind David Woodley for a short amount of time and then when when he took over. Of course he he ended up making the most of it for sure you're picked in the first round with the seventh pick and usually when somebody goes in the first round, certainly quarterback and that high in the first round there kinda looked upon as a savior. What was the expectation out of Todd blackledge by the Kansas City.

Broncos Finalizing Deal to Make Pat Shurmur New Offensive Coordinator
"Well we just talk to my class are brokers insider who told us that the deal is done with that tactic Schirmer to be the new see for the Denver Broncos official press release from the team hopefully coming sometime before the end of the week big al with Schirmer being the new offense of coordinator what do you see as the pros and cons for this this young this young offense with the very young rookie quarterback is gonna be going into your to what I'm looking for are the things that that you can give a team and that's easy to roles and I always talk about this because I believe that that's the key to winning football games in this league how can you create an easy throw a one on one getting the guy wide open like we saw Devine to Adam's last night plan for the Packers you know the Packers go with the heavy formation they run a play that look like it's going to be a post but it then it turns into a corner is a seven right and then you look up and you say all my goodness the guy has a football it's one on one coverage he makes one guy miss and any out runs the coverage that's it easy to roll okay it's not fit the ball in the window it's not a drop back play act soon getting a guide you know own a seventeen yard dig route it's none of those things it's making the girls that the good players make to wide open guys but you have to design those plays for those guys to be wide open and the quarterback shouldn't be surprised when a wide open and when they're not wide open take the ball and run it that's what the good teams in the NFL do that's how you win football games in this business by getting your quarterback easy throws that you can feel good about and we didn't do that especially not against the Kansas City Chiefs are we rich gang real and I hate to see guys getting fired trust me it's it's not it's it's you know nobody wants to see that I wish there was a way that he could have stayed on and work with the quarterbacks something of that nature but maybe it's maybe it's too muddy if he's in Rome but you know it just we just have to have a change in and once again the greatest throws in the NFL aren't necessarily the ones that are forty M. fifty yards down the field like we saw this weekend but we also saw we also saw Patrick my homes we were out to the running back I think it was Williams out of the backfield on what looked like to be a six star pass it ended up being a seventeen yard touchdown the design of the play against the covers that was played was perfect and the guy had a free run to the end zone I mean those are the plays that you expect out of a great offensive coordinator and that's certainly what I'm looking forward Pat Shurmur who spent a lot of time with Andy Reid and Philadelphia I take it I think he was there for at least ten seasons with Andy Reid going from offense of line coach tidy and coats two quarterbacks coach so he understands the offense it's complete and of course in that Minnesota offense that's what we have to go last because that's where he was calling plays exclusively you look at that team and what they were able to do and the way that they brought on Adam Thielen out of no where to become a star well you know that he understands what kind of receipt what the receivers need to look like and not how they need to run there are so many different ways that we can look at this as be an improvement to be an improvement to what we had last year in part of it believe it or not Joe Joe is evaluating players for the upcoming draft that's a big big part of it because trust me there is a common formula to run in this offense and really make it work Stefon Diggs is the guy that blows the doors off of the defense is for the Minnesota Vikings before we and you look at back at Pat Shurmur when he was with Andy Reid it was the son Jackson now what is a in to read as he has he'll explosive wires see what to add to re kill who blows the doors off so I'm almost guaranteed you I'm almost guaranteeing you were going to find a guy that can blow the doors off of the defense in round one or two of this year's NFL draft that's how you make that all things work do you have a guy that can a workhorse guy who can catch the balls and make it happen that's called sudden but we need one of those guys that is scary says that blows the doors off the defense the evaluation process of what that guy looks like I trust Pat Shurmur more than I do John Elway to

What just happened? Making sense of Andrew Luck's shocking decision
"You know what how is indeed going to remember Andrew luck's legacy in in his career what what is his era and his legacy going to mean to those colts fans one we now look back in hindsight well so great girl he had said he told us Jason that he actually believes that when we look at Andrew luck we're going to think about the things that he did not do he's going to be remembered for the things that he did not do versus the things that he did and that might sound harsh it might sound unfair at the moment but when you think about that it kind of makes all the sense in the world doesn't well I I do think it's Marcia and I do think it's unfair that if we step back for a second engine log your armored when he was come out of Stanford I had scouts in player personnel people telling me he was the group he was the best quarterback quarterback prospect since John Elway I mean I had several people independently say that to me at any comes in succeeding Peyton manning arguably the greatest quarterback in NFL history mean we can go over Brady debate would go around around but if you take manning is right there and what does he do he picks up and gets his team into the playoffs he has great seasons pro bowls he gets hurt his body his body lets him down and I would certainly phrases but England out his body was in the NFL okay and you got hurt and he still after missing season came back I played with a lacerated kidney the playoff game and we're gonna remember for what he didn't do I get it Nick that's the waste that's we sports works in this country it's all about winning championships if you don't and if you walk away your brand the bomb but I don't look at him that way I look at a guy who you know what he made good on his promise but his body did not allow him to continue making good on it but I will look at the guys a failure at all I don't think that there's a difference to say that will remember him more for the things that he didn't do verses what he did then saying he's going to be bomb or a boss or a failure I think it's just looking back at his career and saying what could have been right because he is so so talented he has all the tools it's just looking back and saying them you know what if things fell into place what if he was able to stay healthy what if if he played until he was thirty five thirty six here is Greg Doyle's answer from the NBA star the J. since questions about how long would be remembered you're not gonna be remembered for what he did he can remember for what he didn't do what he left on dark even called quick message what's going to happen and it's a damn shame because he's he deserves better that I realized what he did I realize we did the scene I realize all that but this is not a sports story it's a human story this is a human
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
Broncos trade up to select Missouri QB Lock
"Lock to over as Mizzou's QB one after five games of his freshman season. He started the next forty six leaving school with ninety nine career touchdown passes. A traditional pocket passer law has a big arm a big frame at six four to twenty five and his sneaky, good athlete. No one is more confident than him. Although we can get in trouble, trusting his arm too much. All right. So drew lock goes to the Broncos Johnny how long before he's the starter week one. He beats out he won't be. He won't beat out flacco, I don't think. But Joe flacco is having draft draft day remember to sort of case keenum case keenum goes the quarterbacks drafted he's at the Rams draft here golf the Redskins. Now the draft Wayne has this kind of Steve Bergische flacco last year they draft Lamar Jackson and other draft. Drew lock. Yeah. So I had said all along that the Broncos the Broncos staff spent a lot a lot of time with you lock senior bowl a lot of time with him. So I wasn't. I was surprised when I heard the Broncos were very very hot heavy after July, but they decided to trade down no fan number twenty and the they'd drew lock waiter, and they were able to get him back to back picks with don't riser. So they could move there by John Elway to get through locking the second round. And the thing is if if. Hits. But Johnny why get flacco in the first place. Why that's that's why I'm not a big fan of Joe flacco. I mean, I've said all along that if I if I'm running an offense I wanna quarterback that's going to be able to make some place when things break down because I know my offensive line isn't going to be able to to hold up every single every single play. I look our experiences are now. Is the Sean that's our experience. Now like we see that. I mean, everything is sort of jaded with the line. Play will ask you but chunk still make something's happening. If you haven't slot play. Well in Denver the record done done. So drew lock in is a pretty good f-. He's a great basketball player. In fact, he thought he was going to go play basketball in college. So drew locks and athlete that can make some things happen. A couple years ago. We saw that too degree against Texas in the academy. Sports and outdoors texts. He had a cut one of the best does I've ever seen any of these quarterbacks. Make he threw for a touchdown against Texas. And I still I could see standing outside right in line with what he threw it. And it was like sixty yards is beautiful parabolas. Right. Enhance observes Seaver running it for touchdowns. Like, whoa. I mean, it was nice. That's when you realize this guy's got some serious armed talent. Like Denver's great spot for
NBA Draft 2019: Latest 1st-Round Order, Predictions
"And ladies and gentlemen, we have a new mock draft out Mel kiper Jr's three point. Oh is here with us. And we are looking forward to the draft. Mel will join us in just about an hour to talk about the new mock draft. But there have been some changes in the draft specifically one less quarterback. Now going in the first round then in mel's two point oh mock draft. So we have four in the two point oh mock draft with Daniel Jones from Duke rounding out of the last pick of the draft to the patriots in the first round of thirty two. There are only three quarterbacks now in the first round, according to mel's latest mock. And obviously a retirement might be a big reason why and the quarterbacks have changed as well. Right. As far as where they're they're going. Well, Cuyler he still has Tyler going number one derozan. Well in his last draft Cuyler going number thirteen to the dolphins. So now and this draft he hasn't going number one. He had. Dwayne Haskins going number six at a giant Kyle Murray. Going number thirteen to the to the dolphins. Drew lock going fifteen to the Redskins and Daniel Jones going thirty two to the patriots. So as you mentioned Daniel Jones now out of the first round, according to the latest mock draft by Mel kiper, just three quarterbacks Murray number one. The main says Dwayne Haskins at number six, and you start to hear reports that the giants may go defense was six and then was seventeen go quarterback. But right now twain Haskins at six and then drew lock sitting there at number thirteen for the dolphins. Does the only three quarterbacks in this latest first round. Yeah. Going to be very interesting because we know what the giants listen one thing. Dave Gettleman has made very clear he does not feel beholden to tell us his plan. And so I don't feel overly beholden to believe. A lot of what we're hearing coming out of the giants can't because if you've got a guy who's basic messages trust me, I got this. Well, then we understand he doesn't feel like he has to tell us the truth. So as we hear these things. Coming out. We also understand this time of year is about deception to an extent it's trying to manipulate the draft order trying to manipulate the opinions of certain players. So that you can try and put yourself in the best position to get the guys you ultimately want. So it makes it difficult to try and read the tea leaves it is although I have to say on cattlemans behalf. He said all of last spring saquon Barkley is a generational talent with the second overall pick. And that's where he went. Look, I think we all agreed. There has to be a quarterback in the giants future. Whether it's at six or seventeen trade now Cleveland, but it would not surprise me in the least if Dave Gettleman waited until the second or third round to take a quarterback this Dave Gettleman, he created that created, but he he made the term a more of a vernacular in the NFL draft hog molly's when he was the GM of the Carolina Panthers. He loves the big guys to hog mollies. And let's be honest. This draft is going to be decided outside of Kyla Murray. More than anything else about the big defensive lineman in this draft. The hog Molly is on the defensive side of the ball. So depending on your draft grades for your quarterbacks you could take one of those at six and then a quarterback at seventeen it all depends again on your on your draft great. If twain Haskins is highest on the board and draft grades. You don't pass that up. If you have a Dwayne Haskins drew lock. And whatever other quarterback equal in grades. You know, maybe use that seventeen pick baby can trade it up somehow to get one of those guys as I said, this always comes down to grades. Do. You have a choice amongst grades. Are you close enough in quarterbacks where if you don't get one you try and get the other? But we'll see we'll see, you know, one of the biggest changes in from the last two this for Mel was they had the patriots taken Daniel Jones a quarterback, and this one I serve Smith junior the tight end from Alabama going, and that would not be shocking at all you have really three out of the top tight end Hopkinson the kid from Iowa teammate, Noah Fant, and then Smith junior all three likely to go in the first round a three first round tight end to on the same team come on. And what would that tell you as we saw? The patriots jump into the first round and take a running back and Sony Michelle at the end of that. And now to see in the next year three tight ends going. We've talked about this. However, you want to split it. Last year were Quinton Nelson. Went in the top ten in the draft as an offensive guard. We saw roquan Smith going the top ten as a middle linebacker. The middle of the field is worthy. NFL is being built right now. And other teams are starting to catch up to what the patriots have done for years. The way that we've seen teams export that specific area and three tight ends in the first round would hammer that home not denying that. They are guys that are certainly probably more talented than usual tight end groups. We're used to seeing but it's also about value. It's why you see running back taking it to overall by the giants last year. I mean, the other thing is I think they're more interior linemen in this first round then quarterbacks right? Like, a not tackles guards and centers. There are more of those according to males latest mock than there are actual quarterbacks being taken which would be very unusual. So the top five in this new draft that Mel kiper put out is Kylie Murray. Number one of the cardinals Nick both the D N number two to the forty Niners. Number three. Josh Allen the outside backing backer pass rusher going to the jet number four Cornyn Williams. To the raiders and number five guy making a pretty big jump. Devon white going to Tampa Bay at five in the last mock draft he was number eleven to the Bengals now in mel's draft. He is sitting at number five number six twain Haskins seven Joon Taylor. The offense attack from Florida going to Jacksonville sweat, the D N going to the lions at eight Sean, Gary the D N going into the bills from Michigan and TJ Hopkinson. The tight end going to the Broncos at number ten. Here's here's what I wanted to talk to Mel about and one of the issues that I have laid on me big fella with with this draft comes, you know, some some point and one of them is there are few prospects in new first round projection who are making their debuts because of their combine performances. There are four guys who have jumped into mel's first round who weren't out there before again based on the combine combine performances. I don't understand that. I don't I don't understand that. If you wanna say. You looked at the combine to go back and look at tape of them. But to say, they're combine performance jumped them up that doesn't compute to me. Well, I think that's I think that's the assumption though, is because of their performance you went back and look and that. That's fair. That's why I want to ask them. How did this? Make you go back and study them more. Because if you're just basing things off the combine I got a real issue with that. Yeah. I I don't think you would do that or teams. But at the same time, you look at the positions of the majority of the players that would be involved in that. And I think this could be true for teams as well. It's interior offense. It is right. Three interior offensive linemen Terry McLaren the wide receiver, but when it comes to interior offensive lineman. You wanna talk about an area where the scouting grossly lags behind to actually great and overall draft. It's a difficult area for a lot of people to see and understand because you don't have the benefit of a lot of stats. You don't have the benefit of even the combine members necessarily always translating to production. So when those guys go and they paying and they flag in the model somewhere for what they do at the combine. And then you go back and spend some more time looking at a guy like Lindstrom who wasn't going to be a big name. He wasn't like, you know, Gary bradberry from North Carolina State won the Remington award this year. Like that guy was a stud Boston College was a middling. Okay. ACC team this year. So Lindstrom wasn't getting the credit. He deserved even being as good as he is. So you go back now, and even these NFL teams, maybe we're late to the party on some of these guys all of a sudden start giving them an extra. That's why I want to ask I just wanna make sure with Mel that because I'm just reading from the combine performance, and again, let's put a name. To those you mentioned McLaren the wide receiver who is one of the others. Chris Lynch reminder, you just mentioned from Boston College now. Number twenty one to Seattle Eric McCoy interior linemen going number twenty two to Baltimore. Right and the Garrett bradberry. The Senator from North Carolina State who is you mentioned one the Remington award is the best center in the country number thirty one to the LA Rams where they have an aging center, and John John Sullivan. And that was that was one of the things have been saying for the Rams the last couple of years that dynasties been built on the interior. If you land a guy like that good, Lord or you winning out it is. So we'll see how that plays out. Now, the one thing that I find interesting he he has drew lock the third quarterback Mel dozen his latest mock going thirteen in Miami. I'm telling you don't take out Denver at ten in Cincinnati of eleven in play for quarterbacks. I mean. Yeah. Denver made the play for Joe flacco. But John Elway has messed this up a couple of times with all due respect. I mean, that's just outside of getting Peyton Manning. He has not figured out the quarterback spot there at ten they might be in play for quarterback. And you have Andy Dalton with his situation with the Bengals and his contract situation. I, you know, I think that there's a really good chance that they could be in play with a quarterback there, by the way, by the way, Mel kiper Jr's mock draft not the biggest item related to the draft this week. That will have news for you guys. What more on that coming up later? This week
Broncos trading Keenum to Redskins
"Case keenum to the Washington Redskins that one will officially happen next week as well bought they swapped late round picks, the split his salary keenum expendable in Denver. With of course, Joe flacco now in a Broncos uniform. So the Broncos really stopgap quarterbacks last year, it was case keenum this year's going to be Joe flacco course, Peyton Manning was not a stopgap when they got him in John Elway zero. That was a big time acquisition that helped the Broncos win a Super Bowl and get to another one. So the last couple of years though, they're trying to find some magic here with some guys off the scrap heap. I don't know how much flacco has left in the tank we'll find out in twenty nineteen. But case keenum to me is a good backup quarterback in the NFL. I guess he's an okay starter on a mediocre to bad team. Maybe, but I don't see case keenum the long-term answer in DC. They had to do some where you really going to go into the season with an injured Alex Smith and Colt McCoy and a rookie if they were to drop on. We'll talk more about the
Best of The Herd: Andrew Luck
"Then you go to Andrew luck and the colts. I wanna talk about Andrew luck. I'm I luck is the best quarterback. I've seen out of college. Since like, John Elway that doesn't mean he's going to be end up. The best depends on the support system the coach and all that talk to my audience about because because obviously Andrew luck you one. Of the better players took a roster a rebuilt roster with a battle line and no running game to the AFC championship. What separates luck his humility. I think he's one of those guys when you look at him. He's Andrew luck. Like, he he should be put on a pedestal. But that's not that's so far from the truth with Andrew he does not want to be treated any better than the last guy on the Ross now thank that. Humility piece is what draws everyone to his attention. And aside from that. I mean, he's a heck of a talent as you mentioned. He he has all the twos cerebral ability. I think he's his likeability is just through the roof the one area that I think Andrew has taken a step for this past is being able to adapt his game. You know early on. It was less dropback five seven, oh I wanted to notable deep all the time. And you know, we saw where Gat him he didn't he weren't able to finish some season. So I think he's matured in that level. And I think as some point Andrews gotta take about a horse and star raising his voice. Thank you. I this is my knock on Andrew. He always takes the blame. He is. He is almost to a fault. It's almost false humility. Yes, it is. Okay. Sometimes to call a guy out. So I was there for three years, and I never seen him scream at anyone for given up a sack dropping a catch. I get it. But all it takes is one time. You're not to do it all the time because Chokwe Gado he he didn't want coach. He wanted coaches to coach not just scream and holler. And do all that stuff is because sometimes it doesn't work Andrew's case all it takes is one time by Brady barks about twice a year. Oh, I've played against Brady and Brady will give it to the refs the offensive tackle the running back. The deepest guy. He screaming at everyone when it calls for it. And I think Andrew when he can it's not who he is. You know? So if you understand if Chris Ballard understands that's not who he is you go you go out and get offense Allama who can be Andrews kind of alter ego, and you go solve the
"john elway" Discussed on WEEI
"He's very excitable guy. And he he loved football. I couldn't wait to get out there and play that game six touchdown. Right. So I mean, he tore it up, and he probably wishes it could've lasted longer. But. To watch the expression on his face, and as he teared up, and he's raising Lombardi trophy over his head was just magical. And then I was blessed to be able to do it with John Elway. John Elway Super Bowl thirty two. This one's for John and him hoisting Lombardi trophy over there. I was there in the victory formation right behind John. And my head hurt me. I wanted to pick them up and lift him up over my head. I saw the expression on his face, and it was sheer joy. And just relieve raise tearing up while he's smiling and just so excited if he took a knee, and it took it seemed like it took an eternity for that last second right to tick off the clock. But I got to be part of an organization I Super Bowl. I mean, how cool is that? And we were loaded with talent to and then we all talked John the coming back took forever to talk them into collecting. We win again in a row three three. So what Cinderella story for John Elway unfair? I get it for a guy. Like John Elway to have the numbers in the ability in the wins in the Super Bowl appearances that we judge based on you gotta get a title. And it was but to get for him to get one. There were many of us who thought we're not gonna see it. He's he's he's like mid thirties. Right. How many mid thirty guys? How many chances are? You're gonna have people had written him a hard hard to believe that John Elway would be an underdog. Absolutely, absolutely. But they had lost a couple of Super Bowl. So the expectations were low. We felt like we had the best team in the NFL the year before we got upset by Jacksonville at Green Bay went on to win that Super Bowl against into New Orleans. But we felt we should have been in that game. And so we got kind of counted out despite a lot of the same players rotate that I yeah. Yeah. Yeah. We had to go on the road and play.
Best of The Herd: 01/16/2019
"I four or five years we were on this big thing for four or five years. I kept hearing this argument. Era. Jurors goat Brady second or Brady one. Rodgers to greatest all time apparently Joe Montana. John Elway never existed. Peyton Manning never existed. I always said. You do get it. Like, Tom Brady's got a room in his house full of trophies. They're not that stupid argument. And then I had something I said something during the middle of this year. And I said the it was perceived as a hot take I said the eight best quarterbacks I've ever seen in my life. It's not just about Super Bowls. This is about talent playoffs records your impact to the league. Your impact in the city. What did you overcome? What did you play with the eight best quarterbacks? I've seen again. There's a lot of different. It's Peyton Manning. Tom Brady Joe Montana. Terry bradshaw. John elway. Dan marino. Aikman and breeze. Now. People said you're just saying Troy Aikman. Oh leadership playing hurt toughness dominating a great division. When Washington giant in Dallas pout, those eight best quarterbacks, but the one that got people worked up is drew Brees was a hot take. Was way Rogers, and I said he's right on the outside right next to Brett farve and Steve Young and maybe Dan Fouts. And isn't it interesting? Mr. I'm crazy hot take. Right. I was whoa. You're and I said, no, let's talk about impact to a city. Whereas Aaron Rodgers was given a championship roster a championship level head coach and championship momentum in front office. Drew Brees was given the Cleveland Browns with a port Katrina bountygate. One guy was given the laughing stock of the league that had one playoff win in the history of the franchise. The other player was given arguably the most iconic franchises in the NFL with championship level players. Great momentum terrific front office. Very good head coach. So that's not close. Also. Let's go through four or five things. If drew Brees wins this weekend and goes to the Super Bowl, and they are favored and most people like the saints. If drew Brees get to the Super Bowl. And if he does against Kansas City or New England that again going to be a field goal game. If drew Brees wins the Super Bowl. And again, they're favored at home this weekend to get their Super Bowl titles against Aaron check breeze. NFL records, not close check breeze impact on a franchise. Drew Brees folks is the saints. To Aaron Rodgers is arguably not the Packers best quarterback ever impact on the franchise is not close leadership qualities. I don't know. One guy has former teammates constantly calling him out one guy is revered where three hundred pound offensive lineman. Literally do we have the tape? This is what happened when an offensive lineman Zack street retired recently for the past eight years I've played in front of the most prolific passer in NFL history. Drew Brees has been the single greatest

"That is unprofessional and should be unacceptable. And I'm tired of people making excuses and explaining away this by saying, well, it's just a business. No, they expect the players to go out there and put their health on the line and be team. I guy and do all this stuff and then lie to them and then bad mouth them after he's gone. He's already gone no need to continue to baton album. So I'm on. Mary's inside on this one. You know, it's one of the great lines ever is from the movie north Dallas forty every time. I say it's a game. You say it's a business. Every time I say, it's a business. You say it's a game. All right now, let's bring this to find bomb into the conversation because the college football playoff rankings came out last night. And there were no surprises. We basically knew where they were going to fall Michigan joining the top four after Alabama Clemson and Notre Dame Michigan moving in place of LSU into that top four then after that because Georgia, Oklahoma LSU and Washington state. I have the whole sheet here so Paul again, no surprises last night. But what was consequential? And if we go beyond the top four, for example, do you think that the placement of these big twelve teams Oklahoma sitting there may be poised to jump in does any of that matter? The only thing I think that matters is where LSU is. And you say what is hell is you have to do anything? They just got trucked twenty nine the nothing LSU is at number seven. I was shocked when I saw that. But I think what the committee.

"The NFL trade deadline came and went yesterday. We had some fireworks. Lots to talk about college football rankings are out Maryland has a little bit of a PR problem. And we'll get it all that is the show continues. Here this morning. I want to start off with the NFL. Trade with five deals yesterday. I remember back in the day, man. The NFL trade deadline. There wasn't much to it. The NFL didn't do a lot of trades. And then they moved it up back a couple of weeks a couple of years ago. And now, we get more action. And it's it's kinda exciting. It is probably not great for the players, but it is very exciting. So the first trade about two hours for the trade deadline yesterday. The Broncos traded wide receiver generes Thomas to the Texans. And and this kind of make sense. Look. I mean, the Broncos they really don't know what direction they're going in. They've got an asset here and the Texans had a need will fuller tours ACL a week ago that made this more urgent for the Texans will fuller doesn't get hurt. I don't think this trade gets made. But they basically they trade them for a fourth round pick. And then they swap seventh round pigs. And now the various Thomas gets to hang out with the Adra Hopkins and get the Shawn Watson throwing footballs. John Elway the Broncos general manager. Talk to the press yesterday. And he gave the reasons for shipping off. We were not hell bent on on trade in value. Was there that we felt the value? Was there we felt that it can help us that way as far as the draft next year. And and that we thought that with the young guys.

"Just like, I I think I was on vacation, but it was like two three weeks ago that John Elway said that he offered CAC an opportunity to be a Denver Bronco and pretty weird didn't want it. So this whole narrative of like, Colin Kaepernick sacrificed, everything because of what he believed in. I mean, I guess that's one way to look at it. The other way to look at it is he didn't wanna play football any longer because he had an opportunity. It sounds like Russia. What you said is true. And that Elway was offering himself. All right. Well, we'll let to get to today. I saw you had mayo co in here. Freddie and beach for any in between. Yes. On Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday. Good baseball. You had some good football straight.

"Past it So there's a comments from John Elway about. Colin, Kaepernick now as you, can imagine Twitter is a blaze with people tweeting about what John. Elway said, in fact I have my Twitter moments up here And I see a headline that says John Elway leaves. Out relevant, context when talking about Colin Kaepernick today Relevant context According to people, on Twitter Is the fact that this was in two thousand sixteen before Colin Kaepernick started protesting That is absolutely a fact and would it Would it have been worth mentioning would it have been worth John Elway talking, about, answering that kind of a question like well that was twenty sixteen sure that would have. Been a more Digestible piece of audio for the listening public But I don't think that he needs it Because even though I am someone that believes that Colin Kaepernick is. Qualified to have a job in the NFL and I do think that owners and. Executives for. The most part, or blackballing him I agree I believe that I have never believed that John Elway. Is one. Of them though And the reason why I never, believed I never believed that John Elway is one of the guys even though we know because of John Elway's political leanings that he and I believe you said as. Much he is not in favor of the kneeling during. The anthem now he has gone out of his way to command Brandon Marshall and others who have been more proactive with their approach and have done more than just kneel during the national anthem we. Know that John Elway where he lies on this issue I mean people wanted him to to run against John Hickenlooper. And people wanted him to get into the last gubernatorial race As a Republican so we know where he lies on that But you can you. Can hear it in what he said there More important I don't want to, say more important but when it comes to call and camper Nick the more important thing for John Elway is the fact that John Elway is somebody that feels like he, should always get. What he wants ever since he got Peyton Manning Ever since he got Peyton Manning John Elway has had this belief that everyone, should just. Wanna come play for the Denver Broncos, and and you should you should pay money out, of your own pocket to come play for the Denver Broncos that that is his inflated ego and that is his belief ever since he landed Peyton Manning those years ago Yes calling capper, Nick was offered a chance to come to the Denver Broncos for a cut John Elway doesn't care that. It was a pay cut maybe you care maybe calling cabernet cares John Elway doesn't John Elway as soon. As Colin Kaepernick, said he would not. Take. A pay. Cut to come to the Denver Broncos John Elway said you're dead to me Dunn's oh whatever phrase you want to use that's what John Elway said Colin Kaepernick John Elway holds. Grudges like a, sixteen year old girl That is what's what's going. On with this whole thing I don't believe that John Elway is one of the, executives that's intentionally keeping Colin Kaepernick out of the league I. Think he's intentionally keeping calling, Kabir Nick off of his team. Because he look this is. A guy. That went to Peyton, Manning and demanded he take cut If, pay if he can go to Peyton Manning in say take. A pay cut Why why should call and cabernet, turned, down a pay cut So. This has this, has very little to do with the protesting in my opinion I just think that John Elway road off calling capper Nick as soon as capper Nick didn't wanna come to the greatest sports franchise? That has ever grace the universe in John Elway's opinion And play, for an organization ran by the greatest not just quarterback but executive in the history, of sports and John Elway because that's what John Elway believes that he is so right wrong or indifferent It's not about the kneeling with John Elway it really isn't And I think that people characterizing it as that or that he's omitting the. Fact that it was in twenty sixteen before the protesting started I don't think that, that's a fair characterization because if you were here in Colorado you would know that the. Reason why John Elway doesn't want to sign. Calling Kabir Nick Primarily is because he told them no back in two thousand sixteen And one other thing that is absolutely true John Elway does not, like answering questions about Colin Kaepernick That's that's my second takeaway Two, eight. Six zero, zero four six if you, if you disagree with me do you think that John Elway will not bring in Colin Kaepernick as a, backup because of the protesting or do you agree with me that it's more because he said no to John Elway back in two thousand sixteen, and when you do that. You're, dead to number seven Two eight six zero zero. Four six so if not, calling camper Nick then who I have a list of potential. Backup quarterback options. For the Denver Broncos, and, I,.

"Now john elway hadn't been on the job as long as tim connelly's right now i acknowledge that but when peyton manning comes here i understand that john elway made a connection with them on a quarterback to quarterback level but john elway as an executive had very little experience the only experience that he really had was running a of owning a defunct rena football league team it's not like john elway was theo epstein of the nfl but yet he landed peyton manning and we gave john l we give john elway the bathroom because he did so much for the broncos in the state of colorado when he was a player but at that point when john elway landed peyton manning he had done nothing nothing to make the broncos significantly better other than in drafting von miller which my my five year old could have made that decision and i don't mean to demean john elway i'm just saying like it was kind of a no brainer pick once cam newton the discussion was varner cam newton would would you draft cam newton pass rusher or defensive tackle marcell dareus was the other choice there at two so credit to john elway for making the right decision but it wasn't like it was it was a difficult decision to make but he landed peyton manning anyway and the legend of john elway the general manager grew from there so.
