"I earned my master's degree in acting. And I earned my doctor and denial. See, we women, especially as Christians, we've mastered acting. How are you doing? Great. Me too. I've never had a problem in my life. I don't even need to save here. Me neither. Sherry rose shepherd is our guest today on focus on the family and she shares a story of overcoming major challenges in life and how to admit when you need help from others and from God. With focus on the family president Jim Daly, I'm John fuller. John Sheridan Roche shepherd is a former beauty queen and she won the misses United States title in 1994. But by the time she achieved that honor she had already learned that only Jesus Christ could give her the affirmation that she's so desperately craved. So let's get rolling. I know the listeners were really encouraged by her story. Here's sherry rose shepherd author of the series of books called his princess on today's episode of focus on the family. Well, I am honored to be in the room with so much royalty. With so many daughters of the king, so many of his princesses in one place. I think we forget who we are, don't we? We forget that we're royalty. We forget that God says, you did not choose me. I chose you. We forget that, don't we? Well, I'm a former misses United States, but my real title is misunderstood. I am a Jewish American princess. That goes around the country telling people Jesus is my king. That's misunderstood. Especially by my Jewish family. And for those of you that don't know the difference between Miss America and Mrs. America, it's cellulite. When I first won The Crown of misses United States, my son was in kindergarten. And in kindergarten, the big deal is show and tell. So he couldn't wait to go to school and he says, everybody, my mom is the new queen of the country. And I came to pick Jake up that day, no makeup on. My hair in a bun in gray sweats. And when I don't wear makeup, I don't have a face. And I went to pick him up and his teacher comes running down, goes, this is so cute. Your little boy loves you so much that he actually believes your Mrs. America. I said, I am. She said, you're kidding. Then I was asked if I was Miss America's mother. But you know what's sad is when someone looks at us, the daughters of the king, his princess, and says you're kidding. You're kidding, you're a Christian? And they don't see who Christ is. And tonight I'm going to talk about being his princess. And I'd like to pray for you because I have learned. It is not the house we live in, the accomplishments that we have, the way that we look, the possessions that we have, the job title that we wear, that defines who we really are. It's the power of Christ in us that gives us purpose and gives us power and gives hope to a dine world. And I would like to pray for you ephesians three 19 and 20. I pray that you would know the love of Christ, which passes knowledge that you may be filled with the fullness of God and now to him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than we would ever dare to ask hope or dream for. See, I didn't become a Christian till I was 24. And as I toured the country, I have seen many cushions that love the lord, but have never experienced exceedingly abundantly more. At best, many of us are just hanging on to our faith for dear life, thank God, please get me through this. Now, I grew up in a very dysfunctional Hollywood home. My father was a disc jockey in Hollywood, my mother was an actress and a beauty queen. My parents married and divorced three times each. I've been a part of 5 blended families. I know what it's like to have your foundation shaken. And every time I settled into a situation, there was another divorce, another affair, another thing changed. And I grew up very angry, and I made a lot of poor choices when I was a young girl. And those poor choices turned me into a person that I didn't want to be. When I was 16, I was 60 pounds overweight. I was addicted to drugs. I was angry, and I was depressed. And if one of you had walked up to me, when I was in my high school field, smoking pot, hating life, and looked at me as a Christian, and said, guess what? He is able to do exceedingly abundantly more than you would ever dare to dream hope or ask for. Guess what? Someday, when you give your life to the lord, God is going to use your pain for a purpose. I would have not believed you. See, the reason why we don't live exceedingly abundantly more than we'd ever hope to dream for is we don't really recognize who we are in Christ. We don't really understand that we really are his princess, that we really are daughters of the most high king, and that everything we do in say can affect future generations. My motivation to not allow history to repeat itself. My motivation to say, I don't have to be my parents. I didn't have to come from the perfect family 'cause I have the perfect heavenly father. And I can look to older godly wise women. I can study their lives. I can ask them questions, and I can be the mom and wife that God called me to be regardless of my foundation. I don't have to lose. When I was 6, 17, when I was a junior in high school, 16 and 17, I wanted to go to the prom. And no one asked me. And I paid my best friend's brother to take me. And why I was there, the homecoming king came and asked me if I was going to the beach party after the prom. Well, I had a crush on him. I thought he was the most adorable thing I'd ever saw in that excited. I mean, I said, yes, I am. Why'd you ask? He goes, because you look like a whale. And you look like you belong on the beach. And I ran into the bathroom, and I looked in the mirror, and I made a promise to myself that I would never be fat or ugly or made fun of again. And I went on a mission to perfect myself physically. But that particular night I was so broken by the things that this young man had said that when I was on the beach at the party trying to impress my Friends and bury my pain, I almost ODed on a drug overdose. I was brought home from the hospital, and I went into my bathroom. And I was laying on the floor, and I was crying. And my stepmother came in and she got on the floor with me and she put her arms around me, and she said, sherry rose, how long?

"Large armoire had fallen over and blocked the entrance. They found John Sheridan's body under the armoire. He was stabbed and badly burned. The door blocked by the armoire would become a crucial detail for the detectives because if there was an intruder, how did that person get out? We're gonna need our rehabbing. Then they removed the body of Joyce Sheridan, who was lying on the floor by the bed. The firefighter who carried her out was covered in blood. We still working on the bar. From WNYC in New York, this is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone. This week, how the efforts of a gumshoe reporter sometimes can maybe lead to change. Nancy Solomon is a longtime colleague in a reporter for OTM producing station WNYC in her new podcast dead end, a New Jersey political murder mystery. She tells the story of the death of a prominent couple in New Jersey, so it's a true crime cold case investigation. It's also a deep dive into the inner workings of how local politics work and don't. In the garden state. Nancy will take it from here. I live in New Jersey. And cover the state for WNYC. And that's almost a full-time political corruption beat. John Sheridan was connected to some of the most powerful politicians and movers and shakers in the state. And that was enough to make me follow every detail of this story. I was one of the first from the crime scene unit

"When the prosecutor's office tells you that it was a murder suicide, that's like a gut punch. Peter Sheridan is John's younger brother, and a federal judge in New Jersey. It's worse than a gut punch, though, because it got punched the pain goes away after a short period of time. And this is more like more like a scar. It's there every day. And you can't. You can't get around it. You're confronted by it. For me, just about every morning. He's been inspired by the four Sheridan sons. How they've hung together and continued to seek justice. They're fighting for the reputation and their parents every day. And. Sorry. They just do a great job at that. The Sheridan family is hopeful that the new state investigation will uncover new facts about their parents deaths. But even if the trail has gone too cold, there is something that can be done. The evidence in that bedroom makes a clear case for double homicide. The death certificate for John Sheridan can be changed. His manner of death should no longer be listed as undetermined. That change would bring some semblance of justice for one family. But when a well connected family has to fight for 7 years to get the bare minimum in terms of justice, it raises questions about the justice system itself. The attorney general of New Jersey was missing in action on this case for 7 years. It will take a lot more investigation to figure out why. You've been listening to excerpts from WNYC's dead end. There's much more reporting in the 8 part series, which you can find wherever you get your podcasts. If you check out the on the media podcast feed this week, you'll find a conversation I have with Nancy about the making of the series and how she wrestled with the tension between unrolling a juicy crime story and staying true to the tenets of journalism. Dead end was reported by Nancy Solomon with Karen filmin in Emily boutin, sound design and original music by Jared Paul. Jennifer Munson is our technical director Katy Rogers is our executive producer on the media is a production of WNYC studios. I'm Brooke gladstone. Shocking. Everybody was very shocked. On radiolab, he read this article about bendectin. It was said to affect the limbs. How does the law decide? What's the matter with his foot? Is something wrong with this foot? What is and isn't science? If this is true and there's a problem with this drug, how could you live with yourself if you knew what had happened? And you didn't try to stop it. The gatekeeper from radiolab was wherever you get podcasts.

"Just as we were finishing the podcast, I heard some of the folks I'd interviewed were contacted by the New Jersey attorney general's office. I was able to confirm they had opened a new investigation into the Sheridan deaths. Something that office had refused to do for 7 years. Hello. Hi, bob. It's Nancy Solomon, WNYC. Hello, Nancy. How are you? I'm good. You got a minute? I had heard some people had been contacted by a state investigator, including bob and Chris Stevens. I see to know more about me than I knew. So they were good friends of John and Joyce. You know, Chris was the one who'd had a three hour lunch with Joyce just to day and a half before the Sheridan died. Her husband bob is a lawyer who used to work in the attorney general's office. Sure enough, they had heard from the AG's office, too, and in fact, bob told me they were called into the offices in Trenton. We were questioned separately and cheating come out in handcuffs. So I was good, so. Hold on, let me find Chris. If I can find her, it's not a big house. A few weeks ago, Chris had wanted to talk with me about the investigation. But bob had been concerned that it might need to be kept confidential. Hey, honey. Can I talk to Nancy? Sure. He said, sure. Okay, so that's good. Oh, good. Tell me about getting the call from them. And what it was like and how you felt about it. I was nervous. You know, it was, I was used to talking to you, but I guess first of all, scared, you know, gone as a justice complex. And I have to see everything. But I got the impression that the FBI was really looking into everything and the same with the state investigators. That's the first I heard the FBI's involved. The Stevens didn't know why, and I haven't been able to find out anything more. The part of this story that disturbs me most is something quite separate from the political and financial shenanigans that go on in my state. John Sheridan was effectively convicted of murdering his wife. Without judge or jury. You can't just do this. You know, you basically are ruining this man's reputation without any kind of hearing. And without any kind of evidentiary standard John farmer was John Sheridan's longtime friend, who served a term as attorney general under Christine Todd Whitman. When you have a situation like this, there's a right to some kind of hearing. Like they have other jurisdictions where the medical has an inquest, and they present what the evidence is, and you have a chance to challenge it. That doesn't exist. And that's a big, big gap, I think, in our law. Many states hold an inquest when a person dies from anything other than natural causes. That's a legal proceeding in front of a judge that would have required the Somerset county detectives to present evidence. With that requirement, the detectives might not have been able to get away with never fully investigating the crime. Not only wasn't the crime properly investigated. But the Sheridan family had to fight just to get their father's death certificate changed

"Wherever you get podcasts. This is on the media. I'm Brooke gladstone, and this is the conclusion of our excerpts from dead end, a New Jersey political murder mystery. Here's the host of the podcast Nancy Solomon. Jeff pellets is an investigative reporter who has been watching the political players in south Jersey for decades. Together, we spent months digging into the documents left on the Sheridan, dining room table. They detail a dispute over the sale of L three. The building on the campton waterfront. Cooper's ferry partnership had a contract to buy it at a very good price. But George norcross and his brother Phil informed the leaders of the nonprofit that they wanted to choose, who would buy the property. That led to a series of emails where the nonprofit asked John Sheridan for his help. What happened then in the subsequent months according to these documents is Cooper's ferry did everything they possibly could to fight off George Nord crosses. Aligned companies from taking it over. As Jeff pellets and I dug into the documents, we could see it all came to a head in April 2014. A memo in John Sheridan's handwriting details a call with the two top guys at Cooper's ferry partnership. The local nonprofit developer, they'd had a meeting with Phil norcross, and were asking for Sheridan's help. If you're looking for the fingerprints of the party boss, George norcross, this memo pretty much has it on here, the Cooper's ferry people, these executives are telling Sean Sheridan Phil says we're persona non grata. Then he says, they have to get out of the real estate business. So basically, you have, according to this document, you have Phil norcross George norcross telling the chief nonprofit developer in town, you can't be in the real estate business. I recently sent letters to George and Phil norcross, and asked them whether they said the Cooper's very executives would be persona non grata. And if they did, what did they mean? They didn't address that question. These guys have no official position, but this is evidence. Of some nature that they want to control. What happens in this town? And that they are controlling what happened in this town. So that leads to really only a week or two later. John Sheridan has a meeting at Parker McKay, the law office of Phil norcross. This is about what time this is now. This is now may 5th 2014. 2014. At 12 O 7 p.m. I happen to know. Because it has because he put his visitor sticker from Parker McKay on top of the envelope where he had scribbled notes.

"That story starts in 2013 when then governor Chris Christie signed the economic opportunity act. It was a bill that supercharged New Jersey's corporate tax break program. And the tax breaks were beyond generous. The bill was sponsored in part by Donald norcross, a brother of George. He was a state senator at the time, and now he's a member of Congress. And sections of the bill were written by lawyers at the firm led by a third brother, Phil norcross. The state owned L three. It was built in the 90s, and it looks like a bland office park. Two buildings, each three stories high, and made of brick. In 2014, the generous tax breaks for Camden were just going into effect. And L three was a one of a kind opportunity. Unlike most buildings in Camden, it was ready for a business to move in, obtain a tax break for doing so. And get its rent paid for ten years. And nobody knew that better than the local business group that had been trying to improve Camden for decades. Cooper's ferry partnership. It's a nonprofit like most towns have, like a business improvement association, or a Main Street alliance. For 30 years, Cooper's ferry has been the primary recruiter of real estate development in the city. And there was L three, a block from the river, with parking, a cafeteria, and a gym. And here's where John Sheridan comes in. He was the CEO of the hospital, and the reason he went to work there was to work on improving Camden. And one of the ways he worked on Camden was by serving as chairman of the board of Cooper's ferry partnership. The small nonprofit saw an opportunity. If the organization bought L three, they could use the profits from the rent to fund parks or farmers markets or other community projects. The nonprofit went to John Sheridan for help when Phil norcross, George's brother, learned about the L three deal. Coming up, we find out what was happening

And those bring you to the back door of the house. Remember what the detectives think. The bedroom doors blocked from the inside by the armoire. So, John Sheridan must

"Was just not the John and Joyce, any of us knew. John Sheridan had worked at the highest levels of government for 40 years. First as a cabinet member, and then as an adviser to several governors. And he'd been a lobbyist for one of the most prominent law firms in the state. Some 1800 people attended the memorial. Sitting next to the former governor was Joyce's best friend. Chris Stevens, they'd been close for 30 years. She would call and say, Chris, call me. Let's go to lunch. The last time Chris saw Joyce was only a day and a half before she died. And just had a nice usual lunch with Joyce. Laughed. Now it was fun. Chris was a social worker, Joyce, a public school teacher, and both husbands were lawyers who were involved in government. Both couples had four kids about the same age. The two families lived in the suburbs, not far from Princeton, Joyce and skillman and Chris just down the road in bell Meade. I really appreciated her humor. She was a very independent, but such a good friend. Should knit me scarves and hats. And I couldn't do anything with my fingers. I'm a mess. So she sort of took care of me in that way. Chris was just back from church on that Sunday morning. When her husband came in to tell her the sheridans had died. She was stunned. And then the detectives decided it was a murder suicide. I don't feel comfortable talking about this. What about it makes you feel uncomfortable and you don't need to say, but because I don't believe it. And neither does bob. And when any of our kids. We're our Friends. Anybody I know does not believe that that happened. I don't have anything else to say, except that I miss her. And I miss John. And you mentioned that you talked about kids and grandkids, was there anything on our mind that was bothering her? I know where you're going. But no. I'm definitely not. I know you have to ask the question,

"Without giving away too much of the podcast is it fair to say that you're reporting has shown the investigation into the deaths of John and Joyce Sheridan At first thought to be murder suicide I should say that it was a sloppy investigation Is that accurate Well yeah I mean I talked to a broad array of people who do believe the investigation was sloppy and that the detectives suffered from coming to too quick of an analysis of the crime scene and that their analysis was wrong We outlined some of the striking details of how many things they got wrong So I'm curious about your motivation going into this One would think that you went in thinking I'm going to solve this murder Did you think you would and did you project the attorney general's response I wanted to solve it but I wasn't sure I would be able to And I think in terms of the AG investigation the fact that we produced the last episode that laid out a case for why the investigation should be reopened and we had to rip that up that kind of tells you where we were headed And we had a lot of people saying that the investigation should be reopened Police detectives journalists John Jay criminal of justice experts lawyers former governor So there was a lot of people that I had talked to who wanted this investigation opened and that happened So you mentioned all of the interviews you've done in this and it must have taken you forever to gather all of that It was a bit I mean it involved a lot of white boards and diagrams and tons of documents I had kind of backed into this whole story because in 2019 I had worked on a yearlong project that was a collaboration with WNYC and ProPublica And I started looking at the power of political machines and that led to what became really a yearlong investigation into what was happening on the Camden water front with land deals and corporate tax breaks My reporting partner Jeff Pilates and I were talking to developers and redevelopment groups and we stumbled into the John Sheridan connection to those deals on the waterfront So Jeff reached out to mark Sheridan's son of John Sheridan the victim in this true crime story And we started talking to him And by the end of 2019 I felt really strongly that this was a story that needed to be retold in the context of what was going on at the waterfront at the time in 2014 So you mentioned Mark Sheridan To the podcast and to your work on the podcast I'm wondering how that relationship with him was developed because I would assume there would have to be a certain level of trust there And it's curious to me now how you did that especially in an age when there's a lot of distrust around the media Mark did do an incredible amount of work trying to figure out who killed his parents He's a well-known attorney in New Jersey and he used to do a lot of legal work for the state Republican Party And he talks about how he would do his very long day job and then he would sit up nights poring over autopsy reports and crime scene photos And to be honest I'm not sure how I managed to convince him to trust me to go down this road But I think some of the reporting that Jeff pellets and I did in 2019 helped that along And I guess there was a little bit of a persistence on my part talking to him for a couple of years about it to the point where he agreed to do and on the record taped interview Thanks so much for your insights to Nancy I really appreciate it Thanks so much.

"A new development in the unsolved killings of a prominent New Jersey couple found dead at home in 2014 The New Jersey attorney general has opened an investigation into the deaths of John and Joyce Sheridan The case has received renewed attention after the release of a podcast from WNYC studios dead end a New Jersey political murder mystery Reported hosted that podcast Nancy Solomon joins us now Nancy good morning Good morning Michael How are you I'm doing well How about you Is this a new investigation by the attorney general Or the reopening of an old one This is new The four sons of John and Joyce Sheridan asked the state attorney general to get involved several times since their parents deaths first because they agreed with disagreed with the county prosecutors offices initial theory which was that John Sheridan had killed his wife and then himself But also because an independent medical examiner determined that the knife that killed John Sheridan was missing That was the first time they asked the attorney general to intervene They asked a second time when several other mistakes by county detectives were discovered and a third time when the couple's oldest son brought documents to the attorney general that had been left on the dining room table the night the sheridans were killed those documents detail a multi-million dollar real estate deal on the Camden waterfront that involved powerful political interests in New Jersey but 5 successive attorneys general never intervened So Nancy I'm curious what has changed here Well there is a new attorney general Matt platkin He was nominated by governor Phil Murphy in February I don't really know what's behind the decision All I know is that over the last couple of years I've tried to get the current and former attorneys generals to speak with me about the decision About not to intervene in the case And all I got was crickets A couple of weeks ago I started hearing from a few people that they'd been contacted by a state investigator I reached out to the AG and his office actually responded confirming the investigation in a one line email Our office is investigating this matter and we will follow the evidence wherever it leads Now what can you tell us about who their contacting and what the investigation is looking into I know that a state investigator and an FBI agent interviewed a couple who were close friends of John and Joyce Sheridan I had interviewed them for the podcast and then I spoke with them last week after I'd gotten the investigation confirmed Chris Stevens had told the huge crowd that attended the Sheridan's memorial in 2014 that she had had a three hour lunch with Joyce just a day and a half before the sheridans died And then she and her husband bob were really surprised that after saying that to at the memorial that detectives never interviewed Chris about what Joyce had to say at their lunch That was 2014 The interview Chris did recently was pretty much about that lunch how Joyce seemed and whether there had been any trouble in her marriage Chris said absolutely there wasn't She said she's happy that state and federal investigators are finally asking questions We really would risk easier If we knew that everything was resolved on this it would be very comforting knowing that they finally figured out what the story was Nancy has the shared and family said anything about the opening of this investigation Yeah I talked with Mark Sheridan At first he didn't really believe anything would be done But when I told him that Chris and bob Stephens had actually been interviewed that quickly changed his mind Until you just told me that I didn't know for certain that the attorney general's office was actually reopening the investigation was doing anything So I'm happy to hear that they've started to reach out to people I didn't know that But I certainly think it's a good start It's been what more than 7 years now since the sheridans were killed Do you think the case can be solved Michaela I think it's going to be extremely difficult I don't know what's in the original investigative files from Somerset county Did they obtain surveillance video of cars coming and going from the neighborhood Can DNA be extracted from anything that's been kept or stored The problem is that from everything I've been able to find out the Somerset county detectives believed so fervently that it was a murder suicide that they didn't do much investigating And now 7 and a half years later it's certainly a very cold case But some cold cases do get solved So this is a very significant development Nancy Salomon is a senior reported WNYC in the house of the podcast dead end a New Jersey political murder mystery Nancy thank you Thanks

"That's what I know. John Sheridan worked at the attorney general's office, then for the governor, and eventually he was appointed the transportation commissioner in the 1980s. He's credited with turning industrial rail lines into one of the largest commuter rail systems in the country. New Jersey transit. More than 300,000 people commute from New Jersey into New York, and many take the train system that John helped create. In the red cars oral history, Sheridan is asked about another victory. How we convinced democratic legislators to create a gas tax, even if it meant Republicans would get the credit for fixing the state's highways. I got on the road and I went and I actually saw a 117 of the 120 legislators all in their offices. And in the end, while I think there was a lot of ringing of the hands, really didn't want to turn over $3 billion to this Republican governor to start spending on transportation projects. In the end, it passed both houses unanimously. Nobody could not be for it. He was persuasive, but nothing like the kind of people who usually rise up in the rough and tumble world of Jersey politics. I don't think he ever raised his voice to me in all my all my years of knowing John. Mary K Roberts was hired by John Sheridan at record Danzig, the New Jersey law firm. She worked with him closely for a decade in the Trenton office. And we had some very stressful situations. And he taught me that. Almost like, what's the point in yelling? Where does it get you? They talked or emailed.

Welcome back to the drill down as promise. We are joined right now by the ceo. Marathon digital fred thiel fred. Thanks for joining us Your company's very interesting. I'm very interested in the world. Crypto as our listeners. Know i worked for crypto company for a while so i know that world a little bit but what is it that marathon digital does. How do you describe the business. We're one of the largest enterprise scale. Bitcoin miners in north. America today We mind one hundred percent. bitcoin Our servers are minors essentially or verifying transactions assembling blocks and then competing to win those blocks For block rewards against all the other miners. Let's you know crypto. Better than i am better than some But let's let's see if we can do a one hundred thousand foot view of how a bitcoin mining and it's it we can just focus on bitcoin's that's all you guys do. How does bitcoin mining work. What do you need to mind. Bitcoin let me as the question. What in twenty twenty one. You need to mind bitcoin. Well you need a lot of capital for one thing So bitcoin mining is a different business than most because there are only currently nine hundred. Bitcoin awarded every day. And it's essentially an arms race. All the people who reminding are competing to essentially assemble blocks and then do a essentially a cryptographic proof which is a mathematical problem. And if you get the right answer to that proof then you win the block and you're awarded six point. Two five blocks Bitcoin so you think about it it's kind of imagine Every minor is kind of like a race car and you're all racing down the track the more race cars are on the track. The more people are competing for the same prize. And so what ends up happening is if you want to win more bitcoin. You have to put more miners to work to put more miners to work. You have to buy more 'electricity and you have to buy the miners. The are expensive and electricity is obviously expensive. And then you have to work real hard to make sure that you win those races and you win the race by having the fastest minor and so it's a bit like formula one it's an and there's an obsolescence that comes with that too right. Were well the two thousand dollars. Thousands right. the newer mining minor gear which is a essentially a computer with a chip. Right in the end. This those new powerful chips chips that are kind of written purely so that the semiconductor itself. This isn't like using an intel semiconductor this other. That runs your pc or the phone that you may be listening to podcast on right now for listeners. It is a specifically programmed chip that is designed to bitcoin mining and only bitcoin mining right brecht. Yeah it's a application specific integrated circuit. That's what it is. And it's only does shaw to fifty six algorithms. That's all it does and those chips are are getting more expensive about the same price but a great improvement every every year or so so about every five years. There's a generation shift where the chips get more power efficient meaning they generate. Think of it this way Or anybody who's a gear head out there Generates the same amount of horsepower for much better fuel efficiency though fuel being electricity in this case today a typical State of the art. Bitcoin minor consumes about twenty nine jewels of energy her tara hash which is kind of bitcoin. Mining equivalent of horsepower metric and Five years ago it was about sixty jewels. Patera half so you needed twice as much energy to generate the same amount of compute power and before that it was twice as much again and we fully expect within two to five years that you'll see technology available in the marketplace where these miners will operate at fifteen.

"That'll be good indicator but nah i mean i'm i'm expecting of a good things from this team to Yemane like injuries right. Like i think they've got some talent. They've got a chance to to make a pretty good run So don't sell the same short. Don't sell your expectations short They got the guy. They've got a guy quarterback they got the town on offense Illicitly practicing defense to lose some really interesting stuff. It hasn't worked but they've got the guys yet. Does it's definitely like okay that that'd be pretty cool like poorly executed for pretty legs. Things like our our run something like that by by the guys. Eat another guys but yes. So there's they they could spread They can make a pretty pretty sal run this year so i'm excited for that. I'm excited to see how it all comes together. It's gonna take some things you know it's gonna take a lot of. It's gonna take some good coaching. So we're really going to see what these guys are all about. And obviously zach. An lou has taken a lot of heat and this is going to go away this year. We're going to see that. He was zero What they really are. Yup yup while said john my my co host in arms. My bengals comrade. Here closes out my friend when he got forest. Yeah i guess if we're just doing prognosis on the season just be just be freaking interesting man. I've been doing this for many years combined. All of us. I've been doing this for five years. And they've sucked all five years. Just be interesting. So we're not checked out by december. You know whether that's eight wins. Whether that's seventeen wins. What whatever retire real honest could play. It would unload a lot of stress from these shoulders. I guess but you know something is keep keeping me coming back. So we'll see the male male those lucky feet. Those four leaf clovers. Everybody to john sheridan. No i you know. I just kind of said with this team this year. I they may not be. They may not have a winning record. I kind of think that could be in that area. Though that five hundred give or take a game or two. That's kind of my prediction. But i i do think based on the weapons and how. They've improved their team. I kind of said this a little bit. That i think. If they're gonna lose they're gonna lose fun to lose by night. There's not going to be the lopsided. I mean i know doesn't sound great but there's i mean i don't think there's going to be these huge lopsided thirty two three type of baltimore games or anything like that this year. I think they're going to be very competitive. They're going to be fun to watch that you know. Take that for what you will guess. But like kinda to the point of what john said you know. Just be interesting just define and winsome games be competitive show improvement. I think that's the name of the game and obviously if that leads to a wild card. Berth at division title.
