"And says he needs to be fixed? I doubt Russell use those exact words, but I'm not surprised he reached out. He has a friendship with Sean Payton dating to their interactions at Pro Bowl. Russell's Friends with your breeze. He's known Sean Payton through Drew Brees for a number of years. So I mean, I think if you had to rank which coaches he would want that Peyton would be number one, probably followed by Dan quin, but in the Broncos aren't going to hire John Payne based on Russell Wilton's Wilson's wishes. They just can't not after last season, as I said, it's got to be more about us, less about Russ. But they do need a coach that can help get him better and play like he did. It's kind of three of the four last games. But not surprised. Because he does know him and he was able to do it in a way that it's through a previous friendship. So not surprised. And when you look at the resume and what Sean Payton's done and the quarterback sees work with you and beyond breeze, that I could see why Russell would want to work with him. Troy, who's lying and who's not. That's what I got to figure out because I'm here on Mickey Loomis that's talking about two first round picks. I hear Sean Payton in mentor mid to late first round pick. I know that each person is going to look out for the best interests of their self. But who's lying and who's not? And do we trust the situation when it comes to Sean Payton, especially hearing that he's seeking ideal 20 to $25 million per year? For me, Troy, I'm out. It's like, do you want to coach football or you do you not? Are you going to come here and be the savior, look what John Elway has accomplished here, right? Look what John Fox Peyton Manning and everybody loves it here in Colorado. Do you want to come to this great state or not and be the head coach for the Denver Broncos? Because it's getting too much of the drama and too much of the theatrics behind the scene right now. When it comes to this team that I love. So tell me, please try it. This early morning as you sound like you're still sleeping. Who's lying? Who's not? Listen, they're playing poker. He'll make you a little really good friends. I mean, they work together for 15 years. They took vacations together. I mean, these two were close, close. So make you lomas is looking out for the saints Orlando. And he wants, he's going to ask for two first. The problem is there's not going to be two teams that will give him to first. Number one, and there's not going to be two teams in Sean Payton and my estimation is going to want to go to. For him to get to first, do it has to come from Carolina. And now that interviews push back, unfortunately, a member of the Carolina football club that chaperones is passed away a tragically. And so Peyton was supposed to interview with Carolina owner tepper tonight in New York. That's been pushed back. But that's a team you could ask for two first from. They're in the division. And they're like, if you're going to go there, then we're going to make this really painful for you. But if it's the Broncos, and let's say this fall this hypothetically, and Peyton says, that's the only team I'm going to go to. It's fox or the Broncos, then that's when Loomis has to make a decision. Does he want a first and maybe a third? To get this year or next, when does he want these picks? How many does he want? Because Peyton has more control than most coaches, whatever have that he has the leverage of Fox. So at some point, Loma says to make the best deal. And the pole playing poker, but I can't see a scenario when the Broncos would give him two once. Can I see him give him a first and a third? I could if he's the answer. For me, it would be almost irresponsible to give him two once. If you're Carolina, you'd almost expect that to be the price because you're in the division. Visitor Troy rank. So with all the reporting you're doing with all the people behind the scenes you're talking about. Who does this ownership group want? Who is their top choice? Yeah, I wish I had more clarity on that, not being in the room. I know that they came away with a good feeling with Sean Payton and Peyton was impressed by them. And he was interviewing them as much as they were interviewing him. In Orlando talks about that. If you want to come to Denver, the problem is he's got all the power in this situation. He's kind of Bill Parcells like here. Am I going to come to rescue your organization? I want certain things to fit me. And most coaches don't have luxury. But they were impressed with them, no doubt. You have to decide then if you're handing it over to Sean Payton, it's going to be 20 to 25 million a year, probably minimum 6 year contract. Are you comfortable with that? And you have to take a long-term view of that. And what his power would look like within the organization. If it's not him, Dan Quinn checks a lot of boxes, I don't know what they feel about. They have an interview, and they're going to be tonight in Dallas. And so we'll get a better idea in the interview D'amico Ryan yesterday. The issue becomes, if it's not either one, then what is it, David Shaw is a Jim Caldwell. They've leaned so heavily on experience from everyone I've talked to. It gets really dicey if it's not one of those two. They do like Peyton and I'm sure they're going to come away and press with Dan Quinn. And I still believe as I sit here today, that it will be one of those two. I wish I had a better feel because we have gone through this with Greg penner before. Troy, yesterday, I took to Twitter. I had to see you rub it in my face as a come on. Flipped his commitment from the university of Miami and went to see you. Just getting it from everywhere, chore. I thought when you were better than that. But I'll let it slide. My question to you is obviously we see what's going on at CU. But do we like when we hear coach prime talking about? I don't have time to build. And do we like the narrative that's already been created from the get go that, hey, what happens when another power 5 school or another school comes around to the fact of him leaving do you think that this is going to be sustainable and also end well for the CU buffs? Tough schedule came out yesterday as well. Yeah, that schedule is gnarly. I've had an open mind about all of this. I love the impact coach prime has had on the university on their national profiles and number one on their recruiting, but for me, I'm hoping they're bowl eligible and they win 5 games next year. They were terrible last year. We got to be honest. I'm going to see you alone and cover them at the height of their power from 89 to 93. I know what excellence looks like. They were, if not the best team in college football during those four years, they were in the conversation. Last year, they were in the conversation to be the worst team in division one. And deservedly so. So if he gets to where there are 5 wins with that schedule, it has a chance to go to a bull. I'd perfectly fine with that. You ask about the short term prognosis of this. There's no question. You can not be as a CU alum, thinking this is a 5 year plan. It's not. His son is a junior. And I would think he's got two years. I don't see him coming out as a junior into the trap. He might. He's really talented. So Durham centers the quarterback. I would think you've got a minimum of two. You hope for three, and then luckily you get four. But after two years, and if he goes, let's say, wins 5, and then in the second year wins 8, there's a very good chance an SEC team is going to go after him or an ACC team. It's going to go after him. And then that's going to be tough. I think it's going to be tough to keep him. But at least at that point, you would have, you know what it looks like. You'd have the program on better footing and you'd understand how to play the game. Before CU was not playing the game. Everyone else is playing checkers and just trying chess and to use playing checkers. If you want to be in this game, you got to be involved in the transfer portal. You have to make it accessible for kids to transfer. You have to be in the NIL game. And you have to have a coach that can recruit. You can't hope to have a coach who might be able to. You can't compete. And so yes, Orlando, it looks like it's probably a short term venture, but I will take it because it's done wonders for the university and put them back on the map and hopefully it shows them what it looks like if he were to exit in two to three years. All right, Troy, great stuff is always thank you. Troy rank a Denver 7 presented by rocks heating and air coming up next. Four down territory are the avalanche now fairly represented in the All-Star Game and is it a good thing or a bad thing? That Russell Wilson and Sean Payton are friends. That's next.

"Aren't those the qualities that we have been starving for? Those are great. For the last 7 years, aren't those the qualities that we were going over and over again when we're pointing out the flaws of Nathaniel Hackett when Jerry Rosberg took over and made such an immediate impression on all of us, wasn't it the idea that he brought accountability that he brought a certain authority. Those are the things that Broncos country that I want that I assume you want and you're worried that Sean Payton brings too much of it. Well, mom and Gordon Brown, day one didn't want to show up to OTAs, and it was an issue. Day one, before all of the other stuff, there was an issue that he's not with his teammates. When it comes to champagne, it's not just the arrogance. It's the arrogance coupled with how he left New Orleans. It's the arrogance coupled with, oh my goodness, gracious, my quarterback is retired and at the time he left New Orleans. Drew Bruce's retirement, I'm out as well. You already brought in teddy, not to sorry, Jameis. You paid Taysom Hill, right? And he was these unique quarterback and you wanted to keep him and you saw that you had the offensive mind for him. All I'm saying is when you realize that those days of the 500 5000 yards passing, the 25 plus touchdowns with a very low interception rate when you realize that those days were going to be very few and far between, you realize that the grass is not greener. Is it worth it? I truly believe that that's what it came down to for Sean Payton. After all the dust settled, the whole situation was getting ready to go down in New Orleans and Drew Brees was saying, I'm done. This is my last aurora. He realized hey, is it worth it? What I'm going to have to put in to try to have success with these guys. I've already had a couple 9 and 7 seasons with Drew Brees, and I know this guy, like the back of my hand. 7 and 9. 7 to 9 seasons. So I just believe what there was more of a little bit of there was a little more running away from the situation at hand that happened in New Orleans that people would like to admit. And now when you look at what the Broncos are going to have to give up as far as compensation, you're going to have to give up draft pick. You're going to have to make him one of the highest paid coaches in the National Football League, the second highest to Bill Belichick. The possibility of him becoming the GM, you could possibly go down the same road that happened out there. And you all see if Sean mcvay had stepped away this year after this season. And now it looks like he's not. But had he, and there was certainly plenty of smoke about the idea of him walking away. Then I would have totally agreed with that take if you wanted to say, man, Sean mcvay walked away. Going got tough, ran out of draft picks, salary cap issues. He ran away. He quit. I'd have gone with that with McVeigh because he'd only been there handful of years. Peyton was in New Orleans for 15 years, 16 if you count the urea to take off because of that stupid bounty gate thing. So you're talking about 16 years as head coach of the New Orleans Saints. To say that that's a heck of a career. That's a heck. And you know what? 16 years in one place 16 years as a head coach, 15 of them on the sidelines. To me, that speaks more to, yeah, I'm losing Drew Brees, but you know what? Also, I need to change. At this point in my life, after that amount of time, I think it's more about a change. And it made it easier knowing that breeze was leaving too, but so that's not quitting, not after daughter for you been in one place for 15, 16 years. It's not quitting. No. I don't think so. It's understanding where you're at with the situation. Back with this. But let me ask you, let me ask you this. Why didn't he, why didn't he go coach then? They wanted a coach. He wanted to coach this year. He went to coach in Miami. But why wasn't it a more of a conversation along the lines where, hey, I've done all that I could do here. Can you guys release me? Why did the saints still have his rights? Why did he walk away from football? If you still want to coach, Mike Shanahan did it for many, many years here, right? He got fired here, and then became the head coach out there with the commanders, right? Then we know the name that he used to be. John Fox, mutually agreed to part ways, right? Successful coach, right? I was with John Fox Adele first goes. You got a job. I got offered a job the same day. The same day that it came out that he was mutually pardon ways education job. Yes. Really? In del first goes and Jay Cutler's caller. I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm like, wow, okay. So you don't think that Sean Payton would have had those opportunities. So why was it I'm walking away from football and not, hey, you know what? I've done everything that I could do. You guys just got to release my rights or let's make it available for another team to come get me right now. Why did you step away for a little bit? Coming up. Good debate? Love to get your feedback. Ramosa dot com, Tex 9, 303-713-1043. Coming up. To me, it's a foregone conclusion. Nikola Jokić is going to win his third straight MVP. But does something else have to come with it? That's next.

"I was like, oh, wait, he not even working for the coach. So what does that say for the staff there, by the way, for one? Well, well, here's the thing he had been, I mean, he's worked as a consultant, but God knows what that means, right? So he had been there, everybody went to race on this one, right? Right. And understandably so. I understandably so sort of disorder. It is an understandable null hypothesis. But it's worth it to stop and think about it for a second before we roll out with the null hypothesis is actually being the conclusion. And so this is the thing to me. Anytime somebody in the NFL makes a ridiculous move as it relates to coaching, right? The first move for everybody is, but y'all can't hire a black man, right? Now, we could do that with just about literally every industry that there is if we so decided. If we wanted to do on that, right? Right. This was so absurd, though. That for me, it was going to take a while before I got around to the race part. I was too caught up on, you just made an external interim hire in the middle of the season and the reason to me that the jump to the race part is premature. What about the white man? Yes, this one white man got this boost up into this, John Fox is right there with two chips to the Super Bowl. He got to the Super Bowl with Jake delo and this is an important point. The interim is very often not a coordinator because making a position coach the interim helps with stability. And so now the offensive coordinator doesn't have to worry about calling timeouts and doesn't have to worry about challenges. Or whatever it is, right? John Fox is a senior defensive assistant. That is a prime person to be the interim coach. And you know John Fox would love to be a head coach again. I honestly don't know why he shouldn't be able to be oh, I forgot he had that thing. He did cost the bears for a little while. That was his last chance. Man, I forgot about that. I did two until this very moment. I would like to be a coach again. Gus Bradley, you know, he's defensive coordinator. He like damn dog is Jacksonville. What y'all expect out of me? They didn't promote him either. Like, there were able bodied white men right there. People were like, well, what about Reggie Wayne? If you go to get somebody with no experience. No, why are you getting somebody with no experience? Let's start there. What do you go into that locker room? And this is something you can ask Dominica, whoever about this. What do you tell those players in the locker room? Hey man, I know we got Sam Ellen good quarterback. I know we got a guy who was a high school head coach very recently and that coach about that, but go out there and fight every Sunday. What are you supposed to tell those guys? Because they still got to go out there and get hurt. You know what I mean? What are they sacrificing their bodies for? If this is if this is the plan. Oh, here's what you tell them. I in disguise don't lie. That is the only motivation that I in the sky don't lie.

"Good thing. How many times do you think you've been sacked in your career? Oh, I don't know. Just give me a guess and you're 15 years, roughly 15 years and I don't know, three, 400. Paula, you got the exact number? I got four 70 one for Matt Ryan. Four 71. Do you remember one of the four 71 more than any of the other? There was one in a Super Bowl. Oh. That was ouch. Thanks, Dan. Sorry, shit. Sorry about it. No, honestly, when I remember the most, I was a, and it probably doesn't even count as a sack. I was a rookie. We were playing in Carolina, oddly enough, John Fox, who's on our staff now, was the head coach and Carolina. And I was playing up there. I think it was maybe week three or four, and first drive of the game, I got smoked by Julius peppers right across the chin through a pick 6. It came back and it was one of those roughing the passer calls that you talked about earlier. It ended up coming back. But I remember being hit like that and being like, oh man. This is going to be a different day. Buckle up. So I should have asked, how many regular seasons sacks? That's what I should have. That should have the most painful physically. See, I got to work with my staff there, Matt. We were workshopping this and I brought up this Super Bowl. I'm with you, man. You're always good as the guys around you. And it feels like we're three, two, and one. I think in here, Matt. Hell, it's over 500. We'll take it. Yes. Does the Super Bowl come up in Indianapolis very often? Much as it might have in Atlanta when people would interview you? No, you know, I don't think it's, I guess, for lack of a better term, my baggage, not their baggage. You know, there's lots of lots of things that have gone on here that I wasn't aware of before too, that you're kind of coming into. But it all comes out when people are asking me to tell them how many sacks I have in my career and trying to go through that.

What is your reaction to the news not surprised. Urban meyer saved his credibility by doing this And i said i was going to be shocked if he was released. Given what he had put on tape You ask them an awful lot of. That's thirty four years of age. They hadn't played football. Skip if he's coming back to play the position that he played. I said okay. It's going to be a long shot. But the comeback and try to an entirely different position one that he's never ever played and try to make it in the nfl skip. That's the one thing we know like in college. Sometimes you give a guy a walk. Give guy scholarship. He might not ever contribute. And that's okay but because you only get forty six guys on game day the sponsor to valuable for you to have a guy when he can add you add. No value played no contribution and when he didn't play special teams. That's what that's the tale if a guy's not a starter a he plays no special teams. There's a greater chance that he's going to be released because you've got to bring some value. They're not keeping the thurs green tinyan that can't play special teams coach keeping the third string running back or wire receiver if he can't make any contributions little special teams. Our shocked that. Tim tebow on saturday night. Played no special teams not punt return not kick return. I'm not saying he's going to be to return a- but i'm saying he could have on the front line so i was surprised when he wasn't doing that. I'm like this is not a good sign. And then when they saw that i don't know urban urban would've lost all credibility. They talked about on every show. Everybody was talking about it. Everybody was tweeting about it. It was trending. And so i think in order for urban to save some credibility and maintain his his voice in that locker room. This was a decision that had to be made and jacksonville. I just hate that somewhat. Missed opportunity because urban gave a friend a former player of. Here's an opportunity that i don't believe he deserved someone else. Deserve that opportunity. But they didn't get it yet. I will remind you you have said. Every time we've ever discussed tim tebow he will make the roster because of urban. Meyer said it. Yesterday should any other would be cut off the block. Yes that. I didn't think he actually missed. I thought the other blocked that you show. That was worse because that was half hard. And that was i'm lost. I'm not sure where to where to turn my head right. Should i go into the second level and get the linebackers should i. And he just sorta halfheartedly touched the defensive end. Okay so i get that second block and yet you were on record from the start that urban meyer will make sure. He's on the road so i want to say i am shocked over this in that. I was wrong about this because i thought from the start. Urban would have a special under wraps cage for him that he would use him the way he did back to tim's freshman year. I was a long time ago. And he's now thirty four years of age and that would be back when he was nineteen years of age with chris. Leak is a starting quarterback. Tim was in a package of jump passes and wildcat packages where he would run with the ball on goal or short yardage and he scored a lot of touchdowns as a freshman and he made a lot of i down freshman. And that's the kind of role that i think. Rex ryan wanted to use him in in new york. And it never quite materialized with mark sanchez. They never could how to do it. Chris so that was the end of him so now. Tim's resume will show basically in twenty eleven when that team. Denver broncos one in four he was given a chance to sort of sink or swim. And i think john elway who had just taken over the franchise. John fox was the new head coach in place of josh mcdaniels. Who actually drafted tim. Tebow twenty fifth overall bottom a first round at one in four that next year after josh had been fired josh got himself fired over what happened in two thousand ten. And but i'm saying you. But john fox took over the eleven guy. So this is twenty eleven. Negga one and four. With kyle orton as the starting quarterback in his. They're heading to miami. I believe elway in fox sat back and said let's just get this over with. Let's throwing out there and give the fans who were screaming for tibo. What they want okay. And they went to miami and they pulled it out. He did not play very well until later. In the game late in regulation and overtime they pulled it out and won the game with the late field goal time and then here we went and you know what happened. They got on a roll. They led the league in rushing. Thanks to willis mcgahee. He and tvos ball handling and they ran. What tibo ran in college. They did a really nice job of switching midstream in here they went and he almost made the pro bowl that year but they won the division. Then they beat ben rothlisberger. Mike tomlin playoff game. He threw the past. Mara's thomas and that's it that's going to be his resume. Because then they went to new england for their second playoff game and got wiped off the face of the earth by the patriots. It was a big aaron hernandez game believe that was where they used. Aaron hernandez h. back. They tibo depot with him he lined up next to brady much of the night there. Hand the ball and flipping the ball and he ran them off the field. You remember got the you know what kicked out of him in that game. So that's going to be his resume now in pro football so this year. I thought that there's no way. And you echoed this that urban would even bring into camp and humiliate him or put him in position. I be humiliated unless he had already decided. I'm going to save a spot for him to be a designated score..

"Glory america or high. The chaos at cable airport is less chaotic. American troops have secured the perimeter. It is still desperate situation. Thousands of afghans are trying to get to the airport. American marines have established a perimeter. Six afghanis fell to their death from airplanes. Yesterday it's been confirmed by the new york times. The president's disastrous speech yesterday has been widely in everywhere pan. They wished to begin this hour by reviewing with you reaction to this. Beach here is senator. Tom cotton john fox news. When neil cavuto not long after it was given cut number one. That speech demonstrated a president who has dangerously disconnected from reality. You can put aside the question of the decision to withdraw from afghanistan. just focus on how. That decision has been executed over the last couple of weeks neil The president seem totally oblivious to the conditions on the ground. He act is this as if this withdrawal is going in orderly fashion when in fact we have hundreds if not thousands of americans stuck behind taliban lines who have no clear instructions on how to get to the airport and out of the country. Joe biden didn't say a word to them. Furthermore claimed that we would somehow can continue to conduct over the horizon terrorism operations as he called it with exquisite proficiency. I guess that's going to be exactly like he's conducted. This chaotic disorganized the lasko of evacuation for american citizens. I mean the president claimed that He wanted credit for the break to kill osama bin laden now he may have forgotten that ten years ago he was loudly and famously opposed to the mission to get bin laden yet. Surely he can see what's happening on the ground afghanistan right now which is the direct consequence of his ilk disorganized decision to withdraw from

What was the sort of key turning point for both of you is that brought you to becoming a producer. What made you realize. This is what i wanna do. And this is how. I'm going to go about doing it for me. My dad on the theater and it was the first twin in colorado. That was in our neighbor but and i see three hundred movies a year i to go to those blind bidding screaming which was so exciting because in colorado at that time you had to show the exhibitor of the movie before they had before they had to agree to play. They had the ability to make the choice. It makes the choice. And so i got to go all those screenings so i got to see everything and i got to see them early and i got to work around the mechanics of the theater. Which was selling popcorn and making sure people did sneak in and had a ticket kind of even more than that. It was as a kid in colorado watching movie stars and and totally being enamored with hollywood and film. And so for me. It was something i always wanted to do. And when i would see a movie i would always think about. How can i make this better. How can i make this movie different. Or what did i really like about this movie. What was it that so inspired me. Why did i want to see it again. You know you just haven't experienced. I believe early in life with film that creates this romantic love affair with the media. Was there a specific. And then i want to go over to john. You're both john's only go over to to john fox in a second but I want to ask. Is there or there a specific film that you can say that had that sort of i know what would make this better like i. I can think of that. I love that story or that anecdote. Because i think so many of us have those where we think like you know would have been perfect but i loved it. If there's one that comes to mind that you saw early on in the theater that that you felt like or you can recall as like. I had this vision of how i could improve it. And it inspired me to be filmmaking. Well it funny thing happened to me. As i started making movies and then i said you know what i want to go back and remake certain movies. I loved the answer. Your question is yeah. I went back and i remain dr doolittle but i made with eddie murphy right and as the technology of the time and i made it modern day and you know we spend like you know a sequel out of bed and kind of lived on and on and on i did. It was flight of the phoenix which was a movie that i loved. I loved the idea that i love. Airplanes have always loved airplanes and aviation and flight. So remade that and i grew up watching all the walter matthau jack lemmon movies. I'm fortune cookie odd. So it's like. I wanna work with those guys now. By the time. I got to tell those guys were like in their late seventies right so i had to make grumpy old men grumpy old men to and then i made see and and and and so. I made a series of movies disease guys. I just watched the theorems younger so kind of that was my way of doing. It must've been a really cool experience to have grown up on the fortune cookie. Which is amazing movie. I agree and be like. I'm going to ask the legacy with these guys. I'm going to be part of it. That's like a dream. Come true right again remember growing up in colorado and it felt like hollywood and and and and those movie stars were ten thousand miles away but it felt like it was the most wonderful possible medium. Anybody could ever hope responded to work. And so you know it. Always resonated with me and john john fox. I want to jump over to you and asks sort of similarly. Were the early. Inspirations what made you think producing is the way what would clicked you know for me. There was never any other there was no there was no other dream. There's no other goal. I knew from a really really young age that i wanted to make movies. At that point. I did know producer writer director. I just wanted to be part of it. You know i. It didn't matter it just didn't matter to me you know It movies were really my entire life. And i mean that. I used to have a theater in my hometown. I had a bike a bike. This is back when you could be ten. Eleven years old and your parents are like all right. We'll see you see as yeah and i would bike About three or four miles to the next town over. That had the head of twin screened theater and i would see all my movies there on the weekends and double features back when they're you know they had w and you know i mean i remember i i mean i remember the double features i remember i remember sitting there through romancing the stone. Buckle banzai the double feature in like seeing it twice in a row know the double feature for me. There was never any. There was the original leprechaun movie and notices very random but the original leprechaun movie. I believe aniston was shot. Yeah it's shot in my hometown. And i remember biking over there. I was probably twelve or thirteen. And i just snuck onto the set. I only know what the hell is doing there. I just wanted to absorb what was going on. You know and and they nobody kicked me out. I just kind of hung out there all night watching you know and i just wanted i just wanted to desperately to be a part of it and that's never changed you know producing i i i start. I began as a studio executives at dreamworks and and really the movies the movies that defined my tastes were very clearly amblin. Yeah amblin movies. I mean back to the future. Young sherlock holmes young sherlock holmes. It doesn't get its do by the way young. Sherlock holmes was so far ahead of its time. It was the tone and world of a harry potter. Long before harry potter was even you know as even a kernel of stumping in. Jk rowlings mind. You know it. was it ito. Those early amblin films were just. They were like scripture to me so to give to work for steven for almost a decade. I was executive at dreamworks. You know and then. I slid over to the producing track. When.

All i want to be as the flash all wouldn't be as the flash in the boom days lightning and he gets to become flash. Well all i wanted was to be in comics. All i wanted was being comic throwing up all was to be comic somehow income and now i you know that i am so. That's what we had in common. We're both boys who made the dream. Come true and once i got those two tenterhooks into wall and once i sort of understood those things about him then. It just became so easy right third character. Did that come right away or did did it take a little bit of writing the figure that out. I ain't came a little. I think it came a little the fan boy thing i think a little later the but in even born to run his relationship with with with uncle ira is very much my relationship with my grandfather and the fact that he and i really couldn't communicate because because my when my mother passed away we really couldn't communicate and same with wally in iran. Irs and. that's where that spun from. So it's like. I said that's us use. What's in your life if you can't do it without making it all mary sue. Did you find a dante. Because he was the first psychic to make the promise come good. Could you didn't happen simply. You're just out there a exactly. That's really it out there in the white house What does my notes here Took speed force me. You asked me a question. I will go on for twenty minutes. So i don't here. There's no excuse for you to not have an extra all right. I would ask you one of my favorite story. Lines was the walter west story line. The alternate version of. Wally did that come from again. We were looking for a way to knock. The readers off depends brian. I both very much out like writing monthly comics and not monthly comics where it's a defined six issue story arc or or whatever. There's nothing wrong with that now. And that's most common done these days. You know you need to do one specific story and the readers from the get go. It's going to be four parts. Maybe six parts or whatever and that's fine but there's some magic to not being constrained by that there's some magic of being able to let a story breathe and take whatever time it naturally needs because then you can surprise readers and they can't i have always said with return to bury alum one of the reasons it hit hard more successful is that you didn't know which she was going to end it. You didn't so if you know it's gonna end issue seventy nine and you're reading issue seventy seven. It's easier for you to sort of think ahead and start to predict what's going to happen next and we all know that right. We all know who. There's fifteen minutes left in the movie. We start thinking about okay. Here's you're gonna wrap it up but without that book and obvious then you don't know it's it's so just really everything becomes unpredictable and same with walter west. We were looking for waited. Do something of some links that would make all unpredictable and clearly. I like replacing wally an awful lot as you can tell him. The series goes on on fox. Yeah because you did you. Did you created john. Fox was at the anniversary. It's yeah that character to that. I mean he. On what dc. One million and all that other. Yeah cool him. Go on. But i do love that misery of walter west. Because that yeah. That's not a lot of books. Yeah yeah it was kind of older. Seem used in other books. And i couldn't tell the other writers what the secret of walter west was all i can tell them was. Here's how you need right now. In terms of how you approach him and his voice. But i couldn't. I couldn't tell anybody this week given a big secret. Oh so they did so no one else. No other writer new. Okay now. Just me brian. Wow that's pretty needs to be able to work head in hand with the editor because they Sometimes things come by all that must've been editorial mandate. Yeah no brian. I always thought like one like one brain shared between two people. We always thought like we always call each other up to knock stories back ideas back and forth and it got to a point where the gods on truth got to a point where sometimes when i got stuck in a plot point all i would have to do is pick up the phone and start. Dial it wouldn't even have to talk to brian. just the very active Starting to talk to. Brian and making the phone call was enough to jog something loose in my memory so that was good And so he you know he. He was the editor four. Why most of the john fox stuff right and then about about halfway through that. I think that's When i convinced him to go freelance because he was his kids were growing up in new york. That means you're an hour and a half on the train each way every if you're lucky every day and they'd hours an office and you know the wants to see his kids grow up and brian good writer and brian and i were thinking very much along the same lines and i wanted to be able to have more time to do more stuff so inviting him to just join me. As the co writer. The book was completely natural at speaking at that point heating and inserting up. Tim going to think polka team on is editor for a while. He found us. Paul ryan god bless him and then after that. Maybe joey cavalieri. I'm trying to remember. But that's you know we don't. We always had good luck with editors when they were never intrusive once. Yeah that's that's literally the run villes really natural like everybody was just a well oiled machine. I think that's why the run really stands out thank you. Oh yeah. Like paul ryan yeah. He's polish yes. Oh yeah you're talking about family and then After a while when you came back back. I think You introduce walis family. Where did that come from. That was well. I mean you know. The kid looks done stuff with his mom and dad And made them distinct and interesting characters and he doesn't stuff with chonkin and other sporting characters he had mine memory of this. And i could be wrong but my memory of this was that when he left the book and gave it to me he asked if he could take some of these characters like mason trowbridge and chunk over with him to wonder so that's why they knew his his supporting characters. Didn't show up very much in my first couple years just because they were bills characters and i thought he was going to do something with them and that was fine With mom and dad you know he's a small town kit and so it just the i wanted to get back to the family aspect. They also love the fact that walsh parents aren't dead. I love the fact that he's not motivated motivated by orphaned revenge. Which is terrible terrible motivation to us. Because it's overused. So i mean that's that's where the family came from the big thing. I always say it's like even berry back in the day..

Change for research is concerned about good and violence in the us. The many say it's not enough. President biden has suggested doubling that twenty five million each year but after twenty year gap. There's a lot of ground to cover. We really thought twenty five million dollars. Each year fall short of federal funding in terms of other fields of public health. I mean by this.

Violence has a lot of catching up to do and plenty of research is ready to take up. The challenge. is lisa again. We've under studied firearm violence. And we've done it in such a way. That has not allowed to see possibilities where there might be so. I think it opens up some really possibly impactful wave to be thinking about reducing risk. That could have really soon consequences instead of the really long term work. that also needs to be done. That's really exciting to me.

Now he's got a legacy with johnny that berry had a psychic who was tied to him through marriage busey related. Yes what here's granta right in. Which is the direct repercussion of berry. Retiring in the future for the record store line. I still to this day. Not white thrilled about right. And i think that's important to bring about bark right. So bart allen was raised in third century The grandson of barry allen his father. He's his his father was don don. Don don l. not dawn the girl the tornado. Toolkit them later so we all talked about the last time you know at the end of his the first volume of the flash between the time of that volume ending act right when the volume and he's going into the berry goes with thirty first century. The live with iras who turned out his actually from the thirty first century is a whole weird thing but like this is where again is such an such a physical thing. Dt thing they ran with it they kept it going. This fact that berry wind to the future with with his not dead wife anymore. Because she'd been crepe point. I've thought about that. Could i mean think about how many times that we've seen the before something. That's there's a. That was weird and then you know it goes. We're going to forget that. All happened marvel goes. That was weird. Let's keep it going. Let's let's say before. He came back for from infinite crisis. This say that him in him and irish actually had twins in in those in the thirty first entry ended up going out and one has has a son that becomes his grandson bart allen. The other one has a becomes excess. Enjoy sleep legion of superheroes like let's keep it going and i'm like put the fuck you know. At some point. I resign comeback from the thirty. First it's the kept it going for the longest time until again new for the two rich. Everything were they kept going. I think makes nudity to even worse when you think about. It's like you guys had the you guys kept this going. The weirdness going and it and honestly it all made sense. Okay maybe not the fact that irish died and they pulled her body into the river century. Her her the century put it into that. Didn't make sense. But from that point on i tell you the foundation Telephone time travel. Also yes let's that makes more sense. Yeah what you do but it does. And so you. You have into ninety one. I matter of fact. Irish shows up. Because back i back in because to studying all the stuff up so during the The return of barry allen plot. The way that wally finds out that earbuds thorn is he finds the journal that or the book that a irish would eventually write a book about she. He finds the book and he finds that it was in possession of this person who buried figured out his bought thon but in there he also realizes that is written by his aunt. Iris which he realizes that wait. She's dead maybe she's not dead and that's we start putting things together so that's setting up for later on eire's than coming back into the present day because she was trying to save her grandson bar down because bart allen again was born Warrant to one of one of barry's where varies twins He has the speed force but his connection to the speed force was a was messed up and so he was a seller a celebrating growth so like age to law. He was ten things like that. They basically had raised him in an vr chamber. So he is literally your example of a kid who was raised on video games for lack of a better word and so she helps him escape from earth. Gov comes back and she needs wally to help. Stop his this abrupt connection to the speed force. So he does do that. And that's how you get bart and now also iris living in the same time as well. I mean no one no one. No one's blinking. Right point second cousin from the feature and it sounds fucking crazy customer saying the record and it is it. Sounds jumbled sounds confusing. But i swear to god if you read the actual mark waid run. You're gonna go. that makes sense. I'm okay with that because again. What happened when you give a writer the room to tell the story they planning around the tell you know so as you have good not going. I was just saying and it's wild because as we're talking about this in ninety two ninety three these concepts are still not just alive day here thriving like the new the new issue. The flash is while he is conscious jumping through time and different caesar's which guarantee will deal with a disturbance in the speed force in the last part of the issue with 'em he says he's i guess kind of communication with barry beck outside the multi berry says he says oh no way 'cause this implant or the future future have you know i'm in spotty And it's not it's the weirdest starting here. This is patients here. You wonder how the flash on tv too of the weird shit you get to hear us on reviews shrug and say that. This is where it starts. We haven't even talked about my favorite part of this run which is my favorite flash of all time. John fox baby. I'm the only one. Everyone got been riley john fox fan. I'm just that much glutton for no one cares but now there's a period in here. Where just like barry allen while gets tracked in the future and it ends up That john fox flash from the future comes back and takes his. And when i was ninety six so i'm eleven years old. The idea that. I could keep reading this here. Wally west flash book and then all of a sudden the protagonist is fucking gone. And this wasn't like me reading age of apocalypse the whole line ship. No this is john. Fox's now the plot it's like the end of this run. They started next. Run with walter. West the alternate flash like when they put him in jail. Because this is serious.

That was the Tebow throats at the various Thomas and write down the right sideline. Damn! The next year we go 13 and three Okay, Then we go 13 and three 12 and four Wait. I smell Peyton there. Don't you smell Peyton? I smell paint me and 13 30. That's mostly Peyton Manning. And you know what he did? He got out the way. He got out the way so Peyton Manning can operate 7 19 is the win percentage of John Fox while he was here with the Denver Broncos. He went 46 18. 46 in 18. I want to say that again. And so With that, you know that he got out the way on was integral and getting Peyton Manning, just assigned here. Listen, I remember Armen. We have people camped out over it. Centennial Airport and I remember I had a couple of phone calls from people who were in and around the Cherry Creek Country Club. When Peyton Manning came here for his visit that told us that what where he Woz listen, I remember I was I was across the street over at ESPN, working with our boy Bless Shapiro and If you remember it was breaking news on TV. They had the helicopters that were showing the private jet landing at Centennial and him getting into a car. A big deal. It was a huge deal that mask it is so we got Peyton Manning. Okay, so Peyton Manning. One year of Gary Kubiak, right one year with Gary Kubiak schools was only here two years, huh? So we got paid Manning for five years. Hey. How many draft picks would you give up? For a 12 and four season all of them. None of you would you have a problem? But if somebody gets 12 and four told him Forest what draft pick? Would you give up? Would you give up the first round draft pick? Yeah, to go 12 and four Would you give up a draft pick to go? Would you give a first round draft pick to go? 13 and three, huh? Would you give a draft pick to go? 13 and three? Okay, That's three. First round is that you just gave away. Okay? That's the impact that I believe that Aaron Rodgers has on this franchise. He had the Peyton Manning effect, which is, by the way, the reason why he's not going to be, But I keep hearing this conversation about his old No, I don't think he's old. We need to build our own guy in how he's going to be the M V. P. He C M V P of the league this year, But he's old and we can't have an old quarterback again. How we celebrate that. 23 just checking. So so I just want to ask the audience. Maybe maybe I am off my rocker today. Maybe I'm off my rocker. OK, but I do want to ask the audience today. If you could guarantee yourself 12 and four 13 and 3 13 and three Over three years. Would you give up three first round draft picks for that? 56690 is the text line. You can call us at three or 3713 85 85. I just need to hear because you know what? Maybe I'm off my rocker. But if you're telling me if you're telling me That this is what comes with bringing a guy into your franchise. We can't say that. That's the case with Shawn Watson. We don't know that. We know this history with Aaron Rodgers. So the ESPN, by the way, put together the potential trades for dish on Watson if he were to come to the Broncos. Did you see the breakdown of what they said to first two seconds? So the ninth and 40th overall picks in 2021. 2020 two's first round pick 2020 three's second round pick. Wide receiver Tim Patrick and quarterback Drew luck. The Texans, then send their 2022 4th round pick. To who? Kouf. Go to Denver. Go to Denver with Shawn Watson. Okay? You know, I like that deal. Because of the Shang Watson's age. That could be your quarterback for a decade. I hear you man for a decade, and you know what? I would love to have that Sean watching as one B But if you're telling me right now to go against this team The Kansas City Chiefs. Time, though, if you could, if you could leverage it if you can leverage it. This is certainly what you want to do This. You just don't get these kind of just don't understand, But here's the question to you out right now. I have to call this guy. So so in the football, just say five years out of okay, So say you get five years years And you know my homes is gonna be over there in Kansas City for the next 10 0 A F C West so downright. We're talking For the next 10. He's down. We get down there. So Aaron Rodgers okay, seven years, So So it's gonna What if it's just like what we just did with Peyton Manning? It's five great years, then five of the worst years we've seen incredible great year You kicked me. We had two Super Bowl trips, and we should have had another one. If the ball doesn't go over remorse, head Are you kidding me? That's 33 trips to the Super Bowl, bro. You gonna argue with that? I'm not arguing that question. What trip to the Super Bowl is worth how many first round draft picks. Let's just say one suitable wind is worth How many, Uh Uh, one Super Bowl win is worth How many First round draft pick three. That's how great it is. Do you remember how you felt, man when we want him about 50? 0? My goodness. Do you remember? Oh, I remember every one of the Super Bowl victories. How I felt Who Who would have taken that bag? I don't know any Bronco fan that would have taken that back for a continued development of a guy that wouldn't get you that well, in the reason that I bring up the Shawn Watson is because I do think the Shawn Watson is a quarterback who could get us to the Super Bowl. But here's what I know. Well, I also think he could be here for 10 years. We don't know. We don't know what his We don't know what his leadership ability is in the grand scheme of things. We know who Aaron Rodgers is. Matched him up with this defense. This band, but don't break defense. Offer, do you, man? I'm just let me just ask you something. Okay. You know what? It makes the most sense to me. Okay. On the other side. I want you to tell me truthfully. On the other side truthfully. That you think Aaron Rodgers is not going to be a green Bay Packer next year.

Let you know how long it's been since the Broncos won 50. Yeah. Five years five years ago five years ago. I feel like that was that long ago, But five years I told you that franchise was gonna win. The Super Bowl, you know, and You know, there's some franchises that have never want to the bowls. You know, we fly in and around here in Denver like it's no big deal. It's like I said about Elway's. It's like it's like I said, about always, 10 years. If you said in a 10 year run, you were gonna go to the Super Bowl twice, win one and also have some dark times. Would you take that? Yeah, but, you know, I think what people want is a crescendo. They wanna slow bill to the top of the chart. You know what I'm saying?

If you were somebody who obviously did not want met Maggie and Ryan Pace retained, but You said, you know what? I'm going to keep an open mind. I'm going to listen to what the chairman George McCaskey and the president and CEO Ted Phillips has to say. Let me tell you bad news. You're not going to be convinced. I know. GD asked a question directly of George about finances or lack thereof. I guess loss of revenue because of covert and if that played a role In the decision and keeping everybody horse George for what it's Worth said it absolutely did not play a role and retaining Ryan Pace of man Nagy. Apparently they were asked about extensions There have not been contract extensions talked about and Miller said that Ted Phillips jumped in while George was fumbling around George didn't he was kind of like he was sidestepping, and then Ted Phillips jumped in and said, I could add to that The extensions will come when the winning comes on. That has not been talking about that. I can answer the question since George doesn't want to I'll answer the question. Yeah, on dead Phillips has he was asked about at this 0.6 years in, you know, Shouldn't there be more success with Ryan Pace, he said. If you break up, Ryan paces tenure into two separate categories the first three years when he was with John Fox, and the second three years with Matt Naked, you can see that there's been market improvement. He attributes that to the trust Ryan Pace has with Matt Maggie. All right, well, they definitely have won more games. And then Aguilar that the Fox I can't argue with that. I didn't think they were gonna badge of the Fox on this on this particular day before the Fox did say they didn't name him by name, Justin badgered. He just He broke up Brian Paces 10 Year into three in 2 to 3 Year period. They don't speak of John Fox up there anymore. It's funny when he first got there. They were said all the cock of the walk and waiting to see how he's going to turn this franchise. John Fox is the savior. He knows how to fix a French. By the way, his name. Maybe he knew what the hell he was doing. Because when they called that Mitch Travis Keys, Damon, he put his arms like, Wait a minute. What the hell just happened? Don't you mean Watson may add? Maybe he was the one that truly knew. What the hell was going on? Good Lord. All right, We're 40 minutes and we still haven't got the patient and negative be excruciating. This is the last one mark part Potash. Just press Ted Phillips. I'm Trying to clarify one exactly Ryan Pace and met Meg you're signed through. He's declining to answer that you want to you want answered, they respect you will need to. We can speculate on that right? Doesn't nag you have one more year and paces too. Is that right? Well, we don't know where they won't comment on whether not right how long Ryan Pace is signed through. Or maybe it's the other way around. I don't even know I couldn't does it really matter? I mean, I mean, can you not say when your head coaches signed through officially 3123323776 Calvin's on the South side? What's up, Calvin? It was going on, gentlemen, and I just want to say one thing, man. Status is usually like York. You said, I mean, cut on the same paradigm. Got a glass scrap Some man and my granddaughter. Raised me. My daughter raised the right In fact, you know what To be truthful with you. Spin issues was like my glass eye was gonna be a pack of fan because they always told me to do what's right. And I'm the best Francis 17 17 85 when they won and we got to see the same traditional Bs, and they just rip off the fans like, what can you do? It's like just like it's like a joke on top of the job. I like y'all skip man. Maybe I need to put that on a live twitter instagram because it couldn't get any better man could do that. Thanks, Calvin. We appreciate it. But Cartman chair I think we can actually get him looking a little bit like well. Ryan and fairness. Sylvie does the best pace at the station. Actually, I'm sort of just doing Sylvie's in person. I'm like Impersonating me in person, you know? Yeah. Sylvie does a pretty good pace. Sylvie's upset. Yeah, he's hot. He why we all are. I think to a certain degree, if you if you understood and you could read the tea leaves, you knew nothing was gonna happen. And the more you clamored Memorial pounded the table, the more George McCaskey and Ted Phillips you're gonna ignore what's the noise that's being held out there. There's a number of different factors that would you. No, it's not just money is a lot to do with the Bears. Since 2000 again, I'll reiterate what we were talking about during cross talk, you think? Oh, you guys are being too hard on this. And that and You know what are your demands As a fan of this franchise, Do you demand that they look something Maura like The Green Bay Packers, the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Seattle Seahawks, the New England Patriots, Um I mean, I'm forgetting somebody in there over since 2000 trying Remember who the second winning his team is. It goes New England and then I think it's Pittsburgh and then and then Green Bay. The Bears of 16. You want him to be smack dab in the middle since 2000 the Bears are 1 65 and 1 71. That is the 16th best winning percentage halfway home. You want him to be halfway?.

He was one of the guys who won the first round. Michael Thomas was a guy you're grabbing now. Have you changed your outlook on the upper management situation? Where really girl back? I think if they everybody doesn't come back now. I'm sorry. What I say they're all back. Naggy and pace will be back. True. Risky. I have no idea. I have no idea of Mitch wants to come back after what he's gone through this year, Too risky is back. You know, I go back and forth at this moment. I don't think he is and I'm not sure what type of game he has to have today. Work. Look all right. Yeah, Tomorrow. I said, get it over with today. Just get another way. We'll be nice because tomorrow couldn't play. But I'm not sure what what kind of game He's gonna have to have tomorrow to be able to secure a future with the Bears. We're not gonna win it. This was a gift to get here. And I just hope it shows management, upper upper management that some things the last that happen. I hold out Hope stranger things have happened. The line was 10.5 earlier in the week I look this morning It was 10. So I came down a half a point. So we'll see the bears bears getting 10 of your bears fan. Take the 10 points sitting, enjoy see what happens if they can keep the game within 10 under Santo's kicks a field goal late and they cut it cut it there somebody we can rely on. It's just one of the only one that we can really rely on gaming came out and think about it. He was here the he was here in the John Fox era that he was gone and then you know you have a whole kicker situation a couple years ago, so we rebuild the team around the kicker Cairo Santos for 27 consecutive field goal. A new Bears record broke the record of them one that kicker that everybody loves Robbie Gold, who missed the last game of the season for the Niners. I'm pretty sure because he had Koven um so, yeah, it's weird, Weird season it. It's just nice to be here on January, 9th. We're into the new seat in the new year, and I know there's a lot of people are already saying Nothing's changed. People really think that when you know when the clock struck midnight and 2020 was gone, that everything was going to change. It's going to be this way supposed to be there for your ma right now. Those must be that would be this way tonight. It was just gonna line up exactly with the strike Midnight. Yeah, it's gonna be this way till February or march. We'll get to your calls. 31233237761 thing I wanted to mention because we've not mentioned don't think other The air because as soon as Jeff Miller's white sac's weekly was over at, like, not 10, 59. He walks into the studio and he goes counts. Warbird just signed a deal with the Washington Nationals. One year 10 million Now. It would've been nice for him to have that he could have talked about it, cause it's baseball talk. We'll discuss it too. We're gonna talk about a baseball and bulls and a lot of other things after 12 o'clock, But if you want to talk about Kyle Schwarber Going to the Washington Nationals. Lot of White Sox fans thought You know what? Not a bad deal. Bring him here. He could be your d h. I was to be alternating or something like that into it, were you I wasn't originally as we got further and further along, and I saw them bring Adam Eaton and I'm saying, you know, Why not? For whatever I want to know if you make 10 million, but, um, I should bring him over. I mean, you know, guaranteed rate is a place where you can hit home runs. And the White Sox apparently can't get enough home run hitters because they get a bunch so it would have been nice to see. But now he'll be hitting him out for the Washington Nationals. We haven't shot a cruise. I'd rather have take the shot. A cruise obviously swore was off the table now, so it doesn't matter. But the possibility crews because in years past, it seems like we have literally pun intended. Taking swings at different th is and they have not turned out and he's killed the White Sox. He has absolutely killed us so well. The Sox embarrassing stains 3123323776. We'll hear from now you will hear from Robiskie right now. We'll hear from Ryan out in Skokie. Hello, Ryan. Ryan. Are you guys doing well? My question is why is it every year? No matter what comes around the halfway time, the Bears look like the same exact product, no matter who the coaches who like that. Is it? Is it the Kool Aid the Gatorade or just upper management, Making these calls? I thought they hired people to actually when scenes Well in the sea. The funny thing is, it is also because they still have not found that guy that quarterback there's going to be the foundation of a team that's going to be here for a long, long time. They thought it was gonna be a travesty released. Ryan Pace thought it was going to be him. The fans haven't haven't granted. Let's go earlier that we thought color was Rex Grossman, right all the way right? So none of these guys really stuck around and we're what they thought they were going to be. But I think in the NFL nowadays you can grab a quarterback for a couple years. Have a nice little run for 45 years. And then go somewhere else. Everyone's worried about getting the franchise quarterback and be nice just to get a quarterback. They could win with the talent. You have assistant at the time, but yeah, and then have them compete. Who's Who's someone you'd like to see brought in. Anyone that could last more than a half a season and you do well behind them. Yeah, do well behind team for Watson, then down to the Texans would just show the whole bears roster down there for the song. Not the whole just apple Bloom Hey, is lows. They throw what in there, too. I'll take a what? But think about you throw a screen pass every year on third and one by now, like the playbook isn't mad. And like all this, the bears play black. Hit the button. You know who's going to get the ball? Sure, sure. And I understand that and Ryan appreciate the call The funny thing about that was we didn't David Montgomery was there and they didn't give him the ball. The first half of the season. And then finally, when Bill Lazor took over the play calling and how much of the play calling he took over. We'll never know for sure, because we're not in the headset. We're not in Mitch his helmet. We don't know if it's Bill laser or You know Matt Maggie, letting him know the final play call or how much Nagy has gotten involved in it now or Virginia for that, man, By the way, Happy birthday. She's 98 now 98 years old and going strong from what we understand, So I would think she'll be out of the Superdome as the 6700 fans are gonna be at the Superdome. So it's kind of nice that they're playing in New Orleans, where New Orleans says he huge home field advantage when the place is full. With only 6700 fans, depending on how much they turned up the music and turn everything else up..

"I appreciate the compliment on Twitter from the explosion just said I don't have access to the text line right now. So you have the film? Yeah. Yeah, but anyway, so you could vote on that Have a little fun. Let's let's hear from Vic Fangio. So Interesting situation for Vic Fangio right? Because he goes from being the head coach, which he's been And now he's shifting a little bit more just a little bit more into the personnel side. But the fact is in Vicky been points this out. Don't know if it's in the sound bite her in the one He points it out that If you're a good organization you're using Your head coach in part Of building your roster, right? I mean, I make it only makes sense. Why wouldn't you want the input from your head Coach? On what he needs to win. Simple right, so, but it is funny how there are some people that do subscribe to the idea that the GM picks the team of the coach coaches, the team. Look the most successful teams in the league right now. It's not like that. The coaches have input. There is an organizational direction if you can believe that. Have more on that the first years. Vic Fangio, talking about his greater role in personnel as he's gonna be, in part hiring a new GM. Well, we've had a role in it here, you know the last two years. I think that will depend upon you know who we hire, how they envisioned running the evaluation process. But you know, in this day and age with the teams Changing so much, even year to year. Even the really good teams teams, not with records, you know it proves Tonto have the coaches involved. Also, there's a vision. In a consensus of how the player fits exactly, but it's funny when I was listening to that earlier today, and it's such a Simple concept. But the Broncos have changed coaches so many times that that Message means something different to every single coach. That would have said it What? Gary Kubiak will, starting with John Fox with Peyton Manning. You know John Fox in John Elway, then to Gary Kubiak. With John Elway, then to Vance Joseph, with John Elway. And now the Vic Fangio. You get the input from each of your coaches on what they need to win. And you're changing philosophies constantly. If you're really following that, So then it's any wonder why you have taken so long to finally build the talent. On the roster to actually have some optimism that it's going eventually pay off because what Vance Joseph needed to win is not necessarily what Victor and you'll be looking for the win, would it No, they're not. They're different In terms of what personnel personnel. You're talking about the types of players. The personalities you want in your locker room, right? So Vance Joseph didn't care of his DBS could hit. He just wanted to cover Vic Fangio's Pacific Fangio once his DBS to hit because you're keeping the play in front of You gotta be a sure tackler. Social responsibility there. Um, you know, Vance Joseph. That didn't really care if his linebackers could cover. They're coming downhill. That's why you had Todd Davis. You know, Vic Fangio uses linebackers to be go away, be able to go away from the ball because he doesn't want to send that much pressure. It's Yeah, it's it's basically entirely different philosophies s. Oh, yeah, You're right. It is theirs and what those coaches need your cooking different dishes. Yeah, You need different ingredients. So then. The bigger question. The bigger point He comes Is Vic Fangio, the right guy to give maybe even a little bit more of that, as they bring in the new GM because you don't want too many cooks in the kitchen, right? You want. You want to make sure that the right voices were saying the right things and making the right decision is the right time. Right? So I mean, you don't want to all of a sudden we're adding a new GM. And then we're giving Vic Fangio more the John Elway still hanging over all of that, and he's got the final standing like you want to be very careful about mixing that soup. So how does how do you envision that looking? I don't think that's the way you look at. I think you look at it is you've got a head coach has been in the league 40 years. Has worked with a lot of general managers and know what knows what bad general manager Shit looks like. It. Fangio's job is gonna be won or lost by how Vic Fangio coaches on the field. It's not going to be won or lost by who he decides that general manager is, if he's going to be the ultimate decision maker. He's gonna have input. Got away from whatever you think of him was an excellent player. It has a very high winning percentages of general manager. He's made some correct decisions. Despite this rebuild, not being able to find the quarterback was his flaw. That doesn't mean that he was terrible that everything because he wasn't So there's another guy with 10 years of general manager experience in the NFL. Not including the apparently arena league time that everyone forgot about for some reason Championship, right Winning, right? Yeah. Um And you know, however long even how long was your player against 17 years. The player He's probably gonna have some advice on what bad general managers look like versus decent general managers. And so you want them to be involved in that process. That doesn't mean that their fingerprints are gonna be on the new general manager isn't going to take a job or he's a puppet. He's going to take a job where he's like, Look, this is my the culmination of my life's dream. I'm gonna take a job and I'm gonna be the man you're this is a resident building moment for you. It's a resume building moment for for hopefully this team and beyond, In fact, Micro cause of that..

"Picks the best players that every position in 2020 And there was a bear listed. Aaron Rodgers. Oh, Didn't get him Amukamara. No, we don't get him. Stefan Diggs, No Davante Adams, DeAndre Hopkins, Travis Kelsey. Those are terrific. Quality. Top of the line top shelf off offensive weapons for any football team, not our team, but they're not bears correct. All right, let's go to the defense of side of the football. It's got to be the guy who's like the second highest paid defensive player of all time. Khalil Mack, right, isn't it? No. Wait a minute. We're paying. How much for our two end edge rushers, and neither guy neither. Can't play off the other and make this list. Roque Juan Smith is the only bear listed. I want you to think about that. Just let that wash over you just for a second. Our captors gave you two guys that most teams would want on the surface. Not this year. Just so much on the surface, say, Hey, you can have a difference making player at all at linebacker like Robert Quinn. Or have someone at linebacker like Roll Kwan Smith. And you said, or I'm sorry, or like or Khalil Mack at outside line, But so, yeah, I'll love to have those guys on my football team. But then you see the lack of production. You go. Wait a minute. Now Wait a minute. You mean tell me those guys They're not getting to the quarterback. But yet, bro Quan Smith, The inside linebacker is a guy that's listed on this on this list here about that. Like again. As I told you. I've seen every step a record Smith when he said Georgia Big Georgia fan, I said, if where he's gonna go, he's gonna be a cornerstone player for 10 years. You may not make all the splash plays, but he's gonna be dependable and be right there. People ask about learned floor people were blowing up my phone like we learned Floyd. Hey, you've seen every step. What do you think that I go? Yeah, He was always around the pile at the reason for the pile. No, no, no. He's Julius Peppers that no, he's not. He wasn't with the Bears. Right now he's playing better. Remember listening to you at night. And New York. Georgia fan bears get Leonard Floyd I tune in the hoody and he's like, Yeah, I don't like this pic. So I walk in the next day, and York has a relative who played a Georgia And you're very good at analyzing defensive players. Nice it has snowed last night. He's a huge Georgia fan. He does not like the Leonard Floyd pick, he said. Smart man. He's got no rear end. He is going to struggle to get off blocks. It's a bad pick. Yeah. I'm like two guys are telling me this devastated. We traded up to get him and now he gets 10.5 sacks because he plays off of Aaron. Donald. Very well. Well as a talent evaluator yourself. Because that's what coaching is, as we're scouting is telling evaluation. You know what? I see something in him. I know I can get the most out of them by doing this or in this scheme is gonna work. You make the pics. You make one of the picks you want, but you always feel like you know what? He's not quite the Polish guy just as of yet, but I know I can get more out of him. That's what you always feel. That's why you make the pics. Right. And then you saw him with the Bears and just didn't work. Okay, so Danny And it was me Danny. Was it Ryan, the goofy I think it was the three of us and I walked away. John Fox is that Waddell's house, Danny and Gulf and Fox here drinking vodka. And Fox could put the vodka down and he says, Let me just refill my glass, and he's telling stories, and then I end up walking away. My son was with me and my wife and Danny. That's why his voice sounds like that. Yeah, and Danny back me up, Danny did Fox not say Leonard Floyd is Jason Taylor. CORRECT. He did. Yeah, he did. He also said that Mitch two bit. He also said Mitch for Biscuit is going to turn into one hell of a quarterback. So they're still out. Take that with a grain of salt, But he did say it that same thing because I was still standing there, he told you and Ryan. Yeah, but I would have drafted to Shawn Watson. He's better. He did say that he did say that. Absolutely damn right. Damn right. You would have I take the winner but over the project, but Leonard Floyd, he said Jason Taylor and I remember I think it might have been Danny Jason Taylor's in the Hall of Fame. Yep. No, and he's going to be that guy Gold, Jack. Hey, old, jagged green jacket. Yeah, I mean gold jacket. Yeah, So I think so. They all Miss Man they all miss, You always think you could get the most out of a certain player he's ever thinking. But let's put a bow on this because When Danny gave us this list here and I'm looking through and I'm looking for bears, he says. Only person hears What real Kwan Smith. That's a further indictment on pace. Just is. Oh, yes. Yes. You have what you thought was the genuine article by getting Robert Quinn in here. You say you know what we already have a key mix. We already have. Clearly, Mac, let's add Robert Quinn to the mix. Try putting your head on the head of the hat because your defense already was good. You know you weren't at your doctor. Susan. I got 34 hats. He walked around, But now two of those heads can't get you to the quarterback. Okay? What if Ryan said to you, Jonathan? 100 Floyd got tired to have sex in l A. Why couldn't our coaches get that out of him? Don't fire the coach is that Right? Does it validate his evaluation? Because Leonard Floyd has developed into a pretty damn good football player in L. A get a double digit sack season. Pretty damn impressive It is, But when you got Quinn isn't it seemed excessive, especially when you need to help on the offensive line. It all goes back in the same circle. It goes back to the same conversation of You already have picks and you have Mac. And you have guys that you like for the future Like a nickel's. You didn't know what Britt Urban was going to be. What? You had a good secondary. You thought, OK, you're good. Cap..

"The eighth are women if the day was a writer poet and Protestant martyr. Let's talk about an ask you not much is known for sure about her early life but it's believed that and ask you it was born around fifteen twenty one and grew up in Lincolnshire England her a father was from an old established family in the region an an was highly educated and intellectually adapt from early on in her life and was a devout out Protestant. The Christian Bible had just become widely available in English and an studied and memorized verses. Some sources say she studied the Public Bible at the Lincoln Cathedral and debated with local clergy an was also one of the earliest known women poets who wrote in English as a quick reminder. Protestant Christianity was growing rapidly across Europe during Ann's lifetime but it wasn't a monolithic movement by any stretch of the imagination King Henry the eighth who had been a devout Catholic split from the Catholic Church after the pope refused to annul his first marriage and started the Anglican Church despite that fact the Anglican Church remained much closer to the beliefs and practices of the Catholic Church than other reform for movements like those led by Martin Luther or John Calvin Christianity which began as a fledgling religion in the first century had grown by the thirteenth eighteenth century into an institution powerful enough to rival state governments in the decade after England's official move away from Catholocism authorities developed developed relatively orthodox criteria for what kinds of Protestant beliefs were allowed in England and condemned the beliefs of more radical reform movements back to an and married a man named Thomas kind. The two had a rocky relationship he he had actually been intended for an older sister but her older sister passed away. Thomas was Catholic so from the beginning he and an clashed over their beliefs chiefs. Perhaps that's why an continued to go by her maiden name which was quite rare at the time. Still the couple had two children together before Thomas Thomas through an out for being a Protestant seems like an was okay with having to leave. She was the first Englishwoman to demand divorce. She then moved to London met other. Protestants and became a preacher or Gospel her then in March fifteen forty five Thomas changed his mind he had an arrested and demanded she be brought back to Lincolnshire to stay and escaped and returned to her preaching in London she she was arrested and released again before in May fifteen forty six an was arrested a third time put in the Tower of London and tortured. Do you say the priests cannot make the body of Christ. I say so lord driver at the God made late man but the man can make God i never yet and after the consecration is it not the body of Christ and it tastes consecrated bread. Her beliefs have been deemed unacceptable and torturers wanted her to name name other like minded women to renounce her beliefs but anne refused she was convicted of heresy and her punishment was to be burned at the stake mm-hmm on July Sixteenth fifteen forty six and was carried to the steak on a chair. She couldn't walk through the torture. She hit endured she she and three other Protestants were set to burn that day however Protestant supporters slipped gunpowder to the condemned that went off quickly once the fire. It was let thanks to that kindness. Their deaths were much quicker and less painful and was one of just two women on record who were tortured and the Tower of London and burnt at the stake before her death and wrote an account of her beliefs and story it was published as the examinations by John Bale it.

NFL Quarterback Analysis - Which teams have it made?
"You know, we were talking about Tom Brady, and I just don't buy into the, you know, the system quarterback thing. Although I do think if you put drew Brees where Tom is. I think he'd have a lot of success when when I got into a discussion the other day about Tom I asked an Hugh Jackson about this off the air. I said you face Tom Brady many times. What does he do athletically that special any o- one of the things he said is first of all he's bigger than you think when you when you walk up the Tom Brady, he's all a six four and a half six five. And he said the second thing is he throws a really good football. When you watch him on tape. If you didn't know it was Tom Brady what jumps out to you. I'm not talking about leader. Ship, but what jumps out to you physically? Well, I would definitely call an echo. Would you Jackson said at the second thing? He throws a really good ball, and it sort of became gospel early in his career that he doesn't have a big arm and a big arm is a relative thing, you know, who's arm is not in Matthew Stafford's arm. Let's say, but he throws a really good ball. And you know, that to just by common sense by where he plays and the fact that in November and December January his ball cuts through it does. So he throws a really good ball with a bigger arm and a better on people probably think. Yeah. That would also say that would make him really good apart from the mental which is very critical. But let's leave that aside for the moment was I think his ability to work within the pocket and navigate the pocket is outstanding. You know, we're not talking about being able to run a fast forty or run. Run outside the pocket and throw on the run. I'm talking about the ability to work really effectively with believe it or not relatively light feet in an area. Let's say this is over a little smaller than a boxing ring. Yeah. No, that's well, he slides very well. Yep. He's got an intuitive sense of pressure, which the great ones generally done. Have. You know, I was watching the Packers this last week and just an eye test. They don't do a lot of motion. They don't look clever as the Rams they don't look as sharp as the bears. We we've talked about Aaron Rodgers ad-libbing. Sometimes too much holding the ball too much. When I watched the Packers is some of this on McCarthy that they just state my the I test is Aaron has to provide the special and the creative. I don't see a lot of creative out of their offense. That's what my eyes tell me. Well, let me ask you this. You know, obviously, they want a Super Bowl. I can't remember everything they did six or seven years ago as I'm sure you can. Either. But my guess is that Mike McCarthy because he has a definite philosophy had a playoff a football hasn't changed dramatically fair. So if that's the case, then you know, what is ultimately changed? I, you know, I'm not sure exactly at answer that I think the Packers over the last number of years have not been very committed to running the football. I think they were more so back a number of years ago when you think about those two or three years consecutively that Ryan grant had where I don't have the numbers in front of me. But I bet he had two hundred thirty two hundred forty carries. And he was used essentially as feature back. You know, I don't think they've been running that style of offense in recent years. Speaking of the bears, John FOX was there with Trubisky. And now, it's Matt Nagy are they are they doing things because right now, I think the bears are better than the Packers. And I know him in the minority are they doing things offense eternally, which you believe are absolutely elevating Trubisky. They're averaging thirteen more points a game. What is he doing to a quarterback icy with a very low ceiling? Well, I think what what the matinees do and good offensive coach ado is they present defined reads and based on their route concepts versus anticipated coverages.

WWE - Roman Reigns announces his leukemia diagnosis
"McMahon. And it's rough definitely for Roman reigns. Apparently, he's been dealing with it for eleven years. So all the best Roman reigns. A guy that always he goes in does for young people. Wish all he does for that company stepping away from the company so all the best Roman reigns there. And I'm sure I'll be talking about that this week on Tuesday. Wrestling Tuesday, part of my podcast that I do for under the hood with childhood. Glad you're with this. Here's we talk bears. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six phone number as the bears lose to the New England Patriots thirty eight to thirty one. We asked on the poll question, we're asking the lines as well is your letter grade for the bears to the first six games of the season. Fifty percent of you say see forty three percent of you say Bs. So it's pretty close between the CNBC. It's not a it's not a D. It's really a B minus two a C. It's three and three your five hundred. I mean, I mean, you can make five hundred sound how you want. If it wasn't for this play. If it wasn't for this happiest the the Packers. If it wasn't for these plays against the Miami Dolphins. If it wasn't for those plays against the patriots yesterday. Bottom line is is that those losses. But there are wins. There as well. And as I mentioned in our first hour, I'm looking to be wrong about the bears. Seventy nine is not bad when you have a first year coach and you're trying to dig out from underneath. I'm just hoping for better for this bears team that maybe they're better than I think, but we have to see as the season progresses. See how they're going to work out. I think that what I've seen for the bears. The first six games is similar to. Maybe what you see is that there's some improvement there with the offense. But it's still a long way to go because there are so many different wrinkles with this offense. And you look at the defense the defense look played well early you see how the defense is playing when Khalil Mack one hundred percent. This is not just a Khalil Mack defense there other guys defensively to need to step up as well. It's not Leonard Floyd defense. Others have to be able to get to the quarterback. Maybe it happens against Sam darnold on Sunday. We'll see. But I just when I saw from the bears defense last couple of games reminded me of lovey at the end. And really a lot of the John FOX era in which there is a lot in between there. We're after the the kickoff is there and the the opposite team is settled Lynn there's a lot of lot of plays in the back of the linebackers in front of the secondary cash cash over and over again big plays missed tackles that can't happen. Can't happen. So I I'm I'm I don't care if you're a team that's not just for the playoffs or not. That's gotta get better. So we're talking to you about this on the spirits Monday. Three one two three three two ESPN three three two three seven seven six is our phone number some thoughts from Mitch Trubisky. There's a lot of under throws and as a mistakes made by Trubisky. He just thought he played all right in yesterday's performance. If the patriots. All right made some plays here. And there we're moving the ball offense. But then you just go back to those given the ball away the Turner assumptions and not that I thought they were bad decisions or anything or bad throws. Just fifty fifty balls and the credit goes from making plays. But we got to continue to take care of the football. That's on me. But we didn't have the balls offense. Probably way we battled which gotta make sure that we just come closer together and get better from the experience and and go back to work this week because it takes all three phases and all eleven guys at the same time on each and every single play. So thought we did some good things. I thought I played all right. And just gonna watch the film and see what we can do even better feel like I left some completions out there. Immediately. You come back. You look at the completion percentage that you just want to complete every throw you you go out there. But I thought I gave him my my team a chance to win. We are close on the last play. But like I said before it's a combination of plays throughout the game. Which you gotta make sure that we continue to get better as an offense. I thought we did some good things today. But we just gotta make sure that we continue to clean up clean up. Our mistakes be even better on third down in the red zone. Continue to move the football and take pressure of our defense and special teams and make sure we're getting better in those areas. Well, so keeping proving as a team three one two three three two ESPN's are full number. Your letter grade for the bears in the first six games of the year. Greg in stream would on ESPN without Greg. Hey, how you doing? Thanks for taking my call. Thanks for your call. So my letter rate is a sea and to start off by head the bears at the beginning of season at six and eight then they got Khalil Mack. I went to seven and nine then after the first couple of games, and like, oh, maybe there in eighteen and the reason at the C is there. They're making a lot of the same stakes over and over and a say into games, they're not learning from their mistakes like miss tackles last against Tampa, you clean that up. And then you see a whole bunch of the patriot. Same thing for Mitchell Trubisky miss. This passes overshooting under throwing and then passes in the end zone where he doesn't see defender. I mean, those are the reasons I think they're they're not learning from their previous mistakes. All right. So you had them at six eight and one apparently a tie was going to be in that mix as well. All right. My friend. I'm glad you checked in Greg. I appreciate your phone calls. Some good thoughts there. He leaves line. Open three one two three three two ESPN's our phone number Mike in Lakeview with Jonathan owners. We talked bears on ESPN one thousand Michael, hey, how's it going? I'm just I'm confused. How people are getting a B if we're three and three, but I don't know. Aside from that. I give the bears or be right now. We're we're we're barely getting by. You know, we're barely passed. And we're three and three. I went to the game on Sunday. I was there. And I saw things that the coach didn't see I saw an injured Khalil Mack out there. Just basically like a pond I saw we let Tom Brady do whatever he wanted in the back young out and he made a lot of passes. We gave them time. I saw sloppy special teams which I haven't seen in a long time. You can't excuse special teams ball on that one kick return has to feel was wide open. I don't know where the coaching was on that. Or what special teams play that was? So I've seen a lot of negatives and three and three. And I mean, that's the record three and three is five hundred percent. So I give us a D. We're barely. We're barely squeaking by right now. And we're almost to the halfway point. And we're at risk of repeating last year over again. So fifty percent back in school was failing record, right? Yes. It was. I just graduate. You I see if you get fifty speech. You might be at her about give him a d a d for NFL curb. But if I don't know what school they went to the fifty fifth is not good go flames bike. Go flames. I don't know, man. I they played good last year. When I was there flames, you say go there, you go buddy. That was that really was the hallmark of flames fan there. Go flames. We really didn't play. Well, that Larry we could have played better at Fort Wayne game, usually the the laments from the literally go flames, you know. The yearly could have won the horizon last year. He'd be another beer bartender is usually when hot is it literally put this on the poll Felix at ESPN one thousand do you see things that Matt Nagy doesn't see? Yes. Or no. Mike Mike from Lakeview said he was at the game. And he saw things that Matt Nagy did not see on film. Three one two three three two ESPN is our telephone number John and Juliet would Jonathan hood here on ESPN one thousand here on this beer down Monday. Hello, john. Hey, how you doing for taking my call? You know, I'm doing we're we're we're three and three staring into the jets game. You know what I'm doing? I know you don't want though Brady didn't walk in the league and was a Super Bowl champion to begin with Pfizer some stuff. So you know, what I I give them a c plausible because at least offense has some kind of program. That is almost reminiscing. What New England does not too many teams have them. I don't wanna be the giants right now. At least at least they have a little bit assaulter role in the right direction. So I mean, don't let's not get down on Brady didn't come in. And just went Super Bowls. It took a while before. He did I understand. But I think that when you on this city, you have to call it the way you see it. Meaning that if there's some good and some bad see, that's the thing. This is not a D effort. I understand I understand Mike from Lakeview. He's the fan. So of course, he he sees things with the glass half empty. But what I'm saying is is that there's some five hundred the way, I look at it is there's some good and some bad like this. You're right. It could be the giant. It could be a bad situation. It's not usually this first year teams when a coaching staff looks at his roster and says man, there's a lot guys can't play on this roster. We cleaned up. And we got to get better for your two year three or four. Here's something that I think that I see that. Matt Nagy doesn't see he didn't see that that Josh Bellamy. And Dion SIMS should not be on this roster.
