"Where some of golf's best Step on the course at the Wells Fargo Championship. Live coverage continues at three Eastern 12 Pacific on CBS, Karl Dixon for John marks today. I'm talking about a variety of things, guys, you can chime in, by the way, 855 to 1 to four CBS That's 4 to 27 as we come your way live from the Rocket Mortgage studios. Um As we've been talking about the draft, and you know the NFL is King. I love it. I love the fact that As we move past the season every year, and we get to the Super Bowl and everybody whether your team is playing in it or not, you know, and it's one of those things where we always have this. This Feeling that I can't wait to football starts and for the NFL, it's It's an ongoing thing all year around. It just doesn't stop. And if you're following your favorite team, or you're following NFL news, like, for example, this and Roger's story that was talking about earlier. It just doesn't stop. So you know, you get past the Super Bowl, and then you start already thinking about how do you fix your team? If your team didn't get there, there are only two teams to get there. And even that seems it got there still have to think about how they're going to either get back or what I'm going to do to fix their team to maybe win one. And so you start this process of getting ready for the draft, you know, and then you get to the combine, and we don't have one this year because of the pandemic, But You know all that information about all the guys is potentially going to see in the draft. It's all exciting. And then you get to, you know, team starting to make free agent moves and then the draft and you started looking for a team and you started. Yeah, and then guess what happens this weekend. Or this week. Guess what happens this week, The NFL schedule comes out. Wednesday. I'm site. Can't wait. I want to see where Teams. They're gonna play when they're going to play. Now we know home in away games already. We know that But what's it look like on the schedule? What makes your particular schedule hard to maneuver? And when we talk about the draft and all that took place, and it was a great draft, and I think again, this was a fun draft because you had all the quarterbacks and stuff a top up top atop the draft we were talking about and everybody was somewhat familiar. Hardcore college football fans and I'm one You know was was diving in his heart as I possibly could. And talking to people around the league that I know in talking to college folks that I know because I wanted to much information as I possibly could get. But when you talk about these quarterbacks And you talk about can't miss. Because you hear that? You hear things like, can't miss. And there have been a couple of guys that have come prior to Trevor Laurence. In the draft of the last 30 years that we can't miss guys. John Elway was the first one Where, when they started to do all of the stuff that they do now, when it comes to the analytics of football and the makeup of an individual because a lot of stuff didn't happen, yeah, sixties and seventies just didn't He's a good football player, you know. Looks like he drinks a six pack on the weekend and let's draft him. Now there's so much information that goes into all these players and even this year. Ah, lot of the information that we normally get. I don't think we got this year because of the pandemic and because of the inability to have the combine, But what that said. No, it was the first one. Right. Then you had a guy named Peyton Manning come along. Can't miss They had a guy named Andrew Luck. Who was off the charts and injuries cut his career short. But people forget Andrew Luck stepped in the cult situation and boom, They're right back in the playoffs. After Ah Hall of Famer and legendary quarterback and Peyton Manning. You know, they decide to move on and we know he moves on it goes it ever won Super Bowls. And then now it's Trevor Laurence. So when you talk about can't miss the one element that you have to add into, that is Where they go. See, I think Trevor Laurence and for those again who don't know I do. Radio in Atlanta I I saw Trevor Laurence in high school. We went to Carter's Real high school, which is north of Atlanta. And I remember the first time that I got word of you gotta come See this kid play Duke's, um hey, spent pretty special I think was his junior year in the same thing happened with Justin Fields. What? The hairs in high school north of Atlanta. And I was like, Okay, because I'm a big high school football fan, and I like seeing the kids make that jump to the next level. And then you know the see if they have the ability to get to the NFL, which is rare. By the way. It's rare when you see a kid. It was really good in high school, and then they go to college and excel the way these guys did, and then their top picks. But I saw him and I was like, Okay. He is special. You knew his arm talent was special in high school when you guys have seen if you watch any of this stuff you're seeing a guy here in there. Maybe you grew up with a guy You want panic way. So Trevor Laurence has had all the physical tools. But where you end up also dictates whether you can't miss or not. And he's going to Jacksonville. A lot of things I don't know about Jacksonville. There's a lot of uncertainty, but any time you are as talented as a guy like Trevor Laurence, you go to the top of the draft. You're always going to a team that either rebuilding or that is just playing out Terrible. And that's pretty much the case right now, so there's a lot of work to be done. But this whole can't miss thing if his talent is able to outweigh some of the deficiencies of the team, and even when they get stuff wrong if he's as good as we think he is. Down the road. They'll be really good and he'll be somebody will be talking about Trevor goes to the Jags. Justin Fields goes to Chicago with a little bit later than I thought he would. I thought he's gonna go earlier. It doesn't matter. Is that a good fit? And when you start talking about fit, you're talking about the coaching that an individual is going to get. The 40. Niners moved up in this draft to get trade Lance and everybody at one point you know, I was thinking Mack Jones back Jones, Mac Johnny was imagined. But I gotta tell you something. He's going to a quarterback guru. Kyle Shanahan..

"I I would be more willing to just back up the Brinks truck of picks and money for a guy like Watson that has more upside, um or unknown than than the known in a Stafford in Orion. Um Jared Golf now, you know, just a few years removed from the Super Bowl. And this is why this offseason gonna be crazy in the NFL fans. We're gonna lose our minds because it's just gonna be like what? Who went where he got traded But golf. You know you look, it is his touchdown passes and you go Okay since being picked first overall since 20 1617 he's 55 picks. Um 69 career regular season games in a couple of Pro Bowls. Problem is Tyler in the playoffs. He's not being good. So now there are rumors about golf and the Rams entertaining ideas about trading Jared Golf. Which is going to be difficult given that cap hit and the Rams are there. They're doing their part. I mean, they're making it very clear and they have been for a while that they're not that happy with your dog. They would like to move on from Jared Dogs, but you're given the market and given the quarterbacks that are kind of be available. The trade free agency, the draft I'm not so sure Team's gonna be in a rush to take that money. And you know what shocks me with that whole situation. Is Cha McVeigh. And unless the state I mean they're they're rhetoric out of it is Is pretty shocking. I mean, I don't know. Like I get it the graces genius. He's a genius like cutting that you better but maybe not like they made me E. He was embarrassed in the Super Bowl. By Bill Bala checks they couldn't move the ball. I mean, they came out and it was like they were living in their huddle. And what was the reaction to that? I I've heard that, you know, Defensive players air calling out their plays, you know, before the snap. Um that's an indictment of big data was an indictment of Jericho off You branded cooks was such an important chest piece in that offense. You lose him. Got girly move on from him. I don't know, like I'm not so sure that we should all just point the finger at the quarterback and your golf and say is terrible In the days of genius like I know that's what we're trained to think and social media. But I think we do have to kind of re frame that narrative in that argument. Wonder Okay. Maybe Chama today. Isn't that brilliant genius that we all thought he was? Because for some reason, all these players he had there either pushing them out or they're just not there anymore. And yeah, they're not. They're not the same juggernaut they once were. Tyler down our guest guys at CBS Sports Radio Karl Dixon today Tyler again creative go long tv dot com. So who got the best coaching high? Let let's let's write these coaching hires. Okay, um, in your opinion. Where where we start, We start with the Jets. Okay, they get Robert solid. And you know, he was a guy the interview for a variety of jobs. I just think the Jets culture has been bad. And even though solid might be the right guy. Is the front office going to act, right? Is the front office gonna do their part? To turn this thing around. That's a really bad situation there. I mean, you do wonder if is a coach. Any coat really going to be able to step in there and fix what's wrong? I don't I don't think so. I don't even always start. You gotta figure out what she what you got in Sam. Donald. What you're gonna do a quarterback? I mean, I kind of jumped the gun. I guess the one coach fire that I love And at first I didn't because not a lot of college coaches have made that leap and been successful. But Urban Meyer in Jacksonville, Man. I mean, That's what a situation to walk into with that with that money to spend with those picks Trevor Laurence. They've got some young talent they really do. James Robinson DJs shark. Josh, Alan and G End on the other side of the ball that they've got some pieces and CJ Anderson the corner. I feel like if a former college coat Can make the leap from, you know, controlling the program and being like a father to kids to know coaching adults. It's a weird transition that not a lot. A lot of guys can make, you know. Look at next seven in Miami, Billy Urban Meyer can do it because The situation he's inherited. It is man. I didn't ask for a better situation s. So I guess you didn't like the Dan Campbell. We're gonna but your kneecaps off and kick you in the ankles. You didn't like that. I I loved it. I loved. You know what it's one of those is like nothing else. Get yourself your water. It's just, you know, it's got punching. You need flapping your knee. It's amazing, but then Your head coach and your maybe you don't love it as much anymore, Tyler, Man Appreciate you stopping by today. Good stuff. It's gonna be a lot of fun Super Bowl next week. We'll keep an eye out on what's going on all off season and make sure you follow him. Tyler, don't appreciate you coming on, man. Thanks so much for having me anytime. Absolutely. Hey, Quick reminder..

"To the Pony Express on CBS Sports Radio. Karl Dixon today, NFL. We got a problem. We got a problem and we got to talk about it. We we gotta try to do something about it. And phone lines are open at 855 to 1 to four. CBS That's 4 to 27. You can also find me across all social media platforms on Twitter and put him up. See Dukes. And finally put him up everywhere else. Here's the deal. We just went through another. Coaching hiring cycle. In the NFL. And, um As we look at the hires that were made Again. I don't know how good any of these guys ultimately will be. I don't know if if Robert Salas, they gotta go into New York and change the culture of the Jets and turned them into a championship team could be Um, I don't know what Brandon Staley's gonna do with a very young and very good charges Team. He's got great personnel is either got to turn that thing around and get him to a Super Bowl could be But here's what I do know. This isn't about what kind of job the coaches will do. Who got the jobs? This is about How they got the jobs. Hand when you talk about the system for the NFL. And specifically, the Rooney rule, which was supposed to okay supposed to help minority hirings. Um, it just hasn't And 18 years since the Rooney rule, which is 2000 and three No more than a head Coaches of color. In the NFL. At one particular time. No more than seven general managers. Now I'm gonna run down what happened this year, because actually the general managers On. You talked about hiring people of color black folks, Okay, black men who are in the NFL for the most part who are grinding who are not getting opportunities because of for whatever reason. And you look at the jobs that were open. This year, There was seven jobs actually was six originally. And then the Eagles job came open when Doug Peterson parted ways with the Eagles. And so now, you know, Nick Syriani takes that job We've been talking about. But What's going on in the NFL. So so let's go back and talk about these hiring cycles. Not 15 years ago. Let's talk about the last three. So in 18. There were seven openings, okay? Season ends Black Monday happens, firings happen. And you had six of those seven openings field by white coaches. And then the Cardinals hired Steve Wilkes as I mentioned earlier in the show, Wilkes was then fired the next year. One year later, that was 2018. It was also the year in which people start talking about a guy named Eric the enemy as a guy that down the road. He's he's probably going to get a job. And for those who don't know the enemy, is currently the offensive coordinator for the Kansas City Chiefs. He's 51 years old. Played nine years in the league back in the early nineties, Always for 2000. He's been assistant coach in the league since 06. And now he's helped lead the scan city chiefs back to the Super Bowl, which will happen next weekend against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. But that's being in his background. But we started talking about that. And then in 2019. The coaching cycle was dominated by pretty much offensive minds. Okay, and the reason behind this And I think this is very important. Is because the NFL has trended this way. The NFL has trended towards. We want guys that work with quarterbacks. We want guys that call plays on the offensive side because the NFL has trended that way. And just to give you an example, you know, in 2018, or 2019, all for the teams that played in the FC in NFC title games. We're top eight in offensive efficiency, which means they score points. They scored the red Zone. They had good offenses. And so this is where the league has trended. Right? And so even in 2018, you know those teams all they all finished in the top five. We're talking about offensive efficiency. Um, this year if you want to know Crackers and cheese for wanting to top two seeds. She's got their Packers didn't This is where the league is going so in 2019 in the coaching cycles dominated by offensive minds. There were eight vacancies. Six. Airfield by white coaches. And then you had Brian Flores, who went to the Dolphins, right, You look at that. And so you're saying Okay, one black head coach in 18, then five the next season. Then you have Brian floors He's still in Miami. As we speak. And then all the other hires for the most part. Why coaches And here's the thing, guys, you get to 2020 and you start realizing. Okay, well, at some point, some of these coaches we've been talking about are going to get an opportunity. And this year you look at the hiring cycle. And you see how they shook out. And the last job standing was the Houston Texans. The Lions and the Falcons and the Jets and the Jags and the Chargers and the Philadelphia Eagles all made their hires. And with the Texans job being the last job out there, in the scenario that's playing out with Shawn Watson. Everybody thought well. Texas just have to hire black coach that that's that's what's gonna be He'll be happy with that. It's not about hiring a black coach. Because David Kelly's been in the league for 27 years. And he's just now getting his opportunity. Just now. Now. Everyone that I've spoken with the few people that know that I know that no David Collie say he's a hell of a guy. That he's a good man. They wish him nothing but the best, and all of those things are true, but that's not the conversation..
