"Issues in the world of sports. I'm Michael Barr. I'm scarlet fu. Scarlett as much as I would love with a capital love to have sat down alongside you to speak with Jim irsay. I couldn't make it. I'm sorry. But you and BN deals reporter Cameron leach whom we spoke to earlier had a chance to sit down for a conversation with the cold center and the CEO of the team. Wish I could have been there, but I'm looking forward to hearing what he had to say. Yeah, top of mind with him, of course, is mental health issues because the colts have an initiative to raise awareness about mental health disorders, remove the stigma that's often associated with these illnesses. He's got some of his own stories to share. And of course, this is a big issue in the NFL among players, coaches, and the staff as well. In any case, here is our conversation with Jim irsay. We are so pleased to welcome now to the Bloomberg business of sports show. The CEO and the owner of the Indianapolis Colts, Jim irsay, Jim, thank you so much for joining us today, sir. Scarlett's good to be here. Really good to talk to you guys. And I love Bloomberg. So thanks for having me. Well, we are honored to have you on the show. I want to start with something that your organization is prioritizing this weekend. And that is a mental health awareness fundraiser. You and your family are hosting this fundraiser on mental health awareness. It's called beyond the sidelines. Tell us why this is such an important and for you a personal issue. You know, I can really get to the crux of it. Of the importance of kicking the stigma and awareness for mental health and raising that awareness, we've had Nash on international commercials to even going overseas for this positive to really raise awareness and attention and it really starts with this understanding the pain suffering misery darkness that mental illness brings stigma that people hide because they don't want to seek help for it. I lost my grandfather to alcoholism in 1927. I lost my dad to alcoholism. In 1997 and in my family, I'm both sides that the illness has been there and it's a genetic disease. And so we really try to point out scarlet that there's no difference than cancer. Someone has pancreatic cancer, you don't say, well, they're fighting their demons. Maybe they can beat this if they just have more character is not that it's fatal disease and some people get better and some don't. Those that don't get better aren't worse people, you just were able to get better and we're trying to get people to seek help because they can't get better without seeking help. Jim, Cameron Lee cheer, you began your kicking the stigma initiative in 2020, which is so good to see, especially in just the time that you did it around the pandemic. What is it that we know about the pandemic and what effect that has that had on people within that time frame? Well, it's been enormous, it really has in the sense that my daughter and I came and my youngest daughter who's been spearheading it mainly even though the whole family is involved. We really said how does Coca-Cola McDonald's why do those companies advertise it because it works? So there really wasn't anything out there at all. I know Michael Phelps, we are honored together in New York at a mental health fundraiser tribute and Michael had a few things out there on a brief commercial, but really couldn't find anything getting to people and with COVID going on, it was all the best of times because with COVID, it really upped the ante with mental health problems in this country and all over the world. So it was really passionate for us to really reach out and say, hey, if you're in your basement right now and you have a gun sitting next to you and you don't know what to do tonight, there's hope. There's a solution. We don't just say there's a problem we say here's a solution. That's the key. There is a solution. And that's what people want to hear. They want to hear hope. Anyone can identify a problem. But you have to identify a solution and give hope. And that's what we're giving hope into the and then to a better day. Yeah. And we know the pandemic really shined a spotlight on mental illness. I want to ask you, however, about mental health and the NFL in particular. From what you've seen in your decades in the league, how pervasive are mental health problems in the NFL, it's clearly a high stress environment for players for coaches for administrators. As an owner, what kind of resources do organizations in the league typically devote to mental health versus what's actually needed? Well, you know, it's a great question. I've been a lead 52 years as started way, way back what John united in a long, long, long time ago involves more. And mental health instantly got on the radar and existed today. We just lost the president that Texans, Houston, Texans, so they retired Jamie was a longtime president there for the late 5 year and the mayor family and had retired, but unfortunately was a suicide victim just only about a month and a half ago. And it's so difficult because you see it in the NFL all the time. And I have seen it going way, way back when it was harder to identify in the 70s and even the 80s there wasn't enough knowledge awareness. And so we have massive resources, but I think the key thing is to get people to seek help start because the problem is imagine if you had a fatal illness except it's your fault and people view you as a less than person. I mean, someone wrote in a tweet. I broke my leg, I received flowers and cards. I had depression. I didn't get one phone call. I had no one contacted me because and it is still bad Scarlett, let's say you have a sister, you know, that's bipolar and is going through difficult times and all sorts of manic moments that can come about none to the fault of the person who's ill. And you're ashamed to just tell someone at a cocktail party and talk about it. No one will hide it. And plus a big problem I want to stress you got insurance companies a problem because I've dealt with a lot of anorexic children in their teens seek

"Breaking news. Everything nine now. Northern colorado's boys one of three one. Thirteen ten kfi k. Mornings with gail via the auto collision specialists studios and no john. Clark are northern colorado voice of institutional wisdom. I did not hear about the stop. Fascist sign on north college. Do tell this is an interesting little piece of information that i just picked it up this morning but evidently Yesterday there was a communication between tom. Gonzalez who is the director of the health department lerma county and the commissioners and other elected officials such as the sheriff and so on Decrying a sign that was painted on the side of a semi truck trailer. That's parked up on north college avenue in fort collins. That says stop fascists. Now i don't know I guess tom gonzalez took that pretty personally that they were talking about the people in his department who were fascist. I i kinda doubt that. That's a sign leftover from world war two But but on the other hand the whole the whole thing is is crazy because he then wrote this this message to all the commissioners and all those other elected officials i just discussed and it basically said that our health department has been providing protection. Great service to the people of lamoure county for over seventy years. Seventy three years is the number that sticks in my mind and and and we find this offensive and hurtful and and this is just something that my dedicated employees are. This is just a real slam at them. They're really good. People were considered best to the community. That that's my paraphrasing of what he wrote and i think it's spot on us to what the sentiment was no indication that that particular sign was directed him well. He even put a picture of the son in instagram. So that was pretty obvious with the b. Sure is well the signed learns there to obviously to everyone's at trailer and so they want it removed. Now the the only basis to remove it is if that particular semi trailer is parked there illegally that that would be but just to take down because the health department people feel bad about it isn't gonna cut it so then The commissioner could shattuck whatever name is mcnally shattuck wrote back and said that the this is offensive. We're going to get with the city of fort collins. It's in their their jurisdiction and see if there's violates assigned code or whatever I'm pretty expert on the signed code in fort collins and there is a limit as to how big assigned you can have however it doesn't cover semi trailer trucks You can put your budweiser as big as you want on the side of your trail. And in this case Evidently this individual has a problem with fascism I guess given the current climate in political situation right now at it very likely could be aimed at people in health department. Though the health department is making assumption here and perhaps it's all of the blowback that came from their attempts to institute for lack of a better term. A what i referred to as a vaccine passports again saying oh no. This is purely voluntary for businesses. And john united talked about that Right as well as soon as it popped up basically they they pressed pause. I'm not gonna say that. Put the kyw bosch on the program. They pressed pause because it is a step on the way toward a vaccine passport. But it's interesting. I guess as you said tempers are flaring. i mean the community. Angry businesses angry Once again it's the ever rotating changing nature of cova nineteen guidelines and restrictions. The for him to take the so personally i. I'm not so sure that well. That's the way he should go with. This would have been better if he had just ignored. Well that's one way but then enter lamoure county. Sheriff justin smith to the rescue. He wrote back and he said that. This is a matter of free. Speech guaranteed by the constitution. This is not something that is considered Hate hate speech It's not something that's considered obscenity. And therefore it is protected by the first amendment. Well okay I i i agree with you in this country. Do not have the right not to be offended. That's right yeah suddenly spot on the and you can't offend other people. It's if you want to. It's not always a great idea. But but yeah you. You can't if you feel strongly offend somebody. He can't hit him. You get hurt and you can't called physical harm to them but just to hurt their feelings That is not a constitutionally protected Right so anyway i. I'm so grateful to justin put some sanity into this whole discourse prone to do you justin. You and i both have a high opinion of justice. I don't know where he's headed next in his political life. But i'm with him wherever he goes so so anyway he put this in so this is just some craziness now. The as i said at the outset the only thing thing that can stop that sign is if that truck is illegally parked wherever it's party but that's not likely because there are a lot of semi trucks naked.

The power to play sports poll question. Who do i want the dream. The fantasy is john. Elway should always be a bronco. That's the dream in the fantasy. But because they're both not billionaires. They're both millionaires. They're not going to be able to do that much with that. Investment money wise. It's going to be based on. What can they do celebrity wise.

"I certainly agree. They'll lose the box The raiders are you know paying what ashamed juice know. It's not ashamed of the giants useless. But like the raiders are the raiders and there in vegas and they have john united in the fact that they're so juice so disappointing. But also right now you have them at four and four secretary. Am at five hundred. My reading. this right I believe so worn by born five. Sorry four hundred hundred this points and then i agree sorry. Didn't mean to not give. Sam darnold any airtime another one in three stretch. I haven't listened to the chargers. Obviously if you listened to the espionage. Nfl show you know. I think the charters are going to be very good. I don't think they're gonna win the super bowl just because it's hard for like first year Quarterbacks in the playoffs to have that season success historically when you look at it but i think they're going to be a very good writer season team and better than steph's so i have the eagles losing that game it's infinitely then justin herbert's gonna light up defense then i have them losing the broncos. I am no teddy bridgewater believer. I just think it's in denver and to defense is going to be tough. I think it's just. It's going to be a tough place to play. Frustrating like fifteen nine sorta game or something like that right frustrating losses like. How do we lose the bridgewater like come on. So this is later in the year and it's like the eagles white uniform. It's just disgusting and it's just like you're just disgusted with this game at this point in ten fisher. I've beating the jameis. Winston led saints. Even though the saints really don't like the eagles and the beat the saints last year which probably end up helping jalen hurts please media hey proper credit in his first. Nfl start yes and then eagles tastes hill. Like let's let's be clear about that. They did but you know it's still. I mean for as bad as the eagles were though. Rj like those. You know it's still good. Win the team stunk ser. And it was being as i start says the mill but like saint other talent on the roster like you should be able to beat the eagles Then they get the new york. Football jets white now. Sorry took over the giants. The new york football giants the back metlife run. Did you see that. I was gonna do you notice that so a little trip up and back. I don't think they're gonna stay in north jersey. Rj this kind of a joke by the way just in case you thought seriously. I don't think they need to stay in north jersey in between those games. But i think they i think they actually lose to the giants. And here's what i mentioned this before. When we did. Our predictions earlier on schedule came out but like the giants another bad but like they want this. This super rj. They want the eagles so bad. They care about it so much. Because i didn't make the playoffs last year. This is this is like the one must win like circle game on their school. They wanted the giants one of the eagles. A week one. I don't know if you remember that. I think that you'll actually lose this game because like the giants are going to want it like so much more see. I disagree in so spoiler alert. So i picked up the giants games. I have the eagles sweeping the giants. But like have you been listening to this show. I don't think we surprise. I'm down on the giants this year. I think that that will certainly be a hundred percent of case. And i think the way the disposition you describe an next yanni and hypothetically describe them campbell that will one thousand percent. Joe judge right like he'll have you know he'll play that light clip of you know whatever. I don't even know what clint what be. You know like the week. Seventeen game last year between billion washington and be like they stole our division. You know it won't be this like stupid. You know dumb ridiculous speech or whatever and then they'll lose because that's what they do. I agree with you. They will have that you know mantra for the game but they will lose. This is maybe the worst offensive line in the nfl. Is that fair to say challenging for that mantle in the conversation i don't know definitively is. It could be okay. So they're in the conversation. So the one of the worst offensive lines in the nfl is part of an offense that is coordinated by one of the least imaginative offense coordinators in the nfl. Who has one of the least reliable star players from a health perspective in the nfl in saquon barkley. In fact the word two days ago on on was that he thinks he'll be ready to play this sunday and week. One against the broncos like how do you think you know. This is the time for being cute with like. Oh i'm gonna report or whatever it's like that time is dead and gone like you. You have to be ready to go now save on Also behind all of this pillar of stability. You have one of the most turnover prone quarterbacks in the nfl and daniel jones. So i mean the is. That's that's all. I can really say about this team. But their offense is so bad. I mean just unbelievable. I think this could be not like the broncos game we describe but like there won't be much necessary for the like they could win this game seventeen to tent. And that that one giants touchdown comes can garbage time. That's like near the end. That makes the game the closer than it really was. I didn't they lose You disagree and find than the eagles have bi week as you see here in the making us it is is a very late by week and then they finish up with four division games as we talked about which is kind of insane but it's either. They beat the washington football team at home. Then they get revenge against the giants. They only played a few weeks. Ago are about a month ago at this point. Then they lose against washington football team in landover maryland and they end the season with a win over the cowboys to finish nine eight on the air. So wow look at me being positive about the eagles finishing having them finished with a winning record i've been saying i have them at like eight and nine I feel like maybe eight nine nine eight. i think. Maybe that's where. I'm kind of coming down on them so you have them splitting every division series right. Yes you actually have them winning all of the home games and losing all of the road games. You went pretty chuck here. In in that sense. I would say i like this game that i'm just making up right now. If i have to pick two wins and two losses that i could see the on the other way you know. Kind of plus minus year The two wins that i could see maybe being losses outside of like obvious. Things i would say the falcons just because we we still don't told you no. I'm like just for nfl perspective. Very interested to see the falcons this week And then i guess. I know i said the lions i mean i. I'm not trying to throw you know. Hope at the raiders but like maybe in enemy license. Maybe so that's i'm talking. Oh crap i. I think they'll lose it. You know what. I mean. Because the saints i trust on more than i trust jon gruden. So that's why like. I could see the falcons raiders games. Maybe be the other way losses that you had for the guys that i could see. Maybe gone the other way. I mentioned the forty niners..

They're all putting the show on you guys They deserve so many. thanks and honestly supporting them. is much more important than supporting us because Hose come and go but those guys are the ones that put the show on every week and do everything for us show next caller. You just want to get this one over with dave from texas or you talking about a tangible dangelo yeah rip the band aid off as you wish. Yeah oh dangelo what you got for us today. What script you gonna read for us. Yeah hello guys. Thank you for taking my call. Okay here is my argument. And my syllogism one. Dna is a molecule that stores esam information to make proteins. Which are malaysia disagree. I disagree with that already disagree as it already finished one. Can i make dangelo angelo tangent. Tangible my friend no dude stop from his one. Listen this many calls by a dangelo and you just go into this tirade and you think if you can just say it faster that somehow it's gonna work road so john with your first your your i promise is the use of the word information and dna does not store information. Dna is a chemical that other chemicals. Interact with the the word. Information is is the is simply something that we use as a mental model for how that happens and it does not mean the same thing as information that you and i used for instance. A map is information how to get from point eight point be so if you're that's my my entire objection to the word used the information dna chemical. Yes it's a chemical that other chemicals interact with yes but there is no data and there is no information involved. it's just chemicals you are unneeded now attend gelo. What is your response to gyms various specific response to your claim dental or mation. You're cutting in and out and we're getting mostly silent on your tabula. I'm sorry try again. Please ok- okay. I'll try again. I disagree with james claim. I it is known that dna stores instructional assembly information. Which is too so again. My objection my angelo shopping me. Why kind of the us. At the point where i have a disagreement so that we can talk about the specific disagreement against allow so Specifically information is defined as facts provided or learned about something or some want the second definition is what is conveyed a represented by a typical arrangement or sequence of thanks. And if you mean information is that second one then you are correct. But i don't think you do. I think you're thinking that it's facts. Provided orange about something in other words facts about how to how to build a human being and that is not correct it is simply an arrangement of chemicals. What okay so. What is the function of dna. It's a chemical that other chemicals react with eventually build cells and animals and plants. Okay so it builds cells so it struck the assembly of proteins and it instructs to to the sequence of nuclear types. the correct. Answer when when you say instructs what exactly do you mean by. The word instructs that the sequence of new kill tights says how the sequence of amino acids will be Sambo that the sequence of how so so. Let me go back again. I'm sorry you say that it says how to do something. How does it say how do something. Because when you say you were that usually means there's information being transmitted. How is that. How how's that being transmitted. Well i'm doing well. Cl Transcription to msn rna. Antenna translation through the rival song. Which then makes the polymerization of the i. It's which then become which then become proteins. It's chemicals doing chemical stuff. Yes yes no information. There's no there there. There is no facts being stored. it's simply chemicals being store chemicals that other chemicals interact with. I agree with that. I skipped as many science classes as i could in high school. So i think this is the limit to our participant yet. Chemicals doing chemical stuff. I'm with you. I'm with you. Okay okay so how does that prove that. How does that prove your point. That there's a god again. The sequence of nucleotides must be right. You know too. Have a functional sequence of amino acids which then would fall into three deform and become functional molecular machines which proteins that sequence has to be right. And in order for you to have. You tried your needs information. Which is which is the sequence of nucleotides starting dna. Now i mean so that does not prove that only proves that as the dna work differently or the the chemicals and indiana were different that we would be formed. Differently does not prove got. It will not form a functional proteins. That is the key issue would write. It would perform different proteins. I would do different things and we would have the and if there is life at all it would be different. That's all you get out of. That is if things were different. Things would be different. That does not prove got right. Well the thing is that the sequence space is huge. Order too high for functional sequence. You have to choose amongst many possible different sequences and just give us a. What are you counting the hits and ignoring the mrs. then yeah i. I don't see what that point as well. We if i can finish my sentence than you'll know what my point is. Okay so if you have an alternative to information to intelligence sequencing the right sequence. That would be random unguided evans just to give you an example. An average sized protein has about three hundred amino acids to have a right sequence just over a third about one hundred..

Grammy winners all of this happened to them and just a whirlwind of these first two albums in the very early two thousands. but that's my favorite play period. I i don't know if they ever matched those first two albums at least to my ear. It seems like it got more overproduced. Maybe a little too slick and polished these first two albums though. Not like that to me. you've got the big rock sound. You've got the great pop element. They do what i like john. Unite talked about the dynamic shifts in songs. You know that they can start out a song really nice soft ballad with acoustic guitar piano and then build it up into that big stadium. Rock southbound chris martin. He's not for everybody but he's cut soul and he can sing and he moves easily in and out of the falsetto voice. I don't get tired of hearing him singing on every song. Because i i really appreciate his musicianship his ability to play guitar and piano. The one that really hooked me though was a song called. God put a smile on your face and it starts out with this acoustic guitar. Riff which is my thing. I love acoustic rhythm playing guitar. But it's in his open tuning and it's kind of this haunting intro. Which is the vocal and again. It's a song that builds up into something big. There's huge hits on here in my place. The scientists clocks was actually a song. They said They were inspired by the ban muse of for that song. But there's more to this album. Daylight has the bigger sound. Green is is just acoustic wanting sign really nice. Guitar almost leans into a dave matthews down a rush of blood to the head. Amsterdam is just kind of a piano bay song. There are really tight unit. I mean there's a lot of similarities to you to right. it's four guys. Sometimes that sound maybe like a youtube light. The i listened to this album of friend turned me onto it. Back in the day shoutout adrian. I love it and going through this whole list. That was an easy One for me to pick an turned out to be my number..

It's been a pretty brutal winner for most folks in the lower forty eight as they say but it is wintertime so Growing up out in washington state. Doug who are your sports teams in favor of players when you were a kid for me In baseball is probably the bat a grew up name. Everybody that played on the on the match and of course the sixty nineteen then probably put all of the baltimore not baltimore. Colts john united in that group. I mean it was a fun on time to watch of course of his own black light back then sure was. Yeah gr- now the great team. Those baltimore colt ball clubs. Now you you hurt yourself. Hurt yourself early on throwing a wiffle ball at the paper boy. Yeah it lynch tell us about. He was teasing teasing my dog. Oh man it was supposed to be doing anything. And i through the roof of all atoms as hard as i could and i felt the top and of course pack dan. I'm just for you know not even a high school pitcher yet. I didn't hadn't even played on varsity so there was no big repercussions or anything so he took me to the doctor and said you torn some ligaments in the elbow. And you know you might. You might be best not to throw for quite a while. And i didn't. Yeah i just kept throwing anyway so you know as normal people would do you. Don't pay attention doctors rate. But but you hit the guy right. Oh yeah that's the main thing and they'll you know that later on baseball Career you know Accidentally hitting somebody in the game was you know it it I was prepared for it. Yeah right having been raised a Brushback man yeah. No kidding now. You not only through baseball's in highschool but you're pretty proficient with a rifle are our high school. I had a rifle team. In fact the the tacoma city league had a rifle teams there and we were one of the best in the nation at that point and we had several people in that team that were really really good and i ended up getting scholarship to washington state university in On local team. And then i. I turned it down and wanted to play baseball. The junior college level and also is invited to the preliminaries of for the olympics in In the mid mid east they're back in nineteen sort of in a seventy six but when it was not a non medal sport at that point but one of the girls on our club made it. Oh boy yeah something to be proud of well. You weren't more drafted due to your arm injury. The paper boy incident as we'll call it. But you signed as a free agent with the mets anyway. Yeah you know the the interesting thing about that. Our team at washington state university the entire team that were eligible were taken in the draft. Pretty much everybody and that was a lot of players taking that team or a coach back. Then you know. He's going to have to scrap really scrambled to get get some players for next year. So yeah myself and another pitcher point where the only two players that were not dropped in. And we're taking his free agents myself and Tom needing fewer glinted up going with the los angeles dodgers right. We every we know. Recognize tom for sure. Now in rookie league bala kings for it your as starter but they moved into the bullpen on your next move to lynchburg right. Yeah i i wasn't happy about it. I i lead the league. The appalachian league in wins. I think and your a and maybe any pitched and all that and and then the next year get the promotion to high a screwed on the we have some good Draft picks In that starting location. And i don't think they really knew where they were gonna put me so they put me in the bullpen. Had jeff digger and jay tibbs in japan door hall. Hydra picked is. And i felt the point that i was gonna you know. They just didn't know what to do with me so i struggled a bit there as well. Now you had a third move which was a promotion to aa. And that's in jackson mississippi and your manage their by david johnson. Yeah that year. A lot of the naval got promoted to aa and Went to jackson and david was. The manager ended up winning the texas league championship that year. and yeah The the very odd thing that happened during extra-time as i was just lights out and of the the scouting department and people are getting these these reports coming in from david. Johnson cena. Who is this guy. Where'd you get this guy. This guy is just like lighten it up and the other slovene instructors who had seen the early in the year.

"A steel and you're paying for the personality of Tom Brady and for him to impart it on the football team, which is exactly what he did in Tampa Bay this year with this Super Bowl win, Tom and Michigan Grass Show, CBS Sports Radio Tommy Good evening. Hey, thanks for having me on. Of course what he got. Thank you. You made it just kind of interesting monster going around that Tom Brady is the best ever. And that's kind of in it kind of an interesting statement, And I want to ask you a few questions about that statement because I'm gonna beg to differ on that. Because you know, like Michael Jordan wouldn't say he's the best ever. He would talk about the fact that he hasn't played against Jerry West. Hasn't played against some of those other guys, right? I think we probably need to consider the fact that Tom Brady's playing in a modern era of football, but there's a lot of other like what would have happened if he had played against Michael Singletary. Or dick buckets? Oh, yeah, e. I mean, I mean, if we're going to be, but if we're gonna be fair about it, Brady played for the first 6 to 8 years of his career, where there were still rules in place where quarterbacks were getting hit. His his era. His era stretches so long he played in different styles of NFL football. The guy's been around so long and was great in both. For example, like I walked into John United his office one day when I lived in Maryland. I was doing some sales work. I walked into the was in Timonium, Maryland. I walked in an office and John United sitting at a desk. Shook his hand. I You put Johnny and itis on this Tampa Bay team. What would happen? Honestly, they they get smoked. I think it's pretty easy to be able to say Tommy is the best ever into me. You didn't bring any argument because here's the thing. You know what the quarterbacks of the sixties would have done in and like if we're just going to drop those guys in now, because that's what you're talking about, right? Is it? Well, if we drop them in right now, That's why we can't say the best ever. Okay. I mean, his little deductive reasoning. Then I would think those guys like united us like Bart Starr. Ah, you know, I'm trying. Remember some of the other, you know, like Len Dawson, right? Want to go back to the sixties? Wouldn't go back to the sixties, and you know what those guys would have done? They want a failed fabulously in this offense because their arms would have fallen off. A very quick story. My father in law is one of the best players ever. Brown University baseball football. Everything in 66 pretty sure 66 67 66. He was drafted by the FL, the NFL and Major League Baseball. And when he played a brown university, I think he told me like he threw the ball, Maybe like 100 times in a year. We're talking like 10 times a game right now at the NFL level in the sixties and the seventies. You were throwing the ball, maybe 2025 times a game, And that was if you got down because it was built around offensive linemen and running backs. Now the game is built around skill players who are quick twitch guys. So I would dare say that Tom Brady would have the ability to go play in those neophyte offenses of the sixties. There were single wing and In fact, I brought up my father in law because he was like the Ivy League player of the year and 66 ran for. I don't know 1200 yards or Something stupid like that, right? Like those offenses back then you would think that the quarterback still needed move, or it was just turn around and power football. And maybe it threw the ball a little bit. Tom Brady would've sliced and diced those defense is you put those old quarterbacks in now they would have been hurting even guys like Bradshaw, who could fling the bean a little bit and played with some really good Hall of Famers. I mean, John Stallworth, Lynn Swann. Guys like that. I don't know how that guy would have done in that now. Everybody says Well, it's not his physical and they might have been able to survive. Okay, that I could kind of by a little bit. But relative to the modern era Tom Brady bridges the gap from this fast break football that we see now to the way it was 20 years ago. And oh, by the way. He's been just as good in both And as he's gotten older, someone argued that the guy has gotten better. And one of the arguments that Tom Brady is the best ever and that these old timers aren't Is that eight years 10 years into their career, their bodies were falling apart because when you're ripping darts at halftime, and when your post game is a bucket of chicken and a six pack of beer when the game is over with It's not exactly taking care of your body in a way to where you could play great and 43 keep going, so I would submit Brady's the best your thoughts.

"Miss Brady. He's actually unbelievable. You look at Joan Davis, John United, Joe Montana. They never even reached their 40th birthday. When they change teams that they were at the end of the line. They they didn't need it. They weren't anywhere near what they were during our career. But this is this. Tom Brady is old Man River just keeps rolling along this guy and he's the Moses. Let's let the Buccaneers out of the wilderness stew, which is really quite a story, isn't it? It is. It's one of the best stories in the history of the National Football League. I'll give Montana a little bit of an odd when he went to Cannes City at one year, and they made A playoff one didn't get to a Super Bowl insurance holding women's football the way the Brady has done his first year in Tampa, which is pretty damn spectacular, But he wasn't a complete bust after he left. San Francisco. He did get to teach to the play offs and one playoff game when he was there. Just let me give us some credit and again, thanks to call out. I appreciate You're touching base. Um I didn't want to give one other note to a couple of guys who are I'm guessing, at least smiling today because even though they were not active for today's game they didn't really have much to do with today's game is matter of fact. They probably will be looked at and given credit as winners. Even though they had nothing to do with today's game, and I'm thinking of four individuals. Two quarterbacks. Two coaches. The two quarterbacks are the guys who actually beat Tom Brady on the biggest state. That would be the football where his record now goes to And unbelievable seven and three In the biggest games. The only two quarterbacks that got the better of them were Eli Manning. And Nick Falls. That's right. Nick Falls filling in for an injured Carson Wentz led the photo off the Eagles to a victory over the Patriots. Now, no knock on Brady threw for 500 yards in the game. His team lost, but it wasn't because of him that they lost. But Nick folds his team won that game and he got the M V P Eli Manning. Same thing when they got beat. It wasn't all allies doing giant defense came up pretty damn huge in both of those two games and A ball court against a player's helmet, one of the lucky your place in the history of the National Football League, But the Giants did what they did. Beat him twice and two coaches, one of which doesn't need the accolades because I think he's probably done coaching, and it might be just retired from the national populated his coaching days were over, and he took over the Jacksonville JAG front office. Don't know if there's gonna be another team offering that kind of a gig to Tom Coughlin, who got the better of Tom Brady Bill Bell, checking the Patriots twice. With the Giants in the Super Bowl and One guy who's unemployed night think he's got plans to coach again someday. Doug Peterson, who was let go by the Eagles this year, and they had a God awful season, and Peterson was part of that. He's gotta explain it to whoever wants to potentially Iram for his next job, but losing the Job. But watching Tom Brady beat another coach Pete Andy Reid, his mentor. For the second time, Reed got beat when he was head coach of the Eagles by the Patriots and Tom Brady, and he's gonna lose again here today. So Doug Peterson did something that Andy Reid couldn't do. And that's be Tom Brady. In the biggest game, I hope WP gets another chance to coach in the national Football lady did what he did the Eagles at a lightning in the bottle year, but It wasn't a fluke that they won the Super Bowl, but they didn't quite live up to performance prior to die idea, and they unfortunately went backwards afterwards, and that's why Peterson Is unemployed, but people look back and go. Hey, if you could beat Tom Brady can coach our football team candy. Hey, I got a lot of people think. Thanks to all my guys who got down on me and made this a palatable show and especially my producer kept outstanding job out of him. I've talked about this game next weekend. I proudly admit I'm a foodie and as much as I love food spending all day, the grocery store shopping, not my thing. So while back I was so excited to discover in perfect foods, it's an online grocer, and they sell sustainable, affordable groceries and they deliver them right to my door..

"You needs to be said anyway. Here's Jodie Mack J. Mac tangled year on CBS Sports Radio. Mahomes just completed about a 25 yard pass, but then get sacked on the next play. I was gonna praise the Chiefs because loan behold, they went no hard love and say I wasn't up to the line of scrimmage. You had too little too late. Tampa's defense must be playing some pretty good defense in the secondary because my homes is holding on to the football. Uh, he's not gun shy. So you know, if Steven, it's a small window, he's willing to throw it. Gotta be like no window. So tip of the cap to the bucks in their secondary coverage here in this Super Bowl, Gentlemen coming to a live from the rocket mortgage studios want to see your loan options, just payments and closing costs online in real time. Rocket can, um A couple of things here. A Zoe come down the homestretch number one. I'm going to get the one call I have on hold here in just a second. I almost went the entire show without a call at one called earlier. He called right. Right. The top of the show. He wanted to get on. He thought was gonna take a phone. Call the prince 10 minutes of the show. I didn't and young up s o, I I do have one call Alan. Please sank. I will get you up just so I can continue to say. I've never done a phone call this show. I've never done a show except for ones where you come on after a live event locally and you're on the air for 20 some odd minutes. Oh, I've had a couple of those in my career just to be able to say that I did a show and earn the paycheck that I got s. I've had some of those but a four hour show without a phone call never before and it's not gonna happen here, balance there when I go to him, But first I want to respond to one of my Twitter. There's a couple of people have tweeted during to show my comment about. I can't believe 10 City isn't going to a no huddle offense, and I put it on Andy Reid and rightfully so I think, but my tweets tweeted me and said Yeah, This one's on Eric be enemy. He might not even have that in his playbook. He looks overrated and overmatched tonight. Um, I didn't get Eric be enemies. A very good offense coordinator and I can't believe that once again, we've got to another off season and he hasn't even been offered a head coaching job. But this isn't going to help us rise make going forward that they were woefully out Coach tonight and temples. Defense is really good. And as of right now, with six minutes to go, they do not have a touchdown. Three field goals has been the extent of their offense. That is on Eric. The enemy does make a pretty good point. All right, Alan, from Toronto's up on CBS Sports Radio, Alan Thanks for helping me, your boy the over the telephone calls. Another interesting they just made. They made a fair catch at the six yard line. Now, if you're anywhere, B Deep sea, the 10 yard line and the goal line. Why not just let it bounce and you're going to get a touchback? Why make a fair catch of the six yard line? So that's another fatal mistake that pin Kansas City made? Don't you agree with Syria? Absolutely. Um, Let's see the temper of a box of bomb. They dominated the game on offense on defense and on special teams. So this is a beat down of Pretty outrageous proportions. They won the game in every single phase, an aspect of it. You're breeze has one year left on his contract. Do you think he's hit the end of the line? Jerry? Do you think he's gonna under that contract? If I was him? I would honor that contract, you know, and being never know. So don't don't know if you saw it or heard about it yesterday. I know. I mentioned my show. We had Bobby a bear on. Um and Bobby talked about it in that Drew Brees. Just yesterday, it was announced that he had read done his contract for the upcoming season schedule to make 20 some odd million. I think it's in the 25 range. I could know exactly what it is. I don't off to top my head, but he got his contract redone to be paid the veteran minimum For the upcoming year. Nobody takes a cut from 25 million to a million and change If he's planning on coming back and playing now they can always redo the contract again. He can take less. And then if he changes his mind and Saint, Shake your money, decide you want to come back all then they can re sign him to a contract. But in the meantime, what is the reason that he did it was to give them salary cap flexibility if they wanted to do something else. It's highly unlikely in my eyes that he decides after making this move to change his mind and say, Yeah, you know, I really want to pay a play again. And, yeah, I'm still Drew Brees and I still worked like $25. Million s. Oh, my guess is that this is the step Toward retirement. He may have other things that he's wants to get in order before he actually goes about and makes the official announcement. But I think it is only a matter of time before we hear that Drew Brees. I's packing it in, and we'll probably be part of the Sunday night broadcast team with Cris Collinsworth and now Michael's neck here. And James West, and his stock has plummeted to near zero. It's plummeted faster than and Ron It's unbelievable. $5109 last year, and I guess he who's gonna want him who's gonna give him any kind of contact is his one year contract is up Right now. He's a free agent. But tonight in the water, you know 76 teams for the Buccaneers, and he's throwing 88 interceptions and 50 crumbles and Just last year last year for the Bucks, he was he's through 30 interceptions and vast at 10 fumble, So you know it's Can You see anybody wanting on Chicago's gonna probably looking for a quarterback that I don't think they would want him. That's how much teams out there. They're gonna be looking for a quarterback. Um, again something that I heard a red yesterday that the pop up, uh, the saints actually. Thought that he did a nice job this season in practice, and they were pretty impressed with him. I think those air like false sentiments because given the chance when breeze went down, they went to Taysom Hill is their quarterback. You've got Jamis Winston there and you're elevating your secret weapon. Guy was not really a quarterback, but you've used amid quarterback and you put him in his your starting quarterback. And one of the games they lost in the second half. I saw every single snap of it because it was against the Eagles and Taysom Hill stunk, Hey, was woefully outplayed by Jalen hurts. A rookie was in his third or fourth start in the NFL to time. So I think they were. I think he was a good soldier that here for him. I think he did what they asked him to in practice, so they wanted to try and give me a helping hand for teams. There may have interest them by saying, Hey, James did everything we asked. We still think he can play. Yeah, Okay. But then when you had the chance to play, and why didn't you plan so I would be set? Very surprised. I don't know if I'd go so far. It's a shock but very surprised if he went back to New Orleans, even with a chance to compete. Right starting job. He's going to sell his wares on the open market, and I think you'll probably be in the league and be a back up again next year, But I don't think he's getting anyone's starting job going into the season. Miss Brady. He's actually unbelievable. You look at Joan Davis, John United, Joe Montana. They never even reached their 40th birthday. When they change teams.

I was a John United fan and, uh, Super Bowl five was All the more and Dallas and Baltimore Colts ended up winning on a last second field goal.

Everyone was really gracious with their time and a lot of really, really good interviews for me. I enjoy the perspective of former players. S o. Tyrone Poole and Ike Taylor. They both had interesting. I guess we'll say terminology and especially Tyrone, and the way he puts things, and he was there both great sense of humors and Both, you know, one Super Bowl, So it's It's cool toe experience that that conversation as well. But my favorite conversation of the week is actually Peter King. I'm a big fan of his work. And I read. I read a lot of his work and his insight into the game, not only for having done it for so long, but just the way he looks at the game is very interesting to me. It's not just the finances of it while he did talk about the financial loss and things like that. He just has a really interesting perspective of the game. And I just appreciated his conversation and the information the knowledge And 20 was the number and that stuck out. Absolutely. He was not afraid to top. I believe it was Adam Schefter. Uh, Adam Schefter took the over on 18. And you said no, Let's just go with 20..

"You're listening to the best of WTMJ conversations. John work here here. This is a special edition of WTMJ conversations with Packer legend Bill Curry. One of the guys who played in Super Bowl one and Super Bowl, too. That's where we pick up the conversation. Did you all realize how big a deal this new championship, which would become to be known as the Super Bowl, actually was? I think maybe some of us did. I was in my second year and I was really struggling. I was not a very good player. The only reason I was playing it because Kim Bowman dislocated shoulder. Out busting kid was great. He helped me at every turn. That time. I was just fighting toe. Try to do my job, So I wasn't aware of much of anything except Snapping the ball and trying to block my man and trying to protect Mark Star. So I wouldn't thinking about the historical significance or the merger of the league's or what a monumental cavalcade this was become every year. I don't think any of us were. But I know what I'm coach Lombardi in his wisdom, and I think also because he was getting phone calls from NFL owners. Say you cannot lose this game bets on he told us that on he put us on a knee the day before the game, he said. Anybody that sneaks out tonight It's gonna cost you $2500. Well, that's salary was 12,500 would have been a healthy 20% of my salary. And so I wouldn't I didn't have anywhere to go in l a anyhow. But He also said, Oh, by the way, one other thing. If you do that, you decide to do that you'll never play it down another down in the National Football League. That's how important it Woz. It was real important. Do you have a favorite NFL memory from your playing career? I do. It's an emotional It's a sentimental thing. I think people might think it's strange. I had always been a huge sports fan. Had not been interested in football at all. Even though I was on the high school football team. I wasn't a very good plan. I was running around as a junior just kind of out there, and my dad said, Let's watch this. NFL title game. And I have never watched an NFL game all the way through. It was the 1958 Coast versus Giants game that became known as the greatest game ever played. And, of course, John Unite us was the focal point. So when I was introduced at Memorial Stadium in Baltimore, Maryland before what was called the world's largest outdoor insane asylum, and heaven knows it, Woz. Um, when I was if you won the toss and got the ball, the the winning toss in those days virtually always ensured that we get the ball first. Well, that meant the offense of unit was gonna be introduced first, and that meant that the center was going to run out first. So I would stand there palling at the ground. The guy's holding me by the arm and the public address announcer. This is now the starting lineups and from Georgia Tech. That center number 50 Bill Curry. Maybe a smattering of polite across my wife and my mom. Couple others and I'd run out the middle of the field and over to the side and set the huddle and then nine more players would be introduced. Similarly, some cheers louder than others. E got to tell you. I choke up when I tell them this And then they enhance who would say and at quarterback. From Louisville number 19. And that would be the last thing that you would hear the Louds and they measured the desk. It was the equivalent to jet engines. You didn't hear another sound, and that old guy wobbled out to the middle of the field came over and stuck his head in the huddle. And there are 10 of us in there with me, and we played together six years our offensive line, and everybody in the huddle was already crying at the game was over. The opposition just didn't know it. Those that's the moment that I remember most in the NFL. We didn't have that kind of thing in Green Bay. I would have felt the same way about Bart Starr. Um I love Bart like a brother. But just to be a part of that process, and it was a special time because The done dog dockworkers. Our salaries were about like they're so the identification factor between the fans and the players was incredible in those days up next, when our conversation with Bill Curry continues.

"Kind of patched himself together. Over the last two years, he's been injured, significant portions of the season. Both years they've had to lead on backup quarterbacks the last two years. Teddy Bridgewater, tastes and Hill. Even some Jamis Winston And we saw in the playoff game on Sunday night breezes, inability to throw downfield to create those chunk plays anymore and an offense. That continually shot itself in the foot, three interceptions for Drew Brees. At 42 years old. It is virtually impossible to innovation him being a better next year, and so it just feels like it is time as painful as it is. Breeze is almost without any type of criticism over the course of his entire career. Great leader, Great teammate Great in the community. He was a guy that Help the franchise turn its entire history around almost immediately help bring back the city from Katrina helped reach out to everybody in that city and try to help in many ways off the football field. The breeze is just kind of above reproach. In many ways. He took flak over the summer for a stance on Colin Kaepernick and kneeling, but I thought in a true sign of leadership Held a stance vocalized it listened to his teammates Listen to more information, remained open minded and then decided. You know what? I'm not gonna be stubborn here. If I understand now, and I willing tol to admit a wrong and to me. It doesn't matter what side of the aisle you were on on that spot. It doesn't matter to me where you stand in that argument. What matters to me is leadership is Acknowledging flaws, taking in new information and being able to set a different course when needed. And again, he showed that and I have a lot of admiration for people that don't just dig in. And refused to change and refuse to take in new information and refused to acknowledge that they could be wrong. That's a real issue in 2021 in America, the refusal to ever be wrong. So Drew Brees has been The gold standard in many ways, and also a second round draft pick that ends up holding almost every significant passing record. I mean, the guy. His career is a first ballot Hall of Famer. But What's interesting is that Drew Brees. After an amazing career at 41 years old last season for NFL 100. Was not named one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history. That was an area which Woz Reserve for the John United States, Joe Montana's Tom Brady's but also Dan Marino. Roger Star back John Elway. So breeze couldn't crack that.

"About to be that time of year again when the drama is turned up, and the moments become legendary memories. The NFL postseason begins next Saturday with every postseason game, including Super Bowl 55 right here on Westwood one. And on many of these same stations through the next five weeks, will be celebrating some of the memorable moments in postseason history. As the Colts and Giants make one final push for the playoffs. This year, we begin our look back with the memory of the game that started it all. It was a game that set the course for the spectacle we enjoy today. 1958 NFL championship was the first title game played in New York, but it's reach went far beyond the city. In the Baltimore Colts in New York Giants medic Yankee Stadium on December 28th 1958. The entire nation had a front row seat in their living rooms for a day that seemed destined for history. His Hall of Fame wide receiver Raymond Berry remembers. You got a nationwide television audience, the largest. It's ever washed NFL football. You got a game being played in the most Historic stadium on the American continent, Yankee Stadium and you got John United this quarterback who is going to make history. You got the New York Jan's with two assistant coaches named Vince Lombardi and Tom Landry. And you got a whole fame coach and we've you back running us. You got a cast of characters here you have eight or nine or 10 or 12 Future Hall of Famer is on the field in one afternoon. By final count, it was 17 future Hall of Fingers. One of them, the giant Sam Huff recalled the build up of the irresistible force lining up against the immovable object. You had the highest scoring offense going against the Best Defense and National Football League with less points scored against We had the classic matchup of offensive defense, and it's quite obvious it was almost obvious it was going to end up in a tie game. Baltimore's game plan, according to Bury was fairly simple. Our head coach, we view bank was one of the greats. Before the game We view bank told us and told John. You noticed I didn't never knew this for years. He told John Donne on to throw and throw a lot way not gonna make a living running against that New York John defense, and so John went in the idea of throwing. We threw a whole lot and way were kissed them beginning the game. We kissed him to the end of it, And so John cared out the structure. He threw me through a lot. The game did include plenty of United's passes on eye popping 40 attempts, which generated 322 yards through the air. We're also six lost fumbles four by New York But what people remember most was a late game drive by Unite us from his own 14 yard line with Baltimore, trailing 17 to 14. Re straight completions to Raymond Berry brought the Colts to the New York 13 Yard line with seconds to go and brought Colts placekickers Steve Myron on to try and tie the game 10 seconds left to go where we kept the field off 40 yard line right here in the cold. Hi. It's good. Thanks. Segments. Maira makes it but seconds left to go play some ball games. 17 17. How about that? Tied at 17? With the game pocket? All zeros met a pro football first sudden death overtime. Although United says that someone had forgotten to tell the players we never discuss anything about an overtime. Nobody ever said anything. Matter.
