"I'm trying to get the amount of years he played and you have to do the math. He played forever for the Buffalo Bills in amongst others linebacker. Recently retired superstar. Lorenzo Alexander was was going on and congratulations on retirement. Brother Hell of a run. You guys went onto. Yeah appreciate their years. Great men the last four years. I've been buffalo been awesome. How now going into retirement did you know coming into the season this is potentially? It was a mid season when you have the conversation. Yeah it was definitely up potentially coming in his last season Me and my wife had talked about it really over the last two or three years I was getting older order. Our kids are getting older and wanted to be a part of their lives But I didn't make the decision probably around week eight week nine Body feeling bad all those type type of things that go into your mind is how I feel older player but mainly the main reason was it came down to choosing my family and Really WanNa Be Chore for my Kids From My wife. Travelling really enjoy joy of the things that we sacrifice over the last fifteen years and be able to do it with a high quality. You know not limping around. Give it around if I continue to play this game. You Never Hall of fame speech each normally. There comes a time where the hall of Famer says. I apologize to my kids for not being around enough. That doesn't that doesn't get thought about a lot by NFL players whenever you're in it it's a very selfish push profession. You're not around a lot. You GotTa do what you're going to do in the wife and the mom usually has to carry a lot of the burden I'm happy you're making that decision. Yeah appreciate and like you said my wife is really held it down and and and and what it started becoming for me is that you know I believe in faith family and football and being an older player I had to start preparing to prepare auto massaged judge the dry needling acupuncture. You know the stretching all those type of things that would add additional time on top of my regular preparation that took a digital type away from the give you played fifteen years luke. Kuechley just retired after eight. Do you blame him that decision or did you see it coming not at all on the obviously. Lucas has some issues with concussions. Shins and at the end of the day This game is not worth of your livelihood in the quality of life that you wanna be able to live on his family with his kids. It's and all those other things that game stripped from you. If you if you are dumped is I call it and try to push through things that you should do push through. I agree completely. I'm I'm very happy for you. Very happy for Luke equally. Let's move to these games now. Fifteen years in the NFL. Have you ever seen an offense with this. Many weapons like the Kansas City chiefs have right now Not really not at all I mean they. They operate on so many different levels high octane offense and once they figure out I've been around or compete against Andy Reid. Eight coached teams often. Once he gets is his thumb on you is is you might might have been night night. I've been plenty many ties when I played against him up in feeling when I was at the redskins dance. And they put a fifty spot on us. And so that's probably the only time I've seen a team. Kinda made up like this when they had to shine they had vic the had shady they had a lot of weapons off. And you just can't double one guy because anybody can be genuinely want to the titans have and what have the titans done with their team. Now you guys played them Earlier in the year they have evolved since. Then right I mean Ryan. Tannehill has become the special home they had evolved. I think they figured out how to win. Execute it at a high level In the in the much very similar to Baltimore and it'd be Baltimore at their own gain. They're going to ground and pound. You play great defense. Try to get up on you. You know Oh maybe one or two scores and then turned into a four minute offense at hand off to again reach over and over and over again and you get tired of tackling him and then the fourth quarter he comes upbeat with another score and then on defense they played good. Sounds great defense and create turnovers and get the ball back to their office and so they're not going to while you but they're gonNA play football kind of go back a little bit when you play them kind of back to early in my career in the NFL. So they're a little bit of a throwback style team do. Do they have what it takes to to stop this chief team. That has a complete buzzsaw defensively. They're going to have to create turnovers. They you know if he gets into a you. You know A shootout since they have to try to score twenty one twenty four twenty eight points. They lose the game but if they can keep it low scoring Create some turnovers. Make him kick field goals when he get into the red zone They'll have a shot definitely because nobody wants to tackle Henry one is when the game. It's tight in four. That's what I was about to say. Everybody talks about having to tackle Derrick Henry. I think I've heard this money. Elite players talk about having the towel. Human Yeah you you have to make up your mind you know. I competed against the last two or three years a couple of times. And you beat me. I beat him. We've had some draw but you have to physically bring it to him all all day long and as a DB I can't be mad at the DB maybe one seventy five one ninety and you've got to fifty that's coming again and they crack and you I gotta replace most guys that business decision or even hold on away for the cavity. Come by that time. You need to sniff armed your major myths and he you know out the gate. What is is that like like a boxer preparing for a fight? Assume I'M GONNA have to. I'm a have to run into this. I'm GonNa Right but it but the issue is that most guys even saw earl Make a statement last week like they're going to have the mindset that come out and tackle but you do that in the first second quarter and then at therapy he paci one time in the third four you like. I'M GONNA go in there but I don't just happen naturally. You you try to keep tackling a big man like that who relentless. What do you think about that niners defense? And how are they going to cause problems for Aaron Rodgers Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay packers team won close games aims now. They've been very close but they've won continued to win. The defense has been opportunistic but everybody soccer about this defense being fully healthy Jimmy Johnson offense getting into a groove. How do you see that game playing out? And what can Aaron Rodgers do against that defense You know it's GonNa be hard. I mean I I love the ninety s Front four I mean obviously all first round period lead in they get after the quarterback and they play the run very well as well so it's really going to be led by them in in For Aaron if he can't get into a rhythm early if they're able to take away way Parker Maybe double team him. His I read is off is going to give those guys up front to get to him. So it's GonNa be very tough because I think a Kyle Shanahan office again. You know they game plan well They don't care how they beat you. They're going they're going to export your weaknesses by running the ball passing it and coming up with things to really attack your weaknesses. So in my mind what I think is going to be the forty niners that come out with the victory and his gang. I think everybody's thinking that it's a seven and a half points spread right now. I mean it's more than a score right now for the packers who has been in three point games. It's basically all year that's a large number thing. Yeah and they found ways to win obsolete Aaron and and what he's able to bring to the table as far as being a lead quarterback but the forty niners team is probably one of the most teams. I've seen for a while. You know. Obviously having their core front plan great defense and then physically able to beat your multiple ways whether it's the passing game to running game aim and they have a pretty good quarterback themselves. What do you think about the future of the buffalo bills? You guys had a hell on this year and I think everybody everybody enjoyed watching. Now we'RE GONNA THEY'RE GONNA have to replace you. which is a veteran leader? It'd be difficult but this bills team looks like you guys are pretender potentially on arise the culture that we've established over the last three years. Is Jeffrey on the right. Right to Gregory in the guys like Michael Jordan Poyet's remained at Mr Davis White Josh Allen those guys are going to take the reins of the absence of me as far as leadership and this team going to take that step. We got ninety million dollars Brandon bean is Sean McDermott. Habit to dispose off season and they've been very smart is looking at the history. The guys that they've identified as obviously grateful ball players but then great leaders that they can bring in hand in add to what they have and so includes the draft. I think those guys are GonNa do a great job in this football team GonNa take the next step because they're really starting to hit their Prime Josh in Germain going into the third year really be starting to solidify themselves as from from Middle Range players to now seven two that leap that leap level kind of like what. You'RE DAVIS DID THIS YEAR PLAN CORNER SO is a lot of promise. And I haven't even mentioned that single Terry very and what he brings to the table. So it's GonNa be a big time. I think next year they get a home a home playoff game and and make a run and the Patriots are potentially dead. So I'm on. What happened Lorenzo? Congratulations on your retirement. In every time we have you on the show. Nothing short of impressed. You're going to do great things. Thank you so much for joining us are Patrick. NFL sorry to interrupt. I just want to let you.

"Zone zone though some right we're being joined now by an all pro a man that changed the game. The X factor return specialist Dante. Aw appreciate that. So hey what's up. Man The human urban joystick is an incredible nickname. I hope they still call you then at the house. I've got three kids at four years. What are you all right? Hey the chiefs are damned good. I mean tyreek Hill. Just said no offense that he said listen no offense to anybody. With all due respect he said which normally means cameras. Yes and said there ain't nobody that can stop us and to be honest. I don't think there's a single human on earth earth that disagrees with them. What do you see from this chief team? I assume you're still a massive fan of the chiefs. What do you see friends chief team? That makes them different this year than in years past well first of all. He's absolutely right and you know sometimes when you tell the truth the truth hers and this what it is in this case but I think the difference in this particular team from what I've seen in years past this especially the successful chief teams were. This team can beat you despite rules like don't turn the ball over. Don't have special team in gaffes. Don't have stupid penalties. There are so explosive they overcome all that. And if you have any defense to go along with this particular Offense offense I mean. It's lights out Dante Standard. If you get a blocked kick for a touchdown you lose the game. If you get a blocked punt for for for a touchdown when you lose the game if you muff punt inside your own tent and they get it may score you lose the game like those are just stats are factual thing like ninety percent of the time you get a kickboxing and they just have this ability to withstand anything. And I think was that Texans first-quarter a wakeup call to a team. That has already unbelievable. We've moved. I don't think it was a wakeup call at all. I think it was a fluke to be honest and even though we had the special team muff special teams blocked kick for a touchdown. The Texas turned around and did the same thing. They had a muff right inside there at ten and then four foolish four thousand four so that counts it out that particular game. I just think that quarter that was an absolute. We may never see a half of football or a quarter of football like that again Dante Hall. You Change Games immediately upon on stepping on the field. WHO's the person for the Kansas City chiefs that they can't other than Patrick mahomes that whenever the he's on the field it's a game changer? O Tyreek Hill. I mean it's as the speed that Mason even with he doesn't have a monster game like a seven kids one thirty just his presence. You must put a man over the top. Then that opens up things for Kelsey walk INS and Moco Hardiman so is hands down re-keeled because of the speed you ran a four to nine forty. That's why I think that that that that might be on Wikipedia. Some I've never seen four two four three six as my h- How hey what he humble response by. which did you write that on the Wikipedia your starry detail the fastest player you've ever seen on a football field I think so yes not even close You have to be a person to see a TV. Really doesn't do it justice you got to see all other twenty twenty one guys and there's be in live action and then look at his speed at this jess as as what what. What is Andy Redone? You think this this year or maybe even Lash Forgotten Remember D. Ford Helluva football player for the cheese for a long time and now for the niners. He's a game changer. But if he was six inches back the chiefs probably win that game last year. Going win the Super Bowl. Everybody knows everybody knows that this year though the Andy Reid conversation has always been and these great for the first ten weeks verse eleven weeks and then he runs out of Ammo and they kind of sputter out with Patrick Mahomes and all of these weapons. It feels like Andy. Reid probably coach another twenty thirty years and still keep going. Yeah and I think Andy Reid is going to be what Andy. Reid is. In my opinion the biggest difference tissue is defense with opportunistic defense. They're actually actually a little more stout than they were last year. I think that's the difference because when you need a key third down. Stop getting with guys like Thai Thai met you like. Did you SITO play. He had on Hopkins last week. During the Comeback Little tidbits like that keep the momentum running. I think the difference and to read is going to be able to read is GONNA put up. It's going to his quarterbacks they're gonNA put up numbers. The office is going to be top five every year. It's the defense issue. That's the difference. What do you think about the Tennessee? Titans they came out of nowhere. The Baltimore Ravens look like a completely different team than what the Baltimore. Ravens look like all year and I think the three week break could've potentially very hurt them. But I agree with you the Tennessee. Titans you know what I would run four to to agree with. You saw the Tennessee. Titans have this team that seems to be built to win playoff games. They have a stout defense. They have solid special teams even though they don't kick field goals. Breakfast is an absolute stud keeps ball away from returner and that offense with Derrick Henry in background who's done only running for cash but he's running through individuals. Is there a chance at the titans can upset the chiefs this weekend or do you see that or no. I mean it's absolutely a test and it's funny the the comment you just made because I actually was thinking about this or in another interview we talked about it but think about this. You got this new school. Andy read office as throwing the ball all over the place. And then you've got the old school kind on your air. Definitely my era of smash mouth like you say Grun Gay of strong strong specialty. That has been the formula for years if not forever to win Super Bowl so I was going to be interesting to see which style Tau wins out. Is it smashmouth. D. Or is it opportunistic D. and crazy outfits is going to be a styles game this week so I'm looking forward to that the chiefs chiefs could've put up one hundred poets last. I don't know if I don't know how long Derrick Henry and that titans offense have to keep Patrick mom's on the sideline but it's going to have to be a a long damn time because I think in a matter of four minutes scored twenty four points or something like that data lease that is insanity. Let's move over to the NFC side now niners packers Obviously everybody loves that NINERS DEFENSE BY LOVES COW Shanahan. His big brain is also a very good coach. But the packers have Aaron Rodgers. And I think that is is literally what you have to remember all these conversations. They have a better defense than he had. In the past. They have Aaron Rodgers. Who always seem to get it done in these types of situations but that niners team team looks like they are going to be tough especially at home in Santa Clara? What are your thoughts? Yeah a month plus I agree with everything you said but I think the niners pull it out defense. This is just going to be to stop when you can rush four. And that's how you stop a great quarterback like an rodgers. Tom Brady you have to be able to get there with just four award. And that's what the niners can do. But then the niners can also be explosive on offense. I'd like Garoppolo some people Kinda iffy. I really like him. If Bill Belichick was behind on this guy I'm definitely is tell me to behind his guy and I love rookie samuels. I'd like to Vet Samuels too but the rookie. Sam Wheels is the difference maker so with that front. Four the difference maker with Samuel's and Garoppolo I think they don't I like the night. It was hilarious line there. I wonder if bill likes because everybody's talking about how Jimmy Jesus a game manager doesn't really win games or the niners but it is forgotten forgotten that there was a lot of rumors conversation. Billy be wanting to go with Jimmy G. instead of Tommy there for a long time and then they had to get him out of town because of the conversation conversation. Let's say you bought some flows and drying. I is a t-shirt we don't have enough for sale. All that looks real. That was a real Cuban leak. We'll send one to you man. I can't afford another night. Did you watch Aaron Hernandez documentary yet. I started it last night. Right started last night. How sad I mean? Yeah a sad bafflingly. I'm watching the sea. Is there anything anything new. I'M GONNA learn you know what I mean like. What because I've seen the documentaries I've seen the you know the stories read articles? I'm waiting to see. Is there anything new. That's is going to make me be on on the side but more understand it of lie or I'm going to be feeling the same you know I I had forgot what about it to be honest. I forgot about the yeah. I think that is that is how bad my you millennial onto..

"These teams have been involved in some historical matchups in the NFC championship. Back in two thousand fourteen. The packers had a huge lead in Seattle sixteen. Nothing seahawks REBA comeback. I'm back advanced to the Super Bowl again. This this this one this I. It's almost fitting right that this is the last match of the weekend because it'll you'll kind of build up off to it right.

And then you end the weekend with Lambofield divisional round to super bowl winning quarterbacks just has that gives you that that good feel about the visual weekend right viterbese Sunday night to be cold. Dark and yet. Russell Wilson going back to Wisconsin and the one. The Seattle is the have been a better road team than they've been a home team this year. There ain't one on Sunday. They're eight and one on the road. Exactly Y- been. They've been extraordinarily tough and and the whole narrative about West coach teams. Not being able to travel doesn't doesn't Work for them. They're they're only. The one loss was on the west coast against the rams in Los Angeles so anytime they've really had to travel time. They've won this season. I don't think that's going to be what what prevents them from. Winning this game against the packers. Hey ever really appreciate the breakdown of the divisional regional matchups games this weekend.

"Four thirty thirty five eastern Vikings at forty niners. How do we break down this matchup? This one you have to start the quarterbacks here and we know the history with with Kirk cousins and Kyle Shanahan who he played with Kyle Shanahan was Shanahan was the OC and cousins first years in Washington and certainly there were talks talks that cousins would potentially go out there to become the forty niners quarterback when Shanahan got the head coaching job. Now you look at Kirk cousins. Jimmy Garoppolo this season both completed sixty nine point one percent of their passes Jimmy Garoppolo through twenty seven touchdowns cousins twenty six cousins had a total. QBR Fifty eight point eight Garoppolo a QBR of fifty fifty eight point seven. You look at both teams built around the running game play action passing you see a lot of similarities between these two teams but what really stands out for me at him for this Sunday is which offensive line can stop the defensive lines pass. I think that will be the key to this game. We saw in the wildcard playoffs in New Orleans Orleans however soon griffin and Denise Hunter they completely threw the saints off their game without offense early in the game the saints eventually got their footing but I think the the early disruption of drew brees completely threw the saints off base. The forty niners have a similar Impressive pass rush when you look in. Nick Boza Eric. Armstead deforest buckner. I think and as we go through these four-match all kind of give a key for each one. I think that will be the key Saturday afternoon. which offense of line can stop the opposing pass rush? I think I think that's going to be the case again. And who. Who has the advantage? Well I think that look I. It'll be tough for the vikings to be two thirteen win teams on the road. We've never seen that happen in the wild card and the divisional round. It's happened later on in the playoffs. The start a playoff run beating two thirteen win teams. I think the forty niners will do enough to slowdown hunter and Griffin and they'll move on to the NFC championship over there. It is. Wow that's quite a prediction right there. What do you disagree why I think you have to favor? The forty niners. Just think about it like this seven. The Vikings went into New Orleans. Tough physical game Short we travelled very short week. Travel back Have to go to the coast now right and Kyle Shanahan two weeks. That's a problem for anybody. I just think that he's going to be able to move that football. Although I will say I. It's hard as it is physically on. Wildcard Wildcard teams to play that much. I think we've seen an awful lot. Sometimes a team wins in the wild Koran and really gets a lot of momentum and carries it right into the divisional original run. And that's something that every one of these home teams this weekend. I think has to watch out for. I agree completely and especially in the case of team like the Vikings who didn't end the season on the greatest no week sixteen on Monday night football. We saw that disappointing performance against the packers. They sat most of their starters in week. Seventeen so it was only came into the playoffs with a ton of momentum but then they have gained leaned all that momentum with the upset win over the St.. So I agree with you. I think they could become and also keep this in mind. This is Jimmy Garoppolo's first career playoff start as great eight as the forty niners have been all season as impressive has he's been especially later in the season. This is first career playoff start. We know what happens. Sometimes when quarterbacks get onto those bright lights in the postseason choses how he's GonNa play. We have no body of evidence to compare it to so we will find out Saturday. Four thirty five and the Vikings play at San Francisco an early start in the bay area one thirty thirty five Pacific Time that night. We have the titans at the Ravens. Eight fifteen eastern. How do we break down this match? Bevin this'll be fun and I think this is really gives. Is this kind of old school field with this game when you talk about the running games right so the NFL's leading rusher and Derrick Henry who we saw what he did in the wildcard round against the Patriots against the quarterback Lamar Jackson who will win the NFL MVP and broke the record for quarterback rushing yards in a season the ravens led the NFL rushing. The titans were third the teams combined for more than fifty fifty five hundred rushing yards this season. which is crazy so you talk about a key in this game? It'll be who's going to stop the run better. I mean I think that will have a direct effect on. WHO's GonNa win if the titans can go in there and slowdown? Lamar Jackson. Impressive Ravens running. They'll they'll have a chance. I don't know that they can do it though. Yeah you know it's interesting. Is Lamar Jackson. Accent is the MVP of the season but there can we might be the MVP of the past month now the second straight year that he's gotten better stronger as years. Go on and it's almost like a big body running back like that defenders don't want as much of a part of him later. In the year he gets stronger. Everyone gets more tired. And that works the advantage of somebody's big and toughest Derrick mckenry absolutely and and you look at him with yards after contact as well leads the NFL. In addition to the total rushing yards. And as you said tough for him mm to tackle he put up a great performance in the wildcard around. But I think sometimes what people are forgetting. What the Ravens with with all the The the deserved hysteria around Lamar Jackson. That is this defense was third in the NFL. In scoring defense. I remember we talked back before free agency before the two thousand nineteen draft about all the defensive players players at the Ravens lost the dairy Smith and Terrell suggs and Eric Wetland. Cj Moseley well. They've retooled that defense a lot of which is since the the the trade for Marcus. Peters who has really short things up on the back end and that even they blitz a ton fifty four percent of dropbox they're sending a blitz which is by far the highest rate we've seen in the last decade and third and scoring defense that speaks speaks volume so this is a balanced team. There's a reason they won. Fourteen Games Adam Right. It wasn't just on one side of the ball so the titans they beat the Patriots. I think it's GonNa be a tough task for them to go on a Baltimore and win again. I agree with that. I think this Baltimore team has just rolling along. It's it's a great team. They've won twelve straight games. Last time they lost with September twenty ninth. I agree with you. I swear. Tough out for the Tennessee. Titans on Saturday night Baltimore's just rolling right now. What what about on Sunday? Let's shift our attention to Texans at chiefs three. Oh five eastern Sunday. What we make that match up this is going to be a fun game? I think with the Shawn Watson Patrick Mahomes the second career meeting between them. They met earlier this season week. Six when the Texans went in there and one we talked about the similarities between the before that game they continue now now they were born three days apart they have the same number of touchdown passes this season. They were both named to the pro bowl. And we'll talk about key in this game. It's going to be. which team can slow down the opposing quarterback when the play breaks down over the last two seasons they have the most completions and the NFL? When they're under pressure? Mahomes one Watson too so that what is going to be critical in terms of when this play breaks down which defense has a as does a better job of slowing down the quarterback. How much credence do you put into the fact that Houston Houston were able to beat Kansas City earlier in the season? I think because of where the game was the fact that it was at Arrowhead. I put something into it because we know they weren't as good at home this season as they've been in in some years past but that's one of the toughest places to play in the NFL. So the fact that Shawn Watson in only his third year in the NFL was able to go in there and get a win. They put up thirty one points. It should have been more if you remember the game. They dropped the Andre Hopkins and will fuller both had a couple of drops. It could have been touchdown so that was a seven point. Join Gaming could have been much worse so that was a game. The Texans really dominated. I think psychologically when you go into a place that's tough to play. That historically has a great home field advantage having a winner earlier this season. I think it means a lot. You know it's interesting. I don't think it could be completely dismissed. Look Seattle went into Philadelphia early this year And won the game seventeen nine. They go back in the playoffs in seventeen again score. I was wild. Okay so I mean that's that's just how those two teams matched up I know Carson Wentz got hurt on Sunday and that change Dineh but it's the same score twice with two teams right so there has to be something that tells me. The Houston is capable of going in there and playing your gate good game. I'm not telling you that the Texans are GonNa win the game. But they're capable of playing good enough to be competitive and have have a chance to beat the chiefs in Arrow doesn't this feels a little bit like like a chiefs here though just and there's no there's no and and the defense yes much better in the last six games they've given up. They've allowed eleven and a half points per game that's the best in the NFL from week. Eleven to seventeen. Yes yes. It's easy to get wrapped up in Patrick Mahomes and the offense and Kelsey inhale and everybody but this defense and there's no patriots just just feels to me like this might be a year that Andy Reid gets back to the Super Bowl. I don't disagree with that and it sets up a potential. AFC Championship game. That would be unbelievable. Again that's no disrespect to Houston Tennessee. They've had great seasons and they will have a chance this week and they can pull the upset good for them right but we got the. We've the ravens is a heavy favourite. We've got the chiefs heavy favourite. We'll see if the heavy favorites can live up to what Vegas expects of them and set a great AFC championship game all right. The final game aim of divisional playoff weekend Seattle Akron Bay six forty eastern Sunday night. What are we make? Whatever this one you've got the two quarterbacks left left in this playoff that that has some experience as opposed to the six others Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson with nine wins each in their postseason careers. You'll get the six other quarterbacks they've combined for four wins so this there's experience here. They both won super bowls. It's the eighth meeting including the playoffs. Between Wilson Rogers. The home team has won all all seven of the previous meetings. Russell Wilson's never won at Lambeau field. But the thing to counter that Wilson has been great in his career against Super Bowl winners. Fifteen and six against super bowl winning quarterback as the best winning percentage among quarterbacks with at least ten starts in the Super Bowl era so this one the there's is a Lotta great history..

"Year. NFL veteran who announced his retirement after the bills wildcard loss at Houston. Lorenzo Alexander. Renzo thank you very very much for taking time today much appreciated. My pleasure fishers own Adam. Well here's my question for you. How does a guy who is an undrafted drafted free agent in two thousand five? That goes to training camp with the Carolina Panthers with nobody in Carolina expecting much of anything have long. NFL career that just winds up now where he's a two time pro bowl player the defensive mvp of the two thousand seventeen pro bowl played in the final title. Ninety six games of your career the second longest active streak among linebackers. Before your time on Saturday. Five Time Walter. Payton man of the year nominee including get your last three seasons in Buffalo. How does all that happen? Drafted free agent from five. I mean in my mind is only God's house blessings and and what I mean by that is he's put Great people in my life. You know really starting to at an early age and I have my father's house but he tried them all. Steve Foods my coach coach really played that role and create a great foundation in from there. I can name numerous coaches and players that really poured into my life. My career's headed handed off. The field. probably highlighted probably by Danny special teams coach in Washington. and also run the Fletcher. I had opportunity play with your washing for quite a long time but amongst those men there were many of these Just really helped me out and I think from my perspective was I really grew up in those first couple of years. Because I think like most NFL athletes. You've been the man your whole life. The whole life visit me. I didn't get drafted so that was worse than that in the face and I got a couple of times and so that really may motivated. Ovadia meal really gave me a different perspective on what I needed to do to raise my game professionalism to another level in order to give myself an opportunity just to get a chance to get on the A C or make the team and so with that I took advantage of it And again just always trying to stay coach always trying to learn and try to grow each and every single year a year even as I made the transition to multiple position and just never got complacent at route was at because I saw a lot of guys come in with a lot of great talent but didn't end Achieving what they set out to do so I tried to take note of those things learn from mistakes and not make it my own and also taking things from my God. Like I say they your money Fletcher at Your Car Williams Just list goes on and on with guys all save caliber guys even issue with Frank Gore that you get to be around and learn from and so I think good. That's what Really allowed me to take you know a very humble beginnings almost no chance no shock ever make it and turn it into a fruitful and productive reductive NFL career. I'd say and you mentioned some incredible men. There Larry Fitzgerald London Fletcher Frank Gore examples of professionalism. Analyst is about and this year Lorenzo. There will be a bunch of players who go undrafted. What would you say to the guys who go to training camp camp without being drafted who are long shots? What would you recommend to them willing to make the team into an NFL career? So there's two Beta stays because You know obviously I've had a lot of guys had mentioned some guys and from my own experience I would say One check your ego because you no longer the man Dan You have to humble yourself and and and the great ones that you see. Do it So you need to be comfortable because what your college or high school is not necessarily GonNa work at this level or awesome at a total different technique. That you want you to learn. That's going to be conducive to their system. Or whatever they sound guys be successful throughout their coaching career And then number number to take care of the things that you can control Don't walk in there with an entitled mindset of what you would maybe gotten away with in college as far as maybe being late not working out to your full potential Maybe missing some classes have been a little Lazy as far as your mannerisms and how you approach your tasks that your coaches ask ask transcend ask you to do whether it's Rehab or lifting weights Approach like a professional. Like you would want somebody to treat you like the people that are working for you show up all the time one hundred percent effort do extra ask questions figure out the why and then talk to vetter leaves that are in that locker role with and try to you. Know get an indication of what allowed them to play seven eight nine plus years and lead and Really become their shadow. And if you're able to do those three the things is definitely going to increase your chances of making that team because oftentimes is coaches coaches. Want the best players. Don't play on Sunday. They won't guys that they can trust left because obviously their job is at stake too and live and die with production player so if you can gain their trust they're going to give you an opportunity and then it's up to you at that point you take the skills and the skills that they have have helped you with they make the most of it. So what led you to retire at this point time because it certainly looks like you could still play Lorenzo. You had twenty four sacks the last four seasons they still count on you as a leader. I mean you're thirty six years old. You probably could've kept playing if you wanted. Why retire now I think it comes a point. Everybody's career we really sit down and do a self evaluation of where you're at As far as professional career they weren't you had as far as life outside of football and for me Family I hold in very high regard. I've been married for twelve years in January. We take we have four beautiful kids and and and because of the blesses football is giving me is giving me a lot of freedom or bell playing football financially relationships ships as far as other avenues. I WanNa do and All the reasons at this point to come back and play for selfish reasons to continue the field my passions advised vides far as being a football player. You know to feed my ego but as far as people recognize it as sociology with being NFL linebacker. And so the reason why I really stepping away. So it's the play a supportive role in my family Really be there with my kids and be able to do at a high level quality of life Because I house as you said I'm thirty six you start playing thirty seven thirty eight in the way I play through the Kennedy. You continue to put yourself at risk obviously additional head issues news Concussions C. T. and then also You know knees hips auto little things that people tend to take for granted you know because right now this this past season it's hard for me to wrestle with my sons. Go out play. Whom for this? You know mess around because I'm sore grumpy and I don't WanNa be like that so it really was a just taking a self evaluation of what I want to be. What I think is really important especially at this age is I have kids in the House at eleven nine and five and because I have an older daughter is in college I know it goes by extremely fast and so I want to be there and really enjoy these these These glory days of being there in of their childhood And I don't know if you've got to see my daughter perform national answer. But she did an awesome job so I just want to be around fast in those moments in their lives whether I literally hoops literally football or My daughter acting and being at her place and not be able to miss any of it. So that's kind of rhyme at and Al Ed in the stage of my career and top of that they you know enjoy The foods that me and my wife have sacrificed for the last fifteen years. And they'll they'll be able to travel a little bit they've got some time It really just grow in Have some increase memories away from the game. Good for you on all those things. I got a couple things that you said that just triggered immediate thoughts from you. Lorenzo number one. You said your daughter with the national anthem doing a great job. Did she say me after that. I miss something on Saturday when she started the national national anthem so my wife had kind of indication that this is the most likely to be our last year or so back in June. She team My youngest daughter Zoey would would would be able to sing the national anthem. And so she bay surprise me We play the jets. My last home game with her singing the national anthem and there was a beautiful thing my teammates. He makes two years and so it was just a a cool Atmosphere in a An experienced a half you know. Have One of your children sing the national anthem and do such a great job in Boston. I didn't even know that she's saying that is an unbelievable thing. I thought you meant in Houston on Saturday to the wildcard game. And I'm like I didn't see a five year old girl. Okay good okay. So we're good there and that's an unbelievable way to go out and your final regular season game now. Here's another question you mentioned. You have a daughter in college lick. So you're six years old. How old were you when you became a dead? I became a dad when I met my wife when I was twenty four and I my wife Dr from the previous relationship but I don't differentiate let somebody asks me. But that's that's how I have a daughter that's twenty four and I'm thirty six by the same thing armor. Yeah I married a woman who had a child with a man who lost his life unfortunately tragically at nine eleven. And I don't think of him as my steps and I think it was my son or your daughter. I'm sure exactly. That's that's how we operate that that's the way to go. So what you mentioned all those things a lot of family time. Is there anything that you want to do professionally speaking still in the next chapter of your life. Yeah there's some things I definitely have opportunity to. Do you know since I've been look up. I'll definitely kind of branched off into the broadcasting world Done a lot of BDO JUST TV or radio. And I really enjoy that obviously keeps you around the game engaged about Bill goes additional relationships and I continue to do something at least speak about something that I love. So we'll see what I do. Something Phoenix There's several other outlets out out there. That are have a chance to at least have anything with You know probably really start down here at immediate role during the Super Bowl So I'm looking forward to that as well then I have some other things think I would do with my foundation for their kids as well while vomit these transition processes well so Couple of things on the horizon and kind of have to take time handed out and for those who don't know you establish the Aces Foundation. Were your mission is to support you through emphasizing accountability taking on the community striving driving for educational excellence while.

The Dallas Cowboys Hired Mike McCarthy on Tuesday Booze Day the Carolina Panthers Hired Matt Rule and the New York giants from the process of finalizing a deal to hire the Patriots special teams coordinator and wide receiver coach. Joe Judge and NAT leaves the Cleveland Browns as the lone NFL team in this head. Coaching cycle not to have a head coach at this particular point in time. But the browns have scheduled setup.

Paying carries the tug of war dodgeball in this first week was obstacle course were run through the bags push slayer, pick up forty five pound weights come back and kind of do the same thing. And and I was number one. You know, so I've been actually been carrying around his belt they say act like you've been there. But I I don't care.

You're talking about tight ends. He's particularly in Amer of Tainan prospect TJ Hawkins, here's what he had to say. First of all, he's a really complete player. And when I do my my draft notes, I have straits weaknesses transition and on TJ Hopkinson, I truly do not have a weakness. Now every player entering the league, obviously needs refinement and polish and their game. Because the NFL game is different. But I did not really feel that he had a defined weakness where I said, oh my God. He really needs work on that. He's a terrific receiver. He's an outstanding blocker. I mean, he this guy he pancakes. People one point today. Steve Greg Cosell compared Hopkinson to rob gronkowski got my attention. I will spend some time over the next few days. Look at it. More Hopkinson video looked. Looked to have a guy come out has no real weakness at a position that is that hard to find. I don't think ain't question. There's gonna be some teams very interested in trying to get him. And now you've got a guy like gronkowski who's retired. And he's been dominating the league and just wreaking havoc on the division. Maybe maybe somebody's got to go get a guy like that thing. And he could be the next guy. Like like, rob gronkowski draft is one week from today. We'll talk about a lot next week. Steve is back here. Tomorrow, our production assistance. George blast.

I thought we did a really good job of playing a fast game. But things have changed obviously, they're playing very good hockey. They're five and all last five eight one one they're playing with a lot of confidence. So it presents a great challenge for us. Their transition game is one of the best in the league it so we're gonna have to manage that part of our game.

"He's scheduled to come up with us today at sometime during the afternoon, and I don't know how we're gonna fit him in. Now, we've got. Lots of things going on including a pretty good Twitter poll, this came about as a result of the signing today, the signing of Lorenzo Alexander anything else, you want to get you before we talk about football, you good everything. Fine. You you starting to some car dealers today straighten them out a little bit. Yeah. I had a little breakfast event. I had to go down at the arena meant traffic's bad in buffalo to about seven. That's what my wife tells me. It's like it's hard to hardy from your house or my house to here is nothing. Yes, we breathe if it takes more than six minutes for me to get here. A Matt what price going? For seven and a half minutes. There's times listen there's times when we get out of here in the afternoon where instead of going through listen they four corners orchard park. I mean, it's a village. I'll go south on the two thousand nineteen and hop off and go down back east. You are around take the bypass take the bow bypass armor duals around orchard park. Sorry. I have to go through that you go through you go through these small towns at at the time when school lets out a three or four minute. Forget it yet. Right. It's got time for that. Nobody has time for so. But yeah, we're we're we're ready to move on. I I did have a busy day more hockey tonight sabres late night. What does the nine thirty face off tonight? Thirty killing me, it might take a pass. I gotta tell you here. Here's what I did at nine thirty. I'm I'm reading a really good book right now about of Babe Ruth believing that they tell you about this book. It's called the big fella actually, Kelly rude. One of our producers in the other room. Who is a she's worked at a bookstore to told me about this book. And I found it. It's great it's written by Jane Levy, who wrote a great book about Mickey Mantle from four or five years ago. The last kid, I think it was this is called the big fella and the authors done extensive research into not just Babe Ruth. But. What America was like in the twenties when Babe Ruth was really the first American sport celebrity. That's what it's all about released sport celebrity in America. What it was like in the nineteen twenties. What it was like for Babe Ruth, as you know, he had tremendous appetites variety of areas, right? And never held back and the book. I I'm sorry to bore you with this. Now, I'm listening the book is positioned on a postseason barnstorming tour the debut and his teammate Lou Gehrig, did I think it was after the nineteen twenty seven season of the Yankees were great in nineteen twenty seven that was murderers row. Yes. Yeah. But these guys typically after the season would put together a tour promoter put together tour of all the non major league cities. There were quite a few back, then they travel the country and play exhibition baseball like in San money, make extra money, and speak and go to schools and churches and Pat little kids on the headache about think about that. No telephone system was barely up a lot of people didn't have telephones all I had was a newspaper, and that was it. And it was a different world. I had I had a gentleman tell me, and he was an older gentleman than I was much and his grandfather made this case, and he his sons had listened to his grandson said, listen, I'm telling you. He was adamant his grandfather told him the story about Babe Ruth calling his shot. His grandfather was sitting in a box seats front down close. And he said it was all don't kid yourself. It was all different back. Then you could hear the players. It was why they didn't have music in stadiums have screens where they replay. None of this was going on. It was a quiet quiet place in those days. And he's at his grandfather was adamant that Babe Ruth called his shot before he hit one over the centerfield fence. And it was he think about the atmosphere that must have been like back then. Yeah. It's really compelling to kind of think back historically about. And here comes Babe Ruth whose larger than life both figuratively and literally larger than life calling shots acting up getting suspended for acting up off the field getting in trouble having girlfriends having, you know, make making no bones about it. Oh, I was out all night last night that sort of thing he was. Yeah. He was his mom and dad who Baltimore there's a little league museum there in Baltimore. And he was sent to a kit to a school for incorrigible children often. Yeah. He was j you got well, his mom and dad, they ran a bar. Right. So that was the atmosphere we've grown up in. And he he grew up with that gregarious avenue. Yeah. He was a great book. It's really a book. It's called the big fella. Now. How did he get? Oh because I can't at nine thirty. I want to be reading my book. I don't wanna watch hockey at nine thirty tonight. So I'm gonna here's what I stay up and watch. Here's what happens. Here's an killed me the last game because they went out to Edmonton Edmonton. When we score first. And it's like guy. All right. And then they score now that okay? All right. Then they scored again, I thought okay, whatever. And then then all of a sudden they kept I had to watch. Because I thought well we scored quick it's going to be a fun game. And then we I think we tied it up like two two. And so I was like, wow. And that was three and it was like the end of the first and it was like four two or three to. Wow, this is going to be grazed can be like a ten seven game, and it turned into a blowout. And I was like I was stuck there watching it like eleven thirty at getting desperate for wins. Now, aren't they? I mean, they are what four points out of the final playoffs dried up. And you know, it's funny too. Because it's a weird situation for me. And I I keep telling me, I don't know. They're still getting shots on goal. They're still pepper. And the guy is just that unlike that ten game winning streak the header in the season. None of the shots are going in right now. So let's see well tonight. They got Calgary. Steve will be upheld. Compelling television. I watch it. I'm gonna read my book. So we're doing a little schedule shuffled today with Lorenzo coming by to coming up. Now, we just learned at twelve thirty Eric would will join us, then Eric would we'll talk to us about Bobby Johnson. The new offensive line coach about his plan for the bills off season. So we're just about ten minutes away from Eric would longtime Bill center, one of the great all-time. Buffalo Bills on the line with us today from his home in Louisville, I presume at twelve thirty today. All right Twitter poll today, so Lorenzo is signed the Renzo Alexander's. We talked about his successes and unlikely a successful free agents. I need for the bills signs a one year contract extension, so whose left now, and how would you rank them as far as the bills own unrestricted free agents the guys that they get a chance to deal with. And they have that chain of free agency opens up March thirteenth. So it's a couple of months away by our count. There are seven unrestricted free agents left for the Buffalo Bills their own from last year, including.

"Buffalo's offensive futility. As clearly not good enough thought the defense came out and played played well at times and. Offense. We shower selves in the foot a little bit there at times. And then just couldn't get it going enough. We had some some I couldn't get it going enough in particular as we started to get it going south to your question gonna continue to go back and financers. Find solution. Wide receiver Calvin Benjamin on the buffalo. Offense struggling. Say man, I mean. You gotta keep. Fixed. You said having playing out we know the game down two points. Why doubts Zeta Jones on his frustration with the offensive struggles? Just not enough. It's not good enough is not good enough. Professional athletes, you know, we expect to compete at a high level and do the best that we can. We're not getting the job done. Frustrating. It hurts especially great fan base fortunate. Come out to every game. Decides linebacker Lorenzo Alexander on the bills success defensively. Guys made some good place and good coverage. Was able to get to him a little bit to them uncomfortable. And you know, good combination of Russian coverage today. Create some type of turnover exposition and take some points off. And you find a way to like they did today to kind of put us in a position where we could have won a game. Defensive tackle Kyle Williams the bills disrupted. Tom Brady's timing. I think the thing is disrupted and getting to move around. He says he says tough to sag because of how it can distribute to football and do those things but trying to get him to move. His feet is is is pivotal thing for us. But like I said, I think at the end of the day come down to they created a couple of turnovers, and we didn't it ends up being the difference in the game. Safety Jordan player. The buffalo defense has been carrying the load. Each week. We kinda come in with the mindset that we're gonna have to be the ones that win the game that we're not be the ones that take the football away. And like I say give our offense good field position in order to put points on Gordon thin quite said again, we fell short of that today. And this this team gay and say what you said offense defense best though, you gotta figure out ways to get office football. Cycles. Go around the.
