"They did some cool stuff where they're really establishing him a couple of weeks ago they were just dumping off to Julio constantly. And one of those losses. It was like one of the last two games that they lost where they were just snapping the ball and throwing it to him. They used that as a setup to kind of mess do some kind of high low stuff with some of the Seattle defenders and zone. Led to some big gains to Mike Evans today, which, you know, it's cool that all this stuff is happening now. They're taking some of the stuff that they were doing. They're now utilizing it as a weapon towards the latter end of the season, but Gary, that was the worst. It was the worst trick play that I've ever seen in my life, and I don't think it's even remotely close. I love the idea because it really is something that someone who's half watching the game possibly after like 7 beers in the crowd would be like, they're not even covering Brady on this wildcat. Just throw it to them. And that's fine. As like an option, but they did cover them on that place so basically you had you'd learn fournette not only thrown to Tom Brady who is covered, but the throw they asked him to make was like, that's when you draw up at the pro day. That's like, that's like opposite it was not the degree of difficulty. And I don't know, surely they didn't tell Leonard fournette like you have to throw it on. Or what? It was his poor decision too, but man, what a mess. You were asking your running back, so just in case maybe some of you hadn't seen that play, maybe some of you are German and opted not to watch this game or some of you just didn't feel like waking up at 9 30. Maybe you were a Seahawks fan, right? And you didn't feel like waking up at 9 30 or no. You got 6 30. 6 30. Yeah. Goodness gracious. Dad, body clock, yep. Oh my God. But Leonard fournette, Tom Brady is basically on the sideline and Leonard fournette is rolling out to the opposite the hash opposite the sideline. I wouldn't ask Zach Wilson to make that throw. Tom Brady is 46 and he's being covered by Tariq woolen who might end up being the defense of freaky of the year. The whole thing was spectacular. It was just so rich. And God, why would you ever throw the ball to a 46 year old man? Why? I don't know. It's a little comic relief in a day that it was. Look, this went really well for the box. This was, I thought the best they've looked since the since the opening game.

Golf Fans Just Want the Best Players to Play
"That's it. End of story, then you don't have to worry about it. I mean, I know he's screwed with Tiger, creating his own tour of the Rory tour whenever people want to call it, but I don't know, man. The thing about Rory is like, still got Greg off ahead of him. It goes without saying, but he's not 21. Right. Or whatever. There's going to be all sorts of people coming up. So like, what's this all going to look like? Their skin probably have to be a marriage in this deal. The rumors on the street this week was John Ron was going. Like people were like popping off. There's a top ten. He's pissed at the rural tour. He doesn't want to play. Everybody thought it was wrong. I guess Ron came out and said fake news, not true. But there's more people are going to go, right? At some point, there's going to be some mergers, so maybe he's playing his cards. Maybe that's the deal. Maybe you talk shit the whole time. They were like, God, we're going to have to really pay this dude to kind of like, you know, come over to the dark side or negotiate or whatever. Who knows? I have no idea what's going to happen, but as a golf fan, I want the best guys playing plane in like mcelroy, what he thinks about the writer cop. I mean, I don't need to be rude, but it's totally irrelevant because the writer cup is run by the PGA of America, not the PGA Tour. And it's run by writer cup Europe, right? They have no say on who's on the American team. So if a couple of the guys make it, who cares? And as an American fan, I want the Americans to win. I'm not a freaking traitor, I want us to have the best team possible. So why wouldn't I want that? So then banning American guys hurts the American team, then banning Euro guys does it really hurt the Euro team at all. That's true. It's a good point. The thing that I really don't understand with all of this is that so you've got Rory you got Rory McIlroy in these guys talking against the live, okay? And you got guys that went to live. And you got PGA Tour players that went to live. And by the way, there are a couple guys on the PGA Tour that are playing this week by our boy, Jimmy walker, who's a friend of the pot, Jimmy walker, a great guy. And he's playing this week at the Leonard fournette championship out there in Napa Valley. And he's only playing because he was 54th in career money. 5 four. And four guys ahead of him went to live on the career money list. So he moved to number 50 and got a one time exemption to use on the PGA Tour, right? Because you get an exemption for top 50 career money, you get an exemption. Is that into everything or how does that happen? That's a full year. That is a full year. So you get a one year full year. If your top 50 career money, you get a one year full year career, you get a one year exemption. So like David toms is used one river. He was talking about that on FTP. Yeah. But there's a top 25 in the top 50. So Jimmy went from 54 to 50, so he had a one time exemption for an entire year and he's using it. This week, we're using it this year. He's playing the entire year, which that's helped a bunch of guys. Which I think is cool. Even though the guys that ended up leaving, obviously, are kicked out and banned forever, but whatever. Well, until they merge, wish they will merge, they will merge. This is ridiculous to not think that the lip tour and the PGA Tour will figure something out. They will. Norman and monaghan will run on the beach together hold hands and bathing suits and the world will be fine and a year probably. But until then, we've got to figure it out. And yeah, the top 50 career money list. That's kind of an interesting deal with all these guys going to live. It's opening more places up on tour for career money. Yeah, I mean, I love Jimmy walker like, I know your boys with Sam and he was on our parties and FTP guy and every time I look at his Instagram, he's like, here's this new grill. Here's the steak, reverse Sierra, like garlic butter, like I don't give a fuck. I wouldn't even know he was a golfer. I thought he was like the guy that does the sprinkles the salt. Yeah, I thought he was like the white southern Texas guy version of the guy that does that. But all of a sudden, I see pictures of him in 7 irons. He's like, here's my 7 iron swing and I was like, who gives a fuck? I was like, well, now I know why, because he's top 50 and he's practicing now. He's in an internment. He thought he was going to play nothing. Jimmy would Jimmy would Jimmy would probably agree. And I was like, well shit, now we gotta look at 700 swings instead of how to cook a delicious steak, but I'm here for, I'm here for regardless. I can't handle 7 iron and I can't cook a great steak, so. Yeah, there we are. So how many events did you play when you're in your year on the PGA Tour? Probably 30. You can play over 30 in one year. Did I

Don't you think? <Speech_Music_Male> Good <Speech_Music_Male> question. <Speech_Music_Male> I mean, you'd put a <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> Seattle number 32 <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> on this list, you'd put their <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> number one wide receiver <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> above Marquis <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Brown. Yep. <Speech_Music_Male> But if we <Speech_Music_Male> flip quarterbacks, <Speech_Music_Male> Seattle would be a lot higher <Speech_Music_Male> on this list. <Speech_Music_Male> Number 13. <Speech_Music_Male> Number 18, <Speech_Music_Male> the Pittsburgh <Speech_Music_Male> Steelers. <Speech_Music_Male> Really <Speech_Male> simple when I look at <Speech_Male> this team, rich, it's all about <Speech_Male> the quarterbacks. <Speech_Male> How long will Mitch <Speech_Male> trubisky fend off? <Speech_Male> The inevitability <Speech_Male> of <SpeakerChange> Kenny Pickett. <Speech_Male> All right, that's a good <Speech_Male> question right there for the Pittsburgh <Speech_Male> Steelers. What <Speech_Male> are they going to do with their quarterback <Speech_Male> spot? <Speech_Male> I think it will definitely <Speech_Male> be trubisky. <Speech_Male> I know that <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> Mike Tomlin <Speech_Male> is <Speech_Male> being coy and making his <Speech_Male> announcement. I think <Speech_Male> it's going to be Kenny Pickett <Speech_Male> at some point. <Speech_Male> And, <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> you know, <Speech_Male> the first game <Speech_Male> is in Cincinnati. <Speech_Male> You're not starting <Speech_Male> a rookie there. <Speech_Male> Next game against New England, <Speech_Male> you're not starting a rookie <Speech_Male> there either because that's <Speech_Male> how Belichick <Speech_Male> just eats <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> quarterbacks for <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> sport. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> That is the burning <Speech_Male> question is <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> or I guess writ <Speech_Male> large is willed <Speech_Male> Mike Tomlin <Speech_Male> have <Speech_Male> a losing season for the <Speech_Male> first time. <Speech_Music_Male> A lot of that. <Speech_Male> I think they're going to be better than <Speech_Male> people think and I think <Speech_Male> will be better than <Speech_Male> people think. <Speech_Male> <Speech_Male> I think they will have a winning <Speech_Male> season. And I think they're better <Speech_Male> than 18 on your list, <Speech_Male> Chris. <Speech_Male> Are you getting the playoffs then? <Speech_Male> I don't know, I don't <Speech_Male> think so. No, I'm <Speech_Male> taking them out of the playoffs. <Speech_Male> I think they do miss <Speech_Male> it, but I don't think they have <Speech_Male> a losing record. Who's <Speech_Male> next Christmas? Number 17, <Speech_Male> I had a tough time coming <Speech_Male> up with one for this team. <Speech_Male> It just goes to how <Speech_Male> little we're talking about <Speech_Male> them at all. It's the Tennessee <Speech_Male> Titans. <Speech_Male> And when I think about what <Speech_Male> they lost in the off season, <Speech_Male> they lost AJ Brown. <Speech_Male> So who will be <Speech_Male> this team's playmaker <Speech_Male> outside of <Speech_Male> Derrick Henry? Trailer <Speech_Male> Burke's. I answered <Speech_Music_Male> it for you. <Speech_Music_Male> Really? Yes, I <Speech_Music_Male> think that he hasn't <Speech_Music_Male> shown much. I <Speech_Male> know that. I know that. <Speech_Male> I think Trey Burke's <Speech_Male> will be that playmaker <Speech_Male> outside of <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Derek Henry. <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> Interesting. He's got <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> the comp of AJ Brown. <Speech_Male> I think he's going to be <Speech_Music_Male> damn good, man. <Speech_Music_Male> I <Speech_Male> like him. The burning question <Speech_Male> for me for the Tennessee <Speech_Male> Titans is, <Speech_Male> you <Speech_Music_Male> know, <Speech_Music_Male> is this the end of tanu? <Speech_Music_Male> Is this the end of his <Speech_Music_Male> run? And does <Speech_Male> Malik Willis get some run <Speech_Male> in there if Tannehill <Speech_Male> struggles again? I don't <Speech_Male> know. That's going to be an interesting <Speech_Male> Mike verbal <Speech_Music_Male> conundrum <Speech_Music_Male> all year <SpeakerChange> long. <Speech_Male> All right, last one. And <Speech_Male> I'm putting this team <Speech_Male> here just because there's <Speech_Male> a lot of question marks heading <Speech_Male> into the season. I do <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> think <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> they might <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> be higher, <Speech_Music_Male> <Advertisement> you know, once we get the season <Speech_Male> working along it's the <Speech_Music_Male> Miami Dolphins. <Speech_Music_Male> And <Speech_Male> question for them is, <Speech_Male> well, tua <Speech_Male> B as good as tyreek <Speech_Male> hill is saying. <Speech_Male> Bingo. <Speech_Music_Male> Spot on. Because <Speech_Male> tyreek hill is really <Speech_Male> saying that he's amazing, <Speech_Male> and we really haven't <Speech_Male> seen that yet, so <Speech_Male> as we head into <Speech_Male> the season, <SpeakerChange> this is the <Speech_Male> big question. That is <Speech_Male> it for the Miami Dolphins. <Speech_Male> Well, two would be as <Speech_Male> good as tyreek hill is <Speech_Male> saying he is. <Speech_Music_Male> And of <Speech_Music_Male> course, his Mike mcdaniel <Speech_Male> going to be able to <Speech_Music_Male> <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> be the game manager <Speech_Male> as well as <Speech_Male> we think we know he's <Speech_Male> a good game plan <Speech_Male> <Advertisement> manager.

It's a Friday, which means it's time for Chris brockman to deposit what's more likely those are scenarios that are coming up later on the show. But we're going to shoehorn in another brockman segment. Can't have enough Chris brockman says very few people. Okay, yesterday in the comments. I pull a TJ. I was like reading the comments yesterday. Don't do that. Some guys said you should fire me. I was like, I also said I was the worst person in sports media. I was like, wow. Is it that one guy? I don't know, but I was like, there's a few people that really few people worse than me, right? That's what this one could say. By the way, what an attitude, not saying, I'm actually good. There's got to be people worse than me. It's just an easier way to answer it. Somebody was like, someone was like, they don't care anytime I give any of my schmuck opinions. It was something like that. I was like, you got to like one or two of them. Stop reading. No, because that's how I did it. I did it. I fell into the hole, yes. You know, I'm gonna say this though with you guys and not reading comments, it's a good thing you weren't producers on Jimmy Kimmel when somebody said, hey, I've got an idea. Let's have celebrities read the mean stuff people tweet about them. You probably would have been like, no, don't do it. It's this signature Jimmy Kimmel piece, rich. If you read the comments, if I read the comments, I would know I'm a fat, old. No one's ever called you fat. That's true. No, fat old and bald guy who doesn't know anything.

He has no choice. Well, he had a choice. He had a choice to be caught and find a new spot. He had that choice. He had the choice of being cut and find a new spot. And wind up maybe in Seattle or sit around the house and run the risk of no one would come get him. Right. He made the choice of I could stay put and help these guys out. I love the teammates. I love my guys. I'm going to do it. And I'll check my ego at the door. And I will help train Lance. And I will walk around and my guys love me. I love them. I'm not walking around here less than? I know my value. I know who I am. I know how insanely hot I am. You know, and so, yeah. I still have to say it a little bit higher register. Maybe it's gonna work out after all. We've reached a higher register point of like, maybe it's gonna work out after all. I mean, we need to see it. I mean, they have a tough first month. And so put up the schedule. Put up the schedule. Put it up on the scoreboard here on the rich eisen show the first two games you have. Excuse me, who's number 32 on your burning questions? Top 32 teams, one through 32, on Seattle. And where are the bears on that list? I think. Okay. Those are their first two opponents. I get it. Seattle. Then it's let's ride. Let's ride on Sunday Night. Okay? Because clearly the NFC west can't quit Russell Wilson, nor he then, yet? And then, and then the first of two against the rams in the first 8 weeks that includes a visit by the chiefs and then trips to Carolina in Atlanta. With all due respect. In my mind, the lower half of the NFC south, these are some winnable games that Lance is going to have to go ahead and prove himself. I would expect four and four at the buy. Is absolutely check that box man. And that doesn't, by the way, four and four at the buy of Lance is healthy. Does not mean Jimmy Garoppolo starts a single game. No, no, you're totally right. So that's all I'm saying. But you drop one of Carolina, suddenly you lose an Atlanta and it's three and 5 and then they've also won 6 straight against the defending Super Bowl champs in the regular season and in the city and when you never know.

It's a Friday, which means Chris brockman is going to ask me a whole bunch of scenarios and what is more likely going into this huge college football weekend in advance of the first week of the NFL season also some brockman burning questions about teams 20 through 16 on his list of top teams in the NFL, all of that good stuff is here on this jam packed program. Brockman is sitting where he is where he normally is stationed DJ Mikey D just tapped out after Tapping in for one day yesterday good to see you again Jay felley. How are you? TJ Jefferson on this program. Good to see you, sir. It's good to be seeing the street continues, but I'm going to let you know in advance. It's a streak of my consecutive show streak. I think that no one's keeping count of. Well, the guy who employs me should know that I'm valuable enough to show up every day for him, but all I'm saying is if the mets do make the world series rich, this streak is going to come the way. Oh my goodness, all of a sudden the mets and the doctors bought by that place it out there real terrific baseball games between the mets and the Dodgers, no question about that. As the NL beginning to heat up, the Yankees are in Tampa tonight as the Yankees are only 5 in front of the braise in the lost column. You've got a lot going on the Mariners can't lose baseball games all of a sudden in the Pacific Northwest they are a terrific baseball team. Maybe they could take out the Astros for me. First Yankee's got to make the playoffs. That's how we're rolling into Labor Day weekend. My gosh, college football. You know, when I first started with the NFL network and everyone was wondering what we're going to talk about every single day of the year and football begins to start really taking off in this country. And that's really when things started to heighten, you know, was right around when NFL network began. I remember leaving SportsCenter and we were having some concepts about what we're going to talk about in late spring of that year in 2003 and somebody mentioned, how about let's break down the top cornerbacks in the NFL they were laughed out of the room. Is that being an idea to talk about on SportsCenter in late April, early May, and now the college football season, it appears, starts earlier and earlier every year, and then the games get more and more intense right out of the gate. I know the week zero game between northwestern and Nebraska and Ireland got a lot of people's attention because it was really it was the only game on the map in a way with all due respect to other teams that played each other, two big teen ten pig ten teams playing each other and in Ireland. And then now, last night, I mean, the NFL season starts in a Thursday night and now the college football season is kind of taken over the Thursday night before the NFL season Thursday night. I don't recall. They used to be just a bunch of teams and if you will, lower echelons of the FBS world or the division one world as it used to be called. Now you've got another Big Ten game last night between Penn State and Purdue. And then the backyard brawl, the first big game in the history of aqui shure stadium. Between Pitt, one of Desmond Howard's final 14s and West Virginia and last night, the intensity was late season mid season. It was lit between both games, you had a pick 6 in one, you had a puke 6 in another, you had a targeting call you had a coach who didn't go for it on fourth and one late in the game up 7 right around midfield. You had a lot of action that is causing a lot of nails to be bit down to the cuticles, and it was awesome to see last night. I mean, West Virginia in Pittsburgh, a blood sport rivalry, the backyard brawl coming down to what it came down to, and then with all due respect to you, sir, Penn State, I was rooting for the boilermakers. Last night. I know you were. I know you were. And I was a little worried. Clock management was way off, and it was just, they scored way too fast at the end. They left a whole minute. Also, backyard braw rich two teams with quarterbacks transferred in. JT Daniels goes from USC to Georgia. Now to West Virginia had a great game for the mountaineers and Keaton slovis, who was USC's quarterback. They were teammates at USC, JT Daniels and Slovaks and now he's a pit. It was awesome. Football is so, so back. It was such a great night. Nice kick-off to the weekend. And it was the first time I think 11 years those two teams have met. And growing up, that backyard brawl. Why? You know what all comes down to money with these teams, right? So the president, money I mean, I don't know. I mean, you were the same. When Pitt went to the ACC, but how about we get that back together? To schedule it right out of it. Perfect. Perfect start. Well, it's perfect for us. I don't know if I don't know West Virginia and pitfalls. I know, like you're putting seasons on the line right there. My Desmond Howard wanted to think Pitt would make the final four. That would not happen, even if they did go through the ACC undefeated with that one loss potentially. They'd have to win the ACC championship, but yeah, I see your point. And coaching our doozy lost his it's a funny thing about coaches. You can win a game and he was talking to Scott van pela after the game. It was fun. First of all, he was mad because someone at ESPN said West Virginia was going to have an advantage fan. 75%. 75 percent. He was so mad. He was heated about that so he and Scott was like, hey, I got nothing to do with this. I didn't make the prediction. But then he's like, how long are you going to give yourself to celebrate? He goes, the players will get 24 hours, 12 hours. I'm going to get zero minutes. I'm already mad. It's like these coaches just don't allow themselves rich to even enjoy just the tiniest one. I mean, that's why some of them burn out, but great start to the college football season to say the least. And we'll talk more about it on this program. 8 four four two four rich number to dial. The hot story in the NFL has been what the forty-niners decided to do to their quarterback room, which is give it to Trey Lance and trade Jimmy Garoppolo. And as John lynch explained in about a three minute soliloquy yesterday at the end of which he apologized for taking such a long time answering and I'm like, dude, I was hanging on your every word.

All right, last one. How about last year's number two seed? Who's more likely to jump up and get the buy? Bucks are chiefs. Oh, I like it. Bucks. Bucks. Absolutely, the bucks. Tom Brady, let's go. Absolutely let's go. I love truth. Absolutely, let's go. I will take the bucks. It's an easier conference. I think they have an easier division. And I think Tom Brady is going to be playing in his last year and then we're going to all see how that looks. Last year. I think so. Watch your return. How about that? How about that? How about that? Put a little sauce on it. A little song. What is this guy doing? Is that every day? Who work here when there's no one else around?

He was a dude here with David wells and whatever watering stuff. There's nothing to what? There's another guy right there is about to walk in the shot. The other guy.

That's just going to get me just going to get me more ornery, screaming at people to get off my lawn. Because that just makes me an old man. Not what I said. What? I don't have my weekly pickleball. Thank you, Jay billis. Yesterday. Slagging on pickleball. It's just something we could beat J billis and pickleball. He's got the length. He's long, rich. The issue with pickleball for tall, big time problems. No, you're supposed to just hit it. Hit it in the kitchen. And you can step into the kitchen after it's bounced. You can get in there, but if you keep it low, low, it's low is death in pickleball if you put it high, you can just like this. Come right down. I mean, if you hit it high, it's a problem. Certainly if you try to lob it over to an issue. But if you go low, it's tough. It's tough. Rich, you know, certainly if a man of a certain age, we talked to you last week, we kind of touched on a pickleball story that you didn't hear, and then I remembered that we never got back around to it. So really quickly, in Pittsburgh, there was a story that a grandmother named Meg burckhardt had sent her daughter a picture. She went looking for a pickleball game in Pittsburgh, went up to a court, found a couple guys jumped in the game with him. She texts her daughter that me and the guy in the green shirt kicked the other two guys butts. And then she start wondering why people were asking for pictures. She's like, well, she just thought because she won the pickleball game. That's why they want the pictures. It turned out that the guy in the green shirt that was her teammate was minka Fitzpatrick. Hey. And the guys that she beat were Alex high Smith and TJ watt of the Steelers. Okay. And she had no problem. Make a Fitzpatrick is on our radar screen to join us soon. We're going to have a chat. So there are men a certain age. Aren't they too? Very young. So TJ watch playing pickleball? TJ what? Damn it. Alex hi Smith. Another big difference Patrick, is he playing pickleball? He and Meg one. Exceptions to every rule, rich. You can have your make if it's Patrick's, I'll take coach K look at that. Yes. And no clue who they were. So she and menka, she doesn't even get up to TJ's shoulder. Took out Alex highsmith and TJ watt. And the text she sent to her daughter was so I rolled up to north park tonight to jump in a pickleball game, started playing with these guys, had no idea who they were. Last game the guy in the green shirt and the other two that everyone else wanted to take our photo. And so her daughter tweeted that out on June 11th to which TJ watt responded, Meg was serving the capital letters hate. We had trouble all day. I'm telling you, you get a certain serve hit you in pickleball. It's very difficult. It's very difficult. You would not last very long playing pickleball. So the winner was of a certain age. You wouldn't. It's a very, it's a significant workout. I think you would tap out. The court is very small. Okay, great. I've never played. I'll beat you. Great. Terrific. Let's do it. Let's see it. Let's do it. It's better doubles though. Just pickleball one on one. Let's do it. I do not want Mike as a partner in anything. Let's do it. Honestly can't do anything. Honestly, you choose who you want..

"Were expecting that at all. So you just, did you find out on a text from Aaron? You just looked down at your phone and is that how you found out about his return? I think he texted me a couple of minutes before and told me he was 7 down in mayhem. You know, at first, we had like a violent relationship. He's one of the best coaches I've been around. So he's a fan of die hard news, old school coach. So I love everything about him. What did you say when you first started? You had a what relationship with him when you first got there? It was rocky because, you know, I wasn't starting and everybody knows the story. We can't play and he's like, man, what do you want, man? I don't want to release you. But if you want me to release you, I would be a part of something special. And you know, I was all happy. I got myself together and we won a Super Bowl. Leonard fournette here on the rich eisen show a few more minutes with the star running back of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers here on the program. Gronk's retirement. Do you think that there could be maybe a phone call lobbed in by Tom or you or anyone else during the season and maybe he runs it back one more time? Or do you think that's it? For him. What do you think, Leonard? I will be calling his phone 24/7. Regular season we're gonna need gross special program and sort of team to that locker room. His energy is vibe, man. Who wouldn't want to have him as a teammate? He's a great guy and I love him. So do you think he would be open to that still or what's your sense? What's your 6th sense on that? Leonard. I don't know, but the play of Lenny and he wants to see, I hope he does. I bet so where have I found you? Where are you? It sounds like you're in an airport. Are you in an airport? Where are you? No, actually, I'm golfing out in Toronto, the spinach meeting. Okay, so look, I don't want to take you from that too much. I'd rather get you back on another time. But when it's over you want to talk to me? I said, man, why not? I appreciate that. Richard. What's been good? We said that was in college. I appreciate that. I should not play another down in college, so I love rich. By the way, that was true. That was true. I mean, that is, that is no lie. I believed every word I said and a 1 million %. So have you heard that arch Manning that Peyton's nephew and Eli is a he's going to Texas? Did you hear that? So if you know the a recruiting guy over there, Texas is Brandon Harris, I'll let you go quarterback my old teammate. Okay. All right. Have you been contacted by Brian Kelly at all? Have you connected with the new coach there at LSU? Leonard? I'll talk to her when I went up there. And sing coach Frank Wilson, which was my running back coach there in my recruiter there. I haven't talked to him in years..

"Reverse to switch lanes. That is an unsatisfactory answer. Until my back feels right now. Very unsatisfactory. Leonard fournette is going to be joining us here on the show. Biggest news of the day without a doubt is that arch Manning is chosen University of Texas to play as collegiate football crafts indeed. I just, I don't think people understand how massive this is. This is a massive this is massive. The most anticipated college recruitment probably in the last 15, 20 years. Obviously the lineage there, being the nephew of Peyton and Eli. Everyone wondering where he was going to go, was it going to be old miss LSU was in the mix? Georgia was in the mix and to go to Texas what a coup for Steve sarkisian, Matthew McConaughey. And that's right. And all the other longhorns. This is massive, especially with UT now joining the SEC. It's just going to be awesome. When do they join the SEC, not next year, but the year after? Right, he still has one more year of high school, obviously. He is going in. So the year that he's going to the SEC is the year he arrives. Right. He will usher Texas into the SEC. Is that what it is? I think so. And already projected to be the number one pick in the 2026 NFL Draft. You know, the first year that he would be eligible. I mean, anything less than a national championship. Heisman. A Heisman Trophy. I think will be a disappointment in the arch Manning longhorns era. It's a pretty big deal. Pretty big news. 2025 is when they join the SEC. Okay, great. So it'll be his what? It'll be if he's next year. Sophomore year. And then he'll come out after his junior year. He'll be the number one pick. And then I don't know, don't demand, don't demanding stay on for. The lore might be too much for saying not anymore, rich. I can't wait to see what his NIE NIL do is going to be. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets a high school NIL deal this year for his senior season. Can you do that? I think you can. That's what Chris and I were. I've already said that might keep him in school that extra year for his senior year because he's going to make more money so much money in his NIL deal that taking a NFL contract would be financially a step down. How much, what's the difference? Tennessee orange is much more bright than the burnt Texas. Can we do Cooper Manning a favor and say he's Cooper's son? Instead of Eli and Peyton's nephew. Sure. We can do that because we know the Manning family. Casuals, I think. Can we identify him as cuppers kid can we do that? How about Archie's grandson? Archie's grandson is great. And Peyton and Eli's nephew is great too. But Cooper's kid. This is Cooper's kid. Copper. As they refer to him in that family. The funniest way. Funniest man. The funniest Manning is Cooper. Oh, I think that. I mean, he's not hilarious. The Halle Berry JB smooth commercials, right? Cover meetings pretty funny. And I remember the night that arch Archie Manning got the award for the Pat Summerall award for saint Jude children's research hospital. I hosted that night at the Super Bowl. I think it was a Super Bowl in New Orleans. I think it was the year, yeah, that's what it was. The year of the har bowl, and he received the pat summer award, Archie Manning did. And I just remember all three of his sons speaking first..

"So I do think even without dairy can still make the playoffs, it'll probably still win their division, but without Gary Kenner, you can expect them to advance it all. And the playoff, that's how meaningful dare Henry is to the team. But can they do anything to offset the injury? Yes, they can. They're going to need a running game because they just have another running back on injured reserve. They are going to need a replacement for Derek Henry moving forward. Who are two guys? Well, you want legit guys. So I'm saying excuse me. I'm saying Ronald Jones in Marlon Mack are two that they showed a really target. Bruce Arians has said that they would need an extraordinary offer to trade Ronald Jones. I don't believe that because Leonard fournette has handled a majority of the snaps jail Bonnie Bernard has looked good out of the backfield as well. So I think a reasonable offer you can get Ronald Jones. Ronald Jones has been demoted to the second back this year, hasn't been used much. But last year, ran for 978 yards, almost 1000 yard season, and he missed a few games due to COVID at the end of the year, which is why he was unable to surpass that 1000 yard mark in which is also why we saw Leonard fournette sort of take the reins from him. So I think he's a great bag here before, only started 9 games and ran for 724 yards. So I think he's an excellent back who could fit in this system and just ease some of the pain. He won't be able to replace Derrick Henry, but it's all about easing the pain and just staying at bay at the current moment. Ronald Jones is one of those guys. Another one, which of course happens to be in the same division, sadly, as the Tennessee Titans is the Indianapolis Colts, and that is their third string running back Marlon.

Cowboys Kicker Misses Two Field Goals in Dramatic Loss to Buccaneers
"I i don't think there's any way of getting around at the tonight. A loser for the dallas cowboys. Is greg zero line. Let's let's your thoughts your thoughts on greg's Let's see here one second. This is a hectic night. Obviously greg line just amber says. I'm so mad right now on facebook. i'm with you. I get this. You know an anthony says not the same defense Tony says push off definitely a push off there at the end cowboys losing. Because the buccaneers drive. If somehow missed the game drive at the very kick a game winning field goal which just about no time remaining cowboys. defense can't stop them in the cowboys. Defense i will say kind of was a little bit of the same old defense. We didn't get you know a defense that was just allowing the bucks going on and on and on and on but this defense did get four turnovers tonight. But if we examine those turnovers. I think the only real authentic one was the demarcus lawrence forced fumble demarcus. Lawrence is definitely a winner tonight. I think demarcus lawrence was awesome. But the first interception the cowboys had the trayvon digs on was a tipped ball. Off of leonard fournette. Yes that counts. Yes that's true. Yes that count statistically but you know that's not necessarily your defense making a play on the ball cowboys also got an interception on. Tom brady at the end of the first half throwing a hail. Mary trying something before the half. That isn't really count. Although jordan lewis certainly had valiant effort trying to run that back and get some points You know the last turnover. The one that kind of turned the game around a little bit. That gave the cowboys. an opportunity. There at the very end Was just kinda. Chris godwin you know running into devante. Casey's helmet those things aren't necessarily You know something. You can replicate on a week by week basis and so for that reason. It's hard to give the cowboys credit. For all of those turnovers it was a different type of performance at the exact same defense we. I think we definitely saw some improvements. I think that mike parsons played moderately. Well i think that demarcus lawrence has mentioned played while randy gregory was on things But this was. I mean man. What a rough game for anthony

It's jones to running back spots ahead of leonard fournette burning thirty three running back thirty five both of them in round eight. And who are you guys taking. I jones for it. I'm taking four net. Just it's so. Chris such a crowded back right every time i take four net and i just did it in this. Pick by pick series. That jamie mentioned earlier. I feel gross and it almost doesn't matter what round it's in i just feel like Is this a like a total waste of a pick. You like told. Dr throw on leonard for which is why. You really shouldn't take him. I think my sentences over so do you see a scenario other than injury. Where either of these guys really rise in. adp rise. no no. I think these are guys you settle for these guys that you know you. In some cases you avoid eye as long as they're healthy with giovanni bernard there there's such a logjam for touches so you know one week. It could be jones as the best one. One we ji was the best one we could be for. Net is the best one for net is the one that profile to do everything whereas jones more like a russia and geo more like a pass catching all right.

NFL Talking Heads
"leonard fournette" Discussed on NFL Talking Heads
"Draft picks. And we do that in a couple of leagues. I'm this is going to be a really good year for over trading down in certain spots you know when you know a couple of the examples we went over today with like pittsburgh when you have juju diontae johnson chase play claypool all going around five through seven and you have leonard fournette ronald jones both going around six and these things can move a little bit one direction or the other but like i would like a couple of stabs in the fifth or seventh round the old to go snag. A couple of these pittsburgh players and i think that that applies to a lot of different situations. We're going to see in the draft gets late around so for those out there if you can. Trade draft picks. Just something to think about. Especially if you can't get one of those top running backs and i'm talking Not even talking link top six or seven. I'm talking like getting your choice at top three early indications to me in any to sit down and look at this little more but as we get closer to this you know the the middle half back after the first round might be a great spot to do exactly what you're saying because all of the running backs get moved up and if it's not a super lea running back then why am i gonna take this wide receiver there if i can get a hundred catch guy in the fourth round. There's just kind of laying. Around over there with cooper tyler boyd of the world. So it's also going to be a year where and no says we're gonna probably have. We have a couple more months to talk about this but this is going to be a year. This is going to be a year. I think where you hear me. It's people are going to be tough a top position. Picking in the top five like doesn't really seem to be a player that out. We know world drew brees for alvin. Kamara dalvin cook. I guess he's chris. Mccaffrey down your last year. I think. I think mccaffrey in cook are like the de facto easy picks. You're just gonna doom mccaffrey's gonna get enough touches. They got a rookie. Okay but in your concern of ours. Is sam darnold being there but obviously cook you know but then like you mentioned if you're in a pr league can take henry and maybe feel comfortable with him. Barkley coming off just injuries and injuries and kamara with zeke is is consistently which is why he's up there but he's like he's no longer zeke anymore. Dallas is different right. And then taylor's played one year in gotten hurt and he's in a questionable spot. So i think you have to obviously take a running back. But you're just going to be like for me at. I don't know which direction i go. Because they're all flawed some. There's no there's no like consensus number one and you can say mccaffrey but it has. It's not a strong of a consensus running back as we've seen in years past i wouldn't even surprised. Delvin cook just goes one. You know at this point after what he did last year. Mccaffrey coming off another injury with more questions at the offense but i do think that they are the definitely the one into and after that it gets it gets even more swiss cheesy right. So you don't want wanna be kind of picking and having this this tiny feeling in your gut like how man hope barclays good in the offense and he doesn't get injured and like all of these things like you don't wanna be picking on a top five and having that kind of feeling like he you know to your point. The top end of this draft is is going to be presented some very hard decisions one hundred percent and dalvin cook missed over twenty games as i four years. This is a guy who always misses time. Yup but yeah. But i i guess these are first world problems. If you top five pick really feel sorry for you at the same time. Y- at this rate. You still probably want that over having to pick ninth but yeah so that's going to wrap up our episode. A another round of can't miss players. We are the nfl talking heads.

Can Tampa Bay Win A Second Straight Super Bowl
"Well in just his first season with the team brady has already brought a title to tampa buccaneers controlled. Much of last night's thirty one to nine super bowl win and brady is poised to keep winning saying after the game quote. We're coming back. You know that we do know it. And i personally love it shared. And how do you feel about is brady. Started his second dynasty in tampa skip out of his tour to detail. And if you made me say yes to say no. There's a reason why no team had repeated and sixteen years because it's hard to do and you see. Injuries are big part of this. So because we saw what happened to chiefs offensive line. They lose basically three starters and they're not the same team that they took to the super bowl the previous year. They're not even the same super bowl that would that finish the afc championship game. So injuries player key role in And plus a lot of things have to go well the injuries during the course of the season. I don't believe the pandemic. I think we're getting more and more vaccines arm and President biden was talking about last night. Say i expect the pike house for super bowl fifty six. Hopefully that's the case. Where is so fi here. Oh you're be out. I thought i'd be right over luma and plus get if you think about it. They got shack bags. A free agent. Labonte david i believe. They bite price themselves out of contracts tampa although they might be willing to take less money to come back to people. It's with jack man. Considering that he was an undrafted free agent and leave any money on the table of. Aren't they david that might be something dominant. So leonard fournette and tonio brown gronk. I believe a couple of those guys you can get back on the cheap but skipped the only have thirty guys on the contract for next year. The next is a that is forty two in the nfl their fifty three man roster only thirty the contract So who comes. Who goes is so hard to repeat because the turnover is so great now what we know right now for the most part. All the coaches are coming back. Tob old didn't get a job by relent. We didn't get a job and so for what we can see right. Now get the coaching staff. We'll be back in full. There was some speculation. That bruce arians if they won this one would would see the the head coaching to talk balls and maybe either being the background or walk into the sunset. I think this was such a headache experience for him at his age. He'd say i gotta take another shot. Hey could you remember. Meal did that and he later regretted he came. Back out of retirement ended up coaching kansas city. Yeah because he felt he made a decision out of emotion. That was the wrong decision. So maybe a fist back a couple of months but it's hard to repeat. There's a reason why there have only been in an full of teams now in the last thirty years. That's ever done it because it's so hard to cobb was dated. We did it and the patriots did it.

Around the NFL
Jaguars' Tom Coughlin may have violated NFL offseason rules with one simple statement
"Tom Coughlin. The Jaguars executive vice president said Thursday that players absent from the beginning of phase one of offseason workouts, quote were close to one hundred percent attendance. And quite frankly, all of our players should be here. I mean, he's still doing this stuff. The old military, man. Tom coughing west, you know, with the with the collective bargaining agreement coming up. Are we gonna do away with farce of voluntary? If you have guys going on record saying, I'd I expect you hear suck only involuntary I agree with that in principle in theory. But the one exception I would make is Jalen Ramsey and Leonard fournette for the Jacksonville Jaguars. They had so many issues last year with commitment with the clubhouse with teamwork with chemistry and Jalen Ramsey. I don't know what he's doing with his career. But I don't know what's going on with great football for the most part not last year played. Well, I mean, he was an all pro defensive player of the year type candidate the year before last year. He was average. Well, there's no question that Leonard fournette deserves to be in that spotlight. I just find that. There's no other team. I can really think of around the NFL where there is a non coach non GM consistently issuing these demand. Here is I mean like he is. He is what Mike Tannenbaum was in Miami. Or the more more with like a microphone, but he's in charge. Everyone knows. I would say then I would say eliminate the ruse and remove this GM in waiting or be the coach the same in what way remove him from the organization false achie- and like either like, Jim he's he want. He's in a role. You're the one to be all these other. Come on Coughlin. Getting your lean. He's definitely isn't buying into sort of the Bella check or parcels idea that there's one voice in the organization because coffin wants to be one of the void is don't. For your coach. Then obviously the coach out to answer for two. It's like are you on the same page? Doug Marrone, say that is Coughlan Merlin's, boss yell. Yeah. Sure. But he can say whatever it just it feels messy to me. But maybe it's just like conditioning at this point just lifting weights. Aken I feel like it's not that big of a deal because they can work out with their own personal trainers. And then if they show up out of shape than yeah. That's a problem which which with for not has been right, but yeah. Coughlin's gonna gonna not gonna coffee they're gonna

First and Last
Buffalo, Buffalo Bills And Jacksonville discussed on First and Last
"All of it boiled over into a moment where Leonard fournette and. I aim Lawson the Diene for the Buffalo Bills spilled over into a fight on the sideline the end. It was some punches on the field that got both players Jekyll, and that was one of those ugly moments where you thought man are we gonna full mouse in the palace this thing because everybody was involved in that it was Leonard fournette and shack Lawson and both of them were checked. And then the funny thing happened where letter for net going towards the locker room almost had like entourage around him. He had a couple of big dudes walk in with him over kind of escorting them there because they knew shack loss and company would be getting there at the same time. And shack was not done having that argument and all we thought. Spilling into that tunnels. We saw them John. And God bless those cameramen doing the Lord's work getting knee-deep into the tunnel. As we saw that fight spill over there. If we thought how ugly this might get and didn't, but it is every indication of how ugly this Jacksonville season has gotten right now buffalo. Yeah. Buffalo's a playoff was a playoff team last year inexplicably. They found a way we had that last minute play from Andy Dalton and the Bengals that helped lift buffalo into the playoff. All the buffalo wings got sent to him the donations all that great stuff. But that was much more of a fringe playoff team. And they were one that was going to be in transition with worke quarterback. And so this year you've seen the come up from that team. A team that's been able to rally around defense that is over performed for Jacksonville. This season has been a disaster. And so you see that moment for them. And you look at buffalo, and I say fight, I say all these things about buffalo that you can spin it as a positive and endearing sort of thing. And obviously this moment isn't all that endearing to anyone. But on the other side for Jacksonville. This just seems to be the death rattle that this team is in right now as they continue to lose games as now the defense is falling victim to what happens when you've got a team that so imbalance that can't count on its offense to bail it out ever that even a defense that we know has good parts that we've seen perform well that its top level got you to an AFC championship. Now seems to be falling apart and seems to be pulling apart at the seams. When you see that situation, I know Leonard for nets offense a player, but it's the death rattle of this entire machine. And you wonder now for Doug Marrone? What this looks like for him. Because when you fall this hard, nobody walks out of this thing blameless and for Tom Coughlin and this organization. What do you do address the quarterback position going forward? Because in the meantime, your players just be punched in the face.
Fantasy football - NFL Week 8 inactive players - injury updates
"Reports. Obviously do not take this as gospel. You wanna make sure that you are watching the injury report. Right up to kick off at eight thirty AM. You will get the official injury report. So you're gonna wanna make sure to watch your fantasy football teams at that time right now, we'll tell you what we already know. Josh Allen is out for the Buffalo Bills Sony. Michelle is out over there in New England really there's only two healthy running backs left in New England. And if you're having James white, you probably are in trouble up there Delvin cook is out again for Minnesota. And that means that Lamont Murray is going to do very well hope to Lee for this against the saints. Leonard fournette is probably realistically out until thereby weeks up and we'll come back. Tens of you're sitting on Leonard fournette and hope he's gonna play each week, better luck next time. Theoretic is out again, kerryon Johnson over there in Detroit is definitely worth playing. If you've got him. He is a great match up, and he's kind of matchup proof at this point. Roy Freeman like we talked about earlier is out in Denver and that makes Lindsey available. In Lindsay is a great matchup against Kansas City, unless they
Nick Bosa Urban Meyer Ohio State new age player power
"Drop out of school. And prepare for the NFL draft. He's not going to make an effort to come back this season. He's not going to try to get back in time for the bowl game or anything like that. He's going to he's not only quitting the team. He's dropping out of school altogether. And he's just going to prepare for the draft. And his coaches fine with it. Urban Meyer who also let him sit out a bowl game last year to protect himself because he didn't want to injure himself for the NFL draft was cool with that too. So are we reaching a new level here in college football in particular, where not only are they playing college football to get to the NFL? But now in some cases, they're not playing college football in order to get to the NFL new Loman creeping to that point. I remember miss year ago two years ago, Leonard fournette and McCaffrey to running back from Sanford didn't play in their bowl game to protect their draft. As remember these guys were big. Didn't last right. But these guys like they just made your bullets if they were the first ones to do it. Then both did it last year. So that was a creep in a little bit. Now. Now, you got creep, and I can see a guy leaving if the team is to in eight or whatever, and you know, why come back. I'll just get ready stations continue for national championship there. Right in the mix. This team could be ready to go. Download school. He's people to game the scholarship. He's lend down. He's letting everybody down and the coaches lesson go away. I don't think. That's right. Well, this right, depending on who you believe this comes from his father. So I don't know. He's saying that his recovery would take so long that he wouldn't be back in time for the bowl game. Anyhow, I don't know if that's true or not his father is a former player in the NFL who had his career ended after three years because knee injuries. So he's obviously very sensitive to this. And he wants to get his kids into the NFL and get paid before an injury might happen. And here an injury has already happened to Nick Bosa to me the other part of this. You didn't even mention Kenny is that he just dropped out of school. So I mean how obviously he could care less about going to college. There's nothing nothing in his core injury. That would keep them from getting to class, right, buddy. Say well, what's the point of being in school? If I'm not gonna play football. It is October. Okay. The draft isn't until April. But I just think that this is more and more just becoming glaringly obvious point that college topnotch college players are only there. There to get an NFL career. And now, they don't even have to play pretty soon. Kenny, it's going to get to the point. They're already missed the bowl games. If injured I'm not gonna go. What happens if you're you're really great all American player. But for whatever reason your team is foreign foreign. You say, you know, what we're not going anywhere. We're gonna get in some crap bowl game that I don't care if I go to or not I'm not playing the last two games of the season. I'm just gonna sit it out. Right. I don't need to give back from some urban Meyer, probably fine with that. Because what is urban Meyer ultimately interested in next year's he's already paying. And if he if he looks like the kind of guy who will get you to the NFL, no matter what he's gonna get that five star recruit. So that's why he's cool
Pro Football Talk with Mike Florio
Jaguars vs Chiefs Predictions
"Hill, I guess. This is one thing. I we don't know. What's the deal with Sammy Watkins yet? Right, right. Does that limited in practice yesterday? Limited in. Practice yesterday with a hamstring and drought will be huge. They need that other weapon. I mean, this is a team that plays through their offense. Obviously, I think I'm going to give the Jaguars de the edge in this matchup. But I want to say this. I think their offense is going to play a big role in that. Because I do think their offense is going to be able to display smashmouth in-your-face football against the Kansas City Chiefs defense, which is the worst in football, and they're going to be able to keep the ball out of the hand of Mahomes too. So I think that kind of plays hand in hand. Well, I think that's really the match up that's going to determine the Jaguars offense against the chiefs defense and the chiefs defense at times on Monday night looked horrible on one of the touchdown runs Royce frame and going down the right side guys were just grabbing at him. There was no effort to try to to try to tackle him. So there are deficiencies on that defense and there won't be Leonard fournette for the Jaguars offense. He's already been ruled out with an aggravation of his hamstring injury. Can Blake Bortles do over the passing game? And I like the idea of grinding it out and shortening the game and frustrating, Patrick Mahomes and putting them in a position where he is when he is on the field. He feels like he's got to make the most of his opportunity because who knows how long it's going to be until he gets another opportunity. I still think though what we saw from Mahomes and hostile conditions on Monday night in Denver. I feel like that they helped me find even against that Jaguars defense. I feel like he'll be fine. The Jaguars have never seen a quarterback. Like this guy. Who's allusive a guy who can run and throw with velocity with touch on the run can make good decisions go left handed if he needs to they have that array of weapons, I think it's more than the Jaguars defense can handle and playing in Kansas City. Definitely an edge for the for the chiefs. But but can they slow down the Jaguars offense? Not jaguars. Offense is great. But we saw what it did a couple of weeks ago against the patriots. I really think that's what's going to decide this. When you know when you have one of these games where you've got a really great offense. And you really great defense on the field half the game the other half the game. It's the suspect offense against the suspect defense, and that's what's going to determine this one. Yeah. You're exactly right. I I look at it the same way the chiefs are horrible on first and second down if they can get the third down. I think I said this yesterday, and I believe I got to look it up. But I'm pretty sure that the number one third down defense and football. That's where they can be confusing for a quarterback was defensive coordinator, Bob Sutton. He will do some, you know out of the ordinary stuff on third down to confuse a quarterback to where you know, you drop back, and you just go damn I don't know what coverages they drop these people here this this guy there, and that's where they get creative. But I do worry about them on first and
