They saw the two moments that I think of when I think of Super Bowl all think of both center on safety play, Ronnie one was Super Bowl 11 were Sandy White went across the middle, and I think it was George Atkinson. Um, I got a real monster hit on Sammy White. The other one was Super Bowl 23. When Ickey Woods was running with a lot of confidence, and then you stepped up and hit him right in the mouth. And I don't think that he ran with the with the same kind of feel the rest of the day. What do you remember about Super Bowl 23? That hit and E mean the tone setting hit in the biggest game with the nation watching? That's gotta be a thrill. No, it's a thrill.

He recognized that in these kind of moments, there are certain things that Trying to do and you're trying to accomplish. That's what we were looking for. We're looking with those kind of moments. We saw one of those moments with Brock and Brady on the touchdown. It was, you know, Great design play. Went behind the line of scrimmage. Awesome plague well executed. You. You look back at that moment and say That was a great moment for the two of them and a great moment for Tampa. But yeah, you you look for those moments and, uh, No in plus for me, you know in that gang I just want to go. You know you were once, so I just wanna get a little respect, man.

You know thoughts and knew that there was something there that he saw. And I think one of the great things about Bill is that When someone like that gives you that kind of, you know, stamp of approval. And then then then, then he goes to Tampa and I believe In life. Sometimes you are in a position where all the sudden things Are the perfect thing for you. Meaning he goes to the team where they're gonna play. Cover two and they go. Goes to a team where they're gonna really Allow Him to take advantage of this skills. Had he gone to the Raiders and had he gone to another team?

All right, so Let's get to this. Sean Payton was on good morning football today. And as much as we talk about the Stafford in the golf carousel, then what's gonna happen with the showing Watson that rumblings about there a car and then you know the being the sea level. The other quarterbacks. The Donald's. The two is etcetera. What will happen in New Orleans? It's It's not getting the attention that it should. Maybe because we all take for granted or assume that's going to be James Winston. Here, Sean Payton, then you and I can obviously respond to this coach this morning. We had a great exposure for one year with Jameis Winston and you know, we had enough time to see what we had with him as a player as a leader as an athlete. I really like what? We had a chance to see even a tremendous leader for this team, and that's hard to do When you come in new and free agency your first year, a zoo backup quarterback Him along with Taysom Hill. Who's in the building? We've said it all along. You know, we're gonna develop and coach those guys and James is one of those guys that we have. Ah, big, interesting, All right. He's one of the guys. But, you know, let Shawn knows this. He's kind of playing a little bit of the fence. Obviously, he's one of the guys, but you're not gonna go into the season. With guys. You have got to make a decision, because quite frankly, if the Saints don't make a decision and commit to James Winston, somebody's gonna swoop in. I'm not saying they're gonna give him $30 million, but somebody's gonna give him you know, in that 15 16 18 range. I believe, I think Come in quarterback their team. Look, this is different than Mario to who we talked about. Yesterday, bt the Raiders locked him up on a two year deal as a just in case like we don't know, we're gonna find out what we what we find out it's worth the extra year. If he if we actually need him and don't want people coming in to try to poach him, and that's exactly what's going to happen with Jamie's Winston. Not that you know, James is going to go get $30 million or something..

This is this is awesome. You know, congrats to everything that you have going on. I know we're gonna talk about me. But you know, we always when we're in this position, especially myself. We have to give each other our roses. You know when they deserve himself. I appreciate everything that you're doing, man. Listen, T o appreciate it, but it's all about you. I got a lot of callers who say nice things about me. I appreciate it coming from you. There's so much to talk about, and I know you have a new one label. I know you. You there's also the playoffs. There's a lot I want to discuss with you and start off. One of the first things were in the middle of the playoffs. I gotta ask you The NFL when you played, it was legitimately called in many spaces on No fun league is just like you. Don't celebrate. You put your head down. He scored a touchdown. You run back to the huddle Now a day here and 2021. You can't see it such down score without the entire team running to a video board that the NFL put up. What do your thoughts on how the NFL has changed and what you did versus was being celebrated now. Well, I mean, I think it's ah, It's a great thing for the league. It's something that you know, at one point time they tried to take away and as you mentioned, um you know everything that the league is celebrating now. On being embraced. I was heavily criticized for there's a lot of commentators, namely, mostly Ah, lot of white commentators. Some of those were old school guys. When I played some of those guys left. Left the game and then went into the booth. And you know for me, I think I became an easy target at the hands of Skip Bayliss. Hey, was I think a journalist beat writer in San Francisco in the first few years. You know, there was nothing ever heard about Mia's forced my personality things that nature I was always quiet. I was very humble. Very respectful. These are some of the things that he has has written about me is for us, His observance of me even just talking to some of my teammates and coaches, and it wasn't until I started to really Feel confident in myself on the field and in my ability that I came a little bit. Like I came out of my shell a bit and I started to just have fun with the game and I wanted to just do something that motivated and inspired me. And so I started to do these touchdown celebrations. And what have you And you know, with skilled Bayliss and some of the things that were transpiring. At that time, you know, people started to criticize me for celebrating, and he's just basically kind of took that and ran with it. And then it got to the point that I like said once I became started become a household name. Once I started to Come out from under the shadow of Jerry Rice, my teammate who was considered the greatest of all time at receiver, I started to emerge into T O who people know me as now. And so a lot of people didn't know how to take that. They didn't need it because I wasn't Jerry Rice. I wasn't that guy that as you mentioned you alluded to you score a touchdown and you give it to the referee and you Go back to the sideline. I wanted to have fun with the game and you're scoring touchdowns was part of really my motivation for getting into the end zone. It was nothing less than that. And so people, um, you know, really, they mistook who I was. They mistook my character based on some of the things that, uh Skip Bayless has started to say about me and some of these commentators, and then it started to rub. You know some of the the opposition the other teams the wrong way because Was starting to be on ESPN pretty much every weekend because I was getting to the end zone and I was doing these dances and it became a topic. So now it's I'm being selfish. Now it's I'm taken away from. You know my teammates. I'm taking away from the team because now it's like, OK, I'm pointing the fingers all that myself. All eyes are on me. But I never really looked at it that way. J R. I would just have it. I just went out there and I just wanted to have fun with the game. And so if you look at where the game is now, you would have to say I wouldn't say that I was a trendsetter because they were You know, guys, we were dancing in the end zone. Yeah, Prior to me playing yourself. They may go back. Yeah, right. You think about the Ickey Shuffle? You think about Billy White shoes? Johnson? These are some of the guys that just cos come to mind. Maybe they didn't get into the end zone is often is the idea. Which is probably the difference, But I was doing nothing different than what they were doing. I just probably did it with a little bit more flair I just became, You know, I just wanted to enjoy the game. And if you think about where we are now, everything that has transpired. You know, we talk. We talk about racial injustice, racial inequality When you think about systemic racism for me. I knew all this stuff was going on because I was raised by grandmother who basically mentioned that some of these things were gonna happen. It may not have been in your face. But when you talk about systemic racism, it's not gonna be in your face. I knew of these things. And so for me when I saw White commentators and analysts saying these things about me based on information maybe from one or two guys in the locker room players or coaches that really didn't know me as a person that was saying these negative things behind my back, and then that That really kind.

"Receiver with us. It's my main man. Tear a lone star. Oh, how you doing, brother? I'm good, man. Thanks for having me appreciate that. This is this is awesome. You know, congrats to everything that you have going on. I know we're gonna talk about me. But you know, we always when we're in this position, especially myself. We have to give each other our roses. You know when they deserve him, So I appreciate everything that you're doing, man. Listen, T o appreciate it, but it's all about you. I got a lot of callers who say nice things about me. I appreciate it coming from you. There's so much to talk about, and I know you have a new one label. I know you. You there's also the playoffs. There's a lot I want to discuss with you and start off. One of the first things were in the middle of the playoffs. I gotta ask you The NFL when you played, it was legitimately called in many spaces on No fun league is just like you. Don't celebrate. You put your head down. He scored a touchdown. You run back to the huddle Now a day here and 2021. You can't see it such down score without the entire team running to a video board that the NFL put up. What do your thoughts on how the NFL has changed and what you did versus was being celebrated now. Well, I mean, I think it's ah, It's a great thing for the league. It's something that you know, at one point time they tried to take away and as you mentioned, um you know everything that the league is celebrating now. On being embraced. I was heavily criticized for there's a lot of commentators, Uh, namely, mostly, ah, lot of white commentators. Some of those were old school guys. When I played some of those guys left. Left the game and then went into the booth. And you know for me, I think I became an easy target at the hands of a skilled Bayliss. Hey was I think a journalist beat writer in San Francisco and the first few years you know, there was nothing ever heard about me. It's for my personality things that nature I was always quiet. I was very humble. Very respectful. These are some of the things that he has has written about me is for us, His observance of me even just talking to some of my teammates and coaches, and it wasn't until I started to really Feel confident in myself on the field and in my ability that I came a little bit. Like I came out of my shell a bit and I started to just have fun with the game and I wanted to just do something that motivated and inspired me. And so I started to do these touchdown celebrations. And what have you and you know, with with skilled Bayliss and some of the things that were transpiring at that time. You know, people started to criticize me for celebrating, and he just basically kind of took that and ran with it. And then it got to the point that I like said once I became started become a household name. Once I started to Come out from under the shadow of Jerry Rice, my teammate who was considered the greatest of all the time at receiver. I started to emerge into T O who People know me as now And so a lot of people didn't know how to take that. They didn't. They did because I wasn't Jerry Rice. I wasn't That guy that as you mentioned, you alluded to you score a touchdown and you give it to the referee and you go back to the sideline. I wanted to have fun with the game and you're scoring touchdowns was part of really my motivation for getting into the end zone. It was nothing less than that, and so people Um, you know, really. They mistook who I was. They mistook my character based on some of the things that, uh Skip Bayless has started to say about me and some of these commentators, and then it started to rub. You know some of the the opposition the other teams the wrong way because I was starting to be on ESPN pretty much every weekend because I was getting to the end zone and I was doing these dances and it became a topic. So now it's I'm being selfish. Now it's I'm taken away from. You know my teammates. I'm taking away from the team because now it's like, OK, I'm pointing the fingers all that myself. All eyes are on me. But I never really looked at it that way. J R. I would just have it. I just went out there and I just wanted to have fun with the game. And so if you look at where the game is now, you would have to say I wouldn't say that I was a trendsetter because they were You know, guys, we were dancing in the end zone. Yeah, prior to me playing yourself. They may know back. Yeah, right. You think about the Ickey Shuffle? You think about Billy White shoes? Johnson? These are some of the guys that just cos come to mind. Maybe they didn't get into the end zone is often is the idea. Which is probably the difference, But I was doing nothing different than what they were doing. I just probably did it with a little bit more flair I just became, You know, I just wanted to enjoy the game. And if you think about where we are now, everything that has transpired. You know, we talk. We talk about racial injustice, racial inequality When you think about systemic racism for me. I knew all this stuff was going on because I was raised by grandmother who basically mentioned that some of these things were gonna happen. It may not have been in your face. But when you talk about systemic racism, it's not gonna be in your face. I knew of these things. And so for me when I saw White commentators and analysts saying these things about me based on information maybe from one or two guys in the locker room players or coaches that really didn't know me as a person that was saying these negative things behind my back, and then that That really kind of prompted them to say the things that they did, and so anything negative that they could have said about me. That's what they did. But when you look at today's game just because of So many social media platforms that he got these guys have using the voice for May I was voiceless innocence because.

"I thought there was an interesting dichotomy Who There's a big war s A T word this week. What? I saw these two things. What won the reaction in Cleveland to Browns fans who have been through the wringer? And they got a playoff appearance, and then they're gonna playoff win. And then the question asked by repair the statement made by Rebecca Toe back on Twitter, where, she said, If I wasn't a Bengals fan, I'd really question how anyone could be a Bengals fan. And so I want to use those two points. And I'm guessing part of any answer to Rebecca's question would be would be the belief you'll experience something eventually, like Browns fans did last weekend. That's why that's how that's the how and why of being a Bangles faith for those who would say, what is wrong with you, you'd say, but you don't know I'm in it. I'm clinging to the hope and the dream of and it would be something like that happened in Cleveland Browns fans over the weekend. But for me as a lifelong Bengals fan, the explanation of the how unwise It's very simple. The Bengals were in my didna. I grew up with the Bengals. I spent my summers in Wilmington, a training camp, getting autographs of the players. I was Ken Anderson, Isaac Curtis in the backyard. When I was playing football, I experienced a seminal moment with the Bangles in my teenage years with the Freezer bowl. I've seen two Super Bowls that taste that injection into my bloodstream is the reason that's the how and why. I'm a Bengals fan while there's makes a dude, really, how are you? A big old man? I would say that And I would say As a result, I wait and I hope that I claim and I keep coming back for more. I've been through forest in Kenny and Sam and Boomer and David Shula. And could Jonah and Big Daddy and to Marvin to Zach. I am a For lack of a better word. I'm a prisoner. I've got no place else to go if I can. If I can quote Richard Gere in an officer and a gentleman. I've got no place. No, sir. I've got no place else to go. That's how I answer to the strangers. How the why I'm a Bengals fan. Because I believe and I got within 90 seconds of feeling it in 2015 and Jeremy Hill because I believe one of those moments is coming again. That This is so weird to say. At Browns fans experienced last weekend. But think of how long they waited and what they went through to get to the emotion. The return on their investment last weekend, said of the phones. Adam is in reading and he is first up What you say Adam. Hey, Lance, I worry. I'm well, Thanks for calling. Oh, thanks for having me. Uh, yeah, I just first of all, after the echo everything you just said, except put it in a brown sense of its own Ordina and to really kind of put it in perspective a little bit. We're talking someone my age just gone through the drive and the fumble. Art Modell stealing our team from us. The the dropped past the 2002 game against the Steelers. Um all sort of Became the culmination of the first quarter of last Sunday where I had to look at my wife and say what is going on 28. It's 28 to nothing against the Steelers and Pittsburgh. We haven't won in 17 years. What is happening right now. It was almost like the stars finally aligned and and everything came together. And, of course, again as being a Browns fan. There's there was that On the back of my mind how we gonna blow them? Yeah, I was gonna happen and And you know, a lot of people don't like this, but you know, there's there's a brash young quarterback up there that said right away at the NFL Combine. I'm the guy that could turn this franchise around. Get out, not not sure how far we're going to go with this, but but it seems like he's kind of the point. Right now. He's really kind of been the spearhead of that of that change and It's exciting looking forward to Sunday Big time. Um, you know, I wouldn't be surprised if we shot the world. But then again, I'm a brown saying I wouldn't be surprised. We got beat by 50 very well, said Adam. Thanks, buddy. Thankfully, I have a great night. That's exactly what I'm looking for. Because I think what what? And this is why I'm pairing it together. I think what Browns fans air saying is going to be the same type of explanation for what Bengal fans are going to call and say it is that That belief made maybe of you. It is the year a glutton for punishment, but it's it's that belief. But think of how long the wait Woz think about long Wait has been for each of the franchises. And the Browns felt it last week. Their fan base felt it last weekend, I think is Rebecca pointed out. If she wasn't one, she'd wonder how the heck anybody could do it. I think they'd say we do it. Because we're thinking, hoping, if not praying, we're going to experience what the Browns fans experienced last weekend. Troy's the next stop. Hi, Mike. Hey, thanks for taking my call. Mike. Put it into words. Why? Why are you a Bengals fan? How would you tell an outsider what? What is possibly an explanation for what you're doing? If I wasn't a bingle, Stan, I probably wouldn't be. Um, but I just what? I was born in 76. So I grew up in the eighties and nineties watching it with my dad. Uh, yep, right? Yep. Watching. Remember the Super Bowl of the eighties, and then just the Ickey woods and the whole thing, So it's just that you guys were saying the Edna It's just that my being a I mean, I just Like that. When I heard that I was like, Yep. Best it me next, it says, I mean, Uh, yeah, I just got stripes man. That's a great way to put it And, you know, look at the run they had with Marvin Loose ball. Those playoff games they got into even though they will absolutely But what they were doing something they were. They were playing good football. It was exciting, and you know they couldn't do it. So that that's that's why I'm the Bangles fan it really because just grown up watching it with my dad. That's what I'm looking for. Mike. You're the man. Thank you. All right. Have a great night. Alright, This is working. I debated all day. I said, can I combine these and And presented and get something, and I think we're getting something and think of it from a brown Bengals fan standpoint, in terms of the return on the investment, the emotional return on the investment house severely taxed. You have been how that's been stretched because the memories in the evidence are certainly fading. If you're a newer, younger fan. How we looking At least if you're the you know, a 40 something and above demographic. You. You've seen a playoff win and a Super Bowl as as a kid, at least others the younger, great no playoff wins plenty of heartbreak. Carson's knee and these thumb. Jeremy's fumble mean that 2015 playoff game was going to be the moment I've said this before I was celebrating with Casey. What Father son older, younger, and that would have been the connection of generations that experienced something positive for the Bangles. Me connecting my two Super Bowls to Casey actually being able to say I watched the Bangles and they went to the playoffs. Because if you're younger than the 40 something crowd you're going. I don't know what a playoff win is, or looks like All right, let's do this a little bit longer. I made an executive decision. I'll carve out at least another segment for this because we'll pick up Alex Anonymous Bengal fattest checking in Terry's checking in marks on a cell market. Another mark is in Sydney. It's a two for tonight to begin the show won. I got no problem admitting that I was happy for Browns fans last week, I thought it was cool. I thought what they finally got to experience in the emotion attached to it was wrought. It was real and it was genuine. It's what sports are all about. And then I saw Rebecca's tweet nicely, boy. That's a great way to put it, because I know how many times my friends will call me and say, Dude, what do you do it? How are you? A penguins fan? And she said, you know, she already wants what? She'd have no idea how anybody could be a Bengals fan. Well, you'll tell me how you do it. Why you do it? As we continue. Check news. Bottom.

"I don't think this is an argument. I'd say the Bengals were more relevant in Sam wife his time his head coach than any other period in team history. Agree, disagree From the sugar huddle, and you don't live in Cleveland and the Ickey Shuffle and a classic iconic Super Bowl game against the 40 Niners. I would say when Sam Wyche was the coach The Bengals were the most relevant they've ever been in the 53 year history the franchise. As a result, I put him at three At number four. David Shula. No, I just said, if you're paying attention number four, Marvin Lewis inherits a two and 14 mess and by his third season had the Bengals back in the playoffs for the first time in 15 years. He is, I said earlier restored credibility to the franchise. He raised the bar of expectations. He got into the playoffs for five consecutive seasons. He rebooted the team. After a 4 11 and one season in 2000 and eight does the reboot gets him to the playoffs in 2000 and nine hey, turned around a foreign 12 team in 2000 and 10. Into five straight playoff appearances. His seven playoff appearances equal the combined total of Brown, Greg and y sh Who Maybe I should move you up higher. And it is tough to downgrade to resume that includes being the longest tenured coach with the most wins and the most playoff appearances in franchise history. Wait a minute. I need to readjust this. Longest tenured coach, most wins and most playoff appearances in franchise history. However. Kind of like any conversation with Marvin. You doubted Aditya blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. And then, like comma, however, or or butt and the butt would be I find it difficult to elevate him above forth. With the fact he was Owen, seven in the postseason, the losing his postseason coach in the history of organized football, and you know, I I have always I've argued this point over the years and people talk about what he did or what he didn't do what he could have done with couldn't do because of Mike Brown and I always say No. In the end, Mike Brown had nothing to do with the playoff losses. And people always wonder like attach that the part of the resume, those teams were good enough to get to the playoffs seven times under Marvin Lewis. Seven times They were good enough to get to the playoffs. All seven times they lost. What does that have to do with Mike Brown? It certainly has much more to do with the head coach of the game. Those seven times. If you are wondering, winning percentage wise Forrest Gregg 5 57 Marvin 5 18 Sam for 85 Paul 42. Playoff appearances. Marvin seven, Paul three, Sam to Forest, too. Winning seasons. Marvin seven. Wish three Paul four Forest to, however, I also I hesitate to give Marvin full credit for 16 years. Because that longevity is in large part tied to Mike Brown's resistance to change. So, Yeah, You got it? Well, but he was there for 16 years. Longest tenure, Okay? Yeah, but he was there for 16 years because Mike didn't like change. What did he earn? 16 years there? Would agree with the previous caller. After 15. They should've cut Beeton and moved on after the debacle in the postseason, but they didn't Division titles. Marvin for Paul to Sam to Forest one. Super Bowl appearances. Sam one, Forest one, Paul zero, Marvin zero. All right, We'll head down the stretch.
