Well before we was just putting him around on ventilator. Now there's more of a process before you have to get to that point. You hope you don't get to that point. I really don't follow. I was following the news with the beginning of the covert for three months. I actually was driving myself crazy between in the channel from Fox News, CNN, MSNBC and local stations. I didn't every night I was recording shows. I never watched the news before, but I just got a note a little bit. But then I realized it was driving me absolutely insane. It's been a solid two month now. No news in the house. There are all of the music or music station in the background as I'm doing that, but not sports is here. So now you know, I'm back into the Sports game and on DH. What a game. It's been. I only could have prayed that that it was going to be this good. Ah, the last three weeks. You know what this says.

Sometimes I actually questioned myself after it's over. But I always pick on my side and say, Well, I can't be there bet against me in this spot here, situationally, But most of the time, you know, 80 80 to 90%. We're gonna beat the closing line. And that that is one of the key elements of success. And we have done it this year again after the Kobe a ll the least coming back Baseball and MLB and N ba matchups. Um, we have really done very well on these things. And it might Mikey and successes is no, the team behind me, so I just try to keep up. What we're doing, and I just know we're gonna win. In the end. I may not win every weekend. I may even have a losing month or two for the year. And I have mean maybe because I had a streak there. 10 months in a row, nine months, Rory. Why want so? Um, it's just, you know, we just keep keep working. We'll work hard team works all day. Reading social media means so much to give a nugget of information of the people. Just follow your players while follow your coaches. Follow your assistant coaches. Follow your trainers. There's so many little nuggets of information you can pick up just following silver media. However, I know a lot of work on like my old man told me, Bill, you take the fun out of gambling. But this really isn't gambling for me. This is a business, so I know in the end, I'm gonna win.

I mean, you had that feeling that you just always wanted to, you know, to help out the small guy, But there were those other guys that take you off. Where if they'd ask you for a play, you come up. You give him a play, and then they go. All right. Well, can I parlay with you? You're like, Are you kidding me? You know, like you can't. Some people just can't be happy.

I know that going into the hall of fame means different things to different people. I'm sure with coaches. It's one thing with players. It's another thing but you've been a major contributor to football for a long time. Which got the that honor. Tell me a little about what your reaction was to it. Well first of all it was wanted shock to have an opportunity to to be thought of in. That vein is an incredible experience for someone like myself. It's not something you think about as you as you work every day. I spent thirty eight active years working primarily in the personnel and of the National Football League. So you don't You don't you don't ever see or think that you're going to get an opportunity to one day where that gold jacket and Lo and behold that presented itself so. I'm still in shock. I'm still on all over it and It's a it's an honor a lot. A lot of people played a very important role and What I was able to do to help me along and I look at it more more or less as a team thing than anything else A lot helping Green Bay and had a lot of help obviously an open so I can't take credit for a lot of things that went on and Oakland but certainly in Green Bay. I'm very proud of what we're able to accomplish there and How we resurrected that franchise. Let me ask you because you did make an art form in other words personnel evaluation. You had touch. You had a feel for tell me a little bit about how that developed in You. Gravitated to that direction and football. Well I had a tremendous teacher. I was Nineteen sixty three. I was brought to Oakland As as a talent assistant Under Al Davis and he sat with me and taught me every aspect of town evaluation. It was a wonderful time for me. American football raiders. American football league There were only eight teams. We had thirty three players so that meant a whole. There were two hundred and forty four players. We would sit in the room at night. Alan and myself with the four other coaches that we had and we studied each team and we broke it down by position. So I'm saying we that's not. I shouldn't say that they really did. I was sitting in their absorbing. But you could watch for example Who the best left tackle who the best corners were things of that nature and by repetitive nature. I always like to compare everything by comparison variable there. We were able to ascertain who the best players were at each position in the American football league That's an education. Anybody would love to have I was always big on comparison. Compare one player to another. And that's Kinda how I learned. It did yeah. He had a particular philosophy about evaluating players. No matter what the position was Ron he really did sizes fever very important to him And he stressed that And he was always looking for explosive players. Both sides with a ball is looking for different makers on offense and difference makers on defense. Obviously he felt and I'm sure everybody is well aware of that. That followed the raiders. During that time then order to shut it team down you need to corners and someone who could apply pressure As as a rusher but he really stressed the cornerback. Position and offensively It was a receiver position. I think he's lean to that a little bit because that's what he coached. Did he adjust his a playing philosophy for the team to the players that he had or did the players did he go out and draft players that fit his philosophy of how he wanted the team to play? He went out and drafted players. That would sit as philosophy of how you want to wanted. The team supply He he wasn't He had he was Said his mind which way he wanted to go and the particular players he wanted to play for him and that's why he was able to acquire so many really good players in trades like Willie Brown here addiction to name a few. Those are for the the really old raider fans guys like Tom. Keating and eventually he ended up Making the raiders who are also ran into just a championship caliber team in fact. It's probably the only team when you stop and think about that when you think of the Oakland Raiders. You think of one person. You don't think of a player you think of. Al Davis and He's just a remarkable remarkable remarkable Executive in professional football. Let me ask you about the the move from Oakland Los Angeles. Oakland is obviously a blue collar type of town. The fans were that way as well. Los Angeles is Hollywood down. There did that. Have any effect on the raiders. That moved down there a very interesting question I I. I'm not sure I don't think so. I think you know if you second guess or Be like a Monday morning quarterback. I'm not sure we went to the you know. In retrospect looking back. Now I'm not sure we went to the right place. Maybe we should've tried to go to Pasadena Planet Rose Bowl something like that. But I don't think had any Any big effect I. It was a lot different though. I mean suddenly. You had limousines appearing in the parking lot take in players to engagements at night. You know. We never had that up at Oakland. Find funny if you think about it. Ron And you know the Oakland areas well in the seventies they had the Oakland A.'s. And of course the story with them was they had so much talent but when they were off the field they be fighting in the locker room. And then you think about the Raiders Oakland Raiders and they had all these distinct personalities crazy guys as well. I mean when you've got somebody like a Kenny Stabler and an Jack Tatum. But yet when they got on the field they played so well and so successfully. Is that something? That's just in the air in Oakland or was it just a philosophy by the people who are running those teams you think I think we had great great locker room presence. The people in the locker room ran. I'm talking about the players and this show is Jim Auto. Then it became Gene upshaw became Dave Dhabi. We have guys those guys the locker room. They police themselves if he has somebody on a little bit off kilter or off Center. He was quickly. Grab back and forced to succumb to their pressure. If you will and it was always about playing a game always about playing a game. What were the challenges for you? When in nineteen seventy five you joined the expansion Tampa Bay buccaneers. You were the vice president of operations and you help build that team. That would advance the seventy nine. Nfc Championship game taking a team from scratch in building it. Tell me about what that was like and what we are. Philosophy was in building it. Well very interesting experience for me. You know and I'm on to my own horn here as the only real expansion team before free agency in four years that in four years played championship game for the right to go to the Super Bowl. No one else ever did not Tom Landry. Not Tex Schramm where the cowboys. Paul Brown with the Bengals so I am very very proud of that now. It was a very big learning experience because unfortunately in that time period there were no quarterbacks that were available. Those two years were disastrous. Seventy five and seventy six in the draft or seventy six seventy seven. I should say seventy six seventy so The best quarterback to come out was a fellow by name. Steve Berg And you know yeah very nice career. We couldn't hit. We could not find one. It was very very frustrating to me because I believe in order to be successful in the in the national football league. You have to have a quarterback and We just couldn't come up with on when you look at the Success that they had in going to that. Nfc Championship game in about a minute. What was the key to that season? You know I was fired by the seventy nine the seventy nine but you put you put the building blocks in place. Yeah we had sixteen or seventeen guys that I had something to do with ever that were playing in that game on both sides. I think what happened was Play better football team playing some. They had one heck of a defense Leroy Salman is a good football player as As anybody's ever going to see I I've only been around one guy very similar to him. That'd be Reggie White with the packers. And and how long with the raiders? I shouldn't say one guy that's two guys. They're so he was. He was a dominant football player. As those other two guys were but I think that's it. I think just the rams were better team. Ron Hold on just a second. We're talking with Ron. Woolfe member of the football hall of fame. We'll talk about those great years up in Green Bay and how he put that team together as well and we do that as we continue across country and around the world on sports byline. Have.

"Has joined us here on sports byline. We're talking about his life and his career offensive. Lineman played for the Washington Redskins for his entire thirteen year career and he went to four pro bowls. He also went to four super bowls winning three of them. Seventeen twenty two and twenty six and he was named the NFL's one thousand nine hundred eighty s all decade team. In as one of the seventy greatest redskins he played his College Ball at Louisville. Let's talk about Joe Gibbs for just a second. Tell me a little bit about how he brought this team along. Joe Factor in quite a bit because of his offense of mine and the way he can make adjustments during the game halftime of game and to put us in position to be successful. What we have on the offense of Fox you know we had the guys up from AL principle. We had the running back. We had a very good quarterback at all those times that we play and Gel was very good at putting personnel together as far as what their abilities for and who to do certain things and we have different packages that came in about for different things that we wanted to run. When you look at Joe Gibbs coaching style was he a raw type of Guy. Did he give very exciting HALF TIME OR PRE GAME? Speeches or what? What type of Temperament did he have. Well I don't know if I would call Joe Roff type of guy. I think Joe was very very cobb and very straightforward and then he treated us like man and told us what the situation was stacked and what we needed to do to be successful weekend week out and he addressed things that way and they'll tell them what we needed to do but we needed to go out there and they didn't give us any rob. Ross speeches and I think the guys kind of knew that and he balked ass together that fit his personality and stuff that we kind of blended all together one group. You Know Joe Gibbs. I like into being like Vince. Lombardi the same type of temperament and I just wondered how he dealt with John Regan's because John was a free spirit I don't think there was any doubt about that as well and John of course Reminded me of some of the players that obviously Vince had on his squad as well and I just wonder how he dealt with him. How many look upon John? I think John was treated to fly. The rest of us were treated and there was some issue that Joe. Ask Not what this job and any other individual impact team and wasn't brought out in front of the team that loses dealt with on the individual basis and jobs office as far as what needed to be addressed. And how things need to handle Joe handle it that way and a Lotta guys that if we all expect that we did not want to be I guess embarrassed in front of our peers and Joe knew that he treated us like the man that were and then they expected that and then a quiet one on one basis some issue the Joe was also very I guess motivating his way he wasn't it wasn't a guy that got up very raw. He had all this assistant coaches that job with very into game plan and knew what needed to be done and you knew that because he knew what he put out there and be very competent weekend awake out looking at the game clancy create a course so we use surprised that when he did leave. Footba any went into NASCAR racing that he had success in that sport as well as what he had in football. No surprise me knowing his personality and knowing how his organization and how he works and how he brings in the right people for the right situation then surround themselves but the best people he needs to have to be successful and he did that and he's continuing to still do that and and how he treats everybody as Human Beings has man as soda employees and he takes care of people. I think you know as well as I do. Joe that the Redskins had one play. That was kind of their bread and butter. Play was the counter. Trey tell me a little bit about why that was so effective effectiveness from my viewpoint as because of the motion and the Backfield The running back with step opposite to the direction he was going to end up running to and the plot side that we were running to but blocking everybody now and would leave two guys left for the pulling guard and tackle the pickup one dogwood kick out one and the tackle which what that myself pulling up for the other individual that was the last and that the flow of it would get the flow of the people throwing away from the direction you were running and made it easier for the sideline because blocking everybody down. Keep going in that direction. Let me ask a little bit about that. Play as well because I remember watching it so many times and seeing you out in front and you know you're a big dude you're over. Three hundred pounds stood at six seven. And and everything. Was there anything that stood out about that play consistently That made it successful that you'll not forget well. I just think that many times that we ran over the years it's three or four years and to come around and always be running into. That's not sometimes back the majority of time to buy coming around. I would be leading up on the secondary people because our other side of the line at such outstanding job and walled off you know down linemen and the linebackers only thing that was left but some secondary for me to pick up. Let's talk about super bowl seventeen You defeated the Miami Dolphins twenty seven seventeen in your first super bowl and you concluded season which the players strike short in that season. Actually denying games but it was the seventeen unanswered points in the second half that gain the super bowl record. Two hundred and seventy six yards. Tell me a little bit about that game from your perspective. Well we knew we kind of had a way advantage over the dolphins defensive fry and it was just a matter of time that we will wear that decent soprano down and we did it system we can met with the offense a bribe in town then and bring in that running back John Records out that you know more than Davos. The big played started happening. We have the big play with hit for the fourth of want with John's going from forty three yards out that time the game in our favorite we got the lead and then we just ran the clock out for there and we ought that running game. We were able to hit. Some play. Action passes off of the score touchdowns that way so it was a combination of having a strong run again though about passing game for some big play what. I remember about Super Bowl. Twenty two down in San Diego was down there. You guys win that game. Of course. Defeating the broncos forty two to ten you fall behind in the first quarter ten nothing and then you scored forty two unanswered points including a record thirty five in the second quarter. Doug Williams was your quarterback and I what I remember about. It was the silliness of the press during that week. During a press meeting Doug Williams was asked. How long have you been a black quarterback arbor member go of the things that came back? Doug Fan Online. What do you? What do you think was the key guys ripping off the thirty five points in that second quarter arrive it was? It's hard to say what triggered it but once it started. I mean that I play that. We started the second quarter. Doug had ricky sanders on a basic hits patter and we had a press corner. And he gave the signal for hitching Dell and then Vicky basis guy. There's an eighty yard touchdown and then the gates. Kinda open up then the running game with tending Smith and we're hitting long run for you know the counter gain and it was just Nonstop I've never been involved with all the years I've been involved with a thought that we ran. It was only eighteen. Plays and three hundred sixty seven yards of offense and thirty five points fifteen minutes. There was less than ten minutes about five minutes. We scored all yeah. I remember that and I said this game is over with Super Bowl. Twenty-six you defeated the Buffalo Bills. Thirty seven twenty four and you became the fourth team to win three super bowls along with Pittsburgh Oakland and San Francisco. You guys went fourteen and two during the regular season scored a Lotta points. Four hundred and eighty five and you want your third Or Joe Gibbs one is Is Third String quarterback out there mark rippin as the quarterback and you jumped out to a twenty four nothing lead in the third quarter and it was pretty much over by then. Yeah that was something that You know we were well-balanced that year between what market do mark a very good long ball throw and we had the three wide receiver set with our Gary Clark and Ricky Sanders. We had the ten them. In the backfield that gave us balanced. And what the thing I remember that as are decent and how they hammered Buffa Jim Kelly competing next game that are decent gave us great turnovers and stuff and short positions on the field that we were able to take advantage of and then we came out. Start in the second half Kurkova Septum on check it back to the two yard line and all we have to assist Ranchero Greg off one side and we scores so we were just a team on a mission that year we will well round that both sides of the ball offset the deep pets and we ended up going all the way it was a very satisfying and very very joyful experience to see all that come together on both sides of the ball like that and the Redskins of course we're going for their fourth super bowl the thrill of victory and the agony defeat in this one and it was super bowl number twenty eight. You lose it to the Los Angeles Raiders. Thirty eight to nine have you and reflection thought back as to what the hell happened in that game. Well we just got beat that You know we were a better team that we play them earlier that year. Shubaiba about three on our field and they they had a very good team and you know league play very well like played extremely well and they capitalize on our mistakes and we took that a screen pass Be Right before half they take in a touchdown we have tons. I think block so but they make they make the most of they capitalize lies on what we gave a return. Open some stuff. We didn't play very well. They play great and that was something that.

"And I think it's really really cool. What do you think is going to be the makeup of a raiders game? Well, first of all, you know for the road team. There will be a normal an enormous number of fans checking in we get a look at the schedule, and they will say, oh, we're going to go watch our team play the raiders and that new stadium. You know, we're gonna stay in one of the one of the many hotels, we've got more hotel rooms anybody. So we're gonna have a very very large contingent of visiting fans. I don't think there's any question about that. But the southern California raider fan base, and it's a significant fanbase because the raiders want us to for bowl when they were the Los Angeles Raiders fan base will find that they already know the Las Vegas is closer than going up to Oakland to watch the raiders. So I would expect southern California the raider fans turn out in force. And then the the premier tickets the luxury boxes. Has purchased obviously by the casinos and that will be split. There'll be raider fans as well. As out of town fans who will score those. We'll score those good tickets. And then as as they grow the community will embrace them the difference being that the the Golden Knights were born here, they're not moving here. So it's it's like this is our team the Golden Knights. The raiders will have to earn that. Okay. And there's no doubt on my mind that they will going forward. And we'll see how the fan experience is what they think about going into the stadium. Transportation will be critical sixty five thousand is a lot different than eighteen thousand at a hockey game. So there's work to doing that area are going forward. But but there's no question that this is going to be a terrific stadium experience. And we'll see how the fan base develops interesting. Brent?

Here's KCRW sterile Asman. The Rams open the bedding as one point favorites. But it appears most of the money so far is backing the patriots within hours the betting line shifted and the casinos now have the patriots as slight favorites. That's not surprising since New England has played in eight Super Bowls with quarterback Tom Brady winning five of them. Of course. None of this matters much to the Rams and head coach, Sean McVeigh, we got two more weeks left and see if we can end this thing with real big smiles after the next game.
